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?

Perioe x Kakao Friends

If you have being to Korea, you would have known their local toothpaste brand, Perioe.

Perioe had a few collaborations with Kakao a Friends. Below are some of their collaborations which I had bought 2 Neo Pump toothpastes either from Korea Depart or Gmarket.

I’m still using it and it’s good for my sensitive teeth. It’s very easy to use as you just pump out the toothpaste. I intend to reuse the bottle after used.

These are some other products, which I had also bought them from Korea Depart and Gmarket. Just can’t help buying as they are so cute.

I have tried the lime mojito (muzi) toothpaste. The taste is mild. So far so good, it doesn’t hurt my sensitive teeth. Just a little too mild.

Review: Luxury Soo Cheongpye – Moisture Mask Pack

Daily Mask Review: Luxury Soo Cheongpye Moisture Mask Pack

This mask supposed to moisturize your worn-out skin, invigorating your skin. It will also provide your skin nourishment from the ingredient such as Rosa Centifolia Flower Water, containing selected medicine herbal extract. The product prevents being greasy with sebaceum, improving skin tone brightly and cleanly.

  4. Remove the mask after around 10 to 20 minutes.
  5. Absorb the remaining contents by tapping it to penetrate into your skin.

The mask was moisturizing throughout the 25 minutes and instantly moistened up my skin. However, I don’t really like the anti-wrinkle eye cream. I forgot to apply it before the mask and I applied it after that. I also applied it on my skin since there is extra. But it smells a little like facial cleanser which made me doubt it and I even washes my hands after applying it.

Overall, great as a moisturizing Mask!

Review: The Face Shop Jeju Volcanic Lava Clay Face Mask

I’m back to review on face mask tonight! I have been sick or busy since my Australia trip last October and have not been reviewing any face mask although I still put my face mask at least every other night.

Tonight daily mask review is The Face Shop Jeju Volcanic Lava Clay Mask Sheet which I bought few months ago at half price. I just saw that it has already expired on 15/12/2017 but as someone who do not like things to go into waste, I may as well just use it tonight.

It is a convenient sheet mask with Jeju Volcanic Ash to absorb excess oil and help to cleanse congested pores. It is formulated with City Defender Complex to help fight the effects of find dust.

How to use:

  1. Apply toner or mist to clean skin to moisten it slightly.
  2. Remove the mask from the package and peel off the clear film from the upper mask to reveal the clay layer. Apply the upper mask first, then the lower mask.
  3. After applying both masks, remove the white opaque film and leave masks on for about 30 minutes until dry. Drying time may vary depending on temperature and skin type.
  4. When the masks dry and start to feel tight, slowly peel off from the outer edges.
  5. Rinse with water to remove any residue.

The brown clay mask felt soft when I first placed it on my face. However, it started to dry up and harden. The mask was cooling on my face and it doesn’t smell bad.

I peeled off the mask after 30 minutes and rinsed my face with water. Think my face smells nice. I felt clean although I can see my pores. However, my skin also felt dry and I need to apply moisturizer after that.

Overall, I think it does help to cleanse my face.

Price: S$7.90 or S$8.90 each

Where to buy: The Face Shop outlets

Repurchase: Yes, if I still get it at half price

Review: Magiclean Fabric Freshener

How do you take care of the hygiene of hard-to-wash fabric items regularly? Especially our children’s soft toys.

My children loves soft toys, like their mummy. And they hugged them to sleep. They can’t sleep without some of the soft toys. So how do you clean them without the children missing them at night?

To avoid the hassle of dragging them out to sun, you can try Magiclean Fabric Freshener instead!

Formulated by Japan advanced R&D, it has a micro-mist spray technology for wider and more even coverage. Its strong penetrative power penetrates deeply into fabric fibers and ensures that 99.9% of bacteria and odour are eliminated from the inside out!

It is formulated with natural deodorising extracts to neutralize odour from the root and prevent it from returning up to 24 hours. The bottle is ergonomically designed for easy grip when using.

It is so simple to use that Alyssa also wanted to try it after she saw me doing it.

  • Pull up white nozzle cover until a “click” sound is heard (Do not turn nozzle)
  • Spray directly on fabric from a distance of 20-30cm until the whole surface become lightly wet
  • Do not spray in large quantity or in one place all at once as it may cause stains
  • Dry the items well after spraying if required
  • Close white nozzle cover after use

The soft toys smelled fresh after we sprayed them with Magiclean Fabric Freshener. It is available in 3 different fragrances: Fresh & Light Scent, Refreshing Mint and Pure Blossom and they are made in Japan.

I guess most importantly, it saves the hassle of washing and putting it under the sun and yet, it kills 99.9% of the bacteria.

  • Price: S$4.95
  • Where to buy: Major Supermarkets
  • Repurchase: Yes
  • Country of origin: Japan

Definitely suitable for hard-to-wash fabric products such as bedding items, baby’s fabric toys and stroller seats, sofa, carpet, curtains. It can also eliminate musty, cigarette and cooking smell on clothing, car seats as well as fabric shoes. I am going to try them on my shoes soon!

Review: The Face Shop x Kakao Friends Character Mask – Neo (Resilience)

I’m a fan of Kakao Friends and I bought the whole series of The Face Shop x Kakao Friends Character Mask last November. It is a limited edition series.

Tonight, I am going to review The Face Shop x Kakao Friends Character Mask – Neo (Resilience) which supposed to diminish wrinkles.


NEO: The feline fashionista
A classy cat with bent for narcissism, NEO is the most fashion-conscious Kakao Friend. She’s never fully dressed without her pearls and, most importantly, her signature bobbed wig. Outside of shopping, her beloved boyfriend Frodo is her #1 priority.


Blueberries as firm as coy Neo’s round face! With essence containing Adenosine and Blueberry, this character face mask brings back skin’s vitality and resilience.


How to use:

  1. Wash face and apply toner
  2. Pull out the mask and carefully place it on face
  3. Remove after 10-15 minutes and tap lightly to absorb the remaining essence into the skin


I think it’s so scary on the face and my hubby was saying I shouldn’t wear this in seventh month. Unlike the cute neo, the mask looks weird on the face.

The good thing about this mask is that it’s not wet dripping with essence but it’s soaked in the essence which moisturized the face when it was on it. There was very little remaining essence in the packaging too. The mask covers the eyes and lip area which is good.


Of cos, my wrinkles are still there but I felt my skin tighter when I removed the mask. The lips felt smooth and moisturized. The moisturizing effect on my face doesn’t last that long since this is a resilience mask instead of a moisturizing mask.

Price: S$5.90
Where to buy: The Face Shop outlets (but no longer in stock)
Rating: 3 out of 5
Repurchase: Maybe not

Review: LABIOTTE Freniq Turn Over Soothing First Mask

Daily Masking Review: LABIOTTE Freniq Turn Over Soothing First Mask


The emergent soothing first mask containing triple aqua seal ingredient delivers the first step skin boosting effect to skin as the clear sheet adheres to skin.

It claims to boost the skin with excellent water absorption with boosting first water and rapidly restore the skin condition immediately after washing and improves the water content. It also cools down the body temperature while giving moisturizing care for sensitive skin at the same time.

How to use:

  1. Store the mask in refrigerator and use the sheet when the skin-customized temperature sensor sticker turns green.
  2. Use the mask at first step of skin care routine after washing face.
  3. Peel the film from the sheet mask and attach on the face.
  4. Remove the sheet mask after 10-20 minutes and gently tap the remaining essence for absorption into skin.

I put the mask in the refrigerator but the temperature sensor sticker did not turn green. I didn’t bother and just use it. The mask was soaked with jelly gel texture essence as I took out from the packaging. It was cooling and soothing to my skin. Thanks to the cool temperature of the refrigerator.

I applied the excess essence from the packaging onto my legs and the skin felt cool and moisturized.

The mask adhered well onto my face. My skin felt moisturized while the mask was on my face for 15 minutes. I have to massage the remaining essence onto my face.

Overall, the mask serves its purpose as a soothing mask. I also like the fact that it is moisturizing.
