Review: Garnier Pure Active Spot-On Treatment

Feb 25, 2013
I used to have a few similar products from other brands such as Shiseido, Clarins, Artistry (under Amway), Bobbi Brown and Clinique, but nowadays I am sticking to this Garnier Pure Active Spot-On Treatment for my pimples.

Okay I do not have acne skin, if you do, try to source for other solutions please as I do not believe this product will work. It's more for small pimples with pus and mild hormonal acne. For me, I do have a few pimples around my nose and chin area which only pop up around that time of the month. But sometimes such pimples can become painful cyst that's swelling like mad. The best part of this roll on treatment, is that it is not too harsh and doesn't create strong burning sensation like other similar products. In fact it has a very nice scent instead of the usual alcoholic smell from other similar products.  It dries out the pimples fast enough, usually within a few hours, and I love it for purging out the whiteheads/pus underneath the skin, without making my skin bleeding. And it's so far the best solution to soothe the pain whenever I have huge inflamed pimples. 

I have 2 of them, one at home and one in office, it has became my life saver. But of course if I want a pimple-free skin even during that time of the month, DHC Collagen is still the best solution because during the time I was drinking that, I just had no pimples at all!

Review: Koji Linequeen 1 Day Long Eyeliner Coat

Feb 15, 2013
I was a little surprised to spot this product on the shelf, I guess only Japanese could come out with such an invention. I only knew there's coat for mascara, but now, there's even a coat for eyeliner, sounds amazing right? Especially for people like me, who simply cannot wear eyeliner due to extremely oily eyelid, this looks like a perfect remedy.

It's a gel type product, and it does smell a bit like a gel/glue. I just need to apply a thin layer on top of my liquid eyeliner, which in this case I used KISS ME HEROINE Make Impact Liquid Eyeliner since I just bought it not long ago and was pretty disappointed with the result after using it. So this eyeliner coat is supposed to seal and protect the eyeliner without getting smudge.
The coat is extremely easy to apply, but you just need to be a little careful and not to hurt your eyes with the brush, as the product might leave a tingling sensation if it gets into your eyes. Try to keep your eyes closed for 10-15 seconds till the gel gets fully dried up, tada, you get perfect liners on your eyelids that does not smudge at all, and I fell in love the smooth lines and clean look that lasts throughout the day immediately. 

Yes this is definitely a savior and now my liquid eyeliners need not to be dumped away. But I did tested it with different types of eyeliners, it definitely doesn't work that well with pencil eyeliners.
