Some days, they are just the same
Photo taken in November 2016
After trying out the SKII FTE for my third time in life and I'm hooked. Maybe it's just I'm over doing with the fermented products, but I love seeing my skin turn inside out every day and it's started glowing nicely. Since SKII is ridiculously hefty for my wallet, I decided to get some stuff that is considered "dupes" for SKII. Things like Missha, Secret Key and such to see which are the ones that is the most similar to SKII with the amount that doesn't make a dent to my wallet.

I will do a comparison blogpost after I have tried all the ones that I got and I'm still waiting for some to arrive at my doorstep. But right now, I am mainly using SKII FTE and I'm in love. My skin texture had improved a lot and the skin had become more radiant. Even my boyfriend noticed that my skin is glowing.

So, this is my skin update. I will do a morning routine soon on this blog so stay tuned.

In my life, some stuff is happening. I'm almost finishing up my Intermediate Japanese language and I still haven't looked for job properly yet. I need to start looking for more jobs before July comes. I got 2 months so go me!! I also got JLPT soon in July, excited yet nervous at the same time. I want to get full marks on the JLPT!!! So, for that, I need to study more!

In my love life, things are going steady. My boyfriend and I haven't met for quite a while and I miss him. I miss bear hugging him but I think he's taking leave on Friday so I'm also excited for that. We're going to watch Avengers on Friday!

My friend from Japan is visiting Singapore and I'm so excited to meet her. I'm thinking of where to bring her and what to eat with her so I need to think more on that! I also meeting another one of my friend for catching up. It's been a while I meet her and I'm also looking forward to that.

I'm back to digital bullet journaling. Although I don't bullet journal as often now, I still enjoying putting my thoughts on some stuff and making sure that everything is on check. I'm also writing my blog posts on a daily mode except weekends since I want to enjoy my time studying or catching up with the bf.

Studies wise, I hate particles in Japanese grammar. They are so confusing and I'm doing my best to understand them totally. Will do a lot more revisions on the particles before my exam comes. Other stuff in the language, I'm fine with it although I can't remember properly for the lessons that I learned a while ago. If you ask me, I can still answer but I want to know without even asking.

Yup! so this is what has been going on with my life. Most of the time, it's the same but sometimes they sprinkle a little bit of sparkles on my everyday life that makes me enjoy my life. Though there are still a lot of things that I want to improve to make me happy but I'm thinking of doing step by step. I am trying to be the positive person instead of filled with negativity, jealousy or agony. Still trying to save money which has been failing miserably though. That's also another area that I want to improve. Not spending a lot of money and save up for the future or for my upcoming travels.

Etude House is the very first brand that I started my skincare routine with and I always tend to love the products from them since I was very young. When I was exposed to the unlimited amount of brands from different countries, for some reason, I stopped using the products from them. So, this mask series is a reconciliation to this brand and see what type of variety this brand offers in terms of masks. Masks to me are a necessity these days. I have been using them since young but this year is the first time I really started using sheet masks every day. And I am really impressed with the results. Of course, sheet masks do not fix everything but it is a nice supplement for the skin to become radiant and moisturise the skin. It also acts as a relaxation time for me while focusing on my skincare after a long day.

According to Etude House, this mask claims to deep moisturise the skin.

Ingredients - Water, Dipropylene Glycol, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Glycerin, Methylpropanediol, Sorbitan Stearate, Butylene Glycol, 1,2-Hexanediol, Sorbitan Sesquioleate, Arginine, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Sucrose Cocoate, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Zingiber Officinale (Ginger) Root Extract, Coptis Chinensis Root Extract, Dehydroacetic Acid, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate, Disodium EDTA, Boswallia Serrata Gum, Sodium Hyaluronate, Hydrogenated Lecithin, Pinus Palustris Oil, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil, Citrus Nobilis (Mandarin Orange) Oil, Centella Asiatica Extract, Ceramide NP, Eucalyptus Globulus Leaf Oil, Phytosteryl/Octyldodecyl Lauroyl Glutamate, Citrus Limon (Lemon) Fruit Extract, Juniperus Mexicana Oil


The sheet is a cottony type material that is a bit thicker than the Innisfree ones. I really enjoy the thick materials since they are not easy to tear and they retain more moisture in the mask. The fit is also nicely fitted on my face. I am a bit sad that their sheet masks are smaller than what I am used to from the Innisfree. But it's okay since the mouth holes on the Etude House is much smaller which moisturises the skin around the mouth area much better.
In the Etude House line, they have 3 types of essence and the ceramide is considered to be a emulsion type essence. Since it is the emulsion type essence, the essence is a milky consistency and it is much thicker than what I am used to in the Innisfree ones. It is a totally new experience for me and I really enjoyed it. Although they don't have a lot of essence leftover in the packet to put on my neck and arms so it is a big con for me. There is 20ml of essence in the packet but it does not look like it got 20ml of essence. 
They recommend me to leave the mask on for 10-20 minutes. So, as usual, I left it on for 20 minutes and I was surprised to see that the mask is very easy to dry up. I was disappointed as they dry up so fast and that there is no leftover essence for me to reapply during the masking time.

After using the mask, I definitely feel a bit of moisturising but since they dry up so quickly, I am not sure whether the mask itself is actually moisturising for me. Also, the emulsion type essence is kinda difficult to get absorbed in the skin and left my skin a bit sticky afterwards.

Overall, I will give this mask a 3 stars out of 5. I liked it but I wished they get absorbed in the skin properly.
Price - SGD2
I got the entire line of mask during the sale for 50% off and I got all 19 types of masks. Excited to try them all and review them all!

I started a no spend challenge at the first week of April and I want to try it for 2 months, till the end of May. I am trying to save money but as you know I love shopping and trying new types of makeup and skincare so I always ended up buying things that I don't really need. I tried minimalism a while back and I really enjoyed it for the period of time that I tried and want to go back to staying simple and living with less.

My current lifestyle is kind of unhealthy. I love watching movies and spend time in front of my computer. Whether it'd be watching movies or blogging or editing my photography. All in all, it is really unhealthy. With that, I get exposed to a lot of things and advertisements. Usually, I can control the urge to shop but when I was interested in something, I couldn't control the urge. So, this time round, the reason why I am doing this "No spend challenge" is to save money since I bought an entire set of skincare a while back and it costed me a lot of money.

With my no spend challenge, I want to put some rules.
- I am not allowed to buy electronics.
- I am not allowed to buy makeup unless it needs replacing due to using up the product (which I don't need at the moment)
- I am not allowed to buy skincare unless it needs replacing.
- I am not allowed to buy clothes except for my work clothes for interviews and such. But that is limited to 2 clothes and must not spend over SGD100.
- I am not allowed to buy some trinkets that I don't need.

Things that I am allowing myself for during this challenge.
- I am allowed to eat out once a week.
- I am allowed to take cab once a week.
- I am allowed to buy groceries.
- I am allowed to recharge my transport card and I am allowed to pay my bills and my school fees and my rent.

I started around 2 weeks already and I spent around SGD13 on things that I was allowed to spend on skincare item.

I bought Innisfree Green Tea Seed Serum for SGD13. It was originally SGD37 but I spent my points on the item and I only paid SGD13 for the serum. Although I didn't need it but my previous green tea seed serum ran out and I really enjoyed using it.

Another product is that I bought a new shirt. Although I did say that I am not allowed to buy a shirt but I wanted a new shirt for a while now. I haven't buy a shirt in more than 4 months and I really wanted one so I will not be buying any shirt for a while now that I got one.

With this 2 weeks, I have taken 2 cab rides from my home to school with SGD7 each trip. I have not yet eaten out during this 2 weeks and I went to 2 trips of groceries at the cost of SGD22 combined.

I will do another update on another 2 weeks or so. I hope this will inspire you to save your money and not spend so much.

No Spend Challenge - till end of May + 2 weeks update
Review: BioAqua Aquaringer Skin Clinic Mask ★★★★☆

Well, I bought this mask from the same shop called Mgou in Myanmar while I was visiting there a while back. I decided to use this mask since I am having a bit of dehydrated skin in the last couple of days and I wanted to increase my hydration and moisture levels of my skin. As usual, the price is 500MMK which is around SGD0.50 from the currency exchange and I was shocked on how interesting some brands from China have been making/knocking-off some korean sheet masks.

According to the mask, it is recommended for dry skin and will repair the skin while keep moisture in the skin and add water into the skin. It also increases nutrition for the skin and potentially repair the wrinkles. It claims to have high purity hyaluronic acid which has excellent moisturising power to penetrate to the skin till the underlying skin and replenish the skin with abundant moisture and improve the skin roughness and lock the water in the skin to form a protective film while eliminating annoying discomfort tight skin and make the skin smooth and soft and supple to the touch.

Wow, it claims a lot. Let's see how it held up.

The mask material is a thin material that is not cotton or paper. It is more towards tencel but a lot thinner and soft to touch. The mouth hole is not too big or not too small and the eyes holes are a bit big in size. The mask is wrapped in the external layer of plastic protective layer and soaked in a lot of moisture. Even though the mask is thin, it is not easy to tear which I really like and it retains the moisture pretty well.

The mask is soaked in the watery essence and is dripping while taking out from the packet. It is quite messy while applying it since the mask is so drippy but once it is set on the face, it won't move. I also love the fit of the mask. It is nicely fit on my face and has a very large area to cover my big face. There is 30ml of essence in this mask and there is still a lot of essence left over even after I removed the mask.

As usual, I left the mask on for 20 minutes. At the end of 20 minutes, I saw only a few bit of outer layer of the mask is drying up a bit but most of the mask is still wet. But I removed it before it gets too dry. After removing the mask, I patted the essence on my face and I moved on with my life. The leftover essence is easily absorbed in the skin after 5 minutes or so and keep the skin nice and soft without being too sticky. I left my skin is hydrated and soft and bouncy to the touch.

I was impressed by it. So, overall, I will give this mask a 4 stars out of 5. It is a good mask and I love the way it makes my skin feels. I could see a glow from my skin while moisturising my skin. Moreover, the price is really cheap. Although I won't say it's an excellent choice of mask ingredients wise since I can't read the ingredients list, but if you are on a budget, I would recommend it to you since I don't see any major changes with my eyes.

I was looking for a good small backpack since it is in trend and I genuinely loved small bags since I was young. I wanted a bag that is small and yet can fit my camera since I wanted to bring it everywhere and take more photos of everything I see. I was really excited when I see this bag from Lazada and it was around SGD6.30. 

I was looking around and decided that this bag looked simple and can fit quite a bit so I decided to get this bag. A few weeks later, it came and I was really excited that I can finally use this bag a lot. I also bought some other backpack and it was more than double the price but it looked really cute so I will write a review of it again soon. For today, I want to focus on this bag.
This bag is made of nylon and it is kinda water resistant. It looked really cute so I immediately started using it. To my surprise, this tiny bag can fit quite a bit. I even brought this bag to my trip back to Myanmar and I used it everywhere.

I really love the fact that it can fit my camera, my wallet, my phone, some of my medications, my power bank and my cables, my extra batteries for my camera and some of my makeup items and it looked like it can fit even more. I really love the way it sits on my shoulders and it didn't give me some uncomfort or anything. For the price, it was really amazing. It was SGD6 when I bought it and I have been using everyday for a few weeks.

So, fast forward a few weeks, I noticed that this bag is kinda worn out. One of the strap was torn. I believe it was my fault since it was kinda heavy almost all of the time. So, only after a few weeks, I am planning to part ways with it. Though it was a good use for a few weeks, I felt it was too short for my liking. 
Credit: All photos are from the Lazada seller's shop 
I will give this bag a 3 stars out of 5. I loved it but I wished they lasted for at least a month. It was a good SGD6 spend. I don't mind trying again and put lesser things to make it not this fragile. If you are curious, I recommend it.

Review: Korean Nylon Female Small Bag from Lazada ★★★☆☆
Review: Hamj Brightening Mask ★★★★★

Today, I want to try the continuation of the mask that I was so impressed by from the yesterday's post. Although it's been a few days since I tried that mask and I wanted to try again today so here's my review.

I was so impressed by the moisturising one so much that I wanted to go back to Myanmar and buy more stuff from there. Again, I got this mask when I was in Myanmar a while back. I found it at a shop called Mgou in Yangon and I was intrigued by the amount of sheet masks that the shop carried. All of them that I saw were knockoffs from famous Korean skin care brands and they are priced at a ridiculous cheap prices. This mask that I got from that shop is priced at 500MMK which is around less than SGD0.50 per mask. There are other masks that costs more than 500MMK but the ones that I got were all at 500MMK. According to the mask, it is for moisturising and hydration for the skin and the back of the mask says apply for 10-15 minutes.


As I mentioned in the yesterday's post, I was surprised on how thin the mask is. It was protected by a plastic layer and it is very easy to remove and apply on the face. Even if the mask material is really thin, it is very easy to spread and put on face as well as it does not tear while applying.

The mask is soaked in so much essence, 25ml of essence to be exact. The mask is soaked a lot so just make sure to apply the mask in the sink since it is kinda drippy. There is a very tiny bit of scent in the packet but when you apply it on the mask, it doesn't linger throughout.

I put the mask in the fridge for a few days. I started doing that for the masks that I want to try since it will be very cooling for my skin for a much refreshing feel. The fit is nice and fit and it is very big for my face which I like with the small hole for the mouth which I really love.

Since I knew I can leave the mask for quite a long time, I left this mask for 35 minutes and removed the mask. I could still feel the moisture in the mask and it didn't dry out like other masks. I, again, was so impressed.

So, overall, I will give this mask a 5 stars out of 5. I love this mask. It does left the skin so moisturised as well as very soft and tender when touching, I saw a little bit of brightening effect but it didn't last long. It was so moisturising and my skin felt very smooth. Although I already applied my usual skincare and I applied the mask after the skincare had completely soaked into the skin and applied this mask. So far, after using, I haven't broken out or get clogged pores so I will definitely repurchase when I get back to Myanmar. So excited to try other stuff from this brand.

I got this mask when I was in Myanmar a while back. I found it at a shop called Mgou in Yangon and I was intrigued by the amount of sheet masks that the shop carried.

This mask that I got from that shop is priced at 500MMK which is around less than SGD0.50 per mask. There are other masks that costs more than 500MMK but the ones that I got were all at 500MMK. According to the mask, it is for moisturising and hydration for the skin and the back of the mask says apply for 10-15 minutes.

When I first opened the mask, I was really surprised that it has a protective layer for the mask which is made of plastic. Then the mask is soaked in the tremendous amount of essence that is not watery. It is more of a thicker consistency that soaks the mask. There is 25ml of essence in the mask which is a lot and even when I applied the mask on the face, there are a lot of essence leftover in the mask. There is very faint fresh scent that is from the mask but when I put it on, I can't smell anything.

The biggest surprise is the mask material. I cannot describe properly of the mask material. It is very thin and it is soaked in the essence. It is definitely not cotton or tencel or hydrogel. It is very interesting.

I thought since it is so thin, there would be some trouble putting on the mask. As long as you could find the first place to unfold the mask, it is surprisingly easy to unfold and apply on the mask. The protective plastic layer makes the mask very easy to unfold properly.

I love the fact that the mask is quite thick. Bare in mind that I have quite big face and it covers all of the face plus some leftover. It is easy to stretch and apply when necessary. The eye holes are quite big which is always nice and the mouth hole is small. It basically covers all the skin around the mouth which I really love.

I was planning to leave it on for 20 minutes although they recommend me to leave it on for 10-15 minutes. But even after 20 minutes mark, the mask doesn't show signs of drying up. So I continued to leave it on for another 10 minutes. Even after I left it on for 30 minutes, almost all of the areas are still very soaked in the essence. Only around the forehead is starting to dry up a bit so I removed the mask at 35 minutes mark. 

I was really impressed! I have never seen a mask like this before. I'm writing this blogpost right after I used the mask and the essence dries up pretty fast and leave a matt finish. My skin feels so soft and hydrated after using. I will see how my skin reacts tomorrow morning but as of right now, I am loving this mask. 

It is so affordable and I love the mask material while moisturising my skin properly so I will give this mask a 5 stars out of 5. It is so rare that I give a product 5 stars but I am impressed with this one. I still have another type of mask from the same range so I will try again soon and write a review for that one as well.

Review: Hamj Hydrating Mask ★★★★★
Review: SK-II Facial Treatment Sheet Masks ★★☆☆☆
I was really looking forward to use them since they are really expensive and have a lot of good reviews on how amazing they are. I will do a update of this sheet mask since I want to really up my skincare game. I did the magic ring test a while back and I was shocked on how my skin was looking with the test so I wanted to get it better. I have had these masks since I tried the SK-II Facial Treatment Essence a few years back and I was just hoarding them just because I want to use them on a very nice occasion. Well, a few years has passed but there is no special occasion so I decided to whip out one of this mask to try.

According to SKII site, it claims that your skin will be immediately and exceptionally immersed in moisturising, resulting in a visibly radiant and crystal clear complexion. If you buy from the SK-II counters, one mask is around SGD23 but they are almost always included in the welcome kits or Pitera kits that SKII sells.

Key Ingredient - Pitera
The mask texture is not too thin nor thick and it is a soft material. It is made of cotton that is soaked in Pitera. Since the mask is not too thin, it is not easy to get tear while application.

The fit is nice and easy to apply. It fits my face well and it has nice and big eye holes yet small mouth hole as I like. Although the mask itself is a little bit small for my face, it's not a big deal for me.
While masking.... 
The mask is soaked in the essence and the essence is not too thin or thick. It is not as watery but is easy to absorb in the skin. I was really excited about this mask and I really loved the fact that the essence is easy to get absorbed in the skin and the mask material is really soft and feel luxurious. There is that pitera scent that is also available in the Facial Treatment Essence.

I left it on for 20 minutes as usual and I was surprised that my face is soaking the essence well. Although I'm using this mask as a final step after my moisturiser, the mask is still being soaked properly. After I removed the mask, I can see a glow on my face. I thought this mask is perfect for my skin and I can actually see a glow and radiant on my skin.
A few minutes after I removed the mask, I can see my face very raidant
Then, if you are asking why I give this mask a 2 stars out of 5 is because the next day I woke up, I have this weird film like substance peeling off from my skin. It is not my skin but there is this layer that is peeling from all over my face and neck. There is no expiry date on the mask so I'm not sure whether it's from expired products or what. Other than peeling, my skin feels radiant and hydrated which I really loved. If there is no peeling, I would have given this a 5 stars since I really loved it. I will try again since I still have a few more masks that is from a few years back and a few masks that I got recently. So, I will report back again in another post.
