Growing up in Asia, I have always been taught that a pale, pigmentation-free complexion is the ideal beauty. I began my hunt for the perfect whitening product ever since I was 15 and after years and years of searching, I think I have finally found the one!
Developed by Dr. Raffaello Carullo and Dr. Fauzia Chaudhery at the Vivipharma laboratory in Italy, REphase D-White (Dermal White) is a progressive skin-lightening cream to effectively and safely remove skin discoloration that comes with age and sun exposure.
Let’s face it. With the hectic schedule everyone’s got nowadays, having to wash, condition, blowdry and style your hair every day – especially when you have long Asian hair like I do – just seems pretty impossible. So how can you keep your hair clean and healthy without spending hours in the bathroom? I reached out to the folks at Ojon for help and a sample of their Rub-out Dry Cleanser landed on my doorstep.
Formulated with Amazonian White Clay, Silk Powder, Rice, Potato starches and Soap Bark Extract, the Rub-out Dry Cleanser lets you kill two birds with one stone by removing impurities, toxins, excess oils and product build-up while adding volume to your hair at the same time.
All you have to do is spray the product directly onto your hair and massage it into the scalp and from the roots to the ends. The process takes less than 5 minutes and every time I use it, my hair becomes instantly refreshed and lifted.
For a lasting pop of color on the lips, I am really digging MAC’s new Pro Longwear Lipstain Marker!
I have always loved MAC’s Pearlglide Eye Liners so how can I resist the newly formulated Pearlglide Intense Eye Liners?

I have always been a fan of Hard Candy’s new line at Wal-mart so when I was sent a sample of their award-winning Split Personality Eye Color Duo ($7) for review, I was thrilled!

Available in 4 gorgeous shades of golds and bronzes, Hard Candy So Baked Bronzer ($9) comes in the cutest compact and are such a great dupe of my favorite MAC Mineralize Skinfinish – at half the price!
The bronzers impart a dewy, bronzed glow and can easily be layered on for more color. I like to dip a large powder brush into this and buff onto the skin for a natural glow or you can use it wet for a more intense effect.
My only gripe is they don’t travel well and tend to break easily so make sure you keep them somewhere safe.
Hard Candy So Baked Bronzer is available at Walmart for $9.
