Bio-oil now comes in 125ml!


I'm pretty sure you've heard about this miraculous product before, from the raves of your pregnant aunt, the praises from your friend battling with ugly scars and maybe also, commercials (lol). Bio-oil was first launched with the smallie 60ml bottle in Singapore, and now they launched a doubly-big one, in 125ml!

It contains PurCellin Oil which forms the easily-absorbed yet extremely moisturizing oil, and is fortified with Vitamins A & E and floral extracts. It is suitable for use on both face and body, and it is hypoallergenic so rest assured if you have sensitive skin :)

Bio-Oil contains extracts of Calendula, Lavender, Chamomile and Rosemary!

From the launch, I learnt that besides fading scars, there are other ways to incorporate Bio-Oil into your daily regime too! Here are some methods I thought would optimize the usage of Bio-Oil:

1. As a fake-tan lotion
Fake a tan, but be really moisturized! Simply mix some brown pigments (from a bronzer, blusher or eyeshadow) into a few drops of Bio-Oil and voila! Since Bio-Oil is a great all-over moisturizer, this fake tan lotion will moisturize your skin while giving it a shiny bronzey glow :) You can use the same method to make a liquid blusher by using pink pigments too! Its gonna look very natural and healthy.

My camera failed in capturing the glow, but the tan can be customised to your preference by adjusting the ratio of pigment : Bio-Oil. It does absorb fully with no oily residue, if you're wondering :)

2. As a radiant foundation
Mix some foundation with a few drops of Bio-Oil and voila again! You get a moisturizing, glowy and radiant foundation! I tried it, and felt that although the coverage is being sheered out, it gives a healthy radiance while not feeling too oily. Most radiant foundations are too oily for me, so I was pretty glad about this moisturizing-yet-not-too-oily mix.

3. As a cuticle oil
Simply dab it onto cuticles. I admit that I don't take care of my nails - I do manicures often yet I don't ever use a cuticle oil because they are very oily and prevents me from carrying out the daily activities in life LOL. I hated the feeling so I tried it and I stayed away. Bio-Oil left me glad again, because it absorbed really fast and I can say bye to peeling, flaky cuticles in minutes!

Primarily, Bio-Oil reduces the appearance of scars and stretch marks (that's why its a cult product for pregnant ladies!), improves uneven skin tone, moisturizes ageing skin and dehydrated skin. Some of its other uses includes using it as a soothing after-sun product, pre-shave product, makeup primer, hair serum, body massage oil and bath oil. And of course, as many other ways you can think of.

I once used it in the bath, just by adding some into the bath tub, fill it with warm water and soak. My skin felt soft afterwards! No more dry skin due to prolonged soak in the bath! Not to mention that the lavender scent made the soak such a relaxing treat, perfect for winding down into the weekends. I also apply to my eyelashes (with a Q-tip) and I felt that they strengthened a lot, and looked thicker and lusher! Because Vitamin E is an effective ingredient for hair growth and Bio-Oil is abundant with it :)

Thought of more ways to use this already-very-multi-usage product? Now's a good time to get your hands on this limited introductory package of a 125ml bottle of Bio-Oil with free wet wipes at just $25.90 (the 60ml one is $15.90 on its own) at all leading pharmacies, personal care stores, selected hospitals and departmental stores this October 2013 :)

[SAMPLE REVIEW] Skinfood Salmon Eye Cream

Hi! I got this a sachet of Skinfood's Salmon Eye Cream with some Korean cosmetics, and only recently I felt like trying it :P

I know right! Salmon?! On your skin?! Well, that's Skinfood for you. Salmon is not as bad as.. CREAMY CHEESE MASK! Well, I like cheese in my food but not on my face. *squirms*

It does not smell one bit like salmon. Smells a lot like jasmine flowers, A LOT!!! An overly strong smell of jasmine, which is weird since salmon is used instead. *50 points deducted*

It's a white cream, which I feel is oily and fatty, and only a little is required. This sachet lasted me for 5 times, for both eyes! Not the best texture for an eye brightening cream. I believe this is gonna be bad for people with oily or problematic skin and may not be able to withstand the richness of this eye cream.

Stays really oily for at least 10 minutes, felt like the absorption was reeeaaalllyyy slow. Besides, I've used it for 5 times and there are no significant changes. No brighteni…

Hahaha okay so I received over 10 emails on whether I have an extra Macdonald's Hello Kitty to let go or not. Fact is that I didn't buy any >.< So I decided to create a blog post where you Kitty collectors can interact and hopefully get a reply from a potential buyer/seller. Simply comment on this post! :)

[HAUL] Holika Holika!

The first branch of Holika Holika opened its doors in Singapore @ Wisma Atria today! Supposedly at 12, but when I reached there, they were still drilling and hanging stuff, and said to be back in 30 mins.

A huge poster of its ambassador at the side of its shop, CN Blue!!!!!!! Mysterious Magic Cosmetics~ (and endorsed by guys and a cat.. Hmm mysterious enough)

Before it was open! Yet to pull down its blinds~ It's a shop tucked at the corner, beside an escalator. Near Cotton On!
Couldn't get a nice picture of its sign! But you can see a bit of its interior, which is a lavender colour and has nice shelves! It goes with a mystical or magical theme :)

My mini haul from the store! VERY DE EX PLS The highly raved about egg soap @ $20.00 for 2 eggs Make-up Starter primer @ $2.50 per piece Wonder Drawing Eyeliner Auto Stick @ $10.00 Enamel Magicara Long and Curling FREE hehehe

Its a small tube since its free! But its pretty good! There's fibre in it and the brush is kinda special…
