By Wishtrend's Mandelic Acid 5% Skin Prep Water Review

There are times when I'm really diligent with my skincare and I have multiple steps. Though a lot of the times, I get lazy and my routine is very basic and I use the bare essentials. So during my lazy times, I enjoy using products that pull double duty.

Let me introduce to you By Wishtrend's new prepping water with Mandelic Acid.


This is a new product that was recently released By Wishtrend. Lazy skincare people rejoice! This is a hydrating and nonirritating exfoliant which is suitable for all skin types.

So is this a product worth trying?

BITE BEAUTY Amuse Bouche Liquified Lipstick - Review + Swatches

I consider my first beauty love to be skincare and my second love to be lipsticks. I will admit, I've had a rocky relationship with lipsticks- with the past couple of years I just stopped wearing them. But this year I've found some great lip products that I've been totally obsessed with.

That being said, within the past couple of years, liquid lipsticks have become really popular. Every brand has come out with their own version of a liquid lip.

Most recently, Bite Beauty has come out with their own as well. A liquid version of their Amuse Bouche (which are also incredibly popular).


I've tried a few of their Amuse Bouche in stick form and I really like them. They're pigmented and incredible creamy. I am happy to report that the liquid version is just as amazing!

I'm From - Gingseng Serum Review

As I've gotten older, I've begun placing importance on anti-aging products. Incorporating creams here and there. I'm really off and on with it, even though I know I should use them more often. Luckily, I don't have any wrinkles just yet, but it's never too late to start! Especially now that I'm in my late 20s. It only goes downhill from here!

Ginseng offers a lot of benefits. Aside from brightening and improving skin elasticity, it also offers nourishment for those who have dry and tired skin.


Wishtrend offered to send me their newly released Ginseng Serum from a brand called I'm From.

I've never tried any Ginseng product before, so I wasn't sure what to expect. Of course one of -if not the best known Ginseng serums is Sulwhasoo's First Care Activating Serum. It's the HG for so many people! But for 60ml it's about $105 CAD + taxes. I know, it's incredibly expensive. (I ended up getting one myself, but that's another story).

This serum from I'm From is $28.80 USD for 30ml. How does it fair as a more affordable Ginseng option?

Laneige - Serum Intense Lipstick Review in Sheer Beige

Happy day! I had been searching for this lipstick line by Laneige for years and finally during one of my shopping trips to Pacific Mall, I was able to find it! Not sure why this particular line isn't as popular. Sephora has the two toned lipsticks available, but they don't actually appeal to me. Mainly because they don't look too good on me. 


The lipsticks are available at Laneige/Amore Pacific stores (certain ones. I found this at Market Village right beside Pacific Mall. The actual PMall location only has the two toned lipsticks IOPE). Or Sephora Singapore, which doesn't help me either.

The colour payoff is exactly as they advertise - intense!

Cougar Beauty Products - Anti Oxidant Defence Serum with Hyaluronic Acid Review

I've mentioned it a few times, but I love serums. I love trying new ones and I also enjoy layering them in my skincare. I've realized over the years that relying on just face cream alone just isn't enough. 


If you're not too familiar with Cougar Beauty Products, they're a company that is based in UK and all of their products are manufactured there as well.

Taken from the Cougar Beauty website:
Designed for those who enjoy high quality products and are not prepared to compromise [...] all products are new, edgy, of the highest quality and most importantly, they work [...] all ingredients are sourced locally [...] cruelty free formulas, that are never tested on animals. All of our packaging is recyclable and any mark marketing material is made from recycles material
I really love Cougar Beauty's vision. High quality ingredients are very important, but knowing that their packaging is used from recycled materials, is also an added plus.

As skincare and makeup are becoming incredibly popular, it is nice to know that there are brands out there that focus on quality all the while reducing their carbon footprint as well.
