AFC Collagen : AFC Beauty Radiance Set Review + [Win a 90-day Collagen Beauty Pack]

Here's my review as promised :)
I have been taking the pills from the Beauty Radiance set for close to a month already.
If you have not read my introduction on AFC & why collagen supplements will aid you with your anti-aging regime. Do check out my previous BLOG POST here.

In conjunction with their 40th anniversary promos, they have packed the collagen supplement into this limited edition set.
So what's included ?




Photobucket


90-Day Collagen Beauty Pack x 1
90-Day Hyaluronic Acid & Collagen Pack x 1
FREE 30-Day Collagen Beauty Travel Pack x 1


As previously mentioned in my earlier blog entry, usual price for the AFC Beauty Radiance Set is S$114.20 but with AFC Japan's 40th anniversary promotion, it is now available at a special price of just S$88.90.
Which I find really worth it and a few of my friends have bought the Beauty Radiance set after reading my blog entry.

As a lady in her mid-twenties, starting on anti-aging is not far from my mind. We all start to age the moment we hit 20-21 years old and prevention is better than cure. Once the wrinkles and other ugly aging signs start to set in, there is nothing much you can do about it. Why splurge thousands on botox or other cosmetic surgery procedures when you can try to delay it now?

I must admit that I have not been taking good care of my skin. On some nights when I am so tired out, I just go to bed after cleansing my face. Yes, *guilty-look*, I do not follow up with toning & moisturizing, which is really bad :( However, I do remember to take my supplements as it's so simple. Just open your mouth and pop the pills in, gulp down a mouthful of water and you're done.

Of course, it is also recommended that you eat the supplements around 10PM and then go to bed immediately. As the skin rejuvenates from 10PM to 2AM, so if you keep missing these precious hours of sleep. You are definitely NOT getting your beauty sleep at all!

I think that so far, my skin is still doing fine despite all that I have and not have been doing to maintain it.
So it must be the collagen & hyaluronic acid supplements at work! My pimples are kept at bay, oil control has been pretty good and makeup goes on well. Taking these supplements makes battling anti-aging almost effortless and hassle-free.




Besides that, the packaging makes it so convenient to bring out. A bottle is too bulky to luge around in your handbag but these mini zip-lock packs are handy enough to bring along even if you are going overseas. You need not worry about having to transferring them into a pillbox (read: BULKY).



The size of the pills are also small enough, it makes it so easy to swallow in comparison to the previous brand I was taking. I had a difficult time swallowing them and the taste was pretty awful if I were to chew on it. However, AFC Japan's collagen pills did not leave a bitter after-taste at all.


I'm loving my AFC Japan pills!

Looks for Fall 2010 by Pret-A-Beaute: Recreate the look with budget products

Pret-A-Beaute brings you the 4 fall makeup trends this 2010.
And for those who are on a tight budget, thou shallnt fret as I'll just introduce some budget products you could use to recreate these looks.

The whole nude natural look is hot in the trend charts, and so is the defined eyes and nude lips combination that is all the rage in Japan right now.


I'm totally digging this whole au naturel look. It gives one a very clean, minimalist feel. Great as day makeup to the office or even out for high tea with the girlfriends.

Nude lips can be achieved with the Sana lip concealer



I realized that I prefer to wear it on its own then with the lip gloss. Maybe cause of the matt finish it gives.... Guess I am not a fan of glossy lips.

Thank you L'oreal for the invite to preview the latest cosmetic range - HiP (Highly Intensity Pigments).
As the name suggests, be prepared to be wow over by bright and trendy colors in this collection.
The eye shadows are richly pigmented for a more intense and long-lasting look.


The range is imported from US and Singapore's fortunate enough to be the FIRST in Asia to have it in stores!

You're not limited to using the duo colors in each tub but encouraged to mix and match the shades from more then one.

Part III of Aqualabel Blogger's Challenge Journey : Video Round


Firstly, I am really glad that I have made it to this round. However, this was also one of my most dreaded stage. Unlike the other seasoned bloggers who often did vlogs (video blogging), I was a complete newbie at this.


I have never ever taken any video of myself, much less presenting a product in one. And I was really self-conscious of how I would appear in the video. Would I make a fool of myself? Was I gonna screw up my lines? Was I gonna look so fat in it?

On top of that, I was busy with work and the days went past with a twinkle of the eye, I did not even have time to prepare a proper script for the video.

[REVIEW] Award-winning ZA Cosmetics - ZA Ever Brow Eyebrow Liner

Before I go on, have you visited ZA's revamped website?
It's so hip, cool and PINK now in comparison to the boring old static page it used to be. I'm totally awed the moment I visited it though I must admit the background jingle is driving me nuts.
Check out ZA OFFICIAL WEBSITE

Anyway, previously I'd blogged about ZA winning the Watsons award for Best-selling Eyebrow Pencil in 2010. I've received the ZA Ever Brow in BR21 which is like a deep black-brownish shade and I'm loving this product! *Muacks*

From SASA, False Eyelashes aka Falsies Review

If you know me personally, you'll know that I just simply can't live without my falsies.



Why wear falsies? Because they open up the eyes and we all know that the EYES are windows to the soul. Don't you wanna have dazzling eyes??
With falsies and the right eye makeup, you can smoother anyone with your glaze.

Do you have dry, damaged hair but oily scalp? [ Shampoo + Hair Mask Review ]

I'm cursed with dry, damaged hair but with an oily scalp. So most products I use will conflict with each other. Previously, I was trying out L'Oreal's Elseve Damage Care shampoo for colored and damaged hair but it was too rich and ended up giving me flaky scalp or what's more commonly known as dandruff.


The culprit - too nourishing for my scalp?

Liese new hair colors - Looks good!



Looks good, especially the Platinum Beige one.
I love the ash blond look but can never seem to achieve that color without bleaching my hair. So I'm wondering if using a DIY hair color dye will be able to ensure such end results?

Maybe I should try once my highlights grow out BUT I'm seriously way too lazy to DIY :(
