When my skin’s happy, I am happy! One of the main reasons why I’m really bubbly and happy-go-lucky lately is because of my skin. I’ve been feeling really confident in my skin for the past 2-3 months or so because it has drastically improved. I kid you not; I have been struggling with acne issues since I was a teenager, about 14 years old or so, to the extent that I needed to be on Oratane. The large, inflamed, cystic acne may have stop visiting me but I still get occasional break outs every month.
When I thought all hope was lost, I found a combination of different skincare products that work for me. If you’ve been following paradeoflove.com, you’ll know that one of the culprits for my clear complexion is the Allies of Skin Glow Gifter Set which contains the Molecular Saviour Mist and the Bright Future Overnight Facial.
Mask times are precious relax times and “Me” times, and I make sure that I indulge myself in it every day for at least 20 minutes. A “mask-time” a day, keeps stress at bay! Be it stress on the mind or on the skin, you can really take away the stresses with just 20 minutes of zoning out while you treat your skin. While masking is essential, it is even more important to choose the mask that best works for your skin.
I’m on for hydrating sheet masks almost every night, except nights where I feel that I need some skin detox. For nights like these, I reach out for the Fresh Umbrian Clay Purifying Mask, which I call, a miracle mask for my skin.
Lately it’s been looking all rosy on my skincare shelf in my boyfriend’s room. As I’m always staying over at his place on weekends, I have been leaving bits and pieces of me (my clothes, skincare, makeup) at his place and the one set of skincare I rely on during the weekends is the LANEIGE Fresh Calming Line.
LANEIGE has always been one of my trusted Asian brands when it comes to skincare and makeup, from the Water Sleeping Mask to the BB Cushion Pore Control and recently, the new line of foundation and bases. I was so stoked when they decided to drop a whole line of skincare dedicated to restoring your skin’s natural balance with four very simple steps.
Formulated with natural litchi extract and deep-sea water, the LANEIGE Fresh Calming Line seeks to empower your skin with the fundamentals – to soothe and moisturise. Let’s go back to the basics with uncomplicated steps to regain a healthy, rosy complexion. It’s time to unleash the sparkling beauty in you!

Kiehl’s has been a skincare brand that I heavily rely on since my university days. It has always been a brand with products that not only promise efficacy but also quality. Since 1851, Kiehl’s has sourced the world in search for the finest and most efficacious natural ingredients to bring you top-notch skincare that simply works.
One of the first few products that Kiehl’s introduced was the Calendula Herbal Extract Toner formulated with hand-picked Calendula petals, which instantly became a customer favourite for its soothing and refreshing properties. Today, Kiehl’s chemists continue to harness the soothing benefits of the Calendula flower with a new addition to the Calendula family – Calendula & Aloe Soothing Hydration Masque.
A gentle skin remedy, the Calendula Masque was developed to refresh, revitalise and hydrate all skin types, in just 5 minutes.
