Anyone who follows me on IG will probably know I’ve been a Moonshot fan since they first launched a few years ago. They’ve steadily grown in visibility, and I still purchase and enjoy a lot of their products (their jelly pot eyeshadows are my favourite). When they recently had their first ever sale, with a shocking 50% off all products, I did a nice haul (featured in my IG story highlights if you’re interested @skinfullofseoul), and grabbed their Microfit Cushion as recommended by my friend @doniatheconsumer on IG. Let’s see how it’s worked out!
So, shockingly, I just tried a Papa Recipe sheet mask for the first time. I know I know, they’re a cult mask and I should have tried one years ago. But they were so hyped, it kind of put me off…now, I’m officially obsessed. Best masks ever, and that made me really want to visit their fairly new Garosugil flagship to check out more.
If you’ve been with me for a while, you probably know who Eunogo are- a concierge service catering to foreigners seeking beauty/surgical treatments in Korea. I’ve had previous sponsored experiences with Eunogo including Whoo Spa, and Hydrogen Toning. Earlier this week I visited Spa de Heritz with them for some facial lifting! Let’s see how I got on, y’all know by now I’m always down for a facial.
Believe it or not, I’ve only ever tried the creepily packaged “Moist Lover” face mask from Dr Jart (it was fine but nothing amazing). However I have visited their awesome store on Garosugil, and think you should too if you’re visiting Seoul. It’s pretty cool.
I’ve been featuring these products in my daily routine posts on IG a lottttt, and I wanted to share why! Wasting no time, let’s get into review.

I wanted to let you guys in on one of Hongdae’s best kept secrets- 7 Face Brush. It was my friend Claire over at @unityjackson on IG who told me about this place, and I’m so pleased she did! I’ve found some of the most affordable, and best quality, tools I’ve found in my whole time in Seoul. An amazing find!
I’m finally back, with the best of 2017! I’m sorry I’m a little late with this, but I still wanted to share.
I forced myself to cut the list down to only 10 products and it was so difficult. Like, the kinda difficult where it’s taken me over a week to be happy with my choices. I’ve tried so many fantastic products this past year, and this is definitely not an exhaustive list, but these are the choices that have been total game changers for me. If you caught last years favourites, you’ll know that in these end-of-year posts I only include products that I tested for the first time in the last 12 months.
Let’s get stuck right in!
Some of these products were sent for review/as gifts/as PR. They are only included here because they were outstanding, and I will individually disclose everything in the text.
Hi guys. So a month or so ago I reviewed the Neogen Green Tea Gauze Peeling Pads. I researched the pads pretty extensively, tested them around twice a week as suggested for a few weeks, and was left with the results I described in my first post. Whilst the results were what they were, there was something I didn’t actually know at the time about the product I was testing…
I’d never experienced dry skin before coming to Korea, no joke. Hideously dehydrated, dull, pimply skin? Yes. But dry, cracked, and even peeling? No. That was a nice little surprise during my first winter here in 2014, when my face felt like it was falling off and my nose was so crusty with all dryyyyyy. I had to go into action pretty quick to transform my skincare routine and learn how to deal with it. Every winter since then I’ve been fully prepared, and this year I’ve been testing some of the best products I’ve tried yet, that are perfect for my normal/combination skin in the sub zero temperatures. I’m here to share both my approach to my skincare in winter, and the products I swear by.
Most of the products discussed here were provided as PR samples, or gifts. I will individually disclose each product. I am in no way obliged to include any of these products in this list- they’re here because I genuinely love them out of the huge variety of PR samples/gifts I receive and products I buy.
Double cleansing is a really important step in an evening time Korean skincare routine. Why? Your first step, the oil based cleanser, breaks down your sunscreen and makeup, and the second water-based step washes away residue and grime, leaving you with your blank canvas for the rest of your routine. I don’t think any other method effectively cleanses my face.
Having said that, finding cleansers you love/can afford, can be a little more tricky. Today I’m going to be putting two oil cleansers (first step cleansers) from EOpenMarket to the test: the high end, fancy-nancy Hanyul Artemisia Cleansing Oil, versus the budget Aritaum Poyan Cleansing Oil. Let’s see how they compare!
