Remember the previous post about Shu Uemura’s Tsuya Skin Serum? It’s been close to a month since I started using Tsuya!
I noticed that my skin is more radiant and significantly softer as compared to prior using the serum. I really like this compared to my other serums as it’s absorbed really quickly. My skin is horribly dry before I started using Tsuya Skin and now, it’s more moisturised!
Thumbs up! My verdict? Love it! It’s a tad pricey in my opinion but it’s worth it. I’m still giving out the Tsuya Skin Serum. Do join the contest asap!
I was invited to Korres Store Opening by the kind folks at Absolute PR.
We were introduced to the Wild Wild World of Wild Rose. Wild Rose oil is used as it has a high vitamin C level, is rich in linoleic and linolenic acid and helps cell regeneration.
Korres kindly provided us with their hero product, the Wild Rose Eye Cream with SPF 15 which retails at $69 for a 15ml tube.
This velvety eye cream boasts to help brighten the eye area while simultaneously work against fine lines and dark circles. I have yet to see any difference so far but perhaps results will only show with long term usage.
The eye cream smells really nice with a hint of rose scent, without being overpowering. It is quickly absorbed into the skin. No complains so far
I bought the Wild Rose Exfoliating Cleanser, 150ml which retails at $48. I thought the price was rather reasonable for it’s size.
This cleanser can be used daily and is gentle to one’s skin.
The Wild Rose Exfoliating Cleanser contains natural exfoliating grains which is derived from Rice Seeds and Cherry stones which isn’t too rough for one’s skin.
Korres is also available online at www.korresasia.com. Do check out their site for attractive discounts and deals.
For a very affordable face scrub, do consider Dirty Works Pore-fect Face Scrub. For a 125ml tube, it retails at a bargain price of $15.90!!!!!
Use the face scrub once or twice a week. It contains fruit extracts which explains the zesty smell.
After using the face scrub, it’s time to pamper your face with the Dirty Works Belle of the Ball Face Mask. It retails at $19.90.
Detox your skin using this face mask! It not only deep cleanses your skin, it also replenishes your skin giving yourself a brighter and more radiant skin.

I was invited by the kind Shu Uemura folks to preview their latest product Tsuya Skin!
They demonstrated how to use Tsuya Skin on the model! Look how radiant her skin is!
Shu Uemura passed me a bottle of Tsuya Skin to try for myself how awesome it is!
I think I can use it for a whole lifetime!
Nah I kid! Here’s the actual size of the bottle! The 30ml bottle is retailing at S$108.
Tsuya Skin boasts to be able to “switch on” one’s youth power switch. It’s formula helps to reactivate cell regeneration and give one a porcelain-fine, petal-soft and translucent glowing skin.
Easy to apply using the dropper..
Pretty pink pearly drop. I rubbed Tsuya Skin in and it didn’t leave an oily feeling. Tsuya Skin smells quite good too! After trying Tsuya Skin for 7 days, here’s what i think of it. There’s a light scent, rather pleasant. To be honest, I do not see any visible results after 7 days. I used it before my other serum as I read that it actually helps absorption and increases the efficacy of other serums. Tsuya Skin feels rather heavy compared to other serums but is absorbed rather quickly.
You can apply Tsuya Skin in two different ways! You can either apply it as a serum after applying your toner and before your moisturiser to help improve your skin tone and complexion or you can use it as an enhancer to your current serum. Simply apply it before your existing serum to enhance the efficacy of the serum!
I’ll be giving away 10 bottles of Tsuya Skin essence 10ml to my blog readers! All you’ll have to do is:
I will choose 10 readers randomly! Contest ends 30th August! Shu Uemura will also be giving away a 7-Day trial of Tsuya Skin before the actual launch! Check out their Facebook to find out more!
I received a lovely kaleidoscope as my invite for Majolica Majorca’s Chapter 34 launch. Was very pleased to hear that the venue of the event was at Fullhouse. If you guys remembered, bff and i had visited Fullhouse in KL during our “Girls gone wild” trip last year.
We also visited Fullhouse a few weeks ago with our boys and really like the place. Same pretty concept but seemed a bit smaller than KL’s.
Back to topic, us Majolica Majorca ambassadors were shown pics and vids of the Majolica Majorca Evangelist event.
Here’s the video of Hui rong’s training!

Remember the previous entry? I’ll be reviewing the products from Majolica Majorca’s Chapter 33 Lash King!
This chapter is all about the simple eye makeup, nothing too drama mama. For this, I used the chapter’s products for a simple everyday look.
When I first received the Press Invites for the press event of Majolica Majorca Chapter 33 Lash King, I was really amused and intrigued by it.
Here’s the third edition of bite-sized reviews!
The kind folks at RoC had passed me both their Soleil Protection+ (sunblock) and the Keops (deodorant).
Sunblock is extremely important. As we grow older, we tend to have age spots, freckles and skin ages extremely fast. I use sunblock everyday without fail. I tried the RoC’s sunblock and felt that it isn’t sticky (I have a pet peeve for uber sticky products), no strong smells and doesn’t leave any residue. I like it!
KEOPS is a deodorant that boasts to last for 24 hours and is both fragrance and alcohol free. Personally I kinda prefer deodorants with fragrance but I guess fragrance free would be better for my skin?
My mum and I have been a huge fan of the ROC Extra Comfort Cleansing Water. Well, to be exact, my mum has been a huge fan and I have been just stealing her stuff to use It’s good for light makeup or just simple cleansing in my opinion but definitely not for heavy duty makeup.
For heavier makeup, I would recommend using the Cleansing Express Makeup Remover instead.
Here’s the giftpack I received at one of their events. I used the makeup remover and it’s fantastic! Even removed my stubborn Majolica Majorca mascara! My three favourite eye makeup removers would be: ZA’s Cleansing Oil, Loreal’s Eye and Lip makeup remover and Cleansing Express.
The kind folks at Grayling and Boots had sent over some lovely sweet smelling Boots products.
I have yet to try the Body Wash and Shower Gel but I’ve tried out the lovely Boots Amazon Forest Mango & Babassu Body Butter.
This extremely rich body butter smells heavenly and is extremely nourishing for my skin. I suffer from dry skin and I find that it’s fantastic for me. Super moisturising. Highly recommended!
