Introducing For Beloved One Melasleep Whitening Ethyl Ascorbic Acid

Whenever I talks about skincare, whitening wasn't always on top of my list. To me, it's not really a skin friendly range of skincare for sensitive or acne prone skin. The ingredients for radiance/brighter/fairer skin can be a bit harsh or "too rich" for problematic skin (base on personal experiences.. maybe your skin may react differently as mine).

Anyway, if I wanna try some whitening products.. I will always go back to the brands that I have no issue with. For beloved One are one of the skincare brands that are made suitable for sensitive skin and I personally find that their products are pretty mild yet effective.

Make Up For Ever Step 1 Skin Equalizer

Make Up For Ever launched their New Skin perfecting primers : Step 1 Skin Equalizer ... This range is more then just a base, it helps to prepares the skin for make-up application and each new primer is an equalizer that will helps to balance the skin tone and texture for that desired perfect complexion.

Cool isn't it??? I like seeing a huge range of products released in ONE collection... to ensure that everyone will find one or more primers that will suit the need and skin type/condition/texture.

Review on MU MIEUX Collagen MU Nutrition+ by Mary Chia

I have been enjoyed collagen drinks even since I saw some good results after trying it for one whole month a few years back (Yes... you do need to take it once per day for a period of more then a month to really see and feel positive results).  I strongly believe that we need collagen and beauty supplement (after we hit 25yrs old) to have(maintain) radiance and smooth skin beside skincare and water.

So every now and then I will have some collagen drinks/supplement for a period of 2 to 3 weeks. I have a lot of skin issues (I'm a problematic person) and I have been taking Chinese medication and or chinese supplements, I do need to free up my days so that I can have my chinese medication for my eczema (I try not to mix supplement and medication).

So my point was that I jump on the opportunity to try out Mu Mieux Collagen MU Nutrition+ by Mary Chia. Formulated with BHN (Marine) Collagen, enriched with Ceramide and Apple extract.

Yves Rocher Eclat radiance rinsing vinegar

Yves Rocher Eclat radiance rinsing vinegar, when I learned about this product.... I have been thinking whether I will need it. I don't like putting or using more products on my hair, just a balancing/oily control shampoo daily and condition my hair once a week(or maybe twice a month? lolx)

Have been reading about the goodness of vinegar on eczema skin and hair... I think I'm willing to give this a try. And this doesn't smell like vinegar at all.. it has a very nice raspberry scent. Got this at the West Gate's outlet (Yves Rocher reminds me of The Body Shop).

2015 January BellaBox : The Beauty Spot

Googled around and found out that this month Bellabox theme was "The beauty spot"... I think they miss out the box card in my box (I don't have much information on each products... what you see below is what I've received in the January box.) Anyway, this month box look pretty good... I like the mixture of face, body and hair products.

SUNPLAY Skin Aqua UV Watery Essence and UV Watery Gel with SPF 50+ PA ++++

Whenever I spotted a new sunblock in Watsons (or any departmental stores, I say Watsons because I check out Watsons more often then any other stores), got it as a gift or brands asking whether I wanna try their new sunblock... I will get really excited! You can imagine how sad I feel when I have to avoid sunblock when my skin was having some allergies reaction. Anyway, I'm glad that my skin is almost back to normal and I can use sunblock/sunscreen again!

Not too long ago, SUNPLAY launches 2 innovation suncare products that provides perfect protection for Singapore humid hot weather with strong sunlight all year round. Both Skin Aqua UV Watery Essence and UV Watery Gel have the highest PA ++++ (The highest UVA protection index in Japan) against aging UVA rays protection in the mass market. And what best was that they are very light, weightless texture that is quick dry and disperse sweat.

Elizabeth Arden Prevage Anti-aging treatment boosting cleanser

Prevage is one of the most talk about anti-aging brand - the products contains some really good active ingredients... especially "Idebenone" (a powerful ingredient to provides skin with maximum protection from the environmental assaults.).

For me clean skin is very important, we need to cleanse off all the impurites so that skincare we apply on will works it magic on our skin. And also prevent skin irritation.

Review on LB Cosmetics essential mineral foundation

It's been a while since I do a foundation (base products) review, I have been trying out quite a number of foundations(CC creams and BB creams)... I just don't have a decent skin(face) to show all because of my allergy issue.

I really hope that I won't have to talk about having allergy or irritation skin, but that's a part of me now... I have to learn to accept it and try to use products that will minimize the irritation.

To my surprise, most of the base products are quite skin friendly (the only irritation I got was mostly from sunblock and primer.. I bet was from the alcohol or fragrances contents). As for sunblock... sometimes I can use it without much irritation but on days when skin feel quite fragile... I will have itchy issue around the eye and mouth areas.

Anyway... when I feel that I can start applying.. LB Cosmetics essential mineral foundation was the 2nd products I've tried that doesn't cause any irritiation and it makes my skin look fresh, bright and flawless (kinda - from a normal distance).

Benefit NEW eye gel Puff Off!

I'm an eye-cream addict, I cannot goes by a day without any cream moisturizing products around my eye areas. Eye gel cannot make it cos it's too light unless I layer another creamy eye cream on top (if I need the cooling sensation on my tired under eyes.. I will apply eye gel and follow with eyecream).

Not a fan of under eyes' concealer because it is too drying for my under eyes...  it creases up badly under my eyes..... BUT, I do enjoy using Benefit Fake Up (best for a light brightening up under the eye areas.... not really a concealer more of a brightener). Anyway... I just happy to see another cute product from Benefit.

Benefit NEW eye gel Puff Off! instantly cools and help smooth out the tired eyes. Can be use under and ontop of makeup.

Review on bSoul Hydra-lip Lip Cream

Ever since my skin allergy issue back in July/Aug (which I'm still in the process of recovering)... my lips have becoming extra dry, irritated easily and have soreness, itchness on my philtrum too (Which I think is some kind of eczema, because it's sore, dry (flakey) redness, itchy and painful almost everyday! "sigh")

I have to apply lip balm (which had high contents of hydrating ingredients plus the waxy balm to helps keep my skin from drying and feeling tight!) on my lips and all over the skin between my lips and nose. It looks glossy and oily BUT the skin feel great.

So I'm quite excited to try out bSoul Hydra-lip Lip Cream... Since it's a hydrating lip cream because bSoul is a certified natural, eco-friendly skincare from Tuscany, Italy and 100% skin friendly.

Tarte Cosmetics LipSurgence Lip Tint in Romantic

Peoples who know me well or maybe read my blog long enough will know that I'm not a fan of applying lip products out during the day (unless I will in air-con places for the whole day :P)...  It just makes me feel really warm when I'm applying a waxing lip products on my lips (you know the sweat will start to form around the lips; chin; philtrum... ahhh... that uncomfortable feeling!)

But lately, I have been enjoying using some lip products on my lips ^_^ which doesn't makes me feel like I'm wearing a lipstick... I think lately the formulation of lip products have become less waxy... more and more moisturizing and feel quite comfortable on the lips....  even on our crazy humid hot weather!
