Wa you really think I will show you. Not a chance.
This is taken in Japan. For the first time I discovered the usefulness of fringe—It can conver up a very badly volcanoed forehead. (Then again I think because I have really oily hair, it contributes to my thus oily forehead, and little volcanoes on my forehead. Then you proceed to cover it with more fringe, which aggreviates more rupture on the surface. Gross.)
My skin became terribly dry when I went to Japan. I had to slab moisturizer every few hours just so my face doesn’t wither and become a raisin. Lips dry, and knees and toes itchy (I dunno why!!!!! I thought it was the Umeshu but apparently it is itchy until today!).
So I had to put on more make up to cover up the flaws. Because we were going to nice places to eat nice food and meet nice people and take nice pictures! And I need to have a nice face to go with all the nice things! But the make up actually flakes off because the skin is so dry. This is like the worst beauty disaster in the world.
So when I came back to Malaysia, ha-ha, guess what? It became worse. And oily.
Now I have one enormous pimple on the left brow, a few smaller ones on the nose. And more on the forehead what turf.
So i either:
Go undercover (distracting caps and giant shades are my current besties) or
feign a severe sickness and refuse to see anyone
Play anonymous. (because no amount of make-up can hide the chan-ness of the long sleepless holiday. Plus my skin needs to breathe.)
I think it’s karma for laughing at Jolin’s Ugly Face. T_T
ARrrgh i need to take good care of my face!
A salon treatment or two would do really good now but hardly go out and i’m really lazy to go out plus i don’t really wanna go out (people can see my ugly face) so i’m thinking of some home remedy. Something i can do while catching a DVD or preparing a blog post or reading a book. Plus i really hate those chinese-pop-songs-turn-music-box melody in those beauty salons!! You know which type?! And those facial sessions are so long until they have to repeat the whole CD like 2 or 3 times arrrrgh tragic.
So i thought i would just go for a relaxing home spa. No need to call a taxi to go out to spend 2 hours in a salon listening to Guang Liang’s Tong Hua music box.
Check out the ingredient:
First i would use Garnier anti-imperfection scrub wash that helps regulate sebum and tightens pores. It says that the exfloliating particles of natural origin will also help removing blackheads and impurities.
And then followed by a pack of Garnier Synergie Pure Sauna Mask. Sounds hot.
I am going to use them now. Brb.
*prepares own music box melody*
is it that bad?? i mean your pimple prob?? cuz u don’t look like u have’em…and i love your baseball cap…
If you go to Japan again, buy some moisturizing lotion for winter use. Of course you won’t be able to find any in Malaysia, unless you’re gonna use Vaseline (eww…). Winter moisturizing cream and lotion are heavier, but you’ll be so thankful you have them on in the winter time, when the air is so dry. When your skin is dry, it will produce more ‘oil’ to help keep itself moisturized, and that’s why you have volcanoes in the end -__-”’
I already made full preparation but apparently still not enough!
No matter what happen to the pretty face, it will still look good after some time 🙂
Is this considered as one kind of “jetlag”?
I think the itchy feet syndrome is due to the difference in air humidity. I had the same problem when I returned from Japan. My friend also suffered from itchy rashes after she returned from Germany. Your skin is probably undergoing shock from the sudden increase in humidity in the air. But that’s just my guess though.
gasp really meh! but it persisted for quite some time. although it’s ok already
It’s lidat 1.
but your skin will be back normal in no time.
btw, u still look great.
eh, i totally understand lo. now waiting for uni to start and my skin is worse than when i was stressed and skipped sleeping. bleh. makeup also cannot finish covering all the stuff on my forehead. : ( wuwu~
make up to cover it is a vicious cycle
let me know how it turns out yea? my face oso like that….maybe worse…. :'(
OMFG Spotted Cheese!
You know the typical comic ones wtf.
i bet u’ve never seen a holy moly cheese right 🙂
It still looks ok. At least you don’t look like casu marzu
but u can’t wear the undercover sunglasses for long without getting dizzy! 😛
all i need, is a pair of non-lousy shades!
eh, how do you walk around with hair covering your eyes like that hah?
try washing your face with lemon juice (freshly squeezed from a lemon). it’s working for me. i had the same problem when i went to aus.
doesn’t the lemon juice cause some kinda burning sensation on pimples?
i heard toothpaste is good for pimples.
toothpaste doesn’t work for me. yeah it has a tingly sensation.. but it works anyhow. >.<
I vouch by toothpaste, too. Use it for blackheads also. Not good to use often though because I think skin is slightly acidic while toothpaste is alkaline.
Do a lot of hydrating mask and a bit of deep cleansing mask. That’s what I’m doing now lol.
u do mask one ah
Yeah. Pic of me doing a facial treatment here.
Garnier products?! Does it work? I used it before. And it did not work on my face problem. Maybe you should try Neutrogena.
how’s the mask? remember to tell me the effect after using it! 🙂 hopefully it helps!
i like the sauna mask! really “hot” one. hahaha!
wei. i know the blue brush thingie u bought in body shop one. right right right?!?!
I wanna try that mask, but I wonder if I can find any in Kuching.. 🙁
i think u can get it in major departmental stores 🙂
“Wa you really think I will show you. Not a chance.”
we’ve already seen it in all the other pictures. Girl, your banner shows a picture of your hand touching your crotch and shoes that are obviously too big for you. Disgusting.
guess you are too stupid to know that her hand was just coincidently lying on there…hahaha
oi, you hater~ get lost lah! you’re just jealous~~ bet u’re ugly as hell
doesnt work. i used it.
Moving to Japan’s dry winter climate helped trigger the problem. You are quite correct in stating you need to take great care of facial skin.
As long as the products you are using, accomplish the goal then stick with them. Something very important to remember next time you travel to a wintery climate. HYDRATION, the best way to keep skin moist is from the inside. In other words, one has to drink more water!
Moisturizing the skin helps, but that is only half the cure.
The fringe has one unexepected effect, it shows off your very very pretty eyes! WOW, you do have some of the prettiest eyes!
i have a more dramatic fringe now
Eh borrow me the Garnier hau yong (random Mandarin quote that came into my mind). I need it for my hot date tomorrow. 😉
Greetings from Aussie!~
Oi! Oi! Oi!
I know it’s getting old. :S
hahaha Huai Bin that joke huai oredi la!
Japan is really dry during the winter.
I would advice you to seek a proper doctor for treatment as skin products sold in the shopping Mall would normally prioritize commercial returns and the results is often disappointing and not per advertised.
I would recommend a range of product that is called Neostrata, which is exclusively sold by skin specialist and cosmetic doctors. They aren’t as expensive as the branded ones, plus the product is medically based. They are the founder of AHA and PHA. I am not sure whether its available in Japan though.
Treatment depends on the type of skin you have. Dry, sensitive, combination, oily.
By the way, you have an interesting blog.
Thanks for advise, but i’m not currently in jp. came back and skin has been much better!
not ugly at all… still cute de la…
This entry is an ad cos I just read Kimberly Cun’s blog and she also wrote an entry about Garnier products 😛
It says it’s an ad.

As long as it is labelled as an ad there is no deception.
no offence but if I’m not wrong, this post was originally filed under Cheescapade when I first saw it. Maybe she filed it under the wrong category at first
was my mistake indeed, sorry bout it.
thanks for pointing out the obvious really
would you be interested to try this product?
I think you should see a doctor about that biscuit-sized coldsore on your bottom lip.
oh ya how bout i dip it into some Meng Niu and have it for GMS and call it a day
Cheesie, have you tried aspirin? Crush one aspirin tablet with a bit of water to make a paste and put on your troubled areas for about 20 minutes. You can also make a mask out of it. Works wonders. Aspirin will stop the inflammation and speed up healing. Only thing is, remember to put sunblock because will increase your skin sensitiveness to sunlight. No need to buy expensive masks this way.
hey. 🙂 do you know any effective way to cure dark circles?
I’ve known no cures, but I do know that some of these may reduce them:
1. proper sleep
2. cucumbers on your eyes will reduce puffiness
3. Cool damp teabags (used teabag works). The caffeine in tea will reduce the discolouration and puffiness.
4. if you can spend some money, buy an eye cream that does the work. I find ROC is awesome but expensive.
If somebody has any ideas do let me know!
its my first time to use granier products. i am now trying anti imperfection. but i cant read its instruction at back ( written in other language ) :)) haha. anyway, i just wanna ask if when is to use the scrub? is it good for everyday use? and mask? is it every other week ?
