🦁🦁🦁 The fifth product from UNI-® is their highly soothing facial essence stick! Let’s take a closer look to see what it is! --------------------------------- Sensitive Skin Facial Essence - roll-on treatment stick with revolutionary patented ingredient, MIRA®. With its unique formulation, this essence brings soothing, repairing, and anti-inflammation effects to sensitive and eczema skin. --------------------------------- Again, this comes in a rollerball dispenser so my usual concerns applies. But having used the ‘other’ rollerball - acne essence, for several weeks now, I can now honestly say I...the rollerball design does not really bother me that much. . Being a sensitive skin essence, I really have no ways to test it out. I do not have any sensitized spot(s) or eczema condition to determine its effectiveness claim. Maybe I will test it on an insect bite when I get one. Oh! Yes, this healing essence is said to work on inspect bites too! — #ExploreUNI #MadeInSingapore #SupportLocal #RediscoverTheOriginalWonder #SingaporeBrand #Clozette #Skincare #Beauty #SP
🦁🦁🦁 Continuing my #theLIONtryit for UNI-®, today’s post is going to be the fourth product from the brand. --------------------------------- Acne Skin Treatment Essence - a roll-on treatment stick with revolutionary patented ingredient, MIRA®. Together with Acetic acid, this acne treatment is an antibacterial powerhouse. It treats acne “rapidly, reduces acne occurrence, heals and soothes acne skin”. --------------------------------- I was very confounded when I realized that this uses a rollerball applicator. I constantly worry about cross-contamination and hygiene issues when it involves a rollerball. In this instance, I relented and went in for it since I am supposed to roll it directly on troubled spot(s) immediately after face wash. This also means that if I want to apply any other skincare products, I would do so after maybe a minute or so once the essence dries off and have a little time to work. . In terms of efficacy? I have only tested on popped pimples so I will only comment based on that. This acne treatment essence does help in reducing the redness, soreness, and a wee bit on the size. When paired with the Skin Cell Activation and Regeneration Essence (the tall bottle), the overall complexion seems to be coming along quite nicely now. Oh, before I forget, I am currently on my 11th day of using UNI-® and the coast looks to be clear so far. Let’s continue to monitor!
🦁🦁🦁 The third product from UNI-® is their anti-aging facial essence. Let’s take a closer look to see what it is! --------------------------------- Reverse Skin Regeneration Essence - a premium anti-aging facial essence with MIRA®, a revolutionary patented ingredient complex which helps the skin repair, restore, and strengthen skin’s immunity and resistance. --------------------------------- The priciest product of the bunch, this watery essence is said to help accelerate skin cell renewal, self-repair and restore, strengthens immunity and resistance, and works to bring the skin back to a healthy, youthful, and hydrated condition. Its incredible skin recovering and restoring properties can also be credited to the inclusion of Placenta Protein and Argireline (Acetyl Hexapeptide-8) in the formula. These 2 notable ingredients deliver promising youth-restoring effects to the skin that can be both observed and felt. . On first impression, this feels exactly the same as the previous 2 essences I shared. All three of them feels remarkably similar - watery, light, light scented (no fragrance added), absorbs fast, dries matte. The only slight difference between the 3 is that this anti-aging essence seems to leave a slight (just the slightest) tackiness. It is not too obvious unless you really zero in on it. . This is obviously a way more premium and functional product as compared to the other 2 essences. I dare say that this anti-aging one is more of a treatment type of essence while the other 2 are more of general up keeping type.
🦁🦁🦁 The next product from UNI-® is their standard skin essence, exactly like what we learnt yesterday except this is more of a hydrating version. --------------------------------- Skin Cell Activation and Regeneration Essence - A potent, watery essence with patented ingredient, MIRA®. Offers 7 key benefits including repair and regenerate. --------------------------------- The black bottle I shared yesterday was the “Mens” version, the difference of that with this is its oil shine control and reduction benefit. This clear bottle focuses more on hydration on top of repairing and accelerating skin tissues regeneration. . In terms of scent, even though there is no added fragrance, there is this pleasant light scent which goes away as very quickly. You might not even realize the scent is there! . On first impression, it feels really exactly the same as the Men’s version. Both are light, refreshing and super watery. Both absorbs super quickly and dries off to a matte finish. Again, exactly similar to the one I shared yesterday, both of these “essences” are more of a first booster type of product to me and will serve well in the long run. They do not provide the instant gratification of typical plumping and moisturizing essence in the look and feel aspects. If true to my theory, then these essences will help bring a balance to your skin’s health and normalize the cells activity. I shall use this in the night and the Men’s in the morning since it has an sebum control effect.
🦁🦁🦁 Over the next few days, I will be sharing a little more about each of the product from UNI-®, an exciting “fuss-free” Singapore brand. --------------------------------- Skin Cell Activation and Regeneration Essence for Men - A potent, watery essence with patented ingredient, MIRA®. Offers 8 key benefits including repair and regenerate. --------------------------------- This sleek, black bottle is formulated for men and provides additional help in shine control as compared to the standard version. . On first impression, this lightly scented (no fragrance used) essence feels exactly like a water and I would categorize it as a first booster-type of product (eg. FTE). Although this does not contain any kind alcohol, it does get absorbed and dries off matte and comfortable. However, unlike most products that are labeled essence, I do not observe any visible plumpness or suppleness to the skin after application. . If it is true to the brand’s philosophy, then my theory is that this essence works to bring about a balance and restore the skin to its primary state so that it may better heal itself, by itself. In this case, a consistent usage over a period is required to truly observe or feel the difference it brings. . As part of my #theLIONtryit campaign, I will continue to use it over the period of December, monitor the progress and report back.
🦁🦁🦁 “When did we forget? Our body healing itself, this wonder of nature, we are born with.” Such, is the inspiration of the exciting new Singapore-born brand, UNI-®. . Super curious to see how magical MIRA® is. Oh, what is that you ask? Go find out all about it on my IGTV now (link in bio).
🦁🦁🦁 “When did we forget? Our body healing itself, this wonder of nature, we are born with.” Such, is the inspiration of the exciting new Singapore-born brand, UNI-®. Our body heals itself when it is running normally, UNI-® knows it and is tapping on this fundamental fact and maximizing its potential by combining formulas with the patented ingredient, MIRA®. Containing Chitosan, this potent core ingredient is proven to help repair, rejuvenate, restore, deeply hydrate, and fight signs of aging. Furthermore, with its antibacterial and tissue regenerating properties, this is especially beneficial to those currently dealing with acne. As a “fuss-free” brand, they are committed to using only minimal complementary ingredients in all its formulas. No artificial ingredients nor preservatives are used.

There are 6 products UNI-® offers and they are: • Acne Skin Intensive Healing Mask • Acne Skin Treatment Essence • Sensitive Skin Treatment Essence • Skin Cell Activation & Regeneration Essence for Men • Skin Cell Activation & Regeneration Essence • Reverse Skin Regeneration Essence I cannot wait to test the promises of MIRA® and watch my complexion transform!

🦁🦁🦁 It’s the most wonderful time of the year~ yes! It is! It is one of my personal favorite holiday because there is just something magical in the air during this time of year. It could be the eggnog, or the delicious oven roasted turkey, but mainly I think are friends gathering for secret Santa gift exchange. This year, gift someone the special Starry Dune Holiday Collection from Huxley because trust me, the snow globe in the set is going to be sure winner! .

🦁🦁🦁 After the previous successful campaign in my #theLIONtryit series, I am excited to be collaborating with a new homegrown beauty brand, UNI. This is something pretty special, not because it is a SG brand, but because they incorporated an unique ingredient that is commonly used in the medical field and not in home care personal products. Excited to find out what some of their products are? Find out together with me tomorrow in my unboxing video! . PS. UNI skincare does not have an IG account (yet), so do head over to their Facebook page: Explore.UNI, to find out more about it! — #UNIskincare #UNIsg #RyanraroarxUNI #SP
🦁🦁🦁 Ta-dahhhhhhhh! Presenting #theLIONunbox of the newly released, highly anticipated branded collab from Tonymoly x Moschino! Watch the full unboxing video on my IGTV (link in bio) now! . Special thanks to @beautifulbuns_sg for helping me score it! — @tonymoly_street @tonymolysg @itsjeremyscott #TonymolyxMoschino #MoschinoxTonymoly #토니모리 #모스키노 #tonymoly_street #Moschino #JeremyScott #Clozette #Beauty #Makeup #LimitedEdition
🦁🦁🦁 Another Origins mask that hit the sweet spot for me! This is another keeper in my stash. --------------------------------- Origins Original Skin™ Retexturing Mask - a 3-clay purifying mask with tiny little jojoba beans to provide a mild physical exfoliation. The mask also has some lovely botanical extracts to help condition the skin but the inclusion of at least more tab than 5 essential oil. --------------------------------- As you can see, I have squeezed our very ounce of mask I could muster. It’s time to make a trip go down to make a repurchase!
🦁🦁🦁 When you have an older sister that knows your unquivering love for beauty, and given me 2 months notice to slowly list down the items I want from Taiwan, of course I had to make it count! Well, sort of, because as you guys can see, I think this is quite the humble haul. Personally, I feel it is better to be shopping in person than to create a list. It is far easier to get inspired to make a purchase for something that you can see and touch, especially for the new releases that are not even listed online anyway yet! . So what I have tasked my sis to buy are: • Neogence N3 Centella Renewing Mask • Neogence N3 Verbena Brightening Mask • Crest 3D White™ Brilliance Toothpaste • Maybelline NY Super Cushion 2-in-1 . I am really excited to try the Crest 3D White toothpaste the most as I have often seen it hogging spots in yearly “Best of” list for so long. Plus, Singapore does not import this brand so...all the more I have to see what it is all about! Yayyy, maybe, just maybe...there will be improvement on my coffee-stained teeth *fingers crossed*.
🦁🦁🦁 I love my beauty products, but I don’t fancy dramas, controversies, nor bear to watch years of dedicated branding crash and burn at a single person’s whim. That is mostly why I hadn’t reached for this at-home peel even though I adored its results. Lucky for me and thousands of users who share my sentiments, the brand in question has got itself a replacement chief. Someone who has the dedication, the drive, and business savviness to (hopefully) turn the tide around. From what I see and read, she is doing a good job so far! . Anyhoo, happy is me! I went searching for my bottle of skin resurfacing and renewing liquid ruby goodness and slathered it all over my face. I wore it for a whole good 20 mins (instructions said 10) and liked what I see in the mirror after rinsing it away. Complexion appears glowing and texture feels smoother and softer. Remember what I said earlier about the results I adored? Yeah, these are just some of them. . This ah-home peel is made up of 30% AHA Blend (Glycolic, Lactic, Tataric, Citric acids), 2% BHA (Salicylic acid), Hyaluronic Acid Crosspolymer, Vitamin B5, Black Carrot and Tasmanian Pepperberry. The Tasmanian Pepperberry is said to help reduce the irritation that occur with acid use, but seeing this is quite a high concentration home-use peel, first time users should follow the recommendation by the brand. I have used my The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution for many, many months now that I am at that stage where I can tolerate 20~30 mins Wear time with it to nary a side effect. . Ahhhh, I miss you my dear effective at-home peel! I will be putting you on me whenever I can.
🦁🦁🦁 Black Friday may have gone and Cyber Monday is ending soon, but the sales and promos doesn’t have to stop at that. Australia’s botanical brand, A’kin, has launched 2 festive bundle sets in time for your Christmas shopping, whether it is for yourself or your friends. Available in ‘Moisture Rich Miracle Facial Trio’ $69.90 (up. $99.30) and ‘Hydrating Facial Trio’ $51.90 (up. $74.30). . I have with me the lovely Hydrating Facial Trio which are filled with organic Coconut Water and Green Tea among other botanical extracts. This set contains the 3 basic necessities including a cleansers, toner, and moisturizer. They are all sized at 150ml and I think they make a lovely gift for someone who is also a skincare enthusiast. Special highlight to the new and seasonal-only Hydrating Facial Moisturizer. . Products from A’kin, the 100% vegan, cruelty free, Australian made and owned, can be found stocked at Robinsons, Lazada, and Shopee. Happy shopping!
🦁🦁🦁 It has been awhile since I last posted a #Maskfie. My complexion has taking a beating after countless sleepless night before the d-day. Anyway, I have finally taken some time tonight to zone mask to get deep into my pores while rejuvenating the others. --------------------------------- T-Zone: Deep cleanse, purify, anti-acne - for this, I used the Origins Clear Improvement® Active Charcoal Mask. This has worked wonders for me in the past to purify skin and to decongest. --------------------------------- Cheeks: Condition, boost - for my cheeks, since I feel that they are okay but still needing some sort of cleansing, I picked Ceramiracle First Light The Reboot Mask for the job because of the 25% BFE Complex, gentle but effective Kaolin clay, and proven beneficial ingredients like Lactic Acid, Centella Asiatica, Tea Tree, Witch Hazel, Ceramides and Allantoin just to name a few. --------------------------------- After wearing this combination for 10~15 mins, I could feel the skin taking on a softer, smoother, and...relieved state. The little minute scrub particles from the Reboot Mask also greatly helped in making the skin the way I felt after rinsing it all away. . It’s a Sunday, how are you “detoxing” your skin to prepare for the brand new week ahead?
🦁🦁🦁 Swatches time! Here’s how the chocolate bar eyeshadow palette and gelato ice cream tints look like when swatched. --------------------------------- The Face Shop Choco Monopop Eye Shadow 01 Dark Chocolate - a chocolate bar-inspired, 8-color eyeshadow palette in an assortment of finishings. --------------------------------- The Face Shop Gelato Tint - an ice cream cone-inspired lip tint in 6 delicious colors and colorful packaging --------------------------------- First impression: the eyeshadow swatches beautifully and fallouts are almost next to none. I especially love how pigmented the shimmer ones are and buttery the matte ones are. The only problem I had with this palette is the color 07 Dark Walnut Brown which did not swatched as smoothly as the others were. In regards to the Gelato Tints, the two colors I had are lovely - pigmented and vibrant with a sheer glossy finish. As far as novelty goes, these two are a balance of function and design! . These will be available as part of a holiday gift set together with a cushion foundation on The Face Shop LazMall on Lazada SG from tomorrow onwards. Woohoo~ also, for ONE day only, shoppers will get 8pcs of Real Nature Mask Sheets free when they buy 8pcs of it.
🦁🦁🦁 Ho Ho Ho! Merry Black Friday! Have you guys heard? The Face Shop has officially launched its e-store on Lazada LazMall! Now you can get all your TFS goodies on Lazada and get them delivered to you right to your doorstep. . Its official launch date is on the 26/11, but discount vouchers of $5 off $40, or $12 off $80,can be collected from today onwards. These discount vouchers will be valid through 11/12. And this pretty sweet dessert sweet holiday gift set will also be available from the launch date too.
🦁🦁🦁 Here’s a tasty jelly snack I have been having these few days while I’m nursing a cold and sore throat. --------------------------------- Glam.D 5Kcal Water Jelly - watery jelly snack in 3 delightful fruity flavors with just 5Kcal per pack. Containing real fruit purée and natural sweetener, it allows easy satisfaction of those with sweet tooth or those that just want a quick snack. --------------------------------- Now, my personal favorite is the one in red. That’s the Apple flavor. That’s the one I’d go for and highly recommend. The other flavors are mango in yellow, and peach in pink. They all tastes really refreshing, I just think apple flavor taste so much better! . At $3/pack, it is priced somewhat reasonably. There are plenty more snacks at a lower price, but I can’t bear to calculate the calories involved. Also, the water jelly is really refreshing. Have I said that already? . Glam.D is a top weight management brand whose sister brands include the familiar AprilSkin and MediCube. Check out their range of products available at Guardian stores now!
