Review: Bio-essence Bio Multi Effect BB Cream

Standard

I came across this website from sg that is really cool! its The Sample Store. basically, you sign up as a member, and you can ‘grab’ free sample of ALOT of beauty/healthcare etc pdts for FREE (postage not included). afterwhich you can review these items to gain points, and use these points to redeem more items. not bad right?

so, thrifty shoppers like us get free samples, get to try products that we are eyeing without buying first. reviewing allows other shoppers to decide whether to buy, everyone is happy. win-win!

so i got myself the BRTC jasmine water bb cream, bio essence bb creams and Hadatuko collagen sachet 🙂

so, if you wish to be a member, click http://www.thesamplestore.sg/r/72794 and support me!

ok sorry for digressing. I shall move on to the review of the Bio-essence bio multi effect bb cream. its 8-in-1 man!
-concealer
-sunscreen (SPF 25+)
-Skin Repair
-Moisturiser
-Nourishment
-Oil control
-Skin Whitening
-Reduces lines and wrinkles

(this is ripped of the box: Ok im thinking right now if they want to use nouns or verbs to desrible these 8 effects, so inconsistent)

anyway, i used it for work today! the bb cream is thinner than my current Skinfood aloe vera bb cream, but applying this bb cream is a breeze. I used gentle patting motions to blend this to my skin, and it spreads smoothly on my face and coverage is not too bad, it covers my super enlarged pores on my nose very well!!

the shade also blends in well with my fair skin, giving my face a very natural nude look. I bet ppl cant tell i have any make up on! after applying this, i use the Chacott finishing poweder to finsih off my foundation routine. i super heart the chacott powder btw, will review another time.

End result after putting only blusher and lipstick.

i also put the extra on my left hand for comparison:

so, if you are fair skinned and like a natural nude look, i think this product is really value for money and effective. At $28 for 30g, this little tube does more than expected!

you can get the FREE sample with FREE delivery to your doorstep at the sample store too!

Review: Bio-essence 24K Bio-Gold Face + Neck Age Reverse Clear Cream

Standard

Yes, I’m the other author who uses the other Bio-essence cream.

Here are some of my facial grouses: My skin’s oily and my face is “Bread Face” (面包脸) according to Gigi Lai, the former Bio-essence spokeperson.

Decided to buy Bio-essence 24K Bio-Gold Face + Neck Age Reverse Clear Cream boasting of bird’s nest and Nanogold as its active ingredients, as I had some vouchers and Watsons’ had a massive sale.

Bio-essence 24K Bio-Gold Range (Thanks to: Life Little Tales)

My verdict:

Kudos to the gel-like texture that “melts” into my skin once I apply it after my moisturiser and before my sunscreen. It’s essential to massage the gel in circular motion to drain excessive fluids from the lymphatic vessels, causing the bloatedness of “bread face”.

For those interested in facial massage techniques 🙂

My colleagues noticed me for my slimmer face before I mentioned any use of face lifting cream. I was pretty pleased (oh-okay I admit, I am damn pleased!) since I did not have the discipline/courage to measure the width of my face.

Slimming aside, I feel that my skin has become more supple and less oily. I’m not sure if it’s a combination of more suitable skin care or just this product.

Nay to the packaging – I would prefer a pump/dropper packaging as compared to this container so I can control the amount I use each time.

Overall: 3.5/5 It helps to firm up the skin but it is probable that facial massage techniques played a part as well.

Next up, I would want to try the Eye-serum which I heard so much rave reviews about.

Review: Bio-essence Face Lifting Cream (Pine Pollen)

Standard

I blogged about this on my own blog before. but that was brief so i’ll rewrite it again.
after watching 女人我最大, they used this cream on the model and the result was instant!!

as you know im damn despo to make my fat face thinner, so i managed to lay my hands on this cream!

it even comes with a measuring tape! thats how confident they are of proving it works. in the show’s words, 好大胆喔!!
so i start with measuring the size before i put the creme. from the middle part under my nose to the bottom of my earlobes.

reading: 13cm

after which i use the applicator and spread generous amt over my cheeks. then using my index and middle fingers from both hands, i spread and massage the creme in circular motion for 10 mins.
first thing which i dont like : the menthol composition of the cream really stings my face. i hate menthol man!! but i bear with it la. maybe my skin too dehydrated.

then i waited for another 5 min or so. wanted it to be longer but i cannot take the sting.
so i washed it off. washing can be tricky cos its really oily creamy kinda texture. i had to wipe it off with tissue, wash with cleanser, then towel my face dry.
i was excited to measure again.


12.2cm

not bad right!!
this is the 2nd or 3rd time im using this. the last time i used, it was 13cm to 12cm. so basically the face will expand back to original size.
maybe, maybe, need to use regulary. i used like 3 times in 2 months.
cos another author from this blog uses the Bird Nest’s one everyday and her face become smaller!

i give this 1.5 out of 5 stars. nay to menthol, oily cream.
