The Body Shop has recently launched a new addition to its popular antioxidant Vitamin E series, it is the new Vitamin E Overnight Serum-In-Oil. This new unique serum-in-oil concentrate is claimed to help recharge and replenish our skin overnight, to reveal a fresh and rested skin by the morning.

Recent survey has shown that most Asian women (1 of over 10,000 people across 15 Asian markets) are not able to achieve a full 8 hours of blissful sleep most of the time. Due to the lack of sleep, they feel restless easily and their skin also appear tired and dull.

Do you know it is critical for the skin to maintain a healthy moisture level to perform effectively and retain its vitality. One key to this is having a discrete oily (lipid) layer on the skin surface to help entrap the skin’s moisture. Replenishment of this layer, which can be impacted by over cleansing, age, climate, has been shown to support the skin’s ability to maintain moisture levels.

New Vitamin E Overnight Serum-In-Oil – S$42.90 / 28ml

Vitamin E Overnight Serum-in-Oil is a concentrate that combines the power of a serum with the indulgence of an oil to replenish and recharge skin with moisture overnight.

You probably will ask why mix a serum with an oil? Well, Jason Matthews, The Body Shop’s resident skincare expert, has revealed that a serum can deliver strong skincare enhancements to a normal regimen when blended with a combination of oils.

Laneige’s Latest Improved White Plus Renew Line & New 6-in-1 BB Cushion

 

In January 2014, I have attended a private Laneige event to preview its latest improved White Plus Renew Line and its new 6-in-1 BB Cushion. The event was held at TCC By The Bay @ Marina at Keppel Bay.

The new improved White Plus Renew line comprises of Bubble Cleanser (S$34), Skin Refiner (S$45), Emulsion (S$45), Original Essence (S$78), Eye Cream (S$55), Spot Treatment (S$65), Original Cream (S$62), Tone Up Corrector (S$45) and Capsule Sleeping Pack (S$42).

Through its innovative and proprietary Melacrusher™ whitening technology, the new improved White Plus Renew line helps Asian women to achieve brighter, clearer and flawless-looking skin. This technology not only brightens but also provides 3-color undertones care to balance the red, yellow and dark undertones. This improves rough and dull skin tone which is found to be a common problem for many Asian women. Skin looks radiant, flawless and 2 tones brighter than one’s natural skin tone, which many Asian women perceive as the ideal skin tone for herself.

Melacrusher™ Technology

Formulated with truffle yeast, green tea extracts and Niacinamide (Vitamin B3), Melacrusher™ Technology is said to break down and remove melanin, helping our skin achieve a radiant, even-toned complexion. It also eliminates tri-colored undertones – red, yellow and dark – resulting in a 2-tone brighter skin. With this new technology, Laneige White Plus Renew line improves six core elements of brightening – glow, moisture, brightness, clarity, even skin tone, and reduced melanin level.

The White Plus Renew line is free of 1.4 dioxane, animal products, artificial pigments and mineral oil.

Redefine Your Beauty Sleep

Your skin repairs and renew itself while you sleep. New skin cells grow and replace older cells. Hence it’s essential to take advantage of those precious eight hours as your skin goes into repair mode. So after removing all make-up and residue on the skin, a night cream will gently help your skin’s rejuvenation process. Say goodnight to fine lines, uneven skin tone and roughness. and wake up having a smoother and youthful skin.

Your skin actually does most of its repair work between the golden hours of 10:30pm and 2am, and I will strongly advise you to sleep during the hours. It actually makes a big difference if I sleep after 2am. My skin will appear dry, rough and dull-looking in the next morning.

Hope In A Jar Night, an intense retexturizing moisturizer, helps redefine your beauty sleep with a gentle dose of glycolic acid that allows deeper penetration into the skin that stimulates cell regeneration and plump up fine lines.

Four months ago, I was glad to attend my first La Roche-Posay event to preview their latest sunscreen that has a double anti-shine action with ultra-dry finish.

My bad for taking so long to blog about it! <grinning>

It was a cozy and very informative event and I have learned a lot about sun damages and protection from Dr Jean Ho. Dr Jean Ho is the Consultant Dermatologist at Mount Elizabeth Medical Centre and Mount Elizabeth Novena Specialist Centre. She’s also the Visiting Specialist to KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital. This private event was held at Mount Elizabeth Novena Hospital.

Do you know what’s the differences between UVA and UVB? Well, UVA rays can age our skin and UVB can burn our skin. Our skin is exposed roughly 20 times more to UVA rays (95%) than UVB rays (5%)! And UVB penetrates into epidermis layer however UVA penetrates deeply into dermis layer hence damaging our collagen, elastin fibres and even DNA, causing premature aging like sun spots, wrinkles, photo-aging, dull-looking skin, uneven skin tone, enlarged pores and even skin cancer.

Do you know UVA rays are present all year long even on a cloudy day? In addition, UVA rays cannot be filtered by clouds or windows.
