Even though I am really packed with studies, assignment and mid terms for last month, I still manage to do some minor shopping. Just finished my last report for this term’s module, so I decided to blog a haul entry first as it take lesser time.
Let’s just start from my recent haul from Japalang.
Great Sales leh~ Up to 90% Sales!!
This is my overview of the items that I buy there.
I discovered I got 2 items not in the photo. There are the items.
K Palette eyeliner and eyebrow liner at S$14 and S$17.
Details of the eyebrow liner. This liner consist of a powder tube and the liquid liner.
Swatches of the eyebrow liner~
Details of the liquid eyeliner. I specially chose a brown because saw a few blogger using this colour, so I decided to try brown colour.
The brush tip is super thin and I tried it on my eyes, it is easy for beginner like me to draw a nice liner.
Next, I bought the 2 Gransebo blusher – 04 (S$10 for 2).
It has a nice frosty pink shade. I think it is too light for me but that’s the only shade around and I think this shade may also look nice on me.
I have unboxed the mask so what is left is just the mask itself. The mask is buy 1 get 1 free at S$10 which is very worth it and not to forget, for a kitty fan like me, this is something not to be missed.
Naruko items. I actually bought 4 from the sales. 1 Naruko Tea Tree toner (S$16), 1 Tea Tree Treatment serum (S$18), 1 Celestial White Moss (S$21), 1 ampm washing powder. Trust me, they are really great and worthy products.
The lucky draw Gachapon~
I only got 2 paper soap and 1 kitty hair tie which u can see from the group photo. The body scrub was a complementary door gift from them.
You can see my long ass story of the sales here!~ I decided to separate the haul post as I really am tired and need to sleep now, if not I will not wake up for my bridging lesson tomorrow.
I am sorry that I haven’t been really blogging about my skincare. To be exact, I haven’t been even blogging about anything that I should be. There has been a few things keeping me busy. Other than my day work, my part time degree took up almost half of my remaining time. A small friction went to watching Running Man (My new addicted variety programme), housework (all the washing and cleaning) and sleep. But that does not stop me from shopping around.
Sometimes I really feel sick to even open my computer after my work. I have actually been taking photos and drafting my blog post. I got more that 10 post that is half done. I got a few more draft of the event I went this few months. Not to forget my honeymoon post that I only manage to finish part 1 only. I have been procrastinating all my assignment to an extend that I am rushing it within 3 days before the submission date. (Okay, this is my bad)
I decided to post something (should be doing my assignment now because there are still 1 more pending) because I need a place to release everything that I have bear this week. I did something I was supposed to do morally and this thing that I am supposed to do cause some trouble for my husband and even myself. I do not blame anyone for anything that I did but sometimes some things is out of your control. Despite not agreeing on what my close friend did, I still hope for the best for her. I did so too last year this time too but some thing still happen even though some promises were made due happening previously too.
I am seriously disgusted by this whole joke. I am not angry, seriously. Why should I be angry? If my close friend don’t mind about all these and value herself, why should I? The fact I felt heart pain for all the thing she suffered due to this same problem. I always wonder is it me who is cold-hearted or my friend who is soft-hearted but I can’t seems to agree to what she is doing. I respect her decision but I still decided to massage her my feeling and thinking with this thing. We what-app-ed and I told her to think about her problem. I do not know if she will think about it but I did my part and I told her I will never support her openly in facebook as I seriously find myself hilarious in this whole thing.
But that wasn’t the only thing to happen this week, I trip on my work site due to my negligence and sprain my foot. Though is was not something serious but this is my 3rd time tripping this year. I must be more careful ya~
I went to Japalang Sales last week too but trust me, I really did something really wrong and I was punished somehow for being cheapo and stupid.
I didn’t took a photo of my hauls yet so I shall just describe what I bought. I bought 2 hello kitty mask (Buy 1 get 1 at S$10), 2 Gransebo blusher – 04 (S$10 for 2), 1 Naruko Tea Tree toner (S$16), 1 Tea Tree Treatment serum (S$18), 1 Celestial White Moss (S$21), 1 ampm washing powder, 2 3D mask for S$3.
I wasn’t having good luck so only won some paper soap and a hello kitty hair tie.
I mentioned it earlier that I got punishment right. Firstly, my bag was locked because the Japalang staff forgot to cut the cable tie and I did not notice too until I was on cab. Lucky, my wallet was out since I was paying for the haul. Secondly because I was late for my lesson, I was in a hurry mode and I left my handphone on the cab, lucky the cab returned it to me so I shall openly thank this uncle. His car plate is SHA 4908 E. You may think that I am crazy for thanking someone just for returning an phone. I have lost my phone 3 times prior to this time near miss. None returned to me. To me, losing my phone is as bad as losing my wallet. Photos are irreplaceable and I really quite lazy to back them up.
That why after the whole hoo-ha, I discovered all because my cheapo-ness, I did not save much money and I spend more in the end. This means next time if the sales is at any place that is hard to access, I shall give it a miss. This is the lesson learn and this reminds me of this idioms “得不偿失”
Okay, I always follow very closely to my beauty idol lao niu (老牛) news till a stalking extent. But I really think that he is super knowledgeable in terms of beauty. Okay, he sucks at makeup and he knows it too. In this episode of University, niu er disclosed the secret of hydrating, acne and whitening. In part 1 of the video, he did mentioned that the 3 golden rules to good skin is cleansing, hydrating and sun protection. Have you done yours? If not do take about 1 hour to see the videos.

Jealous or not? Haha. I super excited about being sponsored by Naruko Singapore for trying out the latest 2 new range. One is from the Raw Jobs Tears and the other one is the Tea Tree Oil Out Series. Do not mix up with Niaouli & Tea Tree, they are from different range. Niaouli & Tea Tree is the older range of the product. I am currently using their toner, moisturiser and the gelly before replace the Niaouli & Tea Tree Gelly with Tea Tree Oil Out Series Gelly.
PS: It is really call Gelly, I did not mispell it!~
This review will be only on the Raw Job’s Tears Serum. I will post the Tea Tree Gelly soon.
So what is so special about Raw Jobs Tears?
If Jobs Tears is white rice, then Raw Jobs Tears is brown rice (white rice + wheat bran). It has antioxidants as it contains wheat bran. According to the official website, it contains more Amino Acid, Vitamin c and minerial as compared to the regular Jobs Tears.
You can understand more in the picture taken from Naruko Singapore website below:
If you are lazy to read, just click below and watch the intro done by niu er below:
I would say this time the packaging is slightly more colourful. It has a simple oriental feel in the box and the bottle
You do not need to worry that your beauty product packing will be environmental unfriendly. Bec the inner box can be used as small storage box
It looks exactly the same as the box except that it is much bigger. I personally love the dark red oriental look for this collection. The older generation has a more white and simple look.
Support the original!~ I have to be honest that most of my Naruko Products are bought from the Taiwan Naruko ages back when Singapore do not have Naruko or maybe friends going Taiwan and ask them to help me bring back a few. But now I no longer need to do this. I can now buy them directly from Singapore!~

Review Video tested on my skin.
PS: I did do a review video on my face but unfortunately the video was very blur so I decided to use this video instead.
I will usually use my warmth to enhance the absorbence of the serum
I ♥ this serum very much. Strongly recommend for daily usage.
I have been a very loyal niu er fans. When I saw this series from nv ren wo zui da. I tell myself I must get it in Singapore. Do you know 1000kg of raw jobs tears can only extract 1kg of Raw Jobs Tears Serum. This serum costs only S$28.90.
The texture of this serum is watery and not diluted. It can really be absorbed into your skin immediately. The colour is white translucent serum but once you apply and blend to your skin, it will become transparent. You do not have to worry about white cast. I would advise to use 3 – 4 pumps for face with neck application. No point you have a nice face but an aging neck right? I do find that once your apply it fully on your skin, excess just rub betweem both hands and press in the serum with your palm and fingers.
Due to my outdoor and indoor working environment, my skin condition is rather bad. I have pigmentation problem as well as oily skin with large pores. It doesn’t work instantly but I do feel my skin brighter but not instantly whiter. I am never someone who love fair skin but I do like to glow with my skin. My skin tone does not feel “dirty” due to sun exposure damage from my job. Maybe it is because the particles of this serum is smaller, I find that my skin feels much hydrated after the first application.
In addition, i discover that my pimple scar become less obvious after application 2 – 3 application. I am relatively surprise by the lightening effect as this range does not focus on doing that. Not to forget that my skin is more hydrated and it really does “resets” my skin.
However, I am slightly disappointed that there is no scent to this serum. I have used their other range of products and trust me all their scent smell super natural and relaxing. It feels like doing aromatherapy while applying them. I am not so sure is it only the serum on the whole raw jobs tears range does not have scent.
On the whole this serum works very well on my skin. After a week of using, I do see more brighter and hydrated complexion. Not to forget it even out my skintone. If they could make a similar scent with the older job’s tears range, this product will be perfect in my rating. As such, I decided to give it a rating of 9.5/10.

I am so happy that I decided to post this blog entry despite the fact I should be studying now. But I am so excited when I saw this when I am back from work. The Naruko package is here!~ I will be using it after National Day which is also after my exams so I shall show one small photo of the things given to me!~
Items from left to right: Translucent skin radiance cotton, Raw Job’s Tears Serum and Tea Tree Oil Out Night Gelly.
I am super excited with these 2 products because Raw Job’s Tears series supposed to work much much better than normal Job’s Tears. Not to forget, I love all the Naruko Gelly. I am not being bias but I love all of them. So that’s all for today, really need to study.
