Maybelline ColorSensational Lipcolor Velvet Matte review (Mat 5)

I love lipsticks, but I hate lipgloss. Coincidentally today’s product looks exactly like a lipgloss. BUT it’s not a lipgloss lipgloss, it’s a velvety matte lipgloss.

I just dun have a thing for glossy finish, if you ask me I will choose matte anytime. I just dun have a thing for glossy finish, if you ask me I will choose matte anytime.

I was walking around Guardian the previous weekend and I thought I saw something new. I have been trying very hard to avoid looking at makeups because your girl here need to control her spending you know! But when I saw this I know I had to buy it. One because it’s an interesting product, second because it’s advertised by GIGI HADID!

She’s my favourite model right now. (im always changing)

Oh another thing it was on sale, I guess the timing was quite right so I decided to just buy it!
 photo IMG_8362_zpsri9rrgdx.jpg
I wanted to get MAT 1, 2, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 and 12 and ended up getting MAT 5 because I only got one orange lippie and all the others are reddish or pinkish tones.

It appears to be very bright when I swatched on my hand though, but Gigi was the one who push me to buy. Cos she is wearing the same one for her ad. LOL! I thought she looked natural so why not?
 photo DSC01152_zpsg8pvaooi.jpg
I know it looks super bright here. But when I applied on my lips, it does settles in and I look pretty natural with it.

I was quite worried that it will be another lipgloss with glossy finish, but after applying it I really like how it looks and feels on my lips. It is lightweight and ends with a smooth and matte finish. 😀 I did some research about this product and got to know that the hydrating formula here helps to keep the lips hydrated, non sticky and non chalky the whole day.

I agree with this as my lips did not crack and does not appear to be dry at all.
 photo IMG_8289_zps39g5y5mw.png
This is how my lips looked like with MAT 5. sorry if it looks too smooth here. LOL

It doesn’t look very bright right? It’s a very nice bloody orange color and it sorts of perk up your whole face as well.

Most of the times I go to work with only eyebrows drawn, this really helps me to look more like a human.
I’m thinking of getting MAT 2 next (and of course maybe more), will post here once I get them it! 😛

I really love this product and if you try it I will be happy too. 🙂 If I’m not wrong the retail price should be $21.90.

Affordable and good makeup removers (My top choices/review)

One important thing I always forget to bring out is my makeup remover. For whatever reason, it’s always not in my list. Like for example, when I travel, when I go over to S house, when I go staycation or etc etc. I always forget to bring my remover!

And it’s because of this reason that I have the ‘opportunity’ to try different types of removers and finally found a few that I liked. They are not high end products but come on man, high end products doesn’t mean it’s good either, sometimes the price is just because of the branding.

No.1 on my list is always olive oil which I blog about it before over here. I was using the original olive oil all this while until recently that I decided to change to the Green tea olive oil. Other than the smell is better! I realized it removes my mascara better too. (being serious here, this is not an ad), I guess it makes some sense as well since it’s slightly more expensive BUT still only max $5+ a bottle for the green tea one which I think it’s super value for money.

No freaking makeup removers can remove my Heroine Mascara easily at one go, except for olive oil. Of course if you have any removers that can do this, then feel free to tell me, I need the info. BUT if it’s more expensive than 5bucks you can keep the info to yourself.

Natural, cheap and good still sounds like a better choice.

This is the list of removers I have tried:

1. Sephora waterproof eye makeup remover (water based)

2. Kao Biore Cleansing Oil

3. Bifesta Brightup cleansing lotion (water based)

4. Bioessence Miracle Bio water Jelly makeup remover

I don’t really like the sephora one because it stings my eyes pretty badly when I try to wipe off my eyeliner. 🙁 funny how the name says it is for eyes, but its very useful for the face.

 photo IMG_7895_zpsq0n6gd6d.jpg

Oil based Biore. Seemed like this is more oily than my Ginvera Olive Oil. I tend to be careful when handling this, but good thing is it removes my FACE makeup really fast. Dont really like the wipes.

 photo IMG_7896_zpspwjsc3zz.jpg

Bifesta. Fell in love with it when I bought the sample bottle for my hk trip. Its so effective that I decided to get the big bottle and park it at S’s place! Good for face and eyeliner but still not mascara. (ignore the soyabean promo)

 photo IMG_7897_zpsn3vquskd.jpg

Bioessence. Bought it because Im fascinated with the word jelly on it. You know some removers make your skin rougher? Thats why I wanted to try something moisturizing.

Each has its own good, but personally I love the Bioessence one, because it’s cooling and when applied, it’s very soft to the skin, and it doesn’t sting at all which is a plus point. 😀

This will be the end of my post today, hope you have some idea to what kind of makeup removers you want for your makeup! Hope I helped you to save some money also. :p

NewMoon Collagen POWDER

I have a question for you guys today.

Do you bring your collagen drinks while you’re traveling? Or you just stop the dosage and continue after you’re back?

I don’t know about you guys but once I start on a regime I MUST make sure I do it everyday. For example my GNC hair supplements and evening primrose oil, I bring them along when I go for stay-cation or holidays. Even for my retainer, I wear it every night without fail.

But collagen drinks happen to be one of my ongoing issues. This pisses me off because they take up alot of space! If I go for a 2weeks holidays I can’t possibly bring 14 bottles with me right? Well I can if I want to BUT I don’t want.

And this is where New Moon steps into the picture and actually presents me with a solution.

 photo SAM_6490_zps7i9mbbrj.jpg

New Moon Inner Radiance Collagen Powder

so convenient. Light weight. Fuss free. TRAVEL FRIENDLY. You can take it anytime and anywhere. Even though the dosage is lower than the New Moon Collagen drink at 5,460mg it is still pretty high compare to other brands.

 photo SAM_6493_zpsdr3yhidm.jpg

You know I did have significant results shown with the collagen drinks and I usually have the powder form when I’m out overseas or staying overnight at a friend’s place. My skin has been pretty clean since or could be because I’ve been cutting down on oily food due to my stomach problems. BUT my manager had commented that my skin has become better which is def a positive thing to hear. 😀

I do notice that my pimples are healing faster if they happen to pop out which usually happens when my period is coming. And yes skin like I mentioned before definitely smoother. I hate to say I have smooth skin I kinda have some phobia with that. lol inside story sorry.

The New Moon Inner Radiance Collagen Powder contains Glutathione (for whitening), Collagen Peptide, Ceramide, Hyaluronic Acid and PROBIOTICS! Smart of them to think about our intestines! Sometimes our breakouts could be due to the food we eat and the unwanted bacteria hiding in our body! A balanced microflora in the intestines will clear up breakouts, for a blemish prone radiant skin.

Ceramide and Hyaluronic Acid when used together would also moisturize and help in antiaging. Hyaluronic also acts as an antioxidant and delivers mild antibacterial & anti-inflammatory benefits.

Collagen Peptide will help to stimulate our skin to produce collagen naturally and brighten skin tone for a radiant complexion.

Another thing that I’m fascinated about the collagen powder drink is that it has only 24calories! This is kind of an important factor for a weight loss blogger. :p

 photo SAM_6491_zpsjpkevcbt.jpg

So how do you drink this?
I personally take with fruit juice! But you can also try these with
Tea/Coffee/Hot Chocolate
Fruit Juice, like me!
Soup
as Yogurt topping?
Milk

And any other items you can think of! But remember it contains high level of Vitamin C so do not mix it with high temperature drinks.

If you ask me, I will recommend the powder drinks because it’s really convenient and I really like that its low in calorie and high in collagen content! It’s definitely good for travelling, so if you always travel around why not give this a try? 😉 Otherwise, you can also try out the collagen drinks that I talked about which contain 13000mg here.

Let’s work hard towards smooth and radiant skin!

 photo SAM_6497_zps4e2hhff5.jpg

The retail price of the New Moon Inner Radiance Collagen Powder drink is $49.90 and it contains 15satchets. You can get it at leading supermarkets, pharmacies and selected departmental stores.

New Moon.. Collagen Drink!

The beauty about being a beauty blogger is that you get to know so much about beauty related stuffs. To be honest, I am very lazy, I am a tomboy and I’m very fickle minded.
I can spend all my money on makeup this month and just put on mascara and blusher only for the following.

I can spend a lot of money on supplements and skin care products now and sleep with my face naked the next.

Terrible.
I used to spend on collagen drinks. I got introduced to the collagen world and I am hooked to it.

So for the past 2 years, I got lazy and tired. I just want to play with makeup when I feel like and take care of my skin when it gets bad. Not consistent at all, not diligent at all. I’m ashamed. Really.

Then I got the opportunity to try the collagen drink from New Moon. Yes New Moon that No.1 best selling Abalone brand.

HOLD ON.
I wasn’t informed that it was from New Moon. I was lucky enough to be involved in the R&D process, so I just took whatever flavor I preferred and consumed it for a month in order to see the best results.

 photo SAM_6469_zpsfmde3eaj.jpg

Check out my result. 🙂 I swear this is all measured by Skin Analyzer.

 photo SAM_6408_zpsezxuvncd.jpg
Picture taken at night.

Collagen: Before 25 After 40 – increase 15%
Elasticity: Before 17 After 36 – increase 19%
Moisture: Before 23 After 57 – increase 34%

I was amazed with the results but honestly I really feel the difference. My skin became much radiant, smooth and firm! It was so good to poke and pinch. Haha! Because of the difference I felt and the results shown, I started on collagen drink again!

 photo SAM_6424_zpsgkwtubfl.jpg

New Moon Inner Radiance Collagen is a premium collagen drink with one of the highest collagen content at 13,000mg with active properties. It is made in Japan, all things made in Japan are awesome. Sorry I’m biased. One more info for you, its certified radiation free.
🙂

 photo SAM_6478_zps71f0yyoc.jpg

New Moon Inner Radiance Collagen contains fish collagen, peptide, Maqui Berry Extract, Blueberry extract, Glutathione, Hyaluronic acid, Vitamin C, Vitamin B6, Ceramide, Citric Acid, Sugar and tropical flavor.

Glutathione promotes whitening, anti oxidant with anti-aging effect, and I promise there is no fishy smell to it . (I don’t taste any at least)

In case you’re wondering what’s the big deal with Glutathione.. This is naturally presented and needed by the body. Glutathione plays a vital role in detoxifying our cell, removing heavy metals, toxins and free radicals. All of which can damage our cells and significantly damage the quality of our skin cells!

This compound helps to improve the health of every cell in the body, particularly apparent in the skin, hair and nails which resulted in our skin emitting a radiant glow.

 photo SAM_6479_zpsg8j9lqxw.jpg

Age spots can also be minimized and prevented by enhancing Glutathione levels in the body. The anti-aging effects of Glutathione are remarkable, from complexion, age spots and wrinkles, so to sum it up. There is very little that won’t benefit from this master antioxidant.

Because of the high dosage of collagen, the drink is thicker as compared to the other brands in the market but still, tastes pretty good.

The anti-oxidant in the drink is extract from Maqui Berry, which has the highest anti-oxidant properties based on ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) value.

Inner Radiance Collagen is suitable from age 25 to 50years old, I’m in the range already. It helps to refine and firm skin. Improves skin defence system, boost skin hydration, brighten skin tone and renew our skin. 🙂

 photo SAM_6481_zpssvmkirh8.jpg
So happy with the result.

The retail price for the collagen drink is $69, but there is a SG50 discount from April to May! You are paying half of the original price for 10bottles of goodness!

From 1st April to 31st May, with every purchase of 1 box of New Moon Inner Radiance Collagen, you are entitled to participate in a lucky draw! Listen..

5 Lucky Winners with their PLUS ONE are able to choose between 5 pairs of return ticket to Japan!!!!!!!!!! (Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya, Fukuoka) I’m definitely going to join this man!

I seriously think we are at an advantage here; half price on collagen drink ($34.90) 10 bottles inside!! And chance to win tickets to JAPAN!!

I’m sure all women are excited about this! If you get it and win it let me know I would be so happy for you! And jealous. 🙂

By the way, New Moon Inner Radiance Collagen is available in all leading supermarket, pharmacies, petrol kiosks and selected departmental stores.

Note: Like I said, our skins are all different, but all of us bloggers have significant differences after taking this drink, so I’m pretty sure you will have too! 🙂 BEST OF LUCK FOR WINNING THE TICKETS!

HulaHoop to lose weight and Sleek Tag Review!

Hello guys I’m very excited to show you what I got today because it’s the one thing I always like to do! If you read all my weight loss related posts before (thank you very much!! 🙂 you will know that I always play hula hoop, and I started losing weight with the help of a hulahoop!

I love hula hoop so much because it is super convenient and I can exercise anytime and anywhere. It’s very hard for me when I have to work + school and I really have no time to exercise so the only thing I can do frequently is hula hooping. Imagine the time I sit during work and school, I really want to prevent the growth of a tummy so hula hooping is really my best friend!

Another thing is whenever I want to go out for a walk or run, it has to rain! So with a hula hoop it really helps me to exercise in my crib!
The best hula hoop I have ever used is my friend’s mother’s one, and it’s like those strings of HUGE beads linked together and you play it like a hulahoop. I don’t even know if you understand what I’m saying but story is: I broke that.

Since then I have been using a wooden hula hoop which is THIS:

 photo SAM_6025_zpsa628faf5.jpg

When I started playing this, I had bruises.. well it’s wood! I tried looking around for an alternative but they are always those that are very light weighted ones.. (like those probably you can look for in markets) So I give up and stick to this for 8years. Wow I feel so old. Another thing is this cannot be dissembled and I always get nagged by my grandmother cos I always threw it around after I’m done. Zzz.

But today I’m very excited!!! Because why?? I got new HULAHOOPS TO PLAY WITH!! Before I go on with my honest opinions on this hulahoops, tell me if you want to try playing them I can lend you for a week then you can buy your own. Lol!
I will also be showing you what Simon and I have been wearing when we go out for hiking or walks! So please continue reading! =D

 photo SAM_6020_zps13b6377d.jpg

Here I’m holding like 4 hulahoops but actually I got 8 plus 1 arm hoops! Arm hoops??!?! Yes. You read me. I can also tone my arms now!!
But before I talk about the arm hoops which is super amazing.. I even ask my grandmother to play.. I’m going to go through the different types of hoops I have right now!
The top top top reason why I love these hula hoops is because they can be disassembled! This is so good because I can just break them into the respective parts and store them without my living room looking like a mess, and I just need to assemble them again whenever I need to!

And I have always wanted to have a hula hoop at Simon’s place so now this thought is settled! =D
I have 8 different types of hula hoops to show you today! I’m sure one of it will suit you. 😀

1. Solid-1000
Among all, this is the easiest to assemble. It’s not too heavy nor light, I think the weight is perfect too. Just to warn you, if you are a beginner you may keep dropping the hula hoop, and sometimes it will drop on your feet! Magic’s weight is kinda perfect in a sense that it’s not too heavy to make you pain when it drops or too light that you don’t feel anything when you play.

 photo SAM_0991_zps7efec785.jpg

 photo SOLID1000_zps2adc3827.jpg

 photo magicfix1_zps6a1d6b98.jpg

Solid-1000 consists of 6 separate parts which can be connected together easily with the fast locking mechanism.
Above diagram shows how I assemble the hula hoops.
There is a ‘button’, I just press it down and push it into the other hole. Very easy and fast! Probably 1-2mins?

Next I have the Smooth Foam Hoops:
This weighted one is foam-made and more rubbery to the touch.
The Solid-1000 seems to shake more faster than this one maybe because of the different material being used.
I personally prefer the Solid-1000 as compared to this because I have to shake faster to keep it on my waist, in this way I also sweat faster.

 photo SAM_6006_zpscfaca639.jpg

 photo SAM_6008_zpscf0f10d7.jpg

3. Smooth Foam Hula Hoop: Smooth Foam 1.1KG, 100cm (above) and Smooth Foam 750g, 90cm (below)

 photo foamhulahoop_zpsd7424f14.jpg

This hoop is easily adjustable to suit both male and female users, if males are bigger sized then they can use this too.

Many of you asked where I usually buy Hulahoops, and the last time I think I mentioned was Paragon. If you really want to buy hula hoops then you should buy these types that can be kept in your storeroom! The previous time I bought the wood one, I actually carry the whole thing home alone, a lot of people were staring at me, I definitely don’t want that to happen again even though it’s quite fun. Lol!

By the way I actually think that the above 3 that I showed are more suitable for beginners because they are not so heavy. So if you already are playing hula hoop and are used to the weight then you can look at these!

4) Adjustable Weight Hula

 photo heavyassemble2_zpsfeae9094.jpg

This one is amazing because you can build up the weight of your hula! I just put the iron filling into the hole then I just connect the parts together by pressing the ‘button’. It’s very easy and fast and you can adjust the weight from 3LB to 5LB depending on how heavy you want it to be. This can really strengthen the stomach muscles by the way.

And if you don’t like this, I also have the massage types!

 photo pvchulahoop_zpsb57699a8.jpg

These 4 hula hoops all have massage balls on them and the difference about them is their weight.
The Orange one is 1.1KG Diameter 108cm Pipe Diameter 3.5cm
The Pink one is 1.45KG Diameter 110cm Pipe Diameter 3.5cm
The Yellow one is 1.60KG Diameter 110cm Pipe Diameter 4cm
The Blue one is 1.70KG Diameter 110cm Pipe Diameter 4.25cm

On the box it was recommended to play for 20minutes a day. The massage balls inside the pipe will slim your waist and massage your muscle, the magnet inside the pvc ball provides acupressure and also promote blood circulation.

After seeing so many types of hula hoops, do you feel like trying them out? I really think you should start playing hula if you have no time to exercise, if you have time to watch tv then you definitely have the time to play hula hoop because you can do this 2 things together!
That’s my favourite thing to do, watch my favourite drama show and play hula hoop!
It also helps to get rid of belly fats which are like the number one or two concerns for us ladies!

For me, my number one concern is actually my limbs! Other than thighs, next problem for me, my arms! So when I saw this arm hoops together with the other hula hoops, you cannot imagine my excitement. It’s too cool! If you have arm problems then continue reading!!

Arm Hoops
 photo SAM_0994_zpsc8d8579e.jpg

My grandmother and I have so much fun playing with this hoops! I can play it anywhere, it’s really working my arm and shoulder muscles, and I can feel the soreness when I play it! I’m going to do this more frequently so to tone up my arms!!

• For beginners, do not use hoops for more than 5 minutes for first 2 weeks.
• Hula hooping is not suitable for pregnant ladies.

Remember starting of the post I mentioned Simon and I have been wearing something recently??
This is it!

 photo Picture8_zpse6d57aa0.jpg

Okay maybe on first look, you may be thinking, chey it’s couple’s tag! But there are more important things to the tags that you might want to know!

These stainless steel tags can be engraved. It’s very important because you can engrave important information of the person wearing it in case of emergency. Especially for people who are very active, they should definitely have this because there are always risks associated with outdoor activities and with important information engraved on it, strangers will know who to contact and etc etc..

If you don’t want to put your contact information, you can also put your blood type or even allergen information!

 photo Picture9_zps216d2fb0.jpg This is my close up: Anything happens to call Simon’s HP number.

[Unusual Review] Klarity Lasertox CC Miracle White Lotion SPF 30/PA++

[Sponsored Review]

It’s up to you to believe if this review is real anot because whenever people sees the SPONSORED word there, they auto tune to fake post. But I’m just sharing how I feel about this product. This review is not going to be your usual template style by the way.

I’ve been trying this Klarity Dtox CC cream lately and I really love the whitening effect it gave me.

 photo IMG_3292_zps238743c6.jpg

Short story here: While trying to take photo of this, I broke my Lancome Advanced Genifique serum. It’s not even half used for the 50ml one 🙁 haiz.. 

First and foremost I don’t really wear liquid foundation, so looking for a good BB/CC cream is a huge deal to me.

My best BB cream so far is actually from Garnier.. (OHYEA!) It used to be from Etude house but I switched it to Garnier because it’s cheaper and super uber duper good. Try it out if you never try before. It’s only SGD17.90 for that awesome BB 😀 Yes I just throw in another brand of BB cream when I’m reviewing about this product.

Klarity Lasertox CC Miracle White Lotion has:

– SPF 30/PA++
– Whitening effect
– Purify your skin
– Repair
– Firming
– Smooth
– Soothe
– Hydrate
– Tone
– Anti Aging
– Waterproof

It’s seen on the product that it’s suitable for both Body & Face, but I havent try it on my body yet. But body? Im curious really.

I agree with the whitening part as it shows on my face and the reason of this is because this product contains diamond powder.

 photo SAM_0667_zpsd972610b.jpg

Hi hello I got visible pores and im proud of it.

I am not sure about firming as I don’t use this everyday and Im drinking collagen now so the firming part I really can’t judge much.

This CC cream does help in balancing my skin tone, giving the whitening effect that I desired. And also it helps to retain my facial moisture in a good way, my face doesnt get oily when I apply this and it’s not dry either. But one thing I disliked about this is: it’s not easy to blend. I don’t know why. Is it because of my face? Anyone of you try this before and have the same issue?

Like I said everyone’s face is different. You may think the klarity is smooth but on me it’s not. It’s probably because of the thick texture it has. But overall I will still use it because of the whitening effect.

I haven’t use the mask yet because I REALLY DON’T HAVE TIME. But I will review it soon.

Bye guys!
Once again, product review is based on my skin. Don’t stereotype every review thank you.

With love,
CLaire

Ceutical Plus Aqua-Collagen Hydration Series Review

REVIEW

I really need collagen, I have a skin age of 28!!! My skin looks ok but it’s actually 28yrs old I feel so sad. 🙁 k let’s go back to today’s topic.

I was given this range of products to use for my skin recently:

 photo IMG_3217_zps515ac738.jpg

My new camera 😀

The Ceutical Plus Aqua-Collagen Hydration Series

Ceutical Plus is a skincare brand from Taiwan (excited!), and it combines 3 moisturizing active ingredients to give us a more youth and firmer looking skin:

– Marigen Peptide
– Xpertmoist Peptide
– Tornare

Tornare assists in providing stable moisturizing effect, xpertmoist to lift up our skin instantly! and Marigen to boost the collagen and hyaluronic acid synthesis so as to active our skin’s moisturizing function! So all in all, you get the gist of this. HYDRATION AND MOISTURIZE. BOING BOING BOING!

I haven been reviewing skin care products for awhile and I was really excited for this because I can’t wait to feel/touch the creams/lotions!

I was given 3 products to try out.

 photo IMG_3214_zpsb824f23e.jpg

1) Aqua-Collagen Intensive Hydration Serum
This serum boosts skin cells activities, collagen and hyaluronic acid synthesis which promote skin elasticity. For some reason I’m still using my Lancome serum, it’s my personal preference and I can’t change out of this habit!

 photo IMG_3194_zps853a090b.jpg

 photo IMG_3215_zps0b627c3a.jpg

2) Aqua-Collagen Moisture Cream
This cream is kinda thick and creamy. Good for moisturizing, soothing and repairing. I feel that it’s a little too heavy for my liking but surprisingly it has a rather good absorption and makes me feel that my skin became softer.

 photo IMG_3198_zpsa40762bd.jpg

 photo IMG_3212_zps0f569ade.jpg

3) Aqua-Collagen Hydration Gel Mask
Replenish our skin with a large amount of moisture! You can use it as a temporary mask or a sleeping mask!
If you want to use it as a temp mask then leave it on for about 10-15mins and rinsed away with lukewarm water (: I love this product alot because it has a really nice smell!

My thoughts:
I’m still hooked to my Lancome Advanced genifique, and I personally still prefer light weight moisturizer so what I would recommend is the gel mask! Because it smells really nice, good absorption, works well and doesn’t feel heavy at all. Welcome to my face gel mask! You’re part of the family now! 😀

You might want to try out the above following products, otherwise I guess you can go down to Sasa outlets to feel the texture!

Anyway the retail price are as follow:
1) Aqua-Collagen Intensive Hydration Serum: $39.90
2) Aqua-Collagen Moisture Cream: $32.90
3) Aqua-Collagen Hydration Gel Mask: $25.90 worth it!

Review is based on my skin.

With love,
Claire

How I use my Ginvera Olive oil! (benefits)

Today I’m sharing my favourite product of all time!!

I realized alot of people have been googling about Ginvera Olive oil, and I decided to write a full post on this!

The first time I got introduced to olive oil is when I was still in primary school, my grandmother loves doing different kind of hairstyles on my KNEELENGTH HAIR. yes kneelength!!! She was really crazy about growing out my hair and she got really pissed with me when I went to cut it just before I got enrolled into Secondary school.

I regret it actually. 🙁 I used to have really black, smooth, thick and silky hair. I cut it because I feel that they are long and disgusting. I remember going to the salon with my mom and I told the lady that I wanted my hair to be ear length (cos I feel it’s cool) -_-. haiz..

Anyway back to the main point. My grandmother loves using olive oil hair on me to keep my hair in place and I used to hate it ALOT. Cos the smell is awful and Im always looking ‘oily’. Okay she spam the oil on my hair okay so that’s.why..

And that’s it, I grew up hating olive oil.

But NOW Im loving this and if I ever run out of this item, I go mad, like literally mad.

I’ll share with you HOW I USE MY OLIVE OIL.

1. As my makeup remover.
I can’t remember where I read about using this to remove makeup, but ever since I tried this, I have never use any other makeup remover to remove my makeup! It’s good, natural and it removes makeup easily and at the same time moisturize my face!!

2. Hair ‘treatment’
Instead of hair mask, when I am conditioning my hair, I just rub in Olive oil and after that I just rinse off together! This is a good way to soften your hair. 😀

3. Teeth Whitening.
Please dun say Im gross, because I just started this on Saturday, I read from the net that Olive oil helps in teeth whitening and I tried this on my teeth. :O
I used a cotton pad and wipe my teeth! I think it helps a little after drinking coffee. But my teeth is really yellow so I think the only way is to go for teeth whitening. Using this method is just to prevent extra staining. Also, I think the real extra virgin olive oil will do the trick but it’s really gross.

So yah this is how I used my Ginvera Olive oil everyday!

Do you have one? And how do you use it?? Let me know! 🙂

With love,
Claire 😀

A dreamy rooftop garden, in the heart of New York City, is a magical
escape from the streets below. Enhanced by the splendor of the towering building in the
distance, a botanical delight, where urban gardeners plant their cozy oasis.
Picked from the heart of New York City, DKNY launches a new fragrance collection:
DKNY Be Delicious City Blossom– inspired by the trending and growingly popular urban rooftop gardens that are a sanctuary for the New York girl-on-the-go.

I tried 2 of DKNY’s one before, one is the Fresh Blossom Intense and the other in red. I have always wanted to try the green one but Simon says it’s too fruity! And I personally feel that all DKNY’s fragrance has the same base smell.

I thought the Empire Apple would have a similar smell too BUT I was wrong!

DKNY Be Delicious City Blossom Empire Apple priced at $82 for 50ml features the classic Be Delicious fragrance in beautiful limited edition botanical inspired packaging and carton. The scent features top notes of American Apple Extract, Cucumber, Grapefruit and Magnolia with middle notes of Tuberose, White Muget, Rose and Violet. Base notes of Sandalwood, Blonde Wood and White Amber resonate with the original.

I really love the smell of Empire Apple! Even though it still contained the classic scent of apple, this smell is much more intense and it makes me feel sexy! I have never thought that DKNY fragrance can be sexy, as they always give me a feeling that they are meant for young girls! Empire Apple is very refreshing, at the same time, releasing a deep scent of seductive woody smell which I really loveeeeeeeeee alot! I will still try out other fragrance for sure BUT I definitely will not forget Empire Apple. It’s gonna be one of my staple!

I’m quite interested to know how Rooftop Peony and Urban Violet smell like! (oh yes these are the other 2 in the collection)

DKNY Be Delicious Limited Edition City Blossom fragrances are available exclusively to SASA on 1 June 2014 and at all major department stores and perfumeries beginning 1 July 2014. I hope you love them as much as I do!

To be empowered, you need to be confident; you need to believe that you will accomplish whatever mission you set for yourself.

To be confident, you need to feel positive and happy. And what makes woman feel good? The first thing that change our mood is when we wake up in the morning looking at ourselves in the mirror, everything feels right, everything looks good, and it makes you feel better, pretty and confident!

Correct me if I’m wrong, but majority of you feel more confident when you wake up with nice complexion, slim face, and non-puffy eyes right? 😛

Even Audrey Hepburn agrees that happy girls are the prettiest!

But what is that MOST IMPORTANT MOST IMPORTANT part on your body that affects you the most even if you feel pretty and confident???

Come on…. I’m sure you know this..

It’s none other than our………………
V.J.J!

I’ve got bad experience with UTI so I always make sure I wash my VJJ with vaginal wash! I’m definitely a regular buyer of Lactacyd! Not advertising here, I’m sharing what I really use!
If you suffer from UTI before, you will understand how I feel! The feeling is so baddddd!
I remember I was in Hong Kong the other time, I was supposed to dress up and look good, BUT DUE TO MY UTI, I totally lose all the excitement while in overseas!
So what I’m trying to say is even if we look beautiful and perfect, our mood will spiral down if our VJJ feel uncomfortable!
And when this happen, so how can we still feel happy and confident?

And Air!

3. Tips to prolong your game life!
A) Whenever you see Lactacyd objects – GRAB IT!

16 photo lac16_zps3cf36e83.jpg

17 photo lac17_zps1e3b1356.jpg

The bottle can slow down your movement, so that you have more time to avoid the stupid objects like the insect, shark and the plane! The bottle can also give you a protective barrier (the bubble) to protect yourself from the objects!

18 photo lac18_zps76fbeaf8.jpg

B) Answer the bonus quiz correctly!
At the start of each round, they will prompt you with a Bonus Quiz to grant you bonus items or points, do answer the question correctly because the question are quite straightforward and I want you to answer correctly to increase your chance of winning! It would be a great head start to the rest of the game!
This is an example of a question they may ask you!

19 photo lac19_zps45f02ad2.jpg

C) Collect as many points as you can!

20 photo lac20_zpsd85285bc.jpg

IMPORTANT HERE!!!
The more scores you have might even represent how empowered you are!! If you are worried that there are limits to the scores you get, then you are WRONG!
Because you can get more bonus points by uploading your receipt of your purchase of Lactacyd products!

23 photo lac23_zps90e40a23.jpg

You know what is the best part of this??? One receipt is EQUIVALENT TO 10,000 points!!!

24 photo lac24_zps448865c5.jpg

I think I’m going to win already because I’m a lactacyd lover and I think I’m gonna garner high points for sure!
You don’t even have to upload immediately! You can come back the next day or after the game to add on the points! As long as it’s before the contest ends. How AWESOME!!

4. And lastly remember to choose your FANTASY!
REMEMBER to choose the fantasy you want to experience after you complete the game and write a short reason of why you want to do it! So they will know what to give you if you are the ultimate lucky winner! You can choose different fantasy every single time you play, but you can only win in one category!

Easy peasy, let’s start playing and accumulating points now!!! 😀 Do let me know if you win and share with me the fun you have! I will do that with you too! 😀
