Blotterazzi by Beautyblender

#140_shop_20150428_BBL0430-Edit

If you’re looking for an eco-friendly way to blot your face without ruining your make-up, you may want to consider Beautyblender’s latest product.

Unlike conventional blotting paper, the Blotterazzi ($34 for two blotters) is reusable.

I was satisfied with the way the Blotterazzi absorbed oil and perspiration from my face with minimal disruption to my makeup.

While it worked well for me, I can’t say the same for all skin types, since I have dry skin that produces very little oil.
Cleaning the cushioned blotter was rather hassle-free — I simply had to wash it with some Blender Cleanser liquid ($30), before drying it in a ventilated area.

Depending on how frequently you blot, you may want to clean your blotters about every three to four days, to avoid any skin complication.

Though the product can last up to 60 days with proper cleansing, I would recommend a shorter span of use depending on how oily your skin tends to be.

 

Solinotes Fleur de Frangipanier

#140_shop_Solinotes-Fleur-de-Frangipanier-EDT,-$24

Attracted first by the clear and compact bottle, I was pleasantly surprised to find that the Solinotes Fleur de Frangipanier ($24) smelled good too.

With pleasant hints of citrus and apple, and floral notes like orchid, rose and lily, its scent reminded me of a tropical summer’s day.

A few sprays were enough to keep me fresh all day.

 

#140_shop_WEN-Sweet-Almond-Mint-Cleansing-Conditioner,-$44Wen Sweet Almond Mint Cleansing Conditioner

Rich in natural goodies, the Wen Sweet Almond Mint Cleansing Conditioner ($44) was crafted to improve hair health, reduce frizz and maintain hair colour.

With ingredients like botanical extracts, including Aloe Barbadenis Leaf extract, the cleansing conditioner helps to moisturise the scalp and hair, adding lustre back to damaged hair.
