Dior’s Diorsnow skincare range is one of those I can always fall back on. I started my Diorsnow journey in my early twenties or late teens, I’m not too sure. I knew nothing about skincare, not that I bothered with it, but my mom was persistent I used a whitening range. Reason being I had itchy fingers, picked on my pimples and there were marks on my face. I was using Vichy Normaderm and Elemis Tri-Enzyme Resurfacing Cleanser when my skin was acting up. Now that it’s calmed down, I went on a whitening skincare range again to clear up my skin from unwanted marks. I was super happy when I was sent these, just when I was going to buy them. Let me share with you now my cleansing routine for the past month.
I know, I know. I’ve wanted to talk about this for months and months but I’ve been putting it off. Apologies for that. There seems to be more and more to talk about, and some things get left behind. It’s not that this isn’t good, but you know… makeup is more exciting. Haha!
This is my longest post yet, so bear with me!
I used to wonder how much better a skincare product would be if the amount spent on advertising, packaging and hiring top notch celebrities and models was actually used on the quality of the skincare itself. When I was approached by an unknown company to test their products, I was initially hesitant. I can’t find any reviews online. In fact, I can’t find much info on the company at all. I did question its credibility, but then even big luxury brands were once a nobody. It takes time to build credibility, and most of all, people who are willing to give it a go.
Ever since I tried Caudalie’s Cleansing Water, I’ve wanted to try Bioderma Sensibio H2O as well. I wanted to know the difference. So when I was in Singapore end of last year and saw these at their pharmacies, I had to grab a few. There is none to be found in this country, so why not, even though it’s quite pricey there? The one with red cap is Sensibio which is suitable for sensitive skin types and the little green one is Sebium, which is for combination / oily skin.
I recently received some Dior Diorsnow skincare products and the first one I want to tell you about is Dior Diorsnow White Reveal Extreme Cooling Gel Mask with Icelandic Glacial Water. The name implies it to be a gel mask, so you might think it’s in a tube where you squeeze some gel out, apply and wash off. It’s not. It’s a sheet mask, but feels like jelly, literally. A soft jelly out of the fridge! Intriguing? Imagine my first impression when I expected nothing of this sort. I was literally wow-ed by it. I don’t use a lot of sheet masks, and this is something totally new to me. I’m still enamoured by it.
