Review: Laneige Trouble Spot Gel Cream

Before I review on skinfood face mask, I will first do a review on Laneige Trouble Spot Gel Cream which I bought together with Laneige Balancing Emulsion. You can find the review for the latter here. I was using the trouble spot gel cream one night and realized that I am about to finish. The a thought hit me 'I better do a review on it soon since it such a good product'. So here I am.

I bought this on impulse when I was in Korea in January since it was cheaper than in local. I did not do any research whatsoever. It surprisingly pretty good.

Review: Nature Republic Aqua Collagen Solution Eye Treatment Mask

This post is going to be relatively picture heavy as compared to my past post. Today, I am going to review Nature Republic Aqua Collagen Solution Eye Treatment Mask. I bought this from Korean in a pack of 20. This definitely cannot be found in Singapore because Nature Republic has retreated from Singapore few years ago (bummer). Nevertheless, if you are really keen in trying it out, maybe you could try and find it on qoo10 or Nature Republic outlet in Johor Bahru. 

First look

Review: Hada Labo Whitenning Lotion Refill

I just finished my first bottle for Hada Labo Whitening Lotion. So far loving the result I get from it except for the sunscreen lotion part as I have mention in my review for the lotion itself. (Click here to see) 
Last friday after my driving lesson, I decided stop by Watsons to look for new products for my skin. Guess what? I saw Hada Labo Whitening Lotion Refill. So, I bought it. But, from the packaging I think Hada Labo actually made some improvement to the lotion. "New Nano Formula" is printed on the packaging. Anyway, I am still loving it despite the changes.

Some pictures:

The refill comes in a blue colored packaging that is similar to some detergent refill that you can find in supermarket. However, the packaging comes with a special and smart feature that prevents you from spilling these precious lotion while pouring in your empty Hada Labo container.

How to pour using the special feature :D
The special feature that I am talking about is actually a a small plastic thinggy that can be bent into a curve like structure making the refill satchel to have a tube like structure.

Cut at the dotted line
Trying to cut and take picture
Tube structure that I've mentioned
Mission accomplished
  • Its is cheaper compared to buying a new bottle of Hada Labo (The refill costed me $18 while a new bottle will cost me $22)
  • Its more environmentally friendly then buying a new bottle
  • I feel that the new formula makes the Hada Labo less stick after application
  • Loving the tube structure that assist in pouring

  • Cant think of anything at the moment. 
I will rate this 5/5.

P.S. One good news! I just passed my driving test.. ke ke ke

Review: Himalaya Herbals Clear Complexion Whitening Face Wash

If your a regular reader of my blog, you will most probably realized that I am actually a fan of whitening skincare products! This is my second time trying out Himalaya Herbals product and for this product I love and hate it at the same time.

This Clear Complexion Whitening Face Wash contains several unique and natural main ingredients and have been found to be beneficial for our skin. Licorice, White Dammer and lastly Saffron.
Licorice and White Dammer lightens the skin tone and restores our skin's natural fairness whereas Saffron (the most expensive herb that can be found in most Indian cuisines, which l love so much) surprisingly has an enhancing properties that helps clear spots and blemishes.

Beautiful pictures for my dear readers :D

The texture of the cleanser is gooey and smells like baby Johnson's shampoo that we all have used before when we were young hehehe!

What I like about this face wash is that my skin feels really squeaky, clean and smooth after use. My cheek kind of look like "porcelain" .... (LOL! I sound cocky saying that my skin look like porcelain... but I cant find a perfect word to describe it.... maybe clear and shiny).

Now the cons, it made the sides of my nose very dry and I have to scrape off some of the dry skin which is quite a painful experience for me! I am not sure why this happened. But I have come with a conclusion that this face wash is not compatible for my skin.
Cr to: owner
 I will rate this product 2/5.

For those who have tried this face wash before do share your experience of using this face wash!

Review: Dr. Morita Whitening Essence Mask + Side talk

I am not sure how many of you have heard of this brand of mask which originated from Taiwan and is also made in Taiwan. On the month of May, my sister made a two week trip to Taiwan (for schooling purpose) and bought lots of masks. I didn't expect much from the mask as it is some brand that I have not heard before. Apparently, my sister said that this brand of mask seems quite popular there as the mask keep going out of stock on the shelves. Surprisingly, I really like the mask.
The mask is really soothing and cooling on the skin. Plus, look at the amount essence inside the sachet!
The essence is plentifull such that it is dripping when I took out the mask!
The outcome of using the mask is promising. I observe that my skin is more clearer, the scars I facial treatment (due to my acne) are greatly reduced after I used the masks fro several times. Those bumps due to white heads at the sides of my cheek is also reduced. (Yea recently I get lots of of white heads as I often touch my cheek)

In overall I feel that it is a great mask! My rating for this 5/5.

Side track!

This few weeks, I've been obsessed with EXO-K! They are charismatic and give the same pretense as Taemin. I feel that Taemin will fit perfectly inside the group. They are also quite shy and their shyness can be quite epic. I wish that I have a small brother like them XD!~ And yes! I have to admit Baekyun and D.O are creeping into my biase list... kekeke

Review: Hada Labo Whitening Lotion

A few months ago i bought his hada labo moisturizer plus whitening lotion. Theoritically, its function is to hydrate and plus whitens your skin. This moisturizer has been quite popular in singapore and its is a relatively cheap whitenning lotion. In japan it is #1 whitenning lotion that is being bought every seconds!

I was quite shock that the lotion is actually very watery and not like those creamy texture that is the usually form at which most lotion can be found in. It has no smell. So for those you hate perfume added into skin products, you may like this lotion. the color of the liquid is semi transparent.

At first I didnt quite like this product as I could not see its whitenning effect on skin. So, I stop using it for awhile....
However, after I went for facial treatment that left me with those acne scar (its a really reddiness stop about ... ermmm... lets just say its quite huge and visible) after its extracts puss from the acne, I started using hada labo whitenning lotion. (I was in a hurry looking for solution to get rid of the scar since I dont use makeup). And so I realize the lotion wasn't as bad as I thought. It kind of accelerate the recovery of my scar and it is less visible now. Plus, its hydrate my skin really well and its not sticky if you were to apply it in a correct manner. Its kind of lock up the moisture throughout the whole day.

I will rate this product 4/5. It you have any questions feel free to comment below and I will reply to your enquries ASAP! (Dont be shy hehe...) :D Sayonara folks!

Here are some pictures of Hada Labo Whitening Lotions:

One last important information, when your expose to sunlight dont forget to use sunblock when ur using this lotion! It may cause your skin to have dark spots when expose to UV light.

Review: Nature Republic Whitening Collagen Dream Mask

JYJ ~ Looks like I'm gonna sleep well tonight
 You're wrong I'm not going to blog about JYJ/kpop today....

 I'm going to review Nature Republic Whitening Collagen Dream Mask. I think I know why they call it 'dream ' mask. Just take a look at the packaging.

Pretty packaging and it is endorsed by JYJ
(for those who doesn't know who is JYJ, it is a korean  boy  group)
First look inside, the serum is clear and not thick. The mask is sufficiently wet and there is not excess puddle of serum in the packet.
Clear serum
The first thing I noticed when I put on the mask is the scent. It smells great...a mix of flora and fruity scent. Probably comes from the witch hazel and orange extract in the serum. Witch hazel can reduce blemishes as well as inflammation of pimples!
Skin doesn't feel sticky at all after using the mask. In fact, my skin felt more relaxed. I checked out my skin the next day to see if there is any improvements. My pimple shrink-ed and blemishes on my face seems a little lighter. There is no oily after-effect too. However, I don't think it made my overall skin whiter. Haha.
I'll give the mask 4.5 out of 5.
It's unfortunate that all Nature Republic outlets have closed down in Singapore. WHY???? I really like their products. So for those who want to try out this 'dream' mask you can get it online for a fairly affordable price.
