Hey Everyone!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I have to be honest with you, my skin is pretty bad right now. Acne has always been an enemy to me and mine’s not a result of improper cleansing, it’s a matter of hormones which kind of makes things worse. I was born with PCOS which doesn’t really do much except that there’s always a little bit of hormonal imbalance. I took a huge blood test back in Australia and they found out that I had it.  I could have bouts of great skin (where I take all my pictures etc) but the next day I could be blooming with acne buds. It’s something that has been bugging me my entire life and I don’t know when it’s going to stop. Products do work for a series of days and then stop —–> Read More

I have been a long time fan of LUSH fresh face masks. I remember in Uni, I used to buy one a week and my favourites were probably brazened honey, love lettuce and catastrophe cosmetic! LUSH Singapore invited me down for a special event to see how one of their fresh face masks were made and I have to say, it’s exciting stuff! LUSH fresh face masks are made of natural ingredients and actually have to be stored in the fridge! I didn’t know how natural they were until I saw how they were made! So let’s begin!

Today I want to share with you my experience during my third visit at Kerring Skin which is located at 60 Orchard Road, #07-07A International Building. They are a fab facial place that I feel is very comfortable and comforting. During my third visit, I wanted to try something new so they let me try the Dr. Renaud Rosa 3 range that includes probably my favourite facial mask from them – the Rosa 3 mask which smells like literally a bouquet of roses!

My skin has been really awful lately. I know it doesn’t look like it but my camera has been good to me and has decided that it shouldn’t pick up every single flaw. The month of feb has been really stressful for me. I’m working everyday and on the weekends and my sleep is postponed till the am.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I need like space to breathe sometimes but I’m pretty sure it’s just me and my timely hormonal breakouts. With my skin lacking…a lot of things..I decided to take a trip to Kering Skin at International Building in Orchard again to see what they could do! Sometimes no matter how many products you wanna pile —–> Read More

To be honest, this review of my beloved SK-II Facial Treatment Essence has been a long time coming. I’ve been using the SK-II Facial Treatment Essence for about a year and a half, but I don’t think I’ve ever really done a full review on it before. Yet, it’s been in my past and current favourites as one of my must-have skincare products. Today, I thought I would get on that. I love this stuff so much and have been using it a lot and have already gone through two bottles! I’ve stocked up in my drawers as well because seriously girls, it’s really worth the hype. I’ve also done a cool little banana experiment that —–> Read More

Today I’m going to be doing a more in-depth review of The Body Shop Nutriganics Drops of Youth Concentrate! I did a haul post earlier and a few first impressions that you can see right here. The Body Shop claims that after five days, you’re supposed to see results so here I am back again to give you my thoughts about this interesting serum. By the way, I had an amazing time meeting some of you at The Body Shop event for those who entered my giveaway! But, more on that later.

If you’re unfamiliar with this concentrate, The Body Shop Drops of Youth is fast becoming a popular skincare must-have. A lot of my friends have been using it and a few mums swear by it too. It’s a —–> Read More

Guess what I just got! It’s The Body Shop Nutriganics Drops of Youth! I’ve seen this everywhere recently and I’ve been wanting to review it and try it just to see what all the hype is about. So when The Body Shop sent one over, I was more than happy to put it to the test. I thought I might first do a haul post of this product simply because it’s quite special and then I will do an in-depth review of it in a later post when I’ve come up with a verdict! By the way, there’s also an amazing GIVEAWAY that you can read about at the end of this post where you can win a $80 goodie bag including a —–> Read More

Sometimes getting a facial for me is simply like getting a massage. They claim all sorts of magical things and put all sorts of creams and masks on you that make you feel totally refreshed but to be honest, don’t really heal your skin for the long term. I’ve been going to a new facial place more often now called Kering Skin and for once, I have to say that they’re actually doing wonders for my dull, tired and spotty complexion. I really do like this place and can’t wait to share more with you how special and unique they are and my future sessions with them!

It’s always fun to see your videos grow from at home to being done professionally! So when Clozette contacted me to see if I wanted to make a few videos that represented me and be featured as an SK-II Blogger Ambassador, I was more than thrilled! I managed to film three videos with them:

(1)   Celebrity Inspired Look: Scarlett Johansson
(2)  Neckline Cheat Sheet: Best Accessories To Match Different Necklines
(3)  Bride-To-Be Special: Skincare, Hair & Makeup!

It was really fun to film these videos not only because the camera crew totally beat my at home set-up, but because I really do believe in SK-II products. I often get asked how I make my skin glow like it does and to be honest, it’s totally SK-II so I was very pleased to be one of their blogger ambassadors on —–> Read More

SK-II is probably my all time favourite skincare line right now. I love the stuff. Not only are they highly raved about in Singapore (and probably everywhere else on the planet), I love their products because they work. You’ll see results right there after using it just for a week or two!

I also have some great and exciting news!! I’m happy to share with you all that I have been appointed a blogger ambassador for SK-II on Clozette!

I don’t know if you saw sneek peeks on Instagram (follow me @roseannetangrs), but I’ve been filming a series of 3 really fun videos with them. A hint is that I’ll be doing make-up on —–> Read More

I’ve been plagued by oily skin ever since I can remember. Midday, you’d probably notice my nose becoming a shiny discoball and not to mention my t-zone. It’s hard to change what you’ve been born with, but I reckon you sure can help it along. In fact, research has proven that our skin tends to produce more oil because it’s actually dehydrated! That’s why ever since, I always make sure my skin has a hydrating product to quench its thirst day and night. The new L’Oreal Hydra Fresh Skincare range is something that I’ve been trying out recently and I really like it. Here’s a little review and tutorial! The Hydra Fresh range includes four stars the show – —–> Read More

There are so many face masks on the market right now and I understand that it’s pretty hard to find a good one that works. Lots of them have the same ingredients, claim the same things but I still wonder if they’re just good for teenage sleepovers. Always on the hunt, I decided to try out one that’s a little different from the conventional. We’ve all heard of sheet masks, clay masks and even gel sheet masks but have you heard of one that’s totally made of jelly? Today I’m going to be reviewing and showing you how to apply the éPure Membranous Jelly Masque that has rave reviews on the net!

We all know that being a bride to be can be stressful. You’ve got to plan everything – down to what color all the flowers are gonna be, what your dress will be like, not to mention your wedding cake and even down to the chairs and tables. I’m not getting married yet but I can imagine what it would be like and to be honest, I’m not sure if I can stop myself into turning into a classic bridezilla! I’ve been working on an exciting project with SK-II to reach out to brides all over Singapore. Part of the project is this video that we made, check it out here!

Meet Renee, a great friend and a crazy successful beauty blogger – the woman behind beautyfool.com. I first met her over a dinner at Cedele which happened to be both a favourite at that time and it’s been more than a year! It’s so cool to see that we’ve both grown to where we are now – from getting into newspapers, magazines, and working with companies. This journey has been crazy fun and it’s great to have someone there to talk to who understands what it’s like! Now, Renee has her very own bodycare brand and it’s Singapore’s First Beauty Blogger & Brand Collaboration. I think this is amazing and I’m super proud of —–> Read More

I know it doesn’t look like it but I’ve actually been battling acne for a long time. My skin has attitude and breaks out in different periods of time for what seems like no absolute reason. It can have periods of peace and then have periods of war and you can see the war coming with small tiny bumps spread across my face. Thankfully, it has prepared me for battle so here I am sharing some tips to help keep your skin clearer including what works for me and what doesn’t.

I’ve been getting a lot of compliments on my skin lately (thank you) and I’ve pretty much fallen in love with the L’Occitane Immortelle range. It has really added a beautiful glow to my complexion so I thought it was only necessary to share it with you all.

The idea behind Immortelle is it’s special main ingredient – a flower from Corsica, France named Immortelle. Even when the flower dies, it still remains as vivid as when it was alive. Over ten years ago, L’Occitane revealed and patented the anti-ageing, microcirculation, collagen production and protection against free radical powers of this flower and it has been praised by —–> Read More

Finally, it is time to review my Cetaphil buddies! I’ve used them both to the last drop so I thought I would do a review of both the much talked about Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser and the UVA/UVB Defense Sunscreen.

1. Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser 

Unlike most cleansers on the market, Cetaphil is a much trusted global brand that is both fragrance and soap free making them awesome for people with sensitive skin. Because it’s approved dermatologists, it’s helped many people, even my friends with acne and my relatives with a few skin conditions.

Let’s first start with the famous Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser. This cleanser —–> Read More

Hey Everyone,

I think I’ve probably been hearing about SK-II Facial Treatment Essence ever since I was 10 years old. Everyone knows this baby from countless ads about it being a miracle water and the best product for achieving crystal clear skin. The story goes that the secret ingredient to SK-II’s success, Pitera, was discovered when a scientist noticed in the 70s that the women who worked at a Sake brewery had soft and youthful hands. Years later, they isolated that main nutrient rich ingredient as Pitera and have used this as the star of the show for the majority of SK-II —–> Read More

Fancl to me has always been one of those brands I’ve wanted to try  for so long, but never got around to doing it. From the super bright store lights, to the beautiful sales assistants dressed to the T, I’ve always been curious at what they had to offer. I mean c’mon, Japanese beauty products belong to a whole new world and I happen to be a fan of the whole thing. Not only do they offer skincare, they also offer supplements to just about any womanly ailment out there, whether it’s fiber  to slimming to hormones for skin clarity. I find that pretty cool.

But if you’re unfamiliar with Fancl, Fancl is a very popular Japanese brand here in —–> Read More

There’s just something about clay masks that makes me swoon. It might be the fact that I get to play the part of the Wicked Witch and jump out of doors scaring the daylights out of people (not that I do) or that remarkably clean feeling after you wash it off. In fact, if I were to choose between sheet masks and organic clay masks, I’d probably be caught raising my hand to that ooey gooey goodness in a jar. Today, I’ll be talking about my hands down favourite clay mask by far – the Cellilux Deep Sea Glacial Mineral Gel including my thoughts, a little tutorial, before and after pictures and a giveaway of a tub to call your own.

Everyone loves a good face mask especially after a long day, I know I do. I’ve already told you what my favorite face masks were in this post and I’m here to tell you today that they’ve been re-named and re-formulated to Beauty Clinic I.P.I Lightmax Facemasks! You can get them at guardian stores in Singapore and I thought since I haven’t done a full review on them, that I probably should.

What it’s supposed to do:

The Beauty Clinic I.P.I Lightmax face masks have stable vitamin C-AA2G, arbutin (known for whitening) and mulberry bark extract. We should all know that whitening doesn’t mean getting two shades lighter but it —–> Read More

Hey Everyone,

Like a cat and it’s scratch post, my skin loves a good scrub. And that is probably the weirdest analogy you’ve heard all day. Apologies. I’ve wanted to try Ocean Salt for a while now. The chunks of sea salt and the smell of a mini margarita in a pot always appealed to me. I’ve even probably had to stop myself from eating it potentially. Enough words said though, I love it, and I use it often in my morning routine to give my skin a good clean. Here’s a review of the LUSH Ocean Salt Facial Scrub!


Housed in it’s iconic black Lush tub, the Ocean Salt Facial Scrub boasts the following:

Hey Everyone!

Exams are just around the corner and not only is it time to bring out the tim tams from the kitchen closet, highlighters and different colored pens out, but it’s also time to take special care of your skin. The minimal amount of sleep, the less than honorable diet of comfort food and the stress can make zits pop up faster than you can eliminate them. I always make sure I have face masks ready to brighten up the skin so I can fake a few hours of sleep when I’m out and about.

A few weeks ago, I did a giveaway on my facebook page about one of my all time favorite masks – the Leader’s Clinic Clinie I.P.L Whitelux Masks. A few days later, Cossy.com.sg asked if I would like to try out the —–> Read More

LUSH will always have a soft spot for me. I love walking into their stores and being greeted by what I call cakes of multicolored soaps and those classic black tubs that face masks, moisturisers and cleansers call home. In fact, I can pretty much tell if a LUSH store is just around the corner just by sniffing the air, it has a classic smell and  I love it. Today I’ll be doing a review of one of their best -sellers – the Angels on Bare Skin Cleanser. Just like any standard review, I’ll be talking about the packaging, the product, it’s claims and applying it so you can see the before and after effects of its application. Did —–> Read More

 

Hey Everyone!

I have to say that one of the best feelings in this world besides laying on your bed after a long day is whipping on a nice, cold face mask. To add to that, I’ve been getting a lot of requests lately on what I’ve been doing for my skin. I’m blushing but most of you have loved how my skin has looked in my past few tutorials so I thought I might do a review on what I’ve been using lately, a very special sheet mask with not one step, but two.

Hey Everyone,

Oddly enough, I’ve been really into taking care of my skin these days. Normally, I’d remove my makeup, maybe slap on a scrub or cleanser and call it a day. These days, I’m slowly venturing into nicer exfoliants and even serums. When I saw the Philosophy Microdelivery exfoliating wash was  on sale on the Urban Outfitters website, I had to grab it. Applauded everywhere, this baby was a purchase I simply couldn’t resist.

The Philosophy Microdelivery Exfoliating was comes in a medium sized bottle and claims the following:

1. Exfoliating facial cleanser that provies immediate resurfacing benefits

Hey Everyone,

This could be the most disgusting post that I’ve ever made. That’s because it showcases my two zits. I know, that’s gross Roseanne but trust me, it’s totally relevant to this review. Today I’ll be reviewing a much talked about acne treatment – it’s the Mario Badescu Drying Lotion. In this review, I’ll be taking to new freshly baked zits and I’ll be applying them for two nights. Any longer than that anyway you’d think the medication wasn’t very affective I reckon right? My sincere apologies in advance for the images to come.

I apologize for the lack of blogging lately. I’ve been totally swamped by good old university work – mouth covered in chocolate and eye-bags the size of god knows what. Despite that, I’ve been on Lush’s tail to try every face mask they have. I’ve reviewed the Lush Brazened Honey Face Mask, and I’m here yet again to do another one. This time it’s the Catstrophe Cosmetic.

If you love blueberries and love them enough that you want to look like Willy Wonka’s Violet Beuraguard when she impulsively chews some gum that eventually turns her into a blueberry, then I’m very pleased to say that this is for you. Although the feeling will be —–> Read More

Sunscreen should be part of your everyday routine. Applied before your make-up and moisturiser, sunscreens should be in direct contact with the skin. Why? It prevents you from all sorts of ailments including pre-mature aging and even skin cancer.

Hey Everyone!

Here’s a great mask that I used tons when I had exams last semester and one that I’ve recently re-discovered again. As you know, LUSH has a variety of masks available that treat various ailments like acne and dry skin but I tend to look for masks that do a bit of detox work after full week with makeup on. During that time I was in the middle of studying for exams. Think lots of junk food and late nights with my regular make-up routines on and in full swing. The Lush sales assistant suggested I use the Brazened Honey face mask to detoxify and exfoliate the damage I was causing from the late nights and possibly clogged —–> Read More

A while back I was sponsored by Dermalogica to do a review of their new Clean Start Line. This will be sort of a continuation post, if you need any more information about each product, then click here for my haul. A more indepth explanation of what each product is supposed to do will be listed there. Here, it’s more about what it did.

Overall, I’m one happy reviewer. I loved the line for it’s fresh and clean feel and the packaging while their fruity scents made my morning and night routine enjoyable. The effectiveness of each product was pretty good. I used this line during exams and with an average of about 4-5 hours of sleep, I should have —–> Read More

I have to stay that reviewing face masks are a challenge. You can’t use them everyday, you put them on once and you can’t really see the difference at times but I’m going to do my best for you. Here’s a review of the Leader’s Clinic Masks which were sponsored to me way back and I didn’t find the time to do until now. Because of the amount of masks given to me, I think doing them slowly in parts, highlighting three at a time is best. You can get these masks at Guardian and they make great stress-relievers when you put them all in the fridge first and whip em out when you need a break.

Hey Everyone,

So a month ago, I was sponsored by The Beauty Club to do a review on the Biotherm Aquasource range meaning that no, I did not purchase these products :) It was really either this or the Clinique 3 step skincare system because a few of my friends used/still use Biotherm and they said that the range really cleared up their acne. And seeing that I wasn’t doing well the harsh way by using proactiv, why not the kinder approach? That was probably my number one desire and I have used this range for over a month, so here are the three stars of the show:
