In the month of September, I enjoyed using:
♥ ~H2O+ Anti-Acne Overnight Complex -- This product was my substitute after I finished the Neutrogena Anti-Acne Anti-Aging Cream. I feel that it's essential for me to include an anti-acne serum in my daily routine since I do have acne-prone skin, so it's a good idea to prevent new pimples from forming at all times. This ~H2O+ serum comes in a light gel form that contains salicylic acid as the main anti-acne ingredient. I love that it feels light on the skin and quickly absorbs without leaving my face greasy. Almost done with this tube yay :)
♥ Rock and Republic Exhibition Pressed Powder in Satin -- I used this pressed powder for touch up during my wedding. And for the past two weeks or so I have also been using it as my setting powder during my makeup routine. Besides the fact that I love its glam and sturdy packaging, I also find the powder to be smooth, somewhat pigmented, and does not become cakey throughout the day. I was able to use just a concealer for spot concealing, and a thin layer of the powder all over my face today before I stepped out of the door, no foundation or BB cream needed -- it really helps to even out my complexion. The shade Satin is a perfect match for my ~NC25 skin tone.
♥ Amore Pacific Treatment Enzyme Peel --Forget the harsh grainy exfoliators, this enzyme peel does the exfoliating job so much better, without the risk of it being too harsh to the skin. It is also perfect for traveling because it comes in powder form in the bottle -- doesn't weight much, and doesn't make a ton of mess, especially with its pre-measured sprout that pours out the perfect amount of products for every use. I use this peel after I cleanse my face either in the morning or in the night after shower. It was a life saver the few weeks before my wedding -- a wonderful product to help my skin stay smooth and flake free -- helped with my chapped lips too! I suggest you to use it during your morning regime on the day of a big event, so your skin will be freshly prepared to let skincare soak in better, and let makeup sit on smoothly.
♥ Shiseido Tsubaki Damage Care Hairmask --The Shiseido Tsubaki line is quite popular among blogger ladies. This was my first jar of tsubaki hairmask. I had previously bought this for May and friends before, but it never occurred to me to try it out myself. But when my hair was somewhat lackluster and I was in desperate need to make it smooth and shiny for my wedding, I picked up a jar to try, and it worked great! I apply this hair mask after I wash my hair, concentrating on the ends, then I'd clip my hair up and let it sit and work the magic while I finish the rest of my shower, and finally rinse the mask off. My hair would instantly feel a lot smoother, and next day more volumized and shinier.
♥ Beautyblender -- Jumped on the bandwagon a few months back and got my own Beautyblender sponge, and I loved using it! This was the tool that helped me to get that flawless airbrushed skin for my wedding day! It's the perfect little tool for blending in foundations, and dabbing on concealers, and it's so fun to use!
♥ Urban Decay Naked Palette -- Last but not least, finally a chance to showcase my Naked Palette. The reason I haven't talked about it much was because as soon as I received it, I stowed it away in a little box of makeup labeled wedding kit -- I knew the two matte brown shades (Naked and Buck) would be perfect for my simple day time eye makeup. I also used Virgin for the brow bone and inner corners of my eyes, and Darkhorse as liner.
