Before motherhood, I had a skincare regime that I followed and kept up – cleanser, scrub, toner, cream, eye cream, mask, etc etc etc. Now having a 4yo in the house means she would knock on my bathroom door, yelling “Mom, can I have a cookie before dinner?” My home pampering time is practically zero. I’m sure there are Mommies out there have had such experience. We would scramble, slap on some cream and done. I have came out with this list so to make skincare routine a lot easier.
Believe it or not, I started writing this article months ago. Hence, the photos are not exactly the most updated of my current skincare routine. Continue reading
Living in a country that’s humid all year round, I have (almost) given up searching for a conditioner that conditions and yet doesn’t weigh my fine fizzy hair down. Hence when a friend recommended Percy & Reed’s hair products to me, I was not really keen. I mean I had tried oil, serum, volumising shampoo and conditioner, nothing seems to help! That explains why I bought a travel-sized conditioner instead of full-sized. Continue reading
As a sufferer of eczema and skin sensitivity, I’m constantly on the lookout of lotions, creams, cleansers and body washes that are gentle on the skin. If a body product seems to aggravate my eczema, I’ll move on to a new product. I’m pretty sure this NIVEA In-Shower Skin Conditioner isn’t a new product and I probably had walked pass it gazillion of times. What triggered me to try out this product was a photo of it on Instagram when I was searching hashtag #nivea. I thought why not give it a try!
Recently, I looked through the photos of my girl and myself when she was barely a year old. Oh gosh! I looked really drained, tired and aged. I neglected to look after myself. Mainly because there was a shift in my role in my household – I had became a Mom. My priority was my girl. I was adjusting to the change. Many times, I just didn’t feel like dolling up when I was out with her. That was because – I believe all Moms will agree – I simply had no time! Getting the little one ready to head out involved a lot of time and energy. By the time she was ready, we just wanted to quickly hop into our car and go go go! Hence, I came out with this list for all Mommies out there, especially first-time Moms. Well, at least it’s my essentials when I’m in a rush. The goal of this list is to make you look refresh and put together with 6 essential makeup, and be done in 10 minutes! Continue reading

They have them in wine and plum too! Practically something for everyone! Continue reading
If I remember correctly, Ettusais Lip Essence has been around since 2007, it has been one of Ettusais’ best seller products. I bought my first tube of lip essence in 2011 in Taiwan. I was trying to clock a certain amount to claim the tax back at the department store. Actually every time I walked by Ettusais counter, I’ll stopped and looked at them, pondering whether to buy. Well, you’ve to understand that I have got too many lip balms and products to finish! I still do. As for the lip essence stick in SWATi design… isn’t the design looks so adorable!! Continue reading
MY FIRST VISIT TO THE ALBION COUNTER
I came across ALBION on some Taiwanese beauty bloggers’ sites and beauty sites, its Skin Conditioner was given quite good reviews. I had seen it sold on Adambeauty.com. Back then, it was not available in SG hence I did not want to risk purchasing online without testing it out. Couple of months ago, I was chatting with my colleague on skincare products, it was then I realized that ALBION was in SG – one and only retail counter at Takashimaya! Continue reading
