Emma Hardie Amazing Face Age Support Face Cream | Review

Hey everyone, just a quick skin care product review today. I would like to talk about Emma Hardie Amazing Face Age Support Face Cream in this post. I have been using it as my night cream for a while. So I guess it’s time to share. It’s an UK brand. So it’s not easy to get it in Australia. I bought it from cultbeauty website from UK. Then, I found ASOS is selling products from this brand as well. I kinda like their principle to develop products that can help firm and plump skin without using harsh ingredients. I used to think I don’t care about the chemical ingredients as long as it works on my skin. However, lately, I have become more and more interested in skin care products with natural or healthy ingredients. Certainly, it has to deliver what I want. What they say about it: “An intense super-hydrating and lifting treatment creme that helps to give the skin back its youthful glow. A powerful blend of marine and botanical extracts combined with …

Milk & Co Face Cleanser | Review

Last day of July! I have no idea how and where July has gone. I still remember how I felt when it was January…All right, that’s enough. Let’s look forward. Today I want to present you the Milk & Co face cleanser, It’s not a new product, but it’s new to me. I have been using it nonstop lately. Although I had another post planned, I just love this one too much that I have to tell you all about it. 🙂 I don’t particular like foaming cleanser since I have dry skin. However, I was surprised by this one. I fell in love right away when I used it for the first time. Who can blame me? You will love the smell of this cleanser. It does not dry out my skin, and it has 95% naturally derived ingredients. What they say about it: “A natural based foaming cleanser to clear away the day and get you ready for the next.  With scents of essential geranium oil, ylang ylang and extracts of hibiscus flower …

Aesop Camellia Nut Facial Hydrating Cream | Review

Such a windy today. I am sitting in my little study. I can hear the wind roaring. Lucky, I have a day off. I can hide in my cosy room and watch the tree branches sway and the leaves dance in the wind. I have never been a fan for a windy winter day. It just make my dry skin feel even more drying. Foundation wouldn’t stay put. Then, everything else would become a disaster. Last year, I started using Aesop Camellia Nut Facial Hydrating Cream during winter. It has become my holy grail winter day cream ever since. I don’t remember how I came across this cream, but I have been loving it. I know it’s not a new product, but I would recommend it for the ones who have dry skin to try it. Aesop claims Camellia Nut Facial Hydrating cream is “ a nourishing daily moisturising cream for dry or sensitive skin. The complex blend of nut and plant extracts in this extensively researched formulation absorbs swiftly, providing anti-oxidant fortification and richly nourishing hydration …

Sukin Micellar Cleansing Water |Review

Hello, lovelies! Anther Monday, another week. I hope all of you had a great weekend, no matter where you are. 🙂 I have been using the Sukin Micellar Cleansing Water for quite a while. I think it’s time for me to write a review about it. In general, I love micellar water. I use it to remove my makeup every night before I wash my face with a gel or a cream cleanser. If you have never heard about the brand. It’s an Australian natural skin care brand. The company promotes affordable skincare product that “doesn’t cost the earth”. All their products are vegan, cruelty free and made from naturally derived ingredients. Sukin claims that this Micellar Cleansing Water is “infused with gentle Aloe Vera to thoroughly remove make-up and dirt build up, whilst soothing and purifying the complexion. A refreshing blend of Chamomile and Cucumber calms, leaving skin lightly hydrated and clean. This product can be left on skin, there is no need to wash it off. “. It says the micellar cleansing water is Paraben …

RMK Clear Cleansing Milk | Review

Hello lovelies! I hope you are having a wonderful day! I have been using this cleansing milk for a while. So I thought I probably should write a review about it. I would consider RMK a Japanese brand since its laboratories are all in Japan from what I heard. I really want to try their liquid foundation. RMK claims this cleansing milk can “soften the outermost layer of our skin (mostly dead cells), eliminate the makeup, sebum and those stubborn old cells that most cleansers struggle to cope with. It reveals a clearer, brighter and more luminous skin. With its mild texture it smoothly lifts away makeup and rinses off easily, leaving a good balance of moisture. Enjoy its sweet relaxing scent of orange vanilla while the tips of your fingers gently restore enviably clear skin.” Key Ingredients: To be honest, I have had a hard to time to find the ingredients on their website.  It didn’t say much on the bottle, and I threw away the packaging long time ago. 😦 Milk Derivative* (Moisturizing) Apricot Extract (Moisturizing) …

Kao Steam Eye Mask | Review

Hey guys, happy Friday! Another week is gone. Can you believe it’s already June! I found this newly opened Japanese shop when I was doing my grocery shopping last week. Of course, I had to pick up few things. This box of  Kao steam eye mask was one of them. I had heard about it before, and I was very curious. Kao says the mask warms up gradually to  40°C once it’s taken out of the pouch. Steam is produced by the heat. Ear straps are attached to the eye mask on both side. There are options of unscented and scented eye masks (lavender-sage, rose, fresh rose, Yuzu aroma, and chamomile-ginger). It says it can relieve tired eyes. I purchased the one without scent. It was AUD 20 for one box which contains 14 individual packed eye masks. I am sure it’s much cheaper in Japan. The eye mask is disposable. If you don’t mind the scent, I think the lavender-sage could be very relaxing. It also mentions that all the scent is made from natural …

Self-Facial Massage Benefits and Tools

Happy Friday, guys! I hope you all have had a good week so far. I am going to talk about the benefits of a facial massage today. I am a big believer. I have incorporated it in my daily skin care routine for years. I found it not only helps me with my sleep but also makes my skin healthy and glowing. I believe there are plenty of benefits from a daily facial massage. For example: Anti-ageing – facial massage increases blood and oxygen circulation to improve fine lines around eyes and mouth. As we all know, our body produces less and less collagen as we age. Facial massage helps to increase collagen production during the process. Detoxing – When doing facial massage, it helps to push lymph fluid through our system by increasing muscle movement. In that way, it helps to improve drainage and remove toxin from our face. Improve skin care products absorption – when we do facial massage with skin care products, it helps to absorb the products better. Glowing and plump complexion – facial massage increases …

Zelens Z-22 Absolute Face Oil | Review

It’s getting cold here. Summer is officially over. Oh, I am not ready for the cold season yet. Anyway, speaking of the cold season, a good face oil is a must for me. Some of you probably know that I have got dry skin since I mentioned before many times. I feel that I cannot live without a good face oil ever since I started using it. Although I love the Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Night oil, I think it’s quite heavy. I bought the Zelens Z-22 Absolute Face Oil last month, and I have been using it everyday. Zelens claims this oil is “a blend of 22 precious oils ” which can help to refine skin texture, improve skin elasticity, increase radiance and prevent environment damage.

Swisse Manuka Honey Detoxifying Facial Mask | Review

Two weeks ago, I went to our local Priceline shop to get some cotton buds. The girl who worked in the shop was so nice and sweet.She recommended the Swisse Manuka Honey Detoxifying Facial Mask to me. It is $18 normally. However, I only paid $10 for it because there was a promotion in the store. For $10, I certainly wouldn’t mind to try it out. Who knows! I might just find the best clay mask ever. 😉 Manuka honey has been a star ingredient for skin care in the past few years. It is full of goodies. It is well-known that honey has antibacterial compounds help to heal and stop bacteria reproducing on the skin. Manuka honey’s anti-inflammatory property is great to treat acne scars. It helps to regenerate, repair cellular damage and nourish the skin. It also has anti-ageing effect. Sounds promising, right? 🙂   Key Ingredients: Aloe Vera: calming, soothing, moisturising and antibacterial. Kaolin Clay: detoxifying, reducing large pores, soothing and nourishing. Manuka Honey: antioxidant, healing, anti-inflammatory, anti-bacteria and soothing. Charcoal Powder: detoxifying and brightening. Salicylic Acid: …
