REVIEW: Vichy Laboratories SkinSOS Volcanic Mask Trio

vichy SOS volcanic mask trio

HAPPY CNY everyone! I wasn’t planning on reviewing anything since I’ve been down with a nasty flu/cough bug for the past week, but on a last ditch effort to buy some Decofam (cough syrup) at Unity, I came across these. Sick or not, I was compelled to try them.

Reason(s) being:

  1. Its a trio set from Vichy (and granted, Vichy items are not the cheapest around)
  2. I needed a pick-me-up from constantly stuffing my nose with facial tissues, not to mention the incessant hacking cough 😦

Hit “continue reading” to see what I thought of these mini masks. Also, I took a shot at upping my product photo game, let me know if you have any suggestions for improvement! 🙂

REVIEW: Heidi’s 2016 Beauty Picks!

heidi-2016-beauty-picks-1

Season’s greetings everyone!

It has been a while since I last posted, and today I thought: why not share with everyone my favourite beauty items in 2016?

You can call it a year in review (beauty/skincare wise), and if some of you are still looking for that last minute Christmas gift, maybe this post can be of some help.

All these products are relatively inexpensive and work well – in my humble opinion. I will be talking briefly about my thoughts and usage experience with them, hopefully it helps if you are considering to try some of these items.

Find out more! 🙂

REVIEW: Loshi Horse Oil Moisture Cream

Loshi Horse Oil Moisture Skin Cream

Hi everyone! I’ve been so swamped over the past month but I finally found some time to blog today. Today’s review is on the Loshi Horse Oil Moisture Cream. Okay so to be honest when I heard about this, I was thinking:

“Horse Oil? What’s that? Is it horse fat? Does it smell?”

But when I was in Japan, I saw hoardes of mainland chinese tourists emptying shelves. Literally grabbing this product (and other stuff) by the armful. – I’ll sidetrack a bit. I’m Asian, I’m Singaporean Chinese but damn, when in Japan the Japanese gave my partner and I the “omg more mainland chinese” look. It’s only when we speak and then they realise from our accent that we’re not China Chinese, and magically the attitude changes into warm japanese hospitality.

In matsukiyo I had the first hand experience of witnessing two mainlanders arguing in the drugstore. One of them had swiped ALL the ebisu face masks from the outlet and the other was sore that she didn’t manage to score any. It’s embarrassing really. Employees were all stoic-faced, some had the knowing look. The “look at that unbecoming behaviour” look.

Anyway, back to the review. I bought a tub to test run the product and see if the rave runs true. Hit the jump to read more 🙂

REVIEW: Ora2 Breath Fine Spray [Orange]

Ora2 Breath Fine Spray

Today I have a random little review on a breath spray I bought in Japan. I got this out of curiosity, and really don’t have any idea if it’s good or.. tasty. I quite unabashedly admit that there are days when my breath is a little heavy, or sometimes when you run off to meet a client after lunch.. the last thing you want is your breath to reek of whatever you just ate.

REVIEW: Ora2 Stain Clear Toothpaste [Peach Leaf Mint]

Ora2 Stain Clear Toothpaste Peach

Are you a caffeine addict? Specifically, do you feel the need to have a cuppa joe in the morning? Well, that’s me. I’m pretty sure coffee is flowing in my veins. As with most coffee/tea drinkers, I face the problem of stained teeth. I mean, my teeth aren’t horrendous (in fact I used to wear orthodontic braces), but the drinks do take the sparkle out of my teeth.

TRAVELOGUE: Heidi goes to Tokyo (October 19-24, 2015)

Tokyo 2015

I’m back! It’s been a wonderful week at Tokyo, and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. Today’s post will be about my itinerary and experience in the city, so if anyone is heading over I hope this comes in handy! Note that this is not a sponsored post, I saved up for months before booking the trip. Also, there isn’t a spamload of photos but it is a wordy post. I’ll inserted in relevant photos where necessary.
