Jayeon Sheet Masks Review

Leave a Comment
I first tried Jayeon Mask a few months ago when I bought it through Hermo 612 Sale. I bought the one in Raspberry and of course why? Because it looks aesthetic and its pink. Hah! Then I get the chance to try the other 2 types from Jayeon sheet mask range. I love sheet mask! I will try to wear them when I am doing something and this just make time flies faster and I can do 2 things in one go. As a mom, I need to take care of my family and workloads. Usually, I will wear it after I took a shower and while wearing it, I will do some house chores or some play time with my son. I am going to give a quick review of each mask that I tried here.

Raspberry Brightening Mask
My favourite of all 3! I find that it hydrates very well and makes my skin glow better upon makeup application. Main Active Ingredients: Noni (Improve Skin Health & Anti-oxidant), Raspberry (Protection & Brightening), 6 Types of Plant Extracts: Cornflower, Starflower, Lavender, German chamomile, Clary & Hyacinth.

Pearl Whitening Mask
This mask was just okay. It is not hydrating as the other two. It absorbs less quick and it gives a "glitter" effect on the skin after using it. It claims to help tone up the skin and reduce impurities. Main Active Ingredients: Pearl Extract (Antioxidant & Brightening), Aloe Vera (Soothing & Moisturizing), Witch Hazel (Antioxidant), Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E)

Aloe Hydrating Mask
Super hydrating mask and absorb on the skin like a dream. Best to be used before makeup when your skin feels a bit dry and want some hydrating boost before applying a matte foundation. Key Active Ingredients: Aloe Vera (Moisturizing & Soothing), Licorice (Antioxidant & Brightening), Opuntia Coccinellifera Fruit Extract (Nourishing & Moisturizing), Purslane (Soothing & Moisturizing, Anti-inflammatory & Anti-bacterial), White Mulberry (Brightening & Firming)

B.liv Rose Bloom Face Oil Review

Leave a Comment
As you age, face oil is your best friend. I love to use face oil during my night skincare routine. Recently I give the new essential booster range from B.liv in Rose Bloom a try. Face Oil usually made for all skin types but some concerns you need to know before using it. 

Let's talk about the product first. Rose Bloom it is made from a powerful blend of botanical oil. It helps invigorates skin & fights hydration and fine lines. It is made from real flower petals as you can see, an actual dry flower is in the oil. These real flower petals are hand-picked at the bud stage when it is most potent, and it is infused with a mixture of different oils from Avacado, Jojoba Seed & Camellia Oil. So as mention this has an Avacado oil, which known as a very heavy oil but great at treating dry and itchy skin. Next, Camellia Oil, mostly found in Japanese skincare products. most famous choice of oil for a safe and effective oil for your skin. Then jojoba oil, a great oil that usually fit nicely to your skin, this what makes this Rose Bloom has less oily or uncomfortable feeling when using it. 

I use this after using my essence and before my moisturizer/sleeping mask. I just use 2 drops because I don't want a heavy feeling on my skin when sleeping. It really does makes my skin very hydrated and plumped. As my skin is well hydrated, I find that I enlarge pores are reduced too. The rose scent also gives me a very relaxing routine and such a therapy to us this!

The Rose Bloom 30ml retails for RM69 each. You can purchase B.liv product from their official website https://www.bliv.com/my/ or https://www.hermo.my/brand/199-b-liv

Mamonde All Stay Foundation & Sponge Review

Leave a Comment
Last week I receive this beautiful bouquet of flowers along with these beautiful new products from Mamonde Malaysia. Mamonde is a brand from Korea, famous for their promising skincare products that I personally love. Always inspired by flowers, Mamonde release their new liquid foundation that said claims that this foundation has a smooth texture, long-lasting formula and does not crack throughout the day. Provides SPF 25 to protect your skin from harmful sun rays too. Usually, the foundation comes in a 30ml packaging but this one only comes in a 2oml packaging as it is one of their slim packaging feature that is travel-friendly. 
Choose from 3 different shade which are 21N Ivory, 23N Sand, and 25 Tan. I am not that tan, but my shade in this range is 25 Tan. I tried 23N Sand, but it looks pretty fair for me. As it claims it does not oxidize, that is why I find that it gave a little fair effect to my face.
My review: A little goes a long way. Although its 20ml, you would not need much for your whole face. It claims to be a semi-matte finish foundation but I felt that it is a full matte finish foundation maybe because I have dry skin. It finishes off to a very matte "like powdered". On the first try after applying the foundation, I set it with a translucent powder. I find that my face looks "too matte". The second try, I just leave the foundation as it is, it looks pretty nice. Conclude that this foundation gives a nice matte finish without even need to be set with powder. I tried it last few days and I could say 85% of the foundation lasted on m face and a little bit shine went through around my nose area. 
I also tried the sponge on the 1st try. It was okay, not as soft as I wanted it to be. There is a waterproof layer on the top of it, it is a bit weird and I think I may need more time to experiment with it. The sponge expand when it is damped too. It was an okay sponge, I like my sponge better haha.

The Mamonde All Stay Foundation (RM59, 20ML) can be purchased through the Mamonde Beauty Counters at Aeon 1 Utama, PJ, Aeon Mid Valley Megamall, KL, Parkson Suria KLCC, KL,Aeon Bukit Indah, JB, Aeon Tebrau City, JB, Parkson Gurney Plaza, Penang and Sephora stores located at Mid Valley Megamall, KL, 1 Utama, PJ, IOI City Mall, Putrajaya, Komtar, Johor Bahru, IMAGO Shopping Mall, KK and Nu Sentral, KL. It is also available on Lazada.com.my and hermo.my.

Truly Waterly Cleansing Water by Faith in Face Review

Leave a Comment
Cleansing Water is not a new thing in a skincare routine. Many of us love to include this in their skincare routine and it is a must for anyone who wears makeup every day. This can be the 1st step during your evening skincare routine. It can be used with a cotton pad and helps to remove the "first" level" of the dirt & grime of your skin. Then later you can continue using your favourite cleanser and this routine can be called double cleansing. 
Today I will be reviewing this 💧Truly Waterly Cleansing Water 500ml by the Faith in Face. It is not new actually, but it a new & improve in terms of the packaging & size. The before one is in 300ml bottle. It is Dermatologist & Hypoallergenic Tested. To use this cleansing water, simply pour an adequate amount of the water cleanser on to a cotton pad. I usually use 2-3 layers of it and soak the cotton pad about 80%. Gently sweep off the cotton pad around your face. I usually start around my eye area, removing my eyeshadow, eyebrow makeup and mascara. Then I continue on to the rest of my face until I am satisfied. Tips for around the eyes, gently put the cotton pad around 10-15 seconds and let the cleansing water break down all of the waterproof makeup naturally. the remove it outwards. 
As you can see from the pic above, I tested out removing concealer, cream bronzer, liquid lipsticks, eyeliner & mascara. In 3 swipe, it really helps removes the concealer, cream bronzer, eyeliner & the waterproof mascara. A little effort need to be put on liquid lipsticks as usual. Liquid Lipsticks are really hard to remove right. It does not leave any dry or tight feeling. 
I also run a PH level test. Amazingly this cleansing water has a low PH level (around 5-6). This is great news as this cleansing water is all skin type approved and will leave your skin less irritated! Perfect for sensitive skin too of course. This can also be used as a toner after you have cleansed your face as to what it claims, you will not be required to rinse it after using this. This product is now available at all major Watsons stores nationwide. This product is made in Korea.

Egg White Whip Pore Cleansing Solution Cleanser by Faith in Face Review

Leave a Comment
Pore-bremmatic skin. Ugh. I understand. As I grew older, I tend to have enlarged pores around my cheek area. Egg Yolk is one of the popular ingredients to help pore skin problem. Faith in fface just launched a new cleanser and it is to help reduce clogged pores.This is the Egg White Whip Pore Cleansing Solution Cleanser.
Comes in a squeeze tube bottle with is a plus point for me. I love a cleanser that comes in a packaging like this. Some of the main ingredient listed on the tube are Glycerin, Stearic Acid, Myristic Acid, Lauric Acid, Potassium Hydroxide, PEG-8, Sodium Methyl Cocoyl Taurate, Albumen Extract & Egg Yolk Extract. The cleanser itself is very thick and in touch of water, the lather is pretty foamy.
I have normal to dry skin. I tested this cleanser for a week. My review, it is a bit drying but as I have a solid skincare routine, I manage to balanced my skin moisture properly. It does help makes my skin feels refreshed and clean. I don't experience breakouts or irritation after using this.  I also notice less clogged pores after 2-3 days. I tested this cleanser PH level. It has a PH level of 9. Consider this cleanser has a high level of PH which I don't recommend f you have sensitive skin or dry skin. 
This type of cleanser is best for people who have oily skin and have a solid skincare routine. What is a solid skincare routine? You have practice a routine of a hydrating toner, serum & moisturizer. Which leans your skin barrier this good enough to have this kind of cleanser. The reason behind why this cleaner has high PH is that may be because of the later it created to help deep cleanses your pores. This product is now available at all major Watsons stores nationwide. This product is made in Korea. Make sure to always have a well-hydrated skin! Face mask works well and my favourite sheet mask is also from Faith in Face!

My Beauty Essentials

Leave a Comment
Things have pretty much changed since I got married and become a mom. Motherhood has been the greatest thing that happened in my life and I pretty much enjoyed it. It was not an easy thing but I do learn a lot about things in life. Before I got married, I am all about beauty and makeup. I tried so much stuff and had a few favorites in mind. Skincare are very important to me. Good skin puts me into a good mood. I am going to share with you a few beauty essential that has been my Holy Grail products and helped my skin so much due to my busy lifestyle. When you are a mom, you got to multitask right? I’m getting good about it! Years of trying and learning about skincare, I learn that the best skincare routine I ever tried is the 10-step Korean skincare routine that I learn a few years ago. What it includes are, Makeup Remover, Cleanser, Exfoliate, Toner/Essence, Serum, Spot/Targeted Treatment, Sheet Mask, Eye Cream, Moisturizer, Sun Protection/Sleeping Mask.
Well, that is a whole lot of stuff right? But trust me, it really works and makes a difference. But I ain’t got time for all that in my daily routine. So here are some of the items I include in my skincare routine, and some of them, I have been using it for years! I always start with cleansing. Whenever people asked me for the best skincare recommendations, I always ask first, what are their cleansing routines? A good cleansing routine leads to a better skincare application and result.
So my cleansing routines are at least double cleansing (Makeup Remover wipes & Cleanser). If I got more time, I will do triple cleansing which includes a Makeup Remover Sheet (to remove face makeup, waterproof mascara, eye makeup & lip makeup), Cleansing Balm for the whole face makeup again, making sure all of the clogged dirt & leftover foundation are removed, and lastly, the cleanser. This way, skin are really deeply cleanse so it won’t make your skin clogged and cause skincare are not fully absorbed. My favorite for 7 years, the Biore Makeup Remover Wipes as a start, it removes any kind of makeup effectively. It also hydrates the skin. Then my favourite cleanser has to be the Kiehl's Calendula Deep Cleansing Foaming Face Wash. Both of these product is the perfect combination to a truly cleanse face.
Then I also believe in how important exfoliating is. Up to my 4th jar of these exfoliating pads from Neogen, hands down the best exfoliating experience I ever had. It is easy and effectively makes my skin feels more cleaned and firm. It has 2 side where each side helps in a different way to the skin. After exfoliating I will use a toner and my favorite toner is the Beauty Water by Son & Park. When days I don’t exfoliate my skin, this also helps. I use a cotton pad with this toner and it just removes the dirt out of my skin again. See how dirty our air is now and how it can cause clogged pores, even if you are not wearing makeup. I continue my skincare routine with my favourite Vitamin C Serum from Wishtrend & during not so busy days, I use the nose pack and it helps to keep my nose feels smooth and minimize the pores.
Lastly, my skin supplement. Non other than the infamous, H2O! I personally hate drinking plain water, trust me! I will crave for sweet drinks all the time. But what helps me to drink more water during the day are these cute tumbler that I got from Forever 21. The straw from the tumbler helps me to drink water faster. Sounds weird but it really helps! During my laptop is loading or buffering, I will sip on these tumbler. Moving on to my makeup routine, which are actually pretty simple.
Every morning I am rushed to make breakfast for my family, help prepare my son and making the beds. So I will go for a quick makeup routine and these are my go to make up stuff. I always go for eyelash curler; it keeps my eyes look more awake without even need to apply an eye makeup. Then brows! So important! My favorite has to be using the Brow Gel from Colourpop with my Breena Beauty B216 Brow Definer brush. Then, the lip and cheek! I just use my Breena Beauty Velvetcreme Matte Liquid Lipstick in the shade Peachcake.
During special occasion days, of course, I will treat myself with a full makeup routine that includes foundation, bronzed & highlighted cheek and full on eye look, my favorite! Beauty products has been my passion since I was a teenager and it helps me to feel happy and confident. Thanks to Youtube too for all the info and tutorials that helps me learned new things!

Love is in the Air! Top Romantic Getaway in Southeast Asia

Leave a Comment
Ah, love. It is such a beautiful thing. It’s so powerful that it can change your whole world. It can heal a heart and it can break it. All by the power of love. Why I’m being very Shakespeare on love today? Because today’s entry will be all about keeping the romance alive. Today, we’re going to look at the top romantic getaway in Southeast Asia. For those who are planning to have a romantic honeymoon/anniversary trip, maybe you’ll want to consider these places. I’m narrowing down four of the best. I’d love to include more but for the time being, I can only provide four. Maybe I’ll add more in another entry.

Segue alert! If you’re already planning to hop on a plane, you might wanna have a peek at Traveloka. I heard they’re having new deals at the moment and I think there are multiple airlines too! Let’s say you’re planning on booking AirAsia or other airlines, I think they have cool promotions running. So, remember to book AirAsia or other airlines to get you and your loved ones to the places we’re about to fly to~

El Nido, Philippines
Relive your very own Blue Lagoon here in El Nido. This crystal clear and white-sand beach is everything but dull. This island is one of the beautiful islands in the Philippines and a perfect romantic getaway for those seeking it. This once weathered limestone provide more than just a pretty view, you can also find some of the wonderful diving spots, hiking through one of the best trails through the mangrove forest and explore the unique caves out here. Oh, and don’t forget kayaking, duh! You can go all Mamma Mia! with a boat for two while enjoying the beautiful sunset scenery when you’re ending your day.

Tanah Lot Bali, Indonesia
There is without a doubt that Indonesia has some of the beautiful places to visit on any type of occasion. A romantic getaway is not excluded, of course. Welcome to Tanah Lot Bali, the most beautiful scenic sea temple there is. I realize I use “beautiful” a lot in this entry, but you can’t help it though, the places I included in today’s entry is what it is - beautiful. Let’s dive into a little bit of history lesson to really enjoy the place. The rock where the temple resides was originally called Tengah Lod that means “in the sea”. This was originated by the tale of a high priest from Majapahit named Dang Hyang Nirartha, who came to Bali back in 1489 to spread Hinduism and soon find this site that remains memorable up till today. The view really brings the romanticism to life and given the history surrounding this place, I think it just made the place much more meaningful to visit.

Siem Reap, Cambodia
Behold the gateway to the temples of Angkor, one of the unique historical ruins in the world. For a pair of lovebirds that enjoy sightseeing historical ruins, this site is a must-visit agenda you should opt for. In hindsight, you might seem that the only thing you can do here is literally walking through the temples and only that, but this is where you are mistaken. There are a bunch of other things you can do and it is equally romantic as walking by the beach. Here, you should never skip the opportunity to ride the hot air balloon over the Angkor ruins and watch the sunrise, which happens to be the highlight of the trip. Sun makes everything extra romantic. What better love story to tell the ancient ruins than your own?

Singapore Flyer, Singapore
Calling all thrill-seekers-couples! You might find this next destination both romantic and thrilling at the same time. We are flying to the land of the Merlion to touch the sky in a 165 meters high observation wheel. The Singapore Flyer was deemed Asia’s Largest Giant Observation Wheel for all the right reasons. It is definitely an intimate place worth visit to enjoy the city views at night. The panoramic views of the Marina Bay certainly give you that romanticism edge to it, don’t you think? Or maybe if you have found the person you want to spend the rest of your life with, who knows, this might be the best place to pop the question! Singapore Flyer is not a stranger to people proposing on its site before, why not be the next one in line?

And there you have it, some of the romantic getaway you can hop on a ride with your significant other. Of course, the list does not end there, there are also other places I did not cover in this entry. Do you have your chosen romantic getaway you love to escape to with your loved ones? Let me know all about it! Share your stories with me and let’s spread the love because clearly, the world needs a bit of that nowadays.

Until next time, see ya!
