Review: RMK Face Protector N SPF 31 +

Rating: 4/5

Plus sides: Hydrating, is absorbed quickly

Downside: Contains Merylparaben & other Parabens ): Is pricey considers the amount of sunscreen inside.
only PA+ when it comes to UVB protection.

The sunscreen itself is a light white cream which is hydrating and gets absorbed very quickly. Very good for mornings when one is in a rush to apply on other makeup after. Also very suitable for dry skin or skin that will be experiencing air conditioning for long hours.
I’ve only been using it for a short while and I have a leetle difficulty getting the sunscreen out of the tube. I was so freaked, you mean.. it’s finishing already??? Although I admit I use a potent amount of sunscreen.
It is afterall, your greatest Anti-Aging tool. For me, it definitely is (:
Because RMK Face protector N is only PA +, I make sure the makeup products I use after that have more sunscreen. yes, this may seem ‘kiasu’ to you, but honestly, I cannot further emphasize the importance of sunscreen.
I sound like my Mum, and this advice came from her. yes (:

All in all, I enjoy using this sunscreen but would prolly venture to explore others (:

Review: RMK Liquid Foundation in 102

Altas, it is true. Those rumors you’ve been hearing/reading. RMK makes base foundations that looks absolutely natural. For a girl looking for the no-makeup makeup look, you’re in for a treat. RMK liquid foundations come in tones for both pink-based and yellow-based tones, very suitable for Asians.

1. RMK wears like a dream on the skin. I was so excited after the SA applied on a fresh makeup for me, complete with RMK makeup base and RMK liquid foundation (102 for me). It looks absolutely lovely and NATURAL. Correction, I looked absolutely lovely (: (Sorry, I am not in the habit of taking photos) Just take my word. haha.

I bought both the makeup base and liquid foundation. The texture is very watery and blends very easily.
BUT… yes, the downside of the foundation:
1. For someone with mildly combination oily skin, I can get by with dabbing at my nose every few hours, but this foundation would NOT work for someone with very oily skin. This RMK foundation has poor oil control.
2. It can accentuates fine lines. It accentuated some fine lines around my mouth. But I haven’t got any very deep ones, so I am okay. But for more mature skins, this might not have sufficient coverage. Also, if you prefer completely flawless outlook (yes I don’t), you prolly wouldnt like this.

But for me, this is a 4/5. Because I really enjoy the natural coverage (:
It isn’t so cheap though, retails at SGD70 at Taka and Isetan Scotts.
