Hello Peeps!

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!! I’m finally back online after the cable guy finally fixed up the internet system on Christmas Eve in my new home! (So horrible to not be able to surf the internet freely with my limited data usage on my mobile) If you’ve been following my Instagram (@jessicatan22), you would know that I recently visited Perth, Western Australia. During the long 8 hour flight from HK and 8 days of extremely dry Australian climate, the latest REGEN’s  series of facial masks was tested out for their effectiveness.

I took along with me the Ultra Skin Moisturizing masks for the extremely dehydrating airplane ride & the Double Effect Collagen Care for a boost of suppleness & radiance to my skin in Australia.

I tried on the Ultra Skin Moisturising mask during the overnight flight from HK to Perth and it worked wonders. Just before I prepared to sleep, I washed my face and removed all traces of make-up and applied on the microfibre sheet mask. The microfibre sheet helps retain much more essence on a same sized sheet compared to other types of sheet masks and it fits every face shape (tried and tested on my boy’s face – fits him perfectly too). It also helps the essence penetrate deeper into our skin.

RESULTS: I slept with the mask on for about 4 hours and when I woke up, removed the crispy dried mask (from the dry air in the plane), my face was fresh, skin was filled with moisture and I didn’t look like I lack sleep. I simply applied a light moisturiser and REGEN’s CC cream as a sunblock and my skin didn’t feel dry the whole entire day when I was out exploring Fremantle & Rottnest Island. I highly recommend this mask to be in your travel essential kit. Especially for those long flights that usually makes our skin out of sorts.

As most of you would know, Australia is known for its dry, arid climate with beautiful sunny blue skies. Beautiful country yes, but one of the most harsh climates for our skin, causing it to age faster than it should. Hence, I also packed in the Double Effect Collagen Care Mask for it’s anti-aging effects and a boost of collagen and moisture to my skin. Holidays are meant to rejuvenate our bodies and not age us!

RESULTS: Every night I would apply on the Collagen Care microfibre mask just before bedtime to take away the long hours of driving and exploring sunny & dry Western Australia off my skin. And I am glad to say the masks really helped. The usual tightness in my skin in Australia never surface, skin always felt plump and radiant every morning when I woke up, and application of make up was made easier and texture was smoother and firmer. My face looked fresh even though I slept late and woke up early daily.

This series of facial masks is developed to recreate that perfect baby skin that we were all born with, looking just as smooth and flawless like a Barbie doll. Hence the very apt name “Plastic Skin Solution”.

Here’s the rest of the series and their active ingredients for our different skin needs:

These masks are available from REGEN’s website retailing at KRW30,000 for 10sheets per box. Very worth it for its effectiveness and amount of essence in each mask IMO.

So that’s all for now, a very happy holidays to all of you & may you have a fun-filled joyous 2015!

Everyone’s human… Who doesn’t get pimples and hates them? I DO!!!

A girlfriend of mine who is in the Beauty industry (she works for Luxasia in Singapore) introduced this miracle lotion that zaps pimples like a Starship Trooper!

Ever since she got me my first bottle from her US trip, I got hooked! I can’t live without it as it cures my pimple-woes. An overnight application of this and it dries up in the morning, making the pimple “ripe to pop!” saving time and misery nursing a puss-y pimple for days.

Inside this glass bottle contains active ingredients like salicylic acid, calamine, camphor & titanium dioxide which helps dry out the white head immediately. As you can see from the photo above,  there’s 2 separate layers – liquid & powder. Keep it that way and don’t shake it up before application.

How do you use it?

First, take a cotton bud/Q-tip and dip it straight into the bottle coating the tip with the powder. Remember not the shake the bottle before application.

Then take the cotton bud out and let the excess liquid drip back into the bottle.

Lastly & most importantly, apply it onto that evil pimple of yours!

Mine was a huge-ass one on my left nostril!!! Pain as hell… So zap away!!! *evil laughter*

Then the next morning, the puss-head fell out & pimple dried up! DEAD!

I know I have make-up on in the after picture, but you can really see how the pimple is dried up, flattened and the skin is flaking off for new skin to grow and it is easily concealed with some concealor without a nasty bump on your face.

My girlfriend got my first bottle from Sephora in the US for USD$17. But I was told last week that Sephora in US no longer carry Mario Badescu… Fortunately, I can still find it online from BeautyBay.com for about HK$114 with free international delivery from UK. Otherwise Sephora Singapore still carries it for SGD$68 (last saw it on 8 March 2014).

I have yet to try out the Kate Somerville version called EradiKate selling in Hong Kong for HK$295. Heard its pretty similar. 🙂
