First Impressions of Yves Rocher products are as follow:
The Hydra Micellar Shampoo is refreshing with a fruity scent and a little goes a longggg way as it lathers really easily - thus, it is value for money! The Olive Petit Grain Concentrated Shower Gel dispenses uniquely and clean, I love the dispensing design and its my first time seeing it! It feels really genius! It has a citrus scent and cleans well leaving soft skin after. The Hydra Vegetal Ultra-Fresh Cleansing Gel dispenses in gel form and like every other gel cleanser it does feel gentle and leave a soft skin after.

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 Much?

(Review) Althea A'bloom Review

If you have read about the launch, HERE, you'd know that this is A'bloom line is by Althea Korea.
This range is all about fast, fresh and funky k-beauty product!

Lets unbox with me and jump into my thoughts about them too!

The box is so cute and fun! They are the limited edition A'bloom boxes!


~~~


A'bloom Refreshing Skin Mask Pack   /   25g
(RM2 per piece OR RM15 for 10 pieces)

There are 4 variants to treat your ever changing concerns. Aren't the names CUTE!!!!
~~~
Features:
Strong antioxidant with harmony of fruits and natural ingredients of plants that provide custom care solution for different skin type (hydration, nutrition, whitening and blemishes). The pH balancing helps strengthen skin barrier as well as re-charge the skin with fresh energy. Sheet masks are made of 100% natural eco-friendly fabric that provides close adhesion while effectively deliver the rich fruits essence deep into the skin letting skin maintaining moisture until next day. The essences are formulated with reduced viscosity that are available in creams.
~
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. It contains natural ingredients to help gently deep cleanse the pores and removing dead skin cells while preventing any irritation or redness on the skin. 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! ^^

Giant Meringue Puff

Brand: A'bloom
Item: Giant Meringue Puff
Content: 1 piece
Cost: RM8
Rating: 4.5/5
Re-purchase: Yes

Material:
Made of non-latex sponge with hydrophilic properties that can grow 1.5x bigger than its normal size when soaked in water, allowing makeup to be applied perfectly on the skin. 

Packaging:
Cute pastel, meringue-inspired puffs

How-to:
Use it wet for a moist, glossy finish OR dry for a matte, flawless finish.

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

Baby Meringue Puff

Brand: A'bloom
Item: Baby Meringue Puff
Content: 3 pieces
Cost: RM11
Rating: 4.8/5
Re-purchase: YES

Material:
Made of non-latex sponge with hydrophilic properties that can grow 1.5x bigger than its normal size when soaked in water, allowing makeup to be applied perfectly on the skin.

Packaging:
Cute pastel, meringue-inspired puffs

How-to:
Use it wet for a moist, glossy finish OR dry for a matte, flawless finish.

Thoughts:
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

That's all from me! Hope this post is helpful for you!
Other masks review will be up in my IG when I do use them. ^^
You may check out the A'bloom products yourself at Althea while the freebies are still available!

It claims to instantly removes makeup, locks in hydration & protects the skin against pollutants!!!
Let’s see how it does it!

These explains how user feels clean, soft and supple after usage WITHOUT any rising required!

Hada Labo 3-in1 Micellar Cleansing Water is also a must-have these days since pollution is something very hard to prevent or remove just by any other normal Cleansing Water. It is formulated with triple anti-pollution property that helps to remove and protect the skin against harmful air-pollutants and forms a protective barrier against PM2.5 pollutant particles.

Pump an appropriate amount onto cotton pad and gently wipe off all makeup residues within seconds.  No rinsing is required.

Packaging:
Innovative & hygienic pump head allows easy removal with a single hand.

Texture & Scent:
Colorless water texture with no scent.



Effectiveness:
I have been using for at least two weeks. I love how it easily removes my daily makeup. I usually have concealer, powder, brows, liner, blushers, highlight, and sometimes contour and also eyeshadow. I find that using a point remover prior this micellar cleansing water is not necessary as it can remove even my waterproof liner & mascara. It’s really gentle and mild on my dry-combination & slight sensitive skin. Definitely an affordable alternative compared to my HG Bioderma Cleansing Water. Even if a second cleanser is not necessary, it is still recommended to not skip second cleansers. Biggest pro is that one hand is sufficient to easily and quickly remove makeup while the con, I haven't find any for now. XD

The swatches consists of waterproof and non-waterproof liners fromMiss Hana, Clio, Wet n Wild as well as Maybelline; also swatched and Althea concealer and strong staining lippie. Next, I let the soaked cotton pad with Hada Labo 3-in-1 Micellar Cleansing Water sit on the swatches for a few seconds and rub off gently. I am surprised it is all removed like 99% XD quite clean to my naked eyes. I love using this too at mid day to refresh my skin from  the dirt and oil collected then. And then I will re-apply my sunscreen to keep my skin protected. When do you use your cleansing water other than at the end of the day? :)

Where to get?
Available at all pharmacies nationwide starting April 2019!!!

(Review) My Easy Salon-Grade Hair Care Routine with Le Ment Sparkling Oil Cleansing & Shampoo

Hello loves!
How's your May so far?

Mine has been progressing quite well and I hope for the same too this coming June!
I was introduced to Le Ment Sparkling Oil Cleansing & Shampoo and decided to incorporate it into my hair care routine. FYI, I have flaky scalp issue (dry on the inside and oily on the outside) and flat hair (after day 2 of washing my hair). Moreover, my bleached hair parts are also dry and tangles easily. What's your hair/scalp concerns?

Bee's Current Hair Care Routine:
Shampoo > conditioner > hair oils (optional)
~
Last time, hair conditioner alone wasn't sufficient and I always opted for hair mask on a daily or alternate-day basis just so my hair won't tangle while showering XD After that, I also need to apply plenty of hair oils after my hair is almost dry. Read more below on my thoughts ^^ 


~~~


About?
Le Ment Sparkling Oil Cleansing & Shampoo is a salon-grade shampoo, containing high concentration of carbonated* premium essential oil for the perfect scalp spa experience. It overall helps to develop silky hair starting from the scalp with premium luxury essential oils and 9 organic plants. These are recommended to be used every 3 days. It is also silicone-free with low stimulation of amino acid. How awesome!!! <3

It looks really classy and nice! However its all in Japanese so read on more below to know more about it! Although it recommends to use every 3 days, you can also use it every day or alternate day, depending on your scalp and hair issue. For my hair and scalp situation, I cannot believe that from washing my hair every alternate day, I can now wash my hair every 3 days without feeling oily or dirty!!! AMAZING!!

Key Essential Oils:
Baobab Oil, Argan Oil and Cupacu Oil - Moisturizing; for hair repair and makes hair shiny and beautiful.
Lipidure® - Moisturizing properties extends even after 1 hour of hair washing and drying.
Hydrolyzed Keratin (Wool) - Hair repairing from inside out. Elasticity & moisture is maintained.
Fullerenes - Moisturizing, skin resurfacing (anti-aging care).

9 Organic Plants:
Lemon Extract
Horsetail Extract
Hops Extract
European Red Pine Berry Extract
Rosemary Leaf Extract
Calendula Extract
Lavender Extract
Chamomile Extract
Sage Extract

Why is carbonic acid used?
High concentration of carbonic shampoo's ultra fine foam can penetrate into the tiny gaps that normal shampoo cannot. These ultra fine foam helps to clean the sebum and peracidified lipids (the cause of smelly scalp), and returns to its original clean state. Alkaline residue caused by dyeing, straightening and perming can be washed off, restoring the scalp to a weak healthy acid (pH4.5-5.5). Thus, healthy scalp and hair is maintained.

How is Carbonate* different from Salon and Le Ment?
The concentration of carbonate used in the general salon carbonate scalp SPA is 1,000 ppm, while Le Ment is using carbonate concentration of 5,000 ppm. Not only that, ingredients are carefully selected from precious high-priced luxury essential oils sourced from all over the world. It is also silicone-free. It is definitely an easy and effective shampoo to repair & cleanses our hair and scalp at the comfort of our own home!

Low stimulation of Amino Acid for:
Remove alkaline condition of hair (without excessive cleaning) leaving hair in a healthy weak acid state. It also helps close hair cuticles for a healthy hair and scalp.

Suitable for?
Aging hair.
No shine hair.
Dry, brittle hair.
Flat at hair root.
Smelly, oily scalp.

Let's jump right into the product shall we! :)


Brand: Le Ment
Item: Sparkling Oil Cleansing & Shampoo
Content: 200g
Origin: Japan
Re-purchase: YES! Definitely using it every 3 days to maintain a healthy clean scalp!

Packaging:
Expensive-looking, brown metallic pump bottle with a plastic cap.
I like that its easy to use and control the amount dispensed.

Scent & Texture:
A mild, perfume-y scent which I cannot really identify. According to the site, its actually the scent of luxurious white jasmine in thick, white, dense foam.

How-to:
1. Rinse the hair and scalp with lukewarm water for pre-washing.
2. Shake well, squeeze an appropriate amount onto palm and apply it evenly to scalp and hair.
3.Do massage the scalp before rinsing it off.
4. Proceed with your usual hair conditioner.
*2 ping pong balls size for medium hair length and around 3 ping pong balls size for long hair.*

I advise to go with one ping pong ball size at a time. I find creating bubbles with it is much easier when I go in with 2 rounds of shampoo-ing & my scalp feels cleaner. ^^

Thoughts:
I love the packaging as its really easy to use and amount dispensed is super easy to control. After my second usage, I got to know more on how to maximize its effectiveness based on my scalp condition. Overall my scalp feels clean and healthy after cleansing. It also does not over-strip my scalp's natural oil so I do not feel itchy or anything like that which is good! I noticed I use lesser hair conditioner and hair oil which shows that this Le Ment Sparkling Oil Cleansing & Shampoo really do have moisturizing properties while also thoroughly cleanse my scalp ^^ I can last 3 days before I need to wash my hair. Isn't that great! Especially for those who have to look on point and always on-the-go! ^^

Both images are taken on day 2 after washing my hair.
As you can see in the BEFORE, my hair starts to become 'streaky' on day 2 in the noon and my manes are just dry and tangles at the ends even after applying hair oil (4 pumps) on day 1 itself.
In the AFTER, my hair still looks fresh on day 2 in the noon and my manes are looking more smooth & neat. It also does not tangle as much and I did use hair oil (1-2 pumps) on day 1 itself.

This is how I shampoo my hair to maximize the effectiveness of the shampoo:
#1 After rinsing my hair, on my first round of shampooing, I went in with 2 ping pong ball sized and assure it's spread all over my scalp only. I massaged it awhile and rinsed it off. This will enable the dirt and grime to be rinsed off.
#2 Second round of shampooing, I used a total of 3ish ping pong ball sized, bit-by-bit. This round I find it easier to create foams when massaging my scalp and also bring them down to my pony tails. I let them sit a minute or two while I apply my conditioner. After a while I rinsed both the shampoo and conditioner off. This round of rinsing allows deeper cleansing of dead skin and flaky dandruff on my scalp. My scalp does not feel over-stripped. Hair also feels smooth without the need of my usual hair masking every time when I wash my hair.

I am really happy to discover this carbonated shampoo from Japan as my scalp is reacting so positively. Also super glad that I can now shampoo lesser and start having a more healthy scalp and hair! Can't wait to order more from them! ^^

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