SP: Pro Trim Hair Salon


New hairdo at Pro Trim Salon, JEM. 

Was very Glad to have Lee Han handle my hair because I'm a big fan of Korean hair styles and of course, what better way than to have a Korean stylist himself! I've had my hair done in Korea before and it's really different from Singapore..

My hair was super dark before visiting Pro Trim cuz of my stupid decision to dye it dark brown at a Neighbourhood salon. 

It looks ok in pictures but trust me.. Irl it was so black it looked like a wig. LOL. 

Lee Han used a bleaching shampoo to wash out the color. Which is much milder than a bleach itself. I've had my hair bleached before and I would say this bleaching shampoo really doesn't feel half as bad at all. If you would like to lighten your hair just abit I suggest trying this bleaching shampoo out.. It's really not damaging at all!

After 2 washes..

Decided to go with an ashy brown and this were the results:

Perfect shade of brown! Plus the hair cut was awesome... I have really thick hair so it's super hard to style. But the haircut made it so much more manageable. It's constantly in shape even when I don't blow it.. 

I love it!!! And my hair doesn't even feel so frizzy now. 

Thank you so much Lee Han from Pro Trim Salon @ JEM :)

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 :)

Dove Sensitive Skin Body Wash


I have really sensitive skin.. I had eczema when I was younger and have always been very careful about the soaps I use. Having slightly sensitive skin makes it really difficult to find a body wash that is both moisturizing and is gentle on my skin.

Adding onto my skin condition woes… my job also requires me to spend days at outdoor shoots etc. and the heat in Singapore dries my skin up really quickly. Sometimes when I'm in an air-conditioned room I can even sense a prickly feeling on my skin due to the dryness.

So you can imagine how happy I was when I found out about Dove’s Sensitive Skin Body Wash! A hypoallergenic, soap free and clinically tested body wash especially for sensitive skin!



Just one pump..


It lathers a lot even with just a little product!

Dove Sensitive Skin Body Wash is milder because it uses gentle cleansers that don’t strip your skin like other body washes do, and even helps your skin to retain its nutrients, how great is that?

After using Dove Sensitive Skin Body Wash for 5 days, I found it really mild and gentle, but still moisturizing on my skin. It makes me feel refreshed and rejuvenated, and my skin feels soft and smooth. Unlike previous body washes which sometimes made me come out of the bathroom with redness on certain parts of my body, Dove Sensitive Skin Body Wash kept my skin feeling soft and hydrated for the whole day even without putting body moisturiser!

Not to forget, it has this really mild baby smell which I LOVE! And the smell is not strong either so it's kind of like an assurance that it's not too harsh on my skin haha. I love smelling like a baby!

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!

Fillers @ Atlas Medical Clinic


I am someone who thinks about plastic surgery. But definitely not one courageous enough to go for it... So I always thought fillers was a better idea cuz it's less invasive and more natural! I still wanna look like myself, just maybe a better version hehe.

I decided to get it done with Atlas Medical Laser & Aesthetics Clinic, which is also the place where I go for facials and lasers for the past 2 years. 

My concerned area was my nose because I have this bump at my bridge which disturbs me. Dr Yuen said my nose bridge was rather high already, but the problem is that my nose isn't straight. 

From the left profile, my nose looks pretty ok! In fact I love my left profile.. If only it looks the same on the right.

From the right there's this bump on my bridge? Almost ike an indentation? Not sure if you can see it but it's rather obvious IRL. My friends call it the funny bone, lol!

So DR Yuen went ahead to work his magic..

Botox pillow to calm my nerves..

Throughout the process the assistant was really sweet and constantly tapped on my hands to calm me down. I think what she did really helped a lot and I find it nice that they pay attention to such small details!

This is my nose now.. From the left profile.

As you can see my bridge is smoothened and the bump is also gone!!! I LOVE IT OMG! MAGIC. I used to have a concern that the fillers will disappear really quickly cuz I wear specs..?? (Maybe just a wrong assumption lol!) But it has been 2 months now and there isn't even any shift or difference! 

All I can say is.. Thank you Dr Yuen for always solving my concerns for me!

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 :)
