Smile Makers: A night of Champagne, Macaroons and Girl Talk [Sponsored Post]

 A few days back, I was invited to a very interesting event held at Marina Mandarin Presidential Suite.

 Smile Makers did a successful launch of their lubricant in a non-intimidating way with a bedside talk to learn more about the ingredients used, how to choose a good lubricant, and how to pair it up with their personal massagers. *wink*

During the session, we learnt that the mission of Smile Makers personal lubricants is very simple – to give women a product that they will really love, made with the best ingredients. In fact, they view their lubricants as a form of skincare for the most intimate area (which is why... to be honest... I first that it was a new skincare branch launch)!

Water-based, pH-optimal, and made strictly with the highest purity of ingredients available, the full range is completely paraben-free and fragrance-free, and also compatible with condoms and any silicone massagers. 

What really made me feel like these lubricants really unique is that they have a natural plant extract, which acts as a natural anti-irritant and regenerates the skin; and a new ingredient imported from France which helps create smooth slipperiness and a silky feeling after use commonly mentioned as causes of dissatisfaction. 

And to match the formulation in quality, the luxurious packaging is designed by Smile Makers award-winning designer, the creative mind behind SK-­‐II, Gucci,and D&G’s elegant fragrance bottles, which resulted in this elegant packaging that can be placed on our vanity table without looking like what it really is. Smart.

Smile Makers personal lubricants are available in three different versions,
 so that everyone can find their personal favorite:

Little Light Liquid
As light as a feather, this lubricant is formulated  for a natural sensation.

Stay Silky Serum
Silky and soft, this soothing lubricant instantly nourishes  for a smoother, velvety feel.

Generous Gel
Rich and luxuriously textured, this ultra-sensorial lubricant  provides the right amount of cushioning

Personal Thought

To be honest, I went to this event assuming it was about skincare but after I found out the truth, I headed there with the thought of if it can be used for menstrual cups.

But on the whole, this is also the first time I've come across lubricants with varying consistency.
That being said, on the whole, all 3 have similar "finish", it leaves a silky wetness and I was sold with  the fancy packaging with an ingredients list that consist of only 5 ingredients (A short list is always good) and the simple fact that it is paraben-free.

I will be posting a video on this soon with menstrual cups and I will be having an exciting giveaway soon! So stay tune~!

Friday, October 2, 2015 Inspiration for Bridesmaids Dresses

Are you a bride on the search for dresses for your bridesmaids?
Or the bridesmaid in charged of searching for dresses for your fellow "girl group"?

Well, this post has been written to offer you a little help!

Now, I know that the key factors are that the bridesmaids' dresses:
1) Cannot steal away the attention of the Bride's gown
2) Has to match the theme
3) The wearer has to be able to do a multitude of task in this outfit.

So with that in mind, here are my inspirations based on 3 different wedding themes: 

1. Classic Lace
This is as the name suggest, the Classic. The bride will be in a white flowy lacy gown and the wedding will be held in a ballroom.

Traditionally, bridesmaids will more or less be wearing a gown too but let's face it... A gown makes it hard to move around to assist and support the bride, so I suggest to go with the modern times and choose a dress instead! With its feminine design and neutral tones, this outfit will work well for bridesmaid with different skin tone! Pair it off with a chic pair of heels in the matching colour and your ladies are ready!

Eleanor Dress - MDS Collections
Ankle Strap Heeled Sandals - Zalora Basics
Platform Pumps With Ankle Straps - Zalora

The best part of this outfit?
 It can be worn for other occasions too after the wedding!

2. Ready For The Beach
It is pretty common these days for weddings to be held by the beach, so imagine sea breeze, sand and sunset! And what better way to represent the whole mood with a tropical print and wrap skirt designed dress!

And since you  will be long the beach, I would advice a comfortable footwear like a pair sandals in a matching shade or wedges rather than heels because you dont want to be sinking into the sand and risk hurting your ankle.

High Wedges - Karen & Chloe
Solar + Salina T Bar Sandals - Melissa

This dress will make it a good reason for you to tone up your shoulders and back.
Let me know if you want me to share with you my not-so-secret workout routine to tone up these areas!

3. Glam & Party
Gatsby themed wedding with feathers, glitz and glamour?
Black and gold will be perfect!

So shake up the wedding with this classic square neckline dress with a peekaboo mesh shoulder and fluted hem, and be ready to dance away with the Bride & Groom!

Match it with a pair of heels with a easy zip-up fasting like these that I have selected so you can be on the go quickly when your bride needs you!

d'skin: Stem Cell Facial Treatment [Sponsored Review]

Recently, I was introduced to a range of skincare that is researched and formulated in Japan, d'skin.

With the demands of today’s hectic lifestyle, this selection  of  premium-quality  products  offers  modern  busy  women effective remedies to common skin issues. 

Besides  skincare  products,  d’skin also  focused  on  using  medical-grade  equipment  to  achieve desirable results. It offers a complete range of non-surgical cosmetic treatments for ageing skin and delivers the top three most  popular services in  health, wellness and  beauty sector: skin tightening, skin rejuvenation and pigmentation.

And I was invited to try and review their Stem Cell Facial Treatment, that claims to  help  with  skin  conditions  such  as  premature ageing, photo damage, hyperpigmentation, acne, sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles. 

The whole treatment is anchored on four factors to reap cellular benefits : 
Stimulate drainage
Improve microcirculation
Strengthen small capillaries
Combat skin slackening  

The treatment procedure follows a powerful seven-step methodology

1.Skin health diagnostics and profiling
A measuring device and equipment is used to determine the most apt treatment for customers. This device will indicate the level of hydration, sebum, elasticity, pH level, melanin phototype and temperature. However, during my diagnostics, they only recorded and explained to me my skin's level of hydration, sebum production, and elasticity.

I was then shown into the room to get changed into the gown before the commencement of the facial. This is the step where my makeup was removed and the esthetician did a double cleanse with a gel based cleanser, followed by exfoliation with a soft chemical peel together with steaming (for 5mins).

3.Extraction by specialist, Eyebrow grooming & Final consultation
Another lady will step in to do the extraction, and she was quite gentle. Then this specialist did a general consultation of my skin and suggested a suitable treatment for me to do before the esthetician came back to groom my eyebrows and carry on with the treatment.

4. Ultrasound and High-voltage Impulse Therapy
Before the start of the therapy, the esthetician used a antiseptic wand to prep the skin. Followed by the application of their stem cell serum onto my face along with ultrasound and high-voltage impulse therapy to penetrate the skin and introduce a high concentration of serum into dermis simultaneously.

5.Signature Face and Eye Massage
This next step is my favourite. It promises instant, visible results and helps one to de-stress via d’skin’s signature Touch Therapy, which comprises:

a.Targeting pressure points to release energy
b.Stimulating drainage to eliminate toxin
c.Aroma massaging to promote well-being and healing

6. Mask (d’skin’s specialists will choose the mask based on skin condition)
The mask used on me was a cold cooling one.

7.Relaxing shoulder massage
The mask time was accompanied with this massage that helps to improve lymphatic function, promote flow of blood and ease stressed muscles


Duration: Around 2 hours for the facial treatment and 15 mins for skin analysis.

Overall Ambiance: The exterior of d'skin has a very clinic feel which is apt because it is here that the skin analysis is conducted, and the interior has a very calming feminine touch. Toilet is located outside and is quite a distance away.

Cost:  $368

For this treatment, I was looking out for signs of a hydrated plumped skin and looking at the images, you can see that not only was my skin more radiant (glowy), there is less sagginess at my undereye area and my cheeks are more plumped. That being said, I also have to state that they left a lot of serum on after the facial that made my skin feel and look moisturized.


The effects in person are hard to tell, but the overall experience of the facial at d'skin was really relaxing and enjoyable. My favorite segment is their Signature Face and Eye Massage. That was gold for me!
