Laneige Multiberry Yogurt Peeling Gel & Repair Pack

WHAT IS IT: Laneige Multiberry Yogurt Peeling Gel & Repair Pack


Laneige Multiberry Yogurt Peeling Gel: Hypo-allergenic peeling gel gently polishes skin for a smooth complexion with mannan and strengthen the skin barrier with the fermented yogurt.

Laneige Multiberry Yogurt Repair Pack: High-concentration multiberry extract yogurt pack that nourishes skin from deep inside and leaves skin supple

VERDICT: Before I start with this review, I have to admit something rather silly that I have done. Due to my short-sightedness, I thought these 2 sample packs are the same and so, proceeded to to transfer both sample satchets to 1 plastic container. It was only when both sample satchets were squeezed out did I realized that they are not the same, no doubt because of the color. So, this product review will be done as a single product instead. And hope I get this right. But for the sake of my readers, I would really recommend reading instruction manuals, booklets and the likes to ensure different products are used separately instead of being used together as 1 product. Silly me...

Product Benefits for Laneige Multiberry Yogurt Peeling Gel


Product benefits for Laneige Multiberry Yogurt Repair Pack


First off, both sample smelled of fresh and sweet berries (Multiberry Yogurt). Since both sample satchets have been combined to make into 1 product, let's just say I used it in the shower for further exfoliation. Laneige Multiberry Yogurt Peeling Gel actually comes with Konjac beads which gently exfoliate dead skin cells and impurities, thus giving a smooth complexion. The process of exfoliating is really gentle. And despite the acne that has already started to scab over on my chin, it didn't really hurt at all.

And also, as for the Laneige Multiberry Yogurt Repair Pack, we are supposed to use this after the Laneige Multiberry Yogurt Peeling Gel and both products have to be washed off after massaging and/or leaving it on your face for 5 - 10 minutes. I figured that's the exact part of the instructions that confused me into transferring both sample satchets into 1 container for re-use.

After using it for a few days, I didn't experience nor see any bad after-effects at all. For the brightening benefit(s), I didn't really see it probably because my complexion gravitates towards ghostly pale most times, so I cannot really comment and review much about brightening effects at all. And unlike most peeling mask(s) out in the market, this one didn't harden on my face at all.

The plus side? My skin felt smoother and hydrated after use each time and the wonderful scent of yogurt lingers on for a while


WHAT I THINK: No oily sensation!

WHERE TO REDEEM A SAMPLE: I redeemed these 2 sample satchets via CozyCot's Questing and Coin Rewarding programme on the website. But sadly, this programme was removed a few weeks after I redeemed my samples, although my email to CozyCot was re-assured with the message that they are constantly trying to update it and make it better. So, we just have to wait for it to come back if you want to give the samples a try.

However, I believe that you could pop by any Laneige outlets in Singapore and ask for a free trial on the spot to gauge the initial effects and benefits of it.

Nature Slim Green Review

[ As mentioned in one of my previous blog post, I requested for samples of Nature Slim Green and here's the review for it. ]

WHAT IS IT: Nature Slim Green


Nature Slim Green: A detox formula that removes wastes from your body, nourishes the digestive tract and promotes bowel regularity in order to support a healthy slimming regime. To be dissolved in water, this drink absorbs excess toxins from your food intake (especially from meat), cleanses the intestinal walls and colon to attain general detoxification, reduces risk of digestive disorders, promotes metabolism and minimizes development of constipation problems.

So, I mixed it with hot water as per the instructions stated..

VERDICT: First, the scent of peach is there, since I was give samples with peach flavor even though the powder looks close to being green tea powder. But as soon as the hot water is added in and everything is mixed thoroughly, that's where this product is wrong in so many ways.

As you can see in the image above, it looks as if I just stomped over to a nearby swampy area with my mug and scooped out a mug-ful of swamp water. The taste is even worse than I imagined it to be, sure the scent of peach is still there. But it tastes as horrible as it looks, for sure!

The taste is simply horrifying that I am absolutely sure there's better slimming drinks out in the market than this Nature Slim Green version. What's more, the powder itself is rather difficult to dissolve thoroughly despite mixing with hot water and this version of "detox" is actually "constipation". Couldn't sleep the entire night as the stomach pain kept me awake despite the packaging promising that "minimizes development of constipation problems". Entire cup of Nature Slim Green looks unappealing.

Don't get me wrong though! I've bought powdered match green tea at Medi-Ya (at Liang Court) before, and there is a huge difference between the Medi-Ya version and this one. For sure, the scent and taste do not match at all. I guess the scent is there to probably try to trick you into thinking that it's nice to drink, but in fact, it isn't!

What's worse? The retail price for this product is a whopping S$142 for 30 sachets only. Seriously? S$142 for something that don't measure up to what the packaging claimed? And for a miserable 30 satchets? The company who came up with this god awful product must be a group of people with absolutely zero taste buds. Even the Mate Tea I am drinking now is so much more better!

Just thinking of this Nature Slim Green is already giving me stomachache and nausea without even having to drink it. And needless to say, I only took 2-3 sips of it before pouring the entire mug away. Same goes for the remaining sample satchet I have, just yucky to even remotely think about it being in existence anywhere in my house.


WHAT I THINK: I feel like a nauseous mother without being pregnant!

WHERE TO REDEEM A SAMPLE: If you think this product will work for you, which I highly doubt, you can go over to The Sample Store Singapore to request for sample redemption. Just don't say I didn't warn you!

TBS Vitamin C Facial Cleansing Polish Review

WHAT IS IT: TBS Vitamin C Facial Cleansing Polish


TBS Vitamin C Facial Cleansing Polish: This daily radiance-revealing facial wash cleanses and exfoliates skin in one step. Micro beads gently buff away dull skin cells, leaves skin feeling fresh and smooth and enhances skin’s natural radiance.

Squeezed out a generous glob and lather up for reviewing.

VERDICT: First, the scent of oranges is strong in this one. It feels almost as if I'm actually washing my face with real oranges. *sniffs* This wonderful scent is like a perfect wake-me-up in the morning when you use it. The difference for this cleansing polish (or wash, if you prefer calling it) doesn't lather up too much. Sometimes, too much foam and lather may not be good for your skin as it may end up clogging your pores. So, I'm definitely glad of the fact that this Vitamin C Facial Cleansing Polish doesn't lather too much than I expected it to.

Also, although my skin is towards the oily/combination type, but if I stay under the sun too long, my face will start getting red and irritated to the point of feeling sunburnt. But luckily, this cleanser doesn't "hurt" when I tried washing my face after a bout of sunshine too long. Maybe because my face is more of the oily variety, I don't feel it drys out my skin too much as well.

And, it definitely made my skin looks brighter after a few uses. Previously, I was using Tea Tree Skin Clearing Foaming Cleanser but then it didn't prevent more acne outbreaks. In fact, it kinda suddenly stopped working for me and I'm not sure why? If you've read some of my previous reviews regarding facial cleansers or happened to see my FB status updates, I've been griping about how the pesky little acne spot on my chin refused to ripen nor go away.

So, I switched to this Vitamin C Facial Cleansing Polish after finishing my Tea Tree Skin Clearing Foaming Cleanser, hoping to see a miracle of some sort. Well, that pesky little acne spot finally decided to "ripen" and ripen it did. At least I'm glad to know that there's no more facial "pain" when I accidentally brush against that undecided acne on my chin. Right now, that acne spot on my chin is close to getting better.

Although it's not as if the acne scar will completely disappear, but I'm definitely glad of the fact that it has finally gone past the stage where it cannot decide whether to ripen or stay dormant for another 1 month or so. Oh, and also, Vitamin C Facial Cleansing Polish has little orange beads inside, almost similar to the "jojoba beads" that is present in other types of facial cleanser. But the downside of it is that, it doesn't really exfoliate too well since the "beads" seemed way too small and tiny to do much exfoliating and is rather gentle on the skin, not abrasive at all!

Like what the packaging on the tube says, it's a Cleansing Polish, not an Cleansing Exfoliator. So, do not expect your dead skin cells to miraculously washed off after a few washes. However, it is definitely gently enough to use on a daily basis. As expected of a Vitamin C Facial Cleansing Polish, do massage it longer than usual, not massaged harder, to ensure that your face does look brighter, pores feels clean and unclogged

But the good part on the other hand? My blackheads seemed lesser with each use, since I just massaged longer (instead of scrubbing harder which will ultimately harm your skiin than do any good), especially the T-zone areas on my face. You may think that those of us with oily face should just stick to Tea Tree facial products, but I would also like to stress that it isn't necessarily so. Previously, most of the Tea Tree products from The Body Shop works for me, except for the Tea Tree Oil which gave me an unexpected breakout on my chin area that refuses to go away for a long time. So, this Vitamin C Facial Cleansing Polish is almost like a godsend to me when I'm trying to "inject" some vitamins into my daily facial washing routine.

Although honestly, I would really like it if the microbeads within this Vitamin C Facial Cleansing Polish is able to exfoliate my dead skin cells on a daily usage. Instead of having to massage it on my face longer than usual to get rid of any signs of dead skin cells and blackheads.


WHAT I THINK: An Orange a day keeps stroke away, maybe?

WHERE TO REDEEM A SAMPLE: There's no sample satchet for this product, however, I believe that there's a sample tube at all The Body Shop outlets for you to try on the spot. But then, as with all facial products, you need to use it long term in order to see the results promised on the package. Short term wise, you will just see only a wee bit of result(s) promised.

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

So, I got a phone call from a woman from GlamaBox asking if there'll be anyone home to receive the box that will be sent in the late afternoon/early evening timeslot. But the box came close to 9pm and I skipped dinner to wait for the box's arrival D:

And when the box finally came, I can't wait to open it up and take a look at what's inside!!

So, there's a glamagem advertisement card and a glamabox card detailing what's inside the box.

Of glamagem:, a collection of designer jewelry curated and designed by celebrity model and co-founder QiQi and Lisa S. Glamagem products are exclusively available online at

Glamagem customers will be able to purchase one off products from the Glamagem boutique or pay a monthly membership fee of $688 HKD for Celebrity Limited Edition products within the collection. Membership benefits include exclusive member discounts, early access to limited edition products and personalized selections each month matched to their individual style. The Glamagem collection will include a wide range of prices from $100 HKD to $688 HKD for unique designer fashion jewelry.

Of GlamaBox:
Front of the card is a message to subscribers of GlamaBox and on the back, is a detailed list of what will be getting in the current edition of our GlamaBox. It even comes with a information on the product sample given, what the product is for, what it helps to achieve when applied. And not forgetting, the retail price for the actual item and the nett weight for the retail size item. And as I mentioned on my previous post on another Beauty Box, I thoroughly appreciate the fact that there are Beauty Boxes companies that actually includes little information like this to help us ladies decide better on our budget. Intsead of going down to the shops, taking a look at the price and then having to re-budget on the spot. Too troublesome!

It comes paper-wrapped in a quality paper, complete with a sticker lol

Since the GlamaBox sticker wasn't that adhesive, I would like to report that no harm came to the pretty paper.

For a low cost of SGD18 per month, subscribers get up to 5 beauty goodies in their boxes. Some indie brands I may not have heard of and also products that are catered to my skin type as well. Good!

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Black Head Off Stick (B&C Laboratories Inc.) Review

[ Before I go carry on this review, I would like to state that this product was bought almost more than 8 years ago on one of my beauty/facial whims when Watsons started stocking up on beauty products brought in from Japan. But sadly, I no longer see this product anymore at Watsons ever again. So, you may want to try online stores if you feel this product may work for you]

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

WHAT IS IT: Black Head Off Stick


Black Head Off Stick: Contains various amount of moisturizing and nourishing ingredients combined! Through lightly rubbing your nose, it cleans off the tip and sides of your nose! Even if your partner has their head any closer to yours, you won't have to be embarrassed about those dark and dirty black head. Be a clean and absolute beauty!

It looks seemingly close to a lip balm, matte foundation stick and even better, Maybelline's Clear Smooth BB stick. But it's not!

Lightly rub your nose and it cleans off the tip and sides of your nose! As seen in this image, those are not my dead skin cells, but rather from the Stick.

VERDICT: As stated, it's a beauty whim purchase. And as per stated on the packaging, you need to rub it on your nose to get rid of blackheads.

Image Source:


Wash your face clean from oil, and then rub your nose with "Black Head Off Stick". You will see tiny crumbs floating off your nose, use tissue or clean cloth to rub clean and you're done. Use toner on your face for extra care and protection (If you feel a burning sensation from the rubbing, this is a normal symptom).

First, I would like to inform my readers that this product doesn't effectively and really gets rid of your blackheads. I bought it because I am just darn sick of trying to remove my blackheads manually via suqeezing, nose pore strips. And I thought this was a godsend product. What this product does is to actually just "rub off" the head of your blackheads. You will still have to get rid of your blackheads manually, out of your pores the hard way.

The good part?

After using this on my nose for my blackheads, I did noticed that "surface" blackheads doesn't look that obvious from a short distance, almost close to non-existence blackheads on my nose. And it actually rubbed away some dead skin cells on the surface of my skin near my nose area. And what's more, it actually mattifies my nose so it doesn't look sebum-shiny too.

This one's a 50% hit and miss in 1 package, to be honest. For the 50% miss, it touts to clean blackheads, but it only does so if you rubbed long enough on your nose. It removes the "surface" blackheads (blackheads are black on the top as seen from your nose, those are the "surface" heads) so your blackheads won't look so obvious. And as for the 50% hit, it rubs off dead skin in the process while mattifying your nose.

In short, you will still have to be "hardworking" and wash your face, especially blackhead prone area with more gusto by washing longer, or still continue using pore strips. However, if your nose tends to produce more sebum than most ladies, then it may be worthwhile to just get it to mattify your nose instead.


WHAT I THINK: A haphazard plan of action when thinking of this product!

WHERE TO REDEEM A SAMPLE: As usual, this product doesn't have sampling when it was first brought to Singapore. But what I can assure you is that, most Black Head Off Stick's out on the market doesn't really gets rid of your blackheads literally. If you feel that this one may not even work or as effective as the packaging touted, then it's more than alright not to buy.

And since it's in a lip balm-esque container, kinda hard to "share" it at all. Just give this a miss if you ever see it sold in Singapore again, if you are someone who prefer to wash your nose clean the usual method.

Wakilala Clear Wash & Clear Essence Review

[ I'm not sure if these 2 products can be still found in Singapore anymore, but I'm still going to review them, in case they are brought back to Singapore once more. However, you can try looking in SaSa outlets if you want to buy *shakes fists & blames Musee Platinum Tokyo* ]

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Before I go into details of the reviews, allow me to share my underarm experience with you, my beautiful readers, although I assure you that the underarm is not mine in this case. This happened during the days when I was still working in a cafe (And damn! I make the best coffee among my colleagues *smirk*).

When I was still a student, I do not believe in underarm products. I mean, at the end of the day, just go shower and scrub thoroughly all over. And bingo! Sweat is gone, just like that. And fast forward a few years later when I started working in a cafe.

One fine day during a middle of a crowd-fest due to it being a weekend, after I "bullied" a co-worker in doing the cashier counter while I took over the barista machine. These 2 girls came up to the counter admist a long queue that never seems to end. I'll just graciously skip their races, but the thin one, let's call her Miss. T (T for Thin) while the chubby one, we shall call her Miss. C (C for Chubby).

Miss. T was wearing a regular T-Shirt with short sleeves, so, no big deal. But Miss. C was not only chubby, but also happened to be wearing a sleeve-less tight T-shirt that showed off all her flabs way too much. (I have no offence towards people who likes to dress to show off their flabs or whatsoever, it's their choice, not mine!)

While my cashier counter-colleague was attending to her and oblivious to the surroundings, Miss. C decided to "secretly" scratch her left armpit (which unfortunately is the direction where I'm hovering at my barista machine). And god forbid! Her armpit were so dark with sweat stains. And right after scratching the itch in her armpit, Miss. C decided to sniff the same fingers that she used to scratch that armpit of hers. Gross, right?

And she actually pretended that none of that happened at all. She just looked around casually, just to make sure no one saw her do that. Until she caught my eye. No doubt, my face was rather scrunched up from that unsightly episode, but my facial expression kinda told her that I did witness that horrifying episode.

Needless to say, that same day after I knocked off from work, my first decision is to walk into Watsons and hunt around for some underarm products to ensure I do not have sweat-stained armpits. Ever!

And back to the review at hand~

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

WHAT IS IT: Wakilala Clear Wash


Wakilala Clear Wash: Bison Wakilala Clear Wash is an exfoliating and whitening product specially formulated for use on underarms. Product disinfects, whitens and removes underarms dark patches and marks. User experiences a cooling, refreshing sensation after application.

VERDICT: Personally, I used an old toothbrush that I kept separately from my actual toothbrush used for my teeth. Since the product insists that it be used before showering a.k.a before you wet yourself anywhere, especially the armpits area. So, I squeezed out a generous amount onto my old toothbrush and proceeded to brush my underarms for a good 1-3 minutes.

Although the packaging stated to "scrub and massage till foam turns into a dark compound", luckily for me, mine didn't. Can see how much I scrub it everday, huh? My advice is not to scrub too hard, just enough to scrub/massage for 1-3 minutes without feeling like the skin on your armpit is going to drop off. Whether the foam turns dark or not, it doesn't matter, as long as 1-3 minutes is up, just stop!

Then, carry on with your showering activities as usual. After I'm done with my usual shower routine, I did noticed that my armpit did lighten a little after a week's usage. It also helps if you do "take care" of your armpits on a daily basis in the shower though. Underarm stench is definitely gone.

It's not like the stench goes off forever and never comes back. It still does. But at least there's Wakilala Clear Wash that actually gets rid of the stench for a certain amount of time that lets you feel like a normal human being without stinky underarms.


WHAT I THINK: No stinky smell!

WHERE TO REDEEM A SAMPLE: I do not think there is samples for this item. But, if you are still curious and want to try, you could share it with your siblings, by transferring maybe half of the contents into another re-usable plastic container if you're somewhat against sharing products meant for underarms due to bacteria reasons.

WHAT IS IT:Wakilala Clear Essence

Wakilala Clear Essence: Bison Wakilala Clear Essence is a daily fast whitening and toning product for use on underarms. Product tightens pores & removes grime on underarms. Cooling sensation after application provides a refreshing effect. Help to reduce sweat & prevent smell from underarms.

VERDICT: This is to be used after you have scrubbed your underarms with Wakilala Clear Wash. And seriously, like what the packaging has mentioned, there is this cool and tingling sensation when applied. (Please, do not use it on an un-scrubbed underarm as you will be wasting precious money.) That tingling sensation, of course, won't last 24 hours. But it's enough to make you feel as if you had clean, stink-free underarms from birth.

TIP: If your underarm starts to stink once more, skip the Essence. Go back to scrubbing with the Clear Wash. Never, ever use the Essence alone. You will feel that cool tingling sensation. But the effect won't last if your underarm isn't clean in the first place!


WHAT I THINK: Squeeeee~~~

WHERE TO REDEEM A SAMPLE: Same as the Clear Wash, there isn't samples for this. Share with a family member, by transferring half the contest to your own re-usable bottle for prolonged use as well.
