You would probably have heard of the latest Australian pink clay mask to hit our shores through social media, with so many users sharing their experience online. After viewing a few videos on Facebook, I was deeply intrigued and was looking forward to trying it out for myself. The best thing was that My Perfect Skin bundle had arrived just in time for my staycation.
The Perfect Skin bundle consists of the Porefining Face Mask with applicator brush and the Flash Perfection Exfoliating Treatment. So these were going to be my skincare buddies for my staycation. Continue reading →
My job requires me to move about regularly and that means that I am often at the mercy of the elements. Knowing Singapore’s weather, you can expect it to be sunny and scorching hot most of the time. Despite having bought tons of organic sunscreen, I still find myself forgetting to apply it most of the time. It is simply easier to just pop a pill and get on with business.
Heliocare PureWhite Radiance Max 240 is heaven sent because it not only helps to protect the skin from harmful UV rays, it also slows down skin ageing from free radical. This magical little purple pill also repairs and prevents DNA damage caused by the sun, prevents loss of moisture on the skin, promotes skin radiance and improves the appearance of hyper pigmentation while evening the overall skin tone on both face and body.
Remember the last time I had shared about my favourite serum from Loveisderma? Well, guess what? This time round I have managed to find a local online store that stocks not only products from Loveisderma but also a number of other cult beauty brands from Taiwan and Korea. So don’t say ‘Bo Jio‘ but do check out My Daily Skincare. The best thing is that they also offer international shipping so even you are located elsewhere other than Singapore, you can still get your beauty fix.
Presenting my beauty haul.

Anyong-haseyo 안녕하세요! Went down back to my trusty Apgujeong hair salon for a colour change since the roots were showing. My senior K stylist, Sean Kim, recommended copper and I decided to go ahead with it.
He also tonged my hair to create these Korean curls which he unfortunately did not know what they call it in English and I have no idea how to type out what they call it in Korean lol so let’s just stick to Korean perm or Korean curls.
Got my nails done at JC Beauty recently and here they are!
The roses and all the other nail art designs were hand-painted by Joyce herself. I had no specific design I had in mind so I let Joyce just do up something for me. She does mostly classy designs as evident in the ones she did for me.
LUSH fans rejoice because there’s a new outlet at Vivocity B1-04. Other than their usual array of natural, handmade and organic products, be sure to check out their brand new fragrances. We are really excited because Singapore is the first in Asia to launch the gorilla perfumes.
After trying out every single fragrance, I eventually decided on Amelie Mae & Sun. Amelie Mae has a saccharine sweet fruity and candy-like scent while Sun is refreshing with hints of a citrus note.
Leekaja Hair Salon was established by Madame Leekaja back in 1972 in South Korea and was the first franchised hair dressing brand. Since then, LKJ Hair Salon has been the most stylish and prestigious hair salon brand in Korea and have branched out overseas with 130 shops in Korea, 15 in USA, 33 in China and most recently launched the first LKJ hair salon in Australia.
Located conveniently in the heart of Orchard at Mandarin Gallery, #03-13, one would not be able to miss Leekaja because of its posh and eye-catching decor. A one-stop beauty salon specialising in Korean trends, you can find hair, nail, eyelash, semi-permanent makeup such as eyebrow embroidery and eyeliner embroidery and even barber services.
Been quite busy with personal projects of late so I have not been really blogging. And I really need to get back on track with that job hunting, I can feel myself sinking into my comfort zone. I need to get creative, go out and do my thing or simply do something besides shopping :X
So let’s just do a quick summary on what I have been up to. First of, I had Brazilian Gold Keratin treatment done. I had a trim but this hairstylist noob ruined my hair, she practically thinned my hair by 50%, leaving it with too many layers and super frizzy. So I had to tame it but I could not see myself splurging $300 on a hair treatment. Which is why a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do and that was to head down to Fave (old Groupon) to grab a coupon for Keratin treatment. My girlfriend actually shared this with me and I decided to give it a try. I know there are a couple of Keratin treatments on Fave, the one which I had selected was Luxe X M at Katong 112.
It is summer and time for pool parties and water sports fun but before you even head outdoors. Make sure that you have the right sunscreen for your skin. Did you know that even if you are just be staying indoors at work or in the shopping malls. You should also remember to put on your sunscreen diligently as even though UVB is blocked by the glass windows but UVA can still reach you through the indoor lighting.
So what should we look out while shopping for a suitable sunscreen?
Had my first IPL experience over at Japan IPL after I bought a coupon off Fave, where they had 100 shots for just S$65 (I paid S$50 after using a promo code). So Japan IPL has several branches islandwide and the great thing about them is that you do not need to book an appointment. Just head down to your desired branch and get your IPL done.
The areas which I decided to try out IPL on were my upper lips and underarms. I had gone down with the intention of just utilising the shots for my upper lips because I was sick of having a shadow above my lips. But I was told that I had to utilise a minimum of 20 shots for the first round as they were giving these 20 shots for free to new customers. Upper lips requires just 10 shots so I decided to just get my underarms done too.
