LUSH Aesthetics

Sponsored Post

Recently went to LUSH Aesthetics, my new facial sponsor (yay!) for my first ever facial treatment in my life. LOL. I haven't done facials before because I have rather good skin.. I get breakouts occasionally.. especially when I get my period. Also, I actually don't really take good care of my skin because I'm a very lazy person. But when I got the chance to work with Lush Aesthethics I jumped straight in because I know my skin can be better improved and I want to start taking good care of my skin since I'm getting older (omg I'm gonna be 22 next year WHUT)!!!

Some info on Lush Aesthetics:
"LUSH Aesthetics is a Multi Award-Winning Aesthetics Centre aimed to be the leading Aesthetics Centre in Singapore with the latest aesthetic equipment and the latest FDA approved Aesthetic Technologies. We believe in delivering a safe and non-invasive total aesthetic solution for an overall transformation.

At LUSH Aesthetics, we provide a premium one-stop solution for teeth whitening, hair removal, skin care, hair care and slimming.

LUSH Aesthetics is the place where you discover a new you."

I had an appt last Friday and went down to LUSH Aesthetics @ Tanglin Shopping Centre. The staff were super friendly and welcoming when I arrived! Made me feel very comfortable hehe.

(Ok 2 different camera qualities because my Samsung NX Mini died on me and had to be sent for repair, thus I brought my old DV300F instead and the photo quality SUCKS)

(Photo credits here)

I first had a consultation with one of the staff there Leticia. Leticia had to remove my makeup and analyse my skin. She told me I had good skin (yay!) but my skin was SUPER DRY. Which was something that confused me because all these while I thought I had super oily skin. She explained that it was because I didn't moisturize my skin enough, thus my skin was super dry and in order to compensate for the dryness, my skin produces more oil because it is too dry! And all these while I've been using products for oily skin when I was supposed to use products for dry skin -_- I'm so thankful that I now know I have dry skin and have been using moisturizer every day now! I

Leticia told me that I should never skip the moisturizer because I sleep in an airconditioned room as well, which sucks all the moisture out of my skin and leaves my skin super dry! She recommended a laser face treatment called AlmaLASE for me.

The Laser Face Treatment by AlmaLASE at LUSH Aesthetics utilizes the latest technology in Laser Face Rejuvenation. This treatment targets various skin conditions and imperfections such as acne, open pores, pigmentation, brown spots, dull skin, aged skin, fine lines and wrinkles. This treatment is most commonly used for the pores, pimples and pigmentation. The core benefits of this treatment would be an immediate whitening and exuding radiance from the skin. At the same time, we can notice lightening and improvements of imperfections of the skin.

This quick and effective treatment utilizes micro beams of lasers along with an in-motion technology to eliminate signs of aging and imperfections. No preparation required for this laser treatment and practically no down time, enabling you to resume routine activities immediately. It is painless and safe for everyday use to ensure that your skin is at tip-top condition all day long.The AlmaLASE Laser Facial empowers dry-cleansing of face without the fear of high costs, downtime and side effects. 

These was my room! It was super comfy but the pics don't do justice because my camera sucks :(((
This was taken after the treatment at night with no base makeup (only concealer for my under eyebags):
 My before and after photos aren't drastic and you can't see much of a difference because I did not have any redness or acne/pimples. But take a look at some pictures I took from the website:
There is a significant difference as you can see!!! 

I can tell you that my skin felt super fresh, smooth and tighter after the treatment though. When I went home, my parents told me my skin looked better and smoother hehe. 

This is 1.5 weeks post treatment and I love how my skin looks! (I do have concealer on for my under eye circles but no foundation/bb cream/whatever at all!)
See how smooth it is!!! I use to use BB/CC cream every day but now I can skip this step!
 You can see that my nose is still a little dry though. Still trying to get into the moisturizer regime haha.

But overall, I'm super satisfied with my first facial laser treatment with Lush Aesthetics :)

Updates x Salon De Choix


Finally found some time to squeeze in a blog post! My last post was in June. It's September now.. Oops :p

Anyway, just a little update on why I have not been blogging for the past few months - I started university!!! (who would have thought?!?! Never ever felt like I could make it this far..)

Basically, I'm doing Business in NTU if you were wondering. I got offered from all 3 unis (NUS, NTU & SMU) but it wasn't THAT tough deciding which school to choose. Ultimately boiled down to NTU because my tutor from poly told me that NTU's learning style is more like poly - moreover, it only takes 3 years for me to complete my degree with direct honours ^^)

Life in uni isn't easy or how I expected it to be. I was the top 10% of my cohort for poly, but in uni, it feels like I'm in the bottom 10%. I feel like everyone here is so much smarter than me, and definitely more hardworking. I always had the mentality since secondary school/poly to be the TOP TOP TOP TOP TOP. That's because I did so well for N and O levels and I would say my GPA was above average as well. Moreover, I received quite a number of book prizes back in poly.. and tutorials were always a breeze for me. Over here, it's like I'm being outshined by so many other people. But I won't give up la, I'll still continue to work hard and do my best! My business law prof told us, your GPA in uni doesn't matter. I mean, it's true, as long as we get our degree, it's good enough right? 

This being said, I'm still trying to adapt to the uni culture and I hope I do well this semester at least. 

Moving on... MY NEW HAIRRRR!!!

If you don't already know, Salon De Choix has been my hair sponsor since last year! I love the service there and I'm very blessed to have my hair managed by Chester, my hair stylist! So my contract with them has been renewed and they're gonna be doing my hair for awhile now! YAY!

If you recalled, I chopped off my hair in May:
I REALLY REALLY LOVED the cut. But I couldn't manage it and everyday it would end up looking so horrible because my hair is soft rebonded and if I didn't curl the ends, it would just look super flat. I felt that I could not pull off short hair.

In June/July, I did something as well - highlighted my hair grey. But my skin tone being a warm yellowish-orangey skin tone, LOOKED AWFUL WITH GREY COLOUR!!!!!!!! Let me show you just how I looked with grey and short hair:
 See how bad I look in grey hair, especially without makeup LOL
I loved the grey, Chester did an AWESOME job with it. But I just couldn't pull it off. 

Thus I decided to get hair extentions around 1 month back:
Did it at Fareast and was pretty impressed with how it turned out. 

There was only one problem though... 

IT WAS SO HEAVY because it was too long. More over it didn't blend in with my real hair very well because my real hair was super straight!!!

Headed back to Salon De Choix last Sunday to get it fixed hehe! Decided to change up the colour because I was feeling pretty bored with brown, and have always wanted to experiment with funky colours! Told Chester I wanted GREENISH BLUE in my hair! But he suggested half blue half purple, which I agreed to!

Started off with bleaching my hair... I love blondeeee!! He had to bleach it twice though, this was after the first session.
Then he proceed to apply blue on my left and purple on my right. We let it sit in... and I was off for a rinse! Can you see the blue and purple? ;)

I LOVE THE END RESULTTT. I also cut my extensions btw, because they were SUPER long.
But I usually wear my hair in curls, so Chester curled it for me! :)

I LOVE IT!!!!! Been getting lotsa compliments from my friends, hehe! Can't wait to see what the colour fades to, as well as head back next month for a different colour :)

If you quote my name 'ISABELLA', you get 15% all chemical services. Also for the month of September, they're having a 20% promotion for their anniversary. So what are you waiting for???

Thanks for reading guys! I'll catch you in my next post :)

Sudio Sweden

Sponsored Post

About Sudio

Sudio is a Swedish lifestyle brand which produces elegant earphones and offers studio quality sound. The name Sudio comes from an incident when one of the founders spotted musician Phil Collins in New York having problems with his headphones. With the frustration of not yet being able to offer any better alternative to Phil, the only words he could out were: “trust me I know the feeling”, as they shared eye contact. The name Sudio is a homage to the Phil Collins song 'Sussudio' and the determination of succeeding with the venture rendered from the bitter sweet anecdote.

When Sudio first contacted me and asked if I would be keen together to work with them, I was like wait, what and who is Sudio? A simple google search led me to their website and I was amazed by the earphones they were selling on their website. Their designs are classy and sophisticated, yet minimalistic at the same time. I decided to read about some of the reviews and saw that many people enjoyed using Sudio and mentioned that the sound quality was superb. Of course, I then jumped at the opportunity to work with them!

Their brand representative asked me to choose from their range of designs, and the Klang caught my attention almost immediately. I love white & gold, so this colour combination together is PERFECT for me. Plus, all the past earphones I used were either from Apple or those cheapo $5 kind from flea markets. I was actually super excited to try out these ones. The earphones arrived within less than a week and when I opened the package, my jaw literally dropped because I loved the packaging so much. 

Currently, Sudio has only two products; Klang and Två. Klang is designed for the iOS system and thus works best on the iPhone while the latter, Två, features one button only to fit all devices. As an iPhone user, I went with the Klang of course!

This was what I received:
I love the fact that the Klang comes with extra sleeves in different sizes, meaning that if you have smaller/bigger earholes, there will be sleeves to cater to your needs! I also love the fact that it comes with the leather case! I've always just chucked my earphones inside my bag and they get all tangled up. Bu with this case, it makes things much easier for me, also, it's so pretty!
It also comes with the instructions, guarantee certificate and owner's manual.
I gave the earphones a try the minute I opened my package, and I must say I am pretty impressed by the sound quality. You may think I'm saying this because I'm sponsored but no, trust me! I love how I basically can't hear anything else except my music when the earphone is in my ear. Like literally, I can't hear ANYTHING else. When I used my previous Apple earphones, I had to blast my music really loudly if I didn't wanna hear the MRT 'doors closing' sound or the bell sound on the bus. But with this, I don't even have to blast my music. Also, I love that the Klang delievers a natural bass without compromising the high tones. It lets you experience a true representation of the artist's recording.

The Klang comes in 4 different colours, but like I said, I love white & gold so of course I had to pick that!

Shipping is always free when you purchase through their website. Normal delivery time is within 24 hours for shippings within Sweden and 2-5 days for international shipments. Courier may vary depending on the specified destination.

It retails at SGD$75 but I can assure you that it is worth the money that you pay because this product is of high quality, and is one of a kind!

Salon De Choix

Sponsored Post

Went back to my salon sponsor, Salon De Choix yesterday to touch up my growing roots, treatment, and a hair cut that I've wanted for quite awhile now! And I'm very pleased with the results!! Hehe, thank you Chester once again, for always leaving my hair in such good condition :')

I didn't blog about the previous time I went there, but I did soft rebonding because I was so sick of my wavy hair. Soft rebonding has made my hair so much smoother and manageable. No doubt it is straighter, but I can always curl it with my own curler as and when I want to. 

This was the result:
However, I wasn't really happy with the cut/length as I wanted something completely different from how I look. I've had long hair for so many years now and it's gotten to a point where I feel like I need a bigger change in my appearance. And also, girls like IAMKARENO (youtuber) and Kiko Mizuhara (model) made me wanna cut my hair so bad!!! I saved a lot of their photos in my phone cuz I wanted to show my hairdresser what hairstyle I wanted.


Kiko Mizuhara:

So, I decided to go for it, although a tad bit longer as I wanted to be safe! Even though quite a few of my friends told me not to.. :(

Got my hair dyed a darker tone of ash/warm brown!
And then treatment and a haircut:
I'd like to say I love it a lot!! I feel like a different person hehehehe!

I guess change is only constant and hair will always grow! I can't wait to see what looks I can pull off with this hair :) I'm thinking of dying it a whacky colour next time HAHA, like purple or something.
