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.

713 Pinus Deep Hydration Facial Toner & Cream, 713 Vitamin C Deep Hydration Facial Serum

713 is a sustainable cosmetic brand from South Korea which incorporates Radiata pines trees in their skincare line. The Radiata pines trees are from New Zealand, and they're usually thrown away, incinerated without being utilized. Pinus, an antioxidant extracted from those pine barks is the main ingredient used in 713 skincare and the main focus of today's skincare review, as I've been kindly gifted their products by 0.8L in exchange of an honest review.

  • New Zealand Pine Bark Extract
  • Rosemary Extract
  • Olive Oil
  • Macademia Oil

  • To improve skin elasticity
  • Help maintains skin balance 
  • Help strengthen skin barrier
  • Moisturize dehydrated skin

Packaging :

Scent :

Contains fragrance, smells like hair products to me

Texture :

Emulsion type texture

This is quite viscous and has an emulsion type of texture instead of being the usual runny, watery toner. It's very hydrating and despite being a little thick, it absorbs quite fast and doesn't feel greasy at all. I love the hydrating effect it has my skin and it really made my skin feels soft and smooth. The only downside is I can't get used to the scent, there's fragrance listed in it and it reminds me of hair products and the smell of salon.

Rating : 3.8/5


𝟕𝟏𝟑 𝐏𝐢𝐧𝐮𝐬 𝐃𝐞𝐞𝐩 𝐇𝐲𝐝𝐫𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 𝐅𝐚𝐜𝐢𝐚𝐥 𝐂𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐦 

Key Ingredients :

  • New Zealand Pine Bark Extract
  • Hydrolized Collagen
  • Macademia Oil
  • Camellia Oil 
  • Jojoba Oil


Benefits :
  • To improve skin elasticity
  • Help maintains skin balance
  • Help strengthen skin barrier
  • Moisturize dehydrated skin

Packaging :

80g plastic tube packaging

Scent :

Contains fragrance, smells like hair products to me

Texture :

Lotion-cream texture

This contains a lot of moisturizing ingredients including natural oils, however it doesn't feel greasy at all once it gets fully absorbed. It's lotion-like texture melts easily into skin, leaving a smooth silky finish. Recommended to wear during night time as it contains more moisturizing ingredients, this made my skin silky smooth in the morning when I wake up. I would have given this a much higher rating if it didn't contain fragrance. The scent is quite strong to my nose and it kinda reminds me of men's hair wax/pomade.

Rating : 4/5


𝟕𝟏𝟑 𝐕𝐢𝐭𝐚𝐦𝐢𝐧 𝐂 𝐃𝐞𝐞𝐩 𝐇𝐲𝐝𝐫𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 𝐅𝐚𝐜𝐢𝐚𝐥 𝐒𝐞𝐫𝐮𝐦

Key Ingredients :

  • New Zealand Pine Bark Extract
  • Vitamin C derivatives

Benefits :

  • Brightens dull skin 
  • Hydrate and refresh skin
  • Moisturize dehydrated skin

Packaging :

30ml glass dropper packaging

Scent :

Contains fragrance.

Smells almost the same as the toner, albeit milder and much more pleasant.

Texture :

Clear, runny texture

Despite containing fragrance, I actually like the scent of this. There's some similarity with the scent of the toner though this is much more milder. I used to love collecting scented candles and this strangely smells like those candle shops which I frequented, a nostalgic scent to me, lol.

The texture of the serum is quite runny and it doesn't take long to absorb into skin. I'm wary of using Vitamin C products as they sometimes irritate my skin. Thankfully this doesn't seem to cause any reaction on my skin . The brightening effects is quite noticeable despite only using this for a week. It also works quite fast in lightening new acne scars, on dark spots however it doesn't seem to change that much, I'll probably need to use it longer to see results. Overall this is my fave out of the 3 products from 713, it gives me brighter, glowing, more even skin tone minus the skin irritation.

Rating : 4.2/5
