How are you starting your beauty regimen this year? Have you got your whole body (or most of it) covered? Thanks to The Butterfly Project, I got started with my new regimen early.
Happy New Year! Wait, what? Is it late?
It’s always wonderful to welcome the new year with new things…specially beauty stuff. And this month, I have started using new and exciting products to take care of my lips, hands, face and hair.
For the face, it’s time to explore a new cleanser and a moisturiser to improve my skin tone with Garnier Sakura White Pinkish Radiance Cleansing Foam and Moisturizing Cream. I have yet to unbox the cream but starting with the cleansing foam, I fell in love with the beautiful scent. I know, I know, it’s not the scent that solves my skin concern but, hey, can’t help it if the scent is really lovely. These Sakura White products give the skin fresh and pinkish radiant complexion. And they are affordable, too, starting at RM12.90.
I’ve been using GlamGlow since last year and seeing this travel size ThirstyMud is an excitement. This is still part of my beauty regime and with Chinese New Year approaching, I’m just happy to have this travel size tube! GlamGlow ThirstyMud gives hydrating wonders on the skin within a 20-minute application and wash off or tissue off.
|Oh, yes, I regularly enjoy my GlamGlow mud with some wine|
I enjoy using mist on my face for instant moisture and skin refreshment. I’m currently using Melvita Eau Florale de Rose Damask Floral Rose Water, which I’ve also placed in a mini spray to carry with me to work. Now this Always Aloe Vera Soothing & Refresh Gel Mist is a delightful treat from the beauty box! I haven’t heard of this brand but the scent is invigorating, the mist feels great on the face and I love the spray.
Hair is a priority for me to start this year right as the effect of my rebonding treatment is starting to wear off. I’m always exploring shampoos and conditioners that will take care of my damaged hair. This Matrix Biolage Colorlast shampoo, as its name suggests, is for making color last longer – giving you salon-vibrant color for up to 9 weeks – but I discovered that Biolage also has a shampoo for dry hair —- Biolage Hydrasource. The Matrix Biolage hair care range addresses specific hair concern and is committed to creating sustainable products.
I love lip care products and will continue to love them. I’ve tried Shizens Lip Tattoo (see full review HERE) and it’s an amazing moisturizer, color and anti-aging product in one. It’s priced at RM168 so I may want to save it for office days and important events. For those casual days, I have Maybelline Baby Lips Colored Lip Balm to save my dry lips. If I remember right, this is only around RM15, available at leading pharmacies and beauty shops. I love the watermelon flavour and color of this Pink Shock variant. Did I mention it provides 8-hour moisture?
We must always hydrate our hands and take care of them daily and hourly. Hourly? Oh, yes, specially if you’re working inside cool temperature places. Never allow your hands to feel dry so always carry a tube of hand cream with you. This L’Occitane Velvet hand cream is a perfect companion to make sure that my hands stay young and beautiful.
So these are some of my beauty picks to start my beauty regime this year! What are yours?
