For healthy & Clear Looking skin - THE FACE SHOP Yehwadam Plum Flower Revitalizing Line

Just for your information, I was struggling with my skin's problem last year, back and forth visiting skin doctors, even consuming Roaccutane. I guess, hormonal issues, there were a lot of bumps (or white heads) on my cheeks and kept on growing, that made up like a 'moon's surface'. Super rough skin texture and I don't feel good at all. Not confidence with my bared skin, even with make up, it made it worst.  

I am so glad now after a year, I'm finally back to my normal skincare routine. And, here's an amazing skincare line that I've recently switched to - THE FACE SHOP Yehwadam Plum Flower Revitalizing Line.

For the very first impression, when I heard about plum flower, I was like "OMG, a must try!" As plum flower has been a reknown ingredients to be infused into Korean skincare, with antioxidant properties and skin-benefits nutrients, leaving the skin with healthy and clear-looking radiance.
To even make it better, they have added in Yehwadam's signature Gyu-Hwa-Bang Complex, which consists of Ginseng, Safflower and Goji Berry. For extra boost of collagen synthesis (reactivation of the new skin cells), skin hydration, reduction of signs of aging and inflammation prevention.

Plum Flower Revitalizing Toner
First off, always start with toner on cleansed face! I usually do it with a cotton pad, feeling the satisfaction during the wipe-off action and you will basically saw some 'yellow-ish' impurities on the cotton pad. I always feel cleansed after that haha!
The texture is pretty dilute, accompanied by a very refreshing floral scent. It's super moisturising the moment I apply on the skin, my skin feel soft and hydrated instantly. The overall finishing feels much like the post-application of essence toner to me.

Plum Flower Revitalizing Serum
The Plum Flower Revitalizing Serum consists of stabilised Ceramides, it helps strengthening skin's barrier while locking the skin's moisture, to prevent skin dryness and irritation.
The texture for serum is pretty thick and concentrated, leaving my skin with velvet smooth finish. Zero greasiness and zero stickiness. With no doubt, I love the overall finishing, sleeeeeek.

Plum Flower Revitalizing Cream
Super cute lid! Heart-shaped <3 Aww.
The texture is pretty thick, super moisturising that instantly it forms a moisture layer on my skin. Perfect for those who has tired and dry skin. It can help to restore skin elasticity and re-energize your skin!
My skin is hydrated and it feels plumpy after the application. Yet, it turns a little oily after hours, but still bearable.
But waking up the next day, my skin is a 'dang!' I feel soft, smooth and hydrated, like peeled-skin egg.
I think the Yehwadam Plum Flower Revitalizing Line is just perfect for those from aged 22 and above, with tiring/ overwhelming jobs, that causing stressed and tired skin. It helps to restore energy to your skin while getting rid of your signs of aging. Always remember to start 'anti-aging' early! Prevention is better than cure.

Hey guys! I am back!
If you have been my Instagram followers, you should have known that I have visited Sandakan, Sabah last month for 4 days 3 nights, and I have shared a lot of amazing pictures taken during the whole FAM trip on my Instagram page (@immateapot).

Kinabatangan River
FYI, Kinabatangan river is the second longest river in Malaysia. During the river cruise session, you may spot wildlife like orangutans, hornbills, proboscis monkeys, crocodiles, king fishers and more. You can get a shot of you, yourself sitting at the center of the boat to get that 'Venice shot' LOL. Remember to pair that with a vintage weave hat.

Along the river, we spotted an amazing spot where either side of the river was full of water hyacinth. We decided to travel right at the center, into the water plants for these few spectacular shots.

#3 Bilit Adventure Lodge

Should I said 'a place to get yourself digitally-detox?' I was quite surprised with my very first night staying here as it's totally like 'you're lost'. Yes. in the jungle. No WIFI, no line services, totally getting yourself digitally detached. 

But I pretty much like this place, to get myself a retreat stay-cation, just plainly enjoy the beauty of nature, see the wildlife near the lodge, get closely with your friends and families.

Bilit Adventure Lodge
I like the wooden walkway a lot. You guys know I always love symmetrical photographs haha.
To get to the lodge, you may need a 2.5 hours drive from town and crossing the river with boat for about 5 minutes, as it is just right opposite / beside the river.

#3 Rainforest Discovery Centre

A birdwatcher's paradise that you may found varieties of bird species, plants, trees and insects.
