(Malin+Goetz) Lip Moisturizer.

I tried many lip balm – Chanel, Fresh, Bobbi Brown, Dior etc.. so many !

By far, this (Malin+Goetz) Lip Moisturizer is my favorite, I keep coming back for it in the past two years.

This is what I want from my lip balm – something that keep my lips soft, long-lasting, not super sticky, not waxy, not drying up my lips, keep it moisturized, glossy and smooth….

Many lip balm feels good on lips at the first moment, however, with time, they feel waxy, and they just sit on top of the lips, do nothing to the skin beneath.

What makes this one outstanding is that, it penetrates the skin and keep your lip smooth and moisturized.

So, this is a true MOISTURIZER of lips.

They used to have it in Joyce Beauty (I reside in Hong Kong). Now Malin+Goetz have their online shop and they are also available in some cosmetic shops in Central ( at along Lynhust Terrace, Central)

good luck.

Skinceuticals Physical Fusion UV Defense SPF 50 – Sunscreen + Foundation ?

Have you ever thought of how to reapply sunscreen after you have makeup on? I think about this lately.

I think the best you can do is to get a good sunscreen that is light-weighted enough and can stay on your skin for a longer time.

Sunscreen forms a major part of my skincare routine. Since I used sunscreen two years ago, I see significant improvement in my skin texture. It is even finer than my skin when I was still a teenager.

I use Skinceuticals SPF 50 sunscreen – it is watery in consistency , really light-weighted, non-greasy – that means it can stay on your skin for a long time (may be the whole day) unless you go swimming or do sports.

And the good news is, they have a colored version lately. It is a universal color and it will adjust its color according to the wearer’s skin tone.

It’s a very good substitute for foundation/tinted moisturizer if I go for something sheer and natural-looking for everyday use.

It work best if you allow some time for your moisturizer to be absorbed before applying the sunscreen. It quickly dry up and stay there for long. It is better than the transparent version when I want to have some bronzer on my face. ( because my skin is pink-toned and too light-colored for bronzer to look natural on my bare face )
