NEWS: THE LAUNCH OF A FREE BEAUTY SAMPLES WEBSITE MUFFIN.MY

Do you love a free website that you can redeem beauty products from writing reviews?  We finally have one in Malaysia now after waiting for so many years!  You can check my review HERE




NEWS: THE LAUNCH OF A FREE BEAUTY SAMPLES WEBSITE MUFFIN.MY




Muffin.my is officially launched! Introducing you Muffin.my, the first unbiased beauty review community in Malaysia, where we encourage members to share their beauty

experiences by writing reviews and earn points. From the points that they earned, they can redeem beauty products from our redemption catalog. Having more than 500 brands and 23,000 products in product library, Muffin.my connects beauty users with brands and products.



The Founder

The founder of Muffin.my, Ms Florence Chee shared h er story of the start up of the beauty community website. “Back in 2011, I was pursuing my professional degree in Manchester United. I was searching for beauty product review online and I found there was great information and reviews being shared in one of the top beauty review websites in the states, but I couldn’t find such website back in Malaysia. This is where I want to set up a one stop beauty review community in Malaysia,” she explained.

With a team of energetic and motivated staff (1 founder, 1 developer, 1 designer, 2 web administrator, & 1 PR manager), Florence tends to hand out to those who are in passion in beauty, skincare, and makeup products, to meet all their honest reviews on the products they are using. Florence described Muffin.my as a similar version of TripAdvisor website, but with more interactive elements. “We ensure all reviews are genuine and unbiased to ensure quality inspections,” explained Florence. After working in a web consulting firm for a year, she realized that working life isn’t her real goal. “Just as what Steve Jobs quoted “the only way to do great work is to love what you do”. I want to make my dream come true, and my dream is to create the largest beauty review

community.” “A lot of people asked me why use ‘muffin’ word for my website. I wanted to create a simple name where people will remember the websiteeasily. The word ‘muffin’ just popped out in my mind and the next day, I tried to register the domain, and volla, it is valid! So immediately, I registered my website www.muffin.my . However, many people thought that we are selling muffins!” laughed Florence. With 6 years of experience in internet retailing and marketing, Florence hopes that Muffin.my will reach

100,000 members in 1 year time. Currently, 92% of our members are women; with most of them are 19-29 years old.

Skin care was one of the most dynamic categories in Malaysian beauty and personal care, and with RM1.6 billion being spent annually by Malaysia, the vision to be one of the largest www.muffin.my



.

Future Plan


Our next step is to create a mobile-friendly app version, to allow people access to our website easily at anytime, anywhere. Our future plan is to create beauty forum, help beauty merchants to conduct online surveys or marketing research, mystery shoppers and who knows? Maybe we will sell beauty products in the future!

SKINCARE TIPS: HOW TO CHOOSE SKINCARE PRODUCTS FOR ACNE PRONE SKIN

HOW TO CHOOSE SKINCARE PRODUCTS FOR ACNE PRONE SKIN


It has been sometimes since I write about skincare tips and here I am back with another post on how to choose product for acne prone skin.


I am a skincare junkie and yes I love skincare products more than makeup =). I am not good in makeup, lazy and I think having a good skin is better than having the best concealer in the world.


Whenever I am in Kuala Lumpur, I would sure visit Sephora but now we can also order the products online through Zalora website . \ ^ v ^ /  How amazing is that???  My friends love Sephora eyeliner because they are cheap and it is really nice considering the price.  Oh, let go back to the skincare tips =)  .





1. First of all, know your skin type. It might be dry with acne , oily with acne or combination with acne. Do not assume that everyone has the same skin type.



2. Check your age. Acne products that works for adult is not the same as the acne products for teenagers as the skin built is not the same. Look for brands that cater to certain age.


3. Use a good simple cleanser for your skin. The Koreans follow the double cleaning method which is use oil cleanser first follow by the foam cleanser. Or you could use cleansing water which is also very popular for oily skin.  Treat your skin like a baby.

4. Then after lotion/toner, applied the essence or moisturizer.

5. Apply eye cream to reduce the stress around the eyes and prolong your youth.

6. Do pore cleansing mask and then sheet mask to reduce the flare up. Most Korean do “A sheet mask A day” and it does help but since I don’t have deep pockets, I can’t do that every day. Choose the mask for acne/sensitive/trouble/blemishes and ingredients such as green tea, honey and hydrating ones.

I think that is some simple skincare tips on choosing products for acne prone skin.  If there is anything that you would like to know, feel free to let me know at the comment section.

REVIEW ON BURT'S BEES RICHLY REPLENISHING COCOA& CUPUACU BUTTERS BODY LOTION



It smell really nice. I can say that it smell like chocolates since it is cocoa butter.  The lotion is milky white and it absorb really well.  It is not greasy and oily.  Just that the moisturisation effect doesn't last that long on my leg since my leg is dry like desert.  I love the smell of chocolate that i feel like licking my own legs?

Burt's Bees products are organic with no chemical.  So, if you do not like any chemical things, do try Burt's  Bee lotion. Overall i think it smell great but the moisturise does not last long.
As for me, I am too lazy to apply anything after bathing so that is why my legs are dry.  I would just slap on those "whatever products my face doesn't like" on them since i don't like to waste products.  Besides, my mum finishes her products so slow and to her, i am Overboard in the "vain categories".   Having more than 3 skincare products are considered vain to her?  My gosh, i think most people are vain now.Oh, So, my poor or lucky legs to get all those skincare meant for the face.  hahaha

REVIEW ON BURT'S BEES LIP SHIMMER STRAWBERRY



If you a person who is paranoid about having something chemical on your lips, then maybe you should try Burt's Bees Lip range.  Their products are 100% natural.  Lips shimmer provides lipbalm effect on the lips plus colour and shimmering effect on the lips.  They have a lot flavour to choose from. Strawberry is one of their newest range.

The colour of Burt's bees Lip Shimmer Strawberry-pale strawberry






As i got it from the post, i think the heat from the process of delivering had cause some defect to the lip balm.
T_T  .  I couldn't put it back inside the stick.  So, i had to put the lip balm into the container.  Luckily nothing else happened.  The name Strawberry is based on the colour of the lip shimmer and not the taste.  It is natural pink and the shimmer is just nice.  It won't make one look like a having a diamond on the lips.  It would suits everyone and is a daily colour.  One can layer it to achieve more shimmer and colour.

I love the minty and cooling feeling of the lip shimmer that lasted for about 30 minutes.  It is also moisturising on the lips.  Just that the colour doesn't last long.  Well, i don't expect that from any lipbalm unless they really put in some permanent colour that may stain or be dangerous to our health.  If you lick it, there is some sweet taste but i don't like the aftertaste of the lip shimmer on my tongue.


Here is some photos of me with the lip shimmer-strawberry.

Overall, i think that the colour is not that amazing but it suitable for nude makeup or to pair up with smokey eyes or even daily use.  Sorry cause i do not put up any makeup(not even bb cream) so i think i just look "normal" with this lip shimmer.


RM34.80 for 2.6g
