Teenage Gorgeous You 2016 Finals


Top 2
03white_background

A few days back I attended the Teenage Gorgeous You 2016 finals to support both Benjamin (@benvoda) and Cheow Yi (@cheowster). In case you're new here, I've blogged about how much I look up to them as my competitor back then before I drop out of the competition. Link here: http://www.donnlicious.com/2016/07/teenage-gorgeous-you-social-challenge.html

Its pretty sad that I had to drop out of the competition due to my work commitment but nevertheless, I'm glad that I was able to give Ben a helping for one of his challenges. (:

When they announced Ben as the 1st runner up, I was a tad nervous cuz I really hope and wanted Cheow Yi to take home the grand prize, cuz she really put in ALOT of effort into her blog posts. And when the host announced her as the winner, I was overjoyed. Like a proud daddy seeing his daughter top the whole cohort.

Overall, I'm really really proud of Ben and Cheow Yi for coming out as the top 2 winners for this year's TGY Social Challenge. At least you guys won it fair and square. Unlike some people who had to buy their likes to act as though they have a lot of followers engagement when OBVIOUSLY most of their likes are fake. Urghh! I can't even!!! -.-

P/S: Don't mind me, but I feel a bit unfair to the rest of the contestants who really give it their all and effort for all the challenges. #JustSaying

Tiramisu Hero

Dinner with Ben and Angie at Tiramisu Hero and I must say, we nearly died waiting for our food there cuz it was served SO SLOW!!!!!!!!!!!

The 3 of us talked for quite a bit and was so glad that this whole TGY thing is over. Hahaha! And TBH, Ben and I were only online friends till the day we decided to meet out for his 313 @ Somerset challenge. Hahaha!!! I know.... How can right?!?!?! But yea, #SadTruth

I mean, we both know one another's existence but just didn't meet in real life. We only talked via our social media and thats all. But we do have alot of mutual friends cuz #BLOGGERS. Hahahahaha!!!

Ending this post with my outfit for that day. Ben says that I wore until sibei formal for the event itself. Hahahaha!!!

Androgyny


A white_background

So nowadays is all the PokemonGO hype and its really nice seeing people from all races, gender and age coming out together and play this mobile game. To be honest, I didn't expect it to be this much of a phenomenon. Plus, I didn't expect myself to get hooked on to the game that I literally went out of my house all the way to Bishan Park in hopes of catching some rare Pokemon. Even my mom plays it. LOL!!!

Recently I'm into the all androgyny outfits. I mean, with all the weight I've lost, I definitely have to put on those clothes that I couldn't in the past right?!?! For this outfit, the top was from Oh So Fickle, and my "not so ripped jeans" is from Forever 21. Bag is from a friend who got it from the White Milano 2016 fashion show earlier this June, and shades are from Stylenanda Korea.

Korea 2016 Day 5

Okay. Hello everyone. As you can see this post is slightly different from the rest. I've decided to try doing a pictorial kinda post for my Korea 2016 Day 5 instead of the usual travelogue-ish kind.

So yea. Woke up kinda late cuz my friend left my apartment at around 6am?!?! and I need to get my mandatory 8 hours of sleep. Hahah!!!

I was kinda lost cuz my friends have all went back to Singapore already and so I'm left all alone in Korea. The feeling kinda sucks though. So my plan was to give Common Ground a visit cuz its like a must visit place when you're in Korea, right?!?!?!

XXX

When I was onboard the train, it started pouring and it really dampens my mood even more luh!!! So when I alighted I make my way to where Common Ground is located at start taking pictures of the place. From the exterior it looks really cool. Like those blue containers surrounding the place. Furthermore, Common Ground was also featured in one of SISTARS MV --- Shake It.

After I'm done exploring the place, I am clueless of where to go, so I went to Gangnam to continue where I left off the previous time. To my disappointment, the rain got heavier as I reached Gangnam and all I could do is to have my lunch there and thats it. Pretty wasted though.

As much as I don't wanna waste the entire day, I went to somewhere nearer to my apartment -- Myeong Dong to do some shopping. It didn't rain over there and weather was pretty cooling. Spent over $100 at Nature's Republic and I totally didn't expect that to happen.

After I'm done shopping I went back to my apartment and bought fried chicken and YouTube-d for the rest of the night. It's pretty boring if I were to say for my Day 5 cuz I'm a slight sad that my friends weren't there with me anymore. But do keep a look out for Day 6 cuz I did alot more things. Hahaha! Stay tuned.

3CE White Milk Series Review


So its about a month plus since I'm back from my Korea trip. Taking a break from all my travelogue posts. I'm here today to review the new addition (sort of) to the 3 concept eyes family.
A eh160408-milkall_en
The other day when I helped my friend (Joyce @JoyceForensia) to get hers from the Stylenanda outlet at Hongdae, I didn't really pay much attention to these products. Until the very last night in Korea, I was wandering around Hongdae and I decided to pay Stylenanda another visit. This time round I went inside, with the only purpose to take more pictures with the free photobooth they had. HAHAHAHA!!!

Just when I was walking around the store, I take a second look at the 3CE White Milk Series, and I thought, is it really that good? So I went out of the store and start googling, and I was quite amazed by the things these products claimed. So I thought, why not buy to try it myself?!?! So here I am now giving my verdict and review after using it for close to a month, cuz I tried googling and researching for reviews and the results I got is close to zero. Even if have its like in Korean so.... I thought why not I do a review myself. RIGHT?!?!?!!

White Milk Pack To Foam
Seriously, this shit is AWESOME! NO KIDDING! Its actually a clay that acts as cleanser to cleanse your skin, giving you a more refined pores and better looking skin. It can also be used as a pore patch where you just apply only at your nose or T zone area. When applied, its like a cream kind of texture, but after leaving it on for 5mins, it will start to turn into clay like.

What I usually do is when I apply, I leave it on for about 7-10mins. Then I'll use my clarisonic to clean it off my face. The after feeling is pretty refreshing and its really gentle on the skin. Unlike any other cleanser that I've used, this doesn't give me any skin irritation cuz I have really really sensitive skin. Thus it can be washed off easily as well, cuz I've used some clay mask/cleanser before and after you leave it for like 5mins, it starts to harden and its pretty hard to wash it off. So yea, this product did my money some justice.

I have to say, this really does wonders. I have acnes and blemishes when I was in Korea, and I started using this Pack To Foam when I came back. Now the blemishes have become less visible and pimples are also disappearing. I wouldn't say by using this will give you instant results. It takes time but it definitely works. I really regret buying only 1. Hahaha!!!

White Milk Cream
Dermatologically tested for sensitive skin people like you and me. This product is a whitening cream which whitens your skin INSTANTLY. I tried it once on my face and I think its because I'm relatively tanned so it looks really weird on me. I think this product suits people who are more light skinned. This product can also be used to set your make up. Best of all, it doesn't get washed off easily by water. (not sure about sweat though) LOL! But I've tried washing it off with water, it doesn't come off unless I use it with soap. So I guess its a good thing for you women out there. It also comes with a mini spatula for hygiene purposes. But if you don't mind you can just use your hands or fingers la.

Just for this review, I tried it on my hand and took a photo for comparison. (NOT THE ABOVE PHOTO) It doesn't really show here cuz as you know... I'm really tanned. So you couldn't really see the difference. If I'm not wrong, you can also use this as a overnight cream. Just apply it before you sleep to let your face feel moisturized the whole entire night while you're asleep.

So here's the comparison. The one that I applied the white milk cream is on the right hand. Once again, (I have to keep repeat this) I'm relatively tanned so you can't really see the obvious difference. But from my eye aka LIVE from my own eyes, you could see the difference. Just that I don't know why it doesn't translate in the image. Hmmm....

White Milk Sleeping Mask
This is what I've been using for my skin care routine for the past 1 month. To make sure my skin is hydrated and moisturised while I'm asleep, I will apply the sleeping mask and leave it for my face the entire night after using the Pack To Foam to cleanse my face. Its non sticky nor greasy so when you sleep it doesn't stains your pillows or bedsheets.

To be honest, I'm not sure if this works the same as the White Milk Cream??? The only difference between these 2 product is that the White Milk Cream whitens your skin and the Sleeping Mask doesn't. If anyone who's reading this happens to know, please enlighten me. Thanks. :)

So in conclusion, I will say the Pack To Foam is definitely worth the buy. It really helps lighten my acne scars and blemishes and now my face look less horrendous than it was before.

If you're a girl I think the White Cream Milk will suit you? Cuz it really lightens your skin tone as shown on their website and it helps cover your blemishes as well. Good for it when you're going out on a date with your boyfriend or so. Or if you have a photoshoot the next day and your face decides to screw you up on the very last min, maybe this could save your life?!?!

If you're getting the Pack To Foam I will suggest you to get the Sleeping Mask as well. Cuz I've used it together with the Pack To Foam as my skincare regime and it might or might not help it lightening the scars and blemishes. But it definitely leaves my skin hydrated and moisturised throughout the night. So yeap. Worth the buy.

So yeap. That's about it. Above is the price range that they're selling for all 3 products. I didn't buy the White Milk Cushion cuz well, obviously that is like a powder, its for girls and its also quite expensive. So I didn't buy that. But it seems interesting though. But on the other hand, I did help Joyce to buy it though, maybe you guys can wait for her review to be up?
