REVIEW: LUSH Santa’s Belly Shower Jelly

lush santa's belly shower jelly

“It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas..πŸŽ„”. Yes, 2017 is coming to a close and it has been a really good year. To get into the spirits of things I popped out my Lush shower jelly, aptly named Santa’s Belly.

While I’m progressively working through my stash, the product I have is not of the latest packaging. The newest Santa’s Belly is resembling a bit like a Pokeball, though I know it’s meant to look like Santa’s signature costume with the belt.

Did I enjoy it? Yes. Will I want more of this? Why, yes!

REVIEW: Secret Key Angel Kiss Face Coating Cushion #23 Dark Angel

secretkey angel kiss face coating cushion #23

Season’s Greetings all! I can’t believe that 2017 is coming to a close, what a journey it’s been. While I am nowhere near exhausting my stockpile of beauty knick knacks, I found some time to write a review on the Secretkey Face Coating Angel Cushion in #23 Dark Angel.

I’ve had this sitting in my stash for a while, so I’m not too sure if this particular item is still available in the market. With my recent infatuation with Secretkey’s miracle fit concealer, I had pretty high expectations for the cushion in terms of coverage.

Now, I’m not sure if this cushion is the same as the Tattoo Cover Cushion (although I want to say it is), neither do I know if refills under the same brand fit universally across pacts.

Long story short, if this is indeed the same as the tattoo cushion, I say buy it. πŸ˜€

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

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.Β  πŸ™‚

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

STGCC 2017 HorNest Happy Hour at XY Bugis Hotel Singapore

Happy midweek everyone πŸ™‚ 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. πŸ’„
