Bioré UV AQUA Rich Watery Gel [AD]

Hi lovelies!
I’m thankful to be introduced to the newest range of
Bioré UV AQUA Rich Watery Gel 
Now my skin can get a higher UV protection with such affordable prices!

I think it’s really no point for us to apply UV just because it’s part of the makeup process?
We should know why we are doing so right?
Go on, read, and learn how to protect our skin better!:)

3 main Benefits:
1) Superior double UV block with SPF50+/PA++++ 
2) Maximum protection against harmful UVA and UVB rays from the sun 
3) Retains the much-loved light and watery texture
So here, let’s try!

Firstly, some background knowledge to why we need to apply sunblock/sunscreen!

Did you know? 
Prolonged exposure to the sun’s UV rays without proper protection can cause permanent effects such as premature skin ageing, wrinkles & freckles, as well as, various skin damages like discolouration, sallowness, dryness. 
In extreme cases, may lead to skin cancer.

The most damaging UV rays can be classified into different wavelengths, 
known as UVA and UVB
UVA rays penetrate into the deeper layers of our skin as compared to UVB rays, 
and are also the dominant tanning ray. 
The penetrative ability of UVA rays through glass means that even when you’re seeking shelter indoors, your skin continues to be exposed to its harmful effects which can cause cumulative damage such as wrinkling and skin ageing. 

However, UVB rays cause the most damage to the outer layer of skin 
such as reddening of skin and sunburns. 
Without proper protection, prolonged exposure to UVB rays 
can cause long-term damage to skin’s epidermal layers.

Sunscreen products are rated based on two rating systems, 
known as the Skin Protection Factor (SPF) and the PA rating system

The SPF rating determines the duration of time 
your skin stays protected against UVB rays from the sun. 

The calculation method is simple:

SPF Rating x (no. of minutes for skin to darken under sun) 
= No. of minutes skin is protected from UVB rays 

Example SPF50 x 20mins = 1000mins of protection from UVB 
(equivalent to 16 hours of protection) 

A sunscreen with the rating of SPF50 is sufficient coverage, 
as it blocks up to 98%of UVB rays from penetrating into skin. 

Anything higher than a SPF50 rating compromises on the texture of the sunscreen, 
making it heavier and greasier when applied to skin. 

On the other hand, the PA rating is a Japanese rating system that shows 
how much protection you are receiving against UVA rays. 
The higher the number of pluses, the greater the protection against UVA rays. 
Currently, the highest standard of PA protection in the industry is PA++++

Bioré has introduced its complete range of new and enhanced sunscreen products, offering the highest level of UV protection in the industry 
SPF50+ and PA++++ rating (previously PA+++). 

Bioré’s enhanced UV Series is your perfect shield against skin woes that could be easily prevented.
It brightens and whitens skin, for a glowing appearance

& is suitable for use as a make-up base

The Aqua Rich Watery Gel contains the breakthrough Aqua Micro Capsule a water capsule which breaks upon application on skin to release the UV protection agent while giving skin a cool and refreshed feeling

Yes, it is non-sticky! yays!
I apply a small amount on my face before applying on any make up
And after it dry, you won’t feel anything there.
Which is why i approve, and like this product alot.
Trust me, when you have already applied so many layers of 
(toner, essence, serum, moisturiser)
you won’t want your sunblock to be creamy and greasy,
basically, you want it light and non sticky.
Enuff said, HAHA

Okay, you may even apply on your body!

As i said, it’s priced very affordably at $18.90 / 90ml
& can be purchased at all 
Leading pharmacies, super & hyper markets, departmental stores, beauty stores and selected mini marts

One more thing…
The Biore range is extremely suitable for teens-young adults
as their products tend to be less strong,
then other brands like (SKII, Lancome etc..)

Read here to find out why:
young skins are not advised to apply anything too strong and 
there’s a list of sunscreen brands that are recommended for different ages.

Bioré UV AQUA Rich Watery Gel 
is also recommended by HER WORLD(:

So yes, strongly recommended!(:

Kotex LUXE pads [AD]

Hi ladies! 
The product that i’ll be reviewing today is the 

Ladies, if you are often insecure on your period days,
am afraid of leaks/stains 
during the night when you sleep,
when you sit/walk/perform activities during the day,
Then you obviously are not using the right brand.

 With the new KOTEX Luxe Ultrathin,

The pad that will help you realise that overnight period leakage is never your fault. 
& Now you can feel fabulous and on top of your game even on your period days, 
no more compromises!

So here, let me tell you how!

Night time – 32 cm 
The new KOTEX LUXE Ultrathin pad has a honeycomb liquid-locker which absorbs 
3X faster than your normal pads.

The honeycomb centre helps keep your skin dry, 
while the New Surround Lock Protector(surrounding embossed star-contours)
is designed to help provide you with additional security and leakage protection.

Same for the Day pads,
they’re designed to provide you with both dryness and softness!

Below in the video, 
I’ve experiment the overnight ultrathin with the following objectives:

1) To test how much the pad can hold
2) The feel of the surface (wet/dry)
(I have to test this to know if it’s comfortable or not)

And yes,
i would rate….
1)To test how much the pad can hold 8/10
Considering that we ladies, don’t actually have that much of a night flow
as compared to the amount of water i’ve poured hah

2) The feel of the surface (wet/dry) 9/10
Am really impressed by how dry the surface feels 
even after being filled with so much water.

So.. Kudos to the pretty striking colours 
and creative packaging this time round by KOTEX.

You may purchase them at $5.95 per pack.

Browtisan Eyelash Extensions

Hi! It’s been a month since 
i’ve done my BROWTISAN eyelash extensions 
so i thought that i’ll just do a short review of it
The promotions are still ongoing at groupon so hurry grab before the deal’s over!

$28 for a Customised Korean Single Lash Eyelash Extension at Browtisan (worth $123) in Orchard Road

I did their dramatic eyelash as you can refer to from the picture below.
You may opt for natural extensions, which i normally do.
(And when the lashes drop you won’t look awkward with empty spaces between your lashes)
Only did dramatic this time cause it’s good for photos.
They’re 13mm if i’m not wrong, 
and the beautician mixed some 12mm for the sides so it don’t look flat and weird.
Actually no matter where you’ll be doing your lashes extensions,
i recommend a customised one instead of a fixed length for all lashes
 cause they will look really unnatural.
So ladies, please ask before you do it, esp for their deals/coupons
(you don’t want to end up topping up money)
Happy eyes for Day 1
Afew days later… still good.

3 weeks after…
Okay i drop like min 1 lash everyday so it’s pretty good to last this long already?

The life expectancy of these lashes to stay on your eyes prettily is a month or lesser 
So i guess Browtisan’s a pretty good recommendation to go to.
