Hello again!!

Happy New Year 2015! I am so glad that I am able to come back and to write again. My blog has been silent for few weeks and I miss blogging so much! There are so many things going on in my life now that I didn’t even have the time to read & write blogposts for a while. I hope that I would have more time and energy now to continue writing as frequent as before. Blogging has been part of my life for the past few years, and neglecting this blog for a while has made me miss the blogging community so much. So I shall stop my rambling and start talking about The Body Shop Drops of Youth Sleeping Mask.

The product comes in a glass tube and comes with a spatula. The mask looks thick inside the jar but when you scoop it and apply it onto your skin, you can feel that the texture is not thick at all; in fact, it feels light and it transforms into gel texture. Drops of Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask is packed with ingredients extracted from Edelweiss – the flower is able to survive in dry and cold weather in the alps.

Lately I have been obsessed with mask – I went nuts trying so many types of masks. When TBS is launching their mask, I became so excited to try it. I received this product few days ago and went to try it on my face immediately. I applied my night skin care regime (toner – serum – moisturiser) and I add one more layer of TBS Sleeping Mask and went to sleep. The texture feels light upon application and what I like about it is that the scent is not strong at all. So for those of you who are sensitive to strong scent, give this one a try! The next day I can feel that my skin is restored, it feels more hydrated. I am still using this mask daily up till now and I’m looking forward to see more positive result :)

 

The Body Shop recommends a specially designed massage technique to apply this mask. Screen Shot 2015-01-07 at 5.55.59 pm

Other than the Bouncy Sleeping Mask; The Body Shop also launch an addition to its Drop of Youth Range ! Wonderblur is the last step of your beauty routine before make-up. This lightweight blur instantly smoothes skin texture, visibly reducing fine lines and pores for an all-day flawless look.

Here’s the swatch of wonderblurYou can see some visible lines on the back of my hand. Then after applying wonderblur on the back of my hand, I can immediately tell the difference! The lines has been blurred and it doesn’t look as visible as before. Wonderblur is meant to be the last step of your skincare routine before you apply your make up. With wonderblur, your make up should be looking more flawless as it creates a smooth canvas for the foundation to glides in smoothly. The picture below is the swatch:

Alright then! This post wraps my first blogpost in 2015, I hope to be able to write more in the future! :)

The Body Shop Honeymania Range

Hi everyone!
 
 
Do you love honey?
It’s great to have a cup of lemon tea with honey, or just to have a tea spoon of honey everyday. Honey is nutritious, sweet and most importantly it is a natural product!

The Body Shop® Honey’s The Bees Knees!

We believe The Body Shop® Community Fair Trade honey is something extra special. We source it from the remote Sheka rainforest in the Ethiopian Highlands, a biodiversity hotspot that’s protected by UNESCO.

- Our Sheka honey has a very distinctive taste and smell because of the fragrant rainforest flowers that the bees collect the nectar from. Its light floral aroma makes it distinct from any other honey.

- The African honey bees that produce our honey are free to roam the rainforest. Every day, the bees communicate through ‘dancing’ to direct each other to the tastiest flowers.

- The honey selected for use in our products is of the highest quality – in fact it’s good enough to eat! It’s sold by high-end brands as table honey.

Wild About Bees

The bees that produce our Community Fair Trade honey are wild; they choose to colonise the hive and thenmove onto a new home after harvesting.

In contrast, standard commercial beekeeping is closer to factory farming, with bees living in the same hive year after year. Their diets may be may subsidised with sugar to make the honey sweeter. This method of farming often requires the heavy use of veterinary medicine to treat the illnesses that result from dense hives.

Ensuring Exceptional Quality

We work with the highly skilled Beza Mar beekeepers who practise ‘barefoot beekeeping’ or ‘bee whispering’.

They work in harmony with the bees’ natural cycles using traditional techniques that have been passed down from generation to generation. These methods support the sustainable use of the Sheka rainforest and also mean we can be assured of first-class honey for use in our products.

You Won’t Bee-lieve It!

You might think The Body Shop® puts a lot of effort into creating the amazing Honeymania™ range… but it’s not nearly as much work as the bees put in! To gather enough honey to make one of every product in our Honeymania™ collection, it takes almost 100 bees travelling over 2,100km so they can harvest the nectar from nearly 50,000 flowers!* Don’t worry, the bees don’t miss the honey that we use. A strong bee colony can produce two to three times more honey than bees need!

July Empties!

IMG_5310

 

Hello Everyone!

It’s been two months since I wrote my last “empties” post. I didn’t have much finished products last month so I thought I will just wait until the next month where I would have more finished product. So here it is, I am going to write a short review on the products which I finished in the last two months.

1. Bifesta Eye Make Up Remover

This make up remover works wonderfully to swipe away my eye makeup. It’s a very effective product to remove eyeshadow or even waterproof eyeliner. I love how this products easily cleans up my eye make up. It is priced reasonably at below $15 (I couldn’t remember the exact price).

Will I repurchase this again? Definitely

2. The Body Shop Olive Scrub

I simply love this scrub because of its texture. It’s very effective to remove dead skin cells. I have been using this since my high school time and still enjoy using it until now. My skin feels so smooth after I applied this scrub.

Will I repurchase this again? Definitely

3. L’Oreal Extraordinary Oil

Recently I have reviewed this product hereI mentioned how much I love the product in the review post on this product. It makes my hair feels very smooth without making it feel sticky. I usually use 3 pumps after I washed my hair and I can feel how smooth my hair feel after applying this oil. I also love the smell this product has; it’s a mixture of macadamia and some flowers.

Will I repurchase this again? Definitely

4. No7 Beautiful Skin Day Cream for Dry / Very Dry 

I purchased this product when I was in the UK last January. I had a very dry skin there and my usual skincare routine were not creamy enough to combat the cold weather that dries my skin. I bought this product from Boots to help me moisturize my skin.

This cream has a thicker consistency and it is packed with SPF 15. It helps me to protect my skin from being dry for few hours in the cold weather and I need to reapply this cream after that. In Singapore, where the weather is humid, this cream can last for a longer hour.

Will I repurchase this again? Maybe

5. The Body Shop Seaweed Clarifying Toner

Before I apply any makeup, usually I will cleanse my face with toner. This Seaweed Clarifying Toner works well for people with combination skin. I have been loving this product for long time but recently I feel that it’s a bit drying for my cheek area. I still like this product but currently I am trying some other products that might work better for me.

Will I repurchase this again? Maybe 

 

Yay that I have finished all these products. I hope I will have sufficient product to post next month, so we’ll see ;)

 

Thank you for reading!

My First Empties Post

Hello all,

This post is my first post on my emptied products. I’ve been reading many beauty blogs who have featured their emptied products and I love reading their short review of each products. So after a while, I decided to write a short review on each products I have finished. I’ll try to do this post once in one or two months so that I’ll have enough number of products to talk about :)

IMG_5185

 

1. The Body Shop Body Butter Duo Macadamia

If you love macadamia, this is for you! It smells amazing; it makes me feel like drinking a cup of hazelnut latte :) What I love about this body buter duo is that it contains two texture of products. It has body lotion and body butter inside this tube. Usually I’d apply the body lotion in the morning and the body butter in the evening. Both lotion and the body butter are very moisturizing. The only downside of this body butter is that it can feel very sticky. Whenever I use this body butter, I always make sure that I’ll be sleeping in my long pyjamas because I don’t want my bedsheet to smell macadamia :p.

Will I repurchase this again: Yes but I’d try a different scent.

2. Bio Oi

I have reviewed this product earlier. You can read it here.

Will I repurchase this again: Maybe.

3. Ma Chérie Hair Oil

I am currently in love with oils! I love face oils, hair oils, body oils, you name it :D Ma Chérie is a product launched in Japan and it’s part of Shiseido group. I love the smell of Ma Chérie products; it has fruity scent and it makes me feel girly. This hair oil moisturizes my hair well and it doesn’t make my hair feel sticky. I also love the look of its super cute packaging. It’s retailing at about $20 per bottle in Singapore.

Will I repurchase this again: Maybe

4. Crabtree & Evelyn Rosewater Hand Therapy

I know I have not reviewed anything from Crabtree & Evelyn but I am actually loving this brand to the max! I just love the design of Crabtree & Evelyn brand; it looks classy and it reminds me of the classic English look. Crabtree & Evelyn Rosewater Hand Therapy (100ml) is very convenient to be put on my daily make up bag. The rose scent is nice and it’s not over pouring. It’s also non sticky so it’s good to be used anytime of the day.

Will I repurchase this again: Definitely

5. NARS Light Reflecting Powder

I have reviewed this product before, you can read it here. This is by far my favorite finishing/touch up powder. It has oil control ability; my face doesn’t feel oily even after 10 hours without touch up. It makes my skin looks glowy but doesn’t leave white cast when photographed. I finished this powder after 3 months of usage.

Will I repurchase this again: Definitely

I hope this post give you some idea of the products I have finished using. Have you tried any of the products I mentioned here?
