Did you know about Sigma Beauty’s sister brand Pracktk? Practk offers affordable yet high-quality beauty tools you can count on. Very recently they launched their version of makeup blending sponge call Practk Power Blender. These latex-free beauty sponges come in three colors, green, purple and blue. I’ve got two of them and they look simply cute! I’m a forever fan of Beauty Blender but I always love to try substitutes and affordable versions. Afterall who wouldn’t care for the price, right? I did like a couple of affordable blending sponges earlier and when Practk came with their sponges I couldn’t be happier. Needless to say how much I love every Sigma Beauty product as well as the Practk palmat brush cleaning mat. I’m yet to post a review of the Practk Palmat here in the blog but you can check on my youtube Palmat in action when deep cleaning my makeup brushes. Anyways, lets me tell you… how is Practk Power blender? It’s a latex-free blending sponge (as I mentioned before) with an egg shape. Also has a flat cut to reach every possible corner of the face. The shape of it is actually very handy to apply foundation, concealer under the eyes. Works also great […]

Klairs Supple Preparation Toner – Unscented version launched mid-March this year keeping the sensitive skin in mind. Previously the original Klairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner was much loved by the user however for the fragrance and essential oil included sensitive skin people was really been able to love it as much as other was loving it. I’ve used quite a few minis of the Klairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner, original version earlier. Never bought a full size because there was always a couple of mini in my stock which I was getting complimentary with purchase from here and there. When the new unscented version came out I was sent one for reviewing purpose. I have mentioned in my early skincare posts (e.g. belif Prime Infusion Ampoules review) that I’ve been trying out this Klairs toner if you’ve noticed. After using Klairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner – Unscented version, though a comparison between this new unscented version of Klairs toner vs. the original can help you to make the purchase decision regardless if you have a normal or a sensitive skin type. Ingredients of Klairs Supple Preparation toner – Unscented Water, Butylene Glycol, Dimethyl Sulfone, Betaine, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Natto Gum,Sodium Hyaluronate, Disodium […]
Yes, belif Prime Infusion Repair Program Ampoules is an intense 6 week program for anti-aging care. I appreciate that these don’t claim to work magic within a magical time period like one or two weeks like most of the brands/products out there. Don’t get me wrong, I do laugh at when I see anti-aging claims within two weeks. Just being honest! Do you remember I told you guys while reviewing other belif products for oily skin that I’m keen to try out their anti-aging range next? I was definitely eyeing on their Prime Infusion range. It’s a fairly new skincare range by belif that seemed to amazing skin regenerative properties. Thanks to belif Malaysia, I was sent belif Prime Infusion Repair Program Ampoules two+ months ago to give them a try. Right now I’m at the end of the fifth week and from tomorrow I’ll start the last week, will be using the step 3 – Reactivate ampoule. Are you wondering what actually a skincare Ampoules is? Ampoule or ampoules is something similar to essences or serums. However, it’s not the same, an ampoule is a supercharged and targeted serum with higher concentrations of active ingredients. It works usually as a booster within a time […]
Hada Labo Premium Whitening Lotion is a fairly new product on the market. This lotion is from their Shirojyun range and contains tranexamic acid. This lotion has a strong claim on ‘whitening’ or I should say, brightening term! That special ingredient tranexamic acid does the job to brighten up the skin. Tranexamic Acid was completely an unknown term to me until I was sent this Hada Labo Premium Whitening Lotion to try out! I obviously googled a bit to know about this acid and how it works. Turns out this particular acid is widely used to treat excessive bleeding. Does that sound weird to you? – It felt not-so-usual to me at least. However, with a bit of further study, it was all clear to me. Tranexamic Acid (trans-4-aminomethyl cyclohexane carboxylic acid) is widely used in Asian skincare, (from Shiseido to Paula’s Choice). It says that a certain percentage of this acid works gold standard for skin issues like hyperpigmentation, melasma and etc. This acid also works for damaged and darkened skin. I wouldn’t go in depth of this specific ingredient of Hada Labo Premium Whitening Lotion her but talk about the product. After all, I’m no chemist or a skin specialist to point out anything but […]
I took the 2 weeks acne clearing challenge recently by Eucerin ProACNE Solution A.I. Clearing Treatment. Basically, it’s a Moisturizer for acne-prone skin that claims to control oil, unclog pores, visibly reduce acne and prevent them coming back. I was sent this Eucerin Pro Acne Solution anti-acne moisturizer by Eucenrin Malaysia to try it out. The product initially claims to clear out acne within two weeks. I don’t have an acne prone skin to start with. However, I do get one or two acne bumps sometimes due to hormonal changes, for my bad food habit or irregular skincare routine. A couple of weeks ago I got one in my forehead (was sharing about it in my Instagram-stories, if you’ve noticed). Right away I thought this is the perfect time to thy the claim ofEucerin ProACNE Solution A.I. Clearing Treatment. About Eucerin Skin Care Eucerin is the one skincare brand with “dermo-cosmetic” philosophy. The brand’s origins are in a pharmacy, founded by Paul C. Beiersdorf in 1882, Hamburg, Germany. With its 100 years of Beiersdorf research, Eucerin skin care delivers visibly healthier, radiant skin.

Earlier this month I had my personalized facial treatment at Murad Skin, DaMen Lifestyle Mall, KL. I’m still buzzing a little bit from that facial treatment session. It was not my first time doing facial at Murad Skin, I had the experience previously as well. The reason behind going back at Murad once aging obviously because of the benefits I’ve experienced. Thus I thought to write this article featuring Murad facial service so you can have an idea how things are done there. Where it is suggested to do facial treatments once a month but I myself completely ignore that on purpose. Blame goes to busy life schedule as well as I don’t it like to splurge much on a clinical facial treatment. Although I won’t deny that a clinical facial treatment is beneficial to treat skin according to its need. But the less happy fact is that these facial treatments aren’t cheap at all. At Murad Skin I love the fact that they serve just according to the skins current requirements. You can book an appointment at Murad online or offline just to consult with the therapist. Before consulting you won’t know what facial is actually recommended for you. The […]
