Beauté Library | Beauty

To most people, facial treatment is their weekly or even monthly routine. As for me, it was my very first experience at Beauté Library. There is a total of 7 branches around Malaysia, I visited one of their flagship store which is located in Desa ParkCity. I tried out their Beauté Floral Essential Collagen Facial Treatment, RM880.

My Experience

Upon arrival, I found the place looking really luxurious and clean, and I was glad to have my first facial experience with Beauté Library. The staff there were really friendly and I was assisted in a consultation room to fill in my personal details and my daily skincare routine steps. I was told to have dry skin especially on my T zone.

Next, I was led to a private room where I changed my clothes and have my facial done. The place is small and cozy, beside the bed is a button for customers incase of the need of assistance.

The steps of the facial is like as stated below,

  1. Double Cleansing
  2. Pineapple Scrub
  3. Extraction
  4. Antiseptic Mint Hydromask
  5. Lavender Shoulder Massage
  6. Rose Collagen Essence
  7. Face Massage
  8. Floral Mask

I really enjoyed myself and I practically dozed off half way through the facial, it smells really good and it felt completely comfortable.

  • Here is a picture of me after going through the facial treatment. My face feels more softer and hydrated compared to when I first walked in.

Overall it was a great experience. I really loved their environment as it makes me feel like home.

Enchanted Siblings | Beauty

IMG_1384.JPG

Enchanted Siblings just turns two last month. You must be thinking, oh a new bakery shop in town just by looking at the picture above. Opps, unfortunately your mistaken it for a bakery shop as Enchanted Siblings is actually a beauty shop which provide Nail Services, Korea Eyebrow Embroidery, Nail Courses, PinkuBizu (Swarovski Crystal Bracelet) and others. They are well known for their nail services with pastel theme and adorable designs. What’s more? They are the first and only nail shop in Malaysia which provides authentic Swarovski Crystals design for your nails.

Enchanted Siblings

It was founded in 2015 by 3 siblings from the CHAN family. The 3 siblings are also the 3 elder sister of the Chan family which includes Celeste, Munny and Ylinn. They have a little brother which is also the youngest in the Chan family name KW Chan.You must be curious how their shop name comes about? As it is founded by the siblings of a Chan family, they decided to go with enCHANted siblings. It does makes sense and really suits their shop name as well.

Their very first shop is located in Sri Petaling, Cheras. They were also popular among all ages for their No.1 nail services in Malaysia in just a short period of 6 months after operating. Not only that, they were the fastest growing beauty salon in Malaysia which eventually lead them in opening a 2nd branch in Publika just after a year. Enchanted Siblings is certified by Swarovski which proved that they only uses authentic Swarovski Crystal supply from them. If you ever visited any of their branch, you will realize its either really pink or the colour of the shop is fills with pastel colours, there is a reason behind it as they are the 1st themed beauty prestige in Malaysia for each of their branches. For Sri Petaling branch its theme is Erelise (Pastel Home Theme) and as for Publika branch, from the outside it looks like a little pink palace as its theme is Lunaria Palace (Pink Heaven Palace Theme).

2nd Birthday Celebration

It was my very first time visiting their branch, before that i have only heard about them and never know they have theme outlets. I was taken aback by their unique designs and really have a bit of princess feelings. Upon registration we were given each person a goodie bag. The whole place is literally decorate with pastel colours. What’s make them unique is everything are their own creative ideas that bring Enchanted Siblings really enchanted. For example since its their birthday, they came out with various promotion for all their services. The best part is not your regular type which you just pay and register and that’s it, their way is you pick your services and they fill them with marshmallow for you to eat as well.

IMG_1351.JPG

  • Pick your promotion services along with some marshmallows. Aren’t it adorable?

They showcase all of their nail arts design for us to look through. It was literally breath taking, the design rages from classy, cute, animation, luxurious and many more. If you were there, you would not even know which design to start with as there were just too many to choose from. All the design are originally from them, all were design and created from the siblings creativity. Here are some of the Swarovski designs.

There were many other design as well but it will be quite inappropriate to show case them publicly online as we might not know who or where people would use it as their own design. I find it will be heart breaking when a person have to think and create the design them self but in the end credits were just taken away by others just like that. If you really would like to check out their design you could always drop by their branch to have a look. Colours plays an important role as well, they provide a wide range of colours to choose from. If you know which colours suits you or what is your favourite colour, then that would be great. For some people like me who often has no idea what colour to use as the base, I would always pick the design first and ask for their suggestion on which colours would go well.

IMG_1345

Special activities were arranged on that day, one of my favourite activity would be customize our own PinkuBizu bracelets. There were sample of ready made bracelets as well, if you like it, you can purchase them on the spot, but if your someone as adventurous like me, then I take on the challenge to make my own instate. To me, making my own limited bracelet would be so meaningful. You will not find anyone wearing the same design as you, makes me has a limited edition bracelets. We get to pick our favourite beads and turn them into a unique bracelet along with a piece of Swarovski crystal on them.

  • The first picture was me in progress of making my very own PinkuBizu bracelet. Where on the next picture is my final look of my finish bracelet. Isn’t it pretty? Suitable for every occasion, doesn’t leave your hand empty and just the right accessories to make you look gorgeous.  Last picture are some of their ready made PinkuBizu bracelets. All of their bracelet comes with a authentic Swarovski Crystal dangling from the middle.

After having my own customized bracelet, I saw another eye catching hands on products that we were given to try out which is Dream Catcher!

There were many unique colours which are already pre package in a tiny bag. Curious which colour I gotten? We were given by random colours so it’s a bit of surprise as well. I got… drumrolls*……..

Green colour dream catcher with a hint of blue feathers for it to dangle around. I spend quite an amount of time just to cover up the silver ring with the green string. I always admire those beautiful dream catcher when shops sells them. Now I know the feeling of actually making it could be really difficult and takes up a lot of time, but imagine having a self made dream catcher dangling in your room, all the hard work is worth it. 🙈

Overall it’s a really enchanted event, I love their decorations and they were really friendly and patient. I got my nail done at their Publika branch about one week after the celebration. Curious how my nails looks like and which design I pick? I decided to try out their famous Swarovski nail design at one on each hand. Really blown away by the designs as I get to pick which design I would like on each fingers.

I was really satisfied with the result as none of the Swarovski Crystals fell of or so. Some nail parlour I went previously, the gem stone would fall off when I wash my hair or so, glad their quality was as promised. My friends and family often gave compliments about my nails. Thank you Enchanted Siblings for the wonderful service and invites to their 2nd Anniversary Celebration. 🎊

Horien Eye Secret Lens | Beauty

I’m not sure if some of you, yes you, my audience have noticed or not. Whenever I attend any event or head out, I will always wear my contact lens. You would probably only see me wearing my glasses during normal occasions like attending classes or just chilling at home. To me, having a comfortable and trust worthy brand is important. I’m always out there finding a brand that would really suit me and make my eyes look brighter and a bit bigger. And so, I gave Horien Eye Secret a try.

Horien Eye Secret

52122307_a2.jpg

Horien Optic (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd is a Malaysia based company which does primary business of importing and distributing all the contact lens and product of Eye Secret. Whereas, EyeSecret is a contact lens and lens care brand that is manufactured in Taiwan by Yung Sheng Optical Co. Ltd.

Yung Sheng Optical Co. Ltd. was found in 2011. Major business is manufacturing and sales of soft contact lens and lens care product. With its innovative R&D team, advanced manufacturing facilities and professional marketing and sales group, Yung Sheng has received the following: ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 13485:2003 certifications, Japan’s FMA (Foreign Manufacturer Accreditation), European CE and Taiwan GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) aiding expansion in our global market.

Details

I was given the opportunity to review Horien Eye Secret 38% Moisture, 3 months contact lens. For this category, they are separated into 2 series which includes FantasySeries (3 Tone) and Sweet Heart Series (2 Tone). In Fantasy Series you have two choices to choose from and as for Sweet Heart Series, you have 4 colours to choose from which makes it a total of 6 colours.

Product Specifications

Material: Polymacon

Water Content: 38%

BC: 8.7mm

DIA: 14.2mm

Power: 0.00, -1.00 ~ -10.00 (-1.00 ~ -6.00, one power for every 0.25; -6.00 above, one power for every 0.50)

Package Size : 2 pieces in a box

Highlights

38% Low Water Content Lens

Their lens uses 38% water content which could slow down the speed of water loss on your lens. This could prevent dryness to your eyes and can keep your eyes moisture through out the day. It also contains Sodium Hyaluronate and Trehalose which is the perfect formula to increase comfortability and moisture.

BMW 3D Wrap Colouring Method

Unlike the conventional contact lens, the Horien Eye Secret ensures that no colouring additives are to be leached out. This is because the colour additives are wrapped by HEMA and thus providing maximum comfort. Another which is the sophisticated pad printing machine that can produce high quality pattern in the female mold, allowing minimal contact between the colour and the eye directly and increases sharpness as well as visual accuracy. Besides, the colour lenses is produced through filling and thermal process. Compared with the traditional Sandwich method, Horien’s lenses have flat surfaces that will not crack easily.

BMW 3D Wrap Technology

UV Protection Function

Horien Eye Secret lenses all comes with UV protection. Their lens can block harmful UV lights as well as blocking UVA and UVB to slow down aging corner.

Artificial Intellectual

In order to optimize its lenses, Horien uses a dual aspheric design technology to reach high comfort wearing and high definition vision. In order to allow the lens to provide crisp clear visual in dark environment and at night, improvement of optical aberrations formed by traditional spherical lens is needed and that is what Horien Eye Secret achieved.

My Opinion

I was given 2 colours to try out which includes Vancouver Pink and Madrid Grey. Their packaging is cute and is very light to carry around.

1. Madrid Grey

I really love grey contact lenses as I find it really suits me. But for most grey lenses that I wear, doesn’t really stands out. Great thing is Horien Eye Secret contact lens does that for me. From the lens itself its mostly grey, but I like how it looks like a 2 in 1 colour as after wearing it, my eyes has a hint of light blue colour as well. It looks so special and I really love it.

2. Vancouver Pink

7583920560_img_1795

I’m not much of a pink fan, but this colour isn’t as vibrant as the previous lens. However, it is still good to have a change of colour once in while because even I would get bored of a certain colour if used frequently. So I might probably will wear this colour for my upcoming ballet performance as my costume are all red, so it should really go well with it.

Sometimes when I want to make things look a bit more fun and special, I would mix around the colours. Definitely not my first time doing this and definitely not my last time as well.

I wore Madrid Grey on my right side (left side from readers POV) and Vancouver Pink on my left side (right side from readers POV).

Overall its a great experience as this is my first time using contact lenses from Horien Eye Secret. Compare to others it really does not dry up my eyes as frequent as some of the other brands that I use before. Usually I use eye drops more or less 5 times a day, but after trying this brand, I only use as little as one drop per day. Really satisfied with the quality that this brand promises.

Before & After

  • Left picture is before wearing Horien Eye Secret contact lens. Right picture is after wearing Horien Eye Secret, Madrid Grey contact lens.

Once again thank you Horien Eye Secret for giving me an opportunity to review the 38% moisture, 3 months contact lenses.

13310593_899008396892394_7050668471974813421_n

Ever thought of having French cuisine one day after feasting your eyes with delicious French food on television or even on reality show? Do not have the money to travel there to enjoy their mouth watering dishes. Guess what, you can try them now at a French Restaurant located in the heart of Kuala Lumpur. They serve from main dishes to pastries that can guarantee you will fall in love with. And I have GREAT NEWSChez Lèoniel came out with an afternoon Hi Tea set that is really suitable for pastry lovers. You can have your Hi Tea at Chez Lèoniel every week without any worry as they changes their Hi Tea set weekly!

Croque monsieur

  • A croque monsieur is a traditionally made boiled ham
    between slices of brioche-like pain de mie topped with grated cheese and slightly
    salted and peppered, which is baked in an oven or fried in a frying pan. The dish
    can also be made with normal butter bread,with a soft crust. A simple, cheap
    version uses square toast. Instead of the butter bread, the bread may optionally
    be browned by grilling before being dipped in beaten egg. Traditionally,
    Emmental or Gruyère is used, or sometimes Comté cheese as well. Some
    brasseries also add Béchamel sauce.

*Pictures taken from Google.

Gratin dauphinois 

  • Gratin dauphinois is a traditional regional French dish based on potatoes and crème fraîche, from the historic Dauphiné region in southeast France. There are many variants of the name for the dish, including pommes de terre dauphinoise, potatoes à la dauphinoise and gratin de pommes à la dauphinoise.

*Pictures taken from Google.

I was glad to be invited by Chef Leoniel DG to try out their Hi Tea set along with 3 of my friends. So here’s a picture of what we got for our set. Remember please do not expect the exact same pastries for your Hi Tea set when you visit as they changes their Hi Tea set weekly.

 First Tier

It consist of two pastries:

  • Fruit Panier
  • Apple Turnover

For the Fruit Panier, they serve in 4 different flavour. Not sure what flavour is it, but from my perspective there is Mango, Raspberry, Strawberry and I have no idea. Haha! But trust me, it is really delicious. They wrap the filing really well with croissant. Neither its too soft nor too hard, just perfect. As for the Apple Turnover, its equally tasty as well. The apple filling was wrap in croissant as well if I’m not mistaken.

Second Tier

It consist of three pastries:

  • Financier
  • Macaroons
  • Pain Au Chocolat

Out of this 3 pastries, my favourite would be Pain Au ChocolatThis pastry is basically croissant fill with chocolate on the inside. Not too much, but the right amount of chocolate which its just right for the pastry. Next, Macaroons which comes in 2 flavours. You can either share half with your partner to try out both flavours or each of you pick out your favourite flavour. Financier is a type of cake origin from France. There are 4 pieces which includes 2 original flavour and 2 almond flavour.

Third Tier 

It consist of three pastries:

  • Apple Pie
  • Quiche Chicken Ham and Cheese
  • Croissant

My favourite for this tier would be their Quiche Chicken Ham and Cheese. There is cheese on top and ham on the inside, something you would truly like I believe. Oh and the crust was just nice, not too thick or too thin. Next on the plate was Croissant, this time you will get the chance to try out their original croissant without any filling. Lastly would be their Apple Pie. They slice it in the shape of a pizza, really adorable and instagram worthy.

All in all it was a great experience. I forgot to mention that we had Red Fruit Tea, it goes perfectly well with the pastries. In my opinion you can actually have 2-3 pax for the high tea if its all girls. Please take note that their location is a bit complicated, but you be able to find it by having the correct address. You can find the place by either choosing the few address below in waze, ‘Alliance Francaise’ or ’15 Lorong Gurney’. Once again thank you Chef Leoniel DG for the invites.

Chef Leoniel

Beauty Lifeguard Unboxing from Althea | Review

I finally got a chance to do an unboxing review on one of Althea Beauty Box. Isn’t this exciting?! 🙈 Some of you might already heard about Althea Beauty Box, but as for the others, you might have not even heard about it. So why not I brief you through about Althea and their Beauty Boxes before showing you what I got my hands on in this box?

Althea


Althea is a website where you can find all the popular Korean products all in one place. They contains more than 150 Korean beauty brand just for you to browse through and shop them all just by a few clicks from your laptop/desktop. Althea was founded in 2015 by Frank Kang. He had the thinking of providing buyers from all around the world with one of the lowest price they could get from Althea website just as how Korean residents shop in their own country. Althea is like a representative of Korea to provide authentic K-beauty product just for YOU!

Althea Beauty Box

Althea Beauty Box contains of different cosmetic brands all in one box. Anything could be in that box, it depends on the theme Althea came out with. It all happened when there were many customers requesting Althea to come out with their own beauty box. So without disappointing their loyal and excited customers, they launched their first beauty box on October 2016. Each month they would come up 2-3 beauty box just for you. Each boxes would usually contains 6-12 pieces of size products depending on their theme. All of their beauty boxes usually comes up to RM300-RM600+, but they only sell them at barely RM100+!! So better get your hands on one of your favourite beauty boxes before they are fully sold out.

Beauty Lifeguard Box #26This box literally contains everything I need in my daily life. I am an active person and being outdoor is one of my favourite things. There was one obstacle that I would always face when I’m doing any sporty or sweaty activities. My makeup would easily get smudge. 🙁 Thanks to Althea, my problem is solved.

Beauty Lifeguard Box contains 5 full size products which includes:

  1. Tony Moly, BCDATION OiOi Waterproof Cushion (23 warm beige)
  2. Milky Dress, Mascara
  3. VDL, Eye Primer (serenity)
  4. Wangskin, Lip Tattoo Tint Pack (pink)
  5. Holika Holika, Face Conditioner Long Lasting Makeup Fixer

So why did they name the box Lifeguard Box? I guess because all the products in the boxes are either smudge proof or waterproof. For some people who could not leave house with a slight touch of makeup even though your going for swimming or sports, the products contained in the box would be just what you need.

1. Tony Moly, BCDATION OiOi Waterproof Cushion (23 warm beige)

My very first waterproof foundation. It’s packaging is very trendy and cute, cover itself with blue colour surrounded by bananas. 🍌 This foundation provide sun care as it is SPF50+ PA+++. Not only that, it helps really well in coverage and helps in anti aging as well as brightens up your skin.

  • You can see before applying, the pores are visible and after applying it looks smoother and the pore are almost invisible.

  • It’s texture is very smooth and after applying the foundation, you can see from the picture it’s totally waterproof. 💦

Opinion

The size of the foundation is really slim and compact compare to the current one in using. It’s almost half the size of my current foundation and it can be easily slide into my purse. The packaging is really cute and it suits my age perfectly. Love how it does not have the stickiness effect after applying on the skin, instead it has a Matte feeling. One thing that I did not really like is the smell of it, it may be just me, but overall it’s a thumbs up 👍🏻 for this product.

  • The mascara brush has a c-curl design which helps in improving the curl and volume of your lashes.

  • After using the mascara, it does have a slight curling effect as you can see in the picture above. I really like how it could make my lashes looks longer.

Opinion

The packaging itself is really beautiful, it had a luxury and classy feel to it. It’s very light to carry around in my bag. I really like how it make my lash looks longer, but as for curling, it might have a slight help but nothing more. The c curl design make it very easy to apply. Not recommend for any sporty or water events as it easily comes out, but if you look on the bright side, it’s easy to wash off after using mascara without any worries.

3. VDL, Eye Primer (serenity)
6174641936_img_1423-1To be honest, this is my first primer I ever had. I don’t usually own a primer as I would normally prefer light make up compare to dark makeup. After owning one I realize it helps to locks my eyeshadow in place through out the day. I don’t have to touch up my eyeshadow every few hours and it still looks great by the end of the day. This primer helps to correct any redness and transform it into a flawless canvas.

  • Even though you see it’s in a light blue colour, but it would slowly blend in with your skin tone.

  • As you can see from the picture, before I head for my concert practice and after the practice, the eyeshadow still stays perfectly fine.

Opinion

The product is light but I don’t have to carry it all around with me as it is a one time usage that could last all day for me. Perfect for my upcoming concert performance. Easy to use and apply for beginners.

Lips tattoo is most women favourites. You just have to apply it once in the morning and it got you cover through out the day. You don’t have to worry your lips will look pale or even stain your straw or cups when your drinking. Suitable for every occasion including your daily work or university looks.

  • The pink colour is very beautiful pink. It instantly brightens up your whole look. After seeing the picture above, you might think the pink is too bright or neon. But don’t judge just by its look, read further down and you be surprise the colour is just perfect. 👌🏻

  • Before applying my lips looks pale and dry, after applying it looks stunningly beautiful,but…it’s not the end of it. You have to peel of that layer after 5-10 minutes depends on how thick you apply on. No.3 is the result I got.

Opinion

The shade really suits me. After applying, it’s very easy to peel it off. It all comes off in one peel. One highlight I would like to make is, there is no need to worry if I would smudge or stain my teeth. It’s a tint after all. Yea! After using through out the day, it does feel dry but on my lips, but lip balm and flower is there to make your colour look more vibrant.

5. Holika Holika, Face Conditioner Long Lasting Makeup Fixer

There is always a first for everything right? So here goes my first makeup fixer spray by Holika Holika. It keeps your makeup sets throughout the day without worrying it would smudge and in the same time, it keeps your face moisture. It uses a long lasting formula to sets your makeup in place.

  • Look at the difference what Holika Holika can make. Taking makeup to a whole new level by setting all your daily makeup to smudge proof.

Opinion

Not really advisable to bring it everywhere, because it can be quite heavy, but here is a small tip. You can pour some into a smaller bottle to safe up your space during traveling. For me it works really well for my usual eyeliner. Usually it get smudge easily, but now I’m a happy kid not needing to get a waterproof eyeliner. 💕 One last thing, I really love the smell of the product.
