Sponsored post - Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Gel

If you ask me what's the most important skincare product, I will have to say...


The sun is your skin's WORST enemy due to UV Rays.

For starters, there are two types of UV Rays - UVA Rays and UVB Rays.
Each type of UV Ray does horrible things to your skin.

UVA Rays are absorbed into the Dermis skin layer, causing premature ageing and wrinkles!
UVB Rays are absorbed into the Epidermis skin layer (above Dermis), which are the main cause to burning!

Of course, there are more consequences to not using sunscreen to protect our skin, such as increase in sebum level, more obvious hyper-pigmentations, uneven skin tone and even dryness.

What I realised is that almost EVERY skin problem can be caused by the sun, including premature ageing and wrinkles, which is why sunscreen is extremely important in a skincare routine.

Surveys shown that more than 65% of women in Singapore do not use Sunscreen on a daily basis, even if they know the damage caused by UV rays!

Using Sunscreen can be quite a hassle sometimes and one of the biggest factors is that most Sunscreens will usually leave our skin with this sticky after-feel, or some of them are SO OILY it feels a little grotesque to have a pile of oil on our face and body.

Biore came up with this Sunscreen to tackle this huge problem - Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Gel!

This Sunscreen is loaded with SPF50+ which blocks up to 98% of UVB Rays that causes sun burns!

With PA++++, it helps to block UVA Rays that cause premature ageing and wrinkles.
PA++++ is the current highest level of protection in this industry!

My favourite thing about Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Gel is, just like the name, IT'S A WATERY GEL!

After applying, it turns into a texture like WATER in an instant and gets absorbed into your skin right away - just like how water will!

I applied more so that you can see the water droplets!

Look at how light it is!

As it's a Watery Gel, it has a cooling effect on our skin as well!
Singapore is a humid country and we need something which helps to soothe our skin!
Personally, I like to use this on my hands and legs since it cools down my body temperature. ^_^

It gets absorbed really quickly, leaving no signs of white cast!
This is perfect as a makeup base as we can start applying makeup immediately after application of Sunscreen!

Of course, it is non-sticky due to the watery texture.

I've done an oil-blotting test to check if it's oily after application.
As you can see from the picture above, there are almost no oil at all! :D

Since it absorbs really quickly leaving no white cast and does not feel oily or sticky at all, I like to bring it out with me so I can reapply on my skin later in the day! ^_^

Even after application, my skin feels refreshed and non-sticky! :D

The retail price is $18.90 and you can get it at all pharmacies, hyper & super market, beauty stores, departmental stores and selected minimarts. :)

You can try this out first by redeeming a free sample on their page HERE!

Thanks for reading and ALL HAIL TO PRETTIER SKIN!~

How are things going?

Hello there! :D

Here's my once in a while update hahaha.

There are so many social media platforms for me to update you about my life now (things like Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, I can update on the go), so I've been getting slightly lazy to update this space. I feel like I'm repeating what I'm saying HAHA.

For the people who have been sticking around this space, thank you! :D

Recently, I've been quite 'lepak' 'cause I've just graduated!!!!!!


There are plenty of good memories in my poly school days.

School is actually a really fun thing (apart from studying) but I haven't get to enjoy my school life as much due to many unforeseen circumstances back in Primary and Secondary school times.

Being able to enjoy school is something 'new' to me and I'm really happy I got to make some awesome friends and meet lots of really nice people in these two and a half years ('cause internship kinda suck) LOL

MAMA PAPA AND I at the Graduation Ceremony!

And my favourite bunch of people that I'm always happy to see in school.

Cactus! :D

Just like our name, I hope we can all be as tough as Cactus, withstanding the heat and braving through the sand storm.
Hope of all of you get to walk the path you like from this crossroad we're standing. ^_^


My simple OOTD under the Graduation Robe. :)

As of now, I'm unsure of what I want to do, I hope something comes to me soon, so I can seize the opportunity.

Happy graduation to all of you who have graduated this year!

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.


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.

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.


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!


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!


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.


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 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~

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.


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.
