If you have dehydrated but acne-prone skin, you need these: Tatcha Water Cream & The Deep Cleanse

I am finally concluding my coverage of skin hydrating products!  Today’s post is a sort of psychological wrapper for me because it features the earliest product that I acquired before making up my mind to create a series, and the most recent acquisition which is technically not marketed for dry skin but works like a charm.  This pairing works best for those of you who have acne-prone skin like me, but whose skin is also dehydrated and hence cannot accommodate overly stripping products.  The balance is delicate, and Tatcha does it so elegantly with its The Deep Cleanse and Water Cream.

Drench your skin in a cloud… Peter Thomas Roth Water Drench Cloud Cream

Happy hump-day!  This supposed mini-series on hydrating skincare seems to be taking forever to complete… I started this series 2 weeks ago [here] with the intention of wrapping it up within a week, but work and life got in the way.  There are just a couple more to go, and today I’d like to introduce a trio poetically named – Peter Thomas Roth Water Drench Collection.

Empties Vol. 5: Life Updates & Beauty Stories

The first quarter of the year is over in a blink, and now we are accelerating right into summer.  2018 has been a very productive start for me in many aspects of my life, though the ride has been bumpy with several members of my family falling severely ill.  Nonetheless many seeds that were sowed last year are starting to germinate and take hold, so I’m looking forward to a fruitful harvest.  On the beauty side of things, many of the brands that were once so elusive are now launching in Singapore – be sure to follow me on Instagram [@silverkis] to catch my stories on the latest launch parties!  Not everything shiny and new are the best though, I discovered several HG products that I am going to share with you today.

Estee Lauder Ultimate Lift Regenerating Youth Collection

Luxurious anti-aging skincare is one of my favourite things in beauty, and was what spurred me to start blogging years ago. There are lots of brands out there that position themselves as the purveyors of the finest, and there are brands that just do extremely well across the grain. Estée Lauder often gets overlooked precisely because it seems so mainstream, but I was recently blown by how amazing and luxurious their top-of-the-line offerings can be. Inspired by the magic and power of nature’s dew, and harnessing the powers of exotic florals, Estée Lauder presents us with the Re-Nutriv Ultimate Lift Regenerating Youth Collection.

Kanebo’s latest skincare range reverses the signs of aging

Kanebo completely revamped its product line last year, including both makeup and skincare.  The entire brand philosophy now revolves around the concept of Chrono Beauty, changing rhythm of the body and skin at different times of the day and year.  By understanding how the skin condition has evolved, Kanebo believes we can reduce the signs of aging and mature gracefully by taking proper care accordingly.  The skincare range is rather extensive, but today, I’d like to give you a peek at a few specialized items that were recently launched to address concerns of sagging and wrinkling.
