Lavera Store?

Postby dolphin » Sun, 03 Sep 2006 8:51 am

Hi guys,

There used to be a Lavera skincare and cosmetics store in Citylink mall ( they sell those nature-friendly, organic stuff ).....

But the store doesn't seem to be there anymore...

Does anyone know their new location?

Thanks ;D

There is a store in the new part of Raffles City basement that sells Lavera, along with a couple of other brands. Sorry, I can't remember the name.

I know you're not asking for comments but, honestly, I tried a couple of their products and didn't like them at all. For one thing, I got horribly burned in a very short time after using their sunscreen, and would question its stability. I went straight back to Dermalogica.

oooo thx!!! Will check it out!!!

Well about their sunscreen, did you use the greenish SPF 25 one with chlorophyll? It left a pale cast on my skin and was greasy...but it worked on me much better than the SPF 100++ Japanese sunscreens ( yes, Shiseido included ) which turned me pinkish red in record time....

Hey i haven't tried Dermalogica.... Maybe I shall !! I desperately need good sun screens cos I'm out in the sun almost all the time....Just haven't really found one that agrees with my sensitive skin yet.....

Oh it's a couple of years ago now, I think it was SPF25 but not sure about the chlorophyl.

I have a Dermalogica SPF25 tinted moisturiser for my face; they have others but I'm not sure how high they go. They have a decent website you could check out. I have very sensitive skin too.

Actually I recall a thread from another forum recently, somebody was going snorkelling and wanted something similar. Myself and a few others recommended Banana Boat's Babies' formulations - I have SPF50.

Thanks a bunch, Seasider!

Navigated through the dermalogica site... Think will go get myself the SPF 25 for "very sensitive skin" .... However, it's for "dry skin" ...Not too sure how that'll agree with my combination + very sensitive skin....

But notice how the weather around here has been getting rather freaky recently? Can feel my skin burning at 10am...Didn't use to happen until around 1pm... So am willing to fork out more so long as I get a reliable sunscreen :)
