SENKA MINERAL UV ESSENCE Review

Aug 26, 2014

 

senka uv mineral

Olla everyone!

You know what, like many other asian girls… I used to be obsessed about trying to achieve the fairest skin tone I could get. Then I realized, putih semacam tapi kalau berkedut pun tak guna juga kan?? So I end up using so many products on my face. To tackle anti aging, to help me with whitening, sunblock and all that on top of the normal clean, tone plus moisturizing routine.

I have to be honest with you that it is quite a challange to keep it up. Now that I have a daughter, my time is very precious. I can be spending as much time for my face anymore. As we all know, mothers need to multi task everytime! hahaha..

Which is one of the reason I like this new product by Senka. Made from 100% Mineral Water, this UV essence by Senka is an anti-aging sunscreen serum that blocks out UV rays and helps to prevent premature aging. Basically, it is an anti aging product + sunblock in one tube.

What make this Senka Mineral UV Essence special is that it have SPF50 PA++++ protects your skin against harmful UV rays. I dont think I have to share about the harm that UV can do to your skin, lets just make it simple by saying it is your skin worse enemy. UV = cepat tua. 

Next, it  also contains Coenzyme Q10 which is a type of moisturizing ingredient that upholds the elasticity of your skin and provides superior protection while repairing your skin. You may also use this during moisturizing step as it does contain Hyaluric acid.

 

senka review

What I personally like about this product is that it does not come with the “pungent average sunblock smell”. I also like that it is very light weight. Okay ya, I do know once of the reason many people tend to skip sunblock step is because of the thick texture or the “traditional sunblock”. I am quite amaze that this one is very light-weight considering the amount of jam-packed goodness in it. All I say is that, it feels like applying a cream moisturizer on your face with extra benefits for your skin.

Apart from all that, I also like the price tag. This darling product costing at RM39.90 for 50gram of product and trust me it is super affordable considering the benefits it gave. You can cut cost on your other product, thanks to the anti aging + sunblock properties.  Anyway, it is available at selected Watson’s outlets nationwide.

So ya, thats about it. Thank you for spending your time by dropping by and reading this post. I hope it helps to give you more input if you are going to pick up/replenish your sunblock.

Olla everyone!

How are you today? Hope everything goes well at your end. Today I would to share my experience visiting Moo Cow Yoghurt Factory. Yabeda beduuuuuuuu…. Have you heard of Moo Cow? I bet you did. Moo Cow is actually a yummy and healthy frozen yogurt brand. When I mentioned healthy, what I really mean was  the yogurt contained 18 billion live cultured bacterium, known as L. Acidophilus. If you are wondering, the bacterium helps to improve digestion, prevents and treats diarrhoea, reduces the overgrowth of pathogens in digestive tract, relieves irritable bowel syndrome, Chron’s disease and gut dysbiosis, as well as increasing your immune system. So, you could enjoy yummy dessert that is good for your body.

Guess what, Moo Cow is actually a Malaysian product and was founded in year 2011, within just few years it have successfully melt the hearts of many yogurt lovers. Up to now, Cow have 16 outlets all around Malaysia, from Klang Valley to Penang and even have an outlet at Sabah. I personally believe that more to come, considering the growth rate. Hope there will be more and more outlets so that many people could be able to enjoy this yummy goodness. You can check out, the nearest outlet to you just by checking their website.

Anyway, lets get back to my experience visiting their factory. Thanks to Butterfly Project, 10 butterflies get the chance to have a close encounter and learn more about the process of making Moo Cow yogurt. I am very excited trough out the whole session, as it is not everyday you get the chance to see how it is made right infront of your eyes. This trip reminded me of a school trip! Smile 

All of us gathered at one of Moo Cow outlets at Publika that morning. Like all the other outlets, I love how cute and funky their shop is. So colourful and fun. As we arrived, we do what bloggers do best. We SNAP pictures and camwhore!! hahahaha… We were also given with a welcome drink. It is the yogurt drink by Moo Cow. It like the taste of the drinks, as it is not too sweet and healthy way to start our day.  Right after that, we were chauffeured by van to the factory. I felt like a school kids once again Smile

As we arrived, we were greeted by Mamalia (one of the Moo Cow’s mascot). Super cute!! Everyone looks so happy with the presence of Mamalia.Once again, picture time.. We get to hug and take lots of pictures. Then, we get to visit Moo Cow’s HQ office. As I step in, I am amazed by the super cute interior design of the place. It brings out such a fun, friendly and happy mood. I am like,”What so cute their office? can I work here tooo?”

We were then introduced to the man behind this brand which is Cliford. Cliford greet us and explain to us more about yogurt. I found that the session is quite beneficial as I learn great amount of info about yogurt. Do you know that the word yogurt comes from Turkey and refers to a tart, thick milk. Yogurt does not have one single origin, however. It can be found in nearly every culture that kept animals for milk. It was likely discovered in similar ways in each region. When fresh milk is left in a container with friendly bacteria, the milk thickens and develops a delicious sour taste. The lactic acid produced by the fermentation also acts as a preservative, helping the cultured milk stay pleasant longer. For nutrition facts for Moo Cow’s yogurt, you can also refer the the diagram below :

Right after the informative session, we get to go to witness the process. Ya…. so syiok! Cliford did the demo and invited 2 butterflies, Innanie and Swee San to try it as well. Cliford explained the process thoroughly and informed us that we can also try to make it at home. Tips : Make sure you sterilize your utensil properly and do remember to avoid stirring.

It was such a fun and informative day! I also did a simple video of the session, you get to see the amount of fun we had on that day Smile Feel free to check it out below :

MayFair Bodyline - I want Free Trial

Aug 20, 2014

clip_image001

Olla Everyone clip_image002

I have one important question here. When is the last time you pamper yourself? What If I tell you that I am hosting a giveaway and 10 of my readers will each get a customised treatment for facial or slimming! and yes.... you may pick either for slimming or face. Before I go into that, I would like to share my experience enjoying the session I had last couple of weeks all thanks to MayFair Bodyline.

Everyone deserved a pampering session every now and then. Appreciate yourself and take the time to deeply love yourself. We all have amazing talents and gifts that no one else has.It is so important to take time to do nice things for ourselves. Especially for those of us who spend much of our time helping and caring for others, it is too easy to neglect ourselves and become worn out, stressed out and run down.

Self-pampering is not about being selfish. It's about taking proper care of yourself and treating yourself as kindly as you treat others. We spend so much time and effort caring for our spouses, children, pets, friends, family members, employers and employees. Add to that numerous volunteer activities, errands, housework, family functions, meetings, etc. - and there isn't much time left for caring for ourselves. Be kind and gentle with yourself. If you don't make the time to care for yourself, who else is going to? So ya, I decided to take care of myself before I could take care of those around me and you should too…

Do you know that Mayfair is currently having a promotion you need to pay only RM29 for 5 treatments. The normal price will cost you thousands!! So this is the best time to pamper yourself and enjoy this promo. *wink wink*

clip_image003

MayFair have 31 outlets nationwide, from KL to Selangor to Negeri Sembilan, Melaka, Johor you name it. I decided to visit their outlet at Pavilion as it have been awhile since I went to Pavilion. Well, you can always go to the outlets nearest to you instead. As I arrived, I was ushered into the consultation room. Nice or not the room? clip_image0021I love the big comfy sofa!

During the consultation, I was requested to fill up a form which look just like the one below.Did you know that I was 79.5 kg during my final term of pregnancy? I am quite happy that I managed to shed off those extra kilo. The moment I was at the weighing machine and the device shows 60.4kg I am already super duper happy!! (Haven't even start my treatment hahaha..) Apart from that, I was consulted and my height were measured (last time I measure at hospital 157, now 156 am I getting more pendek?) and of coz these info needed to check my BMI.

clip_image004

clip_image005

clip_image006

All that info is needed in order for MayFair Bodyline consultant to advice you one which treatment is more suitable for you. After all, everybody is unique so which is why it is nice to know which area can be enhance. After checking all that, next the consultant helps me to find out my skin type and skin issue thanks to the skin analysis camera. I was informed that I have combination skin which is congested. Which means certain area of my face is dehydrated while the rest is oily. My customized treatment of the day is to help me improve my facial skin condition and to slim plus firm up my tummy area (thanks to being pregnant and those extra weight that I loss drastically I now have a flabby tummy). In order to achieve this I was consulted to go for the Slim Master treatment , CLA Chili Slimming and Heat Circulation body treatment for my body and for my Perfect Herbal Mask Treatment for face.

clip_image007

I was then kindly ushered into the treatment room. I got to try their VIP Room. I like this treatment room as it is very cozy. They have nice sofa to relax, a giant mirror and a sink. I like that the room was tidy and quite spacious. One of the thing I noticed when I step into the room is the calming music. By listening to the music itself, it helps to relieve some burdens of my chest. My mind automatically tells me to just chill out, keep calm and enjoy this self-pampering session.

clip_image008

clip_image009

One of my favourite part during the treatment was when I am having my mask herbal mask on. My therapist of the day is Doreen Goh. She is very skilful and she helps to explain everything she does the procedure on me. This Perfect Herbal Mask is aiming to suck out all of my impurities so my skin will be healthy and smooth. I like the smell of the herbal mask as well which is a plus point!

The Perfect Herbal Treatment targets oily, combination skin or acne prone skin. It improves the visibility of open pores and reduces the level of the sebaceous gland. It has active ingredients like “Burdock” which moisturises in depth and stops or reduce any inflammation. It has benefits of anti-microbial, bateriostatic and anti-fungal functions as well. “Ylang Ylang is also another active ingredients which smoothens and purifies skin. It prepares skin for a better penetration for serum or moisturises and balances sebaceous gland. “Aloe Vera Extract” provides moisturising and regenerating effect. “Willow Extract” which is high in salicylic acid is to fight the excess oil.

Then I did the IST Detoxification Facial. I was told that my skin needed a detox during this treatment I get to try the electric wave injection using NL 909 Ion Static is effective use High Frequency Vibration Wave technology which combines 10 beneficial within one single treatment. Formulated by our cutting edge slimming & beauty expert, this revolutionary machine is utmost on internal healing, where charges from the energy health instrument flow through the entire body and effectively in slimming, beauty and promote energy health. Guaranteed no any side effect.

I can felt the vibration it is not as scary like what others said. I mean I tried numerous facial treatments before but I never experience facial with this technique. As usual, my face were cleansed, tone and then follow by steaming right before extraction were done. Before the machine were used on my face, Doreen helped to put a cooling gel to the skin being treated to provide a barrier so the RF hand piece can glide on the skin and provide less discomfort.

After the treatment, my skin felt like it have been rejuvenate and fresh. I touched my face and it is so smooth. Me likey!!

clip_image015

For my body treatment,I was treated with Slim Master and Heat Circulation treatment. Firstly, my body was treated with Chili CLA slimming program using signature special formulation of Mayfair Chili Cream to stimulate breaking down of fats, and burn tons of calories with the special exercise machine in the extensive body exercise therapy. CLA Chili Slimming is one of Mayfair’s successful treatment and being one of the first few slimming industry in Malaysia which started it. With the essence extracted from chili pepper seeds, the active elements in capsicum can be effective and rapidly stimulate the decomposition and excretion of the body fats. Never knew chili is that awesome when it comes to slimming treatment for the body. Good to know it now!

When the therapist applied the CLA Chili Cream and wrapped my body, I felt a bit of tingling sensation ( I bet the Chili Paste is doing their work where it starts to penetrate and burn fats) and thanks to the wrap my body felt tight. Then, Doreen the therapist setup the heat blanket on the treatment bed and I laid on it then she cover my whole body with the hot blanket. During the session I am sweating which is good as that is how it supposed to be.

I was also treated with Slim Master and Heat Circulation treatment. Doreen the experienced therapist at Mayfair Bodyline use machine with electron stimulation technique to dissolve and release stored fat in cell membranes.

As for the Slim Master session, the intensive ultra-sound that creates and generates micro-bubbles which hits the surface of fat cells to emulsify them. Then it is absorbed by the lymphatic system and drainage system to be eliminated from the body. It also stimulates the body to increase secretion of LPL enzyme which decomposes the fatty acids into energy.

As mentioned earlier, I also experience the heat blanket treatment. For the heat blanket in which may aid in relieving muscle, improving blood circulation and reducing fluid retention. This heat blanket treatment, aid the slimming process and helps me to become slimmer faster! I was sweating during the heat blanket session. In a good way, as I know my body is reacting to the treatment given.

After the session, I felt refreshed! My body felt lighter my tummy felt firmer and considering this is my first session, I am impressed with the result! Now I am considering to opt for the package. Anyway here is the FUN part clip_image0022

As I mentioned earlier, lets move on and check out this Gucci Première EDP. First of all, I love how elegant the bottle packaging is. I mean it comes in gold bottle, SEXY is the best word to describe it. It looks very urban, glamorous and modern in my opinion.

If you are wondering about the scent Smile 

TOP: bergamot, orange blossom; The fragrance opens with the luxury and exuberance of a vintage champagne. A burst of effervescent bergamot fused with feminine and celebratory orange blossom conveys the heady excitement of the red carpet entrance.

HEART: white flowers, musk; At the scent’s core nestle the brilliant white flowers of an intense bouquet, laced with a magnetically sensual modern musk. The timeless allure of the leading lady, the perfect balance of sensuality and power, inspires a collective captured breath.

BASE: leather, wood; The fragrance’s warm and indulgent foundation rests in a beguiling cocktail of subtly smoky leather and creamy balsamic woods that epitomises absolute glamour.

Personally, I found that it is quite elegant and sophisticated with citrus and berry notes at the opening then come white flowers and musk ending with woody notes and patchouly. I think it's best suited for nigh time even though it's not too heavy.Longevity could be better but it lingers a few hours staying close to skin.I would recommend this scent to someone who wants to be noticed but in a discreet sort of way.

Light Blue by Dolce & Gabbana (Review)

Aug 17, 2014

Olla Everyone!

When is the last time you enjoyed a Mediterranean beach holiday? Well, no worries if it have been ages or you havent done so Smile I havent done so either.. hahaha.. The last time I had a close encounter with relaxing beach escape (not mediterranean, I wish I am that rich.. hey.. our local beach is awesome tooo okay?) is more than a year ago…. Gosh missing it badly T.T

light blue Dolce & Gabbana

Dolce&Gabbana Light Blue perfumes – Escape to Panarea (Women)

 

Anyway, thanks to Dolce & Gabbana. They came out with this light blue perfume and just by a few spritz you got sensation as the Mediterranean beach vacation you needed.That exactly how I felt when I smell the perfume. I noticed a very delightful aroma came from these two bottles. I must point it out that the feeling came from the nice hint of an oceanic scent.

 

light blue Dolce & Gabbana

Dolce&Gabbana Light Blue perfumes – Discover Vulcano (Man)

 

I try my very best to explain these two bottles. To me, the Light Blue's opening is very fresh--citrus without a lot of sweetness. Strangely, even though it's not listed in the notes, I could detect a hint of sea in it too, making it almost aquatic, but it was very faint and it was quickly enveloped by other notes. As it develops, it becomes sweeter and more mellow. Sweet lemon, apple, bamboo and cedar are still detected after a few hours. Longevity is good. Do bear in mind that the longevity tend to varies depending on how your body reaction towards it.


Overall, it's very lovely and I can see why it's very popular perfume. If I have to describe the scent succinctly it'd be "sweet sea smell". I've always loved sea smell and I really love how it mixes in this one, and I'm quite excited when I got it and yes, my hubby is excited as well Smile with tongue out 

What do you think? Have you smell it yet? Anyway, thank you for dropping by and reading my humble post. I am going to continue counting days to my next beach gateway… As for now, I settled for these perfumes to make my day Smile
