Oops my bad! Here’s another super late post again!

filorga

Long ago, I’ve received 4 anti-aging skincare products by Laboratoires FILORGA Paris and they are Hydra-Filler, Meso-Mask, Sleep And Peel and Cleansing Foam (I gave away before blogging this post). Many thanks to Chantana who helped to obtain these products for me.

I kept the products in a large storage box (with other cosmetics products), and I totally forgot about it after that.

Laboratoires FILORGA Paris has a history of more than 30 years with 1.5 millions patients treated in 54 countries. It is claimed to be one of the world’s leaders in global anti-aging therapy including developing, manufacturing and distributing anti-wrinkle dermal filling products, mesotherapy injections and medical peelings. Laboratoires FILORGA Paris is positioned as the only French range of dermo-cosmetic products originating directly from aesthetical medicine.

The common characteristic of the range are hyaluronic acid and NCTF®, active ingredients identical to those injected products. NCTF® contains 53 ingredients including amino acids, vitamins, co-enzymes, minerals and nucleic acids.

[Advertorial] Bio-essence 24K Bio-Gold Water & 24K Bio-Gold Platinum Dual Cream

 

Recently, I’ve received 2 new Bio-essence products – 24K Bio-Gold Water and 24K Bio-Gold Platinum Dual Cream. Both products are targeted for early 20s to mid 30s age group to help fight premature aging. I’m trying Bio-essence products for the first time.

24K Gold is the softest and most malleable metal, thus it can make into flakes form. It is claimed that once the flakes are absorbed by the skin, it releases active gold ions rich in trace minerals which promotes blood and oxygen circulation and thus improves skin’s metabolism. This also stimulates the production of collagen and elastin present in skin, increases skin’s collagen fibers and keeps skin firm and youthful.

24K Bio-Gold Water, priced at S$45 for 150g, is a lightweight fluid essence that contains high purity gold flakes.

The essence feels as light as water. It contains tiny 24k gold flakes which is said to promote blood and oxygen circulation. This results a better skin metabolism. I’m a great believer that a good skin metabolism equals to a healthy youthful-looking skin.

This essence contains antioxidants that may combat free radicals and slow down visible signs of aging.

The lightweight texture penetrates easily into the skin. It doesn’t give a stickiness feeling upon full absorption. I will use this essence after toner and before other serums and moisturizer.

24K Bio-Gold Platinum Dual Cream, packed with a day and a night creams, is formulated with antioxidants that is said to fight free radicals and slow down visible signs of aging.

For the day regimen, I will use the Nano Bio-Platinum Day Cream that contains SPF25 to prevent UV rays damage. The day cream has a much lighter texture and doesn’t leave a greasy residue upon absorption.

For the day regimen, I will use 24K Bio-Gold Night Cream that contains antioxidants to fights free radicals and combat premature aging. It has a richer creamy texture but it feels pretty comfortable on the skin. Both day and night creams have a mild fragrance scent.

24K Bio-Gold Platinum Dual Cream is priced at S$42 for 40g.

24K Bio-Gold Water and 24K Bio-Gold Platinum Dual Cream is a complementary duo to be used in our skincare regimen (on face and neck) :

  • Day: use 24K Bio-Gold Water first then follow by Bio-Platinum Day Cream SPF 25 PA+++
  • Night: use 24K Bio-Gold Water first then follow by 24K Bio-Gold Night Cream
  • Neck care is as important as facial care as neck will also reveal signs of aging

A while ago, I was privately invited to preview a new skincare brand – IOMA Paris – a French luxury beauty and skincare brand that takes science and personalization in skincare to a whole new level. And also to review its signature Bespoke Ritual, that is tailor-made to my skin’s needs.

During the private meeting at their Robinsons Heeren counter, I was asked to have my skin diagnosed using one of the patented devices above.

Review – 3-Month Course on Vita Hair by Vita Green

 

Lately, I have been so obsessed with hair loss and grey hair. Both have seriously affecting my self-esteem, confidence and self image. I have never quite believed that one day I will have to deal with these problems.

I began to notice patchy hair loss about 3 years ago. I didn’t do much about it cos they were not very visibly obvious at that time. All I concerned was my grey hair due to heredity. Now the situation has became worse and I need a solution desperately.

Though I know there are many causes of hair loss such as hormones, genetic, pregnancy, childbirth, sickness, medication, scalp infection, skin disorder, stress or chemical. I believe my hair loss is likely due to aging, stress, frequent hair coloring and scalp infection. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, deficiencies in the blood can also take a heavy toll on hair’s health.

I spotted my first few strands of grey hair at the age of 16 and I didn’t think much back then. By the time I reached my 30s, I already have 20% of grey hair all over my head. It was until then I realized this heredity cum aging sign is going to be a long term issue for me. My mom and late maternal grandmother have whole head of white hair.

I know jolly well that I will eventually end up like them in a matter of time. All thanks to this “wonderful” hereditary. And now, I have almost 40% of grey hair all over my head. Now I have to regularly cover them up with at-home haircolor every three to five weeks.

Recently, I was invited to review the Vita Hair Supplement by Vita Green, I agreed the offer without much hesitation. Many thanks to Elfaine from EK Media for extending this invitation to me. I have received a 3-month course of Vita Hair in order to see an improvement.
