Belated post - Sogo Thanksgiving week - Shu Uemura

IF you have been living in HK, you would know that Sogo (the Japanese Department store) has bi-annual sales in May and November for 10 days.

My friend was very excited and asked me to buy her some goods from Shu. I wasn't intended to buy anything at first. But the BA told me that there's some gift if I purchased HKD2000 or above. This really excites me.

Let's see what I have got:

The Base set. The shu uemura base is the new one. Along with a sample size of the tsubasa serum (the one that I always would like to try) and a toner. The sponge is very nice. I think this set is very worth it because it is only the price for the base, which is $360 I believe :)

Then I bought these 3 sets of shu uemura cleansing water in sample size. I have bought so many that I am thinking of doing one as giveaway. How does it sound?

This is the foam cleanser as a gift when purchased >$2000. 

With so many stuff (and more Christmas shopping and stock) I think I am considering using cleansers as my shower gel. Otherwise I will have too many stocks~~

The Christmas set for Shu Uemura is very attractive too.. Should I buy or should I not?

Holiday gift haul ideas - Sigma brushes

I went out this morning and when I got back home, this was on my table waiting for me to open it. 
I didn't expect this to arrive today because on the website, it said it takes 13-31 business days to arrive.
This was the one I got from the Black Friday sale, which was a great bargain because the shipping is free! (especially a good news for those living outside US)

The three eye brushes that I bought separately. These adds to my eye collection~

This was the surprise from Sigma. This eye pencil is good for eyeliner I think :)

My Mrs. Bunny set. This is my Christmas gift :) I put Sigma brushes on my wishlist for a while but didn't have chance to get it. I think this will enhance my makeup collection =]

If you have missed the chance buying Sigma brushes, no worries, there is another chance for you to buy. Sigma has put together more kits and more offers.
For example, the Make me Crazy Kit for $120

If you think this is too much, you can choose the travel kit
This is the Cities- London edition, cost $89

You can go to Sigma Beauty for more information
Don't forget to use the 10% discount code: 

Also, when you purchase more than $30, you get a special gift

Let's treat yourself and your best friends with Sigma brushes!

Okinawa haul

(sorry for the redness of the pictures, it was slightly off white balance)

Cotton on puff - I saw reviews that this was great, so I purchased one of these. It was about £2 for this packet.For the price, it is worth trying.

This was also £2 for the box of cotton wool.

Barrier repair mask. This is different from the ones I saw in Hong Kong before my trip. I think this is a new version of the HA (hydrunic acid)

Of coz, more masks:

This skincare set by Chifure is very cheap. It is about £4. The full size version is about 2-3 times this size and only selling for £5-7 for one bottle (200ml). If this is good, I am going to ask my friends to buy them for me from Japan.

Chasty brush - you can insert your favourite powder into this brush and apply the powder with the brush. This is for loose powder and touch up. This can reduce the amount of stuff you bring out and more handy.

Chacott Enriching powder - the powder is very soft and smooth. it provide a light coverage. For the price and quality, it is very worth buying. I am going to write a review on this when I have done a more throughout testing on the powder.

Sofina beaute sample kit review

This Sofina Sample kit was a swap with Nardine in Japan back a few months ago (her blog: Bunny and Spice). I have to say special thanks to her because she was looking everywhere for this sample kit for me. I was so touched when she told me that she found this for me.  I didn't have chance to test it when I first got it coz my Kose Infinity has not been used up. After I have hit the bottom of my Kose skincare, I have started using this and it didn't dehydrates my skin but doesn't have much big effect onto my skin.

The sample kit contains a toner, a night cream and a day cream with SPF 30, PA+++. This sunscreen is very good because it protects our skin from both UVA and UVB, which can cause sun burn to our skin.

I have used it for 2 weeks and about 25% left in the bottle. I am pretty impressed with the size and the amount of product it can be tested. I particularly find the toner is quite cleansing when I wipe it over my neck area. The cream was OK to be honest. I have to rave the suncreen day cream. It is not oily and prime my face before putting make up on. I do notice that my forhead is a bit flakey sometimes after using this cream, but overall it smooths the foundation and can last quite well.

I have to say that I won't give it a miss, worth trying if you have combination skin like me. However this combination might not be moisturising enough during winter times. Hope you find this little review helpful.

September Empties

It's a bit late for September empties.
I have emptied quite a few full size products (finally) and would like to share what I have emptied with you.

1. Benefits b.right! radiance skincare kit
i used to adore the skincare and changed my prospective of Benefits as a brand. I used to think that benefits is not very suitable for my skin type and the products are not that great in quality. What I paid for was the packaging. However, this skincare kit really hydrates my skin. Towards the end of the samples, I found that my skin starts burning and I stopped using it. I am kind of allergic to the fragrance added. I have then stopped and skin became much better. Due to the reaction happened to my skin, I am not going to repurchase this skincare range again.

2. Hadalabo hydrating lotion

This was raved on youtube and blog world in Asia. I bought this and the toner. I didn't feel much great experience with this lotion. I didn't find it moisturising my skin at all. I would give this a miss.

3 + 4. Kose Infinity lotion + toner

I have finally finished this set~ it lasted for 3-4 months. I think it does worth the money and I have stocked up spare ones~ I am going to update with some new range soon~

5. Ayuuri Rose shower gel

I enjoyed the scent of it. However, the packaging is not user friendly. I always pour too much shower gel and wasted because the shower gel was very liquid and runny. So far so good but I wouldn't repurchase for the price.

That's kind of the end of the empty list. There will be more updates on beauty and travel soon. I am trying to find a balance between work and blogging at the moment. Do you have any suggestions? As well as that, what have you emptied last month? Do link me or comment below :)

Cavern Journey on the boat

Cavern Journey on the boat
From the previous post (click here to review), I mentioned that I regretted from buying the joint pass. The reason was that, the queue was very long. There were only 2-3 boats operating at the same time. Each time we had to wait for 15 minutes for the next boat. Each boat can get about 10 people in. It was about 20 people queuing at the beginning. However, there was a big chunk of Muslin family came by. Some of their members queued for them while the others walked away. We waited for nearly 2 hours in order to get into the cavern.
Friendly tips: if you would like to visit more caverns, I would suggest that you go to this one first!
Cavern Journey on the boatit was a mining cavern before. This underboat journey is a journey where you can experience how the miners go to work everyday...

I was fortunate to see the caverns, but I would prefer camping around

Looking for the Cavern - The Devil ArseLooking for the Cavern - The Devil ArseLooking for the Cavern - The Devil ArseLooking for the Cavern - The Devil ArseLooking for the Cavern - The Devil ArseIt was very dark because it used to be a place of mining. The interior of the cavern is very wet. There were about 500 people living in this cavern and they were very poor. The living condition was very poor and there were lots of transmitted diseases back then. The water they drink is the water which drops from the top of the cavern and these water is used for washing, drinking, cooking... and in bad days, they had to drink the wee as well ><
After visiting this cavern, we went to another one.
