Cleansers - Unlisted Brand - SRB Stabilized Rice Bran Enzyme Powder Wash

Found out about this on a Reddit forum. I'm using retinol and can't handle any acid toners on my (dehydrated combo 30s) skin at the moment.

It's similar to the Tatcha enzyme wash but I believe this powder is more coarse (haven't tried Tatcha so can't say for sure). The opening is pretty big so be careful when pouring it out. I just wet my face then apply as it …

Mid 30s Asian mixed, dehydrated combo skin here, have been using this alongside a vitamin c serum at night for about a month. For some reason I'm only now trying this as I'd been focusing only in vitamin c to brighten some scars on my face.

I have to say after using with Vitamin c my face appears much brighter and clearer in the morning. Bear in mind I use the …

I got this for about $6.99 to add an antioxidant to my morning routine. Because I live in the tropics I don't use vitamin C during the day and I don't usually use it at night when I use retinol. I'm happy to say there was no pilling or balling up and it works well under my moisturiser and sunscreen during the day.

Ingredients list:
Water, Butylene Glycol …

Skincare - Face - Deciem - The Ordinary Lactic Acid 10% + HA 2%

After using this I got comments from friends about my glowing skin. However I wouldn't recommend using this if you have retinol in your routine. Even though I alternated nights and used it just once a week, it made my skin barrier too thin (I'm using The Ordinary 1% retinol in squalane). Maybe the 5% Lactic Acid is better for retinol users.

I'm 36 with generally problem-free skin, deepening wrinkles under the eyes and dry/dehydrated skin. I got this as part of a birthday freebie from Sephora along with the DE cleanser.

I've been using for about a week and a half and so far it's helped restore my skin barrier which I damaged by using retinol and acids too closely together. Feels 'wet' when applied …

Lipstick - Dior - Rouge Dior Nude Lipstick - Grege #169

I've actually just made my third purchase of this shade. The Rouge Dior formula is comfortable and natural and I think this shade is just right for my (very yellow MAC NC35/NC40) skin tone. It's neutral yet slightly warm, feels comfortable, looks natural but is better than bare lips. It doesn't last long however....hence my third purchase.

Edit May 11 …

Sunscreen - Unlisted Brand - Blue Lizard Australian Sunscreen SPF 30+ Sensitive

This does a great job of sun protection, went out in Caribbean midday sun with 31'C temps and didn't feel a burn.

However even though it's for sensitive skin it clogged my pores and I got a pimple on my cheek. I think it might be the castor oil. Just means I need a different sunscreen for my face.

The reason I have this four lippies is because the product does what it's supposed to, which is conceal redness and provide a more even complexion.

However after a few days of use I've seen some small bumps at the end of the day.

My office is usually hot and I live in the tropics so that may be part of it.

I find it moisturizing in the morning but my dry …

Sunscreen - Dear Klairs - Soft Airy UV Essence SPF 50 PA ++++

EDIT: Had to remove 2 lippies because this sunscreen does not protect against UVA1 rays. It protects against UVA2 and UVB rays (Ethylhexyl Triazone (blocks UVB) and Uvinul A Plus) only.

The only actives that protect against UVA1 are Zinc Oxide, Tinosorb S and Tinosorb M.

Krave Beauty's Beet Shield is a better option for a broad spectrum sunscreen that doesn't …
