For someone who is unfortunately blessed with dry lips, I do not wear lipsticks everyday as some of the ingredients in the formula could worsen the condition. I have experimented enough lipsticks – and put myself at risk of having undesirable chapped bits on my pout at important events – to identify the moisturizing rouges that are ideal for my type of lips.
If you have the same problem as me, these products are probably suitable for you too!

I don’t use many oil-based products on my face given that I have rather oily and sensitive skin. Nonetheless, I have read a bit about the good benefits of natural oils and learnt that some oil-based products are good fix-it for the face, hair and body. If you are into more natural ingredients, you could consider using such products that are usually free of parabens and other radicals.
Most beauty oils are perfect as moisturisers, with some that are good as makeup remover or facial cleanser (just use one or two drops though). When used on the body, it could help to heal inflammation and improve hydration.
Here are three beauty oils that I would like to introduce in today’s post.

It seems that this year, there are more new BB Cream products available in the market. That is probably unsurprising, considering recent facts and figures reveal that BB Creams constitute 26% of Asian makeup business.
Similar to the review I did last year, I have rounded up and tested 5 new products from Kiehl’s, Dior Snow, VMV Hypoallergenics, Philosophy and Lancôme.
