Floral Garage Singapore

This is my first ever flower collab and I’m more than happy to be featuring Floral Garage Singapore! I believe the visual speak for itself in terms of how beautiful they are. These flower looks so pretty that it’s an ease capturing it. I’m loving each and every shot!

The bouquet featured in this shot is call ‘Cinnamon’ in red and I customise it by adding cotton flower! Since most of them are preserve flowers, that means they are very practical where you can separate them out and put them in cute vase! Perfect decor piece if you ask as they will last for a long time!

Reflections Organics | Eco-friendly makeup line

Reflections Organics, founded by Nerissa is a local homegrown brand that’s organic, eco-friendly and cruelty-free makeup line. The colour pigmentation is on point and certainly impressed me upon trying it out myself. Reflections Organics consist a diverse range of highly pigmented and long lasting makeup from Anti-aging BB cream, mineral powder, highlighters, blush and the list goes on and on.

Each product is formulated with up to 90% USDA certified organic ingredients, while providing the wholesome natural nourishment for skin.

Since our skin also absorbs any chemicals in the cosmetics, Reflections Organics aims to protects your health as well as fragile ecosystems of the Earth with detailed attention for environmentally-friendly packaging such using soy-based ink for labels or translucent boxes to reduce printing wastage and recyclable pouches for packaging.

Their products are of quality so you get what you pay for. I use to think that organic products are not as pigmented until I’ve tried out Reflections Organics makeup that really change my persective. The two products that I’ve been using are the Sheer Mineral Bronzer and Mineral Eye Shadow. Since they are both really highly pigmented, I really only need a small amount of products in each use. The texture is very smooth and glides on the skin easily. The first shade on the top is the bronzer and the shade in the bottom is the eye shadow.

Reflections Organics believe in giving back to the less-privileged families hence Reflections is a supporter to the children of needy families in Christian Life Church in Cebu, Bantayan since the brand’s inception through donating a portion of profits made into providing for their education and livelihood. In fact, Nerissa personally has 2 kids whom she has been sponsoring for 2 years now. It’s always a beautiful thing when brands remembers to give back.

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

NEW Essential haircare range

Sponsored Post

Essential is a popular haircare brand from Japan. They has a wide range of products to help repair and care for hair by understanding the needs of Singaporean girls. Offering products ranging from basic care like Shampoo & Conditioner to more intensive treatments like Hair Masks and Leave On Serum/Lotions. 
Essential relaunches with brand new packaging, improved formula and a new variant! 
2 types of range: 
Orange & pink variants – are of richer formula and are suitable for dry/damaged hair without having oily roots 
Blue and yellow variants – are of lighter formula and are suitable for people with oily roots/scalp yet dry hair ends (combination hair) 
Here’s a simple way tp let you know about the 4 different variants better

Nourishing Breakage Defense – for weak & damaged hair 
Moisturizing Frizz Free – for dull & rough hair 
Light Finish Volumizing – for flat and limp hair 
Deep Cleansing Care – for oily scalp & dry ends (new)
So as stated that the blue and yellow variants are for combination hair, so what exactly is combination hair?
It is when the person have an oily roots but dry ends.
Most shampoo in the market do not cater to people with combination hair hence the Essential came out with a Light Finish Volumizing and Deep Cleansing Care that have the optimum combination of Smart Cuticle Care & Sebum Cleansing Technology to target both problems of roots and hair ends. As a result, consumers experience the best of both worlds with one product – airy light roots and moisturized ends

Now it might seem a little confusing as to which to get, well no worries as this simple chart can help you to figure out how to pick the right product for your hair type.
I personally have very oily roots and I don’t have damage dry ends as I don’t use hot tools or ever dye my hair before. Hence the Blue and Pink range is for me.
Of course just by washing is not enough. You need to give your hair proper treatment in order to ensure the overall well-balance of your hair so here’s another chart for you to pick the right hair treatment/mask.
Treatment Tube improved treatment now works its magic on your hair in 30 seconds! 
the result, deeply moisturise and manageable hair. Perfect for busy days.
Hair Mask for more intensive treatment to treat those dry/damaged ends, leaving hair softer, smoother and more manageable.

Since the new Essential has Micro fine All Smooth Essence which delivers nutrients to repair damaged hair surface from root to tip conventional technology concentrates mainly at the roots only. 
I receive the pink range 30 seconds hair treatment tube which save me a lot of time using it as I only need 30 seconds to achieve smooth hair. 
My hair smell good, smooth and is easier to comb through. No worries about tangle.

Here are the blue and pink variants products that I’ve receive for my hair type.

I wash my hair on alternate day so as usual I will use the Deep Cleansing Care shampoo whenever I wash my hair. Conditioning is important so I can use either the Deep Cleansing Care conditioner or my preferred 30 seconds treatment. On days that I feel like pampering my hair or feeling a little dry at the ends I will use the mask and skip the conditioner and treatment as the mask is strong enough to moisture and fizz free.
If you are interested you can get the sample size through HERE Also, remember to like Essential on Facebook and follow Essential on Instagram @essentialsingapore

All the products are already available in leading supermarkets, hypermarkets, western pharmacies and personal care stores.

I hope through those chart you will be able to find the right products for your hair type.

To beautiful and healthy hair~
