Review: Anessa Perfect UV Sunscreen Skincare Gel SPF50+ PA++++ and Perfect UV Sunscreen Skincare Milk SPF50+ PA++++

I think I have finally found my One for sunscreen. It is the sunscreen that I keep coming back for more, despite having many choices in the shelf. And it is the Anessa Perfect UV Sunscreen Skincare Gel SPF50+ PA++++.

I was a bit hesitant to get Anessa at first, due to the high price tag. 90g is retailed for RM150 in Malaysia, or RM135 on sales. I finally decided to get one during my last trip to Taiwan, where Anessa is available in almost every store I visited at a reasonable price of RM100/90g with a free mini sample of the Anessa Perfect UV Sunscreen Skincare Milk SPF50+ PA++++, a decision that I did not regret.

Now Anessa is the sunscreen that I reach out for 90% of the time, due to its nice texture and quality. Read on for more below!

Review: Kuramoto Bijin Rice Fermented Face Wash 藏元美人酒粕洗颜料

Rice fermented ingredients recently became so popular in Japan and Taiwan. Many cleansing products with rice ferment are selling well across the internet, especially the PDC Wine Yeast Wash-off Mask. I bought both Kuramoto Bijin and PDC rice fermented cleansing products during my last trip to Taiwan after many are raving about them in the internet. I kept the PDC for later as I am still struggling to finish off my other masks. Meanwhile, let's talk about the Kuramoto Bijin Rice Fermented Face Wash (Mandarin: 藏元美人酒粕洗颜料) that many are raving about too.

Review: Hada Nature Carbonated Skincare - Cleansing

I discovered Hada Nature during my last trip to Taiwan. It was all over the shelf in Cosme Japan, Cosmed, and even Watson's outlets! It claims to be the number one best-selling cleansing pack in Japan, and I also overheard people recommending the product to their friends. The price was not cheap though. A bottle is retailed at about NTD1,200 or RM150-160. However, I decided to pick it up since I happened to need a cleansing pack and that I cannot resist anything carbonated.

Below are my thoughts after using the product for a good two months now!

Review: Belif UV Protector Multi Sunscreen+ SPF50+ PA++++ and UV Protecter Almighty Sun Stick SPF 50+ PA++++

Sunscreen is a very important skincare step. All morning routine should always end with a sunscreen to keep your skin protected from UV damage, in addition to toner and moisturizer. In fact, I elaborated about the importance of sunscreen in my previous reviews here. A good sunscreen should have at least SPF30 and PA+++ for wider protection. Sometimes sunscreen is formulated with colour-correcting and concealing properties to cater for different needs.

In today's review, I'm gonna share two types of sunscreen with additional benefits or properties for different consumer needs:
  • Belif UV Protecter Multi Sun Screen SPF 50+ PA++++
  • Belif UV Protecter Almighty Sun Stick SPF 50+ PA++++

Review: IOPE Bio Essence Intensive Conditioning Bio-redox

I remember calling my first IOPE Bio Essence Intensive Conditioning the best alternative to SK-II Facial Treatment Essence. And I still think it was. But IOPE, just like all other Korean products, always keeps renovating to catch up with the ever-changing beauty trend, has recently reformulated its best-selling Bio Essence Intensive Conditioning hence I am ended up with this reformulated IOPE Bio Essence Intensive Conditioning Bio-Redox that I am not sure is it still good as my first one.

In today’s review, I’m gonna share with you guys my thoughts on this reformulated IOPE Bio Essence after using it for a good 2 months.

Review: Neogence Centella Renewing and Verbena Brightening Mask

These Neogence masks really changed my mind on Neogence masks. Neogence masks used to really itch me out for whatsoever reasons so I am always careful with them. I only bought 2 boxes of Neogence botanical line but even that was shared with my friends. Although the Verbena Brightening Mask still itches me out like all other Neogence masks, but I am surprisingly in love with the Centella one!

Review: Belif The White Decoction - Ultimate Brightening Toner

I advised that it is best not to stock up on products as you might not feel like using it after months and months of waiting for other products to finish. The products may be near expiry and that its quality might deteriorate over time. Now this tragedy somehow happens to me again. I bought this Belif The White Decoction – Ultimate Brightening Toner when it was FIRST launched, to get that buy RM350-RM50 + 4 miniatures deal, which I deeply regret now. Not only is Belif coming out with better promotions, I also no longer want to use this toner. This has nothing to do with the toner actually, it is just a personal preference that I want to use my Sulwhasoo Snowise Brightening Water, and that I am doing just fine with my IOPE Bio Essence Redox. But I can’t, because this Belif toner will expire in another 5 months (now I am on my 2nd month into it, 3 more months to go) if I don’t start to use it now.

Lesson learned, never stock up on cosmetic products. Ok, move on.

Review: Fleuri Clear Gel Cleanse

In today's review, I'm gonna talk about this Fleuri Gel Cleanse that is so hyped up in Facebook. Many personal shoppers who are hunting for great Japanese products are raving about this. This cleanser, despite its simple ingredients list, is said to be able to remove makeup, reduce blackheads and deep cleanse the skin.

Let's talk a closer look at the product below:

Review: Le Ment Sparkling Oil Cleansing & Shampoo

You guys know that I am quite into J-beauty recently. I bought many J-beauty products, supplements in particular, in the past few months. So imagine how excited I was when the premium J-beauty retailer www.jp-my.store approached me to try out two of their best-selling products!

Enter Le Ment Sparkling Oil Cleansing & Shampoo.

Althea Angels Haul Review: A'bloom

I received this cute little box from Althea several weeks ago. Althea always sends us fantastic new launches, and this time we are blessed with these cutest products from the colourful brand A'bloom!

You open the box to see a lot of cuties packed together in one:

  • A'bloom BHA Blackhead Blaster
  • A'bloom Giant Meringue Puff
  • A'bloom Baby Meringue Puffs
  • A'bloom Moisturizing Watermelon Mask Sheet
  • A'bloom Nourishing Avocado Mask Sheet
  • A'bloom Brightening Lemon Lime Mask Sheet
  • A'bloom Anti-Blemish Peach Mask Sheet

These are in my opinion best gifts to give to your sisters, best friends or any other young girls who love cute cosmetic products!

Let me walk you through the products one-by-one below.

Review: Mediheal Golden Chip Circle Point Mask

Mediheal is quite innovative in their sheet mask collection. They came out with clay mask in a sheet, ampoule mask, acupuncture mask and so on in the recent years. Today, I’m gonna talk about this Golden Chip Circle Point Mask, which is essentially its acupuncture mask that is meant for anti-aging and wrinkles reducing properties.

I shared my thoughts on its sister product – the Black Chip Circle Point Mask and Blue Chip Circle Point Mask earlier, now onto the golden one for anti-aging!

Review: Pantene Micellar Shampoo - Detox & Moisturize

Pantene did a great job promoting their newly released Micellar Shampoo. You can see them almost everywhere, displayed at top of the shelf. Many beauty reviewers are raving about them, among which the “beauty guru” from Taiwan, Mr. Kelvin.

Besides, these shampoos are not pricey at all. 300ml is retailed at roughly RM17-24 depending on sales/stores, whereas 500ml one is only somewhere below RM30. That’s quite reasonable given that my favourite shampoo from Innisfree is already costing me RM45 for 300ml.

Since the Klorane shampoo that I recently ventured into failed to impress, I decided to pick this one up from a local Guardian store (you can get this from Watson’s too). Below are my thoughts on the shampoo after using it for some time now.

Review: Huxley Secret of Sahara Oil; Light and More

Actually, I was a bit hesitant to give facial oil a try. They are usually rich, overwhelming, or greasy when applied. Belif Rose Gemma Oil was a rare exception. I couldn't resist the enticing rose scent that it gives so I went on and paid some RM260 for a bottle of 30ml worth of rosey-ness. But even Belif feels kinda heavy on the skin too.

But for Huxley oil, it is a different case. I actually bought it after trying a sample of it earlier, and was really impressed by how facial oil can be so lightweight, moisturizing and non-greasy at all. Many Huxley products feel kinda heavy or overwhelming on my skin, like the Huxley Cleansing Water, Sunscreen, and even its Toner, but surprisingly not its Oil. So today, I'm gonna talk about this uber lightweight, moisturizing and deeply antioxidizing facial oil that really impresses me. It is the oil that I will recommend and probably repurchase in the future!

Review: Dr. Wu Hydrating Glacier Water

I think I finally establish a healthy relationship with my facial mists now. I used to have too many mists than I can handle, often times rushing to finish them off despite not really needing so much. Now, I only buy as and when needed, so I don’t need to “rush off” to finish my facial mists, and can enjoy searching for the best mists for my existing skin condition.

I bought this Dr. Wu Hydrating Glacier Water from Watson’s several weeks ago. I fell in love almost immediately after testing it out on my face, so I brought it home. I am glad that Dr. Wu provides a tester because I didn’t like the Neogen mist so I may not have the courage to buy this if I didn’t get it test it on my face.

Review: Mediheal R:NA Proatin Whitening Mask

I always love sheet mask with creamy essence. Well-made ones tend to be really moisturizing and nourishing without being greasy or overwhelming on the skin. This R:NA Whitening Proatin Mask is one of these creamy serum masks that impress me a lot lately. I also loved similar ones from The Face Shop. Not many brands produce nice creamy serum mask so I am glad that this Mediheal one turns out to be great.

Review: Sunplay Skin Aqua Tone Up UV Essence SPF50+ PA++++

Honestly, I didn’t plan to get this sunscreen when it was first launched. The texture looks rich in the promotional brochures. I also don’t like the fact that it has skin toning effect, which I am not fond of. Besides, I always prefer Biore over Sunplay sunscreens. I guess I would never buy this if I didn’t forget to bring my sunscreen when I was travelling back to my hometown, and I couldn’t find other sunscreens that I wanted to try when I visited the nearby Watson’s store.

Review: Belif Prime Infusion Repair Essential Mask

I was sent this Prime Infusion Repair Essential Mask by Belif during Christmas last year. They were kind enough to give me some miniatures of their newly launched Belif Prime Infusion miniatures, which I will try and share with you guys soon, but now our focus shall be on this Prime Infusion Repair Essential Mask that many of us are excited about!

Belif Prime Infusion Repair Essential Mask comes in a box of 6. I have tried out 3-4 pieces in the past few months, under different skin conditions and at different circumstances or period of the month to get a better picture of its efficacy and performance on my skin.

Below are my thoughts on the products.

Review: Pyunkang Yul Acne Facial Cleanser

I have been searching for the best cleanser for my husband. He has acne-prone, dehydrated, and oily skin with huge pores. He wants a gentle and hydrating cleanser, within certain budget. Most guys don’t like to spend a lot on skincare I must say. So, I was thrilled when I came across this Pyunkang Yul Acne Facial Cleanser. It looks simple and hydrating, it is affordable, and it is also designed for acne-prone skin type by a reputable Korean clinical brand. Now, let’s look at my husband’s date with this cleanser that I think will fit him perfectly!

Most of us are familiar with Pyunkang Yul. It has recently become so popular that almost every Instagrammers are raving about it. It uses simple but effective oriental medical ingredients for skincare. Recently, it came out with this Acne line for acne-prone and oily skin types.
