Review: Hiruscar Anti Acne Range

Acne has always been one of my major skin concerns since young. A lot has been spent on improving my skin condition, be it facial or products. Even though it did improve over time, I still have occasional outbreaks due to various reasons. It is important for me to keep the bad skin conditions to the minimum because of work reasons so I do try to use anti-acne products from time to time to help with it.
A couple of days ago, I started on a new range of anti acne products from Hiruscar, a dermatological skin care formulated especially for acne prone skin. This range includes:
~Hiruscar Anti Acne Pore Purifying Cleanser
~Hiruscar Anti Acne Pore Purifying Serum
~Hiruscar Anti Acne Spot Gel

I'm loving this range so far, it hasn't caused any new breakouts like how some products do. It not only helps to keep my breakouts under control; the improvement can be seen within 2 days! My skin tends to be quite stubborn so the before/after picture towards the end of the post might not show that significant of a result but I will continue to use them religiously to see even more improvement :)

Another thing that I'm impressed is how it works well with my current products. I have been using this range together with my current toner & moisturiser and it seems to complement these products. So if you're thinking of trying this range without changing your entire skin care routine, I think you can try to mix it up as the formula is gentle too! The few key ingredients in this formula include salicylic acid (helps with removing dead skin cells,  aloe vera (soothe redness) and MPS - Mucopolysaccharide polysulphate (maintains skin moisture).
Step 1: Hiruscar Anti Acne Pore Purifying Cleanser ($14.90)
A gentle, sulfate-free, oil-free and colour-free cleanser that deeply cleanses the skin without stripping its natural moisture. I love how one pump of this water-based cleanser effectively removes excess dirt & sebum and still balances the skin's moisture. My face feels clean though the product is not strong and doesn't lather as much due to its gentle formula. Plus, the scent is pleasant too!
Step 2: Hiruscar Anti Acne Pore Purifying Serum ($39.90)
A light-weight moisturiser for acne prone skin that helps to provide the required moisture while reducing excess sebum which can cause acne formation. This actually works as a toner/moisturiser/serum which is rather impressive. I am using this more as a serum so I start off with the cleanser, my toner, the serum and my moisturiser before finishing off with spot gel on problematic areas. This has a unique scent that kinda smells spicy? Scent aside, the serum works as promised, a light and non-greasy texture that gets absorbed into the skin fast and leaving my face shine-free for a much longer period of time.
Step 3: Hiruscar Anti Acne Spot Gel ($19.90)
The highlight of the range! This clear spot gel helps to reduce acne problems like blackheads, whiteheads & pimples. Formulated with Vitamin C derivative, it also helps to lighten acne spots and dark marks. I haven't actually tried this on spots/dark marks, and I think I am using too little product on problematic areas, probably another reason why I didn't manage to see that much of results. Nevertheless, I will be applying more on the areas and hopefully clear up more of the problematic areas soon!
Additional note, it is best to use this 2-3 times a day to see better results! :)
As promised, here's how my skin looks after using it, ignore the huge pores by the way!

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…

Japan Airlines (JAL) Interview Process in Singapore

(Image credit to Japan Airlines)

Unlike most airlines that organised open day and mass interview at one go with multiple stages to see whether you qualify to be a cabin crew, Japan Airlines (JAL) only have 2 interview stages and medical checkup to determine if you're suitable for the job.

The application process is done online through their JAL Singapore site where you have to fill in various information like education, job experiences, references etc, just like what most companies would require one to fill up before the interview.

After you're done, wait for their email for the 1st interview, I received it 2 days after the closing date for applications. If you are unable to make it to the interview timing indicated, you can email them and reschedule for a earlier/later timing(dates can't be changed).
Make sure you are there at least 15 minutes before your interview slot. Do take note of the requirement stated in the email too, for the 1st interview I was asked to bring alo…
