SK-II Facial Treatment Essence Limited Edition Inspired by Suminagashi

 
In this coming Christmas season, SK-II is revealing limited edition of Facial Treatment Essence bottle beautifully crafted design inspired by traditional Japanese marbling, Suminagashi, or “floating ink” in Japanese. I love the artsy designed on the bottle! 

The art of Suminagashi was chosen for its powerful philosophy which states that there is no wrong drop; each dot and swirl of colour come together to create a unique art piece.

Suminagashi (墨 流 し) or "floating ink" is the process of marbling plain paper with water and ink to transform it into something vibrant and colorful. And I felt this Suminagashi is pretty similar to Turkish marbling.

Our team really had fun expressing our art sense through Suminagashi art and our masterpiece was selected by Suminagashi Master Shuhei Goto from Japan to be the piece of art that day :P  

The art of Suminagasi serves as a reminder of one’s power to paint their own path, in the same way that the simple ink and water of Suminagashi art can be transformed into a beautiful masterpiece, one drop at a time.

The SK-II Facial Treatment Essence Limited Edition is available in red, blue and green Suminagashi-inspired designs for a limited time only at all SK-II counters across Malaysia and is only sold as part of the festive sets and not available as individual bottles.

Tips to use : Besides using SK-II Facial Treatment Essence (pour a 50 cent size on cotton pad) to keep the skin moisture, it can be used as base just before applying makeup and mask to replenish lost moisture. 

Below are some of the SK-II Facial Treatment Essence Limited Edition sets available now in all SK-II counters in Malaysia, this would be the perfect choice for Christmas gift for those who are using SK-II products :) Afterall it's less than a month from Christmas! 11

My K-Beauty haul from Koreanmall

I love shopping and everyone knows about it!! 

Nowadays, I prefer to shop at online store because it’s so convenient, lots of time/cost saving (save my petrol, parking and toll fee!) and I can actually get better deals than to shop in offline stores. 

What if I tell you today, you do not need to fly all the way to Korea and you can enjoy Korean online shopping at the comfort of your own house? http://koreanmall.com/app/ is the 1st Korean Global e-Shopping mall which is selling products made in Korea and more.

Koreanmall offers products such as fashion, beauty, food, baby/toddler, home gardens, sports and not forgetting K-pop directly from Korea. I love that there are varieties of category of products and I haven’t seen an e-commerce site that sells Food and K-Pop sections directly from Korea! So, basically the product we see in K-dramas, we can get directly from Korea... No need to wait for them to be launched in Malaysia!

This is the Top 10 Best Seller Beauty Products in Koreanmall!


No matter where you are, Koreanmall offers International Shipping from South Korea. Just need to chill at home and wait for your parcel after you made your purchase from Koreanmall :)

You do not need to worry about the shipping fee when you purchase from Koreanmall because all orders over $49 will be shipped right to your door. Absolutely free using Economy airmail! Yay more reasons to shop and enjoy the free shipping!

While it’s convenient to shopping online, there are times we are not satisfied with the products we receive. And I appreciate that Koreanmall offers Free & Easy return policy on all orders of $49 or more (exclude the shipping fee) within (14) days of the date you receive the item.

I feel so confident shopping on Koreanmall because it pledges to sell Korean products that are Korean Genuine items. And if you find out the products to be unauthentic, Koreanmall will refund you 200% of the price you pay. So rest assured that Korean products in KoreanMall are made in Korea, designed by Korea and Korean brands. 

With all these promises, I feel so much more secured and confident shopping from Koreanmall!

Plus, there are a lot of different payment methods available on Koreanmall for the convenience of shoppers!

This is my parcel from Koreanmall. The delivery was pretty fast and smooth. My purchase was properly packed in a box and sealed securely before it arrived at my doorstep.

Can you guess what I have purchased from Koreanmall?

I like how Koreanmall took extra effort to wrap my items individually with bubble wraps to protect the products.

On top of that, Koreanmall also stuffed the box with air pack to make sure shaking/impact is minimised during delivery.

The products were so securely packed with bubble wraps. I need to use scissor to open it! Jeng, jeng, jeng.... 

Guess what I purchased from Koreanmall.....

 My Korean beauty online shopping from Koreanmall!

Woohoo... This is my early Christmas gift for myself!

Trying Sulwhasoo Clarifying Mask EX 

Been wanting to try this peel-off mask forever! Finally, I got this from Koreanmall! Love the herbalish smells from mask which has the benefits to purify, clarify dull and devitalized problem skin. 

Just peel off from top to bottom after 20-30 minutes when the mask dries. Love how my skin felt so much smoother, brighter and somehow slightly hydrated after used. Highly recommending this!

 Laneige Water Bank Ultra Moisture Cream 

This is a new product from Laneige which I have not tried before. I got this because I read that this ultra moisture cream is suitable for winter. And since I’m planning for my winter trip at end of the year, it’s a good time to pick this to try out!

The texture is thick & buttery! I can feel the instant hydration treatment when I tried it on. Interestingly not only this can be used as a face moisturer, it also works as a night mask, hair essence, elbow care, makeup retouch, massage cream and makeup base to give radiance to the skin as well.

Laneige Perfect Renew Regenerator Serum 

This is a new product from Laneige which promises to re-new, re-energize and re-generate our skin by making sure it’s moisture, smooth and glowing. Although this is an oil essence serum, the texture is pretty lightweight and absorb quickly into the skin leaving it feeling soft almost immediately.

 
 Laneige MultiBerry Yogurt Repair Pack 

I love anything about berry! Hence, I picked up this high-concentration of multi berry extract yogurt pack from Laneige to try! Not only my skin smells sweeter after the mask, it also felt more hydrated and smoother.

Son & Park Beauty Gel 

My friend, Cynthia, recommended this brand. This is a skincare and makeup booster all-in-one! The moisture gel promises to make your skin texture smooth, all thanks to the collagen capsules containing non-sticky, refreshing moisturizing oxygen gel and rose oil. I use this as my makeup base before applying my foundation, it seems to make my foundation stays longer and hydrated.

 Sulwhasoo Perfecting Cushion Brightening SPF50+/PA+++ 

I have been wanting to try this BB cushion ever since I read the high raved review made by Parisb, she said that this product makes her love cushion foundation! Got to agree that this lightweight cushion foundation goes beyond providing long-lasting coverage with a flawlessly satin, soft matte finish. 

Honestly, I am very happy with my purchase from Koreanmall. My K-Beauty products were reasonably priced and they arrived very fast in good condition directly from South Korea. I love the free international delivery for purchase over $49.

Review of Olay Regenerist Miracle Duo range after 4 weeks!

It’s every women dream to look beautiful.

Be it your dream V-shape face, big eyes, sharp nose, luscious lips or attractive hair, I’m sure all of us yearn to look younger than our age. Well perhaps that’s the reason they said a woman’s age is a secret. And often when someone compliment us that “Hey you look younger than your age, what’s your secret?”. Well you can’t help but show a beaming smile to the person and say “Awww.... thank you, I shall buy you a meal!” Sounds familiar? 

I’m not sure about you but I stand inches away from the mirror to closely examine my face every now and then. Deep inside I was asking myself, where does this pigmentation, dark spots or wrinkles come from? Well I have tried all my life to take care of my skin so that I don’t age too fast. After all, the first thing a person sees when they meet you is your face (i.e skin). I’m so thankful for the creator of makeup because it makes me looks beautiful. There is a lot of things that can be concealed under makeup... Dark spots, pigmentation, uneven skin tones, dark eye circles etc, but do you realise you can never hide your wrinkles or lines? And wrinkles are a tell-tale sign of aging.

With the amount of pollution we face today, we are actually guilty of our skin’s aging process. We cannot stop the aging process but we can slow it down a little bit for sure. The natural aging process is called intrinsic aging, while the aging process caused by external factors is called extrinsic aging. Both show up visibly with the same results, but extrinsic aging is something we can fight against.

We all know we cannot stop our skin from aging but we can slow down the process, at least to reduce the signs of aging with the right anti-aging skincare. The new Olay Regenerist skincare range promises to renew from within, plumping surface cells for a dramatic transformation without the need for fillers.

In this Regenerist Miracle Duo range, there are a total of three products namely; Regenerist Miracle Boost Youth Pre-Essence, Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Day Cream and Regenerist Mirco-Sculpting Night Cream.


Honestly I haven’t been using Olay products for the longest time, I think the last time I was using them was during high school because it’s fairly affordable and my mum was using it. Over the years, Olay has improved their formulation and packaging and here I’m trying out this new Regenerist Miracle Duo range that an anti-aging skincare range that hydrates and renews to firm and lift, helping to retain skin’s youthful surface contours. In addition, they are fragrance free as well! Anyway, I have tried it for 4 weeks, so I’m going to share my thoughts here with you girls!


Olay Regenerist Miracle Boost Youth Pre-Essence (RM79.90/40ml) is designed to boost the penetration of anti-aging actives of your moisturizer 2 times more to increase skin cell metabolism and renewal for stunning, youthful skin that looks up to 10 years younger.

Olay Scientists and their research partners have combined the most advanced cellular bioenergetics tools with genomic, proteomic, and human skin modelling to identify anti-aging ingredients that can accelerate anti-aging results for faster, more noticeable benefits :- 

  • Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) : Boosts surface cell metabolism and renewal, Reduces wrinkles. 
  • Amino Peptides  (Pro-Collagen molecules): Helps repair skin, Reduces wrinkles & Firms
  • Lys’lastine (natural extract of Dill seeds): Enhances Skin elasticity 
  • OliveM  (Antioxidant from Olive Extract): Improves penetration of anti-aging ingredients and helps protect skin from oxidative damage*

Ingredient list : Water, Niacinamide, Glycerin, Butylene Glycol, Hexylene Glycol, Dimethicone, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, PEG-32, Phenoxyethanol, Benzyl Alcohol, Sodium Hydroxide, Methylparaben, Dimethiconol, Disodium EDTA, Inositol, Isopropyl Isostearate, Sodium Metabisulfite, Tocopheryl Acetate, PEG-100 Stearate, Fragrance, Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate, Morus Alba Root Extract, Glyceryl Acrylate/Acrylic Acid Copolymer, PVM/MA Copolymer, Sodium PEG-7 Olive Oil Carboxylate, Lilium Candidum Flower Extract, Palmitoyl Pentapeptide-4, Lonicera Japonica (Honeysuckle) Flower Extract.

 Its unique auto-dropper packaging ensures the exact and right amount of the pre-essence is delivered in every single application. For ideal results, apply two-pump dosage per use. 

Apply product twice a day after toner, and before serum and moisturiser. Just un-screw the cap to automatically draw product into the dropper. Press the pump button to dispense the pre-essence.

The texture is gelish watery and easily absorbable. I did a skin moisture test with this alone and the result is amazing; my skin moisture jumps from 23.2% to 85.5%! I really like this product because my skin does not feel sticky, but instead very soft and supple.

Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream (RM99.90/50g) is a day cream. It’s formulated with the most concentrated Amino-Peptide Complex and Hydra-Firming Complex to :- 
  • Renew skin’s surface layers for smooth texture and refined pores 
  • Reduces lines and wrinkles with moisturisation 
  • Exfoliates for smooth skin 
  • Hydrates to help plump and firm skin
Ingredient list : Water, Glycerin, Isohexadecane, Niacinamide, Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate, Isopropyl Isostearate, Nylon-12, Dimethicone, Panthenol, Stearyl Alcohol, Polyethylene, Cetyl Alcohol, Behenyl Alcohol, Titanium Dioxide, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Sodium Acrylates Copolymer, Benzyl Alcohol, Tocopheryl Acetate, Mica, Methylparaben, Allantoin, Ethylparaben, Dimethiconol, Polyacrylamide, Fragrance, PEG-100 Stearate, Propylparaben, Cetearyl Alcohol, Cetearyl Glucoside, Sodium Hyaluronate, Stearic Acid, C13-14 Isoparaffin, Disodium EDTA, Butylene Glycol, Citric Acid, Sodium PEG-7 Olive Oil Carboxylate, C12-13 Pareth-3, Laureth-7 , Peucedanum Graveolens (Dill) Extract, Sodium Hydoxide, Propylene Glycol, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Xanthan Gum, Imidazolidinyl Urea, Palmitoyl Pentapeptide-4


Although it looks creamy, but I assure you it is actually not the case. The texture is gelish and absorbs fairly fast into my dry skin once I massage it in. 

Using your fingertips, massage a small amount on the face and neck in an upward circular motion, focusing on areas like the brow and jaw line, which need more support (i.e lifting). My face feel amazing smooth and plump at this point. Even after spending several hours alternating between being outdoors and in an air conditioned room, my skin still feels moist without feeling sticky.
For night time, I used Olay Regenerist Mirco-Sculpting Night Cream (RM99.90/50g). It’s said to plump & firm skin, provide smooth & supple skin texture and enhance radiance. The cream is in transparent milky colour and texture is creamy gel-like. It’s a little heavier than the day cream. My skin feels soft, smooth and supple after applying this. As the texture is a little bit heavy, you do not have to apply a lot, yet my face feel so fresh and hydrated the next morning! More savings yay!

So what I do every night is to have a mini pampering massage of few minutes for myself. I take a small portion from the jar and warm up using my palm before applying to my entire face. Stroke from your forehead, down your cheeks and over to your neck. After a few minutes of gentle stroking, I use gentle pressing method to enhance absorption of product more efficiently. And please don’t forget to do the same to your neck because it’s the first sign of aging that often people neglected. 

Massages like this help to improve blood circulation and lymph circulation, which can enhance the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to cells. This makes the cells healthier and more efficient. Remember do not use excessive pressure or pull on your skin, soft, gentle movements are sufficient!
After using for 4 weeks of using Olay Regenerist Miracle Duo range, I’m pretty impressed with it. My skin looks more radiant, soft, plump and smooth and that’s the sign of healthy skin right? I think the healthier living lifestyle that I’m trying to adopt contributed to all this as well. I try to sleep earlier nowadays, have less oily & spicy food and have a mini walk to the lake nearby my house with my dog while playing Pokemon. 

Well I feel as we aged, we need to take care extra effort to look good inside out. And feeling beautiful is really powerful because it gives positive vibes to ourselves and people around us. I understand that as a woman living in this era, there are a lot of obstacles and pressure we are facing every day. But the fact that we feel beautiful is a proof that we have a lot of confidence in ourselves. Let’s forget how people are going to judge us because each of us has our own true beauty hidden within all of us. We are unique and there is no one else who will looks exactly like us. Be beautiful people <3 

Olay Regenerist Miracle Duo range new packaging is available in major pharmacies such as Watsons, Guardian and Caring starting October 2016.

My birthday wishlist from Simple Be Fashion.

With my birthday just a week from now, I'm actually hunting for a birthday gift for myself. Every year I will go and get a new dress to wear on my birthday. However the challenge to look for "the dress" is real especially in Malaysia where not much fashion brands that offer size for those has little bit more curves. Even if there are, the designs are limited and looks too old fashioned. I just can't get it... why can't plus size fashion looks trendy and fashionable as well. Life is too short for us to looks ugly and unapologetic for who we are.

And I stumbled into Simply Be Fashion, a fashion site that wants to inspire, influence and connect real women in a real world who simply want to be themselves. They provide perfect-fitting clothes from UK8 to UK38. 

Simply Be Fashion offers different range of fashion piece from clothing, shoes, lingerie, beauty & swimwear. For clothing category, they have dresses, tops, shirts, tunics, coats, jackets, jeans, legging, trousers, shorts, skirts, playsuits, jumpsuits, sport wear, swimwear, lingerie and etc ..from sizes 12 - 32 from the latest season's trends to everyday essentials. Price wise is pretty affordable, it starts from £4 (RM20) to £300 (RM1200) for in house & designer brands.

Here are some of the AW 2016 going out dresses that I like and my wishlist for my birthday this year! 


Red Magiscuplt Cut Out Detail Bodycon Dress

Love the cut out detailing!!! Seems like the perfect birthday dress for me! Featuring flattering cut out detail at the top and MAGISCULPT panelling, this bodycon dress will create the perfect silhouette.  Keep this look simple and let the dress do the talking.

Cape Shift Dress

I have been looking for cape dress forever! This is the must-have style statement this AW16 fashion trends. Not only the cape helps to cover the arms but it looks as if we are wearing coat over the dress.

Bardot Prom Dress

I always fancy off shoulder/wide V shape top or dress as it gives the illusion of a narrow shoulders hence slimmer upper body. With this pair of dress, it's easy pair with your favourite heels and clutch bag for a classy going out look.

Mesh Top Dress

A simple yet a must own dress for all the girls because of the versatility. This dress can take us from day to night by changing flats for platform heels. 

Chi Chi Lace Midi Prom Dress With Bardot Neck

Anything lace is LOVE! This super-glam dress with embroidery detailing lines on the bust and skirt gives extra sophisticated look. I love this deep red colour and would definitely flatter our Asian skin!

Embellished Maxi Dress

With Christmas coming soon in 2 months time, where they will be a lot of year end party to attend. I can't help notice this gorgeous beaded maxi dress. 

Cut Out Collar Shirt Dress

The cut out at the collar is unique and I love the print here! Pair with leggings and boots for a western cowboy girl inspired look.
