3M LED P1610 Polarizing Light Review

My little one’s ergonomic study table by the hall window doesn’t get much light from the lights in the hall at night. We didn’t get him a proper table lamp since he has not had much need to do work at night. That’s why we settled for a simple lamp from IKEA first.

I actually didn’t really like that the light didn’t have good coverage as his table is quite big. I didn’t want to risk spoiling his eyesight so in the end we ended up hardly using it and we also minimised the need for him to work at his desk after sunset.

With my little one entering Primary One next year and with the impending homework nights, we are really thankful that 3M offered their latest polarizing light for review.

This new addition to the family of 3M table lamps features the unique ability to offer FIVE colour selections.

LED Colour Change – NEW!

There is also an advantage to having a circular-shaped light as compared to the traditional rectangular ones. The circular design covers a wider area, reducing blind spots around the table.

3M™ Polarizing Filter Technology & Air Guide Technology

With 3M’s polarizing filter technology, glare is reduced by up to 80% as the technology only filters comfortable light through, as compared to most other lamps which allows both comfortable and harmful light through.

At the same time, it converts harmful light into optimal lighting and there are zero UV rays.

The 3M Air Guide Technology also eliminates multi-shadowing effect and glare, making it more comfortable on the eyes when reading or doing work using the light. 

As with earlier 3M table lamps, the 3M LED1610 Polarizing Light also comes with a 5-level brightness adjustment.

And now we can allow him to work on his stuff at night at his table with a peace of mind!

The lamp retails at $289.

BioRoyale – The simple solution to hairfall

In January this year, BioRoyale sent over their ‘GroBack’ set of hair products, which aims to reduce hair loss, promote hair regrowth and prevent greying hair alongside a host of other benefits.

BioRoyale review

I was especially elated to review the set because I had been feeling quite depressed in December during my Taiwan trip as some of the photos taken definitely showed that my hair parting was on its way to receding and I definitely had a greying hair problem 🙁

BioRoyale review

My husband had also been pointing out my hairfall problem every time he vacuumed the floor. It doesn’t help that I have white laminate flooring in my hall so it’s really obvious when there’s long hair on the floor.

When the BioRoyale products arrived, I had actually just started using a hairfall-control shampoo I had bought from iherb. Thus I decided to start with using the Overnight Hair GroBack Vitalizer to try out first.

I have to honestly say that I only felt the full effect of BioRoyale GroBack products when I finally used all four products in late January. It was very drastic in fact.

BioRoyale review

Have you heard of the 60-second hairfall test? It is combing the hair from back to front continuously for 60 seconds and then counting how many strands of hair fell out in that minute. I was told to try it out for three consecutive days, and always before shampooing to check the efficacy of the products.

On the first day that I was going to try out all four products, I combed my hair and I was super stressed when I saw the amount of hair in the sink.

BioRoyale review

After counting and feeling depressed as I counted, I bade goodbye to a grand total of 24 strands of hair. Then I used the BioRoyale GroBack shampoo and conditioner during my bath. After my shower and after towel-drying my hair, I applied the After Shower serum. At night before I slept, I applied the Overnight Hair Vitalizer.

On the second day, I combed my hair for 60 seconds again, this time feeling a lot more stressed.

BioRoyale review

I was amazed that I only dropped two strands of hair!!

On the third day I did the test, I didn’t drop a single strand of hair.

That is not to say that I no longer drop hair at all. That is not possible as it is actually normal to have some hairfall.

It’s excessive hair loss that I’ve been combatting and I have to say that the BioRoyale ‘Groback’ hair products have definitely helped me with a problem that I’ve had since 2011 after I had my boy. My post natal hairfall problem was so serious I had to chop off my locks and go with a short bob for quite awhile.

Anyway, here’s a summary of the specifications of BioRoyale hair products and their benefits:

  • BioRoyale hair products are made in Singapore and are approved by the Health Sciences Authority of Singapore (HSA)
  • Packed with vitamins A, C, D and K to strengthen, soften and shine your hair 

  • Natural Ingredients are used and the products are Sulphates and Parabens free.

  • Calendula, Buccopa Muneri, Cedarwood oil and natural DHT blockers help curb hair loss
  •  Buccopa Muneri – Decreases hair loss, prevents split ends and nourishes hair roots

  •  Argan Oil – Shines, strengthens & softens the hair

  • Green Tea Extract – Promotes hair growth. DHT Blocker

  • Cedarwood Oil – Anti-seborrheic. Fights hair fall and dandruff

  • Tea Tree Oil – Excellent antimicrobial, anti-dandruff & antiseptic

  •  Cochlearia – Helps regenerate hair roots by improving circulation to the scalp

  •  Calendula – Reduces hair loss. Soothes inflamed scalp. Clears scalp infections

General guidelines in using the products (from BioRoyale’s site):

  • Scalp conditions should start improving in 7-15 days
  • Hair fall in most of the case will reduce within 2-3 weeks of regular use as per usage guidelines.
  • You should be seeing new hair growing within 1-3 months.

After I finish this set of BioRoyale GroBack products, I’d definitely get another set on my own! I highly recommend the full package set!

Not only does the conditioner smell very pleasant, it really instantly softens the hair and detangles. The shampoo and conditioner are suitable for daily usage and I’ve also found that with the use of the BioRoyale product range, my hair is less oily towards the end of the day. The pumps for the After Shower serum and Overnight serum are not so user-friendly as the serums are very fluid so they tend to spurt out quite a bit. Hence it’s not so easy to control which areas of the scalp I want to apply the serums to. I’ve found that the best way to use it is to press very very gently so only a drop or so comes out at a time on my fingertips and I will apply that directly to the scalp. My hairfall is under control, so I guess my technique must be working!

Products are available online, or you can buy them at Four Seasons Market Place (Parkway Parade/ Marina Bay Link Mall).

If you’re not sure if these products would suit you, you can opt to purchase the starter trial pack where the four products are in less quantities.
