I've always heard that one of those regime that you should not skip is applying your facial mask at least once every week. How many of us each do that? I know not many of us and I'm certainly included in that group of people. But recently me being active, I decided to try my level best to include this skin regime. After all its only once a week and all it takes is about 10-20 minutes. Yes girls, only 10-20 minutes. Professionals has advised not to wear your mask for a long time. Me being me, the first mask i tried was this essence mask from Elianto. I tried the 'Lemon Essence Mask' which is suitable for all skin types. My reviews are as below:
It's a paper sheet type of mask and it looks just like any other mask (white color). But what I like the most about this is that it's really moistened as even after 20 minutes of wearing in an air conditioned room, the mask was still very much moistened.
According to Elianto, the lemon extract helps to purify and tighten pores. The vitamin E and collagen contained would help to increase skin elasticity and help to whiten your skin.
Firstly, I know I shouldn't expect miracle in just one application but one thing that i realised after wearing in that my skin felt much softer which is because this mask also contains good amount of lemon essence. And oo yeah, it gave me instant brightness.

While walking around Mid Valley few weeks back, I just thought of going to the MAC store to check out if there’s anything new or perhaps to check if the set my colleague told me was there or not. Now wondering what set is that? Well, MAC had this particular eye set which comes with an eye primer/strengthener, eye mascara, eye liner and eye makeup remover. And guess how much was it? It was only RM 115. So since it was worth it, of course I didn’t want to miss my chance to grab a set of it. Again it contained all the below items.
- MAC Prep + Prime Lash
- MAC Zoom Lash in Zoomblack
- MAC Softsparkle Eye Pencil in Nightsky
- MAC Pro Eye Makeup Remover
Am not really sure if they still have this set but what you can do is just to call any of the MAC store and ask them for this eye set. If they still do, please ask them to reserve for you as its finishing fast.

Somewhere last month, Bio-essence came out with this specially designed even for it's Celebrity's Choice products. It was called 'Celebrity's Choice 14 days Slimming Challenge'.
All you had to do to qualify for this challenge was to send a photo of yours together with a slogan plus your personal details. And this is the wow part now, where those selected for this trial was given full size products of Celebrity's Choice to try and the winners from this challenge won fantastic prizes too.
Being me, well of course I sent in my application but did not get selected BUT what surprised me was when last weekend I received a letter with a product. It was a thank you letter plus a trial size of Inchloss Body Cream. Well it might not be something huge but what matters is their appreciation towards those who participated.
Thank you Bio-essence :-) You definitely made my day last week with that little surprise. Now, just wait for my review alright :)

To hide redness, all you need is the green shade corrector as it helps to reduce the redness.
To hide dark circles, all you need is a pink shade corrector as it helps to cover the dark circles.
To look bright & fresh, just apply a shade to neutralise such as purple color. And for me, I personally prefer applying white colors powders just to brighten up :-)
Hope this gets useful..

Simply add about ¼ cup olive oil and several drops of essential oil (Lavender is good to relieve stress) to your bathwater.
Gently massage a small amount of olive oil on extra dry areas such as your elbows or heels.
You can simply create a home made facial mask with olive oil, honey, and an egg yolk. Beat all those items and apply to face. Leave on for 15 minutes and rinse with water.
For a simple oil treatment, warm several tablespoons of olive oil (again, not hot). Rub into scalp and hair. Cover with a shower cap or small plastic bag. Leave on for 20-30 minutes.
Try it when you're free and am sure you'll realise the benefits of Olive Oil.
I simply tried switching to this moisturizing soap which was a gift from my friend. This is actually a shea soap from Body Shop. Now lets see how did it fare.
This of course looks like any other soap, in fact it is the same common shaped and its more onto the beige color. It has a very mild buttery smell and I guess this would suit sensitive skins as well.
When I used it as part of my daily routine, i felt as thou am applying a lotion as it really did moisturise my skin and it didn't really dry my skin out like the other normal bar soaps. My skin felt more moisturised thru out the day and I liked it as the smell was very mild, infact I don't think you can really smell it at one glance. For a bar soap, I can say that it really lasted long as it didn't really disolve fast which is actually good i think :)
If you're actually looking for a moisturizing soap, I guess this could be in your list and the price is affordable for a Body Shop range. And as for me, I think I might repurchase it :).

Now, what each box of it contained? Well, each of the boxes had a travel size shampoo bottle and a travel size conditioner bottle. I haven't really got a chance to use it yet but do definitely wait for my review alright, but from the feedback's i got from my colleagues and friends, I've heard that it doesn't really ruin your hair and it's worth the money you pay for it. But do also note that shampoos and conditioners react differently for individual hairs so reviews may vary.
But overall thanks to Asience for the complimentary shampoos.

So with me not wanting to go out of the house unless I have some important errants to be done, i filled my time with some experiment on Ianti's Nail Polish. Yes, and its 'Ruby Purple' shade. Erm, I've been quite amazed with how purple turns out looking good on tan skins so here I went getting it in this color of my choice.
The thing i like about this nail polish brand is that it has more arrays of colors and trust me its easy to apply too as it dries out fast. And oo yea how can i forget that it also stays longer as it doesn't really chip easily. And overall its cheap too. So if you would want to get some color in your life, how about trying 'ruby purple' nail polish :)

Well yes, i do agree that i love products such as bath gels and soap. Yes, especially those handmade ones. The last time i went down to Bali, i quickly grabbed different kind of handmade soups. So when L'Occitane had its Christmas set last year, i got myself some of the value packs. So here is my first review on L'Occitane's Extra Gentle Soap.
