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, 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)!

Matte lipsticks are not going out of trend any time soon as we see beauty brands coming up with interesting formulas and textures. If you’re a beauty junkie looking for a bit of fun in your lipstick game, try metallic mattes.
Whether you’re a makeup junkie, the Too Faced melted Matte-tallic, with its good range of shades are sure to allow you to take your makeup look from day to night. Drench your lips in a rich, brushed metal finish with this velvety matte formula for a luxurious plush wear. It’s lightweight, comfortable to wear and long-lasting too, which makes for an ideal lipstick if you hate to do touch-ups (like me).
Surprise boxes are always fun because you never know what you’re going to get until you unbox! This year, the Lazada Surprise Box is here again, but this time, with over 99 brands participating! Last year, I’ve reviewed the Mamonde Surprise Box which contained an entire skincare regime for only SGD29!
What is a Surprise Box?
It’s a box of products retailing at SGD29 or SGD49 (WHAT? ONLY?!) but with products worth around SGD100! I’m so happy that innisfree is one of the brands because I’ve been a fan of their skincare products, especially their masks!
A beauty junkie can never leave out base makeup especially when he/she is heading out of the house, even to run errands. For me, I have oily combination skin, very acne-prone as well, which makes it hard for me to find a foundation that suits me. Most of the foundations I tried in the market do not last on my skin but thankfully after years of experimenting, testing and trying, I managed to shortlist my top 5 favourites!
Price is never an issue for me because it’s all about finding the best foundation for my skin type. Interestingly, my five choices here range from the luxurious to the pocket-friendly ones.
After all the hype on the Hi-Fi Shine Ultra Cushion Lip Gloss, Urban Decay is set to transform our lip game by taking it one note down with the all new Lo-Fi Lip Mousse. I’ve been wearing them every single day and I can’t tell you how much I’m OBSESSED with the formula!
Think weightless, buildable and SUPER-PIGMENTED. I think that’s enough to shove all your current favourite lipsticks aside (for now).
We are already smitten by all the matte lipsticks we can have in the different textures possible – liquid and the regular solid bullets – but let’s welcome the new kid on the block! Housed in a little round shimmering purple compact, the Urban Decay Lo-Fi Lip Mousse is a total game changer with its airy mousse texture.
