I recently purchased some skincare products, and shall share them here, to give my first impressions and so on.
This week, Clarins at Robinsons had a 20% off [with additional for cardmembers or watever, can't remember] but really great deal, they have this 20% off pretty regularly, so it's always time for me to stock up on my staples and also try out new products.
Have heard pretty good stuff about the Clarins Beauty Flash Balm and my fave YT guru, Lisa Eldridge says it's her fave primer, and she also demonstrated how to use it in THIS VIDEO.
I have only used it once, so I can't tell for sure how amazing it really is.
Retail price: SD$70
The next one is a eye-cream for night use. I am using the EA prevage eyes which contains SPF, so I am not using that for night. It is a rich creamy texture, and a little goes a long way.
Can't remember the retail price, could be about S$80 or $90.
Next, are a couple of Vichy products which I am currently loving. I purchased these at Unity pharmacy because they had a 20% off promotion going on too. I had a hard time resisting getting the entire range of the NormaDerm range [my skin has been cranking up lately] in the end I settled for the
Total Pore Resurfacing Essence [UP S$49.90]
Anti-Imperfection Deep Cleansing Cream [UP S$19.90 or $15.90]
I am loving both products, because the cleanser really foams up well, and cleanses perfectly my face, making it very smooth. It also contains Salicylic acid which is good for bumps and zits.
The total pore resurfacing essence is light, and has a double effect: pore micro-peel and pore refining.
Here is how the pore resurfacing essence looks like:
I feel like it does refine my pores, because this week, I haven't bothered with wearing a primer under my foundation, but my pores aren't that visible. And I am not using any other pore-refining serum because I am using this daily -- so it must be due to this product.
Thanks for looking!
