Review – Jordan Samuel Skin Hydrate Serum

Instagram is really the death of my dear wallet! I first chanced upon Jordan Samuel Skin Hydrate Serum when I kept seeing it in the skincare routine of my favourite beauty bloggers on IG. When I went online to search for reviews of this product, there were so many positive comments on it so I took a chance on a relatively unknown indie skincare brand … Read More Review – Jordan Samuel Skin Hydrate Serum

Review – Hylamide SubQ Anti-Age Serum

I was introduced to the Deciem brand when I started seeing everybody in the beauty blogging scene raving about the Hylamide SubQ Anti-Age serum. Hylamide is a brand that focuses on well-formulated skincare with mid-range prices under the umbrella of the Deciem group. I’ve actually finished using one whole bottle of this serum and I’m ready to tell you what I think of it. … Read More Review – Hylamide SubQ Anti-Age Serum

Review – Black Chicken Remedies Love Your Face Serum

I was reading Caroline Hiron’s blog on Dehydration Week whereby she recommended some products to help with skin dehydration problems. One of the products which was highly recommended by her is the Black Chicken Remedies Love Your Face Serum. Coincidentally BorderFree was offering free shipping from Australian online shops so I grabbed the chance and bought this product from Adore Beauty (an Australian online … Read More Review – Black Chicken Remedies Love Your Face Serum

Review – Orbis UV Cut Sunscreen Super SPF 50 PA ++++

Hi guys! Today I would like to introduce you to another sunscreen which I’ve been using and also really liked a lot (a very close second to my holy grail!) – the Orbis UV Cut Sunscreen Super SPF 50 PA ++++ (seriously.. what is it with Japan and their weird super long product names?!). As usual, let’s check out its ingredients below. Ingredients CYCLOPENTASILOXANE, WATER … Read More Review – Orbis UV Cut Sunscreen Super SPF 50 PA ++++

Review – Stratia Liquid Gold

I chanced upon Stratia’s Liquid Gold when I was looking for a moisturiser with ceramides which would help my skin to better resist the drying effects of the retinol treatments that I was using, especially after my disastrous experiment with Differin and Benzoyl Peroxide. I was looking for something which would repair and fortify my skin since I believe that my skin barrier was … Read More Review – Stratia Liquid Gold

My Experiment with Differin 0.1% + Benzoyl Peroxide 2.5%

Before I decided to write this post, I’ve actually been debating with myself on whether I should even start writing this. The thing is that I’ve tried to use both products (the Differin 0.1% gel and the Benzoyl Peroxide 2.5%) in a way that’s never been indicated on the product packaging or its leaflet so it’s kind of an unorthodox method of using them. However, … Read More My Experiment with Differin 0.1% + Benzoyl Peroxide 2.5%

Step by Step Guide to Incorporating Actives for Your Skincare Routine

In my previous post whereby I talked about how to introduce actives to your skincare routine, I promised that I’ll give you a step by step guide on what to do. As I’ve already mentioned before (and also kept repeating) in my previous post, it’s best to take it slow when you want to add any actives to your skincare routine and give each … Read More Step by Step Guide to Incorporating Actives for Your Skincare Routine

Tips for Introducing Actives into your Skincare Routine

I’ve always been using actives in one form or another since a long time ago. However I only started a more regimented actives routine around last year when I started to notice some fine lines on my forehead and really want to step up my anti-ageing game. Now I do love my beautiful face oils and creams but in my opinion, actives are a … Read More Tips for Introducing Actives into your Skincare Routine

Review – Biotherm Aquasource Gel

In Singapore, although we do not really have the traditional 4 seasons like spring, summer, autumn and winter, I’ve always thought otherwise. To me, Singapore do have 4 seasons: hot, hotter, hottest and haze season (LOL.. Thanks to our neighbour Indonesia..). As we approach the middle of the year, Singapore has actually gotten even hotter with average temperatures during the day hovering around 32°C … Read More Review – Biotherm Aquasource Gel

Review of NIOD’s Masks – Mastic Mast, Flavanone Mud and Myrrh Clay

NIOD has a range of very interesting masks which sounds pretty intriguing if you read their description. It seems like all 3 of them are cleansing masks but they have different functions. So how did they fare? NIOD Mastic Mast Masque First up, the Mastic Mast is described as a transparent masque for efficient, yet innocuous, cleaning and visible refinement of pores and impurities, … Read More Review of NIOD’s Masks – Mastic Mast, Flavanone Mud and Myrrh Clay

Review – Orbis Powder Wash+

Ever since I’ve read about how terrible abrasive scrubs are for your skin, I’ve gone cold turkey on all scrubs made with particles such as walnut shell powder like the famous St Ives Apricot scrub. Nowadays since I’m using acid toners daily, I don’t really see the need for a weekly scrub. However, there are times when I want to feel the instantaneous skin … Read More Review – Orbis Powder Wash+
