Your Men Deserves Better, Vacation Essentials & Upcoming Giveaway

After a tiring day, I came home to A Facial Fuel “Energizing” Box from KIEHL’S and it says “Your men deserve better” on the parcel. So, I guess it’s not for me eh?

With over 50 years of experience in men’s skincare, Kiehl’s is proud to introduce their latest addition to the family of men’s Facial Fuel Collection this August. The addition includes – Sky Flyin’ Foaming Multi-Gel, a versatile dual-action formula that serves effectively as a foaming gel shave cream and a cleanser and “No-Shine” Hydrator, a breakthrough solution that uses “Micro-sponge” technology to help control shine and sweat, while providing 24-hour hydration.

In celebration of these new launches, Kiehl’s has also included the Fighter Toy Plane and racing with the all-time favourite Hot Wheels Toy Car in commemoration of their founding member, Mr. Aaron Morse’s passion for flying acrobatic stunt airplanes, racing cars and riding vintage motorcycles – all of which he collected and eventually displayed at the Kiehl’s stores to “entertain” their male patrons.

Take a petite trip to tropical paradise with Ettusais’ latest offerings.

Ettusais has released an array of mini nail colours inspired by resort vacations. Made for a summer’s use, pick from vivid, glittery or pearlescent hues, stash them in your luggage and leave space for some holiday shopping too.

The Vacances Nails are available in 12 shades, each bottle contains 2ml of product and retails at only S$5 – new and limited.

Product specifications:

  • Dries quickly
  • Coats nails smoothly & evenly
  • Shiny & glossy finish
  • Formulated with natural treatment ingredients & is toluene-free
  • Fragrance-free

  • Sunset in Phuket
  • Rio’s Carnival
  • Hawaiian Hibiscus
  • Neon in Miami
  • Jamaican Café Time

These nail polishes are excellent for travels or great for summer if you want to try bright colours but don’t want to splurge on them – like bright yellow, blue, green or white. They are also very handy for doing nail art at home. I would recommend checking out Jamaican Café Time, it’s a lovely metallic copper.

Besides the mini nail polishes, Ettusais has reformulated their Gel Top Coat N – a quick-drying clear top coat that creates glossy nails that look like gel nail done at a nail salon. No UV light required and no soak-off needed.

I am a huge fan of their Gel Top Coat N, it’s clear and applies neatly onto the nails. On several occasions, many people, even my nail technician asked if those were gel nails. However, the previous version of the top coat tends to crack after 2-3 days and the reformulated version promises to have improved that – shall try soon.

Product specifications:

  • Creates a plumper, glossier finish
  • Has a longer lasting finish
  • Dries smooth, even if base colour applied is uneven
  • Dries quickly
  • Formulated with a natural treatment ingredient
  • Fragrance-free

Following the success of their beige colour gel top coat earlier this year, Ettusais has released the pink version – Gel Color Coat (PK), new and limited, retails at S$24 for 9ml of product.

The Foamy Rich Mousse is another new item Ettusais launched recently. Some of you may have seen my mention in My Skincare Routine [Day] entry and I am enjoying it.

The Foamy Rich Mousse is a 5-in-1 product. It acts like a makeup remove, cleansing foam, facial mask, you can use it to massage and it’s gentle on the skin. In Japan, spas use rich foam as a form of aesthetic treatment. It has an elastic bouncy film formula and microscopic micro mousse.

Product specifications:

  • Spongy, rich foam with excellent elasticity
  • Rich foam that does not require double cleansing yet exerts the desired cleansing effect
  • Spongy, rich foam that can be used as a mask or massage
  • Formulated with moisturizing ingredients
  • Prevents acne
  • Non-comedogenic formula, dermatologist-tested

A study also shows that we feel happy while massaging with spongy, rich foam. Foamy Rich Mousse - a skincare that makes us feel happy?

Sometime last month, Origins held an intimate blogger’s session at the Privé Café. We had a lovely and cosy corner all to ourselves. This meet up was to introduce their new additions for their Plantscription™ Anti-Aging Skincare Range. The new extension includes a cleanser, treatment lotion and eye cream (richer in texture for those with dryer under eye area).

To learn more about the range, you may want to check out this post for more details and information.

It’s giveaway time again. Origins has kindly sponsored 3 sets of three items from their successful Plantscription™ Anti-Aging Skincare Range for you. Look out for a post about the giveaway tomorrow morning. I am very excited as I get to share one of my favourite eye creams with you.

Stay tuned.

Thank you for reading.

  1. Hi Joey,

    I have tried the Foamy Rich Mousse from Ettusais too. And I really love it!
    It works wonder on my sensitive skin. It takes off the light make up pretty well and leave my skin clean and not tight.
    This cleanser is definitely making its way to my HG cleanser.
    Also, I picked this cleanser after reading your skincare routine entry, and I really love it.
    Thank you for sharing! :)
