[Beauty Review] Biore UV Bright Face Milk [PINK] Sunblock SPF50PA++

I must admit that I was one of those lazy ones who couldn’t care less about applying sunblock and its importance. I have had freckles on my face for the longest time ever known, like since young? It could be because I used to be quite sporty back in my teens (yeah I know, it was that long!) and I was frequently under the sun. I used to be quite tanned to be honest.

By now, I hope you girls know the importance of applying sunblock before heading outdoors, if not you should really google all about it!

Anyhoo, I guess the freckles stuck by me for the longest time (sounds so wrong?) and till date, I still have them. Speaking of which, I hope I’ll be able to laser them off soon or something but honestly speaking, lasering my face is so much scarier than lasering off my birthmarks on my body?

It was only until recently I decided to be more diligent and apply sunblock lotion before applying my foundation. I’m using Chanel compact foundation powder by the way that includes an SPF of 20. I was using Sunplay SKIN Aqua UV Moisture Milk SPF50 PA+++ and DrX’s Non-tinted Sunscreen SPF 30+ (5A) 60ml.

Recently, I ordered this Biore sunblock from Qoo10 and I’ve been loving it ever since! Never regretted.

With the constant lack of sleep, my skin loses its radiance easily and the lack of luster inevitably results in dull skin. That was the reason why I choose ‘bright skin’ instead of the rest.

Now, on to my face.

These pictures are totally unedited, except to sharpen its resolution (because my iphone camera sucks).

Sigh, just take a look at all my ugly freckles and huge pores… 😥

Now, for the pros and cons.

Pros :

  • It does brighten up your skin instantly after application
  • It has quick-absorbent properties
  • Non-sticky

Cons :

  • Dries up pretty fast so you will have to apply quickly all over your face 
  • The price difference between retail and the Qoo10 shop which I got this sunblock from is like what, a few bucks? I only realised it when I happen to chance upon it at SaSa which is selling at $15+. Not sure about other retail shops though.
  • Too small a bottle, wish it came in bigger size like its blue version (Sunplay SKIN Aqua UV Moisture Milk SPF50 PA+++)

Beauty Review : Home-based Facial Salon at Lovely Face Spa (Tampines)

To be honest, I don’t go for facials. The only time I’ve went for one was kindly sponsored by Navara Beauty. I don’t even mask at home anymore, heck!

Recently, one of my gf introduced me to Lovely Face Spa at Tampines which she mentioned was highly raved by many girls online.

My concerns for my face are :-

1. Oily T-zone (I have combi skin)

2. Clogged pores, especially on my nose, black and white heads. Very annoying.

3. My incurable and hopeless dark circles

4. Freckles, which I have had since I was a kid?

5. Visible large pores on my nose and cheek areas

Complimented by many, my skin condition is actually very good since I don’t do much maintenance. Even the lady boss, Tiffany, of LFS said so 🙂 So yes, I am indeed very blessed but of course, I don’t have flawless perfect fair and porcelain-like skin.

I opted for the ‘Essential Glow Facial’ as well as the ‘Eye Treatment’. I was told that if I were to do Acid peels, eye treatment would be impossible.

Acid peel would help to target my freckles and uneven skin tone mainly.

I was more concerned with the stupid clogged pores and dark circles, hence the choice.

Extracted from LFS’s website :

Essential Glow Facial (120 mins) @ $68

A deep-cleansing, moisturizing and tension-relieving facial that hydrates skin, leaving it youthful and supple.

A Pampering and Relaxing Facial which includes
– Double Cleansing, Skin Analysis, Pre-Treatment Lotion and Steaming

– Exfoliation

– Extraction and High Frequency Machine (anti-bacterial),

– Cold Hammer with Ampoule from France, customised to your skin type

– Eye-brow trimming

– Lifting/Firming Eye Massage to combat puffiness and dark circles
– Moisturising and Lifting Eye Mask

Plus
– Lymphatic Suction Machine to improve lymphatic drainage, eliminate toxins and increase cell metabolism.

This helps to reduce skin imperfection as this machine helps in better facilitation of waste products (sweat and toxin) removal via lymphatic drainage system.
– Customised Soft Mask prescribed by certified Aesthetician for your skin conditions

– Signature Face Lifting Massage to firm up and tone your skin, improve skin’s elasticity, and improves skin texture while maintaining moisture content in skin cells

– Enjoy a relaxing Head plus Shoulder Massage to soothe your tired nerves

– Lastly, a Hot Towel to melt away your tension

Radio Frequency Eye Treatment (30 mins) – $38

-Combats puffiness & dark eye rings
-Hydrates the eye area
– Improves circulation around the eye area

*Able to combine with facial except acid treatment

If you choose to do both the Essential Glow Facial with Eye treatment, the latter would cost $28 instead of $38.

I paid a total of $96.

Here is how the mini salon looks like.

I must say the ambience is quite okay. Bright orange colours for the cheery burst of energy mood.

And another.

The area behind the bed.

So you can see, the area is not that big but still ample. It’s the size of a normal HDB room.

Tiffany previously worked at beauty salons so she has had ample experience. Her skills and techniques are quite okay.

Her customer service is good too.

I received a follow-up sms from her few days later after the facial.

The problem with me going to facial is that, I have a hard time judging if it’s effective on my skin. Because mainly, I don’t have much problems with it compared to someone who has acne problems which did/didn’t reduce after going for facial.

The extraction was not as painful as I’d thought it would be and what my friend mentioned. Guess it’s also because I didn’t have much to extract but there were some painful ones at the sides of the nose and near my brows.

Pores seemed clean after extraction but I could still see some clogged ones.

Visible large pores remain…visible and large.

What I like about her facial package is that she helps you to trim your brows, which I suck at. Because I shave rather than pluck, there were many ingrowns which sometimes cause inflammations and acne. Tiffany had painstakingly tried to pluck out all the ingrowns which I’m quite satisfied about 🙂

There were moments which made me felt uncomfortable, for example when the electrolysis-like machine was used. You would feel that your skin is getting electrocuted. I can’t remember what is that machine called and for though, because there were so many stuffs used…

The package also includes head and shoulder massages which I need so badly….And the massage session lasted longer than I’d expected. That goes to show that Tiffany doesn’t cut ‘costs’ which I like very much. 🙂

My dark circles still remained nevertheless and I fully understand that the solution to skin problems is not a miraculously one-off incident. You will need to constantly maintain and review.

But I also know that clogged pores and dark circles will always recur. Clogged pores arise due to dirt, impurities and of course our humid climate in Singapore while dark circles, well, lack of rest, straining of eyes and using of gadgets…

I feel that these problems will never efface 😦

So is this facial worth it for me?

I would say I don’t think I will be going back, since I don’t have much of a problem (which can be solved) for my skin.

I wouldn’t say that Tiffany’s skills and equipment aren’t good but just that, I wouldn’t want to spend so much on facials in general.

She is still very highly raved by many others though 🙂

Beauty Review : Royale Beauty Kojic Papaya Soap

I have heard of  Royale Beauty Kojic Papaya Soap some time back but didn’t really get down on my foot to try it. Achieving fair porcelain skin is one of every girl’s dream and this soap is said to help diminish dark areas, eliminate melasma and freckles, remove pimples and lighten the skin. The soap is also proven to rejuvenate and nourish the skin by holding back the formation of melanin.

Kojic Papaya Soap contains a complete mixture of active and powerful ingredients making it a very effective soap in moisturizing, whitening and lightening the skin. Unlike other soaps, Kojic Papaya is safe and does not contain any side effects that can worsen skin problems. In fact, it can treat the following skin issues:

  • Sun spots
  • Acne or pimples
  • Body acne
  • Freckles
  • Skin blisters
  • Psoriasis
  • Eczema
  • Rashes
  • Hyper pigmentation
  • Scars
  • Keratosis Pilaris

I have been wanting to achieve a fairer skin tone (who doesn’t?) for quite a while now and because of the lack of sun block application, I became a shade darker whenever I run for events. A major epic moment for a beauty blogger I know, so I bear that in mind whenever I go for runs now.

photo 1 (4) photo 2 (4)

 

I got mine from this seller on Qoo10 at $10 including normal postage fees.

Delivery maybe took about a week? Was expecting a shorter delivery time after reading the reviews but nope, that wasn’t the case.

But I guess 1 week is still acceptable.

I’m a little wary about the effects of this soap because I have read reviews stating that it causes a tingling sensation and would cause mild peeling of the skin because one of the main function is for exfoliating purposes.

I don’t have sensitive skin but I did a patch testing on my right backhand first before applying my whole body. No weird feeling so I proceeded to lather it on my whole body.

I skipped my face for the first attempt though, fearing it would cause massive destruction to my face. You know how important face is to girls. 😉

I tried on my face on the second time round and so far, no sensitivity/allergy.

It was very well-packed. Seller also included a brochure but didn’t manage to snap a pic.

photo 3 (5)

photo 4 (4)

photo 5 (2)

To show case how thick the bar of soap is.

Now, for my review after using it twice.

Of course, nothing is ever magical and even if the claimed effects are immediately prominent, it might only be a temporary thing.

I understand that many girls who have tried this soap, mentioned that a month would be a good gauge as our skin takes about 28 days to renew itself?

Anyway, here are the pros and cons:-

Pros

  1. No allergy but be careful not to let it come into contact to your vjj. I experienced a little tingling and itchy sensation down there, most probably because this soap is acidic and our vjjs are alkaline? Whatever it is, try avoiding getting the soap to be in contact with sensitive areas such as your eyes as well. Read reviews that they sting your eyes….so be careful!
  2. Skin felt a little smoother perhaps due to its exfoliating effects
  3. No peeling effect – is the product not working well? Other girls mentioned that peeling effects would mean that the soap is working effectively.

Cons

  1. Skin feels tight and dry, especially on the face after using the soap. This is normal though, just be sure to apply moisturiser after that. 
  2. Tingling feel at sensitive areas as mentioned above.
  3. I’m not a soap bar person because I hate lathering it on my body. I prefer the contemporary body wash style.
  4. Some girls complained about the smell and that it smells like puked payaya. It does smell like payaya, but I guess the ‘puke’ part is somehow still acceptable for me. Not that pungent.

As mentioned, I will continue to use it to analyse its effects. Hopefully it can help to bring my skin tone a shade or two lighter and also lighten my scars and freckles. Will snap pictures of before and after to provide a more comprehensive and detailed review! 🙂

It can be used as a reinforcement supplement to your existing skincare or as your main skincare regime. My Daily Dose contains highly concentrated ingredients so you only need to apply 3-5 drops per application, twice a day.

3. Vichy Normaderm Deep Cleansing Gel : Deep Cleansing Gel for clear skin with Salicylic Acid + Totarol + Eperuline. Purifies without drying and gently eliminates impurities. Immediately soothes skin. Suitable for combination and oily skin type.

4. Vichy Normaderm Hyaluspot : The formula, enriched with hyaluronic acid, creates an invisble and protective film on the surface of the skin to protect the imperfection. Also contains antibacterial technology [salicylic acid + LHA]* to help fight the appearance of spots. Spots and marks appear reduced, and the skin is protected from further blemishes appearing.

5. Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel : Restores up to 200% higher moisture level* on skin, replenishing and rebuilding skin moisture from within all day long. “Self-Hydrating System” to address the root cause of inner dryness. Innovative formula with smart Progressive Release System absorbs moisture from the air then releasing it into the skin over time. Instantly hydrates skin and helps soothe and calm skin. Skin stays soft, supple, bouncy, radiant with a healthy glow. Oil free formula with non-sticky/matte feel. Dermatologist tested, Allergy-tested. Non-comedogenic.

6. Avance DOU DEMAQUILLANT SUPER : An instant remover design for resistant and waterproof eye make-up!
Gentle to the eye while removing the waterproof eye makeup. A formula that remove and at the same time gently moisture delicate eye area as it contain soothing and moisturizing ingredient, Chamomile flower extract and Trehalose. How to use: Shake it well to mix the two-layer liquid. Take appropriate amount onto facial cotton, place on eyelid area, wait for a short 5 second; then wipe gently across the eyelid area, follow by over the eyebrow.

7. Herborist Whitening Revitalizing Mask : Specially formulated with extracts from several Chinese herbs, including Atractyloides Macrocephala,Poria Cocos,Paeonia Lactiflora and Bletilla Striata, it features mild and nourishing ingredients, which can penetrate into the skin to boost elasticity and vitality of the skin.

Collagen helps in slowing down the natural process of skin aging. It has great moisturizing benefits and excellent hydration properties. When applied topically, like in the form of a mask, the skin absorbs the substance & increase its own natural production of the protein. It can even out fine lines and wrinkles on the face. Perfect treatment for chronic dry skin.

Sheep Placenta works under the same fundamental theory of cell therapy, a process of introducing new cells into a tissue in order to rebuild and revitalize ailing or aging tissues, stimulating the cells of specific organ systems and optimizes/restores their functions. Henceforth, sheep placenta helps to prevent the formation of “age spots”, reduce appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and pigmentation. It is a nutritional supplement branded by many as the “Rolls Royce of all Nutritional Supplements”.

Witch Hazel is a mightily useful little medicinal marvel. Its uses and properties are unique and vast. Due to the anti-inflammatory and anti-itch properties that witch hazel has, it can reduce inflammation on a pimple and itching on the skin. Furthermore, it soothes and prevents a razor burn or sunburn. Daily use significantly tightens up the skin and helps with acne. Moreover, it can reduce eye bags, treat dry skin and encourage quicker healing of minor skin breaks. Not to mention, it is good for refreshing tired eyes and bring a natural scent to the skin.

9. Jane Iredale Difference Glow Time Full Coverage Mineral BB Cream : Glow Time covers blemishes, minimizes pores, disguises wrinkles and smoothes and brightens skin.

10. Jane Iredale Just Kissed® Lip and Cheek Stain Forever Pink : 

A lip and cheek stain that provides long-lasting, custom color to lips and cheeks.

  • Olive butter, avocado butter and wild rose wax soothe and soften lips. Rose flower wax and beeswax nourish and moisturize.
