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.

Always Be Pure - Marine Therapy Dark Spot Correcting Serum

I'm super prone to hyperpigmentation and I've been trying to stop them from getting worse by slathering on tons of sunblock, lol. A few weeks back, I was luckily gifted a product, Marine Therapy Dark Spot Correcting Serum from Jake Kim from Always Be Pure. I've been quite interested in trying this korean skincare brand ever since I saw their Forest Therapy skincare line, which has a really beautiful green, nature inspired packaging.

Always Be Pure - Marine Therapy Dark Spot Correcting Serum has a beautiful marine inspired blue packaging. The blue plastic bottle is quite sturdy and comes with a pump applicator.

It is quite watery in texture which is quite good on combination and oily skin because it doesn't feel heavy at all. It also doesn't feel quite as sticky as other types of brightening serum that I'd tried so far. The scent however does smells a little bit medicinal, not too bad though as it doesn't linger too long and dissipates quicky as it dries out.

This product contains Niacinamide 4.9%, which helps to decrease hyperpigmentation and dark spots. So far I've noticed my dull and yellowish skin look much more brighter with a pinkish glow after continuously using this for 12 days. However I'll probably need longer time to see the effects on my dark spots though I did noticed small, new cluster of dark spots are slowly fading away, the older ones however remained the same.

I have large, noticeable pores that are easily congested, which results in small bumps to appear on my face. Though my pores are still quite noticeable, they look much more smoother than before, with less bumps on my face. 

This contains mild EWG Green Grade 1 substance to soothe irritated skin. It is also much gentler than the Vitamic C serum that I'd used before to reduce my dark spots. It doesn't dry out my skin and caused my skin to get flaky. 

My skin tends to get oily easily, so I'm glad this has a watery texture that is easily absorbed on skin. So far it has help to brighten and even out my skin tone, making me look much more healthier with glowing and hydrated skin.
