KOREAN BEAUTY 2015 TREND

Hi gorgeous,

I know that I am late in posting this but better late than never right?  So I am here is the latest 2015 Korean trends.

KOREAN BEAUTY 2015 TREND


Skin type


It is the glowing skin, poreless and fair skin here. The younger the skin looks, the better. Bronzer or darker kind of shadow is just to give the V shape to the face. I don’t think Asians like tan skin. It is always fair here.


Also the makeup is usually the “no makeup look”. So, most of the makeup usually look really natural. Besides, most prefer to invest their time into skincare than buying the latest makeup products.




DIY skincare products



I think there are already emerging brands that offer the opportunities to DIY their own skincare. However, I am not sure about the choice because from what I see, choice is still limited to few ingredients and skin type. Most of the ingredients are using essential oil which not everyone are suited to. However, some will opt to DIY their own because it doesn’t contain any preservatives or more ‘natural’.


The only thing I don’t suggest one to DIY their own will probably be sunscreen and serum. Those need to be made by professional in a secure laboratory to ensure their potency.




DIY cosmetics /recycle

Banila Co. VV Bouncing Cushion (SPF50+ PA+++)







Currently there are also bloggers that shows how to recycle makeup products into something else. I commonly saw the eye shadows and lipstick recycle into blusher, cc blusher cushion and also shadow sticks. I think the common one is to recycle your eyeshadow into nail polish.


I like the ability to make your own bb/cc cushion. You can actually mix up endless of products but since it is currently new and we have lacked of chemistry knowledge, then we are not sure of what will happen to the product on our skin in long run. One thing for sure, it might be cheaper than buying the readymade bb/cc cushion since we can just use our foundation or bb creams and turn them into cc cushion.


Again DIY products usually don’t last long as those made in the sterile environment of the laboratories. Still you can make use of those products that you do not use into something that you can use right?



Skincare products

Secret Key Starting Treatment Essence


I wouldn’t say that Korean brands has all their skincare in ‘organic’ form but most of the brands try to make their skincare products safe from harmful ingredients. So, do read the ingredients up if you are particular about free from paraben, synthetic ingredients or dye.  Fermented products are still in trend and more natural products will be be included in their skincare products.




Famous skincare products and cosmetics that are currently in trend for 2015.


Most of the products became famous after appearing in the Beauty shows

Berrisom Animal masks
Animal masks

Animal masks-there are many brands now that came up with fun looking animal mask and also there is some geisha looking mask. It started in Japan I think.


Elisha Horse oil
Horse oil

Horse oil-this ingredients came out for it moisturizing properties and even many celebrities were using it. It is mainly for dry skin type so I avoid this.


I'm from Honey mask
Honey mask
Honey-honey trend just make its come back in form of the I’m from honey mask which quickly becomes loved by Korean. It is a mask for every type of skin.


Donkey milk
Donkey milk toner

Donkey milk-this one came out as one of the anti ageing skincare products in sleeping pack. Not sure how it will work



Gold mask- this is a new trend of applying the gold mask on the face which turns rubbery after that. There are few brands that currently make this mask but I am not sure on how famous it is compared to the honey mask.  Many said that their face look so glowing after using gold mask.


Lip tint pack
Lip tint pack

Berrisom Lip tint pack-this is a pack where it is like a tattoo for the whole day.


24hours makeup-2015 is about producing cosmetics that can last the whole day without clogging or disappearing after few hours. These products are tattoo which doesn't disappeared after just one application.  There is the lip tint, eyeliner and eyebrow.



Cushion makeup-here come the cushion blusher and cushion eyeliner after the cushion swept the world beauty cosmetics.


Skinfood pore fit cushion bottle
Skinfood pore fit cushion bottle

Cooling products- Skinfood pore fit cushion bottle is a cooling cushion in form of a bottle that you shakes vigorously. It really cool down the skin for a smaller looking pore. I saw many people were already asking for it here but the products haven't reach my country yet. The coverage is light to medium.
The Face Shop Natural Sun Ice Air Puff Sun
The Face Shop Natural Sun Ice Air Puff Sun

The Face Shop Natural Sun Ice Air Puff Sun and O HUI’s Sun Science Moisture Cooling Sunblock are sunscreen that comes in form of a bottle for cooling session too. It is not a mist.

COSRX Apple Zone Power Patch
COSRX Apple Zone Power Patch

Shara Shara Baby Foot Peeling Mask (40ml)
Shara Shara Baby Foot Peeling Mask (40ml)


Patches- you name it, the Korean have it for whatever patches that you need. Be it for butterfly zone on the face, the apple zone, the legs, arms, waist,lips, eyes or even for the neck. These patches are for variety of reasons and because of the convenience.



Let me know if there are trends that I have probably forget to mention here.

Have you tried any of the beauty trend or is any of the trend of interest to you?

REVIEW ON AVÈNE CLEANANCE EXPERT EMULSION

Hi Beauties,


Avène is a familiar French skincare brand for their thermal spring water which is suitable for sensitive skin. I really like their Eau Thermale Avène Micellar Make-up Remover which is really gentle.

As for the product today, it is their new Cleanance EXPERT emulsion from the Cleanance range.  Avène Cleanance range is suitable for oily, acne prone skin. So, if you have oily acne prone skin and is looking for suitable products, do check this out.

AVÈNE CLEANANCE EXPERT EMULSION
AVÈNE CLEANANCE EXPERT EMULSION 


Here are some details about Avène Cleanance EXPERT emulsion.


Its benefits:

- Anti-blemishes: DiolénylTM*, a patented innovation developed by Pierre Fabre Research, with a selective triple action to limit the risk of bacterial proliferation (clinically in vitro proven on P. acnes), reduce redness and help eliminate spots.

- Exfoliating: X-PressinTM* helps reduce blackheads and smoothes the skin's texture.

- Mattifying: Monolaurin* regulates the hyperproduction of sebum.

*Patents pending.



Cleanance EXPERT is a light emulsion especially made for mild to moderate acne-prone skin with spots and blackheads.


How to use:
Apply morning and/or evening to the face after using a Cleanance cleanser.

Cleanance EXPERT can be used alone or in combination with a local medicinal treatment from Dermatologist.
 .

I do like the simple clean look of the products.  I think the screw lid is especially helpful to prevent spillage especially during travelling.

Avène Cleanance EXPERT emulsion is for mild to moderate acne skin type.  This emulsion is an acne treatment for oily skin type.


I think it helps to control the oil production making my face matte through the day. Oil started to appear on my nose by noon but with this emulsion my nose stay matte through the day.

I like the scent of the emulsion.  All the skincare products in the Cleanance range has the same scent which is not overpowering.  The emulsion is also gentle enough not to cause redness or sensitivity on my skin so it is great even for sensitive skin given that the first ingredients are thermal spring water =) .
AVÈNE CLEANANCE EXPERT EMULSION
AVÈNE CLEANANCE EXPERT EMULSION AFTER 2 WEEKS

Application of the emulsion is really smooth. The emulsion is really soft and absorb into the skin fast.  It is really good as makeup base to prevent pore clogging. After using the emulsion for 2 weeks, my skin sure does look clear up and the redness are reduced.  You can actually use the emulsion with other acne products but I did not because I wanted to see how fast the emulsion will show the effect on my skin.



Product retails for

Avène Cleanance EXPERT emulsion 40ml RM75.
Made in France.
Available in Guardian, Watsons, Caring Pharmacy, SASA & Independent Pharmacies .

JAPANESE GREEN TEA KIT KAT


Hi foodies,


When there is no one to cheer you up, you cheer yourself up!

One of the MUST get when you are in Japan is their Kit Kat. There are as many as 200 types of Nestle Kit Kat flavors. From dark chocolates, strawberry cheese cake, tofu, miso, wasabi , soya sauce and even the cake flavor which you have to heat up. Don’t get the wasabi unless you are up for a challenge. XD


It is a great souvenir since you can't get it from other countries.

So, basically there was only that usual milk chocolate Kit Kat until I got this green tea kit kat. Of course I was really curious about it even if it is more expensive than the normal ones. The packaging is the same as the one from Japan just that it has other languages on it. At least we can read it!

JAPANESE GREEN TEA KIT KAT

It has mild green tea taste. It is sweet to me but everyone threshold of sweetness is different.  Anyhow, if you care about your waist line, then don’t eat more than one mini bar per day.  Treat it as some sort of 'treats' that you can have once in a while.   It is good to share it with another person. It is nice and if you love green tea, this will be probably one of the flavors that you should get when you are in Japan. XP Better than those ‘cute looking banana cake’ which does not taste good to me.

One serving contains:
7.6g sugar
1.1g protein
5.6 fat
16mg sodium
9.7g cabohydrate

So, it is not advisable to eat more than 1 mini bar per day because you can easily go over your daily intake of 60g of sugar daily.  Besides, eating too much process food with high sugar content causes diabetes in long run,  you will also have bad skin(acne) and pot belly appearing.  After all, sugar is Number 1 killer for skin.

I think by the time I wrote this, other Asian countries probably already have this in their stores. Also, I have been thinking about it the whole day and by the time I came home, tired and unhappy, I was made even angrier because someone ate all the green tea Kit Kat I have been thinking all day. T_T



Products retails at
A packet of 8packets mini Kit Kat for RM13

Do you love Korean skincare products?  If you do, today I am sharing another review from a Korean brand Skinmiso.  If you have read my reviews on Skimiso pore pack and pore corset serum which are really famous and loves by many, you will like this one too.

South Korea is famous with their Asian skincare routine and the skincare products that works on par with some high end brands at the fraction of price.  Korean brands come up with products that suits every skin type making it easy to choose the suitable products for your skin.

If you want to know more about Asian skincare products and the differences between western skincare products, do check out this link Here.

The direction on the usage of the Skinmiso pore zero cream for those who want to use the entire range of Skinmiso products. This routine basically treats large pore problem, redness, dryness, ageing and irritation.

You do not have to buy all the products as "how to use".

The only product that I use from the "how to use" is the Skinmiso pore zero night cream.  So, results may varies according to how you tweak your skincare products.

The tube is made from plastic. It is 80g and you should finish it within 6months after opening since it is not hygienic to keep dip your fingers into the tube.

The manufactured date is printed at the bottom of the tube as well.  The two korean words represent manufactured date.




Here is the list of ingredients.

Ingredients:
Water, Glycerin, Dimethicone, Squalane, Butylene Glycol, Butylene Glycol Dicaprylate/Dicaprate, Arbutin,Stearic Acid, Octyldodecanol, Caprylic/Capric/Myristic/Stearic Triglyceride, Cetyl Alcohol, Stearyl Alcohol, Glyceryl Stearate, PEG-100 Stearate, Steareth-2, Biosaccharide Gum-1, Piper Methysticum Leaf/Root/Stem Extract, Phenoxyethanol, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Arginine, Xanthan Gum, Tocopheryl Acetate, Panthenol, Phytosphingosine, Hydrogenated Lecithin, Disodium EDTA, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate, Adenosine, BHT, Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract, Melissa Officinalis Extract, Salvia Officinalis (Sage) Leaf Extract, Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Leaf Extract, Mentha Piperita (Peppermint) Extract, Chlorphenesin




The first ingredients is water and the second ingredient is glycerin which are beneficial for the skin. Dimethicone is a type of silicone-the reason of suggestion for dry skin type and as night cream.  It is good to use it during winter or in cold weather.  The ingredients are not irritating or pores clogging =).


SKINMISO PORE ZERO NIGHT CREAM

It will be a little heavier if you have super oily skin type.

I have combination skin type (oily on nose & normal on the other area) as well as sensitivity.  However, skin gets dry during the night so this is perfect for it.  I think it is very thoughtful of Skinmiso to come up with skincare products that has pore tightening properties for dry skin type.  The usual products for pore are for oily skin type.  Dry skin type should not use skincare products for oily skin type or else your skin will be irritated and turn really red.



SKINMISO PORE ZERO NIGHT CREAM
SKINMISO PORE ZERO NIGHT CREAM



The cream smell faintly of mixture of licorice and sage.  The cream might look heavy but it will melt upon contact with your skin leaving no trace of oiliness.  A little is enough for the whole face which is really economical.  A jar can last few months.  My skin is really more moisturised and pores are less obvious after 1month of usage.  Skin is really soft too.  I do recommend dry skin type to try this =) .

The is some differences from the lighting but I guess one can see the differences because I actually took the after even clearer and nearer.  My pores are smaller =). Smoother and brighter skin too.

BEAUTY JUICE: COOLING JUICE FOR HOT SUMMER

If you are into natural way of taking care of you skin, then you have probably heard of traditional medicine that talks about the balance of ying and yang.  This applies even to the skin health.  If you are 'overheated' with food such as red meat and fried food, then it is recommended to drink or eat vegetables to balance the 'qi' out.

If you still do not do anything about it, then you are probably going to have sudden flare up of skin issues such as acne or pimples.

Personally, I hate eating cucumber because I can never like the smell not matter how hard I tried.  I know there are so much benefits from eating cucumber but well I just 'hate it'.  So, I will just make juice out of it.

This is a vegetables juice to cool down your body especially on hot day or in a summer.



BEAUTY JUICE: COOLING JUICE ,CUCUMBER AND CHINESE TURNIP
Add caption
Ingredients (for 2 person)
1 big Jicama turnip(chinese turnip) (peeled the skin and cut)
1 Cucumber (I used the Japanese cucumber because it is sweet and not bitter) (I just washed the skin and cut it in half)


The reason that you can get such beautiful colour is I pressed the juice from the chinese turnip first. Then followed by the cucumber. Lastly, top it up with chinese turnip.  After you mix it, it will be light green.  The juice will look cool XP.

If you like cucumber, then you will enjoy the smell and the taste.  It is lightly sweet so it doesn't taste bad.  In fact, it is actually nice.  There is no need to add in any sugar or whatever sweetener.

The only thing is it has strong fresh cucumber smell.  It is just in my genes (I am the only one in my family that hates it).

Please don't tell me to keep forcing myself to eat cucumber everyday T_T  .  I had been doing it for the past 10 years but still hate it.  I wonder when my taste buds are going to change for the better and be in love with cucumber? XD




BEAUTY JUICE: COOLING JUICE ,CUCUMBER AND CHINESE TURNIP



Beautiful colour right?

Another tips for drinking juice.   Drink the juice one to two hours before bed.  There is no need to eat heavy supper.  However, do drink a cup of vegetables or fruit juice which can assist your stomach and help your body.

*word of advice-do not give this juice to your children at night or they will either pee in the bed or run to the toilet in the middle of the night.

I have no time in the morning because I always in rush or am way to lazy.  Moreover, I prefer coffee or tea in the morning.  So fruit juice and vegetables juice is for my supper. XP

REVIEW ON THE FACE SHOP REAL NATURE RICE MASK


Sheet masks are part of beauty routine in Asian and now it has also becomes favourited by many skincare junkies for the calming, faster visible results properties and not to mention handy to carry during travel.  It is recommended to use a face mask to calm the face during the flight =).

So, here is my review on the rice sheet masks.

THE FACE SHOP REAL NATURE RICE MASK
THE FACE SHOP REAL NATURE RICE MASK

THE FACE SHOP REAL NATURE RICE MASK
THE FACE SHOP REAL NATURE RICE MASK


Rice:- It exfoliates dead skin cells and brightens dull skin with no artificial coloring contained.


How to use:
Step 1: Apply the sheet on your face after thorough rinsing
Step 2: Leave it for a few minutes
Step 3: Gently rinse with water and wipe with cotton for best results


Rice mask has brightening effect and is gentler to the skin so skin.  It is also moisturising to skin.  The mask sheet is huge enough for my face.  There is some scent which is not too strong but I have no idea what it is. Overall, it does make my face brighter and more moisturise.  The effect lasts for few hours.  One will need to continuously use the mask to see more brightening effect.

Not for anyone who wants to avoid paraben and fragrance.


I did the review for the TheFaceShop aloe sheet mask.  Check it out to see the size and texture of the sheet masks as the sheet masks looks the same for the Real Nature range.




Products
The Face Shop Real Nature Mask Lemon retails at RM6.90 per piece.


I redeemed it from this Muffin website. Registered and then collect points for reviewing products. It is a free sampling Malaysia website.

TIPS FOR LOSING WEIGHT WITHOUT STARVATION

It is a common thing to hear people going on diet to achieve that 'S' body or that 'hourglass' body.  I will not recommend anyone to go on that one food diet and juice cleanse. I had tried it resulting in me being hungry all the time and I gained 2kg right the moment I started eating.
There are many losing weight ways out there which I find ridiculous and absolutely not going to work.  Some will even cause serious side effects. However, I shall not go on and on since I guess you might have different opinions on what works.

However, I think everyone just want to lose weight to look healthy and not skinny.

TIPS FOR LOSING WEIGHT WITHOUT STARVATION

I think the trend of diet now is to have those healthy looking body. While many wanted to achieve that kind of body, not many are willing to do exercise for it. So in order to reduce weight, most will modify their food intake or go for surgery.


Here are few tips on gaining a healthy body.


Be realistic

No matter how much you starve yourself it is going to work because your bones structure is like that. So, be real on how much you can lose to stay healthy. If you already can see bones and already fainting few times per day, you are not supposed to lose more than that. So check your body built first.

Our body grow cell fats if you eat too much food containing sugar, carbs and not good fats but it will only shrink when you lose fats.  It means the cells has the potential to grow bigger if you do not care about your food intake.  So do not grow more fats cells by eating too much of those kind of food.


Be patient
Everything takes time; it is not a one day thing. The same goes for the reason you gain weight. Have a healthy diet and lifestyle. Check what’s your recommended calories intake is. Everyone is different depending on your lifestyle and body mass. So, do not try those celebrities’ diets just because this people look gorgeous with their "S" or hourglass body. There is no fast track.


Word of caution, losing weight too fast can cause you to have stretch marks and flabby skin so don't lose it too fast.  Nothing good comes from a roller coaster meals and lifestyle.




Be natural

What I mean here is eating natural food compare to those pills and diet drinks. I prefer natural method which is eating real stuff. Chewing on real vegetables, fishes and carbohydrates are way better than eating sugar laden drinks. It is slow but it works and the effect last long. It is also good to cultivate good eating habits than relying on those unproven methods.

When you are eating outside, please check for the hidden sugar, carbohydrates and trans fats. It is usually hidden in many of the so called “healthy food”-salad, fishes, sauces, desserts and diet drinks.


I did calculate my food calories daily and I don’t eat more than my recommended intake. That is the reason for maintaining weight. I do eat desserts, cakes and fried stuff but that is once a week and not daily. Don’t feel guilty because one meal of dessert is not going to make you fat. Just remember not to go overboard with your counting calories.



However, if you are going to do exercise heavily that day, do eat more. Don’t fix yourself to only one calories intake or should I say don't starve yourself because nothing good comes from starving yourself. It will only result in you gaining more fat after that.

REVIEW ON SHILLS MIRACLE LIFT FACIAL FIRMING MASK


A firm and V shape face is the reason that some people look so young. I have reached the age where I start to get worried about sagging skin, losing firmness and that just add to the list of goals for my skin.

No one wants to look older than their real age so trying to prolong my youth is sure important. In the quest to always look youthful, I stumble upon this firming mask for a V shape face.   There are many companies coming out with mask like this to help with the shaping of the face.  Of course, it can’t change the bones structures but it can help to firm up the skin.



REVIEW SHILLS MIRACLE LIFT FACIAL FIRMING MASK
SHILLS MIRACLE LIFT FACIAL FIRMING MASK

review SHILLS MIRACLE LIFT FACIAL FIRMING MASK


Here is the ingredients list: NP700, Purified water, glycerin, Juniper Berries, Anise and Rosemary.




So, wear this to sleep and do not talk when you are wearing one as this is might make your face 'run out of shape'.  One can wear it maximum for 8 hours.  Do not wear too long as the mask will hurt your skin if you do not follow the instruction.


SHILLS MIRACLE LIFT FACIAL FIRMING MASK
SHILLS MIRACLE LIFT FACIAL FIRMING MASK
Remove the plastic it attach on before placing the hydrogel side to the face.  It has the herbal smell of mixture of rosemary and juniper.  It is actually quite comfortable since it is rather cooling with the mask on.

The mask is made from hydrogel type so it stick to the face once you place it on the face.  Unless you really move a lot during sleeping or you open your mouth, chances it is will stay intact.


SHILLS MIRACLE LIFT FACIAL FIRMING MASK
SHILLS MIRACLE LIFT FACIAL FIRMING MASK

It makes my skin feel more firm especially the jaw line area and doesn't make me breakout.  If you really want a better effect, it is best to use this twice per week for a month.  The jaw line area will be more firm and less double chin.  I mean it is way cheaper than going for surgery.

So here is the result of the mask.
