So I've been using this cream cleanser for a couple of months now.
I actually got it whilst I was travelling in Thailand for a mere £3.00. It is a 'deep cleanser' and most people use this as a make up remover which, I must say, works really well. However, I use it as a cleanser AFTER I wash my face.
I just use a dab of this cream and massage it onto my face and neck. Then I wipe it off with some water-damp cotton to prevent it from clogging pores (the instructions actually state to wash your face off or wipe it with a cotton). And as you can see, all the remaining dirt that my normal facial wash couldn't remove was actually swept away with the use of this excellent cleanser.
What do I love more about this cream? Texture - unlike other products which leave you feeling oily/greasy, this cream has a very soft texture to it and it actually leaves my face supple, almost velvety to touchCleanser PLUS Moisturiser - After using this cream, I no longer feel the need to moisturise…
Only two weeks to go before my debut poetry pamphlet is officially out from V. Press.
But I'll let you take a peek at how it looks like (on the outside)
So, what is Rice & Rain about? It is a snippet of my journey and identity. It's about distant homelands, culture, and human connections. However, if you really want to find out more about it, I feel that my endorsers, Jane Commane and Jane Seabourne describe it best. Read their comments HERE
I'm thankful to Ruth Stacey for its beautiful cover. Sarah, my editor, asked me if I had an idea of what kind of design cover I'd like. I wanted something to do with "stalks of rice" and Ruth really captured this idea. Looking at it now, this reminds me of the Filipino proverb my mum used to tell me: "Parisan ang palay, habang nagkakalaman ay lalong nagpupugay"
It translates to something like: Be like a rice stalk, the more grains it bears, the lower it bows.
I will forever be humble and grateful to everyo…
I'm going to read my poetry at the first-ever Wolverhampton Literature Festival in January 28 and I want all of you to come, please :-) I promise you won't be disappointed and you will enjoy your time listening to my work :-)
It will be on January 28, from 4:15pm to 6:15pm at Wolverhampton Art Gallery.
With me, are fellow poets/writers who will also read their work, and there will be a chance for Q&A at the end of the performance.
