Project Finish it Up: November 2011

Thursday, December 08, 2011

I know I haven't been posting regularly lately.

The thing is - I have been spending time with my family and meeting my friends almost everyday till late. Not to mention attending events. Plus, I'm someone whom needs a bit of alone time everyday. But trust me that I haven't forgotten you girls because here I am squeezing every bit of time to put together this post for you. Most people would probably think that it doesn't take any longer than a few minutes to do up a post, but trust me, it isn't. You see, I have to take pictures, resize them and watermark them and then I have to think about the content and the way to phrase them and last but not least, proof-reading.

Only managed to finish using 4 products in the month of November, not to mention that one is of sample size! :X

Maybe I should be more disciplined and try to finish more products in December. I really hope to finish at least one of my makeup products since I have NEVER ever finish a makeup product before.

1. Amethystory Mineral Bubble Face Wash

Overall Rating: ★★★★☆

I have reviewed this face wash before, you can read my thoughts here,

Repurchase: Maybe

2. Juju AquaMoist Whitening Gel Cream

Whitening: ★★★☆☆
Moisturizing: ★★
Oil-free: ★★
Overall Rating: ★★

I picked up this product over at Watsons after reading about it on Andy Lee's blog. As most of you would know by now that I'm really into whitening products because I want to be fairer badly. On top of that, it doesn't contains alcohol, coloring, fragrance, mineral oil or animal deviant ingredients.

I usually apply this at night after I double cleanse my face and tone my face so that I will wake up to softer and brighter skin. The consistency of Juju AquaMoist Whitening Gel Cream feels similar to that of sleeping masks/packs except that its a bit lighter.

The only gripe that I have about this product is that the texture can be rather sticky initially and it takes some time to get used to that.

Repurchase: Yes

3. Sekkisei Supreme Washing Cream

Fragrance: ★★☆☆☆
Moisturizing: ★★★☆☆
Ability to foam: ★★
Overall Rating: ★★★☆☆

This sample-sized cream cleanser was given to me by Jess.

Although it foams rather well when used with a face wash net, but I have my reservations for this cleanser as I really don't like the scent of it and the fact that it does make my skin feel tight after cleansing.

Repurchase: No

4. Crabtree & Evelyn La Source Relaxing Body Wash

Moisturizing: ★★
Relaxing: ★★★★★
Affordability: ★★★☆☆
Overall Rating: ★★

FYI, this was a gift from my Aunt.

At USD$20 for a bottle, its way out of my budget for a bottle of body wash, especially now that I am contributing to Singapore's unemployment rate. Apart from the hefty price tag that it comes with (for a bottle of body wash), its everything you want your body wash to be and something that you would want to come home to - especially after a long day at work or listening to monotonous lectures and squeezing with other commuters on public transport.

Repurchase: Yes if I have that spare cash

I hope you like this post. Thanks for reading.
