REVIEW ON MELVITA L'ARGAN BIO BODY OIL-IN-CREAM

Hi beauties,

It has been long...since I reviewed some body products from France.  I actually bought Melvita L'Argan Bio Body Oil in Cream some time ago and have been taking ages to do review on it since I was either busy, tired, small sick, my toy is sick, my books are sick, my brain is not working and bla bla bla bla .... (my usual excuses and complains XD ).

I guess it is about time that I review Melvita L'Argan Bio Body Oil in Cream because if not I will not probably do it until I finish the whole jar.  If you have very dry body skin like I do, then do have a look at my review for this body cream for very dry skin.


Melvita L'Argan Bio Body Oil in Cream
Melvita L'Argan Bio Body Oil in Cream

Melvita has created a unique texture to reveal the exceptional lipid-replenishing powers of its organic argan oil. The richness of argan oil is captured in a cream that melts into the skin, leaving it beautifully soft.

Enriched with nourishing sunflower oil and protective beeswax, the Oil-in-Cream helps rebuild the hydrolipidic film, making it ideal for dry and dehydrated skin. Thanks to the formula’s high concentration of fatty acids (almost 25%), skin is nourished, regenerated, protected and feels like velvet

Non-comedogenic
99% of the total ingredients are from natural origin.
24% of the total ingredients are from Organic Farming

During shower, massage and exfoliate the skin with a body scrub in a circular motion to remove dead skin cells and improve absorption of the Melvita L'Argan Bio Body Oil in Cream. For best results, apply while the skin is slightly damp. Remember to pat dry skin instead of rubbing with towel.

Melvita L'Argan Bio Body Oil in Cream
Melvita L'Argan Bio Body Oil in Cream is made from organic and natural ingredients.  There are ingredients that supplies the oil and water (water, sunflower seed, Shea butter, cetearyl alcohol&vitamin E) to prevent the loss of moisture from the skin which happens with dry skin type.  Skin dry tends not to have enough oil and water so this product supplies those two to help condition the dryness of dry skin type.

It is a thick cream that absorbs into the skin after rubbing it a few times.  Personally, the Shea butter smell gets weaker after the cream dries down.  It isn't sticky and doesn't up even with constant rubbing.  It has the same smells as Melvita L'argan Bio Body Butter which is nice.

The jar really lasted me so time because I only need a little for my arms and legs.

Overall, I think this is a great nice cream if you are looking for organic products, do not mind spending the money and have really dry skin.



Product retails for
Melvita L'Argan Bio Body Oil in Cream RM 109

So, here is 1028 Visual Therapy Big Eyes Magnifier Mascara that promises doll eyelashes.

1028 Visual Therapy Big Eyes Magnifier Mascara has faint smells of how most mascara smells like. I do like the cone brush as it is easy to reach even the tiniest eyelashes that I have. I have really light coloured and sparse eyelashes so my eyelashes are never visible.

The mascara is black, doesn't smudges, doesn't flakes and it is waterproof. It doesn't clump no matter how many layers I applied on my eyelashes which is really great on my lousy makeup skills.  It is remove easily with cleansing water.  With  1028 Visual Therapy Big Eyes Magnifier Mascara, my eyelashes just seems to grow XD .  The mascara lasted on me for more than 8 hours and never even once smudge.

It will make you look like you have eyelash extension for you. I just don't have any visible eyelashes and the photo is the truth.

Overall, 1028 Visual Therapy Big Eyes Magnifier Mascara is great affordable mascara, easy to use cone shape without poking my eyes with it and does me look like I have mascara.



Product retails for
1028 Visual Therapy Big Eyes Magnifier Mascara RM59 at Watsons My

GUIDE ON SHOPPING FOR ASIAN BEAUTY PRODUCTS IN MALAYSIA

Hi Asian beauty products,

Here is a shopping guide for Asian Beauty products in Malaysia.

If you are coming to Malaysia or having overlay in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia you might be interested to shop for Asian cosmetics or skincare products in Malaysia because like many people said, it is a shopping paradise because everything is cheap here.

shopping guide for Asian Beauty products in Malaysia


It isn't the same thing for us who doesn't earn much but well...

I actually put up this guide as a request so I hope that you will find this helpful.  Since I cannot afford to travel to Kuala Lumpur often because of reasons(money problem&the distance of 8 hours away),  I hope for your understanding.

If you are in Kuala Lumpur, you can actually find most of the popular drugstore places for Asian brands.  Most of shopping places are in popular shopping malls such as the Midvalley Megamall, One Utama, Paradigm, Pavilion, Suria KLCC, Sunway Pyramid.  Another shopping place are Queensbay in Penang and Suria Sabah Mall which is in Sabah.

There are information counters in all those shopping malls where one can ask for the direction for the shop. Those shopping malls opened from 10am to 10pm so shop all you want. It is just most malls are really very crowded during weekends XD so becareful with your things.



In Every shopping Malls

Daiso-Best Japanese place to shop for RM5.90(price increased).  I have been to the one in Pavillion, Midvalley(2 floor) and Sungai Wang are really big.  Konjac sponge, silicon mask, decant spray bottles, snacks are some of the stuff worth buying.


Watsons- This is Asian drugstore where you can find many varieties of Taiwanese brands, Korean and Japanese brands.  Each Watsons has different kind of brands depending on the size of that outlets.  Some of the brands are in the lowest shelves so look everywhere for them XD. They have house brand as well.  Do check the link for the list of full brands available in Watsons since there are too many of them for me to list them all down here.

However, there are some brands that are only available online such as Cosrx(only saw two of the products in there) because of the limited amount of products. There are also some brands(Canmake, Peripera, Marjolica Marjoca) that are not available online but they available in Watsons outlets.

Hada Labo, Naruko, My Beauty Diary, My scheming, Himalaya neem products, Mediheal Line friend, Dr.Check Hydrocolloid, Miacare hydrocolloid acne patches, Ellips for hair, Mandom Bifesta cleansing water, Coni beauty jelly mask, Leaders sheet mask, Sexy look sheet mask, Lovemore sheet masks, Kinohitmisu health products, Liese hair products, Mediheal sheet masks, Freshel are some of the products that you can check it out. As for makeup,  Koji Dolly Wink, Kiss Me, Canmake, Ma Cherie, Senka, Tsubaki, Peripera lip ink and Clio are some of the brands.


Guardian-This is another popular drugstore that has a lot of brands that are exclusive to them.  So, always do go into Guardian to check and compare the prices with Watsons for that extra saving XD.
They also have their own house brands.

List of all their exclusive brands HERE

Kailijumei jelly lipstick, Choonee, Mentholatum(lip balm), Paladio and etc.

Himalaya Herbal Healthcare- this is a quiet shop which feels really healthy and so mostly people are afraid to walk in.  However, I said to walk in and find that Neem capsules and some of the Aryuvedic herbs which are available in their outlets and not in Watsons outlets or Guardian outlets.  However, one might have to ask a few outlets as it is always sold out.  I like their Neem mask pack and their Neem cleanser.

Sasa Malaysia- one of the biggest Sasa is in Midvalley so here you can find a lot of products as well.  Mediheal, Dr.Young, Dr. Wu, Haruhada, Shills, Kikumasamune, Oozoo, Pupa, Koji, JayJun, Canmake, Kiss Me, Koji Dolly Wink, Kose, Dejavu, B'Liv, Darkness, Son&Park etc

* You could click on the main words to go into the website of the malls. Then, click on the beauty and wellness to look into the shops that you would like to check out.


The Saem Malaysia outlets are in only in Kuching and Miri Sarawak. You can find it in famous online shopping Hermo.MY
Always21-an affordable Korean brand for students. Here is for list of outlets if interested. Also not transport friendly.




I think this is all for the guide.  Enjoy your shopping in Malaysia and let me know if there are any questions.  There are some other shopping malls within walking distance near Pavillion such as Lot10, Sungai Wang and Times Square which you can check them out as well. The structure in Sungai Wang is confusing and there isn't much to shop in there so not mentioning it here. Many of the shops in Times Square are available in Pavillion so I guess it is pointless to make you walk 20 minutes over to that malls XD.


I am not paid for this guide and not affiliated with them.  As of today, there are some companies that did not reply to my request for list of brands in their shop so I couldn't accurately list out everything.

The opinions expressed here are my own and honest as always.

REVIEW ON ALWAYS21 SUN PERFECT ALOE DAILY SUN MILK SPF 50 PA+++

Hi,

Here is a Korean sunscreen for review, Always21 Sun Perfect Aloe Daily Sun Milk SPF 50 Pa+++.

The word 'Perfect' caught me.

Anyway, there is already enough preaching about the importance of using sunscreen😍.  Bla. Bla.. skincare...bla bla...prevent cancer...UV rays, ...terrible sun exposure and the list goes on...So, just protect your skin to prevent fast ageing.

In beauty products, cyclopentasiloxane is used as a conditioner, delivery agent, lubricant and solvent. Like all other silicones, this ingredient makes the sunscreen easily spreadable.  Silicone(dimethicone) is after water so it might not play well if applied a lot.  Zinc oxide is the fourth ingredient so it is actually good for the skin since zinc does help to protect skin and heal skin.

Always21 Sun Perfect Aloe Daily Sun Milk also contains parfum, paraben, algae, aloe vera juice (3%) and titanium oxide. There is also Butylene glycol which is low on the list and so it is better for someone whose skin don't work that well with butylene glycol.

Always21 Sun Perfect Aloe Daily Sun Milk doesn't have the white cast when applied on skin. The sunscreen has milk emulsion texture and also spread easily on my skin. However, it does clogged my pores if I applied too much since my skin don't work that well with few of the ingredients which are titanium oxide and dimethicone (it is high on the list).  It dries down to a matte looking and feels soft when i touch it with my hands.  It doesn't cause piling on the skin which is great for people who use makeup.

Overall, Always21 Sun Perfect Aloe Daily Sun Milk is good for someone with oily skin or combination skin and have the love for water based sunscreen.

REVIEW ON DR. LEWINN'S ESSENTIALS PURIFYING TONER


Looking for Dermatologist grade products without breaking your bank?
How about read into my review about Dr.Lewinn's Essentials Purifying Toner here? I have been using it for over 3 weeks and here is my review on this.

I have reviewed Dr.Lewinn's Essentials 4 Fusion Cleansing oil (love) which I used along with this toner .

Here is a little about Dr.Lewinn's skincare products.

Founded in 1989 based on the private formulations of Dr. Laurence LeWinn, a world-renown plastic surgeon to the Hollywood stars, Dr. Lewinn’s is the best-selling premium skincare brand in Australian pharmacies, it was voted the No.1 Australian premium skincare brand for 11 years running by the Michael Edwards Cosmetic & Perfume Survey.

Dr. Lewinn's has been offering real, effective results for specific skin aging concerns to Australians for more than 25 years, and is now available in Malaysia for the first time.

Dr.Lewinn's Essentials Purifying Toner
Dr.Lewinn's Essentials Purifying Toner
An alcohol-free, aloe-based toner that removes residue makeup and oils and assists in refining pores, leaving skin soft, smooth and refreshed.

Minimises Pores & Excess Oil. Contains Glycolic Acid.
Recommended for combination skin.

Directions:
Apply to thoroughly cleansed face and neck using a cotton pad. Pay special attention to the T-zone area. Pat dry. Use morning and night

Ingredients:
Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Propylene Glycol, Polysorbate 20, Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol, Sorbic Acid, Glycolic Acid, RetinylPalmitate (Vit. A), Parfum (Benzoyl Benzoate, Citronellol, Coumarin, Limonene, Geraniol, Hexyl Cinnamal, Linalool), CI 16035.

Dr.Lewinn's Essentials Purifying Toner has great nice ingredients that include vitamin A, AHA. It uses Sorbic, Acid Phenoxyethanolas and  Propylene Glycol as preservative .  Caprylyl Glycol is a skin conditioning agent.  The fragrance blends are from plants.  CI 16035 is actually the red colouring in the bottle.

It is a dermatologist grade toner so there isn't any fragrance so the smell is a blend of all the ingredients. It smells faintly of dried jasmine flower. It disappeared fast once it dried so no worries.

Dr.Lewinn's Essentials Purifying Toner is clear pink watery liquid. It does absorb into my skin fast and my other skincare does feel easier to apply.  Since the first ingredient is aloe vera, the toner is really gentle and I do not experienced overexfoliation during my usage of this toner.  It doesn't immediately make my skin amazing but it does help with keeping my skin hydrated with better skin texture. The PH is around 5-6 which slightly acidic so I think sensitive skin can use this too.

You do need to use it with other products to get better results in terms of exfoliation or getting rid of rough skin texture.

Overall, Dr.Lewinn's Essentials Purifying Toner is an aloe vera based hydrating toner medical grade toner for combination skin, looking for dermatologist products for anti ageing and gentle on the skin.

Hi,

This hot internet sensation, COSRX brand has even been mentioned in Korean beauty shows such as Get it Beauty and is highly raved by many beauty youtubers and bloggers😎.

I know, I know that my review COSRX One step Pimple Clear Pad is probably just going to be buried under all the millions of review out there😅.

Still, if you are interested in what I think of this hyped up brand,  here is the review of the COSRX One Step Pimple Clear Pad that promised clear skin.  I got it from the Wishtrend Cosrx Silky Skin texture package.

COSRX One Step Pimple Clear Pad is the star product of COSRX.  Some even said it get rid of acne overnight but of course you aren't getting that kind of rave from me 😊.

So, here is what I think.  The packages does look like the dupe of Stridex but since I haven't tried Stridex before so I have no idea how it compares to Stridex. Anyhow, here is what I think of this product after using it for 3 weeks.

The jar is sure way bigger than cotton pads probably to make it easier to take out the products. It would be better if there is a tweezer to take the product out than rather with just plain fingers since it can contaminate the products😵.

COSRX One Step Pimple Clear Pad comes with 70 sheets of cotton pads. The cotton pads has an embossed side and a soft side (non embossed) side.  Both of the side comes with different features

 Embossed side-  Exfoliates / Regulates sebum production / Removes impurities
Smooth side-  Hydrates / Promotes smoother skin / Improves facial skin texture

Personally I feel both of them are the same except that the embossed side exfoliate the skin better as I can see some dirt on that side.  Not sure about the smooth side claiming to hydrates my skin since I think the ingredients those pads soaked in is the same😶.

COSRX One Step Pimple Clear Pad smells of light orange peel which is one of the ingredients inside the solution soaked so no added fragrance in there.  As for the ingredients the first ingredients is the Salix Alba (Willow) Bark Water which provides the cleansing, regulates sebum, reduces inflammation of acne prone skin.  Salix Alba Willow Water is actually very gentle so for people who are used to strong AHA, BHA, peels or other acne products will not feel or see any difference in using this product😎.

Other ingredients that helps to calm down acne is Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Oil.  There is Sodium Hydroxide, Sodium Hyaluronate, Panthenol which is hydrating to the skin so it is also suitable for dry skin type.

There is Allantoin present which is an ingredients that is part of anti aging products and thus using this products will help condition the skin to be 'younger'😍.

As for the effect on my skin, I have actually finish the whole jar of Cosrx One Step Pimple Clear Pad and I think it is gentle.  It is not really making my acne disappeared overnight(I have really stubborn acne skin ) but it does reduce the severity of my acne and make the pimples come to a head faster.  I do need to combine this Cosrx Pimple Clear Pad with other products. Personally I use it as toner to clean my skin and prepare my skin for other skincare products.

Overall, COSRX One Step Pimple Clear Pad is a gentle exfoliation products for skin types that is dull, acne prone, dry and have never tried other strong prescription acne products.  However, it is best not to scrub the skin too hard with the pads as frequent hard friction can cause sensitivity and redness.

If you are already trying prescription products such as tretinoin and loving those, I think you will probably just find this 'meh' (meaning nothing great) or it won't do a thing on your skin.
