My 10 step korean skincare routine (free of: parabens, phenoxyethanol, silicones, sulfates, alcohol, mineral oil) 2017

If you have read my previous article, you will know that I did a massive disposal of my skincare when I found out that they contained harsh ingredients that are not so good for our skin like; parabens, sulfates, alcohol, mineral oil, phenoxyethanol and silicones.

My previous 2016 post here:

I am so glad that us consumers are becoming more and more savvy about the skincare products that we purchase these days and we are starting to look into product ingredients carefully before purchasing.

I have only been using clean products that are free of parabens, phenoxyethanol, mineral oils, alcohol, silicones (really hard to avoid in moisturisers), sulfates, and etc. I am happy to say that my skin is really stable now vs its previous erratic self. Although I might get the occasional pimple from having too much chocolate, it has never been better in my life!

Searching for products that are free of the list of ingredients above hasn’t been easy. Products that label themselves as ‘paraben free’ may sometimes still contain phenoxyethanol. And it is super hard to find moisturisers that do not contain silicones.

After much searching, here is my 2nd compiled multi step Korean skincare routine!

Beauty Review: Ezn Pudding Ammonia Free hair color in Smokey Ash Beige 

Beauty Review: Ezn Pudding Ammonia Free hair color in Smokey Ash Beige 

Recently, my brown hair color has faded and turned very yellow. I wanted to tone the yellow down to something more ash, so I started the search for an ash hair dye.  I did some research online, and i chanced upon the Ezn Shaking Pudding Hair Color. On a side note, if one were to browse for hair dyes in a physical shop, I think they would have totally walked past the Ezn pudding hair color because well, the box looks more like jelly than hair dye!

They have so many different shades of ash to choose from, and all of them are so appealing, so much that I wanted to buy them all! On top of that, a bigger factor in my decision to pick this Pudding Hair Color is because it is AMMONIA FREE! Gorgeous ash color + Ammonia free? I was sold! (Maybe also the fact that it is a korean hair dye made me more bias towards it :P)

Beauty review: Neo Cosmo Queen 4 tone Contact lens in Honey Brown & Mystery Grey 

I’m always on the hunt for new contact lenses (not because I dont like the previous lenses but) because I’m always itching to try new designs with better and improved specs. I personally like to purchase 6m or 3m disposable contact lenses cause I don’t need to keep purchasing lenses that frequently and also cause they are cheaper when divided out per month.

So I recently purchased Neo Cosmo 4 tone lens in both grey and brown, and here are the swatches

Beauty review: PINK CONTACT LENS! RevoColour Romantic in Peach Pink

So… I randomly decided to try out pink contact lens because I was getting bored of the typical natural shades of grey, hazel and brown. I chose RevoColour Romantic because their pink lens had more than just pink, it graduates to a hazel shade that I feel will make my natural brown iris blend in better with the pink lens.

UPDATE: My 2017 list is here!

My 10 step korean skincare routine (free of: parabens, phenoxyethanol, silicones, sulfates, alcohol, mineral oil) 2017

Just last year, I became more aware of the types of ingredients that go into beauty products and started to read product labels.I was so shocked that almost all the drugstore products contained many harmful ingredients.

Ever since that happened, I threw away quite a fair bit of skincare and beauty products that contain harmful ingredients. It really wasn’t easy, to see all my $$$ thrown into the bin. But I can say that I do not regret it at all, my skin has improved tremendously since then.

Since then, I’ve repurchased only clean products and by clean I mean products that are free of parabens, phenoxyethanol, mineral oils, alcohol, silicones (really hard to avoid in moisturisers), sulfates, and etc.

Beauty review: 6D Nano Eyebrow embroidery at Sunshine Brow Studio

Beauty review: 6D Nano Eyebrow embroidery at Sunshine Brow Studio

For those of you that may have known, I did eyebrow embroidery for the very first time in march 2015. Original post on my dayre here for reference

Brow embroidery is a semi permanent eyebrow tattoo that lasts for about 1-2 years.

 

What’s new?
Last year, i did 5d Nano embriodery, but this year, they have upgraded to 6D Nano embroidery from 5D Nano embroidery. They are both done via a method called microblading. So what’s the difference? The difference is in the type of blade used. 6D has finer blades which gives the fine hair like effect and thus the brows will look more natural.

What’s also new is that since then, my beautician has opened her own shop at marine parade called Sunshine Brow Studio.
