Murad launched Retinal ReSculpt™ Overnight Treatment - transformative results with just 2 weeks use!


Have you been trying to pull back the skin on your face, to 'lift' or 'smoothen' your skin while looking into mirror yet you are reluctant to go for aesthetic treatment and no other products have been working for you?

If YES, you might want to try out this new Murad Retinal ReSculpt™ Overnight Treatment!

Murad Retinal ReSculpt™ Overnight Treatment helps to dramatically lifts and improves sagging skin using retinal: one of the most efficacious forms of Vitamin A.

I have always heard about Retinol in skincare and this is the first time I came across Retinal. Retinal can be far more potent than retinol and it works great for wrinkle reduction and age prevention.

Murad Retinal ReSculpt™ Overnight Treatment is formulated with ingredients such as Kangaroo paw flower and olive leaf extracts that help improve saggy appearance, smooth wrinkles and support resilience, with oat lipids and alpha glucan that help replenish ceramide s (lipids that are found naturally in high concentrations in the uppermost layers of the skin) to increase moisture and restore the skin's barrier.

The product has been clinically proven to tackle major signs of advanced aging by visibly lifting necks/jowl sagging and increasing elasticity, it will smoothen deep-set wrinkles. 

And it is encapsulated in a delivery system that's adapted from technology used in pharmaceutical applications, which enables the Retinal ReSculpt™ Overnight Treatment to provide enhanced stability and targeted delivery deep into the skin's surface for 2.5 times more effectiveness, as compared to free retinal, while still being gentle on the skin!

With its nourishing formula, it's good for balanced, oily, dry or combination skin. It's easy to absorb, leaving the skiin feeling supple, soft and moisturised. 

I was told one can see transformative results in just two weeks of use for sagging and crepey skin, with improved skin elasticity in about four weeks of use! This is pretty impressive promise as this is a non-invasive skincare treatment! It's definitely safer than injectables for sure!

So I'm quite excited to try this out. I just started to use every night and I can't wait to share with you guys the results! Follow my instagram @jessyings for more regular updates! 

Murad's Retinal ReSculpt™ Overnight Treatment will be available for sale from June 1, 2023 at all Murad outlets, as well as at https://ww , where it will retail at RM598. To learn more about this product, check out: - resculpt - overnight - treatment/

THREE Cosmetics Malaysia is now in Pavilion KL! Picture and Swatch of THREE Sakuraism Season 2016 Collection

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.

THREE Whisper Gloss For Eye priced at RM173
Delicate light and nuance laden color of the veil, to dwell a glossy shine and the three-dimensional depth to the eyes, brings the spring seems to life feeling. 

Ingredients : Olive oil , meadowfoam oil tea seed oil Argan oil, jojoba oil ,Evening primrose oil , rosehip oil, Shea Butter, beeswax

THREE Whisper Gloss For Eye (RM173)

S01 Sakuraism Whisper - Bloom mode opulence to the eyes, smoky baby pink. 

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.

 THREE Shimmering Lip Jam (RM157)

S01 Sakuraism Sweet - bloomed to direct a smile to the sun, sweet pink shine in blue sky.

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. 

Ingredients : Tea seed oil Argan oil,  jojoba oil,  Evening primrose oil, rosehip oil, Shea Butter, beeswax

  THREE Cheeky Chic Blush priced (RM157)

S01 Sakuraism Rising - Of elation that cherry tree was blooming, bright cherry pink transparent to pure.

S02 Sakuraism Awakening - Feel the happiness in the spring of warmth, gentle flower bloom blooming Coral.

My pick would be Sakuraism Rising because my skin tone looks better in pink than coral. The texture of the blusher is pretty fine but it's semi matte and looks pretty natural. 
 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. Enjoy recoating or multi-colored in fully, it is a clear color.

  THREE Nail Polish for Sakuraism Collection 2016 (RM95)

S01 Moment of Sakuraism - Representation of the cherry tree of loveliness and heart admire it, innocent cherry pink.

S02 Sakuraism Sky - The petals will be sucked into the sky and image, dusty cherry Sky.

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!)

NEW : ZA True White EX Skincare Range

 Early this year ZA launched the All-New Za True White EX in Italianese in Gardens. Such a lovely set up!   

 Za True White Ex For a truly brighter skin

The Za True White Ex consists of six products :-

ZA True White Ex Cleansing Foam 100ml - ( RM19.90)
The Za True White Ex Cleansing Foam is a type of cleansing foam that acts gently and removes the dead corneal cells that contain melanin from your skin surface with its rich lather. It gives a cushioning effect to your skin and leads to a brighter, clearer skin, and this cleansing foam is the first step in using the Za True White Ex Range.

ZA True White Ex Toner 150ml - (RM39.90)
Coming in a 150ml bottle, the Za True White Ex Toner is the next step in using the Za True White Ex range. This whitening toner is a moist type lotion that keeps your skin looking translucent and hydrated. The Za True White Ex Toner gives clarity to the skin, leaving a refreshing sensation after each use. Keep your

Za True White Ex Day Cream SPF20 PA++ 40g - RM49.90
Keep your skin moist while protecting yourself against the harmful UV rays during the day. With a smooth after-feel, you’ll no longer feel the ‘heaviness’ on your skin – feel fresh and comfortable all-day long!

Za True White Ex Night Cream 40g - RM49.90
Allow Za True White Ex to work for you while you indulge in your beauty sleep! Use this whitening cream before you hit the sack and wake up to a more moisturized and translucent skin the day after. Its lightweight finishing works effectively and provides comfort

Za True White Ex Exfoliating Clay 100g - RM24.90
The Za True White Ex Exfoliating Clay clogs dullness-causing dirt that clogs pores and also effectively removes dead keratin cells that contains melanin. Use the Za True White Ex Exfoliating Clay once or twice a week to unveil a brand-new translucent and bright skin.

The star of the Za True White Ex series is the Za True White Ex Essence Lotion 150ml (RM54.90). The Smarter 3-in-1 Skin Brightener claims to reduce dark spots and even out skin tone in just 7 days! 

Formulated with the Triple Whitening Ingredients which contains 4MSK, APM and Vitamin C essence (VC-IP), the thick liquid hydrates the skin to give you more translucent skin!

This single lotion promises pronounced whitening and moisturizing effects without the needs of additional essence or emulsion. This lotion is a new type of gel-like lotion that is luxuriously formulated withwhitening essence encapsulated within fine granular particles.

Besides the whitening and moisturizing ingredients, the Za True White Ex Essence Lotion contains Hydrolytic Pearl Protein extract derived from conchiolin, a substance that exists in the layer of Pinctada Fucata (Akoya Pearl Oysters). It is known to demonstrate high effect on anti-aging, skin texture refining and whitening and has been widely used in traditional Chinese medicine. It has also been served as a delicacy or as precious medicine, amulet, antidote, and cosmetics.

Seems like now essence lotion is an IN thing for beauty brand. I have tried Estee Lauder Micro Essence Lotion absolutely love it. Another brand that has essence lotion is Clinique but am not a big fan of Clinique so I'm putting on hold to try it. And looking at ZA which comes under Shiseido group has it now, where the price is so much more affordable I shall try this out soon! 

Triple Whitening Ingredients
Za True White series include both whitening-target ingredients and moisturizing-target ingredients. True White Ex targets to clear dark spots, blemishes and acne marks through its blend of active whitening ingredients - Whitening 4MSK and highly moisturizing spa ingredients to give you soft, smooth and transparent white skin. 

The whitening-target ingredients are formulated with Whitening 4MSK and two derivatives of Vitamin C (APM, VC-IP). Whitening 4MSK is an effective whitening ingredient exclusively developed by Shiseido over 13 years ( I remembered it's the same ingredient used under Shiseido White Lucent Brightening Essence!) . It can inhibit the generation of melanin, accelerate the elimination of melanin out from the skin, even out skin tone and remove marks of dark spots. Together with the 4MSK, the derivatives from the Vitamin C, APM and VC-IP deoxidize melanin and accelerate its elimination, restoring clear and bright skin. 

The moisturizing-target ingredients contain spa ingredients such as Natural Spring Water from the Cazzaro Mountain (Tuscany, Italy), Aquainpool, Glycerol, TMG, Trehalose, and White Lily. These ingredients are known to bring you an extraordinary whitening experience which puts no stress on the skin, just like having a whitening facial spa every day! Besides its floral green fragrance of Tea Rose, blended with the lovely fragrance of Jasmine and the fresh smell of Lilac will surely make your stressful day a better one!

Have you try any of the ZA skincare before ?

It was great to catch up with Mimi (owner of Bag of Love) , me & JQ at the event. My hair is so pretty that time because just had a makeover from Centro Hair Salon that time! 

Za True White Ex series would be available starting March 2014 at leading pharmacy chains, supermarkets and hypermarkets nationwide. Price range RM19.90 to RM54.90.

Light Up the Season with L'occitane Christmas Holiday Un Noel a Grasse Collection!

In conjunction with the Christmas Holiday season, L'occitane introduced additional two new limited additions of scents & body products to the existing La Collection de Grasse which was introduced last May. 

 The NEW Fleur d'Or & Acacia (for her) and Cedre & Oranger (for him) fragrance

L'occitane Fleur d'Or & Acacia (For Her) comes in orange/gold packaging and consists of 8 products.

Key raw materials: Mimosa Absolute from Grasse, Acacia from the Mediterranean Basin.
Family: Musky Floral
Head notes: Lemon, Bergamot
Heart notes: Mimosa, Acacia
Base notes: White Wood, Musk

By looking at the ingredients, it would be a sweet scent for sure. My first thought of L'occitane Fleur d'Or & Acacia EDT (75ml for RM225) when I tried it on my hand is that it has a very strong warm honey scent which is too much for my liking. To my surprise it smell quite different when my friend tried on her hand. So I guess the chemical reaction is different from persons and you got to try it to see if the scent suits you personally. 

 Besides fragrance, L'ocittane also produced a whole series of body products for this range such as

Luminous Oil (100ml, RM110)
Glitter and light, shimmering particles, shea butter and sweet almond oil…Nourishing yet lightweight, mist this sheer, fluid dry oil over hair and body for a scented veil of moisture.

Shower Gel (175ml, RM62)
Lit up by golden pearly particles, this velvety-soft gel melts into a dense, rich foam on contact with water. Skin is deliciously scented with a powdery floral scent.

Perfumed Soap (50g, RM21)
Bathtime is now a luxurious experience with this soap bar, which gently cleanses with a creamy lather.

Body Milk (175ml, RM92)
The feather-light texture skins in to leave skin smooth and soft with Shea Butter and Sweet Almond Oil. Skin stays comfortably hydrated and wonderfully scented.

Lip Gloss (15ml, RM56)
It has smooth, creamy texture that nourishes, protects and leaves a beautiful sheen on the lips. 

Hand Cream (30ml, RM38)
Rapidly absorbed, the scented hand cream nourishes and moisturises hands anywhere, anytime of the day.

Scented Candle (270g, RM135)
Light up your living space with this luminous scent with bursts of refreshing orange that will definitely relax frazzled minds.

While L'occitane Cedre & Oranger (For Him) comes in forest green packaging offers a total of 5 products.

L'occitane Cedar & Oranger EDP (75ml, RM225) offers a fresh woody scent of cedar wood that bring back memories of good times as a child are paired with the scent of orange trees, laden with ripe, juicy fruits. Solemn and majestic yet cheeky, this fragrance is sweetened by hints of musk, to create a bold, intense impression.

Key raw materials: Virginian Cedarwood Essential Oil, Italian Orange Essence.
Family: Citrus Woody
Head notes: Orange, Bergamot, Pine Needles
Heart notes: Cedar
Base notes: Vetiver, Musk

For this men range, there is only 3 products to complement the EDP i.e

After Shave Balm 75ml, RM120: Housed in an understated aluminium tube, this post-shave balm soothes, moisturises and leaves skin lightly scented.

Shower Gel 175ml, RM62: Perfect for the gym or weekends away, this gentle 2-in-1 formula is ideal for skin and hair.

Perfumed Soap 50g, RM21: This non-dying soap bar cleanses without stripping away skin’s natural moisture. Perfect for hands and body.

Between this 2 scent, I would prefer L'occitane Cedre & Oranger although this is the men range. Although usually I don't like very woody or musky scent, but this L'occitane Cedar & Oranger EDP scent caught my attention. The citrus scent seems to balance the musky scent very well. This is worth checking out! 

Just like the past years,L'occitane also would be offering limited edition gift sets which is perfect as Christmas gift. Below are the set for this Christmas collection:
Fleur d’Or Leur Collection For Her RM341 (worth RM379) comes with Holiday Box
Fleur d’Or EDT 75ml
Fleur d’Or Shower Gel 175ml
Fleur d’Or Body Milk 175ml

Shine with Fleur d’Or For Her RM201 (worth RM379) comes with Holiday Pouch 
Fleur d’Or Lip Gloss 15ml
Fleur d’Or Hand Cream 30ml
Fleur d’Or Sublime 75ml

Cedre Dargent Collection (worth RM407) comes with Holiday Box
Cedre EDT 75ml 
Cedre Shower Gel 157ml
