The Body Shop’s New Drops Of Youth™ Bouncy Sleeping Mask & Wonderblur™


Due to aging, our skin loses its elasticity and it takes much longer to bounce back into shape. When our skin is well hydrated, it will appear plump, supple and bounce back easily. Hence hydration is essential for good elasticity.

The Body Shop Drops of Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask

Recently, I’ve received two new products from The Body Shop – the new Drops of Youth™ Bouncy Sleeping Mask and the Wonderblur.

The Body Shop Drops of Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask

The new Drops of Youth™ Bouncy Sleeping Mask, the latest addition to their best-selling youth-enhancing range, is available in-stores from 8 January 2015, at S$44.90.

In the recent years, sleeping mask has taken the world by storm. It has became the ‘must-have’ product for many beauty junkies. I actually like sleeping mask a lot. Sleeping mask is a leave-on overnight treatment that helps to recharge my dehydrated skin while I sleep and I only rinse off in the next morning. I actually love using sleeping mask during a night flight (at least 5 hours flight) as the air inside the cabin of a plane is typically dry, usually 10%–20% humidity.

[Review] CALECIM® Professional Stem Cell Facial Treatment


In the recent years, skincare products formulated with stem cells have been getting really popular in Asia. It is claimed to be one of the “must have” latest skincare ingredients with anti-aging benefits.

What is stem cells?
Stem cells are the source of all cells. They have an ability to renew themselves and to become various types of cells, such as a skin cell.

How do stem cells keep our skin younger?
As we age, stem cells gradually lose their ability to repair damage, even from normal wear and tear. When applied topically, this ‘star’ ingredient is said to help renew our skin and protect the skin stem cells from damage.

CALECIM Professional

Recently, I was pleased to experience a month (4 sessions) of rejuvenating Stem Cells treatments at Knightsbridge Clinic, located at 277A South Bridge Road. The treatment uses Cord Lining Stem Cells named CALECIM® Professional to help renew my skin. The scientists at CellResearch Corporation discovered a significant new source of stem cells in the Umbilical Cord Lining Membrane – the outermost ‘skin’ of the mammalian umbilical cord. It is from intense research into Cord Lining Stem Cells that CALECIM® was developed.

Cord Lining Stem Cells are growth factors and when applied to the skin, they stimulate collagen production, improve elasticity and many more. To put it simple, they cause our own stem cells to go to work.
