Tips while travelling alone

Hi Lovelies,

Always desire a trip on your own to a brand new place yourself?

I came by this blog post and think it is quite useful for you! It talks about 43 Tips for Traveling Alone.

I guess we need to be brave and not afraid of asking people for directions. I remembered once when I was in Florence, the people there barely speak English. And when I finished asking for direction, I was eager to walk away and without expressing my gratitude of their help. The waiter was mad and showing me some attitude :(

I guess it depends on your luck. We need to stay vigilant and always learn to be independent. I guess everything will end up good.

Black Paint -Organic Skin Care Range

I'm so excited to share with you my recent experience with Black Paint Products!!

BLACK PAINT® is an organic skincare brand established in Kyoto 15 years ago by Miyuki Maeda. Combining ancient wisdom of beauty secrets, modern bacteriology and contemporary natural & organic lifestyle, Miyuki has successfully found the formula to solve skin problems rooting from skin pores by leveraging on the power of nature.

Skin care solution of BLACK PAINT,
 Step 1 – Remove clogging from pores
 Step 2 – Hydrate your pores
 Step 3 – Nourish your pores
 Step 4 – Protect your pores

I'm always conscious about the skin care product I used because I started to have sensitive and acne prone skin 3 years ago.

So I can't use the normal moisturizer anymore or else my face will look super dry and my wrinkles will be super obvious.

Therefore, I give Black Paint a try because BLACK PAINT® skincare products are made from natural, organic materials which are blended from more than 100 types of plant oils! And it really did a very good job in moisturizing my face.

And the best part, BLACK PAINT skincare series is made solely of natural ingredients; does not use any any synthetic preservatives, disinfectants, fragrances, colorings, anti-oxidants, or ultraviolet 
absorbers. It is good for us to avoid chemical :)

How Black Paint Started?

The story of BLACK PAINT began with a mother's love and the search for inner and outer health for her daughter. It took much scientific study, but in the end her quest 
led to restored health for her child ... and a line of organic skincare that enhances the body's own renewal and self-protection processes instead of fighting them.
When the founder of Black Paint Miyuki Maeda’s daughter was diagnosed with a serious "incurable" kidney disease, her outlook on life was changed forever. Her inner fighter was awakened and she realized that the power for healing was in her hands. She would not stop believing there was an answer, nor stop working until 
she found it, no matter how long it took or where she had to look.

Miyuki studied modern physiology and bacteriology as well as traditional natural healing systems around the world. When she learned about beneficial bacteria, she saw the light. Bacteria that live symbiotically in our bodies are essential to our physical function, from digesting nutrients to protecting against disease. She realized that instead of killing those bacteria, we should nourish them so they can do their job.

The dark time of Miyuki's life has now ended, thanks to her determination to never give up the fight for her family's well-being. After the success of her "personal health study," she knew she had to share the benefits of her hard-won wisdom with the world. BLACK PAINT is the result.

So big the soap and it's solid. It is easy to apply on the face and it smells good too!

Ingredients: Soap Foundation, Water, Jojoba Seed Oil, Urea, Olive Oil, Almond Oil, Pine Extract, Charcoal, Palm Oil, Coconut Oil, Raw Sugar, Iron Oxide, Hydrolyzed Silk, Lavender Oil, Honey, Green Tea Leaves, Damask Rose Oil, Macadamia Nut Oil, Avocado Oil, Rosehip Oil, Grape Seed Oil, Evening Primrose Oil, Flaxseed Oil, Borage Seed Oil, Safflower Oil, Sunflower Seed Oil, Peanut Oil, Sesame Oil, Walnut Seed Oil, Perilla Frutesens Seed Oil, Apricot Kernel Oil, Hazelnut Seed Oil, Rose Oil.

This is my favourite :) It is made from Kishu Binchotan Charcoal

One of the main factors of why BLACK PAINT is black in color is because of its White Charcoal component. White Charcoal has been widely used in Japan since thousands of years ago for their teamaking (Chado) ceremony. White charcoal is made from Ubame Oak, a very hard wood used in kilns in the southern Kishu area in Japan. This charcoal, called Kishu Binchotan, takes about 10 – 40 years for the suitablely grown branches to be selected for its making.

Kishu Binchotan Charcoal is considered to be the best grade because it is hard and yields a long burn. Due to the hardness of the wood, the charcoal made from such wood produces a high pitch ‘tingling’ sound. Binchotan is also called White Charcoal because it is covered with ash during final processing, leaving whitish ash powder on its surface.

Known as the best quality charcoal for purifying water and air, the variety of benefits of Binchotan charcoal can be found in a number of everyday uses. Whether it is used to absorb chemicals in tap water, enhance blood circulation in a hot bath, stimulate healthy soil in the garden, or deflect negative ions in your home, the environmental and chemical-free charcoal is the natural way to boost overall wellness. 

Black Paint Soap

120 g / S$49.90

Black Paint Soap - Pore Cleansing Soap

A gentle pore cleansing hand-made face soap with Kishu Binchotan Charcoal (White Charcoal, A high-grade charcoal produced from Ubame oak made in "Kishu" area of Wakayama Prefecture) clean pores and removes oil and dirt thoroughly but gently without stripping away skin’s essential moisture, leaving skin fresh and silky smooth.


  1. Deeply clean pores and removes keratotic plugs for smoother and fresher skin. Discovered a long ago by women who visited hot springs; when the alkaline water of the hot springs touched their skin, which is acidic, it triggered the skin to restore its normal balance by releasing more acid and this acid pushed out all the waste from within, leaving pores completely clean. That's why BLACK PAINT is made with a slightly alkaline pH level to simulate the effect of alkaline hot spring.
  2. Removes makeup in one wash without the need of makeup remover XD Awesome!
  3. Nourishes skin with 23 types of plant oils, amino acids,  silk powder and vitamins in honey and brown sugar
  4. Kishu Binchotan Charcoal effectively absorbs impurities and delivers natural minerals
  5. Organic and natural oils improve skin immunity and minimize skin irritation
  6. No alcohol, fragrances and artificial colorants

How to use??

Review: Super refresh and it cleansed my pores thoroughly. It also remove my makeup instantly! Great :)
Before and After

NEW Essential haircare range- silky smooth hair

Hi readers,

Thanks to SampleStore. I tried the NEW Essential Haircare Range :)

I cut my hair and it's easier for me to wash it. I always have oily scalp and oily hair. I feel itchy if i'm under the Sun. Therefore, I love wearing a hat/cap for outdoor activities.

My haircare regime is Shampoo and conditioner for daily use and I will do a hair mask on weekly basis. I also apply some hair oil daily to curb my dry ends.

Essential is available in 4 variants to suit all hair needs and types:
  1. Nourishing Breakage Defense (orange) – for weak & damaged hair 
  2. Moisturizing Frizz Free (pink) – for dull & rough hair 
  3. Light Finish Volumizing (yellow) – for flat and limp hair 
  4. Deep Cleansing Care (blue) – for oily scalp & dry ends (new)

Yellow: Light Finish Volumising — for limp and flat hair

Moisturizing Frizz-Free series :)

Improved treatment now works its magic on your hair in 30 seconds! The result –deeply moisturized and manageable hair. Perfect for busy days

Essential is a popular haircare brand from Japan & it offers few products ranging from basic care like Shampoo & Conditioner to more intensive treatments like Hair Masks and Leave On Serum/Lotions so you don't have to find other brands for your hair products.

Do you face Oily roots and dry ends hair problem?!
If you do, please note that if you're using a rich moisturizing product to care for your dry ends, you will ends up having too much product buildup on their scalp & resulting in a heavy, oily scalp. Using a light, clarifying product to care for your oily scalp will then cause their ends to be even drier.Normally you need to rotate between using a rich moisturizing product and a light clarifying product to achieve a balance.

But now the good new!
New Essential Light Finish Volumizing (yellow) and Deep Cleansing Care (blue) variants have the optimum combination of Smart Cuticle Care & Sebum Cleansing Technology to target 
both problems of roots and hair ends. As a result, you coulld experience the best of both worlds with one product - airy light roots and moisturized ends.

Using the chart below,  I was all ready to try out the new light yellow series because both problem i faced. 

My experience:

Using them for few days, my hair is surprisingly smooth and silky!! I do not need to apply any more hair oil and it is easy to manage. Less tangled hair and New Essential has Microfine All Smooth Essence which delivers nutrients to damaged hair surface from ROOT to TIP. It is SO COOL! I could dye my hair twice a year already. Wooray!! It is important for us to take good care of our scalp by using quality shampoo and hair mask before it is too late.

Hair Mask- Frizz Free Hair Mask! I'm using the pink one!!! So cute the packaging! For more intensive treatment to treat those dry/damaged ends, leaving hair softer, smoother and more manageable.

Can't wait to try it out?
