Biotherm - Travelling Kit


Yesterday as i was walking towards The Gardens for my Benefit workshop, i remembered that I got this sms from Biotherm about its free travelling kit for the first 50 people who shows that sms. As i was already there at about 1.30 pm, i thought of just going over to check if they still have it. Enquired with the SA and thank god i was early as i was the person number 45 to redeem it. Well why wanna ignore it if im entitled to it right and also when im a avid user of Biotherm.


So below was the Biotherm product in that kit:

- Biosource Clarifying - Cleansing Gel

- Aquasource Moisturizing balm - protective lip care - shiny effect

- Aquasource Superserum - Intensely moisturizing - oligo - thermal concentrate

- Biosource - clarifying lotion


Not bad not bad..heheh..but i realised only now that they did not include Aquasource Non Stop oligo-thermal gel - intense moisturization. Hmm :-( well guess its ok.

Benefit Fabulous Flawless workshop

Remember about the Benefit Fabulous Flawless workshop I blogged about somewhere last month? Well I signed up for today’s section as 2pm at the Event Room in The Gardens. This is the very first time they have done such a beauty workshop and this is also the very first time I’m attending such a workshop. Not expecting much, I reached by destination at about 1.55pm. It was at the 1st floor of The Gardens. This event room is a small room where I guess they do most of their events. This room was decorated to address the Benefit’s event. So of course with all the deco’s, balloons and make-up items in all the tables made the room so cozy and perfect. To be honest I liked the ambience it created.

There were refreshments served varying from buns to beautiful pink cupcakes (maybe pink was chosen as it is benefit’s color)..Anyway what was good was each table (2 people per table) has an array of products that will be used during the workshop. So everyone had Benefit make-up products in front of them making it easy for them to try when the presenter explained. Basically this workshop was all about applying the right make-up, the right way to achieve the right flawless skin. The presenter to be honest was really good in explaining as she exactly told which product suits the oily skin, dry skin and the combination skin. She also helped to direct us on which shade would suit our skin tone. She started from the very first step of prepping our skin to the very last step of applying the lipstick. As I have this tan kind of skin and also kinda oily skin, below were my choices:-

  • 1st Step – Cleaned our skin from dust and previous makeup using ‘Gee That was Quick’. This did a good job in clearing my skin and it suits all type of skin.
  • 2nd Step – Prep our skin using ‘Women Seeking Toner’. This is 3 in 1 toning lotion helps to control oiliness and shine.
  • 3rd Step – Applied ‘eyecon’. This helps to fade dark circles if used in a long term.
  • 4th Step – Applied ‘Rebel’. This is said to help to moisture the skin and it also works as a tinted foundation. Comes in 2 shades. I used the darker shade and was also told that we can use it alone without any makeup as well.
  • 5th Step – Applied the base. ‘Dr. Feel Good’ can be applied for oily skin and ‘Tat Gal’ can be applied for dry skin. I applied ‘Dr. Feel Good’ as I have this oily skin. I liked the way it made my skin feel. So soft that it helped to cover the pores.
  • 6th Step – Applied ‘erase paste’ for under eye area. This works as to cover the dark circles under your eyes. There was 3 shades and I used shade no. 3 – deep. You can also apply this on the face as concealer to cover any areas with blemishes or discoloration.
  • 7th Step – Applied ‘Posie Tint’ for my cheek area. This gave me a very natural glow and you can also apply it on your lips and it’s said that its kiss proof!
  • 8th Step – Brighting Powder’s turn now!. For my kind of skin which is quite tan, I applied ‘Dandelion’. It gave this very natural look and my face looked so fresh. Heard its one of the best sellers too.
  • 9th Step – Was to apply the eye shadow. As my eye lid has some discoloration, I was given ‘Lemon Aid’ to be applied. After applying that I then applied the creaseless eye shadow cream of ‘Lana, samba-dy loves me’.
  • 10th Step – It’s now time to apply the mascara. As I’m a lover of natural look, I choose the 'BAD gal waterproof mascara in Black'.
  • Last Step – Finally it’s time to apply the lipstick. I chose the ‘Passionista’ Betty as it had this glitters’ plus natural color which is the closest color to my lips.

Towards the end, there was 5 lucky draws given out and not to forget the goodie bags. Can say that the goodies were worth it actually as it had RM 20 coupon to be used in the Benefit counter, Dr.Feel Good (mini size), Benetint (mini size) and Silky Finish Lipstick in raisin’cane (full size).
And the RM100 voucher is fully redeemable + the RM 10 coupon ( I did not use the other RM 10), with this I got myself ‘Dallas’.


To those who missed it, well hope you can join us for the next one thou am not sure when they have another one.

Origins – Sensory Therapy - Peace of Mind - Gumballs


Ok Ok, am sure my now you are already wondering why is she suddenly getting Origin’s Gumballs? Is it all worth it? Is it expensive? Well there was this one day where I was looking at their Product Guide and my eyes caught this product of theirs. So my review as below:

Description:
These gumballs come in cute containers and the one I got is the smaller containers as I just wanted to try it. It’s round of course since it is gumballs ;) and its pure white in color. It gives you this tingly taste as it has peppermint included.

Voices’ Verdict:
To be honest, I love chewing gums especially when im working or perhaps this habit started since I started working in the consultancy line. Anyway I personally like this gumballs as it’s not HARD like the other gumballs I used to get before. This gumball is soft and earlier to be chewed. Secondly I love it’s peppermint flavor as it wakes me up. The price might be a lil’ expensive for gumballs but no hard trying it once..

Price:
Container with 20 Gumballs for RM 13.50

Origins – Sensory Therapy, Peace of Mind

Origins recently came out with their Sensory Therapy range. The one am going to review here is the Peace of Mind – On the spot relief. So my reviews as follows:

Description:
This on the spot relief with the mind clearing formula can help to melt away pressure and tension within minute. All you have to do is massage a portion (pea sized) of the lotion at the back of your neck and temples and breathe deeply. This ‘Peace of Mind’ comes in a cute packaging and has a green colored lotion. It also has peppermint fragrance.



Voices’ Verdict:
As I’m a person who is prone to headache’s thou am not quite sure on the cause of it, I decided to just give it a try. I like the peppermint fragrance of it as it helps to soothe and calm myself as its true that fragrances such as peppermint helps to calm you. The liquid is also not oily so which means you can just apply it anytime. I can’t say it helps to make my headache go away or what but all I can say is that it helps me to stay calm and release stress away. Well being an auditor my profession, guess stress just follows you where ever you go. So in conclusion, Origins’ Peace of Mind does seriously peace my mind..

Price:
15 ml for RM 48

Bobbi Brown - Cleansing Oil


Well I have this habit of checking cosmetic websites and I try to find the Malaysian website of it so that I can check if there are any promotions or anything. So as I was checking again and again the Bobbi Brown website, I was surprised that Bobbi Brown has enhanced their website. And the good part of it, they introduced their new Cleansing Oil. And the best part of it was that they gave samples of it for the first 200 people who show the Mobile coupon in their Bobbi Brown counters. And oo yeah they also have Treasure Hunt where you have to burst the bubbles and they have two complimentary gifts in those bubbles. First is their RM180 worth of makeover and another one is the RM50 worth of eyebrow shaping. I tried my luck in it too and I got the RM 180 worth of makeover.




I collected my sample of Bobbi Brown Cleansing Oil from Mid Valley stand alone Bobbi Brown counter today and I also redeemed my makeover voucher there. I was asked if I wanted a fresh makeover or a heavy makeover for some special occasion. I just requested for a simple makeover that suits me for work, in brief just a very natural makeup. Well the SA started prepping my skin first as they believe that if the skin base is good then everything goes fine. The SA started applying oil free foundation powder on Honey color. And also a bronzy color blush to suit my skin tone and lastly he lined my eyelids with dark black eyeliner and he also used the bronzy color eye shadow. Sorry guys for forgetting the eye shadow and the blusher color specifically (bad memory I have). But I liked the end results. Pure, simple and natural look. I like the foundation powder which hides all my redness on my skin. And this made me actually purchase the oil free foundation powder.. Will try and update you guys with the review..

Parkson Shopping Spree 2009.

Hey guys as most of you beauty bloggers know, yesterday (11 July) was Parkson’s shopping spree. Well they even gave goodie bag worth RM 200 for the first 500 people who register. But yeah you must have the cutting from the female, Eh! And another mag (sorry guys I really forgot the name of the mag).

So being curious on what goodies will be given, I kind of decided to go get it. I arrived there about 10 am and to my surprise there was already a long line of about 50 people. Wow. That was definitely so fast I thought as Pavillion opens only at 10am. So it kind of makes me wonder how this much of crowd managed to go in. Guess from the car park and stuff. Anyway below is the photo of what was in the goodie bag. Kinda worth it of course as they even had some Parkson vouchers.

And if you spend more than RM 100 yesterday in Parkson, you too get to redeem a Dior gift. So above is also a photo of the gift I got. Will try those stuffs and post and update you guys after trying those products. Till then visit by blog frequently to check the updates :-)

d’ Hair Shop Paris – Deep Moisturizing Shampoo & Shampoo Bar


d’ Hair Shop Paris opened its new branch in mid valley few months back and I got a chance to try their shampoo plus their shampoo bar. I actually got it during their 50% promotion as a gift to their client during their new branch opening. Catch my reviews as follows:

Description:
The deep moisturizing shampoo comes in this purple triangle shaped bottle and the shampoo bar is round in shape. The color of the bottle and the shampoo bar actually varies according to the type of shampoo as they do have shampoos for colored hair etc. So you can actually expect to see colorful bottles of shampoos in this shop.

Voices’ Verdict:
The SA told me that one of their best sellers is their deep moisturizing shampoo. I tried the shampoo back home and I personally feel that this shampoo has good fragrance and is really gentle to your hair, so this shampoo would be really good for those with thin hair. Sadly, since my hair is really thick, I had to use quite a bit volume of the shampoo. However, like said before, it will surely benefit the ones with thin hair. Now as for the shampoo bar, it is really handy and small which means you can bring it together with you anywhere you go (even in the plane as it’s a bar not a liquid). I find it really useful especially when you’re travelling. So heads up for d’Hair Shop Paris for creating or in fact for having to come up with this unique idea of shampoo bar.

Price:
Deep Moisturizing Shampoo - 250 ml for RM 35.90 / Shampoo Bar for RM 13.90
