The Hydragun comes in a case for carrying it around to the gym or office.

Massage guns have become very popular lately with athletes engaging in sports and fitness activities; as well as people working from home, using home furniture not suited for extended hours of work – resulting in poor postures, back & shoulder aches and carpal tunnel syndrome in the hands.

So a good massage gun has become a must-have for working adults.

The Hydragun is a Singapore-designed, China-manufactured massage gun targeting sports enthusiasts from all walks of life.

Starting from the packaging and the design and build, you can tell the company is serious about making a tool that provides effective healing and recovery for sports injuries or work sores and aches – unlike many no-brand OEM products on the bandwagon that was hastily thrown into a box with minimal documentation and sold for a song.

The S$399 Hydragun alongside a S$50 OEM massage gun from a friend who bought it online. The latter was heavy and unbalanced, had no return policy or warranty and stopped working after two months even though it was hardly used. The Hydragun comes with a 30-day “No Questions Asked” Return Policy and an 18 month-warranty.

In the box, the Hydragun comprises the main vibrating therapy massager (the big gun), six head attachments (four regular, two with stainless steel heads), one charger, one manual, and a robust zippered case to easily carry it all to the gym.

Sunday, March 29th, 2020

So we’re in this period of great stress when everyone around the world is affected in one way or another by the COVID-19 pandemic. Here’s something to “rejuvenate” the skin from the ravishes of life.

* Review submitted by guest reviewer, Jennifer Lee. This review was first published on Haleness Me.

“Rejuvenate” Nutri-Serum Concentrate from Kumuya.

“Rejuvenate” Nutri-Serum Concentrate from Kumuya.

I came by a bottle of Kumuya “Rejuvenate” Nutri-Serum Concentrate and gave it to a friend to try out.

She was so pleased with it that she volunteered to write me a review for it.

Verdict

Oil-free Kumuya is surprisingly lightweight and wearable than most products I’ve used.

I like that Kumuya provides the added benefit as a plant-derived alternative to retinol.

So here’s something outside of tech for our reading pleasure on a lazy Sunday.

The Product

Kumuya Rejuvenate is a cream-coloured, gel-serum packed with powerful actives and micronutrients to stimulate and repair skin structure.

An anti-aging serum, it restores radiance and suppleness on the skin, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by stimulating collagen production and nourishing the skin with vitamins and minerals.
