Was out with my friend Charis and she introduced and recommended a few beauty products. Thus, I went to shop and BAM, unknowingly, I spent $53,70 on erm… 3 products! Will share later!
So since I’m going to blog about the beauty products I’ve bought, might as well share with you guys what I’ve been using so far right. Not that my complexion is fantastic or what, but I just thought the products are not bad.
My brother bought this cream for me, it’s mainly to hydrate super dry and sensitive skin. All along, my face was more prone to the oily side, but after I went to a dermatologist and used the acid serum thingy, my skin got super scaly and dry. So I started using this cream above and yeap, it’s super moisturizing. Dare not use it TOO often (say twice a day) cuz I’m afraid that my skin will be super oily. (it’s already back to its oily self now). Normally I’ll use this at night. Will rate this an 8 out of 10 cuz it’s super hydrating but its a little oily at times.
Just bought this cause Charis highly recommended it to me. Have yet to try it, but am gonna try it later (for a jog). All along in my 21 years of life, I’ve never use any sunblock on my face (except for little trips to the pool with samantha a few years back. used hers.) Then it strike to me one day when my colleague said, “the most important item to me is sunblock. In Singapore, you’ll die without Sunblock!” I took it with a pinch of salt as I thought I’m pretty fair, so I could afford to tan. But theeeeeen, she said “Oh. it’s not only for the whitening part. I swear by it cuz your skin will age super fast and it will develop dark spots if you don’t use sunblock.” TADAAAAAA. DARK SPOTS?! WRINKLY FACE?! NOOOOOO! Better safe then sorry. Must definitely protect my face in this merciless Singapore Sun.
Okay I’ve been using ZA for awhile, along with my Physiogel. Wasn’t totally impressed by it (like the bloggers (etc Xiaxue and Qiuqiu claimed) But nonetheless, it’s non oily and feels very refreshing when I put it. But I don’t see like my skin improving of any sort. So yeah, will rate this a 7.
This is the Sunblock I’ve bought, with the packaging on. It costs around $14.90 and I hope it’s good.
Okay here comes my main buy, it costs $19.90 (price varies depends on where you buy it, North point having sales at $17.90 but I didnt buy there) So anyway, Charis said that this can reduce eye bags! Eye bags are the main problem I’m facing, seriously, my puffy eyes and eye bags reduced the size of my eyes like hell. I can’t even smile nowadays as my eyebags will be bigger then my eyes -.- So yea, she said she’d been using it for 2 weeks and she can see the results. Not bad not bad, I hope it works on me too! Lets see, on the packaging, it claims to :
1) Reduce fine lines and wrinkles
2) Reduce dark circles
3) Reduce crow feet
4) Reduce Puffiness (PLEASE!!!! I NEED IT!)
5) Smoothe uneven texture and evens out the skin tone
6) Moisturize your eyes to reduce dryness (well, no need for this. my eyes are oily enough)
So yea, will definitely do a review soon. Hope it’s a good one!
No intention of buying this, but yeah. There’s SALES! Bought this limited edition (case plus Maybelline’s Mineral Pure.PACT plus a little foundation pouch) at only $19.90!!! OMG! $19.90 is like the price for the refill, so to say, I got a free case and pouch! Not bad right! Have yet to try Maybelline’s foundation before, but have always wanted to try their mineral series and it claim to be less harmful then the normal ones. Have always been using ZA, shall start using this soon and do a review about it! As usual, tempted by the marketing claims they put on their packaging, it says:
1) Breathable Coverage, smooth finish that will NEVER clog your pore. hmmm never?! LIAR!
2) More Hydrated Skin, 100% moisturizing micro-minneral pigments and other natural moisturizing agents hydrate your skin and refine fine lines.
3) Suitable for sensitive skin.
4) SPF 30!
And it has a shout out saying “Healthy Perfecting”! I can only say, stop exaggerating!
Have always been using SIMPLE’s product. Like cleansing, scrub and even mask. But the mask no use one lah. Feels the same aft using, so i threw mine away. But the toner is pretty good I guess. Though I have no idea how to define a good or bad toner. I mean all toner refreshes your skin right? And it doesn’t have much visible benefits right? So yea. I like it cause it’s refreshing and well, relatively reasonably priced. Bought it at around 7 or 8 plus, confirm less then 10 bucks lah. So I’ll rate this a 8/10.
Yea as I mentioned above, I’ll definitely do a review. This is how the eye cream looks like. It’s a small bottle, hopefully it can last up till 2-3 months?
Lastly, this is how the Maybelline Limited Edition pack looks like. Quite cute I guess. $19.90 cheap somemore. I like!
With that, I shall end my post. Hopefully all the claims that the products have are true (though I’m quite skeptical) So yea. Better skin everyone!
