The Sunday Currently, Volume Forty Three


Skipped a weekend because I was feeling under the weather T.T October started off with a bang, and it looks like work will be ramping up this month! Fighting! (。・ω・)ゞ


CURRENTLY...


WATCHING... Boruto: Naruto Next Generation. I lost interest in the series after the original manga ended. After starting on this anime out of boredom, I found it to be pretty entertaining!

UNBOXING... my package from The Stationery Selection! I am very pleased with what I received, and I cannot wait to post about it~

TRYING... out new games on my phone. This time I looked for a casino-type game when I want to zone out, haha.

THINKING... about the backlog of emails I will have to clear in office tomorrow. I was outside for an exhibition for several days last week, so I expect a mountain of tasks to clear tomorrow. (ノ`´)ノ ~┻━┻ ~

WISHING... that payday will come soon. I still feel happy when my salary comes in every month, haha!

LOVING... my freebies and loot from Cityluxe's Japan Walk Walk event this week!




Inspired by the original The Sunday Currently, here.

Skincare update! [September, 2018]



I got to try the L'Herboflore series (Garden of Venus) that I bought from Qoo10 some months ago! Originating from Taiwan, these masks have been introduced on popular skincare and beauty show 女人我最大 , and have been around for longer than I thought (online reviews date back to around 2013?). They seem to be only available online for Singapore...


From left to right:


♡   Aegean Sea - Marine Collagen Resilience Lift Mask ♡

What it is: Marine collagen can strengthen the moisture and elasticity of skin, effectively smooth wrinkles and slow down the aging process of the skin. 

Key ingredients: Water, Carbomer, Butylene Glycol, Sodium Hyaluronate, Collagen, Fragrance, Tocotrienols, Panthenol, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate, Glycerin, Chamomile

My thoughts: I do not really see any effects of the collagen, but the skin feels moisturized and calmer, especially around my nose. I've been sneezing a lot, so the skin there is quite dry. But the area was less red for two days x)



♡   Lychee Translucent Hydromask ♡

What it is: A thin mask containing lychee juice, a fruit that is rich in polyphenols that can maintain the flexibility of skin and enhance skin brightness. 

Key ingredients: Aqua (Water), Butylene Glycol, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Citric Acid, Propylene Glycol, Litchi Chinensis Fruit Juice, Trideceth-9, Bisabolol, Sodium Hyaluronate, Hyaluronic Acid

My thoughts: This mask smells SO good, just like lychee! Definitely moisturizing and brightening.



♡  Perfume Lotus Balancing Hydromask ♡

What it is: A thin sheet mask containing the perfume lotus, which is rich in plant polysaccharides and biotins that offer moisturizing, revitalizing and whitening effects. 

Price: Get 5 masks for S$13 over at Qoo10 (excluding shipping). That does make each mask on the pricier side (~$3.00 per mask).

Key ingredients: Aqua (Water), Butylene Glycol, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Citric Acid, Glycerin, Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Fruit Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate, Hyaluronic Acid, Allantoin, Propylene Glycol

My thoughts: I always choose hydrating masks because of the dry zones on my face. This mask smelled really nice and was sufficiently hydrating. Despite the scented mask sheet, I did not have any adverse reaction to it, which is good!



♡  Orchid Whitening Hydromask ♡

What it is: A sheet mask with moon orchid extract with a brightening, whitening and soothing effect. 

Key ingredients: Aqua (Water), Butylene Glycol, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Citric Acid, Glycerin, Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Fruit Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate, Hyaluronic Acid, Allantoin, Propylene Glycol

My thoughts: The thin sheet mask broke while I was trying to shift it around to fit my face ): Also, the top ingredients making up the mask essence are the same as the one above, so I was not expecting to see a difference. The fit was better than the TT masks I used last month though.

[Stationery] Sticker / Washi Mystery Packs from Taobao!

A quick post on my two mystery packs that I got from a Taobao shop called 北面环岛.  I was looking for a storage folder to easily carry stickers and tape samplers on the go, and I stumbled onto this one! If you buy the folder, the seller gives you 10 random sticker sheets. Super cute!

Yes more emoji stickers!!

The shop also has a link for mystery washi tape packs! They sell in quantities of 10, 25 and 40 (though at time of posting, they only have packs of 10). I got a pack of 25 for about $8 SGD, which is really cheap!

There are some daiso tapes in there lol.
Instead of 25 swatches, I only have 24 because one of the tapes was not sticky at all. You would need to glue it down, so it was more like paper ribbon than tape. See if you can notice which one is not in the notebook below :P




So elated to see this road washi! I can use it to play with my nephews.

The pineapple washi tape is from Daiso!

Love the tribal vibes from the dream catchers!
