On weekdays my skin looks tired and dry and my makeup patchy/creased by end of day (I work in an air-conditioned office), so I’m happy #Guerlain’s launched a series of Super Aqua age-defying products centered around one of their top-selling serums. 
Enjoying the light-feeling Super Aqua-Créme Day Gel and Super Aqua-Serum BB+ Hydra Balm today. The day gel might actually replace my #Chanel Le Blanc Creme Fine as my daily cream! We’ll see.

Dior Addict Eau De Toilette Review

Dior’s launching a brand new Dior Addict perfume for Summer. This time, it comes in an updated glass flacon with a removable cap (no more leaking in bags), and it’s a soft fresh white floral along the veins of J’adore, Miss Dior Cherie Blooming Bouquet and Marc Jacobs Honey.

If you’re expecting a lighter version of the original Addict, don’t. If you’re familiar with Dior’s approach to the Poison range, the Addict range is similar. They are mostly completely different from each other. The biggest commonality is the bottle design.

I’ve seen reviews complaining about the fact that it smells nothing like the original Addict. Get with the programme ladies, lol. They are not twins or cousins. They are like a group of unrelated models wearing similar themed couture outfits at a runway show.

  • Top notes: Sicilian Mandarin
  • Heart notes: Sambac Jasmine, Tunisian Orange Blossom
  • Base notes: Vanilla, sandalwood

The notes jasmine, orange blossom, sandalwood and vanilla are actually similar to the original Addict. But Addict contains other different notes, and the Night Queen Flower, Bulgarian Rose and Bourbon Vanilla are much more dominant than the other notes, so it will smell like a completely different scent. Dior Addict is as dark, heady and sexy. Addict Eau De Toilette is bright, sweet and soft. 

The “sillage” and throw (how far the scent projects and trails) is soft to moderate depending on temperature. This is not a loud scent and it’s nice for the office, for cuddling, etc. You will not gas anyone. And lasting power isn’t fantastic, which is typical of fresh white florals in the EDT concentration. I get about 3-4 or so hours before I stop noticing it.

The 100ml bottle I have here is specially-engraved at the ION Dior Backstage boutique in Singapore, where a professional engraver was present the past Saturday and will be there again next Saturday (31 May).

We took inspiration from the campaign visual; a woman in a floral dress. Except the engraver took a photo of my face to try and engrave it in my likeness. LOL, I still think it turned out more like Natalie Portman in the Blooming Bouquet ads but I’m not complaining; it’s gorgeous!

Last-Minute Mothers’ Day Gift Ideas

Mothers often spend too much time on others and never enough on themselves. Mother’s Day is the one day of the year when everyone focuses on them instead, so here is a list of some nice stuff that I think would make great treats for the Mrs in your life. 

If you haven’t been able to find something yet, here are 9 suggestions for you!

  1. Mrs On-The-Go: Chanel Les Beiges Harmonie Poudre Belle Mines No 1 - highlight, bronzer, and coral blush combined. (Above S$50)
  2. Mrs Classy: A tin of Guerlain Meteorite powder is just the thing for her boudoir when she wants to powder her nose with a little something luxe. (Above $50)
  3. Mrs No-Fuss: A nice little box from Crabtree & Evelyn filled with pick’n’mix Bath Gel, 2 x Hand Therapies, and a Body Lotion will allows her a bit of pleasure when she manages to find a quiet moment in the day. And she gets to choose from 4 scent ranges; Rosewater, Lily, Lavender, Wisteria. (Below $50)
  4. Mrs Quiet-Elegance: Any item you pick from Fresh’s Rose series would be a lovely sensorial treat for her skin AND her nose. My recommendation would be the Floral Toner and Face Mask to pamper, tone and refresh her skin. (Ranges from below to above $50)
  5. Mrs Ageless: Being busy and tired often means you need extra help in the skin department. Pick up a 75ml jumbo size Powerful Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate from Kiehl’s this May and let the 10.5% pure Vitamin C formula go to work on her skin tone, texture, radiance, and fine lines while protecting against future damage. And while you’re there, you might want to check out Super Multi-Corrective Cream, which contains jasmonic acid, hyaluronic acid, and beech tree extract to help retexturize, firm, and hydrate the skin at the same time. (Above $50)
  6. Mrs Radiant: VDL Lumilayer Primer is a quick and inexpensive treat to add an instant glow back to the skin when she doesn’t have the time to go for a facial. It feels fresh and works under AND over makeup. (Below $50)
  7. Mrs Yummy Mummy: YSL’s limited edition Rose Baby Doll nail lacquer and lip varnish are a gorgeously intense shade of rose. Not quite red, not quite fuchsia. Just very very chic and pretty. (Below $50 for one, above $50 for both)
  8. Mrs Sweetie-Pie: It doesn’t always take an expensive gift to make her feel happy. Something as simple as Too Faced’s Sweet Hearts blushes will bring a smile to her face simply because they’re so cute. (Below $50)
  9. Mrs Chic: Dior’s silver-quilted Nude Shimmer No 1 Rose compact makes quite the statement when she pulls it out for a mid-day touch-up, and the blush-pink shade looks pretty on most skins.
