Vanity Case is my weakness, I know I’ve had many lotions at home but whenever I see Crabtree & Evelyn vanity case, I am still interested to get one more.

Kiehl’s Vetiver & Black Tea Fragrance Collection

Kiehl’s presents a new range of scent of their aromatic blends. This time, it’s a unique blend of Vetiver and Black Tea.

The new fragrance, Vetiver & Black Tea, gives patrons an invigorating woody fragrance selection that captures the earthy, sweet aroma of Vetiver and the soothing, citrus-like aroma of Black Tea.

As a tea lover, I like the non intimidating smell of this scent. I can smell the black tea in this product – it gives a relaxing aroma to my mind whenever I apply it.

Some of you might not be familiar with Vetiver; Vetiver is originally grown and harvested in Haiti. Vetiver is also a vital plant for supporting soil retention and irrigation control. This oil gives a woody scent with sweet-sour accents and a woody-balsamic undertone. Whereas for black tea, I am sure many of you are familiar with black tea and might be drinking it almost everyday. Ceylon black tea is harvested in the high mountains of Sri Lanka and it’s dried and fermented afterwards. With this method, we’ll get the soothing and citrusy fragrance of black tea.

This range comes with Softening Body Cleanser and Softening Body Lotion, The body cleanser is sulfate free and the body lotion is silicone free.

Aromatic Blends Vetiver & Black Tea Body Cleanser 250ml retails for $33

Aromatic Blends Vetiver & Black Tea Body Lotion 250ml retails for $43

I personally love this range especially the shower gel, It has a unique smell that only this range can offer. It gives a relaxing aroma without being too intimidating. Try to visit Kiehl’s store and give this range a try!

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)

 

The product is now available islandwide in Singapore

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.

IMG_9755.jpg

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.
