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.

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.

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.

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.
