Review: Sunstar Tonic Shampoo Energy Menthol

Sunstar Tonic Shampoo with Conditioner & Shampoo (12ml each)
This week review will be on Sunstar Tonic Shampoo Energy Menthol with Conditioner 2 in 1 and Sunstar Tonic Shampoo Energy Menthol. This is a sample that I redeem from their Sunstar Tonic Facebook page last year around September 2012. Although the shampoo wrote for men, women can use it too according to them. So I use it. Overall the shampoo gave my scalp a very refreshing cool feeling. Its so cool that after washing, I can still feel the coolness on my scalp. This actually helps make me stay awake and for Singapore hot weather, it feels good after stepping out of the bath room.

My Review
This is a sample that I redeem from their Sunstar Tonic Facebook page last year around September 2012. Although the shampoo wrote for men, women can use it too according to them. So I use it. :p

Both Sunstar Tonic Shampoo Energy Menthol with or without conditioner is transparent in color. It smell like mint too which is correct since its energy menthol. 
How the shampoo look like.
Lets talk about Sunstar Tonic Shampoo Energy Menthol (the green packet one) first. This contain no conditioner. When I massage the shampoo on my hair, around 1 to 2 minutes, my whole scalp just feel like eating menthol sweet. It feel very cool and refreshing. Just the way how your mouth feel after finishing a strong cool menthol sweet. :D

After I wash off, the very cool and refreshing feeling is still there. And my hair does not feel dry. It feel hydrated and my scalp don't feel oily. I feel so awake and refreshingly cool. =D>

For Sunstar Tonic Shampoo Energy Menthol with conditioner 2 in 1 (the blue packet one), its almost the same. But its not as cool as the one without conditioner. It took me longer to feel the coolness on my scalp. The coolness is not as long lasting as well. But I still feel hydrated and refreshing. 

I personally like the Sunstar Tonic Shampoo Energy Menthol (the green packet one) over the one with conditioner (the blue packet). This is because the one without conditioner makes me feel cooler and more refreshing. 

Overall the shampoo gave my scalp a very refreshing cool feeling. Its so cool that after washing, I can still feel the coolness on my scalp. This actually helps make me stay awake and for Singapore hot weather, it feels good after stepping out of the bath room. /wahaha

For those who like this cool feeling shampoo, I will definitely recommend it to you.  

Where to buy it?
Its available in Watsons store.

Review: DHC Mild Soap

DHC Mild Soap (5g)
This week review is on DHC Mild Soap. This is a sample given when I was shopping in Watsons AMK Hub Store around September last year. The promoter gave me this sample to try when I was actually asking sample for other products instead. Its been a long time since I use this kind of cake base soap. After using, my face feel clean and refreshing without any trace of oiliness. 

DHC Mild Soap Summary
From DHC website, "This is no ordinary soap. This conditioning cleanser leaves skin refreshingly clean without that tight, itchy feeling. The emollient-rich lather goes to work on grime and dirt, leaving humectants to help maintain your skin’s moisture balance. This clear and simple bar—free of unnecessary colors and fragrances—works for anyone’s skin. It’s a great body cleanser, too."

How to use DHC Mild Soap
Wet face with lukewarm water. Create lather in palms, then massage face with foam to cleanse. Rinse thoroughly.
Information on the sample Sachet.
My Review
This is a sample given when I was shopping in Watsons AMK Hub Store around September last year. The promoter gave me this sample to try when I was actually asking sample for other products instead. No harm trying since I have not use DHC products before. /nobigdeal

Its been a long time since I use this kind of cake base soap. I does remind me of those olden days kind of soap. So I'm pretty curious about this. :D

The soap is transparent. It produces a very light smell which I can't figure out what it smell like. But I personally do not like the smell because it smell very olden days soap (olden days as in grandma's period of time) which is not very pleasant. Also, I find it not very convenient to store the soap. /:)
How the soap look like.
As I lather the soap on my palm, it produces soapy foam. This foam have the same normal soapy foam texture as those cleansing gel or non-cake soap. 
Soap form after lathering on my palm
After washing, my face feel very clean, moisturize and refreshing. Its not like other cleanser where your face feel very smooth when you touch it, this DHC mild soap does not leave a smooth touching feeling. In fact, I feel my face had a very refreshingly clean touching feeling. And I can feel no trace of unnecessary oil on my face. Most importantly, it do not cause me to have pimples.

Overall, this soap make my skin feel clean and refreshing without any trace of oiliness. I am satisfied with the result but I will not buy them as I am still more used to using gel like cleanser. For those who is used to cake-like cleanser, this is one cleanser you may consider getting. :)

Where to buy it?
Its available in Watsons store S$27.50 for 90g retail size. 

Where to get sample?
Well, I got this sample from the promoter in Watsons Store. So if you want to get the sample, you may get it from the promoters too.

Review: My Beauty Diary Southern France Apricot Mask and Arbutin Whitening Mask

My Beauty Diary Southern France Apricot Mask and Arbutin Whitening Mask (23ml/pc)
This week review is on My Beauty Diary Southern France Apricot Mask and Arbutin Whitening Mask. The Arbutin Whitening Mask was redeemed from My Beauty Diary Facebook Page sample redemption exercise September 2012 last year. The Southern France Apricot Mask was from the goodie bag from Cozycot Beauty Forum event December 2012 last year. 

Both masks make my skin smooth and hydrated after use, although different purposes are written on the packet of the mask. One thing I do not like is the sticky feeling right after removing the mask. But overall, I'm satisfied with the masks as both masks deliver the basic necessity that my face requires and I will definitely use them. :)

My Beauty Diary Southern France Apricot Mask Summary
Purpose: Soft, Smooth, High Moisture

It is suitable for all skin types, especially for dry and combination skin. 

Southern France Apricot essence possesses excellent moisturizing ability, to quench dry skin and ease both the tension and roughness caused by dehydration while oats, barley and hydrolyzed rice protein nourish dry skin and enhance skin elasticity, leaving the skin soft and velvety smooth. 
Instructions on packet
My Beauty Diary Arbutin Whitening Mask Summary 
Purpose: Freshening and Whitening

It is suitable for all skin types, especially for dull skin with uneven tone. 

Key ingredient Arbutin purifies, whitens and brightens skin, building a protective barrier that resists melanin. Mori folium and prunus x yedoensis (a type of Japanese cherry blossom) improves uneven skin tone and rejuvenates the skin to a translucent glow. 

You may go to My Beauty Diary Facebook Page for more information.
Instructions on packet
How to use My Beauty Diary Mask
  1. After cleansing, unfold the mask, remove protective backing and place it over your face for 20 - 30 minutes. 
  2. Gently massage remaining serum on your face upon removal of mask. 
  3. Do not wash off mask serum. Proceed with normal daily skincare routine. 
  4. Use at least 2 to 3 times per week. 
Southern France Apricot Mask Review
This sample was from the goodie bag from Cozycot Beauty Forum event December 2012 last year. 

I love to eat apricot. But not sure about apricot on mask. /wahaha

When I open the packet, there was a nice strong apricot smell. Just make me feel like eating apricot. =P~ There are two layer to the mask. One is the plastic sheet and one is the mask sheet. 
Open packet
2 sheets
Mask sheet
Plastic sheet
The mask sheet is thin (but not very thin) and not too thick either. There is quite a lot of serum in the packet. Serum is thick and sticky. 
 
The plastic sheet and the mask sheet is very easy to separate and easy to place onto my face. However, the mask did not manage to fit and stick properly around the nose and eye brown area properly. /nobigdeal
During application.
The mask sheet is not very lasting as it tears very easily. I was just adjusting the mask sheet on my face and "Poo", the mask tears. /omg
Mask tears easily.
During the 30 minutes application, I did not feel any poky feeling, but I do feel icy cool (because I place my mask in the refrigerator). Overall, no much feeling when applying it. 

After removing the mask 30 minutes later, my face is full of excess serum. And one thing I do not like is my face is very sticky. I have to massage the excess serum slowly into my face. After about 1 min, the serum is absorbed into my skin but I still do feel the stickiness. 

Its only after sometime (didn't really time but its around 10mins I estimate) that the sticky feeling is completely gone. And my face become very smooth, soft and very hydrating. 

Overall, I do not really like the sticky feeling but the after effect is very good. :D

Arbutin Whitening Mask Review
This sample was redeemed from My Beauty Diary Facebook Page sample redemption exercise September 2012 last year. 

When I open the packet for this mask, there is no particular smell that I notice(Not like the apricot mask). Same above, there are two layer to the mask. One is the plastic sheet and one is the mask sheet.
2 sheets
Mask sheet
Plastic Sheet
Same as above, the mask is thin and serum is thick and sticky. 

Not sure if its me who did adjust the mask properly now (but not for the apricot one), it stick and fit very well on my face, leaving no bubble even on those difficult areas this time round. =D>

During application, I do feel some part of my skin feel poky. My face feel like sucking the sheet of mask as the sheet feel tighter. 

30 minutes later after removing the mask, same as the apricot mask, my face is full of excess serum and have to massage slowly into skin and my face feel very sticky. :(

After a while later, skin feel smooth, hydrated and refreshing. And my red pimple became calmer, not so red anymore. But as for whitening, seriously, I didn't see any immediate whitening effect. Maybe this will need several more application to see the whitening effect. 

Overall, I do not really like the sticky feeling but the after effect is good.

My Review
This sample was redeem just last week. I was in doubt about how this 1ml only sample can ever produce anything on my skin when I first got hold of it. But after trying it, I quite like the effect. :D

Snowise EX Whitening Serum is cloudy white in color, not totally transparent. The serum have a gel like texture. Its not watery and not very thick. When you massage it onto your face, it produces a light fragrance smell. But I can't really make up what that smell is thought. Ginseng smell? Anywhere its nice smell to me. :)
Cloudy white gel like serum.
Massaging and applying this serum just remained me when I was applying boosting essence. The feeling felt the same to me. As always, I apply an appropriate amount and gently massage my face. 

Be it during or after applying this serum, it leave no trace of stickiness or oiliness feeling on my skin. 

I did not actually feel any immediate results after applying. I guess the serum needs time to absorb into my skin. /hmm

So I purposely leave it on for a while before I apply my other products onto my skin. It was really only after a while that I can feel the different. My tired and dull skin felt moisturize. And I could see slight natural glow on my face that brighten up my skin. Touching it, I feel my skin soft and smooth. /XD

The serum works very well with my other products too. My other products are able to absorb into my skin better. And the longer the time, the more you can see that your skin actually glows naturally. 

Not only that, I slept in air-con room. So usually when I wake up, my face will sometimes be very oily on the T-zone. Sometimes will be very dry and dull. Usually when you looked into the mirror, you will just feel that your skin is not alive. But after using this serum, the next day when I wake up, my face is still moisturize and smooth. You can still see the natural glow and brightness on your skin. 
Before use.
After use.
After use next day morning.
I am really impressed by what this 1ml Sulwhasoo Snowise EX Whitening Serum does. In just one application, I can already feel the slight improvement to my skin. My skin feel soft and smooth and also slightly brighten and whiten too. Just only one application brings me such result. I am sure that long application to this serum will bring even more results. 

I would recommend this product for its impressive results. But the price of this serum really turns me off though. S$268 is consider too expensive for me and I am those kind that will not buy such expensive product. But if if you are those kind that results matters more than how much the product is, then this product is definitely for you. :D

Where to buy it?
You may buy Sulwhasoo Snowise EX Whitening Serum from Sulwhasoo beauty counters at a retail prize of S$268 for 50ml.

Where to get sample?
Not sure if samples are still available as this sample redemption stated end 31 Mar 2013. But you may redeem a Snowise EX Whitening Serum sample from their Sulwhasoo boutiques at TANGS Beauty, TANGS Orchard and TANGS VivoCity upon a complimentary skin consultation. You may also like Sulwhasoo Facebook page for future sample redemption or promotions.
