After making my first purchase, I thought this was a pretty good concept for user to explore more local brands. Good local brands! Through Preloot, I actually get to know more local brands! I actually seen some brands before but wasn’t aware that they’re local brands – ie: Gummi! I thought they were from US or Europe.. (my gosh! How sua-ku!) & Bodhi too!!

Well…here’s my SECOND BOX (& THIRD BOX) to share.. Hope you like them too!

FLOWER2GRASS2 (花花草草)

IMG_6544

OH!! This is GOOD! I never thought local brand can be this good – especially the night cream!! But to be exact, this is not really a local brand though. Flower2Grass2 originated from Hong Kong and is new in Singapore! Best part, it’s paraben-, colorant- and sulphate-free!! Pssst~ Only available on Preloot – that’s exclusive!

IMG_6548

The night cream good for combination skin user (yes! finally something made for me!!)! Rose Geranium oil calms oily or irritated skin, such as eczema, acne & rashes. Skin appears radiant as a result. Hazelnut oil penetrates the outer layer of skin easily, leaving your skin silky smooth without any feeling of oiliness. Lavender oil is known for its anti-bacterial and anti-depressive characteristics; also rejuvenating skin by softening and lightening, an excellent solution to acne scars.

Covermark Moisture Veil Creamy Liquid Workshop – Part 2

Happy 2015 everyone!! Although I am 10 days late BUT(!) it’s the thought that count!!

Not forgetting, Happy SG50!!! Yes, this year is Singapore 50th Birthday tooooo!! 😀

sg50

Well, today’s post has got nothing to do with National Day nor fireworks. I’m here to continue my unfinished work… Do you remember I was sharing with you the Covermark Workshop I attended in early December? CAN’T!!? Nevermind, click HERE to read!

So after I got home, I quickly opened up my goodie bag and found myself a bag full of goodness!!

DSC03572

Basically, to summerize it all, we’ve got all we need for our daily skin care regime! From makeup remover to cleanser all the way to loose powder!!

DSC03619-1

DSC03574-1

They are very generous to give participants 3 days worth of sample sachet (toner, serum, moisturizer)!!

DSC03578-1  IMG_20141220_230959

 

Toner smells good and quite hydrating.. 1 sachet like this is more than enough for my whole face and don’t forget your neck!! Neck is one BIG factor that reveals your age!!

150ml – S$160

DSC03592-1 DSC03599-1

After toner, we should use serum. I thought serum should be translucent kinda texture but Covermark’s serum let me feels more like a moisturizer.. Again, don’t be stingy, 1 sachet for 1 usage..

40ml – S$210

I can’t tell you how much I love this Cell Advance collection.. They’re not only moisturizing, they can repair our mother cell and myeloid stem cells! In short, using Cell Advance collection for a period of time, you will notice an uplifting and radiance on your skin! Like glowing from within…!

DSC03606-1 DSC03608-1

Next is this moisturizer… This moisturizer is advisable to use only at night! You must be thinking WHY ONLY AT NIGHT!?

Let me tell you WHY……

Because………………..

DSC03611-1 DSC03612-1It’s super oily la!! My skin is shining like I’ve never seen before! This oily look will last quite a while.. But you know what, I’m not very bothered by it because it somehow doesn’t leave behind the oily sensation. Seems like it only look oily but doesn’t feel oily. I know I’m confusing you but.. If this is what is takes to have beautiful skin, I’m quite ok to use it every night..

Oiliness (shiny/glow, whatever you call it) aside, this moisturizer is pretty good! My skin feels tighten but not drying at all.. I wake up with skin looking healthy and no oily T-zone!!

30g – S$240

Now that we have cleanse and treat our skin, time for make up?? Yup!! There are sample sachets of the new Creamy Liquid Foundation and Loose Powder!!

DSC03616

See how thoughtful they are, although it’s only sample sachet, they include the makeup sponge for you toooo!!

Now in the blogger’s bag, we get 2 more extra items..

DSC03630-1

the full size Creamy Liquid Foundation (of our skin tone) and Loose Powder tooo!

And in case I did not mention in my previous post, did you know how much this little 25g foundation can last!!? 3 months? *shake head* 4 months?? *shake head*

5-6 MONTHS!!! You’re asking me why??? Because all we need is just a SMALL amount each time we use..

IMG_20141220_231156

Yup, just this size to give you that natural good skin look!! Need extra coverage? Just dap a lil bit more on them and viola~ You look awesome now!!

DSC03633-1

To finish the whole look, this loose powder is not something you wanna miss!! It adds radiant to your skin and make you looks flawless!!

Tried and tested, I’m looking awesome even after a long walk to my office under the hot sun!! Totally loving this new product!!

To recap the goodness of this product, check out my “BEFORE” look below….DSC03464

and “AFTER“….DSC03532

 

Sorry for the half drawn eyeshadow!! LOL…. My main focus is to share with you my face complexion.. Look so smooth right!!?

Best part, you never need to worry about oxidization!! Because as time goes by, you will only look more and more radiance!!!!

StyleXSanta Box

Merry Christmas everyone!!!

Today I’m gonna share with you my December Little Black Beauty Box – StyleXSanta Box!! But before that, pls note that LBBB subscription has been amended.. It’s no longer at $19.90 (or was it $19.99?). The new price is S$21.90.

Initially I thought it was because of the One Year Anniversary and Christmas season that’s why the box got more expensive.. You know more expensive some how relates to more premium products or something special for that box? Although the box that I had subscribed to so far (since the price increase) hasn’t disappoint me but I got it all wrong. LOLX! This price increase is not due to festive seasons. It’s permanent.

起价了啦! T_T

So with the price increase am I gonna still subscribe to LBBB? YESSS, of course!! It’s juz a $2 increase and I have yet to open up a box with disappointment! The quality is still there. The quantity too! (It’s still sad that good things no longer comes cheap!! Below $20 and more than $20 makes a big diff leh~ although its juz $2! Consumer mindset!!)

So what have I got myself this CHRISTMAS!??

20131225-145309.jpg

I was just praising LBBB and this is what I got for my StyleXSanta box?!??! *heartache*

Actually a second look ……………

20131225-145319.jpg

Not bad what!?!! Although the items come in SMALL SIZE but at least they’re not sample sachets and I have branded makeup products to play with!!!

To start off, let’s take a look at….
20131225-145345.jpg

Origins Plantscription Anti-aging Serum!

In just 4 weeks nature’s next generation power plant noticeably reduces wrinkle length & depth. Without the irritation. Visibly helps improve the vertical fret lines between your eyes and the stubborn furrows across your forehead. Youthful “bounce” is revived. Skin is clinically firmer, smoother and more lifted-looking. And with continued use, results improve. What will nature think of next.

Best of all, any skin type is suitable for this!

20131225-145359.jpg

Origins Make A Difference Plus + Rejuvenating Serum!

Help empower skin to rebound from ageing dehydration. Help restore youthful looking smoothness to reduce the appearance of fine, dry lines. This plant serum with rejuvenating Rose of Jericho, Trehalose and Sea Haricots helps keep skin happily hydrated. Skin looks and feels dewy, healthy and revitalized.

Guess what!? This is just right for me because it’s got combination dry skin! My type!

20131225-145407.jpg

SOMETHING my mom will loveee!! Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair! This is the star product of Estée Lauder, is it not??

Revolutionary technology! The power to change your skin – Every night!! This serum is a major innovation. For the first time, this breakthrough serum promotes a natural nighttime purification process—vital to younger-looking skin.

While you sleep, your skin goes through dramatic changes to repair the day’s damage.Two of the most important changes are purification and synchronization.

Purification: a natural nighttime repair process that helps remove cellular debris that can accelerate premature signs of aging.

Synchronization: a natural process that ensures cellular repair happens at exactly the right time.

Wake up to more beautiful skin – every day! Tested and proven. New Advanced Night Repair addresses all key signs of visible aging. Effective for every ethnicity.

  • Lines & wrinkles looks significantly reduced – More than 75% of women felt that their skin looked more youthful – in just 4 weeks.
  • Skin feels smoother, hydrated & stronger – 82% of women felt their skin was immediately hydrated.
  • See a radiant, more translucent & even toned look – 83% of women felt their skin looked healthier, fresher & more rested – in just 4 weeks.

After sharing so much, I now change my mind! Maybe I should keep this for myself!! If that’s not enough to make u feel WOW.. read on!

Lack of sleep – is it aging your skin too fast? New research says – IT IS! For the first time, a major independent research study shows lack of sleep can accelerate visible skin aging.

The Unprecedented Sleep Study: Estée Lauder commissioned a major independent sleep study in collaboration with University Hospitals Case Medical Center—a world-renowned center of excellence in dermatological research.

The Surprising Results: Lack of sleep can not only accelerate premature signs of skin aging, but affects skin’s natural repair processes. Clinical data shows that poor quality sleep is associated with:

  • Acceleration of fine lines.
  • Increased vulnerability to dryness and dehydration.
  • Uneven skintone.

I think i not only have to sleep more from now onwards, I gotta use this precious baby before I jump onto my bed too!

20131225-145416.jpg

Now for some eye opener!! M.A.C. Zoom Lash! Major drama. Lasts all day. Creamy, velvety formula builds density and conditions. Feels light, supple. Ultra-sculpted brush has three-sided fibres to embrace and separate each lash, hugging every curve. Coats in one stroke from root to tip. No smudging.

20131225-145445.jpg

Very packed bristle! I can already feel my lash is gonna be very dramatic!

Below are my lashes without any mascara!

20131225-145507.jpg

20131225-145516.jpg

I kinda like my lashes at times.. geez! >_< They’re very .. erm.. dense? LOL

So after applying the Zoom Lash below is how it looks like!

20131225-145527.jpg

20131225-145535.jpg

It’s more defined and looks darker!

20131225-145614.jpg

Not sure if it’s my imagination, it seems to have lengthened my lash a little!

20131225-145856.jpg

So the above pic with my eyes closed is a comparison for you to see “before/after” effect. Can you tell which has mascara on?

Ans: My left eye (which is the eye on the right that you’re looking at now). Kinda obvious~

20131225-145906.jpg

Another thing.. this mascara doesn’t feel very clumpy and its easy to achieve the volumized look. Use a lash curler before applying mascara so that your lashes will stay curled for a longer time..

I wore this mascara since noon till midnight (MERRY CHRISTMAS!) and it shows no sign of smudging! No gothic look at all~ hahah! Waterproof? OF COURSE!! Removing is not hard at all tooooo….

S$29 (approximately) for a mascara like this? WHY NOT!!

20131225-150007.jpg

Time to remove your makeup after party? Try this M.A.C. Pro Eye Makeup Remover!

A mega-effective remover that lifts off every look – from delicate to dramatic – without smudges, tears or aggression. Pro-quality, yet decidedly gentle; calms, hydrates and soothes skin with cucumber extract. Makeup can be immediately reapplied. A favourite of busy models. I forgot that I have this in my stash thus didn’t use it to remove my zoom lash when I got home! Darn! I will review this again (if I remember) when I start using it!

Done with the eye? Now let’s check out something for our lips!!

20131225-150128.jpg 20131225-150144.jpg

Lip Gloss from Bobby Brown! YOU KNOW WHAT, I am allergic to BB’s product! T_T oh man!! I will get rashes if I apply anything on my skin. My lips will feel mild numbness when I apply lip color on my lips.. The more you love the more you can’t get to use it.. *sobs* (I’m not trying to scare you.. oops!)

This color seems a bit shimmerish neutral/natural brown color. I thought it will make my lips look dark.. but…….

20131225-150159.jpg

It really look very natural on my lips!

*I’m risking my “life” to put this on just to show you the result okay!!* hee.. >_<

20131225-151409.jpg

20131225-151423.jpg

You can see my chapped lips looks fine after I applied the lip gloss! Totally good cover up! WAHAHAHAHA… too bad I’m allergic to BB! aww.. Don’t reminds me of that…

NEXT NEXT NEXT~~~

20131225-151529.jpg

Moisturizing Gel from Clinique for combination oily to oily skin types.

The oil-free moisture “drink” developed by Clinique’s dermatologists to maintain optimal moisture balance for skins comfortable in the cheeks but oily in the T-zone or oily all over. Oil-free formula softens, smooths, improves.

This comes in a travel size if you have noticed in the first two pic.. guess I can keep this for my upcoming getaway!

20131225-151446.jpg 20131225-151508.jpg

20131225-151515.jpg 20131225-151522.jpg

This cream is really solid cream.. hahaha… It’s not those light weight runny kinda moisturizer.. It’s more like Hazeline Snow cream kinda texture but better of course! Even it’s price is…. as HIGH-END as the product itself.. make a guess?? Or perhaps you already know.. 1oz for $155! 16.5oz for *drumroll* $1900!!

-faint- I must appreciate this 0.11oz I’ve got here..

20131225-151540.jpg

Next up is something I’ve been wanting to try. DKNY Be Delicious Skin, I call it “green apple”! One of my friend been using this since I don’t know went…

The scent is not as sour as green apple please! It’s a sophisticated blend of apples, exotic flowers and woods creates a fresh, juicy scent that can only be called delicious.

Now, save the best for last??? HAHAHA! Now, finally something for my beau to share!!

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!

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

This night capsule is good! A small capsule contain quite a lot of serum.. It feels oily on ur hand. but when u apply, the oil seems to form up a protecting layer on your face and slowly being absorbed and it became less oily and face feels smooth (but if u rub it hard, u can actually still feel the oil after some time) Seems like i can understand better the reason behind the price now.. worth it if you dun mind the price..

20130323-005845.jpg

20130323-005916.jpg

VT even include this ALL JAPANESES words booklet for us.. (like i know how to read!?) Lucky for those who can read but this booklet seems pretty useless to me and i would rather visit the web! hahaha..

Overall i think this is a pretty impressive trove, value aside! The more trove we get the more we understand that most item are sample pack and can easily be requested from the beauty counters, For eg: Dr.Ci:Labo products, it merely cost S$10~ due to the current promo. However, if there isn’t any promo, this whole trial set is worth about S$15! That’s almost half my Vanity Trove price! But to me, it’s the effort that they put in to recommend you new and probably effective products! Ask yourself, if VT din not throw in this products, will you go to (say) Dr.Ci:Labo counter to ask for every sample every month? At least i won’t.. LOL..

Hope you had enjoy reading.. ^_^ Will keep you guys posted if i started using any of the products here… oooh~~ excited!!
