Now onto the highlight of today’s post. Here are the long awaited masques!

CILANTRO & ORANGE EXTRACT POLLUTANT DEFENDING MASQUE ($49,75ml)

This mask defends and replenishes skin to reduce the visible effects of pollution while helping to prevent impurities form adhering to skin.

As we all know, it is a need for skincare these days to not only target spots or ageing but also to take into consideration POLLUTION. Pollution basically comes in 5 forms, each damaging and impairing skin’s natural protection mechanisms. This is where the mask comes in as a protective treatment facial masque that features 3 level of protection and treatment against the damaging effects of pollution on skin.

  1. Fights skin damage

Formulated with Orange extract, most would know this is a one of the strongest antioxidant and offers multiple pollution fighting benefits.

  1. Strengthen skin

Using derived oils and incorporating them into the skincare, Vitamin E (also included) is a well-known antioxidant ingredient and key to lipid production. This is here the mask comes in, it helps to replenish the skin with this vital nutrient.

Anyway, back to reviewing the product. For this product, you can use it sparingly without putting too thick. The texture is light and being in a paste form, it feels smooth to touch. Skin indeed feels more moisturised and clearer after using.

TURMERIC & CRANBERRY SEED ENERGIZING RADIANCE MASQUE ($49,75ml)

The formula works as an instant facial by brightening and energising the look of dull, fatigued skin to restore a healthy, rosy appearance. Key ingredients like Cranberry and Turmeric helps visibly improve the overall look of the skin while Cranberry Seeds gently exfoliates for a smoother, brighter and more illuminated complexion.

I have always enjoyed masques and have Kiehls all time favourite, the Deep Cleansing Clay Mask. According to some popular female icons, masks are known to instantly transform one’s skin. This is a beauty secret used by Cleopatra, Yang Guifei and Marie Antionette.

Meant for Skin brightening and exfoliating purposes, the masque has tiny cranberry seeds within the paste and when applied it feels rather cooling and refreshing on the skin.

The smell is towards citrusy and the texture is rather thick. One tiny scoop is sufficient for the whole face I believe. After application, skin looks visibly brighter and more radiant.

Biotherm’s ALL-NEW Life Plankton™ Mask

WHEN YOUR LIFE IS INTENSE, Your skin deserves the most INTENSE RECOVERY

IMG_0731

Introducing the ALL-NEW Life Plankton™ Mask. A mask that provides extreme soothing and deep repair treatment, even for seemingly damaged-beyond-repair skin. This leave-on mask is the solution against skin damage from daily aggressions like UV rays and pollution. It also soothes redness and repairs roughness & dryness. Biotherm has launched this iconic product in January 2016 with a #Wonderwoman Campaign to rally all women to #RestartStronger in 2016.

Thank you Biotherm and Wei Lin for sending this over!

Withness the effect of a spa session within a breakthrough hydrogel texture. Made to feel like second skin, the texture is light and watery. Skin is more breathable as well.

HOW TO USE

Use it twice weekly after your toner and treatment essence, or use it daily. With just one use, I can feel my skin smoother and softer.

Long exposure to air-conditioning causes extreme dryness. Being a city-fit girl, I often face such issues which is why I am always searching for the right type of moisturising skincare for my busy schedule. This mask is perfect, because it serves as a one step skincare that allows deeper penetration of hydration.

REVIEW

I like this product for its very light watery texture. It feels very much like gel and when applied to the skin, skin feels refreshed and rejuvenated at the same time. Brought this for my Bali trip and am surprised how it helped me tide through the dryness throughout the trip. Unlike most sleeping masks, this mask does not leave residue on the skin and allows my skin to breathe which is most important in a sleeping mask as we ladies wouldn’t want clogged pores the very next day. Skin indeed feels more even and fresher upon waking up.

Origins Three Part Harmony Range

I have been a fan of Origins products for the longest time and uses their star product ‘Out Of Trouble’ mask a lot. I have even recommended their products to my friends because they are that good. Which is why when I was invited to attend their launch of the Three Part Harmony range and a floral arrangement session with Floral Atelier, I just had to blog about how interesting the event was!

Origins new Three Part Harmony features Tazetta Lily Bulb’s adaptive youth-renewing technology to reawaken aging skin cells and block cellular signals that inhibit and discourage youthful cell function. The new two-prong regimen features an emollient rich Oil-Infused Serum that delivers intense moisture to skin and indulgent Nourishing Cream which provides additional moisture and leaves skin plump and radiant.

The formula features a cocktail of hydrators and youth- renewers that restores longevity once cellular energy is returned with knotweed and myrtle extract. Collagen-boosting Vitamin C and licorice leaf extract repair multiple signs of aging to soften lines, deliver age-resisting hydration, and lift and firm skin by restoring skin’s resilience. Radiance shines through as scutellaria root and apple extract restore luminosity and brighten time-worn skin. The formula combines an essential oil blend of rose, violet and jasmine to envelop the consumer in the luxurious product experience.

The Three Part Harmony formula boosts collagen to promote the lifting and firming of skin. Upon application of both products, the rich, creamy formulas deliver age-resisting hydration to repair moisture loss and increase resilience. Eventually, cellular energy is restored and skin appears lifted and luminous.

Three Part Harmony Nourishing Cream, 50ml (S$123) and Oil-Infused Serum, 30ml (S$123) are specifically powered by natural ingredients to provide a multi-dimensional anti-aging prevention treatment will be available at all Origins counters beginning 1 January 2016 and also available online at www.luxola.com/sg/brands/luxury/origins

REVIEW

It was certainly refreshing and interesting to learn more about the beautiful and fragrant Tazetta Lily Bulb.

DSC06208

A true metaphor of renewal, this beautiful white flower preserves its own youth and beauty each time it blooms from year to year and season to season. Origins used the potent flower to create a comprehensive formula that restores youthful longevity.

Three Part Harmony Nourishing Cream, 50ml (S$123)

DSC06197

Made to be used hand in hand with the serum. I liked that it is rather creamy but still liquid which can be applied on top of the serum without being too heavy. I never liked heavy creams because it psychologically gives me the impression that it might be too thick for my skin to breathe.

Oil-Infused Serum, 30ml (S$123)

DSC06194

I like that it comes in a hygienic drop applicator. When I first tried it, I thought it was purely oil as it was rather liquid in texture. Texture was smooth and light. It was easily to glide on and infused with the fragrance of the Tazetta Lily Bulb, it smelt really fragrant. As taught by the Education Manager in Origins, its best to sniff the smell as you apply for maximised beauty effects. It offers calming properties.  Being a combination skin type, I would apply the cream and serum to the drier parts of my skin and only putting on the serum to my T-ZONE areas.

REVIEW

IMG_6270 copy

The facial cleanser comes in a light gel type texture very similar to Aloe Vera gel and doesn’t lather up much until you add some water. It also smells citrus-y due as it comprises of fruity essential oils.

IMG_6272 copy

It is also sealed which makes it hygienic and safe to use.

Skin feels clean yet hydrated at the same time which is very important for my combination skin type. It can get very drying on the cheeks hence I truly love this cleanser because it doesn’t strip off my skin’s natural ph. Usually after using other commercial cleansers or prescribed face cleanser, my skin would feel very dry but yet it doesn’t feel that way at all after using this!

HOW TO USE

Squeeze a coin size on palm and mix with a little water and lather up.
