Dermalogica Multivitamin Power Recovery Masque

September 22, 2007

Oh. My. God. I have found the best masque in the world. This masque has got concentrated vitamins and botanical extracts to calm environmentally-strerssed skin. Vitamin A firms, increases elasticity and moisturizes, while Vitamin C helps synthesize collagen which restores suppleness. Vitamin E and Pro-Vitamin B5 aids in healthy tissue regeneration. Licorice, comfrey and burdock help soothe the skin. Wow. That was a mouthful. Ok. This masque is so great with moisturizing the skin and helps with cell regeneration..which is great. The lady said that it helps with the lightening of acne scars, which I am a sucker for.

Anyways, after slathering on a thin layer of this masque and waiting for it to work its magic (I left it on for 15 minutes), I washed it off with a little warm water. This helped with everything. And I mean EVERYTHING! My sun-abused skin is calmed, the redness in my zits are gone, the fine lines under my eyes are not as obvious, and my skin feels plump, smooth and soft! Wow. What more can I ask? I beg you to go buy this masque NOW! I am truly impressed.

This has its own celebrity following as well..including Victoria Beckham, Lily Cole and many other models and celebrities.

Malin+Goetz Jojoba Face Scrub

September 22, 2007

I love face scrubs. My Laura Mercier face scrub is still with my best friend, who has not mailed me all my skincare products yet..but more on that next time. I decided that since I can’t use my Dermalogica Daily Microfoilant in the army, I needed a face scrub that would do what it does effectively and quickly. In came this jojoba face scrub. It’s got cilantro with amino acids, and this gives a hydrating exfoliation, while maintaining a pH balance. Jojoba meal and polyethylene beads are what scrubs the dead skin cells away. Also, it stimulates cell renewal and soothes the skin. It rinses off quickly to reveal smooth, even skin that looks radiant. The jojoba meal also helps to nourish the skin and reduces irritation. It’s super mild, and even though they say that it should be used 2-3 times a week, a daily facial scrub would be ok. Note: as long as you don’t scrub your skin for a prolonged period of time, chances of over-exfoliation is pretty much lessened. Just remember to focus on your clogged pores areas – i.e. your nose, chin and forehead. Remember to rinse properly and moisturize after that.

A little break

September 13, 2007

Hey all, I’m gonna be enlisted in the army today, and hence, my posts will be a little scarce-r. So sorry about this, and please do read the previous entries I’ve written! Thank you all for the great support you’ve been providing all these while!

MAC Cleansing Wipes

September 9, 2007

Stuck in the car or office or gym and have a full face of grease you can’t wait to wash off, and you don’t have any cleanser around? This is definitely for you. It’s huge (so it’s value for money!), very refreshing, and is super saturated! This has got some vitamin E infused in it, so that prevents your skin from drying out too much. A lot of those lousier, crappier cleansing wipes have got too much toner in it, and that dries your skin out. This is great. Make up slides right off, dirt and grease get zapped away, and your skin is left glowy and smooth! Also, the fact that it’s resealable means that it won’t dry out so easily. Yes, a lot of those wipes dry out even though the seal is on – very annoying. This doesn’t dry out, and is my staple for the gym and flights.

Lab Series Outdoor Skin Defense Spray SPF30

September 7, 2007

(There isn’t a pic of it)

I need an easy way of applying sunscreen since I’m going to be enlisted into the army next Thursday. This takes exactly 3 seconds to apply (3 squirts and I’m done!). It’s colourless, oil-free and most importantly, it’s non-acnegenic. What’s most important is that it’s water-resistant, sweat-resistant and is able to shield the skin from UVA/UVB rays and free radicals to help prevent premature aging (including fine lines and dark spots!). It’s also pretty nourishing with vitamins and antioxidants in it. it doesn’t smell awful, so that’s a plus as well. Love this new product. So easy to apply!!!

Marni is fantastic. After their fantastic run with the iconic balloon bag which everyone is lusting over, they come up with THIS fantastic bag that will make everyone drool over. From what I heard from a close friend who just got back from London, I hear that there are 2 sizes – one smaller and everyday sized bag, and another is a larger weekend sized bag. This shape is a modified version of the balloon bag, and looks so now. Other than just bags, Marni has done some fantastic child-like wooden and enamel accessories that will go great with this bag. Of course, one cannot forget the fantastic clothes that Marni has churned out with these few seasons too. All their great dresses and shoes look fabulous anytime and all the time. Go get this gorgeous Navy Patent Tote!!!
