BIOSKIN X KOGEN DETOX TEA

Recently, I’ve been approached by BIOSKIN to try out their treatments & honestly, I was really excited to embark on a journey with them to attain stellar-looking skin. They’ve been around a long time & I’ve heard so much raves about their latest BIO P2x ACNE SKIN TREATMENT.

You know how many beauty salons practice the extraction method & sometimes if not done properly, it leads to scarring. But over here at BIOSKIN, big hurray to no extraction because the BIO P2X does an even better job minus the pain. I admit I’m guilty of picking on my blackheads/whiteheads at my nose sometimes up to twice a week (I know it’s such a bad habit), but in all honesty, after seeing what the BIO P2X can do, I’m quitting this habit slowly but surely.

Long story short, it works like a vacuum & sucks out all the skin impurities. I can assure you it’s painless. Believe me, I was disgusted & impressed at the same time. Imagine witnessing your blackheads & whiteheads come off one by one, major eew! But I’m not complaining because my face is squeaky clean it’s unbelievable.

I’ve previously tried out a similar machine at the doctor’s office & found it really effective in regulating my skin’s condition (lesser breakouts) + tightening my pores. This also meant you have to do a lot of maintenance (mask everyday) at home because this treatment might be a lil’ drying, But of course over at BIOSKIN, they complete this treatment with a rejuvenating facial so that your skin is fully hydrated. I felt truly relaxed during the treatment & even fell asleep halfway through the face massage!

When it comes to facial treatments, results matter a lot. You’d be happy to know there’s no downtime for the BIO P2X. With all the impurities drawn out, it makes makeup application so at ease & much longer-lasting. I’m glad the BIO P2X really does make a significant difference & looking forward to more sessions to attain Korean-looking skin. Thank you so much BIOSKIN!

Good news everyone! BIOSKIN is extending a SPECIAL PROMOTION specially for my readers! SMS < Agri_P2X> to 8288 1133 & enjoy BIO P2X + SCALP & SHOULDER MASSAGE + CELL RENEWAL CREAM (30ML) @ $38. (T & C APPLIES)

Also, I’ve started on a detox regime as of late. Don’t be mistaken, my main purpose is not to lose weight but rather to promote good health because of all the toxins I’ve been eating. Sometimes I do face the problems of over-eating & ending up with a bloated stomach. Super unglam I know! That’s when detox really helps! Also, I know for a fact that consuming red meat in large quantities is not good.

I’ve been trying out this KOGEN DETOX TEA by BIOSKIN for 5 days.When you go on full detox, your system clears out your body’s toxins effectively. And that’s exactly what I need because honestly, I’m full of poison inside.

KOGEN DETOX TEA is a FERMENTED HERBAL TEA ENZYME POWDER that HELPS IN DETOXIFICATION, STOMACH GAS REDUCTION & CONSTIPATION. It is made from 54 types of organic vegetables, fruits, weeds & yeast. Basically all the healthy stuff I definitely won’t put inside my mouth, but in powder form, I can accept.

I usually take this right before bedtime. Actually, due to my petite frame & also because my main purpose is not to lose weight drastically, I’m not required to complete a pack a day. Hence I always just do half sachet each time. See, it’s really easy to make!

I’d be heading to the toilet to let it all out (of course not like diarrhea don’t worry). So far, I haven’t experienced any tummy ache & really loving how my tummy is getting flatter day by day. I no longer have to feel so conscious in tiny cropped tops for my advertorial shoots!

Thank goodness for KOGEN DETOX TEA, I don’t have to worry about having a dragon’s appetite. Alright now, have a good week ahead & stay tuned to my next update on MEAT SAUCERY!


BROWTISAN X EYEBROW EMBROIDERY

Recently people have been telling me ‘Oh Agri, your brows are so on point, tell us your secret!’ & it’s been making me grin from ear to ear! No it’s not that I’ve changed the way I drew my brows. As you all already know, I’ve gotten eyebrow tattoo done previously months back & the color has more or less faded because I haven’t gone back for a touch-up. I didn’t hate it, don’t get me wrong. It’s just that I’m always open for different types of treatments (spoken like a lab rat), because you never know which one suits you best until you’ve tried it all.

I’m all about looking younger than my real age, & fuller-looking brows’ the way to go for a more youthful outlook. Unfortunately, with eyebrow tattoo, the result is not as ideal if you decide to have a thicker design especially close to your eye sockets since it penetrates deep into the dermis. Hence, EYEBROW EMBROIDERY is the way to go for STROKE BY STROKE PRECISION! So there you go, my secret is revealed! Don’t say I never share!

Here I am at BROWTISAN – also my favorite go-to place for sexy cat-eyed lashes. Don’t you love how luxurious the interior is, you can’t help but feel like an ultimate princess right here! Let’s take a look at my brows with no makeup on them!

Here’s a clearer visual taken with my Iphone 6! Aren’t they a lil’ thin & sparse-looking towards the end? Not forgetting what a messy state they’re in!

Alright let’s get started & get those brows numbed for a good ol’ 20 minutes! If you’re afraid of pain, you can have it on slightly longer! Fret not my dears, COCO is extremely gentle. If at any point you feel discomfort during the embroidery session, she will apply more numbing cream for you!

Check out my brows with one side drawn on & one side sans makeup! What a difference it makes!

And this is the customized brow design COCO created specially for me!

The very first time the founder COCO drew on my brows, I was so tempted to never wash them for a week. Just take a look at this, you’d feel me. I really don’t know how she does it, but I want those magic hands! In fact I’m not the only one who has this thought! She really is the MAESTRO OF BROWS! With above two decades of experience in the brow industry, I know I’m in complete safe hands!

When it comes to matters of the brows, she’s 101% attentive & will analyze your features before creating a design suited for you. Can’t wait for her to enhance my brows & make them look alluring! I opted for a dark brown colour so that I can just go over with brow mascara should I dye my hair in a lighter shade.

You’d think the process is pain, but it’s zero pain honestly. In fact, I was sleeping pretty soundly throughout the whole thing, & if you heard snores, that’s probably me!

Check out the final result! Done meticulously stroke by stroke to mimick real hair! Oh boy I love it already! Thank you so much COCO & BROWTISAN! My newly embroidered brows frame my face perfectly, I look awake even when I feel like a zombie inside. Now you know the wonders of perfectly sculpted brows! It’s totally normal for your brows to look darker than usual, but it’d slowly turn natural in a week’s time!

Here’s a closeup of my newly-done brows! Crafted with perfection- just the way I like it! Aftercare is extremely important if you want to have good results! You can purchase TEGADERM FILMS at WATSONS/GUARDIAN to protect your brows from touching water. BROWTISAN will also provide you with an AFTER-CARE KIT to apply over your brows thrice a day!

Here’s how my brows look 3 days later. No more eyebrow pencil needed, I’m ready to toss it away!

One week has gone by & my brows are looking even more natural than ever! Looking forward to getting them touched-up in two weeks time for a more lasting effect!

I don’t know about you, but I definitely like my mornings to be hassle-free! With BROWTISAN’S EYEBROW EMBROIDERY & EYELASH EXTENSION, I literally wake up looking 3/4 made-up! All I need is powder & lipstick before I head out. Easy peasy!

Yes EYEBROW EMBROIDERY may be considered a lil’ pricey to some, but it’s a really good investment especially if you’re the type who’d like to spend lesser time on makeup before work each day. Don’t you want to sleep a lil’ more? Plus it lasts about 3 years, so if you do the math, it’s pretty worth it! I have recommended a couple of friends here & they’re extremely satisfied with the results too. Thank you once again COCO & BROWTISAN for my beautiful set of brows!
