[Sponsored Review] Hada Labo Retinol Lifting and Firming Lotion

Hello Lovelies~
As promised, I'll be reviewing a sponsored product today that
combats against and reduces wrinkles + gives you baby smooth skin! (ノ・ェ・)ノ


Introducing the...

Hada Labo Retinol Lifting and Firming Lotion from
Hada Labo’s Lifting and Firming Range! (◐ o ◑ )


The new range of products from Hado Labo stays true to its
PERFECT X SIMPLE brand philosophy- 
using only the finest and purest ingredients without 
unnecessary addictives, colourants, alcohol, fragrances and mineral oils! (*°∀°)
This toner evens skin texture with retinol vitamin a that reduces 
fine lines and wrinkles, collagen that improves skin elasticity for 
firmer and more lift in your skin, and super hyaluronic acid that 
instantly locks in moisture for intense hydration! ('∀'●)♡
To give that youthful bounce on the skin, take the extra step to
gently pat on Hada Labo retinol lifting + firming essence. 
A powerful skin regenerating essence , it protect against skin-
aging free radicals and improves skin elastin fibre content for that ' springy' feel.

Not 1, or 2, but 3 Anti-Aging Ingredients contained
to effectively improve your skin's condition! (●´∀`)ノ♡


Retionol Vitamin A
+
Collagen
+
Super Hyaluronic Acid~
Lifting + Firming~
(PSST the panda bag in the background very the cute right right!)
back of the product label~
ALWAYS ALWAYS REMEMBER TO CHECK THE EXPIRY DATES
OF ANY PRODUCTS THAT YOU ARE PURCHASING!
Made in Japan~! The bottle contains 170ml of the product
which can surely last you for a few months with daily usage!
how the product looks like when dispensed! (〃・・〃)
A thick sticky and slightly runny texture that is semi transparent and yellowish~

Verdict:

Texture: 7/10
Was using the Garnier Skin Naturals Light Milky Lightening Dew Toner 
(I know right, what a long product name whatthefish?! trololol)
as my daily toner before testing out this product.
By comparison, the Hado Labo's Retinol Lifting and Firming Lotion 
is definitely less stickier to the touch. (o⌒.⌒o)

However the texture of the product is still quite thick and just one drop
would be sufficient for the whole face, 
do not apply too much of the product as after a few hours it will become oily

Moisturising Power: 8/10
I personally feel that the content is more to the rich side for my young skin,
with the collagen factors and such. thus I recommend
to apply this product if you really do have visible wrinkles
you wish to combat against and get rid off. else, I for one might skip this product
and go for Hada Labo's Super Hyaluronic Moisturizing Lotion
from their other range, which is more suitable for younger skin in my opinion.

Smell: 8/10
has a light medical-ish smell. |( ̄3 ̄)|
can't really pinpoint it smells like but it definitely 
would not put you off from using the product~

Overall: 8/10~
not my favourite toner thus far, as i recommend this product for
matured skin to effectively get the most out of what this product has to offer!

TILL THE NEXT,
XOXO

[Sponsored Review] Orange and Mango Mentholatum Mogitate Kajitsu Lip Balm

Hello lovelies~
Today I'm going to review the ORANGE AND MANGO
Mentholatum Mogitate Kajitsu Lip Balm~!

Mentholatum is the #1* Bestselling Lipbalm Brand in Japan,

“Mojitate” means “Fresh” and “Kajitsu” means “Fruits” in Japanese.

This “Juicy” lipbalm comes in five different fruit mixes for
you to take your pick: Strawberry, Grape and Berry,
Orange & Mango, White Peach and Lemon and Lime.
 The Mogitate Kajitsu Lip Balm series is made with Fresh Fruit Juice which
contains essential minerals and vitamins!
 It is also made with Honey, which heals and renews the lips as well~

+ UV PROTECTION! *damaging sun rays begone!*
Mentholatum~
 let thy pictures do the talking!
(psst! how do you find the colourful backgrounds used for this review?
distracting or interesting?)
 #1 in Japan! 
 how the back of the packaging looks like~
Verdict

Smell: 10/10
IT SMELLS SO BLOODY NICE!!! THE ORANGE AND MANGO ONE
SMELLS LIKE ORANGE GUMMY SWEETS!!! the kind that is sprinkled with sugar~
*lips like sugar*
seriously can't stop myself from smelling the lip balm from time to time LOL
it kinda calms me down AHAHAHA
I can say that it's the best smelling lip balm I have come across so far~

Texture: 9/10
Doesn't have an oily feeling, more of a waxy texture, glides on very smoothly upon application, thumbs up!

Moisturizing Level: 8/10
Has a slight tingly effect upon application. 


I like the fact that the lip balm also contains other moisturising boosters such 
as Squalane, Grape Seed Oil, Vitamins A and E~ 
FACT OF THE DAY: Squalane is easily absorbed,
and is similar to the natural oil on our skin. It is extracted from plants and is a highly
prized Japanese supplement. Squalane helps to reduce the wrinkles caused by
ageing and sun damage. Grape Seed Oil helps to repair the skin. Vitamin A and E
are antioxidants that reduces the ageing of the lips, and give them a healthy shine~!

However I do kinda wish that these lip balms comes with the stronger minty feeling like
the Lip Ice series (also from Mentholatum) upon application
If it has a stronger minty effect, I'll definitely give a 10/10 for this section!
Overall: 8/10~!!!
Giving it an 8 BECAUSE OF THE WONDERFUL SMELL~~~~!!!
Plus liking the fact that the lip balm is made from real fruits and 
honey to effectively nourish my lips and make them oh-­‐so-­‐kissable!

The Mentholatum Mojitate Kajitsu lipbalms retails at $5.90 
each exclusively at all Watsons stores~! Go try your favourite flavour 
and let me know how you find it~~~!!!

next up: sponsored review on something that lifts and firms your skin
to combat against signs of ageing! do stay tuned~

TILL THE NEXT,
XOXO!!!

Geo Mimi Cappuccino Brown review + Mini haul


Hello lovelies~
HOPE IT HAS BEEN A FULFILLING DAY/WEEK/MONTH 

FOR YOU LOVELIES SO FAR~ (*≧m≦*)
it's been awhile, I apologise for the slow updates 
due to my recent hectic weeks \(@O@)/
(which somewhat explains why my photo is upside down trololol)


today i'll be reviewing Geo Mimi in Cappuccino Brown 15mm (Cafe Series) WMM-600
and also a short post on some cute and CHEAP 
(must caps lock "cheap" because I have a built in antenna *self proclaim* for bargains)
stuff i recently purchased~


have done quite a bit of shopping here and there these few weeks, 
will update more of my haul worthy items in my
upcoming posts, please stay tuned! (♥ó㉨ò)ノ♡



without further ado...
presenting my review on 
Geo Mimi in Cappuccino Brown 
15mm (Cafe Series) WMM-600!
。*:★(´・ω・人・ω・`)。:゜★。
peektures of how the bottle casings looks like!
How the lenses looks like~
c-c-c-c-close ups! (((@°▽°@)八(@°▽°@)))
the lens patterns are reminiscent of a cup of cappuccino with swirly latte art,
which explains the name of the lenses range : Cafe Series~

a picture of the lenses when worn with light makeup
(just simple black eyeliner, no lashes)!
*inserts typical act cute puffer fish pouty face*
ULTRA MAN CLOSE UP! (*^ω^)人(^ω^*)
THESE ARE 15MM WHICH MAKES MY EYES LOOK SOMEWHAT ALIEN LIKE
~you're so supersonic~


Verdict:

Comfort: 6/10
These lenses are very drying on the eyes after 4 hours of wear, 
due to the large enlargement ring and diameter of these 15mm lenses.

When worn, I constantly feel that there's something stuck in my eyes, 
(you know that irritating bugging feeling when dirt enters your eyes?)
thus...I conclude that these lenses are not a good fit.
lenses with smaller diameters are definitely more comfortable!
so if you prefer comfort over enlargement, don't go for these lenses!

Colour: 5/10
These lenses are dark brown in colour, which blends in perfectly with my pupils. 

It's 90% similar to the lens design of EOS Max Gold Black when worn!
Goes well with light eyemakeup~ └(^o^ )X( ^o^)┘

however, the latte art patterns on the lenses DOES NOT SHOW UP
AT ALL ON MY PUPILS. (。・д・)ノ゙ so be warned, if you have
Asian dark brown pupils like me, 
don't expect the patterns to show up on your eyes at all. ヾ(´¬`)ノ

these lenses are perfect for those who wants an enlarging dolly eye effect
but doesn't want other to notice that they are wearing coloured cosmetic lenses!

go for these lenses if you prefer a very natural yet, dolly look! (^○^)オ(^▽^)ハ(^0^)ツ~

Enlargement: 9/10
SUPERRRRR ENLARGING!!! makes my eyes look super huge
i do not recommend these lenses for contact lens virgins because
the size of the lenses is enough to be a pain in the ass. ヽ(´Д`)人(´Д`)人(´Д`)ノ

Overall:7/10!
if only it were more comfortable to wear, and if the latte art patterns were more vivid
instead of blending in with my pupils completely 
*inserts disappointed face*

if I were to choose, I'll repurchase the EOS Max Gold Black ones instead of these lenses
as EOS is more comfortable in my point of view. GEO lenses are slightly thicker~

now onto my recent purchases!
MY NEW UBER CUTE AND CHIO (self proclaim that they are uber cute and chio) 
FLORAL LEATHER/ SUEDE SHOELACE BOOTIES~
SUPER LOVE THEM TO THE MAX!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (ノ´∀`*)ノ


even though they were one size smaller than what I was used to wearing,
i still got them because...
IT'S SELING AT A 70%+ DISCOUNT AT ONLY SGD$9.90
OMGWTFBBQ RIGHT!!! (((*°▽°*)八(*°▽°*)))♪
like seriously where to find these kind of quality shoes at such a outrageous sale price?
thats why i HAD to grab it before it was gone~



lovely when paired with spring floral girly outfits~
I like to pair them with socks teehee 
(as with my other shoes. i have a huge socks fetish)



even though they hurt my toes a lil bit but i don't care~ no pain, no gain!
lavender feather earrings~ (just wished they came without the singular beads.
those beads looks like they belong to an auntie's bracelet trololol) 

pastel pink feather earrings~


AND GUESS WHAT...
both of them are only...
SGD$0.90 cents each! (okay caps locking again cos I damn proud of myself
for finding cheap feather earrings. hehehehehe~)


if you're residing in Singapore, let me know if you're
interested in getting a pair of these babies~ 
I'll direct you to the store with much pleasure!
♪ヽ( ⌒o⌒)人(⌒-⌒ )v ♪
SHEER POLKA DOTS RIBBON BOW HAIRTIES~!
fell in love how these ribbon bows were shaped,
plus they came together with a headband:
TADAH! (^^)-(^^)-(^^)-(^^)-(^^)
i wanted to head out in this by wearing it like any other headband: across the middle
of the forehead (bohemian style?) until my mum stopped me and told me
that i looked very much like a red indian. lol #failmax

ALL 3 HAIR ACCESSORIES AT ONLY SGD$6!
GO GET THE WHOLE SET AT DIVA BEFORE THEIR STOCKS RUNS OUT
IF YOU'RE A FAN OF POLKA DOTS AND RIBBONS!!! \(^∀^)メ(^∀^)ノ
THEY ALSO HAVE OTHER STUFF ON SALE NOW~ like a 50% off rack!!!


hehehe sharing all goodies with you lovelies~
*must thank me if you manage to get this or any item in 
this post okayyy!!! BAHAHAHAHAHA* 
joking.
circular nerdy lens-less tortoiseshell frames i got recently
on the final day closing sale at one of the Anime Festival Asia convention booths~
got it got only SGD$5~ happy maxxxxxxxx cos I saw Cineleisure retailing them at $25!
thats like a whooping 80% off! ヾ(@⌒ー⌒@)ノ
also got this SGD$10 uber kawaii handphone pouch shaped to look like a 
leopard's paw at the convention too!


there's a golden shimmery bell attached to it so at the slightest shake of the pouch,
it'll go CHING CHING CHING CHING CHING till the world ends.
it's effing annoying so imma remove it.
if not i'll be a walking monastery.
*starts chanting prayers* ( 。・_・。)人(。・_・。 )
can't bear to use it so i'll save it whenever I decide to get a new phone teehee
*fluffy things makes me happy*

"lovely" necklace from Forever 21!!! A steal at only $6~
got many other colours as well and other letterings,
so rush to their accessories section (got mine from the outlet above Orchard MRT)
if you like necklaces with literal wordings~ GOGOGOGOGO! ヘ( ^o^)ノ\(^_^ )


psst...anyone knows where can I get a gold necklace with my name engraved?
have been wanting one since forever *inserts hopeful face*
Hello Kitty X Sexy Look masks I got from the *Scape flea market recently,
3 for SGD$5 only~! there's quite a couple of booths 
set up at the flea market that sells masks individually and boxed, competitively priced, 
so drop by next time at their next flea session if you're running low on masks~


have been addicted to using the Hello Kitty X Sexy Look range of masks
because I really do see whitening/ tightening improvements on my skin right after usage!
(not because of the Hello Kitty novelty factor lol though that plays a part as well)
HELLO KITTY DEMONSTRATING HOW TO USE THE MASKS
SO CUTE OMG *DIES* ヽ(´Д`)人(´Д`)人(´Д`)ノ〜♪
leopard prints cosmetic bag~ LOVE THE PREEENSSSSS

it's super spacious so i totally recommend this cosmetic bag for makeup junkies
sexy inner hot pink lining *oooohhh la laa~*

irresistible packaging (yes I am a sucker for anything that is cutely packaged)
plus its only SGD$2 MUAHAHAHAHAHHAHA

Will do a review once I try the product (can't bear to tear the packaging away lol)
wanted to stock up more on this to highlight my cheeks and eye area
but i realized that my last visit to Daiso last week, there weren't any stocks left...
*inserts depressed face*
i've purchased two~ in pearl pink and pearl white!~

[Sponsored Review] Eucerin® DermoPURIFYER Skin Care Line


Hello dearies~!
Today I'm going to be introducing to you the new range from Eucerin, 
the "DemoPURIFYER"! ≫('♀')≪
(sounds like some thing transformers will use right lol 
GO AUTO PURIFYERS! TRANSFORM AND KILL THE AUTOBOTS!)


Eucerin DermoPURIFYER Skin Care Line
The new Eucerin® DermoPURIFYER fights all 4 key factors of acne!


All products in the Eucerin DermoPURIFYER System Care line are
compatible with all commonly used acne medication and suitable for all needs
(minor blemishes, combination skin, oily skin, blemished skin, acne).
The efficacy and tolerability of all the products have been scientifically
proven in extensive clinical studies in affected patients. (。+・`ω・´)
 
I will be reviewing 3 products from the line, in this order:


1. Eucerin Dermo PURIFYER Active Concentrate 
To be used together with Active Night Care and Hydrating Care for optimum results


2. Eucerin Dermo PURIFYER Active Night Care 
For night usage


3. Eucerin Dermo PURIFYER Hydrating Care 
For day usage


LET'S GO!(/ ̄(エ) ̄)/

NEW! Eucerin DermoPURIFYER Active Concentrate (30ml $29.90)
The refreshing serum is the enhancing care acne-prone skin. It absorbs quickly, 
gently dissolves cornified skin with lactic acid, improves the flow of sebum, 
regulates the skin’s functions, refines and clarifies the appearance of the skin. 
Together with the Eucerin DermoPURIFYER moisturizer, 
it gives a boosting effect to the fight all four factors of acne. d(=^・ω・^=)b
Oil and preservative free!

What i think about the product:
the lightweight watery texture makes it easy to be absorbed into the skin~
after cleansing I will use this product and dab onto problematic areas on my skin
to improve the flow of sebum. If you have acne problems or pimple breakouts,
 I do recommend this product for you ontop of whatever products you are 
using now to further enhance the effectiveness of the products 
combined to effectively combat skin problems~ └(=^‥^=)┐

Next up... 。*:★(´・ω・人・ω・`)。:゜★。
NEW! Eucerin DermoPURIFYER Active Night Care (50ml $25.90)
The light night care with the innovative Follicle Active System provides a 
continual supply of lactic acid during the night and dissolves cornified skin, 
which promotes better flow of sebum. The refreshing cream activates the 
skin’s own regenerative capability.
Tadah~ (((*°▽°*)八(*°▽°*)))♪
 Improves skin complexion~

 and visibly reduces blemishes in 3 weeks!
 Oil free!
What i think about the product:
creamy texture! what i like about this product is that it does not clog the pores of our skin,
THUMBS UP! serves as an efficient night cream, however it might be on the sticky side if applied
too much, thus only use a sparing amount on the skin to let it breathe throughout the night~
skin feels fresh after a good night sleep with this product on!

last but not least...
 


NEW! Eucerin DermoPURIFYER Hydrating Care (50ml $25.90)


The light, oil- and perfume-free cream gel regulates the disrupted skin 
functions, provides the skin with moisture and gives a fresh, relaxed skin feel. 
The cream gel effectively reduces skin blemishes and prevents the formation of new ones. 
The result: a finer and clearer skin complexion – after only 3 weeks.

Clinical Study Results:
Eucerin® DermoPURIFYER Adjunctive Hydrating Care:
Assessment of tolerability by physicians and by patients: very good
Recommendation (by physicians): 93%
Wish of further use (by patients): 85%
HYDRATE HYDRATE HYDRATE!
the key word for good skin! \(★´−`)人(´▽`★)/
 Effective care for blemish-prone skin~
 Use this for a healthy looking, smooth and clearer complexion within 4 weeks!
 Developed by Eucerin® Skin Research
 Oil and Fragrance free~

What i think about the product:
non sticky cream texture! pale yellow in colour~ 
(colour reminds me of pus *please don't get disgusted* lol)
easy to blend into the skin, and skin feels very hydrated after application! liking the fact that
this product can be used as a makeup base to prep the skin~ 
plus the added ingredient of Cartinine controls the flow of sebum, 
works great on oily, T-zone complexions! (○`ε´○)/\(○`ε´○)


Disclaimer:
As I was just sent this products to review a week back, there aren't many
visible differences as of yet, however the products has not caused me any breakouts.
thus I do advise that upon purchase of the product, 
expect that results will be albeit slow, but effective in the long run!


for those who wants to try out the products before purchase...
GOOD NEWS! Eucerin® is kindly giving away free samples of the Oil Control Sample Set
that consists of the three products I just reviewed above!
