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.

OFBASE Centella 101 Toner & Ampoule

Centella Asiatica, popularly known as Cica is a green, herbal leaf that's famous in asia as a medicinal plant. It's been used for centuries in treating wounds and burns. Korean skincare has been incorporating this ingredients in skincare as it has soothing, healing properties that's gentle even on sensitive skin. The latest korean skincare brand that offers Cica-based skincare line is OFBASE, and thanks to Picky, I'll be reviewing their Centella 101 Toner & Ampoule.

Review : 

This is very soothing on skin, quite hydrating too despite it's watery texture. I prefer lighter, watery toner during the day and this is perfect for me as it absorbs fast into skin. Besides soothing and hydrating the skin, it doesn't seem to have any other noticeable effects, however Centella Asiatica/Cica remains one of my favourite ingredient in skincare as it's a sensitive skin friendly ingredient that doesn't seem to cause any reactions on my skin.

This is a very lightweight ampoule, one that you can layer on without making your skin feel sticky nor heavy, perfect for me who have combination-oily skin. It's quite soothing and hydrating, and those with sensitive skin will definitely love this as it's very gentle on skin. I rarely suffers from skin redness and inflammation, so this doesn't give an obvious effect on my resilient skin, however it's great as a basic daily skincare, as it gives adequate hydration without triggering any skin breakouts. This ampoule is quite similar with Skin1004 Madagascar Centella Ampoule. I like both and they have the same results on my skin, so in the future I'll definitely pick the cheaper one between these two 😆
