        Bath & Body Works

        By chocfull · July 27, 2012 · 0 Comments ·

        I love their body products. Was stock-piling many years ago on their shower gels, lotions & splashes through friends who travel to & from USA. Been a while since I bought them & there are a whole host of new scents available now. I always like to slap on their lotion post shower before bed. They absorb really fast & some of the foodie scents linger throughout the night. My sister picked up a few of the mini bottles for me during her last trip. 

         

        Midnight Pomegranate – This is very fruit sweet bordering on sick sweet ala TBS Cranberry which I OD-ed on years ago. The sweetness however is not overly cloying as TBS. It lasts through the night & stays fruity sweet. I was glad to finish this tho coz when it gets really warm, it can get a lil too much for the olfactory senses.


        White Citrus – This is one refreshing scent. Well it has to be since part of the name is Citrus yeah? But really this is floral, light floral with a citrus twist. If you hate citrus zing, then you would probably be sneezing away. I like this & it dries dowb a bit more floral than citrus. Refreshing scent esp for warm days. I am almost finishing this & I really want to repurchase this sometime in the future when my stash of body lotions goes down a little.

        Kao Curel & Dr Wu ~ reviews!

        By chocfull · July 27, 2012 · 0 Comments ·

        Kao Curel – Saw this brand at every Matsumoto Kiyoshi in Tokyo. Curious but I did not get it then coz I travelled with a light un-expandable luggage & boy, did I shop a storm when I was there. Those who are following me on Instagram would have seen my crazy buys! Anyway I finally got the Trial set at Watsons. I had initially wanted to try just the lotion but thought I might as well get the Trial kit & try more of their products. This set supposedly last 20 days but I did not track my usage so no idea if it really lasts 20 days. I also used 1 product at a time coz my skin sometimes react to new skin care & it would be easier to track the culprit that way.

         

        ***I have not used all the items in this box so here are reviews of items tested!

         

        Kao Curel Foaming Wash – This is very light being a foam wash. It cleanses pretty decent without drying out skin. It takes away oily nose & t-Zone but I feel it does not strip off all dirt. When I use it after Makeup Cleansing Gel, I could see that there is residue left behind. A swipe with toner soaked cotton wool shows traces of foundation. I will not repurchase.

         

        Kao Curel Makeup Cleansing Gel – Now this is interesting. This is supposedly their star product too. This is in gel form which you rub on dry face. As you rub in, it feels like typical cleansing oil albeit a little thicker. You need some effort to rub off waterproof eyeliner but it does all go away. You then rinse off just like you do with cleansing oil. This totally strips makeup off but on days I do not rub in, there will be residue left on skin which the foaming wash cannot seem to wash off. I think it could be the thicker consistency of the gel. I do like this enough to buy a full sized bottle which was on sale at Watsons for <$15 IIRC.

         

        Kao Curel Body Wash – This is not scented. Something I am not used to for my showergels. I like them scented, stronger better as it makes bath time enjoyable. This lathers nicely & cleans without a layer of wax of skin. Neither did it leave skin dry. The first few times I use this, my skin broke out in rash. My skin was probably getting used to it? After a week rest, I started to use on alternate days & my skin stop reacting. I use this continously for days, 2 weeks probably. I was not having more rashes/reaction of any kind compare to using normal scented showergel. I don't see any great improvement to my skin. I also started to hate the slight acidic scent of this. Thus I did not finish this. It is now left in abandonment.

         


        Dr Wu Intensive Hydrating Toner with Hyaluronic Acid – I love everything HA. My skin is generally dehydrated. This is supposedly suitable for dehydrated & sensitive skin but this is not for me. When I use this, I get angry itchy spots on my face esp where the skin IMO is thinnest like under eye area, temple & around the lips & chin area. It itch for days before it dries up & flakes off. The effectis very subtle & I only realize it is the culprit after a few days. Continued use makes the spots itchy-ier. I stop using it afer a week. I think there is something in all Taiwanese skincare that my skin reacts to. Just don’t know which it is. Reaction is the same all the time.

        MAC Blush - so is it real?

        By chocfull · November 18, 2011 · 0 Comments ·

        Picked up some items(mostly e/s brushes) from Smoochiezz Flea Mart last weekend. Came back home & did some MAC blush comparison with the one I had at home. I've always purchased MAC from MAC counters. I wanted to compare the box it came in but I had none(just threw mine a week or so ago) so I went to MAC day after & bought a few more blush. & yes, I have a serious weakness for blushers from all brands & in all shades. So what did I find out? Lots about the packaging but I shall let pictures do the talking.

        The print on the box on the right has rubbed off a little, looks like it was from water stains.

        The label at the bottom is a sticker! MSF from MAC S'pore are also stickers but Blush are not. Maybe it was a batch to batch thing? Check your boxes if you have them & let me know what is on yours.

        Again we are seeing stickers! Again those on my MSF are but not the new blush I picked up. These barcodes are printed on the box itself.

        The label on the box at the bottom of pic is printed very lightly on.

        The one on the right is not filled to the top of the pan. This again could be a batch to batch thing?

        The quality of the label bottom of pot on the right looks cheap & rough. The fonts are marginally different. The etchings on the packaging itself says the same things BUT the fonts are not really the same.

        The catch of the one on the right is sleeker in design, opens with a hard snap & locks with loud snap. Granted this could vary from piece to piece since it is a plastic piece.

        This I thought was quite distinctive. See the lid at the top that joins to the centrepiece which acts as a mechanisom to aid opening & closing of the case? The gap is bigger. Next, see that dot on the centrepiece? The one on top is rough. The one at the bottom is smooth & finishing is sleek. IIRC that hole is a gate that pumps molten polymeric material into the mould during the moulding process of the packaging. It can be trimmed off when it is ejected out of the mould.  

        So it could be a batch to batch difference? But so many distinctive characters off? & the very thing that pictures could not capture is the really mild powder pleasant scent of the MAC blush from MAC Cosmetics Singapore vs the crayon-y scent of the ones from Smoochiezz. The unique characteristics in the MAC Cosmetics packaging remains unique to all their blush & the unique characteristics in those from Smoochiezz remains unique throughout all their blush. Could they be rejects? Or are they just rip-offs? If I ask Smoochiezz on the variation, would they give me an answer? So what do you think?
