[Media Invite] Breathe Better. Live Better. with AirFree Air Purifiers

Airfree Air Purifiers from Portugal made its offical launch in Singapore at The Scotts Tower (TST) weeks ago, in October, bringing this intelligent technology to citizens living in Singapore. 

Airfree air purifiers releases no ozone or ions and can effectively destroy up to 99% of airborne allergens, ozone, bacteria, viruses, mildew, mould, dust mite, pollen and tobacco odours, reducing the amount of microorganisms and harmful substances in the air. As such, increasing the quality of life of more sensitive people such as elderly, mothers-to-be, children and people who suffer from allergies at home. 
Airfree air purifiers dramatically reduce air pollution by burning the microorganisms. As a result, the contaminated air is drawn into the Airfree® ceramic core and destroyed at high temperatures. This air purification cycle is silent, requires no maintenance and is guaranteed by numerous tests. 

The power of filterless Airfree TSS™ ceramic core technology helps eliminates microorganisms at temperatures of close to 200°C when contaminated air enters in by air convection. The purified air is then cooled down before being returned to the environment.

I still remember how i had terrible sleepless nights when i was at a very young age, having much difficulty in breathing normally, all due to child asthma. A study of respiratory syncytial virus (the main cause of wheezing in children less than 2 years old) showed that when the virus is exposed to 65°C for 45 minutes, its infection capacity is decreased, and the conformational proteins are transformed, reducing the activity of substances responsible for inflammation, hypersensitivity and airway damage. The SARS virus (causative agent of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome) has thermosensitive (heat-sensitive) proteins in its envelope, which can be fully denatured at 55°C, the same temperature at which the SARS virus was proven to be inactivated. Similarly, the proteins that are essential for the transmission of infectious influenza viruses are sensitive to variations in pH and temperatures between 55°C and 70°C. Therefore, AirFree Air Purifiers can effectively prevent these viruses from affecting your child or family members' health, for a better life!

All in all, AirFree Air Purifier;
- has efficiency being tested and approved in real environments at the best institutes around the world
- is internationally patented and environmentally friendly (the only one that also reduces ozone concentrations)
- is silent and requires no maintenance and no filters
- is economical as no part replacement expenses or significant energy costs
- has low energy consumption as it consumes only 48w per hour
- comes with night light and can be part of home decor
- has a 2-years warranty
- releases neither ozone nor ions
- protects everything and everyone - destroying any micro-organism passing through the ceramic sterilizer, regardless of its size or hazard level.
- has a completely natural process which uses no radiation, chemical or toxic products, and do not interfere with temperature or humidity of the environment.

Airfree air purifiers are now available in Singapore, at Popular, Harvey Norman, Hachi Tech online, Audio House, Hwee Seng Online, Qoo10. Time for an early Christmas gift, maybe?! =)

[Beauty Review] Eyelash extension at The Best Beauty Centre

I got to know about The Best Beauty Centre through Alethea's recommendation and was asked if i am interested to do a review on one of its services. i gladly agreed and went on to try eyelash extension.

There are a few branches in Singapore islandwide. I visited the one located at Toa Payoh Bus Interchange, just above the MRT station.

Firstly, here's my look without any fake lashes on or any eyelash extension.. My real ones are so thin and short, almost empty.

As soon as i reach the beauty salon, i receive warm welcome from the beautician named Alicia, who is also the one doing eyelash extension for me. I was then ushered into a private cozy room with clean white bed sheet.

The whole procedure was a comfortable one. I did not experience a single discomfort at all. The lashes are lightweight and soft. It doesn't take long for her to complete the whole service for me (probably because the size of my eyes are small?).. but i remember the last time i did an eyelash extension somewhere else, it was a rather draggy one and really uncomfortable.

I spent about 40 mins all in all at The Best Beauty Centre.

Happy with her service and her skill. A photo with Alicia before i take my leave.

Night out with Jessie with eyes looking less tired than usual, thanks to the added lashes! =) 

I love how i dont have to apply eyeliner and mascara and still look alright!

What surprise me even more is the holding power of the glue the salon uses. I actually went ahead with my swimming plan the day after even though i understand is not recommended to do so. Thankfully, all lashes still beautifully intact after my 1-hour swimming session (and i didn't have goggle on as i don't have one)! =)

Thank you my beautiful friend, Alethea, and The Best Beauty Centre for this comfy lashes on me!! =)

Current promotion : Enjoy any one of the treatment only at S$20 for new customer!
