VDL CC Cream

I have no suckered into BB or CC cream marketing. I mean all of them are just face product to me. Whatever works for me, I will love.

This sounds promising as it said that it contains the technology to balance pale or dark skin tone for a flawless radiation and clear transparency. It fights off perspiration and oil for a lasting look. It also has a SPF of 25.

First thing first, this is way too light for me. My face just looks so white using this. The coverage is alright, but it is not light. You have to really blend for it to look natural. Oil control wise is alright, and I did use this to go to gym, and it stays put. So really it is just the shade that doesn’t match me.

This is why samples are the best thing ever brought onto the table. I think everyone should be given samples before they commit to buying the full size product. If you go huh? Guess you are not from Asia. We envy you people who can return back product.

October Black Box

I heard of Black Box a long time ago, and I signed up for it. But I don’t really know how it worked. Cause some people actually managed to get this free box, and I wanted one too. Last month they emailed us saying how their website has change and you can ballot for a free box. You can secure a free box just by paying for $6 shipping. They only had 500 boxes for that.

I wasn’t very interested in the October box when I saw the participating brands. So I wouldn’t pay $6 for it. But I did try to ballot for it. I did not know I was successful as all I did was click the link and put my email address and they told me I am eligible for balloting. Then I had to log in but I did not know my password and I’m just lazy to check my email.

Anyway there was another email saying everything was sold out and 1500 boxes were successfully given out to the winners. A few days later I got an email saying my box will be sent to me between a certain time. It was like winning a lottery. How awesome!

So this is the box. Sorry for the longwinded story, but that’s practically how Black Box work. If you’re in Singapore, just sign up, try your luck. The next one is for December box, but the balloting has not start? I am not sure. I only got the email for securing the box.
So far, all I did was do a short survey online after I got the box to win full-sized products. That’s it. They never ask you to do anything, not even ask you to refer to friends. But good things must be shared right? And it’s unisex, so it’s really for everyone. Then again it’s free. You can always pass it to anyone of you don’t like it.

So I received a card with the description of the product like where to buy, how to use and also some discount coupons.
Lovemore Snailmucin Repairing Eye Patch.

VDL CC Cream has SPF 25. Have not try this yet, but it’s great to have for upcoming mini vacations.

Bifesta Cleansing Lotion (sebum) is a really cool product. It’s a makeup remover and cleanser at the same time. You don’t need to wash your face after using this. Just rinse it if you want. A product after my own heart. The samples come with cotton pads, but I think the full size is just the lotion.

Darlie Enamel Protect Toothpaste who doesn’t love free toothpaste? It’s a travel size which probably cost $2 if you buy from Watsons.

Zappy Sampler Pack now this is cool.

Look at that, it’s all in wipes form and it has different type of purpose. I like the sunscreen one. How cool to use sunscreen with a wipe. It’s just so easy and unique. Plus it’s SPF50. I also like the insect repellent and well everything. Cause it’s all really useful to me. Per pack will cost around $2 – $5.50 and different type of wipes will contain different quantity. But I really think Zappy is really neat. Love it. Great to have for traveling or on the go.

Lastly, I got Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Oil which is a multi-purpose dry oil. I haven’t have this so it’s nice to get it. It can be use for the face, body or hair. This is shimmery which I think will be nice to use for parties while keeping your skin moisturized. I have an idea, put it all over your body and you can be the Cullen for Halloween, even though it’s over but I only think of it. Anyway, I like to put this at the ends of my hair to give them an extra sparkle. It doesn’t has a scent or anything though.

So ya that’s it for my free Black Box.

VDL beauty moisturizer

I have to tell this story so bare with me. I was walking around Orchard with a friend and we crossed over to Tangs to collect some LancĂ´me samples. Orchard underground really scare me especially on weekends. There were just too many passerby and too many people giving out flyers. But I feel bad for them and will always take the flyers given out. So I got this VDL flyer and dump it in my bag.

At the end of the underground, another girl was giving out the same flyer. Since I already took one, I don’t feel the need to have another. I guess cause everyone ignored her, she said, “its a moisturizer.” And we were just surprised and I asked my friend if she wanted one. We really had no shame, turned back a couple steps to collect it. The girl gave me one too. So then I have two.

It’s a really good sample packaging/flyer/information/marketing. I really am impressed. It’s such a neat way to get people to know the brand. Include a little sample and everyone is happy. The problem is, if they never tell us, we wont know there is a sample. It’s our world, we been thought that there is no such thing as a free lunch. Even people are wary about those distributors giving out free tissue. I guess that’s why company like Kiehl’s are doing the try before you buy. They are trying to be awesome, which they are, and be different.

Anyway the moral of the story, don’t ignore the distributors, take those flyers! You never know what you may get. 😀

So the product is beauty moisturizer with prune which is super hydrating. Beauty moisturizer cream treats sign of aging and fortifies the skin’s natural moisture barrier, maximizing moisture-retention capacity for healthy, soft results. I don’t know know why it states to be a cream, when its a gel like substance. I used this twice, once on a normal day, and once when my skin feels really dry.

I kind of like this when my skin is dry. It really helps to moisture it. It goes on gentle and takes a second to dry. I don’t feel the dryness anymore. On the normal day, it’s too much for me. It makes my face looks oily. It doesn’t dry as fast too. So I conclude that this product is probably best for dry to normal skin.

The back of the flyer/sample is filled with Korean words, so I am guessing its a Korean brand. I guess you can check out VDL from the website here.
