The Body Shop’s White Musk – Be A Natural Born Rebel

Have you seen it in stores yet?

Launched in 1981, White Musk® is a world first and a landmark for the fragrance industry – the first cruelty-free musk fragrance to arrive on the market. The fragrance pioneered the use of synthetic musk in replacement of real musk which is extracted from the civet deer using cruel and painful methods. The Body Shop has given their best selling fragrance a sensational, uber-stylish makeover.

I was given a bottle to try out, well, I’ve never tried any White Musk products from The Body Shop before and I do not even know how its supposed to smell like. After trying it out, here’s my verdict….

This is something different from my usual fragrance choices which are usually more floral or fruity. Instead, the white musk is more of a velvety, feminine & sensual fragrance. It contains hints of musk, lily, iris, rose and vanilla. It’s a versatile fragrance so let this bring from work to shopping to that hot date at night.

Rediscover this iconic fragrance in stores today and proudly shout about its cruelty-free pioneering stance!

[Review] Combat acne with Tea Tree Oil

No thanks to the pregnancy hormones and increased humidity, my back ache aka bacne took a turn for the worst. The LMS Spotlight was not helping in areas which were difficult to reach and furthermore, I wasn’t utilizing its full capacity. I was using it just once a night instead of hourly as instructed. The back is just not a convenient spot to treat acne effectively with such a tool, especially when you are doing it alone.

Afraid of using chemical-based products such as BP 2.5%  due to its lack of research for usage during pregnancy. I decided to go for something more natural such as Tea tree Oil. And where else to find affordable tea tree oil then at The Body Shop stores.

Going at just S$18.90 for 10ml, this little green bottle of goodness is a skin savior for me. A best-seller at The Body Shop, the Tea Tree Oil is a natural, targeted solution to help clear blemishes quickly and effectively without over-drying the skin. Renowned for its anti-bacterial benefits, the Tea Tree Oil also helps to soothe blemished skin.

Add on the Tea Tree Oil Body Wash which is going for S$18.90 for 250ml, I know I’m doing my best to combat these nasty zits. And things have been looking up for me, the back is almost cleared of active acne, leaving the scores of brownish scars, a solemn reminder of what a disaster it used to be. Even my hubby has noticed the difference too. :)

Special precautions & warnings:

Pregnancy and breast-feeding: Tea tree oil seems to be safe when applied to the skin. But it should not be taken by mouth. Ingestion of tea tree oil can be toxic. (source)

Do note that some may not recommend usage of tea tree oil during pregnancy but as long as you take care not to accidentally swallow it then you’re fine. Seriously, who in the right mind consumes tea tree oil!?! Talk to your doctor if you are unsure.

GSS is here! Shopaholics are you ready?

It’s the time of the year where every shophaolic excitedly anticipates. Yes, it’s none other than the Great Singapore Sale. So armed with numerous credit cards (to get more discounts off through special shop & bank collaborations), we hunt down bargains with a vengeance.
If you are not one to jostle with the crowds for a good deal, take heart to know that even online stores are sales too. You can now shop within the comforts of your home and still get a good deal.

[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.
