(Event) (First Impression) Mamonde Bubble Floral Party with Mamonde Flower Facial Mask Flower Treatment

Hey lovelies, I never knew Monday can be so happy and relaxing!
Its rare for Mondays to be so well-loved!
Thanks Mamonde for making it happen ^^

Bye Monday Blues
Welcome pink, bubbly Monday!

Mamonde, the floral inspired skincare and beauty expert continues to uncover the hidden power and energizing nutrients of flowers via its latest Flower Facial Mask Line.

They are the Rose, Heartleaf Houttuynia, Calendula, and Evening Primrose.









Each of them helps bring back the women's flourishing beauty via its bouquet of floral goodness according to various skin concerns :)

It is also in-trend these days to incorporate daily facial masking and facial mask layering, which I have yet to pick up.
XD


~~~


It'd be my first time having an in-trend facial mask done at home and here's a few tips I have picked up that day:

1. Eliminate diruptions (off phone)
2. Gather spa supplies
3. Set the mood (music, aromatherapy, candles etc)
4. Cleanse the face
5. Choose your favorite mask (in this case, its the Mamonde Flower Facial Masks)
6. Moisturize (for wash-off masks ONLY!)

Set the mood with desserts, fruits, flowers...

My guilty indulgence ^^

That's how you're supposed to rock your in-home spa with sweet treats, your choice of beverage and...

candles form Mamonde! They were sooo good! Gotta see where I can get them ^^
The above are some flowers and tea from The Tea Republic, that we can mix freely and brew on our own.

I mixed White Tea (fruity scent!) and rose buds.
I learnt that White Tea and Green Tea can't be brew longer than 2 minutes or it'll turn bitter!!!

Ta-daa....rejuvenating internally is important too!


Mask-ing 3-ways with Mamonde Flower Facial Mask:

Here is how you can use the mask on a daily basis:

Stressed skin (Mon/Tues)
Mamonde Pore Clean Clay Mask
Fatigue skin (Wed)
Mamonde Calming Hydro Sleeping Mask
Prep for important dates/events (Thurs/Fri)
Mamonde Petal Purifying Bubble Mask

Or, try facial mask layering:

Luminous & Radiance Skin
Mamonde Petal Purifying Bubble Mask + Mamonde Calming Hydro Sleeping Mask
Deeply Hydrated & Nourishing Skin
Mamonde Pore Clean Clay Mask + Mamonde Enriched Nutri Sleeping Mask
Or apply them concurrently to achieve the following:

Purifying (for healthy looking skin) - Petal Purifying Bubble Mask + Calming Hydro Sleeping Mask
Nourishing (for dewy, resilient skin) - Pore Clean Clay Mask + Enriched Nutri Sleeping Mask
Beauty (for perfect makeup look) - Pore Clean Clay Mask + Petal Purifying Bubble Mask

MY Experience x Thoughts:

Cleanse > Toner > Petal Purifying Bubble Mask > Booster/Serum > Eye Cream > Moisturizer > Sleeping Mask



Sorry for the bad angle. Anyways, this how it looks like when it first bubbles.

Also another bad angle photo but its right after rinsing away my lather and before I apply my other skincare and make up.
A unique second bubble mask experience.
The first one was here from B-liv Oxygenating Mask.

[Packaging] As usual, Mamonde's packaging are aesthetically pretty and reflects the star flower used. It is wonderful that each tub has their own spatula.
[Texture] It feels like a souffle texture with rose petals in it.
[Scent]  It has a light sweet, rose scent.
[Application] You gotta apply this mask on your cleansed and dry face using your dry hands. Mamonde's Petal Purifying Bubble Mask is really different from that of B-liv as it bubbles much faster (1 minute wait is enough! I didn't even finish applying and it has already started bubbling XD). Add on some water like an emulsifying step and it gets more interesting! When lathering, the foam becomes white and thicker in texture. It is slightly harder to wash off so washing off takes a tad longer but its all good ^^
[Removal Step & Effectiveness] The only downside is that it takes a slightly longer time in removing the thick white foam but I can see and feel that my face is noticeably brightened, smooth, with no presence of tight feeling.
I am surprised!
[Recommend] Yes, please get it and experience yourself! I love how unique the lathering and wash off experience is.

Tips:
Thickness of mask application should cover color of the skin.
Once applied, ensure to close both inner and outer cap after each use!
Even after bubbling, it is still safe to use and its effectiveness isn't reduced!
Keep in dry place (avoid placing in your humid toilet!).
You can store it in the fridge but once you store it there you gotta keep it there until you have finished it.

Rate:
5/5
Coz I simply love rose and its noticeable brightening and moisturizing property upon first use! 

Re-purchase:
YES


Pore Clean Clay Mask
100ml  /  RM85


Heartleaf Houttuynia aka Chameleon Plant is first discovered in Hiroshima, Japan, in 1945. It has healing and anti-bacterial properties, especially suited for enlarged pores and oily-prone skin.

Main Ingredients:
Natural Clay, Heartleaf Houttuynia, and Walnut Shells

Function:
Absorb excess sebum & exfoliate dead skin cells on skin surface.
Gentle, mild and soft cream texture keeps skin moisturized while maintaining oil balance; thus skin feels soft, smooth, and supple after rinsing.

For:
Oily skin (Enlarged pores)
Sensitive skin
Skin with dead skin cells

MY Experience x Thoughts:

Cleanse > Toner > Pore Clean Clay Mask > Booster/Serum > Eye Cream > Moisturizer > Sleeping Mask

1 & 2 is my BEFORE.
3 & 4 is to show you the texture of the clay with fine walnut  shells.
5 is during the application and some selfie session.
6 is after rinsing my face, it just feels so good.

I seldom do clay masks coz usually they dry out during my application period and that makes my skin feel tight and slightly drying.

[Packaging] As usual, Mamonde's packaging are aesthetically pretty and reflects the star flower used. It is wonderful that each tub has their own spatula.
[Texture] It comes in a creamy green clay with really fine walnut shells.
[Scent] It has a nice mild combination of perfume-y + minty + refreshing scent.
[Application] Application was easy. Just give a wait between 10-15 minutes. Throughout the waiting period, it does dry up slightly but my face does not feel tight. It was a really chilly wait ^^
[Removal Step & Effectiveness] Removal was easy with massages and gentle exfoliation. I was surprised that the fine walnut shells feels so fine and does not scratch when I rubbed it. After rinsing, my face feels so smooth!!!
[Recommend] Definitely for those who would love gentle exfoliation.

Tips:
Thickness of mask application should cover color of the skin.
Once applied, ensure to close both inner and outer cap after each use!
Even after bubbling, it is still safe to use and its effectiveness isn't reduced!
Keep in dry place (avoid placing in your humid toilet!).


You can store it in the fridge but once you store it there you gotta keep it there until you have finished it.

Rate:
5/5
I cannot find a fault in it!

Re-purchase:
Yes


Calming Hydro Sleeping Mask
100ml  /  RM85


Calendula aka 'Pot Marigold' has been used in cooking for centuries but also containing multiple benefits to the skin. It is constantly used in manufacturing soaps, creams, and cosmetic products. Mamonde discovered that it has soothing & hydrate effect, leaving skin feeling dewy and hydrated.

Main Ingredients:
Calendula petals, Centella, Aloe Vera Extracts, & Cucumber Extracts

Function:
To calm skin and lock in moisture for a hydrated look.

For:
Sensitive skin
Dry skin

MY Experience x Thoughts:

Cleanse > Toner > Mask > Booster/Serum > Eye Cream > Moisturizer > Sleeping Mask

I love sleeping masks especially on drier days and when I don't wanna wash my face the next day XD

[Packaging] As usual, Mamonde's packaging are aesthetically pretty and reflects the star flower used. It is wonderful that each tub has their own spatula.
[Texture] It comes in this water-gel texture and calendula petals.
[Scent] It has a light mint and floral scent.
[Application] The water-gel texture makes application a breeze. Product was also absorbed fast with no tacky feeling.
[Effectiveness] A little goes a long way. If you wanna go light just take a little amount. But I like to layer 2-3 times for certain nights. It dries down to a dewy finish. I love how my skin feels refreshed and cooling upon application.Waking up to moisturized skin the next morning ^^
[Recommend] To those who likes sleeping mask that absorbs fast into the skin and don't mind about the price.

Rate:
4.5/5
Loves the mild scent and fast absorption

Re-purchase:
Probably but would love to discover other sleeping mask which are in the more affordable price range XD


Enriched Nutri Sleeping Mask
100ml  /  RM85


Evening Primrose is especially unique when compared to other flowering plants as it only blooms in the late evenings (now I know!). Evening Primrose has a lifespan of 2 years and adapts well in harsh environment. Evening Primrose is rich in Gamma Lenolenic Acid (a type of fatty acid that nourishes the skin).

Main Ingredients:
Flower Oil Complex (a combination of 3 types of flower oils ie. Evening Primrose Oil, Camellia Oil & Sunflower Oil)

Function:
Moisturizing properties leaving skin dewy.

For:
Bloated skin
Dehydrated skin

MY Experience x Thoughts:

Cleanse > Toner > Mask > Booster/Serum > Eye Cream > Moisturizer > Sleeping Mask

This sleeping mask is much richer in texture. It gives a dewy finish as well but requires a longer time for the product to be fully absorbed into the skin. Definitely saves my flaky skin!!

[Packaging] As usual, Mamonde's packaging are aesthetically pretty and reflects the star flower used. It is wonderful that each tub has their own spatula.
[Texture] It comes in a white gel texture with nutrient capsules (in white). The nutrient capsules help to fortify the protective layer of skin thus lowering the chances of external pollutants from harming the skin.
[Scent] It has a stronger fruity perfume-y scent.
[Application] I took a moderate amount and apply all over my face.
[Effectiveness] I can see and feel the capsules dissolve along the way. I feel that a lesser amount would be sufficient too and that it should have been absorbed into the skin way faster. It does that quite some time for products to be fully absorbed and once it is, there is very minimal tackiness. Face does feel plump and hydrated. Upon awakening the next morning, my flaky nose tip is no longer flaky!
[Recommend] To those with super dry, flaky skin! Its a life savior (for me at least)!

Rate:
4.5/5

Re-purchase:
Yes, especially on my flaky days.

Hello lovelies, how was your Christmas / holiday going?

A festive season is also known as a season of gifting.
Buying and receiving gifts is what comes to most minds.
What makes this season more meaningful is to do something that symbolizes love, kindness and gifting, especially to the less fortunate.

This year its 'Give a Gift' charity event that brings joy into the hearts of 70 children from the Rumah Charis and Rumah Victory charity homes by presenting them with gifts of their choice, requested in advance on the Wish Cards provided by DC Mall.

Patrons of the mall randomly picked out 70 Wish Cards off the Christmas Tree (located at Main Concourse Level 1) from 6th-8th December 2017. Patrons purchased the specified gift for the child and deposit them at the mall's concierge (located at G floor) at any time between 11am till 8pm from Tuesday to Saturday.

Here I am sharing with you what went down at the Damansara City Mall Christmas Charity Event last week.

(Review) Make Your Concept Black Set from A:Concept

Hello lovelies!


Merry Christmas!!!!
I am just stuck at home now rushing blogs XD

Bet everyone have settled with their gift finding and wrapping!
Anyhow, this would make a wonderful gift for birthdays or just a random surprise!

As a makeup junkie, I would be more than happy to receive gift sets like this!


After playing around with A:Concept Make Your Concept (Black Set), I would say its awesome for newbies to the k-beauty world as well as for those who are on-the-go individuals since they are compact and handy.

This is how handy and that is why I love it!

The exterior looks like this!

Content:
1x All In One Brightening A:Cushion
1x All In One Brightening A:Cushion Refill
1x A:Coral Lip & Cheek
1x A:Red Orange Lipstick

It opens up like this.
The packaging itself looks so festive and fun!


Looks like another awesome gift for your girls / makeup lovers!


Let's jump right in!


~~~


Review:

All In One Brightening A:Cushion


Super light dab coz I focus in snapping pics, paiseh!

Function:
Whitening
Anti-wrinkle
SPF35 pa++ uv protection

Packaging:
Black classy container which are quite durable.
It opens up uniquely coz if you have inserted your lip or cheek product beforehand, both the casing and the lip product opens up together.

Choices:
#21 (Light Beige)
#23 (Natural Beige)

I got shade #23 coz I feel dark at times or shade #21 for that tone up effect.


Thoughts:
I got #23 (Natural Beige) and it blends well into my skin. I used it after my primer and it blends easily into my skin. It does cover redness but not my dark circles. It lightens my dark circles slightly. Coverage is slightly buildable till a near medium coverage for evening out my skin. I do not use loose powder after that coz using it alone makes my skin have a slightly dewy finish. After some time it does cake especially around my eye area and where my glasses sit, however, a little rubbing still makes me look overall flawless :)

Touching up with loose powder is not necessary for my skin coz sometimes only my T zone will be oily. I do not touch up with cushion coz it actually lasts quite some time.

With a price like this and a free refill, defintiely a steal!!!
:D


A:Coral Lip & Cheek
(You can get it HERE).




Function:
A 2-in-1 lip and cheek product.

Packaging:
Simple and chic. 

Choice:
Pink
Red
Coral

I only had my primer, All In One Brightening A:Cushion and now dabbing some A: Coral Lip & Cheek on my cheeks.
(Clearly concealer is needed badly for my dark eye circles!)

I can easily blend out and achieve that natural flushed cheeks. Lastly, I finished off my eyebrows and eye liner.
Thoughts:
It is said to be a color suitable and loved by Asian skin.
I love how its a multi-purpose product for both the lips and cheeks.
I love how the color is buildable on the cheeks.
It blends easily on my cheeks yet looking naturally flushed, love it!
HOWEVER, the formula is too drying on my lips. Upon application on my semi-dry lips, the product just doesn't sit on my lip and enhance my lip lines. Its just drying and I cannot pull off this color. Probably coz I don't wear make up that often that's why I personally think I look sick-ish I don't know why.
I find myself picking it as my blusher this whole month.


A:Red Orange Lipstick
(You can get it HERE and HERE).




Function:
Matte lipstick.

Packaging:
Simple and chic.

Choice:
A:Red
A:Red Orange
A:Pink
A:Orange
A:Rose Brown (New)
A:Pink Brown (New)
A:Brick Brown (New)

Cheeks and lips look good!

I was surprised how smooth my lips look tho the base was already dry. XD

Thoughts:
Its shape is round so it may be slightly hard to reach at the corner of the lips.
Feels dry on no balm lips but really vivid color and application is surprisingly smooth on lips.
Likes how this bold lips brighten my soft natural look.
Much more moisturising compared to the A:Coral Lip & Cheek


~~~


Overall thoughts:

My whole face with  A:Concept Make Your Concept Black Set
Brought along my Brightening cushion for backup (surprisingly no need to touch up!)
Hair from Hair Color Expert Malaysia.
Jacket from HK
Shoes from Nike
(Image credits to second sis, Karen. Her shot surprised me!! Thanks for making me so tall and chio!)

YES. It is still available at Althea Korea. It costs only RM106 for 4 items!
It's super affordable and of quality tho I may not use the Coral one for both my lip and cheeks. I like how each of them perform great on my skin, cheeks and lip. Will try again with concealer and such and update in my IG @beeleec
:)


Cheers,
Bee
