1. If you haven’t seen it yet, then yes you should check out my review on the @originsusa #megamushroom #skincare range! These #origins #products are marketed at sensitive and stressed skin, and I take a look at the ingredients inside and see if it’s worthy of the hype! Also you get to see my top 3 picks from the range. #clozette #beauty

     
  2. Two of my favourite @thebalm_cosmetics #makeup and #beauty #products: the famous #highlighter, #maryloumanizer, a high-shimmer beige highlighter, and #thebalm #timebalm #concealer, which is nicely pigmented and good for covering blemishes and undereyes. I don’t have that many #thebalmsg items but I love what I do have! Anyone else have any thebalm faves? #clozette

     
  3. New #hairproducts I’m excited to try - the @johnfriedasg #FullRepair #haircare range, which has 5 #products: a #shampoo, a #conditioner, a root lifting #foam (will be super useful for my flat hair), a #serum, and a #deepconditioner (that kinda seems to function like a #hairmask). I’ve tried the @johnfriedafr Full Volume range before and liked it, so I hope this will be good too! #clozette

     
  4. #ThrowbackThursday = let-me-show-you-old-#makeup-and #beauty-#products-in-my-stash day! Today’s makeup is this @smashboxcosmetics #softlights #highlighter in Dolce Vita, from the #smashboxcosmetics collaboration with #Tokidoki all the way back in like 2009 or something. (Yes this is super old, I have a #makeuphoarder problem, don’t judge me!) I love my #smashbox #highlighters, and I have this horrible habit of trying to collect them…though I’ve gotten much better at de-stashing over the years! You can see that I’ve tried to limit use of this to the sides of the product, where the brushmarks won’t affect the imprint. Lol! #clozette

     
  5. Obviously @elizabetharden is a brand with #skincare expertise! Below are some of their classic #products as well as some new additions:
    ❶ @ardencanada #eighthourcream is definitely a classic! I have the original skin protector version and the nighttime miracle #moisturizer
    ❷ Adding on to the #elizabethardensg #ceramide range is a two-step self-foaming #mask and replenishing #serum. You get these two in a set and use the mask first, then the serum.
    ❸ And most recently, the #flawlessfuture range to target the first signs of aging. This has an #eyegel as well as a #caplet serum (which I predict is going to be popular) #clozette #beauty

     
  6. #New #skincare #products - for #men! I don’t always feature #mensskincare so this is pretty cool. @kiehlssg #OilEliminator range for men includes a Deep #Cleansing #Exfoliating #FaceWash for Men (a #cleanser that also has micro beads so it also is an #exfoliator), the Refreshjng #ShineControl #Toner for Men, and the 24-Hour Anti-Shine #Moistuizer for Men, which apparently also includes aerogel technology to keep you #shinefree and #oilfree for longer! Packaged in macho-looking #green tubes and labels. I’ll be reviewing these on my blog soon! #beauty #clozette

     
  7. Excited to review these @alexiares_and_ani #skincare #products! Although #alexiaresandani is a small brand, they have some really impressive skincare products including products formulated with retinol, vitamin c and plant extracts and oils. I have their ❶ The Pacifist #Moisturizing #Lotion, ❷ The Alchemist Pomegranate Enzyme #Exfoliator, ❸ The Twins Vitamin C and E #Serum, ❹ The Advocate #Retinol #Serum, ❺ The Co-Conspirator Revitalizing #EyeGel, and ❻ The Luminary Vitamin Clay #Masque. Can’t wait to try them out! Also bonus points for the #pretty #blackandwhite #boxes! #beauty #clozette

     
  8. If you haven’t seen it yet, my latest (and final) #omysba2014 #blog post is a #beauty #tutorial using some of the products shown, including #panasonicsg #hair #products and #lashcurler, as well as #makeup products featuring @benefitcosmeticssg #eyeshadow, @etudehousesingapore #liptint (AGAIN I know!), @urbandecaycosmetics #eyeliner, @lauramerciersg #highlighter, and @makeupforeversg #powder #foundation! You can see the blogpost here, and with that my obligations are done! #clozette http://blog.omy.sg/sba-plus/2014/07/28/beauty-tutorial-simple-everyday-makeup-and-loose-curls-with-panasonic-beauty-tools/

     
  9. #VitaminC #skincare #products! I’ve always been a big fan of #Vitamin C, because it’s one of the ingredients that’s effective and actually has the science to back it up! It’s great as a #brightener (so you’ll find it in tons of #whitening products) and as an #antioxidant, and helps with skin turnover (so you’ll find it in some #antiaging products too). The only downside? It’s quite hard to find products that have effective amounts of Vitamin C, and some forms of Vitamin C (like Ascorbic acid, for example) are notoriously unstable and thus need to be packaged properly (no jars etc). So with that in mind, here are some of my picks that I think are efficacious and properly packaged and easily available on the market!
    ❶ @kiehlssg Powerful Strength #LineReducing #Concentrate - this has 10.5% Ascorbic acid, and is properly packaged in a dark brown bottle with a pump! IMHO this is one of the too easy-to-get properly package Ascorbic acid #serum products out on the market (and this wasn’t actually sent for review, I actually got it on my own)
    ❷ #Chamos #Acaci Vita-C #Powder - this is actually pure #ascorbicacid in powder form, and you can either add it to distilled water for a vitamin c serum or add it to your moisturizer. I like that I can control how much I use and the powder ensures that the Ascorbic acid won’t oxidize before I even use it!
    ❸ @beautydirectsg #Juju #Aquamoist Whitening C #serum - has Ascorbyl Glucoside, a stable form of Vitamin C, as one of the top 5 ingredients
    ❹ #beautydirectsg Juju Aquamoist Whitening C Cream - this has Ascorbyl Glucoside, which although isn’t as effective as straight up Ascorbic acid, is stable when in a jar. #clozette #beauty

     
  10. New #skincare #products to review soon: the @elizabetharden #flawlessfuture #ceramide caplet #serum and Flawless Future #eyegel! These are from @ardencanada’s new #antiaging range and all super lightweight and are targeting women seeing the first signs of aging. #beauty #clozette
