(Wishlist) My Althea Christmas Wishlist

Hello loves! Merry Christmas in advance!


Below is a list I have compiled, Bee Lee's Top Ten from Althea Korea:


#1: MAKEUP REMOVER aka first cleanser from Althea - Pore Purifying Serum Cleanser

For a 150ml it cost RM33 and a little goes a long way in melting off makeup, dirt and debris after a long day. I find it especially great for dry skin type like me. It doesn't feel oily upon application and emulsifying step is not needed which is convenient for me! Once I tap dry my face it doesn't give my face the tight feeling and sometimes I use it alone without a second cleanser and my face is reacting positively to it! A full review for this will be up soon! ^^
#2: TONER from Althea - Primer Water

For 200ml it only cost RM43. No problem with layering and I love how my skin feels all plump and smooth! It also gets absorb to the skin super fast. Full review HERE. Also, it is suitable for day & night use!

#3: Exfoliator from Neogen - Bio-Peel Gauze Peeling Wine

30 pieces cost RM74. I have seen many rave about it so I really wanna try it! Its a daily exfoliator suitable for sensitive skin and claims to improve skin texture revealing smooth & bouncy skin. Who doesn't want that? :)

#4: Exfoliator from Althea - Real Fresh Skin Detoxer Green Tea

150ml for RM43 is a deal! A little goes a long way and I use this for 2 times a week on days where I feel lazy to do a full routine. I love that it gives me smooth & hydrated skin. Following up with a moisturizer is important! Full review HERE.

#5: Exfoliator from Onsaemeein - Yogurt Peeling

100ml cost RM30, now at RM26 only! I have never tried this but have read many positive reviews, especially from Zoelie, so I am very tempted to try this once all my exfoliators run out.
#6: Sunscreen & Powder from Althea - Petal Velvet Set

Its a value set for RM53.10 for the choice of your loose powder and Althea's sunscreen! I love love love this set as I love both these product. Its definitely my go-to for my no make up make up look! ;)

#7: Mask from Dr. JART+ - Dermask Shaking Rubber Hydro Shot

50g for RM24. Its a really cool looking mask and I have never tried any rubber mask. There are also so many good reviews. Have you tried it? ^^

#8: Hair Treatment from CP-1 - Premium Hair Treatment

25ml for RM19. For long hair like me, I can use it for two sessions. It may sound slightly expensive but I promise you your hair will be so smooth and love you back! It is definitely portable and has a cool packaging.

#9: Deodrant from Rire - Bosong Bosong Deodrant Tissue in Baby Powder scent

Its already out of stock since approximately 2 years I think. This is one product I cannot live without. It does combat BO just by wiping. Isn't that wonderful! ^^ Please bring this back Althea!!!

#10: A good night sleep from Medi Heally

5 pieces for RM28. I love using warming eye masks like this as it helps to treat my fatigue eyes and makes me fall asleep fast. Haven't tried from this brand before but it has really good reviews too!


~~~


That is all from me. I really hope Althea Korea can bring my #9 wishlist back so I will stock up! ^^

(Event) Meet Kiper, The Solution to a Proper Body Posture & Healthy Spine

Hello loves!
A more different post today focusing on health and beauty!

Is there anything you want to change about yourself but never dare to share about it or ask for help? I have always always had low self esteem about my hunchback issue. Needless to say coz its obvious but its hard to remind yourself when its an automatic habit. As I grow older, I am keen in wanting to improve my hunchback issue. It not only makes me shorter and physically less appealing when I take ootds but also give me backache when I sit for too long sometimes. It all started when I was in my primary school years where I love doing my homework on the floor. As if my heavy backpacks didn't encourage me to hunch more XD

According to studies, about 80% of adults experience lower back pain at some point in their lifetime and one of the primary causes of work-related back pain is improper sitting positions. *Yes, I am guilty!* With this causes in mind, Jon Lai founded Kiper and embark on a mission to combat backaches, stiff shoulders and to a degree, scoliosis.

About Kiper Sdn. Bhd.:
Kiper Sdn Bhd is a Malaysian brand that specializes in finding solutions to backache and spinal issues. The company has worked closely with industry experts to develop products that are effective, affordable and pain-free anytime anywhere. Kiper has officially launched two products - the Kiper Essentials Lower Back Brace and Kiper Essentials Shoulder Corrector. Both of the Kiper Essentials assist in strengthening the upper back, lower back, neck and shoulder.

"The first goal for Kiper Sdn. Bhd. is to relieve 100,000 individuals from backpain before the end of 2019, and the company is off to a good start. Even before being officially launched, the company managed to sell 3,000 units of the Kiper Essentials Lower Back Brace and Kiper Essentials Shoulder Corrector and within a span on seven days of its introduction," says Jon Lai (Founder and CEO of Kiper Sdn. Bhd.).

The Kiper Essentials Lower Back Brace is designed to make any chair ergonomic, encourage a healthier sitting position for a healthier spine, and to help relieve back pain after using it. The Kiper Essentials Shoulder Corrector is the first ever orthopaedist-designed shoulder corrector in Malaysia and helps to align a person's shoulder to its natural position & discourage hunching. You can use them together or individually, depending on your needs ^^

About Master Dato' Dr. Chris Leong:
Meet Master Dato' Dr. Chris Leong. He's one of the most prominent figures in Malaysia when it comes to bone-setting procedures and endorses on both products. He recommends that both products be used for at least 15 minutes a day for maximum effectiveness. Master Dato' Dr. Chris Leong is the founder of Chris Leong Method (CLM), a company dedicated to healing spinal discomfort using traditional bone-setting method aka "Tit-Tar". To date, he operates two CLM outlets in Klang Valley and has been prominently featured on social media in Malaysia and around the world.

"Good body posture is essential for the overall health and well being of an individual. However, many people are not aware that they have bad body posture or suffering from backaches, which most often is induced by poor sitting positions or hunching over laptops. Hence, we believe the Kiper Essentials Lower Back Brace and Kiper Essentials Shoulder Corrector will be able to reach out and help more people to retain their musculature so that their back will maintain an upright position without a lot of effort and can begin building those muscles in a way that helps strengthen the upper back, lower back, neck and shoulders," says Master Dato' Dr. Chris Leong.

During the launch, 30 lucky customers were given the chance to experience the two products first hand, whilst being given five quick tips by Master Dato' Dr. Chris Leong on how to maximize the effectiveness of the products. They are the 'Diver Pose', the 'Rearward Arm Stretch', the 'Arch Style', the 'Paddle Style', and the 'Waist Twist'.

This is an exciting collaboration! Thanks for introducing me and I hope you will check them out if you too have hunchback or back pain issue like me ^^

After that we had a bone-setting session with Master Dato' Dr. Chris Leong and other staffs which is scary but amazing after. My stiff shoulders has loosened and I ended up with a good night sleep after ^^ Thank you for the wonderful session and I would definitely recommend you to go for a session at least to be more aware of your own bones! 

I am also thankful to be able to bring back and experience both the Kiper Essentials Lower Back Brace and Kiper Essentials Shoulder Corrector. A lot of times I'd be sitting in front of my laptop all hunched up. I find wearing both the Kiper Essentials Lower Back Brace and Kiper Essentials Shoulder Corrector really helps me to sit in the correct posture with little effort. The only thing is I need to be more discipline in wearing it on a daily basis for 15 mins! ^^

Thanks for having us! ^^

(Review) Miss Hana Cushion Lip Pen

Hello loves.

I love discovering interesting product and this is my second cushion lip product. I decided to open this first coz I got this from Hermo's Clearance section a few months back for approximately RM15 and its gonna expire in October. :)
*this was drafted in Oct, thought I had it posted but I didn't*


~~~


Brand: Miss Hana
Variant: 01 Berry Garden.
Content: 5ml
Origin: Taiwan
Cost: RM47.90 (NP: RM69.90)
Re-purchase: Yes


Ingredients:
Water, Cyclopentasiloxane, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Cyclohexasiloxane, Butylene Glycol, Phenyl Trimethicone, Cetyl PEG/PPG-10/1 Dimethicone, Mica (CI 77019), Silica, Stearalkonium Hectorite, Magnesium Sulfate, Diisostearyl Malate, CI 77491, PEG-9 Polydimethylsiloxyethyl Dimethicone, Polyglyceryl-4 Isostearate, Sorbitan Isostearate, Hexyl Laurate, XI 45410, Propylene Carbonate, Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Caprylyl Glycol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Fragrance, Phenoxyethanol, Tocopheryl Acetate, 1, 2-Hexanediol, Disodium EDTA, Tin Oxide.

Features:
Create gradient lips without using fingers
Moist & powdery look
Long-lasting tint


Application:
Gently press the button at the end to squeeze the content, and tap on lip and cheek.



Tips:
Can also be used as a blusher. A tinnyyyy bit will do.

Here's a swatch from how it looks right after application to when you wipe it away to running under the tap water. What do you think? I quite like it. Read more below! ^^

Thoughts:
I like the packaging. It is easy to hold and the dispensing method, click-by-click, allows a good dispersion of product. It smells of mild fruity-berry scent. It dispenses in an intimidating bright pink color but once it spreads, I actually love it. Lips look dewy but it only lasted for a few hours. Upon application the pink has super minimal holo-effect...not sure if its just my eyes XD But after awhile it is no longer there :)  First few hours of application are dewy and comfortable. It doesn't last a meal and re-application is easy. It'd make a GREAT BASE as its staining power caught me off guard <3

The only con is the kind of puff application that makes it less hygienic. Overall I love it! ^^

That's all from me today.
Thanks for dropping by & hope this post is helpful.

Bee

(Review) Althea Milk Peel Cream Mask

Hello loves, meet the latest addition to the Althea family, the Milk Peel Cream Mask.


I did not know what to expect but after going through the ingredients list, I bet my dry, dull and slightly sensitive skin will love! Let's test it out together!!! ^^

Brand: Althea
Item: Milk Peel Cream Mask
Content: 50ml
Origin: Korea
Cost: RM36 (NOW at 10% OFF)

Ingredients:
Water (Aqua), Kaolin, Glycerin, Disiloxane, Bentonite, Propanediol, Myristic Acid, Methyl Perfluoroisobutyl Ether, Stearic Acid, Methyl Perfluorobutyl Ether, Potassium Hydroxide, 1,2-Hexanediol, Palmitic Acid, Ethylhexylglycerin, Milk Protein Extract, Disodium EDTA, Gaultheria Procumbens (Wintergreen) Leaf Extract, Gluconolactone, Glycolic Acid, Titaniumdioxide (Ci 77891), Fragrance (Parfum), Coumarin*, Hexyl Cinnamal*, Citronellol*

Claims & Key Ingredients:
Milk Protein Extract - Moisturizes and strengthens the skin.
AHA & BHA - Gently exfoliates away dead skin cells for a smooth & radiant complexion.
Kaolin - Detoxifies and pulls out impurities from the pores.

Suitable for:
Combination skin types. Enlarged pores. Rough, sensitive skin that needs gentle exfoliation. Dry skin that needs to stay moisturized even after peeling.

How-to:
Dampen the skin and apply an even layer onto the skin, massaging till a rich lather forms. Leave on for 30-60 seconds before rinsing away with warm water.

Before we go into my thoughts, here is my BEFORE from all perspective.
I only had my brows and eyeliner on so I look more awake and fresh for the camera XD
I have more textures and roughness at my forehead. Acne prone to visit at my T-zone. Enlarged pores at my nose, chin and cheek (near nose) area. Overall skin is dull and dry. I also have fine lines on my forehead and eye area.

Thoughts:
Below is my full thoughts based on my super dry with combination and slight sensitive skin type.

Packaging - Super cute baby blue packaging with a hygienic pump dispenser.
Scent & Texture - I am loving the baby powder scent that is not overwhelming. It dispenses in a creamy clay form and then it bubbles up quickly.

Effectiveness - I like it when the clay fizzes and turn into bubbles. I massage over it and it re-bubbles a few times and I wash it away. Cleansing was easy & fun. My skin is instantly smooth like a baby's butt, pores are slightly smaller and my t-zones where there are slight dry patches are no longer visible. I am surprise that the clay texture does not dry up my skin, instead it moisturizes and makes my skin supple! Not forgetting the 'tight' feeling, as if its firming my skin! ^^ So far I did it for twice a week.

Re-purchase - YES! For a 50ml, it only cost RM36 and I think it will last me a while! Definitely recommending to dry skin users too and overall all skin types! The claims are verified by me and many users who have tried it. Most importantly is that my skin loves it and shows no bad reactions! ^^ It's an affordable, easy, fuss-free, fun and effective mask!
