Hey guys! It's been such a long time since I've last updated here. I nearly forgot what it feels like to be editing pictures for a blog post. Reviving this space today with a lil review (and advertisement) on one of my newfound favourites.

I have always been a user of micellar water for as long as I can remember - it's lightweight, effective, and most importantly, quick and easy to use without breaking my skin out. One of the brands I have used for a super long period is Bifesta. It's not only super affordable ($18.90 a bottle) but works very well. Not to mention, always A+ for Japanese products and their packaging!

Mooooving on to the star of today's post, Bifesta Sensitive Micellar Cleansing Lotion (for city skin)
So, what exactly is "city skin"?
As people who live in the city, our skin is exposed to a myriad of external stress that might cause or aggravate certain skin conditions such as dryness and itching. A bad diet and lack of sleep can also make you more susceptible to break outs and skin sensitivity!

This new Sensitive Micellar Cleansing lotion helps to build your defense against the external aggressors of city life for healthy and hydrated skin. In particular, the Bifesta Micellar Cleansing Lotions are also incredibly easy to use – just pump it onto a cotton pad and wipe your makeup off.
It's super easy to use and the Bifesta Micellar water keeps my skin super moisturised so it's perfect if you hate the tight feeling after using certain cleansers. You can choose to not rinse off after removing your makeup with the micellar water, but i do have the habit of double cleansing so I will usually follow up with my cleanser before proceeding with my skincare routine.

I don’t usually wear heavy makeup on a daily basis so this micellar water is perfect for me! It’s very effective and removed everything super easily so I don’t have to worry about tugging too hard on my skin (which might lead to wrinkles!).

If that's not enough for you - here's how it performs against heavier makeup!

This is definitely definitely one of my favourites (and top recommendations) for an affordable and effective makeup remover. It is now available at all major drugstores, supermarkets, and leading departmental stores. I highly recommend for you girls to try this out, and let me know if you like it as much as I do too!

Juchheim Jewellery Baum & Manekineko Baum

Saturday, July 14, 2018
Hi everyone! It's been a while since I last touched this space. I guess everyone's kind of moved on to other platforms and I'm a little out of touch on how to start a blog post hahaha. So please, bear with me if my sentences seem a little short, like Instagram captions.

Juchheim invited a few of us bloggers down to their Takashimaya outlet (at the Food Hall, where the Japanese food are) last weekend to preview their newly launched Jewellery Baum and Manekineko Baum - and we got to leave with some sweet treats to share with our friends and families!

I'm not gonna lie, I am not a huge fan of sweets and cakes. Never really had a sweet tooth from when I was younger - so I brought the boyfriend along to try out the cakes as well so that I can give a more comprehensive review on it!

The first thing that caught my eye when I reached the counter was how pretty these cakes are. The new Jewellery Baum really lives up to it's name. It was almost like shopping at a jewellery store, where everything is displayed behind the glass display - and it was sparkling like a piece of jewellery would.

The Jewellery Baum comes in 5 different flavours - Berries, Orange, Mango, Matcha, and Coffee. My personal favourite is Mango and Berries since I really like fruity flavours. They were a little sweet for me, but everyone else thought that they were alright, so it was probably just my lack of a sweet tooth. However, I think these cakes would go very well with tea, so it's a good item to get for gatherings with your girlfriends!

Besides how sweet I felt it was, I actually really enjoyed the Jewellery Baum. The cake surrounding the jelly is nice and soft, but the jelly provides an interesting contrast in textures and flavours. The boyfriend also approves! Look at how happy he is eating the sweets.

Along with the Jewellery Baum, Juchheim has also launched their Manekineko Baum. For those of you who are familiar with Manekineko, you'd know that it is a prosperity cat.

The Manekineko Baum is specially made to have 8 layers as it is a symbol of prosperity in Chinese! It is made of the same batter as their original (and best selling) Baumkuchen, and tastes just as good. The cake is slightly dense but very fragrant. If you enjoy kueh lapis, you'd find that this is like a lighter (and less oily) version of it!

Enough of me rambling about how good the cakes are, I think the best way for you guys to find out is to head down to their counter to find out. They provide free samples (and rather generous portions) so you can try out which is to your liking before purchasing!

Juchheim is located at 391 Orchard Road Singapore 238873, Takashimaya Food Hall.
Jewellery Baum retails for $3 a piece; Manekineko Baum retails for $23.80.

5 Things To Know Before Getting Your Nose Fillers Done

Happy New Year everyone! Before Chinese New Year came about, I went to get my nose fillers touched up. I've previously gotten my nose bridge fillers done and this time round, I thought I'd share with you guys some things you should know before deciding if you want to get yours done too.

This time round, I got my fillers done at Calvin Chan Aesthetics and Laser at Wheelock.

1. Know what type of filler you are using.
Based on what I know, the most common type of fillers used are HA (Hyaluronic acid) ones because of its compatibility with the human body, with it already being found in our bodies. I have tried both Juvéderm and Restylane and both worked well for me. Depending on your doctor, they might recommend different fillers for different parts of the face because of how the fillers work and how long they last. I had one syringe injected this time round, and it will last anywhere from 6~12 months depending on my body's metabolic rate.

2. Be open to suggestions.
Obviously the doctor will know what's best for you, which is why it is important to go to a experienced and reputable clinic/doctor for procedures like fillers. Doctor Chan recommended that I filled the tip area instead of my usual nose bridge area, and I'm really glad that he did. I always thought that I will never be able to make my nose look smaller with fillers, but filling up the tip did help it. It also helped with making my face look more defined and I loved it. Plus, the fillers looked really natural and I've gotten many compliments regarding it.

3. It should not hurt.*
This is the third time I'm getting fillers done and I've never once experienced any pain. The doctors I've went to were all very meticulous and I would have never done it again if there was any pain. You can however, definitely feel a mild pressure as the fillers are being injected - but that goes away after you're done - which should be in 10~15 minutes.

*I do have to say though, as I've not done any derma fillers on any other parts of my face, I'm not sure if other parts will hurt (eg. lips or tear trough). Make sure to ask your doctor all the questions you need to. If necessary, do your research and write it down before you do your consultation.

4. It might bruise.
As there is a needle injection, some people might experience bruising - a problem which I did not have. The red marks from the injection, which were not too noticeable until close up, faded away after 2 days and I was already able to use makeup to cover it after the first day. Again, this might differ for different areas.

5. It will settle after a couple of days
You should expect your fillers to decrease in volume about 20% after a couple of days because of how it reacts with your body. What some doctors do is to inject more than what you think you want, and let it settle; others might inject it to what you want, and if you want to fill up the area more after you can head back to touch up (since fillers are sold in syringes and you have to use them up within 3 months). Therefore, keep in mind that the area may not look exactly like how it did when you leave the clinic.
