This trove has got you covered!! Cleaner, toner, moisturizer, sun block!

Chia seed has grown popularity among ladies! Not only it’s good as a food (rich in omega 3 fatty acids!) it’s also good for our skin too! If you didn’t know it helps to retain moisture! Moisture is very important to our skin/body!

When our skin have enough moisture, it will not generate excess sebum causing our skin to be oily and that’s clean and clear~! (That’s my understand!)


When you’ve got your face covered, you need to pamper your body too! Body wash and body lotion from Etude House!

This series is formulated with milk protein, ivy extract and the petit bijou fragrance to soften and relieve stressed skin! Smells good and like baby powder! It’s also good to know that the formula is free of sulphates, parabens and ethanol..


Clinique’s top selling moisturizer, Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief, is lightweight cream-gel plumps skin with 24-hour hydration.. Importantly, it’s suitable for all skin type!


The Brighten My Day All-Over Skin Perfecting Brightening And Hydrating Emulsion features a lightweight and oil-free formula that makes sure skin feel fresh and well-moisturised. It is also designed to refine and tighten pores while reducing the appearance of dark spots and redness.


Korean beauty brand CNP Laboratory’s new Invisible Peeling Booster is a leave-on formula that gently exfoliates skin and keeps it smooth and hydrated.

Exfoliating is an important part of our skincare routine! it’s only when u exfoliate, dead skin cells will be gone and your skin will look brighter and absorb nutrients better! You know what, don’t be lazy!


Illamasqua Matte Veil is the matte version of Hydra veil. I had used hyrda veil before and find it not too bad.. For matte lover, I’m sure you’ll love this!

An oil control primer, Matte Veil preps the skin to create the perfect matte base for make-up application. It’s mattifying cream-gel formula absorbs excess oil whilst retaining the skin`s natural moisture levels, providing a silky, soft finish. Enhancing make-up longevity, Matte Veil also controls shine throughout the day and into the evening, keeping skin feeling healthy and balanced..


Last but not least, one of my favourite makeup remover!

Hydrabio H2O is the 1st and only dermatological micellar water perfectly compatible with the skin. Its fatty acid esters, the constituent elements of micelles, are similar to the phospholipids of the skin cell membranes and naturally help rebuild the skin’s hydrolipidic film. Thus, Hydrabio H2O guarantees unrivalled tolerance and comfort for optimum make-up removing efficacy. Moreover, its Aquagenium® exclusive biological patent retrains the skin to activate its natural moisturising capacities by stimulating the production of aquaporins, water channels in the skin, and retain the water it needs to be balanced.

Esemtan Skin Balm

After trying esemtan wash lotion, I got pretty excited on this too – skin balm!

If you haven’t read about the wash lotion, I think you should.. click HERE!



Esemtan skin balm provides the skin with oil and moisture. Suitable for daily hand and body care for all skin types, it permeates deeply into the skin with oil-in water emulsion, and supports and cares for the skin to protect it from drying.

It is also suitable for children’s skin. It also contains added urea as a moisturising agent and also to speed up skin cell renewal. It is also dermatologically tested and helps to reduce skin irritation and itch. Besides that, Esemtan skin balm also comes with mild soothing fragrance, to allow users with dry & sensitive skin to enjoy a soothing touch of fragrance.

This may not be the best looking nor most appealing “moisturizer” but it’s one of those that works miracle! It had moisturized my hands greatly & I do mean GREATLY! I had a pair of old lady hand after I returned from Australia (it’s winter there)! Dry skin, harden cuticles – eew! After using for about 3-5 days, my fingers looks so much better!

Skin balm doesn’t get absorb as quickly as gel moisturizer but ths moisturizing effect seems double! Probably because it has oil in it that’s why moisture gets lock within the skin! And where can you actually get a skin balm that’s suitable for sensitive skin and has mild fragrance, plus suitable for all ages!!?

Skin Balm is also available Guardian, Unity, Watsons, Independent pharmacy (Pink beauty, Beauty essential), BHG for $20/500ml!

When I first pump Daily Moisture onto my hand, I thought is was a lil too thick for my liking – eew. However, since it’s my responsibility to use it and give my honest review, I think I should still use it and share what I thought about it.. Who knows, maybe I’ll like it??

IMG_2020 IMG_2021

One pump gives you the amount on the top right image. More than enough for one hand! … but I guess that not much of an issue.. -___-

IMG_2064 IMG_2065

Indeed, not very long after I tried, I kinda change my mind.. I like the texture.. It’s actually quite gel-like and it’s easy to apply too! Although it still feels slightly thicker than other moisturiser, it can still get absorb pretty well!

Massage in circular motion and I don’t even 5 minutes, my skin had absorb the moisturiser and smelling all GOOD! (Maybe they’re thirsty? YA RIGHT! *roll eye*)

IMG_1971 IMG_1972

It smells really good! Like perfume yet soothing! Applying this at night makes me sleep well too..!


And one thing I’m not sure if you had noticed.. When I apply moisturiser to bed, usually the next day when I take a shower, my skin feels soapy and oily when it touches water.. I need to scrub so hard to make this feeling gone. I just don’t like this soapy feeling..

However, when using Jergens, my skin doesn’t feels soapy or oily!!! Does that means my moisturiser are FULLY TOTALLY absorbed?? WOW.. Super thumbs up for this man!!

Last but not least, is my skin really smoother?


(yesssh!) *nods nods* My secret to smoother skin? …Jergens!


LOL.. so wayang…! But hey, it does feels smoother ok! Just not visibly smooth yet..

If you’re interested to grab your Jergens too, head down to your nearest leading supermarket, western pharmacies and/or personal care stores now! It’s retailing at S$8.90 for 400ml! Cheap and good right!? Don’t say I no share uh..
