Couple Video! Testing out the Skin1004 Zombie Pack with Mikey…

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).

K-Beauty beginner? Overwhelmed?

Feel as if you’re free-falling in a world of magical lotions, snail slime and kitty ear headbands?

So here are some do’s and don’ts, to try and ensure that you don’t make the same mistakes I, and many along with me, have made when first getting started in the wonderful world of Korean cosmetics.

K-Beauty Event Report: After 6pm All About K-Beauty

On September 3rd I attended a new beauty event called After 6pm: All About K-Beauty. The organisers are trying to bring together those interested in Korean beauty, in Seoul, with monthly events. I attended their 3rd event at Mary’s April in Gangnam, and wanted to briefly let you know how it was! (Disclosure: I was provided a free ticket, but this in no way affects my review. All opinions expressed here are my own).

The location was beautiful. It was about a 10 minute walk from Gangnam station, and was in a function room. It was well organised with the ticket desk right inside the door, then a snacks and beverages table in the centre of the room, with the lights and tutorial area set up against the back wall. The vibe was relaxed, and I really liked the lighting.

A (Very) Casual Nighttime Skincare Routine

I haaaate my voice. I’m originally from North of newcastle in England, and yet my accent is a very bizarre mix of some northern language, general Southern english, Bristolian, and Mancunian (thanks to my uni housemates). After over a year of teaching American English here in Korea, I have now managed to throw a big dollop of American twang in to the mix. So yeah, I don’t like making videos for this reason. HOWEVER, I do see that videos have a place in beauty blogging, and so on a random weeknight, sat in my gross green pyjama polo top, with my bathroom door open so you guys get a lovely view of my toilet (whoops), I decided to film my night time routine for that evening!
