best hydrating serums and essences

Hydrating serums battle! East vs. West! Serums vs. Essences! Pt. 1

We’re veering quickly into that time of the year that wreaks havoc on sensitive skin. Outside you’ll have chilling winds, while inside you’ll have the driest air possible, thanks to the heater blasting with full force – what’s a girl to do? (Apart from swaddling her face in sheet masks on a regular basis.) Hydrating serums to the rescue! But wait, there’re also hydrating essences that all those smooth-skinned K-Beauty stars rely on… Maybe those are the way to go?! We tested three hydrating essences and three serums. See who’ll emerge the winner!READ MORE

The thing about reviews – hyped-up products that didn’t work

A beloved YouTube and blog category is the ‘Worth the hype’ tag for about every beauty product imaginable. For every beauty blogger and vlogger influenced hype, there’re again bloggers and vloggers wanting to check said hype. And in the end, it’s up to you what to believe. I want to show you what happened when I was enabled and why things went awry. Follow me on a journey through blogs, vlogs, discussions with friends, and see where Twindly comes into that.READ MORE

Beauty shopping in Singapore

Beauty adventures in Singapore

I love Singapore. It has been dubbed the Asian city for beginners, because for a Western person, it’s incredibly easy to get around. For me, though, it’s the Asian New York City – a melting pot, a financial hub, a touristy mess – topped with a all-year round hot climate, awesome parks and gardens, yummy food and well, the shopping. It’s easy to get overwhelmed with all the shopping malls and opportunities, and I wouldn’t say that I even scratched the surface of this teeming city. But here’re my favourite spots for beauty shopping in Singapore.READ MORE

Skincare hack: how to avoid tacky face

Twindlytuesday: Two skincare hacks to avoid sticky skin!

I don’t know about you, but I absolutely hate the feeling of product sitting on my face and that tacky feeling that comes with it. Liquid foundation that never settles? Urgh. Face oils that never properly sinks in? Bah. Can’t stand it. And besides, it’s not just that icky sticky feeling – it also stained bed clothes and a rising level of impatience, while I hop impatiently around and waiting for skincare to sink in so I can apply my makeup in the morning, and nobody has time for that! Enough reasons to tackle the sticky face situation once and for all.READ MORE

Here to stay – beauty faves of 2014 (part 1)

We at twindly are of course always keen on trying new products, but which products from 2014 will stay with us through 2015? Here are our 10 from 2014!
