Laurier’s Ultra Gentle Pads

As a girl, I dread my period every month. Not only because I hate the cramps, the mood swings, the loss in appetite, back aches, bloating and more; wearing a pad isn’t always the most comfortable.

Not until I discovered Laurier’s Ultra Gentle pads! These pads are dermatologically tested (basically means that a dermatologist was in charge of the product testings) for superior comfort.


Here are some key features of the product:

o Minimal Friction: The unique wavy surface reduces skin contact, minimizing friction by 30%*, making it gentler than ordinary cotton napkins. Not that I want to call out other brands here, but some really cause itching and discomfort. Laurier’s Ultra Gentle pads are definitely more comfortable and gentler on the skin compared to regular cotton sanitary napkins.

o Extra Breathable: With the improved wavy surface,  airflow increases by +50%^, thus relieving stuffiness, moisture and itchiness.

o Quick Lock & Dry: Their super absorbent layer locks in fluids quickly, allowing for a drier and sticky free surface.

o Advanced Technology: Developed with Japanese advanced skin science technology, premium quality is assured! *Compared to previous Laurier Ultra Gentle products , ^Compared to other Kao products


Day: Ultra Slim Light Flow 18s 20.5cm ($5.20), Ultra Slim Day 16s 22.5cm ($5.40) & Ultra Slim Heavy Day 15s 25cm ($5.60)


Night: Slim Night 10s 30cm ($4.80), Slim Heavy Night 9s 34cm ($5.35) & Slim Extra Heavy Night 7s 40cm ($4.95)

I always use the super long ones to make sure that there’s zero leakage!


With Laurier’s Ultra Gentle Pads, I feel comfortable and assured to go about my daily life with no worries! Feel liberated as you can continue to exercise, go for a cuppa or do some shopping!

Laurier’s Ultra Gentle pads are available at all leading pharmacies, supermarkets and hypermarkets.

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

sunscreen 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

Screen Shot 2018-02-13 at 11.56.34 PM

Step 1: Shake Well
Step 2: Spray 20cm away from face
Step 3: Spray 4 times peruse
Step 4: Leave to dry, no need to spread!

The product retails at $19.90 for 50ml
o Available exclusively at Watsons from 1 March 2018
o Available island wide from 1 April 2018 at major Watsons, and Guardian stores, Unity, Robinsons, Welcia-BHG, Lazada Official Store and Zalora Official Store.

I was honoured to be a part of the grand opening of Orient Palace, Singapore’s First and Largest Dining, Wellness and Entertainment Hub; spanning a total of 26,000 Square Feet! Gracing the event was veteran Taiwanese host Jacky Wu (吴宗宪) and celebrities Li Nanxing (李南星), Constance Song (宋怡霏) and Candy Chen (陈斯亚)​.

How breast augmentation increased my confidence – My breast augmentation journey part 2 (Surgeon Dr Martin Huang)

Thank you everyone for your kind words and support after I released the video interview and previous blogpost talking about my breast augmentation surgery!
I want you guys to know that your support means a lot to me and that I’m open to any questions that you guys might have with regards to the procedure.
Through my sharing, I hope that readers who are interested to explore the possibility of breast augmentation for themselves have a better understanding of the procedure.

TBH, there are a lot of myths out there.
People hearsay from their friend, who heard someone else who did it, who read something online, who became aware of a case of a botched job.

There is a risk involved in every surgery of course, and it is no different for breast augmentation surgeries.
It is therefore very important to go to trusted and reputable doctors!
Make sure your doctor answers all your queries and walks you through the procedure.
Even better if he/she provides explanations on why they choose to do method A or method B, or prefer to use material X over material Y.

Just to debunk some myths:

1. You cannot breastfeed after breast augmentation
– This is definitely not true. Breast-feeding is still possible, provided your doctor doesn’t cut your milk ducts. My doctor chose a under-boob incision, which makes breast feeding still possible. This procedure also prevents sensitivity loss. The scars are also hidden at the bottom of the boob.

2. You need to continuously massage the breast after the surgery.
– This is no longer true, due to advancements in technologies and improvements to the materials used.

3. You have to abstain from certain food after the surgery
– Not true, I could eat whatever I want after the op

4. You have to replace the implant over time.
– Not true. Implants need not be removed unless in the rare occasion where your chest is subjected to strong, targeted impact which causes the implant to burst.

Let me know if there are any more concerns or myths you’d like me to debunk!

My surgery was performed by Dr Martin Huang at MH Plastic Surgery, located at Paragon Medical Centre.
​As for questions regarding cost, know that it is different for everyone and the prices will be adjusted based on the needs of the individual.

Going back to how breast augmentation has increased my confidence.

The best part about having a fuller chest is really the simple joy of being able to fill up the top part of my blouses and dresses.
This was something that I struggled with before going through breast augmentation.
The top part of my clothes always limped and sagged in a ugly manner, something that I couldn’t fix unless I stuffed padding in my bra (which sometimes shifts out of place and makes me uncomfortable or paiseh cause other people can see them)

Now, I can wear whatever I want; looking good and feeling great about myself!
​I’m not saying that your self-esteem has to be fully built upon the way you look; but when you love the way you look, it is definitely a boost.

Some people asked, why you don’t want to do bigger?
I did try the larger implants, but I didn’t think they were suitable.
(Do note that for the first few weeks, there will be a bit of swelling. But once this goes away, you will be the size you chose.)
Choose the size that suits you and achieves the look that you want.

Remember that this is a life-time commitment.
It is something that you have to live with for the rest of your life, so consider carefully before making your decision.
Do it for yourself and not for anyone else.
It may not change your life, but it will help you feel better about yourself.
Make sure you also have realistic expectations of the results of the surgery.

If you want to find out more about the procedure, head over to this link:

Now, go forth and be beautiful (;

I chose to determine my fate – My breast augmentation journey Part 1

It wasn’t easy to make the choice.
People called me crazy.
“Huh, you not scared meh?”
“What if the doctor screws up? Y’know I heard someone whose nipple turned out slanted, another girl’s boobs burst …..”
To say I didn’t have fear in my heart or nerves in my veins would be lying.However, ever since I was a teen, I’ve always thought about doing breast augmentation aka boob jobs.Watching Bong Qiu Qiu’s boob job video further inspired me.
She spoke honestly, about how she felt being flat, how it affected her confidence, how we just didn’t look as good in clothes, how she hated going to the beach and I cried.
Because I knew that deep down, I felt the same.

Years on, her video is still etched in my memory.
And people continued to make jokes about how flat I was.
I chose to pretend like it didn’t hurt me and laughed along.
After all, I could only accept my fate right?
As I grew up, more ladies around me chose to determine their fate.
I started to hear more stories of ladies going for surgery to enhance their bodies.
Some turned out well, some turned out bad.
But these statistics never stopped anyone anyway.
It was worth a shot.
So I started googling and researching about breast augmentation.
That’s when I chanced upon MH Plastic Surgery.
I was inclined towards this clinic because I’ve heard of Dr Martin Huang’s good name and his many successful cases.
His website had clear, detailed explanations of the procedure as well, which made me feel a greater sense of relief.To be honest, I sat on it for a week but eventually decided to set up a doctor’s consultation with MH Plastic Surgery.
*fingers crossed*The clinic was minimalistic and very clean, located on the top floor of Paragon Medical.
I was greeted my friendly staff and nurses who brought me in to meet Doctor.
He spent more than an hour, understanding my needs and concerns as well as debunked popular myths about breast augmentation.
Doctor also explained why he chose to use the product he uses in his clinic over other types of implant, his choice of procedure and so on.
These went a long way to make me feel more assured and safe in his hands.

Eventually we got to the part where I got to try on different sized implants to pick how I wanted the results to look!
I kinda felt like a barbie doll, but also a dream come true.
After the session, the doctor told me to go back and consider if I really wanted to continue with the procedure.
At no point of the consultation was he pushy or unprofessional.

I took less than a week to decide.
My answer was, YES, I want this for me and my body.
So I got a date and waited for the day to arrive.

Stay tuned as I share more about the surgery and recovery process in my next post ☺

Before trying the Mediplus Gel, I’ve never been exposed to All-in-one skincare.
When I first heard the term, I wondered if such a wonderful product could exist.
“Wouldn’t it cause many skincare lines to go out of business?”
I had to try it out for myself and to test for myself what Mediplus had to offer to my skin.

The Story behind Mediplus

The CEO of Mediplus suffered from eczema since her childhood days. Thus, she started working as a skin counsellor in search for a solution to her skin problem. After her experience with over 1000 patients, she finally realized that exposing the skin to aggressive rubbing/touching was the cause of many skin troubles. Therefore, she invented an All-in-one skin care which reduces unnecessary touching & rubbing; with the aim to invent a cosmetic that is suitable for sensitive skin without any alcohol, parabens, artificial colouring & flavour.

Jointly developed with a pharmaceutical company, Mediplus has also been adopted in more than 200 cosmetic surgeries.

​Mediplus has achieved much success, with a sales record of more than 6 million bottles sold in Japan! The company then expanded into Taiwan, with an extremely high satisfaction rate of 98%. This has been duly recognized, as Mediplus was awarded the Monde Selection Gold Prize for 3 consecutive years.

So, what exactly makes Mediplus so wonderful?
Here’s why.

Product Features
· Formulated with 66 beauty ingredients such as Izumo Tamatsukuri Spring Water, which is renowned for beautiful skin
· Radiation tested, SGS tested
· Free from preservatives, alcohols, fragrances, mineral oils etc; making Mediplus-Gel completely suitable for sensitive skin
· All-in-one moisturising skincare to attain beautiful hydrated radiant skin.
· Rejuvenated skin after 1 month of use!

Mediplus has 66 beauty ingredients

Key ingredients are as follows:
◇Super Collagen
⇒ provides both younger-looking and elastic skin
◇Marine Placenta
⇒ Quick and effective whitening effect
◇ Hyaluronic acid
⇒ Improve wrinkles and provides lifting effect
◇ Vitamin C
⇒ Removes dullness, lightens & radiates skin
◇ Hot Spring Water
⇒ Effective for improving rough skin and acne
◇ Highly Concentrated ceramide
⇒ Hydrates & retains moisture level.

With these, you’d notice your skin being deeply moisturized and brightened. Mediplus-Gel is suitable for sensitive, dry skin; with whitening and anti-ageing effects. Blemishes, wrinkles, sagging would also be improved!

How To Use
· Please apply 2 full pumps in the morning and 3 full pumps in the evening from the face to neckline
· After washing your face, spread the gel over your palms and apply gently.· As the gel contains plenty of moisturising ingredients, it may feel sticky after application. Do be patient as the stickiness is a layer that protects your skin from the external environment (i.e. Dirt, Dust etc.) & keeps your skin moisturised.

For details, refer to the following videos:


I really love this gel because I can really testify for its moisturizing effects. I hate when moisturizing products leave a thick gooey after-feeling, especially in our tropical weather but Mediplus-gel is quickly absorbed into your skin and boosts your moisture levels by at least 10 – 20%!

Dewy Shine Collagen Stimulation Fillers 少女针 by Kowayo Aesthetics

Youth is within reach.
No, I’m not talking about miracles and magic fountains of youth nor elixirs.I’m talking about the highly raved treatment, the Dewy Shine Collagen Stimulation Treatment by Kowayo Aesthetics!
Without going under the knife, this non-invasive treatment helps to stimulate natural collagen, helping you look youthful and radiant.We hear collagen being tossed about these days, but what is it exactly?
Collagen is basically the protein that is responsible for maintaining structure and firmness of your skin.
When we age, our collagen content diminishes and causes our skin to sag and lose its suppleness.Combined with unhealthy lifestyles, including lack of sleep, stress, smoking and too much time spent on the computer, the loss of collagen is accelerated.
This is especially obvious around the eye area, making one look tired and older.

Even though I can’t say that I’m an aged woman, my dark eye circle problem is rather obvious.
Hence, on 26th May 2017, I decided to try the Dewy Shine Ellanse treatment which promised to not only add volume and plump up sunken areas of the face due to loss of collagen and elasticity; but also stimulate the production of my own collagen for a natural looking lift.

Ellanse is an award-winning next-generation filler, which consists of polycaprolactone (PCL) and a carrier gel. PCL has been safely used in medical devices for many years and is responsible for the collagen production.

​It can be used to “lift” cheeks, enhance the forehead, temples, laughlines and eye areas to create a more youthful apperance. PCL is also FDA-approved for its safety and is eventually expelled completely from the body.

There are four different versions of Ellanse (S, M, L, E) based on the longevity of one, two, three and four years respectively.

Ellanse – E, which can last up to 4 years, is currently the most durable filler in the market; making it cost effective and reducing the number of injections required.

For most patients, the results of Ellanse are visible after 1 treatment and will progressively improve. The Ellanse collagen stimulation treatment benefits skin conditions such as sagging cheeks, enlarged pores and acne scarring, although individual results may vary.

To be honest, I was pretty scared hence my face.
And it was a bit more painful than the nose filler, but nothing unbearable I promise.

I tried really hard to smile but my face felt really numb hahahahhaha

Burning questions you want to ask

1. How long does a treatment take?
A treatment takes approximately 30 minutes allowing you to go straight back
to your normal daily life.
I went for the treatment during my lunch break, and was able to head back to work straight after!2. How long will the results last?
You will get natural, smooth and immediate results, that last from 1 to 4 years
depending on which ELLANSETM option your physician recommends to you.
The correction is maintained over the total duration of the option chosen; enabling
you to avoid multiple sessions.3. How many sessions are generally needed?
With ELLANSE, only one session is needed to obtain immediate results and
long-lasting correction, making ELLANSE a cost effective treatment; excellent value for money.

4. What should I do after the treatment?
It is recommended to avoid hot bathing (eg. saunas) and vigorous exercise for 24 hours as well as over-exposure to the sun and UV light for 1 week after treatment.

5. Are there any side effects?
As with any injection, there may be side effects such as localised redness,
swelling and bruising.

Personally, I experienced some bruising around my eye area.
However, Dr Wong did reassure me that this was normal and that the bruising will go away pretty soon.
True enough, it subsided over the next few days.

“Dr wong will see you now.”
