Cleansing oils and I go way back. I just started high school when Mum decided to introduce me to the world of cleansing oils … starting with the world famous Shu Uemura ones.
Thinking back, I may have been too young (and too lazy) to emulsify the oil properly as I broke out real bad from using it and have since shunned cleansing oils.
Until when I was at uni. A kind housemate taught me the correct method of using cleansing oil and I started (on a very cautious note) with the Kose Softymo's cleansing oil range – think Speedy, Deep Cleansing Oils!
Having tried and loved the range, I was about to give their Seikisho Perfect Cleansing Oil a go but a kind friend decided to pass me two deluxe sized samples to try before I take the plunge and purchase a full-sized bottle!
This is my second bottle and I've nearly used it up! I thought I'd stop procrastinating and quickly get this review up before it appears in an “empties” post!
Miss me? =D
It’s 2014, been too long since I blogged consistently and I am going to do my very best to update this blog more frequently because I still love me a good beauty product and… I haven’t stopped buying those rather wallet-breaking beauties!
Thought I start it off with a little haul post, just warming up here, you see…
Anyway, I headed down south recently – to Singapore with the mother, brother and fiance. A bit of a strange mix but we get along very well! This time around, we did not sightsee as it wasn’t our first time in the country. Instead, we indulged in quite a bit of retail therapy.
Not so much of the others, but I did.
How I yearn to visit my much missed beauty counters such as YSL, Tom Ford, Armani and the high street brands such as Bourjois, Collection, La Roche Posay, Bioderma, Vichy and the like. I was also looking forward to checking out some of the Japanese beauty brands that aren’t available in Malaysia such as Fancl and Orbis.
Well, I’ll stop rambling and let the photos do the talking.
Pardon the photo quality, I’m currently using a new camera and am still trying to get the hang of things! =)
It’s 2014. Many months have passed since I last posted something here. I myself haven’t come by, despite the fact that I have been slowly (but surely) building up a stockpile of stuff “to blog”, so I say.
How have you been?
2013, for me has been a tumultuous year. It’s the year I became a Malaysian taxpayer. The year I decided to cut myself off from “friends” as I was going through a difficult period. I won’t lie and say all’s well but I’m trying my very best to make the most out of everything that comes my way.
Surely with all these downs, silver linings exist, no?
2013 is also the year I got engaged.
I’m still struggling to achieve the work / play balance but things seem a little depressing at the moment, what with my odd working hours and off days.
Thankfully, some very special colleagues at work make coming in a lot more bearable.
I really shouldn’t be moaning about this seeing it IS the New Year, but there are many things I miss.
Tonight, I’m missing the snow-capped roofs in Murten.
Hello, it’s really
been too long. Life’s taken a turn in the complete opposite
direction for me and let’s say… All hell broke lose on my end and
I’ve been spending the last couple of weeks trying to straighten
things, and my life out.
I do love blogging, but when life takes me on a roller
coaster ride, some things just had to go. In this case, I had to
already neglected blog. To my
dear readers, however many I have left, thanks for sticking around
and I hope I will one day be able to share with you what’s been
going on at my end.
For now, I can only say: It’s complicated, but I’ll
work things out! =)
I’m gonna start really small now, and try to blog at
least three times a week.
And I’m gonna kickstart this with a cleansing oil that
has been sitting in my bathroom for quite a while now, say close to
three months? =)
Hi darlings, once again, Sukie has played the disappearing act and disappeared for a while again. =(
Life has been crazy. I don’t even know where to start. Work’s been, well, work. Then when I’m off, family takes over where we went on a short break and I found myself without Internet at all. Which is pretty upsetting seeing I was going to blog there and all.
Anyway, I’m back now, back into my slightly hectic work schedule. Thought I’d drop by and say hello to all of you, and include a random shot of the lip products that have been sitting in my bag:
These Jelly Lip Pens are amazing. Gorgeous things. Thanks to Clinique’s Chubby Sticks, many brands seem to have jumped onto the lip pencil / balm hybrid bandwagon.
Dior’s no exception with their Jelly Lip Pens.
Yay for another Sampling Sundays post! Today, I wanted to share my thoughts on the Dior One Essential Serum.
As you can see in the photo above, I received two samples and have since used them up in a span of approximately three weeks.
The Bird of Paradise Collection. That’s where this little gem came from.
I’m that excited about this product that I just had to review it (real quick) a mere two days after acquiring this. It also helps that I managed to bag this before it launched in the country.
Another month, another batch of empties! Here's what I used up!
Click pen concealers / highlighters!! I love them for their ease of use but loathe them as sometimes the brush can be wonky, and the fact that bacteria tends to settle into the
unwashed bristles puts me off a little!
Then again, nearly every drugstore / pharmacy brand has been producing their very own version of YSL’s Touche Eclat, as I like to call them.
I just had to pick up Bourjois’ Touche Healthy Mix brush concealer. I just had to. At £6.99 (RM35-ish) you can’t quite go wrong with it! After all it did have two of my favourite things in its name: Bourjois (duh) and Healthy Mix (favourite pharmacy brand foundation’s name) so I thought it couldn’t be that bad!
