Refresh your scalp with Dr. FORHAIR Folligen Haircare: Review

It’s been some time since my scalp gave me any problems but due to the cold weather in Shanghai back from my business trip, my scalp has been really dry and flaky. I thought that the problem could be solved by coming back to the tropical climate and diligently scrubbing my scalp with shampoo,  but I was wrong. I couldn’t see an improvement in my flaky scalp until I’ve tried the Dr.FORHAIR Folligen Haircare range. I must say that the products came just in time for me to save my scalp issues.

Dr.FORHAIR is a hair care and scalp specialist company, with its products formulated via the clinical expertise of highly-recognised hair transplant medical group FORHAIR, which has a trusted 24-year history in Korea. I too didn’t know about the brand until I was given a chance to try their star products! In particular, I’ve tried the Folligen Shampoo, the Folligen Scaler and the Folligen Easy Swab to rid of my flaky scalp problem.

Your ideal skin attainable with cosmetic lasers at Astique, The Aesthetic Clinic: Review

Acne, pigmentation and scarring have always been my main skin concerns since I was a teenager. It seems like my skin is stuck with pimples and scarring for the rest of my life until I discovered the wonders of facial aesthetic treatments.

With the beauty scene so dynamic and ever-changing, coupled with innovative technology, facial aesthetic treatments are increasingly popular not just among ladies but even the men too. I used to naively think that such treatments are invasive, similar to getting plastic surgery, but the wonders of laser treatments have proved me otherwise. My trip to Astique, The Aesthetic Clinic has showed me how I can achieve clearer skin without any downtime and it completely changed my view on aesthetic treatments!

Being my first proper long-term treatment from an aesthetic clinic, I was of course nervous as to what my doctor would comment on my really terrible skin (well, the photos will show later). Fortunately, Dr. Ng was really nice and helpful in understanding my concerns and my acne history. I must say I had quite an informative and engaging conversation prior to my treatment.

Mon Guerlain – a tribute to strong, free and sensual feminity, inspired by Angelina Jolie: Review

My invisible tattoo, my fragrance, Mon Guerlain.

Mon Guerlain, the House’s new fragrance, is created as a tribute to today’s femininity – a strong, free and sensual femininity, as inspired by Hollywood star, Angelina Jolie. The emotions and dreams that embody modern femininity have all been captured in this bottle by Thierry Wasser, in-house perfumer of Guerlain.

The fresh oriental fragrance is put together by a medley of exceptional raw materials from all over the world, including Carla Lavender from Provence, Sambac Jasmine from India, Album Sandalwood from Australia and Vanilla Tahitensis from Papua New Guinea. It’s a pretty interesting blend of ingredients, I must say, made much for the everyday working women.
