[Sponsored] Purevivi Cleansing Lotion: 4-in-1 Micellar Water Makeup Remover Review
Hey lovelies!
I'm back with a review after soooooooooooo long!
I've been really busy with my life, being my last year in school as well as juggling two jobs at the moment.
Therefore, despite having so much to share, I couldn't make time =/
However, when I was approached to do a review for Purevivi's new Cleansing Lotion, I thought I had to take it up and make time to share my thoughts because this is a makeup remover, which is something that I use very often.

I'm sure I have said before that I use Bioderma in my instagram/twitter before but one of the thing that I feel kinda "ughh" about whenever I have to repurchase is the price. Thus when I heard about Purevivi, which is also a micellar water except that it is only SGD$19.90 and made in Japan, I HAD to give it a go.


My "Is it really that good yet that affordable?" face


Before I jump into the review, here's some things you should know.
Purevivi Cleansing Lotion is a 4-in-1 micellar water makeup remover which:
  • Dissolves makeup
  • Cleanses your face
  • Soothes your skin
  • Moisturizes your skin

As aforementioned, it is priced at just SGD$19.90 for a generous 500ml bottle.
Sounds too good to be true? I'm not close to being done!

The product has 5 key attributes, namely:
  • Effectiveness - Dissolves makeup quickly
  • Clarity - Leaves skin feeling matt
  • Freshness - Gives a feeling of freshness
  • Texture - As gentle and light as water
  • Made in Japan - Adheres to quality standard

It contains nine moisturizing natural fruit and plant extracts - Grapfruit, Lemon, Jujube, Apple, Orange, Lime, Cox Seed, Crataegus Cuneata and Aloe


It also has 6 Nos


They are:


My, can you believe it?
So much awesome stuff in one bottle!
Best of all, it is so easy to use!
For the sake of experimenting the efficency of the product, I intentionally put on heavy makeup.
I am only going to remove the makeup on the right side of my face to show you the difference!


All you have to do is purchase a bottle (the color looks murky here 'cos I have yet to unwrap)


Unwrap and prepare your cotton pad


Open it up


Smell it - no wait, that's just my weird habit.


Get some of the product on your cotton pad


I usually place it over for about 5 seconds for my eyes before swiping as I tend to have more stuff on my eyes than other parts of my face. Otherwise, I just swipe it off like that.


Tada! Just one swipe after 5 seconds and you can see that all my eyeshadow and most of my eyeliner is gone! The eyeliner left is where I tightlined, where I have to lift my lids a little to get it cleaned.


After my eyes, I proceed to the rest of my face.
I only used two cotton pads for half my face - 1 for my eyes and 1 for the other half of my face and lips.


If you got scared by the above picture, please remember I look like this when I go out and I am not scary


Jokes aside, I definitely see myself repurchasing another bottle after I am done because it is SO much more affordable and does the exact same thing! Sometimes after a long day out, I crash immediately instead of going to cleanse my face again with a cleanser because I am just too tired so I am really thankful that this product helps to moisturize my face after the makeup has been dissolved and removed. It works great and does a good job at the aftercare too - I cannot imagine how many pimples will surface the next day if not for this (since I get K.O-ed pretty often these days)!

So I guess what I'm trying to say is...
Go get a bottle today from selected watsons outlets and don't forget to follow on instagram them at purevivisg!

[Sponsored] Second trip to Naoki Yoshihara by Ash
Hello everyone!
Today's post will be about my new hair and I decided to do something different again. I had feedback about how it was troublesome to read the English captions below the pictures with Japanese words in them (although I really do not see how much of a trouble that can be...) 

So for this post, if you mouse over the pictures, they will become the English version ones. Things I do for my readers... (laughs)
 マウスオーバーは英語バージョン。 読者のために...(笑)

Alright, here we go!

*If the mouseover does not work, try refreshing the page and wait for a while as the file size of the pictures are quite large, thus will take some time to load.

[Sponsored] New Hairdo by Naoki Yoshihara by Ash
Hello everyone!
I am sorry for the HIATUS but I assure you it is well worth the wait!
I spent a lot of effort in editing this post~!
I've been trying to explore different ways to blog and find one that is really "me", so to speak. 
Anyhow, let me know how you think under the comments alright?

I have not been doing anything to my hair for the longest time because my scalp has gotten really sensitive over the years of constant bleaching, therefore I decided to not do anything to it and just let it recover for the time being. It has been about half a year since I did ANYTHING to my tresses so you guys can imagine the nightmare my hair has become. 

Anyway, I was approached by Noriakiさん about being the hair model for Naoki Yoshihara by Ash, one of the leading salons in Japan for their first outlet here in Singapore and I thought that since it has been some time since my last hair affair, why not do it?

Let me take you through my journey at Naoki Yoshihara by Ash!
Since it is a Japanese Salon, I thought I will do my image entry in Japanese but you will find the translations below each of the pictures!


My hair looks so bright!
How do you guys like my new hair?
Before I take you through the whole process, 
Shall I let you guys know the place I did this first?

If you want to get some products that was used on you in the salon, you can get it there as they are on sale!


Say what! They are having a 30% off?

Not very good at English? No worries! They have a hotline dedicated for Japanese speaking customers! The number is 8722-1586. Make your appointment now!



Yay! I'm done!
I hope you guys liked this post!
I took the shots where I pulled my hair because I wanted to show how nicely the colouring was done, all the way up to the roots with no ugly staining.
Also, I know the before pictures looked different from the rest. That is because I got those photos from Atsuko-chan and it was taken outside the salon whereas all my other self shots were taking in my room, in front of my ring light.

Last but not least, many thanks to 石沢貞治さん and Ayu さん from Naoki Yoshihara by Ash for my awesome new hair! My hair cost SGD $248 before discount (X-long: Cut & wash & blow - $48, Single shade [Warm Beige] at $100 plus second tone [Pink] $50).
Remember, do make an appointment at 6333 5662 between 15 July to 30 September if you want to abuse the 30% Opening Promotion!
The number in the final image is specially for people who can only speak Japanese so don't call the wrong number!

Thanks Kazutaka Iwaiさん for the sponsorship , lovely Atsuko Satoちゃん for all her help and patience and Noriaki Tsuchiyaさん for introducing me!

Leave your comments below, loves!

[Sponsored] Vanity Trove April 2013 - Unveiled!
Ladies, time to 'fess up!
Who loves surprises?
I know I do!

You know you do too, stop lying.


I'm pretty sure many of you out there would have heard of the wonderful boxes that comes with a monthly subscription fee and will pop up right at your doorstep at the same time every month, yes?

Today I am going to share with you one of the very popular beauty box in Singapore - Vanity Trove.

For just SGD $25/ month, you get a box filled with beautiful surprises delivered right to your doorstep.

I personally think that the best part about beauty boxes is the element of surprise. You never know what you will find when you open up the box.
I did a post on Vanity Trove before last year, which was an event they had in conjunction with Philip Wain.
I believe I did mention one of the things I really love about Vanity Trove boxes is the design of the box - so reusable! I have been using the trove I got last year to store my mask!

Photo of the trove from last year's Tangs Beauty Box.
I look so sick because I was... I took these photos immediately after I got home from the event.

Anyway, I think the design of the box is brilliant! I've subscribed to other boxes before in the past but I think that Vanity Trove really understands what women really want - it's not just the surprise, we love the pretty boxes that house the surprises and want to keep them too! 
The problem is that we always do that and end up with way too many boxes which sometimes don't fit anywhere or have any use for at all. Oh, the Love hate relationship with boxes - not with Vanity Trove though since it opens up like a drawer, making it really compact and smart to store our things as we can retrieve them without hassle.

So, what is in the April Trove 2013?

Time to unveil the surprise...

Ta-dah! Information about the products inside the Trove! Not teasing you, really. From the product leaflets available, I'm sure you already know what brands to expect in the Trove, right?

Oh yes, Vanity Trove has their very own little booklet!
In it contains many useful information such as:
Product information of items in the Trove

Make up tips from other bloggers

Blogshop blurbs and even vouchers!

Awesome? You betcha'! 
Before you get too excited, let me share with you the contents of my Trove!

Just look at the brands and amount of products in there!
I've been hearing a lot of good feedback from friends about the products from Dr. Ci: Labo [Japanese brand too!] and I'm so glad it is inside the Trove! I believe just the products from Dr. Ci: Labo easily exceeds that SGD $25 you paid for, yes?
Well, there's even Elizabeth Arden products inside too!

You are so getting your worth out of the box this month!

How to subscribe?
Well, I believe the cycle of the subscription as well as instructions on how to sign up are all available HERE.
From the looks of it, you won't be able to get this April's edition anymore as the subscription closed in March.
However, looking at how amazing the contents are, I'm sure you will not want to miss May's Trove!
They've teased about it being something to do with Floral Notes...
I know I just got my April Trove but I can't wait to receive my May Trove already!

Head down to Vanity Trove's Website to subscribe now and don't forget to "like" Vanity Trove's Facebook Page!

[Sponsored] Vita Green Lingzhi - beauty and health from inside out.
Hi girls!
Today, I will be introducing to you a supplement product from Hong Kong which has been the best selling product of its kind for 10 years in Hong Kong itself!

Vita Green Lingzhi (Reishi) [SGD $129/bottle of 72 capsules]

I'm sure many, especially chinese, would have heard of Lingzhi.
So, why is Lingzhi [Reishi] such a popular herb?


Reason why it is so popular amongst all is because it not only has health benefits but also beauty benefits!

Body Benefits includes:
  • Strengthen the immune system
  • Promote blood circulation
  • Gives you extra energy 

Beauty Benefits include:
  • Anti-aging
  • Antioxidant
  • Reduce allergy symptoms
  • Reduce white hair
  • Reduce age spots
  • Help sleep


Vita Green is made of six different coloured Lingzhi, each with different benefits for different organs!


It is recommended to take 1 - 2 capsules daily. Being an oral product, I decided to take just 1 capsule daily.


The size of capsules are not too big so there was not much of a problem in swallowing them. Since they are in the form of capsules, there was no herb smell, which is a plus point as I really don't like herbal smell.


After taking it for close to 2 weeks, I have to say I did not observe a noticable difference yet. I believe it's probably because I don't have a specific problem to look at for possible improvements. However, I will continue taking it as I believe that it can only do good, not harm. 

You can purchase this product at a special introductory price of just SGD $109!
The Vita Green Lingzhi can be found at drug stores like Guardian and Watsons.

Go grab yourself a bottle if you are someone interested in taking supplements. Take advantage of the special introductory price!

[Sponsored] Glomax Aesthetics Intensive Acne Medic Treatment 5
Hi guys!

Sorry for not updating you about my Glomax Aesthetics progress ):
Been terribly busy with god knows what.
[Okay fine, I've been busy with school, revision, work, and just stressed out about a lot of personal stuff that put me in a slump and no mood to even on my laptop]

Just to recap:

My fifth trip was on 30th January, 5 days after I returned from Japan.
This time, I was given a slightly different procedure during my treatment. Due to my trip to Japan, I've been out under the sun more than usual since I did a lot of sightseeing in Japan. I did put on sunblock every time before I leave my hotel but my therapist Pik San wanted to be on the safe side so she suggested a few tweaks to my usual routine.

Usually, what happens during my facial is:
1. Sonic cleansing that gently lifts impurities and dirt off skin surface 
2. Squeezing the dirt out from my skin
3. Problem areas are healed with a mild antiseptic high frequency
4. Acne IPL to rebalance the sebum level.
5. Mask [depending on skin condition, different mask will be applied.]

This time, steps 3 and 4 were replaced with vitamin penetration instead.
Vitamins help to whiten and brighten the skin, giving radiance and lighten marks.
Besides vitamin, green tea is also present, which helps in soothing the skin and have anti oxidant & anti inflammation properties.
As for the mask that day, Pik San applied the Charcoal mask for me. Charcoal mask has many functions like:
1. Purifying Skin
2. Anti Inflammation
3. Soothing
4. Skin Calming
5. Whitening
6. Stablizing Skin

As you can see, the changes to my facial procedure was all done to "heal" my skin because I was complaining to Pik San about how the weather in Japan made my skin all crazy and bumpy. Therefore, she decided to give me a slightly less intensive treatment for my skin to adapt and heal better.

I didn't take pictures right after my treatment because I think you guys already have a good idea of how it looks like [every time, it's the same...] so I believed that giving you a picture of how my skin look like at least a week later is better as it can show you how long the effects can last.

These pictures below were taken on the 6th February 2013



As you can see, my skin is not bumpy anymore, just the scars/ marks from my acne and my nose is totally clear even after 1 week from extraction of the blackheads! [I hate my nose; the blackheads are so persistent and no matter what I used, it never ever improves!]

These pictures were taken on the 10th of February 2013
Left Cheek

Right Cheek

Nose

Below my nose and chin [I tend to have a lot of breakouts at these areas nowadays and as you can see from the above picture, it is completely clear]

If you look at pictures from my first treatment, you can really see that my skin improved a lot, especially my left cheek and the condition remained well even until now.

I am going for my sixth treatment on 6th March 2013, will update you girls about 1 - 2 weeks after my treatment with my progress!

As always, highly recommend you to book an appointment with Glomax Aesthetics! [My therapist is Pik San, sorry I got her name wrong previously!]
