Hi friends, hope everyone’s having a blast on this rainy Monday. Dropping a short blogpost about the recent beauty items I’ve tried – SUNPLAY Skin Aqua’s Tone Up UV Essence and UV Spray. I like that both products are easy to use, and importantly they protect me from those harmful UV rays. To ensure that I stay fair, I am usually very kiasu and particular when choosing a sunscreen for myself. I like a sunscreen that is not greasy and doesn’t make my face white upon application. How about you? Continue reading SUNPLAY Skin Aqua UV Essence and UV Spray Review

(SP) Tucked in the eastern part of Singapore, I visited one of Ouni Beauty’s many Training Centres. Entering the location, there is a very simple, cosy yet spacious enough classroom for the course.
Being in the beauty industry, I am always eager to learn new technology, gain new knowledge and meet like-minded individuals, so I was very excited to be attend one of the class! I dropped by on a regular weekday to attend the last day of the class where Teacher Youmi taught the Korean Skincare course. Graduated from Ewha Womans University, Teacher Yumi is the co-founder of Ouni Korea whom has also chalked up many years of experience as a Beauty Trainer and consultant internationally. She has a gentle demeanour and seemed very easy to talk to; I was told that Teacher Youmi could converse fluently in Korean, Mandarin and English.
The knowledge taught is great if you are starting out in the beauty industry and has zero experience in the industry. Teacher Youmi was always patient with the hundred questions thrown by students and is very hands-on with the actual demonstration of the various Korean Skincare Treatments. For those who wish to learn about the Korean beauty industry trends, the course will cover the below treatments:
(1) Korean Water Shine BB Covered Treatment
If your dream is to obtain the flawless and dewy skin that Koreans have, you no longer have to travel to Korea to find out all about the Korean skincare secrets that helps you be naturally beautiful. With Ouni expanding to South East Asia, you can get to attend classes in Singapore, Taiwan, China and Korea.
(2) Korean 24K Gold Mask Treatment
This treatment is for lifting and firming purpose to help reduce the appearance of lines whilst brightening the skin.
(3) Korean MTS Facial Lift
An 8 hours class, the class starts from morning 9am till 6pm. The class that I attended had about 10-12 students, most of them young, in their twenties. For a leisurely class to enrich your beauty knowledge or learn something new; don’t miss exploring opportunities with Ouni Beauty. I heard that their company has since expanded to have more than 50 outlets and 9 academies in the Asia region, and there are more than three thousand of students whom had attended their courses.
Graduates will also receive a certificate from the HQ in Korea upon completion of the course. Besides the Skincare course, Ouni also specialize in Korean Semi-Permanent Embroidery and Korean Eyelash Extension courses if you are interested. Visit their Facebook page here for more information and sign up could be done through here.

Attended MicaBeauty’s Know Your Skin private event with my beautiful Cindy two weeks back, and was introduced to the varied skincare and make-up products from MicaBeauty.
A U.S. brand, MicaBeauty, it carries 100% all natural cosmetics and I was won over with the Jewels range, which is an anti-aging line with organic extracts (including gold dust, diamond dust, pearl dust and gemstone dust) to help reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Never too young to start equipping myself with these anti-aging tips yo!
Through the session, I learnt about Mica’s minimalist approach to skincare and that Mica is actually an ingredient that imparts a sparkly white appearance to cosmetics and personal care products. By the way, the Jewels line is both luxurious looking and highly coveted.
Here, I am holding on to the Gold Plasma Night Recovery Serum. It is a late night recovery treatment to fight signs of aging, allowing you to wake up to a more beautiful skin every day.
What amazed me that session is this Volcanic Sauna Masque that is powered by heat technology. The volcanic ash ingredient helps absorbs oil and debris trapped deep within pore, which is to my delight as I get small pimples on my face very easily! So I love anything that can deep cleanse my skin. The masque is recommended to be used with the Recovery Activating Serum, and the warm feeling generated by the serum feels so comfortable and good on the skin. It is like hot sauna for the pores! Volcanic ash is known to have many benefits which include reducing cellulite, sun damage and even wrinkles. I tried the masque on my hand that session and my hand felt so sparkly clean without the aftermath tightness that other brands of masks leave.
MicaBeauty also has a series of mineral make-up products, consisting of all-natural powders and minerals to suit all skin types. I chose a couple of their glittery eyeshadow colours (see below for the insane number of colours available!) which I am saving to use for CNY; so, do look out for reviews on my IG (@JacelynPhang) to find out how I rate the products!
MicaBeauty is located at Chinatown Point #01-13 and Vivocity #02-162, feel free to check them out if you are around the area. 🙂
Here’s wishing everyone a prosperous and beautiful year ahead in 2017! Happy New Year friends!
With love, Jacelyn

For every grooming talk I give, I can’t emphasize enough that make-up is to enhance your features and to hide your flaws, don’t over-do it. Almost no one recognize that this is me =.= Remember to embrace your beauty girls! You are more beautiful than you think you are.

(SP) It’s been awhile since I last updated this space as I had been tasked for several overseas assignments by my company to conduct the Mid Brain class in different cities. This time I am back in Singapore for two weeks and I hope I can complete as many work as I would like.
Before I go for any overseas assignments, I would like to get my eyelash extension done as it saves a lot of my make up time. This is extremely important because I can sleep in a little longer and save A LOT of my time on eye make-up. All I have to do is dust some loose powder on the face and brush a little blusher on the cheeks; and I will be ready for my day!
I was invited to Lushlashh which is centrally located at 13A Bali Lane.
Stepping in, the outlet is spacious and roomy; there is also a waiting area with sofa, so whoever who is accompanying you for the session can wait comfortably too. I am super afraid of the cold, so I love that I can tuck under their comfy blanket when I am on the treatment bed while getting my lashes fixed.
Here’s a quick guide and some tips for you to note if you haven’t done eyelash extension before:
- Have an idea of what you want
If not, fret not too; before the treatment, you can speak to the therapist to understand the lashes they have and pick one from their selection. I like my lashes dramatic otherwise I see no point in doing it. In my opinion, if you want something that others can barely notice, you might as well just use a mascara to achieve the same effect for yourself. But not everyone thinks the same, so Lushlashh has a variety of choices for you to pick. As for myself, I decided to go for C-curl 12mm for a natural yet WOW effect.
2. Never open your eyes during the treatment
Lushlashh specializes in strand by strand eye lash extension using products directly imported from Korea. Applying a full set of lashes takes about an hour so you get to have a shut eye while having it done. I think I fell asleep halfway haha. Do avoid opening your eyes during the application so that no glue will get into your eye!
3. Always check the eyelash extension results
When it is done, always check the mirror to see if you are happy with the results. There were some strands that were wrongly glued to my lower lash line, I told the therapist and within the next 5 mins, I have the perfect lashes I have been looking for! At Lushlashh, you can be sure you get to be happy with how the lashes look before you leave the place.
4. Avoid oil-based make up remover for a lasting results
For a lasting result, avoid using oil based products or makeup remover around the eye area. They could weaken the adhesive glue and cause lashes to fall off.
My overall experience with Lushlashh was good. They were thoughtful to use an eye mask for the eye instead of using painful sticky eye tape for bottom lashes. I like that the eye mask could help to rejuvenate and brighten my dark eye circles while I had my extension done. Most importantly, I like the outcome of the extensions! The lashes were feathery and light, I didn’t feel that there was anything that was weighing down or making my eyes uncomfortable.
Thank you Lushlashh for keeping my lashes fluttery and ready for any work trips!
