.

To welcome the launch of the 2 latest addition to the men’s Facial Fuel Collection this August, many weeks ago I was pleasantly surprised to receive an exclusive designed fun-looking Facial Fuel “Energizing” Box from Kiehls. Many thanks to Kiehl’s Singapore. It is specially created for me to present it to the man of my life – my hubby. :-)

In addition to the 2 new Facial Fuel products – Facial fuel No-Shine Hydrator Oil-Free 24-Hour Moisture Gel and Facial Fuel Sky Flyin’ Foaming Multi-Gel – the box also contains a Hot Wheels Toy Car, a Fighter Toy Plane (as Kiehl’s believe that men are forever young at heart plus Aaron Morse was a WWII pilot plus an avid collector of Harleys & Red Indians, even displaying them at the Kiehl’s flagship store since 1960s!) and lastly a $10 Starbucks card (fuel the day with energy and caffeine is found in most of Facial Fuel products).

Review – Latest “Skin-Tightening” Thermage CPT (3rd Generation) Procedure

.

Age is really catching up with me lately (44 this year) and there’s nothing I can do to prevent it. I’m fully aware that aging is inevitable, so what I can do for myself now is to delay the aging process as much as I can.

One of my most obvious tell-tale signs of aging on my face is loss of skin firmness and sagging jawline. Although the best option is to go for a surgical facelift but there is too much risk involved and I’m not ready for it yet. Probably in another three to five years down the road I may consider it. Hence for now, the best alternative for me is to go for a non-invasive skin-tightening treatment – Thermage.

.

Why Thermage?

Are you new to Thermage? Well Thermage is a non-invasive skin-tightening procedure that can help smooth, tighten and contour our skin for an overall younger looking appearance in a single treatment without surgery or injections. It uses patented radio-frequency technology to safely heat the deeper layers of our skin, stimulating the existing collagen and promoting new collagen growth.

I opt for Thermage instead of other skin-tightening treatments such as Ulthera and Titan, as I personally feel more confident with it and it has researched to be the best option for skin tightening.

I actually have Thermage procedure done twice, first by Dr Valentin Low (Paragon) many years ago and last by Dr Calvin Chan (Wheelock) last year in November 2011. However both were big disappointments!

This round, I decided to get Thermage procedure done by Dr Chee from Chelsea Clinic (formally known as Wen & Weng Medical Group) as he’s using the latest Thermage CPT technology.

Previewed Lanc´me NEW G©nifique Yeux Light-Pearl Eye-Illuminating Youth Activator

.

Crow’s feet, fine lines around the eye area is the first to show tell-tale sign of aging. Your eyes hold centre stage in your face and are the key to facial beauty. When your eyes succumb to fatigue and lose their radiance, the entire face loses its vibrancy, expressiveness and its youth.

“A youthful-looking eye contour is more open, brighter.”

Recently, I have attended a cosy private Lanc´me event to preview the NEW G©nifique eye serum that offers breakthrough care to illuminate eyes with a 360º treatment and also to peek at the latest FALL Makeup Collection too! Click here to read my recent post on the latest FALL Makeup Collection.

G©nifique, first launched in 2009, is proud to introduce its new innovative eye care addition to its line – G©nifique Yeux Light-Pearl Eye-Illuminating Youth Activator. It will be available at all Lanc´me Beauty Counters from September 2012 onwards, retailing at S$110 for 20ml. For the first time, Lanc´me creates an eye serum combining the science of G©nifique with a high performance pearl-shaped applicator to make eyes appear more open.

The eye contour is a particularly fragile area and is where signs of aging appear early. Equipped with strong expertise in eye contour care, Lanc´me’s Laboratories have now identified up to 10 signs of eye aging such as puffiness, dark circles, loss of firmness, fine lines and wrinkles. G©nifique Yeux Light-Pearl serum offers eye contour care that does not only target these anti-aging concerns, but provides a global brightening solution to rejuvenate the entire youthfulness of the eye area and, by extension, the face.

Outstanding markers for genes activity, these proteins determine skin’s density, suppleness and aesthetic qualities. A major scientific breakthrough protected by 7 patents.

Lactacyd White Intimate & Lactacyd Revitalize

.

Feminine hygiene is very important to me and for more than 20 years I refrain from washing it with any ordinary shower gel or bar soap. Since the skin and the lining of the vagina is extremely sensitive, harsh soaps can actually irritate my vagina and cause uncomfortable feeling such as itchiness. Therefore, I will only wash the area with specially-designed feminine wash.

A few weeks ago, I was invited to try out 2 new feminine washes – Lactacyd White Intimate and Lactacyd Revitalize. I accepted the offer without much hesitation as I’m quite keen to learn more about the new formulation especially the whitening benefits.

Despite majority of the women are conscious about feminine hygiene care, however many of us have actually neglected the importance of using a proper feminine wash. Feminine wash is designed to help prevent infections and itchiness in the intimate areas.

Lactacyd believes that every part of the our body deserves the best care, especially the intimate area, for a fair and flawless skin.

S$2.50 for 60ml and S$13.90 for 250ml

Darkened bikini area is a result of perspiration and excessive friction from tight clothing – both which are common in Singapore’s weather and female fashion choices.

A Sneak Peek At 2012 Anna Sui Cosmetics Autumn Eyeshadows

.

A while ago after attended a beauty event with a few fellow bloggers on a Saturday evening, we decided to head down to Anna Sui Cosmetics counter at Isetan Scotts to preview the new 2012 Anna Sui Cosmetics Autumn eye colors. Two of the bloggers (Kas and Joey) were invited to receive 3 compliment eye colors of their choice.

I was pleasantly surprised that the PR representative, who was at the counter during our visit, actually extended the compliment offer to me too. I’m glad to be able to also receive 3 compliment eye colors of my choice too. I’m super delighted! :-)

So here are the 3 colors I’ve chosen. No.202 is an ultra light pink shade with a tinge of purple, No.302 is a pink shade and No.206 is is a dark greyish black. Each color costs S$19 only.

Above picture : A set of 3 eyeshadows (S$19 x 3) and a case (S$16), that comes with a brush, will cost you S$73.

I actually regretted not buying the eyeshadow case only while I was there. I will likely be dropping by at one of the Anna Sui counters soon.

I’ve also received a pretty red makeup pouch with the 3 eyeshadows too. Thanks to Anna Sui for all these lovely gifts.

Well, thanks for reading this short post and hope to see you around again. :-)
