Unlike - JuJu aquamoist


I have been trying my heart and soul out to like this JuJu Aquamoist series. This is just one of the product from JuJu Aquamoist that I try my best to like. oh no.. it didn't work out.

Let me present you another product that didn't work out for me.

 The serum...

I really tried. I read and reread the instruction and still cannot get it work for me.

 Reason for unlike:
1. It does not suit my skin. it leaves a very sticky feeling to my skin, no matter how thinly i spread it, before or after toner, morning or evening. The stickiness on my skin really irritates me. S tried so hard to attach my eye shield with tapes at night and he complain ' your face is so sticky and I can't attach the tapes on it' that's how bad it is
2. It does not work even it is in winter. Lets suppose that it moisturizes skin. So, if it is a gel moisturizer I suppose it works in summer better than winter? oh no.. get your blot paper out if you want to use this. I try to use this even in a UK summer weather (nice and dry and not hot at all) still. it just stick. Even in winter, it still sticks
3. Why not use it as gel mask? or apply another layer of moisturizer? i tried. still doesn't work. I don't want to feel like thousands of bees stick to my face if I use it as gel mask. 

So verdict:

stay away from it.

If you still want it, you are welcome to get it from me. I'm selling this for USD $5. Maximum use : 10 times (finger lightly dip in it)

Surviving British Summer - laneige power essential skin ex rules

 This summer is driving my absolutely up the wall. I am barely surviving because of the heat. i know it is nothing compare to Hong Kong, but still, my skin went riot and I need to change my routine completely.

I'll split this summer special skincare review bits by bits, I'll write a specific product I tried this summer (since the heatwave started) and review them.

First.. is my saviour.. without this. My skin will give me bums, pimples, etc. 

Laneige Power Essential Skin EX

What's this?
It is difficult to explain. I was given this my a friend and later pruchase it for a different purpose. My friend gave this when I asked her to CP me a toner. I bought this to use as a toner mask. But this summer, I am using this as a moisturiser. Can I just say this is multi-purpose then?

I paid around $160 HKD, which is £13.5/$20USD
Sasa.com selling this for $149.00, which is $19 USD
Yesstyle.com is selling this including International mail (to anywhere in the world) for USD $49.00

How to use:
put some on a cotton and whip your face with it.
Alternatively, buy some dry paper mask and soak the toner up and have a toner mask in the morning :)

My verdict:
As a toner mask, it works. i love the smell and the feel, and my face feels refreshing. It is rather cheap and doesn't hurt the bank. i started using this as a toner mask since 2007, when I was really poor and I can only afford toner mask (there's no My beauty diary masks available then..)

I only discover this as a moisturiser this summer because nothing works on me anymore. Anything I put on which is vaguely called 'moisturiser' (you name it... JuJu moisturising gel, Boots Vanishing Cream..) they just become oil and stick on my skin.. and S had lots of problem to put the eye shield on for me at night because my face is soo oily that the tapes does not stick.

So I need to seek another way to moisturize and thought I'll just put some 'thicker' texture toner  as moisturizer and hope the best. And this works.. skin immediately stop having red spots, pimples etc

Laneige is my summer saviour for now. I run out of IPSA metabolizer but don't want to spend money to haul IPSA to UK ($80 USDDDDDDD)... so I'm digging out everything I had and try again..

Will talk about the other products that work next post....

Halo girls... back from the surgery

do you miss me?

Hiya, I'm back!!! I have had some good rest throughout the week, including my mom and bro calling me to make sure i stay off internet. If you are on twitter you know that I've been twitting even 5 mins after the op. but hey, I can see and now has 20/20 vision.

I want to blog about my experience before i forgot. If you ever think about geting laser surgery you can consider after my own experience

I arrived at the clinic with the football match, France vs South Africa on. I was the first one that afternoon so the nurses all came out watching the match. We had a bit of chat so everything went smoothly.

 I won't bore you the details how they zap me 8 times but everything went ok, and it was painless. The aftermath is I ended up with swollen eyes and need to wear eyeshield for 2 weeks. Please stop laughing after you look at this pic.

My first night after surgery. Very swollen eyes (is lack of sleep) and with eye shield to prevent me from rubbing my eyes at night (yes, is Hello Kitty Pyjamas)

That's me next day up and ready to for my check-up. Top from Bread and butter and my green leggings from Taobao hehe

The worst thing that no one talks about are the eyedrops. This is what I got after a week, my left eye is a bit inflamed so I got given more eye drops

And that's me after 1 week. Still wearing my sunglasses, and I had too much time so everything I wore there comes from the internet which I ordered within 1 week.

Top : Fred perry top (1/2 price) with a black skirt from Urban Outfitters
Bag: Vivienne Westwood Green Tartan Orb (courtesy of ebay) with receipt bought from genuine VW shop
Iphone case: Paperchase, is a colourful butterfly case which I love. (but looking at the Sena Wallet case hmmm)

I promise my next blog will be beauty related...

Goodbye online world.. We'll see each other again... soon

Today is the day I have my eye surgery. no idea if it'll be a success (yes everyone says it'll be but I'm scared to death) I wave goodbye to you until my eyes can see.

Before my surgery been doing shopping (we love shopping) to prepare myself of the next few days

  • ready made meal, no brainer meal that you can just put in microwave and ready to eat
  • face wipes. As no water can go into your eyes, you can wash your face
  • no makeup for 2 weeks. (I wanna ask can I at least wear concealer?)
  • extra painkillers
  • tidy the flat. to make sure only cats are the only obstacle from room to kitchen or toilet
so off I go now.. We'll see each other soon

CP Fr Hong Kong and my little business

I'm the cutest cat in the world by Mui Chu

so continuing on my haul.. I recently asked a friend to help out to get two pieces of clothing from a local Hong kong brand called th. 

they managed to get the copyright of Creamy Mami, a famous cartoon from my era hehe
so this is what i got...
  Creamy Mami t-shirt

On the label, it also has the stickers :) and oh my god... it is even cuter with the prints

also got this little dress

the ribbon makes it sooo cute... I couldn't resist the tempation not getting this

So my business...

I actually run an online business outside the blogasphere. I help people to CP stuff back to Hong Kong  and been working for over 1 year now. Some of my customers found this blog so I may just speak here.

I mainly CP anything (from t-shirts, vivienne westwood shoes, to even facial machines, and a greenhouse) to anywhere in the world, but I focus on helping Hong Kong customers. And this is my company website:

I am also looking to expand the business by offering CP from Hong Kong and other places around the world. And primarily, Japan, Korea, USA, China and Malaysia. If anyone is looking for some business experience and opportunity, please let me know.

I need someone who are good at internet shopping, have a bank account and good at fashion for this job. (Some space at home to store items is a bonus) This can be either dealing with customers from where you are, or helping to stock whatever the customer need. I now have someone from Hong Kong so if you are any of the above region, feel free to contact me direct at eve@loveeveltd.com

Although the website is primarily in Chinese, don't worry, most of our customers speak English so language is not a problem.

The business is definitely expanding and hence I'm delegating this business out more.

So this is my little blurb abt my business.

Taobao haul - real size Hello Kitty handbag

I just did a massive Taobao haul last week. Taobao? what's taobao. It is the China version of ebay, but rather than bidding, it is like online shops (so more towards the Gmarket concept). I need some red pockets for my wedding and some practice exercise for my JLPT exams in Dec. when it is only £2 per book compare to £16, you know where i want to buy them

I might one day write a guide on how to taobao... rather complicated especially you are from overseas. Taobao is strictly a Chinese only website and although it is only open to the China region customers, there's a way getting round that problem and buy super cheap goods.

picture heavy, here it goes

 Who doesn't fall for this gorgeous Hello Kitty Handbag? It is made of shiny plastic wire and crystals...
It is one of its kind... they have purple, pink, and yellow in colour and different sizes as well. Mine is between a medium and large (60cm)

A jill stuart inspired dress in Chiffon. I really can't say no for this.. cost of £15.

A pair of camelia sandals and some redpockets for our wedding (I think is around £7 for both?)
A Black Camelia Print handbag (roughly £30)
 see I love Camelia...

I also hauled from Hong Kong with the help with a friend... and I'll talk about my little business that I run behind this blog as well (it is all about hauling)
