Shopping with Pepperkoko

I am a super lazy person that prefers online shopping rather than shopping in the malls so finding the right website to buy my clothes from is really important for me!

Pepperkoko is an online store that sells almost everything you need to dress up from a casual day out to even wedding events! What I love about them is their sizes range from XS to 4L sizes! Not only do they have a variety of sizes, they also sell a variety of clothes which consists of lingeries and kids wear!  😉

Seoul Part one with Cinderella plastic surgery (Before surgery)

HELLO THERE SEOUL!

Its my first visit to Korea and I finally get to experience the culture there after watching countless of Korean drama and imagining the places in my head! Was hoping that I would bump into a Kpop idol, but sadly I didn’t met any :(

The main point of this trip to Korea was to get my eyelid done at Cinderella Plastic surgery! So, for this post, I will be posting about my experience with them before I get my surgery done!

Facial with Fresver

Had been so busy with life lately and haven’t really got the time to pamper myself! I seldom get the chance to do facial due to my busy schedules and not knowing where to get my facial done at! Found out about Fresver recently and decided to give it a try! So heading to my review now!

Fresver Beauty is a established company with over 29 years of history and they focuses on bringing customers the latest technology and best products sourced from around the world! On top of that, they also bring in their own line of skincare products from Spain; and are the exclusive distributor for S+ products in Singapore!!

A skin analysis check was done to recommend me a facial treatment that is suitable for me! I have an issue of slightly clogged pores so I was recommended the oxygenesis 3 in 1 facial therapy! The therapist was very knowledgeable in the products used and I was explained clearly of what are the steps she is giving me to treat my skin problems.

For Oxygenesis, it uses a personalized and single-use capsugen made of natural active ingredients to gentle exfoliate dead skin cells, pores are decongested and cleaned thoroughly and at the same time, the capsugen helps to infuse a specialized treatment gel for intensive skin brightening and moisture or anti-aging and moisture. There were 2 types of gel but I was recommend the Revive one that is supposed to help cell repair since my skin was quite dull and weakened.

 First step was giving me a head massage to fully relax myself before the beautician start to double cleanse my skin to prepare for the facial! Woooo I love it the best, although it was a short and simple massage but it was good and it felt really relaxing.

My skin was double cleansed to make sure that all the make up was removed and skin is clear to start the facial treatment.

Next was the Oxygenesis 3 in 1 therapy which is where all the magic begins! I hear from them that this is the latest and most advanced machine that even celebrities do so I felt extremely lucky and pampered to be able to try it!

First, they applied the gel which came is a personalized packet so it was extremely hygienic and and FRESH! After which, they used the machine to go over. It felt slightly pricky because my skin was dry, but overall it was just like vibration – not painful at all!

Next is Oxygenesis 3 in 1 therapy

Ultrasound waves penetrate deep below the surface of the skin.
The vibration of the ultrasound increases the permeability of the stratum corneum resulting in an increased penetration of ingredients.
Results:
-Improves moisture retention
-Reduces appearance of enlarged pores
-Relieves puffiness around eyes
-Improves absorption of active ingredients
-Improves cellular metabolism
There was a little vibration through the ultrasound machine but it was not painful at all!

The effect of capsugen + gel generates CO2 micro bubbles and stimulates skin to respond naturally by sending oxygen-rich blood to the area. This accelerates skin cell metabolism and aids absorption of active ingredients.

Was given a mirror to see the difference right after the first step and I was really amazed! There was such a big difference in my skin just after the first step! My skin felt so smooth and it was also so much fairer and brighter!

 After the machine treat, I was pampered with a relaxing face and shoulder massage. My therapist was super skillful and it was so comfortable I actually fell asleep! Massaging really helps all the goodness of the gel absorb into my skin and further enhances the effects of the treatment.

IMG_4452IMG_4463Lastly, the treatment ended with a soothing mask!

Verdict: I AM LOVING IT SO MUCH, I can hardly see my pores and my face looks more glowing and radiant after the facial! My face feels like tofu and there is barely any blackheads seen as compared previously before the facial treatment.

Price is currently $69 Nett for Oxygenesis Facial with FOC Travel Kit and it’s valid only for one month from date of my blog post!

SKII #Change Destiny

Some may regard that being uncertain about the events of their lives are nerve-racking, so they allow society to dictate how their lives should be. More often than not, we follow a predetermined journey in life. We envy the ones that chose to live life to the fullest; an ineffable life. The society’s judgment marked an epoch whereby life’s greatest achievement is to settle in with a good family, decent pay check and have kids. What happened to the dreams that we dreamt of when we were young? Our ambitions to be something much greater, to pursue what we really love.

It is now the norm to forgo your dreams and be contented with what life presents to you. We aren’t willing to step out of our comfort zone, and pursue our childhood dreams. Have you ever had moments whereby you thought to yourself, “If only I made different choices back then, how different would life be?” Don’t let societal judgment dictate your journey, own your life. SKII #ChangeDestiny is a campaign that turns its attention to another issue in its mission to empower women to take control of their future and achieve their aspirations.

The screenshot below, is a video which is uploaded on YouTube (click for link) for this year’s SKII campaign which best represents the objectification of women all over the world.

SKII #ChangeDestiny aims to reduce the stigma against single women. Everybody deserves to find true love, but only at the right time and not under the pressure of societal expectations.

#ChangeDestiny –which is deeply rooted in SK-II’s product truth – is hopefully the beginning of a positive movement to inspire women around the world

To further empower women to transform their skin destiny, SK-II has also launched the first-in-the-world Skin DNA Concierge in Japan, Korea, Hong Kong and Taiwan.

Commercial motives aside, the pressure China’s unmarried women suffer is real. The difference in perception of prime age in China is the biggest among countries like Japan, Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, United States, United Kingdom and Australia surveyed at 7 years. People in China have the tendency to think that men’s prime age is 34 when they have achieved a good career whilst Women’s prime age is 27 when they are most physically attractive. The pressure, coming from both societal and familial, comes from all angles. Parents that was from a different generation don’t have the conception of waiting for ‘the right one’. By the China central Government, a one-child policy was in the late 1970s and early 80s, which was to limit the great majority of family units in the country to one child each. It was to reduce the growth rate of China’s enormous population. More than half of Chinese women under 30 (55%) state that the expectations of their parents are the biggest source for their age-related anxiety.

For Japan, the prime age for men and women is defined as “when they are most physically attractive” with 41% of men and 56% for women putting this as the #1 defining factor of prime age

Among the countries surveyed, Japan and Korea are the most extreme countries where women feel unhappy about getting older— as high as 59% of women in Japan and 51% of women in Korea feel unhappy about getting older. While single women in China and Korea felt the most pressure to get married which can be as high as 60% of single women in China and 52% of single women in Korea.

1 out of 3 women in Asia feel that there’s a pre-decided timeline for how to live your life and when to do things (marriage, career, education, kids etc) that they are expected to follow. #ChangedDestiny is here to show the world that destiny is not a matter of chance, but a matter of choice. So, let go of what others want you to be because change is in all of us and the only person you can become is the person you decide to be.
