Nett Wt:30ml
Scent: Fresh floral
Price: Boots sales, about 250 baht
Texture: Gel

I like the packaging, solid in a glass bottle with a pump. Not heavy me thinks.
The smell is really refreshing. I only use this at night so far, and am on my way finishing it.

Its gel texture is easy to spread on, but I find some sticky feel if I apply this in a rush. And it would sting on "freshly" picked skin - so no picking on blackheads / pimples prior to using this.

Comes the real problem..
I don't know if it works for me hahaha. I think my skin still looks the same. Not any fairer for long, not any darker either.

Having said that, lately I have been skipping sunscreen a few times a week :P
After finishing the recent Sunkiller, I've been more cautious in trying out other sunscreens because I do not want to be surprised in the morning with white cast, just 5 mins before I rush out the house. Worse, I even walked out for lunch without an umbrella! (need to change need to change)

So I guess in a way, not getting any darker is great?

Anyway, I have decided to use this serum prior to applying a mask (any type).
I find it works better this way. I do find fairer, plumped skin after removing the mask. So I'll just leave this for the masking ritual then.

Don't think I'll repurchase this, not bad, but not excellent either..

Hmm I threw away the packaging and now left with no product description..
This is one of the many sunscreen I've tried and really like.

... because it allows me to be lazy. Totally skipping BB Creams or foundations.
Its tinted runny texture is a dream to smooth on; leaving no white cast or oily residue. My skin was behaving all the time.

Not leaving a white cast is a big deal for me as I am always rushing in the morning, hence not liking the idea of spending extra minutes to blend.

Also the 30ml size is good for travel. Won't spill, but more because of the SPF50+. And of course the multi tasking giving me a great finish. Minimal steps, great pictures!

Also, the price is very affordable. At below RM30, this occassionally goes on sale at Watsons.

This is easily the most luxurious (read: expensive) scrub I own so far... and let me go straight to the point - I LOVE THIS STUFF!

Ok, first the scent is just heavenly. One whiff and I am relaxed. So calming and soothing..

The scrub texture is great for an all over scrub; however I don't fancy scrub with oil for the pits.. There are lots of lavender buds, when crushed, release more calming fragrance. Nice!

This rinses well and I like using this on damp skin. After shower with this srub, my skin feels velvety and always puts me in a great mood. Fantastic for those moody tough days...

As usual, I got this when the collection was launched, I don't remember the price anymore. However much I love this, I doubt I'll repurchase as I'm not keen in paying a bomb for wash-offs. *I wonder if they still sell this.. I have not been to a Crabtree store since my last handcreams purchase*
