My Review
This hand cream is a sample that I redeem it from Loccitane Singapore Facebook Page.

The sample size hand cream in a convenient travel size (15ml) which is easy for me to carry around. :D

The hand cream is white in color. It produces a nice flowery fragrance smell when apply onto the hand.

Its unlike other hand cream which is often much heavy and sticky after apply. This Loccitane hand cream is much lighter and it is not sticky and not oily as well. Its more aqua texture I feel.

Hand is able to absorb the hand cream very fast, leaving my hand smooth, soft and moisturized, without any uncomfortable feeling. :)

Review: Milky Foot Intense Exfoliating Foot Pad

Milky Foot Intense Exfoliating Foot Pad (25ml per foot pad X2)
This week review will be on Milky Foot Intense Exfoliating Foot Pad. This was the prizes that I won playing Confirmtrading Beauty Trove.

Well, I have given this to my mum to use. But I guess that its not quite suitable for my mum's very dry and hard cracks foot. After my mum uses it, the effect is not as smooth and soft as stated. Those sole of the foot is still cracked and dry even after peeling. 

Its really up to individual now. If your feet is not as seriously cracked and dry, maybe you can give it a try. :)

Information written on the box.

How to use Milky Foot Intense Exfoliating Foot Pad?

Precautions and Ingredients
How to use.
My Review
This was the prizes that I won playing Confirmtrading Beauty Trove.
 
One packet of milky foot consist of a pair of foot pad, each 25ml. The size that was given to me was regular size.

How the packet look like.
A pair of foot pad.
When cut open, it produces a nice smell.
When cut opened.
Well, I have given this to my mum to use. :D Yes, she became my guinea pig to try products again. =))

My mum told me that it feels sticky and watery jelly when feet is inside the foot pad. It feels cooling too. 

It is recommended to wear socks. But my mum got no suitable socks. So she use rubber band to secure it instead. /hmm Looks weird to me.
Front side during application.
Side view during application.
After 60 minutes, during washing off, it produces a very strong smell. Same smell when opened the pad.
How it looks like just before wash.
After wash and dry, my mum's skin is not as dry before apply. The sticky feeling during application is gone too. But the fragrance smell produces from the foot pad is still present. 

5 days after my mum uses the milky foot, skin on her feet started to peel off slowly. It does look ugly to me and I also have to keep reminding her not to peel off using her hand. :)
5 Days after using the milky foot.
3 weeks later, my mum's feet finish peeling. Its not totally smooth and soft. Certain area like the sole of her feet, still crack and dry. 

But I guess that its not quite suitable for my mum's very dry and hard cracks foot. After my mum uses it, the effect is not as smooth and soft as stated. Those sole of the foot is still cracked and dry even after peeling. 
My mum's feet from before use to after 3 weeks of use.
Maybe she needs another round of application. But that means its not really value for money any more to me.

Its really up to individual now. If your feet is not as seriously cracked and dry, maybe you can give it a try. :)

Where to buy it?
Milky Foot Intense Exfoliating Foot Pad can be found at Watsons, Guardian, BHG, Nishino Pharmacy and OG at S$32.90.

I have always been a Body Shop fans especially their Body Lotion and Shower Gel. But for this particular The Body Shop product, I must say its not suitable for me. Overall, I feel that its not suitable for people with oily or acne skin. This is because the Night Cream is too oily and cause pimples outbreak. And also it leave a sticky feeling after applying. 

Therefore this The Body Shop Vitamin E Nourishing Night Cream, I will not recommend them to people with oily or acne skin. /omg

My Review
This is one of the door gift that I received from one of The Body Shop sales event.

This night cream is pink in color and has a creamy texture. It also produces a light fragrance smell but can't really figure out what kind of smell is it. /hmm
How the cream looked like.
The first feeling when I use the night cream, its oily and sticky. :( But I go ahead to apply them. my skin feel smooth but a bit sticky. 
Before Apply.
Applying night cream.
After applying
All goes well until one week later, I realize that my skin starts to develop small pimples on my T-zone area. /omg 
Pimples start to grow.
You must be thinking, maybe its cause by other factor? But I only start develop back pimples after I use this night cream. So I decided to stop using it and see what happened. Indeed, it is cause by this night cream coz after I stop using it, my skin condition slowly gets back to health. 

Well, I have always been a Body Shop fans especially their Body Lotion and Shower Gel. But for this particular The Body Shop product, I must say its not suitable for me.  

Overall, I feel that this The Body Shop night cream is not suitable for people with oily or acne skin. This is because the Night Cream is too oily and cause pimples outbreak. And also it leave a sticky feeling after applying. 

Therefore this The Body Shop Vitamin E Nourishing Night Cream, I will not recommend them to people with oily or acne skin. :)

Review: Byly Depil Hair Removal (with Thermal Water)

Byly Depil Hair Removal (2 strips)
This week review is on Byly Depil Hair Removal. This is a sample given in the goodies bag when I attended the EzyForum Event during April this year. 

My mum became my product guinea pig again because of her hairy leg. :p Overall, this hair removal strip can remove hair cleanly and effectively. The re-growth period lasted very long. 2 weeks from using the strip, hairs have not been seen growing. But, using this hair removal strip is quite painful if you have hairy legs. :D

Byly Depil (with Thermal Water) Summary
The latest treatment from laboratorios Byly is especially suitable for people with delicate skin because it prevents irritation and calms the skin after hair removal. 

The dermo-elastic formula adapts itself to the skin's contours and sticks to the hair itself, eliminating even the shortest hairs. 

Thermal water is rich in calcium and magnesium, which is well known for its therapeutic properties. 
Instruction on how to use the strip.
You may go to http://www.ezyhealth.com/magazine/byly-depil/  for information.

How to use Byly Depil (with Thermal Water)?
3 steps:
  1. Refresh: Before hair removal, give skin a gentle massage with the pre-depilation wipe. 
  2. Remove hair: Hold strip between hands for few seconds to condition the wax. Separate the strips slowly and apply them to the areas to be depilated, smoothing the strip down in the direction of hair growth. Then immediately hold the skin taught and pull the strip off quickly against the direction of hair growth. 
  3. Calm and hydrate: After hair removal, give skin gentle massage with the after depilation wipes.

My Review
This is a sample given in the goodies bag when I attended the EzyForum Event during April this year. 

My mum became my product guinea pig again because of her hairy leg. :p 


The sample pack consist of 4 strips, 1 pre-waxing tissue and 1 post-waxing tissue. 
What is inside the sample pack.
The pre-waxing tissue just feels like an ordinary wet tissue. After cleaning, it feels cooling and hair can be seen easily. 

Pre-waxing pack.
How the pre-waxing tissue looks like.
How leg look like after pre-waxing.
The strip can be pull apart easily. But once apart, the strip is very sticky. And the application process is very messy as it stick all over my hands. 
Strips
But the strip can cleanly pull hair off the leg. The area just being pull off will be very sticky and I can see all the pull off hairs on the strips. 
Half done pull off leg.
Pull off hair on the strips
To remove all the hair from my mum's 1 leg, 2 strips is needed. And I actually need to stick on and pull off several times (around 4 times per strips), to cleanly remove all the hairs from 1 leg. But one thing I like about it is that 1 strip can be re-stick on and pull off a lot of times, not just one time. :)

Ah ha! You must be thinking, "eee. That must be painful!" /shock And yes, I asked my mum and she say of course it is painful. She say it feels like ants bite. 

Another thing I discovered is that you may need another person to help you with the removal of hair, otherwise, it will not be clean. :p

And yes, by the time I'm done with both my mum's leg, my hand is very very sticky all over. :(

The post-waxing tissue came handy. The tissue contain oil, so it is oily. The post-waxing tissue is able to clean off the sticky wax left on the leg. But it takes very long time to dry. So my mum use a normal tissue to wipe off after a while. 
Post-waxing pack.
How the post-waxing tissue looks like.
Hairs are cleanly removed from my mum's leg and the leg feels smooth too. No poky feeling at all.

And one thing my mum notice is the re-growth period of the hairs on her legs. Its 2 weeks from using this hair removal strip and still legs are smooth with no sign of hairs re-growth. =D>
Before Using.
After using.
As compare, previously using hair removal cream, legs not as smooth after removal, legs started feeling poky and hair re-growth only after a short 3 days from removal. 

Overall, this hair removal strip can remove hair cleanly and effectively. The re-growth period lasted very long. 2 weeks from using the strip, hairs have not been seen growing. But, using this hair removal strip is quite painful if you have hairy legs. But 1 strip can be stick on and pull off a lot of times (re-useable). /XD

Where to buy it?
Byly Depil Hair Removal can be bought at selected BHG, Beauty Language, Sasa and Watsons Stores from S$10.90 to S$13.90. Comes in 12 strips per box. 

Where to get sample?
Nope. No sample redemption that I know for Byly Depil Hair Removal. :( I got the sample from attending EzyForum event.
