Beauty products of lower prices

Human-beings of course want to have things cheap but top quality, however, when it comes to beauty products which I actually have to apply on skin, if it's too cheap, I tend to be hesitant.

This Yukeido Placenta Collagen Mask is a typical product I want to talk about. This brand Yukeido is a Japanese brand, many people said it's useful and skin is actually whiter, brighter and finer after using it. But it's only US$22/5 pcs! Isn't it cheap? I have been skeptical, so I didn't try it until my sister talked about it and my colleagues saying it really works and worth buying. So I did, and I tried...it does work! Skin looks brighter instantly, I have used it for 3 consecutive nights now, and my skin seems to be finer. I will need to finish the other 2 to see the true result.

But so far, I like it. Here are some other brands which are also of lower price range for those who are interested to have a look:

Are you interested to try? Or you are as skeptical as I once were?


Boring hair smelling good

Thinking of changing my hair style these days, it's always when it gets hot then I want to have my hair cut short. I have been checking out some celebs hair styles, and I quite like Posh Spice's, but well I think I won't get that at the end because we Chinese have different "hair" from western people, our hair is not as soft, and especially mine, if I get her hair style and don't use hair drier to style my hair every morning, I'd better wear a hat to work. So...this one is not for me.

By the way, the main reason I captured Victoria's picture is the one of her and her son, it's funny how their styles contrast. She's looking cool and glamorous, while her son is looking like a rice dumpling, thick and non-stylish with the scarf wrapping round his head...haha! I just want to laugh when I look at this pic.

So, no straight short hair, then I move on to my other choice, curly long hair with volume, it's easy because I have lots of hair, thick dark hair, but I normally dye it brown. And this is the hairstyle I want to have, and the colour too. Hehe, I like this kind of curly hair because I don't need to comb ever after. Yeah! Seriously, whenever I have curly hair I never ever comb it, suits my laziness.

Ok, I need to figure out a date to fix my hair, they are getting more and more outrageous.

Although I am lazy in combing, but I am not stingy about the shampoo and conditioner, I like my hair to smell nice and feel good, so I try different brands from time to time.

Here are some good shampoo and conditioner suggestions:

Lavender Clarifying Shampoo
Almond Apple Hair Conditioner (Normal & Fine)

Burt's Bees
More Moisture Raspberry & Brazil Nut Shampoo
More Moisture Raspberry & Brazil Nut Conditioner

Sometimes I do treatments too:

Shea Butter Ultra Rich Hair Cream
(I really like the smell of L'Occitane's shea butter, like babies' smell)

Phytocitrus Vital Radiance Mask


Laneige TV commercial

Just saw a blog today with a TV commercial on it, so I thought I could also do the same, so I was searching some TV commercials. (Side note: I always find commercials outside Hong Kong funnier, e.g. Thailand) Anyway, I found this about Laneige Stylish Body Smoother and Stylish Body Pearl with Jeon Ji-hyun, she's famous in Korea and Hong Kong. I think she's quite cute, but not pretty.

Back to the product, at first I didn't really know how it works, I don't think it could be THAT shiny (as shown on the ad). I guess it would be great for parties! Ok, the brush is for the legs and arms and the puff is for applying to areas like neck and decollete. See the TV commercial, then you will understand.

But would the shine be gone very soon? Well, it doesn't really matter, does it? As long as your first appearance is sharp and pretty, it's enough. :)


Summer Must-haves!

Banner Maker

Summer is already here, but it's been rainy in Hong Kong, this week has become better, sunshine and blue sky, who wants to stay in the office? All I have in mind is the beach!

However, before going, some preparations are needed. And now I am going to share with everyone the products on my list.

A list of my summer must-haves:


Bikini!! (Have you got a cheap but pretty one from H & M yet?!)

Celluli Laser Biofibrine - High Precision Slimming Treatment

It seems too late too try to get rid of the celluli now, but this peel seems to work magic, see my other post about it. It might be too early to say, but I might soon be recommending it as a quick fix!

Dermalogica Multivitam in Body Block SPF 20

This body sun block has fast-absorbing formula so you don't feel greasy like many other sun blocks. The product even says "even sand won't stick to it!".


Clinique Derma White Super City Block SPF 40/PA++

At first I thought this could be used daily as a moisturizer, but after trying, it's actually a bit greasy for daily use, it's perfect for outdoor activities though! Long protection. Great!

SkinCeuticals Sport UV Defense SPF 45

An even higher SPF than the one from Clinique, but this one is waterproof and sweatproof. Suitable for swimming and the beach!

Dermalogica Solar Shield SPF 15

You won't want to have burnt lips, do you? Haha, imagine what they would look like--a pair of sausauges! It would be hilarious...

This can also be applied to nose and ears, basically for easily-burned areas. Water resistant up to 80 minutes.

Biotherm Biosource Skincare Gift Set (Normal to Combination Skin)

I always think that it's troublesome to need to pour my usual skincare products into small bottles for going the beach, now I just buy a skincare set to solve this problem, I can just pick and go.

This set has everything you need for the face:

  • BIOSOURCE - Clarifying Cleansing Gel (20 ml)
  • EAU D'ENERGIE - Awakening Mist (15 ml)
  • SOURCE THÉRAPIE SUPERACTIV - Boosted Spa Concentrate Revitalizing - Skin Perfector (15 ml)

  • Small hair comb


LANCÔME Hypnose Waterproof Mascara & Bi-Facil Exclusive Edition

You don't need to sacrifice your good look for going into the water.

Get this waterproof mascara set by LANCÔME, it comes with the mascara remover, it's really worth buying.

Shu Uemura Drawing Pencil

To highlight your big bright eye!


Burt's Bees Coconut Foot Creme

It's easy to forget about the feet, mine are dry especially after going to the beach. This cream is a savior so you can say bye to dry feet.

After sun:

Clarins After Sun Gel Ultra Soothing

After sun-bathing, skin becomes dry and hot, this gel gives you a soothing and relax feeling.


New discovery! Orange peel skin improved!

I have 2 packs of sample of this Celluli Laser Biofibrine - High Precision Slimming Treatment for over a month, and it's only 2 weeks ago I used it for the first time. It has quite a strong sweet smell, and the palms are sticky after applying, so can't let it penetrate, need to wash hands afterwards.

You are supposed to use it for 10 days consecutively to see results, but lazy me, I just used that night and stopped for a week. Last night, I used it again and today, the celluli on the sides of my thighs seem less obvious...I know it sounds strange, but it's true! I never thought this kind of thing would work, I am a true believer in excercises (when I am not lazy :P). I will keep applying and will keep you posted about the results. I still have 1 pack left...
