, an authentic beauty magazine with personality and looks
I can see it when I look at my stats on this website, anti-aging devices fascinate you as much as me (my two articles on the topic are in my top 10 most read articles 😆). I started testing a couple of them a few years ago, first with an LED mask, and then I continued with a facial toning device using an electric micro-current, the Trinity from NuFACE. This is the same technique that we're going to focus on today with my test of the micro and nano-current based anti-aging device, the ZIIP OX!
Did you see, there was another star/influencer/celebrity beauty brand launched today…
I wrote this sentence last week; I know it's still relevant this week too! Every time I see a new launch (every other day, that is), I can't help but wonder if all these celebrity brands will still be around in 10 years? That's what I'll talk about in this week's Memo!
I know, I know, I rarely do cleanser reviews on here. I'll admit it, they are not the most fascinating category of products for me. But when I find one cleansing product that does the job, and that is also great to use, I feel like I have to dedicate a review to it! So today, let me introduce you to the super delicious Aqua Bomb Makeup Removing Cleansing Balm from the Korean skincare brand Belif…
Dr.G R.E.D. Blemish Clear Soothing Cream is a true phenomenon in South Korea. Already a bestseller for several years, when Covid hit and especially when the obligation to wear a mask became commonplace, this soothing treatment cream has become Korea's favorite SOS cream! I had to try it to see for myself if it lived up to its reputation :)
"Wait, what? There's a review of a certified organic product on BTY ALY? Ah phew, it's Korean, I thought you were unwell!" Admit it, if you recognized the My First Essener essence/toner from the skincare brand Sioris, that's what you thought! Well yes, this week I am indeed reviewing an organic product, and even crazier, I have to admit I like it a lot 😜
This is the story of a serum I tried a few years ago and wasn't blown away with at the time. It could have ended there. But my skin having changed quite a bit in the last few years, I decided to give it another try... And I'm so glad I did! The NIOD Survival 0 antioxidant serum is an excellent surprise on my end-of-summer dehydrated and sensitized skin. Let me tell you all about it!
I'm so pumped to tell you about the product of today's review! It's a cult product in Asia, and its story is absolutely fascinating, especially if you're like me, a true cosmetic nerd... Let me introduce you to the most popular eye cream in Asia, the AHC Youth Lasting Real Eye Cream For Face, 9th version!
You often blame me for making you spend too much money and for tempting you too much with my reviews! Well, for once, I'm going to tell you about a product that I found "meh-OK", meaning not bad but not incredible either. Yeah, I know, they're not the most exciting reviews to read (or to write for that matter 😅) but I guess, sometimes we need some! Today, I want to introduce you to the Skin Activating Solution essence from the new Korean skincare brand elmt!
I never thought I'd mention this product here. For years, I've been telling the world that the Laneige Cica Sleeping Mask is my all-time favorite (spoiler alert: it still is) and that the classic version, aka the Water Sleeping Mask, isn't for me. But that was without considering the marketing genius of Amorepacific (the group Laneige is part of), who are not afraid to reformulate their best-selling products regularly with the latest advancements in technology! A moisturizing sleeping mask with probiotics from green tea, you said? Give it to me! 😍😍😍
