Happy Halloween, everybody! It’s one of my most favourite holidays. Costumes? Crazy makeup? Sign me up!
That’s why today’s quick post is going to be about a makeup set – something I know will be useful to a lot of people who are into changing their look for a night of fun! It doesn’t hurt either that the name of the product kinda fits today’s holiday too. 😉
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!
It’s The Face Shop‘s line wherein science meets nature. It uses a European formula that contains 135 hand-blended recipes that vary in botanical ingredients. You’re basically purchasing history right there.
They sent me two products to try and I’m gonna be giving you a quick lowdown on each:
It’s no secret how much I love my Laneige BB Cushion. I rave about it every chance I get. Simply because, it’s the best in the market. For me, at least, as it works so well with my skin! It stays the whole day, it has a light yet buildable coverage, and a natural-looking finish. It’s definitely my go-to base product since most days, I just can’t seem to handle heavy makeup.
When I was told that the 3rd generation of the BB Cushion was being launched in Malaysia, I couldn’t say no to the invitation for the event. I needed to see it right away!
Has it really been a year since Althea launched?! I can’t believe it. Feels like it was only a few months ago! Time really does fly when you’re having fun and in the past 12 months with Althea, I most certainly did! 😉
The droids here at home are gonna be doing some shopping to celebrate too.
I get my Korean beauty products from Althea in the lowest prices imaginable. Every time a package from them arrives, it feels like I actually went to Myeong-dong in Seoul for some serious beauty shopping!
For Althea‘s first birthday, we’re gonna be the ones who will receiving gifts and treats! Awesome, right?!
The celebration and the promotions will be running from today, the 20th of July until the 31st of this month! Here’s what you’ll be getting:
I have to admit that I’ve become quite bored with a lot of blogging events and found myself not in the mood to attend. Mainly because I’m quite busy with so many things and when I find myself having free time, my lazy butt just refused to leave the comforts of our home. If it’s not something that would really pique my interest, I’ve been saying no.
Mamonde coming to Malaysia is something that fell into the category that piques my interest so off I went to Damansara on a weekend which is usually reserved for errands and dates with the husband. “It will only last for 2-3 hours, I promise!” was what I told Alvin that day.
I’m glad I went as I wasn’t disappointed. The event was well-thought off and the products got me really excited! But first, the basics!
Is it just another Korean Beauty Brand?
Mamonde (French word for ‘My World’) is yes, a Korean beauty brand. It’s also under Amore Pacific, Korea’s biggest cosmetics company that also owns Sulwhasoo, Laneige, and Innisfree among others. But what sets Mamonde apart is its use of flowers as the (only) key ingredients for its comprehensive skin care range. They also have makeup but we’ll get to that later.
Amore Pacific’s Research Institute experimented on flowers has been extracting nourishing ingredients that are good for our skin and bottling them up into products. Thus, the brand’s tagline – Inspired by flowers.
Shall we move on to the exciting bit? The products you should check out when they come to Malaysia? 😉
The most awkward video I have filmed so far. I guess it shows with how my voice was a couple of decibels higher (than the usual) throughout the video. 😉
Scroll down after the video for the list of products I mentioned and a discount code in Althea where you can get all these products. 🙂
It’s been a while since I last made a video! Today, it’s about something special – my new, favourite skin care tool! A facial cleansing brush that does the job well without ruining your budget plans for the month! 😉
Hope this review will be helpful to a lot of you who are looking for their own facial cleansing brush. 🙂
