3 Japanese Sunscreens Tried and Tested

Sponsored

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?

C/o Datumou Recipe, an online site dedicated to testing Japanese cosmetics and beauty services, I got to try out 3 popular Japanese sunscreens from their curated list of top 12.

Drunk Elephant Slaai™ Makeup-melting Butter Cleanser

Cleansing is a vital step to anyone’s skincare routine. It is particularly important for a daily makeup user like me. After a full day at work, I’m always excited to go home and indulge in some pampering. This includes spending some time on my skincare routine. Now in my mid-twenties (omg how time flies!!!), I pay extra attention on the products I use on my skin.

Relieve sensitive skin with Dr. Andrew Weil for Origins™ Mega-Mushroom Relief & Resilience Hydra Burst Gel Lotion: Review

“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!

Back to the basics for hydrated and radiant skin with InstaNatural: Review

InstaNatural

Sponsored by iHerb

Being in an urban jungle in this tropical climate, we often face a host of skin aggressors such as pollution and stress. We tend to pile up our skincare to counter the detrimental effects of these problems but sometimes, it’s all about going back to the basics.

Going back to the basics means focusing on simple yet effective solutions. Every month, I get a skin outbreak due to hormonal changes and what I like to do is to cut down the number of skincare products in my regime to not over-complicate things.

InstaNatural, a brand that focuses on clean and accessible skincare, has been helping me achieve hydrated and radiant skin during times like these. If you want to go natural, go InstaNatural (c/o iHerb)!
