OSEA Natural Skincare Range

Hi Loves!

Are you a fan of natural skincare? Then you’ll be happy to know about OSEA Natural Skincare Range which I will be reviewing in this blog post! OSEA is an acronym for Ocean Sun Earth Atmosphere and founded by Jenefer Palmer, she created OSEA in tribute to her family’s holistic healing practices and belief that nature heals the body permanently and is quite popular with celebrities in the USA. You can read more about her interview with Urbanette here.

Thanks to Helen of Pure Tincture for sending me these 5 products from the OSEA Natural Skincare range:

OSEA Natural Skincare Blogger Review 003OSEA’s Ocean Cleanser, Sea Minerals (Toner), Atmosphere Protection Cream, Vitamin Sea Serum & Black Algae Mask.
OSEA Natural Skincare Blogger Review 002Beginning the skincare range would be OSEA’s Ocean Cleanser. This is my favourite product amongst the range as I love the scent of this cleanser which has a lemon-y/citrus-y scent that smells oh-so-refreshing! This cleanser is suitable for dry, normal & combination skin types, free of chemical surfactants and great for light makeup removal. Also pH balanced.
OSEA Natural Skincare Blogger Review 005 Next in the range is OSEA’s Sea Minerals Mist. This product is formulated to be an ideal delivery system for healing nutrients and antioxidants, Sea Minerals promotes skin’s natural ability to absorb moisture and oxygenate. USDA certified organic Patagonian seaweed extracts and Dead Sea Crystals provide a thorough therapeutic mineral treatment. Helps restore mineral balance to sun-damaged skin and reduces redness, tightness and inflammation. A quick spritz helps seal makeup against humidity. This toner is known to be a moisture rich, refreshing toner that is especially great for those who’s been exposed under the sun, like after a day at the beach. I recommend this toner for dry, combination and sun-damaged skin. What I don’t like about this toner is the green colour which looks artificial and odd, however considering this range is all natural, I accrue the green colour to the Patagonian seaweed extracts and Dead Sea Crystals.OSEA Natural Skincare Blogger Review 001For Moisturizer, we have OSEA’s Atmosphere Protection Cream, which is my second favourite in the range.  Described as a lightweight moisturizer that protects skin from dehydration and damage from environmental aggressors. The super emollient algae base ensures instantaneous absorption while the advanced blend of dermal proteins increases elasticity and leaves a matte, silky finish. An amazing, invisible base for makeup application.  What I like about this moisturizer is it’s smooth texture and natural, moisturizing finish,
OSEA Natural Skincare Blogger Review Swatches 005The OSEA’s Atmosphere Protection Cream when dispensed on the skin, is gel like in consistency and milky in colour.
OSEA Natural Skincare Blogger Review Swatches 002After spreading out, OSEA’s Atmosphere Protection Cream is rich and moisturizing, leaving a healthy, natural shine.
OSEA Natural Skincare Blogger Review 004Next up we have OSEA’s Vitamin Sea Serum! This serum is touted to be an easily absorbed, potent serum that contains an anti-aging blend of seven organic seaweed extracts in a hydrating Hyaluronic Acid base. Packed with powerful antioxidants including Ferulic Acid, Turmeric, and Walnut Seed and Green Tea extracts, this serum will plump up moisture-depleted skin and restore a youthful glow. This is another favourite of mine in the range, I like this Vitamin Sea Serum for days when I feel that my skin is a little dull and needs a boost to look healthy and glowing.
OSEA Natural Skincare Blogger Review Swatches 001OSEA’s Vitamin Sea Serum is bright yellow and has a mid watery-gel consistency, gentle spread it out on the skin and pat it with finger tips and cover with palms until the serum is fully absorbed into the skin. Whilst it’s recommended for all skin types on their site, I recommend it more for dry skin, mature skin, fatigue skin, sun-damaged skin or skin that was exposed to the sun.
OSEA Natural Skincare Blogger Review 006Last but not the least, we have OSEA’s Black Algae Mask that promises to detoxify, stimulate circulation and exfoliates.This concentrated formula stimulates circulation and brightens your complexion. Black marine silt and pure fig extract contain deep-cleansing enzymes for your skin while micro black jojoba spheres provide a gentle granular exfoliation. I’m telling you, this mask is really quite the bomb. After a mere recommended 10 minutes application on my skin (no rubbing or extra effort required) and washing it out, my skin was RED. I was quite shocked as this has never happened to me before in my 25 years alive, after masking. In my worry of it being some kind of allergy reaction, I quickly went to google and found out that it’s a normal reaction to the mask which dies down after 45min and the morning after, it gives a healthy natural glow. Well of course not everyone may experience redness of skin due to the mask stimulating blood circulation, but if you have very dull facial skin and is desperately in need of some natural flush and colour, I highly recommend the use of this mask on a weekly basis. Suitable for all skin except for super sensitive skin.OSEA Natural Skincare Blogger Review Swatches 004OSEA’s Black Algae mask is rich in black marine silt and pure fig extract that contain deep-cleansing enzymes for your skin while micro black jojoba spheres provide a gentle granular exfoliation.

Just a note that OSEA’s Natural skincare range contains botanical oils (lots of different types of seed oils). These work to restore your skin’s balance and because they are noncomedogenic they do not clog your pores or cause breakouts. (Yay!) For more FAQ check out here.

In conclusion, I can see how OSEA natural skincare range will be popular in Singapore due to our sunny weather, I especially recommend this range and products especially for those exposed under the sun, like swimmers and athletes. Also, if you are trying out natural skincare for the first time, take note that natural skincare products and ranges usually take a while longer (2 weeks at least) to see more obvious effects on your skin, especially if you’re used to “instant” effect products which are popular in the market. However after the few weeks, you’ll appreciate the natural goodness and its effects on your skin.

Hydrate your skin for longer with Goodal Moisture Barrier Range

Edit, Update: Thank you all for taking part in the giveaway, I have picked Xin Xuan from the blog comment. 🙂

Hi Loves!

Are you looking for a moisturizing skincare range that is able to hydrate your skin for a long period of time?  Or do you feel that your skin is dry and dehydrated despite frequent application of moisturizers? It might mean that your skin barrier is damaged. Then you’ll be interested to read about my review of Goodal’s Moisture Barrier Range & their Phytowash cleanser!

Goodal is a skincare brand from Korea that focuses on natural ingredients in their skincare. Goodal is introducing its latest Moisture Barrier Range consisting of four different skincare essentials designed to repair the moisture barrier to keep skin plump and hydrated. The range is formulated with two main ingredients – Mistletoe Moisture Barrier Complex, that repairs the barrier and Mt. Seorak Water, which replenishes moisture in the skin to allow for a radiant complexion providing a defense against moisture loss by maintaining skin’s moisture barrier while actively hydrating the skin.

Goodal Moisture Barrier Range Enabalista Beauty Blogger Review 001Goodal’s Moisture Barrier Range & Phytowash cleanser

Goodal PhytowashGoodal’s Phytowash comes with a very user friendly dispenser, the foamy cleanser is soft, fine and gentle on the skin. It contains fine grains that exfoliates dead skin cells, Inca omega oil and Murumuru butter that balances the oil and water on dry skin, leaving skin hydrated even after the wash. It also contains Yerba Mate, a type of herb with polyphenol (micronutrients), saponin (natural soap), vitamins and green tea that maintains bright and healthy skin. I enjoy using this cleanser, I recommend it as a daily cleanser or you can also use it as a night cleanser, as it’s great for cleansing and exfoliating after a long day.

Now on to Goodal’s Moisture Barrier Range!
As mentioned, this range is formulated with two main ingredients – Mistletoe Moisture Barrier Complex, that repairs the barrier and Mt. Seorak Water, which replenishes moisture in the skin. More about them here:

1.        Mt Seorak Water

Found from the depths of 580m underground of Mt. Seorak, the 100% natural spring water contains 16 minerals including sodium, calcium and potassium that are known for their abilities to effectively moisturize the skin. These minerals assist in the process of effectively binding water with dehydrated skin cells and replenishes the skin’s moisture level for a radiant and well-hydrated skin.

2.         Mistletoe Moisture Complex Barrier

Able to bear fruit in below zero temperatures, the mistletoe plant is known for their strong endurance properties. This vitality is due to the presence of lectin (a type of protein found in plants), which promotes the secretion of cytokine, a category of smaller proteins which has been clinically proven to maintain skin homeostasis, an important process for skin renewal. Studies have shown that cytokines increases cell production and accelerates renewal of skin cells, making it suitable for use on damaged skin barriers.

Beginning with the first item in the range,
1. Goodal Moisture Barrier Liquid 

Goodal Moisture Barrier Liquid 2

Goodal Moisture Barrier Liquid is highly concentrated with Mistletoe and Natural Moisturizing Factor (NMF) with a thick texture with nutrients from toner, emulsion and essence.Goodal Moisture Barrier Liquid 3

Goodal Moisture Barrier Liquid is recommended for those with constant dry skin that needs lasting moisturizing or need to to revitalize fatigue skin from overworking, lack of sleep or stress.

Goodal Moisture Barrier Liquid 1Recommended usage after cleansing the face, dispense a small amount onto fingers and apply evenly on the face, tapping in to dry areas, wrap the face with your hands for absorption and finish off by massaging in the residue on the neck (no wastage!) 😉Goodal Moisture Barrier Liquid 4The Goodal Moisture Barrier Liquid is almost gel like in consistency since it’s highly concentrated. It’s said to be moist like toner, soft like emulsion and strong like essence. While you can use it on its own as an all in one for this range, I believe you can add on a FTE (First treatment essence) or skin prep product to prep the skin before using the Liquid.

2a. Goodal Moisture Barrier Cream
Next in the range we have the Goodal Moisture Barrier Cream with similar ingredients as the Liquid except with very different function, While the Liquid is used to hydrate the skin, the Cream with its balm like texture and vegetable butter ingredient, works to firmly wrap the skin with a glowing moisture barrier. 

Goodal Moisture Barrier Cream 4
Goodal Moisture Barrier Cream 3Goodal Moisture Barrier Eyecream 2
Goodal Moisture Barrier Cream 6

The 3rd product in the range is
2b. Goodal Moisture Barrier Cream Fresh
is basically an alternative to the Cream. While the Cream is recommended for dry skin, Cream Fresh is for oily skin types. It has a snow-type texture (really does!) that melts into the skin and forms a refreshing moisture barrier. I love this product, the refreshing organic scent, snow like texture and how it keeps my skin hydrated for long hours through the night when I sleep and in the day while at work.

Goodal Moisture Barrier Cream Fresh 1 Goodal Moisture Barrier Cream Fresh 2 Goodal Moisture Barrier Cream Fresh 3 Goodal Moisture Barrier Cream Fresh 4

The last but not the least
3. Goodal Moisture Barrier Eyecream
keeps your eyes hydrated!

Goodal Moisture Barrier Eyecream 3Goodal Moisture Barrier Eyecream 1Always be gentle when you apply eyecream on your eyes. Dab gently under the eyes, above the eyes and the rest at the eyebrow bone.

My Trip to Rexults Clinic (formerly known as EPW Laser & Medical Aesthetics Clinic)

Hi loves!

A few weeks back I paid a visit to Rexults Clinic  (formerly known as EPW Laser & Medical Aesthetics Clinic) for a consultation followed by treatment session and I’m very pleased with my experience and happy to be able to share it with you today!


Before I go into details about the treatment process, let me share a little more about Rexults Clinic~


With 22 Years in Medical Aesthetics Practice, Rexults Clinic is located on the 17th floor of Tong Building in Orchard Road and the clinic is a pioneer in Singapore’s medical aesthetics industry which delivers top line medical skincare procedures for problematic skin conditions and non-surgical face enhancement solutions. The clinic was started in 1993 by Medical Director and Founder Dr EP Wong. You may not have seen many advertisements for the clinic because it has always relied on word of mouth, bass on their good track record. It is their reliability, being up-to-date and customer-centric culture that keeps patients visiting the clinic!


Excellent Facilities & Equipment:
Rexults Clinic has excellent facilities – large waiting areas with comfortable designer sofas, a professional photo-taking room, immaculate doctors’ consultation rooms and 4 treatment rooms filled with the latest medical-grade equipment. From these, I can see that the clinic strives to attain the highest professional standards in everything they do. I’ve also learnt that the doctors at Rexults Clinic also keep abreast on the latest developments in the field of medical aesthetics. In order to deliver precise results, due diligence is applied in the selection of equipment and refining the techniques of any new procedures.  For this reason, it is not just about the equipment, but the discerning eye, experience and skills of the specialists that matter.

 image6Spacious & comfortable waiting space before treatment. 

Rexults Clinic Treatment Room pictureA peek of the treatment room.

Procedures – No or Minimal Downtime:
After the registration, I was chaperoned into Associate Doctor, Melvin Tan’s consultation room.  I shared my objective to get rid of my some pigmentation and minor skin growth on my face.  As I was concerned about having any downtime, Dr. Tan assured me that the downtime for the recommended procedures would have no downtime / minimal downtime.

image8 Here’s a picture of me with the anesthetic cream before the laser treatment. It is left on for about 30-60 minutes and removed before the laser treatment. 

Here are the procedures and treatments I had experienced at Rexults Clinic: 

Clarity laser procedure – a very effective for pigmentation. The Clarity laser also helps in photo rejuvenation of the skin, so it can minimise your pores, reduce fine lines and help boost collagen synthesis.  Just what I need to maintain youthful-looking skin! You don’t have to worry about skin thinning as this laser targets the skin layers beneath, not the surface. Results: Brighter, clearer and more even skin tone.

Extraction – My nose needed extraction and the best way to is to have the procedure performed by a medical professional in a sterile environment.
Result: Smoother skin texture and helps in preventing future breakouts. I am really very impressed by the Doctor’s professional extraction, the acne spots very quickly died down with little to no scarring within the next few days. There really is a difference between a clinic and facial salon extraction, the difference is in the shorter downtime.

 • Radiowave surgery – is a highly effective procedure for the removal of skin surface irregularities such as acne, moles and skin tags.  Dr. Tan performed some spot radiowave surgery for some of the minor skin growth on my skin.
Result: Improved skin texture – i.e. smoother skin. After 3 weeks, I am truly very happy to report that this procedure has been a dream come true. The procedure did leave some minor scabs which dropped off naturally and now my skin is smooth. I didn’t even need any extra skincare after, Doctor Tan just told me to use my usual hydrating skincare.

Mask – A brightening and soothing mask is applied. Excellent in calming my skin.

LED Blue Light Treatment
Result: The light causes the development of oxygen radicals that get rid of acne bacteria without damaging healthy skin.

• LED Yellow Light Treatment
Result: Improves skin tone and helps to heal the skin.

IMG_4762Here’s a photo of me sans makeup with Dr Tan during the review, 1 week after the treatment. 

Patient Care
A key success of Rexults Clinic is that the staff are committed to developing long and trusting relationships with all clients.  Rexults Clinic trains their people to deliver superlative service both within the clinic and through a comprehensive after-care program that lets patients know that they are always there for them.  I like the fact that the clinic makes it a point to find out how your skin is doing even after the procedures and treatments have been done, like how I went back 1 weeks after the treatment for follow up. I can now understand why patients and their family/friends choose to visit Rexults Clinic. It is their professionalism and genuine after-care service that speaks volumes.


Background on Dr. Melvin Tan, Associate Doctor – Rexults Clinic
From my visit to Rexults Clinic, I learned that Dr. Melvin Tan enjoys individually tailoring combination treatments for his patients, relying on a large toolbox of procedures to ensure his patients achieve the best and most predictable results. He believes that patients should look natural and rested, while still maintaining their individuality. What is also interesting is that since 2012, Dr. Tan has personally trained over 50 doctors in South East Asia on basic and advanced injection techniques using Botox and fillers. If I do plan to have some face enhancement procedures done, I know who I can look for.

If you’re interested to improve your skin, you can make an appointment to see Dr. Melvin Tan at Rexults Clinic.

 Dr. Tan’s consultation fee is SGD$50.

 A customised program would be recommended by the doctor for every patient’s individual needs.

Rexults Clinic is located at 302 Orchard Road #17-01 Tong Building (Beside Paragon).
Call +65 235 5533.    Email: info@rexultsclinic.com    Website: www.rexultsclinic.com


Thank you Rexults Clinic, Dr Tan & Simon for my pleasant experiences at the clinic & for helping me achieve clearer and smoother skin through the laser and combination treatments!



Achieve Clearer, Brighter Skin with Atlas Medical Korean Triple Translucent Skin Trio

Hi Loves!

Feels like it’s been a while since I last blogged about a facial review. I experienced the treatments a few months back, now that I finally find the time, I’m very excited to share about my experience with Atlas Medical Clinic/Medispa’s Korean Triple Translucent Skin Trio, aka Korean Skin Trio!

Atlas Medicial Clinic’s Korean Translucent Skin Trio consists of:
1. Revlite Laser Toning by Doctor SM Yuen
2. Aqua Radiance Medical Grade Facial
3. Korean Intense Moisture Mask
and it costs $128(inclusive GST)

You can also enjoy a similar Skin Trio treatment at Atlas Medispa, with the following steps:
1. Silk Peel
2. VPL, Variable Pulse Light Treatment
3. Hydrating Mask

Do note that a pre-assessment is needed prior to the treatment.

So I tried out 2 sessions of Revlite Laser Toning by Doctor SM Yuen and I love it! It was my very first time going through any laser toning or treatment of sorts and I was very happy to be under the good hands of Dr SM Yuen and team! If you’re like me and have never tried Revlite Laser Toning before, let me explain my experience~

After cleansing the face, one of the Atlas Medical Clinic attentive Skincare Therapist will prepare you and have your hair pulled and secured back with a white head band. Then the doctor is called in and he will gently speak to you and prepare you if it’s your first time going through laser. He explains that the laser is similar to a warm light and at the most, it shouldn’t feel more then an ant bite. Plus, there is a light air tube that blows cold air concurrently with the Revlite laser treatment which helps to distract and sooth any discomfort. There might be some slight burnt scent as it’s the laser burning away facial hairs, it’s perfectly normal and not detrimental.

I definitely enjoyed both Revlite Laser Toning sessions and love the clearing and brightening effect it has on my skin after. Check out the photos I took during and after the Revlite Laser Toning sessions!

image1After my first Revlite Laser Toning session.image2 image3A few days after the first Revlite Laser Toning session, my skin’s clearer, brighter and make up applies on smoother.

image4Another photo after my first Revlite Laser Toning session.

Went back for my second Revlite Laser Toning Session, I think I was pretty much experiencing my best(albeit slightly tired) skin in my entire life, with little to no pimples because of the right combination of hydrating skincare, supplements, facials, laser treatments and healthy lifestyle. ^^image5 image6 image7 image8 image9 image10

A few days after the second Revlite Laser Toning session. Was actually feeling really tired, but thank God for radiant good skin thanks to the Revlite Laser Toning sessions!

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

Last but not the least, I also had the chance to review Atlas Medispa’s Skin Trio session, which as mentioned above, consists of the Silk Peel, VPL and mask steps which helps to remove dead skin cells, rejuvenate by hydrating and brightening the skin!

Remember to quote “Ena Teo” if you’re visiting the Medispa or Clinic to get special rates for their services and products!

Skin Renewal with Nu-Factor Skincare Range

Hi Loves!

I’ve been using Nu-Factor’s skincare range for almost a month now and it’s time for a review! 🙂

For the uninitiated, Nu-Factor skincare range is made in Singapore by a R&D company who believes in 100% nature ingredients.

Andew Szalay, the Founder of Grow Company USA, the world’s premier manufacturer of nutrients and cosmetics ingredients, discovered that every nutrient required its own unique peptide in order for it to be absorbed through the cell wall of the appropriate bio-carrier. It took much perseverance through trial and error before the right peptide sequence was discovered for each specific nutrient. Hence, the Nu-factor® process utilises Nature to grow concentrated, natural, and complete nutrients in food form…..a form your body recognises and appreciates. Nu-factor® presents the most effective nutrients available to improve your quality of life. From the inside-out, and the outside-in. Szalay says” The investment in time and effort was well worth it as it birthed a whole new way of producing vitamins and minerals that are natural, highly concentrated, and vastly superior. “

To find out even more about the technology used, visit:


Nu Factor Range

I had the pleasure to try out this Nu Factor’s skincare range that consists of these 5 products: Essential Cleanser ($55), Essential Toner ($76), Day Essential ($95), Night Essential ($95) & Essential Renewal ($95).

Nu Factor Essential Cleanser

Nu-Factor Essential Cleanser is my favourite product of the range. I was very pleasantly surprised by this facial cleanser because it reminds me of Chanel’s Le Blanc Intense Brightening Foam Cleanser, it smells very fragrant and gives you a clear and fairer effect after using it. I feel that this facial cleanser is very effective in removing the dead skin built up on my forehead to give me an overall even skin tone.

For the full review, you can head over to In The Loop here to check it out! 😉

Thank you to Janice from In The Loop and Nu-Factor for the products for review!

GLAMGLOW Powermud Dual Cleanse (Clay + Oil) Treatment that Gently Cleanses the Skin


Hi Loves~

Today I want to share about GLAMGLOW’s PowerMud Dual Cleanse Treatment, which I was introduced to when they launched at Escentials (a long time back, #blogdebt, hurrr)!

Glam Glow Power Mud Launch 001

A pretty row of stacked up GlamGlow PowerMud~
Glam Glow Power Mud Launch 003

GlamGlow Masks are created by husband and wife team Glenn and Shannon Dellimore, it’s supposedly originally designed for exclusive professional backstage use in Hollywood and was only made available to consumers worldwide in 2011.
Glam Glow Power Mud Launch 004

The introduction of GlamGlow PowerMud comes after their YouthMud (Tingling and Exfoliating treatment), SuperMud  (Clearing treatment) and ThirstyMud (Hydrating treatment). They also have a BrightMud Eye treatment~

Glam Glow Power Mud Launch 002Glam Glow Power Mud Launch 005 Glam Glow Power Mud Launch 006

Food & HicJuice – raw organic and cold pressed drink, super yummy!Glam Glow Power Mud Launch 007

The GlamGlow PowerMud. It’s a mix of both Claymud and Teaoxi aka green tea Oil so it promises to – cleanse, nourish, detox, purify and renew – deeply yet gently cleanses the skin. It smells amazing because of fragrant plant extracts which includes apple, so I really love the smell of the mask itself and when its on my skin. There will be an initial warmth feel after application but it does not get irritable. After removal, skin feels velvety smooth. I left the mask on for 20 minutes and removed it with running water quite easily even though it dried on my face. It doesn’t feel like it soaks up the oil and dirt and cleanse my face like other clay masks I’ve tried because of the oil extract, so it feels more gentle and nourishing. The downside of the mask is its high price point, at more than $90 per bottle.Glam Glow Power Mud Launch 008Thank you Leanne for the invite to the launch and thanks to Escentials  for hosting us and the samples for review! 🙂



Detox & Hydrate with Eumora The Moor Bar with Hma Factor

You can get a FREE trial now from www.FreeEumora.com with a small shipping and handling charge. 😉

Hi Lovelies! <3

How have you all been? I hope your weekend was fine, as was mine~ 😀

Today I’m sharing about a new skincare product that I’ve been using and enjoying; a facial bar to be exact!

Pre & First Impressions

When I was first invited via email to review this skincare product, I was not expecting to come to enjoy using the facial bar as I am now. As most of my skincare products, especially cleansers, come in a tube or modern plastic dispenser of some sort! Facial bar, ala LUX-style bars are meant for body soaps, not for facial cleansing, right? Well, I thought wrong. And I’m also glad to be able to report and share with you all why I enjoy using this soap bar! Read on for my review, then I will share with you just exactly what’s in this unique facial bar (marketing info. and ingredients benefits etc) that makes it effective and enjoyable to me. 😉

Eumora The Moor Bar with HMA Blogger Review Enabalista 1

My Eumora bars came in an elegant Europe-style box with baroque print details, lovely isn’t it?
The Eumora bar set do not come with the plastic holder, but it will be necessary! 🙂

Eumora The Moor Bar with HMA Blogger Review Enabalista 3

4 small Eumora facial bars nicely packed within! Love it, reminds me of chocolates/snacks. 😛Eumora The Moor Bar with HMA Blogger Review Enabalista 4This is how the facial bar looks like, a milk chocolate colour bar. Incase you’re wondering and hungry, it’s not edible, lol. 😛

My Review of Eumora The Moor Bar with Hma Factor

After using the Eumora The Moor Bar with Hma Factor for two weeks, in the day and evening, the very first thing I noticed is how my face has a visible shine right after using it. Its hydrating factor is definitely something worth raving about. Imma gonna insert a photo of yours truly, bare face, right after using it:


Bare face, cleansed and no that is not my facial oil shine on my nose and forehead… it’s a legit and visible shine every time after I use the bar! No photoshop or filter for this pic either! When I started using the facial bar, I was very impressed with the shine on my face after cleansing, I would look at my face in the mirror and go “wow”, this stuff is really hydrating!

So in addition to the cleansing and hydration effect of this facial bar, what I like is that it gently cleanses without any taut feeling after, so I know that it doesn’t strip my face off the necessary oil. In case you don’t know, if we strip our face of the good oils, it will cause our skin to churn out more oil. So to gently cleanse your face without stripping it completely off oil is better for your skin in the long run! The facial bar is fragrance free. To use, you will have to wash your hands, lather the soap bar in your hands and then spread and leave the lather on your face for 3 minutes before washing it off with water after.

A note of caution, you might experience a healing crisis, as in a breakout after using this product as it helps you to expel the toxins in the body. So don’t worry and it is normal. 

Here’s a clear Directions for use diagram:

Screen Shot 2014-07-14 at 9.40.57 pm


I will recommend people with normal to oily and acne prone skin to use this. People with dry skin should also use this. 🙂

So just what goes into this facial bar that makes it hydrating and unique as I mentioned?

1. Moor

Natural Nutrient Rich Organic Mud from Europe

Moor has been used for well being for at least 2,000 years.
The Romans prized it for its health and strength promoting qualities,
even Cleopatra was reputed to have indulged in Moor as part of her beauty regimen.


Reacts Fast



Anti Inflammatory (Great for acne skin)

Wow! Sounds impressive isn’t it?

In case you think Cleopatra is merely a Shakespearean character ala in Anthony & Cleopatra, she really did exist.


A cinematic portrayal of Anthony & Cleopatra.

Cleopatra VII Philopator (GreekΚλεοπάτρα Φιλοπάτωρ; Late 69 BC[1] – August 12, 30 BC), known to history as Cleopatra, was the last active pharaoh of Ancient Egypt, only shortly survived by her son, Caesarion as pharaoh. The name Cleopatra is derived from the Greek name Κλεοπατρα (Kleopatra) which meant “glory of the father” in the feminine form, derived from κλεος (kleos) “glory” combined with πατρος (patros) “of the father” (the masculine form would be Kleopatros Κλεοπατρος).[2][3]. – Wikipedia.

 Wait a minute, let me fact check if Cleopatra really did use Moor mud, I mean, she lived so many years ago… Is it just a marketing gimmick to name drop a classic Egyptian beauty to sell a modern day product? 😛

According to this Spa shop, Queen Cleopatra took regular Mud and Milk Baths as her beauty ritual!

Source 2: Ehow.com

Therapeutic mud often comes from areas around mineral springs, and the high mineral content of the mud is regarded as one the main reasons for its beneficial effects.Cleopatra is said to have prized it so highly as a beauty treatment that she persuaded Mark Anthony to conquer the region and present it to her as a gift. Like seriously? Wow! The power of Cleopatra…

Moor mud is an organic peat substance formed by the decomposition of a variety of plants over a very long period of time. Extracted from the moorlands of Central Europe, it is a black paste that dissolves easily in water and has a high concentration of amino acids, minerals, plant hormones and vitamins. This mud has been valued for its beautifying and therapeutic properties from ancient times to the present day. It was used by the Romans and the Egyptians; Queen Cleopatra apparently took regular mud dips when she wasn’t bathing in milk. In modern times, people can avail themselves of this mud in spas and health centers, or purchase it for home use from health stores and online health therapy sites. 

The unique healing properties of this mud have been used to treat a variety of human and animal ailments. The mud has been found to relieve suffering associated with arthritis and rheumatism, soothe muscle aches and reduce joint swellings, and stimulate the immune system. Being an antibiotic and astringent, the mud has a cleansing effect on skin and is used in skin care as a facial or an entire body pack. Moor mud treatment improves circulation, staves off wrinkles and gives the skin a healthy glow. It is often used to treat skin problems like acne, eczema andpsoriasiso.

Ok, so this Moor Mud thing is legit good for the skin and has healing properties, whether or not Cleopatra was so famously known to have used it in her beauty rituals.

2. MicroAlgae aka Chlorella Sorokiniana

(Sounds like a mix of Japanese and Brazil, lol)

Rich in Vitamin B1, B2, B12 and niacin which can increase the skin’s energy and protect the skin to stay away from all kinds of pressure (I think it means the radicals/pollutants in the air).

Benefits includes:
Deep moisturizing action (So this is what deeply hydrates and give me the shine after using it!)
Strengthens defense qualities of the skin barrier.
Gives extraordinary softness and brightness.

Replenish & Rejuvenate with Herbalife SKIN in 7 Days, Event & Products Review

Hi Lovelies!

How was your weekend? My weekend felt quite long cause it started early with my friends on Friday night followed by two eventful days on Sat and Sun. 😀

Today I’m sharing with you all photos from the Herbalife Skin launch and event from a while back plus my review of the products I’ve used!

When I received the event invite I was quite hesitant to go down because the event was right smack during Audi Fashion Festival week and I had events to attend to before and after. Additionally Herbalife is a nutrition company famous for their meal replacement formulas and their SKIN line is unheard of in Asia. On hindsight, I am very glad that I made the decision to attend because after personally meeting and hearing from Robert, the co-developer of the products, I have concluded that Herbalife SKIN is really a new force to be reckoned with in the skincare/beauty market. More about the people and products shortly!

As usual, photos of the event followed by my review of the skincare products. 😀

2014-05-16 15.22.26

Herbalife SKIN, designed to Replenish & Rejuvenate in just 7 days!

The stars of the afternoon; beautifully designed and chic Herbalife SKIN products and their packaging. Plus, this is quite possibly the best product shot that I have ever taken in my entire blogging career. The sun rays just streaming down so beautifully! *swoons*
Who says that a skincare product cannot look as good as the ingredients are beneficial for the skin, right?

2014-05-16 15.27.35

Daliea, the VP of Corp. Comm of Asia Pac. of Herbalife, giving an introduction to the company in Asia region.

2014-05-16 15.28.18

Another representative from Herbalife also sharing about Herbalife’s company and how well it’s doing in US and Asia.

In summary, Herbalife was founded in 1980 in Los Angeles (USA) with the goal to help people achieve a healthy, active life. Their products are sold through a network of independent Herbalife Members, a type of sales channel also known as direct selling. Now operating in 90+ countries with 7400+ employees globally and millions of customers. Herbalife brought in US$4.8 billion in net sales in 2013 and US$1.7 billion in net sales in Asia Pacific region alone and of course, these numbers are expected to be growing.

Herbalife as I mentioned earlier is famous for their Formula 1 Meal Replacement Shakes which is No.1 in the meal replacement category, according to Euromonitor Int. Ltd. 2014. They also have products catering to “Energy, Sports and Fitness”, “Personal Care Outer Nutrition” and “Targeted Nutrition”.

After the introductions, we have a pair of beauty experts sharing with us about the new Herbalife SKIN range; Robert Helmes, Herbalife consultant and co-developer of Herbalife SKIN and Laura Chacon-Garbato, director of Outer Nutrition Product Training of Herbal Life North America.

2014-05-16 15.42.35

is its unique and optimum blend of: Vitamin B, antioxidant Vitamin C and E, Aloe Vera (which Robert likes to simply call Aloe) and other botanical (i.e. natural) ingredients. It is also paraben free, sulfate free and dermatologist tested.

is to be pampered with lush textures, and be soothed with silky soft lathers, inspired by the scents, smell fresh and be rejuvenated.

Fast Results

A photo with Laura & Robert.

I have attended many training workshops for personal growth, real estate and also beauty, so I know a good speaker when I see one. It’s remarkable, simply to be able to attend a workshop with a good trainer, or in this case 2 good trainers who are experienced, professional and most importantly knowledgeable about their products and range. It is truly a pleasure to have been able to hear from them personally and attend their presentation. 🙂

As I spoke to them after and commended them on their engaging presentation, it was no wonder when they shared that the day after and essentially for the entire duration they are in Singapore they’re giving training workshops to media (like me), press and their own Herbalife members at the Herbalife Convention; where members from Japan, Indonesia and Malaysia come down. They aren’t just small time event trainers but big time event trainers!

I am undoubtedly impressed, it didn’t quite occur to me that a direct selling company such as Herbalife can be so well organized and running impressively like any other corporations would! I guess having had brief experiences with other direct selling companies gave me the mis-conception that direct selling companies generally overpromise and deliver therefore giving the impression that it is inferior (in terms of company structure, products and training) compared to the bigger boys such as the departmental brands or high end brands… Perhaps I have happened to have a better experience and impression of Herbalife SKIN people and products, but I would definitely recommend you to go ahead and give Herbalife SKIN service & products a try! If you already have a current or prior experience, whether good or bad, feel free to share your experience in the comments below to let me know and also to share with other readers~ 🙂

The event was held at Group Therapy Cafe, site here, FB here and their food and coffee is delightful! Definitely definitely love to go back again for a date or group session~~~

Drink Coffee; do stupid things faster with more energy. HAHAA.

Finally time for product reviews!!!

Sharing my feelings~
I was very excited to use and review their products especially after attending the workshop and I think like watching a movie after reading a good review, even if the movie is indeed awesome, the awesome factor doesn’t weigh up accurately in our minds, because we have already set the bar higher at the awesome level. So it was the same for my pre-use experience and after use experience. I had tried the Clay and Berry Scrub during the workshop and I was completely sold on the premise of the entire range during the presentation. Did the products and range deliver the promise after I used them? Yes. But was I impressed? Not so much, simply because it worked like they said it would! Ok, we humans (or maybe just me? :P) are a bunch of people that’s hard to please, I know! So in essence, I’m trying to tell you is, the premise of the Herbalife SKIN range, it’s wonderful. Try it, use it with an open mind, with no expectations, then, decide for yourself if you’re duly impressed, or not. 😉

Well as Herbalife SKIN is currently still fairly new to the Asia Pac market (launched in Oct 2013 in US, launched in June 2014 in Asia Pac) therefore it’s still lesser known, but once other bloggers or the wisdom of the female forums start to leave their recommendations and rave about the products (or my recommendations below, keke) Then you will know what are the really awesome (to be differentiated from the simply awesome) products.

Omg, I don’t know why I am sooooo chirpy and extra talkative in my review here. I’m not usually this verbose. But verbose is good, right? Moving on…

2014-06-06 12.10.33

Herbalife SKIN was generous in sponsoring the entire set of 10 products for use and review. Lovely packaging, once again! Comes with a sparkly make up pounch and Swarovski pen. I will explain the two bags shortly.

2014-06-06 12.15.29

The Herbalife SKIN offers three skin care programs – Basic, Advanced or Ultimate – which combine products from the range to address specific skin care concerns and deliver tailored results to consumers.
1) Basic Program includes Soothing Aloe Cleanser or Polishing Citrus Cleanser, Energizing Herbal Toner, Daily Glow Moisturizer and Replenishing Night Cream

2) Advanced Program includes Basic program with the addition of Line Minimizing Serum, Firming Eye Gel and Hydrating Eye Cream

3) Ultimate Program includes the Advanced Program with the addition of Purifying Mint Clay Mask and Instant Reveal Berry Scrub

Of course by now I’m sure you noticed the obvious numbers on the packaging that helps remind you which product goes on first. Plus if you open the paper wrapped around the casing, it shows you the entire steps too~ Yes, I am a beauty blogger but sometimes even I am not sure which product goes one first (cream, or serum, omg #firstworldproblems. In case you’re wondering, my answer is, it depends. Usually lightweight serum goes first, but where in a case of the cream is more lightweight then, cream before the heavier serum. #QED (stands for Quite Easily Solved, a math geek tutor taught us this in Secondary school, lol.))

Oh yes, btw, Guys can use this system too!

That’s why all the numbers cause it can be confusing, hahaha.

Another SUPER plus point of this entire range is it’s airless pump nozzles. You never have to dig your fingers in to get the products! Major love!!

I will review the products individually before I go into my recommendation of sets and use if you decide to get the full range of 10 products.


2014-06-28 00.43.252014-06-28 00.44.14

1. Herbalife SKIN Polishing Citrus Cleanser Review (Step 1)

Ingredients such as Vit B, C, E, Aloe Vera, Oils from Orange, Grapefruit, jojoba esters.

First off, I had high expectations for this Polishing Citrus Cleanser. I loveee beads in my cleansers that do its little scrubbing magic that makes my skin feel refreshed after a long day outside exposed to dust and all. However I did not fancy these little green beads which are a tad too big and stiff. In the light of things, these beads are seriously tiny, however they still feel fairly bulky (weird to refer these tiny things as bulky) compared to the other beaded cleanser counterparts, which I have used from both drugstores to departmental brands; Johnson & Johnson and Biotherm respectively. The plus of this cleanser is that is cleanses without leaving the skin overly taut/dry plus its awesome refreshing citrus-y scent which is always a welcome for an invigorating morning wash~ This facial wash is recommended for people with normal to oily skin types. I would recommend guys to use this! Especially if you prefer and are looking for beaded cleaners with bigger beads for a better feel during their facial cleansing step.

Screen Shot 2014-07-08 at 1.25.36 am

Digressing a little here to talk about some Enabalista Trivia: According to my FB page insights, the number of recorded Male and Female FB followers are almost equal (Guys 51%), if that is accurate of my blog readers, then I actually have an almost equal male to female readership. Well of course I can’t use and recommend guy’s products to the guys, but I do have guy readers emailing me asking me about facials, one even complaining about my review, lol. If you’re a guy reader, would you like me to recommend skincare for you as well? Let me know! If so I can be more active in attending / researching Men’s Beauty and updating here as well. 😀


2014-06-28 00.45.37 2014-06-28 00.45.58



2. Herbalife SKIN Soothing Aloe Cleanser Review (Step 1)

Ingredients: Vit B, C, E, Aloe Vera, Coconut derived cleansing ingredients.

This cleanser is soothing and as pictured about it has a gel like consistency~ Recommended for Normal to Dry skin types as it is very hydrating and Aloe is known for its soothing and restorative abilities so definitely recommended for sensitive skin types as well.

3. Herbalife SKIN Energizing Herbal Toner Review (Step 2)

Ingredients: Vit B, C, E, Aloe Vera, Potassium Alum.
This toner has a sweet mandarin citrus scent that preps the skin to better receive the serum and moisturizer for maximum effects.

I enjoyed using this toner immensely because of the scent which lingers on long after (in my nose and mind) and I look forward to using it. I think this is such a great benefit of the product; I am big with products with nice, sweet scents which are fresh and not cloying. It definitely hydrates the skin and preps it before the moisturizer and serum. I think it would be more appropriate to term this toner a fruity toner, or a citrus toner because I am not sure how the sweet mandarin citrus is herbal, is any way. Mandarin Citrus may be Oriental, but not herbal. Haha.


4. Herbalife SKIN Line Minimizing Serum (Step 3)

Ingredients: Vit B, C, E and Aloe Vera, Chestnut Seed Extract, Peptide.
Multi functional serum helps diminish the visible signs of aging.

I only use this on my forehead and laugh lines, to prevent lines, lol. The serum is a whitish gel like cream and applies smooth and clears clean. At $100.19 a bottle, it’s the priciest product of the entire range. While it does not have an instant effect and neither can I boast that it has worked on my relatively young (23 year old) skin, what I enjoy and take away from my experience is the texture and feel of this serum is velvety without being oily or greasy AND it did not break me out on my normal to oily skin. *thumbs up*

This product is definitely targeted at an older crowd who is concerned about minimizing lines, able and glad to shell out the dollars. Robert (the Herbalife consultant and co-developer of the range) swears by it and uses it very generously on his face and at his 40s his face still looks like his 30s. Of course he would, and we will have to take his word for it, don’t we? 😛

5. Herbalife SKIN Hydrating Eye Cream (Step 4)

Ingredients: Vit B, C, E and Aloe Vera, Macadamia Nut Oil, Cucumber extract, Peptide.

This is my 2nd favourite product from the range. I super love the cucumber scent of this product. It’s refreshing and lightweight eye cream which I would love to apply all over my face except that it would probably be a waste to, so I keep it just around my eyes as recommended, it’s not called an Eye Cream for fun, haha.


6. Herbalife SKIN Firming Eye Gel (Step 4)

Ingredients: Vit B, C, E and Aloe Vera, Macadamia Nut Oil, Cucumber extract.

This Eye Gel isn’t as lightweight as the Hydrating Cream and I personally prefer the Hydrating Eye Cream. As such you can pick which is a bigger concern for you, if you want to increase the firmness of your eye area then you might want to opt for this instead.


7. Herbalife SKIN Daily Glow Moisturizer (Step 5)

Ingredients: Vit B, C, E and Aloe Vera, Sunflower seed oil, Spilanthes Acmella Flower extract, Macadamia nut oil, Olive oil, Sesame seed oil.

This is my favourite product from the entire range~ ! I super love how my skin has that glow after using, the product is shimmery beige after dispensed from the bottle and I apply it on my skin as the step 5, before sunblock and that’s all I need for a foundation free day or I I want more coverage, with a BB cream after and I feel that my skin has that beautiful glow~ Some people like to look for bronzer to give them a healthy glow, I think this is moisturizer equivalent to a bronzer, or for those who are familiar, it’s like a tinted moisturizer.


8. Herbalife SKIN Replenishing Night Cream (Step 5)

Ingredients: Vit B, C, E and Aloe Vera, Sunflower seed oil, Macadamia nut oil, Olive oil, Sesame seed oil, Spilanthes Acmella Flower extract.

I definitely recommend this if you’re looking for a night cream that’s hydrating without being oily. I use it especially for nights I have air con turned on to keep my skin hydrated. It’s one of the luxurious night cream that I can safely use without breaking my skin out, woohoo~



2014-06-28 00.48.16 2014-06-28 00.48.47

9. Herbalife SKIN Instant Reveal Berry Scrub

Ingredients: Vit B, C, E and Aloe Vera, Coconut derived cleansing ingredients,  Exfoliating beads and blueberry seeds.

 You can’t see the exfoliating beads which is colourless in the photo above and I love the blueberry seeds which adds to the natural feel and scent of the product. I personally like scrubs with natural fruit seeds for a more raw experience, like I am in touch with nature. Plus, I am a huge fan of Berries (excuse me, who isn’t?) So this is a no brainer, it’s a scrub I recommend~


2014-06-28 00.52.04 2014-06-28 00.52.45

2014-06-28 00.54.21

10. Herbalife SKIN Purifying Mint Clay Mask

Ingredients: Vit B, C, E and Aloe Vera, Bentomite Clay, Rosemary leaf oil and Spearmint Oil.
This rich clay mask has the absorb and toning effects of bentomite clay to remove dirt and excess oil.

I think the photo demonstration above speak for itself!! For the uninitiated, Clay Masks in addition to being super good for removing dirt and excess oil, they are also known to leave the skin soft and hydrated According to Robert and Laura, the Berry Scrub and Clay Mask are popular favourites in US and my personal experience is in agreement with the US sentiments as well, keke. Also, at S$37.75 it is about 30% cheaper than the Helenere one which I have reviewed before! Do I think this is a alternative to the Helenere one? You bet!

All the products are sold singly, and after using the products, here’s my personal recommendation of 2 set formations:

2014-06-06 12.24.01

b.liv’s don’t get mad, get matte! Mask Review

Hey hey! <3

Today I’m gonna share my review of b.liv’s don’t get mad, get matte! mask 😉

2014-04-24 12.54.16

This is a Clarifying Mask with Active Charcoal Mask Sheet (Refreshing Type)
This has  oil control + clarifying + hydrating functions.

This mask promises to be a skin-saver that lifts away impurities and excess sebum, leaving the skin clear, balanced and fabulously glowing.

The unique active charcoal mask sheet touts to act like a magnet to draw out deep dwelling pore cloggers so you can experience hours of TLC that your skin deserves.

Key Active Ingredients & benefits includes:
Retinyl Palmitate: Regulate sebum secretion and stimulate skin regeneration
Zinc Sulfate: Combat excess sebum & Control Surface shine while clarifying the complexion
Willow Bark Extract: Exfoliants to lift away impurities

How to use:
1. Leave the mask on for 15 minutes
2. Gently massage the remaining essence for 30 seconds
3. Leave it for another 30 seconds for complete absoprtion

2014-06-08 16.07.22This is how the mask looks like!

My review: 
The mask is sturdy and of a thicker cotton material compared to others I’ve used before. It’s packed with liquid goodness and there was some tingling sensation on my skin during the 15 minutes that I had one on, which I accrue it to the active ingredients in the mask and that it’s lifting away impurities on my skin. After removal, my face is moist and full of the residual essence and I massaged it into my skin as recommended for 30 seconds. After which, my face is matt and oil free as the mask promised! I would definitely recommend this for people – ladies and gents alike – who have oily skin, use this in the morning before heading out. 😉

Get yours here, 1 box of 7pcs for $17.95

Launch of PCA Smart Skin Solutions at Marina Bay Sands


Hi lovelies! <3

A while back I was invited to attend the launch of PCA Smart Skin Solutions at Marina Bay Sands ballroom.

For the uninitiated, let me fill you in more about PCA Skin, taken from there site here http://www.pcaskin.com/about:

Founded as Physician’s Choice of Arizona, Inc. by an aesthetician working with a handful of physicians, we have evolved into Physicians Care Alliance, LLC, a global organization serving over 5,000 medical practices in the United States, with products sold in over 70 countries around the globe. Throughout our history, we have consistently been referred to as PCA SKIN, a company dedicated to the science of healthy skin.

2014-04-25 18.01.17

Here we are at the panel of discussion by L-R: Douglas Abel, CEO of PCA Skin, Ivana S. Veljkovi, R&D Manager of PCA Skin and CEO of Zoë Nissi Pte Ltd, PCA Skin’s exclusive distributor in Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and Singapore. Zoë Nissi Pte Ltd is a Singapore based company and dedicated in distributing quality and innovative physicians dispensed skin health products. Yes, it means that the skincare products distributed by Zoe Nissi are only available at doctor’s clinics and not available over the counter. More details of where to locate these clinics at the end of the post.

There was an excellent buffet spread at the event thanks to MBS, I must have been busy indulging that I forgot to take photos! >.<

2014-04-25 18.59.35

After the panel of discussion, we headed over to the launch area where we attended an introduction of the PCA Skin brand and a very thorough talk of Dr Ivana explaining the types of skincare products by PCA Skin.

Without further ado, here are the products gifted to the media for review!
2014-06-04 00.39.35

Some of PCA Skin’s star products, L-R:
1. Facial Wash for normal skin type, also suitable for body wash
2. Weightless Protection Broad Spectrum SPF 45
3. ExLinea Peptide Smoothing Serum 

2014-06-04 00.30.33PCA Skin Facial Wash
This gentle latic acid formulation includes a novel cleansing blend that effectively removes environmental impurities and makeup while leaving the skin hydrated, soothed and pH balanced. Recommended for normal skin on the face and body.

Ingredients included:
Lactic Acid: a alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) naturally found in milk and sugars, it moisturizes the skin.
Aloe Vera Leaf Juice: purifying ingredient best known for its softening and soothing benefits.
Allantoin: antioxidant that soothes the skin
Salix Nigra (Willow) Bark Extract – calms and soothes the skin
Directions for use: Apply a dime sized amount to damp skin and massage into a light foaming lather. Rinse with warm water and pat dry. Follow with toner, serums and sunblock in the daytime and moisturiser in the evening.

First of all there is a strong traditional chinese medicine scent to this facial wash, which I accrue to the Willow Bark Extract. I have to say that the scent alone would put me off from using this facial foam for the long term, but as the Chinese idiom goes, 良药苦口, bitter medicine is good for health. As the benefits of the willow bark extract calms and soothes the skin. I just really wish that they could have added in some natural fragrant ingredients to mask the scent though. I first lather the facial wash in my hands and then apply and massage all over my skin. It is a gentle wash and it leaves my skin with just a light tinge of tautness. I would recommend this for people who have sensitive skin and require a wash that is gentle, calming, soothing and free from artificial ingredients.

2014-06-04 00.30.51

Weightless Protection Broad Spectrum SPF 45
This broad spectrum sunscreen provides UVA/UVB protection with the technology of ultra sheer zinc oxide and a blend of additional sunscreen ingredients. It also contains the important antioxidants silybin, also known as milk thistle, and caffaine. Its unique quick absorbing and light finish makes Weightless Protection Broad Spectrum SPF 45 ideal for patients with oily or breakout-prone skin and those who dislike the feel of traditional sunscreen products.

From calming inflamed skin to tightening and toning, antioxidants offer great benefits from natural sources. See more info. here.

Directions for use: smooth on skin after cleansing. Allow to absorb 30 minutes prior to daytime exposure. Reapply after two hours of sun exposure and repeat every two hours as needed. It is recommended for daily use.

As I am writing this review I realize that I have very strong opinions on the scents for all the 3 products for review. For this sunblock, there is a strong sunblock scent reminiscent of heavy duty Banana Boat types of sunblock. I can’t identify where the scent comes from, but I’m guessing it is one or the combination of active ingredients Zinc Oxide and Octinoxate that gives sunblocks that sunblock scent. So once I smell it, I think of swimming pools and sunny beaches – well, you know the places I go to when I need sunblocks.

Once again, gonna let the photos speak for themselves:

A little goes a long way. This is how the sunblock looks like. White and semi-liquid.2014-06-04 00.34.32
After application, a whitish tinge.2014-06-04 00.34.53
After thorough application, it leaves the skin with a white layer, which is super reminiscent of the sunblocks I used to use when I was younger, those days when I go swimming every single day for June holidays! I would recommend this for days when you’re just heading out without make up and of course to the pool or beach where we usually don’t put on make up! On normal days I recommend using this on your hands and legs where its exposed to the sun. Not so recommended for daily application before make up as it tends to be slightly greasy for its heavy duty nature. Well unless, you know you’re heading out to a sunny place and you need that extra coverage. Then yes, go ahead and protect yourself before the scorching sun dries up the sunblock and your skin!

ExLinea Peptide Smoothing Serum
This treatment formulation synergistically hydrates, smoothes and firms aging skin. It contains ingredients that minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Key ingredients:
Acetyl Hexapeptide-8 (Argireline) – works to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinklling.
Sodium Hyaluronate – has the ability to hold 1000 times its weight in water; plays an important role in skin hydration.
Squalene: is a naturally occurring oil found in such foods as olives and wheat germ. It helps to keep the skin moist.
Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Wax: helps to moisturize and smooth the skin.
Directions for use: after cleansing and toning, smooth one to two pumps onto area of wrinkling and laxity, concentrating on the lines around the eyes, forehead and mouth.

No doubt, this is my favourite product of the three. I have been using this for the past week, I love the zesty orange scent and it’s a light liquid, very hydrating and boast of minimizing wrinkles. I have been using it on my forehead and my hands. You’ll see the photos below. I have already been raving about this to my sisters after using it and I am planning to pass to my mum after using it.

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:

April Boulevard Japanese Skincare Review April Boulevard Japanese Skincare Review

April Boulevard Japanese Skincare 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).

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

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
