June 2018 Roundup

FAVOURITES

Mentholatum Hada Labo Koi-Gokujyun Perfect Gel – My skin may not be perfect, but it’s looking and feeling a lot better since I’ve incorporated this as the humectant-type moisturizer to my routine. My skin feels softer and smoother and more plump in general. It must be working at keeping all that hydration in!

Levi’s 501 Shorts – I can’t stop wearing these. They fit me so well and make my butt look really good.


EMPTIES

Banish Acne Scars Activated Charcoal Clay Masque – I’m really happy that this managed to last around 4 months with consistent use, especially since it’s in a small jar. I won’t be repurchasing this because I don’t like masks in powdered form in general, and I prefer creamier textures when it comes to clay masks. REVIEW: Banish Acne Scars Banish Starter Kit

Boo Bamboo Natural Sunscreen Mini Spray SPF 30 * – I take back what I said in my Green Beauty Products I Don’t Like vid. My boyfriend wanted to use it up instead of giving it away, and I’ve come to like it. It’s spreads nicely, doesn’t feel thick on the body, no whitecast when you rub it in and wait, and is a dry finish without drying your skin. I still stand by what I said before though, don’t use this if you plan on going in any water. It got really patchy on my body and it was not a pleasant site!

Klairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner (Scented) – I’ve already done a dedicated review on this bad boy, so no need to go into detail. I am currently using the unscented one, and for the summer months I am finding it quite enjoyable and it seems to be performing just as well long-term as the original. REVIEW & COMPARE: Klairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner – Scented and Unscented!

The Face Shop Orchid Hand Cream * – I love the scent of orchid, so this hand cream was pure bliss when I used it; I preferred applying it at nighttime to relax me. The the finish is light so it won’t leave your hands overly greasy. At the same time, I don’t find it overly moisturizing, but it does enough. This is the second tube I’ve used up and I’m definitely considering having it on my nightstand again.

Weleda Everon Lip Balm – Best. Lip balm. EVER! It’s one of the more pricier lip balms I’ve purchased, but it lasts a long time both in my purse and on my lips, and it leaves a comfortable moisturized finish.


Not a lot of favourites this month, but I’ve also been testing out new products like crazy. You may see them featured in my next roundup since I didn’t use them enough to give a mention in this month’s. Either way, I’m happy I emptied a handful of products!

BEST OF BEAUTY 2017: SKINCARE

What. A. Year!

IMG_3434.jpg

2017 I’d say was the year of a lot of skincare discoveries. Not just my own curiosity and purchases, but some awesome opportunities to try products to review from PR samples. It also helped having a significant other use products as well so I can go through them faster!

From the past year, the skincare products I am mentioning in this post are the standouts. Like when I think about them and use them, it gives me the happy feels and I never want them to run out.

I tried my best to find a product under every possible category of skincare, but a girl can only mention so much until the happy feels disappear, and I don’t want to mention a product for the sake of filling in the category of a possible skincare item. And also, some of the categories may have more than one product mentioned teehehehee.

For those curious of my skin type:

  • Dry
  • Dehydrated
  • Can get oily by end of the daily
  • Acne-prone
  • Used to be super oily-skinned

Skin concerns:

  • Prevent & Prolong (preventative aging)
  • Acne
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Indented post-acne markers (lighter than deeply pitted marks)
