L’Occitane Pivoine Sublime Skin Tone Perfecting Cream SPF 20: Adapting a French CC Cream for the no makeup makeup look

My friends find me weird when I told them I am not into BB Cream but I am a huge CC Cream fan. That is because I used to have very oily skin and BB Cream makes my skin even oilier, and CC Cream in general are more matte thus the love for CC Cream. Let’s just say I have better luck with CC Cream than BB Cream in the past.

When L’Occitane sent me the NEW L’Occitane Pivoine Sublime Skin Tone Perfecting Cream SPF 20 (aka CC Cream), I was jumping up and down like a kid high on sugar.

The NEW L’Occitane Pivoine Sublime Skin Tone Perfecting Cream SPF 20 comes in two shades – Light and Medium. The one I have is Light and it matches my skin tone perfectly.

L’Occitane Pivoine Sublime Perfecting Mist: Feeding the face mist craving with a touch of peony flower for the mid-day fix on the go

In my mind I already had a plan to review the NEW L’Occitane Pivoine Sublime Perfecting Mist together with Pivoine Sublime Skin Tone Perfecting Cream SPF 20 (CC Cream) and photos were already taken a month ago but when I look back at my photos, I had to kick myself for forgetting to take a photo of both products together. So that explains why I will only talk about Pivoine Sublime Perfecting Mist alone today without the CC Cream. But fret not, the review for CC Cream will follow next 😉

Now let’s turn our attention back to one of my current craze at the moment – face mist. I am so into face mist now. The L’Occitane Pivoine Sublime Perfecting Mist landed on my desk at the right time.

You might think all face mist are more or less the same. Well, true to an extend but I always believe each face mist are different or unique in their own way. Pivoine Sublime is one of the many range under L’Occitane. Not all of the range under the brand has a face mist. The Pivoine Sublime Perfecting Mist happened to be a new extension under the range. This face mist is a multi-purpose beauty mist that refreshes, beautify, tone, hydrates, helps to refine skin texture and fixes make-up at any time of the day. Sounds like a all-in-one wonder face mist, eh?

Baccarat November 2014 X L’Occitane Divine Skincare Gift Set

Last month, I’ve shared with you on Facebook that Malaysia Tatler October 2014 + Weddings 2014 issue are giving away L’Occitane Divine Skincare Gift Set worth RM250 and that I didn’t get any as I wasn’t feeling excited about paying RM30 for one heck of a heavy magazine that comes with a deluxe size L’Occitane set. Lucky for me because last Wednesday I went to KLCC for SK-II event and I found out that Baccarat November 2014 is also giving away the same L’Occitane Divine Skincare Gift Set worth RM250. And it only cost RM15. Now, that’s more like it.

I didn’t plan on blogging about this but there isn’t much action going on with magazine GWP for the past few months so I thought I could spice up my magazine GWP entry for the blog a bit otherwise there will be spider web forming lol.

I’m not sure if I’m into the box more or L’Occitane content more. I sure am more excited looking at the cute box though haha. Oh and each box is wrapped with a plastic bag.

A Pleasant Sunday Morning Casual Shopping Trip and My Haul

I haven’t been doing a haul post, haven’t I? I’ve been a good girl for the past three months ever since I quit my job and stays at home for a short break. I do buy small little thing like RM5 Daiso Eye Brow Pencil, RM5 Daiso brush holder or RM23 The Brush Guard but there was no major haul that could break the bank. Now that I’m going back to work soon, I’ve slowly started with my usual Sunday beauty shopping at KLCC and yesterday I gave myself a day off and spend a tiny bit of money on some stuff.

This is my haul.

Tips: How To Achieve a Soft and Smooth Heels

Oh man. I seems to be hit by one problem follow by another one and another one. Not sure if you ever heard about this myth before, I used to hear about people getting cracked heels from wearing strappy high heels often. Okay, here’s the thing. I’ve been wearing strappy high heels all my life. Nope. I don’t find my foot to be drier than usual nor do I suffer any cracked heels. Then I develop a new profound love for pumps so I stopped wearing strappy high heels. But because I have rather large foot, narrow pump hurt my toes a lot. So once in a while I take a breather or rather a break from pump to strappy high heels.

A few months ago I notice that my foot is rather err…ugly, dry and cracked. I asked my mum if this is cracked heels and mum said “oh yeah, that’s certainly cracked heels”. I panicked, then I make my brain work overtime for a home solution. Lucky for me, I have the tools at home, tried one very simple solution and it works well on me. Here’s my version of achieving a soft and smooth heels.

All The Stress Calls For A Sunday Retail Therapy

Sorry for the lack of update in the blog and Facebook recently. I am in the midst of buying a new car and selling off my current car all by myself which explains the mood swing, headache and chaos. It doesn’t help when JPJ changed all the buying and selling law again and again. All this is taking lots of my time. I hardly have time to sit down, what more photograph products and blog. Work on the other hand is not running as smoothly as I expected it to be. I have launched a new interactive automotive magazine app a few months ago and getting all the conventional car manufacturer to buy the totally new idea is really really tough. My bosses need to see profit right away and the reality is it won’t be that soon. I’m giving myself another two more months time and if all fails I will give in my resignation. Oh well. Life sucks at times. All this is so stressful and tough that I wanted to cry most of the time. I didn’t realized it’s that stress until I pull out one strand of white baby hair each day for the past few days. I don’t have any mood to even shop but this weekend I took time off from everything and drove out for a short shopping trip. Retail therapy is the best therapy of all time 🙂

Here’s what I came home with. I drove to two malls yesterday. Pavilion and KLCC.
