A’kin Hydrating Mist Toner

I’m still loving all kind of mist. This is a toner, but I used it mostly to refresh my face or spray it before I go to bed. The thing about this is that the spray doesn’t really cover the whole face. The mist is gentle enough. But I have to spray a few times round my face to really get all around. I don’t know, when it comes to spray I have to feel the wetness to feel that it’s on my face. If not I won’t be satisfy an will spray on more. So I think that’s kind of redundant. 

It’s best to close your eyes another 5 seconds after spraying. The droplets will settle on the face a bit late. When you open your eyes too early, it will get into the eyes and it burns. So that’s the bad thing. 

But yah, this will hydrate and tone the face. For refreshing, it’s not so much. But it’s still quite nice on the face. It’s not extremely cooling, it’s just makes your face feels slightly less sticky. So it’s not bad. It’s just convenient to use a spray.

Photo Finish Primer Water

Any spray will sure will get on my list, the same with this primer water which is $52 for 116ml which is really crazy. To me, this is a toner and primer; also a mist. So, take it as a skincare product, it’s quite alright. At least that’s my excuse. Anyhow, I like the spray but I don’t really use it. I don’t feel joy using this, unlike Fix+ or Beauty Elixir. So I don’t tend to reach for it often. 

I also not sure how good this is in term of locking makeup. I only that this is refreshing. It helps moisturise the skin without it feeling heavy. I guess it’s just a good facial mist. But then, it will be better when it comes in a travel size. 

I wouldn’t recommend this. But maybe cause I have way too much facial sprays around. I’ll update again if I have a different opinion on this. 

CdP Gentle Balancing Toner

This is quite fine actually. It’s light and gentle. It doesn’t break me out. It’s not too heavy but it can be used for cold dry weather. It gives your skin a little hydration. So it’s nice. It’s refreshing. I wouldn’t buy the full size. I don’t see the point, but it’s nice to have samples. 

boscia Clear Complexion Tonic

Kind of always wanted to try boscia cleansing product. But this is the one I had from the Sephora Gold member gift. I like anything spray. It’s convenient and perfect for my laziness. This is a tonic, so I’m assuming a toner. Which the description did say to use after cleansing in the AM and PM. I also can use this to refresh my skin. So that’s nice too. 

It’s not overly sticky. But after spraying you can feel a bit of essence on the skin. The spray is very strong. Even though the bottle is tiny, the nozzle is powerful. Therefore, one spray is enough. But I like to spray at least twice or thrice. Sometime even 4 times. Since its powerful, it’s not a fine mist. But it doesn’t make your face overly wet. So the droplets dissappear on your face rather quickly. I like it. So easy to use. Love it. It’s small good for travelling. 

Lancome Renergie Multi-lift Gel in lotion

This is quite nice. It’s a gel. But it turns watery once you rub it in. I like the consistency. But this break me out I think. I just suddenly have a pop here and there. So this might be the culprit. But it’s nice. A nice lotion. Quite hydrating, so it’s good for dry skin. 

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.

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.

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.

Rose Floral Toner

  

The first time I use this, I wasn’t impress. It takes time to actually appreciate this. To me it’s like any other toner I’d tried. But the more I used this, the more I find the differences. This toner set like a layer of protection on my skin. It just feels like I put on something. Even though I apply this using a cotton round. And that’s the other thing. When I pour this on to the cotton pad, it just made the pad wet, and unlike other toner, this will somehow doesn’t feel like it will transfer onto my face. A wet pad, but it’s just a brush over the face. I don’t know, it just feel weird. I always have the feel to pour more to make it absorb more toner. But of course I don’t. As the cotton is already wet. 

Anyway, the rose scent is not that strong. A bit weird, as most Fresh scent is rather obvious. But the toner I feel quite help keep my skin in check. I don’t know why, it doesn’t improve or worse it. But during the period I use this, I know my skin was suppose to get worse, as I wasn’t as diligent about cleansing and masking. But somehow my skin just maintain being just the way it was. So I know this is the reason why. 

I might repurchase this. We’ll see. 

Kiehl’s Clarity-Activating Toner

20140728-010918.jpg

I’ve been using this as I wanted something to hydrate my skin. Toner is just a toner to me. But this claim to help reverse noticeable skin discoloration and restore hydration level. Plus to improve the overall skin clarity. I was hoping this will help maintain my face. I’ve been trying a lot of different acne solutions, so far nothing really works. So this toner is suppose to help with the the skin clarity. So far, I see nothing from this. It’s just a toner and help to tone my skin. Helps to remove extra residue left on my face. But nothing special about this. 

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.
