Event | Rejoice Launches New ‘Hijab Perfection Series’ As The Perfect Haircare Solution For Hijabistas This Ramadan

Friday, 3 May 2019
I've got a last minute invitation few days ago so I've managed to go out of KL city today by taking LRT from KLCC to USJ and headed to the event space at MYDIN Mall Subang Jaya. I've arrived at the event like 2 hours earlier. Who's excited? Now, let's go to what went down at the event earlier today, shall we?

The New Formula, designed to keep Hair Clean and Fresh from Sahur to Break of Fast, Lands at MYDIN and retail stores nationwide.

‘Hijab’ is a religious and symbolic identity of majority of the women in Malaysia and Hijabers face unique hair concerns beneath the veil every day. To address these concerns, P&G Rejoice scientists have interviewed hundreds of consumers and found that there is a considerable increase in temperature and humidity in the head region under the veil versus outside in their recent study. According to the study, three main hair and scalp concerns for Hijabistas today are dandruff, malodor and tangled hair.

Mr. Sahil Sethi, Beauty Commercial Director for P&G Malaysia sharing his thoughts about the brand and the motivation behind the creation of the Hijab Perfection Series.

To counter this issue, Rejoice proudly unveiled its new collection of Shampoo and Conditioner ‘Hijab Perfection Series’ that comes with a breakthrough 3-in-1 formula at a media event on May 3 where the science behind the new Rejoice formulas was shared along with interactive science demonstrations by Dr Rebecca Kan, P&G Asia Pacific Haircare Scientific Communications. The new product solves 1) Dandruff problem with extra clean anti-dandruff properties 2) Heat & Malodor with extra cooling from Menthol and refreshing smell of Kasturi flower 3) Tangled hair by ensuring extra smoothness that lasts all day and hence is the right haircare solution for Hijabistas.

“I have been the face of Rejoice brand in early stages of my career and was also popularly known as ‘Rejoice Gadis Bertudung Hijau’. I am extremely delighted to partner with Rejoice again to be part of the launch of the new Rejoice Hijab Perfection Series. I am thrilled with how this new product keeps my hair cool and fresh throughout the day. I am also in love with the youthful packaging design that completely symbolizes a modern day Hijabista like me. I would definitely recommend the new Rejoice to all my fellow Hijabistas in Malaysia this Ramadan” said Elfira Loy, Popular Malaysian Actress and Entrepreneur after she unveiled the new range.

Dr Rebecca Kan, Principal Scientist for P&G Asia Pacific Haircare sharing the breakthrough innovation with a live demonstration of how Rejoice Hijab Perfection Series works.

“Rejoice has always been a brand of firsts by launching First ever 2-in-1 shampoo, First ever Cosmetic Anti Dandruff shampoo and also the First ever Hot Oil shampoo. It has always defined the benchmark for superior smoothness and has been one of most loved haircare brands in Malaysia.

The shampoo variants are complemented by 3-in-1 Perfect Conditioner for smooth and conditioned hair with lightweight feel.

Rejoice ‘Hijab Perfection Series’ shampoo and conditioner are available in three different sizes with 170ml, 340ml and 600ml. This new range of products is available across MYDIN and all other major customers nationwide.

Event | Guardian X NAELOFAR Unveils Exclusive Tote Bags for Ramadhan

Thursday, 2 May 2019
Assalammualaikum and how are you my lovelies! It's been awhile since I last started my post with a greeting and I'm just so excited to share with you guys out there about an event that I've attended earlier today and boy, it was so much fun as you guys might've aware that this is indeed the first event ever for me; attending as a blogger representing Myra Beauty Diary! Woot! Woot!

I was supposed to leave on Tuesday after having a long weekend of attending my first party for beauty blogger community, hanging out with my friends, having local Asian Beauty Community meetups and of course, spending quality times with my best friend and then on Monday, came in the email from Guardian Malaysia through their PR company; an invite to their exclusive launch event for the lovely tote bags for Ramadan, a collaboration between the drugstore brand and a famous celebrity, Neelofa! Even though I'm not huge on local entertainment scene but as a hijab fashion enthusiast myself, I'm very much familiar with her brand, Naelofar; one of the biggest hijab brand here in Malaysia.

Now, let's go to what went down earlier today!

Guardian X NAELOFAR Exclusive Summer Collection tote bags.

Guardian Malaysia unveiled today Nature Beauty, Red Blossoms and Floral Serenity tote bags - it has commissioned for its Exclusive Summer Collection for Ramadan. These tote bags were designed and inspired by talented actress, TV presenter, model and successful entrepreneur; Miss Neelofa, the owner of one of Malaysia's leading contemporary fashion brand; NAELOFAR.

Speaking at the launch of the Summer Collection, Ms. Wong Vai Chi; Head of Marketing, Health and Beauty, Guardian Health and Beauty said, "This collaboration with NAELOFAR is our special way to welcome the Holy Month of Ramadan with our customers. We want to offer our customers something exclusive and of course, beautiful, when they drop in to shop for their health and beauty necessities at Guardian stores.

Vai Chi also announced that Guardian stores will have a special theme called "Seiring Ramadan" during the month of Ramadan where Guardian will strive to offer customers the best deals throughout this Ramadan season with discounts of up to 50% on some products.

Check the promotion here! Until end of this month!

"And for those who would like health tips during Ramadan, guardian will be uploading on its Facebook page, some useful advice from Joanna Soh, Asia's #1 Fitness YouTuber from time to time," she added.

Guardian X NAELOFAR Exclusive Summer Collection will be available from today until stocks last.

So in the month of Ramadan, what better time to shop at Guardian and to carry your purchases home in a must-have tote bag designed by Neelofa herself.

The tote bags can be purchased at a 40% discount with any purchase of a sponsor's product worth RM20, or RM30 of a non-sponsor's product. After the 40% discount, the bags will retail for only RM17.90.

From left: Red Blossoms, Nature Beauty, Flora Serenity

According to Neelofa, these are her inspirations behind the three tote bags:
  • Red Blossoms | A vibrant colour of Iris flowers designed with golden rectangle geometry to lead the eye from one design element to the next. Exclusively designed to look bold and elegant.
  • Nature Beauty | Designed to go beyond the norm towards modernization. The use of clean, irregular shapes with tropical colours emphasize on the beauty effect of the design.
  • Flora Serenity | Flowers and butterflies symbolise grace and beauty, with a touch of vibrant colours to give more festive-like feelings. Designed exclusively for those who embrace elegance.

The Guardian Exclusive Summer Collection will be available from today until stocks last. "So please start collecting these three tote bags early as stocks are very limited," said Vai Chi.

Shall I reveal what I've got in the goodie bag?

So that's the very first event I ever attended as blogger from Myra Beauty Diary and it was fun indeed. The launch was at one of the nice restaurant in Suria KLCC, I've got to meet lots of other big social media influencers and it was lovely to meet writers from magazines like NONA, Jelita, Remaja; local beauty and fashion magazines here in Malaysia. I feel so excited and inspired at the same time as I've always wanted to attend this kind of event so here's to more exciting events in 2019! One last pic with Neelofa! I admit, I was nervous hence the shaky selfie. LOL!

I guess that's all from me so I'll be seeing you guys on my next post! Take care!

Blogger Mail | Althea Skin Relief Calming Cream and Waterful Green Bamboo Pads

Saturday, 13 April 2019

Early this month, I've received another package from the Althea Land and this time they're launching products that are quite trendy these days; anti-pollution moisturiser that suits everyone even sensitive skin and soothing toner pads that's just filled with hydration and I'm obsessed with the gauze-type pad!

I've been incorporating both of these products in my daily morning and evening skincare routines and I just love how versatile and easy to apply they actually are like the rest of Althea Exclusives; skincare products released under un-house brand, Althea. Here's my first impression:-

I've been using the Waterful Green Bamboo Pads as the first step after my cleansing routine for the past couple weeks. I haven't had any soothing toner in my skincare stash because I usually go for hydrating and brightening toners instead; not until my skin started to dry out around my outer cheeks and chin area (entering my 30s sucks big time) and that's when I've started to look for gentle and soothing toner for my sensitive facial area. Then, bam! Althea dropped the toner pad; not only it soothes and hydrates my skin, it also helps in removing dead skin cells rather gently thanks to the gauze-type pads and the willow bark extracts as well. 

I've been noticing that my skin doesn't react well with heavy makeup lately; lots of redness around my cheek area and of course, there's still some areas around my outer cheeks that's just flaky and sad! I usually treat these areas with soothing, Panthenol-containing sheet masks but lately I feel that's still a bit lacking in terms of result unlike before. I've been using the Skin Relief Calming Cream mostly in my night skincare routine for the past couple weeks; coupling  it with other moisturisers where I'd be applying the soothing cream on affected area with other moisturisers focusing on hydration (Hyaluronic Acid-containing) that are mostly light in texture on the rest of my facial area. Man, I'm fully aware that combination skin is tricky but it gets trickier with sensitive area.

So far, both products are appearing regularly on my #myraskincarediary on Instagram which means I've been using them a lot especially the soothing pad toners! I even take some of it and place them into a small case for me to carry in my office skincare kit for my midday routine because it's just so hot in Malaysia these days and even layering hydrating toners won't do. 

I guess that's all for now! Do stay tuned for full reviews for both of these products upcoming soon in here in my blog. Have you tried any of Althea Exclusive? Tell me about it! By the way, if you're planning to sign up for Althea and place your first order for more than RM150, use my link (click here!) for 20% discount off your first purchase!

2019 Spring Launches | Shu Uemura Unlimited Fluid Foundation

Monday, 18 March 2019

Shu Uemura Unlimited Fluid Foundation is a new liquid foundation with SPF24 and it comes in 24 shades. The foundation focuses on three things: shade range, lightweight texture and long wearing.

The formula is light and smooth, giving an even color to your complexion while feeling completely lightweight. All the shades have been selected to suit Asian women of all skin tones. This selection of shades is based on through the research of over 3000 women from all over Asia.

On SEPHORA Malaysia website, there are currently 12 shades available and I'm hoping for them to make full range available soon as I don't see my shade range in there, at least not yet.

I've made some inquiry at Imago Kota Kinabalu Boutique and the BA has informed that the shades available are only half of the full range too! I'm not sure which ones so I'll be heading down there to check it out myself. Also, I'd be picking up the new Blanc:Chroma Lightening and Polishing Cleansing Oil sample kit to see if it's better than my regular Anti/Oxi+ Skin Pollutant & Dullness Clarifying Cleansing Oil.

Have you tried anything from Shu Uemura? Let me know!

Lifestyle | 4 Things to Do If You're Unhappy with Your Appearance

Monday, 18 February 2019

Image via Pixabay

Many people go through periods in their lives of being dissatisfied with their physical appearances, and this can in turn be one of the major sources of a generalised sense of insecurity.

But the thing is, we’re not completely helpless when it comes to influencing the way we look, and if you feel unhappy with your appearance, there are various steps you can take.

Here are a few things to consider doing if you find yourself in this situation.

Research cosmetic surgery and discover what different procedures would entail and could realistically achieve.

Cosmetic surgery* should really be a last-resort option, not a first resort by any means, but it is worth keeping in mind that cosmetic surgery has been improving steadily for some time now, and there are many things that an experienced cosmetic surgeon might be able to do for you if needed.

The key thing is to research the options presented by cosmetic surgery before committing to them. Discover what different surgeries will entail. Seek out eyelid surgery video and descriptions before committing to eyelid surgery. Look up facial restructuring in detail before committing to it.

Develop realistic expectations about cosmetic surgery and be mindful of the risks involved, but be aware that there are potentially helpful options out there.

Work on improving your happiness and confidence in other domains of your life, and see how it alters your perspective on your looks.

Sometimes in life, we project our insecurities and dissatisfactions onto things like our looks, when in reality, the true root of the issue is deeper and less easy to spot.

It might be that if you improved your happiness and confidence in other domains of your life, you might find that you would feel significantly better about your looks, virtually overnight.

Work on improving your happiness and confidence in other domains of your life, whether that means learning new skills, starting a business, or working past old hang-ups, and see how it alters your perspective on your looks.

Commit to health and fitness

It’s amazing what committing in a serious way to your health and fitness can do for your looks. Healthier living, in general, can lead to better skin quality, better posture, and a more vital and attractive aura in general.

Getting fit can help to develop curves where you want them to be, and reduce them where you don’t want them to be.

And aside from the direct effect of health and fitness on your looks, making steady progress on an exercise plan will naturally develop your sense of pride.

Explore new fashion styles and see how they work for you

There’s an old saying that goes “clothes make the man”, and you could say something similar about women, too.

Of course, the stuff that really matters — your character, your morals, your personality — have nothing to do with what you wear. But the way you dress can have a very dramatic impact on how you look and feel on a daily basis.

If you want to feel better about how you look, spend some time experimenting with new styles and seeking out new outfits that make you feel your best.

I guess that's all from me and I'll see you guys on my next post. Take care!

Blogger's note: *addressed to non-Muslim readers. I haven't found a solid verse of Al-Quran that state aesthetic surgery is haram but I'd like to state my opinion as fellow Muslim that I'm not encouraging at all as I believe everyone's created in the most beautiful way as Allah is the Most Beautiful and He loves beautiful things. Objection towards aesthetic surgery is not absolute as it's rather an objection towards exaggeration and extremism. 

Blogger Mail | iUNIK Calendula Cleansing Oil

Saturday, 16 February 2019

It's Saturday and it's time for another Beauty Blogger Mail! You guys probably won't even believe me when I said that this package arrived after 7 months to my local post office!

So I received an email from iUNIK as I was selected as winner to review the cleansing oil back in August last year and finally I've received a call from a postman to come and collect the item from Pos Malaysia Kota Kinabalu so I went. I'm glad that the product arrived perfectly in its box, wrapped with bubble wrappers hence I don't see any dent on the box and no leakage whatsoever.

I'm going to include this oil-based cleanser later in my evening routine; most probably after I've finished my Shu Uemura cleansing oil being the closest one to be finished.

I guess that's all for now! I'd sure update you guys with a review once I've used it enough to remove my daily makeup.

I'll see you guys next time! Annyeong~

Blogger Mail | Althea Makeup Box

Saturday, 2 February 2019

Oh, my god! Just look at these bunch of makeup products from Althea and these are all under their in-house brand; Althea Exclusives including one skincare product that can help those who are stubborn enough to still applying makeup on acne like myself (thank God for the thinnest acne patch these days) and I'm going to do a makeup tutorial using most of the items I've got here.

I've been noticing brands releasing their own rosy lipstick line which comprises several lip products in the shade of reds and pinks which is not coincidence I'd say with the Valentine and Spring season rolling in few months. Although I'm not really into red lipsticks but I guess it's not wrong having one or two that suit my skin tone for special occasions so I'm glad I get to try all of those lip tints from Althea.

2019 is the year where brands are releasing/upgrading their concealers and Althea came out with their own 4 concealers! Looking at the shades, I think I can use 2 to conceal imperfections and the other 2 to use for my undereye area and highlight my brow bone. As I've tried some earlier, the consistency is quite thick/pigmented so I'm gonna experiment a bit to see how much product I need per usage.

There are 2 products that I can use to highlight my inner corner of my eyes; my god, it's one of those products that was so popular several years ago when lots of Korean makeup YouTubers use it in their makeup tutorials but these days I don't really see that anymore as most of them prefer using shimmery eyeshadows for that so let's see if I could actually pull off that look.

I'd say the highlight of this Althea makeup launch would be the eyeshadow palette and I love it! If you guys saw my Instagram Stories where I used 6 ZOEVA eyeshadow palettes to show the depth of my considerably new Christy Ng Bag so you'd notice that I hoard lots of eyeshadow palettes last year and this year, I'm planning to get one or two more palettes for Spring looks that I'm planning for more #myramakeupdiary that should be up next month on my Instagram feed. The Althea's palette has beautiful range of colours that can help you to create easy transitional day to night looks; natural to glam makeup looks so if you're beginner in makeup or just need a palette for traveling then do check out the palette!

All of the above products are already available to purchase on Althea; links are down below and if you're new to Althea and planning to purchase more than RM150, use my link (click here!) for 20% discount off your first purchase!

I guess that's all for now and I'll be seeing you guys on my next post. Annyeong~

Blogger Mail | WYNORA X COSRX One Step Green Hero Calming Pad

Thursday, 31 January 2019

Toner pads! I honestly don't know what's the generic term for this product but that's what I'm calling all the toners or liquids that come with cotton pads and usually packaged in tubs. The first toner pad I've got is a sister product to this number from the brand COSRX and it's one of those products that took me the longest to finish as I'm not an acne-prone person but beginning mid last year where I turned 30, I've noticed that some of facial area has started to become dry and flaky; thanks to episodes of allergic reactions but even after more than 6 months, the dry area doesn't seems to improve as much as I want to hence I'm looking for a solution/product that can help with the dryness at the same time doesn't irritate my skin (unlike abrasive physical scrubs or cleansing brush) in the process.

At this point, I know an exfoliating toner that usually contain AHA, BHA even PHA (gentle acids) can actually do that but I'm still looking for one that still offer hydration and peeling off i.e. exfoliate the dead skin cells gently. If you aren't familiar with acids in skincare, here's article that I found recently. Now that you know where I stand when it comes to gentle acids in skincare,  let's go to basic details of this product!

COSRX One Step Green Hero Calming Pad 

Product Description:
It focuses on weak acid exfoliation and soothing properties for sensitive skin with green tea water 75%, PHA 0.25%, and "Green-Rx complex", consisting of dandelion leaf, centella asiatica, witch hazel, tea tree leaf, and mugwort extract.

How to Use:
Swipe the embossing side across the face avoiding eye area after cleansing. Swipe the softer side across the face to pick up the remaining debris. Replace the lid tightly to make sure the pads stay wet and clean.

Camellia Sinensis Leaf Water, Butylene Glycol, Taraxacum Officinale (Dandelion) Leaf Extract, Centella Asiatica Extract, Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Leaf Extract, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Extract, Artemisia Princeps Extract, 1,2-Hexanediol, Cassia Obtusifolia Seed Extract, Lactobionic Acid, Maltodextrin, Panthenol, Polyglyceryl-10 Laurate, Polyglyceryl-10 Myristate, Glycerine, Arginine, Allantoin, Asiaticoside, Asiatic acid, Madecassic acid, Sodium Hyaluronate, Gardenia Florida Fruit Extract, Citrus Aurantium Bergamia (Bergamot) Fruit Oil, Menthyl Lactate, Mentha Haplocalix Extract

Ingredients highlight:
  • Dandelion Extract - soothing, reinforce skin barrier
  • Centella Asiatica Extract - skin texture improving, soothing
  • Witch Hazel Extract - soothing, hydrating
  • Tea Tree Leaf Extract - sebum & pore care
  • Mugwort Extract - soothing, vitality care 

Now, let's talk about the packaging!

Same as its sister products, this one too came in a box with similar design; the illustration of Mr. RX on top lid of the box with photo of the front elevation of the tub printed at the front part of the box.


At one side of the box, there's the ingredients list, instruction on how to use and more information printed while the period-after-opening (PAO) symbol is printed at the bottom of the box which indicates the product is to be used within 12 months after opening.

The toner pads came within the above sturdy, opaque white tub with a screw lid.


There's the expiration date printed at the bottom of tub and the format is YYYY.MM.DD so that's 12th November 2021. There's simple product description and instruction printed at the side of the tub as well.

There's also the white product seal that need to be taken off before using the product. No product seal? I'd suggest for you to return the product ASAP!

As I took the photo before using the product, you can see that the 70 pads are almost reaching the top of the tub. Don't you just love it when all the pads are still nicely arranged like that? I have found other products that came with disarranged pads and that's just unsightly. The toner is actually green in colour and there's only little of it left at the bottom of the tub to be absorbed.



The two sides of the pad is totally different; there's the embossed side of the pad where I usually wipe my whole facial area with and there's the smooth side of the pad where I tap my facial area with for the excess toner in it.

As you can see, there's definitely impurities/residues getting caught in there. I'd say this toner-soaked pads are not irritating even to my sensitive facial area; cheeks and jawline. There's a faint scent to it but I can't determine what's the scent is.

Overall, I do like it very much! I can't help when it's too easy to use and I kept reaching for it (which means both my morning and evening skincare routines) ever since I've got it! The toner is so soothing and surely toned down my redness to almost none. I also use couple of the toner pads as point mask; placing each of the pad on my cheeks for like 5 minutes before wiping off my whole facial area, neck, at the back of my ear and chest area. I sometimes place the whole tub in my refrigerator in the morning and use them for my evening routine. 

Now that I have all three of these toner pads, I'm using the One Step Moisture Up Pad (contains Hyaluronic Acid, propolis and natural BHA) in the morning while the One Step Original Clear Pad (contains betaine salicylate; a type of BHA and willow bark water; salicylic acid, also type of BHA) in the evening and this One Step Green Hero Calming Pad (contains 75% green tea, 10% Green-RX Complex and 0.25% PHA; Lactobionic Acid) in either of my routine especially when my skin is feeling irritated. I always use either of these pad toners right after cleansing and then proceed with my hydrating toner and the rest of skincare routine.

I know people with dry and sensitive skin would appreciate this product and love to have this in their skincare stash but if you're one of those who are a little bit sceptic, please refer this cosDNA page for your further reading. I gotta point out that almost all ingredients are rated 1 with Glycerine rated 2 when it comes to safety. 

Also, if you're familiar with unpa (beauty SNS platform with almost 2 million downloads) then you should know that this product is one of the winner for Pad Category. This product is also currently ranked at no.14 (best at no. 2) for Mask/Pack Category on Hwahae (beauty SNS platform with almost 4 million downloads)! Speaking of which, I wonder when can we have reliable English beauty SNS platform like these two?

Blogger Mail | TIA'M Hyaluronic Water Plumping Serum

Saturday, 26 January 2019

Before I dive into the product, let me just talk a little bit about Hyraluronic Acid; the star ingredient. As I started doing the whole 1-Day-1-Pack (pack here means sheet mask) around late 2017, I've noticed that most sheet masks that I've ran through; especially hydrating and moisturising ones contain one ingredient in common which is Hyaluronic Acid. Known to its functions in making the skin nicely hydrated, looking plumped and glowing (as if there's a film of water on your skin), Hyaluronic Acid has the ability to hold 1,000 times its weight in moisture so now that you know what to expect from this product, let's get started!

TIA'M Hyaluronic Water Plumping Serum

About 3 weeks ago, I've received the above serum from the brand's global Instagram page @tiam_global through their Reviewer Recruit Event that concluded last month and it's the first hyaluronic acid serum I ever tried therefore I am so excited to see what this serum can do to help my currently dehydrated skin thanks to hospital dry and cold environment that I'm enduring for the past few weeks!

But first, let's go to basic details on the serum.

Product Description:
  • A hydrating serum that infused with the Hyaluronic Acid Complex to instantly boost the moisture level of dehydrated skin.
  • Blended with lotus extract and panthenol to prevent moisture loss while leaving the skin feeling plumped.
  • This versatile formula can be mixed with liquid foundation or BB cream for a hydrating glow. 

How to Use:
Apply 2 to 3 drops onto the face after prepping the skin with toner.
Gently massage the face in circular motions and let absorb.

Water, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Nelumbium Speciosum Flower Extract, Betaine, 1-2,-hexandoil, Panthenol, HA-5 (Hyaluronic Acid, Hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid, Sodium Hyaluronate (Macromolecule & Micromolecule), Sodium Hyaluronate Crosspolymer) 1,500ppm, Polysorbate 60, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Allantoin, Hydrxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloydlimethyl Taurate Coplymer, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Xanthan gum, Citrus Aurantium Bergamia (Bergamot) Fruit Oil, Citrus Limon (Lemon) Peel Oil

Ingredients Highlight:

6 different types of Hyaluronic Acid in various sizes (high and low molecules) that penetrate deep into the different skin depths and hydrate the skin from inside and out.
  • Surface of the skin (Pulling Moisture and Forming Moisture Barrier):
    • Sodium Hyaluronate (macromolecules)
      • Attracts moisture to the surface of the skin and forms moisture barrier to prevent any future moisture loss.
  • Epidermis
    • Sodium Hyaluronate (Micromolecule)
      • Provides rich moisture to the epidermis and provides your skin with a continuous burst of intense hydration.
    • Sodium Hyaluronate Crosspolymer
      • Gradually releases abundant moisture from the epidermis to keep skin hydrated throughout the day.
  • Dermis (deepest layer of the skin)
    • Hyaluronic Acid

Now, let's go to the packaging!

The product came within a box and with other sides having Korean product description, one of the side has English product information including the ingredients list. 

The product came in that glass bottle with a simple label sticker. I love its simplicity.


At the back of the small bottle, there's a double sticker which at the inner sticker, the brand printed a tip and direction on using the serum in English. 

Of course, the popular method to dispense a product chosen by beauty companies these days would be using a pipette. It's easy and much more affordable compared to pump, I'm guessing.



The serum is both watery and slightly runny. It's also have a slightly milkish colour to it but once applied; evened out, it'll go nice and transparent with a little sheen to it.

The finish is just nicely moisturised-looking and I don't feel tackiness or anything. I usually don't care much for essence, serum even ampoules finishes as I'm going to apply moisturiser on top anyway so even if it's tacky, it's alright. I normally don't have wait times between application but I've noticed that the finish actually doesn't dries down or anything after several minutes and it does feel slightly heavy on skin so I'd suggest for you to massage a little bit more before moving onto your next step for your skincare routine.

Hyaluronic Acid can be combined its usage with vitamin products especially Vitamin C-based product to enhance the result; hydrated, moisturised skin with brighter complexion. I haven't got any Vitamin C yet as I've just got brightening serum for that but I'll be sure to update you guys once I did. 

Overall, I do like this serum. After using it almost everyday for the past few weeks, I can totally see how it helps with my dehydrated facial area which is U-Zone i.e cheeks to jawline and I'm going to continue on using the product to really see how it works after I actually finished a single bottle and boy, I think I'd be looking forward to purchase another bottle for this as it's fun to mix this serum product around with brightening skincare products that tend to dry out my skin after using them for years or maybe it's just a sign that I need to incorporate more heavier, thicker, moisturising, nourishing i.e. anti-aging skincare products in my daily skincare routines. With that said, I seriously need to amp up my day skincare routine as I'm being lazy with just 3 to 5 products every single day for the past year.

I guess that's all from me so do let me know your thoughts on this product and tell me if you have tried a similar product to this by leaving comments down below.

I'll be seeing you guys on my next post. Annyeong~
