And their previous product – GLOW Raspberry Ketones :

GLOW Raspberry Ketones naturally stimulate your body’s metabolic rate, raises energy levels and supports the body’s natural fat burning processes,at the same time curbing your desire to snack and consume excessive calories. Unlike other products in the market, GLOW Raspberry Ketones have been approved safe by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) since 1965.

  1. It combines Lipolysis and Thermogenesis.These are our body’s body’s natural fat burning processes. Lipolysis is the body’s natural process of breaking down fat stored in the body into simple substances, and converting it into energy. Thermogenesis is the body’s process of burning fat by producing heat to oxidize fat.
  2. It helps in the production of Norepinerphrine and Adiponectin.Increasing Norepinerphrine triggers the body temperature to rise, causing us to burn more fat.Adiponectin is a regularity hormone that tells the “body that you are skinny” and it begins to break down the fat cells within the body. Adiponectin doesn’t affect how your body metabolizes food. Instead, what it does is make it easier for your body to break down fat. Increasing levels of adiponectin helps your body lower glucose levels, catabolises fatty acids and promotes metabolism.
  3. It regulates Leptin sensitivity to curb appetite.Fat cells (adipocytes) secrete a hormone called Leptin that tells our brain we have eaten enough. This hormone is more abundant in overweight individuals. Hence their bodies have grown resistant to Leptin, causing them not register when to stop overeating.

A simple comparison between the 2 products :

2012 GLOW™ Original :

  • Increases your metabolism
  • Burns fat faster
  • Curbs Appetite

2013 Improved Formula! GLOW™ Ignite 2.0 :

  • Accelerates maximum fat loss
  • Increases your metabolism
  • Decreases glucose absorption
  • Burns fat faster
  • Curbs Appetite
  • Oxidizes visceral (belly) fat cells
  • Reduces waistline circumference
  • Increases lean mass to fat mass ratio for toned body appearance
  • Reduces body fat by forcing the release of fat from adipose tissues and using fat as a source of energy

At the event, we were presented with a talk on the importance of keeping fit, stay healthy and most importantly to most women, maintaining our figures/losing weight.

GLOW’s consumer, Daphne was also invited to talk about how GLOW products have helped her attain her desirable weight. She has lost a whooping 11kg since! 🙂

We were also invited to join their exercise classes which consist of kickboxing (I LIKE!), Zumba (HOT sport now!) and other classes but due to my hectic schedule, I wasn’t able to commit myself to them. Hence, couldn’t register for any.

It was a short but sweet presentation and event, and I guess everyone was very happy for Daphne as well as inspired by her motivation and weight-loss results! 🙂

Nevertheless, thank you for the invitation, Vanity Trove 🙂

Are you contented with your looks?

Now, before I’d start, I would first like to clarify all doubts and place any tension at ease, that I am NOT against plastic surgery. I mean everyone has the fundamental right to decide how they should look, unless you are piously telling me that we should be thankful for whatever looks we are born with and that we should respect our parents for that. I’m not gonna even go there, but one has got to admit it that everyone WANTS to look beautiful. Although, well, beauty is a subjective issue and beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder…But surely, beauty does boost one’s self-esteem isn’t it?It’s quite simple to comprehend this theory. Just imagine you are wearing your own favourite piece of dress, or that you managed to tangle yourself out of those bad hair days, or you had sufficient undisturbed sleep throughout the whole night hence waking up happy and refreshed.

Don’t all these make you well, feel.. HAPPY AND CONFIDENT? Even if it lasts only for a day…?

Now, before you make an ASS of U and ME (A-S-S-U-M-E) , I would also like to disclaim that I have not undergone any plastic surgery before, be it minor ones such as double eyelid surgery (although I wish I had the $ and courage to!).

So, let’s start.

Cosmetics are not permanent, unless you head for cosmetics surgeries, which then would be branded with all sorts of negative connotations like “Fake”, “Plastic”, “Unnatural” etc…

Plus, there are detrimental effects of plastic surgeries for post-surgeries as well as in the future. You heard of bleeding, wounding, losing one of your senses and even DEATH (!!!). You heard that it might backfire, reverting to its original form and worse still, reverting to a look worse than the original form. You have known of people having saggy skin, wrinkles, fine lines, droopy eyelids, nose fillers making the nose look weird (some sort like MJ – No offence though), botox leaving bulldog face and skin… Not to mention those ladies (or men!) who are obsessed with plastic surgeries…

Take a look at these pictures!

Plastic surgeries GONE WAAAAYYYY TOO WRONG!!!

For me, if plastic surgeries are deemed to be beneficial in your life in one way or another, then well, good for you. But if your surgeries gone wrong and you are overly obsessed with them, it’s a BIG NONO for me. If your plastic surgery (perhaps your first attempt – hence not labelling you as obsessed) gone wrong, I guess you are just pure unlucky. Either that, you have not done enough research and homework before embarking on this life-changing event.It is the intention of those who have undergone surgeries to beautify themselves. They may be less appealing than before (that’s why they want to beautify themselves right?) but depending on how you judge, as mentioned, I do think that some should have never gone for plastic surgery. Spent a bomb (maybe sponsored?) and yet turned out disastrous. Imagine the double blow, or blows amplified when others slam you?Plus, it’s really difficult to be a human being sometime. While you can please some people, you will never be able to please everyone.

Denying getting a plastic surgery done, you get named as fake, liar what not and with the sudden surge of photos flooding of Before and After pictures, just like the above.
Putting on a brave front, admitting that you have tweaked your looks here and there, you still get criticised as fake….

SIGH. Ohwells.

My discontent
The areas which I ain’t contented most would be my single eyelids. I think getting a double eyelid surgery done is not a big hoohaa. What’s the big deal anyway? Would people judge you differently if you smack on those double eyelid sticker tapes? Or falsies? Eyelash extensions (a chill ran down my spine when I recall the recent terrible experience I had)?

The second dissatisfactory area which tops my chart would be my under bite. (Read here if you have no idea) I developed this under bite problem ever since I was young and I remember not treating it earlier when my cousin, who is now one of the top-notch dentist in Singapore, advised me that I actually have to undergo a jaw surgery. I would think it is now called chin augmentation? So yes a decade plus passed and here I am lamenting on my stupid under bite. 😦

Whether one has to undergo a jaw surgery would depend on how serious the under bite is. Invisaligns and braces might be able to solve the problem if it’s a minor under bite. The severity is best judged by a professional dentist. Since my cousin’s advice was rendered to me a million years ago, I guess undergoing a jaw surgery is now a must. 😦

Under bite is when your jaw is protruding out…

No photoshop (because I don’t know how to use?!), no extra effects whatsoever. Just a simple raw picture taken after work.I think I still look acceptable la, except for the dark circles…And I look the same as my 100% bare face.Don’t believe? Look at the picture below.

Picture

Pardon me for the different picture resolution. The former was taken with my digital cam while the latter was a self-shot taken with the iPhone front camera (poor reso).Not much of a difference in looks right? Maybe an oilier t-zone? LOL.Remember, specs always comes in handy for a disguise 😀 And I think I can still easily pull of as a JC student… Okay fine, to be fair, an undergrad at least! 😛 The cleaner auntie told me that initially she’d though I was only 18 to 19 years old… I knew she was only pulling my leg… Because I almost fell off my seat… Laughing hard… Geddit? Pulling my leg causing me to fall off my seat? 😛

I used to be afraid of heading out without any make up on and I still do. I guess that’s the detrimental effects after you start using make up. But I’m slowly letting the fears go and keeping to minimal makeup during days which I’m not heading out. They say natural beauty is the real beauty, which I must agree of course.

So, what’s your take? Are you for or against plastic surgeries? Are you contented with your looks? Are you afraid of letting others view you without any make up on?

Share your thoughts here! 😀
