Hey Everyone!

Apologies for my lack of updates, work and Bloom has been ultra busy lately and it’s been hard to keep up. I am however keeping to schedule on YouTube though so hope we can keep in touch more there. Today I’m happy to share with you a special delivery from Sephora that I received the other day. I can’t wait to share with you what’s inside this month’s box. The current Sephora campaign revolves around the idea of Avant Garde beauty – a celebration of high-tech smart formulations and radical gadgets.

Today I want to share with you the beauty products that I keep on my bedside table! I figured this would make a great post because I never really talk about what I use every single night before I go to bed. I keep these babies on my bedside table because I don’t want to forget to put them on and to me, they’re really lifesavers due to my now dry skin. So let’s get started!

1. The Body Shop Spa of the World Polynesian Monoi Radiance Oil

This an absolute must-have for unwinding before you sleep. I love this so much and it smells so good. The Body Shop Spa of the World range is a recently released body care range that incorporates beauty rituals from diverse parts of the world.  Whether it’s taking Kukui oil from Hawaii or clay from the Himalaya, using this body range feels really like having the entire world’s beauty rituals right in your bathroom. It’s amazing!

Today I want to talk about something that bothers a great deal of girls out there – and something that I have been pestered with probably for years now. Acne.

I’ve only recently gotten rid of the majority of my acne as you guys know from medication, but every now and then I do have a few zits which pop up. To solve these guys, I have a solution that I have been liking and it is the Acne Clear Pimple treatment cream for a number of reasons. I was first introduced to Acne Clear when shopping around in Guardian probably a year ago. However, Acne Clear contacted me to review their products recently so I thought I’d do a little post on my thoughts on it.

Can you believe it? I used to be a total online shopping addict but instead of buying new outfits, I bought tons of make-up! In fact I used to scour the web for the best make-up stores online that could ship international! What makes shopping online for beauty products better than at the counter – well it’s open 24 hrs so say hello to nights when you can’t sleep and it’s cheaper so if you can get it online, you might be able to save 10-30% on it. For me, a good beauty online store should have good international and local shipping rates, a large variety of brands, a good variety of shades available of a particular product and have sturdy packaging so there are no breakages. Also the ability to ensure something is authentic is really important too. I was just introduced to a new online beauty products retailer called BeautyFresh (www.beautyfresh.com) not too long ago and it fits my criteria very well! Let’s check it out together and see what I got!

Today I’m excited to share with you a trip I had to the Philippines a few weeks ago! Cetaphil invited me down and a few other bloggers and winners to the Philippines recently to attend a very special regional empowering and educational retreat called The Cetaphil Experience. Here, Cetaphil brought women from all over the region to learn more about skincare and confidence in an array of workshops held by dermatologists and even a life coach. As for my expectations, I expected the experience to be like any press trip I go on – filled with facts and figures – but it turned out to be an amazing bonding session with the girls I met there and more encouraging and inspiring than I could ever imagine. I can’t wait to show you more!

Today I want to share with you a BB cream that I have been madly in love with – it’s the Curel BB Cream! I have been using it for about a month now and I love how suitable it is for people with sensitive skin like me because of its great coverage and it’s technology that strengthens my skin against possible irritants. If you have sensitive skin, you’d know finding a good foundation or bb cream is a difficult task. If you have acne scars, most bb creams aren’t able to cover it up because they don’t have as good a coverage as liquid foundations. If you have dry and flaky skin, most bb creams aren’t smooth or creamy enough to look smooth over that particular area. Trust me, I’ve had problems in all those areas but finally, I really feel like there’s something that I can make my new go-to base! It’s suitable and gentle for sensitive skin because of its Ceramide Care technology that increases your skin’s resilience! Curel’s ceramide care technology effectively replenishes ceramide, an essential ingredient that sensitive skin lacks. It also boosts your skin’s natural barrier function and protects it from external irritation. This is seriously one of the best BB creams I have ever tried. Let’s take a closer look at it.
