20121129-153037.jpg

SEEEEE!! It’s my bellabox time again!! But this will be my last box already. i decided to cancel my subscription.. Not that i had some real bad experience to the extend i wanna quit this but i think for S$19.90 (to me it’s S$20 already..).. i would rather pay abit more for a VT which, IMO, has more exciting products for us to explore..

20121129-154548.jpg

So what do we have here? 🙂

20121129-154619.jpg

Loreal Shampoo.. Absolut Repair.. Had tried.. its good but not the best. =X

I don’t feel my hair condition really improve after using. I know i cant see immediate effect but.. as compare to Kracie Hair product i got from VT, i this this still lose out abit..

20121129-154727.jpg

20121129-154748.jpg

i never liked to use oil on my hair.. so i guess i will have to share this w one of my lucky friend.. hee!! =P

20121129-154631.jpg

Face Mask..! Mask is something i will never have enough!! This EGF silk mask is nvr too late to rejuvenate my face..

20121129-154643.jpg

Next, we have this hydrating creme from Benta Berry.. used ONCE.. what i think? nothing happen.. haha not like i want to see my face becoming very beautiful overnight but…  really i din feel anything special.. =X

20121129-154658.jpg

20121129-154905.jpg

20121129-155212.jpg

Are you bliss-ed ~ hahahaa! well.. i pretty bliss with the EGF Silk Mask i’ve got!!

Definitely looking fwd to use it SOOOON!

Loreal Lucent Magique BB Cream

SERIOUSLY.. I gave up in waiting for this Lucent Magique BB Cream (sample). It took forever to reach mi! I’m very excited about this product initially.. but now, NAH!

20121019-231501.jpg  20121019-231521.jpg

This is Loreal’s latest beauty product! The 10-in-1 magique bb cream!

20121019-231559.jpg  20121019-231735.jpg

It comes out white with “microbeads”… i thot this whole thing is gona WHITEN my face.. O_O

20121019-231900.jpg  20121019-231909.jpg

But as i blends it on my hand… i think the “microbeads” sort of break open and becomes nude colour..

20121019-231925.jpg

Thus it eventually does blends in with your skin giving you a more radiant look. Seems like “radiant” is the beauty key word now…

Sorry for the really short post, i promised to “amend” this post once i start using this product!!

My Whitening Treatment

FRECKLES!! My all-time-killer! It made me hate sun~! seriously~!

Went shopping one fine day w my girlfriend and got to know that Loreal is having a promotion!! What promo?? ha~ Dual products for a lower price! For my case, its definitely gona be my whitening products!! they have anti-aging set too. But i doubt i’ll need that for now!

So i grabbed just this whitening set! It consist of a full size Youth Code Boosting Essence & White Perfect Laser Essence.

 

I’ve been using them for quite soe time.. about 2 weeks??? what’s my thot.. hmm.. seriously i think i need more time to tell. I don’t feel that my freckles have gotten any lighter – maybe i see them everyday so i don’t feel any diff?? but at least im happy that i dun see more growing overnight!

I don know if this happens to u. but it happens to me! i can have “new” freckles overnight!! I looked at myself in the mirror every morning (not on purpose but the mirror is there when i brush my teeth!! how to not look at myself??!), and sometimes i can see new “things” on my face.. suddenly i can have one new spot on my nose and it will stay forever.. -___- Thus im actually quite happy that after using these product, i don see new spot (at last for now!)

If it takes 3 months to see result i promise i will stay hardworking to see results!! >_<

BTW, did i mention?? i went for a pigmentation specialist facial that day!! WHERE?? It’s……

*click image to proceed to site*

I got a complimentary session at Shakura because…. *can’t remember why* probably some deal promo..

I must be honest!! It really lightens my pigmentation in just one treatment!! Other than pigmentation, my blackheads were 60% gone!! Pores were also minimized!! The facial massage was good too… one other thing i like about it is.. the extraction process was “hands-on”! No equipment used! thus its not that PAIN LIKE HELL! Seriously, i hate extraction everytime i go facial but i kinda love the extraction here…

Sadly i was too tired and hungry to actually stay behind to hear wat treatment package they can offer me and i decided to leave the place for my late late dinner!! im glad they didn’t really do much hard sell on me (and my girlfriend – we went together, FYI) as i read many review say they are very POWERFUL in hard-selling! We SURVIVED that stage!! hahahaha! Probably because it was really late the time i went so (my facial ended around 9.30pm).. everybody wanted to go home SOON and we ended everything without wasting much time. CHOP CHOP GO! hahaha!

seriously if i have the vitamin $$, i will sign up for package there.. but location really is a turn off.. But again!!! for beauty sake, i think location is not an issue! HAHAHA!!!

女人就是爱美~!!

20120911-202527.jpg

ta-daaa~~ Vichy Bi-White Med Deep Corrective Whitening Lotion! This lotion was specifically tested on sensitive Asian skin! Including the amazing Vichy spring water as a base ingredient, this moisturizing lotion is fast penetrating without ever leaving a sticky after-effect. Amazingly, it targets pigmentation at its source by using DRM-WHITE technology, which controls the biological signal that creates excess melanin and darkness in skin tone deep at its root. The result: clean, bright, light skin is revealed with remarkable softness. Hypoallergenic and paraben-free.

Well that’s what it claims but let’s wait till i used it..

How to use? …Apply every morning and/or night after your cleanser, using a cotton pad. To maximize the whitening efficacy, use within Bi-WHITE MED skincare routine.

Cost? …200ml for S$49

August Bellabox – I Love Singapore

First thing first… Happy Belated National Day Singapore!!!

So here’s my Bellabox!! But before that…I’m disappointed with Courex! Got an email from Bellabox before national day saying that our boxes are on the way to us! Yippie…!! I waited and waited.. No sign of my box & it’s already been more than 5 days! 7 days to be exact.

So I decided to go online to check out the courier status. And to my HORROR (!), the status was…… “delivery unsuccessful – no one home” on 11 Aug!!! What is this!?!? There was no call to me from Courex!! Not even a delivery notice was found!!

I later wrote a FEEDBACK to Bellabox (cc Courex). Excuses are all I see from Courex! Was told that they try contacting my several time but couldn’t get hold of mi. (seriously, my cell was on 24/7 but I don’t see any missed call!) they even said there should be a note left behind and a lady from courex even told me I should have rec’d an SMS informing me of the delivery unsuccessful..

I only got one word for them.. Bullsh*t. If u din call means u din call. Stop being so defensive.

If this is going to happen again I think I might as well cancel all my subscription since I don’t feel being a valued member.. I can save some $$$ too if I cancelled them! I wonder where did that malay courier gone too.. Sigh..

A bit reluctant to finish up this post after this shitty incident.. But still, here’s my box..

20120819-205625.jpg

20120819-205633.jpg

It’s the Bella bag again! But a little different from the previous one. This is without drawstring.. Just a bag.

Erm.. I forgot to snap a pic of everything.. So will upload it next time!

20120819-205645.jpg

Philosophy’s sample.. U know, i’ve been eyeing this Hope in a Jar since Sephora published in their FB.. It sounds as if it can really give me HOPE! haha thos i haven try buy below are just some more pics to show u..

20120819-205701.jpg

20120819-205717.jpg

20120819-205710.jpg

 

Update on 29 August 2012: tried a few times.. like printed, it feels really like oil-free..so far so good but.. Like purity, it has this not very fragrance smell. mi no like. lucky i did not do an impulse buy at Sephora the other day! If u asked mi, i will say there are other better products out there that works the same but smells better! at least i feel more comfy using those.

20120819-205728.jpg

20120819-205737.jpg

and this kinda looks not bad!! hahahaha!

Update on 28 August 2012: This is nightmare.. this purity smell can kills! it did remove my makeup but i din apply a lot so i can’t comment if it is really good or just happen that my makeup is light. but still, i can’t get over the strong chemicated-like smell… i.. will not use this again seriously.. 

20120819-215802.jpg

20120819-215820.jpg

Next, Loreal Youth Code! i think will pass this to my mom..but again.. i wouldnt want my mom to look younger than mi!!! >_<

Update on 29 August 2012: I’ve tried this for about a week or so? hmm.. quite happy w the result. it din really make my face wrinkles-free like a baby but i can see that fine lines are now reduced! will definitely recommend this to ladies who wish to say bye bye to fine lines!!

20120819-215854.jpg

Nothing much to elaborate about this.. China Glaze Polish (80703 Senorita Bonita). not my color.

20120819-215903.jpg

20120819-215916.jpg

20120819-215926.jpg

Anna Sui eye shadow.. again.. not my color..20120819-215936.jpg

20120819-215951.jpg

20120820-171713.jpg

Another Enavose product. After using so many, i think only the hydrating mask is good. Together in this month’s box, there’s also a $5 gift voucher for Probiotics Exfoliaance Gommage.

Update on 27 August: Used this today! Mixed feeling.. hahaha..it feels so “nothing fascinating” about it when i press out a amount on my hand. However, as i massage on my face for few seconds (about 20-30 secs??) “ahhh..” is what came out from my mouth after that.. the flakes of dead skin starts appearing! SO i massage even moreee (hoping to see more flakes! – probably not! more flakes = more dead skin!?? gosh..) After im done massaging, i wash away with water and i goes “OOOH!!” again! (what now??) to my surprise, my skin feels soft and SMOOTH! really SMOOTH! if only i can use this everyday.. can i??

I have taken some pic of the product that was tested on my hand but i don have it now. Will upload it when i have access.. stay tune!

20120820-171734.jpg

20120820-171742.jpg

Besides that, there’s also Anna Sui Gift Voucher… and… 20120820-171749.jpg

Philosophy’s Exclusive gift.

20120820-171757.jpg

LAST BUT NOT LEAST!!! The usual bellabox info card… i think it will be better is u click to see larger image of this than my post!!! >_<

Sorry for this Not-Very-Sincere Post!!! I’m too lazy.. TODAY.
