White Day falls on the 14th of March, and it’s also known as 白色情人节!
Traditionally in Japan, this is the day that the guys reciprocate by returning gifts to the girls who presented them with Valentine’s Day gifts on February 14th.
We don’t have this kind of culture in Singapore though, haha. Usually, it’s the men who buy us flowers and presents on Valentine’s Day, so there isn’t any need for a White Day, is there?
I spent my White Day all decked out in… white of course, what else? Evonne and I attended Shiseido’s White Lucent Party, at their pop-up store that was outside Mandarin Gallery from the 8th-17th March!
Shiseido Singapore celebrated White Lucent’s 10th anniversary as well as its very own White Day for the third year in a row on March 14. This day is commemorated by giving women the gift of luminous skin and celebrates its love for pure, bright skin in this all-white affair!
The highlight of the event was an appearance by Jacelyn Tay, who was donning a fabulous white dress and looking absolutely radiant! We got to hear from the gorgeous beauty exactly how she keeps her skin looking so flawless and fair.
Some tips from Jacelyn Tay herself:
1. Get enough sleep, and sleep in a completely dark environment with no lights!
2. Drink lots of water
3. Mask regularly, you can even do it daily!
4. Serums are your best friend
5. Protect yourself from harmful sun rays by wearing sunscreen all the time
There were also short interviews with some of Shiseido’s White Lucent users, and I was really amazed because all of them had really really fantastic skin! Makes me want to buy the entire range immediately, I kid you not.
And featuring my full outfit:
Dress from ZARA (I bought it in Italy last year! Thinking of manufacturing something similar for TVD, yay?)
Prada Saffiano Lux in Lilac
Jeffrey Campbell heels, which i got from PVS at Cathay Cineleisure!
And here’s the star of the day: Shiseido’s White Lucent range, which was launched in 2003 and is still wildly popular til date! After seeing the flawless skin of White Lucent users and their own staff/trainers, I think I’m gonna go and grab some of these products real soon.
Happy 10th anniversary to Shiseido’s White Lucent! Thank you for having us there! ^.^
Speaking of skin,
As I’ve mentioned earlier, my skin has been breaking out horribly ever since about 2 months ago, and it is really extremely depressing.
I’ve always thought that my skin wasn’t the best, but now after all the never ending pimples on my cheeks and chin that’s been sprouting up non-stop the past few weeks, I can now honestly say that I REALLY MISS MY OLD SKIN :(((( Even though it was dull with clogged pores and a few pimples/blemishes here and there, it is nothing compared to the breakouts I’m having now. It’s like second puberty wtf. Now I really regret not treasuring my “not that bad” skin previously.
I have to resort to hiding my acne-ridden cheeks with my hair ;__; and of course makeup and concealer…
I’m still narrowing down the possibilities: could either be a reaction to one of my products, or maybe it’s my hormones going haywire. I just hope it recovers soon. Don’t even dare to use any of my new skincare products because I’m worried they might cause further breakouts. It’s terrible 🙁
Every night I pray I wake up to seeing better skin. Boohoo. Okay, I’m gonna stop whining now. Hahaha. Wish me all the best to recovering soon from bad skin, okay?
