I’m one of the slow ones. I didn’t know what BB cream was till March this year when Mark’s friend explained to me what it was. And I’ve been a convert since and I’ve totally stopped using foundations and I only use BB creams and BB powder!
For those who are as blur as I am….
“BB cream, also known as Blemish Balm or Blemish Base, is a cosmetic item sold in Korea. It was initially used by dermatologist to help laser surgery patients protect, soothe and refine highly sensitive skin while providing light coverage for post-laser scars, acne and other blemishes.
Originally formulated in Germany, BB cream has in recent years gained a huge following for its skin regenerating properties and is now also widely used in Asia to provide natural looking skin coverage. Korean celebrities and cosmetic companies were the first to discover BB cream, and its popularity has now spread from Korea to Japan and South-East Asia.”
I love the natural and dewy effect that I can get from BB creams and at the same time knowing that BB creams, being mineral makeup, wouldn’t clog my pores at all, and they are laden with wonderful skin care properties to take good care of my skin while giving me pretty coverage!
And hence, I was really glad to be sponsored Dr. Jart + Premium BB cream to try out!
The wonders of Dr. Jart + BB cream…………..
So excited to tear up and packaging to try it out! I’m going to put it on to go for a chalet to see if its staying enough too!
To show the effects…. Im going to be really brave and show my naked makeup-less face again… Don’t go yet!! its not that scary!!!
Errmm… well…. maybe a little scary~~~~~~
With zero makeup —> Uneven colour, super obvious dark eye rings, scars and marks….
Squeeze some BB cream and spread it evenly over the entire face…
Ta-da! More even colour!
The coverage is light but good for light makeup days. I would go to work with just Dr. Jart + BB cream alone. But if I’m heading for functions or photo shoots I will top it over with some powder to better coverage. I love the light and more watery texture. Its easier to spread as compared to my previous BB cream! Not oily and comes with a very high SPF (can I skip sunblock? heheheh….)!
side by side comparison….
and add a little eye makeup and there! all ready to go out to my friend’s chalet!
After a few hours in the hot and humid Singapore: Dr. Jart + Premium BB cream stayed on pretty well and I’m not worried of the sun because of its high SPF!
Dr. Jart + Premium BB cream is now sold exclusively at Watson’s at $59.00! Grab yours fast!
All ready to put on your pretty pretty makeup when you looked into the mirror and spot a zit? Even worse, a few more zits? Sigh…. This happens to me at least once a month. Although my skin is quite alright, I always get the “before the period” outbreak.
Took this in the cab with my iphone to capture the scars with the natural lighting!
See the pimple scars? Haiya… I’ve got itchy fingers too…. I love to touch and try to poke and squeeze my zits….
I don’t want more and more scars littered across my face and so luckily I was sponsored Eucerin’s Dermo Purifyer Range of products suitable for acne prone or the occasionally blemished skin!
1) Eucerin Dermo Purifyer Cleanser
2) Eucerin Dermo Purifyer Scrub
3) Eucerin Dermo Purifyer Cream Gel
Eucerin Dermo Purifyer contains skin natural Lactic Acid to help eradicate acne, pimples, whiteheads and blackheads to give a clearer and healthier looking skin. It has an optimal 2% Lactic Acid formulation that gets to the root of our skin problems.
Eucerin Dermo Purifyer Cleanser
This light oil-free cleanser is clinically proven to treat effectively and gently by reducing excess sebum while it gently cleanses. Retails at $21.20.
This cleanser is light and watery and has a very fresh and light smell. Initially I was expecting a squeaky and tight feeling on my face after washing, like most of the sebum-removing cleansers are. However, no! There was no tightness and it was still very moisturising. It was good to know that while sebum from my face is being removed, my face isn’t stripped off the essential moisture and is still hydrated!
Eucerin Dermo Purifyer Scrub
This mild daily scrub comes with Lactic Acid beads for gentle, effective deep cleansing that removes blackheads and refines pores. Retails at $18.60.
Although its a scrub, its gentle enough for daily use and I really love to do my mask after a scrub so that my skin can absorb all the good stuff better! The beads aren’t to rough and the regular scrubbing did clear up my face and removes the dead skin cells to expose the radiant skin beneath. Smell wise? Fresh and light like the Eucerin Dermo Purifyer Cleanser! Like!
Eucerin Dermo Purifyer Cream Gel
Contrary to popular beliefs, moisturizing oily skin is key in regulating excess sebum production in the skin. This water-based cream gel helps to remove acne within 3 weeks while keeping skin hydrated and oil-free. Retails at $25.70.
I love this Eucerin Dermo Purifyer Cream Gel for my zits! I’ll spread it over my entire face and it doesn’t feel tight and drying at all. Unlike many acne or pimple products that contains drying ingredients like Salicylic Acid or Benzoyl Oxide, this cream gel doesn’t, and hence there’s not redness, flakiness or peeling. My pimples dried out fast and its really effective! Love love!
And here’s the good stuff for you!

Tada babes! We love good skin!!
I have been looking for a nice nude lip colour since my eye makeup is always very strong. Went browsing Watson’s shelves for one and spotted Makemania’s Curvy Lip Silicone hanging innocently on one of them!
Makemania Curvy Lip Silicone 504 Milky Pink
There were a few colours there and I was choosing between their lip concealer and the Milky Pink above. The lip concealer looked a little too dark for my liking and so I took this pink (then now im still looking for a nice nude lip colour…. anyone got any good brands to intro? hee…) instead since I kinda like the colour!
Sorry babes! the ingredients part’s cut off! oops! My bad!
Although it doesn’t says anywhere on the packaging that it contains SPF, I saw Titanium Dioxide in the list of ingredients and its an ingredient commonly used for sunscreens (correct me if im wrong! ).
Unlike normal lipglosses with the brush or sponge tip kind of applicator, this one is entirely plastic and flat. Application is quite easy with it and I thought it would be convenient if I need to wash it!
Slight tinge of colour, but very very glossy with a nice sheen!
I like the moisturising effect but it might be sticky if you are not used to stickiness from glosses. I like it though!
Went clubbing with it. Quite lasting too! But don’t expect it to be super long-lasting since its a gloss!
The damage? If I didn’t remember wrongly its either $23 or $24 dollars! Ok la not too expensive!
Day 3 Challenge: A Picture of You and Your Friends
(Before I start: I know I still got a couple of sponsored products to review and post, I’ll do it up nicely real soon! Heh!)
Ok… Day 3 Challenge states A picture of me and my friends. But cannot loh, Im going to dedicate this post here to all the friends who stood by me through my good times AND bad times.
To those who peek through my life for the past 3 weeks would know that I’ve actually been very depressed and went through a hell of a ride. Although some of us do not meet very often due to our hectic schedules, I still wanna thank you for the meet-ups, calls and sms-es.
Photos are not lined up in order of importance okie…. random la… I love u all!
Jun! Our path crossed in Sec One when the very hyperactive boyish-looking me turned behind to asked her where she was staying at, and we’ve been the best of friends ever since, and has been together through thick and thin.
Miss Myrelle! Our history dates back even further…. back to when we were 7 years old and when our form teacher, Miss Leong, tried to line us up on the first day of school. She was my partner in Primary One and we’ve been holding hands and walking down the life path since. Her positiveness never fails to rub on me!
Captain Planet. Knew each other from Chinese Studies in NUS but got closer only later and sometimes we’ll just laugh our life away… He’s been very busy with his gf lately so no time to meet our little gang which we called Mayday, just because there are 5 of us.
Rachel and Alice. They knew what friendship means. Like any relationship, friendship needs tremendous amount of effort to maintain and keep up. Busy as we all are, we’ll always do a little meet-up during holidays and Im super touch that they sprung into action the minute they knew something happened to me. Thanks! (Actually all my friends that I show here are like that la! So I shan’t be naggy and repeat under every photo!)
Shi. We were classmates in the tertiary years but surprisingly, we only got closer these few years!
The CJC, NYJC and NJC gang. Without Liqing, we would never have gel together for so long! Im looking forward to Christmas BBQ already!
My bro. We have similar weird habits, likings and taste for food and that made me like him a lot when we first got to know each other. Thanks for the messages and the tweets! U are one fantastic guy!
Aww… totally miss the days playing basketball together at the Lorong Ah Soo court and talking nonsense and philosophies with this very psycho psychiatrist! Met him in Japanese Studies in NUS and hahaha…. became great friends and I call him Lao Da! (The Crayon Shinchan one.. you know?)LOL…
Friends that are only a few months old. But how long we know each other don’t matter, what matters is that they are there when I need help and when I need a listening ear! Oh they are hyperactive too…. always have activities and plans up their sleeves! I like! hahaha…. And Miss Fiona is going to put on braces together with me!
Eh… I realized I don’t have photo of Heng… Nvm… he’s included.
The one as chio as the flower… ok sorry… she more chio…
One strong lady who offers support all the time. We may not be meeting up very often and may not be as close, but thanks for the messages!
Mr Pikachu. Long time JC mate. I just said thank you yesterday right…. I shall repeat then. heh!
Mr Grey. Anytime can ask him out for supper, and anytime for a good long talk! So many years already I’ve lost count!
Our class didn’t keep in contact very much except the 3 of us. Let’s go on a tour together!
Hahaha… so I couldn’t keep to the topic at all. Just want to take this chance to thank the wonderful people in my life who has made life a lot easier to bear. So you can be sure that I’ll keep you in my heart and I’ll be there when you need me. Its a promise. 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Day 2 Challenge: The Meaning Behind Your Blogger Name
Because my name is Xinyi (心仪). That simple.
And it was inspired by 蜡笔小新 as well. Hahahah!
I had actually wanted to take this url: http://xin.blogspot.com. But I couldn’t because it was taken. So I added one “z”, but still taken! In the end, I got the url that I’ve been using for the past 6 years — xin + z + (another) z = xinzz.blogspot.com. And I think it actually look better with 2 Zs now… hahaha.
So yeah… Xiaoxin… its warns me to be careful too you know.
Imagine the scenario……
You were walking along the road in total peace when someone shouted “xiao xin!” (which means “be careful” in Chinese…), what would your reaction be?
Ya… Iive been pretty much on my toes ever since this nick came around….. especially to those who SHOUTS my nick…. hahahahah!
PS: And therefore, its fun, because my nick doesn’t just meant “be careful”, it has become a noun too. And Dear Dear made used of this to compose a song called 《小心》for me when we just got together.
Day 1 Challenge: A Recent Picture of You and 15 Interesting Facts About Yourself
While waiting for Dear to go out to eat nice chicken rice with me…
1) I love to sleep. So much that I get upset if I don’t get at least 6 to 7 hours of sleep a day. On days when I do not have to work, I can sleep for 12 hours straight. I remember a JC friend telling me not to sleep so much and waste my time, because I can sleep as much as I want after I die and no one will disturb me….
But then hor, I think maybe people will disturb me… ask me for 4D numbers… haha…
2) I drink coffee like there’s no tomorrow, since I started schooling in K1. My father will bring my elder sister and I to the coffee shop for breakfast before sending us to our kindergarten classes, and the breakfast will always consist of a kueh + a cup of kopi gao. And since, the tradition of coffee every breakfast just continued all the way till today. There’s a constant supply of freshly brewed coffee at home and as I grew older, I drink more and more. Now its at least 3 - 5 cups a day, and I’m dying of caffeine poisoning some day.
**By the way Im trying very hard to reduce for the past month. I cap at 2 cups a day. Healthy? heh…
3) Mummy asked me what my sister and I wanna be when we grew up (i remembered that scene vividly. I was wearing my kindergarten uniform, sitting at the table waiting for lunch and DRINKING COFFEE). My sister said that she wants to be a Fashion Designer. Mummy happy. I replied, “I wanna be a Garang Guni.”
4) Although my blog’s layout is so super girly pink, my favourite colour is blue. My wardrobe’s made up mainly of blues and Im easily drawn to the colour. There’s this particular shade of blue that Dear used to call it “my colour”, and he would take a second look if there’s a girl wearing that colour on the street to see if its me.
5) I’m very petite. Actually petite is an understatement. Haha. Im standing at 155cm ( I still thinks that Im 153cm but the doctor insist otherwise…) and weighs 35 kg. I haven’t grown a single bit since my last fitness record in my primary school report book. I’ve got a couple of readers who emailed me or left a comment for me telling me that they saw me outside, and was really surprised that Im so small. Hahaha… Ya I am. Sometimes I do hope that Im a little bigger so that I can buy clothes easily! Besides that, Im so used to my “littleness” that im quite comfortable in my own skin… hehehe….
Oh im not anorexic……I totally enjoy nice food.
6) I dunno what to write already…. Errr…..
I kept very short hair for a couple of years in Secondary school. I was from a girls’ school and I’ll get little love notes and presents from my juniors. My mum was so worried that I wasn’t straight. (I’m not homophobic!
) I only started keeping a bob hairstyle when I was a little older. My secondary school doesn’t allow us to keep long hair, and everyone looks alike…. zzzzz….
7) I play the drumset in the school band, and had my own rock band group too! But I’ve since became very rusty. I did a performance about 2 months back (and realized how rusty I am…zzzz…). I always say that Im going to pick it up again but once people start working, its very difficult to find time and energy to do it.
Im going to do it someday okie!! hehehe….
I was from the Dance Club too. We did modern dance in JC and I enjoy dancing a lot! Now? The only place I dance in are the clubs…. hahaha…
9) My parents were hawkers and they used to sell Duck Rice and Kway Chap. I know it was a back-breaking job but they never once complained and tried to provide the best for my sister and me. I used to helped out at the store as a little child serving food (my mental sums improved dramatically from the payment and how much change I had to return!) and clearing tables. I miss those times! I remember doing my homework on the oily tables when there were no customers and playing with the other stall-holders children bare feet!
10) Im typing this and watching Channel V at the same time and Jolin Tsai’s MV popped up. Oh yes I like her! And I secretly wants to do plastic surgery to get her figure and her nose! hahaha…. But Dear Dear says no, and ask me not to be bo liao…
I’ll just do my braces instead….asap.
11) I keep a very cute and fat rabbit named 施可乐 now. He’s a wonderful company and friend (I talk to him all the time…oops…) and he knows my deepest secrets and I insist that he understands, Haha. He’s a very special rabbit who knows how to play catching with me and will look at where I am and sits beside me quietly when Im watching TV. He DEMANDS to be patted by sticking out his head. Oh, and he’s allowed to roam the house freely when Im at home because he has his own toilet and he’s toilet trained!! When Im outside, I don’t keep him inside a cage either, its too small and restrictive. He has a big 6-pcs playpen to play in. I LOVE KELE.
12) Im very messy and no matter how hard I try to keep a place neat, it will never be. Im getting better, at least my table at my workplace is not as messy as before. Its actually neat! My place is still uber messy, and it doesn’t help much that there’s no one to nag at me and Mark is equally messy. Hahaha….
13) Im more a night person than a morning person. I focus and concentrate better at night and Im quite a zombie in the day. But the world just isn’t fair to people like us because everything seems to be in place for the day people. Hahahaha….Look, school and work all happens in the daytime. Of course there are night shift jobs but those are not suitable for me. I love what Im doing now, except for the fact that I’ve to wake up really early. On days when I don’t have to work, I reverse my night and day…. I said its unfair right, why? All shopping centers or any other place are all close by the time Im ready to go out. Zzzzz…….
14) I’m one of the very lucky children in Singapore because I’ve never had tuition befor from K1 to University. My parents trust my sister and I a lot and left us to handle our own studies. I spent my whatever free time I had after schooling and homework playing with my neighbours and we were allowed to run around the neighbourhood playing, without a care in the world. How many children get to do that during childhood? Very few in Singapore I think. Of course there are pros and cons to that la…..
15) I left this to the last because I think this is the weirdest — Im afraid of mangoes. Not afraid as in I’ll scream when I see one but I wont eat it or smell it or touch it if possible. It stinks so badly!!
After finishing this 15 facts, I realized that Im such a uninteresting and boring person, because I took days to finish this post, because there’s just nothing about me that’s interesting to write on…hahahaha….
A couple of days ago, I was invited to Body Wellness at Winsland House to enjoy a customized facial and I’ll have to say that its a really pleasant experience!
The reception area
A short introduction to Body Wellness first. Body Wellness is a well established company in Singapore and has been around since 1997. (Wow…14 years! You really don’t have to worry about Body Wellness shutting down like other spas after you paid for your package. They’ve been around since you were a kid and that says something right!) One of the leaders in the local spa industry, they provide quality services, products and customer service at a fair and reasonable price. They have a couple of outlets in Singapore and the biggest being the one at Winsland House (Just next to Orchard Central, very convenient) with 40 over rooms inside.
I was shown around the place by Sifang, a very sweet lady who explained everything in detail to me. Wow, Im quite impressed by the facilities and services available there! Besides facial, they also offer services like bust-enhancements, relaxing massages, rejuvenating spa therapies and even slimming treatments! All-in-one… so convenient isn’t it.
Their product display shelf
Heading right into the individual rooms
The Rest and Relax corner.
For customers to read or rest (or do whatever you like…) while waiting.
Can you see it? There’s foot spa too!
The Vanity Room
Sorry for this badly taken photo…
Anyway, this is an important room to have. Really.
After facial or spa treatments, your hair is flat, and you are makeup-less. But, you are not at home… you are still outside! Its really important that they offer a place for us ladies to touch up a little, comb our hair a little. There are even hair dryers and hair styling products available for us to use so that we won’t be walking around town with flat flat hair!
There are also the Hydro Bath rooms and Spas but I didn’t take any photos to protect the privacy of the ladies doing treatment there!
So Sifang introduced me to my very beautiful and friendly beautician, Peggy!
Peggy! She’s really nice!
The treatment I was going to undergo is the Olinda Facial. This facial treatment is exclusively available at Body Wellness. Olinda Facial Treatment is all about intelligent skin care treatment where it supports the skin functions at optimum level and supplies necessary nutrients to where the skin need. Regular Olinda facial restores the skin’s perfect condition by reducing fine lines and wrinkles, improving skin firmness, lightening complexion and diminishing unwanted marks.
But we’ll ask, “Everyone has different needs and different kinds of skin, isn’t it?”
To cater to our diverse differences, Olinda Facial can be FURTHER customised and your consultant will do a skin profiling and analysis for you before she starts on anything!
And so… here I go! Peggy looked at my skin condition and decided that its best for me to do a more hydrating treatment for dry skin.
The room I was in. Convenient. I can just put my belongings in the cabinet on the left side. I like the dim lights and the cozy atmosphere! Very relaxing!
First, I lay down and was made to relax further with aromatherapy and a light massage. I went straight after work and boy, I felt relaxed and at ease immediately. Peggy went on to do the full treatment for me and she was very detailed and explained every single thing she did for me. I especially love the massage! The shoulder massage was really good and relieving for my uber stressed up muscles. And Peggy has got such magical hands — The pressure is always just right, never too painful nor does it pull my skin. And needless to say, I fell deep asleep by the time I was on the last collagen mask….. Till I heard Peggy turning the door knob to enter. Did she hear me snoring away? hahahaha….
I headed straight to the ladies and the Vanity Room to touch up a little before heading out to the reception area. I was scrutinizing my face in mirror… Not bad! Less clogs, very hydrated and supple… goodbye dried, prune face! I’ll show you the close-ups later.
Before saying goodbye to the very patient Peggy! Hahah… I still look sleepy!
I had only a little BB powder and eyeliner on, no photoshop at all! clean and supple face!
After facial photos, ZERO photoshop ok…
After facial. Notice there aren’t any redness or blotchiness, and neither was my face dry and dull. It glows!
Fringe pinned up to show you my eyebrows.
Peggy shaped my eyebrows for me and she told me mine’s really messy! Hahaha… I have to agree with her. I always do the shaping myself and I’m pretty bad at it. I think I should just leave it to the professionals next time.
The most important thing I want to show you in the above photos was my laugh lines. They are so so much diminished! I only discovered the tightening and lifting effect while I was taking these photos. Its really amazing!! Just the thing I need! Remember to tell your consultant your concerns when you head there and Im so sure they will be addressed! Just like mine!!!! Happy~~~
I so happy with the results of the Olinda Facial. Im so happy that Im willing to put up a pic that shows my dirty mirror… hahahahahaha….
Verdict: Highly Recommended. ***** (not that my words are censored…. it just meant 5 stars…)
And to thank you for finishing reading my post, I’ve got something for you!
Body Wellness offers and exclusive promotion for all my readers:

Bought 2 pairs of nice shoes when I went shopping with the girls on Friday.
Oxford heels! Not in the boring brown or black!
I commented for it when I saw it at Odorikoya but didn’t receive an invoice, so I guess they must be out of stock already. But I actually saw it at a brick and mortar shop on Friday and grabbed it when they have my size. The shop is selling at $29! Cheap ah…
*credits to Odorikoya*!*
Im not sure what to pair it with but thinks that this combi is so cute. I’ve got socks… many many of them im fact… I’ll try it next time!
Super chunky wedges.
I bought it from the same shop and it was actually retailing at $35, but since its the last pair in size 35, the very nice sales guy said he would sell it to me at the same price as the Oxford Heels. $29!
Wore it out for 2 days running already!
There were so many photos… really many… so I just picked some, and made sure that I’ve got everyone in here!
Vincent as the Living Dead! He told us he went to his mum to ask for some makeup… hahaha… But he’s so game!!
and we went walking around Vivocity looking for dinner before we headed for our party…. and got many people staring….
Tristine’s scar was realy realistic…. and I think you can’t tell from this photo… its actually very 3-dimensional…. The scar looked like it was open and the skin and flesh was dangling!!
The very glamourous couple… I think they have have passed away in a ballroom massacre…
We headed to Dragonfly and there!! Dear Dear’s working hard while we played hard…. oops….
3 very beautiful ladies!! Love Myrelle’s bunny suit!
Wa Zai, me and Dear Dear!
Errmm…. i think i wasn’t supposed to smile?? hahaha…
My red nails look like red fangs or not?
My buddy of 22 years and counting!!
Look at the corset I was wearing! It was all laced up from behind and I had a very difficult time trying to tie it nicely by myself! The whole corset was very inflexible and there’s no way I could tie it in front and turned it behind after that. I really struggled so hard before I could leave the house….. *(&^%$#%^&…… And..It was so body defining that I couldn’t dance very much….!@#$%^&*(…….
The 2 ladies were really tall and they had to lower themselves to accommodate me… oops….
How cool is this? Fire mishap… roasted till black…
Pretty Pilot Sansan!
The pilot caused a bad plane crash… I think it must have been a terrible ordeal for Vincent….
The musicians and singers!
My favourite of the night! Lao Fu Zi!
Construction site mishap…
dancing dancing… I was trying to mimick Nick’s every move… ahahahhaha…. but the corset is restrictive leh!

With so many hair styling products up on the shelves in the shops, you are not sure which one to choose? Which one is suitable for your hairstyling needs? Curls? Straight? Not sure? Then you are facing the same problems like I did.
But not anymore…. Cos Liese came to my rescue with their full range of hairstyling and hair care products!
Hmm… So how do we pronounce “Liese”?
Let’s do it right this time…
Come… read it together with Miss Xiaoxin…..”Lee-Zay”!!!
Its “Lee-Zay”! So you won’t feel unsure, or embarrassed anymore when you are asking the sales person for it!
I’m going to introduce 2 of Liese’s hair styling products in my post today and the first one is
Liese Juicy Shower
Liese Juicy Shower gives hair a boost of moisture wherever, whenever. The hair mist is formulated with moisturizing raspberry extract to quench dry hair and smoothen out frizziness. The best thing? The light raspberry scent that it leaves in your hair.
I always like to go out with a neat mane of hair, rather than the messy hair that accompanies after a long, hard day at work. Whatever styling I did in the morning is gone, hair is out of shape, and the air-conditioner blasting in the office made my hair messy and frizzy again. Liese Juicy Shower is a convenient styling product to have on hand in this kind of situations. Spray it on for added moisture, restyle your hair, and viola! Nice, neat and most importantly…. I’m smelling nice and fresh like a raspberry, even after a long day at work!
I took this photo on Friday evening at Dempsey. It was a girly gathering after work. Nice neat hair! I added a little Liese Clear Cube Wax 02 to define my fringe and a braided hairband to accessorize!
I’ve decided to keep a bottle of Liese Juicy Shower at home, and one in the office!
Liese Clear Cube Wax 02
Use Clear Cube Wax 02 if you are looking for non-sticky and manageable hair for a smooth and neat style. If you are looking for one with very strong styling and holding power, you should choose 05 or 06. You can refer to the website for the different styling power. I’ll include the link below.
I chose 02 because a large majority of us have got straight hair, and sometimes, we do not know what to do with it. Clear Cube Wax 02 adds moisture, defines the lines of my hair and its very easy to use when you want a fuss-free day. Another plus point for me… Its non-sticky. After applying, my hair is still soft, not hard or sticky, no waxy smell too…. loves!!
How to use these 2 products? I’ve included a step by step hair tutorial for you with Liese Juicy Shower and Clear Cube Wax 02. A simple hairstyle that anyone (even me!) can achieve! So here goes!
This is me with zero styling products on! Messy!!
Step 1: Spray in Liese Juicy Shower on your entire crown of glory and smooth it onto your hair gently. Comb through hair gently with your fingers. Frizziness is reduced dramatically!
Step 2: Take a little bit of Clear Cube Wax 03 to apply to different sections of your hair that needs more definition.
Ta-da! Compare this photo to the first photo! Both are straight hair but This is so much neater! The first one looked like a lion head!
But its not finished yet! Its quite boring to head out like that sometimes?
So Step 3: Add your favourite accessories!
Add a pretty hairband with big stones! Be loud!
Hmm? Still a little frizzy on the hair ends? Smooth it down and define the lines with a little more of Clear Cube Wax 03.
Prefer to be a little sweeter? Add a denim polka-dots bow clip!
Very very easy hairstyles to be achieve with styling products and hair accessories. So stop running around with messy hair already Xiaoxin!
Another one for you….
The easiest hairstyle for girls is the standard ponytail. But because I got very fine hair there tend to be a lot of hair breakage and hence when I tie up my hair, the short hair left behind after the breakage will be “standing up”, poking out in sedia position. What to do?
A side ponytail… a twist to the normal ones you have behind your head!
Smooth down the flyaways and sedia position little hair with some Clear Cube Wax too! Easy peasy!!!
Be creative even though you have stick straight hair. Take care of it, add texture and definitions and Liese’s range of hair styling products! And don’t forget to get creative with accessories!
