The Solution to Dry Itchy Skin ~ Bottega Verde Olive Range | ad

When I first heard that Bottega Verde is introducing their latest Olive Range, I was absolutely ecstatic. "Finally, maybe a solution to my hubz dry itchy skin!!" I thought.

Bottega Verde's Olive products are made with people suffering from dry demanding skin that requires intense moisturising and nourishing. Produced from BV's very own Olive farm, the olives are harvested mid-October and are ensured that these fruits (yes, they are fruits) are kept in their finest condition throughout the process. 

Introducing some of the products from this range: 

1. Bath and Shower Gel ($12.90)
2. Body Butter ($19.90)
3. Body Oil ($39.90)
4. Hand Cream ($9.90)

I have to say, all the products smelt AMAZING!! Its this nice relaxing floral scent that soothes and calms and senses. Perfect for a pampering session or when you just want to have nice moisturised skin at the same time smelling good. 

The product that received my highest recommendation is this Body Oil. Let me tell you this dolls, this stuff WORKS LIKE MAGIC.

On the first day I received it, immediately I pass this to my hubz and told him to slather liberally on the problematic area. And on the second day, his itch seems to have GONE!! Like byebye-itchy-skin, let's-not-see-each-other-ever-again GONE. 

I was absolutely impressed. I mean, he has been battling with this issue for several months, even doctor's medicine couldn't cure him and then this product just made the itch disappear, like that. I swear, this is just freakin' mind-blowing. 

Alright, I need to stop here. You guys seriously have to go check the product out yourself to test it. I can totally see myself repurchasing for my man. Plus, the whole range is extremely affordable thus purchasing them repeatedly will definitely not break the bank. 

Do head over to Suntec City L2-454 (North Wing) and Punggol Waterway Point L1-56 to give the products a go.

Huge thanks to Adjectif Co and Bottega Verde for your generosity. ^_^

Effective Pain/Aches Relieving Tool | ad

Wow, life has been taking a huge toll on me that I fell really ill for last few days. But I didn't want to neglect my blog for too long thus am gonna do a review on these products. 

A continuation to my previous post, PS Love has been very kind and generous to send some of their newly launched heat packs for different parts of the body for me to try out. 

I really appreciate the timing of these products to reach me as I was experiencing ache throughout my whole body (no kidding) as I was down with fever. 

As you can see, there are now heat packs for your neck, your back and an improved version of the MenstruHeat (the previous version review is here). 

As per instructed, I applied the neck and back head pad to my aching parts and boy-oh-boy does it sooth my pain and calms my nerves. As usual, I really love how securely the pads adhered to my skin and clothing without having to fuss too much. The heat generated from the pads are also just right as I don't feel any burns. These definitely aid in making me feel more comfortable during my fever.

The newly improved MenstruHeat is upgraded to a more ergonomic design whereby the "2-piece" pad sits better on my tummy with wider coverage thus spreading the heat more evenly on the applied area.

A word of caution though and I would first have to put it out there that its entirely my fault for being negligence. I totally forgot that I have the pad on my tummy area and carried my daughter which resulted in her sensitive skin being red from the heating (do bear in mind that she's only 7 months old). Hence, I highly suggest that the pads be kept away from infant and babies.

So, with that aside, I do recommend these products for people who are experiencing aching and pain on any parts of their body to provide instant relief.

And the good news is: if you use code CINDYKHOR on their website, you'll get a 20% off on your purchases. How cool is that?

Available now at all 7-eleven stores and Guardian outlets.

The Answer to Menstrual Cramps | ad

Hello peeps. Before I proceed to talk all about ladies issues, I would like to wish you a Happy New Year and may this year be fruitful and prosperous for all.

Okay, with that aside, let's get on with the nitty gritty shall we?

I have been battling PMS for like... ever since I've got my period. The nauseousness, diarrhoea, backache, bad temper always accompanied with excruciating cramps and pain.

And I do mean, EXCRUCIATING with all the exclamation marks!!!

Those who are close to me have seen me crouching on the floor, holding my tummy, moaning, fidgeting and popping pills with shaky hands in hope that the pain would subside. My mum even went as far as to fill a bottle with warm water to place on my tummy as it helps with soothing the pain.

Now, I considered myself extremely lucky that MenstruHeat send these over (as if my prayers has been answered) and I got to try it out.

It claims to:
1. Provide relief
2. Soothes and eases pain
3. No side effects

Application is easy. You just peel off the sticky part and apply onto the affected areas (best on the underside of your clothes as the heating can get quite intense).

I have to say, IT WORKS as it claims!!!

Within a minute, the patch starts heating up and I felt instant relief. I don't mean like it takes all the pain away but the heating sure provides some soothing effect and I don't feel as distressed. Think I'm officially in love with this product now. 

Do head over to their official website for more info (there's also a FREE menstrual tracker on the site) and also their blog with informative articles relating women healthcare (such as food to consume for menstrual cramp relief).

MenstruHeat is now available at all 7-eleven stores and Guardian outlets.

Shu Uemura Murukami Collection

So the other day when I saw this collection on Instagram I knew I have to get it. Its the Shu Uemura Murukami and seldom this brand excites me with this much intensity.

Here's my loot.

Trying hard to be artsy fartsy with the gem biscuits.

So I got their Rouge Bloom lipstick which is a bright red in the tube but when swatched, it is this sheer true red with a sheen. Really love that the intensity of the colour is not in-your-face and it is buildable to your liking. 

A little close up on the art work. Looking at it makes me happy somehow ^_^.

Next in my basket is this Protective Moisture Primer in Beige to counteract my reddish skin tone. The texture of the product is really emollient and spread easily on my skin.

Best thing of all is that my skin love this stuff and immediately laps up the product. Another feature of this product that tickles my fancy is how lightweight this feels on my skin. Its literally like I'm wearing nothing. Plus, this primer has SPF 50 PA+++ thus if you are in a hurry, you can totally skip your sunscreen and apply this straight. Anything that saves time is in good books with me. 

Last item I got from the collection is their Clarifying Cleansing Oil. I have always been a fan of their oil as they don't sting my eyes and rid my face thoroughly of makeup. However along the way in my beauty adventure I side tracked and tried other brands to see if there are other alternatives out there. Hence you can imagine how excited I was to come back to this signature product. Definitely looking forward to give it a go. And can we just take a moment to admire the beautiful flowery bottle!?

I really love the collection as a whole (although I didn't get much but these 3 items are enough to impress me). Its a fun and unique collection that caters towards the younger generation. Do check them out at their counters.
