Olla ladies, have you check out the awesome classy TVC titled STREET OF DREAMS by Martin Scorsese? If you havent allow me to share it below. You can check out how sexy and classy the TVC is. I mean having a great pair to be the face of the TVC as well as this perfume is just a great combination. I bet many of you know about Scarlett Johansson and Matthew McConaughey right?

 

There are two edition of “The One” perfume, for both male and female and today I would like to share with you about the male one. My husband is the white mouse for this review. Well, he just love being the white mouse! Before I go more deep, allow me to share a little bit about The One perfume for men. It it an Oriental Spicy perfume which is developed from the harmony of Tobacco notes and refined spices. The vibrant elegance of the top notes comes from the mouthwatering combination of Grapefruit, Coriander and Basil. Spicy and warm notes of Cardamom and Ginger drive the strong sensual signature, which over time yields to the authentic masculinity of the deep dry down of Tobacco and Ambery notes along with Cedarwood. Very manly but not not too strong just the right amount of manly.

 

My husband have quite a few fragrances and this is one of those few that stands out. This fragrance is light, elegant and smells rich. Even though it has a tobacco note, which I am not a big fan of, but I cannot smell anything that is tobacco-ish in this. That means, this fragrance has the right oils and blended well.The longevity and projection on this one is medium, so I would not recommend this for gathering or party with heavy crowd. This is more of a romantic dinner, executive boardroom kind of the fragrance. Because how light this stuff is, I would consider my husband wearing this mostly everyday.


This perfume goes well from younger crowd in early 20s till 40s in my opinion. That does not mean people in 50s and 60s cannot wear this, it will just upscale their image ;). Very decent and rich stuff.If you are very picky about where you spend your money and how you invest on fragrances, you will not be disappointed. This is great stuff. Most stores have this on display, you can try it out before you buy. I would recommend this for blind buy without a blink.

Last but not least.. as a friend of mine said, "If Matthew Mcconaughey can pull it off, then you know it's good!" For more information, do check out http://www.dolcegabbana.com/

Olay AQUACTION Long Lasting Hydration Gel (Review & Giveaway)

Dec 22, 2013

 

20131223_104612

Olla ladies, today I am going to introduce you to Olay AQUACTION Long Lasting Hydration Gel. Before going into that, have you ever wondered why we have been preached over and over again about how important it is to keep our skin hydrated? Well, this is because our skin is exactly like a leaky bucket!

It is constantly losing moisture to our surrounding. In fact, without doing much at all, we can lose about 2 glasses of water a day by just normal breathing and evaporation from our skin – imagine how much more moisture an active woman could lose! Which is why it is very important to keep it constantly hydrated.

GOOD NEWS! P&G scientists have discovered a second key cause of moisture loss – skin fatigue. Skin fatigue is the loss of skin energy, which leads to many unwanted changes in one’s skin, including a loss of skin’s ability to hold on to moisture, causing skin’s “leaky bucket” to become even more leaky as a result. To keep skin hydrated and bouncy, skincare products need to address not one but both causes of skin moisture loss.

What makes this Olay AquAction series awesome is the fact that it helps to reduce our skin’s “leaky bucket” condition as well as skin fatigue! and how it is done? Well, To fight “leaky bucket” situation, WSK is used. Incase you are wondering, it is an ingredient from the white jelly leaf which was a part of legendary Chinese beauty Yang Guifei’s beauty regimen. It has been shown to outperform hyaluronic acid, which until now, was thought to be the gold standard hydrating ingredient.

Next is Niacinamide. It helps to address skin fatigue caused by inadequate dietary systems and everyday stressors. It gives skin the energy to renew itself, bringing it back to more youthful levels, which in turn enables skin to hold onto its own moisture more effectively. You may also check out below for the detailed ingredients.

Regenerist Advanced Cleansing System (Review)

Dec 18, 2013

Olla ladies, today I would like to share with you about Regenerist Advanced Cleansing System. If you can in the pictures above it is actually a cleansing device. I bet many of you know or heard about this product before right?

Allow me to share my humble opinion, and hope that you might find it helpful just incase you are figuring out whether to purchase it or not. First off, in the set there's the handle and a detachable gentle brush head, with 2 AA batteries and a tube of Olay Skin Renewal Cleanser.

The batteries are inserted into the bottom of handle, which you rock side to side to remove the battery cover. (Being a super excited girl, without reading the manual I went home and open the box and spend like more than 10 minutes figuring out where to insert the batteries hahaha) I assumed this would be easy to do, but I have to say that I was struggling a little with this at first. Once I get use to the rhythm, all you need to do is just rock it nicely to the right n left and it will easily slide off. The brush head on the other hand is easy to lock into position.

I prefer battery operated cleansing device since I found it so much easier to maintain. Honestly too many charger at home (which can get pretty messy) for all the other devices and so glad that I don’t have to charge this one haha.. When I first open the box, I love it that Olay included the batteries even if you don’t have a spare battery at home you could always open the first box and walaaa.. batteries is there! Haha..

The cleansing device is plastic, I like the fact that the size is just nice for my palm and I found it so much easier to control. The device has 2 speed settings, so you can choose whichever speed/pressure you like. Once clicked on, the brush head spins in a circle at quite a fast pace.

The cleaning device cleanses four times better than basic cleansing and with the micro-massaging action cleanses, it will deeply and gently exfoliate your skin to effectively prepare it for your anti-ageing routine. At first I was a little worried about the device scrubbing too hard on my face, but actually with the gentle brushes. Do you know that the brush-head revolves 350 times per minute, reaching the skin’s contours where fingers cannot reach? I felt like I was treated to a facial massage right in my home! Anyway, it is recommended to change the brush head once every 3 months. I found that my face felt squeky clean after using it. I felt like my face was prepared to absorb all the yummy goodness of my next skincare regime.

All in all, I think that this is an amazing cleansing device which comes at a fantastic price, so if you do not already have a cleaning system, I would recommend it to you!

You can grab your at selected Watson for only RM 99.99 and for more info please check out www.olay.com and www.facebook.com/OlayMalaysia
