July Skin Care Routine, Day & Night

Hello everyone, I'm finally back.
This July is super hot and sunny in Singapore, I don't feel like using much skin care products, it causes unhappy sticky feeling, so I tried to keep them as simple as possible and yet could provide enough moisture during the day and night, especially in the air-conditioned room.

Uniqlo-Cath Kidston Charity Project Floral Printed T-Shirts, 2011

Uniqlo has just lauched a new retail store at Vivo city, Singapore today (29 April). I happened to be there during lunch time, there is an opening promotion on going until 19th May. 

I was so excited to see Uniqlo collaborates with Cath Kidston this time because I didn't know about it before I went down to the store. This new store is very big in size, the whole store is decorated in white color, feels very bright and clean. All products are well organized. 

It was so crowed during lunch time, the store opened at 10am today and some of the small size T-shirts were already out of stock. Cath Kidston collection is so popular that everyone was squeezing in front of the shelf and looking for their right sizes. I saw most people grabbed at least 2 T-shirts in hand just in case they can't find them later.

Here are what I got from the whole Cath Kidson collection, it was really difficult for me to decide which one to give up, because initially I took 7 pieces into the fitting room (although only 4 pieces are allowed for each person).

Original price: S$24.9, discounted price: S$19.9


This Uniqlo exclusive collection is designed by British designer Cath Kidston to raise funds for the Japanese Organization for International Cooperation in Family Planning (JOICFP), a charitable non-governmental organization. Cath Kidston and Uniqlo will make donations from the net proceeds of sale to fund an initiative supporting a safe motherhood program in Zambia.Please enjoy this wonderful collection, which redefines popular Cath Kidston classic prints through Uniqlo printing techniques and re-images them in vintage-fashion colors and a bleached antique look.(http://shop.uniqlo.com/uk/store/clothing/cath-kidston/women/.)



This round collar cute dotted T-shirt is from collection 1. The quality is very good, the cotton is so smooth and soft, feels very comfortable.

All about Serum: Clarins Shaping Facial Lift Serum / Eminence Couperose-C / Trilogy CoQ10 Booster Serum

Hi everyone!
Serum is the must-have procedure in my skin care routine, I can't live without it.
Today, I'm going to review 3 serum products, which I have been using for the last 3, 4 month. They are Clarins Shaping Facial Lift Serum, Eminence Couperose-C High Potency Natural Antioxidant Serum and Trilogy CoQ10 Booster Serum. I have already finished the first two and just stopped using the third one.
  • Clarins Shaping Facial Lift Serum
Purpose: 
Face lifting, in order to achieve V-shape face contour.


Bottle Design:
Pump bottle, very good hygienic design, but I find the pump itself isn't very good, there was always cream residue around the metal part, created a bit mess after few pumps.


Texture:
White color creamy texture, but it feels very light on the face.

Mook: Paul & Joe 15th Anniversary Special Issue 2011


Paul & Joe 15th Anniversary Special Issue has arrived at Singapore last week. I got this copy from Kinokuniya at SGD31.5, you can get 10% off discount if you are Kinoluniya card member. I love all the Paul & Joe products and I've been waiting for this mook for couple of weeks. I was so happy when I passed by the store and saw they are finally available here.


The quality is much better than I expected, I was a bit disappointed with Jill Stuart makeup pouch in the mook last time. Obviously this bag is well made with much better details. The spring flora print is so pretty.

Sunscreen Products I Like & Dislike

We are so sorry that we have been mia for quite a long time, both of us were really busy at work and study recently. Now I'm back with a review of some sunscreen products I have been using lately.

As you all know, Singapore is hot and humid all year long, sunscreen becomes very important for everyone lives here. If I can only use one skincare product everyday, it will be sunscreen without second thought, because skin damage and skin aging are mainly caused by ultraviolet. 

"Many people incorrectly assume dry skin leads to wrinkles and that moisturizers can prevent them. Not true. Research shows 90 percent of wrinkles are caused by the sun's UVA light and sun damage is the #1 cause of premature aging in women and men." (about.com)

My skin condition is combination type, a bit sensitive and acne-prone.
My concern about a "good sunscreen" must be high SPF value, light texture, doesn't cause breakout and no harmful ingredient (like paraben or oxybenzone)

Below are the 3 products I like:

1, SHESEIDO ANESSA Perfect Smooth Sunscreen SPF50+ PA+++


SHESEIDO ANESSA Perfect Smooth Sunscreen SPF50+ PA+++


Total Score: 4.7 / 5 

What I like
High SPF value: SPF50+ PA+++  5 / 5
Finish: Matt 5 / 5
Texture: Light 5 / 5
Oil Control: 4.5 / 5
Ingredient: Paraben-free, Oxybenzone-free
(mixture of chemical and physical sunscreen) 4.5 / 5

What I dislike:
Price: 4 / 5
It's a bit pricey if to get it from department store, but it's still affordable to buy from HK drugstores.
