New products I’ve added to my current skincare:

Skin Elixir 
DERMAGOLD Star Product
Harper's Bazaar Beauty Awards 2015: Best Facial Serum - Best Anti-oxidant Serum

This is a multi-purpose skin nutrient powerhouse that surpasses an ordinary moisturizer. Besides regenerating and strengthening skin, it also heals and restores free radical damage leaving the skin beautiful, glowing and radiant! This product is of an extremely lightweight viscosity which is quickly absorbed and deeply penetrates skin, allowing it to be used in tandem with other products for optimal results.

Anti-aging – decrease in wrinkles and fine lines
Acne control – sebum control and scar treatments
Moisture boosting – particularly for dry and damaged skin
Natural skin healing and regeneration
Protection against harmful UV rays

Interesting facts about Seabuckthorn
1. Seabuckthorn has 15x more vitamin C than an orange
2. Seabuckthorn is also high in vitamin A and E, which benefits the skin.
3. It is the 3rd highest source of vitamin E in the plant world.
4. It is rich in Omega 3, which helps prevent heart disease and stroke, Omega 6, Omega 9 and Omega 7.

Hydra Recovery Gel 
NUYOU Suncare Awards 2015: After Suncare (Face)
 SHAPE Suncare Awards: Aftersun Care For Face (Most Moisturising)

Dermagold Hydra Recovery Gel is an intense hydration and soothing gel. Hydrates and calms dry, inflamed, scalded or sunburnt skin. Also suitable for soothing the face after aesthetic procedures.
I usually use this once a day at night as a night repair mask. 

Purifying Scrub 
Harper's Bazaar Beauty Awards 2015: Most Gentle Scrub

Dermagold Purifying Scrub is a rich exfoliating butter that deep cleanses the skin giving it a
smooth and bright appearance. Use once a week along with their Brightening Revitalizer for best results! 

Other products I use: 
Miracle C+, Brightening Revitalizer, HA Booster, Premier BB Sunshield
and if you’re looking for a good gentle cleanser their Delicate Skin Cleansing Mousse is great too :)

Hair on fleek feat. Hairparatus
Thursday, January 21, 2016.

When it comes to styling my hair, 
I’ll always opt for the fastest, easiest and most efficient way to get it styled. 

I was excited to try out the Repit All in One Brush Iron sent to me by Hairparatus
as it’s a 5 in 1 hair styling tool and I’ve heard a lot about it! 

Watch to find out how I usually style my hair with this tool: 

Besides the C-curl, the Repit All in One Brush Iron can also achieve the S-curl.
 Plus, it can straighten your hair too as it can be opened up as a straightener!
It also has 4 different heat settings so you can choose the setting that best suits your hair. 
It’s a ceramic brush therefore it protects your hair from heat damage.

This brush is really popular in Korea and it’s made there.
It’s the secret how Korean girls achieve their super smooth and flawless locks!

Sun-kissed with EHeart
Saturday, January 16, 2016.

So for my latest getaway I brought along a few pieces from @eheart_sg

Originating from Taiwan, the E-Heart brand was founded by actress and model Liu Yi Hsin.

Established in 2011, E-Heart products are 100% made in Taiwan. The brand has been awarded the prestigious MIT mark, ensuring the highest quality controls. 

Non-wired push-up bra U-back design in white
What I like about these sports bras are their simple design, support and material. 
They are made of Cool Touch Fabric Technology
which aids in moisture transport, moisture absorption and moisture drying.
It has anti-bacterial properties which kills door along with infection-causing bacteria & fungi!

Non-wired push-up bra X-back design in black
They have various designs and colours for you to chose from. 

and a bonus of their bras is that they give your cleavage a little boost ;) 

 Camisole with built in bra in grey
would be one of my favourites as it is very fitting and flattering
and the best part is that I can actually go braless ;D 
Sometimes wearing a bra daily can be a pain
so an alternative braless option is always a good idea. 

Loving the cross back design
which caused me to have a serious 'X' tanline
because I didn't spam enough sunscreen and went motorbiking for a good half of the day. 
At least my tanline kinda looks cool in my opinion 

Bloom concept is the authorized distributor for E-heart in Singapore, and all our stocks are shipped directly from Taiwan, 100%
genuine guarantee.

♡ Current Favourites ♡ Dec/Jan
Thursday, January 14, 2016.


Products that I've been really loving 
and I think you would love them too! 

1) Evening Primrose Oil 
Evening primrose oil is the oil from the seed of the evening primrose plant.
Evening primrose oil is used for skin disorders such as eczema, psoriasis, and acne.
Women also use evening primrose oil for premenstrual syndrome (PMS), breast pain, endometriosis, and symptoms of menopause such as hot flashes.

2) Raw Organic Honey 
Raw honey is a concentrated source of natural goodness. Benefits include: 
• A rich taste 
• High nutritional benefits 
• Promotes the growth of good bacteria in the intestine
 • Soothes and heals skin wounds 
• Blocks free radicals 
• Aids sleep
 • Counters pollen allergies
• Reduces homocysteine levels to maintain a healthy heart

 Best of all, honey does not need special storage or refrigeration
 – use it by the spoonful straight from the jar.

For centuries, people have been using honey masks as a treatment for acne and for curing other marks, scars, spots, and blemishes.
Using honey masks for acne treatment is a very popular home remedy and if you are serious about treating your acne in a more natural, harmless way.

Honey Mask: Honey alone can be used as a mask and is effective in curing acne by cleansing your pores and not letting microbes grow, due to its antimicrobial properties. Additionally, the waxy part of honey helps keep the skin soft, smooth and glowing. 

Ingredients: Nothing but honey.
Quantity: As per requirement.
 Preparation: None 
Application: Simply spread a layer on your face.

5) Lashes

6) Mario Badescu Skincare
- Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs and Rosewater 
- Special Healing Powder

( I realised I bought much more Mario Badescu Products than this so they might just deserve a whole new separate video feature hah!

Adding Color with Salondechoix
Thursday, January 7, 2016.

My hair grew out of control during the 4 months being away in America 
So when I came back, I knew one of the first things on my list that I had to do
was to visit Salondechoix! 

I was getting bored of brown hair so
I decided to go green!  

I did an ombre green on the outer layer of my hair

Dark green achieved

Watch to find our first hand experience with SANA Cosmetics Singapore

Featuring my special guests/friends/‘sisters’
to test out these ‘eye-opening’ products with me. 
They always say, the more the merrier isn’t it :D

We really had fun filming this video together
and I must say my friends are very qualified to be makeup testers.
Because no joke, the amount of makeup they have is insane.
And they will be the ones to go to if you have any makeup product enquiry.
They will always be the ones telling me, which product rocks and which product doesn’t. 
So I figured out it would be great to let them try out these Japanese makeup products!  

Products we tried:
1) SANA Super Quick Melty Gel Eyeliner
Available in Black & Dark Brown 
(U.P $22.90) 

2) SANA Newborn W Eyeliner EX

(U.P $24.90) 

3) SANA Maikohan Intense Black Liquid Eyeliner
(U.P $23.90) 

4) SANA EXLASH Curl Mascara
Available in Long & Volume
(U.P $24.90) 

5) SANA Powerstyle Eyelash Curler 
(U.P $17.90) 

SANA Cosmetics Singapore is a leading Japanese cosmetics brand which brings in Japanese cosmetics.

In a nutshell: 
- We genuinely enjoyed and loved the products @sanasgp sent us.
- We feel that their products are of quality and worth the money. 
- We now appreciate Japanese makeup products so much more after getting to try them out. 
- We would repurchase these products.
