Often, when I show you my skincare routine either here on the blog or on Instagram, one item tends to catch the attention of most. The facial mist. The most common question I get is “What does it do? Is it even necessary?”

I thought it would be a good time to address this.

I’ll share my thoughts about why I use facial mists or facial sprays, and how I use them, and you can tell me then if it’s something you use, or if it’s just a waste of time for you 🙂 No right or wrong rules here, people! I’ll also quickly run down the ones I have here and share some thoughts on why I like them (or don’t). I have a few others that I’ve used, but no longer have the bottles. If I can remember what they are, I’ll include them in the list 🙂 So, hang on tight, here we go!

I am going to be trite and say this “I cannot believe that we are halfway through February 2018!” Is it me, or is 2018 flying by a little too quickly for comfort? Slow down! I want to cry. And I guess I will have some time to slow down soon, with the Lunar New Year festivities upon us.

This year, the barking Dog chases the Rooster out of our home, and I will be taking a few days off, as I do at this time of year, to celebrate the festivities and spend time at home with the family. Incidentally, if you want to stay in touch with blog posts, you can sign up here for a weekly email that goes out with a compilation of that week’s blog posts, so you don’t have to miss out on any future posts!

But before I leave you for the festivities, I wanted to quickly share some things I’ve been loving, that I think you might love too! Or at least, some things you can save your ang pow money for 😀 I’ve made sure that they’re (mostly) permanent products because I despise the limited edition push to buy NOW, as much as anyone else.

There are a couple of items that I may elaborate on in future review (holler, if there is one you want to see in greater depth!) but I wanted to make sure I told you about these things, some of which I’ve been using for months now, and thoroughly loving to bits! 😀

This one’s coming up by very popular demand, ever since I put a picture on Instagram a while ago. This is primarily because I absolutely loved the Hada Labo Premium Hydrating Lotion (which I still use! It’s very good, very hydrating, good value and easily accessible for us, which matters).

Naturally therefore, everyone’s wondering if this Hada Labo Premium Hydrating Cream is as wonderful?

The Hada Labo Premium Hydrating Cream is the counterpart to my favourite Premium Hydrating Lotion. Like the lotion, this contains 5 types of Hyaluronic Acid – Hyaluronic Acid for a moisture retention barrier, Super Hyaluronic Acid with 2 times the moisture retention capacity, Nano Hyaluronc Acid to penetrate deeply into the skin to provide moisture deep down, Absorbent Hyaluronic Acid that allows it to stay on skin through sweat or washing and 3D Hyaluronic Acid that binds together to form a 3D moisture net wrapping the skin to provide long lasting moisture retention.

On top of all that, the Hada Labo Premium Hydrating Cream contains 3 types of ceramides to strengthen the skin moisture barrier, which helps keep skin moist and supple.

It all sounds pretty amazing, if you ask me. But the more important question is this – how does it fare?

In the Chanel Neapolis Spring Summer 2018 collection, I have against my principles, identified one “must have” item

If there’s one thing I try to refrain from saying is “This is a must-have!” Truthfully, very few things are, especially when it’s something from the luxury designer houses. Ok, perhaps a Chanel Classic Flap is a must have in a bag collection. If you don’t have to rob a bank to get it LOL!

But I digress.

That said, I am going to go out on a limb today, to tell you that there is one, just ONE item, from the Chanel Neapolis Spring-Summer 2018 makeup collection that I think is a must-have. I say this loosely of course. If you are in the market for something nice, that is really good quality, you could do worse.

The only problem is that it’s a limited edition product, and because I received these only very recently, I don’t know if they are still available in store or at counters. But if you do decide to hop along and take a look, then look at these.

Where makeup collections released for Spring tend to be rather insipid, pink, pastel things, I love how Chanel has taken the bold approach to bring colour into the still dreary days of winter. For us here in the tropics, it’s always sunny so this is a collection that is right up our alley! Inspired by creative director Lucia Pica’s hometown, Naples, Chanel Neapolis is a burst of colour, combining interesting textures and lifting the spirits.

So, what is this one item that I hope you are able to get your hands on? 😉

I shouldn’t be embarrassed about being a beauty blogger, so why am I made to feel this way?

I feel a disturbance in the Force.*

It’s a disturbance that has been bubbling under the surface for years, and is now bubbling over. It is a disenchantment with how information is getting out, and being received, and is a direct result of the rise in use of social media, in particular, Instagram.

blogger embarrassment

There is a rising disenchantment among users of Instagram who bond within the beauty community, that there is a growing lack of transparency, honesty, information and sharing. There is an element of greed, and self-entitlement among many who strive to be noticed and be rewarded by the beauty brands, and this sits ill with those who truly have an interest in the genre.

Speaking from the viewpoint of a blogger (I have too small a following on Instagram to merit any standing, but at least I know it’s not padded) I’ve seen this same thing happen in the blogging community a little while ago. The difference now, is that anyone with a blog, or who has an instagram account, suddenly gets tarred with the same brush.

All bloggers and influencers are liars and sell-outs – the rabble cries, and shake their pitchforks in the light of torches. Sigh.
