First Impression and Unboxing - SJ400 Air Wifi Action Camera from SJCam

A few days ago I finally received my SJ400 Air Action Camera from SJCam Philippines via Lazada. I got it for Php 2249.00 only. I was actually debating between this and the regular SJ400 Action Camera as the price difference isnt that much but I went for this anyway.


Actual box and the label

On the lower left side are the specifications of the camera for easy checking. The camera claims to be 4K capable with Full HD and with a 2 inch view-able screen. Cool!


The camera itself is housed in a plastic casing and is easily seen when looking at the box. I personally like the simple packaging as it looks classy for me.


On the side of the box you can see whats included in the package: the camera itself, camera waterproof case and some accessories.





To verify the authenticity of the item theres a scratch box on the other side for verification purposes. To download the phone application to be used for the camera, I just scanned the bar code here.



This is where the accessories are. I so love the box and the gold like embossed label for accessories! Nothing special on the inside though, but still A+ for the packaging.



The standard package includes the manual and some stickers, plus the USB cord/wire for charging and for file transfer. Note that theres no plug/adapter included so you have to buy one or just plug through a power bank or computer to charge.


These are the free accessories. I dont really know if I need them but its good to know that I have them for free. I have way more accessories on my Xiaomi YI Cam compared to these, but we will see if I can really use it all.



And the camera! I chose the black color. Matte black I think? Because I love black. Plain and simple. The case is also very nice. It isnt like your generic waterproof casing. I had a hard time opening the case because of its lock feature plus it also is very sturdy, hard and secure in my opinion.


These are the buttons on the right side for navigation purposes on the camera. Can you see the thick border rim on the camera lens part? 


Theres the power button in front of the camera.


Theres another button on top of the camera as well for navigation and for taking pictures. And the notorious lock for the case that had me puzzled for a good 5 minutes jsut thinking about how to open the case lol.


On the other side is where the USB slot is, plus another slot for HDMI I think? I kinda forgot sorry.


And of course, the 2 inch screen on the back for viewing whenever you're taking photos, videos or just simply doing a playback of what you've taken so far.


You can connect the camera on to your phone via WIFI for easy navigation specially in taking pictures.


It comes with the manual written in English and other languages, whichever you prefer.


Here's a quick guide for the navigation buttons.


Here's a side by side comparison of my Xiaomi YI Cam and the SJ400 Air Action Camera. Roughly the same sizes and the design, with the excemption of some navigation button placement. I love the quality of my photos on my YI Cam so I hope the SJ400 Air can deliver good results too.



Battery and the SD Card. Battery is free of course but the SD card will be a separate purchase.


The battery packs 900mAh which doesn't seem that much so you might want to consider buying a second battery. I am currently in the hunt for another one to pack just in case.


In the flesh! I really love the matte black design and color.




This is where the battery is placed. Just open the lock and insert the battery.


The SD Card slot is located on the same side as the USB slot too.


I havent used the camera yet due to work schedule but I plan to use it next month on a trip to Bantayan Island. I am really excited about using it and see what the outcome would be, but here's a sample shot that I accidentally have taken while the checking the camera. Not too bad, eh?


Once I can use the camera I will be posting more sample pictures and videos and maybe a review if I am not busy.

REVIEW: Megan Peel Off Clay Mask (Detoxifying and Lightening) with Charcoal Extract

Today's post will be a review of my holy grail peel off clay mask - Megan Peel Off Clay Mask! I have a lot of whiteheads which seems to be unlimited, and this is the only thing so far that can help me get rid of them.

I bought this from a local mall for Php 25.00 only per sachet, and it could last me a few uses. Be wary though as application can be a bit messy as the product is so sticky so sometimes I feel too lazy because of the mess but every time I see the results after application, I feel rewarded.


It claims to help remove impurities and lighten skin, but this is something that I am yet to see as an effect. But as a peel off mask, it does wonders with my whiteheads! Looking at the mask after removal is so satisfying, and gross at the same time lol.


HOW TO USE:

  1. Apply evenly to clean face, avoiding the eye area.
  2. Leave on for 15 to 20 minutes, or until it has fully dried up.
  3. Gently peel off the mask from the bottom towards the top.
  4. Rinse with warm water and remove any excess.

And this is how it looks when applied. If Im lazy, I only apply it to my nose and T-zone area and the chin part as thats where most of my whiteheads are. But on days that I feel like pampering myself, I apply it to my whole face instead.


You will know that the mask has dried up because it will look a little less black, compared to when first applied. Just a heads up, it can be a little painful to remove, most of the time I am crying while removing it.


I was debating whether I should put the mask after removing with, with all the dirt and whiteheads but it might gross out some people so I opted not to. But if you can try this one out, trust me it really works! I am yet to find another product that works better than this, so for now this is my absolute favorite when it comes to whitehead removal.

January Haul: Korean Beauty Products

I bought a few Korean products for pre order last December, and finally they have arrived Hurray! What I really love about pre orders is the sense of surprise it gives me everytime my package is delivered as I tend to forget about things I ordered.

I only bought a few essentials, a.k.a. things that were forever on my "to buy list". This would also be my birthday/Christmas gift to myself :)

L-R: Foodholic Acerola Brightening Foam Cleansing Facial Wash, Etude House Baking Powder Pore Cleansing Foam, Foodholic Jeju Healing Toner in Canola Flower, Care:Nel Lip Sleeping Mask (Original), Care:Nel Lip Sleeping Mask (Lime)

Etude House Baking Powder Pore Cleansing Foam

I know a lot of people were raving about this product as it seems to be really effective. There are still a few negative reviews but it didn't stop me from still wanting to try it out. This is made from baking powder, hence the name and it claims to be really good against blackheads and whiteheads as well as facial cleansing.


Foodholic Acerola Brightening Foam Cleansing Facial Wash

Foodholic is a good and affordable brand. I've tried their Snail Hand Cream which is really good. People on Facebook were raving about how this lightened their complexion, and trust me, if it will lighten my skin complexion again then count me in! It took a while to fully decide about buying this as I still have a lot of facial foam and cleansers on standby but I'm quite glad I finally did.


Foodholic Jeju Healing Toner in Canola Flower

Now same group of people raving about the Acerola Face Wash were also commenting about this also helped out with their breakouts and even acne scars! This facial toner and the acerola facial wash were the things they were using and it did wonders to their skin. I am still yet to prove it, but here's to hoping...


Care:Nel Lip Sleeping Mask

I know the packaging looks familiar people are even calling it a dupe for that famous brand Laneige! It comes in the pink variant which is the original one and then a lime version came up which prompted me to get just one to test it out. I am still on the lookout for something that would maybe get rid of the dark spots on my lips but for now I'll aim on having smooth and supple lips haha.


Batch Code and Expiration Date

And thats it! I am so excited to try them out so that I can also post reviews about the items mentioned. Oh, did I mentioned I got them for a very cheap price? Yes, and all authentic too!
