Biologique Recherche Lotion P50T | Review

Biologique Recherche Lotion P50T 2

Biologique Recherche is one of those French brands that I have put on a high pedestal, making a mental promise to myself that one day I’ll be able to try most of their products.

Time to know what all the fuss is all about. Continue reading

SK-II Pitera Essence Set | Review

SK-II Pitera Essence set

When I went to Japan last December of last year, one of my goals was to get the infamous SK-II Facial Treatment Essence. There are a lot of positive claims surrounding this skincare product that I just can’t ignore. After all I was in the land of the rising sun.
