We have all heard about the dangers of the sun, which could lead to skin cancer. A study shows one in five Americans will be diagnosed with skin cancer, and this number is growing due to increased ultraviolet exposure from the sun and tanning beds. Ask any doctors or any skin specialist…they would definitely insist you to wear sunscreen daily. By wearing sunscreen daily and over the days and months to shield your skin from the risk of various types of skin cancer, especially, melanoma. This is the worst type of skin cancers, which can be life threatening for women, particularly those who are in their 20s.
As that cancer frightened me, I decided to purchase Cosrx’s aloe soothing sun cream online. That was basically after I read a few recommendations from some of the beauty lovers I knew.
This cream is formulated with 5,500ppm of aloe leaf extract which not only protects our skin against UVA & UVB rays, but it moistens our skin. It is formulated with SPF 50+ PA+++ that blocks harmful rays from penetrating our skin and triggering skin disorders. This sun cream has light-weight texture, which absorbs quickly and leaves skin feeling intensely hydrated without feeling greasy or looking flaky like some mineral sunscreens.
First thought…would this cream be compatible with my oily and sensitive skin?
After a few weeks applying this sunscreen on my face, my answer is… “YES! It is suitable for my sensitive skin”. The texture is very hydrating and smooth. It doesn’t irritates my skin and it doesn’t leave any white cast upon application. I wouldn’t need to apply a makeup primer as my makeup goes on nicely over it.
The Cosrx’s aloe soothing sun cream ingredients are:
I read so many reviews on the Althea A’Bloom Moisturizing Watermelon mask sheet from Althea Angels. The reviews are all too good to be true which lead curiosity in me on how effective this product could be.
And so…I purchased the masks during the 10+10 mask promotion thru the Althea website.
This mask is claimed to pack a punch of hydration and moisturization for a juicy chok chok skin that bounce. It has the power of deep hydration with a concentrated charge of ampoule essence. Each sheet contains 25g of essence that instantly fuels up & locks moisture by building soft moisture film on the skin surface.
This mask is suitable for all skin types. It is slightly acidic which helps to rebalance the pH level that has been damaged by the washing or peeling process. This eco-friendly mask sheet is made from natural eucalyptus tree. The texture is soft and and thin yet it won’t easily torn. It sits perfectly on to the skin like a second skin.
The key ingredients of this mask are Citrullus Vulgaris (Watermelon) Fruit Extract which is well known for water nourishment to the skin and Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Extract that helps for calming. The other active ingredients are:
Anti microbial: Acmella Oleracea Extractea Extract.
Every application leaves an intense hydration and cooling sensation to my skin. I noticed a few changes on my skin after several usages. My skin is getting slightly brighter and glowing. The mask scent is mild and very relaxing. It is the best to be used at night after you had a stressful day.
The A’Bloom fruits sheet mask is at retail for RM 2 (USD 0.48) and it comes in other fragrances too, which are:
Lemon: skin brightening and even skintone; and
Peach: anti-blemish and calming redness.

A few weeks ago, there was a big sale on one of my favorite online shopping store, i.e Hermo. As for my friends who are not from Malaysia, Hermo is basically similar to Sephora, selling beauty and cosmetic products at a reasonable prices. Only that…they only works thru online.
As an average woman with average 9-5 hours monthly salary, I got super excited when sales going on but my bank account would probably unhappy with it (average girls problem, tho’).
I started to look around the items that were on sales and all of sudden, my eyes stopped at this Peripera’s Pearly Night Ink Lasting Lavender Cushion. Very weird, Because I’m not a foundation kinda girl. I occasionally wear foundation and most I time, I would used the foundation I bought like for 5-10 times and I will passed them to my sisters before they expired (my sisters are lucky to have me…I know!).
The thing that attracted me to this Peripera’s lavender cushion has gotta be because of the packaging. Yeah…I’m suck at beautiful packaging. It is from the pearly night collection.
This BB cushion comes with SPF 50+ PA+++. It has brightening reflective board effect which may result:
natural luminous dewy glow;
buildable and non-cakey coverage; and
This edition comes with three different shades, which are:
Ohhh…I wish they could come with more shades 😦
I’m a medium tanned Asian woman (NC40) so I gave a shot on shade #3 sand.
Well…their darkest color still look to bright for me, tho’. I know most of Asian women wanted to look fair, but I’m the minority. I love to be tanned and this shade is definitely a NO! NO! for me.
Talking about the formula…I would say it is more like a medium coverage and it is not matte at all! It feels so lightweight on my skin. My skin glow after the application but in a long term, it does look more oily rather than glowy. It started to be a little bit cakey after a few hours of wearing and my laughing line started to cracked.
Maybe I laughed a lot…I don’t know, but I don’t like to see that 😦
Overall, I’m not fancy on this product, but…I might keep this just because of the packaging.
