Treatments (Face) - Unlisted Brand - Herbivore Botanicals Lapis Facial Oil

4.0

A lot of people have given this a lot of praise about how it helps control their oil and their acne. I guess I can sorta say the same with my experience of this oil? It's a rather fast absorbing oil compared to others I've tried, which is nice and my acne hasn't been aggravated by it either. But I don't know if I can say that this did much for my acne otherwise in terms of …Read more

Toners - Paula's Choice - CLEAR Regular Strength Anti-Redness Exfoliating Solution wtih 2% Salicylic Acid

5.0

2 months ago

I recently had a stubborn bout of hormonal acne after getting of birth control pills and this seems to have really helped purge out a lot of the underlying inflamed acne I was getting from that. I initially wasn't sure which BHA from the brand I should try because they have so many types, but eventually I landed on this one. My skin has never really tolerated salicylic acid very well but I …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Sunday Riley - Juno Hydroactive Cellular Face Oil

I got a sample of this that I was able to stretch out with about a week of usage. I didn't break out from this, thankfully. Normally I can tell if something is breaking me out within a few days, but this didn't. Despite it not being particularly breakout prone for me, I still think this oil is quite thick so I only used it at night. It gave my skin a natural, subtle glow from within the …Read more

Masks - innisfree - Jeju Volcanic Pore Clay Mask

4.0
Created with Sketch.

11 months ago

I have the super volcanic version. I really like it! With the mask being the "super" version, I was worried about it being drying but this has to be the least drying clay mask I've ever used. It does dry down after 5 minutes, but it doesn't make my face feel dry after rinsing like every other clay mask I've tried. It leaves a slightly cooling sensation upon rinsing which …Read more

Sad to give this a negative review because I really do admire the brand and what the founder/formulator does, but this just doesn't work for me. I was lucky enough to purchase a sample from someone off Asian Beauty Exchange on Reddit some time ago and I was suuuuuper excited to try it because 1. The ingredients list looks bomb and so well thought out, and 2. The rave …Read more

Moisturizers - Glossier - Priming Moisturizer

1.0

11 months ago

I got a little sample of this from a Glossier order my cousin made for me when he was in the US (I live in Australia and Glossier doesn't ship here). Upon looking at the ingredients list, this wasn't a product that really interested me especially since I already have moisturisers that I love and trust. But I thought, what the heck. It's just a sample and despite the mixed reviews …Read more

Concealers - Glossier - Stretch Concealer

If you're looking for a high coverage, long wearing concealer: this isn't it. But you know what? I like it anyway. I've always had very stubborn acne with a lot of post inflammatory hyperpigmentation but ever since working on my skincare and clearing a lot of that up as a result, this has been a great concealer to wear on days when you're on the go and just want to brighten up …Read more

Sunscreen - CANMAKE - Mermaid Skin Gel UV SPF50 / PA

5.0

12 months ago

Sad to see some negative reviews of this sunscreen on here because I've personally loved it! But YMMV when it comes to skincare...

This has everything I want in a sunscreen: no white caste, doesn't leave a sticky or oily residue, looks dewy but not overly so, wears nicely under makeup (I haven't experienced any pilling with this) and has a decently high SPF rating. This …

Sunscreen - SHISEIDO - Senka Mineral UV Gel SPF50 PA+++

5.0

Dec/10/2018

I like this. It looks matte but doesn't feel drying. It actually feels somewhat moisturising to me, despite the alcohol content. It keeps my oils at bay throughout the bay too compared to my other more emollient sunscreen. My sunscreen of choice when I'm wearing a full face of makeup.

The drawbacks though? Not widely available to buy. It's a little hard too track online …

Brows - NYX Professional Makeup - Tinted Brow Mascara

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/10/2018

I was able to completely transition out of using brow pencils to fill in my eyebrows because of this brow mascara. It's just as pigmented! Downsides of this product are that it doesn't hold my brow hairs too well (eg. too thick and gets weighed down if I try to brush my brows up for the day). It also feels quite crunchy compared to other brow gels I have tried. Nonetheless, the pros …Read more
