Finish 5 by September | What I Used Up, What I Didn’t

Aloha!

About two months ago, I launched a challenge called the Finish 5 wherein I targeted to empty out five items from my skincare and makeup stash. As someone who has never (and I really mean never) finished anything beauty related plus my hoarding tendencies (beauty-related or not), this was something that I strived to be really conscious of on a daily basis.

I’m super excited to show you my trash my progress (sort of), so hop on in!

My Current Skincare Routine

Never in a million years would I think that this lady would be slightly addicted to skin care. I used to be that girl who never had a single zit but also never had a daily/nightly regimen. My siblings call me lucky, but I guess time (and lack of care) has caught up with me. My main skin problems now are large pores, oily skin, eye bags, and uneven skin tone. And here’s my attempt at combating them.

My Favourite Things | July 2016

My Favourite Things is a blog link-up by Eireen and Raisa about well, our favourite things. It can be anything — a book, makeup stuff, food, places, gadgets, website, people — and it can be as few or as many as you’d like.

I know, I know, I know, it took me seven months before I remembered to blog my second of this series! To be honest, I didn’t think I had favourites last month, mainly because I got so busy that I couldn’t pay attention to stuff like these. But then I realized, because I didn’t have much time on my hands, I stuck to the things that I like the best.

Without further ado, here are the things that I July-ke the best (#SryNotSry for the pun).

Two Cents: Etude House Sunprise Natural Corrector SPF50+ PA+++

The product name’s a mouthful, I know!

Lately, I’ve been on the lookout for one of the most basic daily skin care — sun screen. Now, I have professed my love for Biore UV Perfect Face Milk SPF50+ PA+++ in my January Favourites, but three bottles in, I realized that it has a strong alcohol smell. It’s quite off-putting for someone who’s a bit sensitive to smells. I’m not sure if they changed the formula, but I decided to explore some other options.

Makeup Stash: Bobbi Brown BB Cream SPF 35

image
Makeup Stash is a beauty tag series that attempts to review various makeup items via full makeup routine demonstration and swatches.

When I first started on makeup, I obviously had no idea on what brands are good for me. My initial instinct was to try on brands that are known, which sometimes also equivalents to being a bit pricey. Which I know, I know, is not a very practical move. But this Bobbi Brown BB Cream with SPF 35 somehow redeems my flunky theory.
