[REVIEW] ioma Cell Protector SPF 50+ PA+++


Its been a really long time since I updated! Besides being busy with my daily work, I'm also trying out new products so here's a review of a product I was given awhile ago!

I was invited to the ioma Cell Protector launch awhile ago and had a skin analysis. Through this machine, I better understand my skin's concerns. It was totally not what I thought it was! For a long time, I thought my skin was dehydrated and kept spamming moisturizers and mists, but it turned out that my main concern was bacterial activity (the rest were within the healthy range). That explains the pimples and all but I totally have no idea how to deal with that. ioma provides customized solutions to almost every type of skin so do get your FREE skin analysis to better understand how to address your concerns! It is really important to get a professionally analysed skin because who knows, you are doing your skincare all wrong.

Only the bacterial activity was in the "bad" level, and I'm glad to see that I'm doing fine for the rest of the conditions.

Moving on to introduce their latest product, the ioma Cell Protector SPF 50+ PA+++! Its a sunscreen which does more that preventing sun damage - but also environmental stress (pollution, smoking, climate etc). According to the product info, "the combination of all environmental stress factors can cause premature skin ageing: loss of elasticity and firmness, the appearance of dark spots, loss of radiance and wrinkle formation." This product should be used after your skincare (ioma products are numbered for easy usage, and the number 7 on the product meant it should be used as a step 7, while e.g. moisturizers are 3 and cleansers are 1.) 

It is a good size to travel with and the pump is also really cool. You have to twist silver cap to erect the pump.

The product comes out off-white, while fully blending gives your skin a subtle glow.

I have used it daily the past month or so, as a first step for my makeup routine. The product is easily blendable, does not feel dry, but a wee bit sticky. Then I apply my powder foundation and the rest of the routine. I feel that it prolongs the powder and my face is relatively matte for about 6 hours. It doesn't cause me any breakouts or reactions, and I really love it as a primer and sunscreen, withstanding Singapore's humidity.

The ioma Cell Protector SPF 50+ PA+++ is available at Isetan Singapore, at $85 (30ml).

Thanks for reading!

[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…

[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…

Outing to Farmart


Met Angie for a bonding day awhile ago. Supposingly we went to the River Safari because Angie had free tix, but we ended up at Farmart because the tix were expired. The trip to Farmart totally savaged the day!

The place is easily accessible by taking a shuttle bus ($1 each way) that comes every 30 mins, opposite Choa Chu Kang Lot 1. It was an eye-opener for me. It felt like Malaysia. Lol.

There was a pet food store cum pet hotel and I bought some food (vitakraft sticks & fish fillets) for my favourite neighbourhood cats. The pricing is slightly cheaper than town prices so I bought a bigger pack. The place mainly is a farm and food place, as online articles mentioned that they sell cheaper seafood but the stalls were mostly closed that day. There were also a bird shop and prawning area. The farm.. is really interesting.

There were super tamed parrots (or mini parrots lol)
Stacked tortoises
Creepy toads
Sleepy birds
We bought the feed while we were there. The $5 set was totally …
