Rating: 4.5/5

The pump dispenses just the right amount; no more accidental wastage. I don’t really have wrinkles but after a week’s use, my skin tone looks more even and my T-zone is less oily. My skin looks and feels so smooth! Although it is pricey, I’ll continue to use it because a little goes a long way.

Juice Beauty Green Apple Antioxidant Moisturizer, $80

The Juice Beauty Green Apple Antioxidant Moisturizer has vitamins A, C and E. It also brightens and evens skin tone with alpha lipoic acid.

   

Rating: 4/5

This is a rather thick cream. But it absorbs after just 30 seconds and doesn’t sting my sensitive skin, even near the eyes. It moisturises my dry skin and keeps it dewy throughout the day. My skin feels softer in the morning and is more radiant after night time use. For the day, I use it sparingly to avoid looking greasy. My only gripe: it has no UV protection.

Rating: 4/5

This has a pleasant scent, is lightweight and absorbs fast. After a week, my skin is fairer and smoother. The sun protection is an added benefit. My complexion used to look tired but it’s more radiant now. My fine lines have faded with daily use of this cream as it hydrates and protects my skin.

Rating: 3/5

This feels very smooth and not oily despite the luxurious texture. It keeps my skin comfortable and hydrated day and night, especially when I am in an air-conditioned environment. After using this for a week, my skin is smoother and feels softer plus I have a more even skin tone.

Strivectin Facial Anti-Oxidant, $233

The Strivectin Facial Anti-Oxidant promises younger-looking, firmer skin in 28 days, and curbs UV damage – even without SPF.

   

Rating: 3/5

Immediately after application, my perpetually dry skin feels soothed, cool and hydrated, and fine lines around my eyes and neck area are visibly reduced. But I personally don’t like too-creamy facial products, and find this a bit too rich for my face so I prefer to use it on my neck.
