The Most Efficient Skincare Product from The Face Inc

Imagine a Face Primer that tightens your skin in just 15 mins and an Eye Cream that lifts your eyes within 30 seconds. 

Wow, that's such an impressive claim.


Introducing the all new Primer Mist and Eye Lift by The Face Inc which states that they can do the above. 




A closer look at the products. As you can see, the Primer Mist comes in a set of 3 x 15ml tubes. As for the Eye Lift, they come in a box of 16 x 1ml vials. 

According to the Face Inc:

"Primer Mist by The Face Inc is a lightweight hydration face mist that works to smooth and tighten in just 15 seconds, and provides an instant hydration boost of up to 15 times.
This all-in-one formulation gives you all the benefits of priming, hydration and tightening. The Face Inc Primer Mist boosts the skin’s natural hydration with proprietary botanical extracts and a weightless blend of natural moisture preserving ingredients, delivering an all-day moisturised feel and plump appearance.
Created by dermatologists and researchers, Eye Lift's advance formula works by almost immediately restoring lost collagen in your skin. A proprietary blend of botanical extracts enhance the effects of the serum: smooths and tightens skin; reduces dark eye circles and puffiness; reduces inflammation, softens fines lines and wrinkles and noticeably tones the skin. Further infused with peptides, Eye Lift also refines pores, improves skin hydration and boost elasticity."
The Spokesperson for Face Inc is Chris Tong and she has really amazing skin. Yup, we have the honour to see her in person and boy am I smitten by her beauty. She did mentioned how the Eye Lift was her fav as instant result could be seen in reducing her eye bags. 

Well, I don't have eye bags (thankfully) thus I couldn't vouch how effective the Eye Lift was in lifting the under eye area. However I do love how emollient the cream is as well as how easily it absorbs into my skin. And I'm happy to report that I did not get any tiny bumps (a result of using products that are too heavy for the eye area) with this product. So far so good I'd say. 



When I first use the primer, I was intrigued by the nifty packaging that requires some twisting to reveal its nozzle spray. A carefully thought product indeed as it prevents users from accidentally pressing down onto it. 





A clear watery substance is dispensed upon spritzing. I spritz 3 times onto my face: the forehead area and each side of the cheeks. Then I gently massage the product into my skin for absorption. I wish the size of droplet could be smaller though to save me the time and hassle of working the products into the skin. 

I did felt tightening around my cheek area after the product is fully absorbed. Although I did not see reduction of my pores, I'm happy to report that my foundation stayed on pretty well when I used this primer. 

Another thing that I like about this primer that is incredibly light weight (because its water based) and I did not feel any greasiness/stickiness on the skin. This is important to me for a primer because when you are living in hot humid country, you really don't want anything that's sticky and suffocating. 

I honestly think that The Face Inc has some really cool and effective products and I'm glad these 2 were introduced into my life. I would personally repurchase the primer should it run out. Its also pretty affordable at the price of $58.80 (45ml). 


Do head over to any SASA outlet or click on these 2 websites: Qoo10 and Lazada.

Huge thanks to Sasa for the invitation and your generosity. ^_^

3 Reasons Why I Love Bottega Verde Latest Splendida Range

Ever since my first encounter with the brand, I have taken a liking to their products, be it the vast range of products under their wing or simply the quality of them. 

Was super excited when I got the chance to preview Bottega Verde's newly launched Splendida range. 


Splendida is targeted towards women (and men) who is looking for an anti-aging and anti-oxidation solution. 

Bottega Verde claims that the Splendida range:

"has numerous aims: preventing loss of freshness, moisturising more efficiently, fighting the first signs of ageing, protecting the skin from pollution and achieving a new bright and radiant beauty. It was created for women in their thirties, when life is at its most demanding and the skin begins to lose its resilience against stress and tiredness, providing a complete programme to defend their youth. "



Here we have the First Wrinkles Anti-ageing Face Gel Cream. It is suitable for combination to oily skin as its light in texture and easily absorbed into the skin. If you want a product that doesn't sits on your skin and feels like next-to-nothing, then this would be great. 



Of course we have to cater for the other end of the spectrum. The First Wrinkles Anti-ageing Face Cream has a texture that is thicker in consistency (its a cream duh) and is absolutely perfect for normal to dry skin, which in my case is ideal. 



Have been using this for the past few days and I've got to say, I really like how moisturising it is to counter my dry patches on my chin. As I have normal to dry skin, I wouldn't spread it across the top half of my face as its a bit too heavy, so just the bottom half will do and they work wonders to my dehydrated skin.



This is a surprise product from the range, the Protective and Smoothing Face Primer, SPF25. Who would have thought that a primer (normally a makeup item) would be included into a skincare range. 



The primer is pretty decent and did what a primer is meant to do by prolonging the longevity of my foundation. 



As you can see, it doesn't leave any white cast or any sheen on the skin (you wouldn't want to look like a disco ball, would you?). The product does not have that slippery feeling (hate the slimy feeling that some primers have) and its easily spreadable. Nice one.



Last but not least is Brightening Anti-Wrinkle Eye Care which is loaded with Vitamin E and B5. What I do like about this product is shown below.



Would you just look at the nifty packaging? o_O Its a squeezy tube with a flat applicator which ease spreading of the eye cream under the eye area. 



The product absorbs fairly quickly with a few tap under the eye. It does have a brightening effect and my skin did felt supple after application. 

A little gripe is that you need both hands to squeeze the tube in order to get products out as it requires a bit of effort.

----------------------------------

And here are the 3 reasons that I adore this collection and I urge you to go check them out at the stores:

1. It contains an exotic ingredient: Sicilian Barbary Fig Extract
This ingredient is extracted from a type of Cactus found in Mexico which packs a bunch of anti-oxidant (due to its high content of Vitamin E). Thus, you can totally imagine how great the anti-ageing properties are from this collection.

2. It smells wonderful.
If you know me, I'm sure it comes to no surprise that I absolutely cannot stay away from skincare products that smell heavenly. And this product is totally up my alley. Thanks to one of its ingredients, Magnolia, the scent has this garden refreshing white flower fragrance that perks me up whenever I use it. 

3. Its freaking affordable.
As with all products from Bottega Verde, the prices for the these products are inexpensive. Perfect for students or those on a tight budget that want a powerful skincare product but doesn't want to splurge too much. 




On a side note, here are some new hair care products from the left: Hair Neutraliser - Hair Fluid and BB Hair Cream. 

These former aimed to provide shine, volume and body to the hair while the latter works on de-frizzing, nourishes, revitalises the hair. I've been using fluid after bathing and the BB cream every morning while getting ready to work.


Do head over to Suntec City L2-454 (North Wing) and Punggol Waterway Point L1-56 to give the products a try. Or you can now order directly online at Lazada.com.

The Solution to Dry Itchy Skin ~ Bottega Verde Olive Range | ad

When I first heard that Bottega Verde is introducing their latest Olive Range, I was absolutely ecstatic. "Finally, maybe a solution to my hubz dry itchy skin!!" I thought.

Bottega Verde's Olive products are made with people suffering from dry demanding skin that requires intense moisturising and nourishing. Produced from BV's very own Olive farm, the olives are harvested mid-October and are ensured that these fruits (yes, they are fruits) are kept in their finest condition throughout the process. 



Introducing some of the products from this range: 

1. Bath and Shower Gel ($12.90)
2. Body Butter ($19.90)
3. Body Oil ($39.90)
4. Hand Cream ($9.90)









I have to say, all the products smelt AMAZING!! Its this nice relaxing floral scent that soothes and calms and senses. Perfect for a pampering session or when you just want to have nice moisturised skin at the same time smelling good. 




The product that received my highest recommendation is this Body Oil. Let me tell you this dolls, this stuff WORKS LIKE MAGIC.

On the first day I received it, immediately I pass this to my hubz and told him to slather liberally on the problematic area. And on the second day, his itch seems to have GONE!! Like byebye-itchy-skin, let's-not-see-each-other-ever-again GONE. 

I was absolutely impressed. I mean, he has been battling with this issue for several months, even doctor's medicine couldn't cure him and then this product just made the itch disappear, like that. I swear, this is just freakin' mind-blowing. 

Alright, I need to stop here. You guys seriously have to go check the product out yourself to test it. I can totally see myself repurchasing for my man. Plus, the whole range is extremely affordable thus purchasing them repeatedly will definitely not break the bank. 


Do head over to Suntec City L2-454 (North Wing) and Punggol Waterway Point L1-56 to give the products a go.

Effective Pain/Aches Relieving Tool | ad

Wow, life has been taking a huge toll on me that I fell really ill for last few days. But I didn't want to neglect my blog for too long thus am gonna do a review on these products. 

A continuation to my previous post, PS Love has been very kind and generous to send some of their newly launched heat packs for different parts of the body for me to try out. 

I really appreciate the timing of these products to reach me as I was experiencing ache throughout my whole body (no kidding) as I was down with fever. 



As you can see, there are now heat packs for your neck, your back and an improved version of the MenstruHeat (the previous version review is here). 


As per instructed, I applied the neck and back head pad to my aching parts and boy-oh-boy does it sooth my pain and calms my nerves. As usual, I really love how securely the pads adhered to my skin and clothing without having to fuss too much. The heat generated from the pads are also just right as I don't feel any burns. These definitely aid in making me feel more comfortable during my fever.

The newly improved MenstruHeat is upgraded to a more ergonomic design whereby the "2-piece" pad sits better on my tummy with wider coverage thus spreading the heat more evenly on the applied area.

A word of caution though and I would first have to put it out there that its entirely my fault for being negligence. I totally forgot that I have the pad on my tummy area and carried my daughter which resulted in her sensitive skin being red from the heating (do bear in mind that she's only 7 months old). Hence, I highly suggest that the pads be kept away from infant and babies.

So, with that aside, I do recommend these products for people who are experiencing aching and pain on any parts of their body to provide instant relief.

And the good news is: if you use code CINDYKHOR on their website, you'll get a 20% off on your purchases. How cool is that?

Do head over to their official website for more info and also their blog with informative articles relating women healthcare.

Available now at all 7-eleven stores and Guardian outlets.
