Cellinique Intensive Hydro Repair Biological Masque

My sister has been nagging me about taking good care about my skin. She has been obsessed with skincare since a very young age, and of course, evidently, you can witness her clear and well maintained skin at the age of 28.
I notice too, that my skin looks dull and lots of pimples popped out, however, paying exorbitant price for an intense facial session is a big no-no from me, as I am still a student, I have been on a look out for good facial mask that would give me instant result.

Having said that, I was ardently surprise to receive this Cellnique intensive hydro repair biological masque to try. Thank you so much for giving me this opportunity to try out the mask, and also coming at a right time when I needed a good and affordable mask to salvage my face.

I must say I am pretty impressed by the attention to details Cellnique put into making sure the product reaches me in good condition. It arrived in properly bubble wrapped package, as seen in below.


The box has a very luxurious feeling to it, and it is really of another standard compared to all the other masks I have tried before.


These are the individual masks I have emptied out from the box. I totally love the design of the package. No fancy looking cartoons or whatsoever. Instead, you can find very professional looking package inside.


Before i go into more detailed reviews on whether the mask work wonders on my complexion, let me just give a brief introduction on the cellnique intensive hydro repair biological masque.

Product Size: 25g (5 pcs paper masque)
Normal Price: MYR 169.00
Product Description:
This hydrating and soothing biological masque slips on luxuriously to bring concentrated essence and hydrating benefits to overstressed and dehydrated the skin. It contains a unique formulation of Hyaluronic Acid, Hydrergy and Syn-Hycan that helps skin achieve maximum hydration and revitalizes the complexion, while Faex and Snail Mucin provide immediate comfort by cooling, calming and restoring the skin, skin emerges infinitely regenerated.
Benefits:
·         Immediate comfort
·         Cooling , calming and restoring the skin
·         Skin emerges infinitely regenerated
·         Help skin achieve maximum hydration and revitalizes the complexion



Ok readers, please be prepared to see my naked face. Horrendous pimples are popping everywhere. Look at my forehead. Oily skin means good place to breed pimples. :-(
Its dull looking, oily and unattractive.



My first thought upon opening the mask, is the texture. Its very soft and moist. The entire mask was soak in very thick layer of serum/ essence. It really feels very luxurious just by touching and holding the mask. I was so excited. I knew this would be the miracle I have been looking for that would give me the instant glow and also help repair my dehydrated dull skin.



See just how unbelievably moist the mask is, it adheres so well to my face, I can walk around and not fear it dropping. I love the fragrance too. The silky and comforting feeling I get from slapping on this mask on my face makes me wana do mask everyday. I have found THE one definite love.



LOOK! Glowing looking skin. Pimples were visibly soothened, and reduced in sizes. My skin was soooo hydrated. Its like I can literally do the toink-toink action, and totally see my skin bouncing.


This is the compilation of my before and after. See for yourself the instant difference and wonders it did to my complexion. Are you convinced now, that this is indeed a must-have?


Luckily for these masks, I brought them along to Langkawi and did the mask before attending beach wedding with my dearest sister. I was not afraid of the scorching sun, swimming in chlorine water, or beach water. Because I am very confident the mask will be able to repair my skin, just as suggested by the name of the mask. Amazing product, totally worth a try.


So, i'm pretty happy with the result so far :)

Short update


I've been really busy
i'm so so sorry! even though semester break suppose to be some sort of resting weeks for me, but no! i am NEVER free

okay so i have 3 reviews pending (gosh! really really damn sorry to my sponsors, but they given me a dateline, i think i am still in time to post)

2 batches of goods to dispatch and pack for my online shop
(i am prone to get panic at small stuff, so ya, if i delay even 1 day to ship out my customers' goods, i will blame myself for being irresponsible, so yes, i am very kin cheong that type, so everything must be punctual and perfect)

so actually i have only two things to do 
: my BLOG and my SHOP

which doesn't sum up to a pretty hectic life right?
but i tell you, time DOES pass very fast,
i've been busy with my shop things lately (CNY is coming, orders rushing like mad, like pasar malam)

and okay, i admit, i still have to time to go travelling. 
but i realize, 
vacation is not at all relaxing, in fact all those unpacking packing process can kill you
not only that, you have to drive here drive there, 
think of food, keep keluar duit, keluar energy 
=.=
so okay, unless i just go on a trip where i don't have to bother about this, i guess i'm pretty comfortable sitting at home playing pokemon 
wahaha

so okay, here's one last VAIN pic for this post
ain't no time!
ain't no time! i wish i can buy time, but nooo i can't
and yessss Dan told me that he is going swimming once every two day and i'm determine to get my swimming body after sem break (which is a pretty hard resolution seeing that cny is near and you have all those good food waiting for you)

i'm not a lazy blogger, i just had NO TIME
~currently won't accept any product review unless it has something to do with Valentine's Day~ wahahaha

This is one of my FAVORITE of all 
first, it flaunts the beautiful waistline of yours, 
and with that touch of lace at the top, it just makes a plain dress looks sophisticated . 
This dress is on the top of  my list right now, i am hoping i have the height to wear it off :D haha

nothing could go wrong with a strapless maxi elegant gown that is pastel blue in color
Dresswe had again , successfully impress me on their wonderful and exquisite design 


how about those with legs to kill? in my country where it's hot and humid, i think people are longing for dresses above the knee. I find this dress kind of special because of the top part, it's not like any other plain design. 

okay, i got to admit that i am a sucker for BLUE
they say blue suits my skin color, and blue never goes wrong in any occasion . 
i like this dress because not only it's in an appropriate length, it looks elegant too at the hemline
Dresswe are selling all these in a very low price (free shipping for orders above 169 USD)

not only that, they are selling SHOES too. 

big love for this!
Every girl's weakness when it comes to any wedding occasion 
i am deeply impressed with this shoe offered in Dresswe.com 
it looks really pretty isn't it?

but this is my favorite of all if i were to be a bridesmaid. 
i love that strap around the ankle because that strap can lengthen ur legs
i have been observing people legs while they are wearing this kind of shoes haha

Beauty Talk 3D Refining Day Cream review

today i'll be reviewing on Beauty Talk 3D Refining Day Cream from Hishop
which is Rm143.65
this is my first day cream ever (i never use day cream, just night cream and maybe because the populated BB and CC cream has took over the role as a day cream, people just thought it's okay to never use any day cream)
but you have to check up why it's benefiting to use day cream seeing that it is not harmful for skin if you over use it too much

well, Beauty Talk 3D refining Day cream has all the benefits we, girls, would love to have. And seeing that it has so many awards given to this wonderful product, it's a MUST have product to check it out ourselves. 
  • UV, antioxidant protection
  • Good make up base
  • Anti-aging ingredients
  • smoothen lines
  • Whitening
  • and Moisturizing our skin
Besides that, it has Various vitamins, whitening and moisturizing properties are added to delay the skin aging process, restrict melanin formation and increase the skin’s ability to guard itself against the sun’s damaging rays. On top of that, its 3D technology attracts external light into the dermis layer of the skin, coupled with natural pearl powder, to enhance your skin's smoothness and radiance.

What's behind the box:
1. Smoothes Fine Lines ( i do not have so i don't know how's the result for it)
2.Multi-whitening actions (yes, i was sun burnt before, and i can see i'm getting brighter)
3. Soothes and Repairs (their texture is not really thick, in fact after applying it is quite soothing)
4. Enhance Moisturizing effect (yup, not dehydrating your skin)
5. Improved 3D complexion (no more loose powder :D)

Ingredients: 
Vitamin E: Prevents oxidation to the outer skin layer, moisturizes and guards it from sun-damage, leaving it soft and hydrated.
Acetyl Hexapeptide-3: Smoothen fine lines, provides deep hydration to improve and firm skin texture.
Acetyl hexapeptide-8 (Argireline): Reduce wrinkles associated with facial expressions.
Hydrolyzed Soy Protein: Helps bring back youthful radiance in skin care.
Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein: Excellent tensor & film-forming properties to increase firmness of the skin.
Natural Pearl Powder (mica): Provides fine, porcelain complexion and smoothness to the skin even without make-up. This powder offers your skin a natural glow.
Acerola Fruit: Enriched with Vitamin C to combat melanin production, reduce the deposition of pigmentation and age spots and provide multiple protections from harmful UV rays.
Iris Florentina Root Extract: Revitalizing anti-aging ingredient that is rich in natural isoflavones to reduce the depth of wrinkles, improve skin hydration and elasticity for an overall improvement in skin tone.
Chamomilla Recutita Flower Extract: Soothes skin redness and irritation, it also eliminates itchiness and reduces skin inflammation. It also helps to prevent bacterial infection.
Sodium Hyaluronate: Rehydrates skin to stave off dryness and tightness, prepping it adequately for treatment products.

Let me show you the texture via my hand
looks thick right?
but then when you apply, you can't even feel if it's thick or oily, or sticky. It feels like your second skin. 
No scent (: so don't worry if you're sensitive to scent . 

After applying 
:D
can you see the GLOOOOWWWW
their 3D effect DOES work :D

my badly burnt face
seriously i have no idea why i become so dark after entering uni
maybe because of the sun (the scorching sun and most of my class had lunch break during 12 which is where the sun peaks the most) 
my sis kept saying that "what happen to yoU! your skin so dull! omygawd!"
i was abit sad lah, hey i wasn't that dark before 
and ya, i keep sleeping late around 2-3 a.m due to assignment, online, blog, shop, bla bla..
haiz
so my skin in such a terrible condition , and i hoping this cream will cover my flaws up during daytime and improve it in the time being

so this is the contrast after applying. 
can see my skin is smoother than before, and i think the skin tone improved, but this is the first time i used it, so maybe you can't see the BIG difference in it yet, but hey!
wait till you see my final picture below after 1 week of using :D


Tadaa!
like literally back to my old skin!
haha
and yes i'm still wearing it whenever i go out because i am still afraid of the sun 
and since this cream protects my skin from UV ray, it is highly important i use it everyday
no edits :D trust me, if i'm going to edit, i will edit my fat legs too hahaha

GET 15% off for any purchase in HISHOP with the code : ANNTAN

Sheinside low scoop maxi dress review


Hello! it's been a long time since i review on any fashion website , and  yes i am writing this post during my finale exam haha
but guess what? seeing that i'm here studying in a school where i can't wear anything above the knee and everything must have sleeve, i decided to pick one of Sheinside's Maxi dress that comes together with a belt
yes, the dress has a belt holder too so you don't have to worry it slipping down halfway when you started walking

decided to pair with my favorite pair of boots :D
by the  way even though Sheinside is located oversea (yes and you may think it's a pain to wait for something so long for it to deliver to you) but no way!
i got this dress within 2 weeks and i am very please at their express shipping system
i think it takes only 5-15 days for it to shipped to your house
and guess what? 
Standard shipping fee is FREEEEE
:D

by the way the dress is quite long for me , but nevermind i just have to blame myself for being too short okay? but if you pair it with a higher heel shoes, it'll be just like your ordinary maxi dress
This dress is quite fit in shape (like if you have an hourglass figure, this dress can show off your curves)

and i try to show off my "hourglass" figure haha
but i really like the waist there where the cinch of the belt really emphasize your waistline 
if you're a bit plumper this is good because a higher waist line with a cinch of belt make you look slimmer


and this is how the model looks like in Sheinside
i can tell this dress is abit loose on her but it fits me like it was meant for me (well despite the length that is still too long for me, but i'm going to the tailor to alter it and it'll be the perfect uni outfit )

get this maxi dress here :D


and thank you Sheinside :www.sheinside.com
for the wonderful dress

Make Up Revolution Malaysia review


Finally get to blog about a review after constantly updating about my uni life. haha
so anyway, today i'll be reviewing on Make Up Revolution Malaysia , which was launched in London in March 2014. And do you know how much is their price range for their make up products? 
it starts from Rm8 only for one lipstick (that's VERY affordable) and yes they provide all the make up products you can name of for your face, for your eyes, for your lips, for your brows and even though is based in London, it's provides range for all skin tone . 

The parcel were delivered just in time for my wedding dinner. i didn't know they will be giving me palettes too! wait till you see the picture below. 

no kidding right? the colors are just right for my liking. This is Make Up Revolution Iconic Palette 1 - Rm32 (so affordable, and let me tell you this it's quite the same as Naked Palette which cost even more)
they have three different iconic palettes for you to choose from 
you can see more here: 


testing testing
sorry i'm too dark you can't see much of the colors, but it's really very striking. 
i have yet to try on all colors of the palettes for my eyes, but i'll do it next post.


This will be my favorite of all the products. This is their focus and Fix brow Kit which is only rm19 (yet look very expensive right?) 
and they came together with eyebrow gel (all the more convenient for me) and a tiny tweezer . 
omygawd, i love this set so much, they even had a mirror there haha
it's like a 4-in-one combo altogether (wait til you see my finishing look below)

Next is their Power duo red lipstick lipgloss.
they have two ends, YES, one end is their lipgloss while the other end is this striking red lipstick . This is only rm24. At first i thought it was only the gloss, then as i pulled the other end, i was very surprised , out came another lipstick 
and it's my favorite shade ( i do not like dark color lipstick)


The other end is the lipgloss. The best thing of the lipgloss is that it has this shinny little thing that makes your lips glow. Imagine wearing it at night, and all that's glimmering in the dark is your sexy pout lips

so i tried it, blending it with the lipstick too
it gives that watery feeling on the lips which adds more subtle feel to soften up your lips
nobody like dry chapped lips right?
Check out their duo lipstick lipgloss range here






And then there is another type of lipstick they call it Make Up Revolution Amazing Lipstick (bliss)
this is pink (a bit doubtful to try this because pink does not suit my skin tone, will review on this next post together with their palette)

Tried all three lips product on my hand
I STIIILL love the duo lipstick lipgloss sooo much
and did i mention they have a quite fruity scent(is that the scent? i'm not really sure what scent is that) it smells nice not like some lipsticks which is made heavily with chemicals, you just can't stand the smell of it even if you applied it. 


incoming their Awesome Double Flick Thick and Thin eyeliner
(yes, their product range is named "Awesome")
what is better than one eyeliner? is having TWO at one end, 
just imagine you just need to bring one eyeliner to create thick and thin lines on your eye

thin line at the end of my eye (using thin eyeliner (liquid))
color intensity ? 5/5
does it smudge? Nooo, it became one of my MUST bring eyeliners to uni now haha
i must say it is quite waterproof there is no complaint in this


Then i tried their thick eyeliner which is quite thick, it smudges a bit after that, so i stick with the thin eyeliner . 

My sister also had a go on the eyeliner
can see that the color intensity is REAALY dark, suitable for those who wanted the heavy look :D
and oh yessh she is wearing the duo Lipstick lipgloss too 
see how smoking hot her lips is haha






and this is the finishing look after using Make Up revolution:
1.Duo Lipstick lipgloss
2. Focus and fix brow Kit (fallen in love with this, i will buy a new set for myself after i'm done with this set)
3.Double Flick thin eyeliner

I tried to have a go on their palette (using their dark blue shades) to create somewhat a depth at the end of eyeline. 
okay, maybe i still need a little bit of practice on using it haha




Yes i really love Make up revolution seeing that the price is also affordable, what is there to complain when i have tried it and it's quite good :D
somehow i am very interested in their I HEART makeup line which has cuter and girlish packaging (gosh, you know i'm a big fan of blushers and this just rings at the right time)


If you're still in doubt of Make up revolution's ingredient (yes some might say  some products make up ingredients cannot be trusted, blah blah blah)
they have listed one by one down on their website to rest assure some of the customers :)
