Sunscreen Test

The weather is getting hot, I am going to recommend some useful sunscreen to protect the skin. As we all know, sunscreen, not only indirectly to help skin whitening, but also help to delay aging. UV rays can damage epidermal cells, causing skin relaxation, dull, spots and fine lines. Let me introduce some useful sunscreen to help you have a choice. Some sunscreen’s price are expensive, but some of the price are reasonable and easy to find.

I bought this sunscreen in CVS, this is a classic one, it strengthen the protection, the main function is the high coefficient of non-greasy sun protection. I have used the spray as well, spray the body is very convenient, recently I replaced the spray by the emulsion, my feeling is also very refreshing, I use it almost 90% of the time, this is a large bottle of sunscreen, rubbing the body without pressure.

It is a 3-ounce bottle of liquid sunscreen lotion. The Broad-Spectrum SPF 30 sun protection that helps leave skin healthy and clear (however, higher SPF has more side-effects). It is designed for acne-prone skin. This product also has Helioplex Broad Spectrum UVA/UVB protection. It is still in good coating, texture is more refreshing, and looks full of water, this sunscreen is very good, but sometimes feel slightly stuffy,  I found this sunscreen is pure chemical sunscreen after I search in the Internet, so I don’t recommend sensitive skin to use it.

La Mer THE BROAD SPECTRUM SPF 50 UV PROTECTING FLUID

LA MER is a fine brand with good reputation although at high price. This sunscreen includes the Miracle Broth which is the heart of every single LA MER’s collection. This product has more functions which are way beyond the sun proof, such as “moisture, regeneration, soothing, smoothing, and radiance.” This sunscreen will perfectly melt into varied type of skins and you will be the miracle witness.

THANN Facial sunscreen SPF30 PA +++

THANN_Shiso_Sunscreen_SPF_30_PA+++

This sunscreen I bought when I travel in Thailand , was strongly recommended by my sister. It is oil-free with Shiso and White Tea extracts. When I use it, I understand why so many people like it. It is completely non-sticky and not white, high comfort, emulsion texture. Without any feeling of discomfort. In addition, the sunscreen is oil-free physical sunscreen. SPF is very suitable for daily life. It’s very refreshing, and meet all my sunscreen requirements. The only disadvantage is that I can not buy it easily in United States, I can only buy it in Amazon and need to wait a long time. I strongly recommend all of you to buy this sunscreen, it will not let you down.

Serum

Kiehl’s Hydro Plumping Re Texturizing Serum Concentrate

Hydro_Plumping_Re_Texturizing_Serum_Concentrate_3605970619527_1.7fl.oz._Box_alt1

This serum has highly moisturizing essence, my best love of serum. I can’t remember how many bottles of this serum I have used, I can use it for whole seasons. This product has gentle gel texture, contains 15% derived from plant glycerol and basil leaves extract, full of  plant energy. Turned into numerous small drops of water, layers of penetration into the skin, so amazing. And it is not a simple replenishment, it is the feeling of water and oil balance. I feel fresh in summer, in autumn and winter it can ease the dry. With it, my skin is filled with moisturizing every day.

Clarins Double Serum Luxury Size Complete Age Control Concentrate

This serum is half of the water half of the oil,  you can clearly see the yellow and transparent color of the two components when you squeeze out. In fact, oil-soluble and water-soluble this two kinds of essence looks very oil, but has absolutely good absorption, moisturizing nourishing anti Aging effect. The best way using it is to squeeze into warm hand and then massage to the face,sensitive skin can also use it.

La Mer The Concentrate

_5871065

This is the most expensive serum of mine, and it is also has the best repair ability. This serum should be the repair and thickening of the kicking ability of the strongest products in Lar Mer, thickening horny for the thin skin is the gospel, but for health skin, the horny is too thick, it seems that the skin will be rough and dull. This product is more suitable for use in the partial, it can solve the problem of redness which contains a very high concentration of repair essence, mainly for postoperative repair (such as medical beauty, scald burns, etc.) I generally only use in the partial.

SK-II GenOptics Aura Essence

This is so far I’ve used the most effective whitening serum. Anybody let me recommend the effect of good whitening essence it is the best answer. This product texture fresh, has good absorption, and the effect is significant. After using a period of time, I can really get the whitening effect when I look at the mirror.

el_sku_R7L301_558x768_0

This is actually called the essence of water is more appropriate, slightly yellow liquid is very viscous, but also reveals a touch of alcohol taste (although the composition of the table shows no alcohol). It is easy to absorb, but the feeling is sticky and need to wait a minute before they disappear, moisturizing effect is very lasting. You can only use this lotion in hot summer, no longer need the emulsion.

Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist

rbm-101500-front-102-rosewater-balancing-mist.1470295794

This spray texture has no difference with pure water, very refreshing, with a thick roses fragrance. It can continue to distribute fragrance two or three hours after applying. Spray is very delicate, very easy to absorb after tapping. Moisturizing effect in general, only use this kind of water in any season are not enough. It contains alcohol, a stimulant preservative and a variety of spices. I think sensitive skin should avoid this mist. The formula is also relatively simple, basically only play the role of moisturizing.

Kiehl’s Calendula Herbal Extract Alcohol-Free Toner

This is orange transparent liquid, you can clearly see the calendars of calendula petals. Texture is very refreshing, only thicker than pure water, with a light floral. It is very easy to absorb, moisturizing effect is in general. Although the ingredients do not contains alcohol but contains a preservative, this preservative’s ranking is in the front, and in larger dose, try to avoid long-term use.

Makeup remover

Lancome – BI-FACIL Double-Action Eye Makeup Remover

When I first use this product, I was Surprised by its amazing effect. I usually apply it with makeup cotton, it is gentle, can efficient clean my eye makeup and doesn’t stimulate eyes. The official site says: ” This award-winning phenomenon gently whisks away all types of eye makeup, even waterproof. Simply shake to activate the bi-phase formula that leaves the eye area perfectly clean. The lipid phase lifts off eye makeup, while the water phase contains special emollients to refresh and condition skin without a greasy residue. Lifts off all types of eye makeup, even waterproof mascara, while conditioning the skin. Leaves eyes feeling cool and refreshed, with no oily residue. No wonder there’s a cult following.”  If you think the price is not reasonable, I think MAYBELLINE EXPERT EYES® 100% OIL-FREE EYE MAKEUP REMOVER is also good enough too.

After remove my eye and lip makeup, I usually use CPB cleansing cream oil to remove my facial makeup. You just need like a five cents coin quantity to rubbing it and use some water to wet face in order to emulsification the oil. The official site says:” A silky cream that transforms into a luxurious cleansing oil, for effortless removal of heavy or waterproof makeup for smooth, supple renewed skin with unparalleled radiance. Helps counteract the effects of air pollution on skin’s surface that can lead to visible signs of aging.”

Cleanser

Cle de Peau Beaute – softening cleansing foam 4.2 oz

CPB cleansing is still their classic taste, white paste. Squeeze the appropriate amount in the hands may not be able to play a lot of foam, but after massage in the face, the bubble will naturally gradually become dense, with the light massage, the bubble will become more and more dense in the face. The dirt in the pores are completely taken away. After wash with water, the skin is very smooth and soft, but not a false sense of skin, the color was bright white, moisturizing is super good. Even after washing face 10 minutes without skin care products, the face will not have a sense of tension. CPB products have two aspects to do particularly good, one is moisturizing, the other is the gloss. I really recommend this cleanser to all of you.

CoverGirl & Olay Simple Ageless Foundation  SPF 22, color: 205

I bought it in Target, this foundation contains a sponge puff, but I really don’t like it. I usually use my Beauty Blender to apply it to my face. After I using this foundation, I am surprised by it’s excellent holding capacity. I almost wear it for the whole day and didn’t apply any other powder, and it is good for cover the spot, the concealer is also prefect. But it is a little bit dry for me, so it’s really suitable for oil skin. I need to do the good moisturizing before I use this foundation.

Clé de peau beauté cream foundation (Fluide), color:oc00

This foundation I bought in Japan, this is a Japanese brand and very popular in China. In America, my color would be I10. One of most advantages of this foundation is: the more oil, the more nature. I don’t if you can understand it >< After I use this one, this is also matte effect like Tarte and L’OREAL. It is really suitable for combination and oil skin, good use in spring and summer. It lasts long and the concealer is also good. But the price is higher than Tarte and  L’OREAL.

Clé de peau beauté radiant cream foundation, color: I10

This foundation I bought it in America, this is the latest cream foundation of this brand. The official said it is in the middle of cream foundation and silky foundation, the moisturizing is better than silky foundation, but oil control is worse than cream foundation, the concealer is almost the same.  I haven’t use it, but I think it is good for all type of skin except you are really oil.

◊ Sisley oil free foundation, color: O Porcelaine

This foundation is made of nature, so whether you are normal or sensitive skin you can use it, even you are pregnant! Because it is oil free, it is also good for oil skin. This foundation is really thin, and won’t hurt your skin. But for me, it only lasts for 4 hours in summer, I will still oil after that, so I will not consider to buy it again for me.

Moisturizing: ♥♥♥♥

Oil control: ♥♥♥

◊ YSL Youth Liberator Serum Foundation, color:BR20

This foundation is my best love in winter, I buy it because of the dry weather in Philadelphia. It contains serum so that it feels smooth and won’t hurt my skin. Also, I like the smelt of this foundation.It is thicker than Sisley oil free, but not so thick. I will consider to buy it again for winter use.

◊ Tarte Amazonian clay full coverage foundation, color:Fair Sand

A lot of popular makeup artists recommend this foundation, so I buy it for curious. After I using it, it really surprised me! This foundation is the best love for oil skin, it is matte effect, feels like silk, and it lasts nearly 12 hours. It has SPF 15 sunscreen, also I don’t like the smelt, I will consider to buy it.

Moisturizing: ♥♥♥

Oil control: ♥♥♥♥♥

Concealer: ♥♥♥♥

◊ L’OREAL INFALLIBLE FOUNDATION, color: 102

This is a mineral foundation, it is also a matte effect foundation like Tarte. When you apply it for the first hours, it looks perfect. But after few hours, my makeup become dim and yellow. It have good oil control and concealer, if your skin is oil, you can try it because the price is cheap and the product is useful.

Moisturizing: ♥♥♥

From the picture we can see the the color is different, some are light, some are strong. I like to use Jinxie or Tea Party to be the base, and I would use Wattles to be the front of the eye, then I would use Paradox to be the end of the eye.

I recommend Jinxie, Muse and Paradox , these three can be the good partner to be your eye makeup. Since it is winter now, use these three color to be a warm girl! It’s really easy.

colourpop_jinxie004

I use Jinxie to be the base, this color is really warm, it is not too yellow or too silver, Jinxie is a good base.

Tea Party – Metallic warm peach

colourpop_teaparty004

I use Tea Party in 2/3 upper eyelid and 1/3 lower eyelid. This color is shinning than Jinxie, but it can perfectly mixed with Jinxie which makes your eyes melting.

Muse -Metallic rose

wiqh8161-2

I use Muse to emphasize on the 1/3 upper eyelid and 2/3 lower eyelid. This color is kind of rose gold, but it is stronger. It is a good color to be the end of the eyelid.

This is after makeup, isn’t it looks melting now? Let’s do it!
