Being an ardent fan of self-foaming cleansers, the Biore Marshmallow Whip Facial Foam has been on my to-use list for the longest time since it launched last year. I was given a bottle by my dear friend who knows of my love, and I finally managed to work it into my daily routine!

Living in sunny Singapore, sunscreen is a must for me everyday, even if I’m just lounging around the house, unless I’m doing so in complete darkness, which is never..

Random Weekend Watsons Haul

I love popping into Watsons now and then as they seem to be launching new stuff pretty regularly nowadays. I haven’t been to the huge one at Taka in a while now, and I needed to pick up a travel pack of makeup removing wipes, which was my excuse for the day.. lol..

And as usual, my search for the biore makeup removing wipes led me to discover something new and exciting (at least to me) and I left Watsons with my wallet lighter than expected..

I was pleasantly surprised to see an entire display of Kracie Naive products! If you follow me on twitter, you would have seen the twitpics I posted of the display. Not sure how long it’s been around, but it’s the first time I’ve seen Kracie Naive in town, so I was really excited!

i’d picked up the Karcie Naive Peach Deep Cleansing Foam earlier this year from Japan, and enjoyed using it for days when I’m wearing light makeup, as it also doubles as a makeup remover cleansing foam. Having had a great prior experience, I couldn’t resist picking up 2 more items – Make Up Cleansing Sheets (50pcs) and Cleansing Lotion. Not forgetting the Biore Cleansing Oil Makeup Remover Sheets I’d originally stepped in to get.

And in true random fashion, I picked up the cute little Japanese girl glass nail file while waiting to pay. It only costs S$1.95! Too cute to resist.. These random jaunts into Watsons is becoming expensive.. lol..

It’s been a really long time since I did a Product of the Week (POTW)!! No, I haven’t been slacking in my weekly rotations, just slacking in posting about them.. lol.. Finally after a long break, I’m going to give some quick thoughts on some products I used the whole of last week.

First up – Biore UV Bright Face Milk is one of my go-to sunscreen. It is fuss-free, affordable, and has the highest SPF/PA value I know of. I heard it from some show before that companies are technically only allowed to record SPF values of up to 50 and PA up to 3 +, so everything that claims to be beyond that is pretty much unproven.. Not sure how true this is, but SPF50 and PA+++ sounds like it’s got me covered.. lol.. This pink version is for radiance, hence called the bright face milk. I like how it dries into a matte finish, without any stickiness that sunscreen is prone to, especially with such a high SPF/PA value. The texture is really liquidy, and easy to spread over my face, which is another plus as it feels lightweight. This can double up as a makeup base, and I find the oil control pretty decent for a sunscreen/makeup base. I don’t really see much help with the radiance when using this, but this is just sunscreen, so I’m not too bothered.

Next is MUFE HD Primer in shade 0 (Neutral), which I got from an aussie seller for a great price. One thing I love about this primer is the texture. It is lightweight and feels like a moisturiser instead of a primer. It leaves my skin feeling smooth and though Neutral is clear and doesn’t have any colour correcting effect, it feels really silky, without feeling like I have a mask on. It also does help my makeup stay in place for a much longer time. Whenever i use this primer, my foundation/BB stays on all day till I get home at night!

Last but not least is Beauty DIY’s Calendura & Licorice Perfect Soothing BB Cream. I got this from the Taiwan payeasy website in a spree, and I find it a very frills-free BB Cream, actually very good for beginners or those who don’t need their BB Creams to perform too many miracles. This doesn’t come with SPF, so I usually pair it up with either sunscreen or a primer/base that comes with sunscreen. The shade is a pretty good match for me, about NC25-30ish, and the coverage is light-medium. The finish is quite natural, which is always a plus point as I don’t want to come across as wearing too much makeup. Oil control and texture is both average, nothing spectacularly good or bad. Its probably one of the most average BBs I own, nothing to rave about, but nothing to complain about.

I hope you guys don’t mind just these quick thoughts, I find this way easier than writing individual posts about these products, as I’d probably become too lazy to do those and they’d never get written.. lol.. this way you guys get to read my views on a few products right after I’ve used them for at least a week. =)

Biore Hydra Clear Makeup Remover

I picked this up over the weekend at John Little, which was still having its 20% storewide sale. For some strange reason, some of it on the shelve was labelled $18.50 while the rest was labelled $22.90. I wasn’t sure if it was a labelling error since I couldn’t see any difference at all, not even the manufacturing date. So of course I grabbed myself one of the $18.50s and went to the cashier. Retail at other stores like Watsons is also $22.90 I believe, so $18.50 with 20% off is a great deal in my book.

I’ve been using the Biore Cleansing Oil for some time now, and it is my go-to cleansing oil. But if I can do without the oily feeling and achieve the same clean results with a water based remover, why not?

It basically works the same way as the cleansing oil, without the oily feeling. I pour a small amount onto my palms and apply it all over my dry face and gently massage until my makeup dissolves away. Then I rinse with lukewarm water. The main difference I found between this and the cleansing oil is that after rinsing this away, there is no residual oily feeling, which I had when using the cleansing oil. When using the cleansing oil, I normally have to wash my face with facial foam right after to really feel clean, but this feels very light and after rinsing, my face feels clean enough, though I still end up using facial foam while in the shower.

Overall, I prefer this over the cleansing oil, and it’s probably a better product for those with oily skin who can’t bear to add anymore oil to their face. The cleansing capabilities are good too, as my face feels nice and clean  after just one rinse. I’m glad I picked this up at a discount as $14.70 is a great price for 200ml.
