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! She is the strongest woman ever, bringing me and my Sister up and loving us unconditionally. 🙂 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 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. 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™, 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): I 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. Well 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? 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™, Hyaluronic Acid, Tranexamic Acid, Pomelo extract, minerals The benefits it brings as according to product:SPF20 to protect against harmful UV rays
- Tanaka Extract™ shields skin from external pollutants, keeps skin cool and moisturized under hot weather
- Contains Tranexamic Acid that helps to significantly brighten and even out skin tone
- Provides skin with trace mineral elements and precious herbal extracts such as ginseng, angelica and gingko
- 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. 🙂
The 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? 🙂
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.
Some 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. 🙂
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.
More pictures on my FB.
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.
I 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.
Upcoming, this Porcelaine shift dress fits UK4 – UK12. I am a UK8 – UK10 (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 – 12). Both looks awesome in my opinion. Very Pretty prints and made of quality neoprene material that is rather cooling.
Ok, i will just post these, for more, you have to head to…
or the e-tailer shop itself! Have Fun!
