revitalift Night cream

i am on my 7th day revitalift night cream regimen and all i can say is that after waking up in the morning, my skin stays hydrated and not oily. not dry and stay "put". not that obviously tightened but you can see that its not "old" looking.

the smell smells like lotion on my body. not medicinal. not fruity. on the neutral side.

after applying it, its not that cool. first few days, i can feel some stinging but no redness but afterwards, its gone. now i do not feel anything anymore after applying it.

i dont know if there's anything psychological about applying these beauty regimen about anti-aging. they say that the best is prevention and before you show any signs, it's best to prevent it. so here i am, preventing any disaster!

revlon colorburst lip gloss

i bought this lip gloss because i was given an ad brochure for that. so with a good advertising paraphernalia to go with it, i decided to try it.

true to the writing, it glides easily and is GLOSSY. true gloss. shiny and not sticky. when used alone, it serves as a lipgloss-lipstick. color is great because i got the rose gold one!

overall effect is classy. price is less than a thousand so its affordable.

revitalift contour

this afternoon, i will get hold of this. i will make a review if its really true. i am showing signs of a turkey.. i mean getting old, that's nearing 40 i guess... i can see small saggy features on my pictures compared to when it was 5 years ago ( of course, silly!). anyway, will get back on this once i tried this.

update july 15, 2011: i have been using this for 3 days. nothing noticeable but i can feel my skin smooth and moisturized. i did not use it on my face since the salesgirl said not to put on my face. i want to feel the effect of un-sagging but i think it may take weeks or more bottles for that to happen. ciao!

update july 22, 2011 : on the contour i can see some teeny weeny improvement on the edges but not so much on the neck area where i have lines. the lines have been blurred a little.

noodler's nib creaper pen

how i love flex nibs!!! they are so challenging to use but costs quite a fortune so this is my first and hopefully i can have my next one coming in few months time.

will take some time before i get the hold of calligraphy again...

by the way, this is care of my friend au who bought in the stuffs.. her kindness and love of pens too!

after reading the reviews on the nib creaper : these are refillable deep cut triangle nibs and stylographic roller fountain pens with ebonite feed and piston filler.

the nib does not really flex much and so my hands are working more than they should when writing. i understand that flex writing really depends on the nibs. i also read that vintage flex nibs are way softer. but of course, i can bear with this no problem with it. its just i also want to feel the bearing on a vintage one soon.

i will have to replace the ink ( the capacity is small ) and so i have to watch some videos on how to disassemble and clean it.

the downstrokes does not have much thick lines and i think it goes for the flex points which is not as, well, not as vintage-ey but for a good price as such and for a beginner like me, i can succumb to it.

writing on moleskine sketchpad. might bleed a little but tolerable.
