benefit brow bar singapore

Last month, I was invited to an intimate tea session with a few other bloggers by the good people from Benefit Cosmetics Singapore.

We were introduced to their National Brow Artist, Jerlyn Low, and we spent the afternoon talking about brow grooming and how to have that ideal looking pair of eyebrows .

So last week, I finally managed to find time to pay Jerlyn a visit at the Brow Bar (she’s stationed at Sephora Ngee Ann City btw) to try out their so ever popular brow tint and brow wax.

Laboratoires FILORGA Paris Skincare Products


Oops my bad! Here’s another super late post again!


Long ago, I’ve received 4 anti-aging skincare products by Laboratoires FILORGA Paris and they are Hydra-Filler, Meso-Mask, Sleep And Peel and Cleansing Foam (I gave away before blogging this post). Many thanks to Chantana who helped to obtain these products for me.

I kept the products in a large storage box (with other cosmetics products), and I totally forgot about it after that.

Laboratoires FILORGA Paris has a history of more than 30 years with 1.5 millions patients treated in 54 countries. It is claimed to be one of the world’s leaders in global anti-aging therapy including developing, manufacturing and distributing anti-wrinkle dermal filling products, mesotherapy injections and medical peelings. Laboratoires FILORGA Paris is positioned as the only French range of dermo-cosmetic products originating directly from aesthetical medicine.

The common characteristic of the range are hyaluronic acid and NCTF®, active ingredients identical to those injected products. NCTF® contains 53 ingredients including amino acids, vitamins, co-enzymes, minerals and nucleic acids.

[Review] Restylane Skinboosters Treatment


One of my beauty secrets to reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles is to keep my skin well hydrated at all times. Apart from drinking lots of plain water, I will also apply adequate amount of hydrating serum and moisturizer that preferably contains hyaluronic acid. In fact hyaluronic acid is one of the main components of the skin that actually helps give our skin a radiant look. As we age the skin’s ability to produce hyaluronic acid decreases and can result in drier and thinner skin with a dull complexion. When my skin is hydrated, fine lines and wrinkles will tend to look less noticeable, the skin will appear less dull too.

A couple of weeks back, I was pleased to try out the Restylane Skinboosters treatment, administrated by Dr Chee from Chelsea Clinic at Wheelock Place. Restylane Skinboosters are stabilised hyaluronic molecules of non-animal origin, in a smooth, pure crystal clear gel state produced by patented NASHA® technology. It resembles the skin’s own hyaluronic acid which is a naturally occurring substance in the skin for restoring hydrobalance, and in turn, making the skin look plump, smooth and elastic. A series of micro-injections are injected into our skin.

[Review] Svenson Hair Oxy DH Therapy


Over the recent years, I’ve noticed my hair has been thinning out and my hairline is receding. These problems really stressed me up. I have recently learned that in order to reduce hair loss or thinning, I really need to take good care of my scalp. Hair problems such as hair thinning or hair loss tends to surface if our scalp is congested, or overly oily. Detoxifying the scalp can therefore restore its health for hair that looks fuller and more lustrous.

And also as we age, our hair follicles tend to become thinner due to poor blood circulation and lack of nutrients penetration, thus weakening the structure of hair. Whilst factors such as genetics, diseases, illnesses, medications, an unhealthy diet and stressful lifestyle can cause hair loss, the lack of oxygen to the hair is one key element that can cause hair loss or thinning of the hair that is often overlooked.

A couple weeks back, I was pleased to experience a newly launched Oxy DH Therapy by Svenson Hair, the leading hair and scalp care professionals in Asia. This treatment uses a natural source – OXYGEN, to take care of a variety of hair conditions, including alopecia, diffused hair loss and post-natal hair loss. It can help detoxifying the scalp to maintain healthy hair scalp.

Taking care of my scalp is utterly important now. I was told our scalp may not be thoroughly cleansed even after we have shampooed our hair.

The white spots may indicate my scalp or follicle is inflamed or clogged.

I have very light pink scalp (feel itchy on some spots from time to time), and this is an indication of irritation or inflammation that can lead to hair thinning. Hence this complimentary treatment came at the right time. Healthy hair scalp is whitish in color.

The customers here will enjoy the privacy as each room has its own basin.

The therapist began the treatment by first applying a mask lotion on my scalp, section by section. It gives a cooling sensation that lasts about two minutes. This PH Mask helps to detox and soften the dead skin cells. The therapist then shampooed my hair twice to make sure the mask is completely removed from the scalp.

Followed next was a gentle massage with high frequency light on my scalp and then a steaming that lasted about 10 minutes.

After which an anti-bacterial procedure to disinfect my scalp. It gives a mild tingling current sensation that feels super relaxing. :D

Shirleen’s Passion For Blogging Continues!


Lately, I have not been very active on my blog and have been neglecting my loyal readers for a while. And I believe I have lost some of them recently. My bad as I’ve been extremely busy juggling my day job, blogging and personal life at the same time.

Just to let you know I have recently accepted an overseas job offer and I will be relocating to Beijing very soon! However, I wouldn’t be able to attend any event in Singapore moving forward. But I will try my best to sneak back to SG as often as I can. My passion for blogging doesn’t stop here! Blogging is still part of my life and this passion will stay with me indefinitely…. I promise!

The good thing is I might be able to travel to US (for work) and probably Seoul or Japan (for leisure) pretty often. The distance between Beijing to Seoul and Japan are reasonably near. Instead of advertorial posts which I have been doing pretty often lately, if based in the foreign country I will get to do more reviews, share my favorite products and uncover new products from US, Seoul and Japan.

And I will like to introduce my co-blogger Carol! She loves beauty stuff and aesthetic treatments as much as I do! Please join me in welcoming her to WomenLoveBeauty! She will be attending future events on behalf of me when I’m not around. :D

Once I arrive at Beijing, I will probably be in low profile for the first few weeks and do bear with me for a while as I will need to settle down and set up the VPN as soon as I can. Don’t forget me please! I promise I will be back real soon! SEE YA! :D
