Bellabox Giftbox!

20130921-022805.jpg

Straight to the point! See… You like my giftbox too?? Received this complimentary gift box (worth S$125) from Bellabox because I’m subscribed to them (again)! See… below was (part of) the email I received… Subscribe now (then) and receive a free $125 gift box!! Why not! It’s like paying $19.95 for 2 box! Capture

Soooo, first thing that attracted me to get this gift box is because of this….!

20130921-022817.jpg

Anna Sui 870!! A bright cheery yellow! Opaque yellow! Vivid yellow!

20130921-022828.jpg

Broad brush is another thing I like about it!

20130921-022836.jpg

20130921-022843.jpg

Index finger: 2 coat

Middle finger: 1 coat

If you like this yellow, you can check out from HERE to see which is your nearest outlet to grab one!

20130921-022850.jpg

Well, that’s not the only thing that caught my attention! Another reason why I chose this gift box is because… it has twistband!!

Twistbands are really useful, pretty and most importantly.. cause no dents/damage/crease to your hair!!!

20130921-022856.jpg

These are the 3 colors I received. basic black and white and a sweet pink that comes with a bling bling!

20130921-022916.jpg

Next, shampoo & conditioner. I assume I don’t have to introduce this again.. I had received them so many time and i’ll sound like an old lady if I intro them again (like a spoil radio that keeps on repeating!)

Summary, it’s the scent that will keep me wanting to use it.. 😉

20130921-022923.jpg

VEET! Hair removal cream… erm, not very useful for me as i don’t really have much hair to remove and if I really need to, I usually go to the experts.. LOL! Pampered me~

20130921-022929.jpg

I had this from one of my beauty box! It looks/sounds really good but i have not used it yet because the thot of having to wash away the mask makes me lazy~ hahaha

You can read up my previous post HERE for more details about this mask pack! C’mon, don be lazy.. (LOL!!)

20130921-022935.jpg

Next next… something from Adonis.. I never expect to see Adonis product in my trove..

Herbal Peel Gel – Mild exfoliator

Using a variety of Herbs and seven types of natural eco-friendly ingredients, this mask delivers serious brightening, glowing results. The dead skin on the surface of your face accumulates over time, causing a dull, gray complexion. Only with exfoliation can you remove this skin to reveal the soft, new skin underneath, revealing its natural lightness.

Herbal Peel Gel exfoliates gently and expertly, providing a bright skin tone, replenishing your youthful complexion and removing unsightly dead skin.

How to use? Apply a thin, comprehensive layer of the mask on your face, avoiding eye area. Leave on initially for one minute, then spread and massage it into your skin in circular motions. Rinse off with clear water and apply moisturiser and SPF right after.

Dermatox – Anti-toxin

Dermatox provides intensive purification for congested pores. Over time dirt, oil and dead skin can clog pores leading to breakouts, blemishes, even scarring. Prevent and treat your blemishes with Dermatox.

This amazing product will let you know in two ways that it’s properly working: The first is by releasing a strong smell indicating the level of toxicity in your pores that’s being released. With regular use, the smell lessens, proving that there is less toxicity. The second way you’ll know it’s working is by the compliments you’ll receive on your improved, radiant, clear complexion.

How to use? Spray Dermatox onto cleansed skin. Leave on for 5 to 10 minutes and rinse with cleanser. For best results, rinse with Adonis Cleanser.

20130921-022942.jpg

Justin Bieber roll-on Eau de Toilette .. I’m not a Bieber fans… but this lil nothing smell ok to me!

20130921-022949.jpg

It’s pretty convenient to bring around! Just one thing about it.. The scent ain’t that lasting as compared to my other perfume.. and the roller isn’t very smooth. Not much perfume “rolled” out when I apply it.. 😦

20130921-022955.jpg

Ok, now for something that I like again… Dr.Ci:Labo! Again, I’m gonna do it the lazy way! hahaha… click HERE to view more details about it!

20130921-023005.jpg

Last but not least… A very powerful sunblock!! SPF70!! Hell madness! hahahah! Armada Sport 70 is by VMV Hypoallergenics!

If you spend lots of time outdoors, and want a very lightweight, high performance cream, this sunblock is for you! Extreme protection for extreme outdoor conditions. It’s ultra lightweight and very water resistant.

Impressive PFAs are combined with SPFs as high as 70-90 to effectively screen out UVA and UVB rays for active protection against sun-induced skin cancer, photoaging and hyperpigmentation.

Defensive-line formula creates a unique “barrier-film,” an invisible virtual “second skin,” that stays on skin’s surface to maintain protection integrity in and out of water, and while exposed to harsh sun and heat. Soft, skin-coating silicones give this barrier-film an exceptionally smooth glide and keep it light, so skin stays comfortable.

To Use:

Shake well before use. Apply liberally on face and body skin, carefully avoiding membranous areas of eyes and nostrils. For best results, apply 30 to 60 minutes prior to sun exposure, especially before highly active sports. When outdoors, reapply at least every 1 to 2 hours, after swimming or sweating and after towel drying.

Well, that’s all for my gift box! It’s a quick post because most of the item here are either repeated products or I haven’t use thus not much to share.. All I can say now is… Stay tune for the next box.. I think it’s coming in 2 weeks time…. 😀

Pardon any error/typo you see here.. I’m too tired to proofread yet wana quickly share this with you! Shall make amendments again!

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.

CLIO – Dark Blue

Ta-daaaa~~ here’s my Lucky Win from Bellabox & Clio!! A glittery gel pencil in dark blueeee…! I wasn’t aware its a glitter liner when i won it until i see it myself~~ at that moment, i was like.. “oh! lucky i got a blue one!”

This gel pencil eye liner has a sharpener at the other end of the pencil.. but… hmm.. i wouldn’t say its a sharpener.. it looks more like a retractable pencil.. turn turn turn it comes out, turn turn turn the other way & it goes back in. The tip doesn’t get sharpened when you turn it so can’t really say is a sharpener, isn’t it?? *raise brow*

(update the very next morning: ah har!! How dumb! It indeed is a sharpener.. Juz that u need to pull it out hard.. Lol! It’s juz a small sharpener, can be handy can be useless. U need sharp ur pencil w extra care else u will break the lead like I do… Hahaha! Clumsy morning!!)

Anyway, below are some pic i took while wearing my Clio liner… Some with flash and some without, so that you can visualise the blue glittery gel eyeliner…

20120724-222639.jpg20120724-222629.jpg

Above pics are with flash and from there u can see that the blue is almost navy-like blue with blue shimmers.. To be honest, it’s quite “flakie” because as i draw my upper eyeliner, there’s always “minor-residue” lying around somewhere near my lower eye end. It’s like the shimmer has “dropped off”.. but still ok to me as it’s quite easy to brush them off..!

Other than that, applicable is very smooth! (At least to mi it is smooth.)

Below are some pics without flash..

20120724-222708.jpg

20120724-222717.jpg

Now you can see that they are actually not that blue-ish! In fact it’s a bit of blacken/dark grey-ish blue and the blue shimmers are not that obvious too.. If you were to ask mi, I will say that this is actually quite suitable for my work days as well!! It doesn’t makes me look too overly done yet it’s something different/special! I like it this way!

A side note: I went to Junction 8 Watson’s the other day wanted to get a CLIO black eyeliner (gel pencil) but later realise they do not have black (without glitters) gel pencil – its only black with gold glitter gelpresso.. quite sad but i’m still very satisfied with my new blue eyeliner!!

Happy Winner!

SKII from VanityTrove & BellaBox

This is the SKII Facial Treatment that i had rec’d in my July VanityTrove & July BellaBox.. are they spoiling us with choices?? >_<

On the left is from VT, a slightly bigger sample (20g) and on the right is from BB which is only 6g, good for 4-5 use i think??

and i wana say.. the smell of SKII reminds mi of…………………….

Hazeline Snow Moisturizing Cream.. 😀 and this, reminds me of my granny!

and next, u can see here is the Clear Lotion 20ml from VT and Essence 10ml from BB.

Of cuz essence is better but.. oh well.. lotion is good enuff for me too..

So now you tell me which is better?? hard to judge ya?? >_<

July Bellabox – Around The World

20120714-231013.jpg

Yahoooo!! Got my July Bellabox just bef the week ends..! Happy!! Happy!!!
So what do we have here for July??

20120714-231211.jpg

20120714-231232.jpg

Seems like a pretty heavy box right?? Totally excited for this! Now let start looking into the simple one first..! ^_^

20120714-232655.jpg

20120714-232707.jpg

Twistband!! If u haven heard of twistband then u are (slightly) outdated thn me!!! I got to know Twistband from Bellabox in Q2 this year!! It’s actually a hair band that u can use to tie ur hair without leaving tie mark! And they comes in colorful colours….!

Just a bit sad that my twistband had a little defect. But the thot of contacting Bellabox for an exchange made mi… (think twice) accept how it is! To email them is a headache! I wonder all this beauty boxes company.. Are they really sooo busy? Din they put into consideration for time like this? Ok, or at least not for exchange but more of.. customer service/enquiries? Every time when they are gg to have something big, reply seems to slow down even more (already so slow then become even slower..)

Had tried calling them to enquire some stuff but was asked to email them instead. But their reply always take sooo… sigh~

Ok I think I drift tooo much! Back to twistband! You can grab yours at Bellabox e-store HERE!

20120714-233427.jpg

Next, Jimmy Choo lil perfume (4.5ml)! Like that cute little granite-like bottle! Smell great too! But if I were to buy it at its full size I would think that they’re a bit on the costly side.. I’ll stick to my bvlgari! Hahaha!

PRICE? … 40/60/100ml for S$78/125/165

20120715-000610.jpg

Next next!! Skinmiso nose pack!! It’s a 2 step pore care that will remove blackheads and whiteheads! Looks interesting ya!!? I think I’ll try this out tmr??

PRICE? …10 sheets plus essence(15ml) for US$21.99

Review on 15 July evening:

20120715-195637.jpg

Wow.. This is not wat I expect yet not too different from what I expect too..

I expect something like Bioré pore pack? But looking at it’s packing I had expected it not to be like wat i expected! (gossh, am i confusing u??)

20120715-195650.jpg

As per its direction, I apply it on my nose for 10 mins. Initially, I feel a bit pinchy pain, quite annoying but bearable. Abt few sec ltr the pain is gone.

When I peel out the sheet, I dun see any whitehead/blackhead residue on my nose.. I had also used the Q-tip to exfoliate but… Nothing come out.. At that point I thought this was pretty useless..

20120715-195658.jpg

But still I decided to continue w the step 2!! This pack’s essence more gelish as compared to step 1 (watery)..

20120715-195706.jpg

I dono if I shd even post this pic cuz it looks the same as the previous one! But oh well…

Step 2 still has that pinchy pain feeling too but din last long.

20120715-195718.jpg

So after I remove …. Mi first reaction was….. “WOW!!! No more large pores!!! Wah!!! Whr’s my blackheads!?!??” Hahahah!!!

Tho this doesn’t works like Bioré pore pack whr u can see ur blackheads being “pull” out.. But… My nose really is much cleaner now!!

If bearing w these pinchy pain can change a clean nose back, seriously… I DON’T MIND!! Hahaha!!

Now I’m really tempted to buy some home!!

20120715-000638.jpg

Yes.. I know what u’re thinking!! It’s SKII again! My third set of SKII since my July Vanity Trove! It’s either SKII is having a promo or both VT and BB a good deal with them! But doesn’t really matter, 好东西不嫌多!

This SKII comes in a smaller pack then VT’s one but it comes with 2 extra items.. Cellumination skin care..

• Facial Treatment Gentle Cleanser (6g)
• Cellumination Mask-in Lotion (10ml)
• Facial Treatment Essence (6g)
• Cellumination Deep Surge EX (2.5g)

20120715-001343.jpg

20120715-001351.jpg

I used the facial cleanser immediately since both (VT & BB) are like gvg out their products so hard!

It’s easy to lather into form but the form is not those very dense type like Ettusais.. But it does smells nice! Probably my skin is too thick? I dun feel anything special about it after washing.. It’s like “just another cleanser”..

20120715-001932.jpg

Aft cleanse, I used the cellumination mask-in lotion! Refreshing.. Nice scent too..

According to their tips, u can use it like a cool therapy (extra treatment on concerned area) too!

Read on and u’ll understand more..

20120715-002210.jpg

And last step is my cellumination deep surge ex!

20120715-002223.jpg

And here!! Seee!! I followed every step as provided in my box! Very useful instruction..! Mi like!!! ^_^

PRICE? …Facial Treatment Gentle Cleanser 120ml for S$89, Cellumination Mask-in Lotion 100ml forS$114, Facial Treatment Essence 75/150/215ml for S$99/168/209, Cellumination Deep Surge EX 50g for S$199

20120715-003449.jpg

L’egere skin conditioner (30ml).. Product of Korea.. Juz with the chinese instruction can’t help feeling like it’s fr Taiwan..
Haha!!

What can this skin conditioner do?? See below packaging! (sorry.. Feeling abit lazy tdy!! Oppsie!!)

20120715-003458.jpg

I duno about u but I always seems to mixed up L’egere and Laneige! Haha!

PRICE? …150ml for S$31.90

20120715-003509.jpg

L’egere Platinum Hologram Illuminating Hydro Cream Base (3ml).. Another L’egere product.. But this acts more like a makeup base I guess..

20120715-003613.jpg

20120715-003651.jpg

Pore tightening and oil control is enuff for me to grab a full size one!!

PRICE? …40ml for S$39.90

Review on 16 July:

ok it din show very well in this pic but the cream is in a bit pale purple-ish beige color! wah sound so.. hahahaha! but u have to visualise abit to be able to see the purple.. putting aside the color.. the cream contain shimmers.. i guess that is why it can create the radient look.

in this pic, u see my hand?? bling bling..! on my finger tip is Ettusais BB cream, ignore that! hahaha! im just putting on my daily makeup before heading to work!

Overall, i feel nth too special about it. but probably i just haven use long enuff..

Next is a… BONUS!!

20120715-171656.jpg

A housebrand sexy red lipstick!! Yayaya!!! I’m lying! Hahaha!
