I have been busy this week, heading out for lunch meetings and attending events. This doesn't sound unfamiliar to all ladies, but when you are in the 'real world,' chances of passing by cosmetics shops are inevitable.
I stopped by Nature Republic (twice!!) and finally got some of their skincare products! Lately, I've been buying makeup, but rest assured, I didn't forget skincare as my main priority. As a result, the SA gave me samples from their new White Therapy skincare range, and premium cleanser oil☆
Nail Polish - Top Coast & Color Deco Nail GR605(a dark jaded color)
PineTree Urban Detox Essence
A shortcoming I noticed on majority of NP products is the lack of English explanation & labels. According to the SA, this detoxifying essence contains natural sea pine extracts, that clarifies your skin. The pinetree extracts, resembles that tea tree smell, is a lightweight serum that sinks into my skin very quickly without leaving any greasy feel. The scent doesn't linger either.
Ringer By Lab Hydro Ampoule
I LOVE THIS STUFF♥♥♥ Ampoules are a form of intensive serum that repairs your skin faster than your other ordinary treatment essence.
This highly-concentrated serum is made with "SOS Linger" prescription(which I have no idea what it is, and Google couldn't provide any useful links) and Blue Lagoon water. This product is formulated for troubled skin to sooth and restore skin with ingredients such as Kawai botanical extracts.
You might wonder what's good about the water from Blue Lagoon, right? Don't worry, it doesn't involve getting stranded on an island with some blonde (lol) It is a large expanse of naturally heated water, which is a mixture of various minerals including silica & sulfur, along with the natural green blue algae. Around this water body there are numerous pots of silica mud, which are a blessing for a healthy skin & treatment of several skin disorders, including eczema & psoriasis.
I got home really late after attending an event. Having applied this intensive serum, I woke up this morning with my blemishes "calm, cool and collected." The redness has evidently subsided and skin feeling supple. Oh, this was the bottle on the shelf when I got it yesterday. Do check first before heading down to the store~.
Eau de Shine soft glossy lipstick OR206 Volume Orange
Although I don't believe in love at first sight when it comes to relationships, but I really felt that way with this lipstick. It's a different feeling, something very alluring about this color that kept calling for me to pick it up (lol) The shade is of a slightly shimmer peach and I can't stop staring at it when I applied it on my lips moments after I made my payment.
However, if you have dry, chappy lips, take caution as this accentuates lines very well, similar with Revlon's Colorburst lippy.
The reading drought has been dragging on far too long and now it's time I make a stand. If you think that you've been overcompensating with your relationships with not just your significant other, but also your friends and family, then check out "Why Men Love Bitches" by Sherry Argov.
Thanks to my mother whom have shared many great movies with me while growing up, this 1973 classic has been one of my go-to whenever I need to relieve stress. I know what you're thinking, why add more to your stress with his scary-as-hell movie (lol)
I was ecstatic when I chanced upon the novel some 15 years. I have lost count the number of times I've read through this book, which evidently shows through the yellowed-pages. One thing about reading novels is that they provide more insights of the characters and the content of the story, as compared to the film version with is time constraints.
Many times I have gone to the website of this bookstore I frequent and they kept saying there's a copy in the physical store. Many times I went in and came out disappointed. Yesterday I tried my luck yet again and even went to the information machine and printed a map which said "The book you're looking for is not available." Truth be told, I was ready to walk out but my sixth sense held me back. Many times I've browsed though the Fiction A-Z section, and I've looked under "B" & "P" but no sign of the book. But yesterday, I was allured to the Horror section and within seconds... "THERE IT IS!!!" V（^o^）V
The giveaway will end on 11th July, 2010. So join before it's too late!
