Cure Natural Aqua Gel

I get why people love this. This is the kind of cleanser that once you rinse your face, you will be left with a squeaky clean face. But this doesn’t feel ultra dry. It’s like it’s a good squeaky feel. It makes your face feel really clean and renewed. It’s like very refreshing to have a new face. I mean you know like a super clean face. 

They say to use a few pumps, which is true. Cause you need a few on your hands to actually get it to sort of lather up. And it’s also to me quite troublesome. Cause I have to wash my face then dry it before I can apply this. That’s mean I have to remove my make up then wash my face then dry face before I can use this. That’s wasting time. 

Nevertheless, I still like it. Cause my face feels smooth after. It appears brighter too. So ya, maybe it’s my imagination but I will continue to use it. 

What’s In My Shower

They say that 80% of people in Singapore stay in HDB (public housing). My mom’s house is under the old layout which only has 1 bathroom. Basically it is 2. One for shower, the other is the toilet. There are 5 of us trying to use the shower daily. Thankfully, we have different schedule, so we never have to fight for the shower. We also have 4 “shelf” area where we put the shampoo and soap on. And 1 shelf is specially for me. While the rest sort of share shower gel and shampoo, I tend to have my own. The rest of the shelves consist of 1) shampoo (general, bro, sis), shower gel, 2) facial wash (mom, sis, bro), eczema soap, conditioner and 3) shower cap, mini toiletries, etc.

When it comes to my shelf, I have 9 item squeeze into the tiny space. Plus the conditioner which I usually share with my sis therefore it wont be on my shelf. Here are the item I am using at the moment.
1.Shampoo
I am in between shampoos. I am usually either using Avalon Organics thickening shampoo or Naturvital hair loss shampoo. Or maybe some Klorane. So it really depend. 

2. Clarifying shampoo

I’ve been using this Avalon Organics Clarifying Lemon Shampoo for a while, and I really mean a while. I just cant seem to finish this up. I hardly use this as I don’t think this is as good. I try to use this once a week, but will be more if I took a late shower, cause I have no confidence in my oily hair. So this is just good for a day.

3. Hair mask/treatment
I tend to use more hair mask than conditioner. It is much thicker and I don’t have to use as much.

I like this. It’s thick and a little is all you need to make your hair extra smooth. I used it once and after for 3 days straight I don’t use any conditioner. My hair is still very smooth. I was so impressed. In term of strengthening, well I’m not really sure how good it is. But it’s really nice for tangle free hair for days. It’s also not that expensive.

I don’t like the shampoo and conditioner as much. Cause you really have to use a lot of it. But this one is much better.

4. Shower gel

I am not so fussy when it comes to shower gel, but I do love fruity scented shower gel. About 70% of the time, I am using TBS or Sephora. This time I have the mango creamy body wash from Sephora. This smells so much like mango pudding. It’s very creamy and foam up nicely. It doesn’t give crazy foam, but it’s nice on the body. It’s moisturising and doesn’t leave your skin feeling dry. I really like it. 

5. Body scrub

This is the honey body scrub. I just cant get over the scent of TBS honey. its just so sweet and lovely. I really do love most of the scents from TBS and I just cant get over them. Bought this on sale, if not I will prefer to use the squeeze tube one which is for daily use. The tub one is to be used once or twice a week only as it is more abrasive. 

6. Face wash

I’m not sure if I like this. It is quite watery. It has this scent that I can’t describe but it just feels organic and westernise herbal. Yea it doesn’t make sense, but that is that. I am not sure if this is the reason pimple kept popping out. In term of cleansing, this do great. It feels like it strip off moisture, yet it doesn’t leave your skin dry. 

7. Facial scrub

This is TheFaceShop Flebeaute White Crystal Diamond Peeling. It’s not exactly a facial scrub, but I guess you can consider it as one. You can use it on a dry face or a wet one. It is so lovely on the face regardless. It foam up well. So on dry face, you use this in circular motion for about 1 minute, then you rinse it. It feels good on the face. And after you rinse off, your fave just feels super clean. With a wet face, this is less abrasive. But still function he same. 

8. Hygiene wash

I use the travel size one. Especially for the brand Lactacyd, I will buy the 60ml at $2 cause ml by ml comparing to the full size, this is much cheaper. I pretty much tried all the different variants they have, and I like the original best. I am not so choosy on the brand I use. But not everything works well for me. The yellow bottle of Lactacyd is a no for me. 

9. Shaver

I will have a razor in the shower. This will be for my legs. I shave like every 2-3days. This one is the 3 blades one. The refills are not as expensive as the 4 or 5 blades. But I buy them on sale anyway. I know you are suppose to throw away the blade after like a few uses, but I will only throw it away if I feel that it’s no longer sharp. And that is a personal feel. But ya, I prefer guy shaver as they are slightly cheaper. And I use conditioner to lather up, so no problem there. 

So those are the things I usually have in my bathroom. Different brand, but same function. I wish we can have bath tubs in HDB. I want to use Lush bombs so badly. Oh well, we can’t have everything. 

Collagen Moistfull

 
Peeling wash, just another facial cleanser that suppose to remove your dead skin cell. I don’t really like it as I feel that it broke my face. There is just something about it that make me not want to use it. 

Toner, very normal. 

Eye cream, I like it cause it’s small. Pointed tube, so a small amount is disperse each time, which is nice. 

Moisturiser, a bit too thick for me. I don’t think it’s good for oily skin. Collagen do sort of tell you is for mature skin, so it won’t be good for oily. 

Overall, not really a fan. Except the eye cream, cause it’s eye cream. I don’t see anything wrong with it. 

Enfleur Peeling Gel

I wonder if the Korean craze ever die down. Was finding another scrub and was recommended this. It is alright. It is actually a cleanser, but act as a scrub. Those cleanser that is suppose to “peel off”, get rid of dry skin and gives you new one. This is it, just like the famous brand Cure. I wonder if its still selling like hot cakes, there is no news about it anymore. Anyway yea it’s ok to me. I use it, but I don’t have an opinion on it.

Cleanser: foam, gel and scrub

I’ve tried plenty of facial wash, and none seem to suit me as much as my Beautain. It is not the best, but it gives me the best feeling. As long as it feels nice, I got no complain. So I was saying I tried plenty of cleanser or facial wash and this post is going to be a review on those that can be found in my bathroom right now.
