DHC Mild Soap

At long last hubby and I finished the gigantic tube of Origins Plantscriptions Anti-Aging Cleanser. I mean, it only took the two of us two sweet years =.=" So I started us on this deluxe 30g travel size of DHC Mild Soap I found while clearing out our medicine cabinet. Yes, this soap is the one from the Olive Essentials Travel Set I bought ten years ago. Woops ^.^"

CLE Cosmetics Melting Cleanser

Was done with Nature Republic Forest Garden Cleansing Oil Argan a couple of weeks ago and this 120mL/4.05fl. oz. pump bottle of CLE Cosmetics Melting Cleanser jumped my queue yet again, because it's expiring in the next couple of months ^.^"

Suqqu 15th Anniversary Lipstick

Last fall, Suqqu celebrated their 15th Anniversary with a small collection with two Color Compacts, each with one cream and two powder eye shadows, and one powder blush, and five mini lipsticks, all came adorned with a Swarovski crystal charm. The two Color Compacts were orange-red and pink-berry themed and were too loud for my taste, but two of the mini lipsticks did catch my eyes even though they were supposedly the brand's "first" semi-matte lippies (really?): 104 贅紅 (Zeibeni) Soul Red and 105 墨苺 (Sumiichigo) Deep Berry.

Lipstick Queen Belle Epoque

These Lipstick Queen Belle Epoque went on sale last summer (and have since been discontinued) and on impulse I picked up Belle Wine along with two All That Jazz lipsticks and a Saint Mauve (will review later).

Nivea Smooth Daily Moisture Body Lotion

Half way through this 500mL/16.9fl. oz. bottle of Nivea Smooth Daily Moisture Body Lotion Shea Butter (now Shea Daily Moisture Body Lotion) so here's a quick review.


I didn't know what to expect with this body lotion but ended up liking it quite a bit! I really enjoy the lovely, soothing scent with a touch of sweetness, though they could definitely tone it down a bit. I think the texture is impressive, a thin lotion that's super smooth and goes on like silk. Too bad the moisture is also on the light side, which happens to be perfect for spring, summer, and fall, but I definitely need something thicker for the winter. Now I'm curious to try other half a dozen of different Nivea body moisturizer ^.^

Lipstick Queen All That Jazz

These Lipstick Queen All That Jazz lipsticks were my impulse buys last summer. I knew they had shimmers and with moderate pigmentation, not quite the Sinner-level 90% pigment but definitely more pigmented than the Saints. Then again, I remembered that Dancing Queens were among my favorite lipsticks and they were chock full of shimmers, and the Liptropolis were also more pigmented than I'd prefer but I loved those too. So into my basket Hot Piano and Paint the Town went.

Lunasol Full Glamour Lips Part V

Last summer, I got a bit nostalgic again for Lunasol and picked up a few more Full Glamour Lips in the colors 43 Autumn Coral, 44 Autumn Orange, and 46 Soft Brown Red released fall 2017.

Yes, I did remember that they'd changed the formula of these lipsticks beginning the fall of 2016 when hubby and I were still in Tokyo. Yes, I did also expect  that these would all be creams with semi-opaque satin finish. I was really hoping the colors I picked would make them wearable all the same.

Bioderma ABCDerm Cold Cream Nourishing Body Cream

Been using this 200mL/6.67fl. oz. tube of Bioderma ABCDerm Cold Cream Nourishing Body Cream off and on since the beginning of April. The weather was warming up and I thought a moisturizer lighter than CeraVe would be nice for my little one on his arms and legs, so naturally I tested it on myself first ^.^

Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Targeted Sun Defense Stick SPF50 PA+++

So far I've tried four sun sticks, Mentholatum Skin Aqua Perfect UV Stick which I keep in my car, Hanyul White Chrysanthemum Matte Sunscreen Stick which I ended up giving to my mum and she likes it a lot, Mamonde Everyday Sun Stick which is in my bathroom cabinet for touch-ups, and this 6.8g Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Targeted Sun Defense Stick SPF50 PA+++ I keep in my bag, because it fits ^.^

Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Blooming Lip Balm

After Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Summer Lip Glow turned out to be a big dud, I stopped paying attention to anything Bronze Goddess. When have I ever cared for bronzers anyway? And then I was flipping through Instagram last year and spotted this gorgeous orange lippie. Upon looking further, I learned it was a Bronze Goddess Blooming Lip Balm from the 2018 summer collection. It even came in the same textured gold tube. I couldn't resist the fiery orange so I picked it up ^.^"

Canmake Juicy Lady Liquid Cheek

Last year, on a whim I picked up these Canmake Juicy Lady Liquid Cheek in 01 Rose Pop, 02 Mango Orange, and 03 Apple Cherry.

I'm still collecting the Balm Rouges and the Cream Cheeks, but it's been a really long time since I bought any liquid cheek product from Canmake. The last was the Whip Mousse Lip 04 Foggy Cherry in December 2012, which was actually a multi-purpose product for lips and cheeks but they were so awesome on the cheeks I never bothered using them on the lips. So of course these Liquid Cheeks caught my eyes when they came out. I was hoping for something similar to the Whip Mousse Lips that I love (and still use!).

Origins Make a Difference Plus Rejuvenating Treatment

After Origins Make a Difference Plus Rejuvenating Moisturizer, I moved on to this tiny 5mL/0.17fl. oz. tube of Rejuvenating Treatment in the same lineup. I read on Origins' website that it's a gel, versus the Moisturizer being a cream, so I queued it to use after the moisturizer. It's getting warmer and warmer these days, so I'm slowly moving into a lighter moisturizer for daytime.

Clarins Hand and Nail Treatment Cream

Some time ago, I picked up this 30mL/1oz. tube of Clarins Hand and Nail Treatment Cream Lemon Leaf as a cart filler. Turns out it's now my favorite item in the whole order! I wish I'd picked up a few more tubes, or at least try the other different scents. Now that they've discontinued these scents, I guess it's E(vil)bay time :(
