1. #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

     
  2. 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

     
  3. Happy weekend everyone! Tagged by @redrubymaya to show the last best #makeup and #beauty thing I bought, but actually it’s more like last best things I bought, lol! Best part is, all of this #shopping was done during #sales!
    ➊ @rougebunnyrouge #eyeshadow in Abyssinian Catbird - super pretty olive!
    ➋ @etudehousesingapore Color Pop Shine #Tint - you guys know how much I like this #liptint already, so won’t belabor the point
    ➌ @zoevacosmetics Luxe Face Definer 100 - I bought this after I bought the 101 #brush and liked it - they’re quite value-for-money, which is always a plus!
    ➍ @sigmabeauty #brushes - I bought the Large Angled #Contour F40 which is actually quite small, more like a blush brush size, and the Large Powder F30 which is gorgeous
    ➎ Finally, some #skincare! This is the #AlphaHydrox #Retinol ResQ #facecream - the only one I didn’t #haul on sale, but even at full price it’s probably one of the best value-for-money, properly packaged, non-prescription #retinoids you can get right now! #clozette

     
  4. Lovely new #skincare #products from @elizabetharden: The #FlawlessFuture range, which targets women in their late 20s who have the first signs of aging. The products include the #Ceramide #MoistureCream (#moisturizer), the Ceramide Moisture Cream SPF30, the Ceramide #EyeGel, and the #Ceramide #Caplet #Serum. Every one of these products feels light and silky on the skin. Can’t wait to try and review these! #clozette #omysba2014 #beauty

     
  5. Some @lizearlebeautyco #makeup and #beauty #products I love:
    ➊ @lizearle_usa Gentle Face #Exfoliator - this is probably the most emollient and moisturizing #scrub I’ve ever used
    ➋ The all-time #skincare #classic #CleanseandPolish - it’s a luxurious cream cleanser that my family uses too!
    ➌ Last but not least, #lizearle #eyeshadow in Twig, a nice neutral deep brown with slight shimmer. Super pretty! #clozette

     
  6. New #skincare #product I’m using: this @lorealparissg #Revitalift #Laser 3X #eyecream, which is supposed to have #antiaging properties to help with wrinkles, depuffing, all that jazz. My old eye cream got used up and this happened to be lying around! That stunning #red packaging looks promising, hope it works! #clozette #beauty

     
  7. Pretty excited to review these #origins #skincare #products! This is the #originssg #MegaMushroom skincare range! I had heard of the #Mushroom range before but hasn’t realized quite how extensive it was - there’s a #cleanser, a soothing #treatment #lotion, a soothing #facelotion, an advanced face #serum, an eye serum, a soothing #facecream and a #facemask! That’s 7 products in all! Definitely a happy moment when these dropped in! I’ve indeed been very fortunate this week, first hearing that I’m one of the finalists for Best Beauty Blog for #omysba2014 (which is totally unexpected! Voting starts on Monday - not expecting to win but I would be so happy if anyone votes for me!) and then getting these lovely Origins products in. I guess after nearly 5 years of blogging, thinking I’ve seen and done it all, it looks like my old hobby still brings some nice surprises! :) #clozette @clozetteco

     
  8. New #skincare #product from @kiehlssg - the #Calendula #DeepCleansing Foaming #FaceWash! I’ve been testing this #cleanser and actually really like it, and I’ll be doing a review on it soon! (Soon meaning in the coming week or so, lol.) #clozette

     
  9. New #skincare #product to try: @elizabetharden’s #classic #8hourcream! The uses for this are endless it seems: as a #moisturizer, as an #ointment, as a barrier between your skin and the elements, and so on. Now to see if it lives up to the hype! #clozette

     
  10. My #review of @kiehlssg Ultra Facial #OilFree #skincare range is up on the blog, including the usual ingredients analysis! The range consists of the #Cleanser, #Toner, and #Gel-#Cream #moisturizer. It’s clearly formulated for #oilyskin and hot weather, so depending on your skin type some will like this and some won’t, but I think it will be popular here in this Singapore weather! #clozette
