Hello sun protection fanatics! Would you smear some yellow paste on your face and head out if I told you it’d protect you from sunburn and sun damage? Probably not huh? Well, many girls and even guys in Myanmar (Burma) won’t bat an eyelid about going public with a face full of such a paste to protect their skin from the scorching Myanmar sun. Yes, we’re talking about a yellow paste of thanaka powder–Myanmar’s age-old skincare secret that keeps the Burmese from having their face damaged by the sun’s harmful rays even after hours of outdoor work in the fields.
Hey green beauty lovers in Singapore! Look at what we have in our market now! It’s Antipodes, an organic beauty brand from New Zealand! I don’t know about you ladies but I’m really excited that this brand has finally graced our shores. I was disappointed that they’d dropped me to run a review for them some years ago when they learned that I’m based in Singapore. But hallelujah, I’m finally reviewing the products now that they’re here–better late than never!
When I first used the Estelle a Thild Cleansing Gel for Sensitive Skin, I thought I’d bought an expired product. What’s with that RANCID smell? I was really upset because I was looking forward to using the cleanser, having heard some nice things about it. Yet when I checked, I realized the product is well within the expiry date so my next thought was, Zalora, the store I got the product from, had somehow screwed up the storage. Oh what crap–that brand new cleanser is going down the drain!
Today, I’m reviewing a secret weapon in my beauty arsenal—the Reviva Labs Collagen Regeneration Cream. I’m not exactly a fan of face creams for I prefer face serums and oils but I’m so loving this one and I’ve included it in my beauty staple since end of last year. This is definitely one potent anti-aging cream that lives up to its promise to create a “newness” to my skin. And the best thing I like about it? I don’t have to use it continually!
