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.

Benton Air Fit UV Defense Sun Cream & Skin Fit Mineral Sun Cream

Benton is ranked high up in my list of favourite korean skincare brand. I've tried out many of their products but have yet to try any of their sunscreens. So when I finally got the chance to review their 2 sunscreens, I was extremely pleased since they have been on my wishlist ever since they first came out. Luna Beauty, a korean beauty retailer which is one of my favourite store to get the latest korean beauty care products has kindly sponsored these in exchange for a review.

I love chemical sunscreen and this is yet another HG sunscreen for me 😍 It's feathery light and doesn't feel greasy nor sticky at all. There is no white cast and it's super easy to blend on skin, I usually use this for re-application during the day. 

This sunscreen has a pleasant mild herbal, rosemary scent. It feels cooling and hydrating on skin. Sometimes I even skip my gel moisturizer when applying this. It has a semi-matte finish and I'm glad it doesn't turn my skin oily after a few hours. It also doesn't pill which makes it perfect under makeup. 

If you don't have any skin sensitivities with EO, this is a great sunscreen to try!

This contains Rosemary essential oil and has that typical sunscreen scent with a hint of herbal scent. The texture feels smooth, creamy and doesn't feel tacky nor greasy at all. It has minimal white cast and gives a slight tone up to skin, which still looks natural to me and doesn't make me look chalky white, lol. 

This however seems to pill under makeup if you apply a thick layer of it. It also requires more effort in blending compared to Air Fit Sun Cream, which doesn't leave any white cast at all. It leaves a slightly matte finish which suits my combination skin type. It also keeps my skin hydrated without getting greasy. Double cleansing is a must though since mineral sunscreen doesn't comes off easily. 

Overall out of the 2 Benton sunscreens, I prefer the Air fit sun cream. It's much more easier to blend and takes less time to apply in the morning, it's also perfect for re-application as it doesn't have any white cast 😊
