LANEIGE - Product Review

We all know sufficient level of moisture in our skin plays an important role in maintaining healthy skin. Lack of moisture = Less supple = No beautiful skin and dull tone. There are several factors that causes our skin to be less supple. For my case, would mostly due to the frequent long duration spend at work under air-conditioned area and lack of rest. Extreme dryness has always been my biggest skin problem, some parts of my face will itch sometime and started to peel its top skin layer, the skin around my lips tends to tear easily too. The feeling is just so horrible.. till i own my very first one of LANEIGE's product a few months ago - the LANEIGE Night Water Sleeping Pack (Mask). My skin no longer peel off easily like before. Till today, it is still my sleeping companion throughout the night! So true, it helps provide intensive hydration, vitality as well as brightening effect while restoring skin with deep relaxation, maintaining a waterful, beautiful skin. So happy to wake up to soft, supple skin now! =) 
Well-known to many, this LANEIGE Night Water Sleeping Pack (Mask) bring wonders to our skin, so much so it is one of the most award winning beauty product. Why so? Here's the answers;
(Selfshot with my current favourite LANEIGE product using webcam with bare face and no filter.
See, i even got myself matching coloured nails polish! LoL.)

Because night time skin transmission (permeability) shows higher rate than the one in the day time. Applying it right before sleep time, the best state for the skin transmission according to the skin circadian rhythm, maximizes the efficiency of overnight water supply. The function of skin remarkably declines in the night time. Enriched with Beta-glucan, Water Sleeping Pack_EX deeply hydrates fatigue and dry skin while Ceramide SLN formula strengthens the skin barrier.
- Containing the Snow Water, it helps to keep your skin look more crystal clear and vitalized.
- Antioxidant effect of Hunza Apricot Extracts helps brighten skin tone evenly by removing harmful oxygen and purifying skin.
- Recoverine from Chestnuts promotes turnovers of horny layers to remove dead cells away for vigorous water supply and sleek skin texture.
- An aromatic essence compound exclusively developed by AMOREPACIFIC, Sleepscent helps to relax your mind and body and derive for a good sleep. A good sleep effect allowing sufficient relaxation eventually reinforces skin restoration for healthier skin condition. Essential oils from Orange Flower, Rose, Ylang Ylang, Sandal Wood etc. are contained in the Sleepscent.
- Light gel-type texture without stickiness but moisture leaves you a comfortable sleep.

Apart from the one i am currently actively using, LANEIGE - being positioned as the 'moisture-expert' brand, has a heavenly lot more of its moisturising range of beauty products, ranging from mist, cream, mask and essence. (I ever tried their sample-size water bank essence as well, love the texture and how my skin can absorb the essence!)
 Being waterful keeps skin looking radiant, young and dewy

LANEIGE (First launched in 1994 in Korea), an international brand, with name meaning 'natural snow' in French, values the artistic sense of snow crystals and its source - water. The company constantly enhancing their products, with water science experts working hard in the background, just to bring even radiant, youthful, flawless-looking skin to us.

Do you know LANEIGE also have their own make-up range?! Yes? No?
They actually do have a wide range of make-up products, each with functions that helps in getting the flawless healthy skin, holding their brand's philosophy and values to their customers.

We heard of the BB Cream, now LANEIGE came out with the new-concept, a whole new level to flawless-looking skin, presenting to you their Snow BB Soothing Cushion! It is a compact that contains a patented cushion filled with cooling air and BB cream. It is a unique type of BB product with 5 benefits - (1)Whitening (2)Sunscreen SPF 50+ PA+++ (3)Sweat-proof (4)Soothing (5)Makeup Effects. Also, the product came in two separate containers to preserve the active ingredients and their functionality.

LANEIGE BB Cushion delivers light, natural and fresh makeup; and being in a convenient compact, it easily fits in a cosmetic pouch for quick touch-ups on the go, so we can have flawless skin, anytime, anywhere!

With it's Night Water Sleeping Pack (Mask) being such a success, i strongly believe that LANEIGE Snow BB Cushion is going to be people's favourite too! Can't wait to own one and give it a try! ^^)

Weekend Trip to Batam! [Part 2]

From both Factory Outlet and BCS mall.. I bought these..
1. Pink Studded laced top (Cheapest, SGD$5)
2. Inverted skull black swing top
3. Green chiffon top (Fav piece, SGD$13)
 There's actually a lot of fashionable clothes that can be found in BCS Mall..
Given only 40mins of free time in the mall, Elaine and i only managed to clear the 1st level and then head down to B1 for cup corn (Super yummy pls).. There were a total of 5-6 level.. we wanted to explore all of them for the 1st level already an eye-opener for us but not enough time! =( 
Too many nice clothes.. for a moment.. it feels like we are in BKK.

Then, we went to a 60mins massage.. afraid that i couldn't take the heavy rub of the massage due to my thin-size, i wanted to change the package to body scrub instead, but they don't allow me to.. They said must stick to what's given in the package. So i no choice but to request the lady who served me to go light on me. It turns out pretty comfortable with no pain at all.. i almost fell asleep during the session till the lady ask me to tilt around to do my arms... =)

Last venue of the tour, visited the store selling local keropok - Prawn Crackers!
Elaine an i share the buys, end up with 2 full baskets, split into 4 carriers! HAPPY BUYERS!

Finally after so many stops, we are here checking into our hotel. Golden Gate Hotel, less than 5mins walk to DC Mall! =) Looking out of our window, it was DC Mall just across a carpark! Made us all feeling so excited! But BCS Mall is still our preferred shopping location so far! Didn't get to go Nagoya Mall though, too far away from our hotel.. Missed out the long-awaited A&W~ =(

No time to waste, went down to DC Mall for another round of shopping after we settled our baggage. Ate Best Fried Chicken for dinner, spent a total of SGD $15+ for 3 of us.
Overview of DC Mall; a few similar large departmental stores..
We love their supermart most; Diamond supermarket at DC Mall.
Fruits displayed neatly, looking fresh with vibrant colours!
Indo-mie of all flavours (Mee soto and mee goreng was said to be the top seller)
Amazing colours of hair dye can be found in supermarket too!
 Breakfast time in the hotel
 Settle our lunch at Coffee Town
End of the trip; in the coach on our way home..
Gonna miss this fun-filled short getaway.
