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.

Review: Oxy Oil Control Mattifying Gel, a quick and easy fix for oily skin

We all know how the universe works. Dry skin girl wanted oily skin and oily skin girl would do anything for a matte skin. Although I complain a lot on my skin type, deep down inside me I’m grateful for having a skin without wrinkles. By now I have accepted my oily skin but I never stop looking for any product that is able to reduce sebum secretion on my face.

I remember a few months ago I was asking around a drugstore if any of the brand have any product to control oil sebum. I’ve also tried walking up and down the aisle, eagle eyeing on each and every single bottle on the shelf but nothing. That was until a month ago when Oxy sent me a mystery tube. I thought it’s a cleanser. It’s too small to be a cleanser and then I saw the word “Oil Control Mattifying Gel” and I find myself skipping in happiness.

Oxy Oil Control Mattifying Gel was designed to act as a quick and easy fix for oily skin. This gel works by mattifying the skin in immediate upon application. Boy I was already excited hearing that. I have a concern that the layer will dry out my skin due to the mattifying properties on the skin but Oxy said that this Oil Control Mattifying Gel contain a new Triple Oil Control System that also provides 24 hours of hydration to the skin, minimizing the appearance of pores while controlling the shine on the face.

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 🙂

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.

Review: Hada Labo New Face Wash Launched With 3 Variants – Hydra & Whitening, Deep Clean & Pore Refining and Deep Clean & Blemish Control Face Wash

What attract me to Hada Labo shelf in the drugstore is the packaging. I’m a fan of the color white especially when it comes to beauty related stuff, just like the blog layout. I thought it looked clean :D. Another distinctive attraction of the brand Hada Labo is all the Japanese writing on the front tube of the bottle or tube. It’s like a mystery as I can’t read Japanese but somehow attracted to it. The Japs make good skin care and makeup don’t you think so? 😉

Asian skin type and need are unique and different due to the climate and environment surrounding. Hada Labo recognized these differences and came up with different types of cleanser previously for example Moisturizing Face Wash, es Foaming Wash, AHA/BHA Cleansing and Whitening Face Wash. Just last month Hada Labo launched three new face wash products, and so I was sent these Hada Labo New Face Wash to try out. Maybe Hada Labo sense that I was running out of cleanser eh?

Just the other day I was telling my friends over Facebook that I wash my face three times a day and my friend said it’s too much. I disagree, because I have oily skin and my three times of washing only include morning after waking up, double cleanse after removing makeup and just before I go to sleep. These three times are the main face washing that I can’t skip, or I’ll end up with a face that I could even fried up an egg lol.

Review: Neal’s Yard Remedies Purifying Palmarosa Essentials Kit

A few months ago I shared with you my first time experience with the brand Neal’s Yard Remedies which you can read from this link. There is one particular product that I couldn’t stop asking about which is the Purifying Palmarosa Mattifier. That product itself cost RM220 for a small 30ml! Yikes! I am not someone that will buy straight away without trying it out first. Good news for me, Neal’s Yard Remedies carries a few essentials kit including Purifying Palmarosa Essentials Kit. You’ve guessed it right. This kit contain a 10ml of Purifying Palmarosa Mattifier 😀

This review is going to be a quick one. But I promise you it’s a good one 😉
