The Essence of Nature is a tree sap patch brand of KJI that delivers wonderful energy of nature to human beings being the containing pure undulated solution extracted from clean natural resources.
How is sap made?
When trees are heated in the charcoal kilns, nature’s extract that is contained within the trees evaporates along the smoke. This essence is the captured an quickly refrigerated, ultimately leaving the extract which contains the various components of nature. This liquid extracted from trees, is called sap or forest sap.
Lavender Sap Patch
Lavender oil: it makes mind and body feels comfortable and induces a feeling of relaxation by releasing tension in the nerves.
Chitosan: it is a substance obtained from crab shell from regions such as Hokkaido, Japan etc. It is a naturally occurring water soluble macro-polymer with outstanding ability to form thin film to protect the skin.
Slimming Sap Patch
Agaricus: this is a mushroom from Brazil containing large quantities of B-Glucan, minerals, vitamins and amino acids, and heightens the immunity of the body. It is also effective against cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure and liver diseases etc.

I’ve been using V10 Plus serums for quite sometime now. Just a recap..
What is Vitamin-C?
Vitamin-C has many good effects on the skin. It helps the synthesis of collagen in the skin, so that the pores are minimized. It also improves inflammatory pimples. For skin beauty, apply Vitamin-C directly to the skin rather than take it orally, as in the latter case, large proportion of Vitamin-C is used in the body and not for the skin.
Vitamin-C is good for…
Pimples and pores. The Vitamin-C in v 10 Vitamin-C serum is a Vitamin-C derivative, which is stable and works efficiently. Also, it contains OBAKU which control sebum secretion.
What is Hyaluronic Acid?
Hyaluronic Acid is one of the main components of dermis and horny layer. It can hold 6 liters of water per 1 grams and it works to keep water in the skin. At the age of 60, Hyaluronic Acid will be about one third of what a baby has, but it decreases as you get older. So it is necessary to supply more of this moisturizing factor with age.
Hyaluronic Acid is good for…
Dry skin and inner dry. V 10 PLUS serum has a high reputation of permeability, because it contains lysolecithin (phosphatide), which speeds up the penetration into the skin, as it is the main component of cell membrane.
What is Pycnogenol?
Pycnogenol is a natural ingredient extracted from the bark of the French coastal pine in Southern France (Bordeaux). It has a great antioxidation effect, which is 350 times greater than Vitamin C and 170 times than Vitamin E.
Pycnogenol is good for…
Eliminating activated oxygen. It prevents your skin from any skin troubles caused by the activated oxygen and also remedies damages. Also, the functional characterization is that it strengthens the effects of vitamins, collagen, etc. V 10 PLUS Pycnogenol serum can be used as a fortification of your daily skin care.
Pricing is $128 for 30mL.
It’s not very expensive considering that a bottle can last me for roughly 3 months. The dropper cap is very useful for being able to dispense the exact amount you want. The bottles, which I totally adore, are made of glass material but it doesn’t break even when I accidentally dropped them. What I like most about the bottles, is that not only do they look colourful, but they are also transparent. Hence, we will know how much serum we are left with. There is also a marking indication on the bottle. (See photo)
When using beauty products it is wise to know exactly what is in the serum you will be applying. What I like most is that V10 plus serums do not contain paraben, chemical fragrance, artificial colour and mineral oil.
I applied the Vitamin C serum first, as it has the lightest texture, followed by Hyaluronic Acid serum, and lastly the Pycnogenol serum. (Ps: please wait for the serum to be completely absorbed before patting on the next one :p)
After using the Pycnogenol serum for 2 weeks now, my skin is noticeably glowy and hydrated and supple.

Earlier in the day, I received a memo from SingPost stating that I need to go to the Post Office to collect my bulky mail.
It’s really exciting to open up a parcel and revealing the contents. To my pleasant surprise, I received a parcel all the way from Korea. About a month ago, I was approached by a cosmetic company (Zymogen) from Korea to review their products. They not only distribute their products in Korea, but also other countries such as Japan, Hong Kong etc. So of course, I gladly accepted their offer to review their products.
I really like the fact that this Korean Company sent me newly manufacture products! Some companies sent products for reviews that are near expiry date. I mean, look, nobody likes to use products that are near expiry on their face right? So yup, kudos to Zymogen for sending me newly manufacture products!
Will do a blog post on these products soon! So stay tuned.
Sunsilk Nourishing Soft and Smooth
Due the harsh sun the hair is stripped off its essential oils, leaving it dry. Sunsilk Nourishing Soft & Smooth shampoo is the best shampoo for dry hair. It is enriched with Egg Ceramide Complex, which cleanses your hair and conditions even the driest hair leaving it soft & smooth.
Soft and smooth hair can now say ‘hello’ everyday.
Expert Tip for Soft & Smooth Hair:
Using the right hair conditioner is important for dry hair. Instead of rinsing off the conditioner after you shampoo, once a week, leave the conditioner in your hair on for the whole night and rinse off the next day. Watch your dry hair get a new life.
Sunsilk Smooth and Manageable
Enriched with Kerating Yogurt Nutri-Complex, this powerful yet lightweight formula manages and protects by coating the hair strands to shield and protect hair from humidity and the environment, making it manageably smooth all day long.
So I bought two different range of sunsilk products, shampoo and conditioner are from the Nourishing Soft and Smooth range (yellow range), while the leave on conditioner is from the Smooth and Manageable range (pink range). Reason: I couldn’t find the leave on conditioner from the yellow range. In fact, I’ve never seen one before actually.. Since both are from the ‘Smooth’ range I thought it would be fine to mix them up. All 3 products have the almost same scent, that is sweet, maybe a lil too sweet for some of you. But I like it <3
The shampoo and conditioner costs me about $13.90 if I'm not wrong, while the leave-on is only $1.95 from watsons.
The shampoo is rather foamy, and rinses out easily. After washing, I squeezed out excess water, applied the conditioner and leave it on for about 2 minutes before rinsing it out again. What I like about the conditioner is that it comes in a squeezable tube, hence it's very convenient. I don't really like conditioner that comes in a regular upright bottle. Reason, conditioner is a thick liquid. So it's like you have to wait ages to make the contents flow out! If you know what I mean? Anyway, after rinsing out the conditioner, I toweled dry my hair, and applied the leave on conditioner, and blew my hair dry. The leave on conditioner feels slightly sticky on the hair initially, but it will go off after my hair is dried. One thing that I don't like is that it takes a longer time to blow dry my hair after applying the leave on. So basically, I 'semi-blow-dry' my hair halfway, and leave the rest to dry naturally. Hair feels slightly smoother, but doesn't look as silky as when I apply hair serum/oil. 3 out of 5 stars, but if you are on a budget or if you have naturally silky hair, then these products are the right ones and they are really wallet friendly
I’m selling the Celebrity’s Choice Inchloss Body Cream Extra Strength at $23 per tube or $45 for a two. Usual retails for $33 each. Every purchase comes with a free gift. While stocks last. Meet up in Bedok, Simei or City Hall, or can be mailed. These products were purchased by me a couple of months ago for a friend. But she doesn’t want them anymore. Oh well. Anyway, expiry date is still a long way to go..in about 2 years time. Email me at email@example.com if you are interested. Thanks
I received this parcel consisting of Lavender Patch, slimming patch and Cure samples from Japalang.
