MISSHA Super Aqua Oxygen Mask

This RAPID PURIFYING AND CLARIFYING mask purifies tired skin caused by stress and oxygen free radical and removes trapped debris & dead skin cells from deep pores. It contains natural fruit essential oil extracted orange and lime with vitamin C derivatives to make skin bright and clear.

Instructions:
Take an appropriate amount and gently spread onto cleansed face, avoiding the eye and mouth area. Leave it on for about 5-10 mins, and feel the micro massage effect of oxygen bubbles. Wash the mask off with lukewarm water.

Addiition Special Instructions:
It should be noted that rubbing is not recommended as it decreases the micro massage effect. It is a natural phase of oxygen detoxifying which explains why you will feel the tingle and minor irritation if you have small cuts in your skin.

My Verdict:
I like the whipped marshmallow texture and the instant brightening & whitening results makes my skin look more even and purified. The effects last around 2 days so I use this twice a week to maintain that glow, but whenever I need to head out for a fun night out, this mask works as a quick boost for a radiant and even complexion.

Rating: 4.5/5

ETUDE HOUSE O2 White Mask
Revitalizing mask pack promotes clear and bright complexion, balances and corrects skin tone. It contains oxygenated water & O2 carrier complex for skin revitalization and formulated with skin soothing ingredients.

Instructions:
Leave the mask on for 2-3 minutes and then rinse off.

My Verdict:
The consistency is that of a starchy paste which I don't like, however slathering it on my face is relatively easy. The whitening result only last for a short while, and its less obvious than Missha's. But it does a decent job of hydrating my skin.

Rating: 2.5/5

I bought both around the same time and have been using for them for 3-4 months now. Even though my skin complexion is fair, you can see how both masksfurther 'whiten' my arm (lol) And I snapped it without using flash!

My upcoming review will be featuring sleeping masks. Stay tuned~♪

My Baby, Milo

PREVAGE Day Ultra Protection Anti-aging Moisturizer
This SPF 30 PA++ day cream works perfectly well on my combination skin! I absolutely do not need to blot my face at all even after 6 hours. It doesn't take too long to absorb into my skin and the cream does not leave a sticky feel too. After using for a week, my skin is smoother and reduce the appearance of lines that are slowly starting to show on my face. Even better, my skin tone has been evened out, which brings me to my favourite product by Elizabeth Arden.

But before we do, I have to say that this moisturizer disagrees with my Laneige Primer. It keeps flaking but it goes well with my other primer...

White Glove Skincare - Fortifying Capsules
This treatment, containing a pure form of Vitamin C, feels very velvety and absorbed into my skin with ease. However it leaves a residue on my hands like touching flour with wet hands, a white patch appears when it dries up.

Along the right side of my face once had this brown patch, sure it wasn't noticeable but it really irks me alot! No amount of exfoliation could remove it but I believe PREVAGE Day Moisturizer helped in improving my complexion and the fortifying capsules further accelerated the treatment, making my face look brighter with a very healthy, natural glow.

Prevage Anti-aging Night Cream

This is more of a thick lotion than a cream, it takes a longer time to absorb into my skin, but still doesn't leave my hands sticky. Formulated like the Day moisturizer but more concentrated.

Prevage's night cream uses encapsulated and time-released Idebenone to fight the free radicals which cause skin to appear older, looser andless lustrous.  Like I had mentioned earlier, Idebenone has been found to be a very potent antioxidant.

Further more, it also contains Mega Complex-A which is a blend of vitamins including a Vitamin A derivative, in short, is the only topical ingredient proven conclusively to reverse signs of aging, Lemon Peel Extract that helps with pigmentation issues and Vitamin E. Take Note that both Vitamin A & E are also antioxidant.

I have used other brightening treatment products, but none have produced results that are as obvious. Believe in the Elizabeth Arden slogan "Proof...not promises."

PS
I've always find the night cream to be extremely thick and takes a long time to sink into my skin. So lI mixed in a bit of pearl powder and it seemed to absorb the excess oiliness from my face!

Look how bashful Milo is~

He's starting to recognize certain keywords, and the result could keep you awake at night. For instance, when I wave & say "Bye~" - he would whine (lol)

He likes to sit on my lap while chewing on his toys, and even fell asleep without caring about my numb legs...
Nowadays he would lie on his back and have us tickle him too☆



Doesn't he look like Yogi Bear?

PS I need Carmex lip balm!!!

瞧瞧Milo有多么害羞~

它已经开始认别一些词汇,得来的结果可能会令你无法入眠.
例如: 当我向它挥手说"拜拜"的时候,它竟然会闹别扭耶 (笑)

它也很喜欢坐在我的腿上咬着心爱的玩具,甚至会睡着...简直不顾我的发麻的脚嘛!
这阵子它也会躺着要瘙痒☆

Milo wanted to let out of his enclosure at midnight and I refused to budge.
So he had no choice but to go to sleep, but not before he did some play time. (ーДー;)ヾ
已经是凌晨12点钟,Milo还想出来玩但我又不给.
它只好乖乖去睡,但还是玩一下下才肯去见周公



He's been very horny lately, and humps on Foxy with every moment he gets!

It does a nice job of making my skin look and feel smoother with minimal irritation. There's some notable flushing of the skin which indicates increased blood flow, with a slight tingling sensation.

I'm also using the toner from the Pore Refining rage containing Alpha and Beta Hydroxy Formula.
The former sweeps away dead skin cells and smooths over rough, uneven patches, while the latter penetrates deep into pores to visibly reduce their appearance for clearer-looking skin.

Some warning, the microbeads might be alittle harsh so if you have bad acne and don't wish to irritate your skin further, try Burt's Bees Pore-Refining Mask.

I headed down to the Elizabeth Arden head office today to meet the friendly PR, Liz. It was supposed to be a short 30min introduction to their launch of the Prevage Anti-Aging Moisturizer, but our chat over-ran for an hour (lol)

PREVAGE Day Ultra Protection Anti-aging Moisturizer SPF 30 PA++
With a broad spectrum SPF protect, this product aim at moisturizing and improving the appearance of dry skin, evening out your skin tone to create a brighter, more radiant look.

Idebenon: The power of PREVAGE®
PREVAGE® Day includes the revolutionary Idebenone, a clinically proven antioxidant that addresses the affects of oxidation on the skin, which is a leading cause of visible signs of aging. PREVAGE® Day also contians Thiotaine, another antioxidant that complements Idebenone in protecting the skin from free radical damage caused by environmental assaults.

So be sure to check out the launch of PREVAGE® Day at the local EA counters this coming Friday!

I was given a 7-day trial of both Day and Night cream; the full-sized products will given later due to a delay in shipment. On top of that, Liz was kind enough to give me Fortifying Capsules from the White Glove range! σ(^。^;

This White Glove skincare range is specially created for Asian women.

Each capsule contains a pure form of Vitamin C:

- Encapsulation technology offers time-released brightening benefits
- Minimizes the look of freckles, dark spots & discoloration
- Promotes skin a radiant, even-toned, translucent complexion
- Sustains natural collagen levels for a smoother, firmer skin
- Vitamin C content helps repair skin to reduce appearance of fine lines & wrinkles
- Suitable for even sensitive skin


PS
My skin condition has gone berserk with the arrival of Milo. Bacteria, his poo & pee have been drivin' me nuts! Nowadays I put on my Japanese Kimono silk robe (nothing else underneath besides lingerie) to bed to avoid sleeping with his smell & germs...
