Neutrogena® Deep Clean® Foaming Cleanser

An urban lifestyle has its pros and cons, but when it comes to our skin’s health, the disadvantages outweigh the advantages. Living in the city exposes our skin to a non-stop barrage of external aggressors, one of the most serious being air pollution.

Common sources of air pollution include diesel or petrol-powered vehicles, power plants and open fires. Even indoors, we are not safe from the dangers of air pollution: smoking, gas stoves, paint fumes and household cleaning products also contribute to the worrying condition of air cleanliness.
^ based on clinical efficacy study on PM 2.5 particles

Did you know – pollution affects a staggering 80% of urbanites! And because of constant exposure to this poor-quality air filled with micro-pollutants, our skin experiences 60% moisture loss after just 7 days!

One of the most concerning pollutants with skin-damaging effects is Particulate Matter (PM). Research has shown that any PM with a diameter of 10 microns or less (≤ PM10) can penetrate through the skin, causing serious health issues, and one of the biggest skin’s enemies within this range is PM2.5.

Collagen is an important supplement to keep us aged gracefully and keeps youthful. As a beauty junkie, I’ve been consuming collagen for years.

Lennox believes that everyone deserves to be healthy and beautiful. Hence the brand has launched many different types of Collagen for different needs. They are listed below;

Their unique powder + liquid formula ensures that total freshness and effectiveness of the ingredients are preserved. The antioxidants use are in powder form because LENNOX knows that antioxidants in liquid form are easily oxidized even if they remain sealed and unopened.

With LENNOX FirmUp+, you can fully benefit from the effectiveness of antioxidants because you add them in right before consuming.

LENNOX FirmUp+ Men (To Fight Oily Skin)
According to research, men’s skin is 15%-20% thicker than women’s skin. Therefore, compared to external skin products, health drinks are more effectively absorbed for healthy skin.

LENNOX FirmUp+ Men is specially formulated for men who lead busy lives and are looking for a fuss-free skin regime that works.

Makeup lovers in South East Asia would have heard of Obsess Cosmetics before. Dubbed as Malaysia's No. 1 Cosmetic Products, Obsess Cosmetics was founded back in 2016 by the young and pretty Harizatul Atikah. Today, Obsess Cosmetics has reached a great milestone, congratulations! I was honoured to be invited to join and witness the happening Obsess Cosmetics Makeup Party held at Lightbox, Sungai Buloh on 24 Aug 2019.
There, I got to meet the founder and the supporting team behind Obsess Cosmetics as well as a lot of beauty enthusiasts. Everyone dressed up really well to enjoy a happening and fun noon together. There was plenty of activities lined-up throughout the event. Special thanks to the team for their thoughtful planning on the Obsess Cosmetics Makeup Party.
It was my first time encountering Obsess Cosmetics products but I fell in love with them immediately. From the cute and sweet packaging, to the unique formulas used in the makeup artistry, Obsess Cosmetics is suitable for every modern ladies.
Obsess Cosmetics has launched their latest Treatment Cushion Foundation at the event. I have also brought it home to give it a try. Comes in light and medium shades, I have chosen the light shade which is more suitable for fairer skin. The striking pink packaging cushion foundation gives me a full coverage with just a few dab. The texture is just nice to cover my open pores and acne while also feel comfortable and light on skin. What I like the most was, even though I am having oily combination skin, it stays on my skin well while also controlling the oil sebum. It last on my skin for more than 7 hours without needed to touch up! So amazing.

[Review] Murad City Skin Age Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 50 PA++++

Malaysia weather is killing me lately, with hot climate of temperature soaring above 35°C. During this time of the year, we perspire more, the heat starts to affect our mood and our skin feels burnt when we are outdoors or working out. In a recent news report, the Meteorological Department has warned the public that the level of ultraviolet (UV) radiation is at its extreme high and it could reach up to an index reading of 15 in the afternoon on a clear day. Any reading above 11 is considered as extreme, according to the international standard measurement of the level of UV radiation exposure. Before it takes a toll on you, shield yourself from the strong UV rays and the scorching heat. Get your UV shields ready before you step out and expose yourself to the sun and heat.
What are UV shields? Among some of the common UV shields would include an umbrella, a broad rim hat, ultra-thin jacket with UV protection, UV sleeves, sunglasses, and sunblock is extremely important for summer and a hot climate such as ours to ensure that skin remains bright and flawless.
I have recently came across Murad City Skin Age Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 50 PA++++. It is the best mineral sunscreen I have ever used. A new level of skin protection. Ultra-light 100% mineral sunscreen with Environmental Protection Technology shields skin from 5 main causes of damage that accelerate signs of aging: UVA, UVB, pollution, blue light from devices, and infrared radiation. A polymer matrix helps inhibit adhesion and penetration of toxins. Color-correcting tint evens tone and boosts radiance.
Good for all skin types, from Normal, Oily, Combination, Dry to Sensitive. It contains Lutein - Antioxidant; enhances protection by helping to defend against blue light; Iron Oxides - Help protect skin from infrared radiation; color corrects to even tone; Polymer Matrix - Acts like a breathable “second skin” and blocks adhesion and penetration of toxic pollutants; and Zinc Oxide & Titanium Oxide - Highly effective UV filters that provide mineral broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection.

A Face and Body Cleanser for Every Skin-Type - Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser

Do you know that our skin type could change from time to time? For example, I used to have oily combination skin in my teenage years, and my skin has turned to dry and mild sensitive when my age is catching up. It was an uneasy change for me as I had to change my skincare products due to this.
Thanks to a friend's recommendation, I found that we don't necessary change our daily skin cleanser, but to just use a gentle cleanser - Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser. This cleanser can be used on the face and body and is suitable for all skin types. This is my first time trying Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser, despite hearing a lot of raves about it. I heard that it was originally formulated and recommended by dermatologists, specifically for everyday cleansing of even the most sensitive skin.
When I checked it out at the pharmacy, I read the label and I like what I see. It is written that the Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser is a soap-free and fragrance-free formulation that means it is will help gently clean and moisturise the skin without stripping it’s natural oils. The cleanser comes in a few sizes, and I have chosen the 500ml one because it comes with a convenient pump bottle that can be opened and closed anytime by twisting the top of the pump.
Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser is a transparent gel cleanser that works gently yet effectively to remove impurities from skin. It could be used in several ways, with or without water as below;

For use without water: Apply a liberal amount of cleanser to the skin and rub gently. Remove excess with a soft cloth, leaving a thin film on the skin.

For use with water: Apply cleanser to the skin and rub gently. Rinse.
