Exilis Treatment (Face) at Prive Aesthetics

I was invited to try out the Exilis Treatment (Face) at Prive Aesthetics sometime last year. Prive is located at Palais Renaissance,#03-02, 390 Orchard Road, Singapore 238871.


Exilis Treatment is a non-evasive form of treatment (no surgery whatsoever) for the reduction of wrinkles and for the reshaping of targeted fat deposits. Currently, this is the fastest, most powerful non-invasive aesthetics device available in the market. How it works is that it uses thermal energy to induce positive changes in the skin and body. A comfortable deep heating sensation is experienced with each short treatment session.

Patients can see a visible reduction in wrinkles and this treatment also remodels the skin. It is also highly effective for body contouring. Apart from that, this treatment is not painful, there is no downtime and is scientifically proven and clinically tested.

It is a pretty hefty treatment at $650 a pop to reshape and slim down the face and $800 a pop to reshape targeted areas in the body but visible results can be seen in just a mere 4 sessions within 4 to 6 weeks.

It is a very simple procedure that takes about 30 minutes or so. Firstly, a cooling gel will be applied all over the face. This cooling gel acts as a barrier between the skin from the heat that is penetrating from the device. The heat used is pretty bearable at 40 degrees celcius or so. Heat is kept constant to allow the radio frequency wave to penetrate easily into my skin. This will help to reduce lines and wrinkles. Do note that is gets quite unbearable at the forehead area as the forehead is rather bony in structure. Apart from this minor discomfort, I would say that the Exilis Treatment is a pretty painless procedure and this treatment is definitely great for ladies who are looking for a "lunch-time fix" as it takes about 30 minutes or so.

BEFORE: Dark circles, puffiness around the eyes.

AFTER: Dark circles lightened, puffiness almost non-visible.

I was pleasantly surprised with the results as a difference could be seen in just one session. I would highly recommend this treatment.

If you are interested, kindly call 6737 0755 to arrange your appointment or visit Prive Aesthetics website: http://www.priveaesthetics.com/ and Facebook page: www.facebook.com/priveaesthetics for more information on its aesthetics treatment and promotions.

Product Review: Olay White Radiance CelLucent White Essence Serum

I was recently provided with Olay White Radiance CelLucent White Essence Serum for product review purposes. I have tested the product out for two weeks and here are my thoughts on the product.

Olay's White Radiance range is suited for the 20-30s age group. It is created for people who want an even and brighten complexion. I am rather fair by most people's standards, and every time I try out a whitening product, it is not so much on being fairer, but rather, like all other whitening products which I like is what it does is to really even out the skin's complexion by reducing skin pigmentation, sun burn and appearance of scars and make it look less blotchy. With a more even complexion, the skin will look more radiant, much brighter and free from impurities so I was really enthusiastic about trying the Olay White Radiance CelLucent White Essence Serum out.

It comes in a dropper bottle which is great because I can control the amount of product used without any product wastage.

The texture of this particular serum is very light. It is somewhat in between creamy and watery. I love the fact that it spreads and absorbs into the skin very easily and it is definitely hydrating. Also, it dries off almost instantly and it does not leave a sticky feeling behind. It is also lightly scented with a pleasant floral fragrance.


After doing a test run on the product for two weeks, I am happy to say that the product did work for me. My skin is more even and toned. I did not become a shade lighter because my foundation and powder still matches my skin tone but my skin definitely did brighten, looks much healthier and also more radiant and even.

I would highly recommend this because it works amazingly well on me. It is also priced rather attractively which is another plus point. I hope this review did somewhat help in helping you make an informed decision on the product.

My experience at Marie France BodyLine

I was recently invited to experience and review Marie France BodyLine's slimming treatments some time late last month. My appointment was scheduled on 25th March 2013 at their Jurong Point outlet. I chose Jurong Point as it was the most convenient location for me.

Marie France BodyLine have established themselves as a well renowed slimming centre in Singapore. Marie France BodyLine is established in Switzerland and has more than 20 years of experience in helping individuals to lose weight naturally. Marie France BodyLine offers weight-loss and inch-loss solutions without strict dieting, strenuous exercise or pills. The key to Marie France BodyLine's advanced weight management treatments is the intensive research and development carried out at their laboratories worldwide where innovative formulas using powerful active compounds are created, and innovative technologies are developed to address the many common body complaints of today's women, including excess fat tissue, cellulite woes and lack of skin elasticity. Marie France BodyLine consultants are highly trained and qualified in many aspects of health care. All Marie France BodyLine's slimming programmes are 100% safe, all natural and are free from the use of dangerous pills or injections. In addition, they are suitable for both men and women. As a leading provider of slimming service in Asia, Marie France Bodyline operates a network of centers in Hong Kong, China, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia and Brunei. It is also the first slimming center in Singapore and it was established in 1986.

The interior and decor of the Jurong Point outlet is very warm and inviting. It makes one feel at ease and I find that it is very tastefully done and sleek. I particular liked that they used full panels of mirrors to enlarge the room visually.

I sat patiently in their plush sofas while waiting for one of their consultants to attend to me. While waiting, a lady asked whether I would like green tea or plain water. I opted for plain water as I am not too much of a fan of unsweetened chinese green tea.

The first consultant to attend to me was their food nutritionist. She asked me about my eating habits and patterns and after consultation, I found out that I have very irregular meal times due to my extremely hectic schedule and this is detrimental to my health. It slows down my metabolism rate and it is much harder to lose weight in the long run. She did gave me some advice like to plan my meals in advance so that I do not opt for a takeout which is an unhealthy choice and also to eat my meals at the same time everyday. Eating at the same time everyday actually helps the body settle into a consistent rhythm and it helps to increase the metabolism rate and in turn helps the body to burn more fats = weight loss, which is the ultimate goal.

After I talked to the food nutritionist, I talked to one of their slimming consultants which did a full body analysis for me. She took my weight on a machine that not only measures my weight, but also measures the fat percentage in my body. I found out that my fat percentage is rather high for my weight.

Below is a comparison of one pound of fat VS one pound of muscle. Both is essentially the same weight, but the muscle occupies a much smaller space as compared to the fat. My concern is to look more toned and defined, I am not too worried about the numbers on the scale. Basically, I could possibly still weigh the same if I were to have less fat and more muscle but look much smaller.

Though I am of acceptable weight, I am not the most slimmest individual and I do have a few problem areas that I wish to address. My problem areas are my upper arms, stomach, hips and thighs. Overall, I think I am very flabby and untoned possibly attributed to lack of exercise and poor, unhealthy eating habits.

The 2 treatments that I tried out were the Intelect Spot Shaping (ISS) treatment for my upper arm (full treatment) and Contour Sculpt Body System (CSBS) for my stomach, hips and thighs (exclusive trial). Treatmend bed awaits!

I was brought to the treatment room by another consultant and was asked to change out of my clothes. I was given a bathrobe, disposable panties and also a pair of bedroom slippers.
They do have a locker room if you wish to put your belongings in them before the treatment. Apart from that, you may also use their ladies before the treatment.

All ready for the treatment to begin!

The first treatment that I tried out was the Intelect Spot Shaping (ISS) treatment for my flabby upper arms. This treatment is specially created to eliminate the stubborn fat deposit from undesirable spots like flabby thighs, tummy and in my case, upper arms. It is a non invasive technology that incorporates proven techniques of using ultrasound for breaking down fats and Marie France BodyLine's signature Fat Mobilisation System (FMS) body wrap concept.

The mixture of gel and creams used on my arms and body... and my plain water!

My upper arm was gently cleansed with a hot towel before the consultant applied the ultrasound gel and anti cellulite serum mixture on my upper arm. The gel and serum solution is extremely cold. After applying the solution, the consultant used a handheld device called the intellect mobile ultrasound on my upper arms for about 10 minutes on each arm. The tingling sensation from the device did make my arms ache a little but it was bearable. After using the device, she then massaged my upper arms, this time using her hands, with more of the anti cellulite serum. My oh my, her massage did made me wince.  It made my arms ache do bad, but I endured. After the almost half an hour long massage, she then used the Fat Mobilisation System (FMS) body wrap, which looks like a bandage, on my upper arms before wrapping up the whole treatment session.

After the Intelect Spot Shaping (ISS) treatment for my upper arm (full treatment), she then slathered on some cold gel of some sort on my stomach, hips and thighs liberally before wrapping my body up with a shrink wrap. It is an exclusive trial for the Contour Sculpt Body System (CSBS) and not a full treatment, so no massage or machines were used on the problem areas mentioned.

I was then brought to another room to sit and wait while the gel does its magic on my body. It is a small private room all by myself.

 I was shivering at this point because the waiting room was extremely cold. I was really thankful that the consultant provided with a towel and wrap it around my body. She also provided me with a hot bottle for me to hug to keep myself warm.

After about 20 minutes or so, the consultant came in and removed all the shrink wrap on my body. She also gave me a dry towel and a pail of warm water so that I could wash myself up before changing into my own clothes.

After changing into my own clothes, the consultant who gave me the full body analysis brought me to a private room to ask me about my experience. She also showed me some of the packages that she thought I would be interested in but I politely declined.

Overall, my experience at Marie France BodyLine was an extremely pleasant one. I need to commend on the professionalism of their staff. All of them are very courteous and attentive throughout and they really have your needs in mind.

Product Review: Vita Green Lingzhi Supplement

A few weeks ago, I was sent a box of Vita Green Lingzhi Supplement for product review purposes.
The supplement comes in a capsule form and it incorporates natural wild lingzhi. Lingzhi (Ganoderma Lucidum) is an ancient chinese herb that belongs to the basidiomycotina class of fungi. It is the rarest and most precious Chinese medical herbs. It is also rated as a superior type of Chinese herbs. Lingzhi contains high content of Germanium, Complex Polysaccharides, Polysacchaaride Peptides and Triterpenoids. All these substances are known to be effective in strengthening the immune system and restoring normal bodily functions. Also, Lingzhi was said to be able to provide energy, restore sensitivity, promote blood circulation and improve complexion. It can strengthen the immune system, promote blood circulation, give you extra energy, improve complexion and slows down the signs of aging. 

Chinese doctors have long stressed the importance of harvesting Lingzhi in its natural habitat. However, Lingzhi is very selective of its environment and can only be found in the deepest part of the untamed mountain forests. Wild Lingzhi is darker in colour, stronger in aroma and harder than cultivated Lingzhi. Vita Green Lingzhi supplement is made from 100% Wild Lingzhi harvested in the natural forests in China and each capsule contains 3.78grams of Natural Wild Lingzhi (Ganoderma Lucidum).

Vita Green Lingzhi Supplement is suitable for all ages, all sexes and can be consumed over an extensive period of time. It can be taken for preventive purposes or for restoration purposes. Long term consumption can lead to good health and longevity. 

I have consumed the product orally on a daily basis for two weeks and here is my thoughts on the product. The recommended dosage is 1-2 capsule(s) taken orally. I am currently consuming 2 capsules daily, together with my other supplements, like evening primrose and such, one in the morning as soon as I wake up and the other at night, before I head to bed. Each bottle has 72 capsules, so if I were to continue consuming 2 capsules daily, one bottle can last me for 36 days or slightly more than a month. So far, I have not developed any side effects to the supplement and I have not suffered any breakouts to the skin after consuming the product but it is still too early to tell. This product is best used for an extensive period of time.
The product is available for purchase at Guardians at an introductory offer of SGD$109 (U.P SGD$129).

Product Review: Amethystory Mineral Yogurt Mask

Amethystory Mineral Yogurt Mask is the latest product from Amethystory. It is a yogurt mask that provides instant brightening and hydration for the skin.

Amethyst Mineral Yogurt Mask builds upon the natural goodness of premium yogurt with the additional special blend of Amethyst, Tranexamic acid, Hyaluronic acid, Bio Energy Fluid, Ginseng, Olive Oil and Yogurt Powder.
After using the mask, the skin will become instantly brighter and more radiant, feels more moisturized, supple and soft. With prolonged, regular usage, the skin will become more fairer and even and it will give you a natural radiant glow from within.
Product efficacies of Amethystory Mineral Yogurt Mask:

  • Intensively nourishes and rejuvenates the skin, for a soft and smooth complexion.
  •  Excellent whitening and brightening of the skin, giving a naturally fair and radiant complexion.
  •  Deeply hydrates and locks in moisture, for a supple and healthy looking skin. 
  • Helps to keep the skin refreshed and cool.
  • Non-greasy formula for easy and deep absorption into the skin.
The Amethystory Mineral Yogurt Mask comes in a tub. I am not a fan of products in a tub because I find it rather troublesome to use a spatula to scoop out the product (this product does not come with a spatula) and honestly, it is rather unhygienic and messy to just dip my fingers into it. Though this product requires that additional step, I find that is it worth it as it did impress me.

The product is quite thick and creamy and it feels and smells just like yogurt. It spreads rather thinly on the skin, feels very rich yet not greasy on the skin.

Directions to use are as follows.
I did as instructed putting a thin layer all over my face for about 30 minutes before rinsing it off. I find that the product is rather hard to be rinsed off, but still manageable. After rinsing it off completely, I was thoroughly impressed that my skin did in fact look much brighter and more radiant. My skin also has a slight glow which I really love and it did hydrate my skin rather well. It is affordably priced at SGD$18.90 and it is available locally at Watsons, Guardian and all other leading pharmacies and supermarket.

Can a product float on air? You gotta see Magic Babe Ning's gravity-defying act!


Magic Babe Ning amazingly manages to float a product in the air making it seem that the product is surprisingly light. Pretty cool levitation trick, I would say! Worth a watch and sharing it with your friends!

Product review: Selsun Blue 2-In-1 Maximum Strength Dandruff Shampoo & Conditioner




Selsun Blue 2-In-1 Maximum Strength Dandruff Shampoo & Conditioner is specially formulated to control the scaling, flaking and itching of the scalp associated with dandruff.

 Selsun Blue 2-In-1 Maximum Strength Dandruff Shampoo & Conditioner is formulated with Selenium Sulfide 1%. It not only attacks the root source of the dandruff, but laboratory tests have also shown that Selenium Sulfide is one of the most effective ingredient to treat dandruff and control recurrence. It is the anti-dandruff shampoo prescribed by doctors and 99% of the user claim that it is effective in treating dandruff.



 I use it as a clarifying shampoo once a week to clear my scalp of any residue and build up that may cause dandruff. The shampoo is orange in colour and it has a pleasant, floral, fruity scent. It also foams and lathers up really well when used on my hair. It is really effective and my scalp does not feel itchy after wash. I would use it sparingly though as it is rather drying for my hair. Overall, I would highly recommend it.

Review: Biore Skin Caring Cleanser Series: Facial Foam Scrub + Facial Foam Acne Care

I recently received Biore's facial foam and scrub for product review purposes. It is from their latest range which is the Skin Caring Cleanser Series.
The latest range uses SPT: Skin Purifying Technology which has high cleansing efficacy as compared to its competitors. It is also not damaging to the skin and it will not penetrate into the skin. As the cleansing chemical does not penetrate into the skin, it will be gentle and non-irritating to the skin. Apart from that, it will not leave behind any residue and dirt on the skin and will also vitalize the skin.

It is also the first cleanser that supports and boost the skin's natural ability to self renew and regenerate. Its main focus is to work on rebalancing the skin by reducing the oil at the T-ZONE (Forehead & Nose) and to replenish the moisture at the U-ZONE (Cheek & Chin).
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
It claims that you will see visible improvement in 14 days. The skin will be more hydrated, less clogged pores and controlled sebum production. It will also lighten marks and blemishes.

The Biore Facial Foam Scrub is for all skin types.
Accumulated oil, impurities and dead skin cells can clog pores and make the skin look rough, dull and lifeless. With the use of this cleansing scrub, you will reveal a healthy and glowing skin. It has ultra fine beads to remove impurities and unclog pores. It is also gentle enough for daily use

The Biore Facial Foam Scrub will remove dead skin and dirt from pores in the T-ZONE and retain moisture and optimises hydration in the U-ZONE.
The Biore Facial Foam Scrub feels really gentle on the skin because of its ultra fine beads. It is not harsh on the skin like some other scrubs. The Biore Facial Foam Scrub will work great as a daily scrub cleanser.

The Biore Facial Foam Acne Care is made for blemish-prone skin. It is a purifying and mild cleanser that thoroughly clears and helps prevent acne without drying the skin out. It has anti-bacterial and anti-inflammation ingredient to aid acne-prevention. It is also non-comedogenic.

The Biore Facial Foam Acne Care cleanser will cleanse, unclog pores and reduce sebum in the T-ZONE and hydrates, calms and soothes the U-ZONE.
The Biore Facial Foam Acne Care foams and lathers up really well so it feels like it is gliding on the skin's surface. It is also a gentle product, similar to its scrub.

After the usage of both products together, scrub first then cleanser, I find that both products is very gentle on my skin. My skin does not feel tight and dry after cleansing and I find that my skin feels more moisturised and supple. I would highly recommend this product.

Review: Sunplay Skin Aqua UV Moisture Milk SPF50 PA+++


I recently received the Sunplay Skin Aqua UV Moisture Milk SPF50 PA+++ some time back for product review purposes. I have tested the product for more than a week and here is my thoughts on the product.



Sunplay Skin Aqua UV Moisture Milk SPF50 PA+++ feels ultra light on the skin with its Japanese watery liquid texture. It also does not feel greasy when applied onto the skin and it does not have the usual strong sunscreen smell. It absorbs into the skin quickly and unlike many other sunscreens, it does not leave a white cast after application. I find that it works great as a make-up primer too because of its non-greasy and matt powdery finish.

Sunplay Skin Aqua UV Moisture Milk SPF50 PA+++ is also fragrance, color, alcohol and oil free and is suitable for all skin types.

Sunplay Skin Aqua UV Moisture Milk SPF50 PA+++ has Solarex-3, a revolutionary formula with 3 comprehensive levels of UV defense. Not only it protects the skin from surface to deep within for longer hours, it is also very hydrating too.

The 3 benefits of the New Generation Solarex-3 (3-in-1 Sun Protection) are:


  • Long lasting, superior UV protection: Advanced photo-stability with the highest UVA & UVB protection for long periods of safe sun exposure. UV rays are reflected away like from a mirror.
  • UV Anti-aging Protection: Two powerful anti-aging ingredients, RonaCare Exotin and French Golden Algae, help to prevent pigmentation and wrinkles from surface to deep within.
  • Intense Hydration: Hyaluronic Acid, Collagen & Vitamin E intensely hydrate and lock-in moisture for long hours, so skin stays refreshingly moist. 
If you are interested in purchasing the product, Sunplay products are available at Watsons, Guardian, Sasa, Unity and other major department stores.

Hair Makeover at Shunji Matsuo Ngee Ann City

A month back or so, I was at Shunji Matsuo - Ngee Ann City outlet.
Image and video hosting by TinyPic Image and video hosting by TinyPic Image and video hosting by TinyPic
(Above pictures taken from their official Facebook page) 

Shunji Matsuo has relocated its flagship store to the 5th floor of Ngee Ann City and I was invited to try out their services.

I opted to try out their colouring + hair treatment services. My rebonded hair was about 2 weeks old prior to my visit at Shunji Matsuo. I had my hair soft-rebonded at another salon. 

I was quite sick of my hair colour which has faded quite considerably to a bright copper so I told them that I wanted to go really dark with some subtle highlights. Basically, I wanted something that is rather easy to maintain. This was the look that I was going for. It is a dark black base with dark brown highlights. 
Image and video hosting by TinyPicImage and video hosting by TinyPic

Nao, the international director, (most right) was my stylist for the day. Her assistants added in the highlights first using the foiling method before adding in colour to the rest of the hair.

The waiting process begins...

After colouring and highlighting, one of the assistants did a hair treatment for me. 

The hair treatment that she opted for me was the Armino Botanical Garden Treatment which was one of the latest hair treatments offered by Shunji Matsuo. The treatment is a five-step process specially customized and formulated to suit and treat individual hair conditions. 

The treatment starts from $140 for a 45-minute session. Definitely money well-spent in my opinion as the stylist was very thorough throughout the hair treatment session. The service provided by the stylist was impeccable and I have nothing but raves for the hair treatment session.

After the hair treatment session, they blow-dryed my hair and styled it to perfection. Nao, my stylist, even offered to do a haircut for me to even out my ends.

Here's how I look after the colouring, highlighting, treatment and styling... I LOVE IT!

A close up.

Unfortunately, the highlights was too subtle, it cannot be seen. Nao, my stylist offered to re-do my highlights for me and so, I was at Shunji Matsuo for the second time.

A quick look at how my hair looks before they re-do the highlights.

 Foiling process...

 Here's how it looks like after re-doing my highlights...

 After styling...

The service delivered by Nao and her team was nothing but excellent and I was thoroughly impressed, yet again. Highly recommended and you will definitely not be disappointed.

Shunji Matsuo - Ngee Ann City is located at Ngee Ann City, Podium B, 391 Orchard Road, Unit #05-23, Singapore 238872. The salon is open daily from 10am to 10pm and kindly call +65 62381522 to make an appointment.
