Eucerin 30-Day Challenge

Hello everyone, I just got back from Bali with friends and it was one of the best holiday ever, ever - Not a moment was spent without laughter! 

Brought along all the Eucerin products (Because I was still in the midst of the Eucerin 30-Day Challenge) blogged about previously here and I need to stress that the Active Concentrate is a life-saver! Can you tell that I've been religiously feeding my skin with these products judging from what's left of the bottles? 

I get pimples whenever my period is nearing and on the 2nd night in Bali, I felt a bump rising on my right cheek so after cleansing, I immediately applied a generous amount of the Active Concentrate over the bump and the next morning, it disappeared! I didn't even have time to take a before & after picture! My holiday would surely be dampened if it forms into a pimple D: I don't know about you, but my self-esteem drops whenever I get pimples - I wouldn't feel like taking pictures or even meeting anyone. 

Although it didn't completely clear up the blemishes on my chin, it has effectively lightened those spots. I also love the formula's malty texture and I can use it on a daily basis without worrying that it'll dry up the skin! 

The Make-up & Acne Remover is my favourite product out of the 4 I received! It cleanses optimally, doesn't make my skin feel sticky nor tight after application and to add to its awesomeness, it doesn't require rinsing (On very lazy days)! Really, just what more can I expect from a make-up remover? 

I am still trying to get used to incorporating the toner in my daily skin regime because it is an important step in opening clogged pores to prepare the skin for better absorption of the subsequent products I apply to my face. What I like about Eucerin's toner is that instead of leaving my skin feeling dry (Like most toners I've tried), it made my skin feel moisturized and refreshed! 

Last but not least, the Eucerin DermoPURIFYER Cleanser that makes cleansing my face an effortless task! I used to be extremely cautious whenever I cleanse my face because of my lash extensions but ever since I was introduced to this cleanser, it has never been easier! It doesn't matter if the product gets in my eye simply because it is SOAP FREE and will not irritate my eyes!

 That said, my 30-Day journey with Eucerin has been a great one and I'll definitely continue to use these products in my skincare regime! If you've been battling acne problems, open yourself to one more option!

PUB - The National Water Agency

As some of you may know, J and I moved into our new place earlier this February and we've been enjoying our little kitchen space a lot! We cook almost 4 times a week and this brings me to my next point, saving water in the kitchen - Our PUB bills will not only be smaller, we can also play a part in conserving this precious resource for future benefits.

One of the most effective methods of saving water in the kitchen is to avoid washing our dishes under a running tap. Instead, we soak & scrub all our used dishes in a large bucket/container filled with water. Before we do this we always scrap all the leftovers into a the bin to increase efficiency and reduce the risk of our sink getting choked in the long run. After scrubbing, we'll do a quick rinse with minimal water and its pretty much done!

 Rather than boiling our vegetables, we steam it! Many rice cookers these days have this option and you'll not only save water, the vegetables will be of greater nutritional value!

We usually rinse our rice 3-4 times before cooking and it is a waste to throw the water away so we usually collect it in a pail to water the plants or rinse the toilet.

Also refrain from thawing food under running water. Instead, let it defrost overnight in the refrigerator or if you don't have time, use the microwave to heat it up or even place it in a bowl of water and leave it to defrost.

Lastly, always make sure the tap is securely turned off to prevent unnecessary water wastage.
These water saving tips may seem insignificant to you but if everyone does the same, it'll add up to a whole lot so lets do what we can in conserving water and make our environment a better place!

Colgate Optic White

What is the first thing you notice when you meet somebody new? For me it has definitely got to be the smile for it unconsciously tells me if someone is approachable and friendly followed by his/her teeth. The colour of someone's teeth not only says a lot about their personal hygiene, it also has an impact on perceived attractiveness. Bright, shiny and white teeth definitely appears to be more appealing! Never underestimate the power of a smile to set the first impression right! 

The boost to confidence also comes from a bright dazzling smile and I'm ever so thankful I went ahead with the decision to get braces 3-4 years back. After removing my braces, the first thing I did was to go for teeth whitening and while it gave me a beautiful set of white teeth for a while, I will think thrice if I had to do it again.

So now, I only depend on whitening toothpastes and Colgate's Optic White Plus Shine is my new found buddy! Even when I travel, I bring it with me! 

For those of you who are skeptical about whitening toothpastes because it is said to remove enamels from your teeth, you'll be relieved to know that the Colgate Optic White Plus Shine uses a special formula that protects enamel and provides anti-cavity fluoride protection so go ahead and give it a try!

It also contains whitening accelerators (Silica & Phosphate Salts) that safely ex-foliate stains to whiten teeth in just one week! 

The Colgate Optic White Plus Shine is an upgraded formula with "Micro-Crystal Particles" that polishes teeth to give that highly coveted dazzling smile. 

Having used the Colgate Optic White Shine Plus exclusively for 5 days, I can safely say my teeth is slightly shinier than before! It tastes minty, not overbearing and I love how it makes my mouth feel clean and fresh with no bitter after-tastes. Most importantly, I haven't experienced any teeth sensitivity after using this toothpaste!

Get your own Colgate Optic White Shine Plus at only $6.90 and get ready to flash your big wide smiles!
