Hey Everyone!

I’m sure you’ve all heard the word “BB Cream” floating around, but in a sea of foundations, compacts and high end powders, we lose sight of what this ‘miracle’ asian sensation really is. No, it’s not a bird, toy or a plane, it’s just healthy makeup. I see BB creams everywhere,  yet I have no incentive to try it out myself so I was happy to meet up with Lorraine, brand manager of the StarAsiaGroup which distributes a very special BB brand, Skin79, at The Marmalade Pantry last Monday.

So What are BB Creams?

A BB cream is makeup designed to be good to your skin. In the most idiot-proof way, Lorraine explained that it originated from a group of German dermatologists who wanted to provide makeup for their patients after treatments with downtime, without harmful chemicals or impurities. It was basically a therapeutic moisturiser that provided lighter coverage and healing benefits. This is why it is often associated with the word “Blemish Balm” because it heals blemishes and its more a balm with coverage than a foundation. It’s much like a tinted moisturiser, amp up the coverage a bit but boost its skincare properties to the extreme. Its glowy, radiant makeup thats healthy. Sounds good to me!

Hey Everyone!

This is the last post I’m doing in Singapore before I head back to Melbourne. It was awesome meeting people at the Physiogel bloggers party and Sarahand Pearlin at Nandos, hopefully I can meet more of you at the end of November!

Just like Sara, I was invited to try out a treatment at Healthtrends Clinic at Ngee Ann City. Out of the three options given to us in the email, I was ready to take on an Acne Scar Reduction not only because I had a few scars from a serious bout of acne at the beginning of the year but I think my asia-ness thought that the $1200 price-tag was an opportunity not to be missed.

I still spy a little white overcast, but without the flash it totally matches my skin. It probably is my horrible camera though (thanks for the heads up Sarah love!) Flawless though :)

Hello!

This is a bit overdue on my terms but the first week I was back, I had a nice lunch with Virginia who distributes Leaders Clinic products to Singapore at Cedele (one of my favourite places to eat – Chicken and Wild Mushroom Soup to die for and their Mushroom and Feta Tart). She thought I might be interested in trying a few of their products out to give my own opinion about their masks and things so here’s your informational haul :)

About Leaders Clinic:

Leaders Clinic Clinie is a very popular skincare company in Korea, formed by a group of well-known Korean dermatologists who created their own mark in the skincare company scene. In fact, they’re so popular that they average about 500,000 masks sold monthly and are undoubtedly the hottest clinical brand in Korea. Not only Korea either – it’s loved in Japan, China and Hong Kong and I managed to snap a picture yesterday when I was in Hong Kong at Mannings (Guardian):

Hello!

I was kindly contacted by Pearlin http://www.reviewantiaging.com to attend a facial sponsored by Touche Elite at the Orchard Hotel Shopping Arcade! Read on to see how you can get this $428 facial for only $68 – for Singapore Only! This is NOT a contest, the discount is a giveaway, anyone who mentions the password will get the promotion, you don’t even have to win! Read on!

WARNING: This post is not for the faint hearted. Think excessive stress, chocolate and a post-exam face and that’s what you get. You might think, on Youtube, she looks flawless but babe it’s the camera. Here, the lights don’t lie – unfortunately. I guess I could have very well not have taken pictures of my naked face, but that would defeat the purpose of an informative post.

Hello!

Beauty FYI: Elizabeth Arden 100th Anniversary Promotions – 9th – 15th July

Elizabeth Arden is currently having their 100th Anniversary Limited Edition Sets currently selling like hotcakes at counters from the 9th to 15th of July and I must say these babies are adorable. I met up with Elizabeth Wan, part of the marketing team at Elizabeth Arden for lunch at the Blue Mist Cafe and was able to get a glimpse of the upcoming promotions at the office, which was beautiful by the way.

She’s trying to take out the lip protectant, next to her is one of the new fragrances coming out and the red door lipstick next to the box. I have to say that the lipstick is probably one of the most interesting limited edition items. It’s a beautiful sparkly hollywood red lipstick only going for $19.90 each, but apparently its sold out currently as the promotions started yesterday!
