I remember a time of my life when pearl powder featured in my diet and in my skincare. Not only was I ingesting pearl powder, I was applying the powder liberally to my face every night before bedtime. I can’t recall how the pearl powder did for me then but I remember my mom telling me that pearl powder can make my face fairer. So I know the benefits of using pearl powder on our skin somewhat and am quite sold on the idea of using it again when I received the Moroccan Natural Pearl Powder.
Do you like buffet? Well, I don’t like them with the exception of one at a particular Japanese restaurant. It’s value-for-money with a good selection of food and I usually find myself heading for a second go. But today it’s not buffet I’m blogging about. Instead, I’m going to share with you five beauty products I gave a second go in recent months. Although they’ve not made it to my holy grail list of products yet but they’re worth highlighting simply because I don’t repurchase beauty products that easily given that I have a multitude of choices as a beauty blogger.
I was first captivated by the packaging of Moroccan Natural. It must have been the mesmerizing blue bottles with the matching blue labels. That along with the lure of argan oil which works very well for my skin and the prospect of indulging in the sweet scent of rose oil made me all excited about their offerings. Added to that is the fact that I’m predisposed to loving oil on my skin already. So naturally, I needed no persuasion to try their products.
I am quite a snob when it comes to hotel toiletries. I don’t use them unless absolutely necessary and instead, I always bring my own. However, I noticed that more and more hotels are offering luxury brands or spa collection toiletries that are said to be natural, green and sometimes organic too. For example, the toiletries at The Sentosa Resort & Spa, Spa Botanica, is in the natural category. June Jacobs Spa Collection, the resident toiletry brand at Hyatt is also made without parabens. Out of curiosity, I ran a check and found out that hotel amenities are being redefined and more and more favor products using natural therapeutical ingredients.
I was reading the papers the other day and caught a glimpse of the beauty secret of Maggie Cheung, an ex-Hong Kong beauty queen and a rather famous actress. Some of her more memorable movies include In The Mood For Love and 2046. Anyway, according to the article, she jumpstarts her day with a glass of warm water every morning. Well, I got curious and tried to find out more and it seems the news isn’t exactly right because various sources are reporting that it’s not just warm water she’s drinking but it’s really warm water with sea salt every morning on an empty stomach. Don’t ask me how she can drink salty water but apparently, this daily morning routine has been keeping the 49-year-old actress slim.
