Introduction to 23.5N Gel Masks

Nature brought to you by 23.5N in simple, natural and additive free products. The story behind the brand is quite simple: Helen Ho, the founder believe that "beauty is the way that truly fit in for yourself. To believe the simpler, the better."


Among the 16 countries located in the Tropic of Cancer at the latitude of 23.5 degrees north, Taiwan along with Southern China are the only countries with a lush greenland  producing all kind of flowers, fruits, crops and vegetables.


With a dedication to maintain what Nature has to offer, 23.5N brings you a range of products with light and refreshing formulas perfect for living in hot climates.


I am so happy that I have gotten the chance to try their whole range myself before deciding to bring them over to you. Each product is available in full size in 23.5N website but I haven chosen to offer you the travel size.


I often travel to visit my family and as much as I love my products and my routine, sometimes due to luggage space it's always difficult to bring with you the right amount of products without having to decant. 





So not only these make my life a bit easier, it certainly helps a lot if you often take the plane. Each travel kit can be brought with your hand luggage and is the perfect way to cleanse, nourish and protect your skin during your flight. 


Here I am introducing you to their range of gel masks.

My morning routine

Back in May we challenged our followers to share their morning routine using the hashtag WakeMayUp for a chance to win a set of Aeria skin masks!



I was so pleased when so many of my faves Instagrammers joined the challenge and shared their routine. What I love about skincare is that you can learn everyday about a new trend, a new product, a new way to use products. We all have different skin and needs. Everyone's routine is different, you can customize it according to what your skin needs but it's also important to remember that what may work for others might not work for you. 


Picking a winner wasn't an easy task because there is no right or wrong routine so I've enlisted my daughter's help and ask her to choose her favorite flat lay picture!

It's cold... It's raining...


If there is a time to pamper yourself at home, this is definitely the time to do it. 


Pampering yourself is great way to rejuvenate your skin and de-stress from life in general. Block an afternoon off away from work and family and create a relaxing atmosphere: run a bath, light up some scented candles, turn off your phone and play some relaxing music...
