Have you ever used something, and thought, 'Where have you been all my life?!'
You use it on a recurrent skin problem - you'd even rubbed your own tears on this problem (just to see) - and it's the ONLY product that showed immediate results?

Real Name: Centella Asiatica
It is also called Tiger Grass, because tigers roll their bodies on it when they're wounded (Don't you just LOVE information about the wilderness like this?) How do the tigers know this, is what I'm wondering.
Cica is dominating most of Korean skincare's Ingredients decks lately. The brand, Some By MI, has launched a serum made with Snail Mucin & Cica, and I can't wait to try that out!
I'm now using the Innisfree Bija Cica Balm, which has proven to me that it does work like a charm.
I was (and still am) so bored with the beauty scene here in India, because everything on my wish list isn't available here. I hadn't bought an eyeshadow palette since the Revolution Flawless 4 Palette, like, over 1 year ago. I don't even want to go makeup shopping anywhere in this city anymore.
So, when news got out that Sephora India was bringing Anastasia Beverly Hills, or 'ABH', to our shores, I was like, "Ahhhh......water!"
Apply Castor Oil.
Apply a mixture of castor, coconut & olive oils.
Eyelash surgery, where they'd sew individual hair on your eyelids.
I've read every article on eyelash thickening tips, but never tried any. I have never even seen Castor Oil in real life, but I swear I've been meaning to get it for my lashes since I was 18 years old!
I've only tried using Vaseline, which did improve the density of my lashes, but it always made my vision blurry when it got inside my eyes.....
....and now, I'm finally using the Etude House My Lash Serum....
This lash serum seem to be very popular, and it's one product with a lot more good reviews than bad ones. I think it's because it's not an overpriced eyelash product, that arouses high expectations. Everybody can try it, and keep buying it - like a convenience store lip balm.
Ingredients (taken from Etude House website): Water (Aqua), Butylene Glycol, ethanol, glycerin, phenoxyethanol, polyacrylic acid, tromethamine, blood not -32, blood not -6, disodium this dithiol this (???), dangyak extract, carbonate, biotin, sodium hyaluronidase, Maltodextrin, Ginseng Extract, Ethylhexyl Glycerin, iris extract, Aloe Vera leaf extract, Yellow No. 4.
*I see no Parabens on this list, whereas I've seen some sites list the common parabens. So, I really don't know.
Life's been more exciting than any vacation I've ever been on.
Not necessarily good or perfect, and I fall down a lot, but when I'm up & my antennas aren't disrupted (and I dress up a bit), it's something else.
Hot & intense, unpredictable & 'Romance Novel-esque' ;)
(This is gonna prick some people..... *ahem*)
It's true what they say, life really does begin in your late 30's, because that's when you know, without a shadow of a doubt, who you really are & who/what you WANT.
These days, my soul screams for the things it craves at 3:55 am.
Either that, or Ziizayne has kicked me in his sleep again.
As some of you know, my birthday happened too soon again, and I am officially 38 years old now.
I know I'm 3 weeks late with my mandatory birthday post & it's been sitting idly in my drafts since.
So, for all of you waiting to see a Birthday Haul....
Aside from my entire outfit here, I collected some things before my birthday:
