  I itched all over in Taiwan due to cold rash but my face was perfectly nourished, all thanks to Dermalogica skincare products. In today’s post, I’ll share the skincare products that had accompanied me in my 9 full days in Taiwan.  In case you wonder, this is not a sponsored post and it’s also a rare occasion that I’m reviewing samples. I normally refrain from talking about samples as the quantities are often too little for me …

Freshel Moisture Lotion

Freshel Moisture Lotion almost became my holy grail toner

This post may contain affiliate links. Read my full disclosure.

  My current favorite toner is Freshel Moisture Lotion and I can totally see myself emptying it. In fact, it’s already half-depleted by the time this review is out.

I didn’t appreciate that most toners these days gravitate towards being moisturizing than refreshing. As such, their texture can sometimes be slippery or sticky and obviously, that’s not what I …

Kiehl’s Calendula Herbal-Extract Toner

Kiehl’s Calendula Herbal-Extract Toner | Is it worth the buck?

  Woah…this smells like Chrysanthemum tea. That was my immediate thought after using Kiehl’s Calendula Herbal-Extract Toner for the first time. Now, I didn’t know I was paying $58 for something that smells like a traditional cup of Chinese tea, something so familiar since I’ve been drinking it since young. How exciting (yeah, right)!  Since it is alcohol-free and comes with ‘herbal extract’, maybe Kiehl’s Calendula Herbal-Extract Toner would work better than other toners? Its marketing …

Shiseido AquaLabel White Up Lotion S | Good Basic Toner

This post may contain affiliate links. Read my full disclosure.

  What makes a good toner? To me, a good toner is one that removes excess impurities, tightens the pores while softening the skin at the same time. If you are looking for a toner that does the above, Shiseido AquaLabel White Up Lotion S fits the bill. Shiseido AquaLabel White Up Lotion comes in different version – S (Light) and R (Moisturizing). The one labeled with ‘S’ is meant for those with normal to combination skin …
