JolieBébé Lip Care!

Finally something to pamper our LIPS!!

But before that……

Did you know that lips do not sweat? That’s because lips don’t have sweat glands! Sweat glands play a crucial role of moisturizing the skin and since, lips don’t have sweat glands they dry out faster than any other part of the body..

Did you know that lips also lack natural protective oil? No sweat glands and no oil equates to vulnerability! This means that lips are highly exposed to cold, wind and sun. The only way to protect the lips from these natural elements is to use some kind of lip balm. For women, lipsticks work equally well..

Did you know that your lips grow thinner as you grow old? This happens because with aging, the collagen production of body decreases. Collagen is a vital protein and one of its functions is to give shape to the lips. Reduced production of collagen implies that lips start losing their plumpness.

With that, let me share with you my lip care pampering kit!! I bought these on Qoo10 for S$18.70 – consist of 1 lip polish, 1 lip treatment & 5 lip mask!

Lip Polish – S$6.90 each

Lip Treatment – S$6.90 each

Lip Mask – S$2.00 each

I bought them as a bundle pack hence a lower price instead of S$23.80 (if u do the math)..


LIP POLISH: Acts like a lip scrub. It exfoliate your lip dead skin and fix those rough lips surface, leaving your lips smooth and soft.

The beauty of it is that it contain Jojoba Oil, Shea Butter, Ginkgo Biloba Leaves Extract, Olive Oil, Sweet Flora Flavour!

Sweet Flora.. seriously?? no wonder it smells so nice!!!


The grain of beads in this polish is pretty gentle yet effective. Although it’s not the best lip scrub I had used but definitely not the worst!

HOW TO USE: Apply on wet lips and gently rub for 20-30 secs. After that wash with lukewarm water. I usually do this after shower as the effect seems better..


LIP TREATMENT: Like a lip balm, Pretty moisturizing and it give a pretty nice shine actually. It contains Almond Oil, Babassu Oil and Sweet Flora Flavor!

HOW TO USE: Apply as last step after your lip polish/lip mask.


So here’s how I usually do it…

  1. Scrub for 30 sec
  2. Mask for 20-30 mins (depends on my mood)
  3. Apply lip treatment
  4. Go to sleep!


Usually, I will wake up with a soft moisturized lips!

Below is a comparison of my lips before and after lip scrub & mask!


I’m sure u can see the difference. Looks more moisturized, healthier and “younger” – less less wrinkle leh or am I imagining things!

Now since we’re talking about lips, let me share more with you more about our sexy lips..

Did you know that lip cancer is more prevalent in men than in women? This is because men usually don’t use lip balms and using lipsticks is simply out of question for men. Women on the other hand usually use lipsticks that keep their lips protected from harmful UV rays of Sun.

Did you know that lips are very sensitive – more sensitive than genitals? Because of numerous nerve ending they possess, lips are extremely sensitive to touch or tactile senses. This is why toddlers and babies tend to explore new things by touching them with lips.

Did you know that there is a flower in South America called “Hooker’s Lips” because it resemble a set of hooker’s lip? It can be found in the tropical rain forests of Central and South America. It evolved into its current shape to attract hummingbirds and butterflies.

Sep Bellabox: Pink Me Up!

Hi All!! Are you excited already after seeing my subject?? Yes, it’s Bellabox time again! After soooo long! hahaha This months box is pretty amazing.. I LOVE IT!



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!

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 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.

The Perfect Pout?

Have u always wanted a beautiful lips? No chapped no dry no crack no bleed!?? (FYI, I have all the above!)

And again, I’m going to share some tips with u from Singapore Women’s Weekly magazine I saw the other day! I find it pretty awesome!!


Before I have the habit of using lip balm, I have very unsightly lips! They chapped like nobody’s business.. But slowly I try to make it a habit to put on lip balm, I find my lips are getting better! Especially when I apply them overnight!!! Juz apply a generous amount (generous, not humongous) and go to sleep! Next day, MOISTURIZED LIP!!!

So I’ve tried below balm and think they’re pretty good! They are not those oily type that will make u feel that your lips are covered with oil!

– Mentholatum Deep Moist (non-menthol)


– Vaseline Lip Therapy


– Make Up Store Lip Treatment



– Dirty Works Lip Balm (this will be a little oily but it gives your lip a shiny glow like u had put on a lip gloss!)
*no pic as balm is in office* – yes! I left one in office so that I can care for my lips during working hours, in air-condition environment!!

And I had a lip mask too!!! I did a post in my lip mask which you can find out more from HERE!

All in all, I juz wana say, a beautiful lip is attainable if u put in some effort to care for them! And very soon u’ll have beautiful pout! Geez! Heehee!

Lip Exfoliating Mask!!

Good day girls!!! Today I’m going to share w u my new loveeeee!! Aaaw~~


Here! A lip mask!! To be exact it’s a exfoliating lip mask! Gosh! I’m so impressed!

A little history how I get to know this mask? Well, I attended a beauty workshop by Style Essential Inc., a really hands on workshop! They use Mary Kay products & Mary Kay is actually a product from US. (i thot from korea initially!)

At the workshop the trainer let us try most of their products and see the difference.. From hand spa to face mask to lip mask to foundation primer, mineral loose powder, blusher, eyeliner!! And immediately I fall in love with the lip mask & foundation primer. Tho I did not make the purchase immediately that day but it really made me thinking about it for days when I went home! Then I decided to text my trainer to get one… LIP MASK! Foundation primer prolly later..


Ta-daaaa!! Here it is! My long awaited lip mask!! Geeez! I used it immediately when I returned home.


It’s a small tube that can last at least 6 months? That’s what I was told..


Apply a little bit on ur lips and massage in a circular motion then leave on for 1-2 minutes.


See.. Just like that.. Then rinse off with water when time is up!


And here…..! My chapped-no-more lips!!!! For best result, I personally advise u to apply healing lip balm to see faster result of beautiful lips!

**applying lip balm now**
