[Event + Review ] Fun in The Sun with Kiehl's Malaysia ❤

I guess most of you would know I joined a contest to attend this Fun in The Sun event with Kiehl's Malaysia organized by The Butterfly Project. Basically I won the invite to attend this event and I was more than excited because I had the opportunity to witness the launch of their new product which is the Ultra Facial Oil-Free Gel Cream. (:


Mr Bone was there to join in the fun with the bloggers too. I even put on my signature on one of Mr Bone's arms (:


While waiting for the rest of bloggers, we took photos of the venue and #selfie among us as usual. I even take a photo of the founder, Mamasan Tammy at the registration counter. She looked cute in the white coat. Looks like a doctor to me. Hehe.

Mamasan Tammy. (: 

It was my first time visited this place called Secret Garden. Apparently you can only access to this place using elevator which is near the Starbucks Coffee in Old Wing.




Secret Garden built on the rooftop of the 7-storey shopping centre and occupying an area of 30 000 sq ft, is one of the largest rooftop gardens in the world. It houses 600 species of interesting, rare and unusual plants. This amazing and beautiful 'garden in the sky' was developed in secret for 5 years before it was opened to public viewing on 25th May 2009. The garden is opened on Saturday, Sunday and public holidays from 10 am - 10 pm. 

#selfie time with the signboard. :P 

Kiehl's Malaysia was so kind to put on the signboards to show us the directions to the place. The venue was too beautiful. I seriously can't stop admiring the place here because i can enjoy greener view from this place. :D 


Refreshments were also served in this amazing space and I seriously love the garden here. It will be perfect if I can have my wedding here. *wide grin*


This event was a casual event whereby all of the beauty bloggers had the opportunity to try out the texture and effectiveness of Kiehl's Ultra Facial Oil-Free Gel Cream.  


We even had the chance to try out the shine level test on the face. Two Skin Barrier Tabs had to be placed on forehead and cheek with the greying dots touching the skin. Hold on the tabs for 10 seconds with gentle pressure. After that, compare the tabs with the Kiehl's level sheet to test on your shine level. 

While waiting for my shine level results. 

It turned out that my forehead is normal to oily level while my cheek is normal. 

Miss Miyaki told me that with my shine level on my forehead, it's recommended to use the Kiehl's Ultra Oil-Free Gel Cream to control my shine level on my forehead. If you try out their Ultra Oil-Free range, you will actually see the significant results after 1 week. Skin turned out did not appear shiny and oil or greasy after 1 week. I tried out the Gel Cream on the day itself and I like the non-greasy texture. It absorbed into my skin immediately after I applied it. 


This Ultra Facial Oil-Free Gel Cream uses efficacious blend of ingredients to work together to help strengthen skin's moisture barrier, leaving it velvety-soft and looking virtually shine-free. The resulting formula provides both hydration and reduction of the appearance of shine for 24 hours. 


During the event, we also got to build the cactus terrarium on our own. Thank you Frozen Trees for the pretty cactus terrarium. 


First of all, we picked our own glasses followed by choosing the plant of our choice and decorate your terrarium after that. 


Pebbles / stones for you to decorate your terrarium.

Here's my terrarium after I decorated it. 

There was a pretty backdrop of Kiehl's Fun in The Sun event for beauty bloggers to take their group photos or etc. Pretty props to match with the backdrop too. :D

The event ended around 1pm with a group photo with all the beauty bloggers who attended that day. Kiehl's was kind enough to gave each of us a full-sized items of Ultra Facial Oil-Free range to review! Thank you so much The Butterfly Project and Kiehl's Malaysia for giving me the chance to join this mingling session with Kiehl's crew and the bloggers. (:

Kiehl's Malaysia gave me a full set of Ultra Facial Oil-Free range to bring home to try out. Two weeks after trying out the products, I was simply amazed with the results. 

Ultra Facial Oil-Free Cleanser 

Ultra Facial Oil-Free Cleanser - RM85

It's a lightweight formula to remove excess oil and impurities. This oil-free, quick lathering cleansing foam thoroughly removes the impurities and visibly reduce excess oil on skin's surface, while leaving skin looking more balanced. With Imperata Cylindrica Root and Lemon Fruit Extracts, our non-stripping, sulfate-free formula leaves skin clean and refreshed without over-drying. 



I only need to squeeze a small amount of this fragrance-free cleanser and lather it well before applying it on my face. The skin turned out to be quite smooth and less oily after one wash. 


Ultra Facial Oil-Free Toner
This oil-free toner is formulated to visibly reduce excess oil on skin's surface, while leaving it instantly fresh and healthy looking. This alcohol-free formula gently removes any remaining residue, dirt and oil without stripping skin of vital moisture. 

Ultra Facial Oil-Free Toner - RM85 (250ml)

After cleansing, moisten a cotton pad with the toner and apply to face, avoiding the immediate eye area. The toner has some refreshing scent that made my skin feel refreshed. 


Ultra Facial Oil-Free Gel Cream
This gel cream is formulated with a refreshing texture and intensely hydrates and conditions skin, while providing long-lasting moisture. 

Ultra Facial Oil-Free Gel Cream - RM190 (125ml) and RM100 (50ml)

Their non-greasy hydrator easily absorbed into the skin and it does not leave any sticky feeling on my skin after the application. 


Overall Review
The results after two weeks were amazing. I took another shine level on my skin and it turned out the shine level on my forehead had turned back into normal. Yay! However as for the cheeks, it turned out to be dry (which means there's no more oily surface on my cheeks). I will just have to keep on applying the Ultra Facial Oil-Free range for hydration purposes as my target to reduce shine level on my forehead had been achieved. 


Once I finished using the products, I can't wait to purchase another set of this range for long term usage. Thank you Kiehl's Malaysia for making my face oil-free! Thumbs up for this range! :D
