[Valentine’s Day Special] Say It With Bears

Like most ladies, I have a soft spot for flowers but not when they start to wither and get all ugly and stinky. Won’t it be nice if Valentine’s day bouquets could last forever? That way, memories could be preserved for a long time.

These are not your typical Valentine’s day roses. Sure, real flowers are nice but let’s face it… they only look good for a short while before they start dying. I remember spotting flies circling my fresh flowers bouquet and the nasty stench it started to emit when it was nearing its expiry date. Trust me, it was definitely not a pretty picture.

You could avoid such an undesirable scenario by getting your sweetheart something special from Love U Beary Much. Their foam roses are obviously artificial but do not look the part. And best of all, they won’t wither or stink up the place. Continue reading

My Facial Experience At Bella Skin Care

With more than 2 decades of experience in the beauty business, Bella Skin Care is the place to go for professional skin care services.

Regular facials not only stimulates circulation and removes dead skin to reveal a healthier, hydrated and radiant complexion. It also provides physiological and psychological benefits.

I must admit that I’ve not been faithfully having my facials done due to the lack of time ever since I had a baby. Therefore, it’s no surprise that my skin was lackluster and in bad shape. A skin consultation revealed that my skin was dehydrated in most areas, badly clogged and dull.

The Pure Blossom Treatment; one of the treatments being offered at Bella Skin Care was recommended for my skin type. Designed to boost skin repair and rejuvenation, the Pure Blossom Treatment aims to heal and improve elasticity. Armed with antioxidants such as Vitamin C, CoEnzyme Q10 & Glycolic Acid, it helps the skin protect against sun damage while encouraging skin exfoliation for a renewed complexion.

After changing into the treatment gown and settling down in my assigned therapy room. My face was once again given yet another close-up examination. My beauty therapist mentioned that my skin was dry and sensitive, especially in the areas around my nose, upper lips and the forehead. She also noted that my chin area was showing signs of clogged pores. I was advised to regularly exfoliate my skin to reduce and prevent congested pores.

The treatment begin with the therapist getting me to inhale some aromatherapy essential oil to relax. Next, I was treated to a pampering welcome head and shoulder massage. This was followed by the removal of my makeup, a cleanse and exfoliation scrub. At the same time, a rose scented facial mist was used to soothe and calm skin. Benefits of mist include leaving skin radiant and hydrated.

I dread the extraction the most of all in facials because they tend to hurt so much, in fact, causing me to tear a lot too. However, my beauty therapist’s skillful hands were so nimble and gentle. And guess what? No tears at all too. I suppose that the facial steam did also play a part in opening up my pores so that the extraction was a breeze. My brows which have not been trimmed for ages were also tidied up.

Once all the gunk and blackheads were removed, the beauty therapist then applied soothing lotion to calm my skin. All these while, I was still being treated to the facial steam with rose water to soothe my skin.

Then, the therapist applied the Pure Blossom serum containing CoEnzyme Q10 for me. Having the facial mist on also helped opened my pores to fully absorb the serum’s essence. CoEnzyme Q10 has potent antioxidant benefits, it boosts skin cell renewal, stimulates collagen growth while protecting against sun damage. Seriously, I could go on and on about its wonderful benefits but you get the idea.

As I allowed my skin to absorb the goodness of the Pure Blossom serum, I was given a  hand paraffin wax. Now this is why I enjoy having facials at Bella Skin Care, because it’s almost like a head to toe pampering session. You get a head and shoulder massage, hand paraffin wax, hand massage and your brows tidied up too.

Finally, it was time for my favorite part of every facial; the mask. Here I am enjoying the Pure Blossom mask packed with wholesome goodness of antioxidants such as Vitamin C and Glycolic Acid.

I was left to rest for awhile with the mask on and I actually drifted off to sleep. Ahhhh.. pure bliss. Hence, I was almost disappointed when the beauty therapist returned to the room as I knew that my pampering facial session was coming to an end soon. But it was not before she indulged me in a relaxing hand massage after removing the paraffin wax. The mask was cleansed off and sunscreen applied to my skin. Next, I was treated to yet another massage known as the goodbye massage which targeted the shoulder and back.

What a lovely experience I had at Bella Skin Care. Much to my surprise and delight, I left the place without any embarrassing post-extraction redness too. My skin also appeared brighter and clearer, thanks to the Vitamin C & Glycolic Acid.

[Review] Beauty Paparazzi sends me Innisfree Wine Jelly Sleeping Pack to try out

Beauty Paparazzi, houses Korean beauty products which are not only hugely popular in Korea but in Singapore too. And as we all know, most physical stores in town that sell such Korean brands are priced much higher. So you can save quite a bit when you spree online with Beauty Paparazzi. Featuring brands such as Etude House, The Skin Food to Laneige, your skin is in for a treat!

And unlike certain shady online stores or sprees that are offering dirt cheap prices because their products are imitations. This blogshop only sell Korean products which are 100% authentic! They are also able to offer such attractive prices due to the bulk volume purchase they make.

I got to sample one of the products they bring in and it’s a brand I’m new to. Innisfree is a natural brand that shares the benefits of nature from the pristine island of Jeju allowing for vibrant beauty and pursues an eco-friendly green life to preserve the balance of nature. I was real excited to try out this product.

Wine Jelly Sleeping Pack 80ml @ $22.50


So what is this?

A sleeping mask that is enriched with wine extracts from France wine which creates a smooth jelly texture which helps to removes dead skin cells and to provide hydrating moisture.
This is an interesting product and I think sleeping masks are heaven sent because these masks can be left overnight! No more falling asleep while masking and suddenly waking up to a dried up, wrinkled sheet mask. Opening up the jar, you get a faint whiff of what smells like a combination of berries and red wine. Lovely!
The texture of the product is smooth with a rich, creamy consistency. Application is a breeze and this does not feel greasy or clogging on your skin. In fact, your pillow cases are saved from any yucky stains!
How to Use?

After night skin regime, apply appropriate amount to face avoiding eyes and lip areas. Allow the testure to absorb and go to sleep. Wash off the following morning.

My verdict?

I think everyone who spends almost their entire life in an air-conditioned environment should get this. If you sleep in an air-conditioned room, you need to give your skin ample hydration. And this wine jelly sleeping pack does just that, by sealing all the nutrients from your night time skincare regime. On top of that, it also provides additional moisture for the skin too.

You can see the difference in your skin in the morning and trust me, you’ll love the effect.
