Hollywood Celebrities’ Skincare Favourite EMK Beverly Hills

Hi Loves!

A while back I was invited to the launch of EMK Beverly Hills skincare at Escentials Paragon outlet and today I’m excited to be sharing with you their star product and more!

EMK Singapore Blogger Review 001

 As their names says, this brand hails from US, Beverly Hills, where many Hollywood celebrities reside. The brand was founded by Emilia Karsh, a professor and chemist who wanted to help her friend who suffered burn scars on the face. She applied the derivatives of human placenta which helped her friend recover and thereafter developed a line of products made from botanical placenta extract which is similar to the human placenta that helps expedite the healing process; thus EMK Beverly Hills was born. The brand was originally only available through dermatologists who recommended it to celebrities like Victoria Beckham; who has been using it for a decade now. Magazine also reports that Simon Cowell is a huge fan of their anti-aging face serum and face mask and the EMK representative told me that Cowell uses half a bottle (too extravagantly) on the face each time and buys them by the dozen.

I had the pleasure to use and review 3 EMK Beverly Hills products; Anti-Aging Facial Cleanser, 3 in 1 Live Anti-Aging Facial Mask and the Supra Night Cream.EMK Singapore Blogger Review 009_Fotor_Collage

The EMK Beverly Hills Anti-Aging Facial Cleanser Anti-Aging Facial Cleanser is a gentle and light cleanser that promises to exfoliate, hydrate and repair. It also comes with a light medicinal scent that’s reminiscent of cough syrup (no kidding). The cleanser contains hyaluronic acid and shea butter to restore the skin’s natural moisture balance. What I like about this cleanser is the light texture which feels luxurious, moisturizing and leaves the skin fresh without drying it out. However I don’t feel its supposed exfoliating effects. This is the first anti-aging facial cleanser I’ve used, as I previously tend to use facial cleanser that leaves my slightly oily skin feeling tauter. Therefore I use this in the morning and use a stronger facial cleanser in the night. I would recommend this facial cleanser especially for people with dry and sensitive skin.

EMK Beverly Hills Supra Night Recovery Cream after application on the skin.

I personally tend to be wary of night cream as they tend to be too enriching for me and cause me to breakout especially in our warm and humid weather. However I am quite in love with this EMK Beverly Hills Supra Night Recovery Cream because even though it’s a cream, it’s light and it absorbs into the skin very quickly. Plus it  has a botanical/fresh floral scent which I love! The cream promises to combat wrinkles, firm and hydrate. I can’t be sure about the wrinkles (thankfully they haven’t showed up), but it definitely absorbs into the skin to firm and hydrate! This EMK Beverly Hills Supra Night Recovery Cream has worked well for me in our Singapore weather and I can imagine it will work great across dry and cold weathers too, I recommend it as an all around ideal night cream for everyone. 🙂

EMK Singapore Blogger Review 005 EMK Singapore Blogger Review 010_Fotor_CollageEMK Beverly Hills 3 in 1 Live Anti-Aging Facial Mask is the pleasant surprise and my favourite of the 3 products in review today! Again, I have a misconception that Anti-Aging products are heavy and too enriching for me. However this product completely proved me wrong and it’s a total winner. The EMK Beverly Hills 3 in 1 Live Anti-Aging Facial Mask promises to 1. Detoxify, softens and soothes, 2. Stimulates and boosts collagen, 3. Revitalizes & deeply hydrates. You can use this either as a 15 min mask and wash away, or apply generously and leave it in for a night and wash in the morning. I tried both and I LOVE the effect after leaving it in for a night and I would recommend the latter strongly. EMK Beverly Hills 3 in 1 Live Anti-Aging Facial Mask definitely hydrated, calmed and clarify my blemished skin, after leaving it in overnight, I awake to refreshed skin that’s clearer and brighter. I’ve been recommending this to my friends and it’s now on par with my other Holy Grail item, Estee Lauder’s Advance Night Repair. It’s that good, guys. I strongly recommend this EMK Beverly Hills 3 in 1 Live Anti-Aging Facial Mask for folks looking for a mask that will make your tired and blemished skin feel and look better/great after a night’s sleep!

Thank you EMK Singapore for the event invite and products for review!



Look & Feel Younger with Jeunesse Luminesce Serum & Reserve Gel

Hi Loves!

Jeunesse Anti Aging Serum Jeunesse Reserve Blogger Review 003

Today I’m excited to share about two products that I’ve been using & consuming respectively; the Jeunesse Luminesce Cellular Rejuvenation Serum  & Reserve.

Jeunesse Anti Aging Serum Jeunesse Reserve Blogger Review 001

When I review a product for my blog, I usually start using the product without reading the product information and other reviews online, so that I won’t be affected by what the product boasts or be inclined to write similar things. This is because I believe in sharing my own experience, which may or may not be the same as others. And for this product, my experience coincides with the very benefits that they boast of! 🙂

Jeunesse Luminesce Cellular Rejuvenation Serum is touted to be an anti-aging serum, but it’s really moreee that that! As its name suggests, this product rejuvenates your skin from its cells. As such, it also works as a repair serum, or a serum that helps wounds to recover at a faster rate. Personally my skin is still quite young so I can’t testify much to the anti-aging effects of a serum. What I do like about this product is that it is a lightweight gel that is easily absorbed by the skin and it keeps my skin moisturized, long into the night till the next morning – so my skin looks brighter and softer instead of dull and dry. I also like that this product is safe to use for my normal-oily combination skin. 🙂

 Jeunesse Luminesce Cellular Rejuvenation Serum on the left shows it’s a watery gel like consistency and when it’s applied on the right, the skin is immediately brighter/fairer, appears smoother and this is the effect that I also get when I apply it on my face t night, it lasts till the next morning. I have applied it for both my morning and night skincare routine, but I prefer to use this only at night because there is a strong scent. What I do to combat the scent is I use another scented skin First Treatment Essence (there are many brands available, SK-II, Laneige, I currently use My Face Shop SMIM one), which also conveniently helps to prep my skin to absorb more of the consequent product used, in this case the Luminesce serum.

I mentioned above that the Luminesce serum also helps you to recover from wounds faster, I don’t have a personal experience, but here’s a Youtube video that is really super convincing, so much so that I actually feel happy for these interviewed users for having this Luminesce serum to improve their skin to a healthier and younger state that’s either due to normal aging or damaged from injury. Note: some of the users’ skin are really bloodied due to accidents, so don’t watch this will eating or it may spoil your appetite.


I would recommend this  Jeunesse Luminesce Cellular Rejuvenation Serum for users that are looking for a product to reverse the signs of aging on your skin, to have brighter, plump looking and smoother skin and also if you or you know someone with a fresh injury and want the wound to recover faster and reduce scarring!

Jeunesse Anti Aging Serum Jeunesse Reserve Blogger Review 004

What I like about this product is its amazing taste! It tastes like red wine, due to the red grape extract aka Resveratrol, with a wonderful blend of other fruits such as Acai Berry, Blueberry, Pomegranate, Aloe Vera, Grape Seed, Dark Cherry (another of my fave too!) and Green Tea (major love for this too!). It comes in a big box of 30 ml gel packs, you can choose to take it in the morning or after dinner at night. I’ve been told by the Jeunesse distributor that it’s best consumed in the morning, before you eat your breakfast. This is because this product will increase your metabolism rate, kickstarting your day and gives you more energy. I like that the Reserve helps my digestion better, when I take it in the night, the next day I can move my bowels easily! 😛 Amazingly too, it’s only 13 calories even thought it’s a real sweet treat. Yay!

I also really like how conveniently packed these are! I like to put them in my bag and consume them after dinner when I’m out – they don’t take up much space and I never have to worry about spillage either. Plus with this design I squeeze out everything and no wastage either!

I recommend the Jeunesse Reserve if you want to increase your metabolism rate and a healthy supplement to kickstart your day and/or if you’re always travelling and don’t have time to buy and eat fresh fruits! This is also really ideal for busy executives because it’s super convenient to integrate into your lifestyle – put a box in your car or office and eat it either in the morning on the way to work or at night while on the way home. 🙂

You can watch this video about the benefits & science behind Reserve!
