 My skin after using KOSE INFINITY Deep Protection UV. There is a photo below which show the differences (before and after).

My review:
This is my first attempt using sun block with PA++++ (4+). I find this sunscreen really amazing, first of all, although it has high SPF content of 50 which provide long lasting UV protection against harmful UV-A and UV-B rays, but the texture of it is very light-weight(watery light) and did not leave any greasy residue. It melts easily into the skin without much effort (it feels like wearing nothing at all) and enhance my uneven skin tone ^_^ My skin is brighten up instantly and ready to go! I am assured to be safe under the sun and more confident of my skin protection when doing outdoor activities.

Infinity Kose Deep Protection UV SPF50+/PA++++, $54, is available from all Kose counters in Singapore.

Best Selling Serum! - Hyaluronic Acid Serum

Hyaluronic Acid is one of the main components of the skin's dermis and horny layer. It can hold 6 liters of water per 1 gram and it works to keep water in the skin. At the age of 60, Hyaluronic Acid will be about one third of what a baby has, but it decreases as you get older. So it is necessary to supply more of this moisturizing factor with age.

Hyaluronic Acid is good for dry skin and inner dry. It has a high reputation of permeability.

Directions: Mix one drop each serum on to palm and apply on to cleansed skin. 

Noticed that the texture of Hyaluronic Acid Serum is slightly thicker and more concentrated than usual serum that I have tried.

After a while, Hyaluronic Acid Serum quickly absorbed into my skin, leaving it supple and matte ^_^ with ample of moisture it needs!

Odbo - Aqua Soothing essence

Bought this skincare recently, going to give it a try! Its Odbo -  Aqua Soothing Essence!
Heard its very famous and well-known in Korea ^_^
Odbo Aqua Soothing Silky Essence 80 ml - It claim as Visible smoothing and revitalizing beauty performance
Trying it on my skin with just 1 pump

Spread evenly over my skin is gently

Take a closer look, after spreading over my skin for < 1 min, the essence turns into water droplets. In my daily skincare regime, usually I will pat around my skin for better absorbency.

Take a look now....my skin is matte, non-oily and more healthy-looking!

My review:
When I was being recommended to Odbo Aqua essence, initially my thoughts was ...its just another skincare product....nothing special. However, when using it for the first time, I like its light scented and its texture...so smooth and yet non-oily....suitable for my sensitive skin ^_^ Usually I apply Odbo soothing essence after my toner, it just melts on my skin! My skin is hydrated instantly and it left a matte finish with healthy glow =)
