Your Say: Is makeup primer a must-have for you? What is your favourite?

When I started out learning about makeup and how to use it, I stumbled upon this thing called a “primer”. It all made sense, when put in a painting context – you prime your walls, before you apply your paint. It helps the paint stick better, and last longer, and creates a smoother finish. When I had my walls painted, I made sure they put on a primer too! LOL!

But, what d’ya know? That’s what makeup primer does too! We discussed this once right here on the blog, but that was way back in 2012 – a lot has changed in 5 years! Or has it?

If you watch YouTube videos and try to learn about makeup, primer is always used. If you have oily skin, primer is recommended to keep the skin oil-free for longer. If you have visible pores, primer helps create a smooth finish.

Yet, how often do you use a makeup primer? Or rather, do you use any at all? 😀

I don’t generally have sensitive or easily irritated skin, but sometimes, I do silly things to my skin that results in my skin throwing a fit. This usually results in bumpy, dry and flaky skin for me. What I’ve learned to do then, is to take it easy.

I went through one such episode recently, and unearthed from my stash the Melvita Apiscoma UHT Soothing Cream, a product I fell in love with and knew I just had to tell you about it!

Melvita is a brand you may be familiar with. It’s a French brand of certified organic skincare, with its roots in honey and the bee. My favourite product from them has been the Floral Water Mist, which is lovely, soothing and hydrating, and I also liked their Nectar Supreme La Creme moisturiser.

While the Nectar Supreme La Creme is a good cream, I do think it serve a better purpose for those with more matured skin (and slightly deeper pockets). This Apiscoma UHT Soothing Cream however, is suitable for most, and especially, those with sensitive skin or those undergoing a bout of sensitivity – it happens! 🙂

Good skincare is better than hiding behind a mask of makeup.”

Wise words, from Mathilde Thomas, founder of French skincare brand, Caudalie, when asked for her approach to beauty. I had the privilege of meeting this tall, elegant lady in the beautiful setting of Flutes, at the National Museum of Singapore, during her visit to the region, and it was insightful and inspiring.

Now that we all have our skincare in place, brands are coming up with boosters. These are usually products, like serums, that perform a specific function – to give your skin that boost it needs, based on what you need.

Bobbi Brown launched 6 of these targeted solutions, depending on what your skin needs. I know it feels like we were just talking about Bobbi Brown yesterday, but that was a bit of an impromptu post haha!

bobbi brown remedies

The Bobbi Brown Remedies come in 6 versions, to target 6 different skin problems you may face. They are:-

  • Skin Clarifier No. 75 – to target pores and blemishes, to balance oil and to unclog and clarify pores
  • Skin Reviver No. 91 – for dull, tired skin, to energize skin and protect from environmental aggressors
  • Skin Moisture Solution No. 86 – for dry, parched skin to help increase skin moisture factor
  • Skin Fortifier No. 93 – for loss of elasticity, to help repair skin barrier
  • Skin Relief No. 80 – for redness and irritated skin, to calm and quiet your irritated skin
  • Skin Salve No. 57 – for chapped and cracked skin, to protect and provide a barrier to help skin heal

A few months ago, I was sent a limited edition Bobbi Brown Remedies Recovery Rescue Kit mini set with 3 little samples, so I could have a go at them, to see what I thought. These mini sets are available for sale for a limited time in stores, so ask if they still have them, if you’re interested. As for me, here’s what I thought, after I’m almost finished with these – figured I better get going, before I had nothing left to photograph! LOL! 😀

Stumbled on the new Bobbi Brown Beauty From The Inside Out book – her new venture!

I’d been curious about what Bobbi Brown has been up to since she left her eponymous brand last year. The news was that she was taking a break and working on something new.

Well, I’ve just come across news of what her new project is – a new book and approach to beauty in Beauty From the Inside Out.

I believe it’s just launched last month, and no, I don’t have it but unlike most beauty books, this is something I think I might want to buy and have a read, because she speaks about beauty coming from the inside – what you eat, your lifestyle choices, health etc and that’s something I can get behind 🙂

I’ve inserted below a couple of videos I came across about this book, that I found interesting, that you might too 🙂

There is much about the limited edition Jo Malone Star Magnolia fragrance that will leave you starry-eyed

The first time I laid eyes on the brand new and limited edition Jo Malone Star Magnolia cologne, I knew it would be a winner. How many perfume bottles do you see that come with a beautiful paper flower ruff, and better yet, in a very visually appealing, instagram-friendly WHITE GRADIENT bottle?

The bottle has a white gradient (vs clear), topped with a white cap (instead of silver as per usual) and with a white label (vs black). The thick, paper flower ruff around the neck of the bottle adds to its visual appeal, and I’m told that it will settle eventually, like a gently blooming flower.

Apt description, for the Jo Malone Star Magnolia fragrance is decidedly floral.
