Oskia Pure MSM Beauty Mineral

Posted on

A targeted food supplement to nutritionally support skin, hair and nail condition.

Feeds the skin from the inside with the most bio-available form of sulphur to strengthen the skin’s support structure to help prevent premature ageing, skin damage and keep skin strong, supple and healthy.

Helps detoxify the skin by keeping it soft, porous and supple.

Visibly improves skin, hair and nail condition.

MSM has traditionally been taken to support healthy cartilage and collagen production. Healthy collagen production can reduce the signs of premature aging and keep skin looking younger and healthier.

I am currently taking this as a skin supplement. I haven’t noticed much improvement in my skin conditions yet but I can assure you that your fart is gonna be stinging ( that distinctive hydrogen sulfide smell ).

Jurlique Fruit Enzyme Exfoliator

Posted on

A highly effective fruit-based facial treatment that helps to exfoliate skin with natural enzymes and indigenous Australian extracts of Desert Lime, Quandong and Wattle, creating a visibly smoother and revitalised complexion.

This wash-away exfoliating gel is jam-packed with a bevy of beautifying ingredients such as;

Quandong and Desert Lime, both high in vitamin C and essential fatty acids which help to assist with gentle exfoliation, improving the texture and complexion of the skin;

Apple, which helps to brighten dull complexions;

Natural Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs): lactic, malic and citric acid to promote cell turnover leaving you in possession of a brighter, clearer complexion;

Willow bark extract that improves tone and texture;

Prickly Pear stem and Green Tea leaf, which are pumped full of antioxidants and humectants, to hydrate and promote firmer skin.

I had used this a few times and I think it’s a rather potent exfoliator ( use with caution ). It really brightens up my skin tone and smoothes my complexion after single usage.

The best thing is it gets rid of blemishes at almost overnight! Those inflamed blemishes caused by M.A.C mineralize skinfinish were merely noticeable bumps the next morning after I used it as facial treatment.

Try not to overdo this as I do notice some flakiness & dryness after 2 daily consecutive uses ( Well, I was desperate to nib off those cystic acne )

I also use it post shaving / tweezing to reduce those annoying ingrown hair problems!

Paper Bag

I wouldn’t mind using paper bags if only they are this chic.

Otherwise, I want leather; I don’t do plastic, I could consider canvas……

M.A.C Mineralize Skinfinish

Posted on

A luxurious domed face powder with minerals, slowly baked to provide a dimensional yet natural-matte finish. Provides perfect low coverage.

It contains vitamin A and E derivatives, which buffer the skin from environmental aggression. It is also enriched with jojoba oil, which calms and soothes the skin.

Since Mineralize Skinfinish Natural is a “setting powder”, it is not designed for high coverage. It provides a low coverage for the pores, freckles, and blemishes.

The powder has a micro-fine texture but could appears powdery if applied heavy handed, although the ultimate finish is still rather sheer.

It would delivers a natural matte finish but lacks the oil controlling ability, within 2 hours, I could see some oily breakthrough over my T zones. It does require few touch-ups to control excessive shine and oiliness throughout the day.

Worse still, it irritates my skin and causes me to break out. ( Trust me, I had tried this on 3 occasions, each time started with my clear, blemish free complexion; within 3 days of daily application, I ended up with few spots on my face, especially my cheek, where I don’t usually get spots ! )

It contains Talc, Dimethicone, and Bismuth Oxyhloride.

Consider yourself warned !

My inner bag-hag had been telling me that I need this for casual occasions.

I like the idea of half leather half suede bag, I call it my schizo bag.
