Travel essentials

March 26, 2007

I’ve been doing a bit of travelling..but what I hate most is travelling on a 14-hour plane ride back and forth from London to Singapore and vice versa. My essential’s for a super long plane tripe would be:

Sleeping pills – definitely a must. Would just pick them up from Boots in the terminal.
Laptop – music music music.
MAC Cleansing wipes – to remove whatever dirt and grime
Shu Uemura Deep Sea Water Spray in Lavender – for instant moisture
Laura Mercier Hydro-soothing Gel Masque – for slathering all over the face!
YSL Touche Eclat – to cover up those hideous dark circles
YSL Complexion Enhancer – lovely radiance giver
Dior Skinflash – highlights in a flash
Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream – fantastic moisturizer for the lips
Kiehl’s sculpting hair pomade – to get my trademark sleek hair

Gosh, I really am a sight to be seen on planes. I’ll be flying back to sunny, humid Singapore in 3 days. Really looking forward to it!!


Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream

March 19, 2007


Having chapped lips, dehydrated skin, cracked elbows/knees or dry cuticles?? This is a God-send!! It has no frilliness about it, and does what it says and does it well. For application on lips, I recommend using it only at night as it’s as gooey and glossy as it gets. You can leave it on your finger for it to melt and then just apply it liberally onto your lips. When using it it as an intensive treatment for your lips, use a soft washcloth or a baby toothbrush to buff the dead skin away. You’ll reveal soft and perfectly hydrated lips. I like using it on my elbows as my elbows crack when dehydrated. It can be even used on your face on long-haul flights, especially when your skin is dehydrated. Several people use this as a glow giving product as well. Simply smear a tiny bit on your cheekbones to get that natural glow, and smear a tiny bit on your eyelids for that super natural look as well. £20 from Seflridges or Boots.
