Review: Graymelin 100 % Pure Beta-Glucan

Name: Graymelin 100 % Pure Beta-Glucan
Bought from: graymelin on Qoo10
Price: $26.00 (+ $3.00 shipping)
Rating: 4.5/5





Before this, I was using Arsainte ECO-THERAPY ideal essence from TheFaceShop. Then I went on to use their  Serum with Essential. But the thing about skincare is , it has to evolve with your skin and well, unhealthy skin gets influenced by the condition around it easily. Ok, cut the story short, I felt like my serums didn’t seemed as effective anymore (It could just be me asking for too much) and I decided to try something different. 

What is Beta-Glucan?

According to the seller’s webpage; Beta Glucan is a “ Third generation New concept of moisturising ingredient”.


Basically, this product promises to deeply moisturise, brighten, tightening and relax skin. It is also free from synthetic fragrances , artificial pigments, paraben , benzophenone, mineral oil and alcohols.

How to Use?

Apply this after using your toner and before your moisturisers. Just drop a suitable amount onto your palm and then pat it into the skin.


The packaging is predominantly black and white and reminds me very much of Kiehl’s products; very science and doctor-ish lol. The bottle seems to be made from some high quality plastic instead of glass which is a is made out of glass (according to my mom lol) but it feels very durable and not overly heavy. As I mentioned in the video, I like the packaging as it emits an image of quality , professionalism and trust (LOL, machiam buying insurance) and makes for a good gift idea.

Texture & Colour:

50% viscosity, nice runny texture that isn’t too watery. Product is clear in colour with no fragrance.

Absorption rate:

Gets absorbed into the skin very fast, especially on dry skin.

Effects on the Skin:

Intensely hydrates without greasing up the skin. Did not break out my skin nor irritated it.


- Intense hydration
- Affordable
- Does not irritate the skin
- Absorbs very well
- The seller ships and deliver very fast!


- none


Overall, I give this product 4.5 /5 stars. I really like this product and can’t find anything bad to say about it. That said though, this serum won’t allow you to replace your usual moisturisers with it. You will still need your usual gels, creams and sunscreens to take care of your skin.

According to my Qoo10 purchase record, I bought the product on the 26th March and received it on the 29th March evening. Talk about efficiency! The product came bubble wrapped in a small cardboard box . The delivery guy called because nobody was at home and he stuffed the box into this little gap around my door haha.

Qoo10 Review: Olay Professional Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System


Item name: [Olay]Olay Professional Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System Face Brush 女人我最大 - Alternative of Clar
Bought from : LittleTots
Price: $39.90 (Original price $52 )+ $3.00 (Shipping)
Rating: 4.5 /5

Seller: Seller was very helpful & friendly. She sent an SMS to notify me about when to expect the product and the product came with printed instructions from her..

Delivery: Ordered in the morning (1am maybe?) of 2th September and received it on the 4th September! Super fast delivery! It came wrapped in a plastic envelope, I cannot remember if it was bubble wrapped or not but my product came nicely boxed (check out the photo above)


Price: I won’t lie, I’m cheap. Even though I tend to spend quite a bit on skincare, I still feel the pinch when I purchased it. When I first saw the price tag, I wasn’t that keen on purchasing it. But a friend bought it and had so much praises for it, I was instantly sold.

$39.90 is a sum that might be low to some people and too high for others. But seriously, if keeping your skin clear is always a struggle and you’ve tried many products without success, then give this a try. It’s near 50 bucks (depending on how much you get it for) but you can use it for around 3 months henceforth if you divide the money this way, it feels a lot better on the wallet. LOL.

But anyway, Clarisonic costs 10 times more so…

Product Review: It is the 9th September today and as of now, I’ve used the product for 5 nights (I only use it at night , my morning facial cleansing routine involves only water and sponge) and it’s save to say I love it! It cleanses the skin intensely without tugging or pulling too much and it leaves the skin feeling very refreshed and it feels like my pore’s all empty! It doesn’t dry out the skin too much even though it is still a bit more drying than cleansing without it.

Some people said it’s better used with foam cleanser but I just use my gel-like Cetaphil facial cleanser with it. I pump 3 pumps and just rotate away.

While it is not exactly a holy grail for acne-prone skin, as I still noticed a pimple that came out from nowhere. I believe this product is still a big keeper as keeping your skin clean means half the battle won in skin maintenance. This theory ties in with the logic that most acne-prone skin are unable to dutifully expel dirt by themselves thus requiring their owners to work double hard in maintaining them.

The only down side I faced is in keeping the product, especially the brush clean in my bacteria filled toilet. Thankfully, the entire product is waterproof so I at least don’t have to worry about losing my grip in the bathroom. The other down side I foresee is in the continuous purchase of brush heads (according to the website, it is recommended to change every 3 months) and battery.

But I am so addicted to how good it makes my skin feel and look that I probably cannot stay away from it for at least a long while. My skin looks smoother, pores looks finer and overall complexion looks slightly brighter and even.

Overall comments:

Awesome product, honest seller and speedy delivery. <3

Qoo10 Review: Vogue Tribe (Bag received)


Item name: 2013 New Bags/korea Best bags!! casual bags!backpack/shoulder/handbag/Men Bag
Bought from : Vogue Tribe 
Price: $21.99 + $4.00 (Shipping)
Rating: 3.5/5


Seller: The only time I communicated with the seller was when my 1st order never came and I filed for a ‘non-receipt claim’ on QOo10. Seller responded within 2 hour and refunded everything.

Delivery: Pretty fast! Purchased on 16/7  and received 22/7 which is very fast considering it was from china. I like how the entire shipping process can be tracked on Qoo10.

vogue tribe bag

As you can see from my previous entry, this is the 2nd time I'm purchasing this bag. My parcel was lost the other time and I got a refund instantly. But I still really wanted the bag and purchased again.

Overall comments:

The bag came in a plastic envelope. There is a thin layer of soft gauze fabric covering the bag, nothing more.

The colour looks quite different from the pictures. In the pictures it was obviously camel and I don’t know about you, but my bag (first photo above) looks beige to me. I had wanted to get the green one but accidentally selected the wrong option lol. The bag was bigger than I expected but that's good too since that means I can hold more stuffs.

The bag was slightly squashed from the transport and requires some conditioning from me to get into shape.

The craftsmanship and quality of the fabric is average. I would love for better fabric and better shape in the bag but with the price tag, i would say it's reasonable quality. I also have to Comment that the inner fabric is really corse and hard.

All in all, other than the difference in the colour, I'm a generally happy buyer.

Qoo10 Review: Vogue Tribe

Like I mentioned in my previous entry, I’m getting a bit too addicted to Qoo10. I’ve always been into Online shopping but now with Qoo10 coming in as a big brother to all the blogshops and establishing access to numerous foreign sellers. It has become easier than ever to purchase anything and everything you want. And since I’m buying, I have to give reviews on Qoo10. And since I’m reviewing there, thought I might as well review here too.

This is the start of my series of QOo10 purchase reviews.



Item name: 2013 New Bags/korea Best bags!! casual bags!backpack/shoulder/handbag/Men Bag
Store: Vogue Tribe 



The bag I bought was SLA027.

I purchased in 27th June and the seller shipped it out on the 27th June unfortunately, as of today 13th July I still have not received it. I finally raised a ‘non-receipt claim’ on Qoo10. The seller responded within 1.5 hour.


I have received the refund back into my Paypal account.

It is unfortunate for things to have panned out like that but I don’t think it is the seller’s fault and I still very much want that bag! I’ve been looking forward to it’s arrival since I bought it so I will try purchasing again!
