Skincare - Face - Yves Rocher - Bio Calmille Refreshing Gel Cleanser

4.0
Created with Sketch.

3 months ago

The cleanser is very gentle and my skin has a softened and 'clean' feeling after use. However, as it is made for all skin types, it is a little too drying. My face feels tight, but the feeling disappears after putting on some moisturizer. I only use a very small quantity each time due to the drying effect post-wash (a small pea-sized blob). No visible increase in breakouts (I usually …Read more

Tinted Moisturizer - LUSH - Colour Supplement

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/19/2018

(Product: Light pink)

I got the colour supplement as a replacement for foundation because I was afraid of clogging up my pores and getting breakouts. In addition to evening out skintone, this product also reduces redness and bumps from skin sensitivity. It is easy to remove and does not dissolve in oily skin throughout the course of the day. My skin is also more moisturised after use …

Lip Treatments - Burt's Bees - Honey Lip Balm

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/11/2018

I bought the honey lip balm because I like honey stuff, but also that the original beeswax lip balm smelled too strongly of peppermint. It has been effective on my chapped lips so far. I left it on one night, and I had small blisters on my lips the next morning, but I wasn't sure if it was the lip balm or lipstick that I was using the previous day. The blisters went away themselves after a …Read more

Eyeliner - TONYMOLY - Backstage Eyeliner

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/11/2018

I have the 02 Brown and my friend recommended this to me, as it does not dissolve in oily skin and it is waterproof. (My previous liner dissolved and my wingtip broke apart). It can stay on the whole day until I get home at night, so far. The brush bristles are soft and smooth, but they do not adversely affect application -- conversely, the shape of it allows me to draw the feline wingtips well …Read more

Foundations - TONYMOLY - BCDation Plus

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/11/2018


(Disclaimer: I don't like putting full-face makeup because it makes my face feel clogged and heavy -- like I'm wearing a real mask.) This product has a huge advantage of combining BB cream, CC cream and foundation in one bottle, which works well for a person like me who does not know what makeup brands to invest in, can't be bothered to buy 3 bottles of different things when …

Polishes - OPI - Lincoln Park After Dark

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/11/2018

Lincoln Park works well if you can't decide whether you want a black or a dark nail polish. In the light, it looks dark purplish, and in low lighting, it looks black. It is perfect if you feel like 'almost, but not quite'. It also does not stain your nails as badly as full black nail polishes. The name suits the colour: dark purple like the night sky, almost black but not quite.

Lotions/ Creams - LUSH - Sleepy Hand and Body Lotion

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/11/2018

This lotion is, so far, the best I've ever used. The lavender smell is soothing without being overpowering, and its moisturising properties deliver as promised. Since Lush does not add alcohol into the lotion, it is thick and also takes a bit of time in my humid homeland to be absorbed into the skin (feels a bit sticky, but not greasy). The absorption rate does not bother me, though. The …Read more

Brows - Etude House - Drawing Eye Brow Pencil

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/11/2018

(Context: 03 Brown) This eyebrow liner is easy to apply and use. The brush on the other end is very convenient. The colour of the liner is clear. A bit of it dissolves when my skin gets oily, although, at the end of the day, there is still sufficient left that I still have a brow. It does get a bit patchy too, but I have no complaints as it does not bother me. The liner is also easy to remove …Read more

Shampoo - Yves Rocher - Low ShamPoo Delicate Cleansing Cream

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/11/2018

Context: tropical & humid climate, urban, active lifestyle, thick, long hair -- so I have to wash my hair everyday.

I got this shampoo because I was tired of my hair getting dandruff every other week, its 'hard' texture and just generally unruly (my hair is not totally straight but also not totally wavy). I also wanted to stay from the silicones, parabens, and other …

Masks - LUSH - Catastrophe Cosmetic Fresh Face Mask

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/11/2018

This mask was fun to use as it is cold (it has to be refrigerated) and gave me a smooth matte finish after washing off. The smell is not very strong, and smelled like blueberries. My skin felt really clean and dry after the mask, which is very rare for me as I have oily skin. A major flaw for me, though, is that the mask clogs my pores and it is quite hard to wash off. I found out about the …Read more
