Ever since my KL trip I came back stalking Etude outlets for the remaining 2 All Over Color. No such luck as one of it was always out of stock.
Weirdly though I managed to score some items each time. The Husband did some damages too but they were very affordable.
I've got the Baby Choux Base in Mint and Berry. Now I'm praying these base wouldn't give me geisha look. I've used the Berry once and I like the texture. Geisha wise.. maybe need some effort.
However, I finally found the remaining 2!!! Now complete is my collection. Probably weekend is a good time to experiment. Have been sad and tired due to some sad events in life.
Perhaps better times coming soon :)
Step 1: After your skincare routine, pump out a dime-sized amount of the serum and spread it evenly onto the face, starting with your forehead, cheeks, chin, and nose. Use your fingertips to massage thoroughly.
When massaging, please remember to close your eyes and breathe deeply to smell the scent of the essential oils. Wash your face with lukewarm water the following morning.

Another item from my Taiwan trip :)
I remember I was super excited at one of the Watsons outlet because I saw the entire Naruko range there. Spent quite some time browsing and deciding what to buy, because it was sale time (thank you thank you so lucky I was there when many outlets were having sales); many items are either on discount or Buy 1 Free 1 :D
I didn't have time to browse the internet for reviews on this, but I thought it looked good. I have to try it. And boy I'm glad I did!
Ok let me gush about the scent first. If I were to rate what I like most about this serum, it would be the scent. Each time I apply this, I am reminded of Wesak's Day. You know the fragrant floral water that devotees use to bathe the Buddha? Yes this smells just like that. I love it! Its so relaxing.
I use about 3-4 pumps for face and neck. This milky lotion is very easy to absorb, and didn't make my face shiny. No breakouts too. I only use this for day time. I'm already done with the serum :( Lasted me about 1.5 months of once a day use.
Now for the brightening effect.. I think it does help a little. Because I've been too slack with the sunscreen (don't ask why, don't shriek too - just another episode of crappy sunscreens and I don't know what other ways to finish them before I open a new one). So, I've been without sunscreen for probably 2-3 months or more now? Sun exposure as usual - lunch time glaring sun for say 3-5 mins? Irregular though.
I didn't develop any new dark spots. While I didn't turn into luminuous Snow White, not getting new dark spots seems kinda great. Right?
Couldn't vouch for firming though, because I've been quite consistant in massage and sagging haven't come visiting :P
I will most probably repurchase this again because I really love the scent. Ahhh.
By the way, the glass bottle is quite heavy and its not easy to gauge the content inside. So I am unlikely to take this along for travels.

I got these when the news of Vichy pulling out of Malaysia came to my knowledge. They were on buy 1 free 1 clearance.
This is a fine cleanser. On my bare faced days I use this both day and night. It doesn't rinse well though.. I think it is meant to be wiped off with tissue. But I don't like using tissue, or no rinsing (icky); so my trusted dampened muslin cloth it is.. After cleansing my skin really does not feel tight or dry.
I'm not comfortable with just using this alone when I have my BB cream or foundation on. I find it still leaves some residue on.. However this is my go to cleanser in the morning when I do not want to strip off too much oil from my skin.
I've since finished one tube, and am wondering if I would repurchase this again (overseas that is..). I'm not exactly loyal to facial cleansers.. but I really do like this one quite a bit.
