[New product introduction]
In October 2012, Origins Singapore launched Make A Difference™ Plus + Rejuvenating Moisturizer and Make A Difference™ Plus + Rejuvenating Treatment.
A skincare range that incorporate the innovative understanding of the biology of skin hydration into the groundbreaking plant based technology within the NEW Make A Difference™ Plus+ collection which includes Make A Difference™ Plus + Rejuvenating Moisturizer and Make A Difference™ Plus + Rejuvenating Treatment
Here how's the two moisturizers look like...
Left to Right::
Make A Difference™ Plus + Rejuvenating Moisturizer and Make A Difference™ Plus + Rejuvenating Treatment
- Make A Difference™ Plus + Rejuvenating Moisturizer
feels like a gel cream doesn't feel too oily, not sticky, not too creamy nor thick. Absorb well and fast (in this case the back of my hand).. leaving skin feel so smooth and soft.
[Suitable for normal to dry skin]
- Make A Difference™ Plus + Rejuvenating Treatment
feels more lightweight and refreshing and the texture feel like a moist type of gel. Doesn't feel sticky and oily. Absorb quite well and fast into the skin (in my case the back of my hand) .. leaving skin feel so smooth.
Both feel quite hydrating...
Origins, the natural skin care brand Powered by Nature and Proven by Science, reveals groundbreaking new technology that offers a new, innovative approach to correcting skin dehydration. After five years of intensive research on the biology of skin as it relates to hydration, Origins has shown that perpetually dehydrated skin may lack a naturally occurring enzyme.
To address this biological deficit, Origins introduces the Make A Difference™ Plus+ collection, which utilizes advanced technology to support dehydrated skin while also delivering non-stop moisture.
Dry skin is an extremely common skin condition that affects individuals of all ages and ethnicities. According to the National Health Interview Survey, more than 81 million Americans suffer from dry skin each year. Episodic dry skin can normally be rectified through regular applications of a moisturizer, whereas perpetually dry skin requires a different, more unique approach. Through research inspired by a study conducted by the Flemish Institute of Biotechnology in Ghent, Belgium, Origins has proven that hydrated skin is heavily dependent on the presence of Caspase-14, an enzyme which helps skin produce and maintain critical moisture levels. Without this enzyme, skin experiences a biological deficit and faces persistent, non-resolving dryness.
Caspase-14 works with two additional components in skin; Fillagrin, a biological protein and essential substrate for Caspase-14, and Urea, an organic compound. Together, this trio creates skin’s Natural Moisturizing Factor, which are small, hygroscopic molecules that produce moisture and help skin retain a natural reservoir of hydration. The result is healthy, hydrated skin.
In Asian skin, the stratum corneum, or the protective outermost layer of the epidermis, is thin and delicate which increases susceptibility to dehydration ” explains Dr. Lieve Declercq, Origins Global Scientist of Plant Physiology and Molecular Biology. “With this in mind, we pursued a very different approach when looking to correct stubborn dehydration in Asian skin.”

Make A Difference™ Plus + Rejuvenating Moisturizer and Make A Difference™ Plus + Rejuvenating Treatment will be available from October 2012 onwards at all Origins counters.
Retail Price : SD$78 (50ml)
Complete the regimen with:
- Make A Difference™ Rejuvenating cleansing milk
Price : SD$45 (150ml)
Gentle enough to be used on delicate Asian skin and perfect for the most sensitive complexion, this lotion - like cleansing milk thoroughly washes away makeup, dirt and impurities in one gentle step, without disturbing the skin’s fragile lipid barrier. Massage onto skin with a circular motion and rinse or tissue off. Skin is visibly replenished, rejuvenated and hydrated. The combination of The Rose of Jericho, Organic Olive Oil and plant glycerin keeps skin feeling soft, supple and resilient. It is the perfect starting point for the Make A Difference™ regime.
- Make A Difference™Skin rejuvenating treatment lotion
Price : SD$48 (150ml)
This lotion is both translucent and feathery light so skin will not feel greasy, sticky or tight. Instead the gentle product helps skin lock in moisture while it works to maintain skin’s natural pH. This essential preparatory step instantly soothes, moisturizes and softens the skin so dehydrated skin can return to its most healthy looking state and appear more radiant, supple and youthful.
- Make A Difference™ Skin rejuvenating serum
Price : SD$78(30ml)
This deeply penetrating serum intelligently adapts to the unique conditions of your complexion to help skin rebound from dehydration and damage. Three drops, twice per day yields softer, smoother and instantly hydrated skin. The signature Make A Difference™ ingredient, The Rose of Jericho, joins forces with Trehalose and Sea Haricots to provide skin with valuable moisture and help balance and sustain long lasting hydration. Oceanic Flora and Arabidopsis work together to help skin recover from past sun damage, revealing visibly younger, healthier-looking skin that appears repaired and refreshed. For best results, apply AM and PM immediately after Make A Difference™ Skin rejuvenating treatment lotion.

- Not sticky nor oily on the skin
- Absorbed really fast

My thoughts on the For Beloved One Extreme Hydration Moisture Surge Cream
Although this look like a gel cream but it doesn't feel like a gel nor cream at all! It feel more like a very lightweight non greasy mousse!!! Once I spread this on my face(skin).. it melts into liquid form (watery) and it absorbed into the skin very well and fast. (Super love the texture of this cream)
- Very moist mousse like texture
- non sticky nor oily
- Skin doesn't look oily or anything after applying the cream
(it look like I just pat dry my face after cleansing) Good for those who don't like to feel anything on the face
- Hydrating level was pretty decent... but if you have dry and tight skin, it's best to use the serum before the moisturizer as it boost up the hydrating level. (I tried it both way and I prefer the extra step of using the serum)
- Doesn't cause any skin irritation
- No breaking-out
- Skin feel smooth and soft. It last till the next day
- Skin doesn't feel too drying the next day
(however, if I use the moisturizer without the serum.. it will feel abit dry/tight around my chin)
- This cream made skin feel supple and smooth
A simple skincare products that keep skin refresh and hydrated.
With hydrated skin, skin look dewy, radiance and feel supple.
For me, normally I finished up a jar/tube of moisturizer in about 4-6weeks (depending on the size). And I always changed my skincares products. (normally I stick to hydrating/anti aging/collagen ranges - because I know my skin won't get irritated easily with hydrating products)

After using the lifting cream for about 2 months (twice a day).
The cream feel moist and creamy.. I will spread it out on my finger's tips before lightly spread/pat it on my face focusing more on drier areas (like skin between my nose and lips, inner cheek and forehead).
When I first apply the cream on the skin, it does feel abit thick, but once it contact with the heat on my face.. the cream soften and become silky type of oilyness... easy to spread (massage) around. Once the cream is fully absorbed, skin feel soft.

It might be the type of foods I eat or new cleanser... but I believe "the essence and cream" does help in some ways. I love how my skin feel NOW ^_^
I feel that the cream work well together with the essence, because I only add in the essence after trying out the cream for a month... and add in the essence after a month
I finished the cream 2 weeks ago... NOW after trying out a new skincares, my skin start to feel different!! Oh my, I miss using the cream :(

It have that thick rich type of body cream texture after the body butter absorbed into the skin in room temperature, but feel rather nice in Air-con room.

Recently, OLAY launched a new advanced anti-aging moisturizer - OLAY Regenerist Wrinkle Relaxing Cream.
A Regenerist's revolutionary wrinkle fighter which combines Olay moisture with advanced light manipulation technology and a chronic anti-wrinkle complex with intense hydrators which smoothens skin’s surface and relaxes the appearance of wrinkles instantly.
Formulated with new key ingredient Peptamide Y6, the new formula hydrates the skin to reduce the appearance of even deep eye lines in 14 days
It promsed to reduces the appearance of wrinkles in just 1 application. (Sound amazing right?)
The bottle design - the cream is housed in a sturdy pump bottle.
The texture of the cream feel like a gel cream - very moist and it does feel abit greasy. (Not those thick sticky oily type) - still consider lightweight for a "cream".
Before are afew picture when I test this cream on my fingers....
Fingers always have the most lines(wrinkles)... apart from the knuckles(of-course it gonna have lines there).. the skin above and below the knuckles have sime fine lines.. so I applied the OLAY Regenerist Wrinkle Relaxing Cream and see whether it will relax the lines and smooth of the surface...
Close up on the before and after pics below
(Top- before applying)(bottem - after, I let the cream sit for awhile before taking a pic)
I don't see much different on the before and after (from real life and from pics) BUT, it does smooth out the skin texture a tiny bit!
Hard to see much different right, but I do feel that the skin look less "tired'.
My thoughts on trying it on the face (One application - review)
- The cream feel cooling and soothing on the skin.
- Easy to spread out (due to the cream gel texture)
- Abit greasy.. feel more like silicony type of velvety smoothness.
- Took awhile to fully absorbed into the skin.
- The cream feel lightweight and gives a semi matte finishing.
During the "absorption" period ::
- When I apply the cream on the skin - it feels moist and abit greasy.
- After smoothing/patting/massage the cream on the skin, it feel silicon-y type of greasy feel.
- When the greasy feel fade away after patting - it start to feel abit sticky, while it look semi matte on the face.
After about 5mins, skin feel velvety smooth. Doesn't feel sticky nor greasy.
After 10mins (Like the brand promoted.. the wrinkles will minimized), my skin texture doesn't feel any different as compare to before, the fine lines on my forehead does look "blurred" out abit.
I don't have any wrinkles (I think so and hope so) ... so I can't really tell much on that.
Anyway, this is just my initial thought on this cream, will try it out for a period of time(mostly about a month plus) before writing a full review. (bookmark this page)

A couple week ago, attended a small and sweet little Lush party at their LUSH store. A little party for us to see see, touch touch around the store.... and of-course the freedom of taking any pictures we like ^_^
To be frank, I'm not a soap fan.. I very much prefer shower foam, gel, lotion... anything in liquid form! I'm lazy to think about ways of keeping the soap dry and free from bacteria!!!
BUT... LUSH had made me wanna try their soap bars for oh so many times.... because they smell and look so good and cute!!!!
Till now, I only tried their lip balms, shower jelly and .... 3 of their soap bars - Rockstar(is that the name?) and I can't remember the others =b
This little LUSH Party theme was "ROSE"... and they welcome us with a stalk of rose and bundang(rose water + milk)...
Why rose? That's because of Ro's Argan Body Conditioner (there's a promotion on this product too!).
Ro's Argan Body Conditioner is a decadent, rose-scented "shower lotion" (conditioner for the body) that leaves the skin oh so soft and gorgeously-scented.
It contains argan oil, which is rich in Vitamin E and essential fatty acids, that helps to improve the elasticity of the skin. It has incredible anti-aging properties. It also contain an infusion of cypress, which is a cooling herb that is said to help with swating problems.
(Abit like body deodarant!! Cool right?)
How to use?
>>> After washing up(soap/shower foam/body scrub)
>>> apply generously all over
>>> Leave on for a few mins,
>>> rinse off
>>> pat dry
In the month of May (2012), For every purchase of Ro's Argan Body Conditioner, you will receive a form(for you to fill in your name) to enter the LUSH Lucky Draw for a LUSH Hamper worth SD$150.
For more details please
Check out their blog (http://brazenedhoney.blogspot.com/2012/05/star-product-of-month-ros-arga...)
drop by their store @ Wismas
Check out their facebook Page
At the party, we got to try out 2 of their treatments ... (I can't remember the names of the products used and thanks goodness, Sara have great memories!!!! Copy it from her entry)
>>> Having a good scrub with Buffy
>>> After rinsing, pat dry and hydrate the skin using Soft Coeur massage bar
(According to them, this is edible... doubt it would be tasty, lolx)
>>> If Massage Bars leave too much of a tacky residue, can apply some Silky Underwear (body powder) to smooth things out!
As for 2nd treatment, We are using both hands... so no pics :( But I did grab some from lush's blog!!!

Garnier is proud to introduce its newly launched Aqua Defense Gentle range - Aqua Defense Gentle Hydrating Toner and Aqua Defense Gentle Extra-Moisturising Essence. Recently launched in Singapore this April 2012.
Aqua Defense Gentle range is extra gentle skincare solution to achieve baby soft skin, which give skin an instant hydration kick without the sting or redness!
Formulated with soothing Water Lily and repairing Pro-Vitamin B5, the toner freshens skin and prepares it for a more effective absorption of other skincare products.
For a complete hydration boost, the watery gel essence moisturises and protects skin from external aggressions that make skin easily sensitized. Designed to remain gentle on sensitive skin, the products leave skin smooth and supple with a healthy glow of natural radiance.
Tone and Hydrate Your Skin to a Healthy Glow
With the understanding that skin is constantly exposed to external aggressions, such as pollution, dirt and air-conditioning, Garnier Laboratories have developed the Aqua Defense Gentle range to relieve and protect skin at the same time.
Natural Ingredients to Soothe and Repair Skin
Drawing its inspiration from Nature, Garnier harnesses the benefits of natural extracts to boost hydration, repair and protect skin.
- Water Lily Extract: Known for its calming effect, Nymphea Alba or Water Lily has a cooling action which reduces skin irritation and tightness, while inhibiting the mechanisms responsible for inflammation.
- Pro-Vitamin B5: A member of the powerful B-complex vitamin family, Pro-Vitamin B5 is used for its ability to moisturise, soothe, heal, and regenerate skin.
- Vitamin E: An antioxidant with skin repairing properties, Vitamin E protects against pollution and helps to neutralize free radicals that are cause collagen damage, skin dryness and fine lines.
Combining the soothing benefits of natural extracts together with intense hydration, the Garnier Aqua Defense Gentle range provides a gentle yet effective solution to take care of all skin types, including sensitive skin.
The Aqua Defense Gentle Hydrating Toner is a 100% fragrance and alcohol free lotion, which preps skin for a more effective absorption of moisturisers and other skincare products. Enriched with calming natural extracts, it gently tones the face, leaving skin soft and refreshed.
Designed to deliver an instant hydration boost, the Aqua Defense Gentle Extra-Moisturising Essence quenches skin intensely, while reinforcing its natural protective barrier.
Its smooth watery gel texture allows the complex to be easily absorbed and ensures that no shine or greasy feel is left behind. The formula’s richness in water is also designed to lock in moisture, keeping skin revitalized and radiant throughout the day, while reducing skin tightness and discomfort.
Ever since I saw this at Watsons, I have been thinking about getting it.
Because this range just sound so soothing! lolx... I won't be using this anytime soon, I just start a new skincares range recently (but once I tried it out, will do a review on it ^_^).
I have tried the Garnier Aqua Defense non stop intensive moisturizing essence before(review), at that time... my skin wasn't as dry as now (Now, I have combination dry skin!).
Available now at Watsons, Guardians, major supermarkets and hypermarkets and selected departmental stores
