I wasn’t always a fan of wash off masks because I was lazy to clean my face afterwards. However, I like to think that I’ve seen the light, and maybe just gained a little more appreciation for the minutes I get to spend alone in the bathroom, because I’m now obsessed. I generally use gel or clay formulas, but I’ve been testing out these Mary & May Wash Off Packs recently.

A clean k-beauty brand, Mary & May uses high quality, EWG Green ingredients in all of their products. They believe that “different solutions are needed for different skin types and conditions,” and so their products all target a variety of skin concerns (in fact, they also boast a range of eight serums). Most of these products can also be mixed and matched according to your skin condition.

The brand carries three different wash off packs, each suited for different skin concerns. All of these are currently available at StyleKorean for USD$17 (on sale from USD$29), or even in a duo set with a matching serum. The variants include:

I’ve tried a lot of different masks in the past and (I have to admit), sometimes I can’t tell the difference between variants! Especially in immediate results. However, these Wash Off Packs really caught me by surprise – they have a similar texture, but the results are vastly different. You can tell that Mary & May formulated these with different skin types in mind and at least one of these has become a fast favourite.

Brand Spotlight: Amuse, the Vegan K-Beauty Brand

If you’re a fan of Red Velvet (the kpop group), then you have definitely heard of Amuse before – because their brand model is Seulgi! Based in Seoul, they’re a fairly new beauty brand that’s all about clean, vegan formulas (certified by Eye Vegan), sustainability, and well as unique colours that bring happiness and good vibes.

I was originally introduced to Amuse through StyleKorean‘s recommendation, as they’ve started to stock a huge range of their products. After that, I took my time painstakingly deciding what I wanted to try, because I was essentially keen on everything.. but I think I made some great choices!

Read on to see some of the different formulations by Amuse, including their Eye Vegan Sheer Palette, Blush Kit and Dew Velvet Lip Tint. I also have a review of their cushions coming soon, but I wanted to keep those separate. Check out StyleKorean to shop their entire rane but before you do, let’s get into this post.

New Release: The Truth about Sulphates (feat The Ordinary’s New Hair Care Range)

The Ordinary Haircare - Sulphate 4% Cleanser for Body and Hair, Behentrimonium Chloride 2% Conditioner and Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA for Scalp

This product was sent to me for review purposes. Please note that affiliate links are used.

Many years ago I was super fixated on making sure that my shampoo was ‘SLS Free’, as I had heard that sulphates were overly drying and stripping too much moisture. I hadn’t given it a second thought since then, so I was really surprised when The Ordinary not only launched a shampoo with sulphates, but also led with that as the main ingredient! 🤯

The Ordinary believes that removing sulphates is simply a trend and, as always, their brand is about evidence-based formulations, not just following the crowd. Rather than removing sulphates, they researched them and broke the ingredient down to its essential levels, giving all the cleansing benefits of the ingredient, as well as further long-term benefits.

Aside from this, their new haircare release focuses on simple, lightweight formulas that give both instant and long term results. The range includes the Sulphate 4% Cleanser for Hair & Body, Behentrimonium Chloride 2% Conditioner and the Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA for Scalp – all of which is now available on their website!

Read on if you’re curious to find out more about sulphates, as well as this new range of The Ordinary haircare!

Review: Daily Moisture Cream (Vegreen)

Vegreen Daily Moisture Cream Kbeauty Review

This is a sponsored (paid) post. Please note that referral links or codes may be used.

If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ll know that I’m pretty big on moisturising. However, I do have a confession to make – my skin hasn’t been in the best condition in the past couple of years! Whether it’s due to stress or age, I’ve become increasingly aware of my uneven skin tone and dehydration. Sometimes, it’s so severe that essences actually sting to use. I tried different things, but I think I’ve actually discovered my simple solution…

Moisturising. A lot of it.

It sounds ridiculous, but I’ve been obsessed with face creams and found that being more dedicated to my AM routine has really improved my complexion. One product that I found myself reaching for a lot is the 730 Daily Moisture Cream by Vegreen.

For those who are unfamiliar with them, Vegreen is an indie k-beauty skincare brand. Their products are vegan and they are all about using safe, renewable ingredients, as well as sustainable packaging. The brand currently carries four products: the Fragrance-Free Cica Serum, Fragrance-Free Nature Mucin Serum (a non-snail formula), Alcohol-Free Nature Mucin Toner and my top favourite 730 Daily Moisture Cream – which is available on the Vegreen website for USD$15.60 (currently on sale from USD$18.30).
