Review: La Roche Posay Anthelios XL Oil SPF 50+

Summer finally comes to Amsterdam where summer is barely located. When we are rushing to the beach, please don’t forget the summer skincare essential–sunscreen. The product that I am writing today is unbelievably great to be applied all over your body (but not your face!) whether you are chilling on the beach or having fun…

Review: Estee Lauder X Victoria Beckham Illuminator Modern Mercury

This is a delayed post from the exciting Estee Lauder × Victoria Beckham collection. When I heard that the collection is coming back this spring, I couldn’t wait to release this post. Unlike the  java sun bronzer that was a completely new launch by Victoria Beckham (see my review here) ,  the modern mercury illuminator…

Review: Eucerin Hyaluron Filler Serum

Eucerin is one of those not so fancy brands that does not get lots of hype in this day and age. Even among the pharmacy brands, Eucerin is not as well known as La Roche Posay or Avene. Nevertheless, they have been on the market for more than 100 years. During last year, I started to…

Review: The Ordinary. Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5

The ordinary range (under the deciem umbrella brand) is generating lots of buzz ever since it is launched. The purpose of the ordinary range is to offer scientifically proven skincare ingredient at an unbelievably budget-friendly price (between 5-15 euros per bottle), which makes the range truly unordinary! I have recently reviewed the fantastic rose seed hip…

Review:  Eucerin Oil control Sun Gel-Creme SPF 30

Everyone wants their skin perky, firm, winkle-free and always look like a 20 year old. Make-ups can help you hide your pigmentation, but they can hardly hide any wrinkles. One skin care product that can help you in this regard and you need it everyday is sunscreen. I know that lots of people hate sunscreen…

Shoes: Toga Pulla Ankle Boots

    Some girls who love shoes only wear high heels. Some only wear flats. I see the beauty of both so I spent more money on shoes :-0. Every shoe brand has a unique feature. Toga pulla is renowned for their silver buckles and silver-tone logo plaque. My recent adoption is a flat western style…

Review: L’Oreal Superliner Perfect Slim Black Intense

This post is about my staple makeup product– liquid eyeliner. As a Chinese girl who has inner double-folded eyelid, I am always struggling to find an eyeliner that can stay there the whole day. Why? Because my eyelid is always in friction with the eyeliner, which makes almost no eyeliner to stay put. Does this eyeliner…

Some who have never used it, resent the very idea of balm-type cleanser. I used to fall into the latter category. Because my combination skin is…
