Do you believe in eating bird's nest for enhancing complexions? I definitely do. I took a tiny teaspoon of it almost daily in the final trimester when I was pregnant with Jolie, and my skin became noticeably soft and smooth. Jolie turned out to have amazing skin, although I'm not sure if it's due to the bird's nest consumption.
But will bird's nest work as part of a skincare solution? One company thinks so. Purer Skin has come up with a complete line of cleanser, toner, serum and night cream that contain pure bird's nest.
Dr. Henry Leung, an expert in the field of Traditional Chinese Medicine from Hong Kong University – discovered a method to liquefy pure bird’s nest into highly concentrated active ingredients that can be easily absorbed by your skin. You can read more about the science here and the five bioactivities.
With the purity focus, Purer Skin products are also free from parabens and sulphates.
Anyway, I have a set of the Purer Skin Symphony to try out. I haven't started yet, but I'll let you guys know later if it really works!
1. Purer Skin Crème Cleanser – S$25.90 (incl. GST)
2. Purer Skin Clarifying Toner – S$35.90 (incl. GST)

There's a 30-Day Money-Back-Guarantee, no questions asked. If you are not satisfied, you can return the miniatures with the receipt and proof of purchase for a full refund.
The products are also available at selected Watson's stores.
Seems like it would make a great gift for moms, aunts, girlfriends and whoever believes in bird's nest and skincare.
Meanwhile, speaking of Christmas gifts, I've been shopping for mine mostly online! No time for real life foraging in crowded malls and queueing at the cashiers. There's so much online - eBay, Asos, Rakuten, Luxola, etc. Zalora has a nifty Christmas guide, and you can even get a S$10 voucher when you sign up for their newsletter. Happy shopping!
