Review: Neutrogena Deep Cleansing Lotion

How many of you have actually practices the double cleansing concept everyday? Double cleansing means that you clean your skin twice. The first time to remove makeup and the second with your normal facial wash. I was taught by my beautician that this may helps improve your skin condition and prevent clogged pores.
Today I gonna review my current staple skincare product. The Neutrogena Deep Clean Cleansing Lotion. I've been using cleansing lotion to double cleanse my face instead of cleansing oil as I found cleansing oil clogged my pores. (I guess is just for me)
I was first introduced by Chris to this product and was quite skeptical about it. But it turns out much more better than I expected. Let's see how.

Review: Cover Girl Lash Blast Mascara

If you've been using mascara any now and then, you must have heard about this Covergirl Lash Blast Mascara. It's one of the most talked and highly raved drugstore mascara. I know I'm a bit slow in catching up to this baby, because Covergirl is not available in Malaysia which is part of the very sad news. sadCovergirl Lash Blast Mascara patented volume-boosting formula and patent-pending brush are designed to max-out each and every lash, leaving you with the ultimate big lash look.

Packaging:This mascara comes with a fat orange tube which is a bit bulky and the handle too. The applicator is a bit large and hard to work with. It does take a few applications to get used to it. But there's something about the brush...
Cover Girl Lash Blast differ from the traditional bristle brush standard and uses a spiky rubber bristled brush instead. The brush is so huge which is about twice the normal size of a brush. While applying it, you have to be very careful in case that spiky applicator poke your eyes. I did once and it hurts.. sadFormula:
I got this mascara in Very Black. The formula is quite thick which is good for volumizing and lengthen my lashes. Most people said it may clumps but if only you used a lot. Just apply a sufficient amount and your lashes will look long and volume.

Reviews:
Granted that my lashes are naturally short, this mascara curl and lengthen my lashes very well. I also liked how it didn't weigh my lashes down despite it being quite thick. Besides, it seperates my lashes very well.

Here's some pics for your judgment:
One coat of this mascara:

(It defines and lengthens my lashes nicely)3rd coats of this mascara:
How do you think of it?

I love how my lashes look very natural with this. Most mascara tends to clump but not this. This is the best mascara to use if you're in hurry and does not want to look over-makeup.smile

The one I have now is non-waterproof but yet, it is smudgeproof. It can last me for more than 8hours in office without smearing.Besides, this mascara are easily to remove with any makeup remover. Hassle-free for busy and tired working woman. :P And the mascara doesn't leaves any flakes and trace on your eyes after removing which is good.

Rating: 4/5

Personally, I love this!! Despite of its bulky size and brush, this one is good enough. I would recommend this mascara for a natural everyday wear.

Since this is not available in Malaysia, I purchased this product from drugstore.com less than US$7 during sales. Alternatively, you can purchase it from spree in LYN.

Haul + My art

I had a tough week last week. My schedule was so tight that I didn't have much time to do any product reviews. Thus, I had an car accident last Sunday. Don't worry I'm fine now. Nothing much serious just a severe dent and scratches.

Referring to my previous post on Hada Labo 3 new (Super Hyluronic Acid) SHA moisturizing products? I bought two of the new products today!! razz

One thing I shall tell you all that I actually loves body art!! Well, I'm quite an 'art' person but my skin does not allow me to have any body art- tattoo. First my skin is sensitive, second I'm afraid of pain. (The needless does look scary to me). Alternatively, I did it myself using my makeup. Here's how it looks like:

Nice? My first attempt. (On my boy's hand XD)

Any of you adores body art? Share with me.
