Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Body Mist Sunscreen Spray SPF 30

Fact : In Australia, 1 in 2 people have skin cancer!  One of the ways to prevent skin cancer is by using sunscreen.  Now if you’re lazy like me, you’ll want a sunscreen which does not require too much effort to put on.  I have the perfect sunscreen for this job – Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Body Mist Sunscreen Spray SPF 30.

Product Description

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Body Mist Sunscreen Spray is a breakthrough in sun protection.  Stabilised with Helioplex technology, it provides balanced broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection against anti-aging UVA and burning UVB rays in an ultra-light, non-greasy finish.  This weightless formula applies easily to even hard-to-reach areas.

I Love Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Body Mist Sunscreen Spray Because

  • It’s a colourless spray
  • Cooling on a hot day
  • Non-comedogenic so it won’t clog my pores

The only thing I don’t particularly like about it is its strong hairspray-ish smell.  Just hold your breath when you spray it on yourself!

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Body Mist Sunscreen Spray gets a 9.5 out of 10 from me.

Outfit Of The Day : Black And Grey

Black is a staple colour in my wardrobe.  Black is slimming.  White isn’t.  I just look like a fat white blob when I wear white.  Yep, even when I wore my white wedding gown, I looked like a big fat white meringue!!  LOL.  Anyway, here’s what I wore the other day.

Australis Copper Nail Polish

Recently, I have been browsing through Australian make-up brands.  I came across Australis and as there was a special offer, I bought Australis Copper nail polish.

Product Description

One coat copper colour with a high shine, streak free formula

I thought the colour would look good under the sun with its coppery shimmery shade.  Don’t get me wrong, the colour is great – but it doesn’t really suit me.  It actually looks better on my toes…

Swarovski Maskerade Pierced Earrings

My cousin from Hong Kong bought me this gorgeous pair of Swarovski Maskerade earrings as a wedding present.

Swarovski earrings
Jewellery Description from the Swarovski website

Modern, geometric elegance – this exquisite pair of pierced earrings offers a beautiful long silhouette and a fine jewellery look. The rhodium-plated circles symbolise eternity and are embellished with bezel-set crystals and clear crystal pavé. Combine the earrings with the matching pendant or bangle for a sophisticated look.

Swarovski

The earrings were packaged in the classic Swarovski dark blue box and there was also a certificate inside.

The only turn-off about these earrings is the plastic earring butterfly backs – they just don’t do it for me.

Swarovski earrings When the light hits it at certain angles, they are really pretty and sparkly.  Now I just need to find an excuse to wear them out.

(And erm…wait a minute…why does that photo make me look like I have sideburns??!!!)

ASOS Body Con With Mesh Insert Swimsuit

A couple of months ago, I went on ASOS website to browse their sale items and I stumbled upon this sexy body con with mesh insert swimsuit

  • Mesh swimsuit by ASOS Premium
  • Cut out section and mesh insert detail
  • High leg halter neck low back design

Hello?  The model looks so damn sexy wearing it.  Anyway, I posted this up on my Facebook and I got this reply from my cousin.  She said (and I quote), “R u being serious?!  That’s really tacky!” – and just because she said that, I went ahead and bought it!!!

Now there’s a problem, you see.  And that is – I CAN’T SWIM!  I hate the water and I have tried but failed miserably at learning to swim.  So why do I need a swimsuit??

Anyway, it was sunny today so I decided to do a bit of camwhoring in the swimsuit.  I love the cut-outs in the swimsuit and the halterneck style.  But I dislike that there is no padding in the boobs area – what if I wore it on a cold day…?  Need I say more?  Nipples alert!  There, I said it!

Note : no nipples are shown in the photos below.

So I totally disagree with my cousin. I don’t think I look tacky. Instead, the words – beached whale, flat chest, big belly and cellulite come to mind! LOL!

Girls, are you a swimsuit or bikini gal?  Guys, do you like girls wearing swimsuits or bikinis?

Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid Cream

Continuing on from my reviews of Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid products, I give you Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid Cream.

Hada Labo products, reviews

Product Description

  • Contains Super Hyaluronic Acid that deeply penetrates the skin to nourish and helps restore skin’s barrier to prevent moisture loss
  • It helps to soften epidermis, leaving skin smooth and hydrated
  • Light and non-greasy cream that infuses your skin with continuous moisture

I have been very impressed with the Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic range so far…but when it comes to the cream, that’s another story.

Hada Labo products, reviews

First of all, the Hada Labo SHA Cream is too runny for my liking.  When I scoop some out of the jar, I find myself quickly whacking it on my face before the cream seeps through my fingers!!!  Seriously, what is up with that?

As for moisturising effects, it hydrates my skin like the other products in this range.  It is excellent at that…but…

I Don’t Like Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid Cream Because

  • It’s too runny!
  • It does not contain SPF which means if I use it as a day cream, I still need to put on sunscreen (hello, lazy Ling here!!)
  • It’s too runny!!
  • As a night cream, I feel that it is too light and not as rich as my other night creams.
  • It’s too runny!!!

Catch my drift?

Have you tried Hada Labo SHA Cream?  What did you think of it?
