Talika Light Duo +

Earlier this month, I attended the launch of Talika's Light Duo + at Forlino. A short introduction about Light Duo +, it comes with three levels to fight signs of aging: wrinkles, dark spots, plus redness and irritation. With Micro vibration treatment added to Light Duo+, one can enjoy the “light massage” on the face while it reactivates collagen synthesis and elastin production, regulates the production of melanin, reduces pro-inflammatory cytokine production, calms down the skin, reduces redness and irritation!
I'm surprised at how compact the product is and how it can pack so much benefits in just this little hand-held device. It is said to improve skin condition within a month (depending on individuals) using light and vibration.
The size and smooth surface of the product is about the size of one's hand and resembles a soap so it's easy to gasp. You just have turn to the setting you need, hold it against your face, can be at a distance or directly on skin, the light and vibration will start to "massage" your skin. If a call happens to come in and you need to rush to get it, you can just leave it on the table and the touch sensitive device will be automatically turned off!
If you noticed the three colour lights (red, green, orange) under the display stand of the product earlier on, that's the different settings available.
The Light Duo+ emits 3 types of wavelengths:
525nm (Green): targets melanocytes for anti-dark spots
590nm (Orange): targets fibroblasts for anti-ageing and anti-wrinkle 
630nm (Red): targets fibroblasts, keratinocytes, blood capillaries for anti-redness 

Tests done by Talika have shown the following results:
-46% dark spots (2 minutes per day for 60 days)
-32% wrinkles (45 seconds a day for 28 days)
-66% instantly (1 min of usage)

Overall it helps to smooth wrinkles, replumps skin, illuminates complexion, restores radiance and increase penetration of active ingredients. The price is steep for students like me though, it retails at $575, guess it will take me awhile to get it. Anyway it is already available at Sephora! :)

Review: Owndays PC (Blue Shield) Lenses

A few months ago, I posted a guide & review on Owndays Singapore and mentioned that I would like to get PC lenses with them as well as do a pair of eye glasses in Korea/Japan and I did both! Now I have 3 pairs of spectacles which is alittle too much. Oh well, at least I don't have to worry about not being able to see if I were to lose one pair of spectacles!  Today I'll be reviewing on their PC aka blue shield lenses. They seemed to be emphasizing more on this type of lens lately and I didn't find a review on this so I decided to be the first to start. Owndays PC lenses come with a slight tinted brown colour and blue coating. The purpose of these lenses is to cut down a certain amount of blue light that is being emitted from electronic devices such as computer, mobile phones, TV, etc.  (Picture credited to Owndays Singapore)
You might be wondering, what is blue light and why do we emphasis so much on it now? Blue light is a type of light that is blue in colour(like duh.…

Review & Guide: Owndays Singapore

If you've been to Korea or Japan, you might have heard of getting a pair of spectacles done within the same day or even within minutes! Based on reviews I found online and through friends, it can cost less than $100 for a pair and I have been tempted to get mine done there ever since.

Earlier last year, Owndays decided to expand and opened its first shop in Singapore. To many, it was a relatively new concept to get spectacles within the same day but to me, it's like finally, I have a chance to experience it without having to travel!

A basic introduction to those who are not familiar with the store. Owndays is a brand from Japan that offers all-in-one price (frame + 1.6 high index aspheric lenses) at $98-$198. With 1,500 styles to choose from and processing time of 20 minutes, you can not only find a pair of spectacles to correct your vision but also change them according to different occasions.

I love their open concept. Unlike most optical…

Guide to KORAIL's O Train & V Train

Sightseeing trains are gaining popularity in Korea and it is one of the things you have to try when you're there! Today I'll be sharing on O Train & V Train which started its operations sightly more than a year ago on April 2013. These trains journey through Korea's inland valleys with the O-train looping around the central inland region, running through the provinces of Chungcheongbuk-do, Gangwon-do, and Gyeongsangbuk-do. While the V-train, connecting Buncheon in Gyeongsangbuk-do Province and Cheolam in Gangwon-do Province, runs through scenic valleys. Detailed information on these trains can be found on VisitKorea.

I realized there is a lack of information on the site as to how you can purchase the tickets online or offline and how to best plan the route if you would like to take both trains plus return to Seoul on the same day. So here's a simple post on how I purchased my tickets on the spot and the mistake I made(and you can avoid if you read this post), but …
