Yes… Vanity Trove time again!

Attended VanityTrove X Decléor Special Members’ Only Event last month (one of the Tue i think) and was later been “gift-en” a chance to redeem a complimentary trove for myself, which I’ll be sharing with you what I had put in my trove shortly!

You can view some photos from Vanity Trove facebook page HERE – I did took some pictures of the event BUT I don’t know what happen, they are all gone! (T_T) OH!! & you know what? I think I saw another blogger too!! I’m not sure if it was her until i saw her blog post! Hee!!

So without further ado.. Here’s a quick look of what I had redeemed for myself!

IMG_6662

I’m pretty satisfied with what I had redeemed although not much choice was available..

IMG_6663

Yes, Decléor !! Hee.. After I attended the Decléor event, I thought i can probably try some of their other products (since the gift set they gave during the event may suit my mom more~ =X) Decléor product are all pretty well scented! Aroma products for your skin.. Besides that, they are 100% pure, 100% natural, and without colorants or preservatives!

And i just found out from the their website, In 2000, the adventure broadened with the arrival of the Shiseido Group which allowed Decléor to develop its research and development base and to benefit from new sales markets, particularly in Asia.

So the set I had chosen for my trove is…..

Essential Cleansing Milk is a light and silky emulsion with Neroli Essential Oil (used in Hydra Floral) that promotes hydration. It softens and soothes thanks to Sweet Almond Oil. Its fresh and sparkling fragrance awakens the senses.

All you have to do is just use a dampened cotton pad, gently massage the milk over the eyes and neck and then the rest of the face using light circular movements. Apply pressure to the smile dimples (under the cheekbones) for ten seconds. Then apply Essential Toning Lotion

Essential Tonifying Lotion is a lotion with Neroli Essential Oil completes make-up removal, removes any traces of the milk and prevents the skin from drying out.

After your Essential Cleansing Milk, just apply this lotion all over the face using a dampened cotton pad. Absorb any excess product with a paper tissue if necessary.

IMG_6665

Next item from Decléor is this Revitalizing Eye Mask! Imaging using this together with a eye massage.. Wow.. Pampering!

If you wanna find out more about Decléor , visit their website now! They have massage techniques available for you to view/learn as well!!

IMG_6666

The next next next item??? The Enavose Black Tea Quench Mask!! The ultimate hydration haven for thirsty and dehydrated skins, our quenching mask uses Sweet Black Tea to release a profusion of moisture and vitality that deeply replenishes skin’s moisture. It harnesses the power of skin to retain higher levels of water, leaving it feeling velvety soft, incredibly supple and invigorated. Feel the surge of immense moisture and be better equipped to defend against damaging environmental forces.

This mask really works like magic! It can really quench your skin’s thirst! Chill it in your fridge and use them when they’re cool.. WOOOOO~! Chill and relax and HYDRATING!!! This is one of the wash off mask where you can feel/see the hydrating effect almost immediately after you wash it off!! *thumbs up*

IMG_6664

OK! Now.. this is one of the product I can’t wait to try out!! Cheonsoo Nail Lacquer!! To be exact, it’s scented nail lacquer! The scent ain’t very strong (as compared to Cirque’s Lavender scent) but the lightly scented polish can cover the typical lacquer smell which some girls doesn’t like!

Not only the scent is nice, another nice about it is.. the broad brush! The broad brush makes application so easy! That’s not all eh.. the opaque color really save my time on doing a second coat! I’m not too sure how many colors it has but I really love this color (340) I got here!!

IMG_6691 IMG_6693

Nice right? Hi-shine maroon! Very mysterious red you see here is just ONE coat (one thick coat tho.. LOL) If you like A-England’s Perceval I bet you’ll like this! It’s a darker version of it! ❤ ❤

IMG_6669

Alright! Next is another pampering product! Coenzyme Q10 silk mask from Storyderm! Contain Coenzyme Q10, Vitamin E fluid (which is the elasticity ingredient of skin), and Licorice Extract energizes skin which has become weak because of harmful things and stress. Restore skin elasticity and skin moisture.

If you have realize… there’s spelling error on the pack (*misturizing??). I wonder if this is a rejected goods.. hmm….

IMG_6668

Alright, I know you’ve seen this ample time!!! I redeemed this hair oil almost every chance I have! hahaha! Why? Because this is really good! DO a quick search on my blog and you will be able to see all posts on “Kerastase“!

IMG_6667

Last but not least… a MINIATURE eyeliner from Déjavu! Hahaha! It’s really MINI! But it’s a decent size to try it out! I have not try this yet but will share my thoughts soon! 🙂

Seee! So many items this month! First thing that caught my attention is….. *drumroll*

20130921-022249.jpg

 

THIS! JJOYY Bubble Peeling Pad! I had never seen this! Have you… ? I went to do a web search per the website provided and realise.. this might be another good stuff I will fall in love with!

J1

Since the skin cells around the skin are soft tissue, if roughly treated it will cause trouble in stimulation. But it needs to be removed in 28-days period cycle to prevent dead skin cells being clogged up on the surface of the skin. If clogged, it will cause darkening and dehydration, which leads to wrinkled and dried skin!

J2 J3 J4 J5 J6 J7

 

Oh did I mention? This exfoliating pad can be reuse up to 3 times after first use. Just have to hang it in your bathroom when your done with it. Saw from some site that this pad can be used on other area where dead skin cells can be found.. ie: heels? elbow?

Amazing product ya? Let me try it tomorrow and I’ll tell u how I feel about it!

20130921-022307.jpg

 

Next, facial scrub from LA CLINICA FOR SKIN & BODY!

LA CLINICA FOR SKIN & BODY is a 100% Australian owned and operated family business established by Ms. Rita-Marie Hopfner in 1995. LA CLINICA is a cosmeceutical skin care line with a focus on visible results, efficacy, safety and organic ingredients. Its luxurious, high performance products cater to all skin types and conditions. The range was created to treat skin problems without the side-effects that can result from harsh ingredients that may create secondary skin problems, sometimes worse than the original condition.

This facial scrub uses the same exfoliating particles as a micro-dermabrasion machine. The formulation is enhanced with glycolic acid and vitamin C, suitable in a skin whitening regime. Exfoliation removes dead skin cells to allow your moisturisers and other skin care products to penetrate and work more effectively. Regular exfoliation is vital in preventing skin from looking dull, dry, scaly and lifeless. Regular use of this scrub will help you achieve a smooth, refined and radiant complexion.

This product contains active ingredients:

Glycolic Acid – Smoothes and rebalances the complexion by promoting the exfoliation of dead skin cells and unclogging blocked pores. Outer layers of the skin are gently peeled away to reveal refined, fresher, younger looking skin for a more radiant appearance. Considered to be the most effective and suitable fruit acid for skin treatment products. Naturally derived from sugar cane.

Vitamin C – Reduces inflammation & photoageing via its powerful anti-oxidant activity. Strengthens skin conditions to help repair and rejuvenate the skin.

White Brilliant Complex – Possesses multiple tyrosinase inhibitors to block the overproduction of pigmentation and regulate further pigmentation production whilst brightening the complexion. Exclusive to LA CLINICA FOR SKIN & BODY.

After cleansing and toning, apply this scrub onto wet skin, avoiding eye area. Lightly massage with fingertips using small circular motion. Continue for up to 2 minutes. Rinse off thoroughly with warm water and LA CLINICA facial cloth. Follow with GLY C REFINE Skin Refining Facial Mask. If you are having GLY C REFINE professional peels at a salon, exfoliate 48 hours after salon peel and use Skin Refining Mask 96 hours after salon peel.

Recoliv is the all-natural collagen product formulated with the most potent antioxidants found in olives and grapes. The collagen found in recoliv can slow down processes that impair your skin’s metabolism, thus improving skin elasticity and firmness.

1.Optimized collagen for your skin

With new German technology, the collagen has undergone a special enzymatic treatment to produce specific bioactive collagen peptides which optimizes the stimulation of fibroblasts in the skin. Having an extremely low molecular weight of 2 kDaltons, it is easily absorbed and delivered directly into the dermis, which systematically increases collagen production.

2.Optimized antioxidants for your skin

The olive and grape extracts provide a unique “total” profile of red wine and olive polyphenols with standardized content of hydroxytyrosol and tyrosol. Special extraction and purification processes have been developed to preserve the characteristics of grapes and olives, ensuring the total profile of polyphenolic compounds is retained to yield maximum benefits for your skin.

20130921-022543.jpg

Benefits:

“recoliv” possesses antioxidant activity that is:

  • 2 X more than Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10)
  • 6 X more than catechin (found in green tea and berries)
  • 10 X more than lycopene (found in tomatoes)
  • Improves skin elasticity, increase moisture retention in skin and reduce wrinkles
  • Brightens and evens skin tone
  • Olive extract can enhance protection from UV damage
  • Antioxidant activity greater than green tea and berries
  • High ORAC value (measurement of antioxidant activity) per sachet
  • Sugar and fat free

I think i should try it soooon! Wonder its “grape flavour” is it nice!! 😀 geeez!

20130921-022549.jpg

Indulge your lips with our lush, creamy cane sugar lip scrub. Whipped up and blended with luxurious shea butter and nourishing oils, this lip polish will leave your lips feeling smooth, soft & supple! Enjoy a sweet blend of Vanilla cream blended with real coffee grounds.

All you have to do is scoop out a small amount then gently massage in circular motion with your ring finger on your lips for 30 seconds and Voila! You are left with a gorgeous kissable pout!

Tip: Let the lip polish sit on your lips for a minute to soak in the nourishing Shea butter and Coconut oil. Wipe away with a soft damp wash cloth.

I tried it last night.. the Vanilla scent was SO STRONG!! It was similarly like a lip mask.. not too bad.. Only thing is… I find it too sweet (the scent)!

…. Hang on! Don’t go yet! I believe I have not tell you this…..

20130921-022256.jpg

This month’s bonus item is…………. Dr. Morita’s EYE MASK! Yeah!! My pampering masking session starts NOW!!

So, that’s all for now! I’ll be doing my Bellabox special gift box soon! Getting sleepy~ Z_Z

 

LOVEMORE Promotion!

Irresistable is the only word that came outta my mind when i saw this offer at BHG Bishan!!! LOVEMORE mask are selling at 2 boxes for S$10!!!! Crazy sales, OF COURSE I bougtht them!!

You know, even on secretive website did not have such good price!!! Original price is S$11.90! Yes, you are not reading wrongly! It’s S$11.90 PER box! NOW, you’re getting 2 boxes and only at S$10!! WHY NOT?? (T_T so sad that i bought the snow fungus online already and been 2 weeks (??) I still have not rec’d my mask!!!)

So which one did I bought?

20130921-002509.jpg

*jiang-jiang~!*

I’m not kidding right! even the price tag says “2FOR$10.00”!!

20130921-002542.jpg

So here’s Black Pearls True White Mask!! I’ll skip the intro, most details can be found on the box!

20130921-002556.jpg

20130921-002603.jpg

Both mandarin & english version available for you to read..

20130921-002742.jpg

And this is Rhodiola Antioxidant & Brightening Mask! Just what i need this week! Antioxidant!20130921-002757.jpg

20130921-002805.jpg

A few things that they made you buy with assurance is their packaging..

20130921-002855.jpg

They printed “Natural Silk Sheet” on the box…

20130921-002902.jpg

They show you the difference between normal mask and their mask! Just by the look, you know the mask will be super fit to your face! no worry that it will drop or maybe even some part not absorbing the essence..

20130921-002912.jpg

Most importantly, the sticker for prove of originality! Buy at ease!!

So without further waiting, here’s my masking process….! I’m using the antioxidant mask first!! Like I said, I need to very much this week!

20130921-002936.jpg

See the two protective sheet? This made opening the mask easier and less messy! Having 2 protective sheet like this reduced the chances of me tearing my mask when i open them up to leave on my face!!

20130921-002942.jpg

So after you remove the white plastic sheet, you can put them on your face like what I did…….. BUT (read words in pic!)!

20130921-005338.jpg

20130921-005344.jpg

Yup, you still have to remove the blue sheet remember…? Remove them slowly so that you will pull off your silk mask…

20130921-005349.jpg

And now…. rest for 15-20 minutes!

Something about this mask I find it good is that, you can barely see them! Thus won’t be too scary walking around.. At least, my dad didn’t realised that I’m masking when he talked to me.. LOL!

So what about it that I don’t like? Probably the amount of essence in each pack? I didn’t mean that I want to see overflowing essence but the essence in this mask is too .. erm.. feels like you’ll never have excess for neck massage… =X but nonetheless, it’s definitely sufficient for normal use!

20130921-005359.jpg

See.. this is two protective sheet that we had removed earlier.. remember… ?

OH and… just a side note! Below is the LOVEMORE eye mask that I had won from Secretive.sg Giveaway!

20130921-011433.jpg

Call me CATWOMAN~ Meow~!

*sorry for the “very-natural-home-look”!!

“Last” Vanity Trove

Yo yo yo yo~~~ GOOD MORNING everybody! It’s really early now – like 5am?? Hahaha..! By the time I finish writing this post it should be….. 9am already! Anyway, that doesn’t matter… Today I’m gonna share with you what I rec’d in my last Vanity Trove!

Unknowingly I had subscribed VT for a year plus.. Wow how time flies! They have been introducing many new product to me and never fails to surprise mi (in good and bad way. Lol..)

But after they changed their concept, I feel that the surprise is not there anymore and $25 for samples sounds really expensive now.. 😦 none the least, I’ve made it all worthwhile in this trove!
20130809-052511.jpg
Seee!! These are the items I had selected! They arrived in the morning via Ta-Q-Bin courier just before I head out for my long weekend staycation!! Yahoooo!
20130809-052727.jpg
This is the Go60 mask that I had tried in previous trove and I find it AMAZING!!! It made my skin ultra smooth and ultimate hydrating!! I feel so wonderful after using it! The smoothness it give is by far the best among all the mask I had use!!! I can’t find much product details online yet but seriously I think u should really try this too if you have the chance!! This is one mask you cannot missed!! Read HERE for more info from my previous post!
20130809-053039.jpg
20130809-053046.jpg
It’s so good that I even clicked to get for other type of Go60 mask!!! It’s definitely not a waste of credit to get these mask!! *thumbs up*
20130809-053328.jpg
Next up, makeup remover!!! Do you know why I’m so HAPPY to see my trove arrive before I head out for my staycation!? That is because, I can bring along my travel size makeup remover and no need to buy one from Watsons!

In my previous trove, I had rec’d Avancé remover before I find them very effective! It works over my expectation! The retail price is about S$28 something at BHG, little costly because the size ain’t very big not even sure if that bottle can last me a month.. 😦 BUT it’s really good you see… You can check out my previous post HERE for more information..

As for Silkygirl’s remover (I brought along for my staycation), I tried it last night and I feel it’s not as effective as Avancé or even Bioderm.. Yes, it does remove my makeup but I keep feeling its not clean enough because I dun see much “brown stain”(bb cream) on my cotton pad and not a lot of eyeliner found too.. Wonder is my face really clean..
20130809-054955.jpg
Guess what’s this!!? Hahaha… It’s sooo cute!!! Nope! Not eye shadow.. Nope! Not blush color.. Definitely not compact powder.. More guess??
20130809-055040.jpg
Did anyone say lip gloss??? Hahah!! Yes it is!! Comes in 3 color and they not only they look sweet they smell so sweet too!!! So regret I didn’t bring along for my staycation.. Awwww..
20130809-055328.jpg
20130809-061236.jpg
Next, mascara from Cyber Colors! If I’m not wrong Cyber Colors is exclusively available only at Sasa.. I’ve been using Cyber Colors blusher and they are quite within my expectation.. Only thing is there will be quite a fair bit of wastage as the powder is pretty loose.. I tried their mascara before (not this one) and they’re pretty good..So for this I’m quite sure they won’t fail me…

And.. My goodness, I didn’t expect it to come in full size.. LOLX! What a bargain!! HAHAHAHA….

Alright, now last but not least…
20130809-060433.jpg
The fruity tea that I mentioned before that I will show you in one of my post!! I seriously didn’t expect it here!!! Hahaha… This taste much better than kilo off tea!!!

Seriously, it’s sad to bid goodbye but… We must always move fwd! For the sake of my pocket, I have to stop what I have to stop.. Moreover, seems like there are more and more kinds of sample box being introduced and their selling point? They are FREEE!! But free stuff comes with cons.. The down side is that they are bi-monthly boxes and the products they give I believe won’t be comparable to VT (paying box).. But who cares as long as I get my surprise!!

Check out brandbox.sg and blackbox.sg to get your FREE box today!

Mask mask mask!

Good evening all!

Today is a very tiring day! Why? Because I had my team building today! It was fun seeing how the team play! Anyway, today’s post is not about my team building but…. *drumroll* my amazing mask!!!

20130722-171001.jpg
This mask is from Go60! I get to know about this mask through Vanity Trove! You can see my previous post HERE. Sorry that the brand ink had been washed off like this.. because my mini fridge is flooded with water and this baby was partially soaking in it.. 😦

20130722-171315.jpg
This is the amount of serum that is still available after I put on my mask! The mask is soaked thoroughly in the serum! Although u can’t see how good is this serum but.. Trust me(!), this mask is no kidding!

20130722-171244.jpg

(excuse my very messy hair!)

Look at the serum that keep flowing dw my neck! Ok, maybe it’s not very clear but trying looking at the light reflection! It’s the serum.. Keep wiping it off but keep flowing down! (At the end of my masking session, my crew neck collar is soaked with serum too! Hahah!)

20130722-171219.jpg
Another thing i like about this mask (other than the generous amount of serum) is the BIG sheet mask! This mask has a “neck section” for you to pamper your neck too! I have very thick broad neck so if u have slimmer neck, I think this mask can easily cover your whole neck!

If u ask me, I think I will go get this mask if I happen to come across it! Although 5 for $60 is a bit pricey but I think it’s pretty work it!!! good beauty investment!

Next up! Eye mask!!! Eye mask from Mr Morita! 20130723-212048.jpg

My first time using Dr. Morita’s mask and I’m quite satisfied with it. A pack of mask like this packed with generous amount of serum!!20130722-171423.jpg

See!! The serum is rolling down my cheek! After 15 min, I remove my mask & my eyes feel less tired and less puffy!20130723-212109.jpg

Well, comparing this two mask, I think I will definitely want to buy Go60 mask!! Tho the high price but the after effect is amazing!!

PS: pls pardon my seriously messy hair! I was home having some me-time and randomly decided to do a post like this. That’s why i ain’t prepared!! No time to doll up myself.. hahahaha!

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

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!!

20130707-000217.jpg

(“HUAT AH!!” they sounds really into this event!! Goood one!)

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

I had an awesome time at the sale! Every counter had a staff waiting to serve u and answer to all your questions! Staff will promote their products yet doesn’t hard sell – no stress! They know their product well too!

Did buying without stress cost me more damage?? YES it did!!! “Sale” plays a part – BIG part!!!

See what I’ve bring home!!

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! Plus it does not feel sticky too! *thumbs up up up* You can read up my previous post on Belif Product HERE!

Let me share with you the retail price first before i disclose the GREAT SALE PRICE i paid for!!

At Belif store: $57! Even after greatest discount, it still cost me $49!20130707-224945.jpg

At Beauty Carousal: $66.90!20130707-225924.jpg

And for how much did I grab this 2 bottles?? $59! Not 1 but 2! TWO(2) for $59!! It’s so unbelievable till I even asked the staff “why so cheap!!?” (I feel so dumb at that instant!)

But nevermind, since they don’t know me!! LOL.. let’s continue!

20130707-182554.jpg

K-Palette Real lasting Eyeliner and 1 Day Lash Perm Long Curl Mascara!!

Eyeliner first! This is a waterproof liquid liner that has won several awards!!

20130707-231056.jpg 20130707-231113.jpg

How can u not be tempted to get one?? Discount is not a lot for this.. $16 for 1 eyeliner (UP: $19.90)?

As my shopping bag gets heavier, my mind starts to get lighter…! I can’t think anymore!!! So just grab!!!

Next is this wonderful mascara! At this sale event, you can get it at $21 (UP: $25.90 I think) Yes, not very much good deal but still.. (like i said) at that moment I already lost my mind!! Everything is “sale! grab! sale! grab!” ROFL!

Update on 8 Jul: Images below shows the mascara I wear in the morning before heading to work!

(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!)

20130708-221209.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..

(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!!

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!!!!

Eye Mask

An eye mask that is reusable… Have u heard before?? I have not!! And I got a shock!

20121114-220043.jpg

This eye mask from Talika is reusable!

When u open up the pack, this eye mask is a dry mask. One side is cushiony texture and the other side that is suppose to be laid on your under eye is gel texture.

20121114-220101.jpg

When I first put on my eye mask my thought was like.. “And then…? Nothing special eh? Not even cooling effect (I took out from my fridge)..”

But! After 30mins when I remove them.. Wow! My eyes sure feel refresh and awake! The cool cool feeling after removing mask made mi feel amazing! I wonder if I can do this mask everyday???

But now my issue is … How do i keep my used eye mask? Geeez! Guess I’ll have to put in back into the pack and put back to fridge! Gossh!!

Recommendable? Let me try 2nd time and I’ll let u know!!! Hee!!
