Lemon Essence Mask Brightens My Day..


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:

Description:
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.

Benefits:
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.

Voices Think:
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.

MAC: Eye Set


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.

Get me toned!


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 :)

Freshlook Illuminate's Free Trial

By now, am sure most of you out there know that I have a special interest towards contact lenses and I've been thinking of getting colored lenses of some events next month. So here I was browsing the Internet, looking for some idea on what to get and coincidentally i ended up at Freshlook Illuminate's website. And guess what, there's some promotion going on where all you need to do is sign up and you'll be getting 3 day free trial pairs.

Wow, this is simply a great idea by Freshlook as usually you do not get to try lenses before purchasing. But I think we should really thank Freshlook for this as am sure more people out there will sign up for this and give it a try and with this, am sure you'll have more people out there purchasing it.

Now, back to me. Did i sign up for this? Yes, of course I did. I quickly checked for my lenses powers and keyed in all the important information. Now am just waiting patiently for it and don't work girls, I'll surely post about it  once I get my pair of trial lenses. And to you girls out there, why waiting? Simply get to their website and register for a trial pair for yourself.

Correct the Flaws with Colors

Am pretty sure you have heard about colour correctors right? Now what are those? In brief, its simply a tool o array of colour to help side the flaws or in fact highlight certain areas right before you apply the concealer. As I'm managed to get some info, I just thought I should share it with you here.

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..

Olive Oil & It's Benefit..

I'm sure most of you out there would have heard about Olive oil and it's benefit. Olive oil is overall the type of oil which can really benefit you from various way and that's the reason most of us do include Olive oil in our daily cooking routine as well. I'm not going to talk anything about cooking over here, as that's a part only my mum is good at but what I would like to share here is about the benefit of Olive Oil to our skin.

I've read about it the magazines and I've also googled about it online before and I realise that it really does do good to your skin and that's also a reason why those skincare lines out there produces their products with Olive Oil included.

Olive oil helps to promote a smooth and radiant complexion, helps to maintain the elasticity of the skin, heals brittle & dry nails as well as soften cuticles and lastly conditions and adds shin to skin. I've managed to extract the details on how you can add them in your daily routine as below:

Bath:
Simply add about ¼ cup olive oil and several drops of essential oil (Lavender is good to relieve stress) to your bathwater.

Dry Skin:
Gently massage a small amount of olive oil on extra dry areas such as your elbows or heels.

Face:
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.

Hair:
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.

Body Shop's Shea Soap


With the current heat out there which is usually humid, our skin gets really dry. So what is the remedy for it? Mostly what we all do is to consume more water plus apply lotion as often as possible. Well, after all what can we do more right?

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.

Description:
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.

Voices' Verdict:
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 :).

Bobbi's Color Strip Collections

Bobbi always comes out with wonderful products just to make everyone happy and I can say that this is one of them. Yes, Bobbi Brown has come up with some latest limited edition eye shadow strips and pot rouge strips. This wonderful arrays surely made me so happy so here am i sharing it with you. The colors to be honest would look good on all skin tones and even on tan skin tones like mine.






So did you enjoy looking at those colors? Have you decided which strip to go with? For the price you pay for Bobbi Brown products, I personally feel that the price of RM 110 and RM 120 respectively is alright considering the few array of colors in each strip and this would be great to create smoky eyes effects too.

Now on my favourite strip. Which one do you think I would go for? :) Well, yes my personal choice will be 'Bonfire Eye Shadow Strip' and 'Orchid Eye Shadow Strip'.

Get Nature Smooth & Inner Rich with Asience

Recently Asience brand launched another type of its shampoo which is called ' Asience Nature Smooth'. So now you'll come across another pearly green color bottle compared to the usual gold color bottle. And being very generous, recently they gave away samples of both types of shampoos under their brand to be tried out by the public. How did they do that? Simple!. All the public has to do was to cut out the coupons in the magazines and redeem it at the said counters. And since I'm a fan of all those magazines, i was able to redeem two sets of each type as I had two magazines with me.


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.

Get Me Some Purple Shades..

With the heat which is still around the corner, you rarely would want to go out. Am i right over here? Well, since early February if am not mistaken, the weather has been really hot and humid out there. And for people like me with migraines, well it some times makes it worst and i guess the only cure is to drink lots of water. Well, I am trying to drink more water now, trust me :-).

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 :)

L'Occitane: Extra Gentle Soap


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.


Description:
The shape was just square shaped and it was pure beige in color which truly shows that it's pure. It's wrapped properly and the details on the soap was described in its cover. The moment i opened the wrapper, i was taken away by its smell. Yes it has some kind of lemon grass type of scent in it.

Voices' Verdict:
True to it's name, the soap was really gentle of course. Every time i use it, i can feel the freshness it gives my skin and the scent really awakens you. I usually use it in the morning just to wake me up and prepare me for the day. It is so gentle that i doesn't irritate your skin especially for us with sensitive type of skin. This soap is enriched with Shea butter so of course it leaves you feeling smooth and soft. I also like the fact that its leathery and trust me a bar of soap really last long.

So girls, if you're looking for a vegetable based soap which is gentle to skin, then this is the one for you, thou yes I do have to agree that its at the pricey side. If you ask me, I'll get it when I feel like splurging into something :)

Introducing Rexona Shower Clean


Staying in a country where the weather is hot and humid most of the time, am sure we need something to make us feel fresh. And with all this, the only thing that would come to mind is deodorants. There's a few types of deodorants like the roll on, dry stick and spray and I'm someone who prefers the spray type. And guess what, my vote goes to Rexona as I'm a faithful fan of them. Currently am using Rexona Women in Passion.

I've been waiting for their new range which is all out in advertisements. Yes, that's their 'Rexona Shower Clean' range. Apparently it makes you feel fresh, clean and dry throughout the day. Now that's what we want right. Ooo yeah by the way, of course the packaging of this range, ie. the blue color packaging has made me go gaga over it as yes am a fan of blue.

I've been hearing that you can get it in local supermarkets and places like Watsons, so why waiting, go grab yourself one. I'm going to do just that soon guys. To rexona, thank you for coming up with this wonderful range.

My Latest Addiction


My latest addiction has gone to where? Most of you would be wondering where, am sure. Yes, to answer you, it has gone to contact lenses. Recently strolling around Alamanda has made me wish for a colored contact lenses. Being a loyal glasses wearer, i thought of opting for a chance. After all life is fun only when you add of some spice to it right. But there's still many questions unanswered for myself like which brand to choose? Which color would suit me? Etc.

I went to the opticians and asked if they have any samples for me to try before wearing. But sadly their answer is no of course. There are some wonderful brands out there like FreshKon, Freshlook, etc. Colors..well variety of arrays from greys to browns to blues to greens to amethyst. Now which color suits me? How can i decide without trying on my eyes right? I realised that FreshKon in Singapore offers free trial lens, and now i wish is that Malaysia has it too :) as i couldn't even google to check what color suits a certain skin tone. So if any lens retailers are listening this, why don't you guys include trials as well? As this would allow more people to try it before buying.

As now back to myself, I've landed myself to the brand i show above for now as their FreshKon Mosaic range looks beautiful and natural, but i have yet to choose the color as I've no idea which color to choose. I don't want to simply choose one and how if it doesn't really suit me. oOo yeah by the way FreshKon Mosaic range costs RM75 a box.

If you guys happen to know any trial lenses around in kl, please feel free to let me know :)

Smell fresh like a Baby..


When you first wake up in the morning most of us will surely feel lazy, especially on a Monday when you have to wake up early for work or classes. After taking bath, yes you'll feel much fresher but 100% fresh? I doubt it as we are still sleepy or our mind says 'lets get to bed or lets just chill'. As for myself I really feel fresh when i apply this specific cologne that gives me fresh and cool feel through out the day. Now are you wondering if am using a baby product as my title says so? Yes, i am and today's review is about Johnson's Baby Cologne in Morning Dew. And trust me, of course this can be used my adults too :)

Description:
This is a gentle, midly scented cologne that can be used after bath to give u a fresh and cool feeling. I choosed the 'morning dew' scented one. Why? 2 seasons. One is of course because the smell is fresh and the second reason is before it comes in a purple packaging ( yes, I go crazy over purple nowadays :) ).

Voices' Verdict:
I've been using this for about a month now and I usually everyday after bath as this surely gives myself the fresh and cool feeling. Its also my favourite as it's mildy scented and it doesnt dry out my skin like some of the other cologne's might. I'll surely repurchase it once im out of it's supply as its price is affordable and yes it makes me feel all good :).

Ingredients:
Alcohol Denat., Water, Fragrance, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil.

  • Actively update my blog. Blogging to be honest is my hobby as i love writing but the past year i've been hooked with work that i've not bothered to update my blog. So yes, hope this year i'll update it more often for you guys out there.
