2018 has been a challenging year on multiple fronts, but it has also been liberating in a way as I learnt to hold less tightly onto immaterial things. Particularly, I no longer feel the compulsive need to review each and everything that comes my way, at the expense of my own personal life. Regardless, the year cannot end without me giving due homage to a handful of new releases from Guerlain Orchidee Imperiale that I’ve truly enjoyed.

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.

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.

It’s been an amazing year in many ways, and I hope you’ve enjoyed all the product reviews or introductions here on the blog. Reality is, it takes much more time to write a skincare/bodycare/haircare review than makeup. On the other hand, I think it is far easier to get through those products, and so I’ve taken to documenting my empties to better speak to my fondness of some of these stuff that never makes it to the blog. There are way too many to go into detail here, so please feel free to ask any questions in the comments section below!

There are very few brands out there that is as consistent and luxurious in every way as La Mer. The ultimate epitomy of the brand’s offering is the Genaissance de La Mer line. And now, La Mer expands the exquisite offering with 2 new products – The Infused Lotion and The Eye and Expression Cream.

I love trying out luxury skincare as much as the next person on the street, even more so when it is antiaging and carries wafts of fragrant ginseng. Sulwhasoo’s latest addition to its Concentrated Ginseng Renewing line has captivated me, and I think I need a backup already!
