[REVIEW] Bioderma Sensibio H2O


Its been awhile since I posted, and I'm back with a product emptied and ready to be reviewed. Its the Bioderma Sensibio H2O Micelle Solution for Sensitive Skin, and its the 500ml red bottle. I dived right into the largest size when I ran out of my previous makeup remover because I heard some good reviews about this, and it was more worth it in this size ($49 or $39, at Guardian). I would consider this an impulse buy because I was just shopping around and I was like "I think I heard that this was good?" so I bought it lol. I don't know how long I have used it for, but I reckon its about 3 months.

Initially, I didn't like it as I felt like it took like 5 cotton pads to remove the makeup off my entire face. Its quite a lot, comparing to the 3 cotton pads per face when I was using Bifesta. (I minded the amount of cotton pads used because it measures the amount of friction put onto your face just to remove makeup) I thought it was just very average makeup remover. But.. I came to love it when it was down to half the bottle. I did more research on this product (come on, what happened to the good stuff people said about it) and found it to be more suited for me, as a cleanser. I'm not even sure if I'm using it the correct way but I wipe my face with this in place of my usual foam cleanser every morning, and it helps soothe my acne, a lot. I rinse it off with water though it is not required, because I felt that it has this weird sticky feeling afterwards, or too dry and smooth afterwards. At night, I use it to remove my makeup, then a foam cleanser (Etude House AC Clinic Foam Cleanser, pretty drying but good for acne) and then to my skincare, which is currently just aloe vera gel lol. No thanks to the Chinese New Year feasting that broke me out even more recently :( Because of this routine, it kept my acne under control and I do see some improvement. I'll probably use it just as a face makeup remover but for my eye area, I still need the oil removers to minimise friction that cotton pads do, because I realised that my eye area is getting really dry from Bioderma :( Overall, I recommend this product if you are acne-prone, and have combination skin. I believe there's the blue one for hydration and green one for sebum care, but I prefer this one for my skin type.

At first, I was like "I'm never gonna repurchase this" but now, I definitely am, and I'm glad to have bought it on impulse :P

But! Before getting a second bottle, I'm gonna try out some cleansing oils that I recently acquired, first :P Left to right: MUJI Cleansing Oil, Shu Uemura Cleansing Oils, and Holika Holika Soda Pore Cleansing BB Deep Cleansing Oil. I am down to the last drops of Shu Uemura ones, and it feels soooo comfortable removing makeup with these. But we'll see how the others fare, haha.

Thanks for reading!

[SAMPLE REVIEW] Skinfood Salmon Eye Cream

Hi! I got this a sachet of Skinfood's Salmon Eye Cream with some Korean cosmetics, and only recently I felt like trying it :P

I know right! Salmon?! On your skin?! Well, that's Skinfood for you. Salmon is not as bad as.. CREAMY CHEESE MASK! Well, I like cheese in my food but not on my face. *squirms*

It does not smell one bit like salmon. Smells a lot like jasmine flowers, A LOT!!! An overly strong smell of jasmine, which is weird since salmon is used instead. *50 points deducted*

It's a white cream, which I feel is oily and fatty, and only a little is required. This sachet lasted me for 5 times, for both eyes! Not the best texture for an eye brightening cream. I believe this is gonna be bad for people with oily or problematic skin and may not be able to withstand the richness of this eye cream.

Stays really oily for at least 10 minutes, felt like the absorption was reeeaaalllyyy slow. Besides, I've used it for 5 times and there are no significant changes. No brighteni…

[HAUL] Holika Holika!

The first branch of Holika Holika opened its doors in Singapore @ Wisma Atria today! Supposedly at 12, but when I reached there, they were still drilling and hanging stuff, and said to be back in 30 mins.

A huge poster of its ambassador at the side of its shop, CN Blue!!!!!!! Mysterious Magic Cosmetics~ (and endorsed by guys and a cat.. Hmm mysterious enough)

Before it was open! Yet to pull down its blinds~ It's a shop tucked at the corner, beside an escalator. Near Cotton On!
Couldn't get a nice picture of its sign! But you can see a bit of its interior, which is a lavender colour and has nice shelves! It goes with a mystical or magical theme :)

My mini haul from the store! VERY DE EX PLS The highly raved about egg soap @ $20.00 for 2 eggs Make-up Starter primer @ $2.50 per piece Wonder Drawing Eyeliner Auto Stick @ $10.00 Enamel Magicara Long and Curling FREE hehehe

Its a small tube since its free! But its pretty good! There's fibre in it and the brush is kinda special…

Outing to Farmart


Met Angie for a bonding day awhile ago. Supposingly we went to the River Safari because Angie had free tix, but we ended up at Farmart because the tix were expired. The trip to Farmart totally savaged the day!

The place is easily accessible by taking a shuttle bus ($1 each way) that comes every 30 mins, opposite Choa Chu Kang Lot 1. It was an eye-opener for me. It felt like Malaysia. Lol.

There was a pet food store cum pet hotel and I bought some food (vitakraft sticks & fish fillets) for my favourite neighbourhood cats. The pricing is slightly cheaper than town prices so I bought a bigger pack. The place mainly is a farm and food place, as online articles mentioned that they sell cheaper seafood but the stalls were mostly closed that day. There were also a bird shop and prawning area. The farm.. is really interesting.

There were super tamed parrots (or mini parrots lol)
Stacked tortoises
Creepy toads
Sleepy birds
We bought the feed while we were there. The $5 set was totally …
