Kose Suncut Pro Defense Multi-Block Sunscreen UV Milk – Review

When I first read about the release of this product on ratzillacosme.com (the encyclopaedia of the Japanese beauty industry) earlier this year, I couldn’t wait to try it. However, it has turned out to be incredibly disappointing.  The sunscreen combines zinc oxide and chemical filters, offering us high protection of SPF 50+ and PA++++ (4). The unique… Read More Kose Suncut Pro Defense Multi-Block Sunscreen UV Milk – Review

Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Deep Moisture Comfort Balm & Hydro Boost Whipped Body Balm – Review

I think it won’t be an understatement if I say that I have neglected writing about body care products, yet they play an equally important part in my regimen as products that I apply on my face. Growing up with eczema, applying body lotion was a daily ritual for me, sometimes even more than twice… Read More Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Deep Moisture Comfort Balm & Hydro Boost Whipped Body Balm – Review

SkinCeuticals Advanced Brightening UV Defense SPF 50 – Review

In my last review of Skinceuticals’ serum, I said that I wasn’t planning to review more products from this brand this year, but I hadn’t had any idea they would release such an exciting product.  This sunscreen contains a mix of titanium dioxide and chemical filters including L’Oréal’s proprietary Mexoryl XL. The formula also includes… Read More SkinCeuticals Advanced Brightening UV Defense SPF 50 – Review

Garnier Ambre Solaire Super UV Face Fluid SPF50+ – Review

This product is from Garnier’s new releases for 2020, and now I understand why La Roche-Posay discontinued the Anthelios Ultra-Light last year (only in Europe). This sunscreen contains solely chemical filters, including L’Oréal’s patented Mexoryls XL & SX. Garnier are the cheapest brand if you want to use Mexoryls without spending too much for sunscreens… Read More Garnier Ambre Solaire Super UV Face Fluid SPF50+ – Review

Kose Softymo Super Cleansing Wash with Hyaluronic Acid – Review

Japanese cleansing foams are one of the best cleansers out there; they remove everything and don’t strip the skin of moisture. The ingredients list is simple: ingredients that serve to cleanse the skin as well as glycerin and two types of hyaluronic acid to moisturise it.  This foam is fantastic. If you massage it on… Read More Kose Softymo Super Cleansing Wash with Hyaluronic Acid – Review

Dr. Jart+ Every Sun Day Moisturizing Sun SPF 50+ – Review

It’s been a while since I’ve talked about this brand, so here’s another review of Dr. Jart +’s product. This sunscreen contains a mix of chemical filters which provides us with good anti-UV protection of SPF 50+ and PA++++ (4). The sunscreen contains a lot of skin-benefiting ingredients like adenosine, ceramide NP, and niacinamide, to… Read More Dr. Jart+ Every Sun Day Moisturizing Sun SPF 50+ – Review

La Roche-Posay Anthelios XL Sensitive Areas Stick SPF 50+ – Review

A few days ago, I was doing spring cleaning, and I found this stick. I bought this product last year, but I didn’t use much of it.  This sunscreen contains a mix of chemical filters, one of them is L’Oreal’s Mexoryl XL, and micronised titanium dioxide. It has a fatty base featuring glycerine, castor seed… Read More La Roche-Posay Anthelios XL Sensitive Areas Stick SPF 50+ – Review

Sensai Silky Bronze CELLULAR PROTECTIVE CREAM FOR FACE SPF 50 – Review

Sensai is Kanebo’s luxurious brand. Outside of Japan, it includes products from other brands of the company, as it is the case with this product, which isn’t available in Japan. I think it’s based on one of Kanebo’s old Allie UV sunscreens. This sunscreen includes micronised zinc oxide and a mix of chemical filters to… Read More Sensai Silky Bronze CELLULAR PROTECTIVE CREAM FOR FACE SPF 50 – Review

SkinCeuticals Hyaluronic Acid Intensifier (H.A) – Review

 This post concludes my reviews of SkinCeuticals’ products for 2020, as I don’t plan any more for this year.  The H.A. Intensifier is more than just a hyaluronic serum; it contains a lot of ingredients that work together to revitalise the skin. The main component of the formula, besides hyaluronic acid (1.3%), is Proxylane (10%),… Read More SkinCeuticals Hyaluronic Acid Intensifier (H.A) – Review

Clinique Redness Solutions Soothing Cleanser – Review

This is my favourite face cleanser from Clinique, gentle and filled with skin-benefiting ingredients. This cleanser includes many moisturising ingredients such as squalane, which is second in the list, glycerine, cholesterol, cucumber extract, and several skin-soothing plant extracts. Clinique bring our attention to their ‘patented, skin-soothing lactobacillus extract’, which is listed as lactobacillus ferment (clinique.co.uk).… Read More Clinique Redness Solutions Soothing Cleanser – Review

CosRx Advanced Snail Peptide Eye Cream – Review

The Advanced Snail Peptide Eye Cream is one of the newest additions to CosRx’s lineup, and as always CosRx didn’t disappoint.  The main ingredient in this product is snail secretion filtrate constituting 72% of the formula.
