Husband & Wife's Budget Skin and Body care products for less than $100

I'm not fussy about the products I use but it has to be VALUE FOR MONEY. Ask me to rattle the names of the ingredients and I'll tell you I have no clue. However, I make it a point to avoid products with paraben. Whether it helps prevent us from getting cancer, I'm not sure, but if I can avoid it, I'll try to lah.

3 years ago, I shared about my budget skincare routine here.

3 years on, I reckon it's time for me to refresh my sharing - not just to include the budget body care products I use, but to share what my husband uses along with me!😊

Below are the list of items my hubby and I use along with their indicative prices. A pity we can't head to JB anytime soon as some items can be bought there at a slightly cheaper price!

I alternate these 2 facial cleansers as I read that I'm not supposed to use AHA product daily (you can read more about the benefits of AHA here).

Once to twice a week, I'd apply the clay mask after cleansing my face. Given how big and cheap the products are, I'd apply the black sugar scrub on my body to exfoliate as well. There's a few versions to choose from, but the ones I'm using are below. I bought these 2 years back in JB and till date, I still have quite a lot left haha!
Here's a tip - I usually buy refills as it is cheaper! It's supposedly more environmentally friendly too. 
I've used eversoft for years and tried all flavours except lavender (cause I hate lavender smell). My personal favourite is the yuzu one

I got to know more about Sukin when I went to Australia and was hooked that their products were paraben free. The prices were really affordable as well! Comparatively, Singapore prices are not that cheap, but because it's paraben free, I've been using the Hydrating version for close to 2 years.

I've blogged about this 3 years ago and till date, I'm still using this brand. While some people says toners can be skipped, I'm too used to slapping it on after I cleanse my face, otherwise I feel my pores are not reduced! I have always been using the rose petal version but you can try out other versions too!

Ok, this is a product that I don't scrimp on as it is really suitable for me. 
When I was younger, I used to be really cheapo by using sample skincare products. While they didnt do much harm to my face, I didnt feel any skin improvements either. Some gave me milia seeds so I stopped. That was when I tried a sample from Origins and it blew my mind. It is rich enough for my face, yet doesn't cause break outs. A 75ml tube has lasted me more than 1 year - till date, I still have half tube left. A 5 cents scoop is good enough for my whole face. 

For this, since it is expensive, I usually buy during promotions. 


Body Moisturiser - Sukin Men Moisturiser 225ml $9
Yes, I use men's products😛I bought this for my hubby in Aussie because it's paraben free and smells of citrus🍊🍋 but he seldom use it! Since the Origins moisturiser is expensive, I'd use this Sukin one for my neck and arms. $9 goes a long way man. Now I miss Australia 😢A similar product cost $18 online...goodness!

I finally cross $700k networth, after 1 year 4 months

I wondered how I should kickstart this post - should I be positive or negative about this? After 1 year 4 months, I finally crossed $700k in networth - returning back to where I've been at, back in Dec 2021.  I am disappointed.  For the past many years, I've always been growing my networth, at around $100-$150k/year. I had big plans to hit a net worth of $850k by December 2022, but the universe had other plans for me. Instead, I only managed to reach $646k, leaving me with a $204k gap to my target.  Ever since I became more aggressive in my "investment" portfolio in 2021, being sucked by greed to deploy most of my cash into stocks and crypto, I fell heavily, along with the crashes. Crypto wiped out 5 digits savings, so did the stock market.  To be honest, ever since the crashes and a bad hit to my net worth, I actually didn't do anything special to improve. I didn't make drastic spending cuts, I didn't stop my holidays, I didn't continue investing (no

First CPF top up in Jan 2023 and tax relief concerns

Detailing my yearly CPF top-up and thoughts.  This is my 8th year of top-up. 1. Top-up $2.5k to Medisave via Paynow Did a $2,500 top up to my Medisave, bringing it to 2023 MA ceiling of $68,500. Done the same for my husband as well. 2. On hold - To top up $5.5k to SA or no? Contrary to the past where I top-up at the start of the year, I have decided to hold off the top-up. A) Running out of cash Firstly, I'm running out of cash. I'm berating myself for degrading to the past where I look forward to my monthly income for cashflow. So I can build up my $100k capital in savings account again, given the current high interest environment.  B) Hitting FRS soon = no tax relief Secondly, I'm concerned about reaching FRS too soon.  The FRS this year is $198,800. I'm now sitting on ~$157k SA which means $41,800 away from reaching this ceiling.  I know some people encouraged maxing this out ASAP. But, as I've crossed 6 digits annual income, maxing FRS soon meant lower tax relie

Starting 2023 with extra $9,979.20

Happy 2023~! I woke up feeling not very positive. It seems like I've brought forward my 2022 negative thoughts along. I ought to be more optimistic! Anyway, my best way of welcoming the new year is to count the new inflow of $ and here's my CPF interest for 2022: Have you check your CPF interest yet?
