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:

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

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!

The wrong way to clean a cats ears 

I recently welcomed a new member to the family! Meet whiskers the munchkin!

However, he was less than 3 months old when I started to notice that whiskers was scratching his ears really often but I didn’t think too much of it. Until I saw chunks of fur around my home. My heart sank! He has been scratching so much that his fur started to come off. My poor little kitten is going to have bald patches ?! And upon checking the insides of his ears, it was filled with so much brown gunk!

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.

Neo Cosmo Queen 4 Tone

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

Stay in a Lava Cave with Private Cave Pool in Oia, Santorini | Greece | 2017 | Review |

Stay in a Lava Cave with Private Cave Pool in Oia, Santorini | Greece | 2017 | Review |

 

It took me some time to finally choose a hotel because, although quite a few hotels have really nice infinity pools, these are usually public pools. Also, most of the private pools end up being a Jacuzzi tub instead of an actual pool. After searching through numerous hotels, we finally found an accommodation that had a private pool. And what’s more, the private pool was a CAVE POOL.

I loved the lava cave so much that I figured I just had to have a blog post solely for the lava cave.

If you’re Asian and have not heard of Descendants of the Sun, then, well, you CANT BE ASIAN. Descendants of the Sun is the Korean drama that took over Asia by storm in 2016. It received immense popularity both locally as well as internationally, where it has been sold to 32 countries and translated into 32 different languages.

The drama’s success helped boost Korea’s economy, contributing in a rise of tourists, overseas sales of products featured in the drama; and more investment in Korean entertainment companies by Chinese companies seeking partnerships. Descendants of the Sun has been reported to have earned 3 billion won from product placement advertisements (PPL) and 10 billion won from sales of related sound tracks and video-on-demand service. The “Two Tone Lip Bar” lipstick that Song Hye-Kyo wore in a scene on the show has broken sales records for Aritaum in South Korea.

Of the numerous filming locations around different parts of Greece, the shipwreck cove (aka Navagio Beach) in Zakynthos is the most outstanding one, and for a reason too. On top of being the star location of Descendants of the Sun, the shipwreck cove is actually also the most famous and most photographed beach in Greece!
