Happy New Year! And a BIG Thank you!

2012 has been a very eventful year for me and my family. We have a new addition (Baby G) to the Uma Tribe and moved to a new country (Hong Kong). There is so much love in my life right now and I am so thankful for everything.

Thank you guys for visiting my site even though I am not as active as I used to be. Thank you so much for your patience and encouragement.

We would like to wish all of you a very Happy New Year. May 2013 be an awesome year! Let's start afresh!

See you soon in 2013!

Be safe and enjoy...

Skincare routine (in Hong Kong)

I am very blessed to get lovely comments about my skin from you viewers and people around me.To be honest, I do not do anything out of the blue to achieve good skin. I use products from a reputable brand, eat right, drink plenty of water and (force myself to) feel happy. Comparing to how my skin was 1 year ago, I am pretty impressed with how it is now. I still remember, the pimples and zits that popped up overnight due to the raging pregnancy hormones. (Click here & here for a pics where you can see my 'bad' skin!)

Here is a video where I show you the products I use on a daily basis. This is my new skincare routine suited for Hong Kong climate.

The above are the two products I use for cleansing my face twice a day. Hong Kong is polluted and it is important to wash and keep the skin as clean as possible.

1) Nippon Kodo Pelican Charcoal facial soap bar 
2) Sigma face polishing tool (Click HERE for review)

The above are the products I use as part of my skincare routine.

1) Clinique Repair Laser Focus Wrinkle & UV Damage Corrector (face serum)
2) Clinique Repair Laser Focus Wrinkle Correcting eye cream (eye)
3) Clinique Repair wear Uplifting Firm (face)
4) Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant (lips, face, nails)

Hope you found this post useful and let me know if you are or are thinking about using Clinique products as part of your skincare. 

Have a pleasant week.
