“Customers find that the teas with the cookies and cakes, are just perfect for teatime … each sip leaves them refreshed, satisfied and yearning for more … they also love the aroma of the tea leaves.

Enjoy pampering your skin after a long, stressful day.
“There’s nothing like unwinding with a cool face mask that comes with negative ions to take the worries away,’’ says Shirley Swu of Mageline World.
Among the soothing products are the:
- Biomass Graphene Luminous & Revitalizing Eye Mask to ease the strain on our eyes;
- Biomass Graphene Soothing and Rejuvenating Mask to replenish our dull skin. (Sometimes, stress shows up on our skin as dullness).

“I always have it with me and I love to share my personal thoughts in it. The soothing colour mix together with traditional motifs, is really refreshing and brings out the emotions of the good ole days.’’
Another client shared: “My wife always has it as her travel companion … a journal where she jots down notes and sketches, and where she pastes all the nitty witty memorabilia during the journey.
“My kids also love them as they are a perfect gift for anyone special.’’
Star Rose Handcraft
Enjoy the calming scents of essential oils in the container candles made from American soywax.
“We use geranium essential oil which has a sweet aroma and a calming effect; it also helps to reduce feelings of stress, anxiety, sadness and fatigue.
“Meanwhile, lavender creates a relaxing atmosphere that leads to a restful night’s sleep,’’ says Siau Chew Yen of Star Rose Handcraft.
“The container candle is designed as a tilt candle; when customers look at the design, they will already feel relaxed, with a positive outlook that life is colourful,’’ adds Chew Yen.
Experience the richer and softer texture of handcrafted soap by Nesti Dante Soaps of Italy.
Prepared in the classical cauldron method called saponification, the soap has a long lasting scent due to premium quality control.
You can relax and be assured that Nesti Dante natural soaps, made with love and care in Florence, Italy, are free from mineral oils, parabens or aggressive ingredients.
Nesti Dante produces its own soap noodles starting from premium ‘entire’ oils – the same used to produce pasta, cookies and chocolates.
It boils these raw materials in big cauldrons for four days to obtain a perfect soap base that is free from impurities.
Then, the mixture rests for 24 hours to allow the excess glycerin to be eliminated, thus retaining the beautiful scent and firmness of the soap.
“I’m really in love with the smell, especially the fig & almond milk,’’ a customer shares with Cavin Ng of Frenshi Marketing.
“This is my repeat order. I’m impressed with Nesti Dante bath soap products; after a month of using the products, my skin has become smooth and less dry … it keeps me looking younger,’’ shares another customer.
Trying the Philosophia range of soaps for the first time, another customer says the fragrance is just as nice as the Luxury range, and her Mom loves it so much!
