Hisamitsu Lifecella Eye Masks

SAM_0433 (640x480)
My current favourite eye masks : Lifecella Eye Mask
I first cae across these masks at Watsons Compasspoint when they were having a small sales but I didn't get them as an irritating auntie was squating and hogging the whole shelve to herself! Dafuq! So when I saw these masks again at Guardian i12 Katong, I told myself I had to grab them. WIth the additional 5% discount given when I flash my Shenton medical card, these masks cost me about $6 for a box of 5 pairs. Totally worth it!

My Review:
My undereye area is quite dry from me spending more than 12 hours in a aircondition environment daily. The above masks really does hydrates my undereye and I love the cool feeling upon application. The gel like textured is a plus point as it make sure that the mask stays fitted to the eye area and i can walk, eat, read and watch TV without the fear of dropping the mask. 🙂 See? I can go on and on raving about the masks. But the gel textured is only for the Smooth, Firm and Radiant one. The other 2 are sheet masks that are super soaked with the serum and it simply felt like a 2nd skin on my face. Same, super secure and no need to afraid that it will slip off. The serum are sooooooo much that I apply them to my laugh lines.  If you ask me what is the different between the 3 types, I would truthfully say that I am not sure. Y? Apart from the hydration and slight brightening effect, I think all 3 types feel the same to me. Haha!! I am a blur user but I must mention again that I love the hydration effect.

Right! Read my Raw Job’s Tears Toner review before starting on this would be helpful as it is a continuation 🙂

Raw Job’s Tears Lotion

How this product fare?
It is being label as the The Whitening Appetizer for the skin. The milky lotion whitens the skin, prevents the forming of melanin and hydrates the skin. Sounds amazing for something that only cost SGD 24.90. This lotion is being meant to be used before serum after toner as it claims that the allows active ingredients to work their best. Remember in the toner review post I mention not to dump the cotton pad away? I use it for application of the lotion.

I would pour about a 20cents coin amount on the cotton pad that is already soaked with the toner (use the other side that is clean) and apply the lotion to my face in circular motion avoiding the eye area. I would also follow the steps as mention to press the cotton pad lightly against the pore areas. Upon finishing, i would lightly pat the whole face with my fingertip to make sure that the lotion is being absorbed into my skin. Love the non sticky feeling.
*Do not throw the cotton pad away yet!!!! Remember to also swipe on the neck area!!*

Raw Job’s Tears Serum

Picture taken from www.naruko.sg

How this product fare?
The serum claims Instant Whitening!! I wouldn’t say that it is instant whitening but I do see the brightening effect upon application. I’ve tried the SKII Cellumination Serum and I must say that the 2 are on par!! Sounds amazing huh? SGD28.90 VS SGD199… The SKII Cellumination Serum contains Mica whereas the Naruko Raw Job’s Tears Serum doesn’t. So the latter wins for all I cam say.

Back to my thoughts on the serum.
I usually use 2 pumps on this serum on my whole face and as per the instructions stated on the picture, I do follow step 3 daily, every morning. I love how lightly scented this serum is, or should I say that there is only a very little hint of organic barley scent. The serum absorbs fast into the skin leaving it glowly and smooth. I did not follow by a moisturizer as I am unable to purchase the Morning Yogurt, think they discontinued it.

Overall, I am very satisfied with the Naruko Raw Job’s Tears series as I’ve notice that skin is brighten, the spots on my cheekbone areas does lightens a little and skin is hydrated throughout the day even with the terrible office aircon. I now seldoms apply bb cream, foundation of 2 way cake when I makeup, instead it’s just suncream, a bit of concealer and loose powder as base. Skin is indeed soooooo much better. Do note that this is only my day skin routine as my night is still the SKII lotion, FTE, Loreal YC Pre-Serum and SKII Skin Singature Cream.

All the 3 products are on my repurchase list!

Next, I want to try the below Naruko products!!
AppleSeed Series
Narcissus Series
Rose & Botanic HA Aqua Cubic Jelly Lotion

OKAY!! I need reommendation for a good eyecream to remove fine lines and dark circles… anyone please?

Naruko Raw Job’s Tears Toner

I've been trying out the Naruko Raw Job's Tears Toner, Lotion and Serum for the past 3 weeks and I think it should be time for a review 🙂 Shall start with the Raw Job's Tears Toner

Naruko is a brand that was started by the Skincare Guru Mr Niu-er, also know as Niu-er LaoShi (牛儿老师
Click on the link for more information about the Guru, it will link you to the Naruko website 🙂

Raw Job's tears contains more nutritons that the regular ones and I've seens an Youtube video that mentions for every 1000kg of red job's tears, they are only able to extract 1kg of essential oil which goes into the making of the serum 🙂 WHOA! Sounds very impressing!
The Raw Job's Tears series uses a special technology calls Supercritical CO2 ExtractionTechnology that is able to preserve the complete active ingredient of the red job's tears.

Raw Job's Tears Toner

How this product fare?
This toner is being label as the Key Of Whitening, meaning that is actuallys reset/prep the skin for the whitening magic that the raw job's tears series. Look at the active ingredients!!!! Love how natural Naruko products are!
I uses this product every morning after cleansing the skin, before the lotion and serum. Yes! Naruko products works from toner to lotion then to serum 🙂
I usually pours the amount of about a 50cents coin on a cotton pad and i follow the steps as shown in the picture above.
I love how lightly scented the toner is and how refreshing the skin feels upon patting on. After patting, i will gently press the cotton against my pore areas to make sure that they are hydrated and also on my cheekbone area as I discover that spots are starting to form, BOO!
Just a note, do not throw away the cotton pad at this point! Use it for application of the lotion, I learnt it from the Naruko Youtube videos!

I sincerely believe that the toner works as I can see my face really brightens after 3 weeks of usage 🙂
Of course, it works as I am using the full set… mmmmm… not full yet as they seems to have stop the Morning Yogurt and I can't find it at Watsons 😦 Saw on the website that there is a cream but I am afraid that it might be a little too rich for day usage so I skip it.

Will this be on my repurchase list: YES!!

*Stay tune for review on the Lotion and Serum, promise to get it up real sooonnnnn!!!

From Yellowish to Chocolate

Time to touch up the ugly roots!

Loading a nay photo that I have center parting… the black roots has grown quite a bit and color actually fades to a dirty yellowish tone…. YUCKS!

Saw this cute Palty color kit at Watsons last friday when i was there to get the Liese hair color…. Bimbo me bought this in Dark Chocolate for SGD 16.90

 

It’s cute TTM with the hot pink cup and mixer…. pour both solution and cream into the cup… stir and viola!!!! Foam dye for the hair!

 

Tried it this morning and I still very much prefer the Liese one…. This Palty doesn’t foam up upon application…. Instead, it’s feel like the normal cream hair dye and once I am.done, it sort of chunk up into a lump on my head. The amount is just nice for my thick short hair so please get 2 boxes if you have long hair… though I won’t recommend anyone to get this as I DON’T LIKE IT.

 

Upon washing off the dye, hair is super dry! So dry that I had to use loads and loads of Essential hair treatment to detangle them…. ~(*+﹏+*)~

Tada! The color is not too bad but my roots are still ugly…. at least I am not the dirty yellowish girl now… heh!

 

Shall stick to only Liese! Will be venturing into the darker tones… it makes me younger,  i think… heh heh! (^3^)

Rosette Hello Kitty Facial Wash

Time for a short review of my current favourite facial wash!

SAM_0399 (600x800) (480x640)
The Rosette Hello Kitty Cleansing Wash!
I was first attracted to the Hello Kitty packaging when I was 'window' shopping at Watsons Hougang Point last year. Am so glad that I purchased it as I love the clean feeling it gives. Alternating this with some samples that SKII has given me, Garnier mineral black facial foam, AM/PM Washing Powder, I still very much prefer this.
This is my 4th tube to date and it is very affordable, at $12.90 each and tell me, who can resist such a cute packaging!!!

Love the light fruity scent of the wash. It contains very small scrub bits but it is gentle enough for daily usage.
Skin feels clean and no tight feeling upon washing off. I remember that there are another 3 more types at Watsons… Blue for Acne prone skin, Green for peeling wash and another Pink for Collagen boosting.

Go try it and hope you will like it as much as i do 🙂

The Nature Lab Makeup Remover Serum

24 hours a day is not enough!!
This is the most common statement that we keep hearing day in day out and lotsa beauty companies are launching their 1 step makeup removing products…
I am a all time lover of Bifesta which used to be know as Cleansing Express….
A trip to Watsons a month ago brought me to a new product from The Nature Lab, made in Korea.

SAM_0401 (600x800)
There are a total of 3 types and I bought the whitening one.
Fairness is super important to me, 一白遮三丑….. 

 SAM_0402 (600x800)
The plus points of the product 🙂

SAM_0406 (800x600)

The descripition sounds amazing though…
SAM_0404 (800x600)Ingredients if you are interested.
How this product fare?

Texture: Upon pumping, this serum is more gelish like, pearlish white color. I usually use 3 pumps for my full face. Upon massaging, this serum turns into liquid.
Scent: There isn't any scent to it.
Price: $14.90 for 200ml
Verdict: When I first started using this, it actually broke my forehead out a little but I continue using and the breakout stops. I like that fact that the cleansing is easy as one step is all i need but the removing power is not strong enough to remove my waterproof mascara completely. I would always have to follow up with my eye makeup remover from Bifesta/Biore. Upon washing off, skin is soft and no squeaking dry feeling. I tried the first 3 nights without doing a double wash but I felt that skin is not clean enough. (maybe that's why it broke me out?) I went back to my double cleanse routine after i saw the little bumps and skin is back to normal. After about 3 weeks of usage, i do notice that skin seems to be fairer / brighter but ain't sure if it's just the lighting effects, mental thinking or the product is really working. Comparing this with Bifesta, i prefer the latter as it did a better job. Not going to repurchase this after i am done with it.

ZA Mascara

Anyone that knows me know that I am a super mascara fan… Dejavu thick lashes is still my No1 favourite but I am recently hooked to ZA mascara….

Before I start… Apologies for being missing for sooooooooooo long!!!!!

I’ve been using the ZA Impact Lash series after reading XiaXue’s entry and am hooked! I completed their volume mascara and u must say that it gives me think lashes with just one layer.

The base is good for lengthening them and it’s actually protects them! A love!!!!

This is the effect after a layer of the base and a layer of mascara. Apologies for the blur photo but I am forever blogging via my iPhone so please bear with it.

Went Watsons just now and they are having a great promotion!!!!! One mascara and one base for $19.90!!!!!! Super good buy!!!!

I didn’t get the volume one this time as I wanted to try the Wide Eyes… My colleague has been using it and she is raving on how it open up her eyes more which I also notice….

So!!! Are u going to get it??

Cya!!
