REVIEW ON VICTORIA SWEDEN EGG WHITE FACIAL CARE SOAP (LANOLIN-ÄGG-TVÅL)

Victoria Sweden Egg White Facial Care Soap was popular in Korean in 2015 because of the egg white properties.  In Asian,  Victoria Sweden Egg White Facial Care Soap was featured on Astro’s shopping channel, GoShop recently.

It is a popular products because it was used even by the Swedish Royal family since 1924.  Of course, I was excited when this  Egg pack arrived on my door.  Before that, a little information on the product.

VICTORIA SWEDEN EGG WHITE FACIAL CARE SOAP  (LANOLIN-ÄGG-TVÅL)
VICTORIA SWEDEN EGG WHITE FACIAL CARE SOAP  (LANOLIN-ÄGG-TVÅL)


ABOUT

Victoria Scandinavian Soap AB is a Swedish family run company that was founded in 1905 in Helsingborg Sweden. Since the early 1900s we have produced soap of the highest quality in our soap factory. Our long tradition and experience has led to long standing brand names such as: Cremosin, Tallba, Victoria and Lanolin-Ägg-Tvål. We also manage the development and production of soap for private labels in all shapes and sizes. Since 1924 we have had the honor of being the purveyor to his Majesty the King.


LANOLIN-ÄGG-TVÅL

For generations Swedish women have been mixing their own facial masks that contain glycerin, rose water and egg whites. Inspired by this we developed the popular Eggwhite Facial Soap. This unique facial soap with lanoline and rose water cleanses the pores and gives you a fantastic complexion.


Sweden 's Egg white Facial Soap has been a part of healthy caring for the skin in Sweden for generations. Originally prepared by Swedish women at home, an eggwhite facial was a weekly tradition to maintain pure and glowing skin. With extracts from plants as cleansing ingredients and added goat milk, the Eggwhite Facial Soap helps to maintain your skin in soft conditions. Suitable for use in the morning as face soap as well as face pack in the evening, the wide usage of this product is convenient and suitable for everyone.


Directions:
The most fabulous thing is that it can be used as:

Facial Mask: Add some water to the soap in the palms of your hands and work up a rich lather. Smooth the creamy foam onto face and neck and let it stay on for about 5 minutes before you rinse off with comfortably warm water. Gently dry with a soft towel and a clean and fresh feeling will appear.

For daily cleansing: Add some water to the soap in the palms of your hands and work up a rich lather. Thoroughly massage the foam over your face and neck. Then rinse off after 3minutes with comfortably warm water and dry with a soft towel.


Ingredients: Sodium Palmate, Sodium Palm Kernelate, Aqua, Olea Europaea fruit oil, Palm Acid, Glycerin, Lauryl Glucoside, Parfum, Sodium Chloride, Palm Kernel Acid, Lanolin, Sodium Lactate, Lecithin (E 322), Tetrasodium EDTA, Tetrasodium Etidronate, CI 14700 (Red No 504), CI 77891 (Titaniumdioxide), Rosa Damascena (Rose water), Albumen

The soap has smell of faint rose mix with oil.  It was lathered easily and it has abundance of soft foam.  Cleansing my face with it was easy since it removes and cleanses all the makeup easily.

My face feels really clean, tight but not dry.  However, application of moisturiser after that is a must or else my skin will start feeling dry.

 I think this soap will work well during summer, in hot weather, oily and combination skin type.  Remember to apply moisturiser after that.  Personally, I don't think it will work that well as egg mask for dry skin type.

As for cleaning the pores it does work =) .  My pores are smaller after two weeks

It is multifunction soap and it is easy to bring it for travel since the soap can act as face cleanser and body soap =).  Men will love it for sure.

SKINCARE TIPS: ACNE PRONE SKIN CARE

Although it is really hot because I am living in the equator, it is especially scorching hot this few months.  There are many tourist coming to Tioman Island for the beach and for snorkelling because the beaches are really beautiful now.  While the weather is fun to dress in summer clothes but the harmful sunrays are not for your skin.

Here is what you can do to prevent skin troubles and to protect your skin.  If you have been reading my blog for a long time, you will know I had bad pimply skin and sensitivity.  My face was like a living volcano and not mentioned how bad I felt.

That aside, taking the opportunities to thank you dear readers who constantly visit and leave comments here. =)  I don't think I can last this long without support from you and brands who are kind to me.  Some of your kind comments really brings tears to my eyes.

I am sorry for lack of update this month as I wasn't well but I will try to do my best =)   Thank you for liking my long posts too.  I was actually afraid if many will find that I write too much and bore you with too much information. .

SKINCARE TIPS: ACNE PRONE SKIN CARE

So here is my current tips on summer and for acne prone skin.


1. Do not use those harsh bar soap on your face

Those soap are usually harsh on the face and drying so using it can cause the skin to develop sensitivity and throw the skin balance out of the window.  If you really love soap, maybe go for handmade soap which are usually more gentle and tailored made for skin.

2. Eat fruits and vegetables containing antioxidant
This is a no brainer that vegetables and fruits containing vitamin A, E, K, C and B helps to protect the skin and heal the skin.  Of course healthy skin shows those glowy skin.  Besides that do go for those fish oil which are good for skin.  Try to eat less sugar,alcohol and red meat as those are contributor to ageing.  Do add green tea in your daily water intake because in long terms, it will show on your skin.


3.Exfoliate your skin with AHA, BHA or natural ingredients such as vitamin A or C
There are many types of exfoliate products out there.  I will steer away far from harsh exfoliant such as grainy scrubs and nuts' shells.  Clay masks, peeling gel and cleansing tools such as those 3D or 4D brush are better for sensitive skin.

Tearing your skin is not exfoliate, it is torture.
Besides, it is not necessary to go for exfoliant that contains high chemicals as irritated red skin will just spend its time to heal the skin than accept beneficial ingredients.

Exfoliate skin is to clean the skin without making it red.


4.Use sunscreen and other skin protectant
Do use protectant and go for 40-50 SPF and go for light emulsion type of sunscreen or sunblock as those are for daily use.  You will only need those 120 Pa++ Japanese sunscreen when you are going for beach activities.  High spf actually means more chemical and thick kind of texture which not everyone skin can take it. If it is not used up for protecting your skin from the sun, then it will just clog your pores.


5. Oily skin, Combination skin and sensitive skin
People will always think that sensitive skin means dry skin.  Then oily skin must not be sensitive.  Third, combination can only mean oily at T-zone and dry at the other area.  I can tell you that is usually the wrong concept of people trying to impart their views.

Because of believing what these people told me, it had caused a lot of problems for my skin.

My skin is acne prone, sensitive and also combination of oily at nose area and normal at other place.  It is a wrong conception that one with normal skin can't have acne.  Most acne products are targeting oily skin which made it very harsh on sensitive acne prone skin.  I had learnt it the hard way.

So, read through the ingredients and know your skin very well before spending your hard earned money on products.  For me, I always avoid benzoyl peroxide.  It just doesn't work no matter how many times I had tried it.


6.Avoid eating too much supplement

There is no evidence that eating supplement help the skin in long run. So, that is why most sellers are frustrated trying to sell me supplements which I don't eat.  As long I make sure I eat healthy meaning lots of vegetables, fruits and fish there is no point burdening the liver to get rid of those toxic caused supplements.  I was there and I can say eating supplement doesn't help my skin at all.

Another thing about eating those supplement for acne. It will come back once you stop!



There is no fast track towards healing acne because acne is not just a temporary condition.  Don't wait for it to disappear on its own.  So, treat it while it is not serious and don't wait for a one day cure all for acne because this kind of medicine hasn't been created yet.






No products recommendation here.  What I have here is my personal opinions on what I had tried over the years.

REVIEW ON MELVITA NECTAR BRIGHT BRIGHTENING CONCENTRATE


Hi beauties,Some time ago, I put up news about Melvita Nectar bright brightening concentrate Here .

I think it is an Asian thing where we really dislike 'tanning' and 'burning' our skin for darker tone because we prefer lighter skin even if we have olive skin.  Of course, I do not mean bleaching our skin to be as white as sheet.

Asian loves fair skin tone and healthy porcelain skin.  So, it is common that many people here like brightening products to even the skin tone and correct those dark spots.  Regardless of age, dark spots can form in any type of skin so it is best to use brightening products to help with it.

What I have here the famous French brand, Melvita Nectar Bright Brightening Concentrate for review today.

MELVITA NECTAR BRIGHT BRIGHTENING CONCENTRATE
Melvita Nectar Bright Brightening Concentrate



Brightening Concentrate – Targeted corrective action


The Melvita Brightening Concentrate brings together a complex of 5 white flowers* with illuminating properties and a brown alga extract with brightening properties, for complete corrective action on uneven skin tone.


Usage Instructions: Every morning and evening, after applying essence and before your moisturizer,put on a few drops of Brightening Concentrate using the dropper applicator. Focus on areas of uneven skin tone. 

Tested under dermatological supervision.Non-comedogenic.For adult use only.

99% of the total ingredients are from natural origin.

53% of the total ingredients are from Organic Farming.

Ingredients for MELVITA NECTAR BRIGHT BRIGHTENING CONCENTRATE

The bottle is opaque white and it is made from glass so be extra careful not to drop it to the floor from a very high position.  Other than that, it is quite sturdy.

There is also the silver coloured dropper for easy application.




What I could say is this concentrate is closer to ampoule than essence or serum because of the texture and performance from this pure white bottle.  The concentrate smell super amazing with floral scent that soothing and calming to the senses.  One only need about two drops for each application to see results. The clear concentrate texture is thicker than water and absorb well into the skin and is not sticky at all.
MELVITA NECTAR BRIGHT BRIGHTENING CONCENTRATE
MELVITA NECTAR BRIGHT BRIGHTENING CONCENTRATE

One can use this as a spot treatment for part of the face that needs more brightening up and to lighten the dark spots on the face.  I use it on my stubborn dark spots I have been having it for years and it is lightening up gradually.  The results probably look more obvious on the photos because of lighting and because my dark spots are not that dark.  Red acne scars and lighter colour will fade faster.  Results might varies with your type of skin too.

**Words of caution is do not apply it on skin that is still erupting with acne or pimples. Brightening products is not meant to treat acne so choose the right products for your skin.
** Not for those allergic to lemon


Overall, if you are looking for brightening, gentle, organic fragrance, organic and natural products with Ecocert, then do try Melvita Nectar brightening concentrate.





Melvita Nectar Bright Brightening Concentrate retails at RM230 for 30ml.

REVIEW ON 23 YEARS OLD PERGILLUS 15SEC FOAM CLEANSER

From my Korean haul Here, I bought this 23YEARS OLD Pergillus 15 Sec. Foam Cleanser out of curiosity.  Of course the 'gum stuck on the face' was the main reason I bought it.  After all, I do like to try something weird and it sure is interesting right?

23 YEARS OLD PERGILLUS 15SEC FOAM CLEANSER
23 YEARS OLD PERGILLUS 15SEC FOAM CLEANSER
The tube comes wrap with plastic. =)




Pergillus 15 Sec. Foam Cleanser


By fermenting all-natural ingredients, we've incorporated a non-irritating, safe to use formula with the magic of a thick, sticky cleansing foam that bonds to the skin to remove dirt & grime even deep within the pores only to leave healthier, clear skin behind with a hydration barrier to protect & prevent.


Pergillus 15 Sec. Foam Cleanser is made with 4 key ingredients as well as all-natural ingredients full of nutrients for a pure, safe to use formula without irritants and artificial chemicals. The 4 key ingredients collaborate with each other to form the signature stickiness that makes the Pergillus 15Sec. Foam Cleanser so unique.

The stickiness allows it to closely blanket the skin for a deep cleanse down to each and every pore while all-natural ingredients such as beeswax creates a protective hydration barrier to prevent dryness & to protect from irritants.  So don't cleanse with just foam anymore, cleanse the easy, smart way with Pergillus !


Recommend
Pergillus 15 Sec. Foam Cleanser is recommended for people in want of :
A non-irritating, deep cleanser.
A simpler, easier solution for skin care.
A pure product that will cleanse & hydrate.





How to use:
To remove natural makeup, use the PERGILLUS 15sec. foam as the 1st cleanser and rinse with water. For heavier makeup, use the PERGILLUS 15sec. foam as the 2nd cleanser to follow your normal routine.

1) Apply an adequate amount of the PERGILLUS 15sec. Foam Cleanser to the face and massage for 15 seconds.

2) Let the thread technology do all
the work & watch as it magically removes the built-up gunk deep within the pores !

3) Enjoy clear skin with long-lasting hydration, and flaunt your flawless
skin !


TIP: Wet and roll for 15 seconds and follow with a gentle patting massage for more stickiness & even more fun !

23 YEARS OLD PERGILLUS 15SEC FOAM CLEANSER
23 YEARS OLD PERGILLUS 15SEC FOAM CLEANSER


The cleanser has fermented ingredients such as Aspergillus/Rice Ferment Extract and Saccharomyces/Cordyceps Sinensis Ferment Filtrate - . It is actually cleanser paste that comes that turns into foam with the presence of water. Apply the paste on the face and apply a little water. Circle about twice and you can see the sticky gummy texture that resembles cheese.

Personally, the gummy texture disappeared if you put too much water. It can also disappear once you put water the second time and after 1minute. If you want more gummy texture, then put more paste on the face and just add a little amount of water, not too little or not too much. With enough practice, you will get more gummy texture that resembles the video. With this cleanser, one only need about 20seconds to clean the face.

23 YEARS OLD PERGILLUS 15SEC FOAM CLEANSER
23 YEARS OLD PERGILLUS 15SEC FOAM CLEANSER


The cleanser that look like glue might scare you but the gummy texture doesn’t feel sticky at all. In fact, it just feels like any regular cleanser. It is also more hydrating to my face compared to other foam cleanser. My face does feel really clean and hydrated. This is the first time I find a cleanser that cleans so well. Even my family members love it now because it cleans so well and hydrating.

As for the smell, it has a faint smell of fruits which I think most will like or at least don’t mind.  Unless you have very dry skin, I think many will like this cleanser especially for summer and oily skin type.

Update: it has ph of 9 so it is not ideal for those looking into ph balanced cleanser

PLACES TO EAT IN MIDVALLEY GARDENS KUALA LUMPUR

If you are in Midvalley Gardens and wonders what to eat, here are few places that I patronised before.

1.  THE ZUN EXPRESS

The menu at The Zun Express


interior of The Zun Express

lotus leaf rice


The rice is wrapped with lotus leaf which is presentation wise look appealing to me. I was glad that it is not small and look just like the photos. The rice is of medium texture and it is fragrant with the smell of lotus leaf. There is mince meat in it and it has a good portion for a big eater like me.
The Osmanthus Jelly


The Osmanthus Jelly is soft and it melted into my mouth. No bad and this is the first time I see restaurant use osmanthus to make dessert. I do like the taste and it is good thought that the waiter bring this the last as we were about to finish our rice. I bet it wouldn't taste good or cold enough if the desserts were brought in the same time as the lotus rice.

The green tea is not bad and luckily it is not the one with jasmine as I do not enjoy jasmine in my green tea.

Service is not bad and fast. The waiter is also courteous.

SET B
Lotus leaf Rice, green tea and Osmanthus Jelly RM18.80 per set
service tax of 10%
Government Tax 6%
So after adding it would be around RM23

Non Halal


2.  NANA'S GREEN TEA





Locomoco hamburg

Thin matcha green tea hot


I do love fried chicken very much but of course I can't eat that everyday without any side effect especially when it will concern my skin condition. I break out and scars easily from unbalanced diet thanks to my genes.
So most of the time I would prefer to choose Japanese food.  Let's just say that I have a huge stomach and so I went to eat at Nana's Green Tea at Midvalley.  It is near the Cold Storage and at the same row of Nyonya Colors.  

I am not sure for dinner set but lunch set is between 11.00am- 2.30pm.  I think it is cheaper than ordering ala carte.  There are about 10 sets to choose from so I went blur on what to chose.  My friend suggested me to take Set A which is the Locomoco Hamburg since it is their most famous Set.  Once can choose the drink that they want from the bottom of the menu.  Rest ensure that the drink are all good ones.


Locomoco hamburg portion is as big as the photos shown.  I thought that I would probably need to order two but was happy when I see the portion of the food.  The one oval is actually potato.
Okay, I am not going to lie that the food taste so amazing that I am going to faint. Truthfully say, I don't really like sauce on the burger because it is too strong of vinegar+tomato+water or something.  I don't really enjoy the sauce and it is the only thing that I left on the plate.

The meat is actually soft and not fatty so it is a great health option.  The rice maybe too much for a normal girl to eat but it is just nice for me since it is made of multi-grain that is sure to make one feel satisfied for rice lover.  It good health option but I am sure that some may find it hard and tastes like some rough sand inside the mouths. Vegetables is fresh and adding a small potato makes it look cute.

I chose thin matcha green tea hot because this seems like a new one for me.  The smell is actually light and not as fragrant other type of tea but of course again matcha is good for health when you drink it in warm.  I don't like sugar so did not add one.  I know I am weird.  You could add some topping like ice cream with extra charge of RM1.80 per topping.

I wanted to order dessert but too bad I am already full.  I will probably come back next time for the dessert because I prefer to order few types of desserts and just share instead of eat one only.

Lunch set is RM19.90 not including gov and service tax.  After tax it should be about RM26.


3. KYUNG JOO KOREAN RESTAURANT







This is not the first time I came to this Kyung Joo Korean Restaurant but that was before I started blogging.  I brought some of my friends here before and they immediately fell in love with Korean food.  This is the third time I brought few friends to this restaurant again.  This restaurant never fail to impress my friends.  It is perhaps of the Korean fever?

This is a non-halal Korean food restaurant in Midvalley. They are most famous for the barbecue but because we wanted somthing filling that we had decided to just order this whole set of kimchi hot pot, the rice, a plate of beef and also the side dishes. You can actually refill the side dishes but too bad that all of us are too full to be able to asked for refill at the end of the dinner.

The workers are mostly non Malaysian but they can understand and speak English. =) Just speak clearly. They are very polite and bow to us the moment we entered the restaurant.

The kimchi hot pot contains seafood (two prawns, two la la, squid, some crystal looking vermicelli and lots of kimchi vegetables). The kimchi is the common type which is the cabbage kimchi. I like the kimchi soup very much but we couldn't finish the soup because we were so full. Everyone enjoyed the hot pot very much although we wanted to order the barbecue plate if we could.

Korean Green Tea RM3.80 (refillable if it is warm green tea since you are given tea bag)
Korean Citron Honey Tea RM6.80
Strawberry Shake RM7.80
Ice Water RM 0.50
Special Set RM98.80

4. NYONYA COLORS MIDVALLEY


This is a halal Pernakan restaurant in the groundfloor of Midvalley Gardens.  One need to line up and know the number of the table so it is better to get a seat first before lining up to make the order. They will send the order to the table later. The nasi lemak is wrapped with the banana leaves and it will be heat up for the customer unless you requested that you want to eat it cold. It is quite small but it is really tasty considering that a common food such as nasi lemak is also well-made. The rice smell of fresh coconut milk and the sambal is just nice. It is not too spicy or salty. The rice comes with half hard-boiled egg, anchovies and groundnuts. RM2.50


ABC is cooling especially on hot weather such as Malaysia.  There are generous of amount of cendol, jelly and also groundnut.  The cendol jelly is not fragrant but it soft.  The ice cream is really soft and melt quickly. Overall, this is average.
RM4



Mee jawa gravy is thick and a little salty but it goes well with the plain ingredients. The yellow mee is cooked perfectly that it is not too soft or hard and it goes so well with the jawa gravy. The portion is of medium size and I think that the prawn cracker that comes with is okay. Too bad that there is no prawn on the crackers or else it will be better.

5. PORTUGUESE GRILL @ OASIS FOOD COURT





If eating at the restaurant is not your thing then you can try this portuguese grill at the food court.

This place is a cheaper option for those who are afraid of cut throat price in shopping malls. If you are here during lunch hour, then it will be packed with people ordering lunch.  Other than that, there will plenty of places to sit.  It is a self order place where you choose the food and then wait for your food.  There are many choices and I chose lala with stingray. Price is sure affordable.  The wait is about 15minutes from the time you order so I think that is good.
Food arrived warm and wrapped up with aluminum foil.  The smell of the stingray with lala is good. The sambal is fragrant, spicy and savoury which goes so well with the rice. There could be more rice to eat together with the sauces.   Lala is a little overcooked or because it was put in together at the same time as the stingray and so it is was a little chewy and hard.  However, the stingray is surprisingly delicious. The meat is soft making it easy to chew.   The vegetables which is the lady fingers was also soft and nice.
No wonder many prefer this stalls over other stalls.
RM8.90.

REVIEW ON LIVYOUNG INTENSE BRIGHTENING FACIAL MASK

While I always wish that there is four seasons, the truth is there is only the hot season or raining season here.  Now, it is the scorching hot season to the point I turned literary turned red even in a room.  It just feel like a sauna everyday and it had not been raining for a week already. Even bathing 5 times a day doesn't help.

I was having rashes twice this year and it doesn't cure until I went to see the doctor. *sob*
That aside, thanks to Hishop and LivYoung for sending me a box of facial mask. This just what I need for such weather.

The white box contains 10 pieces of sheet masks in it.

Here is the list of ingredients.

The mask has thin plastic sheets to protect the mask so remove them before applying.







The sheet mask fits my face with extra at the side of my face.  The sheet mask is slightly thick so it does stick to my face well and not slip down the face.
The essence in the face has jelly consistency and so it won't drip if if you sit upright.
It has the smell of cucumber and the smell gradually disappear after 30 minutes.  It feels like applying slices of cucumber on the face.

It does moisturise and calms my skin.  My face is slighter brighter after using the mask but of course you will need to maintain using it on every alternate days to achieve better effect.



LivYoung has other healthcare products besides skincare products.  Do have a look.

Livyoung Intense Brightening Facial Mask retails at RM149 at Hishop.
