Let's Talk Beauty - Banila Co Clean It Zero Radiance Makeup Remover Review

Looks like I'm on a Beauty Product blogging roll!

This is one of my Korean loots from last year and almost become one of my forgotten but it must still be mentioned gems.

Presenting the.....

Banila Co Clean It - Zero Radiance

Clean It Zero refers to cleaning it with zero irritation to the skin. Clean It Zero Radiance is the whitening version of its Clean It Zero range which consist of 3 other products. There's also the no-frill hardworking Original (in a pink cap tub packaging), Reveratrol for pore control (in green) and Purity for sensitive skin (in blue). Prices range from 18,000 won onward for a Original 100ml tub.

My 2 cents: 
The texture for Clean It Zero Radiance is best described as sherbet gelato texture balm that melts into the skin little rubbing and lifts off heavy makeup with a rinse of water. The product rinse well to a clean, toned and brighter looking skin without any icky greasy feeling nor drying the skin. It is easy to use more than required to remove your makeup initially but after trial and test, pick up a 50 cent size of product with the given applicator and it is sufficient to remove a whole face of makeup (think long lasting foundation, waterproof mascara, eyeliner and the likes) easily. Impressive not?

It is little wonder that the Banila Co Clean It Zero range had been crowned a Allure Korea Best of 2011 Beauty Product and featured as a 'Get it Beauty' (famous Korean beauty and makeup variety show) recommended item.

My recommendation will be - get it, try it and like it. Even better to stock up on it.

P/S: Currently, Korea is selling the bigger tub (180ml) at 25,000 won but I'm not sure if it's limited edition or the regular range.

Thanks for reading lovelies!

Let's talk Beauty - For the Chloe Eau De Perfume fans

I spot this from afar the moment I stepped into Taiwan Taoyuan Airport DFS early this year.

It's a distinctive new member to the usual range seen usually in Singapore counters and my initial thought was - alas! Chloe finally launch her new travel size EDP perfume (perhaps like Chanel Twist & Spray series). 

As it turns out that I'm only part correct. It's a travel friendly perfumed deodorant with the trademark Chloe EDP scent. It's extremely convenient and great for after work gym-ing or yoga classes, sunny beach vacations & short staycations where you want to smell good with a light scent and do not want to bring a whole slash of toiletries.

Chloe Perfumed Deodorant Natural Spray

It cost around SGD$50+ and available in Narita Airport DFS section. I hadn't seen them around Singapore (and that's probably because I mainly stalked Sephora nowadays) but my guess is it will be here in our sunny shores sooner or later.

Expensive deodorant or an affordable Chloe scent? You decide ;)

Have a nice weekend lovelies!

Tokyo Trip, May 2014 - Krispy Kreme at Shinjuku

A big part of our morning routine to the Tokyo Disney theme parks was a nice stroll from our hotel towards Time Square where we will pass by the standalone Krispy Kreme Store enroute and have our breakfast there.

Krispy Kreme Shinjuku Southern Terrace
 2-2-2 Yoyogi Shibuya-ku Tokyo, Shinjuku Southern Terrace (東京都渋谷区代々木2-2-2 新宿サザンテラス内). 
They operates from 7am to 11pm.  

Donut Factory
We are quite lucky to witness the production of their famous original glaze donuts in the morning and even luckier to taste them. Trust me, nothing beats the freshly made warm and soft original glazed Krispy creme. They taste so good when it's warm that it literally melt in your mouth. Try it once and you will agree that Krispy Creme makes one of the best donut in the world.

Cooling & Boxing

Yummy Breakfast
My bro and nephew likes the chocolates donuts while my mum and sis-in-law favors the cinnamon flavor ones because they are less sweet. My favorite? The original glazed donut.

Desserts for Breakfast anytime! =)

Tokyo Trip, May 2014 - Tokyo Disneyland (Easter & Spring Celebration) Part 2

After another round of shopping in one of the many Disney shops, we continue to explore and wander into FantasyLand.

Pooh's Hunny Hunt
It looks like you are walking right into a storybook, isn't it?

It's A Small World
This is quite similar to the one in Hong Kong.

Alice's Tea Party
The sky is getting dark but it's never too late to join in Alice's dizzy Tea Party. Spin-around-around!

Castle Carrousel
Another round - if it's not dizzy, it's ain't fun.

Snippets of the Night Parade
We really enjoy the lighting show in the night parade. It's so dazzling and enchanting! Can you recognize the characters?

Disneyland Fireworks - May 2014
After the parade, we went into one of the Disney stores (yes, to shop again) and I was choosing some tumbler and spoon where we heard the sound of fireworks and went out to catch the works.  

Heart Shape Fireworks
I'm super loving the heart shape fireworks at the end <3

Ice Cream Cone
Ending off the day with this strawberry cheesecake sundae from Meiji Ice cream confectionery in Disneyland before we head back.

We love Disneyland so much that we decided to re-visit Disneyland again on the second last day of our trip. Will continue on that later and next up will be DisneySea ~~*

Have a magical week ahead!
