Biore Aqua Jelly Makeup Remover

As someone who absolutely loves putting on makeup, removing makeup is extremely important to me!

There are many many damaging effects to your skin if you don't remove your makeup thoroughly at the end of the day!!!

Not removing your makeup at the end of the day before you sleep will clog pores, which will in turn DEEPEN WRINKLES and DEHYDRATE your skin!
On top of that, it may cause SEVERE BREAKOUTS due to the dirt and sebum left on your skin overnight.

Although removing makeup is really important, I have to admit as well that it is a hassle having to remove makeup, especially when they are very stubborn and difficult to get rid of. (LIKE MASCARA OMG)

Hence, I'm very picky when it comes to makeup remover!!!

Recently, Biore sent me their new product and I am IMPRESSED.

BIORE AQUA JELLY MAKEUP REMOVER!


They do have a previous version, and now, they came up with a NEW AND IMPROVED version which is a whole lot better than their previous one.
I. AM. IMPRESSED.


One reason is because I've tried the previous version of Biore Aqua Jelly Makeup Remover and I loved it!
Now that it's the IMPROVED VERSION, it works better than how amazing it already was. :O


To me, these are the top 3 criteria for the BEST makeup remover.

1) SMOOTH

It must not tug my skin and create WRINKLES! As most of us will tug our skin repeatedly during the process of makeup removal, the makeup remover itself should be smooth so it will not tug our skin, especially around our delicate eye area!

2) GOOD CLEANSING ABILITY

It's a given that a good makeup remover should remove ALL my makeup with no hassle!!!
Even stubborn makeup like waterproof mascara and eyeliner!

3) LEAVES MY SKIN SOFT AND COMFORTABLE

I absolutely hate it when makeup removers leave those icky sticky feeling after removal!
Some makeup removers leave LOTS OF OIL on our skin as well which is a no-no for me.

I am proud to say that Biore Aqua Jelly Makeup Remover fits in all 3 criteria!!!

Here's a side by side comparison from their older version.


The new one is so much smoother due to their new formulation! It slides down immediately after I lift up the card.
Smoother = less tugging of skin when removing makeup = no wrinkles!!! 

I love how our skin will be left soft and dewy after removal~ :) That's because it includes 40% moisturising essence!

Here's a test that I put for Biore Aqua Jelly Makeup Remover, with another brand of rinse-off makeup remover I'll call Brand X.


I'm impressed with the cleansing ability of Biore Aqua Jelly Makeup Remover!
Like what it mentioned, it removed my stubborn waterproof eyeliner in just ONE GLIDE.

There are still some eyeliner left after using Brand X!

Also, most of the rinse-off makeup remover are oil-based which I don't really like because it leaves our skin oily after removal as well. T _ T
Brand X made my skin super oily so that is a NO.

Biore Aqua Jelly Makeup Remover has a jelly texture, hence, skin will not be left oily after removal!!!
Here's a quick test for that!!!


No oil on my oil blotting paper at all!!!

Best thing is.... IT SMELLS GREAT HAHAHA.

I LOVE IT.


How to use it?

It's really simple!
Just pump 2-3 pumps of product on dry hands and massage it gently on your skin (remember to close your eyes when removing eye makeup).
Wash off after your makeup are fully dissolved! :)

YOU NEED TO TRY IT TO BELIEVE IT.

You can get Biore Aqua Jelly Makeup Remover at all pharmacies, hyper and supermarket, beauty stores, departmental stores and selected minimarts retailing at just $24.90 each! :D

You can also redeem FREE SAMPLES at Biore Singapore's Facebook Page to try out for yourself! I'm sure you'll love it~

Thanks for reading!!!

Petite France

Hello there I'm back with more pictures from Seoul HAHA.

I've uploaded Part 3 of Take me to Korea!





I spent the first week of my trip staying around Hongdae before I moved to Gangnam!

Funny thing is I kept going back to Hongdae area even after I moved to Gangnam. xD
Maybe 'cause I'm young LOL I prefer Hongdae!
Also because my parents are staying in Hongdae so to meet them, we had to travel all the way back haha.


Here's my final picture in Hongdae!!!


A market near our place~


With my momma and poppaaaaa.


On the taxi to Gangnam.

Horrible ride - Half the time the cab driver was cursing in Korean LOL and scolding everything he sees.
Also, he couldn't find our guesthouse so he was MAD.
And also got into an accident with a BUS.

Wtf.


We reached Big John's Place safely in the end!!! :D

Anyway, when I first reached Big John's, I was really surprised!
It felt really homely haha and Kkum + Kong (their dogs) greeted us HAHA.

Big John and Jay were both really friendly and immediately came out to help us with our heavy luggages!!!

(Another thing I was super surprised with is that they both managed to carry my 17kg luggage with one hand....easily.) How much have I struggled..........

So we checked in to our room and headed out to take a look around Gangnam!



And bought melons + strawberries from a wet market nearby~

The next day~ 

Funtastic Korea provided a tour for my family and my travel buddy!


I've chosen the tour which brings us to Nami Island!
The tour brought us to Petite France, Nami Island, and Gangchon Rail Bike!

We have a private limousine van which is SUPER SPACIOUS and comfortable!!! I'm very impressed with the ride~


First stop was Petite France!

It's featured in MANY of my FAVOURITE DRAMAS haha like Secret Garden and You Who Came From The Stars!



Gorgeous place.


Cinderella Soh.







That's all for this post!!!!! :D

I'll update the rest in another post~

Should I do a picture blog instead?

Thanks for reading!

What's going on

Not sure what's getting to me recently but I'm just so tired.

So tired of smiling and laughing to things.  Literally.

It's not that I'm unhappy.

When I feel happy with something, I just don't feel the need to smile. I just don't want to.
When people joke around me, I just don't feel like laughing.
When people tease me, I can't react like how I used to.
I feel offended, I get mad, but I don't feel like scolding anyone.

I'm so tired I feel like the energy in me is draining.

I need to talk to someone, but I'm so tired of talking.

I just don't want to do anything, I don't want to meet people, I don't want to react to things.

But I don't want to be alone. 

What am I supposed to do.

I feel dead, inside.

Hope I'll be back soon.

Am I old?

Hello there!

Back for another post about my Seoul Trip!

Just in case you haven't been following my YouTube page, I've posted some vlogs up there!
Do watch it if you're bored HAHA.




I went to Gwanghwamun to check out the palace called Gyeongbokgong.

Not sure about everyone else, I really like exploring/looking at such heritage sites hahaha.
I think it's fascinating and all - totally not something a youngster like to do.
For some reason I think it entertains me more than it bores me haha.

Before the trip down to Gwanghwamun, I met up with the lady boss of Seoul Mansion and Funko and she treated us to an awesome meal!

Some Andong Style chicken and I heard it's pretty popular among foreigners. Omg I am starving right now.


Yeap so next is Gwanghwamun...




I was like :O the whole time.

Don't you find it amazing how they managed to build this up without the help of technology back then?!?!

And how amazing that it lasted for so long??

I wonder how it was like back then.


Also felt extra fascinated 'cause it feels like I'm in the drama "Moon Embracing the Sun" HAHAHAHA KIM SOO HYUN STOOD HERE BEFOREEEEOHEIFJERFJER.



Not to mention how beautiful this place is.....


It's just jaw-dropping omg.


Dinner that day was Chicken and Beer!!! ^_^

Chicken definitely taste better with beer hahaha.


So that was all for that day!!!

Bonus will be Injolmi Bingsoo which I LOVEEEE omg.
If you haven't tried it and if you're heading to Seoul, PLEASE TRY THIS.


IT'S REALLY GOOD I LOVE IT.

That's pretty much all for the first week of Seoul actually.
I suggest you to check out my vlogs 'cause I'm a really lazy blogger HAHA I don't like to type so much in details.

Anyway, thanks to Seoul Mansion, I enjoyed my first week staying around Hongdae.


One reason why I loved Seoul Mansion was due to the location!
It is located around Hongdae, extremely convenient because it's just 3 min away from Hongik University train station!!!

Just across the road there are PLENTY of restaurants so you will NEVER be hungry.
Even if you're lazy to head out for food, you can get help from the reception and order some Chicken with Beer or Jjajangmyun with Tangsuyuk!!!


I really love Hongdae because it's pretty much like a youngster's hangout place so there were plenty of shops around that we can shop till we drop.
Just two stations away there is Ewha University which IS MY FAVOURITE STATION full of shopping.

If you're there to shop, Hongdae and Ewha are MUST-GO places.

That's why I was really happy with Seoul Mansion 'cause it's so convenient staying there!!!


On top of that, their receptionists were really helpful, tending to my needs whenever and whatever.
Seoul mansion is perfect even for the introverts 'cause it's a really private guesthouse where you get your own private space - even a private restroom and a private kitchen!

I love their mini kitchen concept haha we got to cook our own dinner when it was too cold to head out!


This is my room!!! I will be featuring more on my video so do stick by my YouTube Channel!!! :D

Thank you so much for reading!!! :D Can't wait to update more.
