Makeup Expiration dates

Hello beautiful, 

Share this picture with your girlfriends:) 




So today I'm cleaning my makeup drawers and I was putting away all the makeup that is expired. You must be wondering how do I know when to throw them away, unless the actually expiration date was on the product packaging. I wanted to share how long I keep my makeup product and when do I actually throw them away meaning that I don't use them already.( I don't throw my makeup product, I just keep them away because I love to keep all my makeup, maybe one day I will throw them away, but for now they are just for collection) 
You might be thinking, it's a waste to throw your makeup product because they are still like new product right? But you have to know when to say goodbye and get a new one because they are full of bacteria. And you must be asking how the bacteria even grow in there? When the applicator come in contact with you directly to your skin, lips or lashes you didn't clean it before you put the applicator back to its tube or packaging so thats how the bacteria breeding inside. Bad makeup products can cause you irritation and breakouts, and it's really bad for your skin. So you don't want to go out and come home with redness o rashes on your skin. 

Let me know how long do you keep your makeup product?

Tokyo Luxe Gift Box

Tokyo Luxe Gift Box

Hello beautiful, 
 


 I love to check out Japanese fashion style , hair style and makeup pictorial.When I think of Japanese style, I would say Kawaii (cute), of course they have a lot style but cute style is what come to my mind first. They can match everything from the hair to the makeup, their clothing, shoes and bag and overall they are very into the details like every blings count and they match up so that they can get perfect look. Japanese girl will wear makeup to show their respect to others.

Talking about makeup, they have tons of makeup cosmetic selling with very cute packaging too.
 Every packaging of their makeup product, they design it and make you feel pretty from the moment you see the product, you can already imagine yourself with that makeup on. You can't resist the beautiful packaging and you feel like buying everything. 

In Malaysia, I don't think a lot of choices of Japanese makeup brand available. But now I think we can easily get Japanese cosmetic from Tokyo Luxe. I'm so excited  to talk about this online website that provides beauty box. 

I recently received a gift box from Tokyo Luxe, which I'm so happy ! woot woot! It's actually like a beauty box. And the products in the box,  are all from Japanese brand makeup and skincare product. So basically most of the brand they included is famous brand in Japan, but they are not available for sale here in Malaysia. So let's us see what's in the box that I got.



Information 

Product Name: Tokyo Luxe Gift box

Price: $32 (singapore dollar)

Where to get: http://member.tokyoluxey.com/clk.php?ssid=225&iid=8


I'll start with skincare product first.
Make It&Co- Wash Oil
For sensitive skin 
It's an all-in-one makeup remover, face wash and moisturiser. So you just apply a good amount of product to your face or body, and with circular motion, then add water and it will emulsify, then you wash it.  It is recommended to use it twice daily. 
 
My review: 
 
Pros: 
- smell really good contains essential oil
- suitable for sensitive skin
- can remove makeup
- the texture of the oil more to watery type and really easy to work on the face, I really like the texture of it because sometimes oil based cleanser doesn't make me comfortable to use, becuase it's feel oily, but this one is more to watery type so it's good.
- after you add water, it emulsify and it leaves the skin very smooth and brighten up the skin, another thumbs up
- It can be use for body as well

con: 
- not directly to the product, but it come in a travel size in this gift box so I don't know where to get it, but I think soon Tokyo luxe will be selling their product on their website.
Overall, I like this wash oil, I love the texture of this oil based cleanser, and it doesn't dry up my skin. It leave smooth and brighten skin after wash.
Overal, I like the scent of this cleanser it make me calm while 'm cleansing my face. But I'm not really a big fan of oil based cleanser, because my it will dry up my skin.

Make it &Co-Premium Gel
This is an anti ageing gel, it help the skin look and feel more soft, supple and younger. It contains Macadamia nut oil which is excellent anti ageing properties due to its richness in anti oxidant and vitamins. Also included Rose floral water for toning effects. 
My review: 
Pros: 
- After I apply it on my skin, it doesn't feel greasy
-quickly absorb 
- It's a moisturiser, and I think it has fair moisture level
- the texture is more between creamy gel type, it's cooling and glides on easily
Con: 
- The moment I apply it on my face, I don't like the smell of it, but the smell didn't stay longer
 
Overall, I think it's quite okay as a moisturizer, not really sure if it can really help with anti ageing, but it's a fine moisturizer that doesn't feel too rich or too oily although it targeting anit ageing. It does leave smooth and soft feeling after used.

 Platinum Mascara Waterproof
 This is a mascara by AYA, she is a Japanese Tv reporter that living oversea, she wanted her eyelashes to have more volume and look as black as it can be. Because she wanted to stand out from other American reporters in the glitzy world of media. So that's why she want to make her eyes more impact. So she designed a unique mascara brush and it become popular in Japan, and also it was available in Sephora.
My review : 
Pros: 
- great colour payoff 
- lengthening
-volumising
- waterproof
- don't smudge
- no clump
- the brush applicator easy to use, can apply upper and lower lashes , even inner corner.

KOJI lash Concierge
A little bit of Koji, it was the first maker in Japan to sell false eyelashes ( in japan Tsuke-matsuge). They wanted to enhance the beauty of geisha's eyes which led to the development of false eyelashes. 

My review :

This BB cream is rank #1 on the Japanese cosmetics information site@cosme and on the largest e-commerce website Rakuten. This Bb cream contain spf 31 PA++ , placenta and EGF.

- even out my skin tone

My review: 
Pros:

Lancome Advanced Génefique Youth activating concentrate Review

Hello beautiful, 
I recently added a new product to my daily skincare routine, it is the Lancome New advanced genefique youth activator. A youth activator, wow sound interesting right ? It claim to brighten up your skin in just first 7 days of using it. This serum also targeting 10 key signs of youth : Texture, resiliency, elasticity, firmness, sageness, fine lines, wrinkles, radiance, even skin tone, and clarity, give result in 7 days. Does it work on my skin ? Is this a magic portion that can really make you look younger ? 



Information

Product name: Lancome Advanced Genefique Youth activating Concentrate

IngredientsWATER, BIFIDA FERMENT LYSATE, GLYCERIN, ALCOHOL DENAT., DIMETHICONE, HYDROXYETHYLPIPERAZINE ETHANE SULFONIC ACID, ASCORBYL GLUCOSIDE, SODIUM HYALURONATE, SODIUM HYDROXIDE, SODIUM BENZOATE, PHENOXYETHANOL, ADENOSINE, FAEX EXTRACT/YEAST EXTRACT/EXTRAIT DE LEVURE, PEG-20 METHYL GLUCOSE SESQUISTEARATE, PEG-60 HYDROGENATED CASTOR OIL, SALICYLOYL PHYTOSPHINGOSINE, AMMONIU POLYACRYLDIMETHYLTAURAMIDE/AMMONIUM POLYACRYLOYLDIMETHYL TAURATE, LIMONENE, XANTHAN GUM, CAPRYLYL GLYCOL, DISODIUM EDTA, OCTYLDODECANOL, CITRONELLOL, FRAGRANCE

Suitable for : All skin types

How to use: Apply this morning /night, after cleansing and toner.

Where to buy: Nationwide Lancome counters


This is the product packaging. The design is very luxury feeling, it's made out of glass bottle, the cap is plastic. 
The packaging is design to prevent leakage, you can close the cap until you hear a click sound to activate the safety lock. 



I like that they included a dropper, I think it is more hygienic and good control of how much product you want. Beside that, the dropper self loading, you just need to pump out the product, so it is an amount that you apply directly to your face.



The texture not too watery or sticky, it's easy to absorb, once you swipe on your face, a few second then it will fully absorb.

My review: 


Pros: 
- suitable for all skin type
- not sticky
- absorb quickly
- nice packaging, easy control of how much product you need. 
- light serum that doesn't feel oily
- Improve my skin texture, smoother
- skin look glowing after 7 days 
- skin look firmer after 7days 

cons: 
- quite expensive

Overall, I like this serum, after I apply it on my face, it doesn't feel sticky or greasy. It absorbs very quickly. The texture is not too watery and too sticky so it helps to glide on smoothly. I was a bit skeptical that it's going to show the result after 7 days, but my skin show that the result is good, I can see improvement on my skin, I can see that my face is firmer and glowing. I have been under the sun recently, and my skin obviously turn darker now, but this product let my skin look brighter and radiance, so I'm happy with the result. But the downside is the price quite expensive but if you'd like to try out without buying the full sized first,  you can check out their counter for a sample.



What do you think of this serum ? Have you tried it before ? Let me know your thought.

My Velashape III slimming treatment Experience

Wednesday, July 2, 2014

My Velashape III slimming treatment Experience

Hello beautiful,
If you follow me on My Facebook page you probably know that I went to The retreat clinic to try out their slimming treatment called Velashape III. Finally, I blog about it and share with you guys my first experience with Velashape III.

Velashape III slimming treatment can help contour, shape and slim your body. The result can be seen after first treatment, no kidding at all because I tried it myself and I really see the difference before and after. I'm really happy with the result, I notice that my tummy is firmer. It can treat arms, tummy and thighs.



If you worried of pain while doing this treatment, I would say maximum 3 out 10 of the level of pain, you don't have to worry about suffering from pain it only feels like hot massaging and after the treatment your skin might turn red and then feel like mild bruise ( for my case).

I didn't have any side effect. This is a safe slimming treatment suitable for all skin types and colours. It is most effectively treating targeted area that diet and exercise might not able to help, especially for cellulite problem. This is a very famous treatment in the United States, currently in Malaysia The Retreat Clinic is the only one that provide this treatment.

How it works?

So basically how this machine works, it has elōs technology combination of Bi-polar Radiofrequency(RF), infrared Light energy and vacuum to target and heat fatty tissues within the treatment area, their surrounding connective tissue and the underlying dermal collagen fibers. The machine will give heat and vacuum to stimulate the growth of new and better collagen and elastin which results in localised reduction on skin laxity, body volume and an overall improvement on skin structure and texture.





This is how the machine look like. 

The treatment was done in a room that look like a facial room, it was comfortable. I was told to changed to the shorts they provided and take off my clothes. Then they measure my tummy and take before treatment photo. After that, I lied down on the bed and the treatment was done by their trained staff, not the doctor.

First she will apply soothing cream to give a protection layer on my skin and also to let the machine to glides on easily.

Then she will start the treatment by setting a suitable heat and other settings. 


 You will feel heat coming out while the machine rolling and vacuum your skin, this process can increase the metabolism of stored energy, increases lymphatic drainage and reduce or shrinks the size of the actual fat cells and fat chambers. While the machine doing its work, the temperature will automatic increase and if you feel too hot you can let the therapist know, she will stop and reapply the soothing cream and start again.

She will do a circular motion start from my left centre part of my tummy.

 You can see the screen on how much time left.

After she had done both left and right centre part, then she moved on to my left side. I'm having 30 minute treatment.

She will use this yellow thing to measure the heat. you can see my skin turn red and it's normal because my skin is more sensitive.

 After my treatment, just a little bit of redness around my tummy and when I touched my skin I felt  like mild bruise.
I am very satisfied with the result that Velashape III has given me, because I really can see the difference from my first treatment,  my tummy area is now more firm up, can you imagine if I go for 4 treatment, I think it will be perfect. But after my first treatment, it make easier to slim down my trouble area by doing exercise and good diet.

If you have trouble area that no matter how much you diet and exercise, you need to try out this treatment, after you done your first treatment, continue with your exercise and diet, the process to let it slim is much easier. This is also great for after baby body, it really helps a lot to quickly get back your shape.

If you are interested on trying out this slimming treatment, they also provided  first trial promotion just check out their website for more info.
