Texture: Milky
Scent: The usual sunscreen smell?
Nett Wt: 80g
Color: White
Price: RM29.90 (I think about that)

I think this is an okay sunscreen. Depending on my product usage before sunscreen.. If I've had moisturizing serum + my current Hada Labo moisturizer; I'd hate this sunscreen. It will without fail makes my skin feel sticky and shine all day. Ughhs. But then it means the claim that it is super hydrating is true..

However, if I replace the serum with Vichy Total Pore Resurfacing Essence, its then a happy family :) Just nice, not oily, not drying.

Clean & Clear Deep Action Refreshing Cleanser

Clean and Clear Says:

Too lazy to type it out, so I took a pic instead hehe.

Foxy Frangipani Says:
Texture: Foam
Scent: Fresh
Nett Wt: 85g
Color: Green, pastel
Price: RM5.90 (NP RM10.90)

I bought this just because I had a RM5 Guardian voucher, about to expire. Wasn't in the mood to get anything in particular, and because I could only use the voucher for purchase more than RM10, I was just looking at price tags (not a good practice).

I settled for this because, everyday we use cleansers, right? And, I've never really tried anything from Clean and Clear, so.. :)

The tube is 85g, but this lasted me months.. seriously I de-potted the very last bits into a plastic container and I still have it with me. I no longer use it now (still left 1/4) because it is already over the expiry date.

It foams very easily, I usually foams it up with a sponge, then apply it to my face. If I use this straight on, I sometimes find that little cream residue are left on my skin, probably stuck in my pores >_< weird..

It did not cause me any breakouts or drying up my skin. But if I skip my earlier oil cleansing step and use this, then leave on without toner etc for a couple of mins, I feel slight tightness.

Since it has expired, I'm using the leftover to clean my makeup brushes, sponges and even the sink heee. Does a great job!

However, I don't think I will repurchase this..

I quite like this mask! Don't know about the oxygen claim, but after each use I find my skin really plumped up. Less redness and more energetic. Easy to use too, as I usually shower during the 3-5 mins wait time.

Dove Beauty Body Wash - Firming Moisture  

Posted by: Foxy Frangipani in ,

Dove Says:
Elasticity is the key to firmer looking skin
Gentle lather cleanses away dirt while 1/4 moisturizing milk adds moisture in the layer where moisture is kept. Finger gliding touch after rinsing off is from the silky veil to protect your skin's moisture that is necessary to skin's elasticity. New uplifting fragrance.

Don't use it occasionally. In skincare, everyday is everything.

Foxy Frangipani Says:
Texture: Milky cream
Scent: Reallyy uplifting - fresh and green
Nett Wt: 200ml
Color: White
Price: RM6.90 (if not mistaken. I bought it at RM4.90 with coupon)

Dove is right. This body wash is really moisturizing. Though in cream, it does lather just nice for a really good cleanse. Its fresh scent relaxes me, not the type that would wake me up, but ahhh-so-clean-and-smells-nice-I-wanna-snuggle-in bed type. :D

Does not strip off moisture, but I don't think this body wash could firms skin. Hehe, no such luck. I note SLS is the second ingredient here, so am a little apprehensive about repurchasing..

I'm dipping my feet into the green living phase..

Korea Trip: Dining at Tosokchon  

Posted by: Foxy Frangipani in ,

Trip Advisor is taking ages to upload the review that I had to re-write twice; thanks to bad connection.

3 weeks ago, me and The Fiance went to Seoul for a holiday.

We listed this in our to-go after reading recommendations from Trip Advisor. It wasn't exactly easy to find, a kind gentlemen lead us there. Kamsa hamida!

Housed in a traditional setting, we had to take off our shoes, and sat on mats.
Not a problem!

On each table were 2 pots of different kimchi - I love love love those! I actually ate more kimchi than the samgaetang.

As for the samgaetang - delicious! Best was the rice inside the chicken, soaked with ginseng, very fragrant. And it was cooked with gingko nuts as well. Soup was warming and smooth.

They also served us with a cup of tea and ginseng wine.
We enjoyed our dining there, and hope to be back!
