December Favourites 2019 | 3 New Beauty Products To Upgrade Your December

My December Favourites

1. Watch

Absolutely in love with the new Iconic Link collection by Daniel Wellington, it's so gorgeous,
it's elegant, it's sophisticated! Love the overall design, the simpler dials, minimal detailing,
not to mention the rose gold metal bracelet that immediately elevates your look!

2. Mask

Besides sheet masks, I also use cleansing mud mask to deep cleanse and remove dead skin cells.
 Formulated with one of the most well-known soothing ingredient, CICA Centella Asiatica, this
 Cica Capsule Mask from VT Cosmetics x BTS line helps to quickly soothe and repair skin,
also giving the skin a deep cleanse, without irritating or over-drying it. Applying a full face,
you will have that typical Shreck's green look which is really healing and interesting to see!
Also, not forgetting the pudding packaging which is very convenient to bring anywhere!  

 3. Sunscreen

First time trying Sun Stick and I particularly love this Natural Perfection Fresh Sun Stick
from AHC. Quick and easy application, it glides on smoothly on the skin, leaves no white cast.
I like its lightweight texture with a refreshing finish and most importantly, it doesn't make my
skin looks greasy. It's also very convenient to use which is great when you're on the go!

ESUI Feminine Hygiene Wash Daily Solution Review | Daily Intimate Care

Do you know that taking care of your intimate part is equally important to taking care
of your face and body? Choosing the right feminine wash for your daily use is crucial
to keep your vagina healthy and prevention of feminine problems. Ordinary soaps,
especially those with added fragrances, are not necessarily kind to your intimate regions.

Lately, I came across with this intimate care brand, ESUI
and I got to try out their Feminine Hygiene Wash Daily Solution.

ESUI Feminine Hygiene Wash, a halal-certified feminine hygiene cleanser using latest
Nano Technology from France, suitable for daily frequent use. It is made of natural
ingredients from herbs and manufactured at pH 4 which is the ideal pH for vaginal
acidity according to the Research of School of Medicines of Chelsea University, UK.
This is because ordinary soap, which is alkali may upset the natural vagina pH,
leading to imbalance of vaginal flora, causing abnormal vaginal discharge and infection.

It comes in a sleek silver packaging with a flip cap.

Available in two bottle sizes: 60ml and 150ml

Mildly scented, brownish-red in colour, maybe it's because of the natural herbal extracts inside.

Formulated with three main natural ingredients: 
Quercus Infectoria, Labisia Pumila, Piper Betle Leaf Extracts

Quercus Infectoria (Manjakani Extracts) 
Natural antiseptics, helps to tone up vaginal epithelial with its unique astringent properties.

Labisia Pumila (Kacip Fatimah Extracts)
Rich in Estrogen, widely used in post-partum recovery and tones up vaginal walls.

Piper Betel Leaf Extracts
A renowned traditional medicine to treat various disorders, 
neutralizes free radicals due to overgrowth of vaginal bacteria.

This mild and gentle feminine hygiene wash helps to cleanse, freshen and combat
unpleasant odours and vaginal discharge. It also helps to tighten and tone vaginal area,
regulate feminine hormone, prevent external vaginal areas from itch and dryness.

Suitable for women of all ages, also for puberty age young teenager.
You may start using it after experiencing first menstruation till menopause.


Clean external vagina areas thoroughly with water and then 
pour out Esui Feminine Hygiene Wash about the size of 20 cent.
Apply gently on the areas, leave it around 60 seconds before rinsing it off.

You may use it daily, during menstruation periods, 
sexual intimacy and travel for instant freshness.

Currently using it as my daily feminine hygiene care and I love how gentle and mildly scented
this product is and the refreshing sensation as it leaves a cooling fresh feeling after wash. Most
importantly, it does not irritate the skin, it keeps me feeling fresh and comfortable all day long!

Available at Watsons and individual pharmacies.

Head over to their Official Website, Instagram and Facebook for more information!

November Favourites 2019 | 3 New Beauty Products To Upgrade Your November

My November Favourites

1. Highlight

Recently, I got to try out few new products from Cezanne, a Japan cosmetic brand and 
I love one of their new launch, Cezanne Pearl Glow Highlight #01 Champagne Beige 
which is one of the raved product in Japan! It gives a natural glow to complexion. 
Smooth and adheres firmly on skin just like it shines from the inside!

2. Lipstick

 Also, one of the new launch of Cezanne. This new shade of Cezanne Lasting Gloss Lip 
comes in a chic, classy gold container and a glass-like lipstick case with diamond cut on top. 
I like their #101 Brown that provides a tint texture which is more long-lasting with a smooth 
and creamy sensation. It has a little plumping effect with an oil-like shine, making it 
look healthy and moisturized which is also great for dry or chapped lips.

3. Body Care

Pamper my skin lately with a local Malaysian brand, Nurigins's natural goodness. I have been 
 using their Aloe Vera Hydrating Body Care Shower Cream for some time now and I like its 
 moisturizing texture. Their body care range also includes Argan Oil, Lavender and Rice Milk, all 
 infused with natural ingredients and essential oils to deeply cleanse while providing hydration and 
 nourishment to skin. Not to mention, they are thoughtful enough to have recyclable bottle packaging!

DR. WU Ageversal Anti-Aging Range Review | Dr. Wu Intensive Repairing Serum With Squalene & Ageversal Multi-Peptides Anti-Aging Ampoules

Experts agree that skin starts to age around 20 years old, and recommend that we
should all start the road to prevention early and start incorporating anti-aging
skincare products in our 20s and 30s, when our skin slowly starts to lose collagen.
Aging is inevitable, but you can help delay its outward signs with a great anti-aging serum.

Lately, I got to try out Dr. Wu's newly revamped anti-aging range, called the
Ageversal consisting of Dr. Wu's Intensive Repairing Serum with Squalene
and Dr. Wu's Ageversal Multi-Peptides Anti-Aging Ampoules.

 Dr. Wu's Intensive Repairing Serum with Squalene

Dr. Wu's Ageversal Multi-Peptides Anti-Aging Ampoules

A little intro about Dr. Wu, one of the leading medical skincare brand in Taiwan
that creates a technologically-advanced skincare line of high potency products for the
sensitive skin, aiming to bring about non-surgical solutions in enhancing one's beauty
and wellness, to enjoy skincare just like having a doctor perform medical treatments
at home, maintaining a perfect complexion through the simplest yet effective ways.

According to renowned dermatologist Ying-Chin Wu of National Taiwan University Hospital,
"Oil is the key to maintaining young skin." Thus, Dr. Wu has led a new trend of skincare,
using oil-based solutions to address common skin problems.

Dr. Wu's Intensive Repairing Serum with Squalene

Formulated with latest anti-aging technologies which can effectively restore skin barrier, fortify
 skin’s natural repair process and protect skin from environmental toxins. Its key ingredient,
 plant-derived Squalene helps to regenerate skin cells, retain moisture and refine signs of aging.

 This serum has a distinctive oily texture which can be quickly absorbed to the skin,
providing great moisturizing effect with no stickiness or greasiness which is surprising!

I like that it's light and applied so smoothly just like liquid silk, and absorbed nicely!
Apply small amount to face and neck using circular movements from the central
T-zone of the face towards the outer edges. You may use it daily, day and night.

It's also a multi-purpose essence oil where it can be used to mix with your moisturizer
for better skincare effect. You can also use it when applying makeup, just add one drop
to the liquid foundation for more long-lasting makeup. Other than that, you can also use
it to any dry and rough skin zone like peeling skin, finger edge to quickly restore softness.

Dr. Wu's Ageversal Multi-Peptides Anti-Aging Ampoules

Formulated with 10% high concentration of 10 types of multi peptides, a non-invasive skin firming,
  in-home ampoule which mimics aesthetic treatment for skin rejuvenation. It helps to reduce
 wrinkles, facial lines and improve skin firmness, revealing younger and firmer looking skin.

The texture of this ampoule is quite thin and quick absorbing with no sticky or greasy feel.

Just apply appropriate amount to face and neck after toner or essence and before serum.
It is recommended to finish immediately after open to achieve the best performance of
the product. If you cannot finish it at once, recommended to finish it in the same day.

Use daily for 7 days for optimal results.

I have been incorporating both of these serum and ampoule in my daily skincare routine and
I like how it enhances my skin texture, improving the dryness and roughness and makes
skin softer where I can actually feel the difference the next day. I love how it helps to firm
and refine skin and enhance skin radiance while providing enough moisture, creating softer
and smoother skin. Most importantly, it provides the support to keep premature aging at bay!

It's never too early to start using anti-aging skincare!

Now available at Sasa Malaysia!
