Melvita Nectar De Miels rescue dry & sensitive skin with Thyme honey!

Melvita launched Nectar de Miels bodycare a while ago. Sorry I have been really busy and I wish I could share with you guys sooner on this.

Being a fan of Melvita, I can't help to contains my excitement when they launched this new range that is enriched with organic Thyme Honey because they said this will rescue even the driest and most sensitive skin!

Thyme flowers are rich in nectar and loved by bees of the Mediterranean Basin. The Romans would use it to purify the air in their houses while during Middle Ages, a few spring of thyme would be slipped under the pillows to chase away nightmares and soothe troubled sleep. 

Melvita's organic thyme comes from the La Sierra de Cebollera nature reserve in Spain. It's harvested by a family of beekeepers who have looked after almost 4,000 hives there for the past three generations. This natural enclave, surrounded by mountains, guarantees an organic honey of the highest quality.

Following the research done by Melvita, they found that Thyme flowers honey was able to acts like a natural "dressing" with an instant soothing effect to our skin. It has also reveal an amazing synergic effect when it's combined with acacia and orange blossom honeys in the NEW Nectar de Miels range to HEAL and RESCUE very dry & sensitive skin.

Melvita Nectar De Miels range comes with 3 products ; Hand  cream, Body Balm and Body Milk Lotion.

This exceptional nourishing and repairing range has 3 main ingredients mainly ;

Patents Complex of Three Organic Honeys - thyme, orange blossom and acacia honey which protects, repairs and revitalizes the skin

Soline - an active ingredients derived from sunflower oil, which softens the skin, helps prevent moisture loss and strengthened the skin's barrier function

Alpha Bisabolol - derived from candeia, which immediately soothes the skin

With me I have the comforting balm & milk lotion for review ; 

Melvita Comforting Balm  - RM138 / 175ml

Melvita Creamy Milk - RM115 / 200ml

Both this body lotion has floral sweet honey scent because it is enriched with organic thyme honey.

 that is a little empowering at the first sniff for me but it soon goes away after a while. Soon after that I got used to the scent. I have very dry skin to start off and some times my leg skin is flaky... so I have to constantly have to apply body moisturiser. 

The Comforting Creamy Milk is lighter in texture compared to Comforting Balm which is more rich, smooth and creamy. Both leaves my skin incredibly soft after massaging it into my skin and most importantly it does not leave greasy/sticky feeling behind. Personally I prefer to apply Creamy Body Milk in the morning and Comforting Balm at nigh because it is super moisturizing and it leave my skin feeling soft & supple till next morning although I sleep in my in air-conditioning room. For rough skin areas like elbow, knee and heel, I would suggest to apply comforting balm and after that cover with long sleeve/pants or put on socks for better result. Highly recommending it to people with dry & sensitive skin! 

It think it also heals my skin scratches (I got from playing with my dog) faster by soothing, moisturizing and healing my skin. Highly recommended for people with dry skin as it is a concentrate of nutrition for skin! 

And if you are someone who is really into organic & natural skincare and body care, this is definitely a brand you have to try because Melvita has Ecocert which means at least 95% of their total ingredients are from natural origins, and at least 95% if the total plant-based ingredients are organic while at least 10% of the total ingredients are from organic farming.

Melvita Nectar De Miels range is already available for sale at Melvita Boutiques (1 Mont Kiara, 1 Utama and Mid Valley) or online at

Review : Nuvit Deer Placenta Softgel rewind my ageing clock!

I posted a picture of myself at a wedding dinner on my Instagram & Facebook over the weekends because I want to "show off" my beautiful vintage earring. A friend commented why your skin looks so smooth... so here I'm to reveal the reasons why skin are looking glowing nowadays!

I was given a box of Nuvit Deer Placenta Plus Softgel to try by Y.S.P Industries one of the leading pharmaceutical companies in Malaysia.  Yes you read it correctly it's placenta from deer.

In case you are wondering, no deer is killed during the extraction of the placenta as the placenta was extracted when deer gave birth.

Do you know the difference between collagen and placenta?

Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body. It is commonly found in the bones, muscles and skin that provides structural support, strength and a degree of elasticity. However, Collagen production declines with age and also others environment factors such as UV light. Thus, collagen supplement has been introduced to restore the collagen in our body. Although there are many skincare products that containing collagen but collagen molecules themselves are too big to be absorbed through the skin. They are most likely attributable to their moisturizing effects, but they do not strengthen the skin or directly increase collagen concentration in the skin. 

On the other hand, Placenta contains placental protein, Insulin-like Growth Factor-1(IGF-1), superoxide dismutases(SOD), hyaluronic acid, fibroblast growth factor(FGF), epithelial growth factor (EGF), senescent cell activating factors (SCAFs) and cytokines. These are the essential protein and cells that our body needed to rejuvenate and regenerate. Placenta protein has been proven to be twice as active as glutathione for skin whitening function. IGF-1 is one of the growth factor that promotes cell growth and development. FGF, EGF, and SCAFs are also growth factors that helps to activate the renewal of aged cels and stimulate the growth of fibroblasts and epidermis within the skin. SOD is an important antioxidant to protect the cells against superoxide activity. Hydraluronic acid is an excellent moisturizer. Cytokines found in placenta can also improve blood circulation and enhance immune function. 

Overall, Placenta contains much more essential active cells that aid in slowing down aging process and stimulate rejuvenation of our body. Instead, collagen also helps to replenish the amount of collagen in the body and it works to improve skin (externally) only. So if you want a more effective supplement to help to slow down aging process and works to improve internal body to external skin (that inner glow) , it's definitely better to go for placenta. 

Often I heard once you stop consuming collagen, it has adverse side effect and your skin go back to the original look and become dull and dry. Not sure how true, can anyone share if this is real?

Nuvit Deer Placenta Plus Softgel is extracted from the deer in New Zealand. Deer Placenta has been widely accepted as the premier source of placenta because it's considered to be higher order animal. It resembles human placenta very closely due to its biocompatibility with human and provokes no allergies reaction.

Nuvit Deer Placenta Plus Softgel use the concept of cell therapy to renew the old and degenerated cells in human body. Studies have confirmed that live or freeze-dried cells in placenta contain therapeutic agents that can find their way to the weak or damages cells or organs, thus initiating the repairing work. Cell therapy is one of the safest and most effective ways proven by many scientists to : -

  • slow down ageing process
  • reverse degenerate disease
  • increase vitality 
  • increase stamina improve general health 
  • enhance sexual function. 
Nuvit Deer Placenta Plus Soft Softgel is extracted using the latest advanced cell extraction and freeze-drying technology to ensure freshness and efficacy of the extract. The whole manufacturing process has followed strict Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) to ensure the safety and goodness quality of the essence. 

2,000 mg of New Zealand deer placenta is extracted which then undergoes 10:1 extraction ratio and is condensed into a standardized, bioactive 200mg deer placenta extract

On top of that Nuvit Deer Placenta Plus Softgel also consists of 5 natural and wellness ingredients which are rich in antioxidant, effective in protecting cells from radical damage. The ingredients are as follows :-
  • 60mg soy lecithin : gives excellent source of choline which may aid in memory ad cognitive function, cardiovascular health and liver function.
  • 50mg grape seed extract : reduce inflammation and improving cholesterol and triglyceride metabolism
  • 40mg tomato extract : provides antioxidant that protects cells from free radicals damages
  • 40mg marigold extract : able to protect eyes by absorbing harmful blue light, reducing glare as well as reduce progression of age-related macular degeneration
  • 285mg mixed tocotrienol : natural super antioxidant with anti-ageing properties. Helps to protect skin from damage and ageing.

To be honest this is my first time trying out placenta supplement and I was really skeptical until I was convinced about the benefits which I have shared above. I was relief to find out no deer has been killed during the placenta extraction. 

Each box of Nuvit Deer Placenta Plus Softgel consists 42 softgels. There are a total of 7 strips with 6 softgels sealed safely in each strip.

Ingredients are clearly written behind each strip
  • 200mg deer placenta extract
  • 60mg soy lecithin 
  • 50mg grape seed extract 
  • 40mg tomato extract 
  • 40mg marigold extract 
  • 285mg mixed tocotrienol
This is how Nuvit Deer Placenta Softgel looks like. It has no scent as the ingredients are locked in the softgel. This softgel must be taken with water where you can swallow it with water.

I been taking this daily after breakfast since early April 2016 and finally I finished it mid May.

The first thing I realised is my skin actually glows and the thing is I haven't change my skincare routine since I started consuming Nuvit Deer Placenta Softgel. I haven't see such a glow from my face for very long I think must be this supplement that gives me this glow from within.

And I also realised my skin pores size has reduced and skin texture appears smoother! 

Besides that I find that my mood swing & menstrual pain has reduced probably because this Nuvit Deer Placenta helps to balance up my hormones in my body lah.... 

I know placenta is not a common health supplement, but to me this is really effective and worth to try looking at the results. With our busy and and stressful life in city, definitely we will face premature ageing due to a lot of factors such as air pollution, radiation from sunlight, cigarette smoking (we suffer as 2nd hand smokers most of the time!) and not enough of sleep. 

In order to prevent / rewind my ageing clock, I'm willing to try placenta to renew and regenerate the cells in my body because I know it's one of the safest and most effective ways proven by many scientists to slow down the ageing process. Besides it also helps to reverse degenerative disease, increase vitality and stamina, improve general health and enhance sexual function.

THREE Cosmetics opened their first outlet in Malaysia in Pavilion Shopping Mall, Kuala Lumpur! THREE is also an organic beauty brand from Japan where all their organic ingredients certified by Ecocert. They used essential oils and other plant-based ingredients on their products.  In fact I have actually dropped by their counter back in Isetan Shinjuku Tokyo to try their base makeup. Honestly their products are not cheap to start with, after all it's a Japanese organic brand that has Ecocert.

Since they are in Malaysia , I dropped by over the weekend to check out their THREE Sakuraism 2016 Spring Limited Edition Collection in Pavilion KL. The first thing that caught my eyes was the blusher! 


"THREE Sakuraism 2016 Season Collection" is launched accordance with the flowering of the cherry blossoms of the Japanese archipelago, and blossomed from towards the south. 

Haven't done this for some time, well I'm going to share the swatch of THREE Sakuraism 2016 Spring Collection which I took with my mobile phone. Hope the quality justifying the colours :) If you see later all the names in their collect some sort use the word Sakura or Sakuraim which this range being inspired.

S02 Sakuraism Blink - Chic haze is to brighten up the look, sophistication of Grayish Coral.

These are easy to spread glossy eyeshadow. It's pigmented but can be build if you want to create intensity like the colour the model had.

S02 Sakuraism Spirit - And sunrise sky dyed in vivid, the water surface of the petals Sensual pink

S03 Sakuraism Scent - As melt together is the setting sun and the cherry tree, milky purple mystique has been pulled out

These lipgloss colours are really pretty and  my favourite would be Sakuraism Spirit because it has the cherry sakura colours follow by Sakuraism Scent. It's quite sheer but can be build  by layering. Glossy finishing and not sticky!

THREE Cheeky Chic Blush priced at RM157

Decorate the cheek with good color and clarity of the balance, powder cheek that were transferred to color the feelings of spring. In would likely as smooth texture melts and touch, soft cheeks, and to the upper respiratory to narrate the arrival of spring.

 THREE Nail Polish for Sakuraism Collection 2016 priced at RM95

Dance and spring of view of the cherry blossoms that spread to the fingertips While changing the impression in various scenes, representing the figure of a cherry tree burning in the hearts of people the moment, the nuances full of nail polish.

S03 Dancing with Petals - The image of a petal that run around freely in the spring, Airy cherry shower.

S04 In the Arms of Night - Were cut views of Hanafubuki spread in the night sky, brilliant fluttering cherry black.

Although this nail polish dry up pretty fast and colours like Dancing with Petals are pretty but this is really expensive which I don't think can justifying the price! What do you think?

Besides makeup products, there are bodycare under this THREE Sakuraism Season 2016 Collection such as :-
Sakuraism Aroma Skin Soap - RM210
Sakuraism Aroma Bath Serum - RM314 
Sakuraism Aroma Hand Cream - RM157

I'm actually quite shock at the pricing of the soap & bath serum...although it's organic and probably smells good because of Sakura flower, I wonder what so unique what this that justify the price. 

Which are your favourite product you want to try from this THREE Sakuraism Season 2016 Collection ? 

For me I would like to  Sakuraism Spirit lip gloss, Sakuraism Rising blusher, Dancing with the petals nail polish and Sakuraism Aroma Bath Serum ( I haven't try any product that carry the name bath serum.... sounds very moisturising like that!)

Review : Mary Kay MelaCEP Plus+™ Luminous System

Mary Kay launches the new MelaCEP Plus+™ Luminous System, a complete skin care line that addresses a whole new level of luminosity which targets 5 key benefits including even-looking skin tone, hydration, brightness, translucency and purity. In another word, this is a brightening skincare range. Thanks Mary Kay for sending the whole range of products for me to try out! 

The new MelaCEP Plus+™ Luminous System also reduces dark spots and helps protect skin against further damage from the sun and other environmental stresses. The MelaCEP Plus+™ Luminous System has been extensively tested and offers the optimal combination of scientific innovation and the power of nature to target the multiple causes for uneven skin tone. And it's suitable for dry, normal, oily and combination skin types.

At the heart of the system is the MelaCEP Plus+™ Luminous Complex, a patent-pending blend of key botanical ingredients which targets melanin to potentially help reduce the appearance of dark spots. 

 Mary Kay MelaCEP Plus+™ Luminous System contains the key ingredients of: 

  • Edelweiss extract - has been shown to target melanin, helping diminish discoloration on the skin. 
  • Algae extract - targets melanin and helps reduce the appearance of discoloration on the skin’s surface. 
  • Vegetable amino acids: shown to significantly improve the brightness of skin**, improve the overall evenness of skin tone** and reduce the visible contrast of dark spots on the skin** so they’re less noticeable. 
  • Shiitake mushroom extract: Certain mushrooms, like shiitake, contain a specific enzyme known for their purification properties. In fact, the paper industry has utilized the discovery of this enzyme from mushrooms to purify the color from tree bark in order to make white paper. (available only in Cleanser, Freshener, Mask and Ultimate Cream) 
Although Mary Kay is an American skincare brand but these range seems to be made in Korea, no wonder it is stated specifically formulated for and tested on Asian skin. 

Mary Kay MelaCEP Plus+™ Luminous System Foaming Cleanser – RM129/100ml

This is gentle, purifying foam looked milky. The purifying foam effectively lifts away impurities without stripping skin. Formulated with the exclusive MelaCEP Plus+ Luminous Complex, it brightens dull skin and improves the look of uneven skin.
It's pretty creamy and you need lather it with water to create foam. It has mild botanical scent.

Put a small amount of Foaming Cleanser in the hand and mix with warm water to create foam. Then apply the Foaming Cleanser to the face and neck and wash in circular motion ( avoiding eye area) before rinsing with water.

Mary Kay MelaCEP Plus+™ Luminous System Freshener – RM129/100ml

This brightening, softening lotion formulated with the exclusive MelaCEP Plus+ Luminous Complex promises to leave skin supple and radiant. 

As you can see in the picture, the texture of the freshener (i.e lotion) is really watery.

Although the instruction was to use cotton pad, I personally prefer to pour on my palm and pat into my skin. The lotion absorb almost immediately onto my skin without feeling greasy. Love my skin feel softer and supple after patting!

Mary Kay MelaCEP Plus+™ Luminous System Mask (RM169/85g)

Refines the skin surface for a more luminous complexion, providing overall brightening while leaving skin softer, smoother and more radiant.
Creamy white texture. Applied on clean & dry skin after face wash. 

I applied a medium layer of mask all over my face and neck too. Leave it for a minimum of 10-15 minutes before rinsing. (Note that the mask will not be completely dry). Recommended to use 2-3 times a week.

Usually I like to use after I steam my face with my favourite Panasonic Face Steamer and scrubbing for a optimum result. I can see my face look brighter and supple. Surprisingly because more brightening/whitening mask is quite drying!

Mary Kay MelaCEP Plus+ Luminous System Serum - RM350/30ml

This MelaCEP Plus+™ Ultimate Serum is the star product because it contains Maritime pine and white birch extracts, to target melanin, and Hexylresorcinol which targets glutathione and the accumulation of pigment on the skin’s surface. Glutathione is vital to the skin’s purification process.

As we age, our body’s natural production of glutathione starts to decrease while stress and environmental pollutants also can deplete its levels. In addition, glutathione can impact melanocytes, which are responsible for melanin that can appear on the skin. With that it helps to diminishes the appearance of dark spots, improved the appearance of skin discolouration and leaves skin looking more even-toned.

The texture of the serum is quite gel-lish and it absorbs pretty fast after I use freshener. I use one pump and applied evenly all over my face. This is the kinda of my favourite serum texture!

Mary Kay MelaCEP Plus+ Luminous System Ultimate Cream - RM180/30ml

This Ultimate Cream promises to deliver 24-hour moisturization when used day and night, leaving the skin looking luminous and even-toned.

Out of all these products above, this has the strongest botanical scent. Although it looks thick and creamy, it absorbs into my skin nicely after I warm my palm and massage it in. And you can feel there is a thin veil on top of the skin protecting the loss of moisture in the skin. Very smooth and hydrated after application!

Although it's a cream, it also suitable to apply during the day time especially during hot season like this where our skin need to be hydrated properly.

Sorry, I wish I could take a better picture to show a proper comparison but nowadays weather is so crazy hot and next moment it's raining (it's hard to go get same lighting at the same spot and before I even start taking picture, I already drenched with my sweat!) but I do see my skin colour (on right side) looks more even, brighter, translucent and feel hydrated!

We all have the perception that brightening/whitening products are usually drying to the skin but this Mary Kay MelaCEP Plus+ Luminous System has been quite moisturizing for me. Despite me siting in an air-conditioning room all day long (thanks to the weather), this range seems to hydrate my skin pretty well , in fact skin feel soft and smooth each time I finish applying the products! It's quite gentle and no irritation during my trial period for last few weeks! And out of all the products I tried, I really like the serum, mask and cream! 

And if you been following me on Instagram (Follow @jessyings) /Facebook (like Jessying), you might know that I just came back from Bali last week! Gosh the weather is so much hotter & humid there compare to Malaysia!! And lucky I brought this range along to use , which I think it helps to keep my skin looking luminous, even and hydrated! Unfortunately I think my pigmentation has not been lighten (well it has been there as long as I can remembered) so I think I need to continuous use this properly a little bit longer to see result? Well I will monitor if it gets lighten.. and tell you guys if it does! 

Mary Kay MelaCEP Plus+™ Luminous System is available exclusively through your Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultant from April 2016. To locate a consultant, call 03-7711 7500 or visit
