Shopping for necessities at Guardian Singapore

Where do you usually shop for your beauty necessities?

For me, I try to shop for them at places near home because I tend to stock up a few bottles of each product at one go. Thankfully, Guardian can be found almost anywhere!

Here are some products that I got from Guardian which I am currently using on top of the usuals that you have already seen on my Instagram!

1) Facial Masks

If you watch my Instagram stories, you will notice that I mask very frequently. Almost once every 2 days. I literally buy masks everywhere and Guardian carries a lot of brands with one of my top favourite being Dr. Morita!

I have to admit that I stock the mask up even more when they have 30% off during Guardian Beauty Days 😛

2) Aprilskin Perfect Magic Cover Fit Cushion

Aprilskin is exclusively available in Guardian Singapore stores only. I have previously tried 3-4 of their cushions and my favourite is none other than their Aprilskin Perfect Magic Cover Fit Cushion because of the dewy finish. They are currently available in a limited edition pastel pink packaging (usual packaging: Black)!

For just $49.90, you can get Aprilskin Perfect Magic Cover Fit Cushion,  Perfect Water Fit Make-Up Refresh Pad and Perfect Magic Kill Fit Tint. Quickly get your hands on them before they go out of stock!

The cushion is also suitable for people with dry skin as it has a moisture serum base. Skincare in a make up product. What’s not to love?

Instead of the usual mesh, the foundation is sealed with a metal plate which makes it extra hygienic as the product will not come in contact with air directly.

Base and lip colour as seen below…. are all from Aprilskin!

3) Antipodes Vanilla Pod Hydrating Day Cream

This brand is also exclusively available in Guardian only.

Antipodes is a New Zealand skincare brand that contains no nasties – safe for people with sensitive skin. The brand is also certified as organic and vegetarian. In fact, this is my very first bottle of Antipodes and I am pleasantly surprised by the results.

My skin feels very nourished and hydrated ever since I starting using the Day Cream. They have other products as well so do visit Guardian if you are keen to give them a try.

4) Pantene Micellar Water Pure & Cleanse Shampoo

We have heard of Micellar Water but shampoo? It’s a first for me! Guardian sent me 2 bottles of them and I am now a fan.

Just like the micellar water make up remover, the shampoo cleans the hair really well. It felt as though my hair was stripped off from greasy oil, hair sprays and dirts from the environment. Coupled with the treatment, it leaves my dry hair moisturised and slightly less frizzy.

5) Schwarzkopf got2b Volumaniac Bodifying Mousse

After every hair wash, I always end the day/night with hair oil or hair treatment. On most nights, I use their in-house brand Botaneco Garden Organic Chair Seed Oil & Honey on my hair. And because I love having extra volume on my hair, I will sometimes couple it with Schwarzkopf got2b Volumaniac bodifying mousse for that extra boost!

Schwarzkopf hair products smell so good on my hair that I can leave the house without perfume. They have the Seborin series which can help with hair loss problems too.

Of course, there are too many products for me to list because I shop at Guardian a lot but I hope that you will find my little reviews useful!

Guardian Singapore always have new launches that I look forward to. Visit their Facebook and Instagram at @guardiansg to keep yourself updated or you can also shop at Guardian Online at guardian.com.sg!

Boots is now available in Singapore!

Boots. I have already heard of this name even before I went over to UK. Some of the range and amount of brands they carries are not commonly found in Singapore. But now, this UK’s leading pharmacy-led health and beauty retailer will now open a dedicated area within Guardian.

The first place that introduced Boots in Singapore was the Guardian flagship store in Ngee Ann City (since 19 October 2013). With effect from 1 Dec 2013, more locations will be introducing boots as well.

You can find them at Great World City, Parkway Parade, Suntec City, Paragon, Vivo City, Nex, Jem and Tanglin Mall.

Boots will offer the popular and much-loved brands including No7 skincare and cosmetics, Botanics, Champneys, Mark Hill, Boots Dermocare and Boots Extracts. Their beauty advisors will also be available to help answer your quires about the brand and products.

Among the items in the picture above, No7 cosmetics and Boots Soltan Once Suncare Lotion are my favorites. You know I love anything that has to do with lip color and sun care.

 

You can now save the trouble of asking your friends to buy these brands back from UK for you or shopping online for them. Boots just made it easier for you!

For more information on Boots please visit Boots’ dedicated Singapore website www.sg.boots.com.

New product from NIVEA!

NIVEA has a new product!

And this is none other than NIVEA Aqua Effect Refreshing Cleansing Mousse.

Proper cleansing is important, and it is exceptionally important for girls who put on make up on a frequent basis. Without proper cleansing, the make up residues would reside on our face or inside our pores. YUCKS.

Having said that, hydration and moisture is also as important. No one wants dry, wrinkled or rough skin.

When the skin is dehydrated, it can impair the skin’s resilience and enzyme function, hence, loses volume and resulting in rough skin.

Aqua Effect Refreshing Cleansing Mousse with Vitamin E and Hydra IQ was formulated for people with normal skin and it can be used by all age groups.

Vitamin E is an antioxidant while Hydra IQ keeps the skin hydrated.

Now, NIVEA Cleansing Mousse is only a bottle of clear liquid. BUT! Don’t judge a book by its cover. Don’t judge the mousse by it’s look!

2 pumps is sufficient for me.

The texture of the mousse provides you with a brand new experience with the combination of different surfactants when the pump dispenser is used.

As you can see, it ensures a very fine and creamy foam.

It feels really smooth and soft during application.

Best of all, IT SMELLS GOOD!

The foam can deeply cleanse the skin and remove all the dirt particles but yet does not dry out the skin and maintain the skin’s natural moisture balance.

After cleansing the face, remember to end it off with a toner, to clarify the skin and a moisturizer to provide your skin with moisture.

Cleansing both in the morning and night is a must for everyone, no matter how clean your face might be (in your opinion), as dirt particles may not be visible to the naked eye.

Morning cleansing removes sebum and grease deposits that form on the skin overnight while evening cleansing removes the make up, sebum and general daily grime.

Why not add something mild, light, yet effective to your skincare regime?

The unique NIVEA Aqua Effect Cleansing Mousse provides a refreshing start to your morning, while at night also gently cleansing you of the stress and negative influences you’ve gathered throughout your day – leaving your skin feeling pampered and ready for a good and well-deserved beauty sleep.

Tried it, and loved it!

NIVEA Aqua Effect Refreshing Cleansing Mousse is only retailing at $14.50 for 150ml only at Guardian.
