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: 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™‚

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.

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 πŸ™‚

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 gotΒ this out of curiosity, and really don’t have any idea if it’s good or.. tasty.Β 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.
