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.

Fortify and hydrate your skin with Aesop’s Parsley Seed Skincare: Review

Ever since I’ve started religiously using skincare products to protect my skin, I’ve always been curious about a brand called Aesop. As such, I bought my first Aesop product, the Parsley Seed Masque, with my first intern pay check a couple of years back.

Aesop was a brand that reached out to me because of its simplistic and minimalistic packaging. I love how the products are packed in dark brown bottles with black and cream-coloured labels. Each of their products have got an aromatic herbaceous scent on their own which can calm my senses. Of course, after hearing all the raves on the Internet, I had to start my Aesop journey with the Parsley Seed range!

Being a huge fan of the Parsley Seed Masque, it’s a no-brainer when Mankind approached me to discover more from Aesop. I ordered everything from the Parsley Seed range! And yep, it’s just easy to order online and get products shipped to you, isn’t it? I have with me the Parsley Seed Anti-Oxidant Serum, Parsley Seed Anti-Oxidant Facial Treatment and Parsley Seed Anti-Oxidant Facial Hydrating Cream. One word to describe the range – irreplaceable!

Soothe, protect and moisturise your sensitive skin with La Roche-Posay Toleriane Ultra: Review

SPONSORED

Having sensitive skin can be quite a pain, because it’s always tough to find skincare that truly helps with sensitivity. It’s especially annoying for me because I’m always attracted to new beauty products on the market but I’ll never know if they’ll trigger any sensitive reaction until I try them.

I’ve recently been invited to try out the La Roche-Posay Toleriane Ultra c/o the brand and I want to share with you my experience with the skincare range targeted at skin sensitivity.

Revealing Budapest’s Best-kept Skincare Secret – Omorovicza Midnight Radiance Mask + Queen Of Hungary Mist: Review

As we welcome the Year of the Dog, while we want ourselves to PAWSper, we also want our skin to blossom for this brand new year, don’t we?

Living in Asia, we’re mostly acquainted with Asian skincare brands, or if not, huge international beauty brands that are stocked in Sephora. I don’t know about you but I haven’t been adventurous with my skincare because of my skin sensitivity, thus, was contented with the brands I use/see on a daily basis. However, when the kind team from Lookfantastic approached me with Omorovicza, a Hungarian brand, I was excited, yet nervous at the same time.

<WARNING: INFORMATIVE HONEST REVIEW AHEAD>

Having read up on the history of Omorovicza, I was more compelled to test out the brand. If you didn’t know, Omorovicza was founded by Stephen, a descendant of the noble Omorovicza family, and his wife, Margaret, while they were in Budapest’s ancient spas/baths.

Restore your skin’s natural balance with LANEIGE Fresh Calming Line: Review

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!
