[Review] Vichy Bi-white Med Deep Corrective Whitening Lotion

Standard

IMG_1548

got this in one of the Bellabox and was happy cos i love to try whitening products and toner is one of the fastest running out items in my beauty stash.

 

Vichy’s Bi-WHITE MED Deep Corrective Whitening Lotion was specifically tested on sensitive Asian skin, which means that it’s formulated for you. Including the amazing Vichy spring water as a base ingredient, this moisturizing lotion is fast penetrating without ever leaving a sticky after-effect. Amazingly, it targets pigmentation at its source by using DRM-WHITE technology, which controls the biological signal that creates excess melanin and darkness in skin tone deep at its root. The result: clean, bright, light skin is revealed with remarkable softness. Hypoallergenic and paraben-free.

it as a clinical medical smell. not sure if you understand like antiseptic? but its very slight so im fine, i would prefer products with 0 frangrance.

colourless thin liquid and i usually pour it on a cotton pad first then wipe on my face

it doesnt contain alcohol so it doesnt have the cooling feeling on my skin.
i noticed in Singapore humid weather it does take longer to absorb and i have to pat into the skin. even then my skin is still super moist.

it doesnt sting my pimples and cuts which is awesome too.
skin does feel bright and light ­čÖé

[Review] Caudalie Cleansing Water

Standard

Hi everyone! So silly me forgot to pack my trusty Decoderm Cleansing Lotion. I took this chance to try another makeup remover. Off I went to Sephora and got their SA to recommend me something. My requirements were:-

  • Makeup remover for both face & eye
  • Need not remove waterproof makeup
  • Something that is travel friendly

And boy, did I get more than I bargained for. Here is the Caudalie Cleansing Water.

Here’s what this seemingly unassuming product claims and does for me.

“It is a 3 in 1 soap free, non rinse cleanser, makeup remover & toner for face and eyes”

Now, I only wanted a makeup remover. As a makeup remover, it was able to remove my rinsable Dior Iconic Extreme mascara and waterproof Revelon Eye Pen. Sometimes I do use a cleansing water in the morning when I don’t feel the need to use a heavier cleanser (since I washed the previous night before I sleep). So it’s nice to have a multipurpose product. Although for me, i almost always prefer to do a rinse after using these types of non-rinse cleansing water, mostly out of habit than anything. I haven’t tried this in place of my toner so can’t comment on that.

“Suitable for sensitive skin, dermatologist & ophthalmologist tested and suitable for contact lens wearers”

I don’t have sensitive skin but this water doesn’t bite or sting me skin, even around the eye area. Since I don’t wear contact lens anymore, I can’t comment on that. I however remember the days when removing makeup with contacts on can sometimes be unpleasant.

“Parabens and sulfates free”

“Micellar water captures dirt like tiny dirt magnets”

When I use it as a cleansing water in the morning, it removes a layer of dirt and oil, something that my Vichy cleansing water did not pick up as much.

Other things I like about this was that it was a screw lid (no spillage) and the bottle is squeezable. The smell is refreshing and reminds me of cucumbers.

The cons would be the price. A bottle of 100ml is USD14 before sales tax. I’ve already used more than half the bottle and it has only been 15 days.

[Review] Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Lotion & Refill

Standard

“One Drop Locks Up an Ocean” is the tagline for this product which is the best selling item from Hada Labo.

Key ingredient would be the Hyaluronic Acid and this lotion contains 3 types of that, namely Hyaluronic Acid (HA), Super HA & Nano HA. The different types of HA penetrates into the different levels of the skin and helps to nourish and moisturize the different levels.

Though, not marketed as a toner it seems to be used as one since directions are to apply after cleansing face. And there isn’t any other product in this line that is named as a “toner”.

The bottle looks battered because I’ve been using it for awhile and just bought the refill.

The refill was really easy to pour with no low chance of any spillage.

Here’s a drop on my hand. I use about 3-4 drops for both my face & neck.┬áIt’s a clear lotion and the consistency is thicker than a toner. It is to be applied onto palms and pat onto skin until absorbed which takes awhile. This product has no smell so if you prefer nice-smelling products (who doesn’t), this might not be for you as the “no-smell” can smell a little like the hospital or some disinfectant. Also, in the process of patting your face, the sticky feeling can get quite unpleasant. Once that is over, you will find your skin plumped and I’ve tried skipping my moisturizer a few times to test their claim of a “moisture locking shield” and so far it has held true.

I did realize that over time of continued usage, there seems to be a film of residue left, as if my skin can no longer absorb anymore.

Price: SGD 22.90 for 170ml / SGD 18.90 for 150ml refill
