My Review
I'm very excited to receive this Spray Lotion from SampleStore.com. Never used spray lotion before, so I can't wait to try this Palmer's latest innovation. :D

The spray lotion came in a tall spray bottle. 
Palmer’s Rapid Moisture Spray Lotion
The spray bottle, of course came with a spray dispenser. The usual dispenser that is able to be lock and unlock.

Lock and unlock logo printed nicely.
You are able to lock and unlock the dispenser.
The spray lotion itself contain very nice cocoa butter smell. If you love cocoa smell, you will love this spray lotion's smell. 

Also the spray lotion is colorless too. It only turn white color when it's spray too near the skin or spray too much. Texture wise, its somewhere between watery and creamy. It look watery, but when you massage, it feels creamy. 
How the spray lotion looks like just after spray before massage.
The spray lotion really do not feel sticky or greasy at all. Also it feels really lightweight. 

During application, the first thing I felt after massaging is it's indeed cooling. The spray lotion absorb faster than normal apply lotion. 

To spray the lotion, I need to hold 7 - 10 cm from the skin in a continuous motion. After that massage the lotion. 
To spray the lotion, I need to hold 7 - 10 cm from the skin.
Spraying the lotion, need some practice. I said this coz I not only need to spray it the right way, I also need to take care not to spray it on the floor. And a lot of time, I always accidentally miss the spray and lotion landed on the floor. Then, next thing is I get scolding from my mum for making the floor so slippery. :(

Beside the above con point, the spray lotion can be consider good for lazy people as well as people who do not like the lotion to be all over the hand and after lotion applied feel.

After using, I do feel that my skin is soft and smooth for a long time. 24hours as what was written?? Nahh.....it does stay soft and smooth longer than normal lotion but definitely not 24hours. 

It is good for use on the go but not good to bring for travel I personally feel. First, it is such a big bottle and second, its like hair spray which is a problem for flight travel.

This cleansing oil is able to cleanly remove makeup without leaving any oily feeling after wash. Its able to remove even waterproof makeup with some massage. But with combination skin, I'm really still not comfortable to use oil base makeup remover for long term.

My Review
Never really did redeem this cleansing oil sample. I remember it came together with the Hada Labo Hydrating lotion samples. 

The sample came in 3ml sachet. Just enough for 2 usage to me. 
3ml Sample Pack.
The cleansing oil is colourless, with no fragrance smell. 
Colorless.
It is oil based. So I really have concern using them on my skin. But after trying, I felt that it doesn't feel like other oil base makeup remover, leaving a greasy feeling on the skin. In fact, after washing off, it does not feel oily at all. 

It also leave a smooth feeling after wash. But I do need to follow up with using my cleanser to completely remove the after feel of using makeup remover. Those refreshing feeling.

How about those makeup, is it really removed? 

Well, it did really effectively remove not only light makeup but also those waterproof and heavy makeup too. 

Lets us see a test with those makeup on my hand. 

From left to right: Silky Girl Big Eye Mascara, Loreal Lipstick, Covermark Foundation, The Body Shop simmer, The Body Shop Eye brown pencil, Silky Girl Blusher, Silky Girl Eye Shadow, Jill Lowe Eye Liner. 
Makeup apply on my hand for test.
Put some Cleansing oil and massage to half of the makeup and wash off. 
Massage the cleansing oil to half of the makeup.
The part where its being cleanse with the remover is all very cleanly remove. 
Half of the part cleanse with the makeup remover, makeup cleanly removed.
Completely cleanse.
But for waterproof makeup, need to massage a little longer to completely remove.

Overall, this cleansing oil is able to cleanly remove makeup without leaving any oily feeling after wash. Its able to remove even waterproof makeup with some massage. But with combination skin, I'm really still not comfortable to use oil base makeup remover for long term with fear of blemish development. 

Where to buy it?
Hada Labo Cleansing Oil can be bought at Watsons, Guardian and other departmental Store at a price of S$20.90 for 200ml.

Where to get samples?

Event: Nail Art Workshop: Depend Cosmetic by Meclub


Its been long since I attend any events or workshops. hehe.... pretty lazy to attend. Mediacorp's Meclub had a Nail Art Workshop for redemption last month. Well, kind of fun by looking at the itinerary list for the workshop. So I decided to redeem a pair of tickets to the workshop.

The Nail Art Workshop: Depend Cosmetic courtesy of Mediacorp's Meclub as well as Depend Cosmetic was held at Watsons HQ Fuji Towers on 24 April 2015. 

Its a pair of tickets to the workshop. So I dated my other blogger friend Rena to the workshop. 
Went with my best buddy Rena.
The moment we step into the room where the workshop was held, we do what we like best, eat!!! As its still early, we feast on the Twelve Cupcakes prepared for us. 
Twelve Cupcakes to serve us. Yummy!
After placing the delicious Twelve Cupcakes into my stomach, its work time!

The workshop is totally hands-on. No powerpoint slides and talking non stop. Its just simple instructions, step by step and then hands-on. At the end of the day, all of us will go home with nicely painted nails by our-selves using Depend Cosmetic's GelLack that will last up to 3 weeks. (well, 3 weeks is what they say. We shall see.) 

No need to go nail salon anymore. We can do our own pro nails just at home. :)

Ok, lets begin!

Our table is lay with Depend Cosmetic's GelLack products. 
Table all ready prepared.
Depend GelLack Products.
Depend GelLack Nail Polish.
Depend GelLack LED Lamp.
We first learn basic manicure and pedicure technique. Select the right nail shape (Square, round and oval) and color according to our hands. But for me, well, I just choose whatever shape I feel comfortable to me.

Next we learn how to shape our nails and cuticles. We learn that we don't remove the cuticles as they are there to protect our nail matrix. We just gently push them in so that the nail polish can be painted nicely in shape.
False nails use for practicing.
After shaping and filing our nails. We are all ready to start our nail painting. 
My nails before anything is done.
Before we can even paint the nails with colors, we do the cleansing first.

Use the Before/After Cleanser.
Using a stronger cotton pat.
My nails after all the cleansing work. All ready to start painting.
Next we start with the Base coat. We first paint the 4 fingers of one hand, bake in the Depend GelLack LED Lamp for 30 seconds. Then Do the same to the 4 fingers of the other hand and lastly we do it for our 2 thumbs. 
Base Coat.

After nail is baked in the LED Lamp.
After the base coat, we are all ready to start with our first coating of colors. 

I have chosen blink blink gold color.
Goldie gold for the nail color. Gold night glitters for the top nail portion.
I don't really paint nails often. So what is good about this nail polish is that it does not dry up so easily. After I paint it on the nail, I can clean those parts that I accidentally paint out of nails. I can also slowly touch up to even out the color. 

As long as I did not bake the nail under the LED lamp, everything can be adjust until I like without the fear its going to dry up. Its only going to be permanent (as long as we don't use nail remover) until I finish baking it in the LED Lamp. Very good for beginners really. 

Ok Back to my nails. I repeated the steps of paint, adjust, bake for 3 coating of the gold color nail I choose. 
Goldie Gold color.
After First coating.
After 3 coating.
After I am happy with the nail colors, we go on to nail art painting. 

But we don't really have time left for nail art. So I only did paint some gold night glitters on my top nail portion to give it a special finish.

Then its off to finishing it with the top coat.

After which, we will need to wait for 30 seconds for everything to settle down before we clean our sticky nails with the After cleanser. 
Clean off the stickiness with Before/After Cleanser.
After cleansing to remove the stickiness, we apply the nail oil and cream.

And Ta Da!!!! Very nicely finished nails that look really pro isn't it. I can't believe its done by me. So pretty!

And my buddy Rena painted her nails differently. Also very pro and pretty.

We can start a nail salon at home already. Strictly by appointment please...lol

And thanks to Mediacorp Meclub and Depend Cosmetic, we all go home with these nails essential tools goodies bag too. 
Goodies bag to bring home.
And Rena and I can't help starring at our own beautiful nails all the way in the MRT until we reach home. 

And the nails color last really long. Its still as shine and pretty. Just some peeling off at the cuticles areas after 2 weeks of my rough action. 
After 2 weeks, nail color still as shine and beautiful. Just a little peel at the cuticles area.
My verdict, its a good nail polish set to invest for those really into nails. :) The products can be found at Watsons Bugis, Vivo and Nex as well as online Depend Cosmetic Website.
