Zelens Z Luminous Brightening Serum | Review

Hey lovelies, how’s the week so far? My day started from going to our local shopping mall in very early hours to get few things. Although I was trying to avoid the crowd, unfortunately it was very unsuccessful at all. It took me ages to get in and out. I think it will be my last trip to the mall for this year. If I really must get something, I think I will just go online. Thanks for the internet, so convenient. Anyway, I have a review for you today. If you follow me for a while, you probably know I love Zelens Absolute Face oil. It has been a staple of my skin care routine. I haven’t found anything works better than that. Because of my love to the oil, I decided to try out the Zelens Z luminous Brightening serum. I wanted to see if it works on my skin. I bought the serum after I came back from our trip. I have been using it for about a month now. I can …

Clinique Pure Vitamin C Powder Cleanser | Review

Hey lovely people, how are you doing today? Happy Wednesday! It’s already in the middle of the week, almost the end of November. Can you believe it?! Before I start the review, the product’s name is actually Clinique Fresh Pressedâ„¢ Renewing Powder Cleanser with Pure Vitamin C. Very long, eh? 😉 I bought a 28 packets at the airport on the way back to Brisbane.  I have been using it ever since. There are only two packets left now. What they say about the product: It is a “water-activated powder cleanser with fresh Vitamin C to purify, brighten, retexturize“. The powder is activated by adding water. It suits all skin types for daily use. After using it, the skin will instantly has a “awakened, purified, with a refined texture and brighter look“. The formula is non-drying and non-striping. “Fresh means powerful. Pure Vitamin C naturally degrades when exposed to oxygen, so it’s most powerful when fresh. Stay-fresh packaging isolates the pure Vitamin C until activation, maintaining its freshness and full power for maximum results. ” Key …

Hair Care When Travel

Hey lovelies, how are you doing? I hope all are well. Let’s talk about hair care today. When we travel, our body is stressed. We don’t always have the product we use daily. We don’t always get a relaxed travel experience. Our body reacts to the changes. Use my recent trip as an example, when we left Australia, it was Spring. We landed in Larnaca at the end of the summer. The temperature was over 30 degree. A week later, we experienced dramatic weather in Varna, Bulgaria. The temperature went from 15ºc to 28ºC. I could only imagine how my body felt confused. So here are some of my ways of taking care of hair when travel or season changes. Wash hair less often I was trying my best to reduce my washing for hair on the trip. Although I didn’t take any dry shampoo with me, I was washing my hair probably 2-3 time a week during the travel time. I also took my favourite hair brush. I love a good hair brush. It …

I’m back

Greetings, lovely people! I hope you have had a wonderful weekend! My apologies! I know I haven’t updated my blog for over three weeks. I really missed my blog and you guys. I came back from the trip two weeks ago. There were so much to catch up at work. I was really snowed under with work. Plus, I had really bad jet lag. For the first week, I didn’t get much sleep at all. At some stage, I was so stressed out. Anyway, it’s all getting better now. No complaints! 🙂 I will start uploading photos and posts about the trip. It was one of the best trips I ever had. Please stay tuned. 🙂 For the beauty lovers, I didn’t buy a lot of beauty stuff on this trip. But I did get some Kiko products (Italian brand) and some Biotherm products (French brand). I will gradually post some reviews about these products. Just a sneak peek here. 😉 I want to take the opportunity to thank my followers. Thanks for staying with me. …

How to Choose Between Laser Skincare Options

Have you ever considered Laser Skincare Options for your skin problems? I know I have. I am still considering Laser treatment for the stubborn pigmentation on my cheeks. Few skincare procedures are anywhere near as well-known as laser treatments. Yet, many people still don’t fully understand how laser treatments work or how one laser device varies from another. You must have an understanding of those things before you can choose between laser skincare options for anti-aging and properly treat your skin concerns. A Comparison of Ablative and Non-Ablative Laser Devices Traditional laser treatments are typically thought of as ablative (treating the skin’s surface) and non-ablative (treating deeper skin layers). While non-ablative treatments typically have no impact on the epidermis, or outer skin layer, ablative treatments can either focus on the surface or impact multiple skin layers, depending on their intensity and purpose. An ablative laser device often strips away surface skin cells, many of which are already dead. It can also help to unblock pores by removing debris that would otherwise clog them. In addition …

Looking For the Best Dry Shampoo

Happy Monday! To be honest, it is actually my least favourite day of the week. I guess there is no surprise there. Somehow, Monday is the day that I always have more stress and more unexpected incidents. I hope my Monday has more than 24 hours so that I get more things done. Anyway, lately, I am resolved to take better care of my hair. I wash my hair everyday although I know it’s not very good for the hair. It’s probably part of the reason of my crazy frizzy hair. I am going to try to wash hair less often. However, I still want clean looked hair. I am thinking I probably should try dry shampoo. It looks like it can keep my hair clean enough between washes. Plus, it will save so much time from washing and blow drying. A win-win! Dry shampoo has been on the market for a while. There are so many brands offering dry shampoo products now. The options can be quite overwhelming. It would be wise to do some research …

Indie Lee COQ – 10 Toner|Review

Hello lovely people, another Monday! I hope you are all doing well. Here is probably my first toner review. I heard about Indie Lee COQ-10 toner from Caroline Hirons’s YouTube channel. She was raving about it on her YouTube channel and her blog. It was in her Cultbeauty beauty box as well, I think. My toner was almost used up last month. I thought I should give it a try since she recommended it to ‘normal to dry’ skin types. I did a little bit research on it as well. It’s a natural product and alcohol, acids, artificial fragrance, parabens free. There are quite a lot of good reviews about it. Many people said it worked wonder on their dry skin. I was hoping I would see same result on my skin too, especially during the change of seasons. My dry skin could use some help. What they say about the product: “An alcohol free, skin-balancing toner formulated with the powerful antioxidant CoQ-10. The hydrating and refreshing mixture diminishes the appearance of pores and balance …

Odacite Hyperpigmentation Serum Concentrate (Papaya+Geranium) |Review

If you have been following me for a while, you probably know I have hyperpigmentation problem. I am a little bit paranoia about sun damage, and I am very keen to try out products that claim to solve pigmentation problem. I came across Odacite Hyperpigmentation Papaya Geranium Serum Concentrate a while ago from cultbeauty.co.uk. When I got a voucher from them, I decided to spend on this one. Odacite products are all made in California. No Fillers, parabens, Nanoparticles, Petrochemicals, PEG, Synthetic perfumes, Dyes or Phenoxyethanol. In other words, it’s a clean brand. Their serum concentrates are super concentrate pure plant products. The idea behind it is customizing the product to different skin concerns. I do like the idea. What they say about the product: “Dark spot corrector formulated to fade brown spots and prevent the apparition of further skin pigmentation. Papaya fruit enzymes dissolve dead skin cells unveiling a fresh and more even-toned glow. Geranium and Lemon oils combine to further encourage a more evened-out skin tone and provide wrinkle reduction. In aromatherapy, Geranium oil is known …

Kiehl’s Smoothing Oil-Infused Leave-in Concentrate | Review

Hey guys, happy Wednesday! I hope you have had a good week so far. When it comes to hair, I am pretty ignorant. I trim and colour my hair on a regular basis, and I do hair treatment weekly at home. That’s it. I am guilty for blow dry my hair very often. My hair is really frizzy, especially at the front. Really bad! Lately, I picked up Kiehl’s Smoothing Oil-Infused Leave-in Concentrate from a shopping trip. I have been interested in trying out Kiehl’s hair products for a while, but never got around to do it. The leave-in concentrate is my first. What they say about the product: ” Weightless and versitile oil concentrate nourishes and smoothes hair while achieving a soft and shiny finish. …provides smoothing for all hair types; product may be used on damp hair as a nourishing and smoothing treatment and styling aid, or on dry hair as a weightless finisher for softness and shine. Formulated with Argan oil and Babassu oil extracted from Brazilian palm trees, treatment instantly transforms hair to …
