[REVIEW] Glow with Dr Jart+ Premium Blemish Base [SPF45/PA+++]

I had a little introduction done at my previous post: CLICK HERE

And yes, I'm almost done with my little 15ml tube of Dr Jart+ Blemish Base.
I'm not really a fan of BB creams, that's why you seldom see me posting on it.
There's nothing to dislike about them but let's just say that I'm more of a powder girl.

And here's the verdict...
I'm a HUGE fan of collagen products & I've been consuming collagen supplements since 2008.

Having clear skin is a magnet for compliments and also gives one added confidence.

Now, I've got to try out this wonderful collagen drink; Kinohimitsu J'pan Beauty Drink for 

So why would you need a collagen supplement?

Wise words by Paula Begoun

When I turned beauty addict in 2007 and couldn't stop browsing beauty sites like
I happened to chance upon the Beauty Commandments by her and posted it on one of my private beauty blogs.
And I was browsing through my old blogs today ... Oh, this piece of advice is sucha a gem.
Hence, I've decided to share it with all of you!

  1. THOU SHALT NOT believe expensive cosmetics are better than inexpensive cosmetics. Women who spend more money on cosmetics do not necessarily have better skin than those who don't. Many expensive lines own the inexpensive lines, ingredient quality doesn’t differ between inexpensive and expensive lines, and cosmetics chemists are not chained to one company.
  2. THOU SHALT NOT believe there is any such thing as a “natural” cosmetic (or that natural means better).
  3. THOU SHALT NOT believe in miracle ingredients that can cure skin-care woes.
  4. THOU SHALT NOT covet thy neighbor’s perfect skin (or believe her perfect skin came from a particular product or cosmetics line; skin is more complicated than that).
  5. THOU SHALT NOT believe everything a cosmetics salesperson says. Read the ingredient list, try the product on, and be willing to return what doesn’t work or fails to live up to the claim on the label, while also being very, very skeptical.
  6. THOU SHALT NOT use the tiny applicators that come packaged with eyeshadows and blushes. Professional makeup artists never use these so why should you?
  7. THOU SHALT NOT believe in the existence of any anti-wrinkle, firming, toning, lifting, or filling-in creams, lotions, or masks that can permanently erase wrinkles. (I wish it were so, but nothing on the horizon other than surgery can do that.
  8. THOU SHALT NOT be seduced by every new promotion, new product, or new product line that the cosmetics industry creates.
  9. THOU SHALT NOT get a tan. Sun exposure (even minimal amounts) is the primary reason that skin wrinkles and develops skin cancer.
  10. THOU SHALT NOT buy a cellulite cream, nor shalt thou assume it's possible to dissolve fat from the outside in, because you absolutely cannot.
  11. THOU SHALT NOT see pictures of pubescent, anorexic models (who spend two hours getting their hair and makeup done and another two hours posing while the photographer and a corps of assistants determine the most flattering lighting, after which the resulting picture goes through a battery of digitally enhanced touch-ups and adjustments) and believe you will get the same (or even similar) results from using the products being advertised.
  12. THOU SHALT NOT buy products from an infomercial or a home shopping network, especially when the praise goes on and on with no opposing information. You are receiving an extremely one-sided point of view.
  13. THOU SHALT NOT believe words and phrases such as “hypoallergenic”, “noncomedogenic”, “for sensitive skin”, “dermatologist tested”, “exclusive formula”, “increases moisture content” (by some astronomical percentage), or any other gross, unsupported generalization about a product.
  14. THOU SHALT NOT buy cosmetic hormone creams assuming you can replace dietary sources of plant hormone or medically prescribed hormone therapy.
  15. The ultimate commandment is: THOU SHALT be an informed consumer, because what you don't know can cost you dearly in terms of your skin, appearance, and money.

Drink Up to Beauty with Kinohimitsu J'pan Beauty Drink

This blog post is a few days early but I just wish to share a little on my experience drinking this yummilicious collagen supplement for close to 2 weeks.
I highly recommend it served chilled and before bed time.
I don't really like having chilled drinks before breakfast because it's wee hours in the morning but yes, you have do a choice as it's recommended that you may have it before breakfast or bed time.

Why is collagen so essential?

Yup, I guess the above chart shows it all.
Lack of collagen plus a number of negative factors is the root of all skin problems.
As we age, the production of collagen slows down and skin may start to appear lackluster & saggy.

Therefore, this is when Kinohimitsu J'pan Beauty Drink comes into the picture, to provide high concentrations of collagen that will help pump up skin.
Best of all? It’s 100% natural, safe and contains no additives.

So far, skin has been looking good and makeup glides on easily each time.
The taste is unbelievably good, it's even better than whatever collagen drinks I've tried before.
Currently. I still have around 2 weeks more of supply to finish up before I give the final verdict of what I think of this wonderful collagen supplement. I'm real excited and can't wait to blog about it, especially what wholesome goodness is found in each Kinohimitsu J'pan Beauty Drink.

Do stay tuned for my blog entry in 2 weeks' time :)

Kinohimitsu J'pan Beauty Drinks are available at Watsons, Guardian, SASA, Nishino Pharmacies, John Little, Robinsons, ALT, Natural/Organic Stores and Individual Pharmacies.

Thank you Confirm Trading for the chance to try out the Kinohimitsu J'pan Beauty Drink.

Aloe Lips with Jojoba - The unofficial first aid kit

It's no secret that I have perpetually chapped lips.
I do get quite a number of lip balm samples but I hardly have the time to use them.
I guess that's a better excuse then to admit that I'm too lazy.

Anyway, when I first read about the Forever Living's Aloe Lips being labelled as an unofficial first aid kit, I admit that I was slightly puzzled.
Then it dawned upon me that you could apply this on anywhere of your skin whenever you had a scrap, burn, insect bite, cut or sore.
Yes, this not only handy but extremely useful tube is more than a lip balm that will moisturize & soothe your chapped lips.

However, it does sounds unhygienic if you use this on your lips and your injured bits, right?
What I would suggest is to get 2 of these, 1 specifically for the lips and 1 for the other nicks & cuts.

Aloe Vera is known to have powerful healing properties and Forever Living's Aloe Lips contains this soothing ingredient that is so amazingly beneficial to injured skin.

Aloe vera extract, jojoba oil, beewax and allatoin can be found in this tube of balm.

It has a slight sweet scent which I kind of relish and this balm keeps my lips moisturized in the air-conditioned office and back at home too.
So do check out this amazing product.
Grab yours from VINCI LIPGLOSS blogshop now!

Totally Unnecessary Skin Care Products by TotalBeauty.Com

I happened to be beauty site surfing one night and came across this article.
I thought it was interesting and hence, decided to share it on my blog.
I apolgize for the lack of updates on some weeks as I am currently so busy with other aspects of my life.

For sponsors etc, do bear with me as I take some time to try out your products before I can do up a review.
I have quite abit of backlog for now.
Do bear with me, your understanding is really appreciated!


Totally Unnecessary Skin Care Products by TotalBeauty.Com

I don't know about you, but I feel vulnerable walking the aisles of CVS or perusing the beauty counters at Macy's. With over 10,000 skin care companies trying to convince me that I need a different cream for every body part and that if I have a wrinkle here, a stretch mark there then I am doomed to some sort of ugly-hell (friends stop calling, I get fired and my boyfriend cheats on me), so how can I know what I actually need and which skin care products are totally useless?


To help us weed through the hype, I went to dermatologist Dr. Harold Lancer to figure out which skin care products (general product types, not necessarily specific ones) for our face or body are totally pointless.
Here are some of the 9 unnecessary products he says can be left on the shelf:

[REIVEW] Facial at Allure Beauty with Atache Products

A couple of weeks back this Dec, I was invited for a facial trial by Allure Beauty at their Tiong Bahru branch.

It's located on the 5th floor of Tiong Bahru Plaza, which is just a stone's throw away from the MRT Station.
Hence, making it really convenient for me since both my home & office are only a few stops away.

Upon arrival, I was greeted by friendly faces and given a nice cup of hot tea.
Their beauty consultant was professional in her analysis, she could tell that I had combination skin with just one look.
A more detailed analysis of my skin was ....
