Current Beauty & Accessory Faves

Sunday, December 2, 2018

Hello, welcome back! Today I wanted to share my current beauty and accessory faves with you. They've all captured my heart, with some products that are brand new and others just rediscoveries of how amazing they are. I'm trying to build a practice of appreciating the things that I already have, so I don't have urges to always go for and buy the latest things.


Neostrata has reformulated and rebranded its entire collection, with 45 products across seven different lines. I got the privilege to try out a bunch of their products at their launch event and take some home, but I was able to quickly narrow down to my absolute favourites. They're so good that I went out and repurchased them!  It's interesting to see how most of the products that I really like are from the Enlighten range, with its main targets to smooth skin texture and even skin tone. These were my favourites (if you want a more in-depth review of any of these, let me know!): Neostrata Dual Acid Brightening Peel*, Neostrata Sheer Physical Protection Sunscreen, and the Neostrata Vitamin C Concentrate Radiance Capsules.

Laneige Lip Mask

My lips have been so dry to the point that it peels and cracks (sorry if it's TMI haha). This always comes to the rescue and saves my lips. It's so rich and effective that it heals my lips overnight! It doesn't have a weird waxy taste either, like I've found in other lip balms.

Sephora Collection Cream Lip Stain

I've rediscovered these lip creams and I'm still in love with them! It finishes off matte and stays put without drying out the lips. I have #13 Marvelous Mauve and #40 Pink Tea . They're affordable too for the quality!

Polaroid Eyeglasses

One of my latest additions to my glasses collection is this pair by Polaroid! I've gotten more compliments on it than I expected haha but I love the gradient purple design. I had a client at work who saw me wearing it, and she loved it so much that she ordered the same pair of glasses for herself! Little things like that make me love my job as an optician. This is also the colourful pair in my collection.

Plaisirs de Birks Silver Star Pendant

A necklace that I've been wearing non-stop is this one by Birks & Sons. The simple design with the thin silver chain and single star pendant is beautiful! I received this as a wedding gift from a relative-in-law and I've been wearing it a ton! Can we also just admire the packaging of Birks & Sons with their blue box?! (Almost sounds like a Tiffany purchase haha)

What have you been enjoying lately?!
