REVIEW: Hydrate My Skin with H2O Concept Box

Hi Lovelies,

I will be sharing with you how to use this H2O Concept Box in order to hydrate back your dry skin. Dry skin isn't just something that happens to us as we age. It can be caused by overexposure to the elements, harsh soaps and even spending too much time in a hot shower. Dry skin can makes us look older by giving us all the fine lines and even wrinkles >.<

SO, ARE you guys ready to open the box together with me??

1, 2, 3 and TADAAA~!!!

Hehehehehe~ wants to make it to be more mysterious.

Okay! Here you go!

This month Concept Box contains of 10 items of H2O products from the range of 
OASIS-in blue color (to heal the dry skin)
AQUALIBRIUM-in purple color (to target combination skin); 
WATERWHITE-in grey color (to clarify uneven skin tone) and 
SPA (for body, hand and nail lotion)

Direction to Use:

1. Always use a soap-free cleanser that won't strip skin of essential nutrients, like Face Oasis Cleansing 30mL or the Aqualibrium Marine Cleansing Gel 30mL.

2. Followed by toner. Sweep a non-drying, alcohol-free formula like Aqualibrium Marine Toner 30mL over your face to remove impuruties and dull skin cells, which can impede the absorption of your moisturizer.

3. Next is to boost your skin. Apply your Eye cream 4mL delicately around the area of your eyes. 

4. Dry skin can always benefit from a good overnight treatment that will heal, moisturize and replenish while you sleep. During the night, apply the Oxygenating Rejuvenator 8mL.

5. During the day, be sure to always hydrate skin with a moisturizer that contains essential vitamins, which help protect against harsh, moisture-depleting elements. Face Oasis Ultra Hydrator 8mL contains antioxidant multivitamins and hydrating marine botanical keep skin nourished, healthy and resilient against damaging elements throughout the day.

6. Last but not least, Waterwhite Brightening Hydrator Cream 8mL is the complementary if you would like to have a brighter skin. 

I personally quite like for the products above, as this Concept Box also cover for the body, hand and nail.- each 30mL. Not only focusing for our skin face. Our other parts of the body also need some love and attention ^^

H2O Night Cream, 10mL is for the advanced age repair. Applied at night onto our face and neck before go to bed.

The size of the 30mL of H2O hand and nail cream is same like the 25mL Crabtree & Evelyn.

From the packaging above, 8ml of H2O and 5ml of Ceradan has an obvious difference. H2O packaging is tall and slim, makes it looks smaller in terms of size >.< I was quite a bit dissatisfied when I saw it as its too smalllll... Hahahahaha. But when I went home and I compared with my other sample product. Hmmm okay~ this H2O although its smaller in terms of the size, but the content is more than Ceradan. 

*FYI, Ceradan is  a therapeutic cream for ezchema skin patients. Available in the private and government hospital only*

Hope this blog post is useful and stay hydrated ^^

See you in my next blog post!

With love,

REVIEW: Natural Dolly for the 'Curtain' to the 'Window'

Hi Lovelies,

I hope you guys enjoyed your long weekend :) I spent my weekend by hybernating at home. Feels so good to lie down on the bed, watching Korean movie and also Sister Acts (old movie but it's good for laughing session), eating some junk foods and enjoying my face mask.

Okay before I start, let's play a quick 'spot the difference' game.

What is the difference do you notice between Mickey and Minnie mouse EXCEPT from their outfits?

Let's check into more details.

AND YES!!! You are correct! Is Minnie's beautiful EYELASHES.

Without eyelashes, Minnie is not minnie anymore. That's how important eyelashes to us, like the 'curtain' to the 'window'. 
Hahaha I assume that the 'window' is our eyes and the 'curtain' (to beautify the window) is our eyelashes.

First and foremost, apply your favourite eyeliner. And for this case, my favourite is Bobbi Brown gel eyeliner.

 Next, curl your eyelashes with the new Curving Eyelash Curler form Koji Dolly Wink. This product will be launched in the market in November (Price is around RM69.90). So, stay tuned guys! 

Left: Newer version of Curving Eyelash Curler form Koji Dolly Wink
Right: Older version 

 With the improved version of the size (38mm), frame, flat edge and shape. Makes us easier to curl our eyelashes with eyes OPEN and it can covers up all of our eyelashes. 

It comes with a cover and 2 extra rubbers for you to change. This 2 rubbers can keep you up for a very long time. I haven't even change mine for like 2 years for my current lash curler. LOLLL....

Third step, is to apply your mascara first before putting on your fake eyelashes. The REASON is because we want to protect the hair of the fake lash. And after you curl and apply mascara on your original lash, there is no reason for flat lash. Which means both the original and the fake should be can stay with each other closely.

In this case, I use the BCL Lash Curler Express for Curl & Long, followed by Maybelline voluminous mascara.

No.9 Natural Dolly came with 2 pairs and Dolly Wink glue. The glue is white in color and it works well to stick the fake lash together with the original lash. Dolly Wink fake lash is handmade and lightweight, which makes them more comfortable for us to wear.

Before you start to apply, measure the length of the fake lash to make sure it fits your eye shape. This step will avoid the corner dropping and the end poking into your eye. If the strips need to be shortened, start cutting from the OUTER edge of your fake lash as the outer edge usually is longer than the inner edge.

Then, as Dolly Wink fake lash is quite flexible, we can skip the step of bending the fake lash into C shape (to prevent straightness.

Apply the Dolly Wink glue generously across the lash strip. Make sure to be generous at both the inner and outer corner so the glue won't unstick when you blink.

Wait for the glue to be half dry and apply the fake lash to the base of your natural lash line on top of your actual lash. Adjust it a little bit for the fake lash falls naturally on your eyes and VOILA!! It's done <3

Look No.1

Look No.2

I will try with another kind of look with THINNER eyeliner. Hahaha >.< 

Hope this post is useful and see you in my next blog post.

And as always, stay chic! xoxo

With love,
