Solution to hairless underarms and legs!

September 1, 2014
I’m not sure about you but I’m not one who very much like body hair. Unfortunately, I’m considered relatively hairy for an asian girl since birth and I really dread it. I feel it looks so unsightly and makes me look less feminine. I love my shorts but having long skinny legs aren’t enough when it’s hairy, and those who shave or veet know what a hassle it can be especially when you’re rushing out. I used to veet my legs but it kinda dehydrates my skin and leaves it a bit flaky? Besides, I keep getting small little cuts whenever I veet-ed too hard. And the worst part is, I can never fully remove all the hair. Like some spots are just more stubborn?
My number one pet peeve is also seeing girls airing their visibly hairy underarms. That’s just a BIG FAT NO!!! It’s revolting and girls should never be seen with thick underarm hair (that’s just my personal opinion and I’m sure MANY of you would agree). I had previously done IPL on my underarm but it didn’t fully remove all the hair so I’ve decided to get rid of them once and for all at a new another parlor, Regina.
And in case, you think that shaving is your best bet, it’s NOT. Shaving makes your skin rougher and dehydrated, darkens your underarms, and causes the pores to enlarge making your underarm look like chicken skin.
If you don’t know what I mean, here you go.

YUCKS RIGHT?!!!!! I cringe just at the sight of it!!!!!! You need to STOP shaving if you don’t want your underarm to end up looking like that!
So I recently started my KPL treatments for lower legs and underarm at Regina hair removal specialist!
They use a technology called KPL similar to IPL to effectively and safely remove unwanted hair with zero downtime and it’s almost painless.
Just a little info about KPL!
KPL uses intense light energy to safely and effectively remove unwanted hair from any parts of the body, putting an end to routine shaving and waxing. The light energy is absorbed by the pigment in the hair, melanin, which then converts to heat. The heat damages the hair follicle and destroys its ability to re-grow without harming the surrounding tissues.
Regina uses the latest advance FDA approved, patented pulsed light technology which delivers a higher performance with reduced side effects compared to other KPL devices. All their beauty consultants were highly trained by professional trainers in Japan so they’re really good and professional!
Very comfortable and cosy treatment room with a closet to keep your clothes and personal belongings!
Very clean equipments!
The corridor of the treatment rooms which is very minimalistic, I like!
A very satisfied me after 1 hour of KPL treatment on my lower legs and underarm!
It’s been about a month since I did the treatment and I must say I’m pretty damn impressed cos my leg hair actually grew significantly lesser, and it only took ONE treatment! I forgot to take a before picture of my legs to show you how hairy it was but here’s my leg now without shaving or any other form of hair removal.

 

 

 

*no filter/photoshop, only adjusted brightness
I didn’t expect it to be so effective! Thought it would take at least 2-3 sessions for me to see a significant difference but it only took 1. I’m honestly still quite shocked. I’m not gonna take a picture of my underarm cos that’s just weird but I’ve only shaven once throughout this one month and it’s still very bare. Even the hair that grew out were really fine.
It’s almost painless, just feel like needle gently poking your skin when the laser hits you. And zero downtime!
Regina has won many awards for its KPL hair removal service so it’s really reliable! Besides, I’ve tried it for myself and it works!

 

Do you see the words “winner” and “best”?? I think they really deserve the accolade.
And in case you’re wondering how the hair growth cycle works.
Happy that I’ve come to know about Regina and so excited for my next session in September!
Apart from hair removal, they do facials, eyelash enhancement and body contouring as well (:
They are currently having a special promotion!
$49 for 2 sessions Bikini Line KPL Hair removal + 2 Whitening Treatment


Super worth it!

My detox journey : Joob

July 3, 2014
As we get older, it’s important to live well and be healthy. I’m super lazy to exercise and I eat lots of unhealthy food cos I snack a lot. But I’ve been trying to live healthily of late by going for pilates, gymming with Daniel and detoxing once in awhile. So I’m gonna share with y’all my 3 days detox journey. Hopefully y’all will try it out as well cos I really saw a difference!
So I signed up for a 3 day detox program at www.joob.sg. They have 1-5 days programs, depending on what you want. 3 days program’s the most popular one!
I chose Joob because it’s 100% organic, fresh, cold-pressed juice. It uses the best juicer to ensure maximum nutrients are extracted.
My juices came in a cooling box to preserve the freshness. So thoughtful and convenient!
So that’s 6 bottles for one day of detox! 18 for 3 days. I know I know, it sounds a lot and intimidating but just think of a flatter stomach of 3 days of detoxing (: Besides if you’re a fruit/vege lover, you’re gonna enjoy drinking these!
So basically, I had to abstain from alcohol, coffee and have plenty of rest pre-detox. On the day of detox, I just had to drink the juices according to the number sequence every 2-3 hours. It’s suppose to replace my solid meals, and I have to keep myself hydrated with water in between each bottles.
List of ingredients in each bottle pasted at the back.
Bottle 1 : Apple, cucumber, spinach, celery, kale, lemon
Bottle 2 : Orange, pineapple, cucumber and mint
Bottle 3 : Apple, cucumber, celery, spinach, kale, lemon
Bottle 4 : Lemon, agave, filtered water, cayenne pepper
Bottle 5 : Carrot, pear, beetroot, ginger, lemon
Bottle 6 : Cashew nut, agave, vanilla extract, H2O
I have to admit it wasn’t easy at all. Some of it tasted too vege-ish to me but still manageable. My favorite has to be no.4 though, it tastes like lime juice! And, I had a lot of food cravings during the detox program. Like I was craving for mixed rice and fries on day 1, and….durian on day 2 hahaha! It was tough curbing these cravings but I did it anyways and completed my 3 days detox program.
In the process of it, I pooped a lot and had pimple breakouts which were ways of my body releasing toxins. Not everyone has the same way of detoxing, some has runny nose or fart a lot. It differs! But I really do see a difference in my tummy! It became flatter after all the pooping. Also, I can sleep better and earlier now which is AWESOME.
Here are benefits from detoxing :
I would definitely do it again, maybe once every 3-6 months? It certainly feels good to let out all the toxins in my body.

 

Choose Joob if you wanna try detoxing! They do home deliveries if you have no time to pick up from their shop.

Thank you Joob for making me healthier (:

DazzleMeLens

June 22, 2014
HIIIII!
I’m gonna introduce y’all to Dazzle Me Lens today, the place I’ve been buying my colored lens for the past year!I always get questions about my colored contact lens on my instagram, blog and askfm(when I was still active hehe). For those who have been reading my blog for a long time, you would know that I don’t like super fancy contact lenses or those that enlarge my pupils a lot. I like them natural and brown!
Cocoro BrownThis is my FAVORITE OF ALL TIME! I’ve been wearing Cocoro Brown for a year or more and I always buy at least 2-3 pairs at one time. It’s very natural looking yet it gives my eyes the extra oomph! Most importantly, it doesn’t have that thick black outer ring which makes my eyes look fake and over the top.
Little Glamourous Gray
Gray is another color that I won’t mind wearing besides brown. Very safe and dolly color!
Little Glamourous BrownThis is the brown under the “Little Glamourous” range. They all have the slight fiery dimensions to it which really make the eyes pop!
Orchid HoneyI really like the color of this pair!!! It really has a tinge of yellowish honey color to it, very mild and girly.


VistaPlus BrownThis has got to be my second favorite among the lot! It has these pretty swirls around it which really add volume to my pupils.
 Lily 4tone (Jewel 4tone, brown)This to me is a bit more contrasting than the rest hence it’s my least favorite. However, if you’re the kind who likes your colored lens obvious then this is perfect for you! :DI like how colored lens instantly add definition to my eyes and make them nicer!
I’m not saying all these good things just because I’m sponsored but because I’ve been wearing these lens for more than a year already and I like them. Been a paying customer for the past year until they approached me recently!

These colored contact lens are from Thailand, DAZZLE ME LENS!! So far, I haven’t encountered any problem from wearing their lenses so don’t worry. Besides, the shop owner’s dad is an ophthalmologist who confirmed that the lens are safe to wear. Not only that, all their contact lens are safely imported from South Korea and have certificates from KFDA!

They provide super fast delivery service to Singapore and all models are available from 00 degree to 1.00 power!

Prices:

1 pair – 230 baht (~9.2 SG$)

 

2 pairs, 200 baht each (~8 SG$ each)

 

3 pairs, 180 baht each (~7.2 SG$ each)
5 pairs, 170 baht each (~6.8 SG$ each)
10 pairs, 160 baht each (~6.4 SG$ each)
**1 SG$ is approximately 25 baht

 

Shipping ranges from SGD$10 to SGD$22 so it’s more worth it if you buy more to spread out the cost!
