House of Holland, Nail Rock and Eylure Lashes

Recently Watsons and Guardian launched a series of House of Holland fake nails, Nail rock and eylure lashes... they are fun and so cute to look at!

Review : Hada Labo 3-in-1 Arbutin Whitening Perfect Gel Moisturizer

Hada Labo, a very basic products for all skin type including sensitive skin ( at least for my case, I have no irritation when using Hada Labo products)(review)

Recently, Hada Labo launches the NEW 3-in-1 Arbutin Whitening Perfect Gel for fair, bright and bouncy skin! Fast absorbing and non-oily in texture, this whitening gel boosts 3-in-1 skincare product benefits of Essence + Moisturiser + Paper Mask!

Hada Labo 3-in-1 Arbutin Whitening Perfect Gel contains 3 trinity efficacious ingredients that penetrate within and work on the skin synergistically:
  • Natural Arbutin: High concentration levels at 3% of Japanese pharmaceutical-level Arbutin to offer effective whitening results. Enhances skin fairness and targets dark spots.

  • Efficacious Vitamin C Concentrate: Proven anti-oxidant enhances collagen production, inhibits the appearance of dark spots and reawakens the appearance of dull skin.

  • Hyaluronic Acids (HA) and nano-Hyaluronic Acids: HA is a natural component found on skin. The duo-HA molecules instantly hydrate and lock-in moisture, keeping skin soft, smooth & bouncy.
Fair, Bright and Bouncy skin from within with Hada Labo 3-in-1 Arbutin Whitening Perfect Gel

As usual a very neat, clean and simple packaging

Gel texture very light and moist

Oh gosh, I cannot remember how long I've tried this products!!
About 3 weeks I guess~ I kinda lost track of time when I'm busy trying to catch up with the latest season of "Pretty Little Liars" and also with my sister - oh and she just gave birth on Monday~ Wee~ I got a adorable niece!!!! (kekekke~ #happy)

Anyway... this product have been working so well on the "moisturizing" department that I can't wait to do a review on it (normally it will took me more then a month or when I'm almost finishing the product).

Hada Labo always work well on me.. the product range is quite basic - even the whitening one doesn't feel too rich nor harsh on my sensitive combination skin.

The Hada Labo 3-in-1 Arbutin Whitening Perfect Gel Moisturizer is in a moist gel texture - very moist and easy to spread around the skin.

It does feel really "sticky" when I try to pat the moisturizer into the skin.. and when the moisturizer absorbed, skin feel velvety smooth and soft.

Keep my skin hydrated the whole night and when I wash my face in the morning(or when I woke up) .. it still had a firm of "slimey" texture when my skin touches water! (Love that protective layer!)

After using a few days.. my skin doesn't feel dry and start to feel really nice and hydrated!! Sometimes becos of a change of weather, my skin will feel abit dry.. but lately I do not experience any and my skin is quite good recently.. makeup application is a breeze ~

Doesn't cause any skin irritation nor breaking-out
My skin does look a little bit brighter (which make my post-acne scars less visible!)

Over all- I really enjoy using this gel moisturizer - and I didn't use any hydrating serum or toner/lotion together with this product. My skincare routine is super simple when I'm using the Hada Labo 3-in-1 Arbutin whitening perfect gel moisturizer.

 (After cleansing my face, I apply eyecream, Hada Labo Perfect gel moisturizer.. and twice a week, I will apply Bliv off with those head on my nose (T-zone)

Review : L'Oreal Paris Hydra Fresh Hydrating refreshing creamy foam

Cleanser is something we cannot do without if we wanna have a clean and fresh face ~ So lately I have been trying alot of different cleansers and you gonna see alot more review on "cleanser" in the near future~

So in this post, I will be talking about L'Oreal Paris Hydra Fresh Hydrating refreshing creamy foam. (Read more about this range of products)


The cleanser is in a icy pink shade - look and feel quite thick before I mix in with water

Lately, I have been rotating cleansers in the shower (I did not wait for another one to finish to start a new cleanser.. lolx) BUT, I do give a good period of time to try one before I start rotating. By doing so, I can "double comfirm" how each cleanser works.

So after using almost half the tube of this cleanser - I'm pretty sure on how I feels about this~

  • Very creamy
  • Lather into a thick foam (not those fluffy airy type)
  • The denseness of the foam feel quite nice on the skin
  • Cleanse really well - have the squeaky cleans feel but skin doesn't feel tight nor dry
  • Doesn't cause any skin irritation (no breaking-out from using also)
  • Has a very nice refreshing scent (grapefruit)
The cleanser is good enough for dry (cos this is not too drying) and sensitive skin - and the squeaky cleans feel are a hit for oily and combination skin. So I'm happy to say this works for all skin types.

When I towel dry my face, skin doesn't too tight nor dry - skin feel soft and smooth (like it)
I'm just really glad that most "new" cleansers that I've add into my cleansing routine are pretty good and doesn't make my skin suffer!

Hydra Fresh Hydrating Refreshing Creamy foam
Price : SD$12.90 (125ml)


L'Oreal Paris Hydra Fresh is available all L'Oreal Paris Counters (Watsons, guardian, John Little and ects....)

Introducing BeautyBiotics Dream Cream series

A brand new generation of intelligent skin caring cosmetics, BeautyBiotics is launching this week! An Innovation + Science based skincare that doubles as a skincare and makeup range with all-in-one benefits. The brand stands for immediate skin fix, fuss-free looks with instant aesthetic transformation.

It's always fun to try innovation products (NEW one I means) ... though this range doesn't look too special - but the clean and neat packaging (I think it's the combination of white, red and black) makes this range look so interesting.

BeautyBiotics, an exciting new range of skin-caring and dermatologically tested cosmetics has finally hit the beauty product shelves in Singapore. BeautyBiotics is positioned as an intelligent beauty aid to offer advanced anti-aging beauty care that aims to target common skin concerns such as hydration, whitening, and minimizing fine lines and wrinkles.

Inspired by the modern lifestyle led by today's busy women, BeautyBiotics was created to simplify the beauty routine of modern women. This new generation of intelligent dermatological cosmetics contain efficient formulas that multitask as well as modern savvy women do. Beauty Biotics delivers innovative clinically proven ingredient technologies that take on a number of healthy skincare benefits while remaining kind to your skin - every product by BeautyBiotics is dermatologist tested and suitable for sensitive skin types. It is time to get smart on your beauty routine.

All of BeautyBiotics’ products have been formulated through an extensive scientific research and development process in Japan. It adopts a no-nonsense, intelligent and focused solution for our skin’s needs, which is translated through its minimalist and clinical packaging.

To kick off its brand launch, BeautyBiotics is introducing its five powerhouse products. Under its
makeup range – the BB/CC Cream, BB + Nano Luminescence Mineral Pearl Powder and the UV White Nano Mineral Powder, all which have the common properties of being ultra lightweight makeup with powerful, hydration as well as sun protection factors.

Under its skin care range are two highly innovative skin cleansers, the Exfoliating Jelly and Collagen Cleanse designed to encourage skin cell regeneration and restoration of skin radiance
instantly after each cleanse

BeautyBiotics Dream Cream Exfoliating Jelly
Price : SD$43 

The Exfoliating Jelly is an advanced enzymatic facial peel that gently exfoliates thanks to its fruit-derived AHA + BHA enzymes, restoring clarity and newfound luminosity to skin. Each massaging motion lifts away dead skin cells to reveal the radiant youthful skin beneath, preparing skin to absorb nutrients fully.

This dermatologically formulated peel is gentle on skin, so your skin enjoys the benefits of a facial peel minus the irritation or downtime.

Ingredients list~

BeautyBiotics Dream Cream Collagen Cleanse Regeneration Daily Facial Cleanser
Price : SD$43

The Collagen Cleanse Regeneration Daily Facial Cleanser boosts a unique water activated crystal formulation that releases Nano-Collagen into your skin. The cleanser comes first in a powdered form, which is then turned into a foaming cleanser when mixed with water. The foam particles created by the Collagen Cleanse are so fine that they can thoroughly remove impurities from the pores, yet the release of Nano-Collagen keeps the skin well hydrated.

The end result - every time you cleanse, you help your skin to regenerate its collagen and elastin, leaving it deeply cleansed without stripping its natural oils.

 Ingredients list~

BeautyBiotics Dream Cream UV WHITE 
UV Protection & Whitening Mineral Powder
Price : SD$49

Another one of BeautyBiotics’ multitasking hard workers, the UV White mineral powder is an intelligently created powder that provides sun protection of up to SPF 50/PA+++, and an effective whitening treatment with its whitening Nano mineral powder ingredients. The best part of the UV White powder is that it is a very lightweight, easy to apply powder that comes in a nifty compact container and sponge applicator. It is definitely a more convenient alternative to the usual thick and sticky sunscreens we have currently.

In addition, the UV White Nano Mineral powder has Nano-collagen, Hyaluronic Acid and Alpha Arbutin skin nutrients that infuse into skin continuously, helping skin regenerate, reduce pigmentation and lighten dark spots. So just like the modern woman today, the UV White Nano Mineral Powder plays multiple roles of skin tone correcting makeup, sun protector, skin whitener, and repairing skin care.

Ingredients list~

BeautyBiotics Dream Cream BB+ Nano Luminescence Mineral Pearl Powder
Available in 2 type (Matte and Shimmer) 
Price : SD$45

The BB+ Nano Luminescence Mineral Pearl Powder is a perfecting powder formulated with Nano technology to deliver nourishing nutrients into the skin’s deeper layers.

The airy formulation consists of nanonized light-diffusing pearl crystals that soften the way light falls on skin to minimize fine lines, provide long lasting coverage of pores as well as other skin imperfections. The result, youthful coverage is achieved while still maintaining skin’s luminosity. In addition, the BB+ Nano Luminescence Mineral Pearl Powder is also a powder with all the skin care benefits of a cream. It hugs skin to infuse a rich skincare concoction of Nano Collagen, Pearl Powder, Ceramide and Hyaluronic Acid, which help to repair, regenerate and hydrate skin.

Ingredients list~

BeautyBiotics Dream Cream BB/CC Beauty Balm Color Corrector
Available in 3 shades (Light, Natural and Shimmer)
Price : SD$39 each

A hardworking multi-tasker, the BB/CC Cream boasts a 12 Benefits-In-One advanced formula that not only has skin whitening properties, but also good coverage and long lasting hydration for up to 12 hours. In addition, the BB/CC Cream serves as a sunscreen with a broad spectrum SPF 40/PA+++. With the BB/CC Cream, wearing makeup and skincare is no longer a multi-step process because all one needs is a single application of the BB/CC Cream.


Ingredients list~

Will be trying out and do a details review in the near future~

BeautyBiotics Dream Cream series is available exclusively at leading Watsons stores.

The Body Shop Vitamin E Overnight Serum-in-Oil

One of the many The Body Shop popular ranges is Vitamin E and they are proud to introduce the new addition - Vitamin E Overnight Serum-in-Oil.

A technical innovation that combines the power of a serum with the indulgence of an oil to replenish and recharge skin with moisture overnight. A perfect combination of potent ingredients and leading skincare technology, the advanced serum blend is light-weight and delicate, providing a fast-absorbing, non-greasy application.

The Vitamin E Overnight Serum-in-Oil is ideal for all skin types, and can be used every night, before moisturizing, or as a treatment when skin needs an extra boost. Apply on cleansed and toned skin.

The overnight serum-in-oil will keep skin looking fresh and radiance over night even when we don't get a good amount of decent sleep. So interesting right~

High concentrations of Wheatgerm oil - the highest in The Body Shop Vitamin E range.
  • Wheatgerm is the nutrient-rich centre of the wheat seed, and it is highly concentrated in vitamin E. 
  • Wheatgerm oil is one of nature’s highest sources of antioxidant Vitamin E.  

There are 4 possible ways to use:
  1. Apply after cleansing and toning, on its own as part of your night time regime.
    (Application technique refer to below pic.)
  2. Mix with night cream. Scoop out a small amount of your night cream into the palm of your hand. Gently blend together with a few drops of your Vitamin E Overnight Serum-in-Oil and apply over the face.
  3. Use occasionally as a boosting treatment
  4. Apply to targeted areas to combat dryness

Here the Vitamin E range~
I've tried the cleanser and toner before (suitable for sensitive to dry skin - the cream cleanser may be a little bit too heavy for oily skin)

Vitamin E Overnight Serum-in-Oil is available at all The Body Shop Outlets
Price : SD$42.90 (28ml)
