Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm: Better late than never


I think I am probably the last person to dip my finger in a cleansing balm pot.
My skin is combination towards oily. My ideal cleanser is a gel or foam that would give me that refresh feeling. So an oil based cleanser is on the other end of the spectrum which I would never thought of touching. However, during the transition of seasons recently, my skin has turned a bit dry and dehydrated! Who would have thought?? It was a new sensation to me, and I was like “help! What’s going on?!” Then I accidentally saw the Emma Hardie Amazing Face Moringa Cleansing Balm and the voice in my head just went “Yes!! This is what I need!”  So I bought it.

Marc Jacobs Beauty Counter has come to London!


No, you didn't read my title wrong. Marc Jacobs Beauty Counter has secretly come to the capital! It is the counter, the actual COUNTER that you can touch and try out the products! I cannot believe no one has mentioned it!!!

Soap & Glory Make Yourself Youthful Sunshield Superfluid SPF 50


The sun is finally shining upon us! Yay!!!
While we are enjoying the sunshine, wearing a good sunscreen is very important. It protects our skin from the damaging UV ray, which helps preventing aging and skin cancer. So today I have a great sunscreen for face to share. With Lily Pebble’s recommendation, I discovered Soap & Glory’s Make Yourself Youthful Sunshield Superfluid SPF 50+, and it is PERFECT!

Current Makeup Staples #2


It’s Current Staples time again! (Check out my previous Current Makeup Staples post -> here).
If you are new to my blog or to this series, let me explain - My makeup routine doesn’t change that much. If I like a product, I could use the same thing straight for 2 or 3 months, despite I have enough makeup to supply a village! So in F&B here, I don’t do Monthly Favourites (because it will be the same thing every month), instead I do Current Staples every 3 months or so to share what I have been using. If I reach for the same product(s) for 3 months straight, I know (and you know) it’s a good one!!

So let’s get started!

GlamGlow Supermud Mask : The Ultimate Hoover for Skin


As the weather gets warmer, I switch to lighter foundation products. Lighter products means lighter coverage. I want my skin to look great naturally in order to suit the light coverage products. I have combination to oily skin, so my biggest skin concern is cleaning, making sure my pores are as clean as possible. When I got a small sample tube of GlamGlow YouthMud mask from my Sephora order (see what else I bought from Sephora online here), I was so impressed by how strong the Mud Mask was (very tingly), that I looked on SpaceNK and saw GlamGlow Supermud Mask claimed it would clear black heads, white heads, blemishes etc!! It sounds exactly what I need!!
