Relieve sensitive skin with Dr. Andrew Weil for Origins™ Mega-Mushroom Relief & Resilience Hydra Burst Gel Lotion: Review

“Sensitive” is what most ladies will describe their skin, but is it really sensitive? Sometimes, it’s not that our skin is sensitive, but the products we use or the excessive exposure to skin-damaging environmental factors that exacerbate our skin conditions. Dry climates can also cause our skin to react too. In any case, if you’re fretting over how to calm your (sensitive) skin, the Dr. Andrew Weil for Origins™ skincare range is your answer!

5 Face Serums I cannot live without: Review

Serums are must-haves for me when it comes to my skincare regime. Oh, but then again, my skincare regime is pretty extensive so… Anyway, if you thought that you could skip serum and go straight to just applying moisturiser, you’re only half right.

Serums are products that can be chock-full of moisturising ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, ceramides etc. which may seem like replacements for moisturisers. However, serums do not contain “sealing” ingredients which moisturisers have, that are used to prevent moisture from leaving your skin. Most of the time, serums are rich in ingredients to target specific skin concerns such as dullness, acne, wrinkles, dryness to name a few. For me, I battle with skin dullness, uneven skin texture, acne and dryness so serums are my lifesavers.

Back to the basics for hydrated and radiant skin with InstaNatural: Review

Sponsored by iHerb

Being in an urban jungle in this tropical climate, we often face a host of skin aggressors such as pollution and stress. We tend to pile up our skincare to counter the detrimental effects of these problems but sometimes, it’s all about going back to the basics.

Going back to the basics means focusing on simple yet effective solutions. Every month, I get a skin outbreak due to hormonal changes and what I like to do is to cut down the number of skincare products in my regime to not over-complicate things.

InstaNatural-iHerb_02

InstaNatural, a brand that focuses on clean and accessible skincare, has been helping me achieve hydrated and radiant skin during times like these. If you want to go natural, go InstaNatural (c/o iHerb)!

90 seconds smart masking with FOREO UFO Face Mask Device: Review

Masking is something I can never live without in my everyday life. You may think it’s crazy, but yes, I mask every day. Due to my dry combination skin, I have to mask as often as I can, so that I can pack my skin with ample hydration and allow it to repair itself quickly.

FOREO-UFO-Face-Mask-Device-01

Masking can be relaxing but for working adults like us, time is forever an issue. I often find masking a chore because of how much time I need to sacrifice at night just to do it. A usual sheet/clay mask will take you at least 20 minutes and who in the world has got time for that?!

Just as you’re fighting the thought to either sleep or mask, FOREO has its latest invention, the UFO Face Mask Device, to solve your dilemma! You only need 90 seconds to mask… say whaaat?!
