I have a very bad habit of buying products and stashing them away before I even finish the dozens in my bathroom. Many times, I ended up buying and using the same products over and over again, even they aren’t doing any for me. Hence, I’m going to write down short reviews of the products I had used up every month or 2 months. I guess this helps me to use up the products, and minimize the habit of stashing products away.

Spotted a new range of liquid lipstick at the Bourjois counter at Watson’s – Bourjois Rouge Edition Aqua Laque. If I’m not wrong, these are exclusively at Bourjois counters at Watson’s… for now. Unlike its predecessor – Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet – which has matte finish, this new range features intense colour pigment with a shiny gloss finish. Continue reading

Despite I don’t wear a lot of foundation on daily basis, I find my skin looked dull, struggled with blackheads and enlarged pores on the nose and cheeks. For a long time, I procrastinated getting an electronic facial cleansing brush because of its hefty price tag for both the device and its brush head replacement – especially I’m not sure if I have the time to add another step to my current regime. When Olay came up with a cleansing brush at a much affordable price, I decided to give it a shot! Continue reading

Before motherhood, I had a skincare regime that I followed and kept up – cleanser, scrub, toner, cream, eye cream, mask, etc etc etc. Now having a 4yo in the house means she would knock on my bathroom door, yelling “Mom, can I have a cookie before dinner?” My home pampering time is practically zero. I’m sure there are Mommies out there have had such experience. We would scramble, slap on some cream and done. I have came out with this list so to make skincare routine a lot easier.
Believe it or not, I started writing this article months ago. Hence, the photos are not exactly the most updated of my current skincare routine. Continue reading
Living in a country that’s humid all year round, I have (almost) given up searching for a conditioner that conditions and yet doesn’t weigh my fine fizzy hair down. Hence when a friend recommended Percy & Reed’s hair products to me, I was not really keen. I mean I had tried oil, serum, volumising shampoo and conditioner, nothing seems to help! That explains why I bought a travel-sized conditioner instead of full-sized. Continue reading
As a sufferer of eczema and skin sensitivity, I’m constantly on the lookout of lotions, creams, cleansers and body washes that are gentle on the skin. If a body product seems to aggravate my eczema, I’ll move on to a new product. I’m pretty sure this NIVEA In-Shower Skin Conditioner isn’t a new product and I probably had walked pass it gazillion of times. What triggered me to try out this product was a photo of it on Instagram when I was searching hashtag #nivea. I thought why not give it a try!
Recently, I looked through the photos of my girl and myself when she was barely a year old. Oh gosh! I looked really drained, tired and aged. I neglected to look after myself. Mainly because there was a shift in my role in my household – I had became a Mom. My priority was my girl. I was adjusting to the change. Many times, I just didn’t feel like dolling up when I was out with her. That was because – I believe all Moms will agree – I simply had no time! Getting the little one ready to head out involved a lot of time and energy. By the time she was ready, we just wanted to quickly hop into our car and go go go! Hence, I came out with this list for all Mommies out there, especially first-time Moms. Well, at least it’s my essentials when I’m in a rush. The goal of this list is to make you look refresh and put together with 6 essential makeup, and be done in 10 minutes! Continue reading
