I wasn’t going to take part in the grand Japanese beauty versus Korean beauty debacle of 2018, because how much more can you beat this very dead horse?
To any thinking person with even the most basic reading and comprehension skills, it’s obvious that the whole thing started as a PR stunt to promote some non-name quasi-Japanese brand. Yet, K-beauty cheerleaders jumped on the cause with the zeal
Do I still remember how to use this strange thing called a blog?
I hope so!
There is a reason why I don't really like doing sponsored reviews. Actually, there are many reasons.
One, that usually I don't like the products I receive. I always have high hopes and well, high hopes is where it usually ends.
Two, if I do like the product and say so, then I'm usually accused of becoming a
IMPORTANT:This is NOT a sponsored post. I paid for my visit to The Burj Club.I also asked and got permission to take photos and write about my experience.
When I was planning my vacation and it turned out that my flights qualified for Dubai Connect, I jumped for joy and started to make a list of all the things I wanted to do during my 22 hours in the United Arab Emirates.
Back in March Miss Y went to Saitama for a work conference and apparently she had enough time to visit an esthe salon (a.k.a. a spa) to get a facial, a full body treatment and gods only know what else.
She brought some skincare with her. A brand I've never heard of before. Evermere.
She let me try a few things (a gel cream and a gel face pack) and I liked them enough to fire up the innernets to
Amazon's Prime Day sucks. It's all hype and no real deals. Yeah, it's better now than it used to be, that's for sure. I still remember one of the first prime day events and a lightning deal for a five gallon bucket of personal lube, or something like that.
I'm not sure how Amazon did this year in other countries, but from what I'm hearing on the innertubes, it was less than inspiring in the US,
Last year, sometime around October, I took a look at MŪN (pronounced "moon"), and thought it would be nice to try it.
Then, I guess it was in November, I actually commented somewhere that I was thinking of getting the MŪN Anarose toner, because I love roses. And up until then, all rose products I had tried were, well... not very rosy.
A few days later I had an email from MŪN waiting for me in my
Don't scream at me and don't tell me in the comments that I can't spell. Though that is true, too. I can't.
But this thing, up there in the title, that's how it is spelled on the box.
The brand is called Im;BEAUTY, and the product we are going to talk about today is Cloud 9 Whitening Anti-Aging Cream.
We haven't even started yet and things are already getting complicated.
You see, there are
Biore part 1 is here.
When someone proudly tells you that they are using a Japanese sunblock, chances are they mean Biore. And when they say they are using Biore, chances are they mean the one in the blue tube. Which is not the Biore we are going to talk about today.
In the previous Biore episode I've already gave you my very important thoughts on all three Biore milks (they are "meh" and "get
She was never my favorite Disney princess. In fact, if anything, I found her to be annoying as all hell. Maybe because I always felt closer to the evil stepsisters. I mean, I could understand them. I wasn't pretty, I wasn't particularly smart either and I knew full well there would never be a rich and handsome prince charming waiting for me at the end of the rainbow.
So, when a
I bet you never thought you'd see such an entry on this blog. Don't worry, neither did I.
But since summer is almost upon us, it means the inevitable sunscreen questions keep piling up in my mailbox. And it seems that to nearly all Western fans of Asian beauty products, "sunscreen" is synonymous with "Biore".
