JBL [Introduction] - Who, Where, Why, What, When?

Sponsored Advertorial

Who is JBL? 

"Hear the Truth"

As their motto goes, JBL believes you deserve truth in sound.

JBL is one of the oldest & most respected brands in acoustics and the brand has been recognized with many awards such as GRAMMYS (2005); Awards Galore (2002); Japan's Stereo Sound of the Year (1985); And many more.

JBL designs and builds audio equipment for
 Consumers; the Entertainment Industry & the Automotive Industry.

When have you experienced JBL? 

I believe many of you might be like me,
Unaware of the existence of JBL.

So, let me highlight to you a few and be mind-blown like I was!

Ever been to Maroon 5's concert?

Maroon 5 is the ambassador for JBL and if you have been to their concert before,
The awesome sound system that projected their great vocals and instruments, was JBL.

JBL are used around the world in most major concert halls!

Concerts/Events too!
Out of 10, an est of 4 are using JBL!

National Day Parade!

I'm sure most of you have been to our Singapore National Day's Parade!
And yes, JBL was the culprit behind those loud awesome sounds projected during August 9th.

Marina Bay Sands.
All over MBS.

Any music/sound you hear in MBS
(incl the rooms and soft music you hear when you walk in MBS)

Been to the new LIDO MAX SHAW theatres?
Yes, the theatres are installed with JBL speakers too!

Why use JBL? 

With much evidence of reviews and personal experience,
JBL provides high quality sounds.

If you're a music lover like me,
I'm sure you're as picky as me when it comes to earphones/speakers/music quality.

Many a times the output of music drops the music quality.
But be assured that JBL provides you with the best quality to enjoy and indulge in your music whether you're using it for personal consumptions (daily music), music on board (in your car), or concerts.

JBL has different products designed and build to cater to different people.

What do JBL offer? 

Entertainment Industry

Big speakers
Used in concert halls or even during normal concerts!
(Jamming rooms!)

Automobile Industry

Speakers installed in cars.
Yes, Ferrari uses JBL speakers,
Bet you didn't know!

Daily Consumer

All the way from home theatre sound systems,
 to iPhone docks, and down to Portable speakers and earphones.
JBL has it all!

I'm really honored to be able to try out JBL products!!

I'll be covering on the Daily Consumer products in my upcoming posts on JBL!
(Cause I only fit in this category at the moment~)

So do stay tuned to this my page to see my reviews of 3 products!

JBL Flip

JBL Charge

JBL Micro Wireless

They seem really big in pictures, but trust me,
these portable speakers are conveniently small and the power of these speakers are insane!

Le Favorite Laneige Skincare & Makeup Product

As all of us know, KPOP is revolving around everywhere now!
And the latest make-up style in town is, Ulzzang.

You'll get to see girls doll up, with flawless skin, doe-like eyes, baby soft lips and etc. 
yet looking as natural as possible!

So, in order achieve the basic Ulzzang make up criteria,
You'll need as flawless skin as possible!


And if you guys know me in real life,
You'd have known that I've very sensitive skin that 
can't accommodate any and every skin care product/cosmetics.

I used to have really dry skin and pimples developing every once in a week.

But, ever since I tried out Laneige products,
My skin was really well-behaved and my skin condition improved tremendously!
I literally fell in love with Laneige's products!


This was how my skin used to look like AFTER make up, 
months before using Laneige products.

All flaky after make up due to my dry skin.

And this is how my skin looks like without make up after 
3 months usage of Laneige products!

Much healthier and gradient! :)

I've actually recommended Laneige to my friends or whenever people ask me what skin care product/cosmetics should they use for their face!


So I'm going to share with you guys today,
What's my favorite Laneige Skincare & Makeup Product!

(Photo credit to Laneige's Facebook)

I believe that you can find the product's benefits and etc on their webpage,
So I won't bother going into details for that cause I feel that what's most important is the results, and the experience. And that's what I'm going to share!


For skincare wise, I've had a hard time thinking which product I should introduce to you guys cause 
I really love and am using many of their products at the moment!
(Because their products are one of the rare few my face can adapt to!)

But if you want me to point out my favorite,
I'd say its their Water Sleeping Pack! 

I know many of you have heard of it from mouths of many before.
Likewise, I myself heard from my friends about this product and the way they say how awesome it was, I was still skeptical until I tried and experienced it on my own.

Gosh, this Water Sleeping Pack of Laneige is miraculous!

As I've said, I used to have really dry skin (yet oily) and I couldn't find a moisturizer that was strong enough to inject moist to my face, yet not causing rashes. 

P.S. The original comes in a full bottle, this picture depicts the product after usage.

This sleeping pack actually works as a "night mask" where you can absorb moist while you're sleeping, especially if you're used to sleeping in Air Conditioned rooms.

But I personally use it during the day too, before applying my make up above it.

Did you know,
One of the reason why wrinkles grow is because your face is lack of moist?


Now for Makeup Product, I don't really use much make up nowadays because of 
Laneige's new Snow BB Soothing Cushion!

This precious is enough for my daily coverage and the best part of it is

If you've tried putting on make up for long hours, you'd usually feel that your face is so stuffy and as if a pimple will just pop out if you keep that make up on for another minute or so.
But I beg to differ with Laneige's Snow BB Cream.

I can go out the whole day (8am-11pm) and feel so comfortable in this BB cream!
And best of all, my sensitive skin is able to adapt to it!!

In case you guys didn't know,
One box comes with One Snow BB Soothing Cushion AND a refill.
And it costs like SGD50+? Which is like less than SGD30 for one!

The price is totally reasonable considering it's quality!!

Love it's slim and pretty white packaging!

And this is how it looks like when you open it up!

So all you do is dap the provided cushion and dap the BB cream on your face!!

Simple as ABC!
How convenient!!

Throwback picture of myself on the first day I started using Laneige's Snow BB Cream!
No make up on except Laneige's BB Cream.

They have many more great products that I've not mentioned in this post!
But it's available in their shop, and you can check it out on their website too.

I strongly recommend their Facial Foam (Multi Cleanser) and Blackhead Pore Strip too!!

Till then,
Stay pretty & natural with Laneige :)
