REVIEW: ARITAUM Real Ampoule Highlighter

aritaum real ampoule highlighter

I recently went on a makeup bag replacement binge, and swapped out my Watt’s Up highligher for the Aritaum real ampoule highlighter. The korean highligher reminds me of drawing markers, with a click button on the end.

While I thought the packaging was innovative, the product did not entirely amaze me. 😦

REVIEW: W.LAB Sebum Out Oil Control Mist

W.LAB Sebum Out Oil Control Mist

Hands up if you live in a hot & humid country. Hands up (again) if you have been actively looking for something to curb the 4-hour post-makeup oil slick.

That’s me, and I believe I am not sorely alone. I think I can safely say many girls will agree that finding a reliable oil control product is akin to sifting through a mountain of well, oil control products.

I have found a couple of saviours (like MUFE’s setting spray, UD’s de-slick) but those are fairly pricy. So in this post, I’m going to share about a more reasonably priced K-beauty oil control mist from W.Lab

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. πŸ˜€

REVIEW: 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: 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™‚

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! πŸ™‚
