[REVIEW] Althea Beauty Box – Bbo Song aka Baby Soft Skin

[REVIEW] Althea Beauty Box – Bbo Song aka Baby Soft Skin

I’ve always been so envious of South Koreans for their smooth flawless skin! I aspire to have my skin as flawless as theirs but the humid weather in SG only amplifies my pores and oil production, especially the area around my nose! Luckily, Althea has sent over their Bbo Song Beauty Box to save me of pores and greasy oily skin.

Wait, but first, what’s Althea?

Althea is a leading KBeauty site with over 150 Korean beauty brands on board!

The Althea Box

It is Althea’s line of limited edition beauty boxes, specially curated by the fairy team in Seoul. The boxes are based on specific themes and each box can hold anywhere from 6 – 12 full-size products depending on the theme and value.

Althea releases 2 Althea Boxes every month. But the downside is these beauty boxes are limited in quantity (while stocks last) on a first come first serve basis. The Althea Box is a hit among fans and gets sold out really quick.

[REVIEW] Creme Simon – New range of Supplements Les Remedes 2017

[REVIEW] Creme Simon – New range of Supplements Les Remedes 2017

I recently had the opportunity to attend the launch of the brand new Creme Simon Supplements Les Remedes and i liked the supplements so much that I decided to do a blog post on it ūüôā

But first, I know you’re wondering..

What is Creme Simon?

Made in 1860. Made in France. 

Founded by Joseph Simon, a visionary pharmacist at the end of the XIX century since 1860, the brand understands the fact that skin, beauty and health are part of a whole, and that skincare has its limits.

Creme Simon Teas & Supplements

But skincare is only cosmetic. Diet, stress, sleep, hormones, pollution and lifestyle choices all have an accumulated impact on the skin we have.  Because the health of your skin is a reflection of your global physical and psychological health, they have also developed nutritional complementary solutions to sustain a holistic approach to beauty. From organic diabetic-friendly detoxifying teas free of caffeine, added sugar, flavourings and colourings, to preservative-free, antioxidant-rich natural supplements suitable for vegans, they believe the beauty of your skin relies on your global physical and psychological health. Because how we feel, what we do, affect how we feel and look on the outside.

Creme Simon Supplements Les Remedes

Their supplements contain 0% fillers, preservatives, colorings, allergans, gluten, bovine, lactose, sodium, hormones and GMOs. Suitable for vegetarians and vegans.

We will deep dive into the 3 brand new supplements here!

  1. Rest – for Restful Sleep & Jet Lags
  2. Beauty – Anti-Oxidant Rich Supplement for Skin, Hair & Nails
  3. Feel – Daily Multivitamin for Mental Alertness & Energy

Sounds like i need all 3 of them as i have been having trouble sleeping at night, and in the day i feel really lethargic. and of course beauty, to fight the signs of aging.

[Review] Gelish Manicure with Nail Art by Niu Nails, a home based salon

It’s that time again where I’m caught taking photos of handheld items with bare and unkempt nails. Yeah, I am in dire need of a gelish manicure.

I did some research online and came across Niu Nails, a home based salon. I was quite impressed with their nail art portfolio and they had many good reviews so I decided to try them out.

It’s my first time having my nails done at a home based salon!

[BEAUTY REVIEW] Labottach V-up, T-zone & eye patch from Korea

Recently entering the shores of Singapore is Labottach, a pharmaceutical and cosmetics company from Korea! Although they are new to Singapore, they are not new to the skincare world.

Labottach:

WooShin Labottach was first established in 1992 in Korea and has been focusing on research and developing pharmaceutical and cosmetic products over the past 20 years. After successfully exported their products to Europe, Korea, China, Taiwan, they are now launching their products in Singapore!

Labottach Skincare:

  • Exclusive Innovated material and formulation with our own R&D Center
  • Dermatologist tested in Germany (suitable for sensitive skin & prenant woman)
  • Products are clinically proven effective

I was really intrigued by Labottach’s skin care products as, in comparison to the typical sheet mask that lasts for just 20mins,¬†they last for 6 – 8 hours.¬†Also, all the ingredients that they use are¬†free of parabens, phenoxyethanol, silicones, sulfates, alcohol, mineral oil.

[REVIEW] Sombre + Balayage Hair¬†Color at Kenjo Salon

[REVIEW] Sombre + Balayage Hair¬†Color at Kenjo Salon

Very desperately in need of a root touch up as well as toning my bright yellow hair color down, I decided to try out a new salon, Kenjo hair salon, after reading many good reviews on them. They are located conveniently at Plaza Singapura too!

Kenjo Hair Salon

Kenjo hair salon is a korean salon with a combination of stylists from Taiwan, SG and Korea.

Check out my regrowth! The lighter parts were from lightening my hair in Feb and the medium brown was from the pudding hair dye done end of April. I have about 3.5mths of black regrowth.

I wanted to do an ash shade to tone down the yellow from my hair as well as try out pastel highlights cause they’re so trendy right now!

My 10 step korean skincare routine (free of: parabens, phenoxyethanol, silicones, sulfates, alcohol, mineral oil) 2017

If you have read my previous article, you will know that I did a massive disposal of my skincare when I found out that they contained harsh ingredients that are not so good for our skin like; parabens, sulfates, alcohol, mineral oil, phenoxyethanol and silicones.

My previous 2016 post here:

My 10 step korean skincare routine (free of: parabens, phenoxyethanol, silicones, sulfates, alcohol, mineral oil)

I am so glad that us consumers are becoming more and more savvy about the skincare products that we purchase these days and we are starting to look into product ingredients carefully before purchasing.

I have only been using clean products that are free of parabens, phenoxyethanol, mineral oils, alcohol, silicones (really hard to avoid in moisturisers), sulfates, and etc. I am happy to say that my skin is really stable now vs its previous erratic self. Although I might get the occasional pimple from having too much chocolate, it has never been better in my life!

Searching for products that are free of the list of ingredients above hasn’t been easy. Products that label themselves as ‘paraben free’ may sometimes still contain phenoxyethanol. And it is super hard to find moisturisers that do not contain silicones.

After much searching, here is my 2nd compiled multi step Korean skincare routine!

Beauty Review: Ezn Pudding Ammonia Free hair color in Smokey Ash Beige 

Beauty Review: Ezn Pudding Ammonia Free hair color in Smokey Ash Beige 

Recently, my brown hair color has faded and turned very yellow. I wanted to tone the yellow down to something more ash, so I started the search for an ash hair dye.  I did some research online, and i chanced upon the Ezn Shaking Pudding Hair Color. On a side note, if one were to browse for hair dyes in a physical shop, I think they would have totally walked past the Ezn pudding hair color because well, the box looks more like jelly than hair dye!

They have so many different shades of ash to choose from, and all of them are so appealing, so much that I wanted to buy them all! On top of that, a bigger factor in my decision to pick this Pudding Hair Color is because it is AMMONIA FREE! Gorgeous ash color + Ammonia free? I was sold! (Maybe also the fact that it is a korean hair dye made me more bias towards it :P)
