Review: Mentholatum Organic Lip Balm

With the advancement in technology, the importance of using organic products are made aware to people and this has result in the popularity of organic skincare in the recent years. I'm sure many of you are aware of ingredients which can be harmful to your skin and are seeking for products which contains less or no harmful chemicals, in other words, looking for products with organic ingredients.

I'm happy to say that my favourite lip care brand, Mentholatum, has launched their new range of organic lip balms in two delightful flavours: Raspberry & Strawberry + Lavender & Orange!

The packaging is different from the usual designs where this makes use of a simple design of trees symbolizing nature; among the ingredients used, 100% are natural ingredients and 97.84% are organic ingredients sourced from internationally renowned farms which goes to show how much effort Mentholatum puts into ensuring quality products for its consumers.

Some of the key organic ingredients are:
✔ African Organic Shea Butter (Soothes & heals dry lips)
✔ Spanish Organic Oil (Fights aging)
✔ Argentinean Organic Jojoba Oil (Provides long-lasting hydration to the lips)
✔ Colombian Organic Coconut Oil (Soften the lips)

 The outlook of the lip balm is just simple as the rest of Mentholatum lip balms. The difference between the two flavours is the scent; texture and colour wise, both are exactly the same.

Personally, I love strawberries so naturally I tried strawberry&raspberry first! This has a light scent of strawberry and gives a smooth texture without leaving a sticky feeling. You don't have to worry about hair getting stuck to your lips whenever the wind blows! ;)

As for lavender&orange, I find that this has a slightly stronger scent that reminds me of the lavender scent used in spas. Similar to strawberry&raspberry, it glides on easily and helps to soothe my dry lips! I used to have problems with certain lip care products which dries out my lips more than moisturising it. Mentholatum, however, does what it promises to deliver, healthy looking lips!

I love using this to prevent getting dry, cracked lips again. Perfect for everyday use :D



Not sure if Mentholatum is suitable for you? Fret not, they're giving out sample size LipIce Fruity Lipbalm on their Facebook page, redeem it here! ;)

You can also get these wonderful organic lip balms:
Available in 1) Raspberry & Strawberry and 2) Lavender & Orange flavours. 
Prices at $7.90 each. 
Sold at Watsons, Guardian, Supermarkets and Departmental stores.

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 …
