REVIEW ON CURE NATURAL AQUA GEL

Hi beauties,

If you have preference for gentle exfoliating products to get rid of dead skin cells and to improve the texture of your skin without using those grainy scrubs then do have a look at this skincare products from Japan.

Here is the review on the Japanese Cure Natural Aqua Gel on which it sold 1 bottle every 12 seconds.

Cure Natural Aqua Gel bottle is made from plastic and the liquid inside comes out in form of thicker clear gel water which should be applied after cleansing on a dry skin.  Cure Natural Aqua Gel is made from 90% water so it is gentle to the skin for physical exfoliation. Although some people said it doesn't work and those are just gimmicks, I do think that it helps with exfoliation especially for people who could not afford those expensive luxurious brush and too harsh to use grainy scrubs.

If you are one of those people that generally doesn't work that well with chemical peeling that dissolving skin protein with strong acids (AHA, BHA, fruits acids, glycolic acids, etc.) then one can try Cure Natural Aqua Gel which removes those dead skin gently. There is no need to apply pressure to 'peel' the skin off. I just gently move my fingers in circle and if there are dead cells, it comes out in forms of tiny balls.

My skin does look smoother, brighter and softer after using Cure Natural Aqua Gel.  However, one with skin problem such as acne should avoid using it since it can aggravate skin.  Cure Natural Aqua Gel is for cleansing the texture from some dead skin cells trap on top of the skin.  It doesn't have any fragrance, colour and preservative so one can use on your body as well.

I use it once every week. It is not recommended to use daily since it is a waste of products to keep removing the dead skin every day.

I know that peeling gel get bad reputation that it is just some sort of balls and some people are still adamant about it being useless but then rave about having sheet mask doing miracles on their skin immediately which I think both doesn't have any true unbiased scientific studies on them.  I do feel that peeling gel is probably the same as clay mask that helps to reduce sebum and clean the skin better but of course it is not a miracle. So, there is my take on peeling gel.

Overall, Cure Natural Aqua Gel is a gentle physical exfoliator to brighten the skin.  However, not recommend if you have active acne on your skin.  The Cure water treatment cream is more suitable as a gentle moisturiser for acne prone skin since it is water based.

REVIEW ON I'M FROM GINSENG SERUM

Hi ☺

Ginseng is a highly prized ingredient for beauty since Ancient time.  Koreans love their red ginseng for the ability to slow down the aging process.  So, here is the I'M FROM Ginseng Serum which is another affordable organic product from I'M From which is famous for their Honey Mask.

I am really excited as ginseng is a traditional beauty ingredients for anti aging and it also an ingredient that works really well with me.

Features
7.98% Ginseng Extract
Formulated with 7.98% concentrated ginseng extract, the Ginseng Serum is designed to naturally enhance blood circulation to make your complexion look more lively while replenishing the necessary nourishments for healthier, younger skin.


6-year-old 7.98% Ginseng extract because ginseng extract is made with a moisture content of less than 14%, it is possible to store the taste, scent and active ingredients of ginseng in a concentrated state for a long time. Meticulous control of temperature, time and pressure is required until one ginseng is made into ginseng extract. Through this process, a new active ingredient unique to ginseng extract was discovered. The I’m from rejuvenating serum is formulated with the concentrate of high-quality ginseng extract at its purest.

From Geumsan County, South Chungcheong Province Korea’s Geumsan County is home to a species of Korean ginseng that has a history of 1,500 years. Due to its great natural environment, it has been evaluated as the ideal location to cultivate ginseng of the highest quality in the world. Geumsan ginseng contains about 30 various saponins, including ginsenoside, while western ginseng on the other hand contains only 13~15 kinds of saponin, which is half of that of Geumsan ginseng. The I’m from rejuvenating serum is formulated ginseng extract created from the best ginseng cultivated from Geumsan County.

** Ginsenoside : Contrary to Saponin, which is found in an abundance of various other plants, this is a component that carries special pharmacological efficacy, found only in Ginseng.


How to use
1) After cleansing, apply an adequate amount to the face, and spread out into a thin layer using the tips of your fingers.
2) After applying the serum, gently wrap the area with the palms of the hand and use the heat to help the skin absorb the nutrients.
3) Use daily at morning and night for best results.

Ingredients
Water, Red Ginseng Extract, Butylene Glycol, Betaine, 1,2-Hexanediol, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Glycerin, Panax Ginseng Seed Oil, Glycyrrhiza Uralensis (Licorice) Root Extract, Paeonia Albiflora Root Extract, Angelica Gigas Root Extract, Rheum Palmatum Root Extract, Angelica Pubescens Root Extract, Schizonepeta Tenuifolia Extract, Phellodendron Amurense Bark Extract, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethiconol, Bis-PEG-18 Methyl Ether Dimethyl Silane, Ethoxydiglycol, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Tromethamine, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Ethylhexylglycerin, Hydrolyzed Glycosaminoglycans, Hyaluronic Acid, Glyceryl Polyacrylate, Adenosine, Disodium EDTA, Fragrance

3 Promises of I'm from 
Ingredient Transparency - Honest Materials - No Harmful Additives
We at I’m from keep these three promises for each and every product we deliver to you.

I'm From Ginseng Serum bottle is in form of a dropper which is from a heavy glass. Glass is used because plastic will cause deterioration in ginseng.  The dropper also makes it easy to control amount of product. Just becareful and don't drop it to the floor.  It is expensive.

The ginseng from the I'm From Ginseng Serum is from Geumsan County which has the highest quality product of red ginseng.


I'm From Ginseng Serum
I'm From Ginseng Serum


I can't help myself but I really love the smell of ginseng that it takes a lot of control to avoid consuming the serum which is actually meant for my skin.  The texture is liquid with viscous and has a brownish tint that turns transparent after absorption.  The serum does quickly absorb well into my skin and doesn't leave any residue. However, I don't think it will be enough to use it as the last product for those having dry skin type.  As for it, I find that it is hydrating enough for my normal zone and oiler T-zone.  The scent of ginseng does disappeared once the liquid dries so if one hate those earthy smell of roots or bark then it is good I guess.


I'm From Ginseng Serum does not sting or burn my skin no matter the amount I use. It also doesn't clogged my skin or cause me acne.  It doesn't get rid of acne if you have serious type of acne such as mine.  It does speed up the healing time of red acne scars and strengthen my skin barrier.  I also use it around my eyes.  It doesn't irritate my eyes area and help to firm up my eye area after four weeks of usage since I notice that my eyes are less puffy and baggy.

Traditional Korean ingredients for hanbang skincare such as Red Ginseng Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Panax Ginseng Seed Oil, Licorice Root Extract, Paeonia Albiflora Root Extract, Angelica Gigas Root Extract, Rheum Palmatum Root Extract, Angelica Pubescens Root Extract, Schizonepeta Tenuifolia Extract, Phellodendron Amurense Bark Extract are presented in this bottle of serum which really works well for my skin since I love traditional medicine.

There are some hydrating ingredients that help to firm up the skin such as Tromethamine, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Ethylhexylglycerin, Hydrolyzed Glycosaminoglycans, Hyaluronic Acid, Glyceryl Polyacrylate, Adenosine. Some of these ingredients increase the skin ability to bind with water which is the source of firmness for young looking skin.  Still do check the ingredients provide above for potential allergens.


Overall, I'm From Ginseng Serum is for someone looking for a light anti aging product, has the love for traditional medicinal ingredients (Hanbang), have no problem with the ingredients and like organic product.

REVIEW ON HIMALAYA PURE HERBS NEEM AND HIMALAYA PURE HERBS ASHVAGANDHA

Hi,

Today I wanted to share with you some herbs that I have using to deal with acne, pimples, fungal acne and etc.

Himalaya Herbals is an Aryuvedic brand in India and it is commonly available in South East Asia.  I have been using Himalaya Neem Cleanser and their Neem mask for more than 10 years.  I mentioned about their products because I love some of them.  I have bought most of their product myself, don't ever get paid for saying it except maybe some products to review in the future.

Himalaya pure herbs Neem and Himalaya Pure herbs Ashvagandha are two products that I have been using and consuming to get rid of acne whenever they pop up because I do not have much time for skincare, the stress damage my skin and also I pick on my pimples T_T.

Not much is known about these two Ayuvedic herbs-Neem and Ashvagandha.  Compared to other ingredients in the market, there is lack of hype from the beauty world probably because it is plants and is not popularized.

Himalaya Pure herbs Ashvagandha is called as Indian ginseng but then it is unrelated to ginseng. Other name are poison gooseberry or winter cherry.  Ashvagandha is rejuvenating herbs and helps the body to combat external stress, protect immune systems, combat insomnia, anti inflammatory, lower blood sugar, lower cholesterol, reduce depression and improves memories.    With the anti inflammatory and reduces stress, it is used for hormonal acne caused by sleeping late and stressed.  It won't work on those big cystic kind of acne but will reduce the severity.  One is supposed to consume one capsules twice a day for 12 days and then follow by Himalaya pure herbs Neem.  Ashvagandha  is best ingested to reap the most benefits from it.  It does helps to reduce sweating and my insomnia.

Himalaya pure herbs Neem is a wonderful herbs to treat acne and skin problems.  Many find using neem works even for their most annoying acne problem without the burns that will happens with some other skincare products.  After all, Neem is anti fungal, anti viral, anti bacteria, sedative, anti diabetic and contraceptive.  It is not recommended for children and also not for pregnant women.  I was digesting it for a month and also use the powder to apply on my face.  It really works to get rid of my acne and prevent the area from infection.  If you have oil skin, it helps to remove those sebum and prevent the same spot from breaking out again.  You can remove the capsules for the powder but it is bitter so you might not like it. I love using the neem mask as spot treatment at night since it does not burn the skin and it is just pure neem powder.

I did not use other new products when I was trying out Ashvagandha and Neem to find out their effectiveness.  It is a good herb to add into beauty routine since it amplified the capability of the skin to get rid of acne. You do need to avoid spicy food and very oily food when you are using neem to see the best results.

Neem and Ashvagandha are sure great ingredients for acne prone skin.  These two are another products from Himalaya that I recommend acne prone skin to take a look because it is affordable.  I am really impressed by capability of neem powder and this is one of those magic potion made for acne prone skin.

Overall, I will recommend Himalaya pure herbs Neem and Himalaya Pure herbs Ashvagandha for those having acne, stressful life, insomnia and do not have much time for a long skincare routine.  Himalaya is vegan brands and it is 100 percent natural with no other added substance.

REVIEW ON KLAIRS GENTLE BLACK DEEP CLEANSING OIL

If you know what is Klairs Gentle Black Deep Cleansing Oil, then welcome to the dark side of Asian Beauty skincare routine =).

I think there are many oil cleanser out there with different base which is not restricted to just mineral oil alone. Not everyone can use mineral oil based oil cleanser since it can cause break out so some look for other alternative.

One of the those oil cleanser that does not contain mineral oil is Klairs Gentle Black Deep Cleansing Oil.  Klairs is a Korean brand that has become really popular with their Klairs Supple Preparation Toner which is also one of my favourite toner.  I have tried almost everything from Klairs and products that I like are their toner and their Klairs Midnight Blue calming cream .

It is not just a cleansing oil, but the combination of natural black grains. Ingredients extracted from the nature will gently take care of your skin.

1) Black Bean Oil-Black bean helps to control the sebum production, increases the skin elasticity and provides a soothing effect

2) Black Sesame Oil- Black sesame prevents dehydration and skin aging while providing powerful antioxidant effects through various useful components such as Beta-carotene, Rinolenic acid, Sesamin, Sesaminol and Tocopherol.

3) Black Currant Seed Oil-Black Current Seed Oil strengthens the skins protective layer to prevent the evaporation of moisture from the skin. It promotes skin cell regeneration and provides antioxidant effects by containing various minerals.


How to use
1) Take an adequate amount of Gentle Black Deep Cleansing Oil onto the palms of dry hands.
Gently massage over dry face in order of forehead, nose and cheeks.
2) After massaging, do not wipe off with tissue but rinse off with lukewarm water for 2~3 times.

Klairs Gentle Black Deep Cleansing Oil came out as a liquid that smells really pleasant to me. It smells like some greenish forest kind of scent with hint of sweet berries but since scent is different to individual, I am not sure about how would others like it.  I like it.

The liquid is watery and turns into milk white once I use water to emulsify it.  It does remove the makeup well without irritating my skin. However, I would say that you do need to use a second cleanser to remove the film left on the skin after cleansing. It is oil cleanser that is made for dry skin type so I need to follow up with a second cleanser or else there I will feel a film on my skin.

I do like the ingredients in Klairs Black Deep Cleansing oil since it doesn't contain mineral oil which cause some form of allergic or clogged pores from it.  It contains moisturising ingredients such as Jojoba Seed Oil, Soybean Oil which is one of my favourite ingredients for skincare, Sesame Seed Oil , Black Currant Seed Oil,  Tocopheryl Acetate, Shea Butter , Carapa Guaianensis Seed Oil, Cranberry Seed Oil.  Carapa Guaianensis is a plant ingredient for Amazonian tribes to relieve muscular aches, reduce swelling and soothing for dry skin type.


Overall, Klairs Gentle Black Deep Cleansing Oil is a great first cleanser for dry skin and if you do have a second cleanser. It will be most suitable for dry skin or during winter.

FOOD REVIEW ON ROJAK AH CHAI TELUK INTAN, PERAK, MALAYSIA

Hi,

Here is a review to a place that many will get recommend when they are in Teluk Intan.
However, the stalls is now passed down to their children generation.  However, still I like to just let you know what I think about Rojak Ah Chai, Teluk Intan since I receive some comments on the food is not as delicious as what bloggers or TV food channel mentioned.

Rojak Ah Chai, Teluk Intan
Rojak Ah Chai, Teluk Intan
It is by the road side so I don't really fancy eating it at the stalls.  This is my first time having it there so I will suggest you to do takeaway than eating there.

Rojak Ah Chai, Teluk Intan
Rojak Ah Chai, Teluk Intan
There are only drink and rojak.  So not ad visible to eat that only for lunch or dinner.

Coconut juice.  It is alright. It does get water down by adding sugar in it.

Rojak Ah Chai, Teluk Intan
Rojak Ah Chai, Teluk Intan
Here is the rojak. Rojak is a salad fruits mixed into it and adding a little of the crunchy fried crackers. The one I have here is only the pineapple, crunchy crackers, sliced guava and jicama turnip.  It does have a special sauce in it which is the star of this stalls actually.

Rojak (fruit salad) is just meant as tea time or as snack so do not eat this in the morning as meals or else one will have stomach after that because pineapple does contains acid.  What I like the most about this stall is actually the crunchy crackers that I don't get else where for fruit rojak.

The place is actually near a primary Chinese school SRKJ(C) San Min 1 so it is easy to find this place.


Product retails for
Rojak RM4.50 or RM5
Drink RM1.50
