Antipodes Juliet Skin-Brightening Gel Cleanser: A pretty decent gel cleanser for everyday use that smells good too

I probably have no sane idea how this Antipodes Juliet Skin-Brightening Gel Cleanser review will turn out because when I’m typing all this out, I’m high on flu, sore throat and fever medication. Oh yes, it’s a deadly combination of sickness. I spent the whole of Saturday and Sunday on bed covered with two blankets, a jacket and fleece socks on. Let’s hope this review turns out fine *fingers crossed*

I still remember that I got this cleanser right before Chinese New Year this year. It has been sitting in my beauty stash for months before I took it out to use two months ago. For some reason I took a longer time to determine if I like an all natural product or not as to compare with other skin care range. That is because on my skin, natural product takes a longer time to work.

Antipodes Juliet Skin Brightening Gel Cleanser
Antipodes is a New Zealand brand that came out with range of certified organic and premium natural skincare as well as makeup. I’ve tried Antipodes makeup products before but not their skin care. The Antipodes Juliet Skin-Brightening Gel Cleanser will be my first. This is a brightening cleanser in gel form. It contain properties to clean, clear and gives blemish-free skin, thanks to the action of exfoliating extracts from the New Zealand kiwi superfruit and vibrant hibiscus flower. It also contain Manuka honey that has antibacterial powers and antioxidant-packed Vinanza Grape which form the perfect union to help reduce and balance oil production, helping grant your healthiest glow ever.

Dolce&Gabbana The One and The One for Men Collector’s Edition: A matchy match complementing fragrance for both men and women

Christmas this year is extra special and a joyous for me when these two heaven smelling Dolce&Gabbana The One and The One for Men Collector’s Edition reached my doorstep a few weeks ago. I’ve wore no other perfume but this since then and I even made my brother to use it and tell me what he thinks! Talking about taking control on how man smells lol.

A few months ago Dolce&Gabbana The One and The One For Men Limited Edition was launched for it’s 2014 lineup and to coincide with the holidays, Dolce&Gabbana The One and The One for Men Collector’s Edition (which is the duo you’re reading now) is released. There is no other best time to gift fragrance to your loved ones but Christmas.

Dolce&Gabbana The One and The One for Men Collector’s Edition
It’s not really just for the holidays and all. Dolce&Gabbana is celebrating the timeless elegance of The One and The One for Men by releasing the Collector’s Edition. You can easily differentiate which is for who although both of the bottle only state “The One” on the front. This limited edition bottle is interpreted as Dolce&Gabbana passionate red for the women while deep rich brown for the men. I was figuring out which should be mine without realizing the perfect color coordination. Of course the red is for girl. Silly me :P

December 2014 Favourites: It’s all about the eyeliner pencils

Soooo. I’ve totally missed October and November 2014 favourites. I went back to working life and I didn’t expect to be home that late and the need to work on weekend as well. For the past one month, I’ve totally missed all the usual blogging schedule. I’d be lying to you if I tell you I didn’t panic. I did. I tried adjusting my life back to blogging but I really couldn’t find the time. There was so much to do and catch up on weekend. I didn’t even have the time to take photo for the blog. It is a tough time for me so please bear with me for a little while more. I want to thank each and every one of you for the never ending support and love. You girls rocks! <3

Since I missed October and November 2014 favourites, I thought it only make sense for me to post up December 2014 Favourites sooner than expected otherwise I’d miss it again. This month is all about the eyeliner pencils. It really is. Until I started to dig out my other favourites to balance out the eyeliner pencil overload LOL.
