Review | Althea X Get It Beauty Real Fresh Skin Detoxer in Green Tea and Rose

Thursday, 23 August 2018



When I got these two products from Althea as part of their Althea Angels Welcome Kit, I opened them right away as I was very excited to try them because of two things; Green Tea and Rose are both my favourites when it comes to ingredients for my special care products like sheet masks and wash-off masks. The second reason would be this is the first time I'm trying this kind of product! I've tried oil-to-foam cleanser before and that's surprisingly very convenient although I just can't change my double cleansing method but mask-to-cleanser can be a game changer in my skincare routines.

But first, let's go into details of these new products from Althea!

Now, let's talk about the packaging!




The products came within these boxes. The design is minimalistic with merely wordings for the products' names and the main ingredients' illustrations on the side. If you've noticed, there's the Get It Beauty logo at lower part of the box I'm guessing to indicate that these two products are indeed collaboration between the brand and the beauty TV show.

If you're still confused on what category these product fall on, they're actually wash-off masks, recommended to be used for 10 seconds after first oil-based cleanser (for double cleansing method) on daily basis.




At the back of the boxes are the product descriptions in Korean but rest assured, you can get all the information you need here. Unless of course, if you can read and understand Hangeul  that is. (>.<)




On the side of the box there's a note regarding the natural real rose and green tea leaves contained in the products so don't freak out if it's starting to change in its colour although I haven't seen it yet either. 



The products came in almost transparent tubes which is again, something I'd appreciate as I'm tired of putting those products in tubes that I have in my stash behind the light just to really see how much of product left inside. I also am digging the part where they've provided a space at the back of the tube for me to properly write the opened date for these products.




Like most Korean products, these tubes products have seal stickers at the opening. Oh, you can check the expiration dates at the top of the tube. Such a great movement in Korean skincare manufacturing industries I'd say as it's really nice to know when the products are going to expire instead of counting the months and the years from the manufacturing dates printed on products back in 2015. The format is YYYYMMDD.

Now, let's go to each of the product.


ALTHEA REAL FRESH SKIN DETOXER ROSE


I was catching up with previous episodes of Get It Beauty on iFlix few weeks ago; there's one episode where the participants of the show known as Better Girls were comprising of foreigners that currently residing in Seoul being invited to the show. I recalled there's part of the program where the hosts revealed some beauty products that they discovered during their overseas trips; host Lee Honey brought her self-made perfume while she was visiting Grasse, France and guess where one of these two's main ingredient sourced from? Grasse, France; the world's capital of perfume, indeed.





The consistency for both of these products is similar; thick gel, run slightly and this being the Rose variant is containing rose petals in it. The scent is of course filled with rose scents but it does smell like chemical although slightly.




When it comes to application, I've noticed that Althea recommends for Rose to be used in the morning to refine the skin texture and promote smooth skin texture. I have to agree that this mask-to-foam product does give me that especially when I have flaky skin around my jawline area thanks to multiple allergic reactions I've been having for the past month or so (no worries, I'm consuming lots of veggies these days) and as I've been using this product every other day for more than 3 weeks with use no physical scrubs in my routines as I'm afraid it might be too harsh for my skin' the same goes to my Clarisonic brush, I've seen improvement as the area is very much smooth.



ALTHEA REAL FRESH SKIN DETOXER GREEN TEA





The Green Tea variant is an absolute delight for my skin as it cleanses deeply; I see no dead skin cells whenever I tone my skin after using it in my evening routine. The scent is so nice and therapeutic within the short seconds while applying this on. 



Although I have to let you guys know that around the second week of using this, I applied this on for a little bit longer than I should and with my jawline being sensitive and all at that point, the whole area went overly dried and worst than allergic reaction aftereffect, I cried. I guess the formula is indeed intense hence only 10 seconds recommended for it to work well on your skin so I'd suggest for you to follow the instructions well before using.


Overall, I would say that these two products work well and if you're like me who are busy and got not much time to do physical scrubs, do wash-off masks like 3 times a week; the whole nine, I'd definitely recommend these products maybe for daily use, or every other day you can build up the frequency according to your skin concerns. 


You can purchase these separately with individual price of RM43 or in a set with 10% discount (no code necessary) with both variants. If you're new to Althea and planning to purchase more than RM150, use my link (click here!) for 20% discount! 

So I guess that's all from me! If you have already got these products, do let me know what your thoughts on them by leaving comments down below.



Until next post, annyeong~

Beauty Talks | Kick Off of My Round 13.0 Skincare Products

Tuesday, 21 August 2018




August marks the final month for my Round 12 of skincare products and as you can see from the above #shelfie,  I've got a cleanser from Round 11 (which ended in February) and this round's cleansing foams, waters and balms with new additions from Blogger Mails last month. 

For Round 12.0, I've managed to finish a toner, 2 bottles of first serums, 2 bottles of essences, and 3 tubs of sleeping masks along with almost 100 sheet masks. I'd definitely be posting an Empties post soon so do stay tuned for that, okay!

For this upcoming Round 13.0 which starting next month, I'll be introducing some new oil-based cleansers, water-based-cleansers, moisturisers, tone-up creams, lots of sunscreens, and the most that I've anticipated for 2018; new exfoliating and hydrating toners (you need both if you want to start incorporating acids in your skincare routine) which will be part of my 7-Skin Methods. I haven't decided whether it'll be seven different toners or maximum 4 toners, let's just wait and see for now. 

As for body care, I literally haven't shopped for anything for the past 3 months or so as I've bought so much back in May to June as there was the Harvest Festival Sale literally in every mall at that time so I'm going to shop my stash till I ran out of everything. 

So I guess that's a quick update on my current skincare stash! Do you use the same skincare products all year round or are you like me who change certain number of products on a 6-month cycle? Do let me know by leaving comments down below.

Until next post, annyeong~


P.S.: How are you liking my new blog header?

Blogger Mail | Althea Angels Beauty Ambassador Welcome Kit

Saturday, 28 July 2018





Blogging and engaging on social media can be interesting and fulfilling especially for those people who are like me; having small circle of friends in real life (which I appreciate and love) and maintaining (read: struggling) a well-balanced life between work and family. Most of my friends and colleagues have no interest in skincare or makeup so I opened a second Instagram account just for my passion towards K-Beauty as I don't want to appear bit more obvious than I am on regular days where I reapply my sunscreens before lunch and use sheet mask while sipping on iced tea in the break room when I'm too lazy to go out during early evening.


Up until 2016, I was all about writing reviews on my blog and posted on Instagram like once or twice a month. You probably noticed that there aren't lots of comments here in my blog and I haven't got much of engagement here because I just changed my domain back in March hence previous comments are all gone but actually, people like to engage more on social media these days, I think?  Anyway, while I was trying to figure out my next step for this blog, I was invited to be part of Malaysian-based Beauty Community around early 2017 and we went by #myabcommunity on Instagram. I was all aboard with the idea of engaging with other Malaysian-based beauty enthusiasts as I’ve got the opportunity to meet new friends on social media (not just Instagram) and as it turned out, we’ve become friends in real life as well so at that point, I’ve realised that things will be much more interesting from that moment on. 


Now, to be part of Althea’s Beauty Ambassador Community is something I’m grateful for as I get to enjoy lots of perks like getting more products to try and review, discount codes for my followers and readers, better opportunities in terms of brand awareness, attending events; all in the hope to grow of becoming an influencer. Before we go into details of items included in the Welcome Kit that arrived last week, can we take some time to appreciate the cuteness of this special Althea Box?




The size of this Althea Box is the same as their regular Medium Box and comes with that ANGEL logo at top right corner with Althea Angels wording at the lower half of the box continuing onto the front lid area. The box is in that cute pastel pink and I like it very much as the design is unique among its sisters.



ALTHEA ANGEL BEAUTY AMBASSADOR WELCOME KIT




So what's included in the kit?
  • Welcome Message from the Head of Social Media of Althea
  • Althea Angels official merchandise; the “Spread Your Wings” beauty hand mirror and makeup bag
  • Althea Turns 3 Canvas Tote Bag along with the Birthday Book miniatures
  • Althea X Get It Beauty Real Fresh Skin Detoxer in Green Tea and Rose



Overall, I’m loving this kit! It’s so cute and befit the whole concept of this Beauty Ambassador Community Program. I also have started on using the two products from Althea’s latest collaboration with that top beauty program in South Korea so do stay tuned for my upcoming reviews on them. ​



Before I forgot, here's a discount code for you on your next purchase! Valid till September 30, 2018!


I guess that's all from me! I'll see you guys on my next post! Annyeong~

Beauty Empties | June

Thursday, 28 June 2018



Here's another Empties post! Yay! It's such a relief  every time I've emptied my Empty bins as I go through each and every product that I've finished so I can put my final thoughts and decide whether to repurchase or not. I have huge amount of stash for my products and I'll be posting more on them soon as I've previously done under Skincare Routine, Makeup Stash and Body Care Routines. But for now, let's get into this!





This time around, I've finished 3 bottles of first treatment products and the first one would be Innisfree Green Tea Seed Serum. It's a great hydrating serum that I usually applied on my morning skincare routine as it's light yet ample for my skin. the second one that ran out was that THE FACE SHOP The Therapy First Serum although in its original packaging but I've decided to refill it instead with the Limited Edition release in conjunction with last Holiday i.e. Christmas early this year that comes in 200ml size and as for the balance, I've transferred it into my mum's bottle. The reason would be because I'm not fond with that plastic packaging at all.

I've also finished another bottle of LANEIGE Clear C Advanced Effector and I can't deny the fact that I'm still loving the product hence I've already repurchased the third upgraded version. I also had finished another bottle of Son&Park Beauty Water; a great exfoliating toner that deserve to be repurchased. I've gotten this along with its Beauty Gel sister from Althea last year and I've gotten another bottle from Sasa in a box set recently.

I'm happy to finish yet another tub of LANEIGE Water Sleep Mask that I love and of course I just had to repurchase it! I've got the deluxe sample for the Lavender version so I'm excited to try it! As for that facial mist from Innisfree; Jeju Sparkling Mineral Mist, I do have 2 more backups of it so I won't be repurchasing anytime soon.





I'll be honest as when it comes to these Innisfree Olive Real Cleansing Oil and Foam, I didn't actually used them a lot on my face as I rather used them to wash my cushion foundation air puffs (double cleanses as well!) as these two broke me out previously. Nope, I'm sticking to other Innisfree cleansers and won't be repurchasing these again.





I've also finished these two sunscreens Innisfree Daily UV Protection Cream in Mild and No Sebum around the same time and as I've already purchased the new hydrating and anti-pollution sunscreens also from the brand, I won't be repurchasing these anytime soon. But these are actually great if you're looking for simple sunscreens, I'd definitely recommend them.





Lastly, some body care products. I've finished my first tube of  that EUBOS Sensitive Hand Repair and Care and I've already repurchased another tube for it. It's making my dry hands feeling nice and velvety so yes, that deserves another round. I've also finished another bottle of that THE FACE SHOP Soul Secret Blossom Perfume in that Limited Edition Kakao Friends packaging along with its sister Kakao Friends Hand Cream Neo in Berry. I already repurchased the perfume in Holiday packaging early this year as it's a nice scent for everyday wear in the office.



I guess that's all from me! I hope you enjoy reading this post. Do let me know your thoughts on any of these and I'll see you guys on a next one. Annyeong~



MBD Style | Everyday Women’s Fashion Essentials

Thursday, 21 June 2018

You simply can’t get around it, there are some items you must have in your wardrobe that you can throw on at any time. The right pair of jeans, tees, flats, heels, pumps and the right accessories that can really set you apart when you are in a crowd. These are some fashion essentials every woman should own.


Clutch purse. Charles & Keith

It is light, it is small and it can accessorise any outfit. A pixie dress or sundress, a pair of skinny jeans, a formal blazer/coat you’re wearing to work, all go perfectly with that clutch. If you’re just going out on the town it won’t weigh you down like those other huge purses you have in the closet. If you would like to purchase some fashion essentials then I would recommend visiting a credit clothing catalogue.



Skinny jeans and white top. D S L T D

Skinny jeans go well with anything, in fact for most women it is the ‘go-to’ outfit when you are in a rush. It looks good, you dress well in them and you feel comfortable. The right ‘white’ tee/tank/blouse, is also a must-have item. You can dress it up with a colourful jacket, keep it simple with flats or accessorise as you deem fit with other colours/patterns, based on the occasion. With this pairing, it is truly up to you how fancy or formal you are going to keep it.



Earrings and necklaces. Hijabiworld.

It doesn’t have to be flashy or stand out. It’s very handy to have a pair of earrings you can throw on with any outfit, and a necklace that accentuates your outfits. Sometimes, it is all that’s needed to really set you apart from someone wearing a similar outfit.

Every woman knows the right essentials go a long way in helping you stand out in a crowd and truly looking your best no matter where you are going or what you are doing. These are a few essential items for every closet no matter what time of year. You can put them on and feel confident.

I guess that's all for #myrabeautydiarystyle this week, I'll see you guys on my next post!

Blogger Mail | The Hiro House Matcha Face Mask

Saturday, 2 June 2018

Around early last month, I’ve started looking for some locally produced face masks and I’ve encountered @thehirohouse (such a coincidence that we have major love for concrete deco pieces!) and after exchanging DMs via Instagram, they sent me this mask just to try and although they didn't request me to review the product, I've decided to do it anyway so let's get into this! 




Description:

The key ingredients:

  • French Green Clay: has the ability to absorb oil and bacteria from your skin and pores. It’s beneficial in removing impurities and tightening the pores, toning the skin, exfoliating dead skin cells and reducing inflammation in acne. 
  • Green Tea: Powerful antioxidants provide powerful skin detox, stimulates and rejuvenates skin cells. 
  • Aloe Vera powder: Ability to soothe, hydrate and nourish the skin tissue.

Packaging:




The face mask comes in a simple glass jar with a white lid and packaged within a brown box with product label on it.  I actually kind of digging this kind of minimalist style although I do wish that the box is sturdier however they shipped the product with layers of bubble wraps so I was relieved that it actually survived 1000 miles trip from one end of Malaysia to my place.





There's a full English product description at one side of the box; explaining the product star ingredients and their suggestions of product usage. Although the mask comes in powdered form, it's still to be used up within 12 months as indicated on the box.


Impression:





I honestly don’t think I ever tried a powdered mask up to this mask so it is indeed a first for me. I gotta say that the first few times were a struggle to get the right amount of powder and water ; it can me too thick I felt like I wasting product or too thin as the mask kept on running down on my face to my shirt but after I’ve gotten that measuring spoons from Daiso, I’m good. The ratio for me is 1 (spoonful of product) : 1 (spoonful of water)  which is just perfect.






I was mixing this in a small bowl on the kitchen counter when mum walked in.

Mom: Is that drinkable? I think I've seen those matcha powder in Starbucks before.
Me: Sure, mom. 

Mum wanted to take some into a cup and then I freaked out as she didn't get my sarcasm. So, yes. Please don't leave this around unattended. :D Now, let's get to the next part of this review!


Application:



I applied the mask using facial brush (not in picture) on my whole facial area (avoiding eye area) and slightly on the neck area. There’s a faint scent of green tea which is fine and I do feel the tightening sensation when the mask started to dry out and then I'll rinse it off after 20 to 30 minutes; depending on how early I got in the morning.




I just love how smooth and soft my skin becomes after every usage, I don’t feel this drying out at all but of course, I’d be misting my whole face with facial mist that I have in my bathroom to prevent that as I'm not taking any chance! I’ve noticed that whenever I use this mask in the morning, my T-zone area becomes non-oily and I didn't have to reapply finishing powder or to blot even if I were to merely use tone-up sunscreen for the day.

Final verdict:

I haven’t been into wash-off masks for so long (other than my Skinfood wash-off masks which are staple) but after seeing @lezelasrie doing wash-off masks so religiously (thanks, babe! for all the awesome tips!!) almost everyday makes me want to get some for myself.

Overall, 5/5. To my fellow Malaysian beauty enthusiasts, this mask is simple and great so do check them out! I’m not gonna stress on the less fancy packaging that some of you might not be fan of as I no longer a sucker for packaging for the past year or so. I've also been clearing out lots of boxes and packaging of products that I've kept for so-called aesthetics then I've realised they're all trash that I need to get rid of.

I’ve actually liked this face mask so much on the first try enough for me to get the rest of its sisters from Picksum.com the very next day plus I think they were having promotions on these so I guessed, why not?




I’m loving the part when I get to use different mask at different facial area with different concern; my fave combination so far is Matcha and Calm so do let me know if you want me to show you guys on Instagram Stories.


I guess that's all from me! I hope you guys enjoyed this post and please let me know your thoughts by leaving comments down below. Until next post!

Skincare Routine | Exfoliating Toner, First Serums and Skincare Booster

Sunday, 20 May 2018




If you're a beginner in using Korean skincare products, you would probably noticed there are certain products that you're supposed to use in between your cleansing products and your regular (hydrating, brightening, or moisturising) toners and these are called either exfoliating toner, skincare boosters (usually filled with sorts of vitamins) and the most familiar I'd think, first essences (lightweight) or serums (slightly heavy) that exist within the same skincare lines or you can get it on its own. 



First is Son&Park Beauty Water. I’m on my 3rd bottle (already repurchased my 4th bottle recently) of this exfoliating toner and I just can’t get onto another similar product yet. I've mentioned this previously that I always use this before any sheet mask session as it smooths out dead skin cells and make way for the essence or serums even ampoules to be well absorbed into skin better as I've compared to few times I didn't use it. I freaking love this toner and I've crowned this with   HG status since 2016.



Secondly, a skincare booster that's filled with Vitamin C; Holika Holika 3 Seconds Starter Vita Complex. At this point, I’ve just opened this recently for its brightening purposes and I'm loving its light texture. Will use more before giving my thoughts on it.



Thirdly, these two first serums that I lovingly use for my morning and night routines separately. If you saw my Instagram Stories around last month, you’d noticed that I actually finished my first bottle of THE FACE SHOP The Therapy First Serum and opened the Holiday Limited Edition of it but then I'm not fond of the plastic feel for the packaging hence I refilled that bottle fully at 130ml and filled the 50ml balance into my mum’s bottle. Indeed, we both are loving this first serum so much!



As for that Innisfree The Green Tea Seed Serum, there’s like little amount of the serum left in the bottle (took this pic last month) and I’m planning to get a backup for this hydrating first serum on my next trip to KL end of this month. That's how you know how I really love using certain products in my skincare stash. I know I've said previously I should stopped buying backups but I assured you that it only applies to facial cleansers at this point. 



I guess that's all from me! Let me know if you're using any of these in your current skincare routine by leaving comments down below. I'll see you guys on my next post! Annyeong~




Skincare Routine | AHA, BHA, PHA!

Wednesday, 16 May 2018



I honestly do think that I should've included the COSRX One-Step Pimple Clear Pad in this post rather the previous one as it's basically a toner containing betaine salicylate and willow bark water to chemically exfoliate without drying the skin. I guess, I should be doing that in my next post probably in September where I'll be talking about my next Round 13.0 of skincare but for now, let's go into these acids that I've been incorporating in my evening routine for the past few weeks.


First, those two products from COSRX; the AHA/BHA Clarifying Treatment Toner and BHA Blackhead Power Liquid. I have these two for quite sometime but honestly I’ve only been using them few times as I keep on reaching for other toners (whether it's brightening or hydrating toners)  as I want to speed up my routine especially in the morning when I don’t have the luxury to wait for 15 minutes for these to work and then proceed with the rest of my skincare routine. I will put in more efforts to use them in my evening routine probably in another two weeks after my skin is less sensitive and I'd probably be doing special treatment  by using cleansing oil followed by BHA and a clay mask. Let’s see if it works.


New addition to my acids squad is that SNP Lab+ Triple Water Peel Soothing Pads. I’ve only been using this for several times in the evening but I already am loving it! This contains AHA, BHA and PHA which are kind for my sensitive, dry cheeks area with oily T-zone. Let me use it several times more before coming up with a proper review.



So that's all of it! Let me know what kind of facial exfoliators that you're using in your skincare routine by leaving comments down below. Until next post, annyeong~



Skincare Routine | Facial Exfoliators

Sunday, 13 May 2018






I cannot stress enough of how important to exfoliate your skin properly so your skincare products got absorbed properly into the layers of your skin. Today I'll be sharing about the various types of products I've shown you above so you can find at least one that best suit your skin.

First would be these classics; Skinfood Strawberry Black Sugar Wash-Off Mask and Skinfood Honey Black Sugar Wash-Off Mask (Snoopy limited edition). I have these from the previous round of skincare and I'm down to the last quarter of these tubs. of course, I'm still using these wash-off masks as scrubs although I've dialed down the usage to twice a month my skin is still a bit sensitive due to few weeks ago's allergic reactions. These are great, I do find these two are hydrating enough and will continue on using it. 


Second would be the COSRX One-Step Pimple Clear Pad. I’m getting back to this acid toner pad as I’m getting breakouts and the flaky skin areas are getting bigger so this helps a lot in preventing it from spreading along my jawline area and smoothing the areas. I've also noticed that my pores appearances are being reduced hence cleaner, I guess? Overall, this is great and I'm dying to try the Moisture version next.


Thirdly, the two peeling gels; DR. FROG Control-Tox Peeling Gel and Dr. G Brightening Peeling Gel. I’ve introduced these peeling gels into my routine quite recently. If you’re not familiar with these, they’re definitely not going to peel off your skin 😂 as the gel gently exfoliates the dead skin cells on the surface as I massage my cleansed skin with it. These are perfect in between my scrubs days and I've noticed my skin becomes smoother after using. 


So that's all of it! Let me know what kind of facial exfoliators that you're using in your skincare routine by leaving comments down below. Until next post, annyeong~



Skincare Routine | Cleansing Tools

Wednesday, 9 May 2018





One of the biggest beauty-related purchase for the first half of 2018 is this Clarisonic Smart Profile Face and Body Brush. I actually haven’t been using this a lot as my skin is kinda sensitive for the past few weeks due to food poisoning so I’m currently focusing on sensitive skincare products. However, those several times that I was using this were amazing as my skin feels soft and products were quickly absorbed compared to the times I was just using my hands or traditional facial brush. I have to admit I do miss using this and I can’t wait to get to use it again, maybe in a couple more weeks? I'd sure hope!


Whenever I use cleansing oils, I usually emulsify it using a damped facial sponge and wipe off the residue with it. I would save so much time and water compared to just rinsing it off. I've gotten that from THE FACE SHOP but any facial sponge will do I think. I'd suggest to get any from drugstores.


Lastly, a bubble maker that I got from Daiso. I love bubble foams like Bifesta Foaming Whip but I won't be hurrying to finish that so I take small amount of my other deep cleanser, putting it inside the container, mix with a little water and pump until soft foam bubbles are formed. Love it!


I guess that's all from me! Do let me know your favourite facial cleansing tools by leaving comments down below. Until next time, annyeong~
