[Review] — Saje Konjac Kare Yam Sponge

I have amazing girlfriends! A few weeks ago my girlfriend was visiting and brought me this. She loves it and would love that I can try it too.

It’s my first Saje product – I’ve heard of this shop before and thought they only sold fragrant oils for your home. When my girlfriend opened the package and showed me it. It wasn’t anything special – it looked like a typical sponge. I liked how it came with a container. She told me to wet the sponge and clean my face with it. I’m like cool – I usually only clean my face with my hand. I did as I was told.

It was a little weird at first because I was always reminded that any cleansing product should have foams in it. This sponge didn’t. So I read the instruction again to see if I should put some cleansing product in it. It says not to. So I only cleansed my face with the sponge. It felt like a normal sponge with nothing on it.

My face did feel smoother though. The next day my face was glowing and I was shocked. How can this sponge that looks like it has no foam or anything on it – make me glow? Interesting right? I love it ever since my first use.

It says it has 100 uses on it and the price is $9.98 plus tax. Very inexpensive. I use it every night during my bath time. A very very unique product and I’ll for sure be stocking this up. I’ve heard that these sponges sell out fast too! This will be one of my must have skincare products in my routine for sure! Stay tune more daily hauls & reviews!

Have a GRATEFUL day!!!

[Haul] — Sephora & Asian Beauty Skin Care Haul

Been awhile since I blog about beauty! I re-purchased a few makeup products from Sephora when mines ran out. I can’t live without the Kat Von D liquid eyeliner & concealer! It is definitely a must have! I returned the Tarte SPF30 sunscreen – since my girlfriend introduced me to a Japanese one.

Onto my second part of the haul which is the photo on the right. My girlfriend introduced me to all of those skin care & CC Cream. Biore UV sunscreen is a MUST have! I did a first impression review on it already – go back a few pages of my blog to check that one out! Other than that – I had the pleasure to try 3 different products. I feel so blessed to have girlfriends introducing me to new beauty products!

Have a TERRIFIC day!!!

[Review] — Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Eyes Time Complex Capsules – First Impression

Image: Google.com

My first impression with this Elizabeth Arden eye oil serum was amazing! I did not purchase my first few capsules – my girlfriend was telling me how much she loves it and brought over a few capsules for me to try. I am so grateful for girlfriends because we share a lot of beauty tips, daily life shenanigans, and etc with each other. If it wasn’t for her bringing over a few capsules – I don’t think I will ever buy an entire container of it. I always walk by it when I am at Costco but never thought of trying it out. There are way too many skin care products to try.

Here’s my first impression – I never used capsule products before and this was my first. Quite an unique concept how they put the products in capsules. It is mess free and has the right quantity of products in each capsule.

At first I was a little hesitant because its oil base. I don’t like anything oil in my skin – I don’t like the sticky oily feeling. But to my surprised – it didn’t feel oily at all. It felt very light. One capsule was enough to cover my whole face. It felt great and better than I expected.

The next morning I felt that my face was glowing. What an amazing product! Usually you need to try the products for a few weeks to know the results. This product had an instant result. Love it! I was sold!

They say to apply it twice a day but I only apply it during my night time skin care routine. That was good enough for me. I love how it helps with moisturizing and wrinkles around the eyes. I do have a few wrinkles around my eyes at this age due to rubbing my eyes every morning. It’s such a bad habit that I need to get rid of for sure!

I purchased these capsules at Costco at $38.99 plus tax from what I remembered. It comes in two containers and a total of 120 capsules. The containers itself is very classy.

If I use 1 capsule a day – it last me a good 4 months. If I feel like I need two capsules a day – it’ll last me two good months. This product is quite affordable if you buy them at Costco. I’ve seen this product sold elsewhere for double the price! I definitely will recommend this product to all of you! Amazing & affordable – what more can you ask for right? I also gave another girlfriend of mine – a few capsules to try and she loves it too!

Going into my late 20s – I’ve been taking better of my skin – so it won’t be as difficult to take care of later on. What are your thoughts of this product? Comment below to share! Stay tune for more hauls & reviews!

Have a FABULOUS day!!!

[Beauty] — First Impression of Bioré UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence SPF50 Sunscreen

My first impression of the Bioré UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence SPF50 Sunscreen was AMAZING! Yes – I am base-ing this review after trying it for the first time.

Number one thing that bothers me about applying sunscreen to my face is the stickiness and tackiness of it. That’s why I avoid sunscreen on my face most of the time. With this one – it feels like nothing was on my face after applying it! I could not believe it – it has a high SPF too!

Now I won’t be avoiding any sunscreen on my face anymore. I’ll definitely be stocking up a few bottles of these! How come I wasn’t introduced to this amazing sunscreen sooner? I highly recommend you all to try it out. It’s AMAZING! It can be easily purchase on Amazon!

Have a BEAUTIFUL day!!!

[Haul] — Sephora Beauty Haul

It’s been awhile since I did a Sephora haul. I try to stay away from Sephora because it’s a very dangerous place to be! It’s a money sucking shop. Lol okay – just kidding. I usually step my foot into this shop when I really need something.

I needed to pick up a new Sephora Matte Foundation Powder in another shade. The shade I had before was a bit too dark for me. Which I can save that for the summer times.

This is the fourth or fifth time I picked up a Laura Mercier Hydrating Face Primer. I love this product! A tube of this lasts me about half a year – its around $40.

 I also received some samples as well since I purchased these two items online during their VIB sale. I had the pleasure of receiving 15% off. Love their free shipping too!

Have a BEAUTIFUL day!!!

[Organization] — My New Beauty Shelf

e289 e290

Decided to get this bathroom organizing shelf for my beauty care and jewelry display. It took me awhile to decide what I wanted next to my vanity table.

Since this shelf was having a sale at $20 off – I decided to get it. I like the silver bar and clear glass. The price was $47.99+tax.

Not a huge shelf but this will do for now. Got my jewelry box on the top shelf. Lip sticks and display boxes on the second layer. The last two layers I stored all my beauty masks.

This looks much more tidy and organized now. I’m thinking of purchasing a second shelf when it goes on sale again. I still have quite a lot of makeup products to store and display. How do you like my organization? I love it! Stay tune for my hauls and reviews – this blog is updated regularly at 12PM Eastern Time!

[Beauty] — Maybelline Brow Drama Crayon Review

f283

Here’s my very first “First Impression” review. I saw the advertisement on Instagram and I told myself I had to try it out!

My first impression was that I love the formula of it. Loved how smooth and easily it goes on. I didn’t need to go over my brows a few times – one time does the job.

The other thing that I’m not too fond of is the thick size of the pencil – very hard to shape my brows. I did end up using a brow brush. Which isn’t a problem.

Got to say I love it – love how inexpensive it is too. I think it was less than $10? Don’t quite remember but it was affordable. I believe there’s a thinner pencil with the same formula too. I’ll be looking into getting one and seeing what the difference is. Probably easier to draw and shape your eyebrows with. Have you tried this product? What are your opinions and thoughts on it?

[Beauty] — My Updated Pamper Routine

Have my pamper routine changed since I updated last time? It did for a little.

f082

For my daily morning and night time skin care – I’m using Laneige and the Lush eye cream. I make sure to apply every morning and every night – it does make a difference in my skin. So far – no dry patches.

f083

As for face masks and eye masks – I put it in 2-3 a week now if I remember to do so.

f085

Going for facials are bi-weekly – sometimes I slack going but I usually am good with it. As long as I put it on my schedule.

f084

Body and foot massages is biweekly as well – it just helps relaxes my tense body. A must have for the daily!

That’s really my update of my pamper routine. I believe in taking care of myself first before I can take care of others. When you feel good about yourself – you’re in a much happier mood for other things. Don’t you agree? Stay tune for more hauls& reviews – this blog is updated regularly at 12PM Eastern Time.

[Beauty] — Lush Enchanted Eye Cream • Review & Recommended!

f032

IMG: Lush.Com

Have to say I am impressed with this Lush Enchanted eye cream. I wasn’t looking for a specific brand eye cream – just something that will work and take my dryness away from my eyes.

I walked into Lush and asked the sales consultant to recommend me an eye cream for super dry eye lids. I remember paying about $27-$30 for it with tax.

In the beginning of the first few days – my skin flaked like crazy. My first thought was “this is another eye cream that’s not going to work on me.” But I was like – I’ll give it a week or two to see. To my surprise – my skin stops flaking and became very smooth. I’m so glad I never gave up on this cream! It’s been a few months of having smooth skin around my eyes and I am loving it!

Been using this bottle for about four months now. I apply it 2-3 times a day. Usually two times – once in the morning and once at night.

Considering that I paid $27-$30 for it and it lasted for so many months – totally affordable. Not only is that it’s affordable – it’s made from fresh ingredient as well. Totally recommend anyone this eye cream if you have dry eyes like me. I am dry all year round and it looks like I won’t be having dry eyes problem anymore! I’ll be getting another bottle very soon – I think my first bottle will run out soon! Hope you enjoy this review! I love this product!

[Beauty] — Laneige Water Sleeping Mask Review • Worth It?

E0014

Been testing this sleeping mask out for a few months now. Can’t say I love it or hate it. Sometimes it dries out my skin and sometimes it does the job by moisturizing my skin. One thing that’s not on my liking list is that its sticky and when you apply it before you sleep – it just doesn’t feel too good. Just my opinion.

E0015E0016

I would say the price is affordable at $30.00 for a 2.7oz tub of mask. But do I think it works for me? Not really – it works at times and it doesn’t work at times. I would recommend you to get a sample to try it first. For me – I just don’t enjoy the sticky feeling of it. Have you tried this product before? What are your thoughts? Comment below to share!

[Beauty] — The Face Shop Beauty Mask Deals

e267

Purchased these masks at $1 a piece plus tax. That’s right – I usually wait for the 50% off promotion to stock up for the entire year. This time around – I waited till the last day before heading to The Face Shop – so there were little choices left to pick from. I just picked up whatever is left over. I can’t wait till the next sale – for sure will be picking up 30-40 sheet masks. Are you a sheet mask lover? What are you’re to go brands? Comment below to share!

[Beauty] — Nars Lip Liner • Review

e268

Finally getting a chance to review these Nars Lip Liners. I don’t review every makeup product – only products that I like or that had disappointed me.

Got these Nars Lip Liners as a gift at Sephora last November for my birthday. I didn’t start using them till recently. I have to say I love the formula they used – it’s super moist and smooth! Doesn’t dry up my lips at all! I used up the pinkish tone one already and am not a huge fan of the red one.

Usually lip liners are on the dryer side but these are amazing! I am looking forward to purchasing the full size! Have you tried these yet? Love it or hate it? Comment below to share your thoughts!

[Beauty] — Dolly Wink Pencil Eyeliner Review

D24-Eyeliner-Pencil-BLACK-2

IMAGE: GOOGLE.com

I’m in love with this new pencil eyeliner I purchased during my trip to Hong Kong! I didn’t get a chance to take a picture of the packaging but the packaging was girly and pink.

 

I remember this eyeliner pencil was around $40HKD which is $7.27CAD – which is super inexpensive. I wish I got a chance to try it out when I was in Hong Kong – because I know if I love something – I’ll get it stocked up! I just love how smooth it goes on my eyes. It seems like its waterproof and smudge proof too.

 

I’ve heard of Dolly Wink from Youtube gurus before but this is my first time actually owning a product from their brand. Should have got mascara too! There’s always next time. Dolly Wink is a popular Japanese brand if you haven’t heard of it. I can get it at Asian malls here in Toronto but of course with double the price. Have you tried this Dolly Wink brand? What are your thoughts? Comment below to share! Stay tune for more hauls & reviews – this blog is updated regularly at 12PM Eastern Time!

[Collection] — Beauty Masks From Japan, Korea, Hong Kong, and Taiwan

e313

Look at this huge stash I brought back from Hong Kong – yes I was a bit overly crazy with beauty mask shopping! Hong Kong is like mask heaven! I just couldn’t help myself with the many different brands they had plus it was super affordable too! I brought home over 300 masks which I didn’t know of till I got home. I gave some away as souvenirs and kept most of them myself. I think I’m good with beauty masks for the next three years. Good thing most of them expires in 2018 & 2019.

e315

After coming back home with over 300 beauty masks – my girlfriend Cheryl spoils me with more Japanese masks. A girl can never get enough of masks right? Haha I feel so spoiled.

Looks like I won’t be purchasing anymore beauty masks till I finish this stash! Are you a beauty mask user? What is your favorite brand? Comment below to share! Stay tune for more hauls & reviews – this blog is updated regularly at 12PM Eastern Time!!!

[Travels] — Hong Kong Day 2

[Day 2 of our trip] — Second day in Hong Kong — March 14th 2016 

e201

Got to try McDonald pasta for breakfast on our second day and boy did it not taste too good! I ended up ordering a fish-o-filet instead because I just couldn’t stomach it.

e200

Found Snoopy World from walking around the mall. Too bad it was closed!

e202e203

Got my hair washed at the salon for $110HKD – a bit expensive but I enjoyed it! Found Watsons and purchased three items too. I didn’t have enough time to check out the rest of their stuff.

e204e205

Spent the day at Disneyland. It was quite a tiring day because of my jetlag – ended up waking up at 4 in the morning and couldn’t go back to sleep. It was brutal.

e206

Hubbys’ relatives picked us up at 12:30PM. Had lunch at Disneyland and went about our day. Went on a few rides, watched a 3D show, rested in between and then we had Chinese food in a restaurant inside Disneyland. I was exhausted by 7PM! I didn’t know how Id survives for a few more hours but somehow I did and slept in the car going back to hotel. Overall a fun experience – Munchkin loved it and had a blast! It was $500 for adult ticket and not sure about the price for kids. We are so spoiled by Hubbys’ relative that they didn’t let us pay for anything.

e207

I quickly took a shower when I got back from hotel and KO’ed! I was dead asleep before 10PM. Stay tune for our day three of our trip in Hong Kong!
