these cost only $3.90 & are chip-resistant and are of a fast-drying formula! besides the pink that’s sheerer, the rest are opaque after 2 colour coats and apply very smoothly! i’m ready to buy more of Etude House launches more pastel nail colour series!
i got this tangle teezer from a fellow twitter/instagram follower who placed an ad on her instagram^^ am so glad that i bought it because it combs through my hair effortlessly in the morning when i wake up with knotty and fizzy hair! it NEVER tugs on my bleached hair ends which are much drier and prone to frizz. absolutely loving every aspect of it!
highly raved throughout Taiwan & Japan! here’s where i usually get them from:
every packet comes with a 7g scoop = 15 days portion per pack, so one month = 2 packs, around $96 -100 depending on the merchant that you buy from. i’ve been on this for about 2 weeks and have seen positive effects in terms of the elasticity of my skin and the overall smoothness. i read that it’ll roughly take about 3 months before the true results can be observed and felt. so we’ll see :) so far, i’m loving it! check out the links to find out more about this awesome collagen powder!
i’ve been breaking out lately, so i was on the hunt to get a tea tree essential oil to help heal my irritated skin. i stumbled upon this at guardian and was happy to see that it’s got 25% tea tree oil, grapeseed oil, vitamin A (from carrot) and vitamin E. all natural ingredients, no silicones, no fragrance, no colouring, no preservatives….just plain old essential oil goodness in a bottle. i mix 1 drop in a little tiny blot of aloe vera gel and spread it on my face. for my back acne, it’s 5 drops to one blot of aloe gel. it doesn’t heal major breakouts as fast as chemical acne-fighting products, but it sure helps the skin in the reduction of redness, swelling and when the pimple pops, the skin heals back without much visible scarring. i noticed that natural ingredients still do work best on sensitive acne-prone skin. the wait to recovery of an infected site may take ages, but in the long run, the absence of lots of chemicals will benefit the overall skin health :)
my favourite eye makeup remover! it removes all my super tough waterproof mascara in 2 swipes! doesn’t sting my eyes or make my eyes blurry when used to remove the eye makeup :)
this product has a thicker, less viscous consistency than your regular alcohol-based toners as it’s packed with lots of hydrating ingredients! the rose scent is really calming! the formula feels very comfortable on the skin and is absorbed really quickly too! great for our humid weather conditions!
i have been focusing on getting my skincare routine right these days, drinking lots of water, running and doing Pilates (check out Blogilates on youtube! i’ll blog more about her soon!) too! i’ve changed up my diet a lot too, and have been eating as “clean” as possible. no trans fat, less sugar, less salt, no processed food…..only wholesome foods and occasional comfort food to indulge in to reward myself :) oh yes, i’m using MyFitnessPal App on my iphone to track all my calorie intake! very good app to use!
stay beautiful & remember that true happiness starts from the inside! :D so smile & get started on living and eating well!
have a great week!
