I’m into yuzu these days. To be honest I have no real knowledge on what is yuzu. All I know is they looked like a hybrid between an orange and a lemon lol 😛 . But one thing I can assure you is that yuzu smells amazing. I first fell in love with yuzu scent when I bought a pack of yuzu scented steam eye mask from Singapore last year. That changes everything as anything with yuzu is either expensive or hard to get. However that’s not just the only scent from ShiKai. I mentioned a week or two ago that TNS Skin Lab recently added the brand ShiKai into their array of natural personal care selection. You know what’s better other than ShiKai is all natural? It is Made in the USA and are not tested on animals ❤️
Back in February, I was sent on a 2 days 1 night trip to the beautiful Lexis Hibiscus Port Dickson by Clarins Malaysia for the media preview of the new Body Fit Anti-Cellulite Contouring Expert. You may want to read this if you missed out on the whole shenanigans. It was a media trip, with no other blogger spotted except for one. It was as if the trip was put together for me because first of all it is Clarins, my first skincare brand which is also the brand that got me started on beauty blogging, and then there was fitness. You know fitness is a part of my lifestyle besides beauty so this is just perfect. Plus I get to get away from the busy city for 2 days.
Clarins is known to improvised and reformulate their product and packaging every few years. The last revamp for Body Fit was in 2013 if I’m not mistaken. It was known as Body Lift back them. I remember I was handed a bottle at the end of White Plus Total Luminescent event and it was the bottle I have till today, before the NEW Body Fit.
Earth Day 2016 falls on the 22nd April but I have celebrated the world’s largest environmental event a few months earlier back in January 2016, thanks to Melvita Malaysia for the launch of Nectar de Miels Body Care range. I have been keeping these new launch for months! I am so glad I am able to tell you about it now 😀
Melvita Nectar de Miels Body Care are catering for dry, very dry and sensitive skin thanks to a special ingredient Thyme Honey. This sort of explained why I was “planting” Thyme herb plant as seen on my Instagram. Melvita done a research and found the exceptional repairing power of thyme honey, which acts like a natural dressing with instant soothing effect. When combined with acacia and orange blossom honeys, it reveals this synergic effect to heal and rescue very dry and sensitive skin. Overall, the body care range consists of three products – Comforting Creamy Milk, Comforting Balm, and Comforting Hand Cream.
The first ever Soap & Glory product that I had enjoyed using and repurchased is the one and only Flake Away. It is also the cheapest body care within the brand (RM39) until I went to Sephora to repurchase a third tub. The price shoot up to RM55! I didn’t repurchase any since then and I’ve been missing Flake Away scent so so much. I can’t remember how or where I found out that Flake Away contain Soap & Glory signature Original Pink™ fragrance. So what else? I went amok with everything that has the exact scent!
When I was at the Sephora Black Card event, I grabbed a bottle of Clean On Me™ Creamy Clarifying Shower Gel. I was looking high and low for The Righteous Butter™ Body Lotion and there was none. I went back the next day with my mum to search again and I only managed to find the mini tub of The Righteous Butter™ Body Butter (RM19). I used the mini tub so moderately, as if it’s the most precious thing in the world. Then luck was on my side. I managed to purchase another bottle of Soap & Glory Clean On Me™ Creamy Clarifying Shower Gel (RM48) and The Righteous Butter™ Body Lotion (RM65) during the first Black Card Private Sale 20% OFF back in October 2014. Everything seems more worth it with 20% OFF isn’t it? 😀
Everybody know I love to “oil-up” from head to toe before I sleep. I’m not someone that like to use body lotion or body butter but because I just love to oil myself up, anything that smell nice works for me. Okay I sounded so wrong saying I love to oil myself up haha! It’s not a secret too that I ABSOLUTELY love anything that bears the oil description. So when I was given a set of Argan Oil series from Body Drench, I was jumping up and down in excitement. I have a good reason for being so.
First thing first. Body Drench had quite a number of different series under their umbrella. The one I’ve been using is the Argan Oil body care series. We’ve heard so much about argan oil but I never used or try one before. According to Wikipedia Argan oil is a plant oil produced from the kernels of the argan tree (Argania spinosa L.), endemic to Morocco, that is valued for its nutritive, cosmetic and numerous medicinal properties. It is commonly referred as “liquid gold”, Argan Oil is an incredibly rich source of Vitamin E and essential fatty acids. It has powerful skin conditioning and anti-aging properties that help keep skin nourished and hydrated.
