My 2015 Beauty Regime ❤

Holla readers! How’s your year 2015 going on? Anyway, today I would like to share with my readers on my beauty regime in year 2015. Basically this will be a very simple post. I am going to show you all the products that I’m about to use. It’s essential to apply proper skincare according to your skin type daily. Once in awhile you need to indulge in face masks so that your skin will get all the nutrients that it lacks. 

I am going to start off with one of the most award-winning product which is GlamGlow. GlamGlow was founded by Glenn and Shannon Dellimore in 2010 exclusively for backstage and professional use in Hollywood's entertainment, music, fashion and award industries. GlamGlow was granted a patent for their Teaoxi real leaf technology and becoming globally recognized for fast-acting, innovative mud treatments that deliver instant, visible results.

Since dry skin is always my concern, I was given the opportunity to review GlamGlow Thirstymud Hydrating Treatment from the Butterfly Project Beauty Box in travel size. Thirstymud is a non-drying hydration mask which to deliver instant, extreme hydration.


Thirstymud uses the newest, most advanced and extreme hydration active technologies. It moisturizes, restores, replenishes and calms the skin.



Dewdration™  boosts and locks in moisture for a dewy and youthful result while HydraPack™  leaves skin with an instant silky, soft and supple feel. GreenEnergy™  smooths and energizes the skin, giving you a healthy-looking glowing complexion. As for Teaoxi® Olive Leaf, it delivers naturally moisturizing linoleic acid. 


The texture is quite milky and creamy and the color is more on a skin color tone. However, the coconut scent is too strong for me and I do not like it but it is bearable. It feels like I am having coconut milk on my face. 


What I like about this mask the most is that it is formulated without parabens, sulfates and phthalates. Nowadays there are many products in the market which contain parabens and products which contain parabens can cause skin irritation to certain individuals. So I think this Thirstymud from GlamGlow is suitable for those who have super sensitive skin. I use it twice a week since I have dry skin and the results are amazing. You can also use the mask on the neck and chest too.

Skin is soft and smooth after few usages. No more dry and flaky skin especially on the nose area. Yay! :D


Arlesienne Velvet Hand Cream
Enriched with moisturizing agents of natural origin, this velvet cream helps to nourish and soften hands, revealing the vibrant Arlésienne fragrance. It is made of extracts of rose, sweet velvet and saffron from Provence. 


The scent of the hand cream is pleasant. It's not sticky as compared with other hand cream and it's easily absorbed on the skin after a few massages. 


For your information, this Hand Cream is a limited edition cream and to those who wish to purchase it, you can purchase it through their website. While stock lasts. Deets here: http://my.loccitane.com.


Indeed Labs Hydraluron Moisture Boosting Mask 
If your skin lacks of hydration of the time, I would suggest to you another product which is good in hydrating your skin. Introducing Hydraluron, a moisture boosting mask from Indeed Labs which hydrate your skin from beneath the surface for 24 hours of long lasting moisture retention.

I never really like to apply mask as I believe that all the masks only give me temporary hydration. However, this mask does it differently from the rest. With one usage of this mask, I feel my skin became softer and plumped. How can a mask plump up my face at the same time? I could not believe it but seriously it worked. 


If you wish to try it out, get this mask from Muse by Watsons which is located at Sunway Pyramid. More info here: https://www.facebook.com/MusebyWatsons. 


Matrix Biolage in Smoothproof

My first time trying out products from Matrix. Biolage from Matrix is the exclusive blend of unique botanicals and the latest technologies creates gentle, high-performing formula to enhance the beauty of every hair type. 


Matrix Biolage in Smoothproof

I was given a bottle of full-sized item of Matrix Biolage in Smoothproof. This smoothing hair care products and formulas work to encapsulate hair and align the cuticle to help lock out moisture for control and smoothness. I like the scent of this Camellia Flower which reminds me of baby products. Beware not to squeeze too much of the shampoo as it's quite watery. The hair that were washed with this Matrix Biolage Smoothproof gave a softer and smoother texture on my hair. For more details, check out: www.biolage.matrix.com.


Always 21 Aloe Vera Soothing Gel Mist
Another product that I love from Butterfly Beauty Box is this Aloe Vera Soothing Gel Mist from Always 21. I would carry this gel mist with me whenever I go. 

Always 21 Aloe Vera Soothing Gel Mist

This Gel Mist contains rich moisture mists which protects skin from harmful external environments. Whenever I feel tired, I would use this to spray on my face and I feel refreshed after that. This is a good product that I would recommend to you guys! :D For more info, check out their Facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/always21malaysia




Nature Republic Snail Solution Hydrogel Mask Sheet
If any of you think that applying 3-step skincare is enough to rejuvenate your skin, then you are wrong. Almost once or twice a week, I would suggest you to slap on some mask on your face preferably after your 3-step skincare.

I tried this Snail Solution Hydrogel Mask Sheet from Nature Republic which contains snail secretion filtrate. Its refreshing texture soothes distressed skin while gently embracing the surface of my face, moisturising from inside out.


The hydrogel sheet mask is super thin and almost invisible when the mask is placed on your face. I always enjoy using mask at night especially before sleep. I also love the cooling sensation on the face and my skin feel hydrated instantly after the mask application. More information on the product: https://www.facebook.com/naturerepublicmalaysia.

Thank you sponsors and The Butterfly Project Malaysia for the amazing products. Have a good day everyone! :D

My Essential Beauty Products for Year 2015! ❤

Today I would like to share with my readers on my products I had received from The Butterfly Project Beauty Box during The Butterfly Project Xmas Party. Today I am going to share with you guys on the products that I have tried. 


Products to be reviewed:  

- KOJI Dolly Wink Liquid Eyeliner  
- Hotlights Lipgloss from Collection Cosmetics 
 - Maybelline Baby Lips Electro Lip Balm 
- Maybelline Color Show Nail Lacquer

Let me start off with the review of KOJI DollyWink Liquid Eyeliner. This DollyWink eyeliner has a pink color packaging which I assume all the girls will love. 


The fine tip of this eyeliner makes the application is easy to apply on my eyelids. I love how it is smudge-proof when I rub it on my hands. The black ink does not smudge under running water. 

With water and without water


This KOJI DollyWink eyeliner dries pretty fast, and does not irritate my eyes especially when I am wearing contact lenses. I can easily remove it off with water-based eye makeup remover. 


One of my favourite product in the beauty box is Hotlights Lip Gloss from Collection Cosmetics (http://www.collectioncosmetics.co.uk/lips). This collection comes with 6 dazzling shades. I was given a Hotlights Lip Gloss in Glimmer, a darker shade of pink from the look of the packaging. It's a non-sticky formula with glossy, shimmery particles for lips that dazzle. 


This shade of pink might seem to look darker from the look of it but it's super light on the lips when you apply it. I would suggest you to apply a lipstick before applying this lip gloss if you want your lips to be noticed. This lip gloss will only create shimmery look if you just apply solely on its own. 

The colour of the lip gloss with flash and without flash. 

This is how the pink shade looks like on my lips. 

Who would actually come out with the idea of putting a mirror and LED light in a packaging of a lipgloss? This is definitely a thumbs-up for me! My first time encountering a lip gloss which has built-in light and a mirror. Maybe there's a lip gloss who has the same design with this one but seriously I have never come across yet so far. You will not have the trouble looking for mirror and bright light to apply your lip gloss when you have this Hotlights Lip Gloss. It's totally hassle-free! :D 


If you are a lazy person like me who does not like to apply lipstick wherever you go, this Maybelline Baby Lips Electro Lip Balm is suitable for you! 


You can finally own a lip balm which has electric color pigments and with 8 hours hydration for your lips! Say no more to basic lip balm! :D This Baby Lips Electro Lip Balm comes in 6 tinted shades which visibly renew lips in 1 week. 

Lip balm has been always an essential product in my handbag. No matter where I go, I would need a lip balm with me since I have super dry lips. I like this lip balm because I do not have to carry lipstick and lip balm with me anymore since I can have pink lips too with only this Baby Lips Electro Lip Balm! 


This Maybelline Baby Lips Electro Lip Balm in Pink Shock (http://www.maybelline.com/Lip-Balm) gives me a pinky lips which I do not require to apply any lipstick or lip gloss. In fact, with this lip balm, I find that my lips are softer and smoother. It also comes with a pleasant fruity smell that makes me feel like licking it each time I apply. 

Maybelline Baby Lips Electro Lip Balm in Pink Shock

Last but not least, this will be my first time trying out such striking pink nail lacquer. Introducing Maybelline Color Show Nail Lacquer in Berry Sexy (http://www.maybelline.com/Products/Nail-Makeup). 


This nail lacquer color is suitable to be worn daily for parties or casual outing. I personally do not think I can carry out this color especially I find it too girly for me. I can pull out pastel color nail lacquer but not on this shade of pink. However, this nail lacquer has slight shimmer which can be worn to parties if you want your nails to be outstanding. 

Maybelline Color Show Nail Lacquer in Berry Sexy

Thank you to all the sponsors for the products! Do stay tune to my next review on the facial masks! Thank you for reading! :D I am currently in outstation and the internet connection here is rather slow. Sorry about it. =/ I wish you guys have an enjoyable weekend with your loved ones! (=

[Beauty Review] 100% Pure Brightening Scrub & Mask + Purity Facial Cleanser & Mask ❤

Sorry for not updating my blog so frequently. This week has been pretty bad for me as I am down with cough, flu and sore throat. Too many pending posts and yet I do not have the time to pen down all my pending posts. Sorry about that. =/

Anyway today I would like to share with you guys 2 products from this famous product from US - 100% Pure. 100% Pure is the absolute most healthy, the most pure line of nourishing personal care made with the highest quality ingredients. It is free of any harmful toxins that are common in other cosmetics. 100% Pure's mission is to create the healthiest cosmetics made with the highest quality ingredients. 


Today I would like to review Brightening Scrub + Mask and Purity Facial Cleanser + Mask. Let's move on with Skin Brightening Collection which is the Brightening Scrub + Mask.

Skin Brightening Collection is formulated specifically to enliven dull looking complexion to make it more vibrant, healthy and glowing. Rather than using harsh chemical skin lighteners, this 100% Pure formula gets its brightening effects from all natural, gentle ingredients like bearberry, kojic acid, sake, fruit acids, licorice, vitamin C, lemon juice and strawberries. 

Brightening Scrub and Mask 7.9ml - RM39.00

This scrub + mask comes in a small tube which can be carried anywhere for traveling. It has orange smell which makes me feel like eating it each time I wash my face with it.This scrub is for lackluster skin types. Remember to wet your face and gently massage into skin using circular motion to slough off dead skin. Rinse afterwards.


This scrub + mask feels light on the skin. The scrub does not feel harsh on my skin and I can see a slight improvement on my skin tone after one wash. Occasionally try to use this as a mask but this mask will not dry after 1 - 2 minutes. Try to scrub your face thoroughly to remove the dead cells on the face for brightening effect.

Purity Facial Cleaner + Mask - RM109 (118ml)

Once in a while I will have pimples popping up on my face and therefore this is another product that you should try especially for those with pimple-prone skin. Introducing Purity Facial Cleanser + Mask which has both function as cleaner and mask.

Purity Collection is formulated specifically to give you a clear complexion and to protect against future breakouts. Detoxifying essential oils kill the acne causing bacteria while nourishing  seaweeds and purifying herbs protect against future breakouts.


As a cleanser, on wet face, massage cleanser onto skin, gently exfoliating and removing dirt and oil buildup. I would also suggest to those who have pimples occasionally to use this whenever you have pimples on the face to remove the toxins. Try to apply it as a mask twice a week to remove the impurities on the skin as pimples might pop up out of nowhere due to improper face cleansing. 


As a mask, apply onto clean skin, leave on for 3-5 mins, rinse and cleanse thoroughly. I love the smell of this cleanser + mask. Be sure to apply the mask on the damp skin and do AVOID EYE AREA as this cleanser + mask might sting if the product gets in contact with your eyes.

Lady in green! :P

I noticed the difference on my skin after using this. Pimples become smaller day by day after using this product continuously and this deeply detoxifying yet gentle facial cleanser will leave my complexion fresh and purified each time. Overall these products from 100% Pure did a great job to my skin and I like how it does not harm my skin since it's 100% natural and vegan. So it's definitely suitable for those with sensitive skin.

Thank you 100% Pure Malaysia for the products and to those who wish to try out these products, you can purchase them at travel sizes at their website: www.100percentpure.com.my. For more info, do check out their Facebook: www.facebook.com/100PercentPureMalaysia and Instagram: @100percentpuremalaysia for more updates on their products. (:

[Beauty Review: Part 2] REALASH Eyelash Enhancer ❤

Holla readers! I am back with second review from REALASH Eyelash Enhancer. To those who have yet read my 1st review, you may check it out here: http://janiceyeap.blogspot.com/2014/10/review-part-1-unboxing-realash-enhancer.html.
 

To those who have no idea of what REALASH Eyelash Enhancer is, here's the short introduction of this awesome product:
"REALASH is the result of countless hours spent in the most advanced labs in Europe. Our award-winning ingredient is a dream come true for women around the world for plenty of reasons, but what makes it revolutionary is that it’s not just a cosmetic, or a temporary solution. REALASH helps your body to produce real lashes with incredible density, length and strength so you look your best everyday, at anytime. In addition, REALASH doesn't irritate eyes nor it causes any side-effects. It’s beauty and confidence you can rely on forever"


REALASH is intended for all women wishing to have long, thick and strong lashes. REALASH is recommended to ladies whose eyelashes are short or weak by nature. Women who have abused fake lashes, bad cosmetics or chemotherapy are also prone to weaker eyelashes.

This Eyelash Enhancer serum is 100% safe. To ensure complete safety, REALASH formula has been enriched with natural mango and papaya fruit extracts, bitter orange flowers extract and sabal palm leaves extract. Horsetail, flax and calamus extracts are a great source of vitamins E and C. These substances work synergistically to protect delicate skin around the eyes, making you look even more radiant.

 

DO NOT apply to the lower lashes. Use the sterile applicator supplied with REALASH to apply the product. Always use REALASH in a sanitary manner in order to avoid contamination by bacteria known to cause infections. Do not share it or allow the tip of the bottle to contact surrounding structures, fingers or any other unintended structure. IF you wear contact lenses, we recommend that you remove them prior to the application. They may be reinserted after 15 minutes. 

After a month of usage, I can finally see the results. Eyelashes become longer as compared to my original lashes. The lashes are long to the extent I do not have to depend on fake eyelashes anymore.

Thicker and fuller eyelashes after 1 month of usage! :D

I noticed that my lashes grew stronger than before especially after removing my mascara from the eyelashes each time. No more weak eyelashes falling down during the mascara removal anymore. Yay! 

Typically, eyelashes need 30 days to grow. The main problem is that most times mature eyelashes fall before new ones are fully grown and this causes a visually unpleasant effect. To achieve the best results it's recommended to use the serum once a day, preferably in the evening after removing make-up, by applying the enhancer to the upper eyelid. One packet of this 3 ml nutrient is sufficient for a 4-5-month therapy. REALASH is easy to apply and you can easily do it yourself. One stroke and your eyelashes are nurtured so you can enjoy your new, extraordinary look!


3 easy steps to the eyelashes of your dreams:
1. Remove make-up carefully and dry your skin.
2. Apply it gently stroking the nutrient to the upper eyelid. 
3. Smile and enjoy the results! 


For more information on this serum, please visit www.realash.co.uk.

[Review] Shizens Lip Tattoo ❤

Holla readers! Happy New Year guys! Hope it's not too late wish you guys! So today is only the 11th day of year 2015. How did you guys celebrate New Year? Not sure if any of you remembered that The Butterfly Project organized a Christmas party for the bloggers and we are entitled to bring home a box of beauty products home for review! *wide grin*

Anyway today I have the honor to introduce one of the star product from Shizens - Shizens Lip Tattoo!


Shizens Lip Tattoo is something new to me. Before that, I was wondering what's this Lip Tattoo all about. Is it a lipstick that will be on your lips forever? Finally I got the opportunity to lay my hands on this Lip Tattoo.  This Lip Tattoo can be applied anytime, anywhere you wish. Wanna know how it works?

This Lip Tattoo is quite unique. It comes in white color and less than a minute, it will transform into few shades of pink according to our body temperature.


I am curious to know how it works as I am not a girl who likes to apply lipstick every day since I have super chapped lips and not many lip balms can cure this. So whenever I apply lipstick, the lipstick tends to make my lips super dry and cracked even though I do apply lip balm.

 

I have a lot of lipsticks at home and this will be one of the unique product that I have ever owned. This Lip Tattoo claims to add a spread of moisture to relieve the formation of fine lines and helps to lighten dark pigmented lip and gradually turn them into rosy tones. 


I do not have the habit of using the applicator and applied it straight on my lips. So normally I would apply it on my hand and I would use my finger to spread it on my lips.


It works well in the first few hours after applying it. However, my lips started to crack again. So normally I would apply lip treatment or lip balm before applying Lip Tattoo because I want to retain the moisture on the lips for long hours especially I am working under air-conditioned environment.

Here's a photo of my chapped lips and after applying the Lip Tattoo and lip treatment.

I do not have the habit of applying lipgloss after every meal. So definitely this is a good product for me as it will retain on my lips for long hours. Even if I am back from work, my lips are still in rosy tones which looks like I have applied lipgloss. (:

My before and after photo. (:

I have super natural rosy pink color on my lips after applying it. The texture is non-sticky and it's easy to glide on my lips especially after I have applied my lip treatment.

My pouty pink lips :P

On the other hand, this Lips Tattoo comes in a very simple gold packaging and it caught my attention especially the gold colour packaging. Shizens is known to have produced simple packaging and yet the products are pretty expensive as compared to other brands in the market. However I personally think that this product is worth investing as I am the lazy type of girl who do not like to apply lipstick or lipgloss after each meal.

Natural look with natural rosy lips. *teehee*

With this Lip Tattoo, I can actually save a lot of time in applying lipgloss or lipstick from time to time. :P By having this Lip Tattoo, I am able to save money on lip products.


Shizens Lip Tattoo is available in all Shizens outlets at RM168. For more information, check out their social media platforms on their latest promotions:
