Schaf Product Review - Skincare Product That Uses ONLY Natural Ingredients & Hydration Technology + GIVEAWAY!

Recently, I received a range of products from Schaf for a beauty review! Unlike other skincare brands, Schaf's products did not come in any fancy packaging as they believe in delivery quality in their products rather than hyping up them up in its product packaging. I mean, you want people to buy your products because they work, and not only because they look pretty on your vanity table, right?

What makes Schaf's products so special is that they contain a natural blend of plant extracts formulated to clean, nurture, and protect your skin, utilizing best natural and organic ingredients. 

Also, they have added a high-performance, oil-free moisture binding component that is not only effective on oily and dry skin, but especially for those with sensitive skin - making sure that your skin stays hydrated even after using them. 

Best part? Their products are 100% natural, and even suitable and ideal for vegans! They are also suitable for both male and female use! 


What makes the products at Schaf different from other skincare brands is that they focus on a hydration technology With a nourishing blend of organic plant extracts, along with hyaluronic acid and peptides, they deliver a dose of oil-free hydration and a dynamic anti-aging boost to the skin!

With all that said, let's move on to my review of the products! 

1) Schaf Hydrating Only Daily Cleanser


I first started off with the Schaf cleanser, that is a gentle, low-foaming cleanser that is suitable for all skin types. The product had a nice coconut scent to it, infused with ingredients like Chamomile Oil, Aloe and Cucumber to soothe any redness on your skin and to make sure that it's moisturised! 


And as what it is promised, you can't exactly see the cleanser on my face even though I've applied it on as it does not foam as much as other cleansers. 


You'll just need to apply a small amount on your face for full coverage. The product did not leave my skin feeling squeaky clean, which is also a good sign as it shows that it did not strip all of the moisture off my face. After using the cleanser, I also felt that my face had a subtle glow to it!

2) Schaf White Lava Purifying Scrub



After cleansing, I moved on to using the scrub. As I'm someone who often uses makeup, it is extremely important to cleanse my face of any impurities, and sometimes, cleansers alone are not sufficient to achieve that.

Therefore, for those who are facing the same issues as me, it is important that you exfoliate once every 2-3 days to make sure that you have removed all of the impurities and dead skin on your face. It also helps to keep your skin smooth and refreshed!  


The product is a scrub with white lava particles and ground apricot seeds that polishes away dead skin cells, dirt and debris. All you have to do is move your fingers in a circular motion for around 2-3 minutes for the product to take its effect! 


Check out the little white lava particles and ground apricot seeds! You'll definitely see the immediate results after rinsing off your face - well, at least for me! I mean, I'm not sure if it's psychological, but I really did feel that my skin was so much cleaner and smooth after using the products. It helps my makeup glide on easier too! 

3) Schaf Radiance and Firming Serum

For those who do not have serums in your skincare regime, it's high time you adopt it. For those who might now know, serums are essential in reducing fine line, wrinkles and helps to lighten the blemishes on your skin - another important product to help your skin achieve its youthful glow. 


For serums, it's best to apply them in the mornings and at night after your cleansing routine, and before applying your moisturizer. 

Like most serums, the Radiance and Firming Serum from Schaf was very fluid and glided on well on my skin. It also absorbed really quickly and had a pleasant scent to it. 

4) Schaf Nutritive Daily Moisturiser 



This was one of my favourite products from Schaf! Unlike most moisturisers, the Nutritive Daily Moisturiser from Schaf had a mousse-like texture to it which made the application an effortless process. 


The moisturizer too, was extremely lightweight and prepared with a nourishing blend of plant extracts along with hyaluronic acid and peptides - giving an anti-ageing boost to your skin. It also has Shea Butter in it!

Just a word of advice -  if you want the moisturizer to absorb quicker into the skin, just apply a small pump will do. And yes, it's extremely hydrating as well! 

 5) Schaf Nutritive Eye Cream


I'm was not one who indulged in eye creams in the past, as I felt that I did not had any use for it. But ever since I started working and my eye bags started showing (it's really horrible), I have been sourcing for the right eye cream for me - and so that they do not have oily granules on my eyes as well. 


This product is perfect for both men and women, and extremely important for anyone who do not want to develop fine lines or wrinkles under your eyes! Personally, since I have just started using it, I can't exactly comment on its effectiveness but I mean, prevention is better than cure, right? 

6) Schaf Ultimate Comfort Shaving Cream


I didn't have a use for this because I do waxing, but I asked my bf to try it out for me. This product can be used for both men and women, and is packed with natural lubricants to soften hair and provide optimum slip for a supremely close, comfortable shave!

It also reduces the "drag” that can cause “razor burns”, and is fragrance-free and soap-free for even the most sensitive skins.

His verdict? Well, he practically uses it every day now since it leaves a smooth after-shave feeling for him! (his words, not mine).

IT Cosmetics Make Up Review + My 6 Favourite Picks From The Collection!

If you ask me about underrated skin care or make up brands, IT Cosmetics definitely fal...



If you ask me about underrated skin care or make up brands, IT Cosmetics definitely falls right into the category.

Personally, when it comes to makeup, I'm not a huge fan of change. I mean, we don't always get makeup that suits our skin, and being someone that has pretty sensitive skin, I tend to be very cautious when it comes to what I slap on my face every day. 

Therefore, when I learned that IT Cosmetics was developed with leading plastic surgeons with clinical results and proven to be extremely hydrating, I was so stoked to try them out! Best part? They are anti-ageing too! 


My first impression of IT Cosmetic's product packaging was that they were absolutely classy and alluring with the genius use of black and silver hues. 





Most of their products came with a transparent section which shows the exact shade of the product. After using these products for a week, I have come up with a list of my favourite products from the IT Cosmetics range. 

For those who are interested to find out more about them, here are my 6 Favourite Picks from the collection! 

1) IT Confidence In The Cream



Touted as the moisturising super cream, this Confidence in a Cream is said to boost your confidence by filling any lines and plumping your skin instantly. 

Well, since I'm still in the midst of using it, I can't exactly justify its effectiveness. What I love about this moisturiser though, is its citrusy fragrance and easy application. The moisturiser has extremely quick absorption, and sinks right into my skin once I've applied it - a good base to cushion the makeup that I apply.

2) Bye Bye Under Eye Anti-Ageing Concealor  


Left undereye: Applied. 
Right undereye: Not applied 
(Pardon my horrible eye bags!)

This,my friends, is by far one of the best concealors I have ever encountered. It definitely lives up to what it's said to deliver, and is waterproof so you won't have to worry about any smudge issues throughout the day! 

It takes quite a while for the viscous concealer to be dispensesd from the tube, and it layers on very well without emphasising on the fine lines on my undereye. I'm also using this concealer for blemishes on my face, and I must say that the coverage is amazing. 

3) IT Colour Correcting Full Coverage Cream

Prior to reviewing the product, I have seen countless of beauty bloggers reviewing about the CC Cream. The IT Cosmetics Correcting Full Coverage Cream offers a few shades when it comes to their CC cream - Fair, Light, Medium, Tan, and Rich. The product is also clinically proven and promises 179% of skin hydration within the span of a few days.

Personally, I love how the CC Cream was highly pigmented and was almost like a foundation. The product is easily blendable, and sits well on my skin without making it look too fair. If you feel that the coverage is not enough, you can also build it up to achieve your intended coverage! 

4) IT Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara + Tightline Mascara





Other than lipsticks, I'm also a huge mascara hoarder as I believe in the saying that our eyes are the windows to our souls. The IT Cosmetics Super Elastic Stretch Volumising Mascara is said to transform our lashes with super volume, super length and super elastic stretch.

The product increased the length of my eyelashes quite substantially when I applied it. It doesn't make my lashes clumpy and the product deposits evenly on every lash. The only thing that didn't sit quite well with me was that it wasn't waterproof and for someone with teary eyes, I have to constantly check to see if I have undereye smudges.

That aside, it really does deliver as promised!

5) IT Cosmetics Vitality Face Disk


 

If you are into contouring and highlighting, this palette is a must-have. For a novice like me who's still learning the techniques of contouring, this palette was a great experimenting tool. The colour builds up slowly and is hydrating at the same time. 

The palette consists of an Anti-Aging Matte Bronzer, Radiance Luminizer & Brightening Blush Palette. The palette, too, diminishes the appearance of lines and wrinkles and nourishes your skin with hydrating, anti-aging hydrolyzed collagen, silk and peptides for the most beautiful results. 

6) IT Cosmetics Blurred Lines Lipstick


I received the IT Cosmetics Blurred Lines Lipstick shade in Je Ne Sais Quoi, which was a sweet pinkish-hued lipstick. The lipstick glides on easily, and deposits a good amount of semi-sheer lip colour.  You can also choose to build it up to an opaque shade. I love that this shade is suitable for everyday wear!

Here's the full makeup look using the IT Cosmetics products!





The IT Cosmetics range is now available at Sephora.sg and will be available in ALL Sephora stores from 1st September 2016!
