I’ve been wanting to tell you about this cleansing balm. This is one that I save for once a week. It is a luxury product for sure, and that makes it all the more special. I use it before the mask which I absolutely love, and this weekly ritual is like spa at home.
You must have read about Antipodes on this blog. I first discovered it about 2 years ago, and I have been slowly trying their products. I was looking for a more affordable eye cream and this one fits the bill. Then, there was some major promotion on cleansers and toners (60% off with purchase) so I grabbed that too. Oh, and I heard avocado is a good ingredient in creams, and I got a night cream. I know, it was one after another. I bought all these when I first knew I was pregnant. I wanted to switch to something more organic for no specific reason. I don’t believe skincare must be different during pregnancy if there are no changes to your skin. My skin did become more sensitive, hence, the switch. I noticed my skin has become drier lately, so I know I’ll be changing my routine again. So, I believe skincare should only be changed according to your skin condition, not because whether or not you’re pregnant. So here, I’ll be doing brief reviews on each product which I’ve been using for the past 4 to 5 months.
Today I will bring you a review of 2 of the products in the Pai Cleanse and Tone Starter Kit. They are Pai Rice Plant & Rosemary Bioaffinity Tonic and Pai Camellia & Rose Gentle Hydrating Cleansing Cream. I bought the kit directly from the website <click here for the link, I am not affiliated> and there was an offer that time where I’d get a complimentary full sized eye cream! Bonus, I thought. I upsized my cleanser to 200ml so for the kit, and for USD$156, I get:
- Pai Camellia & Rose Gentle Hydrating Cleansing Cream 200ml
- Pai Rice Plant & Rosemary Bioaffinity Tonic 50ml
- Exfoliating Muslin Face Cloth
- Geranium & Thistle Combination Skin Cream (50ml)
- Echium & Argan Soothing Eye Cream (15ml)
I was recently sent 3 of these foaming facial wash by Hada Labo. One is “Moisturizing & Whitening”, another is for “Deep Clean & Blemish Control” and the last one is “Deep Clean & Pore Refining”. When it comes to cleansers, I like using a foam to follow my cream or balm makeup remover. I have normal combination skin, so foams don’t usually dry out my face.
I’ve been using this Estee Lauder Nutritious Cleanser (RM115) for a few months now, and you know what? I love it! If you’re looking for a foam cleanser that cleans your face without leaving your skin dry, this is it. Here’s just a very short write up on it, because hey, how much can I write about a foam cleanser?
