BRAND’S® InnerShine® RubyCollagen Review

Experience collagen at its finest with BRAND'S® InnerShine® latest breakthrough innovation - RubySignatureTM formula. 

Unlike normal collagen, RubySignature™ formula is created with a unique and precious blend of ingredients derived from natural sources. It contains micro-collagen and one of mother nature’s most powerful antioxidants, astaxanthin (micro-algae extract). Scientifically proven, its anti-oxidant power is 6000 times more powerful than Vitamin C, 800 times more powerful than CoQ10 and 500 times more powerful than Vitamin E.

We all know collagen is necessary to support the skin’s structural foundation to improve firmness and elasticity for youthful and supple skin. Astaxanthin serves as the perfect complement by acting as a natural shield against the collagen-depleting procedure. In containing both micro-collagen and astaxanthin, RubySignature™ formula defies the ageing process by performing a vital triple-action of supplying collagen, protecting against collagen degradation and delivering collagen effectively to skin cells. Designed to complement your topical skincare routine - in 6 weeks, experience skin rejuvenating power with  BRAND’S® InnerShine® RubyCollagen Essence*. Daily consumption will help to ensure that your body is adequately supplied with the essential nutrients for optimal skin support and protection. For optimum efficacy, it is recommended that BRAND’S® InnerShine® RubyCollagen be consumed twice daily to experience the skin age-reversing difference in 6 weeks*.

*Results may vary according to individuals

After my recent beach getaway (more on Instagram @OYHZ), I definitely need new RubyCollagen Essence range by BRAND’S® InnerShine® even more to fight the collagen-depleting rays of the sun. 

If I had been reminded earlier, I would have brought with me a few bottles or stripes for the holiday. Still, better late than never! In order to fend of the visual signs of aging, it is necessary to not only replenish lost collagen, but also prevent further collagen degradation in the skin from occurring. Inspired by this insight, BRAND’S® InnerShine® developed RubySignature™, a formulation designed specifically to challenge the existing paradigm in anti-aging skin care.

Both packaging are rather slim and compact for slotting into our ladies bags :) This is how you could simply bring it along for a day trip or for consumption!

If you had read my previous review on the marine collagen here, I personally find that the RubyCollagen Essence suits my palate better with the more tangy taste.  BRAND’S® InnerShine® RubyCollagen Essence is infused with natural pomegranate juice that gives the invigorating and zesty flavour. Being so delicious, it is certainly an added bonus to addressing the needs of aging skin.

I had been drinking BRAND’S® InnerShine® RubyCollagen Essence for the past week and so far my skin has been recovering well from the slight sunburnt on my cheeks. The burnt cheeks didn’t turn patchy or flaky (thankfully!) and the bumps that appeared on my face right after the trip are disappearing fast. This may be the effect of the RubyCollagen Essence, coupled with the hydrating and soothing products I spammed right after I got home. Plus some deep-cleansing and exfoliating masks which I have been more diligently using too. 

According to Isabella Tan, Vice President and General Manager of Cerebos Pacific Limited Singapore, Brunei, and Philippines, “The creation of the RubyCollagen Essence range has enabled BRAND’S® InnerShine® to capitalize on an underserved realm within the anti-aging beauty space, addressing women’s needs for a more complete and holistic anti-aging skin care regimen that also nourishes from the inside out.”

There are 2 formats to RubyCollagen:

1. BRAND’S® InnerShine® RubyCollagen Essence (50ml x 12) SGD $62.90

2. BRAND’S® InnerShine® RubyCollagen Essence Strip (15g x 10): SGD $36.00

Bespoke Box Singapore - Review

It's been some time since I've gotten a beauty box. Cos I can never finish the products and samples in time before more new products come in the following month! :X They snowballed quite badly and I kinda stopped subscribing to the monthly boxes!

However, there's a monthly event which will never fail to come (and go)...and I'm sure all girls will understand. All those PMS weeks and hormonal changes that make us cranky and emotional, plus physical aches and pains to endure >.<

Now, how about a monthly kit to make this period (pun intended) more bearable? Moreover, there will be no worries about not finishing any items in the box before the next month ;) It is definitely some comfort and fun to look forward to!

I was happy to receive one from the Bespoke Box SG team in February!

What is Bespoke Box?
Bespoke Box is a premium subscription service created to help you manage the time of the month. A box of goodies will be delivered right to your doorstep a week before your period for you to enjoy. 

There are different subscription plans available – 3-months ($63), 6-months ($120), or get 15% off with a whole year plan ($228). 
There is also an one-time option ($22) to send as a gift to your friends. All prices are inclusive of free local shipping.

What’s in it?
The contents vary by month, but you may look forward to 5 items – pampering Bath and Body products, beauty products, snacks, feminine items or an art gift. All items are travel-sized or full-sized, so you can fully enjoy the products.

For the February box, we have included a Pocky snack, a Pretz snack, a specially handmade voodoo doll, a pack of Poise pantyliners, Sierra Bee’s honey lip balm and Crabtree & Evelyn hand cream. Total content worth at $37!

Check out the cute voodoo.. ;p

The crabtree & evelyn hand cream, and Sierra Bees' organic lip balm may not be that specific to our monthly woes, but hey, it's always good to treat yourself better! Furthermore, February is the month of love 

Snacking will never go wrong! Get your chocolate fix with the Pocky especially.
And some tea to go along?

Last but not least.. Liners to prep and keep yourself comfy :)

If you're interested already, here's a summary of how it works. 

Once payment is made, the Bespoke Box team will get in touch with you for your mailing particulars and preferred delivery date, to ensure your box reaches you before your period.
Sign up by 29th of the month to receive next month's box!

Use the discount code OYHZ20 for 20% off the 3-month, 6-month or 12-month plans. This code ends on 20 March 2016.
Hop over to Bespoke Box to view the past boxes!

I'm running a giveaway for a Bespoke Box on IG, see you there! :)

LIN's - Reed Diffuser and Soy Candle Review

Trying out home spa recently to relax and keep calm amidst the busy schedule. Was introduced to LIN's by Chris, an Australian brand looking to bringing nature into urbane settings.

"LIN's seeks to exude the wonders of mother earth with our natural and organic concept into your lifestyle. 

Envisioning the needs of modern living, LIN's embraces a natural and an organic concept that holistically intertwines all your senses, proffering the ultimate sensory adventure and capturing the good from the earth, transforming its beauty into a conglomerate of touches, scents and visuals.

In LIN's, you can assimilate a range of quality skin, body, hair and scented natural products with an organic interpretation of beauty into an everyday routine. Extracted from plants with selective bottling of nature, we deliver gentle, wholesome and delicate products that are the best off our soil."

I was thrilled to try the reed diffuser from LIN's home spa series.

Tilley Lily of the Valley Diffuser

The deliciously fresh, green, deep waft of Lily of the Valley makes every bathroom complete.

You would be welcomed with the scent immediately after opening the packaging. It's strong in my opinion, so would suggest using less reeds to begin with and slowly adding on according to your personal preference. But that may be because I'm pretty sensitive to scents in general. If u wan a quick diffuse of the scent, use all the given reeds, and turn them around every 3hours or so :)

Tilley Lily of the Valley Diffuser

Not just that, I had the soy candle as well!

Tilley Lily of the Valley Candle

Delicate, fresh and hypnotic, this beautiful lily of the valley candle instantly delights. Made from the finest ingredients with a slow burning lead-free cotton wick, the glowing white frosted glass container adds an elegant ambience to any décor.
This is a lighter version compared to its sister reed diffuser. The glass container looks elegant and would make a nice decor for my new house!

Tilley Lily of the Valley Candle

They have bundles promotion which you may want to check it out here!

Tilley Bath Salt + Reed Diffuser is only at $62.16 (UP $88.80)
You may mix and match any scent you want, there are more than 10 scent options available for the diffuser! :)

California Fitness FIT Start Program

Attended a personal training session at California Fitness in hopes of kick-starting an exercise regime!

As a gym beginner, I had the FIT Start program which is the most effective program to get started on the right track towards achieving your fitness goals. The FIT Start program involves a professional trainer from California Fitness who would guide one through a series of training equipment and activities, helping to develop a personalized fitness program for one.

To attend your FIT Start program, simply check-in at the Personal Training reception at your nearest California Fitness gym. If you have not booked a FIT Start training session yet, please call your preferred club and make an appointment today!

California Fitness Locations in Singapore:

Had the chance to visit the outlet situated at Ngee Ann City level 8.
Gorgeous branch :)


To begin with, we had a body assessment for our personal trainer to understand more about our fitness levels and requirements.

It was pretty fuss-free. Simply have to step on this machine and it assesses your body condition in a minute!

Here's Celine doing hers.

Now, here's my report:

If you indeed bother to zoom in and spy on my body condition, yeah I'm pretty much underweight, under-nourished, basically lacking everything, rofl.
So our personal trainer, Kurt, recommended me to do exercises that builds mass.
Guess what activity? o.0



Kurt strapping my hands with the protective bands.
I kept on telling him, "HAHA, don't need wrap la. I can't do it. I really can't do it. How can I hit someone!?"

Still, he was very determined to get me started on boxing.
He taught me the positioning of our limbs and body, emphasizing on defense position which is very important to protect my face ROFL, and basic punches.

Throughout the entire initial explanation segment, I feel that he's really very VERY patient with especially since I'm such a noob in exercising -_-
Also, he made me felt very relaxed even though it was my first attempt at it.

So much so that I totally enjoyed and released all my stress at one go

See, even I myself was totally taken aback by the power of my punch and started curling my body back apologizing if I had hurt him.

He smartened up and made me use the gloves instead :`D
And now he uses the equipment instead of taking my punches with his bare hands, heh heh heh.

(still got audience in the ring neh? keke)

We had about three 5-min intervals of boxing in that session and I was perspiring at the end of the short 15 mins.

Did some stretching to cool down the body and Kurt attempted to curl me into a ball.

He seems happy to be getting his revenge now :`D
(I'm so sorrie for punching you sobsobsobs!)

Nevertheless, the entire session was rather fun.
Our personal trainer, Kurt, was pretty motivating and not in an overwhelming manner like I was initially afraid of prior to attending the session.
I never knew I could do boxing and a mere 15-min of boxing makes me feel like I've exercised for an hour! It's definitely good and fun workout!

Now, you can also kick-start your professional fitness regime at only $1.75 a day :)
