Product Review : Physiogel Daily Defence Facial Care

As someone who loves outdoors, I’m constantly exposed to environmental aggressors and modern pollutants which may potentially cause my skin to be more sensitive.

When I say environmental aggressors, they would mean the day-to-day environmental factors we face, such as – UV rays, haze and cigarette smoke. We face these pollutants daily, begging the question: How do we defend our skin against these harmful pollutants?IMG_1830

Here’s a solution! It’s Physiogel Daily Defence Facial Care range to the rescue!!!!!

From the left to right: 

DD Protective Day Cream (Light), DD Protective Day Cream (Rich), DD Replenishing Night Cream and DD Gentle Facial Cleanser.

I recalled when I first received this media package and posted it on my IG story, someone actually DM’ed me and said, omg this series is ultra good!!! You must try it!!!!

I did and here’s my review on the products!

 

IMG_1809

 

I’ve been using the facial cleanser to clean off the light makeup on my skin for the past 2 weeks. The formula is light, fragrance-free (super useful for people with ultra sensitive skin), and non-greasy. This cleanser does exactly what a cleanser should, and I have no complaints about it! 

As you can see from the picture above, it helped to remove that much of impurities – in this case my makeup – in just one swipe.

This cleanser purifies and refreshes effectively without stripping off the moisture on your face, leaving your skin soft and supple.

Next up, it’s the Daily Defence Day Cream.

You know how day creams can be heavy and uncomfortable after application? However, this cream is good for sensitive skin because it is light, not heavy on the skin and most importantly, it blocks out harmful UVA and UVB rays.

UVA rays causes aging (I HATE THIS!) and UVB rays causes burning and pigmentation. Hence, having a day cream that blocks out both UVA and UVB rays minimizes the number of products I use before heading out. This saves me a lot of time.

There are two types of Daily Defence Day Cream to choose from– Light and Rich. I prefer the Light one as I feel my skin takes lighter formulas better. However, I would recommend the usage of the richer formula when you are in a cold and dry country.

Moisturizing is a vital step in my skincare regime. I can safely say that I have used a couple of Physiogel moisturizers and I have no qualms about this range at all!

IMG_1828

 

Here’s me with no foundation – only the Daily Defence Day Cream Light. This gave a dewy look effect on my skin. Don’t you guys agree?

Key points: 

  •  It has UVA/UVB protection 
  •  BioMimic Technology repairs the skin’s natural barriers by mimicking the structure of our skin – helping to retain the moisture in our skin 
  •  Protects our skin from damaging free radicals 

I like how I have found a product range that suitable for sensitive skin. Physiogel did not disappoint and totally nailed that!

 

 

Review: The Moisturizers Co. – Cell Regenerate Gel Cream / Brightening Moisturizing Cream

The Moisturizers Co.™ creates a new age moisturizer that penetrates the skin deep with it’s active ingredients specially formulated by the moisturizers experts – skincare chemists.

IMG_2258

Was sent a day moisturizer (top)Cell Regenerate Gel Cream with Mulberry and Squalane and the night moisturizer (bottom)Brightening Moisturizing Cream with Arbutin and Vitamins.

& Oh! BTW!!! The Moisturizers Co.™ is a Singaporean brand!!! It is always a good thing to support local! & Trust me when I say that their moisturizers are LEGIT stuff!

You know how humid Singapore is and having heavy products on the skin is just a no-no? I am a classic example of a person that doesn’t include moisturizing as part of my skincare regime. Why? Most moisturizers in the market are either:

  1. Too oily
  2. Smells bad
  3. Doesn’t absorb into the skin fast enough; feels super heavy on the skin when applied

& do you know that even if you have SUPER oily skin, there is still a need to moisturize? This is because when the skin feels that it is lacking of moisture, it will produce more sebum – oilier skin and more acne/pimples :O

So lets all debunk this myth of ‘oily skin – don’t need to moisturize cause enough moisture in the skin’

Now, what about dry skin?

What if you don’t moisturize?

Dry skins are usually very prone to wrinkling and as a result, YOU AGE FASTER!!!!

Hence, having a moisturized skin is important.

If you are wondering which category I belong to?

I have super dry skin, which means if I don’t start the moisturizing habit since the ‘tender age’ of 26, I might prematurely age faster 🙁

This scares me. HAHA.

IMG_2259

Cell Regenerate Gel Cream with Mulberry and Squalane.

  1. Helps to regenerate collagen (from the Squalane) within the skin by encouraging skin cells growth and retaining moisture with just one application
  2. Contains anti-oxidant (from the Mulberry Extract) that prevents skin from free-radical damages which might accelerate ageing if not prevented, hence this moisturizer shields your skin from the harm

IMG_2262

The texture?

SUPER DUPER LIGHT, the gel cream just melts into my skin with one application, leaving a healthy glow on my skin!

The smell?

It has this very comforting baby powder smell. Super nostalgic.

 

Super happy with this moisturizer and I recall that my friends love it too! Everyone wanted to use it everyday during my Bali trip and I, of course obliged.

I love sharing good things especially when it comes to things related to Beauty.

IMG_2229

I love it when my skin is moisturized and full of elasticity after application. It makes putting on sunblock and makeup much easier as I found that my skin absorbs the moisturizers very well.

It also assists in holding my makeup better.

IMG_2230

My skin is glowing right here ya?!?!

IMG_2233

Steps for application:

  1. Dot 5 dots on your face (forehead, cheeks, nose and chin)
  2. Spread them evenly
  3. Remember to apply on your neck too! (The skin around the neck is super susceptible to ageing, so we should always apply our moisturizer there!)

IMG_2223.JPG

Here is my glowing skin without makeup!!!

Having a good complexion really helps you build confidence in just being in your own skin without makeup! Moisturizing really helps!!!

 

 

Now……

 

IMG_2260

The night cream – Brightening Moisturizing Cream with Arbutin and Vitamins.

  1. Brightens (from Arbutin, this agent removes freckles and skin pigmentation)
  2. Moisturizes deeply all thanks to the vitamins derivatives, leaving a glowing and supple skin the next day.

IMG_2261

The texture?

Luxurious yet light, melts into the skin too VERY QUICKLY.

The smell?

Lemongrass!!!! Super soothing, after application, it smells like you are gonna have a massage in a spa.

 

This product has become my holy grail. Trust me when I say that it really gives you a glow the next day with super duper soft skin.

Again, my friends were using my moisturizer in Bali HAHAH!

IMG_2236

Really impressed with these Moisturizers thus far, no breakouts or whatsoever.

IMG_2221.JPG

 

IMG_2222.JPG

Yay to glowing skin the next morning!!!

My skin can even look like it is glowing and bright without any make up on!! Very amazing.

IMG_2226

All in all, the moisturizers REALLY do not feel heavy at all on the skin and I am really all about light formulas, therefore I really highly recommend these moisturizers.

 

Remember to incorporate moisturizing day and night into your skincare regime, because I can’t emphasise enough on HOW IMPORTANT IT IS TO ‘FEED YOUR SKIN’!

Both moisturizers work hand in hand to meet your day and night needs, so here is a promo code for you all when you shop at The Moisturisers Co.™  – EEXUAN10 – for 10% OFF when you purchase both Cell Regenerate Gel Cream and Brightening Moisturizing Cream!

Review of Infallible Le Rouge Lipstick and lip liner from LOreal Paris.

Can someone please tell me what is wrong with this pic?

IMG_3058.JPG

 

Honestly, I was using this brand of lipstick in Taiwan (where this picture was taken), happily munching on some YESHI snacks and my friend went, OMG!!!! Why your lipstick will leak one?!?!?!

So my bf and I decided to take a picture like this, okay I admit kissing him HAHA, but ya, the lipstick pigment transferred and we looked like zombies on a massacre. EEEKSSS!!!

 

Soo…..

 

Super happy that Loreal Paris SG has come up with this brilliant formula that:

  • Minimizes colour transfer
  • 10hr long wearing
  • Ultra Gliding – super easy to glide these babies on
  • Moisturizing, non-drying formula

 

& yes! I guess I wouldn’t face anymore of these terrible lipsticks leaks ever again!!!

 

Introducing, the Infallible Le Rouge from LOreal Paris Singapore!

IMG_1854

 

Swatches:

IMG_1852

Here is a swatch of the colours:

 

Starting from the left to right-

747: Bold Bordeaux

712: Everlasting Plum

737: Persistent Plum

337: Refined Ruby

543: Charming Lilac

212: Rambling Rose

421: Charismatic Coral

227: Eternal Rose

519: Tender Berry

423: Perpetual Peach

 

These colours are super pigmented and the texture is ultra smooth. The claims on it being moisturizing and hydrating were proven to be right! My super cracked lips were not as bad upon application, picture below:

FullSizeRender.jpg

Shade, 212 Rambling Rose.

Now for my top 3 picks of the collection, I have picked 3 different colours.

Everyday wear:

IMG_1798

Shade: 519 Tender Berry

 

FullSizeRender.jpg-2

How it looks like on the lips – a subtle tint to my discoloured lips hence it is suitable for everyday wear! LOVE!!!!!!

 

Next!!!

My FAVOURITE of them all – the Vibrant.

IMG_1776

Shade: 212 Rambling Rose

This is a fuchsia pink kind of tone that is not too in your face, but at the same time, it gives my always-tired looking face some life to it!

FullSizeRender.jpg

As featured earlier on, this shade was my favourite the instant the team made me try on for my shoot with them.

Video up VERY soon!!!!

Now for the sexy hot look that I love to variant for my makeup style…

I call it the date night bombshell look.

IMG_1800

Shade: 737 Persistent Plum

I grew a liking to darker shades in the recent years; perhaps it could be a sign of ageing HAHA. BUT SERIOUSLY, it gives my look a different type of look and I am slowly becoming more adventurous when it comes with trying on new lipstick colours!

This shade gave me a total different persona. You know how you can’t seem to smile for a picture when you have a certain look on? Yeap this is the one.

I would describe this shade as the blood red, or maybe slightly towards the maroon – not too red but a little purplish brown hue.

 

FullSizeRender.jpg-3

 

As illustrated above, did you notice that my lips are not that nicely shaped?

This is because my lips were not lined before I applied the lipsticks.

Sooooooo………

 

LOreal sent me their Never Fail Lip Liner range to try and test out if applying lip liner helps in the application… SO here is my review on them!!!

 

My take on the liners:

  • Easy to glide on
  • The sharpener at the back of the liner was a saviour because you do not need to source for a separate sharpener to sharpen your liners, SO THIS IS AN AWESOME FEATURE!
  • Pigmented
  • Matches their Infallible Le Rouge range, so you can match with them!

IMG_1853

Check out the tips of the liners – aids in the precision so that your cupids bow could be defined easier!!!

Tested out on my lips, following the cross-in-the-middle technique – thats how makeup gurus achieve their cupids bow!!!

IMG_1802

Instructions: By drawing a cross in the middle would help the lining of your lips better because it gives your lips a cupid bow even though it was pretty non-existent for me.

If you are wondering what shade?

It is the Rose shade on my lips for this lip liner.

IMG_1803

 

After having the Infallible Le Rouge lipstick on – You can instantly tell the difference ya?!

My cupids bow became super prominent with the help of the lip liner! AMAZING right?!!? I kid you not when I saw what a difference it makes by adding one more step – line your lips with a lip liner!!!

IMG_1801

As shown:

  • Lips much fuller
  • Cupids bow very significant

Alas! My completed look with LOreal Paris Infallible Le Rouge in shade, Refined Ruby – 337 and the Never Fail Lip Liner in shade Red Wine (specifically matched). I love how full my lips looked with the full lip makeup!

 

Just a close up on my lips:

FullSizeRender.jpg-4

NICE RIGHT!!!

This series of lip liners comes in 6 shades, however the plum shade will only be in later, so I have swatched the 5 shades I have on hand for your reference!

 

IMG_1855

 

I must say, I am very impressed with this new range as lipsticks these days don’t come with such qualities.

It is either the lipstick is pigmented, but drying.
OR the lipsticks are super moisturizing but it does not have any staying power.

 

This new kid on the block is definitely something for us to lookout for!

Here is the video on the Infallible Le Rouge range!
