Are you still finding for suitable hair shampoo and treatments?

Today I am introducing to you Moist Diane, their renewed Argan Oil series.

Just checking out the scents in the cute little bottles ^^
It smells nice for me, not sure how strong it will actually be during application and how long it will last throughout the day. My friend tried the Repair variant and she has smooth hair.

Moist Diane is a leading hair care brand in Japan and is especially beneficial for Asian hair.

Don't ask me what's unique or different about Asian to Western hair. I don't know.
But according to google, Asian hair is said to be thicker (usually) but less dense compared to Caucasian hair and can also be frizzy at most times. Thus managing thick and frizzy hair is tough.

Moist Diane is here to help tame your frizzy hair and bring even the dullest and most tangled Asian hair into the most beautiful crown you'll never ever have to take off!!!

Do You Know?
Moist Diane Perfect Beauty series uses the wonder of nature combine with the powers of science and renewed their signature Argan Oil series. It was launched in Japan last September and guess what? A million bottles were sold in just the first 10 days!!!

This renewed range of their signature Argan Oil series has 6 shampoos and 6 treatments that are enriched with Moroccan Argan Oil and Customized Beauty Keratin to address different hair concerns of Asian women. It also comes in pretty and elegant packaging of their brand's trademark of diamond-shaped patterns.

Extra Damage Repair - Amino Keratin provides deep intensive repair to gaps and holes on the hair surface. (For: Damaged, permed and colored hair).
Extra Moist and Shine - Platinum Keratin helps to restore moisture and creates more surface area to reflect light and form a natural "angel ring" glow around the crown. (For: Dry & dull hair).
Extra Vital - Vitalizing Keratin nourishes scalp and restores hair strength and vitality. (For: Weak hair prone to breakage).
Extra Smooth and Straight - Cuticle Keratin infuses moisture back into dry and coarse hair, tames frizzy hair and smooths damaged hair cuticles. (For: Frizzy & coarse hair).

Extra Volume and Scalp - Volumizing Keratin adds body to flat, limp hair and soothes sensitive scalp. (For: Flat hair & sensitive scalp).
Extra Fresh and Hydrate - Feather Keratin leaves hair hydrated, light and airy. (For: Oily scalp & dry ends).

3 Scientific Key Features of Moist Diane Perfect Beauty range:
Nano Repair Matrix is a sensor technology that helps detect damaged hair and allows the nano-sized Organic Argan Oil and Beauty Keratin capsules to be absorbed into layers of each hair strands, and in turn nourish and repair hair structures.
Nano Repair EL is a unique ingredient that is activated by heat from the hair dryer. Once it detects the heat, it will penetrate into the hair shaft to boost hair elasticity, radiance and resilience giving supple hair!
Moist Diane Original Gentle Cleansing Complex gently cleanses and rejuvenates the hair without any burden.

On that day, there were also a quick hair makeover session too.
No, I did not curl my hair XD



Tiger (Mr. Keigo Hishiya) gave his insights on Moist Diane products.
The Extra Fresh and Hydrate Variant is specifically made for our hot & humid tropical Malaysia weather. This is because we often sweat and very quickly we have oily scalp, consequently we have the very not sexy limp hair! XD It also protects the hair from UV rays, helps minimize hair loss, decrease split ends as well as giving the volume and hydration where it needs. ^^

(Event) Pure Beauty Illuminating Urban Shield Launch + First Impressions

Hello loves, it has been awhile.

Always glad to meet these baes, gorgeous Bella and Kelly.
(Image by Kelly's camera and I further edited the pic using Snapseed).

We were gathered by Watsons Malaysia at Common Ground and the place was wonderful with loads of natural sunlight shining through. This marks the launch of the revolutionary Korean beauty care technology that "shields" our skin against air pollution - Illuminating Protective Skin Care Range.

"Inspired by Nature, Perfected by Science"

Illuminating Urban Shield range consists:
Illuminating Urban Shield Radiance Serum (RM59.90), Illuminating Urban Shield Capsule Essence (RM69.90), Illuminating Urban Shield Water Gel (RM55.90), Illuminating Urban Shield Radiance Cream (RM59.90), Illuminating Urban Shield Sun Protector SPF 50+ PA++++ (RM49.90).

Pure Beauty is based on 4Ps philosophy: Preparation, Preservation, Protection and Prevention.
It is dermatologically tested, paraben-free, lanolin-free and alcohol-free.

This new range, the Illuminating Urban Shield contains star ingredient of Neurolight (derived from Natural Star Lily) that helps decrease dark spots. By using this whole range, you will achieve healthy looking skin that glows from within, decrease dark spots, strengthens the skin's barrier and shielding the skin from harmful elements.

Today's workshop session with Shazreeyana Shukri. While she shares her experience of using the Illuminating Urban Shield Range herself, she also demonstrated on an artist of how easy it is to achieve that No Make Up Make Up look ^^

According to Shazreeyana Shukri (professional MUA), after using the whole collection for about 3 weeks, friends and family around her noticed the illumination and overall a healthier skin even without wearing any foundation or base makeup. I need to work for a skin like that too and am glad its of affordable drugstore skin care ^^


~~~


Bee Lee's First Impression:

In the pretty PR package there are 3 out of the 5 items in the Illuminating Urban Shield range.

The Illuminating Urban Shield Capsule Essence is their Star Product.
In a typical skincare routine, after cleansing, hop into toner then essence step.

The pearlised capsule looks so interesting and cool. It not only looks cool but it also assures that each application is of the freshest and most effective state when absorb by your skin.

As it contains Neurolight (derived from Organic Star Lily), it reduces dark spot, helps even skin tone, giving you a more luminous and smooth skin. It dissolves into the skin leaving no residue but takes quite some time to be fully absorbed before the tackiness disappears too.

After the essence step, we move on to Illuminating Urban Shield Radiance Serum. It is slightly more heavy thus Shazreeyana herself uses it only at night.

For moisturizers there are two types. Firstly is the Illuminating Urban Shield Water Gel and it is definitely light and watery like its name imply. It is said to be more suitable for people with oily skin type and for those who prefers light moisturizers. It also as a light moisturizer for the day and can be worn under make up ^^

As a dry to combination skin type, I lean more on the Illuminating Urban Shield Radiance Cream as my day and night moisturizer.

Look at the pearlescent tub with mirror-like cap. So luxe looking!
Just hoped that it comes with a mini spatula for better hygiene.
Anyhow, I do use my own mini spatula from other jars.

It is said to be much more hydrating and intense compared to the Water Gel but I find that it is just nice for my thirsty skin ^^ Shazreeyana also mentioned that oily-combination users can use this as sleeping mask 1-2 times a week. ^^

Lastly, the Illuminating Urban Shield Sun Protector SPF 50+ PA++++ that not only hydrates us but also protects us from our endless exposures to harmful UVAs and UVBs.

As usual, tips like this in a tube form ensures easy dispensing and travel-friendly. ^^

It dispenses in a white cream that is watery and light. No white cast is observed and absorbs into the skin fast with NO tackiness <3

Tips for better application & absorption:
Place serum/essence on fingers/palm and rub gently to further activate the effect. Push serum/essence into skin by push & press motion on face and neck.

(Event) A More Natural Brushing Experience with Red Seal Natural Toothpaste

Hello loves.

What brand of toothpaste do you get for you and your family?


How many of us actually check what's in our toothpaste?
I don't know about you but I used to just go with anything until both, my hubby and I have sensitive gums, we opt for sensitive series in brands already in the market. Maybe I shall try this instead?

Its a habit for me to generalize that all toothpastes already in the market is safe since everyone is using it! I realize that its a really really WRONG assumption as it can bring more bad effects in the long run.

Do you know that the mucosal lining inside the mouth has approximately 90% absorption rate? Can you imagine how many toxic chemicals were actually absorbed throughout the many hours and years of brushing our teeth?

About Red Seal:


From L - R :
Dr. Daniel Zuellig (Director of Cambert Malaysia), Michelle Irving (Naturopath of Endeavour Consumer Health), Mr. LB Tan (Supply Chain Director of Caring Pharmacy), Mr. YS Chong (CEO of Caring Pharmacy), Anthony Robinson (International Director of Endeavour Consumer Health), Sean Duggan (CEO of Endeavour Consumer Health), Andrew Vidler (Executive General Manager of Endeavour Consumer Health), HC Ch'ng (Procurement Director of Caring Pharmacy), JL Loo (Marketing Diirector of Caring Pharmacy), & SL Ho (General Manager of Caring Pharmacy).

Red Seal is a brand from New Zealand, since 1923. In the filed of  toothpaste, they have been serving for 34 years. They are on the quest to cut down the amount of chemicals in our toothpaste, thus enable us (consumers) to have a more natural and safer brushing experience.

Consumers nowadays (including me!) are also looking for safer alternatives, not only for themselves but also for their loved ones. We are aware of potential irritants even in the toothpaste we use. Among the potential irritants are artificial colors and flavors, triclosan, parabens, and microbeads.

Red Seal natural toothpastes replace the potential irritants / chemicals with more natural herbal extracts and essential oils like eucalyptus, aniseed, and peppermint. The combination of ingredients make the toothpaste highly alkaline (pH > 8), creating an environment discouraging the growth of bacteria.

"With 99% market share in the herbal toothpaste category in New Zealand, Red Seal has expanded from a strong base to being available in Australia, China, Korea, Japan, Taiwan, Singapore, across the Pacific and now in Malaysia," said Tony Robinson (International Director of Red Seal).

Key Ingredients:

Totara Oil - Totara Tree is a native tree of New Zealand; Totara Oil is a naturally occurring plant extract that comes from recycled totara. Totarol is a natural alternative to reduce bad bacteria in our mouth.
Calcium Carbonate base - it naturally rebuilds / remineralises the teeth.

Variants:

There are in total of 5 variants:
Natural Toothpaste - their Signature. It is a combination of 12 herbs & extracts to aid in remineralization and killing off the bacteria to prevent tooth decay and plaque formation. It has a mild, minty pleasant taste, suitable for the whole family!
Natural SLS Free Toothpaste - It is free of Sodium Lauryl Sulphate (SLS). Thus, providing gentle protection on the mucuos layer. Definitely suitable for people with braces!
Baking Soda Toothpaste - Remove stains naturally, especially handy for coffee / tea drinkers. It has also been used as a natural teeth whitener.
Propolis Toothpaste - Contains 100% New Zealand bee propolis with antiseptic and antibacterial properties. Ideal for gingivitis and sensitive gums sufferers.
Kids Toothpaste - It has real banana and peach flavors! This yummy taste will sure encourage your kiddos to brush their teeth without worrying about the risk of swallowing harmful chemical! ^^

The price range for this Red Seal Natural Toothpaste is between RM18.70 - RM28.20.

Will get this for my nephew soon ^^

Have you tried any of these line? :)

From the Q&A, I think I will get this soon as its more preferred by new users ^^

Q&A Session:

One very important question a lot of you will be concerned is, "Can I just conveniently get the Natural Toothpaste for my whole family including toddlers?" The answer is, "Yes, as long as your kids don't mind the minty scent. However, if your kid prefer the Kids Toothpaste taste and desires for their own toothpaste, then get the Kids Toothpaste for them as you do not have to worry if they do swallow it accidentally." XD

Testimonials:

Miss Ana (Korean) has been working in Malaysia quite some years. She have been a loyal user for the past 2.5 years. She have been searching high and low for a suitable toothpaste for her sensitive gums. Until one day when she visited her friend in New Zealand. That time she was also moving to a more healthy (lesser chemical) skincare and also toothpaste and her health-junkie friend introduced her to Red Seal. She have been trying it awhile and persuaded her whole fam and a few friends to try. She is very happy with her choice and would recommend the propolis series!
***
The proud user below is a mother of 2 boys. A pharmacist herself looks at the ingredients alot and she chooses Red Seal because she is more at ease even if her child really swallows the toothpaste. XD
