Kim comment:

Receive this nail polish at 14/10/2011 by Yuberactive , kinda shock by its quality after apply.Maybe  i am not a manicure lover so i never heard of this brand before. . i found this nail polish brush is thinner than the Rimmel london 60second nailpolish , which  easy to apply and control . And without any topcoat , the blue colour still look so shiny and beautiful , it did have its quality even with a average price among of those branded nail polish .The nail dry speed is consider longer than normal . Recommend to all of you if you seeking for a average price with a good quality , durable nailpolish =)





I like its name: blue it ~


Thinner brush compare with Rimmel london 60second nailpolish


Simply apply nailpolish without decoration look so cool too =)


Pros: Colour quite sharp , affordable price with good quality, this colour will make your skin look fairer =)               (这个颜色有使你的手指更白皙的显白作用)

Cons: Take abit longer to dry

Decoration with sticker  , look so cute , isnt it ?(this picture source: website  review)

Hmm thinking of how to review this to you guys And one idea cross my mind. =p


Have you drink enough water today?

Our body needed 8 bottle water to hydrate and maintain our life. it apply to our skin too. That's the reason why Bonanza Active Moisture Membrane KUM gel mask (◆ 保湿冷敷剂) exist =)

In order to ensure i can maximise the result of the mask , i do some research on the i-young dream website.

                                                                A pot of gel -type mask



Apply at least 0.5cm thick layer , the skin do have the cooling sensation.


My skin type: Oily , big pore , acne- prone,sensitive skin


After read the instruction, i decided use few days to try this mask .


1st day 17/10/201-- without refrigenerated, weather hot, apply at best mask time: 10pm plus

Just simply apply the mask without refrigenerated.maybe that day the weather is hot or i apply not thick enough (instruction require user apply at least 0.5cm thick ) i don't feel much cooling sensation at all .This mask is mild didnt stimulate my sensitive skin.After 30min., when i wash off this mask i found it really a thick layer mask, need use a little more time than normal mask then can wash it off. I can feel my skin is more bouncy and smoother.

2nd day 18/10/2011-- without refrigenerated, apply serum before mask, weather is normal , apply at 11.00pm.

Learn from 1st day lesson, this time i decided "strictly follow "the instruction , i apply my clinique whitening serum before the mask. and apply a thicker layer at least 0.5cm . And surprising i found there is really got cool sensation without refrigenerate !! =D
After 40min. i wash it off, i pinch my cheek and i can feel my skin is so smooth ~ woot ~ and i sense my skin elasticity is increase at least 15% . I never know just a different way of apply mask then the result can be so different ~~

3rd day 19/10/2011 -- refrigerated , apply serum before mask, weather is normal ,apply at 11:00pm

 hoho, i am quite curious the result of this method . And i cant wait to enjoy my cool cool mask time.I overlook i am having a sensitive skin, the instruction got mention sensitive skin not suitable for refridgerated mask because it may too cold for sensitive skin. Therefore i found my cheek really got a little bit red .But luckily when i wash it off , i can feel my skin is smoother and firmer than second day. Even my nose skin also smoother . And the redness is gone after that.


PROS
Excellent result in restore elasticity of skin, and smooth the skin .Mild recipe suitable for all skin type.Gel mask can talk anytime dont have the disadvantage of mud mask .

CONS
Sheet mask will be more convenience for busy office lady. Not much whitening effect on my skin.(maybe need take longer time to achieve whitening result as i only try for few days )


I really feel i found a great product through this review chances given by I young dream =) thanks alot ~


For any beauty interested to buy , Bonanza Active Moisture Membrane KUM gel mask retails at RM109.90/250g and RM179.90/550g is available online at IYoungDream or their retail store Comian at Sungai Wang Plaza, Kuala Lumpur.

Soap of the day: Soap gallery 皂工坊

12 oct 2011wrote:

last time i got mention gals also can use soap wash face at my blog community , not only guys =p still remember?
this time i gonna tell u which brand i 've been trying for last few month .For johor bahru reader, surely will know about KSL city. there is a shop called " soap gallery 皂工坊" at ground floor.Other state reader may not know this shop, some media like oriental daily news, straits times,nan yang siang pao etc has introduce this soap before .

soap gallery official introduction from their leaflet : our handmade soap is mild , fragrant, and friendly to your skin.using the cold process method. we incorporate a variety of oly the highest grade vegetable oils including olive, palm, coconut, rice bean,sunflower, and other exotic oils with rich butters.we add in essential oils, herbs , grains and natural botanicals to produce soaps with a rich, creamy and luxurious lather.
(contain no SLS 起泡剂, no animal fat, no alcohol, no preservative)



Start using this because i trying to less consume of those paraben product , when i seeking a natural and reasonable price product among of the origins ,tns skin lab , i will recommend this to all of you. The soap in the soap gallery all using the natural ingredients and essential oil, the coconut oil replace the SLS .thats why the counter lady always say their soap can use for body and face as well.(but i feel also depends on the soap function, some soap is more suitable for face rather than body even can apply to whole body ^^) No preservative can last for 1years. For oily skin face, i will recommend bamboo charcoal soap, (price range: RM15.90 , member price can less 10%)after using it i feel my skin will more fair and clean, not dry out my face too . For dry skin reader , i will recommend the avocado soap as i found it quite moisture to my body ^^
stilll got alot soap i cant list down here.

Price: RM75

Kim comment:

In fact, i am not a mascara lover, i only try few brand before. And the reason why i hate to put on mascara is because everytime it did a good result on my eye lashes but ... i will suffer when i need to remove those make up, i have to put in great effort to do it until my eyelashes drop few, then i noticed still cant remove it completely , its a nightmare to me !! i wonder am i the only one have this kind of experience. >.<



therefore when i know this product can be easily remove by warm water , i was so happy~



This mascara accompanied with my natural long lashes make my lashes become longer, curler ,black .just like the comic gal eyelashes~ (similar to above comic gal =P ) haha,
the most important thing to me is bath warm water already can remove it,(no need using any make up remover) ,very convenient . no more harassment, save times to office lady.

therefore even the price abit pricey i still will consider to buy one =)

to me, buying a cheap and ineffective item only wasted money. i will prefer a good product if i feel it worth the price.

anyone interested feel free to have a look on clinique counter , i noticed there are many different mascara with different function .

Personal review (after using >90days)



After i rub it, it appear as a waterbase mousse.






Spread the waterbased mousse, it quicky absorb by skin ,appear shimmering on my hands.


my skin type: oily , pimple prone , sensitive skin

I bought my 1st piece biore uv aqua rich watery mousse SPF50+/PA+++ at watson store.When i 1st time tried this product, i 've already in love with it,let me explain why =) .
Normally i tried high spf sunblock , around evening my face already become a " hyper " oily and shining face(in-door environment) , and clog my pore seriously. But i found this product , even evening ,my face still remain shine free ,it also doesnt clog my pore as well. I like its waterbased texture, non sticky /greasy and having a pleasant light lemon scent. When i apply to my face, it provide a light shimmering effect, and easily absorb by skin. Furthermore , Hyaluronic Acid is help to lock the moisture too.(good for the office lady work in air-conditioning environment). The most important matter, it wont "stimulate" my sensitive skin ,therefore i will continue support this product =)

product pros: reasonable price, waterbase , high spf , non sticky / greasy , easily absorb by skin , skin remain clean and clear over 7hours (in-door) .

product cons : this product contain alcohol and fragrance may cause skin allergy.(gentle reminder: test on hands/chins over 24hours to avoid buy " wrong product")

product rated: **** (4 out of 5 star)
