Lip Treatments - Elizabeth Arden - Eight Hour Cream Lip Protectant Stick

Jul/07/2016

I have just bought my second tube in no tint, and i must say there is a difference between the tint and no tint and the no tint one is WAY better. The no tint on really moisturises your lips and works as a great lipstick base too. I like that it glides on well, keeps lips moisturised, and doesn't leave you with a dry, dead-skin effect on the lips later on. Also, I like the scent that it has …Read more

Lips - SHISEIDO - Water in Lip

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/07/2016

I was so amazed by how good it was! It's only around US$3 at most (depending on the drugstore and discount available) and it left my lips feeling moist without the drying/ dead skin lips effect i get from most lip balms. It's a no frills, slim plastic screw tube in translucent pink. SO pretty. It has a slight cooling (from menthol maybe?) feeling upon application and is slightly …Read more

Concealers - MAKE UP FOR EVER - Full Cover Concealer

Created with Sketch.

Jul/07/2016

I know this is a concealer, but I basically use this as a foundation because my face is riddled in acne scares of various pink-maroon shades (really no exaggeration here). I use a full face primer, a little of this spread all over my face with my fingers and i go over individual spots again with my fingers (it's very build-able), followed by a powder and a setting spray and it lasts ALL day …Read more

Lip Treatments - Jurlique - Rose Love Balm

Jul/07/2016

I bought this at the airport just because I thought this could be like a nice smelling sort of everything balm. It came in a good quality metal little pot with a screw lid. This can be a bit hard to open if you move in and out of areas with highly fluctuating temperatures. Upon opening, I found the rose scent is natural but a bit strong initially. The smell dissipates quite quickly though. When …Read more

Conditioner - Alba Botanica - Very Emollient Leave-In Conditioner

Dec/31/2015

This is the best all natural conditioner I've used for my hair (save actual pure oils of course). My hair is naturally very dry, curly, frizzy, thick, shoulder length and I live in a tropical, humid environment all year round. I recently highlighted my hair and my hair is SO dry now. This leave in work just as good for me as other drugstore products already loaded with silicones, so it is …Read more

Dec/30/2015

My skin type: Oily, cystic acne prone, sensitive skin.

Experience with this: About a year, and I have used the Clarisonic Mia 2 for 1.5 years prior. Scarring improves significantly through exfoliation and improved circulation. Skin is clearer and plumper as skin better absorbs moisturisers and lotions :)

Use: Only at night before bed to make sure skin is clean and to …

My brother lives in a tropical, humid environment and plays lots of sports. Given his high metabolism and bigger build, he sweats A LOT, and he is very sensitive to his perspiration and body odour.

I saw this while in France and based on the advise of the pharmacist, got this for my bro.

He loves this. And he has tried everything from natural rock salts to chemically …

Nov/06/2013

I bought this while on holiday in France. Whether I was in the north or the south, loads of locals bought this in almost every pharmacy I went to. Curious, I decided to buy and try. It is listed as "Sensitive, normal to combination skin. Baby - Child - Adult. Moisturizes, protects, soothes".

As someone with sensitive, oily, acne prone skin, it's pretty hard for me to …

Sunscreen - Neutrogena - Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock SPF 30

Nov/06/2013

Application was smooth and the finish matte after application with NO white cast. Makeup goes on smoothly over it as well (liquid or powder foundation works fine).

However, with my oily, acne, sensitive skin, I was oily after an hour and my skin breaks out when using this. Shame because the finish it really nice.

I have resorted to using this product as a body moisturiser …

Sunscreen - Unlisted Brand - Ego Sunsense Daily Face Matte Formula SPF30

The one I used to use may be the older version. It was mattifying and also tinted.

I have acne, sensitive, oily complexion and it did not help mattify my skin one bit. IN fact, it made it oilier and made me breakout too :(
