Dr Wu Intensive Hydrating Gel With Hyaluronic Acid


My Experience

This translucent thick gel is light gold yellow color like cooking oil, and has a pleasant scent.  It is very soft and shiny, that reminds me of lubricant. 

Dig out two fingers, apply on my left and right cheeks. Spread it on to my entire face, eyes and neck. Rub in circular motion and pat till it is fully absorbed into my skin. It leaves my face with the sticky feeling. After sometime, the stickiness will disappear.

After two weeks, my cheeks feel smaller, probably it is firmer.  My skin is well hydrated.  But I noticed many breakouts on my cheeks and jaw area.

So, whenever I use this gel, to prevent breakouts, I will definitely apply a thick layer of pimple gel on my entire cheeks and jaw area.

Himalaya Herbals Neem Face Pack


Ingredients :

My Experience

I have been using this mask for a very long time, at least 10 tubes or more. 

This very dark green clay mask is very thick and has a strong herbal neem scent.

It comes with a convenient flip cap.  The mask will cause a mess on the cap, and I prefer to wipe it off.  

It is really difficult to hold on and squeeze the thick mask out of the broad tube.  I have to use both hands with all my mighty strength to squeeze it out.  

After washing and scrubbing my face clean, wipe dry. Apply the mask onto my face and neck. This mask is so thick that It is difficult to spread it out evenly on my entire face.

It dries up fast, but I will still leave it on for half to one hour, before washing it off with water.  After it is dried, it looks and feels like cement.  After rinsing off the mask, there is no need to wash my face again with a cleanser.  

The dried up mask cracks easily and tiny pieces will fall off my face.  This happens when I applied the mask too thick.  Or when I talked, even the slightest facial movement, the mask will crack.   

It is really difficult to wash the dried mask off my face as it sticks to the face.  I need to pat quite a lot of water onto the dried mask to soften and dilute it, then rub and rub in circular motions.  As I rub, I will ensure the mask do not enter my ears as it is very difficult to wash away the mask from inside the ears.     

Be careful not to let it get onto my clothes, it so difficult to wash it off.  Many times, it leaves a stain.

Washing it off in the sink, will cause a real mess in and out of the sink. I do not enjoy cleaning the mess. So I prefer to use it during bath time, rinsing it off under the shower.

After washing, I see brown patches of mask on the bathroom’s wall and floor.  I need to wash it off immediately, otherwise the mask will dry up on the tiles.  Cleaning and scrubbing away the dried up mask on the tiles is so tedious.

After masking, my skin feels real fresh and clean.  It is obviously clearer, brighter, oil free, my cheeks are definitely firmer and my pimples are dried up.

When I use it every day, it will not dry up my skin.  Whenever I see pimples on my face, I will apply it on these parts only, it dries up the pimples within one application.  

Nowadays I am rather lazy, so I use it once in two weeks or a month or only when I see pimples on my face.  

I prefer using paper masks, it is more convenient and will not cause a mess.  I can walk around the whole house and lay down on the sofa.

Blog Awards

I really honoured to receive these 6 awards from Dazzler. Thank you sooo much for awarding them to me.

The rules are

1. Link back and thank the person who tagged you.
2. Post seven things about yourself and answer the list of favorite questions.
3. Pass these awards to 15 bloggers.
4. Notify the lucky bloggers who got these awards.

7 Things about me

1. I am a simple and quite type Chinese lady who is born and raised in Singapore.  Probably you have noticed, I do not picture myself on my blog as I am not pretty and I look awful in photos.

2. My daddy is a Malaysian and has long ago gone to heaven.His mummy is a Nyonya who is always in Peranakan nonya kebaya.  I think his family came from Indonesia, his daddy seemed to be one.  They too are in heaven.Infact his daddy passed away long before I was born.
My mummy’s mummy came to Singapore from Hong Kong with the help of a matchmaker.  I have not seen my mummy’s parents before, as they passed away before I was born.
I must have many relatives in Malaysia and Hong Kong.
Now, I know why people say, those who have the same surname are 五百年前是一家人 “Five hundred years ago, we are one family”.

3. I love to blog, but often I have too many posts in my draft folder that I do not know what to post first.  I am spending too much time on taking photos of the products as I want them to look really nice, so I will retake and retake until they are almost perfect.  Taking pictures with my old Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX01 camera is really difficult, it does not give good quality photos anymore.  
I know I do not write well as I am not good at expressing myself, but I will do my best and hope for everyone’s support.

4. I love samples and contests, and hope to win them all.
You must be wondering, why I have a few sets of the same samples and prizes.  They actually belong to my sisters and cousins who love samples and contests too.  We entered whatever we come across and often shared the winnings.
Since they do not own beauty blogs, they will pass their samples and winnings to me for reviewing and photo shoot to post in my blog.

5. I love to try out new products, and many of the products in my blog belong to my family members and relatives. They always bring me their unwanted products and lend me their new products to review in my blog.

6. I am really scared of bees, lizards, cockroaches, especially the flying ones, and dislike all insects.  But I do not want or have any intention to harm them.  So I will capture them and release them elsewhere.  As for the cockroaches which I am most afraid off, I will get my mummy or hubby to do the catching and releasing.

7. I grew up with animals.  My daddy is an animal lover, who raised birds, fishes, tortoises and cats.  My cousins have dogs, cats and rabbits.
I do not really like these animals during my childhood days.  As I grew older, my feelings toward them changed.
Infact, when I was young, I am allergic to them, being near them caused me itchy red patches on my skin and my eyes got terribly itchy.  As I got older, the allergies gone.
Now, I have a really soft spot for animals and am really upset that homeless strays are being put down.  I dream to own a big plot of land to build a sanctuary for the unwanted and abandon animals.  A sanctuary with a no kills policy.  These strays can either be put up for adoption or live still they pass away.

The Body Shop SHEA Shower Cream

My Experience

This beige shower cream is very creamy and lathers to very rich bubbles.

It comes with a convenient flip cap.

Squeeze out half a palmful and add water to lather to bubbles.  This is enough to wash from my ears to feet.

After bath, I do not feel my very dry skin is smooth and well moisturized.  

But, I like it that it leaves my skin a mild pleasant shea butter scent, which lasts a long time.
