Have sensitive skin and been avoiding facials for fear of worsening your skin condition? Or have you had your sensitive skin’s condition made worse during a facial because the beauty salon had no idea on how to handle your delicate skin. Well, fret not because there’s a place that you must check out. Here’s presenting Pure Tincture Organic Beauty!
Conveniently located at the basement of the Adelphi building, Pure Tincture is a cosy little beauty spa that provides pampering organic facials. They also stock a wide variety of facial spa-grade skincare products from organic, vegan and animal cruelty-free beauty brands.
I am a fuss-free person when it comes to skincare where the lesser steps involved, the better. Honestly, I can’t imagine having to go through a skincare routine that would take up more than 10 minutes of my time. So when I was approached by EstheClinic Paris, a French group of aesthetic and anti-ageing clinics, to try out their cosmeceuticals range. I got really intrigued and excited about this collaboration. So for the past few weeks, I have been trying out their leading product, Le coffret CosmeLED and now I would like to share about it with you, dear readers!
According to EstheClinic Paris, all the French medical anti-ageing expertise has been condensed into this unique anti-ageing kit that leaves skin looking radiant, firmer and younger. Wow! Upon learning about that, I couldn’t wait to try it out for myself. Le Coffret CosmeLED is also inspired by aesthetic medicine and includes innovative cosmeceuticals and micro-needle device that acts in synergy to reverse the signs of aging.
The three products you would find in this Le coffret ( also known as small box in French) are:
The neck is one of the most neglected areas of the skin when it comes to skincare pampering and yet it also one of the areas of the body that gives away your age. I’ve just celebrated my birthday and knowing that I’m now another step towards the big 40 is making me all jittery. As we age, our collagen production slows down and as a result, the monsters of aging such as wrinkles, sagging and lines start to show on our neck and décolletage.
That is a photo of my neck and décolletage, I guess the more obvious lines are caused from constantly looking down at my gadgets (Mobile, iPad & Laptop etc). And since I can’t turn back the hands of time, the least I could do is to take better care of my neck. So I tried out the NeoStrata Triple Firming Neck Cream.
I was invited to try out the AlmaLase Laser Face Treatment at LUSH Aesthetics which is conveniently located in the heart of Orchard at Tanglin Shopping Centre. This treatment is one of the latest technology in Laser Face Rejuvenation from Korea. Continue reading
On Saturday night, I was at 1-Altitude to attend The Face Shop’s Raspberry Roots 1st Million Special Anniversary, along with June.
The Raspberry Roots series is a hot favorite among TFS fans and I have heard so much raves about it, especially the sleeping mask. Did you know that the Raspberry fruit is bursting with antioxidants, thus, it is full of skincare benefits and anti-aging properties.
Ever since a dermatologist mentioned that I had excellent skin, it made me more determined to take good care of it. So I thought it was pretty timely when I was introduced to Ziaja skincare products, a brand that’s new to Singapore. I was given their moisturizer and eye cream to try out. The are the products which I am going to review today are from their Marine Algae range: Continue reading
Heliocare welcomes a new oral whitening supplement capsule, Heliocare PureWhite Radiance. Discovered through the combination of sophisticated proprietary technology FernblockTM + White Tech Complex, Heliocare PureWhite Radiance brightens up your complexion and fights early anti-aging signs, achieving youthful, radiant skin.
Co-developed by researchers at Harvard University, Heliocare features the patented Fernblock technology. Fernblock is derived from a Central American fern that developed unique photoprotective abilities in its evolution form an aquatic environment to a land-based plant. It’s the main active ingredient in HELIOCARE products and covered by US Patent 56141679 as an anti-oxidant and photo protector for oral and topical use.
This potent ingredient is not available in dietary sources. Through the combination of the Fernblock + White Tech complex, this natural plant extract helps protect skin from the harmful effects of UVA & UVB radiation. Its effectiveness has been clinically demonstrated in both topical and oral sun protection products.
I understand how harmful and damaging the sun’s rays can be, especially for someone like me who’s already actively aging. I used to spend a lot of time soaking up the rays while on island getaways, guess that explains my tanned complexion. So I’m really excited to receive a jar to try out and experience it for myself.
It looks really special because of it’s unique purple color.
Check out the new levels of protection offered by the Pure White Radiance other than sun protection :
The global antioxidant effect was quantified chemically and previously confirmed with biological tests, showing significant results when compared to vitamin C and beta-carotene.
Administered orally or topically, it increases tolerance to sunburn. In studies conducted in conjunction with the Dermatology Department at Harvard University (Boston, MA, U.S.), it was found that oral intake prior to exposure to the sun significantly increased the minimum amount of solar erythema, resulting in a protection factor of approximately 2.5.
DNA or genetic material protector
Oral use of EPL prior to exposure to ultraviolet radiation significantly reduced the number of cells with thymine dimmers. After use, a significant reduction in the number of sunburned cells was observed.
The oral administration of EPL modulates the production of buffers and cytokines proinflammatories by the skin cells after their exposure to ultraviolet radiation. EPL has also shown protective capabilities in Langerhans cells, maintaining their numbers and morphology.
This benefit has been experimentally confirmed in a murine model for aging skin, showing a reduction of skin elastosis compared to general elastosis. It is a naturally-derived organic extract.
Above extract are from Heliocare’s fact sheet. Ok, can’t wait to try it out and blog a review. Do watch out for it 😉
I received something interesting to try out recently. It’s anti-aging lip balm; presenting the Blistex Deep Renewal Lip Protectant!
This is the latest addition to my makeup pouch. We’ve heard of creams and even pills when it comes to anti-aging. But this is the first time I’ve come across an anti-aging lip balm. Especially since we tend to neglect our lips so often in our quest to look youthful. But if you have got sun-damaged, discolored and wrinkly lips, how good can you look?
It contains –
Coenzyme Q-10 – the gold standard for moisturization and overall revitalization
Hyaluronic Filling Spheres – help give lips a fuller appearence
Vitamin – Collagen Anti-oxidant Complex – promotes lasting lip health
Light-refractors – contribute to improving lips’ luster and youthfulness
Sun Protection – SPF 15 helps protect against sun damage that can accelerate the aging process
Upon application, it moistens your lips and diminishes the appearence of fine lines and wrinkles. Lips look moisturized and radiance. After 24hours of usage, it would reduce the level of damaging free radicals.Within 4 weeks of usage, you would be able to notice a reduction in the number and depth of fine lines and wrinkles. Awesome, right?
