About the Website/Disclaimer

Hello there.

This little virtual space of mine is a place where you will find the books I loved reading, the skin-care products I adore using, the poetry that has stayed with me or that I absolutely don’t want to let go of, amongst many other little things. I celebrate the extraordinariness of the ordinary, quotidian life that I lead in this space.

Please have a look at the content below. I hope you enjoy your stay here.

–What this blog is:

This blog is a personal blog written and edited by me (Lady Solipsism).  The purpose of my blog is to provide in-depth reviews and guides to acquiring products primarily from Asia with a focus on Korea and Japan, and what I experienced and felt while reading the books that I’ve reviewed. I try keeping my book reviews as spoiler-free as possible for your benefit which may (more often than not) result in reviews that are much shorter than your everyday book reviews.


–What this blog is not (wrt to the skin-care category):

I am not and I do not claim to be a medical or licensed professional (I’m an English literature postgraduate); if I am expressing an opinion or advice on a product, brand, company, service, etc, it is my own opinion based on my personal experience using said product, etc. The blog is independent and not created by a shop or brand to market products. While I am open to the brands and companies that want me to review their products I don’t accept money to write posts or influence my reviews.

Please keep in mind that the Asian skin-care routine is highly customizable (literally like building a diet for your skin for different climates) and is different for every individual’s needs and skin type; a product that is my Holy Grail may (mutually) hate your face, and you may love products that my skin isn’t suited to at all. While my posts report my highly individualized findings, you may always rely on my opinion, to be honest, and the information I provide to be as accurate as I have the resources to make it (this basically amounts to testing on my skin for two whole weeks, pH tests, and other skin-care websites that have a heavy dose of chemistry and chemical reactions), but they should not be taken as a substitute for the advice of a medical professional. I really have to caution you once again: my results may not be the same as your results and vice-versa.

It would be a good idea for you to seek multiple [trusted] sources of information before buying products or changing your skin-care routine as my website isn’t a one-stop for all your concerns and queries. Get an appointment with your dermatologist if you have to.
