How does a natural CC cream sound to you? Appealing, yes? Well, how about one that is also 70 percent organic? Awesome much, isn’t it? But wait. How is a CC cream better than a BB cream?

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.
Looks like I have to retract what I’ve written in April about facials being a once-a-year pilgrimage for me because I just went for another one two weeks ago, and this time, it’s at Hadara Aesthetics Boutique. This is a new aesthetic salon that uses the DERMAGOLD range I’d featured earlier in the year. Given that I’ve had a good experience with that brand of skincare, I thought a facial using the same products might be worth checking out. In addition, it helps that Hadara is conveniently located enough for me.
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!
