At some point in a beautyjunkie’s life, after you’ve dabbled with a little this and that, there comes a time when the notion of fillers start to dominate. I’ve been considering several treatments of late, to bring back the youthful cheekbones and sculpted jawline… so imagine my excitement when the latest La Prairie innovation promises to do all that without any poking needles!

I recently had a test done to check on my skin’s “age”, and I was shocked to find that my skin had aged 9 years in the past 5 years. And the key reason for that was a drastic drop in firmness and radiance, and increased wrinkles. It was inevitable, given I’m sleeping much lesser now than before, and my skin is being exposed to much more stresses with increased air travel. So I finally decided to break into the new Clarins Multi-Active Day and Night moisturizer duo to target those early signs of aging!

I love every single La Mer moisturizer there has ever been released, and have managed to find a use for every one of them. With only one face, it is almost unfathomable to find an occasion for yet another moisturizer, and yet… La Mer has managed to surprise me yet again with its new Moisturizing Matte Lotion!

This is a story of indecent obsession… seriously, if you don’t wish to be led into temptation you need to stop reading now. But if you, like me, have been jaded and exhausted by all the layering and massaging and whatever else the beauty industry has been throwing at us… and are seeking a simple effective solution to flawless skin, you have to meet La Prairie Line Interception Power Duo!

Last year, Origins introduced a novel new range of products targeting matured skin that has lapsed into a sleeping state of senescence and is no longer functioning optimally. And now, to complement the Three Part Harmony range (first introduced here), Origins has added 2 new products – a luxurious Foaming Cream-to-Oil Cleanser and a new Soft Cream. I actually took both of them with me on my 2-week long trip to Germany last January in the midst of winter, and have also tested them again back home in tropical Singapore… and I’d love to share them with you today!

Happy New Year my friends! I hope the holiday season had been fruitful and rewarding for you. I’m really looking forward to 2017, and it is my sincerest wish for you to enjoy abundant blessings in the coming days – may your hearts be full, and your lives be filled with your hearts’ desires!
The new year marks a fresh start, and this year I’m hoping to take a new approach with my skincare. Last year, I battled with the onset of adult acne, and after several frustrated attempts to get things under control myself, I finally decided to engage professional help. Following the advice of Dr Gerard Ee at The Clifford Clinic, I decided to cut back on all the products that I was loading my skin with. More isn’t always better! Instead, I am now on a minimalist routine, with an emphasis on oil-free, simply-formulated products with maximum efficiency. And I am finally at a place where I am comfortable enough to declare my skin is better than ever! Of course, I still encounter the occasional woe, and for whatever ails that strike, I add on targeted solutions such as the new Bobbi Brown Remedies Collection.
