BRTC Blemish Serum, Acne Aid, Cherry Blossoms NOTD (failed)

Wow, it's been one whole week since I last updated. What a lazy bum I've become. Life just ain't all that happening, I doubt anyone would want to know how many emails I replied at work, what I had for lunch, how many times I went to toilet, how many times I fell asleep in the office (which is none actually, I'm a good girl, unlike a certain sleepy head)

E asked me to join twitter. Considering how un-happening my life currently is, all I would probably tweet is:

3.11PM: I farted
3.12pm: I farted again
3.13pm: Oops I did it again

3.14pm: Oh Em Gee!!! my colleague fainted for no reason..

and so forth and no, I won't be joining twitter for now.

A while back, was it Bunny who asked me about pimples and stuff that I never answered. I never answered cause I was going thru my own war with them, one that I was losing. How am I suppose to give advise when I can't handle my own?

While browsing in Watsons I came across the BRTC Blemish Serum selling for RM59.90. Very tempting. Very very tempting. Took me a day to decide whether I could afford it and if I should get them. Went home to check reviews for it.



Hmph, finding out how big the Mekong river catfish is alot easier than finding any reviews for this item. Imagine that. So am I suppose to fork out that much dough and test it myself? Not that I have a lot of choice. Another reason being, I wanted to stop JH from commenting that I smell like a koala bear every time I put on Tea Tree Oil to sleep.

He has started calling me, "Bear, bear". That can't be a good sign right? Then again, bears has claws right?



So tadaa, carefully removed the bottle from the box and happily examine it only to find that it too has a faint scent of Tea Tree Oil.

&^%$#@ and a &^%$#@!. You &^%$#@@. Now gimme my ^$$#@!!
Not going to be translated


The bottle is made from glass and shatters easily (D'oh) so be extra careful with it. I've been avoiding putting it on table edges or any places where I can accidentally knock it over. I told JH that it's going to last me for at least a year so RM59.90 ain't too bad. On my first day of using it, I realize that this thing ain't going to last me a year. I'll be super lucky if this thing even last me for half a year. I'm putting it at four months max.

The texture is watery and very sticky. Apply on face and rub it all in. Thankfully the stickiness does goes away or you can stick some notes on my forehead and it'll probably stay there.

I've only been using it for a couple of nights but my face has indeed healed a very tiny bit. The pimples dried up, Yay!

Anyway, while browsing thru Watsons during lunch a few days later *ahem* Don't ask why I'm always at Watsons. My colleagues and I were talking about dermatologist when Gayle pointed out a bar of soap that her dermatologist has previously recommended. The Ance Aid.



I grabbed it. My pimples has made me that desperate. If someone was to tell me that rubbing my face with carrots would heal them, I would probably try it but anyway, happily paid my RM14.90 and went home to try it.

I expected the soap to be like Mior. Drying and then more drying. When I tried it on, I was surprised to find it nothing like Mior. It's creamy, lathers well and doesn't make the face feel tight afterwards. Nice. I have no regrets buying this. With the combi of BRTC Blemish Serum and this, my face is getting much much better. Slowly, one step at a time.

*Does happy dance*


I cut it into smaller pieces so the soap won't melt into one goopy mess and spoilt before I get to fully use up the bar of soap.

I wanted to do a Hello Kitty nail design as Shop n Chomp requested for but after the face shape became something like a messed up pancake, I gave up and quickly rubbed it off. In desperation to cover up a ugly white spot on the thumb, I grabbed Padios's Citadel foundation paints. Paints usually used to paint models like below to paint cherry blossoms.. or cherry blossoms look alikes.

As usual, I used the Etude House pink as a base then rummage thru for any brown branch like colour, draw a few branches which turn out too freaking fat. Then topped it up with JH's Games workshop white paint. What else could I do?



God, those branches are awfully fat..

Oh and my pathetic self has finally gotten a new handphone. Not the one I planned or anything but since it was a gift, I was over the moon.



JH quietly sneaked into my room and left it there while waiting for me to get out from the shower. Awwwww.. I appreciate it since he knew how badly I needed a phone and how my T9 dictionary has died on me. Sms is now a breeze.

*Muaks*

Ps.:
@Shenay: Saw your comment dear for one of my previous NOTD. Gimme a day k and I'll do it, I've washed off my old nail colour just for you.
