Review: January Skincare Empties

For January skincare empties, we have a cleansing oil that contains the newest exfoliant on the block ‘PHA’, a soothing essence that everyone and their grandma swears by, and a sun stick with SPF 50+ that makes the reapplication life easier. Let’s go! Hanskin Cleansing Oil & Blackhead (PHA) Since last year, there’s been increased awareness on the benefits of…

Azelaic Acid 20% Ezanic gel Review

Having experienced the benefits of Azelaic Acid in a product with an inelegant formula, I went hunting for more products with this amazing ingredient. Of course, I was delighted to find another that was easily accessible and didn’t cost a kidney. I’ve been using the Ezanic Azelaic Acid gel for about 8 weeks, and here is my detailed review of…

Skincare Empties: September Edition

This post will be featuring three glow keepers; my all-time favorite sunscreen so far (yep I’ve tried a couple), a vitamin-rich brightening moisturizer, and a super affordable exfoliant for oily and/or acne-prone skin types.

Review: Stridex Pads Maximum Strength

Today’s post is all about Stridex Pads Maximum Strength  Prior to this red jar, I’d never tried any 2% salicylic acid treatment. Sick right? For someone with oily, acne-prone skin? 😳 I must have been living under the rock. JK, Glycolic & Azelaic acid were doing it for me. Not until some months back in Lockdown, 2020 when I was on…

Review: Wishtrend 2% Acid-Duo Mild Gel Cleanser

Low-strength PHA & BHA? Low pH? Soap-free? SLS free? Essential oil-free? Sign me up, please! One of the key methods to achieve clear skin is through regular but gentle exfoliation. Keyword: gentle! The first time the thought of incorporating an exfoliating cleanser occurred to me was when I came across one of my fave aesthetician’s skincare routine. He mentioned a…

In this post, we’ll be reviewing 4 skincare products (a cleanser, serum, and moisturizer), including a makeup item. Yup, you read that right! Let’s jump in already. CosRx…

So, I ask him questions to learn more about this drug, look it up on my Medscape app and soon realize that it’s a topical treatment for acne vulgaris (fancy term for acne).…
