Benefit's They're Real Push Up Liner

It's been a while since I blogged actively. Not that I've not been buying cosmetics but perhaps it was more to that I didn't have much space to pen down my thoughts. Apologies gals but I'm back again for good!

So I guess the best way to start my blog again is to introduce the hottest, yes I DO REALLY mean the hottest thing in town, "Benefit's They're Real Push Up Liner". They are out at all the Benefit's worldwide counters beginning 27 June 2014. But there was a flash sale at Sephora KLCC earlier and they had limited quantity for sale. I made sure I went there to get mine so that I can share it with you guys.


Now "push up"? Push up what you wonder? Have a look at the liner below. Firstly the packaging is simply slick I would say and it's slim that you can carry it around easily. And oo yea it's a screw cover which means you need to unscrew the cover to open them.


The tip if you could see from the photo below is pointy and is a rubbery texture called accuflex tip. This tip actually helps you line your lid without leaving any gaps. To release the product, you just need to twist below just 2 times and not more than that. Once released, just hold them and go to the base of your lash and line them as desired.


The results of this will be a dark black liner as you see below. Trust me it's something you'll like and also a straight line that you'll be proud of. However you'll need some practice to keep this working for you. Oo and another thing, remember to keep the caps closed very tightly as it does get dried up quite fast.


As I purchased this during their soft launch I would say in Sephora, Sephora was kind enough to give us the goodies below. Thanks Sephora for the love!! I'll come them in my other post.

Get The Scars & Bruises Fade Away...


Quite some time back I participated in a contest Hiruscar. I remember it was something about a scar that has a story to tell. Well, I didn't win the contest but I was certainly glad that I participated. Anyway months went by and one fine day I was surprised by a box that arrived at my door step and I contained all Hiruscar products for me to try. I don't really have any scar myself but I've planned to use it on my dad and see how the miracle works.


To share with you guys on my first product 'Hiruscar Gel', Hiruscar Gel is a revolutionaised 2 in 1 Recovery System scar care product. This product is newly formulated in Switzerland and has the ability to penetrate deep into our skin to regulate the re-generation of collagen to smooth and soften any scar tissues. It also contains natural ingredients to moisturise and protect the scar and further lighten the colour of the skin tissue to help to restore it to a more natural appearance. And you the best thing is that you can apply them on both new and also matured scar.


The second product that I'll be talking about here is on 'Hirudoid'.Hirudoid can be used on bruises, sprains and swelling. Or for some of us who has pain in the muscles and tendons, you can also you them to reduce the pain. What I also heard is that Hirudoid cream also helps in the inflammatory conditions of varicose veins

You can get both items in our local pharmacies and I believe that both are reasonably priced and can be brought for further scar scar. Remember it applies for both new and old scars too :-)

OoO and how can I not forget to mention about this special butterfly bookmark that I got from the team. Im someone who loves reading books and magazines so this will surely be a lot of a help for me. Thanks guys!

Wonderful VanityTrove Collections

As you may already know, VanityTrove Malaysia allows your to customised your trove which means that you're given the full rights to choose what are the items that you want to include in your box to try. This is surely something great especially when you get to choose something that suits you or something that you simply want to give a try. The only thing that I always wished was that there were more options that VanityTrove members add every month so that there's more arrays that we can select them from. But nevertheless, I'm always in love with this box. Over here, i just would like to show you two of my latest trove from VanityTrove late last year (alright, i know if a delayed post, my sincere apology). One of the box here is with selections that I have selected to try and the other box is a VanityTrove selection box (if I'm not mistaken, it was the Christmas range).



Without further delay, lets look at the first trove which was selected by yours truly :-)

1) TruDtox Botanical Tea Blend.
This is one of the multi award best selling detox tea around. And its 100% natural. All you need to do is to brew the tea bag in a cup of hot water for about 20-30 minutes before drinking. You can use them 2 to 3 times a week. And since it's the start of the year, a good detox may help :).


2) Kila Doll Black Pearl Mask
Together with this trove, you get 3 piece of black pearl mask to try. Now this functions exactly like any sheet mask. You apply them to a cleansed face and leave it for about 20 minutes and you'll have a refreshed skin. I've previously used them and I loved it as the smell is not too strong and I've also heard about the benefits of applying mask at least 2 times a week.


3) Dr. Jart V7 Cleansing Foam
This is the first time I'm coming across this brand and this particular cleansing form. I've heard that its excellent as a soothing and moist cleanser so why not give it a try. It fundamentally rehydrates stressed skin and has 7 types of vitamins to neutralise and help to brighten our skin. Will keep you updated once I've tried them.


4) SP Color Save Mask
We all know about this Color Save Mask and the small travel size allows us to just bring it with us easily during our vacation trips. And this is surely one of the reason why I included it in my trove again. And secondly is because I have coloured hair, so this surely helps.


5) Schwarzkopf's Bonacure Oil Miracle Shampoo
Now does this package look so classic. Alright, I just love the brown packaging. This is the first time I've actually encountered this in a beauty box, therefore I quickly grabbed it to try. It suits all type of hair so let's see how it works on mine soon.


6) Decleor's Flower Nectar Moisturising Cream
I'm currently using this moisturising cream and I love how it simply feels on my skin. All I do is apply a reasonable amount to my face after cleansing them. And what I love about this particular cream is that it adds moisture to my skin and at the same time does not leave my skin feeling heavy or oil.


7) Nuxe's Multi Purpose Dry Oil
I believe that I have few of this boxes by now. Yes, but why am I then selecting it again here in this customised trove? Well, it's simply because its a multi purpose oil, which only means that I can use it on my hair, face or body. I love how it does not feel heavy on my skin when I apply them considering its an oil And what I love most is the smell of the oil which is made of 6 precious plant oil. Its just so heavenly I promise.


8) ArtDeco's Eye Shadow
This was a new edition to Vanity Trove's collection so I simply selected them to try. I was not sure of the colour that will be given to me so a silver was surely a surprise. Lets see how I can use them on my skin.



Now done with the first box, let's now focus on the second box with selections from VanityTrove.

1) Blow & GO Smooth - Express Blow Dry Spray
This is a edition from Osis+. I will surely say that it's a good selection to be in the trove as most of us nowadays do blow dry our hair. And we all want to make it fast. I've used this a few times now and I just love how my hair feels. All you need to do is to spray this to your damp hair and then just blow dry your hair with the hair drier like you always do. It gives you this wonderful feel and gives a nice smell to your hair. And yes I hear you, it does not make your hair feel greasy.


2) Cyber Color's Gentle Eye Makeup Remover.
It comes in a very cute container and it's something that you can pack and bring with you when you're travelling. Surely a must have in your make-up pouch.


3) Nail it with Bloop
I've received a few selections of this similar range from other beauty boxes, however, I've never gave it a try. But recently I've heard a lot of bloggers blogging about how easy it is to apply them. So just wait for my blog post soon on this.


4) Murad's Skin Perfecting Primer
Skin Primer is surely a must have in your list as it kind of gives you a good 'canvas' for you to work your magic. All you need to do is to pump this to your palm and apply them to your face. After applying this, just continue with your compact powder and others.


5) Clarin's Double Serum
It's said to act as a double serum and prevents ageing to our skin. I have not tried this yet but I've always only heard about the good stuffs that Clarin's has to offer. So this is in my next list to try.


6) Kate's Gel Eye Shadow
Can you see the particular colour tone down here. It's simply amazing how beautiful the gold colour looks. I've not tried it yet but I believe that it's going to be a colour that I'll'll love.


That's all for now. Will keep you updated once I've tried them.

AXA 110 Cancer Care - Let's start fighting

One of the most, yes most difficult sickness to handle is cancer, be it any type of cancer. Cancer is not always fatal as I've seen or heard stories of whole lot of them who have successfully survived cancer due to early detection or so but I've also heard enough about those who have lost their life fighting cancer.  

Its not easy fighting for cancer as it involves emotions, care and a whole lot of expenses. Most of the cancer treatments are expensive but its of course nothing compared to our previous life. And the most toughest part is emotions. You should be caring and understanding to cancer patients as they are going through the most toughest phase of their life and added with the heavy treatments and pain that they undergo.

I came across a person who have fought her life fighting from cancer. She had to undergo so much of treatments and most of her days were spend in the hospital. She fought and fought and the family was so much in pain too not being able to help her. She passed away few years later but her determination is something that you would remember.

On the other hand, I also came across a person who detected the cancerous cells way much at the earlier stage and as she was able to afford a good treatment, she ensured that she went through all her treatments. She controlled her environments and what she consumes. Of course, she was also affected emotionally but there were always people around her to assist her overcome things. And slowly the treatment won the battle and she's now back healthy.

With this in mind, AXA has successfully introduced the 'AXA 110 Cancer Care' which is the event of cancer, gives the policy holders the chance to start their treatment as early as possible and lighten their financial burden due to the illness. If you would like to know more about this wonderful and most thoughtful plan, just visit https://www.110cancercare.com/

Uriage's Moisturising Refreshing Cream Gel

Have you ever come across Uriage brand? Uriage's head office is based in Paris while the production site is set up at the source of the thermal water. Uriage provides a full range of hypoallergenic products formulated with Uriage Thermal Water. 

I was lucky enough to try the Moisturising Refreshing Cream Gel which is suitable for normal to combination type of skin. Now this is great as I have a combination skin and I always look for a gel type of cream so that it can penetrate well to my skin. I have been using this cream gel for a few months now and wondering why I'm loving it that it deserves a write up?


Well first of all, I like the light feel of the cream gel. It's very light and which means an application of this cream gel is just flawless. It also has a matifying agent which simply means that it reduces shine on my skin. Wow! Isn't that simply great? This means every time I apply them, I immediately have an oil free skin. Applying them is so simply. All you have to do is to apply them on your palm, rub it together and apply them to your cleansed face every morning and night. You can then apply your pressed powder after using this cream gel and you automatically have a matte type skin. Something that I believe a lot of them with combination or oily skin would love to have. Or at least I love to have :-)

Imedeen Classic - Added Definition

I've been pretty occupied this few months, with having more than one engagements to work on and with having clients out of Malaysia, life was just all about..yes ALL about work and only work. Added I got attacked by bad cough as well. While i may forget to talk my cough mixtures on time, there's one thing that I never forget to have daily. What is this you wonder?

Yea, it's my new addition to my daily routine recently. The ever famous 'Imedeen Classic'. For those of you who followed my blog will know that I recently added 'Imedeen Classic' to my daily diet. All I need to do is just to have 2 tablets a day of the miracle 'Imedeen Classic' pill and tadaaa you're supposed to have enhanced skin quality.



Now did this really work? Sometimes skin quality is something hard to be showed on a photograph or to be tested. However, how if you walk to a skincare boutique to get some products and the sales assistant tells you that your skin is good and you only need one product to just help you maintain it? Or you realise that your skin is smoother that before. Well this was the exact compliments that I got about a week back.

So, are you someone wanting to have improvements to your skin? Then why wait? Just purchase the ever famous 'Imedeen Classic' and add them to your daily routine. It's something really easy to be done. After your meal, just have 2 tablets of 'Imedeen Classic'. The tablets are tiny and round so it's really easy to swallow with a glass of plain water. If you wonder if it will suit your taste buds, it surely will as it tastes like any other tablets thou the smell of the tablets are slightly fishy I felt, however it's something that you would easily get used to it.

Imedeen Classic has definitely added some definitions to my skin and I'm sure it will to yours as well, if you take them continuously together with some basic skin maintenance.

The Lilac Box's Cult Box #1

By now most of you would know how crazy I am over beauty boxes and how I try to get most of them. So recently when The Lilac Box guys announced about their first Cult Box, I quickly subscribed and eagerly waited for the box.  

Now are you like me and want to know what was in the first Cult Box of The Lilac Box? Here you go...



 Eugene Perma Nourishing Hair Bath
I was first confused on what was the use of this product, on if it was a shampoo or a conditioner but now i know, its a shampoo. It helps to detangle the hair and leaving it both soft and shiny. Now thats what any girl wants right. 

Eugene Perma Nourishing Mask
This mask is said to nourish the hair fibre deep down and be able to protect your hair from the UV rays. Additionally also helps to strenghten your hair and keep it soft and shiny as always. The mask has the color of a slight pink and it immediately caught my eye and the smell is so divine. 



Mistral Verbena Shower Gel
This shower gel is enriched with natural healing chamomile, aloe vera and shea butter and is said to leave your skin supple and refreshed after every bath. Now most of you would also know that I just love trying various kind of shower gels or in fact any shower & bath products. So im gonna so love this. The texture of this gel is certainly thick and i can already smell the scent of the lime the moment i've open the container.



Vagheggi Cleansing Milk
The Cleansing Milk is a basic gentle skin cleanser, moisturising and calming, and is suitable for all types of skin. Now this is a good news as i generally have a combination type of skin, so i can then use this product too.

Vagheggi Rebalancing Face Lotion.

The Rebalancing Face Lotion is to be used after cleansing your face with the cleansing milk. It is said to provide freshness to the skin while maintaining skin elasticity. 



Vagheggi Oligominerals
This product came in a blue glass bottle and immediately caught my attention (yes, i love the color blue!). When used, this product can restore the skin's equilibrium and therefore alleviate and soothe impure, irritated, dry, sensitive, delicate and stressed skin. Its suitable for dry skin of the face, body and eye contours.



Malu Wilz Eyeshadow
This eyeshadow is a high pigmented iridescent duocrome colors. Now the color that I got in the beauty box is more an earthy nude color. Im eager to see how it'll turn up on my skin.




Yes! Nurse Hand Cream
Now this is a famous range of hand cream and I just love trying hand creams so having this in my beauty box was really good. Yes! Nurse Hand Cream is an intensive moisturising hand formula specially designed to counteract dry, sore and cracked skin




Overall, i've never come across this brand of products before and now having the opportunity of trying them is simply amazing. I think The Lilac Box has done a great job in introducing them to us :-)
