Not sure if it’s because I’m in my mid-20’s now…but my skin has been fluctuating between dry and oily, something that hasn’t happened before. I’ve been looking for some new skincare heroes that doesn’t cost an arm or a leg (or the price of 10 mochas.) I was sent the Vichy Normaderm Tri-Activ Mask, and there is no better time than now for a product like this. The first time I used Vichy was eight years ago! My mom had purchased some products before our Euro-trip and it was the first time I had to think about cleansing my skin apart from using water. Between then and now, I haven’t used any Vichy products since then.
It’s only February but I am already getting into Spring beauty launches, woohoo! On February 1st, NARS launched its Velvet Matte Skin Tint, an oil free formula that offers sheer to medium coverage and claims to blur the appearance of pores and fine lines. Prior to trying this product, the other NARS foundation I’ve used was the Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer which I already LOVE. I usually go for foundation that makes my skin look dewy, so this was a fun experience to use a matte base this time!
Happy Chinese New Year!! Whether I’m at home blogging or behind my screen at work, snacking is a habit I thoroughly enjoy. (Especially during Chinese New Year, I’ve been snacking on those sweet rice cakes morning, afternoon, and night.) Coconut is a flavour I enjoy in Chinese desserts as well as in ice cream. I was sent four bags of Prana Organic Dry Roasted Coconut Chips and I was excited to do some healthy snacking.
Liquid-y lip colours are one of my best friends in my bag and I’ve had my eye on the Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor for a while. Matte lip colours have always been my least favourite finish but I was curious with Revlon’s gel lip colours that is 100% wax free and is still moisturizing. A hydrating matte lip, could it be true?!
As Valentines Day is slowly creeping up and if you want to shy away from the traditional gifts, a more practical AND chic gift idea would be a pair of Sudio earphones. Stylish, clean and sleek- how can one resist a beautiful piece of technology?!
Being a frequent commuter and having the privilege to listen to music during work, I am used to having earphones on me at all times. Not only are they good to keep me entertained, they’re also really useful when it comes to avoiding strangers. I’ve been using my Apple earphones for a long time (and I think most people can agree they are rubbish,) and so glad to have switched to the oh-so-pretty Sudio earbuds.
