2020 Beauty Favourites

2020 was a weird year. I stopped blogging due to a lack of motivation. The momentum slowed down as we enter the lockdown phase and personally, it was a life-changing phase as well. I must say I didn’t try new makeup that much due to staying at home mostly and wearing mask at all times. But I still discovered some good products that I could share with you guys:

Abib Gummy Sheet Mask Milk Sticker

Abib sent me a box of various sheet masks and the one I love the most is this Milk Sticker mask. The mask is made from elastic material and it is very thin. I love the milk serum mostly. After the application, my skin feels refreshed, softer and brighter. I could see the difference within just 15 minutes of the application.  

Immediately I went to Watson to purchase it, but it was completely sold out. The next week I went, they had only 6 pieces left and I took it all. It's my current weekly sheet mask. 

Dior Addict Lip Tattoo

This is my favourite lipstick (or rather lip product) under the mask. As the name suggests, it is a lip tint. And I love the long-lasting colour that I don’t have to keep reapplying. I will do a lengthier review on this as I find it really helps for us who are wearing mask all day. 

La Mer The Cleansing Foam

I always had the thought that we shouldn’t spend so much on facial cleanser because we’re going to wash it off anyway. However, I changed my mind immediately because acne keeps developing as I put on a mask for long hours. After I read some articles online, I was convinced that cleansing your face is the first step and the most important step of our skincare routine. Hence, I bought the full size of La Mer Cleanser after trying the travel-sized version. 

It effectively cleanses off all the makeup residue and leaving my skin squeaky clean - not the tightening feeling but it really feels like my skin is weightless. 

Dior Prestige Serum

In the beginning, when I had this serum, I was so stingy in using it. I was saving it by using it little by little so it didn't show much of a result. But as I was running out of serum, I had to use it consistently. It turns out to be super effective in getting rid of my mask acne, as well as keeping my skin really plump. I still use it sparsely but I will continue to use it in a stretch of 7 days, then the next 7 days I will alternate with other serum.

I do recommend this serum if you can afford it. The effects is like botox, without the needle. 

Chanel Hair Mist (Eau de Fraiche)

Initially, I thought this is a product that nice-to-have and not necessarily good-to-have. However, I started to have a different thought after I got it for some time. I use it in a lot of situations such as spraying my pillow, curtain, and I even use it as regular fragrance. I also recently visited Yun nam and the scalp tonic they provided smell so bad. I had to use the Chanel hair mist to cover up the smell of the tonic. This is definitely one of my best buy in 2020.
