Creme Simon 7 day Brightening Challenge

I've been using Creme Simon skincare for a while now and I can definitely agree that their skincare products work wonders for me. I've tried almost everything in their skincare range and I'm currently using their Foaming facial cleanser, Micellar makeup remover (LOVE THIS) , Dermo Activ Floral Serum, Hydrating toner mist and Night moisturizer!


So when they reach out to me and ask if I would like to try the Exfoliation Scrub and Lifting gel, I said yes!
Received the Creme Simon PR kit a while back which contained two of their best selling products, I put them to test for about two weeks now and there was definitely visible results.



1. Brightening Detox Gentle Double Exfoliation Scrub
This creamy gentle scrub contains 2 kinds of natural beads to refine and revitalize skin. The 2 kinds of natural beads are fine wheat particles which are soft and small irregular beads to polish and refine skin while the Jojoba beads are slightly bigger to exfoliate dead skin cells and accumulated dirt particles to unclog pores.
Specially formulated to be non-drying, it uses baby-safe cleansing ingredients for the most delicate skin. Unveil perfectly cleansed, smooth, soft skin with a lovely fresh glow.

2. Lymphatic Facial Contouring and Lifting Gel
Detox, De-Stress, Define. Aid your natural detoxification as you redefine facial contours and flush out toxins in a relaxing treatment. This exceptional gel turns into luxurious oil, as you gently massage face for slimmer, lifted visage. The perfect indulgent experience for facial massage & overnight treatment. Leave on or rinse off for immediate visibly brighter, incredibly softer and moisturized skin.


They've also included a really nice notebook in the PR package as well!

Review:
IMG_5738
Zero makeup on, right after I use 1 part Exfoliating scrub and 3 parts Lifting gel! My skin is visibly brighter and glowing. My skin also feels smoother and I like how the exfoliating scrub doesn't have huge harsh beads in it. The beads were tiny and didn't irritate my skin at all, which was a plus point! Definitely one of my favorite scrubs to use.
However, I much prefer to use the scrub and lifting gel individually- I like starting with the exfoliating scrub first, then going in afterwards with the lifting gel to contour my face and massage it. It does get rid of water retention in the long run! After one week of using the lifting gel to contour and shape my face, there was a 0.2cm decrease in both side of my cheeks due to lost of water retention!
(I have eyebrow embroidery + lash extension on which seems like I do have makeup but really, I don't. Also, please ignore my huge pole bruise on the arm.)

Overall I really like there was a visible brightening effect which is much more obvious in real life. If you're looking for a gentle facial scrub that's suitable for sensitive skin as well, or a facial scrub made with natural ingredients, you can check out the Creme Simon Brightening Detox Gentle Double Exfoliating Scrub. I think the Lymphatic Facial Contouring and Lifting gel is an extra skincare routine step that might not be suitable for everyone, however if you're like me who wants to get rid of excess water retention or prevent wrinkles from foaming and don't mind spending additional time to work and massage the product into your skin....I would definitely recommend this product as it is worth the extra effort!


You can take part in the 7-day Brightening Challenge to win a full set of Creme Simon Skincare and a pair of diamond earrings! Details on how to participate is listed in the photo above.
Good luck!

Ezbuy - Buy the world for you + FREE $10 Shopping credits

If you don't already know, I'm an avid shopper on Taobao because you can basically buy ANYTHING there. Most of the clothes you see online from local blogshops are from Taobao too, not to mention most of the shops in Bugis street/FEP/other local malls also carry clothes from Taobao because it's just so cheap to get it online! I've seen tons of clothes retailing for more than $30 online when you can just get the exact same one from Taobao for only $10!
IMG_5431
Taobao is basically a China Ebay where you can really find anything, from clothes to household products to furnitures etc. They have two groups of seller: Taobao retailer/consumer and Taobao Mall. Personally I prefer buying my Taobao items from Taobao Retailer/consumer (www.taobao.com) link cause it's usually cheaper plus it's easier to compare prices and reviews on it.

However, buying from Taobao would means you need to get the sellers to ship the items over, not to mention having to have a China bank account for payment which we don't really have...so why not get an agent to settle everything for you while you just sit back and relax?

I've been using Ezbuy for a year now (ever since they were 65daigou) and I really love how easy it is to use their service. The only thing I have to do is to add whatever I want to cart and make the payment. If I'm not sure about the item names or if I'm ordering the right item, I can always clarify with their Online-chat service which helps me to ensure that I'm ordering the right thing.
They also have a mobile app which makes shopping on the go convenient!

If looking at chinese words make your brain hurts, fret not because you can still shop Taobao items...on the Ezbuy website! They have categories of items listed down which includes items that people previously bought from. I usually browse through there to get inspiration for purchases. Everything is in english there so you can search for what you want on their website or just browse through the products listed.
Eg: I can browse through the Home & Garden category to see what items are available.
IMG_5464

BUT THAT'S NOT ALL!
If you don't already know, you can also shop from US and Taiwan websites through Ezbuy! It's the same "Buy for me" function as if you were to add a Taobao item. They also offer "Ship for me" services where you can order directly from USA websites and ship it to their warehouse. For the "Ship for me" service, you will be given an individual name and address that will allow your USA purchase to be sent to the warehouse, and then to Singapore to you. The good thing about their "Ship for me" service is that you don't have to pay any agent fee! I also use it when I'm shipping my USA purchases such as Victoria Secrets, Nordstrom, Drugstore, Amazon etc.

The best part is that Ezbuy also offers island wide delivery to the nearest warehouse or MRT station so you can collect your parcel easily instead of having to travel far just to get it. They have a warehouse at Dhoby Gaut which is good since you can shop around town before/after collection of your items.

Ezbuy is now offering a FREE $10 Shopping voucher if you register with this link here:
<bit.ly/eileenloves65> Go use it to try out their service and I'm sure you'll be hooked too!

I chanced upon this article called:"Your Quick Guide to Melbourne Road trip"  https://www.gobear.com.sg/blog/Detail/Your-Quick-Guide-to-Melbourne-Road-Trips

One of my dream is to take a few pole classes in Australia.
I know it sounds really normal but it's something that I've been wanting to do for a while now. There are a couple of really good pole studios in Australia such as the Felix Cane academy and Pole Dance Academy (where Michelle Shimmy is the co-owner!). I really want to try out classes there!
Not to mention, go to Bondi Beach and take a photo with the famous outdoor pole at the gym near the beach!

Photo from Poledanceacademy.au

It's sort of like going to Hong Kong for Dimsum or going to eat sushi in Japan! I'm not sure where pole dancing originated from but Australia has been a front runner in Pole expertise and I have always wanted to soak myself in that environment. Imagine just spending a month eating, sleeping and doing what you love!
