My Go To Online Korean Cosmetic Stores

As I do most of my beauty products shopping online I thought I’d share with you my go to online Korean cosmetics sites!

Depending on price and what’s available I use several sites. Select products I can only get at one store, others I can get at quite a few depending on price. Prices vary between the sites so I always check each time. As much as I’m loyal to my favourite products, new brands and products are always popping up so I always check to see what’s new!

How to Brush Your Teeth Correctly And Why I Don’t Like My New Retainers

Back in January I went to see an American dental hygienist Elena, recommended by a friend for an American style dental clean here in Barcelona. It was a life changing or life habit changing visit!

Basically I’ve been cleaning my teeth wrong for ions. I was having gum issues that started when I began wearing my new retainers. One of my old retainers, a ‘flipper’ retainer from years ago broke about a year ago when I started rewearing them after a years break. I paid the price skipping a year with tooth movement, hence new retainers. The replacements are like clear mouth guards. Flippers are more hygienic as I could eat with them in and silva could do it’s job. The way they’re designed they don’t trap nasties or bacteria that can cause plague Continue reading “How to Brush Your Teeth Correctly And Why I Don’t Like My New Retainers”

My First and Probably My Last Time Shopping At Lush

Being vegan you’d probably think that Lush and The Body Shop are 2 places I shop at for things beauty related. They’re cruelty free, campaign for countries to ban animal testing and promote the use of natural ingredients. Those aspects I like. The actual products I don’t like so much. Both brands contain some not so great ingredients. Both I feel are overpriced for what they are. Lush, I’ve never really liked even way back in London though I like their stance on not using synthetic to no preservatives, supporting local community from who they purchase ingredients and helping environmental organisations. Both however I feel are more hype than they are about the actual products. However I was bored last month and popped into Lush.

I ignored the alarm bells of hygienie, the overpowering perfume wafting everywhere and ended up being swayed by the bright colours and boredom. I was looking for a new face exfoliator and am always on the look out for non palm oil body soaps to try. The first display I saw as I walked in was Continue reading “My First and Probably My Last Time Shopping At Lush”
