I believe it is almost all girls’ dream to have firmed and lifted face skin.
However, it is not easy to achieve this non surgically.
I have tried several types of roller and face lifting cream before I took the prewedding photo-shoot. Unfortunately, none of these impressed me much.
Therefore, I was kinda thrilled to be invited to ReFa CARAT Platinum Electronic Roller workshop at Ikeda Spa, which is located conveniently at Bukit TImah. I have been wanting to visit this first Japanese spa in Singapore for a long time.
I really love the Japanese style Tatami Zen area. I felt so relaxed sitting here.
The wide selection of high quality skin care products from Japan.
The Japanese rock garden
and the manicure & pedicure treatment area
Now I am gonna introduce the number 1 best seller beauty roller in Japan, ReFa CARAT Platinum Electronic Roller. Taaadaaaa….
So what is ReFa CARAT?
It is a double lymphatic drainage roller that provides the appearance of beautiful and firmed skin. It is developed on the concept of aesthetic kneading, strongly squeezed and work the skin, through wonderfully deep and smooth motion.
ReFa CARAT absorbs light through a solar panel and generates a weak electrical “microcurrent” that is very similar to the body’s own current.
Human skin normally has weak electrical current flowing through it to begin with. This current is thought to be one of the elements that keeps skin appearance firm, resilient and beautiful.
Daily treatment with the roller on the surface of your skin affects skin texture, making its appearance supple, shiny and firm.

Ms.Jasmine Tham, the gorgeous product trainer for ReFa, was doing product demonstration on the right side of my face for a slim face line.
On my flabby arm :p for firming
and my neck for a beautiful neckline.
I had the opportunity to try ReFa CARAT for 2 weeks.
I used the roller every night after applying moisturizer and roll 30 times on each of the following areas: cheekbones, jawlines and under eyes.
I would say that I am pretty satisfied and amazed with this product.
What I really like about ReFa CARAT are:
- The curvy design of the roller makes is so comfortable to hold and easy to roll any parts of the face and body without any awkward or uncomfortable position.
- Platinum coating on the roller. Platinum is hypoallergenic metal and safe for all skin types. Therefore, in spite of my sensitive skin, I did not encounter any rashes, redness or itchiness.
- It helps to combat the puffiness of my eyes. My eyes look fresher right after the application.
- The easy maintenance. I only need to clean the roller with a damp cloth after the application and pat it dry with the clean cloth provided and keep it in the pouch that comes together with the roller set.
Below are the results after two weeks of treatment. It can be seen that my jawlines are more defined after the treatment and visible reduce of under eye bag puffiness.

Two weeks trial might be too short to show the dramatic improvement but it has convinced me that this is the product that I am soooo gonna put in the wish list for my beauty product purchase :D
Main reason is because it helps to reduce my under eyebag, which has been my main concern for a long long time.
The price of ReFA CARAT is SGD 540 and you may purchase it from the outlets below:
- Clariancy retail outlets
- Hide & Seek (72 Bussorah Street)
- Superberry (Orchard Central #03-29)

It has been exactly 7 months since WY and I tied the knot.

OMG. This is the longest time ever I left this space unattended.
Time to do a spring cleaning and clear the dust and spiderweb :p
I am adjusting my life as a married woman and trying hard to be a good wife.
I still find it tough to wake up early and prepare breakkie for my beloved hubby as I am not a morning person. Hahaha
Nonetheless, I think I am coping it quite well. Teehee.
I have picked up new hobbies too along the way.
Still remember when I left home for the first time for studying abroad 13 years ago, I didn’t even know how to prepare a simple meal except cooking instant noodle :p
It is until recently when I have my own kitchen and time to experiment cooking different types of dishes that I realized I have hidden talent.
So proud of myself that I am able to satisfy hubby’s tummy most of the time :)
I also remember how I envy my friends who can bake well.
It never occurred in my mind that I can do it too until few months back when one of my friends bought a voucher for a cupcake baking class.
I am now trying to cook and bake healthy stuff for myself and hubby whenever it is possible.
Thanks to the technology, it is so convenient to learn cooking and baking nowadays.
There are like thousands of recipes and video tutorial available in the world wide web.
Gotta go now, catching up with my girls before they are leaving for a month holiday.
I promise to update my space more often now that I have more or less settled down now.

Weekend always passes so fast, especially when we have great time. My last weekend was really fun, had a lot of time catching up with besties.
Dinner with my long lost friend last Friday at Ayam Penyet President, Lucky Plaza. Unfortunately, both of us were too engrossed catching up that we totally forgot to take pictures. The food is good, will definitely go back when I crave for Indonesian food.
Celebrated my bestie’s belated birthday on Saturday at Palio, Hotel Michael. The ambiance was not that fantastic, but it was quiet and perfect for catching up.
Pici all’Aglione, this is another Palio’s signature menu. It is linguine pasta served with half Boston Lobster in spicy tomato sauce. This pasta is great, although the size of the lobster was a bit pathetic :p It looks totally different from the picture in menu.

It is Wednesday already. Hang in there, weekend is coming soon.
I had real great time last weekend.
Attended Burberry beauty workshop at Tangs Orchard. I first discovered Burberry beauty product in California. I love how smart and pretty the packaging is.
Saturday brunch at Robert Timms before the one for one promotion ended.
Standard Chartered roadshow outside Shaw House Orchard
I have been searching for a nice pair of wedges for long. I am so glad that I found it in Zara at a discounted price and it is in my favorite red color. Love it at the first sight. This is the second last pair and it is my size :p

Excessive exposure to air-conditioned rooms and addiction to coffee cause dehydration of my skin.
My skin feels tight and gets irritated easily. And I started noticing that my skin has developed dry lines. By end of the day, I got shiny T-zone as a result of the excessive sebum production which helps to lock the moisture in the skin.
Therefore, I was extremely glad that I had a chance from Cozycot to review the product which is really suitable for my current skin condition, which is Neutrogena® Hydro Boost™ Night Concentrate.
NEUTROGENA® Hydro Boost™ Night Concentrate is a non-comedogenic, oil-free, alcohol-free and dermatologist-tested sleeping pack. It is specially formulated with Neutogena’s smart Progressive Release System, which actively seeks out dry skin cells to replenish moisture in them throughout the night. Contains Hyaluronic Acid, Olive Extract and Ionic Mineral Complex that work double time during the night to firm up sagging skin and reduce fine lines, allowing you to maximize your beauty rest and wake up to softer and brighter skin in the morning.
Love the texture of the product which is very light and the smell is great too but not overpowering.
It is recommended to use twice weekly. However, I use it daily because of my serious dehydrated skin condition. I have been using it for four nights in a row and I notice slight improvement of my skin. Once applied, the product spreads easily and gets fully absorbed into my skin without leaving a sticky feel. After rinsing off the next morning, it left my skin feeling soft and smooth. My T-Zone gets less oily through the day with less visible dry lines.
NEUTROGENA® Hydro Boost™ Night Concentrate Sleeping Pack is available at all leading personal stores and pharmacies at a recommended retail price of S$25.90 for a pack size of 50 gram
