Beauty Empties #2!

Here we go again!

Kora Organics By Miranda Kerr Cream Cleanser

Initially I was going to repurchase the foaming cleanser that I had previously used but it was out of stock so I thought I'd give this one a try. Personally, I prefer the foaming cleanser from Kora Organics, as it is more suitable for oily skin. The cream cleanser is very gentle on the skin but I think it's more suitable for those with dry/sensitive skin. It also smells much better than the foaming cleanser!

Donna Karan Cashmere Mist Deodorant 

After hearing Youtubers comment on this deodorant I gave in and bought it. This is probably the best deodorant I've ever used. Now, that is a bold statement! However, it is a product that is slightly hard to get your hands on!

Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes

A holy grail product that I've been using for years on end! And will continue to do so!

Aveeno Daily Moisturising Lotion

Not only is this a great body lotion, it is also very affordable. It kept my skin moisturised for hours! I would definitely recommend it.

Beauty Empties #1.

So...I thought I would do quick reviews on my beauty empties on my blog rather than Instagram. What do you guys think?

MAC Brush Cleanser 

I've been through a couple of bottles. It's effective but isn't the cheapest thing to use in the long run as I need a fair amount of product to get my make up brushes thoroughly clean. However, it is a good brush cleanser.

Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray

After hearing a couple of Youtubers constantly raving about this hairspray I finally gave in! I did however decide to try out the travel size bottle first, just in case I wouldn't like it. Great product! I completely understand why Youtubers are constantly talking about this product. It is very expensive for a hairspray but it does the job and I would definitely repurchase.

Oilatum Intensive Anti-dandruff Shampoo

I could not find the normal version so I had to get the intensive version instead. First of all, it really is intensive! My scalp always feels really minty/tingly whilst using this. It is effective and is definitely worth purchasing!

The Body Shop Love Etc. Perfume

Every time I use this perfume it reminds me of Hong Kong! That is because on my first ever holiday to Hong Kong, I used this perfume through the entire trip so the scent definitely brings back memories. The perfume is quite strong and sweet, but it isn't overwhelming. I personally think that it's one of the best perfumes that The Body Shop produces.

Review: LOLA Marc Jacobs!

Excuse the bad picture quality! I seem to have misplaced my camera charger! Haha.

Anyway, back to Marc Jacobs, I have finally used up this Lola perfume! To be honest, it was kind of an impulse buy. I used to use the Daisy perfume from the brand, which I loved so I thought I would give this one a try too. The scent itself consists of many different notes which makes it slightly harder to explain. I would say that it has a floral yet musky scent, if that makes any sense! I personally think that this is one for the evenings, as it is quite feminine and sexy to some extent. 

Marc Jacobs definitely comes out with the best packaging when it comes to perfumes! I remember getting this and being obsessed with the lid! It just looks so pretty and chic on the dressing table. 

The staying power of the LOLA perfume is actually not too bad as it gives off a rather strong aroma. Whenever I wore the scent, people around me would notice it which was good. However, I don't think it's a perfume I would repurchase for myself as I personally think that it doesn't quite suit me. It wasn't a perfume that I would want to sniff all the time...but that is just my personal opinion! I much prefer the original Daisy perfume from Marc Jacobs!

Review: Christian Dior Creme de Rose Smoothing Plumping Lip Balm.

After hearing so many good things about it online, I decided to treat myself to a lip balm from Dior a while ago. And I have finally finished using it! Therefore I can do a "proper" product review of it now.

First of all, I love the packaging of the product. It's simple yet chic. Dior know how to make their products look pretty and appealing! The product itself is not bad, but I've got to admit that I was a little disappointed as I was expecting an incredibly good lip balm after seeing so many good reviews. It is a good lip balm but it isn't one of those lip balms that makes an instant difference to your chapped lips. You have to constantly use to be able to see any changes.

I love the scent of the product. It has a very subtle hint of roses which I like. It isn't overpowering which I like. Whenever I use this lip balm, I do feel that my lips become slightly plumped which is great. There's something about this product that makes my lips look better than usual, without having to wear any lipstick etc.

This lip balm has lasted me for months on end so you definitely do get your money's worth. However,  I think I just expected a little more for the price. But I certainly do not regret purchasing it! 

Another thing is that this product can be quite hard to find in shops! I recently tried to look for it in Selfridges as I wanted to buy it as a gift for my friend but apparently they no longer sell it. As far as I know, Debenhams still sell it if any of you guys are interested!

All in all, I would say that it is a lip balm worth trying, particularly if you like roses! However, don't expect too much!

Kora Organics by Miranda Kerr: Foaming Cleanser.

I was looking for a new facial wash and I fancied switching things up in my skincare routine. After some research, I decided to purchase this foaming cleanser from Miranda Kerr's own skincare brand. I'm not going to lie, her beautiful face kind of persuaded me to get it. I was also quite interested as it is classified as an organic product.

First of all, I am loving the tiffany blue packaging! Tiffany blue has gradually become one of my favourite colours! The product is very small compared to other facial cleansers that I've used (90ml). KORA does not sell any other sizes which is kind of annoying. The product works out to be a lot more expensive than other high end facial cleansers as you don't get much product.

I would say that the product is actually organic as it does not sting my eyes when I wash my face. This is a bonus as many other facial cleansers tend to sting my eyes when I accidentally get product around the eye area.

The product has been claimed to be effective on acne-prone skin. Although I did feel that the product was clarifying my skin, I did not feel that it kept the spots at bay. However, it didn't break me out either. I would definitely say that this product is for those with oily skin as it may be a little drying for those with drier skin. Surprisingly the product does not foam up that well although it is named a "foaming cleanser." However, this isn't a big deal although I do enjoy using cleansers that actually foam up. When I first used the product, the scent really did put me off. The product does not smell good at all, and this could be due to its organic properties. However, you do get used to it, even though I still find it unpleasant to smell until today! All in all, the foaming cleanser from KORA isn't  bad and it is a product that I wouldn't mind repurchasing. But...it is quite expensive in the long run and I think that there are cheaper facial cleansers out there on the market that may just be as good!

Review: RMK Cleansing Balm!

It's been a while since I was last on the blogging front! Haha. It's time to get back into the swing of things now!

I have finally used up this tub of RMK cleansing balm. I would definitely say it's a product worth investing in as you can get so many uses out of it. It has a pleasant rose scent which makes the whole make up removing process feel less of a chore. Like all RMK products, the ingredients used within this product are all natural. This has always been one of the reasons why RMK has become one of my favourite skincare brands over the years. 

Normally, I would use an eye make up remover to remove any mascara/eyeliner and then go over my face with some facial wipes. Therefore, I use the RMK cleansing balm as a final step in the make up removing process. The product is great for getting rid off any foundation that the wipes may not have been able to remove, and it leaves the skin feeling soft. The RMK cleansing balm is a product that I would recommend to others, and certainly one that I may repurchase in the near future.

I will definitely be visiting again.

Wales Wales Wales...what a beautiful place. I think I need to do more travelling within my own country! Haha! 

More to come!

Hand Pack!

I have been through several packets now. It's always nice to pamper yourself every now and then. Ok, I'm not going to lie and say that these hand packs work miracles but they're definitely comforting to use. There's a lot of product in the gloves and it has a pleasant scent. My hands always feel softer after using them but obviously, the effects aren't that long lasting. The best way to keep your hands feeling soft is to use a decent hand cream on a daily basis! You can still use your phone/ipad whilst using this hand treatment which is definitely a bonus. I hate having to sit still and not being able to move when I'm "pampering" myself. All in all, I quite like this product and will continue to purchase in the future. This hand pack can be bought at Home Bargains if you're interested!

June Favourites 2014!

I haven't done a favourites' post in a very long timeeeee! So why not do one now?

I was looking for a substitute for my foundation for the summer and stumbled across this one. I like the finish that it gives and it feels quite light on the skin. I would say that it is quite similar to the all mighty Vitalumiere Aqua. However, the coverage is lighter but I think it's acceptable. I love how it doesn't look too heavy on my skin!

Yes, I am still obsessed with this scent! This has definitely become one of my favourite perfumes of all time! Now, that is a bold statement! 

I didn't quite know whether to buy this at first or not. I certainly don't regret buying it. I haven't had it for that long so I can't say that I've seen any significant results but I do like it so far. I think it's a great invention and is so much more hygienic than having to use a facial brush. It would be nice if Foreo could provide a plug with the product so we could charge it in a normal socket though!

I've been loving this drama! It's been a while since TVB have come out with a decent series! I love Nancy Wu's character! Her acting has definitely gone up a level! I hope that her and Bosco end up together (towards the end of the drama) but I'm pretty sure they won't! 

Sorry about the quality of the picture by the way!
I bought this kimono for my holiday and I love it! It's just so easy to wear and it's great for summer! I think I need another kimono in my life.

Siwon Choi

My human favourite, Mr. Choi Si Won! Yes, I was crazy enough to go all the way down to London just for a glimpse of Siwon! Haha. I knew he was in Paris for the Audi event but I had no idea that he was coming to London for the Jimmy Choo event until my friend told me! So of course we had to do what crazy ELFs do and chase after him. Actually, we were very reserved compared to other fangirls. I kind of regret being so quiet! His charm was overpowering. I froze completely when I saw him! So did my bestie!

This iPhone application has become rather popular recently! I'm in love with it! Even someone who's rubbish at filming like myself can make amazing videos with the filters and soundtracks that are available on this application. Come and follow me @GaMeiFung! 


The weather was amazing in Barcelona! I love that place. The people over there seemed nice overall and it's definitely a place I would recommend visiting! It was a blast! I wish we could have stayed longer.

I love my travalo! It's great for travelling around and for your handbag. I used to have a different atomiser but it came apart. This one is definitely better as you only have to take the cap off your perfume and pump the perfume into your atomiser, like how you would pump air into a football. It's very convenient!

Hope you've all had a wonderful June! I definitely did!

L'Occitane Daily Use Shampoo - with Organic Verbena Extract!

This is probably the second shampoo I have tried from L'Occitane. I have used a few of their products and I have liked them. I initially went into the store looking for a different shampoo but they didn't have it, so I ended up getting this one instead. According to the sales assistant, this shampoo is good for those with oily hair. First of all, I think the packaging is cute. I like how it has a see-through bottle so you can see how much is left, unlike many shampoo bottles. It has a citrus scent which I quite like. The consistency of the shampoo is very different to your typical shampoo. I would say that it is quite runny/watery which I think is great. It makes lathering so much easier. It is a good shampoo for daily use, but I wouldn't say that it has helped with my oily hair. However, it isn't bad for a shampoo and does leave my hair feeling soft. I have enjoyed using it.

Empro 1 Day Liner.

This is apparently a Korean product. Korean make up and skincare are usually really good but this was very disappointing. I bought it as I liked the fact that it was a 2-in-1 product. There's a pencil eyeliner on one end as you can see in the pictures above, and a liquid (pen) eyeliner on the other end. I thought it would be extremely handy but I can say that I definitely regret buying this. It is easy to use and application is smooth but the staying power is just so bad. I remember wearing this in Malaysia for just an hour and my eyeliner smudged like crazy! I looked like a panda! I've tried applying both eyeliners and both had very poor lasting power. I definitely feel that I've wasted money here!
