Phanie's Prized Products : November Edition

Hello, my dearies!

I'm really sorry I'm late at posting my 'prized products' of the month, but here it is! 

Olay Total Effects Foaming Cleanser
I have been using this all month for my ‘combination’ skin, I have dry patches on the edges of my nose and mouth. I have a separate review on this HERE.

Daiso Silicone Scrub
I got this at Daiso Artha Gading Mall and used it together with the Olay foaming cleanser to exfoliate the dead skin cells on my face. After using this, I feel an instant boost of freshness and instant brightening.

e.l.f. Studio Line Powder Face Brush
This has been my all time favorite face brush because it is a flat top brush.  I use this to apply my liquid foundation, BB cream and especially mineral powders.

Batiste Dry Shampoo in Original
I have tried the one in Blush and loving that so much. However, I then decided to try out the original scent and it was the same love that I felt for the other version. It gives me fluffy and bouncy looking hair even after two days of not washing my hair.

Citra Lasting White Extra
This is a local brand for body lotions that helps in moisturizing my extra dry arms. It smells really nice and floral, but the most important part is the price is cheap as it is a drugstore brand. The size is also compact which makes it easier to carry around in my bag.

Paula’s Choice 2% Beta Hydroxy Acid Lotion
I have been busy this month and haven’t had a chance to go for a facial session to get my blackheads extracted. Therefore, I have been breaking out like crazy because they’re stuck there in my pores. This helped me control those yellow, little pus-filled creatures we all know as acne because it contains 2% salicylic acid which is good news for our skin and bad news for acne.

Etude House Collagen Moistfull Emulsion
Lately, my skin has not as oily as they used to be because I’m using Tretinoin as a night cream which has side effects of dryness. I decided to pick this up because it contains collagen which makes a better moisturizer for people with dry skin types. I am in love with this emulsion because the ingredients are safe and it’s not as heavy as other emulsions targetted for dry skin. I use this for my combination/oily/acne prone skin and actually seen a difference in reduction of acne.

Etude House Collagen Moistfull Esscence
Since Etude House had a sale promotion for ‘Buy 1, Get 1’ items, I picked the essence and got the emulsion. The essence is extremely helpful when my skin is having a very bad day of flaking everywhere. This does not have a sticky feeling after it has been absorbed into my skin. This has also helped me reduce my acne occurrence.

Skin Food Peach Sake Sun Lotion SPF 32/PA++
The best sunscreen of the month as it doesn’t have that sunscreen smell and thick texture. It is very fluid, smells like peach and leaves a natural finish on my face. It’s not as matte nor dewy, but just right in between.

O.P.I Nail Lacquer in Malaysian Mist
I have been into nudes lately, but this has been my favorite this month. It’s not too beige nude, but gives a slight peachy pink color to my nails.

GNC Women’s Hair, Skin & Nails Formula
I am not quite fond of vegetables and fruits, so I decided to consume supplements that will helps in maintaining and fulfilling the recommended daily intake of each vitamin and minerals.
Etude House Cleansing Dream Fresh Cleansing Water
As I have started working this month, often times I found myself too tired to even wash my face at night. I know it’s important to always have a clean and moisturized face before you sleep, but come on, haven’t you had one of those days? I love this because it does the cleaning job excellently and also act as a toner. I limit myself to only washing my face twice a day, so when I’m feeling icky and dirty at six p.m., this is the product that I always reach for to cleanse my whole face.

SKIN79 The Prestige Diamond or L’egere White Multi BB
These two are the ones I reach for every day this month. If I wanted a brighter and matte looking face, I will use the SKIN79. If I wanted to have a brighter and dewy looking complexion, L’egere is the one I will be using.

Nivea Essentials Lip Balm
A drugstore worthy lip balm that helps to hydrate my lips. I use this every night after I finished applying my night moisturizer.  Since I am sleeping in an air-conditioned room, it’s best to maintain the moisture in my skin and lips.
