Review: Dejavu Fiberwig Lash Knockout Mascara

Mascara is never my cup of tea, especially with the tedious removing process involved. I always have difficulty removing mascara and the whole process prolly took me more than 10minutes before convincing myself that its totally removed. Hence, I always prefer mascara which can be removed with water.

Bought this mascara in Tokyo, for about $25, roughly the same price as singapore. Got Lash Knockout cos I need volume more than length.


As you can see from the picture, the applicator is a straight brush, hence its abit hard to reach out to some of my lashes, especially those at the side. Its abit wet and brush tends to have small clumps. No smudging experienced so far.
Im not those who go for dramatic effects so I dont apply multiple layers. Usually I only apply 1 or 2. I only use those battery operated lash heater to curl my lashes.

Can be removed with warm water quite easily.

Verdict: 5/10 A normal mascara I feel, nothing too fantastic.

Review: Fancl Skin Renewal Pack

Bought this skin renewal pack, hoping that it will be the right exfoliator for me. Well, I was wrong again. I reckon Fancl skincare dont really suits me, except their washing powder.

Review: Gel form, have to leave it on for like 5 minutes then massage it off. No obvious after effect i will say. Probably becos im too used to exfoliating products with either micro beads or at least some dead skin coming out when I massage, its hard to imagine that this product is able to rid dead skin.

Verdict: 4/10 For this price and short shelf life of only 2 months, this product is just not for me.

Review: Origins Out of Trouble Mask

Bought this as a package in Hong Kong last Nov. It comes together with their famous Clear Improvement Mask & Drink up Mask. All 3 for$60 only! Its retailing for around $42 each in sg.. HK is really a shopping paradise haha.

Have to leave mask on for 10min before rinsing off.


The scent of this mask smells like those medicine which I used to put on my tiny ulcers in my mouth. similar to the clear improvement mask, a tingling sensation can be felt once applied, but its nothing too unpleasant as usual. Very cooling once rinsed off. Zits look less red after usage. Can be easily rinsed off as well.

I always applied hydrating mask after using this mask. I think when combined with Clear improvement mask, they more or less keep some zits at bay. Won't irritate zits even if i applied on them.

Verdict: 8/10 Worth trying if you've pimple prone skin like me!
