[BEAUTY] Cellnique Reverse Venom Essence Review

Friday, November 21, 2014


Hey all my dear merry-goers~ How have all of you been doing? Thanks for reading and following my blog :) 

Today I'm going to talk about one issue that most of us especially ladies worry about which is the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles! Yeah I know some of you may feel that you are still young and won't be troubled by this issue but girls out there do you know that fine lines and wrinkles don't only appear once you get old? You can get fine lines even when you are still very young. 

Fine lines and wrinkles appear due to many reasons which may include aging, sun damage, acne, injury and even gravity. Yes you heard me right! Gravity also causes our skin to start sagging if we do not take care of it properly. Skin dehydration or over-exposing your skin to the sun also causes this problem. 



Well, not to worry because today I am here to share with all my merry-goers a solution to this problem. Introducing Cellnique Reversal Venom Essence which has the addition of Syn-Ake and Ceramide Complex. Wait... what?? What on earth is Syn-Ake and Ceramide Complex? Well...



As you can see, Syn-Ake and the Ceramide complex is excellent in smoothing and relaxing the facial muscles which helps to reverse the signs of aging and smooth out all those wrinkles and creases. Well just imagine our skin to be a sheet of white linen. By not taking care of it well, our skin gets fine lines and wrinkles over the years but now with these active ingredients, it's like the Reversal Venom Essence irons and smooths out all the creases in our skin to restore our skin to its youthful appearance!

[EVENT] "Beat The Gush" with the New Kotex Soft & Smooth Launch

Wednesday, November 19, 2014



Sorry guys out there but today's post will be a little more for girls! But feel free to read on to understand us ladies better. 

Pretty merry-goers out there, how many of you face sudden gushes that is not only unexpected and unpleasant but also disrupt your plans for the day? You know that feeling that some of us may name is the "waterfall" feeling? That feeling that comes every month that sends you rushing to the ladies room to check? I'm sure like me, you all definitely HATE that awful feeling. 

These sudden gushes are a common experience during our monthly periods which can happen at any time of the day especially when there is sudden movement like getting up from a chair or climbing a flight of stairs. This not only causes discomfort to us but also cause an anxiety and stress to check for leakages when it occurs thus making us less confident to carry on our daily jobs. 

How many times do you have to turn around and check if there are any stains on your back or asking your friend to check? Worst scenario, going out on a date with your crush and finding out you had a leakage. Oh how embarrassing!


Well now you don't have to worry anymore!! Kotex has just unveiled their new and improved Kotex Soft & Smooth which has been designed to help "Beat the Gush"! Kotex is proud to offer this solition to women all around the world so that women can face the day with confidence! 

The three main features of the new Kotex Soft & Smooth are:



Besides launching the new Kotex Soft & Smooth, Kotex has also kicked off their 'Beat the Gush' campaign! This campaign is supported by confident women who believe in seizing the day and not allowing anything, even sudden gushes to get in their way! They include the pretty celebrity Diana Danielle, popular Instagrammer Qistina Shah (@sqistinashah) and Low Ngai Yuen, founder and president of WOMEN:girls 

I was invited to their Social Media Launch at Terrace, Curve by dear blogger Aerisk and had a blast with Kotex and fellow bloggers! Totally love the setup that they provided especially the huge photobooth and the props which were huge Kotex pads! 





Together with fellow bloggers Sherry and Elana! 






They also prepared a short skit which showed how sudden gushes could ruin that perfect date! Super funny and realistic acting from the actors! So guys out there, do try to understand us girls when that time of the month comes. 



Aileen See, the Marketing Manager at Kimberly-Clark Malaysia sharing with us the latest features of the new Kotex Soft & Smooth as well as sharing the brand's vision as a leader in feminine care that Kotex understands how life can have it's sudden gushes and that we can't allow these sudden gushes to stop us from doing what we want to do. 



The lovely emcee of the night was Julie Woon which was really bubbly and entertained us well! Super friendly and I've been like watching her on 8tv Quickie! 



The star of the night was celebrity Diana Danielle who shared with us her sudden gushes story and her view on the campaign. She believes that 'Beat the Gush' campaign has a larger meaning and believe it is a wonderful positive attitude which will see women through the unexpected moments in life. Together with her was a representative from WOMEN:girls, a non-profit platform to empower women and girls to acknowledge their potential and realize their dreams.

[BEAUTY]: Beauty Talk Be White Double Cleansing Gel Review

Thursday, November 13, 2014



Ola~ Merry-goers! It's been a long week and I'm back with another product review thanks to HiShop and Beauty Talk! I have previously reviewed the OxySolution from Beauty Talk which really made me a fan of the brand. You can check out my review HERE. It was a bubble mouse cleanser which worked as a makeup remover too! 




Well, I was given another Beauty Talk product to review and share with all of you beauties out there and this time it is the Be White Double Cleansing Gel! I've heard good reviews about this product so I couldn't wait to test it out for all of you to know!



DAILY GENTLE, BALANCING AND HYDRATING DUAL EFFECT CLEANSER

This product is packaged in a simple orange coral bottle and has a pump to dispense the product. I like the pump as it is really convenient for me to estimate how much product I need and it is also more hygienic. I just need to press down once or twice on the pump when I want to use the product. 





So let's see if this cleansing gel really works as well as it claims!
I just came back from a great beauty event which I will blog about soon and I totally love the natural makeup makeover that I had that day. Really did not want to waste the makeup but at the end of the day I still needed to remove it so here it is!






Here's something different about the Beauty Talk Be White Double Cleansing Gel which is the consistency and the texture. I have to say at first I thought it was just a normal gel cleanser but I was in for a surprise!

[BEAUTY]: E.V.E. All-In-1 Bar Review

Thursday, November 06, 2014


Beauty time my dear merry-goers! Do you know that it is very important to choose the correct cleanser for your skin that helps remove impurities but does not strip off all that natural oil on your skin? Well, E.V.E, an acronym for Elegant, Vogue and Energetic has formulated a All-In-1 bar which is suitable for all skin types



This Miracle All-In-1 Bar helps to recapture the beautiful look and feel of a younger and healthier skin. E.V.E is formulated with E.V.E POTENT INGREDIENTS – Austrian Deep Moor, PhytoCellTec Malus Domestica, Aloe Vera, Virgin Coconut Oil, Ionic Colloidal Silver, Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin C & Algae Extract!

All these ingredients are really good for the skin and is all natural too! 


       

The All-In-1 Bar is brown in colour and smells a bit sweet. I actually cut the bar into 4 pieces so that it will last longer. One part of the soap that I cut up can be used up to at least one week.      



So it was time for me to try out the E.V.E All-in-1 Bar. Some of the skin problem I have would be slight redness around the nose area and also the cheeks. Had a couple of hectic weeks so the skin condition was not at it's best. 

The E.V.E All-in-1 Bar is really easy and convenient to use. Just wet the bar and lather it with your palm until you get some white suds.

     


Then just gently massage it on your face and your neck area. Do take note that this cleanser bar is gentle and suitable to be used on any type of skin. Just rinse it off with running water as usual and follow up with your other skincare products!

[FOOD] : The Porki Society @ Seapark, PJ Food Review

Monday, November 03, 2014


Feeling hungry my dear merry-goers? It's the start of the week and I'm back with another food review for you all to check out! Heard of Boat Noodles? The craze of Boat Noodles started with an outlet at Empire Damansara where the queues are super long and tons of fans have been going there to try out the signature Boat Noodles. Boat Noodles are actually a Thai cuisine which is rice noodles with beef or pork (and sometimes offal) in a brown broth which contains cinnamon,star anise and sometimes blood. It is spicy and sour. They are sold in bowls and in small quantities which makes them cheap to consume. One bowl in Malaysia is about RM 1.90. Cheap right? Due to this craze, there have been several Boat Noodle shops which have been popping up in the Klang Valley. 

Two weeks ago, I was invited to the soft launch of yet another Boat Noodle enterprise called The Porki Society. This establishment is located at Seapark, nearby the ever famous Burger Lab. From the name itself, I knew I was going to be indulging in porky bites!




 

The interior of The Porki Society was decorated nicely with some street-inspired decoration. There were Coca-cola bottles, wooden tables and chairs as well as hanging lightbulbs. The place could fit around 60 to 80 people on a full night. 

The Porki Society implements an open-kitchen system where you can see how your food is being prepared. This is quite a good concept to use as patrons can see the cleanliness of the food however, good ventilation is really needed for this to work especially for the grilling and barbecuing. Thank goodness, The Porki Society had good ventilation so that we do not smell like BBQ pork on our way out.


Condiments







So let's move on to the menu. As the name implies, all the dishes in The Porki Society are made with pork. The main food will be the Boat Noodles where you can choose either the dry or soup version and also with either thick or thin rice vermicelli. We were served with Coca-cola before making our order. It's classic how they served glass bottled ones instead of the conventional drink dispenser. Totally brings out the feel of olden times and street food. 



There are 5 different side dishes and a dessert which you can order to pair with your boat noodles. First up is the Cap Moo Pork Rinds (RM 1.90). This are super snacks to much on while waiting for your food. They are crunchy and not dripping with oil. Taste like pork fritters. However, they are rather tasteless as well and taste best when dipped in some dipping sauce.



While enjoying your Boat Noodles, you can order a side of Moo Too Porki (RM3.90). This is really very tasty and reminds me of our Chinese BBQ pork. Grilled nicely, it was not too tough and was still slightly pink. The dish was well marinated as well. I couldn't stop picking at this side dish.
