Review on The NEW Senka Speedy Perfect Whip

SENKA, a brand that develop safe, environmental-friendly and allergy-free products are launching a new Mousse Cleanser into their huge range of skincare products - Speedy Perfect Whip (The mousse version of their original Perfect Whip cleanser)

SENKA Speedy Perfect Whip will be available exclusively at Watsons from 6th Feb 2014 onwards, retailing at SD$13.90 for 150ml (Refill pack SD$10.90 for 130ml)

It said that the new cleansing technology helps in removing all the dirt/impurities and other cleansing ingredients quickly and easily. Remove dirts and impurities leaving skin feeling fresh and smooth.

Instantly creates thick, creamy foam for deeper cleansing
  • Creates thick, creamy foam with one pump
  • New Cleansing Technology ::
    • Removes dirt/ impurities and oil gently and effectively without stripping away essential moisture. 
    • Quick and easy rinsing (half the time required!)
  • Moisturizing ingredient- White cocoons
  • Leave skin soft, smooth and moisturized
  • Suitable for all skin types

The foam feel quite light weight (airy) but surprisingly not too "wet" and was quite dense.

The air bubbles wasn't too huge and they were quite even sized!

After trying out the cleanser for a period of time (which is about 2 months), I really enjoy using it. The Cleanser mousse cleanse well... skin feel clean and doesn't have the drying/tight feeling.

  • Doesn't cause any skin irritation (no itchiness)
  • Doesn't cause any breaking-out
  • Skin feel soft after rinsing off the cleanser mousse
  • Skin doesn't feel tight after padding dry with towel
  • Work well with the almost any skincares (I have rotated about 2 sets of skincares and didn't cause any problems)
Skin feel clean, fresh and I like the softness of the skin. The cleanser works well on my skin, I have combination skin (mixture of dry and slightly oily skin texture) and not forgetting sensitive.

Over all, the cleanser feel good on the skin and I enjoy using it. I enjoy using cleanser that doesn't make skin feel tight or take out too much of my natural skin oil.

SENKA Speedy Perfect Whip will be available exclusively at Watsons
Price : SD$13.90 (150ml) / Refill pack SD$10.90 (130ml)

Introducing The Body Shop Moisture White Shiso 2 in 1 Brightening Eye Cream

The Body Shop will be launching a new addition from their successful brightening Moisture White Shiso Skin care range -  Moisture White Shiso 2 in 1 Brightening Eye Cream to help Asian women achieve brighter looking eyes.

The 2-in-1 eye cream not only designed with micro-circulating applicator, it also contains shiso complex to help brighten up the eye area while battling signs of fatigue around the eyes. Will be available from 3rd March 2014, retailing at SD$44.90 for 15ml.

The  Power of Shiso
♥ Tackles pigmentation
♥ Treats Acne
♥ Anti-bacterial
♥ Digestive aid

I'm always excited when I was invited to try new "eye cream" products... I love them (most of the brands) and I NEED them(I means "eye cream").... it's the ONE skincare product that I can never live without! So I want MORE (I means try more various types and brands). Oh and this eye cream feels quite soothing at first use (just initial thought on first impression).

The Premium metal micro-circulating massager feel really cooling on the skin and I kinda prefer this type of "flat yet curve" tip instead of the "ball/roller" type.

I will try out the eye cream for a period of time (mostly 1 to 2 months) and do a details review on the blog. 

At the preview - We all got a piece of furoshiki (handprinted by fictivefingers) to wrap our own media kit... a little DIY session (a fast one.. cos very easy to tie.. lolx)

We received Shiso 2 in 1 Eye cream, Moisture White Shiso Whitening serum (best seller) and the BBcream (review)

2014 Make Up For Ever Spring Makeup Collection - Arty Blossom (with swatches)

Beside summer, spring has got to be the most refreshing season with fun and fresh color collection - totally love the fresh and bright colors that wasn't too crazy. Still quite fun and bold but with a more gentle touch(lols)

This Spring, Make Up For Ever launched the Arty Blossom travel palette that contains fun and fresh colors!  You can simple step it up with the similar bold (brighter) base color to intensify the eyeshadows.

Make Up For Ever Arty Blossom Palette
Price : SD$75

This brand new travel palette is a collector’s edition that states its creativity. Printed on a “domed” label that adds brightness and volume, the iconic MAKE UP FOR EVER logo has been artily customized in springtime shades.

“The Arty Blossom palette is a manifesto for collaborative art,” says Dany. “We drew a lot of sketches featuring color filaments, like pencil strokes with a watercolor effect. It was a joint endeavor and everybody pitched in, which certainly fits the brand’s spontaneous spirit!” Another innovation is the eyeshadow formula. Proposed in six shades drawn from the palette, it was specially developed to obtain translucent color effects:

“The textures and shades in the palette come in an extraordinary new formula: the colors are pure but translucent, producing subtle dissolving effects. The new eyeshadows are less pigmented, which makes them easy to work with and more supple in terms of color results. They look great on the skin and play fabulously with the light. They are all very finely pearlized, which adds to ease of application and their gentle glow lights up the skin, bringing out the purity of the colors.” Dany states.

A new formula for strikingly sheer colors and textures:
  • The formula is easy to apply and has impeccable hold, fusing perfectly with the skin thanks to a sophisticated combination of spherical powders, micro-beads, ultralight esters and silicons.
  • The palette blossoms with strong, muted or subdued colors that can shift in intensity to make classic or abstract, subtle or artistic looks. They combine eight refreshing shades, six of which are new: the vibrant Gold Plum, the subtle Gold Beige, the springtime notes of Fresh Peach and Fresh Pink, the dazzling Gold Green and the must-have Pearly White. The two existing shades are Metallic Copper and Pearly Turquoise Blue.
  • Infinitely soft and silky, the texture can be endlessly layered. It is bright, satiny or shimmering depending on the shades and adds a veil of color to the eyelid that instantly captures the light.
  • To work the colors with subtle flair, the palette contains two professional brushes in synthetic fibers. The first is for make-up and precision work, such as applying eyeliner. The second can  be used to create modular effects, such as a halo on the eyelid, feathered colors or banana eyes.

Totally in love with all the Make Up For Ever Travel Palettes - they feel sturdy, compact and hold a good amount of shade for a various makeup looks. And the Arty Blossom is by far my fave one!!!

Smoky Lash mascara for impeccable volume
Price : SD$42

The arty side of the look is magnified by impeccably defined lashes that highlight the intensity of the gaze. They are created with Smoky Lash, a high-performance mascara with a 3D volumizing effect that gives extra length and curl. Enriched with active ingredients, the Smoky Lash formula is pumped with pigments. It comes with a brush featuring elastomer fibers implanted in a special twist design that gives coverage from the base to the tip, separating each lash and boosting the look with maximum volume.

Lashcare bonus:
The Bio-Extender and D-Pantheno

Tried this for awhile now and I can say this is totally smudge proof (NO panda eyes! Woohoo~)

Here's a look by using 3 colors from the Arty Blossom palette
Metallic Copper (outer corner), Gold Beige (Main lid's color) and Fresh Peach (inner corner)
