Lets start with some background of NARUKO...
NARUKO skincare was developed by Nui Er, one of the Taiwanese Beauty Expertise (you will know who he is if u have watched the popular Taiwanese women beauty program "Nu Ren Wo Zui Da").
The NARUKO skin care products are designed to be not only affordable but they are also formulated with the most natural ingredients. NARUKO's skincare products are environmental friendly as they are not tested on animals. All NARUKO skincare products comes in an environmentally-friendly packaging. The boxes are designed to be simple and elegant on the outside but with beautiful floral prints inside. All boxes can be re-fold into little reusable box or containers.
NARUKO skincare products are also free from artificial colouring and fragrance and also parabens.
Enough of the background of NARUKO. Lets move on to the 2 products that I own.
NARUKO Narcissus Total Defence - Make-up Removing Mousse
This product is a oil-based make-up remover that transform for liquid into foaming mousse instantly upon one pump. The rich foam rapidly dissolves dirt and makeup, and at the same time deep cleanses the pores. It contains narcissus bulb extract and the patented Phytoferulin complex that revitalizes the skin. The residue-free formula leaves the skin soft, smooth and clarified.
The mousse is very fine and lathers up pretty well. Its does not leave a oily feel after washing even though its claimed to be oil based... not dry either. It is capable to remove water proof face and eye makeup however, I recommend to use a separate eye makeup remover as this product stings when it accidentally gets into the eye. AND IT REALLY STING BIG TIME!! It has a very subtle smell to it, very flowery nice scent.
How to Use
1. Press about 3 pumps and massage onto the entire face.
2. Add water to emulsify and then rinse off.
This product is pretty decent to use and also affordable. Will definitely repurchase it when needed (trying out too many makeup removers). 4/5
NARUKO Narcissus Total Defence - Night Brightening Serum
This serum contains a unique skin brightener that provides advanced anti-aging ingredients which repair, restore and firm the complexion while you sleep. It reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The skin awakens with more radiance, glowing and youthfulness.
Skin feels supple, soft and brightened up the next day and the results is pretty obvious. Not much effects seen on reducing of fine lines or maybe there is but just not very noticeable. However, it really helps in brighten up the skin and there is significant difference when u use and not use the product. Have the same flora scents as the Make-up Removing Mousse. The texture of it is not oily and can be easily absorbed into the skin. Not tacky or stickiness at all.
How to Use
1. Press 1 - 2 pumps and spread over the entire face (I usually massage in circular motions).
2. Go To Bed!!
Definitely will repurchase it. I feel it acts as a very good foundation serum in helping to restore the skin. Also seen the brightening effect of this product. I would not say that it will make you significant fairer but it will definitely helps in brighten up the complexion and make u look more radiant in the morning. 5/5

Continuing from my previous blog post about the New Crocs New You Fashion Showcase 2012. Bloggers who attended this event were entitled a pair of Free Crocs and I have managed to choose mine the next day at Vivo City Outlet (cos I happened to go back there for lunch the next day with my hubby and his family so I took this chance to pick up my free pair of Crocs).
Its definitely hard to choose from the varieties available. I initially wanted to get MELBOURNE II LACE in Pink which 1st caught my eyes, love love love the casual design and the cute ribbon on it but I ended up choosing CARLISA MINI WEDGE and I chosen black colour among the 3 colours available (Black, Brown & Pink) as I thought it will be able to match most of my clothes even formal enough to go with formal work attire. (will upload some photos when I have a chance to take my OOTD with my new Crocs!!)
PS: I think I will go back and get the MELBOURNE II LACE someday!! I cant get over my obsession on the ribbon!!
WinWin's Choice of Crocs...

It has been so long since my last update on my blog, sorry for the lack of blog post as working life is soo super hectic for me and toooo tired and no motivation to sit down and write something. Ok.. enough of my ranting... and straight up to my review on Bifesta Non-Rinse Makeup Removers.
I have been trying out soo many makeup removers trying to find the one that is best for me. Reviews of some of the makeup removers that i have tried earlier >> ❤ Click here❤ I have came across this Bifesta Non-Rinse Makeup Removers only like last year when i did a swap with my Christine dear on some makeup / skin care product. She passed me the Bifesta Cleansing Lotion in Moist and I immediately feel in love with it and it became my HOLY GRAIL Makeup remover!! Totally swear by it!!
Bifesta Cleansing Lotion comes in different types for different skin types and so far I have tried almost all.
☆Bifesta Cleansing Lotion - Moist (I ❤ this the most among all)
- Comes in white bottle
- Suitable for Dry Skin
- Contains Ceramide for Moisturising
☆Bifesta Cleansing Lotion - Age Care (Too sticky for my liking ✘)
- Comes in Pink Bottle
- For Age Care
- Contains Q10 to improve Skin Elasticity & Hydration
☆Bifesta Cleansing Lotion - Bright Up ( I like this too but i still prefer Moist)
- Comes in Blue Bottle
- For Dull Skin
- Contains Saxifrage Extract and Lactic AHA to remove dead skin cells & improve skin luminosity.
☆Bifesta Cleansing Lotion - Sebum Control ( Too dry for my skin)
- Comes in Green bottle ( I only have the sample bottle from Nuffnang)
- For Oily Skin ( I dont quite recommend those who have dry skin like me)
☆Bifesta Cleansing Lotions ☆
- Light & non-sticky yet provides powerful cleansing action just like oil cleansers.
- Gentle to skin
- Derivedfrom skin toners that contain oil dissolving moisturising agents. Oil contained in makeup is lifted quickly without scrubbing and give skins ample moisture while cleansing thoroughly.
- No need to rinse off or double cleanse (but i always do wash my face again).
- No need for skin care step as lotion contains moisturising & toning properties
- Fast and easy = wipe and go to bed!
- Contains Absorbent Hyaluronic Acid which retains more moisture that normal hyaluronic acid.
- Contains new plus0ion hyaluronic acid structure which helps to retain moisture on skin even after rinsing off with water.
- Hypoallergenic, Oil free, Colouring Free, Fragrance Free, Paraben Free, Alcohol Free.
➸Instructions to Use
- Thoroughly soak cotton with lotion (use about 3 pumps per cotton pad) and wipe makeup away gently
- Change cotton pads and repeat until cotton remain clean after wiping
- When removing eye makeup, gently hold cottom on eye area for a while before wiping off and take note do not let product get into your eyes (Moist one doesnt really sting but the others does)
- Double cleansing with facial foam is not required (but i always do to make sure my face is 100% free from makeup residues)
✿｡.:* WinWin's Tots *.:｡✿
❥ Will I repurchase it? Yes and I already did more that once.
❥ Prefer Moist one the most, Sebum one is too drying for me and Q10 is too sticky.
❥ Love how convenient it is! I usually remove my face makeup using this cleansing lotion and rest until i move my lazy butt to wash my face.
❥It does have a scent to it but mild
Disclaimer: All Products mentioned above are purchased by myself, the Sebum one was given by Nuffnang.
Hope you guys like my review on this amazing cleansing lotion by Bifesta. Try it out and let me know your tots!! :)
