My Review
This is my first time trying out Loveisderma product. I really got a shock when I saw the product because it came in such a big tub. It's 2 times the size of my other wash off masque's container.

The tub came sealed in plastic on the outside and covered with aluminum foil on the inside.

It's great that spatula is given. This means that I do not need to use my hand to dig into the masque. Keeping the masque fresh at all time.

The masque has a gel like texture and is light pink in color. It produces a light floral fragrance smell.

It feels sticky when it's applied on my face. There is this little cooling feel as well during application.

One thing that caught my attention is that the instruction told to apply a "thick" layer. Well usually the wash off masque I tried before told to apply a "thin " layer. This is the first one that told me to apply it thick. Well this explains the big tub isn't it. πŸ˜†
During application.
So how do I feel after washing off? I felt really refreshing. My skin touches smooth as well. It does look a small percent of brighten up to me. As for the pores, no comment really coz I do not have large pores to start with. 

Any cons? Well, there are 2 negative points to me. First, the big tub means it's not really convenient to travel around with. Second, it took quite long for me to wash them off.

However, this masque is still worth a try to me as it does makes my skin smooth and hydrated. I also notice my skin does not feels so oily the next day morning when I wake up too.

My Review
I have been having dark circles for a long time. And because I am lazy, I always use my spectacle to cover it so that it will not be that obvious. 

But still, anything related to dark circles catch my attention. Recently, I saw a video post from BeautyMaker about Perfect Concealer Palette. It really caught my attention as I too wish to have that finishing effect. 

Looking at how easy it is to apply on the video, I decided to give it a try. And I really fall in love with them. 

Come....let me introduce them to you too. 

We shall start with the Photoshop Perfecting Concealer Brush.

This brush really came handy for applying concealer. The brush is really soft and have the perfect size for applying concealer around the eye area. The brush helped the concealer to blend well. 
Small and handy.

One more thing, it is easy to clean. I used a tissue to tap it clean after each use.

The palette consist of 4 colors, accompanied by an in-built mirror on the casing and a 2 sided brush. One side with flat brush and one side with pointed brush.

For concealing dark circles, I used the Photoshop Perfecting Concealer Brush. For concealing spots, I used the given 2 sided brush in the palette. Both brushes performed well.

From the 4 colors on the palette, color "D" is specially for covering dark circles. I use color "C" as the spots covering base. Then color "A" and "B" to blend well.

It is indeed easy to use. It does cover the dark circles very well and naturally. Look at the side of my picture with the dark circles concealed. Looks totally different isn't it. Perfectly covered.

I love it that it looks so natural. Not only dark circles, my spots or blemish nicely covered as well. It blend so well with my other makeups. 

It does made the finishing of my face looked smoother.
Before and After with other makeups as well.
And I am impressed that it lasted me throughout the day without the need to do touch up.

I did a small experiment on my hand. The happy face drawn using eye brown pencil is being concealed so well. It cannot be seen after using the concealer palette. Nicely and naturally covered.
Perfect Coverage.
I really love the concealer palette and brush so much. This is by far the best concealer I ever used. I highly recommend them to you too.
Nicely covered naturally and smoothly.

Review: Holika Holika Pig-Nose Clear Black Head 3-Step Kit

Holika Holika Pig-Nose Clear Black Head 3-Step Kit (1 sheet)
Having black head issue on the nose like I do? Come experience Holika Holika Pig-Nose Clear Black Head 3-Step Kit with me. 

Overall, this 3-steps kit works to remove my whiteheads, leaving my nose clean and smooth after use. However, more stubborn blackheads may need more application to be remove and each application is more time consuming then usual.

Holika Holika Pig-Nose Clear Black Head 3-Step Kit Summary
This is Holika Holika's black head removal sheets that comes in 3 steps. 

Suitable: All Skin Type

Benefits:
  • Remove most stubborn of impurities for perfect pores control. 
  • Step 1: Melts sebum and blackheads in pores.
  • Step 2: Remove blackheads and dead skin cells. 
  • Step 3: Pores tightening. Soothes pores.

How to use Holika Holika Pig-Nose Clear Black Head 3-Step Kit?
3 Steps:
  1. After cleansing, Apply step 1 to nose area and allow to sit for 15 - 20 mins to open up pores. 
  2. Dampen nose area with a bit of water and apply step 2 and let it sit for 10 - 15 minutes before removing. (Remove starting from side to middle.) 
  3. Apply step 3 to cleanse nose area. Leave on for 5 - 10 mins to minimize pores. Pat skin for better absorption. 

My Review
Blackheads is 1 issue that is forever troubling me. Especially nose area. It still look ok from far but when closed up, it looks awful. And even embarrassing when u realise that people is actually paying attention to your blackheads. 

I came across this very affordable blackhead removal sheet when browsing online store. The Pig nose and 3 steps makes me curious. Why pig nose? Because Pig nose have no black heads. 😁 This must be the first time you want your nose to be like pig's nose. 😝
Holika Holika Pig-Nose Clear Black Head 3-Step Kit.
I have tried 1 step removal but never 3 steps. This curiosity is enough for me to put this product in the shopping cart. 

First step is to put a serum sheet around the nose area to melt off sebum. There are lots of serum in the pack. Serum is watery and not sticky. But I do feel a little itchy during application.

I really like it when mask sheet is given to help tightened the pores. I do not need to separately prepare the mask sheet. Save my time. πŸ˜€
Step 3
Step 3: Mask Sheet
The mask sheet is place between a white plastic sheet and a net. The serum on the mask sheet is thick and sticky.

It feels really cooling during application and it is very slippery too as it kept on dropping.

During application.
This mask does really work to an extend. It feels clean and smooth after used. But very stubborn blackheads needs more application I think. As just 1 application cannot remove them. 

Also 3 steps means more time is needed to use them. It actually needs the time of mask application X 3. So you may want to apply it when you are not so busy. 😜😝
Before and after use.
Overall, I am satisfy with this 3-step kit.

Where to buy it?
Holika Holika Pig-Nose Clear Black Head 3-Step Kit can be bought from Althea Online Store. It was S$2.40 at time of review.

Review: YSL Temps Majeur Creme Intensive Skin Supplement

YSL Temps Majeur Creme Intensive Skin Supplement (5ml sample)
Let's discuss about YSL Temps Majeur Creme Intensive Skin Supplement today. 

Overall, this creme might not be suitable for my skin as I see no effect after using them. However, it is really generous for YSL for giving such big bottle of sample to try given that it is an expensive product.

  •  Trigger intensive restructuring action to regain skin youth.

Ingredients.

My Review
Already. This will be a backdated review. Let's see if I can still remember my after used experience. 

Kind of forgot how this bottle of sample came into picture. But it is quite a big bottle of sample given that this product is quite expensive. 
Generous Sample Size.
Not sure it is to be use as a treatment cream or just as a moisturiser in the skin care regiment. But I use it as a moisturiser.

The creme has a light creamy texture. I thought it will be oily given that it is use for anti aging. But it turns out alright to me. At least my face do not produce pimples during the period of using it. 
Creamy texture.
Lightweight and not oily.
However, I did not see any improvement to my skin during the period of using. Maybe my skin is not really that bad to see improvement in the first place. 😜

But one thing I must say is that this product is not within my budget. Too expensive for me to own 1. 😞

Where to buy it?
Not really sure where to buy this product. Should be available at YSL Store. Saw it at Lazada SG as well but out of stock. Heard that it is quite an expensive product. :(

Where to get sample?
Sample redemption is long over. No sample redemption that I know at the moment.
