BEAUTY JUNKIE RITUALS
Apart from being a self-confessed shopaholic, I'd have to say my next addiction would have to be being a beauty junkie. Well this is driven by years of suffering from bad skin and acne during my youth. And now, I'm just uber addicted to the fact that I have to keep my skin absolutely flawless! Going around Sephora and a few other beauty counters the other day, I think I've found my latest fix. Well, I've been an SKII user for about 4 years now - basically since I moved here to Singapore. It has been a part of my beauty ritual and I honestly can't live with out the Miracle Water. It's only a couple of years back that I started using moisturisers and what have you's since I've always thought they made my skin oily. Well not anymore. Apparently, moisturisers help regulate sebum production so you do need it to make sure your skin won't over compensate. Since then I've been using various SKII moisturisers namely the products you see above. And now, going back to the topic at hand, I tried the latest from Shu Uemura called Tsuya.
I just thought it was an interesting product specially after they gave me a 5 day free trial pack. I just fell in love with the feel and smell of the product [don't judge me! In spite being a marketer myself, I was sold to the sensorials of the product!]. The product claims to restore youthfulness in 7 days - focusing on improving skin tone, smoothness, porelessness [yes I need this!!], translucence, texture and skin colour - so we'll see how it goes in the coming days. For now I'll enjoy this new product and use it like the beauty junkie that I am!
