I know that I used to blog about skincare product empties like once in every two months but pardon me for doing it now because I am running out of topic to blog about. I don’t have much new skincare products tor review about apart from several few facial sheet masks. And there’s not gonna be new food posts until few days later when I have the time to dine outside. Mom will be bringing grandma back to hometown next weekend, so hopefully you’ll be seeing pictures of home cooked dishes again soon. LOL!
I managed to finish like four different skincare products in the month of October. All of the above four skincare products were my current personal favorites but unfortunately, I only managed to restock the Laneige Clear-C Effector but not the rest.
Shiseido Multi-Defense UV Protector SPF50 PA+++: As some of you may have known, I am not an avid user of sunscreen until my holiday trip to Singapore recently whereby I was exposed to the importance of sunscreens. I do use some sunscreens from Laneige previously but they broke out on my skin rather seriously, hence my distrusts towards sunscreens. But after seeing that my skin tone had darkened by a few shades when I came back from Singapore last May, I decided that it’s time to invest on a decent sunscreen. And that’s when Shiseido Multi-Defense UV Protector SPF50 PA+++ came into the scene.
I was sold the moment when the BA at Shiseido squeezed a generous amount of the sunscreen onto my arms and hands and asked me to gently massage them onto my skin. What I liked about this sunscreen was that it doesn’t leave a greasy or sticky feeling albeit I slathered too much of it onto my skin and it leaves a smooth and matte finishing. Best of all, no white casting like some sunscreens may leave. It wasn’t priced cheaply for a 30ml sunscreen but it was absolutely worth it.
Laneige Clear-C Effector: I was introduced to this product few years back but the BA at Laneige told me that I might not like the feeling of it on my skin considering that I have quite an oily skin. But ever since I had been using Kose Seikisho Clear Lotion in which both had the same texture, I thought why not try Laneige Clear-C Effector as well and see whether it lives up to the hypes for the product.
Loved it after few days of using the product as I could see that my skin complexion had improved greatly. My skin looked smoother. Even my colleagues noticed the difference on my skin lately. LOL! And I am currently on my second bottle of this product. So, you could imagine how impressed I am with this product.
Kose Sekkisei White Liquid Wash: Got this facial cleanser in a trial pack with two other bestselling products of the Sekkisei line – Lotion and Emulsion at the duty free shop of Changi International Airport. I used Kose Sekkisei White Powder Wash previously but I preferred the liquid version more albeit the BA suggested me to go for the powder version since it’s more for oily combination skin. But I personally find the liquid version to be working well on my oily skin. Doesn’t give me massive breakouts and doesn’t seem to worsen my oily skin condition either.
Clinique All About Eyes: There are two versions of this eye cream, one is the rich version and the other is the normal version. The one which I was using previously was the normal version, which I got from BestBuy World Malaysia few months ago. Albeit the texture looked a little bit rich and oily, but it gets absorbed onto the skin really quick with a matte finishing. It does keep the eyes areas moisturized but doesn’t do much good in terms of reducing the appearances of fine lines. I like this eye cream but not good enough for me to get myself a full size bottle. I am currently using Artistry Youth Xtend Enriching Eye Cream.
Price: RM23 (5ml)
