Garnier Moisture Matte Daily Oil-Free Moisturiser

The moisturiser is below $10, but I feel that this break me out. To say that it’s a matte moisturiser, I don’t think this is one. I like the texture, and the price is actually good. But it just doesn’t suit me. 


Trilogy Vital Moisturising Cream

This is a thick moisturiser. It’s more for anyone with dry skin. I only managed to use it with heavy mattifying products over it. I find that it’s alright as long as I don’t stay directly under the sun. If not, the heat tend to melt everything away making my face super oily. This will not be my choice of moisturizer, but I find that this is all I have at home. In the end, it’s alright as I just have to use a little at a time. 

caolion Pore Sebum Control Moisture Stick

I am just a sucker for this kind of product. I always seem to buy them but I never really did like any. I like them enough but they’re just redundant. This moisture stick is tiny and cute. It’s suppose to act as a primer to control oil and cover pores. But it can be used before or after makeup. I mean it’s really a moisture stick. They said if your face gets oily, maybe you just lack moisture. Anyway, when my face especially around my nose gets oily, this does work at removing the oil. The sides of my face looks rather dry; this will comes to the rescue. It’s multipurpose. 

I like that it’s cooling upon application. I like that it’s a stick form that’s quite small. Application on the go is possible. I bought it at Sephora for $16. But I wouldn’t repurchase this. 

By Terry Cellularose Liftessence Skin Care Samples

This is a 3 set samples. So each satchet is about 2ml. Small, but I find that a little is all you need. The scent is quite nice. Just a tiny hint of rose. It’s just very pleasant to use. I like it. Anyway, this is targeted for dry to normal skin. So it’s more suited to mature skin too as it targets anti aging, focus on lifting and firming. But I just like trying out things. And By Terry is quite an expensive brand in the market. So I just had to.

1. is the serum, an intense recovering concentrate. It’s a really nice gel serum. I really like the texture of this. It feels really nice. And just reminds me of watermelon. Not sure why. After all it’s a sheer purple pink gel. Oh, the scent kind of reminds me of Fresh, but it has that typical high end cream after scent mix in it. It takes a while to sink in. But after about 15 seconds, my skins feel quite smooth. It feels hydrated and even though I know it will get oily in a few hours time. 

2. Integral restructuring day cream. As it states as day cream, I only try this in the day. Doesn’t states that it has SPF or something. I just wouldn’t know. The cream is very thick. This will be really good for anyone with dry skin. It’s just so rich. Even though it’s thick, it’s easy to glide across the skin. It feels good on my skin, even though it feels so wrong. I know my skin will get oily maybe in a couple of hours with this. 

3. Absolute smoothing eye care. This is so lucurious on my skin. I like it. It’s just rich yet easy to apply. It sinks in fast and feels really good. It is too strong for me right now, but it’s just nice. It dries down fast, so in no time, you can start with your makeup. 

I will probably buy the serum and the eye cream. It feels nice on the skin. I like them. But I know I need actual skincare that cater more to oily skin. But if SG has winter, I will buy them. 

Horse Oil Cream

I don’t like this. It smells funny and break me out. My Cousin swear by this though. Not all skin are born equally. This gives her such plump healthy looking skin. Her skin is more on the normal side that needs a lot of moisture. While mine is just oily and prone to break outs. So this is either too rich for me or there’s something in it that doesn’t suit me. Oh well, to each her own. 

Lanocreme Gold Placenta Facial Cream

This is supposed to be delicately fragranced with almond flowers and honey. The scent though, it’s rather strong. I actually like it. It has a nice old school kind of feel. Like a nice flowery body lotion kind of scent. Anyway, the cream remind me a lot like cold cream. But it kind of distributed into the skin rather quick. It’s thick, but flow easily. I like it enough for for night time used. I think it’s too rich for me for day time moisturiser. It’s to be applied on the face and neck. 

My aunt’s friend swear by this but she only applied on her neck. It helped to tighten that area and made it looked better, younger. So she recommends this to us to use for our neck area. Which come to think of it, it’s often neglected. You can have a very smooth face, but your neck more often than not will give away your age. I can’t say whether this actually works or not. But I do like the look the cream gives me. I look fresher. It’s like after you exercise that kind of look. A bit “oily” look, but it just makes me look young and healthy. 

For 100ml, the packaging is quite compact. I only saw this in Aussie, so I’m not sure where else can buy this. I also can’t remember how much this cost too. But I think it’s quite worth for moisturiser for anyone with normal skin. 

Origins GinZing Energy Boosting Moisturiser 

This is quite nice. I never notice the scent until I use this in an enclosed place. The hotel bathroom was rather small. So when I use this, the scent of mandarin is quite strong. Reason it’s mandarin is cause the packaging is orange so it just to me smells of oranges. So it really is an energy boosting moisturiser. 

It’s quite a thin moisturiser, and it sinks into the skin nicely. Only around my nose area will get oily by the end of the day. So a midday touch up is necessary. But it’s quite nice to use this. I wouldn’t buy the full size cause this is not meant for oily skin. 

Merlot Collection Resveratrol Moisture Day Cream

This is such a thick moisturiser. Thus it takes time to blend into the skin. I don’t really like it as I prefer light moisturiser. But it’s alright for anyone with dry to normal skin. It doesn’t have any merlot scent so that’s not an issue if anyone wondering. But ya, it’s not suitable for me at all. 

Lancome Blanc Expert Beautiful Skin Tone Brightening Cream

This is a nice cream to be used for me at night time. I Guess my face is just too oily to take in any cream that does not say for oily skin. I found that this works well for the outer side of my face. That’s where my face is not so oily. It’s actually quite normal. Only around my nose area that is really oily. So I only use this at night as I don’t want to add in the shine during the day. 

I don’t see any brightening effect. But maybe I use this too little time for anything noticeable. I would have enjoyed using this if I stay in colder countries. As this is not heavy yet very moisturising. Then again, there are other moisturiser that I feel is better than this. 

First Impression: Egg Mellow Cream

This is a very moisturising cream. It’s so oily on me. Once you put it on, you already can feel the thickness of it. It’s not thick nor heavy. But for some reason it just feels weighted on my skin. I guess cause this is really quite good for anyone in need of moisture. People with dry skin will love this. People like me not so much. Even in cold country, I think this is too much for me.
