Sponsored Review: Bio-essence Hydra Tri-Action Aqua Droplet Sleeping Beauty Mask

Bio-essence came up with a new sleeping mask emphasising on their Bio Aqua Crystal (Technology) & Hydra Tri-Action (Ingredient formulation).

NOTE: This can also be used as your daily moisturiser, read on to find out how to use it!

But first, here are the stuffs that you need to know about this product:

Bio Aqua Crystal
This technology forms a protective shield over the hydrating ingredients to prevent moisture loss before application

Upon application, this shield breaks away and big aqua droplets are formed. This ensures our skin gets hydrated with the freshest and most optimal amount of hydrating activity.

Pardon my hairy hands~~
I'm sure you can see the droplets and I'm not kidding.. These droplets formed while I'm applying it..

The big aqua droplets are made up of superior hydrating ingredients of small molecular sizes which allow moisture and nutrients to be easily delivered to the deepest layers of skin, while the protective emollient film remains on the skin to lock in moisture for non-stop hydration.

Hydra Tri-action
Power Nano Hyaluronic Acid (Hydrate)
  • With an average nano molecular size of 15-25nm, it absorbs quickly and easily into the skin, making skin instantly hydrated and moisturized
  • Superior moisture retention capability to keep skin firm, plumped and moisturized
Hyaluronic Acid (Hydrate)
  • Forms a large water-locked network to effectively lock in moisture, keeping the skin moist and soft. 
Cranberry Extract (Hydrate, Nourish & Protect)
  • Hydarte: Works as a great moisturizer and aids in moisture retention, improving skin elasticity and suppleness. 
  • Nourish: Cranberry Extract provides excellent conditioning of the skin for a healthy glow. With Bio Energy Fluid which further nourishes and refines skin texture. 
  • Protect: Cranberry Extract is rich in anti-oxidants which protects skin against harmful free radicals, environmental and UV damage.

This product helps to combat 4 common skin problems:
  1. Brightens Dull & Tired Skin
  2. Refines Enlarged Pores
  3. Moisturizes Dry & Rough Skin
  4. Regulates Oil & Moisture Level

Directions of use:
Suitable for all skin types and daily use
Step 1: Massage gently till aqua droplets form.
Step 2: Gently pat till fully absorbed into skin.
Step 3: Apply a thin layer over skin as a daily moisturiser. For more intensive treatment, 
apply a thicker layer to replenish skin’s moisture throughout the night as a sleeping mask.

What I love about it ?!
It's non-greay & light! This texture is different from the cream we used, it's slightly matt and I feel that the particles are really small because it absorbs into my skin really really fast. Trust me.

It's definitely hydrating but i'm not so sure about the brightening part (too many brightening products to be used). 

As for the scent, I do not have much issue about it. The scent of products doesnt really bother me.

My mum is really into this product, she apply this after her normal facial routine at night. 
(She have sensitive skin & her facial products are mainly from Eau Thermale Avène)

While I apply it in the morning before my makeups 
(if you did read through, this can double up as your daily moisturiser).

Doubtful? Try it & see for yourself!
  • They have an outdoor sampling event on 6th September 2014 at 2pm to 6pm which will be held outside Mandarin Gallery. (find out how hydrated your skin is to get freebies and enjoy attractive discounts)
  • Alternatively, free sample can be obtained from but before that you have to like the page first.

How to remove: System Volume Information

I need help in removing this folder "System Volume Information" in my F folder, it appeared after I plugged in another thumbdrive which I believed it have been customised? Because I'm unable to pull any files or delete files in it.

I tried this: Command Prompt
Step 1 : click on "Start" type "run" and press Enter (or step 1 :Win+R)
Step 2 : in the command prompt window called "Run" type "cmd" and press Enter
Step 3 : type the drive letter and a semicolon and press Enter (eg: "I:" and press enter)

Step 4 : the quotation marks are needed for this step
type : rmdir "System Volume information" /S /Q Press Enter

but I cant proceed on to Step 4, after I entered at Step 3 this message came up, '"F:"' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file"

and this: Overwriting / replacing
By creating another folder (since mine is a folder) but instead of replacing, I was prompt to merge instead.

Any IT experts able to help me, please leave a comment if you have other alternatives! Thanks!
