Kanebo Allie Extra UV Facial Gel SPF 50+ PA++++ – Review

This sunscreen is not the most cosmetically elegant product out there; there are certainly better options available. Despite that, I like this sunscreen, and I am willing to repurchase it next year and let me tell you why.  This sunscreen contains a mixture of chemical filters and zinc oxide. Let me tell you upfront that… Read More Kanebo Allie Extra UV Facial Gel SPF 50+ PA++++ – Review

Lancôme UV Expert Aqua Gel SPF 50 PA++++ (2019 Version) – Review

This sunscreen is the 2019 version of the UV Expert Aqua Gel. I’ve picked up the gel version, as I’d thought a gel sunscreen would be light and more suitable for hot, summery weather. Similarly to the Lancôme UV Expert Milky Bright, which I reviewed a few months ago, this product provides high protection against… Read More Lancôme UV Expert Aqua Gel SPF 50 PA++++ (2019 Version) – Review

TARGET PRO BY WATSONS Essential Hot Cleansing Gel – Review

This cleanser is from Watsons’ Target Pro line, which is supposed to be a clinical/pro one with a lot of eye-catching ingredients. The products are meant to treat the skin and strengthen its barrier – that’s the general concept of the line. There are three ingredients written on the tube ‘Diamond Sirt, Ceramide and Thermal… Read More TARGET PRO BY WATSONS Essential Hot Cleansing Gel – Review

Rohto Mentholatum Skin Aqua UV Super Moisture Milk SPF 50+ PA++++ – Review

This sunscreen makes me very happy, especially after two recent failures, because it does what it says on the box. Let me start by saying that this product has been repackaged. It’s the same formula but in a sky-blue bottle instead of a yellow one. Don’t confuse it with a new sunscreen in a pink… Read More Rohto Mentholatum Skin Aqua UV Super Moisture Milk SPF 50+ PA++++ – Review

Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Gel SPF 50+ PA++++ (2019 Version) – Review

Here’s a review of another reformulated sunscreen this year, unfortunately not a successful one.  This formula just as the previous one is a mix of chemical filters and titanium dioxide. It is water resistant and suitable for all skin types, intended for both face and body. It also contains hydrating ingredients such as hyaluronic acid,… Read More Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Gel SPF 50+ PA++++ (2019 Version) – Review

Mentholatum Sunplay Clear Water SPF 50+ PA++++ – Review

Mentholatum Sunplay sunscreens are one of the most popular sunscreens in Japan. They are affordable and provide high sun protection. The sunscreen that I am reviewing today is one of the Sunplay sunscreens reformulated last year. Japanese and Koreans sunscreens often go through changes. I find it quite clever, as a brand can adjust products… Read More Mentholatum Sunplay Clear Water SPF 50+ PA++++ – Review

Hada Labo Tokyo Intense Hydrating Skin-Plumping Gel – Review

Some time ago, I reviewed a few of products from the Hada Labo Tokyo range. Today I am back with another product – Hada Labo Tokyo Intense Hydrating Skin-Plumping Gel. Hada Labo Tokyo describe this moisturiser as: ‘luxurious silky gel cream [which] combines the skin perfecting power of a serum with the intense hydration of… Read More Hada Labo Tokyo Intense Hydrating Skin-Plumping Gel – Review

Cure Natural Aqua Gel & Cure Water Treatment Skin Cream – Review

Cure’s Natural Aqua Gel is one of the most known products amongst Asian beauty lovers. I think it’s the product that initiated the cult of peeling gels. If you haven’t heard about it yet, soon you will. The other one, Cure Water Treatment Skin Cream was a complete novelty for me, I’d had no idea… Read More Cure Natural Aqua Gel & Cure Water Treatment Skin Cream – Review
