Review – Svenson

Hello again!

Attended the Svenson Hair Enrichment Workshop a few weeks ago and was really pleased to know more about how to tackle hair and scalp problems. Thank you for sharing such insightful information with me, Svenson! There was a complimentary hair scalp analysis and also a 5 course meal c/o Monochrome Bistro for us bloggers. The fish and tiramisu were my favourites! Too bad I didn’t managed to take a photo of the tiramisu.

ABOUT SVENSON

SVENSON is a leading brand of solutions for hair and scalp problems using the most advanced technologies. With over 40 years of trichological expertise and knowledge, Svenson offers scientific diagnosis and customized and effective solutions to almost all hair problems.

Operating a global network of hair centers today, there are 54 branches across Asia region, including China, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Taiwan, Korea, Indonesia, Brunei, Thailand, and of course, Singapore.

Today, they are proud to present its three best-selling hair care treatments: Folligro, Micro-Transdermal Therapy (MTT) and PLGA Total Solution.

1. FOLLIGRO

The latest treatment to be introduced, Folligro, delivers a potent mix of vital oxygen and rich nutrients deep into the roots and stimulates greater cell regeneration and collagen production for significant results.

Making use of Radio Frequency (RF) to promote regeneration of tissues and hair growth, the energy is fractionally delivered in micron spots into the dermal layers of the skin via 22 uniquely-designed gold conductive pins.

The Folligro treatment takes about 45 minutes and is pain-free. The scalp is first cleansed and hair is blown dry. An Amino Peptide Solution is then applied directly on one section of the scalp, followed by immediate application of RF energy over the same section. This is repeated in sections all over the crown area before a scalp massage is performed to end the treatment.

2. MICRO-TRANSDERMAL THERAPY (MTT)

Using a handheld micro-needle roller device with a wheel attached to the handle, the Micro- Transdermal Therapy (MTT) treatment works by triggering the production of human growth factor.

Outfitted with a total of 540 micro-needles, each of varying lengths from 0.2mm to 2.0mm, the device is rolled over the skin, causing the needles to press against the scalp tissue, resulting in minor surface wounds. The body must then work to produce new skin in the area of the wound and releases the human growth hormone, collagen and other chemicals to assist with this process.

In addition, the treatment also creates a new transcellular route (microchannel) for the delivery of small doses of active ingredients of different medications, such as the Svenson MPC Solution, to enter deeper tissues.

This efficacious solution contains vitamins, amino acids, co-enzymes, minerals, hyaluronic acid, gluthathione and copper tripeptides that stimulate the growth of epitelial cells of hair bulb, inhibits catagen phase and stimulates anagen phase (new growth).

This treatment is effective for common male and female baldness problems, such as male front- parietal alopecia, diffused hair loss and post-pregnancy alopecia.

3. PLGA TOTAL SOLUTION

Svenson’s PLGA Total Solution is a breakthrough Do-It-Yourself home treatment that combines remarkable properties of the rare Loquat leaf and nanotechnology to produce noticeably thicker, fuller looking hair for those suffering from thinning hair.

The key active compound extracted from the Loquat leaf is Corosolic acid, traditionally used as a herbal medicine. This herbal extract encourages better blood circulation and manages testosterone level, often the primary cause of hair loss.

To be applied daily after hair wash using a light head massage method on problem areas, clients can expect to see a gradual increase in fine, thin and thick hair growth at alopecia neurotic areas from the convenient PLGA Total Solution home treatment, from as early as two months after starting. A typical complete treatment process will take six months of consistent application.

After the presentation of the products, we were introduced to the 5-step massage directed by the therapist which we all tried on ourselves at the same time. Having previously taken a short course under Kimage training school, I have learnt to do head massages but this was pretty different. I will definitely use this instead because it requires lesser strength and seems effective.

PROFESSIONAL HAIR AND SCALP CARE TIPS FROM SVENSON

  • Shampoo daily, or twice daily, using the appropriate shampoo for your hair and scalp type
  • When applying styling products, avoid getting them on the scalp
  • When blow-drying, avoid direct strong heat and keep the blow-dryer moving
  • Brush or comb hair gently especially when wet
  • Practice daily scalp massage − recommended to use Svenson’s NEW 5-Step Head Massage (as detailed below)

HOW TO SPOT HAIR LOSS

  • Significantly more hair falls during combing, brushing and shampooing
  • Scalp feels sensitive; inflammation (redness), prone to getting itchy, oily and scaly
  • Frontal hairline starts to recede with more small “baby” hair appearing
  • Overall hair becoming more limp and lacks body or volume
  • Hair texture becomes finer and hair growth appears slower

Each of us were kindly given some sample products to bring home. I started using the products the very next day and to my delight, the volumizing shampoo was too good to be true. I have to say it restored my crowning glory! More on the shampoo will be shared later in the post.

BIO-PROTEIN PRE-SHAMPOO TREATMENT

DSC05950 DSC05952 DSC05953 DSC05954DSC05961

The treatment was to be applied before shampooing and I quite like that the treatment soften my scalp and hair. I could feel it was easier to detangle my hair afterwards. I like that the treatment was not harsh and did not cause any burning sensation at all. Usually I am quite afraid of treatment solutions due to the harsh ingredients included. However, for this range, I quite like it!

VOLUMIZING SHAMPOO

DSC05955DSC05956DSC05963

When I first applied this product on to my hair I was shocked at how cleanse my scalp was! I love the minty cooling feel after shampooing my hair with this. Felt instantly refreshed afterwards. I also felt my hair was more volumized overall and not as flat as it was usually even after a whole day of activities. I checked with my hairstylist when I went back to cut my hair and she complimented that my hair was softer and less oilier as before which is a good thing!

PLGA TOTAL SOLUTIONS

DSC05957 DSC05958 DSC05960 DSC05970 DSC05972

The reviews of this product is incredible. Given only a 10 day sample, I was able to tell that I faced lesser hair drop during this period. There was lesser hair clogged in the sink after a shower. If you are interested to find out more about this product, you could read up on the properties and benefits above. I personally found this product to be quite precious since it had a lifespan of only 10 days! I had to make sure I finished within 10 days.

I hope this post helped you in discovering more about Svenson and its latest technology. Thank you for reading and stay tune for more beauty reviews xx

TOPPIK Hair Building Fibers instantly give you the appearance of thicker, fuller hair. By applying the fibers onto dry, thinning hair areas, they blend undetectably into existing hair.

TOPPIK Hair Building Fibers work for all types and textures of hair, and are suitable for both men and women. 

How does it work?

TOPPIK Hair Building Fibers help increase thickness and fullness to hair.

What Do Asian Women Really Want? By Chez Vous Hair

Oh hi hi! I think because of my work, I have turned lazy and rarely dress up or even tidy up. However recently, I finally got moving and visited my favourite hair salon – Chez Vous hair.

I went to them for HELP this time because my hair was in desperate need of treatment and a new cut & color and that’s where they introduced me their new services for Asian women!

Being Singapore’s most innovative hair salon, Chez Vous teams up with professional hair brand Goldwell to create three unique new services to help Asian women achieve their ultimate dream tresses!  The three groundbreaking services,  #GlassHair, #RightColourMatters and #FakeAsh was created so that Asian women can finally achieve their dream, Instagram-worthy hair and discover the hair colour that truly suits their unique skin tone, facial features and shape.

Basically Asian women have three main issues when it comes to hair, allow me to diagnose the issues one by one.

  • The Problem: Choosing a hair colour is not easy for Asians. Most online beauty guides and techniques are not applicable as they focus on Caucasians and Hispanics and end up confusing or even misleading Asian women into selecting hair colours based on trends, instead of what enhances their look best.

The Solution: #RightColourMatters Diagnosis. A simple yet accurate methodology created to determine the right hair colour for each and every Asian woman — it assesses how our skin and facial imperfections alter with different hair undertones and recommends corrective hair colours that will best complement our features.

  • The Problem: S.E. Asia’s sweltering heat and humid climate causes our hair to be unruly, unmanageable and frizzy.

The Solution: #GlassHair. Inspired by the famous Korean trend of achieving flawless and smooth “glass skin”, a programme (inclusive of a treatment and Goldwell Kerasilk premium homecare) was developed to achieve the same effect for your hair. The result: hair with long-lasting, heat-activated glass-like smoothness.

  • The Problem: Ashy and dusty hair is trending among Asian women in 2018. But with more than two rounds of pre-lightening required to achieve these shades, they are not confident of achieving the look without severely damaging their hair.

The Solution: #FakeAsh Colour Service. A brand new approach to hair colouring, #FakeAsh uses just one session of pre-lightening and combines two to three “easily achievable” hair colours to create an optical illusion of Instagram-worthy ash tones. This service is designed with Asians’ natural hair in mind.

I tried out the #RightColourMatters Diagnosis and here are my thoughts about it. Honestly I have always admired fair girls who can pull off black hair and never knew why I couldn’t! I also realised I couldn’t pull off certain colours too (besides black). For people who like trying colours (I have tried purple, blue, pink, green, grey, ash, blonde etc. just to name a few), you might notice some colours look better on you and some don’t.  Someone with an equally fair skin tone could look good with black but not me as our skin tone is still slightly different. I was given various color charts to play with and at the end of the session, I understood blue and green colours were more suitable for my skin tone. This is equally true for my choice of colours for my wardrobe.  A lighter blue made my face look sharper, and more radiant as compared to a darker blue. However as I am still young, a sharper look would be more ideal but if the customer is an older lady, red which gives a more plumped up look would probably be more suitable.

Next, I tried the #GlassHair treatment. I was asked to leave it on for at least 48 hours. The end result is glossy and softer hair. It is so much so much easier to manage now. Drying time is also much shorter.  As usual, a treatment isn’t complete without Goldwell Kerasilk premium homecare! The 4-step DIY home practice is 1. Shampoo 2. Condition 3. Mask 4. Control. This comes with all #GlassHair treatments.

Oh and I almost forgot. Besides all these services, we need a hair cut that complements your face shape. I mostly walk out of salons regretting my hair cut but this time, I loved it! Victor is really talented I must say! He gave me shorter hair as requested but when I wanted to go shorter he kindly advised me not to because any shorter would curl at the ends and I would have trouble with styling it! He also taught me that layering at the ends would make my hair look frizzy hence he only layered slightly at the top to give my hair volume.

Here are the immediate results! Hubby commented he loves how classy and soft my hair is as compared to all the previous dye jobs I had! Teehee styling is also much easier because its so soft. All I need to do is blow dry and use a curling tong to curl the ends slightly. This can be done in 10 mins unlike the past when I needed at least 30 mins.

If you wish to try, you might be interested in the #RightColorMattersDiagnosis and #GlassHair promotions.

Taobao Women’s Day Sale from 7-9 March 2018!

In conjunction with Women’s Day, Taobao is having a Women’s Day sale this 7 to 9 March 2018! Stay tune to the end of the post for a special promotion! I recently got to try some skincare beauty tools from one of their merchants, Momoup and boy am I in love. These skincare tools are must-haves for anyone who hates wastage of products and loves to travel. They have a wide range of beauty tools available however as I do not want this post to be too draggy and the some products are really quite straightforward, I shall just share with you a few star favourites.

First up, would be the travel friendly box of Syringe Cosmetic Tubes. Perfect for traveling, the box comes equipped with four individual tubes.

comes with four individual syringes!

Tried and tested, they are leak proof, reusable and best of all compact and portable. How to use? Check out my usage directions below:

Step 1 – Remove leak-proof silicon cap
Step 2 – Place syringe directly into the bottle and pull the plunger gently to extract the product. For slimmer or longer bottles, attach needle tip to syringe
Step 3 – Turn plunger in anti-clockwise direction to detach it and fasten the syringe by attaching the silicon cap

Step 4 – After usage, clean the syringe with the brush provided

This beauty tool is suitable for storing serum, toner, moisturiser and liquid foundation.

The next interesting beauty tool would be the Foaming Bottle with Massaging Brush.

This beauty tool comes with a soft foaming brush applicator that helps to massage the skin, removes impurities and cleanses pores.

The brush can also be removed easily for cleaning and comes with a lock to prevent leakage during travel. Quick tip: only use cleanser which is soluble for best foaming effect to prevent blockage of the pump.

Follow below for the usage directions:

Step 1 – Pour Cleanser into bottle
Step 2 – Pour water into bottle; water to cleanser ratio should be 2:1. Make sure to leave ample space for mixing
Step 3 – Mix the solution thoroughly by gently shaking the bottle. Press the pump to release foam
Step 4 – Massage your face with the silicon brush in upward circular motion

Last but not least, there’s the Makeup Brush Dry Clean Sponge!

Makeup enthusiasts would know how troublesome it is to clean and dry brushes. The process of cleaning brushes is quite a time-waster. This product makes cleaning brushes a breeze as it is effective and requires no drying time!

The cover is made of tin, which is durable and protects the sponges. I love that its compact design is great for travelling. Each set comes with 2 sets of sponges.

Black portion is made of activated carbon filter sponge for easy cleaning and removing of unwanted residue while the white portion can be used to tidy the brush.

Find out the usage directions below:

Step 1 – No water or cleaning agent required
Step 2 – Simply swipe the brush against the black sponge 3 to 5 times
See! It really cleans. All the residue is left on the sponge.
Step 3 – Tidy the brush using the white sponge

Of course, these are not the only products Momoup has! They have other beauty tools available which I have not mentioned. Usage is pretty straightforward hence I did not elaborate much on them.

Visit HERE for more great deals and remember to stay tune to their GREAT Taobao Women’s Day sale this 7-9 March 2018! 女王 Special: from 7th – 9th March 2018 get 5%, 10% or 25% off when you buy 3,5 or 7 momoup products respectively. So hurry!

Waking Up With Glow, ASTALIFT In-Focus Collective Serum Review

So what really makes my skin glow? I believe most of you are tired of hearing skincare reviews as they all sound the same BUT trust me when I say, this post will reveal to you a revolutionary serum that is probably one of the best in the market, well at least for me that is.

I was hesitant when I first heard of ASTALIFT but decided to give it a try anyway and to my pleasant surprise, their products actually worked well for my skin. I found out during my consultation that all along I have been missing one step in my skincare regime which shockingly to say, is a serum! So all along my skincare regime which comprises of Cleanser, Toner and Moisturiser, Sunblock daily isn’t enough. According to the trainer, I should add Serum before Moisturiser to allow better penetration of the nutrients from the product while Moisturiser acts as a protective layer to hydrate your skin.

Most people do not know this but ASTALIFT is developed by FUJIFILM. FUJIFILM Singapore, a wholly-owned subsidiary of FUJIFILM Corporation, in Japan, is best known for all FUJIFILM products such as photo imaging and digital products, data storage media, graphic arts, medical and life science products for more than 20 years in Singapore.

Applying its propriety knowledge of nanotechnology for exposing and colour developing in film making, FUJIFILM created ASTALIFT, an award-winning brand that offers carefully-researched skincare and supplement products with proven efficacy.

I recently visited the newly opened third and largest boutique  in NEX, the largest mall in the Northeast region of Singapore. Spanning 688 square feet, this shop features the brand’s signature red hue to signify the vibrancy and richness of ASTALIFT.

A highlight of this retail outlet includes a skin analyser machine, where customers’ skin condition is analysed, so that suitable products can be recommended accordingly. I was fortunate enough to be given a try at their skin analyser during their roadshow. It was truly an educational experience where I got to learnt my skin’s age, and also the areas my skin was lacking in. My skin was severely lacking in hydration and drowning in oiliness. I was recommended a simple skincare regime to follow by the trainer.

Everyone listening attentively to Jason as he gave us the skincare tips.
The skin analyzer
Here’s a pic with the skin analyser!
Results of the skin analysis will be shown on the TV
They have whitening drinks too!

Astalift In-Focus Cellactive Serum

One of the products recommended to me during the analysis was the NEW ASTALIFT In-Focus Cellactive Serum.  This serum contains Nano-Astaxanthin CP+ for stem cell anti-oxidation protection and Boswellia Serrata for existing stem cells activation. Stem Cells are re-energised to combat skin ageing like wrinkles and loss of elasticity while improving skin tone, radiance and softness. Stem Cells are additionally protected from stresses that cause skin damage. This results in delayed ageing and restoration of skin elasticity and youth through Stem Cell Rejuvenation.

ASTALIFT White Perfect Clear UV Solution SPF50+ PA+++

The serum’s texture was an intriguing film-like orangey gel texture . The Ion Sensing Technology allows immediate penetration of serum as it glides on the skin. Skin feels fresher and well-protected with a lightweight film-like texture over my face.  The therapeutic scent of Bergamot, Rose, Jasmine & Sandalwood lifted my moods instantly preparing me for a good night’s sleep. Plus, I love that it comes with a hygienic pump mechanism.

The travel-friendly sized bottle is so lightweight making it perfect to bring around.
After absorption, skin is hydrated and has a watery film-like texture.

Here’s my before and after pictures:

Skin is more hydrated and lines, pores, pimples are lesser.

comes in a hygienic pump mechanism

In addition to the In-Focus Cellactive Serum, the trainer also mentioned two other products to use in conjunction with the serum as a daily beauty regime. The two other products are the Jelly Aquarysta and Perfect UV Clear Solution SPF50P PA++++.

ASTALIFT Jelly Aquarysta

ASTALIFT Jelly Aquarysta is their signature product. This is a jelly-type beauty essence from their aging range. The product contains “human-type nano acyl ceramide”, moisturizing ingredient stably dispersed at the world’s smallest 20nm-level, in addition to proprietary moisturizing ingredient “human-type nano ceramide”, thereby enhancing moisturizing function that moisturizes every corner of skin. This product is used straight after cleansing to enhance absorption of my other products, such as the In-Focus Cellactive Serum.

ASTALIFT Perfect UV

The most essential skincare step for me would be sufficient sun protection and what better way to achieve that is to apply loads of sunblock!  Under the ASTALIFT White skincare series, this tube offers enhanced UV protection with signature ingredients to promote smoother, brighter-looking skin.

White Perfect Clear UV Solution is a multi-functional beauty essence and make-up base offering five-way protection against the sun. Besides containing D-UV Guard, the proprietary UV protecting agent that offers advanced UV protection against Deep UVA to prevent “incidental sunburn”, the new product also features the UV Action Capsule that bursts when exposed to UV rays to release a generous amount of beauty ingredients including the Vitamin C derivative.

It also has a sensor cap which changes colour to purple when it is exposed to deep UVA, to alert me that it is time to top up my sunblock. It can be applied on top of my makeup too, without worries of smudging.

Besides the range of skincare products, they have makeup too also! Which received recognition from CLEO and Her World beauty awards!

FUJIFILM’s strengths lies in image analyzing technologies, gleaned from its vast experience in the photogenic and medical fields, have also been used in skin tone reproduction technology to enhance one’s looks in the cosmetics field.

ESPECIALLY FOR YOU!

Travel Journey With SG BusLeh App!

As we all know, the MRT’s are not very reliable due to the breakdowns and now most Singaporeans like myself are relying more on buses which is why SGBusLeh app comes in handy!

image credits: http://www.todayonline.com/sites/default/files/styles/new_app_article_detail/public/photos/43_images/tdymrt0707webr.jpg?itok=gFUBl3N1

I believe for most singaporeans we have more or less ran after a bus before and of course that includes myself! Previously when I used to take the bus to work, I would either miss the bus, or have to wait for a long time before the buses arrive and worse, I remember chasing after buses!

image credits: http://aidiamarketing.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/running-after-bus.jpg

Good news for those who hate chasing, missing or waiting for buses as the SG BusLeh app is here to rid us of the agony.

double deck or bendy

Developed by local mobile app development consultancy, Originally US, who’s one of the top mobile app developer in Singapore which specializes in designing and developing amazing mobile apps that look and feel great, this app is going to be one of the highly used apps I believe!

Firstly, it is Free Of Charge (FOC) so it doesn’t keep you from downloading it for free and trying it out to see if it works for you.

Photo 21-12-17, 7 11 16 PM

You don’t have to sign up an account to use it which I like because most apps these days require you to sign up before you can start using the app.

And not to mention the app really stands out when I am using my phone because the app is RED in color.

Very clear labelling of bus stops so you know exactly which bus stop are they referring to and which bus stop are you at. You will never need to ask strangers awkwardly which bus you got to take to arrive at your destinations.

Photo 21-12-17, 7 04 04 PM

It tells you which buses each bus stop has, the exact waiting time of each bus and which buses are handicap friendly. It also indicates if the arriving buses are double deck or bendy plus, LOST? You can search for nearby buses and bus stops.

Photo 21-12-17, 7 03 56 PM

It brings on the singlish jokes while you can ‘stalk’ physical location of upcoming buses on a map (instead of relying on just bus timing).

Oh and you can tap your EZ-Link card to check balance using SG BusLeh (on supported devices) so you no longer need to awkwardly  exchange coins with strangers to take the buses.

If you are on a bus, Busleh can notify you when your are arriving at your destination stop so you can inform your friends of your Estimated Time Of Arrival (ETA).

Last but not least, they have SMRT train timings too so that you can organize your trip better if you need to change to trains during your journey. Oh and even better for NTU & NUS students because they have your internal bus timings available too but sadly it is currently ONLY available on Android. Hopefully they release it on iPhones soon!

Honestly everyone should get this app because it is useful for commuters like us who hate running after buses. You can download this amazing app over at google play store or Apple store!

ACHIEVE A MORE BEAUTIFUL YOU THIS CHRISTMAS WITH OSIM UGEM 2 & USCALP!

As the festive period is approaching, I am sure everyone wants to look beautiful and that includes me too! Wish to achieve a v-shaped face, & better hair growth this Christmas? I have something to share with you which make perfect gifts for your love ones too!

Recently I got to try OSIM’s latest Beauty Massager uGem 2 & Salon-style Scalp Massager, uScalp and I really love the effects of the massagers which is why I chose to share with you guys!

Besides the beauty and health benefits which I will share later, the best thing I love about the massagers would be how lightweight and portable they are. The design is also sleek and compact making it ideal for travel and bringing them everywhere. Plus they are so affordable, going at only $99 each (UP $149) making them ideal and thoughtful gifts for your loved ones (family, colleagues, friends) or vain girlfriends.

Comes with a battery too.

So back to the wonderful massage functions of this handy beauty device that will help bring out a sculpted v-shaped face and a gorgeous glow, you can get a firmer v-shaped face in just 5-10mins a day with this massager. Use it daily with your favourite moisturiser or cream before bedtime and you will no longer feel inferior of your round face or saggy skin! You can stop standing behind your friends when taking photos. Beauty apps to edit and “slim” your face in the photos are also not needed anymore!

What I love about it is that it is perfect for achieving the V-shaped face any girl would die for without surgery. You can get rid of the water retention and puffy face you have in the morning. Eye bags are visibly reduced and wrinkles & fine lines are smoothened out too! Best of all, it relieves headaches and fights signs of aging: sagging face, water retention, droopy eyes or dark circles, dull skin complexion. To find out more about the benefits, you can check out their Christmas brochure!

Use it for your necklines too.

Besides the face, I believe girls are also concerned about their hair! Say yes to beautiful and shinier air with uScalp. Treat your love ones who take care of their luscious locks to a salon-style scalp massage anytime. With a multi-dimensional scrubbing action, it mimics the fingers of a hair professional to enhance blood circulation – great for achieving healthy & beautiful hair. The scalp massage that you look forward to at the salon can now be experienced at the comfort of your home. Besides if you have hair problems like thinning hair or hair loss, this is definitely for you. I passed it to my dad who is experiencing hair loss and he swears by it. Yes, you can also get this for men! Not only does it increase circulation to promote hair growth, it strengthens hair roots for healthier hair and relieves stress, tension & headache relaxing the mind & body and improving sleep quality. To find out more about the benefits, you can check out their Christmas brochure!

Due to my hectic lifestyle and being in the F&B line, it is important to get frequent massages as I tend to return home with aching legs and body. The health benefits of a massage are amazing and massage is a way to pamper yourself if you do not have time to head to the salon or spa.

IMG_6417
Besides massaging the hair, you can also massage your neck and back.

If say beauty gadgets aren’t ideal for a certain loved one, say for example you don’t think your parents would require them, you can still check out other products from OSIM as I know I can always count on OSIM for the perfect gift. Recently, I got to try out the uJolly and uStiletto and I passed these massagers to my parents as I think they would love them and the best part, I can always get to use it whenever I feel like it since I stay with my parents.

With that said, this is the end of my review. Hope this helps and merry christmas in advance!

Relax Ready With OSIM uJolly today!

After a long day at work, how would you choose to relax? For me, I turn to OSIM uJolly for a relaxing massage session.

Portability and Flexibility

A new generation full back massager, what I love is its flexibility! Any chair can now be a massage chair. It is portable, versatile and can conveniently fit onto most chairs, sofas, loungers and beds to provide one-stop relief for neck, shoulders & back wherever you are.

You can use them in the bedroom;

living room;

study room.

Space-saving

Space-saving is so important to me because in the past I used to procrastinate about getting a back massager as space could be limited back home. However with the portability OSIM uJolly offers, I can even keep it in the cupboard when I wish to make space. It is so lightweight, even I could carry it upstairs and downstairs myself. You could even fit it in the car so you never need to worry about moving house. This is essential because I am looking to relocate pretty soon.

Hi-Tech

OSIM uJolly’s innovative V-Grip Massage Technology is unparalleled. It comes with 2 massage techniques – Shoulder Grip & Lumbar Press delivers a targeted massage for deep tissue relief by loosening stiff & aching muscles.

Affordable pricing

Oh wait, do you know it is affordable too? Only $449 (U.P. $499) or $38 per month with instalment plan! Certainly budget-friendly for the young working adults and new couples. If you are looking for a full massage you might wish to combine it with a leg massager like their newly launched OSIM uStiletto. You may wish to check out my review HERE.

Modern Designed

Being someone who’s very much into fashion, I am in love with the  design. I chose OSIM uJolly in the colour, Merry Red but it also comes in Happy Yellow! This is one modern design for any modern home.

Ideal Gift

Affordable,  portable and beneficial to the health, OSIM uJolly makes the best gift for your loved ones (family, friends and colleagues). Is your partner’s birthday coming up? This would be the ultimate gift for him/her. I gifted my parents with OSIM uJolly because I feel they need it more than I do and I could kill two birds with one stone, as I can even use it too! This would also make the perfect Christmas gift as well!

Being a very reliable brand, OSIM has always been my number 1 choice for gifts. I literally grew up with OSIM as my family has purchased 2 generations of the OSIM massage chairs.

I highly recommend a weekly massage if possible. It is never too late to start taking care of your health. Health is gold and regular massages would aid in blood circulation hence improving our overall health. Massage is well received by all ages whether you are young or old. If you are like me, facing daily stress from work and sitting long hours at the office, you can look forward to relaxing on the uJolly after a long day at work since we won’t always have the time to head to the spa or massage parlour. I always believe in self love as it can make you feel better overall as a person and it is always better to pamper yourself daily.

You can even share with your boyfriend/husband and family like I did.

Great news for you all!

From now till 31st Dec 2017, enjoy $70 off OSIM uJolly at $429 (UP $499) or $36 per month (based on 12 months instalment) when you pay with DBS/POSB credit, debit or NETS card at any OSIM Outlets today!

IUIGA – A Lifestyle Brand That Celebrates Quality Living

Moving forward to the next chapter in life soon, I am always on the lookout for quality lifestyle products that I can incorporate in my home, or when travel. I used to shop at brick and mortar shops but the thing is, you will need to bring them back home which can be a hassle when you don’t have much space in the car or even take public transport. Everything changed when I chanced upon IUIGA!

IUIGA is a lifestyle brand that celebrates quality living. They aim to deliver quality products without traditional mark-ups. Why pay so much for quality? In traditional retail, a product is marked up 8 to 15 times by the time it reaches you. The product goes through a long process of at least 10 to 20 layers from manufacturers to distribution and finally to the end consumer. The IUIGA team scoured the world to find the best raw materials and manufacturers to offer a wide range of well-designed, functional everyday items at absolutely transparent prices.

The vision is to reveal the true cost of quality and make quality universally accessible so that you can create a better everyday life at home.

You can find out more about us from our app on the Apple app store and Android play store. We have just recently soft launched our website as well https://www.iuiga.com/

 

What I got off the website with just $300 was 2 luggages, one cabin size and another for check in. I also got a sock organiser because I have a silly habit of losing them. The luggages are made from the same manufacturer as Samsonite so you can rest assured on the quality. The sock organiser is so affordable and is the best thing I got off the site I believe because now my helper doesn’t have a problem with finding space to place my socks and there’s no excuses for me not to find them too!

The luggages are really very affordable. I have a thing for luggages because I travel very often and sometimes on budget airlines, you notice your luggages damaging more often than ever because the service crew just throw your luggage. These luggages are so hardy and affordable yet pretty. I feel so good purchasing them. Check out the luggages I got! Go check them out at their website now.
