Still having doubts about it? Last week, me & 5 other beautiful ladies decided to take our Worthy Book - Ladies Edition for a spin at one of the spa featured here, Vila Manja. Located at the heart of KL, this spa ironically is one of the most peaceful place I've ever been to besides a library, hehe =P From the moment we enter the villa, we were dazzled by the beautiful sight and relaxing traditional tune right away. Beautiful isn't it? ^_^

Manja Relaxing Body Massage is highly influenced by the Indonesian body treatment which concentrate more on giving you soothing and continuous strokes all over the body while attending to specific body points to relieve sores and aches. I can't really stand hard pressure so I personally asked my masseuse to handle me with care, wink2 Did I tell you about our spacious room yet? It can fit like up to 5 people at times! There are lots of other room here as well too, I can smell a party coming, hehe =P

Before the treatment started, we were given a sarong, towels, shower cap and disposable panty to change into. The massage treatment was so comforting and I dozed off faster than I planned to =) The 60 minutes really re-energize and recharge me! Right after the treatment I have like endless energy moving from one corner to another taking pictures and having fun with the ladies. All of us look contented and glowing, don't you think? ❤_

Youthful Glow with Vanity Trove x Kose...

Looking young has always been women obsession for centuries. Back then, they relied heavily on natural resources to help maintain their youthful look and appearance. It's not surprising that most of them still look healthy and beautiful even at their golden age =) Me? I know I look older than I supposed to so yes, anti aging stuff have become one of my top priority now... Thanks to the fast delivery, Vanity Trove x Kose special edition box come just at right time and place ❤_

If you are following the local beauty community, you probably aware that Vanity Trove July box had ignited quite a reaction from the beauty enthusiasts. Some of them love it, some of them not really happy about it. Honestly, I felt a little bit of both. I kind of like the idea of special box collaboration with renowned brand like Kose very much but I'm not that excited about the products size given. I'm hoping for at least one full size item since my previous Vanity Trove boxes never fail to do so =(

As you can see from the above picture, there are 5 deluxe size products and sample sachets from Kose Infinite Young range came with this box. Almost all of them is from their latest Pure Advance collection which just hit the Malaysian market in July. Let's take a closer look at the products shall we? =)

 (1) Infinity Kose - Pure Advance Oil Cleansing Gel
If you're looking for cleansing oil with gel like texture, this definitely the one you should go for. It's quite different from the regular cleansing oil which I personally think can be quite hard to control and manage. Retail at RM119 for 120g, it's worth checking out if you looking for alternative form of cleansing oil that is travel friendly.

(2) Infinity Kose - Pure Advance Serum II
It's actually works to adjust the balance of oil and water in skin which is prone to open pores and rough texture, caused by dryness. It's quite heavy for me and don't absorbs as fast as I want to but it does feel softer once the serum settle in. Price at RM169 for 120ml, it's not really a must have if you're not a fan of heavy consistency serum.

(3) Infinity Kose - Deep Protection UV
This is actually not a part of the Pure Advance range but a very nice addition indeed. Retail at RM118 for 30g, it works by protecting the skin from UV-A and UV-B rays with the highest SPF/PA protection to protect the skin firmness and elasticity. With the harsh Malaysian weather, this can become handy for those who works outdoor a lot. I might have to think twice about giving it another shot though since it does feel oily when applied to my skin.

(4) Infinity Kose Pure Advance Essence Lotion II
 Essence lotion is pretty much like toner, works by rejuvenate and plump up the tired skin with it's natural essence. I like how refreshing it made my skin feels like and how pleasant the scent is against my skin. Price at RM169 for 160ml, I have the feeling that even the full size item wont last me that long, wink2

(5) Infinity Kose - Pure Advance Clear Up Wash
I know I should review the cleanser first but a little chaos is kind of interesting, don't you think? =P With it's meringue like bubbles, this face wash removes any sebum and makeup from your skin effectively with only a tiny amount of product. The cheapest of them all at only RM99 for 120g, I will probably buy it just for the texture alone, hehe =P

(6) Infinity Kose - Pure Advance Eye Jelly
If you lucky enough to see my eyes without any makeup, I'm sure you will cringe at the sight of it. It's badly in need of a secret potion that can vanish the signs of aging and make it look more presentable. Unfortunately, this eye jelly which claim can help creating eyes that radiate with a vibrant impression can't last me long enough to see the improvement =( I'm still in my never ending quest to find the perfect eye cream though, may the force be with me~ Retail at RM180 for 20g, go grab it if you're a big fan of eye jelly.

Before I forget, there's also a voucher given in this box to redeem a FREE trendy pouch and skin consultation & analysis with any purchase from Kose Infinity Pure Advance range. Check out Kose Malaysia FB page or their website here for more information about the products. Vanity Trove beauty box is retail at RM50 and can be purchase through their website link here. Do visit Vanity Trove FB page for more updates and beauty promotion =) Till then, have a fabulous Sunday & stay forever young ladies, adieu~

Back to the party, my role that day pretty much like a hostess (or GRO if you prefer, lol) So yes, basically I'm in charge of entertaining the guests and keep them occupied with my charming banter, wink2 Since I love working around people and talkative by nature, I came early feeling excited and thrilled to get the party started.

When I first stepped in Amante Sri Petaling, I felt like I've been transported to another continent... I mean, the lingering scent of lemongrass, warm greetings from the staff and of course the very pretty party decoration definitely scream awesome faster than I can even spell it!!! Ask Joey really did a wonderful job at decorating the whole place. Everything from the mint and white lantern, the fancy cookies, the party props and the cute signs made me smiling up to my ears all day =)

Japanese Breeze with K-Palette...

The last time I go crazy over anything Japanese was like a decade ago, a phase that I finally overcome after I get my first taste of sushi, LOL Japanese cosmetics however is a territory that I never really feel like exploring due to the lack of kawaii-ness factor with my face feature T_T Thanks to Manoah Consulting invite, I finally succumbed to the peer pressure and decided to give K-Palette a shot, a decision I regret not, wink2

Little that I know, K-Palette actually producing one of the most sought after eyeliner in Japan @_@ Eyeliner if you didn't know, happened to be one of the beauty item that I can't live without!!! I will look seriously ill if I didn't use any so an opportunity to learn more about the bestselling eyeliner definitely look appealing to me =) For our special workshop, K-Palette flew in not one but 3 of their important people; Mr. Kinoshita (president), Miss Inagaki (makeup artist) and not to forget Mr Suzuki (translator) to introduce their unique product range to Malaysian market.

With more than 15 years of experience in the beauty industry, Miss Inagaki have tons of tips and tricks up her sleeve and she shared with us a very interesting approach to wear makeup that day which is by determining your face type. There are several characteristic to be consider first by the way; such as your face length, forehead size, the distance between your eyes and the shape of your eyes before you can ruled out your face type.

Acoording to Miss Inagaki, I have a mixture of cool and cute face; so I should use minimal makeup and focus on my favorite feature to avoid looking older and fiercer. I choose to emphasize my eyes by lining it with K-Palette 1 Day Tattoo Liquid Eyeliner in black and curl my lashes with K-Palette 1 Day Tattoo Lash Perm Mascara in black. As you can see from the above picture, it gave my eyes an intense jet black colour and an obvious long curl lashes without the aid of eyelash curler or even fake eyelashes, yeay~

Besides that, we were given the privilege to be among the first Malaysian to try out K-Palette brand new stuff; K-Palette Real Lasting Tear Tank before it's even available here in the country, awesome right? Instead of hiding your eye bags, K-Palette Real Lasting Tear Tank works by enhancing the appearance of your dark undereye with it's shimmery powder to create the impression of bigger and fuller eyes. If your refer to my dear friend, Illy eyes transformation up here, you'll notice the tremendous difference before and after she's using the product, nice isn't it? ❤_❤

Before the session ends, I grab the opportunity to practise my rusty Japanase lines with Miss Inagaki herself and can't help myself from taking a quick photo with the very pretty makeup guru, hehe =P Thanks to K-Palette, all of us get to bring back home their 1 Day Tattoo Liquid Eyeliner and 1 Day Tattoo Lash Perm Mascara, weeee~ @_@ If you want to learn more about K-palette, do visit their FB page here or make your way to the nearest pharmacy to try out their fantastic products yourself, you'll love it I'm sure ^_~

True Blue with Samsung...

Feeling blue? With Samsung, you have no reasons to =) From designing state of the art gadgets to plan a fabulous event, Samsung definitely know them all, wink2 If you haven't heard about it already, yours truly and almost hundred other bloggers were gathered in an exclusive get to know session with Samsung Malaysia couple of weeks ago by Manoah Consulting at The Pool, Jln Ampang.

We were greeted that day with friendly faces, pretty decoration and cool ambiance, perfect recipe for any party ^_^ Everything from the balloons, flowers, to the runway were beautifully put together in white and blue; in-sync with the Samsung corporate colors ❤_❤

Another awesome stuff about this party, the host thoughtfully prepared a gigantic photobooth for us to capture our wonderful moments with fellow bloggers and friends. I had so much fun fooling around and almost lost track of time playing with the machine. Very immature me, I know =P

Did I mention who's the MC that day? It's Linora Low from my favorite radio station, Red FM, yeay!!! She heated up the mood in lighting speed and making all the bloggers feeling good already before they even eat, hehe =P Soon after that, Don Chan on behalf of Manoah Consulting took over the stage and introduced us to the powerful people behind Samsung Malaysia team =) One of them is Mr Frankie, the social media genius who wowed us that day with videos of super creative Samsung campaigns from all over the world @_@

We were not only exposed to the ‘behind the scene’ people who make Samsung a household name here in Malaysia; we also learn a little thing or two about the brands, their idea, vision and not to forget their inspiration and motivation =) So basically yes, it’s a very educational party for me, wink2

There was also contest going on that night to highlight Samsung TecTiles application; another technology breakthrough which uses Samsung’s NFC (Near Field Communication) that can helps user changing setting on their phone, launching applications, checking in to places, updating social status or even making phone calls automatically just by tapping your phone to the TecTiles to perform the actions. Very impressive I must say!!!

A party won’t be called a party without friends to hanging out with right? I had great time catching up, chatting and even gossiping with my blogger friends that day =) The food was not that bad either, definitely worth waiting for, LOL Besides photobooth’s photos as momento, Samsung generously packed us with their limited edition speaker and USB bracelet to bring back home @_@ Thank you so much Samsung Malaysia and Manoah Consulting for having me, I really looking forward for more great things to come ❤_❤
