NoTS Cosmetics | Review + Giveaway

Hello! Today I'm gonna be sharing with y'all a skincare company from Korea, NoTs Cosmetics! This post is kindly sponsored by them but all opinions are 100% genuine.

I realized many girls in Singapore always complain about their dull skin. Dull skin = Looking tired all the time. In order to have egg-like skin, you need to have a good and effective skincare regime.

So...what are the key reasons of having dark and rough skin?
- Not exfoliating your dead skin cells
- Using the wrong skincare products 
- Not having the important 4 steps (Safe exfoliation, Intense hydration, Correcting uneven skin tone, Creating moisture layer

And why is NoTs the brand that you should trust? 
- All products are made of quality ingredients that are 100% natural (Ps, you should always be careful about what you put on your skin!)
- You will see a difference in a short period of time
- Known as top natural cosmetics brand in Korea

Here's how to get perfect egg-like skin:

This is a soft and mild moisture peeling gel, which gently exfoliates your skin to reveal radiant and smooth skin. You should exfoliate your skin once a week as exfoliating often might be too harsh.

This is a toner to soothe your delicate skin right after exfoliation. Soak cotton pads in this and put them on your forehead, cheeks and chin for at least 5 minutes. 

This is an intense brightening essence to even out uneven skin and eliminate dark spots. It is light on the skin and is quickly absorbed into your skin while providing enriched brightening natural nutrition & hydration. 

Last but not least, use this spot correcting cream to create a moisture layer which protects your skin from the environmental stimulus during the day time.  While providing deep hydration, it also brightens your skin.

Even after getting radiant and smooth skin, you might want to use a base for your makeup so I have two products to recommend:

- Safely protects skin against UV rays for over 12 hours, which prevents aging and skin damage
- Low irritation formula (no parabens, fragrance, alcohol)
- Soothes sensitive skin and brings moisture and nutrients
- Covers blemishes, pores, fine lines and uneven skin tone

The yellow, black and red coloured capsules naturally corrects skin tone and smooths the complexion
- Minimises skin irritation
- Prevents skin aging and damage arising from UV rays

And now your skin is radiant like mine!

Bali, Indonesia | 20 - 24 March 2017

Hello! I just realised it's been 8 months since I actually blogged. I actually miss blogging and making youtube videos but I've been so busy. Promise I'll try to update this space more often hehe. Anyway, 4 months into 2017 and I've actually visited Bali, Indonesia, Hong Kong and Macau! So I'm gonna share with y'all some of the photos I took in Bali.

I went there for 5D4N and it was a school trip so our itinerary were pretty much preplanned for us. In total there were 20 students, 2 teachers and 2 tour guides (one from SG travel agency and the other is a balinese). It was my first time going on an overseas trip with school because I'm a scaredy cat but I'm super glad I came back SG alive LOL.

Day 1

At the airport, with 4 of my classmates! The rest of the students were from another course.

Anyway, it was my first time flying on Air Asia and I wasn't impressed by their service. I know I shouldn't expect much from a budget flight but they looked unfriendly. The worst thing was there weren't enough food and they served the food in a first come first serve basis so the front rows managed to get proper airplane food whereas the back rows got instant noodles. And lucky me got the last box of nasi lemak!

Okay la, not bad for airplane food

Touched down safely, at Ngurah Rai International Airport

Day 1 lunch was nothing but horrible. When I saw the food I almost cried and texted my mom "I wanna go home" LMAO. I am a fussy eater and I don't eat fish or beef. But sadly, every meal in Bali had fish/beef/chicken. In the end I barely ate anything for lunch.

Dinner was okay. Just okay.
Day 2

We stayed at Max One Hotel (in Ubud) for the first 3 nights and I really liked this hotel. It was clean and the breakfast buffet was decent.

At the ARMA Art Museum right opposite our hotel

Anyway, I realized there were offerings at every corner of everywhere I went in Ubud. Be careful not to step on them!
Lunch for day 2 was meh. I think I only ate the hard boiled eggs and fruits. The veg tasted weird af.
After lunch we went to visit the Green School and the tour guide brought us around. Anyway, the thing I hated most about Bali was that there were chickens EVERYWHERE. I am scared of chickens (typing this out is giving me goosebumps) and I think I was brave enough to walk past a lot of chickens in Bali although I closed my eyes and held my friends throughout. 

Dinner for day 2 was amazing. We had grilled prawns, sambal kang kong, grilled fish and fried chicken. 

We ordered fried ice cream and grilled corns too, but we paid for them ourselves as the menu has been decided by the travel agency in advance.

I was looking forward to tasting Bali's grilled corns but this sucked :(

Day 3

We went to be farmers and I did a pretty good job hahaha.

We had buffet for lunch on day 3 and it was sooo yummy. Although I felt like puking after farming (I think the cow dung was too smelly), I managed to eat a bit. 
After farming, we went to a bamboo weaving workshop and they provided yummy goreng pisang.
Dinner for day 3 was yummy too!
I loved the keropok in Bali I swear. Should've brought some back to SG!

Day 4

We went to a silver making workshop, and were asked to design and make our very own silver ring!

I made this ring with my name on it
We travelled to Kuta on day 4 and we had our last lunch in Bali! There were even crabs
but it tasted horrible la omg. Worst crabs I've ever tasted in my life.
After lunch, we did a bit of shopping then we went the Dream Museum Zone which is like the Trick Eye Museum in Singapore. 

After DMZ, we went to Discovery Shopping Mall. If I'm not wrong, it is one of Bali's most famous shopping mall and I also visited Kuta beach.

Lastly, we went for dinner and headed to our second hotel for this trip, Fontana Hotel. Tbh, I really hated this hotel. The toilet flush wasn't working, the water was soapy (I took forever to shampoo my hair) and the hotel felt nothing but CREEPY. Our beds were directly facing a mirror/dressing table and I just didn't feel good la. Plus the dressing table looked really old and creepy. Nonetheless, the hotel looked really beautiful.

Complimentary mocktails from the hotel

I guess those are most of the photos I took in Bali. I doubt I'll ever go back again but it was a really great experience. 

With love,
