Lotions/ Creams - Unlisted Brand - Mekhala - Body Lotions

This lotion absorbs really quickly and doesn't leave any sticky icky feeling. Quite impressive in Singapore's humid weather. But this also means that it is quite light and you'll need to pile it on for harsh, dry winters.

Comes in 2 versions - Anti-aging Black Rice and Nourishing Young Rice Milk. I've tried both and I prefer the Black rice one mainly because of the …

Cleansers - Unlisted Brand - Mekhala - Tamarind Facial Cleanser

Jun/20/2012

Many drugstore brands and even high end brands tend to cause reactions when used on my sensitive skin. Clogging, breakouts, itching and so on. So far this cleanser has kept my skin clean without problems. Am convinced it's the chemicals in other products that have been wrecking my skin all this time. (This cleanser claims to be 100% natural, no parabens, sulphates or artificial …Read more

If you're looking for a long wearing, convenient product, this is definitely it. I had the black and it was black. Stays on for a long long time. Pencil is the twist-type with a fine lead so no sharpening required. Sleek black packaging looks good in the powder room. Price is super affordable. Great alternative to liquids and gels. Not good for smudging.

I got this as a gift. First reaction was that I love the packaging. It's just so pretty. You can't take it with you like the twist top ones but you can always transfer some to a small container.

I have the one with shimmer. Made me look fat when I tried using it all over my face, glowing like the full moon. But then I discovered that this works great as a highlight under the …

Blush - SHISEIDO - Majolica Majorca puff de cheek macaron

This blusher comes in the prettiest tin with a cute yet functional puff. You have to love Japanese attention to detail. The plastic separator comes printed with instructions to keep the separator in the tin to keep the puff clean and prevent loss of powder.

The powder requires patience to blend in and also fades quite easily. You can get quite a rich colour if you layer. I have this …

Lips - SHISEIDO - Water in Lip

This moisturizers my very stubborn flaky lips which is so important for me. Even the vaseline petroleum jelly ones don't do as good a job. No scent, just slight tingly feeling. Only problem is I can't wear it under lippie cos it makes lipstick slip.

Good for daily use.

I don't know if it's cause I want to see the difference, or if it really works, but I do notice my skin turnover rate accelerate when I use this. Helps my skin recover from blemishes more quickly which I love.

The dispenser is just a hole at the top of the bottle which makes it difficult to control the amount that comes out. I know you should use a cotton pad to wipe your …

I liked this. The twist cap dispense is great for hygiene purposes. When I get to the end, I yank it off and dig into what's left so as not to waste.

Went through 2 bottles of this until I started using a bit more per use and noticed it was clogging my pores. I couldn't stick to using less because my skin is too dry so I had to look for an alternative.

Am …

Moisturizers - SK-II - Cellumination Deep Surge

So far so good. I love the light texture of this gel. It hasn't clogged my pores or cause any breakouts and I've been using this for 2 months.

I don't like the spatula which is annoying to keep clean. Would prefer a pump or squeeze bottle, though it won't look as luxe.

I would repurchase except it's too expensive. Looking for cheaper alternatives.

Terrible. My skin reacted badly to this. Probably due to some chemical or alcohol in it. Used over a week, my skin got itchy, red and blotchy. Not recommended for sensitive skin.
