Garnier Ambre Solaire Ultra-Light Sensitive Face Fluid SPF 50+ – 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 Ultra-Light Sensitive Face Fluid SPF 50+ – 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

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

Vichy IDEAL SOLEIL Pocket Ultra Light SPF 50 – Review

I don’t know what is going on at L’Oréal’s laboratories, but it seems like nothing good. Here’s a review of another light sunscreen, this time by Vichy.  The product contains exclusively chemical filters, as all L’Oréal sunscreens, it’s formulated with Mexoryls. It also has alcohol and fragrance, the latter in a tiny amount.  European sunscreens… Read More Vichy IDEAL SOLEIL Pocket Ultra Light SPF 50 – Review

CosRx Light Fit Real Water Toner To Cream – Review

When I first saw this product, it reminded me of the Bio-Essence Hydra Tri-Action Mask, which was quite popular a few years ago. Mainly it was because both products have an exciting dew-creating gimmick. Technically, when you apply either of the two products, water droplets are supposed to create on the surface of your skin,… Read More CosRx Light Fit Real Water Toner To Cream – Review

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

Let me tell you upfront that… Read More Kanebo Allie Extra UV Facial Gel SPF 50+ PA++++ – Review

This vitamin C serum, like many others on the market, is inspired by SkinCeuticals’ CE Ferulic Serum. However, as this is PC’s product, the formula is alcohol-& fragrance-free and loaded with skin-benefiting ingredients. The main ingredients of this serum are: ascorbic acid (15%), ferulic acid, and vitamin E.

Avon Anew Vitamin C Radiance Maximising Serum – Review

This product is Avon’s response to the hype for vitamin C serums, which started a few years ago. In short, it’s not that exciting.  This vitamin C serum includes the most potent form of vitamin C, namely ascorbic acid, at the concentration of 10%. It’s problematic to stabilise ascorbic acid and keep it from oxidising… Read More Avon Anew Vitamin C Radiance Maximising Serum – Review
