I shall blog about the haul from the sample store and BHG last week.
My new found shopping place is BHG Alt. There is only 2 branch in Singapore so far. They are Clementi and Bugis BHG.
I have been crazy with lashes. I have been buying and not using them. I have only so far used my Daiso lashes. Since I have a problem with cutting them. I am scared to cut too much. T^T
Anyway, I bought another new Japanese Brand call the Jumily. This lashes is a Takahashi Maiko (Maichi) Production Brand. I bought the 02: 3 Way Eyes whereby the 2 sets of lashes is different and can create 3 look out of it. For those who do not know who is Maiko Takahashi. She is actually one of the model on Jelly.
She is pretty!~ I have not read Jelly before so I do not know her style of modeling.
This lashes contains 2 different type of lashes. One in more lengthy and the other is more voluminous.
The effect and the instruction for the lashes.
The direction of the usage of the lashes. I can’t really understand since it is in Japanese.
Next, I bought a Beauty Box from The Sample Store. I shall post the photos of the content. I would say quite worth the price but there are some samples that I am unsure of its usage.
First of all, I really think Pearlin for the invite to this workshop. I am really happy to get invited by Vichy again. I am guilty to say after that contest, I haven’t been using Vichy Normaderm Range. Not that the range is not good. Well, I am a beauty junkie so I have just too many other things to use.
I was actually slightly late due to some cropped up with my work. Lucky they only started at 7pm. This is the first time I went together with Pei Wen for an event. She reached earlier than me so she helped me choose my dinner.
I got Ham and Cheese Sandwich. I would say the bread is kinda of thick so it is hard to bite. But sandwich is delicious. The salad is good too but the cheese is better. I am not sure why too.
Sparkling Water was served. Indeed a very healthy dinner. That fits the image of Vichy Skincare.
Vichy believes Health is Beautiful. I do too. Without good health, there is no way your skin can be beautiful.
Some of the powerpoint slides.
I am one of their Normaderm Zero Impectionist Final Contestant last year. Hence, I actually did a lot of reseach on Vichy. You can read the skin analysis that I did last year.
The purpose is the workshop is to promote on the Aqualia Thermal Aqua range and Eau Thermal Spa Water, In addition, they also change the Vichy Normaderm Night cream formulation to suit the Asian skin more. Lastly, Vichy is celebrating their 80th anniversary this year too!~
Brief Introduction of Vichy
Do you know that Vichy is actually a small town in the heart of France. What is so special about this town is they have a special spring and this spring is the main spa water source of all their products. Therefore all their products are made in France.
If you wonder why is their spa water so special? It contains 15 mineral salt and trace element. It is the most mineral concentrated water in France. The main reason that Vichy can only be produce in France is because this water is a “living water” and it cannot be reproduce as the ingredient is so pure and natural. It has soothing efficacy on sensitive skin and allow the skin to reinforced its natural defensive system.
The minerals content and the function of the minerals.
This Vichy Thermal Spa water slightly alkaline. However, it has the ability to neutralise the effect of external aggressors. That’s like amazing as other brands thermal spring water are unable to do it.
The main focus of this workshop is to introduce the Aqualia Thermal Range. This is actually a hydrating range specially cater to dehydrated skin caused by stress, pollution and climate change.
Like all Vichy Products, it also contains their legendary thermal spa water too. It also contains Aquabioryl and Hyaluronic Acid. Aquabioryl can capture and locks water molecules and leaves a smooth texture finish on your skin during and after application. As Hyaluronic Acid, I guess most people are familiar with it. It can penetrate into your skin and protect it from harmful effects. In addition, it also locks water in the skin and create a protective firm on your skin which acts as a barrier against water loss from skin cell.
Products from Aqualia Thermal Range
Do visit Tiphaine’s blog for more info on the Aqualia Thermal Range. My table do not have the full range, therefore I did not test them out.
I actually bought Aqualia Thermal Light Gel after my Normaderm contest. Because seems like my skin became dehydrated due to my indoor and outdoor job then. I love the texture and I would say one jar can really last you a long time. Since I usually alternate my skincare and I still have more than half a jar.
Hence, I will be giving away this to interested readers of my blog who is willing to do a blog post of this Aqualia Thermal Light Gel and post a post entry. Interested Parties can post your comment as the format shown below:

Aqualia Thermal Eye Roll On. This is to be used under your eyes.
It is a transparent liquid texture that is easily absorbed by the eyes. I hope the photos are clear enough bec after it was “roll” on Pei Wen’s hands, It disappeared leaving the skin hydrated.
After the presentation, it is masking time.
Pearlin with the paper mask + Vichy Thermal Water
Suddenly she decided that she should hide because we will put her photos in the blog.
The staff helping us to apply the mask on our face.
I am relatively proud that this is one of my mask method I did for the contest last year. Hence, I decided to link it with this blog post again.
However when I re-watch this video that I made last year, I just can’t stop wondering how come my expression looks kinda of weird. But anyway, I am proud that this method that I did last year was used in this workshop! No doubt this method is inspire by Saeki Chizu while I was reading her book at that time. But I am happy that it works very well with Vichy Thermal Water.
It’s me with the mask. You can also used it with your makeup on.
Ahh… Good Sister release from the 7th month!~
Pei Wen also doing the mask with me. But she warned me not to put her photos of her. Well, I did not show her face anyway.
Only our whole row apply the sheet mask~
After the mask, not to forget some cakes for all of us.

1. Vichy Thermal Spa Water
The mask is actually light blue but seems like the camera unable to take the blue tone. It has a pleasant smell and not oily.
I really enjoyed this workshop. I learned a lot more on Vichy’s other range. Previously I have tried their Normaderm range. I can’t wait to try the goodies given in the press pack!~
Rosebullet is one of my favourite Japanese Brand. She is feminine and sexy, yet strong and independent. She revels in freedom, and she loves to experiment. She is adventurous and she dares to be different. She is as soft as a rose petal, yet tough as a bullet. She may be you.
They are having an exclusive styling session on the 19th and 20th of August! Interested? Feel free to call them at 62355756 to make an advanced booking for your preferred time slot. The timing will be 12pm to 8pm at Rosebullet Wisma. Do note that each session lasts from 40 minutes to 1 hour and also the last time slot is 8pm.
In addition, you can visit their blog and facebook group for more future updates of the latest release and events.
I have been super hardworking blogging today. This is my 3rd entry for the day!~
I am relatively out of ideas to blog and stuck with a lot of beauty product to start using. You can just name it Kose, Kanebo, Shiseido, Naruko and many many small accumulative haul from Watson. I know most of my beauty kaki will ask me to do a giveaway to clear the items. However, I am not willing to bear the postage and the shipping. Since most of my items are new ones and my purpose of buying are usually to review them not to give away.
Hence, I decided to start a project for me to finish using my product brand by brand. For a start, I will start from Naruko because I am almost a crazy fan of niu er that I almost got all his Naruko line and a few of his ampm products. Hence, this post will mark the start of Project Naruko. I am so going to take a happy family photo of them soon. But I so far have only stated using their gelly mask and their facial wash. In addition to that, I need to do a review post for Naruko Raw Job’s Tears Whitening serum by this week. Of course, I will post their initial review and the final review when I finished them. I have to specially thanks Naruko Singapore for these 2 items.
I am also planning to to do a The “Finished” Project too whereby I will write an overall review on the products I have used so far. There are so many product out there that people did not know it existed and then went out of Singapore and the shelves eventually.
Okay. Blogging a super late entry which I am supposed to blog about it weeks ago. I actually took all the photos. I am just a bit lazy and busy to edit them.
If you have read my previous entry about Kanebo Sales. You wouldn’t have or want to miss it. The sales is crazy and this is what I call sales. Lunasol palette was like 50% cheaper. I have been wanting to own one but because of my frequent sales purchase. I really accumulate too many to buy them off shelves, hence this sales is a perfect excuse for me to buy them.
By the time we reached, there is already a small crowd there. Can u imagine that I reach at 11 plus only?
Introducing my new beauty kaki, Patricia!~ (Left) and me on the right. We still got the time the cam whore sia…
Our combined haul. Don’t be mistaken, Patricia only buy a few. Most of them are mine!~
These are her small haul. She really control her buying since she is a student so she got more budget control problem than me.
My 2 bags of haul from the Kanebo sales. I do admit a bit intimidating to a lot of people. But my leechie friend bought a lot more than me. My haul look big as I bought 2 bundle of Kanebo Skincare from Impress and Blanchir Superior as I wanted to try their skincare too.
My humble haul. Not that much right? I told u all le ma. I did exercise small budget control.
I got an extra Lunasol item on the extreme right that I missed out from the Lunasol group. I bought 2 eyeshadow palette and 1 eyeliner from Coffret D’or
In case you don’t know, they have left Singapore already. Hence, the last collection that they launched is the Summer 2010 collection. (Read more from: Haru’s Blog)
Jewelcious Eyes (02: Pink Topaz and 04: Amber Beige)
Coffret D’or full keep gel liner (BK-30)
I initially did wanted to get the C Curve palettes. However, I find their shade not to my liking. I put them back before I went to pay.
My Kate Haul. I bought slightly more for this because they are really much cheaper. They are even cheaper than Watson sales too.
KATE Reflect Mirror Eyeshadow
Limited edition Diamond Cut Eyes Bk 2 – Dark Diamond
Magical Long Mascara N and Volume Gel Mascara
Brown Collection (BR-1 and BR-4)
Covering Concealer for Under Eyes
Lunasol Aurorized Eyes
I bought 3 palette but only after I went home, I discover that I bought 2 of the same colour. I think the lady gave me the wrong colour.
Nail Polish (EX-26). It freaking cost S$8 only, how can I miss it?
Next Blanchir Superior skincare. I guess skincare is something I will always like to try.
The Impress set is really very pretty. I really love the white bag. It is actually more of a toilette bag.
See the small details!~ The area is very well made.
The content of the Impress set
I like the travel size. Since I just want to try this range, hence I do not want it to be full sized.
