Review: Mentholatum Deep Moist - Natural

I'm back with another review of my favourite lip care brand: Mentholatum! This time round, I got to try Mentholatum Deep Moist - Natural; as the name suggests, it promises hydration with moisture locking ingredients to keep your lips soft and supple!

Deep Moist isn't launched recently, in fact it was launched in 2008 in Japan and one of the best selling products there. Its success was due to these 2 factors: premium hydrating ingredients at value pricing, and its elegant, ergonomic packaging design.

The key ingredients include:
- Hyaluronic Acid, a premium ingredient that forms a smooth, moisture locking shield for softer, smoother lips. It can hold 1000X its weight in water, or 6 litres of water with just 1g.
- Shea Butter heals the skin, and gives a soft, pleasant texture to the lip balm.
- Jojoba Oil gives pro-longed, whole day hydration to the lips.

Additionally, I noticed the unusual shape of the lip balm, unlike most lip balms, Deep Moist has an oval-shaped container design. The reason behind this is to enable one to apply the lip balm with ease, fitting the corner of the mouth well and applying it with a single swipe!

It's my first time using an oval-shaped lip balm and it does allow me to reach the corners of my mouth with ease. One thing that didn't appeal to me would be the lip balm formula being slightly harder to apply, took a little more effort with the application. But overall, it does keep my lips well moisturized without feeling sticky. It solved my problem of cracked lips too! :)

I like the simple royal blue packaging that might appeal to guys, without them feeling awkward about fanciful girly packaging! It's important to keep lips moisturized so it will look soft and kissable so guys should start using lip balms too, don't you think so? :)

Mentholatum Deep Moist is available at Watsons for $8each! :)

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 …
