Staying at home means more time to pamper my skin. I’m back with yet another review of a clean skincare brand, and this time it’s – SEPHORA Collection! I’ve previously talked about how my skin felt clear and healthy with Derma E’s clean skincare range, you can check that out too.
Anyway, SEPHORA launched its Good Skincare line under their home brand SEPHORA Collection late last year. We’re all about clean formula nowadays and this range comes in timely to match our needs.
About SEPHORA Collection Good Skincare
The Good Skincare range focuses on the best possible balance between product quality, effectiveness, and sensory appeal:
“Clean Beauty” made waves in the beauty industry not too long ago, and the beauty market hence exploded. My sentiments tell me that this trend will be even bigger as we place emphasis on the ingredients and the impact we make on the environment. I’ve recently tried Derma E, a proven clean beauty brand from the U.S. and I’m really loving it!
C/o iHerb, I shopped Derma E over at the iHerb website that carries over 30,000 natural products and ships to over 150 countries. If you didn’t know, iHerb orders are shipped from climate-controlled distribution centers to ensure quality of their products. Customer service is also provided 24 hours a day, 7 days a week in 10 different languages! Hence, you don’t have to worry about anything shopping on iHerb!
Hydrate and moisturise – what’s the difference? Well, the Drunk Elephant F-Balm™ Electrolyte Waterfacial shows you what it means to do both! I’ve been using the F-Balm™ ever since I laid my hands on it, for about 2 weeks now. Being in air-conditioned environments most of the time dries out my skin big time. Ever since I’ve started using the F-Balm™, I find that my skin feels less dry and looks much healthier too!
About Drunk Elephant
If you’re new to the brand, Drunk Elephant (DE) is a “Clean Compatible” skincare brand founded by Tiffany Masterson while combating her skin issues. The products are made in the U.S. and do not contain the “Suspicious 6” (Essential Oils, Drying Alcohols, Silicones, Chemical Sunscreens, Fragrances/Dyes, SLS). DE’s focus is about biocompatibility, pH levels, safety, continuously making sure that active ingredients are at efficacious levels. The skincare line also seeks to remain respectful and always supportive of our skin’s acid mantle.
Fun fact! Drunk Elephant derived its name from a myth that says elephants get drunk when they eat the fruit that has fallen from Marula trees!
Applying sunscreen is a vital step to our skincare routine, especially in Singapore’s hot tropical climate. There are tons of sunscreens out in the market, which make us spoilt for choice. Being Asian, should we select Western brands or continue to trust Asian brands? What about cost vs. effectiveness? Does it mean expensive sunscreens perform the best?
“Sensitive” is what most ladies will describe their skin, but is it really sensitive? Sometimes, it’s not that our skin is sensitive, but the products we use or the excessive exposure to skin-damaging environmental factors that exacerbate our skin conditions. Dry climates can also cause our skin to react too. In any case, if you’re fretting over how to calm your (sensitive) skin, the Dr. Andrew Weil for Origins™ skincare range is your answer!
Not too long ago, Origins released a gel-to-water moisturiser to complement the range – the Hydra Burst Gel Lotion. It was love at first touch! I’ve been using this as the last step of my skincare regime and I LOVE IT!
