Battle of lotions from Clarins
I quite like the products from Clarins and its colorful lotions should be a product line that has enjoyed quite a good reputation among customers. I like how they feel and their price is quite reasonable. So with these elements combined, I’ve made some purchases and today I would like to review these three toners from Clarins and maybe you could get a sense of which one is the best for you after reading. 1. Multi-active Treatment Essence Price: $35.00| 6.7 Fl. Oz. Suitable for: rather young skin. All skin types Review: this one has the lowest price among the three and it’s most suitable for younger people. I usually prefer using it in spring and summer when my demand is pure hydration. But as you may know, when the skin is fully moisturized, it would also brighten and becomes plumper. The results could be seen in quite just a few weeks. And the texture is more between a lotion and a moisturizer. 2. Extra-Firming Treatment Essence Price: $60.00| 6.7 Fl. Oz. Suitable for: people aged from 25 to 35 and except for super oily skin type Review: it would be stickier than the last one and provide even more hydration than the last one. But after use, it would be quickly absorbed into the skin without feeling sticky on the face. Autumn and winter would be better seasons to use it. It really smoothens the face and helps the subsequent products to be absorbed better. 3. Super Restorative Treatment Essence Price: $60.00| 6.7 Fl. Oz. Suitable for: people who are in pursuit of anti-aging and with a dry skin type Review: this one was actually purchased by my mom and I’ve tried it several times. I found it was a little bit too moisturizing for me. Those with extremely dry skin would totally fall in love with it. My mom recommends using it with the double serum from Clarins and that would save your skin in the dry and freezing winter!
My simple solution for stressed skin
I guess we are all quite familiar with the creams from First aid beauty. There are so famous that sometimes we would ignore other wonderful products from this brand and there is one that I would like to introduce to you. It’s just a simple product, easy to use and the relief it brings makes me feel so relaxed and comfortable that I would like to share with you my experience of using it. Okay so let’s begin. 🎈what is it: ultra repair wild oat hydrating toner from First Aid Beauty 🎈how much is it: $22| 6oz 🎈key ingredients: wild oats are actually the ingredient you could find in many of their Star products. They can help soothe and relieve irritated skin and this is also what the brand is best at. There is also colloidal oatmeal for soothing and protection functions. Beside, there are natural ingredients such as honey and propo is extracts that ca provide nourish. They are all so gentle. 🎈how and when to use it: use cotton pads and apply toner to them. Then gentle swipe over the face which is clean and dry. I would usually use it before night. 🎈review: I feel such a relief when I slowly and gently swipe it all over my face and it just soothes the stressed and irritated or maybe “polluted” skin in such a nice way. I would feel my face double cleaned and hydrated and left in a good state for further serums and moisturizers. It won’t feel tight after use and just a little would go a long way. Highly recommended!!
My favorite acne spot treatment
I would suffer from periodical breakout and that will be the time I feel very depressed. So I was always searching for acne treatment that could heal the infectious spots quickly. This acne treatment is quite famous: I believe you’ve seen it somewhere before. And I bought mine at Anthropology when I saw another custom was picking it and I asked her what it was for. She told me that it’s a savior for her acne breakouts and I just bought this one. I am gladly she shared that information with me and I would like you to know more about that product now. 💎what is it: Mario Badescu’s drying lotion 💎how much is it: $17 | 29ml 💎about this brand: Mario Badescu was founded in New York in 1967. It is famous for its simple yet effective solution for skin concerns and it’s those plant extracts that are taking the effects. 💎how to use it: as I said, simple but effective. It is renowned for its ability to dry up surface blemishes overnight. When you are suffering a breakout, just use dip a cotton swab into the sentiment( so don’t shake the bottle before use) at the bottom of the bottle. Then just dab directly on the surface blemish. Let dry and just wash it off the next morning. 💎the effects: it works best on whiteheads for me. Just those little liquid-filled spots that are still active which may develop into pimples. So it could be seen as an early prevention. And it just works. It won’t develop into anything more serious. I am quite satisfied with the results. It also let me solve the problems early and won’t be bothered by acne scars left if nothing is done to treat it.

How about this product from Jeffree Star?
I know how Jeffre Star is famous for its eyeshadow palette and the other day when I was just browsing their website, I saw this cute little thing and I just got tired of the Nars under eye concealer so I purchased these two. There are a total of 48 shades and I wasn’t sure which one could fit my skin best so I chose these two to try out. Now that’s see how it performs. 🕶what is it: Magic Star from Jeffree Star 🕶how much is it: $22 🕶a full review: the two shades of mine C5 and C6. I know this is a little bit expensive but it’s worth every penny. So first of all, it provides a high coverage and that’s the most important reason why we would buy a concealer right? I would use it to cover my dark circles and it would be flawless.. It is extremely pigmented and it blends perfectly. Besides, it could last hours and house without creasing. That’s the best thing I love about this product. I’ve seen such a great improvement when I switched from Nars to this product since my under eye area could be super dry. Last but not least, as you can see, the packaging is breathtaking and I really wouldn’t mind keeping it in my makeup collection. 🕶One extra tip: always carefully set your under eye makeup. You could try using a mini beauty blender to bake this area and it just won’t keep in that way all day long.

3-step skincare routine when I am super lazy
You know what I am talking about right? Sis, there are times when we’ve had a super long day and just don’t have enough time and energy left for a skin care procedure with six or seven steps.. so in such a case, I would skip some of the steps and just go through these three steps which would get me prepare for the long time at a fastest pace. So here are the products that I use: 🌿 Clinic Take the day off cleansing balm This is of great cost-performance ratio and I can totally afford it. I would be generous with the amount, using a lot of the products to cleanse my face and take off the makeup. It’s all natural and I don’t need to worry that it may irritate my eyes. And my face would never feel tight after use, as is the case with so many other cleansing products, which means I could skip the step of face wash😬 🌿 Guerlain Super Aqua Lotion When it comes to lotion, what I pursue in a lazy day routine would definitely be more and more and more moisture and this is exactly what I am looking for. It can be absorbed to the skin very very quickly, which is such a bonus when we desperately want to go to bed for sleep. And it would leave the skin sticky, even though it is extremely hydrated. 🌿Shiseido Ultimate Power Infusing Concentrate I feel like I don’t need to talk much about this product since it’s such a hyped product. And I just feel so assured when I am using this one. The result is never disappointing: the next morning I would still find my skin glowy and hydrated. But I wouldn’t recommend opting for this routine too frequently since the fragile eye area and lips are not cared for. But when you are running out of time, I would totally suggest you try it!
You have to try these eyeshadows from Sephora!
Tell me you have also been attracted by stacks of eyeshadows when you were just browsing around Sephora. And that day I was actually heading to MAC in the mood of picking out some eyeshadows to complement my eyeshadow collection. By that I mean some special shades that won’t be included in most eyeshadow palette. Then somehow I just thought about those eyeshadows at Sephora.. I mean since their packages look so similar, it cannot be counted as a coincidence. So instead of going to MAC, I just went to a Sephora and chose these five little cute eyeshadow that I am going to review now. 💦Texture and price: $9 for each and there are four textures for you to choose from : Glitter finish Metallic finish Shimmer finish Matte finish The smoothness of each eyeshadow varies from shade to shade. So it would be best if you could try them out at Sephora. But since the price is less than half of that of MAC, it surely is not so smooth as the $25 one. 💦 Lasting ability: their lasting ability also varies but I would say they are in the team with rather long-lasting effect and they are also highly pigmented as you can see from my swatch. 💦my choice and my favorite: some shades were out out of stock even though I liked them very much.. such as N292 and N205. I picked out these five shades after 1 hour and I’d say I am quite satisfied with them and my favorite one is N344, which is so unique and I always got complimented when I wear this. Nice purchase without regrets!
