Clarins UV Plus Anti-Pollution SPF 50/PA++++ Day Screen Multi-Protection


To upkeep my youthful looking skin, SUNSCREEN is one skincare product I absolutely cannot leave without. Whether if it’s rain or shine, indoor or outdoor, I will always apply broad-spectrum sunscreen on my face from 9am to 4pm every day. I reckon many of you may not be aware that exposure to UV rays can actually accelerate aging process.

Clarins UV Plus Anti-Pollution PA++++

Recently, I have received a surprised parcel from Clarins Singapore and it contains the latest updated series of UV Plus Day Screen that is now formulated with an anti-pollution protection and with PA++++. I actually go ga-ga when I see PA++++ on the packaging! The four ‘plus’ actually means it gives a maximum protection against aging damage, as compared to those with only PA+++. This new UV Plus Anti-Pollution is also formulated with SPF 50 that helps protect the skin against sun burn.

I must confess, I’m really obsessed with looking and staying younger! In addition to protecting my skin against harmful UV rays, I’m also a strong believer of protecting my skin from environmental factors such as harmful particles and toxins. Studies have shown that city living actually makes the skin age much faster than a rural living. UV and pollution are the main causes of premature aging and hyperpigmentation, that lead to rough and uneven skin texture.

The Clarins UV Plus Day Screen was first introduced in 2005, specially created for Asian women living in the city. 10 years after its success, Clarins has now gone even further, to offer even higher protection, not just against UV rays but also against the harmful effects of pollution. In 2015, Clarins introduces a new powerful sunscreen – UV Plus Anti-Pollution.

Clarins Research has demonstrated that UV rays and pollution generate damage in the skin, including an overproduction of free radicals in the dermis and epidermis which speeds up skin aging, damages skin texture and alters skin color.

UV Plus Anti-Pollution now available in three shades : Neutral, Baby Pink and Baby Blue.

[Threadlift Review] Korean Ultra V Lift Procedure


If you have read my recent posts, you must have read my latest review on skin-tightening Thermage treatment which I’ve done late last year. Click HERE to read the review post. I get to see significant results, my face appears firmer and lifted.

However, it doesn’t make my face looks slimmer and sharper. Do you know a V-shaped face will actually make us look more feminine and younger? I was born with a chubby cheek and double chin, and I always envy girls with V-shaped face. As I age, fat starts to gather and fatty pads accumulate on my lower cheeks, jowls and under the chin. :-(

Recently I was re-introduced to threadlift again. As I wasn’t really keen before, I didn’t get much of an impression on this procedure. What I’ve learned is that it is a minimally-invasive face lifting surgical procedure that address sagging underlying tissues of the check and jawline by threading sutures into the skin and deeper soft tissues. The absorbable threads stay within the deep tissues and provide support. Threadlift is considered less invasive than a surgical facelift however it does inherent risks. Threadlift is claimed to be able to help us achieve the V-shape facial we desire and realign sagging tissue without going under the knife.

I was told I made the perfect candidate, thanks to my chubby lower cheeks and double chin (due to aging, fat deposits tend to accumulate around the chin areas).

About a week before the Valentine Day, ETUDE HOUSE has hosted the Valentine’s Day Cocktail party at its Wisma Atria flagship store. My bad for not able to share this post earlier as I was so held up with the Chinese New Year preparation and visiting.

The star color for this Valentine 2015 Collection is pink. Pink is actually one of my favorite colors as it makes me feel calm and gentle.

A beautiful corner for the princesses.

Customers can jump into this photo booth and snap some nice shots.

ETUDE HOUSE offers a wide selection of PLAY nail polishes. As the prices are so affordable (S$3.90 for normal, S$5.90 for glittery), I’ve owned a handful of them! :D
