Removing make up has never been so easy

! IMPT: Cosmetics make you pretty, but if you dont  remove your make up throughly, you will get clogged pores.

With proper removal of make up, your skin will be able to breathe and regenerate itself during the whole night while you sleep.

Without proper cleansing, your pores will be clogged, and cause you to experience breakouts more frequently. When makeup becomes impacted into your facial pores, it makes them look larger and more noticeable. and so its very essential to remove all makeup products thoroughly and completely to avoid blackheads and pimples.

Bioré Cleansing Oil Cotton Sheets [Retailing @ $16.50]

Gentle on your skin but tough on makeup, alcohol-free Biore Cleansing Oil Cotton Sheets removes all traces of makeup easily- even waterproof mascara! Cleansing oil does not remain on skin so there is no greasy, sticky feeling after use. Made of 100% natural cotton fibre and contains moisturising agents that makes skin feel soft, smooth and supple, not tight. Enjoy the convenience of quick and easy makeup removal anytime, anywhere with Biore Cleansing Oil Cotton Sheets.

I especially like products with a proper lid

48 sheets in a pack, refillable


within 30 seconds, or even lesser, all makeup removed!

I'm really tempted to get this ever since i saw its ad on TV. Its super amazing. and when i saw Laura using it during one of our impromptu stay over, it became a must get product during my next visit to watsons.

The travel pack (10pcs), retailing at $2.95, is exceptionally handy for me.  With Biore Cleansing Oil Cotton Sheets, there's no longer the need to bring bottles of cleansers, cotton wools, cotton buds etc etc.

The wipes are fresh smelling and provide an easy way for removing make up when you’re a little lazy. They do an excellent job on waterproof mascara, and they don’t leave skin feeling tight after use. 1 sheet is sufficient to clean my entire face, making it really economical to use!

I really love this to bits!! The after usage experience was a lot better as compared to another brand of makeup removal sheets.

Bioré Hydra-Clear Makeup Remover [Retailing @ $22.90]


Biore- the No. 1 Makeup Remover brand in Japan* brings you its latest innovation, Biore Hydra-Clear Makeup Remover. Suitable for both face and eyes makeup removal, this rinse-off makeup remover from Japan contains a highly effective cleansing ingredient. It gently and effortlessly removes all makeup, even waterproof eye makeup, without rubbing or tugging. The water-based formula leaves skin clean without greasy or tight feeling. Feel the refreshing difference as your skin is restored to its original, clean bare condition.
Its pretty much like a water-based cleansing oil, without having the need to use a facial cotton pad.

200ml. It should be able to last me for a decent period of time. btw, I only use about a "50 cent coin" amount to clean my face thoroughly.


My essentials

eyeliners, eye shadows, mascara, eyebrow liner, blusher...

2-3 drops for this. using a finger to rub lightly on the area, you can see how all the makeup smudge

Effortlessly, I ran my hand under the running water of the tap and there weren't any traces left on the back of my palm!

As amazing as the Biore Cleansing Oil Cotton Sheet<3 <3 <3 <3 <3

I use Biore Hydra-Clear Makeup Remover when i wear heavier make up and have been using it for 3 days. I personally feel that it removes my make up really well, even for my eye makeup. When used, the Biore Hydra-Clear Makeup Remover will start emulsifying on its own almost instantly. I lightly rubbed the makeup remover and it melted the eye liner, eye shadow, mascara etc. Oh, by the way, pour the make up remover onto your palm and apply it directly. Theres no need to use cotton pad :) Another product to place in the bathroom.

The product feels really mild on my skin. I experienced zero tingling feelings even on my very sensitive eyes. Unlike the makeup remover i used previously, Biore Hydra-Clear Makeup Remover is non-greasy (as pointed out in the packaging).  2 words - "SUPER AMAZING

Want to personally try the No. 1 Makeup Remover Brand (Biore) in Japan? Heres your chance.

When you no longer need to use "bad hair day" as an excuse

Its pretty irritating when very important days happen to be my bad hair day as well. you know the "i tried to make myself pretty but my hair tries to be nasty and disobey" period of time. This sucks.

Do you know?

Typically a flat iron or curling tong uses a temperature of 175 degree to style hair – same as the temperature used by clothes dryer to wring out moisture from wet laundry. AND Females, in general, spend an average of one hour and 53 minutes a week washing, blow drying and styling our hair. That may not sound like a lot, but by the time we reach the age of 65, we will have spent more than seven months of our lives on our hair!

So can you imagine how much your hair ends (i.e. last 15cm of your hair) has gone through? This probably explains why the more common hair problems (dryness, frizziness, tangles and split ends) always occurs when your hair is long. As it gets longer and longer, more hair problems!!! and once your hair is damaged, it lost its shine and liveliness and become dull. so sad to be a woman :(

But with Essentials Hair Care range, i can say bye to bad hair day forever!! To correct myself, in fact, all of us can say bye to bad hair day and the scary word - DULLNESS.

Pink Series: NUANCE AIRY
Orange Series: RICH PREMIER

PhotobucketTo cut everything short, here's a short summary of each products.

Among the entire range, i like the hair essence the most.

Encompassing the Essential Nuance Airy Anti-Frizz Serum and Essential Rich Premier Nourishing Care Lotion, this leave-on treatment range will repair hair surface and protect it from external aggression such as styling, blow-drying and UV. Just a few pumps and apply. Viola! Beautiful, shiny hair from root to tips, even for the last 15cm. The effect lasts all-day long too!



Essential Nuance Airy Anti-Frizz Serum - This lightweight and non-greasy oil-based treatment helps to tame away frizz and flyaways so hair becomes instantly smooth and bouncy all-day long. Even No. 1 Blogger in Singapore, Xiaxue swears by it for her mane that is damaged by the bleaching and daily styling.

Suitable for: Dry, damaged hair

Recommendation: Use as a daily pre-styling treatment to protect from blow-drying and styling damage or as an instant shine boost to smoothen and  moisturize, making hair more manageable - anytime, anywhere.

Usage: Use on damp or dry hair, concentrating on the damaged area. Spread the serum evenly onto hair. Style as usual.


Essential Rich Premier Nourishing Care Lotion - Unlike most of the leave-on treatment lotion, this concentrated lotion gets adsorbed easily, leaving hair soft and manageable all day long.

Suitable for: Dry, damaged hair

Recommendation: Use as a daily pre-styling treatment to protect from blow-drying and styling damage or as an instant softening nourishment to reduce unwanted kinks and tangles in hair.

Usage: Use on damp or dry hair, concentrating on the damaged area. Spread the lotion evenly onto hair. Style as usual.

Ask me which one i like? i wont be able to answer your question, cause i like both. I mean, they help to meet different needs and i think i will use them based on what i feel of the hair on that day. Maybe its just an excuse so i can go watsons buy more stuff and earn some points, but i think it makes a lot of sense. We have lots of skin care products, for different needs and different timings. I think the hair need equal attention and care too!!

Lets talk about the  Rich Premier Nourishing Care Lotion first, since i like orange now. Yes, thats the one in orange packaging.  The hair felt really soft and more manageable the entire day. As in, i don't really have to comb my hair with my hands when im outside anymore.  plus point: shiny hair!! The lotion makes me smell like some kind of fairy too :) It has a very sweet smell and i can smell it even after a few hours under the hot sun. Unlike other lotions, the rich premier nourishing care lotion is non-greasy and is absorbed by the hair quickly. ~saves me the trouble of washing my hand immediately after using it~

p.s. If the bottle (packaging) comes in transparent bottle, just like the Nuance Airy essence, then everything would be perfect!! For now, the amount of essence left in the bottle has to be estimated.

If you are facing the problem of frizziness, use the essence in pink bottle. Like its tagline, it transforms my hair instantly like magic. It is really effective in taming my frizzing hair! It makes my hair much easier to comb through after use, especially the hair ends. I think i'm going to stock this up. One in office, one at home and maybe one in my bag. Seriously, this is something to die for. It has some kind of floral scent. hmm, maybe rose.  It doesn't belong to the strong fragrance category, so no worries if you are not the girly girly type. Like the nourishing care lotion, this serum is easily absorbed with no oily after feel. I personally think this is a plus point too, especially for hair care products.

Both essence can be used on both towel-dried/damp or dry hair, i feel. However, I prefer to use it on hair that is already completely dry. Thats when i can feel the effectiveness of the essence. Pump out 2-3 pumps onto your palms, then rub your hands before applying it onto your hair. Just like how we apply skin care products. Hmmm, i would recommend that you only apply the essence to the last 15cm of your hair, and not to your scalp.

Okay, enough said. Pictures speak louder than words. See to believe

How my hair look like at the end of the day. 

sometimes, it look like this
