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.

Luna Beauty x Tocobo Bio Watery Sun Cream & AHA BHA Lemon Toner

Tocobo AHA BHA Lemon toner has been on my wishlist ever since I saw the cute lemon cap on their toner bottle. It's absolutely adorable and I'm really trilled when I got the chance to review it along with Tocobo Bio Watery Sun Cream. Luna Beauty has kindly gifted these products in exchange for an honest review and here are my thought on them ☺️

𝑹𝒂𝒕𝒊𝒏𝒈 : 4.5/5

This smells a lot like grass which I strangely like 😂 It feels hydrating on my combination skin type and the texture feels a bit like an essence. I can even skip my moisturizer when using this though I wouldn't recommend doing that too frequently if you have dehydrated skin, lol.

The best thing about this sunscreen is it doesn't leave any white cast, which makes it perfect for re-application during the day. It's also easier to apply when you're in a rush. There's a refreshing feel after applying and it leaves a natural, glowy finish on my skin, which I don't mind as it doesn't feel greasy at all. Overall it's a great chemical sunscreen if you don't mind the weird grass scent

𝑷𝒓𝒊𝒄𝒆 :

This has a strong, lemony scent which smells a lot like men's cologne, which I'm not too fond of 😆 However I do like the cute 🍋 cap and the overall sleek packaging. 

Besides lemon extract, this toner also contains alcohol and essential oils. Normally my skin is quite resilient to these ingredients but the first time I used this, there was a slight stinging sensation on some drier part on my forehead, probably because I have some spots on those areas. 

It has a clear, viscous texture that feels almost like an essence. The brightening effect is quite noticeable with this toner and so far it feels quite hydrating on skin. No further skin irritation despite the stinging sensation on my first try. Overall I'm quite dissapointed with this toner as I really do love the packaging, I really wish they would come up with a milder scent if they ever think of reformulating it in the future 😆

𝑹𝒂𝒕𝒊𝒏𝒈 : 3.5/5
