After giving birth to 2 kids via C-section and putting on a considerable amount of weight, my tummy has gone thru a lot.
I have a very unsightly double bulge and was looking for solutions to help my mum tum. I wasn't open to surgery for now and needed a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment that would not affect my breastfeeding. I read a few reviews from fellow mummy bloggers about CoolSculpting and was super intrigued about it.
I met up with Dr. Terence Tan and he shared that CoolSculpting is a non-surgical, non-invasive, no downtime fat reduction treatment. It is the only USA FDA-approved fat freezing treatment that uses the concept of cryolipolysis to freeze and destroy unwanted fat cells, which are then disposed from the body naturally.
He also shared that the treatment removes 20-25% of fat cells in the treated area each time. The science behind it is our body is unable to produce any new fat cells after five years of age. The fat cells that die during the fat freezing process will be gone forever which is why CoolSculpting is ideal to be used to remove unwanted fat which can't be removed through spot toning exercises.
Some areas that can be treated are the abdomen, love handles, inner and outer thighs, arms, bra fat, back, banana roll (butt cheeks), knees, cheeks and even the double chin!
This is a Womanly Wednesdays - Beauty and hiaonessentry under my themed blogposts! For more info about this Singapore Lifestyle Blog themed posts, do read the entry here.
The kind folks from Etude House sent over Etude House Loving Days Fragrance Body Sets.
I received the Blooming Love (a floral and fruity scent with top notes from Peonies and Roses), Sweet Sparkling (a citrus floral scent with top notes from citrus flashes) and Cool Sugar (a fresh fruity scent with top notes from watery fruits) Body Lotion and Body Wash Gift Sets.
Each gift set retails at $43.90 and is perfect as a gift to a loved one. My personal favourite has to be the Sweet Sparkling set as it really has a rather zesty and refreshing scent!

Skai and I was invited by the kind folks of Spa Detour for a couple massage. I had actually wanted to host a mystery makan + activity with the girls there but our scheduled all clashed 🙁
So I decided to go for a couple spa session instead! Plus I've been suffering from very bad backaches recently and I needed a massage like pronto!
Spa Detour is actually by the same folks from Duck and Hippo! I spoke to the manager in charge that day and he mentioned that Spa Detour was conceived to offer a place for a great break from the busy hustles of life. Basically, a hideout, a breakaway where there isn't any hard selling of scary packages.
Here are some pictures of Spa Detour! They are a themed spa with very interesting decor!
Personally I really liked the whole look of the place! As I'm currently researching about the various themes and styles for my upcoming BTO (an entry will be up on that soon!), I've been bio-ing places with Modern Industrial styles!
They offer various services like a fish spa, sleep spa, full body massages, foot reflexology, facials, neck and shoulder massages, manicures and pedicures in a screening room!
We absolutely adore the whole look of Spa Detour!
We were ushered into the Rainforest room which was a couple room. I had booked the Deep Scrub and Aromatherapy Massage for both of us.
More info on both services:
Deep Scrub, 30 mins for $73
Scrub your way to smoother skin with our scrubs infused with lavender essential oils. Choose from the cream based scrub for gentle exfoliation, or a mineral salt scrub should you desire for something stronger. Body scrubs help to remove the dead skin layer and expose youthful looking skin. Use a scrub to remove skin that turned rough and dull due to pollution or sun exposure and feel fresh and rejuvenated again. Lavender is an excellent soothing agent, making it the favored choice of scrub for those suffering from stress, tension and anxiety.
Aromatherapy Massage, 60 mins for $127
Ideal for a time-out relaxation after a long day of whatever it is that you do. Carefully blended essential oil of bergamot and lavender is applied in long sweeping strokes to warm the skin. Expect deeper massage, rolling and squeezing of the skin and underlying muscles to lull you into a relaxing state.
We were in extreme bliss. Skai enjoyed it so much that he had wanted to extend the massage! Unfortunately we had booked a movie after that and couldn't do so 🙁
After the massage and scrub, we chilled out at the cafe area.
We ordered a slice of cheesecake and chocolate cake. A real pleasant area to enjoy some light snacks!
Overall, we had an extremely great experience and would be back really soon for another massage! I think they'll be very suitable for Bridal Spa parties, Couple Massages, Birthday parties, Hen's nights and Pampering sessions for Mother - Daughter day out!
If you'll like to check out Spa Detour, here are the details!
They are offering a 1 for 1 promo currently! All you'll have to do is quote B141!
Do take note that while I was invited to experience their services, I was not obligated to even review them. This isn't an advertorial. Opinions are of my own.
#nadskai are looking at doing more stuff as a couple together. I think it's really fun and different! Also helps us grow and understand each other more! If you do know of other fun activities, do comment here! After all, I don't believe Dating in Singapore is boring!
