Tokyo Luxey Meetup - PS.Cafe

Earlier last week, I got to attend a cozy meetup session with Tokyo Luxey at PS.Cafe. Tokyo Luxey is actually part of Rouge Asia, and it is created to provide "Word of Mouth" marketing mainly through social media as technology advances fast these days. The online site also provides Japanese beauty and lifestyle product sampling programs, with plans of helping 2nd and 3rd-tier Japanese cosmetic brands promote and sell their products to more women outside of Japan.

Here's a short extract from Tokyo Luxey site to better help you understand them:
We are a “LUXE” community that supplies Japanese-made beauty and lifestyle-related information and products of genuine high quality.
The LUXE beauty and lifestyle we advocate are not solely focused on outward appearances; rather, we seek beauty that simultaneously originates from the outside and from within. With these types of LUXE products, every day can be filled with happiness by bringing prosperity to the livelihood of women like you.

We believe that for LUXE beauty and lifestyle goods, nothing surpasses products originating from Japan. They are safe and reliable while simultaneously possessing exceptional functionality, and they are all-in-all thrilling products. We carefully select products from Japan that fill this narrative of genuinely superior goods. We introduce this curated selection to the LUXEY like you, who understands the policies and mindset of TOKYO LUXEY.
This cozy meetup session was made possible by two lovely Japanese ladies, Ms Chie Maeda and Ms Hiromi Hanado, the managing and marketing director respectively. The session started off with an introduction to this community and sampling of a number of Japanese products for both skincare and makeup. We were each given some goodies to try, scroll down for more information!

Albion Skin Conditioner Essential Paper Mask
One of the key ingredients of Albion Skin Conditioner series is Job's Tears (otherwise known as concentrated Coix lacryma-jobi extract), which is known to regulate corneous cell metabolism, lighten skin complexion, process anti-inflammatory, restore immune functions and eliminating skin trouble.
The properties of this mask is same as the popular and high raved Albion Skin Conditioner, intending to try that after hearing all the raves but for now I'll just stick to this. I didn't really like the smell and the fitting of the mask doesn't really go well with my big face. It's too early to tell the results with just one use so if I ever get the conditioner, I will update with the review!

Albion Eclafutur
The quick-permeating serum delivers a superb smoothness in an instant, promoting refined texture and firmness that impart brightness to the whole facial expression. The benefits includes quick repairing of damage cells and restoring the functions of all the skin cells to create healthy beautiful skin. Some of the key ingredients includes Nacocesta BL, Ryukyu ganebu and Cupuacu butter.
The serum has a milky colour with a lightweight texture, making it easy to be applied and absorbed by the skin. My skin does feel smooth after application but not so much of the instant radiant effect as stated. I do hope prolong usage will help to lighten my complexion!

Fleur de Mer Creme Essentielle
A super lightweight face moisturizer that can be used both day and night on normal skin that helps to lock in moisture and restore radiance.

Make It & Co. Face & Body Wash Oil
Made of organic soybean oil that contains high ratio of lecithin, sterols, Vitamin A, E and K. It gently helps to cleanse by forming an emulsion on the skin. There's also lavender to restore skin from dullness and thyme for anti-bacteria purposes.
Though the instructions state that there's no need for a second wash, I find that the initial wash leaves an oily feeling so I have to use another oil-free cleanser to have squeaky clean skin.

Make It & Co. Moisturizer Cream
A light and moisturising day cream with witch hazel flower and apricot kernel oil. It tones up pores and prevent skin from dry damage.
Personally I don't like the smell of this organic product but I love how this small tub of goodness comes with a tiny spatula to maintain the hygiene. It does leave a sticky feeling after application so I'm not very keen to use this too often.

24hr Cosme Compact Powder
Just the name of it attracts me to this! I have combination skin so it is very difficult to find a product that can stay on my skin throughout the day. I haven't tried this so I'll update with the review later on! 

Evangelist Nobuto UV Pretect BB Cream
This bb cream comes with SPF31 and is said to contain Placenta + EGF and if I'm not wrong, it can help to improve skin condition in about 3 weeks. I do like the bb cream as it's easy to blend but doesn't give a very good coverage. It will be better to use this as a base or on days where you don't need thick makeup and just some basic sun protection with natural looking complexion

If you are a fan of Japanese brands, don't miss this chance to join this community for more information of products as well as to make purchases of brands that can't be found in Singapore at the moment! Join Tokyo Luxey today! :)

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 …
