And Then, There Was None

I think it’s that time of year again. I usually use up more skincare around this time, then I’d replenish and most will be gone 6 months or a year later. So, don’t be surprised to see lots of skincare here. I just want to list down some things I used up, because I’m keeping track of what I have consumed, what I liked and what I didn’t.

I Want, But Can’t, So I Shan’t

Modbox Review: Sampling Within Your Control And Budget

If you’ve been following this blog and reading diligently (thank you!), you’d already know that I am not keen on beauty boxes. I know what I want, and I like to have control of what I’ll be getting in my boxes. I hate that surprises become disappointments and it’s just an overwhelming feeling that I’ve wasted my money on a bunch of crappy samples I never use. Recently, I was approached by Modbox to try out their Intro Kit for bloggers, and I was a skeptic. I told Jess (co-founder of Modbox) as much, that I might not be kind in my review, and she was still keen to know what I think.
