Eye Rejuvenation with BTL Exilis Ultra 360 at 2 Shy Beauty Pte. Ltd. - Sweet Bunny



I have been called names like panda and given remarks such as you look like you have been punched, all thanks to my horrid dark eye circles. Plagued by these unsightly dark marks under my eye I went on a search for a solution…

I found 2 Shy Beauty Pte. Ltd back in 2019 on Carousell and went for V- Shape treatment which was very effective and lasting, a friend of mine commented that even after my wedding, my face has maintained its shape and I looked great.

How to identify and avoid counterfeit beauty equipment used in beauty salons- Ever since then, 2 Shy has gained my trust, As the owner of the salon, Constance shares with me that she only uses medical-grade trademarked equipment in her shops, all her staff are specially trained and are certified to operate all the equipment, there are many dubious beauty types of equipment out there so much be aware and cautious as we never know what side effects they cause in the long run. Always do your homework and check that the machines used at a beauty salon are from a reputable source. Constance also encompasses her values on being healthy from the inside out she always advises her customers to have a well-balanced diet as well as to drink plenty of water as she envisions her stores to be health hub rather than just the ordinary beauty salon.

After consulting Constance about my eye circles I was referred to a beautician named Yan stationed at the Serangoon branch where I had BTL Exilis Ultra 360 treatment for my face. I like the shop as it has a very cozy ambience, it is also very clean as the beauticians clean and tidies up after every customer.

Get younger and tighter skin with BTL EXILIS ULTRA 360 Non-Surgical Facelift –This treatment is a non-invasive skin tightening treatment that stimulates collagen production by the combination of radiofrequency and ultrasound that can help stimulate and strengthen skin resulting in smoother skin. I have a preference for non-invasive treatments as I do not want to go under the knife for surgery nor do I like to inject fillers into my face, BTL Exilis Ultra 360 is the best solution for me. I have done the treatment about 3 times and have seen that my eye circles have lightened slightly and the fine lines on my forehead that have begun to appear earlier on this year as I age, reduced. With time there will be further improvements about 2 months time. The best part is there is no downtime you can go about your busy schedule right after a session.

 How does BTL Exilis Ultra 360 work- The beauty of BTL Exilis Ultra 360 is that the therapy can be done from head to toe; commonly treated areas are eyes, jawline, back, inner-thigh parts that I know of you may need to consult either Dixon or Constance regarding the best course for you. This anti-ageing skin tightening treatment which diffuses ultrasound in combination with radiofrequency allows more transmission of energy and greater conductivity of the heat to the treatment area. There is a big applicator and small applicator specially designed when in use on the body it heats and reduces fat in the deep layers without hurting the skin. The treated area will effectively stimulate collagen and elastin for skin tightening and reduce the fine lines on the face. It also increases fat reduction which is efficient for body contouring and cellulite reduction.

This therapy feels like a hot stone spa treatment, I really enjoyed each session as the beautician Yan is very attentive and gentle. No hard-selling is ever done at 2 Shy, making it a trustworthy and comfortable environment to be in. Other than looking a little flush in the cheeks just like I went for a jog there is no other side effect, I encountered and highly recommend you to give it a go.

Best Eyebrow Embroidery by Ibrow Studio Bishan - Sweet Bunny



Getting my makeup done before work is part of my morning ritual, I used to spend excessive time drawing and filling up my eyebrows. While my natural brows are thick in the front it rather spares towards the ends. I would take up to a good 15 to 20 minutes to complete the daunting task of ensuring that they were as symmetrical as possible.

Professional beauticians at work - Enough was enough; I decided to semi-permanently fix my brows. I have been heading to Ibrow studio (Bishan Branch) for the past year or so for eyebrow threading, I loved that the therapist was very professional, they were patient, kind and highly skilled individuals, always reassuring me and consoling me when I apologised for tearing up. They also gently mentioning other services they provided and had never hard-selling packages to me.



Past experience with bad beauticians - I do tend to tear up or cringe when I get my threading done; I guess my tolerance for pain has dwindled over the years. This might have easily frustrated a beautician as I have experience in the hdb salons in Ang Mo Kio, the beautician got so frustrated she threw down the thread what a loud AH YA and chose to pluck my hairs instead. She didn’t do a very good job giving me uneven eyebrows and rushing through the process. I do suggest you try out a salon to test their skills or check reviews online to ensure that you select the right beautician especially if you are getting embroidery done, I have heard of cases of scaring, brows turning green or red after careless work.



What you need to know about eyebrow embroidery - Eyebrow embroidery or micro-blading is a process where a tiny needle punctures into a layer of your skin and dye is inserted. Always make sure the salon practice good hygiene. Nicole the beautician from Ibrow studio showed me that she started with a brand new needle which is very critical. Disposable needles and blades are best to avoid transition of diseases. I have also noticed that Nicole mixed a fresh coat of ink in time and wore gloves for the entire process.

I also noticed that the salon had a UV steriliser which assured me even more.

The procedure of micro-blading / eyebrow embroidery – Nicole showed me the service menu along with examples of each design, she explained that each price range is for different designs namely –

· Embroidery Incl: 1 Touch Up + Recover Cream

· Misty Brow Incl: 1 Touch Up + Recover Cream

· 3D Creative Incl: 1 Touch Up + Recover Cream

· Natural Floating Incl: 1 Touch Up + Recover Cream

· Korean Exquisite Nude Brow Incl: 1 Touch Up+ Recover Cream



I chose the Misty Brow Design because I felt it looked most natural. After analysing my eyebrows and drawing out the desired design Nicole applied a numbing cream onto my skin she allowed it to set into the skin for about 15 minutes before working on inking in my brows. The process took about an hour and was relatively painless. The finished product was a super-duper dark pair of eyebrows, she assured me that after scabbing of the skin the shade would be natural after the scabbing cycle of the skin which takes about 2 weeks. She gave me a bottle of wound healing gel to apply on to my brows daily, it doesn’t help with pain or itching but it aids in the healing process.

Dos and Don’ts after eyebrow embroidery

· Do wash and cleanse your face but avoid the eyebrows area

· Avoid contact with water in the eyebrow area

· Avoid direct sunlight

· Avoid exercise and sweating as it will affect the colour of your eyebrows for the first week after.

· Avoid scratching or forcing scabs to drop off allow it to do so naturally

· Avoid using whitening products around the eyebrow area.

Second touch up of eyebrow embroidery As a first-timer I was inexperienced with caring for my eyebrows, I did meddle with the scabs resulting in the slightly faded tip and front. Luckily 3 months later was touch uptime. It was admittedly more painful the first even with numbing cream, perhaps because the skin around my eyebrows were a layer thinner. Nicole was very considerate and tried her best to make the process as comfortable as possible by adding more numbing cream. Overall I love my completed brows, just as the first round scabbing for 2 weeks and wow la the final product. I was told that embroidery needs to be touched up every year but for the price of not drawing in my brows every day, it was totally worth it!

DIY Dental Care ? Use Charcoal Powder With Caution - Sweet Bunny

Promoting whitening and cleaning products. Having worked in the dental industry for 6 years when I was younger. On social media, I have seen a vast amount of DIY dental kits and hacks. I tend to get sceptical about such products and methods. Do they cause more harm than good?

Let me start with the anatomy of a tooth; a tooth is made of many layers. The topmost layer is called the enamel. The enamel is the hardest part of the tooth. It is translucent, and you can see the light through it. The central portion of the tooth is dentine which provides the tooth with its natural colour, which may be grey or yellowish, so our teeth are not naturally white but come in various shades.
