You spend long hours sleeping at night
so why not treat your skin while you are asleep?
Sleep through and wake up with better skin, 
Simply apply a thin layer onto your face before you head to bed at night. 

It doesn't leave my skin feeling sticky 
but instead smooth and smelling fruity :) 

It helps reduce pimples and freckles
with regular usage to help achieve smoother baby skin.

PasJel Fluffy Favour Multifunctional Cream is the best alternative there is to Botox without the ouch!

I applied PasJel Fluffy Favour Multifunctional Cream
on my face and noticed that it smoothened out skin
and my skin really felt younger! 

It also has a pleasant floral scent,

 The last product I was excited to try out was 
PasJel Oh My Egg Pink Acne Formula

Samsung Galaxy S6 edge 4G+ review - [sponsored post]
Tuesday, July 21, 2015.

I've always been an iPhone user and I'm the kind of person who doesn't really like change or trying things out of my comfort zone. In this case, when Samsung approached me to try out their latest Samsung Galaxy S6 edge 4G+ I was skeptical and hesitant as the world of android was terribly foreign to me. 

However, I was determined to figure out what all the rave about Android phones were all about and I did hear good reviews from my peers about the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge 4G+ and indeed after more than month of familiarizing myself with my new Samsung Galaxy S6 edge 4G+ and using it daily, I must say, it definitely did not disappoint at all! 
So here I am, blogging about my experience with the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge 4G+ 
so you can understand it's features and perks: 

Firstly, the design of the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge 4G+ has a sleek glass and metal finishing which provides strength and durability. The size fits nicely into the palm of my hands and does not feel flimsy at all. As I'm writing this post, I realized that I have not had any screen protector on since the day I got my phone (absent minded me) and I freaked out a little fearing that the screen might have been accidentally scratched during the past month or so but lo and behold - there were no scratches at all! Seems like, I could really do without a screen protector this time. This really impressed me as it further emphasized on the quality of the materials used for the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge 4G+!

You would have also noticed the unique curved edges on the sides of this phone which is a one-of-a-kind feature for the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge 4G+. Its dual edge glass provides easy access and shortcuts to your phone making it multifunctional and user friendly, especially the People Edge option that’s only available on the Galaxy S6 edge 4G+. So the whole deal is you’ll get to add 5 important people to your life under this mode and when your phone is facing down, you’ll easily be able to know who’s calling with the colour-coded notification lights that you assigned to your contacts! Really stellar, I have to say! 

It is comes in 4 colours: 
Gold Platinum 
Black Sapphire
White Pearl 
Green Emerald 

 In my opinion, the strongest feature of the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge 4G+ is actually their camera. 
Being an active Instagrammer, I'm always on the go, snapping pictures whenever something catches my eye. A phone's camera is extremely important to me and I can get really picky about it.

The Samsung Galaxy S6 edge 4G+ has a Quick Launch Camera function which shoots moments in less than one second simply by double tapping the home button and the camera is immediately launched. No more fumbling through your list of apps trying to find the camera button and missing out on precious photo worthy moments! 

Another feature that I really like is the Ultra Fast Charging capability the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge 4G+ has. We all know how fast phone batteries can deplete and one charge might not even last you through the day. Being so actively engaged with our phones 24/7, your phone is as good as your best friend. I really dislike carrying portable chargers around therefore the Ultra Fast Charging has benefited me a lot. Within just a short 10 minutes of charging, it can provide you with up to 4 hours of usage. So I usually just plug in my phone to charge in my car while I'm on to go from point A to point B and it quickly charges in a flash! 

Also, if you are not a fan of wires and plugging things in, the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge 4G+ can also be charged wirelessly!  However, you would need to purchase their Wireless Charging Pad separately :) 

When people ask me what's so good about the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge 4G+ camera, I would usually tell them that it's the Pro Mode that impressed me. The Pro Mode gives you functions just like a DSLR on a smartphone!
 You would be able to adjust settings like your ISO, White Balance, 
Exposure and even manually focus on your subject for clear macro shots. 

It also has an f1.9 lens which captures bright and clear photos even in low light environments. 
No more under exposed and dull looking photos. 

I've also been using my Samsung Galaxy S6 edge 4G+ to snap my food pictures and it always makes the food looks really appetizing, clear and vivid. You can even adjust your image size and format to suit your preference. For me, I usually would opt for the square crop as it gives me a good gauge for Instagram purpose.

With their Auto Real Time HDR Function taking pictures with strong back light would not pose as an issue anymore. Lighting in such images are evened out and balanced. It is also great for selfies as it has a Beauty Mode and even a Wide Selfie function to include more people in your selfies! 

Lastly, if you're the kind that loves to take pictures of moving objects, fret not as the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge 4G+ has a Tracking AF function which tracks your moving subject ensuring that your subject is always focused while snapping. Great for taking pictures of pets, children and even sports! 

In conclusion, I've been loving my Samsung Galaxy S6 edge 4G+ and have not regretted since the swap over from my iPhone. Grateful for Samsung for giving me this opportunity to review and try out the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge 4G+.

Oh and, don’t forget to check out the amazing deals on the Galaxy Life app (only available for Samsung users!) as they share really attractive deals! I’ve found some deals I’m interested in, especially:
Everything With Fries – Free dessert with every 2 mains, Cocoa Colony – 1 for 1 beverages and HipVan - $15 off any purchase! Remember to download Galaxy Life on Google Play so you won’t miss out on this!

SANA Singapore Review [AD]
Wednesday, July 15, 2015.

SANA (サナ) is a leading cosmetics/skincare/bodycare brand in Japan. It is widely known for its soybean Namerakahonpo skincare series (なめらか本舗) and has recently launched in Singapore! 

SANA (サナ) stands for “Safe and Natural” and 
they produce beauty goods of high quality to cater to all ages.

They recently sent me some of their best selling products
that I'll be sharing and talking about in this post. 
I know foreign products can be quite intimidating and confusing
as you can't really understand 100% of whats written on the packaging 
but fret not as I'm here to help you decipher and figure out
which product would suit you the best :) 

So read on to find out about these new japanese makeup products: 

First up: SANA Super Quick Melty Gel Eyeliner 01 (U.P $22.90) 
Eyeliner is an essential to my makeup routine and
 it's always great when I find an awesome one.
So I was curious to see how this eyeliner would fair ;)

It has a 2mm lead that comes out gradually from the tip simply by twisting the pen,
no need for sharpening! Super easy to use! 
The tip helps draw fine, define lines and does not break off easily
unlike some lead eyeliners that I've tried before. 

Also, the lines are pigmented, a good kind of dark. 
The eyeliner is waterproof and smudge proof, great for long wearing. 
I've been wearing it pretty frequently due to the fact
that it is really easy to use and stays on looking great the entire day! 

Here I'm wearing the SANA Super Quick Melty Gel Eyeliner 01
and SANA Powerstyle Liquid Eyebrow - Grayish Brown
2 of my favorite products from the SANA range that I've tried so far. 
You can see how defined the eyeliner looks and 
how natural the brows are even though I filled them up. 

SANA Powerstyle Liquid Eyebrow (U.P $18.90)
really surprised me as I have always been a user of powdered kind of brow makeup 
and wasn't sure how a felt-tip one would turn out.
But after the first time I tried SANA Powerstyle Liquid Eyebrow I was impressed! 

It matched my brow color perfectly and allowed me to draw fine lines
which mimicked my brow hair which resulted in my brows
looking more natural and nicely filled up. 

It also stayed on the entire day due to it's 
long lasting and super water proof formula.
So there is not fear that your eyebrows would go missing halfway through the day
due to sweat, rubbing whatsoever. 

I've switched to using SANA Powerstyle Liquid Eyebrow completely! 

SANA Maiko-Han Makeup Base and Face Powder 
caught my eye not only because of it's pretty packaging 
but also about the claims it said it could do when applied to the face. 

SANA Maiko-Han Makeup Base (U.P $24.90) 
- Brighter & Glowing Skin
- Moisten skin with dewy look
- SPF 30 PA +++
- Cherry Blossom Aroma 
- Long Lasting Makeup 

The coverage from the SANA Maiko-Han Makeup Base 
is a Medium to High Coverage. 
It's pink-based and really gives your face a 'cherry blossom' feel and glow.
It conceals the dullness of the skin and adds a healthier complexion. 
Kind of reminds me of how those Geishas would look
but in a more wearable and adorable way. 
And if you are a fan of scented products,
this makeup base smells like Cherry Blossoms!  

The SANA Maiko-Han Face Powder NA 01 Sheer Pink ($29.90)
is just like the icing on top of the cake. 
It is a loose powder which helps set your makeup
with a silky smooth finish.
Helping your makeup up to last longer as it melts at body temperature
to blend in over your face.  

It also has a flexible net and a puff which controls the amount of product 
that comes out. Extremely fuss free and not messy. 
Simply push the puff on the net and apply the
powder evenly all over your face for a natural finish. 

Here I'm wearing the SANA Maiko-Han Makeup Base and Face Powder 
which gives my face a fair healthy pink glow just like those Japanese girls! 

After all those makeup, you would need something legit to remove and cleanse your face. 
SANA Namerakahonpo Cleansing Water (U.P $16.90) 
is a cleanser, facial foam and toner all in one! 
3 in 1 
To be honest it's very good for lazy people who opt for convenience
as just one wipe is all you need for a speedy makeup removing process. 

It's a thick liquid, water based cleanser which is gentle on the skin.

The thick liquid prevents rubbing of the skin
but at the same time, cleanses deeply into your pores. 

SANA Namerakahonpo Cleansing Water
has received many great reviews and my skin felt 
cleansed and hydrated after usage!

SANA (サナ) products are available in all Tokyu Hands Singapore, SASA Singapore, BHG ALT Singapore & John Little Singapore stores.
