Beauty Report | May Edit 2/2

beauty report cover.jpg

How’s everyone coping up with the weather? Heatwave in England is just making me go crazy!! There’s a lot going on here from home improvement to my sister-in-law visiting us in July so we’re excited. I’m planning some lifestyle, home improvements and DIY posts too. If you’re interested to check those topics, make sure you hit Follow button on my blog.

I talked about some really amazing products in my Beauty Report 1/2 and as it was a combined post for two months, I had a lot to share with you. If you follow me on my social media, you’d know what are the products I can’t stop sharing.


If there’s one oil that I can apply every single night, it will be this detox oil by Caudalie. This detoxifies the skin overnight and you wake up with clear , brighter skin each morning. This can be used alone or with a moisturizer. This 100% natural concentrate revitalises the skin overnight. This dry oil helps tired skin regenerate itself at night and smooths out lines. The skin is detoxified, the complexion refreshed.

Key ingredients and benefits:

  • Vitamin C (stabilized) – Anti-wrinkle, boosts skin tone
  • Vitamin E – Anti-oxidant, protects sebum and stratum corneum
  • Grape Polyphenols – Anti-oxidant, Anti-wrinkle
  • Picea Extract – Activates micro-circulation and reinforce skin defense system
  • Horse Chestnut – Anti-dark circles
  • Liquorice- Anti-puffiness


If you’re looking for an eye cream that actually works on wrinkles around your eyes, this is it! This eye cream is for people with sensitive skin who are looking for an effective solution to target eye wrinkles and want a luminous, refreshed look. If you have problem of your concealer creasing a lot under your eyes due to the wrinkles, this cream with regular use helps filling those wrinkles. This says it all! I alternate between this targeted treatment eye cream and a hydrating eye cream in my routines.


This lip nourisher is enriched with Mango & Shea Butters, Jojoba & Rice Bran Oils and Vitamin E richly hydrates and seals in moisture. This petroleum-free formula truly hydrates & nourishes your lips and not coat them. I use this every single day for prepping my lips before applying any lipstick. I also use this every alternate evening as a part of my skincare routine.


This cleanser duo from Korean skincare brand Caolion will get you addicted for pore cleansing & tightening effect. The top cleanser (Pore Purifying Steam Foam Cleanser) from the duo has brown sugar  and konjact root which warms up after 10 seconds of application and massaging. This cleanser completely removes all impurities, exfoliates your skin leaving it smooth and nourished after washing the product off your face. This leaves your skin squeaky clean (if that makes sense) and is best suited as a Night time cleanser. I like to use this once a week as this is definitely a father of all cleansers in my skincare stash.

The bottom (Pore Tightening Cooling Foam Cleanser) contains sea salt and clay that has a cooling effect on the skin. This cleanser will soothe your skin, tighten the pores and gently cleanse it. This is more like a morning cleanser as it is very gentle on skin and tightens pores for makeup application.

These cleansers add brightness to my skin and will definitely be a great find for you. This cleanser duo is 100% made in Korea and is available at Boots. It is definitely worth trying.


Inspired by Asian Beauty, this multi-purpose priming lotion prepares the face for skincare and makeup application. This offers long lasting and instant hydration, enhances and extends the wear of moisturizer, serum and foundation for a youthful and radiant complexion.

The lotion utilises water sensors and AQUA-MX Technology, which work in synergy to deliver instant and long-lasting hydration to the complexion. The Essence is also enriched with NCTF®, a medicine-derived polyrevitalising complex, which works to regenerate skin and reveal a youthful and radiant complexion.

This can be applied on to clean skin either with fingers or with cotton pad. I personally like to saturate cotton pad with this lotion and then apply on to my face. This essential immediately plumps up my skin and preps for makeup as well as skincare. This is suitable for all skin types.


These silky, smooth, peach oil infused lip glosses smell and taste like fresh picked peaches. These lip glosses are infused with essence of peach, coconut oil and vitamin E to keep lips soft, moisturized and nourished. Staying power is pretty good for a gloss. The finish is shiny and not sticky at all. The shade range is more on peaches and nudes. Papa don’t peach me is my favourite among the lot.


This vitamin packed cleanser can be used daily for a clean, refreshed and brighter complexion. This cleanser neutralizes the impact of the environment and its pollutants on skin by removing impurities, restoring radiance and optimal skin health. This uses Vitamins A, C and E are powerful antioxidants to defend skin from free radical damage while infusing it with essential nutrients. It also awakens the senses with the fresh clean scent of Mandarin Orange, Basil and Grapefruit and restores natural radiance and maximum skin health, while binding moisture to dehydrated skin.

Foil finish chrome nails have been all over social media lately. Barry M released show stopping molten metal nail polishes earlier this year and are definitely a hit range. The nails shine like mirror and glisten for weeks. I love the longevity of these nail paints and these are so affordable for how these look. This is a total luxury at affordable price. Bronze Bae and Pink Ice are my favourite shades from this range and I wore these all the time while I was on my holiday. I see myself wearing these all the summer.

What have you been loving lately? Let me know in the comments below.

Until next time..
