MC gave me some lovely freebies the last time we met.
Oh, she’s the absolute best!
Honestly, I haven’t been introduced to these brands yet so I was very excited to try them.
Thanks so much MC!
The moisturizing cream is very light and is absorbed easily by the skin.
It doesn’t melt which is really good considering our life here in the tropics.
No allergies whatsoever.
Nature Republic Eau de Shine SPF 25.
I was so looking forward to purchasing some in Singapore, but according to Kikay Trekkie, Nature Rep has already closed shop.
Nature Republic The Secret of Foundation SPF 25.
Although slightly different in shade, the quality is basically the same.
Similar staying power, texture and scent.
I only have good words about this brand.
Another note-worthy brand is Banila Co. which is now being endorsed by Hyorin, leader of SISTAR.
I think Hyorin best exemplifies the company’s foray into more alluring and sexy palettes.
And her magnificent singing and dancing skills help bring the new palettes to life.
She’s incredible, isn’t she?
Anyway, let’s go back to Banila Co.
As you can see, their Primer has a translucent texture which I like very much.
When applied, it exhibits a powdery texture that is both soft and fragrant.
I have noticed that when I do put this on before any foundation, I hardly needed any touch-ups for hours.
I consider this sort of a miracle considering my skin’s oily nature.
So how did I find it?
The texture is almost the same as Nature Rep’s.
