Deep Hydration for the Skin at Astique

MFP has kindly arranged for a pre-CNY facial for me at Astique Clinic by Dr. Matthew Yap.

Cold weather means flaky skin for the dehyrated skin. Hence, more hydration booster would be needed to keep the skin bouncy and radiant.

My last facial was also probably more than half a year ago, so why not!

Other than their in-house scrub, these were the products used that day – ESTHEMED, which are made in Korea. Well, we all know that Korea is the place for good skincare products!

I enjoy doing facial a lot because it is extremely comfortable, relaxing and at the same time, better skin. The benefits of this facial is to keep the face moisturized and dewy.

The first step is to remove all the makeup by cleansing and scrubbing the face. Scrubbing also remove dead skin cells from the surface, making sure that the skin is absorbing all the nutrients well.

Hydra B3 Spray was sprayed and massaged all over the face before the Hydra B5 Serum.

Following with the Hydra B6 Cream. Okay, I gotta admit, I had this thing for the cream and the masks that came after. They were too goooood! Read on to find out why.

I have read about the mask from Miyake and she commented that the masks actually work like fillers. YES, IT SURE DOES!.

The ASTIQUE Recovery Essence Mask improves elasticity and firmness of the skin, smoothens and softens skin texture, resulting in firmer and younger looking skin.


It locks in moisture, boosting skin cell regeneration and causing skin to glow from within.

The  masks are also retailing at a box of 5 ($155). Definitely worth the money.

It is filled with essence. You can literally see it dripping. So instead of wasting the essence, the beautician rubbed a layer of the essence onto my face before placing the mask on.

Psst: I think I would apply it all over the arms and legs if I were home.

It was left on for a good 20 minutes.

No washing is needed after masking. You can massage the face gently until the essence is absorbed in – as recommended by the nurses/beauticians there 🙂

Take a look at the rest of the photos below at how dewy and bright my skin is! It only took me 60 minutes to see the results. I went out without foundation that day because I was so confident of how my skin was.

You know, whenever I go for facials, I was always told that my skin was rather dull. But not all places promised me results within a visit. But ASTIQUE proved me wrong, anything is possible.

Still rubbing all the good stuffs in….

Close up of the skin… Pictures don’t lie. Neither were they edited. It is as real as the mask and facial.

I was extremely happy with the overall results and this photo was taken right after the facial. Remember, no powder, only eyebrows and eyeliners were drawn.

Big hug for ASTIQUE!

3 Hada Labo New All-in-1 Lotion giveaway

So now, my secret to good skin is no longer a secret – Hada Labo!

I liked Hada Labo even way before I became their ambassador, so everything you see/read here is purely from the bottom of my heart but not because I am their ambassador, so I have to say only the good stuffs.

So you guys like my skin and have long heard about Hada Labo.

But what about the products that I use? I use a lot of products from Hada Labo but my all time favourite was their lotion until they came out with the New All-in-1 lotion – the one you saw in the TVC.

I am already at my N-th bottle and the marking you see below is how much I have left right now. I can give you more than enough reasons on why you should give it a try.

Easy application, non-sticky/oily and convenient.

I swear I am one of the laziest girl alive. I don’t like to slap the face with a lot of different products every night before I sleep or every morning before I put on any makeup. Basically, I don’t like to have my face all clogged up or anything because the make up can get really cakey after hours. I prefer to keep things neat and simple.

The lotion has a watery texture. It is like feeding your skin with the right water. Just like gulping down a can of 100 plus after a marathon!

This amazing bottle here acts as a Hydrating Lotion, Double cleanser and Essence Booster.

I can jolly well skip quite a few steps in my skincare regime with this lotion.

Double cleansing also meant that my skill will be oil and dirt free. Cleansing is often associated with drier skin due to harsh chemical contents but trust me, this lotion not only cleanse but also provides moisture for the skin.

Basically, toners might dry the skin but for this case, NO.

One drop locks up an ocean! – That was the thing which caught my attention few years ago!

I can’t stop stressing on how dehydrated my skin was. But with the essence booster and hydrating lotion formula, I love how bouncy my skin is right now. Nothing can make a girl even happier than good skin/hair days right? (other than love and family).

Going to be feeling clean and fresh is probably one of the best feeling before sleep.

And then waking up with clear and bouncy skin the next morning!

Other than the All-in-1 lotion, I am also currently using the Hada Labo SHA Hydrating Face Wash twice a day.

Once in the morning after I got off the bed and another time before I sleep/applying the lotion.

PSST ladies, hydration is extremely important. Do a comparison between a dry sponge and a wet sponge.

Dry sponge – rough, hard, tears easily
Wet sponge – smoother, soft and theres elasticity.

Nuff said, you should try the products out yourselves to determine if it really work wonders.

And now, because Christmas is just around the corner…….

I have 3 bottles of the Hada Labo New All-in-1 Lotion and…..

a cute mini traveller set to give away!!

Amethystory Mineral Yogurt Mask

What is as edible and good for your skin?

Amethystory Mineral Yogurt Mask

Instant Brightening With Intense Hydration

Yogurt is Not Just Good Food. It can be Healthy Skin Treatment Mask Too!

Amethyst Mineral Yogurt Mask builds upon the natural goodness of premium yogurt with the additional special blend of Amethyst, Tranexamic acid, Hyaluronic acid, Bio Energy Fluid, Ginseng and Olive Oil.

Your skin becomes instantly brighter, feels more moisturized and soft. With regular use, a fairer and more even skin tone will give you a natural radiant glow from within.

Product Efficacies:

– Intensively nourishes and rejuvenates skin, for a soft and smooth complexion
– Excellent whitening and brightening of skin, giving a naturally fair and radiant complexion
– Deeply hydrates and locks in moisture, for supple and healthy looking skin
– Helps to keep skin refreshed and cool
– Non-greasy formula for easy and deep absorption into skin

The application of the mask is actually pretty smooth because it’s cream based and best still, not thick so you can wash it off pretty easily.
 The smell is a BONUS. It has a sweet fruity scent in my opinion.

I guess the only bad thing about it is that there is no scoop, thus, you would have to stick your fingers in to scoop up the mask.
So make sure your fingers are clean thoroughly before sticking them in!

After cleansing your face, gently massage an adequate amount onto your entire face. 
Leave the mask on for around 15 -30 minutes to allow the nutrients to be absorbed into the skin and rinse off thoroughly.

I have dry skin, so the mask can help to keep my face hydrated and at the same time brightening it 🙂

Available in stores at $18.90 only.
