Review: Skin Care Skin Care - Hydrating Skin Care - Oil Control Skin Care - Toner Yadah

Yadah Pure Green 3-Step Moisture Care: Oily skin is well-hydrated, water & oil level is balanced, keeping sebum under control

There are some products that work so well on the first one or two application that makes me just wanna shout to the whole world about it but not this time. This time I make sure I really REALLY really test the whole range out properly and under different circumstances. You know, just want to make sure it wasn’t any false alarm 🙂

You guys, after years of searching…I finally found the perfect moisturizing skin care range that works for my oily skin condition. Like I said, I took my sweet time testing the NEW Yadah Pure Green 3-Step Moisture Care out just to confirm that this is it. Thus the delay in the review.

Yadah Pure Green
Simplicity is what I’m into right now. Yadah Pure Green 3-Step Moisture Care is a simple 3-step skin care regime that nourishes the skin with nutrients from Royal Jelly, one of nature’s most powerful nutrients to help regenerate skin cells and lock in moisture for up to 24 hours. I know most moisturizing or hydrating skin care claim the same if not similar but I can totally attest to the claim. Pure Green range is formulated with rich antioxidants to restore strength, suppleness and healthy radiance to dry skin. Remember I always said that when the skin is well-hydrated, the more resilient it is to environmental aggressors and skin problem.

Hada Labo Review: Skin Care Skin Care - Firming Skin Care - Hydrating Skin Care - Toner Skin Care - Wrinkle / Fine Lines

Hada Labo Retinol Lifting + Firming Lotion: Anti-aging toner with intense hydration? Interesting!

Fans of Hada Labo Retinol Lifting + Firming range would be delighted to know that Hada Labo recently improvised the whole anti-aging range by adding in exclusive cutting-edge technology known as the Insta-3D Moisture-Lock Technology into the formula. It is a combination of 4 types of Hyaluronic Acid  – 3D Hyaluronic Acid, Nano Hyaluronic Acid, Super Hyaluronic Acid and Hyaluronic Acid that linked together to form a 3D moisture net that works by deeply moisturizing the skin and wrapping the skin in order to lock-in moisture for continuous hydration.

I have here with me the Hada Labo Retinol Lifting + Firming Lotion. Although I have no fine lines or any signs of aging at the moment, honestly at my age I would prefer this over Super Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizing Lotion. People say, prevention is always better than cure 😀

Hada Labo Retinol Lifting + Firming Lotion
The whole Retinol Lifting + Firming range consists of five products namely Retinol Lifting + Firming Lotion, Retinol Lifting + Firming Milk, Retinol Lifting + Firming Essence, Retinol Lifting + Firming Cream and Retinol Lifting + Firming Mask. Hada Labo products are known for it’s iconic moisturizing factor so what’s so special about the new upgraded range eh? The 3D Hyaluronic Acid that I’ve mentioned above is Hada Labo’s latest discovery to lock-in moisture for even longer time. As a result, skin stays soft, supple and smooth for a longer period.

Review: Skin Care SK-II Skin Care - Anti-Ageing Skin Care - Firming Skin Care - Hydrating Skin Care - Oil Control Skin Care - Wrinkle / Fine Lines

SK-II Facial Treatment Essence: Does my skin improved after going through 2-bottles? Surprise ahead

Let’s face it. Everyone wants a crystal clear skin. Who doesn’t right? I never imagine myself having crystal clear skin. I’m not born with a good skin to begin with and the problems I have just make everything seems impossible. I’m sure you remember watching SK-II’s luring TVC of the iconic Facial Treatment Essence. SK-II advertisement never fail to make me go gaga. It is the one product that I’ve been dying to try. Let me repeat that. DYING TO TRY. What stop me from doing so? To be honest with you, all the reviews online freaks me out big time. Some people suffer allergy attack, some suffer withdrawal effect and some said their skin is worse than before. Why do these people sounded as if Facial Treatment Essence is like an acid anyway? Thanks to SK-II Malaysia last year, I was given the opportunity to undergo Magic Ring Skin Analysis. Not only I learnt about my skin real age and problems, I also braved myself and ask for a Facial Treatment Essence sample to try. I just needed to find out if I will develop any allergy from it. Well, the rest is history. I have purchase two bottles of Facial Treatment Essence since Magic Ring Skin Analysis.

SK-II Facial Treatment Essence 1
Facial Treatment Essence or “Miracle Water” as they’re widely known as is SK-II’s signature product. It is actually an essence but misunderstood by most people as a lotion/toner, I would say probably from the patting application on the TVC previously. The essence itself contain over 90% Pitera™, the miracle ingredient discovered over 30 years ago that remains essentially unchanged till today. Pitera is a naturally-derived liquid from the yeast fermentation process. The history goes all the way back to 1970s, when a scientist in Japan visited a Japanese saké brewery and noticed the elderly workers had wrinkled faces, but extraordinarily soft and youthful-looking hands. Then they realised these workers are constantly in contact with sake fermentation process thus the soft youthful hands.

Oxy Deep Cleansing Wash & Oxy Blemish Control Moisturiser SPF15: A simple routine for the breakout prevention

I’m still not quite out of the whitening olympic yet and not quite changing course to anti-aging range yet but there is another range that is kinda new to me that I’ve been using on an off for the past one month. At the age I am now *cough* I’m indulging my skin more with whitening and anti-aging range. Anti-blemish range is probably the last on my mind. Having said that, I never say no to prevention. When it comes to anti-blemish, no one has the most experience in this matter than Oxy. Let me share with you one very simple anti-blemish range that I’m currently rotating – Oxy Deep Cleansing Wash & Oxy Blemish Control Moisturiser SPF15. This new Double Acne Formula gives 2X the acne fighting powder and 2X the confidence.

Event GLAMGLOW® Review: Skin Care Skin Care - Anti-Ageing Skin Care - Firming Skin Care - Hydrating Skin Care - Masks Skin Care - Oil Control Skin Care - Pores Concern Skin Care - Wrinkle / Fine Lines

Hollywood’s backstage secret – GLAMGLOW Youthmud and GLAMGLOW Supermud changed the way I look at mud mask treatment altogether (Part 1)

You know how Hollywood celebrities get an instant camera ready skin in just 10-minutes? Well, I have no idea at all until I get to know GLAMGLOW upclose a few weeks ago when I spot the brand on shelf at Sephora KLCC. I also found out that all American Idol contestants and even Dancing With The Stars contestants is using GLAMGLOW mud mask treatment backstage before going on stage. You have no idea how huge GLAMGLOW is in the States. It’s a big thing there. Aren’t we glad that we can now get our hands on the highly raved GLAMGLOW here in Malaysia eh?

I’ve tried, tested and used all three GLAMGLOW Youthmud, GLAMGLOW Supermud and GLAMGLOW Brightmud for a good one month now. Let me warn you ahead that this review post is going to be picture heavy (because I need to show you how awesome it is) and words heavy. I’ll try to talk less so that it is easier for you. Just make yourself a cup of tea or coffee before you start reading on 🙂

GlamGlow 7
Oh and something unexpected happened. I was whisked to an exclusive media preview event just one month ago. I’ve actually booked myself three media event for that particular day and I was glad to make it for this GLAMGLOW preview event early morning. I didn’t realize that I’ll be meeting both the Co-Founders and CEO’s of GLAMGLOW. I’ve only seen their pictures on the product pamphlet and website so imagine my surprise when I get to meet Glenn and Shannon Dellimore face to face. I was like “hey, that’s Glenn and Shannon from GLAMGLOW website” 😀 . Website because I vividly remember about them after reading from GLAMGLOW website.

Clarins Event Review: Skin Care Skin Care - Hydrating Skin Care - Whitening

Clarins New White Plus Total Luminescent Day and Night Duo, a complete hydrating brightening action that optimize millions of “micro-mirrors” in every layer of the skin to reflect light

The beginning of 2014 is also a brand new beginning for Clarins whitening range whereas the brand recently has completed it’s reformulation of White Plus HP to White Plus Total Luminescent. Not sure if you are aware but last year Clarins starting to embark onto this new breakthrough technology by reformulating all of their whitening products except for Whitening Repairing Night Cream. Now the new range is complete.

Contrary to Caucasian living in a much more colder climate than Asian where we are constantly exposed to sunny and hot weather all year round. It only make sense that Asian women often long for a translucent and fairer complexion that is also smooth and even skin tone at the same time. Clarins understand that need and is now emphasising more on achieving a brighter and luminescent skin.

Clarins New White Plus Total Luminescent Day and Night Duo 1
Research done by Clarins shows that it’s breakthrough technology reveals that the skin is made up of millions of “micro-mirrors” that have the ability to reflect light. With this research result on hand, Clarins New White Plus Total Luminescent range is infused with unique “Trans Luminescent Complex” to revive skin’s micro-mirrors, ability to achieve ultimate translucency, even, fair and healthy looking rosy luminescent complexion.
