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 …

NYX Total Control Drop Foundation – Yes or No?

Hello lovely people! I am sure everyone heard about NYX Total control drop foundation by now. It has been all over the youtube. A lot of youtuber raved about it. There are so many tutorials. I always interested in liquid foundation. I love NYX products too, especially their eyeshadows and eyeliner. When I found out the foundation is available here, I had to try it. NYX claims that this foundation has coverage from sheer to full. It has velvety and matte finish. You can get more coverage by using more drops. NYX also recommends to use the Total control foundation brush to apply the foundation to achieve “a seriously smooth finish“. There are 24 shades.

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 …

My favourite red lipsticks

Happy Monday, lovelies! I know, I know. Monday is not always the happiest day of the week. So let’s talk about something that can cheer up the mood a bit. I am thinking red lipsticks. 🙂 I was reorganising my makeup drawer during the weekend. You know the drill. Some must go, and some can stay. We should always do a regular clean-up of our makeup/skincare drawers because you don’t want to use expired products on your skin. They will only do more harm than good.  Here are my favourite red lipsticks. 1.Lancome L’Absolu Rouge Lipstick – 132 Caprice This one is reasonable new. I got it about three weeks ago. Very hydrating, pigmented, creamy and long lasting. I love the texture on my dry lips. The colour is a gorgeous blue toned red with a satin finish. Love the packaging too. 2. Nars Velvet Lip Glide – Le Palace I have done a review about this one. You can find it here. Very light texture, non-sticky and smooth. The colour payoff is super good. It …

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. “.

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) …

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 …

Hey lovelies, Happy Friday! I have a short review for Nars Velvet Lip Glide today. Most of the days I am a typical neutral, nude lip colour type. However, I do love a red lipstick from time to time, especially in the cold season or a rainy day. A little bit of bright colour can change the mood and brighten things up.
