(Review) ALL Make Up Babies from The Butterfly Project 4th Birthday Bash

Hello lovelies, I am sure by now you have seen a lot of butterflies sharing the unbag-ing of the Butterfly tote!
If you did not know what we got for The Butterfly Project second party hosted by mamasan Tammy, you may check out my selfie with the goodies at the mid of the post HERE.

Third part of the post will only cover the items like my title said, MAKE UP ONLY!

I love make up as much as I love skincare.
Make up helps to enhance my features!
Or even become another person, sometimes.
However, I will need to brush up my makeup skills.
*long way to go*
^^

Overall, my confidence is elevated with the use of makeup coz I do not have flawless skin.
Do note that I DO NOT doll myself always, only for events, and not the FULL full make up kind.
Also, my makeup skills are all learnt a bit here and there from Youtube Beauty Gurus, Michelle Phan, Bubzbeauty, Meejmuse and more!!!

So, the question for you here is, "Are you more of a Skincare person or Makeup person?"
"And WHY?"

Comment down below so I can get to know what you look forward in reading!
^^

1028 Big Eyes Magnifier Mascara   (RM59.90)

Brand: 1028
Item: Big Eyes Mascara
Content: 8ml
Origin: Taiwan
Rating: 2.5/5

That diamond-shaped brush is love!

Pros:
Lengthen my lashes.
Lashes are soft and natural to touch.
Coats each lashes effectively with the diamond-shaped brush.
Resist to touch. No fall out throughout the day (6 hours trialed by me).

Cons:
Gives little volume.
It does not hold curled lashes.
Opens up my peepers for just less than an hour and its straight for the rest of the day :/

Overall:
I personally would still prefer my own Benefit Roller Lash Mascara as it significantly makes my eyelashes more visible for both top and lower lashes. It also hold my curled lashes longer than 1028 Big Eye Mascara. What I like about 1028 Big Eye Mascara is that there are no clumps and most importantly my lashes are still soft to touch. <3

Dolly Wink Liquid Eyeliner WP Super Black   (RM69.90)

Brand: Dolly Wink
Item: Eye Liner
Origin: Japan
Rating: 4/5

Look at the super fine "felt" brush tip

The cloud & D is Dolly Wink Liquid Eye Liner.
The ugly flower and M is Mamonde liquid Eye Liner.

Pros:
Quick-dry.
Achieve super fine strokes easily.
Resist to touch too. No fall out after 6 hours.
Contains beauty essences to nourish skin (as claimed).
Waterproof (Really resistant to sweat/water/tears/sebum and all coz I was cooking earlier at the California Raisins event)

Cons:
None so far.

Overall:
I personally prefer this Dolly Wink Liquid Eye Liner to Mamonde Long Lasting Liquid Eyeliner as one of my eyelid is thinner so a brush that can create finer strokes would be of my preference. Dolly Wink eye liner is great for a natural makeup look ^^


~~~


Mamonde Long Lasting Liquid Eyeliner   (RM39)
(01 Black; waterproof effect)


Brand: Mamonde
Item: Liquid Eye Liner
Content: 4ml
Origin: Korea
Rating: 3.5/5

The cloud & D is Dolly Wink Liquid Eye Liner.
The ugly flower and M is Mamonde liquid Eye Liner.

Pros:
Super waterproof (Does require more time to remove, vs Dolly Wink)
Felt brush kind where it can draw fine (but not as fine as dolly wink!) and dark, vivid strokes.

Cons:
Since the brush is softer compared to Dolly Wink, I think I personally find it slightly hard for me to control the strokes. Not a big deal though.

Overall:
This would come in handy if I am creating dramatic eye look / night look. This is because of vivid strokes that last all day. I am quite confident that you would still look great after a night of partying and sweating / crying etc!

Orkid Cosmetics Matte Suede Cream Liquid Lipstick   (RM39/ea)

It is a halal beauty brand created by a local blogger.
Their matte suede lipsticks are most popular!

Here we are given 4 best new colors to try!

Thank you Orkid Cosmetics!

Brand: Orkid Cosmetics
Item: Matte Suede Creamy Liquid Lipstick
Content: 3.25ml
Origin: Malaysia
Rating: 3/5

Pros:
All are pigmented.
Slanted wand helps in application.
Does not dry out my lips as it is enriched with Vitamin E.
Product dries up pretty fast, leaving minimal to no color transfer.
Re-application is a breeze & does not leave any patchy or uneven look to it. ^^

Cons:
It is eaten away quickly during a meal leaving an unpleasant patchy lips behind. 

*Formulated without parabens, mineral oil, phthalates, triclosan, sodium lauryl sulfate, gluten*

Overall:
I like the color as it is pigmented on first swatch. Slanted wand are great for application and smoothness of product that doesn't dry out my lips. <3 It is however eaten away and I am finding ways to reduce the fall as much as possible.
They did mention to try to reduce oily food intake!

Swatches and description are as below:

(Top - Bottom) : Mars, Blush, Turnt, Vibes

Vibes
Its more of a brown-nude color. Sis said it does not really suit me as it makes me look too mature.

California Raisin event

Blush
Its more of blushing with red undertone color. This suits me more than Vibes, but a tad bit light and slightly making me look sick-ish! Natural and feminine for everyday make up wearer though.

At Miss Chinese World 2017 Grand Final event

Mars
More bright red giving me a more energized and ready to rock an event!
This color suits me the most, as agreed by sis. ^^

A night out event over dinner, wine and beer.

Turnt
A dark brown tone.
Avid lippies I know of super love this.
I like browns just that I am not a constant make up wearer so I am actually afraid that I may not be able to pull off the look!
I actually like it!
What do you think?
A night out over dinner, cocktails, & mocktails

So which color suits me the most?
Comment down below! ^^

!

Brand: W. Lab
Item: Eye Shadow Palette
Content: 10g
Origin: Korea
Rating: 4/5

Blooming palette of 10 beautiful colors.

Pros:
Colors are buildable and vibrant.
Colors are quite easily picked up.
Brushes are ok to use, but I like to use mine from Cyber Color, duo brush.
Since it came in both matte and shimmer, it has multiple uses, not limited just as eye shadow.
Various eye make up can be created from this palette!

Cons:
Some fall out, especially the shimmer ones.
Matte ones are slightly more pigmented than the shimmery ones.

Overall:
I love how versatile this palette can be used.
Now I have quite a few palettes and feel blessed already.
Just need to brush up my skill and learn more tricks in creating beautiful eye shadow.

Wanderlust Things Unicorn Face Makeup Brush   (RM89)

I fell in love with the brushes omg.
The first thing I felt is they are just toooo pretty to use!
Thanks Wanderlust Things for my first unicorn brushes ever and I got their face set!
Have been scouting for one quite a few weeks back.

Some of my friends got the eye set. At first I was like, "Good! Coz I don't really apply much eye shadows." Then I felt, "I need to get the eyes set too! Coz have been playing with eye shadows lately and loving it!

Wanderlust Things offer more than just unicorn brushes, but let's focus on unicorn brushes first!

Feels like a happy unicorn!

Key in code if you would like to get any items from them:
"BUTTERFLY 45" for a 10% discount code before you check out Wanderlust Things!

Unicorn Face Makeup Brush Set includes (L-R):
Highlight Brush
Contour Brush
Foundation Brush
Powder Brush
Blush Brush
*I am not sure if I labelled correctly or not*

My bunny loves unicorn too!
Coz they are as soft and attractive as my bunny here!
The beautiful bristles are synthetic with a sturdy matte horn handle.

Two is not enough.
You may use it for different purpose too and not limiting to what brush it actually is, I think.

She just needs three more.
Greedy bunny! Lol

Brand: Wanderlust Things
Item: Unicorn Face Makeup Brush
Content: 5 pieces
Origin: Malaysia

Pros:
They are soft and pretty.
Easy to use and picks up powder nicely.

Cons:
It would be great if they have a card (physical / online) noting which brush is which as beginner or noobs like me cannot 100% recognize what it is for and just use as I go.
Brush quality and use is great so far!

Overall:
Not much experience with brushes coz I use only 4 brushes (of my own) for my full make up routine, most of the time.
Base on my shallow experience in brushes, I personally think they are really aesthetically beautiful to the eyes, soft to the skin and good to use (if I really really need to use it I will, gonna go clean them now coz just tried them ^^) but it is a definite collectible for make up junkie! <3

Their shop just has the cutest thing!
Lip / Moustache pacifier, harry potter brush, pet & owner best friend tag etc....

I am so happy when I finally got to review one of Althea's box.

It cost RM120 (items cost RM419) for 7 full sized items!

Thank you Althea pixies for sending theses babies over! Love it!
Already fallen in love for its packaging!
And got the Limited Edition Raya box!
<3
Can you guess which is my favorite?^^


~~~


First up according to skincare step:

After cleansing, NEVER SKIP Toner:

Brand: Chica-Y-Chico
Item: Skin Texture Toner
Content: 200ml
Origin: Korea
Cost: RM64.00
Rating: 4/5
Re-purchase: Yes

Skin Type: Dry & Sensitive skin

Ingredients:
Water, Butylene Glycol, Betaine, Glycerin, Beta-Glucan, Niacinamide, Lactobacillus / Soybean Extract Ferment Filtrate, Lactobacillus / Phaseolus Radiatus Seed Ferment Filtrate, Saccharomyces / Coix Lacryma-Jobi Ma-yuen Seed Ferment Filtrate, Lactobacillus/ Rice Ferment Filtrate, Saccharomyces / Barley Seed Ferment Filtrate, Origanum Vulgare Leaf Extract, Mentha Viridis (Spearmint) Leaf Extract, Melissa Officinalis Leaf Extract, Monarda Didyma Leaf Extract, Ocimum Basilicum (Basil) Leaf Extract, Salvia Officinalis (Sage) Leaf Extract, Portulaca Oleracea Extract, Plantago Asiatica Extract, Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Extract, Panthenol, Allantoin, Sodium Hyaluronate, Sodium Polyacrylate, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate, Adenosine, Bacopamonniera Extract, PEG-8, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Ascorbic Acid, Zanthoxylum Piperitum Fruit Extract, Pulsatilla Koreana Extract, Usnea Barbata (Lichen) Extract.
*NO artificial fragrance / color*

The power of Naturally Fermented Seed Bascillus:
Germinated Brown Rice: Giving glow
Germinated Barley: Controlling sebum
Germinated Soybean : Anti-aging, nutritive
Germinated Mung Beans: Soothing, firming
Germinated Adlay: Skin texturizing, whitening

Skin Concerns:
Dull skin tone
Rough, dry skin
Good for basic hydration
Good for sensitive, irritating skin
Wants soft, moisturizing exfoliation
Wants to give more vitality and firming

Directions:
For normal use as toner step, use it with a cotton pad and swipe from centre to outer.
As firming toner, keep toner in fridge and moisten cotton pad with it when you need to use. Soak them on you face and after a while pat for better absorption & soothing as well as firming of skin.

Thoughts:
I have no allergic reaction.
Skin is smooth and moisturised.
Scent of fermented barley-ish in my opinion.
It does not leave a sticky/oily sensation once product dries.
I love how gentle it is that I think I don't need extra exfoliation.
I think my forehead lines have become less visible coz less buildup of dead skin cells.
This toner has become part of my routine and my skin is loving it! ^^

Next step is Mask:

Brand: Lebaton
Item: Pearl Whitening Essence Mask
Content: 23g
Origin: Korea
Cost: RM3.00
Rating: 3.5/5
Re-purchase: Yes
Recommended for: Dull skin

Main Ingredients:
Pearl Extract - Reduce discolorations and dark spots, leaving radiant and glowing skin.
Natural ingredients (Centella Asiatica Extract, Ginkgo Biloba Leaf Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract & Barbadensis Leaf Extract) - soothes sensitive skin for a healthier looking complexion.

Skin Concerns:
Firming
Radiation
Brightening

Directions:
Apply mask for about 10-20 mins. Then tap in remaining essence.

Thoughts:
Light floral smell and I LOVE IT!
Throughout the application, the mask is still wet with essence. Upon removal it does take some time before the skin dries. I massaged a bit to speed up the drying process.
Once it dries, there is still stickiness but face is brighter. I accidentally used my palm to touch the part and it left this floral smell which I love. However I like to sleep with my face down so I had to wash it off, still my face is soft! ^^
Soft and elastic 100% cotton, feels like a second skin! <3
The fitting is almost perfect (I blame my non-symmetrical chubby face). You can see the folding and face at my IG (@beeleec).
No allergic reaction.

Never forget your Eye Cream:

Brand: Milky Dress
Item: Wrinkle & Whitening Eye Cream
Content: 15ml
Origin: Korea
Cost: RM19.00
Rating: 3.5/5
Re-purchase: Maybe
Recommended for: Aging & Dark/dull eye rims

Eye Concerns:
24 Hour Eye Protect
Brightening & Elasticity Care

Directions:
Apply adequate amount before applying cream, and gently tap to absorb.

Thoughts:
Light gel texture.
Mild scent of honey. Love it.
I love that it moisturizes my eye area without causing any millea seed formation.
It does leave a near to no sticky/oily sensation once product is absorbed.
However, I am unsure about the dark circle part as I need to use it longer before I can comment on it.

Lastly, apply serum/ampule before your moisturizer step:

Brand: Real Skin
Item: One Shot Ample -- White Jade
Content: 10g
Origin: Korea
Cost: RM46.00
Rating: 4/5
Re-purchase: Yes
Recommended for: Dull Skin

Main Ingredients:
Glutathione - makes clear, transparent skin
Fermented argan, green tea seed and olive oil - achieving glowing skin  

Skin Concerns:
Most suitable for those with dull skin issue. With this, you can achieve brighter skin more easily.

Directions:
After toner and lotion, apply like applying cream.
Apply to troubled area 2-3 times a day.
Use all over face for greater effect.
*One ample lasts a week!*

Thoughts:
It has different shot for different concerns.
All types of skin are okay to use.
More of a rich creamy texture.
It has a parfum-ish scent.
It does leave a near to no sticky/oily sensation once product is absorbed.
I think my overall skin has become fairer-ish?


~~~


Below are a few make up items I use recently to quickly help me achieve a naturally fair, glowing & radiant skin:


First up is make up base / primer:

Brand: Skinfood
Item: Pore Fit Skin Primer
Content: 10g
Origin: Korea
Rating: 4/5
Re-purchase: Yes


Main Ingredients:
Vita-complex - helps in skin renewal  

Function:
Cover pores, concentrate brightening with pinky gold pearl primer

Directions:
Multi-primer - can be used both before and after make up

Thoughts:
I am surprised as this is my FIRST ever balm type of primer. I love just how it subtly gave me the glow while making a smooth skin base. It does not have coverage though.
My make up also stays on longer throughout the day! ^^
I also think that it can lasts longer than the primer in tubes.
I personally just simply dab and swipe, cause I am unsure at times if the balm actually went on every inch of my face or not. 
XD
Almost forgot to tell you the scent, somewhat parfum-ish that isn't too overwhelming for me.

Next would be cushion / foundation:

Brand: A'PIEU
Item: Air Fit Cushion Bboyan - Apricot

(SPF50+ / PA+++)
Content: 14g
Origin: Korea
Rating: 4/5
Re-purchase: Yes


This is my first ever cushion case too.
Not sure what to expect but I have already fallen with its packaging.



Main Ingredients:
Rice Bran Water - Natural skin turnover / soften skin
Milk Protein Extract - Refining skin texture

Function:
Naturally tones up dull, uneven skin tone.

Directions:
I read from an article, it says that concealers are supposed to be used AFTER cushion foundation to avoid cakey-ness.

<3 <3 <3

Please don't be scared, below are my swatches of this cushion.

My full face has the Skinfood balm primer (no coverage).
Left is WITHOUT A'pieu cushion.
Right is WITH A'pieu cushion.
You can clearly see one side is brighter and redness is reduced.

Not my best angle but I gotta show you anyways!
#1 is WITHOUT A'Pieu cushion foundation.
#2 is WITH A'Pieu cushion foundation.
Dark eye circle at #2 is lesser than #1.
Overall tone up more obvious at forehead.

This is my full face WITH A'pieu cushion foundation.
It has mild coverage only so it is advisable to go with concealer too but I have not been using concealer for quite sometime, even when attending events, so I hope I did not scare anyone.
Will try with concealer ones soon.

Thoughts:
It has a nice fragrance of rice (I think) that is refreshing for me.
Need to buy more cushion as I wanna keep this as hygienic as possible.
Moderate coverage only so do apply concealer after the cushion for a more flawless finish.
Using cushion alone helps me tone up instantly and achieve a more dewy skin.
My go-to for lazy days or when I have insufficient time for make up.
(Recently abandoned my liquid foundation and concealer)
I am always fascinated when I remove half of my make up from my face.
It is lightweight and comfortable for me.
Lasting power I think quite long, never truly timed.
I think the color does not really oxidize coz I observe no change of color after hours of wearing it. 

Lastly, Highlight your features!

Brand: The Saem
Item: Saemmul Single - Blusher Gold Volume Light (GD01)
Content: 5g
Origin: Korea
Rating: 4/5
Re-purchase: Yes

The texture is of very fine powder with 7 jewel complex.

Function:
Shimmer gold highlighter to fix your makeup and light up your best features with natural-shine finish.

Directions:
Dust at desired area like brow bone, cheeks, nose bridge, etc.


Thoughts:
Parfum-ish smell. Very familiar but cannot identify what is it yet.
Pick up powder easily and is very pigmented, so a little goes a long way.
I can vision myself wearing it a lot! Cannot believe why I don't discover it sooner!


~~~


Overall thoughts?
After using it for 2 weeks, I personally think that my face has a slightly more even skin tone. Maybe just a tiny bit. What I love most for each category (based on its effectiveness and my skin's reaction) & IF I ONLY have to choose 1....

#1 Chica-Y-Chico Skin Texture Toner
#2 A'Pieu Air Fit Cushion Bboyan - Apricot (SPF50+ / PA+++)

Signing out with much love,
Bee

(Review) CNP x Hermo

Anyone tried CNP products before?
My sis have been telling me the many good reviews of CNP Laboratory.
Was about to check them out & coincidentally Hermo Malaysia contacted me for the collaboration and I was beyond cloud nine!

Thank you Hermo Malaysia for sending these babies over on  2nd June 2017! <3
#hermomy 


~~~


WHY CNP Laboratory Products?
> Skin Friendly Ingredients (Safe & suitable for all skin types)
> Thorough Testing (7 steps of verification & testing for high quality products)
> Safe 5 Nos System (No additive of color, paraben, artificial fragrance, mineral oil, benzophenone to minimize skin irritation)

If you follow my IG stories, you would have seen me unboxing it on 2nd June 2017 ^^
Exactly 14 days after usage and below is my verdict!

(1)
CNP Laboratory Propolis Energy Ampule

It contains high concentration of propolis that helps to reinforce vitality of your skin. Propolis is popular for its skin protection & healing efficacy. It is a skin friendly product containing pure essential oils & it is free of preservatives that may potentially irritate the skin.

Ingredients:
CNP Anti-Irritant Complex - calms the skin by relieving skin stress
Propolis extract - Anti-oxidant, beautifying skin complexion
Sophora Extract - Effectively relieve stress from your skin due to external harmful elements 
Imperate Extract - Replenishes your skin with moisture to keep it hydrated
Beta-Glucan & Madecassoside - Good in soothing

Brand: CNP Laboratoy
Item: Propolis Energy Ampule
Content: 15ml
Origin: Korea
Skin Type: All
Rating: 5/5
Re-purchase: Big fat Y E S

Function (as claimed on Hermo / box):
Healing
Hydrating
Revitalizing

Instructions:
Normal usage (on its own) - After cleanse & tone, apply a moderate amount to whole face and massage gently.
Use with Moisturizer - Mix a few drops to moisturizer/cream to boost its effects on skin and even make the moisturizer more spreadable. A trick to ensure we wake up with a radiant skin the next day after sleeping in an air conditioner room.
Mix with BB/CC Cream - BB/CC cream doesn't become cake-y/dry throughout the day.
Face brightener - Dispense a drop of ampule to finger tips and gently dab on apples and brow bones of the face, for that subtle shimmer than highlighter.
Lip Serum - Good in nourishing lips    

Thoughts:
(Intensive Facial Nutrition Solution)
Started using on 02/06/2017 Night till today (16/06/2017).
I used it on its own, on a day and night basis.
Sometimes only at night when I don't cleanse my face in the day.

(From top to bottom)
1. Bare lips (if you can see it is slightly peeling at the center of lower lips and overall, chapped.
2. A drop of ampule on finger applied to lips.
3. Tap and spread.
4. When ampule is absorbed. Look at MY lips. Don't look like mine but am LOVIN' it ! <3

07/09/2017 tried using it as a lip serum. I was blooown away! My lips instantly became supple from a dry chapped lips. I dare not lick my lips so don't ask me what it tastes like. XD
The next morning after I brush my teeth, the lips are still plump and I LOVE it!

For normal usage, I find my face requires as little as 2 drops for a plump and glowing face. Some people with smaller faces only needs 1 drop. So I think a bottle can last quite a few months. Will update you again when I have finished mine! ^^ I have tried applying it more than two drops before, it just takes a longer time for it to be absorbed. When it is still wet, it may be somewhat sticky.

It helps my make up spread with ease and lasts longer as moisture of my face is boosted.

There are now promotion, if you like, HERE

Brand: CNP Laboratory
Item: Anti-Pore Blackhead Clear Kit
Content:
Mask 1: 2.5ml x 3 
Mask 2: 3.0ml x 3
Origin: Korea
Rating: 4/5
Re-purchase: Maybe

Function (as claimed on Hermo / box):
No.1 in Korea
No Pain, No Redness
FREE from Artificial Colors and Fragrance
Controls blackhead, sebum and pore tightening

Instructions:
1. After cleansing, put on Mask 1 for 10 minutes.
2. Remove Mask 1. Use cotton swab to remove black heads and sebum. Roll cotton swab from outer to inner corners, and from bottom to top of your nose.
3.Put on Mask 2 for 10 minutes.
4. Remove Mask 2. Dab your face lightly to allow absorption of the remaining soothing gel.

Caution:
Avoid using around the eyes.
Caution for those who are extremely sensitive to bandages or wet compress.
Stop using the product if you experience the following persisting symptoms eg. rashes, swells, itchiness.
Do not use on areas with scars, eczema and dermatitis.

Thoughts:

1, Application of Mask 1 for 10 mins.
2 & 3. I only use one cotton swab. Each ends are different I don't know why. Though pic isn't that clear, IRL I can see my whiteheads stick to the cotton swab. So gentle omg. No squeezing / pressing. Just rolling motion. About the blackhead maybe I should use a white cotton swab of my own instead.
4. Application of Mask 2 for 10 mins to tighten my pores. ^^ 
Mask 1:
Mask 1 scent is of strong artificial lemon-ish detergent & peppermint. It is cooling upon application and increases as time passes. My eyes can feel that chill sensation so I moved it slightly down (away from eyes). Luckily the scent does not linger on for too long! ^^

10 minutes later, time to see effectiveness...
I used the provided black cotton swab. Using rolling motion, I rolled from inner to outer and bottom to top of my nose. I was super surprised as I did not apply any pressure at all and some whiteheads / sebum (and maybe blackheads too but I cannot see) stick to my black cotton swab. Clearly, it did an effective and gentle job. Now, my nose is actually quite smooth already. 

Mask 2:
Mask 2 scent is of mild artificial melted plastic. It is more of a slimy essence which dries pretty quick after removal of mask. I think it did help tighten my pores. Luckily the scent does not linger on for too long! ^^


They are now TWIN Pack Promotion if you would like to try for yourself!

Shake well. Hold can 15 cm/6 inches from underarm and spray.

Caution:
Extremely flammable aerosol. Protect from sunlight. Do not expose to temperatures exceeding 50 C. Keep out of reach of children. Keep away from eyes. Do not apply to irritated or broken skin. Not for intimate hygiene use.

Thoughts:
Loving the freshness.
However, it lingers for too long and quite strong for me! As if I am wearing perfume for as long as I don't shower. Sounds good to you?
I think people who constantly use deodrant spray would love it but I am so used to using deodrant salt stick that does not have any scent at all, that's why the low rating.
My personal preference problem.
For those who use spray kind, I'd say you can give it a try! ^^

The tube packaging is very convenient and just sharp.
I can easily find it when I need to use it.
 

The plus point is that it locks and unlocks using the cap itself so there won't be leakage!

5 stainless steel roller-ball massage applicator maximizes the slimming effect on application.
Mom says it feels very nice and cooling during the massaging process.

This is how it looks like! ^^

Twist applicator to activate & squeeze sufficient amount of massage cream on desired area. Massage by rolling over desired area (arms, tummy, thighs) in circular & upward movements until cream is fully absorbed. Repeat for 5 minutes on each area every morning & evening.

Caution:

Thoughts:
My mom only uses on her tummy area.
During the massage the roller balls give a cooling feeling but the area also feels warm. The warm feelings does go away after a while so no worries! ^^
Mom also loves the scent of the product.
After 7 days of usage, she thinks that her tummy is slightly firmer and definitely smooth. She is originally fair so I observe no obvious whitening. Maybe it'll be more obvious for areas like the limbs.
I checked with her yesterday (14th June 2017, ie, day 13th of usage) and she says her tummy does somehow feels slimmer, firmer & moisturized although she did not measure it.
