influr Event with Laneige Sg BB Cushion @ Marriott Hotel

Such a beautiful night view at Marriott Hotel Pool Terrace Pavilion... (No filters added!)

Thanks to Alvin, influr, Marriott Hotel and Laneige, I was invited to the influr preview last week. Got to know more about how to empower my social influence with influr and also get my hands on Laneige's latest product - Laneige BB Cushion! 

I'll just tell you more about it in just a bit! (:

For now, lets enjoy the beautiful photos of the poolside view. Would love to enjoy a relaxing night swim at this cosy place some day.. 

Just beside the pool is Marriott Hotel's trendy al fresco restaurant which is consistently listed as one of the top restaurants in Singapore! The romantic and beautiful poolside view adds a great ambience to your dining experience ^^

Some of their signature a la carte dishes include the Chilli Crab omelette, Banana pancakes with coconut cream and gula melaka. (Sounds so delicious.. especially Banana pancakes!!!!)

The speaker telling us more about influr and how it works. 

For anyone who owns a blog or aspires to be an influential blogger, you might be interested in this! 

Most bloggers write out of passion and creativity, but most of the time, or at least personally for me, I get constantly motivated when my writing gets acknowledged by readers. Be it gaining increased views or getting comments, these act as strong motivation and encouragement for me to share more on my blog. 

(After all, if I didn't want to share and get acknowledged, this blog might as well be kept private..)

Getting sponsors, or invited to events are some perks that bloggers enjoy throughout their blogging journey. influr is a platform that also provides more than just acknowledgement or applauds from our readers/ fans. Basically, WE GET ACTUAL REWARDS. 

"Not everyone has influence. You should be rewarded for yours."

Your individual influence will be measured by influr which will then allow you to gain access to Treats (influr's signature rewards program) from your favourite brands! 

There are 4 different stages of being an influencer:

☑ Elite Influencers

☑ Respected Influencers

☑ Popular Influencers

☑ Basic Influencers


If you are truly influential, you get opportunities to become a Brand Advocate through selected assignments as well! 

Every individual gets an opportunity to prove your influence and get rewards from it. Not only me, but you as well! 

GO TRY IT OUT :D Who knows you might discover your potential of being a great influencer! 

Anyway.. Back to the Laneige product that was given as a goodie for all bloggers that day (:
SO EXCITED to know that we will be given their NEW BB CUSHION SPF50+ PA+++!! Just nice my BB cream is running out, so great! I can use this now!

1 piece sold every 10 seconds!! 

Laneige means "snow" in French! Even the meaning of the name already attracted my attention as I love snow. So pure and white. 

About their brand:
Laneige encapsulates the powerful hydration benefits of the brand, with intensive research by Laneige scientists to distill patented Water Science technology that is incorporated into all Laneige products. Laneige scientifically studies ‘water’, the source of life and the most important element of healthy skin, for optimal hydration and moisturization. Laneige is one of the fastest growing premium cosmetic brands which completes the beauty of women by pursuing the artistic sensibility of Water Science to help women achieve the radiant, dewy skin they have always longed for.
Laneige Homme is the range of sophisticated cosmetics for urban men with fast-acting moisture energy that benefits damaged skin care and skin protection.

The Laneige BB cushion also contains 6-in-1 benefits!

1) Brightening effect

2) UV protection SPF50+

3) Moisturizing effect

4) Natural and clean coverage

5) Soothing effect

6) Water-resistant

The BB cushion is kept within a double-layered container with 4°C mineral water. This actually allows the temperature of our skin to reduce by that amount and to keep the cushion cool and fresh. When I apply it to my face, I actually enjoy the cooling sensation. Especially when SG weather is so hot, it feels quite shiok to dab the cushion on your face to have the cooling effect! 

Picture zoomed in to show you the clear fine pores. This revolutionary cushion is actually made with 800,000 pores!!! With THAT amount of pores, the BB cream will spill out really finely so that it will have a lesser chance of clotting on your face or having the cakey feeling which I really dislike. Sometimes I refrain from putting foundation or BB cream because of the clotting issue. 

The air-cell puff is made to absorb moisture and transfer it to our skin surface to maximise the cooling and soothing effect. The thinly tailored cushion puff also allow us to apply the BB cream to our face smoothly. I personally find that the application is quite easy and effortless! Blending was quite smooth without tugging on my skin. 

My thoughts:

The BB cushion is generally really easy to apply and blend with the puff. I specially enjoyed the cooling sensation that came along with it. The coverage also did a pretty decent job on some of my flaws and redness, and it gives a dewy and natural finish too. When I told my mom that I have applied foundation, she couldn't really tell as the texture wasn't too "cakey" like some usual BB cream. It felt quite light on my skin too. 

I liked that the BB cushion came with UV protection as I'm actually quite lazy to apply so many stuff on my face at once. (HAHA oops) The best thing of this product is that it's water-resistant! I tried applying it for the entire day and to my pleasant surprise, my T-zone was not oily!! Usually, most BB cream or foundation cause my skin to secrete more oil and it's so irritating! Thankfully, I found one that solves that problem. 

The BB cushion provides that extra radiant glow on my face and I love how it's so natural yet able to cover most of my blemishes. I'm really glad to own one myself!  

Once again, thank you Alvin, influr, Marriott Hotel and Laneige for having me at this event!
