Reviews: Cleanser, Serum & What I Wore Today
3 reviews today. 1. Lavera Neutral Cleansing Gel I don't like it. It cleans but it doesn't lather and I feel it doesn't have a deep cleansing effect, so my pores feel gunky. I shall leave it for the son to use / for days when I am having hypersensitive reactions. Fortunately I only bought 2 tubes of it at $7sg per piece. 2. Shiseido White Lucent Concentrated Brightening Serum (Sample - small tube next to Lavera Cleanser) I love it. Sometimes I get pimples on my chin during PMS. I used it on my pimple scars and they lightened very quickly. Much faster than even when I use Blanchir. And it's not oily. I don't know the price of the full size bottle, and I have alot of whitening products to try, so I might not buy it yet, but it's likely I'll buy it in future. 3. What I Wore Today (Shopping Outfit) I hated it. Kinda. For various reasons. I tried wearing a jacket (dug out my Abercrombie) instead of a cardigan to hide the spaghetti straps. So, are heels really better than flats? Heels (Btw, someone commented these shoes are serviceable. What are "serviceable" shoes?): Flats: I went with the flats today. My sis-in-law is always in her Prada flats but I bet no one ever tells her to wear heels to be fashionable or to pretty-up a dress? She's really thin though (despite having 2 kids), and much taller than me, over 170cm. Almost as tall as my brother whom she married, whereas I'm only about 167cm. Anyway, those darned flats still hurt so bad, in a fit of grouchiness I threw them out. Maybe the sis-in-law could give me the deals to her fav Prada boutiques. To add insult to injury, something about my face that says, "Criticise me, I feel too good about myself and need to be put down." I was browsing the store and an SA came up to say, "Very nice style, but that jacket is too hot for our weather!" WTF? Sure, I felt hot outside (*snigger*) but in the shopping centre, it wasn't bad at all. I was really pissed. And that dress, kept sliding down and showing my "cleavage", plus bunching up at the torso. I really wasn't happy with it at all. Darned dress. I was kinda sweaty and irritated after a long day, and almost bought this cardigan from Zara. But I thought I shouldn't. So I didn't. (Erm, yes, lol, I've taken to bringing the camera around with me, so I can look at clothes I tried and think about them before I buy them. That's the luxury of having time to think.) © Copyright.
