Sponsored Review: Esemtan Wash Lotion & Esemtan Skin Balm

Hey everyone!

Recently, I was introduced to German Brand, Schulke and specifically to their bodycare products, namely Esemtan Wash Lotion and Esemtan Skin Balm.

Esemtan Wash Lotion is a universal lotion for washing the body, face and hair. Basically, you can regard it as a 'All-in-1' lotion and a product like this is perfect for people who cannot be bothered with using too many products.

The wash lotion protects the skin from irritation without compromising on the skin's natural moisture. It also contains Allantoin and is thus PH neutral as well as soapless.

You will be glad to hear that this product is suitable for all skin types and people of all ages. Therefore, if you have sensitive skin, you need not worry about harming your skin with harsh agents because this wash lotion is gentle enough for your skin. It also contains a pleasant and mild fragrance.

Besides using it as a regular shower product, you can use it for hand washing as well. Simple pour some wash lotion onto your palm; add water to create a froth; wash your hands thoroughly before rinsing and drying. It's as simple as A,B,C and it cleans your hands in a jiffy.

Because this is such a huge bottle of wash lotion that can last me for a long while, I prefer to use it as a shower gel. After using the wash lotion in the shower, I'll follow up with the Esemtan Skin Balm on my body.

The Esemtan Skin Balm replenishes the skin with oil-in water emulsion and helps to lock moisture in the skin. It contains urea which serves as a moisturizing agent and also helps to increase the rate of cell renewal.

Best of all, it helps to reduce irritation and itch which is great for curbing those random night itches that I have on my legs.

Personally, I really like how quickly the product gets absorbed into my skin and how my skin felt so smooth and soft when I wake up the next day. Like the Esemtan Wash Lotion, the Skin Balm is suitable for all skin types and children can use this too. The product is also accompanied with an extremely mild fragrance.

My only gripe with the products is the packaging. I wished they would look more attractive because they do remind me of dermatological/clinical products that you see in hospitals. They probably were meant for that purpose considering that the founders of the brand were pioneers in hospital hygiene but I guessed they could do with a prettier packaging if they're out there competing with the other bodycare products for sale. When it comes to getting consumers to part with their money, physical appeal plays a part too.

Interested to purchase?

Esemtan Wash Lotion retails at $19.75 for a 500ml bottle while the Esemtan Skin Balm retails at $20 for a 500ml bottle.

Both products can be found conveniently at Watsons, Guardian, Unity, Pink Beauty, Beauty Essential and National Healthcare Group.

Event: Launch of Microsoft Windows 10 @ 72-13

Hey everyone!

Few days back, I was invited by Microsoft SG to attend the Launch of Microsoft Windows 10 @ 72-13 and my oh my, it was a really happening party. *bobs head and raises hands with rocker sign.

The new Windows 10 was co-created with over 5 million fans and contains innovations such as Cortana, Microsoft Edge, an Xbox app etc. It is also the most secure Windows Microsoft has released, particularly with their latest security developments that safeguard against viruses and malware.

Additionally, Windows 10 will be available as a free upgrade for Windows 7 and 8 users for a period of one year.

For more upgrading details, you can check out Microsoft's website here. People who have reserved their upgrade to Windows 10 will be notified in waves when the upgrade is ready to be installed.

As for those who do not qualify for the upgrade but still want to upgrade their software, Windows 10 Home costs $229 while Windows 10 Pro costs $399.

There were actually a lot of guests in 72-13 so it was honestly very packed. I was glad that we bloggers had a holding area at MEMO @ Studio M to shy away from the crowd for a while.

MEMO Sandwiches which tasted so damn good with their egg mayo + tuna + avocado combination.

Love their smoothies as well. I can never get enough of them. Thank you Microsoft SG team for the dinner treat. <3

Oh yes, and thank you for the hip goodie bag too. :)

It's so late now so I better turn in because I've got an early day tomorrow. Goodnight world!
