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. 

Korres Pomegranate Moisturising & Balancing Cream Gel

I’ve been using this about a month now. I’m only 1/4 through. I only use this in the morning, and I don’t use a lot of it. It’s quite alright as long as I use a setting powder, my face doesn’t really turn oily. Even though this is meant to be for oily skin. So a little is all you need. I find that it hydrates my skin well enough, but it’s not really as good as other moisturiser I’ve tried. Cause this is a thicker cream. Therefore, it takes longer for this to sink into the skin. Since I used do little to spread it around the face, this doesn’t take that long to sink in. So it’s quite ok for the morning. 

I would prefer a lighter, runnier moisturiser as its easier to spread out for the morning rush. But I have no complain. Plus I manage to use this for a long time. So it’s good enough for me. Just not a favourite I guess. I think this will be better for night time, but I just don’t like the jar form. Don’t really fancy dipping my fingers into it. So yeah, it’s just a morning thing. 

First Impression: DearPacker Mas Cream

This is a very thick moisturiser. It’s good for people with really dry skin. It takes forever for the cream to set into the skin. So this is not for me. But I think this will be nice in winter months. But I do like the scent. It has a faint sweet scent which I can’t put a finger as to what scent. But it’s nice. 

Medicated Sekkisei Lotion and Emulsion

I was given these and I have no idea what they were. The formula feels like serums. I am not sure if both are the same or different. I take it that they are different. And upon researching I think one of them is a lotion (right) and the one with the pump is a moisturiser. I may be wrong, but the moisturiser is slightly thicker. 

I don’t really want to talk about these as I am not 100% certain what they are. But these doesn’t really break me out. So it’s not bad. Oh well, I just want to have this up on this blog cause I want a memory of this. 

pai Perfect Balance Discovery Collection

This is a good way to try out the brand. But this set, is not exactly cheap. I can’t remember how much I got it for, but I think it is over $35.

The Set Contains:
Camellia and Rose Gentle Hydrating Cleanser (30ml)
Suitable for dry, delicate and sensitive skin, the non-drying cleanser effortlessly melts away the build up of daily dirt, make-up and impurities. Packed with omega 3 and vitamins A, B and E to protect the skin’s natural moisture barrier, leaving it silky soft with increased suppleness.

Rice Plant and Rosemary BioAffinity Tonic (12ml)
Alcohol-free and infused with pure ‘living water’ extracted directly from rice plant, the calming tonic purifies and balances the skin to improve skin tone and texture. Developed for sensitive and easily irritated skin types, its vitamin, mineral and amino acid rich formula soothes and strengthens your complexion, whilst decongesting pores.

Geranium and Thistle Rebalancing Day Cream (10ml)
Rebalance oily and breakout-prone skin with the non-greasy moisturiser, developed to regulate oil production, eliminate unwanted shine and combat blackheads. Utilising organic ingredients and essential fatty acids contained in thistle and borage oil, the fast-absorbing cream delivers a matte velvet finish, evens out skin tone and leaves you with a perfect base for make-up application, without clogging pores.

A handy wash bag and organic muslin cloth.


The cleanser is alright. Not a big fan of it. It is better as a makeup remover, where you apply it on your dry skin and remove with cotton pad. The muslin cloth is quite rough. I am not sure if the texture is suppose to be such. But it is nice to have an extra face cloth and I always wanted a muslin cloth.

The toner is my fav as it is a spray. It is just so convenient to apply as a spray. The smell is a bit weird though.

Moisturiser is for day. Not sure why. I don’t see any declare SPF. But it is a fast absorbing cream indeed. I like it as a day moisturiser. It dries fast, and my face will not be super oily after. As long as I use a good sealing powder that is. Overall, it is an okay set. I wouldn’t exactly buy the full size though.

ZA True White Cream

Got a sample of this moisturiser. This is in a cream form which come in a tub. The thing about this is for dry skin. So it is more moisturising than the moisturiser in the bottle. I don’t really like this as its too oily for my skin. I can only use this at night. And even so it’s not something I will repurchase. 

Sebamed Clear Face Care Gel

This is a sticky gel. It’s suppose to be good as it’s for acne prone skin and it’s free from oils and such. But it’s just so sticky. I don’t like it. Plus I don’t see how this helps my skin. So after using it barely a week, I stop. 

I don’t know if I got a bad batch. Or it’s suppose to be this sticky. I mean sure it will be ok after about 5 minute. But I just don’t have the time to wait. So this is a no for me.
