JOHN FRIEDA

This advanced formula addresses the way brunette colour fades on three colour dimensions. With daily use it helps lock in rich, glossy colour and multi-dimensional tones. Formulated with crushed pearls and sweet almond oil, this moisturising formula protects and preserves brunette colour as it rehydrates and replenishes dry hair. Suitable for all shades of colour-treated brunette hair.

This shampoo lathers up very quickly! Not sure whether it has enhanced my brunette colour hair but I still enjoy shampooing my hair John Frieda as it not only smells great, my hair feels smoother too!

L’Oréal EXTRAORDINARY OIL

NylonVT_Loreal

Japan’s #1 Hair Treatment – Extraordinary Oil is the ultimate miracle hair oil treatment. 1 Miracle Drop, 6 Extraordinary Benefits- Nourish, Soften, Smoothen, Shine, Proetct, Strengthen. Hair is luxuriously nourished and richly protected, leaving it sumptuously smooth and brilliantly shiny with an ultra lightweight non-greasy finish. Hair color is protected against fading with exceptional nourishment.

Now with additional UV Filter – who says hair doesn’t need sunblock!! Without sun protection, you’re putting your hair at risk for faded color due to oxidation, lack of moisture, and overall distress! These short-term effects make strands look and feel dull and dehydrated, but the longer-term problem is premature hair aging (eg: hair lost – remember how thick your ponytail used to be??))!!

Distribute 2-3 pumps onto palm and apply:
1. Before shampoo and conditioner to restore, nourish and prep hair for washing
2. On towel dry/ dry hair (before blow drying) to protect hair
3. Throughout the day for continuous nourishment and shine

FOLLIZIN The Cleanser (50ml)  & FOLLIZIN The Moisturiser (50ml)

The 2 common surfactants found in shampoos – SLES (Sodium Laureth Sulphate ) and SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulphate) are known to be harmful to the follicle and scalp skin. L SLES dissolves the natural oils on your skin and can denature skin proteins which not only causes irritation, but also allows environmental contaminants easier access to the lower sensitive layers of the skin. Another lesser known fact is that SLES is a direct cause of dry fuzzy and split hairs. As SLES is also absorbed into the body through the skin, it can mimic the activity of the hormone OESTROGEN in our body 2thereby contributing to hormonal imbalance which is today’s major cause of Male and Female Pattern Hair Loss.

Both Cleanser and Moisturizer are gentle yet thorough cleanser formulated for all scalp and hair types. . SLES, SLS and PARABENS FREE!

The thing that’s special about  this shampoo is that they uses:

SuGENE Technology – Breakthrough plant genetics technology that has an appropriate degree of maintaining moisture balance on both the scalp and hair through hygroscopic action. It also acts as a natural preservative.

Rose Oil – a natural astringent that protects the scalp and hair from losing moisture, it is also ideal for irritated skin. Rich in trans-retinol acids which are important for the skin’s collagen production. Provides for more elasticity and natural smoothness for both the scalp and hair.

BED HEAD TIGI HARD HEAD

Be Bold and get spiked up! Dries quickly… defies gravity. You don’t have to have a Mohawk just a serious desire for your hair to stay put!

This lil hair spray here has 5 stars support factor! Super strong hold and firm, hold spiky styles and dries quickly! Suitable for short to medium hair..

Ingredient:

  • Mica – Shine, light reflects off hair
  • Octylacrylamide Acrylates/Butylaminoethyl
  • Methacrylate Copolymer – Mega hold without weight or extreme stiffness with gloss, helps to protect hair from fading & sun damage
  • Sorbitol – Gloss & moisture retention, so hair won’t dry out

I’m getting my friend to try this out!! If it’s good, I’ll let u know!!!

Now that hair is covered, let’s head over to body care!!

IMG_1545

ADIDAS CLIMACOOL ANTI-PERSPIRANT

A unique formula featuring advanced fresh capsule technology activated by movement so that the harder you go the better it works. Anti-white marks.

If you’ve been working up a sweat lately, you know that nothing feels as great as that post-workout high. But unfortunately, that glow also has a price… which is your very own custom, post-workout “fragrance”. The answer to feeling (and smelling) fresh even after a killer spin class is an anti-perspirant deodorant that works just as hard as you do – like the athlete-tested Adidas Climacool Anti-Perspirant Spray. The advanced capsules in its formula aren’t just citrus-scented, they’re also activated by friction, sweat and humidity. When you move, the capsules break, releasing a burst of freshness so that the harder you work, the better this next-level deodorant performs. Perfect for chatting up that cute guy at the water station after your workout! – See more at: http://www.cleo.com.sg/body-awards-2015/best-long-lasting-deodorant-adidas-climacool-anti-perspirant-spray-her#sthash.FICKC76N.dpuf

ASTALIFT MOISTURE FOAM – This creamy moisture foam contains anti-oxidants – Astaxanthin and Lycopene – and hydro-soluble collagen leaving your skin fresh, radiant and luminous always. Key ingredients are Astaxanthin, Lycopene, Collagen, Damask Rose, Shea Butter & Jojoba Seed Oil!

‘ASTA’ in Japanese means tomorrow and ‘LIFT’ refers to the uplift of one’s inner emotions as beauty shines through. The result is a meaningful brand promise that offers renewed skin.

Created by FUJIFILM, ASTALIFT is an award-winning brand that offers carefully-researched skincare and supplement products with proven efficacy.

Not many know that oxidation – the leading cause of freckles and skin ageing – is responsible for colour fading in photographs. FUJIFILM has applied its advanced understanding of the process of anti-oxidation technology to create ASTALIFT’s award-winning anti-ageing products.

What’s more, Collagen – an important structural protein in human skin – is also the key ingredient for photographic film. FUJIFILM, harnessing its nearly 80 years of collagen research, has effectively channeled this area of expertise to ASTALIFT’s products.

FUJIFILM has also applied its proprietary knowledge of nanotechnology – for exposing and colour developing in film – to allow high concentrations of ultra-fine skin-nourishing ingredients to be delivered effectively and deeply to targeted levels of the skin, while preserving their efficacy. FUJIFILM’s strengths in image analysing technologies – gleaned from our vast experience in the photographic and medical fields – have also been used in skin tone reproduction technology to enhance one’s looks in the cosmetics field.

Inspired by skin cell research. Powered by proprietary nano technology.

I’m sure many of you are no strangers with Hada Labo & Belif!

Both are pretty hydrating product! A supple/hydrated skin is a health skin! Hydrated skin can absorb products better hence not wasting money!!

IMG_1549

I’m very excited to show you this!!

Kosé Pure Advance Deep Clear Mask – The clay-based mask and scrub combined have a dual effect on the skin, getting rid of blackheads and unwanted dead skin cells.

IMG_1540 IMG_1537

It’s pretty easy to spread and I  absolutely LOVEEEE the srcub in this mask! It’s like forever not going to dissolve and I can just go on & on & on scrubbing..

I applied a thin layer on my face and probably less than 5 mins, it’s dry and I can feel the skin tightening! I washed of with luke warm water after that and my skin feels clean and soft! Blackhead weren’t all gone but I was able to remove quite plentiful.. 🙂

IMG_1620

If clay-based mask is not for you, don’t worry! In this edition of trove, we have sheet mask as well!!

Now, the ingredient! This mask is obtained from 100% natural cotton fibers sheets! The key ingredients are Swallow Nest, Papaver Rhoeas Seed Extract & Coptis Chinensis Root Extract!

If you don’t like dowager style, they even have Cleopatra sia!!

The Little Black Beauty Box X Tangs !!

Are you aware that The Little Black Beauty Box has changed partner?

Yup, it’s no more Robinson but Tangs! Oh well, to me, as long as it continue to bring in new/interesting/amazing samples for its subscribers, I don’t really care who’s the partner. Of course, the price must be justifiable! LOL..

So today, I proudly presents my first Tangs x LBBB ! Quite happy with my new LBBB!

20140622-131215-47535720.jpg

But before i go further, I have to apologise!! All images that you are gonna see here, the color is a bit “cool”.. It looks totally fine on my cam but somehow when I transferred them to my iPhone and upload them here.. hmm… colour runs?

Anyway, I had tried my best to adjust the color to as true as possible but.. oh well.. bear with it!

20140622-131216-47536205.jpg

Ain’t you excited to seeeee so many goodies in a lil box like this!? Looks like they have hunt for variety of samples for us.. From skin care to hair care to makeup to fragrance! Wow~ How thoughtful!

I will not be going through every single item in my box but still I will show you picture of it..

First thing that caught my attention is….  BELIF! For the first time I actually see one sample box includes a decent travel size of Belif product! Best part, this is the cleanser that I would usually get when I wanted Belif!

20140627-145148-53508746.jpg

This cleansing foam uses a foaming action to softly wash away impurities from your skin. Formulated with Soapwort, Sweet Flag and Wormwood to remove toxins, this cleansing foam produces clean skin without dryness after washing.

Soapwort, rich with vitamin C and natural foaming agents, cleanses the skin gently. It has been used instead of soap for centuries. Sweet Flag, has appealed to women for generations, is known to make hair and skin beautiful, silky and smooth. Wormwood, possesses breakout-prevention properties and excels at removing toxins.

The other 2 Belif products are sachet masks pack..

20140622-131349-47629158.jpg

The next item here I think there’s no need to further explained! It’s so popular even my mom knows about it.. Yup, It’s Laneige Water Sleeping Pack EX..

Clarins Shaping Facial Lift Total V Contouring Serum

20140627-145149-53509705.jpg

This is better than the face lifting cream from Bioessence, IMO.. This doesn’t give me a TIGHT feeling and doesn’t feel heavy for my skin.. Most importantly, you can see result!

Michael Kors Sporty Citrus

20140622-131516-47716634.jpg

Guerlain Foundation

20140622-131518-47718339.jpg

Guerlain invents the most perfect second skin: Lingerie de Peau. This intangible foundation becomes one with the skin like a second sensual covering to make it more beautiful than ever. Its secret: the Bio-Fusion micro-mesh, an unprecedented combination of smoothing and shaping stretch fibres and natural linen and silk fibres in complete affinity with the skin. The foundation glides on like a silk stocking. The “little nothing” becomes everything…

20140622-131518-47718833.jpg

Sublimely transparent, the complexion becomes as soft and radiant as silk. The curves of the face are tightened and imperfections are erased. The nine shades of the range are so skin-fusing and natural that they leave no visible colour on the face, simply a glowing, long-wearing tone that leaves the skin looking natural. Regular size Lingerie de Peau is about 30ml pump bottle and has SPF 20 – PA+. Though not the strongest sun protection but better than nothing!

20140622-131519-47719358.jpg

20140622-131519-47719815.jpg 20140622-131520-47720256.jpg

Overall, looks quite natural on my skin and doesn’t feels very thick.. Shall update here again when I tried them out on my face some day!

I’ve got an exactly the same kit from one of the sample box previously.. Haven’t got the chance to use so can’t comment much about it too.. LOL!

20140622-131522-47722403.jpg

To end this post, here’s a quick look of the LBBB voucehers! Some of it are quite worthy leh!

Vanity Trove X Cosmopolitan!

Been hearing all the hoo-ha about VanityTrove Cosmopolitan Beauty Authority & finally I can get my hands on it!!! HURRAAYYYY!!

IMG_6642

See the amount of goodies!! We have hair care, skin care, hair styling & makeup products..! Wow.. I can’t wait to show you everything!

IMG_6643

So here’s Goldwell Style Sign Full Rebel! Erm, I’m not really into this althought it promise good holding power! Why? Because it’s too sticky!! So much more heavier then whipped cream! As sticky as a glue! & it feels as if my hair is gona stick together (like tangle up).. Eeew… I prefer the curling cream iSalon recommended much much more!

IMG_6880This is the curling cream Susan recommend to me when i did my perm at iSalon! I ain’t that interested initially because I thought it works like a hair moose giving my hair a wet look throughout the day or a hair wax where the holding power is a nay.

However, to my surprise, it has amazing styling power! Why did I not use the word “holding” power? because it doesn’t HOLD your curl! You do not need to stand in front of the mirror and start grabbing/scrunching your hair! All you need to do is twirl your hair with this cream when it is almost dry then let your hair be.. You will get beautiful natural curls after that!! NO NEED MIRROR! I SOMPA (I swear)~! Best part about it is, it’s not expensive! S$19 for a bottle like this and each time all I use is just 2 pumps!

Erm…. have I drifted too far?? OKAY! Back to my trove!

IMG_6644

Here’s the next product, The Face Shop Baby Face Wash Off Mask Pore Care Pack!

bbcushion

SPF50 PA+++ is really tempting to me!! It always gives me a dewy and natural skin look. It “lightens” my freckles when I dap this bb cream on them (dap for better coverage)! On other area, I just apply per normal, swipe them all over and I’m done. Dewy, checked! Coverage checked!

IMG_6648

Sheet mask from b.liv by cellnique! I tried the Bright is Right mask and thought is good but not enough for me to come back again..

IMG_6651

Belif Oil Control Moisturizer Fresh! I’m currently using Belif products, they are great to start but after some time i realize the effect is no longer that effective. Is it because my skin got used to it? I still remember how it hydrates my skin when I first try them out! So ladies, you can consider this if you need hydrating products!

Ok, next product is a nightmare! Read on to find out more..

IMG_6652

Now you see why it caused a mess? It leaked!! EEEWWW~~ My trove smells so nice but SO OILY!! hahahahaa!!! I gotta clean and clean and clean in order to take a cleaner picture! LOL! But was touched that Vanity Trove actually offer to send me a replacement after I informed them about the leakage! I only wanted to inform them so that they can be more careful next time (2nd time i rec’d a leaked product). I didn’t thought of demanding for a replacement because it just didn’t came into my mind but they offered so i accepted. HAHAHA!! Pro-active customer service is what keeps a customer coming back. *thumbs up* Thanks for the replacement VT, I had rec’d them..

Overall, I’m still satisfied with my VanityTrove Cosmopolitan Beauty Authority Trove! If I can get Majolica Majorca Lash Expanding Edge Meister and/or Shiseido Professional The Hair Care Aqua Intensive Mask, I will be even happier!! HAHAHAHA!! Can’t get too greedy huh???

Japalang Beauty Bazaar Sales!

No woman can resist SALE!! I’m one of those who can’t!! It’s my 死穴 (lethal point).. Sale is a good time/chance u can grab something that u usually will not! Why not?? well, probably because its too ex? Or probably u’ve not used it before so not confident in that product? Or maybe ………. nevermind!! I believe pricing is the main reason! Hahaha!

JPL Sale!! Good thing is, it’s pretty near my place so going to 9@Tagore isn’t a big problem!!

The problem comes only when I’m in the building…
20130706-235527.jpg

Yes, thank you JPL for the lift label.. But …. still very scary when i stepped out of the lift although i know I’m at the right place.. Facing all white walls and I start to wonder where is the door to the “office”!?? (This is not horror movie right??)

I think it will be helpful if they had paste some directional signs for idiot like me.. (Maybe the management didn’t allow?) I dono about you but I was really freak out for about 2 mins before I try the door which I first thot is a carpark! And it turns out to be….. really a carpark… cum offices! Seriously the management floor plan at the lift was not helpful at all (for people who has not been there)!! T_T
20130706-235551.jpg

I reached kinda early, like (erm) 11:15am?? JPL staffs are all still packing and moving stuffs.. There is this lady whom i didn’t get her name, gave us (early birds) a friendly smile and thank us for coming down (so early) – lol!

About 11.30am, she walked to us with a bottle of juice and this time, she tell us that the sale will start in another 10-15 mins time!!! Yeah for the prompt update!!!! Yeah again for the juice – it’s not some alibaba juice ok!!

20130707-213425.jpg

It’s F&N Fruit Tree Fresh!! Call me cheapo! But this buys my patience!! My happy meter is full again!

20130706-235615.jpg

20130707-000217.jpg

Ok.. I will skipped the shopping part and jump straight to conclusion!
20130707-000328.jpg

20130707-000336.jpg

Masks.. Foot detox patch.. Mascara.. Essence.. Shampoo.. Treatment.. Shall we look at them individually now?

20130707-182055.jpg

SexyLook Hello Kitty Moisturizing & Whitening Rose Mask!! Seriously I’m not a HK fan but this ain’t gonna stop me from getting a good mask! Non-HK lover, don’t worry, you won’t look like HK when you’re doing your mask. Neither will you look like one when you’re done. It’s just marketing business, HK is a trend!

I tried this mask quite some times back and i like it and here i am grabbing more mask!! The rose scent is very soothing and the mask is really “well-marinated” in its essences! After placing the mask on my face, the essence will secretly roll down my chin to my neck minutes later – i had to pat the essence on my neck so that they get absorbed and not wasted while I’m masking! About 15-20 mins later, remove mask and gently message your face (& neck) in circular motion to get the essence penetrate through your skin! I pat them at time so that they can get in faster! =X (gently pat, not slap!)

And what’s better? Sale, of course! 3 boxes for $10 (UP: $9.90 per box if i didn’t hear wrongly from Doris (one of JPL staff)!! It’s almost like buy 1 get 2 FREEE! And u know what? I not only purchased 3 boxes, I was given a box for free too – won in the lucky draw after my payment!! That’s not all!!! Every customer gets a door gift too and I bet u know what is it.. (Yes..) a HK mask!

In total, it’s almost like $10 for 21 pcs (for me case)!!!! -faint-

20130707-182100.jpg

Next in the bag, masks from Morilins!!! This is definitely another good buy!!! 3 for $10 (UP: $9.90 per pcs)!! Ain’t that too good to be true!??! Although I only bought 3 but trust me, I’m already regretting for not getting more now! Why did I not grab the eye mask too!? Shucks!

Review will be updated after i tried! Meantime, carry on reading.. 🙂

Now open your eyes BIG! Coming up next is mad crazy sale item!!!

20130707-182114.jpg

Belif Hungarian Water Essence!! I’m using Belif products now and this essence sale came at the right time!! (I was still planning to grab them at belif store if I happen to pass by one! And now…. Mwahahahaa!! Call me lucky!!!!

This Hungarian Water Essence is a very light weight transparent essence. slightly heavier than water/toner only. It gets absorbs very quickly and and your skin can almost immediately feel moisten!

20130708-220905.jpg

(My long lash!!!!)

After almost 8hrs (it’s 2pm++ now), totally no sign of smudge nor “gothic” look! Still clinging to my lashes nicely!

Btw, before i applied my mascara, i used my eyelash curler to curl my lashes a little and until now my lashes are still curled! What does this shows? The mascara is good or the eyelash curler is better? I’ll snap some pic when i get home (5 hours later!)

8pm: Now that I’m home, my mascara is still smudge proof! No black tears no black shadow! You see!!

20130708-220954.jpg

20130708-221003.jpg

(I’m super loving this pic!!! See my eye!! I have dbl eye lid!!!! No glue no sticker ok!! Hahaha! This is call tired-eyelid! When my eye lid gets tired, it SAG and with a little push it will become a few-seconds-dbl-eye lid!)

20130708-221008.jpg

20130708-221153.jpg

20130708-221209.jpg

(Some side views to show you my extended lash with mascara)

This is really smear proof smudge proof waterproof!! And I think… I’M LOVING IT!!

There’s a newer version of this mascara which is “volume curl mascara”. Both have very good review if you do a simple google search.

20130707-182916.jpg

By K-Palette, here’s another goodie! Overnight Eye Mask! This deal is $10 for a pair and $14 for 2 pair (twin pack)! If u buy 2 packs of twin pack eye mask, it’s even cheaper!! But erm… I forgot how much it is..

20130708-001213.jpg

20130708-001225.jpg

(Image grabbed from K-Palette fb page)

I’m using it now (yes, its bed time already) and probably will update you guys how is it when I’m ready!!

Update on 8th Jul: I have difficuly falling aslp!! I feel so uncomfy having something around my eye… i flip and turn until 3am, i decided to wake up and re-position my eye mask, this time, a little distance from my eye.. and… yes, i fell aslp. I guess i placed it too near my eye (lash line).. I’m not sure if my eye bags are gone… but i know i gained a sleep line. the patch caused a sleep line on my face (sign of aging #101: sleep line takes a long time to recover!!)

20130708-214655.jpg

Will i continue to use this mask? OF COURSE – at least until this pcs wear out!! According the the staff, this mask can be reused for 3 months – as long as u keep it clean/hygiene!! After that i may not continue..

OKAY! Get ready once again to see the star product in my shopping list!

20130707-181930.jpg

The Essence of Nature foot detox patch!! This is the MAIN MAIN MAIN reason I’m here actually! To grab this foot patch!!

The UP for this box (7 pairs) is $29.90!! Now they are selling for… “Drumroll please!!”

*drumroll*

$20 for 2 box!!!!! No they’re not expired goods nor defect patch!! They’re selling at such low cost is because the box (packaging) is dented/damaged!!!!

There are new type of foot patch available too, ie: rose sap patch, eucalypts patch, warm sap patch, forest sap patch! But these new type is $21 per box! They sell individual pack too.. 1 pair for $4, 4 pairs for $10!! So I bought 4 pairs of rose sap patch too!

You can read my previous post HERE on the lavender foot patch I got from Vanity Trove.. I will be doing the rose sap patch soon!

Below are some benefits summary I’ve grabbed for The Essence of Nature Fb page! If you are keen to find out more, give them a like HERE and you will receive their first hand news update!!

20130707-181948.jpg

 

Update from daddy (9 July 2013): after using for 3 days, daddy said he feels lighter (when walking)! Sleep well and doesn’t feels tired easily the next morning! Best part is that he can shit without much difficult now (OMG, he already been a very regular toilet supporter and now.. hard core fan! LOL)

20130707-181954.jpg

(i think lavender is their all-time favourite/hot seller!)

20130707-182003.jpg

Last but not least…….. Below is a “last-minute-out-of-my-shopping-list” item I grabbed at the cashier counter because I’m still short of $3 to give me extra chance of lucky draw!

20130707-183504.jpg

Rêveur!! Understand from JPL that this is a silicon free shampoo and quite a hooha in Japan!

Rêveur’s unique formula of fine and well-foamed bubbles reduces the friction against the hair. This effectively avoids the common problem that non-silicone shampoo faces, which is to cause hair to be rough due to the lack of silicone.

20130707-234833.jpg

I tried it today and erm… Sorry, I dono if its because I’ve too much hair or the sachet has too little shampoo for me… I can’t seems to lather much foam. Is it because it doesn’t have silicon?? I don’t know. Seems like it’s not my cuppa tea.. But surprisingly when my hair is dry, it does feels more tame and less frizzy. My only problem is that the shampoo does not lather enuff foam for me to feel like i’m shampooing my hair..

Conclusion, this is one great sale event that I will look forward to again next year!!! Good buy & good products! Stay tune and I’ll update this post with review again..

PS: Pardon my typo for now! I’m tooo slpy to proofread anything. I will tidy up this post soon! Good night and cya soon!!!!

Belif – Believe in Truth

20130505-220626.jpg

Are you a Belifer? I am now!! hahaa.. Been wanting to try Belif for quite some time as i had rec’d their samples from those beauty boxes i subscribed.. Especially like the Hungarian Water Essence! I can really feel it giving my skin moisture and my skin doesn’t feels dry after using it during that period! So now, I’ve decided to give it a try!

20130505-220704.jpg

These are the samples I’ve got during my purchase.. It’s not that they love me so much but.. more like i’m a kiasu* aunty who brought all my redemption leaflets, coupons & even referred a member! hahahaha!

*Kiasu is a Hokkien word that literally means ‘fear of losing’ (Vernacular Chinese: 怕输). Examples of kiasu behaviour includes accumulating too much food on one’s plate during a buffet lunch in case there is no more food later or joining a queue many days in advance just to ensure that one successfully gets hold of the limited free tickets to events, promotions and/or shows.

Need a little history about Belif?? I have a little intro in one of my post about Belif which you can read up HERE.. So, that’s all for history! Let’s head to products!!!

20130505-220735.jpg

Mild and effective facial scrub

Mild and effective facial scrub is a soft but effective facial scrub which exfoliates with natural exfoliant lygodium japonicum and unblocks your pores with fibers extracted from French cotton plant. The facial scrub containing Napiers formula DTX frees you and your skin from stressful dead cells.

How to use? Dry your face after cleansing and squeeze a proper amount of the scrub on your palm. Spread the scrub over your face avoiding the eyes and mouth. Gently massage your face for 30 seconds. When dead cells come off, rinse the scrub with warm water.

My thoughts? No thoughts yet as I have not use this product.. 🙂

20130505-220745.jpg

Creamy cleansing foam Moist

This cleansing foam for normal to combination and dry skin types, is made with natural cleansing and moisturizing properties and using foaming action to softly wash away impurities from your skin. Formulated with Soapwort rich in vitamin C and Wormwood to remove toxins, it produces clean skin without dryness after washing.

How to use? Take a penny-sized amount of the product in your palm, and lather it with water. Massage gently and thoroughly over face, and rinse with lukewarm water.

My thought? I like this! for my big face, i used less than a penny-size and it’s enuff to lather foam.. After wash i do not feel tightness on my face and my face feels clean too!i would definitly recommend this to ladies like me who have combination skin! (I have dry skin surface but oily T-zone)

Update on 26 May 2013:

20130526-144946.jpg

20130526-144952.jpg

To conclude my experience, dun waste time trying the scrub. The micro beads in the scrub is very minimum and doesn’t make me feel like it did its job.. 😦 There are definitely better scrub out there.. =X but the cleansing foam is definitely a good buy! Just a green bean size and u can cleanse your whole face!! Sweet!

20130505-220757.jpg

Crystal cleansing foam Fresh

Creamy cleansing foam refreshes the skin and deep cleanses impurities in pores. Formulated with antioxidant-rich Mediterranean Lemon Balm, it rejuvenates and purifies men’s skin dulled and tired by smoking, drinking, and stress.

How to use? Wash your face, pump once or twice in your palm and lather the solution with water between hands. Massage gently and thoroughly over face, and rinse with lukewarm water.

My thought? The promoter told me this is more for oily skin but combination skin ladies can use this too as it’s a deep cleansing foam! Yes, DEEP CLEANSE!

20130505-220807.jpg

Hungarian water essence

This essence contains hydration secrets of the legendary Hungarian Water that enabled Hungarian Queen Elizabeth to maintain her beauty into old age. This product is applied cool like a spritz of water, and clings to the skin lightly without stickiness, prolonging suppleness and softness.

How to use? After applying toner, pump two to three times in your palm and apply gently over the face, moving along the skin surface.

My thought? Very moisturizing! i like this very much! It looks a little like toner, a stickier version of toner.. Does not have any sticky sensation and get absorbs very quickly.. Naise!

20130505-220818.jpg

The true cream – aqua bomb

With Napiers aqua formula containing Lady’s Mantle, often called “a woman’s hydrating herb,” this refreshing gel cream supplies instant moisture to the skin while forming a protective layer that wraps the skin in comfort.

How to use? After using essence or emulsion, dispense a sufficient amount, gently apply, and spread.

My thought? feels that it’s quite similar to Hungarian water essence, just that it’s more to cream type than water type. It did give me a more moisturized skin but i still prefer Hungarian water essence!

“Tip – for regular make up users this aqua bomb can help in cleansing of makeup residue.” Quoted from Vanity Trove site

20130505-220824.jpg

(First Aid) Transforming peel off mask

This unique peel-off mask is formulated with Lemon balm and White willow bark to remove skin debris while tightening pore and providing skin elasticity. Upon contact with water, this creamy mask transforms itself into a thin layer of gel, making easier to take it off without skin irritation.

How to use? Apply a thin layer of mask to clean and dry face, avoiding eye and mouth area. Leave on 10~15 minutes until the mask becomes completely dry and rinse with water. Upon contact with water, this dried mask transforms itself into a thin layer of gel so that peeling-off process can be easier and less irritating.

My thought? No thoughts yet as I have not use this product.. 🙂

20130505-220833.jpg

20130505-220840.jpg

How to use? After cleansing, apply toner and essence. Before or after using cream, apply a thin layer and gently smooth over the entire face. Leave on overnight and rinse off in the morning.

My thoughts? erm.. it’s pretty sticky before u apply to you skin.. it’s like the cheese on the pizza when u are pulling it while it’s hot (but this mask is cool).. it’s may look beige in color but after you apply, it’s transparent. My skin feels quite soothing after applying it, idk why.. The next day when i wake up, i think the mask got fully absorbed into my skin~ Why i say that? because when i take my morning shower, my face doesn’t have those soapy feeling when i washed them! Good or bad?? LOL~

20130505-220856.jpg

Peat miracle revital eye cream

Humic acid of peat extract in Peat miracle revital eye cream plumps up the eye area and its GABA element accelerates the composition of collagens, which helps to minimizes fine lines around your eyes and smoothes away wrinkles.

How to use? After applying essence or moisturizer, gently pat a small amount of the eye cream around and under the eye with the ring finger until absorbed.

My thoughts? I will never be able to share with you my thoughts on this as i gave this to my mom.. but i’ll see how’s her wrinkles (any missing!!?) and i’ll keep you guys posted!! hahaha!

20130505-220922.jpg

And what have i decided to bring home?? Yes, these two products! Milky moisturizer Hydra balancing & Creamy cleansing foam Moist!

Have i not share with you the info for Milky moisturizer? Well, this moisturizer for normal to combination skin types (my type!!) is formulated with Sage extracts that help improve the skin’s effective balance between oil and moisture, and its natural capacity to hydrate to keep the skin moisturized and glowing with vitality.

How to use? After applying toner or essence, pump two to three times in your palm and apply evenly over the entire face, moving outwards from the center.

My thoughts? Great! no greasy or sticky feeling and so far so good!! 😀

For my mom, she bought home a Peat miracle revital cream. Similar to the eye cream but this is for the face!

Cell turnover means a cycle of your skin where young cells replace aged skin cells. As you get older, your turnover loses its rhythm and speeds up aging process. Peat miracle revital cream contains peat extract and improves your turnover rate by 9.28%, rejuvenating and hydrating your skin.

How to use? After using essence or lotion, apply an appropriate amount over the face and spread it until it is absorbed.

Very happy with my purchase and even happier with my caricature drawing!!!!

20121124-195223.jpg

 

Alright, coming next are masksss! Masks from Sexy Look and Beauty Buffet!

One thing i like about Sexy Look mask is that they can really cover your whole face to chin area.. why? because they have ear hooks that can secure you mask in place and lets your neck get supple too!! V V face on the way!!!!

 

20121124-195232.jpg

Call me a moutain tortoise.. but seriously i haven tried any of beauty buffet mask yet!! i believe my girl friend would have tried!! she’s a beauty freak! =P

OK this is what I’m pretty excited about!! CIRACLE’s Goodbye Blackheads!!!! this is a cotton mask which helps in the removal of sebum, blackheads, whiteheads, sebum and dirt, especially in the presence of blocked pores. Each Blackhead Off Cotton Mask is made with 100% cotton and is soaked in natural plant extracts such as Witch Hazel, Peppermint, Sage and Mistletoe, to help draw toxin out of the skin.

2. Leave mask on for at least 15 minutes.

4. Follow up with toner if you wish.

This is similar to Skinmiso’s pore pack but a little more affordable?? Just S$32.90 for 20 pcs of mask and its only a 1-step thing to get rid your enemies!!! (Skinmiso cost S$27.90 and its quite troublesome in a way – see post HERE & HERE)

 

20121124-195250.jpg

 

Next, DrGL.’s Collagen Essence! Heard many hooha about it but this is the first time i touched this brand!! So what does “GL” denotes? It’s Georgia Lee!

DrGL® is a range of custom skincare personally formulated for Asian skin types and climate by Dr Georgia Lee. Eschewing the mass for a carefully crafted selection of premium quality products, DrGL® offers the modern busy individual maximum efficacy, minimum fuss.

 

While her clinical experience gave her the confidence to start her very own skincare line, it was her personal experience that provided the final push. A serious allergic reaction resulted in blisters that covered the left side of her face, leaving her with persistent hyperpigmentation which only resolved after treatment with a cream that she customized for herself. While traumatic, this episode piqued her interest in skincare and motivated her to delve further into its development.

 

This Collagen Essence is suitable for even the most sensitive skin, this superbly hydrating formula penetrates deep within to deliver and retain moisture beyond skin’s surface. Lightweight texture keeps skin comfortable in hot and humid weather while still providing more than adequate hydration in drying winter conditions.

Guess how much does the regular 30ml size cost… $49.90?? NO! $99.90?? NOO! $149.90!?? NOOOO!!! It’s S$198!! Ok, so we have here a 10ml travel size.. *calculating* WOW! this 10ml is easily worth S$66!! Precious baby!!

20121124-195256.jpg

Had tried a pump on my hand and i think its pretty good. it’s like water/toner whatever u call it! Pretty fast absorption! and does not have sticky or oily after effect.. (no wonder it cost so much!)

Alright, ready for next product?? Well, next product is actually a repeated one! got the same thing in previous Trove.. it’s either this product is VERY GOOD or it’s some left over.. hmm.. you decide!

20121124-195320.jpg

 

Last month, i’ve got this same Ujene sample pack but.. have not started using yet. >_<

20121124-195325.jpg

 

OK! last thing… something that caught me off guard! Waxing Strips!! who would expect to see this!? LOL! ok or at least i din expect to see this.. for a moment i thot i’m being spied!! WHY?? because i’ve been looking for deals to get my underarm waxing done and the next moment *POOF* VT put a pack of waxing strip in my trove! Ain’t that.. MAGICAL?! hahahaha!

20121124-195348.jpg

 

But i hope this waxing strip is not too complicated to use!

20121124-195353.jpg

 

Ok.. So that’s the end of this month’s product.. No WAIT! one last one.. for this who have shared VT’s post, i believe would have rec’d a pm from her to choose the type of (fragrance) soap bar you like RIGHT!!?? There were 4 choice if i did not remember wrongly.. Original, Lavender, Spearmint and…… one i forgot! >_<

Hahaha.. So here’s the SOAP!! I chose Spearmint Sparkle!

20121124-195305.jpg

Spearmint Sparkle refreshes & stimulates the skin’s natural balance. It also soothes and heals acne! Suitable for combination to oily skin!

Lavender Heaven is a sweet fresh scent with a calming, healing and restorative effect. The perfect fragrance for people with skin problems such as eczema & psoriasis. Suitable for normal to dry skin!

Original Cleansing Bar cleanses the skin, encourages its capacity for self-repair, hydrates & promotes elasticity. Suitable for most sensitive skin, even those allergic to essential oils since none are added!

20121124-195310.jpg

Cute little soap bar.. ^_^
