Spa At Home With Panasonic Nanocare Facial Ionic Steamer



What do you do when you have a beautiful Sunday afternoon, two good friends, and the Panasonic Facial Ionic Steamer? YOU PLAY SPA! =D

Before we started, Min cooked lunch for me. Her specialty – instant noodles.


Her instant noodles are no joke! Everyone can cook instant noodles, but not many can make such a delicious bowl! Really yummy!!!

This is how the world sees us:


This is how our friends think we behave all the time:


What we really are:



That was taken last year at Sentosa’s Halloween event – Spooktacular. I was a zombie nurse and Min was a Gothic character. You can read about our crazy night out in the Halloween Zombie Nurse & Friends post!

Okie, to neutralize the scare factor, here’s a picture to make you go “awwww~~~”


Min’s niece is such a happy baby! Alyssa smiles at everyone and looks at people with wide-eyed wonder, observing every part of you, every movement you make and is responsive to your advances. And her hair has a life of its own. So cute!

Ah yes, that’s me without a mask… because babies don’t judge. Lol.

She and her toddler sister are the reason for the erm, very colorful mess in the background. Quite a refreshing change for a post, really.

Vapor needs water, so we filled the water chamber.

Full = Steam for 6 minutes

Half = Steam for 3 minutes


And then realized that we have to place it on a flat surface otherwise it will leak. Min’s scurrying for tissue at the back. “Tissue! Tissue! Fasterrrrrr!!” HAHAHA!


We managed to find a box and propped it on top. Funny noises emitted from the steamer.


Steam appeared after 10 seconds. We were very amazed.




Keep it about 20cm away from your face.


While you’re at it, belt out some tunes.


And, DONE!


The nano-ionic steam supposedly reaches the deepest layer of keratin in your skin to achieve deep moisture retention. As compared to normal steam, nanometer-sized steam particles can better penetrate your skin.

I would love to try out the steamer for myself, but given my current vulnerable skin condition, I decided not to risk it. Thanks Min for being my model!

After that, Min went on to apply her toner and moisturizer, which you obviously cannot tell from this picture. HAHA.


I had SO MUCH FUN! So precious to have an afternoon dedicated to just spending time with Min. 😀

Alright, see ya in the next post! Even MORE FUN!! HAHAHA!!

By the way, our matching blue-white striped tops were completely coincidental.  😀

About Bun Bun

Hello! My name is Juli and Bun Bun is my alter-ego. I blog to share my love for makeup, how to apply it, and what works or what doesn’t work, all from an Asian perspective.

My first makeup product was a shimmery light blue lipstick which I proudly wore all over my eyelids and lips. It cost $2.50, felt like $250, and made me feel like a million bucks.

Throughout this blog you will see Bun Bun in different poses.

Instead of using numbers (3/5, 4/5) or alphabets (B+, A+) to rate products, I put Bun Bun in different positions and expressions to represent the rating given to the product after a review.

In Bun-O-Meter, the first on the list would mean a 5/5 rating and the last one a 1/5 rating.

You can always refer to the sidebar any time you don’t understand what Bun Bun’s pose means.

I hope you enjoy reading my makeup and beauty posts as much as I did writing them.

Talk to you soon! =)
