Skin Inc Singapore (Event + GIVEAWAY!)

Last month we got invited to Singapore to attend this fabulous, *literally* colourful event held by Skin Inc.
Let's start with,
the day we arrived.
We landed in Singapore at around 9pm local time and headed straight to our stylish hotel, Sofitel So Singapore, to check in.
There was actually a dinner event at Pince & Pints at 8pm, but unfortunately we couldn't catch an earlier flight, so we had to miss it!
...and by "it" we meant this mouth-watering lobster!!!

Sooo sad as we heard many good reviews about it! ;___;
Definitely a-must-visit place for our next trip to Singapore!

Anyway, back to the hotel.
The lobby was decorated with Skin Inc's fun and colourful bottles, as you can see below :)
After we received our room key, it didn't take us long to get to our room, and look what we found there:

A very sweet and generous welcome from Skin Inc Team! Thank you! :)

Our first plan was to sleep right away so we could wake up early the next morning, but suddenly we were told that Aimee Song and her sister, Dani Song were at Ku Dé Ta that night! So, we rushed to change our clothes and went down to the lobby where our transport was waiting to take us there.

As we stepped off the elevator and walked towards the hotel entrance, we saw this group of five stylish girls walking towards us anddd, two of them were the Songsters!!!

And what did we do? We just smiled awkwardly at them and kept on walking wtf. Guess we were too nervous that our mind went blank. Then suddenly, we met our friend, Monicawho came along on this trip with us, near the lobby entrance and she told us that she already took a picture together with Songsters! And then she asked us if we wanted to do the same, well, YA-HA?!

And so, we turned back, called them (they were waiting for the elevator) and without further ado, asked for a picture!
Our very first #songsterssandwich! xD

After that, we went to Ku Dé Ta for some drinks til about 2am...
The next morning, we had our breakfast at Xperience Restaurant.
Truth is, we were running late so each of us only had time for an omelette and a glass of orange juice (and some photos, lol).

Skin Inc Event at ION SKY

At around 10am we departed from our hotel lobby to Skin Inc press conference at ION Sky, Level 56 Ion Orchard.
When we reached there, the place was already packed with familiar faces from the Internet, and they were all so stylish!
Like these gorgeous girls: (from L-R) Dani Song, Velda Tan, and Aimee Song.
Before exploring the place, let us take a picture in front of their iconic bottles first. ;)
The first area that we checked out, lol.
(Pardon us, we didn't have a proper breakfast, remember?)

Next! Checking out their signature product: A custom-blended serum :D
Jess showing some love for Skin Inc 

After about 30 minutes of exploring the place, it's time for the press conference:
The opening speech by the founder and CEO of Skin Inc, Sabrina Tan.
The reason why she started the company was because she wanted to find a solution to her eczema-prone skin, and now (since 2007), the business has grown from one store in Singapore, to 17 outlets across 16 cities worldwide!

...and, and, it's also the first Singapore brand carried by Sephora! :O

Such an inspiration, isn't she?

She also explained that, in this era where women are empowered, many of us are working our asses off to pursue our dreams, that we often don't get enough time to take care of our skin especially with A LOT of beauty products (toner, moisturiser, serum, etc).
And that's when Skin Inc comes to the rescue with their customised serum,

"My Daily Dose"!

In just ONE bottle, you get everything you need to take care of your skin! What a great concept!

A clearer picture of "My Daily Dose".

"Skin Inc’s patented technology boasts a unique concept of customising serums to suit individual needs and keeps the active ingredients in each serum enclosed in moisture-rich seaweed capsules which are suspended in a paraben-free solution." x

The Japanese doctor behind Skin Inc.
↑ Jess consulted with the doctor about "My Daily Dose", which led us to:
...our first #SKINcheck!

At this point, you should already be familiar with the concept of "My Daily Dose".
So, in order to get that ONE bottle that contains our very own customised serum, we must first take a #SKINcheck :)

The purpose of SKINcheck is to know what exactly are your skin problems, what would you like your skin to be, what are your bad habits that might harm your skin, your age, where do you live, etc., so they can create a serum that meets your skin's specific needs, such as anti-aging, brightening and hydration.

Funny thing was, there were 5 persons from Indonesia and we took the SKINcheck separately, but ALL of us had the SAME result!! Loll, so we guess our environment plays a powerful role in our skin's health, eh?

If you're curious about your skin's needs, take your #SKINCheck here. :)
You just need to answer some simple yes/no questions!

Interested to try the serum?
Join our GIVEAWAY at the end of this post! ;)

Jess opted for pastel that day :) 
Our #OOTD!
Indonesian team! :D
With the super cool and hilarious, Song Dani! She reminds us of our own cousin, Valen (who aspires to be a hairdresser too btw), so much!! haha, we love her!
We first knew this lady from Instagram (@belluspuera) and we've adored her since! Her beauty, skin and style are just impeccable Oh, and she's also the co-owner of the restaurant we've mentioned earlier, Pince & Pints!

Closing the press conference event coverage with this selfie! (Monica - Jess - Elle).
Thanks, Mon, for being so helpful during this trip. :)


After a fun session at the press conference, Skin Inc team invited all the media and bloggers to have lunch together at Paradise Dynasty, Ion Orchard. We were seated in a round table for 10 persons and after about 15-20minutes we just realised that we'd been sharing table with the peeps from Indonesian magazines! :D
Anyway, this restaurant is known for its colourful xiao long baos which have different flavours for each colour!
Here's the complete list of the flavours. We only tried the Foie Gras, Truffle and Crab Roe, and they were so delish!!

Facial Treatment at Skin Inc ION Orchard

FINALLYYY, time to get pampered!! xD
During the treatment :)

DONE! Our skin felt so fresh after the facial. Fyi, the treatment was PAINLESS, because unlike the usual facial, they don't use the acne extraction techniques.

Hair Styling

After an hour of pampering our facial skin, our hair seemed to demand the same attention. So, off we go to Salon Vim!
˚The results *✧⁺˚

With Monica again :D
Last selfie before going back to the hotel!
Thank you, Salon Vim for styling our hair! We will come back for sure!
Eh wait, Jess has actually come back a few weeks ago. Read her full post here about her new hair colour done by Salon Vim :)

Dinner + Rooftop Party

Before going to the party, we had a chance to taste the creative dishes of the Michelin-starred guest chef, Yuichi Kamimura! 
This one was Jess' but she forgot the name. :/
Elle's: Lobster & Scallops Laska Risotto. Both of them were sooo tasty, as expected from a Michelin starred chef! :D

Ok, now that our tummies had been filled, up we went to the rooftop!
When we got there, people were already busy taking selfies with the Songsters, lol.
↑ Love the beautiful scenic backdrop! :) 
Enjoying our drinks by the pool, shying away from the crowd. (〃▽〃)
Got introduced to Mae from!
Despite her cool and edgy look, she was actually very friendly and funny! We also found out that she has a variety show called "Miss Korea - I'm MAE" by InsiteTV! If you love Korea and are curious about living there by yourself, you should check out the show here! It's a fun way to learn about Korean culture. :)
Aaand, look who else we met there! THE Ladyironchef (Brad Lau) and his beautiful wife who is also a blogger, Melody Yap!
If you haven't heard about him (which we doubt), he's a very well-known food blogger from Singapore that even our mom follows him on Instagram, lol! She often says, "I want to take good pictures like Ladyironchef that make people drool!", please. (-___-;)
Anyway, they were so kind and humble! We hope to meet him, his wife, and Mae again sometime in the future.
Fave pic from that night!

Last Day :(

There was only a few minutes left before we had to leave for the airport. So a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do! Taking pictures!!
Loving this Game of Throne-esque spot!
Jess saying goodbye to the cute silver pug at the hotel lobby! :D

  11. Hi Elle & Jess☺

    My favourite colour is lilac. This colour always enchanting for me. The pinkish side of it give such sweet and soft tone, also i can almost smell pretty floral just by looking at the colour :) The purple side restraint it from being too girly, it gives the colour power so it feel mature and mysterious. Such a perfect blend!

    Love, Christie

  12. I love blue.... the colour of sky ^^

    wish me luck ;)


  13. Hi Ci Elle and Ci Jess ^____^

    My favorite color is basically pink, but I like red too in some situations (like if I there's no pink, lol). I really like pink especially pink which is a bit red, like redish pink (?). Based on this catalog ( the pink I like named amaranth, and I also like brink pink ^^

    I like pink because for me, it's the sweetest color on earth. Like it can helps me show my girly side without much effort, because I'm actually a shy person but I want to show myself to others. I feel good and confident if I wear pink ^___^

    Thanks for this chance! Glad to share this with you two ^___^

  14. Hii Ce Elle and Jess.. My favorite colors are Pink and Purple, because it's cute and sweet :3
    I also like pink purple and blue altogether just like mermaid themed color..
    my email:
    hope i'll win :) thank u

  15. My favorite color of all times is YELLOW!!
    In my opinion, yellow shows cheerfulness, fun, and also makes me feel younger and remind me of my childhood..

    It also makes everything looks fresher!


  16. Lovely :)
    anyway, my favourite colour is white.

  17. All the times go to TOSCA colour ,green and blue are best combination and also soft colour����

  18. My favorite color is navy blue, like thundering cloudy night because it matches almost everything as for clothing. It's not regular blue, but it's not dark blue either, it's in the middle, just like myself. I'm half outgoing, and half shy. I'm half games, and half serious. It's a color nobody can criticize, and it's a color that means business.

    Lots of love,

  19. Hi Ci Elle and Ci Jess,
    My fave color is red, because it's describe me a lot, ambitious and full of spirit..
    When I'm wearing red, it always mean that I will always in a happy mood and full of joy.
    For me, red is a happiness. :3

  20. Hi Ci Elle&Jess! ^.^

    My favorite color is Blue, because it gives that calm, relax and fresh feelings like the clear blue sky or the sea :)

  21. Yellow will always be my favorite color! its perfect for me, because yellow is like a sunshine, and we can't live without it, yellow color always make me feel happy, because the color is so cheerful, joy, and give me a spirit for my day. and as i know in psychology yellow can suggest impatience, criticism and cowardice. so, yellow will always be the best color for me, and my day :D

    email :

  22. Hello~!! Whenever i see the sky or ocean it gives me peaceful feeling, relaxing and calming. Even when i had the most annoying day ever that feel will fade away when i see the sea or sky. So, my fave color if you asked me is Blue~~! Beside blue, i also like magenta color, i have to always wear something that has magenta color in it. xD Thank you :D

    Email :

  24. Hii.. truth to be told, i love all colors. For me, each of color has its own meaning and represent me in a way. Since i'm moody kinda girl (i go along with my mood at that day :p) so i love all colors..
    But, my top 2 color that i never got tired with is PINK and BLUE !! All pink color from shocking pink to soft pink, me lovin' it!
    For me, pink is the color of joy, love, friendliness, and if i go with soft pink is really calming me down. Since i'm a little girl, everything that i have are in pink haha. Even my glasses are in pink frame till i got in my high school (i wore it since junior high and change my lenses at least 8 times cause i somehow broke my glasses a lot Xp)
    And my other fav color is blue. All that has blue in it, u count me to love it. For me, blue is like sky and i love love love looking at the sky since i knew how to walk. It's just the feeling that u can dream all the way u want to dream, see your standard as high as the sky, and u see that it has no limit and so is your goal. So blue reminds me of that. And blue is super calming, relaxing, refreshing and its one of the color for royalty. Blue is making me feel "you're a princess in a certain way, no matter how bad people treat u, u're still a princess. So just suck it up and act like a princess!"
    so, thats my two top color all the time :)

    mail :

  25. My favorite color is white because to me, when it comes to fashion white is very bold and matches with pretty much everything. Beside that, white shows me calm, luxury and innocence. <3

    email :

  26. Recently my favorite color is turqoise, because it looks fresh, calming, but still fun for summer ;)

  27. hi Jess & Elle :D

    my favorite color is yellow because looks so shine n will make my day always cheerfull

    love, Julia K.

  28. I love the blue one!! 青い色大好き!!

    There's a research that said "Blue color can press down our appetite", so people won't have appetite to eat a lot when they have blue color for their dinning room's wallpaper. Nah, nah, I'm just kidding to talk about this. This is only my dream to be skinny like you two ヾ(*´▽`*)ノ ❤
    Why I choose blue because it's my favorite color!! Holy nature color: sky, sea. I like to spend my holiday on nature place. Like on the mountain to lie down and see the blue sky. Then I love to enjoy the wave of blue sea. Blue for me is really a lovely color. It describes me as a independent girl that loves adventures and challenges but still girly. Forever BLUE ❤


  29. What an awesome opportunity and event you had in SG! :D Love all of your hairstyle there. So beautiful! (insert heart emo here)

    For past, now and always, my most favorite color is blue (:

    Dreamy Princess

  30. Hi Elle & Jess!

    Well, actually I typed a longer comment but it got all gone with the wind after trying to set the 'comment as' thingy. Sigh. I typed on phone so it's quiet hard but tomorrow I'll come back and type the comment from computer hahaha til then, bye♡

  31. Hi again Elle & Jess!!

    It's always a good thing to see close sisters doing things together. I'm currently working hard to improve myself by eating healthy, take care of my skin, body, hair and etc. So yeah, since I only have 4 older brothers whose of course don't know about beauty tips and products I have to search it by myself. That's why I'm here, reading your reviews and tips. Seeing both of you make me a lot more motivated! because your fashion and make up are totally my type~ Ahh, I hope to be beautifull too. Wish me alot of patience because beauty is pain and take a lot of time hahaha

    My favorite color is red.
    Red basically has been together with me since I was a kid. Since I was born, my parent always buy me red-colored things because yay after they finnaly got a daughter after 4 sons and girl=pink but they dislike pink so they give me red instead, That's why I have this strange affection towards that color. That's also the reason why I like Po the best in teletubies and ranger red always seems the most dependable for me hahaha I actually don't really know the meaning behind red color, I like red just because it's the color red itself. But for clothes I usually prefer blue because you need a lot of confidence to use red (which I don't really have for now) hahaha

    So yeah, I hope to see a lot more reviews and tips from you~ Have a nice day! - Jesica

  32. I love white color. White is neutral color but for me it is pop up color. why? because white is a symbol of pure and easily to get dirty on it. same like people. people is like white color at first, but whenever they do bad things, the white color is get a black strain on it.
    Beside that, I love white color because it's make me calm, happy and feel more mature. whenever I wear white clothes, I feel I look more mature; whenever I see something white, it will make me happy and calm.

    Email :

  33. There's a little bit of Blue in all of us.

    Its the color that the mother Earth has implanted in us through the sky, the ocean, and even, denim.
