Lip Treatments - L'Occitane - 10% shea butter anti-drying lip balm

Aug/12/2011

I was given a full size of this as a GWP and I think it is the newest version. Unlike other reviewers I did not have any issues with product moisturisation or the smell. It smells light, sweet and buttery and is very hydrating and not at all waxy. One fatal flaw though was the application. I found the balm disintegrated at an alarming rate leaving the application tip of the balm bumpy. The …Read more

Bronzers - Bobbi Brown - Illuminating Bronzing Powder in Aruba

Jul/29/2011

I'm fair, Asian with yellow tones (obviously) and this is perfect for me. I normally use Stila's sun powder in 1 but I found that while it looked great initially, the product tended to oxidise and turn a reddish colour on me (this is after perhaps after a year of opening the compact - I don't wear much makeup nor do I wear it often). So I decided to switch to something that would …Read more

Skincare - Face - Bioré - detoxify daily scrub

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/11/2011

I just discovered this scrub on special at my local pharmacy. I don't normally use drugstore skin care because for me, skincare is a ritual and I enjoy the packaging, fragrance and entire experience of luxury skincare. It's my little indulgence at the beginning and end of every day. Having said that though, if this product had been repackaged as a spa brand, I probably wouldn't be …Read more

Scrubs - Aesop - Purifying Facial Exfoliant Paste

May/29/2011

I don't know why I've not reviewed this product earlier, I was given a sample of this product a year ago and have since bought and used a full-sized tube after I loved the results. I have normal/combination skin that needs daily exfoliation because I like to use face oils to nourish my skin. This is probably one of the best scrubs I've come across and I'm quite a fanatic …Read more

Skincare - Face - Ella Bache - Masque Soir de Fete

May/24/2011

I bought this product because of the rave reviews on MUA and beauty magazines who call it 'the ultimate party mask'. As other reviewers have mentioned, it is a white, clay-based mask that is thick but easily spread. I don't notice any particular smell so it's relatively inoffensive to me at least. I had very high expectations for this product and it does brighten my skin and …Read more

Moisturizers - trilogy - Vital Moisturising Cream SPF15

Apr/29/2011

This review is for Trilogy's new vital moisturizing cream with SPF15. To be honest, I've never used the original formula before so I can't compare but this product, standing alone, is fantastic. It comes in a 50ml tube which retails for approximately $33AUD. From what I gather, this is slightly more expensive than the original but I think it's worth it for the added sun …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Unlisted Brand - Compagnie de Provence - Extra Pure Creme Pour Les Mains, Rose

Apr/16/2011

This little known French brand really deserves a special mention. I discovered this while I was in Singapore at a store called 'Escentuals' and I paid $22SGD for 75ml. The tube it's housed in is clear plastic with large pink font (the colour of the font varies with the scent, e.g. pink for rose, orange for orangeflower).

I normally use L'Occitane or Crabtree and …

Scrubs - Sukin - Revitalising Facial Scrub

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/06/2010

I have repurchased this scrub about 3 or 4 times now as it is a solid performer for the price tag. I can't say I know of any other organic, carbon neutral brand that sells such nice products at this price point. Definitely filling a gap in the market. The scrub smells pretty much like every other Sukin product, it has that vanilla, tangerine/ mandarin fragrance, which I really like …Read more

Cleansers - Pevonia Botanica - Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/06/2010

I bought this exfoliator based on the reviews here and I absolutely love it. I was looking for an exfoliator that emulated the effects of a scrub I had during a hot towel facial and this was as close as I could get. Aesop's new exfoliator is also pretty good but a bit harsher and more expensive ($50 for 75g). This has jojoba beads that really help get rid of flakiness and fight any small …Read more

Cleansers - trilogy - Cream Cleanser

Sep/14/2010

I am on my second bottle of this cleansing cream, which is amazing, because I generally have fairly resilient skin which means I can product hop like mad and therefore, even if I have the intention to repurchase, I rarely ever do. This is a winner on all fronts for me, it's organic, smells fantastic, melts away my makeup (I wear pretty much everything except foundation on a daily basis) and …Read more
