Review: Nivea Body Intensive Moisture Serum SPF 25

Bonjour Bella!

My days are spent mostly inside an air-conditioned room. Because of this, my skin tends to get really dry and rough. I’m drinking around 2 Liters of water per day but I find that it isn’t enough to keep my skin well-hydrated.

Aside from that, my skin is also exposed to the hot Singapore weather every single day. Exposure to the sun makes my skin dry and itchy. Plus, it makes me have uneven skin tone. :( My colleagues can testify to how my skin gets really red especially after being exposed to the sun.

These are the reasons why I’m always on the lookout for a good moisturizer that will help keep my skin become smooth, supple, and healthy.

Because of my constant search for the perfect moisturizer, I now have a shelf full of all types of moisturizers. I have creams and lotions for all parts of the body (from face to feet). I also have body oils and body butters. But among all of these, my current favorite is the NIVEA Body Intensive Moisture Serum with SPF 25. (This product actually reminds me so much of the Nivea Intensive Moisture Body Milk that I have been using back in 2012 up to 2013.)

Unboxing: BellaBox September 2014 “Urban Vibes” Beauty Box

Bonjour Bella!

I’ve received something fabulous in my September Bellabox, which I just received this afternoon. :) I’m so excited to share what’s inside my Bellabox so I immediately grabbed my iPhone and took photos.

This month’s theme is “Urban Vibes”. The word “urban” makes me think of people living in a fast-paced world who want everything instant. People who want to have the latest–whether in technology, fashion, or beauty. With that in mind, I got the feeling that I’ll be getting  products from NEW brands. Or at least, those that I’ve never heard of.

So let’s start the unboxing.

Review: Tsubaki Hair Oil

Bonjour Bella!

Do you have dry, frizzy, dull, or limp hair? I’ve discovered a new product that will make your crowning glory shine beautifully!

Introducing Tsubaki Hair Oil, a deeply penetrative hair oil formulated with a high concentration of selected camellia oil (from the Goto Islands in Nagasaki) which deeply protects, moisturizes, and repairs hair resulting in a luxurious shine.

Some of you might be wondering… Of all the oils, why camellia oil? Based on the Hair Institute data, hair becomes so much shinier, smoother, and stronger with camellia oil.

So why do we need hair oil at all? Why can’t we just shampoo, condition, blow dry, and comb our hair as usual? Why the need for an extra step?

Some of the reasons why our hair gets damaged is because of too much exposure to UV rays and to heat from hair dryers. Tsubaki Hair Oil protects hair from those harmful elements while at the same time preventing split ends and hair breakage. Because of these, it has helped me lessen hair fall–even a little bit! I love it!

Review: Activa Well-Being Detox

Bonjour Bella!

Being exposed to pollution, chemical additives, and stress, I often feel tired and weak. In an effort to relieve stress, I tend to overeat. Because of all these things, I often have constipation. :-( Toxins build up and clog some vital parts of my body. In the end, I get easily tired, look haggard, and easily fall sick.

I realized that its time to do some detox.

Activa Well-being Detox

Activa Well-being Detox

Two weeks ago, I started a detox program using Activa Well-Being Detox. I know most of you have never heard of this brand before. Honestly, I only got to know about Activa last April when it was included in the April 2014 Bellabox.

Last month, I met Jade from Activa who enthusiastically introduced the brand and its whole line of products to me. Since we share the same health philosophies and since I got really intrigued with their range of products, I decided to try their other products as well.

Review: Bio-essence Aqua Droplet Sleeping Beauty Mask

Bonjour Bella!

Are you looking for an easy and fun way to hydrate and revitalize your skin while you sleep?

I’d like to introduce Bio-essence Aqua Droplet Sleeping Beauty Mask.

My night ritual involves removing all traces of makeup, cleansing the skin, and applying moisturizer. Having combination skin, I prefer lightweight moisturizers to hydrate my skin. I rarely use masks because I find them very troublesome to use. So when I found out about this sleeping beauty mask from Bio-essence, I immediately wanted to try it. Thankfully, SampleStore.com sent me this wonderful product!
