Review: Too Cool For School (After School BB Foundation Lunch Box) in Soft Skin

Too Cool For School is not the usual Korean brand with all pink, frilly or cute designs. It is more of something different, fun, smart and artistic; featuring quirky artworks on their product packaging! As quoted from them: A whole new culture of experimental beauty art regardless of generation or age world of too cool. It's all you've ever dreamt of. Interesting isn't it?

Recently I received a sample of their diamond 4D skin effect bb foundation with SPF 37 PA ++ in soft skin (blue packaging). Look at the quirky design on its packaging! I've also seen their full size retail product before: it comes with highlighter and concealer, all in one, relatively more convenient to just bring one product out for touchups!

Too Cool For School After School BB Foundation Lunch Box SPF 37 PA++ contains all you need for a base makeup in a handy bottle. The bottom part of the bottle contains moisturizing BB cream, while the top part contains concealer and highlighter. It can naturally cover skin flaws and shape your 4D contour face line. With sunscreen SPF 37 PA + +, it effectively protects skin against harm by UVA and UVB and thius delays skin aging. Slide & Fix Polymer locks form a water-locking film over skin surface and prevent moisture loss. Organo-Silicone Coated Powder keeps the makeup long-lasting and durable. Diamond powder reflects light to refer you a sharp and outstanding face line.

Upon opening the travel size sample, there's a pleasant scent, some sort of light minty with a mix of floral smell which I like! The consistency of the bb foundation appears to be slightly thicker, a mix between thick foundation and the lightness of bb cream. Although the consistency is thick, it spreads out on skin rather easily and gives a medium coverage, buildable if you want better coverage but can leave a white cast if too much is used. The shade of bb foundation is rather fair but doesn't make me look too ghostly pale and blends rather well on my skin, plus points for this!

Also, for this particular type (soft skin), it actually gives a matte, healthy and soft finish which is good for combination skin like mine! I don't like glowy finish that some bb cream gives as it makes the skin to appear oily instead of glowy. It did quite a good job in covering up some of my lighter acne scars but not my huge pores. Last but not least, the lasting power is about 3-4 hours before I need to blot and touchup. There isn't much oil control so I think it will be more suitable for dry to normal skin type.

All in all, it's a pretty decent bb foundation with a good amount of SPF and  gives good coverage without causing any breakouts on my acne-prone skin, do give this a try if you are fair and has dry/normal skin!

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 …
