Shell FuelSave Diesel Euro 5 launched in Malaysia!


Shell Malaysia has launched its Euro 5 Diesel fuel in mid December 2015 in its ongoing efforts to encourage  consumers to be more fuel-efficient. This Shell FuelSave Diesel Euro 5 is designed to last longer per tank. In addition to that, the new fuel also aims to provide consumers who want high quality, fuel-efficient diesel that is compatible with modern diesel engines that require low sulphur fuel.
Tuan Haji Azman Ismail, Managing Director Shell Malaysia Trading Sdn Bhd and Shell Timur Sdn Bhd. said that as one of the leading fuel retailers in Malaysia, Shell has always been a pioneer and a champion for fuel efficiency, as we encourage drivers in Malaysia to consume less fuel. The introduction of Shell FuelSave Diesel Euro 5  is an affirmation of our commitment to help consumers make smarter choices on the road. By providing drivers a more efficient diesel fuel, we are enabling them to go further and do more in the long run.

Shell FuelSave Diesel Euro 5 is now available at selected sites throughout Peninsular Malaysia, in accordance with the company's plan to ensure that high quality diesel is available for its customers. Shell aims to invest into its expansive network to quickly extend availability at more locations.
In its efforts to encourage drivers to be more fuel efficient on the road, Shell Malaysia is also partnering with premium automaker BMW Group Malaysia in creating awareness on the importance of fuel efficiency and emissions responsibility on the road.


Sashi Ambi, Head of Corporate Communications, BMW Group Malaysia shared that BMW Group Malaysia have been driving for the introduction of Euro 5 specified fuel since 2009 when the premium automaker introduced its fleet of BMW Advanced Diesel vehicles as part of the BMW EfficientDynamics program. He said, “BMW EfficientDynamics is our innovation strategy for the introduction of premium vehicles which not only truly embodies the promise of Sheer Driving Pleasure but to also drive the introduction of industry leading ideas, practises and technologies that are relevant and responsible.
  
Shell FuelSave Diesel Euro 5 features Active Efficiency Ingredients, which is designed to improve engine efficiency from the very first tank, helping vehicles use fuel less quickly. It also has a special detergent designed to maintain engine condition by helping prevent the build-up of injector deposits.


The fuel has an ultra-low sulphur content of only 10 parts per million (ppm) of sulphur compared with 500 ppm of sulphur in Shell FuelSave Diesel Euro2M. When used with compatible Euro 5 engines, Shell FuelSave Diesel Euro 5 enables the advanced engine and emission control systems to perform optimally, just as they were designed to, while reducing emissions.

Shell Malaysia plans to roll out the product at selected stations in the next few months. Currently Shell FuelSave Diesel Euro 5 is available in five stations such as :-

L'occitane Pamplemousse-Rhubarbe collection offers quivering accord that tantalizes the nose and the taste bud. When Pierre Herme places Grapefruit at the heart of a creation, he means to celebrate all its facets. And that includes the slightly bitter, white inner skin – its character underlined by the green and crisp aromas of Rhubarb. This beautifully balanced note is soon ruffled at its heart by sensual, piquant spices. In this original composition, woody notes of Cedar conjure up the sensation of mischievous Grapefruit cutting through the tartness of Rhubarb stalks.

Head notes: Mandarin Orange

Out of the 3 collections, I prefer the L'occitane Pamplemousse-Rhubarbe because it has the refreshing citrus scent which keep me fresh and awake throughout. Don't forget to check out  L'occitane x Pierre Herme Christmas set promo here.

So I would like to share some Tips to have Longer Lasting Fragrance here. In fact the secret is in your daily body care routine. Build up different layers of fragrance from your shower gel, body lotion, deodorant and finished off with a spritz of fragrance behind your ears and on the nape of your neck to have a lasting effect. Lastly don't forget to touch up at mid-day with roll on or body spray.

Hope this give you some ideas what Melvita & L'occitane got to offer this Christmas and what you can pick for Christmas.  For more info visit http://my.melvita.com/ and http://my.loccitane.com/

No more shoes odour or smelly feet with Gran's Remedy!

People always say that give a girl the right pair of shoes and she can conquer the world. I got to agree with that! 
 
I never thought of the importance of having the right pair of shoes until I wore my favourite Sketchers Go run 2 in Pink back in June . Honestly I never thought I could climb the 1200 steps to the top of Sigiriya Lion Rock (one of the must see Unesco site in Sri Lanka) BUT I DID!! This shoes is super light and flexible and it makes my climbing easier. I'm so happy that I made it up there because the view up there is super breathtaking!


So I wore the shoes while backpacking around Sri Lanka for a week. My shoes are exposed to the sun, rain and soaked in sweat. When I returned I felt my shoes are dirty and smelly but I didn't want to wash it because many people has told me that it will spoil the shoes (i.e the glue will come off). and I really do not want to risk that because I really like this shoes.

So I tried various method to salvage my shoes...from putting pandan leaves in the shoes to spray my favourite fragrance into it...hmm it doesn't really help to take away the shoes odour! At that point, I really upset and thought of tossing it away.

Well Shoes/Foot Odour is one of the most common problem which we don't really talk about in Malaysia, a lot of people are embarrass to even to admit that they have this problem. So what causes shoes odour? Well I google and found out there are 3 things that cause shoes odour

Bacteria – This is the number one cause of shoe odor. Once bacteria inhibit the shoes, it will automatically cling to the feet every time it is worn especially without socks on. The bacteria especially like to thrive on shoes if the shoes are moist.

Sweat – There are instances when people have naturally sweaty feet. This causes the bacteria to thrive and probably even multiply.

Other Foot Problems – There are times when the smell is caused by a wound that is infected. If in case you have a wound that needs to be given attention, give the attention that it needs immediately.

So I think my shoes odour problem are mainly are caused by dampness I got from the rain in Sri Lanka. I believe often when we came across this problem, we just throw away our shoes right? But it's such a waste...

So when I was offered Gran's Remedy for Smelly Feet & Footwear (Original) from http://www.gransremedy.com.my/ to try, I immediately took up the offer  to see if it really works since I really ran out of ideas/methods to remove my shoes odour. And in their website they said Keep your smelly shoes fresh as summer breeze! I like that!

Gran's Remedy is made in New Zealand. Using a traditional remedy handed down through the generations since 1982, the Gran's Remedy for Smelly Feet and  Gran's Remedy for Smelly Feet & Footwear Footwear is a unique blend of powders that treats the problem of smelly feet or foot odour, rather than masking it.

Ingredients: Potassium Aluminium Sulphate,, Zinc Oxide, Zinc Undecylenate, Talc, Manuka Oil, Kawakawa Oil.


How to use Gran's Remedy for Smelly Feet and Footwear ?

Instruction given : Sprinkle a spoonful (Spoon included in the pottle) of powder in each shoe daily for seven consecutive days or until the powder is used up. I personally felt 1 spoon is a lot for my small size shoes... hence I cut off a bit but still make sure the insole is all properly covered with powder

Gran's Remedy for Smelly Feet and Footwear will leave your feet, shoes and socks odour-free for up to six months. 

I realised that the first time I sprinkle the powder into the shoes the night before the smelly scent is not completely gone by the next morning however the insole shoes which was a bit damp become drier. So I continue to sprinkle powder on the shoes for the next 3 to 4 days... and I think the smelly scent completely gone. 

During that period, you can actually wear the shoes directly with or without socks (as long as you do not have any open injury) and it actually help to remove foot odour  (if you have one). Just be careful of the white dust, make sure you are not walking on black carpet with your bare foot after wearing the foot (or you shall be leaving your white footprints behind lol).

I also put a test to my favourite flat! This might not be the best looking flat but it's the most comfortable flat I ever own seriously, I can walk hours in this! But problem with this flat is the insole material is not of breathable material hence my feet easily sweat in it which caused it stink after wearing it for a while.

For this shoes, I have to sprinkle the Gran's Remedy for Smelly Feet and Footwear up to a week like that before the shoes odour is completely gone. I guess how long you need to sprinkle on the shoes really depends on the seriousness of the shoes odour and you can continue to sprinkle the powder up to two weeks consecutively. Plus a treated footwear should stay odour-free for up to six month. 

Seriously Gran's Remedy for Smelly Feet and Footwear is totally my life saver to my smelly shoes, now I can wear it without worrying someone will notice my shoes odour! 

So you what if the product don't work on you? Well Gran's Remedy offers Money-Back-Guarantee policy because they confident that it will definitely works!

Gran's Remedy for Smelly Feet & Footwear (Original) is sold at RM84.30/50ml and currently they are offering 50% discount on all their range which includes Cooling & Scent Powder! They are also offering FREE shipping for orders within Malaysia (Sabah & Sarawak included).

Since it's a festive season, they are very kind to offer JESSYING readers an additional 10% off  of your entire bill when you purchase in http://www.gransremedy.com.my/. Once you key in "jesslee" in the coupon / voucher column before checking out, you will receive 10% off even on top of discounted items. How awesome is that!

Innisfree Beauty Picnic with Jeju Sparkling Mineral Line

I had an amazing time at Innisfree Beauty Picnic a while ago in Organica Lifestyle in Bangsar! Wanted to write about it earlier but was really busy so here I am finally posting this up! A few days before the event, I was told to wear my picnic outfit. Honestly I never been to a real picnic in Malaysia because weather is so damn hot and feel a bit insecure with our security. So I put on my self-imagine picnic #ootd to go to the event, wearing something casual and a hat thinking we will be having picnic under the sun! Ahh... thank god I arrived at the venue and it's fully air-conditioned!

Can you agree with me that this place was decorated perfectly to fit to the event theme? Lots of flowers, green grass, picnic basket.... ah for a moment  I thought I was in Jeju having a picnic! 

Love  the details in the decorations that they put up.. Good job guys!

Before we start with our beauty picnic with Innisfree, Johnny Nam, Brand Manager of Innisfree shared his short welcome note with us. He shared that Innisfree is often aspires to inspire consumers in ways to celebrate natural beauty while keeping it green. A beauty picnic is a form of inspiration of beauty lovers to meet and dedicate their time to appreciate the wonders of earth's produce.

Ms Purple Tap is Innisfree Assistant Training Manager shared that Innisfree products are made from Jeju Island, Korea natural resources. 

Ms Purple shared that in the olden days, Jeju pure sparkling mineral water is known as Gumyeongsu (life saving water), as it cured illness and saves lives. Its goodness has been told from generation to generation. 

Jeju sparkling mineral water is unique that it feels cold at the first touch as its temperature is lower than the body temperature. With the high carbonic content, it stimulates blood circulation and giving the skin a warm feeling. 

This new Innisfree new range is a daily hydration skincare range that uses sparkling mineral water as its main element. It promises your skin clear and moist from within while giving you an everyday hot spring spa-like sensation. 

Jeju Sparkling Mineral is made from Sanbangsan Mountain's hot spring water in Jeju Island. We were told that this is not just normal water as this pure sparkling mineral water was formed 800,000 years ago and is drawn from the aquifer 535 meters deep underground.

A very interesting fact that we were told is that this hot spring has an average temperature if 31 celcius and it's lower than general hot spring and this actually helps the carbon content of the water high. Carbonic acid from the hot spring has the ability to penetrate effortlessly into the skin due to its highly soluble state which increases the oxygen absorption ability of blood, muscles and skin. Innisfree Jeju Sparkling Mineral contains 3 types of carbonic acid and 13 types of hot spring minerals which convey active ingredients to the skin.

I have been to hot spring no wonder my skin was always soft and moist after soaking, probably due to the carbonic acid. Interesting to see Innisfree is using hot spring water mineral to make into a skincare range cos I never seen any brands has use this ingredients.

Innisfree Jeju Sparkling Mineral has a total of 6 products that ranges from cleansing powder, toner, essence, lotion, moisturiser (cream and lotion type) and mist. 

I wore my cute Innisfree headband and I'm ready to try out the products and share a little bit more on each range. So are you ready? Let's go!

Innisfree Jeju Sparkling Mineral Powder (RM8.00/30g)

This is a cleansing powder with Jeju sparkling mineral water. Revitalize skin with this easy-to-use  carbonic acid powder pack that clears and moisturises skin, giving skin relaxing spa-like treatment with carbonic acid hot spring water at the comfort of home. The fizzy bubbles form as the sparkling mineral powder dissolves into water, providing a sparkling massage effect.

It also contains Jeju tangerine peel extract that cleanses away any dirt left inside our pores, giving instant brightening effect after washing the face. 

How to use : Get a big bowl that can fit your face. Fill in the bowl with water with about 1.5 to 2 liter of water. Add in Sachet 1 (blue pack) ad wait until it dissolves. Add sachet 2 (white pack) and stir in the water to make fizzy bubbles. 

Soak your face into the water for 2-3 minutes or wash your face using both hands to feel the effect of sparkling massage. Rinse off your face with lukewarm water. 




Watch a short video I posted in my Instagram @jessyings on how I do this. It's so addictive... haha... and I just bought a new pack again to enjoy the sparkling massage effect. 

First time trying cleansing powder in this way, would say totally unique experience. I felt my skin is refreshing and softer after soaking into this. And really fun to do! 

Note : If your skin turn red or flushing after soaking don't be alarmed because your skin is having blood circulation.  It will calm down after a while.

Innisfree The Green Tea Seed Serum (RM90/80ml)

One of their best seller of all time, I have been wanting to try this! This water-like texture, the serum  is made of 100% fresh green tea instead of water, and able to boast a five-times-better moisturising power after use and increases the moisture content inside the skin up to 66% while decreasing the amount of dead skin cells by 76% - keeping your face effortlessly crystal; clean. The light green tea scent is really pleasant.

You have realised that I have put on serum first on my 2nd step of skincare instead of lotion. This is recommended by Innisfree because Green Tea Seed Serum will act as a booster. It will help to allow deep penetration and absorption of other skincare products into your skin.

Innisfree Jeju Sparkling Mineral Skin (RM79/200ml)

A deep hydration skin toner loaded with 88% sparkling mineral water that provides a powerful boosting effect. The ethanol-free toner (yay it's alcohol free!) is penetrated fast into the skin to smoothen the skin texture and to enhance the absorption of skincare products in the following steps. The acid balanced formula helps maintain a healthy skin by restoring the imbalanced pH after face wash. 

You can either use cotton to apply this or just use your hand to apply this. I prefer the latter method and to pat all goodness from the Mineral Skin onto my skin directly. As there is no alcohol in the product, it's really gentle to the skin. The texture is extremely light and it's water. And the faint tangerine scent is really refreshing. My skin feel soft but not sticky!

Innisfree Jeju Sparkling Mineral Essence (RM110/70g)

This contains 73.6% of sparkling mineral water. With the help of Micro Sparkling Technology, micro-sized carbonic acid bubbles that are smaller than pores are formulated to best fit onto the skin while facilitating penetration of active ingredients, making skin clean, clear and moist. Just like spa therapy, this delivers 5-in-1 intensive moisturising effect that helps with 5 skin concerns such as skin texture, balance uneven skin tone, keep skin firmness, strengthened the skin barrier and promotes blood circulation through massage.
This is the first time I see serum in foam texture but it still absorb nicely onto the skin when I apply it on my skin. Love how my skin feel soft and supple!

Innisfree Jeju Sparkling Mineral Cream (RM110/50g)

This Sparkling Mineral Cream is infused with 69.9% sparkling mineral water. The lightweight translucent fluid texture absorbs fast into the skin to form double moisture layer that remains all day long. The skin-friendly ceramide is stabilized in a fluid form, building a protective film to strengthen the moisture barrier on skin.

To those who has oily or combination skin, you can use Mineral Lotion instead which is lighter than the cream. Personally I felt the cream texture is really light and easy to absorb.

Innisfree Sparkling Mineral Mist (RM52/80ml)

To those who are looking for instant and intense hydration, you can try Sparkling Mineral Mist which has 90% sparkling mineral water. It resolves dryness while supplying minerals to keep skin moisturized anytime and anywhere. 

Love how the mist texture is really fine and absorb onto the skin nicely providing a quick moisturising boost. Although this mist has oil extracted from coconut as one of the ingredients to help to retain moisture on skin, it does not leave the skin oily after spraying the mist.

Tips of spraying mist, make sure you spray at 20cm away from the skin while keeping your eyes  and mouth close..haha see I forgot to close mine and tasted some of the mist.. 

Innisfree Long Wear Cushion SPF50+/PA+++ (RM80/15g) . Refill selling at RM45

Innisfree Long Wear Cushion SPF50+/PA+++ helps to reduce the appearance of pores, discolorations, and imperfections and ensures a perfectly flawless complexion every time. The Long-wear Complex containing Jeju volcanic powder delivers flawless coverage with this long-wearing effect. Whether oily, dry or combination, "Sebum control" Jeju volcanic powder will intuitively adjust to meet and address your skin concerns for makeup that wears better, longer, and true. 

Side by side comparison

I love how Innisfree Long Wear Cushion instantly enhanced my skin complexion with the effect of reducing the appearance of pores, discolorations, and imperfections.

Tadaa my after look from trying out their range!
