My blog was started in 2012, and since established, I haven’t do any real “Best Product of the Year” kind of post. Sorry for being late, but here it is :
Tania’s favorite Beauty Product in 2014!
Looking back, in 2014 my skin has up and down journey. Been sorrow and joy, these are my favorites :
Holy Grail : Paula Choice Clear Anti Redness Exfoliating Solution with 2% Salicylic Acid
My absolute favorites. DOES clean my skin and makes it way much much much better. Now I am just using it like 2-3 times a week to maintain the clearness. The only cons is just price. But well, I’d go for it.
Second, also from Paula Choice : Clear Daily Skin Clearing Treatment with 5% Benzoyl Peroxide
Hey, I’ve just said my skin is much much much much better, then why do I need another treatment? Because I still get acne during my period. Amount vary from 1 silent acne to 4 horrible acne. This product helps. Cons? Price and sometimes it’s sting.
Third is Sulwhasoo Concentrated Ginseng Renewing Cream.
Mine is in sample size (and I keep buying sample size because regular size cost a Fortune, no joke).
I have oily skin and mostly, cream moisturizer wouldn’t work. This one works, and could be function as moisturizer, night cream, eye cream (no cream bleeding) and has anti oxidant that help with spot.
Fourth, Himalaya Herbals Purifying Neem Foaming Face Wash (also the one in tube. I run out of it so no picture)
Thanks God I’ve found this. It’s considerably expensive compared to another drugstore brand here, but only fraction compared to Korean Facial Wash. Plus, it’s free from Parabens, SLS/SLES and Phthalates. It’s helps prevent acne and cleanse well. This one is my second foaming bottle and I’ve just finished my second tube.
Fifth, Evian Natural Mineral Water
I know it's said to be far less amazing than Avene Facian Mist, but it's far more affordable here in Indonesia and i think for me, it's done the job very well.
Last, also from Paula Choice is Skin Balancing Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum
It has Retinol and help to fade my acne scars. 2% salicylic acid does the job quite well but it works faster with SBSACS (gosh, what a long name!).
Since I’m not wearing make up much, I only got 2 super-favorites :
Urban Decay Naked 3
No introduction needed, I guess?
Well, first I don’t think I could pull the Rose Gold theme but thankfully, it turn so good. I rarely wear my naked 2 now. Naked 3 ROCKS!
Coty Airspun Translucent Extra Coverage Loose Powder
Maybe it’s too fast to say it’s favorites in 2014, since I just bought it about end of November but I found nothing work as great as this one, even the ingredient is out of my usual picks, but still. I’m in love.
The Body Shop Vanilla Bliss Body Polish
I’ve praised it so high in my review post (click here to read) and this one is my second tube of vanilla. Faves.
Nivea Daily Protection Sun Lotion Light Feeling SPF 25 PA ++
Remember how I always complained why there’s no good sun lotion? They’re always feel heavy on my skin. Those that lights, has no SPF. No wonder my skintone getting darker and darker.
However, thanks Nivea to bring this cute blue tube to Indonesia. It’s really feels like on my skin. And SPF 25 is enough too. Bought 5 bottles when it launching sale for IDR. 15,000/100ml each. CHEAP.
Have you tried any of these? Does them impressed you?
