Fun In The Sun with Kiehl's...


If I were given the chance to choose between hiding from the sun or having fun soaking up in it, I think I will pick the latter in a heartbeat!!! Imagine enjoying the heat with your girlfriends while gossiping and doing fun activities with skincare brand that needs no introduction like Kiehl's, sounds like a lots of fun, isn't it? Thanks to The Butterfly Project initiative, my fun in the sun fantasy can finally become reality next Sunday at the One Utama Secret Garden, weeeeeeee \\@_@//


The event will focus on Kiehl's Ultra Facial Oil-Free Formula range that were design to combat shine without leaving the skin feeling dehydrated. For someone who have combination-oily skin like me, finding products that's both moisturizing & shine-free is like a search that will never end... Most of the stuff I used before tend to make me look shinier instead of giving me the dewy effect, sigh~ So yes, I'm looking forward to give Kiehl's Ultra Facial Oil-Free Formula a try with the other 30 butterflies =)

Why do I need 24 hours no-shine fresh hydration? 

If you take a look at my skin closely, you'll noticed that my cheeks area can be very dry and intensified especially when I exposed to air conditioning for hours during my working period. Sometimes the dry area will look even more obvious when I used certain type of makeup such as powder or gel type foundation =_= I really hope Kiehl's Ultra Facial Oil-Free Formula can help me fix that problem and give my skin 24 hours no-shine fresh hydration that it deserved

What do I love about Kiehl's?

What I love the most about Kiehl's is how customer oriented their policy really is. Unlike certain brands, you can ask freely for sample before making any purchase to make sure the products perfect for your skin and won't cause any allergic reaction. That's not all, they do go as far as giving money back guarantee if you're not satisfied with their stuff after using it for 28 days!!! Who can resist such confidence? Even Hollywood celebs like Brad Pitt & Julianne Moore succumbed to that, lol

 
So, if you're looking for the solution to your shine and lack of moisture skin, you can always visit any Kiehl's outlets to ask for the Kiehl's Ultra Facial Oil-Free Formula range samples and try it out yourself ^_^ After all, you have nothing to lose by giving it a shot, wink2 For more information & details, do check out Kiehl's website or facebook page. Until then, have a wonderful day lovelies & don't forget to have your fun in the sun, adieu~


Unearth The Rainforest Gems with Borneo Soap...


Do you ever wonder what's the treasure hidden underneath the world's oldest rainforest? Yes lovelies, I'm talking about our very own Borneo Rainforest, the kingdom of heaven to more than 15,000 species!!! Isn't that amazing? I used to live in Sarawak for almost 10 years but the beautiful scenery and untouched pristine nature still have the ability to mesmerize and render me speechless... Now, I can finally have Borneo best kept secret to enhance my bathing experience with Borneo Soap, weeee~


Inspired by ancient wisdom, Borneo Soap organic skin care products fuses time honored tradition with modern bath and beauty formulations that are natural, healthy, and from non-toxic alternatives from facial, body to foot care. Individually handmade, all the soaps are made from natural ingredients native to the rainforest of Borneo and totally devoid of harsh detergents, synthetic preservatives, artificial colors and fragrances, greasy mineral oils and even animal fats. 


According to Amin Aznizan, the Borneo Soap representative during their Mother's Day Appreciation Event; all the organic skin care products were derived from specific skin-loving ingredients heralded for their healing, therapeutic properties and long used by the indigenous people of Borneo in their bath and beauty rituals. Not only that, every attention to detail is given to each and every blend of the handmade soaps to provide a luxurious cleansing experience to be treasured and enjoyed daily.


Curious about the unique ingredients from Borneo Rainforest that were used in the making of Borneo Soap? Some of them might rings a bell for example the Bario Rice which originates from the Bario Highland. Watered by the mountain, Bario Rice is rich in minerals and renowned for its reviving skin care properties. Another popular one is Dabai, an indigenous fruit that can be found along the riverbanks of Sibu, Kapit & Sarikei. It is often used for facial care due to its moisturising nature.


Not only that, each soaps were made using pure and concentrated Goat's Milk as the base & enriched with high quality ingredients such as Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Evening Primrose Oil or Avocado Oil to moisturize and smoothen your skin. What sets Borneo Soap apart from the other brands in the market is their soap is actually made using unusual soap making method called Cold Process, where no heat is applied and the ingredients were mixed evenly until it produces the finest mixture.


It's to ensures that the good nutrients are retained since it'll most likely destroyed if you apply any heat. The soaps were then left to cure naturally for 21 days in room temperature. This procedure will remove all the moisture & made the ingredients react with each other. Next, the soaps will be cut using traditional chinese musical instrument and will be manually inspected to make sure it meets the standard quality before it'll be packed and send all over the world ^_^


So basically yes, you'll get 100% natural ingredient in every bar of Borneo Soap. Everything from foot & body bath, facial bar and feminine wash, they have it all. Now, you can get a taste of Borneo goodness like Limau Masam Borneo, Lada Sarawak, Sago Mukah, Daun Sireh Sarawak, Madu & Gandum Borneo and of course the famous Beras Bario and Dabai Sarawak at a very interesting price and deal. Wanna know more? Stay tune till the end of this post okie, wink2


To make the event even more fabulous, all of us were treated with pampering session at the award winning spa, Spa Village @ Ritz Carlton... If you're a fan of Asia Next Top Model Cycle 2, you probably noticed the spa beautiful interior in one of the episode. I felt instantly relax just from entering this spa =) How I wish my dear mum was there to enjoy the awesome day with me T_T Let's save up for another date, I'm pretty sure you'll love it here mummy @_@

Losing It with Per'lXlim...


Hitting 30 is not exactly walk in the park for me... My metabolism wasn’t as fast as it used to be, I get sick easily and I’m not fit enough to flee if someone chasing after me, sigh~ And that’s not exactly the worst part, I’m honestly way too lazy to hit the gym and working out regularly wasn’t really my cup of tea! What’s that left me? Plastic surgery, extreme diet or super impose my photos maybe? I hope I won’t have to resort to that, lol


I’m very curious actually when I first heard about Power Root latest range for women; Per’lXlim. If you’re not familiar with Power Root, it has been around since July 1999 and known as the leading company in Malaysia that develops herbal energy drinks fortified with 2 rainforest herbs; Eurycoma longifolia Jack a.k.a Tongkat Ali and Labisia Pumilia & Pathoina or Kacip Fatimah. These herbs are indigenous to Malaysia properties for promoting physical well-being are highly regarded by Malaysians.


Being among the earliest people to discover the secret of Per’lXlim during the meet up session at Alessio, Publika; I can safely say that it’s really meets my expectation =) Since the product will be released very soon, I guess there’s no harm to share a little bit about it with you girls, right? Per’lXlim is definitely the perfect weight loss solution for busy (or lazy) women out there. It’s reasonably price, accessible and comes in 2 delicious flavors; Coffee & Chocolate @_@

What makes it even more special, it’s infused with 2 main ingredients; Green Coffee which proven can slows the absorption of fat food intake and activates the metabolism of extra fat and also Kidney Bean which stops the calories from being absorbed into our body by prevent the stomach from breaking the carbs down into simple sugar. Or in another words, Per’lXlim helps you losing weight without exercising or skipping your meal, yeaaaaay!!!

That’s not all of course, there are Collagen and Kacip Fatimah added to the mixture as well to give you additional benefit such as improving your skin condition, increase moisture content, skin elasticity, rejuvenate healthy hair and nail, stabilizing the tissue that in need of estrogen hormone and helps in managing diarrhea. 


Did I mention that we were weight in and measured at the event to track down our weight loss progress? I have no idea I gain 2 kg since last January and I need to look my best this June! Do you think I can pull it off in these couple of months? I really hope I can get rid of the unwanted fat by that time =) Let’s the next weight in be the judge, wink2

Well, I’ve consume Per’lXlim for 2 weeks now and guess what? I love how it taste; rich and creamy, full enough to fill me and how energatic it make me feels. It’s pretty easy to take too, just mixed it with 150ml water and drink it twice a day, 30 minutes before your breakfast and lunch. For more information & details about Per’lXlim, do visit their website or facebook page. Until the next post, have a wonderful day lovelies, adieu~

Keep Calm & Have a Happy Period with Whisper...


I’m sure most of the women out there have lots of experience dealing with that “time of the month”... PMS, period pain and the bloody mess (just to name a few) might looks like nothing from men perspective but believe me, it’s a very2 big deal  for us women. We still have to go through the motion despite the uncomfortable situation when the only thing we crave more than anything is just to lay down on our bed all day and cry ourselves to sleep T_T

Thank you Whisper


That’s not all, we were introduced to Whisper new products that day, Whisper Cottony Cotton & Whisper Ultra which comes with double protection and fresher feels. Being women bestfriend for years, Whisper definitely understand what every women needs to make their period experience, a very happy one =) Let’s check out what sets them apart from the other pads, shall we?

Nars Week : Nars Satin & Sheer Lipstick - Niagara & Mayflower

Time really flies fast, don't you think? And it's the Final Day of my Nars Week, lovelies!!! I'm having so much fun with the series and I'm actually sad that it has come to an end T_T Don't worry though, I'll work extra hard to widen my Nars Cosmetics collection and you can expect Nars Week 2.0 coming your way, wink2 I'm saving the best for last of course and today, we'll take a look at the gorgeous Nars Satin Lipstick in Niagara & Nars Sheer Lipstick in Mayflower _


Honestly, I have no intention to buy any lipstick during my first visit to Nars outlet early this year but after testing and trying some of them, I really like how moisturize and buttery smooth it feels against my lips @_@ Noticing that, they suggested me to give their bestseller lipstick, Mayflower a try and oh my, I just can't stop there and decided to bring Niagara back home as well. I knew I still have lots of lipsticks that I barely touch but who can say no to these beautiful shade? Not me obviously, lol

Nars Satin Lipstick - Niagara 
3.4g [RM90.00]
★★★

A little about Nars Satin Lipstick, it claims to give you a lustrous, long wearing lipstick infused with patented blend of conditioner and antioxidants to provide ultra smooth, comfortable wear and sumptuously, silky color that hydrate, nourish and protect your lips. It's also enriched with Vitamin E to increase wearability and keeps true color intact. Comes in a 12 sophisticated shade, Niagara is defined as pink based coral color with soft, satin finish.

Nars Sheer Lipstick - Mayflower 
3.4g [RM90.00]
★★★

According to Nars Cosmetics, this sheer formula is infused with patented blend of conditioners and antioxidants to hydrate, nourish and improve the condition of the lips. With 24 lush shades to choose from, Nars Sheer Lipstick comes in a lightweight formula that glides on smoothly and beautifully besides giving you long lasting color pigments. Mayflower is describe by Nars Cosmetics as a sheer shimmering raspberry with lightly shimmer, glossy finish.


MY VERDICT : These lippy I'm afraid, doesn't stay as long as I want it to be, sigh~ It does however last longer when I dab powder foundation before applying it which I don't really mind doing since I always do it anyway. I'm in love with the lipsticks mostly because it's hard for me to find lipstick that doesn't cling to my dry area and Niagara definitely helps me with that. Mayflower on the other hand, doesn't really show well with only one swipe but other than that, it's wonderful enough for me ^_^

For more information and details, please visit Nars Cosmetics official website or you can make your way to their flagship store at Pavilion, KL. Until we meet again lovelies, don't forget to check out the other reviews from my Nars Week series, adieu~

Day 4 : Nars Blush - Amour 


Nars Week : Nars Blush - Amour


I think it'll be a crime to blog about Nars Cosmetics without even mentioning their award winning, star product; Nars Blush... So for Day 4 of my Nars Week, I'm gonna feature my favorite blusher from Nars Cosmetics instead. No, it's not the most talked about blushers in the makeup sphere; Nars Blush in Orgasm nor Nars Blush in Deep Throat, I'm actually very much in love with the unsung hero from this line a.k.a the less popular, Nars Blush in Amour ❤_❤

As the ultimate authority in blush, Nars Cosmetics offers the industry's most iconic shades for cheeks. Natural, healthy-looking color that immediately enlivens the complexion. A light application of even the highest-intensity hues delivers a natural-looking flush. With micronized powder to ensures soft, blendable application and silky texture; this range offers 31 shades of blush from matte to shimmer to compliment every skin tone and color =)


Nars Blush in Amour can be describe as a peachy pink shade but honestly, I think it's a lot more closer to pink than peach in real life. It's not shimmery at all like Nars Blush in Orgasm which I initially bought for myself and decide to gave my sister soon after due to it's shimmering effects which doesn't really flatter combination-oily skin like mine T_T Housed in a Nars signature black packaging, this blusher comes with a build in mirror, without any applicator included.


This shade is surprisingly very versatile... I can see lots of ways to wear it, I can brush it lightly to get a subtle rosy cheek or can intensify the color by layering it up for night and glamorous look. Since it's quite easy to blend and very pigmented, I personally think applying it with a fan brush would be the best option for me. The color I believe shows up so much better whenever I used it together with Nars Pro-Prime Pore Refining Primer ^_^

Nars Blush - Amour
4.8g [RM120.00]
★★★

MY VERDICT : Despite being a little bit drying, I can't help but loving this beautiful blush. It's very wearable for everyday use and it looks pretty enough to me weather I'm using primer beforehand or going without. I also love the fact that it gave matte finish instead of shimmery which will only emphasize my combination-oily skin and of course I really like that it have staying power up to more than 5 hours!!! This blusher is definitely a must have for all of you ladies out there @_@

For more information and details, please visit Nars Cosmetics official website or you can make your way to their flagship store at Pavilion, KL. Until we meet again ladies, don't forget to check out the other reviews from my Nars Week series, adieu~
