[Beauty Review] Kiss Singapore

a month ago, the authorised dealer of kiss skincare (@kisssingapore) sent over their best selling collagen cream mask. most of you have probably heard about this product via thai beauty bloggers on instagram. i get it. skincare product from thailand, really? it does sounds a little dodgy doesn't it? also, we are so accustomed to using beauty products from korea, japan or france. well hopefully this post would change that perspective, even if its just a little. 

about the product 
certified by the food and drug administration of thailand (TFDA) and good manufacturing practice (GMP), this overnight collagen sleeping mask is made up of 100% all natural product with no trace of steroids or mercury. it is suitable for all skin types including oily and sensitive skin. the mask is formulated with collagen extract, alpha arbutin, vitamin c and natural extracts, diminishing the appearance of pores, supports natural nourishment, exfoliates and addresses impurities. the concentrated collagen in this mask serves as a regenerative agent to renew your skin cells and making you look younger and more vibrant. it restores radiance, clarity and suppleness to skin, minimises the open pores and smoothens your skin. 

based on my experience with the product 
i gave myself a month to use / allow the product to work on my skin, following the recommended usage of twice a week. the picture above was taken after i washed off the sleeping mask, and of course not photoshopped. i would like to highlight that my skin is actually *glowing* and that doesn't happen everyday okay!

the texture is high in viscosity (aka thick), which i'm neutral about. packaging wise, the 30 ml pump container keeps the cream clean and bacteria free. what i really love about the product is that, after washing off the mask my skin feels comparable to porcelain. its incredibly smooth! swear. however in terms of tightening pores or skin whitening i'm not able to comment much because firstly i don't have large pores and secondly, i'm naturally tan. so there you go! i personally would recommend this product because the results look pretty good.

Tux Lux

photos taken by marc

suiting up in a white tuxedo jacket for the le grand and z wedding couture runway show held at chijmes last thursday. wearing the white tux out for an event for the first time, even though i purchased it from H&M two years back and almost wanted to sell it away  yknow the usual i don't know when i should wear it dilemma.

before deciding on this outfit, i wanted to get new clothes just because i was pretty bored with what i have currently but it kinda struck me that i should just work around my wardrobe — saving cost and supporting #slowfashion. on me is mgplabel v neck drape top (always a stunner piece) and aforarcade culottes, that sits nicely on my hips. added a little colour into my overall monochrome outfit with the oliveve penny clutch ℅ shopbop. this duo tone leather number is clutch perfect for attending events or a casual ice cream night out with friends. 

stacking in rings — featuring aloha gaia ℅ ho5hana. i officially love stacking on aloha gaia rings because instead of giving meanings to the rings, the rings already have meanings on its own (as created by daramuscat). totally digging the idea of embodying meanings of love, harmony and wisdom when i head out as it reminds and keeps me humble and courteous towards the people i interact with.

Railay Bay, Krabi Guide

this mini krabi travel guide is curated based on my personal experiences and the things we did at railay bay. we did not venture out to krabi town so i'm afraid i'm unable to advice anything on that as we mostly spent our days in krabi by the waters, people watching and admiring the gorgeous scenery. i really hope you will enjoy this travel guide i have curated and feel free to ask me questions! 

Tyrwhitt Afternoon

the above set of images are probably three months overdue, chucked aside in my cluttered desktop but hardly forgotten. this was back in may, where naiise held their pop up store at king george road. the concept of naiise reminds me of the hong kong label - goods of desire, where local "old school" items were given a new life via contemporary adjustments. i certainly do love the quirky items naiise have curated.  in more recent news, i believe they are currently at orchard central till the 24th of august. hashtag go support local!

we then braved the heat and walked over to chye seng huat hardware for brunch. i honestly didn't quite get their cold brew coffee - it taste really weird despite pouring all the milk and sugared syrup given (i don't normally do this for my lattes). does anyone knows why? gosh the inner caffeine addict in me needs to know how to enjoy it. my overall opinions? we'll be back because the crab meat aglio olio was surprisingly good. 

White Summer

oh hi, just me in my new spectacles!

monday's adventure with the boy. we didn't had lessons that day and made plans to photograph our new crisp white sneakers. the concept of a white summer has been going around for awhile now, and i feel pretty left out / bummed that i did not document an outfit about it. perhaps, this will do? new addition to my wardrobe is this loose, casual and dropped shoulder dress shirt number. i accompanied this look with bold, red lips (happy 49th, singapore!) and a minimal matt cube neckpiece (here). like said, marc and i were blessed with new sneakers - he is wearing chuck taylor all star leather (here) and i am wearing jack purcell leather (here) xx
