SKINCARE ROUTINE x Atlas Medical Clinic

12/23/15

Been receiving tons of questions on my ask.fm about my skincare routine so I'll do a detailed post to share the products I've been using so far!

I've been with Atlas for more than a year now and I've gotta say.. I love how they've been taking such great care of my skin. I wouldn't say that my skin is perfect because I'm still far from that... But I'm super thankful for the treatments that Atlas has provided me because it helps to maintain my skin so much! I always receive offers from other facial salons to try out free facials but I never ever take them up because I just can't trust someone else to handle my skin? No one knows my skin better than Atlas... SERIOUSLY. I guess it's partly because I'm a regular there but also because their products seem to ALWAYS be suitable for me. It's really hard to find products suited for my skin because it's extremely sensitive. But Atlas' products are my favorite!

12230006

1. SPLASH AWAY Cleanser

12230011

I love this cleanser!!! It reminds me of my facials at Atlas because they always use this to cleanse my skin. It smells really good plus it does a great job in cleansing without ripping off moisture or giving me a crazy breakout. For those who are acne prone and have sensitive skin like me, this cleanser would be really great for you. If it doesn't break my skin out, I'm pretty confident it wouldn't on yours.

It foams up after you lather the product in your hand, so you don't really have to use a lot of product.

2. 2IN1 Moisturiser

I'm a big fan of the Rose 2 moisturizer which I did a post on here. Just a disclaimer... My products were never sponsored by Atlas. I've been purchasing them ever since they gave me a set of Bebepu products to try out because it worked really well for me.

The girls then introduced me to this new 2in1 moisturiser which is the improved version of the Rose 2. It's a toner and moisturizer together! So basically you can just skip the step of the toner and use this immediately after cleansing.

12230013

It's not oily at all and I love the watery texture.

12230010

Definitely definitely gonna repurchase. I really can't do without moisturisers from Atlas. It is a bit on the costlier side because it's medical grade and its specially developed by Dr Sm Yuen and made in Korea. Plus it's good for sensitive skin because it's paraben free!

3. BB Cream

I ever did a short mention of the Rose-2 BB cream on my ig here:



And this is the BB cream I've been talking about!

12230015

I rave about it a lot to my friends... And everytime after facial when my therapist applies the BB cream for me, my friends always tell me my face is glowing. If you're a fan of the dewy look, you'll love this BB cream! It has SPF15 on top of the coverage and moisturising effect so you don't have to apply sunblock separately.

Thank you Atlas Medical and DR SM Yuen for always keeping my skin in check~


BROWHAUS: BROWGRAPHY X PRODUCT SET

12/22/15

Just did my Browgraphy @ Browhaus located in Holland Village! It's really convenient because it's just a 5 minutes walk from the MRT station.

The Browgraphy session includes brow tinting and brow threading. Recently I've dyed my hair a lighter shade of brown, so I decided to tint my brows as well to match my hair! Also I wanted a change to achieve a softer look with lighter brows.

SAM_0710

The threading wasn't totally painless... Would say the pain level is 5/10? But the good thing is the process was done really quick so the pain is really bearable! As for the brow tint I hardly felt anything except a littleeee tinge of stinging but it's almost negligible so pain level 0/10! It's actually quite a comfortable process to be honest.

After my browgraphy....

SAM_0753

The whole process only took me about 20 minutes? It was really quick and I loved the neatness of my brows! I always trim my brows on my own so I guess I don't exactly do a good job... But now I see how a perfect job is done. Hahaha.

I do actually love dark brows and for those who have dark colored hair... I totally recommend you to go for a brow tint to darken your brows!!! It really makes a big difference!! And considering that it last up to a month (but depending on your hair growth), it's really not that costly at all.

Browhaus Makeup Range- Weapons of Mass Seduction

Browhaus has also launched a range of waterproof eye makeup that includes Heavy Duty Bi-liner, Classic Brow Lead, Precision Eyeliner, HD Mascara (top to bottom)

SAM_0725SAM_0728

I was told these products could even lasts through a session of hot yoga.... WUUUUT?!!

The Browhaus Precision Eyeliner – part of Browhaus’ first ever range of eye makeup – offers long-lasting smudge-proof wear and intense colour for up to 24 hours, making it ideal even for ladies with oilier eyelids.

12110045

Its specially designed felt-tip applicator allows for precision lining so you can change up your look from fresh thinly-lined lids to dramatic Cleopatra wing-tips with ease.

Browhaus Precision Eyeliner, $17.90, is available at all Browhaus outlets in Singapore.

Hot on the heels of Browhaus’ first ever range of eye makeup comes the Browhaus Heavy-Duty Bi-Liner in five eye-catching metallic shades with a hint of shimmer.

12110052

Designed with a waterproof gel pencil on one end and a soft smudge-tip and sharpener on the other, the Browhaus Heavy-Duty Bi-Liner offers long-lasting wear for up to 24 hours.

Line your peepers with the colour of your choice to define them, or create a sexy and sophisticated eyeshadow effect by gently smudging the liner on your eyelids.

Most importantly, these 2 products are waterproof! The heavy duty bi Liner is a lot more resistant to water I must say.. As you can see there's some redness on my hand from rubbing it off but the Bi Liner really STAYS ON. In fact it's really hard to get rid of without a make up remover. Which is extremely good for someone with oily lids like me.

12110049

Heavy duty bi liner available in Noir Shimmer, Midnight Blue, Burgundy, Amber, and Blush.

Browhaus Heavy-Duty Bi-liners ($12.90 each, $50 for a bundle set of all five colours) are available at all Browhaus outlets in Singapore.


Browhaus Classic Brow Lead comes in three natural shades to suit any skin tone and hair colour. The one I'm using is asphalt which is the darkest shade!


Created with the modern woman’s active lifestyle in mind, the Browhaus Classic Brow Lead provides 24-hour lasting wear so your makeup stays flawless as you go about your day. You won’t have to worry about your makeup running even when you’re out for a run!

Amp up sparse brows with the smooth-finish pencil and neaten by adding finishing touches using the soft-bristle brush on the other end. Each Browhaus Classic Brow Lead comes with a sharpener so your brows will always look on point.


For best results, fill in brow gaps with light, feathery strokes in the same direction as your hair growth, and brush stray hairs in place.


Available in Blonde, Soft Brown, and Asphalt.

Browhaus Classic Brow Lead, $17.90 is available at all Browhaus outlets in Singapore.

The Browhaus HD mascara contains Clay minerals that add gloss and help lengthen and hold the curl without your lashes feeling stiff or dry, while the specially designed brush picks up just the right amount of formula to ensure that your lashes are evenly coated and well-defined without being clumpy. Talk about HD quality!



Available in black.

BLACKBOX X SOTHYS

12/15/15

Remember Sothys which was featured in October's blackbox? This time in Blackbox's December edition, they are featuring Sothys Paris Exclusive Box. A whole box filled with just Sothys products! Tagging along its good reviews, they are now bringing you not just a range of skin care but body care solutions as well this festive season!

12110023

Goodbye dullness and dehydration~ With a wide array of products available in town, here’s what you need for your day to day skin care routine that is suitable for all skin types.

12110004

1) Hydra3Ha Discovery Kit

SOTHYS Hydra3HA™ Line – a 3-dimensional programme provides powerful hydration that starts from deep within skin cells at gene level to surface moisture barrier. Empowered with triple hyaluronic acid, it restores, reactivates and regenerates the skin for long-lasting beauty.

12110003

Trust me... Hyaluronic acid is GOODNESS FOR YOUR SKIN! I love using sheet masks with hyaluronic acid because it doesn't just hydrate your skin's surface but penetrates through your skin too.

a) Hydra3Ha™ Intensive Hydrating Serum

Serum always come first right after cleansing and toning. They are essential to help restore skin’s moisture level leaving it youthful and hydrated. It also contains Hyaluronic acid that can boost up to 60% hydration.

12110027

Tip: Give it 1.5 to 1 min intervals before applying the next step! This is to ensure that the product has enough time to be absorbed into your skin.

How to use: Apply in the morning and evening on the entire face and neck, avoiding eye contour. Followed by SOTHYS Hydra3Ha™ Hydrating Gel-Cream.

Retail Size and Price: 50ml, $185

b) Hydra3Ha™ Hydrating Gel-Cream


This Gel-Cream is then applied after the serum, it helps to retain and lock up the skin’s moisture level, leaving your skin hydrated throughout the day. Some may skip this step during their lazy days as serum would very much have done the job too. But if you have really dehydrated skin, end it with this step to achieve a supple looking skin!

12110024

It does look very rich and thick but after spreading it out it becomes really light weight!

12110026

Retail Size and Price: 50ml, $158

c) Hydra-smoothing Mask

I'm a big fan of their nutri soothing mask and this mask definitely doesn't disappoint too. Don’t be lazy! Apply masks 1- 2 times a week to help restore your skin’s elasticity while giving your skin an instant quench and improve its elasticity.

12110028

The mask is actually really thin and watery so a little amount could already be enough of your whole face!

How to use: Apply a layer on entire face & neck for 10 – 15 mins. Wipe or rinse off any excess product depending on skin type. Use once or twice per week.

Retail Size and Price: 50ml, $113

After using all the products on my hand... Skin feels really supple and radiant!

12110029

Hydration is especially important to make sure your skin rejuvenates with enough moisture and to also let your make up glide on smoothly. Skin dryness can lead to many problems like aging and darkening of the skin so MOISTURE WELL!

2) Cherry Blossom & Lotus Escape

12110007

Scent plays an inevitable part in our everyday living. It is known that the scent you like exudes the type of personality you carry as well as it affects the emotional state of mind. The delicate aromatic essence will not only nourish your skin but will also put you in the mood.

a) Cherry Blossom & Lotus Escape Shower Cream

End your day with a good aromatic essence bath that can be therapeutic for the mind, soul and skin! Yes, Cherry Blossom is known for its anti-inflammatory or antiirritant properties hence, make a very good product even on sensitive skin.

Retail Size and Price: 200ml, $57

b) Cherry Blossom & Lotus Escape Relaxing Body Scrub

12110032


My favourite step of body care would be body scrubs because it makes your skin feel soooooo smooth and clean! Pamper yourself with a scrub to ease tiredness and rough patches on your skin. It’s always a good way to perk yourself up with such little pampering! Apply your favourite moisturiser right after the bath to keep your skin smooth and supple overnight.

Retail Size and Price: 200ml, $57

AND OMG..... Did I mention. The smell of this range is crazy!!!! It makes me smell like a BABY. You know that kind of powdery smell? It smells almost like my perfume I think I could just shower and leave the house like that without having to apply any perfume. I LOVE IT!!! I'm going to purchase a big bottle.


Thank you Sothys for making me smell good~

Although I don't exactly face aging issues for my skin YET... Like what beauty gurus always say, PREVENTION IS BETTER THAN CURE. And like the name suggests, it's a defense kit! Not necessarily only used for people with current aging issues. Do you know it’s advisable to start your anti-aging care at the age of 21?
