Before Chinese New Year, I received a surprise parcel from Natta Cosme to review their BeautyMate Purifying & Hydrating Nano Toner!

I believe it came just right on time because I just finished using my Neutrogena Alcohol-Free Toner, plus I would be away travelling to Penang for the festive season, thus what better way to start the season with a new beauty product!! *excited*

MY VERDICT
❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ 
The toner has a watery texture which is transparent in colour. It is scentless and it doesn't give me the tingling sensation or leave my skin feeling tight (which is good).

I would usually pump 4 times until the cotton pad is half soaked with this toner then proceed to apply onto my entire face.

I noticed that they included Hyaluronic Acid in this toner, which is widely used in hyaluronan injections for filling soft tissue defects such as facial wrinkles. Which reminds me, this toner has high hydrating effect, just as what it is created to do - purify and hydrate!

Currently I'm already halfway through this bottle, and what can I say - I'm SUPER PLEASED!!!! I used to have dry skin (according to my facial therapist) and now I feel like my skin is becoming more plump and hydrated again! YAY!

Now I have boing boing skin! #throwsconfettiupinthesky

Worthy Book X Kenko Fish Spa X #ButterflyMsia

Wednesday, 26 February 2014
Have you ever been to a fish spa?

Last Saturday, I was invited to join The Butterfly Project's outing to Kenko Fish Spa @ Pavilion KL, courtesy of Worthy Book! There were a total of 50 invited guests, split into 2 sessions: 1.00pm-1.30pm // 1.30pm-2.00pm. I was scheduled to be in the first session and I managed to arrive on time (yippeee!), despite the slow traffic that afternoon :)



Aside from cleansing your feet's dead cells, Kenko Fish Spa also offers nail spa, foot reflexology as well as shoulder, foot and hand massage!

Kenko Fish Spa has quite a number of awards under their belt!

Step-by-step guide on how to regulate yourself at the fish spa!


Some info on Doctor Fish (Garra Rufa)

Origin
Hot Spring near Kangal, Turkey

Why they are known as Doctor Fish
Able to ease the symptoms of those suffering from skin conditions such as psoriasis.

How they get popular in Asia
The Japanese and Koreans brought the trend into Asia in the form of Fish Spa Resorts.

For the First Time in Malaysia
The First in the world to have a Garra Rufa Fish Spa built in a shopping mall.

The Benefits
  • Natural form of exfoliation of dead skin from our legs and feet. Smoother skin with easy moisturizer absorbtion.
  • Micro-massage sensation from these 'little masseurs' to promote blood circulation.
  • Lightening of minor scars.
  • Easing of psoriasis and minor eczema.
  • Slight ticklish sensation - release stress and tension!
Kenko Fish Spa: Hygienic & Clean
  • Water is changed daily.
  • Water is treated with 2000W Ultra Violet Sterilization - to kill virus and bacteria in water.
  • Sand filter - to filter out big particles like leftover fish food, food waste, etc.
  • Ozone treatment - to break liquid waste such as sweat, urea, blood, etc. into oxygen and natural water form.
  • PH level at neutral.
  • Temperature: Controlled at approximately 30 degree Celcius



Alright, after getting educated, here comes the pampering part!!!

We had to wash our feet and spray on enzyme (in case the fish dies of stinky feet) before dipping our legs into the pool!
The feeling of the bigger Garra Rufa fish bitings feel absolutely freaking... TICKLISH!!! The girls were screaming in high pitch, making the whole fish spa sounds a bit of S&M going on lol~

We realized that the fish were attacking mostly on our heels and inner parts between our toes! That's why it was difficult to snap pics of the fish lolol~ I guess that's where all the dead cells built up are! ;)



Spotted any familiar faces? :D


Here with me is Illy Ariffin, who is an admin of The Butterfly Project, who is also due to give birth VERY SOON! She still has a sharp V-shaped face despite being heavily pregnant!! *envious*

And of course, not forgetting the loveable mamasan of The Butterfly Project, Tammy Lim or better known in the blogosphere as Plus Size Kitten!




Thank you for reading this far! Signing off!

My Romantic Valentines 2014

Sunday, 16 February 2014

In the evening I went to Number 76 (known for the best place for hair colouring & hair braids!) to prep my hair! I opted for loose curls and some braids at my fringe because I was going to be an emcee for my bf's Chap Goh Mei X Valentine's Day Open House that night. More on this event when pics are ready from the photographer! ;)



Me as an emcee for the night.


***************

So I received the most romantic Valentine's Day gift:










I am the luckiest girl in the world because I always wanted a Thomas Sabo charm bracelet. I often reminded myself that I will not succumb to Pandora because Pandora is cheap TS is more luxurious and tasteful :) This Valentines, I received a TS charm bracelet, complete with SIX CHARMS! Yes, SIX! Each of them which represents a part of me :)))
(extra smiles because the smiley can't contain wide and goofy smiles lololol)

  1. Cupid diamond heart - Marks our first Valentine's Day together (I also like to think of it as our first date reminder where cupid was really working hard that night!)
  2. Globe - My dream is to travel around the world
  3. Snowflake - Christmas is my most favourite time of the year (I literally don't mind listening to Christmas songs everyday lol)
  4. Margarita - My extreme love for parties & clubbing! And of course, EDM music!
  5. Treble clef - This represents him, who's into singing & guitar!
  6. Heart Thomas Sabo - Represents this bracelet, which he got for me knowing that I love 


To my boyfriend, thank you for making this happen! Yes, dreams really do come true when I'm with you! iloveyouJSZF

Makeup Review: 3 Concept Eyes Lip Pigment (3CE) in Electro Pink

Tuesday, 11 February 2014
Hi readers!

You may be hearing "3 Concept Eyes" or better known as 3CE for short, especially towards the end of last year in Malaysia. However did you know that 3CE has been around since January 2009?

Well, I did a little research and it turns out that 3CE is a makeup brand by STYLENANDA, Korea's leading fashion house. For those who have not heard of Stylenanda, do take a look at these pics below and see if they are familiar!



SO YES! From the same creators of Stylenanda, here comes some premium Korean makeup!


**********


So today I'll be reviewing the much raved about Lip Pigment from the 3CE series. I first saw this brand getting popular especially on my Instagram timeline last year. It is then during my year end HK trip in December, I saw this baby on SALE so without hesitation, I instantly grabbed it!



I got this baby for about HKD65 from Bonjour.






I realized that snapping photos with flash will enhance the electric pink colour of this lip pigment. If taking a photo with flash, the colour will not come out too harsh. Therefore you need not worry if this lip colour will leave you looking like a surreal plastic barbie!!! PLUS POINT!!!


Here's a pic of me without flash, in Electro Pink.


Overall, I'm loving this lip colour as it has lasting staying power! The price is reasonable because the product lives up to its hype :) I finally found this perfect shade of pink for days I'm feeling like Nicki Minaj lols!


Retail Price: RM55.00-78.00
