Being in an urban jungle in this tropical climate, we often face a host of skin aggressors such as pollution and stress. We tend to pile up our skincare to counter the detrimental effects of these problems but sometimes, it’s all about going back to the basics.
Going back to the basics means focusing on simple yet effective solutions. Every month, I get a skin outbreak due to hormonal changes and what I like to do is to cut down the number of skincare products in my regime to not over-complicate things.
InstaNatural, a brand that focuses on clean and accessible skincare, has been helping me achieve hydrated and radiant skin during times like these. If you want to go natural, go InstaNatural (c/o iHerb)!

Surprise boxes are always fun because you never know what you’re going to get until you unbox! This year, the Lazada Surprise Box is here again, but this time, with over 99 brands participating! Last year, I’ve reviewed the Mamonde Surprise Box which contained an entire skincare regime for only SGD29!
What is a Surprise Box?
It’s a box of products retailing at SGD29 or SGD49 (WHAT? ONLY?!) but with products worth around SGD100! I’m so happy that innisfree is one of the brands because I’ve been a fan of their skincare products, especially their masks!
P.S. I’m revealing two products from the Lazada x innisfree Surprise Box in this post, so read on to discover!
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?!
In today’s city, we’re constantly being exposed to pollutants in the air, which can cause skin problems such as congestion and dullness etc. How do you maintain your skin’s clarity? For me, I mask a lot, and when I say a lot, I mean A LOT… like every day!
On days when I require exfoliation and thorough cleansing of my pores, I turn to exfoliators and clay masks. Lately I’ve been putting the Sand & Sky Flash Perfection Exfoliating Treatment and the Australian Pink Clay Porefining Face Mask to the test and I must say that ever since I’ve picked them up, I can’t stop!
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!
