Samples for day care- Active-Pearl Gel Cream, 3D Refining Day Cream

Active Pearl Gel Cream

- Anti-oxidant protection
- Clean and brighten
- Anti-acne and oil control
- Moisturizes and repairs

After cleansing, place an adequate amount on the palm of your hand and apply evenly to the face.

Texture: cream type in white

Scent: Smell good

It’s my first time using cream type serum. Normally I use gel type. Although I am having combination skin (oily on T-Zone area and dehydrated on cheek areas), but I do hope to see my nose appears to be oily. It is not sticky. Normally, I do not use whitening product during day time because I worry my skin will turn dark by exposing my face to sunlight. The good point of this product is that it comes with the function of protecting us from UV light.

Rating: 3.5/5

3D Refining Day Cream (Brightening)

It is makeup nourishing cream base with anti-oxidant and sunblock. It prevents your skin from being clogged up by cosmetic products and external pollutants.

The 3D optical effect design will give you a perfect look, as it instantly reflects light to achieve a natural concealing effect.

- Smoothes fine lines
- Multi-whitening actions
- Soothes and Repairs
- Enhanced moisturizing effect
- Improved 3D complexion
How to use: Place adequate amount on your finger tip or a cotton pad and apply evenly to your face. Use more on T-zone for better 3D effect.

Texture: Cream Base.

Scent: It smells nice. If you have used Beauty Talk product before, their products smell good always.

I rate this 3D refining day cream high. Although it is cream but it is not sticky. You will be surprised by its effect. It can act like make up base. And I currently do not own any make up base. I’m thinking to purchase this as it comes two benefits. Skin care+ make up. Two function at one price.

Before & After

- 3D effect-

Previously, my face is dull and uneven skin tone. After applying, It evens out my skin tone and it instantly reflects light to achieve a natural concealing effect looks shining. Don’t get me wrong. It’s not the oily type of shine. It gives me natural glow. My skin looks fabulously natural and makeup-free. My pores appear to be small instantly by just applying a thin layer. Really love this to the max! You shouldn’t miss it.

Rating: 5/5

Night Care

From Left to Right: Double Cleansing gel, Refine Toning Lotion, Snowy Memory Essence, Snowy Moisture Cream

The samples of night care - Double Cleansing gel, Snowy Memory Essence, Snowy Moisture Cream

Double Cleansing Gel

Texture: Watery Base. Does not clog my pores like cleansing oil, I’m fine with it. But the samples is so little, I finish it faster T.T than other samples. It’s not enough for me.

After adding in some water, I message it until it become into foam. The bubble is soft and I like it. Somehow it dries up fast and you need to act fast! Therefore, my samples run out fast.

It cleans pores and leaving skin instantly refreshed and refined.The result is good and my face is clean. Besides it is also make up remover. What you need to do is to make sure u apply it on your skin without adding water.

Snowy Memory Essence

Enables skin to recall its capacity to be fair and white
It effectively inhibit, block and diminish melanin and, at the same time, notably improve, repair and brighten your skin.

-Delay development of melanin
-Hinder melanin formation
-Control spot formation
-Moisturizes, nourishes and repairs the skin

After cleansing face, use adequate amount of product in the palm and apply it onto your face. Gently massage it to generate maximum effect. Recommended to use before bedtime.

Scent: smell good

Texture: It’s watery base.

And it’s easy to spread it on our skin.

It absorbs fast into our skin and hydrates m skin as it contains Sodium Hyaluronate (HA) with the 400 times of water retention capacity over conventional moisturizer.

Rating: 4.5/5

Snowy Moisture Cream

The weightless and smooth creamy texture gives skin a well-nurtured touch. It is like water droplets gliding over your face nourishing your skin instantly. The product simultaneously whitens and re-hydrates your face.

-Brightens and whitens
-Lightens appearance of dark spots
-Moisturizes and repairs
-Anti-aging and anti winkle

Apply adequate amount on your finger tip and massage until the product is fully absorbed.

Cream Type.

I’m glad Snowy Cream is not sticky and oily. I can feel that my skin is soft and moisture. It contains Lactic Acids to enhance the moisturizing effect and reduce formation of fine lines.

Rating: 4/5

Massage your face like the steps below and you could get better result

Overall, I’m satisfied with the products but I could not the result yet. I don mind to purchase any trial kit to try again.

Starhill 3.6 Promotion- Shook!

After reading Jean's blog regarding Starhill 3.6 Tea- Break promotion, I've decided to visit the restaurant at Starhill.

This tea break promotion is from 3pm to 6 pm on daily basis with Rm3.60 ++ per item. No reservation is needed.The participating restaurant are Fisherman's Cove, Shook!, Lu Yu Tea House and Pak Loh Chiu Chow Restaurant. If i'm not mistaken, the promotion ends in Dec ( but better check it)
After doing a little research, I picked up Shook!
It's lovely Saturday afternoon. I couldn't wait to taste the food there as i have seen so many delicious food pics when i was doing the research.
Finally, It's 2.50pm. Taking escalator.

Heading to Shook! Not much people yet.

One of reasons we pick up this restaurant because of its environment (Based on outlook of the restaurant).
Menu of Starhill 3.6 Tea Break Promotion


Each item costs RM3.6o and subject to 10% service charge and 5% government tax.
Yummy Yummy Time

Left: Lemon Lime Punch
Right: Blue Hawaiian
Mine is Blue Hawaiian. It's pineapple juice mix with other thing but i forgot what's that =)
8- inch Cumberland Sausage with mashed potato.
I love the mashed potato to the max! It tastes so nice. It's the first time i try this type of sausage. Dear says it's nice but i have mixed feeling. A bit wasabi (guess only- i'm not a food expert)+ black pepper. But it's ok for me.
Classic Salad
6 inch Pepperoni Pizzza.
It's not thick at all. My advice is to add more pepperoni and cheese- add on RM3.60. It would taste better.
Pasta with Aglio- olio
The best amongst all. Somemore with two big prawns. I think Shook's pasta is not bad. Of course, the portion is so small since it only costs RM3.60. It's not enough for me.
Total: 8 items
Normally, you have to pay more than this price if you dine in cozy restuarant in Starhill. So i think it's affordable for most of the people for Rm3.60 per item.

My 20th and 30th day of using Avene Sensitive White

Remember my post on 10th day of using Avene Sensitive White? Now it’s time to share my one month experience with Avene whitening products.

Click for larger image.

The diagram below guides you well on how to apply Avene Sensitive White products.

My Skin Care Routine

Cleansing Oil: Kanebo Cleansing oil
Cleanser: Hada Labo AHA/BHA Foaming Wash
Lotion/Toner: Sensitive White Lotion
Eye Gel: H20+ Eye Oasis Moisture
Essence/ Serum: Sensitive White Essence
Mosturizer: Sensitive White Fluid
Sunblock: Avene Very High Protection Emulsion.

Check out my previous post to get more information on Sensitive White products.

Avene Very High Protection Emulsion SPF50+

Before stepping out of my house, usually, I will put on sunblock. Previously, I did not wear sunblock so often because I dislike the scent and the oiliness on my face it left. But for me, it is a must due to my brown spots. I don’t want pigmemtation.T.T. However, I have changed my mind toward sunblock after using Avene Very High Protection Emulsion.

It's white cream type and non greasy after applying.
Compared to other sunblock I’ve used before, it is not so sticky even though the spf is 50. That’s the point I like it. It smells good too. I love the scent honestly. Now, I would not hesitate to put on sunblock after moisturizer. This small tube is easy to be brought along. I bring it e.v.e.r.y.w.h.e.r.e.

I'm not afraid of staying under the sun anymore!

Attention to those whose skin are fair, your chances of having brown spot which lead to pigmentation is higher, Prevention is better than cure! Start to put on your sun block and make it a habit. Using Sunblock Everyday Keeps Pigmentation Away!

Witness my great experience of using Avene Sensitive White within one month

16th Day Vs 20th Day

Having a small pimple on forehead as I am having my menses. Normally, it takes very long time to let a pimple to recover. To my surprise, on 20th day, the pimple has reduced its size. Great! I feel embarrassed to have pimple on my face and it’s just gone in few days.

20th day Vs 30th day

I believe the miracle would continue. Spend the rest of the 10days with Avene. 80% of acne scar has disappeared and still left the stubborn one. The uneven skin tone around my mouth area was brightened. Not only that, overall my face is fairer than last time. I notice there is lesser breakout since I’ve been using Avene Sensitive White.
