Treatments (Eye) - CHANEL - Chanel Hydra Beauty Micro Gel Yeux

4.0

Jan/19/2017

Received a deluxe sample of this and used this for approximately a month. This is gel apparently has a light texture, but not those giving me a slick / slimy silicone finish touch. Easily absorbed. It helped keep my eye area hydrated but it didn't help with the small dry lines I have under my eye - probably this is not 'appearance of first signs of aging'?

The only good …

Crème - Clé de Peau Beauté - Radiant Cream Foundation

5.0

Jan/19/2017

Purchased this in July 2016 but didn't have the time to review this till now. When compared to the older version, this is more or less the same except being lighter, which make this usable in the hot and humid Asian summer . This stays on pretty well in the summer, like 12+ hours (mid-day blotting is needed but no touch-up) and it stays on even better when the weather is colder or drier. I …Read more

Body Scrubs - SABON - Shower Oil

5.0

Apr/02/2016

Awesome shower product especially for the drier days / dry skin. Although its name is shower oil, it will not leave my skin oily at all. My skin is cleansed and left really soft with a delicate scent of rose (I have this in Rose Tea). I can skip the lotion for most of the days when I use this even in the drier months. My mom has even drier skin than I do and she absolutely loves it …Read more

Body Scrubs - SABON - Rose Tea Body Scrub

Apr/02/2016

First of all, it smells divine and it makes the whole shower so enjoyable! Back to the product, my skin is so velvety soft and smooth after using it. I think the only setback is the salt being a little bit too harsh for my skin (well, some parts) - I'd need to use this with the shower oil by mixing them together on my palms first. Ladies with sensitive skin should take note of this as I felt …Read more

Makeup Brushes - EcoTools - Correcting Concealer Brush

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/02/2016

FYI: I used this brush with a cream concealer.

In general, I am happy with EcoTools brushes but definitely not this one! The brush is doomed with rather stiff bristles, which is quite soft to touch with fingers. Given the shape of this brush, I assume this should be used by stippling the concealer on. Thus, I tried it on my under-eye area and I was so wrong to do this - it was so …

Powder - CHANEL - Vitalumiere Compact Douceur

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/20/2014

Since my old Vitalumiere Eclat was used up and being discontinued, I was left no choice but to purchase the new version.

For the texture, the older version is definitely more finely milled. The surface of the newer version, when used, will become kind of bumpy instead of just a smooth surface. Anyway, the new version still glides on nicely on my face though I have a feeling that this …

Mascara - Bourjois - Volume Glamour Max Waterproof

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/20/2013

Running out of my staple and without having much waterproof mascara to select in the drugstore, I picked this as I recall using the Volume Glamour Ultra Black long time ago and that one was nice stuff actually.

This mascara comes with a thick spoolie brush, in fact a bit too big for my liking as it's difficult to get into the corners. It volumizes and lengthens my lashes a bit …

Sunscreen - SHISEIDO - Perfect UV Protector SPF 50+ PA++++ Very Water-resistant

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/03/2013

Sunscreen is a big issue especially when it comes to summer and this time, I dropped my long time favourite Anessa (another line made by Shiseido) and bought this one.

Here are my major reasons of switching:
(1) The Anessa sunscreen is so freaking difficult to be removed thoroughly unless using a cleansing oil, which is a big issue if you this on your other body parts as well. The …

Treatments (Eye) - Curél - Moisture Eye Zone Essence

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/18/2013

To begin with, I have rather dehydrated eye zone.

As this is named as an essence, I expected it to be more of a serum-like texture. But then it turned out to be a light-weight gel.

To be honest, this didn't provide enough hydration to my skin area, especially in the drier months. I definitely need an extra eye cream on top. It works decently in more humid months as at …

Cleansers - Bioré - Kao Make-Up Remover Perfect Oil

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/24/2012

This is an average cleansing oil to me, but when price is taken into account, this is actually more than decent. It removes waterproof makeup rather easily and smells refreshing. The consistency is right too, which isn't too thick in texture and it doesn't take long to wash off completely. Another good thing about this is the availability - it's basically in any drugstore you can …Read more
