Herbal Helper

I've been using a new eyecream. And no, I haven't failed the Project Chinese Jew cos I bought it weeks ago. My Ettusais Eye Zone Massage which I use in the day just finished and some weeks ago, I happened to be at the pharmacy in front of a big shelf of Himalaya products and the promoter enthusiastically thrusted me a flyer for their new Under Eye Cream. And I took one look and grabbed one because it promises to:

  • Reduce dark circle by 80% in just 4 weeks
  • Reduces undereye wrinkles and fine lines by 28% in just 4 weeks
  • Brightens and smoothens eye contour
And best of all, it costs only $19.90 for the above mentioned miracle. Hope in a tube? Maybe and of course I'm hoping it's not just hope but facts...but since I need an eye cream for the day, I'm sold!

I've used it for about a bit more than two weeks now and well, the dark rings have yet to disappeared by 80% but it kinda works and I do like the texture of the cream. It's a light cream texture that gets absorbed quickly and there's no smell to it so I guess it should be suitable for sensitive skin. It's okay for the day but I find it not rich enough for me for night use so I use it before my Estee Lauder eye cream cos I sleep in freezing cold air con (the only way I can really sleep unfortunately). Thing is, I must say it's good with puffiness thus far cos I do feel the eye area a bit "tighter" than usual and not as puffy and my dark circles are a bit less obvious too!!...though it's definitely not by 80%...but thing is, how the hell do you measure the "dark-circle-ness" anyway??? These days, I'm actually wearing less concealer so I think it works and so it's worth a try!!!  But I'll have to wait for a month later before I can report back on whether it delivers the promise of banishing 80% of the dark circles...

Oh I should also update on how my natural lash extension is doing. It did fine and lasted about 3 weeks weeks (Click Here to read the old post) ! They haven't fallen off yet but some did come off which is normal and I got it redone yesterday cos I'm a bit of a perfectionist and I get paranoid when people stare at my imperfect lashes! But if I'm not so anal, I'm sure it can last for at least a month.

Anyway, I think I'm gonna stick to the natural version cos it's more comfortable to wear them and the most important thing is that, it doesn't hurt that lashes that much! When I was doing the barbie doll thick lash extension, a lot of eye lashes dropped off when I removed the extension and the lash line looked really sparse and sad..a far cry from my natural, pre-extension lashes. With the natural extension, the lashes don't really drop off, maybe one or two which is normal anyway but they definitely look a hell lot healthier and denser. So I guess, natural looking extension it will be for a loooong while now!!!

another way to help your Project Chinese Jew is probably to not sleep with a freezing cold air con. Progressively up the temperature until you are able to sleep with a cool air con instead of a freezing one.

It should help your pockets in terms of utility bills.

No WAYYYY!!!!!!! I cannot compromise on aircon cos I will not be able to sleep. Spoilt I know but really, no aircon, no shut-eye. So that's something you can't touch!

Anyway, I'm pleased to report that I haven't taken the cab to work this week other than Monday and that's cos I can claim it back. Hahah...

not asking u to turn off la. just up the temp a little.

Wow! Which means you manage to wake at 7am?

B said...

Can't turn the temperature down cos I would heat up. I'm a polar bear so air con is non-negotiable. I perspire too damn much and too damn easily :(

Haha yes, been waking up at 7am and tomorrow at 630am cos I have meeting at 730am...fml! Oh you should help me with Project Chinese Jew by clicking on the ads on my blog lah! When you see them that is. LoL
