Giving Clarins a go & more

I ‘yap’ a lot about SK-II but I’ve stopped using their range. I did get my dad the new stempower moisturiser but that’s about all I’ve purchased from them since early this year. The facial treatment essence is still in my routine but my skin is no longer reacting to their products. Maybe sometimes we just have to rotate our skincare. I don’t know. My skin was all over the place and it’s now normalized with minimal blemish and congestion.

A while ago I was given the Facial V serum sample alongside a deluxe sized hydraquench serum and gel cream. A serum that slims your face, sounds far fetched but that aside, I really liked how it felt on my skin. I got a full bottle and I think MAYBE it’s helped and yes I would repurchase but I’m in no hurry to fork out more money.

Lotus oil was a blind buy based on reviews on makeupalley. It hasn’t performed miracles but I do believe this works for congested skin. My beautician exclaimed “It has never been this easy to extract (gunk) out of your face!”


I am on the fence about hydraquench gel cream but I do think the serum has helped in keeping my skin hydrated. No break outs as yet.

Avene was my substitute from sasa when i couldn’t get a travel sized face spray from caudalie. It’s hard to convince myself that it has any benefits because it’s not scented. I can be shallow that way.

Lastly, LOVE LOVE LOVE Voyage D’Hermes deodorant. So clean and fresh.


They came bearing gifts

Granted I did pay for them but it was nice of my friends to carry them over from Hong Kong.

I can’t wait to jump into the shower to test out L’occitane’s cherry princess shower cream.
