CAMWHORING WITH LOKI

Haha… Did a little comic strip of Loki using some left over photos I had from the advert. Would be such a waste if I were to delete them, he look so cute in all the pictures!! Hope you like my french bulldog as much as I do! 

By the way, some of you have asked me if I am no longer active on ask.fm. Yes I have removed it from my blog because it has became a platform for unnecessary criticisms. The reason why I had ask.fm in the first place is to share related information with my readers, people who truly wants to communicate with me. However, I remembered someone once asked me 

'Why doesn't *this certain blogger* have ask.fm? If people don't like her, how do we tell her?' 

OMG seriously?! Have ask.fm/formspring became a platform for keyboard warriors to criticise bloggers? So I've closed it. For people who genuinely wants to ask me reasonable questions, you can leave a comment on my blogpost, or ask me on my Instagram (I'll reply). Anyway, happy 2014.

LET IT SNOW LET IT SNOW

Haven't had a date like this for quite sometime. After spending 5 years together, every routine errand eventually turns to a date. I'm grateful that you're willing to accompany me to such a kiddish place, I had so much fun. Sliding down the ice together made me forget about all that petty issues we had. You promised, every 7th…

THE DRx CLINIC | ESSENTIAL FACIAL

Sponsored by DRx
This would be my third visit to DRx! On my second visit, I told Dr Tan that my acne is pretty much under control (except during my period, the hormones just goes crazy and I get more pimples than usual). The acne was in control but there was still a lot of oil clogs that are bubbling under my skin, when I run my fingers across my cheeks and forehead, I can feel it beneath my skin. Therefore, Dr Tan suggested that I go for DRx's facial treatment to remove all that clogged up dirt under my skin! So here's my visit:
DRx Clinic and DRx Spa is located at two different areas (but still on the same level), the spa area interior feels more cosy and warm compared to the clinic. 
As usual, I had to fill up my particulars before proceeding to the treatments. 
This would be the spa room where you get your facial treatments done! I noticed that the bed is very clean, there's not unsightly stains or anything. Most facial places that I visited have stains on their sheets. 
This is my facial condition before the treatment begin. I had two or three active pimples, but very serious clogged pores! 


ESSENTIAL FACIAL:
So I was recommended to do the Essential Facial treatment. The Essential Facial is DRx's fundamental treatment for the maintenance of a good complexion. It consists of Ultrasonic cleansing, Ultrasonic Nutrient Delivery and therapeutic facial mask. Essential Facial is a highly popular award-winning program that has won the CozyCot Holy Grail Award 2008 and the All Time Favourite Facial of Elle Magazine's Beauty IT List 2009.

1. MILK CLEANSE X DOUBLE CLEANSE:
My beautician, Nicole, examining my skin condition. She was telling me the areas that I need to specifically apply my medicine on, cause certain areas were extremely oily and clogged. After examining, Nicole did a milk cleanse to remove all impurities on my face, then she did a double cleanse to make sure my skin was clean before we started on the treatment. 

2. ULTRASONIC CLEANSING X SOFTENING SOLUTION: 
The Ultrasonic Cleansing uses an ultrasound device to eliminate dead cells from the skin surface and loosen impurities, oil and black/white heads that are embedded in the pores. The blackheads are then easily extracted without damaging the surrounding skin. Exfoliation of the dead skin cells also allows for more effective penetration of the therapeutic substances that follow. Regular treatment will result in clearer, softer skin and an overall better complexion. 
Nicole applying softening solution to soften my black/white heads before using the Ultrasonic device. 
This is the Ultrasonic device. No pain at all, and quite effective actually. The next day I met up with Val, she told my my clogged pores seems to have cleared up compared to the Borocay days. 


3. EXTRACTION: 
I have a love/hate feeling for extractions. I hate that it is so painful, but I love how my pores are thoroughly cleaned after the session. Though there might be redness after extraction, but your skin will feel so much smoother and softer after about 1 week! 

4. PG VITAMIN A X PG VITAMIN C X PG COMPOUND E: 
The Vitamin A is used to reduce wrinkles, improves skin texture and reverses signs of photo-aging for an overall clearer skin tone. The Vitamin C stimulates the production of collagen in the dermis for firmer smoother and younger looking skin. It is also known to produce an overall lightening effect and a more even skin tone that is immediately noticeable after just a single treatment. 
The PG Compound E replaces essential nutrients and other substances in the skin that has depleted with time to reverse many of the visible signs of skin ageing. Regular treatment with PG Compound E will results in firmer skin with reduced wrinkles and lines, for a glowing complexion that appears more youthful. 
My skin looks slightly more red after the extraction. 

5. THERAPEUTIC MASK
Type of mask depends on different individuals. As for me, I did the Anti-Blemish Mask to prevent any development of pimples, and also soothes the skin from the previous extraction. It also decreases the chance of inflammation and reduces oil clogs. 
After 15 mins of the Anti-Blemish Mask, the red sores from extraction have already subsided!
This is after the entire facial treatment! 


ONE WEEK AFTER TREATMENT
Decided to take pictures one week after the treatment, because by then the acne scars should already settled down and pretty much healed. In my opinion, I do like the Essential Facial cause it helps unclog my pores and flattens it without any pain. Most facials does extraction for the entire face including clogged pores, however the Ultrasonic Cleansing removes the smaller clogged pores, so extractions is reduced to only 30% which means lesser pain!!

ESSENSUALS | PRIVY PROTEIN TREATMENT 02

Sponsored Advertorial
Back to Essensuals Bugis for my regular hair treatment again! Remember my previous blogpost about the Privy Protein Treatment? Sharon, my hairstylist, said that after about approximately 3 to 4 sessions of the Privy Protein treatment, your hair can absorb enough protein to regain it's natural hair texture! Here's some basic information about it. 

PRIVY PROTEIN TREATMENT
Natural hair relies on a balance of proteins, nutrients and oils to support healthy roots. Our hair is approximately 91% protein. Harsh chemical treatments like perming, dying, or large exposure to sun rays, pollution and lack of proper hair care might lead to breaking up hair chains, and losing of protein, resulting to brittle and dull hair. Since the hair is made up of protein, it would only make sense to treat and replenish your weak and brittle hair with the sufficient protein! So here's my second session of the Privy Protein Treatment! 
Before the hair treatment begin. I cannot emphasise how much I am already in love with my current hair texture. It's the softest that I ever had! I still remember how crispy and fried my hair was before I entered Essensuals Bugis. They manage to salvage my hair without even shaving me bald. 
I like my current hair colour, so just went there to do a touch up. 
It only took about 5 minutes for the dye to set in and blend with my current hair colour. 
Washing the dye off with the Step 1 of the Privy Protein Treatment.
Allowing the Enrich Hair Serum and Hold Cream to set in! 

 Tadah!! After the Privy Protein Hair Treatment! 
She wants to cut my hair again! I will defeat her!!! 
FWAHHHH… My flowy hair. Do you like it?! Haha. 

If you have really dried and damaged hair due to overly perming or bleaching, then maybe you would wanna give the Protein Hair Treatment a try! It takes about 3 to 4 sessions to see the results. You can compare my hair condition about 6 months ago, to my current hair condition. Essensuals Bugis is one of the salon that helped me resolve my horrible hair issues, so I do hope they'll solve yours as well!! For more information, make a trip down to
