I Just Don’t Get These Products

Before I make a skincare purchase, I always make sure I do a decent amount of research: read up the reviews, and read off the ingredient list. However, there are still times that I jump on a product that suppose to be the cult favorite, but end up not working well for me. It just comes to show that skincare is very personal, and something that works for others, may not work for you. I have accumulated a few disappointments, please allow me to tell…

Simple Micellar Cleansing Water & Hydrating Cleansing Oil Review

When I finished the last few drops of the Gariner Micellar Cleansing Water, which has been a long time favorite of mine, as you see me confess my love for it here, I decided to try something new and picked up the Simple Micellar Cleansing Water as well as the Simple Hydrating Cleansing Oil. The Simple Micellar Cleansing Water has gained its fame as the drugstore alternative for Bioderma when it’s launched a while back, and the hydrating cleansing oil is a relatively new addition…

Empty Review: Belif The True Cream Moisturizing Bomb

Belif is one of those brands that I always pass by in shopping malls without giving too much thought, until I tried this True Cream Moisturizing Bomb, and now I want to try pretty everything this brand has to offer. Even though this is just a deluxe sample, but 10ml is enough for me to tell how well it goes on with my skin and definitely justifies its own well-deserved review. Package: It comes in a jar that looks simple and understated, no crazy/creative design…

Empty Review: Sarah Chapman Overnight Facial

I’m starting a new series here where I’ll do a review for the products I’ve used up. Because for one, for someone that likes to constantly testing out the new and the latest, finishing up a product is a pretty big accomplishment; for two, it gives me enough time to form a conclusion; and for three, I really need to clean up my stash and you know… use them – I thought this series could be my drive to finish up more products. So, the…

A Few Skincare Lessons I Wish I Knew Earlier

In case I haven’t mentioned this before, I have always been a skincare frenetic since I was in high school, when I would save up pocket money to buy sunscreen. But I didn’t know some important skincare lessons back then – it’s been a trial and error process. Now I of course understand to have good skin, it’s not just about having the right products for your skin type, it’s also about finding the right skincare regime and having the right habits. So I thought…

Post Travel Skin Rescue Routine

Now, it’s going to sound really weird: my skin gets better during the trip, probably because it actually likes the change of temperature and humidity (Singapore is HOT and HUMID all day, every day). But when I’m back from travelling, I usually notice my skin has slightly larger pores, more redness, and dehydrated. In short, a bit confused and angry. So the day after returning, I would always go through this post travel skin rescue routine, which doesn’t involve that many products. It has been…
