So! I have jumped on the DRx skincare regime as well! I have heard a lot about the brand from my friends and fellow bloggers, all positiveness (!), so naturally I was very tempted to try it out for myself. I mean, who doesn't want flawless, porcelain and crystal clear skin? The journey to perfect skin is long and far but I am not giving up any means there is to achieve that. I also wish that one day I can stride down Orchard Road with enough confidence to have no makeup on my face.

FInally, the day for my appointment at DRx Clinic arrived!

I love the spacious, clean, white waiting area that was full of chatters.
It was all very casual, nothing serious like what you would encounter in some clinics.

After my consultation with Dr David Ng
I was ushered to the "photography room" to have my 'Before' picture taken.

And then I was given an introduction by a nurse 
on the products that I will be bringing home and how to use them. 
It was all very confusing initially since I was still new to the brand 
but after a day, I remembered all the steps. 
Easy peasy!

A peek into my box of goodies

All that I'm using on my face now!
Scroll down for more detailed shots :)

Pretty self-explanatory!
The milk cleanser is a make-up remover for face. 
For eyes, I'm still using Biore's jelly remover.

Ahhh, this awesome product, the Comedone Formula, 
reduces the appearance of blackheads, whiteheads and blemishes!
I was advised to apply on my oily t-zone but it seems to be a little drying 
so I only apply on my forehead at night since it's not that oily!
But on my nose day and night since that's blackheads' favourite place to be.
Recently, I also started applying a very thin layer on my cheeks
because my cheeks are one of the places which shine at the end of the day.

The X Cream is great for pigmentation and dark circles 
so I apply religiously on my under eye and this little birthmark on the left of my chin!

Here's a picture of me barefaced to better illustrate.
This was taken after my skincare regime and one day after I started using DRx products.
I was truly amazed because the darkness that has been haunting my under eye seems visibly reduced!!
Will keep you updated about my birthmark!

Max C!
One of their star products!

Let me quote their product description:
"Max-C is a potent anti-oxidant formula based on the highest possible 
stable concentration of Vitamin C. 
It counteracts free radicals, encourages collagen and elastic production 
to control the adverse effects of photo-damage, 
including wrinkling, sagging and other symptoms of premature skin aging."

Tell me, how yummy (in skin food context) does that sound already?!
So glad I was prescribed this!

I really love the Hydrator aka moisturiser!
Skin instantly feels smooth, soft and supple after application!
Definitely one of my favourite products.

For nighttime use to reduce appearance of fine lines and uneven skin texture

And lastly, sunscreen and Anti-Blemish Mask for the oily areas and pimples.

DRx products are very easily absorbed (in a matter of seconds) and when I am done with all the steps, my skin feels incredibly supple on touch and it has never felt this way before!
I may look oily after having all that products on my face but in all honesty, it doesn't feel oily at all! You know how some moisturiser and sunscreen bring about the oily-kinda-heavy texture on your skin?
DRx products don't that's why I love them!

I have been using the products day and night religiously for almost 3 weeks now (even when I was on holiday!) and my skin appears softer and smoother. It is not dry even though I was advised to apply a thin layer of each product on my skin anddddd my makeup glides on smoothly and very easily!

I'm so thankful to be introduced to DRx and I will keep you updated on my progress here ok?

Till then, enjoy the last days of 2013 and may you be filled with love and joy in 2014.

All things jolly and pretty

Hi guys!
Sorry I have been a little too busy lately to blog. As we speak now, I have to be in the airport 12 hours later and I haven't even started coordinating my outfits for my trip to Ho Chi Minh city. I have been so tired living everyday to the fullest. Not that I'm complaining because life in December is always the awesomest.

Oh yes, about the giveaway, I haven't picked the winners yet, but I will, when I get back from HCMC okay!

A little update about life...

I'm rarely so made up but this was for a shoot right after I got back from Phuket last week. It's probably due to the tan I got from the holiday because the makeup artist used a lot of bronzer on me. I have always thought bronzer looks better on girls with healthy sun kissed skin. I want to go back to being porcelain :( But the makeup skill was damn power - I've never looked this good in my life hahaha.

Ignore my hairy arms. H got me a vintage Rolex for Christmas. I really don't need an expensive watch because watches are just accessories to me but there's no way around this man when he's set his mind on something. Not my money. Shrugs.

Our annual Christmas meet-up at Jasmine's! Cannot wait for Chinese New Year's at Debra's already! :)

Got my nails done at Polished and I love the happy colours of this set! The vibrant hues on my heft hand are like the warm colour tones.

And on my right is for the cool tones! So girly, so fun, I love this set! Appointments are already filling up fast for Lunar New Year so call and get a slot quick! I've already gotten mine on the 24th! ;)

Breakfast by the pool :)

Outfit for dinner at Patong.

This was at Maya Bay! :)

Rainbow ice-cream under the multicolored umbrellas on a scorching day.

#OOTD: Clearing backlog + Wedding rants

Tuesday, 10 December 2013

Thank you everyone for the response for the giveaway (ends 17th Dec, you can still participate)! I didn't expect it and I had an interesting time reading through all your comments. Surprisingly, 95% of you would like to read more about my wedding preparations! Hahaha WHY?! To be honest, we have nothing much to plan (I think?) because we bought a bridal package so everything is more or less settled. We have booked a hotel ballroom, decided on the actual day photographer and videographer and that's about it! Right?(???) I don't know 'cause it's our first time getting married. Hahaha! Oh and my friend's baking for my wedding! YAY! I will share about the specific details when the wedding is over okay?

The question that remains is - should I custom make my gown(s) or not?!??? It only takes 2 months to make a gown so I still have a couple of months to decide. And the other question is -  when will I stop being lazy and start toning up my body?!???? Pre-wedding photo shoot is in February so we can't gorge ourselves silly over Chinese New Year. DISCIPLINE.

Fellow future bride-to-bes and married ladies, if there's anything to note, please share with me! Please, please, pretty please?? :*)
