The Magical Cloud – Affordable Natural Organic Products For Your Everyday Life!

Recently, i have received a care package from The Magical Cloud and i’m so thankful for it! Been neglecting myself ever since the arrival of Caleb and i’m so in need of self-care and personal grooming! During pregnancy, i was extremely paranoid over the products i used on my face and body. Decided to switch to natural organic products and i have never look back since! The Magical Cloud is a local brand which carries products that are chemical and preservatives free. They use natural and organic ingredients to give the best for for your skin, face and body.

First of all, I will be reviewing on the organic lip balms from The Magical Cloud! i’m in love with the ingredients and quality of the lip-balms as it is made with all-natural / organic alternatives + essential oils. Therefore, i won’t be ingesting potentially harmful ingredients like petroleum. It comes in 2 flavors – Lemon and Lavender. Both lip-balms smell really great and therapeutic!

Texture wise – Both lip balms have nice consistencies, creamy and not too waxy which make application a breeze. After application, my lips feels soft, smooth and hydrated. The lip balm does not cause stickiness and it adds a soft glossiness to my dull lips. 🙂

Next up, there’s the Bye Bye Stinky which will give me new refreshed feet! Because of my work environment, i will have to wear covered shoes and that will tend to make my feet sweat. The foot spray contains 100% pure Australian tee tree essential oil Tea Tree which neutralizes odour and prevents odour formation. It also has antiseptic, antibacterial and anti microbial properties. It is recommended to shake well before use and to spray on both feet from a 15cm distance. I will use about 2 sprays onto each sole and there’s a refreshing sensation after use. At the end of the day, there’s no unpleasant smell when i remove my shoes! 🙂

Shoo Away! Insect Repellent Spray keeps the nasties away with 100% pure Australian tee tree essential oil. I like this insect repellent as it is not oily and it does not contains any chemicals and preservatives. This is really important to me as i don’t want anything harmful to transfer to my baby’s skin when i carry him. It also does its job well by keeping the mosquitoes away and protected me from itchy and red mosquitoes bites!

Like it or not, we are exposed to fine dust particles which affects health and irritates skin. Overtime, the accumulation of toxins and impurities in our bodies leads to a wide range of issues, from deterioration of the skin to detrimental health conditions. Hence it is important to use products which will draw out harmful toxins, deep-seated impurities and negative energies from the skin to promote purity and natural balance. The Magical Cloud has products that will shield our skin from harsh environmental pollutants, promote clearer, brighter and improve overall skin health for absolute wellness.

For the body, there’s the Yummy Honey! Body Scrub to promote skin detoxification for better skin health! It is recommended to use a wooden spoon (as it contains honey!) to scoop up and apply to whole body. Gently massage using medium pressure to exfoliate dead skin cells. Thereafter, rinse with warm water and pat dry. Skin may feel oily after use, but rest assure that the Olive oil’s goodness will get absorbed within 10 mins and leave one with moisturized skin. There are no chemicals or preservatives so use this within 1 month.

I’m pretty excited to try the Yummy Honey! Body Scrub as it contains honey! Honey helps to eliminate bacterial so it will be good if you have acne prone skin. Not only that, it is packed with antioxidants to help prevent aging. It also has soothing and hydrating properties! The Yummy Honey! Body Scrub smells really heavenly and inside the packet, it contains dense amount of Honey!!! ohhhh!!! The texture of the scrub is ‘honeyish-sugary’and the consistency makes application fuss free and convenient (you need not worry about getting scrub particles all over the place). 

As i don’t have the habit of using a body cream, the skin on my body tends to be dry, and flaky. Hence, i will have to exfoliate the skin on my body regularly to get rid of dull skin and dead skin cells. After giving my body a good scrub, skin felt oily but there’s no need to rinse it with soap so as to let the goodness of olive oil penetrate your skin. Once the oiliness is gone, skin feels smooth and supple. My skin also appears to be brighter, more supple and moisturized. Yeah!

Clean skin is the first important step to flawless skin and the best thing you can do is to remove your makeup and double cleanse your skin daily. It is important to use effective products that will remove all dust, excessive sebum, impurities and make-up which contributes to skin problems (like clogged pores, acne and sensitivity)! The Magical Cloud’s Clay Genie! Exfoliating Cleanser with Azuki and Kinako Clay helps you achieve the perfect skin as it cleanses while also conditions, whitens & moisturizes skin.

To use it, you will have to mix 1 -2tsp with water or milk. Stir until a paste forms and let it thicken for 1 min. Apply to face and massage in circular motions. Leave it on for 5 minutes and wash it off. I won’t deny that application is a little troublesome but i assure you that it is worth the effort! The Clay Genie! contains natural oats exfoliater so it removes dead skin cells gently. After leaving it on for 5 mins, my skin brightens instantly and it is so smooth to the touch! Best of all, i did not experience redness after using it!

The Magical Cloud products are available online website and new users enjoy 10% cashback!

Hello everyone~!  Hope you had a good rest during the long weekend! 🙂 It has been 4 months post surgery and i’m glad that i can stop taking the course of medication. While on medication, it has brought about unpleasant side effects and one of the major side effect would be increased oil secretion! As you know, breakouts and blackheads will come hand in hand when skin is oily.. As a result, i have to battle with patchy skin and post acne pigmentation. 😦

Recently, Ceramiracle has sent me their newly launched breakthrough product TRUE BRIGHT Skin Brightening Supplement. This beauty capsule nurtures camera-ready radiant and even looking skin so one will always be at your photogenic best. Sounds like what i need to fade away dull skin and acne marks! 🙂

I’m not sure if it is the change of skincare products or the incorporation of this supplements that attitudes to cleaner skin and lesser clogged pores. But i’m glad that the combination is working well hand in hand to give me healthier skin. As for post acne marks, i guess i must be more patient for it to fade totally.

Have tried a few items from the De-Stress – Home Spa Set and here’s the feedback:

My husband loves using bar soap but he often complains that it is too drying for his skin.. Have replaced the bar soap with the De-Stress Cleansing Bar and he loves the scent! Not only that the cleansing bar has good cleansing power – rich and smooth lather, he finds that it is non-drying


De-Stress Cleansing Bar

The Relaxing Body Cleanser smells soothing and relaxing… The scent will linger in the toilet after i’m out of the shower (Love it!!) room. Relaxing Body Cleanser does a good job keeping my skin smooth, clean and radiant (without being too drying!). The gel texture of the body cleanser makes it easy to spread and also to wash off.. It is also easy to wash it off and clean feels squeaky cleans without any tightness.. After cleansing, it leaves my skin feeling clean, smooth without any tightness…


Relaxing Body Cleanser

Recently, i have been so stressed up with work that it is affecting my sleep 😦 The Harmonizing Essence Mist is the first thing i have tried after getting the De-stress Home Spa Kit.. Just 2-3 sprays onto my pillow, there’s an instant soothing and calming effect.. The mist doesn’t stain my pillow and i have better quality sleep after using this. Spa Ceylon has another Lavender Mist which has the same effect but personally i feel that the Harmonizing Essence Mist is more suitable for people who cannot accept the stronger scent of lavender. 🙂


Harmonizing Essence Mist

The therapist had use the Dashamula Body Treatment Oil on me during the deep tissue massage and i was surprised at its non-greasy formula. Normally i will avoid body massage that uses oil (unless there’s a shower facility in place). Not only that it smells heavenly, i told the therapist that i don’t find the need to shower after the massage ended. Wise choice as she said that it is best to leave the treatment oil for better results.

Reveal a Brand New Layer Of Glowing Skin With Dr. Belter Cosmetic’s Derm-A Renew Treatment

Hello My Readers, it is me again!! Hope you had a great week and i’m excited to tell you that i have finally collected to keys to my new home! Will be posting more updates and in the meantime, i’m open to collaborations so you can keen to email me if you are keen to work with me. Thank you! 🙂


In the midst of the busy-ness, i have allocated some pampering time for myself and off i went to Annabelle Skin. This time, i have tried one latest skin treatment by Dr Belter, an internationally acclaimed natural and organic skincare brand from the Europe. This award-winning German brand embraces a philosophy of using raw and natural ingredients combined with technology to formulate perfection for the skin. The new treatment is known as Derm-A Renew which is a Fruit acid treatment for skin in need of peeling and accelerated renewal. It is made possible by Dr. Belter Cosmetic’s new range of fruit acid products developed with its signature GreenTec concept to treat skin problems like acne, enlarged pores, uneven skin tone, fine lines, scarring and ageing due to sun exposure.

By leveraging on Dr.Belter Cosmetic’s signature GreenTec concept which combines natural and medicinal plants with high-tech pro-medical active ingredients, this unique facial treatment sets itself apart from others in the market with several notable features. While most peeling treatments in the market focus solely on peeling, the new Derm-A ReNew treatment is even more precise and targeted as it is developed with two key concepts – ‘Skin Renewal’ through the use of Dr.Belter Cosmetic’s newly developed fruit acid concentrates and ‘Skin Nourishment’ through use of the brand’s line of ampoules and facial masks tailored to the skin’s needs.

Regular, systematic fruit acid treatment leads to an activation of cell division in the basal layer and consequently to an enhanced renewal of the skin layers. It also triggers an increase of fibroblasts and their connective tissue products, thus increasing the skin’s moisture and tone. One of the common problems of aged skin is the long regeneration cycle of approximately 40 days. Fruit acid treatment can stimulate the skin to accelerate its regeneration cycle to a pace of a typical young skin in approximately 28 days.

Through an eight-session Derm-A ReNew treatment facial treatment, skin will be stimulated to experience the significant effects of a visibly refined skin profile. Before the Derm-A ReNew treatment, Mandy explained to me that the treatment will start cleansing, followed up by Derm-A-ReNew Preparation Cleansing Toner, a refreshing and anti-irritation liquid toner that works to ease and cool the skin before the course treatment with fruit acids.

This is followed by the treatment use of Derm-A ReNew Skin Renewal Concentrates, a specific complex based on five standardised plant extracts, namely sugar cane (glycolic acid), blueberry (lactic acid), orange and lemon (citric acid) and sugar maple (malic and tartaric acid). The extracts within the concentrates work to breakdown the intracellular substances, and peel off dead cells, stimulating skin regeneration and increasing cell renewal rate to lead to an improved skin structure and complexion.

The concentrates come in 10%, 20% and 40% fruit acids, and are used throughout the course of the eight-session treatments. The therapist will start from the lowest concentration of 10% for the first two sessions, and gradually increase the levels according to the skin condition as the treatment progresses every bi-weekly for an effective result. During each session, the concentrate will be administered step-by-step with a mask brush onto the face and neck and left on the skin for three – six minutes from the time of application.

Following that, the Derm-A-ReNew Neutralising Gel will then be applied with a mask brush to soothe and calm the skin, before it is layered again with the goodness of Dr.Belter Cosmetic’s range of ampoules and masks tailored to specific skin needs as part of the finishing care in the treatment

Took a quick picture before the Derm-A ReNew treatment commerce! As you can see, i have post acne brown marks which i wish to get rid of. My skin tone is also dull and lifeless. As my skin is on the sensitive side, Mandy will start off with the lowest concentration – 10%.

I’m not new to chemical peel as i have done it twice but the downtime can be unpleasant. Will try to avoid doing it if possible.. Told Shirley from Annabelle Skin my concerns and she assured me that there will not be any downtime / discomfort. So rest assured that before the start of every treatment, the beautician will always check for any skin sensitivity or disorders.

As i did not have any makeup on my face, Mandy used »Sensi-bel« Delicate Cleanser to cleanse my face thoroughly. After which, she applied the Derm-A-ReNew preparation cleansing toner.

Before applying the Fruit Acid skin renewal concentrate, Mandy reminded me to keep my eyes shut. She applied the 10% skin renewal concentrate a with mask on face and neck. During the process, i felt mild stinging sensation on some areas of my face (Which is bearable and Mandy will reduce it by fanning the sensitive areas). The fruit acid was left on my skin for about 5 mins before it was cleansed off throughly. After drying my skin, Mandy applied the intensa-med Derm-A-ReNew neutralizing gel with mask-brush and remove again with compress.

Once done, clogged sebum and impurities are removed from my pores with Annabelle’s special extraction method. As Annabelle Skin does not promote squeezing to get rid of impurities, a special extraction tool is used together with special technique instead. As a result, it is not as painful as compared to conventional extraction. Moreover, skin is less angry and not as red after extraction! This time, extractions did not hurt as much as Mandy said that the  Fruit Acid will push impurities to the surface (which makes extractions much easier!)

Once Skin Renewal is done, Skin Nourishment is carried out with the application of »intensa« ampoule and Mask. For my skin, Mandy has used the #04 Ampoule Sea Algae Extract which is known for healing, re-mineralising and firming properties. After applying the ampoule, Mandy applied a layer of the Ginkgo Biloba Solid-Bio-Matrix-Fleece Mask to soothe and restore my skin with frail capillaries. This mask also increase deep hydration and firmness with its pure, insoluble collagen fibres contained in the mask.


Proper care of skin after Derm-A ReNew treatment is very important in order to achieve better results. To better take care of the new layer of skin, it is best to avoid excessive sun exposure. Sunblock is also important after the procedure as new skin is more susceptible to sun damage. I’m currently using Dr Belter Sun Protection (SPF 30) Face Elixir and i cannot stop raving about its texture. The sunblock has a fluid serum like texture and it feels so light on skin. It does not leave behind any stickiness, white cast and greasiness after applying. Moreover, it can be easily washed away with your regular cleanser (No need makeup remover) so i need not worry about it being too heavy and clogging my pores. The formula consists of protective concentrate for the face protects the sensitive skin from sunburn and other harmful effects of the sun. It uses biological cell protection complexes, such as Ectoin®, a special DNA shield from the plant cassia alata to prevent sun-induced skin aging and the formation of hyperpigmentation.

The picture is taken after Derm-A ReNew treatment and my skin turned so much smoother and brighter instantly!

After treatment, you can also ‘maintain’ the results by making use of Derm-A ReNew homecare products. The following fruit acid products helps to skin consistently renewed skin even in between treatments. This light, night care emulsion that promotes dermal regeneration to maintain the refined pore profile and also helps to diminish the appearance of undesired pigmentation and wrinkles. It is available in fluid 10% (for acne and black-heads prone skin) and Oleo serum 10% (for more mature, dry and prematurely aged skin).

Skin Renewal Fluid 10%, 30ml SGD88 & Skin Renewal Oleo Serum 10%, 30ml SGD108

My Experience with Derm-A ReNew treatment: 

Hours after Treatment – Skin felt clean and light! There’s no redness and no discomfort~ It is the direct opposite of what i experienced after normal chemical peel.

The Next Morning After the Peel – My skin is so smooth and bright that it glows (i’m not kidding!!).. Definitely loving the softness and smoothness. There’s no peeling, no redness and no itchness.

Day 3 and Beyond – Skin still stays soft, smooth and bright! On day 3, fine shreds of dead skin surface after i tone my skin with cotton pad. There’s no discomfort and no itchiness.  2 weeks after the treatment (as you can see from the picture below), skin still stay smoother to the touch and it is still so bright!  My husband was asking me what i did to my skin as it is so ‘glowy’! There’s some dark post acne marks which lightens after the treatment and i’m definitely loving the results~ Can’t wait for my upcoming facial treatment this sat! 🙂

2 Weeks After Treatment

Now, compare it to the skin that i had before facial treatments at Annabelle Skin.. Such a tremendous improvement isn’t it? 🙂


The Dr.Belter [Derm-A ReNew] treatment is available at SGD 238 and is suitable for both male and females, as well as different skin conditions including acne, enlarged pores, dull skin complexions, scarring, pigmentation, and mature, wrinkled skin

My Skin Journey With Annabelle Skin |Part Five

Hello everyone, i’m currently on vacation in the US and 10 days just zoomed past like that!! 😦 Will be heading back to Singapore in a few days time and i must say that i really miss the food back there. I have been consuming so much fried food, burgers, sandwiches and salad that i’m getting sick with it. Since i have some time to spare (my husband is off for his conference) so i will do a quick skin update.

P.S: I hope i have some time to do a blog post on my US trip as this is our first self-drive trip and i’m so excited to share some must go / see places in Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Arizona and Orlando! 


The amazing Grand Canyon!

Alright! As you know, i’m going to Annabelle Skin for regular facial every 3-4 weeks interval.  Annabelle Skin aims to serve as the trusted skin and body care companion to its clients as they go through different stages in life by providing quality treatments, effective results and personalized service. Annabelle Skin strongly believes that everyone’s skin condition is unique. Each skin and body treatment will be customized accordingly with the combination of skillful manual methods with advanced scientific beauty technology, using high quality products made with natural ingredients from Europe to produce the best and most effective results. Annabelle Skin is currently using an internationally acclaimed natural and organic skincare brand from the Europe. The award-winning German brand – DR. BELTER COSMETIC embraces a philosophy of using raw and natural ingredients combined with technology to formulate perfection for the skin. I’m currently using some skincare products from Dr Belter to maintain the condition of my skin (in between facial) and you can refer to this blog post if you want to know how it fares

Before the start of every session, Mandy will always access the current condition.As mentioned, Mandy will be focusing  more on repairing and nourishment for my subsequent treatments. The facial treatment started off with cleansing. As i did not have any makeup on, Mandy went straight into normal skin cleansing  with the use of Sensi-Bel Delicate Cleanser followed by Sensi-Bel Delicate Tonic to remove remaining residues. Next step is to exfoliate to get rid of impurities and dead skin cell before applying a thin layer of mask. After which, it was left under cold steam for 15 mins to calm and hydrate my skin further.

After cleansing the mask off, it is time for extraction! Over at Annabelle Skin, they do not promote squeezing to decongest pores. Extraction is done using a special extraction tool from Switzerland together with special technique to remove blackheads & clogged sebum. As a result, it is not as painful and red as compared to conventional extraction. However, i felt that extraction seems more painful 1 week before or after my period so you can time your facial in accordance to your body’s reaction.

After extraction, Mandy sterilized my skin with a high frequency machine to kill bacteria on the skin’s surface.. During the process, i experienced a mild ting-ing p sensation. After which, she applied Intensa Ampoules No.9 on my skin. This ampoule is good in treating and nourishing damaged capillaries and oily skin with large pores benefit plant tannin extract. At the last part of the treatment, Mandy applied a nourishment mask on my skin.. While the mask is left on my skin, Mandy used a handheld machine (with ‘heated’ setting) to ‘drive’ the nutrients for better penetration deep into my skin. After 10 mins, she changed to ‘Cold’ setting so as to seal the nutrients and close my pores so that my skin can reap full benefits from the ampoule and mask.

Like the past facials, my skin will be healthier, brighter, smoother and more supple immediately . Gone were the days whereby my skin will be tight, itchy and filled with plenty of small pimples with pus. Below are some photos taken for the past few days. Despite the dry and cold weather in US, my skin did not turn cranky and red.. This is a vast difference as i would always tend to end up with breakouts and irritated skin in the past (in cold climate).  Another few differences would be reduced oil secretion, smaller pores size and calmer skin! It has been a long time since i have last touched my concealer (which is something i cannot leave without in the past!)
