Sunscreen - Farmacy - Green Screen Daily Environmental Protector Broad Spectrum SPF 30 with Echinacea Green Envy

The pros are that this is a physical sunscreen that does not leave a whitecast and does not irritate your eyes if your eyes happen to water during the day.

The downside is that you do need to work this product into your skin - it doesn't 'glide' on, unlike Asian sunscreens. I could also feel it sitting on the skin, so I only wore this sunscreen during cool days. …

Sunscreen - Colorescience - ALL CALM Clinical Redness Corrector SPF 50

A super-expensive tinted sunscreen that feels like spreading clay on your skin. And it sits on your face, so you need a really good oil cleanser to remove it at the end of the day. Whilst the heavy clay-like texture does keep your skin matte during the day, it will feel too suffocating and uncomfortable when worn during the summer. For people with sensitive skin, this sunscreen is unscented and …Read more

Masks - The Face Shop - Real Nature Olive Mask

A very moisturising sheet mask, in fact one of the most moisturising sheet masks I have used up until this point. Each packet contains a very generous amount of serum, but it's not messy or drippy when you put the mask on your face. Fragrance is very subtle and inoffensive. My favourite sheet mask from The Face Shop. Will buy again.

It's a really pleasant to use cleanser. Fresh, cucumber scent; elegant gel texture; and leaves skin smooth, soft and with a nice slip due to the oils in the ingredients.

Who is this cleanser not suited for?
- anyone looking for a squeaky clean finish
- if you want your cleanser to remove all traces of makeup. This is a gentle cleanser for no makeup days (or as a …

Lip Treatments - La Mer - The Lip Balm

Basically a sugary tasting version of Jack Black lip balm (<$10) in a less hygienic container. Save your money (and dirty fingers) and go for the Jack Black.

BB Cream - Lioele - Dollish Cera-V CC Cream SPF34/PA++

This product will replace your foundation and/or high-coverage Korean BB creams. Weightless and comfortable, it fills my pore craters without any effort, leaving me with perfect, poreless skin with a satin-matte finish. Just dab on concealer under the eyes and you're good to go.

My only quibble with this product is that it does cling onto any dry flakes on your face (this …

Shampoo - Unlisted Brand - R+Co Crown Scalp Scrub

3.0

Dec/03/2017

This is the first scalp scrub I've ever used. Whilst it smells great and I can see how the texture of this product exfoliates whilst also conditions your scalp, scalp scrubs are not for people with thick, long hair. I could barely work the product into the scalp.

I recommend the scrub if you have short or thin hair though.

Lip Treatments - Philosophy - Hope in a Stick

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/20/2016

This is a surprisingly effective and unique lipbalm that I'm a bit bummed to learn it's been discontinued by Philosophy.

The lowdown:
- Unscented, uncoloured, flavourless
- texture is like a stick lubricant. Glides on like silicone and silk. Not waxy.
- more hydrating than paraffin or beeswax-based lipbalms, but not as hydrating as applying eyecreams …

Masks - Kate Somerville - Eradikate Mask

4.0

May/08/2016

This is a really cool foaming mask that comes out as a gel but begins foaming upon contact with skin (like a mousse). So it feels tingly as the mousse is activated. Skin is definitely cleaner, brighter afterwards, and feels smooth without being tight.
