Head to Toe Beauty Solutions for a Busy Girl

By Sunday, February 15, 2015 , ,

I bet that some of you are still scrambling to put yourselves together for the new year celebrations (the ladies at least)! I feel your pain on this one and i'm thankful that i've scheduled most of my beauty appointments in advance, well others i just can't be bothered because i have no time!! Here's sharing with you some places that i visit for my beauty fixes, especially if you're seriously pressed for time.

I visit the trusty Silkcut Salon for all my hair woes as you know. A fuss free and quick solution to dry and dull hair is the Goldwelle Elumen Color Treatment. No time? No problem! 45 minutes is all you need to color and treat your hair simultaneously.
The color effect will vary depending on your existing hair color. Mine turned out to have shades of purple, red and brown as i previously had highlights.

DrX takes care of my face with their Derma-Rx skincare products and the DrX Medispa's facials. A good skincare regime will save you a lot of money and time spent on buying and applying make up. I kid you not. Who need make up when you have perfect dewy skin right? ;) For brightening and skin rejuvenation, I use MAX-C (vitamin C) and Rejuvenator. Both serums have brightening properties and the Rejuvenator in particular, helps to eliminate dull and pigmented skin and restore skin balance for a more radiant glow. After applying these 2 serums, all i need is some sunscreen and undereye concealer and i'm ready to face the world. It's really that simple.
In preparation of the new year, i've also tried DrX Medispa's new Essential Facial Plus, a 70 minutes treatment that provides deep cleansing using the Derma-Infuser machine, which is equipped with crystal tip to unclog pores and remove stubborn dead skin cells. 
The treatment continues with an infusion of a Multi-Action solution which contains antioxidants. An ultrasonic device is then used to infuse the Radiance Renewing Serum and the Intense Hydrating Serum as recommended by my therapist. Lastly, a personalized Therapeutic Mask calms the skin after all the cleansing. 
This facial is a perfect lunch time fix and there's hardly any down time (unless you have a lot of stuff to extract). Super love as usual. Quote "Blogger Cheryl" for 40% off your first facial treatment with the DRx Medispa.

Well well, if you don't know, my set of teeth is my most expensive asset, having spent a good 5 digits to straighten them! I'm currently on the refinement process of my Invisalign journey and my teeth is gonna be super darn straight with perfect alignment. Honestly even my close gf didn't realise that i was straightening my teeth and she sees me so frequently. It's easier than braces because you get a few sets of aligners each time and you'll only need to visit the dentist approximately once in 2 months once your treatment has stabilized.

I go to Dr Cheng of i.DENTAL Surgeons at Capital Tower for my Invisalign treatment. Give him a call if you need a consult.

I did my first eyelash extensions at Milly's at Far East Square last year and they gave me really vavavoom lashes even though i told Gina to give me something natural (i guess our understanding of natural is very different). It was $85 for individual Korean lashes and Gina was very fast with the application. The lashes lasted a good 4 weeks (i tried to pluck them off myself because i have itchy fingers). The lashes were a little stiff but still bearable. If you want something softer, they have the individual mink fur lashes which is supposedly more natural looking as well. 
Well the lashes took me a while to get used to since i typically don't use any mascara, eyeliner or eyeshadow. That said, i loved how my eyes looked bigger and brighter even though i could be feeling like a walking zombie inside. 

As a busy girl, i hate wasting time at nail parlors and spas because they really do take up a substantial amount of time. Well, at Hands+Feet Studio, you can get your foot reflexology and nails done at the same time so you actually save some time! Their latest product, COAT nail color is also the first organic nail polish in Singapore!

I believe that a good diet and exercise regime goes a long way in maintaining a body that you'll be happy with. That said, we all have problem areas that can't seem to go away no matter how we watch our diet or exercise. For that extra help, check out I'Glow Beautique, a friendly neighborhood face and body beauty salon. Their Hour-Glass Perfection treatment uses Radio Frequency for body contouring and the treatment helps with cellulite appearance as well.

I like how Violet (the lady boss) is extremely honest and upfront to her customers on their required treatment duration so that they can make the right decisions on their packages. Their salon is a little out of the way (in Kovan) but they sure beat the hard selling chains that coerce you into signing your paychecks away. The Hour-Glass Perfection treatment is priced at $128 instead of the usual $188 now. They also run a dance studio nearby which provides high intensity dance lessons on Samba, Cha Cha, Rumba, Jive, Salsa etc. ($68 per 45 mins).
