Review : Rimmel Extra Super Lash Waterproof Mascara

Mascara is always on every girl wish list as it highlights our eye lashes. I personally don't really wear too much of makeup on a normal day, maybe with just an eyeliner, mascara and lip gloss will do.

The Rimmel Extra Super Lash Waterproof Mascara comes in a simple black plastic tube with a straight brush. But the brush isn’t that great as it is too big for my lashes.  It does not leave a dramatic look in the first coat of application itself, thus I apply a couple coats to give me a little darker, slightly more defined and lengthened lashes, but unfortunately it ends up leaving my eyelashes clumped.

Before Application

After Application

So, I tend to apply only one coat of the mascara with just a natural look eyelash. My lashes looked completely average except for being darker. So far, it never flaked or smudged on me and it is waterproof that lasted me the whole day. However, I find it is so difficult to remove even with the eye makeup remover. I seem to lose a couple of eyelashes every time I removing it.

Naturally Abundant Looking Eyelashes

Generally, the mascara isn't that bad. It is inexpensive mascara for those who want natural looking lashes. You can always buy Rimmel London products at your nearest Watson’s, Guardian, Parkson & AEON Wellness for RM27.90.

Review : Organic Aid Vitamin E Moisturizing Cream

Have you’ll ever come across a skincare products by Organic Aid®? I know some of you may try them out before. Well, I’ve wanting to try it out for ages, but I hesitant to pull the trigger on it. Trust me, if you never try, you'll never know.

Organic Aid® is one such brand that gives the best natural protection your skin deserves. If your skin feels dehydrated, and you wonder why fine lines start showing on your face. It’s time for you to discover the amazing wonders of ‘Wheat Germ’. You might ask: What is ‘Wheat Germ’? It is actually one of the nature’s richest sources of pure Vitamin E, fully organic, and can be found in all Organic Aid® range. Does that sound interesting to you?

I am terribly excited to try the Organic Aid Vitamin E Moisturizing Cream. It’s really quite amazing to find that it actually do what the product claims “Non-Sticky, Non-Greasy”. In fact I love the gel-cream texture, plus non-comedogenic and hypo-allergenic. I have tried this product close to two weeks now and I must say I am totally convinced.

The cream is very gentle and yet very effective. It is specially formulated with Vitamin E to moisturize, soothe and heal over-dry or rough skin, leaving my skin soft and refreshed. It absorbs immediately and leaving my skin with a velvety feel. 

This product is definitely worth the money and I will be purchasing more! You can find it in most of the pharmacies and it's normally selling at RM14.90.

Happy trying!
