(Review) Eucerin UltraWHITE SPOTLESS Challenge

Hello loves.

How has your July progress so far? It’s really exciting & nervous for me as my bump is now halfway in the third trimester. Do you know that some pregnant women have more pigmentations during their pregnancy and it'll be either gone for good or still remain on the face even after labour? I also noticed my skin getting darker even with constant use of sunscreen. FYI, I am not taking any collagen or supplement that helps in brightening or whitening so I am looking forward when trying this new Eucerin product that claims to diminish dark spots and achieve fairer skin in 4 weeks time WITHOUT laser treatment! Also suitable for sensitive & pregnant skin!! ❤️


~~~



Eucerin is launching their brand new baby which would help me with my current skin concerns- say hi to Eucerin UltraWHITE SPOTLESS Double Booster Serum!

This new breakthrough product EucerinⓇ UltraWHITE+ SPOTLESS with Thiamidol diminishes dark spots, in just 4 weeks to give you fairer skin. Best of all, it is completely gentle on your skin!!!! 

In the past, the only treatment to diminish dark spots is laser treatment. Now, with UltraWHITE SPOTLESS, you can opt for a gentle and safe skincare product to diminish dark spots, uneven skin tone & pigmentations!!!!


~~~


About Eucerin:
Eucerin has more than 100 years of expertise in the science of skin care. Since it’s launch, the brand has been leading innovation in the science of skin care. It is now one of the world’s most trusted derma-cosmetic brands, endorsed and recommended by dermatologists and pharmacists to help keep skin healthy & beautiful. The brand is committed to research, development and testing to deliver innovative and effective products for the face and body. 

Current skin condition:
I have uneven skin tone (darker at T-zone), some freckles on my cheeks and nose, some new acne which will leave marks soon as well as overall dull dry skin with minimal sensitivity.


About Eucerin UltraWHITE+ SPOTLESS Double Booster Serum:

Ain't the packaging so innovative and convenient? :)

Packaging:
An innovative dual-chamber system (protect active ingredients for maximum efficacy) in a plastic packaging with clear instructions on how to use the product.



Texture & scent:
Dispenses in both Gel & Cream formula and has this clinical perfume-ish Eucerin scent but dissipates after application.



Claims:
Gentle, safe & effective on skin.
Diminish dark spots in 4 weeks WITHOUT laser treatment.
Leaves skin fairer and brighter with patented active ingredient, Thiamidol.
10x more effective in reducing dark spots without the need for laser treatments.

How-to:
Press precisely in the middle of the pump to ensure release of both formulas equally.
Press slowly to allow the formula to fill the pump.
Apply to clean skin at night routine, tapping gently until serum is fully absorbed,

Ingredients:
Chamber 1 (Metallic Silver-Pink) : Thiamidol - a light emulsion cream that inhibits melanin at its source, prevent pigmentation.
Chanber 2 (Metallic Silver) : Pure concentrated Hyaluronic Acid is a clear transparent gel that easily absorbed, boost hydration & prevent fine lines. Dexpanthenol (Vitamin B5) promotes cell regeneration.

Thoughts:
I am definitely doubtful whether my dark spots can be diminished just by using creams. I have tried many but they only lighten a while or a few days max and not diminish dark spots fully from underneath my skin. I enjoy looking at the packaging and it is super light to bring around when traveling. I love how fast the cream-gel gets absorbed into my skin & the scent don’t really bother me much since it dissipates after application. I do notice the slightest stinging sensation the few times I applied on my skin but after that it’s all normal & soothing. I tried to apply on my eye area too and it does not leave me any oil seeds or such but the already-formed fine lines will need a long way to go.

The biggest change I noticed is the lightening of my acne scars and overall more glowy and even skin toned! Super happy with my face.


Definitely recommending you to experience this cream yourself if  you too are facing issues of dark spots / pigmentation, uneven skin tone and improving acne scars!!! 


Thanks for dropping by and I hope this post is helpful for you! ^^

(Review) Hada Labo Hydrating Oil-In Lotion

Hello loves!
How have your June been?
I hope you're more productive than me!
Today's review is a self-purchased item I purchased some time back during their Hada Labo Road Show coz my babe @beautiventures highly recommended it.

My no-buy moment didn't last very long and prior to that I forced myself to do some spring cleaning for my skincare/makeup stash. I had some help from baby sis and we sorted according to their expiring year. Had one tray lined up for those expiring this year 2019! XD This is one of it.


~~~


I tried googling its name and I got this > Hada Labo Gokyujun Squalien Oil-In Face Clear Lotion or simply Hada Labo Hydrating Oil-In Lotion. I am assuming it to be somewhat oily somewhere but the first impression is quite enjoyable as there is no oily sensation at all! Instead, it gets absorbed into the skin quickly leaving my skin feeling fresh! More thoughts below!

Brand: Hada Labo
Item: Hydrating Oil-In Lotion
Content: 220ml
Origin: Japan
Cost: RM78 at Lazada; discounted to RM49.80
Rating: 3/5
(Image not mine)

Claims:
Squalene maintains moisture in skin.
Helps satisfy oil-water balance of skin.
Experience moisturize skin without sticky sensation.
Comfortable for user and gives user clear complexion.

This is my packaging after the pump has carelessly broken off.
Still usable and I pump right from the top with my cotton pad on hand, however I can no longer just pump onto my hands and layer as many layers as I like XD 


Thoughts:
[Packaging] The pump design and choker is hygienic & convenient to use and if you happen to travel, you do not need to worry of spillage or anything. Unfortunately I have dropped a few times  and the pump broke off. Still usable but slightly troublesome. XD
[Scent & Texture] Watery texture with no oily sensation at all! It absorbs fast into the skin leaving the skin looking slightly dewy, no tacky sensation and no scent at all!
[Skin Feels] After swiping with cotton pad, I find myself layering it as it provides more moisture to my face. I believe this 220ml will last me quite a while so it is definitely value for its price if it works for you. After a 2 weeks plus usage I do find that my skin is slightly more moisturized especially with the layering technique, also I do not breakout throughout the period of usage! Simply wiping with just cotton pad actually decrease both my moisture and oil level of my skin. Since it kinda dries me out during my lazy routine (just cotton pad alone), I think it will suit oily-combination skin user more!

This is how it looks like when dispense on a cotton pad.


This is a reading taken before-after a swipe of  toner on my hands. As you can see, both my water & oil level has decrease. I am not happy with the decrease of moisture but the decrease in oil level shows a good sign!! I believe layering technique would show a better reading.


Re-purchase:
No. There are other range in Hada Labo that works much better for my dry-combination skin.

That's all from me. Thanks for dropping by and I hope this post is helpful for you!

(Event) The NEW Johnson’s

Hello loves!

On 10th May 2019, we were gathered at Grand Salon, Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur to witness the relaunch of Johnson’s®- a range of baby care products with Ultra Gentle formulas that contain 0% Parabens, Phthalates, Sulfates and dyes, and designed to be irritation free for baby and toddlers’ delicate and developing skin.


Congrats Johnson's® on the relaunch of the product with better and gentler ingredients for babies and toddlers!

Image from Betty and further brightened using Snapseed app by me XD

I like the new packaging. Looking so sleek and user-friendly.

I bet everyone have heard of or has once used on by your parents as a baby!
I personally was a user as a baby, thanks to mom!

“The NEW Johnson’s® is more than a reformulation exercise, it represents a reinvention of the total Johnson’s® baby care range from the user or parents’ perspective. It is also created with the brand’s 125 years’ experience and in-depth knowledge in baby skin and manufacturing science,” says Mr Prashant Mahalingam (Country Director, Consumer at Johnson & Johnson Malaysia).

New & Improved Johnson’s®:

1) Purposeful Ingredients & Complete Ingredient Transparency
Over 400 ingredients have been rejected during the reformulation. Mineral oil has been replaced with naturally-derived oil like coconut and cottonseed. The new range has 0% Parabens, Phthalates, Sulfates and Dyes - less than 2% of cosmetic ingredients globally meets these standards of gentleness.
2) Fragrances designed with mom & baby in mind
Smell, memory and emotion are intimately connected, with decades of research showing that multi-sensory experiences are a key part of happy, healthy baby development. All fragrances are now formulated to be FREE OF Allergens, and continue to follow the International Fragrance Association (IFRA) and the Research Institute for Fragrance Materials (RIFM) global standards,
3) Parent-friendly Packaging
Pump design enables one-handed use so parents can remain focus on their baby.
4) Products specially designed for every age & stage in a baby’s life
Johnson’s product don’t simply cleanse and moisturize, instead each are formulated to address special skin needs of babies from Newborn to 6 year old kids.

Why babies/toddlers MUST use gentle products?

“Infants’s skin is under-developed and is therefore delicate and requires gentle cleansing and care. A newborn’s epidermis is 30% thinner than adults. Baby’s thinner skin means it cannot absorb and retain moisture in the skin and is prone to moisture evaporation and dry skin. Strong cleansers will only disrupt baby’s vulnerable skin barrier causing further dehydration, thus, opting for gentle cleansers is a must for a healthy, hydrated skin barrier for baby and toddlers!” explains Datuk Dr Zulkifli Ismail.

Here's the consumer test result.
Isn't it awesome! ^^

Why CHOOSE Gentle?
Amyra Rosli (Mother in 2017, an advocate of gentle baby care products for her 1 year 7 months olds son Aqeef Anaqi bin Amar) opted for the gentle Johnson’s® Milk + Rice Bath Lotion to assure that her active crawling baby is well moisturized and protected to enjoy his exploration and develop happily. Gan Mei Yan (Comedian, Actress, and famous Radio Announcer, an advocate to her 4-year old son, Seng Jo, and has just delivered a daughter, Seng Sum, 6months old now), mother of two recommends Johnson’s® CottonTouch Wash and Lotion for newborns and infants below 12 months. This ultra-light, easy-to-rinse wash and lightweight lotion with no sticky residue allow Mei Yan to get a good grip of her daughter during bath and change. It gives her more confidence when handling her baby and the smell makes her daughter more lovable to hug and hold.

Here's a capture during the Q&A Session from mothers/celebrities to Doctors.

Pros:
>90% ingredients of natural origin
50% fewer ingredients
Preserves mildly acidic pH of babies’ skin, helping maintain barrier function
No added Parabens, Phthalates, Sulfates & Dyes
No added Fragrance Allergens

The NEW Johnson’s® Range:

Johnson’s® CottonTouch Top-to-Toe Bath and Face & Body Lotion for Newborns
Newborn’s skin is thinner this require the gentlest cleanser and moisturizer to protect skin barrier.
TOUCH is the foundation to newborn’s sensory development.
Unlocking parents’ gentlest touch with the latest newborn care innovation CottonTouch.

This is the CottonTouch series for Newborns.

Johnson’s® Milk + Rice and Milk + Oats Wash & Lotion for Toddlers
Toddlers are crawlers and walkers thus keeping the skin barrier intact is important to keep these little explorers healthy and happy.

This is the Milk + Rice series for Toddlers.

This is the Milk + Oats series for Toddlers.

Johnson’s® Active Kids Shampoo for Toddlers and Kids (3 years and above)
Less delicate skin but still developing this adult shampoo is less suitable for them. A gentle shampoo will help cleanse the scalp and mange their hair, especially in Malaysia’s hot and humid weather.

This is the Active Kids series for Toddlers and Kids that comes in 3 variants:
Shiny Drops - contains Argan Oil and Silk Protein for soft, shiny hair
Clean & Fresh - formulated with Active Fresh technology for long lasting freshness

The 12 NOs (minimize burden to skin.; typical skin care product don't add about 6-7 harmful ingredients while Fleuri successfully not include 12 harmful ingredients) makes it gentle to both our skin and environment!
Its great to find out that the developers of Fleuri aims not just "rapid skin recovery" but to "eliminate the problem"

Brand: Fleuri
Item: Clear Gel Cleanse
Content: 200g
Origin: Japan
Re-purchase: Yes

Packaging:
Simple, clean, see-through plastic packaging to easily know when to restock.  

Scent & Texture:
Its a clear gel texture with no scent. As gentle as the Fresh soybean cleanser.

How-to:
As a cleanser - Apply on a wet face with or without tool.
As a makeup remover - Apply directly on dry face with makeup, rub in circular motions. Add water and continue rubbing in circular motion. Rinse off.

The cleanser dispenses in a clear gel form just like its name.
A demo in removing liners, lip product and concealers. I was surprised how much it can remove just by rubbing the product all over and after rinsing its completely gone! ^^

Claims:
Give flawless skin even without makeup application! More obvious when you use it long term.

Thoughts:
I tried using it as a cleanser step. Its sooooo gentle without any scent. Each time after rinsing my skin is soooooo soft and there is no tight feeling *thumbs up* Now I have another favorite to add to my cleanser list <3 I use it every morning and night and it never breaks me out for the period of almost 2 weeks trial.

This before-after clearly shows the improvement in appearance. I see a more brightened, more even skin tone just by comparing the pics. I also have much lesser blackheads & whiteheads. Pores are slightly refined but will need a longer usage period to confirm how refined it can be ^^ Also, my face is much smoother to touch and makeup is able to stay on longer without caking! <3
*So sorry for the brows and lips at my after pic but I promise you I have a bare face here!*

As a makeup remover, I doubt it at first. Surprisingly, it removes even my waterproof liner and non-waterproof mascara so easily compared to cleansing water. However, it does sting the eye a bit if it goes into the eyes. After rinsing, it does not sting anymore. I am surprising with its cleansing and makeup removing power!

I really enjoyed using this Fleuri Clear Gel Cleanse for its effectiveness and multipurpose usage!
All the pros above justifies for its price and I will definitely splurge on this when I can ^^

Thanks for dropping by and I hope this post is helpful for you!

~
How-to:
After cleansing and toning, open the pouch and remove the film. Smooth the sheet mask on face and leave on for 10-20 minutes. After removing the mask, pat gently until essence is fully absorbed.

Avocado Nourishing Mask
~
Avocado is known as the butter of the forest with rich protein that prevents aging and provides strong antioxidant with Vitamin E Tocopherol. The excellent absorption of skin-friendly unsaturated fatty acid provides shininess and elasticity to the skin. It is mix with Hibiscus Flower Extract that contains Antocyanin, an antioxidant to prevent the skin from aging.

Lemon Lime Whitening Mask
~
Lemon and Lime contains high Vitamin C ingredient to help repair and protect the skin from UV damage. The Vitamin C functions to inhibit melanin production thus providing a clear and transparent skin. This mask contains Green Tea Extract which is also rich in Vitamin C to assist in controlling melanin production and skin care.
*Provide an instant whitening effect upon first usage!*

Peach AC Control Mask
~
Peaches are rich in moisture and Vitamin A Retinol components which helps control the oil and water balance of the skin. It helps normalize the skin turnover cycle with Retinol by preventing troubles and taking care of dead skin cells and provide smooth, hydrated skin. The mask contains Tea Tree Extracts to help sterilization and takes care of trouble spots and pores.

Watermelon Moist Mask
~
Watermelon fruit has 92% of water which is excellent for moisturizing and soothing for the skin during the hot weather. It contains natural aminoic acid called Citrulin and Betain that forms a natural moisturizing membrane on the skin, leaving it moisturized  as well as a smoother skin that does not dry out. The mask also contains Lavender Extract which helps soothe sensitive skin and provides liveliness.

I tried the watermelon mask first coz its mamasan's favorite!
It has this mild floral and sweet scent with plenty of essences in the packet. The mask texture itself is really thin and can fit bigger faces as well. Application is easy with no messy drip! I only hope that the cutout for mouth area can be improved by the slightest but the price tag and it being functional is the biggest win so no complains!!! Love the adherence of the mask which allows me to walk around and do some house chores while waiting. Skin feels cooling and soft after however the essences does take quite awhile before fully absorbing into the skin. If you do not want to wait, just wipe away with toner or rinse off and seal the goodness with your moisturizer! ^^ 

I am surprised that most parts are still moist upon removal of my 20 minutes masking session. I advise to go in with the remaining serum while the mask is still on coz they say that a moist mask upon removal is better for the skin. 

A'bloom BHA Blackhead Blaster
This BHA Blackhead Blaster is an easy and quick triple treatment for blackheads, whiteheads and dead skin for daily care.

Recommended for oily and combination skin type!

Brand: A'bloom
Item: BHA Blackhead Blaster
Content: 8g
Cost: RM16
Rating: 4.5/5
Re-purhcase: Maybe but this one stick will last me quite a while ^^

Ingredients:
Natural BHA - deep pore cleansing while exfoliating away dead skin cells.
Apricot Seed Powder - remove excessive sebum.
Charcoal - absorb the dirt in the pores.
Tea Tree Leaf Oil - soothing properties prevent redness and irritation on the skin.

Packaging:
Plastic sturdy packaging. Convenient to use but less hygienic in my opinion.

How-to:
Dampen the skin. Apply the stick directly on targeted areas and massage in circular motions for 30 seconds. After that, rinse of with water.

Thoughts:
I find the packaging really cute with terrified blackheads on it XD However the usage makes me feel like its a bit less hygienic but convenient to use especially when everyone do not have enough time these days. At my current pregnancy stage I try my best to stay away from BHA and salicylic-based products coz I read its not adviced so. Tried twice and I quite like it. Picture-wise, not much of a difference after first use. When I look at it up close, it does feel smooth and my whiteheads are lesser. Will definitely be using this more after I give birth. Application is easy and exfoliation feels super gentle with the apricot powder in it. The applied area does feel a bit dry but nothing a moisturizer couldn't fix ^^
I also read from other butterflies saying good things about this upon first usage too! Go read their thoughts too by finding hashtags in instagram #altheeaangels

Super smooth nose. Lesser whiteheads. I do not have much of a blackhead issue yet so will be trying more after giving birth! ^^ Heard loads of good stuff about this from other Althea Angels. Go read their thoughts! ^^

Thoughts:
For my face makeup application, I usually use my fingers or brush but never a blender/puff coz I feel lazy needing to clean it each time after use but these just looks super cute and soft to touch, especially when its soaked with water. This is my first time ever using a puff for my foundation application and I am glad its the A'bloom Giant Meringue Puff. I love a more dewy finish so I soaked it in water and the big base allows for a seamless and fast application of my foundation! I do not really like the fact that the puff 'eating' my foundation, but a wet puff 'eats' lesser foundation while giving me the desired airbrush effect! It also works well for baking my under eyes with loose powders as well as spreading my liquid blusher & cream contour!

This is me using a damp A'bloom Giant Meringue Puff to blend my foundation. I was shocked with the tone of foundation I chose but the blender makes it look so good so I went out looking tan but fabulous! XD

I love using the baby meringue at my under eyes for concealer and they don't crease as fast and gives me more precision. Also my first time using a puff to blend concealers and I love the precision! I use exclusively for blending my concealers as it does a veryyyy good job in my opinion!

I love using this A'bloom Baby Meringue Puff as it gives me great precision when it comes to blending out my nose contour as well as my concealer so seamlessly!!!!! Usually the concealer between my brows are flaky but not today as the damp baby meringue puff did the work!!! <3
