Louis Vuitton Sunglasses


So here are some shots of my second collaboration with Louis Vuitton. After styling their bags and apparels a few months back, this time around I got the chance to work on their awesome sunglasses. I personally picked my top 3 Louis Vuitton Sunglasses and had this photoshoot done with the one and only Advan Matthew at the JimBARan Outdoor Lounge - Intercontinental Jakarta a few weeks ago. Well, just like everybody says, you can never go wrong with an awesome pair of sunglasses ;)

Chaste


The outfit that I wore to my boyfriend's birthday last week, chaste set from the new fashion label in town, Elsbeth Couture by Elisabeth Chandra. Having launched just a few months ago with their very first collection, I gotta say that Elsbeth Couture is definitely one label to keep an eye on. In case you're still wondering, you can check their collection here, I'm sure most of you will love it since they have so many nice and lovely pieces. Oh yeah, I'm really looking forward to their next collection ;)

Skin Inc - My daily dose

I know I know, I'm so sorry for the late review post about Skin Inc products, but here it is, the secret behind a nice and glowing facial skin *scroll scroll*


You know it's really rare for me to do a review on skin care products, in fact this is my very first time reviewing them. The reason? I won't let myself blog something that is not recommended, especially skin care products because I know how important and crucial it is to have the right one.

I confess that I used to have so many skin care products to put on my face every morning and night in order to have a nice skin, not forgetting all the treatments and such. And yes it worked but then as time passes by, I find it very tiring and I realized that I wasted quite a lot of my time doing this routine over and over again until recently, precisely when I went to Singapore to attend Skin Inc press conference.


So, I've been using their products esp the personalized serum ever since and I gladly say that it works much better than using layers and layers of my previous skin care products (I can feel my skin is getting more plump and softer now) because the Skin Inc serums that I use have all the components that my skin really needs. How? I got my skin identity checked beforehand to know what serums I should/shouldn't use. The three needed serums then mixed into just ONE magic daily dose bottle for my everyday use, how efficient is that :)

And the three serums in my daily dose bottle are:
1. Repair French Pine Bark Serum
Extracted from the bark of French coastal pine, this super anti-oxidant is 350 times more effective than Vitamin C and 170 times more powerful than Vitamin E. It is combined with EGF, a protein found naturally in skin that increases DNA synthesis and cell growth that moisturises the skin and reduces the signs of ageing skin.

2. Reinforce Ceramide Serum
Contains 4 different types of ceramides to reinforce the skin's protective barrier. This prevents dehydration of the skin and protects it from external stimuli such as chemicals, dry air and UV rays. This serum can also be used to relieve the symptoms of eczema.

3. Replenish Hyaluronic Acid Serum
Able to hold 6 litres of water per gram, hyaluronic acid binds moisture to skin for instant, lasting hydration from within. Lines are refined and skin is plump and smooth.


You can also customize your own daily dose simply by taking the skin identity test (www.iloveskininc.com/skincheck) where you'll be asked several questions based on your daily lifestyle and unique skin condition; and voila, the test result will show you the serums that your skin really needs. The fun part is, you can mix the serums in your favorite daily dose bottle! Oh lovely.

And here's the 3 simple steps to wake up with a beautiful skin in the morning that I learned from watching the video in Skin Inc's beauty clinique, so exciting! You can also see the video tutorial on Sonia's youtube page ;)


1. Pure revival peel
Apply to dry and clean face. Leave on for 10 seconds, then massage in circular motion. Rinse with luke warm water. Use it 2 - 3 times a week.


2. My daily dose serum
Daily use. Mine contains of french pine bark serum, reinforce ceramide serum and hyaluronic acid serum. Don't forget to get your skin identity checked first before customizing your own daily dose.


3. Pure deepsea hydrating mask
For a bright and plump skin, I use this one almost everyday. How to use: Spread a thin layer of the mask after applying the first and second step, then leave on for 30 minutes. For even better results, leave on overnight. Rinse off with water or scrape off with a smooth spatula.

Yup, that easy and simple. No more waking up very early in the morning to get ready and sleep late at night ;)

Also note that all Skin Inc products DO NOT contain parabens and scent so it's safe and allergic free.


Two words for Skin Inc: MAJOR LOVE <3


You can get these awesome products at Skin Inc concept stores, speciality store and Sephora in Singapore, or online at www.iloveskininc.com and soon at Sephora in Jakarta ;)
