Parfums-Annick Goutal

Salam People,

To stay good and feel need to smell good too :-). Yes, everybody has their own scents it citrus, floral, fruity or musky as long it smells good on us aite?

EDT (Eau de toilette) or EDP (Eau de parfums) or Parfums itself, depending on your preference too -
  • Eau De Parfum (EDP) - This is lighter than Perfume, with more concentration from EDT, and so is less expensive but still has long lasting characteristics, from 3 to 5 hours.

  • Eau De Toilette (EDT) - This is a lighter more delicate fragrance and is therefore most suited to everyday use. It is normally less expensive than Eau de Parfum, and lasts for 2 to 4 hours.
(psstt...The higher the concentration of perfume oil, the more expensive the fragrance and the longer lasting the scent. Typically a pure perfume will not be sold in a spray bottle but in a very small bottle for the buyer to "dab" onto the skin. A little pure perfume goes a long way!)

My personal scent is sweet, fresh & fruity-hence I felt in love with Annick Goutal Petite Cherie. Received the 1st sample while I was buying my make up stuff at Kens Apothecary-Empire Shopping Gallery @ Subang (The sales person is smart eh...killing 2 birds at a time-guess you know what I mean). To make matters complicated...hahahahaha...while I was doing my job to make up one of my customer...her finishing touch, she seeked my assistance to spray her whole body with Annick Goutal - Petite Cherie AND now I have one bottle of my own! : D (Can't resist it anymore!!)

The above pic - Limited Edition Bottle

The difference between limited edition and normal - it is just the RIBBON :D

Annick Goutal offers wide range of scents for men and women--ALL are UNIQUE smell - give it a try :D

Acne, Pimples, Zits & Breakouts

Salam People,

I am back!!!...hehehehe. Back to reality and back to work *sigh*. I bet all of us will feel the same after a vacation-a mixed feeling of everything....tired, boredom and etc. Wish the time is longer and we can have more quality time with our loved ones. Face the fact that we CAN'T...we have our responsibilities and commitments-without it...we can't have the vacation either :P

While I was away on my holiday---most of the time I was out in the sun. I have an oily combination skin and you can imagine a day out in the sun with no time to refresh your the time I clean my face ...I can feel small zits all over my cheek. I was like "Oh No!...then it strike my mind..."Dalacin T" my life saver!.

I cleansed my face using BB cleansing oil and follow thru with BB skin tonic and only then I used my Dalacin T. Leave it for 2-3 minutes before I apply my moisturizer.

When I woke up in the morning--small zits dissapeared! Yes it did! :-). That's why I call it my life saver!

The best acne solution ever! :-)

Travelling Kit

Salam People,

Since I'm going for another getaway but this time with my kids and my better half-loads of stuff needs to be packed! Kids clothing will always be my priority as they tend to sweat a lot and when they are out and running, incidences happened (ice cream patches, chocs & etc). Besides than clothing...I've always ensure that I carry along my skincare travelling kit. A must bring items :

  • Cleansing Oil (I do not use a foam or gel cleanser as Bobbi Brown cleasing oil makes wonder and I do not have to double cleanse either!)
  • Face Tonic (toner)
  • Moisturiser
  • Sun block for face
  • Dalacin T (My pimples solutions-my life saver!)

As for my make up stuff-basic stuff need to carry along :-

  • Concealer
  • Foundation (optional if you are wearing a two way powder-foundation & powder)
  • Two way powder (Currently I'm using MAC fix-NC40)
  • Blusher
  • Lip Balm
  • Eye Liner
  • Mascara
  • Lipstick

For a person who do not wears make up-the above list maybe an exhaustive list :P but for a person who loves make up-the list is very basic as it will create a fresh look yet sweet ;-).

To all my muslims friends - SELAMAT MENYAMBUT HARI RAYA AIDILADHA and Be Safe on the road!

Just to pre amp...I may not be blogging until end of this week but will try my level best to talk to all of you again ASAP-Take Care ALL and we'll talk soon....

Yup it's been a week since my last update-was busy with many agendas, work & family.

As I am writing - my body is still screaming for more rest :P. Just came back from a teambuilding that was held at PD-full of fun, laughter and it's HOT!

I was dehydrated as well, when you are busy with those activities tendency of NOT drinking at least 2 litre of liquid is possible. My lips was cracking but THANK YOU to my lip balm-it helps a alot!

I got this as a sample from my last visit to Bobbi Brown counter. I found it very useful and GOOD. (Time to purchase eh? Why NOT, if it's already proven good & effective :-)

(Write up from BB website)

Specially formulated with Wheat Germ and Olive Oil, this comfortable, non-greasy lip balm immediately goes to work comforting and protecting lips. Wear alone for natural look, with Lip Liner or Lip Gloss. Bobbi Brown Lip Balm SPF 15 comes in a sleek and portable polished silver tin.

Ok people I'm off to another hot and fun activities in another couple of days-this time with my beloved family. In life it is always about balance aite?-work, family all needs to be hand in hand :-)

The importance of supplements for your skin

Salam People....

Beauty not only lies on how expensive your skin care & cosmetics is also important to ensure that you have adequate food for the skin & body system a.k.a supplements.

Personally I'm a big fan of fish oil, Q10 & vitamin C. I'll ensure that I do not miss these 3 supplements daily as I do not practice good eating habit too :P (I just whacked any food, from fried food to spicy food and not forgetting junk food...hehehe). The difference I felt after religiously taking these 3 supplements were tremendous. I used to have a bad PMS (migraine, bodyache, mood swing & etc), feeling lethargic and lack of energy by the time I reach home from work. My skin looks dull and breakouts more often. With the help of these 3 supplements, minimal PMS effects and I feel much more energetic from previous. Again, it is individual-I am sharing base on my personal experience & always believe sharing is caring ;-)

Sharing the benefits of these 3 supplements in a nutshell (Info from google)

Fish Oil :

  • Reduce inflammation & pain
  • Cardiovascular Health
  • Protection from stroke and heart attack
  • Better brain function & intelligence
  • Less deepression
  • Reduction of breast, prostate & colon cancer

Q10 :

  • Weight loss-stimulates your body's metabolism
  • Healthy gums
  • Fertility
  • Cardiovascular
  • Immune system

Vitamin C

  • Healing - faster healing of wounds
  • Protection against UV rays
  • Cancer prevention benefit
  • Eyes-improves vision
  • Anti Oxidant
  • Diabetes-managing blood sugar level

Sorry peeps this entry without any picture...boring eh? But I do hope it benefits some of us :-)

I am honoured to have the opportunity to make up Radhiah on her big day at her husband's reception at Muar, Johor. 2 of her earlier receptions were professionally done by 2 professional make up artists-Saidatulnissa (Kak Sai for nikah) & Ayang Kamell (for bride's reception in KL).

Chatty and lovely bride she is- my thank you(s) to Radhiah & families for giving me the trust. Appreciate all the hospitality and the best nasi beriyani ever-Beriyani Johor! :D. My pleasure to work with you and many happy returns to you & Rezani. May death do both of you apart! Congratulations once again :-)

Face Polish-A MUST routine and item to have

Salam People,

I've found the best face scrub and recommended for combination to oily skin. It is gentle and your skin will feel supple and smooth immediately after the usage! Me just love it!

Yes my skin care it's a mixed and match of different brands as I believe the best is always something that you've tried on your face and experience the result yourself.

My personal skincare routine
  1. Bobbi Brown Cleansing Oil

  2. Laura Mercier Face Polish (I've used twice a week only)

  3. Bobbi Brown skin tonic

  4. Bobbi Brown hydrating gel

  5. Bobbi Brown Sunscreen (Only day time)

If you notice I have yet to use any eye cream or night cream-frankly I'm just lazy....hahahaha. Only cover the very basic and alhamdulillah my eye area have not shown any critical fine lines (few lines are normal aite...hehehehe). Perhaps I will consider to start using eye cream, next year? :P.

I feel sufficient with my skincare routine eventhough I'm a heavy make up user daily. Thanks to Bobbi Brown Cleansing Oil (you don't need to double cleanse either!).

OK here's the picture of Laura Mercier Face Polish (Oh! Ya...I love the smell too)

The benefits of face polish :

  • Removes dead skin cells leaving the skin smooth and toned
  • Offers therapeutic calming benefits
  • Acts as a gentle astringent
  • Rich in emollients that replace lost lipids and re-hydrates the skin
  • Suitable for all skin tones
  • Can be used daily for normal to oily

More sharing on beauty coming up....Stay tune and talk you again....Emmuuaaahhhs!
