REVIEW: Tokyo Bust Express – Free Detox Beauty Program

unnamed

If you think people like who, who are not exactly busty have no issues with our bust (except being small), then you are so wrong. I knew exactly what the problems were so I went to Tokyo Bust Express to seek treatment.

Tokyo Bust Express is located at 3 different places:

Novena Square 2: 10 Sinaran Drive #B1-111/112 Singapore 307506
Next Mall: 23 Serangoon Central #03-32 Singapore 059300
Regency House: 123 Penang Road, Regency House #07-13 Singapore 238464

I went to the outlet at Novena Square 2 and boy, it was so conveniently located next to the MRT station! I was so so worried about getting lost initially.





You will not miss the welcoming pink when you walk past them. And when I entered the parlor, I was greeted by a group of happy ladies! There is absolutely nothing to feel shy about because all of them were pretty smiley and friendly.





Prior to the treatment, I had a consultation of 20 minutes. I shared my concerns with my therapist and true enough – I knew my bust was a little saggy. What I didn’t know was that my bust was also pretty distant. The therapist told me that it could be due to my lack of knowledge during puberty. Like I did not get the right bra or I wore them too loose 🙁

So make sure you are wearing the right bra, or buy your daughter(s) the right one. Please do not save on bras! Thankfully, she told me that I was not hopeless. Lol. There are treatments to help bring the bust back to the correct shape and place. Instead of focusing on enhancing the bust size, I went for firming instead. She also explained to me the ingredients used for the treatment and that surely put me at ease.





The first thing that came to my mind when I was the room was “ahhhh, time to enjoy and sleep” and I was right. I fell asleep for a good 20 minutes.





We started the treatment with a scrub and hand massage, followed by a machine which sends micro-electric currents onto the bust. The currents are pretty light and there was absolutely NO pain at all. They felt more like a massager instead. It can help in the absorption of all the nutrients that was applied before that.

The massage also can help “push” my boobs inwards to help them get back to the correct place. If you are rather busty and the boobs are not at the right place, they can help you with that can who knows, you may have a deeper cleavage! Hehe.





One more #selfie before I nap away~





It is pretty obvious that I am pretty satisfied with the results because I feel slightly bustier with the boobs in the right place. Of course, I would need maintenance to keep them in place.





Thank you Tokyo Bust Express for the experience!

REVIEW: MOSCHINO Pink Fresh – A Fruity & Floral Fragrance for every girl

o.52234

Last year, I put a bottle of MOSCHINO Fresh Eau De Toilette (Blue) on my shelf for display because it was too cute to be emptied! This year, this summer, MOSCHINO Pink Fresh was gifted to me again. YAYYY! What a cute set of fragrance on display! Aren’t we a fan of MOSCHINO’s accessories and perfume bottles?!

This time round…..

100% MOSCHINO!

100% Fresh!

100% Pink!



MOSCHINO PINK FRESH COUTURE is the new floral fragrance that every girl must have. It is MOSCHINO’s interpretation of the original Fresh perfume – sparkling and feminine notes suited for the everyday lady who wants to have fun. Because of the fruits found at the different notes, be sure to expect a tinge of fun with the scent of the fruits!

Head notes – Pink grapefruit, Casis, Lily of the Valley
Heart notes – Pomegranate, Wild Rose, Pink Jacinth
Base notes – Cedar Wood, Ambrox, Musk





A lot of you may thought that all you have to do is to press the spray lever…. But the actual fact is… You will have to open the cap and spray it like the other fragrances out there. You wouldn’t want to spoil the lever by pressing on it too often because I bet you will keep the bottle after emptying the fragrance! Hehe.





I hope the bottle has brought a smile on your face. You can get MOSCHINO Pink Fresh at Metro Paragon – 290 Orchard Road Singapore 238859.

REVIEW: W.Lab K-beauty brand is finally in Singapore!

CIMG8185

If you haven’t already know, W.Lab is finally available in Singapore!! It was originally founded in 2013 in Korean, but Thank you Aresa Singapore for bringing it in! Honestly, W.Lab is a fairly new brand to me but I have heard beauty bloggers raving about it before! I saw their stores in myeongdong too!

What I love about the brand is that they emphasises the use of natural ingredients so lesser chemicals are introduced into their products. This benefits people who have sensitive skin a lot because they can’t use every single brand out there. I may not have sensitive skin but trust me, when I shop for my cosmetics and body care, I tend to go for products which contains lesser chemicals.

Even though we were sponsored with a whole range of their products, I am only going to share with you some of my favourites! What attracted me to Blossom White Cushion was the packaging. I thought the coverage was going to be light but BOOMS, when I spread it evenly over my face, my pores were gone instantly!





It is available in 3 shades, 13, 21 and 23. I am currently using 21 if you need to know! 🙂

It works like a skincare too as it has anti-aging and wrinkle improvements properties. So if you think that you are too old for it, NOPE! Give it a try! The cushion also contains 33% Damask Rose Water, yay! I hope that they will come out with some refill pack or something soon!





Another makeup product that I seriously need to rave about is their eyeshadow palettes – W.Lab Pocket Shadow Palettes. I knew I was in love when I first saw them because of the colours. Each palette contains both glittery and matte colours which means that you can use them for a day or night look.





Some people may find it hard to achieve a glittery look for the eyes because glittery eyeshadows are usually not so pigmented but you will be surprised to find the colours are actually fairly pigmented. The swatches below are done with a single swipe. I must say that the glitters didn’t fail me.





W.Lab has a lot of different blushers but we were given Bling Bling Cheek during the event. Just 1 swipe and you can get gradient cheeks! So effortlessly easy.





The Velvet Colour Stick sure lives up to its name. It has a creamy and velvety texture that glides onto the lips easily. How do my Chilly Red shade fare?

Even though it is quite pigmented, I am glad to share that it is easy to wash off as well.





A makeup look isn’t complete if you don’t have a contour palette or W.Lab Color Master Cover Kit.

This small palette here contains 6 shades to address your flaws (if any). The Flower Lip & Cheek Kit comes in a similar packaging and the colours are surprisingly highly pigmented. If you need you change your lip colour at least two times a day, simple slot this into your makeup pouch any day!





I tend to have oily face after spending half a day outdoor and I think I am not the only one having this issue. With the weather so crazily hot in Singapore, how can our make up not melt or look greasy after 5 hours?

This leads to my next product, Sebum Out Finish Pact. After I am done with my look, I tend to finish it off with Sebum Out Finish Powder, followed by the Finish Pact. If you have the same issue as me, you can pad on some Finish Pact powder every 4 hours to mattify your face. It can also reduce sedum secretion and brighten your overall complexion at the same time.





So love the texture!





Enough of make up. How about their skincare? Here’s my verdict! Do take note that they have more than just these. I am just sharing some of my favourites 🙂

I got people asking me questions like – What is a Cleansing Balm? What does it do?

Simply put, a Cleansing Balm is a make up remover. I personally feel that it is almost the same as an oil-based makeup remover.





The texture? It feels a little powdery and oily but that is what makes cleansing easier. A simple scoop of it can effectively clean away an entire face of make up. Remember to use a facial cleanser after that though. Like most make up remover, this is not a 2-in-1 thing. I am quite sure I will be buying the cleansing balm again after my first tub.





I love their pore series – Black Kill too!! Probably because I am very into pores products recently HEHE. I need to praise their Black Kill Pore Cleanser because of the rubber brush!





The brush is soft and gentle enough for my cheeks. Suitable for very very lazy people like me.





Don’t judge my pores but this is how I use it! I press the button to dispense some cleanser twice and rub them on my cheeks for a good 30 seconds on each side.





They have other products like Body Scrub, Cleansing Foam and even Quick Whitening Cream. I haven’t had the time to try them out but if I ever do, I will share the verdicts with you guys! 😀





W.Lab is available in the following places:

Sasa Singapore selected outlets – Tampines 1, Jurong Point, Westgate, Vivocity, Wisma Atria, ION Orchard
Zalora

REVIEW: ORBIS Sunscreen On Face Sunscreen

IMG_6757

I am someone who would go light anytime – be it my body weight or the make up I apply on my face 😛

If I can avoid putting on make up on weekends, I would. But one thing that I can’t ever miss or give up is sunscreen. Prevention is always better than cure. With sun UV rays so strong in Singapore, I don’t want to risk walking on the streets without sun protection and going home to skin pigmentation. There is absolutely no reason to skip your sunscreen unless you don’t mind having brown spots on your face!

Today, I will be sharing about Orbis Sunscreen On Face.





The difference between ORBIS Sunscreen on Face Light and Sunscreen on Face Moist is the texture. Light is more watery in texture as compared to Moist, which is more creamy. Even though I would prefer watery texture but the creamy texture for MOIST is not as thick as I had imagined it to be so… I am good with both!





(on the left – Light, on the right – Moist)

These two are my first tube of each and honestly, I was sold by the texture. They are ultra-lightweight! On top of the sun protection of SPF34 PA+++, both sunscreens can double up as a make up base or primer too! In simple terms, I can apply ORBIS Sunscreen On Face Light on weekends with no other base and still look fresh because of its natural-looking coverage.

That’s me with eye makeup and ORBIS Sunscreen On Face Light as base only! You can still see a little pores on the face but well, I only need minimal coverage on weekends! As for weekdays, use them as a primer or base anytime.





Another point to comment on is their Triple Threat Protection as the sunscreen contains Damage Block Veil that not only shields the skin from harmful UV rays, but also protects us against near infrared rays and air pollutants. Air pollutants are everywhere and that includes dirt and dust from the environment. Do you know how dirty the air is every time you cross the road? *urgh* I don’t even want to talk about the air from the car’s exhaust pipe.

With these protection found in the sunscreens, it can protect our skin from the three major damages which we are constantly exposed to.





Don’t believe me? Give them a try! Both Sunscreen on Face Light and MOIST are already available at all ORBIS counters and stores at $18 each. You can also shop online here: https://orbis.com.sg/cart/product/list/id/uvcare!

Review: Astique Clinic Cheek Fillers to fight tired looking face!

IMG_5829

Ageing takes place every single day.

Do you feel your cheeks are sagging as you age? How about those apple cheeks, are they still prominent?
If you haven’t felt the difference, take a look at your photos from 5-6 years ago.

James felt that his cheeks were sagging and were also not as full as before. True enough, he does get a lot of comments like “Why do you look so tired?” or “Are you very busy lately?”

Do you know that sunken cheeks can make one look tired and dull even though he or she may have had enough sleep every day?

Take a look at his selfie below. Can you tell that he is actually quite tired looking?





He may still have fat cheeks (as described by some of his friends) but look at the areas under his eyes. They are quite “empty”..

So one fine day, on our casual date, he said “Hey B, I think I am going to get some cheek fillers done at Astique”. LOL. It was not just some casual remark. He made the appointment later.

Seeing how cheek fillers can make one look younger (more youthful), I was tempted to give it a try too.

It was in fact, a very fast process. You can get 6 months to a year of youthfulness in less than half an hour!
1. Cleansing of face (5 minutes)
2. Numbing cream (20 minutes)
3. Fillers injection to both cheeks (5 minutes)





My cheeky boy!





Only 2-3 injections were done to each side. I prefer fillers to plastic surgery because I can control how full I want the cheeks to be. More importantly, I do not have to go under the knife and endure the downtime to look young. You will need weeks to recover after a plastic surgery but for cheek fillers, there is absolutely no down time! You can even put on make up right after the treatment.

It will look as though we just had some natural-looking enhancement done.





James had a flatter surface under the eyes but Dr. Celine advised him not to inject too much at one go just in case the fillers caused water retention.

Well, he will have the option to inject more after the fillers have settled down 2 weeks later. We would rather take baby steps than to make a huge but wrong move.





Some people may suffer from slight bruising around the cheek areas but we had none. Perhaps only the needle prick but it went off after a few hours.
The results were instant and so far so good for us. He is obviously very very satisfied with the results as he is no longer tired looking! As for me, I wouldn’t say no to a fuller-looking face. Can I be your Korean-looking girlfriend? Haha.

The results may differ from individuals to individuals. The fillers may only last for 6-9 months and for some others, up to 2 years depending on the type of filler used.
Check out how we look right now, obviously better and younger! Hehe.





So glad we are so well-taken care of by Dr. Celine from Astique Clinic. I will be going back to her to remove my pigmentation next!

NEW: Face the Wild, Face the Camera with SK-II

unnamed

Imagine trekking through the smoldering dry heat in a scorching, arid desert, or hiking up an active volcano with billowing clouds of intense, toxic sulphur gases. Do you think you’ll be able to survive that and take a picture-perfect beauty shot?

Embarking on its most adventurous campaign yet, SK-II unveils the SK-II “Face The Wild, Face The Camera” Extreme Expedition Series – a series of short films produced by National Geographic. Four international female personalities put their skin to the ultimate test of nature to ‘Face The Wild’ in some of the most beautiful yet harsh environments on Planet Earth. They are then challenged to ‘Face The Camera’ for a beauty photoshoot to see if their skin truly withstood the bitter test of the environments to remain crystal clear, with the help of the iconic SK-II Facial Treatment Essence.

Can all four celebrities – top Japanese actress, Kasumi Arimura, global fashion icon, Chiara Ferragni, top Chinese actress, Nini, and top South Korean actress and national boxer, Lee Siyoung – survive their first-of-their-kind extreme missions?

Only one way to find out – watch the SK-II Face The Wild, Face The Camera Extreme Expeditions trailer here now:

NEW: Casio’s latest selfie camera – EX-TR80

IMG_3726

The new generation of TR80 from Casio will BLOW you away for sure! These selfie-oriented compact digital cameras never fail to meet a girls expectation.

As you can see, it is available in three colours – White, Pink and Black. My personal favourite is black because one can never go wrong with Black & Gold!





This time round, not only are there additional functions, you can find glitters around the lens too!





As an owner of TR60 and TR70, I must say that TR80 impresses me the most. Of course, how can one go wrong with a newer generation right?

The LED Screen display is 3.5-inch now. I also love the new functions that can’t be found in the older models. I don’t even have to shape my jaw in MeiTuXiuXiu anymore!! Just kidding! I don’t! Lol.

If you visit the make-up mode page, you will realise that other than the Smooth Skin effect, you can find other effects like Dark Circles Remover, Slim Face, Face Brightness and Sculpt. Keep your contouring and shading tools at home. You don’t have to touch up before you take a selfie/wefie outside with Casio TR80.

The camera also automatically detects and adjusts skin quality regardless of the amount of makeup worn, producing glowing selfies while retaining beauty naturally.








Once you are done with your settings, you can save it so that the next time you on the camera, you don’t have to adjust the settings again!





A girl can take at least 30 selfies before they find the right one to upload. With that, TR80 allows you to compare your pictures against each other. You don’t have to swipe left to right and back to left again to compare anymore.  Thank god for the split-screen display.





Notice the heart icon in the picture above? You can favourite your photo and retrieve them through the favourites tagging function when you need them.

The double LED light also allows you tot ale a beautifully illuminated complexion selfie in a dark setting – be it in a dark cafe, bar or party. Try taking it with a smart phone and TR80. They are different. TR80 will never give you the grainy effect.

Some similar functions that can also be found in the previous generations are personalising your selfies with Selfie Art, Bluetooth Smart and EXILIM Auto Transfer.

The Auto Transfer function is something I can’t live without because life can never be the same again when you can upload your photos taken via a camera straight. Photos taken via my current smartphone can’t be compared to TR80. No, I am pretty sure about that… At least not for mine.

Here is one selfie taken with TR80 itself! It was already 6pm when I took this photo. My makeup smudged from an entire day of work and errands ran but I still look fresh in the photo! My chin is obviously slimmer too LOL!





These babies are already available islandwide at $1,299. Do check them out before they go out of stocks! I remember TR70 going out of stock one month after the launch :O

REVIEW: Stay White with White Shock by BlanX

Screen Shot 2017-02-08 at 10.12.20 PM

It is nice to see people leaving cute comments on my Instagram photo. For example, I said “If everything from Italy sounds good, then so is BlanX!” and someone commented “In that case, my gf needs to be from Italy too!”. This just proves that people do read my captions afterall! Haha.

And yes, BlanX is indeed the number 1 toothpaste in Italy! I wanna fly there one day!

Being a heavy coffee and tea drinker, I am often faced with the same issue – stained/yellow teeth.

Teeth whitening kits at the dentist can be expensive. There are cheaper options like buying whitening kits online but if you want a faster and fuss-free option, look for whitening toothpaste! We don’t have to put in extra effort to set time aside to brush our teeth right? It is not like brushing teeth is an option. Perfect solution for lazy people like me.

BlanX has a series of different toothpaste but my favourite is their White Shock! Let me go into more details for White Shock later.





The White Shock that I am talking about is the set on the right below. It comes with an LED light and the total set will only cost you $12.95.





White Shock is also the world’s first whitening toothpaste that continues to whiten your teeth in a natural way everything you smile. We noticed a slight difference in the colour of our teeth after each use and we can’t help but feel that this toothpaste is a confidence booster!





Do you know that each use and each smile can help whiten your teeth?

Actilux Technology is a patented compound ingredient that intensifies its whitening action in a natural way when exposed to the light. This technology is found in White Shock and it can last up to 24 hours after you brush your teeth.

The photocatalitic micro-crystals, Actilux binds to the enamel of the teeth during regular brushing and this creates an invisible barrier that removes and blocks the causes of teeth staining – like your usual coffee and tea. So the more you smile, the more light it is being exposed to, and the whiter your teeth gets!

BlanX LED Light is specifically designed to maximize the activation of Actilux. Other than whitening the teeth, Actilux can also provide antibacterial protection.





It is very easy to use. Just throw away the usual cap of the toothpaste and replace it with the LED light.





When you turn the cap, the LED light will automatically be activated and you can re-use the LED Light because it has a 3-month battery life!





Sounds amazing already?! Get ready for your Valentine’s date by using White Shock! Just remember to keep smiling when you are on White Shock. That is what we are doing now. We are trying hard to get rid of the additional stains we got from all the feasting during CNY. No one will ever complain that you smile too much 😉

If you are interested, you can find BlanX at selected Watsons store and White Shock is currently retailing at $12.95.
