Pimple is a hard pill to swallow, though a 'dedicated' mist may be slightly easier on the face! Such is the 【DrMind AC Dressing Mist】I have received from the brand last week.
.
The Dressing Mist claims to provide a 'dressing effect' to soothe, protect, cleanse and moisturise the irritated area in a handy mist spray (NOT to be replaced with a toner, but can be used in conjunction with one). Its carefully crafted formula has gotten itself an EWG Green Grade.
-------------------------------------------------------
Ingredients highlight are:
• ATOVAX: Patented ingredient complex with 24 medicinal herbs to soothe stressed, troubled skin
• Bee Venom: Purifying, trouble relieve
• Sea Salt Extract: Waste management
• Azelamide MEA: Sebum regulating
• Erythritol: Moisturise & Refresh
-------------------------------------------------------
Also guys, although I need more information from the brand, a look at the ingredient list shows that the only thing that needs highlighting is the ethanol content. The rest, and I mean everything else, are functional ingredients -- active and non-active. No fragrance, no common preservatives, nothing in it that I cannot understand. There isn't a fragrant scent to it and I like that the mist particles are micro enough to not disturb my makeup. It is not the most hydrating mist which makes it ideal for an oilier complexion or one that's troubled.
.
.
PS. I have a major giveaway for the brand's AC Clear Cushion (another promising item), refer to my previous posts of it! I hope you guys take part and try it too!

Having sensitive and acne-prone skin means that my skin is often red and angry. Whether it is during a breakout period, or a recovery period, my skin is always riddled with reddish brown spots and redness. Especially against my slightly fairer complexion, it magnifies all the imperfections by ten fold. To tone down the redness, I usually reach for a green corrector/base before cushion. But having tried the 【DrMind AC Clear Cushion SPF47 PA++】I can just skip the green and focus on the 'clean'!
.
In collaboration with Dr Mind, we are giving away 50 pcs of AC Clear Cushions for you to test and review. Refer to my previous post for entry details! ❤️

Possible dupe!! When I first applied this 【XOY Grapefruit Sun Cream SPF50+ PA++++】on my face, the immediate gel-to-water texture reminded me so much of Bioré UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence -- in terms of texture and smell. Performance wise, I find the XOY one much more hydrating.
.
According to the brand, this sun cream contains an antioxidant-rich Superfood 11 Complex to help protect, repair and strengthen the skin. These superfoods include Grapefruit, Oat, Green Tea, Garlic Bulb, Brazil Nut, Broccoli, Blueberry, Spinach, Salmon Egg, Wine and Tomato. Besides providing high amount of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, it also helps whiten and brighten the complexion naturally. I especially love that it lends a gentle cooling effect when freshly applied!
.
Compared with typical "overachieving, all powerful" sun screens out there, this Grapefruit Sun Cream is surprisingly hydrating without heaviness, and it absorbs and mattifies without much user effort.
.
At ₩25,000 /50ml, I am going to save it for good days when I am not working and am just going out to hang, play or party. I will be slowly reviewing and featuring some of their other products too so stay tuned! In the mean time, do check them out at @xoybeauty and @xoy_life

Perhaps the one product type that I will forever find it hard to skip completely is the boosting essence or, first treatment essence.
.
Usually clear and watery, these boosting essences are made up of a core ingredient which helps to "kick start" and boosts the natural skin turnover. An array of other skin-benefiting ingredients are also included to amp it up.
.
I have been using the 【Naruko Face Renewal Miracle Essence】for a bit now and I am pleasantly amazed by its rather immediate skin calming effect. With a whopping 60 precious botanical extracts (some regarded as medicinal herbs), this is the first boosting essence I have encountered that boasts an "acne clearing" and whitening effect.
.
While it did not curb the situation, it definitely helped in reducing the uber red inflammation that comes along with the pimples. It also, combined with Cosrx x Charlotte Triple C Lighting Liquid, helped lighten the acne marks significantly!
.
.
Note: 60 different kinds of botanical extracts is its pro, but may be also a con for some who may not be aware if they are reactive towards some. My suggestion? Order the 30ml deluxe travel size to test it out first!

So happy to finally meet @john_krites this morning! Although he's technically off-duty (Singapore is one of his holiday stop), he is still sharing with me the brand philosophy, history, product info and concept of @Dr.DennisGross Skincare! He's even giving me tips and advices too! Such a kind, sweet & caring person ❤️
.
After today's tête-à-tête, I have a deeper understanding about the brand (and the reason why the peeling pads are a cult favorite), as well as what goes on behind the scene. One big takeaway is that sometimes, the numbers (percentage, concentration etc) isn't everything. The bigger picture is. A good product is not always about how high a percentage a marketed ingredient is, but what the product can do for your skin ultimately. I am definitely more intrigued and will look forward to its new launches -- launches that meets the demand and need of the market, not one that gets diluted in the trend.

Three honey cera sticks, for sure no more chapped lips.
Although just a single stick, is enough to do the trick.
Three seems like an overkill, but really, I am just kiasu.
.
【Etude House Honey Cera Lip Balm】is easily one of the lip balm stick that I constantly reach to. There is just something about the combination of honey and ceramide that makes this super hydrating and softening. However, the base of this lip balm is petrolatum so those who are avoiding the ingredient do take note.
.
Some of the ingredients highlight are: Macadamia oil, Apricot oil, Shea butter, Argan oil, Murumuru seed butter, Vitamin E, Sunflower oil, Jojoba oil and Glycerin. Both honey and ceramide are listed behind glycerin but before the preservative, so that's okay in my book.
.
Have you guys tried this before? I'm still looking to purchase the Honey Cera Lip Oil, but the local store does not seem to carry it. Mmmm.

Tonight's mask of choice is the "squeeze & mix" 【Celkin Press & Shiny CO2 Creamy Mask - Coconut】
.
A 2-stepper, I first emptied the CO2 Booster (Water, Citric & Glycolic acid) in the right pouch into the left pouch where the mud mask lies. Then, I massage the left pouch to mix the booster and mud mask together before opening up the pouch to apply the mud mask onto my face.
.
First thing you will notice about the off-white mud mask is its appearance. Because of the sodium bicarbonate in the mask, you will find bubbles forming as soon as it is emptied out from the pouch, though they soon go away as quickly as they formed. Even though fragrance is added into the formula (last ingredient), the smell is still pretty off putting. It's not bad, it's bearable, just not what you'd imagined for something that says it contains fragrance. .
For $1.90 a piece, I think it does a decent job in pore cleansing and brightening. But at that price for a mask WITH AHA and other ingredients for troubled-skin, I am convinced I need this.
.
PS. This made my skin tingle and I AM a seasoned chemical peel user so sensitive skin users might want to stay away from this.
