Beauty Holy Grail and Must-Haves 2016

It’s that time of the year again, to recap the Beauty Holy Grail discovered in year 2016. This year, I’ve only discovered 3 items that are qualified to enter my holy grail list. Here we go!

Beauty Holy Grail 2016

#1. L’Herboflore Hyaluronic Acid Biocellulose Mask

Most of the masks I’ve tried don’t do anything for me. But this one does. If you want an emergency hydration boost that can even soften your fine lines for a couple of days, try L’Herboflore Hyaluronic Acid Biocellulose Mask. Read review.

#2. L’Oreal Eye Makeup Remover

I can’t even recall how many bottles of this I have used. L’Oreal Eye Makeup Remover is definitely holy grail material because it’s cheap and it works superbly. It may not beat those Korean brands in terms of aesthetics, but it sure works better than most. Read review.

#3. MUAC Gly-Luronic Acid Serum

For those yearning for younger-looking, radiant and moisturized skin, MUAC Gly-Luronic Acid Serum does wonders. The easy application makes me reach out for it whenever I’m too lazy to do an at-home chemical peel. Oh, and it works fast in killing my active pimples. So yes, I always have one on stand-by. Read review.

That’s all, only three beauty holy grail discovered in 2016. The Holy Grail list seems to grow at a slower pace, as I have yet to find new products to displace my existing holy grail items discovered in previous years. 



Beauty Top Review

Wait. Don’t go just yet. 

There is another great item discovered in year 2016, rated 4.5 stars and is on my Top Review list. 

* Integrate Mineral Powder Foundation

Only available in Japan and Taiwan, this powder foundation works so well to give great and dewy coverage. Why it stands out is how it sat well even on dry or middle-aged skin and won’t emphasize fine lines or wrinkles. Read review.

  1. hey do you mind sharing your skincare routine (Morning and night)? Also, have you tried the muac 25% mandelic acid peel? If so, can you do a review on it? Whats your skin type? Can the MUAC Gly-Luronic Acid Serum be used as moisturizer?

  2. Hi Denise, my skincare routine varies depending on the condition of my skin. The basic would be toner, moisturizer and eye cream. I will add on serum and emulsion before moisturizer if my skin feels dehydrated. In the day, I will add Vitamin C serum and UV cream.

    On a need basis (normally once every few weeks), I will exfoliate using either Cure Gel, Acid Serum or DIY Home Peel. The above is not conclusive as my skincare routine would have enough content to fill up a blog post. =) You can take a look at my holy grail list to see the items I use on a regular basis.

    I’ve not tried the 25% Mandelic acid peel, so can’t comment on it. After using Mandelic acid serum which smelled quite bitter, I don’t think I would be keen in Mandelic-anything. =P Furthermore, I am very pleased with 40% Glycolic acid peel. So I would probably stick to it.

    My skin type can vary from oily to being dehydrated, depending on the time of the day and season. It used to be oily/normal combination when I was younger. Now, it has evolved to being ‘normal’ on most days.

    When I’m lazy or when my skin didn’t feel too dehydrated, I would just slap on MUAC Gly-Luronic Acid Serum without layering it with moisturizer. But do take note that most serum should be used together with moisturizer. I was just too lazy on some days and the climate here is humid enough. =) You may adjust accordingly depending on your skin type and environment. Hope this helps. And thanks for reading.
