To be honest, I had sincerely thought that this post was already made! Only, I just realised that the photos were sitting in my drafts and I’ve been testing these products and thinking up the review before even doing the haul post. Aren’t I silly? Anyway, today is just one of those days – it’s rainy here in Sydney, work is rather slow and not very much is happening. As a pick me up, I figured that it would be best to do this post and look at all these lovely things that KollectionK had sent me to review! Most of these are actually things that I chose myself so I’ll talk about why I was interested in them too.
If you’re interested in checking out KollectionK, click the link above. Although their prices are a little higher than the other stores I’ve visited, they also have one of the best designed and most user friendly stores that I have seen for kbeauty.
While I was shopping on their site, I liked to go through everything and make a wish list, which I would then go through again. If there are some items on your wishlist that are out of stock, then don’t worry about that either! KollectionK restocks very often and will even send you an email to let you know. Overall, I really love their website and think their service is good too!
I am obsessed with Disney – I think that is a fact that everyone should be aware of. Whenever there is a Disney collaboration, my head pokes in in interest… which is exactly what happened here. Looking at the different products on Alphabeauty’s website, I was drawn towards all of the Alice in Wonderland collaborations that seemed to be happening over in Japan. K-Palette’s 1 Day Tattoo came recommended to me by Sophia, so I was pretty excited to test that out.
I am generally very loyal to my Clio Kill Black, which is the first and most effective liquid liner that I’ve learnt to use on a daily basis. Aside from that, I’m very much a gel liner type of girl because I like to have as much control over my liner as possible and a very deep black. This one, however, comes really close to the Clio!
If you’re interested in checking this out, go to Alphabeauty’s website. Otherwise, let’s go!
Everyone has been obsessed with double cleansing and, admittedly, I’m pretty late on the bandwagon but I’m here now! Today, I’ll be reviewing a product that was very kindly sent me to be Beautynetkorea, who were the ones who actually suggested this to me. This is the O-Le-Mong sherbet cleanser by Etude House, which is scented with three different fruits – orange, lemon and grapefruit! The packaging is pretty cute, in my opinion, though the bright yellow a little different from Etude House’ usual.
The first time that this product was sent to me, the product had unfortunately leaked and ruined the beauty of the packaging, s oBeautynetkorea were sweet enough to send me another one (and even extra bubble wrapped it to make sure it wouldn’t happen again). If you’re interested in checking out this product – or all the other things they carry – click on the links. Otherwise, onto the review!
As Kbeauty fans, I think that it’s very (very) easy for us to accidentally neglect all of the other products that are out there for us – even those that are still within the Asian beauty industry! The fact is that the Korean industry is huge, with many low-end, high-end, mainstream and even indie brands that are constantly putting out new products, developing new formulas and just really demanding our attention. However, some people might have noticed that I had paid a little attention recently to Japanese cosmetics and skincare. Admittedly, I don’t have much knowledge or experience in their industry (and could hardly name even ten brands) but I have heard some great things about them!
For this reason, I am so happy that I have been sent some pretty interesting things by Alpha Beauty to review! All of these brands are completely new to be and, while I had heard of their names before, I am definitely going in with zero subjectivity no preconcieved expectations.
I’ll be giving everyone a brief overview of the products that I have received (and have already started testing). If you are interested in Japanese cosmetics or skincare, check out Alpha Beauty!
Remember that super cute, ridiculous bottle of lotion that I reviewed before? The one that was sent to me by JapanSkin? Well, what I didn’t mention in that previous post (or perhaps I did and I had simply forgotten) is that it isn’t the only thing they had sent me! Also by the Japanese boutique brand Kamiya, I also received one of their hand creams and green tea blotting paper to test as well and I was very happy with them. Although the hand cream was nothing spectacular (and I’m not a frequent user of it anyway), I absolutely loved the blotting paper. It was very absorbent, smelled really good and the packaging was simply innovative. It’s very clear to see that Kamiya had experience with paper because they’re just very good at it!
If you’re interested in anything that I’ve shown here, or the Kamiya Silk Lotion that I reviewed earlier, then just go to JapanSkin. These are not affiliate links and, whilst I have been sent these products to review, I always give my honest opinion (even if they’re not completely positive)!
Please note that these products have been sent to me for review and the links are affiliate links. However, the review is purely my own honest opinions and are a reflection of the products, not the service.
Before this review, I had never heard of Skin18 before. I found them on Instagram though and noticed that they have a blogger program which focuses less on promoting their store and more about introducing and testing out new beauty products from lesser known brands. I thought this was a great opportunity so I was quickly on board. Soon enough, I had been sent the above pictures package of four different masks to review for you guys!
I took my time testing enough one, making sure to use them on days when my skin wasn’t doing so great (I wanted to see what differences the masks could make and, frankly, considering the weather, it isn’t so hard to catch me on a bad skin day) and making sure that I weren’t using them back to back. Some of these products I loved, some I wasn’t so sure about so – enough of me talking – let’s go!
It’s been a comparatively slow sort of week from me, and I found that I’m falling a little behind on my reviews! I have so many products I’ve recently been testing that I’ve wanted to discuss, but spending a lot of time at work and balancing some other projects mean that I’ve needed to take some nights to myself. No worries though because I’m back.
Today, I’ll be showing you one of the products that was sent to me by JapanSkin to review. I found them through Instagram and was really interested in the products they carried because – surprise, surprise – I’ve never actually used Japanese skincare products before. However, I’ve been told that they’re really great.
They’re very responsive and very professional at JapanSkin, which I really enjoyed. I also love that, by looking at their Instagram feed, I can tell that they are not just businessmen but actually use and understand the products that they are selling. I would definitely recommend them to friends (and you readers!)
I’m finally here to tell everyone about Skin Editor! I’ve been sitting on this review for a while because I took my time really testing out all of these products – and they have been doing me well.
Skin Editoris a fairly new brand, sitting as a home care brand under Tremix, founded by the company Morvanic. Their products (for Tremix) are usually only supplied to dermatologists and skin clinics for post procedural aid, so their focus is on the quality of the product rather than marketability.
Unlike in South Korea where it is fairly common to see dermatologists or skin specialists for up keeping and maintenance, I find that this is much less common in Australia. In fact, the only time I have ever spoken to a dermatologist was when I was younger and broke out in full body rashes from an allergic reaction. Our lifestyle seems to state that specialists, and therefore special treatments, are to be considered when the problem as arisen – that is, you want to fix something that has already happened.
For a lifestyle like that, I think Skin Editor‘s products would be perfect (and is the reason I approached them to begin with – aside from the fact that I really love their bold coloured branding). They promise effective and nourishing products that are safe for sensitive skin and daily use.

Before I start this post, a super thank you to BB Cosmetic who had sent this to me for review. They’ve been so great with me and sent me both the Pack to Foam and the Cushion to review after I told them that I was very interested in this line by 3CE. If you want to check them out, you can also click the link below.

And now it’s onto the review!
I’m going to be writing about the White Milk Pack to Foam from 3CE, which is part of a collection that I’d been asked about previously. Their brand sits under Stylenanda and is, essentially, a bit of a trend brand. They have exceptional packaging and conceptualisation which is targeted to a younger audience, teens or up to the very early twenties I would say.
I’m back with another review, everyone! This is going to be a review on a set of three serums that I was sent by Roseroseshop – also the owner behind this indie brand. Today, we’re going to be looking at Neulii, their self established skincare line. RRS is an online store that specialised in Korean Skincare and Make-up so it’s not a big leap for them to move into developing their own line. From my conversation with their Marketing Manager, I am also very confident that they know what they’re doing.
I had no hesitation in trying their products, and I’m glad that I did.
Neulii’s name stems from the Korean characters of Neul + i, meaning ‘Always’ in Korean – 늘이(렇게) for those who are interested. Their goal is to merge both quality and affordability, resulting in what can be considered a ‘no frills’ version of Korean skincare.
