Elizavecca Milky Piggy Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask Review

Sundays aren't meant to do work; though sometimes when the cards on the trello board becomes too in-your-face and the mind subconsciously tries to clear it -- I try not to. I took a little nap in the noon when the sun was pretty nice. My curtains were drawn and I had the night light on. I switched off the fans and slept like a baby.

I woke up to pack some of the clothes in the wardrobe, only decided to throw 2 out of the many (As you can tell I'm a hoarder), not very space-efficient. And I picked out a bubble clay mask which I've bought last year on Qoo10 when it went on sale, that I can barely remember its price.

Elizavecca Milky Piggy Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask
I remembered clicking on the purchase link after someone posted some video on it, first a clay-like texture, and then it bubbles, and you could press your fingers against your face to massage the mask in again. In scientific reasoning, it just went into a 3 state mix. Pretty cool!

A Korean brand and the entire packaging was filled with Korean words - I didn't know how long I should have it on, when I should remove and how I should remove it. Thank goodness for youtube and some review sites. This bubbly clay mask is definitely a pore cleanser. The charcoal powder ingredient helps to get rid of deep-seated dirt while providing nutrients to keep the skin healthy. We all know how charcoal is good for the skin, as with other charcoal masks out there. It also doesn't strip you off the nutrients and oil while doing so!

I could definitely see bubbly action after what seemed like 3-minutes after application, and then the next 5 - 10 minutes were just bubbles in action. The mask started foaming on its own, and the application on my face grew, and then a few instastory came after that. After 15 minutes when the foaming has lessened, I placed my fingers onto the area and started to deeply massage around it.

The bubbles would first crack a little (You could literally hear it) and then you massage it deeply into your skin and it's back to a mask-like texture again. Super cool! Right after that, I rinsed it off with warm water on a sponge, definitely helped in getting it off! And dabbed it off with facial towels after that. Ta-dah. Loved it!

Still unsure of what to do after, I put on the Cosrx Blackhead Power Liquid and Advanced Snail 96 Power Essence. Treated my skin to a 30 minute deep-cleansing facial! Here I am now, typing this away sharing it with you :)

A plus point when the packaging is so sleek and muni-like. Black-white, definitely YES!

I really enjoyed the entire product and how it bubbled. And I'm bringing this along to Justin's place so that I can do it for him, that tingly sensation? Can't wait to see his reaction! Till next time.

Just joining the fun at #ilightmarinabay

This weekend is a little special and different. I made a try-sell slot for my bike prac class that I was so eager to go for on Friday evening, not because I wanted to, but because my body did not let me. My fingers stumbled across the cancel button twice, the first I re-tracted the transaction with 70% direness to attend. After a long meeting that went on about python and technology, I came out of it feeling drained and sick (sometimes birthday weekends aren't meant for work), I managed to cancel it without taking it back. Someone bought my slot while I was on the train to look for Justin, and we had Korean dinner after that.

The night I had love to care for me. He came back from Malaysia to see me sleeping in the living room, and I had Spencer to keep me company. He laid at the end of my toes, I think I remembered stroking him to sleep. I remembered whispering to Spencer to protect me while I lay. Love woke me up to go back into the room, I remembered vaguely that the room was cold, so he fitted me a lounge pants and said, "I'll hug you to sleep." And then I did.

On Saturday evening we decided to visit I Light @ Marina Bay. I had no idea what it was, only the countless pictures I've seen from my friends on their social feed. We aren't always this quick about events and fairs. We would always choose cosy compared to people. But we decided to go anyway when I suggested we should. Justin didn't say no, and I love him for that.

Shot on Huawei Mate 9 on night mode. I stood at the parking lot and left my phone in front of my Fino, the moon was bright enough and the fiesta was loud enough. Everyone was merry, and the viking ship in front of me was roaring with little screams. It has been long and this scene was definitely a breath of fresh air. I am old and weary.

The night mode did not disappoint. No tripod, but a make-shift non shaky stand would do. I am amazed at what a Leica phone camera quality could produce. On days like these I really miss my D80 or the Sony A5000. Not forgetting my S95 that I am still trying to find a replacement charger for.

Dreamcatchers fill me. I always thought of them to reach my goals, dreams and visions. The web will catch them, and the bad will fall through the holes. A dreamcatcher a country a time, we said. And tasked with this love, we shall.

"In each time of life there are many forces - some good and some bad. If you listen to the good forces, they will steer you in the right direction. But, if you listen to the bad forces, they will hurt you and steer you in the wrong direction."

And again, you make my heart flutter and skip a beat each time I see you. Thank you for always looking out for me, watching my back, and loving me.
