Happy New Year everyone!
Felt kinda bitter that everyone can enjoy the day off today while I have to work. Anyways, starting the first post of the year with a skincare products empties entry. Supposed to do a recipe blog entry for Chilled Lemon Cheesecake which I made the other night. It was easy and less tedious compared to Japanese Light Cheesecake as the former doesn’t require any baking but chilling inside fridge overnight.
Anyways, let’s not get sidetracked and let’s get starting now.
I am always extremely slow when it comes to finishing skincare products as I always alternate skincare products in between. Like for instance, I am currently having three facial cleansers sitting in my bathroom – Artistry Ideal Radiance Illuminating Cleanser, Shiseido Ibuki Gentle Cleanser and Biore Marshmallow Whip Facial Wash. But I had been using Biore Marshmallow Whip Facial Wash regularly over the past few days as I am totally in love with the texture. Will review about it someday. So, stay tune if you are interested.
I shall start from the products on the left to the right side in the picture and from the top to the bottom.
Laneige White Plus Renew Original Essence: I got this from Laneige, Parkson Bintang Megamall last September. This bottle lasted me about three months. I used to be an avid user for Shiseido White Lucent Intensive Spot Targeting Serum+ but the steep pricing made me think twice if I should be getting myself another bottle. That was when I ended up getting Laneige White Plus Renew Original Essence instead as the reviews had been positively good.
To be honest, I myself love this product very much since it smelled nice and it’s not as expensive as Shiseido White Lucent Intensive Spot Targeting Serum+. It worked equivalently well as Shiseido White Lucent Intensive Spot Targeting Serum+. Instead of repurchasing the same product after finishing Laneige White Plus Renew Original Essence, I got myself Artistry Ideal Radiance Illuminating Essence instead. Hopefully, it will be as good as I hoped it to be.
Price: RM180 (East Malaysia), B$75.90 (Brunei)
Shiseido Senka Perfect Oil: Got to know about this particular product when QiuQiu reviewed Shiseido Senka whole range of cleansing products. Unfortunately, it’s still not available in Brunei or East Malaysia and the nearest you can find it is probably in Kuala Lumpur (KL). That’s where I got mine. You can always order online from Sasa. This is an inexpensive and yet effective cleansing oil in removing dirt and grime on the face.
Price: RM39.90 (West Malaysia)
Kose Sekkisei Lotion: This has been my holy grail toner/lotion since I got it last March and I had been repurchasing it every time I finished a bottle. The reason why I bought the jumbo size was because it was on promotion at Kose, Boulevard Hypermarket last May. Kose was selling it for RM298 only and it came with a free piece of Kose Sekkisei Essence Mask. Used up two bottles of Kose Sekkisei Lotion last month, the jumbo size and the travel size.
Price: RM298 (East Malaysia, promotional price)
Estee Lauder Perfectly Clean Multi-Action Cleansing Gelée/Refiner: Got this from BestBuy World Malaysia few weekends ago and I used it up like in within a week time. Intended to leave it till I am going to Bangkok next month but it was too good to wait till then. That’s why. This facial cleanser came with micro beads which aren’t harsh on your skin and managed to exfoliate while you do your routine facial cleansing everyday.
Price: RM18 (7ml)
Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief: This is one good moisturizer which I had used. I used it as my night cream previously before starting with Elizabeth Arden Visible Difference Gentle Hydrating Cream Dry. It doesn’t have a strong scent but I wouldn’t say it’s completely fragrance-less either. It gives a smooth finishing after application without making your skin looks oily in the morning. Even for someone who has oily skin like mine.
Price: RM30 (BestBuy World Malaysia)
Laneige Deep Cleansing Oil Moisture: Got this from BestBuy World Malaysia as well previously. It has a slightly thicker texture compared to some other cleansing oils which I had previously tried. But it gets emulsified very easily and what’s best was that it doesn’t cloud eye vision.
Price: RM11 (BestBuy World Malaysia)
