Trulife Product Launch

After a hectic week (endless meetings), what do you wish for the most??? For me, I just wanna sit back, relax and think of nothing else!! … & seems like someone out there sense that I need to rejuvenate soon before I’m burn out!

Thanks to VanityTrove, I was invited to an exclusive Trulife new product launch event & get to enjoy a complimentary (customized) spa service by Willow Stream Spa last week!!

IMG_6371.JPG

Correct! Event is held at Willow Stream Spa, Fairmont Singapore – 几 atas 一下有没有 ! 😀

IMG_6372.JPG

Just look at the view… @_@ I assume it’s Raffles Hotel in front..

IMG_6374.JPG

Arrived pretty early actually.. 🙂 But before I go into more details of this event.. how many out there actually heard of Trulife (万代)? How about Poli Medical?

Trulife (万代) is actually another quality brand by Poli Medical Company Pte Ltd!

Loosely translated, “万代” means multi-generation in Chinese. TruLife is a trusted brand of nutritious health products and health foods, developed for the modern multi-generation family’s health needs..

TruLife is a contemporary health-care brand which aims to answer the health and lifestyle needs of today’s society. From the young adult who has just stepped out into the workforce, to the busy all-rounder mother who juggles multi commitments, to the active mature consumer into travel and leisure, everyone needs to keep their bodies in peak condition to enjoy life’s offerings. We understand that the today’s society thrives on convenience. With this in mind, our products have been developed and manufactured on this premise.

Through diligent observation and efforts into research and innovative product development, we develop products that contain a combination of herbal and western ingredients, producing optimal results for targeted body function.

Now you know? Well, at least NOW I KNOW… 😀

IMG_6380.JPG

At the entrance were all the event host.. Names that I can recall are Dylan Hu (Director of Poli Medical Company Pte Ltd), Debbie from Vanity Trove & staff from Asia PR werks. Friendly bunch of people who helped me with the registration when I got there.. 🙂

Well, being early means you gotta wait longer. T_T But good thing is that there are food to fill my stomach before it starts “rioting” in me..

IMG_6457.JPG

I must say, I definitely love their satay!! There were many who love the fish as well.. Infused water were served during the event.. It’s my first time trying infused water and I like it! (P.S.: I don’t consider restaurant “lemon” water as infused water ah pls!!) Maybe I can start finding some infused water recipe (will share with you guys in another post!!)

Now, can I go straight to the highlight for the day already?? I can’t wait to share it already!!!

So the product they’re launching is/are……… *drumroll* (make a guess??)

IMG_6383.JPG

Wah… Bird nest???

IMG_6384.JPG

NOPE NOPE!! Not Bird Nest (I wish it was~ LOL)! These bird nest are Trulife existing products. It’s suitable for pregnant women and after childbirth, infants, children and growing teenagers, elderly with poor digestion, people suffering from fatigue or weak digestion, people recovering from long bouts of illness. I will not elaborate more about this since it’s not our highlight of this post…

They’re launching…….HEALTH SHOT – supplement drink that helps you to REJUVENATE From Within!

IMG_6447.JPG IMG_6458.JPG

Yes, from the above picture on the right, you can see what they actually display on our tables – the product and its ingredient – 真用心!! At least I’m seeing “LIVE” ingredient then some googled images. This helps me understand the product better and the scent of these ingredient are still pretty strong, especially the prune!!

One thing to note before I go on further… With no added sugar, these supplement drinks are suitable for diabetic too!! *HURRAY*

IMG_6409.JPG

IMG_6410.JPG

Start of the event is actually to educate us about Trulife and it’s heartwarming to know that Trulife has been around for three generation already! Yup, Dylan is the 3rd gen & you can read more details about him HERE!

We were also given the opportunity to try the product while he explains & go through the slides.. (I believe not all supplement drinks are new launch.. read on to see what I mean..)

IMG_6435.JPG IMG_6454.JPG

TruLife Collagen Cell Renew ($56.60/box) with 15,000mg of pure Micro Marine Collagen Peptides is a tasty functional drink which targets fine lines, locks in moisture and brightens complexion to leave you with suppler, firmer skin. It has seen clinically proven results of a 50% increase in moisture loevel of the skin and a 13% decrease in UV spot area. Some may even see these result within 10 days of consuming this high potency concentration. Collagen Cell Renew also helps battle skin aging and whitens skin. Its impressive collagen level is complement by zinc and vitamins for overall health benefits.

TruLife Collagen Cell Renew uses only low molecular weight collagen peptides of deep sea fish origin ensuring that your body only absorbs the highest grade of collagen available today.

I believe this is the NEW launch product.. 🙂 It taste sweet but not horrendous kinda sweet. It’s acceptable! It’s a lil sour too but not to worry, the sweetness can cover that! Another thing you probably can’t see from the picture is that this drink is a lil thicker than water. It’s like some kinda thick syrup..

IMG_6434.JPG IMG_6456.JPG

Next up is TruLife Berry EyeHealth! This is something that’s already available on shelf before this event I believe..

Trulife Berry EyeHealth is a vital eye supplment specially formulated to help your eyes maintain clear eyesight, relieve eye fatigue, keep them bright and sparkling (You can’t neglect the window to your soul right!?) and target common problems such as cataract and symptoms of glaucoma.

Made from high concentration of billberry and wolfberry known for their restorative properties, these powerful antioxidants protect against free radical damage and nourish the eyes by giving them maximum nutrients.

This taste very yummy! Berries are yummy!! If you think berries gonna make this drink sour.. Nah~ you’re wrong! It’s still sweet!! Has a lil herbal scent but still acceptable!! This is not like the collagen drink so thick hence it’s very easy to drink~! ❤

IMG_6381.JPG

Next up, the Herbal System Detox is 10-day detox programs which helps your body in its digestive process and lessen oil absorption giving your body a clean and clear start you can feel.

IMG_6455.JPG

Do you wish you could enjoy your meals and not gain weight?? I’m not sure this can really help but it says that its a natural alternative to dieting that allows you to indulge your appetite and stay lean with less effort!!

Today’s modern lifestyle is riddled with stress. Impurities from the food we eat can also leave your body feeling unhealthy and weak. TruLife Herbal System Detox uses 6 Natural active ingredients (Green Tea, Folium Sennae, Herba Plantaginis, Lotus Leaf, Hawthorn Fruit, Cassia Seed) with Prune Extract and Vitamins to combat today’s life challenges – fast detoxification,Herbal System enhances digestive health and lessens oil absorption after meals!

Herbal System Detox also improves kidney and liver functions, helps stimulate regular bowel movement to prevent toxin accumulation and increases metabolism!

This has the worst scent/fragrance/smell (whatever you call it!!) among the them… Doesn’t look very tasty already. Smells so bitter (herbal) somemore, not even a bit of sweetness! T_T.. Just looking at the color of it I’m so hesitate to try.

To drink or not to drink.. To drink or not to drink… To drink or not to drink… (O_o)

…. Bravely, I gulp it down..!

I mentioned earlier that no added sugar right? So what kinda taste are you expecting?? Bitter? Sour? Horrible till no words can describe??

Actually it’s sweet more than bitter. In fact, after trying, I wouldn’t even say it’s bitter..! It smell and taste totally different. Texture wise, it’s not as thick as the Collagen Cell Renew so it’s actually pretty ok for me.. But I think to finish all 10 bottles continuously I will need some motivation.. LOL!!

IMG_6421.JPG

IMG_6422.JPG

IMG_6423.JPG

After the tasting session, we were also being briefed/educated by Yingjie (holding a TCM degree!) the importance of Ying & Yang in our body.. It was a pretty interesting session!! Did you know that too much of either one is not good for your body. Balance is the key word!

After all the talking.. we were being lead to our massage room to enjoy our customised serviced by Willow Stream Spa!!

From below pic I’m sure u can tell which massage I opt for..

 

IMG_6426.JPG

IMG_6427.JPG

IMG_6428

 

Foot Detox!! It was really GOOOOD!! I even fell asleep half way….. Zzzz…

After the session, we all head back to the seminar room for a closing and you know what, we were all being given a goodie bag!! ^___^ What’s in the bag?? It’s a 10-days supplement drink catered according to the spa service we requested and a Tri-Kit Pack!!

New Vanity Trove

Good evening all! Today I’m gonna share with you my FIRST revamped Vanity Trove! What? What revamp?? yea.. Vanity trove had changed their concept last month and now you will no longer rec’d any SURPRISE at your doorstep..

From July onward, subscriber can pick what they want to goes into their trove!!! (Yeah or Neh?)

VT

For me i feel .. it’s a neh.. Yes, you get to pick what you want but u no longer get to anticipate any surprise nor try new product (by “force”).. When we (people) are given an option, we usually choose to pick something we’re more comfortable with. We also tends to measure the sample by its value and in the end, good sample that are of low value may be overlooked..? You know u paid S$25 of course u want to maximize every dollar and get the best samples! Given a Go60 mask (retail price: 5 for S$60) and a Beauty Diary mask (retail price: box of 10 for less than S$20??) which one will you want?? Go60 of course(!) but Beauty Diary is as good tooo you see…

Well, the only yeah part is.. i get to choose what i want! i can click click click all the expensive sample!!! Fastest finger first!! But again…. if these are all sample size (sachet 1ml, 3ml, 5ml) i don’t see a point in paying S$25 to get 6-7 sachet sample.. i can just go to the retail outlet or counter to ask for one…

CONCLUSION, i had cancelled my Vanity Trove subscription until i see any good promo! 😀 So for now.. Let’s just take a quick peep at what we have this month!

IMG_4064

See, that’s what i mean.. i have Dr Ci:Labo 2 times (this is the 3rd!) already but i still select this when it is available! WHY? because.. Firstly! it is really a good product! Save time and save effort! Secondly, this thing cost S$130 for 120g!!! So if u do your maths, this thing itself already cost S$21.67 (20g)!

You can check out my previous post HERE for this product’s review..

IMG_4066

Next, Kose’s sunblock! I haven’t use this but it has been stirring my curiosity!! LOL Kose is a reputable brand and i believe this little thing should be good! I’ll review again when i start using this…

IMG_4067

Next next~ DrGL collagen essence! Again, this is a sample that i had gotten before and it’s so good that i decided to grab it once more! Cost is a factor tooo! 30ml for S$198 – aint that crazy!? You can click HERE to find out more about this essence…

As of now… Just this 3 items it’s already worth almost S$100!! O_o

IMG_4068

Next up~ Kerastase hair oil! Again again! This is another good hair oil that i had tried before – when i just did my perm! It’s does wonder and i decided to grabbed it (heehee) one more time!

You can click HERE to check out my previous post on it’s review..

IMG_4069

Ujene serum.. i cannot remember if this is good but since i need 7 items to check out, so i just grabbed this! hahahaha

Nonetheless, feel free to check my previous post HERE for its review! 🙂

Seriously… this is post seems like my easiest post! hahahaha!!

IMG_4071

IMG_4072

Kilo Off Slimming Tea! i want to clarify, not that i want to slim down.. but i thot this tea will taste as yummy as the Fruity tea (which i will show you again) but it turns out not as fantastic.. Just this 2 sachet, pls dun expect to shed 10kg off! It will be good to just drink this like a beverage.. it’s still nice to drink it as a tea than SLIMMING tea…

IMG_4073

 

Last but not least! My Beauty Diary’s 2 step mask! Serum is packed at the “hot air balloon” area.. i haven try this mask but I’m pretty confident it will works well because none of their mask have failed me yet!! 🙂

IMG_4070

OOPS! sorry!! nearly forgot about this… I think this is an extra perks for subscriber because i don’t remember i opt for this shampoo!! Although its not something fantastic but this thing will comes in handy when i go for my short trip! Nice scent shampoo and hair feels softer after wash!! *thumbs up!*

So that’s all for this month’s (July/Aug) trove!! stay tune SOON for my next (last) trove that will be arriving within this week or maybe next… *wink*

 

Febuary Trove – Romancing Beauty

Dang dang dang dang~~~~ It’s time again for Vanity Trove!!!

This month’s trove is a bit… half excited and half not. Why?? Read on!!

20130123-220047.jpg

Seems pretty “light” this month ya? haha.. nothing too hoo-ha about~

20130123-220106.jpg

So first, Let me introduce you to something that i’ve seen at most 7-eleven outlet!

*drumroll*

The GABANite All Natural Drink Relaxer…! Like what is printer on the bottle, specially formulated for night time to help you sleep! Gamma Amino Butyric Acid (GABA) and melatonin are naturally produced in the body and are responsible for relaxation and sleep. This drink provides the additional GABA and melatonin (along with other important ingredients) needed for individuals to relax and be calm during times of stress which affects sleep. Better sleep leads to better work performance, social interaction and better life.

I haven try this because i have no problem sleeping at night thus I’m pretty worry if i drink this i will … OVERSLEPT!! hahahaha!!! Will i??? I can’t recall how much 7-eleven is selling this but it probably won’t cost more than S$5 per bottle like this and a bottle is about 60ml! For maximum result drink whole bottle at one go(!) else half a bottle should do the trick! Zzzz~ (should be tasty in a way as its berry flavour, with a natural sugar substitute, Stevia.)

You can check out THIS SITE for more GABANite drink information!!

20130123-220132.jpg

20130123-220138.jpg

No wonder people says.. PACKAGING IS VERY IMPORTANT This not-very-eye-catching Aloe Vera Gel by Jorubi is the “Gem” of Jorubi products!! This aloe vera gel soothes/moisturizes skin, promotes healing of minor burns/wounds/ulcers, relieves rashes/sunburn/chaffing/abrasions/skin irritations. (reminds me of the Moa green balm)

This gel is not very expensive.. S$19.80 for 120ml, S$11.20 for 30ml and S$3.75 for 10gm! Easily available at Watsons/Guardian/SaSa/Unity!!

20130123-220156.jpg

NOW THIS IS WHAT I WILL GO CRAZY FOR!!! Not only its from KIEHL’S!! IT’S….. Clearly Corrective™ Dark Spot Solution!

20130123-220203.jpg

20130123-220208.jpg

Tho its only 4ml but each time (morning & night) i only have to use a drop only spot area before moisturizer..

Clearly Corrective™ DARK SPOT SOLUTION is a fast-acting serum that evens skin tone and diminishes dark spots to impart overall radiance and luminosity to the skin:

• In as little as 2 weeks, 55% of women clinically demonstrated a significant reduction in dark spot intensity.
• In 4 weeks, 69% of women clinically demonstrated a continued reduction in dark spots intensity and 73% of women showed a significant reduction in acne scarring.  Reduction in other skin discolorations was clinically evident among 69% of women.
• In 8 weeks, 87% of women clinically demonstrated more uniform skin tone to deliver breakthrough clarity.
• With continued daily usage, Clearly Corrective helps to prevent the formation of future dark spots and other skin discolorations.
• No Silicones. No Parabens. No Fragrance. No Colorants. No Optical Diffusers.

I had use it for *counting* …. about 3 days already and i’m pretty impress with the results! No.. my freckles are still visible but they seems to have lighted quite a bit! Not too sure is it due to Shakura facial treatment or Kielh’s! but i think both plays a part!! if this Kielh’s is still working after i finish the whole sample, i tell you.. I’M GONA GO GET ONE FULL SIZE SOLUTION!!! What? how much you are asking??? Seriously if is works well i think S$49.50 is still consider alright for a 30ml bottle!!!!

Hmm.. that means this 4ml we got from VT is worth S$6.60? 4ml last easily more than 2 weeks for me.. great! this is…. totally a good investment!! HAHAHAHA!!

20130123-220229.jpg

Alright, next in the list.. something from Origins.. not too excited about this as i recall i’ve gotten this in one of my trove alright.. just a regular anti-aging serum.

20130123-220235.jpg

I believe this tube is no stranger to most girls out there!! BB Cream from Skin79. Many firsl are crazy over Skin79 bb cream.. but for my, i think Ettusais better.

"diamond" hand    Spots still visible    non-cream type

This bb cream is a bit too runny and coverage is not there. If i need to use this, i think i will apply it on top my my Ettusais bb cream to give it a dewy glowing look! It will works well for people gg after dewy glowing look and coverage is not an issue for them. & where to get them? Watsons/Guardian/SaSa/BHG/John Little/BeautySpring! Not too hard to find ya!?

20130123-220254.jpg

This little soap caught my attention! It’s Yuan Mandarin Orange Soap – Sweet Happiness! I like the oriental and unique packaging. As this is a sample size, we are not able to see the embossed print on the regular soap. (continue scrolling down)

20130123-220312.jpg

January Trove – 2013 Fresh New You

Brand NEW Start!!!This is my January Trove – Pretty excited about it!!

So what do we have here?? see seeeeee!!!

20121223-160241.jpg

Nice ya?? So many fun stuff! There ain’t many little little stuff in this month’s trove but still feel pretty good! We have 7 items this month and guess what.. the usual product card has been changed to a little booklet!

20121223-160305.jpg

Slim Secrets Bar! How many of you have tried this? Seriously I’m not a person who’s keen in all this diet snack bars.. but if given one, i won’t resist to try though! >_< & this snack bar seems beneficial..

Contains Soy protein which is:

  • High in fibre
  • High in protein
  • Low in saturated fat
  • Cholesterol-free
  • Lactose-free
  • A good source of omega-3 fatty acids
  • High in phytoestrogens

The suggested health benefits of whole soy foods include:

  • Lowered blood pressure
  • Soybeans are thought to be of some health benefit to menopausal women. Soybeans contain hormone-like substances called phytoestrogens (‘phyto’ means plant). More research is needed, but soybeans seem to offer promise in helping some women to manage menopausal hot flushes.
  • Improvements to blood vessels, such as greater elasticity of artery walls
  • Reduced risk of osteoporosis
  • Protection against various cancers, including those of the breast, colon, prostate and skin
  • Management of endometriosis
  • Soybeans have been shown to lower blood cholesterol levels as well as lipoproteins, both known risk factors for heart disease

Are Low Glycemic Low glycemic foods are essential for lifelong health and can help you:

  • Lose weight: GI reflects the rate at which sugar is released into the bloodstream and the slower this occurs, the better. Foods with a low GI are digested slower and therefore leave you ‘fuller’ longer
  • Reduce your risk of heart disease
  • Improve your athletic performance
  • Manage diabetes
  • Achieve optimum health
  • Control blood glucose levels
  • Tackle syndrome X

Are High fibre Keeps the digestive system healthy. Eating a diet low in fibre can contribute to many disorders, including:

  • Constipation – small, hard and dry faecal matter that is difficult to pass
  • Haemorrhoids – varicose veins of the anus
  • Diverticulitis – small hernias of the digestive tract caused by long term constipation
  • Irritable bowel syndrome – pain, flatulence and bloating of the abdomen
  • Overweight and obesity – carrying too much body fat. In many cases, people who are overweight or obese have been shown to lose significant amounts of excess body fat simply by increasing the amount of dietary fibre, especially soluble fibre, in their daily diet Fibrous foods are often bulky and, therefore, filling. They also tend to be low in fat
  • Coronary heart disease – a narrowing of the arteries due to fatty deposits.
  • Diabetes – a condition characterised by too much glucose in the blood.
  • Colon cancer – cancer of the large intestine

Are High fibre Keeps the digestive system healthy. Eating a diet low in fibre can contribute to many disorders, including:

There is strong evidence that the high levels of fat consumed by most Australians are a major risk factor for conditions like gallbladder disease, cancer, and diabetes.

Furthermore, high levels of saturated fats, which are found in animal fats, high-fat dairy foods, tropical oils, and hydrogenated (solidified) vegetable oils, raise your cholesterol level and promote heart disease and strokes. The benefits of a low fat diet not only include better health as shown here but also the added benefit of potential weight loss if combined with other positive actions such as exercise.

Wheat free

Many people today are being diagnosed as having an allergy to wheat protein. Slim Secrets bars are wheat free for this reason.

Slim Secrets BARS have received Halal Accreditation from The Australian Federation of Islamic Councils Inc.

All these can be found in their webby HERE. I think it’s good to take a look in there as its not only about their product, they have some Health Secrets (which are impossible for me to list all down here) to share too!!

20121223-160331.jpg

Next next!! This very interesting Aqua-Collagen-Gel from Dr.Ci:Labo! Why interesting?? Because this is a ALL IN ONE miracle gel!! It’s an anti-aging lotion, anti-aging emulsion, lifting serum, brightening and makeup base all at once! What’s more to expect!?

As women age, they experience hormonal imbalances, reduced basal metabolism and many other bodily changes and these cause the skin moisture to decline. Such a drop in skin moisture is the most significant trigger of aging. Moreover, reduced basal metabolism results in lower collagen production.

Reduced collagen leads to oxidation, which damages, hardens and weakens the skin’s collagen. As a result, the skin loses its resilience and elasticity. As there is less facial muscle to hold up the skin, the skin is drawn down by gravity and starts to sag visibly on the surface. By using Aqua-Collagen-Gel Enrich-Lift-EX alone, one can finish the step of anti-aging lotion, anti-aging emulsion, lifting serum, brightening and makeup base all at once!

Formulated with the “Lifting Complex” composed of three different lifting ingredients, Aqua-Collagen-Gel Enrich-Lift-EX leaves an invisible film on the skin and provides a high level of support for less resilient skin, so that instant results can be achieved. Alpha lipoc acid, a universal anti-aging ingredient, powerfully attacks the sagging of skin with its ultra anti-oxidative potency and ability to promote collagen production.

One step and everything is done! man! This is… unbelievable! Can’t wait to try this! Ahhh.. i know u must be concern about the price?? hmm.. true that it won’t be something very affordable but the fact that it’s an all in one product.. it doesn’t seems that costly anymore.. S$75 for 50g and S$150 120g! This Aqua-Collagen-Gel is more suited for normal/oily/combination skin and those with sagging face & aging sign concerns.

The other 3 types of gel they have are:

Aqua-Collagen-Gel Super Moisture (S$130 for 120g) which is also an all-in-one gel – suitable for normal/sensitive/combination skin and those with dry skin concern!

Aqua-Collagen-Gel Super Sensitive (S$130 for 120g) – suitable for sensitive skin and those who feel irritation when using other skincare items concern!

Aqua-Collagen-Gel BI・HA・KU (S$140 for 120g) which is also an all-in-one gel – Suitable for bnormal/oily/combination skin and those with dark spot/skin dullness concern!

Now are you tempted to try one too??? Head to their webby HERE and register to get a 1 week trial (10g) now or head to Takashimaya S.C. to check out their counter! 😀

20121223-160315.jpg

20121223-160440.jpg

20121223-160452.jpg

It’s pretty handy and can easily bring it to everywhere.. AH! now i recall… maybe its something similar to Moa Balm? hmm.. ya probably! maybe u you can enlighten me on how to use it???

August Trove – Rocket Science

Ah ha! It’s time again for the once a month thingy!! Ah.. Don’t worry! It’s not menses time.. It’s Vanity Trove time!!!

This month’s trove was a bit late.. And with the courier service “mis-delivery” it’s even later.. What actually happen? Ah.. Long story.. But since u insist to know, I will share a bit! (hahahaha!!)

VT had announced (on FB) that trove will be late but will still be arriving bef Aug! I’m waiting with my neck longer than giraffe’s! And on 31st morning, while I was out in the morning, the courier came! Shucks!! Y no call me!?

I called courex back to arrange for re-delivery anytime that day as I’ll be home WHOLE DAY! But they said the earliest date for re-delivery is 2Aug! Man~~! At the same time I checked w them izit a norm that courier guy not calling bef delivery? And guess wat, they said only upon request then they will call bef delivery.. (thn wat’s e diff w this courier and Singpost Registered Mail??) So I decided to drop VT an email.. With VT’s reply I’m sure we think alike! Courex should call before delivery! That is the norm! What is Mr. Courex (i’m not mentioning name but I’m keeping the delivery notification w his name) doing?? Where is the good service courex USED TO have??

Sigh…..

Anyway, here’s my trove! Kinda weird to see a pack of sth taped outside the Trove.. Did they forgot to put it in or was it an extra due to the delay??
20120802-205438.jpg

Plenty of fun stuff!!! Quite happy with this month’s trove as it doesn’t have facial foam, toner & moisturizer anymoreeee!! Yippie!!

I used it this morning and I can still sense the fragrance lingering around mi when I’m in office for almost half a day already!! If it is cost effective, I might consider getting a regular size!?? Hiak hiak hiak!!! Heartz!!

UPDATE on 11 August 2012: here’s my very late update!! finally got my chance to use this eye mask last weeeek..!

 

Generous serum in a pack.. might not see it in my pic.. but its really der, just that the angle i took my pic is… ya BAD! 

 

The mask.. It’s a one whole pcs thingy!! now even the neglected area get some nourish!! hahaha.. i’m not sure to say its good or it’s bad.. 

Good because i feel less tired aft the masking session. i dono izit because i just took a power nap of 10mins or because it really makes mi feel better.. HAHA! & bad because other than that i don’t feel anything special..

Probably other type of mask may be better for mi.. geez~!

20120802-223305.jpg

Well well.. Here’s Origins anti aging serum!! Shall I keep this for myself or gv to mama?? Hmm…

20120802-230505.jpg

Can u guess what’s this without mi telling u?? It took mi half a min to figure it out! HAHAHAHAH!! I was still wondering if it’s some mask or something.. Who would guess oxypad is really a PAD!?!??

20120802-230607.jpg

20120802-230614.jpg

I….. struggle quite some time to finally decided to keep (post) this pic.. I will not open to show u as I mite be gvn warning for posting not suitable pic!! Lolx! This pack includes a regular day pad and 2 pantyliner?

It is said to have color warning ‘function’!! If the appears to be yellowish/greenish brown, u shd consult a gynae. If its pure yellow, u’re normal. Cool? U decide!

20120802-231452.jpg

Pure Beauty Bon Voyage Essential eye cream! I think my mom will love mi for sharing this with her!! She love this eye cream!! I had got this too from previous special trove!! The mild rose scent is really attractive!!

20120802-232838.jpg

This is Majorlica Majorca Eye Reset gel a.k.a. eye makeup remover.. this is good.. almost works the same like my Biore Jelly makeup remover. Just that this is specially for eye area.

20120802-232936.jpg

Just a little bit like this, smaller then 10c coin, i can remove my eyeliner (waterproof gel liner from Kate)..

20120802-232916.jpg

20120802-232926.jpg

PLEASE! pardon my *uncensored* untrimmed brow! i waiting for it to grow so that i can visit Erabelle! LOL!! (You’ll find out why Erabelle soon!)

Here.. see.. my eyeliner is gone without much effort.. Its a good eye makeup remover IMO. but since i already have my Biore jelly makeup remover, which can remove waterproof eye makeup too, i don’t see a point in why should i purchase this. But if u are those who needs specifically EYE makeup removal, i will recommend you to get it.. It’s quick and easy!

20120802-233027.jpg

Seriously… I’m clueless in how to use them and what to do with them!! gosh~!! probably i can bring it down to the counter one day and check with them.. hearing them explain is better than reading from web!!

20120802-233050.jpg

20120802-233057.jpg

And they include a 1-minute quick fix session that comes w a complimentary mini Glamour Shot Eyes. I wonder if i can bring a friend down with me to experience this.. hmm.. but i know Origins can!!

20120802-233143.jpg

20120802-233157.jpg

Here’s my Origins  Mini Facial treat!! hmm it’s stated that exclusive for VT Member.. but i think what they meant was only the 1-day supply of Plantscription anti-aging duo. WHY? see below…

This mini facial is actually free – at all time! Above info was cropped from their official site.. anyone can just head down to Origins store for your mini facial if you had booked your appointment. So i guess it ain’t really that exclusive afterall.. (-___-)

20120802-233132.jpg

Next! here’s my Erabelle Erabrow Design promo voucher.. it’s almost 40% off..? so why not take this chance to drop by and experience the “everybody-say-good” brow trimming!

20120802-221701.jpg

20120802-232511.jpg

Now this is Neutrogena Deep Clean Brightening Mulberry Foaming Scrub!!! Tried it this evening. Hmm.. Seems quite mild? Feels like another foaming scrub, nth too special.. 🙂 but good to be able to try it..

20120802-224615.jpg

20120802-224623.jpg

Now this Biore Makeup remover ain’t something new to me.. Tried it preciously in one of the VT special edition trove and had bought a regular size one.. If u hvn try this, I’m telling u, YOU SHOULD! this is mad heaven!! See my previous post HERE and see how I fall in love with it!!!

20120802-230008.jpg

Skin 79 BB Cream I’m sure is nth new to u.. I wun elaborate much on this as I trust that you have at least used once or twice of this BB cream before.. Probably samples or from qoo10?

In short, Skin 79 have great BB Cream but I’m still loving my Ettusais one! Heee!!

20120802-233255.jpg

April Bellabox – Flawless Beauty

Got it!! Got it!! rec’d my April’s Bellabox on Wed! 😀 Super happy!! interesting item in this month’s box..

This month’s box feels abit heavy.. made mi even more eager to open up and see what’s inside..! when i opened it up.. the first thing i saw is a Lemongrass House S$5 voucher!! I’m so glad!! i love Lemongrass House!!! Gona make a visit to LGH after ‘ma payday!!

Seeing the voucher made mi look fwd to seeing something fr LGH! After i unwrapped my bellabox(!) indeed…! there lies a miniature bot of shower gel!! Lavender Scent! Tried it immediately that night (as i just returned home, yet to shower!! *stink* hahaha!!) i nvr really wanted to try any lavender scent items because i think it’s too common.. everybody loves lavender..But after i tried this lavender shower gel.. i changes my perception! This is NICE! It does not have this typical floral lavender scent.. i can really feel the “de-stress” magic (lavender is famous for its destress ability)!! I feel so relax and enjoy using this shower gel..! It made mi so look fwd to my next shower time!!! hahahaha!! i think i’m gona spend that S$5 voucher getting something lavender!! Lavender essential oil perhaps.. what do you think?? *grin*

Next happy item i got is this!! Benefit’s Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow! Its a lightweight liquid foundation to FLAWLESS Skin!! HAHAH! Heard that this is Benefit FIRST liquid foundation! is it true!?? I like the way this foundation comes.. pump bottle instead of tube pack. but probably tube pack will be better when your foundation is running out.. u know y! haha! we can SQUEEZEEEE all the way for tt lil drop of foundation but we cant squeeze a pump bottle!! This travel size foundation is enuff to last me for at least a year! LOL! i shd start making good use of this already!! (Regular size 300ml: USD34)

KINOHIMITSU Collagen drink!!!!! I’m gg crazy for this!!! this is the most exciting product i got in this month’s box!! Spare mi those nutri-fruit bar!! i HATE it!!! taste bad! smells bad!! had heard a lot of good review about this beauty drink but no chance to really explore it further.. and now! i’ve got 2 bots of this beauty drink!!! aaaw.. <3<3<3

Kinohimitsu have various type of beauty drink.. Collagen, BB, Collagen Diamond 5300, UV-Bright, BodySlen, BustUp! For this collagen drink, if you are facing problems like forehead frown lines, wrinkles, noticable neck line, laugh lines, sagging cheeks & double chin (!!!! i hv double chin!!), eye bags… YOU SHOULD get one!!! The ingredient includes Collagen (fish), Perilla Seed Extract, Silk Protein, Soy Isoflavone, Apple, Lemon & Lychee Condensed Juice! Just have to drink one bot bef gg to bed at night or in the morning before breakfast… if u asked mi, i would prefer to take it at night as 10pm – 2am is the precious beauty slp time whrby ur body starts to repair your whatever damaged cells!! Be aslp by 10pm .. dun wake up before 2am!!! have at least 7-8 hours of slp..! and u will be stepping closer to ur FLAWLESS SKIN!

I’m definitely gona grab more of this (or maybe other kind) SOON if the price is right!!

Next we have here is a mask!! looks different from other mask pack.. I read some review on this mask and it seems like a pretty good stuff!! 好料!!What caught my attention is the MOISTURIZING EFFECT!!! it seems pretty good in doing that…! Read more from HERE.

Last in the list, i find it quite .. not much of a use is this Moa Green Balm.. It is said to be some organic healing cream?? Móa’s miraculous healing powers soothe, nourish and renew dry, itchy skin conditions like, eczema and psoriasis, bumps, bites, grazes and minor burns.. Probably i can just throw this in my bag for any “Just-In-Case” incident!! it will be handy i guess.. plus its not very bulky!

In da box.. there’s also some promo notice and beauty tips! i think this beauty tips are quite achieveable.. u shd try it too!

Sleeping Beauty: Swedish scientist have discovered that beauty sleep really is essential to looking attractive. Aim for at least 7 hours sleep a night to be your beautiful best.

Prevent fine lines: Give skin a boost with a glycolic acid peel to speed up cell turnover. Glycolic acid is a natural exfoliator and moisturiser that helps to ‘unglue’ dead skin cells whilst drawing moisture into new skin cells.

Disguise dark circles: Didn’t manage to get those 7 hours sleep? Never fear, there is always concealer. The trick to hiding dark eye circles is to counteract them with a toned concealer – try one that is yellow based and one or two shades lighter than your foundation.

Prime: Primer is perhaps the most important step to creating flawless skin, not only do they even skin tone, smooth out fine lines, wrinkles, and even reduce the appearance of pores but also diffure light meaning your skin glows with natural beauty.

Prevent Shine: Buy yourself a very big brush! A large brush will help to achieve an airbrushed look and control shine thoughout the day – dip a large, fluffy brush in loose translucent powder and apply lightly all over
