REVIEW ON MIACARE ACNE PATCH DAY&NIGHT(9+9'S) AND GIVEAWAY

Hydrocolloid patches for pimples are good alternative than using our dirty hands to pop our skin that can potentially leave scars. Today, I am reviewing Acne Patch Day & Night (9+9’s) from Miacare.

There are 9 patches for night and 9 patches for day.  Both patches are seal individually so to avoid contamination of the products.  I think it is really for hygiene reason.  There is also graphic photos to show the steps on how to use which is really useful for first time user.

The day patches are thinner and not obvious on the skin unless you are standing very near me.
The night pacthes are stronger in terms of absorption of pus but of course it look more obvious on the skin.

Change it once the patches turn white or after 12 hours. If you do not have pimples, then it just stay looking like that without turning white.

There is no smell and once it is on the face, you can't see it.  I don't have pimples with visible pus but as you can see here, the area is red and hard, so I applied the Day patch on that area. The patches did a wonderful job of reducing the redness and suck up the pus from the under the skin!

KOREAN SKINCARE TIPS 3

Beauties,



I am really excited to share with you on some skincare tips I got from watching some of the Korean beauty shows.  Some of it are really useful and I have personally tried it myself.  For the past months, I have been under the weather and thus fewer posts XP. (lack of motivation)

Along that, I was actually thinking if anyone cares at all.  I think I wouldn't still be writing if not for readers who say they love, care and find my blog helpful.  Thank you again for patronising my blog and also leave comments.


So, while I feel motivated to write, I decided to share this skincare tips.  I already wrote about skincare tip and skincare tips2 so do check it out.


I am horrible in doing makeup and that is the reason I care more about using skincare products and the techniques.  I prefer to go out bare face than do the 'no makeup look'.



1.  The whitening pack mask-using powered red beans+ water and leave it on the face for 30 minutes.

2.  The cleansing- add aloe vera to the foam cleanser for a better clean and calm the acne/trouble skin.

3. Apple mask-apply the grated apple on the skin for 2minutes to peel the skin.  sensitive skin can wash of after 1min

4. Vitamin C- use vitamin C serum after the peeling. some use the vitamin C from body shop.  I love this Vitamin C serum from Korea.use vitamin at night or you will risk getting pigmentation and dark spots.

5.  Massage your face and neck for better absorption of skincare.

6.  Beer for soaking your feet to remove dead skin

7.  You can actually mix two types of cleanser for better cleansing.  Saw the girl actually mix a pore cleanser with a hydrating cleanser.

8.  Vitamin E doesn't really help with the scars.  Some people can get irritated by it.



It is just sharing here.  Opinions expressed here are my own and honest as always.

As usual, Phyto has such futuristic bottle and I love the design.

The shampoo bottle has a bigger cylindrical look but it contain the same amount of shampoo.Becareful when you pour the content because it is filled up to the cap and the solution is a watery.

Next good reason is because there is no thickener to thicken the texture of the shampoo which might irritate and clogged the scalp of people who has oily scalp.  So, next time, do check if the texture of the shampoo.

The shampoo foam up very little almost none at all but it does not mean that it is not cleaning the hair well.  In fact, the shampoo really cleanses my hair very well without any irritation.  My scalp is not too dry but very well balanced and I love it!  Even without any conditioner, my hair feels really soft and light.  It doesn't dry my hair at all even if I use it everyday.  How to fall in love with a shampoo that is so gentle, cleanses so well, smell so herbal and fabulous?

The shampoo itself is so good on its own that it save my pocket for I don't need to use conditioner or all those sort of hair mask at all.  Phyto brands also mentioned that there is no need for conditioner or other hair products for oily scalp as it can worsen the hair condition.  How not to like a brand that provide such honest and helpful tips?



I also loses lesser hair with every wash after I started using this Phytopanama daily balancing shampoo compare to before. Love this shampoo very much!




Next time if you have problem with your hair, do check out Phyto brands. Phyto sure has many really good amazing natural products and many usually return after their first try of their products.  I am sold too after trying their products. =)

REVIEW ON TIMELESS TRUTH INSTANTANEOUS BRIGHTENING COOLING MASK

Hi Beauties,

This review is overdued.I just realise that it is sitting inside my draft for so long...hahahaha.
I got this mask recently from my haul here.  It is quite a famous mask from Taiwan.  Since, the weather is so hot, I decided to just try this cooling mask because I just can't stand the heat.  It is either so hot that even the ground cracked and the trees wilt or worried that it might flood anytime because it rains non stop.  So, to feel as if I am putting my face inside the freezer I decided to get this mask.


TIMELESS TRUTH INSTANTANEOUS BRIGHTENING COOLING MASK

TIMELESS TRUTH INSTANTANEOUS BRIGHTENING COOLING MASK


I do love the metallic blue packet.  The mask sheet is quite thick and it is durable.  It has cooling effect on the skin after I applied on the skin for about 2 minutes.  I can feel the cooling effect through the time the mask was on my face.  It does brighten up and hydrate my skin for few hours. My pores temporary look smaller too.

TIMELESS TRUTH INSTANTANEOUS BRIGHTENING COOLING MASK

I think it is not bad for the price.  It is good to use to reduce the size of the pores and for the cooling feeling that the mask provides.  A sure treat for the face for a weather or in summer.


Timeless Truth Instantaneous Brightening Cooling Mask
Timeless Truth Instantaneous Brightening Cooling Mask (Buy 1 free 1) RM8

There is 6% GST tax.

NEW HEADER&BLOG DESIGN



Dearest readers,
Thanks for staying with me.  I was sick for the past few weeks and have not recovered yet.   Today, just wanted to share about this new header and template.


great skin&life blog header





Do you like my new template and header?  I know that for the past few years I have been using some free header and template.  I lost the photoshop software along with the laptop.  Besides, I am not good in editing my photos so that is one of the reason that many has to bear with my ugly header for quite some time until someone told me that many bloggers around the world are using the same header.  Thus, I changed it to a another header temporary until I come up with this one.

Thanks to readers who leave lovely comments in my blog and brands that has been very kind to me too.

I had messed up a lot of my previous free template so I have decided to discard it.  It was quite hard working with a free template and it took me a month to fix that up.

Currently, I am just using one of the simple blogger template. I edited, changes and add in some build in. It is easier to work with the template that blogger offer than with some free templates that only allows you to edit in HTML codes which just look like bunches of foreign language to me. > <

Do let me know if my blog is working fine or if you would like me to change the font or size for easier reading. I am not sure how it looks for your.

I am not a programmer and many of the changes are made with help from googling.  Some tips offer in some site doesn't work.  I added the drop down box but still figuring out how to actually link it without using the labels. Unlike Wordpress, Blogger doesn't have many function to offer.

If anyone wanted to edit their template, consider the concept, header, colours and words.  I think that itself has taken me quite a lot of time to just work on that.  Make sure you do put lots of thoughts into your header.


So, here it is. Hopefully you will like it.


No product or service review here.  Opinions expressed here are my own and honest as always.
