Dermal Therapy Blistop

16 Apr

My relationship with heels has always been a love-hate affair. 

oowie

 A pair of stilettos could instantly adds height and complete an outfit but walking on heels gives me blisters and ugly scars thereafter. It is a pain having to drag my feet all day and I certainly don’t enjoy sticking plasters here and there. But then again, I am also not prepared to step into the boardroom or the ballroom with a pair of grumpy flops either. And so my feet have continued to endure my torture as I balance each step with grace and pain until Dermal Therapy Blistop came to the rescue. 

Dermal Therapy Blistop

Dermal Therapy Blistop

Formulated with Dimethylether, Menthol and Acrylic co Polymer, Dermal Therapy Blistop is a blister prevention spray that envelops the skin with an invisible elastic veil that offers instant protection and prevents blisters from forming due to friction. It is transparent so it is invisible on the skin and it will not stain or leaves any residues. Being micro-aerated, skin remains breathable and this invisible, water resistant film does not rub off easily, thus offering long hours of protection.

 The spray is easy to use. All you need is to shake well, hold it 5 – 10cm away and spritz on your toes, ankles and any areas of your feet that would usually get blisters. Do so on dry skin and wait till the mist is completely dry before wearing your socks or shoes. The mist will form into a transparent wrap and envelops your skin within a few seconds. It is almost invisible and though you could feel that something is there, it will not hindrance your movement at all. Like hairspray and other spray products, there is a very slight scent but the smell is not offending. A word of caution though, the nozzle tends to dispense over generously in a single spritz so try to control the dispenser to get the right amount each time.

It is amazing how this invisible film could buffers my skin against friction and allows me to walk in comfort the entire day. It is very convenient and handy I like that it would wear off gradually so I don’t have to kick up a fuss removing it after use. All I need is to lightly peel off whatever is leftover in my shower at the end of the day and that’s it.

Affordably priced at S$11.90, a can of Dermal Therapy Blistop is good for up to 50 applications, I would highly recommend this innovative spray to anyone and everyone who wears shoes at one point or other. And whether you are still battling with your old shoes or planning to conquer the dance floor with your new gears tonight, keep the spray handy and you feet will thank you for the invisible protection.

2B Alternative Into Arm & Body

28 Mar

For a barely 155cm built, I am FAT without a doubt! I have got elephant thighs, water pail waist but what irked me the most are my flabby arms!

6 2B Alternative Into Arm & Body

2B Alternative has a series of slimming products that tailored to the different of the body and I am already a huge fan of 2B for Face and 2B Mask for Face but this is the first time I am trying out their other products. 

As its name implies, this 2B Alternative Into Arm & Body is designed to target, well, ARM AND BODY.

3

Formulated using a new Heat Deep Penetrating (HDP) formula that activates EGF, HCA, Caffeine and Liporeductyl to burn fat cells, this clear gel is really HOT! I have under estimated the heating power and over applied during the first time and got myself jumping around like crazy for the next hour.

12

The burning sensation is quite intense so initially I would be hiding inside the air-conditioned room to keep myself cool but after a while, my skin soon gets used to the tingling sensation and I could even apply it before exercising to tap on the heat to increase metabolism and burn more fats :) 

The good thing is that it does not contains any Chili or Ginger extracts thus it will not cause skin irritation. In fact my skin feels smoother and it is not greasy. I find its light, green tea/minty scent very pleasurable too. 

4

It is barely two weeks since I started applying 2B Alternative Into Arm & Body and I must say that I am extremely happy with the result. Not only that my arms are visibly more tone and firmer looking, they have also reduced by an inch in measurement!

11

Hmm..looks like I could be bidding goodbye to my ugly flabby arms fairly soon!

Yeah!

For Beloved One Melasleep Whitening Blemish Balm cream

22 Mar

I have always wanted to try this For Beloved One Melasleep Whitening Blemish Balm Cream for the long time but when I finally brought a tube as Christmas present for myself from Sephora, I misplaced it even before Christmas arrived and so I never get a chance to try it until now.

2014-03-22 13.15.17 Thanks to For Beloved One, I got a tube flew from Taiwan!

2014-03-22-13-00-07_deco 2014-03-22-13-01-05_deco As you can see, the box packaging is different from what I had brought previously. This one is in 30ml and the one available in Singapore is 50ml.

2014-03-22-13-01-39_deco

Formulated with world’s leading pharmaceutical patent Lumiskin ™, ascorbyl glucoside, job’s tears extract and rose hips oil, this For Beloved One Melasleep Whitening Blemish Balm Cream not only has the effects of whitening, repair and conceal flaws, it also contains an intelligent tracking color factor that can automatically track and create a soft and natural light perception to give skin a translucent, nude look appearance. 

Other ingredients of the BB cream include Allantoni, Bisabolol and Chamomile extracts. Allantoni, being a natural skin healing agent, could help to stimulate cell regeneration, ease skin allergies and increase skin moisture to soothe and give the skin a smoother appearance. Bisabolol is a plant compound that contains anti-inflammatory and healing effects and could relive skin discomfort as well as improving the skin’s immunity and the latter, Chamomile extracts promotes wound healing, anti-inflammation, anti-bacterial and improve allergic condition.

With such soothing properties, it is no wonder this BB cream is suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin and problematic skin. 

2014-03-22-13-03-05_deco 2014-03-22-13-03-50_deco 2014-03-22-13-04-21_deco

On top of its brightening and repairing benefits, this BB cream works like a chameleon that matches my skin tone while giving me a sheer, translucent coverage. While it cannot cover the huge patch of Melasma on my cheeks completely, it hides my enlarged pores, fine lines and other imperfections.

I like it how brightens up my complexion and gives me a matte finish that creates the illusion of flawless skin. It looks good on its own for a nude makeup effect but it also works well as a base for foundation. 

I noticed that there is a lack of sun protection factor but then again, with its multiple efficiency of Brightening, Repairing and Coverage all in one, this BB cream is absolutely more than what I could bargain for.

I am extremely glad that it does not oxidize after some time and gives me a grayish undertone that some BB cream would.

The thin consistency fluid glides on easily and spreads on evenly so a little goes a long way.  I find the light scent very pleasurable and I especially appreciate how it could pacify poached skin and allow my face to stay fresh throughout the day without touch up. 

2014-03-22-12-59-18_deco

Available from Sephora Singapore at SDG$50 for a 50ml tube, For Beloved One Melasleep Whitening Blemish Balm Cream is a wonderful multi-tasker that every woman sought to have on their dressing table.

Yadah Twin Angel BB Cream with Cheek Tint & Yadah Air Powder Pact

11 Mar

The other day my little 4 year old niece saw this set of Yadah on the table and claimed that it is hers. My 30 year old colleague has asked for them when she saw a picture that I have posted. My mum too, could not resists trying them out so I reckoned that makeup and cute illustration are girly stuffs that appeal to women, no matter what age they might be.

Yadah Twin Angel BB Cream with Cheek Tint SPF 35/PA+++

1
When come to BBs, I dare say that no one does it better than the Koreans. And Yadah, being a typically Korean brand, not only that they do BB cream, they have take it a step further by throwing in a cheek tint on the cap!
 
Isn’t that neat!
 
I simply love this multi-functional tint! Besides giving my cheeks a light blush, I am using it as a lip tint and even on my eyelids to hold my mineral loose eye shadow powder.
 
Just as multi-functional, Yadah Twin BB Cream is a combination of sun protection, makeup primer, concealer and foundation.
 
Specially formulated with natural ingredients such as mango seed butter and camellia sinensis leaf extract, Yadah Twin BB Cream is 100% free from paraben, artificial coloring, mineral oils, sulphates and animal extracts. It also contains skin soothing and regenerating properties and is able to control sebum and promote fairer and conceal imperfections.
 
Besides being gentle, non comedogenic and suitable for all skin types, Yadah Twin BB Cream’s winning formula is perhaps its efficiency to provide an all-in-one solution that that protect, conceal and cover.
 
http://lifelittletales.wordpress.com/
 
Personally, I find its fluid consistency blends onto my skin easily and smoothly. I like that it feels hydrating and could instantly brighten up my dull and tired looking complexion. Besides giving me the much needed sun protection with SPF35PA+++ , it hides my pigmentations fairly well and gives a very natural finish.
 
My face looks dewy and I am good even without foundation.

Yadah Air Powder Pact SPF 35/PA+++

http://lifelittletales.wordpress.com/

I always apply powder as the final step of makeup to avoid ending up looking like a greasy pan in our humid climate. Whether it is loose or compact, powder work as a setting agent that seal makeup and accentuate skin by giving it a smooth, polished finish.
 
Free from paraben, tar color, benzophenone, artificial fragrance, mineral oil, and animal ingredients, Yadah Air Powder Pact contains cactus extract that soothes skin comfortably. 
 
http://lifelittletales.wordpress.com/
http://lifelittletales.wordpress.com/
 
I like how this moisturizing mineral powder could adhere to the skin and hide the visibility of the large pores and other imperfections even further. This ultra fine powder has a silky texture that gives the skin a matte, flawless finish and I appreciate how my makeup could stay fresher and longer.
 
It is comforting to know that it has SPF35/PA++ so whenever I do touch up,  I am also replenishing my sun protection.

Yadah Air Powder Pact is available in two shades, #19 Light Beige and #21 Natural Beige.

Gülsha Face Oil

5 Mar

How I can not fall in love with this rose garden in a bottle!

http://lifelittletales.wordpress.com/

http://lifelittletales.wordpress.com/

Though it is oil but the texture of this fluid is so light that it does not feels like oil at all. I like how it could penetrate into the skin quickly and turning my skin into a silky smooth and soft canvas without leaving any greasy residue.

http://lifelittletales.wordpress.com/

http://lifelittletales.wordpress.com/

With the high concentration of 4000kg of Damask Roses in 1L of pure oil and being free from parabens, sulfates, artificial colorings, synthetic rose oil and fragrances, it is no wonder that this skin enhancer would works its magic to oxygenate, balance and rejuvenate the skin while improving the skin’s elasticity, boost its hydration level, aid in healing as well as maintaining the skin’s radiance and softness.  

http://lifelittletales.wordpress.com/

Not only that Gülsha Face Oil is very nourishing and hydrating, its healing power is amazing too. In fact, the irritable dry patch on my thighs that I have been treating with argan oil for many months without success has miraculously healed in 3 days!     

While I would use this elixir to pacify of my poached skin whenever it needs an instant boost, I am also using a few drops this highly concentrated essence to massage my face every night after splashing on Gülsha Rose Water. I like how it would work overtime to repair and rejuvenate my skin while I sleep. As a result, my skin would look fresher and feel luxuriously soft and smooth the next morning and I certainly love that radiant glow that I see in the mirror!

Gulsha Rose Water

4 Mar

Hello ladies! What do you do whenever you receive a bouquet of rose? Do arrange them in a vase and admire their beauty for the next few days? Or would you air-dry them over the next few weeks to preserve them as dried flowers? I have once boiled them. I simmered the petals with distilled water to make myself a bottle of rose water spray but seriously, many of you would believe that this little DIY trick would do your skin wonders?

Nay! 

Rose Water is no doubt the secret of many beauties for centuries, but it definitely takes more than rose petals and water to make this elixir. And that it is why I was overjoyed when I come to know about Gulsha Damask Rose Water

http://lifelittletales.wordpress.com/

What makes Gulsha Damask Rose Water so precious is that contained within every 200ml of the Rose Water is a thousand of preciously handpicked Damask Roses from the yearly harvest and Damask Roses, being the Queen of Flowers, are known for its hydrating and toning benefits. 

Gulsha Rose Water contains 99.9% natural rose extracts, undiluted with water and is delicately produced using the traditional steam distillation techniques and free from parabens, sulfates, artificial colorings and fragrances.

With the ingredient so limited and pure, it is no wonder that people often refer Gulsha Rose Water as Liquid Gold

Indeed, Liquid Gold it is and I just love every drop of it!

http://lifelittletales.wordpress.com/

It has been two weeks since I have started using this Gulsha Rose Water and I have already witness leaps of improvement on my skin. Due to its rich content of natural antioxidant properties and Vitamin C, it has helps to tone and brightens up my skin tone while soothing my otherwise dull and dry skin with intense hydration. As a result, my skin looks rejuvenated, refreshed and well rested. 

http://lifelittletales.wordpress.com/http://lifelittletales.wordpress.com

I find the scent of the rose water very therapeutic and I am using it in place of a toner to balance pH level after cleansing, I am using it as a mask to soothe and hydrate my dull and poached skin, I am using it to erase my panda-looking under eye circles, I am using it as a face mist to perk my skin while working in the freezing office and I am using it as a relaxation aromatherapy. In fact, I have found so many uses of the gentle, multi-functional rose water that the list would goes on and on..

Gangnam Laser Clinic

3 Mar

What you do expect from an express facial?

Personally, I would want a treatment that uses the most minimal time to produce the most maximum result.

And how long do you expect the duration of an express facial to be?

60 minutes? 45 minutes? Or perhaps 30 minutes?

http://lifelittletales.wordpress.com/

The one that I have recently did at Gagman Laser Clinic take less than 10 minutes, excluding the consultation of course. In fact, the consultation with the very charismatic, Korean looking, Dr Moses Ng had taken a longer time than the laser facial itself, probably because that was my first time visit and also that I am way too problematic :-,

http://lifelittletales.wordpress.com/

Talking about the consultation, I really appreciate how this friendly doctor took time to understand the patient’s needs and explained how their laser treatments will benefit the patient.

I like that he is very genuine and does not gives pig-can-fly kind of promises. When I whined about the pigmentations on my cheeks, he offered comfort by telling me Melasma is very common on Asian women and suggested that I should try topical therapy before considering other drastic measures.

Alright, back to the laser facial.

http://lifelittletales.wordpress.com/

After the clinic therapist has cleansed my face, Dr Moses Ng assessed my skin again before starting with the toning laser to target the deeper layer of the skin. Besides stimulating of collagen production, it could also helps to tighten and tone the skin. Though he has warned that there might be a slight sensation but the thick-skin me did not experienced any pain or discomfort and before I knew it, it was all  over ;-)

The second laser that the doctor has performed was a micro-peeling laser that targets the surface layer of the skin. This laser actually helps to remove dull and dead skin cells from the skin’s surface and the result was instant, Immediately, my skin felt smoother and hey, I was glowing with radiance!  

What’s a facial without a mask?

Once the doctor has done with the laser, the therapist came into the room and pampered me with a cold, cold mask taken right from the fridge. This mask is super cooling on the skin and the therapist explained that this tissue mask will also helps to soothe the skin, optimize the laser treatment and provides intense hydration.

The beautiful part is that, it only needs five minutes on the face and the entire treatment is completed.

Whew!

http://lifelittletales.wordpress.com/

Fast, zero downtime, instant glow and with the result getting better and better by day, this is the ultimate Express Laser Facial that suits anyone and everyone!  Try it yourself, this Express Laser Facial is priced at $88 for first time patient and all skincare, including the laser are from Korea.

For myself, I am seriously contemplating going back for fillers >:)

Maybelline Baby Skin Pore Eraser

2 Mar

1I usually prefer my primer to be tinted but this translucent gel amazed me.

3

Almost immediately, my face turned into a flawless canvas and my strawberry-like pores disappeared.  Its thin consistency is weightless and my skin feels velvety soft. My complexion looks incredibly smooth and my foundation glides on easily thereafter. Serving as a base, it helped my makeup to stay on fresher and lasted longer.

4

5Thanks to its great blurring power,  a second is all I need to create an illuision of a clear, smooth complexion and now I could even skip makeup on lazy days!

2

Possibly the best drug store primer around, I would say.

Elizabeth Arden – Untold

27 Feb

Untold. 

But I have a story tell.

Though not a typically Cheong Sum kind of person (in fact, Cheong Sum always makes me feel fat and I am breathless in them) but in the mood of the festive spirits, I have gamely sent in this picture to take part in Elizabeth Arden’s Facebook #UntoldArden QOTD Contest. I wrote that I hoped the fruity and floral scent of the Elizabeth Arden new fragrance UNTOLD could jazz up this traditional dress a bit.. Alright, the truth is that I was too lazy to put up a proper outfit so I simply snap a shot of what I was wearing that day but guess what? My entry has won in the contest and for that, I was rewarded handsomely with a 100ml Untold EDP as well as an exclusive necklace MADE WITH SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS!

http://lifelittletales.wordpress.com/

Yippee!

The taste of winning a prize is sweet and what make it even more meaningful is that I am receiving a gift from my favorite brand!

http://lifelittletales.wordpress.com/

http://lifelittletales.wordpress.com/A matter of fact, I have started using perfume when I was sixteen and my very first bottle was none other than Elizabeth Arden Red Door. 

Yes, you heard me right, a silly sixteen year old school girl using a fragrance far more matured and sophisticated for her own age. But I didn’t care. It was love at first sniff. I had instantly fell in love with the scent the moment I tried it on my wrist and it has become my signature scent ever since. Then a year later, I met a man who came running after me because he liked how I smell. This man has fallen in love with the scent that I was wearing before falling for me. I didn’t care either. And this man has become my husband. 

Now two decades, many versions and countless bottles of Red Door later,  I am still happy to receive a bottle of Red Door on valentines, birthdays and anniversaries from the same man.  But before life gets too boring, perhaps it is the time to spice up our senses a bit with this younger, fresher fragrance ^_^
