Radical Skincare Overview

The older I get, the more appreciation I have towards good skincare. Anti Aging Skincare plays a very important role on my daily skincare regime. I always make sure that anti aging product is incorporated into my skincare regime; I am too worried when I see some fine lines. Call me Kiasu, but well who doesn’t wish to delay skin aging? LOL ;)

The story behind radical skincare was an interesting one. Two sisters Rachel & Liz, both of them have been working in their father’s lab for years and thereafter they’re working in cosmetics industry to create skincare for celebrities. Rachel, who were in her 40s just had her second child and she was having rosacea. This time round, they decided to create skincare which can multitasks and at the same time suitable for sensitive skin.

Few weeks ago, I was given a chance to try RADICAL skincare. RADICAL skincare emphasises multi tasking effectiveness on their product. It’s a skincare to tackle multiple problems at one go; hydration, wrinkles, firmness and radiance. The skincare is packed with generous amount of antioxidant to combat anti aging process. The technology behind Radical Skincare is TRYLACEL technology – a technology that encapsulates the ingredients to mimic human membrane cells and helps to deliver functional materials to the sites where they are needed.

I was given a few products to try and I’d like to mention a few that has worked very well for me.

Extreme Repair

If I were to choose one moisturiser that works best for my skin so far, it would have to be Extreme Repair. My skin has became so dry after pregnancy and I have found few items that works well for my skin, but it seems like Extreme Repair has been the champion for all moisturisers that I’ve tried. Keep reading to know more!

Extreme Repair – as the name suggests, it is meant for dry skin that needs to be repaired asap. It hydrates and moisturises skin without making it look oily. It also firms and re-textures skin condition. The key ingredient is camauba wax from Brazil, desert date palm, and rice oil to protect our skin from harsh weather.

I’m wearing Extreme Repair after my serum and using this to my whole face and to my neck too. I find that Extreme Repair works wonders and it works quickly; I notice that my skin feels suppler and softer after 3 days. It feels smoother, looking healthier and more firm. It that doesn’t sound convincing enough, I even tried it on my mom’s face (my mom is in her 50s) and she too, commented that her skin feels so much better after using it for few days. We are now sharing this tube whenever she visits my place here ;)

Skin Perfecting Screen SPF 30

Another item that I found to be a lovely staple is the Skin Perfecting Screen. It’s packed with SPF 30.

Along with Radical Skincare philosophy, this product is meant to multitasks. Not only it helps to protect the skin against damaging UV Rays, it is also packed with a range of antioxidant to help delaying skin aging by reducing appearance of wrinkles.

Skin Perfecting Screen is also packed with Diamond powder which helps to give that healthy glow and thus I like to use this as a tinted moisturiser too. In the days where I don’t feel like applying too much make up, I will reach out to this and use it after my moisturiser. It provides light coverage and it doesn’t feel sticky at all on my skin. Even on the days when I am not going out, I will also apply a thin layer of Skin Perfecting Screen to make sure that my skin is well protected.

On most days, I am using this right after my moisturiser and will apply my BB cream to get the coverage I need. When I’m staying indoor , I have used this to top up some sunscreen on top of my make up when I need to step out and being exposed to the sun. It feels lightweight even on top of my make up; It didn’t feel sticky at all.

Hand and Nail Multi-Repair Creme

Last but definitely not the least is the Hand and Nail Multi Creme. Hand and nail cream is an important item on my skincare staple. It’s important because I tend to bite my nails a lot since I was a kid, hence applying hand cream would help me from biting my nails.

I rarely put my thoughts on hand and nail creme as I found most brands to be equal. But once I try Radical Skincare Hand and Nail Cream, I was sold. It was very lightweight and it was easily absorbed into the skin and it doesn’t leave any sticky feelings at all. I love the citrusy scent that smells so refreshing! It lingers very nicely and I definitely think this hand cream is suitable for everyone who likes lightweight cream and for those who doesn’t like heavy smell. I am definitely a fan of this hand cream ;)

With Trylacel technology, this handcream does not only hydrates the skin but also helps to protect the skin against aging. It’s made with ingredients such as coffee, tea, niacinamide, vitamin C and superoxide dismutase (SOD) to re-stimulate collagen to improve skin firmness. In the ingredient list, we can also find Hexylresorcinol to reduce dark spots and Myrrh to strengthen cuticles and nails.

 

In a nutshell, I definitely think that Radical Skincare worth a try. Although the price point is not the most affordable one, but hey it’s worth to pay more for something that WORKS. I strongly recommend Extreme Repair for people with dry skin. It feels very rich and moisturising; it can help to hydrate my skin in airconditioned room for a long hours.

 

 

 

Glamglow ThirstyCleanse

Glamglow is releasing a range of facial cleanser. Well I have always been associating Glamglow with face masks and finally the brand has expanded the product range. During the media preview launch in Singapore, I was invited to the event. Thanks to Linda from Silverkis for extending the invite ;)

IMG_6551

IMG_6548

GLAMGLOW has released 3 types of cleanser:

  • Thirstycleanse: Daily Hydrating Cleanser
  • Supercleanse : Daily Clearing Cleanser
  • Youthcleanse : Daily Dual Cleanser

Thanks to the Escentials Team, I was given a bottle of Thirstycleanse to try.

Thirstycleanse comes in a tube with pump. Each pump is meant for one face washing session. The tube is also placed inside an outer packaging with the same design.

IMG_6995

In a glance, thirstycleanse looks like thirstymud when pumpedl its texture and it’s color looks similar. It’s thick in texture and it contains Teaoxi Olive Tree Powder and it feels very mild on the skin. It’s also packed with Rare Brazillian Yellow Clay which is rich in potassium and helps to mineralize the skin. To boost the hydration level, it’s made with pure green coconut water. The coconut scent can be smelled immediately when you apply the product on you face, and it lingers for a while after you’ve washed it.

To cleanse my face, I will rub my hands with one pump of product and apply it all over my face. With sprinkles of water, I started massaging my face and I can see the product transform form mud to foam. It took me about 15 seconds to massage my face and eventually rinse it all off with water. After washing, I do not experience tightening feeling on my skin; it feels fine on my normal-dry skin.

IMG_6996 IMG_6997 IMG_6998

Thirstycleanse is meant for daily use as it is intended to restore the moisture on your face, replenishing and calming the skin. As for my dry skin types, I find that glamglow mudmask might not work the best for me. But it’s a different case with the Thirstycleanse, While many glamglow mudmask might be quite drying for me, I find that thirstycleanse is able to maintain the moisture level on my face after cleansing.

Glamglow Cleansers is now available islandwide in Escentials Paragon & TANGS Orchard and Sephora. Retailing at S$59.

Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Capsules Daily Youth Restoring Serum – Review

Few weeks ago, a lovely parcel was delivered to my doorstep. It was a Mother’s day gift package from Elizabeth Arden. Although Mother’s Day has passed, I think it’s still lovely to talk about the product in the package.

In this post, I will be talking mostly about the Ceramide Capsules Daily Youth Restoring Serum. It’s one of the most uniquely packaged serum that I own. I like how the serum is packed into a capsule so that hygiene is not compromised. Each capsule is packed with the right amount of serum to be applied. There are 60 capsules in each packaging; so if you are using one capsule a day, this will last for two months or one month if you’re using this two capsules daily.

To open the capsule, what you must do is to twist tab around twice and squeeze the capsule to get the serum and apply it all over your face and neck.

IMG_6856

Ceramide Capsules Daily Youth Restoring Serum is the world’s leading capsule technology, and one of the reason is the main ingredient. Ceramide is found in human skin layer and it plays an important part to maintain skin against aging. And to maintain skin elasticity, Elizabeth Arden has created a skin identical ceramide to combat aging, provide hydration and maintain elasticity to the skin.

IMG_6860

I have been using this for the past one month day and night. After I cleansed my face, I will apply few drops of face essence and then start applying one capsule all over my face and onto my neck too. The serum feels like facial oil, and it feels very light. It has no scents, and therefore this would be suitable for ladies who has sensitive skin. The serum quickly absorbs to my skin after 1-2 minutes of application. There’s no sticky feeling lingering on my face at all and then I proceed to apply the facial cream as provided in the package.

IMG_6858

IMG_6859

The day cream is worth mentioning, I love the milky texture and it also has SPF 30. I love the texture is light for my day use and how I don’t need to apply suncreen anymore after applying the day cream.

My verdict after using the ceramide range for a month is that the serum is worth trying. The most obvious result that I notice is that the lines on my neck. The lines on my neck slowly fades and my neck is looking smoother, plumper and obviously more hydrated. On me, the result can be seen after 2 weeks of application. The non sticky texture is also one of the reason why I am loving this Ceramide Capsules Daily Youth Restoring Serum; it is easily absorbed into the skin and it leaves my skin feels hydrated and plump.

The Ceramide Capsules Daily Youth Restoring Serum retails for SGD 143.00 for 60 capsules.

Benefit They’re Real Push Up Liner

What is the make up item that you always have in your bag? For me it would be eyeliner and lipstick (yes I always have two make up items or more :p)

Benefit has released They’re Real Push Up Liner last year, and many people are swear by it. It’s the best selling prestige liner in the US (research by the NPD group Inc). Following up to their success, Benefit is now releasing They’re Real Push Up Liner in 4 fun colors; beyond brown, beyond blue, beyond green and beyond purple.

IMG_6531

IMG_6423

The main characteristic that makes this eyeliner differs from others is the applicator itself. The accu-flex tip is designed in such a way that makes application easy, smooth and lash hugging. I have tried using this eyeliner for a few times and here’s what I found:

  • I need to turn two clicks to get the amount of product needed. One click (as recommended) does not provide the amount of product needed to get the pigmentation I need.
  • Start drawing from the end of your eyelid and continue lining it to tear duck area. By doing this, it’s easier to get a balance flick for both eyes at the end of your eyelid.
  • Smudging is not a problem as it sets on my lid for the whole day without smudging; but during application, The formula sets quite quickly so if you make any mistake, removing it would be quite troublesome
  • Use a light stroke for the early application as the product , and you may put more pressure as you draw on.

One of the main advantages of this eyeliner is the lasting power and the smudge proof formula. My eyelid tends to be oily and not many eyeliner (especially in gel formula) can last for the whole day without smudging, but They’re Real Push Up Liner stays on my lid without smudging for a good 6 hours.

IMG_6425

 

Here’s what the colors look like, on the left is beyond green and on the right is beyond purple. What I did was drawing one line and if I need deeper pigmentation, I would add on more color.

On the removal process, using oil cleanser works best for me. I would apply my oil cleanser all over my face and gently rub my lid. If I still find any residue, I would use my micellar water to do the cleansing.

Overall, the addition of the 4 new colors has definitely make this Push Up Liner stands out better than before. In some days when I feel that black eyeliner is boring, I would go for colorful eyeliner to create a simple yet unusual look. I love green eyeliner on my eyes, it looks less boring but yet it never fails to make my eye looks bigger. The lasting power is amazing, it stays on for a good 6 hours without any signs of fading/creasing or smudging.

 

Benefit They’re Real Push UP Liner will be retailing for $42 and will be available in Singapore on June 25th onwards

Shu Uemura Tsuya Skin Youthful Bounciful-Fine Emulsion Review

Hello beauty blogosphere!!

I have missed you! It’s been more than a month since I posted. So for those of you who are following me on instagram, you would have known that I am a new mom! I gave birth to my adorable baby girl slightly more than a month ago and life has been busier since then. I am glad that finally I could find some time to write a review about a product here.

The next day I gave birth to my baby, I found that my skin has gone to a very dry condition. Not only dry, but it looks so unhealthy, dull and tired looking. I can’t help but feel so bad about myself. After few days, I am trying to start my skincare regime again. This time, I am trying out a relatively new product; Shu Uemura Tsuya Skin Youthful Bounciful – fine Emulsion.

For the Tsuya range, there are two new additions to the range. There’s a cream version and emulsion version which I am going to review here. Emulsion has a lighter texture when compared to the cream version.

I have always been a fan of Tsuya Essence since it was launched. With its main ingredient, it never fails to brighten up my skin from dull looking into bright and healthy looking skin. So when Shu Uemura presents me the new product from the range, I am beyond thrilled to try it! The new product comes in two texture; emulsion and cream. I picked the emulsion this time.

Taken from Shu Uemura website,

the Emulsion is described as:

a lightweight moisturizer that creates bouncy-fine smooth skin “touch” and delicate dewy-glow “look”

 

The emulsion comes in a lovely sleek white packaging with a pump. For those of you who are concerned over hygiene issue, this should not be a problem as you can always press the pump to get the product.

Tsuya skin range promises to give you that bouncy and youthful looking skin. One of the key ingredient in this product is Rhamnose – which is clinically proven to improve collagen production. This will result in smoother and more radiant skin.

For many months, My skincare routine has always include Tsuya-skin as this is my key serum to boost youthful radiance to my skin. I am using the Emulsion as my final skincare regime every morning and night. I have been using this continuously for about 5 weeks now and I have been seeing improvement on my skin – from dull and tired looking skin to bouncy and more hydrated skin that feels bouncy.

I can see myself using this in the long run, not only because the texture is light, but also it does not make my skin feels oily. The light smell of the signature Tsuya scent is not too overwhelming too, making it a lovely scent to wrap my skincare regime for the day and night. Most importantly, I can see this product delivers positive result to my skin. My skin looks healthier and bouncier!
