My Beauty Diary to a Beautiful Skin

You will never realise how dehydrated your skin is until you place a face mask on your face. I’ve always had oily skin since young, and it's quite bad (to me at least) as I experience myself having the need to wipe the oil off my face or apply some pressed powder few times a day. So I've never really thought my skin is dehydrated when my pores are producing so much face oil! But guess what? Skin dehydration can sometimes be the cause of oily skin! Sometimes your skin gets oily it’s because the inside of your pores is dehydrated, so when it's dehydrated your pores will produce more oil to keep your skin moisturized. 

This is why we need to do face mask at least once a week to maintain the hydration of our pores (of course it’s subjective depending on your skin type and condition), but as for me, who has oily to combination skin, yeah once a week sounds good. ;)
 


Speaking of face masks, look what I’ve just received. Yes face masks obviously based from the brand, but My Beauty Diary face masks are not the same as those you buy 4 for RM10 masks. Here’s why:



My Beauty Diary – Royal Pearl Mask that helps with not only brightening and whitening the skin, but also nourishes and repairs skin! <3.

Brightening & Whitening
The pearl powder contains trace elements such as Calcium, Magnesium, Zinc essential extracts for the skin and several Amino Acid complex.

The mask also contains the two double-acting moisturizing ingredients and they are Cosphingo x Aquaroad that will help hydrate, whiten, and give your skin radiance.

What’s the secret in this mask to a luminous complexion, a soft, clear and translucent skin? It’s the formulation with tea extract, enriched with tea polyphenols and Mulberry extract!

Hydrating & Moisturizing
As we are often exposed to polluted air, not forgetting the UV ray, we need to really take care of our skin. The herbal extracts from Sugar maple, Gingko, and Malvasylvestris provides a protective layer that will help skin defend against environmental damage, retain skin’s moisture and support healthy skin texture. Other extracts such as Licorice and hydrolysed Yeast protein will help to soothe, nourish and encourage skin renewal, giving it a visibly whiter and smoother complexion.


Next we have, White Lily Brightening Essence Mask.

Brightening & Softening
What is the secret to the softness and purity of your skin? Can you guess? It’s LILY! Every white petal helps in beautifying skin, so imagine when it’s blended with whitening essence from Olive leaves, tea leaves and sodium ascorbyl phosphate? This is the secret of White Lily Brightening Essence Mask to brighten skin complexion! This mask will leave your skin silky, smooth, tender, lustrous, and FIRM.

Calming & Protecting
There are times when our skin becomes stressed out and then breaks out, this could be possibly due to stress or even lifestyle. The Marigold extract in this mask helps calms, repairs, and strengthens skin cuticles to boost skin’s natural defence again anything that would irritate the skin while giving you a crystal clear morning dew complexion. Who doesn’t want that?

With everything said about these two masks, let’s test them out shall we? ;)
Before applying mask, ensure your face is squeaky clean so that you skin can absorb all the goodness! In this picture I had a facial scrub done in the shower, please excuse my turban. From this picture I think you can see my face is a little red, probably because I gave it a good scrub. :p. So here I was posing with the mask (Royal Pearl Mask), and then reading the instructions behind.
  
Boo!

How many of you are PRO at applying masks? I’m sure most of you are ;) but for those who are not too sure, here’s a tip for ya’ll: spread the mask out evenly and give it a light pull to lift your face. J Any remaining essence on the mask I’d usually spread to my neck.

As much we girls love face masks because we want beautiful skin, but I’m sure there are a number of you MEN who uses face mask too and there’s nothing to be ashamed about because I know that guys want nice skin too! ;) So with that, let me introduce Jeremy here who will be testing out the White Lily Brightening Essence Mask.

Jeremy’s skin is a little sensitive as he recently discovered that he’s allergic to facial products that have green tea extract in it. What happened was he once used a Green Tea face scrub and immediately his face started having red spots/patches, but thankfully it was not too irritating except for when he looks at the mirror. So let’s see if this mask is suitable for sensitive skin shall we?
One thing you need to remember when doing face mask, DO NOT LAUGH OR SMILE.
We both left our masks on for 30 minutes and did our own thing while waiting. Halfway I noticed my mask sheet started to feel a little dry. As for Jeremy his mask was still fine although we were both under the same room temperature. That’s when I realize how dehydrated my pores were that it absorbed the moisture so quickly!

So 30 minutes have passed and what are our results?
My face felt super hydrated, soft, smooth, and brighter! It’s been a long time since my face felt this smooth, I’m not kidding! It’s even glowing!
 
What about Jeremy? His skin was glowing and it was brighter as well. He said his skin felt really smooth and firm, but best of all no allergic reaction! Trust me guys, if you have a really nice skin, girls will come complimenting and touching your face too.

Conclusion, it definitely feels different compared to those 4 for RM10 masks that I usually use, because I can actually see and feel the difference immediately after. I highly recommend My Beauty Diary masks. You can get the My Beauty Diary Royal Pearl Mask at only RM49.90 for 10 sheets and RM44.90 for 7 sheets of My Beauty Diary White Lily Brighten Essence Mask. Pretty affordable right? You can get My Beauty Diary masks at any Guardian or SASA near you. J

White Birthday Party!

Another year has passed since my birthday last year, can't believe how quickly time flies. Now when I look back to the past 5 years, man... can't believe how far I've come. Like many others, I've gone through a lot in the past 5 years and I'm so far pleased with who I am today. I look forward to learning and growing more as a person each year. :)


This year for my birthday I am happy that I was able to celebrate with my babe Alicia, whose birthday fell on the 16th of July, while mine was on the 17th. Our "Double Trouble" took place on the 16th of July 2016 at Velvet, Zouk and the theme was "Dress Stunningly in White". As there were 2 of us, our guest list was pretty limited, so I'd like to apologize to those I did not invite, it was a tough decision for me. :(

I'd like to thank my best friends Natalie, Ian, Howe, and my boyfriend Jeremy for helping out in preparing this celebration. <3 Now let the pictures do the talking shall we? ;)

Pamper Your Eyebrows and Eyelashes. ;)

Hello, hello...


Who here can't leave their home without drawing their eyebrows or putting mascara or eye liner?

High 5! I can't leave my home without drawing my eyebrows, it's like a MUST thing even if it's just for lunch at a coffee shop outside. It's like an addiction to an extend I noticed my eyebrows were dropping! *HORROR*. Just a month ago when I was looking at my self in the mirror, I noticed how scarce and light my eyebrows were. Then I looked at my eye lashes and remembered how EVERYTIME when I remove mascara my eye lashes fall out too. :( Then thought to myself... "SHIT, I need to start applying serum on my eyebrows and eye lashes". If it's not this what are the other ways?

Speak of the angel, REALASH came to my life the following month. <3.




REALASH has been in the market for some time but recently they launched a whole new REALASH range catering to our different needs. Other than eyelash and eyebrows enhancers, they too have eyeliner, mascara, eye serum, and brow conditioner.



The special feature of the new Realash is its improved formula which makes it easy on the skin around the eye area - which is usually sensitive and more prone to allergic reactions. It feels more soothing and would not irritate the skin, and is suitable for use for people with sensitive skin. The improved formula also have a stronger growing effect and protects weak and damaged eyelashes.

 How to apply?: After cleansing, toning, and moisturizing your face, apply the serum. Here I am applying for my eye brows. Applying more layer will not fasten the growth process, so do not waste ya, just religiously apply daily will do. ;)

Next apply REALASH Eyelash Enhancer at the lids where your eye lashes grow. (Top + Bottom). In this picture I drew my eye brows so yeah try comparing with the previous photo and you will understand how i feel about my eyebrows :p. 

I've been using REALASH Eyelash Enhancer + REALASH Brow conditioner for about 1 week now and so far I noticed my eyebrows are slightly darker than before and my eye lashes looks slightly fuller as well! I was surprised too, no joke. Will continue to apply this for 30 days and let's see the results then!
