Lots have happened in the past few weeks, Ai somehow has lost in touch with me since two weeks ago so I hope she is doing ok :) I have also experienced a lot change in my life. I believe when God has closed a door on you; He will open a window for you somewhere else; and believing that tomorrow will be a better day.
Getting a little off the topic here, ok back to the fun stuff :) I have started using tsubaki (camellia) oil as a face massage oil since about 3 weeks ago; and I have really liked it so far. I did some research prior to starting it and apparently tsubaki oil is very close to the natural oil that our skin produces. I'm a huge believer in natural ingredients, and I happen to owe one bottle which I originally purchased for hair; however I have only used it once because it was way too oily for my hair type.
I use it 2 times a week after shower. The steps:
- spray some spring water or your toner onto face
- mix 3~4 drops of tsubaki oil and spring water/toner
- apply to face and neck
- no need to apply more stuff and just go to bed :)
Usually I massage for about 5 mins; it's not a quick fix for any type of skin problem. It's more about improving the general texture of the skin.Definitely give it a try if you can get your hands on a bottle. From what I know Oshima is the most famous brand for tsubaki oil.
I naturally have quite fair skin, however I prefer the glowy and sun kissed look for summer; as the weather is getting warmer I have started using some bronzer; recently my favourite is the Lise Watier Satellite Soleil Doux; it's a subtle bronzer/blush/highlighter with quite fine texture. I'm using the old package; the new one is so much cuter~~ i couldn't find a new package pic of this shade.
I use the 3 colours outside on whole face; the white to highlight T-zone, under eye and cheek bone; and use the middle bronzer to contour my face. What I love about it is that the 3 outside colours have very nice sparkles while the bronzer is pretty much matt; I hate shiny/sparkling bronzonrs... cuz I use them to contour my face not only as blush.
