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.

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.

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.

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.

Chanel Hydra Beauty Micro Serum Review

IMG_5619

Recently during the start of 2015, Chanel released an improved version of the Hydra Beauty Serum. I was looking for a good hydration serum as my skin gets very dry these days due to hormonal changes. Looking at the pretty promo pictures where the bubbles looks so cute, I purchased a bottle hoping that my skin will feel moisturised after using this.

The packaging comes with a plastic bottle with a pump. The texture of this serum is a water-like Jelly texture. I like to use one pump for all over my face and let it set for about 15 seconds before I move on to apply my moisturiser. Please note that this serum is scented with Chanel camelia scent which I find to be quite strong in this serum. The scent eventually subside after 5 minutes of application.

After two weeks of frequent use day and night. I am amazed to see that my skin looks better. It is more moisturised and most importantly, my skin doesn’t feel itchy or tight anymore. I am really pleased with the result the serum delivered. My skin feels much better these days! Although the too-strong-scent might be the only thing I dislike, I am so far pleased with the light watery texture that’s non sticky and non greasy. This serum is suitable for day and night usage.

Biotherm Blue Therapy Serum in Oil Information & Review

IMG_9738

 

I have always been loving face oil for it’s texture and faster result. The scent of oil based products are suitable to my liking as well. So when I was invited to the launch of the Biotherm Blue Therapy Serum in Oil few weeks ago, I was very excited to know more about this product and to try it myself.

Biotherm Serum in Oil comes in a glass bottle packaging with pump. The blue color represents Biotherm’s signature formula in their serum which is Blue Plankton and yellow represents the color of the oil.

Biotherm Serum in Oil is a new innovation that unites the power of serum and repair of an oil. One of the most interesting ingredients in this product is Ulkenia Oil. So what is ulkenia Oil? Ulkenia has been used to produce Omega 3 supplement and the benefits has been recognized worldwide – and for the first time, Ulkenia is being used as one of the formula.

It’s interesting to see the color and the texture of the product when you pump out the serum. You may see that the color of the serum has a combination of yellow and white which is claimed to be the color when a serum and ulkenia oil is mixed. The texture is not something you would expect from a product with oil – it feels weightless and it comes in gel like texture.  The texture is very light that I wouldn’t mind using this at day time. The product is lightly scented – it smells citrusy to me and it feels refreshing.

I have been loving this serum lately for its texture and light weight feeling it has on my skin. It feels non sticky and it is certainly friendly on my skin. My skin can be sensitive to certain products ingredients and thankfully Biotherm Blue Therapy  Serum in Oil is friendly to my skin.

Biotherm Blue Therapy Serum-In-Oil retails at SGD109 and is available at all Biotherm counters.

Estee Lauder New Advanced Night Repair Eye – Review

There’s a saying “The eyes are the window to the soul”. As I grow, I start to understand this saying. You can easily see if a person is happy, tired or stress just by looking straight in their eye. That’s how important eye area to me. Estee Lauder’s scientists found that the look of more light in the eye can bring the youthfulness in everyone.

Estee Lauder has recently launched the New Advance Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex which is packed with ChronoluxCB Technology claims to be able to restore skin over the night. This new Advanced Night Repair Eye is also able to neutralise free radicals, reduce the appearance of damage on the skin and refreshes the skin.

Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair comes in two types – the balm type and the liquid type. I tried both and I guess both serves its own fans well. The balm type can be rather sticky to me and hence on day time, I prefer to use the liquid type as it feels lighter and at night, I prefer to use the balm type. On my first experience using this, I can smell a slight scent but it gradually  diminished after few times usage.

This is how the balm texture looks like:

My eye area problem has always been about puffiness and occasional eyebag. What I love about the new advance night repair eye is that it helps to reduce the puffiness in my eyes after a week of use. When I wake up in the morning, my eyes looks less puffy, thanks to the New Advanced Night Repair Eye.

 

Retail Price:

Advanced Night Repair Eye Synchronized Recovery Complex II: S$94 (15ml)

Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum Synchronized Recovery Complex II: S$100 (15ml)

Kiehl’s Singapore celebrate 10th birthday, and here are my favorite products…

IMG_9752.jpg

 

Happy birthday to Kiehl’s Singapore!!

Kiehl’s Singapore celebrates their 10th anniversary

I would like to take this opportunity to write a post dedicated to my favorite Kiehl’s products. I started using Kiehl’s product about two years ago and these products have always been my favorite and I will always repurchase the products whenever I almost ran out of these.

Here are my favorite products from Kiehl’s and products are not in sequence..

IMG_9756.jpg

Firstly is the Ultra Facial Cream. My skin type is normal to combination – however at certain times, my cheek area tends to be drier than the usual. Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream comes in few types; the classic ultra facial cream, the intense hydration and lastly the newly launched is the oil free type. The products captured above is the classic type and the intense hydration type.

I love both face creams, they moisturises my skin without leaving a greasy feeling. On top of that, the product is fragrance free, so it’s a lovely product to be used anytime of the day. I am using the classic ultra facial cream for my day use and the intense hydration for my night routine.

IMG_9754.jpg

Here’s another product that I have been using over and over again.I am currently on my third bottle. Here’s Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution. This serum helps to minimize dark spots and to brighten the skintone. I love this product because it’s effective in brightening my skintone. Whenever I feel that my skin feels dull, I’ll pick this out and apply it onto my face. In few days, I will usually be able to witness the result; my skin looks brighter and healthier.

Lastly it would be the Midnight Recovery Concentrate. This was the first oil based products that I tried and since then, I have always been a lover of oil based products. Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery is the product I am looking for whenever I am having a breakout – it has always helps to calm my skin down. This would also be the product that I am looking for whenever I feel too tired to apply many products at night. I will apply my serum quickly and add this as a moisturiser.

I also love Kiehl’s Suncreen, BB cream and many others.. But these three has always been my top picks from Kiehl’s! If you have not tried any of these, you can always pop by at Kiehl’s store and ask for samples.

And to celebrate Kiehl’s Singapore 10th Birthday, Kiehl’s is collaborating with Olivia Ong to release a limited edition designed Calendula Toner and Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing Masque. The design is inspired by one of Kiehl’s most iconic and long standing ingredients from nature – Calendula flower.
