Antipodes Worship Superfruit Antioxidant Serum: Getting my daily shot of youth

As I get older, I get obsessed with maintaining youthful skin and that includes getting obsessed with anti-aging products. I’m blessed with a ‘complicated’ skin that are not dry therefore I didn’t need to be worry about wrinkles. I really like to get my hands on anti-aging products that works from the inside because I believe that is easier and more important than working on fixing what’s on the skin surface. This is why Antipodes Worship Superfruit Antioxidant Serum is right down my alley.

Antipodes Worship Superfruit Antioxidant Serum
Funnily, I am not quite sure what this Antipodes Worship Superfruit Antioxidant Serum is all about. I started using on the same day I got it because Antipodes is one of my favourite organic brand. Not that I’ve tried a lot but once I found a brand that I like, I stick to it. So have I found out what this Worship is? You bet I have. Worship Superfruit Antioxidant Serum is a water-based serum accenting the antioxidant potency of New Zealand-grown superfrui that helps the skin to maintain its youthfulness. It did it by fortifying skin cells against early ageing and free radical damage. Now that’s not too complicated to understand, isn’t it? :D

Bdellium Pink Bambu Series: Dupe comparison with my other favourite brushes. The closest dupe I’ve found so far!

I’ve always known of Bdellium Tools in iHerb because I stumbled upon the brand when I was searching for blending brushes last year. Bdellium Tools Studio Line, if you know Bdellium well, is the most well-known brush line due to it’s striking and unique yellow handle. I’m not a fan of yellow. I cannot see myself using yellow brushes and I didn’t know what Bdellium Tools brand is all about. When I watched CoffeeBreakwithDani haul on Bdellium Tools, I WANT THEM. I do not care if it’s yellow. It was her repurchase as spare brushes so I knew these brushes must be good. I guess luck was on my side because iHerb had a weekly 20% special on Bdellium Tools! I hauled back six Bdellium Tools Pink Bambu Series last week and this is what I think about Bdellium Tools brushes so far.

Bdellium Pink Bambu Series
I have a lot of face brushes including a few new Zoeva brushes which are still sitting in the box comfortably so my purchase was mainly on the eye brushes. Having said that, I’m also on the lookout for a dupe of my most favourite powder brush of all – the Real Techniques Buffing Brush, which is not available to purchase individually. I thought I’ve found the perfect dupe a few months ago with ELF Studio Powder Brush but it was not quite the same. Needless to say, that brush’s ferrule came off from the handle and I’ve repurchased a new one, which is still sitting in the drawer because I want to find one similar to Real Techniques Buffing Brush before breaking into the new ELF Studio Powder Brush.

Estée Lauder Crescent White Full Cycle Brightening: Say goodbye to dull skin and hello brighter even-toned skin!

I’ve been secretly using the full range of the NEW Estée Lauder Crescent White Full Cycle Brightening for months now. I’ve also secretly wean off from using acne mark gel and a few other skin care brand/range to the basic anti-aging and brightening skin care regime. Recently I received lots of compliment that I have good skin although personally I hated the large pores and acne marks. I was told by a BA during a makeover session that good skin to them is all about the skin texture refinement, radiance and healthy skin. According to them, I have plump, bouncy skin, glowing complexion and I don’t have pimples or wrinkles. I was secretly giggling because I was using a brand that is not theirs :P

Last year I trial CyberWhite HD range and it gave me fantastic result. You can click on this link for the review. This year, Estée Lauder came out with a whole new Crescent White and I get to try the whole range!

Estee Lauder Crescent White
Despite my professed love for CyberWhite HD and how it totally changed my brightening skin care routine, there are many who doesn’t quite like the range as much as I do due to the slippery texture and scent. I personally have no issue with that and I managed to work around it but for those who are not happy with those issues, well good news! Estée Lauder heard you and your feedback because I find that this new Crescent White is the improvised formulation of CyberWhite HD, if not better. Whatever you complaint before are rectified through this Crescent White range.
