Biore has revamped their Cleansing Oil Cotton Facial Sheet a.k.a makeup remover wipes. I have been a fan of Biore's makeup remover wipes since I learnt to doll up myself.  I am so lazy that I hope my makeup will remove by itself after I get home. And I can't find anything easier than a swipe of the wipe to get my face clean. It's is proven mild for my skin (sensitive) and completely lazy-proof for people like me.

Comparing the Old & New Packaging Design
Left: New & Right:Old
The newer package looks prettier in the exterior design as compared to the old one. The designer must really know how to capture ladies' hearts, as the sides are coated with laces and pink designs ~ 

For the interior, the new packaging has solve the issue which I had faced - difficulty in refilling as it's difficult to open the box from the bottom. I was so glad that we can easily open the lid to use and to refill the wipes.
And also a significant changes made will be the opening of the wipes. It used to be smaller and requires more tug and pull to get the wipes out but it's a breeze now.

Some improvements made to Biore's already awesome makeup remover wipes

  • Speedier Makeup Removal (20% more cleansing oil)
  • Gentler to Skin (50% less wiping required)
  • Moist Skin (Enriched with hydrating beauty essence)
  • Air Tight Tub (Improvised sealing performance)

Testing the Effectiveness of Biore's  Cleansing Oil Cotton Facial Sheet
That's like me with light make up on the left, whereas on the right is having half of my face cleansed in ONE swipe. I'm really sorry about my eyebrow, I had some stitches after a fall and I didn't dare to do threading yet so it's bushy and messy ):
Anyway, I managed to cleanse like 80% of my make up (half face) with just one swipe! The remaining are eyeliners smudge that aren't properly wiped away which proves that the wipe is really effective in removing make up. I didn't even need to wipe it repeatedly, just a couple of time and there you have a clean and bare face. Furthermore, my skin feel 'toing-toing' right after cleansing as thought as I just washed my face and it's yet not too oily that my face cannot accept it. Best of all is, you will only need one wipe to cleanse the whole face, talk about saving money & time using it.

Regular Box - $17.90
Refill Pack - $15.60

I'm sure you guys remembered about me and my rant about going all healthy and stuffs, so I did it!
I attended California Fitness FIT Start Program and had more knowledge about doing the right workout to drill our body the way we want it to be.

FIT Start Program
FIT Start training with one of the fitness professionals, is one of the most effective ways of getting started on the right track towards achieving fitness goals. Many people are often lost in their way of exercising, however it may be in the wrong direction. Now with fitness pro to guide you along the way, you can easily achieve what you wanted. The FIT Start Program includes introduction of Xpress Zone circuit of resistance training equipment, providing a basis upon which to build a personalized fitness program.

My Very First Trip to California Fitness @ Takashimaya
Clicked on Level 8 & surprised to see that almost half of the passengers are heading there too. It's my first visit and I only been to a few other gyms but none as large and fully equipped like California Fitness @ Taka. Upon entering, I was asked to leave my bags in lockers (do rmb to bring your own lock for safe keeping) before heading back to the main lobby area to measure my Body Composition by my fitness instructor or simply FI because I forgotten his name after doing so tiresome workout.

Body Composition
Weight: 65kg
Muscle Mass: 24.1kg
Body Fat Mass: 20.9kg
Muscle Fat Control
+1.5kg Muscle 
-7.3kg Fat
Fitness Score 71

Overall, my report isn't bad but I still need to lose 7kg of my fats ): After gotten our body report, FI analyzed and break down the individual issue with us and asked about our goals before we get started on the real deal. So mine is definitely to lose all these fats before attaining some sexy abs.

We were brought to the training area shortly, different group of people are doing different type of training exercise and for mine, we are doing TRX.

TRX involves using heavy-duty nylon webbing attached to wall brackets. Its main purpose is to utilize our body weight to build strength, balance, flexibility and core stability.

We did like 5 sets of exercise with only one rep each to test out, however the real training won't be so 'chicken-feet' I think I look quite weak in those photo, probably because I'm a noobie. 
 Okay here goes nothing, at least to prove that I'm working towards my goal as I'm doing it.
It may look easy but as it goes, we were so tired that we stop talking or laughing like we did at the start. I guess we just need more practices, and after the whole experience, I learned that my main weakness is arms and need more training.

Take photo. 
Especially when the lifts are so packed

Through FIT Start Program, I understand that it's a way where instructor guides and brings you on the right track. They analyze your body composition and plans the best training routine for you and increasingly making it tougher so your body will not get used to it, so as to prevent stagnant in your training. It's a good way for people who needs motivation and guidance because you have everything here and I believe it's even harder to cheat or quit when there's a professional helping you.
