Ate so much over the weekend it's making me feel all guilty! 
Caught the movie Drive at Cineleisure and got to say it's a good movie!

If you watched one of the recent movies titled: Crazy, Stupid, Love, you would remember the good looking guy with a hot bod. So yea, Ryan Gosling is the main actor for this movie! (:

beef and nacho cheese from best fries forever!

IMG_0172

Fries to go with our main, Pontian noodles at Far East Plaza. 

IMG_0173

Cause there was a pretty few hours before the movie, and i told you i ate a lot. 
It's tea time at Dunkin' Donuts at Ion! We wanted Banana Chocolate Cake from Cedele but the queue at 2PM was madness! I love the Banana Choc Cake there cause it's not too overly sweet like all cakes! ):

IMG_0176
You can see my eye brows are less bushy by now cause i went to have them fixed lolol!

IMG_0175

Also went to Scape for the flea held by For Flea Sake! Had wanted to get an external iPhone 4S charger jacket but couldn't see any around! Maybe the ones at Shenzhen will be more practical teehee! December is just next month- Got. To. Control!

So it was movie after donuts and flea window shopping! 

So Drive is a plot about a Hollywood stunt performer who moonlights as a wheelman discovers that a contract has been put on him after a heist gone wrong. It's an M18 movie so expect some pretty gruesome scenes like some girl's head got blown off, like literally. You could see her head got shot and flew all over the place. The moment I saw this first gruesome part, I knew i was in for me. You too, if you are going to catch this movie which apparently received 4.5 stars! 

Drive- Fantastically filmed movie albeit with a little too much gore!

Walked over to Triple 1 for Ramen at Sapporo Ramen on the 2nd level. 
Our 2nd time there.

mp3 from Sony for Ah Gong!

Went to Plaza Singapura for my appointment with Jean Yip Beauty and Slimming!
I'm there for my first IPL session with Jean Yip! ((:

IMG_0199 (2)

IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light. It's a technology aimed at producing light of high intensity during a very short period of time. It involves specific lamps together with capacitors whose rapid discharge provides the high energy required. It is a method of hair removal from the body most commonly employed by medical practitioners and estheticians. 


Pictures taken while the beauty consultants asked me some questions and looked at my underarms' hair growth. It's to determine the power of light needed for the session. Everyone's body is different so it's unique to each.

IMG_0208 (2)


IMG_0209 (2)


Was brought to the room where I was to change into this tube robe for my session. The beautician would clean me up/ shave off any stray hairs. So i suggest you to have your underarms shaved before you go for your sessions. You may be plucking your underarm hair like what i used to now. I was told that plucking is bad, i mean i didn't know too! Everytime you pluck, and a new hair grow. It's stronger. So, the intense heat radiated by the hair aims to destroy the hair-producing papilla or the entire hair follicle! 

The beauticians are all well trained so you can throw them any questions which have been bugging you! Lolol!

IMG_0211

Then the treatment starts! (:
The cooling gel is applied generously on the underarms before the zapping! 

IMG_0220 (2)
super unglam but had to show you! 


You can see that i'm still all smiley so no pain la! Totally tolerable. 

After my IPL, I was given more cooling gel to rest for 20 minutes. And moved on with whitening! 
For ladies who have darker underarms, may want to consider this step ((:

IMG_0243

And 2 more unglam pictures of me lifting my underarms for all to see! )):

IMG_0248
sealed and left for another 20 minutes for magic to work! 


IMG_0255

Then i cam whored for about 10 minutes and the other 10 minutes whatsapping Jing :D 
Meeting her for Sushi after my treatment! ((:


This IPL post treatment mask is specially formulated to be apply on body after IPL session to whiten, moisture, soothe the treated skin as well as tighten the hair pores. In house products. Made in Singapore. Therapist will prepare the mask by mixing products with correct portion for the customer. It is customized according to the skin condition of customer. 

IMG_0256
my eyelashes very nice with the heroine make mascara lol! 


IMG_0259


Then I'm done!!! ((:
The whole IPL/Whitening treatment took about 45 minutes. IPL is really swift and painless. So much better than tedious plucking or waxing! After your IPL sessions, never pluck again! Remember you don't want to roots to grow stronger but you want to destroy them. ((:

Then did you have to grow it out once to show them or something so they can access the "situation" ?(:

Anonymous said...

Hi Zoe,

So the price of the IPL is $129? or have to pay %179 together with the voucher?

Thanks!

Anonymous said...

Hi Zoe,

What are the other T&Cs for this?

So it means that the treatment will only stop when there is no more under arm hair growth? how do they access?

Why don't you give the outlet a ring? I wasn't told of the terms and conditions but probably like the certain outlets that this promo is valid to and only valid till 15 dec etc.

You can tell right if you still have anymore hair growth after a few treatments! (:

hi zoe(:

can i check if the consultant at jean yip will add other terms and conditions like 'have to go for 1 session every month for 6 months and 1 session every 2 months else the promotion would be void'?
i read reviews from many blogs saying that they have bad service and change T&C after a few sessions.
