Review: Laneige Sun Block Oil-Free SPF35 PA++

  • Oil-free formula gives matte touch without oily or shininess giving a light usage feeling. 
  • Silicon polymer ingredients hide pores and silky powder with excellent sebum absorptive power absorbs sebum, maintaining sleek and refreshing skin tone. 
  • Clove oil and herb extracts control sebum secretion and soothes skin tone, leaving skin feel clarified and healthy.   
Ingredient List

The most important thing one can do to maintain the beauty of the skin is to protect it from UV light. The sun's rays can trigger dark spots, wrinkles, and even skin cancer! By wearing sunscreen/sunblock daily, you can both prevent futher damage and get restoration benefits for your skin. That's because SPF not only protects your skn, it also allows it to expend less energy to protect itself and more on repairing past abuse.

I haven't been using sunblock for the longest time as the previous one I tried gave a sticky finish which I disliked! Now that I know about the importance of sunblock/sunscreen, I make it a point to find a suitable product for my skin. I needed an oil-free sunblock for my combination/oily face and I chanced upon Laneige, though I find the price is alittle steep for my budget, I went ahead to get it as previous laneige products I've tried didn't cause any problems for me.
Laneige's sun block comes in a white squeeze tube with nozzle which is good for dispensing the right amount of sunblock one might need. It has a light cream-like texture that is easily absorbed when applied to skin, giving a slight cooling sensation. Plus, I love the scent! It's similar to Laneige's water bank essence but slightly better.
After application, it gives a matte and non-sticky finish but has a dewy look and mum mentions that it looks more like my face is super oily :( However, when I used an oil blotter, there wasn't any oil at all. Even after 4-5 hours, the amount of oil that the blotter picks up is much lesser than before. The only thing that I dislike will be the dewy look :(

Overall, I think this is a great sunblock, especially for combination/oily skin types! No wonder I keep seeing good reviews about this :p I shall try a few more other brands, my first choice being innisfree, will update with a comparison review once I get hold of innisfree sunblock + finish this tube! :)

Straight to the point - for those who are lazy to read everything :p
[What I like about it]
✔ A matte, non-sticky finish
✔ Lightly scented
✔ Easily absorbed

[What I dislike about it]
✘ Gives a dewy look which can look oily at times

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 …
