Mamonde Moisture Ceramide Light Cream

Hey guys!
For your information, I am an absolute fans of Mamonde, not only trying out products they deliver but I do purchase some products on my own. I sincerely feel that their products are really good and all the skincare range use flowers as key ingredients!

Today, we gonna talk about Hibiscus flower - our national flower. Do you know that Hibiscus flower can be consumed as tea? It brings a lot of health benefits that it helps lowering blood pressure and body BMI, reducing bad cholesterol.
Apart from the health benefits, Hibiscus flower is known as 'Botox Plant' too. It helps exfoliating, firming, lifting and moisturizing the skin.
Mamonde Moisture Ceramide Light Cream
In the Advanced Moisture Ceramide range, Mamonde has utilizes the benefits of Hibiscus flower, combines Hibiscus CeramidePlus, that provides utmost hydration to the skin while strengthening the skin's barrier, protecting skin againts external harmful factors like UV and pollutants.
In this post, I will be trying out the Moisture Ceramide Light Cream. 
Texture and Scent:
The texture is pretty light in white cream form. It is super easy to spread out on the skin and absorb into the skin within seconds. It comes with a light, refreshing citrus scent, a little floral aroma.
I am quite surprise that the cream penetrates into the skin super fast during the application. It doesn't leave any sticky or greasy feeling on the skin, but a skin-light coating on the skin, which is moisture and hydrated. It like how it feels on the skin, super light, leaving my skin soft, moist, with little touch of healthy glow.
This Moisture Ceramide Light Cream is just a perfect item for those who doesn't love heavy and intense cream, but a quick fix moisturizer. It is so lightweight and it does a good job in daily hydration.

The Mamonde Moisture Ceramide range is available in all Mamonde counter.

Cutera Laser Treatment | The Suisse Clinic

If you guys have been following me on Instagram (@immateapot), you may know that I have been visiting The Suisse Clinic frequently for Cutera Laser treatment.

I have never been to a laser treatment till The Suisse Clinic approached me few months back. Previously, I have that mindset that laser treatments may thin the skin layer, making it more sensitive and vulnerable to the sun. There will be skin peeling off and some redness. Yet, The Suisse Clinic has totally changed my mindset towards laser treatment with its signature Cutera Laser Treatment for Skin Rejuvenation.

The Suisse Clinic
Before  getting into  the treatment, lets walk through The Suisse Clinic with me.
The Suisse Clinic is located at Northpoint, Mid Valley City (cross the linking bridge and towards your left). Skip the busy traffic or hassle parking, you may park your car at Northpoint as there are reserved parking for The Suisse Clinic's patients.
The Suisse Clinic
It's super easy to spot the clinic as it is just on your right hand side after crossing the linking bridge.



I love how cozy and spacious the overall interior is. There are a lot of seats around, your friends who wait for you may have a seat.
*My boyfriend always wait for me in the clinic haha!*



Here's a tiny corner for skin scan and analysis.

About Cutera Laser
Cutera laser, is also known as the 'lunch time procedure', as it just required your lunch time duration, about 30 minutes. It is fast and it doesn't cause any side effects e.g. skin peeling and redness. It also has no downtime like the others laser treatments elsewhere.

Cutera laser is a procedure that utilizes safe wavelength that gently heats the upper dermis of the skin, stimulating the regrowth and regeneration of collagen.

Benefits of Cutera Laser:
  • Treats fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improves overall skin texture
  • Lightens scar marks and pigmentation
  • Reduces skin inflammation and sensitivity
  • Brightens and evens up skin tone
  • No down time
Price: RM800/per session


Procedure
The procedure is very easy. During your first visit, you will be asked to fill out a form with some questions to understand more about your skin concerns and condition etc.
Skin Analysis
After filling up the form, you will undergo a computed skin analysis in order to understand your skin condition further.
Consultation
Soon after, a professional consultation was given by an experienced doctor. I was told by Dr. Celine Tey that my skin is in dehydrated, my skin pores were also large and clogged, with lots of blackheads/whiteheads. My skin is also rather sensitive and often appears to be red.
Cleansing
After the consultaton, I was brought to a room to have my face cleansed before the laser treatment.
Cutera Laser
Cutera Laser started right after the face cleansing procedure. Throughout the treatment, I did not feel any discomfort, no heat, no pain, just some slight bearable tingling feelings. And, the overall treatment took less than an hour.
After the laser, there was a post-treatment care procedure given, a post later hydration and soothing mask was applied on to my skin.. The mask was pretty cooling and soothing. It helped to calm and soothe my skin after the laser, while restoring skin moisture.

Before & After
Here's a picture before and after the treatment.
Few months back before the treatment, I can feel my skin is rather rough and dull, and my skin pores were huge. Yet, after 3 sessions of The Suisse Clinic's Cutera Laser Treatment, I can feel my skin had slowly become livelier! It became much brighter and my skin texture had improved. My skin feels much firmer! I saw significant changes after each session.

The doctor advised patients to undergo the Cutera Laser according to individual skin's condition and needs. About once every 3 to 4 weeks to witness more drastic improvements. I took about 5 months to complete my 3 sessions due to my hectic schedule. The improvements on my skin was gradual.

It is utmost important to ensure post treatment care is practiced. It is a must to ensure moisture and hydration is fed to skin through post laser treatment masks. If possible, put one mask a day for 2 weeks for more enhanced results.

My Hair Loss Saver | THE FACE SHOP

Due to the changes in our lifestyle and diet, a lot of us has been suffering from hair loss issues. Other than over-styling, there are few more reasons that may cause hair loss: physical and emotional stress, lack of protein and vitamins, as well as aging. 

I used to opt for nourishing hair product, but then after a year of usage, there starts the excessive oil production on my hair that lead to minor hair fall condition. I started to opt for hair fall control products and I am glad that I found DR. SCHWARZ range from THE FACE SHOP, helping me to achieve voluminous and healthy hair.
Yes! A hair loss care range products discovered by THE FACE SHOP - DR. SCHWARZ, formulated with natural ingredients that helps restoring healthy hair with safe and ultra nourishing formulation. It is a line created for those who has been suffering from hair loss, as well as seeking for natural scalp care products.

FREE FROM silicone, parabens and sulfate surfactants.

What are the FIVE amazing natural ingredients?
  • Polygonum, a traditional medicinal herb that serves to cure eczema and helps nourishing the hair
  • Phelliuns Linteus, a type of mushroom that comes with antioxidant properties and care for hair loss
  • Houttuynia Cordata, helps strengthen hair roots and promote hair growth
  • Dark Vinegar, rich in nutrients that protect hair scalp
  • Mint, helps to balance the oil production on hair, while stimulate hair follicles to promote hair growth


Dr.Schwarz Shampoo for thinning hair
DR. SCHWARZ Shampoo for thinning hair, a shampoo that strengthen the hair roots while adding some volume to the hair.
I was quite surprised during my very first usage on this Thinning Shampoo, the texture is so different from what I have been using. It turns from clear gel to white foam after contacting with water. It foams well on cleansed hair that washes daily but not really on oily hair like mine, especially when I tend to wash my hair like once on alternate day. It needs a few more pumps than usual. 
Texture and scent:
Unlike the usual hair product I have used, the texture is much dilute in clear liquid form, accompanied by a refreshing floral scent.



Dr.Schwarz Scalp Serum
After shampooing and conditioning my hair, I apply DR. SCHWARZ Scalp Serum that helps to soothe and relieve various scalp concerns by delivering necessary nutrients and minerals.
Texture and Scent:
It comes in a clear slight orange-ish liquid texture, company with a soothing floral aroma, light-scented.
The application is super easy, spray an adequate amount of serum on scalp and massage gently.




Before & After
Here's a picture for BEFORE. Excuse me on my bared face LOL.
As seen in the picture (it is my second day for not getting a hair wash), my hair is pretty oily on the scalp area and frizzy at the end. It is dry and rough like grass.
Here's a picture for After: Seee! Look so different LOL. Hair plays a big role!

I was quite surprised that the shampoo does an amazing job on my hair! I love the refreshing floral scent on my hair, that I can simply flip it. My hair turns out smooth and 'nourished', superb sleeeeeek! I have lesser hair falls during the wash. Perhaps it works well after a long term usage. Can't wait!

As I said, I wash my hair like once alternate day. Usually, my hair tends to get a little oily a day after the hair wash (Day 2), especially when I wake up, just on the top part. Yet, this shampoo is good enough to help on that, it doesn't turn out super oily the next morning, but oily on the third day, where I plan to get a hair wash. Overall, I am quite satisfy with this range as it really impresses me well.

All in ONE ToothFoam | Return Legacy O'Dentee

If you guys have been following me on Instagram, you may know that I am currently into an All-in-One toothfoam - O'Dentee from Return Legacy. 

Return Legacy O'DENTEE
Yes a toothfoam! I guess toothfoam is rather a strange name for all of you. In our daily life, we have come across tooth brush, tooth paste, tooth pick and etc, but hey, what is that toothfoam? In this post, I will be sharing this toothfoam in details with all of you, telling you how amazing this toothfoam is!
O'Dentee, has totally changed my mind on the conventional toothpaste. It is a revolution, an All-in-One toothpaste, mouthwash and mouth refresher that will definitely bring the most convenience in our daily life. 

O'Dentee is crafted meticulously with the finest and quality ingredients, which is the proprietary blend of natural plant extracts, namely Lynenox (including sugar beet, licorice and perilla seed), that serves best in antibacterial properties.

O'Dentee helps to
  • clean and strengthen our teeth/ gum 
  • relieves bad breath (which is best to use right before you meet clients or going for an interview)
  • break down tooth stains (which is best for coffee and tea lover)
  • reduce oral bacteria and protect our oral from diseases/ infections
As seen in the picture, O'Dentee comes in slight dilute liquid and white foamy texture, unlike the ordinary creamy toothpaste or liquify mouthwash.

It comes in 2 flavors,  green as Mint and orange as Lemon Salt.
I prefer mint over lemon salt flavor as it is much intense in taste and scent. It leaves my mouth with a refreshing minty scent, accompanied by a slight spiciness aftertaste. Whereas, for lemon salty flavor, it is less intense, not spicy yet it leaves my mouth with some salty aftertaste, accompanied by slight lemon scent.
Direction to use:
Dispense 4 to 5 pumps of O'Dentee into your mouth.
Swirl it in your mouth for 15 seconds and spit out / OR / you may use it with a toothbrush.

Easy peezy!

Price & Size:
RM33 (WM) RM36 (EM) | 50ml
That's all about the amazing creation - Return Legacy O'Dentee. I guess it brings a little fun into our routine oral care life LOL. No more excuse for you to skip brushing teeth! This is just the perfect item for those with braces, city dwellers who lives a hectic life, travelers, smokers and coffee/ tea lovers. 

What I love about O'Dentee:
Personally I love how compact in size of the tooth foam is, which is so easy and convenient to be carry around. I can simply tuck in my handbag and carry it all around with me. I will definitely bring it along whenever I travel.
The compact size wise, I love the easy application (as it just needed to be pump into the mouth) that will never mess up my clothes (like the running fluid that flow all the way down). 
As mentioned earlier, I love the minty one so much. It comes with an aftertaste of minty feeling, that i can instantly feel that my oral has been well cleansed. I feel fresh and clean.

Performing oral has never been this easier with O'Dentee!

Current Favorite Beauty Products | THE FACE SHOP

Ola people! How was your Chinese New Year break?
In this post, I will be sharing some of my favorite beauty products from THE FACE SHOP. This is my very first time receiving products from THE FACE SHOP and they are just in time for this Chinese New Year! Chinese New Year is not at all about dressing up nicely but also bright radiance skin complexion and ong ong lips!
So, what's in the box? Anti-darkening Cushion and 6 shades from the Flat Lipstick range (4 velvet and 2 glossy). Those lipstick shades just enough for me to use alternatively from the 30th night till Chor 5 LOL.



Anti-Darkening Cushion

THE FACE SHOP Anti Darkening Cushion
With no doubt, I am all down for the packaging. White-pink stripes, with an embossed silver logo at the center, simply girly yet gives a tiny hint of boudoir sensation. Somehow like awakening the soul of a sweet teenage girl within the body of a young lady.

The Anti-Darkening Cushion
  • comes with sun protection at SPF50+ PA+++
  • helps reducing the appearance of aging signs (wrinkles, fine lines)
  • helps brightening the skin and even up the skin tone naturally
  • helps concealing the imperfections on the skin
Like the usual cushion, the texture is pretty much like the foundation company by a refreshing floral scent.
Upon the application, with only a pump with the sponge, it is good enough to cover the half face. 
Unlike the usual cushion that gives a slight white cast on the skin, I love how the foundation blends into my skin tone, it is so much natural, leaving my skin in a velvet finish yet with some moisture within. 
With the comparison above, I am surprised that the coverage of the foundation is amazing, in only one time of application,09 with no build up needed on the dark circle area. My skin turns out smoother and brighter. Absolutely flawless!

As the foundation is quite moisture, it turns out slight oily after long hours. Hence, primer is important to do the sebum-control job or you may just dab away the excess oil with tissue. 
It is now my all time favorite foundation!



Flat Lipstick

THE FACE SHOP Flat Lipstick
Here comes my favorite part - Flat Lipstick in Velvet and Glossy range.
I guess you see how unique the tip is, it is in flat tube shape! It is claimed to provide a define finish on the lips, preventing colors from feathering or bleeding upon application. I am starting to love the flat tube shape as it is pretty easy to draw on the cupid bow, extending to the outer corner of the lips.
The packaging itself is pretty minimal, in classic black tube and a colored cap that helps differentiating each shades and range. Hence, for velvet lipstick, the cap is matte texture whereas for glossy lipstick, the cap is in gloss finish.

What's in the flat lipstick range?
They consists of 5 types of natural oil (Argan Oil, Rosehip Oil, Jojoba Oil, Olive Oil & Calendula Oil) for perfect moisturization and trouble relief, in order to helps soothing the lips, preventing it from cracking.
Here are the swatches on the 6 lipsticks that I received earlier. From top, top 4 shades from the velvet range and the botton 2 shades from glossy range.
Personally, I love the velvet range over glossy range. I love how intense the color is, I love the pigmentation, as well as the powdery matte finish. It is smooth on the lips, with no stickiness, it doesn't dry up the lips and super easy to glide on the lips. It is not at all transfer proof yet it does a good job on the longevity, just slight fade off near the inner lips part after meal.

In terms of the glossy range, I love the shade Cassis Red. The color appear to be more vivid as compare to the Orange Punch shade. The Orange punch is way sheer on first application, it need more build up to get the intense finish. I am still a fans of this range, as it gives a shiny finish on my lips! More dimensional and juicy!

If you are a fans of K-pop and wanna create some gradient lips, velvet range is a good choice to go for. Whereas glossy range is good for a bold full lips. Depends on your occasions, you may just opt for shades in glossy range or velvet range, as they are just good enough to fit in your bag on-the-go!
