Review: Daiso Sole Sap Sheet – Leg Slimming

I bought at least 5 different packs of Sole Sap Sheets from Daiso and I woke up feeling refreshed after I tried the first one.

Last week, I tried the Daiso Sole Sap Sheet for slimming.

It indicated No. 4 for Relaxation. So it not only helps in leg slimming, it helps in relaxation.

The scent of grapefruit refreshes your mind and body.

It claimed to have the double effect of the scent of grapefruit and negative ions that refreshes your mind and body.

This is what inside the packaging.

Just apply the sheets to your soles after taking a bath or before going to bed. The sap absorbs excessive moisture in the body from the soles and the double effect of the scent of grapefruit and negative ions refreshes your mind and body.

How to use:

  1. Peel off the wider side of the backing paper that covers the adhesive sheet.
  2. Apply the aluminum side of the sap sheet to the center of the adhesive surface.
  3. Press the sap sheet on the arch in your foot and make sure it’s firmly attached. Then, peel off the remaining backing paper.
  4. When you wake up in the morning, remove them. This product may be used MAX 6 hours.
  5. The sole may be sticky after using this product. Please remove any adhesive with a wet towel.

This may apply to shoulders, elbows, back and knees. It is advisable to wear socks over the applied sheet for those people who suffer from excess perspiration or who often toss and turn about in their sleep.

This was what happened to the sap sheets in the next morning. I wore socks to sleep as the adhesive came off easily.

Honest Review: I fell asleep easily but it might be due to the tiredness from work and lack of sleep. Relaxation? Maybe. Leg slimming? Maybe need a few months. One major thing I noticed is I felt more refreshed in the next morning. The smell of the grapefruit is strong.

I think it’s worth a try!

Review: Daiso Sole Sap Sheet – Refresh

I also always keen to find out whether the Sole Sap Sheets really work. I decided to buy a few different types from Daiso last Sunday to try them out.

There are many types of sole sap sheets found in Daiso. They are priced at S$2 for each pair. Last night, I finally tried out the first pair.

The first one I tried was indicated No. 2 for Relaxation. It supposed to help me relax.

It claimed to have the double effect of the power of natural sap extract and negative ions.

In my line of work, we faced a lot of clients everyday and some of them tend to drain away our energy and gave us a lot of negative energy. I hope this can help to sap away all the negativity. Haha.

This is what inside the packaging.

Just apply the sheets to your soles after taking a bath or before going to bed. The sap absorbs excessive moisture in the body from the soles and the effect of the negative ions in tourmaline powder refreshes your mind and body.

I wonder if it helps to drain away the excessive water and reduces edema problem.

How to use:

  1. Peel off the wider side of the backing paper that covers the adhesive sheet.
  2. Apply the aluminum side of the sap sheet to the center of the adhesive surface.
  3. Press the sap sheet on the arch in your foot and make sure it’s firmly attached. Then, peel off the remaining backing paper.
  4. When you wake up in the morning, remove them. This product may be used MAX 6 hours.
  5. The sole may be sticky after using this product. Please remove any adhesive with a wet towel.

This was what happened to the sap sheets in the next morning. I wore socks to sleep as the adhesive came off easily.

Honest Review: I fell asleep easily but it might be due to the tiredness from work and lack of sleep. Relaxation? Maybe. One thing I noticed is I felt more refreshed in the next morning.

I think it’s worth a try!

Review: Real Barrier Korean Beauty Products

Amabie Beauty was very nice to send me a set of products from Real Barrier Korea to try out.

2 full size products, which are Real Barrier Cream Cleansing Foam and Real Barrier Essence Mist, with many samples.

1) Real Barrier Cream Cleansing Foam

This is formulated to leave the skin moisturized after washing.

Honest Review: This Cleansing Foam is gentle when I washed it on my face. My face doesn’t feel dry after washing unlike other Cleansing foams that I have tried.

2) Real Barrier Essence Mist

This is a Hydrating Mist for skin Barrier reinforcement.

Honest Review: I sprayed it on face after washing my face, avoiding my eye areas. I pat the Essence on my face and felt hydrated.

3) Real Barrier Extreme Cream

This is a Repairing Cream for damaged skin barrier and is the bestseller as it provides up to 72 hours hydration.

Honest Review: This small packet allows me to use for 4 mornings. It is lightweight and my face felt moisturized throughout the day as I don’t feel my face as oily as normal days.

4) Real Barrier Intense Moisture Cream

This is a lightweight Cream with 48 hour long lasting moisture.

Honest Review: It’s lightweight and I used it at night after the Essence Toner. It is mild and provide hydration to my face.

5) Real Barrier Extreme Essence Toner

This has double benefits of a Toner and Essence. It is a barrier protective toner.

Honest Review: I personally don’t like this as it’s not watery kind of toner as it is also an essence. Hence, I don’t put this on a cotton pad to wipe off my face but to put on my palms and pat onto my face. I’m not used to using this type of 2 in 1 Toner and Essence.

6) Real Barrier Tone Up Sunblock

This brightens skin complexion and has advanced UV protection.

Honest Review: I like this. A small sample lasted me for 5 days. It has a peachy smell and is refreshing. I do not need to apply make up base after applying this sunblock. It has saved me a step. It is lightweight. When I used this with the Real Barrier Extreme Cream, the hydration lasted for whole day and my make up did not need much touch up.

Overall, I like to thank Amabie Beauty & Real Barrier for this set of products. I love trying out new Korean Beauty products and this set of products are really suitable for my sensitive skin.

You can get the Real Barrier products from Watsons!

Kakao Friends Mobile Phone Covers

I’m a Kakao Friends fan! I have been seeing these covers in Gmarket and fell in love with them.

Well, you can actually buy knock off from Taobao at about S$1-2 each. I was tempted to.

Anyway, I didn’t buy any as I have bought the original Kakao Friends hard shell and PU leather types from Korea.

Just want to share how cute they are! How to resist?
