Usually when I have a new obsession, you guys hella know about it, because I don’t stop rabbiting on across my various channels (sorry about that…). But I haven’t widely talked about this one, for no particular reason apart from being a little lazy/busy with non-blog life recently. So let me introduce one of the sneakiest little gems that found it’s way into my skincare heart: the C200 Bubble Peeling Pad by Wish Formula.
This product was gifted to me by B2 Link for testing and feedback purposes for the company. This does not affect my review.
I love the Memebox stores here in Korea. They have a good variety of products to browse, and I love testing the Pony Effect makeup. But honestly, I rarely buy anything. I find lots of the products kinda pricey for what they are (I’m tight, but I’m saving money hard right now, so even tighter than usual!), there’s stuff I like but rarely things I just HAVE to purchase, and my experiences thus far with their products been fairly hit and miss. And the little haul I did this time was exactly the same…
I’m surprised I’m writing this review. I honestly didn’t think I’d get around to it, because for the first week of using the toner/essence, I was a little bored and unimpressed. Then two weeks went by, and I did a 180. SPOILER: that baby soft skin? Where did it come from?!
This product was provided to me by the company- as usual, this does not affect my opinions. See my Disclaimer tab for full details.
I’ve mentioned JSM Beauty pretty frequently on my Instagram and stories (most recently because of their exciting flagship store opening). They’re the beauty brand of world-renowned Korean makeup artist Jung Saem Mool, and they kindly sent me a selection of their best sellers which I was so excited about it (see my Disclaimer tab for my policies). As I wrote in my review of the Essential Star-cealer Foundation, I hugely admire Jung Saem Mool, and so my expectations have been high for all of her products. Today I’m going to be reviewing the Artist Contour Palette…let’s go!
When I saw the phrase “Whoo Spa” I didn’t really pay much attention to the rest of the email. YES PLEASE EUNOGO.
Eunogo are a medical concierge company based out of Korea and Singapore. I’ve worked with them in the past, so when they got back in touch offering me another treatment to write about, I was definitely keen. They provide a fantastic beauty service to foreigners in Korea, and, like I said, who could say no to Whoo Spa?! Let’s get into my experience and tell you a little more…settle down, this is quite a long one!

Am I a beauty blogger? Yes. Do I take meticulous care with my skincare routine to ensure as perfect skin as possible? Yes. Do I do anything with my hair? NO.
No. No I don’t…I’m embarrassed to admit but I really, truly do nothing to my hair, and it had been about a year since my last hair cut. I literally just shampoo, condition, and use a curling mousse, every couple of days. That’s it. I invest nothing, and I think most of the time, being curly and carefree, my hair usually looks kinda ok-ish.
BUT, after visiting the A. By Bom salon, my approach has kinda dramatically changed, and now I know why I need to get to the salon more often…here’s the deets of my experience!
Hi guys! So a few weeks ago I had the opportunity to make a video, testing out one of my new favourite masks, the Skin1004 Zombie Pack. This video was sponsored by B2 Link, however all views are our own, honest opinions, and I actually love this mask! I’ve used it a number of times and have been equally impressed on each occasion.
The company wanted my boyfriend, Mikey, and I to test it, and it was so fun filming this with a complete beauty no-goer. Mikey knows NOTHING about cosmetics or skincare, but he’s always up for a laugh, and it was hilarious to do this together. Hope you enjoy! I’ve included a little run down of my thoughts on the mask beneath the video too! The link to purchase is at the bottom (not an affiliate link- I do not receive anything from you clicking it).
Roses. Check. Hydration. Check. Lovely viscous liquid texture. Check. Okay, some of my favourite aspects of skincare are in this product, and I was keen to see how it worked out for me- let’s go.
I received this product courtesy Ulzzang UK, who are a company which provide access to Korean skincare products from their base in London, UK. They strictly adhere to curating only products which pass the EU regulations, and have a small but high quality collection.
You may have heard of A by Bom. They have a super fancy salon in Gangnam- a celebrity go to for hair and nails. You’re maybe less likely (until recently, when they’ve been blowing up on Instagram, more so than when I started writing this post) to have heard of their cosmetics range, which was officially launched last year. It was great to hear from the company asking if I wanted to try their products, and I didn’t resist! (PR samples- see my disclaimer for my policies). Today I’m gonna be discussing one of their sheet masks, because I think it’s actually the bomb (sorry not sorry).
In case you hadn’t noticed on my Instagram, I’m
a pretty big fan of obsessed with spring in Korea. I run around Seoul, unable to stop taking photos of every kind of flower and blossom in sight, often getting bizarre looks from older Koreans as I’m all up on their doorsteps photographing the pretty flowers outside their homes (shoutout to @adoredee ). I bombard all my social media channels with said photos and I can’t stop. My cosmetic choices also change. I go from the black hearted queen of dark nails and deep red or purple lip colours, to pastels and flowers and butterflies and princesses and clouds.
So here are my spring makeup and skincare choices, chosen because they make me feel happy, work well with my skin tone/type, and the colours suit my mood during this time of year. And I’ve also tried to include all the cherry blossom feels from here in Korea, so you can share and revel in the beauty (and it gave me a valid reason to take more photos).
