Pink & Booties

This wasn’t the outfit I envisioned when I decided on what to wear today. I first put on a bright pink leopard print polyester top from RIVER ISLAND and decided that they didn’t go with my F21 leggings (VPL and all that). Also, I came to work without the long cardigan. It just got cold in the office and I had it hugging the back of my seat. Today, I also have a new photographer. I say thanks to Stephanie from Corp Comms… my colleagues are awesome.

My Stuff: Make-up Removers

I like wearing make-up and on most days, my eyes are really made up with the full works – mascara, eyeshadow and eyeliner. Removing make-up is a chore. I share a bathroom with 1 of my sisters and thankfully, she’s a cosmestics and skincare product freak. If it were left up to me, I’ll buy the cheapest thing on sale and depend on it. I’m not particular about facial scrubs or wash but I do have a few favourite products that I actually do stock up on my own.

In a previous post, I mentioned the L’Oreal Visible Radiance Renewing Gel Toner. I like this product because a) I need a toner for my oily combination skin b) Gel toners are great as they are not harsh on aging skin c) it’s not expensive at all!!

The other stuff I like and are within my budget are:

  • Kao Biore – Biore Cleansing Oil
Biore Cleansing Oil

Biore Cleansing Oil

Just squirt some into your hands, rub it all over your face, wash off with water. Then finish with facial wash. Great for full make-up days.

  • Boots – Essentials Fragrance Free Eye Make up Remover Pads

These round little discs help remove waterproof eye make-up well. Press one against your eye lid, gently wiggle it over your eye and wipe over your lashes. Unfortunately, I’ve run out of them and I’ll have to wait till someone buys them for me from Thailand or England (or wherever there’s BOOTS).

  • Kao Biore – Biore Cleansing Oil Cotton Sheets
Biore Cleansing Oil Cotton Sheets (Regular Pack)

Biore Cleansing Oil Cotton Sheets (Regular Pack)

They come in several different packaging. A pack of 10 sheets – convenient for travelling; and a big utility pack of  48 sheets. I buy the utility size refills as I already have the nice box to pull it out of. This is great for those lighter make-up days. Just wipe your entire face with it, then cleanse with a normal facial wash.
