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. 


Garnier Miracle Skin Cream


This is a white moisturiser that when you rub onto your skin will turn to a nude shade. It’s rather cool and unexpected. But I feel this kind of break me out. At least it feels that way. So this must the cause of my pimples. 

Anyway it’s not a thick cream. It easily blend. And even though it has colour, but it suits most skin type. The shade hardly can be seen on the face. Even though is for all skin type. I still think it’s best for normal to dry skin. It’s a bit heavy on oily skin. It will make your skin shiny quite fast. Not a big fan of this. 

Garnier PureActive Fruit Energy Daily Energizing Gel Wash


Someone recommend me this facial wash. It’s alright. The grapefruit is not strong enough. I thought it will be a scent that will wake me up. In the end it’s ok. An average cleanser. It removes makeup ok. But still better for a morning cleanser. It doesn’t exactly remove off my pimples but no more spots come into light. So I think it’s really good in that sense. It’s gentle. For oily skin, it’s ok. Can it last, not really. But I mean it’s good enough. 

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water

I’m on a micellar water run. I want to try them all. So I been trying out the Garnier one. And I do like it. It removes makeup very well. It has no pump but it easily disperse out the water. Also good cause can use cotton bud to get a bit of water without it spilling all over. 400ml = 200 uses. Not sure about that as a full face of makeup, I have to use about 5 cotton pads. 

It’s slightly more soapy but it doesn’t feel like it has soap. It’s just on the pad you can see the soap, that foam when soap foam up. Does that make sense? But Ya that is the difference between this and Bioderma or others that I’d try. 

For 400ml, less than £5, it’s two thumbs up.  

Garnier Fresh Essentials

Cleansing wipes with grape extract for face and eyes. This is for normal to combination skin and can remove even waterproof makeup. Well I guess it does, but not extremely well. It appears to be on the dryer side of a wipe. And I do not like it, especially the first 3 wipes. I then turn it upside down, and surprisingly the next one I pulled out was so much more “wet”. It was easier to remove makeup then.

For only $3.90, I bought it as SwanSton which is a cheaper version of Watsons in ChinaTown which is near OG. I would suggest to go there to get Biore cleansing wipes too. So much cheaper! Perhaps I shall do a SwanSton haul sometimes, but I gotta empty my products first. So this in the end, it’s not a win for me. Too harsh on the skin for my liking. 


First Impression: Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector

This is not exactly a first impression as I did try the bb cream before. This time though it’s the medium shade. Which turn out to be quite dark on the skin.
From the picture it seems that it matches my skin really well. I guess it does. But looking at the mirror I just looks super tan. I still like this bb cream for it is easy to apply. Unlike the previous try, this actually gives me a dewy finish instead of a matte. The coverage is alright, as it is light, it is easy to apply. Overall, medium is not really my color.

The $20 makeup challenge

Hello, today this blog turn 1. I did managed to get rid a lot of products that are old. Kind of proud about that, however I have subsequently collected more. In the process of blogging things down and throwing them out, I fell in love with makeup. I find that I want more. So even though I have more toys now, it is alright, as I actually use them.
This blog has taught me a whole bunch of things, like skin care, makeup, application, myself, etc. I am more dedicated to my skin care regime and caring more about how I look. It is still a learning process, and I thank you for following through this journey with me.

I thought it will be fun to do something different.

The $20 makeup challenge is one of the most popular tag on YouTube. So I decided to do a post on my version of $20 makeup challenge products. I have to roughly convert it to Sing dollar and since makeup is generally more expensive here, therefore it will be less item for S$25.40.

For the past few days, I’ve used only the items mention in this post. I greatly miss my other lip colors, but for the sake of this post, I sacrifice. I also try to use different brands as its more challenging this way.

Garnier overnight whitening peeling cream


With pure lemon essence, it smells lovely. Easily blend onto the skin. At first it feels weird as you feel that there is something on your face. Eventually you are used to it. It gives off a dewy/glossy finish, which is not something I like.

For a peeling cream, it’s suppose to peel your skin? Upon extra googling research, I found that it actually suppose to peel off the dull skin and remove dark spots while you are sleeping. So when you wake up, you are suppose to have whiter skin.

In the morning, my face is visibly brighter. A least that’s what I feel. It wasn’t oily which is good. I guess it’s better for oily to normal skin. You have to use it for 28 days to really see the result(reduce dark spots, fairer skin). But I only managed to use this for 10.

Overall, I do like this but not enough to buy the full size. I feel there are better night cream out there.

First Impression: Garnier light bb


I don’t know if you can see the picture but that’s the 10 benefits of this bb cream. Sadly I only have a sample. So trying out once does not really provide the best judgment on this cream. But I suppose it will have to do.

It’s creamy and easily blend. Like all bb it comes in one shade. My skin tone is on the medium side. Can appear fair on camera, but it is alright with bb cream color. So lucky me. Bb cream can be my best friend.
It blends into skin. And it’s just like a foundation with the added SPF. Doesn’t really moisture my skin like the “Asian” bb cream suppose to. I guess it’s ok as a foundation. But I’m not really interested in purchasing the full size.
