MrLens #sp


Not sure if anyone still remembers, I previously mentioned about how I have perfect eyesight yet I am a frequent wearer of contact lens. This is something my father will never understand, the things we girls do to make ourselves look better haha

Contact lenses play a huge part of many people's lives and we all know they are not particularly cheap in Singapore so I am really glad to be able to share about Mr Lens today.  

Mr Lens is a Malaysia based online retailer that has a wide range of contact lens. Though they are based in Malaysia, I am absolutely impressed by their efficiency. They are currently working together with DHL Express for deliveries to Singapore and I got my package 1 day after it's despatched from their warehouse! 

It's really pricey to purchase daily lenses from the optical shops in our local malls. It's also very troublesome having to get our eyes check whenever we visit new shops just to purchase the lenses. At times, I would still have to order them and wait a few days before I can collect it from the shop. 

Who still does this anyway? 

After being recommended to Mr Lens, I no longer have to travel all the way to this particular shophouse that I usually frequent because of their cheaper prices. I can have the luxury to stay home to order it today and it will reach me the next day.

Yes i'm not kidding when I say it only takes a day to reach from Malaysia to Singapore. It was despatched from their warehouse on the 7th and I received it at my place on the 8th. It's even more efficient than most local stores isnt it? 

Their prices are also up to 50% cheaper which is one important factor to me. 
I was initially pretty skeptical about buying lenses online but not to worry, they do have the familiar brands that we have in Singapore like FreshKon & Acuvue. I did a quick check on the manufacturer of Fresh Kon lenses and saw it's from the same SG supplier as well :) 

There are all sorts of cosmetic lenses out there in the market but I have only tried and trust a couple of brands out there. These are some of my picks that can be found on site :) 

I have been using Fresh Kon for years and I love how my eyes felt very comfortable with their lenses. It's soft and a breeze to wear and remove them even after long hours! 

After reading the good reviews on Mr Lens, I have decided to be a little more adventurous this time and try out this Fresh Look lenses that can only be found in Malaysia.  

Here's how I look wearing Fresh Look grey lenses, I didnt feel any discomfort and the lenses seems pretty natural as well. 

This Refill Express is one function that I absolutely like about the site. Since Mr Lens is all about fast delivery, affordable prices and user friendly interface, aint nobody got time to look for the products one by one every few months! Simply click on it, and your previous order will be reflected and you can simply cart them out :) 

Best price, fast delivery. What more can I ask for? 
Hop over to their site and visit to find out yourself :)

Hello Kitty x Rosette (sp)

For all fans of Hello Kitty, rejoice! 
Introducing a new collaboration between Rosette and Sanrio, the limited edition Hello Kitty Facial Wash. This has got to be the cutest cleansing product I've seen in awhile. 

It has just been launched in all SASA, Watsons and BHG ALT concept stores.



The green bottle is the Hello Kitty Uji-Matcha Kintoki Facial Wash, it's mainly made with Matcha Powder which hydrates and locks in moisture into your skin.
It also contains red bean power which gently scrubs and purifies the surface of the skin while washes away clogged impurities in pore.



Made with traditional Japanese ingredients for more beautiful silky soft skin with every wash. Pore tightening face wah formula made with Japan-grown UJI green tea and Azuki bean powder flushes out unsightly pores, leaving them clean and fresh. Smooth dense foam leaves skin feeling refreshed and baby smooth. 

Benefits of Green Tea
  • Antioxidant
  • Reduces Dark Spots on Face
  • Treats Ace and Pimples
  • Reduces Wrinkles 
  • Improves Skin Complexion
Benefits of Red Bean
  • Brightens skin
  • Anti-Aging
  • Cures Acne

I love the lather and my face feels really clean after using it. It didnt leave any residue and wasnt too drying for me as well. It has this gentle uji matcha scent that I really like.
 I have been using the previous pasta facial wash from Rosette too and I just cant seem to finish it. The fact that the retail price is $9.90 and could last me for so long, great product with great price!

You just have to squeeze 1-2cm onto palm and lather with water like any regular facial wash
It's gentle to all skin types and contains no mineral oil, no alcohol and free of parabens.



Next up, the Hello Kitty Yuzu-Hachimitsu Facial Wash. 
It's mainly made with Yuzu fruits which infused with ceramide to protect against dryness, keeping skin hydrated and moist after every wash. Also contains Honey which leaves skin feeling dewy fresh after every wash.

Like the Matcha wash, it's gentle to all skin types and contains no mineral oil, no alcohol and free of parabens.


Made with traditional Japanese ingredients for more beautiful, silky soft skin with every wash. Dryness-fighting face wash formula made with Japan-grown yuzu fruit extract and honey hydrates and smoothens chronically rough and dry skin.

Benefits of Yuzu
  • Antioxidant
  • Protection against UV Rays
  • Brighten skin
  • Reduces wrinkles 
  • Improves skin complexion

Benefits of Royal Honey
  • Acne Treatment
  • Long-lasting Hydration
  • Scar Fader

Can I just say how much I love the smell of this facial wash? It smelt exactly like my favorite Yuzu drink, like a freshly-cut Yuzu citrus. It definitely makes me look forward to washing my face daily. After one wash, my face felt hydrated and it wasnt tight nor drying. Springy, creamy foam leaves skin feeling dewy fresh and a youthful bounce. 


I wish I could easily say if I prefer the Matcha or the Yuzu facial wash because both works well for me.
So if you have acne prone or oily skin, I would recommend you to go for the green tube which is the Matcha one as it contains red bean powder that works very well for acne. While if you have dull and dry skin, you can pick the Yuzu one.
It's retailing at $10.90 which makes perfect Xmas gifts for your friends who are fans of Hello Kitty!

Well you know where to get these for ladies who are looking for an affordable yet gentle to skin facial wash :)

Scalp Revival Spa - Salon Vim

So I just ended my 8 sessions of Scalp Revival Spa with Salon Vim recently and I'm really excited to share with those who's been having hair issues like I am. 
The other day I was mentioning to Cheryl (marketing of Salon Vim) on how i feel that my hair is getting thinner and the amount of hair on the comb whenever I comb them can be terrifying. 
It didnt really bother me until I went for the air fringe look and realised I could actually see obvious empty spots from the front.

Meh.

The specialist at Salon Vim will firstly scan your scalp to diagnose the issue, you will also be able to see and compare the before and after scalp sessions. 


Here are some of the steps which varies for different scalp problems. 
  • Opening massage
  • High frequency comb that removes dead cells and kill bacteria so as to better absorb all the goodies afterwards. It does sound like you're being electrocuted but dont worry i didnt feel much discomfort! It also effectively treats dandruff.
  • Water spray gun that was used to soften hair follicles and dead skin that has been blocking new hair growth from the roots
  • Treatment for moisturizing oily scalp
  • Red-light micro current adjust oil secretions and accelerate blood circulation to deliver oxygen and nutrition to hair follicles which results in improved hair quality.

Cold infrared to allow the densifique to be easily absorbed and promote hair growth. Densifique is a hair density activator that stimulates the hair to leave it denser and stronger!


Alot of us mostly only care about how our hair looks and often neglect our scalp, the treatments that we usually do in salons are actually for the hair and not scalp. 
I was definitely one of you till I realize this hair loss issue i was going through. 
So glad that I started this journey early and was able to rectify my scalp problem before it became too late. 


Now just look at the amount of new baby hair growing: 

 If you look at the chart closely, you'd see the difference and the amount of new hair growing in a particular area from my initial session towards the 6-8 sessions. 

 


I've got to emphasis that the relaxing spa room at Salon Vim is absolutely therapeutic and the whole process is truly shiok. I always enjoy my sessions there after a day at work, to sit back and let the therapist work their magic. So if you are having scalp issues, it's time to embark on this Scalp Revival Spa journey with Salon Vim. 

Here's what I had been diligently applying the past few months. The Kerastase Densifique home care is for used to increase the look of hair density. Simply section your towel dried hair and press the applicator to dispense the treatment over your scalp. Next is to massage your scalp with your fingers for it to be easily absorbed and we're done! I must say it makes my hair smells extremely good for the rest of the day too.


The good news is, consultation is FREE and there is a 50% off for first timers on your first session and the good people at Salon Vim will be extending a  $20 service voucher and a free 30ml scalp shampoo when you quote my name ;)  


Big thank you to Salon Vim for the opportunity to go on this journey to thicker and volumize hair, yay!

25092016; Lucinda's wedding


YAS i finally got down to blogging about the sister's big day aka the most stressful day of my life. 
How is it even possible that i got so nervous i couldn't get proper sleep the night before? Im not even the bride man, what a joke 
I guess it was because I was the main person in charge for my side and I just had to make sure everything goes in plan and was perfect for the both of them. 
I'm so sure I won't even get this stressed up if I ever get married one day. 
Soooooooooooo glad that it's over and the entire day went by like a breeze~~~

I'm truly happy for the both of them for moving on to the next phase of life after being together for 8 years. It's amazing how they found someone that complement each other so well and kept that spark all the way. Now I just can't wait to be an aunt!! 

Hens night pics first:

Customised balloons by: Looney Bloons :)


Lol

UberEATS rocks, no delivery fee no minimum order. PERFECT 

All the St Nicks girls and 1 extra 



Actual day:
The day started at 4am when Roseanne (lu's MUA) came over and the bridesmaids, at 5am. It's quite amazing how i could last till 1am after the wedding ended, without any naps in between. Someone give this girl a medal!

 Thank god the rain stopped in time and Pixioo managed to get some nice pictures of everyone~


Checked into Westin Singapore

Had to do makeup by the sink because of the lighting haha
Here's my MUA, Claire from The Glow Beauty Bar which I engaged from the Vanitee App a few days before the wedding. Vanitee is a one stop shop beauty service booking app that takes care of your hair, makeup, nails etc with independent artists to choose from.

There are tons of MUAs on the app but I strongly recommend Claire. Other than her makeup skills, I like how all her products are very new and clean and that is very important for us girls. Cos that means we don't have to worry about any possible outbreaks with dirty brushes!

Thank you for giving me the Fall smokey-eye look, it was in a burgundy shade which I never thought I will be able to pull off. Gotta love the Hollywood-glam hair as well. The whole night I received nothing but praises from this makeover by Claire. Go book her for your weddings, D&Ds or events from the Vanitee app now!
