As some (or most) of you noticed, Luxola had a 2-hr flash sale last night! 30% storewide! And as you may also know, I’ve done a fair bit of shopping lately so I couldn’t go crazy at the sale. I limited myself to just 1 item and this is what I got~

I really like Luxola’s delivery service, they sometimes text me in advance to inform that they’ll be reaching in about an hour and that really makes things easier for me. And today’s delivery came half an hour earlier than the designated window! *thumbs up*

Anyway, I got the Get Glowin’ set (S$84, down from S$120) because I feel like my skin is a tad dull these days…=\ Who doesn’t want brighter skin right? And I’ve got good feeling about Skin Inc because I had a little 5ml bottle of the Coenzyme Q10 serum from a girlfriend and it really perked up my skin after only 2 days use!

A little bit about Skin Inc:

Skin Inc is the world’s first Skin Supplement Bar offering highly concentrated, 100% pure and active serums and skincare from Japan. Our customised skincare solutions empower time-starved individuals to create their own fuss-free skincare regimes, delivering maximum results. Everyone’s skin is different, so individual skin identities and their needs are addressed with products and treatments that are targeted at delivery to the skin’s deeper layers where it matters. Treatments are conducted using state-of-the-art non-invasive technology that delivers sustainable results, rivalling other invasive procedures.

(Umm I’m basically a sucker for anything made in Japan XP)

The Skin Inc Difference

  • Empowered skincare

    It is time you find out what your skin identity is and be conscious of what your skin needs to make informed choices.

  • Cents and sensibility

    Our products contain the optimal concentrations of active ingredients for best results in a shorter time. Skin Inc constantly undertakes research & development in Japan to create skincare formulas to better suit your evolving needs. We ensure our products contain 0% paraben and 0% scent.

  • Customised to solve skin problems

    We begin with a thorough assessment of your skin identity and our consultants are trained to customise the most effective solution to address your unique skin needs. We do not believe in typical stereotyping of skins into oily, combination and dry categories.

  • Skin-deep, fast, sustaining results

    Water-soluble, hydrolysed active ingredients reach the deeper skin faster, showing noticeable improvement often in as little as three days.

Info extracted from SkinInc

It says noticeable improvement in as little as three days, I noticed a difference in two!

I find it a tad disappointing that it says 3 x 10ml serums on the box when in reality you only receive 3 x 5ml….but for the price, it makes sense so I put it down as a printing error or something.

It’s that time of the year again! Off for my annual pilgrimage to the Land of the Rising Sun, Makeup & Fashion~

I really wanted to put in an entry before I left so I thought I’d just share what makeup and accessories went into the bag this time. Yeah yeah I know, this has ‘filler post’ written all over it >_<

Accessories first, I don’t wear as much hardware as I used to back in the day but it’s still an important part of my wardrobe…and these are my picks for the trip!

Unfortunately I can only tell that the 2 studded bracelets and chainmail-ish necklace were from H&M, the rest were from all over the place like Far East Plaza, online stores and previous trips. Oh excluding that Pandora bracelet up in the corner (^_^;;)

Really dig my ‘good for a bit-o-luck’ token that I got from a little store in Kichijoji last year~

And in the makeup section, I made a tiny pile.

=D

For base makeup, I brought:

- ClearLast Pore Smooth Base UV (purchased from Japan last year, probably gonna finish the tube this time)

- Clinique Even Better Foundation

- Kate Powderless Liquid for Cover

- Dasoda MG Mega Liquid Concealer

For eye make:

- Sleek Makeup Blush by 3 (Ok this one’s for the face obviously =P)

- Maybelline the Rocket Volum’ Express

- Maybelline Hypersharp Liner

- Too Cool for School 1 Day Tattoo Eyebrow

And lastly, lips:

- Edward Bess Ultra Slick Lipstick (in Sundown, it’s my perfect perfect nudie lipstick)

- Ultrasun Ultralip SPF30 lipbalm (first time I’ve had the word ‘ultra’ thrice in 2 lines haha)

- Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar Stain Gloss

- Urban Decay Naked Ultra Nourishing Lip Gloss

- Revlon Colorburst Matt Balm

- Sleek Makeup Pout Polish SPF15

And that’s the small part of my packing that I wanted to share today~ =)

Hope I’ll come back with a more manageable haul this year, looking forward to share them with you guys when I get back! =D *poof!*
