Sunscreens: Capital Soleil vs Anthelios XL

2398107812 ed894d5b46 o Sunscreens: Capital Soleil vs Anthelios XL

These are from my recent Mexoryl-based sunscreen loot:

  1. Vichy Capital Soleil SPF 50+  Face Cream For Reactive Skin    
  2. La Roche-Posay Anthelios XL SPF 50+ Fluide Extreme For Face 
  3. La-Roche-Posay Anthelios XL SPF 50+ Lait Veloute Face & Body Lotion

In my earlier entry about Mexoryl-based sunscreens for maximum protection, I mentioned I wanted to get one or two to try out but eventually, I went out to buy three of them.  They were all below S$40 and La Roche-Posay Anthelios XL 50+ Fluide Extreme in particular was even going for under S$20 with a special promotion.  So it was really hard to resist.

Do Frownies Facial Pads erase frown lines?

Okay, call me a sucker.  I love quick fixes.  I love products that promise me overnight miracles.  I love products that require very little effort on my part.  Even though half the time, I know they don’t quite deliver whatever they promise.  And it was the sucker in me that decided to order Frownies Facial Pads from Drugstore some months ago.  Come on, they’re cheap, and they look like fun anyway.  More importantly, I have lines on my forehead that I wanted to get rid of without having to resort to Botox.
