Skin Care Wishlist

“Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.”
-George Bernard Shaw

I've gone through countless of beauty blogs in one day that even my work has suffered. I love going through other people's posts, reviews, updates and FOTD, which means Face of the Day! FOTDs are my new favorite things ever. I love looking at these lovely ladies and learning a lot of things from them! It's astounding how make-up can really highlight and add definition to the best things on your face and conceal the bad ones, eh?

There are about 20 new skincare brands I got to know and 50 more different cosmetics I never even thought existed. One reason is that I wasn't particularly focusing on skin care and cosmetics before and, two, those products I've seen aren't even available here from where I am.

I have a few things that I've added to my wishlist. For the first time it's not books, cardigans, or sneakers. I have few skin care products that I really wish I can try, please allow me to share these with you.

____Aicha's Skin Care Wishlist_____

Biore Blemish Fighting Cleanser
According to a post in it is a great cleanser for the face, as it targets the pores to clean them out and fight against blemishes. What's curious about it is that it's called an Ice Cleanser, maybe it's feels cool to the touch I think. I think this is cool, in another sense of the word. The main reason that propelled me into putting this to my wishlist is that Biore got good reviews from RiceBunny or MichellePhan, a cosmetics/skincare reviewer I really admire. She liked Biore because their line is really good for oily skin.

Neutrogena Invigorating Dual Action Toner
Reviews from reports the effectiveness of Neutrogena toner in leaving your face much cleaner by taking the gunk out of your pores especially when you've put a lot of make-up on. And it's not called Dual Action for just one thing: it also helps in tightening the pores.
A reviewer mentioned that it has a strong but clean scent and it dries quickly on the face. Somebody also mentioned about a tingly feeling. LOL TINGLY?! What's that about? :D

Aveeno Positively Radiant with SPF 15
Aveeno has been plugged countless of times by beauty blogs I frequent that I'm thinking to myself that this must be a staple for all skin care enthusiasts out there. Aveeno Positively Radiant with SPF 15 is a cute little thing! I'm more drawn to it than ever after reading a review from AssociatedContent about good things from this product. Aveeno is pretty to look at, with thick cream and a simple but pleasant smell about it. It's oil-free (yay), and both hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic. It contains soy in it, too, as it is the main ingredient in their Total Soy Complex that promises to solve problems of blotchy or uneven skin tone.

I don't think I'll find this around town very soon, but I am crossing my fingers for it. I can't order online because I am paranoid and it would cost me too much, as I'm only a blasted supplementary holder of a wretched credit card! Oh well, I can still dream and blog about it!


  1. I have tried the Neutrogena Invigorating Dual Action Toner and it's really good. It has a delicious blueberry like scent I think. And the tingly feeling? It cools your face after applying =)

  2. Aww that's great to hear. I'm saving up for a great toner at the moment. I'm looking into other brands too... I still wonder how toner works, but oh well, as long as it cleans the remaining gunk in my face its fine.
