SP: Pro trim Hair Salon x korean hair style


Had a little trim at the salon the other day and a hair treatment.

My hair stylist is Lee Han who's a korean, so he's a pro at cutting korean hairstyles! Did post a picture of him in my previous entries so run across my archives a lil' if you wish to look for him for a haircut!

 This was how I looked right after leaving the hair salon. Super happy with the haircut 'cos my hair flows so nicely! And it looks in shape with minimal styling. The way he blew my C curls were also very natural. Wish I could have someone do my hair like this for me everyday 'cos I can never achieve this... LOL.

Thank you Lee Han from Pro Trimm (JEM) for this new look!

SP: Spectacle Hut


It's the season of giving again! If you haven't already thought of what to get for your family and friends... Spectacle hut could be your one stop shop.

I've always thought practical gifts are the best. Picking my gifts from Spectacle Hut left me pretty spoilt for choice. Couldn't decide between which lenses to get.. I'm a total contact lens hoarder. Hahaha.

In the end.. I went ahead with Maxi eyes and Acuvue


Maxi lenses has got really pretty colors. But I chose mostly the brown series. Still a bigger fan of natural colors!

Chose a few daily and monthly ones. To be honest, I've been loving the daily lenses because they are so much more comfortable.


Here I'm wearing Acuvue's daily lenses in radiant brown


Look at how natural it is!!! It's almost my natural eye color... But definitely lighter and nicer.

Spectacle Hut is the best place to buy branded eyewear due to wide range of brands available and exclusive brands such as Victoria Beckham, Loewe, Linda Farrow, Sting, A Bathing Ape. You can find a wide range of contact lenses including even Anna Sui contact lenses.

As for spectacle frames, Spectacle Hut provides express service starting from 20 mins for single vision lenses and 4 hours for progressive lenses! Not to forget that they have really friendly and comfortable service to help you with what you need.

If you don't know what to get for your loved ones... You know where to go!

SP: Nailz Haus


My visit to Nailz Haus @ IMM

Was very pleased to be able to work with Nailz Haus which is a rather popular nail parlour in the west. I have a few aunts who are regular customers there and I've heard many good reviews about them so far!


Really comfy interior.

Did sculpture extensions + gel pedi this trip.


Decided to go full bling for my nails. It has always been my dream to have really exaggerating Jap style nails cuz I LOVE IT so I told Elaine my manicurist to just go all out. Hahaha.

Here's them having fun blinging out my nails... Hahaha it was so fun to watch. It was like we were having a party lol!


Sat there for 4 hours because.. Ya. Vanity. But thank god for the comfy chairs cuz my butt didn't hurt. Plus the manicurists were all so friendly and accommodating!

The end product.... Purple/white marble with gold sparkles & lotsa blings~


SO SATISFYING TO LOOK AT!! Elaine was super satisfied with her work and I definitely have gotta say that her nail sculpturing skills are real mad. So yay! Happy us.


Thank you Nailz haus for such a pleasant first experience :)

SP: Garnier Micellar Water


There has been a lot of hype on the internet about Garnier's newly launched Micellar Water recently (go google the reviews!), so I thought I would do my own reviews on their Micellar Waters and a few about-to-launch products that the Garner team sent me!

Just a bit of background information if you don’t know what Micellar is – it is an all-in-1 makeup remover + cleanser that removes makeup, but is super hydrating and caring for your skin. Best part – it doubles up as a cleanser, so you don’t have to double cleanse your skin with a face cleanser, which might over dry your skin.

I used Micellar occasionally in the past, but the reason why I don’t use it often is because it does not remove waterproof mascara easily. That being said, you have to try Garnier's Biphase Micellar (the blue version)! Not only is it able to get rid of waterproof mascara, it makes my skin feel really soft and hydrated after using it! It contains no oil, fragrance & alcohol, hence unlike the usual lip-and-eye makeup removers, it does not feel oily at all. Also, it's made in the U.S. and SG is the first country in Asia to fly this in! Lucky us!

Garnier Micellar has 2 variants:
o Blue Biphase Micellar which removes even waterproof mascara – great for events and nights where I put heavier makeup
o Pink Micellar which removes lighter makeup – so I use this to remove my day to day makeup which is typically just my foundation, lipstick, and light eye makeup


How does the Blue Biphase Micellar Water work? If you notice, there are actually 2 layers in in the bottle. The first layer is the cleansing layer (which unlike normal lip-and-eye makeup removers, is not oil), and this gets rid of stronger eye makeup like waterproof mascara. The second layer is the micellar layer which hydrates, cleanses and soothes your skin. This is why the Micellar Water is non-rinse! Meaning even after using it to remove your make up, you can just leave it as it is because it works as a cleanser as well. It feels really hydrating afterwards!

I compared it with Brand X so I can better show you the efficacy of Garnier's Micellar Water. For Brand X, I'm using a traditional oil-based Lip and Eye makeup remover.

This is before removing my eye make up with eyeshadow, mascara and eyeliner.


So what I did was to test how much makeup I can remove in 1 swipe of the cotton pad. Apparently, the best way to use Garnier Micellar Water is to hold the cotton pad on the eye area for around 2-3 seconds before swiping the makeup away. The results were amazing!


For Brand X, as expected, it removes the makeup relatively well. But the amazing thing is that for Garnier, it’s oil free but works just as well, or if not even better than an oil based remover?! Not even exaggerating..

Keep in mind this is only in  one swipe! Look how much make up Garnier's Micellar Water has already removed. I had to tug a lil harder for Brand X while I only had to leave the cotton pad on my eye for Garnier and it already did the job. Also, Garnier Micellar Water didn’t sting my eyes, but usual lip-and-eye removers sting my eyes slightly.

Now I really get the hype of the micellar water which everyone has been talking about.


After removing the make up on one eye..


It may look like I still have make up on because I have eyelash extensions but all the rest of the make up residues are completely removed.

I love how Garnier Micellar Water is so gentle and soothing on the skin. After using it, my skin feels so clean and hydrated! Plus, it leaves no residue behind so I don’t feel the need to cleanse my skin a second time! Now I can finally see for myself what makes this product so amazing.

On days where I have lighter make up on like BB cream or sunscreen, I use the pink version which is good enough for cleansing my skin. Even on days where I am completely bare faced, I do use the pink version to cleanse my face of all the dust collected on my face cuz it works like a toner! I even hear of people who actually use micellar water as a mask to hydrate their skin. It's like multi purpose..


The  blue version  sells at $19.90 (but there is a 20% off intro price now; $15.90) for a super big bottle of 400ml (that’s less than half price vs the derma brands!), and is available at Watsons, Guardian and major super/hypermarts from mid-June onwards.*

As for the  Pink version, it sells at $17.90 (20% off intro price now; $14.30), available exclusively at Guardian till Sep 2016, before it is available nationwide at Watsons, Guardian and major super/hypermarts.*

Right now, Garnier Micellar Water is only available at Guardian, so if you’d like to try it out before it’s available island wide, head to Guardian NOW!

For the price you're paying, I would say it's totally worth it!

Other than Micellar, Garnier is also bringing in a whole set of cleansers and wipes that is tailor made for every skin type, directly flown in from the USA!


o Green Cleanser + Wipes: Jojoba + peppermint – for normal skin


o Black Cleanser + Wipes: Charcoal – for oily skin


o Orange Cleanser: Pomegranate + grapefruit – for combination skin
o Light Blue Wipes: Calming plant extracts – for sensitive skin


Skin feels so well cleansed thanks to Garnier!

FANCL IN HK part 2


Day 2 in HK was spent visiting 3 Fancl concept stores.

First stop was Festival Walk.

This concept store was my favorite because of all the chio projections!

Photo 19-3-16, 11 38 20 AM

Look at all the glistening goodies... So well displayed!


At this particular store I was able to conduct a health check on myself to see what I was lacking! PS: Look at this lady's skin..... I CAN'T BELIEVE IT. It's almost like every Fancl girl has great skin. LOL.


After the test I was told I was lacking in coQ10, as well as too much calorie intake in my body. LOL.. FATTY ME.

The lady then introduced me to these pills which are also the most popular ones in the store from what I observed.


I need this T_T

With Miyake. Love her small face!

And.. Donna and I, with Karen. PR manager of Fancl. JUST LOOK AT HER SKIN.. Donna and I were saying how we should start looking for a job in Fancl. The road to nice skin. Hahahahaha.

On to the 2nd concept store @ City Plaza, Taikoo Shing


At this store they actually carry Fancl make up! Such a pity it isn't available in SG because I'd love to use make up that has no preservatives!


To the last concept store.. Nan Fung Plaza, Sheung Wan

Ending our visits with all the other bloggers! After which we parted with Gary and Karen and spent the rest of our days touring around on our own.

Next, I'm gonna share with you my reviews on a few Fancl's products that was in the goodie bag I received!


First up... Foaming cleanser.


I remember when I first had my puberty and was breaking out... My dad told me his friend recommended him this and he bought it for me. I was using it for a few months until I suddenly realised the Fancl store at Takashimaya has closed down :( I was kinda upset because I didn't know where else to find it! So I'm actually really excited that Fancl is coming back to SG.

And in case you're wondering how to use... You have to make use of the sponge to lather the product into foam!




Love how the foam didn't strip my skin off its moisture and did a great job cleansing at the same time.

Next.. Sheet masks

Looking at how moisturised the masks were during the blotch tests, I had to try it~

Photo 29-3-16, 8 42 11 PM

Didn't disappoint like I expected! Prepared me well for a wedding dinner the next day. Like a quick rescue for my skin!

Sunguard 50+ protect UV


I hate feeling icky and sticky from sunblock... And the oiliness always messes up my make up! Fancl's sunblock has a watery texture which I love. Feels so lightweight on the skin~


Ok. That's about it for now! 
Follow me on snapchat to look out for more Fancl products I'll be using! @shaniceawy

So glad I was able to learn more about Fancl's heritage during this trip and share with you guys! It was really memorable.

Thank you Gushcloud, Touch PR and Fancl :)

FANCL IN HK part 1

As you've seen from my snapchats or ig... My last weekend was spent in HK with Fancl! I was one of the few lucky bloggers to be invited for this media junket. It has been soooo many years since I've been to HK so imagine how excited I was when I found out that I was gonna be heading there!! I'm not familiar with the place at all.. So I was very thankful for Fancl and touch PR who did such a great job in hosting and bringing us around. And of course GC for giving me this opportunity.


My favourite sight to see...


Took the airport transfer bus to Marco Polo hotel the moment we touched down.

Washed up and ready to head to FANCL HQ


Here at FANCL HQ to learn more about the no preservatives brand! This is how they came up with their tag line "LESS IS MORE", bringing more for your skin with less ingredients.


Warm welcome yet again, to fill our tummies with yummy cakes~


The caramel one was SOOOO GOOD. Couldn't keep my hands off the table.. LOL. Ok, back to the slides!


Preservatives can be very harmful for the skin as it can lead to premature aging as well as weak and sensitive skin. Do you realise how using certain skincare products with alcohol reddens your skin? It's actually the result of preservatives present in those products.

The best way to keep your skin youthful and healthy is to keep away from preservatives!

Fancl is known for its freshness. Unlike other Brand’s, Fancl has their products packed in small bottles. This is to ensure that it remains fresh within 60 days.


 It is also sealed with a plastic to ensure that nutrients are kept within and the product is not contaminated as it's completely isolated from external air.


Other than that, Fancl also has its manufactured date printed on all their bottles. This is something a user like me would definitely appreciate! I can't imagine putting something on my face which has been on shelves for months.... This attractive point about Fancl definitely shows how considerate they are towards their consumers. You'd love to know what you're putting on your faces wouldn't you?


After hearing so much about Fancl.. I really wonder what I've been putting on my face all these while. LOL.

Off to the Fancl workshop!


Blotch tests to show us the difference between Fancl and other brands.

Fancl's cleansing oil was the best among all the brands. It really penetrated deep into the lime's pores... As u can see, the other cleansers merely just cleansed the surface! Cleansers that dont do a good job can cause clogged pores and rough skin..


And on to the most shocking part..... Look how well locked the moisture is from Fancl! There are certain other brands which I've always had a good impression of but turns out it really isn't that moisturising.... I was pretty surprised! And impressed by Fancl's moisturising lotion as well. 


This is not all.. They even have supplements for you to radiate beauty from within.

I have to tell you though.... This white advance supplement really got me SOLD.

Iodine was used to represent melanin in our bodies. Lemon, which is a popular whitening agent was then added to show how it could whiten our skin. In the other cup, FANCL's whitening pill was mixed and added.


LOOK AT THE DIFFERENCE?! Karen only used a little tiny drop from the mixture of the pills and the iodine immediately turned TRANSPARENT. It works so much faster and better than lemon!

The best part is, once it has turned transparent, further addition of iodine wouldn't turn it back to brown again. Meaning after the consumption of Fancl's white in pills; it doesn't only make you fair but prevent you from getting tanned in future. What sorcery is this?! Oh man these melanin in my body has got to go...

After this, we also did a skin test to check on our skin's health. It was like the moment of truth for all us...... Hahaha.


After the test I found out that my skin was worse than the kind lady at the station who was in her 40's T_T it seems that the surface doesn't really reveal your true skin's health..

Couldn't wait to get back to the hotel to try out all the goodies from Fancl!

Back to the hotel and off for dinner at E puré, a fine dining restaurant in Ocean Centre, Tsim Tsa Tsui
