#mydreamcurl Presents Roller Lash Mascara! ❤

Holla guys! How's CNY for those who celebrated CNY? Mine was great as I spent most of my time with my family and relatives. This year was rather packed for me as I did not have the time to meet up with long lost friends. Sorry guys. 

Anyway, today I would like to share with you an awesome mascara which was revealed on Valentine's Day. I received a package from Sephora and did a short review of the mascara in Instagram. I was fortunate enough to be one of the 50 people in Malaysia to own this exclusive mascara before anyone else!


I made a wild guess and I did not guess it correctly. I attended the party to reveal this particular #mydreamcurl mascara at Sephora Starhill and it turned out to be mascara from Benefit. *wide grin*


Introducing Roller Lash mascara from Benefit. This super curling and lifting mascara is like rollers for your lashes.


The party was a fantastic one. I got the opportunity to play a few games while waiting for the rest of the bloggers to arrive. Below are the photos taken of the games that were played on that day.

Tossing the eyelash curler to the bin. Say goodbye to eyelash curler!

Basically this Roller Lash mascara has the eye-opening Hook n Roll brush which grabs, separates, lifts and  curls lashes while the curve-setting formula holds for 12 hours.

 

The party was all about revealing the Roller Lash mascara while trying out the mascara and had some chitchat session with the bloggers. I had not been seeing some of the bloggers for quite sometimes. Therefore, we took this opportunity to spend time together and catching up.

Selfie with Sarah and the pretty Benefit mirror. :P

We even had props to play with while taking polaroid photos.


 Check out some of the photos taken on that day with pretty props and colourful refreshments!

 

FYI, Roller Lash is their super-curling and lifting mascara that provides long-lasting curl while they're real! mascara is their jet black lengthening mascara for lashes beyond relief. For super curl and length, apply Roller Lash mascara first to curl and lift your lashes then layer they're real! lengthening mascara on top. 

 Say goodbye to eyelash curler! :D

The mascara literally lifts up my eyelashes to give me bigger, more open eyes and I do not need to use eyelash curler anymore with their Hook n Roll brush! Yay! :D To apply, gently wiggle the wand from base of lashes to tip. Make sure you repeat across your lashline, making sure to catch every lash. However, do bear in mind that this is water-resistant but not water-proof as it can be easily washed off with warm water.

Aupres Aqua Energy Launch @ Muse by Watsons ❤

Aupres launched a whole new revolutionary moisturizing line this season - Aupres Aqua Energy at Muse by Watsons couple of weeks ago. The Aupres Aqua Energy is specially formulated with unique Green Tea Complex to soothe agitated cells (dry, heated cells) and its exclusive Smart Moisture Complex* (SMC) that replenishes skin with the right amount of moisture while conditioning its moisture-retaining environment. 

This exclusive technology allows each cell to trap in moisture abundantly, allowing the skin to brim with purified moisture even when exposed to severe dryness.


With this new range, skin is able to radiate luster created from moisture purified deep inside. The Aupres Aqua Energy features both basic skincare and special care products. Its basic skincare consists of Cleansing Foam, Moisture Lotion, and Moisture Emulsion while their special care product includes its signature Moisture Capturing Essence, Cream, and Eye Cream.


Zhou Dongyu, an up-and-coming Chinese actress, is the ambassador for AUPRES AQUA ENERGY. She is also currently an undergraduate student of the School of Performing Arts at Beijing Film Academy. Zhou achieved wild popularity when she debuted in 2010 as the leading actress Jingqiu in the movie Under the Hawthorn Tree directed by Zhang Yimou. Zhou’s outstanding performance earned her Best Actress at the 56th Valladolid International Film Festival (Spain), Outstanding New Actress at the 14th China Huabiao Film Awards, and Best New Performer at the 20th Shanghai Film Critics’ Awards.

Two types - Rich Moisture and Deep Moisture

  •  Cleansing and Purifying “Dry and Hot Cells”
Due to the stresses in the urban environment, skin is constantly dehydrated as skin cells get overly excited and aggravated, resulting in dehydrated skin. Through the cleansing and purification ability of the unique Green Tea Complex, skin is able to improve its water retaining ability.

  • Moisture Locking: Increasing Skin’s Moisture Retention Ability
Recover skin cell’s moisture retention ability, keeping skin hydrated for an extended period. Contain high levels of Natural Yeast-Derived Amino Acid Type Polymer, an innovation to skin’s moisture retention ability.

  • Smart Moisture Complex (SMC): Moisturizing Ingredients to Support Moisture-Locking
Skin is well hydrated from the inside out with SMC with three key components – Hyaluronic Acid, Responsive Moisturizing Component, Angelica Acutiloba – to achieve a High Moisture Retention, Long Lasting, High Penetration effect.


This Cleansing Foam swiftly forms fine and rich-bubbles and effectively cleans dirt in pores and fine lines while removing aged substances from the stratum corneum. It gently cleanses the skin while retaining necessary moisture. The Aupres team demonstrated to us on how to create large foam from the Cleansing Foam on that day.


We were divided into three groups which consists of 3 people in a group to compete against each other on which group to create the most foam from the Cleansing Foam. I was in a team with Stephy and Shini and too bad we did not win.


I was amazed with this powerful Cleansing Foam from Aupres Aqua Energy range which can create so much :D After that, the Aupres team briefly explained the products one by one and how to use the products efficiently.

They started off with Aupres Moisture Lotion. This is a thorough moisturizing lotion that has high penetration, strong moisturization and long-lasting effect. This lotion gives the skin ample moisture, creating fully moisturized, translucent and soft skin. I like how the lotion gives me softer skin on the back of my hands when I tried it. Remember to pat the excess lotion on the skin to ensure better penetration to the skin.


Next the Aupres team demonstrated the Moisture Capturing Essence which is the star product. It is a highly-functional moisturizing essence that not only exerts excellent moisturizing power and moisture-retaining ability but also promotes the strength of the skin to create its own moisture. 


This essence increase moisture-locking, trigger and improves skin's self hydration ability and condition skin's moisture retaining environment. It comes with a nice spatula in their packaging and has a sweet floral scent that adds a relaxing and comfortable experience to your everyday skincare regime. This essence keeps the skin hydrated for hours and it did not leave the skin feeling sticky at all. It is recommended to use the Moisture Capturing Essence in the morning and evening, after skin treatment.

Angeline was the model of the day. The Aupres team showed us steps by steps on how to use the Aupres products. Since Angeline had makeup on her face, the only trick was not to remove it completely by makeup remover.

 Application of Aupres Moisture Lotion

You would have to use the Aupres Moisture Lotion to do the trick. Put on the lotion, essence and the emulsion before applying makeup. You can use this step in case you lack of time to remove your makeup completely and you only need to go for touch up for an event or party.

Next step is to use Aupres Moisture Capturing Essence.

Aupres Moisture Emulsion is up next.

After the skincare application, it's time to apply some makeup products to create natural looking look for Angeline.


The Aupres team applied blusher, mascara and concealer before applying the lip gloss for the final look.

Angeline's final look. (:

We were given the chance to try out the other Aupres products. I did not know that Aupres has makeup products. All these while I thought they only product skincare products and surprisingly their make up products are really pretty especially on the packaging.

Pretty eyeshadow palettes which come in gold colour packaging. *drool*

They also demonstrated their mascara which you can bend the mascara according the size and shape of the eyes.They tried on Shini's eyelashes and the effects of the lashes were good. They managed to create long, thicker and fuller lashes. *jaw drop*


Other than that, Aupres too have the pretty lipgloss which comes in 4 pretty colours. I personally love the orange colour and I think I would purchase it since I do not have the orange lipgloss.


Thank you Aupres Malaysia and Muse by Watsons for having us! It's a great day to mingle with the bloggers after so long of hiatus. For more info on their latest range, promotions and etc, check out their Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/aupresmalaysia.

Boyce Avenue Live in KL @ KL Live Centre ❤

Boyce Avenue was here on last Thursday marking their first time here in Malaysia. They performed at KL Life Center with their guest performer, Narmi and special guest, Miss Elizabeth Tan.


A 25-minute drive turned out to be an hour 15 minutes ride because it was raining heavily making a few of the roads heading to KL Life Centre were slightly flooded and caused the traffic to jam up. However, the luck was on my side because they had not started their performance yet. Hooray! And I managed to meet up with some of my friends before the concert started.

With the bloggers. (:

We hurriedly walked in and waited patiently for the concert to start. Sis and I took a few selfies and chitchatted as usual. Sis and I share the same interest when it comes to music. Both of us enjoy listening to music covers from different YouTubers and even share the same music genre except for trance. LOL! However I am glad to have someone who is there for me to talk to about music all the time. :)

Sis and I. She used to blog but she stopped blogging ever since she started her degree.

Next up, they had performance from Narmi and special guest appearance, Miss Elizabeth Tan to sing 'Lucky' on that night.


Elizabeth was standing quite close to me and I was hesitating to take photos with her because I was shy. However, I had the guts to approach her and had her to take selfie with me. Yay! She is super tall and gorgeous with powerful voice. *jelly*

With Elizabeth, the famous Malaysian YouTuber. (:

The moment we had been waiting for. Performance from Boyce Avenue! The siblings were looking so hot that night! *jaw drop* They played a few of their originals and some music covers from Avicii, Katy Perry and etc. You guys can check out the videos which I had recorded that night below:


Since I reached there around 8.20pm, I was already standing right behind the stage. So I am sorry if my videos and photos turned out to be blur and low quality.


They performed quite a number of songs unfortunately my iPhone ran out of battery. So I managed to take only a few photos and videos. Nevertheless, I enjoyed every single performance from Boyce Avenue that night and hope to watch their performance again!

Below is one of my favourite cover from them and I recorded it for memories.


Thank you Livescape Asia for making this fan girl of Boyce Avenue's dream came true. I can't wait to witness more YouTubers from different world to perform in Malaysia in the future! :D

[Beauty Review] Love Your Skin Again With Silk Peel™ DermalInfusion™ ❤

A couple of weeks ago, I went for SilkPeel™ DermalInfusion™ at Face Factors Clinic, which is located at Block D of Solaris Dutamas (Publika). Hearing the word peel, I was interested to try it out given that in already in my late 20's, I had already started developing pigmentation. Been hearing a lot of reviews that this treatment could assist in lightening age spots, I was excited to try this out.

 

Silk Peel™ combines the process of microdermabrasion along with the simultanous delivery of a skincare solution depending on your need.


If you are looking for a solution to your skin conditions that can be done in non-invasive phases during your lunch hour, won't leave your skin dry or excessively irritated, and delivers tangible results that last, then you should try Silk Peel™ DermalInfusion™. 

Prior to the start of the treatment, the skin would be cleansed to be prepared for treatment and the right mix of topicals are selected based on your skin condition.


SilkPeel™ effectively treats all skin types and addresses a wide range of dermatological conditions including hyperpigmentation, acne, photodamage, dehydration and fine line wrinkles. Operating on a closed-loop vacuum system, the medical grade diamonds exfoliate the outer layer of skin while delivering a topical dermaceutical to the skin at a controlled intensity, stimulating new cell growth.

L-R: Vitamin C, Hydrating Formula, Clarifying Solutions and Lumixyl Pro-Infusion

An antioxidant solution for dull, tired skin, the SilkPeel™ DermalInfusion™ Vitamin C solutions helps remedy the effects of environmental damage. The overall appearance of the skin is improved immediately and targeted ingredients help ward off further UV damage in the long term.

SilkPeel™ DermalInfusion™'s Hydrating Formula uses Hyaluronic Acid to re-hydrate chronically dehydrated skin. The procedure moisturizes, increases epidermal thickness and helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.


SilkPeel™ DermalInfusion™'s Clarifying Solution delivers salicylic acid safely and effectively to improve the appearance of cystic and pustule acne. The added benefit of aloe helps soothe inflamed and irritated skin

SilkPeel™ DermalInfusion™'s Brightening Solution features the revolutionary Lumixyl™peptide, a non-irritating and effective topical for the improvement of uneven pigmentation, dark spots and an overall glowing complexion

 

Based on my skin condition, the expert from the clinic suggested to me to use Lumixyl Pro-Infusion and Skin Hydration Solution with Sodium Hyaluronic Acid. My skin was slightly dry and I have uneven skin tone. For your information, Silk Peel™ DermalInfusion™ is the first patented treatment that provides both non-invasive exfoliation and delivery of skin-specific topical solutions under pressure, leaving the patients with fresher-feeling and better-looking skin.

SilkPeel™ is safe and painless, allowing the patients to reap the benefits on a accelerated basis without the complications and discomfort usually associated with microdermabrasion, chemical peels, lasers and other invasive treatment. In addition, SilkPeel™ is unique because it does not use crystals or other abrasive particles that can irritate your skin. The right topical solutions would then mixed in a bottle and run under the machine.


You could see in the photo above that the crystal clear bottle on the right hand side is the bottle where all the impurities would be collected in after the whole 20-minutes of treatment. SilkPeel™ is easily performed on your lunch hour so you can return immediately to your normal activities which is a facial that I would go for each time.


The SilkPeel Dermabrasion combines diamond-wand microdermabrasion technology with a unique solution delivery system that penetrates deep into the skin’s layers. The skin is not broken in any way, but the top layer of skin is gently buffed away with the diamond head.

 

This process removes dead skin cells, any pigmentation on the top layer of skin, and also buffs away fine lines and wrinkles. The topical solution that is applied during the procedure sinks deep into the dermal layer and begins to activate the cell regeneration process.

Silk Peel™ treatment in progress.

It was painless. I just got a slight shock when the first suction was done on my skin because I had no idea how it worked. However, after a few times, I rested my eyes because it was soothing even though the treatment was on-going.

 The difference between the left and the right side. 

I can see a slight firming effect on the right side as shown in the photo when I was using the treatment. A super gentle treatment if you compare it to the likes of intense peels or lasers. Right after the treatment, my face was noticeably brighter and fresher and the blackheads on the nose had been significantly reduced. However, if you want to further brighten up the skin, you should return for at least another 3-4 weekly treatments to see the results. 

 The impurities that were sucked out from my face.

Overall, I felt fresh as if I had just undergone proper facial with extraction. The surface of my skin was smooth and I could see that my skin was glowing. There was no pain at all and they also put a layer of sunscreen as an added protection before I left. 


This Silk Peel™ DermalInfusion™ treatment is highly recommended for those who opt for a painless and less abrasive alternative to treat hyperpigmentation or acne problems or just to prevent early signs of aging by ensuring the right nutrients and hydration gets to your skin.

 Brighter looking skin after one treatment. (:
