[Review] Burn-Free with Philips PerfectCare Azur Steam Iron ❤

Since young, my mummy taught me on how to iron my own school uniform. I never once skip ironing my own school uniform because mummy said that wrinkled uniform would actually gave bad impressions to my teachers and friends around me. 

Ever since then, I started ironing my own clothes not until one day I burnt my shirt. Just like this:

I was wondering what have I done wrong? Is the temperature which I set for the material of the shirt was too high? How should I know that this shirt is made from which material? I was confused. I always put at the high temperature when ironing my school uniforms but this temperature does not work on my shirt this time. I felt so clumsy. Why didn't I try it first before ironing it on my shirt straight? 

Then I was introduced to this PerfectCare Azur steam iron by Philips. The new PerfectCare Azur steam iron offers you an innovative way to iron garments. We all know the fuss with traditional irons: choosing the right temperature for tough and delicate fabrics, waiting for the iron to warm up and cool down to avoid the risk of damaging clothes with a too hot iron. 

PerfectCare Azur Iron by Philips

You guys must be wondering. How this iron will save you from the burns on your clothing? Did you guys actually see the difference of this iron and the old iron that you have at home? Good news here! You can finally iron any ironable garment from silk, to linen, to cotton, to cashmere; in any order without adjusting the temperature! 

PerfectCare Azur has the best way to remove wrinkles effectively which is a combination of intense steam and optimal soleplate temperature. To get optimal steam, the soleplate temperature needs to be just above the steam temperature. 

Cheers to dial-free temperature settings! 

The latest revolution in ironing to deliver the perfect combination of steam and temperature. It is made to ensure you with speedy ironing, great results on tough creases, no setting required and safe on all ironable fabrics.

This is the perfect combination of steam and temperature because:
1. Smart Control Processor setting the right temperature
2. HeatFlow technology enabling an even steam and temperature balance

This PerfectCare Azur delivers perfect results without the risk of burn or shine. With OptimalTemp technology, ironing is now simpler than ever! Yay! 

The blue light will stop blinking to indicate that it's ready to be used

T-ionicGlide is Philips' most premium soleplate. This soleplate delivers a new standard in glide and scratch resistance for OptimalTemp irons. The patented new coating will secure excellent results. The carefully designed shape and vent holes provide an even steam distribution for easy crease removal with the steam iron.

T-ionicGlide Soleplate

This iron has been designed to be used with tap water. Double Activ Calc Clean: A smart combination of Calc Pills and a regular Self Clean reduce the scale built-up. 

Use demineralized water to ensure a consistent steam flow from the iron

For better ironing results, it's recommended to use demineralized water to ensure a consistent steam flow from the iron. If the colour of SmartLight is amber instead of blue, this is a reminder that you should perform Calc-Clean function

The Quattro Precision Tip of the iron allows me to reach into the most difficult to reach areas while ironing. I can finally iron closely around the buttons with the button groove. 

Quattro Precision Tip of the iron

Continuous steam output of up to 45 g/min also gives the perfect amount of steam to remove all the creases efficiently. The steam boost can also be used for vertical steaming and on tough creases as well.

Overall Review
At first I was sceptical about this technology. But after several usage of this iron, it proved me wrong. It was 100% easy to use especially when no adjustment required. I can now iron all the ironable garments one after the other without having to wait or to adjust the iron's temperature dial.

Before and After

I was amazed with the instant results. The iron managed to iron all the wrinkles on my blouse immediately. I also like how it shuts off automatically when left unattended. If left on its heel rest, the steam iron will switch off in 3 minutes while if left resting on the soleplate it will take 2 minutes before the iron shuts off. 

Mama says:
"The iron was slightly heavy that the old iron but my hand grips perfectly on the handle of the iron. I liked how this PerfectCare Azur iron can iron all my bedsheets smoothly and nicely. This particular bedsheets are hard to be ironed by using normal iron and this Perfect Care Azur proves to be safe on all fabrics. I do not have to spend most of my time by facing the iron since ironing all the hard fabrics using PerfectCare Azur can be so easy and simple."

The Philips PerfectCare Azur range is available at major electrical and departmental stores and at a recommended price range of RM459 to RM599 (before GST). For more information, please visit

[Beauty Review] Philips Easy Natural Curler ❤

Do you find a hard time curling your manes with the curling tong? The curling tong you use will burn your fingers accidentally each time you try to curl your hair? No worries girls. Now you can save yourself from the burns by using this new Philips Easy Natural Curler.

Philips Easy Natural Curler

Building on 60 years of beauty heritage, this Easy Natural Curler from Philips is Philips' latest innovative solution to help women achieve stylish natural-looking curls easily.

The Tulip shape curler uses innovative clip and curl plates to automatically clip and hold the lock of hair while styling, allowing women to curl their tresses with just one hand, even at the back of the head. The styling plates are designed to prevent accidental brushes and burns to the hair. 

Perfect curls done by using Philips Easy Natural Curler
To reduce hair damage, the plates are coated with protective ceramic to ensure even heat distribution for shiny and soft hair. The plates can only be heated to a professional temperature of 200°C which also guarantees nice results even on thick hair. 

One click to open and close the ceramic plates

It only takes 30 seconds for the Philips Easy Natural Curler to be ready for use and it is suitable for short, medium and long hair lengths. 

'Before' and 'After' results

Some of the curls were done in alternate directions to create more natural look.

Overall Review
I always having problems curling my hair with curling tong especially when I find it hard to curl the back of my head even when I have super long hair. It's either some of the part of the head are not curled at all or I would have just simply curled them without having the nice bouncy curls. Sometimes I would just beg my sister to help me to curl my hair before going to events which is quite troublesome.

A few weeks ago, I decided to chop off my long hair and turn my ugly mane into shoulder length hair to get rid of split ends and dry mane. Since I have an even shorter hair now, I guess it would be tougher for me to curl my hair with the normal curling tong. When I first received this Easy Natural Curler from Philips, I was wondering how this curler would create natural curls like how it was shown on the box. I tried using the curler according to the instructions given and to my surprise, I fell in love with it immediately after the 1st attempt.

My 1st attempt. What do you think?
This unique Tulip shape helped me to create natural and effortless curls in just a few simple steps. This curler is also suitable for medium and short hair lengths too as I can curl my hair with it effortlessly. However, for the curling process, it might took awhile for my hair as I have super thick hair and it takes some time for get my curls done for the whole head. Anyway, I love how the curler is being so light, compact and easy-to-use design which makes it easy for me to carry it in my luggage while travelling. 

I am pretty sure that most of you are worried that styling your hair too often will damage your hair. Fret not as I am going to introduce another 2 awesome products from Philips which will not only damage your hair but protect your hair too. Introducing ThermoProtect Ionic Hairdryer and Ionic Styling Brush!

ThermoProtect Ionic Hairdryer comes with asymmetric massaging diffuser. This hairdryer features multiple speed and temperature settings, massaging diffuser and 11 mm styling nozzle. You can use a diffuser to maximise volume and enhances curls. With 6 speed and temperature settings including ThermoProtect, it dries up your hair quickly without damaging your hair. It also gives my hair an instant care with ionic conditioning. Charged negative ions eliminate static, condition your hair and smooth the hair cuticles to intensify hair's shine and glossiness.

I could actually see the difference between the current hairdryer and this Philips ThermoProtect Ionic hairdryer. Normally with the current hairdryer, I need to apply a certain amount of hair serum to maintain the smoothness and frizz-free hair. However with Philips ThermoProtect Ionic hairdryer, I do not have to worry about it anymore. In fact I skipped applying for few days and my hair is still maintained at the soft and smooth condition. (:

On the other hand, if you find that your hair is not up to your expectation after drying your hair with Philips ThermoProtect hairdryer, you can try using this Philips Ionic Styling Brush at one in order to achieve smoother and frizz-free hair.

The ionizer generates negative ions to neutralize positive charge of static electricity. It helps to reduce frizz and bring back smoothness and shine to my hair instantly. I would suggest to use the Ionic Styling Brush when the hair is slightly wet because the brush performs better. You can brush your hair after washing your hair but be sure to dry your hair till it's 70% dry as over dry your hair may affect the results.

Now you can see the instant results of your hair with the usage of ThermoProtect hairdryer and Ionic Styling brush from Philips! My hair was softer than before ever since I have been using it every now and then without hair serum. Yay! No worries about too much heat application to your hair as these two powerful tools will reduce the damages on the hair!

Philips Easy Natural Curler will be available at major electrical and departmental stores and at a recommended price of RM169. For more information please visit

[Beauty Review] 3CE Lip Marker and Highlight Beam ❤

Holla readers! April is going to end soon and month of May is approaching soon. Can you believe it? Time flies super fast. It's an amazing year for me except for the price increment of beauty products, groceries and etc due to GST. However, I think I am smart enough to purchase all the necessary stuffs that I want and will not buy for now till I really need them (let's see. lol)

Anyway today I would like to review two products from 3CE courtesy of Muse by Watsons and The Butterfly Project which are Lip Marker and Highlight Beam.

Let me started off with Lip Marker from 3CE.

When it comes to Lip Marker, there are a list of questions that I have in my mind.

"Is it some sort like a marker pen that we used in daily basis?"
"How will this work?"
"Will the colour remain on my lips forever like how permanent marker works?"

3CE Lip Marker

The shape of the Lip Marker turns out to be a pen marker that we use on a daily basis except that it comes in Orange colour and it can be applied on lips. Kids out there, never assume that all the markers out there can be applied on lips. You can only use this Lip Marker from 3CE to apply on your lips only alright? :P

3CE Lip Marker in Orange

Lip Marker comes with 3 colours which are Orange, Red and Pink. I was given the Orange colour for review. Frankly speaking, this would be my first time trying out orange lipstick and it would be fun to play with orange colour. *winkz* 

I love this product because this marker type will automatically control the flow. So I do not have to worry about applying too much on the lips. However, you can choose to add in more layers for a more vivid colour just like this:

Or you can also use like a highlighter for a natural stain effect or create gradient effect look on the lips. (: 

With Lip Marker, it's rather hard to create the gradient lip effect as the tip of the lip marker is not soft. It's hard to apply on my dry and wrinkled lips especially when the tip is hard. Other that that, it dries up super fast causing me to feel hard to apply the gradient lips effect. So I would suggest to you girls to use ring finger to do the dabbing method on the outer lips before it dries up to have more gradient effect. (: 

Before and after photo with my vivid orange colour lips. (: 

The only drawback of the product is that this product cannot be applied on oily or wet lips. If your lips tend to be oily, this ink-like lip marker will not be able to flow out. This principle works the same on the marker pen that we have on daily basis when we write on oily surfaces.

So when I use this Lip Marker from 3CE, I can't apply lip balm or lip treatment on my lips (I have problems with dry lips) because the Lip Marker will not stay on my oily lips. So I would suggest to you guys to do lips exfoliation or lip mask before using this Lip Marker so that your lips won't look too dry and cracked.

As for the Highlight Beam, this is another amazing product from 3CE. The highlight beam can be used for glamourous face and body. 

Highlight Beam from 3CE

Each bottle of 3CE Highlight Beam has a sticker to prove its authenticity. Be sure to check out for the sticker on each 3CE products to ensure that the products are authentic. 

This Highlight Beam has a sweet pink beige with pearly shimmers added to create beautiful, three-dimensional face and body. The silver pearls in sweet pink base smoothens your dull skin tone for a glamorous appearance

Photos were taken with flash. (:

Tried and tested the Highlight Beam on the wrist and you can see a glittery area on the wrist. This highlighter will not show an obvious glitter on your face or body. It works the same as a highlighter for contouring purpose.

I have a combination of oily and dry skin. So I mix the Highlight Beam with my Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser for a more natural look. The ratio of the Tinted Moisturiser has to be more than the Highlight Beam to avoid excessive glittery look on my face.

Not much of the Highlight Beam on the skin (as you can see from the photo above) but it will also give some glowing look on the skin. I applied on my whole face since I have a dull tone skin. My skin has immediate glowing effect after applying the Highlight Beam. 

A mixture of foundation and Highlight Beam on my whole face. 

I would also strongly suggest to use beauty sponge (I used Beauty Blender which I got from Luxola many many months ago) to create natural looking effect on my skin since I want a natural look. 

Honestly speaking I love the Beauty Blender a lot. This Beauty Blender is one of the best beauty sponge that I ever had. With the usage of the Beauty Blender,  I can opt for a more natural looking for daily look. The tip of the Beauty Blender can be used to apply on the areas that are hard to be reached with hands or brushes especially on the inner corner of my eyes.

Overall, I love how the Highlight Beam works on my skin. Nevertheless, when you mix the Highlight Beam and foundation, be sure to apply concealer on your eye bags or dark eye circles first as this Highlight Beam does not give a full coverage on the eye bags and dark eye circles. 

The final of myself with Highlight Beam and Lip Marker from 3CE

There are many other 3CE products that you girls should try. I can't wait to try other products such as Lip Pigment, Pore Silky Balm and many more. To know more about 3CE products, you check them out at Muse by Watsons which is located at Sunway Pyramid.
