Journey to smoother skin

Sometimes I get very confused with oil seeds and warts. But in any case, we just gotta know that they are irritating and ugly! They make the skin look rough when all we want is smooth skin 🙁

When I visited The Face Aesthetic Clinic, I was like “WAH, Dr. Zhang is DAMN good looking!!!” I couldn’t stop telling James this. LOL. Of course, I was not there to admire him, I was there to tell him the concerns I had with my face. I told him that I wanted the newly developed oil seeds to be removed but he told me the tiny spots were warts and not oil seeds. Then I went “WARTS? I HAVE WARTS ON MY FACE?”



The tiny dots on my face are warts and warts are EXTREMELY common. How do you tell the differences between a wart and an oil seed? The easiest way is to differentiate the color as warts look slightly brown in color.


I even have them on my eyelids. They can spread (omg like cancer cells!) throughout the body but they are harmless although they are caused by viral infection. Go and take a look at your face in the mirror right now. I am pretty certain that 50% of you have warts as well but have never look at them carefully.



When I thought of the 5 days downtime – no makeup, no skincare, just a mask and some eyeliner – I was quite turned off by the idea. Actually you can makeup when the wounds are dry enough but I would prefer to keep everything clean and neat.

Then I thought, if I can sacrifice the 5 days for a smoother and flatter skin, why not?! I did not take me much time to convince myself. Lol. And so tadahhhh!! I went for the treatment – Electrocautery. It uses heat on the living tissue to achieve hemostasis or varying degrees of tissue destruction. Mine was quite mild so it was done pretty fast.

Numbing cream was applied prior the treatment and then put to rest for 15-20 minutes before the laser. Laser sounds painful but it did not hurt a single bit for me because it was a very very mild laser.



IT DIDN’T HURT A SINGLE BIT. Numbing cream work wonders yo! The entire “burning” process only took me 10 minutes. You can’t even feel it when Dr. Zhang is done.



I left the clinic with a facial mask on (as usual) because I had no sunblock on and I wouldn’t step out of anywhere without sunblock. I had facial mask with me for the next 3 days as well.

Although the downtime requires a minimum of 5 days, my skin recovered within 4 days! I don’t know how or why but they started to peel on the 3rd and recovered on the 4th.

Again, I have to repeat this, DO NOT ever visit any beauty parlor to get your mole, oil seeds or warts removed. Not only they are not safe, you DO NOT want scars on your face too.

Once again, confidence boost greatly with the clear skin! More selfies coming your way on my Instagram! :X




I was thinking of removing the annoying mole on my right cheek but everyone already me gave me a firm no when I asked for their opinion 🙁


Maybe I’ll go back to Dr. Zhang for some facial enhancement soon! 😀


Anyway, for people who are interested, they are located at 20 Malacca Street 048979. Nearest MRT station: Raffles Place. Call them at 6223 6788 for appointments!

Oil seeds removal at Halley

I don’t have flawless nor good skin. My The side of my face are filled with oil seeds and I must say that I am very troubled by it. I thought that it has something to do with the genes because my mom has tones of them on her face. I went to search for more information on them and I found out that they are indicators of poor skin health.

The oil seeds (also called Milia seeds) are often found around the eyes and cheeks areas and they are small and hard. I have approached beauticians from beauty parlors about the oil seeds on my face 2 years back but never had the guts to remove them because I don’t quite trust them. If I want them gone, I would visit a doctor.

MFP told Halley Medical about my concern and Dr. Terence from Halley Medical promised to have them removed for me.

Last Monday, I went to Halley Medical for a consultation.

They have a very cosy corner for their patients to put on sunblock/make up after their procedure.


Dr. Tan is extremely nice and very happy-go-lucky! He has this aura that makes his patients feel at ease when they see him. I feel very very comfortable with him and his team.  This aura of his will make you want to go back to him again and again.

The above picture was taken right after the consultation and my appointment for the oil seeds removal was set a week later…..

On the day itself, I was excited but scared at the same time. It is laser that we are talking about. Hence, it is normal for me to associate laser with pain.

I went to the clinic with makeup on as I had 2 errands to do before heading over. So the first step was cleansing.

After cleansing was the application of numbing cream. Dr. Tan applied it on the entire areas that are INFESTED oil seeds. I had some pimples on the forehead due to the monthly period. He told me that the laser could remove them so he applied numbing cream on them as well. Such a generous doctor!

Now you see the irritating pimples from the hormonal changes?!

With only eye/brow make up and numbing cream gone…

The machine that he is going to use on me is a Korean baby. Dr. Tan said that it would not cause any bleeding and this is the most suitable machine for my oil seeds removal. Suitable for removing acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles as well. Proven to have faster recovery time. The faster recovery time assured me somehow. Who doesn’t want clearer and cleaner face faster?

I put aside 1 hour but it all ended in less than half an hour (excluding the 10 mins taken for the numbing cream effect to surface).

Pain? What’s pain? NOT EVEN AN ANT BITE!! The wonders of numbing cream. The magic the doctor worked on.

I knew I have quite a bit of oil seeds but I never knew that I had SO SO much. They could be really tiny or are still growing.

I had a shocked after the entire laser. But was very happy at the same time because I am one step closer to a more even and smooth face.

The entire process was SO COOL.

There were tiny swollen bumps after the treatment but they were just the after-reaction to the laser. The bumps disappeared 2 hours after the laser. Only black spots were left. I was told that I needed 3-5 days to recover and was advise to not apply anything after the laser for 2 days (including sunblock).

I can’t wait to see the healed skin. This is just another addition to my journey to good skin.

Thumbs up!!

Thank you~ The marketing lady from Halley Medical Aesthetics is also another wonderful lady who helped with all the arrangements.

Before I end this post, let me share with you a piece of news.

Do you know that the consultation fee at Halley on a weekday (10am to 4pm) is only $10 for the first visit! Subsequent visit is at $5!! OMGGGGG. What is this? This is even cheaper than visiting a GP when you have fever or cold.

After 4pm, it’s $25 for the first consult and $12.50 for subsequent consult.

Visit their Facebook page for more information! 🙂



Hold on while I do a post treatment post! You can monitor the entire healing process as well! 🙂

The Body Shop – All in one!

Attended a pampering session by The Body Shop just before Chinese New Year and you would definitely be happy to hear this.

They have quite a number of new products that you would like to try on your hair, face, or hands!

Vitamin E is one of the hot selling categories in The Body Shop. And in addition to the Vitamin E family is the Vitamin E Overnight Serum-In-Oil with their highest concentration of wheatgerm oil.

With a unique texture, this non-greasy, fast-absorbing formula delivers fuss-free, instant skin comfort!

I know oil means greasy and oily and trust me, I hate apply oily stuffs onto my face. My initial question to the lady who dropped a drop onto my skin was “Why does it still feel a little oily?”. She confidently told me to continue rubbing it and it will leave me nothing but smooth skin. Indeed. That was it. Smooth and soft, no tinge of greasiness could be felt.

You can either apply it directly to your face or input 1 – 2 drops of it into your moisturiser.

You can now sleep and moisture the skin at the same time!

84% of the women in a study felt that their skin get replenished and 87% of them agreed that their skin felt softer the next day. Talk about radiancy, 76% experienced a more radiant look.

The next talk is their Spring Trend Collection.

In this collection, you will be able to find Shimmer Cube Palette in either Pink or Bronze, Lip Gloss in Vanilla or Rose and Hair Chalk in Pink or Blue.

Priced at $9.90 each, The Body Shop® Hair Chalks are an affordable way to get gorgeously colourful hair. The shimmer cubes are available for $36.90 and the 12ml lip glosses $16.90.

Let’s play with colours!

Hair Chalk had been around for quite some time already and they can be quite damaging to the hair or messy to apply.

The Body Shop has now come up with 2 bold colours – Tickle Me Pink and Falling For Blue.

Unlike other hair chalks you see in the market, it does not come in the form of a chalk but more like an eyeshadow, making it neater and easier to apply in just 3 steps.

1. Place a towel below the intended area.
2. Gather a section of hair and place it on the colour pad and glide down.
3. Seal the colour with any hairspray.

Get the colour on your hair for some fun and wash off the colour with any shampoo once you are done with the day!

Here is Miwitch, happily trying out Tickle Me Pink.

The Shimmer Cube Palettes are really cute because you can detach each of the cute from the box.

Each palette contains four subtle iridescent shades to mix and match. Crease-resistant and suitable for contact-lens wearers. They are dematologically and ophtalmologically tested.

Swatches of the two palettes.
