Review - The Face Shop Blackhead EX Nose Clay Mask

Another highly raved beauty product that works!
In the past, I don't really bother to google for reviews and end up getting many products that isn't suitable/doesn't work for me. Now I have the tendency to google for reviews before buying a certain product! So I will be sharing product reviews more often for those who're just like me ;)
Description [Taken from]
The Face Shop Black Head EX Nose Clay Mask is a peel off mask that is designed for deep cleansing and dissolve blackheads. Contains Mulberry, Coix Seed and black rice extracts, which has anti-aging properties, leaving skin shine with healthy glow, youthful and supple.

After cleansing your face with warm water, apply a thick layer of the mask onto your nose and wait 10-15 minutes for the mask to dry before peeling it off. Rinse your nose with water after that.

Retail Price: ?
Amount I paid: $8

Before this product, I used Daiso Natural Pack which only costs $2 but it only worked for the few times, eventually it doesn't remove much blackheads. Back to the review, I bought the product from an overseas site so the information are all in Korean. It comes in 50g, 13cm tube and the consistency of the product is just like glue: thick and sticky. It doesn't smell like one though - has a slight fragrance smell with a tinge of fruit.
After washing with warm water to open up the pores, I apply a thin layer for it to be semi dry(probably 5mins) before applying a second thicker layer. It dried up in about 15 minutes and you have to peel it against your skin(from bottom to top) to remove the blackheads effectively. I've seen reviews saying that the peeling process hurt but mine didn't. It's kinda fun to peel off. Haha.
Anyway I'm surprised at how much blackheads the mask helped to remove! The picture isn't that clear but I pointed out a few of the many blackheads it removed. Judging from the amount of product, it can be used up to 20times? ;)

Oh and I heard that TFS will be coming up with a new packaging or maybe changing this, I wonder if it's true!

Straight to the point - for those who are lazy to read everything :p
[What I like about it]
✔ Affordable price for a product that works
✔ Removes most of the whiteheads & blackheads easily
✔ Pleasant smelling

[What I dislike about it]
✘ None!

(Definitely repurchase)

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 …
