[Review] Le Coffret CosmeLED by EstheClinic Paris

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!

[Advertorial] Lovera Radiance C Intensive Brightening Serum (Goodness of Vit C in a vial)

Everyone’s obsessed with looking younger nowadays. Just take a look around and you’ll find that the markets are saturated with beauty supplements, aesthetic doctors to skincare products that contain collagen and other anti-oxidants.

Also with it being Chinese Lunar New Year, all the late nights staying up with family and friends to chill out or gamble (oops, I didn’t say that). It’s no surprise if you wake up tired, dull-looking skin.

I’m no exception and now that I am approaching 30s in another few more years, I’m determined to unravel the secrets behind looking young and beautiful even without a good night’s rest.

You won’t need to splurge thousands of dollars on botox or resort to invasive surgical means just to look good. We can find the answer to a glowing and youthful complexion in a tiny little bottle.

Curious about this product I’m gonna share with you? Here’s presenting the –

Lovera Radiance C Intensive Brightening Serum


This product is packed with loadful of vitamins and Ginseng Extract. Anti-oxidants such as Vitamin AVitamin B3 and Vitamin E have both protective and moisturizing properties. They help prevent damage to the skin from UVA & UVB rays. These vitamins also increase the resistance to collagen destruction, hence, promoting skin that is not only healthy and glowing but also supple and smooth to touch.

Ginseng (Extract) is an anti-aging and regenerative tonic. It has a remineralizing activity and offers anti-blotch properties.

And then we have the star ingredient – Vitamin C. Other than brightening the skin tone and lightening dark spots, it is also known to work against wrinkles and fine lines. Vitamin C plays a vital role in boosting your skin’s health and slowing down aging by preventing UV-induced free radical damage. Most importantly, it also stimulates collagen synthesis and this is essential for youthful-looking skin.


What sets apart the Lovera Radiance C Intensive Brightening Serum from other Vitamin C products would be its packaging.

As Vitamin C is oxidised easily and becomes inefficient upon oxidation, Lovera’s unique packaging ensures Vitamin C is delivered fresh and is effective for use.

And it’s real simple to assemble the serum for usage, you can follow the instructions shown on the right side of the box.


STEP 1: Pull the slot upwards in the direction as shown by the arrow on the cap, this is to remove the protective cap around the serum.

Remove the white cap and you will see the red tab below that secures the opening of the serum bottle.

STEP 2: Place the vial on a table to prevent spillage. Then firmly press the red tab down all the way, this is to help activate and release the high potency of the Vitamin C.

STEP 3: Shake the vial vigorously for 10-15 seconds.

STEP 4: Remove the red tab

STEP 5: Cover the vial with the nozzle securely.

IMPORTANT! Refrigerate your Radiance C when not in use, it can be kept refrigerated for up to 10 days. Do not expose the vial to sunlight or heat.


Apply a few drops on thoroughly-cleansed skin on face and neck. Massage into skin with finger tips. It is recommended that you use the Radiance C Intensive Brightening Serum every evening for maximum results.

The Lovera Radiance C Intensive Brightening Serum is light-weight in texture and the skin feels refreshed after application. As it’s so quickly absorbed, there is no clogging or heavy feeling on the skin.

You can’t even tell that I had applied the product as it’s readily absorbed by the skin and does not leave any uncomfortable layer of film.

After several applications, I feel that my skin appears brighter and glowy. I have some pimple scars which have also seem to faded off at a much quicker rate. This is a product that is worth checking out and you can purchase it from their online store – LOVERA SKIN CARE.

Do also LIKE LOVERA FACEBOOK PAGE  for exclusive updates and promotions from Lovera. Right now, the first 300 to LIKE the page would receive a 7-day sample of Lovera Radiance C Intensive Brightening Serum!

So what are you waiting for???

[Advertorial] The Body Shop’s Nutriganics™ Drops of Youth

You know, ever since I hit my mid twenties, anti-aging has always been on my mind. Who doesn’t want youthful, smooth and radiant-looking skin? Which explains why I’m ecstatic to learn about The Body Shop’s latest organic range – Nutriganics™  and how it can help me achieve great skin.

Nutriganics™ is a new range of organic products which have been certified by Ecocert that targets a common issue which most of us, women are concerned about – Anti-aging. You may check out the entire range over at their website here, most of the products are part of ELLE’s Beauty IT List 2011. They have the full works from the cleanser to the masks.

What really caught my eye in this range is the Nutriganics™ Drops of Youth; a pre-serum that makes use of the scientifically advanced plant stem cell technology which has been proven to enhance surface skin renewal for smoother, fresher and healthier looking skin.

It has extract of beech bud which contains a rich concentrate of minerals, enzymes, trace elements and vitamins. Another interesting fact is that it also contains Community Fair Trade organic babassu oil from the COPPAlJ co-operative in Maranhão, Brazil. The Body Shop is known for its fair trade programs which has helped to empower the women of this collective by turning the traditionally female occupation of shelling and pressing babassu nuts into a key source of income.

Nutriganics™ Drops of Youth contains 99% natural origin ingredients and 20% organic certified ingredients with no parabens or silicon. This is good news for those who have sensitive skin or a preference for organic products.

What’s truly unique about this product would be how easy it is to incorporate it into your current skincare regime. It does not matter what is your skin type or existing skincare regime, whether you are 26 or 66 years old. Just simply use it prior to your usual serum or moisturizer. This is one versatile product which you should always keep by your side as a weapon to combat against aging.

I have combination skin- oily T-zone and dry-normal skin. By mid day, my T-zone tends to get more oily whereas the cheeks could be dry due to the air-conditioning of my office or car since I’m always on the go too. My skin concerns are on combating signs of aging such as wrinkles and pigmentation as well as keeping my skin hydrated.

So I’m really excited to incorporate this pre-serum into my current skincare regime. To use Nutriganics™ Drops of Youth, you could either drip a few drops and mix it with your moisturizer to enhance the hydration. Or simply drip 2-3 drops and massage it onto your skin before proceeding with your usual serum or moisturizer. I prefer the latter because I get to warm the product up with my palms before giving my face a mini facial massage.

This pre-serum has a light, refreshing scent and is quickly absorbed by the skin. I was glad to find no uncomfortable residue left after application and this was important because I still had the serum and moisturizer to apply next. I like how it keeps my skin pumped and hydrated while I sleep through the night in an air-conditioned bedroom.

You can find Nutriganics™ Drops of Youth (30ml) retailing for S$58.90 at all The Body Shop stores. It may seem like a small bottle but you only need a few drops each time. So a little really goes a long way. This is definitely worth checking out.
