BRAND’S® InnerShine® RubyCollagen Essence Drink


A recent survey has found that Singapore workers are spending more hours at work relative to their regional counterpart, resulting in workplace stress.* Together with the sedentary lifestyle from sitting at the desk the entire day, Singapore workers are facing increased risks of high blood pressure and heart diseases.

*S’pore workplace stress on the rise survey, the Business Times, 27 Aug 2016

Now what has that gotta do with today’s post? Read on..


Introducing Unique RubySignature™ Formula!

Unlike normal collagen, RubySignature™ formula is created with a unique and precious blend of ingredients derived from natural sources. It contains micro-collagen and one of mother nature’s most powerful antioxidants, astaxanthin (micro-algae extract). Scientifically proven, its anti-oxidant power is 6000 times more powerful than Vitamin C, 800 times more powerful than CoQ10 and 500 times more powerful than Vitamin E.


Collagen is necessary to support the skin’s structural foundation to improve firmness and elasticity for youthful and supple skin. Astaxanthin serves as the perfect complement by acting as a natural shield against the collagen-depleting procedure. In containing both micro-collagen and astaxanthin, RubySignature™ formula defies the ageing process by performing a vital triple-action of supplying collagen, protecting against collagen degradation and delivering collagen efectively to skin cells..

Infused with natural pomegranate juice, BRAND’S® InnerShine® RubyCollagen makes for a truly delicious treat and an indispensable beauty oral supplement that addresses the heightened needs of aging skin. Designed to easily complement your existing topical skin care routine to form a comprehensive beauty regimen, the BRAND’S® InnerShine® RubyCollagen Essence range is available in both drink and strip formats. Daily consumption will help to ensure that your body is adequately supplied with the essential nutrients for optimal skin support and protection. For optimum efficacy, it is recommended that BRAND’S® InnerShine® RubyCollagen be consumed twice daily to experience the skin age-reversing diference in 6 weeks*.

*Results may vary according to individuals

I had drank this for about a week now. I can’t say it changed me totally but I can see the radiance on my skin every morning when I look into the mirror! (Can’t be sure if that the glow of entering married life or.. LOL) Anyway, I do like this product as it’s sweet and easy to bring around. I’ve already packed it and was suppose to bring to Bali for my honeymoon trip but it slipped my mind..! Tsk!

(Hmm, got drifted a bit….)

Nonetheless, not to late to start when I returned because there were breakouts on my face during my trip (caused by the wedding’s heavy makeup I believe)!! After consuming 2-3 bottles I started to see slight result – my breakouts are healing, skin getting better too.. Who doesn’t love to see a beautiful self? At least I do! Although this drink sweet (might be a lil too sweet if u don’t really like soft drink) but it can be tastier if it’s sparkling!
Seriously, I  can’t help to think that at my age, I really need the aid of collagen drink to help me maintain YOUTH!!! hahaha! If I didn’t recall wrongly, an average person will need 5000mg  of collagen per day and consistancy is the key..! Just drinking 1-2 bottles a day, you’ll get smoother skin, firmer skin, less wrinkle formation.. WHY NOT???

MU MIEUX Collagen Beauty Drink by Mary Chia

Do you know what’s my number one wishlist every Christmas?

Stay BEAUTIFUL & always looks YOUNG, of course!

If you are a frequent reader on,  I’m sure you are aware I’m a beauty drink lover! I love anything that can replenish collagen, brighten/even skin tone and i think i need skin tightening already! O_o

Why am I so crazy about collagen and maintaining even skin tone you ask? That’s because our collagen and elastin production begins to slow down when we reach the age of… *drumroll* 25!! That’s almost like as soon as you graduate from college? ! By the time we reach 40 (don’t even wanna think about it!) we would have lost 25% of our optimum collagen level! I don’t wanna look like 60 when I’m only 40! Hence the fastest & easiest way to replenish/imporove collagen level is to drink beauty drink!


Yup! Thanks to,  I get to try Mary Chia’s Mu Mieux Collagen Beauty Drink!


About MU Nutrition+

A revolutionary new line of nutrition dietary supplements brought to you by MU.

Many of us today are often unable to obtain all aspects of our nutritional requirements based on our day-to-day dietary intakes. Living in today’s modern society, we are also exposed daily to high levels of electro-magnetic waves from electronic gadgets and equipment that we use on a daily basis; this on-going exposure to environmental free radicals and the consumption of processed, genetically-modified foods creates imbalance within our body which can result in long-term detrimental effects on our health and overall well-being.

The MU Nutrition+ range of supplements is designed to address common concerns such as:
– Pre-mature ageing due to loss of collagen and key vitamins for skin and organs
– Improve body’s detoxification abilities
– Enhance gastro-intestinal health by introducing beneficent bacteria (Probiotics)
– Improve overall metabolism and blood circulation
– Block/displace excess fat, sugars and carbohydrates consumed through daily diet
– Enhance overall organ functions
– Increase energy levels and vitality
– Improve immunity

Like any good lifestyle habits, there is never a better time to start than NOW – start taking responsibility of your health and wellness today.
Because good health is the greatest wealth of all!


This collagen drink comes in a box of 8 and each bottle contains 3000mg of BHN Collagen and 10mg or Ceramide.. Just drink 1 bottle before going to bed and you are way to beautiful skin! For best enjoyment, chill it first and remember to shake well!


IMO, this collagen drink is pretty sweet and need not worry about any fishy smell (because they used fish collagen) or slimy texture.. It’s like drinking ribena (just a different color and flavour one perhaps..) I really enjoyed drinking my collage drink every night!

Have already completed half the course and if you ask me how I look now.. I would say I still looks the same! However there’s one thing I did notice… My skin feels more supple and make up seems to last longer now… Supple skin means good result for everything you use!!

Trulife Product Launch

After a hectic week (endless meetings), what do you wish for the most??? For me, I just wanna sit back, relax and think of nothing else!! … & seems like someone out there sense that I need to rejuvenate soon before I’m burn out!

Thanks to VanityTrove, I was invited to an exclusive Trulife new product launch event & get to enjoy a complimentary (customized) spa service by Willow Stream Spa last week!!


Correct! Event is held at Willow Stream Spa, Fairmont Singapore – 几 atas 一下有没有 ! 😀


Just look at the view… @_@ I assume it’s Raffles Hotel in front..


Arrived pretty early actually.. 🙂 But before I go into more details of this event.. how many out there actually heard of Trulife (万代)? How about Poli Medical?

Trulife (万代) is actually another quality brand by Poli Medical Company Pte Ltd!

Loosely translated, “万代” means multi-generation in Chinese. TruLife is a trusted brand of nutritious health products and health foods, developed for the modern multi-generation family’s health needs..

TruLife is a contemporary health-care brand which aims to answer the health and lifestyle needs of today’s society. From the young adult who has just stepped out into the workforce, to the busy all-rounder mother who juggles multi commitments, to the active mature consumer into travel and leisure, everyone needs to keep their bodies in peak condition to enjoy life’s offerings. We understand that the today’s society thrives on convenience. With this in mind, our products have been developed and manufactured on this premise.

Through diligent observation and efforts into research and innovative product development, we develop products that contain a combination of herbal and western ingredients, producing optimal results for targeted body function.

Now you know? Well, at least NOW I KNOW… 😀


At the entrance were all the event host.. Names that I can recall are Dylan Hu (Director of Poli Medical Company Pte Ltd), Debbie from Vanity Trove & staff from Asia PR werks. Friendly bunch of people who helped me with the registration when I got there.. 🙂

Well, being early means you gotta wait longer. T_T But good thing is that there are food to fill my stomach before it starts “rioting” in me..


I must say, I definitely love their satay!! There were many who love the fish as well.. Infused water were served during the event.. It’s my first time trying infused water and I like it! (P.S.: I don’t consider restaurant “lemon” water as infused water ah pls!!) Maybe I can start finding some infused water recipe (will share with you guys in another post!!)

Now, can I go straight to the highlight for the day already?? I can’t wait to share it already!!!

So the product they’re launching is/are……… *drumroll* (make a guess??)


Wah… Bird nest???


NOPE NOPE!! Not Bird Nest (I wish it was~ LOL)! These bird nest are Trulife existing products. It’s suitable for pregnant women and after childbirth, infants, children and growing teenagers, elderly with poor digestion, people suffering from fatigue or weak digestion, people recovering from long bouts of illness. I will not elaborate more about this since it’s not our highlight of this post…

They’re launching…….HEALTH SHOT – supplement drink that helps you to REJUVENATE From Within!

IMG_6447.JPG IMG_6458.JPG

Yes, from the above picture on the right, you can see what they actually display on our tables – the product and its ingredient – 真用心!! At least I’m seeing “LIVE” ingredient then some googled images. This helps me understand the product better and the scent of these ingredient are still pretty strong, especially the prune!!

One thing to note before I go on further… With no added sugar, these supplement drinks are suitable for diabetic too!! *HURRAY*



Start of the event is actually to educate us about Trulife and it’s heartwarming to know that Trulife has been around for three generation already! Yup, Dylan is the 3rd gen & you can read more details about him HERE!

We were also given the opportunity to try the product while he explains & go through the slides.. (I believe not all supplement drinks are new launch.. read on to see what I mean..)

IMG_6435.JPG IMG_6454.JPG

TruLife Collagen Cell Renew ($56.60/box) with 15,000mg of pure Micro Marine Collagen Peptides is a tasty functional drink which targets fine lines, locks in moisture and brightens complexion to leave you with suppler, firmer skin. It has seen clinically proven results of a 50% increase in moisture loevel of the skin and a 13% decrease in UV spot area. Some may even see these result within 10 days of consuming this high potency concentration. Collagen Cell Renew also helps battle skin aging and whitens skin. Its impressive collagen level is complement by zinc and vitamins for overall health benefits.

TruLife Collagen Cell Renew uses only low molecular weight collagen peptides of deep sea fish origin ensuring that your body only absorbs the highest grade of collagen available today.

I believe this is the NEW launch product.. 🙂 It taste sweet but not horrendous kinda sweet. It’s acceptable! It’s a lil sour too but not to worry, the sweetness can cover that! Another thing you probably can’t see from the picture is that this drink is a lil thicker than water. It’s like some kinda thick syrup..

IMG_6434.JPG IMG_6456.JPG

Next up is TruLife Berry EyeHealth! This is something that’s already available on shelf before this event I believe..

Trulife Berry EyeHealth is a vital eye supplment specially formulated to help your eyes maintain clear eyesight, relieve eye fatigue, keep them bright and sparkling (You can’t neglect the window to your soul right!?) and target common problems such as cataract and symptoms of glaucoma.

Made from high concentration of billberry and wolfberry known for their restorative properties, these powerful antioxidants protect against free radical damage and nourish the eyes by giving them maximum nutrients.

This taste very yummy! Berries are yummy!! If you think berries gonna make this drink sour.. Nah~ you’re wrong! It’s still sweet!! Has a lil herbal scent but still acceptable!! This is not like the collagen drink so thick hence it’s very easy to drink~! ❤


Next up, the Herbal System Detox is 10-day detox programs which helps your body in its digestive process and lessen oil absorption giving your body a clean and clear start you can feel.


Do you wish you could enjoy your meals and not gain weight?? I’m not sure this can really help but it says that its a natural alternative to dieting that allows you to indulge your appetite and stay lean with less effort!!

Today’s modern lifestyle is riddled with stress. Impurities from the food we eat can also leave your body feeling unhealthy and weak. TruLife Herbal System Detox uses 6 Natural active ingredients (Green Tea, Folium Sennae, Herba Plantaginis, Lotus Leaf, Hawthorn Fruit, Cassia Seed) with Prune Extract and Vitamins to combat today’s life challenges – fast detoxification,Herbal System enhances digestive health and lessens oil absorption after meals!

Herbal System Detox also improves kidney and liver functions, helps stimulate regular bowel movement to prevent toxin accumulation and increases metabolism!

This has the worst scent/fragrance/smell (whatever you call it!!) among the them… Doesn’t look very tasty already. Smells so bitter (herbal) somemore, not even a bit of sweetness! T_T.. Just looking at the color of it I’m so hesitate to try.

To drink or not to drink.. To drink or not to drink… To drink or not to drink… (O_o)

…. Bravely, I gulp it down..!

I mentioned earlier that no added sugar right? So what kinda taste are you expecting?? Bitter? Sour? Horrible till no words can describe??

Actually it’s sweet more than bitter. In fact, after trying, I wouldn’t even say it’s bitter..! It smell and taste totally different. Texture wise, it’s not as thick as the Collagen Cell Renew so it’s actually pretty ok for me.. But I think to finish all 10 bottles continuously I will need some motivation.. LOL!!




After the tasting session, we were also being briefed/educated by Yingjie (holding a TCM degree!) the importance of Ying & Yang in our body.. It was a pretty interesting session!! Did you know that too much of either one is not good for your body. Balance is the key word!

After all the talking.. we were being lead to our massage room to enjoy our customised serviced by Willow Stream Spa!!

From below pic I’m sure u can tell which massage I opt for..






Foot Detox!! It was really GOOOOD!! I even fell asleep half way….. Zzzz…

After the session, we all head back to the seminar room for a closing and you know what, we were all being given a goodie bag!! ^___^ What’s in the bag?? It’s a 10-days supplement drink catered according to the spa service we requested and a Tri-Kit Pack!!



(From left to right: Dylan, Me, Yingjie & Angel)


It was a fruitful night and I’m glad I was invited to this event… Thank you to the awesome team who made this happen!!

ITOH Collagen Drink

How many of you actually consume collagen daily? Be it collagen drink or collagen jelly or even capsules..! For me, I enjoy consuming beauty supplements because I see the result! They are more effective than facial! However, I don’t have that “vitamin M(oney)” to invest long term and I always forget about it! Hence my once-a-day routine becomes once-every-3 days! T_T

BUT now…. with ITOH Collagen Drink, hahaha~~ I can have it 2 – 3 times a day instead of once every 2 – 3 days! Drink when I remember!! Haha!



So what makes this collagen drink so special that you can consume more than once per day?

Itoh Collagen contains 3000mg of Collagen per sachets, that can be dissolve to any drink or soup. Using a special technology to extract collagen from Pig cartilage and Pig Skin and conform to a powder form. Low Molecular powder enhance the absorption of collagen, to capture all the benefits that collagen contributes.

Itoh illus

Itoh Collagen is color-less, tasteless, non-sugar, non-fat collagen powder that can be taken throughout the day!

A person is recommended to have 5000mg of collagen per day, however, depending on age and the condition of your skin around the face and eyes, some individuals notice better results when taking 10,000mg per day. Now you know why you can enjoy your collagen sachet 2 – 3 times a day?

Do you know when you should/can start taking beauty supplement?


Yes, at age 25, your collagen level decrease rapidly and this is when you need your beauty supplement!! If you do not have sufficient collagen, wrinkles & fine lines will form! >_< 我不要~

low coll

With enough collagen, your skin will be radiant & elastic and your skin will absorb the beauty products better when you apply them!! ( * v * )

suff coll

So the next morning, I head down to the coffee shop to have my breakfast and tried my collagen powder! I ordered my usual Ice Lemon Tea (before the food came) and start to mix the collagen powder in it..


I’m glad that there is no weird taste added to my tea and it delivered their promise – taste-less collagen powder! My ice lemon tea still taste like how it should be! No weird plastic smell or rubbery taste..  but….. erm…


I don’t think it is color-less??? my lemon tea became lemon “milk” tea… HAHAHAHA!! It looks a bit gross here but the taste is still my ice lemon tea! Just have to keep stirring to dissolve/mix the powder better..

Overall, I’ve quite satisfied with ITOH Collagen and I think this one of the collagen drink I will recommend to those taste-sensitive consumers. This one really has NO weird taste~!

If you are keen to try, you can head to Samplestore to redeem 3 days supply or you can purchase them directly from Hannah! Don’t wish to wait for delivery? Go to your nearest Guardian Pharmacy now and grab a pack for $49.90/Box (14 sachets per box)!

Before I forget.. a few key points to highlight!

  • This supplement is suitable for everyone except vegetarian.
  • Best time to consume this supplement is before sleeping or with an empty stomach.
  • Result is usually visible after 1 – 2 weeks, may varies with individual.

Seee! So many items this month! First thing that caught my attention is….. *drumroll*



THIS! JJOYY Bubble Peeling Pad! I had never seen this! Have you… ? I went to do a web search per the website provided and realise.. this might be another good stuff I will fall in love with!


Since the skin cells around the skin are soft tissue, if roughly treated it will cause trouble in stimulation. But it needs to be removed in 28-days period cycle to prevent dead skin cells being clogged up on the surface of the skin. If clogged, it will cause darkening and dehydration, which leads to wrinkled and dried skin!

J2 J3 J4 J5 J6 J7


Oh did I mention? This exfoliating pad can be reuse up to 3 times after first use. Just have to hang it in your bathroom when your done with it. Saw from some site that this pad can be used on other area where dead skin cells can be found.. ie: heels? elbow?

Amazing product ya? Let me try it tomorrow and I’ll tell u how I feel about it!



Next, facial scrub from LA CLINICA FOR SKIN & BODY!

LA CLINICA FOR SKIN & BODY is a 100% Australian owned and operated family business established by Ms. Rita-Marie Hopfner in 1995. LA CLINICA is a cosmeceutical skin care line with a focus on visible results, efficacy, safety and organic ingredients. Its luxurious, high performance products cater to all skin types and conditions. The range was created to treat skin problems without the side-effects that can result from harsh ingredients that may create secondary skin problems, sometimes worse than the original condition.

This facial scrub uses the same exfoliating particles as a micro-dermabrasion machine. The formulation is enhanced with glycolic acid and vitamin C, suitable in a skin whitening regime. Exfoliation removes dead skin cells to allow your moisturisers and other skin care products to penetrate and work more effectively. Regular exfoliation is vital in preventing skin from looking dull, dry, scaly and lifeless. Regular use of this scrub will help you achieve a smooth, refined and radiant complexion.

This product contains active ingredients:

Glycolic Acid – Smoothes and rebalances the complexion by promoting the exfoliation of dead skin cells and unclogging blocked pores. Outer layers of the skin are gently peeled away to reveal refined, fresher, younger looking skin for a more radiant appearance. Considered to be the most effective and suitable fruit acid for skin treatment products. Naturally derived from sugar cane.

Vitamin C – Reduces inflammation & photoageing via its powerful anti-oxidant activity. Strengthens skin conditions to help repair and rejuvenate the skin.

White Brilliant Complex – Possesses multiple tyrosinase inhibitors to block the overproduction of pigmentation and regulate further pigmentation production whilst brightening the complexion. Exclusive to LA CLINICA FOR SKIN & BODY.

After cleansing and toning, apply this scrub onto wet skin, avoiding eye area. Lightly massage with fingertips using small circular motion. Continue for up to 2 minutes. Rinse off thoroughly with warm water and LA CLINICA facial cloth. Follow with GLY C REFINE Skin Refining Facial Mask.

But that’s not important.. .now let’s see what we have here this month!!!


A few goodies are already waving at me!!!! Gosh!! Which are the few that hooked your attention!!? (hahaha!)

Let’s start with something everyone knows….20130526-133132.jpg

BRANDS Inner Shine Berry Essence with Grape Seed Extract! i got this essence in my previous trove too! i think it was my August Trove~ i haven try this one but i am sure every bottle taste the same!! hahahaha!! It’s very sweet and yummy (if i did not remember wrongly!)

A little brand history about Brands..

In the early 19th Century, King George IV ‘s flagging health had inspired the Royal Chef, H.W. Brand, to create an essence of chicken beverage to boost His Majesty’s physical condition.

After retiring from the Royal kitchen in 1835, Mr. Brand concocted BRAND’S® Essence of Chicken for commercial sale as food for convalescence and invalids. Renowned in the British Empire, BRAND’S® Essence of Chicken found its way to the Far East in 1920s, and had since gained popularity all over Asia.

Sought after for its wholesome goodness, BRAND’S® Essence of Chicken has since sold over 150 million bottles worldwide, which is more than 2650 Olympic sized swimming pools.

In 2004, BRAND’S® scientific expertise and research led to the launch of BRAND’S® InnerShine®, which unlocks the secrets to nature’s finest ingredients and helps women to care for their beauty needs through superior health nourishment.

BRAND’S® InnerShine® Berry Essence is bursting with the goodness of seven types of premium berries, specially selected from Europe and America. This combination of seven berries is an excellent source of antioxidants, which neutralize harmful free radicals in the body and prevent degeneration of eye cells. It contains Zinc and is fortified with Vitamin A, C & E, providing the required nutrients to benefit ocular health.

Pardon my ignorance.. i always thought BRANDS is a local brand! =X

3 samples from Apivita!! A cleanser, a face mask & a sun screen for oily-combination skin!

How many have heard Apivita btw?? I think its quite common in US isn’t it?? (or is it not??)

APIVITA was born in 1979, and was the first natural cosmetics company in Greece. Its sources of inspiration are: the society and the products of the bee, the rich Greek nature and the holistic approach of Hippocrates. The name `APIVITA` means the life of the bee and it stems from the Latin words APIS (bee) and VITA (life). APIVITA`s name reflects identity and our philosophy for an organized, productive and sustainable development modeled as the society of the bee. Our logo is inspired by the Bees of Malia, a rare piece of Minoan jewelry from the 18th-17th century BC. The two bees, together, form a union, symbolizing fertility and harmony. They are also surrounded by an open circle which represents the lyre of Apollo, symbolizing devotion, sustainable development and belief in ancient Greek culture.

Update on 26th June 2013:


Drinking my first pack today! pretty excited.. The fact that it’s not slimming powder makes me feel that it’s gona taste better! Lots better!


When pouring the powder, you can already smell the mild sweetness and you know this is gona taste good! It totally smells like those Vitamin C tablets (ie: Redoxon perhaps) or even Eno Fruit Salt.. 

IMG_2963 IMG_2962

The powder turns pink when u pour it into your drink (or juice) but its not gona change your drink color.. so dun worry! Overall, i think it’s pretty yummy and may taste better if you actually added it into juice than plain water. Plain water is tasteless and this powder does not taste as sweet as what you are smelling..


Lexus & Collagen drink is my breakfast for today!!

So that’s all for today! This is a relatively short post, short as in i did not do much review but will update them once i get to use any of the product!! Stay tune!

I feel so relax and enjoy using this shower gel..! It made mi so look fwd to my next shower time!!! hahahaha!! i think i’m gona spend that S$5 voucher getting something lavender!! Lavender essential oil perhaps.. what do you think?? *grin*

Next happy item i got is this!! Benefit’s Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow! Its a lightweight liquid foundation to FLAWLESS Skin!! HAHAH! Heard that this is Benefit FIRST liquid foundation! is it true!?? I like the way this foundation comes.. pump bottle instead of tube pack. but probably tube pack will be better when your foundation is running out.. u know y! haha! we can SQUEEZEEEE all the way for tt lil drop of foundation but we cant squeeze a pump bottle!! This travel size foundation is enuff to last me for at least a year! LOL! i shd start making good use of this already!! (Regular size 300ml: USD34)

KINOHIMITSU Collagen drink!!!!! I’m gg crazy for this!!! this is the most exciting product i got in this month’s box!! Spare mi those nutri-fruit bar!! i HATE it!!! taste bad! smells bad!! had heard a lot of good review about this beauty drink but no chance to really explore it further.. and now! i’ve got 2 bots of this beauty drink!!! aaaw.. <3<3<3

Móa’s miraculous healing powers soothe, nourish and renew dry, itchy skin conditions like, eczema and psoriasis, bumps, bites, grazes and minor burns.. Probably i can just throw this in my bag for any “Just-In-Case” incident!! it will be handy i guess.. plus its not very bulky!

In da box.. there’s also some promo notice and beauty tips! i think this beauty tips are quite achieveable.. u shd try it too!

Sleeping Beauty: Swedish scientist have discovered that beauty sleep really is essential to looking attractive. Aim for at least 7 hours sleep a night to be your beautiful best.

Prevent fine lines: Give skin a boost with a glycolic acid peel to speed up cell turnover. Glycolic acid is a natural exfoliator and moisturiser that helps to ‘unglue’ dead skin cells whilst drawing moisture into new skin cells.

Disguise dark circles: Didn’t manage to get those 7 hours sleep? Never fear, there is always concealer. The trick to hiding dark eye circles is to counteract them with a toned concealer – try one that is yellow based and one or two shades lighter than your foundation.

Prime: Primer is perhaps the most important step to creating flawless skin, not only do they even skin tone, smooth out fine lines, wrinkles, and even reduce the appearance of pores but also diffure light meaning your skin glows with natural beauty.

Prevent Shine: Buy yourself a very big brush! A large brush will help to achieve an airbrushed look and control shine thoughout the day – dip a large, fluffy brush in loose translucent powder and apply lightly all over
