Favourites: January 2012

End of the first month of the year and I have my favourites here to share with you! I’ll keep it short and sweet, brief. Just five to mention… wow I seriously have cut the numbers down A LOT, I can tell you that.


Lush Catastrophe Cosmetic Fresh Face Mask

Calming, cleansing and brightening without drying out your skin. One of the best Lush masks I have tried. Rich in antioxidant and antiseptic. My skin is loving this at the moment and it leaves me catastrophe free.

MAC Studio Finish Concealer

Took me years to finally realise I need this. A little pot of flawlessness. Applies easy with fingers, blends well when I pat it. Under my eyes or anywhere else or mixed with my foundation, it will do. I take this with me everywhere whenever I go out, easy to sneak into pockets or purses and covers any blemishes including redness. A favourite in my collection, will recommend, will repurchase.

SK-II Facial Treatment Essence

Highly concentrated skincare step in a form of water. They call this ‘miracle water’. I call it ‘serum water’. It hydrates where it needs to, it de-oils wherever there’s too much oil production. The result is a skin I want to touch and feel all the time, a clear skin I long to have, and hope to maintain in years to come. I use this after toner and before serum or moisturiser.

Be In Awe Serums

Be In Awe is new to me. An Australian made and exclusive to a few stockists around the country. Both the Clearing and Calming serums have made such good impressions on me that they are worth the mention in this month’s favourites.

The Clearing serum helps with accelerating the process of ‘clearing’ your skin from any breakout. Within a day or two, any acne I have on my face has reduced drastically. It does not cause any flaking or dry patches.

The Calming Serum is actually very soothing. Any redness, itchiness or irritation anywhere on my face, I would now turn to this serum and apply it there. See my review on it.

Both serums are not sticky, gentle, no strong chemical scent, and little goes a long way. The best thing is they work!

Curash Oral Pain Relieving Gel

I have been experiencing a few mouth ulcers recently, you know when you accidentally bite into the skin inside your mouth? Yeah, those. That leaves you a painful and sore open wound. This gel, available at the babies section in store, had helped relieved that pain. I could eat and smile, when if I had not discovered this, I would be teary just drinking water. Lifesaver. Apart from that I’ve been applying herbal ointment alternating with fresh aloe vera on it to help accelerate the healing process.

PS: Bonjela did not work on me
