TFS Orchid Sensual Body Cleanser

This is quite a nice flowery cleanser. It’s a light scent that doesn’t extend out of the shower. But it’s still quite good. I enjoy using it but I wouldn’t buy a full size of this. It’s a waste of cleanser I feel. Cause it’s rather liquid like. So a lot will be used up fast. 


First Impression: Paraffin Nutrition Nail Pack 

This is such a cute item. But it’s just so troublesome to apply. Cause you have to one by one fit on the fingers. Once you have it on, you can hardly do much. Cause the wrap is wet inside out. So that’s it. For a few minutes, you will be helpless. I also do not like that this is quite sticky. I wouldn’t recommend this to anyone. 

Faceit Power Perfection BB Cream

This is my shade. It blends in so perfectly that I can’t tell if the bb cream stayed put or has disappear. Of course this is quite a dewy so it’s easy to tell if it’s on my skin. It’s quite sad that this is for dry skin. If not it will be nice to have something that matches my skin tone perfectly. Plus this has a SPF 37 so it’s quite a high one. I guess it is too bad that my skin is oily. 

Faceit Primer UV Veil

This is a slightly pink primer. But of course it blends in to clear. It’s quite moisturing which is nice. But it sort of make my makeup look heavy. And after about 3 hours my face especially around the nose area started to get oily. So this is better for anyone with dry skin. It’s nice though cause it has SPF. I just wouldn’t buy this. 

First Impression: Chia Seed Fresh Cleansing Foam

I find that this doesn’t foam up as much as I hope it would. So it doesn’t do such a good job in cleansing my face. I still have a lot of residue on my lids. The actual product is probably better. But given this, 1ml, I wasn’t impressed. So this is a no for me. 

TFS Orchid Sensual Body Lotion

This is a very watery lotion. It’s easy to apply. Slightly sticky and takes awhile to be alright. It has a nice orchid scent. I like the scent. But it’s just takes awhile to be non sticky. So that’s the downside. 

Facial Mask Brush

Bought this for $3.90 if I’m not wrong. I just wanted a brush to apply my face mask. It’s really quite a game changer. Not only my fingers will be clean from the goo, the application is rather smooth and even. I think that’s the best thing about using this. 

The brush is a synthetic fiber that is soft. It’s not too big and not too small. It is a good size for my face. It makes application of mask much faster. It’s easy to clean the brush too. 

What’s In My Shower

They say that 80% of people in Singapore stay in HDB (public housing). My mom’s house is under the old layout which only has 1 bathroom. Basically it is 2. One for shower, the other is the toilet. There are 5 of us trying to use the shower daily. Thankfully, we have different schedule, so we never have to fight for the shower. We also have 4 “shelf” area where we put the shampoo and soap on. And 1 shelf is specially for me. While the rest sort of share shower gel and shampoo, I tend to have my own. The rest of the shelves consist of 1) shampoo (general, bro, sis), shower gel, 2) facial wash (mom, sis, bro), eczema soap, conditioner and 3) shower cap, mini toiletries, etc.

When it comes to my shelf, I have 9 item squeeze into the tiny space. Plus the conditioner which I usually share with my sis therefore it wont be on my shelf. Here are the item I am using at the moment.
I am in between shampoos. I am usually either using Avalon Organics thickening shampoo or Naturvital hair loss shampoo. Or maybe some Klorane. So it really depend. 

2. Clarifying shampoo

I’ve been using this Avalon Organics Clarifying Lemon Shampoo for a while, and I really mean a while. I just cant seem to finish this up. I hardly use this as I don’t think this is as good. I try to use this once a week, but will be more if I took a late shower, cause I have no confidence in my oily hair. So this is just good for a day.

3. Hair mask/treatment
I tend to use more hair mask than conditioner. It is much thicker and I don’t have to use as much.

I like this. It’s thick and a little is all you need to make your hair extra smooth. I used it once and after for 3 days straight I don’t use any conditioner. My hair is still very smooth. I was so impressed. In term of strengthening, well I’m not really sure how good it is. But it’s really nice for tangle free hair for days. It’s also not that expensive.

I don’t like the shampoo and conditioner as much. Cause you really have to use a lot of it. But this one is much better.

4. Shower gel

I am not so fussy when it comes to shower gel, but I do love fruity scented shower gel. About 70% of the time, I am using TBS or Sephora. This time I have the mango creamy body wash from Sephora. This smells so much like mango pudding. It’s very creamy and foam up nicely. It doesn’t give crazy foam, but it’s nice on the body. It’s moisturising and doesn’t leave your skin feeling dry. I really like it. 

5. Body scrub

This is the honey body scrub. I just cant get over the scent of TBS honey. its just so sweet and lovely. I really do love most of the scents from TBS and I just cant get over them. Bought this on sale, if not I will prefer to use the squeeze tube one which is for daily use. The tub one is to be used once or twice a week only as it is more abrasive. 

6. Face wash

I’m not sure if I like this. It is quite watery. It has this scent that I can’t describe but it just feels organic and westernise herbal. Yea it doesn’t make sense, but that is that. I am not sure if this is the reason pimple kept popping out. In term of cleansing, this do great. It feels like it strip off moisture, yet it doesn’t leave your skin dry. 

7. Facial scrub

This is TheFaceShop Flebeaute White Crystal Diamond Peeling. It’s not exactly a facial scrub, but I guess you can consider it as one. You can use it on a dry face or a wet one. It is so lovely on the face regardless. It foam up well. So on dry face, you use this in circular motion for about 1 minute, then you rinse it. It feels good on the face. And after you rinse off, your fave just feels super clean. With a wet face, this is less abrasive. But still function he same. 

8. Hygiene wash

I use the travel size one. Especially for the brand Lactacyd, I will buy the 60ml at $2 cause ml by ml comparing to the full size, this is much cheaper. I pretty much tried all the different variants they have, and I like the original best. I am not so choosy on the brand I use. But not everything works well for me. The yellow bottle of Lactacyd is a no for me. 

9. Shaver

I will have a razor in the shower. This will be for my legs. I shave like every 2-3days. This one is the 3 blades one. The refills are not as expensive as the 4 or 5 blades. But I buy them on sale anyway. I know you are suppose to throw away the blade after like a few uses, but I will only throw it away if I feel that it’s no longer sharp. And that is a personal feel. But ya, I prefer guy shaver as they are slightly cheaper. And I use conditioner to lather up, so no problem there. 

So those are the things I usually have in my bathroom. Different brand, but same function. I wish we can have bath tubs in HDB. I want to use Lush bombs so badly. Oh well, we can’t have everything. 

The Therapy anti-aging moisturing cream

This is a thick but really easy to blend in. It’s absorb into the skin quite fast. The only thing I have to say about this is that it is too moisturizing for me. That is why I am quite afraid of anti aging products. Anyway, this moisturizer leaves me quite oily in the morning. I use it only at night and wakes up with an oily face. Oh well, not a fan. 


Clean Face Blemish Zero Clinic Solution

A gel like moisturiser. I do like gel like product but for some reason this feels weird. It is more like a silicon primer than a moisturiser. Doesn’t really help much with blemishes. I still got them. So it is quite bad. Not a big fan of it. Lucky is is just a sample.
