SENSITIVE SKIN PEOPLE STAY AWAY! I received a sample of this and thought that Lancome is gonna be alright so silly me didn’t do a patch test. Also didn’t occur to me to visit this page and read all the warnings!

Result: swollen face, hospital visit for a corticosteroid jab, one week off work to get better. It felt like any other cream and admittedly, I trusted the brand and didn’t go …

I have eczema that occasionally flares up by giving me flaky skin and this cream takes the flakes away! It does a great job sealing moisture on my skin and preventing it from evaporating. I go in with a heavier hand during winter and at night.

One thing it does is pill my makeup when I apply too much of it, so I don’t use this with makeup if I apply this on a dry day. I recently had a …

I’ve had oily lids for as long as I remember and always needed to bring a cotton bud to rub off the eyeshadow and eyeliner that crease on my hooded lids when I’m out. I’ve refrained from buying a primer because I was afraid It won’t work and I can’t return products where I’m from. And also because it’s a pain to add another step to my quick make-up routine.

I’f decided to take the …

Treatments (Face) - John Masters Organics - vitamin C anti-aging face serum

I’ve been looking for a vitamin c serum that’s available in Europe (I used a korean brand serum back when I lived in Asia) and I think this will be my go-to night serum.

I’ve been using this for over two weeks and I’ve already noticed that my skin tone is less dull and more even. I use one pump of this serum only at night over my Clinique toner and under pure argan oil. That’s it! When …

I kicked myself for not reading the reviews before purchasing this. I needed something with hyaluronic acid as the weather’s getting drier so I thought that instead of getting high-end stuff, the drugstores might have something for me.

It didn’t break me out, but WHY ARE THERE GLITTERY THINGS IN THE SERUM?! I am pretty freaked out about this and now am refusing to use it on my face …

I always find myself reaching out to this trusty tub during my dry skin seasons. Contrary to popular belief, it does not clog pores. The petroleum molecules are too big to clog tiny human pores!

Yes it does not moisturise, but using oils alone dries out my skin as well. Did some further research and found that oils do not penetrate into the deeper layers of our skin, hyaluronic acid …

Jan/09/2018

I had an eczema flare-up on my skin, with itchy and dry-flaky raised bumps on my skin. I decided to give this a go since it says it will soothe irritated skin. To my disappointment, upon application, it stung my skin for almost a minute, which was NOT soothing at all!!! I ended up switching back to my trusty Avene Cold Cream and a traditional ice compress to soothe my hot and itchy …Read more

This is my to go product when I have really bad eczema flare-ups on my face and body. I get itchy bumps and dry skin when that happens and this seems to be the only thing that can normalise and soothe the itch on my skin, including flare-ups on my eyelids.

I’ve tried raw shea butter, camelia oil, cocoa butter, physiogel, but they don’t soothe the irritation and itch as well as …

Dec/16/2017

First application today for 7 hours and I am rather fond of this I was looking for something that is less heavy than foundation with decent coverage and moisture for my dry skin.

I applied this with my fingers and upon my first application, I could feel it just sitting on my skin (too much silicones, maybe?) and needed to properly blend this so that it looks even. One lippie off for …

I received a sample of this primer from Sephora and tried it on for a friend's wedding.

I loved the light lemongrass scent which disappeared after I applied this on my face after my usual skin prep routine (cleanse, avene water, lotion, serum, moisturiser, eye cream, sunscreen).

I went on with my usual special occassion Chanel Vitalumiere foundation and the usual …
