Elizabeth Arden’s Exquisite 5 Min Ceramide Self Foaming Mask & Untold Eau Legere

Hi Lovelies! <3

Today I’ll be introducing 2 products that I’ve been using and loving. ๐Ÿ˜‰

So a while back (I know I’ve been using this to intro A LOT of my updates, lol, I’m really working towards saying “So a few days a go”…) I was invited to Elizabeth Arden’s Blogger Event for their new launch of ย Ceramide Boosting 5 Minute Facial and Untold Eau Legere.

As usual, photos of the event followed by my personal review! ๐Ÿ˜‰

We were each given a piece of paper to chronicle our own UNTOLD story…

Once again we have Elizabeth Arden trainer Angeline to introduce the new products and the story behind them to us… ๐Ÿ™‚

Elizabeth Arden Blogger Event Mask Untold Fragrance2014-05-28 20.19.41_new

Elizabeth Arden adds the newย Ceramide Boosting 5-Minute Facialย to its range of Ceramide youth-restoring skincare products.

It’s a 2 step, bi weekly (u can use it 1-2 times a week)ย system that includes a luxurious Self-Foaming Mask and Replenishing Serum. The duo boasts to help to detoxify surface impurities and boost radiance for the ultimate flawless looking complexion.ย 

Step 1: Self Foaming Mask 30ml

This ultra light mask glides easily onto the skin’s surface. After seconds, the unique formula works itself into a light foam, activating chemical and enzymatic exfoliators to gently cleanse as well as a purifying system to help detoxify surface impurities and promote skin cell turnover. Skin is left cleansed and primed for the second step.

To apply: Dispense a cotton ball sized amount of the Self Foaming Mask into hands. Apply a thin even layer to dry or damp uncleansed face and neck. Allow product to gradually foam into a luxurious Mask as it draws out surface impurities. During the mask’s activation, a tingling sensation is likely to occur, after the mask is fully activated (about 2 minutes), rinse well with luke warm water. Pat dry.

Key ingredients include:ย 

–ย Lactic Acid and Protease Enzymeย that gently exfoliates and dissolves surface skin clogging impurities
–ย Botanical Extractsย –ย a blend of bilberry, sugar cane, sugar maple, orange, and lemon botanical extractsย which contain naturally occuring apha hydroxy acids, that helps exfoliate skin.
–ย Targeted Peptide:ย ย a purifying peptide that helps prime skin for optimum treatment
–ย Glycerin: a humectant (molecule that keeps moist) that replenishes skin with moisture.

Step 2: Replenishing Serum, 15ml

The serum’s silky formula delivers Elizabeth Arden’s Ceramide Triple Complex deep into skin’s surface. It helps reinforce skin’s protective barrier providing enhanced moisturizaion and a smoother texture as it soothes sensitive skin. The serum is further enriched with Retinyl Linoleate and Tropical Fruit Extract to help firm, strengthen and retexturize skin’s appearance. Soothing ingredients like Aloe Vera and Rice Kefiran leave skin calmed and soothed.

To apply: Immediately following step 1, apply Replenishing Serum to dry face and neck with fingertips and massage evenly in a circular motion, Let the product absorb to replenish and deeply hydrate the skin.ย 

Check out the on-set demonstration!

Our stories are pasted on the mirror and the Elizabeth Arden ladies discuss which UNTOLD story deserves a prize… I *ahem* shared about a JC crush which apparently isn’t much of an UNTOLD story, keke. The winner is my friend June! ๐Ÿ˜€

Then we had a special guest, Marco Ficarelli, the VP of Elizabeth Arden of Asia popped by towards the end of the event to chit chat with us! ๐Ÿ™‚

Ficarelli says he’s personal friends with global blogger, fashion accessories and shoe designer Chiara Ferragni, someone I personally adore very much too! Maybe one day he can boast that he’s friends with Ena Teo. ๐Ÿ˜‰ He also shared about the 8 Hour cream that is part of Elizabeth Arden’s heritage and promptly made arrangements for us to receive it via post to use and review. I have it with me and will be reviewing in a separate post!

I’m adding this review in as as extension of my previous post! This EA Flawless Finish Perfectly Nude foundationย doesn’t need further introduction as I’ve shared about it in my other post, and I love it for it being like my second skin, lightweight and the colour really matches my skin flawlessly. I can’t attest the same for you as we all have varying skin tone, but I highly recommend you to get yours swatched and let me know if you have the same experience as me! ๐Ÿ™‚

Check out my #MOTD (Make of the Day) with this Flawless Finish Perfectly Nudeย foundation:

No filter! The EA Flawless Finish Perfectly Nude foundation in Natural 5 is an amazing match for me, with moderate coverage that doesn’t feel heavy or cakey. <3

~My reviews!~
Elizabeth Arden Blogger Event Mask Untold Fragrance2014-06-06 11.26.14_new

I found this Ceramide Boosting 5-Minute Facialย to be remarkable, it’s my first self-foaming mask and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience, like a girl experience magic popping sugar in her mouth, or bubbly champagne for the first time; but in a home facial manner, on her skin. ๐Ÿ˜› The products work exactly as promised for me; smear the mask across the skin and the enzymes start to work their magic and activate with a tingly sensation, then the face is cleansed ย within 2 minutes after which you will need to wash with warm water leaving the skin taut, that’s why it’s required to replenish the skin with the serum. The serum is silky without being too heavy, so it’s great! Retails at Eliz Arden counters island wide for $149. It is good for up to 8 facials per set.

UNTOLD Eau Legere, the last two words means light water. It’s definitely a story awaiting to be Told, and anything but light. I am usually not a fan of Sandalwood and White Musk, so with these ingredients forming the base of this fragrance I was quite apprehensive of embracing this fragrance. But I have come to appreciate this fragrance as I used it a handful of times for this review. I am impressed with how multi-faceted this scent is; it is amazing that a scent can be 5 tiered and layered in ways I never thought possible before. And you know what, it perfectly encapsulates what a modern lady is like; she’sย Vibrant, Spontaneous, Feminine, Mysterious, Sensual all at once. Maybe you’re not, maybe you’d like to be this modern lady, nevertheless I encourage you to let this fragrance transform you into a modern woman to tackle on this world with a crisp white dress and high heels! ๐Ÿ™‚

Here’s my made up look! The blue eyeshadow is lighter in colour, creamier and of course my skin looks fresher with a coat of the
Flawless Finish Perfectly Nude Makeupย  SPF 15PA++ (S$70) ! It’s touted to be a lightweight, luminous foundation and proven to minimize pores. I think it provides really great coverage and a smooth finishing! My shade’s in Natural 05. Flawless Finish Correcting and Highlighting Perfector ($40)ย I used it to conceal my dark circles and highlight the area below my brows. Works like a charm. ย And yes do I love the Beautiful Color Gloss Stick in Sunrise (Pink)!ย I personally think that the look is sophisticated, allowing one to step out from the office and right onto some summer beach or pool party. Yeah~

2014-04-10 20.31.42

I am very happy with my look. ๐Ÿ˜€
I always believe that to look good, one needs to have good skincare, makeup products & confidence. ๐Ÿ™‚
I personally think we should invest in the best skincare and foundation that we can afford, and of course the confidence comes free, and often it comes easily when you’ve got good skin. You can trust me on that, as I use to have teenage acne troubles!

What’s an event, if not for the memories that we take back with us?

Visible Whitening with Elizabeth Arden

Hello all you lovely people~

In a blink of an eye ๐Ÿ˜‰ , ย May’s here! I do hope you’re enjoying this lovely May Day. ๐Ÿ™‚

Well, I hope you’re out having dinner or relaxing at home, cause I’m here at my desk blogging. ๐Ÿ˜€

If you’re a regular reader, you’ll know that I don’t have a schedule for publishing new posts. I try to write as much as I can (which isn’t more than 2-3 posts each seating, haha!) when I’m free and schedule them over the week. Lately the drafts have been piling up due to the fashion, beauty & lifestyle events I’ve attended and products received for review. And I always think that I should spend a certain time of the day (early morning, really) to blog, but I don’t have that discipline to do so, sigh pie. :/ I also hope to be able to share more creative and original content (yunno, like non-sponsored posts, haha!) but I also have an obligation (personally-imposed) to finish blogging about the sponsored ones first. Plus, it’s not nice if I get invited as a blogger, but then I don’t blog about it right? HAHA. Ok, surely you get my drift,ย that you can expect a lot of new content on my blog, content that you’ll and you’re hopefully enjoying! ๐Ÿ˜€

So, a while back Iย attended Elizabeth Arden’s Visible Whitening Blogger event, introducing their ย Visible Whitening Intense Brightening Biocellulose Mask and Visible Whitening Anti-Melanin Spot Corrector.ย 

Photos time!

My review

Elizabeth Arden Visible Whitening Intense Brightening Biocellulose Mask

It was my first time using a Biocellulose mask, and I think that it takes some getting use to. I’m rather accustomed to cotton-type masks and this Biocellulose mask feels like jelly on the skin. The concept of the Biocellulose mask is that it fits onto the facial contours like “second skin”. The feel of the mask is no doubt luxurious. Each box comes with 5 masks and each mask is individually wrapped with key ingredients such as Vitamin A derivative, Vitamin B3, and optical diffusers to help firm and brighten skinโ€™s appearance instantly and with continued use by reducing the appearance of imperfections. In addition, Vitamin C derivative and Lipoamino Acid work to significantly reduce the appearance of existing dark spots and uneven skin tone.

Key Ingredients

ย  Lipoamino Acid and Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) โ€” assist with the appearance of uneven skin tone.

ย Vitamin A Derivative (retinyl linoleate) โ€” Supports skinโ€™s own collagen and elastin matrix to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and enhance skinโ€™s ability to reflect light.

Vitamin C Derivativeโ€” Controls melanin production to help enhance skinโ€™s brightness and diminish darkness over time.

Adenosineโ€” Supports skinโ€™s own natural collagen to reduce visible signs of aging.

Hyaluronic Acid and Barley Extract Complexโ€” Helps to increase skinโ€™s moisture content to minimize the appearance of wrinkles and refine the look of pores.

Licorice Extract โ€“ Helps to inhibit tyrosinase activity to prevent the formation of dark spots and uneven skin tone.

Glycerinโ€” Helps to improve skinโ€™s moisture content.

Mica Minerals and Corn Starchโ€”Optical ingredients able to reflect light to instantly brighten the look of skin and impart immediate radiance.

The suggested usage is 2 masks weekly, for 4 weeks to achieve optimum results. I would recommend this mask for ladies who appreciate a luxurious feel during their mask regime, and/or as a gift for a special woman (mother, wife, girlfriend) to show that you care. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Each box set retails at SGD$90.

Elizabeth Whitening Visible Whitening Biocellulose Mask & Spot Corrector Launch Enabalista 21

Elizabeth Visible Whitening Anti-Melanin Spot Corrector ย aims to target stubborn dark spots and uneven skin tone, reducing their intensity.ย Infused with intensive skin brighteners, such as Vitamin C derivative and an exfoliating agent, pre-existing melanin in the skinโ€™s outer most layer looks diminished and new melanin production is controlled. Due to the exfoliating agent, the spot corrector will result in the dark spot drying and falling off, and it’s not advisable to be scratched off. After testing it out, I personally don’t fancy the product compared to other spot correctors I have used. I feel that it would be better if the spot can be corrected without having to dry and flak off. ๐Ÿ™‚ Maybe the R&D team can take in this suggestion and improve their next formula? ย Each tube comes in 20ml, retails for SGD$110.

Key Ingredients:

Lipoamino Acidโ€”Assists with the appearance of uneven skin tone.

Vitamin C Derivativeโ€” Controls melanin production to help enhance skinโ€™s brightness and diminish darkness over time.

Protease Enzymeโ€”Eliminates dead skin cells to smooth skinโ€™s surface and supports natural cell renewal to help exfoliate surface pigmentation.

Hydrolyzed Soy Protein, Soy Amino Acids and Yeast Extract Blendโ€” Helps maintain skinโ€™s hydration and moisture balance.

Hyaluronic Acidโ€”Helps to hold moisture in skin.ย
