Burt’s Bees Pomegranate Lip Balm

436320128 e2f696cd11 m Burts Bees Pomegranate Lip BalmI’m on the path of no return when it comes to Burt’s Bees.  Just one lip balm and I’m a confirmed convert. 

In fact, since the last time I wrote about their Beewax Lip Balm, I’ve grown fonder of that lip balm by the day.  While it isn’t very moisturising, it really keeps my lips hydrated as long as I do not wipe, wash or eat it off.

So today, I went back to Dargon Dors Cosmetics (Kim Leng Store) at People’s Park Complex with the intention of buying their Honey Lip Balm tube. 

Toners: Is there a difference?

434460692 b3c1844dd0 o Toners:  Is there a difference?While I’ve been using toners on my face since I started out using skincare, I’ve never actually thought much about it.  I just use it because it’s supposed to be part of the cleansing process to clear out the impurities.  And over the years, I didn’t really see a lot of difference on days when I’ve forgotten to swipe on the toner.

Pure vitamin E oil reduces laugh lines

Vitamin E which is widely used in moisturisers and creams is a well known home remedy for clearing up scars.  In fact, many have said that a little vitamin E dabbed on the skin can also remove stretch marks, and even heal wounds.  But some studies have also refuted such claims and that the scar-busting properties of vitamin E are overstated.

Nature’s Gate Organics Deodorant

421000698 50c4d41641 m Natures Gate Organics DeodorantI was really excited to find Nature’s Gate Organics Deodorant on the shelves at the pharmacy.   

This is a 70% certified organic vegan formula that is  not only hypoallergenic but contains no parabens, no propylene glycol and no aluminum chlorohydrate.  At the price of S$10.90, this is definitely worth a buy if it works. 

And I’m happy to say that it does…for awhile at least!  

I bought the lemongrass and clary sage deodorant stick and to be honest, was skeptical that its totally natural botanical ingredients can get rid of my armpit odour.  But it does!  My underarms were kept almost fresh after a few hours of usage indoors.  Not bad!
