My Review
Dark eye circles and uneven skin tone is my long term problems. Even so since I always have scars left by my blemish and also late night sleeps.

This dark spot corrector has a light flowery smell during application. Its non sticky and non oily.

When apply, my skin feels cool and its fast absorbed by my skin with no trace of the glitters on the skin.

I use it on my post-acne scars and after a week of using, it did start to lighten my post-acne scars a little. Well its no magic, I will need to continue using it for more visible results. :) But I am happy with the results since it really did work.

The metal applicator does feels cooling when comes into contact with my under eye skin area. And to note, no smell for this product. :)

A little goes a long way, only a little eye treatment is needed for each eye area. So I actually did not press a lot when applying. :) And I also use my finger tip to tap on the eye area for better absorption. 

My under eye skin is able to fast absorb the eye treatment. After used during the day, it feels smooth and looks brighten up.

Also it makes my makeup process on my eye area much more smoother.

My Review
I have redeemed this makeup remover sample when it just launch. 

The current makeup remover I use is from Biore too. Their Aqua Jelly Makeup Remover. So when they launch this new Biore Micellar Cleansing Water, I am really curious how is it better.
 
Biore Micellar Cleansing Water really feels like water or toner. It is colorless and there is no smell to it.
Colorless and no smell.
It is also not oily and sticky at all. Makes me feel at ease not to have blemish after used. :)

Before I try it on my face, Lets look at the test on makeups on my hand first. 

From left to right:
Nuxe BB Cream,Covermark Moisture Veil LX, The Body Shop Lily Cole Puff On Radiance, The Body Shop eye brown pencil, Loreal Color Riche Lipstick, Jill Lowe eye liner, Silkygirl blusher, Silkygirl eye shadow, Silkygirl Big Eye waterproof mascara. 
Testing the makeup remover.
Place some Biore Micellar Cleansing Water on a cotton pad. 
Soak the cotton pad with the makeup remover.
What I do is I first just wipe the cotton pad across the makeups. 

What happened? Well It cleanly wipe off all the makeup except the mascara. Wow!!! Impressive!
All makeup removed except mascara.
Only Mascara leftover after first wipe.
So what do I do to the leftover mascara? Well I soak another clean cotton pad with the makeup remover and place it over the mascara and hold for 5 Second before wiping it off. 

And what happened? The mascara came off neatly and cleanly! I am really impressed!
mascara came off neatly and cleanly!
Everything wipe clean without washing.
After using the makeup remover, I do not have the sticky or oily feeling even without washing. I also do not have those after using makeup remover feel. I feel refresh and moisturize. Just like I have finished cleansing.

Although it say no cleansing needed, I still went ahead to do cleansing for double protection. Kiasu mah hehe!

I really like the results. I may consider switching over to using this makeup remover after I finished their Aqua Jelly Makeup Remover. 

Overall, this makeup remover is not sticky and oily after used. Its able to cleanly removed all makeups including waterproof makeups. After used, face feels refreshing and moisturizing too. Very convenient for lazy me that want to remove everything in 1 remover. :)

Review: Neogence Extremely Off-Heads Serum

Neogence Extremely Off-Heads Serum (15ml)
Today review is on Neogence Extremely Off-Heads Serum.

After using almost 3 quarter of this product, I did not see much significant effect it did to my face actually. My face did not improve significantly nor did it get worse. Its suppose to help in my pores, acne and blackheads, but I really did not observe much of an improvement other than less oily nose. My nose area however continue to have lots of blackheads. Perhaps no blemish growing on my face is already a control already.

  • AC. Net and Evermat - Adjust and control oil secretion
  • Witch Hazel Leaf Extract -Helps pores astringent.

My Review
Won this product through a contest on I-weekly magazine. Still remember how happy that I get to try product that I never use before. 

The Neogence Extremely Off-Heads Serum came pack in a nice box.
Came in a nice box.
As its a Taiwan product, the instructions and info on the box all came in Chinese. But lucky they place English instruction on it too. 

Opening the box, the Neogence Extremely Off-Heads Serum came in a small bottle with a nice serum extraction dispenser. I like the dispenser. It makes getting the right amount of serum so easy.

The serum has a gel like texture. Its not oily but its a bit sticky. 
Gel like texture that is a bit sticky.
One thing I like about this serum is that it's fast absorbed by my skin and it works well with my other daily skin care products and makeups. 

Having 3 quarter of the bottle used up, I didn't see much significant effect it had on my skin. But not totally no effect though. 

I didn't see much improvement and I didn't see my skin getting worse too. And one thing I did notice is that my nose area get less oily. 

What I didn't see work is it does not really do much to my pores. I still get lots of black heads around my nose area and it didn't help much in pores astringent. Although so, I did not really have much blemish on my skin. Perhaps it did really help my blemish with the oil control around the nose. :)

My Review
This was a sample redeemed from SampleStore.com last time.

The product came in a usual face wash tube. 
Face wash came in a tube.
Opening the cap.
The face wash was transparent in color. It is gel like in texture and it contain white small micro bits. 
Transparent with little white micro bits.
There was no particular smell when use and its quite difficult to lather foam.
Difficult to lather.
When I first see the white micro bits, I thought that this face wash should be effective. And it also stated that I will see result in the 1st day of use. 

However after used, I felt otherwise. In fact, my skin feel horrible after used. 

First, after wash, my face does not feel really clean. Its difficult to describe but I still feel some excessive oil even after use. Its not refreshing at all. 

It does not unclogged pores and it does not fight blemish at all. This is because after using for about 1 week, my face start to develop blemish again. 

I will not recommend it for those with oily or combination skin.I will not buy them since its not effective to me at all.


Overall this face wash is not very effective for oily and combination skin. Although its able to clean off dirt, its not able to effectively clean off the excessive oil on my face. After using for a week pimples start to grow on my face. Not very effective in blemish control.

Where to buy it?
