Review: Sioris My First Essener

September 12, 2021

"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 😜

Review: elmt Skin Activating Solution essence

July 25, 2021

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 will tell you everything and I will also show you my small (lol) collection in today's post!

Review: Amorepacific Vintage Single Extract Essence

March 20, 2021

This review is long overdue, I know! I tried this essence for the first time almost 4 years ago, so it's not really a genuine discovery anymore. I've even repurchased it several times since then. It's quite a unique product, with its own unique story and I think I owed it a dedicated article. So here is my review of the Vintage Single Extract Essence from the Korean premium skincare brand Amorepacific!

Review: IOPE Bio Essence Intensive Conditioning

November 8, 2020

The IOPE Bio Essence Intensive Conditioning is not a newcomer in the world of Korean essences. It's even an old-school "First Essence", and well, it's been a while since we've talked about one of these, right? If you talk K-Beauty fluently, you're no longer a stranger to this concept, I guess! If you don't, stay right here, I'll be your interpreter 😉

My best of skincare from the French pharmacie

May 10, 2020

If you're a regular BTY ALY reader, you already know that I have a hard time making choices. That's why I never do "favorites" posts. And I already have a feeling that this article will look more like a very long products list than a curated selection of my favourite French 'pharmacie' beauty products. Oh well, you've been warned!
