Sponsored Review: Her Fashion Box

I got an awesome surprise at my house recently.. and it's none other than my favorite Fashion Box from Australia! If you guys haven't heard of it before.. our questions are HOW and WHY!? While we admittedly agree Singapore has pretty awesome box services as well, Her Fashion Box is probably one of our Top 3 Faves! I mean, seriously - the things you see in the picture above CAME as part of the subscription set - forget samples or travel size, these beauties come in only one form: PERFECTION (to quote Chandler Bing).

Event: The Body Shop x Digital Fashion Week

Want to know a fun fact? Sam and I wanted to enrol ourselves into fashion communication when we had the option to back in our first year of Lasalle. What stopped us? Our lack of ability to sew hahaha. Although embroidery is something that Sam does find therapeutic right now, me? yeah… not so much. 

So you can imagine that having not come from a fashion background, an invite to a fashion show would have been quite a surprise to us. Not to mention getting a chance to also interview the Lead makeup artist for one of the biggest fashion events in Singapore Lan, who flew all the way from London. All this, we never would have thought could happen and thanks to The Body Shop, we got to see what goes on at a fashion show and pick up some of beauty’s top-tips from the master herself.

Sponsored Review: The GlamGlow Family

The GlamGlow range has been out for awhile now - some for more than a year, and some for just a few months. They not only come in a wondrous range of colors, but also come with many different functions for many different skin types!

Truth be told, back when we were students, we weren't quite sure which one to purchase. At a whopping price point of SGD $92, we were always hesitant to take that jump. Ash and I have skin which tends to be a little more sensitive - so there was always that chance of having a really bad breakout should things not go smoothly.

But not to worry, because we're here today to tell you, depending on your skin type, what to splurge on and what to buy! ;) Each Glam Glow serves a different purpose, so just read on to find out which best fits you!

Review: IDS #2 - Electrocautery (EC) for Acne

I'm back to do a follow up from my previous post on IDS, and this time it's on a treatment I did there called Electrocautery! Even though most people return after a month to get their products topped up or changed, I experienced a bit of issues a week in.

If you remember from my Previous Post, I have very sensitive skin, and the PORE product I was given was not suitable for me after all :(. This was such a waste because I've heard, and many of you also know, that PORE is the holy grail for SO MANY people! The one amazing product that was clearing everyone's blackheads and whiteheads was performing quite the opposite for me it seemed. On top of that , I was also having a crazy hormonal fluctuation and my chin started to break out like mad.

P/S: excuse my less than glamorous face above haha.

Review: IDS Clinic #1

Some of you may know that I've been struggling with my skin ever since that blasted facial allergy. On some days it's good, like nothing happens and everything looks great. On some days, it's bad and everyone ends up giving me the 'What happened!?' look whenever we meet... sooo.

At the very end of my tether, I've decided to go to see a dermatologist clinic. Whilst the Lumi Oxy did help me out a great deal, I do believe that devices ultimately have to work in tandem with products.. and what I was using wasn't performing as well as they used to after my facial disaster. On top of that, my hormones decided to hold a pimple convention on my face... so yes. Off to IDS I went.

Sponsored Review: Elizabeth Arden 8-Hour Limited Edition Collection

I recently somewhat recovered from a facial allergy. It's not been fun....... and I was ultra depressed at times.. One of the notable moments being that I stood in front of the super harsh Inglot makeup mirror (have you guys seen that PARTICULAR ONE?) and remembered how even the creamiest foundation/concealer came out in the ugliest blotches across my face... *shudders*.

So you can imagine my joy when I received a package of goodies SPECIFICALLY meant for problematic dry skin! I swear, this wasn't a planned thing and I never requested for any help. This was a Godsend simply put. If you've got problematic skin, be it from an allergy, constant rashes, eczema, this may be the answer you are looking for.

Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant
This cream is the legendary, award winning Eight Hour Cream Protectant that everyone has been talking about for ages. This amazing product is so supremely moisturizing and can be taken out to be used anywhere anytime - yes literally anywhere, don't feel limited to using it on your face alone.

The Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant's versatility extends beyond just hydrating your skin after all; it can be used to shape brows (like your typical brow gel!), smooth cuticles and nails, rehydrate lips and protect skin against/alleviate symptoms of chapping, peeling and windburn due to dryness from exposure to the elements.

Advertorial: Lumi-Oxy

Have you guys ever felt in dire need of a facial but just don't have the time, energy, or money to go to one? We've all been there and done that! Some facials, the good ones at least, can cost more than $100 each time, and take about 30 minutes to 2 hours even. Some are even way out of the way, which makes it difficult for us to stop by after work or on weekends when we want to rest in - right?

Well, you never have to face that issue again! Enter the.... *DRUMROLL*.... Lumi-Oxy! :D

If you're wondering what that is - it's the device that I am holding! Can you see it? It looks ALMOST like a Clarisonic, except that its brush head has been replaced with a bulb. This bulb is EXTREMELY special, and we are here today to tell you just why!

Monthly: Sam's October Favorites

It's great to take a breather at the end of the month and get to write one of my all time favorite posts. Normally, we take the effort to break down individual products the best we can so you guys get as much detail as possible - but once in awhile, it's great to just summarize your favorite points up in 2-3 Paragraphs. It also makes for fun light reading doesn't it? ;)

This month, I've been so blessed. Ash and I have been given so many amazing things, left right and center, that we almost spent nothing on ourselves (skincare and makeup wise, food is another story lol)! So I thought I'd round up the most FAVORITE things I got and share them with you!
