Innisfree No Sebum Mineral Pact

6 Reasons why Innisfree No Sebum Mineral Pact failed to wow me

  Innisfree No Sebum Mineral Pact has received such fabulous online reviews that I had to buy it just before boarding a plane at Singapore Changi Airport. It was priced at a good discount and I normally couldn’t resist when I see a value buy! Can this mineral pact absorb excess sebum? Do you have to reapply this often throughout the day?

L'Occitane Lavender Hand Cream

Review of L’Occitane Lavender Hand Cream

  L’Occitane and Crabtree & Evelyn have something in common. They are well-known for their elegantly-packaged hand cream that smells so luxurious and high-end. And of course, don’t forget their premium pricing too. But, which is better? I’ve first started using Crabtree & Evelyn hand cream more than a decade ago and adored the then one-of-a-kind metal tube packaging that’d separated premium from mass-market hand creams.  Of course, this style has since been copied even by …

Innisfree Apple Juicy Lip & Eye Remover

Innisfree Apple Juicy Lip & Eye Remover | Is it better than my Holy Grail?

  Guess what’s my holy grail eye makeup remover? Strictly-speaking, I do not have one yet. But if Lancome Bi-Facil isn’t that pricey, it would have easily been on my holy grail list. I have been using it for at least 10 years, albeit on an on-off basis. A few months ago, I received some samples from Innisfree when I joined them as a member.

Benefit they're Real! mascara

Review of Benefit’s they’re real! Mascara | Fallen out of love

  The first time I used Benefit’s they’re Real! Mascara, I was impressed with how it gave me luscious and jet black lashes that were reminiscent of a poster pin-up girl. As you know, a Pin Up look focuses on a few key makeup pointers, one of which is to give strong emphasis to the eyes. It is often achieved with the use of black mascara or full falsies. Benefit they’re Real! mascara delivers on this …

Gel Manicure by Nail Rooms

Review of Nails Room Manicure | Sutera Mall, Johor Bahru (JB)

  How about a gel manicure for half the price? What’s the catch? Well, you’ll have to cross the causeway.  Let me share with you about my recent visit to Nails Room, a nail parlor at Sutera Mall. Sutera Mall is a family-oriented mall located in Johor Bahru (JB). Instead of big brand names, its stores are mostly local brands, many of which you would not have heard of.
