Advertorial: BeautyBiotics Dream Cream

Hello everyone!
Today I have a brand new range of products to share with you girls!

A little disclaimer here,
Although the products are send to me to try, I really did try out for about 3 weeks before writing up this review okay!!! So, it's not just some paid review. I promise! Special thanks to samplestore for this opportunities! 

BeautyBiotics is a new brand for me. Before this, I have never heard of this brand before.  So, what is BeautyBiotics about?

They are a new range of dermatological cosmetics that use NANO TECHNOLOGY to add on to their  products so that they will be more hydrating and not to forget about anti-aging properties!!
Doesn't it sound cool?! Nano technology! I have no idea what is that though but i know it is good for the skin because it help the ingredient to penetrate better and enhance skin cell regeneration!!

BeautyBiotics uses Light Infusion Technology too.
Not all  light are bad for skin especially the misconception of sunlight. Sunlight actually provide our skin with Vitamin D. Therefore girls, don't be afraid to be in the sun because you don't want to be tanned. Always wear a good sunblock!

BeautyBiotics is dermatologist tested for sensitive skin and specially made in Japan for Asian skin and have active ingredient that will help to :
  1. Regenerate skin elastin and collagen for plumped up softness
  2. Intensely hydrate for supple skin
  3. Improve skin radiance and clarity
  4. Effectively whiten for luminous, bright skin

Let's get started with my review shall we?

This is their UV White Nano Mineral Powder (SGD$49)
This powder contain Nano collagen, Hyaluronic acid and Alpha Arbutin formula which help to regenerate, brighten and hydrate skin. As you can see from the photo, it is very easy to apply. I use this as my sunblock and it work really well!
Have you ever seen a powder sunscreen before? I have never so this actually amuse me!!! It is very easy to reapply so I can definitely bring this out and touch up anything I want. 
So how much SPF is inside this small and awesome sunblock? SPF50/PA+++!! 
Isn't that awesome? Most importantly it doesn't cast any white cast if I take flash photo.

So, the next item will be their Dream Cream BB/CC cream (SGD$39)
I was so looking forward to try this because I have never use a CC cream before and I love BB cream. And this is a combination of both! 
This BB/CC cream is really hydrating and does not show any of my dry patch around my mouth area. 
The texture is smooth and thick. Definitely not sheer; maybe a middle coverage but buildable to full coverage if you want.

The coverage is so buildable that you can actually double it up as a concealer! Never know this is how I look while blending the cream. Haha don't you think it's quite comical ? 
Although the texture can be quite heavy, I can definitely not feel the "heaviness" on my face. 
Which is something I really like plus it help me save my concealer!

This small tube of BB/CC cream is actually very "powerful"! It's a 12-in-1 cream and filled with all the goodness that I have never seen or use on other BB cream. 
The 12 properties that is inside this small tube are hydrating, whitening, pore refinement, cell renewal, collagen regeneration, sebum control, anti-ance, wrinkle, ageing, itch, inflammation, UV protected (SPF40/PA+++) and lastly skin repair. 
Tell me have you ever see a cream that can does all this stuffs?!
I really like this product out of everything that was sent to me. Most importantly, it doesn't break me out and the shade was the right shade!
This product come in 3 shades fair, glitter and tan selling for SGD$39 which I find it pretty reasonable for a BB/CC cream.

Here are some before (left) and after (right) to show that the cream actually help to cover up pores! I just recovered from all the pimple outbreak so my skin is pretty clear now.

This is the last item and last step for my face makeup!
BB+ Nano Luminescence Mineral Pearl Powder (SGD$49)
I feel that this give me a very sheer and light coverage. 
Which doesn't bother me because I use this as a finishing powder so it's good that it is toward the sheer coverage. I definitely don't want to look as if I cake the whole face with powder. 
 photo SAM_3656.jpg  photo SAM_3663.jpg  photo SAM_3664.jpg  photo SAM_3665.jpg 
Normally, I don't use the puff that they give because I feel it harder to work with. 
I prefer using a brush to blend everything out evenly. 
However, you can definitely use the puff given to put on your makeup. It give off a nice finish and once again, this product contain SPF40/PA+++
 photo SAM_3670.jpg 
This is how it look like after applying the powder.
It make my pores look almost invisible and due to the light diffusing pearl crystal, it reflect and make my skin look so smooth~ 1 additional point to add on is, this powder is waterproof. You don't have to worry that the make up will "melt" during hot and humid day or caught in the rain.

The only downside for me is the shimmer. I don't really like shimmer product but not to worry if you don't like shimmer product, they come in 2 different finish; Shimmer and Matte. 
I'm so going to purchase the matte finish to try out once I'm done with this shimmer powder.

If you're interested in buying BeautyBiotic products, you can find them at any Watsons Singapore Outlet pretty soon!! Definitely give the BB/CC cream a try! It is exclusive to Watsons only! 
And if you want to find out more about their products or promotion, remember to like them on their Facebook page over here BeautyBiotic to get the latest update!

My perm hair care routine

Hello everyone!
Today, I'm going to share with you how I take care of my hair after digital perm.
For those who have no idea what is a digital perm, according to google,
A digital perm is a perm that uses hot rods with the temperature regulated by a machine with a digital display, hence the name.
After getting the perm, my hair has been really dry for the 1st few days.
I decided to purchase this set of expensive shampoo and conditioner.

I have always wanted to try Organix shampoo because they seem to be so nice!!!
So, I decided to head over to the nearest Watsons to get the shampoo and conditioner before my first wash after perm. I wanted to get the Macadamia oil however, the Watsons I went only left with this 2.

Anyway, after using up the whole bottle I really feel a different with my hair!
My hair become really really soft after using the Argan oil of morocco shampoo and it feel so clean. Although my hair is dry and damage to start with, I can definitely feel a different after using the shampoo. It feel like my hair has absorb all the nutrients and restore back to the healthy state.

Their cherry blossom ginseng conditioner smell really good! It smell really sweet and nice. Totally don't feel like washing off the conditioner because of the smell. I usually wash off my conditioner with cold water, so I have no idea is it because of that or the conditioner itself that make my hair feel extra smooth after washing.

The most important is even after I air dry my hair without any products or oils, they feel nice and shiny!
However, the shampoo and conditioner are really expensive. I'm using back my old shampoo and conditioner. Not too bad but I can definitely feel the different between normal shampoo and organix shampoo.

Definitely recommend this after you have chemically treated your hair and want it to stay healthy at least for the 1st few wash!

Normally, I am lazy to put any products on my hair. However after I perm my hair I began to really take good care and spam all the oils and products to make my hair stay healthy. 
Usually I will use my Argan oil from L'oreal on my hair tip to make it less fizzy. I gotten this styling oil from Avines. I got this from my local salon for $31. I really like how it's an oil and make my curl really define. I never use any styling products other than this oil. I can get really define and nice curl.
 photo SAM_3573.jpg 

Because that Avines oil is quite expensive, I'm trying to find an alternative and currently using this sea salt spray from Toni & Guy. This spray really give off a beachy waves and textures to the hair however it doesn't give much define to my curls. 
Still trying to find other better alternative products. Any recommendation? 

 photo SAM_3576.jpg 

Trying this hair vitamin from ellipse longgggg time ago. 
I manage to find it at my makeup tools box. Haha!
I don't like the smell of the oils but oh well, trying to finish using it!

 photo SAM_3575.jpg 

Before my perm, I never put any products on my hair during the night time. 
So after that, I began to use some products to maintain the "healthiness" of my hair. 
Essential damage care series is definitely my favourite drugstore hair products!
They are cheap and good and most importantly, they WORK!

As for the L'oreal Extraordinary oil does not belong to me. ;x 
I don't use it everyday because this belong to my sister. I really like this oil. It's not sticky and smell nice. Usually i will use either 1 of the product before I blow dry my hair. 
Most of the time my hair will dry nicely. 
Finally some products that were highly raves by many bloggers that actually works!  

 photo SAM_3582.jpg 

I just found out about this product recently and oh my gosh it feel so nice after using it!!!
This is the Marc Anthony Repairing Macadamia Oil Deep Healing conditioning treatment. 
You can use this product from the roots of your hair all the way to the tips. Leaving it for 3 to 7 minutes and wash it off. 

Totally have the "clean" finish and smell very nice after that! However, you can only use this product once a week and it's quite expensive. SGD$4 for 1 satchel. But if you really want to deep cleanse your hair, I will highly recommend this! 

 photo SAM_3558.jpg

I guess that's the end of my hair care routine for my hair perm.
Other than that, I don't think there's anything special about it.
Just thought of sharing some of my new found hair products because normally I don't pay attention to it and just use the cheapest or most value for money products.

Anyway, it's back to the "economic" hair products now.. HAHAHA
Jobless girl is poor :(

Till then,
xoxo everyone!

Hello everyone ~
Finally I'm here to update about Chinese new year!~
How's everyone chinese new year?? Did you guys get a lot of red packets (Ang Bao)?
I can't exactly remember what did I do, but i definitely enjoy eating all the good foods and steamboat!

Is it just me or is CNY getting more and more boring?
I mean, other than eating and gambling I don't really find it interesting anymore.
Perhaps is because I'm old now :(
Don't get to play all the childish games and stuffs?

Either way, I had a great Chinese new year break before school start!
But now,  it's a torture now :(

Sorry for the lacks of update but I really need to rush a lot for my school works.
Will try to stick to having a new post every week!

Till then,
