Month: March 2018

I’ve been eyeing Oasis Skin’s products on social media way before the recent launch of their website, so the moment the parcel arrived at my door step, I was beyond elated!

Oasis Skin is a Singapore skincare brand that recently launched in March 2018. Their masks and mists are all made in Singapore! They’ve incorporated lots of natural wild ingredients from France into their masks and mists, all of which are made in small batches! Each batch has its own unique batch number on the label. And speaking of labels, isn’t the lettering on their labels soooo gorgeous? (But I must warn you that the ink isn’t waterproof so keep it in a dry place away from your sink!)

The two products that I received from Oasis Skin were the Lavender and Sage Mist and the French Marine Clay + Ocean Vitamins Mask.

Oasis Skin Lavender and Sage Mist

Much like its namesake, this mist provides a surprising amount of hydration and is a real oasis for the face. In my opinion, the fragrance is a mix of flowery honey, essential oils, and relaxing lavender. I love how the bottle feels so weighted, and that the mist is so delicate and fine! It’s a refreshing change from the usual less fine water mists that I use.

I especially love spritzing this stuff all over my face before sleeping. If you have trouble falling asleep, I highly recommend this product to help you fall asleep instantly. There’s something about lavender that just relaxes you and makes you sleepy.

One other thing I really enjoy about this mist is that it provides adequate moisture to your face without making your face oily or hands greasy! Like really this is a godsend. Just a few spritzes of this stuff and you can go to sleep assured that your night time skin routine is taken care of.

The ingredients are absolutely fantastic as well. So if you’re interested in learning even more about this mist from Oasis Skin, please check out this LINK!

I 10/10 would recommend this lavender and sage mist to a friend and would replenish this product as soon as I’ve finished it!! 🙂

Oasis Skin French Marine Clay + Ocean Vitamins Mask

Honestly I’m not sure what vitamins are in this clay mask, but I must say, this three-ingredient mask is AWESOME. Firstly, to find a product with so few ingredients that works really opens your eyes to the kinds of products on the market out there. Do they really need so many other preservatives? Well, the fact that this clay mask is in powder form makes it much longer lasting than your usual store-bought clay mask and I suppose less in need of all these preservatives.

The three ingredients found in this clay mask are: spirulina extract, seaweed and illite clay. Clay has tons of minerals and is super good for clearing up and soothing unhappy skin (read: breakouts and rogue baby pimples). As for spirulina, it’s great for your body, and often touted as a superfood because it’s a great source of Vitamins B and antioxidants! Seaweed offers hydration, and is said to have anti-aging properties.

After using this mask, I didn’t expect much because it applied quite thinly. But surprisingly enough, the clay in the mask kind of dried quickly and there was this kind of hugging sensation as it dried (which seemed to happen faster and more effectively compared to other clay masks I’ve tried). Further, it was so easy to wash off. The only slight drawback I felt was that the smell was a lil strong (like the sea) but it reminded me of my time in Hokkaido and it made me realise how natural this mask really is 🙂 And halfway through masking, the smell of the ocean kind of went away.

After using this clay mask, all of my pimples (both big and small) went away and my pores had shrunk visibly too. My skin felt a lot smoother and more supple as a result the next day! If you’re worried about clay masks drying out your skin, just spray the Lavender and Sage Mist to re-hydrate the skin 🙂

Oasis Skin have a variety of really effective and natural masks and mists to choose from, so do give their new local business all the support it deserves! I actually really honestly like their products and packaging so much.

You can check out the clay mask: HERE!

Something I also just realised that is immensely helpful is that Oasis Skin have taken the trouble to include directions on how to use their clay masks on the website!

So if you ever purchase the mask and aren’t sure of the water to mask ratio to mix, the directions are as follows:

“Scoop 2 spoonfuls of mask powder out into a non-metal bowl and carefully add liquid to mix it into a paste. We recommend a 1:1 ratio of clay to liquid. Use the oasis:skin mask brush to apply the mask evenly onto your cleansed face and let it dry for 10-15 minutes. Gently wash it off with warm water and mist your face after to complete the treatment. For the ultimate treat, use your oasis:skin face mist liquid as a mask mixer to supercharge your mask therapy.”

Also, since Oasis Skin only just launched earlier this month, they are currently giving all customers 10% off. Hurrah!

Happy masking and misting friends!

I was so excited to receive my Nabila K Cosmetics goods in the mail earlier this month! I’ve heard great things about the brand and I love how they had such unique body scrub flavours.

Their skincare range is very wide and they have lots of fruity flavours to choose from. you’re a fan of US brands like Bath & Body Works and UK brands like The Body Shop, I’ld highly recommend you check out Nabila K!

My parcel consisted of 3 products that I really wanted to try out:-

(1) Nabila K Wine Body Scrub,

(2) Nabila K Apricot & Cinnamon Body Scrub,

(3) Moisturising Lip Balm with Passionfruit.

Nabila K Wine Body Scrub 🍷

If you have problematic dry, hardened skin, this berry coloured wine body scrub from Nabila K is a real skin savour and miracle worker!

I recently realised that I don’t have verrucas on my feet but that I have corn on the underside of my feet. Corns aren’t bunions or warts, and they aren’t contagious. What they are are cone-shaped bits of hardened skin that dig into the skin from pressure and mechanical stress.

As such, to deal with this hardened skin on the base of my feet as well as the usual dry, hardened skin around the back of my heel, I used this awesome scrub to bring back some life into my feet and also soften it. It’s like doing a DIY pedicure in the comfort of your own home really!

What I did was prepare a clean basin and filled it with hot water from my shower. You don’t need a lot of water, just enough to reach your ankles will suffice.

After that, I scooped out a reasonable amount of the Nabila K Wine Body Scrub using the nice wooden spatula-like spoon that comes with it. It makes things a lot less messy, and the spoon is so very cute and practical for handling this organic cane sugar scrub. I like how it is both reusable and eco-friendly!

I then soaked my feet in the hot water to soothe and relax my feet, and also encourage blood circulation.

Then, using my hands, I massaged the Nabila K wine body scrub on the top of my feet, the heels and the soles of my feet.

Ahh! Feels so good. For extra relaxation, pour yourself a glass of Merlot!

The Nabila K wine body scrub is good for exfoliating away dead skin cells without being harsh. It’s not damaging at all, and the fruity fragrance will leave you feeling relaxed and as if you are being pampered at a spa.

After soaking my feet for approximately 20 minutes, I dried my feet with some towels and then rinsed my feet as well as the basin.

My feet felt a lot smoother, younger looking, softer to the touch and also immensely hydrated after soaking in the lovely scrub. It’s as if all the effects of walking and ageing have been reversed!

I think using this Nabila K wine body scrub once or twice a week will definitely show an improvement in my skin’s moisture and texture! True story: You can say goodbye to dry, hardened skin after using this hardworking body scrub 🙂

Nabila K does a variety of body scrubs, and you can find the range at www.nabilak.com

If baby smooth skin is your skin concern, then you should definitely add this wine infused scrub to your cart!

Apricot & Cinnamon Body Scrub

If you would love to try the body scrub but you’re not that into fruity scents, I’ld recommend getting the Apricot & Cinnamon body scrub! It smells clean and is on the sweeter side but without the berry/fruit punch-like flavour. For that reason, I like using the Apricot & Cinnamon body scrub for my neck, torso, arms, and the Wine Body Scrub for my legs and feet.

Moisturising Lip Balm With Passionfruit

Lastly, I’ve added the Nabila K Moisturising Lip Balm with Passionfruit to my evening routine before bedtime.

I strongly recommend getting this if dry lips are your concern, I like applying this on my lips and the surrounding skin right before sleeping to ensure that my lips feel nice, soft and hydrated in the morning! It’s very functional and fuss-free, which makes it the perfect addition to your handbag/backpack!
