Hair Treatments - Unlisted Brand - Ouai Hair Oil

4.0

Jun/02/2017

Firstly, I don't like the smell at all.. It kind of reminded of a insecticide my mother used to use but that part goes away almost instantly after rubbing into my hair ends. It smells lovely after blow-drying. I'm not too sure if I got a bad one during a sale.. It definitely did not smell like their usual shampoos/conditioners.

Price-wise I would say it's rather …

Treatments (Face) - Mizon - Snail Recovery Gel Cream

5.0

May/18/2017

I happened to be at a random Chinese herbal shop/drugstore and this was only SGD7.90?! That's super cheap. There are some articles over the net that claims the snails' mucin were ethically harvested hence I decided to give it a go :)

I had a really red inflamed pimple and after applying this overnight and it helped to lessen the redness by 50%. This might work better for …

Cleansers - CLINIQUE - Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/06/2017

I didn't really have a good experience with Clinique's skincare range when I was in my early teens.. I was a bit hesitant to try the cleansing balm but after watching lots of Youtube videos, I just had to try it! I find it more effective than the Banila Co Clean It Zero and other cleansing oils I've tried.

I'd recommend to use a spatula instead of your fingers to …

Treatments (Face) - La Roche-Posay - Effaclar Duo (European Version)

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/17/2016

I love this product! Previously I used the old version but they have reformulated it to Effaclar Duo [+]. I only noticed a very slight difference in the first and second version, the effectiveness isn't as fast anymore..

It cleared a lot of my whiteheads on my forehead when I started breaking out in my late teens. However I noticed it doesn't really do much for my pimples now …

Treatments (Face) - Kiehl's - Midnight Recovery Concentrate

Jul/05/2016

I love this product! First off, I have sensitive, oily and acne-prone skin. I only use this serum 2-3 times a week, depending on my skin's condition. I try not to use too often because my skin is pretty "thin" so I'd break out easily if I keep using oils/heavy-duty creams.

I would usually do the following steps: Cleansing facial gel > Witch Hazel Toner > Wait …

Skincare - Face - Unlisted Brand - Galderma - Benzac AC 10 (benzoyl peroxide gel 10%)

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/18/2016

I tried Benzac 10 for 1-2 days and I was so disappointed because I didn't really see much of a difference. Everything changed when I was having a really bad breakout and I thought nothing could make it worse (I was exaggerating hahaha) so I tried this.

I always used a cotton bud to dot on my spots before I went to sleep.. True enough, you'll see the difference after a week! I …

Cleansers - Eucerin - Dermopurifyer Makeup And Acne Cleansing Water

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/27/2016

I have sensitive, oily, acne-prone skin and this product claims to cleanse, tone, remove makeup and reduce acne. I went on to read reviews on this product (very few and sponsored because its a new product), tried looking for it on the international website but there was no info, only on the Singapore one. Okay that doesn't really have any link with my review but just thought I wanted to give …Read more

Concealers - NARS Cosmetics - Radiant Creamy Concealer

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/21/2016

I love this concealer! I couldn't justify how expensive it was for a concealer but its definitely worth the hype. Its staying power is definitely worth the price and 10x better than drugstore concealers (I love Collection as well but its discontinued in Singapore :( ).

Weirdly, I'm using NARS tinted moisturiser in light 1 finland but for this concealer I'm using light 2 …

Concealers - Maybelline New York - Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Treatment Concealer

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/21/2016

I can see why Youtubers and beauty bloggers rave about this product for its coverage.. It just didn't work very well for me. It covers well after I've colour corrected my under eyes with salmon pink concealer. However its hard for my loose powder to set on this concealer and I've tried baking, sponges, brushes, etc but my loose powder just wouldn't set.. Even if it did, it …Read more

Moisturizers - LUSH - Vanishing Cream

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/19/2016

I've been using Vanishing Cream for about a month or two and it doesn't seem to break me out or improve my skin. It does moisturise well and I like to use it at night. I wake up with well-moisturised skin and it feels like it does sit on my skin and it doesn't really absorb into my skin much at first but I learnt to use it minimally (just a small dollop for the whole face). I do …Read more
