Guide: How To care for Leather bags with Saphir Renovateur

Here’s a question to my fellow ladies out there; if you could only have just one accessories for the rest of your life, what would it be? I’m almost certain that most would answer their handbags! It’s simple to see why.. our handbags are functional and stylish too. Sometimes, it even functions as a status symbol. Think for your example our previous First Lady *ahem*  Rosmah, who is famed for owning quite a number of Birkin bags.

If handbags are so important to us, what’s even more important after purchasing them is caring for it to ensure that the lifespan of these precious bags are extended to the longest possible time. I cannot emphasize how disappointed I am whenever my favourite bag breaks apart. The worse part of that experience is when you’re not able to ever find a replacement for it!

Before I was introduced to Saphir Renovateur, I was oblivious to the fact that handbags actually require care and maintenance too…. albeit it being relatively low maintenance. The folks at ShoeTree Project have set me up with a couple of goodies but today I will share about what is known as the liquid gold  of leather care products.

Saphir Renovateur

A quick search of the Saphir Renovateur will bring up results for using the leather cleaner and conditioner on leather shoes. What you didn’t know is that you can use it on handbags as well, which I believe is a fairly new knowledge to most ladies. I remember I had a friend who posted for help after realising her leather bag are in a horrible condition because of the lack of leather conditioner used.

If I was her, I know I’d be so frustrated and hugely upset over what happened. But fret not, as these could actually be prevented by quite a few simple steps to care for your precious bag. All you need is a piece of cloth and of course, Saphir Renovateur.

How to Use

As I mentioned it’s relatively easy to use the product on your precious bags and the whole process takes less than 10 minutes, tops! Of course, a little disclaimer here as the time taken would also depend on the size of your bag as well the attention to detail that you’d like. At the side of the product, there is a pictorial guide on how to use it.

I find it amusing that this product was probably produced with an intention for leather care for bags but ended up, becoming more known for the leather shoes care instead. I said that because of the guide on how to use the product is focused just on a seemingly similar to a Hermes design bag. Nevertheless, I’m here to share how to use this product today … specifically catered for your leather bags. There are only four simple steps and;

Step 1: It begins with finding a suitable cloth where you’ll be dabbing some product on it.
Step 2: Next, apply the product on the bag in, ideally a circular motion to ensure that the Saphir Renovateur is applied evenly on your bag.
Step 3: Wait for a couple minutes, the recommended waiting time appears to be 3 minutes as per the guide.
Step 4: Using a clean cloth, lightly wipe the bag all over to ensure that any residue of the product have been spread across across the bag evenly.

And that’s it to that! Sounds super easy eh, it really is. I like to think of this essential care step as being an investment. Let’s put things into perspective, if I had spent so much to get that dream leather bag, I’d be sure to do my best to prolong its useful life. This is probably also the accountant in me speaking but trust me, I really am an accountant and truly, this is also the best way to maximise your every dollar.

What is it?

By now, you have read about how to use the product; Saphir Renovateur but you may wonder what is it actually? It’s actually a blend of all-natural mink oil, lanolin, and beeswax, which by the way smells rather amazing. The mink oil helps to rejuvenate leather thoroughly and completely. This is why the product is both a leather cleaner and conditioner unclogs pores for deeper penetration into the leather.

Left : After | Right : Before

The result from the application of the product will leave a soft matte finish as a result of it containing small amount of waxes. My partner is no stranger to this product as he uses it to care for his leather shoes. When I showed him the comparison picture of the before and after using the product on my bag, he was able to point out which picture was after the application of the product. Once you understand what the product does to your bag, then you’ll notice the difference. It’s important to understand that product does not add shine to your bag, which was my initial expectation. However, as I read more about it I realised what the product was designed to do.


Priced at S$28.00, I would say that it’s a minimal investment to make in view of the upside derived from it. Like almost every product we use, it’ll get worn out from the daily usage and without proper care and maintenance, even the highest quality product will succumb to it. And that is why I’d recommend getting the Saphir Renovateur; it’s a simple, quick and very easy way to maintain your loved leather products! It’s a plus point that it smells so good too. :)

You can shop for this on ShoeTree Project, where you’ll find an array of other leather products. The ShoeTree Project are shoe aficionados and they have found that the best shoe care products were notoriously missing in Singapore, or could only be found at inconvenient retail stores. Hence, just like the quintessential shoe tree, The ShoeTree Project strives to make your fine leather shoes last a lifetime by bringing personalized, high-quality shoe care right to your doorstep.

Beauty : All About the Althea’s Pore Purifying Serum Cleanser

In my latest post, I shared about how Althea have been on a roll, churning out beauty products one after another. It amazes me so much in terms of how the efficient the production line is from the idea to the concept to the R&D and of course, the final result! Althea has introduced yet another product which is the Pore Purifying Serum Cleanser which combines both a cleanser and serum! I’ll elaborate more on this cleanser in my review below but just wanted to share the links to all the other reviews of the Althea’s products here.

What is it?

It’s designed as a cleanser and serum which helps to remove make-up and impurities. The product dubbed as a beauty superhero by Althea whisks away makeup, dirt, and oil with mint extracts. The serum-like formula ensures that the skin stays cool and hydrated throughout the day with the dual moisture cell system the product was designed with. This product is gentle on the face and hence, it’s suitable for sensitive skin and helps balance the pH levels of the skin to keep it working in tip-top shape!

How to use?

The instructions have stated that the product is meant to be used by firstly wetting your face and then applying the product in small amounts. Then gently massage in circular motions for 5-10 seconds before rinsing off with water.


When it comes to the removal of make-up, we have seen the evolution of such cleanser as well as the many different variations of it. This version feels like it’s closer to micellar water where it’s clear, looks like water and feels like it as well. Of course, it’s not just water and when you apply the product on your face, you’ll find the make up dissolving.

To test how well it removes make up, I did a simple experiment with a cotton pad soaked with the product and a face with moderate make up on. I tested this specifically on my eye area, where I wore eyeshadow and eyeliner. What I did next was just to simply swipe the cotton soaked pad over my eyes.

To my absolute surprise, I would say close to all my eye make up was removed with just one swipe! I’m indeed impressed that the product was able to do so because it’s fast and effective, very much suitable after a long day and you just want to be in your bed, sleeping.

My only complaint is that because it has mint element in it, it actually stings a bit when the product gets into parts of your inner eye. If used with caution, I believe you can minimize this, hut however I would say it’s not feasible so my recommendation is instead to use it at other parts of your face.

Where to buy?

You can get it directly from the Althea’s site and I have included the link here for your ease; Pore Purifying Serum Cleanser | S$ 11.00  or  Pore Purifying Serum Cleanser | RM35.00.

Beauty : Here’s The Body Sparkling Mist that Keeps You Fresh

In the last year, it has been quite a exciting year for Althea especially so if you’ve been following their exclusive releases where they launched quite a range of products. Here are some of them which I wrote reviews on, feel free to read through them as the review would allow you to understand better about their products as well as my thoughts on using them.

This time around, Althea released yet another product but it’s a special one as it’s their first ever collaboration with a celebrity from Indonesia. Meet Stay Fresh Body Sparkling Mist by Titi Kamal and Althea. Titi Kamal is an Indonesian actress and singer who is uber stylish and has a knack for fashion and style. She’s most recognized by the luxuriously long black hair, which she has maintained for 10 years as it’s stipulated in her contract  to maintain her iconic look. No wonder, she’s been invited to collaborate with Althea on a product which embodies her elegance and of course, her essence. No pun intended here!

What is it?

As the name suggests, this product is a spray-on body mist which has fruity and floral notes with its ingredients being derived from Damask rose water, Orange flower extract and Elder flower extract. The rose water helps to keep the skin hydrated and gives a gentle fragrance. Meanwhile, the orange flower extract refreshes the senses, giving it that tangy smell. The last key ingredient is the elder flower extract cools and soothes the skin with hints of feminine scent. It’s suitable for all skin types and comes in a size of 100ml.

How to use?

Super easy! Just spray on your body. Well, that is true but it’s best to spray after you shower and before you ideally leave the house because you’ll feel and smell amazing too! As the product is portably sized, you can bring it along with you to give yourself a quick refresher of scent. <3


I love how feminine the product was designed, in a shade of colour that obviously would appeal to the ladies alike. As with most of Althea’s product, this one was also sealed with a sticker which came in handy to obviously prevent leakages. After the first usage, you’ll need to remove the sticker for your ease of convenience. But rest assured as the cap seals quite tightly on its own as well.

In terms of the scent, I’m actually a person who is quite fussy with scents that can get too overwhelming so I found this to be mild, gentle and really refreshing. I love how the it starts out with a whiff of significant floral notes and mellowed down to a base note of a mild fruity scent. It’s a very easy-going scent and this is coming from someone who doesn’t use body mist. Even perfumes are a rarity, I only use one type which is the one with baby powder scent!

Where to buy?

You can get it directly from the Althea’s site and I have included the link here for your ease of Stay Fresh Sparkling Mist (Singapore) | S$ 11.60  or  Stay Fresh Sparkling Mist (Malaysia) | RM35.00.

Beauty: How I got addicted to Althea’s Milk Peel Cream Mask

When we talk about peel cream, it’s one of those products that I feel is most often overlooked or not considered in many beauty regimes mainly because there is a lack of understanding over what it actually does for your skin. Face peels can actually help with a plethora of problems, from pigmentation to scarring, hydration to acne, skin texture to fine lines and wrinkles. However, each different peels products have different types and it’s worth noting that they are not universally the same.

Essentially, all face peels remove a top layer of skin to exfoliate and speed up your cell turnover, but some remove more than others, depending on the type of face peel you decide to try. All face peels involve applying a chemical or natural solution to your face to expedite the exfoliation process. After doing some reading about it, I realised it’s worth trying this such product out.

And thankfully for us, Althea’s production house have been working tirelessly churning products to complete their range of products and one of their latest release happen to be the peel cream. Read more to find out what my thoughts are, as I’m sure you’re wondering how it turned out to be.

What is it?

As the name suggests, this product is what it is known as, which is a peel cream mask. This product helps to removes dead skin cells, clogged sebum and impurities from the air without irritating the skin. In addition to that, it also helps to moisturize and refresh your skin with casein, a type of protein which is packed with vitamins for a healthy complexion.

The key ingredients of this product are AHA, BHA and milk. As I read the product write-up, I found out that each of these ingredients have a specific purpose. Where AHA helps to remove dead skin cells on the surface of the skin, the BHA on the other hand, removes impurities and de-clogs the pores and the last key ingredient is milk which moisturizes and refreshes the skin.

With daily usage, this gentle peeling mask gives your skin smoothness and clarity with its self-bubbling formula and double exfoliating effect that smoothens out roughness. Pores are also minimize by removing impurities from them. Upon dispensing from the bottle, you’ll find a soft clay which ends up to become a whipped cream bubble texture.  What happened here is that the creamy clay texture bubbles into a rich lather to deep cleanse the pores and remove dead skin cells.

How to use?

It’s super easy to use this! The first step requires you to dampen the skin. With a wet canvas to start out with, it’ll be easier to apply an even layer onto the skin, massaging till a rich lather forms. Then, you’ll need to leave on for 30-60 seconds before rinsing away with warm water. That is pretty much it! All in all, it would take less than 2 mins and a maximum of 3 minutes tops. Super simple and easy to include one’s beauty regime.


Product itself is quite thick and creamy, I’d imagine it to be harder to apply without first damping your face. The water helps “melt” away the creamy texture and turn the application of the mask into a smoother one. It’s easier to spread evenly then. As you leave the mask on for approximately 30 seconds, that is when the magic *poof* happens. The layer of mask starts to foam up with uncountable amount of tiny bubbles forming all over. You can actually feel it, the sensation of that happening is actually rather interesting.

But the best part had to be when you’re removing it. Because the layer of air bubbles formed from the mask, it actually makes it rather rich and luxurious to wash the cream mask away. It’s also very easy to remove the mask.

Where to buy

From none other than the ALTHEA’s website, of course! You can get them here >> Milk Peel Cream Mask (Singapore) or Milk Peel Cream Mask (Malaysia). These are priced at S$ 12.50 in Singapore or RM 36.00 in Malaysia.

Beauty : The Perfect Sunscreen Ever, Althea Velvet Sunaway

For the longest time ever, I remembered searching for the perfect sunscreen. Granted that each person have their preference over what is defined as the best for them, this is especially so … given that everyone is born with different skin types and we each react differently to different products. I tried so many different products before I finally settled for one, because one of my biggest peeve in a sunscreen product is when it has a sticky, greasy finish. Gah, I hated those kind the most and years ago, it was difficult to find one which wasn’t that.

Another reason why I didn’t like most sunscreen products back then, was the white cast they had after application. The white cast is caused by mineral UV filters, which are the actual ingredients in sunscreen that work to actually protect the skin from the sun. In sunscreen, there can be either mineral (physical) or chemical UV filters or a bit of both. The white cast effect is evident in mineral filters such as zinc dioxide and titanium dioxide as they need to sit atop the skin like a shield. They work by reflecting UV rays from the skin as a mirror would. This is what causes the white cast – the minerals are reflecting light, making you like a sun-protected ghost. ;p

I did finally settle on a particular product because it had a light, watery texture that is easily absorbed and does not leave any sticky after feel. This product was essence based which was also sweatproof and waterproof. However, it wasn’t my ideal sunscreen. Reason being is because despite what it’s claimed to do it still left a slight sheen on my face and you’ll need to use powder to pat down the shininess. But seeing it’s the next best product I could find, I relented and settled for that until … that fateful day when I finally tried the Althea Petal Velvet Sunaway product.

What is it?

Althea Petal Velvet Sunaway is one of the Althea’s latest addition into the Petal Velvet series of product. Read more about my review of it here >> Trying Althea's First Beauty Product - Petal Velvet Powder.

Althea have since came a long way, releasing multiple products which I have had the opportunity to review. The products released thus far have ranged from a finishing powder; Petal Velvet Powder to a skincare range of cleanser, emulsion and moisturiser; Bare Essentials to masks; Real Fresh Skin Detoxer and now to compliment the beauty series with the release of a sunscreen. This may their best beauty product released ever, if not it definitely is my favourite one thus far.

Unlike other comparative products, this sunscreen is formulated with Damask rose extracts which helps to ensure that your skin stays fresh and hydrated throughout the day without any streakiness or a white cast.On top of this, it also has a SPF of 50+ and PA++++  that protects your skin from the harmful rays of the sun. And my favourite feature is that it’s part of Petal Velvet line where it contains micro-powder particles that give you a smooth, petal-like complexion.

How to Use

It’s relatively simple to apply this product but there’s a twist where you’ll need to shake the bottle well before application. This step of "shaking before use” bears some likeness to the typical sunblock products in the market. However, the similarities end right there.

The product is lightweight, which makes it extremely easy to blend and spread on your face. Once applied, it leaves a matte finish which is a huge advantage for me. This is as it makes it very buildable and I am able to use other products over it. Hence, you can use it as a primer base as well, since it provides your skin with a nice velvety landscape.

Otherwise, if you fancy a quick fuss-free au naturel look, you could use your other products and use the Petal Velvet Sunaway to give you the protection from the sun and finishing the look with the latest updated range of Petal Velvet Powder(s). The new range now comes in two additional variant on top of the first version #0 Translucent which is #23 Warm Beige and #Pink Lavender.

On my lazy days, I have simplified my make-up routine to just as the sunscreen, Petal Velvet Sunaway and the Petal Velvet Powder! I love how fine and easy it is for me to apply the powder. I’d use a kabuki brush for the application of the powder by simply dusting it over my face. Super simple, and it simplifies my routine by heaps. I’d even be able to skip my usual BB cream application too!


Having used the product for the past one month, I can happily assert that by my records, the Petal Velvet Sunaway is truly a star product in its class. Althea have managed to take the least interesting, sometimes overlooked product (especially with more foundation, BB/CC cream having embedded sun protection) to innovate it and produce a sunscreen which we didn’t know we could love. At least for me, I swear by this now.

I have combination skin, with oily T-zone and after applying the sunscreen, along with the velvet powder to finish it off, I can go hours long before my oily T-zone shines on. This itself is a huge plus for me, and would be the reason why I’d highly recommend this product. Let me know your thoughts if you do try it out. :)

Beauty: The Althea’s Christmas Wish List / Shopping Guide under S$50

With a blink of an eye, it’s December and here comes one of my favourite seasons of all time, Christmas! We are less than two weeks away from Christmas and I’ve seen the mad rush to get gifts for loved ones.

This wish list consists of my favourite top 10 picks from my all-time favourite Korean shopping site, As it happens, all the items in this wish list is below the budget of S$50, but realistically 7 products are actually below S$30 and the remaining three are of a higher range, closer to S$50. I have also arranged it from the cheapest to the most expensive ones. Have a swell time shopping and do share your hauls with me!

One of the product recommended would be this PO Effector, which is a powerful serum that minimizes enlarged pores for a smooth complexion. Using Houttuynia Cordata extract, this lightweight concentrate is fast-absorbing and applies on without leaving behind any sticky residue while regulating sebum control, balancing out the moisture and oil levels of the skin.

My sister personally uses this and highly recommended me to try it as well, which I have been meaning but haven’t got around to it.

The Missha’s version is of a nourishing formula that protects and moisturizes the skin while offering full coverage and a smooth finish. This is why it appeals to most ladies, especially those who use this as their daily make-up routine.

GUERISSON 9Complex Lifting Cream | S$14.00 <Shop here>

At close to 700 reviews on Althea with an average of 4.5 stars,  it’s obvious that this product is a star product. It’s specially formulated with German horse oil that deeply moisturises just about any part of your body, along with a whole set of other ingredients which soothes your skin’s irritations as well as has brightening properties which reduce scars and pigmentation, making you look glowy and radiant.
From the reviews, it appears that many happy customers have been mentioned on how effective it has been for them and with such a price point, it’s hard to give this product a miss. Your loved ones would thank you for it!

ALTHEA Petal Velvet Set | S$17.10 <Shop here>

This set contains one my favourite product that I’ve tried this year, which is the Petal Sunaway so it’s no surprise that I have included it my shopping guide. I’m in the midst of writing my in depth review on possibly the best sunscreen I have used up to date, do look out for that review but what I can say, is that I’d highly recommend getting that.

Besides the sunscreen, the set also allows you to select one Petal Velvet Powder of your choice. Althea have also released new variations of their powder in three different shades now, #0 (white shade) and #23 (brown shade) and #PinkLavender (pink shade) which leaves you spoilt of choices really.

COSRX AHA/BHA Clarifying Treatment Toner | S$18.00 <Shop here>

I’ve heard many raving reviews about this toner, which is why it’s on my list. This toner is formulated using a mix of AHA (from apple fruit water) and BHA (from willow bark water); a mild but effective toner that helps to exfoliates away dead skin cells and remove impurities. By doing this, it actually  work to prevent the formation of whiteheads and blackheads too. 

The best part has to be that it’s a spray toner type of dispenser which is actually way more convenient than having to pour it out. Talk about extreme convenience that I’d welcome any day in my regime.

ALTHEA Fresh Skin Detoxer Set | S$25.00 <Shop here>

This 10-second, 2-in-1 cleanser pack has been a staple in my beauty regime, so much so that it feels weird if I didn’t use it for a day. The set comes with both the Rose and Green Tea, which is perfect as the rose is designed to for day use and the green tea for the night one. The rose one smells amazing to start the day with using it, and mhmm, the green tea is so soothing, plus calming to end the day with.

DEAR, KLAIRS Supple Preparation Facial Toner | S$29.00 <Shop here>

Yet another highly raved product and this is the moisturizing toner gives the skin a boost of hydration! I never did realise the importance of using a toner until of course I was introduced to it and the myriad of benefits it has to your skin. It actually helps to transform your complexion into the perfect canvas for your favourite skin care products to work their magic.  This I found to be true in my usage of other toner and which explains why a toner is also a staple in my regime.

LANEIGE Mini Sleeping Mask Set with Basic Sample Kit | S$32.00 <Shop here>

I know Laneige is most famous for its Water Sleeping Mask which I have personally used and loved, so I can imagine how this gift would be perfect for fans of Laneige sleeping masks. This is as the set comes in a size of 25ml with three different variants of the sleeping mask range; Original, Lavender and Time Freeze. 

This then, allows you to try the different masks instead of committing to buying just that one product and being stuck using it just to finish it. That is why it’s also the prefect gift for your loved ones. In addition, this set comes with Basic Care Sample Kit in trial sizes too. More freebies and products to try!

WISHTREND Pure Vitamin C 21.5% Advanced Serum | S$41.00 <Shop here>

Although there is not many reviews on this product, I’ve been recommended to use this product in hopes of lightening my acne and pimple scars. The vitamin serum aims to improve overall skin tone and texture. It contains higher % of vitamin C in it, which makes it very concentrated but it will not cause irritation to the skin.

I’m certainly intrigued to try this product out and I believe it’ll make a good gift for anyone whom is looking to address the very same problem I’m facing. In fact, it also helps to improve the overall complexion too so every lady out there would definitely want that!

MISSHA The First Treatment Essence Intensive Moist | S$41.00 <Shop here>

I’ve always wanted to try this product and there is a solid reason why myself and the 230+ other customers whom left a review on Althea did too. This essence works to deeply hydrate from within, going deep into the layers to plump them up. The result is skin that is rejuvenated and hydrated, with improvements to skin tone and fine lines. This product have been compared to SK-II one which is probably about 8x the price but apparently, this works just the same!

There is no surprise then on which the ladies’ preference to purchase and use from. I’ve just ordered this and am pretty stoked to try it to share the results with you all!

till next time.

Eat : DurianBB’s First Ever Durian Buffet Party in Singapore

While we may not experience four season in the South East Asia region but, nevertheless we still have our favourite season and that is the DURIAN season! I’m sure many will agree with me that it’s really one of the best season to have especially when you’re a fan of the exotically aromatic fruit. Once the season arrives, Malaysians would be torn for choices with a plethora of durian shops to eat from. One of the most welcomed addition to the market is DurianBB Park, where durians  are available all year round with the fruits obtained directly from their farms in Raub, Pahang and Chanthaburi, Thailand. Their flagship outlet is located in the heart of Kuala Lumpur making it super accessible and convenient to drop.

DurianBB's Buffet Party in Singapore!

One of the signature events by DurianBB is their DURIAN BUFFET PARTY, which are held in collaboration with Malaysia Federal Agricultural Marketing Authority (FAMA) where DurianBB played host to the largest durian tasting parties in the world. Fresh durians were flown directly from Malaysia then feasted upon right away at the parties and I have had the absolute pleasure to attend their first ever event in Singapore.

The durian party was in the style of an eat-all-you-can for a period of 2 hours where we were firstly served with a tray of 5 signature variant of durian. They were the D197 (Musang King), D24 (XO), D13 (Golden Bun), D101 (Red Flesh), and D158 (Cheong Peng). The durians were placed in an order with a sequence to eat them in as each of the durian have their distinct taste and some was stronger than others (hence, should be eaten last). After that, there was free-flow durians of D197 (Musang King), D24 (XO), and D13 (Golden Bun).

I don’t know about others but for me, this was so a dream come true for me because I’ve always wanted to feast on durians like buffet style  but have never been able to do so in Kuala Lumpur because of the mixed reviews I have heard from the buffets held back home. But the selections available at DurianBB was indeed impressive that we could choose from the crowd’s favourite of Musang King, as well as D24!

The free flow of the durians came in plates, which were gloriously placed on our tables and refills was obtained whenever we finish them. It was such an interesting experience indeed! This was because my friends and I were estimating how many durians could we each eat in total. We were given a small container each to discard the seeds and by the end of the event, we counted that each of us approximately ate 20 pieces!

If you’ve missed your chance to attend this event, fret-not as DurianBB has signature products which are made from genuine Musang King flesh. During the event, I managed to sample their Musang King Bar which is a delicious ice cream bar… so rich in taste. It makes me crave for it as I’m typing this now. Here is a pictorial detailing all the products that are manufactured by DurianBB! For Singaporeans, you can find these products in various Cold Storage and Market Place outlets.
