Phanie's Prized Products: June 2011 Edition

Missing my monthly favorites? Yeah, I skipped May's faves because it was the same as my April faves. However, this month I have other new faves, hence, another monthly faves. 

 Skin Aqua UV Mild Milk SPF 25/PA ++ 
I have been blabbering about this stuff for days and weeks ever since I got this. I guess it's not a big surprise that this is one of my June faves. It has good SPF of 25, non-greasy texture, almost has a matte finish and has an affordable price. 

 TheFaceShop Herb Day Bubble Foam Cleanser Olive Leaf 
I have been using this for a month as a part of my skin care routine. It's not the best cleanser I used, but this is the only thing that doesn't make my skin flake even more when it's dry. It has a foam-ish. bubble texture that feels so soft on the skin. The downside is the price tag, retailing at IDR 189,000 at most TFS counters. 

 Paula's Choice Skin Recovery Super Antioxidant Concentrate 
Since I'm back on Retin-A, my skin has been flaking like crazy. This is the only thing strong enough to give me back moisture, hence reducing the appearance of dry, flaky skin. I like how it just sinks right into my face and giving back moisture. Plus, the ingredients are beneficial for the skin.

 Rudy Hadisuwarno Styling Foam Strong 
Earlier this month, I decided to cut my hair into a short shag. The fringe is bothering me, so I bought a hair styling mousse. It's cheap and it works. That's all I need. Also, it stayed all day without messing my hair. 

 NYX HD Photogenic Concealer in Beige 
With my skin flaking this month, I skipped BB creams/foundations and use only concealer. I like the thin texture and how easy it blends. It's great in concealing the redness around the edges of my nose, mouth and cheeks. The shade is a perfect match for my skintone.

 Ecotools Fluffy Eye Blending Brush 
I saw Pixiwoo use this type of brush for applying concealer, so I tried it and loving the results. It looks more blended than using my fingers and more natural. I just take the concealer on the back of my hand , dab a little amount of concealer on the brush and just apply it to the wanted area of the face.

 Holika Holika Face 2 Change Liquid Roller BB SPF 15/PA +
My friend just got back from Korea and she got me this BB cream. It has a thicker texture compared to Shills super magic bb cream, but once blended it has more coverage and looks natural. 

 Lunasol Loose Powder in Natural Beige 
I found this powder at the back of my vanity drawer, old and forgotten. Well, not THAT old. I bought it around 6 months ago with a friend at the Kanebo beauty workshop. I've been using it again, but with a different application. Back then, I used a powder brush, but this time I used the puff that came with it. Afterwards, I just used a powder brush to sweep off the excess powder on my face. It creates a smooth, even-toned and matte looking face. 

Vaseline Healthy White SPF 24/PA++
I don't know whether this has been in my favorites or not, but I have been using this all the time this month. It feels really light, moisturizing and non greasy on my skin. The scent is a little bit annoying at first, but I got used to it after several usages.

If you noticed the changes in my pictures, I am trying a different approach to it. It might look a bit un-adjusted right now, but I'm working on it. So, maybe the future pictures may be better.
