What's your Beauty Concern?
Despite people telling me that I look like an undergrad, the flip side whenever I hear that comment is that I myself know what my actual age is, and warning bells go off telling me I need to be vigilant in preserving my youth.
The VitaRealm Beauty launched an Anti-A.G.E. Essence that's meant to Regenerate, Energize and Lighten your skin tone. The essence contains a Youth Revival Complex which will reverse the glycation process and fight aging signs. :)
The VitaRealm Anti-A.G.E Essence also contains Rose Extract that is a strong anti-oxidant, helping to strengthen skin cells & regenerate skin tissues which will thus help to fight aging signs (wrinkles, fine lines) etc.
The change in hair color probably brightened up my skin color tone a little, but honestly the daily supplement helped me feel less tired and more hydrated. It didn't eradicate the fine lines around my eyes, but my skin feels more plump and fresh.
I've recently been using the SkinSoul Skin Shield™ set, that's a all-natural skincare range formulated in Switzerland.
SkinSoul is a high-end skincare and cosmetics company established in 2015 by Dr Jo’sLab. The ingredients used by SkinSoul are 100% paraben and lead free, with no artificial chemical additives, mineral oils and animal-derived ingredients. SkinSoul products are suitable for all skin types as they only use the most natural ingredients.
- Long-lasting hydration and suppleness
- Enhanced penetration of water into your skin as it is encapsulated into liposomal form
- Long-lasting moisturising effect
The SkinShield™ range is enriched with pure organic Ashitaba which is a A green leafy plant that grows in Japan, Hachijo Island. It has been used as a natural medicine for over 400 years, and is also known as the“tomorrow leaf” as it contains a variety of anti-oxidants called Chalcones. Chalcones are anti-allergic, anti-inflammatory, helps protect UV damage, is anti-bacterial, regenerative, contains anti-oxidants, promotes blood circulation and helps prevent infection. A fusion of other precious botanical extracts are also present. The best part is perhaps that the skincare doesn't contain unnecessary colouring and perfumes.
The SkinSoul Travel Essential Kit is a 5-piece travel essential set curated by SkinSoul for glowing skin even when you are on the go! It's the complete range that is suitable for all skin types, perfect for travelling, a trial, or even as a wonderful gift to a loved one this Christmas.
The set contains:
STEP 1. Cleanse with Hydra-Purifying Cleanser.
STEP 2. Follow with Lift & Bright Serum.
STEP 3. Apply the 12 in 1 Suncare Day Cream during the day and Night Cream at night
STEP 4. To stay refresh all day, simply spritz on the Hydrating, Energizing & Pore-Refining Lotion Mist Spray.
Besides the fact that the skincare range is au natural and light on the skin, my personal favourite is the 12-in-1 Suncare Day Cream, which makes the travel set absolutely worth it to get to try.
Other effects include tightening of the skin, brightening of complexion, rejuvenation, and minimisation of pores.

If you're area the area and looking for a hair salon in Katong, it's strongly recommended! If you're not in the area, head over and give organic hair products a try anyway. Organic hair dye and hair care salons are very rare, and it's something life-changing.
The ambience of the salon is warmly lit, and the decor was beautiful with plants and comfortable wood tones. The salon is spacious, and you won't feel "squeezed" with other customers like some other hair salons can be. The stylists are also very friendly, and the moment I arrived, I was greeted warmly! :D
Snacks and a choice of drinks were also offered.

I had a lot of concerns, as the last time I bleached my hair it felt like the hair got "stripped" and became straw-like. It was saved a little after olaplex treatments, and even so it remained dry for a long period of time despite daily conditioning, treatments, and serum/hair oils.
Me being the mountain tortoise, I didn't know that there could actually be organic bleach. The video (top left) is after the first round of bleaching, and the second (top right) shows how the hair is still soft. I was extremely thankful that my hair wasn't damaged. For people who has very thin, fine, and flat hair like mine, you'd know that our hall tangles easily and falls often.
The stylists take some time to get to know you a little, find out what colours you are inclined towards, what colors suit your skin tone, personality etc, and then they suggest some options that will work well with you.
I told them the colors I've tried, as well as what kind of "background" I have...
And they suggested a elegant yet still bold color because they think I'm sophisticated *happy dance*.
At times the different stylists come by and chat, and the overall atmosphere is one where everyone is friendly and the staff are happy.
As we all know, happy staff makes happy customers :D
Their pride in their work shows and they were meticulous - really, at some point they were literally specially dyeing a strand of 3 hairs or something, they were that precise.
Hair Color-Change Journey
BEST PART: The color fades gradually, looks interestingly different under different lightings, and someone just commented yesterday that the color has faded gorgeously. In fact his actual words were "Your hair color was gorgeous when you first dyed it, but I like the hair color even more now. It has been interesting watching your hair color change." <- Humbled ^^.
You don't have to worry about your hair turning a sickly shade of green or a washed out color because the products used at J&J Hair Identity are of very good quality, and the price is totally reasonable!
