Was working with Ms Zoe Tay yesterday and she was telling me about this eye makeup remover Q-tip. This is a box of 24 soft cotton tips that are individually filled with a pre-measured amount of gentle, skin conditioning solution to provide easy, goof-proof removal of eye makeup. The alcohol-free formula also contains aloe vera and vitamin E for sensitive eyes. A brilliant idea that works so great for fixing mess ups! But apparently you only can get it in the US!! :(
The ingredients of this cotton swabs :Water (Aqua), Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Leaf Juice, Phenoxyethanol, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E Acetate), Yellow 5 (CI 1934-21-0), Citric Acid.

Was working with Ms Zoe Tay on the 15 day of CNY and she was sick! But she still did a wonderful job and not a single complain during the shoot! She’s been down with the flu for a couple of days, thanks to a nasty bug that’s been tormenting her household. She was about to call in insick as she hardly get out of bed the day before this photo shoot day, but because of the tight deadline of the magazine plus all our busy schedule( the photographer, stylist & me) she finally make it. Once known as the girl with thousand face"千面女郎“ takes on the personas of six distinct characters with the ease of, well, a schizoid on steroids. Not to mention that she falls down twice in her four-and-a-half-inch heels while trying to dance and kick like a 1920s flapper? But Zoe simply just picks herself off the floor and goes at it again as if she were actually auditioning for The Artist. We’re beginning to think that a statuette of a golden bald man is not reward enough for the Ah Jie’s tireless performance today. Zoe, last seen on Ch 8’s Double Bonus, is currently filming the indie English movie, Mister John.

When we talk about skin care, lots of women who always will just focus mostly on the face and always forget about the skin all over their body! Although the skin on the body is less exposed to external aggressions than face. Hormonal changes, lack of physical exercise and repeated sun exposure, lead to a loss of density and firmness. Especially when come to certain age, skin firmness becomes a concern for all women, whatever their weight or figure. The more obvious areas affected are the inside of the arms and thighs, the stomach and buttocks, not forgetting the decollete which is exposed daily! Sisley creates Sisleya Concentre Anti-Age Fermete Corps - their first major global anti-aging skin care for the body which helps improve skin slackening and loss of firmness to combat the visible effects of skin aging and allow women to recover the appearance of younger and more toned body! This wonderful anti-aging body cream contain a concentrate of 19 plant-based active ingredients to combat all the signs of skin aging on the body, e.g. slacking, cellulite, fine lines, dehydration etc. A formula which combines the power of serum, the comfort of cream, the effectiveness of a tightening agent.
I really love the wonderful texture of this silky body cream! I do believe most women in the Asian countries areas don't like the stickiness or oily effect when come to applying body cream. This is the best anti-aging body cream that I've tried so far! Silky soft texture with non-oily feeling! Love it!
