Review: Yadah Oh My Sunblock SPF35 PA++

Who hasn’t heard this before? “Please remember to apply your sunscreen every day, even when it’s cloudy outside.”

When I was in my teens, my mom would nag me, every single day. I was mostly frustrated because I didn’t understand why. I’d go “UGH!! yadah yadah yadah, enough already!” When I was studying in Australia, I didn’t apply sunscreen at all. When it was cold, I’d stand in the sun when I’d usually avoid them like a plague. When I came home, my mom noticed I have developed freckles. Truthfully, I thought it was cute. There were only a few. Little did I know, the freckles got worse. Only then, did I know my mom meant well, but it was too late. The freckles stuck with me until now. So whenever someone asked me if I was interested to write about sunscreens, I’d say yes. Ironically, Yadah shoved its sunscreen in my face. LOL!

A Review Of Clinique Even Better City Block Anti-Pollution SPF40 PA+++

If you have been following this blog for a while, you’ll probably know that I’m a diligent sunscreen user. If you don’t use sunscreen on a daily basis, even if the day is cloudy, then you should. You really should. If premature skin ageing and dark spots are your concerns, the first thing you should do is to protect your skin from these harmful UV rays while treating the particular concern. If you’re using skincare that targets those concerns yet you’re NOT wearing sunscreen, babe, you’re just wasting your money and time. OK. End of nag.

New Player In Town: Riviere D’or Cosmetics. A Review and A Penny For Your Thought?

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.
