Review: Itoh Collagen Powder

Collagen is a protein made up of amino acids that is essential for various connective tissues in our body. Once we're in our 20s, collagen levels start to decrease and collagen loss will hit its peak at the age of 25, which means there will be early signs of aging, loss of moisture, elasticity in your skin, etc! Moreover, harmful UV rays, stress, lack of sleep and other unhealthy habits can further worsen the situation. It's better to start early if you want to maintain the suppleness and beautiful skin you have now!

One good way to start will be consuming beauty supplements: a certain amount of collagen product in the form of powder, drink or jelly strips and today I'll be reviewing on Itoh Collagen Powder. It is colourless, odourless, tasteless, non-sugar and non-fat. Doesn't it sounds good? I have been avoiding collagen powder for quite sometime as the previous brand I tried had a strong smell which I disliked and made my drinks taste weird :(
Let's see if this passes the test of being tasteless & odourless!

A box of Itoh Collagen Powder comes with 14 sachets, each sachet containing 3000mg of collagen powder. This particular product is manufactured in Japan and endorsed by Kevin 老师, my favourite Taiwan celebrity beauty guru! I went for one of his talk/makeup demo before and he's really friendly!

What's different about this collagen powder is the low molecular collagen molecules, extracted from healthy pigskin and cartilage tested by Japan SPF standard, with the fat and gelatin removed through high purification technology to ensure that it's safe and tasteless. The low molecular collagen molecules enhances the absorption of collagen, to capture all the benefits that collagen contributes, allowing results to be seen in 1-2 weeks (may vary between different people).

Time to try it out! As mentioned earlier, this can be mixed with any juice, drinks and even soups so I decided to add this to my pomegranate juice this morning. When I first opened it, I took a whiff and there wasn't any smell unlike the previous powder I tried. With that promising start, I mixed it with my cold juice which the powder doesn't dissolve entirely. I should have mixed it with my warm soup but then again, I can taste the powder directly to tell whether it is really tasteless. After a few sips with the undissolved powder, the taste of my juice remains unaffected and some of the undissolved powder that I consumed directly did not contain any taste at all!

I love that it can be mixed with any beverages and doesn't affect the original taste of your beverage and yet intake the suitable amount of collagen on the go with individually packed sachets. It would be advisable to mix the powder with a warm beverage or soup for it to dissolve entirely. And I think this can be consumed directly from sachet or mix with water since there's no odour or taste.

One last thing to mention, the collagen powder is non-halal and not suitable for vegetarians, other than that, it is suitable for any skin types and those above the age of 18.

Itoh Collagen Powder is available in Guardians stores at  $49.90/Box of 14 sachets
Or you can try the first at SampleStore before you make your purchases! :)

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 …
