.

.

After 10 years of research, 7 patents pending – Lancome is proud to present its first foundation that recreates the AURA of perfect skin – Lancome Teint Miracle Natural Light Creator Bare Skin Perfection Foundation SPF 16 PA++.

I was fortunate to be invited recently for a sneak preview of the Lancome’s new innovative Teint Miracle Liquid Foundation (S$65) and Teint Miracle Perfecting Corrector Pen (S$56) which both will be launching in October. Juliet Roberts is the spokesman for these products.

Lancome Teint Miracle Natural Light Creator Bare Skin Perfection Foundation SPF 16 PA++ (S$65)

The first thing that attracted me is its prestige and elegant looking crystal and silver bottle. I actually like its petite size which is slightly taller than my iPhone. Teint Miracle comes in 7 shades and I have selected the O-03 for its natural tone.

.

.

You will probably ask what so great about this foundation, well Lanc´me’s breakthrough Teint Miracle, with AURA-INSIDE technology, recreates the true natural lights of a perfect skin. With miracle of light, skin instantly appears lit-from-within, transparent and flawless.

It is a non-greasy formula that does not contain animal fats, providing a gentle cleanser that is suitable for all skin types especially sensitive skin. It is so mild that it can be used even on babies. It can be used with or without water. I have spotted this cleanser at National Skin Centre face washing area. :-)

Mojitate Kiajitsu & Deep Moist lipbalms – #1 Top Selling Lipbalms in Japan

.

I have recently received a set of wonderful lipbalms and they are the #1 Top Selling Lipbalms in Japan.

Mojitate Kajitsu Lipbalm

Deep Moist Lipbalm

.

.

Mojitate Kajitsu lipbalm

Mojitate Kajitsu lipbalm comes in 3 flavors – Strawberry, Orange & Mango and Lemon & Lime. It was so fascinating that I actually fall in love with its fruity flavor immediately after my first encounter with it. In love with the fruity scents, so real and natural! It smells so fruity sweet that it naturally reminds me of candies each time I apply it on my lip. Mojitate Kajitsu lipbalm provides amazing moisturizing result and my lip feels so smooth and soft. One great thing I like about this product is that I do not need to reapply as much as I do with other lipbalms. Mojitate Kajitsu lipbalm, with UV protection, contains beneficial antioxidant and hydrating ingredients such as squalane, grape, seed oil, vitamin A and E. The packaging, sweet and lively, will definitely woo many young gals out there. Which is my favorite? Well, all of them!!! :-)

.

Deep Moist Lipbalm

Deep Moist Menthol and Deep Moist Natural lipbalms are definitely a good alternative for those who doesn’t like fruity flavors. Deep Moist Menthol comes with menthol that provides cooling feeling after application. And if menthol is not your cup of tea either, then Deep Moist Natural will definitely be an ideal choice for you. Deep Moist Lipbalm provides excellent hydrating benefits with hyaluronic acid, jojoba oil, avocado oil, shea butter and vitamin E. After application, my lip feels soft and moisture and I really love the texture very much. :-)

We’re now in Round 2 level and all participating bloggers are required to attend a special AQUALABEL Workshop on either 18th or 19th August to learn about AQUALABEL’s full range of products and pick up skincare tips from the experts. I’ve selected the earlier date on 18th August for the workshop.

Each long table is divided into two sections – AQUALABEL Whitening (blue packaging) and AQUALABEL Moisturizing (red packaging) sector. And the bloggers will get to seat near to the range of products they prefer to try later.

As I have earlier attended the AQUALABEL Private Preview and have tested some of the products from Whitening Range, I was eager to try out the Moisturizing Range this round.

All contestants are required to participate on the hands-on session which means we will need to remove our makeup and experience the products on our face.

.

Yanny, our lovely AQUALABEL’s speaker, provided an in-depth information on the exclusive AQUALABEL technology and products. She has also thoroughly demonstrated the correct step-by-step skincare regime using AQUALABEL products.

Prior to the workshop, I have gotten the regime mix-up and now I’m able to advise my readers with the correct regime, thanks AQUALABEL!!


Whitening/Anti-Acne Night Skincare Regime - Deep Clear Cleansing Oil >> White Clear Foam >> White Up Lotion (S/R) or White A/C Lotion >> Bright White EX or White AC Essence OR Reset White Mask >> White Up Emulsion (S/R) or White AC Emulsion >> Aqua Enhancer WT >> White Up Cream

Treatment Review : TOUCHE Elite Clinical Radio Frequency (RF) Skin Treatment

.

Recently, Pearlin, our darling Social Media Connector, has cordially invited me for a complimentary Spa Treatment at TOUCHE Elite @ Orchard Hotel Shopping Arcade. I’m glad to be invited for this exclusive treatment. :-)

Upon reaching the spa, I was warmly welcomed by 3 beautiful ladies at the counter. The Spa Manager briskly showed me around and also briefly introduced the varies treatments available at TOUCHE Elite.

.

.

There are total of 4 TOUCHE outlets in Singapore. TOUCHE Elite, an exclusive spa, provides 2 great top-notch beauty treatments which are only exclusively available at TOUCHE Elite. And they are DNA-RNA Platinum NanoPLUS Treatment and Grape Wine AntioxidantPLUS Treatment.

.

.

TOUCHE Elite not only provides rejuvenation for face and body but also pampering the customers from head to toe with mani- and pedicure services.

.

.

TOUCHE Elite has 9 single treatment rooms and 3 couple treatment rooms for the lovely birds to enjoy the rejuvenation treatments at the same time. What a great idea!

.

.

As I have no idea on what spa treatment will they be offering me in the first place. I was extremely delighted when the manager offered their popular Elite Clinical Radio Frequency (RF) Skin Treatment as my complimentary treatment. Seems like they can read my mind……….hee hee………..I love anything that can do skin lifting task!

Elite Clinical Radio Frequency (RF) Skin Treatment, using the FDA-approved medical RF-type energy, is the latest breakthrough Technology using radio frequency wave to activate skin, fats and muscle tissues at cellular level for optimal correction, rejuvenation and improvement to restore our youth and vitality.

It is a non-invasive and safe treatment that uses a hand held wand to apply radio frequency energy deep into skin. RF waves causes a raise in temperature to shrink existing collagen to result in tightening of the overlying skin.

Key benefits

  • Regenerate collagen
  • Diminish wrinkles & double chin
  • Defining facial contour lines
  • Uplifts & firms sagging skin
  • Even out skin tone
  • Improve blood circulation
  • Reduce pore sizes & adult acne
  • Suitable for sensitive skin, especially eczema

A skin analysis is done by Melissa and the result shows that my skin is dehydrated. Oh no! :-(

3 Wonderful Things That Turned My BLUE Day To JOLLY Day!

.

Yesterday, I was a little moody and depressed. I didn’t get to sleep well the night before. :-( I woke up in the middle of the night thinking about something “personal” that I couldn’t let go. My smile was vanished and I was very quiet on the first half of the day.

But fortunately, my BLUE day has turned into JOLLY day on the second half of the day, thanks to those wonderful gifts I’ve received. They have made my day and my spirit was high again!…………(Grin) :-)

.

My First Smile

I have received a beautiful Perricone MD gift box that contains Vitamin Ester Eye Serum (my favourite), Nutritive Cleanser, Serum Prep and Face Finishing Moisture. I love them all! Muacks!!

.

My Second Smile

I’ve indulged myself with the complimentary luxury Spa-Jet Capsule Treatment at Clariancy Aesthetic Clinic @ Raffles Hotel. I was the Queen Of The Day! I don’t even need to shower myself and the therapist will do the dirty work. Hee hee…….. I get to enjoy the soothing exfoliation, steaming with far infrared heat that helps better nutrients penetration, true hydro-massage therapy, via Vichy shower and under-body water massage. WOO!! It was one of the best relaxing spa experience I ever have so far. It was like HEAVEN!!! (Stay tuned for my full review)

.

My Third Smile

After the Spa Capsule Treatment, the director of Clariancy Aesthetic Clinic generously presented me with a complimentary BBS Pro device (worth $199) that utilizes vibration, heating and cleansing effects of ultrasonic waves to improve skin nutrients penetration, stimulate collagen, lifting and break down fat cells. Can’t wait to try this product, love it too! :-)
