[Review] Sisley Paris | Phyto-Blanc Brightening Daily Defence Fluid SPF50 PA++++

High level pollution, UV radiation and free radicals impact our skin more than we realised, even more so if we are living in the urban areas. Environmental stresses of such will weaken our skin and this can cause dark spots, pigmentation and uneven complexion over time. We have to confess, we have always dreaded putting on sun block due to its thick consistency and stickiness, some even leave traces of white patches on the skin. Our dark spots and pigmentation was developed way back when we trained for our tennis competition during our university days, right under the scorching hot sun! Believe it or not, we never slathered on any trace of sun protection (yucks!). Thinking back, it was way too gullible of us not knowing better.

Today, we would love to take some time to share with you one sunscreen protection we have come to love of late, a lot. It would be this one from Sisley Paris, the Phyto-Blanc Brightening Daily Defence Fluid SPF50 PA++++. It arrived together with another new surprise from this French brand previously.

[FACES] The Thinking Hair Creator, Marcus Chin of The Soloist Salon

Fell in love with all things related to hair for more than 10 years now, his love affair has grown even stronger these days with the forming of The Soloist Hair Salon with his other two founding partners, Nicholas Chua and Eewen Yap. Marcus Chin loves cutting and colouring most now, as he feels these two elements go hand-in-hand and they are areas that give him the most satisfaction in terms of creativity. He has found his calling and confidence in the hair industry. He loves cooking and would not mind to invite you for a meal or two some day. We caught up with him recently to get to know more about this talented hairstylist and try to find out what makes him tick and what pushes him in the hairdressing business today. 

Born in 1987 and grew up in Seremban, Marcus has always been a somewhat hyperactive teenager who seemed to give teachers headaches even though he scored wonderfully in his comprehension but just could never get good grades as expected from his teachers. Seen as being relatively naughty, a troublemaker with a mix of street smart, in the eyes of the teachers and peers, he was destined for other things in life besides studying. One thing stood out though, he always loved to style his hair in a particular way and often got the attention of his friends. Naturally, Marcus thought that perhaps his interest would eventually be in hairstyling. 

It was confirmed much later through an incident in school which this young hairstylist-in-the-making was destined to walk down the path that he is now walking - when he had to help cut and fix a friend's hair which was ruined by the teacher's carefree way of cutting due to punishment. Marcus very first hair cut in his life was done in a boys' school toilet back then, as a favour for his friend to "rescue" and "salvage" his bad hair. Even then, he came to realise he still could not find his real purpose in life.

[Review] Dior Prestige Le Nectar de Teint Foundation & Diorskin Nude Air Luminizer Powder, The One That Stole Our Heart

We have been having quite an affair with Dior for some time now and this time around, we are delighted (though terribly embarrassed by our lateness) to share with you another two of our Dior love - a foundation from the Dior Prestige family and a shimmering powder that we could not say no to (unfortunately, it took us this long to get to it that this limited edition highlighting powder is no longer available, but one can always find her equally enchanting partners within the same family here! No, you are not too late). Yes, we are that Dior gal who adore these little luxury ever so enthusiastically that it feels a tad guilty, but in the most beautiful harmless way *_^ Come with us and dive into the luxurious world of Dior beauty, will you?
