I’m looking forward to attending a Facial Remodelling Workshop conducted by facial remodelling expert, Dr Z, next Friday. At the workshop, he will educate us on Botox and fillers as well as do live demonstrations on 2 lucky attendees!
I’ve seen Dr Z in action before, in fact, I was a patient of his – he helped smoothen out the bump on my nose with two quick and painless injections of fillers. Facial remodelling is the latest non-invasive, non-surgical facial enhancement treatment with no down-time.

Due to my anti aging website, ReviewAntiAging.com, I am constantly inundated by anti aging products from aesthetic doctors and skincare companies. My vanity table looks like a science lab full of bottles, serums, lotions and what-nots. Sometimes, I stand in front of it and spend five minutes deciding what to use. But, hey, I’m not complaining though! Here’s a breakdown of my favourite anti aging products.
What I like:
georgialee facial scrub
georgialee Facial Scrub – It boasts bigger than normal granules, but does not feel abrasive and I love how squeaky clean it makes my skin feel.
Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour cream
Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream – Ultra-nourishing lotion with an addictive lemongrass scent.
georgialee facial wash
georgialee Lightening Face Wash – This cleanser does a great job of cleaning without any suds. It also has lightening benefits!
Can’t Live Without:
Viscontour Serum – Only available from the doctors, this is a dream come true for my oily skin. Imagine a moisturizer without the grease. Made from Hyaluronic Acid, it forms a barrier similar to how skin naturally holds water in the intercellular matrix.
Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Gold Ultra-lift & Strengthening Eye Serum
Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Gold Ultra-lift & Strengthening Eye Serum - Love its individually packed serum capsules which is great for travelling. This is an effective remedy for undereye wrinkles and its light texture is quickly absorbed into skin.
Proactiv Repairing Lotion
Proactiv Repairing Lotion – This has been my staple for the last 10 years and it helps keep pimples at bay.
Most people think that they should only start using anti aging products when they are in their 40s or when they get wrinkles and saggy skin. That is a myth.
In fact, anti aging is all about “freezing” your face when it is still in a good condition, not when it falls apart then do something about it. Maintanence is better than cure so we should start using anti aging products when we are in our early 20s.
Start with easy-to-use products like eye creams and a night moisturiser. The area around the eye is thin so extra care should be taken early to prevent wrinkles from appearing there. A good moisturiser is essential at night to rejuvenate and hydrate skin, especially when you sleep in an air-conditioned room. Sun block is also a must even if the weather outside is overcast.
Aging younger is a possibility if you start an anti aging regime early!
I attended Elizabeth Arden’s Prevage workshop where I, together with 14 other online influencers, were treated to a preview of its latest anti aging treatment – Prevage. I felt really privileged as we are amongst the first few in Asia to be able to test out the product.
Bloggers posing for the camera
It was really fun to meet all the online influencers – bloggers, youtube stars and active forumers – everyone an avid beauty fan…and so young! Most were in their early 20s and I felt like an aunty. They were also incredibly professional, immediately whipping out their cameras and snapping away for their blogs.
Elizabeth Arden’s presentation was very informative and I learnt many new words – namely idebenone and EPF.
Idebenone: The key ingredient in Prevage, it is one of the most powerful and effective antioxidants in the market today and is the bio-engineered version of co-enzyme, Q10, our body’s own free radical quencher. It is used to treat Alzheimer’s disease as well as preserve organs for transplant. It is now used in Prevage to preserve the cells on our face!
EPF: This stands for Environmental Protection Factor and is the first ever protocol, developed by a group of scientists, to measure the oxidative stress protection efficacy. Prevage received an EPF rating of 95 out of 100.
Prevage Night cream
I tried the Prevage night cream which smelt slightly medicinal and was orange in colour, thanks to the idebenone. The cream felt very rich and luxurious on my skin . However, as I already have oily skin, it felt slightly heavy. The trick is to apply it just before I sleep in my aircon room and let it work its magic as I slept. I woke up with softer skin and the fine lines under my eyes were smoothened out.
