"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 😜
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!
Cushion foundations... Still not very well known outside Asia, but I definitely believe they really deserve more attention! So today, let's take a closer look at what exactly a cushion foundation is, why (in all objectivity) the best of them are the Korean ones, who can use them (not only Korean peoples!), how to choose them and the best way to use them! I will tell you everything and I will also show you my small (lol) collection in today's post!
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!
An essence based on fermented ingredients, with honey and propolis... How was I supposed to resist it? ;) Here is my review of the Quad Active Boosting Essence from the Korean skincare brand By Wishtrend!
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 😉
According to some, copper peptides are one of the most effective anti-aging ingredients available on the market! However, they remain relatively unknown to the public at large and rarely used by cosmetic brands… Today, let's discuss copper peptides, shall we?
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!
Well, my friends, it looks like everything can happen at the moment, apparently! I've finally decided to share my morning skincare routine (and maybe I'll even write a second article with my evening routine, let's go crazy!). Let me show you the skincare products I'm using at the moment!
I mentioned it last year, Mugwort (Artemisia) has become an inevitable ingredient in South Korean cosmetics! There are countless "100% Artemisia" essences now on the shelves of the K-Beauty shops! Today, I want to introduce you to one of the most popular, the Mugwort Essence from I'm From.
Now that the theory about retinol is out of the way, let's move on to the practical side of things, shall we? In this article, I'll tell you more about my experience with retinoids and I'll also share some tips that have helped me to optimize their usage in my routine without messing up my skin!
The Josh Rosebrook Hydrating Accelerator mist is a true cult favorite product for natural skincare enthusiasts! I was really looking forward to try it, but I must admit that it left me unconvinced… I’ll explain why in my review!
Hyaluronic acid isn't the only hydration super-hero! To deeply hydrate and repair the skin, Beta-glucan is also super effective! This is actually the main claim of the Beta-Glucan Power Moisture Serum from the Korean brand Iunik…
