Let's talk about skin care first.
on top of the @cosme annual ranking (which i've wrote about in a separate entry), @cosme also released a biannual best new makeup awards. it is given to new products that have been released in the past 6+ months. i think they should just name it "best new comer award" to avoid any confusion with their annual ranking (which surveys all products regardless of release dates). in other words, only good products that are newly released can make it into this list.
there several categories, i'll be focusing on the skin care ranking in this entry.
LANCOME | blanc expert essence lotion
a toner that acts like a serum, it brightens the skin and is extremely moisturizing.
ATTENIR | dress lift lotion
FRESHEL | lotion (moist) N
FRESHEL | skin freshener
effective mist that draws moisture from the surrounding towards your skin, perfect for combating dryness during day time.
BENEFIQUE | white retinol essence
CHANEL | hydra beauty micro serum
MINON | aminomoist moisture milk
highly moisturizing without the thick or sticky feeling.
ATTENIR | dress lift day emulsion
COSME DECORTE | cellgenie emulsion white ER (more moist type)
ALLIE | extra UV gel (mineral moist neo)
although it has a very high SPF, the gel is extremely lightweight and is very waterproof.
BIORE | aqua rich watery essence
JILL STUART | relax aqua chiffon protector N
i didn't write about face wash, cream, and lip care as most of the products look really foreign to me. you can check out the ranking by clicking on the respective words!
i really want to get my hands on the freshel skin freshener mist. they're just an all rounder - hydrating, preps your skin for makeup, and sets your makeup. i hope the mist is fine enough, that will be the most important factor in determining how good it really is.
