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)!

However, the Cloudy Deep Pore Cleansing Awakening Mask is another story!!! I will share that with you again in another post with more pictures!! That one is much better..!

 

The Vamp Stamp – Vavavoom Wing Stamp

The perfect wing EVERY TIME! Bygone those bad eyeliner day!

If you’re like me, shaky hands/unbalance wing or just don’t know how to draw a wing eyeline, YOU NEED TO READ THIS POST!

As I was doing my online retail therapy, I chanced upon this wing stamp! This is not new to me, saw it online some time back but it was only available in US then. However, it seems like the perfect wing has flew to our sunny island!

Bought my wing stamp on Qoo10 (will share the link at the end of this post) and rec’d it within 3 days!! From the package, you know it’s not the authentic wing stamp BUT I don’t care as long as it serve its purpose! (Yes, in her page, it’s mentioned that the product is an inspired  product)

Tried it immediately that evening (NO, I have no evening dates nor am I going anywhere, I just want to try it before I go shower – didn’t even have my lip color on)!!

New beauty tools like this, I thought I will need a lil more time to master the skill.. who knows, it turns out pretty user-friendly!

  

Aim, stamp and done! So easy! The only tricky part is that you’ll need to angle your wing proportionately! Not too high, not too flat! Other than that, it’s really an easy tool!!

Chances of me using this again is pretty high! For wedding dinner, for party, for dates…

No more shaky hand as excuse!

  

In case you wanna know, this stamp I bought is “KITTEN” wing (start small so i won’t get a shock of my life).. Yes, the stamp comes in 3 sizes!

Windflower Florist 

Happy Father’s Day guys! Saw this short quote on FB and decided to make it my opening for today!

What I’d give, if i could say “Hello Dad” in the same old way.

To hear his voice and see his smile, to sit with him and chat for a while.

So if your father is still here, cherish him with care, for you’ll never know the heartache until you see his empty chair.

Happy Fathers Day Dad! .. and back to today’s topic!!

Today I’m gonna share with you how much of a love-hate feeling i have for Windflowers Florist!!

With social media, I tell you, it’s so easy to compare and look an almost perfect bouquet for your special someone! Say goodbye (not forever) to old-school flower arrangement! There are now so many IG-worthy florist out there that worth your time to check out their collection!

However, one thing that will make me constantly goes back to them, are not just about the collection. It’s the customer service and of course price!

Chance upon Windflower on Instagram while I was checking out some other stuff and really love the bouquets I saw! Pastel.. Rustic.. Romantic.. Totally something that I will have a second look..

My first bouquet from Windflower was “Daisy-Me-Rolling in Pink“! It was a lil surprise for someone birthday!

Daisy-Me-Rolling in Pink keeping it sweet and pretty.

Rough Dimensions: 45cm (H) x 26cm (W)

Price: $35.00

It’s simple and classic with a decent size ! Most importantly, pocket friendly!!

Actual bouquet when received, looks totally fresh too! That makes me a happy customer already!

When we needed bouquet for office celebration, Windflower came into my mind again! With a higher budget this time, we were able to buy a bigger bouquet – we needed 2!

Wanted to have something similar but still able to tell the difference (1 for a lady & the other for a gentleman) we zoomed down to below:

HARU(春), KIETSU: Hydrangeas are one of our most requested bouquets. Native to the Land of the Rising Sun, these Japanese Shrubs are elegant in their own right. This is Haru, a sweet blend of pink hydrangea and peach baby roses, rustically wrapped in kraft paper to put a smile on your special someone.

Rough Dimensions: 50cm (H) x 30cm (W)

Price: $75.00; SALE $69.90

 

NATSU(夏)KIETSU: Hydrangeas are one of our most requested bouquets. Native to the Land of the Rising Sun, these Japanese Shrubs are elegant in their own right. This is Natsu, a refreshing blend of blue hydrangea with shocking pink baby roses, rustically wrapped in kraft paper to put a smile on your special someone.

Rough Dimensions: 50cm (H) x 30cm (W)

Price: $75.00; SALE $69.90

Before getting this, there were actually a few communication to and fro to decide what I wanted (I’ll skip the details..). All I can say is, Windflower is really professional. They provided advise/opinion and was able to let me do minor customization to the bouquet – even though in the end we didn’t do what I initially wanted. Can’t sense any frustration from our communication! (I would probably rolled a thousand eyes behind the mobile if my customers were like me!)

Actual bouquet that we received, totally BEAUTIFUL and SMELLS so niceeee! I seriously don’t know the names of these flowers but it doesn’t matters because LOVE needs no reason! The flower arrangement were beautifully done – it feels as if every flowers & leaves were just as important in this bouquet!

Together with the above 2 bouquets, I added another bouquet few days before to be delivered together on the same day – I guess 2-3 days before is not really that last min uh..?

 

ENAMOUR: A rustic arrangement of White Rose sprays and White Roses, be enamoured with the quiet beauty this bouquet exudes.

Rough Dimensions: 45cm (H) x 28cm (W)

Price: $55.00

Yeap, this was the additional flowers we bought. Slightly smaller but look very pure/demure.. Actual bouquet was a lil disappointing becuase of some dry petals and browning edges but didn’t affect me much as it still look beautiful overall..!

With such “massive” order in a day, I’m glad that Windflower didn’t screw up my orders! All notes and instructions were well taken care off!! *thumbs up*

With such pleasant experience with them already, how not to order another bouquet!!!

But before the next order, how about a cam-whore moment first!! Who doesn’t love flowers… >_< a beautiful bouquet of flowers somemore!!

Since my cousin’s birthday is around the corner, I decided to plan another surprise for her (I’ll share her GRAND Surprise in another post another day)!

Cotton Candy: Here’s our ever so popular Cotton Fluff bouquet wrapped in the special Pink French Paper! Don’t you think it’s just so lovely?!

Rough Dimensions: 38cm (H) x 20cm (W)

Price: $45.00

Yeap! Here’s her bouquet cotton flowers!! Real bouquet looks pretty true! Ordered something different this time to celebrate her BIG-3!! Again no disappointment at all!! prompt delivery service no hiccups!

I would highly recommend Windflower florist!! Why buy traditional bouquet when you can get IG worthy ones!!

BONUS!! Bought another bouquet earlier this week and OMG it’s totally….

ABC!!! AWESOME! BEAUTIFUL!! CAPTIVATING!!! My friend told me looks like a bridal bouquet!! Hahahaha!! So glad it made her day!!

This is their weekly special – My Little Peony!!

My Little Peony: Peonies are in season! Wrapped in our signature sweet pink wrap, don’t miss out on gifting a special one this sweet-scented bloom!

Rough Dimensions: 40cm(H) x 26cm(W) *Only available until 20th June

Price: S$70.00

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

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!

capture

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..

iHerb App – My E.L.F. supply

Don’t ask me why I’m going budget for most of my makeup recently!! I wanna blame it on wedding savings but the more convincing reason could by Youtube! There are a few youtubers shared how amazing drugstore brand makeup can be hence I decided to give them a try!

I used to buy E.L.F. product from Smoochiezz but it looks like the price isn’t as cheap anymore. Then I checked out Carousell! Wow – competitive!
