The Story about Palmolive Shower Gel, My Husband, Zombies and a Cockroach…


Warning :  This is a long story, but it is a true story.

One day in our local supermarket…

Me :  We need to buy new shower gel.
Husband :  Why?
Me :  Because we’ve ran out!  Duh!
Husband :  But you’re a beauty blogger!  Don’t brands send you shower gels???
Me :  Nope.
Husband :  Can’t you ask them to?

Me *rolls eyes* and gives Husband the “WTF?! face” and goes to look at the shower gel selection.

I scanned the shelves to see what was on special offer (yes, I am Asian like that!) and these big bottles of Palmolive Shower Gels caught my eye.  The Palmolive Invigorating Shower Gel with Pomegranate and Mango tickled my eyeballs and I sneakily took a sniff and I WAS SOLD as it smelt divine!  And yes, I actually bought the same one I sniffed – I am not THAT gross 😛


I get to test Clearasil Daily Clear Vitamins & Extracts Daily Wash – Thank You Skincare Gods!

mini breakout along jawline

As you know, I have been slightly stressed lately with work-related issues and something called life.  Stress doesn’t agree with my skin and I have been having mini breakouts with spots around my jawline and blackheads on my nose.  (Arghh..and the picture of me is taken AFTER I have applied make-up but you can still see my bad skin!)  Strangely enough, squeezing spots and blackheads provides some stress relief but sadly, walking around in public with red blotches all over my face afterwards isn’t exactly confidence boosting….


What The Muk?

muk spa hair products and style stick

Oh hello there!  Let’s ignore the fact that I have been AWOL from the blog, but I was in major stress mode 😛  Anyway, allow me to introduce you to the new range of muk hair products  – muk Spa – that my hair has been roadtesting for the last few weeks…

Elizabeth Arden Flawless Finish Sponge-On Cream Makeup – Review & Swatches

Elizabeth Arden Flawless Finish Foundation

Hi peeps, I’m still alive.  Less stressed than last week, but unfortunately still stressed so bear with me until I can get back to a regular blogging schedule.  Thanks 🙂


In my early twenties, I flirted a lot with a wide range of beauty brands and Elizabeth Arden was one of them.  Back then, all the magazines raved about their Eight Hour Cream and I bought it…and it was okay…but not spectacular.  Instead, my skin loved their Visible Difference range.  Fast forward a couple of years and I started to think that Elizabeth Arden was WAY too mature for me.  I still continued to love their Green Tea EDT though 😛  Anyway, I am now in my early thirties and Elizabeth Arden has caught up with me again with their Prevage range and now, their make-up in the form of Elizabeth Arden Flawless Finish Sponge-On Cream Makeup.
