Don't you just love cute LE packaging? @belif_singapore now has a cute illustrated - and upsized! - version of its #truecreamaquabomb #moisturizer, complete with a cute #tumbler! For those who aren't familiar with #belif, this is a #kbeauty brand particularly known for its #aquabomb creams and moisturizers, which help to hydrate skin but feel super light and non-sticky! It's a good basic hydrating moisturizer if you want one! And if you're a regular, this is definitely a good time to stock up!

Guess which brand just launched both a new product and a flagship store at Orchard? @skinceuticals_sg that's who! I'm pretty excited about the new #skinceuticals Glycolic 10 Overnight Renew - it claims to contain an actual free acid value of 10% of #glycolicacid and that's pretty exciting! It means that the acid available for your skin to use is actually ok the concentration of 10% (the raw formula itself has something like 14% of Glycolic acid). This is definitely a product that I'm going to add to my routine - I love my retinols and acids and vitamin c serums and sunscreens, and an actual legit 10% Glycolic acid serum should really give some hopefully pretty visible improvement! I'll be doing a more thorough ingredients look at this, but in the meantime, if you want to check out their products in person, they're now available at @tangssg at Orchard!

Sooo excited that @milanicosmetics_singapore is FINALLY coming to Singapore at @watsonssg stores! I've been an OG @milanicosmetics fan since I was a student in the US (their eyeshadow and #blush were my jam even back then), but the brand has only just gotten better after all this time - these gorgeous rose #blushes are exactly the sort of thing you'd find in a pricier brand, but most of the items (with the notable exception of the the eyeshadow palettes) are actually going to be under $20! That's a pretty good deal, and I can't wait for the brand to officially launch here! This is their first expansion into Asia, so for the rest of my Asian friends you know what to pick up when traveling here! More in Stories!

#IngredientsLowdown on this @altheakorea serum #cleanser!
.
Actually this photo shows not just the #althea serum cleanser, but also the body sparking mist. I don't have too much to say ingredients-wise about the mist, because it's essentially a fragrance product and thus all about the smell, but I do have some thoughts about the cleanser!
.
💧The serum cleanser is formulated to be pretty gentle. The main surfactant, PEG-7 glyceryl cocoate, is mild and fairly moisturizing with emollient properties, so it's unlikely to dry you out.
💧There's also a couple of ingredients that add to the moisturizing properties, like isononyl isononanoate, another emollient. Cyclomethicone - I'm honestly not sure what it's doing here (maybe a textural addition) but it won't dry out the skin. Dipropylene glycol is a solvent with humectant properties. So, based on the key ingredients, this looks like a pretty gentle cleanser.
💧For those who like that sort of thing, some plant ingredients are found in small amounts - tea tree lead extract, jojoba seed oil, and mint leaf extract.
💧I quite think this cleanser is pretty good value for money, and pretty gentle on skin. Worth a shot if that's what you're looking for!

If you're looking for a gentle cleanser this @solvedskincare coconut water #cleansing foam! I couldn't find the ingredients list on the product I got (it came without the box), so I found the list on the brand's IG, lol! Check out some of the ingredient highlights:
💧The product has 75% coconut water, which lends a bit of novelty to the product.
💧The surfactants are pretty gentle as well - the two present are potassium cocoon glycinate, as well as coco-betaine. So we know this is going to be a pretty mild cleanser!
💧 Other ingredients include various humectants, preservatives and various other functional ingredients. The interesting ingredients are dipotassium glycyrrhizate (has some anti-inflammatory properties, and you can find it sometimes in sensitive skin products), and arginine (has antioxidant properties, you'll find it in anti-aging products typically). Both are good additions to the formula.
💧But that's not all! It has a pH of 5.5 (according to the brand's website) which is similar to the pH of your skin - again this is good, and indicative that it will not excessively disrupt the skin's own acid mantle
💧All in all this looks like a pretty good #cleanser, and might be pretty good for sensitive skin!

There's a new #skincare range from @yvesrochersg coming soon on 22 April in stores and on @lazada_sg! The Anti-Age Global range is (obviously) #antiaging, but from my preliminary look at the ingredients list, it's really also pretty useful for all skin types! For those who like their skincare products with botanical ingredients, this is also a good one to check out! I'll be posting a fuller review soon, but in the meantime, these will launch on 22 April with a 25% discount! Don't say bojio!

When your #oilcleanser collection legit looks like candy! The @shuuemura #cleansingoil has come a long way since the original formula - now the range has expanded to include so many different variants and formulas, and I am really loving the newer ones. They rinse off cleanly, really remove even heavy makeup, and don't feel oily or heavy. Now available at @sephorasg Westgate ave Vivocity!

Swipe for #swatches of the @chantecaille Polar Ice #eyeshadow #palette from the brand's Spring 2019 #makeup collection - aren't these shades so pretty? Although #Chantecaille is known mostly for its neutral aesthetic, the 9 #eyeshadows add a little bit of a punch to any eye look with their pastel, glittery finish. The sales of this palette also benefit the Attenborough Foundation to combat global warming too, so that's a plus!

So @fanclsingapore always has really good quality #skincare products, but now with their limited edition #cleansingoil packaging, the aesthetics are totally to die for as well! This is part of the #Fancl x Mika Nikagawa collab, and I am so IN LOVE with the pretty spring #florals theme. Now the #washingpowder also has pretty packaging too! You use this with the Fancl foaming ball or washing puff (basically wet the ball, put a bit of powder on the ball, roll it around your palms until absorbed, then squeeze the ball until it generates foam - a LOT of foam from a bit of powder!). I've always been a fan of their #mildcleansingoil (a bottle can always be found in my #cleansingoils stash). But if using an #oilcleanser isn't your thing, the washing powder might just be - it's also quite gentle on skin as well, and for those who don't like tugging at their skin, this one is good because you generate the foam first and then apply it to your skin, so no rubbing your skin trying to get the cleanser to foam up!

Getting my #kbeauty on this weekend with a brand that's new to me - @soleaf_official is a #skincare brand (now available at @sasasingapore ) with an emphasis on natural products and plant ingredients. Obviously with #koreanbeauty brands I'm totally gravitating to the #sheetmasks (at a first glance I am pleased to see that none of the ones I have contain alcohol), but the body wash and body lotion are pretty nice too!

I'm pretty excited for the new @thebodyshopsg #skincare products! There are two new products - a Nicaraguan Coffee Intense Awakening #Mask, which also happens to double as a #scrub and SMELLS SOOO GOOD (seriously it smells just like coffee and I lowkey want to eat it everytime I smell it lol). There's also a Purifying Clay Wash - basically a #cleanser with clay in it, and it's actually one of the few clay cleansers that's not harsh on skin! Will be looking at these in more detail soon!

INGREDIENTS LOWDOWN
.
Today's #IngredientsLowdown is the new @larocheposaysg Toleraine Ultra 8! This is a #facemist geared towards #sensitiveskin, and it basically only has 9 ingredients, making for a short and sweet #ingredients list!
.
💦As you can imagine with a face mist, the bulk of the ingredients are water and various humectants which bind water to the skin (glycerin, propylene glycol, propanediol). This helps to hydrate the skin!
.
There's also allantoin and carnosine, which are both soothing ingredients great for sensitive skin. I think the inclusion of these are great, and am personally happy to see them inside.
.
💦The rest of the ingredients are functional ingredients like thickeners (sodium chloride), surfactants (coco-betaine), and buffering agents (citric acid), which do things like ensure the product doesn't separate or go

Today we're looking at the #ingredients of mine other than the humble yet ubiquitous #Aquaphor! It's basically a balm / salve type product - long before hipster brands started putting out their versions too!
.
As you might expect with a balm, there are a variety of oils and waxes that make up the bulk of the product - mineral oil, microcrystalline wax, and ceresin are the 3 key oils and waxed here. There's also lanolin alcohol, which is NOT the same as the denatured alcohol you find in skincare. Lanolin alcohol is an emollient and also has a waxy texture that adds to the balm. As you might imagine this makes the product very occlusive (meaning it forms a barrier layer on top of skin), which is why it is especially useful for dry / chapped skin.
.
After all the key ingredients, there is panthenol (also known as vitamin B5) and glycerin, which are both commonly used as humectants in the product, so they're also useful. Then there's bisabolo, which is an antioxidant, and could be used to prevent the product from going bad, or just for extra skincare benefit.
.
All in all, I don't think I need to tell you much about this product because you guys are probably all familiar with it already, but yup it's basically a nice occlusive balm with some emollient properties. Good for cold weather and dry / chapped / broken skin, although as you might imagine it can feel oily and waxy.

If you're into #asianskincare, especially Japanese #skincare brands, you might want to check out @sofina_sg - their #skincareproducts have lightweight textures while still being moisturizing. The star product is the #sofinaip #essence (blue bottle), which is a really cool foam essence meant to be used after cleansing but before other skincare. New to Singapore are the other #SOFINA accompanying products - a #lotion and #moisturizer, to complete  the routine! The products are also super lightweight feel pretty nice on skin, I'll be taking a look at the ingredients next!

So I might be a little late with this, but swipe for #swatches of the @shuuemura #unlimitedfoundation, which was launched in March! This has 24(!) shades geared for Asian skintones, and I've swatched almost all of them!
.
If you're wondering how to make sense of the #shuuemurasg numbering system, here are some tips:
.
1. First look at the SECOND number in the shade name - that is how dark / light the shade is, and higher number is a lighter shade (so shade 574 is lighter than shade 564, for example).
.
2. Next, look at the FIRST number in the shade name - that is how pink or yellow the shade is. Smaller numbers are pinker than larger numbers, and generally 3 - pink, 5 - neutral, 7 - yellow. So shade 374 will have pink undertones, 574 will have neutral, and 774 will be a yellow shade.
.
3. Lastly, look at the LAST number in the shade name. This will tell you how bright or muted a shade is, and the larger the number the brighter the shade. So 574 would be less muted than 572, for example.
.
Lastly, I gotta say the texture is awesome too. It is a semi-matte texture that's not too oily/shiny and not too flat. Coverage is good too, as #shuuemura tends to do!

On Wednesdays we wear... #sunscreen! And everyday actually, because sunscreen is a MUST! I always get people asking me for recommendations for good anti-aging #skincare and creams and whatnot, and I always say the first step is really sunscreen! Anyway the @anessasg Perfect UV Sunscreen Mild Milk is specially formulated for sensitive skin, and to be water-resistant, and it has SPF50+ /PA++++ with a really nice lightweight texture too (swipe to see a photo of the texture). A pretty nice product I think!

Can I just say how impressed I am that @fanclsingapore keeps coming out with thes gorgeous limited edition #cleansingoil packaging? This is another one in the #Fancl x Mika Nikagawa collab, and, as with previous designs, has pretty flowers on the bottle. Also joining the spring #florals theme is the #washingpowder, which is supposed to be used with the Fancl foaming ball or washing puff (you can try using it by itself, but I wouldn't recommend it as you end up wasting more product - the ball and puff is super efficient at generating a lot of lather with a bit of powder). As I've said many times before, I have great love for their #mildcleansingoil and a bottle can always be found in my stash of #cleansingoils. But if using an  #oilcleanser isn't your thing, the washing powder might just be - it's also quite gentle on skin (as most of the brands products are). I can also see this coming in most handy if you're traveling and tying to pack light/ minimize the amount of liquids being carried.

#IngredientsLowdown . . . | . . . @shuuemura is famous for their #cleansingoils, and here's a new one to add to the stash! The Blanc:chroma brightening and polishing #cleansingoil claims to leave skin looking brighter - definitely a first I've seen in a cleansing oil!
🦄The cleansing oil formula will be quite familiar to people who've tried a variety of #shuuemura oils - at its core it's a variety of emollients and oils (ethylhexyl palmitate, wheat germ oil, caprylic/capric/succinic triglyceride, isopropyl myristate) as well as surfactants (PEG-20 glyceryl triisostearate) dissolve and clean the skin and remove makeup and gunk. This makes up the bulk of the product, which is not surprising since that's what a cleansing oil is supposed to do. 🦄Interestingly, the cleansing oil also has charcoal powder inside, which is supposed to help brighten and polish the skin, although it's probably in small amounts as it's actually not visible in the bottle (in that you don't see specks of charcoal powder floating around). Other extra ingredients include black tea ferment and a couple of plant extracts like bilberry.
🦄Overall, I'd say it's formulated to be an effective but gentle cleanser with a lightweight feel. In part this is due to a smart choice of surfactants - PEG-20 glyceryl triisostearate is an effective but mild surfactant that can really remove heavy makeup - and also due to a smart choice of emollients and oils - ethylhexyl palmitate, caprylic/capric/succinic triglyceride, isopropyl myristate, all have pretty non-greasy skinfeels, and some of them are sometimes used in place of heavier oils or silicones. So, I'm pretty glad to have this one in my stash!

#Swatches of the @chantecaille Spring 2019 #makeup collection are here! I've swatched the Polar Ice #eyeshadow #palette, which have 9 #eyeshadows that are glittery but not too OTT, although they're all pastels so that may or may not be your cup of tea. I've also swatched the 3 Lip Cristal #lipsticks. The #lipstick shades also benefit charity (a feature of most #chantecaille collections). This time, the beneficiary is the Attenborough Foundation, and proceeds will go towards planting trees in Kenya to combat global warming.
