Introducing to you... BlackBox October Edition.



This month, they are going all out for you and your skin.. Bringing you products out of the ordinary!


1. SOTHYS Sensitive Discovery Kit


Some of you might have the same problem of having a combination skin that sometimes gets too oily in certain areas during mid-day, and yet on some other days it can get too flaky due to weather or environmental change that gets your skin itchy and sensitive. Well... This range could just be the solution to your problems!

Micellar Cleansing Water

My favourite kind of make up removers are definitely the water based! It's really great for sensitive skin and you definitely wouldn't have to worry about getting breakouts because it's mild on the skin yet it does it job efficiently.

I always wipe my face using a cotton pad twice to ensure it cleanses my skin thoroughly and that's all I need! It has really saved a lot of time for me when it comes to skincare at night.

Soothing SOS Serum

This serum instantly soothes permanent or temporary discomfort sensations and limit appearance of redness. My skin is always dehydrated and this serum has given a great boost for my skin.

I use this right after my toner and before my moisturiser using patting motions and it absorbs really quickly! Not to mention the serum doesn't feel oily at all so it feels extremely comfortable on my skin.


Soothing Melting Fluid

The soothing melting fluid is a daily protection to protect the skin from external aggression and reduce skin discomfort. I apply it on my entire face and neck after SOTHYS Soothing SOS Serum, both day and night. It works especially well together with the Nutri-soothing mask in targeting redness!


Nutri-soothing Mask

The mask is an emergency care to provide immediate relief to discomfort sensations and maintains the balance of sensitive skin. Because I'm extremely prone to redness... This mask has been really helpful and effective for me! On days where my skin experiences redness, I'll just slap on this mask before I go and sleep and it resolves all of it the next morning.

All you have to do is apply an even layer on cleansed face and leave on for 10 minutes before rinsing off. Then apply SOTHYS Soothing Melting Fluid. Easy peasy!

The haze has been really bad these days and my sensitive skin is starting to react to the toxic air... On days like these... Your skin really needs a lot of care and love. And I'm so thankful that this range has been so useful in helping me calm my skin! Keep in mind, beauty waits for no one so you should neverrrrrrr neglect your skin.

2. d’skin UV Defense

The most important part above skincare is of course protection. It is one daily routine you should never go without because sun rays are the biggest culprit to our skin's aging so do put in the extra effort to use sunscreen everyday! Prevention is better than cure.


As described on the product bottle – ‘this sunscreen has NO LIMITATION to its effectiveness of SPF & PA unless the sunscreen is cleansed from our skin’. If you want a fair and beautiful skin, simply slap them on your face and let it do the job.

It has this mild whitening effect as well so it gives your overall skin an even tone! You can even go without bb creams if you want to.


Brought it out the other day and I love how the bottle is so small and convenient to bring around!

Retail Size and Price: UV Defense 40ml - $138

3. ITOH Japan Crystal Collagen 5300


Beauty doesn't only matter on the outside but it also comes from within.

Your well-being is also what you eat or drink. Treat yourself to something good daily. Make it a routine and you are a step closer to younger and supple looking skin.

I love how this tastes because its peach flavoured and it's really sweet! Almost like I'm drinking juice every morning.

A collagen a day keeps ageing at bay!

Was super excited to give Dermagold's products a try because they have a whole range of products that are so suitable for my skin problems! I have extremely sensitive skin so for those who are like me, these products would probably work the same for you because I really believe there isn't anyone else who has even more sensitive skin than I do...

2. Delicate Skin Toner

Price: $42

Size: 100ml

I'm currently not using a toner because it's really hard to find a suitable one for my skin. They are always either too dry or too rich for me.. But I was glad I decided to give dermagold's toner a try because it didn't disappoint! I love products with aloe Vera because I have extremely sensitive skin and aloe Vera works really well for my skin problems. What I love about the toner is that it doesn't strip my skin off its moisture but cleanses it at the same time, even soothing it as well. 3 in 1 benefit~

DERMAGOLD Star Product
Simply Her Smart Shopper Great Skin Awards 2015 Winner: Face Serum – Editor’s Rave

My skin is extremely prone to scarring so vitamin C serums are like the holy grail in my skincare regime. I have about 4 brands of vitamin c serums at home but they all have this sticky consistency which can sometimes make my skin feel a lil' uncomfortable. But the vit c serum from dermagold is really watery! I've been using it for a week now and it has been really effective in lightening my marks and brightening up my skin.

NUYOU Suncare Awards 2015 - After Suncare (Face)
SHAPE Suncare Awards Aftersun Care For Face (Most Moisturising)

My favorite has got to be the hydrogel moisturizer. It's gel based which means it doesn't make your skin feel oily and greasy. I go to sleep applying the hydrogel moisturizer and always wake up to less redness on my skin that feels a lot more supple. It works just like a sleeping mask! I'm a big fan of gel based moisturizers because it doesn't clog my pores and yet can provide an instant dose of hydration. Living in a humid climate, gel based moisturizers are really the best.

Dermagold Best Selling UV Protection

I try to avoid heavy makeup and on days where it's not required I will simply apply sunblock to protect my skin from the sun rays. But the thing about normal sunblocks I use is that it doesn't provide coverage and sometimes I feel insecure baring my 100% naked skin.. This is when tinted sunblocks come into good use!! Dermagold's sunblock is really light and gives you a "no make up make up look", making your skin a lot more bright and radiant with minimal coverage.

Dermagold Premier BB Sunshield SPF50 is a premier light textured BB lotion that has sunblock SPF50. Suitable for all skin types, especially pigmented skin.

Apply on face generously before sun exposure.

I have extremely sensitive skin myself and the mask works wonders for me. I always wake up to fairer and firmer skin the next day. Not to mention that my pores look less visible as well!

KISS also sent me Aqua Mineral Mud Foam which detoxifies and moisturizes your skin at the same time. It washes away impurities and excess oils, leaving skin refreshed, nourished and moisturized.

It contains dead sea minerals that are successfully used in cosmetics; they contribute to create and promote healthy skin regeneration, elasticity and permeability of the skin. Dead Sea Minerals are suitable to protect the skin from infections and allergies, and retain moisture in the skin, therefore they can be very useful in cleansing and removing impurities from the skin.

Lenses have been a necessity for me ever since I developed short sightedness and I've been wearing 'em for about 6 years now? Always found it a hassle to buy them from optical shops because only a few would have instocks for my degree and I'd have to go through the trouble of ordering and waiting etc..

As much as I love lenses like Geo lens, it never stopped me from being skeptical about its authenticity, esp those sold online. So I always stuck with reputable brands like Freshkon that you can find in most of the optical shops around. Although I never had trouble finding these brands, I still found it troublesome to have to go collect them every now and then considering the lazy bum that I am.

Well for those like me.. GOOD NEWS. There's now an online site for you to conveniently place orders for trustable lenses!

Here I'm wearing my new favorite pair of lenses... Freshkon in Winsome brown. I love how it's not too exaggerating and it's close to the color of my eyes. Doubt I have to emphasize on its comfort cus I'm pretty sure you guys are already aware

Adore Imagene in brown

The best thing besides sending these lenses to your door step.... Is that they offer subscription services for contact lenses (the first to be launched in Singapore). Subscription services offer further discounts and there will be no need for consumers to reorder, no need to panic when your supply runs low. Everything is made convenient just for you!

Other than subscription, individual boxes are for sale as well with FREE SHIPPING!
Head on to purchase your pretty lenses~

Introducing to you....

The new


The Samsung Galaxy Alpha is the Korean company's first metal phone. It's a step away from Samsung's usual plastic and towards more high-end luxury.


With a tougher body and the strip of aluminum running round the side, the Alpha certainly looks like a high-end smartphone. Inevitably the metal frame is the major talking point here, but it’s the weight that really makes the strongest first impression. At just 6.7mm thick, it weighs only 115g. The Alpha is lightweight and convenient to hold and carry around.

In addition to that, this slim and sleek device can stream music, movies and download games at a much faster speed thanks to its new 4G LTE Cat6 capability! In simpler terms, it means faster connectivity!


I love how the discreet dimpled soft-touch back adds on to the phone's premium quality, making it look even more graceful.



Alongside the overall design, the display is probably my next favorite thing featured on the Galaxy Alpha. While it is only a 720p Super AMOLED panel, it looks super awesome. Colors are rich and contrast levels are exemplary. It makes taking pictures so much of a joy with such crisp screens!


The Alpha packs a 12-megapixel autofocus camera with a 2.1-megapixel selfie camera in the front. The camera can shoot impressively at a fast speed. Use a finger to adjust the focus point with ease and the depth of focus is impressive.


Samsung's Selective Focus mode lets you capture a burst of exposures at different focus levels and then choose the focal point after the fact. 


Check out my selfies taken by the Samsung Alpha!

Battery Life

Like the S5, the Alpha has an Ultra Power Saving mode, which switches the handset to use a greyscale theme and restricts which apps can run. It can dramatically extend battery life up to 10 hours, stretching out the last few percentages of battery life on your phone. Samsung, as usual, living up to it's name for having an amazing battery life on their phones.


Smart Switch

Not to forget, the smart switch has made it so easy for me to transfer my apps and whatnot to my Alpha in just a minute! Everything is made so convenient thanks to the many innovations of Samsung.


Fingerprint Security
Another great feature of the Samsung Galaxy ALPHA 4G+ 4G is the really cool fingerprint recognition function. That means you can unlock your phone using your fingerprint! It’s so much more convenient and secure. And, it makes online shopping so much more convenient as you can link your PayPal account to your Samsung device and authenticate your purchase with a single swipe of a finger.
Finally, check out the GALAXY Life app which gives you all the updates on the latest deals and privileges of various boutiques, F&B stores and many more. It’s able to customize the updates according to your preferences and interests so it really saves you time in scrolling through a long list.

This beauty comes in three pretty colors: Frosted Gold (which is the one I’m using), Dazzling White & Charcoal Black.

 Get your Samsung Galaxy ALPHA 4G+ at any Samsung Experience Store at only $848 without any plan. It’s definitely a steal! To top things off, there's an ongoing promotion of free Tab 3 Lite (7.0") Wi-Fi. So do check it out!

In conclusion, the ALPHA has been such a joy to use and I definitely love the feel of it. It's the perfect size for me and it has almost everything I need!


Thank you Samsung!
