LADY@LXG: Loving the world's first facial epilator by BRAUN!

How is it that women with moustaches are able to convince themselves that the the thick carpet of hair on their upper-lip is not really that noticeable? 
I have actually had hair-pullingly frustrating conversations with highly educated women in high powered careers, who have convinced themselves that they either do not have a moustache - its simply a case of shadows caused by their nose or the direction of the

sun or light source (I kid you not) or, that the hair on their upper lip is so delicate and fine, that its barely noticeable, when in fact, its so darn thick, they could give most men a run for their money. 

Personally, I am very into grooming. In fact, as far as I am concerned, a woman should only have hair on her head, eyebrows and lashes (and private-bits, should she choose to do so). Anywhere else, is just not attractive nor particularly hygienic. 

Before you start labelling me an anti-feminist, let me say that I am all for women's rights, and grooming oneself does not make a woman less of a feminist, nor does a thick matt of armpit hair signify that you are a spokesperson for Women's Lib. Because grooming is all about self-respect and it doesn't matter if you are a man or a woman, hairy legs and short skirts, just don't work, period.

I usually have my brows and upper-lip threaded weekly. I love threading because its fast, precise and leaves me looking clean and groomed, but its not exactly convenient or economical, which is why, I was so excited when BRAUN sent me their Braun Face

With 10 micro-openings for super-efficient epilation, Braun Face keeps you fuzz-free for up to four weeks. Epilation with Braun Face is also 200 times faster than manual tweezers and can remove hairs four times shorter than traditional waxing (these are not empty claims. The gadget can actually wrench out, even the teeniest hairs without the pain usually associated with tweezing). The epilator also provides a gentle experience and more precise results than alternative epilators. In seconds, it gives you smooth, hair-free skin that lasts for weeks and makes you actually look like a woman again!

Braun Face is very easy to use. Just a few swipes across your upper lip, and even the most minuscule hairs are gone, the best part, its not painful. This actually surprised me, 'cos I expected it to hurt a bit, like tweezing or threading, but for some reason, it doesn't. Its far less painful, so if  you are afraid of pain, this little beauty is for you! Just be careful when epilating your brows, because its easy to lose control, especially if its your first time using it, and you can end up losing an eyebrow. I accidentally removed a part of my brow, which did not do much for my looks, but it was totally my fault for getting a little too excited with the gadget on the first try. 

I love how beautiful and slim the epilator is. Its seriously so compact and light-weight, I can pop it into my bag and take it wherever I go. In fact, I love BRAUN, cos even my regular epilator is by them and its a gadget that I totally can't live without! I also love the fact that it comes with a detachable facial brush head, which means that when I travel, I only need to pack one gadget, which will keep me looking groomed and cleansed with little effort. 

Braun Face retails at $99 and is available in Singapore at all major electrical chain stores, departmental stores, leading hypermarkets and independent electrical stores.

LADY@LXG: Restore youthful luminosity to your skin with SOTHYS

Our skin's has an energy capital which is the source of its radiance throughout the years. And when the skin is deprived of this energy (due to lifestyle, ageing, diet, stress etc), it loses its glow and appears more marked by the signs of ageing.

Because more than 90% of visible light is not directly reflected by the cutaneous surface; instead, it penetrates the skin before being revealed, the cutaneous radiance depends closely on the skin's quality. Sothys advanced research has selected an illuminating complex and unifying pigments to play with the light and reveal every woman's beauty, immediately, day after day, making this range one of my beauty must-haves! 

Sothys Energizing Booster Serum (S$279, 30ml) 

This intensive serum helps boost the skin’s energy to restore a radiant complexion. Formulated with Anti-ageing Illuminating Complex to limit and correct imperfection, this lightweight serum absorbs instantly and does not leave any heavy or greasy after feel.  

Just like the Energising Day and Night cream from this range, which left my skin looking amazing, even after a sleepless night, this serum has the same magical properties, but even more concentrated, if you could believe it! 

Use this serum every morning and evening on the entire face and neck, avoiding eye contour, followed by your moisturiser. I usually use this every night, especially before an important event or meeting, because I wake up the next day with glowing and clearer skin! 

This little ampoule is like an expresso shot for your face. An energy booster for instant radiance and brightness, it acts as an instant transparent mask to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and upon application. Forget using a primer if you are using this little wonder, cos it leaves skin looking flawless, sort of like its been photoshopped, so save it before a big night out! 

After using your moisturiser, simply apply the entire content of an ampoule onto your face and neck and gently smooth it over the skin and viola...photoshopped perfection! (psssst... you can even blend it with your foundation, for an all-day-lasting makeup!)

The SOTHYS Diamond Programme is available at appointed SOTHYS Salons island wide!
