#IngredientsLowdown | A cult classic dressed up for #holiday2018! The very popular @belif_singapore true cream - #moisturizing bomb now has 3 different LE designs inspired by 3 different cities! The one I have is Shanghai-inspired and super cute! If you like the #belif #moisturizer then this is a nice time to get something in a cuter packaging. Also very giftable for someone who is into #skincare! The ingredients in this consist primarily of a light moisturizer base with humectants (glycerin, dipropylene glycol) and some silicones (cyclohexasiloxane, which spreads the product out on skin before evaporating) and emollients (hydrogenated polydecene). That forms the base of the product, to which are added a slew of plant oils and extracts (including macadamia seed oil, and extracts from oat kernel, calendula flower, raspberry leaf, chickweed, clover flower, mistletoe, willow bark, soybean ferment, and a whole lot more), for those who like this sort of thing. Personally, I see it as a nice basic moisturizer with a lightweight feel, and some nice ingredients added (I also noticed panthenol in the ingredients list). This gets a lot of rave reviews, so it's definitely worth a shot if you're looking for something along this line! ___________ #clozette #belifskincare #belifsg #belifsingapore #beauty #kbeauty #kskincare #koreanbeauty #koreanskincare #kbeautyaddict #kbeautyblogger #abblogger #abcommunity #asianskincare #asianbeauty #rasianbeauty #abskincare #naturalskincare #skincarejunkie #skincarecommunity #skincareaddict #kbeautyblog #kbeautylover #kbeautyreview
And the winner of the most beautiful limited edition #cleansingoil for #holiday2018 is.... @fanclsingapore x Mika Nikagawa #mildcleansingoil! #Fancl has one of my favourite #fancl #cleansingoils formula-wise, with a formula that cleans super well, removes makeup thoroughly, and rinses completely clean, without having any weird oily residue or feel! I also appreciate that this has no fragrance or potentially irritating ingredients, so it's always great for sensitive skin too. If you're a regular user, this is definitely worth getting for the pretty packaging! __________ #clozette #beauty #skincare #fanclsg #fanclsingapore #fancl代購 #oilcleanser #japaneseskincare #japanesebeauty #cosme #asianskincare #asianbeauty #abcommunity #rasianbeauty #abblogger #asianbeautyblogger #skincareaddiction #skincarecommunity #makeupremover #flatlay #beautybloggers #skincareproducts #skincareblogger #skincarejunkie
So this is a bit messy, but I am loving these @thebodyshopsg #bathandbody and #bodycare products! There's the Olivia the owl #giftset (contains #showergel, #bathbomb, #handcream minis in strawberry and coconut scents). The dear ears headband is really nice for cute masking selfies (for the person who selfies all the time)! The house box has #bodybutter, shower gel and a bath net, which is good for the person who loves their long baths! I do like #thebodyshop bath products, so all these are pretty awesome! __________ #clozette #beauty #thebodyshopsg #tbssg #naturalproducts #flatlay #naturalbeauty #holiday2018 #enchantedbynature #christmas2018 #giftsets #beautyblogger #beautyjunkie #beautyaddict #beautyblog #beautyaccount #beautymess #beautyflatlay #beautybloggers #beautylover #beautycommunity
#IngredientsLowdown | On Wednesdays we wear pink! Really going all out with this @sigiskin Pink Nectar #eyecream over here! So what's in this that is of note? 💗At its core, the product is formulated to be lightly moisturizing, with humectants (glycerin), and emollients (octyldodecanol, Cetyl alcohol). So this won't feel overly heavy or sticky or oily! 💗 Niacinamide is present, which is always nice to have in #skincare, and there are a lot of other interesting ingredients (especially plant based extracts for those who like that), like coconut oil, propolis extract, peach fruit extract, Vitamin E, sodium hyaluronate (the salt of hyaluronic acid), all of which are a nice bonus. 💗Interestingly although it's not visible to the naked eye (at least not when I tried it), there's a little bit of shimmer in this product! Boron nitride is present and its shimmery properties helps to improve the appearance of the eye area. If you're interested, this is $68 on the #sigiskin website. ___________ #clozette #beauty #yourskinshappyplace #pinkpanther #pinkwednesday #pink #skincarejunkie #skincareaddict #skincareblogger #ingredients #ingredientsmatter #sgbeauty #sgskincare #skincareproducts #skincarenatural #skincarecommunity #greenbeauty #greenbeautyproducts #greenbeautyrevolution #naturalskincare #naturalskincareproducts #greenskincare
Counting down to Christmas with another some really nice looking products from @porcelainfacespa - the glycolic #toner, with #glycolicacid is obviously a fave of mine, but the other two products - a #cleanser and a gel - are nice too! And the sebum control #serum is also very hydrating for a blemish product, and doesn't make you dry out at all! The #tea - I don't know if this is sold, but it is surprisingly nice! (And you can see it in my stories!) __________ #clozette #beauty #skincare #porcelainfacespa #porcelainsg #skincareroutine #skincarejunkie #skincarelover #skincarecommunity #skincareaddict #rasianbeauty #abcommunity #abblogger #skinproducts #skincareblogger #skincareluxury #beautyjunkie #beautyaddict #beautyblogs #beautyaccount #flatlay #beautyflatlay #holiday2018
Now here's a #makeupmess indeed! These @pixibeauty Matte Last #LiquidLipsticks really have amazing staying power, and they dry down pretty fast too! Mixed up a little shade of my own just for fun - it's that deep plummy/mauve tub right in front! It's a deepened plum mauve with a purple lean, and I thought a deep cool-toned shade would be a great addition to the shade range! Swipe for a #swatch or my creation! (PS the swatches took forever to come off hahahaha). _________ #clozette #pixibeauty #pixibyme #pixicosmetics #piximakeup #pixisingapore #pixipretties #beauty #makeup #cosme #cosmetics #budgetbeauty #drugstorebeauty #liquidlipstick #matteliquidlipstick #nofilter #flatlay #beautyjunkie #makeupjunkie #makeupaddiction #makeupaddict #beautyaddict #makeupblogger #beautyblogger #beautybloggers
#IngredientsLowdown | Isn't the packaging for the Asia exclusive @lorealskin #ageperfect Peony Lumiere range so pretty? Honestly the Asia-exclusive #lorealparis launches (especially the ones that hit the Chinese market) seem to have surprisingly luxe packaging! Anyway, this is sold as an illuminating (always a popular claim in this part of the world!) nourishing range, and here are some quick thoughts on the formula: 🌸 The range is formulated to be pretty emollient - both the night cream and day cream have a variety of occlusive / emollient ingredients (mineral oil, apricot kernel oil, shea butter, dimethicone, beeswax in the eye cream, shea butter, dimethicone, soybean oil in the #moisturizer), so this is geared towards #moisturizing the skin. 🌸 This is offset and made less oily feeling by the inclusion of some ingredients to lessen that potentially heavy feel with some various polymers (nylon-12, acrylamide/ammonium acryloyldimethyl taurate copolymer in the #moisturiser, alcohol, cyclohexasiloxane in the #eyecream). So I don't think this will feel overly oily, although it will probably be on the thicker side. 🌸 The illuminating claim is primarily achieved by an optic illusion - there are fine shimmer particles in the cream to reflect light / scatter light more flatteringly off the face (synthetic fluorphlogopite). They're there in small amounts so the effect will be subtle; this isn't a full-out highlighter, lol! 🌸 There is quite a variety of plant and other extracts (royal jelly, rye seed extract, etc.) so for those who enjoy such ingredients, this is a bonus. __________ #clozette #beauty #skincare #lorealparissg #lorealskincare #flatlay #skincareaddiction #skincarejunkie #skincareaddict #skincareblog #skincareblogger #skincarelover #skincarecommunity #skincareobsessed #skincareproducts #drugstorebeauty #budgetbeauty #ingredients #ingredientsmatter #rasianbeauty #abcommunity #abblogger
Swipe for #swatch | Oooohhhh this @lancomeofficial #rose #highlighter is probably the highlight of #lancome's #holiday2018 collection! The highlighter powder is pressed into gorgeous petal shapes, and you (gently) run your brush over the entire rose to pick up the powder. The shade itself is a gorgeous light-medium beige with some shimmer (visible but not too OTT), although to be frank I wouldn't dare to use it! I'd just keep it and stare at how pretty it is lol! _____________ #clozette #beauty #makeup #cosme #lancomesg #makeupjunkie #makeupswatch #makeupaddiction #lancomemakeup #makeuplover #makeupblog #makeupblogger #makeupaccount #beautyjunkie #beautyblogger #roses #highlighters #highlighterswatches #highlightonfleek #highlighteronfleek #highlightergoals #beautyaddict #beautymakeup
#deliciouscolours indeed with the @shuuemura #holiday2018 #makeup collection! This is a collaboration with @lamaisonduchocolat_paris and omg this is really a very gorgeous chocolate-themed collection! First we have a beautiful #eyeshadow #palette with 8 #eyeshadows (mostly #neutrals and browns, but there's a yellow gold in there to give that Christmas glam glow up), and you guys know this is definitely THE favourite for me as a neutrals addict! (If you hate neutrals there's a second palette with berry shades.) The #lipstick shades (I have 3 of them) also play into the chocolate theme without being all blah and brown. These have browned shades of red and plum, and give off a vibe that's more mature and sophisticated than vampy. The chocolate #cleansingoil is the existing Ultime8 #shuuemura formula, just dressed up for the season! Super psyched about these products! _____________ #clozette #shuuemurasg #beauty #cosme #cosmetics #abblogger #asianbeauty #makeupjunkie #flatlay #makeupaddict #makeupblogger #rasianbeauty #abcommunity #makeuplife #makeuplover #makeupobsessed #beautyflatlay #beautybloggers
#IngredientsLowdown | Pretty excited about trying this #kbeauty cult fave - the @cosrx #AHA 7 Whitehead Liquid! The AHA here is derived from glycolic acid (in small amounts). There is also some niacinamide and panthenol as well, which are nice #skincare ingredients to include too! Beyond that, this product has a very short ingredients list (thus minimizing the chances of including potentially irritating ingredients - thank goodness there aren't any of those irritating oils), but otherwise this is basically water, some humectants (butylene glycol, sodium hyaluronate), thickeners (xanthum gum), and preservatives (1,2 hexanediol, ethyl hexanediol). This product is looking good overall - short and sweet but powerful ingredients list, so I'm pretty jazzed to try it! I got mine from @altheakorea in case anyone's wondering. ______________ #clozette #beauty #cosrx #cosrxsg #kbeauty #kskincare #koreanbeauty #koreanskincare #koreanbeautyproduct #asianbeauty #asianskincare #abcommunity #abblogger #altheakorea #althea #altheaangels #skincareroutine #skincareproduct #asianbeautygram #rasianbeauty #skincarsaddict #decodethatil

A local Singaporean #skincare brand has launched! @sigiskin is now available on their website, and 3 products are launched: the Kaleanser #cleanser (which contains kale extracts), the Morning Glow #sunscreen (which I'm told doubles as a #moisturizer too, and also has avocado extracts and niacinamide), and the Pink Nectar #eyecream / #eyemask product (with peach extracts and vitamin e). The range is formulated in Korea too, so the textures are nice and lovely - morning too heavy or oily here. The products smell nice too - they have that "high end essential oil" sort of scent and are very nice and pleasant (reminds me of a barre studio I went to lol!!). Can't wait to check these out more! ____________ #clozette #beauty #skincare #naturalskincare #skincarejunkie #sigiskin #yourskinshappyplace #fruits #fruit #skincareproducts #botanicalskincare #naturalproducts #asianskincare #asianbeauty #rasianbeauty #abbloggers #abcommunity #skincarecommunity #sgskincare #sgbeauty
More in Stories | @chantecaille has launched its reformulated Bio Lifting #Serum + (and yes the + does indeed denote that this is the reformulated version), and it's coming to Singapore in January next year! As with some other #Chantecaille #skincare products, this reformulated serum has a lightweight texture and smells like roses! It also claims to both immediately tighten skin, as well as firm up skin over time too. You can apply it with fingers or with a roller (shown in photo). Formulation-wise it seems to be a mix of light humectants, and a bunch of plant extracts. I'll be taking a closer look at this soon! More in my stories if you wanna check it out. _________ #clozette #chantecaillesg #chantecaillebeauty #skincareproducts #skincarejunkie #skincareaddiction #skincarecommunity #serums #nofilter #highendbeauty #highendskincare #luxuryskincare #luxurybeauty #skincarelover #beautyjunkie #beautyaddict #beautylover #beautyaccount #beautyblog #beautyblogger #beautybloggers #naturalskincare #naturalproducts #naturalbeauty #naturalskincareproducts
#IngredientsLowdown | So I didn't realize this, but the ever popular @lorealskin #youthcode pre-#essence actually got a slight formula tweak - and I do actually like the new formula (2nd photo) as compared to the old formula (3rd photo, from a blog review of this product I did literally years ago). Now it's been awhile since I last looked up the #lorealparissg Youth Code formula, so this could be super ancient news, but the tweaks are really made more to the minor ingredients. The fruit extracts were removed and replaced by peptides, which I think is a good move - peptides are often found in anti-aging products and are pretty nice #skincare ingredients to have, so why not? The humectant sodium hylauronate also seems to be present in larger amounts with this formula. Otherwise if you've loved the old Youth Code you'll love this - the key ingredients are still water bifida ferment lysate (still 2nd ingredient, so pretty high concentrations!), humectants (glycerin), alcohol, and a gentle exfoliant (HEPES), and an emollient (dimethicone) is pretty much still the same. ___________ #clozette #lorealparis #lorealskincare #lorealskin #loreal #lorealyouthcode #serum #flatlay #skincareaddict #skincarejunkie #skincarelover #skincarecommunity #skincareblogger #skincareview #skincareaddiction #skincareproducts #beautyaddict #beautyblog #beautyblogger #beautylover #beautyflatlay #beautybloggers
#ReigniteTheExcitement with the @crabtreeevelynsg #CrabTreeChristmas #holiday2018 gifts and sets! You guys know me, so you know the #cookies are my fave items, lol! I have white chocolate cranberry which is good for those with a sweet tooth, there's also a hazelnut flavour that's my personal fave. If you're looking for #bathandbody products (one of the #crabtreeandevelyn specialties), there's very nice coordinating #bodylotion and #showergel sets that look nice and presentable. And for stocking stuffers or genetic "secret santa" presents where you just want something anyone can use, the #handcreams are also pretty nice too. This year the packaging is also retro-inspired with a mod twist, inspired by 1970s-era London, so bonus if you have a friend with that sort of aesthetic. But the items here are all gift-worthy and presentable! _________ #clozette #beauty #CrabtreeEvelynSG #skincare #xmas2018 #holidaycollection #christmas2018 #nofilter #beautybloggers #beautyjunkie #iphoneonly #crabtreeandevelynsg #bodycare #bathproducts #holidayvibes #beautyblog #beautyblogger #flatlay #beautyaddict
When your #hairoil has a literal flower in it! This @lorealhair #elseve #extraordinaryoil has botanical jasmine oil infusion for that little extra something! The oil itself is formulated to be lightweight, with two kinds of silicones (cyclopentasiloxane and dimethiconol) giving hair a smoother texture and shine. This has a really nice scent too! _________ #clozette #beauty #hair #hairproduct #haironfleek #loreal #lorealparis #lorealhair #lorealparissg #lorealhaircare #lorealelseve #nofilter #flatlay #beautyaddict #beautyaccount #beautyjunkie #beautylover #beautybloggers #beautyblog #beautyblogger #beautycommunity
So this isn't as much a #flatlay as it is a pile of mess (lol), but these @thebodyshopsg #bathandbody and #bodycare products still look good! That little owl in the center (called Olivia the owl) is a very cute looking #giftset that has #showergel, #bathbomb, #handcream minis - two each - in both strawberry and coconut scents, while that box with the deer on it is a mask headband - complete with deer ears! And the cute house box has #bodybutter, shower gel and a bath net to foam it all up! If you've got a friend who's a #thebodyshop fan (or who likes spending a lot of time in the shower), I think they will appreciate these! __________ #clozette #beauty #thebodyshopsg #tbssg #naturalproducts #naturalbeauty #holiday2018 #enchantedbynature #christmas2018 #giftsets #beautyblogger #beautyjunkie #beautyaddict #beautyblog #beautyaccount #beautymess #beautyflatlay #beautybloggers #beautylover #beautycommunity
#IngredientsLowdown | No Monday blues with good #skincare! Check out the new @lrpsg product, which is their famous #effaclar duo + but with #spf30! This is actually quite legit for a product that isn't intended to be #sunscreen - it's got multiple UV filters (octocrylene, homosalate, ethylhexyl salicylate, methoxydibenzoylmethane), which give both UVA and UVB protection, as well as a formula that uses many of the same active ingredients of the original #effaclarduo - niacinamide and capryloyl salicylic acid are a couple of the blemish ingredients that also occur here! The product does contain alcohol (6th ingredient), whereas the original Effaclar Duo doesn't, and I assume the alcohol functions as a solvent for some of the sunscreen ingredients. Overall, this is a pretty good take on the original, and if you liked the original Effaclar Duo +, you'll like this too. __________ #clozette #beauty #lrpsg #larocheposay #larocheposaysg #skincaretips #skincareproducts #skincarecommunity #skincareblogger #skincareaddict #skincarejunkie #skincareobsessed #skincarereview #instaskincare #beautybloggers #beautyaddict #beautyjunkie #drugstoreskincare #drugstorebeauty
Is it too early to start drooling over all the upcoming Christmas collections and products? I think not! These @thefaceshop_sg and @belif_singapore #skincare #holiday2018 sets are pretty nice! They include #giftsets of their bestselling chia seed range for the skincare lover (2 #sheetmasks, 1 full sized cleanser and 1 full sized chia seed recharge cream #moisturizer in its own box), and a "safe #giftset for any occasion" box set of 3 hand creams. #belif also has a very pretty travel-themed design for its true cream moisturizing bomb, and it's a nice collectible too! __________ #clozette #beauty #thefaceshopsg #tfssg #belifsingapore #belifsg #kbeauty #kskincare #koreanskincare #koreanbeauty #abcommunity #abskincare #abblogger #asianskincare #skincareproducts #skincarejunkie #thefaceshop #skincareaddict #skincareblogger #sheetmask #rasianbeauty #rasianskincare
So I got these @shuuemura Matte Supreme #liquidlipsticks sometime back but never listed them! Better late than never I guess? Anyway these are very well-pigmented (as I've come to expect from #shuuemura - pigmentation is always on point), and dry down to a matte finish. The shades I have are all very sophisticated earth-inspired shades, and very fall/winter appropriate! They are a much more wearable take on the brown lipstick trend that has been going around lately. If you're wondering which shade to try, Br1 and PK1 are the "safest" shades, while WN3 is a campy shade. OR1 and RD3 are variants of the classic red lip. _________ #clozette #shuuemurasg #lipsignature #liquidlipstick #makeup #cosme #flatlay #lippies #cosmetics #asianmakeup #asianbeauty #abbloggers #abcommunity #beauty #beautyblog #beautyblogger #nofilter #makeupjunkie #beautyjunkie #japanesemakeup #makeupaddict #makeuplover
