I’ve never been a fan of prunes coz they are sticky and messy to eat.  But recently, I rediscovered prunes coz my mom experiences occasional constipation and I researched that prunes helps relieve constipation since they are rich in fiber. Other surprising things I learned about prunes – it contains a lot of vitamins and…

Like Perfect Whip (which I last reviewed), I discovered DHC Lip Cream during a trip to Japan.   It was also in my friends’ list of what to buy in Japan. When you google for top beauty products to buy in Japan, it’s also usually in the list. DHC Lip Cream’s packaging (sorry, I threw away…

Perfect Whip

I discovered Perfect Whip during a trip to Japan.   It was in my friends’ list of what to buy in Japan together with a long list of cosmetics.  Since I don’t use make-up, I only bought the essential ones like facial wash and lip cream. So each of my friends had a basket-ful of beauty…

Susan’s Sugar-Free Cookies

Whenever I visit shelves of sugar-free products, there is usually nothing that looks appetizing. Most sugar-free crackers look plain and dry.  One time, I saw a new product line – Susan’s Sugar-Free Cookies – in various interesting flavors like Almond, Lemon Vanilla,Orange and Chocolate Chips, and Peanut Butter. The packaging is so plain that I initially…

Laurin 100% CocoMCT (Medium Chain Triglyceride) Coconut Oil

Laurin is 100% CocoMCT – MCT stands for Medium Chain Triglyceride.   What is it?  According to the packaging, Laurin is the healthiest part of the coconut oil. What I like most about this brand – it doesn’t have coconut oil scent nor does it taste like coconut oil. Yes, it’s scent-less and taste-less.   And I bought…

Marius Fabre Olive Oil Soap

I discovered this product in a store while looking for something else.   The cube shape and plain packaging made me curious what it was.   The sales staff said it’s soap and she explained that it’s shaped like a cube coz it’s a traditionally-made French soap which is meant to be sliced into smaller pieces, usually…
