Clean Skin With Simple Steps: Simple Micellar Cleansing Water

Simple-Micellar-Cleansing-Water-And-Wipes-Review_11

There are many things in life that are not quite as simple as black and white, most of them beyond our control. For those that I have control over, I try to keep it simple, especially when it comes to skincare. Gone are the days where I used 9 different products after cleansing. I realized it all boils down to the very first step – proper makeup removal. Even when I don’t apply makeup, I make it a point to remove the impurities and dirt that had accumulated on my skin throughout the day from environmental pollutants or oil and smoke from cooking in the kitchen or sunscreen.

It is imperative to find the right type of makeup removal. I worked out that cleansing oil and milk don’t quite sit well with my oily skin, while it appreciates water-based makeup removers.

How Does Micellar Water Work?

I’m pretty sure you’ve heard about Micellar Water, what with all that buzz about it being a magical potion that removes makeup, dirt, and oil from the skin without rinsing. It doesn’t dry out the skin, and some brands’ even provide hydration benefits.

It looks and feels like plain old water, and Simple Micellar Cleansing Water has NO artificial fragrances, colors, or harsh chemicals, making it THE magic potion for sensitive skin like mine.

No Time To Slather? Try Vaseline Spray Moisturizer

I cannot get enough of body lotion. My skin definitely benefits from hydration, moisturization, restoration of softness, but what I like most is the precious ‘me-time’ that I get when I sit down at the end of a long day, under dim light, massaging tired muscles with the aid of a lotion, and recalibrating the senses for a good night’s sleep. **Ommmm**

But ain’t nobody got time to slather for a namaste moment every night! Sometimes I’m dead beat from work and the only affair I want to have is that with my bed. Lol.

In the morning, I’d rather spend more time getting my makeup right than moisturizing. I know, we are all guilty of this.

But what if a lotion comes in the form of a spray and gets absorbed in SECONDS?

Where there is demand, there will be supply. But sometimes brands create the demand to let us see how much easier life can be. I think the Vaseline Spray Moisturizer is what we never knew we have all been waiting for! I never thought of getting moisturizer out of a spray nozzle, but now that I’ve used it, I wish everything came in spray form. Lol.

People associate Vaseline strongly with petroleum jelly, so it’s good to see them increase their product offerings. Of course, Vaseline Spray Moisturizer contains micro droplets of Vaseline’s renowned jelly so you get the same nourishing goodness for your skin without the stickiness of the traditional petroleum jelly. 😀

Vaseline Spray Moisturizer resembles a can of hairspray or sunscreen, the latter in spray form being extremely in trend at the moment. Sprays are hygienic because no dirty fingers dig into a tub thus eliminating cross-contamination. Vaseline Spray Moisturizer has an internal, spray system that uses compressed air to deliver the moisturizer, which is protected by an external twist-lock mechanism to prevent spills.

Top 5 Causes Of Dry Skin & How To Fix Them: NIVEA Body Milk

The best way to assess the practicality of a body moisturizer in Singapore’s hot and humid weather is to apply it before bed, wake up the next day, don’t shower, then go about your business for the day. If your skin still feels soft and hydrated hours later, despite the relentless heat and running in and out of air-conditioned enclosures, then you’ll know you’ve found the right one!

I appreciate that NIVEA, despite being a household brand that has served generations of children, continues to reinvent itself and puts research into producing more products to suit the current market needs. One thing that doesn’t change though – and which I hope will never change – is its signature NIVEA smell. Everyone knows a NIVEA when they smell one. :)

I was already a fan of the NIVEA Intensive Moisture Body Milk before NIVEA sent the 250ml bottle to me. I previously picked up the 75ml  at Watsons coz it looked cute and portable. I’ve been using it since, so how timely that I’ve been given the chance to share my fondness of their #1 Body Milk!

10 New Rules For A Clean & Healthy V

Lactacyd-Feminine-Wash-Range_1

I really only started paying attention to feminine hygiene for the intimate area after I got introduced to Lactacyd last year. From then on, I could feel the difference and improvements having used Lactacyd Feminine Wash every time I showered.

Because I received all 5 bottles previously as well, I shared them with my mum and sister coz good things must share, right? 😀 They like it too! I kept for my own use White Intimate and Soft & Silky. I am unable to judge whether there’s a significant lightening of the area after using White Intimate lol, but I do feel that both provide moisturization, with Soft & Silky slightly more because it has 10% extra milk moisture.

It matters less which of the Lactacyd Feminine Wash variants you use, what’s important is that you use a dedicated feminine wash to keep the delicate environment of the vaginal area in check. I wrote about the other variants in my previous post, do have a look! :) Lactacyd is the Number 1 Feminine Hygiene wash brand in Singapore that is highly prescribed by doctors and trusted by women for over 25 years.

For many, washing our V with our favorite shower gel or soap is a regular part of our daily routine. Washing with soap can cause problems that can go on without the knowledge of the cause. Regardless of how good cleaning with soap may make you feel, it still remains bad for vaginal health; an unnecessary act which is often seen as a necessity.

Of course, besides using a feminine wash that helps maintain the natural pH of your intimate area and protect it from odor and irritation, maintaining overall feminine hygiene is important to overall health. No use doing your best only during cleaning but neglecting other essential habits, right?

Here are my personal tips on how to keep your girl bits clean, sweet & healthy! 😀

Where To Find Good Quality & Affordable Makeup Brushes In Singapore

Gumtree_Cheap-Makeup-Brushes-In-Singapore_8.1

I often get the reply “But I don’t know how to use brushes or which brush to use” when people ask me what do I use to apply my makeup and I ask them back.

Considering the crazy number of brushes I own – I think I stopped counting at 180? – it might seem torturous to have to wade through the army of brushes before deciding what to use, and how to use it.

But in fact, no, usually this is more the case:

Lalalalalalalala~~ 😀

It’s precisely because I’ve gone through so many brushes that I know exactly what’s good and how to maximise each brush’s potential.

So today, I’m gonna share with you some of my commonly used brushes that are of great quality, super affordable, and easy to use. I love these brushes, that’s why I brought them in to make them accessible to more people, and at a lower price (coz there is no rent and no employees to pay LOL).

I hope through this post you’ll have a better understanding of various brushes and their versatility – every brush has more use than what its name states! You can drop me a message on the Gumtree app if you have any questions.

Christmas Shopping On Gumtree & Tips For New Sellers

Gumtree-Christmas-Edition_cover

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, isn’t it! 😀 We don’t have, nor will ever have, snow in Singapore, but everything becomes soft and beautiful and magical this time of the year, as if someone waved a fairy wand to tell the people of the land that tis’ the season for kindling the fire of hospitality.

I can’t wait to host the many parties we have planned for the coming months! It’s so exciting to finally have a place of our own. Where I sat to take this series of photos will, in a couple of weeks, sit our TV console, TV and vintage peripherals Mr Mode and I have amassed over a year. Now we’re running the last leg of house cleaning and can move in soon!

Before Christmas comes……. PRESENTS! >.< Ah, it’s always a headache for me when it comes to buying gifts – I’m really bad at it. Oh, except when it comes to buying beauty products. Yes, then I know exactly what to buy for who. Hahaha!

Thank you for your support for my Gumtree shop! I’ve added more items and I’m sure you’ll find an item or two (or 5 hoho) to gift your friends.

Gumtree-Christmas-Edition_Beauty-Sponges

Oooohhh!! Won’t you have a look at these cute little squishy sponges? ^_^ Heehee they’re so colorful and soft, they make me smile when I look at them. I kept 4 new ones for myself, adding to the 2 I already have. They are slightly more dense than the original BeautyBlenders (which you can also get from my Gumtree profile), but at fraction of the price. I’d recommend you give it a try!

They’re going for $3 each and you can choose from 9 colors. Each are packed individually.

Gumtree-Christmas-Edition_False-Eyelashes

A girl and her falsies are best friends. The Eyemazing Lashes are up on my shop too and are going for $14 each. They retail for $21.90 each. So that’s almost 40% off retail price.

5 Tips For New Sellers

Gumtree-Christmas-Edition_tips-for-new-sellers

I thought these tips might benefit those of you interested to set up your own account on Gumtree. It’s very easy to set up an account, but more can be done to increase your chances of getting your items sold.

Tip 1: Give It A Good Name

Instead of just ‘furniture’, try ‘mid century coffee table with pencil legs’. Such targeted keywords as ‘mid century’, ‘coffee table’, and ‘pencil legs’ will make your item more prominent in the search results and draw the right crowd. Since the keyword search would more closely match your title, there would be a higher chance of closing a deal. This is really just like SEO. Haha.
