REVIEW ON LC DERMA UV CC CREAM SPF 30


Have you tried any CC cream before?  It is a new craze after the BB cream and CC cream is sure different from BB cream because of skincare benefits that CC cream provides.  Korean makeup uses BB cream, CC cream and also CC cushion for their 'Oh so natural' makeup.

I have my fair share of getting into the bandwagon of CC cream.  Some was a hit and some are just not as awesome as I thought that it would be.  Let just say that when I saw this LC Derma UV CC cream SPF 30, I was not thinking much of it until I tried it and YES I am impressed.  Well, more impressed than some high ended CC cream.  Continue reading or jump to the end of the post to see why I am so impressed with this CC cream.

LC DERMA UV CC CREAM SPF 30
LC DERMA UV CC CREAM SPF 30 Box

First, there is no preservative in their products =) .  I find that almost every other CC cream contains preservative.  If you do not believe me, then check if there are paraben or other type of preservative.  This one doesn't have preservative that will hurt or cause allergic in the future!

After opening one should finish using it within 6 months.  It is stated on the box.



LC DERMA UV CC CREAM SPF 30
simple plastic bottle that can be recycle later =)
I really like this concept as the bottle is easy and really light to be brought around.  I don't like to carry heavy bottle of makeup around.  I don't have to worry if I drop it to the floor too as I am quite clumsy.

LC DERMA UV CC CREAM SPF 30
can you see the word Mega+ ?

The expiry date is written on the bottom of the bottle.
You can take a look at the bottom of the bottle and noticed the word    'mega +' .  They are using Germany type of airtight bottle!  So, do not worry of the air going into the bottle and oxidized the CC cream.  

LC DERMA UV CC CREAM SPF 30
ingredients list at the back of the bottle

LC DERMA UV CC CREAM SPF 30
simple and easy to use pump type of cap.

The pump is easy to use and one can control the amount of cc cream coming out from the pump.  I need one pump for a light coverage.  Two pump would be enough for a full coverage on the days my skin isn't behaving that nice.  Don't be too greedy and use too much because it will brighten the skin so much that you would look too white.  The CC cream is actually looks good on its own because it doesn't oxidized on me at all.  The particle is so fine it glide on my skin.


Test for CC cream
Testing on the CC cream
Try this test to know how smooth is the CC cream.
1. Take an ice cube
2.  Rub it on the cc cream.
3. Voile.  See, it doesn't stick onto the cc cream no matter how hard I rub!  That shows how fine the CC cream is!


LC DERMA UV CC CREAM SPF 30
the results on my hands
The cc cream take some time to adjust to my skin tone colour.  I was at first shocked at how white it was on my skin but it change to my skintone colour.  It sure make my skin brighter than before.  It look very natural too.  The cream is really hydrating and it is not oily at all.  It sure doesn't cake up or run into the crease of the nasalobial line at all!  It also doesn't make my skin patchy by the end of the day so I find this is really good as most BB cream can make my skin dry.

LC DERMA UV CC CREAM SPF 30
before and after
Can you see the immediate differences? 
I think every skin types would like this very much as it make the skin moist and hydrated.  .  My face looks  a little oily on the T-zone after 4hours without primer but nothing serious that I can just bloat with a tissue.

One features that I love about this CC cream it that it is Waterproof and Sweat proof ! My skin virtually look like it is Photoshop in real life and no one knows about it.  Normally, CC cream will come off when I blot but this CC cream won't budge no matter how hard I rub it.  I love this waterproof feature very much.  Even when I blot it with tissue, the CC cream doesn't come out at all.  No one will know that you are wearing make up at all!

This CC cream works equally good and on par with all the counters brands =)  .Of course I would buy this again after I finish this bottle =) .

RANDOM: MOTHER'S DAY POEM

Mother's Day is coming and I am sure many people are thinking of what to give to their mother. =)

Have you got something for your mum?  Or you are out of idea on what to get your mum?  The list should be endless since many brands will come out with sets of skincare, makeup, bath sets and restaurant would have special sets for Mother's Day.

As for me, mother's day is everyday if it is possible but with making my mum fuming in between XP  .  I am not a perfect daughter hahahahaha.

Mother's Day is a day that we will avoid eating out, going out or shopping outside.  I don't mind paying the extra but the thought of waiting hours for food annoys my mum.  So, we usually celebrate few weeks before or weeks after.  Just going for dinner or something nice.  It only started few years ago so it is not a every year thing.  I don't get my mum flowers because she hates something that is not practical.lol

I wrote this for a competition but I don't even think that I will win or anything but well just sharing it here.





Connect

I envy my friends for being close with their mum,

My mum and I were just like cats and dogs,

I listen to Katty Perry but my mum listen to some Chinese opera song

I read The Star newspaper but my mum can’t

I like spaghetti but my mum only eats Chinese food

I am fond of fried chicken but my mum cooks me fishes

I watch English drama but my mum watch Hong Kong drama

I love dark blue but my mum hates it

In many ways we are not connected

But One thing for sure- We are connected by LOVE

My mum loves me unconditionally

She rushed me to clinic in the middle of the night

She stayed with me the whole night when I was having fever,

Learn to ride the motorcycle just to send me to school which is 1hour away,

Stayed firm that we must finish our school when financial crisis hit my family,

And trained us to be independent.

My mum is not perfect or educated

But I would not trade her for someone else.




So, what do you do for Mother's Day?

REVIEW ON LA BELLE CUSTOMISED AMPOULES FOR ACNE PRONE SKIN AND EYE BAGS



 LA BELLE AMPOULES
 LA BELLE AMPOULES&ESSENCE COMES IN THIS ELEGANT BOX


La Belle is are made famous for their Fair Makeup Ampoules that have 2 in 1 function- as a base before putting make ups and as a hydration ampoules to our skin. Normally we use the makeup to make it long lasting. Other types of ampoules are catered for skincare benefits and it works way faster because of more concentrated. I was excited because the ampoules are specially customized for my skin type. I wouldn't know what to choose looking at so many choices around.

Cheryl from http://sweetampoules.blogspot.com is very kind and veryX10 friendly =). She customised the ampoules according to my skin, provide specific instruction on how to use the ampoules and provide me with eye luxe ampoules for my eye bags =) .


There are two major skin problems in my life! One is my dearie puffy eyes which I already gave up and also my pimples - although it is not really serious but seriously who like it, right?

Here is a little about La Belle.

La Belle Product is mainly extracted from natural ingredients, the delicate blend of ingredients are so fine that allow for fast and effective absorption into the deeper layers of the skin.

Age, environment, and lifestyle are all factors that can affect the tone, texture, and resiliency of the skin, these treatment based products target skin's ever-changing needs with highly effective botanically-based formulas. Enriched with vitamins, plant emollients, and natural protestants, these formulas can be incorporated into skin's daily regimen-or used as needed to supplement any skin care routine to achieve better Effect.

LA BELLE AMPOULES&ESSENCE
FROM TOP LEFT:ACNEX AMPOULE,HYDRA ESSENCE, GOLD ESSENCE, EYE LUXE AMPOULE
FROM BOTTOM LEFT:ACNEX AMPOULE, HYDRA ESSENCE, GOLD ESSENCE, PORE MINIMIZING AMPOULE


Voila! These are my customized ampoules by Sweet Ampoules which literally for my skin type for I have sensitive, acne prone + combination skin (where oily on T-zone and normal on others) and also not to mention- my eye bags.

-2 Vials of La Belle Acnex Ampoule
- 1 Vial of Pore Minimizing Ampoules
-1 Vial of Eye Luxe Ampoules
- 2 Vials of La Belle Hydra Essences
- 2 Vials of Gold Essences
- 1 Packet of Grey Mud Masks

La Belle Acnex Ampoule Soothes irritates area. Contain antiseptic effect on acne and pimples skin. Excellent in control breakouts.

La belle Gold Essence use 24K Pure gold leaf helps to slow collagen depletion and prevent sagging skin. It also assists in protection against pollution effects & damaging UV rays. Gold speeds up cellular processes and active regeneration to regenerate healthy, firm skin cells and reduce fine line & wrinkle.


Here is the instructions for my skin type:
Day time
Cleanser > toner >acnex/ pore minimising ampoules > day cream

Night time
Cleanser>toner > hydra> night cream> right before bed,  treatment essence (La belle Gold Essence, La Belle Eye Luxe

Pampering
Cleanser >  Toner > Powder mask > treatment ampoule/essence



The ampoules, essence comes in 3.5ml or 0.12 fl.oz. The bottles are really cute but one need to be careful when opening.  You won't need to use a lot of ampoules to see the results.  Besides, ampoule is very concentrated so a little is enough.

Visit this link to know the differences between ampoules and essence.  Essence and ampoule is not the same.


How to use/open Ampoule/ Essence
1. Firstly, peel off from the area which show an arrow on the aluminium cap . Throw away the aluminium cap after peel off.
2. If you plan to use the essence for few days, you may pour into a small bottle
3. Then you pour the remaining amount into you palm, and then slowly spread it evenly on your face
4. Lastly, massage upward , to ensure every part of your face is able to absorb.



Ampoules are basically scent-less except for Acnex because it is formulated with liquorice and herb extracts and with antiseptic effects but it is nothing unpleasant and the smell will disappear immediately once applied to skin. The ampoule gives a cooling sensation and it absorbs quickly into the skin cells. Essences absorbs way slower because it is slightly heavier in texture compare to the ampoules. I would suggest one to incorporate ampoule into their skin regime for a faster results especially for a special events. I had been using La Belle ampoule and it improves my skin so much. You may want to know My favorite ampoule that helped my skin? Of course the Acnex ampoule that works really fast to reduce those acne and pimples, Pore Minimizing and La Belle Gold Essence.

Here is the results for using the special customised ampoules for 19 days.

LA BELLE CUSTOMISED AMPOULES FOR ACNE PRONE
can you notice the amazing results?


The pimples reduce its redness by day 7 and my pores were much smaller. I love how my skin was reacting on day 19. In case if anyone wondering why it stop at Day 19 , it is because I went for camping on the next day...Sigh, Just when my skin starts to look fabulous and it's camping time! My skin turned bad after the three days of camping due to lack of sleep, not drinking enough of water and NO Skincare products!! I will put that up as second part since it is not fair to show you the skin that went extreme harsh treatment for few days.




LA BELLE EYE LUXE FOR EYE BAG
Results for using eye Luxe Ampoules

Here is the results for my eye area.  No editing done to it. If you notice my eye area are really brighten up.  I was really surprise after looking at the photos.  My eyes is lifted.  Of course my eye bags won't disappeared like magic since I have only been using it for 19 days.

I actually divided the packet into two times usage.  Add 30ml water with 15ml La Belle Rose Toner.  Blend them and apply them quickly or else it will become gooey.  If look at the picture, yes it has become quite gooey on my face because I am slow in applying.  My face sure has become brighter and less red after using the mask =).

FOOD REVIEW ON HAI SOON RESTAURANT

HUP SOON RESTAURANT

This is a family restaurant owned by a young husband and wife.  They will only opened it after 7pm so be prepared to wait for nearly 45minutes before you get serve.  Services is generally slow so don't visit it when it is full.  It is not a halal restaurant.

Ba Kut Teh
Bak Kut Teh

Their most famous dishes would be the Bak Kut Teh.  It is count bases on person and not on how big is your pot. No refill for the Bak Kut Teh.  One can choose the type of meat that goes inside the Bak Kut Teh.  I don't like intestines so I choose the ribs, 3layer pork and also the normal pork.  There is also some tofu skin.  I think it may be duration of time they cooked the meat as I find all the types of hard and too chewy for my liking. Soup based was pretty salted and again not to my liking.  RM7 to RM8 per person.

 rice in a traditional bowl
 rice in a traditional bowl

Their rice are served in this traditional bowl.  So, one have to use chopstick to eat or it would be very difficult to with spoon and pork.  Rice are not really nice as I think they are just using the cheapest rice available.

Sautee mustard
Sautee mustard 

Sautee mustard is not bad.  The vegetables is cooked just nice and the leaves are not hard or overcooked.  It is sautee using lard and it comes with bits of crunchy pork   Unfortunately, if you are a healthy freak you would find this not to your liking.

chrysanthemum tea
chrysanthemum tea

This is a chrysanthemum tea but they served it in a beer glass.  Don't mistake with beer.  Here, they served beer as well.  The tea is smell nice and clear.  It is not too sweet or too plain.  I think this drink is nice.

vegetables RM7
Ba Kut Teh RM8 per person
chrysanthemum tea RM1 per glass

RANDOM: BLOOD CURDLING POEMS

Actually I like writing short stories and poems but I had never put them up in my blog because am ‘shy’. So, I have been writing only and not sharing it.  Don't read it if it is going to give you nightmare.  I hope that it is not as scary as horror movies.


1.Person that appears in my nightmare

The hair unruly,

The ugliness of appearance,

Behind the annoying conduct

The darkness around,

Invading my dream,

Choking me to infinite suffering,

Of mental disturbance,

Woke with cold sweats,

What happened just now?





2.Deceptor

The smirk

Hiding behind a veil of angelic face,

A friendly conduct that kills

Air that suffocates,

Perfume that is choking my nose,

Sounds of footsteps that is poisoning me to no end

An aura of dangers lurking behind the greed,

Giving never ending bitter dreams




The works expressed here are my own and have nothing to do with anyone.  It is just my writing.

SKINCARE TIPS:ACNE SCARS PRODUCTS

SKINCARE TIPS:ACNE SCARS PRODUCTS

After we are done with our acne, there will be those red marks left on our skin and it can be months until it disappears or it will turn into ugly dark spots if we do not find cream to fade it away. Of course, we won’t look great with all those dark spots to remind us of those pesky acne that is already giving us hell and these marks add more to our already sad problem

Here are some of the things that I had tried before that works and some products that others rave about. I will update this post from time to time.


Over the counter products

Vitamin C-generally vitamin V product are very expensive because they are highly reactive and unstable.  It help to brighten the skin so those acne darks scars will be reduce. Seriously, I haven't get to try them yet but many said it is fabulous.

La Roche Posay Effaclar duo-we don’t have this product in Malaysia.  You can try getting it from Singapore.

Regen Oil-some said it works better than Bio Oil.  One can get it from the pharmacies

Bio Oil-can get it from pharmacies.  I find it good in removing scars on body but not for my face.

Vitamin E-it help to heal the skin.  I personally haven't try using the vitamin E capsules.  The one I tried before was the vitamin E cream and it doesn't work.  Don't use it everyday after your scars heal as it will cause your hair to be more prominent or grow more hairs????

Aspirin Mask-can get it from pharmacies.  This is sure my favourite as it work the fastest. Don't use if you are allergic to antibiotic.

Aloe Vera-can buy it from pharmacies.  Well known one would be Fruit of Earth and Nature Republic Aloe Vera.

Acne ampoule-I think it is because the ingredients penetrate fast into the skin so it works quite fast too.

Mandelic Acid- It renew the skin and deep clean the skin of all the impurities.

Hydrocolloid dressing


If you are a person who do not like to use products then you try using
DIY products.

Tomato mask-it heal the skin and lessen the acne, pimples but one need to use it three days straight to see the effect.

Lemon juice- do not go out into the sun when you applied this as it will cause the skin to darken more.

Egg mask-nice but I don't like the smell.

Epsom salt-It does work but quite slow.  I find many said it is good.  Even Korean show recommended it to mix the Epsom salt with cleanser for a cleaner face.

Honey-Personally this is good but I rather eat the honey than put it on my face. XP


There are no products review in this post.  I will update this page from time to time.  The opinions expressed here are my own and honest as always.

VERSATILE BLOGGER



I was nominated by Nindya Retnasatiti from http://silvertreasure.blogspot.com
Actually, I am lazy and that is why I took so long to answer this question. I don't know how to play this verstaile blogger tag thing so I think I will just answer question here.

Here are the questions:

1. Why did you start to blog about beauty?
It was actually 1 year ago when someone suggested that I should start blogging since I buy a lot of skincare to try because of my horrible skincare condition. I was pimply, acne prone and looked so much like an erupting volcanoes.  I kept on trying which wasted a lot of money and finally found some products suitable for my skin.  So, I was just sharing what works for my skin and what I notice from the current skincare products.

2. If you could do some famous celebrity's makeup, who'd you pick?
I am actually am really horrible at makeup. I can't never get the eyeliner, foundation colour, eyeshadow colour right. Even lipstick take me 10minutes to get it correct. I think the makeup would end up not looking at all like those celebrity flawless makeup if I do one.

3. How do you store your makeup collection?
I actually do not have much makeup and definitely not a collection at all. I put all my skincare and makeup into a huge box and that that also make my family members make a fuss about me using so much of skincare and makeup.

4. Who is your favorite beauty guru?
None actually because I don't like to makeup and couldn't get it right =(. I think makeup hates me.

5. Who is your girl crush celebrity?
Not sure actually.  I don't know many celebrities.


6. What is your favorite makeup brand and why?
MAC because their colour are so pigmented and beautiful. Quite pricey for my pocket tough. Drugstore products would be something Maybelline and recently try a made in Malaysia products.  Korean brand would be Tony Moly since the brands has so many cheap and good base makeup such as bb and cc cream.  I am basically a person who looks for affordable makeup.

7. What's your favorite animal?
I actually like most animal but it would be a tiger I guess but I can never keep one.


8. What's your favorite food?
  I have a lot of food that I like to eat.  Mainly I don't like food that are too sweet but I like dessert very much especially ice cream which can contribute to bad skin. XP  I still eat them but only on weekly basis.  Most food that are like are all very bad for the waist and skin XP.  Can't help it right?  Who doesn't like chocolates, cakes, pies, macaroons, ice cream, coffee and blended drinks?  I don't like cucumber and no matter how I force myself to eat them, I just can't accept the smell.

9. If you could be a superhero, what kind of super power you wish to have?
Superpower well, if only it can come true but well it fine to dream =) .  I would like if it has something to do with water. =)


10. Lipstick or eyeliner?
I prefer lipstick as it can change my appearance from day to night in a flash. I am better in using lipstick than eyeliner that would take me 1hour to just draw a crooked line.  Why everyone can do it so easily while I can't although I have been practising every week?


11. Fuchsia or Peach?
Fuchsia as I am a person who love bright colour this year.

REVIEW ON HEAVEN ON EARTH LAVENDER FLORAL WATER


Let just admit that everyone want a hydrated soft skin. Who don’t right? Using mist does help with the skin hydration especially when it is super hot here and we do not like to use thick moisturizer that will later just make the face look slick and greasy.

Personally, I do use mist to help with the hydration of my skin. Although I have combination skin, it does not mean that there is no need for moisturizer throughout the day. I don’t like applying moisturizer on my face if I don’t wash so using mist is a good option. Just spray and one can leave.

HEAVEN ON EARTH LAVENDER FLORAL WATER
the results of using the mist. my skin look very much moist




The correct way to use a mist is to spray it after 0.5m distance as too near will make the mist eveporated fast and make your skin dry faster. Then, pat the mist into your face.  I use it to increase hydration of my skin or when I feel dry or oily.  It smell really nice and help me to go to sleep since I have been having trouble to sleep this few weeks.  The smell is not overpowering and nice that make me feel very relaxing.

Another way I am using is spray the mist into the cotton pad and then pat around 5 times into my skin.  The skin will feel much plump and moist.

REVIEW ON NEUTROGENA HYDRO BOOST GEL SPF30 PA++

NEUTROGENA HYDRO BOOST GEL SPF30 PA++
NEUTROGENA HYDRO BOOST GEL SPF30 PA++ GEL




NEUTROGENA HYDRO BOOST GEL SPF30 PA++ is to complement the existing Hydro Boost series features innovative 12hour progressive release system that releases moisturise to dry skin cells throughout the day.  Its refreshing gel formula with purified Hyaluronic Acid and Olive extract for a hydrated, luminous and bouncy skin.  It replenishes and retains water all the night.

Al right, I only tried the 5ml samples that I have and 5ml finishes fast with this kind of humid weather we have here. It has been few months since it last rained and it is already 40 Celsius here.  Yes, it is very hot here.  I think SPF 30 is not enough for such hot weather unless you stay indoor all the time.  The gel texture is quite light and not greasy.  I find the gel smell something like typical body shampoo or soap.

The gel contains dimethicone and glycerin for skin hydration.  I find that the gel does absorb well into my skin leaving my skin quite soft to the touch.  My skin is smooth and there is a dewy look.The moisturiser lasted few hours before I sweating too much and my skin become too oily after few hours to really test it out. It is 40 Celsius here X(  ! I think this suits people with normal skin to dry skin and for one who like dimethicone.

REVIEW ON TOTAL IMAGE SMELLY NO MORE

Add caption
this photo is from Total Image official brand website

If there is one beauty product that I can’t leave the house is deodorant no matter how busy or lazy I am. I don’t know about you but I have been trying to get rid of the body odour problem since like forever. I have tried type ranging from deodorant and perfume but still it doesn't help with getting rid of the smell.  I still smell bad! I get very caution when someone is near me in case they can smell my horrible body odour since I perspire easily compare to others.

Of course it is humiliating even if they don’t want to mention it at all. The first thing that I get to know about beauty products was actually deodorant because my kind aunt bought this for me. Being presentable is not just looking nice with makeup but also not to smell bad. It is torturing to keep smelling bad air but we can’t them to back off!

So, today I am introducing to you this Total Image Smelly No More.



Banish odours once and for all in underarms, behind the knees, neck and feet with a deodorant made from natural ingredients, and take on the world with renewed confidence.


Certificates

TOTAL IMAGE SMELLY NO MORE
TOTAL IMAGE SMELLY NO MORE



Smelly no More is a straightforward name and I was surprised that I can actually use it on my foot and arms area. There is actually no smell at all no matter how you try to sniff at it so I can use it with my perfume without clashes of different type of perfume.



TOTAL IMAGE SMELLY NO MORE
TOTAL IMAGE SMELLY NO MORE Bottom of the deodorant. can you see the small holes?


It is easy to carry the mineral salt around since it is small and compact. It is a little heavy.  On the base of the deodorant, there is a hole for the extra water to flow out.  So, don't wet the whole deodorant or be prepare to find a lot of crystallise mineral salt around it the next day.Just use a little water to wet the top part will do.

However, I find that the mineral salt can be easily broken when trying to screw especially when I am in the hurry. Most of the time, I just leave it like that because it is better not for me to broke it. I would prefer if it is in form of twist up.  Other than that, everything is great =) .

I have been using it for about few weeks and yes, I don't smell bad even when I am sweating like crazy.  It is also very smooth and you won't feel anything on your before applying or applying.  The skin area is just normal =)  .

It is safe since there is not alcohol, fragrance and it is not even anti antiperspirant.  I would recommend this for those looking for natural way of banishing smell =).  It really works =)  .


Thanks to Total Image again for providing this products for review.
