As the weather is approaching its colder and drier stage, my skin has also been demanding a lot more care to keep it fresh and hydrated. As a skin product junkie, I constantly try to experiment with new products out there to find the best solution for my skin problems. These are a few of my Oct favorite/ not so favorite. All opinions are honest from my own experience.
Too Cool For School-Egg Cream Mask
Retail at $6/piece (single use), this mask offers a super hydrating and relaxing sensation during application (10-20 mins) and post usage. It contains a rich milky serum that was generously infused with egg white + yolk extract and camellia seed oil, which guarantees to leave your skin glowing and refreshed after one use.
The price isn’t cheap for one single use, however, I would definitely recommend it as an indulging product. Make sure to massage the remaining serum deep into your skin after taking the mask off and let it dry to get the most out of the product :)!
This product has definitely became an addition to my daily routine now. It does not only exfoliate (gently) and brighten the skin, it also gives a nice after-glow instead of drying out the skin like most exfoliating cleanser. The scent is beautiful and I’m totally hooked. Some people may not like it though as it may be too strong/artificial for very sensitive noses. I recommended this to a couple friends and they all love it! Hopefully you will as well <3.
Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Night Oil
At $105/oz, I really hoped/prayed that this product will live up to its hype. It simply did not in my case. During the initial application, it did not cause any burn/irritation. However, to my surprise, the next day I woke up with a tumorous break out on my forehead where I mainly applied it on. Before buying it, I have done research on Retinoid oil and know that it could cause initial reaction aka bringing out the impurities under your skin before clearing it out. Therefore, I sucked it up and continued using for another week. Holy cow! It destroyed my skin so badly that I’m still suffering from the after math. I really wished it worked for me, since I was a total sucker for the beautiful packaging and blue color :(!
Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara
Say hello to your about-to-be one and only make up tool on lazy days. This mascara is AHHHMAZING and it literally triples your length and thickness. It also helps holding lashes curl very well and ABSOLUTELY NO CLUMPING ladies. My only complain is the brush is too big for the bottom lashes.
Tip: the first few uses, there will be a lot of products coming out of the tube so be careful with your application, perhaps removing some of the excess product off with a Qtip before applying. XOXO
