Review: NOPS Egg White Bubble Cleanser

NOPS Egg White Bubble Cleanser (160ml)
This week review is on NOPS Egg White Bubble Cleanser. This product is redeemed from Venus Beauty Facebook during their redemption giveaway event somewhere in September 2012. This product works well for me as a cleanser. :)

Results:
  • Remove dead skin cells

You may read more about this product from Venus Beauty Facebook.  
Ingredients in NOPS Egg White Bubble Cleanser
Box of NOPS Egg White Bubble Cleanser

How to use NOPS Egg White Bubble Cleanser
Pump 3 - 4 times and massage thoroughly all over your face. 
How to use and what the product do.
My Review
This NOPS Egg White Bubble Cleanser have a special pump that will pump the cleanser out as white foam, ready to massage into the skin. The foam have a egg white smell, which smell nice to me but my mum do not like it. 
NOPS Egg White Bubble Cleanser
After cleansing, my face feels clean, refreshing and hydrated. Even the next day when I wake up, my face still feels hydrated and it is not oily. 

White foam when pumped out from the cleanser
After massaging on my hand
After using for quite sometime, I read from Venus Beauty that it removed makeup too! /shock I was surprised. So I decided to test it out, on my hands first. /hmm

I put on all my makeups onto my hand first as shown below. 

Makeup From Left: Eye Liner, Eye Brown Pencil, Eye Base, Mascara,
Eye Shadow, BB Cream, Blusher, Foundation, Lipstick
After that, I pump the white foam from the cleanser onto half of my hand and i leave it for 5 minutes. After that I rub the foam onto half of my hand and I wash off. It indeed removed all makeups except lipstick. /sweat
Cleanser put onto hand for 5 Minutes
Cleanser rubbed onto lower half of the hand
After washing the lower half of the hand. All makeup removed Except lipstick.
I wash the second time, this time round I wash off everything. Lower half of the hand that is washed the second time have all the makeup removed including the lipstick this time round. However, upper half of the hand still have lipstick not washed off. 

Conclusion, the cleanser can remove makeup but have to be cleanse at least 2 times to completely remove all makeup. 
Cleansing the whole hand
Lower half washed second time is completely clean but upper half washed for the first time have lipstick still there.
I will personally recommend to use this product as normal cleanser for daily cleansing of the face as it really hydrate and make my skin feels refreshing without trace of oiliness. However, I will still prefer to use a separate makeup remover for removing makeups, then use this cleanser to cleanse the face as a double precaution.   

Where to buy?
This product can be bought at Venus Beauty Store (Check Venus Beauty Facebook Page for store locations) at a retail price of $29.90.

Where to get sample?
Redemption giveaway for this product is long over. However you may still go to Venus Beauty Facebook Page and like their page for their ongoing or future redemption giveaway events.

Review: Rachel K Youth Complex Eye Cream

Youth Complex Eye Cream (Retail Size: 15ml)
/hihi This week review will be on Rachel K Youth Complex Eye Cream. My eye serum is running out soon. So was trying to get a new eye serum that will have more effect on my eyes. Read some forum where people have good results after using this eye cream. Therefore, bought one at Watsons during 20%+5% discount promotion to try and I am satisfied with the results that this Rachel K Eye Cream have on my eyes. 

Rachel K Youth Complex Eye Cream Summary
On the Youth Complex Eye Cream bottle, it says that "This certified organic anti-aging eye cream contains powerful active ingredients (Algae from depth of the oceans, Aloe Vera, Shea Butter, Jojoba, Olive Oils, Squalane) that rapidly smooth, hydrate, reduce puffiness and dark under-eye circles". 

Results of using this eye cream:
  • Reduce the appearance of wrinkles
  • Delay signs of aging
  • Reduce puffiness
  • Reduce dark circles under your eyes

You may read more on Rachel K Youth Complex Eye Cream from Rachel K website or on their Facebook Page

Ingredients in the Youth Complex Eye Cream
How to use Youth Complex Eye Cream?
The box explain how to use the eye cream with its unique massage applicator. Use this eye cream daily. 

How to use the eye cream
My Review
This Youth Complex Eye Cream has a very unique massage applicator that you can use to massage the eye cream onto your eyes. It says that this applicator will delivers instant de-puffing action for under-eye bags to instantly awaken the eye area and promote skin circulation. So, lets see if its does that to my eyes. /hmm


The unique massage applicator
When I first press the cream out of the applicator, I notice there is no much smell to the cream and its a creamy in color. 

How the eye cream looks like.
The massage applicator is not difficult to use but I was a bit not use to it as I have never used any eye cream or eye serum with massage applicator. So I am quite excited when I first try it. /wahaha 

I followed the instruction on the box. First, I dispense a small amount of the cream onto the eye area. Then, I use the applicator to massage my eye area. I notice the cream is not oily. And just after applying, my eye area feels a little bit warm which is comfortable to me.

Well I did not see very drastic different for the first application but the eye feels smooth and hydrated the next day morning when I wake up. Other than that, no much different. But I decided to give it a few more days.

Around day 9 morning, I look into the mirror and finally see much improvement to my eye. :D My dark circles especially reduced and puffiness reduced as well. But as for the wrinkles, I think mine was fine lines, have no much different still.

Overall, I am very please and excited with the results of this Youth Complex Eye Cream. /XD As I have used quite a number of different brands of eye cream / serum but none of them gave such significant results to my eyes. 

I will recommend this eye cream to people who share the same dark circles and puffiness problem as me. Since it improve my problems, it should have some help for yours too. :)


Before applying
Day 1: After applying
Day 9 In the morning without applying anything

Where to buy?

Review: Lancôme Renergie CC Multi-Lift Instant Illuminating Color Corrector

This week review will be on Lancôme Renergie CC Multi-Lift Instant Illuminating Color Corrector. I have posted 6 December 2012 on the redemption of this sample. And this sample came fast. I have received the sample this Thursday 13 December 2012 and is impressed by the results after using it.  =D>

With Renergie CC Multi-Lift, skin instantly feels denser and firmer, skin color is corrected and illuminated. The skin is beautifully lifted and even and looks years younger.

Usage and Results
My Review
I was going through my Facebook News Feed when I saw Lancôme giving away samples for their new Renergie CC Multi-Lift. I was so excited and redeemed one. In just one week time, the sample arrived. :))

There are 2 sample pack I received, shade 1 and shade 2. I started starring at the 2 packs, question marks started to grow on top of my head. "Which one should I use?" /blur To make sure I will fully utilize the benefit, I decided to search Lancôme web site to find out more first. After reading, I decided to try shade 2 of the sample given which state for fair/beige skin which calms yellowing. 

The CC cream is beige in color with no significant fragrance. My first touch on the Renergie CC cream, I feel that it is not sticky and thick like the current BB cream I'm using. This Lancome Renergie CC Cream has a pretty lightweight texture. I have an oily skin. Therefore this lightweight texture CC Cream helps my skin to have a clean finish. 

Renergie CC Cream Shade 2
After the normal cleanse, tone, serum and moisturize, I applied the CC Cream. My skin is able to absorb the CC cream very easily and my skin looks natural, almost like I did not apply anything onto it. 

Further look into the mirror, I notice that my skin complexion looks brighter, more even and smooth. It feels hydrating and also does cover my lighter scar on my skin. 

As for my dark circles, it does not cover fully but covers only some lighter once. I have very heavy dark circles. So although I still need to use concealer to cover those darker once, the results as compare to my current BB cream is already better. At least I still look natural, not like panda. :P

The firming action actually does not come immediately. I feel the firming only after like 20mins of applying them onto my skin. And the finishing effect makes me skip my foundation totally.

Before applying
After applying
Overall I will recommend this Renergie CC Cream. It does very good finishing effect making my skin natural and beautiful without much trouble. :D

Where to buy?
This new Lancôme Renergie CC Multi-Lift is available at Lancôme counters for a retail price of S$100 per tube (40ml).
