Lancome Advance Genifique

The reason why women pay so much emphasis on skincare is to make themselves look younger and Lancome's Advanced Genifique Youth Activating Concentrate is the solution to creating that exceptional light called the youthful aura. 

The radiance and visible luminosity of the skin is the result of a complex interplay between light and the different skin tissue structures - It is the effect of surface  reflection and backscattered inner light

As time passes, fatigue and dryness set in and the skin’s quality is reduced. Light reflection on the skin surface is diminished and inner light is not backscattered as efficiently. With this loss in intensity, this phenomenon has an undisputed impact on the skin’s luminosity.

By improving the structure of the skin surface, Advance Genifique re-activates the skin’s luminosity.

This is also why the Lancome Advanced Genifique is one of the oldest and most consistent products I've been using in my skincare regime. Scrolled through hundreds of photos on my Instagram to get to this photo I uploaded more than 2 years ago. I've been a fan of this product since! 

Simply put, the Lancome Advanced Genifique is a youth activating concentrate that has scientifically proven its effectiveness in repairing and activating 10 visual and tactile signs that characterize youthful skin - Fine lines, coarse wrinkles, radiance, clarity, evenness, texture, resilience, tonicity, firmness and sagginess. 

The Lancome Advanced Genifique is the first and most essential step of my skincare regime as it not only activates and repairs youthful skin, it also increases the efficacy (Up to 3x) of the other products I apply on my face.

It performs a double action on key signs of youth: repairing and activating visible signs for an unprecedented youthful skin result. The Advanced Genifique benefits from Lancome's latest research discoveries & is enriched with a biotechnology-derived ingredient that works in harmony with the skin. So advanced that this formula is patented until 2029. 

Besides its amazing effects on the skin, I also really love the bottle's design! With just one twist, the self-loading dropper picks up the right amount of product for optimal application. How convenient! 

 Refreshing and more enveloping than ever, the Advanced Genifique is instantly absorbed in my skin leaving it firm and bouncy with a soft, silky finish. I like to use it in the morning before make-up because this serum keeps my skin moisturized. 

After a positive experience with the Lancome Advanced Genifique, I was thrilled to be given the Genifique Yeux Light Pearl Eye Illuminator & Eye Concentrate to try!

This is the first serum with a pearl applicator for 360 degree illumination of the eye contour. 

More flexibility and precision with this new applicator. 

I like to use it in the morning as it refreshes my eyes and reduces eye bags. 

3 expert application steps for targeted actions

There is no better time to try this product with it only going at $98 for the 30ml version! (Usual $130)
Only valid until 31st August, while stocks lasts, so wait no more and get yours to experience the youthful aura!

Today I'm very excited to share about the Hydrafacial treatment I did with @drjyong a couple of weeks back and I'm absolutely blown away by the results! 

Before I started the treatment, I was briefed that Hydrafacial involves the use of a non-laser skin resurfacing technology, and is the only hydradermabrasion procedure that combines cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, hydration and antioxidant protection simultaneously.  

The result? Brighter, plumped skin with no downtime! 

A series of patented hydro-peel tips (3 altogether!) with multiple peeling edges are used to achieve more effective and even results. The unique spiral design creates a vortex effect to easily dislodge and remove impurities while at the same time introducing hydrating skin solutions with potent antioxidants into the skin.  

After my face was clear of make-up, my therapist started cleansing and exfoliating my skin with this vacuum tip. This deeply cleanses the pores and lifts away debris, impurities and dead skin cells.  I could feel a "sucking" motion as the vacuum tip ran over my face and instead of feeling any discomfort, I actually enjoyed it - As if it was a massage! 

Most conventional glycolic peels will leave your skin stinging for a few minutes until they are washed off but the acid peel used in this treatment is so gentle that creates only the faintest tingle. 

The automated vortex effect of this hydropeel tip dislodges and sucks out blackheads, whiteheads and sebum from the pores quickly and painlessly unlike manual extractions. Truth be told, I haven't done any extractions since my first facial extraction experience during my teens because it was so much pain!! 

This vortex-fusion tool infuses an antioxidant and collagen rich serum into the skin to promote elasticity and hydration. 

There wasn't any redness on my face at all! Instead, it felt clean and glowy. 

I was given a chilled collagen mask at the end of the treatment and it was amazingly refreshing! It came into a cool rubbery form after drying and you can see how tickled I was as it was removed from my face.  

All in all, I am very pleased with the results - My skin felt incredibly clean, soft and well hydrated the whole of next week. I also like that I could head out straight after the treatment with no downtime. Thank you @drjyong for this awesome skin treat!

Kite Day At Marina Barrage 2015

It was Kite Day at Marina Barrage last weekend and since we didn't have anything planned on Saturday morning, we decided to pop by! 

This is our first visit to Marina Barrage since it was redeveloped and I regret not visiting earlier! 
Just how much were we missing out on?! The gorgeous Singapore skyline filled with kites of various colours and sizes greeted us as we approached the upper deck.

Organized by PUB, fliers from all over the world gathered to showcase their uniquely designed giant kites & outstanding flying skills. In conjunction with SG50, special aerial stunts was performed by kite fliers such as Singapore's Team Airnergy. There were also other activities such as Lolli-drop for the kids, Eco Wind Garden Workshop and Kite Making Workshop - ensuring there is fun for everyone! 

We really wanted to stay for the kite making workshop but we had another appointment in the afternoon so we had to give it a miss. 

It was a light hearted atmosphere filled with tons of smiles and colour. Apart from young families and couples, I also spotted school children taking a walk with some old folks, extremely heart-warming. 

We had so much fun watching and learning from the pros as they effortlessly flew their kites up into the sky. 

We were not only blessed with a good view, the weather was beautiful with occasional breezes as well - Possibly because we were right next to the reservoir.

Don't frown if you missed Kite Day because this SG50 weekend, PUB, Ministry of Social & Family Development and RSAF will be organizing a series of activities!! 

Happening from 7th to 9th August, 8AM to 8PM. 

Activities as follow:

Families for Life Picnic ( 7 & 8 Aug)
At FFL picnics, families will be able to enjoy nostalgic childhood games for Singaporeans to reminisce the good old days, performances by local artistes, as well as carnival stalls and games. The FFL Mobile Café will also be making its appearance at the SG50 picnics, serving complimentary food and beverages. Do visit for more information.

Black Night Aerial Display (7,8 & 9 Aug)
Marina Barrage also offers a good vantage point to catch a spectacular aerial display by The Republic of Singapore Air Force Black Knights – Singapore’s very own aerobatics team – that will be performing for Singaporeans over the Jubilee Weekend!

Carnival Activites (7,8 & 9 Aug)
Flea market stalls will be offering great selection of food, drinks, accessories and lifestyle products. Look out for kids activities, rides and inflatables!

Live Screening of Parade (9 Aug)
Catch the live screening of the National Day Parade with fellow Singaporeans at the Marina Barrage Green Roof. Watch the celebration against the spectacular city skyline and be wowed by the flypass!

Fireworks (9 Aug)
The amazing firework sets against the scenic backdrop of Marina Bay Sands and the business district is not to be missed!

See you if I see you? :P
