Korean beauty is making huge waves lately, and one of my favourite departmental stores in Singapore has just opened up an entire beauty hall dedicated to Korean brands! And when it comes to the crème de la crème, there is none as highly coveted as Sulwhasoo. This is a brand steeped in Asian heritage, and leverages on ancient wisdom to turn Korean medicinal herbs into effective beauty ingredients. Consistent with the high regard that Asians place on a fair and even skin tone as a standard of beauty, Sulwhasoo has developed a highly popular Snowise Brightening Line, and today I’d like to introduce 2 of their best sellers.

I will get back to Spring 2017 makeup collections soon, but there’s something that I’ve just been bursting to tell you about and it has to be done now. As I had shared a week ago [here], I’ve been on a skincare diet for the good part of last year due to my acne, but inwardly I’ve been itching to slather myself with some luxurious products. It is a delicate balance between giving my skin all the hydrating/lifting/plumping it needs, and keeping acne from flaring up all over again. When this bottle of La Mer The Revitalizing Hydrating Serum arrived last month, I first approached it cautiously, but within days was completely won over…and now I can’t live without it!

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.

Blessed Christmas everybody!! I hope you are having a wonderful time with your friends and family, at the very least kicking back and enjoying a relaxing time. We’ve all been working hard all year (whether in school, at work, or at home with our families), so it is time to take a well-deserved break! And for our skin as well, all those burning the late-night oil, traveling and over-eating is bound to show up somehow, which is why I thought it’d be timely to share with you these nifty little skin saviours that I’ve been absolutely loving for the past couple of months!

I fell in love with La Prairie’s Skin Caviar range of products when I first tried out the Eye Complex [here], so I was thrilled to discover the newly launched La Prairie Skin Caviar Essence-in-Lotion!

The problem with being a beauty blogger is this narcissistic tendency to obsess over every inch of my face, every single day. And even with new social media platforms for people to showcase reality, the pursuit for perfection still rages on. But I am all about living life to the fullest, smile when you’re happy, cry when you’re sad. The question then becomes, how do I preserve my existing canvas without having those lines becoming permanently etched prematurely? My top 2 problem areas are undereye wrinkles and those nasal labial lines… signs associated with smiling (the irony of it!), and now I think I’ve found the perfect solution with #Shiseido Vital-Perfection!
