A few weeks ago I was featured in The West Australian Newspaper, in a beauty feature about winter skin care, along with 2 other Perth personalities, Carly Paiker (jewellery designer) and Jessica Gomes (model).

This is what my bit says:

Karen Cheng, Award-winning blogger of Snippets of Life at www.karencheng.com.au. Cheng writes about lifestyle and fashion while juggling family commitments.

It’s important to protect your skin from UV rays, even in the winter and I like Mecca To save Face SPF30+; it’s weightless, non-greasy and feels great on my skin.

For my hands I use L’Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream. I love the smell and the moisture boost.

Jurlique Purely Age-Defying Eye Cream is wonderful. It reduces puffiness around the eye and smells lovely.

If my skin is in need of a boost, I put a few drops of Trilogy Certified Organic Rosehip Oil on my face at night. I love the feeling of my skin the next morning.

SK-II Facial Treatment Essence and SK-II Skin Signature Moisturising Cream are also great for perking up your skin. After a few days my skin always feels smooth and radiant.

Before going out I use Napoleon Perdis Auto Pilot Pre-Foundation Skin Primer – it makes my foundation sit and look amazing.

I also love Burt’s Bees Lip Balm – makes my lips soft and kissable – and Bobbi Brown SPF15 Tinted Moisturiser.

Big thanks for Maya for writing it up, and Pia for scanning the article!
