Hey Everyone!

I am a total Aveda fan at the moment and I’m sure you have seen how their Smooth Infusion products have totally transformed my hair. Seriously, I love how their products feel so natural and they work! If you don’t know yet, the art and science of pure flower and plant essences is the core of Aveda. Its beauty products are alive with the life force of plants and Aveda goes to exceptional lengths to be respectful to the earth. Ever since a hairstylist founded Aveda in 1978, Aveda’s beauty products –haircare, skincare and aromas-have been professionally developed and clinically tested, delivering high performance products that balance beauty and well-being for each individual.

Smelling good and fresh is so important, especially in this hot and humid weather. For me, perfumes are great but they always fade on me and aren’t great solutions to smelling fresh throughout the day. Plus, you don’t just want to pile on fragrances on top of a stench – that never works because you’re not eliminating the cause of the odor.

I’ve been recently coming back into the habit of spraying on a deodorant right after a shower and it’s a practice that I really believe everyone should get into. It can be so embarrassing to smell and you have something important to rush to in the evening like a date or meeting even if you can’t help it. To always be reassured, my current favourite to do the job is the Rexona Shower Clean FRESH Anti-perspirant Deodorant. It not only eliminates odor but it controls sweat too – which something perfumes cannot do.

Today I just wanted to let you in on a new skincare range I’m trying out! As you know, I am still on the road to recovery with my acne and I need something that is great for oily & really sensitive skin like mine. I decided to try out the Curél Sebum Trouble Care skincare range because the range claims to control both skin sensitivity and sebum production. I did some research beforehand and I found out that a dual function is important because if excess sebum on the skin is not properly removed, the sebum turns into a harmful substance that irritates the skin surface and inner layers, worsening skin sensitivity overall. That’s why you need a range that does both. Another cause of sensitive skin is a lack of  ceramide which helps your skin retain moisture and strengthens the skin’s natural barrier against external irritants. Of course skin sensitivity can also be caused by diet, hormones, and a change in pH level too.

I am sure we have all heard of mainstream nail polish brands like O.P.I, Essie and China Glaze, but what about indie nail polish brands? Indie nail polish brands tend to be better for you since often they are handmade, 5 – free (meaning that they do not contain camphor, toluene, dibutyl phthalate (DBP), formaldehyde or formaldehyde resins) or 3-free and sometimes cruelty free as well. They are like secret gems in the nail polish world made by passionate and creative people! You can’t find indie nail polish brands just anywhere.

In fact, I don’t know of a place that you can in Singapore except an online store called www.beautysofly.com where I got all these nail polishes I’m going to show you today! It’s an amazing site that has a load of indie nail polish brands you should check out as well as a variety of mainstream brands too. I love the variety on there and shipping is quick and efficient! Let’s get started and explore my favourite glitter ones!

Ever since I had my hair dyed and basically damaged, I am always in need of great styling cremes to get my hair back in shape. I get loads of compliments on my hair but little does everyone know that I have to maintain it too. I even had a period of time where I had to constantly curl my hair because I didn’t want everyone to see the damage. That’s why I think the true test is when you can wear your hair naturally straight without worrying. I don’t always feel like curling my hair daily so that’s why I need cremes to help me out.

 I have been loving the Aveda Smooth Infusion styling creme which is amazing for days when you just wanna wear your hair naturally straight after blowdrying! The Aveda Smooth Infusion Naturally Straight styling creme progressively eliminates unwanted waves and fends off frizz with every use while giving strands heat protection which is a very welcome bonus. This creme actually has naturally derived plant fibers that invisibly attach to each hair strand to loosen the waves as you blowdry and help hold your straight style in place. There is also a humidity barrier of organic cassava root that helps fend off frizz. The cool thing about Aveda is that they are very into natural and eco friendly ingredients that are very healthy for your hair.

Today, I just wanted to give you a quick update about my journey with IDS clinic – it’s been a good four months already! IDS is a skin clinic that I have been regularly visiting to keep my acne issues under control and I have been really loving their professional service. You can read more about it here in my last post when I first visited. They have a very comprehensive range of products and for the first few months, they really helped to lessen the amount of acne I had. Trust me, it really was quite bad. Not only did I have small bumps, I had large cystic acne as well. It’s been a real journey and right now, it’s gotten a lot better thanks to the products. However, to be totally honest, my skin isn’t perfect just yet. My current favourite products from the range is the IDS Cleansing Gel (best make-up remover ever, if you have great skin you need to buy this anyway), IDS Scrub (very fine scrub that helps to take away dead skin cells and blackheads) as well as the IDS spot (which is a tinted acne treatment). I love the IDS C+ and Pore as well as they’ve really been effective in lessening my crazy skin. I want to update you on my detailed and full journey after my acne is fully recovered, but what I really want to talk about today is the amazing treatment I had yesterday at IDS.
