Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Aquacealer Review

Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Aquacealer Review

I have been a fan of the Tarte Maracuja Creaseless Concealer so when Tarte released a new concealer with the Rainforest of the Sea collection, I immediately ordered it off the Tarte website without swatching it in person. The Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Aquacealer ($26 USD) is said to be a “lightweight, 12-hour concealing serum with skin-soothing benefits that provides targeted, medium, buildable coverage.” I picked up the shade in “fair” which is the lightest shade in the range.

The Body Shop Vitamin E range for all your skincare needs

I have another skincare review today and I’ll be reviewing The Body Shop’s Vitamin E Moisture Cream ($30.90 SGD) and the brand new Vitamin E Aqua Boost Essence Lotion ($29.90 SGD). Vitamin E, as we all know is good for our health and it can be found in many types of food including vegetable oils, cereals, fruits, eggs, vegetables etc. Put Vitamin E in your skincare and you get antioxidants and hydration without having to eat the aforementioned food! HAHA. Kidding! Eat a well-balanced diet, yeah?

Now formulated with vitamin E, plumping hyaluronic acid and wheatgerm oil, its moisturising effects can help ward off dryness. Use after cleansing and toning, as part of your personalised skincare programme.

The Body Shop Skin Defence Multi-Protection Essence SPF 50 review

I live in a country that’s practically summer all year round so it’s extremely unlikely that I suffer from vitamin D deficiency. While getting some vitamin D is good, spending too much time in the sun can actually cause premature ageing! 🙁 Urban dwellers, such as myself, are exposed to heavier concentrations of pollutants. All the free radicals, secondhand smoke, staring at screens all day and exposure to UV rays play a huge role in damaging your skin.

Meet The Body Shop Skin Defence Multi-Protection Essence SPF 50 PA ++++ ($34.90 SGD). It’s an all new sunscreen from The Body Shop which just launched in April.

The best is yet to come with Philosophy’s Ultimate Miracle Worker range

What’s one of the most depressing words in the dictionary? “Ageing”. Yup. I’m not even 22 yet and I’ve started to notice fine lines under my eyes. Oh the horror! But I’m not panicking because Philosophy’s new Ultimate Miracle Worker range might be just the miracle I need. From emulsions to creams to serum-in-creams, this range has got me covered!

Philosophy Ultimate Miracle Worker range 2016

Our hectic lifestyles and exposure to environmental aggressions has caused our skin to age faster. As such, it’s crucial to start taking steps to delay the signs of ageing. I was recently given the opportunity to test out Philosophy’s Ultimate Miracle Worker range, and here are my thoughts. Please note that I did not receive any compensation for this review and none of the links in this post are affiliated links. So, I was beyond excited to try the products as I’m a big fan of Philosophy’s Hope In A Jar line. I must admit, as I’m still young and certainly not the age group this range is targeted at, so I may not be the best judge of this skincare range. Nevertheless, I put the products to the test and I’m very much in love with them.

Achieve beautiful lips like Song Hye-kyo from Descendants of the Sun

Like all Descendants of the Sun fans, I am sad that the show has come to an end. Before this show, I was not a Korean drama girl. But all my friends were watching the show so I decided to watch one episode to see what the hype was about. One episode led to another and before I knew it, I absolutely love the chemistry between Song Joong-ki and Song Hye-kyo. They are both adorable together. 🙂 Throughout the show, Kang Mo-Yeon (played by Song Hye-kyo) has a natural lip colour. She is usually seen wearing a light pink or coral shade. As most of you would know, Song Hye-kyo is the brand ambassador for Laneige, hence, she uses Laneige products throughout the show. Namely the Laneige Two-tone lip bar and BB cushion.

Aren’t they the cutest couple, ever? #relationshipgoals

Song Hye-kyo Kang Mo Yeon lipstick
The lipstick she wears in the elevator scene in episode 1 is none other than the Laneige Two-tone lip bar in No. 11 Juicy Pop. Sadly, Juicy Pop is out of stock throughout Singapore! This reminds me of the time My Love from the Star fans rushed to buy the Cheon Song-yi lipstick aka YSL Rouge Pur Couture #52 Rosy Coral. That particular colour was said to be sold out all across Asia at that time.
