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.

BBLabs Mangosteen Brightening Detox Serum

B&BLabs is a Malaysian skincare brand that pushes skincare beyond the conventional by integrating traditional modalities with the latest technology. Previously I'd tried out their CustoMask, a targeted and treatment-grade sheet mask customized through an AI skin assessment test to ensure the CustoMask you get is exactly what you need. 

Later on I was invited to do a survey on the CustoMask and in exhange they would either sent me the Advanced Durian Hydration Serum or Mangosteen Brightening Detox Serum. Even though I was super curious on the Durian serum since it seems quite fascinating to have it listed as a skincare ingredient, I decided to pick Mangosteen Brightening Detox Serum since I'm still trying to lighten my pigmentations. Mangosteen is another ingredient that I wouldn't expect in a skincare. I love eating Mangosteen so it really peak my interest to see how it'll work on my skin.

BBLabs Mangosteen Brightening Detox Serum comes in a set of 3x5ml bottles serum. This is a potent serum and you'll only need to use a few drops of it each time. The texture is quite watery and there is no noticeable scent as fragrance is not listed in the ingredient. I apply this day and night, after applying my toner and serum. Once I applied this on, I'll top it off with my hydrating gel moisturizer.

At first, I was quite wary to apply this potent serum on my skin as I have sensitive skin and I'm worried about suffering from an allergic reaction. However after trying this out one night, I woke up without any skin reaction, no redness, no itchy-ness, so it's safe to proceed to try this on the next day. Unlike those brightening skincare products that contains Arbutin which sometimes cause sun-sensitivity to my skin, this one is quite gentle on skin. The fact that they skip fragrance in this serum also lowers the risk of irritation, perfect for those with easily aggravated skin.

I'm now on my 3rd and last bottle. So far it has worked well in brightening my complexion and it helps a lot to lighten up random spots on my skin. The result however is not instantaneous and you'll need to diligently apply this at least twice a day, however you'll definitely noticed a difference once you'd finish the first bottle. It also seems to give my skin a smooth, mattifying effect, with less breakouts.
