shu uemura spray, spray, spray...

last weekend, N and i went out for dinner to celebrate the 15th day of the lunar new year. the 15th day, other than being the last day of chinese new year, is also the 1st full moon in the new lunar calendar and traditionally, it's a lantern festival for the chinese. but for N and i, it's just an excuse for us to meet up and go looking for good food! hehe...

but that's not what this post is about. it's what we bought that day. after dinner, we went on a shopping spree! ok, not really shopping spree lar... N ABSOLUTELY NEEDED to buy some skin care products, as she's been going to work with nothing on her face! and seeing that there weren't any sales person at the counter of the brand she always use, we decided to scout around for other brands that we can try.

and so, we strolled into shu uemura (according to google, it's pronounced as "shoo oo-eh-moo-ra". shy only! all these while i've been pronouncing it as "shoo yuu-moo-ra". and i studied japanese for 2 semesters! :P). long story short, we walked out totting a bag each. hehe...

but this post is not about our impulsive buying either, or rather, MY impulsive buying (anyway, my skin care products are also running low, so it's not really impulsive also!). this post is actually about this:

shu uemura's deepsea water facial mist...


i got a small 13ml sample bottle of their deepsea water facial mist with my purchase, and i absolutely love it! before this, the only facial mist i've used is the avène thermal spring water and i've only ever used it when i'm outdoors. after a hike or an outing outdoors, when our face is all flushed and hot and sweaty...

then N told me we can also use facial mist in the office, when our skin is most susceptible to dryness due to the air-condition. so i tried it, and it's been one of the MUST-HAVE things on my work table since, next to my phone, notebook and mug. the fine mist just felt so great on our face, especially when our eyes have been staring at the computer for hours and our skin is feeling so tight and dry and tired. just spray, spray, spray, and we'll feel instantly refreshed! energized! cooled! it's really great for our m'sian weather... (i really should contact shu uemura about some sort of advertising fee here!)

shu uemura's deepsea water mist has 9 scents and mine's the bergamot (orangey colour). according to the sales person, their best sellers are lavender and rose. but i still love the bergamot. i've been spraying so much that i think i'll need to get myself the regular size bottle soon, coz i've already used up 1/4 of my sample bottle, and it's not even one week yet! *sigh* more spending! :P

yea... i also love the deepsea water mist...

Biow, cannot leave your face nude daily.. at least apply mosturizer and sun block, which are very important for anti-ageing...UV is killing your skin silently without yoursekf knowing it... stay indoor also have to put.. i personally suggest u to use asian skincare porducts... like shiseido and shu uemura.. which i found more suitable for asian skin..
