Skin Brightening Overnight Capsules
Previously known as the Fortifying Capsules from the White Glove Skincare, this is a special night time treatment which helps strengthen skin's appearance for a smoother, firmer look.
Sealed for freshness in each capsule contains a pure form of Vitamin C that has shown to control melanin production, accelerating the replenishment of skin's natural collagen levels.
This skin brightening treatment from the relaunched of the White Glove Extreme Skincare line is one of Elizabeth Arden's Star Products. With good results to boot!
I use this treatment every 2 nights, after cleansing, toning and applying eye cream. The serum penetrates into the skin within seconds and leaves my skin fresh and taut without any greasiness. I really love the velvety feel of the product, however, like its predecessor, it tends to flake when I apply on a moisturizer afterwards. One thing to note the difference is that this re-formulated treatment doesn't leave that dry patch on my hands after application.
The smell reminds me of potato chips!! I can't help but take sniffs of it every time I use it (lol) Plus, this treatment seems to have even out my skin tone. Bye Bye uneven brown discoloration!
For daytime treatment, I highly recommend the Skin Brightening Day Essence!!

Clarifying Foam Cleanser
The cleanser is of a foamy solution which saves me the trouble of mixing in water to create a foam. I like to leave it on my face for 5 minutes as it seems to brighten up my skin faster. Prior I had tested this method on my hand and the results were evident. The sweet scent is not the least bit overwhelming and the cleanser doesn't strip off the natural oil from the skin.
I really love the design of the pump - it is easy to control the amount of solution you need per face wash, which makes dispensing a breeze.
It only takes 1 pump to wash your face, so a bottle goes a long way!
Gentle Brightening Lotion
The toner has a pleasant smell, similar with the cleanser. This alcohol-free formula removes down to the last traces of dull, dead surface skin cells, which really impresses me especially on the days when I don't even wear any makeup. I could see the lingering gunk on my cotton puff, eww! (lol)
Brightening UV Protector SPF 50 PA+++
According to the press kit given by Elizabeth Arden Singapore, this UV base is non-oily and non-shiny. However the product doesn't sit well with me at all. It takes a while for my combination skin to absorb the sunscreen, and my face would start to shine 2 hours later, making my skin feel greasy. After applying, it leaves a sticky feel on my hands. The worst came when my face broke out after using for a week.

THEFACESHOP Nature's Gifts Volcanic Ash Self-Heating Mask
Volcanic ash is fine porous particles of natural minerals formed during volcanic eruptions. On skin, the porous particles absorb oil and impurities to purify and prevent clogged pores.
A mask with a self-heating formula that instantly warms up on contact with skin to open up and deep cleanse pores while the Porous Volcanic Ash powder absorbs excess oil and gently removes pore clogging debris.
Having used other self-heating treatments prior, I was surprised to find the product is of a watery texture, as the ones I've tried are thicker.
The mask heats slightly after applying a thin layer on my face. It is advisable to use during your shower becauseit tends to dip south 5 minutes later. Using for the first time, I'd tasted something funky as I busily typed away while waiting for the obligatory 15 minutes to pass.
Nowadays I apply a layer and wait around 5 minutes until the heat wears off before applying another layer. This is a better way to utilise the product because just 1 thin layer really does nothing for my skin.
My pores are visibly shrunken and leaves my skin looking refreshed and smooth.

Taken before I left for the Shiseido Workshop.
Absolutely J'adore Shiseido Luminizing Satin Face Color in Tea Rose. It is a dark reddish shade that has to be used with caution, unless you want to look like a baboon's butt! (lol)
For John Bartlett's collection at the on-going Fashion Week, Shiseido Makeup Director Dick Page's created a masculine look with soft, dewy skin that's flushed from the cold.
To achieve the popular wintery pink flush, mix the tea rose color and white highlighter(also from the Spring 2010 collection) on the cheeks and nose to give a sun-kissed look.
This soft-flushed look is just perfect for Valentine's Day~. (o^_^o)
Here's some outtakes from my makeover:

I've had fun today, thanks to Shiseido Singapore & Pearlin who loved lovely after her makeover☆
An interactive workshop was held today to pre-sample the makeup line from the brand's Spring 2010 collection. I had seen a sneak peak of the makeup presentation at the Michael Kors show last year and Shiseido Makeup Director Dick Page managed to incorporate lightness and femininity down the international runways.
What I Got: (Clockwise)
- Luminizing Satin Eye Color in Ghost & Peach
Ghost is a light shimmerish purple shade while Peach is of a coral-shimmery color.
- Luminizing Satin Face Color in High Beam White & Tea Rose
The lovely makeup artist used the white shimmery satin powder on my brow bones, inner corners of my eyes and to set over areas that needed concealing.
Tea Rose is the darkest shade I ever have in my blush collection. Though the reddish shade swatched on my finger sort of intimidated me, but it had me looking flushed after seeing a hunk(unfortunately a non-existent one). Mental note: Use it with caution!!
- Perfect Rouge Glowing Matte in RD 722
I'm not sure why it belongs to the reds, it looks like a greyish pink on my lips. A great matte nude shade!
- Luminizing Lip Gloss in Pop Life
I like how the color blends with the color of my bare lips, resulting in a subtle finish.
- Sheer Matifying Compact in Natural Fair Ivory
According to the representative, this powder foundation conceals pores and imperfections and absorbs excess oil. She was right! After my makeover, I took a 15min walk to another shopping mall and though I was sweating, my makeup still stays matt and shine-free by the time I got home!
I tend to stay away from powder foundations as they might look cakey if you pile on too much on your face. But this "Light as a feather" product completely changed my mind. It gives me a smooth-finish with a glow♥
Shiseido Spring 2010 Collection will be available at Takashimaya from February 26th.
I had my hair styled at the workshop, at the hands of James who gave me medium soft curls. The Shiseido Design Tex hair products are only available at salons; mine is 04 for Medium Hold and natural movements.
As for my makeover, Sky and Fresco were used on my eyes, Carnation on my cheeks and Pop Life on my lips.
I met Sesame at the workshop too!! o(^-^)o
After having my hair done, I looked to my left and there she was! Haha! We exchanged a few words; she'd asked how Milo was doing after poor baby lost his teeth (3, at present count!). Then she left while I was having my makeup done. A sweet, short first meeting, I must say!
