I have come to a realization that oil suspending in water type of skincare is somehow not doing my skin good.
I don’t know what is it that I am currently having massive breakouts from a similar product, which also has oil suspending in a serum. At the same time, I was also using this Hada Labo Hydrating Oil-in Lotion. Let me tell you something – this lotion has got to be the most exciting product that I’ve gotten from the mail because I saw this at the drugstore earlier and I was super interested with it. I like beauty oil and especially now that my skin is more mature and more dehydrated that anything that has oil in it will automatically be in my favourite list.
I have a soft spot for facial cotton. Good, huge, fluffy and soft facial cotton. I used to buy RMK one a lot until I discovered this ALBION Japan Facial Cotton – L [Soft]. Goodbye RMK, Hello ALBION!
I went for the official launch of ALBION last year and went home with their iconic Skin Conditioner Essential along with other product. Then a few days later the product manager kindly mailed over a pack of ALBION Facial Cotton – L [Soft] because I was told I could benefit the full effect of using Skin Conditioner Essential with the facial cotton. I finished the whole pack and I have bought another one since 🙂 . It is only these few days I restarted the ALBION 2-step skin toning, and hence restarted using this ALBION Facial Cotton – L [Soft]. Yes, I stopped this routine a few months ago to try other products. Then I remembered how much I love this facial cotton and the ALBION products.
I remember a few months ago I was casually browsing at Watsons Kajang and I stopped briefly because I saw this Hada Labo Kiwamizu Lotion on the shelf and I was curious at it. I do not remember Hada Labo having such product so I assumed it was new. Yeap. It is new alright.
Here is a major throwback. Eau Thermale Avène; my first ever full set skincare products that I bought when I was 19 years old. I still remember the day I brought a few hundred ringgit with me to Mid Valley. I headed to Guardian and I stood in front of Avène shelf. The lady who attended to me was super nice. That day I decided to get a full range of Avène to treat my acne skin. I cannot remember how I get to know Avène but it was probably from sampling exercise prior before that. And I remember I paid RM400+, went home with tons of products and samples. Mind you Avène samples are in mini tubes and bottles, not sachets. At that time, splurging a few hundred on skincare is considered a lot for a 19 year old. But I did it anyway. It was my first skincare. I even mentioned about my first love in this review post on Avène Sérénage Nutri-Redensifying Vital Serum & Day Cream! 😀
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 😛
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!
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.
As a part of my journey into a more natural skin care products, I thought it only make sense if I were to use equally natural product to remove my makeup as well. I have the perfect product for quite a few months now. Recently I’ve been trying out this A’kin Rose & Geranium Pure Facial Creamy Cleanser & Toner, a best seller in the A’kin range to remove my face makeup as well as to cleanse and tone at the same time.
On the box it said that this is a day and night gentle cleanser, a face and eye makeup remover and it contain witch hazel that mildly tones the skin for dry as well as sensitive skin. Oh cool. It’s a 3-in-1 product. I love time saving products 😀
