REVIEW: Rohto Deoball Deoderant

rohto deoball

I perpetually live on deoderant. While there are many name-brands out there promising everlasting freshness and odour-blocking abilities, I’ve never once found something as formidable as the Rohto Deoball deoderant.

Yes, it looks a little like the EOS spherical lip balm. I would like to think of this egg-shaped deoball as nectar for my pits. 😀

REVIEW: LUSH Santa’s Belly Shower Jelly

lush santa's belly shower jelly

“It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas..🎄”. 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!

[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: Althea Korea Trouble Breaker Box!

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.Althea Korea Trouble Breaker Box

Hello everyone! Today’s spotlight item is the recent Althea #18 box – the Trouble Breaker box

I was approached by the good people of Althea to review this box of carefully curated items which tackle the issue of blemishes. There are a total of 6 products in this set, and all are full retail sized. Call it providence, but the timing of this review couldn’t have come better. My complexion was not at it’s best due to a recent span of late nights; and these items were lifesavers.

Personally I feel these boxes are packed full of value – my recent favourite was the green and yellow box.

Read on for the full review, plus I have a discount code for new sign ups on Althea 🙂

REVIEW: Koelf Petitfee Ruby Bulgarian Rose Hydro Gel Eye Patch

petitfee ruby bulgarian rose hyydrogel eye mask 1

Happy Friday! Today’s review is on the Koelf Petitfee Ruby Bulgarian Rose Hydrogel Eye Patch, which I find handy for tired eyes.

I purchased this off Althea a couple of weeks back out of curiosity, and also partly because I’m going through a “rose- based” product phase now. It all started with the rose variant of the megurism steam eye mask I bought.

Needless to say, this is my current go-to item for lazy days.

REVIEW: Innisfree Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask


Hey everyone, how’s it going? I had an order arrive from Althea last week, and today’s review is on the Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask.

I love clay masks, primarily because they mostly help control sebum secretion and my skin appears to be more radiant/whitened after usage. (I don’t know if this is a placebo effect though.) Apparently this version of the mask is different from the Jeju Volcanic Clay Mask, so if you have tried both please share with me your experience in the comments section. 🙂

Lastly, I will be sharing my referral code for Althea. Yay to free credits, Althea has steadily become my favourite K-beauty spot.

Standard new member sign ups will receive SGD$20 in welcome credits. If you sign up using the referral on my sidebar –> you get SGD$5 extra, making it a total of SGD$25! Don’t miss out. 🙂

To make things sweeter, Althea is having a 15% off Innisfree event now, each order will come with a deluxe green tea balancing sample kit (while stocks last). You can thank me later.

Alright, now on to the mask review!
