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.

Near & Dear x P.Calm UnderPore Foam Cleanser & Barrier Cycle Toner

There's a new korean skincare line in town and their skincare line is inspired by burn treatments, with all of their product made with 95% natural ingredients. I've recently tried out some of their products, courtesy of Near & Dear and here are my thoughts on them. 

𝐏.𝐂𝐚𝐥𝐦 𝐔𝐧𝐝𝐞𝐫𝐏𝐨𝐫𝐞 𝐅𝐨𝐚𝐦 𝐂𝐥𝐞𝐚𝐧𝐬𝐞𝐫

Key Ingredients :

  • Alanine Extract
  • Tea Tree Leaf Oil
  • Salicylic Acid
  • Centella Asiatica Extract
  • Safflower Extract
  • Coffee Arabica Seed Extract

Packaging :

150ml plastic tube packaging

Scent :

Mild minty, tea tree scent

Contains no artificial fragrance

Texture :

White, creamy texture

Inspired by burn treatments, this is a gentle foaming cleanser that cleanses greasy bumps for sensitive, acne-prone, easily irritated skin. Instead of chemical surfactant, it contains plant-based surfactant which doesn't leave skin stripped and dry.

I love how it thoroughly clean my face without making my skin feels tight. I have oily T-zone and this works great in regulating the sebum production. It made my skin feeling fresh and matte much longer than usual. The refreshing minty scent is a plus too!

Rating : 5/5

𝐏.𝐂𝐚𝐥𝐦 𝐁𝐚𝐫𝐫𝐢𝐞𝐫_𝐜𝐲𝐜𝐥𝐞 𝐓𝐨𝐧𝐞𝐫

Key Ingredients :

  • Niacinamide
  • Allantoin
  • Sodium Hyaluronate
  • Witch Hazel Water
  • Centella Asiatica Extract
  • Tea Tree Leaf Extract

Packaging :

200ml recyclable plastic bottle with flip cap

Scent :


Texture :

Clear, watery texture

This is a gentle toner that helps to melt the remaining traces of excess sebum and stubborn dead skin cells after cleansing. It's light and watery, and absorbs well into skin. It has anti-inflammatory properties which makes it perfect for soothing acne-prone, easily irritated skin. Despite being super watery, this is quite hydrating on my skin and it doesn't feel tacky at all.

My skin is quite resilient and I rarely get any skin redness, so this only works as a normal skin balancing toner for me. However I do think the cleanser and the toner makes the perfect duo as they're both gentle on skin and works well together in removing dirts and grimes without stripping off skin's natural oils
