Review: It’s Skin – Babyface BB cream moisture

I’m back from the dead! Or in this case, self-imposed academic hibernation. The last month and a half has been intense, I had to submit my final honours thesis and prepare for my thesis defense which, is actually coming up in a week! I had been planning to do this review for a while now but since university happened and messed up my plans it’s here! Although late.
I had been holding off purchasing any Babyface products from It’s skin but since this was part of my birthday haul (and it was just so cheap) I just decided to give it a shot since the whole product range was just so stupidly cute.
Honestly, I’m not loving these products other than for their cute factor. Read on for a full accounting of its pit-falls!

*Review: Lightning rabbit – Apple lightning connector

I know. I’m running a beauty blog so why the heck am I reviewing charging cables?! Well for one, I have many devices all requiring charging cables and for another how could I resist trying these cables when Aleksey (founder of Latitude 28 design) contacted me about them? These cables were (obviously) sent to me for consideration but it will not affect any opinions expressed on this blog!

Review: The Face Shop – seed fermentation cleansing oil balm

This was the most requested review from my last haul post so here it is! A little bit delayed but here nonetheless.
It has become part of my makeup removal routine and dare I say it? Holy-Grail material! BEWARE: The following review is very, very intensely descriptive – involving GRITS and Sebaceous filaments. If you’re not already disgusted, please by all means, read on to find out why this is HG.

Review: Antipodes Divine face oil & Vanilla pod cream

A while ago Priceline had a 40% off all skincare sale on and based on a friend’s recommendation, I picked this Antipodes mini set to try out their products. Best thing was it had only cost me $12! It is a limited edition set but there seemed to be a lot of stock when I was there last (a week ago?) and they are still selling these minis at Priceline. Antipodes is a New Zealand brand but I believe they are available world wide at any good department store. Their main selling point seems to be that they use organic products and that their products have been scientifically tested. Even though they did get an independent test done with fibroblast cells, I honestly would take ‘scientifically tested’ with a grain of salt. I mean applying the product to live cells and applying it to your face is very different.
But anyway, this isn’t a scientific blog! It’s a beauty/lifestyle blog, so on to more interesting things!

Review: Hada Labo tamagohada AHA+BHA daily face wash

Wow – so sorry about the radio silence, it’s been crazily busy at Uni recently so I’ve been neglecting the blog *Sobs*. I’ve actually been meaning to do this review for about a month now and just managed to finally get it done!
Many of you may (or may not) be familiar with the Hada Labo brand. It’s a Japanese brand that focuses on simplicity and affordability (big props to the affordability point!) I had actually purchased a bottle of this cleanser while on a short trip to Taiwan (I had run out of my cleanser and didn’t have enough time to pack so I traveled all the way to Taiwan with no face wash). I mainly wanted to try it out because I had heard nothing but good things about this brand while researching Asian skin care brands and plus it said “AHA+BHA” – what more could I ask for?!
Anyway, less rambling and more reviewing!

*Review: Little Bird Organic Paw Paw

*These products were sent to me for my consideration but it does not affect
my opinions expressed on this blog.

Wow! An actual review post this time! Today I bring you a review of an organic Paw Paw from the brand Little Bird. Honestly, I’m not a huge fan of Paw Paw but when I was contacted about these products I thought, why not? I’ve never really given Paw Paw products the time of day and this was a good opportunity to give it a shot.
Most Paw Paw balms contain some kind of petrochemical (ie: Petroleum jelly) but these ones are devoid of the use of petrochemicals. I can’t comment much about the “organic” claims of this product because 1) I don’t know enough and 2) even if I did know enough I’m still hesitant to spew out potentially wrong information!
On to more interesting things! The Review:
