Believe. Faith. Love. When they are alive, HE is alive.

So life has been hectic for me but i am not complaining. However, that also means that you will see less of my posts.

Gosh, i have so many backdated posts and i am so running out of time. ūüė¶

But anyway, i have a review today which i reckon most of you ladies will be very keen and interested.

biore_micellar_cleansing_waterPhoto credits: Guardian

I received the Biore Micellar Cleansing Water and was really excited to try. Look, every lady is constantly looking for the best makeup remover.
However, everyone defines ‘best’ in different ways, some like it non alcoholic, some like it oil based, some like it to be more convenient – like a wipe or something.

Previously, Biore has this Oil based Cotton Facial Sheets and i thought that was quite good. It  cleans off (make up) quite quickly and effectively in my opinion.

I wouldnt say Biore produces the best make up remover products but i believe they are constantly R&D-ing till they are among the top brands that have the most ranges of make up remover products for consumers.

Anyway, i am not a fan of oil based make up remover. I hate the greasy feeling, i hate  that removing make up has to be oily and makes my face feel like a piece of roti prata. That is also why i did not bother to remove my make up and simply just cleanse my face using normal cleanser.

When i receive the Biore Micellar Cleansing Water, i am quite hopeful that it will work as well as the Cotton Facial Sheets.

Firstly, let me just go through the mandatory introduction to this product:

Biore, the No. 1 Makeup Remover brand in Singapore and Japan, has recently expanded its makeup remover selection through the launch of the New Biore Micellar Cleansing Water, a water-based Makeup Remover that has high cleansing abilities yet gentle enough for all skin types.  

Using Watery Micellar Technology, this lightweight and refreshing makeup remover lifts off more traces of makeup in just 1 wipe, including mascara and eyeliner.  Made with Natural Mineral Water from the Japanese Alps, it is gentle on skin and leaves a refreshing, non-sticky and non-oily after feel on skin.  

 РOil free

– Fragrance free

РAlcohol free 

– Colorant free

– Non-comedogenic (does not clog pores)

РAllergy and opthalmologst tested

Make up i had on my face :  Eyebrow drawn, Dark Brown Eyeshadow, Eyeliner, Highlight and shadowing on my nose, lipstick
There isnt any mascara as i am having eyelash extension

Below shows you the results of mine, after cleaning with the Biore Micellar Cleansing Water
IMG_20140921_2Full make up on.

IMG_20140921_6

Directions are quite straightforward:

Pump an appropriate amount onto a cotton pad. Use soaked cotton pad to gently wipe off makeup. No rinsing required. For eye makeup, place soaked cotton pad onto closed eyes and hold for 5 seconds before gently wiping off. Repeat until all makeup is removed, and cotton pad is cleaned.

I cleaned my left side (your right) to show the  comparison. Eyebrow was previously drawn was wiped away, highlights and shadows on the nose gone, brown eyeshadow is gone too. Lipstick remains thou.

IMG_20140921_7
For clearer comparison.

IMG_20140921_898% of the make up removed. Small amount of lip stains still  visible as you can see.

Overall, i will rate this product a 8.5/10 firstly because it is very convenient. Thou it did not manage to remove my lip stains completely, it is still considered quite good when it comes to removing the rest of the make up. As i am having eyelash extension on, this product is a perfect match for me. As oil based make up remover is a big NONO for ladies with eye lash extension, this cleansing water is the ideal make up remover.

The cleansing water does not leave any greasy or sticky texture after cleansing (claps claps!), I felt refreshed after removing all the makeup.
But i would prefer  double cleansing  although the cleansing water serves a second function as normal cleansing.

I personally love this product just because it is not oil based and it is good news for my eye lashes (haha) and i will continue using it till i find a better and more affordable price.

Retailing: S$18.90
Available: All pharmacies, hypermarkets and supermarkets, major departmental stores from 15 August

Will be heading to the small claims court for one really ridiculous case by a very unethical business.
I will share more.
My purpose is to really warn people against being scammed of their money, whether small or big money.

I walked pass a kind stranger the other day. He was very attentive towards the stray dogs near my house.
It was supposed to be a heartwarming sight but i can’t believe what actually came to mind.

That best girlfriend i used to have.

It was definitely not a good memory because i have totally forgotten about how nice she was before she decided to ditch me because of her crazy insecure bf. Her bf has dragged me into their quarrel and created havoc for me and my boyfriend out of his insecurity and inferiority. This best gf i used to have, actually chose to end the friendship i had with her before. What makes this even more dramatic is that she even met this crazy bf through me. There i am, being ditched, conveniently just because they cant handle their own pathetic love life and i have to be blamed after i was being persuaded non stop by the guy to help.

I can understand human beings being selfish and standing up for their partners but i can never forget how evil this pair was, in order to save their relationship, they can do anything to harm me and my relationship.

There are more to this tragic story but i really just want to forget.

The reason why she even came to mind after i saw a caring dog lover is because she claims she loves dogs. She and her crazy bf who used to hit her dogs like a maniac claim they are avid lovers of dogs. They shared hatred messages on fb if they see any dog being bullied or abused, especially her.

Frankly, i have long given up on such people and no matter how many people want to update me about her life with that crazy bf of hers, i expressed no interest. They are already out of my life, even social media life.
I have known too much, likewise, they knew alot about me and my bf too. The problems we had and etc. Thus i wont say that they are the only ones facing rs problems. But as far as i know, my bf and i have never try to harm anyone because we still have our conscience.

So, why do i even think of her when i walk pass a dog lover?

I then realised, maybe..just maybe, some people who behaves like hypocrites by declaring their undying love for animals, are actually human haters which have too much time to be bothered with serious issues of life, they can actually love dogs but destroy human beings.

By saying that, i do not mean that dog lovers are human haters, i just mean that some people are behaving worse than the animals they rear, they love. True story. sad too.

How ironic.

I received the Curél Sebum Care series and was about to do a review which many might be thrilled to read about!
If you are a victim of sensitive skin, do not fret as there are many others who are sharing the same problem as you.  Read on and you might just find the answers to your questions!

INTRODUCTION
Curél, Japan’s No. 1 brand for sensitive Asian skin, introduces a new skincare range specially formulated for sensitive and oily or combination skin types. The Curél Sebum Care range offers the skincare essentials to properly manage both skin sensitivity and sebum secretion.

DO YOU FACE THE FOLLOWING PROBLEMS?
Having extremely oily T-zone
Tried many brands of oil controlling products but finds that the products actually disappoint
Blotting excess oil on T-zone every now and then when you are out

DO YOU KNOW?
Do you know that excess sebum can aggravate skin sensitivity?A lot of people who have both conditions ‚Äď skin sensitivity and oily skin tend to place more emphasis on choosing products that help with their skin sensitivity.
Excess sebum generated will deteriorate as skin gets more alkaline, turning into irritants to cause Ô¨āare-ups within the skin layers.
Hence it is important to choose products that effectively control skin sensitivity while reducing sebum secretion from the source.
1b7bc72fda9a7f449b6ea74b33cbca77
STEPS TO APPLY PRODUCTS:

Two full pumps of Foaming Wash apply directly onto wet skin.
Apply lotion gently over the whole face twice daily, morning and night respectively.
Apply three to four pumps gently over the entire face twice daily, once in the morning and at nightAfter the above steps, moisturizer will come next.
A liquid based gel that spreads easily for speedy absorption without that nasty sticky feeling on skin.

One thing i love about the product is the Matt condition the skin seem to has and in just 4 weeks, skin sensitivity and excess sebum will be under¬†totally under control. I will not continue with this product though as i do not really have the problem of oily and sensitive skin. But i will most probably intro it to my BF because he has sensitive skin issue and my Sis as she is slightly on the oily skin’s condition. I believe this product will be able to help!

First and foremost, let me ¬†take this chance to wish my Mother, the greatest Mum on earth, a HAPPY BIRTHDAY! May Mum be blessed with longevity. Although she can be very irritating and a pain sometimes, well most mothers are anyway so i am lucky i have a really good one. HAHA!IMG_20140802_8 She is the strongest woman ever, bringing me and my Sister up and loving us unconditionally. ūüôā I have lost my patience towards her many times and although i have been trying to be better, i still fail time to time.
However, she has never for once hated me for that, I am very blessed to have a Mum that loves me so much, and i am also blessed that when problem arises, sister and John are there to help calm me down.
Gonna rush home after some unhappy event (i will update on that soon) for cake cutting and mini celebration.
We celebrated last weekend at Rendevous Hotel with the relatives already, tonight is the actual day of my Mum’s Birthie and thus Sis and i would want to have cake with her. (her fav Mao Shan Wang flavor!)

Ok, anyway, i guess it is kinda overdue for my review for Bio-essence Tanaka White. I better get it done before i am so packed again.
Sponsored IMG_20140806_2 So, i received 2 items the other day and although i am taking longer than usual to submit this review, i believe it is for a better cause too. I do not want to start using something for a few days and give my verdict after just that few days. The longer period of time i use the product, the more i can experience and understand what the product can do. Processed with VSCOcam with m5 preset As you can see from the packaging, on your left, it is the Bio-essence Tanaka White Double Whitening Day Cream SPF20 ($29.80 / 50g ) and on the right, it is the ¬†Bio-essence Tanaka White 4x Intensive White Serum ($45.80 / 30ml). I can’t wait to ¬†try out the products the moment i got them as i am a Bio-essence user too (Bio-essence V ¬†face cream). After cleansing, i apply the¬†Bio-essence Tanaka White 4x Intensive White Serum and as instructed on the packaging, i¬†apply another layer over areas with dark spots & freckles.

Oh man, those freaking spots and freckles, they are my biggest enemies. My skin is generally good and will be better without those spots. Tsk.

Well, i do not usually care much about the ingredients but it is good to know from time to time.

So these are what is inside the Serum: Tanaka Extract‚ĄĘ,¬†Tranexamic Acid,¬†Alpha-Arbutin (9X more Alpha-Arbutin (9X more effective than Beta-Arbutin¬†in skin whitening)¬†, Kojic Acid, Bio¬†Energy Fluid

For this 4X Instensive White Serum, it promises to fight Darkness on Outside, Work Fairness from Within and it claims the following benefits: Effectively lighten existing pigments and spots Block tyrosinase and inhibits the production of melanin to prevent dark spots and reduce darkening after UV exposure Even out skin tone, whiten & brighten complexion Moisturizes and cools skin Result: Skin exudes radiance, for a smooth, fair & healthy looking complexion. Skin’s fairness intensifies for flawless fair skin which glows from within.

My Conclusion? Firstly, this is how it looks like (right): Processed with VSCOcam with f2 presetI might be clumsy but honestly, i feel this packaging isnt much of my liking because it turned into some fix and match thingy after a min or 2 after i was trying to see how the dispenser¬†actually work. Not very user friendly¬†in my opinion. Processed with VSCOcam with a4 preset Processed with VSCOcam with a4 presetWell the picture says it all, it works in a way which you have to press the top part of the rubber and let the serum flow out when release pressing. Eh…really not very nice¬†for face serum i reckon. Ear drops maybe? IMG_20140806_5 So this is taken after i applied the serum, pictures is not edited not filtered. I like the texture of the serum though. It is not too sticky, but it gives a very refreshing watery and dewy feeling to the skin. After which, i proceed with my usual toner and moisturizer. Overall, i am quite satisfied with the serum and the result it brings, although it is not instant result i am talking about. I like how the dewy serum feels on the skin, it makes my face feel very moisturized and i have to admit that the glow that comes from within, is definitely there. I also tried the¬†Bio-essence Tanaka White Double Whitening Day Cream SPF20 in the mornings before i head to work. I gotta admit i love the product very much because it really keeps my skin very very hydrated while protecting it from UV rays. I have another SPF cream that i am using which i also fancy too but i find it a little (just a littler) drier than this. However, some might find this product oily or sticky. As i put on make up only around noon, wheareas the SPF20 cream is on for hours, it does not really fade away, instead, it makes putting on make up easier for me. (in my opinion) The product promises to visibly reduces dark spots and evens out skin tone and this is what it contains: Tanaka Extract‚ĄĘ, Hyaluronic Acid, Tranexamic Acid,¬†Pomelo¬†extract, minerals The benefits it brings as according to product:SPF20 to protect against harmful UV rays

  1. Tanaka Extract‚ĄĘ shields skin from external pollutants, keeps skin cool and moisturized under hot weather
  2. Contains Tranexamic Acid that helps to significantly brighten and even out skin tone
  3. Provides skin with trace mineral elements and precious herbal extracts such as ginseng, angelica and gingko
  4. Lightens and prevents freckles, dark spots and pigmentation

For these 2 products, i am generally very satisfied because i honestly love products ¬†that feels light and dewy on my face. However, it might be a little pricey compared to the other products of the same range in the market. If there is anything i dislike about the product, it will be the packaging of the Serum. I would recommend my friends to try out though. ūüôā IMG_20140806_7

IMG_20140806_6The above 2 pictures ( me in black) are not edited nor filtered. I did not have any make up on besides drawing my brows, pictures was taken after using the Bio essence Tanaka White 4X Intensive white serum and SPF20 Cream. Pictures are taken under normal room light.

So, anyway, there are so much to update and i have to go and do some work right now, pictures shall do the work yes? ūüôā

IMG_20140725_1 IMG_20140726_1 IMG_20140805_1Like super alot of selfies. Yah i know, age is catching up and selfies technically should be left for the younger ones but really, i like selfies. LOL!

IMG_20140731_1

This 1 is worse, it looks like some kind of ad. HAHA, actually this was taken specially for the Review for Bio-essence Tanaka white range.  Like i said, the product is really not bad.

IMG_20140728_1Random #carparkootd shot. The BF is getting better at taking pics (only when he has the patience to, tsk)

IMG_20140728_2The Sis chopped off her hair. I think it suits her though.

IMG_20140801_10Some random shot during 1 of the weekend dinner night out. I am gonna blog about the dinner place very soon because they serve really good Pork and is quite affordable (no GST nor service charge) in my opinion. (coming from some1 that does not fancy Pork)

Oh, ¬†that is my bare face, eyebrows not drawn, hair clipped up like an auntie. Wana say thanks to Aunt for the cute VS pouch. ūüôā

Processed with VSCOcam with p5 presetI major love this Kyrra white knit top (Currently the top seller) by LOVEIGE. It is from the new launch – The POISE Collection

Food was really not bad, i would rate it 7.5/10. The spread is quite ok but it will be better if there is more variety. However, the pricing is totally justifiable.

Tried this DVD rental machine the other night with Johnnie. Not too bad, just lack of variety of shows. Also, 1 of the discs can’t work – bummer. Wasted my $1.40 but if you are a new user, the first disc on the ¬†first night is FOC. I know people download shows nowadays and thus it is quite fun to try the oldschool way of renting shows. Actually, it was just my problem with the internet connection and thus i can’t really use internet at home now. LOL. Bummer. IMG_20140806_9

20140723_200258I must really give credit to OLD TOWN at East Coast Park. Look at the above, the pictures are taken before we touch a single piece of food on the plate. Overwhelmed with hunger, we have no choice but to gobble these crap down. Quantity, i have nothing to say as you can already see  that the bread is twice as big as the chicken chop and the cheese is ard 1/8 of the saucer.

We already waited 1/2 hr for the above and really do not want to wait for another 30mins for nother plate of crap. If i were not that hungry, bitchpls, i would def make a request to change the plate of…

I am not a spoilt brat but i paid and get shit service n this insulting plate of  ???? Sighzzz

Anyway, on a happier note. LOVEIGE has launched the latest collection, you might want to dropby and  take a look. The collection this time is really versatile and prettayyyyy. I included some pics for you, but you may head to http://www.loveige.com to look at the measurements and etc!

Oh, did i forget to include that the clothing are retailing at really affordable pocket friendly prices. Totally justifiable, quality is amazingly thick and good compared to some other shops out there.

IMG_20140801_8 IMG_20140801_5 porUpcoming, this Porcelaine shift dress fits UK4 РUK12. I am a UK8 РUK10 (for H&M) and thus it looks fitting on me. It will be looser on a smaller girl and fitting on  the curvy ones (UK 10 Р12). Both looks awesome in my opinion. Very Pretty prints and made of quality neoprene material that is rather cooling.
