Review: Vita Yin Yang Cordyceps

Vita Yin Yang Cordyceps (60 capsules)
This week review is on Vita Yin Yang Cordyceps. :D

Overall after consuming this Vita Yin Yang Cordyceps capsules for 1 week, it helps to improve morning mucus. Also I realise that I do not feel tired that easily after long day of work or shopping. I will definitely recommend this produce to people who wish to improve their health of windpipe, lung and kidney.

Vita Yin Yang Cordyceps Summary
Cordyceps can only be found in Western China on high mountains 12,000 feet above sea level. Vita Green commercialized it by cultivation. Vita Yin Yang contains 100% premium grade pure cultivated Cordyceps and is sold at an affordable price.

1 capsule = 15 wild cordyceps  (in terms of active ingredient)

Cordyceps is the best health supplement for nasal allergy as it Tonifies the Lung and Nourishes Kidney Yin. According to Chinese Medicine, deficiency of the Lung and Kidney (ubiquitous among city dwellers due to air pollution) create problems in the respiratory system. Vita Yin Yang tonifies kidney and lung therefore helps reduce symptoms and prevent respiratory problems.

It is also excellent for battling air pollution, and a must for smokers to protect the lung.

This Vita Yin Yang Cordyceps have no side effect and is made in Hong Kong. 

A small tip: Vita Yin Yang can be used to boil herbal tonic soups by pouring the Cordyceps powder out of the capsule into the tonic soups.

My Review
I have a bottle of Vita Yin Yang Cordyceps (60 capsules) to try. I am very excited as I have always known the goodness of consuming Cordyceps. So I can't wait to see what effect this bottle of Cordyceps have on me. :D

This product comes in a nice red package. There are altogether 60 capsules. 
Nice red package.
Opening the box
Information booklet inside the box.
I open the box, I saw 6 small packets with 10 capsules in each packet. Very convenient to bring around. :)
6 small packet inside the box. Each small packet consist of 10 capsules. 
Well, nothing very special about the capsule. It just look like any other ordinary capsule of other supplements. :P
How each pack look like.
1 capsule
By now, I guess that you must be thinking, "never heard of it before. Is is harmful?" /hmm Well, come to supplement consumption, I am of course as cautious as everybody. I did my research before accepting this. Vita Green products is safe for consumption. :D

Ok, back to my review. When consumption, the cordyceps capsule produces a very light cordyceps smell and taste. But it is still alright, not difficult to swallow at all. 

After consuming for 1 week, 1 capsule every morning, I realise that I do not feel tired that easily after long day of work or shopping. And my hands usually turns cold very easily under air-con but after consuming for just one week, it doesn't turn cold that easily. :) I was told by my mum, that is because the Qi inside my body is enough to keep my body warm. In other words, this cordyceps have slowly improve my body's Qi. 

I gave some for my brother to consume too. And he actually have morning mucus problems. Every morning when he woke up, he will go sneeze out a lot of morning mucus. But after he consume this cordyceps, on the 3rd day itself, he realise that his morning mucus have reduces slightly. /XD Good for him and good for us too because his long minutes of sneezing out mucus process really feels irritating and disgusting. /wahaha

From the tips given, I asked my mum to boil herbal tonic soups using this cordyceps and the soup turns out so nice to drink. 
cordyceps powder, opened up inside 1 capsule
She uses 3 cordyceps capsules to boil the cordyceps chicken tonic soup for the whole family, of course, opened up and uses the cordyceps powders inside. 
Nice tonic Soup prepared using cordyceps powder inside the capsule
So many uses and benefit isn't it! :D I'm really overjoyed. 

Overall, after consuming this Vita Yin Yang Cordyceps capsules for 1 week, it helps to improve morning mucus. Also I do not feel tired that easily after long day of work or shopping. And it can be use to make nice and healthy soup too. /please

I will definitely recommend this produce to people who wish to improve their health of windpipe, lung and kidney.

My Review
This is a sample that I redeem from Nivea Facebook Page.They are having this "Nivea You're Gifted" sample giving activity and their Facebook Fans is entitled to choose 1 out of 4 products. This Cleansing Wipes is the product I choose to receive since I used makeup remover wipes offen.

The wipes came in a pack with an opening that allow user to reseal the opening for storage. 
Pull up wipe from opening.
How the wipe looks like.
The wipe itself contain no fragrance and its not oily. But I personally feel that its not wet enough, it a bit too dry to me. 

In order to see if the wipe really is able to wipe off makeup, lets do a test. /wahaha 

From left to right: 
The Body Shop eye brown pencil,  Jill Lowe eye liner, Silkygirl Big Eye waterproof mascara, Slikygirl eye shadow, Jill Lowe eye base, Lancome Renergie CC Cream, Jill Lowe foundation, Silkygirl blusher, The Body Shop Lily Cole Puff On Radiance 
All makeup on.
The moment of truth. First gentle wipe off half the makeup on my hand. I was totally impressed and shocked by how clean the cleansing wipe can wipe off my makeup, even waterproof once in just once wipe. And consider that I did not actually use any strength, just gently wipe. /omg
Half of the makeup off in just one gentle wipe.
From the wipe itself, you can see all the makeup on it, showing yes, it is being wipe off.
Wiped off makeup.
Wipe off the other half left on my hand, I can see no trace of makeup left on my hand. The wipe again show all the makeup wiped off on it. =D>
All makeup cleanly removed.
All makeup wiped off onto the wipe itself.
To make sure its really clean, I wipe the clean part of the wipe onto my hand again. This time round, it shows that its completely clean. Amazing isn't it? Just 1 wipe and everything is clean.
Makeup on hand shows its cleanly removed by going over it 2nd time.
Also after clean, it does not make my skin dry. My skin feel so clean, soft and smooth. And it stays hydrated.  

Clean is clean, but I will still use makeup remover after using this cleansing wipe for double cleaning off my makeup. 

Overall, I am really impressed by how this little tissue can wipe all my makeup off gently and cleanly. Even waterproof mascara is removed, leaving my skin still as smooth and hydrated. All using just 1 wipe. Better still, its fragrance, alcohol, color and oil free. Just the effective and right product for a lazy girl like me. /please

I will definitely recommend this product to lazy women that wish to effectively and cleanly removed makeup in a short and fast way. :D

Each Jelly Strip comes in a small long tube of packet that is very easy to carry around and consume. 
Small packet easy to bring around.
The Jelly itself is yellow in color for this pear flavour.  

The jelly taste delicious to me. Its sweet and taste like some kind of soft drink like F&N. Its pear flavour but taste like apple to me. :)

I put these Jelly strips in the refrigerator because it says keep away from humid environment as it will melt. It turns out that chilled jelly taste even nicer that non-chilled. :D
Jelly is Yellow in Color.
Long thin strip of Jelly.
Really, I did not feel any different to my skin by eating a few strips of these jelly. But its always good to eat these healthy and delicious jelly that provide water supply and other benefits into the body and on skin, rather than eating those artificial colored Jelly with no benefit other than taste nice. This jelly strip is a better choice to me.  

Overall, this little strip of Jelly taste delicious. Just 10g of Jelly but provides lots of benefit to skin and health. I pretty like this Jelly Strips. But price is a bit too expensive to me though. /please
