Ink Lasting Foundation | THE FACE SHOP

Have you ever wondered how K-pop stars are always looking perfect in front of the camera? Flawless smooth skin, with enviable healthy glow.
THE FACE SHOP Ink Lasting Foundation
Oh hey! I found their secret weapon - THE FACE SHOP Ink Lasting Foundation and I am here to share with y'all!
The Ink Lasting Foundation Slim Fit is actually a foundation designed to hide your skin imperfections, while enhancing the skin radiance, giving it a lightweight finish. It is just like your second skin, weightless and natural!

The main highlights for this range are:
  • Round-the-clock moisture - Biosaccharide Gum-1 provides instant and lasting moisture to our skin throughout the day. 
  • Light-fitting formula - Flat Cover Pigment provides skin-fit effect, giving our skin a feather light finish, with natural coverage. Air Pore Powder plays a big role in sebum control, preventing excessive shine and oil on the skin.

For convenience causes, the Ink Lasting Foundation range has come out with both bottle and compact form foundation, that is ideal for you to carry around.


Ink Lasting Foundation Slim Fit
The award winning foundation, scoring 4.8/5 from the Korean beauty specialists - Ink Lasting Foundation Slim Fit.
Texture and scent:
The texture is pretty thick, I found it takes quite a long time to blend evenly on the skin. Hence, a few drops are good enough for the whole face. After blending out, it is obvious to see that the overall texture is in a high definition finish, with moisture and shine that helps enhancing skin dimension. Moreover, it comes in a light floral scent, something like the usual scent of bb cushion.
This is a picture before and after the foundation application. I bet all of you see the significant difference.
Before application, my skin texture is rather rough, there is a lot of acne marks and blemishes around the cheek. I have severe uneven skin tone and dark circle.

After application, my skin tone is even up and overall look so much define with the radiant glow. The coverage is good enough in covering up my acne marks and blemishes, a few more layers needed to fully cover up the dark circle. My skin texture is much smoother and pores are rather blur out.
This is how it looks after 6 hours. My skin is pretty oily around the T-zone, yet it's good to blot away with tissues. I am surprise that overall still looks good, without any cracks or cakiness around dry areas. Impressive!


Ink Lasting Foundation Slim Fit To Go
THE FACE SHOP Ink Lasting Foundation To Go
For busy lady who is always in rush, you may just opt for The INK Lasting Foundation Slim Fit To Go, a convenient on-the-go compact that allows you to touch up, anytime anywhere.
It comes with a contactless pump, that helps preventing bacterial contamination. The Rubycell puff gives you an airbrush and poreless finish!
I will definitely have this in my bag during travel! Life-saver - compact foundation!


My thoughts
I love how the Ink Lasting Foundation works on my skin and it has now become my favorite foundation. For long hour test, I used it during my cousin's wedding last Saturday, from 3am early in the morning till 5pm, running from one venue to another, dressing up the bride, doing her makeup and all. The foundation was just so surprisingly amazing! It stayed throughout the day, without the need of touching up, just some blotting action to blot away the facial oil. It doesn't crack much even though my skin is super dry.

Some tips for y'all, you may just wet your puff with face mist during the application of foundation, it will fit into the skin better and more adherence.

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.

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.
