Beauty whatnots while I was away

Cosmetic Clear Box
Sorry for the silence. I was caught up with a domestic project and decided to take an announced blog break. But the break went on longer than I’d expected. I ended up losing momentum and found it painfully hard to get back to my blogging groove. At some point, I even thought of giving up totally.

But I’m back…with a short post for now. I wanted to show you some of the beauty items that I’ve been “meddling” with while I was away.

So…I finally got down to organizing my cosmetics! I first started tidying up my stash with Ikea’s Godmorgon box. Then I chanced upon some very affordable cosmetic clear boxes at BHG and decided to do a more thorough organization. Here’s a glimpse of the “outcome”:

Cosmetic Clear Tray
Cosmetics Clear Trays
Ikea Godmorgon Box with Compartments
Ikea Raskog Trolley
Many of you are probably familiar with the Ikea Raskog Trolley. This is something I’ve been using for awhile. It’s used to house the skincare and haircare products I use daily or frequently.

Charcoal Dehumidifier
Charcoal Dehumidifier For Cosmetics
And because I use mostly natural and organic skincare, I always use dehumidifiers to prevent the products from spoiling too quickly as a result of the high humidity.

Cloversoft Unbleached Tissue Paper
Finally, I’ve been using Cloversoft 100% natural and unbleached tissue paper that I chanced upon at Japan Home to wipe my face, particularly after a face wash.

I picked up this tip of using tissue paper instead of a towel to dry my face from a reader. But I was always using the usual white tissue which are bleached. Obviously I was happy to use these especially because they’re quite affordable.

Okay, that’s all I can post for now. I hope to come back with my usual posts soon. You can follow me on Instagram. That’s a platform I update more regularly these days.

Or you can drop me a comment. I can really do with more encouragement. #k8SjZc9Dxk#k8SjZc9Dxk

    Thank you, Mai! I’m so glad that my tips have been useful for you. Of late I’ve been thinking that I might have been too opinionated and should perhaps cut back on giving my POV. Haha…well, we’ll see. But yes, am wanting to post about the 7-skin Korean tip…soon.

  10. Sesame says:

    Thanks Daniela! ?

  11. Sesame says:

    Oh yes, those at Muji are expensive! If you can get to Daiso, you may be able to find some that suit your needs.

  12. Sesame says:

    Haha…yes, the perils of being a beauty blogger. I keep hoarding. ?

  13. Sesame says:

    Thanks, Ashley, for your encouragement! ?

  14. Sesame says:

    I love posting about food too but I find it more work than posting about beauty stuff. ?

  15. Sesame says:

    Oh thanks so much, Marilyn, for sharing your comments. It means a lot for me to read your thoughts! ?

    So happy to see your new post Sesame. Have been checking your blog frequently for new updates and so glad to see you posting! May you have more inspiration to post again!! And also sharing your lunchtime recipes!

  19. Kate says:

    Been checking out your blog daily for the next post and here it is! It’s crucial to take a break off and search for the motivation to get started again, no matter how short your post is, I’m sure everyone appreciates it.

    I’ve been doing some arrangement and decluttering on my own, to keep track of items I have as well. So to plan my next purchase. And I keep all the stuff that I intend to use up, especially samples and gifts, on a side where I see them more often then those I hoard as reserves ?

    Good to see you back!

  20. Sesame says:

    Thanks Luisa for your kind comments! Appreciate your dropping by and your comment. ?

  21. Sesame says:

    Thanks for checking, Gem! Hope to get up to speed soon. ?

  22. Sesame says:

    Haiz…been thinking that I’m such a bad hoarder of skin care products. Been accumulating and still want more and then justifying that it’s my hobby. ?

  23. JackieA says:

    Do keep your posts coming – I have enjoyed reading them over the years….Thank you for some amazing and inspiring posts, especially those on food! I truly admire you for taking the time to prepare food and take to work most days! Personally I think its better to be opinionated than have no opinion at all so if you are up to it, do continue the good work.

    Hi Sesame, I’m a Long time reader of yours and recently I came across an article from published on that sounded eerily similar to an article I read on your blog about 6 things to know about Asian skin, the content is a bit different but considering that it’s published on a website of a major local magazine I just thought you would like to know.
