Bottoms Up: March Empties and Favourites!

I call March the moisturiser month seeing I’ve used up 3 different types of moisturisers! =p It’s been 4 months since I came home, and I did come home with quite a few moisturiser samples so I’m happy I’ve used some of them up!

(From Left – Right)

1. Kiehl’s Superbly Efficient Anti-Perspirant and Deodorant Cream
I’ve got sweaty underarms. This prevents me from getting sweat patches of epic sizes. I’ve gone through tubes of this and I have to say it’s the best anti-perspirant I’ve used this far. However, a recent outing with the boyfriend made me sway and I’ve purchased…. A man’s deodorant. Yup you read right. Review to come. 😉
2. Sunplay SPF130 PA+++ Super Block
Took me ages to use this up because it dried me out so! 
3. Clarins Hydra Quench Cream
This is a deluxe-sized sample (30ml!) came as a GWP from Clarins. I alternate between this and my Guerlain Issima Happylogy Glowing Overnight Treatment and it works a treat! May consider purchasing a full-sized tub of this once the Guerlain one runs out.
4. Kiehl’s Oil-Free Gel Cream
I finished a tub of this last month and here’s a new tub! Lol am only joking. I got this from the boyfriend who didn’t like the moisturiser so I’ve used yet another tub up! =D
5. Biotherm’s Aqua Source Gel Moisturiser
Non-greasy, light yet moisturising. The perfect gel moisturiser for hot, humid weather.
6. Estee Lauder’s Advance Night Repair Serum
Finally used this up after over a year! I only use 2-3 drops a time and I find it good value for money seeing I only use this once a day. 
Also, I thought I’d just squeeze in some products I’ve enjoyed using in March! 
1. Shiseido Perfect Defining Volume Mascara
The mascara that does not smudge nor irritate my sensitve eyes! Only downside? It’s a pain to remove! I think I’ve jumped onto the mascara-wearing bandwagon again, thanks to this!
2. Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler
Had this for absolute ages (3-4 years?) but the poor curler did not get much loving from its owner as she never uses mascara! I foresee a lot of use with this baby seeing I’ve found a mascara that doesn’t turn me into a teary-eyed monster!
3. Make Up Forever HD Primer
Got this at the persistence of my best friend, KH. We were hanging out at The Gardens Mall when I dropped by MUFE’s island shop and got a makeover. He then gushed over how good primer made me look, prompting me to grab a bottle of this. I usually save this for evenings out but I’ve been using this quite a bit over the last couple of weeks. 
4. Shiseido Perfect UV Protector SPF50+ PA+++
This is fast becoming my new HG! I used to rave so much about Kose’s Sun Protector (which I must review before it runs out) but an ‘incident’ made me rethink purchasing stuff from the brand. That aside, this product spreads evenly, leaves me with no unsightly white patches / breakouts! One of my best buys of the year! (Okay, this and the Shiseido Mascara)
5. La Mer’s The Lip Balm
Been suffering from dry, chapped lips as I’ve been spending over 14 hours in an air-conditioned place. Every single day. I love being in a cool environment but my lips are paying the price! This really helps moisturise them and only a thin layer is needed!
6. Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Shadow Creme in Golden Sands + Mochachino
The lovely Lily  got me hooked onto using cream eyeshadows! These shadow cremes are proof that impulse purchases sometimes turn out for the better! I am really loving these two shades. So much that I’ve been using eyeshadow nearly everyday. 
7. Guerlain Nuit d’Amour Rouge Automatique
I have been wearing this as a stain. Turns my lips into a pretty berry red when applied using a lip brush – with a very light hand! 
8. MAC Tendertone in Hush, Hush
I never wear this alone even though it’s considered to be a moisturising lip balm / gloss hybrid. This has been a permanent fixture in my handbag and I think it’s going to stay in there until I use it up! As Guerlain’s Nuit d’Amour tends to settle into my lip lines, Hush, Hush gently evens those lines out and voila! Soft, plump lips at your service! 😉
March has been an eventful month in terms of favourite products as I’ve discovered quite a few gems! Now bring it on, April! 
Do share your March favourites with me! =)

Hello lovelies, It’s been a while since I’ve blogged as so much has been going on in my life and I have to admit, I’m drowning. Having no Internet access rendered this blog post-less and… View Post
