SANA Namerakahonpo Soy Milk Whitening Gel – Review

Here’s a review of a product from a popular Japanese brand, Sana.  The formula includes a blend of moisturising and brightening ingredients: two actives, arbutin and liquorice extract, which are well-known to help with hyperpigmentation.

Solbari Dry Touch SPF50+ Face Sunscreen – Review

This sunscreen was my first Australian sunscreen, from an authentic Australian brand, not an American brand masquerading as Australian. Australia has strict sunscreen regulations, and, usually, Australian suncare offers high anti-UV protection. Unfortunately, this product was disappointing.  I bought the product last autumn, without knowing what ingredients it contained, as they had not been listed… Read More Solbari Dry Touch SPF50+ Face Sunscreen – Review
