Review: Sothys Exclusive Black Box

Monday, December 21, 2015

Hello! Black Box has sent me yet another exciting exclusive box, the Sothys Exclusive pack.

I have seen this brand around high end facial boutiques and spas but i've only ever tried one product from their extensive range of products! I can't remember for sure since that was a few years back when i was working in the beauty line but I think it was a body scrub or something? 

I remembered that the scent was quite classic and the product worked pretty well but I did not repurchase because of the slightly high end price tag and also the fact that it wasn't readily available everywhere. You know that saying, out of sight, out of mind. hahaha 

SOTHYS Cherry Blossom & Lotus Escape Shower Cream (30ml)
SOTHYS Cherry Blossom & Lotus Escape Body Scrub (30ml)

I brought this two body products along with me to use during our trip to Seoul, that soft and gentle scent of the Cherry Blossom is so yummy! It wasn't too over the top feminine for Leon so - no complains about the scent hehe the body scrub was quite gentle on the skin but yet it seems to effectively slough off the dead skin and we loved how smooth our skin was!

Since it was quite cold and windy during our trip the shower cream really kept our skin hydrated even when we didn't use any body lotions throughout the trip, so basically it was pretty much a two in one product for us and it worked out really well since we did not have to pack an extra tub of lotion hehehe, save us some luggage space for our shopping!

SOTHYS Hydration Kit (3 pcs pack)

This 3 pcs hydration pack comes with Hydra3Ha™ Intensive Hydrating Serum, Hydra3Ha™ Hydrating Gel-Cream and Hydra-smoothing Mask.

For Leon's dry skin it didn't felt hydrating enough for him but for my combi skin it felt quite good, I used that hydrating serum and gel-cream as a day moisturizer and it didn't feel too greasy/too drying.

I tried the mask during the night and washed it off after 20 minutes and my "smile lines" seems to be slightly smoother, but I guess the effects will probably last longer with constant use.

Review: Etude House Exclusive Black Box

Friday, December 04, 2015


I'm so excited to review the latest Exclusive Black Box, this time they have collaborated with Etude House to bring us a box of must-try products. 

I always get drawn into Etude House stores because of the princess-y look of their stores (at this point i will hear the hubbay sighing when i drag him into the store hahaha), plus their products are always so adorable and affordable so you don't feel any heartache even if you buy LOTS of products from them at one go, haha which is totally possible because who doesn't love everything cute and girly?!

I have their flamingo eyebrow trimmer that is so cute and i use it almost everyday to clean up my brow area, it makes me kinda happy when i see it everyday cos it's so cute. hahaha the point is that i really love Etude House!
Honestly I've not tried the Etude house BB creams and cushions because there's is so many types and I never know which one to buy so this is the perfect kit for me. Hehe so this comes just in time for me, I get to try first and got the full sizes when I was in Korea last week! Score! :D

Precious Mineral Any Cushion in W13

I have tried 2 base cushion so far, the Laneige pore control & Innisfree Long Wearing Cushion, yes there are both for oily skin which is more suitable for combination skin like mine, I've always wanted to try Etude's house but never gotten around to try it but this little tester is so ADORBS!! 

Look at the mini cushion! Hahahaha pat this on and you will definitely have that glowy skin you've always wanted. The coverage is surprisingly quite good with this cushion even though now I'm breaking out quite a bit but I'm still able to cover the blemish pretty easily with this cushion.

You can see in the above pic i have a little red scar on my knuckle and below i have pat on a little of the Precious Any Cushion and it covers up the redness nicely and gives a glowy finish!

I tried it on my face today when i went to the dentist and i was pleasantly surprised to see that after  couple hours it didn't crease or really cake up on the side of my nose/smile lines which is a norm for me usually. Yup, needs no further explanation, this is also one of my many loots in Korea, I’ve gotten so many of them and I guess this very much will last me for years!

Precious Mineral BB Cream Kit

This is also my first time trying the precious mineral BB cream(s)! 

They all have this really nice light scent that's not overpowering at all *thumbs up*
Similar to most BB creams in the market, they have SPF 30 PA++ in them, any protection from the harmful UV rays is always good and a MUST!

Blooming fit gives this more glowy watery look, probably more suited for girls with dry/normal skin type, the Cotton Fit is great for combi skin like mine, it helps with coverage for huge pores and spreads on real nicely I like that it dries to a nice matte finish as well. 

After trying all 3 of them, I know I’ve found my winner! Perfect fit seems to give me the best finish! It doesn't leave any sticky feel yet it looks slightly glowy yet provide pretty good coverage, all in that little tub! Seems like I've found my winner and I know which bb cream to get in Korea next week!

Wonder Pore Special WOW Kit

I was actually using this Wonder Pore special wow kit when I was staying in Taiwan for my Makeup Artist course earlier this year during summer! I have run out of my usual skincare and I've gotten the kit when I was shopping at etude house for my favourite Kissful Lip Choux (I've worn this lip tint in Shade 1 for the past few years and I've always gotten compliments, best lip tint ever!!) 

How it looks like on my lips, I love love love it!

I've even used this lip tint on some of my brides who request for the korean bridal look for their actual day makeup too because it looks so sweet and "juicy" and yet it last forever yet feels so light on their lips with no sticky feel whatsoever.  

So back to the Wonder Pore skincare series, my favorite is the soap! It has this minty scent and it makes my oily skin feels oh soooo clean!

I use the total pore solutions only on my nose and cheek area when my pores are most visible and it gets absorbed into the skin real quick!

Age Defense Skin Care Kit

The age Defense kit comes with 3 products - the essential softener, emulsion and firming cream.

I thought the softener would be really thick and sticky but it's always quite watery and absorbs into the skin real quick, leaving skin smooth and prepped and ready for the next step.

Had some troubles getting the emulsion out since the bottle is hard and impossible to squeeze and the emulsion is too thick to be "shaken" out of the bottle too haha so I used a q tip to dig it out, again the emulsion was hydrating enough yet doesn't leave a sticky feeling, it's nice but I wonder if it will work for slightly more matured skin since this is afterall the Age Defense range.

Ahhhh ok, i guess if you use all 3 steps with the firming cream it will be hydrating enough I like that the age Defense firming cream feels rich and creamy, keeps the skin really moisturised but yet doesn't leave a sticky after feel. 

For oily skin girls, this is the most important point that we look out for when picking out a suitable range of skincare for sure!!

All in all, I think this is quite an interesting edition of the BlackBox because I'm a makeup kinda girl and I had a great time trying out the BB creams and cushion along with the skincare products!

Great news! BlackBox is doing a first 40 promo on this entire Etude House Exclusive set, and it ONLY costs $19.90 (U.P $49.90). While stocks last!

Back to my trusty Clover Hair Boutique for a change for the end of 2015!

Tuesday, November 17, 2015

Hello you!
You know, I always look forward to my hair salon appointments at Clover Hair Boutique. They did a fabulous job when I went to get my hair done for my wedding.

I actually have brides telling me that they want to dye their hair lighter for their wedding hairdo, but don't dare to because they are afraid that the salon will screw up their hair color and in the end they just don't have a salon they can go to that they trust, and I sooooo get they are coming from because hair is so so important and if you can't even trust your stylist to do a good enough job that's really sad.

And especially on your wedding day it has to be perfect right?! But black hair will sometimes look like just a lump of hair if the brides request for a intricate braid hairdo etc, i usually advice my brides to dye a lighter brown tone if they want to see the details of their hairdo to show up nicely on photos.

I decided it's time for a new color by Senior Stylist Gino. 

Previously he previously did my Violet red + Chilli Red ombre highlights which i love love love.

But I realized I've done so many reds this year!! Gooooorgeous bright ass in your face kinda red, violet red, balayage red. So I wanted a change of color tone for this end of the year!

 I had to bleach my hair twice to get all the red tones out of my hair, went to get my 1st round of bleaching on Thursday night and back on Friday for the 2nd bleaching and color wise, I've pretty much given Gino the freedom to let him do whatever he wants hahaha i have MAJOR hair envy for his cool hair color + hairdo so i know that I can trust him when it comes to color!

 So Gino was done with his color magic and a fabulous haircut by the salon Director Raymond, my hair was 10000000000x lighter and way cooler than when i stepped into Clover Hair Boutique!
 Walked out of the salon like literally 走路有风 HAHAHAHA 

I don't think I've ever done this color ever, thanks Gino, I FREAKING LOVE IT! The violet highlights really perfected the whole look. He really has great taste in these color combination man. I can't never think of up such a cool combi if it was up to me haha!

I honestly expected that my hair will be like super dry like a stack of hay after bleaching it not once but twice so we can get all the red out, but their PRO FIBRE treatment is so good! ♡ 

Exclusive discount for TheLuckiestChick Readers: 

Clover Hair Boutique will be offering TheLuckiestChick readers 
an exclusive discount of 20% off all Chemical Services by Senior Stylists, 
you can request for Gino if you're looking for a change of hair color, he's awesome!

Oh and we just booked our one year anniversary trip to Korea this Friday! Now i can have cool hair for Korea WOOTS!


So freaking excited since it's both our first time there. it was quite a last min decision so do share if you have any recommendation on places and what to eat and things to see/buy.

 Can't believe it's almost one year since #FideLeonWedding #FideLeonLuneDeMiel!

I have to admit something, i have this problem...

Monday, November 16, 2015

From being an only child, only grandchild all my life, and it is that i have issues with SHARING. I don't think it's such an uncommon with all the sole child in the world, you probably get where i'm coming from right?

All my life I've never had to share my space, my stuff and adjusting to married life and currently shacking up with ze hubbay at his parents place is definitely not easy especially when we're both the kind of people who have a shitload of STUFF. Luckily for me ze hubbay is always real nice and accommodating and always puts up with me when I throw little bitch fits at times and i reeeeeally appreciate and love him for that. :D

Can't wait till next year when our place is finally ready and we will have more SPACE!! So i'm like a total couch potato and the first thing i turn on when i always get home is the computer, like that's the first thing i want to get to when i reach home. So for the past year (has it already been one year?!) i've been sharing Leon's laptops, either using his MSI or his Razer. Both of which does not belong to me.

Yep, only child problem. I NEED to have stuff that belongs to me, only then i will feel comfortable. Sometimes he needs to use the laptop and i'm lazy to lug the razor out from the cupboard so i end up feeling awkward and stuck scrolling thru my phone because i can't use the laptop and then again i feel uncomfortable.

Hahaha this might sounds really stupid to the rest of you but it's really a huge problem for me!! hahaha I use a desktop back at my own home but there's no way i can bring it over because we have NO space and he NEEDS to have these 2 ugly huge speakers (which apparently is real great, sounds wise but because it's troublesome to operate, he literally NEVER ever uses it and yet he doesn't want to put it away until we get out new place so it's just sitting there collecting dust and taking up half the desk. Ugh)

The other day I was looking at the Macbook Air and i was like WTF why didn't i think of buying myself a laptop of my own!!! That would solve my uncomfy feeling what!!

I'm very superficial so i wanted the new 2015 Macbook which is so small, light and totally gorgeous. But Leon made me look around at my options and in the end, i got the Lenovo Yoga Pro 3, 512GB in champagne colour! Which i really did not regret choosing over the mac, honestly i don't care about specs and all, i just want something light, pretty and great to use for blogging + watching shows + shopping. Hahahaha very girly stuff. But after using this for a couple weeks now, i'm seriously LOVING it.

Yeah that is one of the 2 HUGE speakers that Leon refuses to put away so we can have more space even though he's not even using it!! Ugly ass thing that takes up way too much space. hahaha i really need to complain about it because it's so annoying!!!

This is an unfair comparison since MSI is not known for being slim or anything, but look how skinny the Lenovo Yoga Pro 3 is!!! I will mostly watch my shows in bed and have the laptop lean on my tummy/underboob area (HAHA) and i use to do this with the MSI/Razer and my tummy will literally feel like bruised or whatever!! HAHAHA such a bloody heavy piece of..

I call my new laptop the skinny bitch. 

My Skinny Bitch can do Yoga!! It can be bend and used in 3 other ways, flat/tent/tablet. Although i can't phantom why would i use it in the flat way but.. ok good to know that i can? Hahaha

Oh it's also touch screen! So even i bought the 2015 macbook i can't do that, and i love that it's in this pretty shade of champagne. (:

You better last me a long long time, Skinny Bitch. Love ya!

♡ Love, TheLuckiestChick.

[AD] Skycart, Your new BFF to help you with your TAOBAO shopping!

Friday, November 06, 2015

Skycart, the newest player in the Taobao shopping industry, has concrete strategies in place to ensure that every customer they serve will leave satisfied for their inaugural foray into the annual 11th November sale AKA 11 or 11.11

First and foremost, they have ditched the popular term “agent” and have instead branded themselves a “concierge-like personal shopper”. Who doesn't want a personal shopper?! 

They believe that agents are mere logistics solutions while to Skycart, every customer is a friend who can rely on them for style recommendations, cost savings, or even help with navigating the confusing world of Taobao.

 11.11 is THE shopping event of the year. 

Even Guinness World Records says so: 2014’s 11.11 earned USD 9.3 billion (BILLION!) in 24 hours and currently holds the titles for “individual company with the highest online retail volume in a 24-hour period” and another for “individual online retail platform that sold the most mobile phones in a 24-hour period.” During the sale, sold 1,894,867 total units of mobile phones, according to the company. 

Let me give you the low down on how to take advantage of the crazy deals from the 11.11 sale
  1. Top-up Skypay in advance.
  2. Start adding items to your cart or wishlist right now (make sure to have options and substitutes because things are gonna sell out FAST, remember to state State 11.11.2015 in the Remarks)
  3. Check out and pay way before 11 November so we have time to allocate a dedicated officer to handle your account for you.

One other unique feature in Skycart is their lack of chargeable “packing” weight.

All local Taobao agents add a 10% increment to consumer’s parcels as an estimated
weight of protective materials used. Isn't that annoying?! I've experienced this personally, paying so much extra for shipping fee for the excessive packaging for literally a teeny weenie hairpin.

Skycart did their research and discovered that majority of parcels could be securely protected without excessive padding, deemed it unnecessary charges thus effectively cutting down on your shipping fee. YAY!


Sign up for an account and RSVP to be part of limited 12,000 people who can enjoy exclusive discounts (price match with the lowest agent discount available on 11.11) with Skycart!

My braces are finally off- now gimme my pearlie whites!

Thursday, November 05, 2015


I've finally removed my braces!! 
I had like crazy messy teeth for 22 years of my life and now after 2.5 years it's finally off! :D

The very first night i came home with my braces off, the first order of business was to wear these Crest whitening strips that we ordered from previously! Obviously after 2.5 years of having those ceramic braces brackets and all that wire in my mouth, it's not possible to brush and clean your teeth properly so i really want that brilliant white smile! it doesn't make sense that i spent 4k on braces to straighten my teeth yet leaving my teeth all yellowish and eeky right?

Wow, but the very next day i saw that my tooth really looked slightly brighter but the sensitivity that i felt, was not fun. NOPE, not fun at all. 

There was these sudden pangs of pain shooting through the nerves of my tooth all day and it made me lose my appetite completely and it hurt SO BAD. And this was coming from the girl who did not feel pretty much any pain or real discomfort from wearing braces for the past 2.5 years and i'm definitely not the type who gets all whiny with a little pain.

I was thinking of what other options i had than home whitening strips, i heard the sensitivity after laser teeth whitening hurts like a total bitch too, can't vouch for that since i have never tried it personally. 

Lucky for me, Lush Aesthetics very kindly extended a sponsored session of their LED teeth whitening to me, and this treatment couldn't have come at a better time! hehehe I was grinning all the way while driving to Tanglin for my treatment after work, can't wait for them pearlie whites!

My therapist explained to me how LED whitening works, the different types of whitening gel they offer and I was totally surprised that the treatment would only take a mere 1 hour!!! Since it's only an hour, ze hubbay waiting for me at the clinic so we can go have dinner together after.

She also matched my current tooth colour with this set of tooth color scale, my upper is whiter while my lower is dramatically more stained and yellow. Eeeeeewwww!

After we're done with all that, she brought me to one of their treatment rooms, i rinsed my mouth with a mouth rinse prior to the treatment, and then therapist started to apply the whitening gel onto each and every tooth.

In every 15 minutes intervals, she came back to check on me and re-apply more whitening gel and it was another 15 mins cycle with the LED light.


After the 1 hour treatment, we did a comparison on my current teeth shade with the color chart again and it's freaking amazing! In under an hour, my tooth went 6 shades brighter for my lower teeth and 3 shades up for my upper ones  (since it was not super yellow to begin with, i did expect so)!!

Upper teeth: Before on the left, after 1 hour of treatment on the right!

Lower teeth: Before on the left, after 1 hour of treatment on the right!

Other than the short treatment time with great results, the other thing i fully appreciate is that i did not experience ANY teeth sensitivity unlike my home whitening crest strips, which was a totally killer!!

The brighten effect is suppose to last up to a year, that's if you're not a smoker/habitual tea or coffee drinker of course, if you do, you probably have to take care of your teeth more such as drinking your coffee/tea with a straw so it doesn't exactly touch/stain your teeth or use whitening mouth rinse frequently etc.

Lush Aesthetics is an award winning centre that delivers quick and effective results from quality aesthetics treatment. They have whole lot other aesthetics treatments available from face to hair and body. 
On the overall i'm crazy happy with the results and I definitely recommend the LED whitening treatment over at Lush Aesthetics!

If you want a white, brilliant smile too, Lush Aesthetics is offering a special price to TheLuckiestChick readers at $188 (U.P $999)
