Carbon + Zeolite = Zero Pore Dirty & HauL

Hey all
How was the Christmas?? I had heaps fun, had family gathering and ate LOTS of yummy food.. happy happy. just relaxing.. So I went out today to check out some after Christmas shopping stuff. I didn't get any thing much, the clothes on discount are not ALL that I wanted, so I just got a few things.

Lets talk about the SANA Nameraka Foaming Face Wash (right):

It's a foaming face wash made out from bean extracts. This is my 3rd tube of this stuff. Absolutely Love it. I love foaming face wash, because It makes me feel that my face is CLEANED. I can't deal with cream face wash, just not me. So this one is similar to the Shiseido Skincare range facewash, it's White in colour when you sqeeze it out like tooth paste, get a bit of water and work it into foam and massage your face and wash off. easy as it is. The reason why I like this one is because It DOESN'T leave my face feeling overly dried, tight feeling, I leave my face to dry and not put on moisturizer (I know it's bad) and I don't feel the desperate need of moisturizer. Highly Highly recommended. It's really mild, I think it's even suitable for sensitive skin. It's pretty good for my combo/oily skin. LOVE it.. and after Using this face wash, I think I have less acne now. I don't know if it's this or the Garnier Light Lemon Essence. But I would give this product 10/10.. Can't live without it now.

This picture is the back of the face wash tube, it's in Japanese I don't understand it LOL but I know it contains NO fragrance, artificial colouring and mineral oils.

The other item I got which I would like to share is the p-dc Lepoze Hot Esthe Gel (left):

It's a pore cleaning gel which helps to get rid of the dirty stuff in side the pores. It claims to have active carbon particles with an amount of zeolite which works like this. After wash your face while having moisture and water on the face, sqeeze some of this stuff on the face, massage it all over until carbon particles dissolve and you can feel some warming up sensation while doing this. Then leave it on for like 3-5 mintues then use a cotton pad wipe it all off. then rinse the residue with water and WALAH, a clean face. I've only tried it once. After the first time use, I can see that some of my pores are cleaned while some are still left with black head dots LOL.. but generally speaking face feels much smoother than before and my moisturizer absorbs SUPER FAST. The product claims to remove surface dead skin and cleans the pore.

Since I've only use it once I won't do a review on it yet. But I will show some pictures of the product it self. A clear gel with loads of carbon particles

After you massage for 30 seconds the carbon particles tend to dissolve up

Then leave the product for 3-5 minutes and wipe off with a cotton pad. LOl looks like some mud.

And the 3rd item I got was the lipblam by OMI flavour is Grapefruit Jelly. Love the smell, So yummy has SPF12 and natural ingredients to keep moisture in and conditions the lips. So yeah, that's all, nothing fancy. take cares.

P.S Have a Happy New year every one ^___^

Mac Mineralised Skinfinish Natural Duo in Light medium & shimmer

Nars DT blush

Rimmel Santa Rose blush

Nars Laguna


Everyday Minerals Eyeshadow

Floating Feather highlight the brow bone & inner corner of the eye

Baby Bath as base

Oasis a second coat

Cypress in the outer corner of the eye and blend blend away

Mac Technikohl liner

I like this look.. so I photoshopped a photo I took hehehe Oh and with the Garnier Light lemon essence I think I'm going whiter.... I don't know if you can tell but I can tell from the photo.. or is it just me?? lol

Oh and I got this over the net at ichibankao..It's Ettusais Acne trial set. It's the Moisture Up Extra one. They also have an oil control version. This has the acne genle wash in a little round soap, and It has the Acne Skin Version up Extra which is a skin prep medicated lotion kinda thing. Then it has the toner called Aqua Shooter Moisture Up Extra. I'm trying these out now.
Will be giving a Review Soon. I also bought their Aqua Shooter Oil Control Extra Toner just to compare with the Moisture Up Extra Toner.
I thought that the Oil Control would come in Handy because I have oily combo skin. So yeah.

Tagged: 16 Random Factors (=_=)

Hey all,
I gota apologise for the lack of posts, since it's close to christmas and new yrs, been doing some Xmas shopping and random stuff, gathering and yeah. Sending pplz to airport as alot of my friends are going over seas.

So back to the main topic, I got Tagged WOOT. I got tagged by vanity I need to list 16 random factors, habits, goals about me and tag 10 other people.

I know this tag has been going around for a long time, and I haven't been updating the blogs, so I think every one has bee tagged already. So here I start,

1) I am very random, can be talking about one thing and then suddenly change topic to something totally irrelevant to the previous topic. I also say/do random things at random times LOL

2) I am a lostie, I am not good with my navigation senses. I will be so lost with out a map.

3) My favourite colour is purple (obviously), second one to that is probably red or white.

4) I love animals, would love to have a tiger cub for pet. ^___^ sooo cute.

5) My favourite thing to do is sleep, I love my sleep.

6) I hate mid-aged asian women slow driving, It drives me INSANE!!!! second to that I think I hate taxi drivers, they are just so INCONSIDERATE!! and drive around as if there's no one else on the road....

7) When I first make friends with people, I always start by giving everyone a perfect score of 100. Some people say I should start from zero and gradually add scores, but I like to assume that every one is nice.

8) I can't cook even with a receipe because I can't deal with the unclear instructions of exactly how much you surpose to put in. for example a PINCH of salt.. how much is a pinch?? drissle of oil.. like how much is that??? sprinkle of vanilla esscence. you get my point =p

9) I talk to me self some times when I get bored LOL

10) When I get married I would love my husband to buy me a golden retriever for wedding gift.

11) I talk alot with people I know, I don't really talk to people when we first met.

12) I am allergic to almonds.. but not other nuts (that's weird)

13) I can't swim and I can't ride a bike. this is how sad it is, I tried to learn them both, but doesn't work.

14) I love winter, especially when it SNOWS.... I actually don't like beach that much.

15) I am a gamer, I play alot of computer games. sounds geeky LOL

16) I don't like drinking coke... pepsi, sprite.. but I love solo...lemonade

That's all I think..

Garnier Light~~ Haul & Review

Hey all

I haven't been blogging much that's because I'm not all that into the new MAC collections><>
But that being said, I am into skincare products these days. I am always concerned about my Acne SCARS.. they are annoying me, they fade SOOO slowly.. and my complexion is dull and when ever I have 1 zit, it always leaves a mark no matter how big or small..

So I came across a range of products, it's not sold in Australia, not about US but it's avaliable in China and Hong Kong. So I've seen reviews saying that it's really good for brightening up complexion and helping to fade the acne scars or any other discolouration. it's the Garnier Light range. I purchased it off sasa.

So I got three things form that range:

1. Garnier Light Intensive Whitening Essence with Pure Vitamin C

2. Garnier Light Complete Whitening & Hydrating Moisturizer

3. Garnier Light Milky Lightening Dew

This range contains pure lemon essence and anti-pigmentation Long Dan a type of plant/root. Vitamin C acts as a strong anti-oxidant and melanin reducer. So the combination of these would help reduce the signs of pigmentation acne scars and discolourations. I've been using it for nearly a month now. So I guess it's appropriate to give a review.

Start with the Milky Lightening Dew it's a light lotion actually a toner which contains a small amount of Dimethicone a form of silica so the lotion is actually milky in texture instead of watery and it helps to control the oil. It doesn't contain any alcohol so which is a good thing. It also contains salicylic acid which is AHA if i'm not mistaken which helps with control of acne. When I used it, it does help to mattify the face and smooth it out. I give it a 3.5/5 because I still love my HG toner Garnier Fresh Toner (the green bottle but has been discontinued.. Heart aches).

The Intense Whitening Essence is a yellowy gel, spreads easily and quickly absorbed by skin. This one I LOVE....... because I've been using it separately for 2 weeks by it self at night and I noticed that my acne scar is FADING..... like my whole face's complexion brightens and requires less coverage of foundation. LOVE it..... should give it a try.. Though this is highly concentrated Vitamin C, some people may be allergic to this so becareful. I had no reactions towards it but, and I've been using Benzyl Peroxide regularly to stop my acne which is pretty damaging to skin. This I would give 5/5..

The Whitening & Hydrating moisturizer I don't like this very much, that is because It contains Titanium Dioxide. I mean WHO the hell would put that in an Moisturizer and it has NO SPF on it. The purpose of they putting that in is because they want to make the product look WHITE..... that's all.. that's it entirely STUPID........ the product it self comes out like WHITE COLGATE toothpaste, I'm serious... It does spread easily and gets absorbed and doesn't sit there, but there's a tiny white cast on my face........ I don't like that... feels like sth is on top of my skin and is sitting there... ><>

So I use this on my arms, legs so becomes a body moisturizer. That being said it has no problem for other parts of my body.. THAT IS WEIRD...................I Don't know why.. For a body moisturizer I give it a 4/5 because it does make my skin smooth but for whitening wise.. NO IDEA if it does so or not. for face moisurizer is 0/5... Absolutely Horrid.............

That's all for today.. A Super LONG post.. The next post will be on skincare as well. on Sunscreen review I think.......

Take cares......

Hey all

Any ways. I will do a FOTD post now.. mum bought me a new blue singlet.. I love it.........~~~

and and I don't think you can see in the picture I used a blue eyeliner and a browny/grey type of eyeshadow. oh and I tied up my hair into a bun on top of my head LOL.. I love this shade of blue on the singlet.. I think i might go grab the new blue eyeshadow from Mac's new collection.. I think it's called Metal-X or something..

What I used:
- rimmel lasting finish foundation
- Mac mineralized Skinfinish natural
- Nars Laguna
- Nars DT blush
- Coastal Scents 28 Neutral pallete (just random colours lol)
- Kate gel powder eyeliner in blue
- Maybelline define a lash mascara
- Mac techinkol liner for bottom waterline (some brown colour which i forgot the name)
- Mac Cherish lipstick

I photo shoped a picture.. LOL look so dark and gloomy... love the effect but. ~~~


I found that the Rimmel Last Finish 16 hours foundation is quite amazing I think it's even comparable with the MAC studio fix fluid.. like Seriously.. not joking. Think I will do a review on that soon.

Take cares..~~~
