MKUP Deep Pore Cleanser

FB advertisement are scary! Just a short 2 min video made me spend $64.80!

Not bad right??? Like so easy can!!

*finger clicking* ADDED TO CART!! LOL!!

Then another FB advertisement

Seriously.. they’re not like made expensive hence thought just give both a try…..

Today, i’ll just be sharing the review on Calendula Extract Deep Pore Cleansing Mousse!

Easy to use is definitely the first thing that comes into my mind! brush and cleanser all in one bottle. No need to lather any foam and just a push u’re ready to scrub scrub scrub!

After trying, I wouldn’t say this is the best pore cleanser I had tried. It didn’t remove as much pores as what the video shows.. Video’s a lil too extreme i think.. sigh, 广告都是骗人的..

Well at least i tried! If you would like to give it a try too, check out from Qoo10 (click image to be redirected)!

However, the Cloudy Deep Pore Cleansing Awakening Mask is another story!!! I will share that with you again in another post with more pictures!! That one is much better..!

A heaven for taiwan products lover! They bring innovative, novel & award winning Taiwanese beauty products closer to you!

Thanks to Samplestore, I get to try a few items from BeautyKeeper!!

The first thing that caught my attention is SLIMWAY (Organic) Essential Oil!

img_5048

Ever thought how to get rid of those wrinkled, saggy skin after weight lost?

This lil oil here is suppose to help you keep your skin firm, eliminate orange peel skin & regain skin elasticity as you slim down!! SLIM DOWN BEAUTIFULLY!

img_5049

It’s not only an essential oil, it helps you curb your appetite too!

I’m not too sure able the curb appetite part, but i enjoy the fragrance of the oil, it helps me sleep better at night!

HOW TO USE: Apply approximately 10 drops once in the morning, noon & night – massage! For extra strength, in the first 30 mins of use, apply 1 drop on the stomach & take deep breath for 1 min before you go to bed!

After you’ve taken care of your body, let’s care for our beautiful face!

Here we have MDMMD Wakeup Skin and Freeze Age Essence! By that name, I believe it’s not hard to tell it’s an anti aging product!

The products reminds me another brand where to essence is thick and can gives your those doink-doink feeling! I gave this to my mom to try, hence will let you know the review once i hear from her!!

Next up, the not very attractive packaging mask but I thought it was pretty good!

SEVYNAL – Brightening Firmimg Repair Mask is made with VICERAL which can be composed when buried in soil.

If you ask women,”What’s your dream?.” I believe 80% would say they want to stay forever young! If that’s you’re goal, then this is the right product that you’re looking for!

 

The mask is very fitting and it leaves a very smooth after effect when you’re done!

Last but not least! All Belle Falsie!

Looks decent.. but looking at the manufacturing date (4.5 years ago), I’m not sure if i will wear it out though.

img_5054

Overall, I think I still think BeautyKeeper is a decent platform where you can get Taiwan Beauty Products!! Head over to give it a try..

Nivea Extra Bright Make Up Clear (Micellar Water)

How long has it been since I last blogged about ANY beauty products? LOOONG time it is!

Well, today I’m back with a GOOD DEAL!!

Nivea’s Make Up Clear! If I’m not wrong, this should be their latest skincare range! However it’s not the “latest” that attract me!! It’s 13rushes cleansing brush that lure me into buying it!!!

Seriously, it doesn’t matter if you’re a light or heavy make-up person! As long as u do make-up (even if you don’t), I think this is a great kit to start your cleansing regime! For just S$18.90, Nivea has got you covered with Micellar Water + 3 in 1 Mud Cleanser !!

Best of all, every cleansing duo set comes with a FREE 13rushes Cleansing Brush (worth S$21)!! You think I’m kidding??

13rushes

See! A similar brush is retailing at US$15.22 (approximately S$21.01) on 13rushes website!! Probably the best cleansing deal in town!!!

 

Why buy when you can get it for free!!!?? Soft brush, very densely packed fine bristle! Doesn’t feel prickly at all!! Just touching it feel so shiok!! Totally worth it!!

Besides the brush, the next thing that got me into buying this set is the micellar water makeup remover!

I’m sure girls out there are totally good friends with micellar water!! It’s quick! It’s clean! It’s great for sensitive skin! &I’m sure you know which are the few brands that already have micellar water under their umbrella.. ie: Bioderma (a more atas brand as compared) and Biore (probably launched less than a year ago?)..

So is this comparable? Let’s ask our model~

img_8027

Here’s Miss Sexy.. She’s doll up using Rachel K’s BB cream and pressed powder, Canmake Blush, Revlon blue eye shadow, Marc Jacob waterproof liquid liner, Mac mascara & SK-II lipcolor.. I know.. She’s goddess!

So here I’ve covered half her face with cotton pad soaked with micellar water..

img_8030

Press and hold for about 3-5 seconds, and…. ta-daaaa…!!

img_8033 img_8034

I’m impressed! Quite clean with just one wipe!

img_8036 img_8035

After a few more wipes, totally good to jump into bed!!! Yes, one cotton pad for my hand’s makeup!

3 in 1 MUD Cleanser sure got me curious! Does it works like a mask or cleanser?

So now you understand? Indeed it’s both a mask and a cleanser and of course a makeup remover!

3 Effects in 1 Use:

  1. Apply as Mud Mask Absorbs make up & unclogs pores
  2. At the touch of water, massage as make up remover Removes 10 types of makeup*
  3. Cleanses as foam with whitening effect Removes impurities from deep pores for 10x fairer, water-like looking skin
  4. *Oil, talc, colorants, silicone, sun filter, dirt, fragrance, minerals, alcohol, chemicals

img_8083 

Now if you wanna grab a set too (doesn’t matter for the brush or for the great deal), just head to major retailers islandwide, while stocks last!! I got mine from Changi Airport terminal 3’s Watsons!

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!!

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 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!!

Qoo10 Cocomo

My blog readers will know that I hardly recommend any seller from Qoo10 on my blog. Not that they’re no good. It’s just that there’s nothing special worth promoting for them.

However, today I will be sharing with you one of my favourite seller and the things they sell are definitely worth mentioning!!

DISCLAIMER FIRST!! This is NOT a sponsored post! I used my hard earn money to purchase each and every one of them!

COCOMO

IMG_6926These are the products which I had bought so far… I didn’t buy at one go of course!! they are being brought home over a period of time..

I will not be drilling in depth into every product but more of showing you what I’ve bought from them!

I remember the first product I bought from COCOMO is ETTANG Rubber Mask!

I’ve tried both old and new version!! Equally good but new version is better in the sense that they look more attractive and comes with a safety seal!

IMG_5265IMG_5264I did a post in May 2015 sharing my experience in using this rubber mask! If you’re keen to try this rubber mask, do give it a read by clicking HERE!

Well, I have not use the GOLD MASK yet so no comments on that! But but.. I read a lot of good review about it..!! Probably I should use it soon!!!

Next product from COCOMO that caught my attention is BERRISOM LIP TINT PACK! Don’t think I have written any post about it yet but had briefly share the goodness on my lip stash post! 

IMG_6927 IMG_6928

I bought 3 colors (separate purchase) and among all I think I like Vivid Scarlet best!

**BTW, if you’re wondering why my hand look so FAIR, it’s Oseque High-end Touch Foundation! It’s a lil too fair for me so i will not be sharing much on that!

IMG_4423 IMG_4426 IMG_4428 It’s bright and highly pigmented! You can check out my review of this HERE & HERE!

Next up is another HAPPY PURCHASE!! SON&PARK LIP CRAYON!
IMG_6910Out of so many nice color why did I purchase one that has NO COLOR!!? It’s not for no reason okay~ This was one of the most recommended color – natural yet sweet looking!

And…. Sugar Tint is Jeon Ji Hyun’s HOT PICK!

jeonjihyun

I was still worried that the “color” will not show on my lips but… SEEE!!!!

IMG_6985

left: with sugar tint     |  right: without sugar tint

Can see the difference right!!!!

IMG_6986 IMG_6987

I thought this was pretty awesome and totally worth the price!!! The sweet rose scent is mild and soothing! Application is smooth and not sticky at all.

Lips looks so kissable and soft now!! Definitely recommending this to girls who like natural makeup and wana heal dry lips!

 

SELF COLLECTION @ NOVENA MEDICAL CENTER
IMG_6875If you opt for the FREE self-collection, don’t worry of getting lost or no public transport bringing you there! I collected most of my COCOMO products from Novena Medical Center! Hassle-free and friendly staff!!

Ettang Rubber Mask

rubber duck

NO.. Not Rubber Duck~! It’s Rubber Mask!!

Today, I’m gonna show you a mask that we can hardly find in any personal store in the market!! It’s… *drumroll*

RUBBER MASK!

Usually, when you go for a facial, what do you enjoy most? For me, I enjoy the accu-point face massage and mask session the most. However, the mask have to be rubber mask – warm one even better! I don’t like salon using sheet mask, it’s like I paid for a facial and you’re only using a mask I can buy from personal care store!? I can do this at home man!

Oh but wait!!! Looks like we can do rubber mask at home now – if you don’t mind the slight messiness~

While window shopping on Qoo10 some time back, I saw this interesting thumbnail and decided to “walk” into the store and see what are they selling!!

Disclaimer: this is not image I saw the other time.. They had repackaged hence image is now different

cocomo

 

WOW!!

IMG_4603

RUBBER MASK wor!!! I really wonder are these the kinda rubber mask that salon used?? Seems so cheap to be true leh!!

IMG_4609

Curiosity kills a cat. I bought 3 to try out!! As I didn’t prepare to do a post on this previously, I did not take any pictures!! All I know is that, it’s good!! that’s why I bought another 8 when I saw it on promo again!! This time in the new packaging!! If you buy eight, it comes in this cute take-out box.

IMG_5274

 

And here’s my 8 packs!!

IMG_5264 IMG_5265

But before I show you more.. Perhaps I should share with you the flavours they have and each of the benefits/effects!!

IMG_4604 IMG_4605IMG_4606

It comes in 10 different awesome flavours! (So weird to say “flavour” here because this ain’t food! :?) and not forgetting, it has 3-free!

ettang

Most importantly, it’s not complicated to use! All you need is add water – normal tap water is good enough! No need to be warm or cold water.

IMG_4611

Pretty easy isn’t it? So this is how my mask looks like after mixing with water..

IMG_5279 IMG_5281 IMG_5282 IMG_5283 IMG_5286 IMG_5287

I don’t know what they means by “put water 1/2 degree” so I just jolly well assume is just add water to fill half the container. Temperature of water? Like I said earlier, normal tap water temperature is fine.. 😀 Easy right!? No need to specially boil water and let it cool till “warm” temperature nor even have to chill your water.

However, do note that this mask gets cloggy easily so you have to be kinda fast to apply it onto your face before it gets dry/harden.. (like below~! T_T)

IMG_5298 IMG_5299

If you’re worried if the mask will smell weird because it’s RUBBER mask.. You don’t have to! It doesn’t have any weird rubber smell! All I can smell is mild peppermint, you won’t even realise if you didn’t pay any attention.

Now for the most unglam images of myself with my rubber mask…

IMG_5294

This is the texture of the mask for the first few minutes. I apply them pretty slowly & carefully so as not to drip on my shirt. Then I start to dilly-dally, snap pictures here and there and suddenly to my horror…. MY MASK IS DRYING UP!!

*PANIC*

IMG_5295

As you can seeeeeee… the mask  at bottom of my cheek turns out to be sooo rough!!!! Can hardly stay on my face because it has kinda dry up!! Argg…

IMG_5312

 

So here’s the whole look! When you have enough time to do it slowly, the mask looks smooth and nice.. then when it’s drying up and you realised don’t have enough time anymore, you just have to force it to stick onto your face – rough job!!

Better luck next time for apply my rubber mask!! Hpmf~! During the whole masking session, other than this lil hiccup, I quite enjoy the cooling effect it gives (it’s peppermint mask you see..)! Skin feels so relax, refreshing and hydrating!

About 15-20 mins later, you can just peel it off!! Clean and easy!

   
From above image, you can still see slight dampness on the (interior) of the mask.. 

 

On the exterior, it’s already dry…

Peeling off this mask is a piece of cake. It leaves no messy residue and your skin feels really smooth & supple after that! Aaaw, now I wana buy more!!

IMG_4607

If you had previously bought the old packaging mask before, you will know that the packaging kinda sucks. The mask powder gets all over the place if the lid is not closed properly!

IMG_5272 IMG_5271 IMG_5273

After the repackaging, all the mask now comes with a safety seal! No worries even when the lid open! 😉

IMG_5313

 

I would recommend this mask to all mask lovers!! Especially those who do not like wash-off kind!! It just take one time to fall in love with it!

Click HERE to go to COCOMO on Qoo10 directly!!

Seee ya!

 

 

OH.. that’s a.. mask??

Happy Labour Day!!! 五一劳动节快乐!!

How’s your holiday!? It sure feels good to wake up without an alarm clock, isn’t it!! 自然醒 很爽!

Since it’s a PH today, I shall share some interesting stuff.. You may have tried them before already but I still thought it’s good to share!! Don’t worry, it’s not gonna be a long post because I don’t have much image to share (I didn’t plan for this post..)!

mask (1)

So first .. How many have seen this mask in our local The Face Shop outlet..? I don’t really stepped into one so not surprised if I don’t see them.. I bought this on Qoo10 and thought it will be pretty fun to have a masking session with my mom, like role-play..

Roarrr~~~ 虎妈来了!

(eventually seems like I’m the only one enthusiastic about it.. -__-|| )

mask2

This character mask has a nice refreshing citrus scent.. It delivers rich moisture to dry flaky skin with hyaluronic acid & collagen! Formula without 4 additives – mineral oil, sulfate, talc, polyacrylamide)

It doesn’t matter which character you buy, the effect is all the same..

What I think? Other than the interest character, the effect is just.. meh~ Unless you are gonna have a character mask party with your friends, I think you can skip this..

Next up is something that caught me by surprise.. I didn’t expect to open a LACE mask~!! Yes, it’s LACEEEE~~~ (It’s actually written on the packaging but I just didn’t catch that..)

mask

Hey Pinkgo Girl is from Taiwan and from what I understand, this mask is either made from cotton (stretchable lace mask) or apply-pulp fibre (ultra thin mask). Of course I didn’t flew to Taiwan to get this.. I bought it in JB City Square Watson’s.. Bought it just to finish up all my Ringgit.. I didn’t really read what’s on the packaging (it’s all in chinese hence I only glance through to see what i want to see..) just saw that it’s some brightening mask and there it goes into my basket!

I must say I’m pretty impressed with Hey Pinkgo Girl Arbutin Brightening Lifting Lace Mask (Hey! 苹果肌女孩 熊果素美肌蕾丝拉提面膜)! I love mask that comes with that ear loop thingy! It will stay forever in place while i move around doing my chores.. this is probably the first mask that made me feel so sexy wearing it while doing chores!! LOL!!! Did the lifting works, I can’t tell seriously.. but it sure brightens my skin.. My big round face looks brighter and skin feel supple and smooth too!

mask3

It comes in many different effect to suit different skin condition.. whitening, hydrating, problem skin.. etc etc.. The one I used is the purple one (2nd row 3rd pcs)..

Will I buy again? YES I WILL and I think you should try it too!!

Do share with me if you have come across/tried any interesting and/or effective mask!! I would love to try them tooo!

世上没有丑女人,只有懒女人。(There is no ugly women, only lazy one..)

Bio-essence Hydra Tri-Action Aqua Droplet Sleeping

How’s everyone? Finally you’re hearing from me again.. I know.. I’ve been busy this few weeks T_T BUT! I can sense weekend coming!!!!

Today, I am sharing with you something that is good for lazy people like me!!! A SLEEPING MASK! I’m sure many of you ain’t stranger to sleeping mask.. More and more skincare brands are coming up with sleeping mask.. So what’s so special about the one I’m gonna talk about today? (In case you haven’t realize which brand my post is gonna be, check out my post title!!) Read on to find out…

Bio-essence Aqua Droplet Sleeping Beauty Mask is made with their unique Bio Aqua Crystal Technology. This technology forms a protective shield over the hydrating ingredients to prevent moisture loss before application. Upon application, this shield breaks away and big aqua droplets are formed. This ensures our skin gets hydrated with the freshest and most optimal amount of hydrating activity. The big aqua droplets are made up of superior hydrating ingredients of small molecular sizes which allow moisture and nutrients to be easily delivered to the deepest layers of skin, while the protective emollient film remains on the skin to lock in moisture for non-stop hydration.

<Seeee!! Water droplet form>

This is actually my second time using this mask! Still remember the first time when I’m introduced this sleeping mask, I’m totally blown off!! It’s so amazing seeing the gel becomes water droplet!!! I actually apply it again and again just to see it transform! LOL.. This is definitely a fun way to keep your skin hydrated and nourished!

If you didn’t know, hydrated skin will absorb “essence” better and will cause less problem.. For my case, if I have hydrated skin, my freckles may be lessen and I might be able to use whitening products more often (whitening product are drying to skin).. 😦

Absorption is pretty fast and it’s not oily at all.. I mean, is water even oily?? No right~? Skin feels smooth after application and not sticky at all.. Aww.. ❤

Suppleness? I think it’s pretty okay! However it doesn’t seems to be as amazing as the time when I first used them.. maybe I got used to it?? I don’t know… (?_?)
