Whitening Supplements [IDS Lyco-White / Gluta Pancea]

0 No tags Permalink

Brows: Etude House Drawing Eyebrow Duo, Eyes: Urban Decay Naked Heat palette, Cheeks: 3CE #Peach Crush, Lips: Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer

I’m naturally tanned (as you can probably tell by now) which is a total opposite from my mum. Over the years, I’ve tried quite a number of whitening skincare products. Some of them actually do work, but I soon realised that they introduced different skin tones between my face and body. *gasp*

I’ve tried whitening body lotion too, but it doesn’t work as well. You might wonder why didn’t I use those whitening skincare products that were meant for face, on my body too?

Duh. You think I’m Jamie Chua or Datok meh? 🤷🏻‍♀️

I wish I could print earn money that fast too. Not forgetting the amount of effort needed to applying on all over (bigger surface areasssss get it?). 💰🌲

Every morning I pop just a couple before my breakfast! 🍽

So I turned to supplements. 💊

The rationale was instead of applying products merely on the surface of my skin,  supplements work inside-out rather than vice-versa (if it works lah)? Moreover, it’s definitely faster and less clumsy in application as compared to external products.

I did my research by comparing the top recommended brands online and in this day and age, who could forget the “digital word-of-mouth”. I then shortlisted the candidates to these 2 brands – IDS Lyco-White (local Singapore brand) and Gluta Pancea (product of Thailand).

Experience Deep Cleansing with Origins x Sephora

0 No tags Permalink

Ever since I recovered from the massive outbreak, I have been extra cautious about the products I use. However, that doesn’t stop me from looking out for good products that will keep nightmares at bay or even better, improve my complexion.

That said, I got my hands on a few Origins products from Sephora Singapore a while ago added to my beauty regime – Of course, as usual, I’m working towards a much clearer skin and here I’m giving my review!

Best Massage Places In Johor Bahru, Malaysia [Updated June 2017]

20 No tags Permalink

Massage is something that I totally couldn’t appreciate when I was “young”. It’s soooo ticklish~~ I ended up enduring my giggles until I burst into laugher, influencing the masseuse too. Then, I started Events & Modelling on a full time basis, with long hours on killer heels – especially those 5″ stilettos during tradeshows, runways, etc. ?

Your back becomes so sore, and your feet become so numb until you can’t feel them anymore. FML seriously. 真的会死人 aka really can die. ?

That’s when I started my massage journey wherever I went. I travelled to Malaysia more frequently starting about a year back, and I started trying out various different massage parlours there too.

Google – like what everyone does nowadays to search for the best massage places in Johor Bahru, Malaysia. From blog reviews to TripAdvisor to random websites, I realised the places were more or less the same. It’s just as if someone went and reviewed the place online, then everyone else just followed and reviewed the same few places over and over again. ?

Don’t get me wrong – Some* of the massage parlours reviews are pretty decent. Some were pretty bad but crazily raved making me doubt those people who wrote the post if they ever had a decent massage in their life.

Most of these places that were highly reviewed had 1 thing in common when I personally tried them – the masseuses skills were not consistent?

So after trying out what the Internet has to offer, I started exploring random massage places and also by asking the locals – such as coffeeshop aunties, workshop/carwash uncles, etc.

In this post, I will talk about my favourite massage places that I go to frequently in Johor Bahru, Malaysia that is really good. This meant places that I had patronised at least 3 times or more with consistently good service and more importantly, good massage skills. I had enough of lousy massage making more tired and sore than ever.

… Worse still, bruises the next day (Simi sai lo. Pay to suffer). ?

My 30-minute Lunch Time Facelift! [Hiko Nose Threads + Dermalift]

0 No tags Permalink

Hiko Nose Threadlift and Dermalift done in less than 30 minutes. ⏰

For those who have been following my blog, you would probably realize that for me, fillers doesn’t last long on my nose and cheeks. However, I wasn’t ready to go for surgical implants (aka a permanent nose job). The thought of it just scares me – especially when my two not-so-small dogs love to cuddle up with me (what if they paw’ed my nose!? 🐾😱).

But no, I didn’t give up washing for a sharper and smoother nose line… Contouring using makeup helps to create the illusion of a sharper nose but from the side view, the small bump on my nose ridge is still there.

No amount of makeup could help hide that other than Mei Tu Xiu Xiu (it’s branded by many to be the Photoshop-ish beauty app of mobile phones, some even say it’s even better than Photoshop.) #照骗😪

8 Medical Aesthetic is located in the heart of Town.

After much research about the procedure I wanted, Reene from 8 Medical Aesthetic helped me to arrange a consultation with Dr. Daniel Chang!

True to its branding of being a “Lunchtime Procedure” – you can literally get it done during your lunch break and head back to your daily operations immediately after that!

I went down to 8 Medical Aesthetic located at Cuppage Road during a weekday lunch in-between my events and meetings as the whole procedure is pretty fast (less than 30 minutes for Dermalift and HIKO Nose Threadlift) – unlike the traditional medical procedures.

It’s so fast that your friends and colleagues will wonder where you went or did that made you much prettier suddenly in just a lunch break. *flips hair* #心机美人👸🏼✨

Areas that needed to enhanced 👃🏻

Yeap! That’s Dr. Daniel Chang!

Dr. Daniel is well known for his Korean medical aesthetic and skills.

Basically anything to do with beauty and face, he is THE person to go for. I know it because I have been going to him even before I started blogging. 😉
