How do I manage stress?

Hi guys!
As you all know
I’ve been under a lot of stress lately
So I thought
Why not share out how do I mange my stress?
So let’s start shall we?
Breathe
The first thing that I do when I’m stressed is to breathe deeply
I take long deep breaths and try to cool myself down
I find this very effective because when I’m stressed up
My nasal passages tend to block up and I need to pant
So taking deep breaths do help
Go for a walk
Sometimes you just have to let it go for awhile and just try to get your mind off things
So give yourself some time for yourself and go for a walk or something
When you come back
You’ll find that the work that needs to be done goes more smoothly
It’s almost like magic
Pamper Yourself
Personally this is my favourite way of relieving stress
Maybe it’s due to because I’m a shopaholic
><
Try spending on something that makes you feel good
Or maybe
Go to a spa for a facial or something
Obviously
It will make you feel less stressed out than you originally were
EXERCISE!
This is one methods that I use all the time
It is also the reason why I love Zumba so much
Exercise let’s your body release chemicals in your body called Endorphins
It is a hormone (I think) that lifts up your mood and makes you feel happier!
PLUS
Exercise helps you lose weight and stay sexy!
So why not exercise?
Guys
You will be surprised at how much you can lift when you are stressed about work
I did 30kg of Bench Press once when I was really stressed
and I’m not even that strong!
Girls
I know exercise is very tiring
BUT
Do try it
Especially if you do dancing or any cardio workouts
Scream out your frustration and watch it melt away!
Listen to some music
Usually I find a good piece of instrumental music like
Kingdom Hearts – Friend in My Heart really sets the calm mood
You could also try Leaves in the Wind by Isaac Sheperd
I find music plays an important role in my life
It sets my mood most of the time
So make sure you choose songs that makes you relaxed
NOT SAD!
Play with makeup!
This is for those girls out there
Excluding me and some guys who likes makeup of course!
Just play with your make-up
You will be surprised at how therapeutic it can be!
Apply a whole face of makeup just for the heck of it
Wash it off and feel your stress wash away with it!
Play some games
Guys
If you’re stressed
Just plug in your console or start up your PC/Laptop
and just slay that B**** Warwick and Taric!
I’m referring to LoL btw
And yes
I am also a gamer
I’m not just make-up and exercise okay
I do play on my PS3 and PC most of the time when I’m free
So please
Do not judge me so quickly!
So basically that’s what I do to relieve stress
Do let me know what do you do to relieve stress in the comments
That’s all for today folks!
Love,

Product Review: TheFaceShop HD-Perfect BB Cream

TheFaceShop HD-Perfect BB Cream

Hey guys!
I’m back with another BB cream review!
Today it’s TheFaceShop HD-Perfect BB Cream
TheFaceShop claims that its good for HD photos and videos
So let’s see how it fare shall we?
Here is some pictures of the product:
Matte gold Squeeze tube that is the same size with the Aqua Tinted BB cream
Which I done a review and you can view it HERE
I got mine is the shade 02 Natural Beige
This is how the squeeze tube looks like
Unblended
Slightly blended
Fully blended with a bit of grey casts!
But it adapts to skin tone in time
DEFINITELY NOT FLASH FRIENDLY!
So is it HD photo friendly?
In my opinion
I think it does a great job without flash
BUT
When flash is on
HOHOHOHO
Your face will look like the MOON
So let’s get to the product performance:
The BB cream is very easy to spread and blend
It absorbs quickly into the skin
Adapts to my skin within 5 minutes
It smells like some of the other TheFaceShop BB creams
A bit of a floral scent mixed with baby powder
What a weird combination
=.=’
It gives heavy coverage while not looking cakey at all
It looks very natural actually!
It dries to a natural matte finish
Giving the look of skin
It controls the secretion of oil of my face up to 4 hours
Then I start to get oily around my T-zone
It doesn’t make my skin break out in anyway
So I guess this is one of those BB cream that just satisfies most people criteria!
Conclusion:
Blendability 4/5
Coverage 3/5
Smell 3/5
Finish: Natural Matte
Would I recommend this?
There are other BB cream that has the same functions, nonetheless its still a good BB cream
However this is one BB cream that is more suited for oily skinned people
So dry skin people, do find another BB cream!
That’s all for today!
Love,
Evan Chang

Product Review: Lioele Have to Men BB Triple

Lioele Have to Men BB Triple

Hi guys!
Girls step back for this post
For today I am going to review a product for men!
LOL
Just kidding
Both men and women can use this product
I’m going to review for you guys the Lioele Have to Men BB Triple
Lioele’s version of a BB cream for men
Here are the picture of the product along with my face and swatches:
Product comes in a matte black squeeze tube
Very classy
The squeeze tube looks like this
Quite small
Able to fit in the palm of your hand
Product is quite liquid
Not very thick
Which means not a lot of coverage
Slightly blended
Fully blended
As you can see
It DOES NOT have a matte finish to it
It is very glossy and shiny
I highly suggest you powder this down to avoid looking oily
The product smells like your typical EDT
It’s nothing strong
Very suitable for men
Again
With most BB creams
It only comes in ONE colour
GAH!
Before BB Cream
After BB cream
It evened out my skintone
Hid some of the redness
However it does not provide high coverage
I would say light to medium coverage at most
This BB cream lasts a long time on me WITHOUT POWDER
Granted I did not sweat or anything
However it made me look very shiny the whole day
So conclusion:
Colour 1/5
Smell 3/5
Texture 3/5 Too runny for my liking
Coverage 2/5
Finish: Dewy
Would I recommend this?
To oily skin peeps? NO
To dry skin peeps? Maybe
To Combination skin peeps? Maybe
To Normal skin peeps? You don’t need it, your skin is probably flawless
To sensitive skin peeps? Try to this test this out at Sungei Wang before purchasing this BB cream
Love,
Evan Chang

Product Review: Vichy Eau Thermale Thermal Spa Water

Vichy Eau Thermale Thermal Spa Water

Hi guys!
I’m back with another post!
Today I shall review a facial spray
Its the Vichy Eau Thermale Thermal Spa Water
Now I know Vichy has withdrawn out of Malaysia
So its very hard to get hold of this
BUT
Don’t worry
Because there are other facial sprays out there
So this is how the product looks like:
The product comes in a white spray can with a blue cap
You have 3 sizes
Small Medium and Large
The one that I’m currently reviewing is the Large one
It is a pressurized can
So you just have to press and it will continuously spray out
This is how the spray nozzle looks like
It sprays a very fine mist
So you can’t see it
I’m actually pressing on it
Thoughts:
This products is just your typical facial spray
At the end of the day
It’s still water
Might as well put Green Tea in a spray bottle and use that
More benefits from it actually
It’s good for days where you need a little cooling off but it just does that only
Nothing else
I don’t use this so set my makeup
You can find similar products from Avene and Uriage
Conclusion:
I do not recommend this
It’s really just water
Love,
Evan Chang

Product Review: Garnier Light B.B Instant Fairness Roll On

Garnier Light B.B Instant Fairness Roll On

Hey guys!
Today I am going to review for you an under eye concealer!
Its from Garnier and its called the Garnier Light B.B Instant Fairness Roll On
That’s such a long name ==’
So without further ado
Here are the swatches and pictures of the product:
It is slightly shorter than a pen
It uses a metal ball to roll on the concealer
It feels cooling to the eyes when you roll it on
Good for depuffing your morning tired eyes!
The colour is quite light!
Sad for those with darker skins as it will make you look ashy
=(
It has a slightly metallic scent to it
Fully blended
It is very easy to blend
Just for reference I’m NC20
So yeah
It is that light!
There are several ways you can apply and blend this out:
Stila brush
Quite good for inner corner
Blending brush for a more softer finish
Even you can use the bigger head one
XD
Or the cheapest and easiest one
YOUR FINGERS!
In conclusion:
Scent 2/5
Colour 2/5
Packaging 4/5
Blendability 4/5
Coverage: Light to Medium
I recommend this to those with fair skin
But not to darker skins
Love,
Evan Chang
