I went shopping yesterday at Watsons and as usual I took my sweet leisurely time studying the products one by one. And then something caught my attention. I've never seen it before. Looks cute - check price tag - OMG - under $20. Grabbed it and studied more into details.. Be Gorgeous Hand and Nail Cream. Did I tell you I'm an all time sucker for hand creams? Chucked into my shopping cart. The Claim: Be Gorgeous Hand & Nail Cream provides excellent hydration & protection throughout the day to maintain your natural moisture balance for soft & smooth hands. - Contains Royal Jelly (Bee's Milk) My Findings: It is light yellowish color, with subtle fragrance that didn’t choke my nose. Absorbs pretty fast without sticky residues. My laptop keypad loves it! Looked down and spotted Be Gorgeous Body Lotion @ $14.90. Into the shopping cart as well. And then huh? Another tub of Body Butter @ $15.90. No!!! No more... next time pls. The Claim: Be Gorgeous Body Lotion is suitable for all skin types and with its natural nutrients and moisturizers it will give you soft, smooth and younger looking skin. My Findings: Same color, but slightly runnier than the hand cream – sinks into my skin very well. No sticky residues. Good for day use as it doesn’t make me feel oily. More Be Gorgeous product when I came to the bath and shower section. Be Gorgeous Shower Foam and Be Gorgeous Body Scrub. They are priced at $12.90 and $16.90 respectively (if my memory did not fail me). Didn’t get them as I still have a drawer full of shower gels and scrubs *sheepish grin*. The range is made in Thailand exclusively for Watsons. I’m happy with both products :) Update: I found out there are 8 products in the range; from Newswit. I WANT THE LIP BALM!!!

Tonight I bid you goodbye CAAE. It has been a marvellous few months (though it felt like years) with you. I don't know if I'm happy or sad to see you go.. - Mental I know. I have to admit, you didn't impress me when we first met. I was more interested in the pink glossy pouch that you came together with! All I saw in you was, err.. you were brown and gooey and.. the thought of slathering you onto my lids was just.. a lil icky. And weighing at 15ml, it dawned to me then that you're never gonna leave me anytime soon. Sigh, how wrong was I! Its true what ppl say, do not judge a book by its cover! After our initial lack of chemistry introduction, one fine day I’ve decided to squeeze you a lil onto my finger.. and dabbed dabbed.. and raised brow.... dabbed dabbed... a grin started to appear on my face! I liked you then and there! What I love about you: Texture: crème-gel that didn’t suffocate my skin. Feels great when massaged gently for lines prevention. Color: honestly, as long as it wasn’t black or blue or red! Size: you came in a 15ml trial tube, not in a jar. So its uber easy to carry you around. Apart from that, you kept my eye areas really soft and hydrated! Even under air conditioning at work. No sign of stickiness, didn’t ruin my makeup. And the bonus – didn’t give me milia seeds. Sigh, so what there not to love about you...? Nothing.. Why am I not repurchasing you? Because, I strayed a little and now I have to deal with some Garniers and an Estee Lauder. *looking guilty*
