Review - Daiso Meito Beauty Acerola Drink

As mentioned in the earlier posts, I will do reviews of products that I've bought from Daiso; hope it'll be helpful to those who intend to buy them ;)

Meito Beauty Acerola Drink.
A good source of collagen & vitamin C. I bought one in lemon flavour too, will try that after I have finished this packet.

Interesting facts about Collagen
-Collagen makes up a substantial amount of the protein composition of our skin, bones, joints, muscles, hair, nails, ligaments, tendons, cartilage and blood vessels. 70%-80% of all proteins in the skin are collagen, and 70%-80% of the organic ingredients in our bones comprises of collagen, thus Collagen is deemed as nurturing essence for our bones and skin.

-Collagen in our body decreases gradually after the age of 20, and its degradation will lead to aging skin, including wrinkles, rough skin, dull complexion, sagging skin, and pigmentation. At the same time, the degradation will lead to pathological change of bone, such as osteoporosis, joint stiffness, arthralgia, water retention in the joint, etc.

More information can be found here.Back to the review, I was attracted by an ad on one of the Daiso shelves(they usually promote popular selling products in that way!) but I can't find any reviews on this product so I decided to buy this and try it out myself. The nutritional information posted here are based on what google translate gave as the information at the back are all in Japanese.

Meito beauty acerola drink contains 200mg of collagen, 100mg of Vitamin C & 5mg of powdered royal jelly in every 8g and it costs $2 so it's pretty affordable for someone who wants to try out beauty drinks -like me:p It comes in 4 sachets per pack and each sachet contains light pink crystals-like powder(as seen in the last picture). It can be mixed with 120ml of warm or cold water for consumption.

The drink tastes alittle sour and nothing like cherry. I can't really put my finger to the taste of it but it wasn't unpleasant. I think it's abit like sour plum? In case you're wondering what acerola is, it's a fruit that resembles cherry and it's high in Vitamin C, which explains the 100mg of Vitamin C. ;)

I've been drinking this for a month; there's not much improvement to my skin, maybe because the amount of collagen is quite little. However, when I stopped drinking, I realized there's slightly more pimples even though it's not the time of the month. Maybe it's due to other skincare product or this product does help alittle, I guess I will drink whenever I remember. Haha.

[Update on Meito Beauty Lemon Drink]
The smell of this stinks! It's worse than the smell of lemon dishwasher :(
I'm glad I only bought one packet for this! The taste is just like lemonade but I can't stand the smell of this, I doubt I'll buy this flavour again.

Review: Owndays PC (Blue Shield) Lenses

A few months ago, I posted a guide & review on Owndays Singapore and mentioned that I would like to get PC lenses with them as well as do a pair of eye glasses in Korea/Japan and I did both! Now I have 3 pairs of spectacles which is alittle too much. Oh well, at least I don't have to worry about not being able to see if I were to lose one pair of spectacles!  Today I'll be reviewing on their PC aka blue shield lenses. They seemed to be emphasizing more on this type of lens lately and I didn't find a review on this so I decided to be the first to start. Owndays PC lenses come with a slight tinted brown colour and blue coating. The purpose of these lenses is to cut down a certain amount of blue light that is being emitted from electronic devices such as computer, mobile phones, TV, etc.  (Picture credited to Owndays Singapore)
You might be wondering, what is blue light and why do we emphasis so much on it now? Blue light is a type of light that is blue in colour(like duh.…

Review & Guide: Owndays Singapore

If you've been to Korea or Japan, you might have heard of getting a pair of spectacles done within the same day or even within minutes! Based on reviews I found online and through friends, it can cost less than $100 for a pair and I have been tempted to get mine done there ever since.

Earlier last year, Owndays decided to expand and opened its first shop in Singapore. To many, it was a relatively new concept to get spectacles within the same day but to me, it's like finally, I have a chance to experience it without having to travel!

A basic introduction to those who are not familiar with the store. Owndays is a brand from Japan that offers all-in-one price (frame + 1.6 high index aspheric lenses) at $98-$198. With 1,500 styles to choose from and processing time of 20 minutes, you can not only find a pair of spectacles to correct your vision but also change them according to different occasions.

I love their open concept. Unlike most optical…

Guide to KORAIL's O Train & V Train

Sightseeing trains are gaining popularity in Korea and it is one of the things you have to try when you're there! Today I'll be sharing on O Train & V Train which started its operations sightly more than a year ago on April 2013. These trains journey through Korea's inland valleys with the O-train looping around the central inland region, running through the provinces of Chungcheongbuk-do, Gangwon-do, and Gyeongsangbuk-do. While the V-train, connecting Buncheon in Gyeongsangbuk-do Province and Cheolam in Gangwon-do Province, runs through scenic valleys. Detailed information on these trains can be found on VisitKorea.

I realized there is a lack of information on the site as to how you can purchase the tickets online or offline and how to best plan the route if you would like to take both trains plus return to Seoul on the same day. So here's a simple post on how I purchased my tickets on the spot and the mistake I made(and you can avoid if you read this post), but …
