Hi Lovelies! Greetings from Hong Kong! Yes – I’m back to homeland for 2 weeks!

If you have read the post for my Very Inspiring Blogger Award, you might know that I’m born and bred in Hong Kong. Having lived in England for the past 7 years, naturally, I’m a frequent flyer. There is nothing worse than the excruciating discomfort of a long-haul fight (12 hours from London to HK) #firstworldproblems. The air inside the cabin is so dry that I used to sprout new spots every time I fly.

Hello Lovelies, welcome to my first ever monthly favourites post! This month I have stumbled upon quite a few little gems that have really stood out to me. Some of which you might already be familiar with, and some I’ve only started using recently (future review candidates? Maybe). Let’s begin!

Dr Alkaitis Organic Replenishing Serum Review | A Natural Skin Balancer

Dr Alkaitis Organic Replenishing Serum

Dr Alkaitis Organic Replenishing Serum

Overall Performance: 9.5/10 (scored as a toner)

Price: £43.50

The Organic Replenishing Serum (or the Organic Herbal Toner in the US) is the first product I have tried from the Dr. Alkaitis range, and it certainly won’t be the last. Formulated as “raw health foods” for the skin, Dr. Alkaitis skincare products are 100% biologically active. This means that if you neglect your Dr. Alkaitis products for more than 12 months, it could potentially sprout legs and run away from home.

Just kidding. You are, however, advised to finish off a product within a year due to the living ingredients. I like to think of this as the raw food diet for your skin. Intrigued? Then read on!

Kjaer Weis Essential Trio No.2| Luxury Green Beauty Review

Kjaer Weis Essential Trio 2

Kjaer Weis Essential Trio 2 in box

Overall Performance: 9/10

Price: £85

Developed by New York makeup sensation, Kirsten Kjaer Weis, through 8 years of extensive research, Kjaer Weis is a luxurious green beauty brand like no other. Her products are eco-friendly, organic and high performance. I have been coveting the KW range for quite some time now, and have finally decided to acquire the Trio Set as I am  indecisive keen to try out all of her products!

I have worn the three products altogether for several nights out, and I’m glad to say that the Kjaer Weis range truly lived up to its name. I now am a very happy bunny with three new staples in my makeup bag!

Clarisonic Review | The Harsh Truth

Clarisonic Mia

Clarisonic Mia

Overall Performance: 5.5/10

Price: £125 for the Mia 2; £155 for the new Aria

I’m sure by now, everyone remotely interested in the beauty industry would have heard of the Clarisonic. Since the new Clarisonic Aria has just launched into the market, I felt that it is timely to write this post. From the low ratings above, I’m sure you can tell that the Clarisonic and I do not get on well.

The sad truth is – the Clarisonic is just way too harsh for my skin, especially for everyday use.
