Hi lovelies,

In today's post, I will be sharing my review for Project B's Collagen peptide.
Project B - B for Bare /bɛː/ is a health supplement company based in Asia that emphasizes on being Bare and transparent in their product development process.

Project B Hydrolyzed Biomarine Collagen Peptide 5,000mg is concentrated with 10 extracts under the trademark proprietary blend of COLL10+. This product utilizes high quality collagen peptide imported from Italy and the product formula is developed by researcher Dr Iko for over 26 months and further endorsed by a few pharmacists.


This product comes in a powder formula to be dissolved in water or taken with food or yogurt.
Due to the low molecular weight of this collagen, studies have shown as high as 95% reaches the circulation system and absorption is observed within hours of consumption, allowing it to reach the deep skin cell layers.  

I have tried different collagen products available in the market and comparing between the liquid and powder formulas, liquid formula is easier to consume but tends to be much sweeter whereas powder formula would require time to dissolve the powder completely but it also gives me flexibility to decide how much collagen I would like to consume and how I would like to pair it with my food/meal.


I have been consuming this collagen for close to 2 months, taking 2 tablespoons every morning. For this collagen, it takes a while to be fully dissolved and when not stirred thoroughly, small clumps will happen. There is a slight fishy smell when just off the tin but I am glad that the smell is quite light and after it's dissolved in water, the smell reduces and it is easy to be consumed. I have seem the improvement to my skin condition after consumption of this collagen. Previously, I have dry skin and my face tends to produce oil to keep my skin hydrated but after consuming this collagen, I am glad to see the improvement in hydration level of the skin on my face and body and my skin feels smoother. I am looking forward to the slowing down and reversing of skin ageing results with this product. 


I love taking this collagen with the Project B 100% Natural Fruit Booster. Their fruit boosters are imported from Italy. The fruits are hand-picked in one of the largest fruit-growing area in Europe, delivering a natural and excellent taste and nutritional profile. This series of fruit boosters are 100% natural with preservatives free, no added sugar, sweetener or coloring, to keep the fruit juices in their most natural and nutritious form.

 



For passion fruit juice powder, it is a blend of sweetness with a tinge of sour, an addictive taste which I love. For a sweeter taste, I love their mixed berries juice powder which I could taste the flavour of real berries.

Hi lovelies,

Chinese New Year is just around the corner! It is the time for celebration, house visiting, feasting, indulgence and perhaps, physical rest for some.

In the chinese culture, Chinese New Year is not complete without some tasty traditional goodies, am I right? Having CNY goodies at home is a common practice and childhood memory for many Chinese families in Singapore. 

Lately, I tasted a brand that sells homemade CNY goodies and would like to share about their CNY goodies. 


First up is their Golden Pillow Pineapple Tarts. 


In the chinese culture, pineapple tart is a must have as it represents prosperity and wealth. The golden pillow shape is also a representation of gold bar which makes this an auspicious CNY goody to have. In terms of taste, this pineapple tart is highly raved in my family and everyone loves it. It has a soft buttery crust that melts in the mouth. The filling is made of real pineapple fruit and of appropriate level of sweetness that made us unable to stop at one. This is just too tasty and addictive! Highly recommended!

My rating: 4.5/5


Next, is their Hae Bee Hiam Sambal Prawn Roll (虾米条).


Prawns and shrimps in the chinese culture represents smiles and of a good year ahead.
In Singapore, we like our prawn roll a little spicy and this prawn roll from Poon Confectionery is made with the right level of spiciness. Their prawn roll is flavourful and the slight spiciness kicks in afterwards but it is manageable and soon you will find yourself reaching for the next piece after the other. Another fantastic and tasty CNY goody!

Mr rating: 4.5/5

This is their Green Pea Cookie (青豆饼).


Green pea represents the season of harvest and a prosperous new year. It being green in colour also represents ever youth and beauty. Green pea cookie is a traditional goody but not everyone will have for CNY as it is not easy to get good tasting green pea cookie in the market. However, from Poon Confectionery, we are surprised by the natural sweetness and crunchiness from the Green peas together with the buttery cookie and the light salty taste, creating a perfect blend of taste in the mouth yet without the artificial taste or extreme sugar added sweetness. This Green Pea cookie is surely worth getting.

My rating: 4/5

Lastly, this is their Almond Cookies (杏仁酥饼)


I am not sure what almond represents in the chinese culture but if it is classified under nuts, it would represent the abundance of offspring. I do not remember our family having almond cookies for CNY but I guess almond is starting to be a well-accepted CNY goody due to its natural sweet flavour and the crunchy texture it adds to the cookie. Anyways, I love the buttery taste of this cookie together with the chunks of almond bits in it, a very tasty cookie in overall.

My rating: 4/5

If you are interested to find out more about the other CNY goodies offered by Poon Confectionery or even taste their CNY goodies before purchasing, you can check out their website: https://cnydelivery.com/

Free tasting is available.

Wishing everyone a year of good health, abundant of wealth and lots of happiness!
Love,
Yvonne

Dear lovelies,

December is the time of the year when all of us want a refreshing look for the year-end celebrations and to start the new year afresh. I went for my facial at J. Studios to have a go at their signature oxygen deep cleansing facial.

J. Studios is conveniently located in the central, along Haji Lane.


Upon arrival, I was soon led to their upper level where their facial rooms are located.



Getting ready and excited for the transformation facial!


I had some light makeup on my face but before the removal of my makeup, the treatment began with a shoulder massage with the scent of my choice massage oil. There were Rose, Orange, Lavender and Chamomile scented massage oils for selection. 


The skilful massage and the soothing scent from the massage oil successfully made me feel relaxed and at ease. After the massage, the excess massage oil were wiped away with a warm towel before my therapist began the double cleansing on my face.

The double cleansing was done with Micellar water and Gel cleanser with ingredients gentle and suitable for sensitive skin. Next, an enzyme cleanser was used to cleanse away dead skin cells.


My skin looked well-cleansed and ready for the much anticipated oxygen spray.


Light extraction was first done to clear some clogged pores followed by the oxygen spray.


The Oxygen spray helped to deliver oxygen, moisturizer, vitamins, and antioxidants to the skin, replenishing the skin's nutrients through the use of an airbrush. The pressure and serum helped to deep cleanse and plump the skin, minimizing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, while increasing blood circulation to boosting collagen production. The treatment also provided effective acne clearance for troubled skin, leaving the skin clean, smooth and radiant.

After the skin had been thoroughly cleansed, serum in the texture of a cooling gel was applied to my skin and the cold ultrasonic machine was used for purifying, nourishing and to heighten my skin's absorption of the nutrients.


A customized face mask was applied to the skin based on my skin's condition. 
This mask worked to lock in the moisture and to give the skin additional hydration boost.


At the last step of this facial, toner, soothing and calming moisturiser and sunblock were applied to the skin.

Other than facials, J. Studios also provided other pampering services at their well decorated and cozy Haji Lane outlet.

Dear lovelies,

Recently, I had the privilege to dine at Gu Ma Jia and tasted their auspicious Chinese New Year reunion dinner set.

Gu Ma Jia has 4 sets of Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner to suit different budgets and taste buds ranging from $398++ to $799++. For diner who wants to order ala carte dishes, their special Chinese New Year dishes are available for add-ons.


In the chinese culture, we begin the new year with blessings of fortune and prosperity with Yu Sheng. 
We had the Prosperity ‘Yu Sheng’ (Gui Fei Abalone) 鸿运发财鱼生(贵妃鲍) with advance tossing and spoken blessings into 2019. May everyone have a smooth-sailing 2019!


This Yu Sheng had a wide variety of fresh ingredients and every mouth of it tasted delicious and refreshing on the palate. I went for double serving of it, really tasty and unforgettable! I love it! 

The next Chinese New Year dish we had was the Lobster Cold Platter 龙虾拼盘 which consisted of Smoked Duck, Mixed Sauce Pacific Clam, Gu Ma Bean Curd, Salad Lobster.


I highly recommend this dish! Full marks for both presentation and taste, worthy of all the calories. Every dish on this platter contributed to a different taste on the tastebuds yet marvelous in combination. The Gu Ma bean curd is no ordinary fried bean curd with its crispy exterior and special recipe delightful taste in the interior. The pacific clam, salad lobster and smoked duck were equally fresh and palatable. Another of my favourite dish!

Another Chinese New Year dish at Gu Ma Jia is the Lychee Sweet & Sour Grouper 荔枝酸甜石斑鱼.


This is a convenient dish to consume as the bones had been removed and the fish meat comes in cubes. The tangy sweet and sour sauce is a good match with the fresh and tender fish meat.


The next special and unique dish we had at Gu Ma Jia was their Kyoto Pork Ribs 京都排骨.


This dish comes with real flame for a HUAT 2019! Pork ribs served in aluminum foil to retain the juiciness of the ribs. An exquisitely delectable dish with tender pork meat that detach from the bone easily.

We also had the signature Gu Ma Jia Award Winning Assam Fish Head 亚叁鱼头.


This signature dish is a hot favourite and a must-try for every customer. Fresh fish head complemented with Gu Ma Jia’s exclusive spicy and sour Assam blend gravy. The Assam gravy accentuates the freshness of the fish and goes well with white rice. Love it!

 This is Gu Ma Jia's special Kai Lan 2 Styles (Yuan Yang) 鸳鸯芥兰.


This dish features Kai Lan vegetables cooked in two styles, blanched and fried. Crispy Kai Lan leaves are deep-fried to perfection which tasted like seaweed, coupled with thick and crunchy Kai Lan stems.

One of the bestsellers at Gu Ma Jia is their Claypot Wine Chicken with Ginger & Sesame Oil 姜丝麻油酒鸡.


I always love having this dish whenever I dine at Gu Ma Jia as I love the huge chucks of tender chicken with fragrant ginger and sesame oil. It is a nutritious, homely dish that is not too oily nor salty.

A surprisingly tasty dish at Gu Ma Jia is their Crispy Bean-Jal 豆茄双脆.


No one would have expected this mock meat dish to be made with brinjal. A perfect combination of crispy fried brinjal and French beans made this a delicious vegetable dish. The brinjal is lightly tossed in sweet marmite sauce and then fried with French beans to create this delightful combination.

Last but not least, for dessert, we had the Double Boiled Peach Gum with Red Dates 冰糖红枣炖桃胶.


Peach gum has been a popular ingredient for boosting of collagen and anti-ageing ingredient for both women and men. I am surprise by the generous amount of peach gum in this dessert! This delicacy is a highly recommend dish with the appropriate sweetness that is healthy and beneficial in beautifying and nourishing the skin. 

Signing off with our group photo and a shot with owner Gu Ma who is always so jovial and welcoming.

Dear lovelies,

A'kin, the natural Australian skincare launched 2 gift sets for this Christmas season.

The first set is the Moisture Rich Miracle Facial Trio Skincare set (S$69.90) with an infusion of Rose and certified Rosehip oil to make the skin more moisturised than ever. 
This set consists of 
Nourishing Cream Cleanser & Toner 140ml, 
Rosehip Oil Facial Moisturiser 150ml (New & Seasonal only), 
Rose Mist Toner 150ml (New & Seasonal only), 
100% Pure Cotton Muslin Cloth.

The second set is the Hydrating Facial Trio Skincare set (S$51.90) packed full of Organic Coconut Water and Green Tea for an ultimate skin hydration.
This set includes of
Cleansing Micellar Water 150ml,
Hydrating Facial Moisturiser 150ml (New & Seasonal only)
Hydrating Mist Toner 150ml.

In this post, I will be sharing my thoughts about the A'kin moisture rich miracle facial trio skincare. This skincare range is best for people with dry and sensitive skin and it is crafted without parabens, sulfates, artificial colours or fragrances.



The first product to use in this range is the Cream Cleanser and Toner. 
It is enriched with Rose, Geranium, Shea Butter and Sesame Oil to gently lift away make-up and impurities leaving skin nourished, radiant and hydrated.


I love the creamy texture of this product, it is so smooth and it glides easily over the skin, so a small amount (one pump) is sufficient to cover the whole face. The cream feels so luxurious on the skin and it gently melts off makeup (not for waterproof makeup) yet not stripping the skin of its natural moisture. Furthermore, it is infused with Witch Hazel to cleanse and tone the skin in one step, making it a convenient cleanser to use on lazy days when I have light makeup on and want a fuss-free cleansing procedure. 

Next, I will apply the Facial Moisturiser on my cleansed skin. It is infused with Organic Rosehip oil to keep skin looking hydrated, moisture rich and soft.


The texture of this moisturiser is between a cream and lotion and I only need a pearl size of this moisturiser for my whole face. Due to it's slightly creamier texture, I had to apply the moisturiser in circular motions for it to be completely absorbed into my skin. Once absorbed, the moisturiser leaves no greasy or sticky feeling and my skin appears so much softer and smoother. The best part of this moisturiser is the lightweight feeling on my skin, it is not pore clogging and it leaves no greasy appearance on the skin.

The last step is the Mist Toner. It is infused with Aloe Vera to instantly soothe and Rose Essence to relax, leaving the skin refreshed and hydrated with every spritz.


I am super in love with the Mist Toner. Due to my dry combination skin, this product works awesomely well for my skin. When sprayed before makeup, it plumps up my skin and minimises the appearance of my pores. I like to use it after my makeup too as it hydrates my skin and gives it a dewy healthy glow.

The photos below shows the appearance of my skin before and after using the skincare. 


This skincare set is definitely a keeper and a worthy Christmas gift for your loved ones.
It is available at Robinsons, Lazada and Shopee.

For more information, visit A'kin on Instagram @akin.sg and Facebook at A'kin Singapore.

Love,
Yvonne

Dear lovelies,

Christmas Wonderland at Gardens by the Bay is back again this year with programmes lined up!
We spent an enjoyable sisters' time admiring the christmas lights and visiting their festive market.



Christmas Wonderland this year is more extensive than last year's, so it involves quite a bit of walking to cover the area but there are also sufficient resting space around the area to rest tired legs or chill under the night sky.


In terms of activities, there are a number of attractions to make this a great place for family with kids and it involves extra spending but the entrance fee is minimal, so it is generally affordable.

Unique gifts and treats are also in store at the Festive Market for all visitors to enjoy while food aficionados can head to ‘Slice of SAVOUR’ to indulge in more exciting culinary offerings.

Festive Market and 'Slice of SAVOUR':

There are a variety of food to fill our hungry stomach at Christmas Wonderland while experiencing the cool night's breeze after the rain.


Visitors can also look forward to free choral performances and Yuletide Sessions featuring a myriad of local talents including Joanna Dong, Rani Singam and Andrew Lim and have a go at the carnival rides and games.

Carnival rides and games:

The main attraction at Christmas Wonderland is definitely their stunning seven-storey high (22 metre) luminarie mirror maze and I cannot resist taking countless of photos of this magnificent structure.

Mirror Maze:






This year there is also a bigger Santa’s Grotto which boasts a mesmerising kinetic light installation from Germany. Step in for insta-worthy festive installations and meet Santa!

Santa's Grotto:



Another highlight is the Singapore’s largest outdoor skating rink specially flown in from Switzerland. However, the size of the skating rink looks more appropriate for kids. I'm more attracted to their Christmas tree and lights instead.

Skating rink:


Another not to be missed is the brand new Garden Rhapsody – The Christmas Special light and sound show at the Supertree Grove where we got to see the beautiful lights dancing to the tune of Christmas songs. Watch the Supertrees come alive with multi-colored illuminations! Must see!

Garden Rhapsody:

After the Garden Rhapsody, there was a short experience of 'snow' in the tropics.

Blizzard:

If you love magic, be sure to catch a spectacular magic show by world-class illusionist Rob Lake, '2018 America's Got Talent' quarter-finalist to experience mind-blowing illusions.

Last but not least, photo-taking with the Christmas lights and that kind of sums up our evening at Christmas Wonderland.


 Admission Ticket Price: 
30 Nov - 6 Dec $4 Online / $6 Onsite
7 Dec - 13 Dec $6 Online / $8 Onsite
14 Dec - 26 Dec $8 Online / $10 Onsite

Love,
Yvonne

Dear ladies,

Some time back, I tried the hair treatment at Bee Choo Ladies. 
I was excited to try their treatment as I heard good reviews about their treatment and I also face hair concerns that I am worried about such as hair loss and slow hair growth.

Read on to understand about the hair treatment procedures and the before and after results of my hair after 4 treatments with them.



Upon stepping in, I was first greeted by an artificial plant wall with the outlet's name on it.


The design of the interior is a feminine Victorian style and the place is spacious and comfortable. 


Before the treatment begins, my scalp was scanned to identify my scalp and hair issues.


The scan showed that my scalp is generally clean with some areas of clogged follicles and some malnutrition strands of hair that grew out thin and fine and such weak strands of hair are most likely to fall off easily.

Now, allow me to share with you the procedures of this treatment.

It first begin with spraying of Ginger wine on my scalp and a head, neck and shoulder massage.


The Ginger wine helps to open the hair follicles and activate the scalp to boost the results of this treatment.

Next, Hair tonic was applied to my scalp to provide nutrients for the hair and Olive oil was applied to the rest of my hair length.
Their Hair tonic is also available for purchase for personal home treatment.


Next step was the application of Hair mask from the root to the full hair length. Their Hair mask was full of Chinese herbs and ingredients that will help boost healthy growth of hair. Their staff was very generous with the hair mask and she would ensure that every section of my hair was completely coated by the hair mask.
Due to the dark colour of the Hair mask, I was told that this mask also acts as a natural hair colouring, giving the hair the dark copper colour. I was informed that they have the Hair mask in white as well for people with bleached hair or who dyed their hair in lighter colour. 


After the Hair mask was applied, the hair was wrapped in plastic and a headband was used to hold the plastic in place while steaming takes place for 30 minutes.


 During the steaming process, a herbal shoulder warmer was placed over my shoulder. During this process, I was too comfortable that I dozed off and the shoulder warm slipped off my shoulder once but the staff was quick to notice and placed the shoulder warmer back for me.

After the steaming process, I was led to the hair washing area for a double wash to remove the hair mask and thoroughly cleanse my scalp followed by hair conditioner to keep my hair soft and smooth.


The last step was to blow my hair semi-dry and due to my hair being dry, they applied a product called Crystal concentrate over my hair length. I really love how light, straight and flowy my hair was after the whole treatment, and my scalp also felt very refreshed and clean.


Bee Choo Ladies have a wide range of hair products consisting of Shampoo, Conditioner, Tonic, Concentrate and many more catered to people of different scalp and hair conditions. It is recommended that the treatment accompany with home care for effective results.


Here's the Before and After of my hair condition and it is noticeable that the hair gap has narrowed. There is a light stain of brown on the scalp due to the Hair mask but it will be gone within 3-4 days of washing.


If you are interested, they have different pricing for different hair length.


You may also find out more about Bee Choo Ladies from their website:

Hi lovelies,

Some time back, I was introduced to ZNIQUE Acne Serum.
It is the 1st All-In-One Acne Serum based on Swiss Expertise, formulated based on natural ingredients to provide a gentle yet effective solution to combat Acne woes.
Clinically proven to reduce bacteria growth as early as 2 hours!




Allow me to share with you some general information about this product and the functions of each active ingredient in this product.


There are different types of acne and the image below shows the general classification of common acne that most people experience. I too, experienced these 4 types of acne. 


This acne serum comes in a tube, which is very small, light and easy to carry along for frequent application of the serum on my breakouts.


I really like how easy it was to apply the serum and its light-weight texture. It can also work its efficacy when applied over makeup. 


Below shows the progress of my skin after trying ZNIQUE acne serum on my skin. I experienced various types of acne when my skin gets irritated due to my sensitive skin condition. It took a period of a month for my acne to heal and I am satisfy with the positive recovery from post-acne pigmentation. ZNIQUE acne serum has a slight cooling sensation when applied to the skin and it feels gentle without causing further redness, plus it works very well in healing inflamed acne too.


ZNIQUE acne serum can be purchased from their website at https://www.zniquesg.com/shop
Each tube retails at $26.

Hope everyone will enjoy using this acne serum and see improvement in your acne condition too!

Love,
Yvonne

Dear lovelies,

78 Alkofelic, a newly opened coffee cocktail bar arrived in Singapore!
The name "Alkofelic" plays with the word "alcoholic" and "coffee". 7 and 8 are favourite numbers of the owners. 

This bar offers a menu of classic and signature alcoholic coffee cocktails, premium coffee brews, a selection of teas and cold-pressed juices, and comfort food.



We tried 2 of their cold-pressed juices; one is a mix of Beetroot, Carrot and Green Apple, and the other a mix of Watermelon, Coconut and Mint.


The Beetroot, Carrot and Green Apple cold-pressed juice is a mix of sweetness from the carrot and sourness from the green apple. If you love a drink with a little sourness, this is the juice you can opt for!

My favourite is the Watermelon, Coconut and Mint cold-pressed juice! A really refreshing juice and the slight minty taste gave a cooling, soothing feel down the throat. The natural sweetness of the watermelon and coconut also pleases my tastebuds. A must-have on a hot weather! 

The bar also offers flavoured popcorns to pair with your drinks instead of the conventional peanuts. How interesting! I love this concept! 

We had dark chocolate popcorns, salted caramel popcorns and butterscotch popcorns. They do have other flavours such as cheese popcorns, you just have to ask them!

Not having our cocktails with an empty stomach, so we had savoury sides to go with our drinks.
We had their Thai Chicken Wrap (S$7.50 each wrap) and Margarita Pizza (S$13.50).


We love the texture of the wrap, so chewy and good, and the sauce made this Thai Chicken Wrap heavenly, but if there were more chucks of chicken it would be perfect!


This Margarita Pizza tasted like Hawaiian pizza but nevertheless, we love the generous amount of cheese and it tasted best when eaten hot.

One of their signature coffee cocktails we had was Romeo's Juliet (S$15).
This cocktail was made with Patron XO, frangelico, baileys and fresh milk.


This cocktail has a strong flavour of baileys and fresh milk with a subtle taste of coffee, a gentle and smooth cocktail that could easily become a lady's favourite drink. I love this!

Sharing some shots of the bartenders in action as they were preparing our next drink.


This cocktail is called the Ripple Stimulant (S$15). 
It is made with Vodka, kahlua and coffee. 


A strong taste of Vodka in this cocktail and I love the vanilla sweetness from the kahlua yet there is still a strong flavour of coffee. This has a stronger alcoholic and coffee punch as compared to Romeo's Juliet.

Following up next, we had Irish Coffee (S$15).
This is a blend of Coffee, Irish Whiskey and Cream.


This cocktail is complex, aromatic, smooth, yet slightly sweet, and I love the fragrance of the coffee in this cocktail. This is a sweet yet masculine drink.

Next, we had the Old Fashioned Coffee (S$15).
This is a blend of Double espresso, bourbon, bitters and brown sugar.


Oh boy, this is starting to get strong for me. This cocktail has a blend of bitter sweetness in taste. The Bourbon is enough to make me go a little light-headed yet the caffeine from the double espresso kicks in to keep me awake. It's a mixed feeling drinking this cocktail but it is definitely for a good drinker. A perfect drink for the man.

Last cocktail we had was Flying Singaporean (S$15).
A blend of Absinthe, XO and coffee.
Absinthe is said to make people see "fairies" hence the name "flying" for this cocktail.

This cocktail is too strong for my preference, the effect of Absinthe kicks in quick for me. I could only take sips of it. But well, there will be people out there who can appreciate this cocktail better than me, right?

To end the day, we had ice-cream to satisfy my sweet-tooth.
It is unbelievable that 78 Alkofelic has ice-cream, but they do!
I'm only satisfied with the chocolate ice-cream as the texture of their ice-cream needs improvement and I am glad that the staff at 78 Alkofelic are acceptable to feedback.

Dear lovelies,

Have you ever been troubled by back acne? Or looking for a solution to improve your back acne condition?

Some time ago, I was introduced to a product called Bio-Piel Petit Ato Body Lotion, which is the best-selling body lotion from Korea, containing nutritive ingredients, specially formulated to target stubborn acne on our body.


Do you know?
One of the keys to a beautiful skin is having a healthy balance of oil and water content in our skin, to enable our skin tissue to do the essentials: to be a barrier, absorber, eliminator and regenerator.

In this product, there is cypress oil extract to sooth sensitive skin and provide relief for the overactive sebum glands that cause the skin to be oily and more prone to acne. Cypress oil extract also contains antiseptic properties to help speed up healing of the skin.
Furthermore, Ceramide NP and hyaluronic acid in this product protect the skin from external irritation and enhance the moisture level in our skin.






The texture of the body lotion is watery and lightweight. It is fast absorbing and does not leave any stickiness on the skin. It is easy to apply and feels comfortable on the skin, which is a great product for Singapore's weather. I love how smooth my skin feels after application and my acne cures quicker than usual after I started using this body lotion.
After usage for a month, I noticed a significant reduction in the formation of acne on my back and some post-acne pigmentation were healing rather quickly as well. I am looking forward to a clearer and smoother back with continual usage of this body lotion!

Direction to apply:
Dry skin thoroughly after shower, dispense an appropriate amount of product and gently apply it evenly over the while body or on areas that feel dry. Apply product in the bathroom right after drying the skin for a longer lasting moisturising results.

Retail information:
JSOOP BIO-Piel Petit Ato Body Lotion (400ml) retails at $59.90 at Guardian, Sasa and online at www.beautycarousel.com.

Thanks for reading!
Love,
Yvonne
