My Double Eyelid - DST Journey | Clinic RX Bangsar

If you guys could recall that in the previous years I have shared about few posts with the title 'I did Plastic Surgery?' But it actually ended up with makeup transformation that gave a huge change on my overall look! Surprisingly, those postings were super welcoming!

Yes! This time IT IS FOR REAL! I did something to my eyelids! I went for my very first aesthetic procedure.
Finally, one of my last resolution for this year has been completed right before the year ends!

Many of you may question, don't I have double eyelids already? Yea, it does appear on every single pictures of mine, I have double eyelid but it is not the perfect one. I have imbalance eyelid where one of my eyes do not have folds. I have to put eyelid tapes or even using eye shadow to create that crease.
Uneven double eyelid
This is how both of my eyes look like before make up, the imbalance is obvious and my eyes actually have lots of folds in between.
Most of my makeup was completed with double eyelid stickers.

I have pondered for long to go for an eyelid surgery, not the cut one but the stitching one will do. I have waited and waited. I guess this is just the right time for me. I am one of those who really afraid of pain, you know the suffer and dilemma feeling in making such huge decision. It definitely require a lots of considerations, determination, as well as bravery. Too much to consider, what if it is a fail? What if I am allergic to the anesthesia/numb cream? What if it still turns out imbalance?
There was once a huge beat on my bravery during the moment that my eyes got really swollen after the application of numb cream. Instantly, my bravery was beaten. I wonder if I wasn't the right candidate for double eyelid? Is that a sign to be told that I should just give up this surgery? I am scared and I gave up.


Journey begins here...

Clinic RX
On 10th of August, I was given an opportunity again. I just braved myself again and I told myself if I am allergic to the numb cream again, that's the sign for me to give up. This is the one last chance.
 Yes! Here marks my journey of my double eyelid surgery (DST, Double Suture and Twisted Technique) with Clinic RX Bangsar.

I feel really comfortable being in the clinic, like my own house! It doesn't look like a clinic at all!  Spacious and hygienic environment, the doctors and staffs are super patience and friendly too!



Consultation
Dr. Vicky
After filling up some forms, I was brought into a room to have a consultation session with Doctor Vicky.
Consultation
OMG. Dr. Vicky is super nice and friendly. She patiently answered every single questions I asked and explained every single steps of the procedure.

For the very first move, Dr. Vicky helps to measure the crease height of my eyelid,
she asked about my ideal eyelid height and told me which was the best height for my eyes. Initially, I wanted to go for the 'same' height as I wanted to even up my eyes, just to ensure both were balance. Dr. Vicky told me that it would be better if I go slightly higher than my usual eyelid due to the nature of my job as a MUA, it is much visible after putting on eye makeup and in the few years later the crease might just slightly fall due to skin aging. Ended up I went for high crease and parallel eyelid.


What is DST?

Double Suture and Twisted Technique

The Procedure

As I have told Dr.Vicky about my last experience where I was allergic to certain numb cream, hence she asked beauty therapist to put a tiny amount of numb cream near my eyes area and see if there was any reaction after. 
Application of numb cream
Fortunately, nothing happened to me and the procedure carried on. 
First step, the beauty therapist has to applied numb cream on top of my eyes area, to ensure I don't feel pain during the marking process and injection.
Measure and Mark
The numb cream process took about 15 minutes, to ensure the numbness was fully penetrated.
15 minutes later, Dr. Vicky measured and did some marking on my eyelid. 
After marking, both of my eyelids were injected with local anesthesia from outside, as well as inside. The stitching process carried on.
After DST
About 25 minutes, the stitching process ended. Super fast, with zero pain! OMO 
The beauty therapist helped cleaning up the remaining chemicals and marked on my eyes.
Tadaaa ~ See how happy was I with my cheerful smile hehe!


Recovery Process
DST Recovery
Before & After DST

On day 1 (right after the surgery), it was absolutely normal that the eyes were swollen. 

I felt nothing at all after day 2. There were some bruises on my eyelids and I can felt that it slowly went off day by day.

On the second week, I went back to Clinic RX for post consultation. Doctor said my condition was good. I was told that as I have ezcema issues around my eyes area, my eyelids are quite sensitive and it took longer time to recover as compare to others. In short, the recovery process pretty much depends on personal skin condition and food consumption.

After a month, the condition of eyes were stable, the swollen has reduced by 90%.



Before & After

Before & After DST
Here's the before and after pictures of me.

QnA

Q1: Why do you insist to carry out DST procedure even after the failure in first attemption?
Throughout the years, right after I started to put on makeup, I was using double eyelid tape to disguise myself for non-stoppable days. It has been 8 years and I was tired with double eyelid tape. As an makeup artist, I hate uneven and imbalance eyelid. I just wanna look good even without makeup, with balance eyelid and I can do an much easier job in putting on eye shadow, as well as blending. During the first attempt, it did beat up my bravery towards DST, but then I believe the professionalism in Doctor Vicky from Clinix RX.

Q2: Do you feel any pain during or after the procedure?
Zero pain at all during the procedure and it was super fast. The whole procedure took about 25 minutes.

Q3: How do you feel after the DST procedure?
I feel so much confidence and comfortable with my eyes. I do a pretty good job well too, during eye shadow blending. Definitely no more eyelid tape in life.

Q4: Is there any downtime?
Only some bruises and swollen. But then it heals over time.

Q5: What shouldn't I eat after DST and how do I take care?
For 2 weeks, I stop consuming seafood, peanuts and eggs. I was given antibiotic and some painkillers to consume after the procedure. I was required to attend post consultation after 2 weeks. Personally, I think that the post consultation is important, as it gave a secure-ness / safety guarantee for me towards the procedure.

Q6: How long can the double eyelid last?
A life time, as it is permanent. This is why Clinix RX different from the others, unique technique and thread that can last as long as possible.

Skincare Update with WeCoMed x GIVEAWAY

What's next after the WeCoMed Magic Makeup Remover?
Sunscreen in spray, Magic Acne and Pigment Mask sheet, Magic Water mist and GIVEAWAY!
Here are some quick update on my current skincare routine with WeCoMed.


WeCoMed Sun Block SPF 30
WeCoMed Sun Block SPF30
We have heard about foundation in spray form yet this is the Sun Block Spray!

Packaging:
Sunscreen that comes in compact size which is superb travel friendly and the packaging color is so neon in orange, with minimal design, playing with typography and illustration.
Texture and Scent:
It comes in liquid form in slight light skin color, that gives a sheer thin finish, without any oiliness or stickiness. It also comes with a light fragrance scent, something sweet and floral.

Benefits:

  • Sun Protection SPF 30, protect our skin from sun damage
  • Can act as a makeup foundation or primer, even up skin tones
  • Moisturizing and firming, contain vitamins, anti-oxidant and some other active ingredients
  • Without clogging pores
Personally, I am amazed by its innovative technology. I love how it evens up my skin tone, while protecting my skin from sun damage. It works really well as a primer, that gives a light matte finish to my skin, without drying up my skin.

Yet, I don't really like how it messes up my hair, leaving my skin with some white powdery stain with the application. It's definitely a plus point if it comes out with few more shades for daily natural look, as in the picture, I look slight pale in the shade.

It is still a good choice for daily look, if you opt for something quick and minimal, with full sun protection yet less coverage.

Price & Size:
RM104 | 50ml


Magic Water Mist
WeCoMed Magic Water
This is just another item I keep in my office desk - Magic Water Mist, which I have blogged about earlier. Link here.

FYI, it is a multipurpose water mist, that can be used on your skin or body, anywhere! Even mouth and eyes. It helps to soothes and hydrates the skin, while doing some oil control action and reducing irritations . Besides, it helps to cure bad breathe as well as removing stinky scent from your armpit or genital area.

I love how it soothes my skin, especially in such an air conditioning area. Unlike the usual fragranced-mist, it comes with no fragrance, yet some light medicine aroma.

Price & Size:
RM128 | 210ml


Acne & Pigment Mask
Ido's Acne Mask & Pigment Mask
Here are the two cute little mask - Acne and Pigment Mask. I am just loving the packaging itself, clearly showing the skin condition with cute character illustration on!

Both mask are proven with paraben free! Safe to use.

Infused with holistic actives ingredients that helps combating acne prone and oily skin. It helps regulating sebum production, reducing bacteria colonization and fighting against free radicals, while rehydrate and sooth the skin.

Makeup Remover in SPRAY? | WeCoMed

Girls, have you guys ever countered a situation where wearing thick makeup and rocking the whole night, yet you feel extremely tired and exhausted to remove your makeup? You have no choice but drag yourself to the washroom, cleaning your makeup with cotton and remover part by part, step by step. Endless time and your sleepiness haunt you so so much. 
Here's the rescue for you - the WeCoMed Magic Makeup Remover, a remover in spray mist form. It is common to see makeup remover in gel, cream, liquid or even balm form. Yet, unlike the usual one, WeCoMed Magic Makeup remover is actually a gentle remover in spray mist form, that effectively remove all traces of makeup.

Packaging:
I love the packaging itself so so much. Everything in turquoise shade and minimal. Not much of huge fonts, not much of highlight, yet clearly convey its message of being Paraben Free.
Texture & Scent: 
It comes in the form of mist that end up with watery liquid finish, just like water. It doesn't come with any strong fragrance, yet some sort of medical scent which is bearable.

Application:
Shake well before use. 
Spray a generous amount of your faces or any part with makeup. Then, wipe off with cotton. To remove waterproof makeup on particular areas, like eyes or lips, you may just spray on the cotton and be hold the damped cotton on your eyes or lips.
This is a picture before and after removing makeup with WeCoMed Magic Makeup Remover. In a wipe, the brows, eye shadow and foundation are well cleansed yet waterproof eye liner and lip tint are partially cleansed only.

Personally, I love how quick it removes my makeup, in just a spray. The spray is gentle that doesn't cause any harshness on the skin and it gives a cooling sensation to my skin. It is good that it doesn't cause any stickiness or oiliness on my face, it leaves my skin soft and fresh. However, it doesn't impress me well on how effectively it removes all the makeup on my face. The mist of the face dries up pretty quickly and I have to go for second/ third spray.
It is indeed a good item to carry around for travel, but only works well on simple light makeup. Else you will need to double cleanse your face.


WeCoMed Magic Makeup Remover
Size                   : 60ml
Price                 : RM60
Effectiveness   : ★★★
Stickiness         : ★★
Oiliness            : ★☆☆☆☆

Melacca Day Trip and Cafe Hop

Ohhhh Maiiiii Gattt! In a blink, it's August and I am back with my Melacca Day trip posting!

Actually I have been to Melacca for more than 5 times during these 3 years? It is like a must visit place for me, for at least twice a year? I love jonker and I love the food there a lot a lot! Yeah, it is sort of annual trip with my Bf too lol.

But then, here's my very first record on my Melacca day trip in my blog that I wish to share with all of you, somehow like a refer if you have missed what I have missed during the past visit in Melacca, if you are not a google person like me.
Jonker88
I bet all of you will never miss this place - Jonker88大寶小食 because it is just located in Jonker Street. This shop is always full, it always has super long queue outside their shop and you will definitely be attracted to join the crowd!
Whenever I visit Melacca, I will never miss their curry laksa and chendol! Till recently, my Bf told me they actually serve the dish 'Kahwin' which never been listed in the menu. OMO. *surprise face like a gold digger* Am I the last person who knows this? You may just try 'Kahwin'!
How can I resist such tempting food?



Coffeetel Shack Melacca
After all, here's my very first visit to Coffeetel Cafe. Their signature black latte has been going viral all over my Facebook's wall and it successfully attracts me. *thumbs up*
I really love the overall setting in the cafe, so instagrammable! It's white, slight vintage for the overall interior theme. A great place to slack with friends.
black latte
Jang Jang! Here's the renown Black Latte. It actually comes in a blend of charcoal and latte, It tastes just fine, not too sweet nor milky nor bitter. Everything is just nice.
Of course I will never miss out any desserts -  CAKESsssssss! We girls always have another stomach to store desserts yay! These are the two cakes I picked - Matcha Red Bean and Signature Lamington Cake. Both tasted great! Finally I found cakes that aren't too sweet LOL. They didn't even cause any greasy feeling behind. 
Oh ya! For girls, you may be looking 'poisoned' after drinking the black latte lol. It somehow stains your lips and teeth.
Restaurant Lee Swee Meng 李瑞明古早味
I am so sad that I missed this restaurant during my past visit, how can?? Taadaa ~ it's Restaurant Lee Swee Meng 李瑞明古早味, a restaurant that's renown of their clay pot dishes. All the food is served in the clay pots.
Of course, they have super loooooooong queue too. We have actually waited for 1 and half hour. Please be early!
We ordered the clay pot curry, which is one of my favorite dishes. Just by looking in the picture, you know how good it tastes haha! The curry is thick, flavored and it is not spicy at all. It is just perfect to go with the rice and you just want moreeeee rice.
Another favorite dishes will be this claypot tofu mushroom. I love the wild freshness in the Mushroom, super juicy! This dishes serve with Shao Xing Wine as the wine scent is quite strong, it smells super nice. 
We ordered some vegetables too. Here come the claypot sweet potato leaves. It just perfectly cooked with the a hint of 'claypot taste and scent', keeping the overall fresh and sweetness of the dishes. 

Do take note that all the dishes come in generous big portion and they are in super reasonable price.
That's all of my Melacca day trip sharing! Let me know if you have missed anything that I have listed down here or you may let me know what I missed too!
Enjoy exploring more places in Melacca. I just love this city and I will do more adventure there haha!
