Review – Garnier Light & Aqua Second Skin Masks

.

Quite a while ago, I was invited to review 2 facial masks from Garnier. They are the newly launched Second Skin Mask Range in 2 selections – Light Intensive 3 in 1 Whitening Essence Second Skin Mask and Aqua Defense Hydrating Glowing Essence Second Skin Mask.

I’ve received one sheet from each selection.

Designed specifically to suit Asian women’s facial features, Second Skin Mask uses innovative high fitting tissue which allows the mask to stay on all curves of the face perfectly.

Using new weightless technology, Garnier Second Skin Mask is a thin translucent sheet that lies closely to the skin, reducing trapped air bubbles.

Mini Giveaway – NEW Gillette Venus & Olay Razor

 

Wow Christmas Day was just over, did you enjoy it? To celebrate the 15-day of Christmas, I decided to throw a post Christmas mini giveaway now! Though I’ve just threw a pre-Christmas giveaway contest which ended last week. :D This round I’m going to give away the NEW Gillette Venus & Olay Razor!

Read on to find out more about the giveaway!

Gillette Venus & Olay shaver

For the first time ever, Gillette Venus, a global leader in female shaving, and Olay, a global leader in skincare, are coming together to deliver a new gold standard in female shaving. With the launch of the new Gillette Venus & Olay razor, the superior hair removal and skin care technologies of Venus and Olay have been combined to ensure a close, smooth shave for beautiful skin.

The razor flaunts 2-in-1 benefits: the Olay Moisture Bars help lock-in moisture to your skin for less dryness, and Venus’ five blades give a close shave with every smoothing stroke. The result is ultra-smooth, beautiful skin, which gives women the confidence to reveal their inner Goddess.

Key Benefits :

  • Five progressively-aligned, spring-mounted blades adjust to women’s curves for a more comfortable shave and fewer missed hairs, even over tricky shaving areas like knees and ankles. A thinner blade edge means a lower cutting force is needed to remove hair, therefore less pressure on your skin.
  • Olay Moisture Bars contain skin-enhancing elements found in Olay products: Petrolatum helps lock in skin’s moisture for less dryness and Glycerin helps offer that goddess glow! Just wet the razor to release a light lather – no separate shave cream required.
  • As with most Venus razors, new Venus & Olay also features a rounded, pivoting head designed for women’s curves, and a soft-grip ergonomic handle for confident control, even in wet and soapy environments.

Venus and Olay is available starting 1st December 2012 at supermarket, pharmaceutical, and convenience stores throughout Singapore, as well as online at Zalora Singapore (www.zalora.sg). A refillable Venus & Olay razor is approximately S$19.50 while three replacement cartridges are also about S$19.50.

Guest Blogger Dr. Irwin – Are Your Hands Revealing Your Age?

.

Womenlovebeauty’s guest blogger Dr. Brandith Irwin who has been a guest medical expert on The Oprah Winfrey Show and the Weekend Today Show, reveals beauty tips on hand care.

.

Are your hands revealing your age?

It is easy to focus only on your face when considering anti-aging procedures and products, but don’t forget to treat for your hands too.

Our hands often reveal our age because as we get older they lose volume, which leads to thin skin and visible veins and tendons. Additionally, our hands are constantly exposed to the sun and we usually forget to put sunscreen on them daily. This results in brown spots and a leathery appearance.

There are a variety of treatments available to rejuvenate your hands, so they look just as youthful as your face!

First, look at your hands. Is the problem brown spots, loose, inelastic skin, enlarged veins, or loss of volume? Or, a combination of these? The best treatment option for you depends on the condition of your hands.

My 3-Week Use Of The NEW Elizabeth Arden NEW Prevage@ Anti-Aging + Intensive Repair Daily Serum

 

Wow! It’s end of the year 2012 and time really flies! I’m rapidly approaching my mid 40s next year! Oh my, I can’t believe it happens so fast!

At 40s, I’m fully aware that aging is inevitable and everyone of us will experience chronological aging which occurs over time. To prevent and delay skin aging, I load my skin with potent antioxidant skincare products. And one of my favorite anti-aging ranges is Elizabeth Arden Prevage line. Currently, I’m using the Prevage Face Advanced Anti-aging Serum and Prevage Day Ultra Protection Anti-aging Moisturizer SPF 30++, both during the day.

And recently, I got to attend a super cozy event to preview Elizabeth Arden newest and most powerful anti-aging serum, that was held at Ardent’s Cafe @ Neil Road. I was super delighted about this new launch and so far I have tested this new innovative serum for almost 3 weeks now.

Do continue reading and I will be sharing my review on it soon.
