[Review] Beauty In The Eyes (Online Korean Beauty Store)

'Beauty In The Eyes' is a newly-launched Singapore-based online beauty store that carries popular Korean beauty brands such as Innisfree, Laneige, Tony Moly, Lioele, MISSHA and Sulwhasoo. All products are directly import from Korea or their respective manufacture of origin - so its 101% assurance on safety and quality. It also caters for both local and international markets.

I like how neat and pretty the website layout is which help online shoppers feel easy to browse through..


The latest attractive offer will be shown in the Home page when user first enter! And as you can see at the right banner says, "Free Local Delivery on all orders above $50" which i think it is fairly reasonable! Hover through the different tab in their website to find out more..

With 'Beauty In The Eyes' new launch, i get to try out 2 Korean skincare products - Tomatox by Tony Moly and Lioele Multi Seaweed Gel !


Tomatox Magic White Massage Pack (80g) by Tony Moly is one of the best selling Korean skincare products which function to help detox, whiten yet at the same time hydrate your skin! A light-weight face pack that is infused with all the goodness of a Tomato that is beneficial for our skin.
  
Selling at S$17.85 at 'Beauty In The Eyes'
Useful product description and reviews are available
Overall packaging is too cute i would recycle it even after i finish with the essence in it, either to put other stuff or just for kitchen display. =)
Open the 'Tomato' cap and found a small spatula and a lid,
The extract smells like milk body foam, very pleasant to the skin and easy to apply.
Its thin and dries up easily (in less than 10 minutes),
 
Usage directions: "After cleasnsing, apply on towel-dried face and gently massage for about 1 to 2 minutes. After massaging, leave it on your face for 5 to 10 minutes. Rinse out with lukewarm water and pat dry."

12 minutes is all you need!

Tomatox clears up skin by removing dead skin cells and by penetrate right into pores for deep cleansing and therefore, using twice or thrice a week is sufficient to obtain a clear, glow skin.

Love its magical multi-effects (brightening, massage and calm, and cleansing)


Due to recent lack of rest and stress from school's assignments and work, my face condition got worse with increasing Blemishes, Acne and feels very dry throughout the day. Hence, I am very thankful to have Tomatox with me now, for its wonderful ingredients acting just like a perfect Tomato!

This was taken after my first try,
Feels great after first wash! and I do believe my skin condition will be better when use weekly.


Lioele Multi Seaweed Gel (100g), cooling and soothing for the skin, perfect for warm weather like Singapore! This multi-functional Seaweed gel (as a toner, a moisturizer, or as a sleeping mask) has great soothing effect on skin (suitable even for sensitive skin) with more than 90% of seaweed extract. These natural resources from the sea provides benefits to stressed skin. It also include intensive amount of coenzyme Q10 which helps in the elasticity and firmness of the skin.

Selling at S$20.65 at 'Beauty In The Eyes'
Clear description and reviews,
Here's the sweet appearance of the jar - in aqua green and pink,
Its a clear, cooling gel and gives a refreshing smell.. Like Aloe not Seaweed..
I like that its not sticky and very soothing on skin which eliminate any excuse of not applying a moisturizer everyday. It can be applied day and night, face or body! And the good thing is that there is no need to wash off after application, just like any face or body lotion!

Having tried these two products, I shall continue to explore other interesting items in their list.. :)

[Media Tasting] YogurBerry in Singapore!

With so many Froyo (Frozen Yogurt) available in our sunny island, Singapore, it can be difficult to decide on which brand to choose from. Among all, my first choice is definitely  Y O G U R B E R R Y !



Already a hit in many countries and currently one of the fastest growing yogurt brands, YogurBerry has its presence in 27 countries such as Korea, USA, Brazil, Dubai, China, Australia and many more.. Now available in Singapore, it is celebrating its third outlet launch at Bugis Junction! So thankful for that! =D

Before i move on to write about all the goodness of YogurBerry, lets first watch their very adorable video which can be found on Youtube; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F_yPpQVePow


Y-O-G-U-R-B-E-R-R-Y~ I Love YogurBerry!

YogurBerry hits the perfect balance of sweet and sour and it can be enlivened with various nuts and fresh fruit toppings. On top of that, it is the first and only yogurt brand whose products have a glycemic index (GI) lower than 19 (Food with a GI lower than 19 are generally healthier to consume). "GI is a measurement carried out on carbohydrate-containing foods and their impact on our blood sugar and low GI diets have been associated with decreased risk of cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, metabolic syndrome, stroke, depression, chronic kidney disease, formation of gall stones, neural tube defects, formation of uterine fibroids, and various cancers."

Their yogurts are made with crystalline fructose (fruit sugar) - sugar obtained from natural fruits. This natural sweetener helps to boost the taste without adding to the calories! In fact, each serving of YogurBerry only contains 25 calories. The ultimate dessert that is low in fat, calories and contain probiotics to aid digestion.

A trip to YogurBerry is an interesting one as everything is self serve, from picking up the cups to knowing the price!
Simple instructions can be found on the wall for consumers to follow.
Beautiful yogurts station in bright lime green tone gives off a refreshing feel.



At the point of my visit, there were 8 different selection of flavours (Chocolate, Banana, Green Apple, Pineapple, Mango, Blueberry, Green Tea and Plain)! All of them were Yummylicious!

Many have mentioned Chocolate mix Banana tasted best among all, and indeed I think it is too awesome! So good, I can go for another cup!
 YogurBerry's secret in providing good yogurts, all products are freshly made in the shop everyday with fresh milk and daily organized fresh fruits and materials.

 Varieties of nuts toppings;

Granola is my new found favourite, love the crunchiness of the different nuts in Granola and it does blends well with any yogurt flavours.
Kids will love yogurt for these sweet treats - Gummy, M&Ms, Hershey's and even Oreo!
YogurBerry's yogurt contains non fat and only 98Kcal per 100g (140 Kcal / one apple), a healthy alternative than ice-cream for children.

Fresh fruits toppings are also self-serve. 
According to the boss, there will be more interesting toppings coming up to cater to our local taste buds.

Syrups for additional sweetness is available as well,

Weighing of cup once i am satisfied with the portion and toppings..
Including additional toppings and regardless of yogurt flavours, each self serve frozen yogurt cost only 30cents per 10g!
My second cup with bigger serve cost only S$6.90!

They also have Smoothies and Yogurt Parfait!

YogurBerry boasts a multitude of vitamins and fibre. It also contains only one-third of dairy fat compared with other ice-creams. There are more than 30 exciting flavours to be discovered, including Green Tea, Chocolate, Blueberry, Banana, Passionfruit, Strawberry, Mango, etc. making this a treat to be enjoyed over and over again!
Happy us with our happy treats!

With the beautiful girl, fif..

我们最亲爱的,

Exactly 2 weeks gone by..
Went through one of the worst days ever, knowing that we'll never be able to see our dearest granny anymore.. 
佷后悔出事前没去看外婆,陪她聊天,享用她煮的美食,和她一起看电视。。

" Thank you for everything you have done to the family, to each and every one of us. You have always been so kind and supportive in whatever things we do, putting others before self just to make sure all of us have sufficient necessities and comforts (even when days were tough). Its never easy to raise up so many of us (3 children + 2 nephews + 9 grandchildren + 2 nephews' kids) but you did well! You are the most beautiful, greatest granny in the world that anyone could ever ask and as much as we couldn't bear to know your departure, i still hope you will be safe and sound no matter where you are heading to, you will be! 很爱很爱你,我们最亲爱的 =) "

Memories be with us..
Thank you April for this pretty scrapbook made with love!!

With my little cousin, Ermilia. 
We stayed up all night, cherishing every moment with her during the last 3 days..

She mentioned she had wanted to see all of us gather together, being united as one family.
"Wish you were here with us, wish you could see this.."

"We're all travelling through time together every day of our lives.
All we can do is do our best to relish this remarkable ride."
- Tim Lake from About Time
