Wish List

Anyone feeling generous? I need the following.. for blogging purposes of course. ;)

Chloe Eau De Parfum for women

Yves Saint Laurent Parisienne Eau De Parfum for women

Yves Saint Laurent Parisienne Shower Gel

Too Faced Absolutely Flawless Concealor
(Available in Hong Kong? Where is Sephora when you need it!)

Kat Von D Tattoo Concealor
(This is supposed to be the God of all concealors! Have to try this somehow. Again, SEPHORA we need you in Hong Kong!)

Revlon Colorburst Lipstick in Fuchsia
(Nice and bright! A good change from red!)

Scrub Scrub SCRUB!

St. Ives Apricot Scrub | Invigorating 
Available at most drugstores, under HK $50  

To start the week, I'd like to recommend this product. To date, this is the best scrub that I've tried, and it works magic. Note: Buy the Invigorating, no matter what your skin condition. The gentle/olive/blemish control ones are just 'variations' to this classic one. This is like a heavy duty skincare product that you need every week. It helps you to get rid of stubborn dirt and gives you a smooth instant finish and softer skin. I love how this product contains actual coarse scrub, so that you feel that you are exfoliating the skin and rubbing the dirt away to fresher looking skin.

Instructions: To be used optimally twice a week, or at least once a week. Take a nut sized amount, and dab a little water onto your face. Apply using your fingers, and scrub in a circular motion till you cover your face like a face mask avoiding eyes and lip area. Leave for 5 minutes and rinse off. You'll instantly feel like a layer of dirt has been removed, and it'll give you a fresh sensation. You can also use it on other body parts to make them smoother, such as knees, elbows or give yourself a scrub during a pedicure. It's definitely multi-purpose. Not recommended for daily use though, as it is heavy duty material and may cause rupture to your skin if used excessively.

Overall, love it! This is a classic item one should have on their shower rack. Suitable for men too!

FANCL White Clear Mask

FANCL White Clear Mask
HK $150 for 3 pieces 

Product Information:
WHITE CLEAR MASK is a preservative-free whitening treatment mask which cares for UV-damaged skin, controls melanin production, prevents freckles and spots.

Ideal for after sun exposure, it has Licorice Derivative to help soothe inflammation and calm the redness of UV-damaged skin.

Made of 100% natural cotton, the mask contains 16ml of rich beauty essence which penetrates deeply into skin to restore moisture and radiance. It is specially designed for Asian faces with whole face coverage including eye lids, for relieving dullness around eye area.

My review: 
 It works! Although it averages to about HK $50 per piece and is quite pricey, it's worth it. When you're really tired, and need that extra something to help you feel and look refreshed, this is definitely it. The mask fits snugly on your face. You need to leave it on for 10 mins, and let your skin soak in the moisture and essence, and you can feel the skin rejuvenation. It works best if the essence is left into your skin overnight, then you can really see the effect of brighter skin in the morning. It will also work where you need to rest and hydrate your skin for a big night out, or for example, between wedding make up quick changes and makeovers. Overall, love it!

FANCL in general is known for their skin care products, and I believe this is their best selling item. Check it out to see if it works for you!

The Body Shop Vitamin-E Sink-In Moisture Mask

The Body Shop | Vitamin-E Sink-In Moisture Mask
HK $219

Love it! Just bought this yesterday, and I'll continue using this every night. It's like a night cream, except it's ten times more hydrating, perfect for dry skin. It's quite a thin layer, but it does the job of rejuvenating your skin really well. All you have to do is rinse your face, dab it dry, and apply this moisture mask. There is no need to wash it off. Let the moisture sink in, and wake up to a fresh face. It smells really good too!

 Out of all the Vitamin-E products that The Body Shop has launched, I believe this could be the best.
