Beauty + Video: Huge Althea Haul + Christmas Promos

Christmas is just around the corner – and mine actually came early this year after I’ve accumulated quite a number of stuff from Althea in the weeks leading up to the holidays!

Also, for those that have been so curious over the W.Lab Shading and Highlighter sticks that I posted on Instagram and Facebook, I swatched them and gave my first impressions on this video! You’ll just have to watch it through the end though. 😉

Happy Holidays, my loves!

Beauty + Video: Guerisson 9-Complex Horse Oil Cream + Unboxing, Real vs Fake, First Impressions

I’m on a roll with videos this week! 😀 I have so much backlog that I’m trying to post as much content as I could before the husband comes home from another work trip! 😉

Today’s video is about the much-raved about Guerisson 9-Complex Horse Oil Cream!

But before you start giving me violent reactions, let me just put this out there: I am an animal lover! I was told that Guerisson uses horse oil from Germany which is extracted only from the base of the horse’s main and that these beautiful creatures are not harmed in any way for beauty! So we’re all good!

So here’s an unboxing video where I’ll be going through the features of the packaging. This should be helpful to people who are looking into getting this product as there are a lot of fakes out there! Enjoy! :-*

More later!

Love,

Beauty: Korean Skin Care Brand Belif Opens First Store in Malaysia

For someone who never really dabbled with anything Korean before moving to Kuala Lumpur for our first posting, the recent effect of the Korean wave on me is just crazy.

From skin care, to makeup, and even on our television. It’s starting to hit me pretty hard albeit quite late. But you know what they say – better late than never!

My friends here in Malaysia even introduced me to K-Drama – something I ignored as I never imagined I would like it. And here I am, all done with My Love From Another Star in just a little over 2 days of marathon-watching. (Don’t ask what time I slept last night. LOL.)

The Korean influence is even stronger in Filipinos back home, I must say. (K-Pop has a very big and quite loud fan base there) However, it’s here in Kuala Lumpur – where their products are much more accessible – that I decided to really open my door to it. Not that I refused to like it before. I was just used to sticking to my overly-Western preferences and I thought that everything about it was too cutesy (from their beauty products’ packaging to the way their actresses behaved) for me.

But now, after trying out their skin care, makeup, and even their drama shows, I actually have more variety in my life. Don’t expect me to act cutesy and do baby-talk in public like Korean actresses do or blast K-Pop in the car, though. I seriously doubt that that image would suit me and my in-between-features the way it looks good on my friends who actually do look Asian.

And speaking of Korea and everything that’s so awesome from their country, another Korean skin care brand decided to set up shop in Malaysia. Woohoo! I’m pretty sure we don’t have it in Manila – yet. But I’m hoping they open there soon as well as I am sure they will be as big of a hit there as in KL.

Belif is a skin care brand that marries apothecary traditions and cutting-edge Korean skin care technology. Their first store in Malaysia is located in Sunway Pyramid Mall and I fell in love with the interior right away.

Beauty + Events + First Impressions: Pure Beauty Launches Youth Restore Range

Ageing gracefully is something I aim for. Almost everyone who knows me personally have been treated, at least once, with a very long and passionate lecture on how we should start taking care of our skin early on.

I’m 25 and we all know that’s the age where the skin and the hair start to age and get easily damaged. And I’m all for damage control, ladies. 😉 That’s why, if you’ve been following this blog, you might have noticed how often I test and write about moisturisers and anti-ageing products. We’re all gonna age at some point, but I’d like to keep looking just a wee bit younger than my actual age and to keep my skin healthy by using the products that are available to me. It’s doable, I tell you. My grandmother did it.

And with all of that said, I’m pretty sure all of you can imagine how I happy I was to be invited along with my friends to the launch of Korean skin care brand Pure Beauty‘s new Youth Restore Range. The launch was held in Putrajaya, while we were on a cruise on the lake. It was so much fun hanging out with my friends and making a couple more while learning about a new skin care product.
