BLee's 2-Week Review:
I use it every night before I sleep. On my more hardworking days my routine would be like this!
First Cleanser > Second Cleanser > Toner > Serum > Sleeping Pack.
But mostly I am on my LAZY days, only 1 Cleanser > Sleeping Pack XD.
Current skin condition: Dry combination with acne visiting especially my T-zones and a little on my cheek. Slight sensitivity too.

ID.AZ FACE FIT CU-V TENSIONING SLEEPING PACK

Brand: ID.AZ
Item: Face Fit CU-V Tensioning Sleeping Pack
Content: 30ml
Origin: Korea
Cost: RM199 (discounts available at Watsons online and offline)
Rating: 4.9/5
Re-purchase: Yes when I can splurge!

Star Ingredients:
ID-AST:312 - consists of Anemarrhena, Sage & African Marigold aids in Lifting.
ID-DCA.3 - consists of Buckwheat, Ginkgo Leaf, Lotus Leaf Blend Extract, Sodium Deoxcholate & Thyrosine Complex aids in Firming.
ID-SIV.FIT - consists of Turmeric, Gooseberry, Yam & Mulberry Complex Extract aids in Slimming.



Function:
Promotes slimming & firming function.
Smooth out wrinkles by enhancing elastin formation and helps maintain it.
SDC (Sodium Deoxycholate) smooth & tighten the face & break the fat in the skin.

How-to:
Use it every night before you sleep. It is the last step of your skincare routine.

Result among 24 users (ages between 29-55):
After 2 weeks, 8.87% experienced increase of dermal density & 21.61% experienced a more lifted cheek for saggy face.

Thoughts:

Packaging:
It comes in a cool ice-cube-looking packaging.
It would be great if a spatula comes with it for better hygiene.

Scent & Texture:
It is in this white cream that spreads easily, almost in between a gel & cream texture. It has this mild alcohol-ish but more of a high class aesthetic clinic kinda smell XD Lingers quite a bit and leave a layer of shine after application. It does take a while for it to be fully absorbed into the skin if you are just applying them on like your normal moisturizers. I do massage in an upward motion with my fingers (at my second week) to accelerate the absorption process and helps lifting effect more quickly attained!! ^^

Full Tub of Love:
I love how full the product is.
The last picture is after a rough 2 weeks usage and a little goes a long way! ^^
 

Hand Swatches:
Here is a quick hand swatch of how it dispenses (under natural lighting).
The next two pics are taken under a fluorescent lighting as it shows more clearly of the 'shine' that I am talking about. I did not massage much. Only apply like how I would apply any other moisturizer.

I find that using a tool or just massage with your fingers would greatly help the product to work as well as with its absorption ^^

Effectiveness:
After a religious 2-weeks usage, I observed that my forehead lines are slightly lighter (it will need a longer usage time to see more effect as they are quite deep imo). Although it is slightly "shiny" after application and waking to a "shinier" face the next morning, I do look forward to wake up and see my face as it looks glowy and almost flawless - my forehead lines were almost not visible to my naked eyes. However after rinsing my face, the forehead lines re-appear XD Let's hope they get lighter as I continue using them ^^
...
Incase if you are wondering how my morning routine is like:
Rinsing with water > Toner > Serum > Moisturizer > Sunscreen

Look at my cheeks!
Left is after Day 1 of usage while Right is after Day 14 usage.
I was really surprised to see the result coz for the first week I applied it like normal without any massaging or upward motion technique. I only started massaging with upward motion at week 2. XD Skin also seems healthier overall but of course do note that both images are taken under different lighting!!
From the above pic, it is obvious that my cheeks are more lifted and slightly smaller. Also, my neck lines are slightlyyyy lightened.

At this second pic I am just showing you a before (after Day 1 usage) and after (after Day 14 usage). It is to show you that they are taken under almost the same lighting with same location, to avoid the misunderstanding that I have become instantly fairer or anything. This is the glow I was talking about. I haven't wash my face yet XD

Overall:
Overall I really love using this product and would highly suggest you to only use at night as its price is steep but works effectively to help you achieve that beauty contour over night and also fight signs of aging!!! Of course, long term use and being discipline is really important to lead you to that V face you desire! I am also glad that I do not experience any itchy reaction or anything bad so it is approved by my dry-combination and slightly sensitive skin. The only slight con is the layer of shine after application. I feel that it will transfer onto my pillow every night while I sleep with my face on my pillow. Anyhow, it is countered when I wake up to a glowy flawless face the next morning ^^

What do you do to prepare for your CNY? :)
Get this to make your face feel CNY-ready!! ^^

(Review) Althea X Titi Kamal Stay Fresh Body Sparkling Mist

Yeay! Another Althea Exclusive from Althea X Titi Kamal collaboration fragrance! It was a December parcel as well and I have been using it on-off since. I only use perfumes when I have important events. I do not own any body mist as my hubby's nose cannot tolerate scents much. I guess mist would be a milder option comparing to perfumes so it'd be great for me.

Brand: Althea X Titi Kamal
Item: Stay Fresh Body Sparkling Mist
Content: 100ml
Origin: Korea
Cost: RM35
Re-purchase: YES

Ingredients:
Alcohol, Water, Glycerin, Fragrance*, Pentylene Glycol, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Rosa Damascena Flower Water, Butylene Glycol, 1,2-Hexanediol, Sambucus Nigra Flower Extract, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Flower Extract, Magnolia Liliflora Flower Extract, Plumeria Rubra Flower Extract, Lilium Tigrinum Extract, Ethylhexylglycerin.

Star Ingredients:
Damask Rose Water - Keeps the skin hydrated and gives a gentle fragrance.
Orange Flower extract - Refreshes the senses.
Elder Flower Extract - Cools and soothes the skin while giving out a feminine scent.

Function:
A lightweight feminine scented body mist with fruity & floral notes of orange + peach + rose.

How-to Use:
Spritz above and walk under. Or at pulse area like your wrists, neck and behind your ear.
I sometimes went a bit extra buy spritzing onto my comb and go through my hair (if I ever reach for my comb!).

Thoughts:
Simply loving the feminine rosey-fruity scent! <3

Packaging:
The packaging is simply girly. It would be great if I can somehow see the amount that is left. ^^

Texture & Scent:
It dispenses in a spray form and I like how it dispenses finely. Upon dispensing it smells strongly of rose-y fruity scent which is quite refreshing for someone who doesn't actually wear any perfume.

Effectiveness & Likeness to Purchase:
I like using it as a pick me up when there are important events to attend to. It does linger a few hours but not last the whole day on my body. I do read that other's find it really long lasting. However, I find it especially long lasting on my hair. Overall, its a good to have product and portable for easy touchup when necessary. I personally would prefer a perfume more for a full day out but the mist as hair mist is my go-to!

If you are a fan of Titi Kamal, you should check this body mist out! Definitely great to travel with and adds points of femininity when needed ^^

4/5

~~~


Which of the 8 products above are you most keen to try? For me it'd be the Dr. Glamogenic Brassica Peeling Gel  because I can get super lazy in my beauty routine thus a peeling gel like this will greatly help me in achieving cleaner pores ^^

***
I cannot find easy-to-refer details both in cosdna and skincarisma. But from the ingredient list, we can see that alcohol is the third in ingredient list and thus one should do a patch test first before applying it on your face! As for my slight sensitive skin, my skin loves it!
Other pros that my skin love are highlighted below!

All the Extracts & Benefits:
Brassica Oleracea Italica (Broccoli) Extract - Contains Lutein that protects skin from oxidative damage.

How-to Use:
After cleansing and tapping your face dry, dispense an appropriate amount of Peeling Gel and apply to entire face excluding eye and lip area. Gently rub along with skin texture and rinse with lukewarm water. Use 2-3 times a week depending on skin condition.

Thoughts:
Overall, I really like how gentle it is on my dry combination with slight sensitive skin. There are obvious brightening from the picture below! You may check this product out if you still haven't found your ideal yet gentle exfoliator!

A: See the milky texture.
B: A closer look after spreading the product on my face , you can see the blue beads.
C: After a quick exfoliation and rubbing, you will only see the white clumpy textures.
D: My AFTER. Can you see my brighter complexion? Especially my forehead!!! <3
Packaging:
Clean, simple tube packaging for easy dispensing. Would be great if I can see the amount left.

Texture & Scent:
Milky gel texture with blue beads that melt into skin and turn watery. Lastly turns into white clumpy balls as it exfoliates away my dead skin cells and impurities. It has this mild, refreshing citrusy scent that does not linger once rinsed off.

A: How the peeling gel looks like upon dispensing.
B: You can spot the blue beads after spreading the products more.
C: Rubbing in circular motion and the milky gel turns clear and watery.
D: After a while the white clumps appear.
E: A smoother to touch hands after rinsing and tapping dry. Not so obvious in pic when comparing to my non-exfoliated hands.

Effectiveness:
I like how easy it is in application. The whole peeling process was fast and I can see obvious brightening effect and more even skin tone after one use. Skin is more softer but doesn't really last for a long while. It was super gentle I swear it'll suit all skin types, even my slight sensitive skin loves it too!

Do share with me your experience if you have tried this or any other Dr. Glamogenic products. ^^

(Review) Althea Pore Purifying Serum Cleanser

Yeay! Another skin care from Althea brand! It was a December parcel and I have been using it since. Not too sure what to expect from a serum cleanser but I was extra excited for it coz it sounds like a very dry skin friendly product.

Brand: Althea
Item: Pore Purifying Serum Cleanser
Content: 150ml
Origin: Korea
Cost: RM33
Re-purchase: YES

Ingredients:
Water, PEG-7 Glyceryl Cocoate, Cyclomethicone, Isononyl Isononanoate, Dipropylene Glycol, 1,2-Hexanediol, Malaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Extract, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Mentha Arvensis Leaf Extract, Glycerin, Citric Acid, Hydroxyacetophenone, Disodium EDTA, Ethylhexylglycerin, Sodium Citrate, Butylene Glycol, Fragrance*
(+++) Refer to Star Ingredients below!
(---) Acne skin type, please use with caution as Jojoba Seed Oil may irritate your skin. Contains very low amount of fragrance.
*Full details at Cosdna HERE

Star Ingredients:

Mint Leaf Extract - Cools down the skin & soothes irritations
Jojoba Seed Oil - Deeply moisturizes any dryness without feeling heavy
Tea Tree Leaf Extract - Has antibacterial properties that purify the skin

Function:
Whisks away makeup, dirt, and oil with Mint Extracts while ensuring the skin stays cool and hydrated with its unique dual moisture cell system that envelopes the skin in a serum-like formula.
It prevents skin from drying out and effectively minimizes enlarged pores, keeping it smooth to touch.
Balance pH levels of the skin to keep it working in tip top shape!
Gentle on face and suitable even for those with sensitive skin.

Thoughts:
My go-to for fist cleanser and I must say I don't use my second cleanser much these days ^^

A: An almost full make up. I used cushion foundation, cushion contour, eye liner, brow powder and two types of lip products. DId not have mascara on coz one of my eyes are kinda bruised. XD
B: I sprinkled a few drops of water on the Left side of my face.
C: I rubbed a few drops of Althea Pore Purifying Serum Cleanser on the Left side of my face.
D: Double checking with my point remover and there is just a superrrr minimal amount of cushion foundation left.
***
Awesome huh! Usually there won't be any leftover makeup coz I rub way longer and all whilst using some cleansing tool or just with my bare hands.

Packaging:
I love the simple packaging and the color is calming.
I also know the amount left and when to restock! ^^

Texture & Scent:
Texture is a runny clear solution with a pleasant fragrance of perfume-y tea tree scent. I am glad the fragrance is not overpowering yet its soothing to end my day. It is not the super oily kind of first cleanser which is amazing!

The shiny part is where I have dripped my serum cleanser on with a few drops of water too.

How I Use & Effectiveness:
Its a first cleanser and I pretty much use it alone without second cleansers on most days. I just wet my face, apply a few drops onto my palm and then go into my face in circular motion. I love that my skin is reacting so positively to it. It melts away my makeup and dirt at the end of the day. My face doesn't feel tight & also not oily for my dry skin which is awesome! Definitely sealing the goodness with my moisturizer at the end of the routine.

Con but Solvable:
The only con I find is that it kinda stings when I try to rub it in along my eye line(when removing my eyeliner). This only happens when I have too much water on my face with or without makeup. After rinsing the stinging and slight cloudiness is gone. (My Recommendation) I do recommend to go in with a point remover first for the eye makeup. However if you want to go in with the first cleanser alone without using any point remover, I suggest to apply the Althea Pore Purifying Serum Cleanser on a drier face or with just a few sprinkles of water on face prior to application. The water helps to reduce amount of first cleanser use while also melting your makeup up easily. With a thicker makeup I recommend to apply it on dry face with your fingers or cotton pad, then only rinse off.

Overall:
Overall, I love using it as it does not give the oily sensation and I do not need the emulsifying step which makes my first cleanser step so easy and quick. I will definitely re-purchase as it is cost-friendly and effective for a first cleanser!

See how easy it is melting the makeups!! ^^

Rating:
4.8/5

Loving this and will definitely re-purchase!
You should give it a try too if you haven't found a preferred first cleanser yet! ^^
