Last year, Origins introduced a novel new range of products targeting matured skin that has lapsed into a sleeping state of senescence and is no longer functioning optimally. And now, to complement the Three Part Harmony range (first introduced here), Origins has added 2 new products – a luxurious Foaming Cream-to-Oil Cleanser and a new Soft Cream. I actually took both of them with me on my 2-week long trip to Germany last January in the midst of winter, and have also tested them again back home in tropical Singapore… and I’d love to share them with you today!

Happy New Year my friends! I hope the holiday season had been fruitful and rewarding for you. I’m really looking forward to 2017, and it is my sincerest wish for you to enjoy abundant blessings in the coming days – may your hearts be full, and your lives be filled with your hearts’ desires!
The new year marks a fresh start, and this year I’m hoping to take a new approach with my skincare. Last year, I battled with the onset of adult acne, and after several frustrated attempts to get things under control myself, I finally decided to engage professional help. Following the advice of Dr Gerard Ee at The Clifford Clinic, I decided to cut back on all the products that I was loading my skin with. More isn’t always better! Instead, I am now on a minimalist routine, with an emphasis on oil-free, simply-formulated products with maximum efficiency. And I am finally at a place where I am comfortable enough to declare my skin is better than ever! Of course, I still encounter the occasional woe, and for whatever ails that strike, I add on targeted solutions such as the new Bobbi Brown Remedies Collection.

Beauty you’re It! IT Cosmetics has earned a cult-like following in the US over the past few years; and with the aim of helping women with rosacea and other skin problems achieve beautiful, healthy skin… IT Cosmetics seems like the perfect soulmate for me. When I heard that IT Cosmetics will be launching at Sephora internationally, I knew this brand was going to fly, and if you hadn’t already picked some up for yourself, here is a quick run-down of some of their top sellers!

I always get insanely excited when I get to check out new La Mer releases, and this month there are not just 1 but 2 new products to discover! It feels a little bit back to basics perhaps, but I think we all need a bit of #skincare recharge before moving into the fall and winter seasons. Expanding on its significant facial cleansing range of products, La Mer now introduces the La Mer Cleansing Micellar Water. And the brand’s beloved range of moisturizers is seeing a reformulation… with the new La Mer Moisturizing Soft Lotion.

It is getting a little difficult for me to review skincare these days because my skin has been somewhat unstable for the past few months, and I keep waking up to fresh pimples no matter what I’m doing. It started around the time I received this set of products, and I put it aside in the hopes of giving it a 2nd trial, but my breakouts never stopped and now I’m not entirely sure if it was this that triggered it off to begin with. But instead of postponing things further, I thought I’d introduce this new range of whitening skincare from Albion today and let you decide for yourself.
