ANYOHASEYO! Oh wait, it should be KONICHIWA instead! Or maybe both since konjac is a potato cultivated as food in Japan and Korea. I first learned that the Japanese have been using the konjac vegetable as a beauty treatment for their delicate skin because it is an alkaline and is loaded with goodness. But funnily, when I was introduced to the konjac sponges, it was the Korea ones that were recommended to me. Anyhow, it doesn’t matter because I’ve got both covered here – konjac sponges from Korea and Japan!

I love beauty tools and gadgets but aside from my hair dryer, brow tweezer, and epilator that I use regularly, I’m really quite lazy to use anything more. While I may start out using a particular tool with enthusiasm but the interest usually fizzles out pretty quickly too. However, I’ve really surprised myself by using one tool daily for the past six months now! Seriously, I want to kowtow to myself for the feat!!! And what tool am I talking about?

Hands up, all of you who get excited with beauty gadgets! Okay, my hands are up. Yes, I am always thrilled about beauty gadgets and some of you may remember my attempts at rolling my face with needles. Okay, I no longer prick my face anymore and so, the derma rollers I have is now sitting somewhere in a cold, dark corner, feeling totally wasted. Anyway, I’ve moved on and am currently using the ReFa Pro Platinum Electronic Roller to roll on my flabby arms, bulging tummy, fat thighs and *ahem* saggy butt.

epilator Underarm epilator: pull them up up and away

Underarm hair is typically considered as unaesthetic, undesirable and embarrassing and yet it seems I like to talk about them quite a bit here. The thing is, I do have a problem with them. I tried to get rid of them as best as I can but well, they grow back quite quickly. I have considered IPL as a more permanent strategy of getting rid of them altogether but the last salon I spoke to scared me off with their pushy attitude and so in the end, I decided to get myself an underarm epilator.
