[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.

[Video] Comparison between Ipad Mini Retina, Mipad and Nexus 7 2nd G

Ever since I ordered my Mipad and WS gotten his Nexus 7 2nd G, we have decided to do a comparison between the tablets. ^___^ And glad that my brother allowed us to loan his Ipad Mini Retina for this comparison. Tablets from the three big companies.

First let's compare the size of the three tablets.
Comparison in size
From the above picture comparison, Nexus7 is the smallest in size out of three of the tablets and Mipad and Ipad Mini Retina are the size in size. However, due to the colour contrast of Mipad, it looks slightly bigger than Ipad Mini. If you are someone who wanna go for something light and able to use with just a hand (for guys), Nexus 7 is the one you should go for. It is light in weight too. ^_^

Even though Mipad weighs heavier than Ipad Mini retina, it feels lighter to me, as the weight is well-distributed. Whereas for Ipad Mini, the weight is centralised, hence, making it feels heavier. For me, I like the weight of Mipad though. It is easier to carry, however it sure weighs down my bag whenever I bring it out to use it. *sweats*

Next, we moved on comparing the user interface, game loading speed and also the sound quality.



Sorry for the short video. But from this video, we can see that Mipad basically copies off Ipad Mini's interface (is similar), but running on android 4.4.2. Whereas, Nexus 7 looks just like its own, running on Android L, development ROM. I personally prefers IOS interface but it is not customisable friendly. So the alternative would be Mipad, but at this moment, there isn't any themes. T_____T *loads nova launcher* Other than that, I've got not much preference on UI.

Next is the game loading speed. Ipad mini loads Clash of Clan the fastest out of all three tablets. FTW! And Nexus 7 loaded last, I guess it is not very much optimised for gaming.

Lastly, the sound quality. Even though the Ipad Mini sounds alright in the video, but in reality, it sounded the softest. Basically if I were to watch a horror movie on Ipad Mini, I would have to pluck in speaker or use the headphones for effects. As for Mipad, it totally win all over all the tablets for its sound quality. I don't need to pluck in any headphones or speaker and it could blast out in the room. *Noisy neighbour here* As for Nexus 7, even though it may not be winning on the sound quality, but with the speakers balanced on the top and bottom, it wins "surround" sound since it is well-balanced off.

What's a tablet comparison without comparing the camera quality? :D Below are the three photos taken by the three different tablets. I've tried my best to take at the exact spot. *Obviously I failed* :p
Ipad Mini retina
Mipad
Nexus 7 2nd G
Out of the three photos, WS, ALP and I agreed that Mipad's photo colour is the closet to the actual product colour. Even though Ipad Mini is the brightest and vibrant in colour, it is the furthest off in the colour. Wellls Nexus 7 is just too bright. :p

In summary, Mipad seems like a worthy buy as of now, since it is more of a hybrid between a IOS and an Android product. And for that price of S$300+ why not? *being a little biased here* But of coz if we are gonna talk about portable, I'll rather go for Nexus 7 2nd Gen since it is the lightest and I def won't get hit right in the face. And Ipad Mini is well, ipad. :D

[Unboxing Videos] Redmi Note Singapore set


We all know that the Redmi Note Singapore set was released early July and everyone were eager to get their hands on it. After three flash sales, there were still quite a number who didn't manage to purchase it. I think I am one of the lucky ones, along with my friend.

So, as usual, we decided to do a unboxing video. If you wanna know more about the details of the Redmi Note, you can view hers:



Here is mine, a short snip, testing how great a Redmi Note video can be! Using Ian's Redmi Note to video down the unboxing process. Tell the truth, the video quality aint great but the recording is powerful.


And here's Redmi Note Lite video, great to convince that your parents need a Redmi Note!



After using my redmi note for a week or so now, I'm loving the size even though it's way bigger than my palms, but still the touch of a 5.5" is amazing. Maybe more after I full utilise the phone.
