MKUP Cloudy Deep Pore Cleansing Awakening Mask

Yesh! Finally made time to share this cloudy mask review with you!

WHAT IS CLOUDY DEEP PORE CLEANSING AWAKENING MASK? 

Luxurious Skin Essence Treatment that reawakens tired dull skin back to life, purging out impurities deep in the pores while injecting precious Arbutin, Vitamin C & Whitening Essence that stops formation of pigmentation and brightens skin to a new tone. Vitamin B5, E, Carbonated Water and Pore minimizing Essence to create ultimate skin recovery regime leaving a bright pore less and water charged skin with each treatment.

So here’s me with my mask!

 

Pardon the poor quality photo! I was using my iPhone front camera and quality got compromised due to insufficient lighting..

The super dense foam starts to oxidize as soon as i applied on my face.. I look so ugly max with the mask! It’s difficult to apply them smoothly because it’s so dense it doesn’t move swiftly when you push it..

 

Oxidization process is kinda slow (or maybe i applied too much).. It has been more than 20 mins but some part of my face are still “cloudy”.. But nevermind! I went ahead to wash my face and tried to remove my blackheads!

I must say, this works so much better than the Deep Pore Cleanser! Blackheads were easily removed with Cloudy Mask and skin does looks brighter (not whiter!)

So if you’re contemplating to get Deep Pore Cleanser or Cloudy Awakening Mask, I would recommend you to get this instead!

MKUP Deep Pore Cleanser

FB advertisement are scary! Just a short 2 min video made me spend $64.80!

Not bad right??? Like so easy can!!

*finger clicking* ADDED TO CART!! LOL!!

Then another FB advertisement

Seriously.. they’re not like made expensive hence thought just give both a try…..

Today, i’ll just be sharing the review on Calendula Extract Deep Pore Cleansing Mousse!

Easy to use is definitely the first thing that comes into my mind! brush and cleanser all in one bottle. No need to lather any foam and just a push u’re ready to scrub scrub scrub!

After trying, I wouldn’t say this is the best pore cleanser I had tried. It didn’t remove as much pores as what the video shows.. Video’s a lil too extreme i think.. sigh, 广告都是骗人的..

Well at least i tried! If you would like to give it a try too, check out from Qoo10 (click image to be redirected)!

Vitamins Infused Foundation!

A healthy mix for a healthier you!!

Just looking at their marketing material, I’m convinced the product is full of vitamin!

Capture

What am i waiting for?? UNBOXING TIME!!! Yay!!!

Introducing BOURJOIS HEALTHY MIX FOUNDATION!

Pamper yourself with Bourjois NEW Healthy Mix Anti-Fatigue Foundation that provides multiple skincare benefits, on top of flawless beauty. The new formula contains a vitamin-infused complex that erases all signs of fatigue for a fresh and healthy-looking complexion.

On top of these vitamins, this foundation is said to be long lasting and medium coverage (Up to 16 hours coverage)! It’s also semi-matte and ultra light weight which will gives you a delightful bare skin sensation! All day hydration for maximum comfort throughout the day! Last but not least, 70% more radiance giving you a natural healthy looking glow!

How true? Read on for more details!!

Pump bottles are always the best, or at least that how I feel. Clean and hygienic.. Most importantly, less messy!

  

Cant see much difference on my hand? Fret not, I did a quick swatch personally and I like the look!

So here’s me with my bare face, more like bear face.. LOL!

 

The shade I’m using is N54 Beige (somewhere light to medium shade)! The texture of this foundation is pretty smooth and it’s easy to blend out, all thanks to its light weight factor!

As for coverage, it did cover my freckles pretty well making them less obvious and I’m happy with it! I guess the half face comparison can speak louder than my words.

Now on my whole face? Ta-daaa! Matte but not flat! Totally loving the combination of this foundation!! Semi-matte and giving you a lil glow! Able to cover my freckles yet still remain light weight and doesn’t feels cakey!! Aiseh~ Best of all, benefit that can’t be seen, the vitamins infused in this foundation!

Now complete our flawless face with BOURJOIS HEALTHY MIX CONCEALER!

Time to say bye-bye to dark circles and pufy eyes! Brighten and energize in a single step by using this product!

It’s spherical powders will blur and smooth your skin for a silky finish! It contain light reflecting pigments that can gives you immediate radiance and undetectable finish!

How true? Read on again!!

This concealer comes in a small tube with cushion tip. Again, it’s a mess-free packaging and totally compact to bring around for touch-up etc.. ❤

 

I got myself a shade 51 (light), a tone lighter than my own complexion. This way, it can act as a highlighter as well! How smart! Okay, anyway, I guess you won’t be able to see much from the hand swatch.. Fret not (again!!), because I swatch it on my face too!

 

Healthy Mix collection seems really worthy! Concealer light weight too and easy to blend! The cushion tip can hold quite a decent amount of concealer hence you do not need to dap and dap again to get enough coverage.

 

I don’t know about you but I think it’s doing a decent job here. at least it covers my eye ring and yet doesn’t give me 2 white patch eye.. You know..

(image grabbed from google)

Now to show you with all foundation and concealer on…

   

Will I buy this again? Why not? Vitamin infused foundation leh, go where find? Haven’t I mentioned? I wear this foundation/concealer to work from morning to evening and my skin doesn’t feel dry nor cakey after a whole day!! I can’t tell if it’s really 24-hr hydrating but at least for 10-hr is no issue!

Now’s your turn to give your skin a healthy flawless look!

WHERE TO BUY: Major Watsons & departmental stores

Price: Foundation @ S$29.90 for 30ml (comes in 6 shades); Concealer @ S$17.50 for 7.8ml (comes in 3 shades)

BRAND’S® InnerShine® RubyCollagen Essence Drink

HARD TRUTH ABOUT HEART HEALTH

A recent survey has found that Singapore workers are spending more hours at work relative to their regional counterpart, resulting in workplace stress.* Together with the sedentary lifestyle from sitting at the desk the entire day, Singapore workers are facing increased risks of high blood pressure and heart diseases.

*S’pore workplace stress on the rise survey, the Business Times, 27 Aug 2016

Now what has that gotta do with today’s post? Read on..

Introducing Unique RubySignature™ Formula!

Unlike normal collagen, RubySignature™ formula is created with a unique and precious blend of ingredients derived from natural sources. It contains micro-collagen and one of mother nature’s most powerful antioxidants, astaxanthin (micro-algae extract). Scientifically proven, its anti-oxidant power is 6000 times more powerful than Vitamin C, 800 times more powerful than CoQ10 and 500 times more powerful than Vitamin E.

Collagen is necessary to support the skin’s structural foundation to improve firmness and elasticity for youthful and supple skin. Astaxanthin serves as the perfect complement by acting as a natural shield against the collagen-depleting procedure. In containing both micro-collagen and astaxanthin, RubySignature™ formula defies the ageing process by performing a vital triple-action of supplying collagen, protecting against collagen degradation and delivering collagen efectively to skin cells..

Infused with natural pomegranate juice, BRAND’S® InnerShine® RubyCollagen makes for a truly delicious treat and an indispensable beauty oral supplement that addresses the heightened needs of aging skin. Designed to easily complement your existing topical skin care routine to form a comprehensive beauty regimen, the BRAND’S® InnerShine® RubyCollagen Essence range is available in both drink and strip formats. Daily consumption will help to ensure that your body is adequately supplied with the essential nutrients for optimal skin support and protection. For optimum efficacy, it is recommended that BRAND’S® InnerShine® RubyCollagen be consumed twice daily to experience the skin age-reversing diference in 6 weeks*.

*Results may vary according to individuals

I had drank this for about a week now. I can’t say it changed me totally but I can see the radiance on my skin every morning when I look into the mirror! (Can’t be sure if that the glow of entering married life or.. LOL) Anyway, I do like this product as it’s sweet and easy to bring around. I’ve already packed it and was suppose to bring to Bali for my honeymoon trip but it slipped my mind..! Tsk!

(Hmm, got drifted a bit….)

Nonetheless, not to late to start when I returned because there were breakouts on my face during my trip (caused by the wedding’s heavy makeup I believe)!! After consuming 2-3 bottles I started to see slight result – my breakouts are healing, skin getting better too.. Who doesn’t love to see a beautiful self? At least I do! Although this drink sweet (might be a lil too sweet if u don’t really like soft drink) but it can be tastier if it’s sparkling!
Seriously, I  can’t help to think that at my age, I really need the aid of collagen drink to help me maintain YOUTH!!! hahaha! If I didn’t recall wrongly, an average person will need 5000mg  of collagen per day and consistancy is the key..! Just drinking 1-2 bottles a day, you’ll get smoother skin, firmer skin, less wrinkle formation.. WHY NOT???

BeautyKeeper

A heaven for taiwan products lover! They bring innovative, novel & award winning Taiwanese beauty products closer to you!

Thanks to Samplestore, I get to try a few items from BeautyKeeper!!

The first thing that caught my attention is SLIMWAY (Organic) Essential Oil!

img_5048

Ever thought how to get rid of those wrinkled, saggy skin after weight lost?

This lil oil here is suppose to help you keep your skin firm, eliminate orange peel skin & regain skin elasticity as you slim down!! SLIM DOWN BEAUTIFULLY!

img_5049

It’s not only an essential oil, it helps you curb your appetite too!

I’m not too sure able the curb appetite part, but i enjoy the fragrance of the oil, it helps me sleep better at night!

HOW TO USE: Apply approximately 10 drops once in the morning, noon & night – massage! For extra strength, in the first 30 mins of use, apply 1 drop on the stomach & take deep breath for 1 min before you go to bed!

After you’ve taken care of your body, let’s care for our beautiful face!

Here we have MDMMD Wakeup Skin and Freeze Age Essence! By that name, I believe it’s not hard to tell it’s an anti aging product!

The products reminds me another brand where to essence is thick and can gives your those doink-doink feeling! I gave this to my mom to try, hence will let you know the review once i hear from her!!

Next up, the not very attractive packaging mask but I thought it was pretty good!

SEVYNAL – Brightening Firmimg Repair Mask is made with VICERAL which can be composed when buried in soil.

If you ask women,”What’s your dream?.” I believe 80% would say they want to stay forever young! If that’s you’re goal, then this is the right product that you’re looking for!

 

The mask is very fitting and it leaves a very smooth after effect when you’re done!

Last but not least! All Belle Falsie!

Looks decent.. but looking at the manufacturing date (4.5 years ago), I’m not sure if i will wear it out though.

Overall, I think I still think BeautyKeeper is a decent platform where you can get Taiwan Beauty Products!! Head over to give it a try..

Singapore 1st Orchid Stem Cell Beauty Drink

Orchid symbolizes luxury, love, strength and beauty. It represents refinement and perfection. With more than 25,000 species of orchids and over 100,000 hybrids growing throughout the world, these exotic flowers have been a part of many cultures since a long time back.

Orchids were used to promote good health and cure diseases by the ancient Chinese, ancient Aztecs brewed a strength potion from its flowers to obtain power over their enemies, Europeans used it in Love potions and the Geeks used it for fertility.

Today, Orchid extracts (the flower as a whole) are use in multiple varieties of products including hair care, body care, and skincare products. However researchers have found a breakthrough in an untapped part of Orchids; its stem cells.

Do you know? Fundamental to having good skin is maintaining healthy skin cells. To fully benefit from any oral beauty supplements or skincare, it is important to have healthy skin cells to fully absorb and locks in the skin beneficial nutrients. Research discovered Orchid Stem Cell is a powerful antioxidant and possesses strong anti-inflammatory properties, particularly young orchid stem cells protect the skin from environmental damages while hydrating and renewing our skin cells thus making it an excellent youth revitaliser which works on almost all skin types.

UV Spray Comparison

Recently I saw lotsa advertisement on sunblock spray! Sunblock spray is nothing new actually.. Few years back, I tried Enavose sunblock spray! It’s really convenient and hassle-free! That’s why here we are – a post for sun block spray!!

Today we’re comparing Cyber Colors and L’Oreal!

Bought Cyber Colors from JB’s SaSa! It cost about RM65 each but because there’s a 50% off promotion if purchase 2! So it’s as good as 1 for 1!

SPF 50 / PA+++, totally full defense!!

 

NG-Scene: Didn’t shake well enough and ended up with super thick sunblock on my hand! EEW~ Conclusion, SHAKE WELL!!

 

After shaking well, this spray works fine and smells good too! The fine particles are indeed grease-free as claim and totally not sticky at all!! *thumbs-up*

I have no idea how well it block away the UV but at least I am more motivated to apply sunblock on my body now since it’s so easy and convenient!

The only thing about this is.. you can’t spray directly onto face, You’ll have to do it the traditional way, spray onto you hand, rub it and then apply on face. Hmm.. so convenient for body but not the face..

img_8059

Now, say WOW! I thought Cyber Colors sun protection was good enough! However, this is even better!! SPF 50 / PA++++!!! Four PLUS!! Even more protection!!

It’s the 1st ultra-light UV mist for face in a refreshing flash dry watery texture with 12H long-lasting UV Protection!!

OK, after above lesson, I shake this sun block very well!! LOL~

 

As compared, L’Oreal is slightly oilier but smell nicer! In fact, the oily feeling doesn’t last very long and the good thing about this is that it can be spray directly onto our face – even over your makeup!! Speaking of convenience~ ^_^

Overall, both are as good! It really depends on what you’re looking for..

If you prefer a less oilier spray, Cyber color is for you! Smells good, not sticky, not oily..

However, if you wish to have the convenience of having one bottle and able to spray from head to toe, L’Oreal is good! One compact spray-can that blocks all the UV! Save that pretty face!!!

Nivea Extra Bright Make Up Clear (Micellar Water)

How long has it been since I last blogged about ANY beauty products? LOOONG time it is!

Well, today I’m back with a GOOD DEAL!!

Nivea’s Make Up Clear! If I’m not wrong, this should be their latest skincare range! However it’s not the “latest” that attract me!! It’s 13rushes cleansing brush that lure me into buying it!!!

Seriously, it doesn’t matter if you’re a light or heavy make-up person! As long as u do make-up (even if you don’t), I think this is a great kit to start your cleansing regime! For just S$18.90, Nivea has got you covered with Micellar Water + 3 in 1 Mud Cleanser !!

Best of all, every cleansing duo set comes with a FREE 13rushes Cleansing Brush (worth S$21)!! You think I’m kidding??

13rushes

See! A similar brush is retailing at US$15.22 (approximately S$21.01) on 13rushes website!! Probably the best cleansing deal in town!!!

 

Why buy when you can get it for free!!!?? Soft brush, very densely packed fine bristle! Doesn’t feel prickly at all!! Just touching it feel so shiok!! Totally worth it!!

Besides the brush, the next thing that got me into buying this set is the micellar water makeup remover!

I’m sure girls out there are totally good friends with micellar water!! It’s quick! It’s clean! It’s great for sensitive skin! &I’m sure you know which are the few brands that already have micellar water under their umbrella.. ie: Bioderma (a more atas brand as compared) and Biore (probably launched less than a year ago?)..

So is this comparable? Let’s ask our model~

img_8027

Here’s Miss Sexy.. She’s doll up using Rachel K’s BB cream and pressed powder, Canmake Blush, Revlon blue eye shadow, Marc Jacob waterproof liquid liner, Mac mascara & SK-II lipcolor.. I know.. She’s goddess!

So here I’ve covered half her face with cotton pad soaked with micellar water..

img_8030

Press and hold for about 3-5 seconds, and…. ta-daaaa…!!

img_8033 img_8034

I’m impressed! Quite clean with just one wipe!

img_8036 img_8035

After a few more wipes, totally good to jump into bed!!! Yes, one cotton pad for my hand’s makeup!

3 in 1 MUD Cleanser sure got me curious! Does it works like a mask or cleanser?

So now you understand? Indeed it’s both a mask and a cleanser and of course a makeup remover!

3 Effects in 1 Use:

  1. Apply as Mud Mask Absorbs make up & unclogs pores
  2. At the touch of water, massage as make up remover Removes 10 types of makeup*
  3. Cleanses as foam with whitening effect Removes impurities from deep pores for 10x fairer, water-like looking skin
  4. *Oil, talc, colorants, silicone, sun filter, dirt, fragrance, minerals, alcohol, chemicals

img_8083 

Now if you wanna grab a set too (doesn’t matter for the brush or for the great deal), just head to major retailers islandwide, while stocks last!! I got mine from Changi Airport terminal 3’s Watsons!
