Wana get a V-Shaped face? Go to CSK Aesthetics Clinic

Labels: , , ,

I was recently at CSK Aesthetics Clinic for a session using the Accent Ultra to shape my face to get it more V-shaped, perhaps to get rid of double chin. This is the comparison after just 1 session.

My face is slightly slimmer already right? Imagine after a few more sessions! So, this is the amazing machine - Accent Ultra.

Accent Ultra uses ultrasound and radiofrequency to safely remove excess fat from the face, tighten the skin, and improve facial appearance.

How does it work?

Accent Ultra combines ultrasound with radiofrequency to eliminate fat deposits and tighten the skin. The ultrasound waves are split between hot and cold style waves, with the hot waves preheating the treatment area, followed by the cold waves that damage the fat cells. Both the hot and cold ultrasound waves are targeted to the fat cells, causing no damage to surrounding tissue. There's a soft whizzing sound and it gets warm at times, still bearable.

Radiofrequency is used after the ultrasound to help eliminate and drain the area of all unwanted waste. This one's cooling, just close your eyes and enjoy...

Accent Ultra is the safest procedure for facial contouring and fat removal. There are no injections, drugs, side effects or pain. It's like going for a facial massage and your face is slimmer after the session! This works best for men and ladies of a certain age, where their skin are sagging, the results are almost immediate!

My double chin's almost gone...
I was even treated to a little cooling mask and boy, I'm totally refreshed after the whole session ~

Kpop Boyband SHINee for Etude House

Labels: , , , , , , , , , , ,

Kpop music has expanded largely over the years and SHINee is definitely one of my favourite Korean boyband. And now not only are they back with a new album, they have also collaborated with Etude House to produce a new Limited Edition Collection - SHINI Star Special Edition.

Don't they look adorable!

The collection consist of 2 Clear Pacts, 1 SHINI Star Clear BB Lotion and the main highlight would be the 5 different Lip Balms that are colour suited to each member of the SHINee team.

Clear Pact: Control your face oil and makes smooth skin all day and protects your skin
  • Peach (makes natural skin)
  • Lavender (makes gorgeous skin)
  • For all skin types
  • Whitening effect
  • SPF 20/PA++
SHINISTAR Lip Balm: Sweet and fragrant Lip Balm that makes lips moist all day

  • Shiny O - Onew's Peach Flavour Lip Balm
  • Shiny J - JongHyun's Grape Fruit Flavour Lip Balm
  • Shiny K - Key's Passion Fruit Flavour Lip Balm
  • Shiny M - Minho's Cherry Flavour Lip Balm
  • Shiny T - Taemin's Guava Flavour Lip Balm
After you finish the Lip Balm, the surprise is you will find the corresponding member of SHINee's autograph!!!

I got myself the BB Lotion and Lip Balm of my favourite SHINee member,  JongHyun's Grape Fruit Flavour Lip Balm (Shiny J).

With Flash
Without Flash.
The BB Lotion may seem a little fair when applied, but as you go by the day it oxidises and it blends with my skin. One other way is to set the cream with light brush of face powder and I'm good to go for a natural look. 5 tiny drops on my face is good enough to cover my re spots of dark circles. Highly recommended if you want flawless looking skin like those Korean celebrities...

The Lip Balm I got is Grapefruit flavoured. There's a slight orange tinge when applied and it's very long lasting, keeping my lips moist all day. Doesn't come off easily even when you eat. *So you can save quite abit of moolah*

Btw, there's some "incentives" when you spend more in Etude House.

Badges come when you purchase $20 of products, the puzzle is when you spent $30 and the Tin Box with Memo Standee inside comes only when you pruchase above $50. There's also a schedule book, but it comes only when you purchase $80 and above...

The puzzle works as a mystery letter too!
If I'm not wrong, files come with every purchase.
Yo! Loving this SHINee Autographed poster? It comes with $20 purchase!

I'm always getting my Etude House fix from Yu Xi from the Bugis branch of Etude House. Do go find her, I prefer her service and patience to introduce the products to me. *Huney recommendation*

Stocks are running low, so if you wana bring your very own SHINee home, you got to go check out Etude House fast!

[What's new] SK-II Atrium Event - Meet & Greet with Sheila Sim

Labels: , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Hi Huneybees,

For this whole week, SK-II will host an Atrium Event on achieving crystal cloear skin. Not only will there be exclusive promotions, there will also be beauty workshops and special appearances by our very own Singaporean International Supermodel and Style Icon , Sheila Sim.

Sheila Sim is SK-II's Newest Global Brand Ambassador (Woohoo! First Singaporean for Sk-II!). Her versatility and fresh-faced beauty is what made SK-II choose her. Standing at 1.74m, the 27 year-old model has worked with many international fashion houses including Giorgio Armani, Salvatore Ferragamo, Christian Dior, Piaget, Valentino, Louis Vuitton and Chanel. And definitely everyone will remember her in her Poh Heng Jewellery ads...

"The collaboration with supermodel Sheila Sim makes perfect sense because we feel that she embodies a modern interpretation of beauty that's very au courant yet authentic. We are confident that she will bring the message of crystal clarity to a new generation of women through her inspiring stories of transformation - both in skin and life." --- Samuel Kim, Vice President, ASEAN & Asia Development Markets, Procter & Gameble Asia

I was down earlier on for the Sheila Sim meet-and-greet session and learn some beauty tips from her.

From girl-next-door to international supermodel and now, global icon of crystal clarity, Sheila has her trustworthy companion, Facial Treatment Essence, to thank for. Containing over 90% pitera - a natural bio ingredient that brings together over 50 types of skin nutrients working in combination to activate skin renewal. It has been proven to shift skin's five dimensions - texture, radiance, firmness, spot control and wrinkle resilience - to crystal clarity, according to a revolutionary discovery by SK-II scientists.

"One of the first compliments I received after using SK-II was that my skin's texture became more refined, firmer and smoother and there was an overall improvement in the condition of my skin, something I had never experienced before with any other skincare brands. My friends complimented me on my skin's glowing radiance and when even my makeup artist and close friend, Clarence Lee, praised me for my healthy skin, I knew that SK-II had really transformed my skin - inside out." --- Sheila Sim
Sheila's so pretty, her skin glowed from within. Gorgeous!

Sheila's Tips to being Supermodel:
  • Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize - SK-II Facial Treatment Essence and Cellumination Essence EX are her favs.
  • Remove your makeup properly after a long day at work - SK-II Facial Gentle Cleanser
  • Indulge your skin if you're a frequent jet-setter - Always carry facial mask, SK-II Skin Signature 3D Refining Mask is her favourite. Not only does it moisturize, it always gives her face an instant lift.

Sheila's Style:
  • Looking good isn't about money, it's about style and style never goes out of fashion
  • Experiment with different looks
  • Get to know you body shape and learn what cuts and colours suit your body shape
How to achieve Sheila's body?:

  •  Drink lots of water, healthy diet, lifestyle and sufficient rest.
  • Create a balance between play and work
Supermodel SOS: One day left to Red-Carpet Event, what's Sheila's emergency skincare tips to tackle common problem areas?

  1. Facing  an out-of-control zit or stubborn spot that simply refuses to go down? Soak a cotton pad with Facial Treatment Essence and place it on your problem area for 10 minutes. It will make spots less visible!
  2. Struggling with redness? Press a cool compress gently against your face for a few minutes to constrict the blood vessels and stop the inflammation.
  3. For heavy eye-bags resulting from insufficient sleep? Apply SK-II's Skin Signature Eye Cream to keep skin hydrated and moisturized. If you have slightly more time, use SK-II's Signs Eye Mask that has been designed to revive the eye area and smoothen fine lines.
  4. Shine that doesn't go away? Opt for a pressed power compact that's gentle to your skin and doesn't clog your pores.
  5. Facing dry tired-looking skin? Avoid wearing makeup to ensure the pores of your skin do not stay clogged. Indulge skin with SK-II Facial Treatment Mask for a moisturizing treat that imbues skin in a rich hydrating spa.

Tempted to get flawless looking skin like Sheila Sim? Come on down to the Atrium Event (Centrepoint) to get your SK-II deals! It's till 5th April 2012. :)
