Pump bottles are always the best, or at least that how I feel. Clean and hygienic.. Most importantly, less messy!


Cant see much difference on my hand? Fret not, I did a quick swatch personally and I like the look!

So here’s me with my bare face, more like bear face.. LOL!


The shade I’m using is N54 Beige (somewhere light to medium shade)! The texture of this foundation is pretty smooth and it’s easy to blend out, all thanks to its light weight factor!

As for coverage, it did cover my freckles pretty well making them less obvious and I’m happy with it! I guess the half face comparison can speak louder than my words.

Now on my whole face? Ta-daaa! Matte but not flat! Totally loving the combination of this foundation!! Semi-matte and giving you a lil glow! Able to cover my freckles yet still remain light weight and doesn’t feels cakey!! Aiseh~ Best of all, benefit that can’t be seen, the vitamins infused in this foundation!

How true? Read on again!!

This concealer comes in a small tube with cushion tip. Again, it’s a mess-free packaging and totally compact to bring around for touch-up etc.. ❤


I got myself a shade 51 (light), a tone lighter than my own complexion. This way, it can act as a highlighter as well! How smart! Okay, anyway, I guess you won’t be able to see much from the hand swatch.. Fret not (again!!), because I swatch it on my face too!


Healthy Mix collection seems really worthy! Concealer light weight too and easy to blend! The cushion tip can hold quite a decent amount of concealer hence you do not need to dap and dap again to get enough coverage.


I don’t know about you but I think it’s doing a decent job here. at least it covers my eye ring and yet doesn’t give me 2 white patch eye.. You know..

(image grabbed from google)

Esemtan Skin Balm

After trying esemtan wash lotion, I got pretty excited on this too – skin balm!

If you haven’t read about the wash lotion, I think you should.. click HERE!



Esemtan skin balm provides the skin with oil and moisture. Suitable for daily hand and body care for all skin types, it permeates deeply into the skin with oil-in water emulsion, and supports and cares for the skin to protect it from drying.

It is also suitable for children’s skin. It also contains added urea as a moisturising agent and also to speed up skin cell renewal. It is also dermatologically tested and helps to reduce skin irritation and itch. Besides that, Esemtan skin balm also comes with mild soothing fragrance, to allow users with dry & sensitive skin to enjoy a soothing touch of fragrance.

IMG_9250 IMG_9251


This may not be the best looking nor most appealing “moisturizer” but it’s one of those that works miracle! It had moisturized my hands greatly & I do mean GREATLY! I had a pair of old lady hand after I returned from Australia (it’s winter there)! Dry skin, harden cuticles – eew! After using for about 3-5 days, my fingers looks so much better!

Skin balm doesn’t get absorb as quickly as gel moisturizer but ths moisturizing effect seems double! Probably because it has oil in it that’s why moisture gets lock within the skin! And where can you actually get a skin balm that’s suitable for sensitive skin and has mild fragrance, plus suitable for all ages!!?

Skin Balm is also available Guardian, Unity, Watsons, Independent pharmacy (Pink beauty, Beauty essential), BHG for $20/500ml!

Esemtan Wash Lotion

How long have I not been online!? 1-2 weeks?? HAHAHA! I’ve been away for vacation!!! Best vacation ever!! Now that I’m back, I shall waste no time and share with you this product that was sent to me before my *ehem* VACATION~ (I shall share more about my awesome vacation another time!

To be honest, I haven’t heard of Esemtan before! I have no idea where it’s from nor what product they carry (that’s why I decided to give it a try!)
IMG_9249Schülke & Mayr UK Ltd – esemtan

Almost a million people in Singapore suffer dry and itchy skin. Ordinary soap can actually make things worse. And rapidly growing bacteria can cause serious health problems. Some non-soap cleansers kill the germs, but they also wash away your skin’s natural protection.

esemtan is the one hygienic wash that doesn’t harm your skin, damage your hair or sting your eyes. It contains a protective moisturiser and oil restoring substance that leaves your skin feeling clean, soft and smooth. Its low 5.0 pH balance means esemtan can be used for adults and babies every single day.

Skin problems? No problem. esemtan can help relieve irritation and accelerate the healing process. Even those with normal skin will enjoy its refreshing sensation and pleasant fragrance.

esemtan also cleans your bathroom. Now you can get rid of those messy soap and shampoo bottles. Get the one that’s clinically proven safe and effective for everyone. That’s why Singapore’s leading hospitals and health professionals around the world choose esemtan.

  • Gentle wash even in cases of dry or hypersensitivity to soap
  • Soap-free and pH skin-neutral formula
  • Mild fragrance
  • Protects the skin against irritation and supports the skin’s natural moisture
  • Universally usable on Hair, Face and Body
  • For all skin types, including babies and elderly


After using for about a week, I agree this wash lotion is really gentle to skin! Even the fragrance is mild! I felt as if I had used some anti-bac body wash – the clean feeling is good and it is not drying!! Should have brought it with me for my vacation!!

The best part has yet to come!! this wash lotion is ALL IN ONE! I can use it like a hand wash! I can use it like a body wash! Even hair wash is totally fine!!! Who needs to bring so much different bottle out for vacation!!!??

If you didn’t know:

  • Soap-free cleansers work on your skin the same way as soap, but they’re made of milder ingredients that do not deplete skin’s oils.
  • Urea is naturally found in healthy, young skin and is an important part of your skin’s natural, moisturizing system.
  • Use the 3-minute rule: Apply moisturizer within 3 minutes of your nightly cleansing and morning rinse.

Even if you have DRY and Sensitive skin, doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the luxury of using product without fragrance. Esemtan wash lotion comes with mild fragrance that helps to bring smile to your daily wash. Making you enjoying every moment – keeping you refresh and happy!

esemtan is now available in Guardian, Unity, Watsons, Independent pharmacy (Pink beauty, Beauty essential), BHG for $19.75/500ml & $35.30/1L!

Bioré UV AQUA Rich Watery Gel Review

To start this post, let’s enjoy a lil sing-along song!

Are you afraid of the big bad wolf?

Yes I am! But I’m more afraid of the SUN! The weather is getting crazier each day! Sun protection is a must in tropical country like Singapore! Summer all year long!!

I’m glad Bioré came up with the new UV AQUA Rich Watery Gel!!

Girls like me who are very prone to pigmentation should NEVER skip sun protection! Rain or shine, I always put on my sunblock!! Even when I’m indoor, sunblock is still a must! 

I’m not trying to scare you but did you know that prolonged exposure to the sun’s UV rays without proper protection can cause permanent effects such as premature skin ageing, wrinkles & freckles, as well as, various skin damages like discoloration, sallowness, dryness. In extreme cases, they can also lead to skin cancer!


The most damaging UV rays can be classified into different wavelengths, known as UVA and UVB. UVC is the shortest wave and usually do not penetrate the Earth’s Ozone Layer.

UVA rays penetrate into the deeper layers of our skin as compared to UVB rays, and are also the dominant tanning ray. The penetrative ability of UVA rays through glass means that even when you’re seeking shelter indoors, your skin continues to be exposed to its harmful effects which can cause cumulative damage such as wrinkling and skin ageing.

On the other hand, UVB rays cause the most damage to the outer layer of skin such as reddening of skin and sunburns. Without proper protection, prolonged exposure to UVB rays can cause long-term damage to skin’s epidermal layers.

Sunscreen products are rated based on two rating systems, known as the Skin Protection Factor (SPF) and the PA rating system. The SPF rating determines the duration of time your skin stays protected against UVB rays from the sun.

The calculation method is simple – SPF Rating x (no. of minutes for skin to darken under sun) = No. of minutes skin is protected from UVB rays!

Example: SPF50 x 20mins = 1000mins of protection from UVB (equivalent to 16 hours of protection)

Do bear in mind that the higher the SPF, the more likely it will be oilier (and heavier too)..

On the other hand, the PA rating is a Japanese rating system that shows how much protection you are receiving against UVA rays. The higher the number of pluses, the greater the protection against UVA rays. Currently, the highest standard of PA protection in the industry is PA++++.



Results from Kao Singapore’s Benchmark Survey shows that the top reason why women prefer not to apply a sunscreen is the sticky, greasy feeling on skin that most sunscreens tend to leave behind.

This is where the light, watery texture of Bioré’s Aqua Rich Watery Gel stands out! Similar to the Aqua Rich Watery Essence, it is formulated with Bioré’s unique Aqua Rich technology to give it a light and watery texture when applied onto skin.

Product Benefits
• Superior double UV block with enhanced SPF50+/PA++++
• Maximum protection against harmful UVA and UVB rays from the sun
• Retains its light and watery texture that allows smooth application without a sticky feel
• Infused with hyaluronic acid & citrus extract to keep skin hydrated and fresh
• Suitable for application on face and body

Bioré Aqua Rich Watery Gel can brightens and whitens skin, for a glowing appearance! For girls who do makeup, you will be glad to know that this is suitable for use as a make-up base too!! How awesome!!!


The Aqua Rich Watery Gel contains the breakthrough Aqua Micro Capsule a water capsule which breaks upon application on skin to release the UV protection agent while giving skin a cool and refreshed feeling.

Unlike most sunscreens that have a higher SPF value which tends to compromise on the product texture, Bioré’s Aqua Rich Watery series retains its lightweight feel and at the same time provide maximum UV protection.

The Aqua Rich Watery Gel is also infused with hyaluronic acid and citrus extract to keep skin hydrated and healthy.

The new Bioré Aqua Rich Watery Gel retails at SGD18.90 for a 90ml bottle. Available at all leading pharmacies, super & hyper markets, departmental stores, beauty stores and selected minimarts.

The full range of Bioré’s UV Series enhanced with the PA++++ rating (previously PA+++) are:

  • Bioré Aqua Rich Watery Essence SPF50+/PA++++
  • Bioré Whitening Cream SPF50+/PA++++
  • Bioré Perfect Face Milk SPF50+/PA++++
  • Bioré Perfect Milk SPF50+/PA++++
  • Bioré Bright Face Milk SPF50+/PA++++

I’m pretty excited now and can’t wait to see result! Lightened pigmentation, less wrinkles!! Woohooo! But first thing first.. I always get lost in Orchard Central! Hence I need to locate Skin Shape Club first!

Actually, it wasn’t that bad… Just take the lift, turn left. go straight..

IMG_6501 IMG_6502 And ta-daaaa… See it at the far end??

IMG_6503It’s at a very cosy corner hence good for customer who like privacy!

If you drive, even better! Carpark lift is just next to it!

IMG_6504 IMG_6505 IMG_6508 IMG_6515

I booked my appointment on a weekday evening so that I can go relax after work!!

IMG_6510 IMG_6511

While waiting for my beauty consultant, I have no time to waste.. there are products on display where I can check it out!

FYI, these essence are actually their own brand/product..!

IMG_6509IMG_6506 IMG_6513

Audrey greeted me at the entrance and as there was another customer, I had to wait a while before she can attend to me (that’s why I have some waiting time to spare! LOL~).

Anyway, that’s beside the point. Shortly after, Audrey brought me to the consultation room to fill in a form and started my consultation!


Audrey briefed me through the treatment process and showed me some before & after pictures of customers with acnes/pigment/wrinkle problems.. I’m impressed with how they actually treat acne problem in such short time..!

Through our conversation (and Audrey’s observation), she knows that I don’t sleep early (not that late too actually) and she told me that this treatment can actually lightened my dark eye circle.. Though dark eye circle wasn’t my main concern but it’s one of the problem I have too.. So out of curiosity, I probed some questions but struck me most is….

Me: “How many treatment would it takes to see result (lightened dark eye circle)?”

Her: “Immediate”

Me: O_O REALLY?! *secretly feeling happy*


IMG_6516 IMG_6517

Although the Club is small but I think they played well with the space. After the consultation, I was asked to stand on this machine u see in the above image.

It’s a body analyzer. It measure your weight, body fat, body age, this machine is a monster!! >_<!!

SEE!!.. I’m actually a old woman in a young body!! (T_T) (machine printed copy wasn’t given to me but glad we have this lil profile card!)


So here’s my treatment room. Pretty spacious. Understand from Audrey that this is usually the room they use for any body treatment (Yes, they do slimming too! But too bad, I’m not sponsored for that!)

I didn’t really change into anything special because there only a brown robe and feels funny to take off everything and wear a robe for facial. LOL!



Now that I’m lying on the bed (warmer bed!!) I’m pretty nervous!! What machine would they be using for the Light & Heat Energy treatment!!! *shivers*

IMG_6843  IMG_6844 IMG_6845

Looks like a harmless thingy ya??

We started with a double cleanse then toner was applied on my face before we start using the LHE machine.

We started the treatment around my eye areas first (remember i have dark eye circle??) and despite several reminder about how BRIGHT it will be when the treatment (light pulse) starts, I still got a shock almost every time!! LOL!! It’s like somebody putting a touch light on your eyes and suddenly turn it on and off quickly twice – a super bright touch light that is… As for the heat part, it’s not scorching hot but you can still feel the pinch of heat on your face. Bearable for me.


(See that light!?!!)

I didn’t have to worry about anything during the treatment because The beautician here will be constantly telling me what we’re going through and prepare for next step.
Very soon, we’re at the last part of the LHE treatment whereby a consecutive 10 shots of light will be shot around your face. THIS IS BRIGHT TOO! When I open my eyes, all I can see is stars~ LOL..But just for the few seconds la..

AftER that will be serum and clay mask time – more like NAP TIME!! i napped for about 15-20 mins and the beautician is back to washed off my mask and applied skincare for me and she left me to get change.

Side note: I upgrade my session to SKIN SHAPER PLUS on my 2nd visit and I’m loving it!! The massage was so heavenly!!

NOW is best time to check out the result!! I quickly pull out the mirror and check out my skin! I’m speechless..

Let me show youuuu..


Image on the left is before and on the right is obviously after! I took my own picture so pardon those unglam double chin and so not professional angle!!! (LOL!!)

I can see that not only my dark eye circle has lightened, my freckles seems to have lightened too in just one session! My overall complexion has brighten quite a bit and I look more radiance!!

I GLOW~! I have to hashtag #NOFILTER!!!

After 3 days, my skin still feels smooth! Applying makeup was easy and my makeup stays longer!

Skin Shaper Facial is a gentle yet result-oriented treatment that incorporate FDA-approved LHE technology into its treatment procedure. It is suitable for most skin types and skin tone. Those with very dark skin will have to be consulted before proceeding with treatment so that they can adjust the treatment procedures and settings according to your skin conditions / tone for safe and best results.

The possibility of complications is minimal. Slight redness may be observed immediately after treatment due to the dermal layer being warm up but this only lasts for a few hours. You can continue with your daily routine immediately after treatment.

After treatment, it is recommended to avoid direct sun exposure and oily/alcohol based products for 48hours. Remember always to apply moisturizer and sunblock regularly..

Skin Shaper Facial is priced at $120 for 30mins. New customer can enjoy 4 sessions at trial price of $96 ($24/session).

Skin Shaper Plus Facial is priced at $160 for 60mins. New customer can enjoy 4 sessions at trial price of $128 ($32/session). Skin Shaper Plus include exfoliation to remove dead skin cells and serum-infused facial massage for better penetration and enhance treatment results!

I highly recommend you to try Skin Shaper Plus facial if you have time! Else Skin Shaper Facial works fine too!

The Skin Shaper Facial is definitely a quick fix for ladies who are always on the go! 30 mins to regain beauty! What more can you ask for!? Drop by during lunch or break, you don’t even have to worry about going back to office empty stomach!

Check out their member’s lounge!!

*pulling curtain*

IMG_6855 IMG_6858Not bad right!!? It’s a very cozy corner plus they have drink and lil snacks for u too!

However I think the main snacks that they serve is good enough!!

IMG_6850 IMG_6851
(Mommy say cannot waste food!… Plus they were so yummy!)


This is a very good concept and with the awesome facial I believe you will like it too!!

Palmer’s White & Even – Dark Spot Corrector

If you are reading this post…. Congrats!! It’s July already.. We’ve made it to MID-YEAR!!! However, today’s post has nothing to do with mid-year..

Today I’m sharing with you a products from Palmer’s White & Even range..!

Many of you must be so familiar with Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula now since this is not the first time I’m reviewing their product.

IMG_6248 IMG_6259

In this post I will be reviewing the Dark Spot Corrector.

To those who have been reading my post faithfully, it’s not hard to tell that my soft spots are anything that can lighted pigmentation/spots and moisturizing!! That’s why I took up this product review!


So what’s so special about Palmer’s Dark Spot Corrector? It combat the #1 Sign of Ageing!!

Recent studies show that above wrinkles or loss of firmness, discoloration is the #1 perceivable sign of aging amongst women. Most even skin tone received significantly higher ratings for attractiveness and health, and were judged to be younger in age. Products that address discoloration are in high demand amongst women of all ages looking to have more even, younger-looking skin!!

What causes hyperpigmentation?

• Discoloration, or hyperpigmentation can be caused many factors.

• Most common is damage caused from UV exposure becoming worse with age.

• Other factors can be acne scarring, severe dryness,

• Or hormonal changes from pregnancy, birth control pills, or hormone replacement therapy

Don’t assume pigmentation will only appear on your face! Any part of your body that are exposed to the sun has risk of getting pigmentation sue to sun damage!

Types of Hyperpigmentation:

• Age spots • Freckles • Melasma • Mask of pregnancy • Sun spots

Now you know about hyperpigmentation.. Let’s check out the product!

IMG_6250 IMG_6251

Palmer’s White & Even range has unique skin tone correcting formulations and they are formulated with an advanced blend of potent yet gentle ingredients that reduce hyper-pigmentation! Palmer’s product and appropriate for all skin types and they are also affordable products that really work! Most importantly, they are free of parabens, phthalates, sulphates, harsh Dyes, synthetics dyes and fragrances!!

IMG_6252 IMG_6253

When product used daily, the advanced blend of ingredients in Palmer’s Eventone products, works in two ways:

• Lightens surface skin cells producing more uniform skin tone within 3-5 days

• Acts on the deeper skin layers to inhibit over-production of melanin. Even skin tone develops as skin cells rise to the surface. 4-6 weeks, depending on age, health, and exposure to sun.

Now my thoughts? I like how it brightens my complexion after applying it. It has this mild shimmers that cover/lighten the spots (lightly) yet doesn’t make u look white as ghost. It’s neither oily nor too heavy for my skin too. The only flaw I could pick out is probably.. I need more patience to see more visible result!

Note: Don’t forget your sunblock even if you have this product! As we are constantly/always under UV, UV protection is very important step that we shouldn’t skip! Prevention is better than cure!!

Whilst this is good, I strongly recommend you to check out my next post for Palmer’s Dark Circle Correcting Eye Treatment!! Coming up soooon! Check it out here!!

Price: 30ml for S$29.90

Where To Buy: Watsons, Guardian, BHG, Robinsons, John Little, Essentials Pharmacy, Nishino Pharmacy, all leading pharmacies, departmental and cosmetics stores.

Essential Massage Shampoo Brush

Washing my hair is probably one of the many things I enjoy doing! Always love the nice scent left behind by shampoo and the smooth tangle free touch after conditioning!

And ever since Essential introduced the Massage Shampoo Brush in mid-Ma… Wah~ I tell you, I can just go on and on massaging my scalp!

What??? You haven’t try Essential products before?? Come let me share with you more…



Last year I did a review on new Essential range catered for combination hair user.


Yes combination hair is a hassle when selecting the right shampoo to use! You will end up compromising only one hair problem at a time. Having the best of both world was probably just a dream.

However, since 2014 Oct, I guess we had our dream come true!! The new improved Essential range brings the best of both worlds to you! With the optimum combination of Smart Cuticle Care & Sebum Cleansing Technology in the Light Finish Volumizing and Deep Cleansing Care variants, you can now achieve moisturised hair ends while maintaining a refreshed, breathable scalp!!

To make it better, for a limited time only, Essential is also giving out a massage shampoo brush with purchase of shampoo and conditioner banded pack.

essential pack

What is a “Massage Shampoo Brush”?

A massage shampoo brush is a common haircare tool in Japan and is used by the majority of Japanese women to help remove dirt and sebum more effectively from the scalp. The massaging action on the scalp also helps improve blood circulation and promote relaxation. Now you can have a scalp massage without going to the salon! Save $$ and time yet maximum enjoyment!!

IMG_4856 IMG_4857 IMG_4860 IMG_4859

The grip of the brush was pretty comfortable and it’s so easy to use!!

Now girls with manicure, this is probably your like your super hero!! No more ruined manicure while washing/massaging your scalp with your fingers!! You don’t even need to worry about damaging your scalp if massage too hard!!

IMG_4865 IMG_4864

So far, I’ve been using the Essential Light Finish Volumizing Shampoo + Conditioner for 3 days (could have used it for a longer period but some hiccups in between hence I got my package late. Still glad that it reached me eventually!!!)!!

The scent is one factor I believe every girls would love! Now my hair ends looks healthier and no more oily scalp!! My long hair are also much more manageable!! With the new massage shampoo brush, it just made washing my hair a more enjoyable process!!

IMG_4866 IMG_4862

Every day is like a hair spa day with Essential!!!

Palmer’s combine these ingredient to create a superior anti-ageing serum not yet seen in the oil category. That looks oily already but these are all good oil!

These remarkable oils together with Vitamins A and C help heal, moisturize, reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, lighten dark spots and even skin tone.

Vitamin C is a strong antioxidant, responsible for growth and repair of tissues, production of collagen. Helps brighten and even skin tone and texture.


Had tried this oil for about a week now – only use at night after you cleansed your face.

First impression of this oil? Wah.. it’s really OIL.. LOL!! (of course dummy!!) It’s dumb for me to describe it as lightweight because oil itself is very light – isn’t that’s why it floats on water? But it is really lightweight. It doesn’t gives my skin any burden. Although it did feels oily when applying, the oil was absorbed within reasonable time and skin doesn’t leave any tight nor dry feeling.

Another side note, it’s safe to use it around eye area (where most of our wrinkles are)!

I … (shy) don’t have much wrinkles to show you how much wrinkles it had reduced.. but fred not, I will be sharing this oil with my mom and will let her share her feedback after she used it for some times.
