Lola Skye Collection with ZALORA

Having to wear office wear from Monday to Friday means that I would crave for casual and sweet girly, carefree style over the weekends. Don't we all just want to let our hair down and unwind and relax in style? It's really nice to know that Lola Skye Collection at ZALORA fits what I am looking for.


Looking at the banner on the site and I already fallen in love with this brand. It looks dreamy and girly! Here are some of my personal recommendations from Lola Skye Collection!

If you are looking for that simple black dress that can bring you to a nice date with significant other followed by a romantic dinner, why not consider this black lace insert dress? The lace just gives this simple black dress a subtle sexiness.

Girly dresses is not your thing? How about a jacket and jogger? Coupled with a helmet, you will be all ready to hop on a bike and ride down the road and not worry about anything in the world.


Maxi dresses look so relaxing and comfortable, don't they? I can already imagine walking down the beach in this maxi dress!

My personal recommendations above are just some teasers on what you can expect from Lola Skye Collection. If you head over to the collection available to ZALORA, you can see other designs ranging from tops to bottoms with different texture such as knits and laces. I am sure something will be able to catch your eye.

Burberry Light Glow Blush in Blossom

It has been a while since I last reviewed a product and today’s review is not one of those in a new collection that is screaming ‘COLLECT ME’. It happen to be a blush that I have been thinking for a while but never got down to purchasing it. It is none other than Burberry Light Glow Blush in Blossom.

I’m sure many beauty fanatics out there are very familiar with the buttery smooth texture of Burberry Beauty blushes and Blossom is no exception. Do you know that if you were to purchase Blossom blush now, it actually look more pinkish than the original one? Yes, this is true…….. The SA was telling me that the original Blossom blush looks more orangey while the new batch of Blossom look more pinkish. By looking at the tester Blossom blush at the counter vs the new Blossom blush, it certainly is the case. It would be nice if I am able to do the swatch compare side by side.


Looking at the swatch of Blossom blush, it is a beautiful coral pink shade which is quite pigmented. A gentle tap of my MAC 129 brush on the pan and I already manage to pick up a fair bit of product. I didn’t even have to re-apply the blush on my cheeks to make it stand out stronger!

For reference, I have included the swatches of my other Burberry Light Glow blushes in the swatch below. Missing in action is Earthly, which for some reason I forgot to include it in, haha. Blossom certainly looks like a lighter version of Coral Pink, in my opinion.

At $61 per pan, Burberry Beauty blush are worthy investment in my opinion, both in terms of texture and quality/ Most beauty fanatics I know have at least a few of them. You can never stop at 1!

Review of Pentaxyl™

It has been a a while since I went about reviewing anything and today I finally got down to reviewing a new product which is my absolute new love. This is none other than Pentaxyl™!!

Many would be asking, what is this product???


Extracted from site:-

Pentaxyl is a proprietary blend of herbal extracts and the breakthrough formulas of the Matrixyl® Complex and Argireline, which reduce the appearance of wrinkles and furrows, help skin look thicker and firmer, and gives the skin a youthful glow. Pentaxyl has harnessed the age-fighting power of "bio-peptide" technology, with three age-fighting bio-peptides (1) Pamitoyl-Pentapeptide-3 (Matrixyl) (2) Palmitoyl Oligopeptide (3) Acetyl Hexapeptide-3 (Argireline). Peptides are a low molecular weight amino acid group that are building blocks of proteins that make up plants and animals. Palmitoyl_Pentapeptide-3 was discovered at National Institute of Health.

Pentaxyl may temporarily reduce the appearance of stretch marks. Skin will take on a more youthful appearance. While nothing can rewind time, Pentaxyl has been shown to support a beautiful, resilient, flawless look by fighting against the visible signs of ageing.

Benefits:-

  • Works on both the epidermis and the dermis
  • Contains three peptide formulas
  • Reduces the appearance of wrinkles and furrows (especially in the brow, forehead and eye areas)
  • Promotes the look of skin firmness and thickness
  • Reduces skin discolourations and increases hydration
  • Supports smooth skin texture and colour
  • Helps minimise the appearance of stretch marks
Pentaxyl™ is a light-weight non greasy cream and I used a pea-size for my whole face (as I have combination skin and would like to go easy initially).

We are encourage to use circular motion to massage in Pentaxyl™ into our skin to allow the cream to be properly absorbed by the skin as well as promote blood circulation. I love the minty after-feel after applying Pentaxyl™!
Top to bottom: Gently massaging into skin, Pentaxyl™ being absorbed into skin

So you might be wondering now, what happen to me that made me love this product??? Let's take a look at my naked face taken in Dec 2014, shall we?

You can see from the picture above that I have deep laugh line on the right side of my face. And for whatever reason, it is more obvious and deeper than my left face. So I decided to try Pentaxyl™ on my right laugh line, and massaging any residue into the rest of the face.

I kept to my usual skincare routine of cleansing, toning and moisturising. Without changing any products in my skincare regime, I only added Pentaxyl™ to apply after the toner and before moisturiser. As a start, I experience a few pimples popping out but they went off after a week and I haven't had any breakouts after which. I interpreted this as my skin trying to get used to the new product.

Even though it is encouraged to use Pentaxyl™ for both day and night, I decided to just stick with applying Pentaxyl™ during the night for my skin to get more norishment and repair through the night.

Honestly it did not occur to me to see obvious effects as I believe skincare products always need time to work their magic. But yesterday I noticed my laugh lines on the right face seem to be looking lighter and quickly asked my hubby for confirmation. He agreed!!! I decided to take a picture again and do a side by side comparison below.

From the picture above, I can see that my right laugh line is indeed lighter!!! I am really glad because I have been wondering what I can do to lighten these lines for the longest time, especially when I am getting older everyday. What makes me so convinced that Pentaxyl™ works is because the improvement can be seen over a period of 1 month and me only applying it during the night (instead of both day and night).

In case you are wondering Pentaxyl™ must be super expensive to be effective, you will be pleasantly surprised that it is only $106.75 for 118ml. This is totally affordable in today's market considering the price of another similar product from Strivectin-SD is already double!

I purchased this wonderful product from this site, which you can go check it out. However, should you want to be a money savvy shopper to get some cashback from your purchase, do drop me a comment with your email address.

You have finally reach the end of my review post and I hope Pentaxyl™ is able to help you like how it helped me!

American Apparel on ZALORA

For a number of years, the fashion industry in Singapore has been evolving with the number of overseas apparel companies been made available locally. I still recall during my teens, ESPRIT and Levi's were the 'in' brands because they are internationally recognised apparel companies. Over the years, we see more and more of such companies entering the shore of Singapore such as GAP, H&M etc. This has certainly bring Singapore's fashion industry to the next level and at the same time stimulating local companies and designers to bring local names to the higher heights.

Today, I am very excited to share that another internationally known brand has reached the shore of Singapore and that is none other than American Apparel on ZALORA! I still recall the last time I had to purchase American Apparel by participating in a spree which is totally unnecessary now. Woohoo!!!!!

American Apparel is an american apparel manufacturer, distributor and retailer based in Los Angeles, California. They offer a wide variety of men and women apparel, ranging from casual to formal. Most importantly, the prices are affordable which is good news for our pockets!


For fans of American Apparel, you will be glad to know that some of your favourite items could be on sale now. Do we need more reason why we need to make that purchase already? :)

I'm really glad that American Apparel is available on ZALORA which makes shopping so much easier and fuss-free for consumers in Singapore. All you need to do is to sit in front of your computer, click and add items to your shopping cart and delivery will be made to your indicated address for free as long as your purchase is above $40.
