Cabin Crew Kit: Skincare secrets of flight attendants


I absolutely love flying and travelling. Travelling is one of my favourite things to do like I mentioned in my previous post "10 Things That Make Me Happy"! And I feel so blessed because I've been given countless of opportunities to spread my wings and take flight this year, something that I'm incredibly thankful for. In the past 8 or 9 months, I've travelled 7 times and I'm so looking forward to my next trip in October, when I'll be flying to SPAAAAIN!

Despite how much I love flying, there's a downside to it that I dread everything I fly. Long flight hours in the harsh and dry airplane cabins doesn't just make me feel dehydrated and tired, it creates havoc on my skin :(

I'm sure you have experienced it too. My skin usually goes crazy when after a long flight, and especially when I arrive in a foreign climate with dry weather conditions. It starts flaking, breaking out in little bumps and just being a total pain in the a**! :( Frequent flying really does take a toll on the skin, and I find that my skin has become drier and dehydrated.

But of course, dehydration doesn't just happen to those of us who fly regularly. If you spend hours in an air-conditioned office or you sleep in an air-conditioned room every night, you might realise that your skin has become dryer and duller too.

I've been looking out for skincare that can address hydration issues and I recently got to hear of Cabin Crew Kit skin care, which is a brand specifically tailored for frequent flyers whose skin is often exposed to harsh climate. The name caught my attention straight away, because don't we all want to know how those beautiful flight attendants keep their skin healthy and flawless, even with the long and harsh flight hours that they face?

Cabin Crew Kit is a formulation of US and Japan technology and made to address the major key concern of Hydration. Therefore, all the products are formulated to provide ample moisture while addressing other skin concerns! An extra dose of hydration for every series to ensure it solves the problem while providing ample moisture.

Cabin Crew Kit is also a dermatologist grade of products, but suitable for home use!

CabinCrewKit_Skincare-3
Here are some of the products that I got to try! As I don't have any major problems right now with acne, I didn't really use the Hydro Zit Gel long-term, which is meant to help clear acne and blemishes while hydrating at the same time.

Instead, I used the other two products: Nano Hydration Boost and Skin Renewal Serum.

CabinCrewKit_Skincare-4
Skin Renewal Serum

One of the products that caught my attention straight away was the Skin Renewal Serum. It is a multi-functional serum that exfoliates, repairs and hydrates, all at the same time! I don't think I've ever used a serum that exfoliates at the same time, so this is a first!

In any skincare regime, exfoliation is an extremely important step. When we remove dead tissue on the surface of the skin during exfoliation, this helps to minimise pores and reveal soft, smooth skin beneath for a more radiant glow.

The Skin Renewal Serum has a gentle approach in promoting the exfoliation of top layer of dry, dead skin cells, revealing newer and healthier skin. The appearance of wrinkles and fine lines is reduced, while stimulation of collagen synthesis helps to improve skin’s elasticity and youthful glow.

Application: Apply 2 full pumps evenly over cleansed face and neck. Avoid eyes area. For daily night use only. Due to the sun sensitivity in AHA elements, it is recommended to use sunscreen when you are out in the day. Suitable for all skin types. 


I like how the Skin Renewal Serum is almost liquidy in texture. Two pumps is quite a lot, so I personally use only one pump, which seems to be the perfect amount for me!

Upon application, I can feel a very slight prickling sensation, which is the glycolic acid content at work! It absorbs quickly into my skin and doesn't feel uncomfortable even on my sensitive skin. With usage over the past couple of weeks, I do feel that my skin has gotten more radiant and has improved in texture!

PS. This item is only to be used at night due to the sun sensitivity in its AHA ingredients. Also, always wear a sunblock in the day time as well to protect your skin!

CabinCrewKit_Skincare-5
The other item I've been using is the Nano Hydration Boost!

There are many triggers to skin sensitization and one of the biggest consequences of dry skin is an increase in sensitivity. When skin is dry, it’s depleted of its natural protective lipid barrier and lowers skin’s defenses against environmental assaults that can cause a sensitized reaction in skin, such as itching and redness. The double-action Nano Hydration Boost serum helps to replenish, recover and rejuvenate your dry or dehydrated skin condition.

If you're looking for ultra-hydration, I recommend the Nano Hydration Boost! This serum has the ability to effectively lock in moisture on our skin surface and prevents dehydration from happening.  Also, it's so gentle on the skin!

Application: Apply 1-2 pumps evenly over cleansed face and neck. Day and night use. Suitable for all skin type


I really like the texture of all the Cabin Crew Kit products I've tried. The Nano Boost Serum is another clear liquid that's equally light weight and I like how it fully absorbs into the skin with no greasy residue! It can be used both day and night, and I like to imagine it locking in all the moisture into my skin!

Pardon my no-makeup face, but I thought that'd be the best way to show you what the products have been doing for me! And this is also immediately after application at night of the Skin Renewal Serum (my favourite product) which I alternate with the Nano Boost Serum.

CabinCrewKit_Skincare-9
I personally feel that my skin has become more glowy with frequent usage! And of course, it is also improved in terms of its texture, I don't feel that my skin is so dry anymore.

CabinCrewKit_Skincare-11
These Cabin Crew Kit products aren't miracle products, they don't work immediately (i.e after just one usage), so I recommend you to use these products regularly for at least 2-3 weeks to see results!

CabinCrewKit_Skincare-12
Glad to find this range specially tailored for the frequent flyers. I'm packing this into my luggage on my next trip ;D


CabinCrewKit_Skincare-1
Cabin Crew Kit skin care products are available online on www.mycabincrewkit.com and prices range between S$72.00 to S$115.00!

Brunch at Rokeby Bistro

Rokeby Food Review Singapore
Hello everyone!

It's been quite some time since I did a cafe review! I've been to Rokeby Bistro quite a few times because it's literally a five minutes drive away from my place, those familiar with the area should know of the famous Jalan Riang, which also houses other popular eating places like Wimbly Lu and The Cajun Kings.

I like Rokeby, I think they serve up pretty good food, and it's a cozy, no-airs-about-it sort of place. I've tried quite a variety of dishes at Rokeby, and some of my favourites are:

Truffle fries: It's crispy shoestring fries (my favourite!) and has a strong enough aroma of truffle!
Chilli mussels: I'm a huge fan of mussels and these are surprisingly good. I really like the sauce that is sweet and spicy, it goes so well with the mussels!
Steak: We had the "Big Fat Bloke" and it's a very nicely done piece of steak, lightly flavoured and 
Fruits and Nutella Waffle: The waffle here isn't as buttery as Wimbly Lu's but it's a little lighter and so fluffy on the inside while staying crisp on the outside! And I always add a scoop of ice cream to make it extra delicious!

Oh, try the Vegemite Glazed Chicken for those who like the taste of Vegemite, those are really delicious with vegemite sauce on a crisply battered drumlet!

The drinks here are pretty good too, and I really like the smoothies, yum!

This place is great for Sunday afternoon chill-outs! Did I mention that there's no GST and service charge? Prices are very reasonable and I think it's good value-for-money!

ASUS ZenFone 5 LTE: The best value smartphone you can get for under $300!

One thing is for sure. After the invention of smart phones, I will never be able to get used to not having a smart phone anymore! 

Being a huge social media addict, there's so much I appreciate about smart phones. Fast internet connection, instant photo taking and editing, and tens of thousands of apps to make my life easier teehee. And I've recently gotten my hands on the latest ASUS ZenFone 5 LTE!

I've known ASUS for a long time due to their super awesome computers and laptops, but this is the first ASUS phone that I've tried. And you know what? It's really pretty amazing! 
This sleek beauty is everything you ever needed in a smart phone, from a 5" HD screen to 4G LTE capabilities that will allow for fast data access, not to mention an extremely dedicated camera function that has got a ton of built-in camera modes for great photos. And I think the best part about this phone is how accessible its pricing is. Even I was pleasantly surprised to see that the ZenFone 5 LTE is only retailing for less than $300 on ASUS's online store.

I got mine in a pretty and sleek Cherry Red!

Android users will find the ZenFone 5 LTE very easy to use as it's powered by Android. It took me little to no time at all to accustom myself to ASUS's ZenUI, which is very easy to navigate and to use.

One of my favourite things about the ZenFone 5 LTE is the camera function which is really impressive! There's a myriad of modes that you can select from: from Selfie, Miniature, Low Light, HDR, Panorama and more. It's practically idiot-proof and all you need to do is to select the right mode and start snapping away.

Asus_ZenPhone5LTE-8
I've been carrying the ZenFone 5 LTE around and testing out its functions and capabilities. Went out for brunch with dear Jazreel yesterday and I was showing off the cool camera functions to her!

Being the trigger-happy smart phone user that I am, I'm very much enjoying the ZenFone 5 LTE's great camera functions. For the foodies who like to snap photos of their food, the ASUS ZenFone 5 LTE does a brilliant job!

Asus_ZenPhone5LTE-4
The huge screen and easy-to-access modes and functions make the camera a breeze to use! There's also built-in Image Stabilization to ensure that you don't get shaky and blurred photos.

And you'd be surprised at the image quality! The below photos are all taken with the ASUS ZenFone 5 LTE and simply edited with my favourite camera app: VSCOcam.

We had fun playing with the different modes too, like Selfie mode and Beautification mode!

Selfie mode is pretty cool. You can set the number of faces to be detected, and once the camera detects those faces in the frame, it will set off an auto-timer! And you know how you always get blur/shaky looking selfies? With Selfie mode, the camera automatically takes three shots so you can pick the best one among the three!

Asus_ZenPhone5LTE-6
And you can beautify your photos straight away too!

There are options to make your face slimmer, eyes bigger and soften your complexion instantly!

Our selfie taken with the ASUS ZenFone 5 LTE!

And I have to share with you one of the most useful modes of the ZenFone 5 LTE. The Low Light Mode can take photos up to 400% brighter! I tested the Low Light mode when I was at the pub with my family (we damn happening one) and the place was actually really dimly-lit. Check out the difference between the left and right photo, with the left one taken in the regular camera mode and the right one taken in low-light mode!

Impressive isn't it?

Another favourite feature of mine on the ASUS ZenFone 5 LTE is the "Do It Later" function, which  is a smart To-Do list that allows you to keep track of what you have to do! And it's extremely cool cos it's not just keying in your own tasks manually, but you can add things automatically to your "Do It Later" list by tapping a button, such as replying a text message, making a phone call, or even watching a YouTube link.
Asus_ZenPhone5LTE-9Asus_ZenPhone5LTE-10
The "Do It Later" function is really helpful in managing tasks and to-do list! Especially when you're as forgetful and absent-minded as I am. It's such a convenient way to keep track of all the stuff I need to get done!

There are lots of other functions that I haven't gotten around to exploring, but this phone is a true gem! It's indeed the best value-for-money smartphone that I've tried. If you're looking for a smartphone with premium features and a beautiful sleek look but with a friendly price-tag of less than $300, the ASUS ZenFone 5 LTE is highly recommended!

Asus_ZenPhone5LTE-2
The ASUS ZenFone 5 LTE is available in Champagne Gold, Cherry Red, Pearl White and Charcoal Black ;)

Check out ASUS's online store here for more information and details about the ZenFone 5 LTE!
