Review: Skin Aqua UV Silky Smooth Milk and UV Whitening Moisture Milk, The SPF50+ PA+++ Suncare That Provides A 3-in-1 UV Defense Protection

I started using sunblock really really late and till to date I’m still counting my blessing that I did not have any brown spots all these while. I do hoard things I like and sunblock is definitely one of it. There’s this thing between me and sunblock. I use it like skincare. I don’t skip sunblock unless I accidentally ter-apply makeup base, just like today oppss!

Did you know that most premature aging is caused by sun exposure? Which is why most people will tell you that sunblock is very important. Going out under the sun without any suncare protection each day will cause noticeable changes to the skin over the years, even for just a few minutes. Scary right? Did you notice that the weather nowadays are hotter than how it used to be a few years ago? That is because the ozone layer is depleting due to human doing and ozone hole was first spotted 25 years ago, and it’s getting bigger. UV rays can cause skin cancer and cataracts in humans and reproductive problems for fish, crabs, frogs including single-celled phytoplankton at the bottom of the ocean food chain.

How do we combat these UV rays? Simple. By using sunblock or sunscreen is definitely a prevention step. The No. #1 suncare brand in Malaysia – Sunplay introduces 2 new daily sunblock recently that provides 3-in 1 UV defense namely anti-UV, anti-aging and anti-dryness.

Review: Oxy Anti-Pimple Mark Gel, Recommended Solution To Pimple Mark Free Face

One of my biggest headache of all time is still pimple marks. I have no problem lighten the marks with whitening products but I can’t seems to get rid of it completely no matter what. It seems like I have a stubborn skin :(. Previously I bought and tried one of the acne scar gel from local pharmacy with a high hope but not only it doesn’t remove any marks but also gave me breakout.

When something similar but with a much more affordable price anti-pimple mark gel landed on my desk, I do not hesitate to give it a try. After all I seriously wanted to get rid of all those ugly marks!

I’m sure all of you have heard, used or know about Oxy. I still remember the old school days where I would buy Oxy anti-pimple cream for my pimples. That is what Oxy is famous for. Oxy Anti-Pimple Mark Gel is said to not only lighten pimple marks but also help to smoothen the skin while preventing blemishes as well as revitalizes the skin cells. With this new addition to the Oxy family…the anti-pimple skincare range is now complete!

Review: Uriage Hyséac Gentle Cleansing Gel, The Closest Dupe To My Favorite Cleansing Gel

Rather than my usual 1,000 to 2,000 words review, I’m going to keep this post short. I have people telling me that my product reviews are too detail which I can’t help but to raise an eyebrow. Aren’t review suppose to be in detail? Would you prefer to read half way cause I hate reading a review that are incomplete with just a few pictures that I need to google for another review. Well anyway everyone review differently. Like it or not I like mine to be IN DETAIL lol 😀

Anyway back to the cleansing gel. How I discover this Uriage Hyséac Gentle Cleansing Gel was quite funny. I had this from MIVVA March 2013 edition which means I’ve been keeping it for a few months. I keep a few cleanser near the sink and a few more in the bathroom. One of the cleanser near the sink ran out so I took Uriage Hyséac Gentle Cleansing Gel out from the storage to use. After that I took a short nap. I woke up a few hours later with my eye still closed, walked to the sink to wash my face with Uriage Hyséac Gentle Cleansing Gel. At that time I have a tube of Clarins Purifying Cleansing Gel near the sink as my morning cleanser. Half way through the cleansing I stopped, open one eye to check if I got the right cleansing gel. It was Uriage one alright but how come it smells like Clarins? I stoned in front of the sink, with cleanser and hands on my face for a few minutes before I took another sniff of the cleanser. That is when I realized I found the exact dupe version of the now extinct Clarins Purifying Cleansing Gel. Well maybe not 100% but 98% 😀
