ASTALIFT Workshop + Products Review


Did you know that ASTALIFT is Fujifilm’s beauty line?? That’s probably why they are so particular about making you look beautiful and picture-perfect!

I’ve always heard great things about ASTALIFT’s products and how the brand is powered by technology and research but I never had the chance to try out their products. Thanks to Sample Store, I managed to attend ASTALIFT’s workshop last week at Wisma Atria.

During the 1 hour session, the consultant shared with us a whole bunch of interesting information about ASTALIFT’s innovative products and how they can help us achieve great skin. We also got to try some of their amazing products!


Some of the key products that we looked at include:


In-Focus Cellactive Serum ($222)

Other than the pretty packaging, the In-Focus Cellactive Serum contains Ion Sensing Technology which allows immediate penetration as it glides on the skin.

Through Stem Cell Rejuvenation, the product delays ageing and restores the youthful look of your skin. You’d be able to combat the presence of wrinkles and the loss of elasticity while at the same time improve your skin tone to look radiant. Say hello to soft, supple skin!

How does this work?? Well, your stem cells will be protected from the stresses of the environment as the serum contains Nano-Astaxanthin CP+. Nano-Cellactive also works to activate your stem cells to get them to work.

This serum also smells wonderful, with a scent mix of Bergamot, Rose, Jasmine & Sandalwood.

Jelly Aquarysta ($148.00)

The Jelly Aquarysta was really fun to use! A unique moisturizer that comes in the form of a jelly, it spreads out smoothly on the skin in a watery texture and penetrates into the skin. Containing “human-type nano acyl ceramide”, the moisturizing ingredient in the product is stably dispersed at the world’s smallest 20nm-level, ensuring a moisturizing function that moisturizes every corner of your skin!

Apply this immediately after washing your face.

As the product is a nano-cosmetic, please do not rub in the product! Just gently spread it over your face and press in the product. Rubbing will actually destroy ALL the moisturizing properties of this special jelly.

The jelly surface inside the container will repair itself in 1-2 minutes after use and returns automatically to its flat and smooth form.

Scented with the sweet and noble damask rose.


Night Charge Cream (**NEW, $118)

This new product stimulates Melatonin(sleep hormone) during sleep to encourage collagen regeneration with addition of Salvia Officinalis (Sage) Leaf Extract, making it ideal for overnight use as a sleeping mask for weekly pampering treats for tired skin or as a regular intensive night care for face and neck.

Indulge your skin in the duo action of super anti-oxidants Nano Astaxanthin and Nano Lycopene as they work to provide optimal protection of cells against oxidative stresses from UV and free radicals. There’s also increased anti-oxidant power by 3.7X with the addition of Oenothera Biennis (Evening Primrose) Seed Extract!

The cream contains 3 types of functional collagen work synergistically to strengthen skin’s protective function, replenish collagen loss and promote new collagen growth.

Finally, intensive skin restoration of radiance, suppleness and firmness during sleep through its specially formulated mask texture is delivered but without the dreadful mess of drippy face masks.

Use this together with the eye cream that I’m about to introduce below!

Renewal Eye Cream ($108)

Before I leave the house, I always ensure that I apply sunscreen. But did you know that the chemicals in sunscreen are not suitable for application around the eye area?

It’s also very rare to find eye cream that contains SPF, which totally explains why my eye area is always so much darker than the rest of my skin!

ASTALIFT’s eye cream contains Astaxanthin to offer UV protection without the awful sunscreem chemicals! Acting as a luxurious eye moisturizer, the cream also provides nightly care for the eye area to combat wrinkles, dark circles and eye bags without any greasy after-feel.

  • Duo action of super anti-oxidants Nano Astaxanthin and Nano Lycopene provide optimal protection of cells against oxidative stresses from UV and free radicals
  • Increased anti-oxidant power by 3.7X with the addition of Oenothera Biennis (Evening Primrose) Seed Extractt
  • 3 types of functional collagen work synergistically to strengthen skin’s protective function, replenish collagen loss and promote new collagen growth
  • Stimulates Melatonin (sleep hormone) to encourage collagen regeneration with addition of Salvia Officinalis (Sage) Leaf Extract
  • Lamellar Cover Veil feature enhanced with jojoba oil, dill and nasturtium extracts strengthens its anti-wrinkle efficacy and moisture-locking capabilities but without the tacky feel.

ASTALIFT White Collagen Drink ($60 for 10 bottles)


Seriously the most delicious collagen drink I’ve ever tasted!

This Collagen drinks gives you a natural protection against harmful UV rays! Containing 10,000 mg of Collagen, this drink has the perfect balance of taste and benefits to your skin.

Although most collagen drinks boast of the concentration of collagen that it contains, look out also for the purity of the collagen! Pure collagen would ensure better taste, smell and absorption.


Perfect UV Clear Solution – Demo

demo 2

As you can see, the results are amazing!

The left side of the face (that was covered by the product) is totally protected from the UV rays!

Was really impressed that the solution provides the maximum sun protection of SPF 50+ PA++++ and protects your skin from both UV B (that causes dark skin) and UV A (that causes ageing)

The cream can also be applied over makeup and gives you a natural looking glow.


Are you not already blown away?

Bioderma Hydrabio Eau De Soin SPF 30 PA +++ Review

bio 2

Facial mists have been around for a while now, and I personally love them. I carry one everywhere I go because whenever Singapore’s weather gets unbearable and my skin feels itchy and icky, I freshen up with a spray of facial mist!

Guys always think I’m crazy for spending money to buy these vapourized spring water mists but I’m telling you, there’s a reason why we girls love these mists!!

Bioderma just launched a brand new mist that’s definitely gonna win you over. With their innovative technology, they managed to create a 2-in-1 hydrating mist which combines sunscreen and an anti-oxidant formula. Not only is the mist deeply-hydrating, it’s also the only mist in the derma-cosmetics category that allows you to prevent your skin from ageing while on the go!

To be honest, I was kinda skeptical, so I pulled out my other mists for comparison. I won’t name the other brands but the Bioderma Hydrabio Eau De Soin is legitly the only mist product I have that contains SPF! Really amazed at how they managed to integrate sunscreen into water. Now, you no longer have to spend additional time applying sticky sunscreen on your face and worry about potentially leave white marks all over! Simply mist over (no spreading needed). The mist is of course, invisible on the skin and can be used over makeup. It also doesn’t stain your clothes!

This gets a bit technical here but Bioderma included Cellular BioprotectionTM, which protects the DNA of your cells, in order to prevent damage to your skin’s immune system and preserves antioxidant reserve. BASICALLY, your cells would not get destroyed by all the harmful things in our environment. Definitely a plus.

Even better than splashing water all over your face, the product is formulated with highly purified water and further enriched with hydrating molecules. Along with their AquageniumTM patent, your skin’s barrier is repaired to retain moisture and restore the water circulation of your skin.

You might be wondering how does this happen?? Well, the patent combines 2 ingredients, apple seed extract and Vitamin PP to stimulate the water circulation.


Be prepared to feel fresh and light, everytime you press down on that superfine spray pump! Being an environmentally friendly brand, Bioderma made sure that the air-free pump bottle was equipped with a gas-free atmospheric spray. This just makes me fall in love with the brand that bit more because they took care of the subtle things to do their part for the environment, so hurray Bioderma!

Here’s a bunch of other benefits, should you need even more reasons to fall in love with Bioderma’s Hydrabio Eau de Soin:
 Hypoallergenic
 Non-comedogenic
 Paraben-free
 Alcohol-free
 Fragrance-free
 High tolerance
 Does not stain

Overall, the Bioderma Hydrabio Eau de Soin SPF 30+++ is the perfect skincare product that is not only hydrating but also offers UV protection. Really good for saving dehyrated, dry skin and inch closer to youthful looking skin again!

Recommended Usage

If you’re convinced by now to grab a bottle, here’s how you should be using the product to maximize its benefits!

 Use as the last step of your morning skincare routine or use it to re-hydrate, set make-up and protect skin from harmful UV rays

 Can be sprayed on face and neck
