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

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

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).

Before you head over to the Vegreen website, read on for my detailed review!

Review: Magic Kitten & Ice Cream Masks from I Dew Care

I Dew Care Mini Scoops Masks Kbeauty Review

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

As someone who’s been deeply consumed in the beauty community for quite a few years now, I’ve seen a lot of brands make a big splash on socials. One of these is I Dew Care, Memebox’s in-house skincare brand thats been super well-known for their playful, fun packaging concepts and unique formulas. I’d actually had my eye on them for a long time but could only look from a distance as they weren’t available in Australia yet… but it seems that StyleKorean has once again answered my call!

Shipping almost worldwide, a wide range of I Dew Care products are now available on StyleKorean. They are a cruelty-free brand and, whilst I’m not sure if it’s their entire range, these that I’m trying are also vegan, gluten free and comes in FSC packaging – so they’re doing all the good things.

I got my hands on the Disco Kitten and Space Kitten masks, as well as their Mini Scoops pack (containing three mini masks). Head over to the StyleKorean website to check out the range but otherwise, let’s chat about what these are!

Shopping Guide: New Canmake Products available at W Cosmetics

W Cosmetics Canmake New Releases Feature

This product was sent to me for review purposes.

If you’re Australian and a fan of Japanese Beauty, then you would be all too familiar with how difficult it is to get these products without going through personal shoppers, foreign websites and making to make the trip to Japan yourself! Thankfully though, a lot of these wishes were answered with W Cosmetics. I’ve worked with them a few times already and, whilst they have Korean products too, I’m always especially impressed with their J-beauty product range.

They recently sent over a selection of new releases from Canmake which I’ve posted about on Instagram, but I couldn’t help but make this post as well – just in case there’s someone out there who also have no idea where to buy these! Read on to see what I got, as well as links to buy them straight from W Cosmetics. They have stores in Australia and also free shipping for orders over AUD$99.

When it comes to sustainable fashion, bohemian dresses or minimalist styles often come to mind. However, more people are now becoming aware of fast fashion’s impact, leading to a growing demand for ethical options that will cater to a wider audience.

Enter Mikumo Apparel, a slow fashion label by Asian-American illustrator, Tina (also known as Bon). Drawing inspiration from Korean and Japanese fashion styles, as well as hints of the dark/light academia aesthetics, she aims to introduce a unique approach to sustainable style. Find out more about her and the beautiful launch collection below!

Who is Tina?

With a background in oil painting, and a job in nonprofit management, Tina is a freelance illustrator in her spare time. In March 2020, at the beginning of the pandemic, she started her first instagram account, @bonbon_illustrator, as an attempt to reclaim her creativity and make art for herself again, rather than for others.  Since then, ‘Bonbon’ has amassed a significant social media following of 28.1k and counting.
