Using body lotion to keep my body's skin moisturized and in good condition is my everyday habit.

The bottle came with a cap opening. But I like it with a pump instead. Easy and neat.

The body lotion itself has a white creamy texture. But it is lightweight, non oily and non-sticky. It contain a nice light floral smell. 
White creamy texture.
The absorption power is great. My skin is able to absorb quickly. And my skin touches instantly smooth. 

Not only that, after applying it for 7 days. I can feel that those dry areas of the skin like elbow is more moisturized. For me, I slept in air con room everyday. So body lotion is a must for me. This body lotion is great. It is able to keep my skin moisturized throughout the night. I wake up with a smooth and moisturized skin.
Keep my skin smooth and moisturized without the sticky feeling.
One of the benefits of this product is whitening. However, after using for 7 days, I still didn't notice any improvement to my skin in term of whitening. 

But able to keep my skin smooth and moisturized without the sticky feeling is already enough for me continue using it.

Look at the extra essence left over in the pack of mask for you to use.
Me applying the mask.
But seems like my problem skin is slow in absorbing the essence during the 10 mins of application. But as Dr. Jou shared, you need to drink more water in your daily lifestyle in order for your skin to be able to quickly and well absorb any kind of products you apply. Well, seem like I must start to drink more water. :)
Before and After moisture test.
Apart from taking care of our skin, our stomach is taken care of too. Nice little fingers foods from the hotel.

Review: Blackmores Natural Vitamin E Cream + Lanolin

Blackmores Natural Vitamin E Cream + Lanolin (50g)
When you come across the brand Blackmores, the first thing that comes to your mind is supplement pills? Do you know that, Blackmores have moisturizing cream as well?

Come join me in discovering Blackmores Natural Vitamin E Cream + Lanolin.

At first, I am a little skeptical. Because it comes with a thick cream texture, I am afraid it will cause outbreak to my skin. But after using them for almost 2 weeks now, it does helps to maintain my skin moisture. It is especially great to keep my skin moisturize overnight in air-con room.

My Review
Blackmores vitamin E cream!!! Blackmores got skin care products too?? Yes...this is my first reaction when I get hold to this Blackmores Natural Vitamin E Cream + Lanolin. Because I always thought Blackmores only sells supplements. 

So it got me surprise and curious about this skin care product. 

First look at their packaging, it looks more like a toothpaste to me.

The Vitamin E Cream came in a tube. 
Vitamin E Cream came in a 50g tube.
It has a thick cream texture. No fragrance smell too. 
Thick cream texture.
Easy to press tube.
At first, I am a little skeptical. Because it comes with a thick cream texture. Therefore, I use it as my hand and body cream. Works well especially on the dry elbow area.

And I also realize although it is thick, it is not really oily at all. 

Using it as a day moisturizer on my face is still too much for my skin. But I realize it can be used as my moisturizer before bedtime. Especially so when I sleep in air-con room almost everyday. 
Great as a body and hand lotion as well as a night moisturizer.
Having been using it for 2 weeks now, it does help to maintain my skin moisture. I now wake up with my skin still feeling supple, not too oily or too dry.

Where to buy it?
It is retailing for a price of S$19 per tube. Should be able to get it from the Blackmores flagship store in Parkway Parade. Saw it selling at Lazada online store too. 

Where to redeem sample?
No samples at the moment for this product. :(

The drink itself is brown in color and texture is not thick. 
Brown in color. Not thick in texture.
Ok, this is the first time I do not quite like the taste of Kinohimitus drink. Not sure why but it taste very herbal to me. Can't really make do the taste but it is somewhere sweet with a hint of mint. Very funny combination of taste all mix together that do not really blend. 😕

I have by now finished the whole box of stem cell drink. However, sad to say, I did not see any major improvement. Small maintenance maybe. My skin is less oily, in turn reduce blemish grow.
Before and after.
Sad to say, this stem cell drink is not suitable for me as I have tried better stem cell drink. But this does not keep me from trying other Kinohimitsu products. Like I always say, effect varies with individual, maybe it works for you?? You never know until you try them. 😉

Quality Durians From DurianDelivery.com.sg
It's the durian season!!!! Have you been smelling and seeing durians all over the place?? Then you cannot control yourselves but feeling the urge to have some yourselves too?? 😆

Recently, I was introduced to DurianDelivery.com.sg. This is an online durian delivery Store that delivers quality fresh durians right to your doorsteps.

Come join me as I unveil my different durians feasting experience. 

About Durian Delivery
With everything going online, so is durian business. Let me introduce to you an online durian delivery store. 
DurianDelivery.com.sg
DurianDelivery.com.sg is an online startup store, that aims to provide quality fresh durians picked from their durian plantation and delivered straight to your doorsteps within 6 - 12 hours after they are plucked from the trees and within 2 hours of packing

It is great to know that all their durians comes dehusked and packed in a neat air-sealed box. Each pack is 400g and contain a premium water-absorbing condiment pack.

They sell many different varieties of durians. 
  • Royal MSW (Hand-Picked Old Tree MSW Durian) - Signature

  • Red Prawn
  • D101
They take care of every details in the process seriously, from the durian trees, plucking, packing and delivery right up to your door steps. They make sure the durians stays in great fresh quality. 

Go to DurianDelivery.com.sg for more details. 

My Review
To be frank, this is my first time hearing online durian delivery. I always thought the only way to buy durians is to go personally in store. And also delivery is to the durian stores only. Never to the customer's house. 

So I got so curious and excited when I get to know that there is actually a durian delivery online store. 

At the click of my fingers and comfort of my home, I get to enjoy quality fresh durians delivered right to my doorsteps. No queuing, no competing with the heat, no worry how to choose the durians and no cheating issues. 👍

Durians from DurianDelivery.com.sg came in an air sealed container. This is really good as this means freshness is sealed and also no durian smell. This makes it easy to store if we cannot finished and needs to put them in the refrigerator. 
Came in an air-sealed container.
I must mention this. The plastic sealed cover is really easy to peel off. Usually, I will need to cut them in order to remove it. But I don't have to for this. 
Easy to peel off.
And the Royal MSW and MSW durians smell just came flying strongly out of the container once I peel off the cover. Let me tell you, to those that love durians...this strong smell is heavenly...but for those who don't....hide in your room please...hahahaha...
This should be the water absorbing pack.
There are 2 types of durian that I try here. One is the normal MSW and one is DurianDelivery.com.sg signature, Old Tree MSW Durian. 
Mao Shan Wang (also known as Musang King)
Royal MSW (Hand-Picked Old Tree MSW Durian)
Ok....my first question is what is the different?? Let me do the job for you. 😁 Actually it is really easy. 😝

Lets talk about Old Tree MSW first. Durian flesh, the old tree MSW is firmer, brighter and smoother and color looks more yellowish. Taste wise, old tree MSW taste less sweet and more bitter as compare. The taste is also stronger, thicker and more fragrance. 
Royal MSW (Hand-Picked Old Tree MSW Durian)
The normal MSW, durian flesh is less firm and look less smooth. The color looks dull yellow as compare. Taste wise, the normal MSW taste more sweet, less bitter, creamy and very soft. Taste less fragrance and not so thick as compare. 
Normal Mao Shan Wang (MSW)
Well, it is actually very personal when comes to taste. For me, I like my durian less sweet and firmer. So naturally I like the old tree MSW more. But my mum and my blog buddy loves their durian sweeter. So they like the normal MSW more. How about you??😃

Also, look at the seed of the durian....they are so small. That means a decent thick amount of durian flesh!!! And if you are adventurous enough, I saw from a TV show that the seed of the durians can be use to make tonic soup. Yum Yum!!!
Seeds are all very small.
Eating durians means sharing time. I had a durian feast with my blog buddy and my mum. The great quality durians makes our durian feast an enjoyable one. No watery durians or tasteless durians anymore.Every mouthful taste so delicious!

And what if your durian came watery, unripe or sour?? No worries, DurianDelivery.com.sg will get it fully refund or fully replaced for you. This is the service I like best, quality guarantee. 

Oh yah.....durians that I can't finished, the next day, it still taste as great as the day before. Actually cold durian taste as shiok too. I also use it to make dessert too. 
Durians that you can't finished can be made into desserts. (Delicious Durian Ai Yu Jelly)
Taste really delicious! And even the housefly came flying into my house. I remember old folks telling me that housefly will only come when your fruit used less or does not use insecticide. Well...now I get it...as so many time I eat durians, this is the first time housefly came wanting to have a share of my durians.  😂😂😂

Oh.....there is something which I must mention before I end my review here. Do you know that besides the usual health benefits of consuming durians that you have heard of like aid digestion, cure insomnia, prevent cancer and anemia, etc, it does contribute to your skin beauty care too.

Yes, you heard me right. Durians help your anti-aging skin care. It is high in vitamin C which fight free radicals, helping reduce pigmentation and wrinkles. Also, flavonoid in durian can regenerate damaged dead skin and tighten skin, which helps maintain your skin firmness and moisture. 
来....Come eat "Liu Lian" (Durian)
However, the word is still moderate. Eat moderately to enjoy the benefits that durian gave. Durians are delicious but don't over eat yah!! Of course, eat quality, fresh and value for money. I personally feel that DurianDelivery.com.sg fulfills all these factors. 

Where to buy them?
With the great quality and taste of the durians and the convenient you get, price wise is actually consider value for money to me. 

Give them a try!!! I am sure you will love them too. 
Yummy Yum Yum!!!
These great durians can be bought from DurianDelivery.com.sg. Their MSW, Royal MSW and red prawn are on sale at time of this post. Go check it out and feast away!!!
