Flower-based skincare, who’s in? I’m definitely in! With the launch of floral-based Korean beauty brand, Mamonde, we’re once again spoilt for choice when it comes to Korean skincare. As you might have figured out by now, Mamonde, prides itself to nurture and enhance your natural beauty through the invigorating properties of flowers. The brand even has a real flower garden in Osan, located at the south of Seoul, where the key blooms like hibiscus, camellia, magnolia, honeysuckle and lotus are carefully-cultivated under expert botanists.
I’ve always been a believer of having flowers in skincare products, especially rose, because these beautiful works of nature actually provide nourishment and healing to our skin. In this post, I will share with you some of the skincare products I’ve been trying from Mamonde and hopefully you’ll find them useful for your skin too!

When my skin’s happy, I am happy! One of the main reasons why I’m really bubbly and happy-go-lucky lately is because of my skin. I’ve been feeling really confident in my skin for the past 2-3 months or so because it has drastically improved. I kid you not; I have been struggling with acne issues since I was a teenager, about 14 years old or so, to the extent that I needed to be on Oratane. The large, inflamed, cystic acne may have stop visiting me but I still get occasional break outs every month.
When I thought all hope was lost, I found a combination of different skincare products that work for me. If you’ve been following paradeoflove.com, you’ll know that one of the culprits for my clear complexion is the Allies of Skin Glow Gifter Set which contains the Molecular Saviour Mist and the Bright Future Overnight Facial.
Whether you’ve been up all night prepping for that big presentation, or partying till dawn with your co-workers after a long day at work, we’ve all had mornings where we could use an extra shot of espresso, don’t we? With days where you need an extra caffeine boost to look refreshed, Origins has got you covered.
Get instantly energised with a skin finisher powered by coffee so much so that no one knows you hit the snooze button 20 times in the morning! Presenting a new baby to the Origins GinZing family – Origins GinZing™ SPF 35/PA+++ Hydrating Prettifying Finisher – essentially a tinted moisturiser with sunscreen.
It’s been more than 6 months with ASTIQUE, The Aesthetic Clinic now and I can confidently say that my skin and complexion has tremendously improved. If you saw me from 6-8 months ago, you’d probably notice that my skin had huge zits and really pigmented acne scars, coupled with really dry skin. In recent days, my skin has taken a huge improvement for me to confidently be out and about with absolutely no makeup at all!
Last week, I went for my 4th session and I was thrilled that the therapist commented that my skin has greatly improved from the first time I visited. Dr. Ng, the doctor assigned to me right from the very start, also mentioned my skin now requires just regular maintenance to preserve the condition.
As with my usual routine, I went for the following treatments:
Kiehl’s has been a skincare brand that I heavily rely on since my university days. It has always been a brand with products that not only promise efficacy but also quality. Since 1851, Kiehl’s has sourced the world in search for the finest and most efficacious natural ingredients to bring you top-notch skincare that simply works.
One of the first few products that Kiehl’s introduced was the Calendula Herbal Extract Toner formulated with hand-picked Calendula petals, which instantly became a customer favourite for its soothing and refreshing properties. Today, Kiehl’s chemists continue to harness the soothing benefits of the Calendula flower with a new addition to the Calendula family – Calendula & Aloe Soothing Hydration Masque.
A gentle skin remedy, the Calendula Masque was developed to refresh, revitalise and hydrate all skin types, in just 5 minutes.
