ACNES Mentholatum blogger campaign

I collected my ACNES hamper the other day.
It's a really small hamper LOL.


Anyway, I was thinking to myself, I had no acne so how would it help.
Then lo and behold, I got that bad skin allergy reaction and what's worst is that
it is not getting any better.
It seems to just erupt on every Sunday. This is the 2nd Sunday so it is like a relapse!

I've not started on the ACNES cleanser YET but I will probably soon and I hope
that the spots on my face would disappear soon.
I get so depressed seeing my face turn out like that when it was once near flawless :(


L'oreal Presents: Derma Genesis Pore Smoother Gel Cream

It was really nice of Cozycot & L'oreal (Stella) to invite me to the L'oreal Preview of the Derma Genesis Pore Smoother. I brought fellow beauty enthusiast; HM along and we had a smashing great time with the girls.

It was a cosy, intimate lunch session held at the Forlino restaurant of One Fullerton with fellow cotters, bloggers and the L'oreal ladies, Adeline & Stella.
We shared about our skincare regimes and chatted pretty much about everything and anything else 'under the sun' over a sumptuous 6 course meal.


The Serena room of Forlino is beautiful with a breathtaking view of the river and still-under-constructions-IR. I'm still waiting for the group photos from Stella.





We met Beatrice (MJ blogger & model for Bonitochico LJ) and Debbie (another blogger too). Both were really sweet & nice ladies :)
There was even a manicurist to help us do our nails too. Pity, I didn't get to try that out :( I also left earlier and missed out on the rest of the chit-chat and the strawberry ice-cream.

Anyway, here's what you've been waiting for.
More about this highly anticipated range by L'oreal.
As you all know, I'm a big fan of the Derma Genesis range and even
Beauty Boff of Times UK Beauty has given its a high 4/5 stars rating!
Read about it HERE


There're 3 products in this range; the cleanser scrub, toner & moisturizer.
3 simple easy steps to pore-free skin!
The previous derma genesis contained Hyaluronic Acid & Pro-Xylane which are a powerful combination that creates cellular environment for brigher and tigher skin.
Now on top of that, the Pore Smoother gel cream contains a NEW active micro-smoother that smoothens the skin by refining the pores, cell by cell. Interesting & innovative, isn't it?
So now, not only you get refreshed-looking skin thanks to the goodness of HA & Pro-X, you also will get minimized pores because of this new ingredient!


It was really sweet of L'oreal to present us with the full-size range to try out and I can't wait to. But first, I've got to finish up my current Derma Genesis collection. LOL!

Anyway, its official launch is in November but you can find these in stores at Watsons for now.


The scrub is going for $14.90 for 100ml. It can be used 2-3 times a week but
is also gentle enough to be used daily as well.

The toner is priced at $15.90 for 200ml and the star product; the gel cream is
priced at a very affordable $29.90 for 50ml.

I tried the gel cream and I like how light in texture it is. As some of you would know, the Derma Gensis Day/Night cream is already pretty light in texture and easily absorbed. So is this gel cream which probably is also lighter in texture than the day/night cream! Both still carry the same refreshing scent that is unique to Derma Genesis products.

Just head down to Watsons to try out the testers and you'll get what I mean :)

Allergic reaction

I had another allergic reaction.
Culprit could most likely be the Superdrug tea tree wipes.

Anyway, it was worst then the previous time.
And I went to see a GP, was prescribed Mupirocin Ointment USP.
I googled alittle and found out that it works well on pimples too;
according to

However, in my personal opinion, BP 2.5% still works best on pimples!
Currently, it has cleared up but there's quite abit of scars *SOBS*
So I'm using only aloe vera gel on them.

October - Month of Goodies

Hi folks, sorry for the hiatus.
It has been real crazy period for me.
I've been going through ups and downs.
Finally, found a new job...
But leaving the current company would mean that a compensation is required.
It isn't easy working for free and each day, I practically have to drag myself to

Anyway, in life, you win some and lose some.
October is proving to be a fulfilling freebie month for me.
So just to share the joy.

I won this Kenzo set from Cleo's May giveaway:

It consists of:
Kenzo Le Monde Est Beau 30ML
Flower By Kenzo Spring Fragrance 50ML

I also got the RADOX goodie hamper:

It consists of:
All 3 'flavors' of the Radox Smoothie Wash
Fresh-In Insoles

Then there's the Cozycot Mystery Goodie Bag for being in the top 50 referrals.

It consists of:

Bioessence Youth Radiance Essence (Full size)
Shokubutsu Body Foam Wash (Travel Size)
Dermalogica Soothing Spray (Travel Size)
Girl2Go Beauty Pouch
Girl2Go Beauty Pocket Mirror
Girl2Go Nail Polish Remover
Girl2Go Eye Makeup Remover
Fasio Be A Star set (Lipstick, E/S & Nail Polish)

And just awhile go, I received an email from Fr3b stating that I've won myself an ACNES Creamy wash hamper as I am selected for ACNES blogger campaign of the year.
It better be good and just consist a facial wash alone since it's stated 'HAMPER'.

It sure feels good to get such freebies but then again, my bedroom's getting too crowded for all of them. I'm having problems finding space to store them, might need to use the other Watsons storage bag I got sometime back. AIYO!!!
