So we are coming towards the last week of April! Times flying fast and hows our beauty products? I cannot wait to share with you what I have got this month! As most of you would know if following my instagram, I have finally got myself some Antipodes from Beautybay! I have to say with previous years in Sydney, I have never heard of this brand. So what got me trying? I do hear a lot of good stuff on the web, in particularly from Essie Button blog.
So I was very much influenced to try the Antipodes Apostle Skin brightening & tone correcting serum. If you had not known, I got really pale and sensitive skin and as I grew older, I just need more skin brightening, whitening serum to fight off the sun damages. I had been trying this for a little more than 3 weeks, and it kept my skin bright and moist, it smells really good with all the natural goodies of waiwera, kiwi extracts and most of all is organic! It smells really good plus is highly water-based. I would certainly keep it to my good use on a day to day basis!
Next I got the, Antipodes, Savior Skin Balm, I just need to get this as a first aid item at home. It is a salvation balm for itches, sensitivities along with natural ingredients like tea tree and totara. I just like to keep these balm close to bay from mosquitoe bites, blemish or an itch. It really got the tea tree smell which is quite soothing. It is quite a huge tub for the price and would last me a long way! Happy purchased, been using for my sensitve skin on extreme dry areas due to changing weather here in HK!
Lip balm, I was very fortunate to grab the Body Shop Aloe lip care, which I had a very difficult time as the stock runs out in HK. So by the time I found out its available again, I got three tubes!!!! So this was another try out products after recommendations by blogger, Essie Button. I luv this, it is a bit thick when you first put it to try, but it really helps to flake off any dry skin overnight. I got really dry flaky lips to a point most stylist couldn't help to say its pretty serious and this product really helps me get a smooth lip the next day for any lipstick I wanna use! Bravo! So I have been addicted to this day, midday, night haha!
I had also dig up my old Laneige, White Plus Renew Purifying Mask, it is more of a enzyme peeling with papaw extracts. I like to use this to clean off the dead skins for summer. For one little packet, I normally use it for 3-4 nights.
On a day to day basis, I kept to my use on my Hera Pure CC Cream which I have indicated my crave on this cream in previous post! I just can't help to use it daily. It gives the most natural finish and its very thin product. I do not really need to blot or reapply during the day!
Cloud 9, whitening cream, as preivously blogged, I still keep using this like a ritual. I actually apply a thinner layer now because the whitish tofu-like substance would make your face quite white so I kept it to minimal without looking like a Geisha......I am hoping it would make my spots go away......wishful thinking?
So this is for April! As I am starting this blog, I think I am actually buying more products, those I really wanna try - especially - natural & organic! I grew very very interested in the Antipodes brand, will continue to make a splurge on it!!!! Is funny, I try to ask my Aussie friends and they were like me, never heard of such a great brand!!!!
