Physicians Formula

Have you ever heard of Physicians Formula? It’s a skin products brand. Few weeks ago, I bought one of their pressed powder, the Organic wear® 100% Natural Origin Pressed Powder. According to Skin Deep, it is considered to be low hazard. In case you forgot, I posted a very short list of hazardous ingredients in many products out there that we should avoid.

Anyway…I’ve only bought it once and it hasn’t finished ~ so far so great though  ^^ BUT just be aware that not all Physicians Formula products are considered to be low hazard according to Skin Deep.

Well, here are some pictures:

It does not only look green but it really is GREEN (as in environmental friendly ;))

Definitely NOT with the butterflies! I was just bored with the usual pictures :P

That’s all the pictures! How did you like it? :) I REALLY LOVE the design, I think it’s really unique.

Lastly, I do NOT know whether this product is suitable for all skin types or not. But my skin is fine with this (my skin type: combination).

Safe Cosmetics

Hi everyone!

Be careful in choosing your cosmetics.

Some lists of dangerous chemicals in cosmetics:

  1. Fragrance (concerns: neurotoxicity, allergies, etc.)
  2. Paraben ( cosmetics containing this actually violate the safety guidelines in U.S., E.U., Japan and Canada. Concerns: organ sytem toxicity, irritation, etc )
  3. Aluminum Powder (concerns: cancer, development/reproductive toxicity, allergies, etc)
  4. BHA ( cosmetics containing this actually violate the safety guidelines in U.S., E.U., Japan and Canada. Concerns: cancer, biochemical or cellular level changes, etc)
  5. BHT (Concerns: cancer, endocrine disruption, immunotoxicity, etc)

Go check this website – it gives pretty comprehensive reviews on almost all of the cosmetics (make-up, skin care, eye care, hair care, oral care, nail care, baby care, and fragrance.)

Olive oil

This is a picture of an extra virgin olive oil.

We (or at least most of us) heard about this product health benefits.

Good for cooking and good for adding it straight into salad, meal, etc…

… Have you ever heard of olive oil as a make up remover?


Yes, for some of you that haven’t heard about it, it is TRUE.

And truly EFFECTIVE.


Not just for removing make up, but also dirt, etc.

So, is it exclusive to women? No.


Olive oil works its magic by breaking down the fats (i.e. oils) and other impurities in our skin.

Okay, here I am talking about face skin.


How’d u do that, then?


Simple.

See that? :)


Actually, there are many other simple ways, but personally, I prefer putting it in a small bottle spray and just spray it on a cotton pad whenever I need it.


For me, I use it everyday for my face skin.

I just clean off my face with that before I wash my face.


ALL make up, from powder, blush on, eyeshadow, etc. (even EYE LINER or EYE DEFINER) come off

and

I LOVE to leave it on my face for a while before I wash it off: I feel my skin becomes so smooth after that ^^



! Use the EXTRA virgin oil!

It’s better for you skin than the more processed one.


I do NOT guarantee that this will suit ALL skin types


My skin type is dry to combination; and I found this to be very excellent for my skin type.

NOT ONLY THAT, someone I know with a combination to oily skin used this and felt the benefits as well!

He even use this more than I do.


So, I think, just GIVE IT A TRY.


Do it just from cleaning face skin and wash it off right away until leaving it on your face for a while if it works for you. :)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Enough about the face skin~~

let’s move on to the whole body skin – shall we? =)


Can olive oil be used for the whole body? Yes, it can.


If you google it, some people even find it to be very beneficial as moisturizer and massage oil.


Personally, it doesn’t really work for me as a moisturizer.

I don’t know why, but my skin is more “moisturized” with the regular cream.

But, yeah, again, GIVE IT A TRY.


However, I do NOT recommend this for outdoor usage.

Reasons: Oil + Heat (sunshine) = [burnt]



So, that’s it!

I just couldn’t tell how WONDERFUL olive oil is for my skin – I LOVE it so much!

And I hope it does wonders for your skin as well!

Have fun with it!

Feel free if you need further information :)
