Temple Spa….Self Pampering Galore! (Comments Off)
Introduce me to an individual who does not enjoy a spa break…they are as unusual as those who do not enjoy a nice warm dessert on a cold winter’s night! I, for one, can speak for the fact that treating oneself to a spa break, or even a facial massage for example, is one of […]
Laura Mercier Foundation Primer Radiance (Comments Off)
I have found the Holy Grail of all primers….Laura Mercier Foundation Primer Radiance! I have tried quite a few primers in my lifetime from Smashbox, GOSH to Urban Decay but this brand wins the battle hands down. I stumbled upon it whilst staying over at a friend’s a couple of months ago. During my morning routine […]
There are a few things in my makeup bag that have been a permanent fixtures there for a while now…products which I like to refer to as the Holy Grail….Estee Lauder Double Wear Concealer is one of them! I was introduced to it about six months ago as a trial size (if my memory serves me right, […]
Clarins Double Serum vs. Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair (Comments Off)
I have hit an age where I have to be stringent about my skincare routine…especially in the evening. I have become fanatical about removing all makeup off my face completely, toning and moisturising and even if it is 2am, you will still find me hitting my bathroom to carry out the necessary tasks behind closed doors to […]
Chanel – Le Brush Creme — 64 “Inspiration” (Comments Off)
Allow me to be honest here but I’ve never been a huge fan of cream blushers. If my memory serves me right, the last tinkling I had with such a product was with Two-Faced duo stick whose name escapes me but then again, it is pretty unforgettable yet memorable at the same time but for […]
Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock SPF100 (Comments Off)
Having grown up in sunny California where the sun can be excruciatingly hot and wreck havoc on your skin by way of sunburn and unsightly peeling, I had always been a fervour user of sunscreen on the face whenever I go out. Whether it’s laying out by the pool or just for every day wear, […]
Breaking the Hiatus! (Comments Off)
Sorry fellow geishas for my absence on here. Thank you to all my followers for checking in regularly to see if I’ve posted a new article and for pestering me privately for more ramblings…I had been….you guessed it…competing again!!!! I tell you what, once you do ONE show you keep telling yourself “just one more […]
Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Lip Duo (Comments Off)
I don’t know about you long haired vixens, but there is nothing worse than having loose hair whip around your face when you’ve got lip gloss on on a particuarly windy day. The strands of hair just stick to your lips and drag gloss across your face and forget about casually flicking hair out of the […]
YSL Rouge Pur Couture Glossy Stain (Comments Off)
Like a magpie atttracted to shiny things, my eyes were immediately fixated upon the trademark golden cap of YSL Rouge Pur Couture Glossy Stain as I walked through the department store and browsed the aisles for the latest makeup tool to add to my already heaving makeup bag. I have heard rave reviews of this […]
Likas Papaya Soap! (Comments Off)
In a previous post, I discussed my enthusiasm at having discovered Skinetica Anti-Blemish and how, as part of my beauty regimen, it has improved my skin hugely. Allow me to introduce you to another find which has rightfully earned its place in my bathroom cabinet and has worked miraculous wonders on my acne-prone skin. My skin has […]
Skinetica Anti-Blemish (Comments Off)
Skinetica Anti-Blemish is one of those products that Glossybox has introduced me too late last year around October. I was sent a sample size of the bottle and it had been sitting in my beauty drawer for a while. My skin had been clear for some time due to my recent discovery of the AMAZING papaya […]
MAC Mineralize Skinfinish – Gold Deposit (Comments Off)
One of the great things about being an identical twin is being able to snoop in her makeup bag whenever I come to visit and knowing that whatever colour or product looks good on her is bound to suit me too! And it’s like an instant shopping fix in her bathroom as I test out various […]
Bobbi Brown High Shimmer Lip Gloss – Pink Sequin (Comments Off)
I am an addict for lipglosses. Lashings of it…lips drooping in the stuff…you can bet your lil tush I apply it every hour on the hour, regardless of whether I need it or not. But not just any lip glosses. Those who have been following my blog will know that I have always been an […]
Yummy, Delicious Caramel Toffee Fudge Protein Cupcakes! (Comments Off)
Yes, you heard right. CARAMEL TOFFEE FUDGE protein cupcakes! With a healthy twist of course! I may be two weeks out from my next competition, but I refuse to be miserable with my food. Rather, I like to be inventive with my food and get creative in the kitchen. I add spices and herbs to […]
Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream (Comments Off)
Yes, I know what most of you are thinking…..has City Geisha been living under a rock? Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream has been around for quite some time now, if I am not mistaken, for nearly a decade so it’s hardly a “new” product but I have only just discovered it this year and wish […]
Chanel Illusion D’Ombre – Ebloui (Comments Off)
Will my fellow Geishas ever forgive me for leaving you hanging, salivating after my next posting, waiting with sheer disgust at how nothing new is posted every time you log on to my blog? I am SORRY. I know that I did say I was going to compete in October at my next bodybuilding […]
Banana Toffee & Candied Cherry Protein Bars (Comments Off)
I love making my own little treats…treats to satiate my sweet tooth when the afternoon slump hits me at work or when I need a fast acting energy boost before a workout… a good portion of my Sunday afternoons involves prepping all my meals for the week ahead to take to work as well as making […]
Miss Galaxy Universe! (Comments Off)
Wow. Where has City Geisha been???? Think it’s been over 3 months, nearly 4 months since my last post? Phewww! I do apologise with all sincerity for my absence and silence but there is a very good reason for this. I competed on stage for the first time in my life in a fitness/beauty pageant called […]
Going Back To My Roots (Comments Off)
Felt like going back to my humble Vietnamese roots tonight and rustled up some fresh summer rolls. Dead easy to make. 10 minutes from the time you fill up the kettle for your pot of boiling water to that first moreish morsel in your gob. Rice paper Small amount of rice noodles (keeping my carbs […]

Hooray to my lovely sister in Paris who has introduced me to another fab French product! Bioderma Crealine H20 Solution Micellaire! Ubiquitous in virtually all French pharmacies and supermarkets, Bioderma has pioneered micellar solutions. Without getting all technical and boring the heck out of you, these solutions invole micro-emulsion to eliminate dirt and makeup. Think of […]

I recently experienced a really bad breakout and some serious irritation from another product so my wonderful little sister from Paris sent me the following lotion to my rescue, having raved about this miraculous product for some time now. Totally desperate, I used it and it’s worked wonders. Avene Cicalfate Drying Repair Lotion (40ml) The Cicalfate […]
