● Clarins Hydra-Essentiel Intensive Moisture Quenching Bi-phase SerumCLARINS - Hydra-Essentiel Bi-Phase Serum
This serum is definitely my fav from Clarins! I literally recommend this product to my gals every single time when we go out for shopping. Like its name, this Bi-phase serum has two layers: an oil layer and a watery serum layer and they need to be mixed before application. This Hydra-Essentiel set is famous for this organic leaf of life extract; it can shield skin from dry air, severe weather and outdoor pollutants. It is designed for all skin types, especially normal and dry. My skin is combination and bit oily sometimes. To be honest I really don’t like to use product with oil because they will congest the pores and cause acne and blackheads. But on its package says it is non-comedogenic and I tried it on. Thank god my acne wasn’t getting worse at all!! It is pretty moisturizing since it has some oil in it but not oily on face at all and one pump is just enough. I was worrying about its heavy texture, but it feels really silky and soft. It is super lightweight and my face and neck got smoother and more hydrated. Its floral scent is something I have to mention; it smells so refreshing and unique. I bought full size later and use it every morning before the sunscreen and also makes sunscreen easier to apply. I don’t need primer anymore cuz it is so moisturizing and it doesn’t ball up my foundation at all. It is worth the money and becoming my holy grail. ● Clarins Hydra-Essentiel Moisture Reparing Lip Balm CLARINS - Hydra-Essentiel Moisture Replenishing Lip Balm
I bought this as an add-on item from a Clarins sales actually. As a lip balm hoarder, I just realized this product is what I have been craving for. This lip balm is suitable for people with dry and damaged lips. It has Blue Lotus Wax which is comforting and makes it rich in texture and yet easily absorbable. Like the serum from the same series, this lip balm also has a light floral scent which is really pleasant when using and its peachy color perfectly matches its smooth feeling on lips. It is bit thick though, but that’s why it can protects, hydrates and nourishes lips to make them feel comfier and look plumper. I still use it as a normal lip balm but I prefer to put a moderate layer on lips before bed because it is more like a lip mask for me now. When I used other lipsticks overnight there will always be annoying dead skin but after using this I dont find any dead skin anymore. It seals moisture in the lips from air and lips are no longer dried or chapped. That’s the reason why I cant find my lip exfoliator just because I haven’t used it for a long time. The price is bit higher than some lip balms from pharmacy but a little goes a long way. I have to say that I could not live without it.

Consolidate by Using a SPF Moisturizer Hybrid?
I know a lot of girls around me who used to wear sunscreen only in summer. While this is not a good practice. I used to be one of them. In the winter, I tend to be lazy on my skincare process. Sometimes I would skip SPF. But actually UV light is still there. Especially now that in the autumn and winter seasons, the ultraviolet rays are weaker than in summer, and the demand for sun protection in skincare is comparatively lower. This is why I prefer skincare products with SPF. I tend to feel that even autumn and winter creams with SPF15 are enough to deal with the cold winter. These multitasking daily moisturizers from Clarins slip sun protection into skin-care routine seamlessly. These 3 products from moisturizers to eye cream all contains 15 SPF which is not too much, but fair enough. They pull double duty. First of all, as a face cream, its main effect must be to repair the skin, so the core ingredient must be those skin care ingredients such as moisturizing, whitening, and anti-aging.Since there's SPF already in the formula. Even better, they do it without compromising texture, scent, or effectiveness. These series from Clarins not only moisturizes the skin but also protecting it from the sun's harmful UV rays. This does not mean that you do not need to wear sunscreen. The 15 SPF in skincare products is only a supplement. Sunscreen isn't just about protecting your skin from a sunburn; it also reduces your risk of aging, dark spots and other skin problems. In order to balance the skin feel and efficacy, it must be inferior to professional sunscreen in terms of efficacy. Generally, it will be more moisturizing CLARINS - Mission Perfection Eye SPF 15 CLARINS - Super Restorative Neck and Décolleté Concentrate CLARINS - Hydra-Essentiel Bi-Phase Serum

Lips, Lips, Lips! After trying dozens of lip products, I decide to share these of my favorites...
As a skincare hoarder, there is nothing more than lip balms in my drawer. Lip care has always been an important step in my whole routine, morning and night, or when I feel like I need it. Enough though with a lot of them, sometimes it is still hard to find the perfect one. I choose three lip balms here as my favorite ones to share with y’all. CLARINS - Hydra-Essentiel Moisture Replenishing Lip Balm This is definitely my favorite one of all time. It has a light pink color and cheesecake-like texture, and I really like its floral scent, sweet and refreshing. The blue lotus wax provides thick protection for lip, making them soft and shielded. My habit is to use it as a lip repairing mask, just to apply a thick layer on lips and go to bed. There are usually some dead skin cells on the top of my lip the next morning, and I will rinse a towel in warm water and put on the mouth to soften and exfoliate the dead skin cells away, and the lips become super soft like a baby’s lip.  Aesop - Protective Lip Balm SPF30 When I go out walking or traveling, this must-have lipstick is what I will bring and put in the pocket. It contains zinc oxide, Vitamin E, and castor seed provides natural protection from both strong sunlight and dry wind. This balmy lip balm has SPF 30 which is totally enough for daily use and it is suitable under all situations leaving my lips soft and silky. It is also easily spreadable and just a little bit is enough for both lips.   L'OCCITANE - Shea Butter Ultra Rich Lip Balm Actually, I bought this accidentally with other L’Occitane products, but its effect is overwhelming. Shea butter and jojoba seed oil make it super easy to apply and remain the softness and suppleness of lips. It has very strong milk and butter fragrance and may be too intense for some, but the overall performance is quite satisfying with its affordable price. There are lots of L’Occitane stores, and trying it in-store is a wise choice, and this one won’t let you down.

I used to think caudalie was f
I used to think caudalie was for older people like my mom and grandma 🙈 I’m not really sure what gave me this idea but it’s silly now that I think about it 😂 anyways a few months ago, I got a mini sample of the radiance serum and beauty elixir from sephora and fell in love! . The serum absorbs quickly and immediately brightens my complexion. I’m obsessed with the glow it gives my skin! It does feel sticky but goes away as soon as you apply moisturizer, so it’s not a problem to me. The beauty elixir is the most refreshing thing ever and smells like a spa! The smell was initially a bit too strong for my liking but I eventually got used to it. I love using this in the morning after I wash my face and before I start my routine because it makes me feel so awake! I’m also happy that the essential oils it contains didn’t break me out 😌

The best moisturizing serum for me | 👍🏻
The best moisturizing serum for me | 👍🏻
Here comes my favourite face serum — Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate~ I have oily skin and prone to acne. The primary issue for my skin is to keep the balance of water and oil, because the lack of water will lead to more oil. You know, it is so hard for oily skin to find a serum which is hydrated but not sticky at all. In order to guarantee the moisturizing effect, some highly acclaimed serum have very sticky texture, and that will make me feel very greesy and easy to cause acne. Luckily, I finally found this, Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate, the perfect moisturizing essence for me. Slide to see the texture, you can see that it is very thin and light. When you apply it on your face, it gets absorbed very fast, injecting nutrients and moisture quickly into the skin basal layer, and your face will feel very plump and refreshed, but without any greasy sense. If I don’t do a good job for hydration, I would wake up with an oily face, but with this serum, every morning I wake up with a pumped and barely oil-shine face. I think I will use this serum FOREVER!!!! If you are finding a moisturizing serum without greasy, try this!!!

LA MER - The Treatment Lotion SIZE: 5 oz/ 150 mL $195.00 CAD Another star product of LA MER. This is also one of their best selling products. This is a fast-absorbing treatment targeting dry, normal and combination. My mom is a sensitive and she finds it very gentle on her face as well. The texture is much thicker than most in the market. However, it is Super moisturizing without the stickiness and not sticky at all. I use it after cleansing, and before applying Serum and moisturizer. I feel like this is an essential product! I always have it in stock and use it when my skin is in worst conditions. It’s really hydrated and helped calm my irritated skin, reduce redness and provide some hydration. I also noticed that when I added this. All my serums and moisturizers and creams seemed to work so much better. It really sets up the skin to receive the proceeding steps and absorb the product fully. This bottle is almost empty and I’ll keep purchasing this product. Definitely top of my list for years and highly recommended. SK-II - Facial Treatment Essence (Pitera Essence) SIZE: 2.5 oz/ 75 mL $129.00 CAD This SKII is a powerful treatment for normal, dry and combination to reduce the appearance of dark spots and fine lines due to dryness. It’s a very lightweight liquid. The main ingredient Pitera is the patent of SKII that contains over 50 micronutrients like vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and natural acids to condition skin. As a combination, I really love this lotion. This is my third bottle. I use bare hand to put on face. It looks just like water but it’s magic water with all the ingredients that helps make your face hydrated, smooth, texture color of the skin more even. After 2 years of using it, my skin appears more radiant and is noticeably softer to the touch. It's like getting a mini facial at home, and a little goes a long way. If you donot mind the high price too much then it is worth it. It works, overnight skin becomes smooth and radiance, and after a few days it looks tighten. Pretty sure using this resulted in my cystic acne disappearing. I have to say, these two Worth Every Penny!

I’ve been using the midnight recovery concentrate for a couple years now and it’s something I can’t seem to quit. I’m always surprised by how lightweight this is for me under my moisturizer. During the winter months it serves as an extra bit of protection from dryness. It does the job though. There have been times where I’ve been so busy and tired and the thing I can credit keeping my skin together is this. It’s helped heal up some scars and wear off the fatigue on my face. I know not everyone enjoys essential oils in their products so I guess that’s one star off. It’s never bothered me personally and the smell is really calming. It’s really a great cap off to my night routine. And a little goes a long way so I always end up having this for long periods of time.

I received a sample of the Shiseido ultimune in a gift with purchase, and gave it a try. I was so surprised as to how well it worked for my skin (sensitive, dry combination), I had to purchase the full size! This serum claims to strengthen your skin barrier over time making your skin appear youthful and glowy. My skin concerns prior to using this serum were some hyperpigmentation on some acne scars and dullness. When I started using this serum, I have noticed my face have appeared a lot more even, my skin texture has improved and it just looks super healthy! The texture of this product is a clear lightweight gel! It’s a little bit sticky, but it goes away. There is fragrance in this product - I do tend to stay away from fragranced products due to my sensitive skin, but I had no reaction to it. Just be aware. This product is very pricey, retailing at about $90CAD for 1oz. However, I believe in taking care of your skin and investing in skincare so I believe it is worth the price as it did wonders for my skin. I would recommend you guys to try out a sample first! Before committing to the full size, in case it does not work out on your skin as everyone has different skin types! I would have to give this product 5 stars!

You Don’t Think You Need Essence Until You Come Across This!
You Don’t Think You Need Essence Until You Come Across This!
If you’re a skincare addict like me, you know as well as I do that glycolic acid is such a power ingredient when it comes to minimizing fine lines, evening out the skin tone, treating huge pores, and sloughing off dead skin cells. So, when I came across this essence, I knew I had to try it out. CAUDALIE - Vinoperfect Brightening Glycolic Essence   I wasn’t a fan of essences, after my first ever purchase a few years ago (that was the iconic SK-II Pitera Essence). Unfortunately, that expensive essence didn’t really do anything on my skin. My faith for essences has been revived when I saw this virtually sitting on Sephora while I was browsing. Since I loved the brand’s hydration serum from its Vinosource range, I thought this essence will do wonders on my skin the way its serum has done. Turns out, I was right!   Caudalie Vinoperfect Brightening Glycolic Essence attributes its powerhouse brightening and smoothing features to glycolic acid, white peony, and Caudalie’s signature organic grape water.   Glycolic essence is an exfoliant; it removes dead skin cells and gently sloughs off dry skin that’s lurking on top of our faces. It’s an effective ingredient for revealing a newer, fresher layer of skin, rendering us a more youthful look. It also assists in collagen production, which therefore helps in minimizing fine lines and wrinkles and maintaining skin’s youthful glow and elasticity. White peony unclogs and tightens huge pores, making our skin look younger and tighter. It’s a natural anti-inflammatory agent, which aids in treating skin inflammation and treats redness, rashes, and skin scarring. It’s Mother Earth’s natural brightening ingredient, eventually leading to fading of scars. The brand’s signature organic grape is a wonderful moisture-sealing and calming agent.   This essence felt hydrating on my skin, and I felt like it allows the rest of my skincare product to be absorbed by my skin easier, making them work twice as hard to give me the best skin ever. The combination of glycolic acid, white peony, and organic grape water is the perfect hybrid of ‘chemical’ exfoliation and sealing of hydration after, rendering us youthful-looking, glowing, and evened out skin tone. I can’t recommend this enough!   Another good news is that it’s vegan and is made from 100% natural ingredients! Winner!
