Collection Cosmetics Bright & Glow Tea Party


Hi lovelies~

Are you on the look out for a BB cream that
provides good coverage without feeling heavy on your skin?

Collection Cosmetics recently held a tea party to introduce their
new Bright & Glow Brightening BB Cream & Compact Foundation!

Isn’t the decor for the tea party just beautiful? Carpenter & Cook cafe serves up a mean quiche, one that I would definitely love to go back for, despite it being all the way in the West. The same folks behind Carpenter & Cook are also the brains behind a props, styling & events company Heaven In a Wild Flower. Such quirky names! 🙂

Beautiful Leanne was model of the night and we had a lot of fun playing with the make up and doing a mini-photoshoot of sorts. Thanks to Leanne for all the lovely pics!

And now I’ll leave you with a series of pictures I took after I applied the Collection Cosmetics’ Bright & Glow Brightening BB Cream & Compact Foundation that evening~

~ My Review ~

The pics above were taken with normal lightning and has no filters at all. As you can see, the Collection Cosmetics Bright & Glow BB cream was very effective in covering the blemishes on my face. I’ve used it for several days and I really like that the BB cream is lightweight while providing good coverage, does not clog my pores and does not cause a break out. *double thumbs up* It’s safe for oily/combination skin types. PLUS they also last all day. I use the BB cream in 02 (medium to dark) and compact foundation in 02 Ivory.

The BB cream contains mineral pigments that evens out skin tone and conceals imperfection. The formula is further enhanced with Vitamin E and Sodium Hyaluronate, to keep the skin hydrated, as well as Vitamin C contained in light reflective powders to create a brightening effect for an all day glow. It also contains SPF30, protecting skin against UVB rays. The BB cream is specially formulated for Asian skin (despite Collection Cosmetics being a UK cosmetic brand, shows that they’re SERIOUS about entering the Asian market!) and is available in 2 shades, Light-Medium and Medium to Dark. Retails at $16.90 for 30 ml each.

The Bright & Glow Brightening Compact Foundation is made from smooth particles, creating a radiant look without clogging pores. Rich in pigments and mineral powder to even out skin tone and conceal blemishes, it also contains an oil control powder.  After application of the BB cream, the powder helps to set the cream for a longer lasting finish. It’s great for areas such as the forehead, nose and jaw line areas where you want to minimize the shine, but do keep the cheeks untouched/un-powdered for that dewy look. 😉 It is available in 4 shades: Vanilla, Ivory, Almond and Honey, retails at $18.90 each.

I personally think that the BB cream is good for a stand-a-lone product & I would definitely recommended it. For the more conscientious girls, you might want to buy both and bring the compact powder with you for touch ups in the mid day or after work  before you head out for an event or a party. 😉

Collection Cosmetics is available at selected Watsons stores, BHG (Bugis) and their own pop-up store in Cineleisure level 2.

As Featured on Cosmopolitan Magazine April’s Make Me Awesome

Guess who’s on Cosmo’s Make Me Over feature this month?

Yes, it’s yours truly! 😉

The make up brand feature of the month is Givenchy,
a designer brand famous for its edgy looks and chic street wear interpretations.

The shoot took place last month and I’m glad that the pictures came out nicely! 🙂

And… I’m 24, not 26 (apparently you need to be 26 for the make-over)
and they didn’t tell me that when they asked me if I’d like to be featured! 😛

Go purchase this edition if you haven’t! You can check out their e-sampler here. 🙂

The day that I went down for the shoot, I also collected the Cosmo Beauty Grand Prix box that I won (I’m a blessed gal, I know!)

2014-03-09 12.21.34 2014-03-09 12.25.24

There was also a Phyto night hair serum, but I gave it away to a friend, a girl’s (that’s me, yes) has only 1 head of hair!  I also haven’t tried the L’Oreal leave in spray above cause I’ve been using my L’Oreal EverStrong Thickening hair products. 😛

2014-03-09 12.27.50

I’ve been using this Bio Therm Pure-fect Skin Anti-Perfection Targeted Solutions and I really like it!
I apply it at night and day on my acne spots and the recovery is remarkable. The solution is liquid and lightweight and has a hint of herb scent. I’ve tried a set of Bio Therm travel set and I love their aqua/water based products that is really great for sensitive skin especially in Singapore’s hot and humid weather!

Thank you Cosmo for the make-over! :*

Crabtree & Evelyn Pear & Pink Magnolia

 In the thick of Spring,
what can be better than to smell the mix of fruity pear and floral magnolia?

2014-03-13 10.03.03How cute are the pears, right? 🙂

The scent is indeed true to its name and just as it sounds.
A sweet feminine blend of pear and pink magnolia.

It’s my current favourite scent as a spritz in the morning will make me feel like
I’m walking out to a garden of florals and pear trees blossoming around me.
It definitely sets me right for the day in a happy cheery mood! 😉

The hand cream is ultra-moisturizing,
I recommend application on the back of your hands to keep your back fingers and hands hydrated in air-con,
without greasing your inner hand and fingers. 😉

Eau de Toilette retail price: S$38 for 30ml and S$75 for 100ml.
Ultra Moisturising Hand Therapy S$13 for 25g and S$33 for 100g.

Porcelain, The Face Spa ‘Of Snow & Ice’ Bloggers’ Event & Skincare Review

Porcelain, The Face Spa recently introduced their Cryotherapy Facial
at a beautiful bar and restaurant, Horses’ Mouth @ Forum Shopping mall.

Also check out the video of the event night!

The night was sublime.
The food, drinks, presentation, demonstration and company was amazing.

Valerie Lim was the host of the night and it was lovely meeting the young and capable managing director of Porcelain, the Face Spa, Pauline Ng. Not forgetting to mention the band Char Siew Baos were really good live performers crooning to the melodies of the night.

Porcelain the Face Spa started out in 2009, and believes in foundation free skin.
In 2013, they won the Best Beauty Spa in Asia at the prestigious World Luxury Spa Awards.
In addition to bringing in new facial machines and treatments, they have also formulated their own line of skincare products.

Porcelain Face Spa Blogger Event Porcelain Face Spa Blogger Event Products Porcelain Face Spa Blogger Event Pore SerumTheir star product, the Porcelain Flawless Pore and Spot Intensive Serum.

It is non-comodogenic (non pore clogging) and paraben (preservatives) free, ingredients consisting of Vitamin C, CoQ10 and Sodium Hyaluronate, it is designed for the following 6 benefits:
1. Pore refining
2. Moisturizing
3. Skin Brightening
4. Anti-aging
5. Improved skin tone and elasticity
6. Lightened dark spots and soothed wrinkles

After using this product for 1+week, I am loving it very much.
I use it after toner, apply 3-4 drops on my face. It is extremely hydrating which a thick water base gel-like consistency (thanks to the CoQ10 which also targets wrinkle treatment). When applied on the face it takes a minute of massage and patting for the serum to fully absorb into the skin.

Application in the morning keeps the face hydrated throughout the day and application in the night keeps my face fresh and hydrated when I am awake. Definitely recommended and safe for oily and combination skin types. If you’re just starting out with serums and you’re looking for a safe and hydrating serum (versus the nourishing serums which may be too enriching for young and/or sensitive skin), I would suggest this.

Priced at $41 for 8ml, it can last for 3 weeks. Product has to be finished within 3 weeks upon opening.
$164 for 40ml.

For more information, booking and prices of Porcelain, the Face Spa’s Cryotherapy treatment, visit their page here.

Thanks Porcelain, the Face Spa for the beautiful evening and sample products! 😉

Vanity Trove’s Get Snap Blingo Project Launch Party

Vanity Trove, a community to share & discover beauty recently had a Get Snap Blingo launch party at Zouk.

Here’s photos of what went down~ ^^

Let me just say that the food was ridiculously generous. It kinda helped that I was there early. 😀  The noteworthy desserts are pastries and macarons(or macaroons? :P) by Cremeberry and Push & Pop Cakes Emicakes. I tried the strawberry flavour and there’s real strawberry chunks (yes, chunks) and the cake is soft and the creme is rich, the way I like it! Who knew Push & Pop cakes could be SO DELICIOUS?   >.<  Speaking of which, do you know that Emicakes are famous for their durian cake? They use to have one at Marine Parade and my church friends and I would often buy cakes from there, years back. Ok, maybe just me buying cakes and indulging. Oops. OK… getting back to topic here…

Depending on what phone you use, download VanityTrove’s new app on iTunes here and GooglePlay here.
You can find me “@EnaTeo” and follow me there if you have an account. 😉 Check out my web profile here.
If you want to know why you need another photo-sharing app (isn’t Instagram enough?) on your mobile, the reasons I can think of are:
1. Good for stalking beauties that like to talk about beauty
2. Brand Promotions / Giveaways
Yes, you can do so on Instagram too, but VanityTrove has some brand engagements exclusive to their app. 🙂

If you’d like to read more about VanityTrove tech news, I recommend this Yahoo piece and these on TechInAsia.
Yes, in addition to being a lifestyle blogger, marketing enthusiast, I am also quite a #techgeek. Not extremely knowledgeable, but let’s just say I follow TechInAsia on Facebook. That makes me quite geeky, right? LOL. #GeekIsTheNewCool #IKnowHashTagsDontWorkOnWordPressButIJustDoItAnyways 😛

There were also Benefit and LO’real booths, both of which are brands I’ve blogged about just recently! Coincidence much? 😛 I got to be pampered at the Benefit booth but the queue was too long for L’Oreal’s. >.<

Benefit Cosmetics @ Westgate Mall Opening Launch

Are you a fan of Benefit Cosmetics, the brand with
new old school quirky packaging and hails from San Francisco, California?

If you are, and you stay in the West of Singapore,
you’ll be glad to know that they’ve recently opened an outlet at Jurong East, Westgate Mall! 😉

Here’s photos from the grand opening! 🙂

It was such a pleasure meeting Youtubers Hirzi&Munah of MunahHirziOfficial, Miranda
and the awesome & fun team; ladyboss as Simone (Benefit’s resident cover gal!), Amber as Rocker Gal, Constance as Ultra Radiance! Definitely one of the most entertaining, well dressed and fun beauty parties I’ve attended! ^^

Check out Miranda’s blog post of the same event here. 🙂

Here’s what in the goodie bag~

Benefit Fragrance Under My Spell

Benefit Fragrance Under My Spell Noelle, an intense, sultry & mysterious scent.

Top notes: cardamom, black pepper, lingonberry
Middle notes: wild orchid, jasmine petals, vanilla flower, fresh rose, soft violet
Bottom notes: patchouli, accord oud, black amber, vanilla beans, benzoin resin, raspberry
Info. from their website here.

Benefit Cosmetics EnabalistaTesters for Gimme-Brow Brow Brush, They’re Real Mascara & Porefessional Pro Pore Balm (that’s oil-free, yay!).

I’ve tried the mascara, the nice make up expert “doctor” in the lab coat at the beauty counter created very pretty lashes for me.
The formulation is lightweight and buildable, creating realistic and longer lashes. Will test out these babies for my #LOTD looks on my instagram, be sure to follow me @ena_teo! 🙂

Benefit Lollitint

Another product that I tried, the Benefit Lollitint is surprisingly something I like.
This product is meant for your lips as well as your cheeks! The same “doctor” freshened my look at Vanity Trove’s GSB event (which I’ll be blogging about soon) in this purple pink colour and I love the look. Surprisingly the Lollitint is velvety on the lips, and dries smoothly on the lips. The pigmentation is quite strong, thus lasts long, on the lips and the cheeks. The only concern I have is that the application isn’t very friendly in the sense that it might not be very hygienic to apply the product on the lips with the applicator and then proceed to dap some on the cheeks to spread out. So I reckon if I do get this, I might use one exclusively for the lips!

Majolica Majorca & Ma Chérie Floral Enchantress Blogger Event

Have I told you how much I like Majolica Majorca products?

Oh yes I have, I shall quite egoistically quote myself here. 😛

"I love this brand for its fantasy concept… It’s so beautiful lah! *^^* "
 - Ena Teo, Blogger of Enabalista.com

the quote is taken from my previous post, about the Matsuri Day Beauty workshop I attended previously. 🙂

It’s always a pleasure to attend Shishedo events because the team always put in so much creativity & personalization, creating a magical and exciting atmosphere. ^^

This time, it’s the Majolica Majorca x Ma Chérie Floral Enchantress Bloggers’ Event~

At the last ZA event, bloggers were introduced to a reading of “My Lip Personality” based on their lip shape. This time, we got a reading of our Hair, Lips & Eyes character, based on what our favourite styles were! Majolica Majorca x Ma Cherie Floral Enchantress Blogger Event Enabalista 9 Majolica Majorca x Ma Cherie Floral Enchantress Blogger Event Enabalista 8

This game required us to pitch the “crystal” balls through the holes in order to win beauty goodies. On a side note, another of their fun fact says “The World’s first ever cosmetics were created from copper and lead ore by ancient Egyptians” Lead cause poisoning! Aren’t we glad that technology has improved thus far so that we can actually have safe beauty products? >.<

My eye, hair & lip character reading:

The Sweet Surrender
You’re a combination of sugar & spice, but the twist is your sweetness is the mystery.

The Delectable Mist
You are a motivated & career oriented girl but when the time comes, you can still be playful & cheeky.

The Tantalize Caress
You wear your heart on your sleeve, but your sweetness & soft nature wins the hearts of many.

I think the reading is really quite generic except for the hair reading. HAHA. I am really a motivated and career oriented girl and can be playful when I want to be!

Most recently, Ma Chérie has introduced their refill packs to the market, which is great because it’s environmentally friendly and returning customers get the same amount of goodness at a lower cost! Yay!

The Secret of Ma Chérie’s products is their Champagne Honey Gelee which is a formulation that protects hair from oxidative stress (I wiki-ed to read what it’s about, simply put it means damage to cells from the outside environment…), retains moisture, softens and adds shine to hair. For the specific ingredients and function breakdown you can read from the image above. 😉

Ma Chérie has two range:

1. Air Feel
for volume and shine to fine hair

2. Moisture
for silky lingering smoothness that treats dry ends

L’Oreal Paris Bloggers’ Event & New EverStrong Thickening Hair & Scalp System Review

Hi lovelies~

I hope you’re enjoying your weekend, like I am~ ^^

A few weeks back, I attended the L’Oreal Paris Hair Bloggers’ Event. Today I’m gonna blog about the event and my reviews of their products from the new range, EVERSTRONG Thickening Sulfate Free Hair & Scalp system. 😉

The bloggers’ event was held at Lime House, 2 Jiak Chuan Road, an in-road from Keong Saik Street.
Heading back there brought back a flood of memories because Keong Saik Street was where I started my first job after JC. The place has changed quite a bit, lesser dingy pubs and more classy restaurants catering to tourists and expats. But it still has that old school charm. I would definitely head back and explore this place again.
The finger food and beverages were just right to feed our empty bellies before the presentation started. After the presentation, we had the chance to have our scalp tested and put our creatively to good use for some floral arrangement!

I love floral arrangements because I love flowers, the beauty they embody and the sweet scent they bring. I also like how floral arrangement allows for relaxation, creativity of expression and zen moments.

Quite coincidentally, the florist L’Oreal invited, Christopher, is the same florist that I learnt floral arrangement from back when I was in JC, so as to enter a floral arrangement competition! 🙂

It was such a pleasure to meet with lovely Leanne at the event who’s always such a dear. Check out her beauty focused instagram @loveforskincare. I am a huge fan of her collages, as they display great use of light and unique eye for aesthetics. <3

~My Review~

I’ve been using L’Oreal Paris EVERSTRONG Thickening sulfate free hair & scalp system for a few weeks now. I can attest that this range of shampoo, conditioner and tonic does a smashing job in fortifying thinning hair and purifying the scalp. I recently had my hair cut as I was finding long hair tough to manage and also getting worried when my hair was dropping quite drastically. I would get a lot of hair dropping whenever I showered and combing my then long hair. However, after getting my hair cut and starting on this hair care range, my hair has thankfully thickened back to normal and my hair loss has decreased. I no longer react to “omg so much hair dropped” in the shower and when I’m combing hair. Even a hair stylist commented just this weekend when I was getting my hair ends curled at a beauty event that I have thick hair, which made me happy! ^^

I am thoroughly loving this hair care range of EVERSTRONG Thickening sulfate free hair shampoo, conditioner and tonic. The shampoo cleanses well, the conditioner does not leave an artificial waxy after feel but rather conditions naturally. This range is unique with their two star ingredients; Rosemary & Mint. Rosemary helps to stimulate hair growth, soothes dry, sensitive scalp and prevents dandruff. While Mint is a well known scalp and follicle stimulant. Using these products in the shower brings a very refreshing feel and scent to my hair and sense. I am very satisfied even long after my shower, knowing how well my hair is cleansed, cared and how good it smells. 😀

Unlike most tonic, this tonic is unique in that it is formulated to be used at the hair roots, to be massaged into your scalp. It is liquid and non oily. I use one spritz and massage from the top of my head and outwards.

Perhaps the only downside to this range of products is that you have to use all three shampoo, conditioner and tonic together to achieve the full desired effect. I always use shampoo and conditioner together (whether with this range or not) because each product has different functions and I tend to have frizzy hair, so conditioner is a must. However my sister commented that when she use the shampoo without the conditioner, her hair and scalp tend to be too drying.

L’Oreal Paris Thickening Shampoo and Conditioner retails at $14.90 for 250ml each, Tonic at $29.90 for 100ml at supermarkets, pharmacies and departmental stores islandwide. I’ve done the math for you, the whole system will cost $59.70. 😉

L'Oreal Paris EverStrong Extraodinary Oil Singapore Enabalista Review

L’Oreal Paris Extraordinary Oil is just as it is named. It is really a superb product. The difference when I apply it on my hair ends compared to when I don’t (on days when I am lazy or in a rush to get out) is remarkable. I do not have a habit of applying hair oil as I tend to find it a hassle and don’t like to have to wash my hands again before I head out. But after using this product, I am now convinced that I have found the solution to frizzy hair and I have found the secret to beautiful hair. I know this sounds damn exaggerating and dramatic, but I kid you not. The reason behind the powers of this oil is due to its flower extracts ingredients: Flax, Tiare, Rose, Lotus, Chamomile and Matricaria. The best part is, the new formulation now comes with UV filter protection, keeping your hair protected from harmful and drying UV rays, keeping it luscious.

Another reason why this hair oil is extraordinary is because its usage is mani-fold. You can use it before you colour your hair, the night before, so that your hair is deeply nourished and well-prepped for colour treatment so that your hair will not be left dry and brittle. Before blow drying. Mix it with your hair mask and as a finishing touch.

I use it as a finishing touch, while my hair is still wet and before blow drying. Just one spritz is sufficient for my whole head’s hair ends and when my hair is dry, it’s smooth and straight the entire day.

L’Oreal Paris Extraordinary Oil retails at $26.90 for 100ml at supermarkets, pharmacies and departmental stores islandwide.


If you want to experience this range of products, L’Oreal is now offering travel size products for you to use and take on their 30 day challenge. Find out how to redeem their products on their Facebook here. Valid for Singapore residents only.

Sothys Dark Circle Eraser (Concealer)

It’s definitely recommended to apply the multi action lotion (just a little of the lotion goes a long way)
to prep the skin and to smooth wrinkles out before the treating concealer goes on.

I tried it out for a day and it’s a little too nourishing for my skin as my skin tends to get oily throughout the day.
However I would recommend this for ladies whose eyes are dry and need a “perk me up” eye regime.
I’ll be gifting/passing this small kit to my mum for her use. 🙂

April Boulevard Japanese Masks Review

Hi lovelies~

Don’t you love a good mask after a day’s of work, just to relax in before you rest for the night?

Well, I know that I do! ^^

Thanks to April Boulevard, I’ve been able to enjoy the pleasure of a good mask nightly for many weeks now!

April Boulevard is a local Singapore company that brings in Japanese masks not yet found in Singapore.
They believe that quality masks does not necessarily need to come with a hefty price tag.
The masks are made of 100% Japanese cotton and suitable for daily use.  They are also infused with high tech beauty essence and are consistently top ranked in Japan’s ultra competitive domestic market.
With product prices ranging from $23.90 to $34.90 for a month’s supply (each box comes in a pack of 30 sheets),
April Boulevard is proud to boast that no other product on the local shelves comes close in terms of pricing for the quality of masks offered.

April Boulevard sent me 3 of their best sellers for review:

Such a sweet note from them! ^^

The formula for these daily masks are not as potent or concentrated as the weekly masks.
Thus they are meant for daily maintenance and can be used / replacement for moisturizers at night.
One may choose to apply moisturizers after the masks, if one feels the skin requires.

Leave mask on for 10-15 minutes. No washing required after application.

Their best selling masks are:

April Boulevard Japanese Skincare Review

1. SPC Japan Snail Mask
Though snail essence is not new to Japan’s skincare industry,
this ingredient is only starting to gain popularity in Singapore.
The mask is great for treating dull skin as snail secretion helps regenerates the skin cells.
Available online here.

~My review~
The mask itself is colourless, scentless and fragrance-less.
After using this masks continuously for a few days, my skin feels hydrated and smoother.
The effect is also visible and retained after a night’s rest.
This formula feels slightly richer / more nourishing when compared to the other two masks.
The cutting of the mask is slightly off compared to the other two Japan Gals masks.
It might affect me as my face is slightly smaller than usual. But I don’t have an issue for the Japan Gal masks. 🙂

April Boulevard Japanese Skincare Review
2.  Japan Gals 
Pure 5 Essence (Hyaluronic Acid)
Hyaluronic Acid is well known for its intense hydration effect on the skin.
This range is superb for those with sensitive skin as it has no alcohol content.
Available online here.

~My review~
I am a fan of hyaluronic acid skincare products, whether it’s in moisturizers or lip gels as it keeps my skin
that much more hydrated by locking the moisture in for a longer period of time.
After use, my skin is visibly refreshed and more supple.
The mask has a refreshing and light aqua scent, which may appeal to those who love aqua-based products.

April Boulevard Japanese Skincare Review

3. Japan Gals VC+Nano-C mask
VC stands for Vitamin C and Nano-C stands for nano collagen.
These are the 2 key ingredients for this mask. There are no artificial colouring, fragrance and mineral oil.
It has anti-aging, whitening and hydrating functions all in one mask.
Hence this is a favourite among  April Boulevard’s customers.
Available here.

~My review~
Vitamin C is known for its many positive effects of boosting restoration
as well as lightening blemishes and whitening to one’s original skin tone.
Nano-C helps to retain and firm one’s collagen in the skin.
After use, my skin is hydrated and fairer.
I can’t attest to the anti-aging aspect cause I haven’t used it for super long and plus my skin is still young. (Cue awkward smile.)
Nonetheless, it’s hard to top a mask that has hydrating, whitening and anti-aging functions.
Even if I can’t see the anti-aging effect, it’s like an added bonus to the other two functions.
This is my favourite mask of the 3! 🙂

I like the Japan Gals masks as the quality is good in terms of the cotton, cut as well as the essence used.
Also the packaging is super pretty for the VC+Nano-C mask, so you can also consider buying it as a gift. 😉
I think girls always love receiving masks as gifts cause you can never have enough
and they can always be kept for use in the future (not to long away).

HABA Japanese Non-Additive Skincare Review


Today I’ll be reviewing a set of products from HABA, a Japanese skincare and beauty line. ^^

HABA Skincare Review

HABA the brand, is an acronym which stands for Health Aid Beauty Aid.
HABA believes in beauty from the inside out:
that the right skincare and healthcare will lead to a better life.

HABA also desires for their users to experience a Non-Additive mindset,
which originates from Hokkaido, Japan.

What is unique about HABA is that it boasts to be:
Mineral Oil Free
Artificial Colourant Free
Artificial Fragrance Free
Petrochemical Surfactant Free

These are common additives (aka preservatives) in many brands’ products
that can cause skin irritation and allergic reactions.
Instead, HABA uses ingredients such as sasa kurilensis water (bamboo extract) which acts as a preservative, contains antibacterial properties and helps to keep the skin moisturized. (Is that why bamboo juice is so refreshing on a hot summer day?!). HABA only uses ingredients that are safe  and healthy for the skin.

Enabalista HABA Skincare Review

Weeks back, I was invited down for a mini facial and skincare treatment at the HABA Suntec outlet.

The skincare treatment consists of the items which I also brought back for use to review.

The regime is as such:

HABA Micro Force Cleansing Review

1) Cleanse
with HABA’s Micro Force Cleansing
2 in 1 make up remover and cleanser

I pump 1-2 times on my cotton pad and wipe away my makeup.
Then I will gently cleanse my face with water.

After using this to remove my make up, it also cleanses my skin, so technically it saves me one step!
That said, however I still use a gentle cleanser in the shower. 😛

I love this water based cleanser as it is very hydrating and moderate in consistency,
much like a water based lotion and cleanses gently as much as  thoroughly.

HABA White Lady Whitening Serum Review

2) Special Care
with HABA’s best selling whitening serum, White Lady

I use 1 pump for my entire (small) face.
Pump generously into your palm for how much you require,
and gently pat on your face with your fingers.

This serum is developed from a doctor’s formula,
contains sasa kurilensis water (bamboo extract) and vitamin C,
it is moisturizing, antiseptic and has sterilizing effects.
The serum is light weight and is liquid in consistency.

HABA VC Whitening Healing Toner Review

3) Moisturize with
HABA’s VC lotion, whitening toner

Apply VC Lotion by patting lightly on the skin with both hands.
HABA encourages ladies to apply this toner 5 times during each use.
This way, the product can fully penetrate the skin, leaving it refreshed and supple.

I was quite amazed at why I was never previously educated on this method,
it does make a lot of sense since toner bottles always come in such big bottles and take forever to finish.
That said, it’s still important to check and follow the recommended dosage for different brands
as not all toners are formulated in the same way. 🙂

VC lotion is a moisturizing alcohol free toner infused with Vitamin C derivative
which can penetrate the skin better and is non irritating to the skin.
It also contains Ceramide nanosome which
helps to keep moisture levels in your skin for a longer time.

HABA Squalane Beauty Oil Review

4) Protect 
with HABA’s Squalane

With hands and face still moist from toner lotion,
apply one drop of Squalane on your moist hands,
spread the Squalane on your palms and press them gently on your moist face.

This is also one of HABA’s best selling products.
Extracted from deep sea shark’s liver oil, this is the same oil
that is in our skin that created a protective film to retain hydration.

After using this set for weeks in the morning and evening, I feel that my skin is pampered and properly hydrated. I would definitely recommend this to ladies who are looking for natural skin care products, for hydrated and supple skin, especially in dry weather. 

The prices of the featured products are as such:
– Micro Force Cleansing (Makeup Remover) 120ml, S$46
– White Lady (Whitening Serum) 30ml, $78
– VC Lotion 180ml, S$85
– Squalane (Beauty Oil), 15ml $29
I’ve been using these products for about 3 weeks now,
and I approximate that these will last for 3 months.

2014-02-25 00.28.36

5) Moist White Beauty Drink 
A fresh, crisp beauty drink that contains Haskap (blueberry honeysuckle),
a fruit that is coveted for its powerful whitening and anti-aging properties.
It also includes collagen, ceramidea and L-Cystine
which helps to enhance skin clarity and firmness.
Each bottle contains 3,000mg of collagen and on 21 calories per bottle. 🙂

The taste is sweet, smooth and I love the blueberry flavour.
I only got to try 1 bottle, so I can’t attest to it’s longer term effect.
Also, as I am also in my early 20s I don’t (yet) have to worry about collagen loss.
Altho’ I’m quite sure when the time comes (another 5-10 years) I’ll start collagen intake regularly
as it’s been said that collagen drink works wonders for your skin! 😉
$49/box (of 10 bottles).

ION Esthe II Review

When I was in their store, I als got to try their Ion My Esthe II,
a home esthetic treatment device that cleanses and treats your skin with the power of ion.
It performs two basic function in two modes:
Ion Cleansing Mode and Ion Care Mode.

I tried their  Ion Care Mode as such:
Apply 8-10 pumps of White Lady Serum on face
Soak a face sheet with VC Lotion
Put the mask on face and slowly roll on Ion My Esthe II on my face
At approximately 8 minutes, a beeping sound will go off to indicate that the treatment is done.
Remove the mask and apply lotion Squalane on your face.
It is recommended to perform Ion Care Mode twice a week
and Ion Cleanse Mode once a week for maximum results.

I am quite amazed at how ION treatment works, in the sense that I am unsure how it works.:P
(Maybe my learned chemical engineering sister can tell me how?)
It’s also hard for me to say how effective it is as I’ve only tried it once.
However I can attest that it’s definitely safe, it uses our/my own body’s ION power to
charge this instrument. Cool huh?!
That’s one of the reason why I love being a blogger!
Getting acquainted and to be able to try new and cool
beauty products and treatments to share on my blog. ^^
Given the chance, I would definitely love to try using it for a longer period. 🙂

 The Ion My Esthe II (Facial Instrument) costs $350.

HABA also has make up products, which I had the pleasure to try during my visit.
Their make up products are light and feels very natural
and also creates a very Japanese look, in my opinion.
If you’re a fan of natural/non-additive products, do give their make up range a try. 🙂

Human Nature Hair Care, Body Care & Make Up Review

Hi guys!

Are you an organic skincare and beauty lover? If so, today’s post will be super relevant for you!

If you’re not, fret not, cause it’s still good to know more about this affordable organic brand, Human Nature! 😉

Human Nature started out in Philippines in 2008 with the vision to be one of Philippines’ leading social enterprises, they have two goals, which is 1) Sustainable Living for the Poor and to be 2) Faithful Stewards of our Only Planet. Find out more about how they achieve these meaningful goals on their site here.

Recently Christine from Human Nature Singapore reached out to me through email to review their products, after a few email exchanges, a box of products was promptly sent over. I took a few weeks to test and review the products, and here it is! 🙂

Human Nature Natural Products Review

If you prefer to watch me sharing on video, hit play! 😉

Human Nature Natural Moisturizing Shampoo Conditioner Review

Human Nature Natural Moisturizing Shampoo (left) and Conditioner (right) in Mandarin Fresh.
Available here and here.
My shampoo was just about to run out and I was wondering what other brand I would try next,
so I was certainly glad to receive these two lovely products. I love the tangy zesty smell of the shampoo and how it cleanses gently and effectively. The conditioner has organic virgin coconut oil which is an age old secret for beautifully shiny, deeply moisturized hair, which I LOVE. After usage, my long hair is smooth and tangle free!

Human Nature 100% Natural Hand and Foot Salve

Human Nature 100% Natural Hand & Foot Salve in Strawberry.
Available here.
The difference between a salve and a lotion is that salve aids healing. Thus this salve soothes and softens dry and cracked skin. Luckily for me, my hands and legs are rather smooth, so I can’t exactly bear testament to its effectiveness for what it’s touted for. But what I can say, is that does leave a residual grease after application which will be less apparent after 10 min. I would recommend this, if you have cracked skin, between your toes or on the ball or heel of your feet. Apply it just before you sleep and I trust that your skin will be better.

Human Nature Natural Hydrating Mineral Lipstick Review

Human Nature Natural Hydrating Mineral Lipsticks; Lucky in Love (left) & First Kiss (right).

Human Nature Natural Hydrating Mineral Lipstick First Kiss ReviewHuman Nature Natural Hydrating Mineral Lipstick First Kiss Review 2

Human Nature Natural Hydrating Mineral Lipstick in First Kiss
Available here.
I definitely love how pigmented the color is. True to its name, it’s hydrating and that must be because of it’s formulation with an extra dose of cocoa butter added to passion fruit seed oil and sunflower oil. The result is a natural and healthy looking lips. I wore it to work and I love how it does not dry up my lips, which some lipstick do. I have also previously used an organic lip balm with cocoa butter, so I know I love the ingredient in this as it’s good for my lips.

Human Nature Natural Hydrating Mineral Lipstick Lucky in Love ReviewHuman Nature Natural Hydrating Mineral Lipstick Lucky in Love Review 2

Human Nature Natural Hydrating Mineral Lipstick in Lucky in Love
Available here.
Lucky in Love is a deep red colour which has a slight gloss effect because of the hydrating effect of the lipstick. It would be ideal for a date night when you are looking to have plump or luscious red lips.

Human Nature Sunflower Cleansing Oil

Human Nature Sunflower Cleansing Oil
Available here.
This is a very effective cleansing oil, which is in my opinion ideal for heavier duty make up removal. If you’re like me and you tend to veer away from oil based cleansers, than this might not be ideal. It would be suitable for days when you’re attending a formal or glam event with full on mascara, eyeliner, foundation in layers… you get my drift. Or perhaps you’re a stage performer and you’re looking for something natural, gentle on your skin while effectively and quickly removing your thick makeup. This, my friends, would be it.;)

If you want to buy their products, be sure to key in ENA15 before check out to enjoy 15% off on ALL products!
This is valid till this Sunday, 9 March, so don’t wait! 😉

That is all for my Human Nature review! 🙂

Thanks for reading, love you.<3



Helenere Skincare Cream & Mask Review

Hi lovelies!

I’ve been using Helenere, Swiss skincare brand products for some time now and here’s a video review!

If you prefer to read, instead of watching my video review, here’s a quick summary:

Before I received the invitation to review their products,
I did a quick google search and found out from Cozycot forum  that
ladies wanted to know where they could buy Helenere products in Singapore.
So I was convinced that Helenere products must be really good and I was eager to try the products for myself!

Just in case you don’t know the brand, Helenere is a Swiss skincare brand started by Helen Rosato Rossi in 1980s.
Their products are all made in Switzerland and they have a strong emphasis on R&D.
Helenere has built a strong reputation of being a skincare brand that knows,
understands and addresses women’s skincare issues which is why it is gaining increasing popularity across the globe.

Helenere Whitening Cream Review 2

Helenere White Perfection Day & Night Cream
available online here.

2014-02-25 00.22.52

Cream is pure white and moderately thick in consistency. (No filter and no flash)2014-02-25 00.21.28

Once spread out evenly, it is leaves a very light white layer that is almost colorless to the naked eye.(No filter and no flash)

After using it for two weeks, I’m really loving this cream. I use it twice daily,
in the morning and in the evening, after my shower routine.
In the day, I use it after my toner and moisturizer, just before my sunscreen lotion.
In the evening, I use it after my toner and moisturizer.

After two weeks of use, I feel that my skin has lightened,
and this cream has helped to tone my oil glands so that my face is not as oily as before.
I have used other day/night creams previously but those were generally oily in nature
and I would stop using them after one try.

However this cream is moist without being oily, and
is really a suitable cream for people who have oily and acne prone skin like me!
Definitely recommended if you’re looking for a good day and night whitening/lightening cream in your beauty regime!

Helenere Purifying Pack

Helenere Purifying Pack
available online here.

2014-02-25 00.14.08

A very light mint green colour and thick consistency.

2014-02-25 00.14.35

A visible light pale layer when spread thinly across the skin.

I have used this pack/mask twice so far. As it is named, this mask aims to purify your skin.
To use, spread a thin layer around your face for 20 min and wash away with tepid/lukewarm water.
After which, I feel that my skin is softer and smoother. Recommended for use 1-2 times a week.
I would especially recommend this mask for people whose skin is exposed to harsher conditions such as strong sun
or dirt as this mask would definitely pamper your skin. 🙂 

Thanks to Helenere for their kind sponsorship of the products!

Get Pretty with Mary Kay Make-up Workshop

Just before Chinese New Year, at the invitation of Wendy,
my girlfriends and I visited Mary Kay’s office in Tanjong Pagar for a make up workshop!

Here’s some photos, my favourite products and review from the session! 😉

Enabalista with YL Mary Kay

With YL pre workshop session!
My skin was honestly in bad condition that day, after a breakout.

Before the makeup demonstration and workshop, we indulged in a little skin care pampering session.

Enabalista Mary Kay Workshop Review

Here, YL, Belle and I had half our face slathered with Mary Kay’s Botanical Mask.
So we could tell the effect comparing to our non-masked half!
Don’t we look like we have dramatic masks on? 😀

Drama Masks

Enabalista Mary Kay Review Favourite Products

Mary Kay TimeWise Replenishing Serum and Botanical Mask
These are my favourite Mary Kay products from the workshop. 🙂
The serum preps the skin before the mask and after the mask application, the skin is fresher and clearer.

After prepping the skin and cleaning off the mask, it’s time for makeup demonstration!

Thanks Wendy for inviting us! 🙂

Close up and unfiltered photos, post make up!

With Mary Kay concealer, primer, foundation, loose powder, eyebrow pencil, blusher and
eyeshadow in pink, orange and gold to suit the auspicious chinese new year occasion!
Mary Kay lipstick colours are also very lovely and pigmented.
On my lips are a mix of  TrueDimension lipstick in Color Me Coral and Wild About Pink.
I really really like this look on my girlfriends and I!

Enabalista Mary Kay Mission Statement

My girlfriends and I enjoyed the session and we agreed that the session was made more enjoyable because we
had each other’s company while we pampered ourselves with skincare and picked up make up techniques.
I actually think this is an excellent idea for a girls’ gathering! Plus, Juliana is a great make up coach and
she made us feel very relaxed and at ease with her bright smile and cheerful personality. 🙂

Mary Kay is a unique skincare and beauty brand in the sense that it doesn’t have a brick and mortar shop,
instead their products are sold by women, started  by Mary Kay Ash in America and is now in Asia.
Mary Kay Beauty Consultants start by going through the workshop and training themselves
they are certified trainers and enlist other women into their own teams
that sell and train other women in skincare and make up.
Pretty much like real estate or insurance agents but in the world and field of beauty!
I love the concept of women empowering other women and making their passion a living.

My girlfriends and I are planning to head back for workshop two where we pick up how to create “Smokey eye effect”.
If you would like to arrange for a Mary Kay workshop session for you and your girlfriends,
email Wendy, wenyip516 @ gmail.com (without the gaps)!
I’m also thinking of arranging for a session for my blog readers to attend Mary Kay’s workshop,
so keep a look out for that! 😉
