Bio-essence Tanaka White - For a fairer and more beautiful skin!
Tuesday, July 29, 2014

I am hyperventilating while writing this post because THE SAMPLE STORE has yet again sent me a SUPER DUPER amazing product from one of the biggest brands in Singapore!

Judging from the title, you all would already know that Bio-essence's latest product is one that many of us ladies here yearns for! To be fairer! Although I am already by far a very fair person, my face actually has a lot of dark spots, acne scars and uneven colouring and it is not something you can see from my photos because I put on make up and uses photo editing apps before publicizing them. *not ashamed*

I was sent these 2 items:

Bio-essence Tanaka White 4X Intensive White Serum - $45.80 / 30ml

Bio-essence Tanaka White Double Whitening Day Cream SPF 20 - $29.80 / 50g

What makes this new series so special???

The Bio-essence Tanaka White with 4X (YES, 4X!!!) Intensive White Serum comes with Alpha-Arbutin. Why is Alpha-Arbutin good? It is actually a whitening ingredient that is 9X more powerful the previous Beta-Arbutin!!! (This is typically found in most whitening products in the market)

Who doesn't love improved versions? And what more it is now 9 times better!! What a good deal!

How can this 9x more powerful ingredient actually help? Well, it is specially formulated to better address dark spots and uneven skin tone. (Exactly what I am facing!!!)

It is also super easy to use! Just press the top after you unscrew the cap and voila, you can now apply!

I have never tried a product that is so surreal! The effects actually appears within 4 days but I tried it for a week before posting this up! 

As for the Bio-essence Tanaka White Double Whitening Day Cream, it is an extra boost for my skin! It comes with SPF20! And don't we all just love skincare that comes with SPF? We love our skin that much but we also love the sun sometimes =( So products like these to the rescue!!!

It comes with Tanaka Extract so this ingredient in this product actually shields our skin from external pollutants and also keeps our skin cool and moisturized under the hot weather! I use it as a make-up base and my skin feels super supple even after a long day outside!

Most importantly, both products helps to moisturize and to lighten pigmentation and spots! Say hello to not only FAIR but FLAWLESS skin that glows from within!!!

Let me sidetrack a little...
Do you all know how the name Tanaka originated?

Tanaka (also known as Thanakha) has a rich history in Myanmar. It is a traditional whitening secret adored by females in Myanmar for more than 2000 years. It is used in daily life, as well as in ceremonies where face paintings bear cultural significance of nobility and purity.

The Tree: Tanaka is a perennial tree that grows in the lush forests of central Myanmar. It is slow growing and must be at least 35 years old to be mature enough to yield premium Tanaka. The cultural and practical practice of applying Tanaka on the skin is so deeply rooted in Myanmar that it stood the test of time through thousands of years. It is most widely used to cool and refresh the skin while protecting it from the sun the natural way. 

Tanaka means both "cosmetic for beautifying the face" and "cleansing agent". It is 
recognized as a great aid to help withstand the heat of the sun and is thus an ideal cosmetic for those who have to work under direct sunlight. Women who work outdoor apply thick layers of Tanaka as a sunscreen to prevent sun-burn while its natural cooling properties help them tolerate the intense heat during the day. 

With such a long history way back, how to not trust such a great product???

Just look at me after a week's usage!! Such brighter and moisturized skin!!!

Megrhythm Steam Eye Mask
Friday, July 18, 2014

WORLD CUP 2014 is finally over.

How badly have we tortured our bodies and our skin and our eyes to stay up till the wee hours just to see 20 over men chase after a ball?

Our eyes are the strongest through this whole World Cup saga and I feel so bad for making it so tired! For this whole month I have been juggling work + school + blogging and all this is only possible because my eyes don't give in to fatigue!!


I would love to pamper my pretty eyes now and the perfect product to use now is......... jeng jeng jeng..............

MegRhythm Steam Eye Mask- $6.50 for a pack of 5 pieces of mask!

MegRhythm is a well-known Wellness brand in Japan whereby it offers a range of product to
support the healthy and active lifestyles of city dwellers.
Some of the common city dwellers’ problems includes stiff shoulders, back pain, tired eyes and insomnia.
MegRhythm Steam Eye Mask is a big hit in both Japan and Hong Kong where our city lives are all super tight and busy!!!

This mask is something really extraordinary because it heats up IMMEDIATELY after you open it up. How miraculous is that?

The mask will warm up to 40 degrees the moment you open it up and yes, you think that 40 degrees is crazily hot but no, it's like a super steamy sauna for your eyes! 

Thank you to the lovely Sample Store for sending me these with so many different fragrances! My favorite fragrance is Lavender! 

With this mask, you can have brighter looking eyes everyday! 

They are available in 4 variants and each box contains 5 masks. They can be found exclusively at Guardian and Watsons stores for $6.50 per box.

I know that it can be quite difficult for you to imagine how this mask can actually make your eyes feel less tired and sluggish but the below demonstration will easily tell. Just watch the video and you will be amazed! 

I am actually an insomniac and I always have problems sleeping!! With this mask, I can always still look really bright and cheerful during work and in school everyday!

At first, I was hesitant and I did not believe that a  self-warming steam eye mask can relieve and relaxes our hardworking eyes! I totally love how it is like treating my tired eyes to a steam bath (40℃), soothing them to a comfortable and relaxed state.

Don't worry about whether the mask can stay on your face or not! Like any other facial mask, ear loops allows usage in any position!

AND! 10 minutes is all you need to de-stress and relieves tired eyes

Wednesday, July 09, 2014

Now, I don't want to lose you, 
but I don't want to use you just to have somebody by my side.
And I don't want to hate you, 
I don't want to take you, but I don't want to be the one to cry.
And I don't really matter to anyone anymore.
But like a fool I keep losing my place and 
I keep seeing you walk through that door.

But there's a danger in loving somebody too much,
and it's sad when you know it's your heart you can't trust.
There's a reason why people don't stay where they are.
Baby, sometimes love just ain't enough.

Now, I could never change you,
I don't want to blame you.
Baby, you don't have to take the fall.
Yes, I may have hurt you, but I did not desert you.
Maybe I just want to have it all.
It makes a sound like thunder, it makes me feel like rain.
And like a fool who will never see the truth, 
I keep thinking something's gonna change.

But there's a danger in loving somebody to much,
and it's bad when you know it's your heart they can't trust.
There's a reason why people don't stay who they are.
Baby, sometimes love just ain't enough.

And there's no way home when it's late at night and you're all alone.
Are there things that you wanted to say?
And do you feel me beside you in your bed, 
there beside you where I used to be?

But there's a danger in loving somebody to much,
and it's bad when you know it's your heart you can't trust.
There's a reason why people don't stay where they are.
Baby, sometimes love just ain't enough.

Majolica Majorca Lash King and Perfect Automatic Liner!

Hi guys! Sorry for the disappearance and I know that you know that a lot has been going on in my life and I am finally back to do a product review on the most awesome eye make up EVER!!!!! 

Lovely people from SAMPLE STORE has sent me loads of products to review and I still have many parcels awaiting for me to try them on! Super excited, grateful and blessed to be one of them!

Majolica Majorca Lash King $25.90

This mascara is seriously AMAZING. I have had used SO MANY mascaras in my life and I dare say that this is really awesome. 


- It blends the eyelashes really quickly and easily.
- It does not clump up after applying and this is one thing that a lot of mascaras CANNOT achieve. 
- It is smudge-proof because I always subconsciously rubs my eye during the day and it did not for once came off.
-BUT... It is easily removable with make-up remover! I used to blacken my whole eye area after removing my make up so this product really is wonderful and it does not harm my eyes at all! 

I am not a fan of fake eye-lashes(actually I am a noob when it comes to putting them on lah) so I really need mascaras to enhance and brighten up my eyes for work, a date or just some fun!

This is me before trying out both the products. I look cheerful but my eyes looks tired and there is no sparkle at all!

This mascara contains 5mm super long fibers so it not only allows you to achieve maximum length, but also maximum volume and fullness with just a single coat. This waterproof formula is also very resistant to sweat, sebum and tears.
It is also formulated with creamy wax and an increased amount of volume-increasing powder for superb lash adhesion and a clump-free and smooth finishing touch

What I really adore is that it contains gentle treatment ingredients for your lashes - Macadamia Nuts Oil, Vitamin E Derivative!!

The acrobat catch brush coats the lashes evenly and ensures excellent lash catching and separation effect.

PRETTY LASHES ARE SOOOO easily achievable now! 

Majolica Majorca Perfect Automatic Liner $22.90

Have you all ever used such a pretty eyeliner before? I have always been using boring black and brown eyeliners and sometimes it really gets a bit un-interesting.

Fret not, now you can have PINK eyeliner!!! 

The water-based dial-type eye liner allows you to easily draw fine, delicate lines or thick, bold lines with its felt pen bristles. Entice with a shimmering pearl color on your eye line!
It is formulated with super fix polymer to give clear and long-lasting eye lines, which is very resistant to perspiration, skin oils and tears.

Achieve dewy eyes by drawing on the lower lid or a shimmery effect by drawing on the upper lid. 

Let your eyes shimmer when you give someone a wink! 

With these 2 lovely eye make-up, I don't think anyone can resist looking into your eyes!!

So, what are you waiting for? I have used both products and spent almost 9 hours outdoors but there was no need for me to touch up at all! It lasts THAT long, I swear.
