That V Face

Asian females are pretty obsessed with the need to have a sharper jawline and smaller face, aren’t we?

So what do some do?

Botox? Jaw shaving surgery? Lose weight? Traditional face massage?

If you ask me, I will not resort to the above, except to lose weight.

(I must lose weight after giving birth! MUST MUST MUST.)

I have recently started using the New Face Lifting Cream Sensitive Skin with Royal Jelly + ATP by Bio-essence mainly because first, I have sensitive skin. Second, when I first tried out this product, it gave my face an effective and instant facial contour reduction. To be exact, I noticed a 1.1 cm reduction within a week! (Ya I actually used a V-Ruler to measure! LOL). Third, it acts like a moisturizer. Now, I have always refrained from using moisturizers on my sensitive face. I tried, but my skin reacted. If you have sensitive skin like me, you will realize that our skin gets irritated easily and rejects almost everything that is slathered on it. Hence, it is important to use products specially formulated for our sensitive skin like New Face Lifting Cream Sensitive Skin by Bio-essence. The secret? I know one of it has got to be its hypoallergenic formula!

It’s a no brainer decision – obviously I will continue using it.

I know some of you are still skeptical. Why not watch this video?


Okay watched already? Did you see for yourself how the right side of the lady’s face became firmer and sharper? Even her cheekbone was more prominent, minutes after applying Bio-essence Lifting Cream.

It is really easy to use it and measure the amount of reduction it will give your face.

Step 1:

Measure facial contour with the ruler provided


Step 2:

Apply cream in upward lifting motion for 10 minutes


Step 3:

Measure again to get results of reduction


Here are just some of the reasons why you should this one out:

  • Helps firm sagging skin
  • Helps reduce double chin
  • Helps reduce aging lines
  • Helps reduce visible fine lines & wrinkles
  • Deeply nourishes & moisturizes skin
  • Helps tighten pores & refines skin

It is no wonder Bio-essence is the V Face Expert!


In total, there are types of 3 face lifting cream by Bio-essence, suitable for every skin types or needs

  • Shape V Face Look Younger
  • Shape V FACE Without Harsh Irritation
  • Extra V Extra Lift


Where to purchase them?

  • Watsons
  • Guardian
  • NTUC Fairprice


Now that Hari Raya is approaching, all the more we must put in effort to get that shape V face! Must look extra good, right?

I know I will really rely on Bio-essence New Face Lifting Cream Sensitive Skin with Royal Jelly + ATP to help me look as slim as possible since I cannot do anything else to lose that weight.

Love is in the (h)air : Yun Nam Hair Care

I have been suffering from hair loss ever since I gave birth to my girls.

I was bothered by the amount of hair loss and how my hair dropped easily when I brushed it. However, I did nothing about it.

And I know I am not the only one who is afraid to make it known to others as far as hair loss is concerned. It’s like, we are ashamed to be losing our hair at such a young age.

While hair loss is a major issue for most women, it is also a beauty topic that is often swept under the carpet. Nobody really wants to be upfront about it.

I have heard of Yun Nam Hair Care because they have been around for the longest time, but I used to have this thinking that Yun Nam Hair Care was only for old people with balding hair.

My perception of them totally changed after my first visit!




And no, it is not only for old people with balding hair. 

Will talk more about that later.

Ladies, what really causes hair loss if it is not genetic?

  1. Stress
  2. Hormonal changes
  3. Bad sleeping habits
  4. Medications
  5. Chemical/dye treatments
  6. Off the rack hair products
  7. Recent child birth
  8. Low iron levels
  9. Birth control pills – starting or stopping
  10. Wearing hair in tight braids
  11. Nutrition


So at the age of 34 and seven years after giving birth to my twins, I finally decided to do something about my hair loss. I mean, I colour my hair on a regular basis in order to achieve beautiful hair but what’s beautiful hair without healthy hair or scalp? I am not too sure about you, but more I age, the more conscious I am about my personal well-being. Whatever that I can do to make myself look and feel better, I try to do.

Yun Nam Hair Care is well-known for its efficacy in helping men and women in Singapore recover from hair and scalp problems such as dandruff, itchy scalp, oily hair, hair loss, balding, thinning hair and premature greying or white hair.

I went to Yun Nam Hair Care at Plaza Singapura the other day to get my scalp analysis via a free consultation with one of their consultants, Michelle. After all, I wanted to be sure what was the actual cause of my hair loss. It could possibly be genetic.

Minutes before meeting Michelle, I was actually pretty nervous and anxious. I mean, what would Michelle think after seeing the condition of my hair and scalp? So embarrassing.


But Michelle was so friendly, bubbly, attentive, and welcomed me with open arms when she saw me. Whatever she said was so comforting and at that moment, it made me forget what I was there for in the first place.

Have you ever had a scalp analysis done before? You will be shocked to see and know things that you have never realized before. In my case, I was suffering from hair loss but I did not know what exactly caused the hair loss or hair to stop growing on certain parts of my scalp.

Want to see my scalp? Do not cringe ah.

I repeat,



The white patch stuck on my hair is actually an oil clog!





Wait, there is more!




No wonder I always scratch my head. Or should it be, no wonder there are red patches – I scratch my head all the time! LOL.

But at least I know what has been causing my hair loss problem. The oil clogs on my hair pores are stopping new hair follicles from growing! No wonder I have some bald patches on my head! And new hair follicles must grow from those bald patches!

Apparently I have not been washing my hair thoroughly and that actually caused the oil clogs to form!

So when you go for a scalp analysis, the trained professional consultants at Yun Nam Hair Care will also show you what is going up there on your scalp and provide a personalised treatment as well as product recommendations.

After that first visit, Michelle gave me a summary of the treatment I will be receiving at Yun Nam Hair Care:

  • Deep cleansing treatment

            ~helps to control oily scalp problem

            ~remove oil clogs on hair pores

  • Regrowth hair treatment

            ~helps to penetrate nutritional to hair roots

            ~helps to grow more new born healthy hair

  • Protein hair treatment 

            ~ helps to repair hair cuticle

            ~ prevents further hair breakage

  • Maintenance hair treatment

~ helps to maintain clean and healthy scalp

I have been going to Yun Nam Hair Care on a weekly basis for my Deep Cleansing Treatment!


As I mentioned earlier, it is exactly like going to the hair salon. Sit down, drink milo, eat biscuits, listen to music, and just relax while Michelle attends to my hair.


And right after every treatment session, Michelle will be sure to blowdry my hair and style it according to how I want it. She can even curl it for me! Should I need a hair trim, Michelle can do it for me too!

After just my third visit, I saw baby hair sprouting and growing from the bald areas!

Can you see a lot of standing hair in my picture below? Those are new hair growing!


And I had my scalp analysis done again after the third treatment and I was super pleased with what I saw.


No more oil clogs!


And since there are no more oil clogs, hair growth can now take place!

See those thin strands of hair? Those strands are actually new hair growing.


Now you compare my before and after treatment scalp analysis!






So so glad that I decided to do something about my hair loss problem!



You too should get a scalp analysis via their Free Consultation!

It is akin to getting a health check up and for some, a life-changing experience. Yun Nam Hair Care helps to IMPROVE HAIR HEALTH for long-term benefits.


How to contact them?

Squeaky Clean : Oral B Professional Care 3000 Power Brush

Don’t you always feel good after your dental visit because only the dentist can do a good job at cleaning your teeth in removing tartar and plaque?

But you cannot possibly get the dentist to do that for you on a daily basis, right?

What does this mean? 

We need to take the extra effort to clean our teeth and stop plaque from forming and staying in our mouthes.

The new Oral B Professional Care 3000 power brush lets us have the dentist clean feeling everyday! 


What does it do?

  1. Removes up to 97% of plaque from hard-to-reach places*
  2. Helps to improve gum health and reduces gingivitis
  3. Pressure sensor stops pulsations when you’re brushing too hard
  4. Provides a naturally whiter teeth in just two weeks*   *whitens by removing surface stain


Since Oral B Professional Care 3000 power brush can remove up to 97% of plaque, this also means that it will reduce the need for flossing!

I am currently using Oral B Professional Care 3000 power brush! 


Yes, being the typical Singaporean, I wanted to try this out after seeing more than 560 reviews of the product! It was even rated 4.5 stars on Amazon!

I like how it has three different modes:

  1. Daily Clean
  2. Sensitive (for those with sensitive teeth or receding gumlines)
  3. Whitening


Oral B Professional Care 3000 power brush gently breaks up plaque and sweeps it away. Yes, it is gentle on the teeth and gums because it has a visible pressure sensor. The best thing is, it will light up and stop pulsating if you are pressing too hard! Definitively good for someone as rough and impatient as me! HAHAH.


It also has a timer that indicates dentist-recommended brushing time of 2 minutes. This type of timer is definitely a great idea and addition to modern toothbrushes because one of the biggest failings in most people’s dental hygiene routine is not spending long enough when brushing. These days, people do not even have enough time to brush their teeth properly.

So how do you brush your teeth using Oral B Professional Care 3000 power brush power brush?



Ok ok, watch this video!


I like how my teeth have that squeaky-clean feeling after every brush!



So what do you do with the Oral B Professional Care 3000 power brush after every brush? Wash it as per normal.


Oral B Professional Care 3000 power brush comes with a charging station, but the battery lasts about a week in between each charge.

I say, this will make a great gift for your loved ones! Christmas is approaching for those of your celebrating, so why not include Braun Oral B Professional Care 3000 power brush in your gift list?


What will you get when you first open up the box at home?

  • 1 x Professional Care 3000 rechargeable toothbrush
  • 1 x Charging stand with room for four brush heads
  • 1 x Precision Clean brush head
  • 1 x 3DWhite brush head

The Royal Treatment: Dove Body

They often say that regular milk bath nourishes and softens the skin.

Queen Cleopatra made it a point to add fresh camel milk for her ritual bath. That could possibly explain her smooth and white skin.

But just for the sake of feeding my curiosity, I decided to do a test.




Yes it is basically a test to see how moisturized the skin is.



Clean left forearm by washing with water



Dab dry with tissue paper


Use Digital Moisture Monitor (DMM) on area to measure skin moisture level. 



Mine was 23.5% moisturized only. Alamak, pretty dry! 

Fill spray bottle with milk. Spray 3-5 times onto test area



Massage in a circular motion 10 times around the test area


Rinse the left forearm under flowing water for 20 seconds



Dab try with tissue paper


Use DMM on area to measure skin moisture level again



Not bad! Skin moisture level increased by more than 20% after using milk on the skin.

Now, let’s move on the Dove Test.

I repeated the same steps above, but using my right forearm this time round.

Skin moisture was 30.5% after the first wash with water.



After applying Dove on it and washing it off, skin moisture was…



61%! OH MY GOD!.

Definitely more moisturized than milk. 61% is really not bad! Imagine if I keep using the new and improved Dove Body Wash! 

For the record, I have been since started using Dove Body Wash. Yup, right after the skin moisture test.

I somehow feel my skin is softer, supple and more moisturized as compared to the many other body washes I have used before, hence the choice to use Dove Body Wash.

If you must know, my hands, feet and elbows are ridiculously dry to begin with. I strongly suspect it has something to do with my super sensitive skin.

The new and improved Dove Body Wash contains NutriumMoisture®. How can I not give it a try when it is proven by tests to be more nourishing to the skin than bathing in a whole tub of milk? The body wash is luxuriously thick and creamy and truly is a royal treatment for the skin. It lathers up really well so all I need is just one generous pump for my entire body. If you are shorter than me, then you might need just half a pump. LOL.

Watch this video to find out more.


The Royal TreatmentWhat is the most nourishing ingredient for your skin? We asked four ladies, and gave them a unique spa experience to change the way they think.

Posted by Dove on Thursday, May 21, 2015



Dove is just one of those brands that almost everyone equates with being good and gentle on the skin.


Tested and proven, by yours truly!

Granted, this didn’t happen over night. You need to be consistent and stay true to Dove for two weeks at least in order to see the improvements.

I can honestly say that after two weeks, I saw some great improvements to my skin!


Stand a chance to win Dove’s royal treatment for your skin!


All you have to do is watch the video and answer this simple question:

How many bottles of Dove NutriumMoisture® are shown in the basket when the secret is revealed to our Royal Treatment ladies?

Eid with Adlina Anis

Adlina Anis is certainly no stranger in the local fashion industry.

Her love for fashion is undeniable.

Her designs are unique, timeless and classy yet simple to don.

When I grow up, I want to be just like her.



“I’ve always loved exploring new ways of wearing the hijab and experiment with designs and colours. It wasn’t easy to find what I wanted in the market so I sourced for fabrics and made my own shawls. I started getting queries from family and friends and that’s when I thought it timely to start the brand.”

– Adlina Anis


And this year, I got to say that she impressed me and everyone else even more with her Eid Exclusives.

This is her Embellished Necklace Chiffon Shawl in Seashell.

This one alone comes in more than twenty colours!


I actually went “WAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH” when I saw the Eid Exclusives, and I had another round of “WAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH” when I saw her tutorials.

I realised how extremely easy it actually is to don the scarves by Adlina Anis.

Adlina Anis never fails to upload tutorials in her Youtube, Facebook and Instagram so that her customers know how exactly to achieve that certain look for a particular scarf or shawl.

Look her up in Youtube!

Here’s how you wear the Embellished Necklace Chiffon Shawl.

Besides the Eid Exclusives which I personally think every Muslim woman must own, you can also purchase her bestseller designs.

Satin Crepe Shawls


Satin Crepe Snood


Chiffon Shawl Onesie


Slip-on Satin Double-V Underscarves


Having led the trends for Muslimahs over the last 2 years, you wouldn’t want to miss this opportunity to visit her showroom to feel and see the variety that probably only Adlina Anis can deliver.

Look no further than Singapore. In fact, look no further than Lorong 23 Geylang, because that’s where Adlina Anis showroom is situated.

If I may add, the showroom is air-conditioned and simply awesome, so you can really shop at ease there.

If that’s not enough, Adlina Anis will even teach you how to style the shawls.
