Video Review will be up this weekend

I’ll be posting a video review during the weekend!

It’s my first time doing this, so please bear with me >< Actually the only reason why I have decided to try it is because my DSLR is always getting borrowed and stuff… and I’m really too lazy to process pictures.

Usually I prefer to get the photo right while taking, so no editing, because it’s such a pain. I wonder how bloggers like KotaKoti or Xiaxue find so much time and patience to edit their faces because it is such a painful process!! *rage*  The most I can do is airbrush a bit over bad cases of acne  and even then it looks red. So I avoid taking pictures when my acne gets bad… 

I tried changing the shape of my face for a lark one day to try and copy the ‘doll’ look that tons of bloggers are editing their faces to… and needless to say, it failed. My chin and my eyebrows swapped positions or something, and my features went into a 180 degrees rotation. It was pretty funny but I was kinda sad too :/ Oh well!

Oh I wanted to add that I will get really irritated at my face (the grammar seems off here) if I have to spend hours editing my pictures, so I’d rather not do it because I’m stuck with this face for the rest of my life. *laughs*

Don’t worry, I will add the main points down in text too, in case I speak weirdly hahaha! Nope, no captions- I am a total failure with computers and cannot do anything other than navigating the Internet and using Microsoft Word… and turning my laptop on and off. I wouldn’t know how to insert captions, and I won’t follow a script so it will be a long and tiring process to transcribe whatever I say!

Yep, that’s it. To end off, random uncensored picture of me… 

 

Can you recognise me?? 😀

I’m the one on the bottom left! (that’s my usual expression)

Okay, okay, it’s a rendering of me in chibi form, done by yours truly. 😛

Okay it’s not as good I know, my friend azaleias (Instagram username) is HEAPS TONS BAJILLION TIMES BETTER. She hand-draws and colours everything!! The Gaara and Sasori picture was dedicated to me for my birthday hehe 🙂

Sorry for the randomness but hey, you discover new cool things with me everyday! 

Lactacyd Revitalize Youth Reviving Daily Feminine Wash

MY EXAMS ARE OVER!!

HALLELUJAH!!

Today’s post will be kinda sensitive and all *cough* because I will be reviewing a feminine wash. Well, that’s a euphemism actually. Feminine wash sounds way better than… well… *cough*

(Gosh I think I will be coughing a lot in this post)

I have decided to put off the mystery post (fine, it’s a nail polish post) because I have school right tomorrow and painted nails aren’t allowed. *aggrieved*  

 <— me going to school

So this is how it looks like on the outside. It’s 250ml- (look at the picture)

 

so I expect it will last for a long time. My friend recommended this to me- the crazy thing is, she uses it as conditioner for her hair and also as a face wash!! Crazy right? Then I went to do some research on other feminine washes like ‘Summer’s Eve’ (hey my name!) and ‘Dove’ and I found tons of reviews of people doing the same thing!

I’m still kind of stunned. I don’t think I’ll be using it as a face wash but I might try it as a conditioner. Apparently it works because it’s acidic like conditioners (pH 3.5).

I got this during a sale by Beauty Language (it’s invading malls everywhere in Singapore) and initially I was looking for the ‘White Intimate’ or the normal one, but I didn’t see it on sale so I just got this since it was the only one instock. I was like ‘I’m not exactly old but oh well’.

AND THEN I SAW THE OTHER KINDS ON SALE THE NEXT DAY. GRRRRR.

 

Anyway, it came with a free pump nozzle (separate) and feminine wipes to keep yourself clean on the go.  

I really love the smell of this thing- it smells so mild, like what you would use for babies, and I have been using it for crazy things like:

1) Washing my hands

2) Cleaning random containers because it smells nice

3) Mixing it with my foot scrub in hopes the acid will somehow kill off my dead skin

I really wouldn’t advise you to try all these though. At your own risk  Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

 Okay, on to more proper things.

I’ll show you how it looks like- 

(that’s not a pimple- it’s a mole! I’m getting too lazy to watermark all my photos so just don’t steal them off me.)

It has this silver-y appearance, and produces quite a lot of foam when rubbed!

(after rubbing for a few seconds, without water! With water, more foam is produced- the foam helps to reach hard-to-reach areas!)

My skin always feels so soft and smooth after using this~  *happy face* 

I think this makes a good addition to your bathing routine. Normal soaps are usually alkaline and can harm your *cough* area, so… well… I’d suggest a trip to Lactacyd’s website so you can learn more about what is suitable for you! (and save me the awkward explanations)

Rating❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤ (9/10)

Price: 19.90 SGD for a set of two 250ml bottles, a nozzle and feminine wipes (10 wipes)

E.L.F Wet Gloss Lash & Brow Clear Mascara

You’ll have to excuse me for the lack of pictures for the next few posts!

My family is on holiday and they’ve taken the DSLR, so…. no pictures. ;-;

Anyway, I’ll be reviewing the Wet Gloss Lash & Brow Clear Mascara from E.L.F today.

credits to beautybeaucoup.blogspot.com

I love the affordability of E.L.F products, and I use this everyday because it gives my lashes a subtle lift and length without coming off as overly fake- it looks like you just washed your face and the water stayed on your lashes!

I guess that’s the ‘wet look’ for you! Wonder if Gatsby’s hair gel works the same way? *thoughtful* Would be so much cheaper, wouldn’t it? *feels consistency of mascara* Hmmm… maybe I just hit upon some industrial trade secret!

Okay, jokes aside (I don’t want to be sued), if you are looking for something with heavy-duty lifting and curling, this mascara is not for you. In fact, I find that my lashes are less curled than before (my lashes naturally curl up at the ends)- I get longer, sweeping lashes. This would suit people who already have decent lashes, and are looking for something to brighten up their eyes without coming across as heavily made up.

This does not have very long lasting power and is not waterproof or smudgeproof, so a re-application is needed after 2-3 hours. You can also revive it with a careful swipe of water with a clean mascara wand or if you do not have one on hand, swipe your finger in an upwards movement (be very careful though). This is a trick I found out after fretting over clumping lashes- one too many re-applications will make your lashes clump.

The tube is a double-ended one, labeled ‘eyelash’ and ‘eyebrow’ on each end, but I just use both ends for my lashes. The wands are the same anyway. I really like the wands because they do a good job of separating the lashes, and there is this part at the top of the tube that gets rid of excess product so the brush won’t contain too much gel and make your lashes clump! One or two swipes of the wand should do the trick- this isn’t one of those ‘false lashes effect’ mascaras, and you want to avoid clumping.

Did I mention I really hate clumping lashes? …no? Well, I think it shows in my post.

Well, that’s all guys! Pictures to be added up soon (hopefully)!

MySpringIt dupe, the EpiStick Facial Hair Remover Review

I realised I’ve not reviewed any beauty tools yet!

Partly because it’s kinda embarrassing… 

I’m sure most of you would have heard of MySpringIt. It is this spring thingy that claims to get all the fine facial hairs off…

So.. does it really work? Well, I’ve tried it and I’m telling you that it does!

It pulls up hairs from the root, which hurts a lot at first and then after awhile, you get used to it.

Avoid tugging too much at stubborn hairs- roll it gently up or down (I think outwards?) and if the hairs are not coming out, leave it and come back to it later.

I’ve inserted a video from Youtube to show you how it works. I was using it the wrong way (bending it back and forth, though that worked fine too) until I saw her video, so embarrassing omg. Hers is a dupe too, because no one would buy a spring THAT expensive. Like what, 20 USD? I might as well buy an awesome epilator!

[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E3tV2-Glv_Q]

Guess how much mine cost?

1 SGD. Like 0.80 USD!! Whahahahaha! Don’t believe me? I have a screenshot to prove it.

 In your face, everyone who’s ever bought the actual thing!

Unfortunately, this seller is all out of stock, but you can this at a similar price- 1.80 SGD from here. Oh gosh I sound like such a cheapskate. But hey, 80 cents can buy you a nice ice cream! Maybe those cheap Nestle kinds you see in those mini marts… or a roll of Mentos.

Oh oh and the MySpringIt website says you can use it for up to a year without replacement. Why would you need to replace it? Because the spring gets loose or something? *confused*

But I digress.

For people with sensitive skin, you may want to put a bit of baby powder before using this or aloe vera gel after, because like all hair removal methods that use pulling/ tugging, if you pull up your skin too much or too hard you start getiing little red bumps/ welts or even break out with tons of tiny pimples! 

I experienced the tiny red bumps when I tried to remove the baby hair around my upper chest and neck. My upper lip was fine, though.

It doesn’t seem to work much for leg hair or arm hair, but it works fine on your underarm hair. I thus concluded that this spring thingy works best on tiny short hairs, so maybe that’s why it didn’t work for the long hairs on my arm.

I think this entire post was full of TMI about my hair habits :X Speaking about these things are still kinda taboo in Singapore, y’know? 

Hope it helped, so my embarrassment would be worth it!
