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!

It is getting a little difficult for me to review skincare these days because my skin has been somewhat unstable for the past few months, and I keep waking up to fresh pimples no matter what I’m doing. It started around the time I received this set of products, and I put it aside in the hopes of giving it a 2nd trial, but my breakouts never stopped and now I’m not entirely sure if it was this that triggered it off to begin with. But instead of postponing things further, I thought I’d introduce this new range of whitening skincare from Albion today and let you decide for yourself.

I am fast becoming a convert of La Prairie products, not merely because they are so luxe (oh that they are!), nor the gorgeous packaging… but the products that I have tried so far seem to bridge both realms of skincare and makeup perfectly. When you are spending a pretty penny, it helps to know that the skincare goes to work deep inside for the long-run whilst still making you look instantly prettier. Likewise, makeup with actual accountable skincare ingredients does make a difference in this over-crowded market! I have been testing out 2 new additions to the La Prairie Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal collection, and would like to introduce them to you today.
