My Skincare Haul: Muji, Garnier, Renew

My next Skincare Haul. I have been buying a lot of skincare products recently. I think it's the Christmas season and that gives me excuses to buy more skincare products. 

MUJI Cleansing Oil
 I have been reading good thing about this cleansing oil and since my Hada Labo Makeup Remover was about to finish, I decided to try this next. Since many people compare MUJI with Fancl and Shu Uemura Cleansing Oils, I thought I's give this one a try too. The price is cheaper too at S$13 for 200ml.

Garnier Pure Active Roll-on for Blemishes
 Niu Er introduced this on the 20/12/2010 episode of Nu Ren Wo Zui Da (a Taiwanese beauty programme) and I went to Watsons to get one the next day. The selling point of this pimple roll-on gel is the 2% Salicylic Acid, which is a BHA that will help not only in drying up the pimple, but also to boost skin turnover via exfoliation so that the pimple scar fades faster. It has a high alcohol content and with the metal ball roll-on, it feels cool on touch. I think the metal ball design does not seem that hygienic but I wanted to try the 2% salicylic acid. There is a discount now so the price was $15.90.
Update: My review here.

Renew Rosehip Oil
 If you've been reading my blog, last year was when I was really into Rosehip Oil. Rosehip Oils contain high essential fatty acids, vitamin E and antioxidants like lycopene and beta-carotene. The Vitamin A also has anti-aging properties. Rosehip Oil helps heal scars, wrinkles and skin cell repair. I did not see any changes in my wrinkle when I used this but I do believe in the beneficial components RHOs contain. Will be adding this to my night time skincare. (I mentioned before that I prefer Trilogy rosehip oil, but Trilogy is only sold at selected Watsons and I didn't see it the last time I was at Ngee Ann City or Raffles City Watsons, so I'm not sure if they're still around. I got Renew as it is available at most Watsons.)

Renew Hydrating Mist Toner
When I got the rosehip oil, I bought this as well as I thought it smelled nice. The ingredients were mainly water, rose water and chamomile extract, so it seemed quite soothing. I am not expecting any effects with this product, I just got it to use together with the rosehip oil. A spray like Avene Thermal Spring Water wold work just as well.
