Ren Rosa Centifolia Cleansing Gel | Sephora ad

I have been on a look out for some cleansers that are more natural, non-vigorous and even helps hydrates my skin since I got pregnant. The cleansers that I'm currently using did none of those and its a pain in the butt to treat my flaky skin (especially the area under my lips). 

Lo and Behold!!!

Finally, my prayers are answered and here comes Ren Rosa Centifolia Cleansing Gel



Actually, the packaging doesn't look much to begin with. Sitting in a clear plastic-ky bottle (well, at least you can see how much product you have left), the packaging isn't much. However, do not let it fool you, there's just so much more this product has to offer. 

What it claims:

"A rose infused facial cleansing gel that will leave your skin thoroughly cleansed, refreshed and soothed. 
Results:
  • Gently removes dirt, pollution and make-up.
  • Balances, tones, soothes and reduces pore size without causing any tightness.
  • The perfect all rounder. Cleanses and hydrates for healthy skin metabolism."



Key ingredients for the cleansing gel:

  • - Polyphenols from Rosa Centifolia decongest the skin, soothe and protect facial vessels
  • - Polysaccharides from Aloe Vera retain moisture and soothe
  • - Rose Otto Oil from Damask Rose Petals calms and soothes


As you can see from the picture, the product is a clear type of gel with little bubbles contained within. I would first wet my face and with my wet fingers, rubbing the product between them, and massage onto my skin.

The first thing that hits me is the scent. The Rose Fragrance. Its heavenly I tell you. Well, I love Rose scented products to begin with so this is a definite winner for me. Its really calming and soothing without being overbearing or fake, just like applying roses directly to your skin.

Then after rinsing off the product, I immediately notice the condition of my skin. Its not drying or squeaky clean at all. I was on top of the moon. My skin has never been so smooth and plump/hydrated. Can't stop touching my face seriously and I didn't get those pesky flakes in the middle of the day. A huge thumbs up.

As if I'm not convinced that this is the perfect product me, I went ahead and Googled the product to check for compatibility of the product with pregnant women. Guess what, this product is suitable for pregnant women as it was said that Ren was actually specially created for the founder's pregnant wife!!! :O

OK, I only have good things to say about this product (except for the packaging though). Do take note though that its a little on the pricier side as you are only getting 150ml of products. However, with so many beneficial effects it has on my skin, I'm definitely making this my skincare staple.


Retailing at $50, do head over to THIS WEBSITE to view more details and to purchase.

Erborian Yuza Doudoune for Hands | Sephora ad

If you are unfamiliar with the brand, Erborian is a brand from both Paris and Seoul. Its Co-founders are from these 2 countries whereby successfully marrying the technology & high quality ingredients from Korea with innovative beauty rituals around the world.


Erborian Yuza Doudoune for Hands claims to:

Nourish and soften the delicate skin of the hands with IMMEDIATE EFFECTS as below:
- Nourishes and softens the delicate skin of hands
- Protects skin from external aggressions
- Provides instant comfort



Packaged in a bright yellow squeezy tube, the Key Natural Ingredients used in this product that keeps hands soft and smooth are: 

Yuza: Antioxidant, strengthens the skin barrier
Liquorice: Reduces the production of melanin – responsible for pigmentation marks 
Coconut Oil: Helps to protect, nourish and repair the skin



The product is dispensed as a yellow thick cream which is emollient enough to be spread on your hands. What I do love about this product is how fast my skin "drinks up" the products. I've counted, it literally took 20 seconds. o_O Talk about efficient guys. This makes it a very suitable day hand cream when you need to go to work or do daily household chores as it doesn't leave any sticky or slippery residue.

Another factor that I really enjoyed about this product is the scent. Its not too overpowering or sickly floral/sweet when applied. It has this soothing light citrusy fragrance that leaves your hand smelling all refreshed.

Well, if you want me to nit pick, I kind of wish the cream stayed a little longer on my hand so that I can feel it doing its magic moisturising and hydrating my hands. Weird I know, but oh well, that's just me.

Retailing at $17, do head over to THIS WEBSITE to view more details and to purchase.

This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray | Sephora ad

When Sephora contacted me to test out some natural skincare products (themed Natural Allure whereby products are powered by the best of nature's ingredients) that they carry, I immediately said YES!!! As you may have already know, I'm currently pregnant and am super picky on what I put on my face or apply onto my skin.

Because some ingredients may be too harsh and might harm my baby which I'm trying to avoid at all cause.

These products really came just in time to the rescue.





You can already tell from the picture that Sephora stocks all kinds of brands that you can ever imagine. From the famous Fresh, Caudalie and Burt's Bees to the more exclusive brands like This Works, Ren and Estelle & Thild.

Thus, in the next couple of posts, I'll be reviewing each and every single one of them and letting you know how I get on with them and their effectiveness.


First, we have This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray


Packaged in a sleek white angular bottle, it carries a relaxing calming lavender scent with hints of chamomile (you know, the tea that you drink to sleep better). 



Spritz the solution onto your pillow and the reassuring scent of lavender pulls through. Its not too strong that you might choked on it when you lie in bed nor it is too faint to be detected. And guess what guys, for the last few nights I haven't got too much trouble falling asleep (try sleeping sideways with a bowling ball attached to your tummy every night :P). And I'm not even a huge fan of lavender to be honest.

That is like a miracle o_O. I fell asleep within 5 minutes which is really rare for me unless I'm like super tired.

OK, this got me hooked big time. And after doing some research, This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray is suitable to use during pregnancy as it does not contain harsh ingredients.

My only gripe is the mist dispensed (or rather water droplets) is a bit too big for my liking. It kind of wet my pillow case but luckily it evaporated just as quick.

Definitely recommending this product to anyone who have trouble falling asleep and like lavender smelling goods. Retailed at $32, do head over to THIS WEBSITE to view more details and to purchase.

Lucozade Sport Isotonic Electrolyte Drink | ad

If its your first time coming across this brand, Lucozade is a UK brand (under Suntory Beverage & Food Group, which also bring you the well known Ribena) with its first drink release in 1972. 


Lucozade has always been sponsors for sports events in the UK and now, it is once again proud to be the Official Isotonic Sponsor for popular races in Singapore such as The Spartan Race, TRI-Factor Series and The Performance Series (powered by Passion Card). 




As you can see from the picture, the drink is orange flavoured. It claims to provide carbohydrates and electrolytes for better hydration (thus improving endurance and performance) which can be consumed during and after intensive exercises. Besides the benefit of rehydration, Lucozade Sport Orange is also able to replace sodium lost in sweat.

What I do like about this drink is that its not overly sweet like some other sports drink. I despise those with a strong sugary aftertaste and Lucozade did not have that at all. The zesty orangey taste is really refreshing and I must say, when chilled, it tastes better and is absolutely perfect for after a meal, picnic, on-the-go or just when you are thirsty. The swanky sporty sturdy looking bottle tops my liking for this drink too.

All in all, I really enjoy the drink and for more information, do head over to THIS LINK and THIS LINK. The drink is retailed at S$1.40 and available at all major retailer stores.
