Facial treatments @ Atlas Medical

8/26/14

My acne has been well maintained thanks to the acne program I've been undergoing at Atlas Medical Laser and Aesthetics! I'm super thankful how they are so patient with me because my skin is so problematic it becomes tough to keep in control. Even I run out of patience myself from trying to take care of my skin. LOL

Unfortunately, I have SO MUCH melanin in my body which seems to be producing tons at every minute.

Recently, I started to develop some pigmentation from sun exposure.. I have no idea where they came from until DR Yuen pointed them out to me. Till then... It has been bothering me quite a bit because I can't help but focus on this flaw.

Therefore, I did my usual pigmentation laser! I really trust my skin to be under the skillful hands of DR Yuen because he's always so confident and aware of what to do to solve my skin's imperfections. He makes me feel assured of the results I'm expecting.

I told DR Yuen I wanted to feel the least pain as possible and he really did made it happen for me! He used this really cold air to blow on my skin everytime he was lasering an area of my face and there was really no pain AT ALL, which is pretty damn amazing because it makes such a big difference! If you're really afraid of pain just let DR Yuen know and he'll know what to do :)

Although there wasn't any extraction this time.. My skin feels super clean. Like as if DR Yuen has zapped all my impurities away!

A few days after the treatment...

My pigmentation has lightened a bit! I hardly even notice it anymore unless I really scrutinize my face super near the mirror.

Not to forget about other treatments I’ve also done such as the usual Silk Peel (which is my favourite), the RF treatment which is done to firm and reduce stubborn fats as well as the popular vitamin C treatment which has anti-oxidant, anti-pigmentation and skin tone lightening effects.

My facials are always made so comfortable~ 


My skin's condition now after much pampering from Atlas Medical (with some tinted sunblock):




Thank you DR Yuen!
 So glad I have this trusty team at Atlas Medical to rely on for my skin's needs :)

SAMSUNG GEAR 2

8/17/14

Remember when I thought that transferring data from my Iphone to my Samsung was really troublesome? I just found out the fastest and most convenient way to transfer all my info from my Iphone! Through Samsung’s smart switch, you can easily do this in just a minute.
 
STEP 1: Back up your data from your iPhone into your iCloud. (contacts, photos, bookmarks etc)

STEP 2: Install Smart Switch Mobile from the Play Store

STEP 3: Select ‘’Import from iCloud’’ and enter you Apple ID and password

Moving on to a feature I really love… The Ultra Power Saving Mode in my Samsung GALAXY S5 LTe: 

Best innovation ever invented!!! It allows even 10% battery to last for 30 hours. AMAZING.

IMG_0051

Basically, it just turns your whole screen into greyscale mode with 6 of your chosen apps that you would want to use during Ultra Power Saving Mode, such as internet or messages! This has been super, super useful for me during times where my phone is really low on batt and I’m alone on a bus journey. And during times when I’m over at the bf’s and I forgot to bring my charger. I really felt like the battery could last me a lifetime. LOL. I love my GALAXY S5 LTE’s battery life!

Besides this amazing feature, Samsung has also invented the Fingerprint Security feature that can allow you to carry out PayPal payments and Private Mode!

GALAXY S5 LTE’s Private Mode is a secure way to protect sensitive files, images, and other data. You can choose to use the GALAXY S5 LTE’s fingerprint scanner as a means of accessing Private Mode. Meaning without your fingerprint, no one else would be able to access your private data! So cool right?

I love it… I can be so secretive without anyone knowing. Hahaha.

As for online shopaholics, you will WORSHIP the PayPal payment feature!! With this feature, you can authorize a PayPal payment simply with your fingerprint!

What could be better for lazy shoppers like us…

For the lucky Samsung users like me… There are exclusive GALAXY applications meant for Samsung users only! The GALAXY Life application is like your passport to amazing rewards and special privileges, including personalized content, exclusive offers and premium apps that are only redeemable by Samsung users!

To add on to the existing generous benefits that the GALAXY Life provides us, Samsung’s GALAXY Gifts actually provide us free, long-term subscriptions and premium services. These are some of the services we can download FOR FREE! Shiok or what?!

To supplement the awesome GALAXY S5 LTE, I was also given the Gear 2 for a even better experience with Samsung!! I'm so lucky~~~

SAM_2192

Strapped on, the Gear 2 is light and unobtrusive and accommodates most wrists without any problems. You can even change the rubber straps to your preferred color choice.
Group_Gear-2-Gear-2-Neo

For people who cannot miss any calls, this is the perfect device for you. You can receive make and receive calls & messages, and even get notifications on the go anywhere even when your phone isn't in hand! How convenient right??
Samsung has also decided to add in some fitness ability with the Gear 2 in the shape of a refined pedometer and a heart rate monitor, as well as exercise tracking so you can run, walk, hike or cycle.

IMG_2226

Also, you can even control your TV like a remote control from the watch itself with an app called WatchON™. One of my favorite features of this watch!!! This has made watching movies at home with the bf so, so comfortable for the both of us lazy pigs... Hahaha.

So thankful and glad that I have these useful devices with me now, and making my life so much more convenient in so many ways!! I'm officially part of the Samsung family!!

Daniel Wellington

I've never been more lucky to work with the extremely popular watch brand... 

Daniel Wellington!

DWIM1DWIM2

DW has, since the very first watch sold in 2011, expanded to over 30 countries and counting. The design of their watches represents a classic and timeless style inspired from the elegant preppy trend.

dw2

I've always been looking for a casual watch to wear that isn't too over the top and I was THIS close to already ordering one for myself on their website when they emailed me!!!I was totally like... Woah. Boy am I lucky or what.....

They carry a wide range of watches for both males and females!

Screen shot 2014-08-17 at PM 01.15.41

They were sporting both leather and NATO strap but I've always preferred leather so I chose myself the Classic Sheffield lady.

dw1

The slim watchface combined with the different patterns and colours of the Nato straps or any of the five elegant leather straps enables a watch for every occasion. Their wide variety of interchangeable straps creates many possibilities to complete your outfit.

Beneath the watch itself you’ll find a small instruction manual and even a spring bar removal tool. This means you can swap out straps on your own, as opposed to having to visit a jeweler or watch repair shop. 

I think I would actually get myself a NATO strap so I can swap it anytime I want!

What I love most about is how minimalist it is.... LESS IS MORE! The watch looks extremely simple but the interface is exquisite.

For my readers...

There will be a special discount code for you!!

''Shanice15''

It can be used for the purchase on their official website www.danielwellington.com. The discount code will reduce the price by 15% and is valid until the end of August.

SilkyGirl Moisture Boost Lipcolor Balm

8/14/14

What would a girl do without their lipsticks???

Loving SilkyGirl's new Moisture Boost Lipcolor Balm that's so moisturizing and well pigmented! It’s really great because it’s actually a lipcolor with the benefits of a lip balm AND the precision of a lip liner, which means you do not have to bring TWO, but only just ONE lippie with you when you head out! Think smooth unchapped lips with great color!

SAM_2993

I especially love this color because it looks so natural on me! I'm not exceptionally fair so it tends to be difficult to choose a lip color that suits me and looks natural at the same time. Most of the time I just look like as if I never applied anything or I applied too much -_- there's never an in between...

s

But this color really suits me well! not too dark or light and it glides on really smoothly too. This is rose color in 04 ☺

It feels like I only applied a layer of lip moisturizer because it’s extremely light weight so you don’t feel sticky or anything! With all the Vitamins A, C and E added into the lippie, it’s almost as if it’s a super many in one lippie for all girls to carry around when you head out for either just a short while or to even party because it protects your lips and at the same time give you that nice pop of colour!

Also, the lipcolor balm is extremely handy to carry around. I literally kept it in my pocket during my trip to USS and re-applied whenever I wanted to! Really convenient cus it's so small and easy to whip it out whenever!

SAM_3066

Plus after an entire day of being out at USS, you can see the colour is still super obvious which goes to show how long-wearing it is!

SAM_3064

As for a stronger look, of course red would be the best.

Plus all these awesome colors come with a super sleek retractable packaging! MEGA LOVE because I can look stylish while applying my lip color – no more looking unglam or anything.

SAM_2992

Using SilkyGirl's Moisture Boost Lipcolor Balm in red here and loving how the pigment can be built with mutiple applications. I only applied it 2 layers here and the color is already so obvious, plus it's super easy to apply like a lipliner! Love it~

NA201407282225220028-02-089000000


On top of that, SilkyGirl has a strict 4-No formula: No fragrance, No paraben, No carmine and No animal testing. So no need to worry for all you girls out there that love animals and want to look good at the same time because this is a great choice!

And you want to know what else is great about this product? It’s selling at an affordable price, only at S$11.90. Normally we’d find lipsticks selling for more than $20, which is pretty pricey. But SilkyGirl really provides an affordable range for us to choose from.

Last but not least, if you want to win a SilkyGirl hamper worth $100, all you have to do is to join the #boostofcolor contest! All you have to do is to post a picture of your lips on Instagram and hashtag #boostofcolor! 

Contest ends on the 7th Sept and the 3 winners will be announced via @Gushcloud_SG Instagram. Good luck girlies!!

Vaseline total moisture

7/20/14

I always have this bit of curiosity about the skin which I could never fulfil because Google sometimes just isn’t enough. You know how at times you have qualms about your skin and you try to Google but don't exactly get any proper answers? Even if you do, it might not exactly be the right information so learning and hearing from a professional himself is the best!

At the Vaseline workshop with the other fellow bloggers last Sunday!

10417535_797985123574677_8947451394009876265_n

So thankful that I got invited to Vaseline Skin Health Workshop featuring Guest Dermatologist, Dr. K.V. Ratnam from Ratnam’s Skin and Allergy Centre. I felt like I learnt so much!

SAM_2575SAM_2580

He began the talk with explaining about the 3 layers of our skin – the epidermis, dermis and hypodermis. He talked about how our epidermis (the outermost, surface layer) sheds more when it is dry or diseased and emphasised on how important it is to moisturize! Well-moisturised skin heals and regenerates the fastest! Although moisturising is a long-term commitment, it will pay off; as they always say, a little goes a long way, and one could never achieve moisturized skin in just one day. We should always moisturize because there are so many external factors that could strip our skin off its moisture everyday without us realising, such as hot baths and sleeping in an air-conditioned room.

SAM_2577

One great tip to retain the moisture in the room whilst sleeping in air-con room would be to put a bowl of water by your bedside so the air would be less dry! This has also been proven to work by many beauty gurus on YouTube! So if you have dry skin like me you could consider starting doing this :)

Another beauty tip is to moisturise 3 minutes after our baths as our pores are opened and are more susceptible to retain moisture!

SAM_2787

Another beauty tip is to moisturise 3 minutes after our baths as our pores are opened and are more susceptible to retain moisture! There were also many concerns raised about feeling stickiness under the sun after applying moisturizer so he suggested we could either dilute the moisturizer or simply just apply it the night before we sleep so that it wouldn't be so dense the next day! I tried all these tips he gave with Vaseline's Total Moisture Nourising moisturiser and really realised a huge difference because I no longer experience any tightness in my skin when I sleep in an air-con room! So amazing how these little tips can make such a huge difference!

SAM_2593

Vaseline has a new technology Stratys-3 that is different from all the others. The new Stratys-3™ is the first moisturising complex designed to work across all layers of skin epidermis without leaving a greasy residue.

We did a little experiment to compare Vaseline against brand X by using a blotter sheet to determine its oiliness!

SAM_2588

For brand X, there were little blots of oil and it was so sticky the blotter paper stuck to my hand even when I flipped it the other way. As opposed to Vaseline, there were no blots at all and it was so smooth that the blotter couldn't even stay. I didn't even have to observe for oil blots to know which is better!

So which Vaseline moisturizer exactly is suitable for your skin type? People with these skin types can try out these recommended moisturizers.

vaseline-total-moisture-variants

The Aloe Vera is more lightweight so it can be used on people with oilier skin as well as people with sensitive skin because it has more calming properties!

As for people with super duper dry skin, the cocoa butter would be the most suitable as it contains the most moisturizing ingredient.

As for the Nourishing (oatmeal) moisturizer, it can be used on people with skin redness, because oatmeal has always been popular with targeting skin redness.

I hope these tips and tricks will help you know more about how to better take care of your skin and pamper it! We should never take advantage of our skin just because we think we don't need to do anything to maintain it. Good skin requires effort (and a good moisturizer :))

So glad I was able to attend this insightful and informative workshop!

A pic with my bag of goodies from Vaseline!!! YAY~

SAM_2626

SAM_2652

Super huge tub of petroleum jelly that I especially LOVE because it can be used for SO MANY purposes! Did you know applying them on your eyebrows and eyelashes could also encourage hair growth? Try and let me know if it works for you!

Thank you Vaseline for these goodies!

My Beauty Diary x White Formula review

6/2/14

As someone who has really dry skin... Sheet masks are a must in my skincare regime. It's a really hassle free and fast way to hydrate your skin for someone who has such a packed schedule like me. I hardly have time to pamper myself :(

Personally, one of my favorite mask brands would be My Beauty Diary! My Beauty Diary is an extremely popular line of Taiwanese Facial Sheet Masks with a variety of formulas. They target a wide range of users with different skin types like dryness, dullness etc...

I'm someone who just WOULDN'T STOP BUYING SKINCARE PRODUCTS. Once I hear good reviews about any products I would hurriedly go buy them and then immediately chuck them aside after realizing it doesn't work for me. I have this really bad habit so my skincare products are piling up to a mountain.... Therefore this hamper is like the perfect package for me because I get to try products that works according to my skin type! AWESOME.

IMG_1617

I was given 3 boxes of MBD face masks with 2 being the top sellers so far, and the other with a range of almost all the face masks that they have!!

IMG_1632

My favorite has got to be these two :)

SAM_2143
♡ Coix Seed & White Pearl mask ♡

It's really moisturizing for my skin and doesn't break me out! I always wake up to dewy and fairer skin the night after using these masks.

Next would be the White Formula products that is newly released in stores!

White Formula Press Release - Super Moist Toner [Mar 2014]_Page_1

This brand is highly raved in Taiwan and I've also been hearing lotsa good reviews from my friends!




♡ White Formula super white toner

The super white toner has this really watery consistency which I really love because it doesn't make my skin feel thick or sticky after I've applied it!

SAM_2180

The formula works so well on my dry skin. Water based products are the best!

SAM_2186


The super white toner costs $19.90 for 290ml and can currently be found in many stores like Sasa and Watsons :)

Thank you MBD and White Formula for giving me the opportunity to try out these products!!
