Price-friendly skincare


Earthbound Organics (a British local brand)  eye cream repair & rejuvenate  (15ml, $24) and Earthbound Organics blueberry and vitamin C eye gel (15ml, $24). Earthbound Organics ships to US now! Michelle placed an order last month and sent me a full size EYE GEL (so sweet~~~). I have been using the gel for an entire week, under makeup and for bed time. It functions as well as my LP eye cream ($310.....), keeping my under eye area moisturized & well pumped throughout the day (it is a little bit sticky at the very beginning, but gets absorbed just in a minute!). From other ppl's review (see here, from a Chinese makeup artist), the eye cream could be too rich for me, at least at summer time. What is your feeling, Michelle? I will alternate my LP skin caviar luxe eye cream and Earthbound Organics eye gel from now~

Amanda introduced Co.Bigelow rose water to me many years ago, and then I passed secrete to Michelle. When I stayed at Michelle's early this May, she gave me 2 bottles toner: Co.Bigelow Vitamin Boost Alcohol-free toner (green bottle, $12, 186ml) and Co.Bigelow Dr.Galen Herbal skin tonic (blue bottle, $12, 186ml). From then on, these two toners are my HG products! I use Dr.Galen Herbal toner on T-zone, where I easily breakout in summer time --especially this year; then spray the vitamin boost toner all over the face and neck. In super hot days, I just leave my face clean after the vitamin toner! Personally, I like these two more than Sisley toners! (combination skin type, and very sensitive)


Alexander Essentials Real Rose Gel (30ml, $13). I purchased from ebay (this seller provides prompt shipping, and products are fresh- expire on 2014).  It is also a British local brand. I use this gel as summer time moisturizer (face and eye), or serum in other seasons. I also mixed this gel with foundation to improve the moisturizing effect. It smells very pleasant, if you love rose :)

Whenever I planned a 10k, there were some excuses stopped me in the between! This morning, my little boy got fuzzy when I finished 8k... so my goal failed again. To "punish" him, let him take me a picture!

  1. Thank you for sharing with us. I am going to place an order for rose gel. I love rose. By the way, do you have rose water link please? Love your post.

  2. I use eye cream for night and eye gel for day. Cream is super rich and gel is relatively light. So far I am very happy with them and hopefully they will do their work!

    These toners are absolutely my essentials, kind of addicted to it.

    Me too, using that lovely Rose Gel to mix with foundation. Thank you for sharing!
