5 Asian Beauty Products That Are Pure Geniuses ♡


I was passed down a Shiseido eyelash curler from my mom when I first started wearing makeup and I used the same exact eyelash curler religiously every single day for nearly 5 years before it finally gave in and broke (my mom had the curler for at least another 5-10 years before she passed it down to me! :O) Apart from being EXTREMELY sturdy, this eyelash curler always works amazingly and curls my lashes exactly how I want it to :) After the old Shiseido eyelash curler broke I bought a new one from SASA in Hong Kong (it only costs £6 here whereas it costs £19 in the UK!!) and I am planning to use this curler for at least another 10 years :P

This mascara remover comes in a mascara packaging and you apply this like how you would apply a normal mascara. This mascara remover was introduced to the market when people using the waterproof Heroine Make mascaras started complaining that their mascaras are impossible to take off. What you do with this mascara remover is that you simply apply this to your lashes and wait for 1 to 2 minutes before wiping your mascara away with a tissue or a cotton pad and this makes mascara removal (waterproof or not) a complete dream! 

I first came across L'Herboflore while I was on a trip to Taipei a couple years ago and since then every time I travel back to Taiwan (which is about once a year) I buy at least 50 of these paper face masks so I can use them throughout the year! I am absolutely obsessed with these face masks and I feel that no other Asian face mask compare to these, even though I have tried nearly every popular Korean/ Asian face mask brand out there. I feel that these masks sit on my face so much more comfortably than other masks I have tried and they also do not give off the irritating sensations that other masks tend to give me :) These also moisturise and brighten my skin like crazy and I can usually still feel the immediate effects of the mask when I wake up from my sleep 8 hours after I have applied the mask :D My favourite one out of all the L'Herboflore facial masks has to be the Hyaluronic Acid Biocellulose mask which I use whenever I have a special event coming up :) 

This hair serum has been made famous by Cheon Song-yi from the Korean TV show 'You Who Came from the Stars' but I truly think that this is a great beauty product and this has worked wonders for my hair :) I was gifted this hair serum by one of my relatives after her trip to Korea. All my cousins have previously raved about this hair serum so I was super excited to try it and to see whether it would make a difference to my hair :) I apply this serum to the roots of my hair after I have let my hair air dried to the point that it is damp but not dripping wet after my shower. I can tell that this product, which has argan oil, royal jelly, and rose water in it, makes a huge difference to my hair and have left the ends of my hair feeling extremely soft and shiny ♡ 

I have raved about this cleansing oil in one of my previous posts but have yet to do a more detailed review on it so here you go! I was first introduced to this product a couple months ago by my friend Melissa and this is the product that I have left my Bioderma for! I find that this cleansing oil works extremely well at removing all the makeup from my face (including mascara and eyeliner) without me having to rub my eyes like crazy with a cotton pad (like how I used to do with my Bioderma) which usually resulted in a lash or two falling off. This cleansing oil has a slight olive oil scent to it and although the thought of removing your makeup with an oil might scare a lot of people, especially if you have oily/ acne-prone skin, this product does nothing but leave my skin feeling squeaky clean and soft after I have removed my makeup :) Some people also find that this product works well as an all-in-one makeup remover, face cleanser AND moisturiser! I personally use this product purely as a makeup remover but on those days where I am too lazy to apply a moisturiser after I cleansed my face, this product has done well in keeping my skin moisturised for the most part :)

  9. I really need to buy the full size of the DHC Oil as I have a sample size at the moment, and I really like it but the pump would be amazing as my sample bottle doesn't have one xx
