[Sponsored] Bioré Micellar Cleansing Water

Makeup cleanser is a required product for women who frequently apply makeup. Especially how effective it is in removing and the feeling after removing. I'm someone who consistently looking for better makeup remover. I don't like those oil makeup remover for it leaves the sticky and oily feeling after usage. *erlack*

Bioré has a new makeup remover, Micellar cleansing water. Water-based makeup removal is always one of the better options that I would go for, as it will not leave any sticky feeling. Some may say that water will not work as good as oil or milk based makeup removal.
Maybe not for eye makeup, as I always have thicker eye makeup, some water-based makeup removal are not able to clean it thoroughly. However, Micellar cleansing water is different. It is able to remove my eye makeup thoroughly with the given instructions on how to remove it. I am quite amused by the results.

Before and after using Micellar Cleansing Water
Decided to try out, before removal, you can see that I do have quite a bit of eye makeup. Pardon for the unbalanced eyes on the right. *haha* But it is definitely working for me. Micellar Cleansing Water does not leave any sticky feeling after usage, I felt quite clean and refreshed. With a wipe, it did clean out more eye makeup than some of the those eye makeup removal. (Hootts) Now I can save up on cotton pads. This is suitable for all skin types, even for sensitive skin. I've got combination skin, and it works well for me.

Micellar Cleansing Water contains the following:
  • Watery Micellar Technology that efectively dissolves and lifts of all makeup including mascara and eyeliner.
  • Natural Mineral Water from the Northern Japanese Alps for a gentle and soothing formula.
  • Enriched Collagen and White Tea Extract for brighter, softer and suppler skin.
  • Anti-bacterial formula helps prevent pimples and breakouts, and minimises pores for a clearer and more refined complexion.
Simple to use too:
  •  Pump an appropriate amount onto a cotton pad 
  • Use soaked cotton pad to gently wipe of makeup 
  • No rinsing required 
  • For eye makeup, place soaked cotton pad onto closed eyes and hold for 5 seconds before gently wiping it off
  • Repeat until all makeup is removed, and cotton pad is clean 

Viola! This explains why it is able to clean off my eye makeup. I am gonna pack this for my Wedding day this Sunday and also for my trip to Korea next week. It is gonna keep my skin clean and soft from all the makeup that it's gonna get this Sunday ♥.

Bioré Micellar Cleansing Water is available at all pharmacies, hypermarkets and supermarkets, and major departmental stores for S$18.90!! Time to stock them up ~~~

[Sponsored] Tsubaki Hair Oil

I always have issue with dry and damaged hair. All started ever since I dying my hair like nearly 10 years ago, my hair hasn't been at its best stage. :( At times, it will get so dry that split ends appears and that annoys me much. So bad that I am afraid to use hair dyer to dry my hair.

I'm always searching for leave-on hair treatment that will repair my dry, flat hair that has split ends too. However, nothing much works well.

Shiseido came up with a new product, Tsubaki Hair Oil. This hair oil is formulated with high concentration of selected camellia oil to deeply protect, moisturise and repair your hair, resulting in a luxurious shine. Sounds amazing and I couldn't wait to give it a try.

Application of one side to show the results
I've decided to apply one side to compare if it looks better after applying. In the picture, you can see that the side without Tsubaki Hair Oil looks dry and damaged. The side with application of Tsubaki Hair Oil looks smoother. And the best part is, it doesn't leave any sticky or greasy feeling like most hair treatment products (countless products have this issue). 

And even after applying the whole day, my hair doesn't get sticky or uncomfy. This product also protects my hair from UV rays damage while preventing split ends and hair breakage. This is a must in hair products as many of us miss out in protecting our hair from UV rays. We only remember our skin protection but not our hair. Time to keep up with the protection. *shivers from bad memories of head sunburn*

Tsubaki Hair Oil uses selected Camellia Oil, which has a elegant and indulgent scent of floral and green fruity notes. I like how my hair smells after applying. *sniff sniff* The Camellia Oil used is produced in the Goto Islands in Nagasaki, the perfect location for producing quality camellia oil thanks to the warm climate, fertile soils, and other favourable conditions.

This Camellia Oil have shininess, protective care, moisturising and repair effects. 4-in-1, which are things that we always lag in protecting our hair. And my hair does have that shiny effect even after 6 hours. I am happy to find this product before my big day this month, can't wait to have beautiful hair that doesn't look dry and dull all the time. Plus, my hair tends to get super flat in the afternoon when the weather is too humid. *gah*

Application of the hair oil is quite easy.

■How to apply evenly 

To prevent irregular application, spread half the appropriate amount (about 20-cent coin size for mid- length hair) onto the palms and work through the hair. Then, spread the second half onto the palms and focus on areas that require extra application.
Abou 20-cent coin size on palm
Rub on palms first before applying
Work through the bottom of the hair, especially those split-ends
Spread the second half of the palm on
areas that need extra applications. 

■How to prevent flat hair 

(Particularly recommendable to those who have soft and fine hair, like mine. I called it the stubborn hair)
Refrain from applying large amount inappropriately and unevenly. Start application from the damaged tips and gradually work upwards to the roots to avoid flat hair.

■How to reduce volume or prevent dry hair 

(Particularly recommendable to those who have thick and voluminous hair)
Apply an appropriate amount to wet hair and dry it with a hair dryer. Then, spread a small amount onto the palms and apply on bottom half of the hair to reduce the volume.

[Sponsored] Bio-essence Hydra Tri-Action Aqua Droplet: Sleeping Beauty Mask

Sometimes even when I do my daily routine, I feel that my skin doesn't get hydrated well enough. So I will always try to hydrate my skin whenever possible at night, since pores tends to open up more at night. Some hydrating products tends to be sticky which makes me feel a little uncomfortable. 

But with Bio-essence's Hydra Tri-Action Aqua Droplet Sleeping Beauty Mask, I don't have to fear sticky hydrating products! Now I can hydrate my skin, nourish and protect at the same time! *hoorays to less products to use* It is important to keep our skin hydrated as our skin gets oil or dry easily, moisturizing it allows the skin to replenish water, balancing the oil level. Besides that, like our body, our skin gets tired and dull easily without water. With daily hydration on our skin, it reduces dull skin tones and brightens up our tired skin.

Also, every girl hates to see large pores on our face. Hydrating our skins will also refine enlarged pores, reducing the chance to get rough skin. ^____^ It is a must to hydrate and moisture our skin, for beauty. 

And Bio-essence's Hydra Tri-Action Aqua Droplet Sleeping Beauty Mask has all the formula to combat the skin problems that we frequently face. It has a unique formulation which is enriched with 2 types of Hyaluronic acid (Power Nano Hyaluronic Acid & Hyaluronic Acid), Cranberry Extract & Bio Energy Fluid, which not only provides long lasting hydration but also protects skin from environmental factors.

I def wanna wake up to better skin condition daily. 
As this is a sleeping mask, it work at its best while I am sleeping. As replenishes moisture level, nourishes and repairs my skin non-stop. I can feel the difference when I wake up everyday, as it feels smoother and firmer. And this can be also used as a moisturiser daily before heading out!! Wonderful dual-usage for one product.

This product uses Bio Aqua Crystals, which means, when I applied the beauty mask, I could see water droplets forming~~ This is like a wonderful concept for hydration.
Can see the wet wet section. Those are actually water droplets! 
I love to use this product ever since I've gotten it as one thing the Bio Aqua Crystals technology amazed me quite a bit. Secondly, it doesn't feel sticky after applying, it is just water droplets on my face. I would just need it to absorb into my skin before applying my sunblock. And also, it has this seaweed fragrance which i like it. ♥ This makes me feel happy to apply Bio-essence's Hydra Tri-Action Aqua Droplet Sleeping Beauty Mask everyday.

And it is easy to you. All I need is to apply on my face and water droplets will appear. After that, I'll just massage till it absorbs fully. And if I wanna use it as a sleeping mask, i'll apply a thicker layer to replenish my skin’s moisture throughout the night. 
Looks a little glue-like texture.
