Achieving Hair Goals with Beijing 101


DSC05550

  I have done a couple of hair and scalp treatments before like those that promises to get rid of the itchiness in my scalp, promote hair growth and also smoothen the hair and yes it does fulfil it’s promise immediately but the day after the treatment, my hair would go back to it’s original shape and texture. It’s quite disappointing especially when the treatments are expensive and I feel like I have wasted my time staying in the salon. Being a working mom, we can be so busy that we might not even have time to eat or sleep and to me, those few hours matter and I believe this is the same with most moms too. Seeing that we are on the same page and do not wish to be time wasters, I want to introduce Beijing 101 hair treatments to you. Since 1974, Beijing 101 has been dedicated to treating common hair issues such as scalp concerns, hair loss, oily scalp, greying hair, premature or excessive white hair and various patterns of hair loss, in more than 60 countries worldwide. All their treatments use premium-grade Chinese herbs that help to solve hair problems in an integrative and harmonious way, which in line with their certified hair consultants and TCM Physicians. Being a first-time customer, I went through a short survey form so that the consultant can narrow down to the hair concerns and decided on the right treatment. I was treated to herbal flower tea with Goji Berries while the consultant brought me through a fuss-free Hair and Scalp analysis where she showed the visible issues with my hair and scalp.

DSC05562I had a bad scare because my scalp is more sensitive than before and my hair was not growing according to the scan. I was so afraid that I rushed to the pharmacy to buy hair supplements and multi vitamins after. She told me the reason for my condition was due to lack of sleep and a good diet. I am certainly guilty of sleeping at 2am and eating all those fried and unhealthy foods. Can you see the flakes surrounding my hair follicles and also the visible redness on the scalp? before

After the scare, I experienced the 101 Signature Meridian Scalp Treatment. A scalp detoxification mask treatment is applied to unclog the pores of any impurities and deep cleansing after that. DSC05575Next, the 101 hair consultant applied the Scalp Strengthening Essence together with a relaxing sea salt neck wrap to soothe the senses and prep for the relaxing head and scalp massage.  DSC05580A stimulating yet soothing 15-minute head massage is done to work the hair-loving ingredients into the follicles. DSC05581To encourage better blood circulation and improve the regeneration of hair growth, the latest Alpha Hair Beam light therapy is used to increase hair density and encourage vital absorption of nutrients into the roots.

When I first heard of 101, I thought the storefront would be more traditional looking because they have been around for many years but the store at Funan is modernized and feels cozy. It has the Korean minimalist vibe with the individual hair stations. You are unable to see the person next to you and everyone has their own privacy despite being in a public space. They also have VIP rooms available. DSC05567 After the treatment, they brought me to do another scan and this time, I was very pleased with the results! My scalp looks cleaner and healthier. after They gave me some home-care products to try and these are the BEST shampoo and treatments I have gotten from a treatment-based salon. The consultant told me I will love the Essence – Vitalizing Gliss and true enough I did! The shampoo is not overpowering and the Essence is rich enough to smooth my hair ends without being too heavy. Usually the products from treatment-based salons would leave my hair very dry after using their products. The smell isn’t overpowering and it has a slight herbal smell which I like.  DSC05597The best part? My hair stayed as soft and clean for at least 2 weeks. You have to try their treatments to believe it. The lovely team at Beijing 101 is giving to my readers a trial and you can redeem it here: https://beijing101hair.com/samplestoreexclusiveSydney. For only $40, you will experience the Intensive Scalp Cleansing Treatment and bring home a hair care kit and a pair of movie tickets that is worth $616 in total!

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.

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.

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.
