A day as a HDB Taitai Wannabe

Today was a great, well-spent day where I got to run my errands and best of all, didn’t have to go to work. (OK, so I took leave). Anyway,Mocha had to go to the groomers and so did his mummy.

And where else would I head to but Salon De Choix, conveniently located at Winsland House 1. If you are driving, then you can park at the Orchard Central car park which offers one of the cheapest parking fees in town.

Some camhoring before heading to the salon… 

I just had my hair colored a month back and the roots ain’t really showing. So I settled for a head massage & hair treatment today. The head massage included a treatment for sensitive scalp. All these chemical treatments like dyeing my hair have left my scalp rather red, angry-looking and ultra sensitive, so it was time to give it some good old loving. While the hair treatment nourished my tresses so that they were smooth and healthy-looking again.

The massage was so pampering, I nearly dozed off. After the massage from the hair oil with rose extract, I had my hair washed. And the massage that followed during the hair wash was so relaxing, I think I did really fall asleep for awhile.

The shampoo used (pictured above) was also specially suited for sensitive scalp. After the wash, I had a solution sprayed onto my scalp to soothe it. This was followed by the hair treatment with the Mythic Oil (as shown above).  Then followed by a 2nd hair wash to rinse off.

Finishing up, I had my hair styled into lovely curls, complete with the sweet-smelling Kerastase Elixir Ultime serum.

Oooh I’m so loving my temp curls 😛 It looks good even in a side pony tail.

[Giveaway] L’oreal White Perfect Laser, even better than IPL?

Recently, I attended a blogger event with June by L’oreal where they made a bold claim; that their latest L’oreal White Perfect Laser whitening skincare range had proven clinical results which resemble the aftermath of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL).

Don’t mind my sickly, pasty white face as I was down was a bad flu and nearly forgotten all about this event till I got the reminder from L’oreal.

Check out the stars of the night:

Left to right; White Perfect Laser Anti-Spot Brightening Essence (S$39.90) and the All-Round Whitening Cream SPF19/PA+++ (S$32.90)

We all know that IPL as a popular though pricey method to whiten the skin. Others go for vitamin C drips which are also not very friendly on the pocket, costing a few hundreds a go. With the L’oreal White Perfect Laser, fairer and brighter skin seems achievable in a more affordable manner.

Details on how to WIN a L’oreal Youth Code Boosting Essence (S$39.90) & UV Perfect sunscreen SPF 30 PA+++ (S$17.90) under the cut…

[REVIEW] L’oreal Base Magique Transforming Smoothing Primer

I had gotten this from a L’oreal bloggers event previously.
I’ve tried it and I love it but just did not have the time to blog about it back then.
A make-up base or primer helps makeup stay on longer and also conceals blemishes and flaws.
What is interesting about the L’oreal Base Magique is its unique velvet texture.
It is kinda starchy to touch and reminds me of mashed potato. Crazy, I know.
This may seem like a really tiny tub but a little goes a long way with this makeup primer.
It is recommended that you take alittle of the product and rub it between your fingers to ease the spreading. Next, apply a thin layer evenly over your face, focusing on areas with fine lines and visible pores.
This makeup primer hides flaws and also creates a smooth, natural-looking canvas that is perfect for makeup.
Makeup stays on for hours and it does a pretty good job with oil control.
