As a full time working mother, I hardly have time for myself. Coupled with the fact that Aidan is sticky, and I'm a clingy mama, I hardly find time to blog, exercise or elaborate skincare routines. It’s really tough being a working mother. In addition to being a mother – which is tough enough as is! – I’m also working at the same time.

When I do things such as head out for a dinner with girlfriends or out for a yoga class, I'll feel extremely guilty leaving Aidan behind with my husband/mother-in-law/mother. It feels like I'm neglecting him to enjoy, you know?

Same goes with say blogging at home or taking time to do elaborate skincare routines. When Aidan sees me and if I'm not attending to him, he tends to cry badly. Especially now that he is teething. He is extremely cranky.

I'm not complaining, I enjoy every moment with him. Just that, I hardly have time for myself. But yet, I feel 'sad' that I no longer have time for myself. My skin, nails and hair has taken such a backseat as compared to last time. I never ever had my roots grow out back then nor have I ever not indulged in a good mask weekly. Working late nights and staying up late for baby has worsened my eye bags and dark eye circles. I also find that my frown lines have deepened – this must be because I’m under constant stress and worries most of the time.

Now? I touch up my hair like once in 3 months? (in comparison to every 3 weeks back then) and I have not seen a facial mask since I gave birth. I mean, how the heck can I ever find time to lie back and relax for a good twenty minutes? LOL. I also feel that my skin has looked a tad worse for wear these days. :(

I was glad to have been introduced to the Olay's latest launch, the Olay Regenerist Miracle Duo. The duo consists of the Regenerist Miracle Boost Youth Pre-Essense and the Olay Regenerist Micro-sculpting cream.

What I like about these products is that it's easy and fast to use.

The Olay Regenerist Miracle Boost Youth Pre-Essence

IMG_1149

It's unique auto-dropper packaging ensures the exact and right amount of pre-essence is delivered in every single application. No mess at all!

The Pre-Essence is designed to boost the penetration of anti-aging actives of your moisturiser to increase skin cell metabolism and renewal for stunning, youthful skin that looks up to 10 years younger.

The first drop starts renewal of a million surface cells and helps visibly reduce fine lines and wrinkles, pores and firms the skin.

Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream

IMG_1157

Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream is Olay's most advanced and award-winning best selling Regenerist anti-aging cream.

I read that it is the result of over 50 years of Olay research and formulated with the most concentrated Amino-Peptide Complex and Hydra-Firming Complex to lift, firm and micro-sculpt your look for younger looking skin.

I used this after using the Olay Regenerist Miracle Boost Youth Pre-Essence! Aside from renewing the skin's surface layer, it also helps reducing wrinkles and fine lines. It also helps hydrates the skin to help plump and firm skin! Perfect for my dry skin!

IMG_4011

Can't wait to see how my skin will improve after prolong usage of the products!

The Olay products that I've shared is available in popular stores such as Guardian and Watsons stores, and also here on Lazada!

Thank you Nuffnang and Olay for sending these products to me!

By the way, I did a simple video for Olay recently. Do check it out here!

3 years ago, I visited Allure Beauty with BFF to get my eyebrows embroidered. I never regretted that decision. This time, I visited Allure Beauty once again to get my brows embroidered once again courtesy of Absolute PR.

I felt that my previous embroidery had faded to a brownish red colour then and was a bit too thin for me. This time, I decided to ask for a much darker colour and also for thicker brows.

I visited their West Mall outlet which was a much newer and cosier outlet.

A pic of my unruly brows.  I prefer thicker brows now, maybe due to the korean brows trend?

As per my previous embroidery session, Allure Beauty shared that brows frame a person’s face. A person without the right brows looks untidy and less than groomed. It is also the most prominent feature to one’s face. Using the brows and combining it with The Golden Ratio, it brings balance and proportion. The Golden Ratio also brings one a step closer to beauty perfection and harmonizes the rest of the features together brilliantly. The ratio of the longer side to the shorter or also known as The Golden Ratio was widely used by renowned artists such as Leonardo Da Vinci and architects to achieve perfection in their masterpiece. Now Allure Beauty incorporates it in their work of eyebrow embroidery.

Just like to remind everyone about the misconceptions of Eyebrow Embroidery once again.

  • Eyebrow Embroidery is NOT the same as Eyebrow Tattoo.
  • Eyebrow Tattoo is a permanent method which involves the injection of ink into the dermis layer of one’s skin. Overtime, the colour will change and some people end up with greenish/bluish eyebrows.
  • Eyebrow Embroidery is a semi-permanent method. The ink is only injected into the top layer of one’s skin. Overtime, we “shed” our skin and thus the eyebrow embroidery will fade off naturally after 2 years. (Depending on individual)
  • Eyebrow Embroidery is not as painful as tattoo. While there is a slight pain, it is definitely bearable.

As per my last session, the lovely Ms Joey Tee would be handling the eyebrow embroidery session for me again.

However this time, they applied the numbing cream for 20 minutes before shaping my brows.

Joey trimmed my brows, shaped and drew my brow according to her recommendations. We had a discussion and she felt with my weight loss (she noticed! hehee), I could carry off a different eyebrow shape! We had a few changes here and she tweaked it till I was comfortable with the brows drawn.

She was very patient and always checked with me to ensure I was comfortable with the suggestions.

Presenting the drawn brows! Super duper neat!

I was ushered into a private room where Joey mixed and customised an eyebrow colour for me. She also shared with me that a new blade is used for each customer. There is no sharing of blades at all. Basically the consultant will use the blade to pick up some ink and make little cuts (it sounds worse than it is) into your skin. As it is the top layer of one’s skin and as there is anesthetic cream applied, there is only a slight pain. For some reason, this session was more painful than my previous session 3 years ago. But definitely bearable.

After that, I was brought outside once again where Joey helped to do minor touchups.

My end result! It was a little bit red but definitely wasn't as bad as last time!

Thank you Joey!

This time, I healed much better. There was very little scabbing and it didn't turn out lapixiaoxing brows too!

My brows a week after embroidery!

After the first touch up! LOVE IT!

Here are some after care tips.

  • The colour would fade about 50 – 70% within the first two weeks. But not to worry, there will be a touch up session.
  • While the colour fades, there will be slight scabbing, please do NOT peel the scabs.
  • Avoid contact with water for the first week.
  • Avoid scrubbing of brows for the first week.
  • Avoid whitening creams on the brows for the first week.
  • Apply the anti-scar cream diligently 3 – 5 times a day for the first week.

The kind folks from SK-II sent a lovely #happyparcelday sometime ago. Knowing that I will be having my wedding dinner next year (1st March 2014), they sent me the SK-II Bridal Glow Set.

I was elated upon receiving the set as I was a huge fan of SK-II. I was introduced to SK-II almost three years ago by my colleagues Jem and Christine. They swore by the Facial Treatment Essence and I was won over by their testimonials. I have been using the Facial Treatment Essence since!

As someone who actually uses SK-II before receiving this gift set, I knew that it'll work. Afterall, my complexion was spotless and I thought that I looked well during my ROM day.

Pic from my ROM entry.

Of course as a bride, no expense should be spared planning for that special day. Be it, planning from the banquet to the photographers to choosing your lovely bridesmaids. But most of all, you should look great! I went for a few pampering sessions myself before my ROM. I had taken collagen like a good 6 months before my ROM, also I used products such as my Facial Treatment Essence, went for Ganbanyoku to ensure there isn't no water retention to going for good massages to destress myself.

But of course, a great skincare routine is much needed. SK-II has launched the SK-II Bridal Glow Set to help achieve the bridal glow in just 14 days using 5 easy steps!

Step 1 - Use the SK-II Facial Treatment Clear Lotion to help remove dirt and dead skin cells. This gentle lotion also helps leaves skin clean, lively and conditioned! It is important to remove dead skin cells and dirt to ensure that your skin is ready to absorb all of your skincare products!

Step 2 - The SK-II Facial Treatment Mask is well known to be an intensive moisture boosting mask. With just one usage, you'll notice your skin noticeably radiant, soft and crystal clear.

Step 3 - There's a reason why I kept using the SK-II Facial Treatment Essence for almost 3 years. While I did not notice extreme radiance after usage, I noticed that my skin is more moisturised and I have less blemishes. The "miracle water" contains more than 90% Pitera and help's maintain the skin's natural renewal cycle it's optimum condition. The smell can be a bit strong but I got used to it.

Step 4 - I used the SK-II Cellumination Essence EX and noticed brighter skin afterwards. However, I only noticed the difference after 4-5 weeks.

Step 5 - As a finishing move, use the SK-II Cellumination Deep Surge EX as a daily moisturiser. It helps balance skin tone and increases hydration.

I really liked that the SK-II Bridal Glow Set came with a 3-in-1 Electric Beauty Bath Set to help exfoliate my skin. The Bridal Glow Set is retailing at S$382 at selected SK-II counters (Takashimaya, Tangs Orchard, Tangs Vivocity, Metro Paragon, Metro Woodlands, Isetan Scotts, Isetan Tampines, Isetan Serangoon, Isetan Katong, Robinsons Centrepoint, Robinsons Raffles City, BHG Bugis, OG People’s Park) and is available while stocks lasts.

Thank you SK-II for the lovely Bridal Glow Set!
