CLIO Kill Cover Airwear Protexture Foundation has an ultra light skin-perfecting fluid that is said to be the 1st-of-its-kind mineral foundation and skincare serum in one. CLIO’s exclusive Air Touch Technology promises an ultra soft, airy touch as it glides onto skin perfectly. Infused with 43% essence and a blend of velvet polymer ingredients, it feels more like a lightweight serum than makeup. It is so light, it blends seamlessly like a second skin.

This CLIO serum fluid foundation gives my skin a radiant and healthy glow. The moisture capture formula provides abundant moisture that helps reduce the fine lines on the back of my hand. The unique mineral pigments have a lifting effect while covering imperfections and visibly erasing signs of tiredness.

Kill Cover Airwear Protexture Foundation comes with a unique flat top brush – with a hole in the middle – which you can pour a few drops of the foundation into it and then apply it onto the face. However, the foundation is pretty runny that it sinks to the bottom of the brush head immediately.

Althea Korea 1st Birthday Celebration – Giveaways and Exciting Prizes To Be Won

Ever heard of Althea Korea, a premier online beauty store where you can get your favourite K-Beauty products at great prices? If you a bargain hunter like me and is a fan of Korean makeup/skincare, you should waste no time and go check them out.

Who’s  Althea Korea

Thanks to the Korean Wave (known as “Hallyu” or 한류in Korean), people all around the world are crazy about Korean entertainment, dramas, cultures, food and even Korean skincare and makeups.

However, we all know that buying Korean makeups and skincare here isn’t exactly as cheap as it would be in Korea itself.

Hence, Althea was founded in June 2015 to bridge authentic K-Beauty to us here in South East Asia. It prides itself as a one-stop shopping destination where their consumers can enjoy comprehensive authentic K-Beauty products (think Laneige, Innisfree, Etude House, IOPE, Missha, VDL, 3CE etc etc) at the lowest possible price, and have their items delivered right up to their doorsteps.

What singles out Althea Korea from the rest of the online stores?

Besides their Free Delivery (for order above S$50), Best Price Policy and 30-day Unconditional Refund/Returns, Althea also has Authenticity Guarantee on their products to assure their customers that all products are personally handpicked and purchased directly from brand owners and reputable suppliers. This not only ensures the authenticity of the products but the quality as well.

If any of their products is confirmed to be non-authentic, Althea will honour a return at any time and refund 200% of the purchase value.

[Review] PCA Skin Active Broad Spectrum SPF 45

 

It’s mid of the year now and the weather has turned really burning hot lately. I’m so afraid of sun damage hence I will make sure to apply sunscreen on my face, neck and even my upper eyelid before I ever leave the house. It is one skincare product I can’t leave without whether if it’s rain or shine.

When it comes to rating sunscreens, there are two things I will look out for – it has to contain potent UVA sunscreen ingredients and also with high PA rating. I’m always on the lookout for good sunscreen products and I have recently found one.

PCA Skin active broad spectrum spf 45

Quite a while ago, I’ve received the PCA Skin Active Broad Spectrum SPF 45 and I was delighted to give it a try.

PCA Skin, founded by an aesthetician in 1990, is a product line that is only available at doctor’s office in Singapore. I’m pleased to learn that every PCA Skin’s SPF-rated product actually provides reliable broad-spectrum sun protection. I got to know about this brand at an aesthetics practitioner’s office many years ago. The first PCA Skin product I’ve tested is PCA Skin ExLinea Peptide Smoothing Serum, click HERE to read my review.
