Philosophy Time In A Bottle Daily Age-Defying Serum


I’m a skincare junkie and I believe one of the beauty secrets for a bright-looking skin is to exfoliate our skin regularly.

Many months ago, I was invited to experience a mini rejuvenating peel facial session (about 60 mins) at Philosophy Peel Cabin at their newly opened flagship store at Takashimaya S.C. Ngee Ann City at B2-03A. During the session, I got to try a couple of Philosophy products for the first time, including their popular Microdelivery Peel. Super like the gentle touch of the therapist’s fingers.

Upon the event, I was presented with a new product – Time In A Bottle Daily Age-Defying Serum – and a bottle of 3-in-1 Cleanser For Face and Eyes.

[Sharing] BOSS MA VIE Pour Femme Perfume


Following the successful launch of BOSS JOUR Pour Femme and BOSS NUIT Pour Femme, BOSS Parfums add a new addition and completes the trilogy with BOSS MA VIE Pour Femme.

This new Eau de Parfum comes in the same elegant flacon design as the duo, with a precision cut crystal lid and a gold band, but packed in a soft shade of pink, a color chosen by Jason Wu, Artistic Director of BOSS Womenswear.

The new fragrance, positioned itself and with “ma vie” denoting “my life” in French, was inspired by an element of the BOSS woman’s life that until now has gone unnoticed. It draws on the pleasure she feels when she chooses to step out of her day to day routine, slow down, loosen up and simply enjoy a moment for herself. It captures the intimate essence of her independent spirit, releasing the indulgent and fulfilling sensation of simply savoring life.

The feminine, strong and independent character of the Hollywood star, Gwyneth Paltrow, makes her a perfect fit as brand ambassador for the fragrance. Like the BOSS woman, Gwyneth Paltrow exudes confidence, which is evident in the way that she wears the attire, the way that she walks, her posture and the scent that she chooses to wear.

Jason Wu, Artistic Director for BOSS Womenswear, created a tuxedo (a piece that is part of his first BOSS Womenswear collection) that perfectly complemented Gwyneth Paltrow’s personal style, emphasizing her beauty, strength and femininity.

Jason Wu, Artistic Director for BOSS Womenswear, inspired the fragrance campaign with his vision of a new, modern femininity across key aspects of BOSS MA VIE Pour Femme, including the wardrobe design and flacon shade.

Top – Modernity: Cactus Blossom

Top notes of cactus blossom accord capture the invigorating green freshness of the uncompromising desert plant, providing a unique and modern element to the fragrance. Known to demonstrate unconditional love of life in any condition, the essence evokes a lively and uplifting brightness, igniting the BOSS woman to fully live her life and take pleasure in the moment.

[Review] Laneige’s New Perfect Renew Firming Eye Cream


Laneige Perfect Renew Firming Eye Cream

A while ago, I was pleased to receive the new Laneige Perfect Renew Firming Eye Cream. As the skin around our eyes is the first place to show visible signs of aging, I therefore can’t leave without a good eye cream in both day and night regimens.

The latest addition to Laneige’s anti-aging Perfect Renew range – Perfect Renew Firming Eye Cream – is said to restore elasticity and deeply hydrate the eye area for younger-looking skin around the eyes.

Laneige Perfect Renew Firming Eye Cream is formulated with the following key ingredients:

  1. Laneige Skin Charger Complex™ intensively revitalizes worn-out mitochondria (the cell’s natural energy powerhouse) in cells and reconstructs damaged skin skeletal protein, which promotes fuller and more supple-looking skin. It is also a multi-pronged, anti-aging solution to tackle signs of aging, such as wrinkles, dryness, dullness and lack of skin elasticity, restoring a natural buoyancy to skin’s collagen.
  2. Laneige Ceramide Repair Water, a skin-friendly water which combines moisture and ceramide to fortify the skin’s moisture barrier, provides advanced moisture care to deeply nourish the skin from within. The repair water fills in between the cells to draw a deeper penetration of active anti-aging ingredients, optimising nutrient absorption – the key to eliminating skin dryness and dullness.

It contains potent emollients such as Squalane, Jojoba Esters and cetearyl alcohol.
