Boost Your Skincare with CNP Invisible Peeling Booster

Hi Loves!

Today’s the last year of 2015, what are your plans for countdown? I read an article by Paulo Coelho on Facebook about how we should all learn to let go of the things in 2015 so as to move on into the year 2016 and be ready for all it has to offer us. It is in-line with this time and season that I’m introducing a relatively new product that I’ve been using and enjoying… The CNP Laboratory Invisible Peeling Booster!

This product removes dead skin cells. Exposure to UV rays from the sun can cause skin to become thick and dull-looking from the accumulation of dead skin cells. Exfoliating is an important step in basic skincare, but we also want a product that’s not harsh for our skin, that’s where CNP’s Invisible Peeling Booster comes in!
CNP Invisible Peeling Booster

I would recommend using this product interchangeably with your current FTE (First treatment essence), on days when you can see dull skin and want a mild yet effective exfoliating product. I use this product after cleansing and before toning, with a cotton pad and helps me to remove the dead skin cells.

For more product details, see below.

After its debut in Korea last year, the first production of the Invisible Peeling Booster was completely sold out and it was so popular it won two media awards in a short time. This is a convenient and gentle peeling product that requires no washing after use. It is an easy-to-use yet intelligent product that enhances absorption of your follow-on skin care.

This product contains a number of cutting-edge ingredients that work in unity to transform your skin:

 Polyhydroxy Acids (PHA)

CNP has invested an expansive amount of research on PHA—CNP holds the patent and IP rights for this research. Developed for the CNP Dermatology Clinic customers, PHA is an ingredient in CNP’s basic daily skincare, implementing gentle peeling on a daily basis.  The Invisible Peeling Booster is the only peeling product of its kind that requires no rinsing. Containing Gluconolactone and Lactobacillus Bionic cosmetic composition in PHA, this Booster improves skin health by removing dead skin cells

 CNP Anti-irritant Complex

AHA and BHA are the acids commonly used in most exfoliants. Not so in CNP’s products. PHA is hypoallergenic and is less irritating as there is no rubbing or massaging required to remove dead skin cells. In addition, the Booster contains Panthenol and Allantoin, ingredients that soothe and reduce any opportunity of skin irritation. What you get is radiant skin without the redness.

Natural Moisturizing Factor (NMF) Complex

This Complex contains hypoallergenic ingredients such as Sodium PCA, Trehalose, Glucose, Urea and Allantoin which helps to maintain skin health and retain moisture. They are all safe for sensitive skin.


An appropriate amount is evenly spread on face prior to using toner.  The Invisible Peeling Booster is used after washing face in morning and evening on a daily basis.  No rinsing or wiping is required.


Our skin lacks the ability to self-exfoliate, hence dead skin cells build up over time.  As a result, skin begins to look dry, dull and aged. What’s more, when keratin builds up, skincare products will have difficulty penetrating beyond the skin. 

Experience 7 remarkable skin improvements after using CNP Laboratory Invisible Peeling Booster for 7 Days:

1-      Boost Dead Skin Cell Removal – PHA removes dead skin cells on the surface of the skin and normalize the cycle of dead skin cell generation without irritation.

2-      Refine Skin Tone – Skin texture is smoother when skin maintains hydrated after peeling through the moisturizing action of NMF complex.

3-      Increase Skin Transparency – Removing of the dead skin cells, improving the blood circulation in facial skin and improving the dull skin tone.

4-      Brighten Skin Tone – Cordyceps Sinensis extracts boost overall skin health and improve skin is radiance.

5-      Long Lasting Hydration – Peeling can be drying, the moisturizing system contains Panthenol and the NMF complex improves the ability to maintain moisture skin deep. 

6-      Regulate Sebum – Skin produces less by-products resulting in an unconducive environment for blemish to form.  Skin oil & moisture balance is achieved.

7-      Reduce Redness – Allantoin is an anti-inflammatory agent which reduces redness in skin tone and skin sensitivity.

Peeling is the first step in a skincare regime after cleansing. It enhances the efficacy of the products that follow on.  The Invisible Peeling Booster causes minimal stress to skin and is gentle and mild, perfect for your daily regime.  It is used daily after skin is cleansed, the skin and moisturizes at the same time. 

 The Invisible Peeling Booster is available exclusively at Guardian Health & Beauty Stores and CNP website.

Watsons Exclusive DHC Skincare delivers hydration, clarity & pore care for your skin

Hi Loves!

A few months back, I attend a Watsons and DHC media launch to learn more about DHC Japan’s eight new products to provide aqua goodness, effective cleansing solutions, combat excessive sebum, and help fight pesky pore concerns.

DHC Skincare Launch 006

The new range of products includes the Placenta2 Hyaluronic4 Watergel, Face Wash, Water-friendly Cleansing Oil F1, Rich Eye Zone Care Pack and the Pore Range. The new products focus on being natural, mild yet effective and are all free of colorant, fragrance, and paraben to provide optimum results without stripping the skin of its natural healing properties.

I enjoy using DHC’s Placenta2 Hyaluronic4 Watergel, which is a lightweight moisturizing gel to hydrate my skin after cleansing and toner and before my makeup.

More about the various products below!

DHC Skincare Launch 001DHC Placenta2 Hyaluronic4 Watergel (200ml, SGD 39.90)

A lightweight moisturizing gel, DHC Placenta2 Hyaluronic4 Watergel is formulated to provide optimum benefits to the skin. The product includes two kinds of placenta extracts to bring out clarity in skin, four kinds of hyaluronic acids for moisturisation, ceramide to act as a barrier from impurities, two types of collagen, elastin and proteoglycan for firmness and elasticity. It is the perfect solution to get hydrated skin with just one drop to seal in all the moisture.

DHC Skincare Launch 002DHC Water-friendly Cleansing Oil F1 (150ml, SGD 29.90)

Say goodbye to double cleansing with DHC’s Water-friendly Cleansing Oil F1 that acts as both a makeup remover and facial cleanser. It is a convenient and effective solution to remove makeup and cleanse pores while preventing dryness and roughness of the skin. The Water-friendly Cleansing Oil F1 efficiently removes even the toughest waterproof mascara, eyeliner and stubborn blackheads gently without having to subject your skin to harsh abrasions. The combination of ingredients such as licorice derivative and aloe extract prevents roughness of skin while virgin olive oil and squalene produces a moisturising effect, leaving skin feeling moist and supple after use.

DHC Skincare Launch 003DHC Face Wash (200ml, SGD 36.90)

Featuring purifying rosemary and various plant-derived moisturizing ingredients with low stimulus cleansing components which condition the skin to a smooth and moisturising texture, the mildly acidic and milky medicated face wash has a pH balance that is close to that of regular healthy skin. DHC Face Wash thoroughly removes dirt and dead skin cells without stripping the skin of necessary sebum while providing moisture. This mild yet effective product is especially suitable for users with dry or sensitive skin.

DHC Skincare Launch 004DHC Rich Eye Zone Care Pack (6 packs, SGD 23.90)

The DHC Rich Eye Zone Care Pack is a specially shaped eye mask sheet which cares for the corner of the eyes, eyelids and under-eye area in a single application. The care pack contains four kinds of multi peptide – Acetyl hexapeptide-8, Penta peptide-18, Acetyl decapeptide-3 and Ogligo peptide-20 to fight wrinkles caused by dryness. It also contains nano collagen, nano hyaluronic acid, nano elastin and virgin olive oil to provide moisture to the eye area. Featuring an airy sheet that is soft and gentle on delicate eye areas, the mask fits flexibly to cover both top and bottom eyelids and the corner of the eyes. This allows the mask to infiltrate beauty essences deep into the keratoid layer immediately upon application. This product is especially suitable for users concerned about wrinkles around the eye area caused by dryness and sagging.

DHC Skincare Launch 005DHC Pore Range

The new DHC Pore Range consists of four products – Pore Face Wash, Pore Lotion, Pore Essence and Pore Milk. Each product carries a unique function to help users fight elements that cause enlarged, saggy and clogged pores. The DHC Pore Range contains no artificial fragrance and instead consists of a natural citrus based formula that includes extracts of rum bud, calendula officinalis, mandarin orange skin, grapefruit skin, lemon skin and orange fruit to give off a light and soothing citrusy scent.

DHC Pore Face Wash (120g, SGD 24.90)

Designed to dissolve and remove oxidised sebum dirt that clogs pores, the Pore Face Wash contains fine baking soda powder to provide a gentle scrub wash texture that washes away keratin plugs. This ultra foaming wash also contains mild peeling ingredients, France brown algae and plantago major to brighten skin and plant-based ingredients like glycerin glucoside and trehalose derivative to lock- in moisture levels in the skin. In addition, the presence of olive leaf extract, which is high in anti-oxidant, protects the skin from elements that cause damage and gives off a refreshing sensation. The product, which comes in a paste-like consistency, is recommended for all skin types and can be used selectively on affected areas.

DHC Pore Lotion (120ml, SGD 31.90)

The Pore Lotion features a nano-micell delivery carrier system that helps discharge beauty ingredients into inner skin layers more effectively. The lotion also contains mushroom extract and PCA zinc that acts like an astringent to help tighten pores, provide moisture and suppress sebum production.

DHC Pore Essence (20G, SGD 34.90)

The DHC Pore Essence on the other hand, features a micro capsule delivery carrier system that detects ion imbalance within the skin, and discharges beauty ingredients where necessary. This helps the products to effectively react and discharge the ingredients to troubled skin areas. The DHC Pore Essence also contains mushroom extract that acts as an astringent to tighten and moisturize pores, Vitamin E derivative to provide enhanced antioxidation, anti- inflammatory, and sebum absorption powder to absorb excessive sebum and sweat.

DHC Pore Milk (80ml, SGD 31.90)

The Pore Milk similarly features the micro capsule delivery system and contains ceramide VI – the same beauty ingredient contained in milk that normalizes turnover. Beauty ingredients – African whitewood tree bark extract helps control oil while Japanese rose fruit extract helps fight blemishes and oxidization, acts as an astringent, conditions dead skin cells, moisten pores and promote elasticity and melanin production.

The Pore Lotion, Pore Essence and Pore Milk contain artichoke leaf extract to promote metabolism and moisture to help tighten enlarged, saggy and clogged pores and increase elasticity and firmness. The presence of vitamin C derivative in these three products helps to control sebum to clarify and brighten the skin. Furthermore, these products contain oxyresver atrol – an anti-oxidation, anti-aging, anti-inflammatory ingredient and are all suitable for users with oily and combination skin.

DHC Skincare Launch 007 DHC Skincare Launch 008

I recommend DHC products if you re looking for natural, gentle/mild skincare. The new range of DHC products are exclusively at selected Watsons stores island wide.

Thank you Watsons, DHC Singapore and Touch PR for the event invite and products for review.

Combat skin woes with Etude House Moistfull White Mela Perfect Serum & Zero Sebum Line

Hi Loves!

A while back Etude House launched their Moistfull White Mela Perfect Serum, a whitening serum that promises to transform your skin from the inside out for a flawlessly radiant complexion. Along with the serum, Etude House also has a new, Zero Sebum Line to rescue all princesses from the dreaded sebum built up for beautifully matte skin, all day long! Zero Sebum Line features three products for a complete sebum-free solution that removes, controls and absorb sebum throughout the day.

Etude House Sebum Control 002The Moistfull White Mela Perfect Serum is a whit-ish translucent watery consistency serum which I apply after my toner and before my make up base. It is quite moisturising as well. I would recommend if you’re looking for an affordable moisturizing and whitening serum.

Key ingredients include Pearl and Lavender Extracts which correct blemishes and spots while kissing the skin with glowing radiance! Hyaluronic Acid and Hydrolyzed Collagen nourishes and further hydrates your skin to keep it ever youthful, supple and bouncing with vitality! A good dose of Vitamin C Derivatives helps to lighten your skin naturally, penetrating deep into skin for a luminous effect everyone will notice!

Etude House Sebum Control 001The Zero Sebum Line include 1. White Sebum Clear 2. All Day Matte Gel and 3. Drying Powder.

The Zero Sebum Line is equipped with active ingredients such as Sugar Polymer, Cotton Flower and Mixed Herb Extracts, the Zero Sebum Line effectively ensures your skin stays Sebum- free and pretty throughout the day. Sugar Polymer with Plankton Extract absorbs the sebum above the skin to help skin remain powdery all day long. The Cotton Extract prevents skin damage caused by sebum while the Mixed Herb Extract helps to relax and soothe skin, with an added antibacterial effect so that your skin gets the protection and care it truly deserves

Zero Sebum White Sebum Clear is to be used after cleansing and toning, on areas like forehead, nose and chin and it will dissolve white bumpy sebum without water.

Zero Sebum All Day Matt Gel is a finishing gel that contains natural organic grain powder, which collects and controls the sebum for all day long sebum-free skin. To be used as a finishing step in the mornings and evenings. Dispense an appropriate amount and apply softly on skin in an inward to outward motion.

Last but not the least, Zero Sebum Drying Powder is a Pact Powder that absorbs sebum without affecting make up. Contains Natural Mineral Powder (80%) that adheres onto skin texture to prevent caking. Tap on areas with sebum trouble after skincare or make up application. I like to use this powder on my nose and forehead after applying my foundation to matt-ify the areas. I recommend this if you have oily T-zones and want to minimize shine, you can apply in the morning and reapply throughout the day.

ETUDE HOUSE Moistfull White Mela Perfect Serum retails for $40. The serum and ETUDE HOUSE Zero Sebum Line retails for White Sebum Clear $19.90, All Day Matte Gel $19.90 and Drying Powder $13.90. all ETUDE HOUSE outlets in Singapore.

Etude House Beauty Shot Face Blur & Liquid Lips

Hi Loves!

This blog post and review is a little late in coming. Just in this year alone, I’ve published 170 articles and several more dozens to go and whilst I was preparing for another Etude House product feature and review post, I realized that I haven’t blogged about this from many months back, oops! It must have fell through the cracks, nonetheless it’s still not too late as these products are still on sale in stores. 🙂

To help you to achieve the perfect selfie shot, Etude House launched their Beauty Shot Face Blur (S$27.90) which acts as an all in one primer + foundation base, blurring out imperfections for a smoother skin texture. Also, to give an insta-colour to the face, pair your foundation with Color in Liquid Lips (S$17.90), a combination of lipstick, gloss and stain all in one. I call it the liquid version of Etude House iconic Dear My Wish Lips Talk, really and gloss gives a sexier pout on photos. What’s not to love? Etude House Beauty Shot Face Blur and Liquid Lips 003 Etude House Beauty Shot Face Blur and Liquid Lips 001 Etude House Beauty Shot Face Blur and Liquid Lips 002 Etude House Beauty Shot Face Blur and Liquid Lips 004Also grabbed a refill for my Any Cushion in Peach (Primer), Eyebrow Liner and Eyeshadow applicators during a members’ sale.

Leather & Lace

Hi loves!

Do you love the leather & lace combination like I do? If the outfit seems similar, it’s because I wore this out to Affordable Art Fair 2015.

Super love this cute Crossbody Bag with chain from Sammydress, available here. I bought my white lace dress from Temt in Singapore. You can also shop from Sammydress’s collection of white lace dresses here. Alternatively, I also recommend this grey lace sweater mini dress. The pieces from Sammydress are super affordable with most pieces below $20, and even below $10. The quality and finishing may not be perfect but they definitely provide a great variety. Items ship from China and takes 1-2 weeks to arrive.

Thank you Sammydress for leather bag and grey lace sweater mini dress!



Your girlfriend will love Anna Sui’s Romantic & Holiday Snow Christmas Collection

Hi Loves!

A while back I shared about Anna Sui’s Autumn collection and share a preview of their new Romantica fragrance. Today I’m back to share with you more about the Romantica fragrance and their Christmas, limited edition Holiday Snow collection!!!

Anna Sui Romantica ReviewIf fairytales were flowers, they will smell like Anna Sui Romantica fragrance – charming, fresh & fabulous~ I love everything about the fragrance, the sweet mesmerizing floral fruit scent, to it’s feminine & girly intricately designed packaging with gold floral details.

Classified as a Sparkling Floral, it is at once joyous and sensuous, lively and exciting. The top note opens with a floaty feeling of Calabria Bergamot, Mandarin Essence, Sparkling Pomegranate, and Watery Quince. It is giddy, it is glorious, it is like falling in love all over again.

Soon to be followed by Rose de Mai, Osmanthus Absolute, Jasmine Petals, and Orange Blossom, the romance builds to a crescendo, awakening a deeper sensuality. Water Lily and Peony Blossom add a touch of whimsy and freshness to the heart.

And then it settles with White Ceylon Cedarwood, Sheer Amber, Indonesian Sandalwood, and Creamy Musk.

Anna Sui Romantica 30ml: $68
Anna Sui Romantica 50ml: $93
Anna Sui Romantica 75ml: $119

Anna Sui Holiday Snow Thaw Heart ReviewAnna Sui’s Holiday Snow Collection offers 2 options, Frozen Love & Thawed Heart ($88 per collection), pictured.
Each collection comes with:
• Rose Cheek Color N 6g
• Lip Stick M 3g
• Color Powder 2.3g
• Box(Size: W150mm × H58mm × D103mm/Material: Wood, artificial leather)

Anna Sui’s Holiday Snow Collection comes in a very precious and attractive packaging which definitely makes for a great Christmas gift for your girlfriend. Priced at $88, it’s also a value set with 3 beauty products and a solid wooden casing which is super pretty!

E Pure Membranous Jelly Mask Review

Hi Loves!

Are you a facial mask lover? If you are, I am sure you are familiar with mask sheets which are popular in Korea and Taiwan, as well as Clay masks which are popular in US. But, have you heard about Jelly Mask? Well, I sure haven’t before I tried ePure Membranous Jelly Mask and I must say, it is a very special mask!
E Pure Membranous Jelly Mask Blogger ReviewePure Membranous Jelly Mask comes in a box of 3, with a spatula, $39.90 / box.

Screen Shot 2015-12-14 at 11.13.14 pm

Main ingredients include Alpha Arbutin, Seaweed Extract, Epure Natural Vanila Scent, Jojoba Leaf Extract, & Hyaluronic Acid – Triple Moist Complex (HA-TMC).

ePure mask boasts that after 25 minutes, it leaves the skin 60% more hydrated, 55% more refined and 52% brighter.

Screen Shot 2015-12-14 at 11.13.26 pm

1. Apply jelly mask with the spatula, apply a thick layer 0.3-0.5cm.
2. Relax and leave on for 15-30 minutes.
3. Wash it off using warm water.
4. Mask can be apply to eyes area to lighten dark eyes circle.

For the first month of using éPure, use 3 times a week.
After the first month of using éPure, you can cut down on the frequency to once OR twice a week depending on the results that you are after.
Mask can be applied to eye area to lighten dark eye circles and problem area can apply thicker for better result.

My Review
I really enjoyed using the ePure jelly mask and can see why it has become quite the cult mask in Asia. Whilst the application requires more effort than a facial sheet mask, the experience is also correspondingly more refreshing. The jelly mask is translucent and clear from the sachet and after leaving it on for 30 minutes, it is as though the jelly absorbs all the oil and dirt from the pores that it becomes slightly cloudy when removed. The other remarkable quality of the mask is that it leaves the skin super refreshed, which can be accrued to the Hyaluaronic Acid which deeply hydrates the skin and leaving it supple for many hours.

PURCHASE NOW to enjoy the launching price of $49.90 (U.P.$59.90) for a pack of 5. Log on to www.epureskin.com.sg Or PM them on facebook.com/epureskinsg!

The Body Shop Christmas Party

Hi Loves!

Christmas is literally just round the corner and I’ll be blogging about all things Christmas related these few days! ^^ The Body Shop hosted the first Christmas media preview (that I’ve attended, that is) which I think is more appropriate to call it a party, it was so much fun! After learning about all the new Christmas products for sale and the charity work The Body Shop is taking part in this Christmas, we went around the venue making Christmas themed souvenirs, food & drinks. Just thinking about it now makes me want to organize a similar Christmas party with a few friends and have fun! Enough of my introduction, scroll on for photos and captions! ^^

The Body Shop Christmas 2015 Media Preview 002We walked down this black infographic path while also learning about striking information about water scarcity in some places that WaterAid is reaching out to.

For over 650 million people across the world, access to safe water is not even possible and around 1,400 people die each day from diseases caused by dirty water and poor sanitation.

This Christmas, The Body Shop is partnering with international charity WaterAid to help transform lives through access to safe water. For every specially selected gift bought, WaterAid can provide a family in Ethiopia with one day of safe water.

Purple Hair @ Chez Vous

Hi Loves!

Well, a few months back I sported purple hair, just in case you missed it on my IG. I did it for Chez Vous’ look book – for a detailed explanation of how to achieve the look, check it out here! For all 20 look, see here.

What I learnt about sporting purple hair:
1. It required bleaching my hair 3x to get a blondish colour before dye-ing purple. It lasts for about 3 weeks before it all fades, leaving just a tad purple at the base.
2. A lot of people will come up to you and say “Wow, you’re so brave!” which I later figured out it’s a nicer way of saying, “Wow, that’s crazy!”. Yes, really. That said, it was a real conversation starter. People I’m not really close to at work/office will start conversations with my hair colour “Oh, it has faded? That fast?” “How do you maintain this!”.
3. Speaking of maintenance. Let’s just say that crazy coloured hair that requires bleaching your hair 3x is not for the faint hearted or the lazy (which I am, but for my hair… I was rather diligent..). I won’t bore you with the details, but if you are keen, maybe I will share another post of how diligent I was in hair maintenance, post purple hair. Honestly I won’t dare repeat such a feat without the trusted hair directors at Chez Vous. Leave the bleach on too long or too near your scalp and you might get burned. It will damage your hair, that’s for sure, but it’s how you lessen the damage during the colour and how you take care with post hair colour treatments, to give your hair some semblance of life…
4. Once in my life is enough. I don’t regret having my hair in a pretty purple, YOLO, guys. Gotta try it at least once! And if not now, then when? I don’t want to be 30, married with kids and sporting purple hair. Not judging those that do, just not something I’d do when I’m 30… I think.

Wow, didn’t know there was so much I had to share about my purple hair colour journey!

Some snaps from when I had purple hair!:
