This is a heating cream to tone and slim down the targeted body areas.
Formulated with red algae extract, which penetrates into deep skin layers when massaged on skin, this product effectively shrinks cellulite, tightens, soothes and conditions skin, increasing skin elasticity while preventing the appearance of fine lines and skin sagging.
There are a few key ingredients inside this cream. One added key ingredient is caffeine! it is added with 157% more caffeine for effective skin tightening!
Judy did a measurement on the circumference of 1 volunteered lady’s arm before applying the slimming product.
Apply appropriate amount on the target areas, like arms, thighs and abdomen.
Rub and massage the cream on the arms,
Judy also used a massage roller on her skin. This is to ensure better penetration and better results on the slimming.
Judy then used those transparent food wrapper to wrap around the lady’s arm.
After about 15 minutes wrap, the transparent wrap was removed. Judy re-measured the arm again and indeed, a few centimeters were gone!!

Depending on individual, some may feel a slight heat sensation during use. This is normal and it is okay to continue using it.
Next, Judy brought us to topic on volumizing haircare from SHILLS. These products can really help to enhance curls, makes the hair looking voluminous!
SHILLS Magical Hair Volumizer with Camellia Extracts, 130 ml
For ladies with wavy or permed hair, this Magical Hair Volumizer helps to achieve natural volume and wavy hair. It gives strong hold, long-lasting curls. Has a non-sticky for hair finishing and hair feels light after spray.
Camellia extracts smooth and protect hair, restoring hair strength and vitality. Rich vitamins, nutrients and herbal ingredients regulate excess scalp oil, with excellent antibacterial properties, providing you with the best hair protection possible.
Here’s the little demonstration by Judy and another volunteer lady with permed hair.
Judy sprayed directly onto her dry hair. Can also be applied on wet hair. When spraying onto hair roots, Judy mentioned spraying should be from a distance of 10–15cm.
To bring back livelier curls, Judy used fingers to “pinch” hair towards the desired direction.
To enhance the curls, Judy recommended using a hair blower.
Here’s the Before-n-After conditions of the hair.
Left half of her hair shows her hair condition without using the Magical Hair Volumizer. Right half shows the hair condition after using the Magical Hair Volumizer. Notice her curls did look abit more enhanced than before.
That’s not all, Judy said when she arrived in SG, she noticed most local girls had more or less the same hairstyle. This is something which I totally agree! I am one of the women with boring hairstyle! :c
Luckily Judy shared with us a few tips on how to create hairstyle for day and night. The way she styled looked so easy and messy-free!
SHILLS FLUFFY FIX Maximizing Hair Volume Spray, 150ml
This hairstyling product is a hair spray which increases the effectiveness of other hairstyling products. Like the Magical Hair Volumizer, it leaves the hair non-sticky and gives a long-lasting hold on the styles created.
Unlike the Magical Hair Volumizer, when spraying, gota avoid direct spraying onto the scalp.
The using fingers, “pinch” the hair to the desired hairstyle.
SHILLS Dust It, 30ml
Dust It is said to be able to create up to 3 times your hair volume! It comes in a tub in powdery form. Promises to give the hair a natural voluminous wavy look. Non-sticky and feels light on hair.
At the event, we had a male volunteer whose hair was demonstrated by Judy using SHILLS Fix Maximizing Hair Volume Spray and Dust It. Before using the products, his hair was pretty flat, especially on his fringe.
Judy poured a small quantity onto her palm and spread it out well before applying onto hair ends or other parts where she wanted to create the volume.
Hair volume was created by lifting the top of the hair, and from the middle to the ends of the hair strands.
It’s just that fast and easy! Psst psst.. I have got Dust It inside my goodie bag, Must try it!
Finally before Judy ended her first segment in this crash course, she shared with us some skincare products which target on pigmentation and dull skin.
They are the SHILLS WHITE 540 Anti Pigmentation Series which consists of:
:: SHILLS WHITE Anti-Dark Spot Whitening Serum
:: SHILLS WHITE EX Whitening & Brightening Cream
:: SHILLS WHITE EX SPF 42 PA++ Sunblock Whitening Hydra-Foundation 21
Quoted from Beauty Bistro website, the key ingredients in this range are,
1. Tranexamic Acid
Vital whitening ingredient Tranexamic Acid inhibits the formation of melanin, preventing hyperpigmentation and dark spot formation for complete and effective whitening. Tranexamic acid is stable and not easily undermined by the environment, with no known irritation to skin, and moisturizes skin perfectly without any special medium required. Suitable for sensitive skin and recommended specially for lightening spots.
Effectively reduces melanin. Extracted from the bearberry fruit, arbutin helps brighten the complexion by effectively penetrating into deep skin layers, and combining with tyrosine to disable tyrosinase activity and thus prevent melanin formation. Arbutin also accelerates the breakdown and removal of melanin.
3. Grapeseed extract
Easily absorbed by skin, grapeseed extract prevents and diminishes fine facial lines and improves skin metabolism, whitening and hydrating skin for increased skin elasticity. With this natural plant extract’s excellent anti-aging benefits, it also replenishes skin moisture levels.
4. Chamomile extract
Inhibits the activity of active oxygen in neutrophils. Possesses anti-aging and anti-inflammatory properties and prevents melanogenesis. Activates and regenerates skin cells.
5. Licorice extract
Used for its anti-anaphylactic, whitening, pain relieving, detoxifying and antibacterial properties due to its licorice flavonoids and flavonoid compounds.
SHILLS WHITE Anti-Dark Spot Whitening Serum, 20ml
Being an anti-dark spot serum, it is said to prevent the formation of melanin. And with the mentioned key ingredients, it provides the skin with enough moisture comfort, revealing fairer, brighter-looking skin and a brightened up skintone.
Judy appled a moderate amount of the serum to the model’s face and neck. Gently massage into the skin for better absorption.
Recommended to use in the morning and night.
SHILLS WHITE EX Whitening and Brightening Cream, 50ml
This is not just a hydrating cream which helps to combat pigmentation.
It has 3 main functions on how it works,
1. Stops melanin production which is usually caused by environmental stress from the sun and pollution.
2. It is then absorbed to the deep layers under the skin to block the pathways of melanin from the dermal layer to the skin surface.
3 .Finally it helps to promote skin metabolism, to achieve a fairer, crystal clear skin.
Judy demonstrated to us on performing “Gua Sha” when using Shills Whitening and Brightening Cream.
SHILLS WHITE EX SPF 42 PA++ Sunblock Whitening Hydra-Foundation 21, 14g
This is a cream foundation with UV protection, skin repair and hydrating properties. Comes with SPF42 PA++, promises to protect the skin from further sun damage which is one of the main cause for pigmention.
It is able to conceal fine lines easily and illuminate dull skin from within.
It was a shame that I couldn’t make it for the 2nd segment, still feeling sore after so many days since the crash course ended. :’( This crash course was very informative and the results achieved from the tips demonstrated by Judy were amazing.
