Introducing Bright Pack Silky Veil + Initial Review

Sometimes back, I received the than newly launched Bright Pack Silky Veil (The Japanese secret to instant snow white skin) - an amazing instant color-corrector for face and body that's boosted with wonderful skincare benefits.

I'm not too sure whether this really works...  So in this post, I'm going to do an initial review (on my hand of-course... I have sensitive skin.. I need patch test!!! lolx).  Anything that promote "instant result" just sound a little scary for me! (It's just my personal thoughts~) but I'm willing to try cos I love radiant pale skin(kekekeke~ as if I'm not fair already)


I like that they put the product in this little pink suede box 
(Love opening presensts! #sovain)

Let's unbox the cream~


A very simple and basic jar of cream~

The "marshmallow” texture which reminds me of the less thicker version of Hazeline snow 

This is just a 5cent-size (and it's already too much~)

See how "white" and thick this potion blend out to be~

I took some away and apply it on my forearm (I wanna see how it works)

Blended and smooth out
(taken with flash)

When I smooth out the cream, it has this white and brightening tint on the skin - which look like a good brightening (skin corrector) sunblock - minus the lotion shine, stickyness and oiliness - It absorbed into the skin really well and fast.

I'm quite fair to begin with.. yet I still can see a little bit of "whitening" effect on the "applied" area.

(taken without flash in day light)

Now on the forearm - using the remaining 

(Taken with flash)
Amount is a little bit more as compare to the hand - can see the "whitening" quite obvious

(Taken without flash)

My initial thoughts on this Silky Veil cream
  • The product feels quite nice on the skin
  • I didn't experiences any itchiness
  • No irritation (I leave the product on my hand/forearm for 5 hrs+)
  • Totally not sticky... Not oily
  • Absorbed really well leaving a smooth (powdery) matte finishing
  • Whiten and brighten up the skin instantly - it's not those flat white type - does look a bit radiant. (I quite like the effect.. but I'm not sure about how I will feel when it's on my face)
  • Before washing off - I still can see a bit of skin color differences - it does last... BUT.. I didn't go out.. just hanging around the house only.
I did a patch test on the back of my ear... it does feel a little bit itchy after 30mins... I have to do another patch test again before I try this on my face (skin on the face is more sensitive then the body)... if I still have itch problem, I just use this on my body (legs!!!!)

OK... that's about it, if you have any questions about this product or I miss out some "important" points ... just let me know and I try my best to answer ^_^

Mygenlife drink Bustful Nectar natural drink-type supplement drink

Lately I have been drinking various type of collagen supplement drinks or powder(because I need that extra boost to help moisture my skin), and I never ever thought that I will ever try supplement drink that is meant for BUST!

Anyway, Samplestore sent me a box of Bustful Nectar drink. They have 5 different drinks designed for slimming, Detox, Beauty Collagen, whitening and Bustful. (I was hoping I will received Detox or beauty collagen... oh well.. there is always a first! lolx)

Bustful Nectar drink is a safe and natural drink-type supplement to nourish breast tissues. It also firms up and tones the bust.


A box consists of 6 bottles of 50ml drink



Main ingredients::
  • Collagen Peptide (Patent) renders elasticity to the breasts, nourishes the ligaments to boost the bust line.
  • Pueraria Mirifica is a great source of classical phytoestrogens that supports development of bust
  • Green papaya juice has a rare enzyme that supports and simulates breat glands which is beneficial to bust line.
  • Wild Yam (Dioscoreae Rhizoma) containts phytonutrients that supports the stimulation of breast growth. In addition, it is beneficial to women's reproductive health.





Ingredients list




Direction for use: 1 bottle a day.
Caution: If you are nursing, taking medica1on or have a medical condition, please consult a doctor before consuming the product.

Keep out of reach of children
Store in cool and dry place.
*Results may vary



  • The drink has a sweet, sour and herbal taste
  • The drink is a little bit thick (like juice type of thickness)
  • Doesn't has collagen type of fishy smell or taste
  • Doesn't taste like juice... more like herbal tea.
  • The color of the drink look like herbal tea also
  • Personally, I don't like the taste.. oh well... I don't like herbal teas also (cos of the sweetness!)
  • It doesn't taste bad, I guess is the mixture of the papaya (I don't hate papaya... but the mixture taste quite funky for my liking)
  • One bottle per day and I only have it for 3 days... I don't see any visible results yet... maybe because I don't need the extra help in my bust area. (If you knew me or saw me in person... you know what I means) 
  • Easy open and drink type of drink as compare to traditional brewing
The ingredients and the mixture of fruits used in this supplement drinks are all related to bust enhancement - so I believe this will work really help especially for teen when they are going thru puberty. As for adult, it's still not too late, I guess.

Tillet Australia Soaps from tns Skinlab

Recently, my sister gave me this box of tns Skin Lab goodies... so when I open it up, 2 pieces of soaps from Tillet Australia. Never tried this brand before and somemore... I'm not a soap person, BUT I do love using good soap for cleaning my makeup brushes and sponges.

 

Tilley Australia "Magnolia and Green tea" and "Lemongrass" Soaps(100g each)
Both smell quite nice~






The soap based on the Australia website - the price range was really in-expensive.
So I believe this would cost around SD$5+/- a piece in Singapore


Have you all tried these soaps before??

Review on Tahpre Dream Cream, Wake-up call Refreshing toner and The Victory Moisturizing Lotion

Tahpre, a Korea brand I never heard before (maybe cos it's not as mainstream in Singapore?) until I was introduce to last September. Read about the brand introduction post I did back then (link)

So after all the goodness this brand promised, I cannot wait to try them out.. I have been rotating the whole set except the serum (I have too many serum opening so....)


Anyway... I simply love the pin-up girl design box packaging.. very cute!

I have been using this set if skincare on and off for about 3 months - and it's time for review.

Wake-up call Refreshing toner
Price : SD$29.90 (120ml)


Overview of the box



The toner feel quite refreshing, the texture of the toner is a little bit "thicker" then "water" .. but it doesn't feel heavy on the skin. 

It's a nice toner, without the harsh drying element of a usual "toner" (which contain a lot of alcohol), this toner feels more like a Japanese style type of lotion (pre-moisturizer lotion).

Doesn't cause any skin irritation nor breaking-out. 

Especially love the pump type of bottle!!!




Dream Cream Peptide cream
Price : SD$59.90 (50ml)



Overview of the box


Dream cream was original created as an eye cream - because of the wonderful and effective ingredients, peoples start applying the cream on the face.

Personally, I find that the cream was just a little bit too rich on me, although my skin may get a bit dry sometimes, this cream still causes some oil seed/bumps around my outer/lower cheeks. But the bumps goes away fast also.

Note: The "richness" I referring to is not the "rich" in the moisturizing factor... I believe the active ingredients may be a bit too much for my sensitive skin (too rich that it irritate my skin a bit - not in a bad way though) 

So, I only used this at night and not everyday. Mainly using it as an eye cream... but sometimes it does sting my eyes a bit when I applied a layer too thick!

The cream is more of a gel cream texture, which may feel a bit thick on the skin but doesn't feel sticky. Oily? Yes, a bit... but I like a little bit of oiliness in cream product, but once absorbed, skin feel quite nice to touch.

I do see some improvement on skin texture... I don't have much lines or wrinkle around my face - so I cannot say much about that ... fine lines are still there.. just not as visible as before.

Sometimes, when my skin wasn't feeling dry... the cream feel kinda "stuffy" on the skin.. it's just don't fully absorb into the skin... (need to tissue off the excess).








Mind Reader Night Revitalising Essence
Price : SD$47.90 (50ml)




Overview of the box

I haven't try this essence yet, once I do... I will do a review on it!



The Victory Moisturizing Lotion
Price : SD$29.90 (120ml)



The lotion is pretty light and moist, but don't get fool by its light texture, this lotion is moisturizing enough for night time (in air-con room too) - my skin doesn't feel drying the next day.

But still not as moisturizing as a good night cream moisturizer(which I very much prefer - I like cream moisturizer that is alittle bit thick in texture - cos they always make skin feel soften and smoother then next day)

I like that this doesn't causes any skin irritation nor breaking out... no bumps no redness. A simple moisturizing lotion.



Overall, I find that the products was nice to use, nothing too "special" as in the WOW factor - maybe because, I do not have much problems to begin with (except the irritating post acne marks and some dark spots on my upper cheeks.

I also like that all the 3 products doesn't have any stinging/burning sensation on "tight/flakey/dry" skin. (Which I have every now and then - my skin is weird.. not only they are combination, acne prone[more inflammation then normal pimple]... dry and sensitive sometimes... hai~)

If only the Dream cream wasn't too rich ... it would be a very nice deep moisturizing cream to use.
