Lolita Lempicka

When it comes to perfume, one of my favourite perfume brand is Lolita Lempicka. The first perfume by Lolita Lempicka was created by Annick Menardo in 1997, but sadly it has been discontinued in 2010 and later re-released as Lolita Lempicka Le Premier Parfum.  In hopes of getting the original version of Lolita Lempicka, I've been diligently searching for a bottle of the older formulation, but Lolita Lempicka has indeed become quite rare and I haven't been able to get my hands on the original version. I ended up purchasing a bottle of Lolita Lempicka Le Premier Parfum from a friendly Carousell seller, who's selling off some of her older perfume collection. I decided to snag it, just to get a whiff of the newer version, and of course to complete my Lolita Lempicka collection.

Some By Mi Yuja Niacin 30 Days Blemish Care Serum

I noticed my skin look a little sallow lately, probably becauses I've been out too long in the sun while tending my garden. I naturally have some freckles, but over the years it seems to have gotten much worse, especially now that I've reach the age where skin discoloration is inevitable. As I contemplate whether or not I am in need of a new brightening product, the good people at Some By Mi had sent over a new product, Yuja Niacin 30 Days Blemish Care Serum for me to try out, which coincidentally helps to reduce dark spots.

The main ingredient Yuja is a type of citrusy fruit which are produced largely in Goheung, Korea. Apparently it has a taste between lime, lemon, orange and grapefruit. Hmmm now I am super curious how it actually taste like🤔The high concentration of vitamin, a total of 82% Yuja extract will soften your skin and gives it a natural glow.

This product also contains 5% of Niacinamide, a powerhouse ingredient for brightening. Infused with Arbutin, glutathione and 12 types of vitamin components, it helps revitalize skin and replenish moisture to enhance the look of depleted skin. All these ingredients are quite popular for brightening skin, and are beneficial for those who have blemish prone skin and wishes to reduce their dark spots.

As for fragrance, it contains real Yuja Fragrance from fresh Yuja Peel Oil, and none of those synthetic fragrance. It has a citrusy scent that smells quite refreshing. Texture wise, it's almost watery and feels very light. It absorbs easily on skin and doesn't feel sticky at all. It leaves a fresh feeling on skin and I wake up the next day with no signs of oily slickness. I am quite wary with products that contains citrusy ingredients due to my sensitive skin, so I'd tried it out first on a small spot on my face, and it does not irritate my sensitive skin at all. So I apply it over my face and concentrate on those areas where I have a lot of pigmentations.

After 2 weeks, I've noticed my complexion no longer look dull and sallow. My cheeks has that rosy glow and I look much healthier than before. The small red bump on my upper brow is no longer visible though my freckles were too stubborn to go away, lol, it does however clears up the small bumps on my face. Blemish prone skin will benefit a lot from this as it's quite effective in lightening dark spots. Another great thing is it doesn't strip away your skin moisture and dry out your skin. 

Overall, it's a good product to try especially if you have blemish prone skin and suffers from hyperpigmentation.
