best and worst sunscreens in 2017

Three sunscreens you should try (and one you shouldn’t)

After years of thinking that I had found my sunscreen holy grails, this spring found me suddenly curious. What if there were better sunscreens around? What if I was missing out?! (Oh the horror!) That feeling coincided in a timely fashion with a few travels, and in came two new Western and two new Asian sunscreens. (New to me, that is. All of them aren’t newly released.)READ MORE

skincare capsule collection

My skincare capsule collection: a routine for sensitive combo skin

I’m well-known for a certain disdain towards the concept of capsule collections and minimalism. When it comes to skincare, though, I’m a firm believer in both a less is more approach and the capsule concept. It just makes sense – you want to have a skincare regime in which you can combine stuff that works for you, and you don’t want umpteen bottles and pots standing around and going off because you never reached for them. So my approach to skincare is to find stuff that works for me (doh) and products that can be easily combined for the many issues my skin may come up with.READ MORE

Holy grails I buy again and again – skincare edition

Holy grail skincare, people. Holy grails. It was actually very easy to decide what’s going to be in this post – I just had to look into my backup drawer. “Backup drawer?!” I hear somebody explain incredulously. Yup, backup drawer – as I have to import nearly everything while I’m living in Shanghai, I actually have a backup drawer (or two. One’s in the fridge). So here’s what I buy again and again, because this is the good stuff – my skincare holy grails. Or the products I’d weep over if they ever were to become discontinued.READ MORE

Tutorial mineral foundation with spf

Why mineral foundation is great in summer (plus a beauty hack)

I tend to wear mineral makeup with SPF when it gets hot. I’ve combination skin that gets shiny very quickly in the heat. Generally, while liquid foundations break down really quickly in those conditions, mineral foundation doesn’t for me. If you’ve got dry skin, though, that might be different. But I found the perfect beauty hack for a super quick and easy application that’s great for all skin types.READ MORE
