(Event) Dr. Jou Derma mask

Hello lovelies, I bet many of you have heard of Dr Jou.
If no, then you might have already heard of Dr. Morita masks. :)
Yes?

Dr.. Jou Jun Xu is the creator behind the best selling and highly raved Dr. Morita mask series.
Many will ask Dr Jou, "Why do you still want to create a line when Dr. Morita masks are already so successful and good?"

He answers, "Well, I have noticed 5 years back when my skin aged my body requires more nourishment. Thus my aging skin too requires a higher nourishment and better mask!"
And ta-daa - Dr Jou Derma Facial Mask will give me that!

(Image not mine!)

What's so unique about Dr. Jour Masks?
It contains 6 HAs. First in industry!
Different sizes of HA will penetrate into different layers of the skin.
2 HAs in the ingredients can actually penetrate into the deepest layer of your skin and immediately hydrate your skin. "You can feel it," he says.

Dr. Morita Masks Versus Dr. Jou Dema Facial Mask?
Dr. Jou Derma Facial Mask can instantly calm a bleeding and irritated skin (vigorous facial peeling!) and increases serum absorption by 13%.
Dr. Jou Derma Facial Mask sheet is made from a Japanese baby pampers brand that promises to suit even the most sensitive skin!
Dr. Jou Derma Facial Mask is suitable for more aging skin while Dr. Morita Masks suits those in their 20s.
Dr. Jou Derma Facial Mask contains much more serum as compared to those of Dr. Morita Masks.
Dr. Jou Derma Facial Mask is much slimmer and lighter compared to those of Dr. Morita Masks.

Here's Dr. Jou sharing with you his ultimate favorite! Read on below his tips when applying on masks.

Demo
A demo was carried out on this beautiful model.
Her skin's hydration level increased from 36.0°C to 55.5°C after a 10 mins application of the mask!
How impressive! I know, Dr. Morita's mask can also do that.
BUT, what's unique about Dr. Jou Derma Facial Mask is that the hydration will continue to increase or maintain even after 24 hours!
I love this idea and will update you when I have tried! ^^

(Review) Mary Kay Gel Semi-Shine Lipstick

I am a girl who never wears lip gloss coz I just don't really fancy super shiny & gooey lips.
Here with me is the Mary Kay Gel Semi-Shine Lipstick.

To be honest, I was actually quite excited when I got to try them!
The word "gel" makes it sound like a comfortable wear and that "semi-shine" makes me wanna own that moist lips with just the right amount of shine to it!

Since the word "matte" isn't there, I do not expect it to last long.
But... ^^
Let's try them out and the verdict is as below!


~~~


Features of Mary Kay Gel Semi-Shine Lipstick:
Exceptional Color & Glide - The base of the gel lipstick is translucent, allowing for rich color saturation. The surface of the lipstick is specially coated to transform it into a gel-like fluidity for smooth application.
Staying Power - Advanced "Cushion Matrix Technology" uses ultra fine silica microspheres to embed & retain color on the surface of the lips.
Soft Focus Effect - Optical diffusers in the lipstick helps create smooth appearance on lips & also prevents feathering/bleeding during application.
Lip Conditioning - Sunflower Seed Oil & Jojoba Butter helps to moisturize lips throughout application ^^ 

Uniqueness of Mary Kay Gel Semi-Shine Lipstick:
Dermatologist tested
Clinically tested for skin irritancy
Clinically tested for skin allergy

Packaging:
Upon opening them from their pink-black Mary Kay packaging, I see these sleek black packaging with silver accent. I like how the top of the cap is see-through as I can easily see the colors without the need to open them in the first place ^^

Love the sleek, chic design!

The left and right lipsticks shade looks almost identical but yet its not.
Left (Haute Pink) is more of a loud girly pink whereas the right (Raspberry Ice) is more of a dusty rose pink.
The centre (Tranquil Coffee) lipstick is more of a earthy-coral tone which I can rarely pull off.
Comment down below on which you think best suits me! :)
 

A closer look so you can distinguish the colors ^^

Swatches:
The colors are smooth and pigmented in just one swipe!

Swatches will be swiped from Left to Right!

From Top - Bottom:
Raspberry Ice (094624)
Tranquil Coffee (094618)
Haute Pink (094645)

Looks on Me:

#1 : Bee Lee's To-Go Everyday Look

Using the Mary Kay Gel Semi-Shine Lipstick in Raspberry Ice, I personally think it suits an everyday makeup look that I constantly go for - the No Makeup Makeup Look!

It has this dusty rose look to it. Not too loud and just similar to my natural lip color.
Definitely helps to make my lips look healthier with the pink tinge. What's best is that I do not need to apply lip balm prior to using this Semi-Shine lipstick range!

Ta-daa! My personal favorite, wearing Mary Kay Gel Semi-Shine Lipstick in Raspberry Ice!

#2: Bee Lee's Other Side of Me

This Mary Kay Gel Semi-Shine Lipstick in Tranquil Toffee, is more of an earthy color.

I rarely use this color as I cannot really pull off such color.
However, I think it looks not too bad on me! Maybe it'll help me look slightly more mature? XD

Not too bad right?
So far my favorite earthy lipstick that does not make me look sick or toooo mature ^^!

Oh, I also tried using it as a blusher!

Dot 3 dots. Hopefully it'll look natural ^^

Natural flush, me likey!
I love how its creamy gel texture allows for easy blending!
It is also build-able and would love to try it out as a contour or even eyeshadow!
*will update when I have done that!*
 

#3: Bee Lee's Girly Night Out

Using the Mary Kay Gel Semi-Shine Lipstick in Haute Pink, I personally think it is really feminine and girly.

I do not have much loud pink lippies like this!

Definitely opting this for occasion where I go for dates with my hubby or just hanging out with my girlfriends!



Verdict:
Upon application it feels creamy and hydrating. Just like a lip balm + lipstick!
Application is fast and easy. No bleeding or feathering! <3
My lips look smooth and feels comfortable
There is no greasy feeling.Thumbs up to that!

After some 3-4 hours, lips feel less creamy but not drying and also not that shiny anymore.
At this point, there is no color transfer at all which I am surprised and love!

After a meal, my lip color is still there! <3
Talking about the staying power of this semi-shine range, I am surprised!

But after 2-3 big/oily meals, of course, the application at the center of the lips are faded leaving an awkward outline of the lipstick. Re-application is a breeze, no worries. ^^

Overall, I really like the Mary Kay Gel Semi-Shine Lipstick as it does a wonderful moisturizing job without the need for me to apply lip balm prior to wearing the lipstick.
My lips looks much smoother and I definitely recommend for dryyy lips user like me.
Color pay off is awesome as it is vivid in just one swipe!

What I love about it too is that it is multi-functional, as a lipstick, lip balm, blusher and probably eye shadow too! ^^
Tell me if you have tried the last two functions ^^


Retails at:
Each Mary Kay Gel Semi-Shine Lipstick retails at RM55.

(Event) Diamond Sapindus Soap Launch

Remember I wrote a review on an interesting 100% organic soap before?
Just incase you need a quick recap of what this 1 Bar solves ALL, HERE is my full first impression review!

Congrats on their official launch and thanks for having me!


This shows you the various method of usage and how this one bar helps one maintain one's hygiene and improves the overall health.


Its so gentle even your baby can use for various skin issues like milk rash and so on.

If you are interested, hop over to their product info HERE.


Mr. Carlos Yong, Founder
Our first speaker is the founder and user of Diamond Sapindus Soap, Mr Carlos Yong.
He used to have skin issues, primarily human papillomavirus (HPV) infections.
Doctors told him its very common and that it cannot totally be cured.
Later, a friend of his introduced him to try the Diamond Sapindus Soap. He tried.
Mr Carlos felt significant improvement of his skin condition and decided to explore more and later on improved its ingredients and began its mass production.
The main ingredient of Diamond Sapindus Soap is Sapindus!

What is Sapindus?
It is recognised as the oldest praying bead in India and "Sapindus kernel" have since been named the "Bodisu". The rich tea polyphenols extracted the Sapindus kernel is able to clear facial oils, act as an astringent to minimize pores, disinfect, sterilize, and stop skin from aging!

This is a Chinese idiom but "edited" by Mr Carlos. It simply means we are always surrounded by "poison" without truly acknowledging their presence.

This is relatable as he explained on. According to Mr Carlos, one's skin issue arises when your skin has accummulated too much chemicals (aka poison) and over time, when your skin have bad reactions such as itchiness, there is no "cure" and can relapse anytime when something triggered it.


Dr. Chong, Founder
Another founder, Dr. Chong, further explains the various usage and importance of Sapindus.
She says that its especially helpful for ladies with odor issue especially during their menstrual cycle.
I must say, I love to use this Diamond Sapindus Soap as compared to the normal liquid body wash as it much more moisturizing and lightens my darkened area gradually.


Dr. Chong also taught us how to do the "invisible mask". This means that when you do the 2 minutes masking, you do not need to rinse off with water and let it dry on your face. OMG, I actually washed it off the first time when I tried it. XD But its ok. Will try again next time with it on IF I need to treat any itchiness and stuff like that.

She also mentions that you can use the "invisible mask" on areas like baby's milk rash, or even on your scalp to treat your dandruff issue and so forth.

They have received feedback from customers saying that their dandruff issue have recovered over a continuous one year usage and the hair amount have increased too. Nope, this soap does not accelerate hair growth BUT it cleanses and detox your scalp. "With a healthy scalp, embrace your healthy hair," she says.

Congrats again in bringing a soap that is children friendly and environmental friendly to us!
I am sure many would be interested in trying this, especially for travellers and ladies! ^^


Demo
A quick demo was performed by Mr Carlos on the many different brands of organic soap already in our market as well as on the Diamond Sapindus soap.

Each soap will be burnt under lighter and when it melt it will drip on the plastic.
It is said that if the soap contains chemical ingredients, the melted soap will actually melt through the plastic creating obvious holes.

Mr. Carlos starts burning with other brands and a kiddo was smelling each of it saying if its stinky or not after burning the soap.

Each soap when burnt, created holes on the plastic and also gives out a stinky smell.

Surprisingly, the Diamond Sapindus Soap does smell slightly different but not stinky and what's surprising is that the melted Diamond Sapindus Soap does not create holes on the plastic.!

This round the kiddo smelled the burnt Diamond Sapindus Soap and he actually said that it does not smell stinky.

They also dripped the melted Diamond Sapindus Soap on the plastic and there were no holes!!!
Amazing! I, as consumer, will be using this with ease since I have seen this demo LIVE ^^

It was an educational session and thanks for the thorough explanation and demo!
Also, Dr. Chong is in her 60s but her skin looks amazing still!

(Review) Ultra Violet Dessert Party at Caffé Bene 1U

Hello lovelies, if you have been following my IG stories, you would have seen a purple dessert tea party 2 weeks ago highlighting the seasonal menu of Caffé Bene, the Purple Sweet Potato series!

Everyone who attended, including me, was super duper excited as we embrace the 2018 pantone color both with out attire and food!

I rushed and just grabbed this purple dress from Cotton On 2 days before the event XD

My hubby for the first time in awhile complimented my attire saying I look Japanese ^^
Pic credits to Tiffany!

But........ I was wondering if I would dare to eat it as I have never really fancied or eat purple sweet potatoes in my life! XD

Indeed, the appearance encouraged me to take a bite from every dish & beverages in the series.
ALL of them looks so pretty and definitely instagram-able!


I ,too, like many of you, did not imagine that food in purple will look so good! ^^


By the way, this Caffé Bene exterior looks different right? I love how there is more natural lighting for perfect selfies and pictures! Also a perfect place to hang out with friends and work if you do not have internet yet (plenty of plug points!) XD


This is the outlet at 1 Utama Shopping Centre (Old Wing, facing open air carpark)


I like how we can get our order quickly ^^
I am actually greeted with this scene before going up! ^^

Awesome Butterflies (from L- R): Anis, Syahira (Althea Kr trainee; she so cute!), Sydney
More info of The Butterfly Project HERE.


Miriam and Sydney briefing us the all new Ultra Violet series by Caffé Bene

It was a cozy session in getting to know the new series by Caffé Bene.
We were also (forced) to ask a question each. XD
I love that Tammy mamasan made us do this as we actually get more info and ideas from other butterflies. ^^


Look at all of them! So much purple hues in a picture! I love purple as it gives me a sense of calmness, creativity and just mysterious and happy feels (depending on which purple it is!) 


A mandatory selfie with butterfly Choy Peng. Love her vibrant hair!


Twin for a day with butterfly Anis!


Purple Sweet Potato Series consists of:


Ultra Violet Sweet Potato Bingsu RM29.90
Ultra Violet Sweet Cream Waffle RM18.90
Ultra Violet Sweet Potato Latte (H/C) RM14.90
Ultra Violet Sweet Potato Frappeno RM16.90


Who caught my heart?
*drum rolls*

Its the Ultra Violet Sweet Cream Waffle!


It may look small but I think its quite a filling snack with your beverage for a quick tea time ^^

What I love about the waffle is when the hot & crunchy waffle meets the cooling purple sweet potato ice cream with the purple sweet potato paste in between. This made me eat one scoop after another.

Second place goes to Ultra Violet Sweet Potato Bingsu!


Look how huge the bingsu is!! Pic credits to CJ

Bingsu has an interesting mix of taste and texture that makes me feel healthy eating it. It has granola, purple sweet potato paste, jelly, nuts etc... Love the various textures in one scoop! First time officially eating a bingsu from Caffé Bene and I am lovin' this!

For you who loves frappeno then this is for you!
Love the purple sweet potato powder on top of the cream.



I am more of a latte girl. You can have it hot or cold but I prefer hot drinks for better digestion and it definitely taste healthy and aromatic. Also, it is non-caffiene!
Best to drink whilst its still warm or it'll taste slightly less aromatic (in my opinion).





I personally think that this hot latte is a healthier choice as I can see the fibre sediments (maybe?) of the sweet potato at the bottom of the mug.

All of the food and drink are majorly made of purple sweet potato paste (as it represents a staple food in Korea) and is surprisingly well received by the public in Malaysia!


Are you eating your bingsu the right way?
Lemme share with you the bene-way of eating their bingsu.
Firstly, DO NOT eat by layer!


1- snap a pic or 2 or 3.. XD
2- press the ice cream down
3- mix the ice cream, toppings with the shaved ice at the bottom!
4- eat!

It may be messy but you can see it in my Instagram @beeleec.
Forgot to take a picture coz I am just waiting to eat  =>  super YUMMY!


Final verdict:
Go try as this is a seasonal menu (till April 2018)!
It is ONLY available in Malaysia!
I personally never consume purple sweet potato but I LOVE LOVE IT NOW, thank you Caffé Bene for coming out with this series!


A final pic with my lover of the day! ^^
