Exactly one month ago, I went for a bloggers’ event and got onto a yacht that set sail from ONE°15 Marina Club. It was for the launch of a new skin supplement product called Skinbiotics.
I was quite amused to find that the bloggers who were invited were pretty and had no major skin problems.
This is me (no photoshop at all) and even with my shades on, you can tell my skin’s pretty much ok, even if I’m nowhere near Korean beauty awesomeness, yes?
So I wondered… ‘How in the world was I supposed to blog about the results of taking Skinbiotics?!’ I suspected that the ‘before’ and ‘after’ photos would turn out pretty much similar. Duh.
And then my Taipei trip came about… and after lots of walking about under the hot sun in Taipei (don’t visit now. It’s crazily HOT!) and many rounds of yummy meals, and not forgetting tasty (and oily) street snacks, I got back with less-than-perfect skin.
And I realized that there really is no room for complacency where beauty is concerned! So I’m now back to sun protection, moisturisation and supplements.
Dr David Tan shared with us bloggers that should we want to have just ONE product in our skincare regime, it should be sunblock.
Here’s mine, and I try to be diligent about using them:
And for moisturization, I LOVE the Taiwanese My Beauty Diary masks. I usually buy a selection and then store the masks in the fridge, alternating them so that I get a different mask each day (moisturization, brightening, lightening, etc).
The masks cost about S$1.45 per piece in Singapore but I bought them at about 90cents each in Taipei. Beware of fakes being sold in China, which you can purchase for only 40cents per piece!
This trick is something I picked up from a magazine interview with top models: have a different mask each day…
And finally, I’m back to taking Skinbiotics, since the company kindly sponsored two boxes of Reactiv 01 for me to try.
I don’t know about the other bloggers but I did experience mild diarrhoea symptoms on a couple of occasions after taking Skinbiotics. When I raised the issue with the PR company, the reply from the doctor was that it could be due to the high antioxidant levels present. So do watch out for this – if you get similar symptoms, do send the company your feedback! Also, those who are pregnant, breast-feeding or have a known allergy to seafood should not take Skinbiotics.
Whichever product you decide to use, always remember that where beauty is concerned, there really is no room for complacency!
It takes a lot of work to look like Fann Wong!

I’ll be blogging about my Taipei trip in a bit – there are SO many photos!
