Masking is something I can never live without in my everyday life. You may think it’s crazy, but yes, I mask every day. Due to my dry combination skin, I have to mask as often as I can, so that I can pack my skin with ample hydration and allow it to repair itself quickly.
Masking can be relaxing but for working adults like us, time is forever an issue. I often find masking a chore because of how much time I need to sacrifice at night just to do it. A usual sheet/clay mask will take you at least 20 minutes and who in the world has got time for that?!
Just as you’re fighting the thought to either sleep or mask, FOREO has its latest invention, the UFO Face Mask Device, to solve your dilemma! You only need 90 seconds to mask… say whaaat?!
When it comes to beauty products, the South Koreans are usually the leaders, providing Asia and the rest of the world amazing innovations that change the way we see beauty. I’ve recently joined the platform, Charis Celeb, and discovered 3 beauty products which I’m going to talk about in detail.
As with beauty products, you never know if you’re going to like them or not until you’ve actually tried them out. Having tried the Damior Almond Blossom Sheet Masks, the Superface Zoom In Mesh Cushion and the 72 Seconds Rapunzel Day & Night Hair Treatment Creams, I cannot say that I love them all but read on to find out which are the ones I love and are worth trying!
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!

Lately it’s been looking all rosy on my skincare shelf in my boyfriend’s room. As I’m always staying over at his place on weekends, I have been leaving bits and pieces of me (my clothes, skincare, makeup) at his place and the one set of skincare I rely on during the weekends is the LANEIGE Fresh Calming Line.
LANEIGE has always been one of my trusted Asian brands when it comes to skincare and makeup, from the Water Sleeping Mask to the BB Cushion Pore Control and recently, the new line of foundation and bases. I was so stoked when they decided to drop a whole line of skincare dedicated to restoring your skin’s natural balance with four very simple steps.
Formulated with natural litchi extract and deep-sea water, the LANEIGE Fresh Calming Line seeks to empower your skin with the fundamentals – to soothe and moisturise. Let’s go back to the basics with uncomplicated steps to regain a healthy, rosy complexion. It’s time to unleash the sparkling beauty in you!

Ever got pampered so much that you felt like a queen? You can do the same for your skin too and make yourself feel like Your Royal Highness. The premium Korean skincare label, The History of Whoo, recently made its entrance into our shores. Already a fan of its Gongjinhyang Mi Luxury Lipstick, I was intrigued to test out its legendary skincare line. Fortunately for me, I had the chance to immerse myself in complete luxury with The History of Whoo Bichup Soon Hwan Essence.
Whoo is derived from the Chinese character “后”, meaning empress or queen. The History of Whoo therefore encompasses both oriental traditions and the history of the empress’ secret beauty formula. The precious beauty skincare line is inspired from the traditional Korean royal culture, made modern with today’s science and technology, and is designed to convey modern cosmetic virtues while embodying regal beauty.
