Himalaya Herbals is a range of natural and safe products that use special herbs carefully selected from nature.

Regular use of Himalaya Under Eye Cream helps prevent new wrinkle formation. Experience 80% reduction in dark circles and 28% reduction in under eye wrinkles in just 4 weeks. Also get a brighter and smoother eye contour. [Source]

As you all know, I love trying eyecream, and when I got this in the goodies bag from a movie premiere few months back.. I was pretty excited!(lolx)

I have see Himalaya Herbals brand at Watsons all the time... but never really try it before. I donno why.

The texture of the eyecream wasn't too thick nor rich.. just pretty average light eyecream texture.

Ingredients list... Do note that this does contain "mineral oil"(if you are sensitive to it better avoid this product)

Fragrance Free
Suitable for contact lens wearers
Dermatologocally and Ophthalmologically tested
Hypo-allergenie
No harmful chemicals
Clinically proven for effectiveness
->>Country of origina - India

->> The eyecream was pretty moisturizing.
->> Doesn't leave any oily or sticky feel
->> Didn't notice any different after using this for a few weeks.
->> Doesn't cause any irritation.
->> Didn't see any effect on brightening or minimized the dark circles..
Maybe, I didn't use this long enough? My under eye's areas are pretty drying and this wasn't intense nor soothing enough for me.. so i switched/rotate with other eyecreams after a few weeks.

This eyecream, does hydrated my under eye areas, not as soothing as some other eyecreams that I've tried. This is just a very simple basic eyecream that hydrates the skin around the areas.

More suitable for teen/young adult or combination to oily skin.

Price: Not too sure(will check and update again)

ZA Eye and Lip makeup remover (Review)


A dual-phase point makeup remover that will removes all types of waterproof and stubborn makeup.




soak up a cotton square....

Cover the cotton square on my eye and leave it for about 60secs or more.

Then lightly move the cotton square in wiping motion(left to right or right to left.. whatever direction you like) to loose up the mascara wax from the lashes before wiping it off.  





It doesn't wipe off completely on the first "soak" especially when the mascara was a super waterproof type. I just use the other side of the cotton square to lighlty wipe/clean off the residues.
Remove colors makeup pretty well.
The cleansing oil was abit too oily. But it does the job at removing waterproof and stubborn makeup.

The oil doesn't sting my eyes.
Doesn't irritation my skin, but the constant wiping was abit stressful for my eye areas (Personally, I don't like using cotton square or cleansing wipe to remove makeup... cos my skin around the eye area is abit sensitive.)




Ingredients List...

Price: SD$12.90
Available at Watsons and John Little SG

NOTW: MY CNY nail's color(????)

I donno what to name this and since I applied these around the CNY time.. so I called this the "not so creative" My Chinese New Year nail's color.

I don't go visiting during CNY... so, I'm pretty much staying at home and do nothing! Anyway, I did paint my nails to brighten up my mood.....


So hard to capture the green sheen...

Using Etude House WH001(frosty white) and layer on with PR nail color in 1(Green shimmering sheen)
(Both Korean brands)

I'm pretty alive and healthy during the eve of CNY.. Maybe I ate too much?!? lolx
