Three favourite Web comics on Webtoon

Hello fam! I know this post might not be the usual type of post I put up. However my life has been such a mess I needed something to unwind with, and without putting any effort in to it.

So I discovered Webtoon, which is a free app in the app store so you can get your hands on it easily.

My discover wasn’t the app itself, even though I was pretty surprised finding it, it was what I have found in it.

I found three comics on Webtoon that may help you unwind or just the distract you from your current problem so you could think straight afterwards. It does help if you wanna see things more clearly.

Side note : your mental health matters so don’t forget to relax in between situations. It is hard but possible.

This post might contain spoilers however I try to be as spoiler-free as possible.

So let’s continue… Shall we?

Lore Olympus: is a Web comic played in the Greek mythology. However there’s a twist. They are in today’s fashion (aka 21st century clothing) whereas the humans (mortals) are in still in early centuries (propably before Christ).

The artist chose one of the best legend to put in the main focus – in my opinion – which is the relationship between Hades and Persephone. I have to tell you this futuristic twist on their clothes and objects are pretty cool and the art style is pretty dope too. I recommend you to read it or at least give it a chance.

It is a romantic type of comic, which I am not really into usually, however this novel influenced me to look around a bit further.

This led me to…

Devil Is A Handsome Man : is also a romantic novel however it is full of mysteries and unclear scenes that keeps you there because you wanna know what exactly happened.

However, at first, I thought it was one of many web comics… But I refused to stop reading so I kept reading.. And thank god I did because it became so exciting after chapter 5 or 4 so I just couldn’t stop I finished this comic within a day (just like the previous comic).

It is also in the romance category however I think it also should be classed as fantasy, mystery or detective category because there are a lot of dots to connect.

If you a person who likes strong female characters as a main character I recommend this for you. Our main character, Xo – short for Xolia – is trying to find out who she really is and who exactly was she.

After this I wanted something different, no too much but different enough to not finish it within a day…

… And I found…

Love Advice from The Great Duke of Hell

I know this is a mouthful but this one leans into more of fantasy and comedy category. It is still romantic but in a different way.

It is a notice me sempai situation but it’s a guy “chasing” after his crush. Our main character is into occult for this reason and one day he successfully summons the Great Duke of Hell, which I can tell, not many mortals are capable of.

Without going into much detail and spoiling it for you (the title is enough spoiler imo), there are going to be scenes where you may feel awkward, or find it funny or just shake your head. It’s not exactly a comedy piece but I’ll admit it can be funny at times.

I love Web comics because I know it is hard drawing digitally and looking at the different between a newer chapter and an older chapter, seeing how much their art style improved over making the chapters feels me with joy and it is fascinating to see.

These people have a particular style that also pulled me in on reading there work. For me, it takes more than just a great art style to pull me in on the story. You won’t regret reading these however these are not for everyone.

Note: I am not sponsored by any of these artist who created these comics. Nor is Webtoon.

Skincare gems part 2

Hello fam! I thought do a second part on this topic because I might have found some dupes if you do not wanna spend much on a moisturiser or you’re just simply in a tight budget and of course some higher priced products.

Let’s continue then!

Superdrug Naturally Radiant 2 in 1 moisturizer and serum

This little fella might just be a dupe for Tarte’s drink of H2O moisturizer. It is also super light weight and has a touch of kiwi scent to it. I used this multiple times and it never failed me nor my face! Obviously if you have a very sensitive skin like my boyfriend I wouldn’t recommend you to put it close to your eye area. – long story, you don’t wanna know. 😅

I also have sensitive skin but I didn’t have any reaction he experienced. However it was his first time ever trying something like this out.

FYI: he is even allergic to his favourite hair gel but still keeps using it. 🤦🏻‍♀️

Aloe Vera gel

You don’t have to buy the plant itself if you don’t want to however they do grow fast. I have both the plant and some in the tube. I use aloe vera for my skin, stretch marks, my scalp and my hair. It gives my curls back that I straightened out over the years. It is not a magical wonder product but if you keep using it, it might give you your curls back.

E.l.f eye refresh roller

This is a life saver for me because if my sleep pattern is disturbed even if it is just a tiny bit it shows on my face and under eye area… So thank you e.l.f for saving my under eye area.

Before the first use, I rolled it on my neck to see if it would cause any irritations, which it didn’t howere you need to make sure to do a patch test first just incase.

Superdrug Vitamin C booster drops

I know it might sound like I have a sponsorship with superdrug but in reality I actually don’t! If I did I would have said so!

About the product. For a booster it is really light weight and my skin sucked it up quickly even when I used other moisturizer before, usually my skin does not let everything in itself so for me this was a good sign. It has a nice scent however it is minimal so you will not be irritated by it!

I have been using this product for a couple of days now, my skin is moisturised but it is easier to keep a skin of a 22-year-old hydrated than restore the hydration of someone’s skin who is in their 50s.

Which gave me an excellent idea and opportunity to try this product on my mother’s face and we will see the results in 2 weeks. If we will see some.

FYI: I personally use this for my uneven skin tone.

Skincare essentials for combination skin.

If you have combination skin then you might just feel me and my situation.

Disclaimer: I am not a professional makeup artist nor a dermatologist. Test the products on your neck before using them on your face.

I have combination skin, but it is so combination, my dry patches have oily patches, and my oily patches have dry patches. Also large pores and breakouts – if something dirty touches my face, and the sweat also a trigger for me to have breakouts too.

Found some products that might just be good for you as well as it was for me and these products also can be used for any other skin types! Good, isn’t it?

For my routine I use a three step rule I found on the Internet. You can also add additional steps if you want to.

The thee steps are, cleanse, exfoliate and moisturise. Sounds easy, right?

Cleanse

Cleansing is important because you need to wash off the day’s muck off your face especially if you live in a big city. Why? Because the pollution from the exhaust of the vehicles are cause of clogged pores and uneven skin tone.

I personally use Boots own Cucumber facial toner because

  • It’s for all skin types
  • Affordable
  • It is gentle
  • Effective
  • Has a cooling effect

I love this toner and it is very good for the price as well and I’d rather splurge on moisturizer and sheet masks than toners and exfoliants.

Exfoliate

In oder to have less breakouts you need to get rid of dead skin on your face and dead skin can clog up your pores too.

To exfoliate my skin I usually use a regular lip scrub or a homemade sugar scrub because they can do the trick and an exfoliant do not have to be expensive to be effective! But this is my take on it.

Additional step: if I want to be extra I tend to use some peel off mask or a clay mask before using a moisturiser.

Moisturise

This is my favourite step because this is when I can use the products I like to splurge on!

My skin gets irritated quickly after a strong cleanse and dry my skin out but this little bad boy saves it all the time.

H2O skin drink by tarte is so far the best moisturiser I have ever tried. It is light weight, minimal scent, and leaves my skin radiant. However if you don’t like to spend too much money on a moisturiser I would recommend you to either try a travel size pack by Tarte or use a moisturiser by Superdrug because it shouldn’t cost an arm and leg to have a healthy skin.

Additional step: just before using a moisturiser I use an anti-spot gel by e.l.f which can be drying on the skin I would definitely recommend to do this before you use any moisturiser or sheet mask.

A treat for the eyes

After I finished my using my moisturiser I refresh my eyes with the e.l.f Eye refresh roller so I could wake up fresh and bright in the morning. I also take it with me wherever I go.

FYI: this is just my way of dealing with combination skin.

Mobile phone games you should try- with caution

Most people nowadays have at least one or two games on their phone.

Mobile phone games can be relaxing or annoying to the point you get frustrated. I collected some games which might not be new to you or you might have heard of them before. This list will be updated with a few more games so I apologise if it’s not long enough yet.

Before I continue, I would like to state that as much as games are fun, your priorities should come first.

I used to play a lot with this game and I am really fond of it too. Homescapes is about renovating and restoring an old mansion our main character, Austin, grew up in. This game is a single player but if you are online you can enter tournaments which can give you prizes, and you also get daily prizes, which are boosters. To restore the mansion you need to complete tasks, to compete a task you need stars. The way you get a star by playing a mini game, which is similar to Candy Crush, and you need to make matches of similar items.

You need to get trough different levels and the difficulty of the level always changes. You can easily get through the levels by using boosters. If you loose on the level you loose a life out of five lives.

It is a neat game if you turn away from the “pay to win” aspect of this game. Regardless of the daily rewards and the tourney prizes you won’t always be able to get through the stage without boosters, unless you try very hard. I needed to do a level 10 times before I beat the level…

Badland: is a cute adventure mobile phone game that is also available for Xbox and PlayStation 4 and other platforms as well. This is a single player and a multiplayer game in one.

I used to own this game too and I loved it and it is pretty straight forward game.

If you played Ori and The Blind Forest then I think you would love this game too because Badland has a foresty background to it.

There are different levels you need to complete, however some of the levels are locked and you can only unlock it if you buy certain levels. They’re not that expensive to buy though.

I used to play this game a lot but I am not up to date with the changes within the app.

My little Pony: OK you might have heard of this game. Yes you can laugh all you want but this game is still cute. If you didn’t know The My Little Pony Friendship is Magic is based on the animated My Little Pony series developed by Gameloft for iOS and Android devices.

This is a single player game with multiplayer interactions. The difference between this game and the previous one is you can only get prizes by leveling up. Obviously you still will get competitions and fulfilling tasks will also lend you rewards as well as the daily game called Balloon Pop which I think you can count as a daily reward but you won’t get it unless you pop the balloons.

This game is the most enjoyable for me is because 1, it’s cute 2, doesn’t take long to level up 3, it’s about ponies.

As much as I love these free to download games there are a few cons of these.

The other side of the industry

Micro-transactions are one of the few things I dislike about these… Well of course they need to make money somehow but then it is not a AAA game on the Xbox and I don’t like the thought of my hard earned money landing into an already rich coperation’s pocket.

I wouldn’t be fussed about it if the animators had better conditions to work in.

In the eyes of the corporation, these people are disposable. They are just bodies, they can be replaced by another body. These companies will do anything to keep their shareholders happy.

I’m not saying that you can’t buy some of the bundles you want in your game, because I have done that before, but as soon as I knew the things I just mentioned I felt a bit bitter about spending my money on any of these games.

Here are some useful links you can read too. 👇🏻

Dark side of working in the video game industry: 100-hour weeks and on-the-spot sackings

76% of game developers still labor under crunch conditions

Mental health and physical health of the developers are also important, not just satisfying the greedy shareholders.

How would YOU feel if you had to work in conditions like that?

Well… This post turned dark quite quickly. 🤷🏻‍♀️
