Not too long ago, i attended Luxasia's Pajama Party at Naumi Hotel. Luxasia is the leading distributor of world-renown fragrance and beauty brands in Singapore. They carry products from brands such as Guerlain, Marc Jacobs fragrance, Stila and of course Burberry Beauty, Perricone MD and StriVectin.
The concept of the Pajama party was to teach us how to achieve radiant skin through a restful night. Yoga moves were taught to us, and it was interesting to note that Yoga moves do not necessarily require you to contort your body in ways that look painful! Something as simple as rocking in a fetal position can help the body to relax and prepare our minds for sleep. Insomnia is a rising and common issue for Singaporeans, so this was definitely helpful for many.
When your body gets ample uninterrupted rest, it shows on your face. At night, it's the best time for the skin to soak up all the goodness in your skincare, so 2 skincare brands were introduced to compliment our night routine.
We were first introduced to Perricone MD Acyl-Glutathione Eye Lid Seum (S$194 for 15ml). This product is meant to fight the visible signs of accelerated skin aging along the upper eyelid. The Acyl-Glutathione Eye Lid Seum delivers a stable and readily accepted Glutathione derivative to the skin, resulting in visible improvements to the eyelid and presents a more youthful, awakened appearance.
Benefits inculde dramatic tightness and firmess of a droppy eyelid, a smoothing of creases and minimized redness and dark circles. It is also said that the light and fast absorbing texture of this serum also works well as a primer to help makeup glide on more smoothly and increases it's wear throughout the day. I'll test this under my eye makeup and let you know the results soon? The texture of this product feels a tad too watery for my liking, as i prefer eye creams, but the claims look promising.
Next up is the revolutionary multi-tasking Chia Serum (S$127 for 30ml), also from Perricone MD. This serum is made with rare extracts of chai oil and fat-soluble essential vitamins. Meant for all age groups, this product can be used to:
- deliver superior nourishment and hydration through rich Omega 3 fatty acids
- condition the skin and protects it against oxidative damage
- Infuse the skin with vitamins for health and vitality
- smoothe fine lines and leaves skin baby soft
It has a soothing and light crushed herbal scent. Chia oil is one of the richest vegetable source for Omega 3 fatty acids and helps the skin to fight against signs of aging. Despite being called an "oil", the actual product is not greasy, and feels very light. You can use it:
- on it's own as a serum
- mix it together with your moisturizer for extra hydration
- use it a face primer before applying makeup
- pat it onto your face throughout the day to refresh your skin.
Perricone MD products are available at Escentials at Tangs Orchard, Escentials at Paragon, Escentials at The Shoppes at MBS, Metro Paragon, Robinsons at The Centrepoint, Robinsons at Raffles City, Robinsons at MBS and Sephora.
Another skincare brand we were introduced to was StriVectin. Now i remember seeing this brand around Sephora while i was in USA and Canada, and it had a very clinical and professional look about it. This Strivectin-WH Photo-White Night Cream (S$120 for 50ml), is developed for those who are looking for more translucent, even-tone skin witb less pigmentation. With its proprietary accelerator NIA-114, the Strivectin-WH Photo-White Night Cream will minimize the apperance of dark spots and discolourations so that the complexion looks brighter, more radiant, more even-toned and most importantly, more youthful!
A rich and deeply hydrating night cream, it feels luxurious on the skin and sinks in like a dream!
Strivectin-WH Photo-White Night Cream is exclusively available at Sephora, Metro Paragon, Escentials at Tangs Orchard and Robinsons.
Next, was a makeup demo with Burberry Beauty. The focus of the look was to create a fresh-faced appearance in less than 5 minutes! Using the Fresh Glow, a sheer tinted fluid as a foundation, Lip Mist as a lipstick and cream blusher, Eye Definer to line the eyes and dab a little Sheer Concealer under the eyes and voila, you're ready to go!
The ladies from Burberry were all stunning and even though it was a Pajama Party, they were all glammed-up!
The beautiful fresh-faced model, whom alas, was captured in an Unglam photo by me. But the look was really easy to do, and done so fast that i can see myself doing it in the wee hours of the morning before i have to rush off the work at 6.30 am!
