Enjoy a great discount and cashback with ShopBack

It comes to no surprise that I’m an avid shopper online. I spent about 12-13 hours online on weekdays which is a lot considering that I sleep about 10 hours a day…and spend the other one hour showering or getting a refill of my drink. I eat most of my meals while watching dramas online too! Weekends are the only time I’m free from technology since I would be out and about but other than that I’m constantly sourcing the internet for new beauty launches, new things I should buy or catching up on some of the latest drama.

That being said, I buy most of my cosmetic, clothing and household items online so I would say I spend a whole lot of money shopping online every single month! If I compare to getting the items from a brick and mortar shop, it would have cost me more to get them physically.

Recently I was invited to try out Shopback, a website that allows me to save even more than before! They have on offer for you an extensive list of popular online shopping sites so you can just shop as usual... but get the additional perks of having some cash back after you shop.

All you have to do is to look up the website/shop from the list that Shopback has, click on the link which will tell you how much you can save on (eg. Up to 5% cashback), click on Shop now and you will be directed to the shop website where you can shop as per normal. Your Cashback will appear at your Shopback account within 48 hours and you are able to cash out to paypal or your bank account once you’ve accumulated Cashback of $10! Did I mention its real cash too? A quick summary of how it works can be found here .

In addition to getting cashback, you can also save more with the online shopping vouchers available at Shopback . Not to mention, they are also a great place to check out if you're big on traveling. There's even a Travel Deals section for you to find amazing offers here..

It’s amazing how I shop at every single one of the website?! I use Taobao occasionally when I want to get household items, Foodpanda for my weekly food delivery when I’m over at my BF’s house (I wish I sign up with Shopback earlier though, we would have saved so much with the cashback!!! I also get my books from Book Depository, I didn’t know that people knew of this website but apparently Shopback does? I honestly wish I used Shopback earlier!

If you’re interested in signing up for Shopback, you can use my referral link here to get $5 to spend on any website of your choice. Money spent for shopping online from now onwards would definitely be money well spent!

Gobdigoun Skincare review

Korean brand Gobdigoun is an advocate for using sheep placenta as one of their skincare ingredients. While the use of sheep placenta (or placenta in general) has been widely debatable for use, some celebrities such as Victoria Beckham, swears by it as their skincare secret to looking youthful. Their products are dematologist tested and made in Korea.

They have kindly sent me three products for review purpose all the way from Myeongdong so I'm going to share with you my experience using them! I have used these products for two weeks now and I have to say, I'm definitely seeing an improvement in my skin texture.

1. The Placenta Power Gel Mask

What it claims: Placenta Extract, known for it's abundant amino acid and petide and plentiful moisturizing ingredients will help you feel surprising elasticity and moisturizing effect on your skin. Bio cellulose constructed with similar structure to human skin protein will help you feel comfortable and smooth impression on your skin.

The main ingredients for this mask is sheep placenta extract, squalane and macadamia terniforlia seed oil.

What's special about the mask is that it is different from the other sheet masks in the market. It comes in two parts, one for the top half of the face and another part for the bottom. The material used for the mask sheet is also gel like and feels super cooling on the face.
It also has a light, slightly powdery scent to it which I love.
I used this face mask once every two days before I sleep and I noticed that my skin is always feeling soft, hydrated and supple when I wake up.

2. Placenta Power Aging Corrector Eye Cream

What it claims: The unusual mixture of Niacinamide and Adenosine in the Placenta Powder Aging Corrector Eyecream will help you brighten your skin tone and improve skin elasticity will be enhanced by the exclusive ingredients of Palmitoyl pentapeptide-5 and Acetylhexapeptide-8 (similar to botox). In addition to all these exclusive ingredients, this eyecream contains Australian sheep placental protein and swiss alphine based herbs to assist anti wrinkle effect.

I really love the packaging of this product! The box design looks really interested, not to mention the product itself looks like a really cool pen. You got to press the end of the pen to squeeze out the product.

The product itself is thick, which is good for an eye cream and it does nourishes the area around the eyes well.

3. Placenta Power 24K Golden Cream

The packaging itself is really luxurious. It comes with a screw cap.
When you open it up, the cream contains specks of gold in it. The cream itself has no scent to it and you got to rub it a bit more to spread up the gold specks onto the skin.

It feels really cooling and non greasy when applied and my skin instantly felt smoother too. I like using this cream in the morning after cleansing my face. I apply a thin layer as a base before I do my makeup and it just helps to keep my makeup smooth and easy to apply too.

Overall, I think that Gobdigoun is a brand that you should check out if you're interested in trying out placenta skincare products. Don't let the word "placenta" stop you from trying it out because it is the same as other skin care products in the market. If you're looking for something luxurious which works well, check them out! You can check out their facebook here:

If you want to purchase their products, you can just message them on facebook and they are able to ship it out to Singapore to you! Major plus because you don't need to travel all the way to Korea just to get it.

Creme Simon 7 day Brightening Challenge

I've been using Creme Simon skincare for a while now and I can definitely agree that their skincare products work wonders for me. I've tried almost everything in their skincare range and I'm currently using their Foaming facial cleanser, Micellar makeup remover (LOVE THIS) , Dermo Activ Floral Serum, Hydrating toner mist and Night moisturizer!

So when they reach out to me and ask if I would like to try the Exfoliation Scrub and Lifting gel, I said yes!
Received the Creme Simon PR kit a while back which contained two of their best selling products, I put them to test for about two weeks now and there was definitely visible results.

1. Brightening Detox Gentle Double Exfoliation Scrub
This creamy gentle scrub contains 2 kinds of natural beads to refine and revitalize skin. The 2 kinds of natural beads are fine wheat particles which are soft and small irregular beads to polish and refine skin while the Jojoba beads are slightly bigger to exfoliate dead skin cells and accumulated dirt particles to unclog pores.
Specially formulated to be non-drying, it uses baby-safe cleansing ingredients for the most delicate skin. Unveil perfectly cleansed, smooth, soft skin with a lovely fresh glow.

2. Lymphatic Facial Contouring and Lifting Gel
Detox, De-Stress, Define. Aid your natural detoxification as you redefine facial contours and flush out toxins in a relaxing treatment. This exceptional gel turns into luxurious oil, as you gently massage face for slimmer, lifted visage. The perfect indulgent experience for facial massage & overnight treatment. Leave on or rinse off for immediate visibly brighter, incredibly softer and moisturized skin.

They've also included a really nice notebook in the PR package as well!

Zero makeup on, right after I use 1 part Exfoliating scrub and 3 parts Lifting gel! My skin is visibly brighter and glowing. My skin also feels smoother and I like how the exfoliating scrub doesn't have huge harsh beads in it. The beads were tiny and didn't irritate my skin at all, which was a plus point! Definitely one of my favorite scrubs to use.
However, I much prefer to use the scrub and lifting gel individually- I like starting with the exfoliating scrub first, then going in afterwards with the lifting gel to contour my face and massage it. It does get rid of water retention in the long run! After one week of using the lifting gel to contour and shape my face, there was a 0.2cm decrease in both side of my cheeks due to lost of water retention!
(I have eyebrow embroidery + lash extension on which seems like I do have makeup but really, I don't. Also, please ignore my huge pole bruise on the arm.)

Overall I really like there was a visible brightening effect which is much more obvious in real life. If you're looking for a gentle facial scrub that's suitable for sensitive skin as well, or a facial scrub made with natural ingredients, you can check out the Creme Simon Brightening Detox Gentle Double Exfoliating Scrub. I think the Lymphatic Facial Contouring and Lifting gel is an extra skincare routine step that might not be suitable for everyone, however if you're like me who wants to get rid of excess water retention or prevent wrinkles from foaming and don't mind spending additional time to work and massage the product into your skin....I would definitely recommend this product as it is worth the extra effort!

You can take part in the 7-day Brightening Challenge to win a full set of Creme Simon Skincare and a pair of diamond earrings! Details on how to participate is listed in the photo above.
Good luck!
