Treatments (Face) - CLARINS - HydraQuench Intensive Serum

Jul/23/2016

Clarins and I go way back. it was one of the very first skincare brands I tried and loved, but then I developed the roving eye syndrome and started trying out other brands.

Recently, I developed hives, thanks to an allergic reaction to an antibiotic. Having always been photosensitive (yes, I'm allergic to the sun), the hives made the photosensitivity worse, leaving me with red …

Treatments (Face) - COSRX - Galactomyces 95 Whitening Power Essence

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/10/2016

Am currently on my second bottle! I used to be a huge SK-II FTE fan, having used bottle after bottle for over 10 years. But the Cosrx Galactomyces Essence has made me switch camps.

For one, the Cosrx essence is pretty much scentless while the FTE stinks. Secondly, the Galactomyces Essence sinks in quickly without tackiness and doesn't irritate my skin at all.

As much …

Treatments (Face) - COSRX - Acne Pimple Master Patch

HG. HG. HG.

I get the occasional blemish, and when I do, it's a full-on, huge zit. These pimple patches really suck the life out of those zits and flatten them within three days.

I've tried Nexcare pimple patches. I suppose those ones work great on those with drier skin, but the oils on my face will move those patches and they usually end up on my pillow case the …

Gels/ Soaps - Johnson & Johnson - PH 5.5 Body Wash With Moisturisers

Mar/10/2016

One of the most underrated drugstore shower creams ever. I used to use L'occitane shower gels but the husband has taken a liking to trawling the drugstores near his workplace and one day lugged home two refill packs of these.

They are creamy, with a non-offensive fragrance and moisturise my skin so well! I suffer from KP on my upper arms, and this did not aggravate the bumps. It …

Blush - Sleek MakeUP - MakeUP Blush - Rose Gold

5.0

Nov/09/2015

A very pretty coral blush with extremely subtle golden shimmer! I find it difficult to wear heavily pigmented blushes as I'm not that good at applying makeup but with my lunasol cheek brush, it just picks up the right amount of product and applies so beautifully on the cheeks - I'm paler than NC15 and every time I wear this out I get compliments. I'm also own Nars Orgasm but I find …Read more

First up, isn't the packaging gorgeous? Sorry, couldn't resist putting it out there first! :)

The product inside is as lovely as the packaging itself, i picked this up at duty free in haste as I just realized I had forgotten to pack a setting powder just before heading back to see my grandma - one needs to look good for grandmas!

It certainly isn't the most …

Eye Shadow - Marc Jacobs - Marc Jacobs Plush Shadow Palette Lolita

If you are after heavily pigmented shadows, look away. You are better off heading in the direction of Urban Decay or Inglot instead.

However, if you are looking for beautifully blendable eyeshadows with medium-to-heavy but not over the top neutral eyeshadows, this may just be the one for you.

I'm no professional makeup artist, and I still struggle to blend eyeshadow …

Toners - Melvita - witch hazel floral water

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/09/2015

Melvita's floral waters sure are a treat, I've tried all of them and my favorites are the witch hazel and Rose floral waters.

Even though I've got combination / Oily skin, using this product everyday does have a tendency to dry my cheeks out. I also ought to mention that I do not use this as a toner. Instead, I use this as a face mist prior to using facial …

Toners - Melvita - Rose Extraordinary Water

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/09/2015

This is a hyaluronic acid-packed essence / toner / lotion. Its texture is more viscous than that of a regular toner, pretty similar to the "sticky" texture of La Mer's Treatment Lotion and Hada Labo's lotion.

I have tried most of these "waters", as Melvita puts it and I have to say this didn't break me out the way Hada Labo did (it really clogged my …

Treatments (Face) - Unlisted Brand - MV Organic Skincare Rose Plus Booster

Created with Sketch.

Nov/07/2015

Facial oils and I did not go well together until I discovered this gem. Previously, I've tried various facial oils from brands such as Melvita, Trilogy and Kiehl's but all didn't quite agree with my skin... Until this came along. The MV Organic Skincare range has quite the cult following in the UK, and here I am wondering why no one on MUA has mentioned this brand yet! …Read more
