It’s amazing what (sun)light can do for you. We’re talking the magical Vitamin D, said to boost happiness levels, build stronger bones and lower blood pressure. Sunlight can also heal the skin… and generously leave it with little brown gifts called pigmentation. Then there’s the other kind of light called IPL (Intense Pulsed Light), which can also generously lighten the damage dealt. That’s our ZapZapTM for you.

ZapZapTM — An IPL Fairy Tale for the Skin?

The latest introduction to the family of existing treatments, the ZapZapTM series is a suite of IPL treatments targeted at pigmentations, wrinkled/lined skin, acne and acne marks.

IPL isn’t really new to us, but we’d recently given our equipment an overhaul and exchanged our existing Korean technology for the latest, most premium of non-medical grade Spanish Variable Pulse IPL machines that aestheticians are legally licensed to operate. Also, while most other IPL treatments only use blue or green light, our ZapZapTM equipment pairs blue with red light for accelerated recovery.

In other words:

– Better, faster results with even less to no downtime
– It’s good for more than just pigmentations — it’s also great for softening fine lines, heal acne and its marks, balancing excess sebum and brightening the skin
– Suitable for all skin types
– Doesn’t cause dryness to the skin — we promise

We don’t believe in shortcuts, but this is as close as it gets.

ZitZapTM — Healer of Scars, Acne and Broken Hearts Skin

Meet ZitZap™ — the new best friend that makes our signature QuintessentialTM extraction facial so much better. Designed to — well — zap zits, marks and bacteria away, remarkably enhancing skin’s healing after it’s been uncongested (did I just make that up?) to death.

ZapBrightTM — Healer of Pigmentations, Age Spots and Dull Complexions

ZapBright™ zaps melanin, effectively lightening blemishes on the skin. Waste particles are then flushed out of the body and never see daylight again.

ZapGlowTM — Healer of Wrinkles, Lines and Sags

Imagine this: Results so stark yet subtle, a phone camera can’t capture it… but your friends will definitely notice the lines that did a mysterious disappearing act! Designed to reduce fine lines, firm and brighten the skin, ZapGlow™ is an IPL treatment that’s perfect for anti-ageing concerns.

With Good Things Come Bad Things Like Nagging

We love the fast results ZapZapTM brings us and our clients, but as with all things, prevention is better than cure. While some skin problems are truly hereditary (and there’s nothing we can do about genes), we can mitigate/prevent them with these quick skincare tips:

– Use sunscreen so pigmentations don’t appear/appear less
– Stay out of the sun as much as possible, especially if you’re pregnant and prone to pigmentations
– Acne is fixable but just made harder if you keep picking at it

When we began our #BareWithMe and #DearPauline journey with WearOhWhere, we were sure we might encounter roadblocks along the way. After all, vulnerability and baring it all aren’t concepts many would be comfortable with – and on social media at that. Through having honest conversations with women who are influential in their own ways, we hoped to inspire the average, everyday lady to similarly gain the courage and open up to share their own stories. To reveal the most real you and to find beauty in that — and in others’ truest selves. And today? We’re 3 stories in: Botanical artist Lucinda Law, MTV VJ Hanli Hoefer, and now, co-founder of Love, Bonito, Viola Tan — who really hits the nail on the head. She sums up a large part of our purpose in rolling this project out:

“When we are willing to show that we are human and stop trying to appear “perfect”, when we open up about our struggles, we might just be helping someone else find strength in their vulnerability.”

Opening up with us, Viola shares insight after powerful insight. A personal favourite?

“If you tie your happiness to another person’s appraisal of you, you’ll never be happy.”

She also divulges her idea of a safe space, what introversion means to her, and an assortment of quotes that lent her strength in times when all seemed lost. She even shares her quick tip for jetlag and a hangover – something we can’t say we condone, but we’ve all had those!

When we started this campaign, we weren’t too sure how it would pan out. But we’ve experienced nothing less than extremely genuine, personal stories and candid moments of laughter. Behind the powerful, public personas that most see, our 3 women really are more human than we might have thought. It was a humbling experience to read their stories where they bared what they could in the short time we had with them. And we invite you to do the same.

If you’d like to be a part of our #BareWithMe campaign, simply hop on our bandwagon and share one thing which you feel grateful for today, and why, here. To thank you for sharing, we have a little something special for you — one 60-minute OxyReviveTM facial treatment with us (worth S$212.93) + our absolute favourite Soothe — Deep Hydrating Lotion (120ml, worth S$69) — to give away at the end of the month.

Oh, and Viola’s word for 2018?

Courage.

It’s been a flurry of quick tips and skin hacks to take you through the festive season… But now that’s over, we’re taking a breather from all of that today! 2018 is so exciting for us in so many ways, and we’d love to share this with you. To kickstart the year, we’re taking #FoundationFreeConfidence and transparency to a whole new level with our #BareWithMe campaign.

In collaboration with @WearOhWhere, #BareWithMe seeks honest, open conversations with women from all walks of life to uncover their stories. In celebration of the beauty of realness, these ladies will share their thoughts, feelings and everything in between about themselves, their journeys, their Nows, and then beyond. We hope they inspire you as much as they do us: to be brave and confident in your own skin – from the inside out.

And the first to front this new series? A beautiful, talented woman – Lucinda Law, botanical artist and founder of Within.sg.

#BareWithMe: Lucinda Law shares her story and jumps into the tub with us

Our photoshoot was done way back in November at the very lush Lloyd’s Inn (that’s two months of excitement we had to hold in)! We hopped in and out of the tub for that perfect shot, talked about pirates and spontaneous getaways… We won’t say much more because Lucinda’s full story is right up here, and hers is truly an inspiring read.
