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.
In my article on tips to optimize your facial moisturizer, I mentioned the importance of leaving your toner damp before applying your moisturizer as the cream will help seal the hydrating benefits from the toner deep into the skin. However, if you’re using a face serum, when should you apply your serum and when should you apply your moisturizer?
With the lower exchange rate between Singapore dollars and US dollars, it’s really a good time to buy US cosmetics now. Like Benefit Cosmetics for example; it’s really much cheaper buying it online than from the Tangs counter. If you are able to chalk up purchases of US$100, you can save on the shipping cost by using promo code INTLSHIP at checkout. In fact, I just placed an order of that amount and the total shipping cost saved was close to US$20 because I remember to use that promo code.
Those in Singapore may have noticed that Watson’s has started to bring in quite a number of natural and organic skincare products from Trilogy, Lavera, Yes To Carrot, and Sukin Organics. I’ve been particularly pleased to find Sukin Organics really affordable and decided to test out two of their products. The first in review here is Sukin Organic Foaming Facial Cleanser.
All skincare products from Sukin Organics are said to use only 100% natural active ingredients and contain no sodium lauryl sulphate, artificial fragrances, petrochemicals, harsh detergents, animal derivatives, mineral oil and parabens.
