Edelweiss: Bringing The Freshness of The Alps to Malaysia

Heineken Malaysia Berhad (HEINEKEN Malaysia) has launched the latest addition to its portfolio of award-winning beers and ciders – the premium wheat beer Edelweiss. Born in the Alps and made with all-natural mountain ingredients, Edelweiss is now available across Peninsular Malaysia in bottles, cans and on draught.
Easy-to-drink with a refreshing finish and a subtle, fruity aftertaste, Edelweiss is a smooth wheat beer with a golden hue and a natural cloudiness. It is available fresh on draught in selected bars and restaurants, using the unique and innovative Edelweiss Blade draught machine. Stylish and beautifully-designed, the new Edelweiss Blade machine is a countertop draught dispenser which serves Edelweiss at a crisp Alpine temperature of 2°C.
Edelweiss is also available in 330ml bottles and new, ‘sleek’ 330ml cans. Taller and more slender than a traditional beer can, the Edelweiss sleek can’s fresh modern look reflects the Alpine spirit of one of Europe’s best-loved wheat beers.

Edelweiss’ brand position, Feel the Alps, is a further nod to Edelweiss’ authentic origins. The product aims to give beer drinkers a taste of the freedom, excitement and playfulness of life on the Alps - from the subtle fruit and floral notes, evoking feelings of walking through lush mountain valleys, to a smooth, cool finish like freshly-fallen snow.
Edelweiss offers a fresh, contemporary twist to a centuries-old wheat beer. Born in the snow-capped heights of Austrian Alps, near the city of Salzburg, Edelweiss’ traditional heritage can be traced back to the 17th century. It remains one of Europe’s best-loved wheat beers, and has found countless fans throughout Asia among drinkers seeking an exciting new taste experience.'''''

Maintain Total Oral Health with Listerine® as You Enjoy Mouth-watering Local Delicacies

Malaysians love their food and the list is endless when it comes to the selection of local mouth-watering delicacies, some of which can be pungent-smelling or strong-tasting. One of the most iconic local food is the durian, also known as the “King of Fruits”. This unique tropical fruit has a distinctive aroma and taste that is well-loved by many. However, despite our love for the majestic durian, there are some major problems it can cause to our mouth – the most common being bad breath, which is hard to remove right after a durian feast, even if you brush your teeth!
While most Malaysians are brought up with the hygiene practice of brushing our teeth twice a day, the scientific truth is brushing alone cleanses only 25%* of our mouth! It is also not enough to keep the whole mouth clean because brushing misses the spaces between the teeth, as well as the areas below the gum line. As a result, bacteria pools on the tongue and insides of the cheeks, which over time, can lead to oral problems like bad breath, plaque and gum problems.
To remind Malaysians to keep their whole mouth clean as they continue to enjoy local delicacies like the durian, Listerine® is collaborating with Watsons Malaysia to run the Top Spenders Contest starting 25 May to 30 June 2021! Winners of this exciting contest will win a total of 105 kilos of durian and still be able to keep their breath fresh with the household mouthwash brand!

Stephen Tiu, Country Director, Consumer Health of Johnson & Johnson Malaysia and Singapore, shared, “Despite the smell that stays in our mouth for hours after consumption, we still do not hesitate to enjoy durian whenever it is in season. Listerine® is a daily mouthwash brand approved by Malaysian Dental Association (MDA), we encourage Malaysians to keep their whole mouth clean and their breath fresh constantly with Listerine®’s powerful oral defense that penetrates where conventional brushing cannot, effectively killing 99.9%** of germs in the mouth. At the same time, it helps to strengthen gums and teeth, as well as lessen the formation of plaque, so that we can continue to savour all the delicious food in Malaysia.”
Listerine® and Watsons Malaysia encourage durian lovers to continue to enjoy the King of Fruits and keep their breath fresh this year by joining the Top Spenders Contest in three easy steps:

Plant Origins Diffuser, Essential Oil & Personal Care for Better Sleep & Health

As a beauty blogger, I am obsessed with self care and holistic wellness. I believe that to truly achieve optimal wellness in the physical, mental, and spiritual sense we have to be viewing and supporting the body as the incredible system it is. Essential oil was known to have both physical and psychological benefits since ancient Egypt. Therefore, I have been using essential oil for aromatherapy purpose for many years now.
I used to burn essential oils in oil burner in early years. However, I can't stand the smoke of the candle one day hence I stopped using it. I am glad I found Plant Origins, a essential oils & personal care brand by Signature Market Malaysia. Let's look into their new products and packaging below;

Plant Origins Aromatherapy Bluetooth Diffuser (500ml | Promo Price RM 129.90)

Plant Origins Aromatherapy Bluetooth Diffuser is customized with LED lights, and works as a Bluetooth speaker too. The sleek design creates a spa-like home effortlessly.
I like the big capacity of it. It can produce mist for up to 13 hours on a full tank of water so you can wake up with radiant, hydrated skin. The atomizing particles help to neutralize dust, germs and other dirty air particles in the air, particularly when it’s hazy season. Thus, the diffuser’s constant stream of moisturizing air reduces the likelihood of illnesses caused by stale air circulating around the room and helps eliminate static. Fans of mist sprays for skin moisturizing will also appreciate the extra hydration the mist imparts to your skin and eyes. No more worries about having dry, itchy eyes, cracked lips or painfully dry skin.
NOTE: This package includes one unit of Plant Origins Aromatherapy Bluetooth Diffuser, a UK 3-pin plug, measuring cup and remote.

Hada Labo ‘We Care Society’ Campaign Raises RM50,000 for The Underprivileged Community

My favourite Japanese Skincare brand, Hada Labo in collaboration with Women of Will (WOW) & Watsons have successfully raised RM50,000 for its month-long ‘We Care Societycampaign. The campaign, which was launched in conjunction with the Raya celebration earlier in May, was aimed at supporting the underprivileged women with baking skills and confidence to succeed and thrive in their businesses and livelihoods within their communities.
Through the campaign this year, 30 women from selected B40 communities were offered training in baking as a way to upskill them. A total of 40,000 cookies were baked, which were then distributed to 300 families from 3 People’s Housing Projects in the Klang Valley, namely PPR Batu Muda, PPR Pekan Batu and PPR Beringin.

The selected B40 women bakers, who have a household income of less than RM2,500 are currently residing in the Batu Muda People’s Housing Project located in Jalan Ipoh, Sentul.
Rhoto-Mentholatum General Manager Lim Mei Yuen said she is glad that the campaign was a success and she thanked the public for their generous support for Hada Labo in spreading joy and love to the underpriveileged community during the Raya celebration. “Hada Labo’s We Care for Society is one of the brand’s initiatives to look out for one another especially during the Covid-19 pandemic. As one of the leading skincare brands for the past decade, we believe in doing things that matter to make a difference in the lives of those we serve, and this includes supporting the underprivileged women so that they can eventually be financially independent,” said Lim.

Low Prices Locked To Stay Low by Guardian Malaysia

Guardian Malaysia has launched a nation-wide initiative to lower and lock the prices of 1,500 items of health, beauty and personal care essentials to cushion the impact of financial challenges brought about by the pandemic on the end of May 2021.

The prices of these items have been lowered and will remain unchanged for the rest of the year so that customers need not have to visit multiple places for great deals, said Soren Lauridsen, CEO of Guardian South East Asia (Guardian SEA), as well as Guardian Health And Beauty Sdn Bhd (Guardian Malaysia).
He said: “We have listened closely to our customers and what they look for, especially following the onset of the pandemic and decided to support them by locking the low prices of 1,500 essentials to protect from price fluctuations.

The “Low Prices Locked To Stay Low” initiative is a regional effort by Guardian SEA and underscores the Group’s commitment to ensure prices of daily essentials such as bath, hair care, personal hygiene, vitamins and supplements remain affordable during this challenging time when customers are increasingly looking to stretch their dollar.
“Our customers throughout the country, including those who prefer to buy online, can enjoy these affordable prices and great value, every day for the rest of the year. We believe our customers will appreciate this form of support in this highly uncertain environment,” he added.

Lauridsen said the selection of products is based on Guardian’s research on customer buying behaviour and preferences. It reflects what they buy most often, such as Dove and Pantene shampoo, Darlie toothpaste and Panadal Actifast.

“Our customers also indicated that affordability is a priority, which is the focus of our initiative,” he added.

Reflecting the findings of the research, and given the current deep concerns over healthcare, a total of 35% of the items are health essentials, carefully selected to make them even more affordable.
In the current climate, Guardian observed a growth in demand for Guardian’s own brand products because of its attractive price range and trusted quality. As such prices of all Guardian Brand products have also been lowered and locked in this initiative.

The Best Vegan Lipstick

Many people that I know are going Vegan. It's a good sign for the environment, health and ethical. For me, I have switched to Vegan and natural skincare and cosmetics products because they are ethical, which means it doesn't test on lovely animals and it doesn't contain any animal-by-products. That way, we feel beautiful inside out while also saving our environment.
Introducing the best vegan cosmetics brand that I have been using for years - Orkid Cosmetics, a proud Malaysian brand that is also HALAL and cruelty-free. I discovered Orkid Cosmetics many years ago in a beauty event as a beauty blogger. Once I gave their vegan lipstick a try, I felt in love immediately. Not only the colors of the lipstick is pigmented, the creamy texture glides on smoothly on my lips.
This time, I have purchased their New Matte Suede Liquid Lipstick. This highly pigmented lipstick gives off a matte finish which covers the lips in a non-transferable intense colour payoff. Formulated with Vitamin E so it also moisturizes the lips. The lipstick doesn't smudge, Non-sticky, Glides on smoothly, Non-transferable, Lasts for up to 4 hours without oily food intake, Breathable and light-weight on the lips, Halal so it's wudu' friendly, Non-toxic and safe for skin, Doesn't contain fragrances, Made with high-quality halal and vegan ingredients imported from Japan & Europe, GMP, KKM & HALAL (JAKIM) Certified and most importantly, it is made with Six-free formula meaning it contains NO: parabens, mineral oil, DBP (also known as phthalates), triclosan, sodium lauryl sulfate or gluten.
