ReFa Carat Platinum Electronic Roller


Sponsored post

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.

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.

These are the after treatment results.

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 😀
Main reason is because it helps to reduce my under eyebag, which has been my main concern for a long long time.

Neutrogena® Hydro Boost™ Night Concentrate

Sponsored by Cozycot

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
