Kiss your Skin with Skinkissed

The COVID-19 situation has put the world on hold, this is the time where taking care of yourself is even more vital. Wherever you can, do not forget to look after yourself. I am stranded back home due to the global flights cancellation situation, and as if the Universe has prepared, my small gift package from Skinkissed arrived in time when I finished up my travel sizes skincare. Like many, I am sceptical every time I try out a new skincare brand, because many of you may have experienced at some point, it can either make or break your skin. The millennial style gen-Z packing of black and bold pink and green fonts definitely do no...

Neat and Cozy, you find the library of products laid out without being too intimidating. The Speed Spa at the basement of the...

Behind the scene of Neal’s Yard Remedies

I love a factory visit. Always curious about what is going on behind the scene. Earlier on I had the pleasure to take a tour at the factory of the UK organic skincare brand Neal’s Yard Remedies in Gillingham, Dorest, UK . It was about 2 hours train ride away from London. Neal’s Yard Remedies is known for its organic skin care products and natural remedies. Passionately believing that beauty should be natural since the brand started over 30 years ago in Neal’s Yard, a hidden corner in Covent Garden, Central London.

Truly Yours

I’ve mentioned in earlier posts, that for my beauty regime (if there is even one) is extremely minimal, so as my daily cleansing regime. I had a bit of struggle with over-the-counter beauty products because my skin is quite sensitive, until SaraJane introduced me to her own brand Tru. I was a bit scared to try out a new brand, but for some reason, SaraJane’s passion triggered my curiosity of whether it truly works as it says. As said on the brand, The Tru Brand is what SaraJane Lynch genuinely believe, and hoping to convince women to believe that it is a brand with products that truly works. I had given my fair time of trial to...
