This trove has got you covered!! Cleaner, toner, moisturizer, sun block!

Chia seed has grown popularity among ladies! Not only it’s good as a food (rich in omega 3 fatty acids!) it’s also good for our skin too! If you didn’t know it helps to retain moisture! Moisture is very important to our skin/body!

When our skin have enough moisture, it will not generate excess sebum causing our skin to be oily and that’s clean and clear~! (That’s my understand!)

IMG_5376

When you’ve got your face covered, you need to pamper your body too! Body wash and body lotion from Etude House!

This series is formulated with milk protein, ivy extract and the petit bijou fragrance to soften and relieve stressed skin! Smells good and like baby powder! It’s also good to know that the formula is free of sulphates, parabens and ethanol..

IMG_5379

Clinique’s top selling moisturizer, Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief, is lightweight cream-gel plumps skin with 24-hour hydration.. Importantly, it’s suitable for all skin type!

IMG_5384

The Brighten My Day All-Over Skin Perfecting Brightening And Hydrating Emulsion features a lightweight and oil-free formula that makes sure skin feel fresh and well-moisturised. It is also designed to refine and tighten pores while reducing the appearance of dark spots and redness.

IMG_5382

Korean beauty brand CNP Laboratory’s new Invisible Peeling Booster is a leave-on formula that gently exfoliates skin and keeps it smooth and hydrated.

Exfoliating is an important part of our skincare routine! it’s only when u exfoliate, dead skin cells will be gone and your skin will look brighter and absorb nutrients better! You know what, don’t be lazy!

IMG_5380

Illamasqua Matte Veil is the matte version of Hydra veil. I had used hyrda veil before and find it not too bad.. For matte lover, I’m sure you’ll love this!

An oil control primer, Matte Veil preps the skin to create the perfect matte base for make-up application. It’s mattifying cream-gel formula absorbs excess oil whilst retaining the skin`s natural moisture levels, providing a silky, soft finish. Enhancing make-up longevity, Matte Veil also controls shine throughout the day and into the evening, keeping skin feeling healthy and balanced..

IMG_5386

Last but not least, one of my favourite makeup remover!

Hydrabio H2O is the 1st and only dermatological micellar water perfectly compatible with the skin. Its fatty acid esters, the constituent elements of micelles, are similar to the phospholipids of the skin cell membranes and naturally help rebuild the skin’s hydrolipidic film. Thus, Hydrabio H2O guarantees unrivalled tolerance and comfort for optimum make-up removing efficacy. Moreover, its Aquagenium® exclusive biological patent retrains the skin to activate its natural moisturising capacities by stimulating the production of aquaporins, water channels in the skin, and retain the water it needs to be balanced.

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!!

IMG_1543

NylonVT_brtc

Those ingredients aside!! Look at the mask!! SO CUTE! So eye-catching!!! I can see myself as some dynasty’s empress dowager when using this – back to the future you say??!!

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!!

NylonVT_brtc2

This is too cute!! I shall share the my look on IG when I used it!!

My stash of… Lipcolors!

20131103-235357.jpg

After a LOOONG wait! Here comes the post on my stash of lip colors!!! Some of my favorites are listed tooo!! Man! Can’t wait to share with you!!!

Etude House Fresh Cherry Tint! ✿◕ ‿ ◕✿ – #02 Cherry Pink

Type: Tint

What I like: Natural and pinkish shade on my lips!

What I don’t like: If i have to say one, its probably gonna be the color is too light?

20140218-203320.jpg 20131106-114554.jpg

 

20130618-000305.jpg  20130618-000311.jpg

How it look: As you can see, the color is pretty sweet! Sweet pink! It’s quite runny (that’ how a lip tint suppose to be!) and sheer!

20140218-203326.jpg 20140218-203330.jpg

See how natural it blends and doesn’t looks drama! It feels like applying water on your lips, color water perhaps? Hahaha! I actually did a post on this lip tint before because it performed better than expected!

Next up is my first ever RED lip color!! Seriously RED!!

Shiseido Lacquer Rouge ✿◕ ‿ ◕✿

Type: Lacquer Rouge

What I like: Super sexy! I like how the red has that bit of gold shimmer that enhance the whole lip color.

20130816-223130.jpg  20130816-223134.jpg

 

What I don’t like: I don’t know.. perhaps the color is too opaque I have to be careful every min..??

How it look: SEXY!!!! hahahah!! I’m not touching details on this as you can read it from my previous post here

20130816-223308.jpg

But I’m more than glad to show you how the color looks like on my lips!! 😉

20140218-203338.jpg 20140218-203345.jpg

Definitely a great color to use for party and prom!

Bobbi Brown ✿◕ ‿ ◕✿

Type: Lip gloss

What I like: Nude shade and it has shimmer!

What i don’t like: It gives my allergy!!!!

20131225-150128.jpg 20131225-150144.jpg

How it looks: This is a nude color and it’s glossy nude with a little shimmer. It looks much darker (browner) in the bottle. When applied, the color lightens.

20131225-150159.jpg

20131225-151423.jpg

Ok, here comes my favourite!! *excited*

M.A.C Lipstick ✿◕ ‿ ◕✿

Type: Lipstick

20140215-001712.jpg 20140215-001719.jpg

What I like: I thought I will never understand why people will go crazy for M.A.C until my first application of this lip color! It’s smooth! It’s lasting! It’s simply worth every cents it cost! All it takes is just one stroke and you will fall in love with this precious darling and (yes!) it’s one of my favorite now!

20140215-001734.jpg

This is a limited edition color – neutral beige of Naked Proof Cremesheen Lipstick – one of the lipstick from Illustrated by Rebecca Moses Collection (Lip Bag by Rebecca Moses: Nude x3)

20140215-001743.jpg

What I don’t like: NOTHING!

20140215-001747.jpg

How it look: Looks really natural yet not boring! The nude is slightly brown-peachy tone and it can cover the darkened area on my lips (due to chapping) without looking too gross! Girls who doesn’t like glossy look or pink shade probably will love this (at least I do..)! Though it’s not glossy, it is not matte finish either.. That’s another reason why I love it!!

On days when I’m on my casual style, this is definitely my must-wear!!

M.A.C Tinted Lipglass ✿◕ ‿ ◕✿

Type: Lip gloss

20140215-002632.jpg 20140215-002638.jpg

What I like: Smooth application and color is really cheery!!

A unique lip gloss available in a wide variety of colours that can create a high gloss, glass-like finish or a subtle sheen. Designed to be worn on its own, over Lip Pencil or Lipstick, Tinted Lipglass is the perfect product for creating shine that lasts. It’s pigmented, very shiny and can impart subtle or dramatic colour. It contains Jojoba Oil to help soften and condition the lips. Tinted Lipglass is packaged in a convenient bottle with a sponge tip applicator that provides a quick, smooth, even application.

20140215-002649.jpg

This is another limited edition color – Drawn To Chic from Illustrated by Rebecca Moses Collection (Lip Bag by Rebecca Moses: Nude x3)! Ehem!! Also another favorite of mine!!!

What I don’t like: It feels a lil sticky when applied but after a while, you’ll get used to it.20140215-002657.jpg

20140215-002715.jpg

How it look: Obviously this is not nude!! It looks so HOT PINK in the tube but was lighter when applying on lips! This color brightens you up (kinda makes u look fairer, IMO), makes you look bold yet feminine!

If you are a glossy girl,. you will love how this lipglass shines on your lips!

Not that I wanna repeat this but it’s like I finally understand why M.A.C is so well-loved by girls of all age!! Like OPI, you will never understand why people love it so much until you try it once!! …..and get hooked on it. T_T

Laneige Snow Crystal Pure Lipgloss ✿◕ ‿ ◕✿ LR107 Veil Rose

Type: Lip gloss

What I like: Color is light and sweet. It is scented lip gloss and shimmers~!!

20140215-003436.jpg 20140215-003445.jpg

What I don’t like: Not as lasting as I thought..

20140215-003501.jpg

20140215-003508.jpg

How it look: It’s pretty sheer (more low profile) as compared to M.A.C’s color but they have this light fragrance that M.A.C doesn’t have. That explain why it was one of my favorite nude color before I receive my Christmas gift (Lip Bag by Rebecca Moses: Nude x3)!! 😉

If you want highly pigmented color, this is definitely not for you! However, if what you want is just a little shine on your lips then get this!

Laneige Snow Crystal Pure Lipgloss ✿◕ ‿ ◕✿ LR09 Cherry Pink

Type: Lip gloss

20140215-003519.jpg 20140215-003525.jpg

What I like: This is slightly more pigmented as compared to the previous color. SLIGHTLY only! LOL…

20140215-003531.jpg

20140215-003541.jpg

How it look: Pinkier lips as compared to Veil Rose and I think it looks sweet too! I prefer this color over Veil Rose because the color is more visible! I mean, that’s is why you put on a lipstick/lipcolor right?? Else a lip balm or lip gloss will just do the trick (this doesn’t include nude color)!

VDL Tintbar Triple Shot ✿◕ ‿ ◕✿

Type: Tint Bar

20140401-221056.jpg

What I like: I totally love the idea of this triple shot tintbar!! It can create a gradient lip color in juz one lipstick!! Yesh, now there’s no need for me to bring around so many lip color to create those gradient lip look! And you don’t need special technique to put this color on!!! They are not only look amazing on your lips, they are very moisturizing too!! They feel like lip balm on your lips and it’s not sticky too!!!

What I don’t like: Not many color options

How it look: I’m gonna show you the first color I put in my shopping basket…. Btw, the price I got them during the sale was 1 for S$2X (can’t remember) and 2 for S$40! So of cuz, woman’s instinct (!!!), grab TWO!! I think the original price was $28 for one. Correct me if I’m wrong… Ok, back to the color that I wanna show u!

601 Triple Peach

20140401-231150.jpg

This is more to an orange tone lip color. Natural yet not boring (because of the gradient effect!!)

20140401-231208.jpg

Totally in love with it!! If you’re a light color person, I think you should keep one of this in your stash! It’s gonna enhance your lips sooo much!!

And the next color is ….

502 Triple Bergundy

20140401-231409.jpg

Before I apply I thought I’m gonna have some brown dracula-like lips! Because the dark color look so brownish!!! However the sales person promised that it’s actually a pink tone then i tried it on my hand… True enough… It’s pink!!!

20140401-231431.jpg

As compare to the Triple Peach, this color is more playful and feminine! The gradient is more visible too!

Side track a bit! I think another name for gradient lips is called ombre/bitten lips, some even call it Korean lips! Just google and you can see a list of tutorial teaching you how to create gradient lips! But now, with VDL’s Tintbar Triple Shots, all I need to do is apply this lipstick per normal! The only “technique” I need to know is how to hold the lipstick right so that you get the darker colors on your inner lips! Not too tough right?? LOLX!!

I’m so happy I found this!! I believe very soon other brands will come out with something similar (or even better)! Here’s one more pic to show you the difference in color between them, on my hand..

20140401-225438.jpg

Update on 28 Jun 2014: Can’t resist this awesome concept, I bought a new COLOR on Qoo10!!! Yeahhh~!!

501 Triple Red

Lip04 Lip03

I thought it will be dramatic red.. But fortunately they’re pretty sheer hence won’t be too shocking to put them on..

20140701-214118-78078152.jpg 20140701-214117-78077533.jpg

They actually looks pretty natural right? It’s slightly lighter than Triple Burgundy yet color still visible and sweet.. 🙂

Well, no lips are not suitable for colors, you just have to take good care of them! How I do it? Easy!!

  • Drink more water – it will make your lips supple.
  • Do your weekly lip scrub – to exfoliate dead skin.
  • Apply lip balm before sleep – it’s the BEST time to heal chapped lips. With a good lip balm, you can see improvement overnight!
  • Don’t peel your chapped lips – you will make it worst!
  • Do not use your tongue (saliva) to lick your lips just because your feel they are dry – your are making it even drier by doing that!!

Keep to this 5 points and very soon, your lips will look sexy and healthy!

Etude House Silk Scarf

Do you know what has happen to me early this week (which is Monday!) It’s so not like me until i thought its Friday 13th! I forgot to bring my staff pass to work – stand outside the door for a while until someone who happen to go to the restroom and open the door for me! I forgot to bring my work station cabinet key – i cant get my note book to refer to pending jobs! I forgot to bring sweater – the office is as cold as a fridge! I forgot to bring the River Safari photo – to scan & to give my sis! I forgot to bring Colgate Plax – to return my sis (her kids left them in my bathroom)! that’s not worst….

My wordpress decided to go on strike.. The whole layout was so wrong that i dono what to do with it!! My side bar went all the way to bottom.. my “Older Post” link went in between the post and the alignment of the last few post is all out – one word, MESS! I get my bud to help and she too is clueless.. we tried ways and means but still.. nth is right!

Finally today, i think my blog is in a good mood, everything went back to normal! My apologies to subscribers who has been receiving email notification about me posting new post! Argggg.. it’s so outta control!

As for now, this post is for real!! A post about Etude House Hair Mask! Bought this mask from qoo10 when they’re having 1 for 1 promo! Man why not!?

20130623-163325.jpg

20130623-163331.jpg

There is picture illustration for your reference.. It’s ok if you don’t understand Korean because there is English instruction for you! Even without instruction i think its pretty str8 fwd to understand..

20130623-163338.jpg

So step 1? Apply hair treatment cream to your towel-dry-wet-hair. The cream smell nice and they are pretty sufficient for my slightly longer than shoulder length hair.. i can apply them all the way till the root.. Any hair longer than that you might want to just apply more on hair ends and move upward if you have enough to go on..

20130623-163345.jpg

After applications, just massage massage massage then you can proceed to step 2. Step 2 is just to to cover your hair with the essence hair cap.

20130623-163355.jpg

When i open up the hair cap, it seems pretty dry.. i’m just wondering where is the essence, is it all dry up?? Even until I’m done with my hair mask, i still think the essence must have all dried up that why they are selling 1 for 1!? SO sad! But after i washed away the hair mask, my hair feels smooth! Tho my permed hair doesn’t seems to be more tame but i can feel that they are less frizzy!! (i still don’t believe there are essence in the hair cap!! LOL)

If you’re asking if i will buy again… my answer is gona be.. Maybe not? There are better hair mask out der which i had tried and still loving them now! Kracie is one of them!

Fresh Cherry Tint

Welcome to reading a post that I nvr thought I would post! Seriously!! I nvr though I would!

Today’s post is all about Lip Tint from Étude House! Yes, lip tint! Lip tint is something that is less ‘strong’ than lipstick but is more ‘strong’ than lip gloss. It gives a more natural look and also lasts longer!!

Unlike Tony Moly’s liquid lip tint, this lip tint is a little more heavier than liquid- like emulsion??! Looks thick but actually very lighweight!

I think picture speaks a thousand words!

The colour looks very striking… i got a shock and was still thinking “i’m not gona wear this BRIGHT PINK on my lips and go out!”

But it actually turns out ok! The colour will tone down and blend with your lip’s colour.. Girls who doesnt like to be loud and bold or girls who wants a nature finish, this is definitely for you!! WORTH the try!

Sorry that i din not mgt to show u my lips without the tint because (like i said earlier) i wasn’t prepared to do this post! hahaha.. It was until i put on the lip tint and got too amazed by the result then i decided to share this with you! It was all sooo impromptu!

I have very dry chapped lips and thus lip colour is always dull and ‘dark’? But this lip tint gave my lips a hint of pink and made it looks healthier! And did i mention? the sweet cherry scent is so so nice! Made me feels like a young girl once again!!

You only need a slightly bigger then sesame size amount to tint you lips! Too much will makes it too pink and i think it will be very unnatural! After that, you can topped with a (shimmer) lip gloss or lip balm to give it an extra shine – for that first few hours? At least you leave home looking beautiful!

I tried to clean off tint but it did not come off completely. Indeed very lasting! Even after i had my meal, the tint is still visible and still so natural! hahaha.. But of cause it’s not permenant! With the aid of your makeup remover, this tint will be cleaned in no time.

See fingers stained too! haha! Overall i think this is a pretty good experience! I guess i will grap one some day! I’m not a lip colour person but this lip tint sure gets me excited!!

Here’s the shower cologne.. it has a like rose scent.. pretty soothing.. mi like.. but does shower cologne acts like a perfume or eau de toilette? Really like the light rose scent!
