SWANICOCO x 50Gram | Beauty

I’m back! With yet another exciting news! One of Korea’s 2018 Hottest Brand – Swanicoco has brought to us something new last month. 😱 So so glad to be the first few to review it and it’s all thanks to 50Gram. Yes, one of the famous online florist in Malaysia. 🇲🇾 Curious about how the packaging and quality pay off? Scroll down your phone and mouse for the curiosity tsk tsk…

About SWANICOCO

Their journey started off just by creating natural fermented soaps. Each soap were made with the best medical herbs which went through boiling and fermentation. From there on, they slowly expanded their product range and it is now one of Korea top cosmetics company that sells natural products. The company upholds their motto which is “Work hard to create natural cosmetics for everyone”.

Product

Swanicoco Show The Velvet Lipstick Black Edition (Limited Edition), RM 88.85

So now, let me introduce to you Swanicoco Limited Edition, Juliet Red. 50Gram is the first to bring this product into Malaysia. Do take note that there are limited quantities, what makes it more special is that once it’s sold out on 50Gram, then it’s gone for good. So what makes it so special from the other lipsticks? 💄

Firstly would be the packaging, it’s matte finish packaging it’s really nice to carry around as I myself really like my things matte. Whereas the design point, I would say I give it a plus point for the twist lock cap. It gives me an assurance of bringing it overseas and never have to be afraid that the cap may come off. It happened twice with my other lipstick, which was really unfortunate as I have to discard them since it’s completely ruin.

Twist lock cap

Now, let’s talk a little about the texture of the product shall we? At first sight, I wasn’t expecting much from the usual lipstick. I swallowed back my words after I glide it on my hand for swatches. It’s texture is really creamy and does not feel dry. One of the reason is because the highlight of this lipstick is that it uses carnauba wax and natural oil which gives out moisture, long lasting and softening effects. The colour is really vibrant as well, really suitable for night events or performance. There’s a hint of orange in the firer red.

  • The colour looks more vibrant in real life than it is shown in the picture above

As a matter of fact, if you are not really into vibrant colour. You can actually glide it on your hand first, then slowly dab them on your lips. 👄 It gives a softer look and could instantly brighten up your face.

  • Just an everyday look with minimal makeup, the lipstick would goes well with any outfit. Red never goes wrong ❤️ (trying to fling my hair, but kinda fail 🙈)

All the ingredients contained in the lipstick are natural ingredients. As they maintain high standard quality products to serve their customers. Which of course includes ingredients such as Korean medical herbs 🌿, fruits 🍎, vegetables 🌽 and grains. Throughout the process, purified water was not used as they prefer fermented extract in 80% of their cosmetics.

Swanicoco only uses Korean natural herbs or ingredients that are certified from both United States and Australia. This explains why ingredients such as chemicals preservation, dyes and artificial fragrances are absent in any of their products.

  • The amount of product that you’ll be getting is as above. Considering the product is long lasting, the lipstick alone could last you for quite an amount of time

My Opinion

Overall this product is something I would buy. There are actually two more shades that 50Gram had not bring in, but I’m sure it’ll be at Malaysia’s doorstep in no time. Would I repurchase it? Yes I would. The twist lock cap and the texture is one of my favourite part about the lipstick. 💄 Somehow the finishing looks like matte but then when I’m wearing it on my lips, it still feels hydrated throughout the day. Another plus point is, I do not have to re-apply the lipstick as it’s quite long lasting. But it’s definitely not smudge proof, it does stain my cup or straw, but it’s very minimal compared to other lipsticks.

Overall Rating: 4.5 / 5

ID.AZ DERMASTIC Clay Mask | Beauty

Back with another product that every girl will definitely use, MASK ! Some of you might have heard and use ID.AZ sheet mask, but they just recently launched their new Clay Mask. There are a total of 4 different functions of clay mask to choose from, continue reading to find out more about it.

About ID

ID Hospital also known as ID ABC. The meaning behind the rhyme letter is Asian Beauty Center. It is a global cosmetic plastic surgery center located in Korea. So what does their hospital focus on?

It have learned and solved more than 60,000 concern of people regarding beauty.

ID.AZ

ID.AZ why do they include AZ in the product name? There is always meaning behind every word. It means encompassing everything from the starting, like the letter A all the way till the end, like the letter Z. I guess I have explained everything about their company as of now, so it’s time to talk about their newly launch products.

Products

*picture taken from google, credits to owner.

Sheet Mask

ID.AZ previously came out with their very own sheet mask which comes in three different packaging. It includes Gold-Fit Mask, Water-Fit Mask and Bright-Fit Mask. Gold Mask have the nutrition function because it contains 99% real gold which also give you a luxurious experience. (RM19.90 each) Next, their Water Mask is a skinny fit mask which contains hydrolyzed collagen that delivers deep moisture to the skin. (RM12.90 each) Lastly would be Bright Mask, the word bright already indicates it has brightening effect onto the skin after using. (RM12.90 each)

Clay Mask

Time for today’s highlight ✨ ID.AZ recently added four new products into their mask collection. This time instead of sheet mask, we’re looking at a more environmentally friendly product which is clay mask. It comes in four different functionality to suit different skin type, not to mention indifferent colours as well. 💛💕💚🖤

DERMASTIC BRIGHTENING CLAY MASK, RM 59 (150g)

The yellow 💛 one belongs to BRIGHTENING. It helps to brighten up your skin and makes it feel more alive. (vitalizing & tone up) Usually, I apply it mostly on my forehead as I have uneven skin tone. Maybe it’s due to having a high forehead and I’m always outdoor which means exposing my forehead to the sun. ☀️ Out of all the four products, this is my least favourite. I don’t know how to describe the smell but you will get what I mean after trying it out. If you don’t mind the smell and only look at its function, then this will work well for you.

Key Ingredient > Amazonian White Clay + Calamine + Vitamin C (Ascorbyl Glucoside)

DERMASTIC HYDRATING CLAY MASK, RM 59 (150g)

The pink 💕 helps in HYDRATING. It can keep your skin hydrated all day and energized. (moisturizing & soothing) This is one of my favourite among all as I have a really dry skin. I could apply it all over my face and let the magic works. Another plus point is because it has the best scent among the four. The vibrant pink gives it a nice colour for picture purposes too, especially when your having a sleepover party. One tube can share among all your friends and family.

Key Ingredient > Moroccan Lava Clay + Calamine + Calamine + Pomegranate

DERMASTIC OIL CONTROL CLAY MASK, RM 59 (150g)

The picture does not looks like it but it’s actually green 💚 in colour, OIL CONTROL. This helps to balance the skin oil which will give you a fresher looking complexion. I tried this for a few time now and it does work for me. I only apply it on my nose area, it works well for me throughout the whole day as it isn’t as oily as it was previously. As for the smell, it’s neutral.

Key Ingredient > Canadian Glacier Clay + Calamine + Avocado

DERMASTIC PORE CLEAN CLAY MASK, RM 59 (150g)

Here comes the grey 🖤 tube, it’s PORE CLEAN. I am sure most of us have pore issue, all the black heads and so. The benefits is it can provide soothing effects for both normal and sensitive skin while cleansing. Not only that, it also helps to exfoliate skin and tighten your pores. The scent is neutral so for people who does not like strong scent, it will work great for you. Use it before your makeup routine, it helps to tighten up the pore which means after applying foundation your skin would look flawless. Do take note to use it regularly or the result may vary.

Key Ingredient > Hawaiian Sea Silt Fermented Clay + AHA/BHA + Charcoal

Usage

Spread liberal amount on skin and let dry for 5 minutes. Rinse off thoroughly with warm water and remove all residue. Use once or twice per week.

*not more than 5 minutes! 🚨

Swatches

Opinion

Advantages

  • One tube can have a longer period of usage compare to a sheet mask.
  • Apply only on necessary/desired area.
  • Convenient to bring around and share with friends and family. (Instead of bringing >1 packets of mask sheet)
  • It tightens up once it dries up, gives your skin a slight firmness.
  • Disadvantages
    • It’s not as hydrating as sheet mask.
      Takes time to apply and remove, I find the washing off part takes quite a bit of my time as compare to just peeling off a sheet mask.

    Pictures

    • Favourite combination, hydrating & oil control.
    • Combination of brightening & pore clean

    Overall I would recommend the hydrating clay mask and oil control mask as I find it works really well on me. Another plus point would be environmental friendly products so I would love to share them with my family.

    Thank you The Butterfly Project for giving me this opportunity to review this products.

    Bare Essentials by Althea | Beauty

    Rumours has been spreading around for a few weeks that a new product is launching that comes familiar to many. Remember I was one of the lucky one to review Althea’s first ever product? If you have not read it, be sure to check it out here after this.

    Althea has done it again and surprised us with a new line of product, skin care. I believe if you are into beauty products, finding a suitable skin care products that fits you is something really important. So why not check their new range of skin care products?

    Before that, continue reading to find out more about it. There are a total of 3 items and each item that were launched are all important for everyday skincare routine. Have you guessed what are these products? Wait no further, its about time to discover the secret.

    The three products are,

    1. ALTHEA, Contour Cleanser
    2. ALTHEA, Primer Water
    3. ALTHEA, Fixer Cream

    Althea

    Opps, forgot to mention. You do know about Althea, right? If yes, yeah “kaki lang”, but if no. No worries, here’s a brief explanation. Althea is a website where you can find all the popular Korean products all in one place. They contain 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!

    Products

    1. ALTHEA, Contour Cleanser – RM 23

    Who does not want to obtain flawless skin? Then you should start by trying out Contour Cleanser, clear your pores from all the dirt and leaving you with a squeaky clean face. With that you need not to worry about applying thick base makeup or conceal your face with concealer. You can achieve all that just by using Althea Bare Essentials. Their contour cleanser comes with nourishing ingredients such as ice plant and lemon verbena leaf.

    • Just a small amount would do (in the picture above I squeeze out a bit more than it is needed)

    After applying it on your face you will feel that there is tiny tiny things on your face. Not to worry as they are actually micro bubbleshots. It will eventually pops when it get in contact with water. Micro capsules is there to gently but effectively exfoliate and improve the impurities from you skin. Whats more? It also claims to detoxify your skin to transform your face into a more defined and slim face shape.

    Usage

    Dampen the skin, then squeeze out a small amount (I would suggest just a tiny dot would do) and lather onto the face, massaging in circular motions. Rinse off with water after.

    Opinion

    When I was using it for the first time, I squeeze a large amount onto my palm and later realize that its really creamy and thick. Only during the second time I know that just a tiny squeeze from the tube is already able to wash of the dirt from our face. Compare to other cleanser that I have previously used, I think this cleanser can last me two or three time longer than my usual time period as the quality is really thick. The cooling effect that I receive after applying them off really caught me off guard. It surprise me but I like how it felt after a tiring day. As for packaging wise, its really simple and free from designs. Tbh,I sometime prefer it that way, as I find some products with too many design a bit distracting. Lastly I would say I did not really like the smell of it. Maybe there wasn’t any scent that was added so the smell are from all of their natural ingredients.

    Overall Rating: 4 / 5

    2. ALTHEA, Primer Water – RM 43

    Here comes the second steps where you get to hydrate your skin after cleansing. Unlike other toner, this primer water helps to hydrates and smooth your skin, leaving it to a flawless finishing. Say goodbye to uneven skin. The magic comes right after the primer touches your skin and penetrates deep into the layer of your skin. Your skin will instantly plump up and your ready for the last steps. 2 main ingredients that were just are as stated below.

    Snow lotus – Help to brightens and smooth out your skin.

    It can only be found in remotes areas in Asia, that what makes it one of the rarest herbs in the world. Brightening energy, fixing dark spot and anti aging effect are some of the benefits that is still trusted for women in Chinese Imperial Court for centuries, even up until today.

    Patented “dewdrop” formulation – Instantly moisturize and revitalizes you skin.

    Do you know clear dewdrops helps to soften the skin and improve suppleness by gently filling up the gaps between both skin and pores. (can be use for the 2nd time for a more smoother and velvety soft skin texture.)

    Usage

    Pour out a small amount of primer water onto your palm/a cotton and apply evenly onto the face. By gently patting it, a better absorption can be seen.

    Opinion

    I would first talk about the packaging, it really nice and simple. My worry is that its a bit too bulky to be brought along to traveling. If they could come out with another smaller version for traveling kit, that will be great and convenient. On the other hand, if you seldom travel, I think this would just be perfect as it is now. The texture is really unique compare to other toner that I have ever tried. Unlike the usual watery toner, this Althea primer water is much more thick, but it does not feel heavy nor slimy after applying. Instead my face felt really moisturize. After it had dried, my skin felt really smooth and not a single hint of stickiness. As for the smell, I’ll give it a 💯 as it smells really great. A hint of flower smell, something fresh and light. Not too strong to give your a headache. By far the best scent compare between all tree products. 💕

    Overall Rating: 4.5 / 5

    3. ALTHEA, Fixer Cream RM 50

    Last step of your routine! 🙈 Never stop your skin care routine before putting on some moisturizer. Out of all 3 products, I love this packaging the most as I have always been in love with matte materials. The texture is really thick but can be penetrates easily into your skin. Besides that, your skin will stay hydrated for the next 24 hours. Keeps your skin moisturize without feeling any stickiness after it was fully absorbed. Something you would not want to miss out to be part of your skin care collection. Few of the key ingredients will be listed below along with their functions.

Instead of using Chapayom in Malaysia, they name it Min Chaang. So what makes them stands out from other shops that sells Thai tea as well?

This way you will be able to taste the origin flavour straight from the tea leaf instead of artificial flavouring.

    Ever thought of doing eyelash extension? Or you have noticed many influencers with lashes that are on point or look up to other people that had their eyelashes done so well that it makes you want to try it out as well? Yup, that’s ME!

    Always thought they look really pretty with those lashes on. So I was thinking, why not I just give it a try. Seems cool and makes your eye looks bigger as well. So here is how my story goes.

    Before I did my appointment, I did googled many things, look them up if it’s a good or bad thing, whether there will be any side effects or nah, and a great amount of researching.

    The process

    It’s best to go without any makeup or eyeshadow near your eye area. If you’re asking if contact lenses are allowed in the process, it is your free will to decide. I wore mine on, it also depends on the person who’s going to apply the eyelash extension on. If you’re nervous because it’s your first time, I suggest you to remove your contact lens as you might feel a sense of insecurity with it on. It takes about an hour and half or two hours for it to be done depending on the lashes you want to have.

    What are my thoughts after having my eyelashes done?

    There are many benefits and there are some disadvantages as well. It just depends how your perspective is. You might always hear people mention that after doing eyelash extensions, your natural lashes would fall off as well. In my own perspective, after having it done, there wasn’t any drop out of my natural lashes. Everything is at it is. Here are some of my own opinions on the advantages and disadvantages.

    Advantages

    • I could wake up later and get my daily makeup done within 5-10 minutes. It was shorten as I do not have to draw eyeliner or even curl my lashes hence put on any mascara. After having your lashes done you feel like the moment you wake up, you already have 50% makeup on.
    • Going to university is even easier as I usually do not put any makeup on, but now, I’ll just have to pop my lenses in and I’m good to go.
    • Your eye would look bigger and brighter.

    Disadvantages

    • For a person who wear glasses 🤓 like me, will find trouble wearing them as the lashes are too long and it will keep touching the glasses. I’ll have to wear them uncomfortably and wear them lower so that it does not touches it. Most of the time I would have to keep my contact lens on until I’m ready to go to bed.

    *only applies to people who wears glasses*

    • When you remove makeup, and wash your face, you have to be careful of your lashes as you might rub onto it and it will fall of quicker.
    • Putting eyeliner is not really recommended anymore as I tried once, and when I use the remover, quite a number of fake eyelashes fall off. (Recommend not to draw liner if possible, I had no choice because I have to go for a shooting)
    • When your lashes starts to slowly fall off after a month, you find your eyelashes looks really irregular and weird, because holes will start popping out from the part that the lashes falls out.

    Overall I find it an interesting experience. The only weird part is after you remove or let all your fake lashes fall off, you will feel as if you have no more lashes. You have that feeling that, why are my lashes sooooooo short even though that’s how it’s original length is. It was just due to the fact that you got too used to seeing the extensions length.

    I did my lashes at Luminous Beauty Parlour. Stephy was really nice and gentle, I did not feel any pain at all throughout the whole process. I was practically lying down for 2 hours that made my neck ache a little. I would reckon they should get a softer pillow or towel to support the neck.
