I beg your pardon? Fat Freeze?

Oh come on, we all have fats! No matter how thin and slender one is there is bound to be stubborn fats somewhere, belly, thighs, arms, you name it! We all want to get rid of it so badly, and tell ourselves “I’m gonna start working out”, 3 months down the line we are nowhere to be seen in the gym! Or “I’m going to start eating clean”, less than 24 hours we are caught with a packet of McDonald’s French Fries in our hands at 4.30pm.  Does any of this sound familiar? Well, it has happen to me one to many times that I have finally given up trying so hard. When I don’t try so hard to go to the gym, I actually end up in the gym. The harder I try, the more impossible it seems.

A Mask A Day Keeps the Wrinkles at Bay

Beauty regime can sometimes be such a chore. Do you feel like that sometimes? I feel it every time I start putting on makeup because I know when the day ends I’ll have to remove, cleanse, double cleanse and the lost goes on. Meh! Have to bare with it for the sake of great skin.

What does Organic Skincare Products means?

Who's battling with skin's hydration problem? *Waves hand in the air like a madwoman If there's one thing I have to say about my skin it is ‘Dry like the Sahara Desert’. Believe it or not, I have Dry and Uneven skin, so every facial product I use must be hydrating! From Moisturizers to Facial Mask,I always opt for hydrating ones instead of whitening, firming or anti aging. My concept is pretty simple, if your skin is hydrated then you don't have to worry about wrinkles this anti aging and firming is out of the equation. The moment my skin is dry it will act up upon me with red flaky patches. Thankfully,it hasn't happened for a while now. I've stopped using serum since I ran out and since then I've been using a moisturizer and mask which works wonders. So what have I been using?

Horien Eye Secret - Daily Disposable Contact Lens

Eyes are the windows to the souls so they say, and I agree which is why after trying out the 3 months contact lense from Horien Eye Secret (Read about it here) I have decided to try the daily disposable contact lens as well. I seldom wear contact lens unless I have an event or photoshoot, So I thought daily contact lens would be more suitable for me as I could easily dispose them after the event instead of keeping them and then reuse them in probably 2 months later.

I Look and Feel Younger!

Let’s talk about my favourite topic in the whole wide world. AESTHETIC, yes. Lol. If you follow me closely on Social Media (Facebook + Instagram) you would know that 2 weeks before Chinese New Year I visited Premier CLinic TTDI, so why did I visit them this time? Well, you know what happens during Chinese New Year right? You meet all the relatives that you don’t often see and when they see you they start giving you those millionaire questions and then some even start to comment on appearances. I guess this is why before Chinese New Year we will all get new haircut, new clothes and try to look our best. Makes sense right? So this year, I decided to rewind time! Yup, to take years of my look younger! And let me tell you it was a success, there's 5 more days to the end of Chinese New Year and so far I have had nothing but compliments of looking younger. What did I do?

Bring out your inner beauty with these 5 Premium Ingredients

Hey! It's almost Chinese New Year and besides all the fun, laughter and visiting, there is one more thing that marks that is Chinese New Year here in Malaysia - The Heat from the Scorching Sun! Yes, it is so hot that sometimes it makes visiting family and friends such a chore, for me at least. Lol. I hate having to walk in the sun and risk myself getting a shade or two darker.

I am not fair but I wish I was, so I try my best to stay out of the sun but that is not always possible. I have also been taking the Hakubi White C Whitening Supplements, however I do not take it regularly because I often forget *3 times a day is a bit too much for me I opted for something similar which only required me to take it once daily before meals *mornings are the best time for me, as I will be stuck in the kitchen preparing the kids school supplies, so I will surely remember.  Taa Daa, I am please to introduce CeleBeute Tx

[Lip & Co] Put on some Lip Tint, Live a Little

I'm one of those that doesn't really fancy lipstick, I can have full makeup on and then leave my lips bare. 😂 I only wear lipstick on special occasions such as a photoshoot or an event, but I love lip tints. I always feel that lip tints are lighter on the lips, the dry up and stay on the lips, without needing much touch ups (the reason why I don't fancy Lipsticks)

Horien Eye Secret Contact lenses, makes your Eyes Shine Brighter

You know how contact lenses actually make your eye look instantly brighter and livelier? well , yes that is a fact. I have tried out many brands of contact lens but I have not found one that is comfortable enough to wear for more than 12 hours. I do not put on contact lenses on a everyday basis, I do it only when I have an event or when I need to look good. I have rather a rather big Iris where some contact lenses I’ve tried in the past actually block my vision. Is that even possible?  I don’t know but it did.

Get Fairer and Stay Fair with Hakubi White C

You must already know my love  for Japanese Products even tho I've not stepped foot into Japan!. I've always told the hubs that the day I stepped foot into Japan it's going to be a one way ticket! I don't ever wanna come back here. I’m always happy  to be given the chance you review Japanese products. Today I would like to share my opinions on HAKUBI WHITE C series from Sato.  HAKUBI WHITE C series is from Sato, which is a Japanese pharmaceutical company that was founded in 1915. That's 103 years of experience.

So let's get to it! Let me make it clear that I am not tanned, I would say that I have rather fair skin tone. I do have pigmentation tho.  HAKUBI WHITE C is formulated with L-Cysteine, Vitamin C and B6. These super ingredients promises glowing skin from inside tha We all know the importance of Vitamin C for skin whitening, I guess that's why I'm fair. I have been taking Vitamin C tablets for the longest time and stopped 2 years ago. I think I really should start taking it back. Vitamin C helps whiten the skin by inhibiting the production of Tyrosinase which suppresses the production of melanin.

I was given these two products to review.
Hakubi White C Plus: Oral Consumption
Hakubi C Gel: Topical Use

It's a tube of clear gel that is formulated with Vitamin C and Licorice Extract. The HAKUBI C GEL repairs the skin from the outside. It permeates the skin, and slows down melanin production which will help getting rid of blemishes and pigmentation. I like how it's very lightweight and dries up very quickly without leaving a sticky feeling. I have been using this for the past one month every morning and night and I noticed that my blemishes and spots has significantly lighten

This comes in the forms of pills and contains 180 pills in a bottle. These little pills will whiten your skin from the inside. The pills are very small in size so it's easy to swallow and they do look a little like sweets so do keep it out of children's reach. HAKUBI WHITE C PLUS contains Vitamin C, L-Cysteine, Vitamin B6 and Calcium Pantothenate. It is recommended to be taken after meals and you've to take them 3 times daily (ages 15 onwards). The bottle is rather compact however I still find it very troublesome to be bringing it out. I have to be honest with you that I have not been very discipline in taking this, as I often forget to bring it out or forget to take it. I wish it could be just day and night, that way I won't forget.

You can find Hakubi White C Plus 180’s (RM122.85, GST inclusive) and Hakubi White C Gel (RM97.41, GST inclusive) at all Sasa outlets and selected Watsons outlets throughout Malaysia, or if you are like me you can purchase it online via Watson Online Store.

Till the next post! Stay Y-O-U!

Koreans are well known for their glowing skin, and I believe that the Korean women achieve that through a unique regimen which is rather extensive. Today, we have access to products that has similar functions and less extensive in terms of steps. Lol. Achieving healthy radiance from within is not a dream anymore. What is the key to a more radiant, smoother, firmer and moist? A simple 4 Steps is the answer. Nourish. Hydrate. Whiten. Regenerate.

Do Dermal Fillers work for Dark Circles?

"The eyes are the mirror of the soul”, so this is the first feature that people notice about you when they first meet you. It all depends on the eyes to see if the soul of the other party catches fire or not…*ahem A pair of eyes can tell many tales, age, emotion, health are among the few. Wrinkles show up very quickly around the eye area too. Don’t get me wrong, I love the way my eyes are, it is afterall the only feature I have that I am really proud of. I have what you call a ‘Phoenix Eyes’ but behind every beauty there is some kind of pain. *Ok, I know too much drama already  Alright, you know how much I crave flawless skin and I know I am not going to achieve it because of for the longest time I have been battling with Dark Eye Circles and Eye Bags. If there is a make up I cannot live without that would be my Concealers, notice the ‘s’! One concealer won’t work on me. That is how bad. I have to stress on this so that you know how bad it is! These are all caused by  caused by a variety of different reasons, including diet, lifestyle, stress, dehydration and genetics, tho most of the time I blame it on genetics. So, correcting this problem is one of the things that I have always wanted to do but did not have the courage to do so. I finally found the courage after years of battling with my concealers.

Tropika Face Cleansing Oil

I am sure we all constantly seek to improve our skincare routine, I try not to miss any steps in my daily skincare routine no matter how tired I am, but let’s be honest to ourselves. Tell the truth and shame the devil. After a long and tiring day, I do sometimes just skip it all and only use a cleanser and moisturizer. So the cleansing part is very important. I am currently using a few cleanser of which are gel, foam and also milk cleansers. I received the Tropika Face Cleansing Oil, an oil based facial cleanser. Interesting. I have never tried an oil based cleaners prior to this, even my make up remover is water base. I was excited to tried it.

LadyKin Fresh Watermelon Icing Gel Bar Review [Skincare Tips Inside]

K-Beauty products are amongst the most innovative in terms of packaging. I joined the Selfiegram which was organized by The Butterfly Project during the SEO+C Workshop *more on that soon  last week and I got my hands on this really cute bottle of gel!  The LadyKin Fresh Watermelon Icing Gel Bar’s, which looks like a watermelon popsicle. It is so fun to bring this out with me, because everyone always stares at it then ask me “What’s that?” *pointing to the bottle which I purposely place on the table, “Oh this? Ice cream for my face; too hot”  and I’ll leave them wondering for a bit before I tell them more.

Hydro Sun Essence SPF50+ PA+++, Lightweight Non Greasy Sunscreen

Believe it or not, I seldom use sunscreen on my face. I know it's important, especially when I'm living in a tropical country but most sunscreen I've used has that sticky feeling and I hate having a sticky face. It's not glam at all. Some sunscreen even made me look like a ghoul because of the white cast effects, it's not Halloween everyday or else I won't mind looking like a ghoul. 😂 Recently the nice people at The Butterfly Project handed me something that has made me change my perception of sunscreen forever. Yes. Forever.

It's the Ultra Hydro Sun Essence SPF50+ PA+++. 30ml. This little baby is made from 61% of Hawaii Kona Deep Sea Water alongside 30 kinds of ocean plant extracts and 45 kinds of plant extracts. It is also free from Paraben, Phenoxyethanol, Triethanolamine, Mineral oil, Artificial flavouring agents, Artificial colours, Benzophenone.

MAYTERLYNN, Sweet Potato and Oat Bran Beverage Mix

Hi you! How has October been treating you? October has been good, except for the incident that Vegas broke the lens of our camera. Lol. Our bad for not putting things back where they belong. We had to get a new lens or else we won’t be able to take pretty pictures, which triggered me to write this post.

Beauty is not only on the outside, it's not just about your looks, or about your size. Beauty is a little of everything. Beauty is a kind of radiance, people who possess a true inner beauty, their eyes are a little brighter, skin a little more dewy. They vibrate at a different frequency says Cameron Diaz. It is true. Yes, the camera can capture what's on the outside but not what's on the inside. Your internal beauty will reflect on your face.
