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!

Clarisonic Sonic Radiance

With the busy schedule and being exposed to the sun everyday, there’s no doubt that my skin will be looking dull when neglected. As much as high SPF sunscreen will be helpful to prevent dullness, cleansing regime & skincare will also play a part to help skin looking brighter. So when Clarisonic sent me this set, I was thrilled to give it a try!

Sonic Radiance Brightening Solution by Clarisonic promises to combat hyper-pigmentation, acne-induced discolouration, uneven skin tone and dullness. The set contains these products:

  • Clarisonic Aria: This sleek device is both ergonomical and customizable with a pulsing T-Timer and three adjustable levels of sonic speed: Delicate, Universal and Powerful.
  • The Radiance Brush Head: This uniquely designed and patented spot and dullness-fighting brush head is specifically engineered with softer, denser, extra fine bristles to deliver a complexion-comforting yet highly effective cleansing experience.
  • Skin Illuminating Cleanser: The high-foaming gentle cleansing action combined with the pigment balancing activity of licorice helps brighten and even skin tone while removing impurities. This cleansing milk is specially formulated to be used with Clarisonic Cleansing device.
  • Skin Renewing Essence Boost: Formulated with Vitamin B3, this essence promised to help smooth and retexture skin for a more radiant, healthy looking complexion.
  • Brightening Activator Serum: Featuring powerful depigmentation ingredients, Ellagic Acid and Phenylethyl Resorcinol, this clinically proven serum is formulated to provide intense hydration and help reduce the synthesis of melanin and lighten dark spots, age spots and acne-induced discoloration when applied each day and night.


How to use:

– Moisten your skin with Skin Illuminating Cleanser directly into the skin and using the ARIA speed 1, let the device cleanse your skin with 1 minute T-timer

– Apply Brightening Activator Serum all over your face and massage with your finger tips.

After using this kit for close to two weeks, one thing I must say is that I do notice my face looking brighter. I can even see an instant result after one time use – my skin was looking brighter and less dull. After almost two weeks, I noticed an even better result; My cheek area looks much better and the skin pigmentation on my cheek has faded slightly. But on my dry skin, I feel the Skin Renewing Essence Boost is rather drying on my skin and hence I skipped on the routine and only using the cleansing milk and the serum.. Both these product has helped me to achieve a brighter complexion.


The Clarisonic Sonic Radiance Brightening Solution retails for $355 and is available at Sephora (from 1st April 2015), TANGS Orchard & Robinsons Raffles City (from 18th April 2015). Sonic Radiance Customization Set, $170 (Only available in June 2015); Skin Illuminating Cleanser, $35; Brightening Activator Serum, $75; Skin Renewing Essence Boost, $55; Radiance Brush Head, $40.

Chanel Hydra Beauty Micro Serum Review


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.


Taken from Chanel Website

Patented micro-droplet technology delivers the purest form ofCamellia Oil Extract, exclusive* new Camellia Alba OFA**, to infuseskin with exceptional hydrating and plumping power.

This remarkably pure HYDRA BEAUTY ingredient, created by Chanelscientists, stimulates skin’s natural ability to restore and retainmoisture for a smooth, radiant appearance.

To protect the benefits of Camellia Alba PFA, Chanel revealed one ofnature’s most powerful anti-oxidants, Blue Ginger PFA. Thisexceptional ingredient acts as an environmental shield, blocking andneutralizing free radicals to help reinforce the complexion.


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.


The serum is now available in Chanel counters islandwide. And if you’re having concern with your dry skin, this serum might be a great help!

Experience Effortless Make Up Removal Process with new Biore? Aqua Jelly Makeup Remover


Here we are embracing the new week and coming to the second quarter of the year! It’s time for me to count my countless blessing this year. It’s been a good start of the year so far and let’s have positive thoughts for the rest of the year too!

Recently the kind people at the Biore SG PR agency sent me this bottle of the new Biore? Aqua Jelly Makeup Remover. If you have been reading my blog frequently, you’ll know that Biore is one of the brand that I love for my cleansing regime. Not only because it’s so affordable but most importantly because it’s effective in doing its job!



I use this product very frequently these days. It’s effective in removing my make up and also it’s efficient. I usually pump once or twice (depending on the make up I use on that day) and apply it on my face. I will massage my face for about 1 minute and then rinse off with water. Most of the time I will also wipe my face with Micellar Water to make sure that my face is throughly clean.

Some features of the newly improved Biore Aqua Jelly:

  • Smoother jelly-like texture is gentle on skin and rinses off easily. The product doesn’t leave my skin feeling tight nor oily, it rinses off easily which makes cleansing process fast and efficient.
  • High cleansing ability dissolves and lifts off all traces of makeup effortlessly. I am happy to share that whenever I wipe my face with micellar water after I cleanse my face with Biore Aqua Jelly, I couldn’t see any make up left or if there’s any, it was just a slight sight of foundation
  • Made with 40% moisturising essence which nourishes and hydrates skin for a dewy, moisturised finish. For people with dry skin, Biore Aqua Jelly is worth trying! After washing my face, I didn’t feel my skin was drying or tightening. My skin feels clean and yet feels hydrated after.
  • Lightweight formula leaves skin feeling refreshed, with no sticky or greasy after-feel.


All I can say is, so far Biore cleansing products have never disappoints me. They serve their purpose and they are all very affordable! The new Biore? Aqua Jelly Makeup Remover will be retailing in Singapore islandwide starting 1st of April and it’s retailing at $24.90

Benefit Roller Lash Mascara Review

I must admit that I have been quite hopeless searching for the IT mascara for me. I hope you don’t mind me telling a short story about my lashes. My lashes have always been short, thin and droopy. Even though I have curl my lashes, it will always go back to its initial state when it’s straight and droopy. There are so many mascaras out there that seems to have received very good review, but when I tried it on.. it doesn’t always the case on me. In my beauty journey so far, I have only been intrigued by a few mascaras, and I have mentioned some of them on this blog.

And so Benefit sent over their new Roller Lash mascara to me.. Let’s take a look at the product first!



Roller Lash mascara comes in girly design with a pretty pattern on top. Benefit’s previous mascara has rather simple design, so when I see something as pretty as this design, I’m thrilled!

Let’s take a look at the brush!



What I like about Roller Lash is that it stays on my eyes for a long hour! There’s no need for me to worry that it will smudge out and make my make up looks messy. Roller Lash has very good formula that it stays on my eyelash nicely for a good 6 hours without smudging. Another thing I find is that Roller Lash visibly lengthen my short and droopy eyelashes. The formula is light and hence after wearing it for few hours, my lashes still holds up quite nicely and it doesn’t looks droopy.

Here’s a comparison of the brush band between Roller Lash and other Benefit Mascara


Here’s a comparison of my bare lashes and when I am using Roller Lash mascara

You can see how Roller Lash lifts up my droopy lashes and makes it looks better instantly. My lashes stays just like that for a good 6 hours and it also stays there without smudging. This amazes me as my natural lashes are short and droopy; being able to see my lashes stays lifted and curled nicely for 6 hours is wow!

For cleaning part, I find it easier to rub my lashes with cleansing oil or eye make up remover that contains oil. It’s very easy to clean as I only need to rub twice and my lashes are all back to clean state.


Roller Lash Mascara is now available in Singapore and retailing at SGD 37
