Review: Blanc de La Mer UV Protecting Fluid SPF50 PA+++

We have all heard of La Mer. It is no doubt a luxury brand with the price tag to match. However, you’re not just paying for the brand name. The ever famous Miracle Broth™ is unparalleled and I have friends who swear by it. My first ever luxury skincare purchase was La Mer. I bought the Creme de La Mer before I got married, using a quarter of my paycheck. It was painful but it was worth it. So when I was sent the SPF 50 UV Protecting Fluid, the latest addition to La Mer’s illuminating Blanc de la Mer collection, I was excited to try it.

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.

Guerlain Blanc de Perle Smoothing UV Base Brightening Pearl Perfection SPF30 Works Great As A Primer

It’s a mouthful isn’t it? Guerlain Blanc de Perle Smoothing UV Base Brightening Pearl Perfection SPF30 PA+++. Let’s just shorten it to UV Base. This Guerlain UV Base acts as a sunscreen and a face primer at the same time. I’ve been using this for the past month or so, and here’s what I think.
