Review: Biore Aqua Jelly Makeup Remover

Finally received the sample from Kao Singapore; I got to know about this through the TV commercial and immediately went online to redeem this new product. It has all been redeemed but you can get a sample from CLEO's July issue.
I have yet to try this product as I didn't apply any makeup today, will update again once I've tried it ;)

Updated on 15th July 2012
Biore Aqua Jelly Makeup Remover has a slight scent and comes in a clear gel-like form which is neither sticky or oily.
Product Features
  • Smooth serum-like texture glides off easily
  • Removes even waterproof mascara
  • Contains 1/3 moisturizing essence which nourishes and hydrates
  • No sticky and greasy after-feel
Typed out the ingredient list as I can't find one online, hope this would help those who are mindful about the ingredients used in products :)
Before - ELF eye shadow, Maybelline Hyper Sharp Liner, Missha Mascara, Daiso Glitter Eyeshadow

Sorry about the bad quality pictures as the hotel room had yellow lighting which causes my pictures' colour look weird after I tried to auto-correct them. Anyway, I used a single drop of the jelly makeup remover and gently rubbed against the eye makeup, after which I rinsed it off with water and I'm surprised that it removed all traces of my eye makeup.
The eye makeup I used are not exactly waterproof but the jelly makeup remover did make the process easier and faster. I don't need to use cotton pads/tissue and a single drop is sufficient to remove a single side of my eye makeup in less than 5 minutes. I didn't have to tug on my eyelashes, instead all I need to do is to gently rubbed like the image shown above. In addition, skin doesn't feel dry after using this which means the moisturizing essence worked. The only negative point would be its unsuitability for contact lens users, which means you need to remove them before cleaning your makeup off and the product does stings my eyes alittle.

Overall, I have to say the product is worth buying as it worked like what it claims and you don't need much to clean off the makeup so a retail size bottle would last quite awhile:)

Update with a video, I forgot to record the washing off part :(

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 …
