Review: Dr.Jart+ Dis-A-Pore Beauty Balm

Ever since I start working, I seldom go out with bare face. However, I feel that applying foundation everyday is a bit harsh to my skin and it clogs my pores badly. Thanks to the invention of BB cream, I am using it almost every day now because it does not clog my pores and it has the benefits of skincare plus makeup. As we know most of the BB Cream comes with sun protection and gives us the natural finishes.
As a BB cream lover, I’m sure most of you have heard of Dr.Jart+ before. In fact, Dr.Jart+ is known as the BB expert brand in Worldwide. I have tried and amazed with their BB Cushion before, and I am happy to try their newly introduced prestige BB Cream - Dr.Jart+ Dis-A-Pore Beauty Balm recently.
Dr.Jart+ Dis-A-Pore Beauty Balm is a multi-function sunscreen, which provide Broad spectrum SPF30/PA+++ sun protection. Thanks to its Complex pore care formula, it has a creamy texture that covers pores with one touch.
As you can see from the picture below, it covers my large pores, pigment, and redness completely. My skin looks more even and fair after application. It gives me the flawless coverage and silky smooth Photoshop finish just like a foundation does. Plus my skin doesn’t feel heavy nor greasy at all.
No doubt it is giving me 5 stars coverage. It provides soft application with high coverage to cover blemishes, pores and fine wrinkles.
It contains the ingredients to control sebum and minimize pores below;

Herbal complex of peppermint, apple mint, rosemary, chamomile, lavender, jasmine, ylang-ylang, and hibiscus that control sebum, tighten pore, soothing skin.
Argatensyl which is extracted from Argan oil to tighten pores.
Rose fruit extract to tightening and diminishing pores.
Nordenau water from the ‘magical’ Nordenau springs in Germany for skin rejuvenating and moisturising.

How to use Dr.Jart+ Dis-A-Pore Beauty Balm?

Apply adequate amount on the entire face after skincare and spread evenly with soft patting.
A little goes a long way, I normally use only pea size for my whole face and neck. I like that my fresh look last for hours, though I have to touch up after 4 to 5 hours.

More than 500 Magnum lanterns were given-away before the event commenced for shoppers to join in the meaningful parade. The event was broadcasted live by MELODY FM Radio Station and the crowd was entertained by the special appearances of MELODY FM announcers Wan Wai Fun and Dragon Loong.

Hide No More. Be Skin Confident with Bio-Oil

Bio-Oil is no stranger to me and many pregnant woman and those who have gave birth before. It is my all-time favourite skincare oil during my entire pregnancy, postpartum and even normal days now. In fact, Bio-Oil is specialist skincare oil that helps improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks and uneven skin tone. Since its global launch in 2002, Bio-Oil has won 222 skincare awards and has become the No.1 selling scar and stretch mark product in 18 countries, including Malaysia.
For most of us, we will have scars or stretch marks that have developed over the course of time due to cuts, acne, post-operation, burn incidents, pregnancy, or rapid weight gain/loss. These skin imperfections can have a profound effect on us, particularly if they are highly visible. This can shake your self-image, leading to a lack of self-confidence, a feeling of anxiety and a constant urge to hide these skin imperfections on your body. This lowered self-confidence can affect an individual’s life.
“The desire to encourage confidence in women & men is at the core of this new campaign. Many find that improving the appearance of scars and stretch marks can make them feel more confident. Applying a topical oil such as Bio-Oil, helps improve these skin imperfections that have made them feel insecure, which, in turn, can build up an individual’s inner confidence,” says Ms Low Hooi Wan, Division Manager of Nuvanta Sdn. Bhd., distributor of Bio-Oil in Malaysia.  
Life is easier to traverse when you genuinely feel confident. Self-confidence is a feeling of being comfortable in your own skin, an understanding and acceptance of your strengths and weaknesses, and embracing your uniqueness. And the skin being our largest organ, plays a paramount role towards our self-image and self-confidence.

Applying a topical product such as Bio-Oil on the scars can help reduce its appearance and colour, thereby reducing the need to cover up.
According to a recent clinical study conducted on Bio-Oil, 92% of subjects showed an improvement in the appearance of their scars after 8 weeks. Bio-Oil helps reduce the possibility of stretch marks forming during pregnancy, teenage growth spurts and periods of rapid weight gain, as well as helps improve the appearance of existing stretch marks. A clinical study revealed that 100% of subjects showed an improvement in the appearance of existing stretch marks after applying Bio-Oil for 8 weeks.
Bio-Oil’s unique formulation, which contains the breakthrough ingredient PurCellin OilTM, ensures that the active ingredients are rapidly absorbed into the skin, without leaving an oily residue. Its formulation consists of vitamins A & E, and natural plant oils – Lavender, Calendula, Rosemary and Chamomile. Hence it is really pleasant to use it, day or night.

Get to Know The Future of Skincare at KOSÉ SkinTech 2015

As a beauty blogger, I always wanted to learn more on the latest and future skincare technology to keep myself updated and keep youthful. I was blessed that I got to discover the future of skincare at KOSÉ SkinTech 2015 which was happened at Majestic Hotel, Kuala Lumpur on a lovely morning back in August 2015. Let me share you what have I learnt on the KOSÉ SkinTech 2015 shall we?
KOSÉ SkinTech 2015 – The Future of Skincare is a seminar that explicates the latest science in treatment serum and whitening skincare from KOSÉ Corporation, Japan. Indeed, since the creation of the company in 1946, KOSÉ Corporation has become one of the most innovative beauty companies. From humble beginnings in Japan, the company has grown to reach millions of women in 17 countries around the world, with 25 core brands like SEKKISEI, INIFINITY KOSÉ and COSME DECORTE, ranging from self-selection brands found in drugstores and pharmacies, to prestige and high prestige brands that retail at counters and stores where customers experience the full service and treatment.

For decades, KOSÉ Corporation has been working passionately to search for the essence of beauty. It has been producing innovative skincare products based on extensive research, using a combination of nature and science to produce unsurpassed results.
Year 2015 marks the start of an exciting future for KOSÉ Corporation as the company unveils the inspiring tale of innovation behind two new key products from its most well-loved prestigious brands INFINITY KOSÉ and COSME DECORTE.
Thanks to a unique fermentation (bio-technology) method, KOSÉ is able to obtain 100% pure Kojic Acid, a type of naturally-sourced substance that has smaller molecules than general whitening agents, and is therefore able to penetrate into skin more effectively.
Akinobu Hayashi, General Manager, Advanced Cosmetic Research Laboratories in KOSÉ Corporation, explained how Kojic Acid works on the skin to lighten dark spots during the seminar. “Pigmentation occurs due to a few reasons: UV exposure, inflammation, hormonal changes, stress, visceral imbalance and also genes. As a result of these ‘aggravations’, we get dark spots, age spots, freckles and inflammatory scars.”
Mr. Masaaki Hara; Managing Director of KOSE Malaysia

“These dark spots are caused by the effects of Tyrosinase, which contains copper ions. When our skin is exposed to UV rays, the copper ions send messages to the Tyrosinase to start working, resulting in melanin production and pigmentation. Kojic Acid works effectively on dark spots by ‘circumcising’ the copper ions so that they fail to activate the Tyrosinase. This allows Kojic Acid to control the action of Tyrosinase, thus preventing melanin production. Kojic Acid is found to be effective in controlling and lightening the four main types of pigmentation I mentioned earlier,” he continued.
Introducing the latest KOSÉ whitening beauty products that have incorporated with Kojic Acid - INFINITY KOSÉ Realizing White Stick XX and Whitelogist MX.
