Awwwwwright guys, fess’ up. We’re all getting a little bored holed up in our homes now… and we still have at least 3 more weeks to go. Even sleep has become boring for some of us.

Flexible working hours, a few weeks of leave, and not having to lose the fight against time to make that 9am meeting are certainly privileges that I would LOVE to have… just not under these circumstances.

With the restrictions that come with the circuit breaker (which may or may or may not be extended), I’m already starting to find even sleep boring.

But as they say, when life gives you lemons…you do what you have to do with it. The silver lining in the midst of all the boredom? My skin getting to breathe freely because every day is #barefaced day.

And of course, I HAD to do some online skincare shopping, and keep up to speed with the latest products hitting the market

Here are some of my choice picks for my skincare haul.


Flawless Complexion Clearing Serum, USD$81

SW1 Royal Jelly Essence, USD$68

Like its name suggests, this is essentially chicken essence for the skin.

Formulated with royal jelly extracts combined with a cacophony of essential fullerenes, vitamins and minerals, this product is perfect for this circuit breaker period, where your skin is bare and barely exposed to environmental pollutants and UV damage.

The watery texture of this essence gently glides onto the skin and rehydrates it extensively, and is also the perfect antidote for skin irritation, which I suffer from time to time.
