Last month, I made quite a major change in my skincare routine. I stopped using facial oils both day and night and went back to using a Japanese brand. I need to qualify that I still love using facial oils and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with them. It just so happened that I was sent a set of the new Fancl aging care line and I thought I’ll just make a complete switch. Plus, adding oil on top of the 5-step skincare seems too much anyway.
Hands up, all of you who get excited with beauty gadgets! Okay, my hands are up. Yes, I am always thrilled about beauty gadgets and some of you may remember my attempts at rolling my face with needles. Okay, I no longer prick my face anymore and so, the derma rollers I have is now sitting somewhere in a cold, dark corner, feeling totally wasted. Anyway, I’ve moved on and am currently using the ReFa Pro Platinum Electronic Roller to roll on my flabby arms, bulging tummy, fat thighs and *ahem* saggy butt.
Yes, yes, yes, I have a propensity to eat beauty supplements even though I’m a bit reluctant to admit. I’ve actually been into them since my late 20s, buying all sorts of skin, hair and nail supplements. But I haven’t been all that consistent and stopped taking them for at least a couple of years but this year, they’ve made a comeback into my life because there are now so many brands on offer and their prices are very competitive. Like this AFC Japan Collagen Beauty is only S$43.30 before any discounts and it’s good for 45 to 90 days of consumption!
A week ago, I started taking Inner Beauty Japan, a natural and plant-based supplement that aims to stabilize female hormones and protect our skin against free radical damage. This product has been selling at luxury spa shops in Japan for around four years and since January this year, has made its foray into Singapore. Now, given that there are already tons of beauty supplements available in the market so what’s so different about this product?
