[Sponsored Review] Mentholatum Mogitate Kajitsu Lip Balm


Hey Y'all!

It's a lippie review again! Once again sponsored by The Sample Store~

Are you girls/guys like me who works in an air-conditioned office for 8 hours straight? If you are, then i bet probably 90% of all of you have the same problem as me, yes, chapped lips. T^T

I usually use my tub of Vaseline when I'm in the office, but if you all have used Vaseline before, you should know how awful the smell is, though it does the job.

But what if, there is something else that does the job + smells great, wouldn't it be better?
So introducing you Mogitate Kajitsu Lipbalm from Mentholatum!

Mentholatum has been around for quite a long long time and it has been ranked the #1 Best Selling Lip Balm brand in Japan~


I was given the Mogitate Strawberry flavour out of the 5 flavours that are available! Strawberries!!! <3

Mogitate Kajitsu simply means Fresh Fruits in Japanese. This lip balm contains fresh fruit juice that has essential minerals and vitamins that are beneficial to our body. Honey is also added in this small little miracle that helps heal and renew our lips~ 
Say goodbye to chapped lips and hello to oh-so-kissable lips *Chuuuu*



I've been bringing this everywhere I go since my Vaseline comes in a tub and it's such a hassle to bring it out.
So everyday I have kissable lips *shuffles*


Look at how moisturized my lips are! This is a lip that has been neglected for 2 weeks due to having no free time other then working -___-


As I was saying, this range of lip balms comes in 5 flavours~
- Lemon & Lime
- Strawberry
- Orange & Mango
- Grape & Berry
-White Peach

I would definitely wanna try the White Peach one when I get the chance to buy my monthly supplies of skincare at Watsons~ Hehe~

What's better then having a great lip balm for a cheap price?
Mogitate Kajitsu Lip Balms are sold at Watsons for only $5.90!! 

Go grab yours now~!

[Sponsored Review] LEADERS Insolution Masks, Part 1


Hey Y'all!

I'm finally back with a post~ Sorry for the lack of updates! >.<

Today's post is gonna be a review on LEADERS Insolution Masks sponsored by Cossy.com.sg!

This is gonna be a 2 part review, the 1st one which is the one you're reading right now and another one in 4 weeks' time to let you all know how the result is after using it for a month~

The people at Cossy.com.sg were really friendly! They discussed with me in detail what kind of skin type I belong to and suggested the best mask for me to use.


What is Cossy?
Cossy prides itself in being the 1st Singapore website to feature Beauty and Health products Deals! They believe strongly in their 3 values:
- 100% Genuine Quality Guarantee
- 30days Free return,
- Fast and safe shipping

For more information please visit here: http://www.cossy.com.sg/about/us.php


So what is LEADERS Insolution Masks?


About LEADERS InSolution Masks

                 LEADERS Cosmetic Group has owned and operated over 10 professional Skin Clinics and Aesthetics across Daegu City, Seoul, Korea since 2001. Under its professional R&D department, the LEADERS Group’s dermatologist team researched and developed its professional skin care and hair care ranges.The dermatologists and skin specialists created a cosmedical brand called LEADERS Insolution. It was created by the graduates of Seoul National University to use the principles of treatments used in dermatology clinics for skin troubles most common to women. InSolution means it solves inner skin troubles with an active ingredient that is proven to help target problems of dry, pigmented, irritated, tired, lost of elasticity, freckles, troubled skin according to the mask you choose to apply. 
                 LEADERS InSolution Mask is the upgraded version of Leaders Clinic Clinie Mask with the newest technology and Natural ingredients. It adopts 4-key concept which are Paraben (preservative) FREE, Relief Skin Irritation (made of chamomile extract), Natural Preservative System (made of Azaleaextract) and Natural thin & silky cellulose sheet mask. It’s the first of its kind & undoubtedly become the hottest clinical brand in Korea, LEADERS Insolution is a prestigious skincare line with estimated sales of more than 500, 000 masks monthly.



Their service was really fast and packaging of the masks were really great! They came in this Postpac box which protected the masks in them really well unlike others which comes in flimsy envelopes.
They arrived in probably about 2 days cos I only agreed to the sponsor review on a Friday.


2 boxes were given, the one on the left were all the masks in their range, and the one on the right was the full box of masks that the people at Cossy.com.sg suggested I used for the 4 weeks.


Look at how cute the packaging is?! 

Here are some facts about the Insolution masks!

- Product development by skin specialists
- Applied plentiful clinical data of Leaders Clinic
- All products are dermatology tested
- Introduction of the newest Technology
- Adopted the concept of Skin A/S

Solution for inner skin troubles (In+Solution)

This upgrade from the previous range of Cline Masks are:

They have so many kinds of masks one post would take toooo long to explain them all, so here's a summary picture and links for you to refer to for a better understanding!

Click image for for clearer picture
For an even more detailed understanding for each individual mask, Click HERE

And so~~~~ I used my very 1st mask! The Aquaringer!! 


Click for clearer picture
I have a very obvious combination skin which irritates me alot because I can't just use a mask that is specifically for my T-zone if not my cheeks will be flaky, but then again I can't use a moisturizing one cos my T-zone will turn into an oilfield~ >.<

So the staff at Cossy suggested I use Aquaringer which is suitable for all types which will hydrate my skin but not make my T-zone oily. YAYY!


Look at how much goodness is in there?! 


More goodness for me to apply all over my neck and body~


Here's after unfolding the mask and it smells sooooo good~ It's so thin you can see the shape of my mouth XD


And even my spots and freckles :(

I was told to do this mask about 2 times a week for a month since the rate of our skin turnover is every 4 weeks. I place my masks in the refrigerator before I use them cos it feels refreshing to have cold mask on my face~ Hehe~ Plus it helps reduce puffiness~

I forgot to take a before and after picture of myself, but overall here are my opinions on what I feel about this mask:

Pros:
- Hydrates the skin really well
- Smells awesome
- The mask adheres well to my face, covering every portion (I have quite a big face~ >.<)
- Face feels refreshed after the mask
- Probably the thinnest masks I've seen so far
- So much goodness in one pack that I can use the remaining essence to apply all over my body!

Cons:
- Face feels a tad sticky but it will be gone by the next morning

Taiwan in 2 more days!


Hey Y'all!!

Just a quick and short post~

I'm heading to Taiwan again on Wednesday!! So excited to go on a shopping frenzy already~
This time I know exactly what I need to buy (e.g. my denim shorts I bought previously that has been abused ever since XD) 

I'll only be staying for about 4 days which is quite a short trip as compared to the previous time but that 4 days is definitely enough for me to take a rest from my job.

I still have tons of backdated stuff and reviews that I have yet to even touch on. >.< I'll have to get my booty down to it once I get back from my trip or else they are gonna expire.

If you guys want to know what is gonna come back with me from my trip, stay tuned to my blog!!

Abrupt ending.

Ciaos~

[Sponsored Review] Hada Labo X Olive Oil


Hey Y'all!!

Back with another Hada Labo review! You all know how much I love Hada Labo~
This time's gonna be my makeup's greatest enemy, MAKEUP REMOVER!! >.< Before I was given this, I was depending on my Biore wipes, korean brand eye & lips makeup remover & then my cleanser to thoroughly cleanse my face when I have full makeup on. Not that these aren't doing the job, but sometimes I have to use 2-3 sheets of wipes and then cleansing my face which takes a load of time. If you aren't familiar with Hada Labo, here's a quick introduction about them~


Hada Labo skincare philosophy:

"PERFECT X SIMPLE"
For ultimate perfection and ultimate simplicity

Inspired by traditional Japanese beauty wisdom, Hado Labo adopts a "no more no less" philosophy in creating its products. Unnecessary additive, colorant, fragrance and mineral oil that will burden the skin are ommited. Only essential ingredients that are beneficial to the skin are retained to ensure maximum effectiveness. - Only the best for your skin and nothing else



This cleansing oil comes in 2 different kinds, the water-based one to remove light makeup and the oil-based one which contains high purity olive oil that is gentle to the skin but is able to remove heavy makeup. It is said to be able to remove even the toughest water-proof mascara and eyeliner. Great for people like me who piles up tons of eye makeup XD

Why High Purity Olive Oil then? Why not just use the normal Olive oil you'll ask? Well High Purity Olive Oil means the oil used has been cold pressed and contains no chemicals in them.
Olive oil has been used as a beauty product eons ago! By the famous Cleopatra~
Olive oil is great because:
  • Moisturizes dry skin
  • Contains Vitamin E which is an antioxidant
  • Relieves inflammation thus gentle to the skin and suitable for sensitive skin

The cleansing oil is near to being scentless and colorless when pumped.



Here's an eye I drew on the back of my hand with Black Eyeshadow, Khol Liner, Liquid & Powder Foundation as the base. I literally just slapped on as much makeup as I can. XD Just to show you guys how well Hada Labo's cleansing oil cleanses~


Here, I pumped out a drop of cleansing oil on cotton bud and wiped it down, used the other dry, clean side of the cotton bud to clean after and this is what I get! A clean straight line! And you can even see the difference of the part with foundation which is more yellowish in color and my own skin~


I then pumped just about 2-3 more drops of cleansing oil and spread it all over rubbing it around for about 30 seconds. I get this grey ugly blotch~ >.< So you can imagine me wiping it all over my face, my eyes would end up at my cheek and my mouth would probably end up on another side of my face. XD



I used a dry piece of cotton pad to wipe it off just to show you guys how much can be wiped off. But the actual way to using this is to massage the cleansing oil on dry face till all the makeup gets removed, wet your face a lil to emulsify the oil then lastly rinsing off with water.


I did exactly what I was told in the instructions to another set of eyes I drew XD And a clean hand resulted! Surprisingly after using this on my face, it doesn't feel greasy at all! You just to got to follow the instructions~



So you guys wanna see how it works on my face?

JA JANG!!! HHAHAHA!
Hhahaha! That was just to amuse you guys~ But it is really that good! I used less then half a pump to remove half of my face's makeup. And I had quite heavy makeup that day~

Rating: 4 / 5


Hada Labo's Hydrating Cleansing Oil (Oil-Base) & (Water-Base) are priced at SGD$20.90 & SGD$17.90 respectively and are now available Watsons, Guardian, NTUC Fairprice and other major departmental stores!

Photoshoot #2 with Hana - Apparel Store SE7EN


Hey Y'all!

Guess where am I blogging from? My office!! HAHA!

Decided to skip lunch today since my lunch kahki couldn't make it for lunch today. :( So I'd rather not have lunch XD

So just a short post with mostly pictures today~ My 2nd photoshoot with Hana for apparel store SE7EN located at Chevron House just opposite Watsons. I love love love their clothes so much which is why I agreed to this shoot too. The cuttings and quality of their clothes are so amazing I don't know what else to say. I'm not paid to advertise for them in any way btw~

I have 2 outfits from their shop and one of them is the Black Jacket with leopard prints on the inside. It's so versatile, I'm able to match them with my office wear and also my casual wear like shorts in the photo later on. I also have another one-piece in beige which I wore to the Harajuku Street Style Event at Tangs (this reminds me, I haven't done the post for that!! >.<) What I really love about the clothes there are not only the cutting and quality but also the details. I like simple apparel but I can't resist apparels that has such attractive details to them!

I was kinda tired when I went for this shoot cos it was right after the Mucota event. I didn't even have time to do my hair cos we had to finish shooting before the sun goes down. I was changing in and out so fast I couldn't catch a breath >.< And because we were at Raffles place, the security of Chevron House didn't allow us to shoot at the building itself, I had to shuffle between the shop and the place near the centre of Raffles Place which was filled with people. Boo Hoo~~ T^T

So I'll cut the story short and get the photos rolling~

Champagne Colored Toga
Great for wedding dinners and work.
The drape of the dress adds on to the details and
ehances the curves of your body.


Aristocrat Inspired Outfit
This comes in a set with the shorts and the high collared top.
The pants are really comfy to wear~
You can also pair the top with a pair of jeans just to add a
a touch to your casual wear with the details from the top.

"The last outfit for that day cos the sun was setting :("


Bright Orange One-Piece
This dress can definitely make a statement!
It's so rich in color and the pockets and buttons
makes it more outstanding. The buttons
reminds me of military jackets which is still quite
a trend now~

Black One-Piece with Chains
One of my favourites~ I just am a sucker for black apparels >.<
This is also great for wedding dinners and office wear.
If you need a LBD, this one does the job with a touch
of details on the round neckline making it less boring.


White One-Piece with Zip
Loving the slightly square neckline!
 *Cos I'm in love with my collarbone XD*


Black Military X Rock Jacket
+
Black Pants-Skirt
Jacket is great for pairings with shorts, skirts or jeans.

White Bow Top
Really cute top with lace details at the back.
A lil too cute for my liking but if you have a liking for
cuter clothings, this top IS cute. XD

Orange X Black One-Piece
Again, this piece has a cutting to die for.
It really shows off the curves of the body but not
body hugging so it's not uncomfortable to wear at all!

Black Flair Jacket with Leopard Prints and Waist Belt
+
White Dragon Scaled Shorts
I'm so in love with the jacket! I pair it with my
office wear, jeans and shorts~
The leopard prints just makes the whole jacket stand
out from all the black it has.
The Dragon Scaled shorts are quite cute and it comes in black as well.
The clothes I wore in these photos are probably all gone cos SE7EN only brings in limited pieces of stock per design and some gets sold out on the same day the stocks come in. >.<

So check their apparels out to see and feel for yourself their quality of clothes! And grab them fast~! The moment you hesitate, it might be gone the next minute and no same pieces will be restocked again~~
