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 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!

Support Breastfeeding together with MyNutriBaby

Infant and child nutrition programme MyNutriBaby launches nationwide contest in conjunction with World Breastfeeding Month


mynutribaby_launch_breastfeeding_contest_philips_avent
Breastfeeding is the best way to nourish a baby, but some mothers are unable to do so smoothly and continuously. They try to breastfeed exclusively for at least 6 months, but eventually discontinue their efforts, often due to a lack of support from the people around them. In light of this, several professional bodies have come together to launch a contest to promote increased support among Malaysians for breastfeeding mothers.
The contest, #LetsSupportBreastfeeding, will run from 18 August to 19 September 2014. Interested participants can visit www.mynutribaby.org.my. Here, they can watch a video which highlights how a breastfeeding mother’s efforts are improved by the support she receives from her husband, her mother-in-law and her employer. They can then nominate someone who is breastfeeding or has breastfeed and share how they have supported this person’s efforts. Both the nominee and nominator stand to win great prizes.
#LetsSupportBreastfeedingis an initiative from MyNutriBaby, a community education programme spearheaded by Nutrition Society of Malaysia (NSM) in collaboration with the Malaysian Paediatric Association (MPA), Obstetrical and Gynaecological Society (OGSM) and National Population and Family Development Board (LPPKN). The programme is supported by Philips AVENT Malaysia.

“MyNutriBaby is a programme dedicated to help parents improve their children’s nutritional status for better growth and development,” said Dr Tee E Siong, President of NSM. “It aims to translate the key messages of the Malaysian Dietary Guidelines for Children and Adolescents, released by the Ministry of Health in 2013, into simple easy-to-follow messages for the public.”
He added that, with many members of the organising committee being parents themselves, they fully understand the challenges experienced by breastfeeding mothers.
According to Dr Tee, there are many mothers who wish to breastfeed because of its many benefits.  “Breast milk offers complete nutrition for the baby’s growth and development, and it contains antibodies that help protect the baby from infections. The mother also receives benefits such as improved bonding with her baby and faster post-pregnancy weight loss. This is why it is recommended that mothers give their babies only breast milk in the first six months. Mothers should continue to breastfeed after the child has started complementary foods, until the child is two,” he said.
However, there are mothers who discontinue breastfeeding due to reasons such as latching problems, discomfort and pain, or having to go back to work. Also, workplace pressure, stress and fatigue can affect breast milk production, causing some mothers to believe that they are not capable of producing enough breast milk.
“Many frustrations associated with breastfeeding can be lessened by the support from the people around the mother,” said Dr Tee. Even small gestures, such as providing a listening ear, go a long way in improving the mother’s confidence and determination to keep breastfeeding.  “This is why we encourage people to take part in #LetsSupportBreastfeeding. It is a great opportunity to let a special mother know how much you appreciate and support her efforts!” 
“Philips AVENT believes that breast feeding is the best source of nourishment for babies. Philips AVENT turns 30 this year, and our commitment to this remains unchanged. Breast milk, with its health-enhancing benefits for babies, is ideal for them, so we aim to help all mothers breast feed as easily and as conveniently as possible. MyNutriBaby is a meaningful programme very much in line with what we believe, thus we are pleased to support the #LetsSupportBreastfeeding contest,” said Muhammad Ali Jaleel, Country Manager for Philips Group of Companies in Malaysia and General Manager for Consumer Lifestyle, Philips Malaysia.

Fight Blackheads with Neutrogena Deep Clean

How do you solve your blackhead woes and how do you prevent them from coming back?

blackhead_eliminating
Having pores that are ‘not normal in size’ can be really challenging. Pores like mine tend to get clogged and invite dirt, forming more whiteheads or blackheads. My regimen through the years involved proper cleansing and trying to ensure that I use the right cleansers to address this concern about blackheads.
Although there are a lot of good cleansers out there, it pays to use a specific one that is targeted to fight those nasty little things. While doing my regular visit a few months ago at a leading pharmacy, I stumbled upon this product from Neutrogena, which caught my eye because of its name that twinkled magically to my attention (ching ching ching). Blackhead eliminating, eh? Gotta try that.

neutrogena_blackhead_eliminating_daily_scrub
This product comes in a half-transparent plastic tube. The flip-top cap makes it convenient, and the opening has a sticker seal for quality protection. You have to twist the cap open to remove this.

neutrogena_blackhead_eliminating_daily_scrub
The scrub itself is a shiny, white fluid with orange micro beads. It just smells clean and nice, no extra fragrance there.

neutrogena_deep_clean_blackhead_eliminating_daily_scrub
I love using this on my face. During the day, I normally use a different cleanser then in the evening, I use Neutrogena Deep Clean Blackhead Eliminating Daily Scrub after Cleansing Lotion. My face feels great and really ‘deeply cleaned’ with this scrub.

neutrogena_deep_clean_blackhead_eliminating_daily_scrub_product_review

LEFT: with makeup, before washing with Neutrogena
RIGHT: after washing with Neutrogena Blackhead Eliminating Daily Scrub

What difference did it make on my pores?
When I started using this, my regimen already included weekly cleansing with pore strip, which has reduced the amount and size of whiteheads and blackheads that I strip off every week. With the addition of Deep Clean Blackhead Eliminating Daily Scrub, I noticed that I barely have blackheads on my pore strip, and it definitely prevented formation of more blackheads. I don’t think that my face will totally be ‘heads-free’ but I’m now able to control them, resulting to cleaner pores. Yay! #happy #neutrogena #skincare #greatcleanser #fightblackheads

About Neutrogena
Neutrogena the #1 Dermatologist Recommended skincare brand offers a wide range of skin care products.
Neutrogena began its success story in 1930 when founder Emanuel Stolaroff started a small specialty cosmetic company called Natone. In the early years, Natone was a supplier to beauty salons usually associated with the glamour of the film industry. By the 1940’s, Natone began manufacturing and distributing cosmetics for the retail market. In 1994, the respect and credibility earned by Neutrogena Corporation led to its acquisition by Johnson & Johnson in 1994. As a member of Johnson & Johnson companies, Neutrogena has the opportunity to preserve the “Neutrogenic way” while at the same time drawing on the breadth of Johnson & Johnson resources.
Now, more than ever, consumers equate health with beauty. Neutrogena stands naturally poised for tremendous future growth and an ever-increasing number of satisfied customers. Under Neutrogena Brands.
