There’s finally a solution for the whole Samsung Galaxy Note7 battery fiasco! In case you didn’t already know, the tech giant started a global recall for their Galaxy Note7 last Friday after reports surfaced of these devices catching fire while charging due to battery cell issues. Here’s what you need to know about getting your Samsung Galaxy Note7 replaced from 16 September to 2 October. 

1. Are you eligible for a phone replacement?

Samsung Galaxy Note7 Exchange Programme

To be eligible for the Samsung Galaxy Note7 replacement programme, your phone must be purchased from local telecommunication operators, major consumer electronic stores, authorised mobile retailers, Samsung Experience Stores and Saumsung Lazada Singapore Online Store.

2. How does the replacement programme work?

It’s simple. Submit your preferred mobile collection time slot online at within the booking period of 9 to 25 September. You will be able to opt for self-collection at Singapore Convention & Exhibition Centre, Level 2, The Crescent by free home delivery. 

3. What’s the earliest date I will be able to receive my phone? 

While the booking period starts on 9 September, the actual Galaxy Note7 exchanges will not start till 16 September (the programme ends 2 October). In the meantime, Samsung has officially stated that “Courtesy devices are available for loan (subject to stock availability) to Galaxy Note7 customers, while they wait for their Galaxy Note7 exchange”. 

4. What will users be getting as a replacement? 

Galaxy Note7 users will be exchanging their existing Galaxy Note7 mobiles for an entirely new set in the same model and colour as purchased. 

5. What should you bring for the exchange?

Bring along your Galaxy Note7 (complete with the box and all additional accessories that came with it), the appointment email or screenshot of it, and your NRIC. The original Galaxy Note7 device has to be returned to the Customer Service Consultant before you will be able to receive your replacement set. 

6. Will users with an already damaged Galaxy Note7 still be able to replace it? 

Yes! Fortunately, Samsung will be replacing any and all Galaxy Note7 during this replacement programme, screen cracks, water damage and all. Users who have already done a one-for-one phone exchange prior to the recall will still be eligible for the exchange. Handle your new phone with care! 

7. What about users’ phone warranty? 

Don’t worry about it. In addition to the replacement sets, all Galaxy Note7 customers who participate in the exchange programme will have the warranty period on their device extended to commence from the date of the exchange

Teenage Gorgeous You 2016: Tips To Get Acne-Free Skin

31 Aug 2016 by Venetia Sng

Bothered by acne that won’t seem to leave you alone? It’s a common problem and we totally feel your pain. Thus, for the third challenge of Teenage Gorgeous You! The Social Challenge 2016, we got our finalists to share their #SkinHacks so that you too, can combat acne like a pro!

#1 Don’t squeeze, don’t touch

You can’t see them with your naked eye but your hands are full of germs and bacteria, and trust us when we say that you wouldn’t want to touch your face with those yucky hands. Yes we agree that those pimples are eye sores but popping them might make your acne more inflamed plus leave an ugly scar, so leave those pimples alone!

#2 Honey

We bet that you didn’t know honey has anti-bacterial properties which kills bacteria in the oil glands plus speed up the healing process while soothing the pimple. Dab the honey on the affected area, leave it on for 30 minutes and then rinse it off with warm water. This is effective only if you repeat the routine a few times a day.

#3 Banana peel

If you’ve ever tasted a banana peel, you’d know that it’s awful. But why waste the peel when you can use it to help reduce acne inflammation with all its antioxidant goodness. Simply rub the inside of the peel against the affected areas until the peel browns and wash any residue off with warm water. Like honey, the banana peel is no miracle treatment, so remember to repeat the routine a few times a day to see results!

#4 Ice ice baby

Ice cubes are great if you need a quick fix! Though it doesn’t remove the pimple, it reduces the redness and soreness and thus making it less visible. Just use the ice cube and rub gently on the affected area for 3-5 minutes and you’re done!

#5 Sufficient beauty sleep

We cannot emphasise how important it is to have sufficient sleep! Your body rejuvenates while you sleep so it is of absolutely importance that you get quality sleep. The best time when your body recuperates is between 10pm to 2am, so make sure you go to bed before 12am everyday!

#6 Drink lots of water

This is a no brainer. An average adult body is made of 60% water so it’s only natural that we need to replenish and hydrate ourselves. But, did you know that not consuming enough water can lead to you having acne? Basically, your body won’t be able to flush toxins out the usual way as there’s a lack of fluids. And eventually when your system builds up too much toxins, your body will expel it through the skin, thus leading to acne.

#7 3M Nexcare Acne Patch

With all that said, how about just using the 3M Nexcare Acne Patch and let it do all the work for you? It’s so thin that you can wear it out without worrying about people noticing the patch(es). The patch absorbs oily secretion and pus with 3M’s own technology Tegasorb. It’s also suitable for all skin types plus a drug-free and non-drying method to remove excess sebum from your clogged pores. With minimal hand contact and no skin irritation, the 3M Nexcare Acne Patch clears acne effectively and efficiently without leaving any scars!

3M Nexcare Acne Patch is available at all leading drug stores and supermarkets.
