Curél Sebum Care - Advertorial



Curél - Japan’s No. 1 brand for sensitive Asian skin

Singapore, May 2014 – Finding the right skincare for people with sensitive facial skin is a challenge 
for many, and even more so for those with oily or combination skin types. 

“When selecting skincare products, they often settle for the use of lighter products catered for 
sensitive skin, and most of these products do not exhibit effective oil control function,” said Mr 
Koichi Ishida, Curél’s sensitive skincare expert and Global R&D Manager for Beauty Care. 

For this group of people with sensitive facial skin paired with oily or combination skin types, skin 
sensitivity is seen as a greater issue to be resolved as compared to the excess sebum secretion issue. 
However, they might not realise that disregarding the latter when choosing skincare products can 
potentially aggravate skin sensitivity. 

“If excess sebum on the skin surface is not properly removed, over time, the sebum turns into 
harmful substance that irritates the skin surface and even the inner layers, worsening skin 
sensitivity,” Mr Ishida explained. 

So is there any way to tackle both issues concurrently? 

There is!

A trusted skincare brand in Japan developed from over 30 years of dermatological research and 
endorsed by over 4,000 dermatologists in Japan and Asia, Curél provides complete protection and 
frees people from sensitive skin woes with its advanced ceramide care technology. 


Do you know that excess sebum can aggravate skin sensitivity?
A lot of people who have both conditions skin sensitivity and oily skin tend to place more emphasis on choosing products that help with their skin sensitivity.

This is not enough!
 Excess sebum generated will deteriorate as skin gets more alkaline, turning into irritants
to cause flare-ups within the skin layers. Hence it is important to choose products that effectively
control skin sensitivity while reducing sebum secretion from the source.

Curél, Japan’s No. 1 brand for sensitive Asian skin, introduces a new skincare range specially formulated for sensitive and oily or combination skin types. The Curél Sebum Care range comprising a Foaming Wash, Lotion and Moisture Gel offers the skincare essentials to properly manage both
skin sensitivity and sebum secretion.


Dual function for sensitive and oily skin

1. Strengthening skin barrier function 
Understanding the importance of ceramide in skin, Curél has made ceramide the key ingredient for all its products. Its hydrating and penetrating moisture-retaining ceramide care is widely recognised by dermatologists in Japan and Asia. Apart from effectively restoring ceramide function in skin, Curél Sebum Care range also protects the skin’s natural ceramide while cleansing, effectively replenishes ceramide and retains moisture. When skin stays supple and fully moisturised, it is better protected against external irritants.

2. : Oil and acne control
Using one of the main ingredients found in royal jelly (10-hydroxydecanoic acid) that is known for its inhibitory effect on excess sebum secretion, Curél developed its unique sebum zero-in control technology, which targets and regulates sebum excretion from deep within the skin to control the root of the problem. Curél Sebum Care range is also specially formulated to re-balance skin at its optimal pH level, preventing sebum from disintegration. Infused with antiphlogistic, an active ingredient that relieves inflammation, the range helps prevent the occurrence of acne as well.

***

Curél Sebum Care Foaming Wash (150ml), $19.80
Ultra fine foam with sebum solvent to thoroughly cleanse dirt and excess sebum while protectng ceramide. 

Usage: 
1. Apply two full pumps directly onto wet skin. 
2. Do not lather. 
3. Gentle massage and rinse off thoroughly. 

*

Curél Sebum Care Lotion (150ml), $24.90
Non-sticky formula prepares skin for better absorption of moisturiser/essence that is used after the lotion.

Moreover, it's non scented and definitely the best for sensitive skin!

Be it I'll get this job or not, I really had no idea? Chances are 50-50, and I dare not pint too much hope on it. At least now I can tell myself that I actually can! I hope to bring the other half good news to you guys on Friday!

2 more days!




Last year, I was about to take up the challenge and go for a major casting with a singapore owned company but was so afraid to do so and I've no confidence in myself, keep having all the unnecessary negative thoughts flowing through my mind every now and then. I gave up and feeling darn regret now! So I decided to go for it again in another two days time! Been memorizing hard on what to say and all, hopefully I'm able to bring the good news to everyone here and my close ones. I heard that it's not easy, but I'll give in all my best during the casting on the coming wednesday. I'm already feeling pretty nervous now and can't wait for wednesday to come. Like seriously, I want this to be over quickly so that I can know the results instead of linger here and there everyday. This journey is where it'll change my next chapter of life, my attitude and how I portray my best image at all times representing singapore. I'll reveal what is it till I get in,
so.... do anticipate!


A dream will always be a dream if you do nothing about it.
Till then, xx

Neutrogena - Advertorial




Deep Clean!


I'm honored, being sponsored two products from Neutrogena from samplestore to try it out. Between the brightening and hydrating cleanser, my first love would be hydrating so I'm gonna talk more on the hydrating cleanser. As many people know, hydrating is very important to our skin!

DEEP CLEAN HYDRATING : CONTAINS WATER MINERAL COMPLEX
This cleanser provides effective cleaning (99% impurity removal) and hydration that leaves the face looking
clean and supple. This happens because of use of special water mineral complex.Water mineral complex
consists of the combination of Copper Gluconate; Magnesium Aspartate; Zinc Gluconate and Water all of which are known to improve skin hydration.


Neutrogena® Deep Clean Hydrating forming cleanser.
Texture is good, Smell is good, Lathering is good, basically everything is so good about this cleanser!
It can be easily rinsed off and the after wash feeling is very refresh! And it make my skin smell so nice! It also help to cleaned thoroughly and helped to absorption of other skincare products.

As many should know hydrating is very important to our skin as I mentioned earlier. Especially if you're working as a cabin crew or in an office environment, being in the air or the air condition places for long hours is really bad for our skin. It dries our skin and make our skin look very un-hydrated thus it make our skin look dull and old! For some people who're lazy to do their daily skincare routine should get this hydrating cleanser from Neutrogena because cleanser is the only thing that we use daily!

My first ever experience with neutrogena cleanser was many years ago during my secondary school days and it really improves my skin a lot! Even till now, I'm still using some of their products, which is really good and affordable so if you're thinking of changing skincare products or etc, do consider neutrogena!
Good cleansing is the first and most important step in ensuring long term good health of the skin and long term commitment to healthy skin. Hence a good cleanser is the "True foundation of beauty"

Sunday brunch with my boyfriend at N.O.M, which means No Other Meaning.
As recently their rainbow have been flooding on my instagram feed so I know I have to give it a try since it's like so good and it looks super pretty! Also, it's not very far away unlike some other cafes and what's more, it's not very crowded as well even on a sunday, hur hur!


Taaaaadaaaaaa ~ Rainbow in my tummy!
I had the one in caramel and it's indeed not bad! Worth making your trip down for this piece of pretty rainbow cake. Not only caramel, they have oreo and chocolate flavor too!
I would say their cakes is the best, main course and other food was just average. Good service and pocket friendly as well, will definitely be back again for their cakes! *Location: Macpherson Community Club!

Sweet treats day!




Finally, the long awaited gathering with my wonderful group of friends yesterday at Takashimaya. This gathering is like once in a blue mood therefore all of us were pretty excited as one of them is working base in Shanghai so we don't get to meet up as and when we like and he's not able to be back in sg that often! :( Really appreciate the times when we're together and all of them are older than me, they always gave me really good advises! How good to have mature friends around you?! :) Anyway, I knew them from my ex company and I'm glad most of us who left still remain as very close friends till today! Skype is really a good social network for all of us to keep in contact every single day with non stop topics!


What a sweet treats day! Macarons madness!
Thanks to Pig and Honey! (nicknames between us)

Followed by dessert after lunch at PAUL. Their dessert is the boom, soooooooooo good!

More of gathering like this to come real soon! Already can't wait to see all of you again!

#RebecceMinkoff 'Mini Mac in Hot Red! 

Red is gonna be my next favorite color? Hehe!
All thanks to my boyfriend for getting this red baby for me!

Do not judge by its name - mini mac. Because it's not mini at all! It can fit quite a number things and I'm really amazed by it! It can fit my small wallet, camera, handphone, foundation, tissue, sunglasses and there's still space! Tell me, how to not this mini mac? Days when I'm lazy to carry big heavy bags, this bag is really the best option be it for the day or night, weekend or weekdays. Now that I got this sling bag, I made her my every weekends bag. Detachable shoulder chain strap for crossbody and the gunmetal hardware is not silver, but a slightly darker color which looks like chanel boy's one la! Hahaha!

People who know me well knows that I don't buy black color bags, because I find that black is boring. Not only black can matches every of your outfit, it depends on how you see and match it actually. So far, I find no problem in matching my bags with any of the outfit I wear. Especially the one in orange. You know? If you're following me on my Instagram, you'll know! :)

Yup, this brand is not available in Singapore yet but don't worry, you don't have to buy a ticket and fly over to other countries to get it because some luxury shops in sg do bring in this brand!

I know some people bought this bag at Shopbob as well, but that's only by courier. So if you wanna feel it in person and get it on the spot without any wait, be sure to check out their outlets. They have a few outlets in sg, click on the link that I provided and it will direct you to their official website. I went to their main boutique to get this new baby as I'm afraid that other outlets might not have the color I want, super kiasu! Haha! And what's more, they're having SALES right now!!! OMG, MADNESS! So if you're planing to get a sling bag or any other brand bags, accessories, etc. What're you waiting for?!
