Fernanda X Beauty Direct

*** There is a giveaway at the end of this post! ***

A lot of beauty products are easily available in Korea and Japan but not easily available in Singapore. This is why online shopping is the IN-thing now.

I browsed through beautydirect.com.sg and selected a few items for review. One of the brands which caught my attention was Fernanda!

Fernanda is a Japanese brand that has body mist, hair fragrance, body scrub, hair oil and so much so much all!

Check out all the beautiful packaging and they are all in floral scent! My choice was obviously the Pink Euphoria – Bergamot, Raspberry, Apple.

Only the hair fragrance oil is in Maria Regale.

Everything smells really good. I tried the body scrub ($26.90) for a few nights and slept very well after that because I smelled really good. However, my favorite product in the loot is not this. This is my second favorite as it has silk component and moisturizing ingredients.

It can remove old skin keratin with silk powder. Makes the entire bathroom smells good as well!

My favorite is the Hair Fragrance ($20.90)!! I was expecting it to be overpowering but much to my pleasure, it was very sweet smelling. My hair can still smell good after a good long day of work and events. I would totally bring this out everyday to get rid of tobacco (no, I don’t smoke) and sweat odors.

Other than having a long lasting scent, it also treats and moisturizes the hair giving it shine and moisture. The UV-cut ingredients also protects the hair from UV rays.

Now for the giveaway…..

Justamaze, Be amazed!!

I’m back with an online shop!!
This shop not only has a lot of varieties, but also A LOT of styles to suit your different mood.

You know, at times you just wanna be girly, and at some point of the week, all you wanna do is to just be in casual, comfortable wear or stylish.

It’s a one stop for all place.

This is their latest collection – Dainty.

I like the colour of this dress, what about you?

And it doesn’t hurt to be fun.

This Peplum Shift Top (Grey) is so versatile because you can easily pair them with a pants for office or shorts for shopping/lunch date.

And as you can see, there’s casual, dressy, stylish n chic.

All these different styles can be seen in just 1 collection!

You will be lost for words when you visit their web and look at the different amount of choices they have for you. It’s hard. Extremely hard not to like anything there.

The good thing about them is that they list down their model’s height and sizes so that you can gauge if you can fit into their clothes. Thoughtful yea? You can prevent buying oversized or undersized clothes this way.

I had a hard time picking my choices as well but I ended up with a hot red tank dress because it was quite similar to the dress on top and I don’t think I have and red dress as hot as this.

The material was also comfy and stretchy.
This dress is not in the latest collection but they have this in nude as well!
This was initially my first choice but I wanted to have a fairer effect 馃檪
Yeap, you can cheat by wearing darker or louder clothes to look fairer!

I also got this A lined Midi Skirt (Light Blue) for myself!
I love how feminine one can look with this.

I am still searching for a similar top like hers to match the skirt!

Do let me know if you come across any! 馃檪

The lady running the shop is really friendly and responds pretty fast so you can shop and pay with ease 馃檪

This July, Crabtree & Evelyn launches an entirely new Hand Wash Collection, available in 8 fragrances and colours.

Crabtree & Evelyn draws upon its hand-care expertise to create a new collection of conditioning hand washes. Formulated to gently cleanse and condition the skin, each hand wash is infused with a delightful fragrance to transform a simple ritual into an experience.

Each hand wash is luxuriously lathering and pH balanced to be gentle on hands.

The new Hand Wash Collection comprises of the following fragrances:

路 Citron, Honey and Coriander
路 Pomegranate, Argan and Grapeseed
路 Rosewater

I received Iris from them and my my, Crabtree & Evelyn’s packaging never fails.

The exquisite scent of orris from the root of the iris flower is blended with precious sandalwood, sensuous patchouli and a hint of fresh vetiver in this vibrantly fragranced hand wash. It is formulated with conditioning iris florentina, peony, white magnolia and elderflower extracts.

After washing the hands, it is always important to moisturize so accompanied by the handwash, comes an Ultra-Moisturising Hand Therapy 100g ($33).

The award winning Ultra-Moisturising Hand Therapy is formulated with conditioning ingredients to moisturise and soften hands. It also improve skin barrier function to reduce moisture loss for softer and more hydrated skin.

All in one. Thoughtful aren’t they?

Etude House – I’m Blooming Skincare

What kind of skincare products are you attracted to most?

Price? Packaging?聽
Country of origin?

For me it is definitely effectiveness and packaging!

And do you know that Etude house have very nice smelling and pretty packaging products?!

I went “Omg they are so pretty!” when I saw them. I bet you are going to say the same too.

I’ll let the pictures do justice for the brand/products.

First up, they have facial mist of Pure Green Tea, Essential Flower and Canola Honey.

Each mist serves a different function to cater to the different skin type.

Pure Green Tea: Sebum Control Mist
– Hydrates thirsty skin while controling oil and shine, providing soft powdery skin.
– Contains 95.5% of early summer green tea extract that balances out skin’s moisture level for a moist inside with a soft, powdery outside.

Canola Honey: Deep Moisture Mist
– Provides instant hydrating relief to skin, locking in long-lasting vital moisture.
– Contains 81.9% of Honey extract that delivers deep, rich moisture and nourishment to skin.

Essential Flower: Brightening Mist
– Brightens up dull and exhausted skin and smoothes out rough texture, providing a clear, milky-white complexion.
– Contains 93.9% of flower extracts that add brightness to the skin.

All of them smells really really nice and I can’t really decide on which one is my favorite.
If I would have to, I would probably pick Canola Honey which helps in hydrating my dry skin.

Next is the cleansing series which consist of Moisture Cleansing foam, Clear cleansing water and Brightening water gel.

The clear cleansing water contains plant origin surfactant. It is mild (so do not worry about it being harsh or if your skin can’t take it). Though mild, it is effective in removing thick makeup.

And know what? You do not need to rinse it off with additional water. Very convenient right?!

Imagine wiping and washing your whole face with just clear cleansing water and cotton pads.

Time saving. Very convenient for people who always reach home late and is lazy to remove full make up.

Brightening Wash-off Gel contains flower and plant-origin powder. Suitable for daily wash and gently removes dead skin cells, providing smooth, supple skin. As you wash your face, it strengthens the skin’s natural vitability.

Lastly, the Moisture Cleansing Foam gently removes impurities with its fine bubbles, providing full hydration to skin right after cleansing without any signs of dryness and helps maintain fresh, blooming, healthy skin.

Skincare is not the end. It is also important to use fine and soft pads during cleansing.

Thee cotton pads have 5 layers each and made of 100% pure and soft cotton!

I like this I’m Blooming Bubble Peeling Dual Pad because it was two different textured sides that each have its own function.

One side with foam mesh for moist bubble cleansing and other side with microfiber texture for effective exfoliation and peeling.

Shall we embark on this blooming journey together?

Let’s BLOOM away~

of floral and make ups // marriage

I like floral prints. I think they actually make a girl look more demure 馃檪

June is going to be an awesome month for me because I’ll be out of the university by the first week of June and I am going to be my one of my cousin’s sisters for her wedding in the second week.

Looking forward to the Hen’s night. This is my first time!

Lots of people around me are getting married/applying for flats. What kind of age group do you think is the most appropriate to be planning all these?

I am really not as young as I look but not of marriage age yet (to me. I don’t wanna be a young mom/wife or anything). I feel that both parties should be financially stable enough to afford a flat before talking about the remaining plans. Paying for the flat shouldn’t be a guy’s thing anymore given that the living expenses in Singapore is no longer the same as the past.

Anyway, my cousin isn’t really that young (not that old either). She’s a few years older than me and they have been dating since….. Can’t remember when, but at least 7-8 years already? I was just thinking about myself. I can’t imagine leaving my parents/dog. I think I would probably cry like shit LOL. And no, would never marry young unless financially stable enough.

Please bless me with better skin and slimmer body contour and jaw.
