BIOSKIN X ABSOLUTE MIRACLE ESSENCE

Jetsetting 24/7 does stress out my skin, that I gotta admit. However, these days, being a frequent traveler has made me smart enough to pack the correct skincare for the correct climate & destination.

CIMG5228b

I brought along the BIOSKIN ABSOLUTE MIRACLE ESSENCE for my month-long trip. Like many other women, I care about pampering my skin especially even more while abroad, hence I always end up having the problem of over-packing my skincare. If you looked at my vanity bag in the past, you’d bawl your eyeballs out. Some days I need to treat my dehydrated skin, some days I need to firm up my skin. Well you know, women and their 101 woes. That’s why this came at the right time! Could I seriously say no to an ALL-IN-ONE SERUM that brings about such GREAT CONVENIENCE for women like me who’s flying constantly?

CIMG5198b

Thank you MATHILDA for sending over this amazing product just in time for my Europe trip. Do follow MATHILDA on IG @mathildakoh so that you won’t miss out on the latest promotions for BIOSKIN!

CIMG5226b

This HIGH-PERFORMING SERUM is the ultimate solution for RENEWED & SMOOTHER-LOOKING SKIN. Having used it religiously throughout my trip, I can assure you, you start to notice results one week into using it. However, if you have sensitive skin, I’d recommend you to use it once every two days. I really love how it clears away my dead cells day by day to REVEAL GLOWING SKIN in the morning when I wake up.

CIMG5219b

Prior to the trip, I even popped by BIOSKIN for their CELL FUSION FACE TREATMENT. The therapist mentioned that the combination of the facial treatment & the essence would give even better results. Thank you so much BIOSKIN for constantly showering my skin with tender loving care!

CIMG5151b

Alright, so going back to the ABSOLUTE MIRACLE ESSENCE, the reason why it’s so highly-raved is because it contains VITAMIN A to TARGET DEEP WRINKLES/ENLARGED PORES & all sorts of skin concerns. Perfect for someone like me who’s constantly under the sun & piling on makeup everyday. I don’t even want to think about having to deal with clogged pores & sun-damaged skin. Oh yes miracles do exist if you’re diligent enough to care for your skin!

CIMG5230b

In addition to that, with the VEGICAPS® UNIT DOSE TECHNOLOGY, each anti aging serum capsule keeps BIOSKIN’S ABSOLUTE MIRACLE ESSENCE stabilized until it is opened and controls the amount used per application, ensuring the properties of all the ingredients are kept intact and high-performing for the most optimum results.

BodyPerfect X ULTRASONIC CAVITATION

Finally found the time to drop by BodyPerfect to banish my tummy fats & love handles after what seemed like forever. You have no idea how toxic my recent trip was, I was such a glutton I couldn’t resist all the Shanghai delicacies! To make matters worse, I was practically partying every night, it’s no wonder I’m bloated at all the wrong places! But not to worry, because BodyPerfect always keeps my body in shape. With ULTRASONIC CAVITATION , I can eat however I like without having to step on the treadmill literally. YES IT’S THAT GOOD!

IMG_3929b

To refresh your memory a lil’, ULTRASONIC CAVITATION is the FASTEST NON-SURGICAL WAY to SCULPT & CONTOUR YOUR BODY in a PAINLESS MANNER with NO DOWNTIME. It’s extremely effective in banishing those stubborn fats which no amount of exercise can help. I’m on my third session currently & that hourglass figure is really starting to emerge! Ooh La La! Let’s take a look at how my tummy looked way before I reached out to BodyPerfect for help! For that skinny frame of mine, that bulging tummy is clearly an issue. So now you know why I preferred loose fitting apparels all these while? Nothing could hide my insecurities better than that! Please don’t cringe! Check out the bulge below the belly button!

IMG_3918b

Alright, maybe it’s more obvious when taken from the side! Yikes!

IMG_3920b

Believe me, I wouldn’t be singing praises if this treatment didn’t work wonders for me. As the therapist worked her way through my love handles, I was grinning from ear to ear knowing that as soon as she’s done, I’d be having a more contoured waistline & of course a flatter tummy. Science is amazing baby & nothing can beat that!

IMG_4536b

Decided to add on the TRIPLE ACTION WRAP for even better results. I’m not usually this greedy, but with the upcoming beach vacation, I need to have a rockin’ hot bod pronto! This TRIPLE DETOXIFICATION & CONTOURING BODY WRAP comprises of a cocktail of detoxifying plants for STRONG LIPOLYTIC ACTIVITY. In addition, the body recovers its energy & vitality, leaving it with a healthy glow!

IMG_4544b

Unlike the CAVITATION TREATMENT, this TRIPLE ACTION WRAP is 15 minutes of pure cold sensation! I had my doubts too & wasn’t sure how drastically different my body would look after and oh boy do I hate the cold! But seeing the results afterwards, I was completely sold. What on earth is this sorcery? I am definitely doing this at my next session, for vanity’s sake!

IMG_4553b

With the combination of these two power-packed treatments, am I not one step closer to getting the body shape I’ve always desired? Thank you so much BodyPerfect!

IMG_4551b

Specially for my readers, BodyPerfect is offering a 20 MINUTES ULTRASONIC CAVITATION (worth $388) ABSOLUTELY FREE! Call 6235 7377 for your free trial! Don’t miss out!

BodyPerfect is located at 541 ORCHARD ROAD, #21-03/04, LIAT TOWERS.


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.

IMG_0377b

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.

IMG_2836b

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!

IMG_5384b

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.

IMG_7554b

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.

IMG_8242b

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.

IMG_7548b

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!

IMG_7547b

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!

IMG_7265b

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!

IMG_7262b

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!

IMG_5409b

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!

IMG_7166b

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

IMG_7181b

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

IMG_7189b

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!

IMG_7176b

IMG_7178b

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.

IMG_7199b

IMG_7204b

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!

IMG_7182b

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!

IMG_7742b

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

IMG_5617b

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!

IMG_7338b

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!

BEAUTI INSTINCT

Comparing my skin to how it was in the past, it has really gone a long way. The constant battle with acne, uneven skin tone & acne scarring. I’m glad all that has gone under control with the many treatments I put my skin through to regain the skin I have today.

A lot of love goes out to Beauti Instinct for treating my skin for over a year now. Mainly because I see results & everyone around me is able to witness it for themselves.

Today I’m back here to do the Silk Peel Dermalinfusion Therapy. A lil’ too much makeup for the past week + not so proper cleansing have led to the formation of dead skin cells + enlarged pores particularly over my cheek area again. Please give me back revitalized & smooth skin once again!

CIMG4244closeup  CIMG4245closeup

Basically, the treatment uses diamond tips to gently exfoliate & lift off dead & dulling skin cells. Even better than microdermabrasion!

silkpeel1  silkpeel2

Of course, greedy me decided to do a Skin Rejuvenation Treatment too! You know how I am, constantly seeking for perfection when it comes to my skin. This is very effective in improving skin elasticity & in giving me that even skin tone. Rest assured, it’s painless! All you feel is a warm sensation throughout the process.

laser1  laser2

What I really like about these two treatments combined is that fact that there’s no downtime & you see INSTANT RESULTS! Seeing is always believing, take a look at this! Skin looks clarified already & squeaky clean! Need I explain how baby-smooth it feels?

Estetica Vitalift A+ Brillage Mask Review

My late nights are back, oh yikes & I thought I could bid them goodbye altogether since I’ve stopped partying for quite a bit.

Welcome to the real world, some things are just impossible to shake off & I have the sudden urge to hunt. Beware people, there’s a predator on the loose! Time to be more diligent in keeping my skin in tip top condition!

DSC09639b

I’ve always been obsessed with face masks, you should totally check out my fridge. I have a corner dedicated specially for them. Masks are essentials before an event or a girl’s night out!

When it comes to masks, I’ve possibly tried out most of the stuff that’s available in the market. Today, I’m about to share with you the VITALIFT A+ Brillage Mask from Estetica that I’ve been using for a month now religiously & the results are pretty spectacular. You’d see why!

DSC09641b

Let’s put on some Bossanova & apply that mask on! Think you can see the texture of this mask is kinda different from the types that are available everywhere. It’s not paper & definitely feels like heaven. Doesn’t it look like such a good fit for me?

esteticamask2  esteticamask1

This is how my skin looks thirty minutes later. I’ve always had problems with enlarged pores on my left cheek area & I feel that this mask was extremely effective in shrinking them. With each subsequent use, my skin is getting better week by week. This Bio-Cellulose Mask is like a god-sent gift to me, I can’t get away from the mirror now that the reflection I see is ultimate radiance & luminosity! Yes this girl is vain.

esteticamaskoff

Applying makeup will be a breeze now that my skin’s just received a home luxurious treatment without the exorbitant price tag. Dewy skin, please stay with me forever! When it comes to caring for my skin, a little goes a long way. This I can assure you!

Brilliant Skin with Estetica

My busy schedule might lead me to my grave at this rate I’m going, picture intensive 6am call times & I’m expected to look my best all through the day.

I couldn’t even afford a lil’ me time for myself & here comes the horror bit. My face’s moisture levels has hit rock bottom & my body’s feeling so tense due to my serious lack of sleep. SOS! I still want to look impeccably good under any condition!

DSC00123b

DSC00105b

Now that the busy period is clear for a day, this is a sign that I should spoil myself silly. Estetica here I come! Frankly, I’m quite excited since it’d been awhile since I did a proper facial.

I’ve grown so accustomed to quick fixes like peels & lasers. Those work like magic if you want results in 15 minutes max & don’t mind the heftier price tag, but today I just want to lie back & relax while my face is being pampered with all the goodness by the therapist’s nimble fingers.

DSC00001b

DSC00007b

DSC00008b

Upon consultation, we’ve come to realize my skin was at a dehydrated state & what I wanted to achieve was restoring that radiance & moisture that’s clearly disappeared. With the huge selection of treatments available here, let’s leave it to the professionals to analyze your current skin condition & specially assign the most suited treatment to target the problem area.

I was about to undergo Estetica’s signature 3D Skin Tech Brillage Radiance Facial – clinically proven to fix skin problems like mine (enlarged pores, dehydrated skin) & also to awaken dull skin. Let’s get started & see if this facial gives the exceptional results like it promised!

DSC00015b  DSC00017b

DSC00024b  DSC00020b

Just lying on Estetica’s ergonomic friendly treatment beds made me feel like royalty. Designed to enable each customer to adjust the preferred height & angles for the area around the back & knee regions, this is perfect for the fatigued souls like myself.

No more stiff beds that I feel uncomfortable lying on & no more standard pillows that give me a stiff neck after. I am now in a perfectly relaxed posture I’m more than ready to be pampered like a queen. Estetica cares so much for the comfort of its customer! Oh my goodness, I’m falling in love with this place already!

DSC00032b

I used to have so much hate for any extraction process, I’d skip this process altogether due to the pain & fear of scarring. But today I decided maybe it’s time to do the full monty & clear the accumulated dirt so that I can have an extremely smooth canvas.

To my surprise, it didn’t hurt one bit & upon extracting on one area, a cold cotton pad is immediately placed over which I felt was very hygienic! This apparently was very effective in soothing the area & would diminish any redness. I wouldn’t have to worry about dealing with a tomato-red face post-facial & everyone can just keep on guessing why I’m looking so incredibly radiant.

DSC00037c  DSC00044b

A serum is then applied together with a machine so that you can be ensured your skin is receiving all things good. Don’t be alarmed by the device, it’s zero pain & has a cooling sensation over your skin.

DSC00056b  DSC00053b

Next comes everyone’s favourite part! Face acupressure, neck & shoulder massage time! As the therapist knead my knots away skilfully, I fell into a deep therapeutic sleep. You have no idea how much I enjoy getting my temples massaged!

DSC00068b

Lastly, the treatment is completed with a VitaLift A+ Brillage Mask which is on par with my favourite CO2 Mask. Hence, I decided to take home a pack to review. Stay tuned to my post on that!

DSC00077b

Results don’t lie. I actually look like I have make-up on right after my facial, when I’ve had none. You can see for yourself!

DSC00121c

Just take a look at my skin! Wow it takes only one half hour to achieve crystal-clear & almost porcelain-like. Don’t be astounded by how good the effect is, because you’re about to get some lovely skin too since I love this treatment so much!

DSC00082b

Specially for my readers, Estetica is offering their 3D Skin Tech Brillage Radiance Facial at only $33 (U.P $168). Valid for customers above 21 years old only. You can access this special deal HERE.

Achieving Eye Perfection With Skin Inc

Let’s face it. Our age increases with each year & signs of aging start making their way to our faces. Perhaps I should have gotten myself started on eye cream targeted at under-eye wrinkle prevention way back in my teenage years.

The skin around the eyes is the most delicate, yet I didn’t give them the love they needed in the past. Oh no, does this mean I’m doomed & forced to live with these darned lines?

DSC00233b

Just last week, I got invited to Skin Inc’s power-packed ‘All About Eyes’ workshop. We got a preview of Skin Inc’s very first eye product (after 5 years of R&D!) and got to know more about taking care of the delicate skin around the eyes.

I’ve always been interested to check out Skin Inc for awhile now, but haven’t got around to doing it. Some of my friends swear by it & their skins are indeed looking oh so fine. Thank you Carmen for keeping me in mind, this came right on time!

DSC00185c

Let’s take a look at the demonstration done on the model. Reiee’s boyfriend was such a good sport! Damn his skin is already good enough, but apparently applying this Pure Revival Peel would give him even more perfect skin than how it was!

DSC00195c

DSC00201c

The after effect looks amazing, you could immediately tell one side of the face looked lifted & so radiant it felt unreal! Sorry I wasn’t able to get a proper picture of that from where I was sitting.

DSC00209c

DSC00210c

Next up, I learnt the proper application of eye cream. I can’t believe all these years, I paid so much attention to my entire face, but I’ve always neglected the eyes. I thought using the mother of all eye creams was the solution to the fine lines, but clearly, the way I’m applying it on is equivalent to not applying anything all! Sometimes the fingers can’t do it all, you need a device to stimulate the area in order for the eye cream to penetrate the skin better!

Skin Inc’s ‘Eyes Love It’ Optimizer does just that. Containing Iontophoresis that boost skin’s absorption by 40%, it has an ergonomic design that adheres to facial contours to address wrinkle-prone areas. The optimizer also offers an intelligent technology that adjusts power automatically to suit skin’s condition. With that, you can be ensured, your skin is really indeed receiving 100% goodness.

DSC00252b

DSC00245c

DSC00227c

Happy to interact with the bloggers at the event itself & everyone’s having a good time testing out the amazing serums available in-store while munching on delicious cupcakes & light bites. Thank you Skin Inc for the yummy treats, you know I’d never say no to that!

DSC00225b

DSC00235b

Skin Inc is unlike any other brands I’ve used. It’s the world’s first Skin Supplement Bar offering highly concentrated, 100% pure & active serums & skincare from Japan. Now that I look at my range of skincare, I realized I don’t have any products that’s made in Japan. Japanese people are known to have one of the best complexions, it’s probably a sign to start investing in one for a start.

DSC00255b

DSC00222c

Excited to try out Skin Inc’s very first Age-Revival Stem Cell Eye Cream! The texture itself feels extremely luxurious, yet when applied, the skin absorbs it very quickly. Plus, the ingredients used in this product look very promising. With 20 active ingredients including 4 Types Of Peptides, Ilex Paraguariensis Leaf Extract, Hesperidin, Argan Tree Extract & Grape Extracts, this is a lot of goodness for the fatigued eye. Hopefully in time to come, my under-eye lines can be visibly reduced! I’d update you very soon.

Stem Cell Eye-Direct MRb

There’s also the Skin Inc Age Revival Stem Cell Serum which I’ve decided to give a shot at. Both the Eye+ and Serum contain stem cells from the Uttwiler Sparlauber Apple that has self-regenerative capabilities – the fruit stays fresh for unusually long periods of time. Skin Inc has harnessed those powerful properties & infused them into the serum & Eye+ products.

Yes life does not feel at all like a bed of roses. Hitting the mid twenties just means using richer products to minimize the aging process! I shall not be lazy from now on & embark on this 4 week intensive anti-ageing program. I still want to look forever 21.

DSC00239b

With their wide array of cocktails, there’d be something suitable for everyone’s different skin type. You can customize a bottle of My Daily Dose Serum according to your skin identity & solve multiple skin conditions in one simple step. So whether your skin needs a combination of protection, anti-ageing, healing & brightening or just an extra boost of antioxidants, you can achieve it in a single application that reinforces your current skincare. How fuss-free! Say yes to looking youthful forever!

Face Fabulosity with ASTIQUE CLINIC

I was back at ASTIQUE CLINIC two weeks back for some nip & tuck. Okay just kidding! They’re more like minor touch-ups. A girl’s gotta do all that she can to make her feel happy about herself & in my case, having all my problem areas fixed would make me a more confident individual. Vanity is not a crime.

sideview   sideview2

My face may appear small to many, but it’s certainly not symmetrical. These pictures are not tweaked & you can see how different my right & left profiles look because of the way my jaw is structured. The left side is much wider & also seems a lil’ puffy. Time to get some serious help on this area!

During my last visit, I had some fillers done to my left under-eye to fix the depression line. Hitting the big 25 has its pros & cons. My clock is ticking but thank goodness I have ASTIQUE CLINIC to delay the signs of aging. You’d probably be puzzled. What depression line could I possibly have? I thank the best invention to date – Laura Mercier’s Secret Concealer. So good I wish I could wear it to sleep. Definitely not a long-term solution, hence I decided to give Restylane a chance.

First signs of aging, as many doctors have told me, would start showing around my eye area. I don’t blame it on the genetics, but if I can do something to revive tired-looking eyes, why would I not?

The previous time I did just a minimal amount cause I wasn’t really sure how it’d turn out & wasn’t sure how effective it was. Since I saw a visible improvement with that little amount & realized how much I loved the results, I decided to go back for a full touch-up.

Upon consultation, Dr Matthew Yap decided to raise my nose bridge a lil’ higher too. In all honesty, my bulbous tip has been bothering me for quite a while now. A higher nose bridge + some good makeup skills would definitely give the illusion of a smaller nose tip.

Alright, less talk & let’s get down to the process! Dr Matthew Yap is one of the friendliest doctors I’ve ever encountered. I feel so at home at ASTIQUE CLINIC everytime because the doctor & the nurses are always so attentive to my needs. Plus, they always ensure you feel comfortable during your treatment. Don’t mind me going cray cray while on the numbing cream!

Just two more procedures before I start to embrace my newly enhanced face! Fill them depression lines Restylane, beautiful & rejuvenated eyes you shall be mine! Lastly, Botox to the rescue, to soften my masculine left profile.

Two weeks later, look at how the Botox takes effect & settles nicely. My face shape is looking feminine from every angle. Even my nose is free from humps & looks visibly better in person now. Thank you ASTIQUE CLINIC for not letting me down with each visit!

Here’s how it looks with flash.

Going Pore-Less with FREIA

 Excessive partying together with my all-meat diet has proven to be very toxic for any human body. I’m sure you’ve heard of the phrase ‘You are what you eat’! If you really must know, I haven’t touched the greens for twenty three years. Although health-wise it hasn’t seemed to take a toll on me, complexion-wise it can be quite an issue every now & then. When it’s clear, it’s crystal clear. But when it decides to hit me, it comes in flocks & refuses to budge.

Then again, my job requires me to put my best face forward at all times, meaning even the minor imperfections had to be kept at bay. I have to restore it back to its tip top state before the problem starts to aggravate. Save me please!

I decided to book an appointment with Dr Harold Ma from FREIA MEDICAL AESTHETICS to see what could be done to attain beautiful skin again. At different stages in life, you’re faced with different skin woes. It used to be acne in the teenage years, then the scarring issues, followed by the occasional uneven skin tone. Thank goodness I’ve gotten all that under control for now.

Now it seems that enlarged pores have found their way to my face, particularly on the left cheek. Why oh why!

Upon consultation, Dr Harold Ma recommended the Medlite Laser Toning for my first visit. It’s proven to be very effective for pore refinement & pigment reduction. He said it’d help to clear my leftover acne scarring too. With my condition, it’d take about 5 treatments for the best results. I cross my fingers that the unsightly pores would look significantly better with each visit. Let’s get me all cleansed up & get that tinted sunblock off me!

Alright, let’s get started! Numbing cream was applied & left on for ten minutes. After which, my face went through a second cleanse before the treatment begins.

The whole process was painless aside from a slightly warm sensation that’s perfectly normal at some points. The thought of how much better my skin would look right after puts me at ease. I am SUPER BRAVE.

   

And we’re done in less than ten minutes! A calming mask is used right after to soothe my skin.

Look at how significantly smaller my pores look in just one session! Can you imagine what a couple more sessions would do? Boy do I love this Medlite Laser Toning treatment! Amazing how this makes my skin radiant too. Thank you Dr Harold Ma for giving me the skin I desire!

Check out these raw images with no makeup aside from a dash of mascara & liner. Here’s the left side!

And now the right side!

The first signs of aging differ with every individual,other than fine lines, enlarged pores could also be a tell-tale sign. The wonders of makeup’s undeniable, but using it to conceal all the time would just lead to super clogged pores. I don’t want to be over reliant on makeup.

Picture Perfect with ASTIQUE CLINIC

Remember the last time I visited ASTIQUE CLINIC for a couple procedures? I loved the after results from the jaw slimming Botox & chin fillers so much! I’ve finally attained the ideal V-shaped face that’s sought after by most women!

Months have gone by & I can’t thank Dr Matthew Yap enough for keeping my ideal face shape long lasting! In case you’re wondering, the type of fillers chosen for me was Juvederm.

I almost forgot I used to have such a short & wide face shape. Not that I hated how I look back then, but comparing then & now, I love how I look even better now. Such a vast difference in the chin shape & I feel way more feminine.

Sometimes a lil’ fillers could make your face look much more proportionate, I’ve always had a high forehead & with a short chin it doesn’t seem to go quite well together. Notice how the longer chin actually helps in balancing out my features? Oh boy what I am to do without you Dr Matthew Yap!

Today I’m back to straighten the mini hump on my nose bridge, although not too visible in person, but is really visible in pictures! I’ve gotten sick & tired of contouring it every single time before I head out or even having to edit every single photo so I decided this was possibly the best solution for me. At the end of the day, it’s always important to feel good about yourself.

   

Here’s a couple of snapshots on the filler process! Step 1– The doctor injects the targeted area. Step 2– Filler is injected to create the desired volume. Step 3 – The doctor will then mould the filler into place for a natural-looking finish. Step 4 – Final check to see if you’re happy with the results, if not more fillers can be injected to the area.

Within less than ten minutes, we were done with the procedure. Refined nose I like, no more unsightly hump!

He also suggested injecting some goodness just below my left eye to fill out the hollowness. I never knew that I’m already starting to have a depression line on one side, boy the doctors can see it so clear with their naked eye. Scary!

I really didn’t think much of it until the procedure was done & that area was lifted immediately & suddenly I didn’t look so tired anymore. Sometimes there’s only so much an eye cream can do.

Weeks after, here’s how it looks! I thank you Juvederm & Dr Matthew Yap for keeping the results so natural-looking & long-lasting. Ps, also special thanks to Kenneth Beltran & Joemel Sanchez for the amazing photography! Hit up their facebook to schedule a shoot!

the little obsessions

Here’s a lil’ update on what I’ve been up to for the past few weeks. My blog is a dead corpse but I’m alive & kicking. With my addiction to Instagram & my recent activation on Facebook, I’ve become way too lazy to keep the posts coming here!

Sorry I know that shouldn’t be an excuse, but really I’ve been having the craziest schedules as of late with outdoor shoots & meetings. Alright, less talk & it’s time to feed you with some photos!

Lunch at Annam with Jay Daniel & Ash. Best Crab Meat Fried Rice I’ve ever had in my life even though it costs a whopping $32.00! So good we had 3 individual portions, insane or what?

I also recently took up this beauty project together with my KL babe Chels which took all afternoon to shoot but was worth braving the sun for! Here’s some snippets from their website & some pictures on set! If you’re a beauty junkie like I am, don’t forget to check out Hermate for its incredible beauty device!

Loving my luminous skin which I must thank ASTIQUE CLINIC for. It’s not a secret anymore, a Glycolic Acid Peel is really a quick solution to erase sun-damaged skin & to sort out unever skin. Literally an instant goodbye to clogged pores with makeup buildup in a single session!

Of course, before you decide to do any form of peel, no matter how mild, it’s best you consult the professionals, because different skin types might not necessarily suit this type of peel. Credits to Kenneth Beltran & Joemel Sanchez for the photography. More pictures for you as soon I receive the full set!

Recently discovered this chill place to just hang with friends over beer & uber yummy wings. It’s been around for a while, I can’t believe it took me this long to find out! Thank you for being such a good host Paul! Wine BOS is located at 787 North Bridge Road.

My new-found Confidence, I found it at Beauti Instinct

My partying habits ain’t foreign to anyone around, in fact my energy level’s on high all the time it can be quite puzzling to some. Everytime the weekend’s here, I’d be out without fail doing shots after shots and  it’s really quite taxing to keep up with me.

You know how they say excessive partying takes a toll on your skin, well it used to affect me real bad a long long time ago but not anymore. In fact it’s kinda unbelievable that I’m looking all radiant despite all those late nights. Well, that’s just because the results of the Roller Treatment’s too good to be true!

 

   

Today I thought I’d share with you my personal story on how I overcome my bad complexion. It used to be so ridiculously bad I’d plaster multiple layers of foundation & concealer over thinking it would hide everything. That was such a stupid idea because it’s so pore clogging & it didn’t help that I was such a lazy creature I removed my makeup without proper cleansing routine. Late nights + Studio Makeup + Alcohol + Bad Cleansing Routine = A Big Disaster.

I thought I was destined to rely on makeup to cover up my imperfections for a lifetime, then one day I was introduced to Beauti Instinct. Trust me, at the start, I was a lil’ apprehensive because I’ve attempted way too many treatments I’ve almost given up hope. What difference would one more treatment make seriously?

  

Hence, I decided to give this one last chance. I went on with the Silk Peel Treatment for pore refining & to clear out all the impurities. This really gives a polished finish & your skin feels squeaky clean right after with all the dead skin begone. I followed up with the Honey Oxygenating Treatment & Oxygen Infusion to treat my majorly dehydrated skin due too excess alcohol intake.

If you have uneven skin tone like me, you’d love how this treatment is really helpful in giving an even finish and unlike chemical peel, this has no downtime. As you can tell, my complexion was really a trainwreck & I’m the sort who comes back for treatment if I see visible results. When it comes to matters of the face, the slightest improvement would make me more enthusiastic in treating it. Each time I went, the better my skin got despite how much I loathe the extractions still. Take a look at how my complexion improved after my 4th Silk Peel Treatment.

This was also after the Snow White Whitening Treatment. Apparently, it’s highly effective in treating dull skin, as well as lightening superficial scars caused by the leftover acne. I can see my skin getting better with each visit, even my friends were very impressed with the results. I used to be so lazy in making my facial appointments in the past, but now it’s become my number one priority.

 

With my breakouts under control now, I got started on my first Roller Treatment to treat the deep scarring. Now this I must say is my ultimate favourite treatment to date, it works WONDERS for me. There’s a huge range of cocktails to treat different skin concerns, from acne scarring to whitening to anti-aging. Upon consultation, Rita would suggest what works best for your skin condition.

Even my friends and the people around me commented on how my skin improved vastly over a span of 6 months. Now that I’ve got my skin under strict supervision, I do my monthly Oxygen Infusion + Roller Treatment over at Beauti Instinct to maintain its tip top condition. Check out this photo where I headed to Astique totally foundation/concealer free. The texture of my skin has taken a 360-degrees turn from how it was previously before I started on my first Roller Treatment.

I never thought the day for me to leave the house with just moisturizer, lil’ eyeliner & some lipstick would eventually come my way. The better your skin gets, the more you want to lay off foundation/powder. Plus, I’m really embracing how radiant my skin looks right now. It feels really good to let your skin breathe.

In case you’re wondering, here’s how my skin looks with makeup on. When your skin texture is refined, makeup glides on so smoothly over it. It’s a perfect picture moment each time.

Good skin can become everyone’s reality with proper professional help. I’m really thankful to Beauti Instinct for saving me from my agony & giving me the confidence to step out during daytime with just sunscreen & eyeliner. Even my friends have started going there for treatment after they’ve seen what a job well done Beauti Instinct has done to my face.

I’m not paid to do this, but I’m sharing this with you guys in case you’re a party animal just like me & all that late nights have taken a toll on your skin. If you’re looking for a new revolution for your skin, call 6733 9149 to find out more.


Make Me Beautiful With ASTIQUE CLINIC

Have you heard how a lil’ something could make a big difference? I was introduced to Juvederm over at ASTIQUE CLINIC for the first time & a lil’ enhancement really doesn’t kill. All decked in full ZALORA, I was more than ready for some transformation.

I’ve always wanted a slightly longer face, otherwise known better as a V-line shaped face to look a tad more feminine. It’s just a personal preference kinda thing.

I’ve always wondered how different I’d look if everything was just toned down & I know lengthening the face could do just that. Isn’t it crazy how even 1cm could change your look subtly for the better? Super fidgety upon consulation because I’m extremely excited too!

 

My honey bunny’s so nice she accompanied me for moral support. I’ve nothing to fear now that we have each other! She’s one of the most gorgeous girls I’ve known in my life inside out.

   

You know how girls being girls, we’re all vain creatures, so she thought of doing a lil’ enhancement too! Fuller lips she asked for, fuller lips she shall get!

Let’s get started already! Of course, we’re obviously not as gungho as I thought. We requested to be on the numbing cream a lil’ longer than the assigned time because we really didn’t know what to expect. I’m gonna go first, so let’s take a look at the process!

 

I decided to give Botox a shot too to make the face more asymmetrical with my newly prominent chin done! My left jaw has always been more chiseled & since I was all for the dainty look, I thought why not?

Next came Sarah’s turn & she’s totally trembling with excitement!

Look at the newly revamped me with perfect V-shaped face & zero bruising! This feels like an immediate confidence booster with absolutely no pain. The outcome was even better than what I expected. I’m definitely sold! Seriously, what am I to do without ASTIQUE CLINIC?

Three weeks later, here’s how the Botox & Chin Fillers settle on my face. So many compliments I’ve heard about how I look I’m starting to blush! It’s pretty damn amazing because you look noticeably better but nobody could quite figure out what you’ve done until you tell them! Thank you so much Dr Matthew Yap!

Let’s also not forget how ravishing my honey looks after the Lip Fillers too! A tad sultry but still very natural-looking!

Looking good can now be achieve in less than fifteen minutes flat without going under the knife & with no downtime. Any minimal bruising can easily be covered with powder, so that’s the least of my worries! Please like ASTIQUE’S facebook page HERE.

Brows that Wow with Allure

They say the perfect brows bring out the total enhancement of your facial features. Hence, my morning beauty routine involves the constant fussing with my brows to perfect that arch. It’s such a shame though never once have I succeeded in making them look anywhere near decent.

Just when I thought all hope’s gone, Allure Beauty Saloon comes to the rescue! Let me take you through the Signature Eyebrow Embroidery process!

Step 1: The short consultation with the beauty therapist to determine the best brow design for a perfect fit on your face. I absolutely love my therapist Coco, she’s such a sweetheart.

Step 2 : The desired shape for the brows is then sketched & a calming lotion is applied over the brows to numb them before the embroidery begins.

Step 3: A layer of antiseptic cream is applied on the embroidered area. A round of touch up after three weeks is advisable & thereafter the embroidered colour should last for about 2 years.

And there you have it, a beautifully shaped pair of eyebrows in an hour & a half! It’s that simple, fast & easy with no bleeding or swelling during & after the process.

It’s been two weeks now. Let’s see how those brows are doing now! Doesn’t the right set of brows frame your face nicely? Looks pretty good with a tan too!

There’s no fixed template for every eyebrow & Allure Beauty customizes every eyebrow for every client. I now have brows that wow, & you can too. Allure Beauty is located conveniently at :
