eurucascalp&amp;volumn

Eruca Scalp & Volume Range uses botanical oil extracted from specially selected seed oils help to restore balance to your scalp and alleviate common scalp problems like itchiness and dandruff.

In addition to use in organic cosmetics, Shea butter enjoyed a period of popularity as an eco-detergent and as a face washing agent for dry and sensitive skin in Europe and America.

The Shea butter moisturizes and helps protect your scalp and hair because of the pro-vitamin B5 it contains after having washed your hair in the dense lather it produces.

Recently, I have been having itchy scalp due to the hot weather!!! -_-” This series come as a good timing! I also love the formulas of sweet exquisite flower fragrances! This range smells the sweetest among the three ranges!

erucaextravolumeup

Eruca 3D Volume Up contains a unique volumizing ingredient wraps the whole hair in a thin veil to create volume from the roots without the use of harmful hair products!

After your 40s, hair tends to become thinner and decrease in amount, causing a loss of body, control and volume. The solution to these issues is the all-in-one type “Eruca All-In-One Extra Volume Up Shampoo”. Styling ingredients, which are included in the shampoo, wrap the hair from the roots and create a luscious head of hair with strong individual strands when dried. Even floppy hair can achieve a voluminous finish.

Since I already have thick and fluffy hair, this range is not the most suitable for me. Hehe.  However, I did try out the range and it surely gives my hair more puff and volume!

erucamoist&amp;repair

My favourite range is the Eruca Moist & Repair! This range tames my unruly hair into beautiful lock of hair with the hair defining formula that aims to restore water and oil balances in my hair and scalp for frizz-free hair!!!!!!!!!

CYBER COLORS BLACK LABEL FOUNDATION SERIES for Flawless and Ageless Skin

P1190161

I received the CYBER COLORS BLACK LABEL SERIES, and the series is currently available at SaSa Singapore! All are made in Japan~~~ Love love Japan!! 😀 Thank you Stefanie and Avery~~ <3

The BLACK LABEL SERIES is a rich and skin-loving textured foundation that provides high coverage with lustrous, dewy finish that stays fresh all day.

Formulated with a blend of precious herbal essences – Reishi, Ginseng, Angelica and Cordceps, to unveil the natural beauty of Asian women.

It also diminishes the appearance of pores, dark eye circles, and fines lines, creating a flawless, and radiance skin. It also said to deliver a continuous surge of essential hydration, regulates sebum for all-day comfort and coverage and helps skin appear firmer, more contoured and ageless!

Much more than a makeup, the Series also tackles uneven skin tone, dehydration, oily skin and other skin problems. Its delicate and lightweight texture creates the most luxurious and perfect complexion, a skin glowing with charm and youth.

P1190163

These are the 4 items that I received from SaSa Singapore:

  1. BLACK LABEL ESSENCE UV CREAM FOUNDATION SPF18 PA++
  2. BLACK LABEL ESSENCE UV LIQUID FOUNDATION SPF18 PA++
  3. BLACK LABEL ESSENCE SILKY LOOSE POWDER
  4. BLACK LABEL ESSENCE UV POWDER FOUNDATION SPF 23 PA++

P1190166

You can choose to use either the ESSENCE UV CREAM FOUNDATION SPF18 PA++ or the BLACK LABEL ESSENCE UV LIQUID FOUNDATION SPF18 PA++! Check out the different benefits below~

P1190164

BLACK LABEL ESSENCE UV CREAM FOUNDATION SPF18 PA++
Its rich and nourishing, though never sticky, texture effectively smooths out fine lines, diminishes pores, pigmentation and all other imperfections. Delivers a continuous surge of essential hydration, regulates sebum for all-day comfort and coverage and helps skin appear firmer, more contoured and ageless.

Usage: After applying Black Label Essence UV Moisture Base, apply evenly on face and neck by sponge or foundation brush.

CYBcream

The texture of the cream is slightly thicker as compared to the Liquid foundation (obviously). I like this as it has better coverage and does a great job of controlling sebum. 🙂 However, I actually prefer the liquid foundation as it is lighter on the skin.

P1190165

BLACK LABEL ESSENCE UV LIQUID FOUNDATION SPF18 PA++
Formulated with Pore Gradation Powder, this moisturizing and lightweight liquid foundation blends into the skin with perfect evenness for the look and feel of bare skin. Herbal essence infuses skin with nutrients and moisture, leaving it smooth, soft and conditioned. Prevents melanin production and pigmentation.

Usage: After applying Black Label Essence UV Moisture Base, apply evenly on face and neck by sponge or foundation brush.

I really like this LIQUID FOUNDATION as it is super lightweight and blends into my skin easily and creates even over all tone for my skin! I don’t even feel nor look like I am wearing any foundation but my skin looks so good! I don’t even need to use concealer! (Actually I don’t know how to use concealer. lol) Also, my skin feels moisturized, soft and smooth! Actually I thought I can step out of the house with my skin like this in the photo below. 😀 😀 😀

DSCN0538

Looks not bad right, I feel that I can step out of the house like this! Especially now that my eyebrow shape is changed by my facial therapist and the eyelash and eyebrow serum I bought from SaSa! 😛  For your information, it is the MARVALA double eyelash. I swear by it!!!!

Next up, I used the ESSENCE SILKY LOOSE POWDER to prolong my make-up and to create a matte look!

P1190167

BLACK LABEL ESSENCE SILKY LOOSE POWDER
Silky smooth, extremely fine and comfortable. Its soft-focus and skin-perfecting formula diffuses light and gives skin a flawless finish. Complexion glows with natural radiance, appears fresh and luminous all day long.

Usage: After applying Black Label Essence UV Liquid Foundation or Cream Foundation, use a makeup puff or brush to apply the powder lightly onto face for long-lasting makeup.

DSCN0541

Yay!! The loose powder is enough to last me through the day with matte and moisturized looking skin, but if you need to do a touch up anytime in the day, you can also get the BLACK LABEL ESSENCE UV POWDER FOUNDATION SPF 23 PA++!

P1190168

BLACK LABEL ESSENCE UV POWDER FOUNDATION SPF 23 PA++
A skin-loving textured compact combines Complex Powder and Moisturizing Powder that builds up a moisturizing film on your skin and controls excess sebum. Micro Powder reflects light and brings radiance to dull, uneven-toned and lifeless skin. Dark eye circles, wrinkles and pores are diminished.

Usage:For touch-up, gently dab a tissue or sponge onto face to remove excess sebum, then apply the foundation by sponge onto skin, pressing lightly. P1190170

Muahaha, to tell you the truth, I brought this out with me whenever I used any of the BLACK LABEL FOUNDATION series, but I didn’t ever use it once. The cream/liquid foundation is long-lasting enough for a good work day so… there isn’t much need to use it. :PPPPP So if you are thinking of trying the BLACK LABEL, maybe you should get the cream/liquid foundation + loose powder first and see if you will need the powder foundation for touch-up! Sorry ah SaSa.. I have to be truthful to my readers. HEHE!!!!

GO TO ANY SASA SINGAPORE NOW TO TRY THE BLACK LABEL!! LET’S all have soft and moisturized beautiful skin~~ <3

So, I am all ready to step out of the house with my full make-up!!!!! I think being a woman is really a very very fun thing! I can change my makeup and then I look different everyday! 😀

ReFa CARAT Workshop @ Ikeda Spa – I want smaller face!!!

There is really hope for me to look like now even until I am 40 years old!! 良かった! (yokatta – Good!)
I flip a lot alot of Japanese magazines (though I read only 1% of them I admit)and Japanese ladies are all about 小顔(small face)! Thanks to Cozycot, we can now all learn about the secret to having small faces!
One of the SECRETS is ReFa Carat!
  • Over 1 million units sold in Japan over one year!!!
  • #1 sales in professional market
  • #1 Christmas gift for the past 2 years (AHEM!! Can anyone buy this for me for my Birthday? lol)

I will share with you more about ReFa Carat below!!!

We were introduced to the amazing benefits of ReFa Carat by Jasmine(Product Trainer for ReFa), and she also did a hands-on to one side of my face to show the instant lifting of ReFa CARAT!!!!!!!!! My face INSTANTLY LIFTED UP !!

After that, we had a mini tour in Ikeda Spa, and enjoyed a 30 minute Express treatment by Ikeda Spa to further enhance ReFa Carat and ReFa Up Serum with the magical hands of the beautician! It was so comfortable that I fell asleep halfway…. LOL! Most probably will go back next time to enjoy the very Japanese SPA environment and services! I MISS JAPAN! 🙂

Don’t forget to LIKE Ikeda Spa facebook, and visit their website for more information about the services they offered!
After the pampering session, we were given the ReFa Carat for two weeks to experience the difference it can bring to us without the use of dieting/exercising/toning products!
Here we go, some information about ReFa Carat~~~
How it started…
Used in the medical field in 1980s to treat patients suffering from partial paralysis (e.g. stroke) of their face.
How it works …
Send soft gentle waves (Micro current) which stimulate the muscles back to their original state.

Benefits of Micro current
  • Define facial/ body contour
  • Increase lymphatic drainage
  • Improve blood circulation
  • Refine appearance of enlarged pores
  • Reduction in the appearance of fine lines/wrinkles
  • Improve skin texture
  • Healthy glowing skin
  • Better absorption of skincare products
Other highlights:
  • ReFa Carat is operated with solar energy which is environmental-friendly, and there is no need for any replacement part!
  • It is water-proof  and you can clean it easily with running water, wipe it dry or you can simply use in when you are in the bath tub!
Do check out the video about ReFa Carat (in Japanese though) about how to use it correctly~ ^^ Fret not, there is also a manual on how to use along with the purchase of your ReFa Carat.
After the 9 days of diligently using ReFa Carat day and night, I NEED TO HAVE IT IN MY DAILY ROUTINE BADLY. Let me show you why!!!!
Left: 19 Feb 2013, Right: 27 Feb 2013Left: 19 Feb 2013, Right: 27 Feb 2013
Left Picture taken on: 18 Feb 2013, Right picture: 27 Feb 2013 (You can see the before and after also by judging how long my bang grew in 9 days~ fast! lol)
LOOK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I did not do any special exercise or any diet!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SUGOI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
LOL, I want to apologize for the two black faces~~ LOL LOL!!!! This is to make sure the comparison is as accurate as possible!
The left picture was taken right after the treatment at Ikeda therefore I have no makeup on. The right picture was taken about 2hours ago when I reached home. I was due to share about ReFa Carat this Friday but why not share with you all earlier since the effect is evident in just 9 days right? ^^ Sharing is caring~~~
I REALLY NEED REFA CARAT!!!!!! ~~~~~~~ SAVE MONEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You thought ReFa Carat can only give you smaller face????? NO WAY!!!!!!!! If it can make my face smaller, it can make my body smaller too!!!!!!!!! *NODS*
OMG!!!!!!!!!! All these I also need to tone~~~ FAT DIE ME~~ Why I so greedy~~ Why I so lazy~~~
And and and… you thought toning your body is what ReFa Carat can do other than giving you smaller face?
Refa Carat also cares for your neck, shoulders, let you  have beautiful hands, and relieve your tired feet! *TOUCHED* So so so many benefits!!!!!!!!!!
I also receive the  ReFa Up Serum (worth $110) to further enhance the sugoi(great in Japanese) ReFa Carat. However, I did not use the ReFa Up Serum these 9 days as I think it will be fairer to show you the benefits of ReFa Carat just by its own! (Actually also for you readers who are considering to buy ReFa Carat, and also considering the price of ReFa Up Serum ^^)
I will continue rolling and rolling the ReFa Carat until I return it next Monday~~ *whines*
WHY ReFa Up Serum?
Use ReFa Carat and ReFa Cosmetics together to increase micro current conductivity by 4.5 times! HOLY MAMA~~~~ !!!!!!!!! I am going to start using ReFa Up Serum with ReFa Carat from either tomorrow onwards or when I get my own ReFa Carat!!!
Ok… now the hard truth about why I kept saying who want to get for me on my birthday and why I want to save money!
How much is the ReFa Carat?
S$540~~~~~~~ !!!!!!!! All great things are not cheap! *tears* Well… let me calculate again how much will the cheapest way of calculation cost!!!! KIYORA~~ You can do it!!!!
I am now 26 years old, and let’s say I use this product to when I am 66 years old,  $540/40=$13.50 per year. Everyday is just $0.03 to for all the suigoi benefits! A great deal or what!!!!!!!
Where to buy?  Ikeda Spa! Or you can visit ReFa Singapore for other places to buy or road shows!
Refa Carat is now on the TOP on my beauty gadget list!
WANT WANT WANT!
