[Sponsored] Kotex LUXE Ultrathin Overnight

During that one week of each month, I will get a little jilted, especially at night. Because I suffer from  heavy flow on the first 3 days of my menses cycle and what's worse is that I don't wake up in the middle of the night most of the time. There are days that i will end up with overnight period leakage and start panicking in the morning *groans*.
32cm Overnight Pad
Now I do not have to worry about overnight period leakage. Kotex LUXE Ultrathin Overnight resolves this issue, as I do not suffer from overnight period leakage anymore. Changing to Kotex LUXE Ultrathin Overnight makes me realise that I do not have panic or be embarrassed about overnight period leakage.

LUXE Ultrathin Overnight is the pad that will help you realise that overnight period leakage is never your fault. The all-new Kotex LUXE Ultrathin pad is the new revolutionary pad where softness and dryness comes together. There are three main functions that combines to make me feel comfortable and be top of my game!

The New Honeycomb Liquid-Locker rapidly absorbs and locks away the fluid to help keep your skin dry and comfortable. This is important, especially during heavy flow, some pads does not keep the fluid away, thus it makes wearing them uncomfortable.

The second main function is the New Surround Lock Protection, where the surrounding of the pad is embossed with star-contours. This is designed to help provide you with additional security and leakage protection.

The last main function, New Ultra Comfort Cover, specially designed to deliver both dryness and softness, helping provide the ultimate experience of a high performance pad. The honeycomb centre helps keep your skin dry, while the surrounding soft cottony surface helps provide intimate care for your skin.

Kotex LUXE Ultrathin Overnight pad is so comfortable that I can sleep soundly throughout the night without worrying about sudden leakage attack. Also it is absorbs fast and keeps my skin dry the whole night. I do not have to worry about skin irritation like some other pads cause overnight, as it is suitable for all skin type.
24cm daytime pad
For daytime, the 24cm Kotex Ultrathin pad comes in as effective as the night time pad for regular flows. No more worries about leakage at work or any embarrassment. It is so thin that I will tend to forget that I have pad on, but I do not have to worry about any leakage and feeling uneasy as it keeps my skin dry and comfortable with its fast absorption and leakage proof protection. My worries are gone!
The length difference isn't very huge but with an extra 6 cm keeps me comfortable overnight and I am able to get my beauty sleep even during my period.

[Sponsored] Essential CC Oil & Night Care Milk

Remember last year Essential released a product to combat bed hair issues? Essential Sleeping Hair Mask could combat bed hair, shortening the time needed to get your hair ready for work in the morning. 

This September they have relaunches the Leave On Treatment range with the brand new CC Oil and Night Care Milk! 

So what does CC in the CC oil stands for? Not colour corrector :p, but Cuticle Care. It works the same as the BB/CC cream for skincare. CC Oil protects your hair against 5 stresses, leaving you with more beautiful, less tangles and manageable hair.

What are the 5 stresses that CC Oil protects your hair against? 
Brazan Blow-Drying Stress
This stress removes moist from your hair, both insides and outside. Leaving the hair dry, brittle and susceptible for further damage. 
Cruel Combing Stress
The second stress, Cruel Combing Stress, caused by daily combing through wet hair. This action causes great hair damage as the hair follicle is at is most fragile state. Likewise, the friction caused by coming through dry hair can form hair knots which makes hair prone to unnecessary breakage. 

Spiteful Split Ends Stress
The third stress, Spiteful Split Ends Stress destroys the ends of the hair which are oldest and dries parts into two with his karate skills. Split ends can go up to 10 split per end! 
Badass Breakage Stress
The fourth stress seems so harmless, but yet it is as bad as brazan blow-dry stress! Besides daily heat styling, blow drying and brushing, other seemingly harmless actions like tying your hair into a tight ponytail or twirling your hair with your fingers exert excessive stress on your hair, resulting in hair breakage. 
Despicable Dryness Stress
The last stress, Despicable Dryness Stress, like the name suggest, it ruins the happy ending of every girl and loath at the sight of gorgeous hair. Exposure to the sun, wind or even air-conditioning can result in hair dryness. The hair cuticle that protects the hair is weakened and is unable to retain moisture within the cuticles of the hair. 

CC Oil 
To combat these 5 stresses, the Essential CC Oil coats each strand of hair with a cuticle coat protection. The cuticle coat protection leaves hair smooth and tangle-free all day! And it is easy to use! Just need to apply it on towel-dried hair or damped hair, pumping an appropriate amount, apply it from mid-hair down. And you don't have to rinse it! 

After applying CC Oil
This is my hair state after applying CC Oil. It helps in coating a layer of protection, without leaving oiliness on my hair. My hair felt smooth and tangled-free the whole day at work. 

Besides combating the 5 stresses, our hair also come in contact with Pillow Friction, this usually happens when we toss and turn at night. This friction is causes the cuticles to be misaligned. Misaligned cuticles creates frizz, resulting in the fabulous lion’s mane the next morning. But in order to "reset" the lion's mane, we have to shower early in the morning to ensure our hair looks perfect for work. But this means sacrificing our beauty sleep! T_T 
Night Care Milk
To solve this issue and get extra beauty sleep, Essential Night Care Milk helps to protects our hair from pillow friction by leaving a protective coat around each hair strand and prevent misaligned cuticles when hair rubs against the pillowcase, leaving hair more manageable the next morning. And application is as easy as abc! All we need to do is to apply this on damp hair or dry hair before we head to bed! It will do its magic throughout the night. The next morning our hair will be all ready for work! The cuticle coat protection leaves hair smooth and tangle free all day. And it contains Hair Supplement Oil, which is similar to hair’s natural oil.
The next day after applying Night Care Milk the night before
This is my hair right after I wake up, applying Night Care Milk the night before. And I am all ready to head for work! No need to "reset" my hair early in the morning and it is time to catch up for more beauty sleep. All I need to do before I head out for work is to comb my hair once and voila, my hair is as neat as it is right after shower. The best part is my hair doesn't feel oily throughout the whole day and they smell nice. 

Now Essential is having a campaign where you can win attractive prizes weekly! All you have to do is to head over to their facebook, and click Play Game or click this link to start playing the game! You will play as Essential’s Mane Hero and combat the 5 evil Hair Stress Brothers and Pesky Pillow King! 

Feeling stress that you need your dose of CC Oil and Night Care Milk? 
Now you can get it at all leading supermarkets, hypermarkets, personal care stores and pharmacies. Both retailing at $11.90 each, which is worth for all the beauty sleep you can have.

[Sponsored] ClearSK Laser SHR Hair-Free

I always have issues with keeping my under arm hair-free, but that's impossible with just shaver. Especially that is an action that you have to do everyday. Waxing is out of question since it does hurt (I guessed). The other alternative is to go for Laser SHR and ClearSK has the solution to solve the hair issue that we have been all worried about.

Their Laser SHR Hair-Free is their latest treatment for ladies who have no time to spend on shaving or scare of pain.

Lasers and light sources use the principle of selective photothermolysis to eliminate hair and its potential regrowth without damaging the surrounding skin. During ClearSK Laser SHR treatment, light passes through the skin and is absorbed by the melanin in the hair shaft. This absorption raises the temperature of the hair follicle and thermally destroys the cells responsible for regrowth.

Clinically-tested by US FDA for safety and efficacy, this treatment is suitable for all hair types (from thick to fine) and skin tone (light to dark). Highly comfortable for bikini line and Brazilian hair removal too.

So i was offered a session of Laser SHR Hair-Free treatment at Novena Medical Centre. And was ushered into the treatment room once I've reached as I reached on the dot for my appointment. *haha*
This is the machine that is used for the treatment, the applicator is rather small for a big machine.
This is a pic before my treatment, basically I didn't really shave for the treatment. The consultant had to do a little shaving before the treatment (my bad).
Cooling gel applied
A layer of cooling gel is applied on the area before the session. It's a little similar to the LaserSlim Treatment, a cooling gel is applied before the applicator is used. Then my consultant started to use the handpiece and I felt a slight warm sensation but it was not painful at all. The handpiece is to deliver continuous repetitive pulses of light. 
After treatment
Pardon for the blur photo, but it was taken right after the treatment. Not really hair-free but most of the hair were gone and basically can't even see the tiny heads like I do see after shaving ( either that I really suck at shaving).

After treatment, I applied moisturizer as I felt a little dryness over that area. And after a month, I do see even after a session of Laser SHR Hair-free treatment, the hair growth is minimal! This is amazing. Their recommended sessions to see optimal results is a minimum of 6 weeks and once per month. For hairier people, they recommend up to 10 sessions.

Hair reduction is observed after 4-6 sessions. Hair is evidently finer. For those with less serious case, the treatment causes permanent damage to the hair follicle and hence the results will be permanent.

SHR Hair Free treatment targets the deeply seated hair follicles and permanently damages them as opposed to shaving, waxing, hair removal creams which only serve to remove the hair shaft. Unless you have gone through hormonal imbalances caused by pregnancy, menopause, intake of hormone pills, most people enjoy permanent hair reduction/removal.

The 1st trial treatment is 20 minutes at the price of $68 each. They have outlets at Scotts Medical Center, Novena Medical Center, Velocity, Orchard, Tampines, Jurong East. They have an outlet at the different parts of this sunny island to cater to their customers.
