Cheap and cheery @garniersg #skincare to brighten the start of your week! For the price, these aren't bad - the yogurt #sleepingmask has niacinamide as the 3rd ingredient, so that's a great buy for the price, and the #micellarwater looks pretty good too with a fairly good ingredients list. The only one I didn't quite like was the #brightening foam #cleanser - I mean it does foam, and really cleans, but it was a little bit too much on my skin. But if you have oily skin, or like squeaky clean cleansers, you'll really like this! #clozette #beauty
If you like #skincare with a little bit of oomph, the @lovephilosophy classic #hopeinajar is now being revamped! The #renewedhopeinajar is a an #anti aging #moisturizer, and for me the highlight of this is the small amount of #glycolicacid in the ingredients list (also present in the original version I believe), which functions as a chemical exfoliant to help skin turnover. I do love my glycolic acid, so I'm looking forward to testing this out! #clozette #beauty
Eczema sufferers can finally rejoice! @lrpsg #lipkar has just launched, and it's a new #bodycare range out specially for eczema skin. The #showergel and #hydrating fluid are two of the Lipkar range I have, and they do a good job of cleaning and moisturizing eczema skin without triggering any flare ups! Also from now to 30 June, check out #larocheposay's #ShareABlueBalloon campaign at bit.ly/ShareABlueBalloon2017 to find out how you can help to support eczema sufferers! #clozette #beauty #skincare
Lobang time! @palladiosg is launching their new #velvetmattemetallic, with a launch event at @ion_orchard @guardian_singapore, 26th & 27th May, 6pm-8pm! They'll be giving out 100 free Velvet Matte Metallics per day too - just comment on the event post on #PalladioSG's FB page (keep a watch out for it) and tell them what your favourite shade is! Don't say I never share :) #clozette #beauty #makeup
Really loving the @kiehlssg #butterstick #lipbalms! I have 3 shades of this #tintedlipbalm, and it's advertised as containing #coconutoil and #coldpressedlemonbutter - and from the ingredients list, this actually has coconut oil as the first ingredient, and also has a bunch of other butters and oils like shea butter and sunflower oil! My favourite shade is Touch of Berry because I love my deeper lip shades, hehe. #clozette #beauty #makeup
If you want a moisturizing but still pigmented #liptint, you'll love the @etudehousesingapore #LipRichVividTint range of 10 shades with bright, bold colour that can be sheered out or layered for a punch of colour! My personal favourite is Melo Wine PP501, because I love my plums and wines! The ingredients are also include emollients, waxes and squalane, so it shouldn't dry out your lips as much! #clozette #beauty #makeup
Launched this month in May, some @lorealmakeup travel essentials #makeup! This includes the #truematch blur cream, a #primer with optical blurring properties, more #mattelipstick shades (really pigmented as #loreal #lipsticks are), true match silky #foundation (in a nifty #cushion packaging), and the lucent magique glow #blush, which has subtle shimmer rather than an OTT glow. And a book, because I travel with one, though I sadly haven't been reading much lately! #clozette #beauty
#flowers always make everything prettier! Showing off my #bouquet with #makeup - #lipsticks, #eyeshadows, #blush and #bbcushion and #primer from @benefitcosmeticssg @rimmellondonsg @lorealmakeup and @thefaceshop_sg #clozette #beauty
Love #prints and #moisturizer? Then you should check out @thebodyshopsg x @eleykishimoto1 collaboration - their #vitamine #moisturecream has gotten new limited packaging! And as far as formula goes, this is a pretty emollient occlusive basic moisturizer that doesn't feel too heavy on skin. It's great if you spend a lot of time in dry environments (air-con office, dry weather) - the ingredients list is attached (sorry if it's a bit blur, I had some trouble taking that photo). #clozette #beauty #skincare
Finally got around to reviewing the @kiehlssg Calendula & Aloe Soothing #Hydration #Masque! This #mask is meant to hydrate and soothe skin, and it does indeed have good hydrating properties with a time-release hydrogel (Lubrajel) inside, and the aloe vera also provides some soothing properties too. More on my blog if you're keen - what looks like a simple mask actually has more to it! #clozette #beauty #skincare
Launching at Tangs Vivocity in June - @sum37_singapore #skincare! If you like #kbeauty and plant-based products with aromatic scents, you'll probably like #sum37 (pronounced "soom" not "sum" by the way - learned that one today!). Three skincare lines are here - the products shown here are the #hydration range, showcasing the #serum, #moisturizer and #ampoule. More in my IG stories! #clozette #beauty
I love the budget-friendly drugstore #mattelipstick options we now have, including @rimmellondonsg #TheOnly1Matte #lipstick! 9 shades of #lipsticks with a good range of colour, and an affordable price point at $18.90! Definitely worth checking out! #clozette #beauty #makeup
Probably the cutest thing I've seen this year! @thefaceshop_sg x @dreamworksanimation @trolls #makeup collection - complete with sparkly cases! I have the #eyeshadow #palettes and the tone up #cushion cases! Not gonna lie, this is so buy-worthy just for the packaging alone! #clozette #beauty
Some #roses with the new @palladiosg velvet matte metallic cream #lipcolor - these are like #liquidlipstick with a very subtle metallic finish and an emollient feel on lips. If you love vampy shades, these are definitely going to be up your alley! #clozette #beauty #makeup
Say #NoToDryNails with @sallyhansensg #SHMoistureRehab - an overnight #nailserum that claims to repair and moisturizer nails, even over dried manicures! It's available now at S$14.50! I do have peeling nails so I'm always glad to have more #nailtreatment options! #clozette #beauty
The @etudehousesingapore #LipRichVividTint range is now here! A full range of 10 #LipTint shades with bright, bold colour! My personal favourite is Melo Wine PP501, a gorgeous cooltoned wine shade! These can be sheered out or layered for a punch of colour, and the ingredients are pretty moisturizing too - I've included the ingredients list and you can see there are some emollients, waxes and squalane in there too! #clozette #beauty #makeup
If you like #masks that leave a cooling (but not stinging!) feeling on your skin, you might just like the new @kiehlssg Calendula & Aloe Soothing #Hydration #Masque! This #mask is meant to hydrate and soothe skin! I think the ingredients list is pretty good too (attached photos of the ingredients list for you guys), I like that the advertised aloe vera is actually the third ingredient. #clozette #beauty #skincare
On wednesdays we wear pink! And a whole lot of #lipstick shades too! Hope these #flowers brighten your midweek! The #lipsticks are the new #RougeMagique, which give you #ultiMattelips with no overly drying feeling! 20 shades in all with awesome pigmentation, and under $20 too! #clozette #beauty #makeup
If you haven't yet, the next time you're at @sephorasg you should check out these @origins.sg #flowerfusion #masks! These are #sheetmasks with #flower #essentialoil added to the #mask, in 6 varieties: rose, orange, lavender, violet, jasmine, and raspberry. So if you love the idea of #essentialoils in your #sheetmask, you'll really love these. As a bonus, the essential oil also provides a relaxing scent too. #clozette #beauty #skincare
Light up that Monday with @vichy_sg #aqualiathermal #oilinwater #essence! This has little droplets of oil in a water base to deliver the best of both worlds to your skin! Also claims to contain squalene, vitamin e, and #hyaluronicacid for hydration! #clozette #beauty #skincare
