GlamoGirl’s Glam Rocks! Party at Naumi Hotel
The recent visit by the esteemed British royals Prince William and Kate Middleton sparked a new wave of British culture and couture in Singapore.
And just when we thought our whirlwind romance with the English is over…
We are about to witness another British invasion by our young and glamorous GlamoGirl!
While on a trip up to Great Britain, GlamoGirl fell into a starry love affair with all things English. Unafraid to bring her love baggage home, she flew back to Singapore with her treasure trove of beauty products, chief among them were brands such as Dirty Works and Exposed.
And I was very honored to be invited to GlamoGirl’s Glam Rocks! party at the Executive Patio Suites at Naumi Hotel to try out these new British beauty goodies. Woohoo!
To remember this joyous gathering, GlamoGirl has requested that we all sign on her lip-shaped guest board before we grab our cocktails.
And there I met the friendly Elrica.
We camwhored in GlamoGirl’s classy and pretty bathroom.
Her bathroom was 60s inspired with classy ornaments that reminded me of Audrey Hepburn’s elegant and timeless style in the movie ‘ Breakfast at Tiffany’s’.
We noticed GlamoGirl was already using some of the Dirty Works skincare and body products. No wonder she is glowing with radiance lately!
To make us feel at home, GlamoGirl requested that we all change into the comfortable Glam Rock! bejeweled t-shirts and fluffy bedroom slippers that she had prepared for us.
That girl is so thoughtful!
And so we did.
Her room took on a different theme.
Instead of the classy 60s look, it had a more heavy metal edge to it with electric guitars as its centerpiece.
To make sure we do not miss out on any great product, GlamoGirl has divided her suite into three stations –Wet Works, Dry Works and Mani / Pedi stations where we got to try Dirty Works’ body and skin care products, and Exposed’s range of trendy professional nail lacquers.
She also engaged the help of her friends to act as our guide for each station!
At this station, we got wet and wild with Dirty Works’ skincare and bath products – from scrubs to washes to face masks!
Here is the list of Dirty Works products introduced in this station.
All of a Lather Body Wash, SGD 8.90 (200ml)
Buff your Stuff Scrub, SGD11.90 (200ml)
Glow Girl Buttery Salt Scrub, SGD15.90 (300ml)
Gently Does It Face Wipes, SGD8.90 (25 wipes)
Wake Up Call face Wash, SGD11.90 (150ml)
Pore-fect Face Scrub, SGD15.90 (125ml)
Belle of the Ball Face Mask, SGD19.90 (100ml)
The fancy names and the old Hollywood inspired packaging of the Dirty Works products definitely works well for me.
They make me want to jump out of bed every morning for my ‘wake up call’ face wash and sashay out the door with confidence after using my Glow Girl Buttery Salt Scrub!
Wow! More good-looking products to brighten my day!
After all the scrubbing and washing from the Wet Works station, we were introduced to the Dry Works station where we were offered diva-style pampering with a variety of Dirty Works lotions and creams for maximum moisturization.
Here is the list of Dirty Works products introduced in the Dry Works station.
Youth Sexy Thing Day Cream, SGD18.90 (50ml)
Supreme Cream Body Butter, SGD15.90 (300ml)
Coconut Caress Body Butter, SGD15.90 (300ml)
Bling it On! Shimmer Lotion, SGD19.90 (200ml)
Bare Necessity Body Lotion, SGD11.90 (300ml)
Rumpy Plumpy Lip Pumper, SGD14.90 (8ml)
You Soft Touch Hand Cream, SGD8.90 (100ml)
My favorites of the pile are the Coconut Caress Body Butter for its delicious coconut fragrance and the Bling it On! Shimmer Lotion for its dual functions – the lotion adds shimmers and sparkles while hydrating the skin.
Mani /Pedi Station
We arrived at our final station to be treated to a nice manicure session with nail polish from Exposed Professional Nail Lacquer.
I heard it was love at first sight for GlamoGirl! The glam goddess liked the nail polishes so much that she brought back 72 yummy colors from the popular UK nail polish brand.
We also helped ourselves to some yummy canapes and dessert specially prepared by GlamoGirl!
Before we left the party, GlamoGirl generously gifted us a huge goodie bag filled with yummylicious beauty treats.
Get Set Go Mini Luxuries
The arrival of the bath essentials travel pack is timely as I’m going on a short trip soon! No more lugging heavy bottles of full sized shower gels and lotions.
Exposed Professional Nail Lacquer (Lavender Lace and Hot Stuff)
Great colors for funky french manicure or polka dot designs!
This is not all!
I mentioned that I was a huge fan of the body scrub and body lotion at the party and the next thing I know???
GlamoGirl sent me a Glamogirl hamper with the body scrub and lotion in it! She’s the best girlfriend and hopefully yours soon too. *wink*
Dirty Works Supreme Cream Body Butter
Rich yet lightweight, Dirty Works’ Supreme Cream Body Butter contains Shea Butter and Sweet Almond Oil to leave your skin feeling silky smooth all day long. Too much is definitely never enough!
Aqua, Cetearyl Alcohol, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Glyceryl Stearate, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Glycerin, Parfum, Cyclopentasiloxane, Imidazolidinyl Urea, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Hexyl Cinnamaldehyde, Linalool, Limonene, Citronellol, Geraniol, Eugenol.
Retails at: SGD 15.90 (300 ml) Afterthoughts… The texture of the body butter is rather thick so it takes a bit of rubbing to spread and blend the cream evenly. Despite this small downer, the cream leaves a sweet-smelling fragrance on my body and, best of all, my skin stayed hydrated till I rinsed the cream off with soap.
For its long lasting moisturizing properties and sweet scent, 3.5 Honeyz crowns!
Buff Your Stuff Scrub
OFF WITH THE OLD; UNVEIL THE NEW!
Scrub a dub dub. Say hello smooth you’re in the groove!
You’ll love this creamy scrub – it buffs roughness away and conditions the skin with Sweet Almond Oil, Shea Butter and Vitamin E.
INGREDIENTS: Sucrose, Aqua, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond Oil), Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Sucrose Distearate, Glycerin, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Xanthan Gum, Parfum, Hexyl Cinnamaldehyde, Linalool, Limonene, Citronellol, Geraniol, Eugenol.
Retails at: SGD 11.90 (200 ml)
Afterthoughts… Doctors have recommended that the best way to eradicate body acne is to exfoliate regularly with a body scrub. As such, I go for body scrub treatments every month to maintain my skin.
Lately, I have come to realize that this is a rather expensive ‘fixed expenditure’ and this has urged me to look for a cheaper alternative.
So imagine my excitement when I saw the body scrub in my hamper. Only one word was spinning in my head and that was ‘PERFECT’.
The body scrub carries the same sweet-smelling fragrance as the Supreme Cream Body butter and I immediately became a fan.
Even though the beads were pretty huge, they did not irritate my skin. The shea butter and almond in the scrub left my skin feeling soft and the massage from the beads stimulated my skin to give off a more radiant complexion.
4 Honeyz crowns!
3 in 1 Base, Top & Hardener, Professional Nail Lacquer #72
Exposed professional nail lacquer’ is formulated by Fiabila Nail Technologies of Paris ensuring the highest quality standard at the best possible price.
Free from the Toxic Trio formaldehyde, DBP & toluene
Retails at: SGD 12.00 (15 ml)
This is perfect for the price conscious and the lazy bums. Haha! Why? Because the clear nail polish plays triple roles by acting as a base coat, top coat and a hardener all at once.
My gelish nails usually last about three weeks but to make sure the polish doesn’t chip early due to my soft nails, I’ll apply a top coat every 3 days. The 3 in 1 nail polish came in handy as it is not only a top coat, it is a hardener too. So this means longer lasting gelish nails for me!
This is my gelish nail after 3 weeks.
After applying a thin coat of Exposed 3 in 1, my nails immediately looked shiny and glossy. I thought it brought the dull nail ‘back to life’!
Juxtaposed my painted gelish nail with an unpainted gelish nail for your comparison.
See the difference??
It’s been 5 days since I applied the nail polish and my soft nails have not chipped! For its affordable price and triple benefits, I give it 4.5 Honeyz crowns!
Thanks GlamoGirl for the Glam Rocks! invitation and the wonderful hamper.
You’ve made me a very happy girl!
Correction. You’ve made all of us very happy girls!
