Laneige Beauty Road with BB Cushion Tour ❤

Laneige, the global beauty brand is on its way to conquer all 7 cities around Asia with the debut of its global beauty project "Laneige Beauty Road". Malaysia was the 3rd stop following Bangkok and Singapore. I had the opportunity to be part of this Laneige Beauty Road when it was held in Kuala Lumpur recently.


'Laneige Beauty Road with BB Cushion' is the first global beauty tour of its kind, which aims to introduce the BB Cushion makeup trend to parts of Asia after it became a hit in Korea. 


The BB Cushion, which was first introduced in 2011, has gained popularity with its multi-functional use and convenient touch-up anywhere, anytime. It has evolved from a must-have makeup item to a makeup trend in Korea. Most of you would have known that I have been a BB Cushion user for almost 3 years now. *wide grin*


Many of you know that Laneige BB Cushion comes in two types which are Whitening and Pore Control. The Laneige BB Cushion is now available in 6 shades namely True Beige, Natural Beige, Sand Beige, Brown Beige and the two new shades which include Pink Beige and Cocoa Beige

Miss Belinda Chee, the emcee of the day with Hwang Se-On, the Korea's celebrity model

There was a special appearance by Hwang Se-On, the Korea's celebrity model who offered modelling and photoshoot tips. She shared with us some of her beauty secrets in the workshop. We, the bloggers also had the opportunity to take a group photo with her. Oh my,  did I tell you that she speaks fluent English too? Of course not forgetting that she is so tall and gorgeous! *jaw drop*

Group photo session with Miss Hwang Se-On
The Laneige Global Makeup team also offered makeup techniques to help one look their best in photos. Miss Cat Koh was there to give us some live demonstration makeup tips on that day itself. Miss Cat Koh, Laneige Korea Makeup Artist is a cute and funny lady and she speaks good English as well. 


Miss Cat Koh started off with spraying Laneige Brightening Sparkling Water Capsule Mist before applying any makeup primer. This Capsule Mist is a fresh sparkling water mist made of highly-concentrated sparkling water capsules, a boost to clear and transparent skin through promoting cutaneous circulation by turning over the dead skin and fine carbonic acid massage with brightening effects (containing 47% of sparkling water). 


Next is to apply Laneige Lumi Block Primer which is a primer that evens out the surface of skin and controls sebum to create a matte finish that blocks radiance. It helps to tightens the unevenness, pores and blemishes on your skin for a smooth finish with the net-like structure of pore smoothing complex.  Use this primer as the first step of makeup and apply thinly on the cheeks, forehead and chin.


Next up is to apply Laneige BB Cushion Pore Control after the primer. This BB Cushion Pore Control from Laneige can help to achieve perfect, flawless and pore-free makeup finish as it is formulated to target large pores. It comes with 6 multi benefits with only 1 touch. 

- Pore Control
Pore Purifying Complex purifies pores and protects skin against pore trouble.

- Pore Coverage 
Excellent coverage of pore and skin bumps with soft focus powder which diffuses light.

- Semi-matte Finish 
Powerful dual powder formula of anti-darkening and sebum control powder regulates shine for a fresh and supple-looking complexion.

- Water Resistant 
Strong resistance against perspiration and sebum for long-lasting makeup.

- Soothing Effect 
Fresh cooling sensation instantly cools the skin surface to refresh and soothe fatigue skin.

- UV Protection 
SPF 50+ PA+++ offers strong protection against harmful UV rays and sun damage. 



Miss Cat Koh showed us the next makeup tips by applying Laneige Brush Pact. This Brush Pact lets you choose different complexions with the quality silky brush that you want to achieve - Texture-improving Radiance, Matte Radiance and Splendid Radiance. She taught us to apply in circular motion especially on forehead, area between eyebrows, cheeks and jaw areas (areas with excessive oil) to prevent shine. 


Next is to apply eyeshadow on the model's eyes. She used Laneige Pure Radiant Shadow in Cashmere Coral colour with a slight pink or coral colour on the eyes to achieve natural makeup look which is the trend in Korea nowadays. 


Next up would be applying eyeliner on the eyes. Miss Cat Koh used Laneige Multi Shaping Eyeliner on the model's eye. To create the Korean makeup look, she suggested to us not to apply the liner according the shape of the eyes. Instead, she applied in between the eyelashes to create a more natural makeup look. She also mentioned that no winged look should be applied on the corner of the eyes as Korean makeup does not have winged eye makeup look. 


She then applied in a zig-zag motion on the eyelashes by using the Laneige Volume Setting Mascara. This mascara helps to achieve curl silky, denser and defined lashes without smudge or clumping or flaking. The curl also stays for a long period of time. 


I took video on how to apply blusher on Asian face and you may check out the video to see how Miss Cat Koh demonstrated the blusher application on the model's face. 


Miss Cat Koh ended the live makeup demonstration with lipstick application. She used Laneige Two Tone Lip Bar to create a two-tone colour on the lips for a more lively and fashionable look. 

Here's the before and after makeup look done by Miss Cat Koh. 
The event was filled with never-ending activities and excitement. Among the attractions at the Laneige Beauty Road with BB Cushion' Tour are BB Cushion testing stations, free giveaways and fun games, complimentary makeover sessions with the help of Laneige makeup artists from Korea and also a contest with a daily prize. 

Choulyin was trying out the BB Cushion Pore Control on her face. 
With its unique tour, Laneige is on its way to conquer 7 major cities in 4 Asian countries starting with Bangkok, Thailand (17th - 19th July) followed by Singapore (24th - 26th July) and currently Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (27th July - 2nd August). Following Kuala Lumpur, the 'Laneige Beauty Road Tour' will land itself in China, covering various cities including Beijing, Xi'an, Chengdu and Shanghai (4th - 27th September). 

With Tammy and I. 
Of course bloggers would not leave the place without taking selfies / wefies with other bloggers. So here's a photo or two with Tammy and Choulyin. 

With Tammy, Choulyin and I. 
Laneige hopes to bring the popularity of the BB Cushion to the next level by turning it into a global makeup trend starting with Asia and eventually to other parts of the world with this Laneige Beauty Road with BB Cushion tour. Thank you Laneige Malaysia and The Butterfly Project for having me! 


Last but not least, a photo with the mascot! :D

[Beauty Review] SkinSoul Volume Attack Mascara ❤

Have you ever encountered that a mascara which can nourish, grow, thicken and curl your eyelashes as you use it daily? If you have not, here's a good news to you because SkinSoul has introduced their best-selling Natural Volume Attack Mascara which is a safe, natural formula that gives you naturally fuller, longer and beautifully curled lashes as you use it. 

SkinSoul Volume Attack Mascara - RM195
Their voluminising mascara is packed with Mulberry Extract to nourish and strengthen lashes over time, while its infused Lash Curling Complex promotes seductively lasting curls. The clump-free and defining applicator brush coats each layer perfectly for a lengthened, thick and luscious look that enhances your eye's beauty all day long.

  • 100% paraben and prostaglandin free
  • Zero use of hair growth chemicals that can cause blurred vision
  • Organic, natural mulberry extract that nourishes, strengthens and curls lashes
  • Visibly grows and thickens lashes in 8 weeks
  • Voluminous coating that lengthens, curls, defines lashes from tip to top


Many people do not realise a lot of common eyelash growth formulas contain harmful chemicals that can cause toxin buildup and even blurred vision. Additionally, harsh habits such as continuous use of lash curlers, fake eyelashes, lash tinting or extensions hurt the sensitive eye area and follicles, eventually leading to eyelash fall and thinner lashes. 


It is so easy to apply and not clumpy when I applied a few coats on the eyelashes. Best of all, it's easy to be removed with water-based makeup remover. Since it's my 3rd week applying it, I can see the slight difference on the eyelashes.


I am excited that I can finally flaunt a more luscious, voluminous, longer and curled eyelashes even after taking off your mascara. Everything becomes so simple with this mascara! (: 

Long lashes after the mascara application

Anyway, by mentioning the #SSJanice, readers will be entitled to purchase SkinSoul Skin Shield Travelling Set at RM388. That's not all, readers will be also entitled to walk away with SkinSoul Skin Shield set worth RM100 by minimum purchase of RM100 and above in a single receipt.

[Beauty Review] C-Jello Collagen Jelly Bar ❤

Most of you would have known that I have blogged about C-Jello Collagen Jelly Bar previously.  To those who haven't, you may refer to the link here: http://janiceyeap.blogspot.com/2015/08/c-jello-collagen-jelly-bar.htmlToday I would like to take this opportunity to share with my readers the results after taking C-Jello Collagen Jelly Bar for 14 days. 


Before I proceed with the results, let me give you a short introduction of what is C-Jello Collagen Jelly Bar all about. 

C-Jello Collagen Jelly Bar is the FIRST ever collagen jelly bar exclusively created in Korea and it was produced to deliver the most effective absorption and with ease of use in mind. The jelly bar supports the restoration of the skin by promoting the appearance of youthful, healthy and glowing skin in a safe and non-invasive way. 



Each box comes with 15 sachets and you can consume 2 sachets daily and one box will last you for a week. There is 30 mg of Vitamin C in each sachet. The Vitamin C in C-Jello is the co-factor and aids in the formation of collagen. 

C-Jello is safe to be eaten for pregnant lady as it contains more than 18 essential ingredients which benefits both mother and baby. Other than that, C-Jello is safe to eat because the sweetness is from natural ingredients which is lower than an apple.


With the continuous consumption of C-Jello, C-Jello helps to improve the following:
  • delaying the ageing process caused by external factors such as UV rays, harmful free radicals, stress and pollution
  • stimulates the skin renewal process for a younger and more youthful appearance 
  • reduction of fine lines and wrinkles 
  • lightening of dark spots for a brighter and fairer skin tone 
  • improvement of the overall healthy and suppleness of the skin
  • restructuring of the skin's collagen and its ability to retain skin's firmness, elasticity and smoothness 

After consumed the C-Jello Collagen Jelly Bar for 14 days, I noticed the difference on my skin. My skin becomes fairer and more radiant than before. Other than that, I noticed the firmness of my skin has significantly improved especially on both of the cheeks area. The best part is that the dark eye circles are slightly reduced too. Yay!


If you asked me if I am going to purchase more, I will definitely say YES because it did help to lighten up my pigmentation and brighten up my skin. In addition, with this jelly bar, it becomes so convenient that I will just have to tear the sachet and pop the jelly bar into my mouth wherever I go be it travelling or anywhere.

[Tips] Secrets to Beautiful and Healthy Skin ❤

Hello readers! Today's topic would be slightly different from the normal beauty post and today I would like to take this opportunity to share some tips and secrets. I know some of the girls have their own tips or secrets to beautiful skin and today I would like to share mine with my readers.

When I was young, I used to have a lot of breakouts and skin tone is super dull and uneven. I lack of confidence over that period of time due to pimples popping up everywhere on my face. Over the years, I have tried several methods to achieve the healthy and pimple-free skin and finally I made it with the help of these few tips.


CHANGE OF DIET 

More vegetables and fruits in your meal plan.
Other than that, CHANGE of your DIET plan is important too. Some food might cause your blood sugar to rise quickly, triggering a boost in insulin. This is because too much insulin in your bloodstream can trigger changes in your body that can lead to the growth of pore-clogging cells. It can also boost action in your oil glands. Try to eat more vegetables, fruits, whole grains and beans if you want to have lesser breakouts on your skin.


HAVE A GOOD QUALITY SLEEP

Stress increases glucocorticoid production which can lead to abnormalities in skin structure and function and that can make conditions like acne worse. Therefore it is important to get more sleep at least 7 hours a day. It will be better for you to sleep before 12 am rather than you sleep at 3 am and wake up at 10 am because sleep quality is best when it occurs within the body's natural circadian rhythm.

So if a person truly can't fall asleep before midnight but has to routinely wake up early, it's likely that sooner or later they are going to feel seriously sleep deprived. This where breakouts happen. Nowadays I try to sleep before 12 and wake up at 7 or 7.30 am in the morning everyday including weekends. I noticed that skin undeniably feels healthier and pimples are getting lesser. (:


PROPER SKINCARE REGIME

Besides that, you need to have proper skincare regime in order to have beautiful and healthy skin. First of all, one should never ever skip the basic skincare regime even though you are feeling lazy. Cleanse, Tone and Moisturise are the 3 basic steps that we should never skip. In fact the guys should have these basic steps in their skincare regime. Some of them tend to cleanse their face and do not proceed with the toner and moisturiser which is not good for their skin. Since I am a beauty blogger, I am super concerned about skincare regime and I would never ever skip these steps even though I am lazy.

Let me explain the benefits / advantages of having these 3 steps in your skincare regime. First of all, Cleansing is the first line of defense against pimples. It is important to keep skin clean and thoroughly remove dirt, excess make-up and oil that can clog pores and cause skin problems. If skin is oily or sometimes gets pimples, it is best to choose a cleanser specifically designed for acne-prone skin. However, washing alone is not enough to remove the dirt and excess make-up.

Photo credits to Google.
The face has more oil-producing glands than any other part of the body. Top that with a day's worth of makeup, sweat, dust and dirt and you are left with a pore-clogging concoction that, if not washed away regularly, will seep into and fill pores, resulting in blackheads and pimples. Therefore, try not to over cleansing your face as it cause breakout. Basically it strips out all the moisture on your skin causing your skin to be more dry than usual.

Face turns oily very fast especially on the T-zone area.
On top of that, you do not have to purchase expensive skincare set as affordable skincare set has the 3-basic products that you need. I would suggest to you to try out Clean & Clear® Essentials as this skincare set has been proven to control oil and shine on your face with only 3 steps!

Clean & Clear® Essentials 
I always heard about this brand when I was in my teenage years and I have been using some of the range which was offered by Clean & Clear® back in those days. This Clean & Clear® Essentials can help to prevent common skin problems such as blackheads, pimples and oily shine.

Clean & Clear® Essentials Foaming Facial Wash
Clean & Clear® Essential Foaming Facial Wash with oil-free formula thoroughly cleanses to remove excess oil and dirt without over drying. It also contains anti-bacterial ingredients to help prevent pimples and blackheads leaving skin clear and shine-free. 



My skin tends to get oily especially after work even though I am in the air-conditioned environment the whole day. I tried this Clean & Clear® Essentials Foaming Facial Wash for a week or two and I find that my skin is less oily and no longer shiny especially on the nose area.

Clean & Clear® Essentials Oil-Control Toner
Toners play a multi-function role in young skin care and it's very effective for oily and pimple-prone skin types. It removed any dirt, oil and residue that cleansing leaves behind so that skin is completely free and clean from anything that can clog up the pores. 

Moisten the cotton pad with toner and lightly sweep across the face for a fresher look.
Toner also conditions the skin, reducing the appearance of dry or flaky patches and evens out the skin appearance. Toners also designed for young skin, often contain effective ingredients like salicylic acid which work as a first treatment step to actively prevent pimples and keep pores clear. Clean & Clear® Essentials Oil-Control Toner naturally balanced refreshed skin and works deep in pores to control oil.

Clean & Clear® Essentials Moisturiser
Clean & Clear® Essentials Moisturiser is the last step for your skincare regime. Basically this moisturiser is used to help you nourish the skin whilst helping to treat acne skin.


This milky-white moisturiser moisturizes the skin without greasiness for oily, blackhead-prone and pimple-prone skin. You will feel a softer and smoother skin with this 3-step skincare from Clean & Clear® Essentials. The texture is not too oily and it leaves my skin supple and soft till the next day.  


Anyway, washing your face too often or too vigorously can irritate the skin and remove skin's natural moisture barrier, leaving feeling dry and tight. When this happens, skin automatically produces more oil which can lead to new pimples. Keeping your skin clean and balanced is the best way to prevent pimples, blackheads and oily shine.

To do this, it is recommended to cleanse skin twice a day. For best results, follow cleansing with toner and moisturiser designed to help to prevent pimples. The combined benefits from using a regimen of cleanser, toner and moisturiser is very effective to keep skin in top condition and avoid common skin problems.

Say hello to soft, supply and oil-free skin! 
Clean and Clear® understands how your skin can affect your outlook on life when you look your best you have the confidence to be yourself and enjoy new experiences.  They have designed a complete range of products for young skin that are oil-free, so that they will not clog pores and cause skin problems - giving you clean, beautiful skin that's naturally fair and problem-fair.



GET SOME EXERCISE

Next tips is to get some EXERCISE other than having the right skincare regime. Exercise helps to cut stress which may contribute to breakouts. Physical activity helps your skin by increasing blood circulation which sends more oxygen to your skin cells and carries cell waste away. However bear in mind to shower right after a workout as sweat from exercise can also lead to breakouts by irritating your skin.

Sweating after exercise helps to reduce stress.
You will definitely feel great after workout and you will feel like as if your skin is breathing properly after workout. In fact sweating after exercise is good because toxins from the waste can be transferred through sweats which will make your skin breathes healthily.




DRINK A LOT OF WATER

There's another important tip that I would like to share with my readers is that REMEMBER TO DRINK A LOT OF WATER! I can't never skip a day without drinking water because water can help to flush out internal organs and hydrate your skin from the inside out. Drink at least 2 - 3 litres a day (depending on individuals) to avoid your skin from drying out.

Anyway, on top of all the secrets and tips to beautiful and healthy skin, I would like to announce that Clean & Clear® is having an Instagram contest from now till 30th August 2015.
