Glass Skin; The Latest Korean Beauty Trend. It is Achievable?

Set to Glow is all about being honest and only promoting things that actually work. My Instagram followers really love my honest reviews. Just recently I wrote about the Korean Skincare products I know and love in Dr Jart+ and Korean SkincareThe post was mainly about the 10 Step Korean Skincare Routine and what products you can use to achieve it. A normal routine in a western country involves a cleanser, exfoliator, hydrating serum, moisturiser and sunscreen.

Non-Toxic Nail Polish vs My Signature Red OPI

I have been using OPI nail polish for years. Back when I was a teenager I used to buy $2 chemist black nail polish because I was a goth and I was on a budget. Then I think I progressed to Kmart bought brands like Revlon. After that the first designer brand anything that I owned was makeup and nail polish. I tried Chanel nail polish - that was nice. The packaging was lovely but it chipped too easily. I tried YSL too and Christian Louboutin around the same time I got an OPI manicure at a salon somewhere I think.
