THANK YOU, NEXT … BEAUTY PRODUCTS I’VE TRIED & DISLIKE

Not every beauty products that I’ve personally purchased and tried actually made it here. Especially those that just didn’t work on me, or I simply didn’t get the hype.

But, please note that everyone is different. So what might not work for me, might work for you. I’m just going to write down the format, not that I dislike the brand and their specific products per se.

EYEGLOSS

Thanks to my oily eyelids and humid weather here in Jakarta where I live, this format of eye color didn’t seem to work on me.

EXFOLIATING PAD

No. Just no. Don’t get me wrong. I do exfoliate daily. But, just not with these kind. I didn’t enjoy using this thick wet paper that felt rough on skin.

TONER MIST

I guess I’m an old soul. I prefer my toner to be poured on a piece of cotton pads.

WHITE FINISHING POWDER

I know some claimed to give flawless finish, but I just prefer face powder that have the same shade as my skin tone.

CUSHION

I believe cushion will work and look better on dry skin on drier and colder climates.  That’s all.

CLEANSING OIL

Thanks to my fungal acne prone skin, it is very hard to find cleansing oil that safe. So, this is a pass (unfortunately, because I actually love how it cleansed well for heavy makeup wearer like me).

SHEET MASK

For those who enjoy wearing them, lucky you. As much as I want to like them, I just don’t like their gooey textures. I prefer compressed sheet mask mixed with my own hydrating toner.

MY 1st SKINCARE HAUL IN 2019

Happy New Year, folks! This will be my first short blog post in 2019, so here we go…

If you follow my IG, you’ll know that I just got back from year-end family holiday in Hong Kong. Other than lots of culinary adventures, trip to drugstores are a must for me, too. Mind me, this is not a review post, just want to share what my haul are from the trip, including some transit haul (I just love Changi Airport-especially Watsons in T3 for fast shopping). Enjoy!
