Review: Etude House AC Clinic Acne Foam Cleanser

This is what I'm gonna review today! I've always wanted to try this foam cleanser. Received this from my from my friend for quite some time already but only tried it recently.

Here is a closer look at the product. Etude House's products always has attractive packaging. Each range has their own unique distinctive packaging. People like tend to fall for their marketing strategy haha. This product is non-comedogenic; meaning it will not aggravate your acne.

Review: Hada Labo Whitenning Lotion Refill

I just finished my first bottle for Hada Labo Whitening Lotion. So far loving the result I get from it except for the sunscreen lotion part as I have mention in my review for the lotion itself. (Click here to see) 
Last friday after my driving lesson, I decided stop by Watsons to look for new products for my skin. Guess what? I saw Hada Labo Whitening Lotion Refill. So, I bought it. But, from the packaging I think Hada Labo actually made some improvement to the lotion. "New Nano Formula" is printed on the packaging. Anyway, I am still loving it despite the changes.

Some pictures:

The refill comes in a blue colored packaging that is similar to some detergent refill that you can find in supermarket. However, the packaging comes with a special and smart feature that prevents you from spilling these precious lotion while pouring in your empty Hada Labo container.

How to pour using the special feature :D
The special feature that I am talking about is actually a a small plastic thinggy that can be bent into a curve like structure making the refill satchel to have a tube like structure.

Cut at the dotted line
Trying to cut and take picture
Tube structure that I've mentioned
Mission accomplished
  • Its is cheaper compared to buying a new bottle of Hada Labo (The refill costed me $18 while a new bottle will cost me $22)
  • Its more environmentally friendly then buying a new bottle
  • I feel that the new formula makes the Hada Labo less stick after application
  • Loving the tube structure that assist in pouring

  • Cant think of anything at the moment. 
I will rate this 5/5.

P.S. One good news! I just passed my driving test.. ke ke ke

Review: Chanel Chance Anyone?

On July 3rd, my twins and I made a short trip to Langkawi. Guess what? It is known as galore of duty free shops that sell cheap chocolates, liquor and lastly....

Perfume is simply love! I started using perfume when I was 13 years old after my eldest sister introduced it to me. It really made me feel good inside out. During that time I was using Elizabeth Arden Green Tea then followed by Burberry Weekends, Gucci Flora, Salvatore Ferragamo Incanto and etc. Currently, I am using DKNY pure. 

So, when were in Langkawi I bought 2 perfume and one of is Chanel chance eau de toilette 100ml!  The usual price in Singapore is about $140 and this time we bought it for a cheaper price.

Some pictures of the perfume glass bottle:

Did some editing.. hehehe
There a metal strip around the sides of the bottle.
Metal plate at the bottom that says "MADE IN FRANCE"
The cap of the perfume with Chanel logo embedded
Pros about the perfume is it's sweet smell that last throughout the day!  The smell of the perfume is floral with a hint of grapefruit. Of course, it may not be true for all of us as it depends on the chemistry between your body smell and also the perfume. As such, it may not last long on some people and smell maybe slightly different for some. The cons of this perfume is that some may that the smell is not to their liking or it is too strong for them.

I hope you guys find this informative. /blush

If you come into my heart ...

I now present to you the korean drama ...

I've been watching . The title is 'A Gentleman's Dignity'. Unique story line. Hot ahjusshi that has gain the nickname F40. So why not right. Their original sound tracks (ost) are pretty good too. You know how these sound tracks can dramatize the mood while you are watching.

In one of its episodes, a main lead Rok Hyun did cover of one of my all-time favorite song. I swear I actually re-winded the player to listen the song again and again. 

How can I not rape the replay button?? tell me? After listening to this I immediately made the connection to MBLAQ's ft. C-luv if you come into my heart. Well it is one of my favorite songs. Nevertheless, I do know MBLAQ made a cover and they are not the original singer. Then I found out the original song came out in 1989 (way before I was born) by Jo Duk-bae. I gotta applaud the composer of the song. I mean the lyrics are so poetic! Check out both songs below and tell me what you think!

Review: Himalaya Herbals Clear Complexion Whitening Face Wash

If your a regular reader of my blog, you will most probably realized that I am actually a fan of whitening skincare products! This is my second time trying out Himalaya Herbals product and for this product I love and hate it at the same time.

This Clear Complexion Whitening Face Wash contains several unique and natural main ingredients and have been found to be beneficial for our skin. Licorice, White Dammer and lastly Saffron.
Licorice and White Dammer lightens the skin tone and restores our skin's natural fairness whereas Saffron (the most expensive herb that can be found in most Indian cuisines, which l love so much) surprisingly has an enhancing properties that helps clear spots and blemishes.

Beautiful pictures for my dear readers :D

The texture of the cleanser is gooey and smells like baby Johnson's shampoo that we all have used before when we were young hehehe!

What I like about this face wash is that my skin feels really squeaky, clean and smooth after use. My cheek kind of look like "porcelain" .... (LOL! I sound cocky saying that my skin look like porcelain... but I cant find a perfect word to describe it.... maybe clear and shiny).

Now the cons, it made the sides of my nose very dry and I have to scrape off some of the dry skin which is quite a painful experience for me! I am not sure why this happened. But I have come with a conclusion that this face wash is not compatible for my skin.
Cr to: owner
 I will rate this product 2/5.

For those who have tried this face wash before do share your experience of using this face wash!

Review: Dr. Morita Whitening Essence Mask + Side talk

I am not sure how many of you have heard of this brand of mask which originated from Taiwan and is also made in Taiwan. On the month of May, my sister made a two week trip to Taiwan (for schooling purpose) and bought lots of masks. I didn't expect much from the mask as it is some brand that I have not heard before. Apparently, my sister said that this brand of mask seems quite popular there as the mask keep going out of stock on the shelves. Surprisingly, I really like the mask.
The mask is really soothing and cooling on the skin. Plus, look at the amount essence inside the sachet!
The essence is plentifull such that it is dripping when I took out the mask!
The outcome of using the mask is promising. I observe that my skin is more clearer, the scars I facial treatment (due to my acne) are greatly reduced after I used the masks fro several times. Those bumps due to white heads at the sides of my cheek is also reduced. (Yea recently I get lots of of white heads as I often touch my cheek)

In overall I feel that it is a great mask! My rating for this 5/5.

Side track!

This few weeks, I've been obsessed with EXO-K! They are charismatic and give the same pretense as Taemin. I feel that Taemin will fit perfectly inside the group. They are also quite shy and their shyness can be quite epic. I wish that I have a small brother like them XD!~ And yes! I have to admit Baekyun and D.O are creeping into my biase list... kekeke

Review: Nivea Angel Star Deodorant Anti-Perspirant

I going to do a short review Nivea Angel Star Deoderant. Even though it is not exactly a skin product however I still would like to share my views on it. It is supposedly my second buys of this. What I really like about this product is its smell. Unlike some deodorant, it does not produce foul smell when mixed with your sweat. However instead the smell get stronger when I sweat more. Hmm... its kind of hard for to explain the smell ... I would say its candy-like and shampoo kind of smell.
Finished using my first one
It is also  anti-perspiration. However, if I were to be outdoor for an extended period of time (with very humid and warm weather in Singapore) my under-arm will starts to wet a bit. Its kind of inevitable.

Thirdly, it is alcohol free so it will not cause your under-arm skin to be too dry and flaky which is good.

And lastly, it is dermatological proven to be skin tolerance so you guys don't have to worry about allergic reactions.

If you guys have tried this product I would love to know your views about this deodorant. You can do so by leaving you comments at the comment section below :D

Review: Mentholatum Acnes Medicated Point Clear

Remember I said I went on a drugstore haul, so Mentholatum Acnes Medicated Point Clear is part of the haul. I've tried some mentholatum products, they doesn't seem to work on my skin. Decided to give this a try because I couldn't find the pimple cream that I always used. My sister also said that she have seen this product in quite a few japanese magazines.

This acne medicated product (as stated from the packaging) is for pimple care + whitening + pore refining. It comes in a roll-on design which is great because I don't need to use my germy hand to touch my pimples when applying it (urggg I swear you wouldn't one to add more germy buddies on your pimples and let them party there).

 This pimple medicated product is not rlly a cream. When I rolled on my skin a very watery liquid comes out. The liquid is transparent too which means you can use it while you're out without having white precipitate on your skin. My pimples starts to dry out a little (not completely) on my third consecutive day of usage. There is no visible change in my blemishes on the third day too. Maybe it needs more time to see visible change. I will rate this product 3.5/5. I find it effective but not strong enough. It takes too long to lighten blemishes and cure pimples. It is also a little pricey for its quality. I paid SGD 9.90 and I have used a better product which is much cheaper. I will review that product in the future *pinky promise*. Okay toodles for now :)

Review: Mogitate Kajitsu Orange Mango

Just went on a drugstore haul and bought lotsa new products and these products will be reviewed in the future. Today I am going to review a new lipice/lipgloss (Mogitate Kajitsu Orange Mango) after I encountered with dry lips these few days in Singapore as the weather has been quite dry these days. It costed me around SGD 5+ as there is a 20% off. The other reasons I bought it are due to its cute packaging and the possibility that my lips are going to smell like orange and mango. It also consists vitamins and ingredients that shield your lips from UV ray. (Yup the nasty UV rays that are quite harmful) Before I start giving more views about this product, I realized that many have already reviewed this product and some of them are sponsored reviews. Nonetheless, I hope this will give an additional or alternative account of this product.

(Some pictures)

For those who can read japanese
Ingredients and product description
I was expecting the stick to be orange or yellow in color
Firstly, I never expected much from this lipice/lipgloss as it is not a dry lips treatment kind of product for very dry lips (and I currently had one). To my surprise, its moisturizing power is actually exceeded my expectation. I used it at night right after I bought it and the next morning, my lips wasnt dry anymore and I was able to easily rub off those dead skin of lips with water. Besides, this lipice wasn't sticky like most of its kind and it gives a slight tingling sensation after application (Maybe due to its menthol content). This lipice has a very nice fruit smell (like orange candy). It is quite a sweet smell. You  can actually smell it when you apply some on your lips. Unfortunately, doesn't last very long. Like after 2min or so it is gone. I believe that you will have to apply it after 3-4hrs outdoor as my lips
doesn't feel moisturized any and I did not feel its presence on my lips after the above mentioned period of time. I will rate this product (4/5). Its not all that fantastic but it is worth the money!

Review: Nature republic UV Lock Flower SPF 50PA+++

As I have mention in the Nature Republic Bloom Kiss review, my friend has also bought me a nature republic sunscreen/sunblock and I am going to review it now. This sunblock is basically the best sunscreen that I have used at the moment. I really love it to the max. It has a nice smell, compatible for my combination skin type and also does not cause pimple nor breakout. This is a powerful sunblock since it is a sunblock with SPF 50. Generally, it suitable for sunny countries like Singapore, Indonesia, Philippines and Malaysia. Higher SPF also means that it is able to shield your skin from most UV rays which is responsible for wrinkles and skin cancer! Let me show you some pictures of the product!

The box

Ingredients. Look out for ingredients that you are allergic to!
The tube (Its 50ml, most likely cant last you for several months)
The sunblock lotion on my skin
The sunblock lotion has a medium like consistency that is able to spread evenly on your skin. Unlike some sunblock it is either too watery (eg. Laneige sunblock) or too thick.
After spreading the lotion on my hand
As you can see the after effect of the lotion is that makes you skin appear slightly lighter than you regular skin tone. The sunblock also smell really nice. I am not good in describing scent... I guess it smell a bit like shampoo. The smell last after 3-5 hours under the sun. PLUS! It really doesn't make skin oily or shiny! I've met tons of sunblock that make you skin appear really shiny and oily... I really hate it!

Thus, I will rate this product 5/5 as it met my requirement of a good sunblock/sunscreen!

Side Talk: Wendy's

Okay so because I've feeling super guilty for being too unhealthy....  junk food, no exercise... *le sign*. I've decided to eat something relatively healthy for dinner one night. Saw a flyer on Wendy's delivery service ... so I was thinking "this is it". I ordered their Garden Salad with Spicy Chicken and Baked Potatoes with Sour Cream & Chives. When I called, the person said it will take 1 hour for them to deliver....righhhht when my house is about 10 minutes from their outlet. McDonald usually take 45 minutes or lesser. For the salad the dressing it separated and for the potatoes the sour cream and chives are separated too. I had really high expectation when I ordered them (for God knows why)... to be honest I was craving for KFC oriental chicken salad which is non-existent now (I WANT YOU BACK)

Back to the topic of Wendy's, the deliver came without utensils (disappointed)...the taste is disappointing too. The chives for the baked potatoes are dried ....oh come on even chives on KFC's cheese fries are fresh. The chicken in the salad is kinda small too... oh well this might be my first and last time eating Wendy's.

For those who frequently read my blog, you must have realized that I have changed my blog template and design. On the right hand side of this page there will be, About Me, Labels, Archives, Blogroll, Tagboard and lastly Live Traffic Feed that shows when and where my readers are from.

If you guys were to scroll down to the end of the page, there will be section on Total Page View that I have attained till today, Followers at which you guys can be one of them if you like my blog and lastly Featured Music at which I will embedded MV of my latest addiction.

Previously, at the featured music section, I placed BrownEyedGirls(브라운아이드걸스) _ Cleansing Cream(클렌징크림).  I really like the song! Nice and unique tune. At the same time the song has a really deep meaning.

However, I decided to change it IU 아이유 - Every End of the Day(스무 살의 봄 - 하루 끝) with english subtitles. Be sure to check it by scrolling down to the end of the page! I'm sure some of you can relate the meaning of the song~ Bye

Review: Nature republic Bloom Kiss Lipstick

I just received  a gift from my friend when she visited korea. She bought me nature republic lipstick and also a sun block. But firstly, I will review the lipstick that she bought me. I was hoping that the liptick will be in the shade of very light pink unfortunately it is not. Nonetheless, I am still okay with this shade of liptick and thankful of the gift.
The lipstick that she bought me is in the shade of pink. I couldn't find much information online at nature republic website on the product information. However, I managed to dig out on the available shades of pink for the liptick. But I am not sure if the following in the complete list of available colors for the line. The color code of the lipstick I received from my friend is OR301!
Manage to dig out something from gmarket
Here are some pictures of the product and the packaging.
Bloom Kiss
Back view
Top view of the box!
Brand new!
 After trying it out for once, I feel that it really look nice on my skin tone and I love the colour. Guess what! It is close to the color I am looking for! XD Yeap! Though I wanted it to be slightly lighter. Let me show you the picture!
Pardon for my big nose HAHA!
The lipstick is quite moisturizing but its not enough for those who have dry lips. So I highly recommend that you guys use a moisturizing treatment lip balm or etc before using the liptick. This is  ensure that the lipstick and glide smoothly on your lips. Hence, giving you a new pretty lips. The lipstick also smell abit like cherry. I'll rate it 4/5 as I really like the colour! Chingu kamsahamnida for your gift /blush

Heres a picture of Taemin! I've been a fan of taemin for a long time. He is so pretty isn't he? I don't mind being a girl and looking like him. Taemin ahhh~ come to noona!
