Review: Mentholatum Lip Pure Series

Another review for my favourite lip care brand: Mentholatum! :)

Being someone with dry lips, I tend to lick them from time to time. It is not the right way to solve the problem. When your lips are dry, it means that your lips deprives moisture and licking them only alleviates the problem temporarily. When the saliva dries, it will make it even drier, giving chapped and even cracked lips!

In order to prevent such cases from occurring, it's best to use a lip balm/gel with moisturising properties such as the new Mentholatum Lip Pure series. This series contain no preservatives and has plant ingredients like shea butter, almond, aloe vera extract, jojoba oil, beeswax, grape seed; to hydrate and moisturise lips for healthier looking lips!

To start off, I would like to thank Mentholatum & EK Media for sponsoring me with these lovely lip care products to share with my readers:) Apparently there were some hiccups so I received these late, hence the awful late review :/
Anyway, here they are! Mentholatum Lip Pure Lip Balm (left) and Mentholatum's Lip Pure Honey Lemon Lip Gel (right). Here are some background information about this series:
*You can click on the images to enlarge them too:)

Mentholatum's Lip Pure Honey Lemon Lip Gel comes in a squeeze tube form, allowing you to control the amount you need easily. As the name suggests, it comes in gel form in a shade of gold and has a sweet scent; similar to my favourite honey lemon drink.
When applied, it gives a glossy finish which can be a little too thick for my liking, but it does help with my dry lips, doesn't dry them out even after I removed it. Also, it seems smells so good that I can't help but lick my lips and it tastes alittle sweet :)

The lip gel managed to stay on my lips for 5 hours, didn't eat in this period though, so you might want to re-apply after meals!

As for Mentholatum Lip Pure Lip Balm, it comes in a lipstick-like form, different from the usual Mentholatum lip balm series, comparison picture as seen below:
The outlook of this lip balm is simpler, with only the words Lip Pure imprinted on the milky white cover. Like most lip balms, the texture is smooth and gives a matte look as compared to the lip gel. In addition, it doesn't have a strong scent, just a mild scent of herb, unlike the lip gel, you can't smell it once applied. It lasts 5-6hours without intake of food, you can always reapply after meals :) Plus, it helps with my dry lips well too, no more dry flakes!

Wondering which to choose?
If you want a matte look for school or just to alleviate your dry lips, Mentholatum Lip Pure Lip Balm would be a good choice!
If you wish to complete your makeup look with a glossy shine but don't want to dry up your lips with lipstick/gloss, Mentholatum's Lip Pure Honey Lemon Lip Gel would be perfect!
Lastly, you can redeem a sample of lipice sheer colour here! :)

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 …
