Are you one of the people who got sucked in with Facebook ads? I never do until the Naka Kirei Enzyme ad came out and it created lots of hype around it. So I did a little digging on my own because I was super curious with the whole enzyme thing and how it can help with the wellness on the inside. As you know I’m all about living a healthy lifestyle and I’m wondering if my body is really lack of enzymes to help with whatever it is. I placed my order with one eye closed because of the price, which I’ll explain in a bit. When I talk about Naka Kirei Enzyme with my friends, I had a hard time explaining what it is. So I tell my friends that it’s something you pop half an hour before meal so that you don’t gain weight LOL. In a way it is what was claimed but the real fact is that it has more than just that.
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 ❤️
Now that the weather is getting pretty hot and sunny, this would be the best time for me to tell you about this Limited Edition ESCADA Fiesta Carioca fragrance. Think of the summer, beach holiday, the smell of sunblock, the coconuty smell of piña colada. Think of all the tropical fruits you are enjoying by the beach while sun tanning. That’s what ESCADA Fiesta Carioca scent reminds me of.
The ESCADA Fiesta Carioca is a limited edition release in honor of the 25th anniversary of ESCADA’s Summer Limited Edition fragrances. It is released in celebration of life, summer and passion. The beautiful ombré bottle really does embodied summer. The fragrance overall was inspired by Brazilian carioca and their unique zest for life and colorful festivities. Hence the bottle flacon.
Gucci make the best fragrances out there. They hardly or almost never got it wrong, for me that is. I am a fan. Every single Gucci fragrance I own are my most favourite among all. Just don’t ask me to choose my favourite among the favs as I would have a problem with it 😀 . Gucci Flora, one of Gucci most sought after fragrance is said to be targeting younger audience. With all the floral motives going on and the cutesy bow on the bottle neck, I can see why. It is dubbed as a subtle but yet sophisticated, floral fragrance that are inspired by princesses from the past, present, and future. Fast forward to early 2017, Gucci launched a Gucci Flora Gorgeous Gardenia Limited Edition scent. Eeeekkk! I love limited edition scent!
Scent is a personal preference. I cannot stress this enough here in Street Love. Some like it floral, some like it fruity, some like it woody, some like it musky. This makes us human. You’re not weird, not nonsense. You just have a different preference as everybody else. I may like floral and you may like fruity but that does not mean I can call you crazy. No, you’re not. So don’t be afraid to say it out that the scent does not suit you. Because that is what happened at Gucci Guilty Absolute media launch.
I did not like Gucci Guilty Absolute’s leathery and earthy scent and I was referred to as the weird one. Oh please.
I do not have time for the drama because I need to tell you about this new men fragrance. Let’s save our breath for that shall we? 🙂
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.
