New bag

Hey there beauty lovers!

I have been wanting to buy a bag like for so long because my current one is getting battered by everyday use.

However, whenever I went out in search of the one bag that I could call my own (I am not really a bag person), I either don't like the colour, pattern or shape of the potential bags that I surveyed, or I end up buying something that I did not intend to in the first place.

So, when I spotted the beauty (read: my current bag) hanging at a vendor's display hook at the Air Panas wet market when I went shopping for my greens, I bought it straightaway.

I love the pink satin bow that is perched on it and I also love its deep purple hue. (So diva I hear you say? You are wrong. Its so ME!)

So girls, I am leaving you with a snapshot of my latest companion. Check it out and bring in the comments yo!

Mentholatum: Water lip balm with SPF15

The lip balms that I have been using all this while did not contain any SPF and it suited me just fine.

However, I suddenly felt the urge to try out a lip balm with SPF just for the sake of it and my search ended with Mentholatum's lip balm with SPF15 in cool peppermint from their water lip balm range.

When I applied it onto my lips, it glided on smoothly and my lips felt cool and minty afterward because of the peppermint flavour in the lip balm.

It is formulated with unique water formulation plus aromatic essential oil for calming and soothing sensation.
  • With superior MPC (2-Methacryloyloxyethyl Phosphoryl Choline) formulation which has high moisture holding ability to lock-in and replenish water on lips.
  • Enriched with Shea Butter Oil, Vitamin E and Macadamia Nut Oil for deep moisturizing effect.
  • Available in 3 aromatic variants: 
  • Cool-Peppermint
I tried it on before going to sleep and my lips felt soft to the touch in the morning after.

I also liked the fact that it is not as glossy as other lip balms. However, I can't say much for its staying power as I had to re-apply it often.

But I liked the fact that it comes in a handy, slim-stick form that I just could slip into the pockets of my jeans without any major bulge showing.

Buy this if you girls (or guys..ahem) need a quick boost of softness for your lips (especially for those of you who work in air-conditioned offices).

By the way, I know a guy in my office who uses lip balm. Though he claims it is because his lips is allergic to his saliva (WTH?), it is still weird to know that he uses lip balm. Not that I am against guys who take the extra effort to take care of themselves. But in this case, all I can say is...whatever!
