When i was younger [long time ago], 2in1 shampoo/conditioners had just hit the market and i remember thinking..”this is AWESOME, much less time to waste in the bathroom” <– in case its not obvious, whilst i adore having long hair, i take very little care of it. Its a bad habit i keep till this day but at least i use a separate shampoo and conditioner XD
Anyway fast forward to today, i am still laden down by my 539669 bottles of skincare/haircare/bodycare. And dont get me wrong, i am still very much attached to them but having started yoga a year ago [and still lousy at it] and going away on frequent weekend trips, i decided i needed something i could just use to get by. And this is what i have started using.
I bought the LE set which came with a free tester bottle of their No1 selling bb cream
[80g of whitening gel + 15g of bbcream]
-not as good as the skincare steps i use [i am on a SKII skincare regime]
-no good for winters and colder weather
I bought this because i really didnt want to bring so many bottles with me when i went travelling [or to yoga etc] and for that purpose its perfect. I have started carrying a small bottle of this on the plane as well and it really helps. Somedays when i get home too late, after i shower, i cant be bothered to put all my skincare on, i just use this XD its better than nothing. As skincare, i wouldnt say its amazing or anything so its not going to replace my skincare regime anytime soon. But convenience? it cant be beat.
This sets really nicely. Its not overly dewy nor overly matte nor overly powdery. It seems fairly natural but does not look like zero coverage. No weird scent thankfully. However the oil control is fairly poor. I was fairly shiny by lunchtime and had to powder/blot often. The high SPF is great of course. Most of my bbcreams have an average of 30SPF so this being 41spf is a lot better. One of my faves Sunkiller BB has 50SPF so its slightly higher except this has better coverage. [Sunkiller BB is extremely watery] I’d say this has a spot amongst my bbcream collection I hope to try it again in colder weather.
Have you tried these? OR have you tried other multi formula items? Feel free to share!
In other news, i have been sick at home for the past two days [almost back to full health, just coughing here and there]
I made myself lunch yesterday and posted a pic on instagram [username:yumeko55]<-please add me ?
Several of you asked for the recipe so here it is
1 Tbsp. lime juice
1 Tbsp. soy sauce
1 Tbsp. fish sauce
1 tsp. white wine vinegar, or rice vinegar
1 tbsp minced garlic
1 tbsp sweet chilli sauce
1 tsp white sugar
pinch of white pepper (or substitute regular black pepper)
As you can see, the recipe is mostly 1:1:1:1:1:1 etc. So make it in bulk cos it keeps well. You can store it in the fridge and use it whenever. As for the salad, you can add anything u want, i added one block of fried tofu, half a cucumber, handful of cherry tomatoes, basil leaves, parsley and some vermicelli. Hope you try it out!
Have a nice day!
