Review: Mentholatum Sunplay Clear Water SPF 50 PA+++

Summer or not, I am adamant with sunscreen use, and recently, a local drugstore is finally selling one of the sunscreens I've been dying to try.

Review: Human Heart Nature Sunflower Beauty Oil (or any other sunflower oil)

Today, I will be reviewing a product which is quite intriguing for me, thanks to my office mate's very energetic raving and it's purported  "23 miracles in a single bottle".

5 reasons to start reading ingredient lists on your cosmetic products

There's a special-snowflake-harboring saying I used to always hear from my mom every time I go home crying because some kids told me I was ugly: it's what inside that counts. But even if I've grown to accept my looks, I still hold the cringe-worthy advice dear, especially with skin care.

There are women who refuse to think critically at the sight of fancy boxes, smell of subtle notes and high price tags. There are people whose skin might be too sensitive or problematic, yet they try various products until they finally find by accident what would work for them or until they finally give up with the mess on their faces. There are greenwashed consumers who automatically dismiss perfectly safe products just because "the ingredients are hard to read, therefore it is harmful", then swap these working, cheap products with more expensive and less effective, "earth-friendly" ones.

If you are one of those, or just curious, this one's for you.
