Skincare Review: The Face Shop’s Yehwadam Revitalising Serum and Snow Lotus Pearl Capsule

The Face Shop - Yehwadam - Review - Skin Care - Anti Ageing

This year’s first skin care review goes to two new products from The Face Shop that have floored me. Like I said a couple of posts ago, I would be a little more picky when it comes to what I feature on this space so as to give you guys more curated content and I think these new products are a good way to start that new policy.

So The Face Shop recently came out with a new range called Yehwadam and I was able to try their Revitalising Serum and the Snow Lotus Brightening Pearl Capsule Cream. Both are great if you’re looking into adding some oomph into your night time routine – especially on the anti-ageing department.

It’s literally a few days from Christmas and I feel like an exhausted elf working in the North Pole. While buying gifts and wrapping them are fun, I have to admit that it can really take its toll on me, physically. In fact, I’m typing this at 1:30 in the morning after finishing up another batch of gifts.

However, I just know that I had to log in real quick here to share with you some good news. The Body Shop here in Malaysia has launched an online shopping app! You know what this means, right? You can now shop for your favourite shower gels and body butters on the go!

Skin & Hair Care: Tansan Magic’s Soda Spa Foam and Sparkling Gelee (Review + Contest)

Tansan-Magic-Spa-Foam-Sparkling-Gelee-Review

As somebody who often writes about beauty, I get approached to try out new products quite often. To be honest, nothing much surprises or even piques my interest these days as things tend to get a bit repetitive in the beauty scene.

There, I said it.

Quite a number of times, I’ve encountered products that seem promising but end up being gimmicky – much to my disappointment. So I end up not writing about them because they’re just a waste of time and effort.

Recently, however, I got to know of Japanese beauty company Tansan Magic. At first, I was quite reluctant due to my said experience with some gimmicky products these past few months that left me in a beauty rut. But knowing that the Japanese do beauty products  and treatments really well, I thought of giving it a go.

I was sent the Soda Spa Foam and the Sparkling Gelee – two products that you can use both on your skin and hair to make them squeaky clean and hydrated. Just two of the things I truly need on a daily basis.

Beauty + Skin Care: The Therapy Range by The Face Shop (Review)

Hello, blog! I’ve missed you! Do you still remember your owner? 😭  Goodness, I feel like such a bad mother abandoning this space just like that for a few weeks.

Life happened again. Surprise, surprise. I am notorious when it comes to spreading myself too thin and it’s my blog that usually suffers first. My apologies, blog. Mommy loves you! I’ve been away cos of all my work as a freelancer (did you read my Forbes article on Vivy Yusof yet?) and because of something exciting that my friends and I are working on. 🙊You guys may get news of what it is by tomorrow so do stay tuned. 😉

But wait! This blogpost’s purpose is not about me making excuses! (Even though I start most of my posts with that.) It is, however, about something that’s also quite exciting as well – but we’re gonna be hopping off to the skin care department for this one. 😉

I’m here today to talk about The Face Shop‘s latest offerings for people like me who are deathly afraid of premature skin ageing. I’m now in my late 20s and the big 3-o is coming in just a couple of years. Before I hit that age, I would like to be fully prepared, thank you very much! Enter – The Therapy range!
