This post is somewhat the continuation of my previous X'mas-New Year post. ^^ (Read HERE for the previous post)
Last year Dec 16-19, I and a few friends went to Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur for a Cosplay event, Comic Fiesta 2011. The CF 2011 was held at Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (KLCC) and we stayed only a walking distance away, which is the Impiana Hotel.
The Petronas Twin Towers taken at night with Iphone. I posted this pic on that day in Instagram.
So, have you LOL when you watched the video? Well, I did. Its like so funny! XD~kakakaka~ Apparently, also laughing at myself because I like using photoshop too to PS (shortform of photoshop) photos. kekekx~
What I normally do with Photoshop: Usually I would bring up the levels and curves to make the picture brighter and adjust contrast/vibrance to make the colours look more lively and vibrant, as my photos are often too dull or taken in low lit room. When it comes to PSing a person, I'll usually focus on the face first (ie, wrinkles, ance, pimples, etc) then the shadows. Harsh shadows on the face will make the face look distorted and somehow look old too so i will reduce the shadows accordingly to my preference. That is also why the reason pro photographers use so many lightings! So that no harsh shadows are seen on any part of your face, this will then make your face look realllllllly smooth and young!
Photo Manipulation: I also do photo manipulation. Not very frequent but its really fun to do so when I have the heart to do it. Eventually, the photo will turn out to be non-realistic or half realistic, its like a masterpiece work of art. kkekex.. I usually do it for cosplay photos (Like THIS) but sometimes I will have a 'lightbulb' on a certain subject and then I'll do it too. Just like THIS. Its unlike phone applications where you can just add effects and add in ribbons or glasses and stuffs and VIOLA! Apps are pretty standard, many people can have the same effect as yours if they use the same app, but NOT for photoshop. Using photoshop to do photo manipulation is so much more tiring than using the apps (of course! =p), everything is basically starting from scratch. You do not have ready lighting effects nor ready made ribbons for you to use. You need to search for pictures, edit them to your liking, or even start by drawing one. Every button in photoshop can create different effects to your photo. And you need to keep layering and layering and layering to add in more effects to make your photo look nicer. There was a saying that "In this world, there will not be a 2nd person who will create the exact same effects as yours." And that is why Photoshop is a Wonder. ^_^
Despite that this video is trying to make fun of people who uses photoshop, it still won't stop the world from using it. I believe Photoshop had to be one of the best program ever made in earth. Lolx~ XD~
So, what are your thoughts about Fotoshop or Photoshop? ^.^

On Dec, SampleStore sent 4 sample size (Unilever) CLEAR Shampoo to me for review.
They are: - CLEAR Nourishing Scalp Care MEN Anti-Dandruff Shampoo (Anti Hair Fall) 80ml
- CLEAR Nourishing Scalp Care MEN Anti-Dandruff Shampoo (Cool Sport Menthol) 80ml
- CLEAR Nourishing Scalp Care WOMEN Anti-Dandruff Shampoo (Anti Hair Fall) 80ml
- CLEAR Nourishing Scalp Care WOMEN Anti-Dandruff Shampoo (Ice Cool Menthol) 80ml
"An all-new shampoo that effectively eliminates your dandruff with every wash" - by Unilever CLEAR
Before you start tackling your dandruff problem, its best that you know.................. "What Causes Dandruff?" Dandruff facts - The real culprit of Dandruff is a fungus (bacteria) called “Malassezia” that lives on the scalps of most healthy adults. But sometimes it grows out of control causing irritation that leads to increased cell turnover. The result is a large number of dead skin cells. As the cells fall off, they tend to clump together with oil from the hair and scalp, making them appear white, flaky and all too visible.
- Dandruff is a scalp disorder which is marked by itching and excessive flaking of the scalp.
- Scalp is skin and as such contains the same key structures as the rest of our skin. Different people have different scalp skin & needs. Only by deeply penetrating and nourishing the scalp from within, Dandruff will be eliminated and not come back.
- Sweating, increased oil production, hormonal fluctuations, stress, UV radiation, infrequent washing, diets, food allergies, pollution etc. also contribute to the development of Dandruff.
- Physical and mental stress, both contribute to dandruff and worsen dandruff problems. So it is important to take good care of yourself and adopt a healthy lifestyle.
- If you suffer from excessive dandruff, try avoiding starchy foods, meat, sugar, strong tea, and coffee, pickled and processed food.
Write-up & Ingredients:Back of each bottle(Click to enlarge)
Swatches: Below shows the colour difference in (left) Anti Hair-fall - White; and (right) Menthol shampoo - Pale Blue The colour of the content is the same for MEN's range & WOMEN's range.
*DO YOU KNOW?* Do you use Shampoo to wash your hair? Or your scalp? Answer is SCALP. (and hair near roots area) People tend to use Shampoo on their hair only and later realised that they have itchy scalp with dandruff but their hair ends are very dry! That's because they never once wash their scalp with shampoo causing dirt trapping around the hair roots and forming of layers of deadskin. And the hair are lack of its natural moisture because its been overly-washed! Scalp needs to be shampoo-ed on a daily basis with a little scalp massage work using our fingers. This is so, that the bubbles (foam we lathered up) can takeaway the dirt, dandruff and deadskin with it during rinse off.
Review of CLEAR WOMEN Anti-Dandruff Shampoo (Anti Hair Fall & Ice Cool Menthol): - Both are easy to lather - Anti Hair fall shampoo has a milky powdery scent, where Ice Cool Menthol has this light Menthol powdery floral scent - My scalp only felt cooling sensation when I'm using Ice Cool Menthol - After washing off the shampoo, my hair doesn't feel too dry nor do my hair strands tangle & stick together when its still damp (Mind that I am using on shoulder length bleached hair with about 2cm growing black roots.) - My hair colour doesn't fade off when using both shampoos - I do not feel there's a big difference from using CLEAR Anti-dandruff Shampoos compare to my other kinds of shampoo. - No adverse effect in hair fall or breakage - The only 1 thing I felt is that both shampoos provided enough condition (moisture) for my very dry hair, but it did not help for my oily scalp. After half a day, my scalp became pretty oily and it started to itch a little. (I'm usually indoors, working in an air-con room) - As I do not have Dandruff problem, hence I could use almost all kinds of shampoo without any problems, except for super nourishing kind that will make my scalp feel even oilier. - It would be good to use CLEAR shampoo on a daily basis on a normal to dry scalp & hair - Not really recommended for oily to very oily scalp & hair - I like both shampoos' scent, and I usually prefer to use Menthol shampoo when I have itchy scalp or when it feels oily and sticky. The menthol shampoo gives my scalp a refreshing feel
Review of CLEAR MEN Anti-Dandruff Shampoo (Anti Hair Fall & Cool Sport Menthol): ***When used on Woman's bleached hair with 2cm growing black roots*** - Both are easy to lather - Anti Hair fall shampoo has a milky minty scent, where Ice Cool Menthol has a strong minty menthol scent - The Strong mint scent from Cool Sport Menthol was overwhelming, I could hardly breathe when I was lathering it - I experience only a slight difference for CLEAR MEN shampoo compare to CLEAR WOMEN Shampoo, that is my scalp doesn't feel as oily after using CLEAR MEN. (Lolx! Am I a MEN?) Obvious reason might be I have very oily scalp even though I have bleached hair. My scalp doesn't itch like when I'm using CLEAR WOMEN range - As for my hair to hair ends, they feel pretty much the same as like when I'm using CLEAR WOMEN. Not drying, feels like its been slightly conditioned. ***When used on Man's virgin black hair*** - The man in da house said there isn't much difference between Anti Hair Fall & Ice Cool Menthol, except for the scent. - He prefered Ice Cool Menthol as it has a strong menthol scent which he feels its more refreshing (Reason might be he previously used Menthol Shampoo everyday, he's quite immune to menthol scent & flavor. lolx~) - He like both Shampoos as they both cleanses his scalp pretty well (he has dandruff), and he love the fact that the shampoo doesn't leave his hair feeling dry. - His hair feels like as if its been conditioned after shampooing, hence he skipped using conditioner. Unlike previous brands, his hair tangles and feels dry which he need to condition everyday. - He is now a Convert! (congrats! ^^)
Overall review of CLEAR MEN & WOMEN Anti-Dandruff Shampoo (Anti Hair Fall & Ice Cool Menthol): - Recommended for both women & men who has dandruff - Not neccessarily that a woman must use WOMEN range while a man uses the MEN range shampoo. As can see from my review above, it is more suitable for me to use the MEN range as I have oily scalp which I think my scalp's probably oilier than any other woman who have oily scalp. ^^" lolx~ - If you do not have Dandruff, you can still use this shampoo but not on a daily basis. Use it only when you start to experience slight dandruff problem or when you have very dry/ itchy/ oily/ moist/ smelly scalp. You say "smelly!?", yes you heard it right. It probably had been caused by excessive sweating or fungus (bacteria), thats why it smells if its left untreated.
Just a word of advise from me: If you LOVE your hair then, DO NOT BE LAZY. Blow dry your hair everytime after you come out of shower. Sleeping with damp hair will damage your hair AND your scalp. If you love it, do the neccessary thing. This little piece of advise goes to everyone with any kinds of hair [virgin/coloured/grey]

I hadn't been blogging since last year (lolx). For past 2 months+ I was very busy with work, going out on my off days and preparing my cosplay stuff (More like resting when I have some spare time as I'm just too tired! lolx~). Now I got lots of stuffs to write about: my collective haul, my birthday, my trip to KL, X'mas presents! ^o^ And not forgetting reviews! I hadn't been doing it for so long! Pls forgive me *bows* m(_ _")m
Anyhoo, hereby presenting my cosplay, me as 藤乐乐 [Teng Le Le] from 独领风骚 [THE ONE], taken by Data. This is like my.... 3rd time cosplaying the same character? ^^" I never get bored of doing it cos its considered the least troublesome costume among the rest. And its my first time cosplaying outside of Singapore! Hence I'm very excited about it! XD~ Following 3 photos all taken at Impiana Hotel in KL, Malaysia.Thats the hotel that we stayed during Comic Fiesta 2011 @ KLCC (CF Facebook) (More coverage @ Danny Choo) Its an overall good hotel, I like it ^^, service & food was ok. We only experienced once which the power tripped in the morning and we have to brush teeth in the dark toilet even though its morning lolx~ Cos everyday in KL was cloudy~
Though I always been busy, that doesn't stop me from taking pics of my OOTD when I'm going out on my Off days. (My Off days are like, very RARE~) Hmm.. I'm thinking should I rename my blog to like, Monthly Dressup Shots instead of Daily? ahhax~ I seriously do not know why I put Daily. *knocks own head* (>,<")o~
Anyhoo, if you had been following me in Instagram, you probably had seen my OOTD shots as like below: (Clicky to enlarge)
I recently received a Rohto-Mentholatum Mogitate Kajitsu series Lip balm from The Sample Store. Before I begin, hereby showing you a CM of the Mogitate Kajitsu series Lip Balm by KAT-TUN!!! ~KYAAaa~~ ♥ How lovely~~~~ \\(@w@)// *watery puppy eyes*
Mentholatum Mogitate Kajitsu with Real, Natural Fruit Juice & Honey# 1 Bestselling Lipbalm Brand in Japan
Mogitate Kajitsu is made with Fresh Fruit Juice which contains essential minerals and vitamins that are beneficial to the lips and body. It also contains Honey, which heals and renews the lips. With Mentholatum Mogitate Kajitsu lip balms, now you can get Real, Natural Fruity Goodness to nourish your lips and make it soft, supple and oh-so-kissable!
The goodness of it: Natural Fruit Juice, Honey, Bee Wax, Squalene, Grape Seed Oil, Vitamin A and E and lastly, it has UV Protection!
Not sure is it my luck? I gotten the Rohto-Mentholatum Mogitate Kajitsu Lip Balm in Orange and Mango one!!! YEAH! (instead of strawberry or other kinds.. u know i hate anything berries! ^.^")
Review: - Easy to glide onto lips - Using the lip balm alone, make the lips look slightly glossy~ - Smells more like orange than mango - It's good for my daily lip moisturising maintenance - A tad oily, hence the pigments of my lipstick is not able to grab onto my lips as the lip balm creates a barrier inbetween them. I will need to apply a few times more before my lipstick colour shows up - I also use this over a lipstick when I feel my lips are rather dry from wearing the lipstick too long, it makes my lipstick looks slightly gloss and makes my lips look softer - I like to apply lipbalm immediately after my foundation, realise that the white residues appear on my lips as those are some of the foundation accidentally applied onto my lips. Need to tissue off the whole lips before applying the lip balm again. - I only use this balm for day use before my lipstick or gloss as I have another lip gel that I use at night for intensive lip care purpose - For very dry crack lips, its advisible to not use this balm over the crack lips, as this is not moisturising enough to soften the dead skin - I have trouble of turning the product back to its base now, as it got stuck in that same protruding position after my first use. (Frustrating everytime a lipbalm or lipstick does this!) So after I use it, I push the stick against my lips & get the balm back to its base position. hahax~ ^⌂^"
Overall, this is a good lip balm which i will bring along with me anywhere I go. I love using both lip balms and lipsticks as I have dry lips plus pigmented lips. ^_^" I can have like 1 lipbalm in 1 bag, so I do not need to move around the lip balms from bag to bag! lolx~ >∇<
♥♥♥ Lip Balms, the more the merrier!!! ♥♥♥ Below shoes my moisturised lips with Rohto-Mentholatum Mogitate Kajitsu Lip Balm (Orange & Mango), top with my Lavshuca lipstick in PK-7! Should I pose like KAT-TUN, open the cap and sniff it in flowery boy poses... and draw hearts flooding out of the lip balm? kekkex~
WHERE TO BUY? The Mentholatum Mojitate Kajitsu (Fresh Fruits) Lipbalms retail at $5.90 each exclusively at all Watsons stores. It comes in FIVE different flavours, which are Lemon & Lime, White Peach, Strawberry Grape & BerryandOrange & Mango!!!!
2 months back, I received a parcel from JoyPharm. It was sent to me for review. ^-^v~ Ah~ Yes I took rather long to review this as I'm really tied up with work and many other events which took away almost all my Off days, thus making it even harder for me to find some free time to blog about it. ^^"
See the cute kitty beside my nick......I love kitties! =^ὼ^=
In this small parcel, packed lots of stuffs~ ^^ - 2 pcs Leaders Clinic I.P.L Whiteluc Ampoule Masks - 2 pcs Leaders Clinic Platinum V-Lift Essential Masks - 4 satchets The Saem GEM MIRACLE Black Pearl O2 Bubble Masks - 4 trial packs The Saem GEM MIRACLE Diamond Cutting V 10C Lifting Serum - 1 trial size The Saem GEM MIRACLE Diamond Cutting V Lifting Toner - 1 trial size The Saem GEM MIRACLE Diamond Cutting V Lifting Emulsion - 2 mini size It's Skin Prestige Tonique d'escargot I - 2 mini size It's Skin Prestige Lotion d'escargot I - 1 trial CRYSTAL Body Deodorant Spray And 1 cute note from Joyce ^.^♥
If its your first time hearing about The Saem, view the website HERE. (The Saem pronounced as The 'Sam'. Initially I tot was The Siam. lolx~) This korean cosmetic brand The Saem endorsed by singer and actor Lee Seung Gi is number 1 product among consumers.
The Saem GEM MIRACLE Diamond Cutting V Lifting Toner I was given a 20ml to try on and this toner lasted me only 1 week. To view its original size products, clicky HERE (What nice pictures this site has! SNOWWWW~~~~ ^^) In this toner, it has mini bits of 'diamond' forming a milky way within the bottle. And the diamonds are what seems to be mica. I'm sorry that I couldn't get the ingredient list in English as it seems that there isn't any reviews of GEM MIRACLE when I goggled it. =_=" Anyways, I'm sure mica (or a secondary name) is in the list since its VISIBLE here in the pic. lolx~ As mentioned before (HERE:Loreal white eye cream) that I personally don't like skincare which contains mica because they can't be absorbed by the skin, so it doesn't do any help except for making your skin sparkly under the light, hence I would use it only in the day. But for this time, I use it day & night so as to get optimal results. ^_^ Review of GEM MIRACLE Diamong Cutting V Lifting Toner: It is a soft gel type toner, almost felt like a serum but alittle more watery as it's able to flow smoothly down my hand when I tilt it over. When spread out, kazillions of 'diamonds' were seen sparkling through the toner making my skin look oh so 'expensive' hahax!~ I quite like the effect here! ^^ After the toner gets absorbed, the 'diamonds' aren't that visible anymore. What's left is the slightly firm & moisturised feeling of the skin, and it smells pretty nice too. Because of its gel form, when poured onto a cotton pad, the pad felt rather dry. I had to pour out alot of the content to make sure the pad is drenched with the toner before I start to use it on my skin. After patting the cotton pad on my face for awhile, the pad starts to get dry again. Its difficult to use a cotton pad when the toner is in a gel like form, as it tends to dry up or evaporates faster than a toner that's in watery form.
The Saem GEM MIRACLE Diamond Cutting V 10C Lifting Serum GEM MIRACLE Diamond Cutting V10C Lifting Serum is no 1 top selling in The Saem, want to know why? Watch this video ^^ After this was broadcasted, the Serum was then named as 'Lee Sueng Gi Serum' kekekex~
Due to most of the stuffs are written in Korean, I had to depend on various translators to do some simple write-up of this Best Seller serum! Pls bare with me for the lousy translation! ^.^" Diamonds, the eternal symbol of beauty and cutting-edge nano-technology with MLV skin safe validation active ingredients makes a difference for the optimal gel firming serum. Power lifting formula gives powerful firming effect, restores sagging skin & firms jaw line. It's time to put up the best light and shine brilliantly as the V line is formed. Seriously, I don't know what I'm translating, I felt I'm just writing nonsense... hahhax!~ o(>▽<)o
And here is my Lee Seung Gi serum swatch... hahax~ ^3^ 1 mini pack of this can only allow 2 applications (Day & Night). Hence, 4 packs makes up 8 applications = 4 days of usage only ^^ Review of GEM MIRACLE Diamong Cutting V 10C Lifting Serum: There are as much 'diamonds' in the serum as like in the Lifting toner. This is a thick gel type serum where it doesn't quite flows when I tilt it over. When used, it doesn't felt greasy, easily absorbed to skin and gives a firming feel to my skin. I shall say that, I love the serum the most in compare to the toner & emulsion as this is the only product that gives a greater firming effect when used. The skin felt firmer but has this slight stickiness after-feel. At the same time, it moisturises my skin, doesn't makes my skin flake or feels dry.
The Saem GEM MIRACLE Diamond Cutting V Lifting Emulsion This Lifting Emulsion probably is the only 1 product that doesn't contain mica in it. Review of GEM MIRACLE Diamong Cutting V 10C Lifting Emulsion: This is the least likable item of the 3 as the emulsion felt greasy. The emulsion texture is like any other milky emulsion or lotions. After application, it takes awhile for the skin to absorb. I will usually do some massaging on face so as to assist the emulsion to be absorbed by my skin quickly. After-effect was a shiny greasy look on my skin, but non-sticky feel. I still experience some minor oil bumps at the end of day (this is actually common for my face) when I'm using the above 3 GEM MIRACLE skincare products. Also, I try not to apply this emulsion as much as the serum or toner because of the greasiness, hence this bottle of 20ml emulsion lasted for more than 2 weeks.
The Saem GEM MIRACLE Black Pearl O2 Bubble Masks 1 satchet for 1 usage. The bubble mask like its sisters, also contains mica in it. The mica doesn't bother me since this is a wash-off mask.
While I say "BUBBLES AWAY", infact the bubbles DID NOT go away! The bubbles stayed on even after 15 mins and it even multiplies to even more bubbles. =_= I nearly couldn't breathe because the bubbles start to grew and covers my nostrils. See below pic, NO NOSTRILS! Lolx~
The correct procedure of applying the Bubble mask is something like this: After cleansing, pump mask from bottle onto hand, spread mask over the entire face except the eyes. Black Pearl oxygen-enriched bubbles raises, then massage it till all the bubbles pops and rinse with lukewarm water.
After massaging, it looks like this: Sorry to scare all of you with my scare face ^^" Marks on my face are caused by my itchy hands! Review of GEM MIRACLE Black Pearl O2 Bubble Mask: I followed exactly the application procedures but I find it hard to massage without a little help of water. I tried to massage my bubbled face with dry hands and it doesn't move, because underneath all these bubbles, the skin is dry and tight. I had to wet my hands to do it. Once massaging is done, all the bubbles pops. Then I'll wash off my face with water. After using the masks, I felt there isn't much difference to my skintone. It didn't look brighter, whiter or did it help in terms of anti-oxidation. I had used before several types of bubble masks and some did gives instant radiant to my skin, so I did a comparison between Black Pearl O2 bubble mask and the other bubble masks that I had. After comparison, I feel that what this bubble mask does is, it gives me firmer skin. It also makes me skin alittle smoother but it just doesn't gives me brighter skin, no matter how many times i use. <_<"
Leaders Clinic Platinum V-Lift Essential Mask LEADERS CLINIC CLINIE is a cosmedical brand created and tested by dermatologic specialists of Leaders Skin Clinic, graduates of Seoul National University, using principles of treatments used on dermatology clinics for skin troubles most common to women. LEADERS CLINIC CLINIE that was developed based on dermatologic theories and clinical experiences of the medical staff of Leaders Skin Clinic, is a non-irritating dermatological skin care that prevents skin troubles and promotes safety of the skin through strict laboratory tests of scientific ingredients. Click below pic to enlarge. Review of Leaders Clinic Platinum V-Lift Essential Mask: This mask is comparable to the b.liv mask that I just reviewed. Why I said so is because of the fibre or material used for its mask. Leaders Clinic mask are made of silky cellulose fibre, its good in absorbing serum, and helps in transferring the goodness to the skin and also preventing the serum from evaporating within a short period of time. It is unlike other masks I used which the serum often evaporates pretty fast, some took only 10 mins, leaving a dry mask on my skin before I knew it. Upon putting on V-Lift Essential Mask, my skin felt instantly refreshed. The mask fits nicely onto my face. There are more than enough serum for the mask to be fully soaked inside the package, and also enough for me to pour the remaining out to apply on my neck & arms. After putting on V-Lift Essential Mask for 20 mins, I massage the remaining serum into my skin with dry hands. The serum was absorbed quickly, my skin felt really supple and alittle firm. My laugh lines and wrinkles are not so visible as before. No greasy, irritation, oil-bumps after usage except it gives me a slight sticky after-feel. There's a choice either to rinse off or not after the serum is fully absorbed, because some serum are very rich, I felt it might be alittle too much for my skin to handle, so I will usually do a quick rinse and then proceed on with my daily skincare regimen. Price: Leaders Clinic Masks are sold $2.50 per piece at JoyPharm (Usually sold at more than $4.95 at Guardian & Sephora)
Leaders Clinic I.P.L Whiteluc Ampoule Mask Review of Leaders Clinic I.P.L Whitelux Ampoule Mask: Similar to the V-Lift Essential Mask, this Whitelux Ampoule Mask is also made of the same fibre thus it is as good as the previous mask. The only difference I feel is that this mask gives me a more radiant skin. The results are usually visible once I took off the mask, massage it into my skin and rinse off the excess serum. But the next day, my face will be back to the same old face I always sees it as. I would probably, like the packaging states, need to mask every 2-3 times a week for 1 month (an intensive skin management) so as to see optimal results. For the time being, I'm at least liking the fact that it does make my face look slightly fairer after wash off. And not forgetting that it also makes my skin feels supple and smooth too. ^^ Price: Leaders Clinic Masks are sold $2.50 per piece at JoyPharm (Usually sold at more than $4.95 at Guardian & Sephora)
It's Skin Prestige Tonique d'escargot l & Lotion d'escargot l I'm not doing any review for these 2 products as they are of a mini trial size, probably could only last me 2 days or so. Plus I hadn't got time to use them yet. ^^ If you are curious about the brand It's Skin, clicky HERE to view the website. I would be posting short reviews or comments on this on my twitter once I use it, so if you'd like, follow me MIWITCH@TWITTER.
CRYSTAL Body Deodorant Spray This is given to me for my personal trial only, it is not sold at JoyPharm's website. The original spray looks like this (Image credits to: www.thecrystal.com) Stick: (Image credits to: www.thecrystal.com)
When I heard of CRYSTAL, i immediately thought of the Deodorant stick which I bought last time. I first heard of salt sticks used as deodorant from a friend of mine many years ago. She mentioned it was like the BEST deodorant she ever bought and that the stick can only be bought from Japan, but she didn't told me the brand then. One day, I went Sasa and saw this CRYSTAL deodorant stick, I got excited and bought 2, 1 for my friend and 1 for myself. After using, I really like this stick! Its unscented, non-sticky, non-drying and it maintains good body odour all day. And this time, I got the CRYSTAL Deodorant Spray which Joyce sent to me, to play with! ^^ Thanks joyce! Almost similar to the stick, it is unscented, non-sticky, non-drying (after the water gets absorbed) and prevents me from smelling bad after a long day at work or outdoors. To REALLY test out the deodorants, I usually *ahem* lift arms up and sniff around to check if there's any smell on my body. When I'm using CRYSTAL, i find that my body's almost unscented as well! lolx.. I could still get a tiny bit of soury-sweaty smell if I sniff harder or stick my nose against the skin but hey! unless its your BF, else I don't think people would really get so upclose to your body eh? ^^" Overall, I'm liking this body deodorant spray as much as I like my deodorant stick! Just that the spray is so much easier to use, cos its just... Spray! Wherelse for the stick I have to run it under tap water to wet it first before I apply it at my underarms.
Once again, thanks to Joyce from JoyPharm for providing me the products to try on. I think I'm already looking at myself buying some stuffs from her, especially the masks! ^^ They are so cheap!

Till then! Cheers! (●♡●) Product names written and coloured in turquoise were given by its company to me for trial.
Hi guys! I'm sorry that I had not been able to announce the results earlier as I am very busy with my work and also for every of my off day, I have appointments with friends and what not. Making me rather tired & lazy to come online using my computer. =_=" The rest of the time when I'm alittle more free, I'm actually using my iPhone to surf the web. How I wish I can do everything with a mobile but I guess that would be very difficult as it only has like, 2 buttons? Hard to switch between many apps just to post a blog. lolx~
