Smoother Body with Soap and Glory Orangeasm Body Polish

I hope this is not discontinued…or at least, it should have a good replacement.
how to exfoliate your body with soap and glory body polish

I believe in the importance of exfoliating our skin once a week. Years back, I was a bit lazy to follow a routine but I guess when you notice how ageing starts to impact the texture and appearance of the skin, you get moving. Exfoliating is not only for the face but for the body as well. Scrubbing or exfoliating on a once-a-week basis signals our body to produce more collagen. It helps our skin to refresh itself by getting unclogged from buildup of dead cells on its surface. This way, it also helps the skin absorb moisturizers or body lotion better than before.

Smoother Body with Soap and Glory Orangeasm Body Polish

I picked up this Soap and Glory Orangeasm Body Polish when I was in Thailand and I’ve fallen in love with it! Aside from the catchy product name which Soap and Glory has been known for, the scent is captivating. But wait, not only does it smell great, it makes my skin feel great everytime, too! Compared to other body scrubs that I used, this one melts naturally onto wet skin and leaves that amazing refreshed feeling.

Step by step to exfoliate your body

Colour of body polish


Soap and Glory says “this is a 3-in-1 body polish formulated to stimulate and revive the skin. The scent is a combination of fresh green mandarin, lemon and sweet orange peel oils. It is designed to to gently foam, cleanse, moisturize, uplift and refresh while smoothing the skin.”
Contains:
Natural Orange peel exfoliator
Pinkpepperberry
Jojoba Moisture melt beads
Glycerin
Green Tea antioxidants
How to use:
  1. Rinse your body with water. Some prefer to prep the skin by manually exfoliating using loofah or exfoliating gloves before they even hop into the shower.
  2. Squeeze a handful of Orangeasm Exfoliating Body Polish onto your damp skin. You can start with your shoulders to your arms then progressively downwards to your legs and toes. Rub gently in circular motions, like how you do using your body wash.
  3. Squeeze a bit more of the body polish when needed.
  4. Add extra attention to your elbows, knees and feet but don’t scrub like your angry. Just rub gently with probably more rounds than other parts.
  5. Don’t forget to scrub your back as well.
  6. Rinse with lukewarm water, gently rubbing off the beads.
  7. Towel dry and apply your favorite body lotion on your entire body.
Reminder:
  • Don’t scrub on wounds or broken skin.
  • If you have sensitive skin, you may want to test on a small part of your skin first.
  • This product is for adults only, not designed for children or babies.
  • Avoid contact with eyes. If product gets into your eyes, quickly rinse with cool water until vision is clear and no stinging remains.

Happy exfoliating!




I’m not sure though if this product is still available. I notice that it’s out of stock in many places and I haven’t visited Boots in Thailand recently to check if it’s still being sold. But I do have a backup…Smoothie Star Breakfast Scrub! You can check it out at Soap and Glory website

I’m captivated by Althea 🙂 

E-commerce has made beauty shopping so much easier and more convenient. When it comes to beauty products, though, I must admit that I don’t have a lot of Korean ones. I guess I often find that information on packaging can be tough to understand when there’s no English translation. But with Althea, I don’t have this problem anymore. Each product available for shopping online has product information and details, even photos of actual application!

I came across this cutely-named and cutely-packaged primer, the Skin Liar Primer by Elizavecca. It promises to conceal pores like magic so, yes, I must try it! Witch’s Pouch has an interesting name and line of products, which tempted me to buy 4 items from this brand.

I love the full colour of the lip crayon! (Sorry, can’t smile too wide…wrinkles…)

Tried here: Elizavecca Skin Liar Primer, It’s My Lip Crayon, Witch’s Pouch Perfect Cover Concealer, AirFit CC Cream

Here’s a personal tip in creating your party kit. After you have decorated your hat with the paper accessories, you can try mounting it on a headband instead of tying a string on both ends. Using a headband can allow you to position the hat to the right or left aside from the usual centre position. Plus it’s easier to wear and you don’t need to use a string.

Happy shopping, guys!  

Claim your Rewards now with ShopBack and Hermo Malaysia


shopback-cashback-rewards-shopping-online

I kept hearing about ShopBack from my gorgeous Head of Digital Marketing named Rowena (Haha! Sorry, Rowena, if you’re reading this, I can’t help but mention your name…see, I don’t ignore what you’re talking about.) Being an online shopper like me, although maybe not as notorious, she enjoys discovering great ways to be rewarded from spending online. Since I keep hearing about ShopBack, I knew I just had to investigate. 

What are the usual online sites that you shop from? I’m a beauty junkie but my shopping needs are not limited to beauty sites alone. I do look for device and gadgets, kids stuff, health products, flights, accommodations, stock shots and more. Name an online site and I’ve probably shopped there! To name a few:

  • 11street
  • Agoda
  • AirAsia
  • Amazon
  • Dreamstime
  • eBay
  • FoodPanda
  • GemFive
  • Groupon
  • Guardian
  • HappyFresh
  • Hermo
  • Hermo
  • Lazada
  • MySale
  • Sephora
  • Shutter stock
  • Signature Snack
  • Watsons
  • Wine Talk
  • Zalora

I spent time today checking the site and exploring what ShopBack does. The concept is pretty simple and amazing: shop online with ShopBack stores and get cashback rewards through your ShopBack account, which are then transferred to your preferred bank account. With whatever value you spend, based on each store’s ShopBack offer, you get rewards! This cashback site gives you savings online!

shopback-cashback-rewards-shopping-online


It’s easy to earn money back. From the long list of available stores at ShopBack, I’d say it’s impossible for a lot of us not to find at least 10 brands or stores to shop from. After you’ve created a ShopBack account, simply click on the store that you want to shop from, ensure that you shop on that URL so ShopBack can track your purchase, proceed with your purchase on that store and that’s it! You can check your ShopBack rewards within 4 – 48 hours. 

shopback-cashback-rewards-shopping-online

Discover how to get started with this video:


I’ve checked 2 online beauty sites: Hermo and Sephora (but of course!). Hermo gives customers up to 5.6% cashback. If you’re an existing customer, you get 4.2% cashback while a new customer gets 5.6%. You can enjoy cashback with the latest Hermo voucher easily through ShopBack. Some of the beauty brands you can shop for at Hermo are Acca Kappa, B.liv, Bioderma, Clinelle, Cyber Colors, Dr. Wu, Garnier, H2O+, Kate, Kose, L’Oreal, Laneige, Lierac, Physiogel, Talika and The Face Shop.    

This is a great time to earn cashback from Hermo, look at the collection they recently featured. It’s Disney’s Alice in Wonderland beauty collection!

shopback-hermo-malaysia-alice-in-wonderland


Hermo has regular deals, it’s best to check on your favorite products and brands from time to time.  

shopback-hermo-malaysia-beauty-makeup

Sephora is also one of the numerous stores with ShopBack rewards. New customers get 8.0% cashback, existing customers get 2.0%. Oh man, all the rewards I’ve missed from my Sephora shopping! Great brands from Sephora include Benefit Cosmetics, Burberry, Clinique, Caudalie, Dr. Jart, Ecotools, GlamGlow, Julie Hewett, Lancome, REN, Sigma Beauty, SK-II, Too Faced, Urban Decay and Zoeva. I’m a fan of makeup brushes from Zoeva and Sigma Beauty, I buy them from Sephora online (previously Luxola). I should have been shopping with ShopBack where you can also find the best Sephora coupons

Now I’m wishing that I listened to Rowena a lot earlier. I could have collected more rewards from my online shopping sprees! Why why why didn’t I pay attention long time ago? 

Start getting rewarded through ShopBack and collect money back from shopping. Make the most out of your dollars / ringgit by getting rewards. 



Head-to-Toe Care with Lip Hop

Affordable face care, hair care, body care and sun care for everyone.

bodycare-sun-care-skincare-liphop-guardian-malaysia

Are you a fan of colourful products? Love Korean fashion, drama and music? Do you take care of yourself with beauty products? A new, interesting series of face, hair, body and sun care has landed at our nearest pharmacy and they’ve combined the things you love. If you’ve been to Guardian pharmacy recently, you must have noticed a display of pretty, colourful facial cleansers, body gels and sun protection products —Lip Hop, exclusively at Guardian pharmacies. 

Guardian has launched additional collections to the Lip Hop items that it has introduced in late 2015. The response has been amazingly positive for a line of dermatologically-tested sun care that comes with proven benefits and fun, colourful packaging. Yes, they’ve listened to customers and brought in more products made in Korea with 3 Lip Hop range early this year: Lip Hop Sun Care, Lip Hop Happy Cleanse and Lip Hop Aqua Jelly. It’s a complete head-to-toe range at an affordable price range, making it easy for all of us to take care of our hair, body, face and even lips (will tell you more about that later). 

face-cleansers-skincare-liphop-guardian-malaysia
The facial cleansers, youthfully named k:skin HAPPY CLEANSE, effectively cleanse the face without drying the skin. There are 5 different variants, each specifically made for a skin concern: 

1. Moisturising Manuka Honey Cleansing Gel – cleansing, moisturising, brightening, anti-aging 
2. Ultra-Soothing Aloe Vera Cleansing Gel – cleansing, soothing, hydrating, calming
3. Antioxidant Green Tea Foam Cleanser – cleansing, anti-aging, soothing
4. Sebum-Control Amazon Clay Foam Cleanser – cleansing, oil-control, soothing
5. Deep-Cleansing Bamboo Charcoal Foam Cleanser – deep cleansing, oil-control, moisturising
Price: RM12.90 each, all 100ml
Made in Korea, dermatologically tested and proven

facial-cleanser-skincare-liphop-guardian-malaysia

These cleansers are amazing. My favorite was the Moisturising Manuka Honey Cleansing Gel. I love honey and this cleansing gel looks exactly like honey. The color and viscosity of the gel itself looks edible, tempting to taste! The scent has a mild, sweet honey aroma and leaves a lovely sensation on the face after use. My skin feels clean, smooth yet moisturised after washing. 

If your skin is acne-prone due to excess oil, you can try the Sebum-Control Amazon Clay Foam Cleanser. If you’re like me who has big pores, you can use the Deep-Cleansing Bamboo Charcoal. I alternate this with my Manuka Honey Cleanser. 

bodycare-face-body-gel-liphop-guardian-malaysia
After cleansing, it is very important that we moisturise our face and body. The Lip Hop AQUA JELLY range includes 8-in-1 multi-purpose products with 4 variants:

1. Lip Hop Aloe Moist Aqua Jelly Face & Body Gel
2. Lip Hop Bamboo Soothe  Aqua Jelly Face & Body Gel
3. Lip Hop Ice Plant Water Cool Aqua Jelly Face & Body Gel
4. Lip Hop Dragon Blood Fresh Aqua Jelly Face & Body Gel
Price: RM19.90 each, all 250ml
Made in Korea, dermatologically tested and proven

I mentioned 8-in-1, didn’t I? And I also did mention that Lip Hop also makes it easy for us to take care of our lips? Here are the great uses of Lip Hop Aqua Jelly:

1. Moisturising gel or mask pack for dry facial skin.
2. Make-up base for a luminous face. 
3. Acts as an after-shave gel for your face, legs and underarms to soothe and moisturise sensitive skin. 
4. Suitable to be used as hair treatment without any stickiness.
5. Acts as a mask pack to rehydrate skin after sun exposure.
6. Keeps your nails moisturised and nourished.  
7. All-over moisturiser that is ideal for those working in air-conditioned environment. Lip Hop Aqua Jelly even relaxes area around your eyes by applying it with a piece of cotton. 
8. Acts as a lip moisturiser to sooth and chapped lips.

I enjoyed using the Ice Plant Water Cool. It’s perfect during this hot weather. Do you sometimes feel that body lotion gives you a sticky sensation especially after bathing on a warm day? The good thing about these body gels is that they have water-based formulation instead of oils, making the texture light and cooling during hot weather. 

The gel is highly water-like, as you can see on my palm (I had a tough time shooting that moving blob of gel, haha), and also has water-like color. The scent of each gel is very mild. Because these gels are multi-purpose, they’re perfect to travel with! This head-to-toe gel can be used on the hair, the face, lips, eyes and entire body. I even use it on my son’s hair in the morning before school to control his “bedhead hair” as alternative to normal gel or hair oil. Oil can get sticky during the day. 

sun-care-skincare-liphop-guardian-malaysia-spf50

I’m a big fan of sun care products and I’m pleased to try Lip Hop’s SUN CARE range. The range includes 4 variants: 

1. Ultra Whitening Sun Protection Lotion SPF80 PA+++ RM34.90 / 100ml
2. Super Defence EX Sun Protection Milk SPF115 PA+++ RM36.90 / 50ml
3. Moisturising Lightweight Sun Protection Spray SPF50 PA+++ RM35.90 / 150ml
4. Kids Hypoallergenic Sun Protection Lotion SPF50 PA+++ RM34.90 / 100ml
All made in Korea except the Lightweight Sun Protection Spray, which is made in Japan

japan-sun-care-skincare-liphop-guardian-malaysia

I love spray products because these save time and I’m enjoying the Sun Spray SPF50, which comes in a canister of my favorite color, purple. Just spray it lightly over my arms and legs, and I’m ready! It can also be used on the face but not directly sprayed; spray onto the palm first then apply on the face. 

kids-sun-care-skincare-liphop-guardian-malaysia

And thank goodness for having a Kids’ variant, too. I’m pleased that Lip Hop recognises the need for children to be “sun-proofed” as well, not just grown-ups. My son loves playing outside and I’m very cautious about his protection against the sun (and mosquitoes, arghhh, those pesky, little things). The Lip Hop Kids Sun Protection Lotion:
– is hypoallergenic, means it’s safe to use on sensitive skin
– can be applied on the face and body
– contains natural ingredients that soothe kids’ skin after sun exposure
– is water-resistant for 40 minutes, making it great for use during prolonged water and outdoor activities
– is free from parabens, artificial colorant, alcohol and mineral oil
– can be reapplied as needed, after swimming, frequent perspiring, towelling

My son loves to cycle and was excited to try a cycling range by Urban Playz at Ikano Power Centre, next to The Curve shopping mall. This place is outdoor and enjoyed by a lot of kids, especially during the weekends. An activity like this definitely needs sun protection and I’m not one who’d simply allow my child to be exposed to sunlight and UV rays without shield. I allowed him to cycle for 30 minutes, armed with Lip Hop Kids Sun Protection Lotion.  

Now it’s even easier and more affordable to pamper ourselves, our entire family and the kids with Lip Hop’s head-to-toe care. Lip Hop’s Happy Cleanse, Aqua Jelly and Sun Protection products are conveniently available at Guardian pharmacies, in price range of RM12.90 – RM36.90. You can even check out Lip Hop’s site at http://www.liphop.com.my/ and even purchase online via Guardian’s e-shop

Tebe Lavish Soap Bar for Face & Body

Cleanse, moisturize and refresh your skin with paraben-free soap
body-care-soap-bar-paraben-free-no-mineral-oils

Are you someone who only uses body wash or shower gel? Do you use soap bar?
I love using shower gel together with a bath sponge or lily but I also enjoy using soap bar for my body every morning. During the day, it’s just faster to use a bar of soap instead of my usual shower gel that I pour on the bath lily. Some of us have to rush bathing; put makeup and get ready quickly as we also need to prepare our child/children for school.
I love soap bars from Crabtree & Evelyn, Melvita and The Body Shop. I’ve recently opened my Tebe Lavish Soap Bar and I love it.

body-care-soap-bar-paraben-free-no-mineral-oils
This soap comes in a dark brown rectangular box. Upon opening flip-top box cover, you’ll be welcomed by a mild scent of the soap, which is wrapped inside a thin special paper.

body-care-soap-bar-paraben-free-no-mineral-oils-paper-wrapped

body-care-soap-bar-paraben-free-no-mineral-oils
The light scent is fresh and invigorating. I personally love floral fragrance so it’s quite easy for this soap to capture me. After use, you’ll feel refreshed and your skin will feel lightly moisturized. It’s just a bit challenging to handle this soap bar at first because of its size so if you have small hands, it will be large to hold.

Sodium Palmate, Sodium Cocoate, Aqua (Water),  Olea europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, Parfum, Glycerin, Sodium Chloride,  Chamomilla recutita (Chamomile) Flower Extract, Olea europaea (Olive)  Leaf Extract, Camellia sinensis (Green Tea) Leaf Extract

My 2015 Beauty Regime from The Butterfly Project Beauty Box

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.

beauty-box-makeup-skincare-haircare-hand-cream

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. 

beauty-box-with-garnier-sakura-white-cleanser-and-moisturizer
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.

skincare-face-mask-mud-for-antiaging-and-hydrating
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. 
wine-and-beauty-regimen
Oh, yes, I regularly enjoy my GlamGlow mud with some wine

korean-skincare-always21-aloe-vera-gel-mist-soothing-refreshing
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. 

loreal-matrix-biolage-color-last-shampoo-for-longer-salon-color
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. 

maybelline-tinted-lip-balm-pink-shock
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? 

loccitane-hand-cream-for-younger-hands
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?

In its latest endeavour ‘50 Glowing Personalities’, GLOW Magazine by Watsons has identified top personalities who are known for their social influence in the industry.

As Christmas and New Year are around the corner, Watsons has taken this opportunity to initiate a year end campaign themed as ‘Watsons – A Time to Shine’.

“Year end period is also holiday period cherished and celebrated by people all around the world. It’s the time of the year, when you want to look good and feel great.

Customers who spend RM150 will stand a chance to grab 5 limited editions Watsons – A Time to Shine tumbler, while those who spend RM50 will get limited edition collectible paper bags and 2015 calendars,” added Danny. 
Kulvinder Birring, Watsons Malaysia Managing Director, who launched the event, thanked all the celebrities and suppliers who attended the event for their support to Watsons in the past years, which have helped Watsons in becoming Asia’s No. 1 Pharmacy/Drugstore for 6th Year in the running.
