Annie's Way: Arbutin + Hyaluronic Acid Brightening Jelly Mask Review

Hello guise,


I'm back with a review :D This time I'll be talking about one of my favourite mask which is the Annie's Way Arbutin + Hyaluronic Acid Brightening Jelly Mask. I came across this product through a Youtube review but sadly I don't remember when or from whom, but this product really works wonder on my skin!




It's for whitening, moisturizing, minimizes fine lines, leaving skin radiantly bright.

This is my second purchase of this awesome mask, and this time I ordered them from Maskslim which I came across through Google-ing. I don't remember which shop I bought the first time so thankfully I actually found another online shop that sells them in Malaysia.

This mask got a different range, but I've never tried others as this is the most loved one (from reviews I've read). And the Hyaluronic Acid contains really helps my dry skin.

The product inside




It doesn't really have any fragrance, and I love the cooling feeling as I lay down on my bed waiting for the time to scrap off the remaining product.

The application is not hard, you can just follow the steps below:

Step 1: Clean face and apply toner as a base
Step 2: Apply Jelly Mask with thickness approximately (0.3-0.5cm)
Step 3: After 30 mins, remove by scraping gently.
Step 4: Wipe off with tissue and rinse with water.
Step 5: Apply moisturizer

It is recommended to apply twice a week, or as needed.

Some benefits of this mask:


1.Remove Blackheads & Dead Skin

2.Brightening & Improve Skin Dullness

3.Calm Sensitive Skin

4.To Minimize Pores

5.Soften Skin & Lift Away Impurities

6.Deep Moisturizing

7.Prevent & Reduce Wrinkles & Fine Lines

You can see more about it through this video.


The part about the blackhead is the most amazing to me. Because seriously it helps a ton! When I first try this product, the amount of blackheads reduced a lot. Now, I use them once a week to make sure it won't be as bad as before. Unfortunately my phone camera doesn't really pick up the blackhead in the picture so I can't show it here. But I hope the video above shows a lot.

Beauty Talk Oxy Mask:Week 2

 Hello guise :D

Here is my week 2 testimonial on OxyMask.
 In this review I will share my weekly skincare routine while using this oh so amazing mask.
Since in previous post I stated that it is advisable to use this 3 times a week, I decided to use them on Sunday as the start off the week, then in the middle of the week on Wednesday, and lastly on Friday!

The best thing about this mask compared to a sheet mask is that I actually can apply it in the office. The past month I kept needing to stay at office till late and even on weekend so my skincare routine is a mess nowadays. Using sheet mask in the office (at night especially) can be a bit overboard i think, but for this Oxymask, its very easy to apply :D



The picture above on the left is the picture when I first try the mask, and the after picture is taken 2 weeks after application.

Do you know why the skin got brighter almost instantly when you apply them?
Because lack of oxygen in skin will make skin looks dull while OxyMask as per named gives our skin a boost of oxygen. I love the fact that this mask gives me enough hydration, and also gives instant result to make my face glow and radiant skin.

Loceryl Malaysia Launching Event

Hello guise!

How do you define beauty? Is it all about pretty face? Slim figures? Stunning body shape? 
Or is it something more?

I think little things like how healthy your hair or nails is are much more important. We all knows how to maintain a healthy hair. There are so many product out there that could help in giving enough nutrients to strengthen, thicken your hair etc. 

But nails? Apart from classic mani-pedi session which usually cost a bit of money, how much more you do you know about maintaining healthy nails? And how to know is you nails are healthy or not?

Have you heard about fungal nail infection? It's actually the most common nail disease but not many realized they have those until its a tad too late. Fungal Nail Infections or Onychomycosis is a fungal infections on either fingernails or toenails, but mostly occur on toenails. The sufferer of this conditions are mostly adults, and some of the indications are yellow or brown appearance of nails, thick or brittle nails, and in some cases nails are separated from the nail bed. Sometimes it also gives of a foul smell.

this is a less 'horror' example (credit google ;D)

Some common cause of nail fungal infections are:

- Injury that occur on nails
- Tight footwear
- Pre existing medical conditions

Those who are suffering from this problem should not take it lightly as it could cause infection to other nails, and sometimes damage the nail permanently. If the infection gets bad, the worse case of scenario is that your nail will have to be pulled out by doctor. And that is very painful! (not that I've experienced it)

Some people might think it's such a nuisance to go see doctors for such 'non-threatening' problem. Now, Galderma had come up with a simpler solution for most of us with their prescriptive treatment for fungal nails infections. Their product, Loceryl® from France is a nail lacquer treatment is now finally available for purchase in major pharmacies in Malaysia and I was invited to attend their media launching event in Posh Nail Spa, TTDI not long ago.

diy salt scrub counter!

It was such a lovely event where we received a complimentary manicure session and also got to try making our own salt scrub as we arrived. The event then move on to the introduction and launching of this product. Speeches were given by Jean-Sebastien Ricard, the General Manager of South East Asia of Galderma, Mr. Teh Chean Boon, Sales & Marketing Manager of Galderma Malaysia, and also Dr Noorzalmy Azizan, Consultant Dermatologist, Hospital Kuala Lumpur. The event was emceed by the lovely celebrity emcee Cay Kujipers.

What is Loceryl® ?



It is a well known treatment and clinically proven prescription which releases the active ingredient Amorolfine 5% to kill infections caused by the three types of fungi.

- Dermatophytes (most common cause)
- Yeasts
- Moulds

The anti-fungal effect is maintained for a minimum 7 days within the nails (which means it only needs a once a week application) and based on clinical trial on patients, this product could completely treat fingernails infection up to 6 months, and 9-12 months for toenails.




With this post I hope more people will gain awareness on this common yet highly ignored problem. And for those who is suffering with this condition or showing early signs of it, you can now grab yours and treat them at the comfort of your own home.

Beauty Talk Oxy Mask


Hello guys :D

I'm back with my review series in collaboration with Beauty n Me and in this post I'll be introducing another product from Beauty Talk which is the Beauty Talk Oxy Mask. This will be my first week review on my first impression on the product and a little bit information for you guys!

First thing you need to know about this product is that it is all about the Oxygen!
It is well known how enough oxygen is very important to maintain a healthy skin. It's been emphasized so many times how hydration is the key and as we know, oxygen plays a big role in keeping skin hydrated. 

Why Oxygen you say?
For your information, oxygen is essential in skin cell renewal and metabolism. It also provides energy to the skin. Lack of oxygen in skin will cause blood circulation and the skin’s ability to detoxify are adversely effected . And also cause deterioration of collagen production which will leads to premature aging .

Beauty Talk Oxy Mask uses exclusive formulation of OxyPercalin® (an oxygen carrier) which ensures rapid penetration of oxygen deep into the skin to repair and renew skin cells, our skin cells will possess the amazing self-healing to gain beauty naturally

Liposome Bio-Technology is used in this product. Our skin has one layer name sebum membrane is to protect the skin from injury by outside, but these sebum membrane also rejects all the nutrient enter easily into our skin. The is Liposome Bio-Technology lipophilic and similar with our skin structure, so Oxymask can penetrate effectively onto the deeper skin, and to release pure oxygen with slowly, continuously and enhanced the oxygen concentration in skin.

Product Packaging

STEP 1: Apply Oxymask 

After cleansing the face, apply the mask onto skin with your fingertips, concentrating specially on areas with pimples and clogged pores.

STEP 2: Massage gently

Bubbles will be produced through gentle massaging. The Massaging will also help the OxyPearcalin® to boost the rate and amount of bubbles.

STEP 3: Bubble on face

Leave the bubbles on for 5-10 minutes, rinse off with water and apply Oxyaqua immediately to optimize the absorption!





My first impression on this product was "Oh this is interesting!". I've never came across a mask that will produce bubbles so I was excited to try it. It has a refreshing scent, and light consistency. The product is also easy to apply on skin.


As you can see, my skin tone does bright up a little with just one time application. The oiliness on nose area is fone and the skin looks smoother and more hydrated. It is advised to be used 3 times weekly, I can't wait to see the improvement on my skin soon. In some cases, a mild tingling sensation can happen but I didn't get them. But no worries as the tingling sensation is a good sign that the product is doing its job well. Tingling sensation could happen if your skin is too dry.

Kiehl's Fun In The Sun: Secret Garden One Utama

Hey guise!



So, if you saw my previous 'drama' post on how much I want to go to the Kiehl's Fun In The Sun event, well guess what? I got invited!

I was actually a bit late that morning because I got lost searching for the lift to go to the Secret Garden. I actually went to look for it's location one day earlier so I wont be like a lost kitten but well, I still did in the end. Silly me!(figures -__-")



Anyhow the dress code was to wear something Summer inspired, so I just mix and match stuffs I have in the wardrobe. Seriously, it was a headache since I'm very bad at it. Especially when I have limited clothing


So, as I arrived I was greeted by the receptionist who handed me my goodies back and I rushed inside since the event already started. Thank god, I didn't miss anything major since it was more of a lay back, chilled out kind of event. Oh by the way, my short walk to where the event is was not boring at all. I never knew such pretty place existed in One Utama *checks for later visit*




After saying hi to Mamasan and some others, I was invited to get some refreshments and also some titbits from the area where they served foods. We had a blue soda (which I refilled 3 times!), and some other foods like caramel pudding, cakes, and a few other stuffs that I don't remember but pretty sure they were delicious.




And the chit-chating, pictures snapping session started!


my terrarium!

We took pictures as we wait for our turn to build our own personal terrarium. To be honest I've never heard of them before, but gosh, now they're so adorable that I want to make more for my room!

And it's just as simple as ABC.

instructions for us!

choosing our plant, and putting the stuffs in!

So now moving on the the highlight of the day!
Kiehl's Ultra Facial Oil-Free Cleanser & Toner. 

Kiehl's Ultra Facial Oil-Free Gel Cream.



The Kiehl's staff helped me to test my skin condition for two areas, my cheek and my forehead. And I got 'normal to dry' on forehead, and 'dry' on my cheek.
 (Yeah, all the air conditioning in office does makes my face super dry these days)

I was told that the Kiehl's Ultra Facial Oil-Free Gel Cream was intended for normal to oily combination skin, but when I got home I still insist on trying them. And guess what? The gel works like miracle. My skin does gets moisturized better! And this is not just some sweet talking.

But before I tell more on the results I had, let me introduce you to all 3 products in this range that I received for testing.


The Ultra Facial Oil-Free range offers a three way solution of your skin problem which is 24 hours HYDRATION, PORE REDUCTION and SHINE CONTROL.

The three major ingredients are

Glacial Proteins, Desert Plan, and Oil Free Skin Conditioners 




 My Review:

I have a dry to normal skin, so based on the product description I found out my skin type wasn't actually suitable for this range. But I decided to try them since I received a complete full sized set. The cleanser and toner is fine for me, not drying at all. But the holy grail of this range to me is the gel cream. Even though the product is intended for normal to oily skin type, I find this gel cream to be very suitable for my dry skin! It actually moisturize it enough that I don't have flaky and dry looking skin when I wear makeup ever since I've been using it. I'm pretty sure I'll buy another bottle of it once I ran out. I LOVE the cooling feeling after application of this gel. And it does gives instant result. My skin feels so soft and velvety.

Oh I also saw some tips on these products!

Cool Tip: 
1. Put the toner in the fridge for an ultimate cool experience!
2. For extra cool feeling, dab a bit more gel to the wanted area!

Price:
Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Oil-Free Cleanser (RM 85/150ml)

Holika Holika Mini Haul




I received my internship allowance not long ago, and decided to treat myself for a small haul at Holika Holika. I was actually aiming for some skincare products, but wasn't sure which brand to try.

 Since Holika Holika was having up to 60% sale during that time (and the fact that they have such cute packaging) I decided to try on some of their products.

I got a total of six stuffs which are:

- Holika Holika Smoothie Peeling Mist in Lemon Squash



- Holika Holika Pig Nose Clear Black Head Massage Gel 
- Holika Holika Pig Nose Clear Black Head Deep Cleaning Oil Balm


- Holika Holika Sand Nail Polish (Mint Cream) 


- Holika Holika Nail Polish (Cherry Blossom and Milky Lemon)

And by the way, the Pig Nose naming did cracked me up a little. So funny! I read it somewhere on the net, but someone guessed that they named it after pig because they clearly don't have blackheads. LOL! Not that I know if it's legitimate or not. Haha!

So far, I love all the products I bought. Maybe I'll do a review about them.

And ohh I also got a cute Holika Holika eco shopping bag and Holika Holika umbrella as a free gift.

And by the way I spent about RM110 for all those. I got 20% off for the peeling mist, 50% off for each of the Pig Nose Clear Black Head products, and the nail polishes was having a buy 2 free 1 promotions.


**I did this entry long ago, but my inner-grandma makes me totally forgot about it. But not posting it seems like a waste, and I can't bother to rewrite them. Haha thats explains the internship allowance part, because hey I've finished my internship last June!


Till next post, toodles~! ♥ミ
