From spring … to skin! Vanity Trove Malaysia x Avene Beauty Blogger Workshop + Giveaway!

I had the privilege to attend my first Avene workshop on a lovely Saturday last month, thanks to Vanity Trove Malaysia. I’ve found out more about Avène as well as experienced the benefits of famous Avene Thermal Spring Water.
Avène Thermal Spring Water is the key factor in the treatment given at Avène Dermatological Hydrotherapy Centre.
The fine crystals in Avène Thermal Spring Water mean that it is particularly soft and suitable for highly sensitive skins. Thermal spring waters with different mineral contents procure different skin sensations. The mineral content leads to a decrease in the water/skin interface, improving spreadability. The exchange surface with the outside environment is increased and so is the evaporation rate. Due to its low mineral content, Avène Thermal Spring Water provides greater skin comfort and suppleness.

Avène Thermal Spring Water is an active ingredient in its own right. Since 1975, when the spring was taken over by Laboratoires Pierre Fabre, it has been the subject of numerous analyses and studies. Avène Thermal Spring Water is characterised by its unique composition which has remained constant over a period of many years.

Avène Thermal Spring Water is bacteriologically pure, with a low mineral content, and has a large variety of anions, cations and trace elements. Its calcium/magnesium ratio, equal to two, makes it unique among dermatological spring waters and no doubt explains its beneficial effect on scarring.

By collecting the water directly at the source, transport is avoided and the water retains its original properties: soothing, anti-irritant and softening.

For Natural Green Tea Freshness Breath Throughout The Day!

Improve oral health during Ramadan and Hari Raya Puasa with Listerine® Natural Green Tea mouthwash.

During the Ramadan month, fasting for long hours without food or drink can cause stale breath. Keep your breath fresh and prevent cavities throughout this period by gargling with Listerine® Natural Green Tea mouthwash before and after sahur. Listerine® Natural Green Tea mouthwash contains essential oils with proven antimicrobial effects, together with a double dose of fluoride to help ward off cavities.
Listerine® Natural Green Tea mouthwash is enriched with a mild green tea flavour and contains 2 times* more fluoride to protect teeth from cavities. Flouride is known to prevent tooth decay, while enhancing the resistance of enamel towards erosion (due to acid exposure such as consumption of high-sugar sweets or drinks). It also boosts re-mineralisation, and helps to kill the plaque bacteria that constantly form on the surface of our teeth.

The new flavour also contains all the oral goodness of green tea. Researchers have discovered green tea’s astounding ability to prevent cavities and dental damage. A powerful antioxidant called catechin inhibits bacterial activity, while tannin prevents plaque build-up.
In fact, recent studies have shown that 90% of Malaysians still suffer from tooth decay, even though they brush their teeth daily. Frequent sugar consumption and a carbohydrate-rich diet also contribute to tooth decay. However, that doesn’t mean you have to totally skip your favourite foods during Ramadan and Hari Raya Puasa. You can consume them in moderation, but do remember to rinse with mouthwash after brushing your teeth before and after sahur to remove traces of bacteria that might have been missed.

Listerine® Natural Green Tea mouthwash contains a combination of twice the amount of fluoride plus the natural goodness of green tea for a refreshing experience. The long-lasting effect helps breath stay fresh for hours,” says Vaibhav Saran, General Manager of Johnson & Johnson Malaysia & Singapore.

K-Palette Workshop & Latest Japan Makeup Trend

Last month end I’ve attended K-Palette Workshop with the invitation from Manoah Consulting, thanks to Don and Yukiko. I again have forgotten to bring camera, and I realized that while I was on the way there, hence I was late due to turning back to home to take the camera. Really sorry to all people for the waiting.
The workshop started with welcoming note from President of K-Palette Japan – Mr. Kinoshita.
Ms. Inagaki, a Japanese Makeup Artist with 15 years experience was the makeup tutor for the workshop.
While Mr. Kenta Suzuki helped to translate Japanese into English for us.

Ms. Inagaki told us that there’s 2 types of look - Cool and Cute look. I am belong to Cool category.
First of all, we apply BB cream start from inside to outside for more 3D look, and then use sponge to blend it well. The BB cream is available in two colors, color 1 for light skin tone and 2 for natural skin tone. A little bit like 20 cents size is enough for whole face.
Then, apply Zero Kuma Concealer by squeeze a small amount and blend with fingertips using a light, patting motion. You could use a finger to apply and another clean finger to spread evenly. I like Zero Kuma Concealer because it has very good coverage yet it’s moisturize my skin.
