Fenty Beauty Mattemoiselle Plush Matte Lipstick are retailing at S$28 are available in all Sephora Singapore in store and online.
You know how most cleanser that you use give you a very “squeaky clean” feeling in which I do honestly prefer, well this does not do that. What this gentle cleanser does is that you know your face is being cleanse without feeling like it removes every bit of moisture from your skin hence it’s definitely gentle enough on the skin. Basically, it live up to it name!If you are looking into a lightweight moisturizer, then this is the one. As for me, it’s a little too light and I’m not sure how well it will suit sensitive skin because I do found that if I just squeeze something out of my face and when this lotion touches it, it actually sting a little and that’s something that I don’t enjoy. Hence, my least favorite of this range to be honest.This is definitely one of my favorites as first of all, it’s oil-free and has a matte finish. It pumps out like light serum texture and after you applied on skin it blend out matte quickly. I found this to be a really good base before any makeup foundation as it’s doesn’t cause any cakey-ness. The product packaging I must say is well-made in the sense that one proper pump has the right amount of product dispense. I personally use this in the day before apply the next products below which goes hand in hand together.
This corrector is literally a perfect product for lazy people like me! I use this right after applying the Quick Matte Moisturizer above. It goes on my skin pretty well, its again oil-free/matte and lastly I get the protection as well as colour correction for my skin! Since it feels matte on the skin and it colour corrects your skin tone, you can easily opt this as a makeup based if you want the most natural looking makeup look. An easy favorite of the range that I would recommend!
If you know me, you would know that I LOVE scrub! Apart from getting rid of dead skin, exfoliating your skin helps to keep them baby smooth. The only problem that many would face is over scrubbing it because sometime, the particles in the scrub might be too rough on the skin. Well, this particular one isn’t too rough because the particles is fine, I can use this 3 to 4 times a week without feeling like its too harsh on my skin hence I really enjoy using this product. Side note, it’s easy to wash off the product too!This is a simple swatch of the products and I’ve used all these for almost 2 weeks straight without using other products in order to get a better feel of how I enjoy them. Do note that the products may work differently on different skin so I hope you give it try and see if you enjoy them as much as I do!

Reflections Organics, founded by Nerissa is a local homegrown brand that’s organic, eco-friendly and cruelty-free makeup line. The colour pigmentation is on point and certainly impressed me upon trying it out myself. Reflections Organics consist a diverse range of highly pigmented and long lasting makeup from Anti-aging BB cream, mineral powder, highlighters, blush and the list goes on and on.
Each product is formulated with up to 90% USDA certified organic ingredients, while providing the wholesome natural nourishment for skin.
Since our skin also absorbs any chemicals in the cosmetics, Reflections Organics aims to protects your health as well as fragile ecosystems of the Earth with detailed attention for environmentally-friendly packaging such using soy-based ink for labels or translucent boxes to reduce printing wastage and recyclable pouches for packaging.
Their products are of quality so you get what you pay for. I use to think that organic products are not as pigmented until I’ve tried out Reflections Organics makeup that really change my persective. The two products that I’ve been using are the Sheer Mineral Bronzer and Mineral Eye Shadow. Since they are both really highly pigmented, I really only need a small amount of products in each use. The texture is very smooth and glides on the skin easily. The first shade on the top is the bronzer and the shade in the bottom is the eye shadow.
Reflections Organics believe in giving back to the less-privileged families hence Reflections is a supporter to the children of needy families in Christian Life Church in Cebu, Bantayan since the brand’s inception through donating a portion of profits made into providing for their education and livelihood.

Here’s what I have to say
Firstly, it my first ever Chemical Peeling treatment which is done at Charismata Aesthetics. I was kind of worried at first since I’m in the mid of having a breakout as well as areas that are recovering hence, the idea of “Chemical Peel” sounds a little daunting to me. I even double confirm to ensure that with my skin condition, it isn’t gonna have a bad effect.
For Chemical Peeling based on my Beauty Therapist Kerlyn, she shared that the basic amount of acid use is around 35%. Since it’s my first try, she went with that amount. The acid at most should NEVER exceed 60% caused that would eventually burn the skin. (interesting to know)
Secondly, many would have asked does it hurt? For me, no. At 35%, you can feel a little bit of tingly effect but certainly not burning for me. I particularly enjoy the process because halfway through, I fall asleep. What woke me up was the COLD acne control relief mask that has Aloe Vera and a strong hint of Mint which is super cooling~ Instant refreshing!
Even though chemical peeling sound strong, it’s surprising quite mild on my skin, so mild that I would prefer a little stronger because the usual kind of facial that I’ve been before would go through the process of squeezing out the clogged pores. Which is why it hurts but I do prefer most my pore getting unclogging hence I didn’t mind enduring the pain.
As for chemical peeling, it perfect for people who doesn’t want to deal with any pain; have sensitive skin or even severe acne skin. Because Kerlyn shared that she used to have severe acne skin on her forehead area where she would go to doctors, go on pills and spend tons of money but what in the end really works for her was chemically peeling. Now if you look at her, you would not believe she used to have problematic skin.
. In my opinion, is best to go Chemical Peel Treatment a few times for long term result. Obviously, you can see the different after the first try where your skin is brighter, smoother and clearer, but if you want long term result then pampering yourself with Chemical Peeling would means better skin over time.
With all these said, if yourself or your friends are interested in trying out Chemical Peeling Treatment, 1 session is S$248 but Charismata Aesthetics is giving my readers 10% off if you quote my name!
