I am lazy when it comes to masks but I had to do something about the crazy pimples popping up.
I have no idea whether its stress, seeing I am not as stressed at work. I usually just blame it on my hormones.
A friend recommended this and I have been applying this quite diligently. I do think the amount of crazy pimples has reduced and when they do come out, it’s not as inflamed.
This is a clay mask with a subtle lavender scent that dries in less than 10 minutes which is great for lazy people like me. It also rinses off really quickly.
As for the ‘invisible pores’, well I never expected it to work any magic on my pores but if it does I will report back.
My friend has suggested that I use the omega serum after this and it does make the serum absorb a lot more easily.
As part of my package renewal at 128faubourg I was entitled to spend my credits on some products. I picked this because I was in need of an eye cream and had nothing else to buy. My go to has always been SK-II’s skin signature eye cream but I wanted to try something new.
I love this a lot more than the hydrating eye cream which I did a short review of a year ago.
The cream is more fluid than SK-II and it’s not too overly rich but really hydrating. The sharp tip dispenser is really convenient as well. I haven’t seen any stark improvements around my eye area but it hasn’t made it any worse.
Downside? Expensive at rm300+ for 15ml and the packaging looks far from premium.
I should write a review about the facials at 128faubourg one day.

From the description itself there’s no mistaking that this will be lovely. I’ll admit I have my doubts about its longevity on my skin, peonies tend to be quite soft. We’ll soon know.

Expected to hit stores in September 2013 so I suppose it really isn’t coming ‘that’ soon.
First impressions, this reminds me of Sakura Cherry Blossom.
Delicately exotic.This white flower captures the duality of apricot counterpoised with supple leather. Luminous petitgrain and luscious peach and orange flower ripple over voluptuous cashmere wood.
Well, maybe it’s just my skin but it must’ve just skipped everything and went straight to the base which comes across as being quite musky.
No apricot, leather, petit grain, peach or orange flower. It doesn’t necessarily come across as smelling fresh like how most reviews have suggested. It starts off smelling a lot sharper but glad to say the dry down is softer and more soothing.
Suggest you ladies try this at the store before buying it. Available at Jo Malone Pavillion Malaysia.
This makes my skin look so dewy and supple. I never thought my oily combination skin would be able to withhold a cream foundation, but it did.
It does get a bit oily during the day but nothing some blotting can’t fix.
This would be my go to foundation for full coverage without looking cakey. While a little goes a long way, application is slightly annoying seeing I’ve tried applying this with many brushes and the only one that works is Shiseido’s flat head foundation brush which in itself is a lot of work to use too.
For those of you looking for something matte but with full coverage, Estée Lauder’s double wear foundation does a good job but its hard to get a good colour match.
Price is RM200+
From beautyhabit’s Facebook page:
Eau Moheli is the 2nd fragrance in Diptyque’s Les Florales line.
Don’t remember if I like ylang ylang but I’m definitely looking forward to trying this seeing I am a huge fan of their fragrances.
The price for the 100ml will likely hover around the RM400+ mark.
The GE13 election after-math is proving to be quite entertaining. The shenanigans only Malaysian politicians are capable of.
I am also sad to learn that a relative has passed away. Her passing away has me thinking about making long term changes to my life choices.
My favorite Jo Malone sales associate has left Saks 5th avenue. Here I was looking forward to seeing her in July only to find out I’ve just missed her by 2 months. It’s hard to find SAs that I genuinely like and feel like I have a connection with.
Somber news aside, I have gotten my hands on a bottle of osmanthus blossom, I cannot wait to try it. Stay tuned.
