Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream & Intense Hydration

Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream and Ultra Facial Cream Intense Hydration are two of the products which I have tested recently. Being in a humid country gives my skin constant stress and make it ultra dry. They have been tried and tested in the hottest city of Arizona, on swimmers as well as across the frozen sea ice of the North Pole!

Personally, I would prefer the texture of the Ultra Facial Cream Intense Hydration. The key ingredient Enriched Hyaluronic Acid provides intense hydration for the skin. It glides on smoothly and doesn’t feel heavy as it does not contain any waxes or butters. The velvety cream is weightless and leaves the skin hydrated for 24 hours. Also in the cream is the Refined Apricot Oil, an ingredient highly compatible with skin that helps condition and soften the skin to reduce visible dryness and flakiness.

If you are unsure, you will be glad to know that Kiehl’s has a “Try Before You Buy” Sampling Philosophy. Don’t be shy to ask for samples at their stores, their customers’ representatives will always be glad to share and provide professional consultation for their customers.

The Ultra Facial Cream and Ultra Facial Cream Intense Hydration retails at S$48 and S$51 respectively.

Maneki Neko Nails by Niu Nails

Did my CNY nails at Niu Nails again! Manicure is a must-do during CNY. Ladies make their appointments months in advance so that they can look pretty and presentable for the new year :)

There was a craze for fortune cat designs and I decided to get it too! Fortune cat (maneki-neko in Japanese) is a common Japanese figurine usually made of ceramic in modern times, which is often believed to bring good luck to the owner. Oddly, I won in blackjack when I had these nails. Not sure if it is a coincidence haha!

Drawing a black maneki-neko!

Black and white maneki-neko on the thumbs.

I chose a nude base color so that it will look natural when my nails grow out. The tip is colored with hot pink and gold strips to make it more outstanding.

A humble corner for services.

My Experience at Updog Studio

It has been awhile since I updated on my progress of the yoga lessons with Updog Studio. Been extremely busy with work but yeah, I know it’s not an excuse. :P

BFF and I participated in the Yoga for Runners sometime back and we were looking forward to it. It seems an easy feat but it wasn’t. It was a back to back training that consists of running and yoga. Though strenous, we love every bit of the workshop cos it really pushed us to the limit. The instructor was patient though and even encouraged us to do better.

Mandatory maggi goreng meal and heart pose at every lesson. :)

So far, we have tried Hot 26, Hot Core and Hot Stretch classes. The great thing about yoga is that it relaxes your mind and improves your flexibility. Hot Core is my favorite out of the three as it helps to build up your core muscles.

Yoga is extremely fun when you do it with your best friend as you encourage each other to do better! It feels extremely shiok when we improve as we go and makes me less stressed after a hard day’s work.

Follow Updog Studio’s Facebook page to get more updates as they conduct workshops quite frequently.
