Body Shop Teatree Concealer Stick

Have you ever wanted some concealers that conceals and heals your spots at the same time? Yeah... that's what I thought too, but unfortunately they only makes it grow larger!



Body shop teatree concealer review: If you were thinking of the above, I've already tested it for you (being a guinea pig), it doesn't really heals while it covers pretty okay. However, pimples will grow even with it's teatree ingredient in it.

Kesalan Pantharan Micro Sheer Powder

Lets talk about one of my favourite cosmetic brand. I agree the prices for KP's products are a little steep but if you would rather not waste money to try so many products before deciding on one, this is definitely the brand to choose.

This powder will go great with it's liquid foundation, it light, matt and doesn't float when your skin starts producing oil, I am a big fan of their bases, foundations and lipglosses. The have awesome lipglosses that are fragrances free, non-sticky (but moisturizing) and long lasting! Those who detest lipglossed that makes you feel like you're having a hundred coats of sticky flims on your lips will love their glosses. I guarantee.

FYI: A product that sensitive skin should avoid using

When I bought this product initally I was happy with it since I'm all about affortable and value for money drugstore products. Plus it labelled to be fragrance free, thus of course I'm going to give it a try when I need to buy a new sunblock lotion for daily use.

And then! Nightmares! The two sides of my cheeks literally turned red blotchy and flaky after a constant 1 week of using it. I convinced myself this must be the cause since I haven't added any other new products into my daily skincare routine.

So be aware, if you have fair, sensitive (combination skin types) like mine. TRY avoid using this product.

Faces: Make up Inspirations

Look at all these faces! Pretty delicious aren't they? Personally I'm a big fan of natural neutral color tones. Perhaps occassional experiments with lips. Some of these below are almost perfect!

Skinvitals Mask

Alright I managed to curb the idiotic annoying Antivirus Pro Malware on my computer but I am still unable to delete it completely! I'm freaking annoyed!

Alright anyway, time to talk about skincare & beauty. Straight to the point, I like Skinvital's Masks (available @ watsons) because it's affordable, effective and best of all fragrance free! Since a long time ago I have inculcated a firm believe that good skincare should not come with artifical fragrance, except essential oil that is. So all, yes I mean all my skincare products are pretty much fragrance free expect if the product is ingrediented with natural plant fragrance extracts or stuff similar like that.

These are the ones I use

Big problem!

My computer is infected with the annoying Antivirus Pro 2010 malware!!! I can't remove it no matter what I do! Have been searching google and all for proper removal guide but oh my goodness! It's still well intact despite numerous attempts.

Anyone can save me please? My computer can't function properly only if I can remove it!

Beauty tipssss

I seriously think these scans I 've put onto my blog are not well received... oh well, honestly they are good reference for skincare freaks! I don't trust a source easily but most of the time models dooooo recommend awesome products like these in your regular magazines. Frequently, I take notice of a product recommendation and goes on trying it myself and I've got to say I love models! They really let you know what are the good products out there, like for instance if it weren't due to these information leak outs by model/backstage artist... I would still currently be asking you what is bioderma? What la mer? What?! What?!! And I'd probably be wasting loads of money going around to try every product that comes out of an advertisement.

In addition, credits to you regular beauty bloggers too! If not for the abundance ready information and reviews on cosmetics, skincare... well... (again!)I'd probably be wasting loads of money going around to try every product that comes out of an advertisement.

Almost Bioderma Sensibio~

I'm pretty sure many have heard or have used the infamous Bioderma Sensibio magic lotion that claims to tone, cleanse and moisturize when you wipe it to your face at one go, but howeve I like using the product (because it's soooo convenient, imagine you're dead tired after a day of work and all you wanna do is to jump face down to your bed when you reach your room). Sensibio works wonder! Open the bottle, pour some onto a cotton pad and all you have to do is wipe, wipe and wipe. All you make up comes off and yet skin feels well moisturized.



BUT...but, it cost a whopping $39.90 for just a 200ml bottle. Now I present you my lastest find that match up to the functions of Sensibo while doing a lesser damage to your pocket. It retails @ $16.90 if I'm not mistaken.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

I forgot what it's called and how much quantity it contains but who cares. Just go down to your nearest guardian or watsons and you'll be able to find it! I'll recommend this to anyone, from the bottom of my heart.

*Leave your mascara and liner to proper eye make up remover, this product will not cleanse away waterproof mascara*

Skin Lab Mask

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

I don't think this mask is available in singapore but it is really good! Very moisturizing and fragrance free~ Which means its suitable for sensitive skin users also.

Review: its a sheet of mask filled with clear liquid, upon 15 mins of application the mask is still rather wet i would say. And it gives you a really cool sensation when putting the mask on. I'll definitely recommend this to anyone~~

Watson should seriously bring in this brand.

Dr Hauschka Rejuvenating Mask

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Seriously what's all the rave about? It really is just all right except that you kinda feel super comfortable with it's products due to the natural ingredients Dr Hau uses for all it's products...

Well all I have to say is you skin appear to be more cleanse and radiant after washing the mask away but the next day skin goes back to normal...

Or perhaps there's a procedures for using it? Anyone knows?

Oh and it retails for about $59 in singapore if i'm not wrong??

Eyeliners CANMAKE/REVLON/KATE

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

My favorite amongst them is KATE. You can draw any shape with it, it's so easy to use! All you have to do is simply layer and layer until you have build up the color (which is its only downside, the black is not black enough) and your eyeline's shape.

Additional info on KATE: cost around $15.90 at the time when I bought it. Has a very slim and thin tip.

2nd place is Relvon, the color is intense and beautiful plus it's easy to remove and doesn't leaves a mark after you try to cleanse it away.

Additional info on Relvon: cost $16.90 @ your regular watsons and guardian drugstores. If you were to compare the tip for Relvon's liner, it's somewhere between KATE and CANMAKE. I would say not too thin and not too thick.

Well... not much to praise for the CANMAKE's eyeliner except it's really very black in color when you compare it with KATE's eyeliner. But it run out fast, so I probably very much wouldn't purchase it again.

Behind the scene beauty tips!

Mario Badescu Glycolic cleanser & Neutrogena Eye makeup remover

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

I strongly recommend MB's glycolic cleanser, it cleanse away dead skin and make your skin feels more refine after using. And the best part is that my sensitive skin doesn't react from it at all~

Whereas for the Neutrogena eye makeup remover, i will have to say i would not purchase it again. Doesn't do what it claimed to do and worst of all, it made my eyelash drop! I literally pour half down the basin and "try" to finish it off quicky as I don't want to be so wasteful by throwing it away.



Hope you find it useful!

Estee Lauder Night Repair & Eye Repair

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Both of these are huge! In terms of price and popularity...

Well they are not mine, but my mum's. I borrowed it from her, anyway it's not the first time I did so, using her stuffs :p

I would recommend these two products for emergency use, not everyday as I feel that they might be too strong for young skin (I'm early early 20s by the way) as they contains Alpha-Hydroxy Acids. I have very fair and sensitive skin so I was like super nervous when I am applying the night repair one night and it turned out fine, very luckily. And the next morning your skin really looks more refine (as in pores are smaller) visually. I've ised the eye repair too on another day, it's alright... good.

Review: I'm still not quite sure about it as I've only used them one time. And I still hold true to my believe, night repair can't be a product to be use everyday. It's more of a treatment than daily skincare. Same goes for the eyec repair.

Price wise, if you're as thrifty as me, (who wouldn't really folk out $100++ dollars for the product). Tips is steal it from your mom. lol

Hope it helps,
Alex

Kose Junkisei Prime Creme Wash

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

I think the beauty world of bloggers needs more skincare reviews haha.

Got this one @ guardian if I'm not wrong. Honestly I don't really fancy japanese face wash since most that I've used strips away literally "everything" from your face, leaving it dry and nothing but dry. So I was rather skeptical at 1st, but I've saw some pretty good reviews about it so finally gained the courage to purchase it.

Review: ok, good, at least it doesn't strip the moisture away from your face completely and it's not costly, leaves your skin clean and (not exactly moisturized) but at least your skin feels kinda alright after using it.

Man, hope my description is okay 0_o?

Mario Badescu Flower & Tonic Mask

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

This is one good product that I want to share with you guys (I've spend so much more on skincare than cosmetics, you know if your skin is healthy, you'll look good whether you have make up or not), I've almost done with it and each time after applying this mask, you can always be sure to wake up to a better complexion next day.

So now on to the review. Sorry that didn't get a chance to open up the cap to show you guys the interior, FYI it's a thick light-mint-greenish-kind-of-paste and feels rather cooling upon application. After which when you're done waiting for 15 mins, you'll find it hard to wash it off. Use a sponge, I say. And you'll too notice the mask will leave a thin residue on your skin, it's alright, don't have to wash the residue away, just cleanse it with your toner and then follow by moisturizers will do.

Alright, cutting the crap, you can find more information on MB's offical website and it's soooo much cheaper ordering it online. Or alternatively, you can get it @ Sephora, but yup more costly in sg.

Alex
