If you’re fashion, style, or beauty obsessed like me, you’re probably aware of some products that are more commonly use. You’ve probably seen them all over Instagram, or sold in like our local drug store. Just wanted to share that now you can find it in myCK too.
Nivea Anti-Perspirant Extra Whitening
Raise your hands if sometimes you feel afraid to wear sleeveless clothing because you are afraid people might notice your dark underarm? Fret not, i use to think it that way, but nah. i found Nivea Anti-Perspirant Extra Whitening. Personally, i have been using this for close to a year or so, and hence when i saw this at myCK i was like ok this is definitely something worth to share. This deodorant has a very subtle, long lasting clean scent that I absolutely adore. How should i say it, to me it smells bit like baby powder, very refreshing and clean smell. It truly stands to its name to gain considerable advantage over the rest. This deodorant gives me visibly fairer and smoother underarms by helping repair and renewal of skin cells day by day.
Himalaya Herbals Purifying Neem Scrub
We have to clean our face no less than twice day by day with a specific end goal to evacuate the dead cells that get aggregated on the skin and furthermore expel clogged pores and pollutions. Exfoliating our face is the basic to keep the skin smooth and free from clogged pores and pimples. I have heard many good reviews on this scrub and personally this is the first time I’m trying it. So let me bring you thru. For those who have not heard of Himalaya, they are quite a renown brand for skincare. Himalaya products are herbal and vegetarian too which means that they are free from chemicals as they have fewer side effects. Himalaya’s Purifying Neem Scrub removes impurities and dead skin cells. It also cleanses excess oil from the skin’s surface, which is the root cause of acne. The scrub is blended with the goodness of Neem, which clears blackheads and acne, and Apricot, which hydrates the skin. The natural ingredients cleanse, nourish and moisturize your skin to make it soft, fresh and radiant. Do note that it can only be use once a week.
Hada Labo Mild Peeling (AHA + BHA) Face Wash
Personally i love Hada Labo, i find that it is a great gentle, exfoliating face wash that does not leave me dry. Its a thick like shave cream but foams up nicely so lasts a long time. Infused with some keratin softening agents like AHA and BHA, which help to remove blackheads and impurities inside pores. It also improves dull skin tone and rough texture, leaving skin supple and smooth. Take note that it is fragrance free, and free from alcohol and mineral oil. If u are on a budget, this is a dam effective face wash for it’s price range.
[Note: For those that don’t know what is AHA & BHA;
AHAs – alpha hydroxy acids – work on the surface of the skin, gently dissolving the bonds between dead skin cells so that they can be easily removed, making way for a softer and smoother surface.
BHAs – beta hydroxy acid – more commonly known as salicylic acid. Because it is oil-soluble it can penetrate beneath the skin’s surface, cleaning out excess sebum from the pores and reducing oiliness.]
Sunplay Super Block SPF 130
SPF refers to the ability of a sunscreen to block ultraviolet B (UVB) rays, which cause sunburns, but not UVA rays, which are more closely linked to deeper skin damage. Both UVA and UVB contribute to the risk of skin cancer. Not only it has a High SPF130 PA++++ protection, it also have the Japan ‘Watery Liquid’ formulation is lightweight, non-greasy and transparent on skin. What i like about this sunscreen is that it’s fragrance free. I’ve use some sunscreen lotion with the usual “sunblock” smell. I can’t describe it, but those that actually tried different brands, i guess you somehow will figure out what i meant. I have notice quite a number of people when they apply sunscreen, it produces this white cast over their skin. The proper way is to apply two tablespoons (about 2 squeeze) of sunscreen to the exposed areas of the face and body – a gentle squeeze around the size of a 50-cent sized coin to the face alone.
