My overseas beauty purchases

My five-week vacation was awesome. I think it changed my outlook on life and made me re-evaluate few things. Few situations definitely put me out of my comfort zone particularly when I was travelling alone. I am even considering starting my own travel blog sharing my experiences and points of view :)

However I want to keep this blog as beauty, fashion and lifestyle blog. I didn't go too crazy but still purchased few nice beauty-related things in various locations.

 1. YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat Foundation
 Looks very promising as it has both long-lasting properties and luminous finish. I haven't used it enough to do a full report but watch this space...

2. Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler
Couldn't resist this cult beauty tool plus it was relatively inexpensive in Singapore

3. Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Duty-Free Exclisuve miniature set
 It came with four gorgeous scents - Nerolia Bianca (citrus-y floral), Herba Fresca (fresh green), Flora Rosa (fruity rose) and Pamplelune (citrus + greens)

 I am keeping Herba Fresca and Pamplelune because I love fresh scents. Will be gifting the other two to my family members.
5. The Body Shop Hemp Hand Cream
This one is a must-have for me. I get very dry hands that sometimes peel and get itchy. This hand cream moisturises like no other. I keep coming back to it when I need some serious relieve.

6. The Body Shop Almond Hand Cream
Never tried this one before but I got it as a lighter alternative to Hemp hand cream. They cost me 10 Euros in Germany!

7. Vichy Aqualia Thermal Moisturiser
This French brand appealed to me because they claim to be free from parabens plus lots of their products don't contain alcohol. They use water from the famous Vichy Thermal Waters. This moistiruser has very light consistency and pleasant light scent, it doesn't break me out either.

8. Vichy Aqualia Thermal Lip Balm
Very light lip balm. It was perfect during summer however I found that it is not moisturising enough for winter.

9. Vichy Normaderm Micellar Water for Imperfection prone skin
It is very mild and even safe to use on eyes. It seems to pick up extra make-up and grime after cleansing.
