BEAUTI INSTINCT X CLEAN & CLEAR

Time for another skin SOS situation now that Chinese New Year & Valentine’s Day are just around the corner. Please keep those congestion far away & never let them come back. The real culprit of this problem, I seriously blame you pineapple tarts & all the yummy goodies! Bleah.

Oh man the sight of my left cheek makes me shudder. Save me now Beauti Instinct!

I was recommended the Clean & Clear Treatment – an exclusive formula treatment targeted to control sebum-regulation. Begone clogged pores, it’s time to regain a healthy & fresh appearance.

What I really like about this treatment is that it removes shine from the skin & reduces excess active sebum, definitely well-suited for my current problem area. Immediately after, I noticed my face definitely felt a lot cleaner & less oily. Hurray!

CIMG1331b

Here’s how I look four days later with just tinted sunblock & a dash of eyeliner! Thank you Beauti Instinct once again for always treating my skin problems, I don’t know what I’d do without you!

This treatment showed some very distinctive results on my face & therefore I’d love to share it with all you girls who are facing the same problems as I am.

HIMALAYA HERBALS X GIVEAWAY

When it comes to packing for overseas, I’m quite the last minute packer & end up having plenty of full-sized toiletries. Yes I take so much pride in my skincare (especially moisturizer) but the weight adds up & it gets irksome. I dread having to lug such a heavy toiletries bag around, not only does it make my body ache, I become such a cranky travel companion you can’t even stand another minute with me.

CIMG7720b

I’m headed to Korea in a couple of weeks & the weather’s going to be pretty cold I heard. I can’t remember the last time I went to a cold country & actually have nice moisturized skin. I wasn’t looking forward to having cracked skin in such a beautiful country & someone somewhere seems to know that. Welcome aboard Himalaya Herbals Nourishing Skin Cream, I’m going to put a piece of you in my handbag to keep my skin nourished on the go – from top to toe.

CIMG7716b

Yes I know earlier I said do away with heavy full-sized toiletries. But guess what, it’s not going to be an issue since my Himalaya Herbals Nourishing Skin Cream is a nice 50ml tub size. So lightweight I’d barely know it’s there!

CIMG7701b

I’ve tried out this moisturizer & I must say its lightweight texture really appealed to me. You know how some pricey moisturizers have awesome conditioning power but is greasy to the max? Well, with the Himalaya Herbals Nourishing Skin Cream, it’s goodness in a tub which does an equally good job minus the grease & the hefty price tag.

CIMG7734b

Due to its light texture, this product is suitable for use in Singapore. Despite the weather here not being the same as other cold countries, it can be absorbed quickly into the skin & not leave a sticky after feel.

CIMG7738b

Don’t worry, this is suitable for all skin types because it’s au-naturale & specially designed for today’s skincare needs using 100% herbal actives of Aloe Vera & Winter Cherry. I am personally a huge fan of Winter Cherry for its anti-inflammatory properties. Yes I have pretty sensitive skin & two weeks into using this, my skin’s looking more hydrated than ever.

Himalaya products retails at $5.90 for a 50ml tub & is now available at Watsons/Guardian/Unity/Giant/Mustafa &other leading beauty stores!

CIMG7744b

And now, together with Himalaya, we have decided to do a giveaway for all my lovely readers! 10 units of Himalaya Nourishing Cream (50ml) are up for grabs! All you have to do is answer this question ‘What is the main herbal ingredient in this multi-uses Nourishing Skin Cream?’ Email me your answers at agrichicavenue@gmail.com¬†together with your name & contact number!

Don’t forget to check out http://www.himalayaherbals.com & have a good weekend!


XANNA REIS X ACCESSORIES HAVEN

It’s a universal truth that all women are obsessed with fashion & playing dress-up. Any guesses on how many pieces of apparels I own in my wardrobe? An astronomical figure, I guiltily confess!

What I notice throughout the years of my ever-changing fashion sense & style, there is a constant thing amidst my chameleon tendencies. My soft spot for beautiful jewelry.

CIMG2486b

Everyone knows I love accessorizing. When it comes to sparkly fine jewelry, I know I absolutely cannot resist.

There is a reason for the eternal fascination women have with diamonds. The moment a woman puts on her jewelry, it makes her feel special & she exudes a kind of elegance. This is why I believe, every woman should own a piece of jewelry that brings out her charm.

When it comes to jewelry, what is my preference?

xannareis1

What you see on me is a Xanna Reis Prima Swarovski Jewelry Set in Scarlet Red, isn’t it glamorous?

CIMG2483b

This exquisite red jewelry set made with platinum plating & Swarovski Crystals is from Xanna Reis, an online jewelry & accessories store boasting of the finest selections in town.

Not only is it perfect for the Chinese New Year occasion, red is a colour that I love to wear again & again because it flatters my fair complexion so well!

I am all ready to impress this Chinese New Year, are you?

CIMG2466b

Another very exquisite piece of accessory that is upcoming on Xanna Reis is this exotic Gothic Mystic Black Jewel Necklace, which I’m so smitten with. Very honored to be the one giving you a sneak preview!

CIMG2448b

This is THE necklace to glam up any classic or simple dresses you might find too boring to wear on its own, it’s gonna bring you so many compliments!

CIMG2446b

Ladies, you might wish to LIKE their facebook page HERE to be the first to know as they will have many more pretty designs coming up!

Fine quality jewelry at affordable prices is hard to come by these days, so my readers can now be thankful for Xanna Reis!

Happy jewelry hunting at www.xannareis.com !

Very, very limited stocks for the designs I’m wearing ūüôā

MILLY’S X LONG BEACH

Time to give my nails a new makeover for the month! Oh wow Milly’s you’ve got me addicted to pretty-looking nails each month. Chipped nails was a common sight on me in the past, but boy have I gotten more vain as time goes by. Flipping through nail art magazines to get inspiration for my next design has become a hobby!

CIMG0602b

Not to worry, no matter how intricate or impossible you think the design is, Chloe would always exceed your high expectations & impress you. Yes she’s THAT good I have to book my appointments with her one month in advance.

Loving the combination of pink & black. Girly with that touch of edge is how I’m feeling at the moment. Thank you so much Chloe for making me obsessed with staring at my nails all day long!

PAINT ME REAL X VALENTINE’S GIFT

Are you the type who gets all stressed out when it comes to getting gifts for your loved ones? Plenty of times, you wreck your brains, asking yourself umpteen times ‘WHAT SHOULD I GET?’ Shopping around town can be quite a hassle & because your eyes have gone cuckoo from all that browsing, you end up getting something that comes across as insincere.

Let’s put an end to situations as such! This Valentine’s Day let’s do something a lil’ different. I’ve taken gazillion pictures with the lover & I’m planning on giving him a nice surprise for this special day. I’m so done with generic gifts which can be grabbed off the shelves readily.

paintmereal5

Recently, I was introduced to this cool site – Paint Me Real. Out of curiosity, I submitted a picture of mine & was waiting to see the outcome before I decided to proceed with my second order.

It took about 2-4 weeks for the order to be processed, painted & delivered to my doorstep.

Let’s take a look at the original photo first.

And now the painted version. SO IMPRESSED I GOT IT FRAMED! Placing it on my living room wall for sure!

Can you picture your other half’s surprise when he sees a picture of the both of you translated into oil painting? It’s definitely a thoughtful gift & something different in a good way. Roses will wither & die but this wouldn’t! I can’t wait to see the look on the boy’s face when our couple portrait arrives!

Here’s how it works!

THREE BLIND MICE X SOCIETYSAKE

Just a real quick & short update on what I’ve been up to! Please bear with me if there’s not much of personal entries on this space of mine as I just got back from overseas & really the amount of adverts I’ve to get done by next week is simply overwhelming. With the new year, there comes new pressures. Don’t be mistaken, I’m not complaining. In fact, I’m so thankful that 2014 is looking productive. Work mode go go go!

I’ve also decided to revise my advertorial rates for this year! Drop me an email at agrichicavenue@gmail.com for enquiries.

THE PRESTIGE X LIPS ENHANCEMENT

Just a week ago I received an email from The Prestige Eyebrow & Lash Specialist to try out their wide array of services. What a good way to kickstart my 2014! Prior to this, I’ve seen the other girls emerging from this one-stop beauty parlor with beautiful dolly lashes & well-sculpted brows. I can now stop being green with envy!

Check out their website HERE & also LIKE their facebook page HERE.

Nowadays, it’s really not a difficult task to fake that ‘natural beauty’. The existence of eyebrow embroidery, eyelash extensions/perms, eyeliner & lips embroidery make getting ready in the mornings so much faster & it doesn’t even matter if I snooze my alarm twice. It seriously makes a huge difference & it looks nowhere near gaudy.

Checked out The Prestige Eyebrow & Lash Specialist for the first time. Lavishly decorated in velvet & gold, just being there made me feel like royalty. I LOVE. Thank you Sara for being such a good host to us! Excited to get my eyelash perm done since I want to skip the whole ‘curl & mascara’ routine before heading out each day.

I also decided to give the Lips Embroidery Enhancement a shot too! I’ve been obsessed with lipsticks for almost a decade now & you know how over-using it makes your lips a tad darker upon removing makeup. And that’s a sight I don’t enjoy looking at the moment I wake up. Baby pink lips come to me! I’m also looking to achieve a fuller-looking set of lips!

Here I am without a trace of lipstick/lipgloss ready to get my lips enhanced!

CIMG0499b

CIMG0518b

Initially, I was concerned about pain but my mind was at ease as soon as the numbing cream took effect. In fact, I was in dreamland throughout the whole process. Seriously no discomfort at all! It might look red for now, but in a couple of days the skin would flake off & it’d fade into a nice pink. Meanwhile, let me enjoy my pouty lips while it lasts!

Lips Embroidery Enhancement is most suited for dark coloured lips, uneven lips shape or for those who desire for pinkish lips.

Now that’s legendary.

Can’t wait to get a brow revival done on my sometimes unruly brows & at the same time hoping that my luck would be incredibly awesome in 2014! Yes I’m a firm believer of Feng Shui. Please work your magic hands on me Irene!
