A few weeks ago, I went to Korea for the first time – mainly to shop, but also sight-see and go to some main touristy destinations. At first, I had planned to buy as much as I could when I got there, but I realised how unrealistic that was because there is no way that I’m going to be able to find everything that I want, let alone being able to use everything up before they expire. So I made a list of brands that I knew I wanted and had to absolutely get, and looked at where I could buy them. Before Korea, I was in Hong Kong for a bit, so I hit up a few shops there to do some price comparisons before I headed to Korea so I knew where to buy what I wanted.
Recently, I’ve been thinking of doing a “my current” products that I am currently using/testing which might help give you a better idea on how you can rotate the products you have within your routine, and give you a different perspective/idea on when to use which products. This will start from the first step of my routine leading up to my last step :) Depending on how long it takes me to use up my products I might do an annual update or something like that? Anyways, let’s beginning with the first must of every skincare routine – Cleansers!
Korean products never cease to surprise me – I will be sharing with y’all one of the oddest cleansers I have ever seen. These came as a deluxe sample in the Memebox Sunday Funday box that I bought way back in August. It was tough testing it, because there’s three different kinds in the box and for some reason I lost all the plastic caps that kept the products well protected in its containers except for one – leaving me to only be able to test one cleanser at a time – *cries*. What is this cleanser called? Well.. It’s the RE:CIPE Slowganic Cleanser and it comes in 3 different varieties (Adlay, Green Tea and Lemon).Read More »
A couple weeks ago, the lovely Anna from styleunderpressure nominated me and a few other bloggers to do -drumroll- The Travel Tag. Anna’s posts are awesome and if you’ve never checked out her blog before, you totally should! Anyhoo, travelling is something that I always wanted to do, but not sure how to approach it in a ‘budgeted’ way. Travelling doesn’t always have to be expensive and one of my friends is great at constantly again and again proving that feat! Hopefully I’ll be able to go to more places in the future, but for now…
Given that almost 99% of what I’ve been posting about lately, you would think that I am an avid fan of KBeauty products – and maybe even solely KBeauty products! That would be pretty awesome actually, if I could have a specific preference of certain types of products and brands.. so I don’t have to jump back and forth all the time. But no! There are moisturisers out there that I felt worked pretty well for my face, and they aren’t from an Asian brand. Asian moisturisers tend to be cheaper depending on the brand that you buy it from. Sadly, the only one that I’ve ever tried was the Chia Seed Gel moisturiser from The Face Shop which I don’t see in stores anymore. Let’s get started with the moisturisers that my alter ego (aka Chasiu, which is still me) has chosen for this summer (which already passed) and this winter!
Starting this blog a couple months ago, I didn’t really think of doing much with it. Honestly, I just wanted a place where I could be my weirdest self, to boost up my self-esteem and confidence, and not worry about what other people thought of me. Thank you Zllvs for nominating me for this blog. I enjoy reading her posts about skincare and beauty – they’re extremely insightful and well-researched and I really learnt a lot from her blog! As well as other blogs as well. I’m still quite new and trying to figure out what my style of writing, posting, blogging is – so I feel really grateful to be nominated for this award. As someone with low self confidence, this blog really helped me be able to spark conversation with others, be less shy. It may not seem like it but every like, comment, view, really means a lot to me because it makes me happy to know that my blog might be useful to people out there.
Beauty boxes have been around for quite a while and its quite a competitive market. Especially in the KBeauty market where its mainly dominated by Memebox as they have been around for a while now. Will these new contenders be able to compete in this already competitive market? In this post, I will be introducing two new Beauty box brands that recently came out: Bomi Box, Kodi Blue and a potential new one (read more to find out what it is). I’m sure most of you have heard of them as they are extremely active on social media and are quite good at marketing themselves there. Let’s see what they can offer to us beauty addicts!
