LG Pra.L is a skincare and beauty investment

Like having your own, portable beauty clinic!

Published

No matter how I religiously commit to upkeep my appearance, I always find it difficult to maintain a rigorous skincare routine.

Sometimes, I feel lazy. Sometimes, there’s just a lot of distractions — both in life and in work. Admittedly, my routine is time-consuming that I wish there’s an easier way to apply my skincare essentials.

Thankfully, LG Electronics has LG Pra.L, a beauty brand consisting of products that work like your personal and portable beauty clinic. Their beauty devices let you cleanse, nourish, firm, and brighten your skin — all at the comfort of your home.

Though these may come at an expensive price tag, these beauty devices are worth investing in.

Derma LED Mask

LG Pra.L’s Derma LED Mask lets you achieve radiance for just nine minutes a day. It uses 160 LED lights that encourage cell regeneration to improve your skin elasticity, by penetrating deep into the subdermal layer of your skin.

It also comes with an eye-shield design to protect your eyes from the LED light glare. Don’t worry, it wraps comfortably since it’s made from silicone. It has a transparent visor, too, so you can do something else while you use the mask.

Dual Cleanser

Let me break some news to you: Your skin can still accumulate dirt and excess oils, even if you’re just at home. This is why we all need a good cleanse!

LG Pra.L’s Dual Cleanser provides gentle and deep pore cleansing, thanks to its silicone and fine fiber brush. It washes off dirt and dust you can’t see with your naked eye off your skin. You can choose between light and daily cleanse for 70 seconds (Level 1) or a thorough cleaning for 120 seconds (Level 2).

The Dual Cleanser has a built-in UV light for sanitation, so your brush’s head will be sterilized even when you’re not using it.

Galvanic Ion Booster

Honestly, I’m too lazy to pay a visit to dermatologists. Imagine the time you need to prepare just for stepping out! Thankfully, LG Pra.L has the Galvanic Ion Booster, which helps your skincare products penetrate deeper into your skin — just like any other Ion Boosters.

But it’s a cut above most products since it’s easier to use and it’s packed with technology to make it easier to cleanse your skin and improve absorption of your skincare products. It has Cleansing Mode for deep pore cleansing, and Boost Mode which open pores to deliver your active ingredients from your favorite skincare products.

Carol (our Lifestyle Editor), Chay (our Creative Director), and I, the fabulous MJ, enjoy The Ordinary‘s serums, which are useful for brightening your skin and fading out marks caused by intense breakouts. When paired with the Galvanic Ion Booster, you will be unstoppable in emerging beautiful after your skincare routine.

Total Lift-Up Care

If you’re worried about aging — like losing your skin’s elasticity caused by the slowdown of collagen production — then LG Pra.L’s Total Lift-Up Care is a perfect investment. This device helps you get plump and youthful skin through its three separate functions. First, it has ‘Total Care Mode’ focused on providing an all-in-one treatment with varying intensity, accessible in three levels of strengths.

Then, ‘Tightening Mode’ offers thermal and red LED light therapy to help improve your skin elasticity. Lastly, ‘Lifting Mode’ stimulates your skin tissue and muscles so you can enjoy a face-lift effect.

An investment of the future

If money were no object, LG Pra.L’s beauty lineup is worth buying. Imagine having your own beauty clinic right inside your home! You will emerge beautiful, whenever, wherever.

LG Pra.L currently offers special deals until May 31, 2020. You may check online stores for special deals, and enjoy bundle promotional sets for two LG Pra.L devices at more than SG$ 200 off. You can also get the full LG Pra.L range at SG$ 3,026. It’s available online through authorized retailers at Bestdenki.com.sg, Tangs.com, and Robinsons.com.sg.

The We-Vibe Bond takes your stimulation to greater heights

Bring that foreplay to another level

Published

on

Sex toys aren’t just toys anymore. They’re infused with technology — aiming to help people in the art of self-pleasure, improve their relationship with themselves and their partners, and in some cases, aid in medical reasons.

The topic of sex, sex toys, and owning your sexuality is still a taboo in several countries — mine included — but it’s slowly turning around. This year, we’ve seen sex tech dominating the consumer technology scene. While most of them are apt for women, recently, some toys meant for men are evolving into connected wearables.

Such is the case for the We-Vibe Bond — a connected, vibrating stimulation ring (also known as cock ring), designed by We-Vibe, a brand specializing in all kinds of sex toys.

Cock ring, but make it connected

Connected cock rings like We-Vibe’s Bond can be worn discreetly and be operated and controlled remotely using an app. What sets Bond apart is a dedicated remote control that you can use when you and your partner are together.

The stimulation ring is designed in ultra-soft silicone material and comes with an IPX7 waterproof rating. Meaning, you can play with it in the shower or in your tub.

It has ten levels of intensity and ten modes of vibration, with an autonomy of up to two hours. Further customization of the intensity and vibration can be adjusted using the We-Connect app or via the remote control.

Price and availability

The We-Vibe Bond retails for US$ 129. Shop it on We-Vibe’s official website.

Fitbit decks out Charge 5, partnership with Will Smith

Strengthen up and join Will Smith in his journey

Published

on

Fitness company Fitbit has just announced the Fitbit Charge 5 — its most advanced health and fitness tracker yet. The fifth iteration of the Charge lineup comes with new features and a thinner, sleek design built to empower you to focus on your health.

What do we have here?

First and foremost, the new Charge 5 comes with a brighter, colored touchscreen. It’s designed aerodynamically, and optimized for performance. It’s now equipped with a new AMOLED display, allowing the tracker to have an Always-On display option. Plus, it has better sunlight legibility — two-times brighter than its predecessor.

You can easily view your statistics, receive and send notifications from and to your smartphone, and choose from colorful clock faces — all with a swipe of a finger.

Like other Fitbit wearables, the Charge 5 tracks your heart rate 24/7 and constantly update you on your personal ranges. It also provides a holistic view of other wellness metrics through its Health Metrics dashboard in the Fitbit app. This includes breathing rate, skin temperature variation, and blood oxygen level (SpO2).

Furthermore, Fitbit’s industry-leading sleep tools such as Sleep Score, Sleep Stages, and SmartWake alarms are present in the new Charge 5.

So, what’s new?

Interestingly, the Fitbit Charge 5 comes with Daily Readiness Score. The new features helps you understand if your body is ready for a workout or if you need to rest. Its data is based on your fitness fatigue, heart rate variability, and recent sleep.

It also has a built-in GPS, with 20 exercise modes, and automatic exercise recognition for when you forgot to track your workout. And it has an estimate of your VO2 max, the maximum amount of oxygen you can utilize during your exercises.

Another noteworthy feature is its EDA sensor, which was first launched in the Fitbit sense. The sensor measures your body’s response to stress through tiny changes in the sweat glands on your fingers. And the Fitbit Charge 5 is the first tracker to include the sensor.

What else?

Of course, the battery still lasts up to seven days. And you can choose different bands to personalize your tracker. From lightweight silicone infinity bands, to breathable sport bands, plush nylon hook and loop bands, and even hand-crafted premium Horween leather bands.

The Charge 5 also allows you to experience in-depth analysis, guides, tips, and tricks using its features when you subscribe to Fitbit Premium.

Fitbit Premium with Will Smith

Speaking of Fitbit Premium, Fitbit recently partnered with actor, producer, and musician Will Smith. Smith is joining the Fitbit family as its newest ambassador. Premium members can join along his journey through his video sessions together with Smith’s training team.

The sessions will showcase mindfulness sessions and a wide range of workouts — from HIIT, strength, to yoga, and even meditation. The first session is launching on September 27.

Price and availability

The Fitbit Charge 5 is available online at Fitbit.com for US$ 180 (PhP 11,990), which includes a six-month Premium membership for both new and returning customers. It will also come to major retailers such as Digital Walker and Fitbit’s Official Store on Lazada and Shopee, with worldwide availability this September.

LG PuriCare VoiceOn

LG’s futuristic face mask got an upgrade adding a built-in mic and speaker. Officially called the LG Puricare VoiceOn, the pandemic-necessary accessory is currently available in Singapore.

Wearing a face mask is mandataory but it presents a few problems. If you’re speaking to someone else, hearing their voice can prove difficult if you’re both behind masks.

LG is solving this by giving LG PuriCare VoiceOn users  access to a speaker and a built-in mic. With a voice amplifier, the mask can detect whenever the wearer is speaking and amplify it for them.

This upgraded version has a larger battery at 1000mAh compared to the first generation’s 820mAh. Charging time, LG says, will be around two hours. It also has a smaller motor that should make it easier to wear.

From filtering out the nasties in the air you breathe, reducing waste by allowing you to skip disposable face masks, and down to keeping your skin clear of maskne, it’s definitely tech’s answer to one of the biggest needs during this pandemic. Watch the video below:

Price and availability

The LG PuriCare VoiceOn comes in Creamy White and and Ocean Black and retails for SG$ 249. It’s available through official LG LazadaLG Shopee, LG KrisShop and across all authorized retailers — Best Denki and COURTS.
