Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream (Anti-wrinkle day cream)| Review

Hey lovelies, happy Friday! I can’t believe it’s March already! Somehow these days I always feel that I don’t have enough time to do everything.  It has proven this year is really a busy year for me. Anyway, I have a skin care product review today, which is for Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream – Anti-wrinkle day cream. If you have followed me for a while, you probably remember I did a review for Pro-Collagen Oxygenating Night Cream last year. Elemis is a UK luxury skincare brand. The Pro-collagen Marine Cream is an award-winning day cream. It was the Best Beauty Stylist winner in 2016 and Best for Mature Skin winner for 2017. I have almost finished this one. You will see in the photo. I gotta say I have been enjoying it. What they say about this product: “Clinically proven the powerful anti-ageing ingredients have been shown to reduce the depth of wrinkles, improve skin firmness, tone and hydration in 14 days. The unique Mediterranean algae, Padina Pavonica is blended with Ginkgo Biloba providing superior free-radical protection has been …

Sukin Moisture Restoring Night Cream| Review

You probably noticed that I have been trying out more and more vegan, environment friendly beauty products. Sukin is an Australian vegan, cruelty free, natural skin care brand. I have tried quite a few products from them, shower gel, shampoo, hydration mist, Micellar cleansing water (bit disappointed by this one) and so on. All the ingredients they use for their products are naturally derived, which is super healthy and environmentally sustainable. The bonus is that pretty much all the products are very affordable. Today, I have another review of Sukin products, Moisture Restoring Night Cream. Since I have dry skin, hydration has always been my top priority when it comes to skin care product. I have used this one for a while. I think it’s a perfect night cream for dry skin in a summer time. What they say about this product: “nourishes the skin while you sleep through a blend of Rosehip, Evening Primrose and Jojoba Oils. Added Vitamin E, Borage and Avocado Oils replenish the skin’s moisture barrier while improving the texture, leaving skin …

KIKO Trio Blush and 3D Hydra Lipgloss

Hey lovelies, Happy Wednesday! Hope your week has been going well so far. It’s so hot and sunny today. Just too hot to go anywhere. I notice that lately I haven’t been very keen on makeup stuff. I haven’t bought any new things since I came back from the trip. It’s probably because the hot weather. Light coverage foundation, blush and lipgloss are all I need for everyday make-up. Speaking of lipgloss and blush, I have been using the one I bought from the trip, Kiko 3D hydra Lipgloss and Trio blush. I really like them. The KIKO Trio Blush I got is 05 Marsala, a matte dusty mauve pink. The colour is soft and natural looking. It is very easy to blend.  Doesn’t take much effort at all. I love the packaging too, very compact with a mirror inside. Handy to travel with.  I don’t think the lasting power is super good, but I am ok with it. I can have it on for over four hours in a hot summer day with a setting …

The Body Shop British Rose Fresh Plumping Mask | Review

I have been thinking to share this one for a while. I can’t remember how I got this one. Hmm, I probably bought it during Xmas holiday. In general, I love The Body Shop products, especially their body butter and scrubs. Have your tried the honeymaina body scrub? It’s pure heaven. You will get baby skin after that, smooth like silk. I have tried their mask products before. However, I wasn’t very impressed. This one is different. It was a very pleasant surprise. The mask is designed to hydrate and plump the skin and leave a soft, dewy and youthful glow. It says it can be used 2-3 times per week. I think I use it whenever I feel I need a good hydrating mask. What they say about the product: ” Inspired by the European bathing rituals, 100% vegan refreshing gel face mask is infused with real rose petals, rose essence, rosehip oil and organic Community Trade aloe vera. it’s formulated without parabens, paraffin, silicone or mineral oil. Reveal skin that’s replenished with moisture and visibly …

Qualikos BioQ Macadamia Body Butter | Review

If you know me, I cannot live without body butter. When we travelled in Sicily, I used up my body shop body butter. I couldn’t find it anywhere. What a disaster! Well, I had to get something. That’s how I came across the Qualikos BioQ body butter. It’s quite hard to find information about this company, especially when I don’t speak Italian at all. Thanks to Google translate! Here is what I found out. Qualikos is an Italian company that manufactures ecofriendly beauty products, including personal care, body care, hair care, bath and shower products. BioQ is their certified organic line of products. Only natural ingredients from organic farming are used.

Zelens Z Luminous Brightening Serum | Review

Hey lovelies, how’s the week so far? My day started from going to our local shopping mall in very early hours to get few things. Although I was trying to avoid the crowd, unfortunately it was very unsuccessful at all. It took me ages to get in and out. I think it will be my last trip to the mall for this year. If I really must get something, I think I will just go online. Thanks for the internet, so convenient. Anyway, I have a review for you today. If you follow me for a while, you probably know I love Zelens Absolute Face oil. It has been a staple of my skin care routine. I haven’t found anything works better than that. Because of my love to the oil, I decided to try out the Zelens Z luminous Brightening serum. I wanted to see if it works on my skin. I bought the serum after I came back from our trip. I have been using it for about a month now. I can …

Clinique Pure Vitamin C Powder Cleanser | Review

Hey lovely people, how are you doing today? Happy Wednesday! It’s already in the middle of the week, almost the end of November. Can you believe it?! Before I start the review, the product’s name is actually Clinique Fresh Pressed™ Renewing Powder Cleanser with Pure Vitamin C. Very long, eh? 😉 I bought a 28 packets at the airport on the way back to Brisbane.  I have been using it ever since. There are only two packets left now. What they say about the product: It is a “water-activated powder cleanser with fresh Vitamin C to purify, brighten, retexturize“. The powder is activated by adding water. It suits all skin types for daily use. After using it, the skin will instantly has a “awakened, purified, with a refined texture and brighter look“.

How to Choose Between Laser Skincare Options

Have you ever considered Laser Skincare Options for your skin problems? I know I have. I am still considering Laser treatment for the stubborn pigmentation on my cheeks. Few skincare procedures are anywhere near as well-known as laser treatments. Yet, many people still don’t fully understand how laser treatments work or how one laser device varies from another. You must have an understanding of those things before you can choose between laser skincare options for anti-aging and properly treat your skin concerns. A Comparison of Ablative and Non-Ablative Laser Devices Traditional laser treatments are typically thought of as ablative (treating the skin’s surface) and non-ablative (treating deeper skin layers). While non-ablative treatments typically have no impact on the epidermis, or outer skin layer, ablative treatments can either focus on the surface or impact multiple skin layers, depending on their intensity and purpose. An ablative laser device often strips away surface skin cells, many of which are already dead. It can also help to unblock pores by removing debris that would otherwise clog them. In addition …

Looking For the Best Dry Shampoo

Happy Monday! To be honest, it is actually my least favourite day of the week. I guess there is no surprise there. Somehow, Monday is the day that I always have more stress and more unexpected incidents. I hope my Monday has more than 24 hours so that I get more things done. Anyway, lately, I am resolved to take better care of my hair. I wash my hair everyday although I know it’s not very good for the hair. It’s probably part of the reason of my crazy frizzy hair. I am going to try to wash hair less often. However, I still want clean looked hair. I am thinking I probably should try dry shampoo. It looks like it can keep my hair clean enough between washes. Plus, it will save so much time from washing and blow drying. A win-win! Dry shampoo has been on the market for a while. There are so many brands offering dry shampoo products now. The options can be quite overwhelming. It would be wise to do some research …
