I don’t know about you but i will always bring back LOTS  OF MASK during all my Taiwan’s trip..
There are so many varieties @ affordable prices..
This is why Taiwan ladies are mostly attractive as they take great pain to maintain their physical appearance..
No pain, no gain so everyone please remember to mask regularly!!!Generous TSS & Lush Beauty sent me 3 boxes of masks for review!
Introducing LoveMore!!!

LoveMore uses only imported ingredients from Australia, Brazil,  Japan,  France, Swiss & Scotland. This is why it is one of the popular & best selling mask brand in Taiwan. Their packaging is what differentiate from the rest and attract me the most – individual package is the design of envelopes. There are six type of mask to cater for different needs and they even have three types of 3D mask with ear-hooks (WOW!).

This brand is endorsed by Tiffany Hsu Wei-ning  (许玮宁) in Taiwan. I’m sure this gorgeous lady is familiar to all of us as she’s the Main actress in  《下一站幸福》.

My verdict: The texture of the mask is something which i like most as it not too watery. There is also no weird fragrance smell which turns me off.

I cannot comment much about the whitening effect as i have only used three pieces till date. But the masks did brighten my dull skin due to the late night mugging for the past 2 weeks. Skin is much more hydrated as my make up stays on better the next day.  Of all the mask, i love the White Crystal & Platinum Peptide Whitening Duo Lifting Mask the most. I’m digging the ‘lifting’ effect as i want a VV ‘face’.. Hehe! Also, this mask will be very secured on my face so i don’t have to worry that it will drop off while i am busy with something else… Most important of all, i did not experience any breakout from this product. Their masks are suitable for all skin type so don’t worry about it being too rich for you…

Personal tip on maximizing the 3D lifting effect (for the mask with HOOKS): Something which i love about the 3D mask will be the ‘Hooks’ on the mask has to promote lifting effects. It also helps to prevent ‘ mask misfit’ so the essence can penetrate into most part of your face.Simply just position the mask onto your face and hook it onto the both sides of your ears. Pull the hook at the chin up to your ears and spread the mask onto the entire face (after your daily skincare routine). Remember to pad the mask with both hands to achieve optimal results (leave it on for 15-20 minutes).

In the midst of my busy exam preparation, i managed to allocate some time to attend this awesome private event held by SECRETIVE..
Event is held at Marine Bay Sands (My first time stepping into this place)…
Upon stepping in the lobby, we were welcomed by friendly Kiyora who ushered us to the hotel roomLet the FUN begin!!!

Short introduction about Secretive: The company deals with organic skincare products and cosmetics. Some brands which they carries includes:  Elishacoy, LoveMore, Sexy Look, LUS, Age-lock, Yufit & LioeleThe big and comfy bed that welcomed us upon entering the room…

Started off the session with a short introduction over food.. The sweet ladies actually prepared finger food for everyone knowing that most of us rushed down after work.. 🙂

(Picture credits to Vivian as i forgot to take a picture of the food)

 After which, we were separated into 3 groups and my group was given hands on experience on the skincare products that they carry.

The girls in my group…

 Testing the all in one cleanser which promises to remove all make up including waterproof ones. Indeed it works and it doesnt leave my skin oily after washing off. The toner on the right is one of their best sellers… It gives a refreshing sensation when i applied onto my skin…

The YUMMY chocolate mask.. Not that it taste Yummy but it really smell heavenly. I was telling VIvian that i want to lick it off… hahaha! This will go into my TO BUY LIST..

Some other skin care products:

 

Next, we moved on to a mini game… Its a mix and match session and we (Me and Vivian) WON the game… 

 

This game is to kick start an introduction to a great BB cream – Elishacoy Diamond Shine BB cream… This one of a kind BB cream will create a 3D effect while caring your skin with its unique seven gemstones fusion (Amethyst, Pearl, Coral, Tourmaline, Jade, Diamond and Amber )… Containing SPF27/PA , this two in one make up will give you a dewy/shiny glow while concealing your flaws. Due to its organic composition, it is suitable for all skin type. It feels light and non oily on my skin.. I LIKE! 🙂

See the ‘bling bling’? This BB cream will come in handy during clubbing.. But it will also be suitable for daily use.. Just dust on a layer of loose powder and you will be able to cover up the shimmers…

Next, we moved on to the comestics counter. Check out different make up that they carry:

2 personal favorite… Cheek tint which It gives you a long lasting and natural looking glow..

The Mineral powder that is so fine and glides on so easily…

The ladies having fun with the friendly staff… The 1.5 hours session just zoomed past and i truly enjoyed myself….

Bio-essence BB cream, A Girl’s Best friend

(Sponsored Review)

This parcel greeted me when i woke up on a cold Saturday morning!
Thank you Thesamplestore (TSS) for giving me this opportunity to review the three Blemish Balm (BB cream) from Bio-essence.

 

 

Here’s a closed up photo of the three types of BB cream which i will be reviewing in three different post

 

Now i will provide a overview of the Bio-essence BB Cream Series which were sent to me (Left to Right) 

(L) Bio Platinum BB cream:   Whitening
(M) Aqua BB Cream:   Moisture/Hydration
(R) Bio Multi-effect BB Cream:  
Coverage (Will be covered in this post)

 

 Bio Multi-Effect BB Cream 



This BB cream is a multi-effect BB cream (yes, all in ONE) which provides the following eight benefits:
(Its special ‘skin pampering’ ingredients includes Bio Energy Fluid, Ginkgo Biloba extract, Ginseng and Angelica)

1) Conceal (strongest coverage out of the 3 bb creams)
2) Sun Block (SPF 25 coverage)
3) Skin Repair
4) Moisturizer
5) Nourishment
6) Oil control
7) Skin whitening
8) Reduces Wrinkles and Lines

Texture

 

I’m someone who likes sheer foundation/BB cream so this BB cream is quite thick IMO but its concealing power is really good (you can read about the small experiment which i did later). Despite being thick, i find that this BB cream is very easy to blend which makes application a breeze. Unlike some BB cream which is thick and you will eventually end up with very uneven make up because it is so hard to spread it over your face. It doesn’t feels heavy on the skin once absorbed and it blends into my skin (You don’t actually see two tones between my face and neck).  There is a slight shine but it can be covered up with a layer of loose powder.. Btw, i am using Chanel 50 Poudre so this product will definitely be suitable for most Asian ladies. 

One tip: To achieve a optimal and  even application, pat the BB Cream gently on the face (try not to spreading it so that the product will be more evenly blend). You can also apply the BB cream in the same manner onto your neck..

Coverage

The concealing power of this BB cream is really superb. In a survey done by HK Fashion & Beauty Magazine, the Bio Multi Effect BB Cream emerge as the winner among 6 other competitors BB cream which adheres most closely to the skin for flawless coverage.

Let’s put the cream to the test! When i applied it onto an orange, the concealing power of the BB Cream can cover up its black pockmarks..

Now, see my before and after picture

I don’t have to put any concealer.. Just the BB cream alone can cover up my post acne scars! Whooo! 🙂

Oil Control

I have oily skin so by mid day my face will be oily. The oil control for this cream is very good as only my nose is oily during mid day.. My make up is very intact and natural still after lesson at 10.30pm (I applied the BB cream at 7.30am)..

Overall Rating: 3.5 / 5 (The BB cream will be good for people who wants a good coverage but i will prefer a sheer BB cream)

Read about the review on the Aqua BB cream HERE

Thank you Bio-essence and TSS for blessing me with the nice products! 😀

Sponsored Post: Bio-essence Aqua BB cream

This is one of the BB cream which i have received from thesamplestore.. It is not required for us to review this but i will like to share this short review in case anyone is interested in getting this BB cream.. 🙂

Bio-essence Aqua BB cream 


 
What’s so special about this BB cream?1) Helps with Hydration and seal in moisture
2) Control oil and help prevent pimples
3) Even out skin tone and provides natural coverage
4) Refreshing and cares for the skin

Special ingredients:
1) Tanaka (helps to cool down the skin, control blemish and oil secretion)
2) Hyaluronic Acid (Deeply hydrated and ‘trap’ in moisture)
lastly, Bio Mineral Amino Acid Essence and other rich minerals to complement  this BB cream

Texture

Positive: This BB cream has a light fragrance and it is light weight. I find it very easy to spread evenly over my face and it is not too oily… Unlike some BB creams, i do not have to dust on loose powder to cover up the shine.  

Negative: Coverage is a bit too sheer to cover up some post acne scars. I have to use concealer to cover up some obvious marks.

After Application:

(with BB cream, Blusher and Eye-liner)
 
 
Personally i find that this BB cream to my liking as it is not very thick and oily.. This is an important point for my acne prone skin as i do not wish to have clogged pores which will eventually lead to acne.. As my skin is dry on certain parts, hydration factor plays an important part to prevent flaking make up..  It goes on smoothly and there is a refreshing sensation when i applied it on. As you can find from my photo, there is no obvious shine so i do not have to dust on loose powder..  What i like most is that this BB cream blends in perfectly and i do not have different tones when compared to my neck.. With blusher and eye-liner, i am ready to face the world.. 🙂

I will rate this product 4/5 (Sheer with good oil control ability)…
