SSparkle Glam: Giveaway, & Pre-Mum's Day Special


Kiehl's has a new series of products! And I was lucky enough to be one of those invited for their exclusive intimate bloggers' event!

Making me feel special by hand making their invites! 

So what's it all about? Basically, they have come up with an extended range for their Dermatologist Solutions products - Clearly Corrective™.

We all know the goodness of Vitamin C. Protection from UV radiation, DNA repair of damaged & cancerous skin cells, aids in skin exfoliation, stimulation of collagen production thus lessening fine lines and wrinkles, as well as regulation of melanin production - all to give you that healthy, fair-skinned glow.

Kiehl's, the brand which started as an apothecary with a history dating back to 1851 (that's 161 years!!!) has gone one step further in their research, introduces their ACTIVATED C!

  • Rapid delivery of a unique anti-melanin trifecta. Activated C not only prevents the production of tyrosinase, the enzyme essential for melanin production, it also slows down the transfer of melanin to surrounding keratinocytes and swiftly disrupts existing ‘clusters’ that have yet to migrate to skin’s superficial layers. 
  • Highly stabilized, concentrated, completely clear formula. Activated C has a small molecular structure that penetrates skin efficiently and quickly. And unlike classic vitamin C, it’s 100 hundred percent bio-available and doesn’t require an enzymatic process to become activated, allowing it to ward off oxidation and remain potent. 
Oooooo~~~~that means it works a lot faster, meaning I can get fairer sooner! YAY!!! 
Plus, it won't oxidize! Wait, you mean my other Vitamin C products do!?? O.O *worried*

Here is the full range of the Clearly Corrective™ Series:

 And yup! This is their Star Product! I am a whitening freak, and the fact that I am no longer as fair as I used to be has me forever in search of a good whitening solution, especially for my freckles.

Yeah I know, dry skin that needs good hydration, freckles and tanned skin resulting from filming and wanting to be fair again, fine lines needed to be gotten rid of, wants my face smaller, yada yada...the list goes on... Lol~ 


 Theme was white, and only after I was dressed up was I reminded that the theme was white, so I ran back to my room & threw on this lab-coat lookalike thing. Fashion faux pas of the day. Lol~

Star of the day~

 Explaining to me how to best use the products in sequence.

 The last step is of course sunscreen! =D
(Picture not shown above as the sunscreen is the normal range & not Clearly Corrective™.)

Towards the end of the event I got fed up with my "lab coat" and took it off. Lol~ 
Because I humsup, want a nice picture with one of the pretty Kiehl's boys - James~ 
*stop salivating already Silver!*

Yeah, he's my type. 
NO LA KIDDING LA~~~ *nervous laugh*

Eh hem *wipes drool*, okay next...

Then the beautiful twins Hayley & Jayley came! 

With the new addition to their family - Bui Bui, the cutest Pomeranian puppy ever!!!!!

 So innocent-looking OMG *melt*

They say dogs resemble their owners, just like how people tell me Alton looks like me. I take it as a compliment because Alton is a good-looking dog. 

And I really really think that you can tell this cutie belongs to the Woo twins - fair-skinned, innocent-looking, with a slight smile to its face like how they always wear their smiles!!!

The twins, Nuffies, me & Bui Bui!

Really, it's not rocket Science. What it takes though, is plenty of patience for experimenting.

How I usually wear this outfit.

Just a boring black tank, spiced up with a hat, bangles, and that's probably about it.

I sent this picture to my EP for approval for a shoot and he was like "Got any other top to go with the green cardi?"

So I spent the next 1 hour flipping through and changing in and out of different combinations.

Tadah! Tank top changed!

Then I found a super lao lao grey singlet top that I stopped wearing because it would just rest below the boobs. Defeats the purpose of wearing anything la. -.-"

I threw it on over the tank.

For some reason this look can work!
Though it still looks empty...

Throw in an interesting belt. HA! The look's coming together!

Like I said, don't be afraid to experiment. This is with a different belt. Nah~ Fail~

Play with your accessories for added effect. 

Spend a Sunday or something just going through your wardrobe, trying together things in combinations you've never done before. You'll be surprised at what you can put together~

I changed a cardi, and swapped the jeans for leggings and grey shorts.

Belts, necklaces...earrings. Have fun! You're home, so no one's going to see what the hell you're trying to do, and no one will laugh if you put together an outfit that will have ONLY you frowning upon. 

Yeah I know~ The things I get up to at home. Now you know how I spend some of my free time. Lol~
Take pictures of combos that work. This way when you're up late and panicking because you gotta dress up for something, just refer to the pictures and you're settled! =D



 Yeah I know Mother's Day is like in May, but hey, CNY feels like it's just over? Or Valentine's Day? And before you know it, Mum's Day will be here and you'll be walking around town not knowing what to get her.

So before that happens, I got good stuff to share with you! 

You know I wrote about the Time Curator series some time ago right? Yup for those who are unfamiliar with the Time Curator Series by Hankook Cosmetics, it's basically skincare with Botox in it. Well technically speaking it's Argirilene which is a Botox alternative but it works the same way. And the best part? You don't have to inject it, it erases lines, your face will look slimmer and firmer. If you've already had jabs done, this line of skincare prolongs the effects.  

Sounds too good to be true? You haven't heard the best part - it's cheaper than Botox jabs, and a set can last you 9 months. (Botox can last you frm 3-6 months.)

MORE Good news! Hankook Cosmetics has come up with (yet another) Promotion! And this is a Pre-Mother's Day Special! I'm sure there will be one for Mum's Day but what I'm also sure of is this offer will be much better. ^.^

You guys have any idea how much this thing originally costs? Let me break it down for you okay?

Time Curator Toner: $158
Time Curator Emulsion: $164
Time Curator Eye Cream: $203

Total = $158 + $164 + $203 => $525

The Pre-Mother's Day Special entitles you to a 20% discount off this whole set, making it only $420. 
What's more, you get to have the Time Curator Night Cream (worth $213) & the 1 Ampoule & Eyes Essence Mask (worth $59.70), FREE~!!!! 

THEN THEN THEN!!! (Pardon my excitement because I'm so glad my readers get to enjoy this!!!!)

to enjoy ANOTHER 30% OFF the whole deal!!!!!!!!!!

So in total, you only pay $294 for the Time Curator Toner, Emulsion, Eye Cream, Night Cream & 1 Ampoule & Eyes Essence Mask, which would originally cost $797.70!!!!

Now, any good product needs a special set of instructions on the best way to use it for best results. You've paid good money for the Time Curators (or you are going to), and I thought it'd be a good idea to teach you guys the best way to use them for maximum efficacy. I actually met up with the consultants behind Hankook Cosmetics and had them teach me exactly how to use what, and I am going to share them with you.

It's an intimate sharing session, totally informal, and I welcome you to bring your Mums and Aunties along. Apart from getting to try and learning how to use the stuff, you will also be able to bring samples home to try them out if you're still not convinced at the end of the session! Though I'm pretty sure you'll be as bought over as I am by then. ;)

You'll also be able to purchase the full set at the special price of $294 at the end of the session, and get your items on the spot. (Usually you'd have to wait up to a week for delivery!)

I really want your Mums to come along with you. Make them feel beautiful even before this Mother's Day comes. ^.^

Okay, one more reason to come for this sharing session. They are going to launch a REALLY AMAZING thing which is going to make your face smaller and the will make the Time Curator work wonders. 

I'm going to show you a very tak-glam picture of me, but I don't care because I'm just so excited about the results:

I used a face-slimming product on one side of my face. Can you tell which side? 

In this picture I am not purposely smiling in a crooked one-sided senget manner okay. I used the item on the right side of my face (which is the left side of the picture), and the right side IMMEDIATELY BECAME SMALLER!!!!!!!!!!!! In less than 2 minutes!!!!!! (Actually probably less than 1!)

You noticed that the right side of my face is not as fleshy as the left side, around the jaw area? Mint tried it too and left it like that with only one side done. Half a day later her face still looks smaller on the side she did! Meaning to say the results actually LAST!!!!!!!!!!!

Yeah, this mystery product is going to be revealed at the sharing session. So DO COME!!! I PROMISE you it's going to be exciting! You get to try this mystery product too! ;)

What are you waiting for? Sign up ALREADY!!!!
And remember to bring your Mummy/Auntie/Granny dearest! 

Pssstt~~~ If your fathers/boyfriends are vain and are interested in looking young too include them! ;)

I look forward to seeing you guys!
