I'm sure you guys already know I'm a firm believer in using beauty tools to help achieve better results in skincare. Today, I'm here to share my thoughts and review on a couple of new products I've been trying out (and really loving). If you haven't seen a brief introduction to my thoughts on it, here's my YouTube video on it.

First up, let me talk about the Dual Cleanser.
Unlike other cleansing devices I've used before, this is the sleekest-looking one by far. I can't wait to display it on my vanity when I get my own house in the future. It is also able to operate on 2 different cleaning modes (between a rotation motion and a micro-vibration) based on the type of head attached for the best results. I like that this device "speaks" to you (as shown in my YouTube video) and lets you know when to move to a different area of your face (and how long you should be cleansing each area) so that you can use this absent-mindedly regardless of how tired you am.

The Dual Cleanser is also great for travel because of how regular the shape is. Plus, a single charge can last up to 3 months! I'm definitely bringing it along for my upcoming trips.

The 70 seconds cleaning cycle goes like this: Left Cheek, Right Cheek, Nose, Chin, Forehead. You can also pick from 2 different levels of cleansing strength to customise every cleansing session.

Personally, I use the silicon head for mornings and the brush head for nights.
The brush head allows for a deeper cleanse which is perfect after a long day out and from wearing makeup and the likes. Both cleanser heads are very gentle on the skin so it's great even for those of you who may have sensitive skin. They work very well to dislodge any dirt and sebum trapped within the pores!

After using the dual cleanser, I will follow up with my skincare as per normal. It isn't too harsh on the skin so I can use my acid products without my skin getting over-exfoliated or too sensitive. A new addition I've also added into my routine is the Pra.L Derma LED Mask.
With 160 IR and LED lights, the Pro.L Derma LED Mask not only helps with anti-aging, but also pigmentation and pore size issues. This technology is also used in many spas and aesthetic clinics so I know it is something that is effective. I wasn't sure whether it is placebo, but I personally could feel that my skin looks brighter immediately after using it, but of course the best results will come with longer continued usage.

One of the little detail I really liked about the Derma LED Mask is that besides also "speaking" to you (in the same way the Dual Cleanser does but in 3 minutes intervals), the mask is also mostly "wireless". It only attaches to the remote that also doubles as the power source to the mask and it makes it so easy to move around with the mask on. The interior is also padded around your eye and nose area so it was extremely comfortable to wear, just like a pair of sunglasses, so you can go about hands free!

The one-way transparent-mirror eye area also allows you to retain your vision field while being protected from the lights. You can look out, but no one can see your eyes! For me, this made it perfect for using my phone while I have the Derma LED Mask on.

If you're someone who prefers to relax instead, the mask allows me to lay down comfortably without any obstruction.

LG's Pra.L System is now available at Tangs. There are some ongoing promotions for the month of October for the entire Pra.L range, so do check it out!

Bifesta Sensitive Micellar

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.
