Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Protective Sun Lotion – SPF 30
What I don’t like about regular sun protection lotion is that most of them feel like you’re rubbing ointment on your body because of the greasy aftermath as it doesn’t get absorbed quickly, often leaving a whitish residue on your skin. But the Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Protective Sun Lotion with SPF 30 is an exception. It applies like moisturising lotion not a typical sunscreen, is non-sticky and leaves behind a sweet scent that smells like a mix of vanilla and coconut.
Dove Purely Pampering Shea Butter and Vanilla Body Cream
As soon as you twist open the cap you are welcomed by a delicious burst of Vanilla and white musk which feels like aroma therapy in a cream pot. The cream’s consistency is very thick but once you rub it on it just melts into your skin. Shea is said to be a unique skin emollient and moisturizer, and has become an effective treatment for rashes, skin discoloration and most popularly, stretch marks. Many women have advised me to start using shea butter lotion to help minimize stretch marks as my pregnant belly grows. It’s not a fool proof remedy, but it does help it some extent so I see no harm in it especially when the Dove Purely Pampering Shea Butter and Vanilla Body Cream smells so good.
Inglot Freedom AMC Eye Shadow Square – Silver Shine
If you’re going on a night out with your girls, the Inglot Freedom AMC Eye Shadow in Silver is a perfect highlighter for your smokey eye. It coats well, is easy to blend and has good staying power which will probably last you all night at the club.
GlamBox Stippling Makeup Brush
I don’t normally apply foundation with a brush, as I use a makeup sponge to apply then finish with my hands to blend in any surface residue. So for a change, I tried the GlamBox Stippling Makeup Brush to apply liquid foundation and the results were satisfactory. The bristles are soft so they don’t irritate your face (if you have uber sensitive skin like myself) and gives you a flawless, airbrushed look. The brush can also be used for blushers, bronzers and highlighters.
Caudalie Hand and Nail Cream & Caudalie Vinoperfect Perfecting Day Fluid
I haven’t tried these yet, but skincare products that come in small packages are always a good thing to have handy in your everyday handbag or overnight bag.
Herbline Essentials Natural Skin Lightning For Face and Neck
Because I have super sensitive skin, I am always cautious about trying new things on my face because it often results in redness, peeling or breakouts. I’ve been told by therapists to use only water-based cosmetics so as not to aggravate my skin. The Herbline Essentials Natural Skin Lightning cream is water-based and made of natural ingredients for normal, dry and oily skin types.
