Today's #texturetuesday is this @drcilabo.sg Aqua Collagen Gel! Doesn't it look so fluffy in the jar? It's basically a #moisturizer that's a good pick for dry and/or aging skin. It's pretty moisturizing, and works well under other makeup and #skincare. Because this is so emollient, I really only use a little each time and I think this jar is going to pretty much last me forever lol! ___________ #clozette #beauty #drcilabo #drcilabosg #drcilabo代購 #skincareroutine #skincareproducts #skincareblogger #skincarecommunity #asianskincare #asianskincareproducts #asianbeauty #asianbeautygram #asianbeautyblogger #rasianbeauty #japaneseskincare #japanesebeauty #beautyblog #abcommunity #abblogger #rasianskincare #flatlay #texturetuesdays #beautybloggers
#IngredientsLowdown | Spritz away the Monday blues with these @bioessence_sg #BioWater #skincare products! These are fairly simply formulated, and mostly consist of face mists, but I can definitely see myself using these: 💦The 3 #facemist products all have a slightly different formula - the "simplest" formula has just niacinamide and a plant extract (Eugenia gracilis), while the formulas with more bells and whistles also have oat kernel extract, vitamin c, and one variant even has shea butter extract - I do think this miiight just be the first time I'm seeing this in #facespray product! I like all 3 formulas - it's all going to be a matter of personal preference here. 💦The #micellarwater has a very well-established formula for a #micellarcleansingwater - water, solvent, and an emollient cleansing agent. It's going to work as a gentle #micellar cleanser, which is good. It advertises itself as alcohol-free, which is true, and a nice plus. There are a couple of skincare ingredients (niacinamide, Eugenia gracilis extract) which are a bonus too. _________ #clozette #beauty #bioessence #bioessencesg #sgbeauty #sgskincare #asianskincare #asianbeauty #skincarecommunity #skincareroutine #skincarereview #skincareregime #skincareproducts #skincarejunkie #skincareaddict #rasianbeauty #abcommunity #abblogger #beautybloggers #beautyjunkie
Finally got these @altheakorea #loosepowder that I've had my eye on! The #loosepowders come in 3 shades - beige, translucent, and lavender (which is the newest shade and has special packaging). It goes on the #altheakorea website for $6, and the size of the powders is pretty small (hence the price), they're definitely smaller than normal powders. These look nice though, and I can't wait to try them out! ____________ #clozette #althea #altheaangels #beauty #makeup #cosmetics #cosme #kbeauty #kmakeup #koreanbeauty #koreanmakeup #koreancosmetics #koreanbeautyproduct #asianmakeup #asianbeauty #rasianbeauty #abcommunity #abblogger #makeupjunkie #koreanbeautyblogger #koreabeauty #facepowder #flatlay #powder
More in Stories | Swipe for #sparkle! The theme of this year's @thebodyshopsg #holiday2018 collection is #EnchantedbyNature and there is the usual wide range of #thebodyshop #makeup, skincare and bath and body products we've come to expect! The limited edition holiday scents this year are peppermint candy cane, vanilla marshmallow and berry bon bon, and coming back is the very aptly named The Sparkler #highlighter, now in two shades - a gold and pink (which is new)! I've swatched the new pink one, and it really is every bit as sparkly as the old one! Really great for that glitz! __________ #clozette #thebodyshopsg #tbssg #shimmer #highlighters #highlighterswatches #highlighteronfleek #highlighteronpoint #cosmetics #cosme #shimmermakeup #makeupjunkie #makeupblogger #makeupobsessed #makeuplover #swatch #beautyjunkie #beautybloggers
The new @pixibeauty #Matte Last #LiquidLip shades are really gorgeous! The new shades are the first 5 from bottom, and they are a good expansion of the range. The previous 5 existing shades were all MLBB shades, so the new shades offer bolder, brighter options! I love it all! _____________ #pixibeautysg #clozette #beauty #makeup #pixibeauty #pixibypetra #pixipretties #cosmetics #cosme #flatlay #makeupjunkie #makeupjunkies #makeupcommunity #liquidlipstick #liquidlipsticks #liquidlips #matteliquidlipstick #mattelips #makeuptime #beautycommunity #beautyproducts #beautyjunkie #makeupaddiction #beautybloggers
#IngredientsLowdown | Need some shut eye? The @estlab.global Optimalift A+ #skincare range actually has some interesting products, with formulations to boot! Here's a quick rundown: 👀The Multi Repair Eye #Essence is an interesting product, with peppermint leaf water as the 2nd ingredient - definitely the first time I'm seeing this in an eye product for sure! Other ingredients include emollients and humectants (including shea butter), and also niacinamide. 👀The Eye Contour #mask also has a fairly unique formulation too, with aloe leaf juice as he 2nd ingredient. There are also the usual humectants, and on smaller amount some notable plant extracts and ingredients (soy, rice, salix alba bark), for those who like this sort of thing. 👀The #Antiwrinkle #eyecream is probably the most "normally" formulated. But that doesn't mean it's bad, lol! As an eye cream it does the job, and is formulated to not feel greasy despite having emollients like shea butter, through a use of absorbers and silicones. Of notable inclusion are a few peptides in small amounts, which are always nice to have too! So that's it for my ingredients rundown! Also if anyone is watching @asntm Cycle 6, you miiight have noticed that #EstLab is one of the sponsors!

It's #texturetuesday and this one is all about @lumingtang_sg #skincare - the products here are their hero product the Creme de Marie (largest pot up front, a #moisturizer named after the brand's founder), an #eyecream (smaller pot), and a #lipbalm (small pot with pink tint). As far as #naturalskincare products go, those who like their plant extracts infused with Asian flavour will like the range - the range is based off various Chinese teas (oolong tea, white tea, etc.), rice and other similar plant extracts. Textures are really nice too - nothing too heavy over here! __________ #clozette #beauty #lumingtangsg #lumingtang #naturalskincareproducts #naturalskinproducts #naturalbeauty #naturalbeautyproducts #naturalbeautycare #asianskincare #asianbeauty #rasianbeauty #abcommunity #abblogger #abbloggers #abskincare #skincarecommunity #skincarenatural #skincareaddiction #skincarelover #instaskincare
Swipe for #swatches of the @givenchybeauty #RougeLiquide #liquidlipsticks! These are creamy and pigmented, with a cream finish. The bold neutral red shade 309 is the hero shade of the launch, and I'm told is like Givenchy's "signature" red shade and is available in every lip product line from the brand. So if you like reds, that's worth a shot! For me personally, the MLBB, office-friendly and 107 is my personal favourite! __________________ #clozette #givenchysg #givenchy #givenchybeauty #givenchymakeup #givenchy代購 #makeup #beauty #makeupjunkie #makeupaddict #liquidlipsticks #makeuplife #makeupobsessed #makeuplover #beautyaddict #beautyjunkie #beautycommunity #makeupaddiction #highendmakeup #cosmetics #cosme #swatch #makeupswatches #makeupswatch #swatchsunday #ThisIsNotWhatYouThink
Yaaas @shuuemura at it again with the killer #foundation and #primer products! The new #makeup products here are the Lightbulb Fluid Foundation, which is a dewier, lighter version of the original Lightbulb Foundation. Coverage is buildable but medium, so it's great for those who want a lighter finish. There's also a cushion version of the foundation too, if you want something more travel-friendly. These are recommended to be used with the #BlockBooster primer, which also has SPF50 as a bonus! ________________ #clozette #shuuemurasg #shuuemura #myglowid #makeup #beauty #cosme #jbeauty #jmakeup #asianmakeup #asianbeauty #rasianbeauty #abblogger #abcommunity #asianbeautyblogger #makeupjunkie #LightbulbFoundation #lightbulbfluidfoundation #makeupaddiction #makeupblog #makeupblogger #makeupaddict #makeupobsessed #makeupoftheday
#IngredientsLowdown | The @cetaphilsg Restoraderrm #skincqre line has officially been rebranded as Pro AD Derma, and the new packaging is definitely much sleeker than the old one, while still retaining the medical roots of the brand, as well as the formulas we know and love that are dry skin and sensitive skin-friendly. Check out some ingredient highlights: 💦The #ProADDerma #bodymoisturizer is a very nice formula that's pretty emollient-rich (capric/caprylic triglycerides, sunflower seed oil, shea oil, cetearyl alcohol, cetyl alcohol), and some humectants (glycerin, pentylene glycol). This is a very rich formula that is definitely going to be a relief for sensitive or dry skin, or skin with a damaged barrier. Also, I do like that there are some nice extras ingredients-wise: niacinamide, allantoin, panthenol, and the interesting sphinganine, which apparentlyis a precursor of ceramide and sphingosine! This doesn't have many bells and whistles but it is definitely thoughtfully formulated. 💦The #bodywash is also similarly formulated for dry/sensitive skin. The surfactants/cleansing agents are both pretty mild and clean without stripping (sodium trideceth sulfate, sodium lauroamphoacetate), and there are a bunch of emollients to boot (shea oil, sunflower seed oil). I imagine this might feel a bit more slippery than a typical body wash but it's really very gentle. There's also niacinamide and allantoin as a bonus. 💦I also like that both products don't have any fragrance, or irritating volatile ingredients (e.g. fragrant oils and such). 💦Between the mild formulas, the lack of fragrance/irritants, and the skin-friendly ingredients, this is really geared towards people with dry or sensitive skin, or with a damaged skin barrier, or other various sensitive skin conditions (e.g. eczema). Worth checking out if that's what you're looking for! __________ #clozette #cetaphil #cetaphilsg #getprowithcetaphil #feelcetaphilproadderma #skincarereview #skincarereviews #bodylotion #sensitiveskin #skincarecommunity #skincareblogger #ingredientsmatter #skincarescience #skincareaddict #bathproducts #skincarethread #beautyreview #beautyreviews #beautybloggers #beautytips #decodethatil
#IngredientsLowdown | It took me awhile to get around to posting these, but @neutrogenasg has new #cleansers out - 5 of them! This new #cleanser formula is supposed to be more gentle on skin, with glycerin advertised as the skin-friendly ingredient. The 5 variants are brightening, acne, energizing, hydrating, and foaming cleanser. Here are some quick notes on the formulas: 💧As advertised, glycerin is indeed the first ingredient (!) in all 5 variants. Glycerin is a humectant, so it does make sense to have it in water-based products (which obviously a #facewash is). This is pretty unique - I've never seen an ingredients list hat has glycerin ahead of water, so that's pretty cool. 💧Other than glycerin, the other ingredients are water, myristic acid (the main surfactant aka cleansing agent here), and propylene glycol (another humectant), and some other functional ingredients like pH adjusters (potassium hydroxide), thickeners (hydroxypropyl starch phosphate), preservatives (phenoxyethanol) which are there in small amounts. This is the "base" formula that's present in all the 5 variants before the other ingredients (e.g. Brightening ingredients etc.) are added on, so if you liked one, you'll probably like the rest too. 💧The surfactants here are kind of a mixed bags in terms of formulating a non-drying cleanser. The main surfactant, myristic acid, can be pretty drying, but the secondary surfactants and foam boosters (lauric acid, cocamidopropyl hydroxysultaine) are much gentler. It seems that the formula is trying to strike a balance between offering a strong cleanser that's still not too harsh. 💧Overall, this isn't a "super gentle" non-foaming cleanser, it's more of a gentler take on the standard foaming cleanser (which can be quite harsh). Worth a shot if that's what you're looking for! ____________ #clozette #beauty #skincare #neutrogena #neutrogenasg #neutrogenadeepclean #facecleanser #facialcleanser #drugstoreskincare #drugstorebeauty #budgetbeauty #budgetskincare #skincarereview #skincareproducts #skincarecommunity #skincareaddiction #skincarejunkie #skincareblogger #skincarereviews #beautybloggers #beautyreviews #beautyreviews #flatlay #decodethatil
Getting in some #mask time! PS other than the #Aprilskin #modelingmask I don't actually know what the other two brands are - I think they're #kbeauty or #jbeauty brands but I'm not certain - any help anyone?

Swipe for #swatches of the new @chantecaille Luxe Eye Duo in Kenya, an #eyeshadow Duo with two super wearable shades of browned purple and muted pink. Although the purple and pink combo might not seem like the most wearable shades, both the #eyeshadows have a muted hue that makes them actually really neutral (as opposed to being oops of colour) and also very work-appropriate. I wouldn't normally wear purple or pink eyeshadow to work, but this is definitely work-safe! Pigmentation is soft but buildable, and the shimmer is subtle, as is with #chantecaille's aesthetic. _____________ #clozette #chantecaillesg #chantecaillebeauty #eyeshadowpalette #flatlay #makeupaddict #makeupaddiction #makeupjunkie #highendmakeup #luxurybeauty #luxurymakeup #highendbeauty #makeupobsessed #nofilter #swatch #makeupblogger #makeuplife #beautybloggers #beautyjunkie #beautyaddict #beautymakeup #beautyaccount #makeupcommunity #beautycommunity
When one of your favourite #cleansingoils puts out gorgeous limited edition packaging! 😍The @fanclsingapore #mildcleansingoil is easily one of my top 5 cleansing oils of all time, and now it has the prettiest 20th anniversary packaging! The usually plain white bottle is taking on a pink hue and flowers for a limited time only. Formula-wise, this is the same good ol #cleansingoil we know and love - the formula is mostly fatty acid esters that function both as emolients as well as cleansing agents/surfactants, giving that very nice "lightweight but not oily" skinfeel, and also removes makeup thoroughly and also rinses completely clean - no weird oily residue with this! Also no fragrance or potentially irritating ingredients. This is definitely making it into my stash! __________ #clozette #fancl #fanclsg #fanclsingapore #fancl代購 #oilcleanser #japaneseskincare #japanesebeauty #cosme #asianskincare #asianbeauty #abcommunity #rasianbeauty #abblogger #asianbeautyblogger #asianbeautygram #asianbeautyproducts #skincareaddiction #skincarecommunity #makeupremover #flatlay #beautybloggers #skincareproducts #skincareblogger #skincarejunkie
Dat glow tho!!! I'm always a fan of the @etudehousesingapore Face Designing Brightener - basically it's a #highlighter that has a nice amount of glow, without going over into chunky glitter territory. #etudehouse has repackaged/redesigned this #highlight multiple times over the years, and each time the new design is released I end up getting it! This is probably my favourite design so far though - I loooove that embossing! __________ #clozette #beauty #makeup #etudehousesg #etude #etudesg #LifeIsSweet #kbeauty #kmakeup #koreanbeauty #koreanmakeup #abcommunity #abblogger #rasianbeauty #asianmakeup #asianbeauty #highlighters #glowy #koreancosmetics #makeupjunkie #makeupaddict #makeupaddiction #abbeatthealgorithm #cosme #etude
More in Stories | If you love #masks like me, then you'll definitely LURVE the @lumingtang_sg Tea Foodie #Mask! If it sounds yummy, it's because it's edible - I'm told this product is actually food-grade! It consists of 3 powders (Oat, Rice, Green Tea), that you mix with water to get a #facemask. It's pretty neat if you're into DIY #skincare, and if you're tempted to eat it, don't - although you can, it's not the cheapest thing to eat at S$70. 😂 The product is coming to Singapore, although I'm told it's a bit delayed because it is also currently out of stock in China due to its popularity.

A slightly different #texturetuesday today with this @shuuemura #antioxi+ #oilincleansingwater - check those little globules of oil in the water! Basically this "oil in water" feels a lot like a #micellarwater and much less like a #cleansing oil. For those who aren't fans of cleansing oils, this #cleansingwater still packs quite the punch. ____________ #clozette #beauty #skincare #ShuUemuraSG #ShuUemura #cleanser #makeupremover #asianskincare #asianbeauty #abcommunity #japancosmetics #japaneseskincare #rasianbeauty #rasianskincare #abblogger #abbeatthealgorithm #flatlay #skincarecommunity #skincareaddict #beautybloggers #skincarelover #skincareblog
MiaCarvajalLlamas: Haven't tried this! I'm curious now.
#IngredientsLowdown | For those who want simple #hydration through the night, the @belif_singapore #aquabomb #sleepingmask might just be of interest! Check out what it has to offer: 💦The key ingredients are water and humectants (Polyglycerin-3, glycerin), and that's pretty much it. The product, obviously, is all about lightweight hydration, and if you prefer an emollient formula, it might be best to layer this under another product. 💦As far as sleeping #masks go, the lightweight formula ticks all the boxes: sinks into skin fast, feels refreshing on skin, doesn't feel sticky, leaves minimal residue on pillows and sheets. If such concerns bugged you from using skincare products at night, this might work for you. 💦In smaller amounts are a variety of plant extracts (feverfew, oat kernel, chickweed, raspberry leaf, malt, wheat sprout, aloe, nettle leaf, turmeric root and many many more), and if you like such ingredients, you'll probably like this as well! ___________ #clozette #belifSingapore #belifsg #belif #kbeauty #kskincare #koreanbeauty #koreanskincare #asianskincare #abcommunity #abblogger #abskincare #rasianbeauty #asianbeauty #abbeatthealgorithm #skincareroutine #skincare #beauty #ingredientspotlight
I am officially shooketh by the new @pixibeauty #Matte Last #LiquidLip shades! The 5 new shades (first 5 from bottom) are pretty cool - unlike the existing shades which are MLBB type shades, the new shades offer a bolder pop of colour, from red to merlot to orange and bright pink! I am definitely appreciating the wider shade range here! _____________ #pixibeautysg #clozette #beauty #makeup #pixibeauty #pixibypetra #pixipretties #cosmetics #cosme #flatlay #makeupjunkie #makeupjunkies #makeupcommunity #liquidlipstick #liquidlipsticks #liquidlips #matteliquidlipstick #mattelips #makeuptime #beautycommunity #beautyproducts #beautyjunkie #makeupaddiction #beautybloggers
#IngredientsLowdown | The @aprilskin_sg #calendula #skincare range has dropped, and there are 3 products - the #peeloffmask, the #essence, and the #peelingpad (basically an exfoliator)! Both the essence and the peel off #mask have bits of actual calendula #flower in them, so that's really cool too! Based on the ingredients, a first glance tells me that this is a range geared towards #hydration of the skin, and is formulated to be pretty lightweight. I'll give a more in-depth review soon, but in the meantime here are some thoughts: 🌼The peeling pad is very, very mild. The main #exfoliating ingredient is capryloyl salicylic acid, which seems to be there in pretty small amounts. So this is the kind of peel you can use everyday. 🌼The peel off mask... is not my favourite product, haha. I'm generally not a fan of peel-off #masks as a rule, not just #aprilskin, because the general formula of such masks is that they have looots of alcohol. 🌼The essence is nice - it moisturizes well and has a cooling feel on skin, and is a nice if basic formulation. It's mostly humectants as the key ingredients, so layer this with a thicker cream if you have very dry skin. ________________ #clozette #aprilskinsg #kbeauty #kskincare #koreanbeauty #koreanskincare #asianbeauty #asianskincare #asianskin #abcommunity #abblogger #abbeatthealgorithm #abskincare #flatlay #kbeautyaddict #kbeautyblogger #kbeautyblog
