There’s nothing like laying down a good wishlist while sitting back and relaxing, it’s like having a guilt-free virtual shopping spree without really…shopping. I’m sorry but my wishlist consists mostly of stuff you can’t get here…that’s why I wish, right. This isn’t my holiday wishlist, it’s just…random. With this though I’ve been a bit of a cheat in making it for today because one or two of the items are on their way to me from weeks ago already. A friend of mine is bringing back a facial oil from SG and the rollerballs might arrive with some friends from the U.S., just might, and the book I bought from ebay just hasn’t arrived yet. However, since those items are nowhere in sight yet at present I decided there was no need to exclude them from the list because I’m still excited for when they do arrive. I’ve noticed at my age, right before hitting the big THREE-OH next year, I’ve become more interested in the skincare, wellness, and fragrance realms in beauty. There’s generally less makeup on board and I’ve obviously got that bath and body buzz going for me right now. I know you’re curious about what I mentioned in the previous post so let’s go with that first. This organic beauty wonder arrives for me in November thanks to a friend.
1.) PAI Rosehip Bioregenerate Fruit & Seed Blend facial oil – “High levels of Trans-Retinoic Acid are delivered directly to the epidermis, which converts to Vitamin A to boost the skin’s natural healing process. Clinical studies show Rosehip is effective at improving the appearance of scars, stretch marks, sun damage and fine lines.Rosehip BioRegenerate™ is unique in containing concentrated fruit hip oil, with double the regenerative sterols and five times the carotenoids of seed oil. Premium CO2 supercritical extraction delivers the complete and concentrated properties of the plant. This makes Pai Rosehip BioRegenerate™ far more powerful than simple cold pressed Rosehip seed oils.” – Price: Converted about Php1450, not bad at all for well-processed organics.
I first heard about Pai Rosehip Bioregenerate facial oil from the WorshipBlues blogof that Fushigi Shop lady and I’m hoping it’ll replace the current serum I’m using by Kiehl’s because I’m just sharing with Mom at the moment. I heart her blog and frequent it almost without fail. She’s not purely a beauty blogger is and is a married Japanese woman based in London. She said this facial oil was wonderful for her reactive, sensitive skin *fist pump* and I’ve even heard it remedies contact dermatitis and rosacea or acts simply as an anti-oxidant cocktail for the skin. I’m quite excited to try it and use it in the same way I’m currently using the Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate serum (previous post). Pai organics UK only ships as far as Singapore or HK in our region I think so if you have friends there they’re your best shot.
2.) FRESH Seaberry Exfoliating Soap – “The nourishing formula is fortified with omega-rich seaberry oil and is triple-milled to last longer. It produces a lush, non-drying lather for a luxurious cleansing experience.”Key Ingredients: Cranberry, Bitter Orange, and Rosemary
I did tell you I got the bath and body buzz…I’m still tipsy for bubbly, scrubby, and lovely smelling products. This brand is known more for its fabulous sugar lip products but nobody really nails organic fragrant scents like fresh. They draw the line just where needed so that their products are not too “foodie” and are more fragrant. I’m excited to see how this soap lathers up and what sort of scent it embraces me with this cozy season.
3.) FRAGRANCE ROLLERBALLS @ Sephora – Brown Sugar by Fresh, Stella by Stella McCartney, and Amazing Grace by Philosophy, $20 and below each
A couple I knew mentioned they were heading to the U.S. soon so they asked if I wanted them to bring home anything. I thought of these 3 rollerball fragrances that are easy to bring back and are available at just 1 place, Sephora, which are just between sample size and the smallest full size available, of course you get more value for money with full sizes but it’s still MORE money in the end and at least you can try more than one. They’re also prettier (but not more cost efficient) than Travalo refillable atomizers in the sense that they’re “officially dinky” and have got the fragrance branding on. I’m not quite sure if rollerballs are refillable…if they were that would be wonderful especially if you decided on a full size afterwards. Click read more to get the full post.
