Cyber Colors, The Skincare Hydro Plus+ Range

Never heard of the Cyber Colors brand? I’ve only seen it sold on Sasa.com, maybe I'm not looking in the right places. Their Super Balancing Lotion is the first product I’ve tried from that brand. :P
Has anyone else tried their stuff?

Cyber Colors Hydro Plus+ Super Balancing Lotion Review

Here's a short review on CYBER COLORS HYDRO PLUS+ Super Balancing Lotion (120mL / 4 FL oz)

Description: This oil free treatment help skin to control oil production and retain its optimal moisture balance. It effectively reduces shine and tightens pores while repairing skin cells.

Directions: After cleansing and toning, apply appropriate amount on the face and next in light circular movements with fingertips.

The Cyber Colors Hydro Plus+ Super Balancing Lotion comes in a tall square, transparent blue pump bottle. It’s lotion fills right up to the top of the bottle, see the image above. I really like the simple packaging, although like most pump bottles the silver coating on the nozzle chips away from prolong uses. But that’s not a big deal  :P

The lotion is very light and running which makes it very easy to glide over your face. It’s oil free and I haven’t experienced any break outs from using it. I personally think it’s not very nourishing for dry winter months but this fresh lotion will be perfect for summer days. It still works for winter, but for those of you have a dry skin. You might need something more nourishing.

July haul and current giveaways

Yay to more beauty shopping, here's some of the things I bought during the month so far. I don't know if it's a bad habit or not. But I tend to buy things in advance and then not wanting to use it until the old one's finished. Or I'm tried of the old one and it gets thrown. :P Maybe its like the excitement of opening up a present, but as soon as it's in your hands for a few days, it just gets shelved. HAHA

I've finally got the Dolly Wink liquid liner and the false lashes in no. 4 Feminine Style! :D Then there's the Espie's lip balm Stephanie recommended I try. So I've bought the Vitamin E + Aloe Vera Lip treatment.  Then there's the Innisfree Pore Clean & Up Pack. I thought I'll try, after seeing some good reviews of the brand on Ningstar's blog. Scinic's Green soft Lip & Eye makeup remover, Cyber Colors' Auto eyebrow pen in 02 Gray and their Blotting film. Which item do you want me to do a review on first?

SPÖKA Night light, CLEO Mag Scan: Winged Eye + May’s beauty blog giveaway

It’s been so cold lately it just makes me wanna hibernate Dx . Even though its right in the middle of winter now in the south hemisphere, it was still kinda warm till late June but the temperature’s just dropped so quickly and there will be more freezing days to come. Ah I wish I could sleepin in my warm bed every morning. That would be so ideal! The nasty weather’s been making my skin very dry and my fingers are icy cold that I barely want to touch my face or skin. *shivers* Doesn’t help when most creams and lotion are cold too. lol

So anyway, I'm not sure what you girls and boys think of night lights but I’ve always had a thing for them. :P Somewhat childish but I find them super cute and kinda practical. I mean they are no different to a bedside lamp only its colourful, dimmer and prettier. *nods* Thus I bought this super super cute SPÖKA Night light from IKEA!! Yay!!! Comes in 3 designs, a red, blue and green which I bought.
