REVIEW: Japan Cow Brand Beauty Soap Moisturising (Red box)

Japan Cow Brand Beauty Soap Red

Today I’m going to talk about soap. Specifically, the Cow Brand Beauty Soap Kyoshinsha. The one I have is the red box, which is extra moisturising and costs a little bit more than the blue box, which is the regular formula.

I’ve long heard accolades about this bar soap, of it being gentle, no frills and generally good for your skin. Another perk was the price, the soap is inexpensive when compared to counterparts like shower foams and gels.

In short, after using the product for about 2 months, I’m a fan. I hoarded half a dozen of this from my recent trip back to Tokyo.

REVIEW: Skinfood Aloe Vera Foaming Cleanser

skinfood aloe vera foaming cleanser

Hi Everyone! It’s been a whirlwind in October. I travelled a bit, turned one year older, nursed a flu/cough, embarked on some side projects, and was busy with work.

I finally found some downtime today to write about the Skinfood Aloe Vera Foaming Cleanser I purchased a while back. While it’s still good to use, I’m not entirely sure if the packaging is relevant.

Regardless, please read on if you’re interested to know what I felt about this item.  🙂

[STGCC 2017]: Heidi goes to HorNest’s Artist Happy Hour gathering!

STGCC 2017 HorNest Happy Hour at XY Bugis Hotel Singapore

Happy midweek everyone 🙂 As promised in my last entry, today’s post is on the STGCC 2017 Artist Happy Hour gathering, which I had the pleasure of attending.

This event was organised by HorNest, at the eclectic XY Hotel Bugis. If you have a penchant for boutique hotels, do check this property out. It’s centrally located near town, and is a stone’s throw away from many cultural sites and local attractions. I didn’t get to visit the rooms but from a quick search online I learnt that the rooms are designed thematically, making each stay’s experience something new. XY is definitely a place I will bookmark for staycations – there’s even a pool, sweet!

With that, let’s move on to the night’s events proper.

[AFTER THOUGHTS]: Heidi goes to STGCC 2017!

STGCC 2017

Hello Everyone, today’s post is a deviation from my usual beauty and skincare reviews. It’s the time of the year where I embark on my annual pilgrimage to the STGCC (Singapore Toy Game and Comic Convention). Although the event may be well over, I thought it would be nice to share my thoughts and experience for this year’s convention.

Other than being a beauty junkie, I’m also an avid collector of toys and figures – primarily Japanese vinyl toys (sofubi), or if they fall under the colourful, and the cute. Last year I bought Tokidoki’s unicornos, this year my haul was slightly more different.

If you’ve been following my blog for a while, I previously wrote about my STGCC 2016 experience. This year was equally as fun, in fact, we were blessed with more than what we set out to accomplish. 😍

REVIEW: Rue K Wave Action Melting Moisture Lipstick (OR206 Busking Orange)

Rue K Wave Action Melting Lipstick OR206 Busking Orange

Hi Everyone! Today I have a quick review on a brand which is new to me: Rue K Wave. I did some homework on the interwebs but didn’t manage to get much information, other than the fact that this is a Korean cosmetic brand.

Anyway, I purchased their lipstick from Qoo10 – the rue k wave action melting moisture lipstick. This comes with a range of 15 shades, I exercised some restraint and purchased only one, in the shade Busking Orange (OR206).

Read on for my first impression and how the lipstick fared. 💄

REVIEW: Althea Petal Velvet Powder

Disclaimer: This is a sponsored review by Althea. All comments on the experience and first impressions of the product(s) are expressly mine, and not in any way influenced or paid for.

Hi Everyone! I recently had the pleasure of receiving Althea’s newest Petal Velvet Powder in the mail. Needless to say, Althea has been my favourite place to shop in 2017 and possibly more years to come.

It’s exciting to see how Althea has expanded and foraying into producing their own unique line of cosmetics. Debuting from the brand, the Althea Petal Velvet Powder is a micro fine loose powder that minimises the appearance of pores and fine lines, and at the same time controls sebum.

REVIEW: Make Up For Ever MUFE Step 1 Skin Equalizer

Howdy friends! It’s been a while since I last posted, and I found a little down time today to write about a face primer I recently started using.

Today’s review will be on the Make Up For Ever Step 1 Skin Equalizer, otherwise known as MUFE’s mattifying primer. I bought this from Sephora during their 20% storewide sale a while back. I don’t usually shop at Sephora, but I love ambling into the stores and checking out what’s new and wonderful.

There’s a whole range of the skin equalizer primers, 10 actually. I specifically chose the mattifying one because I have oily skin. Plus, I wanted to see if the product lives up to MUFE’s reputation. This is a 15ml half size, the full sized product weighs in at 30ml.
