Review: Gran’s Remedy Cooling Foot Powder (Updated: 18/08/16)

       Hi everyone, I am sorry for the delay.  My partner and I are taking a break.  We have been travelling to our birth place, visiting friends and relatives in the past few days.

       Situated in the subtropical region, temperatures in Taiwan has been soaring, reaching close to 40°C during sunny afternoon.  In this hot and humid environment, my body perspire even just sit on the sofa doing nothing.   This is especially the case for my feet, which are wet whenever I am awake.  Looking at the bright side, I don’t need to apply cream during winter, but they get really smelly during summer.  Since we will be staying here for the next couple of weeks, I’d like to take this opportunity to review some of the products widely used here.  The first being a foot powder that treats the problem of smelly feet or foot odour.  It was recommended by one of my close relative, who asked my to bring half a dozen of pottle for him.  Does it work?  We are about to find out.

Review: Levante Class Tights (Updated: 26/07/16)

       They say “if you do the same thing again and again for 21 days, it will become a habit”.  Whether it is exactly three weeks, I don’t know.  But I have ordered another stockpile of hosiery, and they are on their way as I wrote.

       Levante is an Italian based company who offers a wide range of products including hosiery, lingerie, ready-to-wear for women, socks & underclothes for men and socks for girls.  They have positioned themselves at the upper end of the market and they have 5,000+ point of sale around the globe.  Today we are going to look at one of Levante’s basic essentials: the Class Regular tights, which is distributed exclusively in Australia & NZ by the Ambra Corporation*.

Wolford opens online shop in China

       I was routinely browsing Wolford website to discover that they recently opened an official online shop in China, well, sort of…  Instead of having their own website (as most of their official online shops do), they are selling their products through Taobao, a Chinese equivalent of Amazon.  Frankly speaking, it is kind of weird but understandable given  that China is a large, populated country where laws are not always respected; using a well-established platform can solve lots of issues.  I have provided the link below, see if you like it or not.

Say hi with your toes: Fogal All Nude Toeless

       Fogal has just added a new product to its All Nude series.  The toeless tights share the same features with its tights counterpart but leaves out the toe section, therefore ideal with peep-toe shoes or sandals.  The 10 denier appearance and the same composition implicates airy feel and great stretchiness.  All Nude Toeless comes in a variety of colours and are available online and in retail stores for a recommended retail price* of SFr. 29.50, €27.12, £22.66 or USD$29.98.

Review: Falke Warm Deluxe 80 Thermo Leggings

       My partner is very sensitive to cold.  Although she has improved a lot through diet and regular exercise, she needs an extra layer still, to keep her warm.  This is the reason why I bought these leggings.  A big “thank you” for both of us, or this review wouldn’t exist. Let’s scroll down to see what she has to say about these.

Review: Wolford Stardust Leggings

       When I first saw the press release, I thought “that looks like the shiny pair of tights I purchased back in the early 2000’s”.  Although I have forgotten the name of the product (not the Versailles tights for those wondering), both looked very much alike, and was targeted especially for holiday season.  Given that I have tried the previous one, I am eager to see how these leggings perform, so here we go.

Review: Fogal Catwalk Tights (Updated: 11/12/16)

       It is good to be back with Fogal.  I had a pair of All Nude Tights just before I started this blog, and though it didn’t last long, the quality and comfort left me with very positive impression.  Therefore, it is my pleasure to share with you my first Fogal review: the Catwalk Tights.

Review: Wolford Adelia Tights (Updated: 06/10/16)

       I actually don’t know why I have bought this in the first place.  My mind was shifting between Blair Tights and Adelia Tights, both of them are on special price at that time.  Ultimately, it was the latter that won the day.  Having tried it on recently, I realised that it was actually a good choice, and I can tell you why…

Review: Gerbe Ethnic Colours Tights (Updated: 09/08/16)

       Realising that the company has withstand for more than a century, I know reviewing Gerbe is a must.  Though I favoured more the Voile series, but I can only obtain what is available online.  So I aimed their most recent highlights for the summer…
