My First Chemical Peeling Experience | Charismata Aesthetics

Here’s what I have to say

Firstly, it my first ever Chemical Peeling treatment which is done at Charismata Aesthetics. I was kind of worried at first since I’m in the mid of having a breakout as well as areas that are recovering hence, the idea of “Chemical Peel” sounds a little daunting to me. I even double confirm to ensure that with my skin condition, it isn’t gonna have a bad effect.

For Chemical Peeling based on my Beauty Therapist Kerlyn, she shared that the basic amount of acid use is around 35%. Since it’s my first try, she went with that amount. The acid at most should NEVER exceed 60% caused that would eventually burn the skin. (interesting to know)

Secondly, many would have asked does it hurt? For me, no. At 35%, you can feel a little bit of tingly effect but certainly not burning for me. I particularly enjoy the process because halfway through, I fall asleep. What woke me up was the COLD acne control relief mask that has Aloe Vera and a strong hint of Mint which is super cooling~ Instant refreshing!

Even though chemical peeling sound strong, it’s surprising quite mild on my skin, so mild that I would prefer a little stronger because the usual kind of facial that I’ve been before would go through the process of squeezing out the clogged pores. Which is why it hurts but I do prefer most my pore getting unclogging hence I didn’t mind enduring the pain.

As for chemical peeling, it perfect for people who doesn’t want to deal with any pain; have sensitive skin or even severe acne skin. Because Kerlyn shared that she used to have severe acne skin on her forehead area where she would go to doctors, go on pills and spend tons of money but what in the end really works for her was chemically peeling. Now if you look at her, you would not believe she used to have problematic skin.

. In my opinion, is best to go Chemical Peel Treatment a few times for long term result. Obviously, you can see the different after the first try where your skin is brighter, smoother and clearer, but if you want long term result then pampering yourself with Chemical Peeling would means better skin over time.

With all these said, if yourself or your friends are interested in trying out Chemical Peeling Treatment, 1 session is S$248 but Charismata Aesthetics is giving my readers 10% off if you quote my name! I hope this post gives you a little clarification and if you need to know more, just hit me up in the comment section below!

Thank you Charismata Aesthetics, for having me and the very sweet Eileen who was there the whole time to capture all these shots <3

Look Book | Fur & Fall

Fall has always been my favourite season. Unfortunately, in Singapore, you can’t feel it. However, that’s not stopping me from styling in Fall looks. In this look, I play with the fur coat that has been lounging in my wardrobe for the longest time. This is still pretty wearable in Singapore IF you are staying in air-conditional place.
The turtle neck top is actually pretty thin in terms of material so pairing it with short still keeps you relatively cool. The fur coat is obviously the one that’s gonna keep you warm in cold temperate. Plus, it’s a vest fur coat so its still not too hot compare to those with sleeves. If you have to head out of the mall, just take off the coat, no hassle there.

Kohepets for your pets

Sponsored

Pet food, people who have pet like me knows that we are often out looking for good deals for our lovely pet. In my case, I often travel a bit further just to get my Sofie’s food and treats at a more affordable price. The only problem with that is I’ve to carry it all the way back home and to be honest, it’s really TIRING. Then again there are options like free shipping from other sites, which another problem arises, I’ve to buy at least S$100 worth of products. 

So image how delighted I am to learn that Kohepets does Free Shipping over S$60 and delivered within 2 days, talk about efficiency. That’s also a price point that I can hit as I don’t buy a lot of things. Now, I can wait in the comfort of my own house and with a few click, I can get my items delivered to my doorstep in a few days. They do regular promotion on food, treats & etc so you can get pretty good deals out of it.
Most physical stores give free sample when you ask. Although Kohepets is online base, they do have a section of free sample that you can pick from with any purchase. They carry more than 5000 range of products including premium brands such as Wellness, K9 Natural, Merrick, Honest Kitchen & etc. If you are into new products, they are also one of the first stores to carry them.

As for their Facebook and Instagram page, they have occasional contests so you might want to follow them as well!

One important point I wanted to share with you is the fact that they have a Donation section where instead of giving money, you can buy food (at 38% off) that are donated and delivered directly to Animal Lovers League or Uncle Khoe’s K9 shelters. Isn’t that such a lovely way to help out other animals?!

Those things above are what I’ve picked for my dog, Sofie. (hehe a little cameo of her too)
I have been feeding her Wellness’s completes puppy dry food. She enjoys her JerHigh sticks for treats. Since she is 6 months now, the period where she is still into chewing so I’m glad that she loves the SmartBones Rawhide-free Chicken chew in which she literally devoted it.

I’m definitely gonna continue getting Sofie’s stuff through Kohepets in the future so I don’t have to travel which really save me alot of traveling $$$. Thank you Kohepets on behalf of Sofie for all the yummy food!

Hugs,
Cassandra
